I was unable to access several sites on Thursday and Friday due to internet problems, so this week's roundup is missing several stories from these two days. Please feel free to add anything I missed in the comments below!
W. B. Yeats: On a Political Prisoner
She that but little patience knew,
From childhood on, had now so much
A grey gull lost its fear and flew
Down to her cell and there alit,
And there endured her fingers' touch

The European Union presents itself as an honest broker in the Middle East. In reality, the 27 governments are engaged in a long process of accommodating Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.
A recent agreement for 'more intense, more fruitful, more influential co-operation' between the EU and Israel means that Israel has become a member state of the Union in all but name. Rather than using this relationship to encourage Israeli restraint, the EU has legitimised actions such…Continue

The attempts by the U.S. to sidetrack international law, sideline the UN and block implementation of UN resolutions has a long history especially in regards to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The UN is the only international institution where countries, big and small, rich or poor, can come to register their concerns and raise their demands for equitable treatment in the world community.
The UN spying was galling, but much of the information in the WikiLeaks, was not surprising…Continue

The boat smashed into the rock, shattered into pieces, dozens of asylum seekers are dead along with bodies of children and women in the rough sea of Christmas island just two weeks before the Christmas event. Screaming of the rest, who are not dead yet, with pieces of floating debris echoing back and forth between heaven and earth for begging a last chance to have nice life in Australia. These asylum seekers had come from the hells (it seems by feeling desperation of these people) of Iraq…Continue

The 2010 Democracy Index, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has just been released.
It shows a decline in democracy over the last 2 years. The Index correlates well with the Global Peace Index but one of its sub-components, the well-functioning of government, correlates even strongly with peace.
The EIU states "Problems in the functioning of democracy in leading Western states diminish the scope for credible external democracy promotion. The…Continue
High levels of sexual violence during times of war and conflict are a common phenomenon all over the world.
Political rape continues to be used to intimidate political opponents and reach political goals.
Women have historically been perceived and treated as the possession of men and this perception continues in many areas today, particularly rural areas. When a woman is raped in one of these areas - especially if the act is committed in public - it is viewed as…Continue
