It seems now 'The Donald' is back. His message to the American voter is focused as ever. For about three weeks the presumptive GOP nominee appeared to be on hiatus. A lull sometimes happens after victory. Even Trump himself was surprised after he swept the Republican nomination in record time. Along the way he vanquished 17 opponents; made it look...
Hundreds of activists from Spain and from around the world gathered together in the main square in Pamplona on July 5 to protest against the Running of the Bulls, the San Fermin festival involving one week of barbarity in which fifty-four bulls are tortured to death in front of a braying, cheering public.
"I have a dream", a nice sound-bite attributed to Martin Luther King, in his case a very valid dream and one which became reality, turning a nightmare of prejudice and inequality for so many people into a multi-cultural and inclusive society. And suppose we had a collective dream called an ethical foreign policy?
The contemporary Arab world is fraught with formidable forces of diverse enemies - the self, the authoritarian rulers and foreign interventionists - the ex-colonial masters. Common sense stops at various levels to reflect on the real problems
Richard Black is not the only Western politician to have entered in Syria but, unlike the others, he really entered legally. I.e. he requested permission to the Syrian government, and once he gainedit , he entered into Syria. This is the difference. On his journey to Syria in April of 2016 the senator of Virginia Richard Black met politicians...
Once again, European bigotry exposed! Oh that poor old United Kingdom! Armies of political commentators based on all continents are now feverishly trying to define to what extent the Brits got fooled, or how severely they will soon get punished for their 'bold move'.
"You mean we're voting to see whether we join the Common Market, like?" Yes, someone actually said that in the Brexit vote, which has seen the country slide into Bedlam in recent days, the two major political parties imploding, many demanding a second referendum and a post-Brexit Break-up of Britain on the cards.
Putin has shown on many occasions that he has respect and fondness for Islam. He is always on the side of God and respects people's freedom from different faiths or ethnicities. Russia is a good example of embracing the co-existence of Christians and Muslims and Putin is striving to keep this beauty as the co-existence faded away in the Middle East
Russian President Putin prolonged the food embargo on Western countries until the end of 2017. This must have certainly seemed like a life preserver in Brussels. By taking this preemptive step, ahead of the EU formally legalizing continued sanctions over the Ukraine situation, the Russian president offered the greatest assist to Europeans possible
Sundays are special in Great Britain. The evening meal or dinner is a fine tradition. Anyone who has ever sojourned there would know that. A trip to the High Street started the ball rolling. Choose any of the supermarkets. First stop: Sainsbury's bottle section. There you would experience a good selection of Europe's finest vintages.
Anthony Charles Lynton Blair currently back in Britain, cast a dark shadow over those campaigning to stay in the European Union in the 23rd June referendum. Inflicting himself on the Britain Stronger in Europe group, he spoke at every opportunity - reminding even the most passionate Europhile of the last time he assured: "I know I'm right" - Iraq.
There is a common myth in America that the people have the right to "freedom of speech" and "freedom of the press." Neither of these is true. The right to freedom of speech only protects people against adverse actions by the government: It does not insulate them from retaliation in the private economic sector
Before the #Brexit vote, Western mainstream media went bonkers. The corporate owned media outlets online did everything in their power to dissuade British voters from leaving a sinking EU. Today, as the pound and euro tumble, I examine the most flagrant warnings
