After Rome had crushed the Jewish revolt of 70 AD, a small group of Jewish zealots still held out atop the mountain fortress of Masada in the desert wilderness. Nearly all of them committed suicide, rather than be captured by the Romans. The meaning of Masada, and the facts, are still disputed. This is part of a free video presenting a 1995 trip to Israel and Petra, Jordan. The video includes Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee, Golan Heights, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Masada & the Dead Sea. Jewish, Islamic, and Christian holy places are all presented. (The movie reflects a time of optimism regarding the peace process, and the viewer should approach it from the context of 1995.)

The Tea Party Revolt Against Unconstrained Spending and Growth of the Federal Government. From Sarasota to Seattle, something incredible, unprecedented and heartening is occurring: People are coming together to take back their country. They’re saying “enough is enough” to big-government schemes that serve only to fleece our pockets. “Enough” to growth of federal power, and “enough” to the expansion of so-called “rights” that just add more layers of bureaucracy.

BY DANIEL EDMONDS You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni rolls to an easy victory. Opponents and critics say, Museveni stole the election. Now, the opposition may call for a revolt in the streets. Election results released over the weekend show Musevi won an unprecedented fourth term in office, pushing his rule to 30 years in the African country. The BBC reports on the support and influence Museveni has gained through his presidency. “His popularity stems in part from the fact that he led the country to stability after years of turmoil and he often tells Ugandans, if you want to keep the peace, stick with me.” That popularity was bolstered with younger voters. Museveni reinvented himself as -- rap artist -- at a rally last year, and Museveni became a hit with the young people who make up 60% of the Uganda population. “I can even give you some rap myself. I cut a stem from a small tree which then ran away. It ran away to Igara. Igara, at the home Ntambiko. Ntambiko gave me a knife. I gave the knife to harvesters of millet. The Harvesters of millet gave me a sheath of millet. I gave the millet to the lion.” But Museveni’s rhythmic talents are not enough to distract his critics who include international monitors. Indeed, TIME notes, many see Museveni as a dictator, who has stopped at nothing to retain power. “Since seizing power in 1986... Museveni has become synonymous with widespread corruption and failing services such as healthcare and education. Indeed, his campaign slogan... ‘Prosperity for all, better service delivery and job creation’ … is seen by many not as a promise of good things to come, but an admission of what he has not managed to achieve in his 25 years in power.” And while many note the peaceful nature of the elections thus far, The Economist, Museveni also has a history of having rigged prior elections. “Mr Museveni has decided to buy his way back into office. He has personally distributed brown envelopes stuffed with cash to lucky peasants, teachers and officials up and down the country. The election is the most expensive in Ugandan history.” Museveni’s opponent, Kizza Besigye, who has lost to Museveni for a third time, has issued the opposition’s rejection notice. Besigye has repeatedly said his supporters could take to the streets in an “Egypt-style revolt.” For now, Museveni remains president with a new five year term which will require him to plan out Uganda’s arrival on the oil scene as a top-50 producer.

BY SAM JOSEPH / JIM FLINK You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Going in guns ablazing, half blind. That’s how one headline characterizes the situation in Libya -- where western coalition forces are backing the de facto neutralization of strongman Muammar Ghadaffi. But who are these Libyan rebels? And are they a better alternative -- from a western perspective -- to Ghadaffi? Arizona GOP Senator John McCain tells CBS news -- yes. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ): “Ghadaffi is a proven quantity. He had the blood of Americans is on his hands. Uh, because he has been involved in other acts of terror and by the way it does take time.” What is unproven -- is the opposition. London’s Financial times describes -- it’s comprised of local officials scrambling to form a cohesive national appearance. “Libya, one of the region’s most closed societies, is very different from its north African neighbours, with no established opposition groups, civil society groups or strong state institutions..In an effort to fill the vacuum, lawyers, academics, businessmen and youths who participated in the ‘February 17 revolution’ formed committees to organise themselves and run cities and towns.” STRATFOR notes, running cities and towns is quite different from running a nation. Especially a nation that for 40 years -- has been so fractured. “Libyan society is by definition tribal and therefore prone to fractiousness. The Gadhafi era .. promoted local governance more than a truly national system of administration... it will create difficulties should they try to truly come together.” But the New York Times David Kirkpatrick tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper, even with that uncertainty, the prospect of even a possible democracy emerging from the chaos in North Africa, makes the West willing to hedge its bets. (David Kirkpatrick:) "The people who are leading this revolt are certainly talking about a constitution, about human rights, about western style democracy. So there's an overlay here. And the question that's becoming increasingly important for the west, because they're getting involved militarily, is which is it really? Which is gonna predominate? If the rebels win, are you gonna see a kind of rough, tribal justice meted out against the west, the western part of Libya that is, or are you going to see them living up to these promises?" Even if the opposition could coalesce, The Guardian’s Alex Warren says, the West simply doesn’t have enough information to assure a desirable outcome -- and should be wary of going in guns ablazing. “It is worrying, for instance, that the Western powers seem to believe that the opposition leaders in Benghazi represent the will of the entire country. Yes, the vast majority of Libyans do not want Colonel Gaddafi in power, and no one but his closest supporters would miss him, but that does not necessarily mean that Libyans will support those new leaders once he has gone.” And on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski says, the cost of the west not intervening is too great to leave the issue alone. “But now that we’re committed, we have to be aware that we are committed. We cannot turn back. We have to prevail. The definition of prevailing is we stop the killing, but in practice it means that Ghadaffi is no longer around.” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY MARIA LOPEZ Anchor: Christina Hartman You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. In post-Mubarak Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood has gained influence and seems to have developed a closer relationship with the military council ruling the country. Analysts say the recent rise of the Islamist group worries secular activists who started the revolution. One Egyptian television producer expresses his concerns about to The New York Times. “We are all worried, the young people have no control of the revolution anymore. It was evident in the last few weeks when you saw a lot of bearded people taking charge. The youth are gone.” And according to reports -- freedom of expression is being taken away as well. The military council last week endorsed a plan to outlaw demonstrations. And CNN reports Egyptian soldiers detained and abused civilians involved in the revolt. RAMY ESAM, REVOLUTIONARY MUSICIAN: "The torture took four hours, they removed my clothes. They used sticks, metal rods, wires, ropes, hoses, whips. There was also electrocution. There was an officer who would purposely jump in the air and land on my face with his legs." CNN REPORTER: “Esam was one of scores of male protesters detained during this crackdown by security forces on Tahrir Square on March 9th. Troops also arrested at least 17 women who were kept for days at a military detainment center.” And according to The Telegraph, the world shouldn’t be surprised. “In a thoughtful report, the International Crisis Group observed that ‘the role of Islamist activists grew as the confrontation became more violent and as one moved away from Cairo; in the [Nile] Delta in particular, their deep roots and the secular opposition’s relative weakness gave them a leading part.” The Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders announced they will seek only a third of the seats in parliament and won’t run a candidate to replace Hosni Mubarak as President, they do expect to have a big say in Egypt’s future.

BY YIQIAN ZHANG ANCHOR SALEM SOLOMON You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy. At least two people were killed and over 100 injured in Uganda’s capital Friday over the capture of an opposition leader. BBC has the details. “…plain-clothed police and security forces fighting with supporters of Uganda’s main opposition leader Kizza Besigye. He’s trapped in the white jeep. They battered their way in and fired pepper spray. He’s then bundled out of the car and dumped into a police truck.” Besigye has been leading protests in recent months over high food and fuel prices in Uganda. And while he was released Thursday on bail, the Ugandans held an unprecedented riot Friday. But Al Jazeera reports, the government isn’t backing down. “The government has so far refused to lower fuel taxes. Their response has been a clear signal that any unrest will not be tolerated. MINSTER: ‘You know that the police has the power to even shoot you to death…’” According to The Guardian, some wonder if the unrest is fueled by revolts in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. But Besigye himself is hesitant to draw comparisons. The Guardian quotes him as saying – “The only parallel goes to the extent that people are discontented with what is going on and their governments are non-responsive. There is a loss of trust between the regime and the people. I think that is the only parallel I can see." An editorial from Uganda’s The Observer calls for peace and tolerance -- while still holding the government responsible for its actions. “The display of bravado and impunity by state agents on Thursday can only remind Ugandans of past regimes that this government hates to be compared with. … Ugandans must say no to a return to the past. Uganda is big enough for all of us, regardless of our political, ethnic and religious differences.” But a Foreign Policy blogger says the riots are... just riots, and won’t go any further than that. "Uganda has had sharp increases in fuel and food prices due to drought and international oil fluctuations, and the opposition seized the opportunity to mobilize public dissatisfaction …But while the protests are getting more attention for the opposition, they don't necessarily mean progress.” ‘Like’ Newsy on Facebook for more World news.

Went into a cubicle in a nightclub and granted there was wee on the floor, but that is no big shock as there always is, bad aimers!! But what I could not believe was somebody had peed in the toilet paper dispenser. What a sicko...and they needed a better aim to do it than directing a basin that is much bigger!
