"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Hmm. Interesting footnote on the MKO issue in Europe. Germany will not close down the MKO offices.

Contrary to France, Germany will not close offices of the MKO terrorist grouplet, however Berlin continues to regard the Iraq-based group as a terrorist organization, a senior German Interior Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told IRNA here Friday.

"I am not aware of any plans to close the offices of the (MKO) organization," the official said.

"There has been no (German) policy change towards this group. Our domestic intelligence service will continue to monitor the (MKO) activities and we are still viewing the group as terrorists," he added.
