Unless the muscle of the US and its government can be turned around and Obama starts listening to his emissary George Mitchell and to a lesser degree Ms Clinton there will be no real change either in Gaza , the border crossings or any hope of Israeli compliance with International Justice and humanity.
Neither can any advancement towards a 2 state solution be even conceived until the Israelis agree to Jerusalem being the Capital City for both Israel and Palestine. read full story / add a comment

Privileged officers of the State getting generous pensions, having taken an oath to the State or to their profession have chosen to go on strike in a wave of rolling industrial actions which set out to subvert some of the most essential services in the State.
In other circumstances this would be deemed sedition .

On the 61st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. - (UDHR)
I quote Oscar wilde more than all the others; he more than anyone would have appreciated
this charter . It is just that it is not binding .it is not a law. It is aspirational ; but it is
inspirational . You don’t need to read it through. The language is turgid in places. Its meant to
endure . After 60 years the wording may seem esoteric .but if you re read it , ask yourself ;
how else could this be written to relate to all society.
I believe it is written for all the children of the womb of the Universe .
But , I will confess that I quote Oscar not only because he is one of the most quoted people in
the history of English language .

While we all agonise about whether our Industry , Agriculture , and all Human activity and endeavour may be responsible for Climate Change
there is a theory that cosmic radiation could be responsible for inordinate cloud cover - both Global warming and cooling may be explained by the formation of cloud cover due to solar wind particles which gather about them clouds.
Maybe its a cop out . But Maybe not read full story / add a comment

The Galway Alliance Against War is throwing a New Year’s Day Peace Party in the Rowing Club in Woodquay Galway on January 1st starting at 7pm and admission is FREE. The Guest of Honour will be Malalai Joya, a female member of the Afghan parliament, who has survived 4 assassination attempts – she is hated by both the Karzai regime that banned her from parliament and the Taliban. Human Rights Watch described her as “the bravest woman in Afghanistan”. GAAW has arranged for a telephone link-up with Ms Joya from her base in the mountains of Afghanistan – Galway’s local peace group believes it will be a truly unique experience for people in Galway to hear first hand why the war in Afghanistan is not the solution to the problems of that troubled country. read full story / add a comment
