Ten years later, a chief terrorist speaks of 'army terrorism'                                                                                                                                                                                               Ten years after a military coup d'etat drove Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a chief terrorist, out of the office of the Haitian presidency, ultimately sending him into exile, first to Venezuela and then to the United States, for a period of three years, Aristide Saturday marked in the western city of Gonaives the 10th anniversary of the said coup.                                                                                                                                                                                          Speaking to a few hundreds city residents - many of them were urged to attend, and there would be free food, they were told - tyrant Aristide equated the September 29, 1991 military coup to the September 11, 2001 terrorist acts in the United States. However, no mention of thousands of political opponents he ordered burned alive and the many largely fraudulent elections he held last year were made.

Haiti is a dictatorship, says Amnesty International  

Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's de facto president, is a chief bandit and tyrant in a three-piece suit. He burns alive and kidnaps political opponents. Still, he calls Haiti a democracy. But, according to Amnesty International Human Rights Report 2001 Haiti is rather a dictatorship.

In Haiti, a terrorist threat                                                                                                                                                                                            Less than two weeks after a warrant for the arrest of Rene Civil, a well terrorist and senior member of radical leftist Jean-Bertrand Aristide, was issued by Haitian de facto authorities his supporters Thursday said if he is taken out of the circulation they will take to the streets, destroying everything they can, to force authorities to release him.                                                                                                                                                                                               In another development, well-armed bandits killed two people Thursday at a commercial bank in the capital city of Port-au-Prince while a robbery was in progress.                                                                                                                                                                                              Also, in many Haitian cities prayer services have been held for the victims of the the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. "This was an attack against humanity," father Geatan Boursiquot, a Catholic priest said in a sermon.                                                                                                                                                                                              Here in Boston, Massachusetts, close to 1,000 Haitian-Americans Thursday evening held a vigil in that city's section of Mattapan, which ended with a mass at the nearby St. Angelas' Church.

A memorial service in Haiti                                                                                                                                                                                               A memorial service for the victims of the August 11 terrorist attacks in the United States was held Tuesday in Haiti. In attendance at the said service were many of Haiti's democratic opposition leaders, including the Caribbean de facto President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his wife Mildred Trouillot-Aristide. Brian Dean Curran, the United States ambassador also attended.                                                                                                                                                                                                  "It is now the time for us we Haitians to grieve with the American people," democratic opposition leader Evans Paul said. More than 6,000 Haitians have signed condolences books at his political party headquarters.                                                                                                                                                                                              More memorial services will be held around the country in the next few days, Catholic priests and Protestant ministers said.                                                                                                                                                                                                      In another development, Haiti's de facto prime minister, Jean-Marie Cherestal, is said to have called it quit over allegations of  corruption. Mr. Cherestal, who became prime minister last February has been accused by de facto Senator Flaurel Celestin of pillaging the country's public treasury, causing it to be more than two million dollars poorer.

No money has come in since Tuesday," many taxi drivers Friday said.                                                                                                                                                                                            Fearing that terrorists might attack U.S. institutions and others in Haiti, the de facto government of radical leftist Jean-Bertrand Aristide has reinforced security at all of those institutions.                                                                                                                                                                                                  In a September 12 press release, the Mouvement Patriotique Pour Le Sauvetage National (MPSN), a Haitian political party, whose spokesperson is Dr. Hubert de Ronceray, conveyed its condolences to U.S. President George W. Bush and his fellow American compatriots.                                                                                                                                                                                             

Haitian judge tells Lavalas police to nab terrorists                                                                                                                                                                                            Claudy Gassant, an investigative judge in the early morning of April 3, 2000 brutal murder of  prominent Haitian radio journalist Jean Leopold Dominique in the front yard of his Radio Haiti Inter station, issued early this week warrants for the arrest of Paul Raymond, Rene Civil, and Ronald Camille, better known as Ronald Cadaver.                                                                                                                                                                                                The three well known terrorists are all members of radical leftist and chief bandit Jean-Bertrand Aristide's Lavalas Family Party.                                                                                                                                                                                              Camille, whose surname has long been changed, though unofficially so, to Cadaver, in tribute for murdering an exorbitant number of Haitian citizens and others, early this week gunned down a partner in crime in front of the Haitian Congress building in downtown Port-au-Prince.                                                                                                                                                                                                   In another development, early last week a Haitian woman was gunned down by a Dominican Republic police officer. Another Haitian woman was wounded by the same officer.                                                                                                                                                                                              While a Lavalas mayor went public early last week, saying that the illegal regime of Aristide was a fiasco, suggesting that it has failed to improve the quality of live in Haiti, not even a handful of citizens responded to calls for a pro-Aristide's demonstration in the provincial city of Saint-Marc, forcing organizers to cancel the public event.

Haiti struggles to educate its children

By Trenton Daniel

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Sept 9 (Reuters) - In a cinder-block classroom perched on a hilltop in Haiti's Carrefour-Feuilles district, teacher Jean Jacques Pierre stood at a chalkboard, easing almost two dozen students into the Caribbean nation's first day of school at the private College Mixte Bethel.                                                                                                                                                                                          "Where are we? Pierre asked his students, who were between the ages of 6 and 10.                                                                                                                                                                                         "Haiti," chimed the children, sporting their new uniforms, plaid shirts and navy blue trousers and skirts.                                                                                                                                                                                                 The students were among the few fortunate enough to be in school on opening day last Monday as Haiti's faltering economy crimped parents' plans to buy education for their children.                                                                                                                                                                                             Haiti's government opened schools as planned last week, despite calls from parents and the teachers' union to delay the start of classes to allow Haitians more time to gather money and supplies for their children.                                                                                                                                                                                                But most of the classrooms at Mixte Bethel were empty and teachers and staff stood idly by. Only about two dozen students showed up the first day at a school that can accommodate 250.                                                                                                                                                                                                Not all the students are able to come," said the Rev. Joseph Daniel Charles, an education advisor at the school and a teacher for 16 years. "We have an economy the country and the situation is very difficult."                                                                                                                                                                                              Between 10 percent and 20 percent of Haiti's schools are + ith no monthly fees. At the rest, parents must pay up to 200 as an entry fee plus $10 to $60 a month to send their children to class - difficult to manage in a country where  per capital annual income is around $400.

Woman, whose breasts were not long ago fondled by tyrant Aristide tells husband and close friends she might have been impregnated by him                                                                                                                                                                                                  The wife of Patrick Manigat, a former employee at the Haitian national palace, Wednesday had something else to tell her husband other than her breasts being fondled by tyrant Jean-Bertrand Aristide. "I have been sleeping with Jean-Bertrand Aristide. I don't know. Maybe I am now carrying his child."                                                                                                                                                                                                

De facto Haitian education minister calls it quit                                                                                                                                                                                          Georges Merisier, who on March 2 became a de facto education minister in the illegitimate government of Haiti's radical leftist and chief bandit Jean-Bertrand Ariristide, announced today that he had resigned his post, but declined to explain the reason that prompted him to no longer be a member of a government that the international community has refused to recognize because of a series of largely fraudulent elections organized last year by Aristide and former leftist Haitian President Rene Preval.                                                                                                                                                                                              The resignation of Merisier, a former staff member of Haiti's Department of Education before becoming minister of education, came just one day after the beginning of the school year.                                                                                                                                                                                               Very few students from the 45 percent Haitian children who attend grade school and 15 percent who attend secondary school, according to the United States State Department, were in class Monday because their parents did not have the money to pay their tuition, buy them books and uniforms.                                                                                                                                                                                              And early this week, Aristide's bandits stoned "Maison Herie Deschamps", a privately owned book publishing company, accusing it of over pricing its books.

In Miami, a protest for green cards                                                                                                                                                                                               "We want green cards, too," said a significant number of Haitians who took to the streets of Miami today, protesting United States' decision to legalize only millions of illegal Mexican citizens who have long resided in the U.S. while thousands of citizens from the Caribbean country of Haiti and other nations face deportation.                                                                                                                                                                                            

Haitian democratic leader asks tyrant Aristide to quit de facto presidency                                                                                                                                                                                               Rene Julien, a prominent Haitian attorney who is the president of the political party known as "Action Democratique Pour Batir Haiti" or Action Democratic to Built Haiti this week, this week sent a letter to radical leftist Jean-Bertrand Aristide, asking him to in the days to come resign the office of the presidency, which he has illegally occupied since February 7.                                                                                                                                                                                              Julien recently publicly said that he will do everything that is in his power to force the grossly incompetent Aristide, who loves to burn opponents alive, out of office.                                                                                                                                                                                        

Lavalas cops gang rape jounalists's sister                                                                                                                                                                                               They had no arrest warrants. Nor did they have a search warrant. Still, in the late hours of August 10, 2001 tyrant Jean-Bertrand Aristide's police officers or Lavalas police officers, led by Garry Wanch, forced their way into the house of Radio Vision 2000's journalist, Donald Jean, pretending to be looking for guns and kidnapped his sister, Nerlande Jean, who was later gang raped, tortured and jailed by the police officers of the same.                                                                                                                                                                                              Donald Jean, who has been very critical of tyrant Aristide, left Haiti for Canada to avoid been burnt alive.                                                                                                                                                                                           

Haitian judge asks police to nab notorious bandits                                                                                                                                                                                               Claudy Gassant, an investigative judge in the early morning of April 2, 2000 brutal murder of Haitian prominent radio journalist Jean Leopold Dominique, this week issued two warrants for the arrest of notorious criminals Rene Civil and Paul Raymond.                                                                                                                                                                                                Civil, who not long ago was told by the United States Consular Office in Haiti that he was engaged in criminal activities and as a result he would not be issued a visa, which would allow him to visit the U.S., has bloody hands. So, too, is Raymond. Even if both notorious criminals could barely read, still they would experience difficulties enumerating the number of Haitians they have murdered.

Enraged husband orders wife to quit palace job after radical leftist Aristide fondles her breasts                                                                                                                                                                                           Less than three years since tyrant Jean-Bertrand Aristide's downloaded wife, Mildred "Minouch" Trouillot-Aristide, reportedly caught him on a couch on the first floor of their sumptuous residence in the Tabare suburb of Port-au-Prince with then Haitian President Rene Preval in the middle of the night an enraged Patrick Manigat this week ordered his wife to quit her Haitian national palace job after he learned that Aristide fondled her breasts, said a de facto government official we can trust.                                                                                                                                                                                                "Yea, your breasts are very, very soft. I really enjoyed touching them," Aristide reportedly told Mrs. Manigat afterward.                                                                                                                                                                                                 The de facto government official also told us that in conversations with friends, including himself, a tearful Manigat said "she is my wife, but not his mistress. I guess Aristide is sleeping with all of the women in the palace.", the scholarly journal of democracy and human rights
