`OUR belief is that this war between us and the Jews will continue to escalate until we vanquish the Jews and enter Jerusalem as conquerors [and] enter Jaffa [adjacent to Tel Aviv] as conquerors. We are not merely expecting a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital; we are heralding [the creation of] an Islamic caliphate with Jerusalem as its capital." An excerpt of a sermon Sept. 21 by Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi delivered at the Sheikh 'Ijlin mosque in Gaza and broadcast by Palestinian Authority Television.

I don't know about you, but watching the movie "Lincoln" sent me to the bookshelf and Internet to learn more about political wrangling over the adopition of the 13th Amendment. The movie was a great political science lesson, but it was obvious that Steven Spielberg's epic was a big-screen CliffsNotes version of history. It was imposible to include all of the back stories involving Cabinet members and members of Congress. For example, I wanted to know much, much more about why legislators in my home state of Connecticut voted against the amendment.

In January 1988, metro reporter David Simon left The Sun to spend a year with the Baltimore Police Department's homicide unit and then write a book about it. The result -- "Homicide: AYear on the Killing Streets" -- is a fine book, a you-don't-want-to-put-it-down book, but it wasn't an easy book to excerpt for the magazine. The stories are too tightly xTC interwoven. What you'll find starting on Page 8 are the circumstances of two homicides -- perhaps a third of Chapter Four of the book.Our excerpt ends with the murders of Lena Lucas and Purnell Booker still unsolved; to find out whodunit, you'll have to buy tomorrow's and Tuesday's papers.

An excerpt of a Chicago Tribune editorial that was published yesterdayAn excerpt of a Chicago Tribune editorial that was published yesterday: MATTHEW Shepard, a 105-pound, 5-foot 2-inch, soft-spoken wisp of a kid, couldn't have been much of a threat to anyone. Yet he had been assaulted twice in recent months and last week he was pistol-whipped, strung up spread-eagle against a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyo. He died five days later.It's an inconceivable crime that yet cries out for an explanation.

Folks craving a taste of the avant-garde can be grateful for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where music far off the beaten path is practically the rule. There was another welcome shot of it Wednesday night, when vocalist/composer Meredith Monk took the stage of the Fine Arts Recital Hall and proceeded to lead her audience on a remarkable journey through sound. Monk, a significant force in new music for more than three decades now, underscores the concept of the human voice as the first great instrument.

Having just spent a very busy weekend with adorable, 4-year-old twin girls who were visiting with my nephew, I was extremely interested in the sight-seeing tips from Jill Smokler, the Baltimore-based Scary Mommy blogger who recently released "Confessions of a Scary Mommy. " Smokler provided the Baltimore Sun with her Top Five best -- and worst -- places to take the kids . I missed all of them over the weekend, instead falling back on the National Aquarium , which I've found to be a very entertaining, if very expensive, spot for kids of all ages.

Here are excerpts of President Barack Obama's remarks as prepared for delivery to the Democratic National Convention: "But when all is said and done - when you pick up that ballot to vote - you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation. Over the next few years, big decisions will be made in Washington, on jobs and the economy; taxes and deficits; energy and education; war and peace - decisions that will have a huge impact on our lives and our children's lives for decades to come.

Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson talked about several other issues at Monday's news conference: • He said he did not plan to honor Franklin's coach-in-waiting contract. "I wanted to have a national search," he said. "James would have have been a candidate. I told him I would not automatically give him the job. " While Anderson hedged on the "business decision" comment by explaining that the primary business of the department was developing student athletes, finances -- or lack thereof -- clearly played a heavy role in the decision.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. : It's a consequential race obviously, because when you elect an executive, executives count. Executives impact lives. They impact business cycles, they impact the ability to create jobs in a particular state. They impact taxpayers. They impact our vision and our future….Governor O'Malley has a particular view with regard to progress in our state. I have a far different view. Obviously job creation being the number one issue in this campaign. And the fact of it is, a lot of these commercials that you're seeing attempt to litigate the past, they attempt to litigate things about me. Martin O'Malley : I want to begin by thanking the people of our state, and I want to thank the people of our state for giving me the honor of serving you in these very challenging difficult times for every family and every business in our state.

When it comes to King Kong, why not leave well-enough alone? At first blush, it would seem difficult to improve upon this extraordinary American film, the story of a giant gorilla and his unrequited love for a beautiful blonde. Images from the film have become mainstays of popular culture: Kong roaring at an attacking tyrannosaurus, Kong astride the New York skyline with a terrified Fay Wray dangling from his oversized paw, Kong plummeting to his death from atop the Empire State Building.

The following is an excerpt from "Combat Correspondents: The Baltimore Sun in World War II." American troops came under fierce German bombardment on the Ardennes Front as the Battle of the Bulge began at 5 o'clock in the dark morning of December 16, 1944. It was midnight then in Baltimore, plenty of time for a news flash in the morning papers. But the Baltimore Sun night news desk had no way of knowing about the surprise attack by thousands of German troops and tanks, wiping out lightly manned U.S. positions.

It was typical Brooks. He might be the greatest third baseman who ever lived - and certainly one of Baltimore's most beloved figures - but he just about had to be dragged to Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Monday night for "An Evening with Brooks" - a night of testimonials for the benefit of the Legends Sports Museum and the American Cancer Society. "They had to twist my arm for about a month," he said. Everybody knows the story by now. It took some special arm-twisting by Sandy Unitas to get Brooks to show up. It didn't take much persuasion at all for anybody else, and just about everyone who is anyone in Baltimore sports was on hand to honor "Mr. Oriole."
