020 Podcast highlights attacks on Jews from October 15 2005

First Broadcast October 15, 2005: In this week’s edition of Shire Network News, the official podcast of Silent Running, Laurence Simon talks about the non-story about how George Bush came to be quoted as saying G0d talks to him. The media’s unimpeachably solid source for this? The Palestinian political leadership! Riiiight.Our Man in London speculates about which loser has-been is going to be selected to lead the Tory Party to it’s next inevitable crushing defeat, and our feature interview is with blogger Meryl Yourish, about her concerns that Israel is being held to a double standard, and that Jews are reliving the 1930s.

Also in the program, an alternative use for the BBC‘s news theme Lillibulero, the BBC try to show that Jews are just making it up about being in danger and Melanie Phillips probably wishes she hadn’t participated in the documentary, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder leaves office with characteristic charm and diplomacy, what the European papers are really saying about America in their own languages, the New Zealand media spazzes out over church members speaking to politicians, British playwright Harold Pinter wins this year’s Novel Prize for Anti-American Lunacy, a soldier involved in the alleged “staged chat” with the President hits back at the media for misrepresenting it, a lefty luvvie Australian playwright gets trapped on a cruise ship full of Kath and Kim clones and sees a metaphor for the destruction of the Lucky Country, while commenters on Tim Blair’s site point and laugh.

015 Podcast withdraws from Gaza from August 28 2005

First broadcast August 28, 2005: In this week’s edition of Shire Network News, the official podcast of Silent Running, Our Man in London talks about the BBC Panorama program which accuses allegedly moderate Islamic spokesmen of extremism, and the latest from the life and death struggle against the most insidious force for evil in the world today – Chris Martin and Coldplay.

We talk to Israeli blogger Dave, from Israellycool, about how the orange side of Israeli society view the Gaza pullout, and we get the blue and white perspective from Jewish political activist and former IDF officer Ted Lapkin. Dave has his own podcast by the way, which I personally reccomend.

Also mentioned, fact-checking the New York Times (now there’s a full time occupation), Condoleeza Rice, the blog Jewish Current Isuues, Mariam Sobh and her amazing fake Ariel Sharon quotes, National Public Radio, SolomoniaLittle Green Footballs, Genghis Khan versus a Unitarian prayer circle, Victor Davis Hanson versus Arianna Huffington’ the return to blogging of Australia’s own Magrot Kgnitson, her exceptionally relaxed policy on how much work you have to do to qualify for a four week break, why blogs are breaking the Egyptian government’s grip on information, 23 year old Cairo-based blogger Alaa FattahBig Pharoah, the reason why Jesse Jackson has that funky expression on his face courtesy of Meryl Yourish, and Harry’s Place.

And as always we bring you the Full of Crap Report from Laurence Simon.
