Of Holocaust Memory Merchants and Selected History

Hameed Abdul Karim

‘We are the victims of the victims’ Edward Said

Kumari’s article titled ‘Holocaust memorial and other memorials’ (Ceylon Today Sat. 1 February, 2014)  poignantly reminds us all of how cruel Christian Europe was to the Jews  during World Word 11 and how the Nazis under Adolf Hitler committed one of the worst crimes against humanity ever recorded in history.

Israel Persecutes Christians in Palestine
Hameed Abdul Karim

“We  as  Palestinians  had  not  been  responsible  for  the  suffering  of  the  Jews  in  Europe,  yet  we  were  the  ones  who  were  chased  out  of  our  land  and  made  to  suffer  so  the  world  could  soothe  its  conscience  and  pretend  to  repair  the  evil  done  against  the  Jews.”   
-         Archbishop Elias Chacour

THE MIDDLE EAST: TWO STATE TRAP




Thursday 22nd May, 2008


The Middle East: two state trap

by Hameed Abdul Karim

This might sound strange. But ever since 'peace' talks began between the Palestinians and the Israelis, the Jewish state has built more settlements on land stolen from the Palestinians and has continued its campaign to kill as many Palestinians as it can. Annapolis is a recent reminder that proves the point. Even before the Palestinian peace negotiators could creep back into their refugee camps, the Zionist state of Israel announced it was going to build three hundred more units in occupied Palestine. With this announcement Israel's real intentions - or its ulterior motives - in peace dealing lay bare for the whole world to see.

On Animal Sacrifice, Leather Products, Liquor and Casinos 
Hameed Abdul Karim

What instantly came to my mind when I read Shenali Waduge’s article on animal sacrifice was a scene from an old movie where we had the fascist Adolf Hitler furiously slamming his desk with his fist, his face  as hideously contorted as you can imagine, saying ‘It is NOT right’.

THE GENERAL'S SON SPEAKS OUT

The General’s Son Speaks Out

Hameed Abdul Karim

He is a story of an atrocity and a crime against humanity.

‘The unit commander ordered everyone out of their homes.  Then he sent the women and children under 13 years of age back into their homes. The others he brought to another part of the camp, where the soldiers lined them up against a wall and shot them. Next the officer went and shot each one again in the head, more than 30 of them, including a 13-year-old boy and an 86-year-old man. Then he had the bulldozer run over the bodies until they were unrecognizable’.

WAS IT LASKAR-E-TAIBA OR.............?

Was it Lashkar-e-Taiba or………?

Hameed Abdul Karim

Dinouk Colombage in his interesting column ‘Global Perspective’ in ‘Ceylon Today’ (Wednesday 25 September 2013) says that it was the ‘Pakistan based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba that carried out the Mumbai attack’ dubbed as India’s 9-11. Whilst nobody in his or her right mind will ever condone any attack of terror whether big or small, it must be said that Mumbai attack is fraught with mysteries and contradictions.
