Is Washington Mulling Diplomacy on Iran?

"...it is Iran which has constantly indicated that it will participate in a dialogue with the US in an atmosphere of equality and mutual understanding and respect. However, Washington has not done anything to win the trust of the Islamic Republic. Instead, it has catered to the demands of Israel, intensified its sanctions and inflated its rhetoric....As long as Washington is surrounded and politically manipulated by serpentine Zionists, there is little hope they may engage in any meaningful dialogue with the Islamic Republic....Anyway, as the Persian saying goes, Iran cannot and should not go down into a well with the rotten rope of Washington."

The seminar on Assam in Delhi adds fuel to the fire

"State government and several reports have contended that illegal migration in Assam is not as rampant as propagated by a section of anti Muslim group. “Bringing Bangladeshi angle to Assames ethnic conflict is disservice to the nation”, writes V.K. Tripathi, professor of IIT Delhi. Similarly Prof. Ram Puniyani argues, ‘tendentious comments about Bangladeshi immigration fueled violence in Assam.’"

Four more years of the same :: Don't expect a second-term Obama to take on Israel ::

"The reality is that the White House is stuck with an Israeli government, with or without Netanyahu, that rejects an agreement with the Palestinians. As tensions flare again on the Israel-Gaza border – threatening an Israeli attack, just as occurred in the run-up to the last Israeli election – it looks disturbingly like four more years of the same."

Projection for 2016 U.S. Election: a Republican President

"Even changing demography and rise of Latinos in electorate would not save Democrats. American public would fail to accept the shift in ground reality: being uncompetitive in global market place and a failed tainted political system at home. Instead of in depth look at the soul of the problem: mounting debt, corruption of whole political institutions and houses being effectively dictated by plutocrat and oligarch 1%, they would switch the horse – a Republican President, with the hope that he/she would take 360 degree turn around and bring back USA’s days of past glory and economic prosperity again. But this would be a pipe dream, unless both US political and economic systems are not radically reformed."

Kashmir: Craving for peace

"The International community’s help can encourage India and Pakistan to transform the Kashmir issue from being a bone of contention to a bridge of understanding for lasting peace and prosperity of South Asia’s billion plus people. A peaceful solution of the dispute will help to bring stability in the South Asian region, including in Afghanistan and eliminate a potential threat of another major war. This would further help lay the foundation for a new era of coexistence between India and Pakistan."

We Palestinians have so much to learn

"Gaza should be a reminder to them all that nothing amounts to anything as long as the Israeli occupation is in place. We cannot let Israel sit back and mock us while we bicker away and build castles in the air with our own illusions of grandeur. Matar Abu Ata’s mother, his father and that precious little boy who will no doubt grow up in his brother’s shadow are not interested in who sits on the higher horse or how many times both sides try to knock the other one down. All Matar’s mother is thinking and praying for now is that Mater Jr. will never ever meet the fate of his big brother."

Malala but not Afia

"Afia Siddiqui’s defense lawyers argued that their client had shot at the US officials in a panic and said the crime lacked any connection to terrorism. During the hearing, it was heard by the trial jury that Afia Siddiqui, the day after her arrest grabbed an M-4 rifle in her interrogation room and started shooting ‘death to America’."

Veterans' Day Mourning

"When I think about heroes, I always think about my friend, Elliott Adams. During the 60s, Adams volunteered for the Army. He fought in Vietnam. He was a paratrooper. He was wounded. After hospitalization, he was redeployed to Korea, and then Alaska. All of those things might make Adams seem like a hero to most people, but that is not why I think of him as a hero. Adams is a former president of Veterans for Peace, but that also is not why he is a hero to me. More than anyone I have known, Adams has dedicated his life since being discharged from the military to working for global peace. He has gone to Gaza with Physicians for Social Responsibility."
