Reconciliation: The Facts About the Spiritual and Economic Poverty in South Africa

ReconciliationRECONCILIATION: FAKES, FRAUDS AND IMPOSTORS

Lo and behold, South Africa had scarcely lain her greatest son, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela to rest, after a ten days period of mourning, dignitaries who attended his funeral, politicians, important civil servants and people at grassroots level are again singing the same old song they had been singing in the rooms and corridors of the Union buildings, and in black and white townships since 1994. It is called “POVERTY THREATENS RECONCILIATION.” Well, if the song “KILL THE BOER, KILL THE FARMER” may no longer be sung in South Africa, a seemingly more reconciliatory song needs to be rehashed and sung again in a chorus of protests against poverty.

Please note that the report on “Kill the Boer, kill the farmer” appeared in Aljazeera on 12 September  2011. Less than a year later President Zuma, presumably unaware of judge Collin Lamont’s ruling on the infamous song or maybe in contempt of court, deliberately places him above the Constitutional Law of South Africa, sang the same song at the ANC Centenary Celebrations in Bloemfontein, South Africa in January 2012.

The Elders and the New World Order

The Elders and the New World Order

The Elders

Our Global Village

The Elders is founded on the idea that we now live in a ‘global village’, an increasingly interconnected, interdependent world. We believe in listening to everyone, both critical and supportive, and encourage debate about the issues we work on.

Whether you’re an activist, someone affected by conflict, or you want to share a message: use this space to hear from the people the Elders are working with, join the discussion and connect with other members of our community. —> http://theelders.org/global-village

How was the group formed?

The concept originates from a conversation between the entrepreneur Richard Branson and the musician Peter Gabriel. The idea they discussed was simple: many communities look to their elders for guidance, or to help resolve disputes. In an increasingly interdependent world – a ‘global village’ – could a small, dedicated group of individuals use their collective experience and influence to help tackle some of the most pressing problems facing the world today?

Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel took their idea of a group of ‘global elders’ to Nelson Mandela, who agreed to support it. With the help of Graça Machel and Desmond Tutu, Mandela set about bringing the Elders together and formally launched the group in Johannesburg, July 2007.  —> http://theelders.org/about

King Abdullah of Jordan’s ultimatum: peace now or it’s war next year

America is putting the final touches to a hugely ambitious peace plan for the Middle East, aimed at ending more than 60 years of conflict between Israel and the Arabs, according to Jordan’s King Abdullah, who is helping to bring the parties together.

The Obama Administration is pushing for a comprehensive peace agreement that would include settling Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians and its territorial disputes with Syria and Lebanon, King Abdullah II told The Times. Failure to reach agreement at this critical juncture would draw the world into a new Middle East war next year. “If we delay our peace negotiations, then there is going to be another conflict between Arabs or Muslims and Israel in the next 12-18 months,” the King said.

Details of the plan are likely to be thrashed out in a series of diplomatic moves this month. Chief among them is President Obama’s meeting with Binyamin Netanyahu, the right-wing Israeli Prime Minister, in Washington a week today. The initiative could form the centrepiece for Mr Obama’s much-anticipated address to the Muslim world in Cairo on June 4. A peace conference could then take place involving all the parties as early as July or August. Such an ambitious project has not been attempted since 1991, when George Bush senior’s Administration assembled all the parties for a peace conference in Madrid. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
