the 'wipe israel off the map' hoax
the 'wipe israel off the map' hoaxfrom paul joseph watson: ...The Guardian's Jonathan Steele cites four different translations, from professors to the BBC to the New York Times and even pro-Israel news outlets, in none of those translations is the word "map" used.

In no version is the word "map" used or a context of mass genocide or hostile military action even hinted at.

OHIO 2004: 6.15% Kerry-Bush vote-switch found in probability study

How Kerry Votes Were Switched to Bush Votes
http://jqjacobs.net/politics/ohio.html

"In a sample of 166,953 votes (1/34th of the Ohio vote),
the Kerry-Bush margin changes 6.15% when the population
is sorted by outcomes of wrong-precinct voting.

"The 6.15% vote-switch differential is seen when the large
sample is sorted by probability a Kerry wrong-precinct
vote counts for Bush. When the same large voter sample is
sorted by the probability Kerry cross-votes count for
third-party candidates, Kerry votes are instead equal in both subsets."

A second, separate and larger sample confirms the pattern.
