Obama need to force a mutually accepted two-state solution for the Israelis and Palestinians

Obama need to force a mutually accepted two-state solution

for the Israelis and Palestinians 

 

What makes it so challenging for the new Obama team is that Mideast diplomacy has been transformed as a result of the regional disintegration since Oslo – in three key ways.

First, in the old days, Henry Kissinger could fly to three capitals, meet three kings, presidents or prime ministers and strike a deal that could hold.

No more. Today a peacemaker has to be both a nation-builder and a negotiator.

Majority Muslims should reject that kind of fanatic Islam

Majority Muslims should reject

that kind of fanatic Islam 

PESHAWAR, Jan 25 –  Every night around 8 o’clock, the terrified residents of Swat, a lush and picturesque valley a hundred miles from three of Pakistan’s most important cities, crowd around their radios. They know that failure to listen and learn might lead to a lashing – or a beheading.

Using a portable radio transmitter, a local Taliban leader, Shah Doran, on most nights outlines newly proscribed “un-Islamic” activities in Swat, like selling DVDs, watching cable television, singing and dancing, criticising the Taliban, shaving beards and allowing girls to attend school. He also reveals names of people the Taliban have recently killed for violating their decrees – and those they plan to kill.

HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS CHINESE NEW YEAR

HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS CHINESE NEW YEAR

TO ALL OUR CHINESE FRIENDS

 

People walk about under a tunnel of red lanterns decorations to usher in the eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year in Singapore yesterday. In largely cattle-free Singapore, the year of the ox is hoped to bring in some economic joy in a year filled with not so festive business news. A new year and new joy perhaps. — AP photo

Differential diagnosis and treatment plan of current financial melt down

Differential diagnosis and treatment plan of current financial melt down   

 

WASHINGTON, Jan 25 – At his confirmation hearings last week, Tim Geithner branded China a currency manipulator. This is a designation that the Bush Treasury Department never formally affixed to the Chinese.

It may signal a nerve-wracking shift in how the United States manages its most pivotal relationship.

Geithner is correct that China manipulates its currency. What’s more, this manipulation is arguably the most important cause of the financial crisis.

Starting around the middle of this decade, China’s cheap currency led it to run a massive trade surplus. The earnings from that surplus poured into the United States. The result was the mortgage bubble.

Thailand expels all Rohingya, thwarting access by UN + my comment

Thailand expels all Rohingya, thwarting access by UN 

MY COMMENT IN MALAYSIA INSIDER: Hypocrite Malaysia and Indonesia remain in denial state, regarding Rohingya refugee problem’s root cause of routine mistreatment by the Burmese authorities.

Hypocrite Malaysia and Indonesia remain in denial state, acting blind, deaf and dumb regarding Rohingya refugee problem’s root cause of routine mistreatment by the Burmese authorities. 

Thailand gets serious with Rohingya refugee problem’s root cause of routinely mistreated by the Burmese authorities and Thai Human Rights image around the world but Malaysia and Indonesia authorities remain in denial state. 

PETRONAS, Malaysia’s 4100.00-million (4.1 billion) investment project in Myanmar had shamelessly blinded them. They better shut up the shameless blame on USA and Israel, un-Islamic hypocrites! SPDC’s oil, its gas is more important than fellow Muslims blood and life. Even when Mosques are damaged, Korans are burnt, they all closed their eyes and even always defend the SPDC from the punishment of Christian countries.

Hypocrite Malaysia and Indonesia acting blind, deaf and dumb

on the Myanmar SPDC atrocities on Rohingyas

Hypocrite Malaysia and Indonesia authorities remain in denial state, acting blind, deaf and dumb regarding Rohingya refugee problem’s root cause of routine mistreated by the Burmese authorities. Thailand gets serious with Rohingya refugee problem’s root cause of routinely mistreated by the Burmese authorities and Thai Human Rights image around the world but Malaysia and Indonesia authorities remain in denial state.

PETRONAS, Malaysia’s 4100.00 million (4.1 billion) investment project in Myanmar had shamelessly blinded  them. They better shut up the shameless blame on USA and Israel, un-Islamic hypocrites! SPDC’s oil, its gas is more important than fellow Muslims blood and life. Even when Mosques are damaged, Korans are burnt, they all closed their eyes and even always defend the SPDC from the punishment of Christian countries.

I still remember the photo of present Islamic affair minister on the front page of the newspaper claiming that he just came back  from Yangon but nothing happened and peaceful just after the anti-Muslim riots.
