IPPNW: Online-Mitmachaktion an Außenminister Westerwelle – Verträge statt Bomben – Atomwaffenfrei jetzt!

Es ist unbedingt notwendig, dass Israel und Iran an einen Tisch kommen, um über Atomwaffen zu reden. Iran zu bombardieren wird seine Führung erst recht provozieren, Atomwaffen zu bauen.

Richard Silverstein: Anti-Jihadi Video, Textbook Case for Destroying Relations with Muslim Nations

While the murder of four U.S. embassy personnel in Libya is a heinous act, the lead-up to the act and what promises to be a grisly response to it offers a textbook example of how NOT to conduct relations between the west and Muslim nations.
