    The following apology appears in the print edition of today’s Toronto Star: 'A column by Heather Mallick on July 28 contained a number of inaccurate statements about the well-known British journalist and author Melanie Phillips. Ms. Phillips has expressed her horror at the slaughter at Utoya, Norway in a clear and unambiguous way, writing “there can be no excuse, justification or rationale whatsoever for the atrocity perpetrated by Anders Behring Breivik.” The column made reference to Ms. Phillips’ writings in an entirely misleading and inappropriate manner.' The defamatory article has been removed from our website. The Star and Ms. Mallick regret the errors and apologize to Ms. Phillips.'

The police are conducting a murder investigation, and one suspect has been arrested.

    Glad to see others also realising that organised agitation as well as opportunistic anarchy has been fuelling the British riots, which have now spread from London to other cities.

    Here is some news about the Arabs of Gaza and the West Bank that the western media has for some unaccountasble reason failed adequately to report.

    As London descends into anarchy this evening, with disturbances, arson, looting and other criminality breaking out in one borough after another for the third night running, it is clear that this is organised disorder, with thugs being dispatched to provoke and escalate hooliganism and rioting from area to area through use of social media and apparently now, the more secure BlackBerries.
