Russian agencies, quoting the government's press service, said Putin treated Obama to black caviar with sour cream, smoked beluga with pancakes and tea made in the traditional Russian samovar, a big coal-fired kettle.

IUCN classifies the beluga as Endangered. It is a protected species listed in appendix III of the Bern Convention and its trade is restricted under CITES appendix II. The Mediterranean population is strongly protected under appendix II of the Bern Convention, prohibiting any intentional killing of these fish.

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has banned imports of Beluga Caviar and other beluga products from the Caspian Sea since October 6, 2005.

L'Aquila is not confined to G-8 session. From there, Obama is reported to have arranged a meeting with the Pope. Two men with repulsive backgrounds - Benedict an ex-Nazi and Obama - an ex-Muslim - will be discussing the creation of Palestine State. Palestine State will become another Iran, controlled by the Hamas and Hizballah terrorists. No sane person will advocate Palestins State. Israel is patronised by majorty of Americans and Europeans. Harry Truman not only battled outside skeptics but also went against his own Secretary of State, George Marshall, in rushing to recognize the state of Israel in 1948. So Israel is beloved to all Americans, a loyal ally in the Middle East.Will Benedict and Obama, with their replsive backgrounds, do harm to Israel?
