Colonialism: part two

January 31, 2013


The war in Mali deepens and innocent people keep dying. The aim of France is not the one to fight against Islamist groups, but to reconquer Mali;  many countries ( US in forefront followed by UK and Germany) back the French president Hollande’s initiative to start a war in the south African region. Why? First of […]

Elections in Israel: Zionism might win

January 22, 2013


Netanyahu is likely to win the next elections in Israel and the more this victory seems achievable, the more I fear for Israelis and Palestinians.
