MUHAMMAD HAQUE POLITICAL POETRY on the abuses of faith and belief

27-12-2005 03:54

Those who held the most power and used it in like measure in the world during the past twelve months also invoked a strongly displayed and powerfully communicated allegiance to religious faith and even belief in God. They used peoples’ ordinary faith in God and religion to incite fear and alarm as tactic in the overall strategy to make people accept rules that they would otherwise reject.

Represion policial
In the last three days the Mapuche Community ‘Juan Paillalef’ was confronted with harsh police violence. The confrontations started during a peaceful act of protest by the Mapuche Community against illegal road constructions through several Mapuche lands.

25-12-2005 05:32

Bush is furious that patriot/s who still hold the values and laws of the USA sacrosanct, leaked the story of illegal bugging and surveillance to the media. The American Fuhrer’s indignation equals that of his historical Nazi counterpart. How dare someone expose the ‘commander and chief’ for the criminal that he really is!
