American Jewish Professor: Israel is committing a holocaust in Gaza

25-01-2009 21:40

I think Israel, as a number of commentators pointed out, is becoming an insane state. And we have to be honest about that.

Maoist Leadership in Nepal Bans Strikes

25-01-2009 11:33

As a strike wave sweeps the country, the Maoist leadership agrees to banning strikes.

Since the Maoists emerged in the April 2008 Nepal elections as the largest party (though without an absolute majority) to lead the new coalition government, they have failed to heal existing divisions - in their own party, within the parliamentary political system and its ruling class - or within the intermingled social, caste and ethnic tensions across the wider society. In fact, all these divides have widened. And since November a strike wave has spread across the country.
