A Week After Bronx Fire, Community Holds Funeral for Loved Ones

“The Nazi Ghettos” Exhibition in Rome for Holocaust Memorial Day

Established ten years ago, Memorial Day is celebrated on January 27 because on this day the Allied Forces liberated Auschwitz from the Germans. Beyond that gate, as well as the inscription “Arbeit macht frei” (Work makes you free), appeared hell.

Holocaust – A Crime Against Humanity

This article talks about one of the most frightful events history has ever encountered – the Holocaust, which occurred during World War II (1939-1945) and saw the mass extermination of 6 million innocent lives. Jews, Poles, Slavs, Gypsies, Africans and many other Non-Aryans were called for and systematically subject to forced labor and ultimately, death.

New World Responsibility in the US Presidential Election in the Year of the Dragon

The two favorites representing the two parties, namely, Ron Paul and Obama are held in high esteem by their respective supporters for the forthcoming US presidential election. On personality basis, both the individuals would be amazing, though leadership characteristics and particularly for America in its present critical situation with threats from across the globe would require extra-ordinariness to lead the nation and to sensitively balance the global status. The dream is for restoration of the American faith in the system that forces the common man to bear the brunt of poverty at the pleasure…

What’s the Best Way to Deal With Iran Right Now?

Obviously, economic and financial sanctions are not having a very immediate effect on Iran’s decision to give up its nuclear weapons manufacturing process. Does this surprise anyone, “not I,” said me at a recent think tank discussion. Whereas, many academic intellectuals believe this is the proper way forward, I say that’s just pure “rubbish, it’s poppycock” if you ask me.

Arab Spring – But Was It Really Worth It?

Okay so, I guess it goes without saying that think tanks talk about global politics, world events, international relations, and world-trade. Thus, no one should be surprised when I say that we have a few thoughts on the Arab Spring events of 2011, well, one could actually call them the Arab Perennial events of circa 2011 to 2014 or who knows how long all this mass protesting civil unrest might go on. Let’s discuss this for a moment shall we?

Actions Speak Larger Than Words in the Middle East

Personally, and I’m just speaking for myself, I don’t believe anyone on this planet actually believes that Iran having a nuclear weapon is a good thing. I realize that at the United Nations, that Russia and China are reluctant to vote on any sort of global action on either Iran or Syria. Indeed, I also understand that Russia and China are trading partners with Syria and Iran.

What Is the Red Cross?

Most people have heard of the Red Cross, whether it be on TV, the radio or on the street! But who exactly are they? What do they do?

Navigating Through North Korea and China With Simon Cockerell and Katharina Hesse

There’s more to North Korea than what headlines would indicate, at least for Simon Cockerell and Katharina Hesse, two Beijing-based expatriate professionals whose projects often center around the isolated country, and bring them into contact with North Korean nationals. Hesse and Cockerell’s experience with North Korea are in some ways a study of contrasts. Through his work with Koryo Tours, Cockerell’s understanding of North Korea is one deepened by sympathy for long-time friends with whom he has worked together for years. Hesse’s work with North Korean refugees meanwhile brings a more somber perspective to the food shortage problems that are facing the DPRK.

Iranian Dissidents Can’t Count on the UN

Last year, the crisis of the 3,300 Iranian dissidents who have made a home at Camp Ashraf in Iraq for decades exploded when Iraqi militants massacred 47 of them in two separate, brutal attacks. Those killings, the product of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s cozy relationship with the terrorist regime in Tehran, appear to have just been a warmup to Iraq’s latest plans for the dissidents. The dissidents, who are protected persons under international law and whom the U.S. has abandoned, in spite of its longstanding legal and moral commitment to protect them, have a short time to achieve refugee status through the United Nations. But so far Maliki has blocked the efforts of the UN and the UN is not pushing to remove Iraq’s obstructions. The Iranian dissidents in Ashraf and inside Iran are waiting to see the truth of these words as much as they are waiting to see the UN to respond to the Ashraf crisis with speed and conviction.

Pack Your Bags, Its Time To Abandon The Earth

The gold rush of the nineteen century witnessed a massive population shift. New towns sprang up around the mines while hundreds of other towns closed down. Towns closed down because their young men and women moved en mass to the minefields in search of gold.
