People pray for world peace across churches in Valley

We prayed for world peace and especially for the peace in Kashmir. We wish peace to every brother and sister. God loves everyone and that love is shown by humans too by celebrating together, greeting each other and giving gifts. We should learn to forgive people,”

You should see both sides of picture, shouldn't you?
Totally agree. To get the best perception as prescribed by allah one should be able to set aside both prejudice and bias, be able to step back and see both inside the box as well as outside the box.
Same applies to you yes?

Ans.
I am not a lawyer, to comment on what definition of racism is given by UN.
But what I know when they tried to define “Zionism” as one type of “Racism”, both USA and Isreal walked out from the conference hall!!
It was so unusual to see “USA and Isreal” acting like “One Mind, Two bodies” on such occasions.
As if some “Unseen Bond” has declared them “Parent and Illegitimate Child”
Actually it is not the definition that matters, but what is behind that definition that matters.
Western People take care of most difficult part in the Definition itself.
As one example, they call “Women Exploitation” as “Women Freedom”!!
Perhaps exploitation = freedom to some...how do you define muslim unequal treatment of their women? Why are the islamic laws applied to muslim women not the same set of laws applied to muslim men? Doesn't this equal the definition of racism as provided by the UN?

Global Peace and Security
President Obama and Mankind at Crossroads
By Mahboob A. Khawaja, PhD.
...And maybe they’ll understand that not one U.S. leader has ever – ever – called our bombings and invasions a terrorist act………May be they’ll understand us when we shake our heads and say,“Well, this is just how politics work here. Sure it’s corrupt but, hell, what can we do...
Back at you comrade...news you not hear on IRNA or Al jazeera...

As 2013 approaches in the West, the Iranian people are just more than a month into the Islamic year 1434. It's not shaping up to be a very happy one, at least if the Iranian economy is any measure.
For millions of Iranians suffering the pinch of harsh international sanctions -- imposed as punishment for their government's nuclear work -- the economy is the measure.

Iran's currency, the rial, has lost half its value against the U.S. dollar during the past year. That means imported electrical goods, everything from computers to vacuum cleaners, are now unimaginable luxuries for most middle class families. Even some foods, like chicken, which was once a staple, are now an expensive treat.

There have been sad and damaging social consequences, too.

"The number of muggers, street beggars, prostitutes and con-artists are all increasing, along with a brain-drain," an old friend writes me from Tehran. "The impoverishment of city dwellers is soaring."

Just curious MUQ, what year are you celebrating, 1434 or 2012? Do you dispute that it takes slightly over 365 days for our earth to make a full orbit around the sun or have you bought into the non-muslim belief?

Can't wait to see you paranoid gun nuts cry when the take away your large clips and semi automatics ("military grade weapons" that belong in the hands of the military and nowhere else). The second amendment is under no threat. But yes, it appears that the age of unrestricted weaponry on the streets of America is coming to an end. It is obvious from the current buying spree in guns and ammunition that many of our nations gun nuts are anticipating a change in gun laws....
It is time for responsible gun owners and hunters speak out against the current NRA position and in favor of more restrictive gun laws... We need to do more to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally unstable.
As for myself and millions of other gun owning Americans, our way of life will go on unchanged. We will continue to enjoy hunting with our traditional rifles and shotguns. And we shall have these and a handgun available to us in the extremely remote likelihood of needing them to protect ourselves or our families, or neighbors, from some crazed individual who never should have been allowed to own a gun in the first place.
Seems this article is focused on crazed nuts who are allowed to legally own guns...the real question is by banning large clip weaponry, will this do a dammmmmm thing to keep them out of the hands of those who can't legally own guns anyway? A resounding no...
New York City expects to record its lowest number of homicides since record-keeping began in 1963, reports AP. The city has had 414 this year, down nearly 20% from last year and well under the previous low of 471 in 2009. The city also has seen 1,353 shootings, again well below the previous low of 1,420 in 2009. Mayor Bloomberg and police credit the controversial "stop and frisk" policy in part for the numbers.

• Chicago has hit the unfortunate milestone of 500 homicides this year, reports the Tribune. It's a "tragic number that is reflective of the gang violence and proliferation of illegal guns that have plagued some of our neighborhoods," says the police superintendent. It's also the first time in four years the city has hit the 500-mark, though the Trib points out that Chicago had nearly twice that number in 1992. The city had 435 homicides last year, notes AP.

You have provided your side of the argument based on more people in jail yet more people killed by guns. Many stats contradict what you say other than those areas that have HIGH gang activity. Question: if you subtract gang related killings from the stats what will this reveal? That gun related killings have exponentially gone DOWN. While it is unfortunate what happened in Newtown, the bottom line is no matter what laws you impose on those that ALL READY abide by the laws, those that don't abide will not be impacted by any new laws...do you see gangs complying with your new laws francis?

Fear not francis...the issue is in good hands now...the school should have known the risk of Adam...
The family of a 6-year-old girl who survived the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary aims to sue the state for $100 million, reports the Hartford Courant. The girl, identified only as Jill Doe, has been traumatized, says her lawyer. "She was in her classroom, and over the loudspeaker came the horrific confrontation between the fellow who shot everybody and other people," says attorney Irving Pinsky. "Her friends were killed. That's pretty traumatic."

It is the first legal action to stem from the shooting, notes Reuters. Because the state has "sovereign immunity" from most lawsuits, Pinsky must get permission to sue from the state claims commissioner, and he filed the papers on Thursday. The state's education department failed to protect kids from "foreseeable harm," according to the claim. "Usually a fellow like Adam Lanza would have been known as a potential problem to the police," says Pinsky.

The number of gun fatalities has declined in the past years but the number of people killed by firearms in the United States remains way high. To claim that gun ownership is declining is complete bunk look at the numbers! According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, between 2006 and 2010 47,856 people were murdered in the U.S. by firearms, more than twice as many as were killed by all other means combined.

There are more than 130,000 federally licensed firearms dealers in the United States. Compare that with a 144,000 gas stations nation wide or 37,000 grocery stores – are you getting the picture here? The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world – there are 89 guns for every 100 Americans, compared to 4 in UK and Canada. The murder figures are astounding; the Brits show around 550 murders per year. In 2011 there were 12,664 murders in the US, 8,583 were caused by firearms.

The ATF reports, last year there were 5,459,240 new firearms manufactured in the United States, nearly all (95 percent) for the U.S. market. An additional 3,252,404 firearms were imported to the United States. If you don’t have a criminal record and you have not been adjudicated as mentally incompetent, you can buy guns. In 2010 the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) ran 16,454,951 background checks for firearms purchases, only 0.48 percent) were denied.

Global Peace and Security

President Obama and Mankind at Crossroads

By Mahboob A. Khawaja, PhD.

"I face the world as it is," President Obama explained at the Oslo Nobel Peace Award ceremony (December 10, 2009), but refusing to renounce the war for his nation or under his leadership, saying that he is obliged to protect and defend the United States. But Obama misled the informed and conscientious global intellect as no nation is threatening the American people or their security.“No matter how justified, war promises human tragedy”, he said. Norman Soloman ( Commondreams.Org )“Mr President War is not Peace”, Dec 10, 2009), questions the intent and eloquence of Obama’s speech and strikes a warning note:
“War is not peace. It never has been. It never will be…….in the name of pragmatism, Obama spoke of “the world as it is” and threw a cloak of justification over the grisly escalation in Afghanistan by insisting that “war is sometimes necessary”-- but generalities do nothing to mitigate the horrors of war being endured by others.”

America’s political elite so often remembers Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to fill the moral and intellectual blanks but neglects his advice:“The chain reaction of evil... wars producing more wars... must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.” In a war propelled economy of the few, and given the US history of wars for more than 220 battlefield engagements in its two centuries of evolutionary history and the perpetuated insanity of the warlords to make more wars, Mike Prysner (“Amazing speech by an Iraq war veteran”: 12/25/2009), an Iraqi War veteran has these daring observations to share with the informed and concerned humanity:

“Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us.”

To reconstruct a different and more sustainable future for the besieged humanity, it is incumbent upon the intellectuals, academics, visionaries, poets, philosophers and the thinking people of the Universe to perceive and articulate new and creative ideas, new political imagination for the 21st century organizations to be functional for the people, by the people and accountable to the supremacy of the people’s will.

Time and encompassing opportunities warrant New Thinking, New Leaders and New Visions for change and the future-making. But change and creativity and new visions will not emerge out of the obsolete, redundant and failed authoritarianism of the few insane leaders. A reflection on the on-going wars and resulting destructions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Arab Peninsula, Israel and Palestine clearly demonstrate leadership madness, insanity and aggression to the principles and norms of the UNO charter and human rights values guaranteed for peace, security and co-existence.

The consequences of Man’s cruelty to Man confirm how closely the Western leaders collaborate with the oil-pumping Arab dictatorial regimes and others so called democracies to betray the interest of the global community.
