Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Witness says Sept. 11 suspect a fanatic

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) -- A former roommate of a Moroccan man on trial for allegedly helping the Sept. 11 plotters portrayed him Tuesday as a fanatic who sympathized with terrorist attacks and backed the death sentence imposed by Iran on author Salman Rushdie.

Bernd Frost, a 34-year-old construction engineer, shared a student apartment with defendant Abdelghani Mzoudi in 1995 and 1996. He said Mzoudi had a "very crass view" of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and expressed a preference for Germany over America because "the United States was more Jewish."

Frost said the two also discussed the issue of terrorist attacks — a discussion that apparently sprang from the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jet over Lockerbie, Scotland.

"He said he would also back attacks if children were victims — because, he said, small Jews grow up to be big," Frost told the Hamburg state court. [...]
Fanatic, huh? Y'think so?
