How the West’s Media Twisted the Taliban Video

Hameed Abdul Karim

There was something strange, something amiss you might say, about Taliban’s video showing the release of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. And that was the superimposition of the words ‘Don’ Come Back to Afghanistan Again’ which appeared once while Sgt. Bergdahl was seated in the back of the pickup truck and then again when the Blackhawk gunship is in the air bringing to mind the words ‘Hi Yo Silver Away!’ the Lone Ranger utters as he gallops away into sunset after accomplishing his many missions for the good of mankind.

Modi – A Magic Wand?

Hameed Abdul Karim

I was with an Indian HR guy a few days ago and quite naturally the topic of Narendra Modi’s massive victory crept into the conversation. This Indian Bhai was quite ecstatic in his praise for Modi. ‘Already the stock market has hit a new record high’ he gloated and I thought to myself ‘Right: the capitalists are already raking in the shekels while the poor are wondering whether they will get the toilets Modi promised them’. But courtesy prevented me from giving expression to my thoughts.

The other day I came across an article that appeared in The Island titled ‘Buddha Sasana Ministry Invasion is a Rehearsal for Regime Change’ and was horrified to find the writer had casually justified the arson attack on a shop in Aluthgama owned by Muslims by claiming that this had happened because a young Sinhala Buddhist boy had been raped by the owner inside the shop.

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.”

THE MIDDLE EAST: TWO STATE TRAP

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.
