Time for Macedonia to End the ‘Name’ Negotiations with Greece

Professor James Pettifer support’s MHRMI’s Our Name Is Macedonia campaign to end the name negotiations

By Oxford Professor James Pettifer – A personal view of the "name dispute" between Macedonia and Greece: Macedonia must end the name negotiations.

As a sovereign nation, Macedonia must end the name negotiations because there is never a right time to resolve an issue in which one country/ethnic group does not recognize the other's right to exist.”

— Professor James Pettifer

OXFORD, UNITED KINGDOM, April 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a speech on April 15th, 2018, as reported in the Athens newspaper ‘Kathimerini’, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on Greece and Turkey to improve their relations and also stated that their current difficulties which have led to a military fatality last week are not a matter for NATO. At first sight this is a reasonable point of view, from a distinguished international figure and is a view that should be respected. But it is also bound to raise the issue in people’s minds, ’What is NATO actually for’ when two NATO members in the eastern Mediterranean region may be edging towards a wider conflict, in the view of many observers. It is against this background that the hapless Macedonian and Greek Foreign Ministers are continuing their weary rigmarole of staged meetings, where all that is on the table are a series of name possibilities, most of which have been around for ten years of more, and all of which offend major opinion constituencies in both countries.

If tensions were lower in the region, perhaps all this would not matter very much. Diplomats are the talkers of the international world and they need to find something to discuss. But the name issue is not that at the moment. The link to possible NATO membership is presented as a panacea to the Macedonian publics, where everyone with detailed knowledge of the situation on the ground sees that this is not the case. The country has been close to NATO for many years. Personally I remember interviewing the late President Kiro Gligorov back in 1994 when the Kosovo crisis was developing and I asked him what his policy would be if it worsened and refugee flows began in a future crisis. He replied that in the end Macedonia would have little option but to cooperate with NATO, and it did so, to the great credit of the people, with huge camps being opened at places like Cegrane to accommodate those fleeing war.

In the post-conflict period, the country has also had a good relationship with NATO, particularly by contributing infantry to international coalitions. So NATO has little to complain about in terms of the Macedonian contribution to the war against terrorism and international security. Policies of this kind can surely carry on under any future Macedonian government if that is what the people wish. The intense pressure being applied to the elite in Macedonia to change the name to secure full EU and NATO membership is not only morally bankrupt but also destabilising in terms of regional relationships.

The back ground to the NATO and EU pressure is also unpleasant in other ways. The two countries are being treated like adolescents, by the ‘grown ups’ that belong to the EU and NATO when in fact a good deal has been done quietly, bilaterally, to improve relations. People from the Republic of Macedonia travel on vacation to Greece and do business without difficulty, people from Greece are visiting centres like Ohrid and have a pleasant time and are made welcome. There are, however, significant human rights issues relating to the use of the Macedonian language, and cultural politics in northern Greece, and these must be dealt with. Remember that the European Court of Human Rights, European Commission Against Racism and Intolerance, and the United Nations itself, have repeatedly demanded that Greece (and Bulgaria) immediately recognize their large Macedonian minorities – as Macedonians – and end the persecution of them. Basic recognition of an ethnic group's basic human rights is an obvious way to improve relations, not worsen them as Greece and Bulgaria claim.

I started to travel and study in Macedonia and the region over thirty years ago, after making my first visit to Skopje in 1968 as an Oxford student to help with post-earthquake reconstruction work. I remember the fallen churches and minarets across the streets lying as piles of rubble as if it was yesterday.

Over those many years the governments in Macedonia have a good deal to be proud of, and many recent achievements have been forgotten by the ever-scheming international elite diplomats of the West and their spin doctors. For instance, the government of Gruevski and VMRO-DPMNE navigated the international banking crisis far better than Greece did, with a prudent policy that certainly negatively affected living standards but also brought stability. A strong central government was necessary to do this. That fact has been completely elided from current discussions. There are other injustices. The Berlin pressure to take thousands of economic migrants is particularly unjust given that German policy caused the migration crisis in the first place.

How should the ending of the talks be achieved? Macedonian governments hear more than enough from non-Macedonians about what should be done, particularly from international figures whose real loyalties may lie elsewhere. I am reluctant to comment but it seems to me the best way is, as a sovereign and free nation, that the Republic of Macedonia end the name negotiations because there is never a right time to resolve an issue in which one country/ethnic group does not recognize the other's right to exist. This is a point made by Macedonian Human Rights Movement International's Our Name Is Macedonia campaign.

Macedonia and Greece, instead, can continue the steady ongoing process of improving relations, on a case by case basis. Also, in my opinion, given the unfortunate background of foreign interference in Macedonia, a central factor in the current crisis, the government should not be slow to declare people persona non grata and remove their diplomatic or other visas if they can be shown to have been acting contrary to the interests of the country. If there are people within the upper reaches of the current government who would also fall into that category, well, that is an issue for the Macedonian people, not foreigners, to decide how to act.

Brooklyn Borough President visits Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices in recognition of Autism Awareness Month

Borough President meets students at Shema Kolainu

Staff at Shema Kolainu present Eric Adams with student artwork

Mrs. Gili Rechany, the Educational Director of Shema Kolainu discusses the tools students learn in Daily Living Skills classroom

School and center for children with Autism hosts a observation tour for Eric L. Adams

BROOKLYN, NY, KINGS, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, Friday April 20th, 2018, /EINPresswire.com/ — Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices, A School and Center for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), was pleased to host Brooklyn Borough President, Eric L. Adams, as an honored guest.

The Borough President was warmly greeted by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, SK Founder and CEO, Mr. Ezra Friedlander, CEO at The Friedlander Group, Mrs. Suri Gruen, the Program Director and Mrs. Gili Rechany, the Educational Director. Mr. Adams was guided through the school and was introduced to the various classrooms, activity areas, and sensory therapy rooms the model school offers. Mr. Adams was particularly impressed with the Daily Living Skills Center, where children are taught to become more independent by learning practical life skills in an applicable environment. The room is set up to practice tasks such as laundry, cooking, making the bed, and even operating as a mock grocery store. Mr. Adams inquired about the range of potential improvement that takes place in a child’s duration a child's stay at the school. Dr. Weinstein responded by explaining how the school has been very successful over the years improving the life of our students by giving them the tools and providing therapy geared toward their personal needs. In fact, many children that have come to Shema Kolainu that were non-verbal, began speaking or learned to communicate and connect using AAC (Alternative and Augmented Communication device). This is made possible through the consistent practice and learning techniques provided by the school’s dedicated therapists and teachers. Dr. Weinstein added, “every child has a range, our goal is to give them a way to communicate”. He recalled a personal experience of encountering a child struggling to speak, which was the driving force behind initiating a specialized and intensive speech program.

Mr. Adams was amused to hear children from two separate classrooms refer to him as "Mr. Policeman" because of the blue jacket he wore. As a special thanks, a piece of artwork created by one of the students, was framed and presented as a gift and he happily responded, “Thank you, I really like it, I’m going to hang it in my office.”

Shema Kolainu is a non profit, multi-cultural school providing quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring. Shema Kolainu offers a broad spectrum evidence-based education and therapeutic programs to children with ASD and related disabilities in a warm and nurturing environment.

Our Revolution Calls on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Stop Trans Mountain Pipeline

Movement organization inspired by Sen. Bernie Sanders calls on Canadian Prime Minister to stop the development of the Trans Mountain Pipeline

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our Revolution, the movement organization inspired by Sen. Bernie Sanders, on Friday called on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to stop the development of the Trans Mountain Pipeline. On Monday, Trudeau announced that the Canadian government would enter talks with Texas-based company Kinder Morgan to use government support for Kinder Morgan as it seeks to build the biggest tar sands pipeline on earth. The proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline would ship up to 890,000 barrels of tar sands oil a day from Alberta to the coast. The pipeline and tanker project could lead to the same climate warming impacts as 34 million cars a year.

Deborah Parker, Our Revolution Board Member and former vice chair of the Tulalip Tribes of Washington state denounced Trudeau's actions saying, “We are concerned the rights of Tribal Sovereign Nations are threatened by the Trans Mountain Pipeline. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous people requires free, prior and informed consent which this pipeline project does not have. The Trans Mountain pipeline poses a grave threat to our environment not just for today, but well into the future. Prime Minister Trudeau must respect rights of indigenous populations and respect the laws in place to protect their land from degradation.”

Jane Kleeb, Board Member of Our Revolution commented, “Instead of continuing to subsidize fossil fuels and line the pockets of Big Oil and Gas, while decimating First Nations' treaty rights and landowners' property rights, we are calling on the Prime Minister to stop the Trans Mountain Pipeline and invest in renewable energy. We need to enact stronger protections for our climate, land, and water."

Jim Hightower, Board Member of Our Revolution also weighed in, asking, "Why do politicians keep kowtowing to greedy global giants like Kinder Morgan? It's time they stop sacrificing our public health, Tribal sovereignty, small businesses, and entire ecosystems just so Big Oil bullies and pipeline profiteers can squeeze another dollar out of Mother Nature."

Sen. Nina Turner, President of Our Revolution stated, “In America and Canada, it is outrageous that fossil fuel corporations are using public funds to bail out projects that hurt people. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau can be the leader the world needs to act on climate, respect Indigenous rights, and stop this pipeline project once and for all."

The world expects more from Justin Trudeau. In the time of Trump, we need leaders willing to stand-up to the fossil fuel industry, not more politicians ready to bow down to it. In a time of climate crisis, no politician should be using public funds to bail out a failing fossil fuel project. Our Revolution is committed to standing against Trans Mountain, Dakota Access, Keystone XL, and all North American pipelines that threaten our land and water. Our Revolution was active in the fight to stop the Dakota Access pipeline, raising more than $200,000 to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and collecting nearly 250,000 petition signatures to oppose construction of the pipeline.

சிறிலங்காவை பொதுநலவாய அமைப்பிலிருந்து இடைநீக்கம் செய்க : நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் கோரிக்கை !

Thousands of Tamils Rally Against Sri Lankan President in London Shouting Go Back Maithri – # Go Back MY3

ஐநா மனிதவுரிமைப் பேரவையின் தீர்மானத்தின் பரிந்துரைகளை சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் முழுமையாகச் செயலாக்கும் வரை, சிறிலங்காவை பொதுநலவாய அமைப்பிலிருந்து இடைநீக்கம் செய்க

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM , April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

சிறிலங்காவை பொதுநலவாய அமைப்பிலிருந்து இடைநீக்கம் செய்க : நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் கோரிக்கை !

ஐநா மனிதவுரிமைப் பேரவையின் தீர்மானத்தின் பரிந்துரைகளை சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் முழுமையாகச் செயலாக்கும் வரை, பொதுநலவாய அமைப்பில் இருந்து சிறிலங்காவை இடைநீக்கம் செய்யுமாறு பொதுநலவாய அரசுத்தலைவர்களிடம் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் வலியுறுத்தியுள்ளது.

சிறிலங்கா அதனைச் செய்யத் தவறினால், அனைத்துலகக் குற்றவியல் நீதிமன்றத்தின் பார்வைக்கு அனுப்ப வேண்டும் என நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ளது.

போரின் போது தாம் செய்த பல குற்றங்களுக்கும் பொறுப்பேற்றிருப்பது போலவும், இனியும் பொறுப்பேற்கப் போவது போலவும் பன்னாட்டுச் சமுதாயத்தை நம்ப வைத்துத் தொடர்ந்தும் சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் ஏமாற்றி வருகின்றது எனவும் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் சுட்டிக்காட்டியுள்ளது.

மேலும் அக்கோரிக்கையில் தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளதாவது,

மனிதவுரிமைப் பேரவையின் தீர்மானப் பரிந்துரைகளைச் செயலாக்குவது குறித்து சிறிலங்காவின் ஆமைவேக முன்னேற்றம் தொடர்பாகத் திரும்பத் திரும்பக் கவலை தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. ஈராண்டுக் காலநீட்டிப்பு தரப்பட்ட போதிலும் 2017 மார்ச்சுக்கும் 2018 சனவரிக்கும் இடையே பெரிய முன்னேற்றம் ஏதுமில்லை. ஐநா மனிதவுரிமைப் பேரவையின் பரிந்துரைகளை சிறிலங்காவால் 2019 மார்ச்சுக்கு முன் செயலாக்க இயலுமா என்ற ஐயப்பாடுகள் எழுந்துள்ளன. ஆனால், சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் தொடர்ந்து இழுத்தடித்துக் கொண்டிருக்கிறது, அதனிடம் போதிய உறுதியில்லை என்றாலும், இந்த உறுதிப்பாடுகளை நிறைவு செய்யத் தவறினால் ஏற்படக் கூடிய விளைவுகள் பெரிதாக அதரகு உணர்த்தப்படவில்லை.

சிறிலங்கா தானே ஏற்ற உறுதிப்பாடுகளை நிறைவு செய்ய உள்ளபடியே விரும்புகிறதா என்பது குறித்துப் பலரும் கவலை தெரிவித்திருந்தும் கூட, காமன்வெல்த் அரசாங்கத் தலைவர்கள் கூட்டம் 'காமன்வெல்த் விழுமியங்கள் மற்றும் கொள்கைகளின் காவலனாக'த் திகழ்கிறது என்று கருதப்பட்டாலும் கூட, ஈராண்டுக்கொரு முறை நடைபெறும் அந்தக் கூட்டத்தை 2013ஆம் ஆண்டு கொழும்பு முன்னின்று நடத்த அனுமதிக்கப்பட்டது.

போர்க்குற்றங்களும் மானிடத்துக்கு எதிரான குற்றங்களும் பாலியல் வன்செயலும், தொடர்ந்து இராணுவத்தின் ஆக்கிரமிப்பில் இருந்து வரும் தமிழர் தாயகத்தில் கட்டமைப்பியல் இனவழிப்புக் குற்றமும் புரிந்ததாகக் குற்றச்சாட்டுக்கு ஆளாகியுள்ள ஓர் அரசுடன் கைகுலுக்கியதால் காமன்வெல்த் சிறிலங்காவிற்கு உள்ளேயும் வெளியேயும் தன் நம்பகத்தன்மையை விட்டுக் கொடுத்து விட்டது.

பல்வேறு வழிகளிலும் தெட்டத் தெளிவான சான்றுகள் வந்து குவிந்துள்ள போதிலும், தப்பே செய்யவில்லை என்று மறுத்து வருகிறது சிறிலங்கா. இந்த வகையில், அப்போதைய ஐநா பொதுச் செயலர் பான் கி-மூன் அமர்த்திய வல்லுநர் குழுவின் அறிக்கை, ஐநா உள்ளக ஆய்வறிக்கை ('சார்லஸ் பெற்றி அறிக்கை'), டப்ளின் மக்கள் தீர்ப்பாயம் கண்டறிந்தவை, சேனல் 4 படைத்த சூடுமறுப்பு வலையம் (நோ ஃபயர் ஸோன்) ஆவணப் படம், பற்பல சிறப்பு அறிக்கையாளர்களும் பன்னாட்டு அரசுசாரா அமைப்புகளும் அளித்துள்ள அறிக்கைகள்… போன்ற பல சான்றுகளைக் குறிப்பிடலாம். இவையெல்லாம் 2009ஆம் ஆண்டு ஆயுத மோதலின் இறுதிக் கட்டங்களிலும் கூட சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் கொடிய போர்க்குற்றங்களும் மானிடத்துக்கு எதிரான குற்றங்களும் செய்திருப்பதை நிறுவியுள்ளன.

பன்னாட்டுச் சமுதாயம் சிறிலங்காவின் ஏமாற்றுச் செயல்களை உணர்ந்து விட்டது என்பது அண்மையில் ஐநா மனித உரிமைகளுக்கான உயர் ஆணையர் செய்து ராது அல் உசைனும், துணை உயர் ஆணையர் கேத் கில்மோரும் வெளியிட்ட அறிக்கைகளிலிருந்து தெளிவாகத் தெரிகிறது.

பொதுநலவாய மாநாடு சிறிலங்காவில் நடைபெற்ற 1974ஆம் ஆண்டு தமிழர் ஐக்கிய விடுதலைக் கூட்டணியின் தலைவர் திரு எஸ்.ஜே.வி. செல்வநாயகம் பொதுநலவாய மாநாட்டுப் பேராளர்களுக்கு அளித்த விண்ணப்பம் தமிழர்களுக்கு எதிரான இனப் பாகுபாட்டையும் இனவதையையும் எடுத்துரைத்தது.

'இலங்கைத் தமிழர்களின் சிக்கல்களை இந்த மாநாட்டில் கூடியுள்ள பேராளர்கள் பரிவுடன் கருதிப் பார்ப்பார்கள் என்றும், சிக்கலின் தீர்வுக்குத் தங்கள் செல்வாக்கைப் பயன்படுத்துவார்கள் என்றும் நம்புகிறோம்.' என அந்த விண்ணப்பம் இறுதியாக சொல்லியிருந்தது. ஆனால் இன ஒடுக்குமுறைக்கு முற்றுப்புள்ளி வைக்க உறுதியேற்றுள்ள பொதுநலவாயம் 1974ல் பாராமுகம் காட்டிப் போனது.

அன்று தொடங்கி, சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் திட்டமிட்ட முறையிலும் பரவலாகவும் இனக் கண்ணோட்டத்தில் தமிழர்களின் மனிதவுரிமைகளைத் தொடர்ந்து மீறியுள்ளது. போரில் பல உயிர்களும் உடைமைகளும் பறிபோயின. சுதந்திரமும் நீதியும் வேண்டி நிற்கும் தமிழர்களின் துயரம் இன்றும் தொடர்கிறது.

சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் உண்மையான உள்நாட்டுச் சூழல் குறித்துப் பன்னாட்டுச் சமூகத்தைத் தொடர்ந்து ஏமாற்றி வருகிறது:

1. கண்ணுக்கெட்டிய வரை நாட்டின் இனச் சிக்கலுக்கு எவ்விதத் தீர்வும் தென்படவில்லை.

2. சிறிலங்காவில் பொறுப்புக்கூறல் குறித்து ஐநா பொதுச்செயலரின் 2011 ஏப்ரல் அறிக்கையில் போர்க்குற்றங்களாகவும் மானிடத்துக்கு எதிரான குற்றங்களாகவும் இனங்காணப்பட்ட பற்பல குற்றச்சாட்டுகளுக்கும் பொறுப்புக்கூறலை உறுதி செய்திடவோ ஐநா மனிதவுரிமைப் பேரவைத் தீர்மானங்கள் மீதோ அரசாங்கம் நம்பகமான நடைபடிகள் ஏதும் எடுத்தபாடில்லை.

3. சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் உறுதியளிப்பது போன்ற நல்லிணக்கச் செயல்வழி எதுவும் மெய்ப்படக் காணோம்; அது தீர்மானப் பரிந்துரைகளுக்குச் செயல்வடிவம் தரத் தவறி விட்டது.

4. உள்நாட்டுப் போர் முடிவுற்றதிலிருந்து இராணுவ முகாம்களும் 'உயர் பாதுகாப்பு வலையங்களும் தமிழர்களின் நிலப்பரப்பெங்கும் முளைத்துள்ளன. இராணுவம் குடியியல் ஆட்சியைக் கையிலெடுத்துக் கட்டுப்படுத்தி வருகிறது. அரசியல் கைதிகளும் போர்க் கைதிகளும் இன்றும் சிறையில் வாடுகின்றனர். தமிழர்களையே முதல் இலக்காகக் கொண்ட பயங்கரவாதத் தடுப்புச் சட்டம் நீக்கம் செய்யப்படவில்லை. காணாமற்போனவர்களின் பட்டியலும் கட்டாயக் காணாமலடித்தல்களின் பட்டியலும் இன்று வரை வெளியிடபப்டவில்லை.

5. இன்னுமொரு சிறுபான்மை மக்கள் சமுதாயமாகிய முஸ்லிம்கள் மீது தொடர்ந்து வரும் தாக்குதல்களுக்கு சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கம் பாராமுகம் காட்டியுள்ளது. சிங்களப் பேரினவாதிகளும் இனவெறியர்களும் முஸ்லிம்கள் மீது நேரடிக் கொடுந்தாக்குகள் நடத்தியுள்ளனர்; அவர்களின் உடைமைகளுக்குத் தீமூட்டியுள்ளனர்; தொழில்-வணிக நிறுவனங்களை அழித்துள்ளனர். அனைத்துலகச் சமுதாயம் கட்டிப் போடா விட்டால், இந்த ஆட்சி தன் சொந்த மக்களுக்குள்ளேயே சில பிரிவினர் மீது இனவழிப்பு வன்முறையில் ஈடுபடக் கூடிய ஒன்று என்பது வெள்ளிடைமலை நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

Baby Alfie Evans is Running Out of Time

This picture of Alfie was taken (April 16th)

This picture of Alfie was taken (April 16th)

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, USA, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alfie’s parents lost the last hearing before the judges that would have allowed him to go to Italy for further treatment. Tom Evans and Kate James will be taking the matter again to the Supreme Court in the UK. Alfie Evans is the 23 month old English boy who has been receiving mass media coverage in and outside of the UK regarding plans for his continued treatment. The prime target in a legal battle of parental rights and hospital jurisdiction, the remainder of Alfie’s life and any hopes he has at getting cured rest in the hands of the judges and legislators of the UK.

Alfie’s heavy sedation is a result of his need to use a breathing machine which was a result of the hospital misapplying his antibiotics after his being admitted for a chest infection.

He is not in a deep comatose state. His cognitive responses increase when his sedative medicines are reduced. Alfie’s family and the 100,000+ followers on his facebook page have witnessed what happens when his medications are reduced. Many video clips and pictures of his responses are taken and posted on his facebook page – Alfie’s Army. Alfie looks up at those speaking to him and holds onto their hands.

As shown in this link https://youtu.be/dYslVkvpLig, Alfie can respond to his Father’s voice. He can yawn and sneeze, and stretch. https://youtu.be/d2XBUdDPEeU. He blinks away from bright light and flinches when grabbed.

The hospital continues to make extreme calls regarding Alfie’s prognosis and his care. Upon his admission in 2016 he was given just days to live. He has since outlived that forecast beyond a year. And during this time, his father has been asked at least 100 times to remove his breathing tube. Just 2 weeks ago, after his family and followers were witnessing positive cognitive responses from Alfie, Alder Hey Hospital raised Alfie’s clobazam from 4mg to 14mg.

Currently Alfie remains heavily sedated with four anti-seizure drugs.

Alfie has all the resources necessary in place to permit his safe travel to Italy. Alder Hey Hospital agreed to a meeting Thursday, April 5th to discuss options of having Alfie physiologically reviewed to assess if he is capable of traveling to Italy for further treatment. Not 20 minutes after the meeting, the Hospital withdrew its intentions to truly consider additional options when it submitted its requests to Justice Hayden to have a date set in place to have Alfie’s breathing tube removed. Eventually the date was set to Friday the 13th.

Alfie is still fighting and so are his generous supporters. His parents simply want to have what most parents enjoy, the right to do what they find best for their child. In the hearing today, the courts ruled that the legislation of the Judges ‘trumped’ the desires of the parents.

MP Kahn countered this callous stand in an appeal to parliament. He offered his condolences for the family and a message of common sense which urged the judges to see this matter from the view of the parents, not stale legislation and medical tradition.

What is required now is for us to intercede for Alfie and his parents. It is vital for everyone to see the milestones that Alfie has reached under these extreme circumstances.

"Alfie's Dad meets the Pope."

https://news.sky.com/story/save-our-son-alfie-evans-dad-meets-the-pope-at-the-vatican-11336548

Alfie's parents have good reason to fight. Their baby boy is very much alive. Alfie has gained weight, kept his color, and continues to physically develop, portraying a healthy looking 1 year old (who is about to turn 2).

The Ongoing War in the Middle East between Radical and Moderate Isam: A Recipe for World War

The cold-war ended 1991, but, as the saying goes that “history repeats its self,” seems to occur. In fact, history is about to repeat itself, either as a physical-war or a cold-war.”

— Aldo Ajou Deng -Akuey

NAIROBI, NAIROBI, KENYA, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Until 1917, the world before Jesus Christ (born 2018 years ago), Prophet Mohamed (died on 8 June 632 AD ) and President Thomas Jefferson, was not divided into blocks or ideological camps.

The world was ruled by Emperors-such as Roman Empire, Ottoman Empire etc., Kings and the like autocracies. Human liberties, freedoms, democracy and the rule of law, were unheard of. The citizens were subjected to extraction and exploitation of one man and his family. In Germany, Karl Max (1818-1883) and Friedrich Angels (1820-1895), theoretically formulated a socialist ideology to compete with one autocracy, authoritarianism, exploitation and enslavement of human by human.

These medieval systems were then subjected to the emerging revolutionary movements in the United Kingdom, UK, (1688-1689), France (1789-1799), USA, (1775-1783) and Russia in November 1917. The first three revolutions had similar principles, dedicated to the protection of the unalienable human liberties, freedoms, democracy, and the rule of law. Wherelse Russian revolution trended for communist proletarian dictatorship.

Thus on 8 March to 7 November 1917, Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924), effectively overthrew Tsar Nicholas 11 (1868-1918), the Monarch who ruled Russia from 1894 to 1917. The Russian revolution of 1917 dismantled the Tsarist autocracy and led to the rise of the Soviet Union (Wikipedia). The Soviet Union emerged as a serious challenge to liberal democracies in UK, France, the USA and their allies in Western Europe. The Soviet Union expanded and swiftly engulfed most of Eastern Europe. This revolution introduced, for the first time in history, the ideological dichotomy between Western and Eastern Europe from 1917 to 1991.

The two ideologically emerging blocks, Eastern and Western Europe, strongly divided the world in terms of politics, economics, social fabric, and the arms race. Besides this ideological dichotomy between the two parallel blocks, there was a third block of powerful fascists dictatorship in Germany and Italy, led by Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), and Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) respectively. Both men were fierce fascists dictators that posed the security threat, not only for Europe but for the whole world, starting with first world war of 1914 to 1918. Eventually, Adolf Hitler ignited the Second World war by invading Poland from the West. Equally, Russia reacted and attacked Poland from the East. This was the root cause which, unquestionably, led to the second world war of 1939-1945.

In 1939 the developed world divided and faced themselves in an unprecedented war ever fought on the planet earth. The USA, UK, France, China and international allies joined Russia in the war against the fascists Germany, Italy, Japan and their allies too. The war lasted for six years running. Sixty million, soldiers and civilians, were killed and more hundreds of million were wounded. The war ended after liquidation of Adolf Hilter, Bonito Mussolini and total defeat and occupation of Germany, Italy, Japan, and allies worldwide. The war ended effectively in 1945.

As the war ended, there was a need for the Allies, victors of the second world war, led by the USA, the UK, France, Russia, and their Allies in the war against Germany and its allies, decided to call for “the United Nations Conference on International Organisation (UNCIO), a Convention of delegates from 50 nations. The Conference took place from 25 April to 26 June 1945 in San Francisco, California (Wikimedia).” This Conference also reviewed the Charter of the League of Nations which was formed after the first world war 1918, to cater for international peace and security. But the League of Nations failed to stop the second world war,1939-1945. The 50 delegates from fifty Allied countries plus Poland, whose delegate was delayed because of engagement in elections, signed the present United Nations (UN) Charter, a name that was suggested by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), Dwight David Eisenhower (1890-1969) and Winston Churchill (1874-1965).

Under the new Charter, the United Nations got fully established in 1946, thus ending the devastating war against the international fascism. But the ideological divide between capitalist West and communist East of Europe, led by the USA and Russia respectively, persisted and established what became known as the cold-war (1946-1991).

A physical-war or cold-war may return. But, since Al Qaeda Radical Islamic movement, led by Osama bin Laden (1957-2011) attacked the New York International Trade Center on 11 September 2001 (9/11), the US went to war, within and outside America, in pursuit of Radical Jihadist, who has sworn to destroy America, Christianity, and Judaism. Lately, Russia has escalated what looks like a renewal of physical or cold war. Now Russia, Iran, and Turkey have decided to defend Hafiz Al Saad of Syria, depicting as one of their allies.

On 10 April 2018, the US, UK, and France reacted over the use of chemical weapons by Assad’s regime against the civil society in Syria. They sent missiles to Syria, destroying chemicals targets. Russia says it will answer the missiles. If it does, then it could amount to an intensified war, similar to the war going on in Yemen. The war in Yemen demonstrates the real components and contenders to coming war. The West and its allies led by Saudi Arabia-Egypt and the Islamic moderates in the Middle versus Russia-Iran and Radical Jihadists in the world. This war will be fought in the Middle East, specifically in the Arab-Persian Gulf. The war will end here, but the cold war will reconvene and continue unabated between Russia and it’s Jihadist radicals and the western support to Muslim moderates.

In conclusion, the World Wars, first and second, in 1914-1918 and 1939-1945, respectively, in conformity and similarity to what happened in Poland 1939, when Germany invaded Poland from the west and Russia attacked Poland from the East, thus building up the third World war to its effects. Now, with Yemen, Saudi Arabi- Egypt in South Yemen and Iran in North Yemen, both backed by the USA and Russia respectively, the third World war is on practically physically,Russia respectively, the third World war is on practically physically, in proxy or already posing the war-coldness in the making.

New CrisisNow.com Website Dedicated to Transforming Mental Health Crisis Systems Launched by NASMHPD

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) Executive Director, Dr Brian Hepburn, announced today the creation of a new website dedicated to providing the framework needed to optimize mental health crisis services within communities.

“There is a roadmap to a safe, effective and value-focused mental health crisis system. NASMHPD is proud to be the lead organization in the creation of the CrisisNow.com website. With the tools and information presented on this website, any community can make improvements to their crisis system and see meaningful results.”

According to Dr. Hepburn, mental health crisis services are an integral part of the health care continuum. A crisis system is only as healthy as its ability to provide timely and effective care for those in need. Challenges in current crisis systems often revolve around access to the right care at the right time. Lack of access frequently leads to an escalation of the crisis that then requires a more costly intervention. These cases tax the crisis system as well as those seeking services.

In order to address these challenges, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention created a task force to advance objective 8.2 of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (NSSP). The results were Crisis Now: Transforming Services is Within Our Reach. To promote these principals, NASMHPD is partnering with the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and RI International.

Co-lead for the Action Alliance Crisis Services Task Force, David Covington said “The website houses resources around the core elements of a sustainable effective crisis system and provides a self-assessment as an important starting point. It offers practical solutions to maximizing care and improving community safety in a sustainable way.”

Dr. John Draper, Director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, added, “The crisisnow.com website demonstrates a system that diverts people in the midst of a mental health crisis away from the caregivers of last resort, emergency departments and law enforcement to those that can best help. Additionally, the website shows these solutions are being applied now and points to those who have successfully implemented these principles in their communities.”

Thousands of Tamils Rally Against Sri Lankan President in London Shouting Go Back Maithri – # Go Back MY3

They also urged Commonwealth to suspend Sri Lanka, until it fully implements the recommendations made by the UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM , April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Thousands of Tamils rally against Sri Lankan President's visit to London shouting Go Back Maithri – # Go Back MY3. Sri Lankan President is in London to attend Commonwealth Heads of Government's meeting.

Several demonstrators carried signs urging Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) to suspend Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth, until the Government fully implements the recommendations made by the UN Human Rights Council Resolution L 30/1 (due by March 2019).

Failing this, Sri Lanka should be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a UN Conducted Referendum should be conducted for the Tamils to decide their future destiny, to ensure a peaceful, permanent political solution.

Repeated concerns have been raised about the slow progress occurring in Sri Lanka with regards to implementing the recommendations of the L 30/1 UN Human Rights Council resolution. Despite a two year extension, very little progress has been made during the period between March 2017 and January 2018, with doubts about whether Sri Lanka will be able to implement the UNHRC’s recommendations before March 2019. However, despite continued stalling and the lack of commitment by the Sri Lankan Government, few consequences have been delivered to them for failing to fulfil these commitments.

Sri Lanka denies any wrongdoing, despite clear and mounting evidence from various sources. These include the report by the Panel of Experts appointed by the then U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, the U.N. Internal Review Report (‘Charles Petrie Report’), the findings of the Dublin People’s Tribunal, the Channel 4’s No-Fire-Zone documentary, and the numerous UN Special Rapporteurs and INGO reports. These have all established that the Government of Sri Lanka committed heinous war crimes and crimes against humanity even during the final stages of the armed conflict in 2009.

As demonstrated recently by the statements released by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, as well as by Deputy High Commissioner Kate Gilmore, the international community has become aware of Sri Lanka’s deceptive acts.

In 1974 when the Commonwealth Conference took place in Sri Lanka, the President of the main Tamil political party the Tamil United Liberation Front, the late Mr S.J.V Chelvanayagam QC, presented a memorandum to the delegates of the Commonwealth Conference narrating the racial discrimination against, and persecution of the Tamils. The submission concluded: “ It is our hope that the problems of the Tamils of Ceylon will receive the sympathetic consideration of the delegates assembled at this Conference and that they will use their good offices to help the resolution of the problem.” The Commonwealth, which is committed to ending racial oppression, turned a blind eye in 1974.

Since then, the Government of Sri Lanka has continued to violate the human rights of Tamils systematically and pervasively on account of their ethnicity. During the final six months of the war alone over 70 thousand Tamils were killed and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by Sri Lankan Security Forces. even after the war ended in 2009, abuses against Tamils are still continuing.

Here are some points:

1. There is no political solution to the country’s ethnic conflict anywhere in sight.
2. The Government has not taken any credible steps so far to ensure accountability for the numerous allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity identified in the April 2011 report of the Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka or on the UN HRC Resolutions.
3. The process of reconciliation that the Sri Lankan government promises has not been demonstrated; and they have failed to implement the resolution’s recommendations
4. Since the end of the civil war, military camps and ‘High Security Zones’ have dotted the Tamils areas and the army has taken control over civilian rule. Political and prisoners of war are still languishing in prisons, the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) which primarily targets Tamils has not been repealed, and lists of missing persons and enforced disappearances are yet to be released.
5. The Sri Lankan government has turned a blind eye to the ongoing attacks on yet another minority population – the Muslims, who have been physically assaulted, their properties set on fire and businesses destroyed by Sinhala racists and extremists. It is clear that this is a regime that will keep on indulging in genocidal violence against sections of its own population unless reined in by the global community.
