In the opinion of environment experts, the construction process can harm the nature complexes of the region.

Why do we hate them?

07-07-2007 08:41

When I came over to Britain some thirteen years ago, I found a very tolerant place. I was amazed to see so many people of so many colours, not just living together in peace, but living in full harmony. At Essex University, the institute where I was doing my postgraduate studies, everyone was enthusiastic about post-colonialism. The Brits, so it seemed to me at the time, were repenting over their embarrassing colonial past. I was mildly impressed but not totally overwhelmed. At the end of the day, it isn’t that difficult to denounce your grandfather’s crimes.

In Denial Over Terrorism

07-07-2007 08:26


The failed carbombs in the Haymarket on Fri. 29 June and the attempted suicide attack on Glasgow airport on Sat. 30 June have demonstrated the continuing threat of al-Qaeda-type violence in Britain. While much remains confusing or unknown to the public, at the time of writing some insiders believe ‘the leaders of the cell were from overseas but that local “home-grown” extremists may have helped.’(1)

Israel divides and rules

06-07-2007 23:19

During the past half century the search for a pacific solution to the Palestine question has been no more then a fake trail laid down by the old Zionist plan of an Eretz that includes all of the West Bank.
The old plan is doing well: By this year only 22 per cent of the original Palestine remains in Palestinian hands.
So, why then are we subjected periodically to the charade of a solution?

These are Brown's bombs, too

06-07-2007 22:55

Just as the London bombs in the summer of 2005 were Blair's bombs, the inevitable consequence of his government's lawless attack on Iraq, so the potential bombs in the summer of 2007 are Brown's bombs. Gordon Brown has been an unerring supporter of the unprovoked bloodbath whose victims now equal those of the Rwandan genocide, according to the American scientist who led the 2006 Johns Hopkins School of Public Health survey of civilian dead in Iraq. While Tony Blair sought to discredit this study, British government scientists secretly praised it as "tried and tested" and an "underestimation of mortality". The "underestimation" was 655,000 men, women and children. That is now approaching a million. It is the crime of the century.

Brown’s constitutional reform—a smokescreen for right-wing measures

06-07-2007 16:24

Gordon Brown’s first major speech as prime minister, setting out his proposals on constitutional reform, was delayed by 24 hours due to the car bombs in London and Glasgow. As with his government’s supposedly low-key handling of the terror scare, his remarks on Tuesday before the House of Commons were greeted as a significant departure from the Blair era.
