White far-right extremism – A sudden volcanic erruption in Norway

What happened in Norway still shook me to the core. Still not able understand WHY?



This is becoming a common tendency of delinquent youths (?) mostly in developed countries. I have been studying about Anders (Anders Behring Breivik) from last 3 days and following up on the issue.



Is this really an act to check multi-culturalism in Norway or to free Europe from immigrants by 2083 or to protect Christianity?



He posted his online 1,516-page manifesto titled, "2083… Continue

Israel: This sick glee in the face of a terrorist attack

Many Israelis find “educational” value in horrifying attacks, as long as they happen to others…

Following the terrorist attack in Norway, before the Israeli media had to reluctantly admit it was actually carried out by a Norwegian neo-Nazi, the media, aside from Haaretz, kept its readers in the dark about the killers’ pro-Israeli agenda, the comment section on the internet sites was filled not with expressions of horror and sadness, but with virulent attacks on Muslims…

Achievements and challenges for 2015 - A perspective of Nepal on MDGs

 By Yadab Bastola 

There are only 4 years to reach the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals. At the current date, there is great uncertainty as to whether the Nepal will be able to achieve the goals by the set date. The eight goals set by the UN and 189 participating states out the 192 that are currently joined in the UN, all seek an increase in development throughout the world. The global aim of these goals is to reach a point where the world can…

Reflections – Why Sport?

When I tell people I am researching sport and peacebuilding, it never fails that I get one of two responses – the confused look that usually signifies a predisposition to thinking of those two concepts as mutually exclusive or the sudden dawning of “oh that sounds cool!”

 

Throughout my summer research, the most important question I was asked, and asked frequently, was “why sports?”  Despite its simplicity, this is really the question at the core of our research, the question…

If Bush or Giuliani Had Been Stoltenberg

The murder spree in Norway was apparently the work of a Norwegian, not a group of foreigners, and for various other reasons the comparison is not exact.  Nonetheless, it's tempting to wonder how many people would still be alive today if George W. Bush or Rudy Giuliani had spoken after the 9-11 attacks as Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg just did. 

 

You'll recall that Bush immediately spoke of a "war against terrorism," claimed to have been attacked for being a beacon…

Teaching Teens

I found them one evening while walking on the streets of my town, throwing fruit at each other-- somewhat jovially, but also violently.



My words on non-violence hit home to them, and they realized someone actually cared. So they began coming over for English lessons, when I realized how much I could actually help them.



Their English is poor, despite attending English-medium Christian schools. While they can understand and communicate verbally, reading level and… Continue

Islamophobia: Right-wing fundamentalists of Europe

A few years ago, the respected Cambridge scholar T J Winter, also known by his Muslim name of Abdal Hakim Murad, gave a fascinating lecture to Humanities staff and students at the University of Leicester. The title was "Islam and the threat of the West", turning on its head the more usual - then and now - "Islam and the threat to the West".

It was a novel approach, which, in a nutshell, illustrated that, historically, aggression has been directed more from Europe to the…

Good governance: Panacea for world peace

:The only way to achieve peaceful co-existence most especially in developing nation is for the political gladiators to ensure good governance through the provision of developmental programmes such as employment opportunities to the teeming youths, infrastructural development and respect for rule of law.
