Never before have I wanted to watch reality TV so badly!! ... (Galloway's odds at winning the competition on Paddy Power at the time of this posting are 9-1.)

In the statement read by masked, armed men, the terrorists did not acknowledge involvement in the abductions. "We condemn the kidnappings of foreigners and we consider this a violation of the Palestinian national agreement," the statement said.

  • Did Jesus exist? Italian court to decide

    An Italian court is tackling Jesus -- and whether the Roman Catholic Church may be breaking the law by teaching that he existed 2,000 years ago.
