Iran Leader claims Israel 'A Wound To Be Cleansed'

By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 2, 2013

Iran's president-elect Hassan Rouhani has called Israel an old "wound" that must be removed. These statements would seem to cast doubt on the viability of efforts to revive peace talks betwen the Palestinians and Israel.

"The Zionist regime is a wound inflicted for years on the body of the Muslim world that must be cleansed," Mr Rouhani said to reporters.

His comments echoed those of outgoing president Mahmound Ahmadinejad who earlier whipped up anti-Israel sentiment at an Quds day rally in Tehran.

He said: "I will inform you with God as my witness, a devastating storm... (more)

The US government has paid at least £100m to the UK spy agency GCHQ, over the past three years, according to documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The payments were made to secure access to Britain's intelligence gathering programmes, according to the documents viewed by The Guardian newspaper.

The revelations have emerged after Snowden was granted a year's asylum in Russia following more than a month inside an airport terminal.

The fugitive left Moscow airport in a taxi, although... (more)

The blogger in question, Michele Catalano, that some of you may remember from her blog, “A Small Victory,” which she wrote during the mid-2000s, was ensnared in an investigation yesterday. Well more than that. Police showed up at her front door to interrogate her and her husband.

Here is Catalano’s account of the experience, in which she theorizes that this had something to do with her family’s "Googling" habits:

"What happened was this: At about 9:00 am, my husband, who happened to be home yesterday, was sitting in the... (more)

China Building Ghost Cities In Africa, why?

By Shaun Gibson, published on Jul 30, 2013

It was supposed to be a state-of-the-art city for 500,000 - but eerie footage shows how a Chinese-built urbanisation is at risk of becoming Africa's first 'ghost town'.

Constructed on the outskirts of Angola's capital city Luanda, Nova Cidade de Kilamba has 750 eight-storey blocks of flats, a dozen schools and more than 100 shop units.

But, crucially, it has no residents, and many of the nearby slum-dwellers cannot afford the £75,000 price-tag to move in.

This has sparked fears the £2.2billion project, a fraction of the cash China has poured into Africa in recent years,... (more)

Evils wins when Good people DO NOTHING

By Shaun Gibson, published on Jul 30, 2013

An observation about the world.

I see a world where bad is winning.

I see a world where the good people, people like you and I write about the wrongs and nobody really acts.

While the bad people have a field day and do what they want day in day out, where lies are told and money is made through having power

How long, as a species are we going to stand back and watch wars being fought over what? Oil and money? Wars are being fought for the wrong reasons and many will say it is awful, and it is, but it has always been this way. Through history however good... (more)
