Mandela is dead - Why hide the truth about Apartheid?

---By: Fidel Castro ---
Maybe the empire thought that we would not honor our word when, during days of uncertainty in the past century, we affirmed that even if the USSR were to disappear Cuba would continue struggling.

World War II broke out on September 1, 1939 when Nazi-fascist troops invaded Poland and struck like a lightning over the heroic people of the USSR, who contributed 27 million lives to preserve mankind from that brutal massacre that ended the lives of 50 million persons.

Nomination is Milestone

By Sherry Rehman
She didn’t win the Nobel Peace Prize. That’s totally ok. The award nomination is a milestone among many.
Malala Yousafzai, 16, is still proud and hopeful that she will move bigger mountains. So is mainstream Pakistan.

Without going into who got the coveted prize and why, we congratulate the OPCW for the important work they do, and set our gaze to the future.

The Goldilocks Moot

Sherry Rehman

BOTTOM LINE: My readout on this meeting is that it met its expected low bar. It didn't do more than break the diplomatic ice, which it was set to do. Nor did it evolve into an opportunity for some serious peace take-aways, which is the leadership need of the Asian century. So it stuck to the Goldilocks middle, no big chill, but no big thaw either.

The meeting reflected little change in the Indo-Pak cycle of circling back to Zero every so often.

Istanbul - a jewel in the Turkish crown

Bashy Quraishy

In recent years, I have been visiting Turkey and particularly its dazzling and most cosmopolitan city-Istanbul on various occasions. Not only as a curious admirer of its awe-inspiring history, great landscape, magnificent cuisine, gracious people and famous hospitality but also to take part in numerous conferences, seminars and meetings with its political leadership.


What moved me to write was the fact that very serious events will be happening very soon. In our times, our species hardly spend ten or fifteen years without facing a true risk of disappearing. Neither Obama nor anybody else could ensure otherwise. I say this from a realistic perspective, since only the truth could offer to us a little more wellbeing and a breath of hope. We have come of age when it comes to knowledge. We have no right to deceive others or ourselves.

The overwhelming majority of the public opinion knows enough about the new risk ahead.
