Israel wants to take India ties to next level Jerusalem: The biggest dream of Israeli President Shimon Peres is to go to India, if he gets an invitation, said one diplomat. Shimon Peres would very much enjoy his visit to India, said another. That was the broadest hint one got of Israel's keen desire to take its relationship with India to the next level, somewhat on the pattern of New Delhi's strategic partnership with the United States, which is the closest ally of the Jewish state too. As it is, despite India's support for the Palestinian cause, New Delhi and Tel Aviv have a wide-ranging relationship encompassing defence, economic cooperation, agriculture, food security and scientific cooperation. India is the largest customer of Israeli military equipment and Israel is the second-largest military partner of India after the Russian Federation with a military business worth around $9 billion. India is also the second-largest Asian economic partner of Israel with bilateral trade, excluding military sales, ...
You know this pisses me off. We trade with China which has more Human Rights violations and is blatently communist why the *** are we still in an Embargo with Cuba? Not to mention the Bay of Pigs was 50 years ago. Resolution claiming the end of US Blockade against Cuba will be voted for 21st occasion in United Nations General Assembly For the twenty first consecutive occasion, on November 13th, 2012, Cuba will submit to the consideration of the UN General Assembly the draft resolution entitled “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba”. Last year, 186 Member States voted in favor of this resolution, which is an irrefutable proof that the battle for the lifting of the blockade has the recognition and support of the vast majority of the International Community. The economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba remains in place and is further intensified despite the repeated and almost unanimous demand by the Inte ...

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi murdered American envoy to Libya Chris Stevens, as well as three other Americans. The story out of the Administration and President was that it was a spontaneous protest of a bad movie nobody had seen. We (and the World) were told repeatedly that is was a spontaneous protest, even our Ambassador to the UN said the incident was a protest gone awry. We now know that the statements were “in error”. The CIA Station Chief was in real-time contact with Washington and described the ongoing events as an attack. The Embassy security official was also in contact with Washington and described what he sees on the many monitors. He also stated that there was no protest prior to the attack. “As we all know, the United States lost a great ambassador and the Libyan people lost a true friend when Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the terrorist assault on our consulate in Benghazi,” Clinton said on Sept. 24. On Sept. 25, however, Obama ...

Ahmadinejad to UN: 'Uncivilized Zionists' Threaten Iran Religion Today Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called once again for the end of Israel as he addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, CBN News reports. U.N. schedulers chose Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, to hear from Ahmadinejad, who stepped to the podium as Israeli Jews were preparing to wind up 24 hours of fasting and prayers. With U.S., Canadian and Israeli representatives boycotting his speech, Ahmadinejad said his country was threatened by "uncivilized Zionists ... and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil ... are responsible for poverty, corruption, ignorance and oppression and discrimination in every corner of the world." Ahmadinejad had already accused the United States on Tuesday of bullying, during a speech in which he also called for a new world order.

Happy birthday to Nancy Reagan on this First Ladies Friday! On July 6, 1921, Nancy Davis Reagan was born in New York City as Anne Frances Robbins. She grew up following in the theatrical footsteps of her mother by working as an actress. She starred in eleven featured films and later married then-president of the Screen Actors Guild, Ronald Reagan, on March 4, 1953. In her time as the 40th First Lady of the United States, Nancy promoted the "Foster Grandparent Program," an institution that cares for the elderly and for handicapped children, and she initiated further education in drug awareness and substance abuse. Nancy hosted 30 of her fellow First Ladies during the 40th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1985, and she was the first American First Lady to address the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly. In recent years, Nancy Reagan has continued supporting her First Lady initiatives and devoted time to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California (
The United Nations General Assembly, composed of delegates from every Member State, celebrates International Women's Day to recognize that peace and social progress require the active participation and equality of women, and to acknowledge the contribution of women to international peace and security. The idea of an International Women's Day first arose at the turn of the century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies. On 8 March 1857, Garment Workers in New York City, in the United States, staged a protest. They were fighting against inhumane working conditions and low wages. The police attacked the protestors and dispersed them. Two years later, again in March, these women formed their first labour union to try and protect themselves and gain some basic rights in the workplace. On 8 March 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours; better pay, voting rights and an end to child labour ...
