His cause is noble; there is no doubt about it. But the prime question is which class interest his entire effort would serve if at all he gets success in his mission? It is definitely the multinationals who (find the state structure to be the barriers to flow their capital investment in India, the way they like)… Continue

Are Turkey and Israel Kissing Cousins Again?

Relations between Turkey and Israel have been strained to the breaking point, ever since nine Turkish activists on the Mavi Marmara tried to run Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza, and were killed by Israeli naval commandos in May of last year.

Well known to the residents of Derry, Ireland, where we met last month, Richard Moore was shot at the age of 10 by a British solider on his way home from school. Taking a rubber bullet on the bridge of his nose, Richard lost…

OASIS OF PEACE!!!!! THEY NEED OUR HELP!!

I am new to the blog world so I am not exactly sure how the whole thing works. What I do know is that mepeace speaks to issues I am extremely passionate about. I am a 20 years-old female, a Californian, and a Jew.
