Politically, Hamas May Have Won

Adam Morrow and Khaled Moussa al-Omrani with help from General Joe, 04.02.2009 19:45

""The Dayton affair is largely ignored – but then facts concerning Palestine are always subject to deceptions and disinformation in the Western media," Fahmi said. "The western press also rarely mentions that Hamas won democratic elections in 2006, or the extent of corruption in the PA."

Along with Israel's failure to achieve its stated war aims, commentators note that the war on Gaza – horrific images of which have been transmitted around the world – represented a public relations catastrophe for Israel.

"The war revealed Israeli criminality to the entire world," said Fahmi. "It also served to put the Palestinian cause back on the conscience of the international community."

"Israel's image is now at an all-time low," said Mazloum, pointing to the massive demonstrations worldwide in solidarity with Gaza. "Israel is already suffering from the effects of this crisis, politically, economically, and socially."

Mazloum attributed Israel's uncharacteristic unilateral cease-fire declaration to mounting worldwide outrage over its assault on Gaza's largely defenseless civilian population."

Fitting Recession Solutions

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Director, Public Action, 04.02.2009 05:34

Now the governments are in do or die situation. It should follow Keynesian model at the moment and take Hayekian course in the long run. An adequate mix of both is necessary to keep the economy on track. A mere spending on the public programmes is not sufficient. There should be satisfactory outcomes. As the global development depends on the correct prescriptions of the economists and other important knowledge holders, they should constantly strive to advise the governments with suitable policies. Just marshalling out few archaic theories and outdated data is not enough. The world needs visionary thinkers to steer the governments to a right course.

No Nursery Vacancy in Delhi

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Director, Public Action, 04.02.2009 03:33

Nearly 1.75 lakh children couldn’t get admission into nursery schools this year. It is due to the over population and shortage of schools. The mismatch between population and the availability of infrastructure creates a massive problem. Taking advantage of this gap, government officials, politicians and private players milk enormous money from the admission-seeking parents. Although Delhi is well established in the quality and quantity of education the future looks dim due to the heavy shortfall in the availability of seats. From nursery schools to universities there is a heavy shortage. Apart from the 14 million Delhi population there is a massive migration of students from Northern and Northern eastern states. This is bound to increase multifold with the better transport facilities available now. It can be controlled only by providing good social facilities like education and other infrastructure in the big migration states.

According to S.K. Bhattacharaya, chairman of School Action Committee: “government recognized private schools received over four lakh applications this year and approximately 1.75 lakh children were left out. The demand is far more than supply and thus those left out generally opt for playschools.”

Parents blame autonomous points system for the mess up in the nursery school admissions. Few brand names like DPS, Apeejay, Vasant Valley, Amity there is a big push and pull for the nursery school seats. Priyanshi Kapoor of New Friends Colony shuttled between her home and 15 different schools in south Delhi for her child’s admission She says “The admission procedure in schools is hardly transparent. My daughter couldn’t get through in the school where my husband and I scored alumni points. The entire nursery admission procedure has been a nightmare for us”

Schools give their own reasons for rejecting certain children. One of the hidden agenda of the school management during admission process is nepotism and highhanded corruption. Those in the high level of the school management are much sought after people in the capital. They use their clout to make substantial money in this time period. Transparency International should look into the amount of money changing hands in this huge corruption area.

One of the west Delhi principal says, “We look for a particular set of parents. For instance, children of businessmen don’t get enough points. In the admission process as many schools often prefer parents from the service class. It is seen that businessmen do not value education much ad it affects our results,”. This may sound reasonable but bribery can take the genuine sheen out of Delhi school admissions.

How many students can be accommodated in 1,976 private schools? The meager number of private schools create stampede. Even poor families want to send their children to private schools as they think that the government schools are not good for the children’s overall development. Those who cannot afford three square meals only opt for government schools.

The Delhi government has been constantly striving to develop the education in the capital. An extreme level of politics played by the public representatives and bureaucrats has been destroying the education. Now the challenge is to increase the number of schools in partnership with private and civil society organizations. Reducing the migration is another Himalayan challenge. All the neighborhood areas should have schools and the children must be encouraged to attend only their neighborhood schools. The biggest challenge for the government is to divert the public craze from private schools to sarkari ones. Before doing that it must give high quality education and better facilities. This is the most urgent work for Delhi government for now and in the future.

Kissing is Crime

D.A.Prabaharan, Director, Public Action, 03.02.2009 15:32

In such vague definition of legal terms it is natural for the corrupt policemen to randomly pick up people in the pretext of combating crime. Although this act of the couple does not fall under the criminal activity in strong terms, for money police can harass common public to any extent. The popular solution to such problem is abolishing law. One should not swing to extreme levels while handling funny situation such as arresting kissing couple. Laws are needed to rein in erroneous citizens but not be applied blindly.

Israels Regierung bombardiert Gaza .... ( IMMER-NOCH ! )

Pedro Escovar, 02.02.2009 16:55

Barak CHILD-MURDER Hamas akzeptiert Ägyptens Friedensplan, Fatah bekennt sich zu Beschuss Israels, Regierung bombardiert Gaza .... Die Reihenfolge spricht für sich. Zuerst wurde am Sonntag gemeldet, dass die Hamas den ägyptischen Waffenstillstandsplan akzeptiere. Daraufhin erklärte ein verzweifelter Ehud Olmert, man werde als Antwort sofort den Gazastreifen angreifen müssen (wenn vorher vielleicht bitte mal eine Rakete dahergeflogen käme, aber schnell, schnell). Dann schossen Milizen der Fatah von ex-Palästinenserpräsident Mahmud Abbas nach eigenen Angaben Raketen auf israelisches Territorium (angeblich aus dem Gazastreifen) und schon bombardierten Israels Streitkräfte wieder den Gazastreifen.

La enmienda otorga más derechos al pueblo / Si tiene la potestad de revocar mandatos por malos desempeños, también debe tenerla para reelegir por el buen gobierno

Ivan Oliver Rugeles, 02.02.2009 14:38

Es falso de toda falsedad la campaña de la oposición que intenta vender la matriz de que la enmienda que se votará el 15F lleva el propósito de eternizar en el poder a Chávez. La enmienda tiene como único objetivo permitir que quien ejerza un cargo de elección popular puede optar por presentar a los electores de nuevo su nombre para continuar ejerciéndolo y si resulta electo en el respectivo proceso electoral que establece la norma constitucional, ello le permitirá, sin interrupción alguna, seguir implementando los proyectos que no pudo culminar, así como comenzar los que ya estaban en su agenda inicial, así como aquellos otros de largo plazo que su propia gestión y la dinámica social le iba demandando, día tras día.

BNPP Bill 'sneaky,' out to create nuclear power program - Greenpeace plants tombstone at House of Representatives

Greenpeace Southeast Asia, 02.02.2009 10:37

Greenpeace activists keep watch in front of the Phil. House of Representatives Manila, PHILIPPINES — Greenpeace today exposed that the House Bill proposing to revive the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant is part of a sneaky and underhanded attempt to railroad the establishment of a national commercial nuclear power program in the Philippines. According to Greenpeace, the costs outlined in a Bill filed by Cong. Mark Cojuangco and signed by 130 representatives are not merely for the rehabilitation and commissioning of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant(BNPP), but include appropriations that effectively lay the foundation for a complete nuclear program.
