Reform or Revolution: Facing Into the Abyss - Part Two

hackersThe possibility of reformation of the economic system to a degree where citizens may enjoy a standard of living similar to the 'middle classes' in the 20th century may not exist (as implied in the previous article). This article will make the argument that even if reformation was possible, doing so is not desirable. But, that is debatable.

Remembering Civilian War Deaths

afghan village raidUnique Remembrance Day at 11.11.11 on 11.11.11

History ignored yields history repeated. That in part is why  at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of each year since the WW1 Armistice Day in 1918 people have held 1 minute’s silence to remember the war dead. However in subsequent wars civilian deaths vastly outnumbered military deaths as killing technology advanced. On Remembrance Day (Armistice Day) we should remember all who died in wars, both civilians and soldiers. 12 million Muslims, mostly civilians, have died so far in the post-1990 US War on Muslims.

The Palestinian Right of ReturnFrancis A. Boyle, The Palestinian Right of Return under International Law, Clarity Press, Atlanta, GA, 2011, 134 pp.

According to U. N. General Assembly Resolution 194 (III) of December 11, 1948, the Palestinian refugees have the right to return and receive financial compensation for lost property. “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property…“  The same body admitted in resolution 273 Israel as a member state to the U. N. on May 11, 1949 after Israel implements other U. N.  Resolutions including resolution 194 and 181. Up till now, Israel has fallen short of its pledge.

Davutoglu's brilliant statecraft

Ahmet DavutogluBy a happy quirk of personal destiny I happened to be in Istanbul a few days ago when the Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu gave a talk at the opening dinner session of the Istanbul Forum.

His theme was the Arab Spring as a defining historical moment of the post-Cold War era of world politics. I have made no secret of my admiration for the thought and creativity of Mr Davutoglu's diplomacy. In his short period as foreign minister he has already made an indelible impact on regional and world affairs. I believe these exceptional contributions to the statesmanship are built on his academic studies carried out prior to his entry into government service.
