06-01-2010 13:00

Here is a sample telephone statement to say when you call the egyptian embassy. The egyptian embassy has stated they have received many calls and emails. I asked approximately how many calls and emails they've received this morning. he sounded fed up and said he can't disclose except saying they've received "a lot". I read the statement and as soon as he heard the words viva palestina he put the phone down, but never hung up, he walked away from the phone. I could hear talking and phones ringing in the background. After 20 seconds he returned back to the phone, and I continued reading my statement he sounded now really annoyed probably having expected me to hang up. After reading my statement I asked him how my raised concerns would be next processed, he said he had no power and that he said if you email it would forwarded to the relevant authority who would do something about it.

US' Next War Target: YEMEN

30-12-2009 17:43

Northern Yemen Tribes
Yemen is US' Next Target on War Against Terrorism ... Obama promised to crush Al-Qaeda in Yemen ... The US government announced its relentless commitments to crush terrorists in Yemen. Yesterday, Barack Obama promised ‘accelerated offensive’ against militants in Yemen by citing the example of a 23-year-old Nigerian who supposedly wanted to bomb a US bound airliner. The president of that North American country said he would commit ‘every element of national power’ to perform another mission in the Middle East, a region which holds huge oil and gas reserves.

The return of Saharawi hunger striker Aminatou Haidar to Western Sahara is, in her own words, a victory for ‘international law, for human rights, for international justice’.
