Charity and uncharity

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 27.03.2011 12:05

Charity is flowing in the Indian blood for ages. It is being part of the life, philosophy, and culture, of the Indian society. There is no separation of charity from the everyday living of Indians. Before eating, rest of the world thanks the God for giving food but Indians offer food to crows. Many more examples can be given for the top most charitable order of the Indian society.

Absolutes, religions, sciences, and domination of the many by the few

m concoyle, 27.03.2011 02:44

The point of today’s social structure, in the US, is “domination,” and it is framed and justified in terms of absolutes, which are subsequently supported by (as well as being maintained by) “absolute” authoritative institutions such as science and law (the law of the national security state), where domination of the many by the few is justified by unquestionable absolute viewpoints.
One can either embrace or oppose authoritative absolute proclamations, but the dominant structure is supported by a social structure which is based on absolute truths (the social structures of):

Libyen: NATO-Sieg in 90 Tagen!?

Villagers tortured and woman sexually abused by police

William Gomes, 26.03.2011 04:03

Police carried out atrocities in revenge of the humiliation of a police officer of Biral Thana in Dinajpur district. The victims included men, women, children and the elderly. They suffered severe injuries and the women victims were sexually molested and abused. The police perpetrators remain unpunished due to the culture of impunity and the absence of legislation to protect the people from torture. The police have filed at least one case against the villagers and are harassing them. To-date no proper investigation has been carried out.

Barack Obama: el encantador de audiencias

Bruno Lima Rocha y Rafael Cavalcanti, 25.03.2011 23:11

El huracán mediático Barack Obama pasó por el Brasil para marcar también una nueva política. Cambiados los tiempos, esta vez la línea del Departamento de Estado es pro-activa, buscando reconstruir una agenda bilateral entre los dos países. Ahora el foco de los Estados Unidos es la reaproximación de Occidente al Brasil; lo que implicaría el alejamiento paulatino de los brasileños de las tesis latino-americanistas.

ISM - Gaza Two days ago, on March 22nd 2011, the Israeli army attacked a populated area in the Al-Shejaija neighborhood, east of Gaza City. Four days after the murder of two children in Johr Al-Dik, the Israeli army once again killed civilians, amongst them two more children. The latest victims of Israel’s war crimes are Yasser A’ahid Al-Helo (15), Mohamed Jalal Al-Helo (10), Mohammed Shaber Harara (18) and Yasser Hamid Al-Helo (55). At approximately 3 pm, Israeli tanks, positioned along the border, hit Al-Nazzaz street, 2 km from the border with four consecutive artillery shells. The first one hit Samer Walid Mushtaha’s house, destroying the upper floor. His wife, who was preparing dinner, had just gone downstairs and missed the attack by chance. The second shell hit vacant land nearby belonging to the Al-Helo family. The third one hit a group of children and older boys who were playing football near their houses, as they do every single day. 10 year old Mohamed Jalal Al-Helo and 19 year old Mohamed Saber Harara were immediately killed and their bodies brutally dismembered. Ten more children and an adult were also injured by shrapnel.

What a horrific cruelty case can teach us

Libyen: Schlächter unter uns

Libyen - Schlächter unter uns Libyen: Die Schlächter sind unter uns. Stoppen wir sie! ...... Zum Krieg gegen Libyen dokumentieren wir den Appell des Bundesverbands Arbeiterfotografie vom 21.3.2011 als Diskussionsbeitrag: Die Schlächter sind unter uns. Einige von ihnen sind gewählt. Sie heißen Obama, Sarkozy usw. Sie sind die Despoten, die sich an das große Kapital verkauft haben und in dessen Interesse agieren und die Weltöffentlichkeit manipulieren. Das große Kapital ist der eigentliche Diktator, der seine Handlanger operieren läßt. Sie sind es, gegen die ein Aufstand erforderlich ist. Diejenigen, die uns einreden wollen, es ginge in Libyen um den Schutz von Zivilisten - wie das z.B. der mit dem "Friedensnobelpreis" versehene US-Präsident Obama am 19. März 2011 in aller Öffentlichkeit tut [1] - sind die eigentlichen Despoten und Demagogen.

Juan Ahumada Farietta, 23.03.2011 19:07

En el caso de Libia, como muy bien explica y demuestra Ignacio Ramonet, director de Le Monde Diplomatique, en su libro La tiranía de la comunicación, se debe partir de que los medios de comunicación masivos, no son de confiar a la hora de informarse, interpretar y extraer conclusiones. Los mass media son monopolios con sede en las metrópolis, manipulan la información acorde con los intereses económicos y políticos del capital financiero y las potencias del capital, y, por sobretodo, mienten.

BRD: Luftangriffe in Libyen nicht verantwortbar

Andreas Koppmann, 23.03.2011 15:06

Krieg gegen Libyen Käßmann: Luftangriffe in Libyen nicht verantwortbar ......... Luftangriffe gegen Bodentruppen und Bunker des libyschen Diktators Muammar al-Gaddafi sind nach Ansicht ehemaligen Bischöfin Margot Käßmann theologisch nicht verantwortbar. Käßmann (52) verwies am Montag in der ARD-Talksendung «Beckmann» auf eine frühere Denkschrift der Evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland, nach der zum Schutz der Zivilbevölkerung militärische Gewalt für einen begrenzten Zeitraum und mit einem begrenzten Ziel legitim sein könne. Die Einrichtung einer Flugverbotszone in Libyen habe sie für solch ein begrenztes Ziel gehalten, sagte Käßmann. «Wenn ich jetzt aber sehe, dass die Resolution 1973 schon wieder sagt: Bodentruppen können bombardiert werden, Gaddafis Hauptquartier wird bombardiert, dann ist das für mich schon wieder eine militärische Ausweitung, die diese engen ethischen Grenzziehungen, die ich theologisch gerade noch verantworten könnte - ich habe ein Unbehagen mit allem Militärischen, das muss ich sagen - schon wieder überschreitet.»
