Lift Sanctions against SyriaThis appeal comes from my friend, Dr Chandra Muzaffar, the president of the International Movement for a Just World based in Kuala Lumper, Malaysia. The International Movement for a Just World (JUST) urges the American, British, Australian, Canadian, Swiss and some European Union and Arab League governments to lift the unjust, immoral sanctions against Syria in

Jon Stewart parodies Obama's war on 'Islamic State'
This is a powerful mixture of insight and humour from Jon Stewart, though the way he frames the parody does concern me. Stewart rails against Obama’s ‘Team America’ pitch in selling another Middle Eastern war with a view to questioning … Continue reading

The Concluding Declaration of the Mussalaha Delegation to Syria – Friday, May 10th 2013 Syria exhibits a massive and terrible breakdown of human decency and respect. There are millions of innocent victims and many individual acts of heroism, but amongst … Continue reading
Will US intervention mean the end of Syria as we know it?
From where I stand, the decision by Barack Obama to arm the Syrian rebels will most likely lead us into another World War. According to Franklin Lamb’s excellent analysis below, the US estimates another 50,000 people must be killed before … Continue reading
