Remembering Deir Yassin Massacre Which precipitated Palestinians Exodus
It was 9 April 1948 .Only weeks before the British Mandatory Authority ended in Palestine which was later turned into Israel. Jewish terror gangs Irgun, Hagana and Stern went on killing spree to drive out Palestinians and grab their lands.
Located in the outskirts of Jerusalem, Deir Yassin was a peaceful Palestinian village where Irgun, led by Menachem Begin who later became Prime Minister of Israel, massacred the entire population of 254 men, women, children and the aged between 9 and 11 April 1948.

WHERE DO YOU stand on the conflict in Syria? This question has become perhaps the ultimate political and sectarian Rorschach test of our time. Are you a leftist or libertarian who opposes U.S. air strikes and waxes lyrical about the paramountcy of Syrian sovereignty and international law? Or are you a very mainstream liberal or conservative who backs military action to remove the Syrian dictator from power — or, at least, to protect his people from barrel bombs and chemical attacks?

In the run-up to Turkey’s historical referendum this past Sunday on whether or not to accept, among other things, a change from a parliamentary to a presidential system, many of Turkey’s secularist and nationalist opposition were invoking modern Turkey’s founding father, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, as a rallying call.
According to these voices, Ataturk’s vision for a secular, democratic state is at risk of being destroyed by 'Islamist' President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who will adopt an authoritarian method of rule to impose his anti-Kemalist political agenda.

அமைதியையும் சமாதானத்தையும் விரும்பும் முஸ்லிம்களையும் அவற்றை போதிக்கும் அவர்களின் மார்க்கமான இஸ்லாத்தையும் கொச்சைப்படுத்தியும் முஸ்லிம் நாடுகள் மீது ஈவு இரக்னமின்றி குண்டுகளை வீசியும் வரலாற்றில் மத்திய காலப்பகுதியில் இருந்தது போல காட்டுமிராண்டித்தனமான இனப் படுகொலைகளையும் அரங்கேற்றி முஸ்லிம்களை கொன்று குவிப்பதுதான் இன்று உலகம் முழுவதும் பேசப்படும் புதிய உலக ஒழுங்காகும்.

Zionism in the age of Trump: it is becoming increasingly clear to more people that the Israeli state’s officially defined ideology is, at its very core, an anti-Jewish one. It sounds counter-intuitive. How can the “Jewish State” or the Zionist movement be anti-Semitic? But several of US President Donald Trump’s appointments have made it clearer than ever. He leads the most pro-Israel US administration in history, even while appointing key figures with anti-Semitic ties as his most important advisers.

President Sirisena’s gazette notification to declare lands occupied by the IDP Muslims in the Mannar District on the pretext of widening the perimeter of the Wilpattu National Park and protecting the environment should be viewed not simplistically as an anti-Muslim measure but more than that it should be considered in the overall context of policies embedded in the ruling neo-liberal economic paradigm. In this light the battle for revoking that notification should be fought not only by the victims of the President’s decision alone but by the general public.

The 30 per cent reduction in the salaries of Palestinian Authority (PA) employees who stayed in Gaza and left their jobs following instructions from President Mahmoud Abbas and his then head of government Salam Fayyad is not only an action that can be changed or revised. It is clear that it was actually a prelude to other measures that will be stricter and more painful and will affect various services and citizens, especially that the successive reconciliation governments have so far failed to solve the problems of other employees hired by the Hamas government in Gaza to replace their colleagues who stayed home, following the orders of Abbas.
