Given continued distressing references to 'jihad' in newspaper, radio and tv headlines some of my friends, both Christian and Muslim, suggested I write a book about Jesus and 'jihad' and call it 'The Jihad of Jesus'. It was hoped the provocative title would get a lot of attention, and we could introduce Christians and Muslims to a Qur'anic reconstruction of the concept of 'jihad' in the light of the radical practical nonviolence of Jesus. I have not written this book as an expert.
Tony Cartalucci - Just a Lousy Journalist? His writing focuses on the International dimension; the foreign interference in Thailand. While there is no doubt that no nation is an island and foreign groups with their own agendas interfere in all nations for their own personal ends, Tony has been very selective in which foreign groups he writes on, what their intentions are and who they work with in Thailand.
I write now to expose some of the glaring omissions he has purposefully made and encourage you to ask; What groups does this foreigner in Thailand belong to and what is his agenda?
I have been aware of his work for a year now. It started with the tragic events in Bangkok. Protesters were gunned down, soldiers died too, and foreign journalists, nurses and emergency workers were killed too, even delivery boys going about their business were gunned down.
This is why they have chosen to be a Red Movement, it is not a left wing movement, it encompasses all of the common people of Thailand.
Over the period of a year he continued along the same vein and added further incontestable facts to his writing.
Thaksin was in the Council on Foreign Relations. He has also continued with his nationalist ideological writing, praising the currently unelected government and Thai nationalists, while condemning all that they condemn with a fierce and violent passion; Highlighting some realities in Thailand such as the lax approach to enforcing Intellectual Property rights to essential drugs, which can not honestly be attributed to any political faction, and attributing them to the nationalists.
Perhaps, we should start with some glaring omissions. He was also a member of the Carlyle Asia Advisory Board. He, however, remained on the board for three years more than Thaksin, who left in Anand only left when the board was disbanded in He supported the military coup which ousted Thaksin and was surprised that the international community condemned it.
He has sat with George W. Bush at the Global Leadership Foundation. The list goes on and on. And so, the first questions arises; Who is more intimately linked with Western interests? Why was Anand surprised by international condemnation of the coup? Surin Pitsuwan Surin Pitsuwan is another opponent of Thaksin and a coup supporter.
He became unelected Prime Minister of Thailand in Above are a just a few influential Thai people with links to the same organisations as Thaksin, and more. Again the questions arise; Who is more influenced by these foreign interests? In his first year in office, he inaugurated three heavy spending programmes that directly contradicted the IMF edicts: These policies did not bring on the inflationary crisis that the IMF and conservative local economists expected.
Paying off this debt will inevitably result in less public spending and higher taxes. New taxes are also being introduced such as the Land Tax which is currently going through parliament.
Asia Times noted before the coup that "Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was elected in on a strongly populist economic platform now widely referred to as Thaksinomics.
RSO Randall Bennet from the US Embassy at an on-line meeting wrote, "If anything, the Army has been extremely patient and while being attacked by Red-Shirts with lethal weapons, has responded with rubber bullets to minimize casualties. The Army has not been the aggressor in this case.
Campbell met Thai government officials and Red Movement leaders. By the afternoon the Thai government stated that it had a secretive new plan to disperse the Reds.
On the Monday morning Thai and US governments were distanced by a report published in Thai newspapers. On the Thursday evening The New York Times interviewed Seh Deang where he was shot by a sniper after which a barrage of bullets entered the protest site killing and wounding many unarmed protesters and culminating in the end of the two month protest calling for fresh elections to replace an unelected government.
Interesting that part of his email address was "M," which is a 40mm grenade launcher similar to MWhy are Jews hated by so many people? Why are so many people anti-Semitic? How and why did anti-Semitism start?
Is there a solution to anti-Semitism? We are now just past what I referred to as "the next decade" (in the original paper) wherein so much was/continues to be determined about how - and how soon - we begin this next age - or if we do - before the planet (otherwise) overhauls itself.
Nov 27, · bro you need to carefully write outlines. you have written that english should be the medium of instruction and at the same time you suggest that foreign research should be translated in local language, isnt it contradiction?? moreover you have also stated same things twice or more in ur outlines.
