And you thought...

"Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots" was a pretty cool Christmas gift...

The disc - part of an Egyptian-made series - is on sale in West Yorkshire, where three of the July 7 bombers lived, and is aimed at youngsters from the local Muslim community.

Introduced by a cute cartoon chicken, it contains three songs in Arabic which are illustrated with a video story.

But any impression of its being an innocent music DVD is immediately dispelled by a song with English subtitles about two children who lose their mother when she blows herself up in a suicide bomb attack.

"You like it rough... yeah, sure...we can do that."
Hamas offered Israel the truce a day after 13 Palestinian militants, including two top commanders, were killed in a wave of Israeli air strikes in Gaza.

Israel launched the raids in response to daily Palestinian rocket attacks.

Why do newspapers and TV News like CTV always put things like "Israel launched the raids in response to daily Palestinian rocket attacks" at the end of their articles? It seems like it is thrown in at the end as if in passing almost like it doesn't really matter.

it's kinda the fine print disclaimer... but anyone that's writen an article for a paper or news cast knows the ordering of any article is such that the end of each paragraph can be the end of the entire article....so story's that are running long can be cut... they seem to want to get there message out front and center and by the time they get to facts it's time to go to commercial
