"I loved the way this skit fearlessly dives into all the taboo areas. Gorgeous, and very reminiscent of the type of humour with which I grew up. Having said that, I always approach humour with caution: what flies well in one culture can bomb…"

"British culture/society is deeply anti-semitic but because there are not so many Jews in Britain since they were ejected in the middle ages, it does not come to the surface. I'm sure the Brits were happy to find solutions to the European Jewish…"

"The British were also playing power politics. They were always much more interested in trade routes, control of the oceans, and oil, than people."

Where war is at home

Posted on January 6, 2010 at 11:22am 0 Comments

... is the title of an article in the last "Die Zeit".



http://www.zeit.de/2010/01/Krisenbogen



Splendid article (if you can read German, that is...). How the French and the British caused ME conflicts (from Jerusalem to Kurdistan to Pakistan to Afghanistan). WW I played against Germany played out via Germany's ally Turkey; the lust for oil; and the route to India. WW 1 led to Versailles, Nazism, WW 2 & mass emigration… Continue

Don't always trust Wikipedia, It has been cracked last year. A young man managed to make someone who didn't exist die and then give him a history that never existed and everyone started to morn. The proof is in the pudding. Thinking if we could just get rid of all the politicans we might just have a society worth living. Then again, without corruption we have no need to build. Risk vs Demand. Looking forward to seeing you on mepeace.org.
