Liberals may owe their political outlook partly to their genetic make-up, according to new research from the University of California, San Diego, and Harvard University. Ideology is affected not just by social factors, but also by a dopamine receptor gene called DRD4. The study’s authors say this is the first research to identify a specific gene that predisposes people to certain political views.
Appearing in the latest edition of The Journal of Politics published by Cambridge University Press, the research focused on 2,000 subjects from The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. By matching genetic information with maps of the subjects’ social networks, the researchers were able to show that people with a specific variant of the DRD4 gene were more likely to be liberal as adults, but only if they had an active social life in adolescence.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter affecting brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pleasure and pain. Previous research has identified a connection between a variant of this gene and novelty-seeking behavior, and this behavior has previously been associated with personality traits related to political liberalism.
Lead researcher James H. Fowler of UC San Diego and his colleagues hypothesized that people with the novelty-seeking gene variant would be more interested in learning about their friends’ points of view. As a consequence, people with this genetic predisposition who have a greater-than-average number of friends would be exposed to a wider variety of social norms and lifestyles, which might make them more liberal than average. They reported that “it is the crucial interaction of two factors – the genetic predisposition and the environmental condition of having many friends in adolescence – that is associated with being more liberal.” The research team also showed that this held true independent of ethnicity, culture, sex or age.
Fowler concludes that the social and institutional environment cannot entirely explain a person’s political attitudes and beliefs and that the role of genes must be taken into account. “These findings suggest that political affiliation is not based solely on the kind of social environment people experience,” said Fowler, professor of political science and medical genetics at UC San Diego.
“It is our hope that more scholars will begin to explore the potential interaction of biology and environment,” he said. “The way forward is to look for replication in different populations and age groups.”
The first author on the study is Jaime Settle, doctoral student in political science at UC San Diego. Settle’s and Fowler’s coauthors are Christopher Dawes, also of UC San Diego, and Nicholas Christakis, Harvard.
This research was supported by the National Institute on Aging and the National Science Foundation.
I'd think that novelty seekers would be individualists against the collective... and I really don't see how the state is perceived as a novelty.

On 3 November 2010, a communiqué – also dated 3 November 2010 – from the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) was released onto jihadist forums warning the Coptic Church in Egypt that the time had elapsed for Church authorities to release ‘our captive sisters’.
It comes three days after earlier messages from the ISI confirmed that the recent raid on a Baghdad church was conducted by the ISI in retaliation for alleged abductions of Christian converts to Islam in Egypt by Coptic religious authorities, and offered 48 hours for the Church to respond. In particular, it cited the alleged abduction and detention of Camiliya Shahata and Wafa Constantine.
Camiliya Shahata and Wafa Constantine, amongst others, are believed by the jihadist community to be willing converts to Islam from Egypt’s Christian community who were subsequently abducted by the Church against their will.
This communiqué warns that as their has been no prisoner release and no response from the Coptic Church authorities, the ISI views ‘all Christian institutes, organizations and agencies’ as ‘legitimate targets’.
It also provides details of the Baghdad church raid, saying the operation was carried out by five ISI fighters, who engaged Iraqi security forces (ISF) for over five ours before detonating their suicide vests. It claims that at least 60 members of the ISF were killed during the operation.
There is probably no single political action that has done more to prevent peace between Israel and the Arabs than the cynical exploitation of the descendants of the Arab refugees of the 1948 war. John Ging is the head of UNRWA, the UN refugee agency which does the dirty work of keeping the ‘Palestinian refugees’ living in camps for the Arab nations, who will agree to no form of resettlement except ‘return’ to Israel.
He’s the perfect guy for the job: here is a fact sheet on John Ging from NGO Monitor:
November 4, 2010
The Role of John Ging, UNRWA Director in Gaza, in Political Warfare
John Ging has been the head of the United Nation Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Gaza since 2006. In this role, Ging has promoted political warfare targeting Israel, as illustrated by the following quotes:
- Support for “Free Gaza flotillas” provoking violent confrontations with Israel: In May 2010, Ging expressed support for flotillas to Gaza, encouraging the world to “send ships to the shores of Gaza”: “Many human rights organizations have been successful in previous similar steps, and proved that breaking the siege on Gaza is possible.” In fact, most flotillas have been comprised of fringe activists from ISM, ICAHD, Viva Palestina, and the IHH terror organization. One week after Ging’s remarks, the “Free Gaza” flotilla initiated a violent confrontation with the Israeli navy, resulting in nine deaths.
- Promoting Palestinian victimization: “I am delighted that the Elders come again to Gaza…The truth that…we are in the fourth year of an illegal, inhumane and counterproductive blockade on 1.5 million innocent civilians…it has taken the tragic deaths of activists on a flotilla to generate this new level of political clarity and resolve… Whether it is realized or not depends on the triumph of truth over propaganda and legality over illegality. The fate of children well beyond the borders of Gaza is at stake.” (“Gaza: The simple truths that go untold,” John Ging, The Elders, October 16, 2010)
- “Stripped of their dignity”: “The situation is very desperate at the humanitarian level, I mean people have been stripped of their dignity here, it is a struggle to survive for every body.” (“UN aid chief to EI: Gaza people ‘stripped of their dignity’”, Electronic Initfada, November 25, 2008)
- “Sub-human existence” in Gaza: “There’s a very sub-human existence for the general population… The definitions of a humanitarian crisis are rather obscene when compared with just how people are having to struggle to survive here…” (“‘A disaster for everybody’”, Guardian UK, May 12, 2008)
- “Immoral equivalence” on Gilad Shalit (comparing the kidnapped Israeli soldier to Palestinian terrorists): “Equally, there must be action to end all violence emanating from Gaza into Israel and to secure the release of Gilad Shalit and Palestinians administratively detained in Israeli prisons, including more than 300 children.” (“Gaza: The simple truths that go untold,” John Ging, The Elders, October 16, 2010)
- Demonization of Israel: Ging’s condemnation of Israel for allegedly causing 43 civilian deaths in an UNRWA school in Jabalya, Gaza on January 6, 2009 fuelled false accusations of an Israeli “massacre” and demonization of Israel. Ging’s statements erased the fact that Hamas fighters were in the immediate vicinity of the school, and that the deaths occurred outside the school grounds. Three weeks later Ging admitted, “I know no one was killed in the school,” and acknowledged that all three Israeli mortar shells landed outside the school. (For more on Ging’s role, see CAMERA’s “UNRWA’s Omissions Distort Coverage of Jabaliya Tragedy,” February 4, 2009)***Does John Ging sound like a “pro-Israel” figure to you? Would you invite him to speak to people interested in peace in the Middle East?
Well, the phony ‘pro-Israel’ group J Street would:
J Street DC Metro and the Peace Café present a Two State/One District Dialogue — “A Conversation about Gaza” with John Ging, Director, Gaza Operations, United Nations Relief and Works Agency. Mr. Ging will be joined by Stephanie Fox, who works with UNWRA in Gaza. We will explore Director Ging’s and Ms. Fox’s experiences and the impact of unremitting conflict on the people of Gaza.And that’s not all. Recently J Street partnered with Yale’s “Students for Justice in Palestine” to present Anat Biletzki, an extreme left-wing academic from Tel Aviv University. Biletzki calls for a “right of return” for Arab ‘refugees’ and recently co-authored a study which purports to show that there would be less terrorism if Israel stopped defending herself.
While Ging and Biletzki have a right to speak in the US, even if they are advocating for Israel’s enemies and the destruction of the Jewish state, is it really the role of a “pro-Israel” organization to sponsor them?

The battle between YouTube and Turkish officials continued this week as Turkey reportedly unblocked and then re-blocked the Google-owned video site in the country over unflattering videos of the country's political leaders.
Turkey re-instated a ban on YouTube this week, days after a 2.5-year ban was lifted last Saturday, according to a state-run news agency. On Tuesday night, a Turkish court banned YouTube again, this time over an old video purportedly showing former opposition leader Deniz Baykal in a hotel room with someone other than his wife. Baykal was forced to resign over the video in May, according to The Guardian (...)
BRAVO! Saudi woman trade black niqabs for pink ones to promote breast cancer awareness « Bare Naked Islam's WeblogLabels: Islamic feminism» Saudi Arabia
On October 28, over 3,950 women in Saudi Arabia set a new world record by forming the largest human pink ribbon chain to raise global awareness of the battle against breast cancer. The rally took place at a stadium owned by the Ministry of Education in the Al-Rawdah neighbourhood of Jeddah. Our Observer explains why the event, organised by the Zahra Breast Cancer Association, means a lot more than a world record to Saudi women.Susie, 57, is an American woman who moved to Jeddha with her Saudi husband three years ago. She wrote this post about the pink ribbon rally in her blog, Susie’s Big Adventure.“I don’t know if the rest of the world actually realizes or appreciates what a seemingly impossible feat this was to achieve in a rigidly religious and male-dominated society like Saudi Arabia, where women are hidden behind black drapes when out in public. Logistically speaking, the odds were against us. Since females are prohibited from driving here in the “Magic Kingdom,” what that means is that every single woman who participated in the event – except those who may have been close enough to walk to the site – was driven to the venue by a man. During the event, there were no men allowed inside the stadium.”“I was told by an event organizer that the management of the stadium had initially refused to open the stadium to women. A call from higher powers quickly corrected that issue and the management was on board. Other male protesters in law enforcement and city government who voiced their objections were also quashed, and their objections turned into offers of assistance and support.”
“I also learned that the religious authorities were in a tizzy (no surprise here) over the fact that women would be gathering together en masse.However, at every turn the objectors were overruled. The event’s organizers had gone through all the proper channels, followed protocol, received approvals and official documents from every required governmental agency, and had the full support of the government to proceed with this monumental occasion. If it weren’t for the major clout backing this event, which was organised by Princess Reema bint Bandar bin Sultan and the Zahra Breast Cancer Association of which she is a founding member, women in Saudi Arabia would likely have never been able to pull it off.”
‘Women had never been allowed to attend any events in the stadium’For weeks beforehand, the old stadium was readied for the event. The bathrooms were renovated and the hole-in-the-ground toilets were replaced with regular seated toilets. I’m guessing that there are only men’s toilets at the facility since women had historically never been allowed to attend any events held there before this because of this society’s strict gender segregation policies.
Estimates suggest a total of about 6000 women attended.However some were unable to stay the entire time due to transport issues. The crowd was made up of not just Saudi women, but included expats from many countries around the world including the USA, England, Europe, and many Asian and African countries. Even in the sweltering heat and in the midst of only females, some of the women who came still felt compelled to wear their face veils because of all the cameras around.
‘Saudi women are more likely to wait until it’s too late to see a doctor’Breast cancer continues to be a major health problem for women in Saudi Arabia due to several contributing factors. Saudi women are more likely to wait to see a doctor until it’s too late and the cancer is already in advanced stages. Saudi women are less prone to be assertive about their own health issues. They are discouraged from asking questions, from reading about their disease and treatments, or from doing their own research. Saudi women have the legal standing of children and can be denied healthcare by their legal guardians, usually their fathers or husbands. Saudi women always live with the fear that their husbands will view them as ‘damaged goods’ and that the man may either divorce them in their time of need or take on a second wife. And then there is always the perceived embarassing nature and stigma of the disease itself.
We were disappointed when incoming Government Reform and Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa seemed to sidle up to Barack Obama by saying there was “not a chance” he would consider investigations that might lead to impeachment, at least “at this point.” Issa channeled Chris Matthews in his most recent pronouncement to reassure his implacable political foes.
On election night, just as House Minority Leader John Boehner finished his tearful victory speech, Issa told reporters on a conference call, “I want to prove the pundits wrong.” As he saw it, he said, “My job is not to bring down the president. My job is to make the president a success.”

It’s a stated fact everywhere from the media to academia to churches: Islam is the second-fastest growing religion. It will become the biggest religion during this century. Christianity is going out of style and Islam is the new kid on the block. We hear it from those wanting to give the Muslim community a bigger voice; from those complaining about Western ignorance; from those trying to put Islam on the same plane as Christianity and Judaism; and even in churches decrying the lack of evangelical fervor among the congregation. But is it really true?
It’s true that Islam (as well as atheism and universalism) is growing in the West, mostly because of high birth rates among Muslims and immigration, but the exploding growth of evangelical Christianity around the world through conversion is unreported. The analysis is distorted because of the lack of reporting from places like Africa, where nearly half of the population is estimated to be Christian.
In other places like China, news of such trends is suppressed, leaving few to know that some estimates put the Christian population there at up to 111 million. There may be more members in the underground evangelical movement there than in the 75-million strong Chinese Communist Party. It’s been reported that 10,000 Chinese convert to Christianity per day. That number may be a stretch, but if current trends hold, predictions that China will become the country with the largest number of Christians by the middle of the century could come true.
The image in one’s mind of a Christian is usually of an American or European. The decline of Christianity in the West gives the impression that the religion is collapsing when it is really transforming. In Dinesh D’Souza’s What’s So Great About Christianity, he writes that in 1900, over 80 percent of Christians lived in Europe and the U.S. Now, two out of three evangelicals live in Asia, Africa, and South America. South Korea now holds the title as the second-place country in sending out missionaries, despite the fact that the number one country, the U.S., has over six times as many people.
Another fact to consider is that while the number of Christians overall is declining in the West, the number of evangelicals is rising. There are less of those “Sunday Christians” who do the church routine and don’t make having a relationship with God part of their very being. They are falling away from church as it becomes more socially acceptable to do so and are turning to agnosticism, atheism, and a universalism that believes all religions are one and the same. Christianity is changing into a smaller but more devout and active force.
It is much harder to detect “Friday Muslims” in the Islamic world than it is “Sunday Christians” in the West because of the societal repercussions and the suppression of other religions. Those questioning their faith are likely to keep it private and still go to mosque even if they party on the weekends. The dismal state of the Islamic world economically and politically and the savagery of extremism is turning many Muslims away. For example, I’ve been surprised at how many Iranians I’ve communicated with are atheists or aren’t devout Muslims. There is a clandestine movement to acquire Bibles and practice Christianity in private homes, as up to 1 million are said to have turned to Christianity in the past five years.
This is a problem that raises significant concern in the Muslim world, but the West misses it. In April 2008, Andrew Walden wrote a top-notch piece here at Pajamas Media about this phenomenon. One top Islamic scholar in Libya says that 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity every day and Walden writes that evangelist Wolfgang Simpson says that “more Muslims have come to Christ in the last two decades than in all of history.” He writes that the mufti of the Malaysian state of Perak says that about 250,000 Muslims in his country have filed to officially leave Islam, including 100,000 that have converted to Christianity. The mufti warned that this number doesn’t include those who are non-practicing Muslims.
It is undeniable that Islam is growing in the West, but there are signs that the number of Muslims that don’t diligently practice the faith is increasing just as is the case with Christianity. In February 2005, the Sunday Times wrote that “one estimate suggests that as many as 15 per cent of Muslims in Western societies have lost their faith.” A Pew poll in July 2007 found that Muslim-Americans are in third place in how many describe religion as playing a “very important” role in their lives, with 72 percent affirming the statement as compared to 79 percent of white evangelicals and 85 percent of black Protestants. Most interestingly, only 50 percent of Muslim-Americans take their holy book, the Koran, literally, whereas 66 percent of white evangelicals and 68 percent of black Protestants take the Bible literally.
The religious makeup of the world is changing, but the media’s focus on the West is causing many to be blind to Islam’s losing of ground in the third world. Adam Housley reported for FoxNews.com in January 2003 that “most experts agree Christianity does have the most believers. And recent reports estimate that by 2025, that gap will widen even further, making Christianity by far the world’s largest religion.”
The geographic distribution of Christianity, specifically of the evangelicals, is changing as it spreads more evenly throughout the world. At more evangelical-oriented churches today, funds are raised to send missionaries to places like Africa, India, and South Korea. The day may soon come when it is these places that are reaching out to the U.S. and Europe.

Palestinians detained for questioning by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) face cruel conditions, disgraceful hygienic conditions, sleep deprivation and physical abuse, according to a new report released Tuesday by B’Tselem, The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, and HaMoked – Center of the Defense of the Individual.
punishing terrorists saves lives,
but Euro funded organizations
like killing Jews too much.
The report is based on the testimonies of 121 Palestinians who were held in the Shin Bet’s main detention facility in Petah Tikva throughout 2009.
The closure policy has “led to economic collapse in Gaza,” B’tselem charged in a 44-page report that looked at Gaza, the West Bank and east Jerusalem during the period from January 2009 to the end of April 2010.via jpost.com
suspected of violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The law, enacted in 1938, requires those acting as agents of foreign principles in a political or quasi-political capacity to disclose their relationship to the foreign principles and their activities.
B'Tselem and Peace Now both receive much of their funding from the European Union and individual European countries. As Bender wrote, “They have and continue to receive funds from European governments, and have an office in Washington D.C. that lobbies United States officials.”
B'Tselem, Israel's largest and best known human rights organization, took a donation last week from an organization that supports the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement against Israel.On October 25, 2010, B’Tselem announced a donation from a group known as “Bubbes and Zaydes for Peace” (BZP); Executive Director Jessica Montell wrote on Twitter, “I don't know the group but it brought a big smile to my face.”The loyal opposition? Hardly. Traitors would be a better description.
Due diligence would have revealed that BZP endorses the antisemitic BDS (boycotts, divestment, sanctions) movement and employs the demonizing rhetoric of the Durban strategy – in violation of B’Tselem’s stated principles and growing adoption of ethical guidelines, such as by the New Israel Fund.
NGO Monitor wrote to B’Tselem informing the NGO of BZP’s BDS advocacy and asking whether the donation would be refused. B’Tselem responded that it was “honored to receive [the] contribution.”
BZP, based in Philadelphia, claims to work towards “justice in the Middle East.” Using its disarming name to mask its agenda, “Bubbes and Zeydes” participated in Israeli Apartheid Week by hanging “BOYCOTT ISRAELI APARTHEID!” signs on major Philadelphia highways. The group demonstrated outside local cellphone stores that sell Motorola phones, in order to “call on the corporation to cease producing and selling equipment to the Israeli army to prevent its involvement in future abuses.”
BZP members also joined “Divestment Teach-ins.” BZP co-sponsored a Sabeel Conference at Villanova in March 2008. Sabeel is a leader in the church divestment campaign, and uses antisemitic imagery and theology to demonize Israel.

Of 25 competitive races in which Jstreet endorsed, their candidates lost in 14 races, including in all three Senate races.
We have seen, to the chagrin of the left, more attention in an off-year election on Israel than we get in most presidential races. The Emergency Committee for Israel and the Republican Jewish Coalition have reasons to crow. ECI made Joe Sestak its top priority, featured him in its debut ad, and remained a thorn in his side throughout the race. The RJC spent an unprecedented amount of money on the race. These groups didn’t target Joe Sestak by accident or pick an easy race. Sestak was the quintessential faux pro-Israel liberal — touting his support for the Jewish state but signing onto the Gaza 54 letter, headlining for CAIR, and refusing to break with the president on his offensive against the Jewish state. For precisely these reasons, J Street made him its top priority. Sestak lost in a tough race. Was Israel a factor? In a close race, it is hard to say it wasn’t. The question for liberal Democrats is this: why take on the baggage of J Street for such little help and so many headaches?
J Street’s other Senate endorsees lost as well (Robin Carnahan and Russ Feingold). In the House races, their endorsees lost in 11 races. Shoe-in Democrats won in seven races that were not in doubt. However, once ECI targeted the NJ-12, that safe Dem seat became competitive, with Democratic Rep. Rush Holt eventually winning by seven points. Several races are still outstanding.
The election demonstrated two things. First, J Street is a weight around the necks of its selected candidates. Second, the voters, Jewish and not, heard more about Israel than in an ordinary midterm and dumped some of the worst Israel-bashers in the House, including Mary Jo Kilroy and Kathy Dahlkemper. The takeaway: voters remain overwhelmingly pro-Israel, and should candidates want to avoid the impression that they are not, they’d do well to steer clear of the foreign-funded J Street.

Do you have any romantic comedy with Sean Connery?
Actually no ‘mam…, I don’t…, I don’t think he did any of those.
I thought this was a video store.
Well it is. But I don’t think Mr. Connery did a romantic comedy. . Perhaps something with Anthony Hopkins?
Oh, too bad. Mr. Connery is so sexy! He should get romantic leads. Hopkins is nice…, but he scares me… I was hoping for an older James Bond Teddy Bear!

I knew Rodney Dangerfield. I have a funny yet sad story about him. He certainly did not get the respect he wanted. During the late 90’s for some reason Dangerfield lost most of his fortune,,, (I think it had something to do with his comedy club that was poorly managed and went under) that is why he started doing bad movies like Ladybug. At any rate I think he was marginally homeless but still had a pass to all the expensive health clubs in Los Angeles. I worked at one club in Century City where “The Menendez Brothers” and Billy Dee Williams worked out together. You could always see the guy who played Mr. Roper in Three’s Company in the hot tub. My friend “SBAS”, came to me and informed me that he had just come out of the steam room with Rodney Dangerfield and that he saw something bizzare. I was not impressed. It was no news that Rodney used the club and I was not surprised that Dangerfield would be acting peculiar either..
“You don’t understand”, SBAS said.
“No” I said “I don’t”
SBAS insisted I go into the steam room to check up on Rodney.
I walked into the steam room and Rodney looked real pissed off. He was completely naked and was spitting on the steam room floor. Then I noticed something quite frightening. Between his legs were two of the largest testicles I have ever seen in my life. They were as big as grapefruit.
He had huge balls. Literally. I kid you not.
I guess he didn’t get any respect.
