Today I am homeward bound. I start the long trek home in 5 hours and will be in East London by lunch time tomorrow. New York was fun but home is home. I cannot put enough value to all that I learned from being at the United Nations General Assembly and from meeting the people that were there. I will be wiritng about this learning so that I share this knowledge with others. I think that women the world over realise the value of internatioal work but it is always a struggle to fund it and to have mechanisms for linking it to their local level work.

Sorry, the Vice President, Machar, is a Hypocrite Oct. 18Featured, Uncategorizedno comments BY: Fanwell Edward, OCT. 18/2012, SSN; Vice President Dr. Riek Machar has unfortunately never missed an opportunity to unintentionally convince the public that he is a hypocrite of the worst kind. The hypocrisy the VP has displayed on recent occasions is breathtaking. After travelling to New York at the end of September to deliver South Sudan speech at the 67th United Nations General Assembly on behalf of President Kiir, who was bogged down in negotiations with Sudan president in Addis Ababa, Dr. Machar went to the American Mid-West to address the mainly Nuer South Sudanese community in Omaha, Nebrasaka. He, among other things, urged his audience to work together as South Sudanese regardless of their political affiliations. But in the same breath he announced to the same audience his intention to bar the registration of SPLM-DC and charge the leader of the second largest political party in South Sudan with treason. ...
Rwanda Wins UN Security Council Seat for 2013-14 New York -- The United Nations General Assembly this morning elected Rwanda to one of five rotational seats on the UN Security Council for the term 2013-14. Along with Argentina, Rwanda was elected on the first ballot. The remaining three positions continue to be contested through subsequent ballots, and will be resolved in the coming hours. Rwanda’s Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo thanked UN members for the faith they have shown in Rwanda.“We are grateful to have won the support of so many of our fellow member states who responded to our message Rwanda Values Peace, and we are honored to serve. We particularly thank our friends and allies throughout Africa for their overwhelming support,” Mushikiwabo said.Rwanda, which enjoyed unanimous backing of the African Union, last served on the Security Council in 1993-94 during which period the country endured a genocide against Tutsis that saw more than one million victims. In eighteen years of focus ...

Denja Yaqub THE STORY BELOW, SENT TO ME BY A FRIEND, MAY INTEREST YOU. read on please: As diplomats congregated for the United Nations General Assembly, delegations from some of the poorest countries in the world spent extravagantly in New York City while their homelands struggle, NBC 4 New York's I-Team has discovered. “The lavish spending is just endemic of autocratic politics as a whole,” said Alastair Smith, a politics professor from New York University and co-author of “The Diplomat’s Handbook.” He believes the U.N.’s Manhattan address has become a distraction from the intended work of the General Assembly. “They are here for the shopping, the food the wine, the dining. If it was in a less attractive place, I'm sure fewer people would want to come as hangers-on,” said Smith. I-Team cameras found several visitors with the U.N. delegation from Swaziland walking out of high-end retailer Bergdorf Goodman. The women had Bergdorf Goodman shopping bags, though they said the items inside were ...
No change in policy on Kashmir, says U.S. WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday said there was no change in its stated policy that Kashmir was a bilateral issue that needed to be resolved between India and Pakistan, and would like to see the recent economic warming between the two sides translate into a better conversation on that issue. “With regard to our own policy on Kashmir, it hasn’t changed. It’s been the same for a very long time,” State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters when asked about the sharp exchange of words between India and Pakistan during the ongoing United Nations General Assembly session in New York. For the past several decades, the U.S. has maintained that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan and the two countries need to resolve it peacefully through dialogue. The US official was highly appreciative of the ongoing peace process between the two nations especially in the economic field. “We have said for some time that we applaud ...

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attempted to stir the United Nations General Assembly in New York against Iran's nuclear program with this diagram of a bomb. It didn't go over so well.
President Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly in New York - and what a disappointing speech it was. He should have used the international platform to make an unapologetic case for freedom. The President failed the American people—and America’s allies—in five major ways. 1. He failed to give a robust defense of free speech. In tripping over the YouTube video that was offensive to Muslims, the President seemed to validate other countries’ disregard for freedom of speech: "I know that not all countries in this body share this particular understanding of the protection of free speech. We recognize that. But in 2012, at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete. The question, then, is how we respond." He also admonished people for offending others, saying, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those wh ...
Address by Mr. Ahmet Davutoğlu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey at the 67th United Nations General Assembly, 28 September 2012, New York - As I have personally witnessed during my visit in June, the people of Rakhine region and especially the Rohingya Moslems are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. The democratization process underway in Myanmar provides us with a window of opportunity as the government repeatedly stressed and showed its readiness to cooperate with the international community for easing the suffering of these people. - If we cannot regard the rights of a person in Syria, Palestine, Somalia, Afghanistan and Rakhine region and other places, as equal as of our own, how can we talk about freedom and justice?
H.E John Dramani Mahama has assured Ghanaians in the Diaspora that he will respect and accept the results of the December 7 elections whether it favours him or not. He said his decision to contest for the presidency was inspired by his desire to continue to work for the good people of Ghana, adding that he was not bent on winning the election at all cost. “I will respect the verdict of the people of Ghana in the December election. I am not one of the people who want to win the election at all cost,” he said. President Mahama made this know when he addressed Ghanaians in New York as part of his visit to the United States of America to attend the 67TH United Nations General Assembly. President Mahama, who was endorsed as flag-bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2012 election following the demise of Late President Atta Mills, said the decision as to who would become the President after the December 7, 2012 election rested with God and Ghanaians. He pledged his commitment to ensure th ...
President Barack Obama has not planned a single meeting with foreign leaders who are visiting New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly. He has already received criticism for failing to make time in his election campaign schedule to meet Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but now it is clear he will not meet any of the other World Leaders who are descending on the Big Apple for the annual event. Now Obama is being slammed from both the right and the left for finding time to meet with the ladies of television’s “The View” but not with Britain’s David Cameron, Egypt’s Mohammed Morsi, France’s Francois Hollande, Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai or any of the 120 leaders in town.

Obama Skips Diplomacy With World Leaders, Makes Time For 'The View' Posted 09/25/2012 06:47 PM EST Leadership: President Obama declined to meet any World Leaders at the United Nations General Assembly this week, but found time to guest star on "The View." Lost in the celebrity-in-chief's choice: American interests. For a president who lectured about the primacy of diplomacy in his hour-long address to the U.N., he sure didn't make time to practice any. Instead of taking the annual opportunity to hold bilateral sideline meetings with allies and partners about urgent issues, as all presidents do, an Obama aide told an obviously aghast New York Times reporter: "Look, if he met with one leader, he would have to meet with 10," and "in this election year, campaigning trumped meetings with World Leaders." Which is about the size of it. The president's priority in New York was to go on the televised hen party known as "The View" and any meeting with the leader of mortally threatened Israel, or of China-menaced Ja ...

The world media and international leaders can't be conned any more. But gullible Americans still can be, and are.Nearly four years after all his hype about 'hope and change', the changes proved destructive or elusive, and hope is all but gone for any but die hard Obamanistas. But they'll still vote for him because Romney hasn't proven to be as effective a liar; or they just prefer a Jeremiah Write Christian to a Mormon. He's created a future of permanent poverty thanks to his ever increasing national debt, and done his best to destroy freedom of religion - unless it's Islam. Go figure...Because i can't..

It is important for Iranian officials to be pressured at the upcoming UN General Assembly and wherever they make appearances around the globe. Iran’s genocidal rhetoric, human rights abuses, calls for the annihilation of a UN member state, support of the brutalization in Syria, and military nuclear program must not be normalized. There must be zero tolerance for Iran’s deplorable behavior. The hateful regime should experience complete isolation thr ...

Obama offers to meet with Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi: President Obama has invited Egypt's new president to meet him in New York when the United Nations General Assembly convenes in September, an administration official confirmed to The Hill.
