Pope Francis Set To Canonize Islamic Missionary Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of ISIS
By Robert Barsocchini


All the sources and quotes in this article are accurate, but were made about Junípero Serra (who was just canonized by Pope Francis) and the Euro/Christian genocide against and enslavement and conquest of the Native people of what are now known as the USA and the Americas. In this piece, Junípero Serra, Christianity, Churches/Missions, Natives/Indigenous Peoples, and the USA/Americas have been replaced with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islam, Mosques, the Yazidis (who have been particularly brutalized by ISIS), and locations in the Middle East

The Relevance Of Gandhian Political Economy
By Sukumaran C. V.


Arundhati Roy, the greatest critic of Gandhiji, quotes his sentences ('God forbid that India ever took to industrialization after the manner of the West. The economic imperialism of a single tiny island kingdom is today keeping the world in chains. If an entire nation of 300 millions took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts') and says in The Doctor and the Saint: Ambedkar, Ghandhi and the battle against caste: "As the earth warms up, as glaciers melt and forests disappear, Ghandhi's words have turned out to be prophetic."

Obama Deifies American Hegemony
By Paul Craig Roberts


Obama justified all of Washington's violence against millions of peoples on the grounds that Washington is well-meaning and saving the world from dictators. Obama attempted to cover up Washington's massive war crimes, crimes that have killed and displaced millions of peoples in seven countries, with feel good rhetoric about standing up to dictators

Violently Extremist, Climate Criminal Australian Coalition Government
Aims To Prevent Science-based Radicalisation Of Greens
By Dr Gideon Polya


The extreme right-wing Coalition Australian Government has issued an anti-Green document called "Preventing violent extremism and radicalisation in Australia". However an Open Letter sent to new Australia PM Malcolm Turnbull sets out how radicalisation is actually vital for science-based social advance and how successive pro-war, US lackey, climate criminal, war criminal, human rights–abusing and child-abusing Australian governments are committed to state terrorism, nuclear terrorism and violent extremism

Arab World: Authoritarianism Is Menace To Peace And Conflict Management
By Mahboob A Khawaja


If the Arab leadership lacks the capacity to imagine a new future of their own, out of their own originality of thoughts and priorities, none of the super powers have strategic abilities and capacity to change the overwhelming culture of sectarian killings, insane bombing and displacement of refugees and continuing madness of bogus wars

America's Muslim Obsession
By Taj Hashmi


Inviting Ahmed Mohamed to the White House will not permanently appease Muslims anywhere. It is high time America stops supporting autocrats and human rights violators like Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Sheikhdoms, Egypt, Israel, and anti-Assad forces in Syria. It must stop demonizing Iran too. Washington must realize – sooner the better – not only Muslims but also others have started believing in the conspiracy theories about 9/11, and the enigmatic rise of the so-called Islamic State. As Muslims in America deserve dignity and equal opportunities, so do Muslims abroad

Narenddra Modi, Myth Making And The Medical profession
By Vidyadhar Date


A more philosophically-inclined Prime Minister would have given a completely different interpretation of Ganesha . The recently concluded Ganapati festival reminded me of the controversial remark made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year about Ganesha. He was subjected to a lot of criticism in the media for his remark that the elephant head on the lord showed that ancient India had developed expertise for major transplants

Kashmir's "Internet Curtain"!
By Mohammad Ashraf


Blocking internet, suspending mobile services, confining people to their homes remind one about the infamous "Iron Curtain" of the former USSR
