CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA—On the same day that I arrived in South Africa to teach and tour, my Ugandan “sister”, peace journalism trainer Gloria Laker, almost died.
When I read her tale below, I was flooded me with emotions—anger, fear, and relief among them. This is the story, in her own words (edited for length and style), of how she got caught up in rioting in Kampala and narrowly missed being seriously injured or even killed.
“It all started with an early…

PRINCESS KATE WILL UNCOVER DRUG TRADE BY ROYALTY
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
I shall refer to ‘royalty’ the whole gamut of nobilities and noble pretenders from England in the Atlantic through Netherlands, Monaco, Venice, and other European lands. The same circles of families & cronies in fact comprise the ‘who is who’ in the elite Committee of 300, as exposed by former British MI6 spy John Coleman.
A shocking truth…Continue

In the midst of the celebration and anguish surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden, it is a good time to reflect on the future and the illusive nature of peace.
For the better part of human history, war has been the norm. According to the University of Oslo and the Norwegian Academy of Sciences, there have been no fewer than 14,000 wars in the world since 3500 BC; which means the world has been relatively peaceful for less than 5 percent of the time…

Just as the peaceful uprising in Egypt was beginning, ICRD and the Strauss Institute (Pepperdine U.) jointly conducted a faith-based reconciliation seminar with the Muslim Brotherhood in Amman, Jordan, including ten of the Brotherhood's Jordanian leaders and ten American evangelicals from various disciplines. The timing could not have been more opportune.

I'm going to give this speech tonight to a crowd of drunk young people. If I'm not back by morning, ask around if there have been any "Islamic burials."
About 10 years ago a bunch of psychotic killers crashed planes into buildings. A tall skinny guy who took credit said he was protesting the presence of US troops in Saudi Arabia and US support for Israel's war on Palestinians. That wasn't exactly going to hold up in a court of law as a justification for mass-murder. But the U.S.…Continue

I write these words on April 2nd 2011, after watching news of the death of Osama Bin Laden on the morning news shows. In those reports I saw images of jubilant crowds outside the Whitehouse and in the streets of New York. After almost 10 years of violence, the application of U.S. military force, and the…Continue

As the folk world regales over the marriage of Prince Williams of House of Windsor to his fiancée Catherine ‘Kate’ Middleton, grand loots take place in the financial derivatives markets across borders. The same lootings, which caused the Asian financial meltdown and recessions in the USA and Europe, are being masterminded by greedy oligarchs who are directly linked to Queen Elizabeth, world’s wealthiest…Continue

COMMENTARY/OPINION: Is Osama Bin Laden’s death the quintessence of justice and victory of our fight against terror, or the route to more violence and terrorist attacks to come…?
Is justice served by the death of Osama Bin Laden? Is the death of Osama Bin Laden a victory in the fight against terror and terrorism? Is Osama Bin Laden really dead or this is just another political ploy and maneuvering, a smokescreen by the Obama administration to boast its bid for the next…Continue

There is need for rigorous preaching of religious tolerance going by the aftermath of the Post Election riot and violence in Nigeria, and as part of our effort and work on religion and peace building, we must see to solvable or the curbing of heightened tensions and provocative acts that create communal and National divides over religion through provocative statements by individuals, organizations and suppose ‘’Enlightened’’.
Nigeria is a country blessed with multi-ethnic and diverse…Continue
