(ABC) KENT CLIFFS, NY -- At least 150 people who attended a Mother's Day garden party at an upstate New York Buddhist monastery have fallen ill with food poisoning. Eric Gross, spokesman for the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services, says about 700 people were at the festival at Chuang Yen Monastery in Kent Cliffs, 55 miles north of New York City. About 500 of them came on buses from Chinatown. Gross says people starting getting sick with vomiting and diarrhea around 3:30 p.m. Sunday after they had left the party on buses bound for Woodbury Commons shopping outlets. As of 7 p.m., Gross said 150 had been taken to hospitals in Putnam, Orange and Westchester counties.If I seem a little hostile at the Buddhist community it is because I've noticed a lot of hostility from the Buddhist community towards other people. Meet https://t.co/ndra4T7G Jonathon Blakeley @jonathonblakele, who says: "Welcome to the Jewnited States of America"? Yeah... he's a Buddhist. I'm tired of their philosophy of nothingness... gets in the way of people with goals. Judaism is all about goals. Oh, but how Western of me.

(Carl) The Associated Press has obtained an image of an explosives containment chamber, used to test nuclear weapons, from Iran. An IAEA inspector has confirmed the image's authenticity.
The image was provided to The Associated Press by an official of a country tracking Iran's nuclear program who said the drawing proves the structure exists, despite Tehran's refusal to acknowledge it.The Iranians had no comment on the image. How much longer are we going to continue to pretend that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons? Read the whole thing.
The official said he could not discuss the drawing's origins beyond that it was based on information from a person who had seen the chamber at the Parchin military site, adding that going into detail would endanger the life of that informant.
His country, a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, is severely critical of Iran's assertions that its nuclear activities are peaceful and asserts they are a springboard for making atomic arms.
A former senior IAEA official said he believes the drawing is accurate. Olli Heinonen, until last year the UN nuclear agency's deputy director general in charge of the Iran file, said it was "very similar" to a photo he recently saw that he believes to be the pressure chamber the IAEA suspects is at Parchin. He said even the colors of the drawing matched that of the photo.
With Israel facing electricity shortages and possible brownouts this summer as a result of Egypt cutting off our natural gas supply, isn't it a bid odd that we continue to supply electricity (for free!) to Hamas-ruled Gaza alongside the Egyptians? Well, Environment Minister Gilad Erdan thinks it's more than odd. He wants to put a stop to it.Speaking in an interview with Army Radio, Erdan said that Gaza has its own power stations and legally, it is not clear that Israel is responsible for supplying power to Gaza, especially after Israel's 2005 disengagement from the terrotory. Gaza's power plant provides electricity to two-thirds of its population. Power is also supplied to the Gaza grid through power lines from Israel and Egypt.Yes, it's absurd. But when has that ever mattered in the Middle East?
Erdan said that it is "absurd" that Israel should experience power shortages while the "terror entity next to us will get electricity that they don't pay for." The Energy and Water Ministry expects shortages in Israel between June and September.
The environmental protection minister said that the four percent of power supplied to Gaza could prevent outages in Israel at times of peak usage.
Erdan stated that while "water and energy are supposed to be outside the conflict" if their is no choice and Israel needs the energy than he sees no legal obligation to provide Gaza with the electricity.
Egypt won't provide electricity either however... so it's going to be the Jew's fault
