What to do instead of bombing Iran?

Here is a lecture I held at the World Peace Academy in Basel, Switzerland. I show here some pf my photos from my Iran trip, I outline why the present Western policies on Iran are counterproductive and, third, what must be done instead. It's only a hint - so much can be done to both prevent a looming war and to build trust.



I'd be happy to receive your comments and for your sharing it throughout your system.…

Gaza: A Fundamentalist's Guide to Gravity

Gaza: A fundamentalist’s guide to Gravity

By: Firouzeh Afsharnia

A few years ago I was traveling through Africa and found my self in a rickety cab. As I bounced up and down in the lumpy back seat, shifting spots to avoid the broken springs and whatever was festering in the exposed paddings, another passenger got in and sat in the front seat.  He was in a jovial mood and had just passed some sort of certification exam.  “I passed! I passed!” He declared.

First…

The Escalating Conflict Between Israelis and Palestinians

The Conflict Resolution Workout!

by Ruth Sirman, CanMediate International



16 November 2012



I have watched with concern and despair the way things are escalating between Israelis and Palestinians over the past few days, weeks and even months. And I am worried about where you are choosing to go - both individually and collectively.



There is an old African proverb that says “When 2…

Greece and Our Current Awakening: We Are Our Brothers’ Keepers

Tonight I lost the last bit of sympathy for President Obama

This is President Obama's most nasty, bellicose, one-sided and perversely power-arrogant speech ever. The Nobel Committee ought to revoke its Prize to him, but of course it won't.

This cynical man speaks about the goodness of even more "crippling" sanctions on a country of 75 million people of which 25 % are children under 14.

At every single aspect he touches upon, he takes the wrong path: towards making war irreversible. There is no excuse that it was for AIPAC. In contrast to…
