Those Danish Cartoons: Don’t Be Fooled This Isn’t an Issue of Islam versus Secularism
By : ROBERT FISK - Saturday February 11, 2006
1 comment
By ROBERT FISK So now it’s cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed with a bomb-shaped turban. Ambassadors are withdrawn from Denmark, Gulf nations clear their shelves of Danish produce, Gaza gunmen threaten the European Union. In Denmark, Fleming Rose, the "culture" editor of the pip-squeak newspaper which published these silly cartoons—last September, for heaven’s sake—announces that we are witnessing a "clash of civilisations" between secular Western democracies and (...)

A New Black Power
By : Walter Mosley - Saturday February 11, 2006
1 comment
by Walter Mosley Most black Americans have been Democrats for at least the fifty-three years that I’ve been alive. What have the Democrats done for us in all that time? We have the lowest average income of any large racial group in the nation. We’re incarcerated at an alarmingly high rate. We are still segregated and profiled, and have a very low representation at the top echelons of the Democratic Party. We are the stalwarts, the bulwark, the Old Faithful of the Democrats, and (...)

A homecoming
By : James Carroll - Saturday February 11, 2006
By James Carroll AMERICA HAS had a difficult time reckoning with its racist past. Slavery was a defining part of the cultures and economies out of which the nation grew, and for most of its first century the ownership of humans by other humans was taken for granted. A pseudo-Darwinian ranking by ’’race" justified that order, which stood on pillars of skin color and ethnic origin. When that blatant structure of denigration was overthrown by the Civil War, implicit assumptions of (...)

The Road to the Muslim Holocaust
By : fidelista - Thursday February 9, 2006
7 comments
"We are being challenged by Islam these years - globally as well as locally. It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and lazy. We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance. And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction”. (...)

What Kind of Damage The Julland Posen Newspaper Has Done
By : mohamed Younis - Wednesday February 8, 2006

As you all know that Islam and Muslims respect all religions and the means of media in Islamic countries did not contempt any religion. That respect is a basic rule in Islam, as can be concluded from many verses in the holly Quraan, For example the verse 108 says:- . The Danish newspaper (Jyllands Posten ) exposed to Islam and prophet Mohammed in insolent and sarcasm method. If one recalls that , according to Islamic faith, drawing images of the prophet is not allowed he can imagine (...)

Muslim-Bashing and the Power of Cartoons
By : William Hughes - Sunday February 5, 2006
Shame on the European newspapers for publishing grossly disrespectful cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the founder of Islam. One of the original 12 cartoons, which were all first published in a Danish tabloid, in Sept., 2005, showed him wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with a burning fuse. Some of the offensive cartoons were then reprinted in other newspapers in European countries. (1) How would Christians like it, if someone showed Jesus, the "Prince of Peace," with an H-bomb (...)

Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President Saturday, January 21, 2006 Dear President Bush: Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your campaign and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of (...)

Dear UN Secretary General I am writing to you asking you to act, according to your responsibilities, to stop the waves of insults and sarcasms about the Prophet Mohamed that are appearing in European media under the slogan of “ freedom of expression”.

The King That Was A Queen

by Wayne Besen Coretta Scott King was a wonderful soul of love and empathy who will be mourned by millions of people. She was the King who was a queen, because she understood her husband’s "dream" was much greater than achieving liberty for one narrow slice of the population. "For many years now, I have been an outspoken supporter of civil and human rights for gay and lesbian people," Coretta Scott King said at the 25th anniversary luncheon for Lambda Legal Defense and Education (...)

What Was the Matter with Ohio?: Unions and Evangelicals in the Rust Belt
By : James Straub - Friday January 27, 2006
by James Straub It was a fittingly ironic end to an election full of grotesque twists: When George W. Bush was narrowly reelected president of the United States, it was the electoral votes of the state he had harmed most that gave him the final nudge across the finish line. Ohio went for the second election in a row to the Republican clown prince. But if the first Bush victory was tragedy, the one in 2004 was surely farce: has world history ever turned before on the artful elevation of gay (...)

Girls Against Boys?
By : Katha Pollitt - Friday January 27, 2006
by Katha Pollitt I went to Radcliffe, the women’s wing of Harvard, at a time when the combined undergraduate student body was fixed at four male students for every female one. I don’t remember anyone worrying about the boys’ social lives, or whether they would find anyone to marry—even though nationally, too, boys were more likely to go to college and to graduate than girls. When in 1975 President Derek Bok instituted equal-access admissions, nobody said, "Great (...)

Will & Disgrace?
By : Wayne Besen - Wednesday January 25, 2006
1 comment
by Wayne Besen When a gay friend found out that NBC was canceling Will & Grace he was ecstatic. He derisively called the show "Will & Disgrace" and compared it to a minstrel show because the effeminate homosexual "Jack," played by Sean Hayes, is consistently the butt of jokes. He is right that Jack is often the punch line, but I think historically this sitcom will go down as a knockout success for the gay community. Will & Grace isn’t perfect, but it came along at the (...)

By Dave Zirin, Dave Zirin is the author of "What’s My Name, Fool?: Sports and Resistance in the United States" and a columnist for Slam magazine. THE NEW Disney film "Glory Road" tells the story of a basketball game that put sports in the middle of the civil rights movement. But it also recalls a time when the ordinary actions of coaches could unwittingly transcend sports and make a mark on history. Key to the legacies of the two Hall of Fame coaches at the heart of "Glory Road" is (...)

Editing Chavez to Manufacture a Slur. Some outlets spread spurious charges of anti-Semitism
By : Fair - Tuesday January 24, 2006
1 comment
It began with a bulletin from the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles (1/4/06) accusing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of invoking an old anti-Semitic slur. In a Christmas Eve speech, the Center said, Chavez declared that "the world has wealth for all, but some minorities, the descendants of the same people that crucified Christ, have taken over all the wealth of the world." The Voice of America (1/5/06) covered the charge immediately. Then opinion journals on the right took up the (...)

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez Frias did not fire off missiles at innocent women and children

by Mary MacElveen It is so typical of the United States media to sound the alarm as they just did in an editorial: Halt Chavez arms buildup as if the sky is falling. Meanwhile, under this Bush administration, and as reported in a previous article, they allow Russia to rebuild the arms race ... which is far more devastating to the human race. Easy does it, my fellow Americans, you have nothing to fear from President Hugo Chavez ... but you do from Bush. Come to think of it, so does the (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
