Ugandan Journalist Seeks Peace; Finds Conflict Instead

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…

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.

Osama bin Laden: The Aftermath (May 2, 2011)

Dear Friends,


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…

April 2011 Update: ICRD Breakthrough with Muslim Brotherhood

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.


Key Outcomes:

  • A statement by Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leaders that they had finally found…

Osama bin Lynched

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.…

What Is Peace?

Peace has always been among humanity's highest values--for some, supreme. Consider: "Peace at any price."1 "The most disadvantageous peace is better than the most just war."2 "Peace is more important than all justice."3 "I prefer the most unjust peace to the justest war that was ever waged."4 "There never was a good war or a bad peace."5

Yet, we agree little on what is peace. Perhaps the most popular (Western) view is as an absence of dissension, violence, or war, a meaning found in the… Continue

The Divine Image" Songs of Innocence

For Mercy has a human heart,
Pity a human face,
And Love, the human form divine,
