Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism. Sign and Join this petition

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

World History:

The Last Latin Dinosaur

World People

    MIAMI - Here in the world’s second largest Cuban city after Havana, the fiercely anti-Castro Cuban exile community is eagerly anticipating the death of their bete noire, Cuba’s `Maximo leader,’
    Eric Margolis
    Fidel Castro. He just turned 80 but was too ill to attend his gala birthday bash.

    The death last week of Chile’s former dictator,

    By Eric Margolis

    Gen. Augusto Pinochet, leaves the gravely ailing Castro as Latin America’s last surviving Cold War dinosaur. The widely demonized Pinochet was the bete noire of leftists everywhere, the dictator they loved to hate. However, Pinochet left Chile with a democratic government and Latin America’s most vibrant economy. By contrast, Fidel Castro will leave behind a dreary, threadbare totalitarian state that has become a land that time forgot.

    Gen. Pinochet was condemned as a brutal tyrant for killing some 2,300 leftists and jailing thousands more. His brutal tactics occurred during a time of virtual civil war when Latin Marxists were waging a campaign of assassinations, murders and kidnappings.

How the Left Undermined National Security Before 9/11

USA History
    Front Page Magazine | September 11, 2006

    By David Horowitz

    (The following article by David Horowitz first appeared in our March 24, 2004, issue. An updated version appeared last September 11. It has been further updated to reflect information that has come to light since then. With last night's premiere of the ABC-TV movie "The Path to 9/11," the truth impact of the Left's policies in bringing about the nation's worst terrorist attack is finally coming to light. -- The Editors)
    New York City - September 11,2001
    “While the nation was having a good laugh at the expense of Florida’s hanging chads and butterfly ballots, Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi were there, in Florida, learning to drive commercial jetliners [and ram them into the World Trade Center towers]. It will take a novelist to paint that broad canvas properly. It will take some deep political thinking to understand how the lackadaisical attitude toward government and the world helped leave the country so unready for the horror that Atta and Shehhi were preparing.” — Michael Oreskes, New York Times, October 21, 2001.

    THE SEPTEMBER 11 ATTACKS on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center marked the end of one American era and the beginning of another. As did Pearl Harbor, the September tragedy awakened Americans from insular slumbers and made them aware of a world they could not afford to ignore. Like Franklin Roosevelt, George W. Bush condemned the attacks as acts of war, and mobilized a nation to action. It was a sharp departure from the policy of his predecessor, Bill Clinton, who in characteristic self-absorption had downgraded a series of similar assaults—including one on the World Trade Center itself—officially regarding them as criminal matters that involved individuals alone.

History of the FIFA World Cup

World History

    The World Cup is the top event of the world’s most popular sport. Of similar magnitude, only the Olympic Games are comparable with a soccer World Cup.

    No other sporting event captures the world's imagination like the FIFA World Cup. Ever since the first tentative competition in Uruguay in 1930,
    World Cup Trophy
    FIFA's (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) flagship has constantly grown in popularity and prestige.

    A group of visionary French football administrators, led in the 1920s by the innovative Jules Rimet, are credited with the original idea of bringing the world's strongest national football teams together to compete for the title of World Champions. The original gold trophy bore Jules Rimet's name and was contested three times in the 1930s, before the Second World War put a 12-year stop to the competition.

    When it resumed, the FIFA World Cup rapidly advanced to its undisputed status as the greatest single sporting event of the modern world. Held since 1958 alternately in Europe and the Americas, the World Cup broke new ground with the Executive Committee's decision in May 1996 to select Korea and Japan as co-hosts for the 2002 edition.

    Since 1930, the 16 tournaments have seen only seven different winners. However, the FIFA World Cup has also been punctuated by dramatic upsets that have helped create footballing history - the United States defeating England in 1950, North Korea's defeat of Italy in 1966, Cameroon's emergence in the 1980s and their opening match defeat of the Argentinean cup-holders in 1990....

World History:

Pol Pot - the most aggressive murderer in the world

WORLD

    For most of us, zebras are animals with black stripes but the truth is that the animals are black, with white stripes. Similarly, Pol Pot was convinced
    Pol Pot's victims
    that he was working towards a prosperous Cambodia. But his farce turned into a nightmare for those who bore the brunt of his atrocities. His whimsical escapades made him one of the most aggressive murderers in the world.

    His vision of Cambodia now known as Kampuchea was based on utopian agrarian society that had been influenced by Maoist Communism. To achieve his dream he massacred all those who stood in his path. He disintegrated the urban society, forcing the Cambodian city populace to evacuate their homes and move to rural areas. His method of bridging the economic gap in Cambodia by enforcing a Marxist regime was indeed ruthless.

    During his four-year regime, the Cambodians led a nightmarish life of forced exodus, torture, imprisonment, overwork, starvation and execution. Whatever his intentions, the truth is that his name is synonymous with the Khmer Rouge guerillas and genocide. This sadist established a name for himself as the ideological villain who committed mass murder with a limitless capacity for human slaughter. He carried on subversive activities for 10 years against the Vietnam government, smuggled gems and timber from Thailand supporting the cause of the guerillas. Cambodia’s endangered wildlife was also bartered to China in return for arms.

Teutonic Order - The Hospitaliers

World History acl writes "
    The Teutonic Order (usually, hospitale sancte Marie Theutonicorum Jerosolimitanum - the Hospital of St. Mary of the Germans of Jerusalem or der orden des Düschen huses - the order of the German houses, in the sources) was one of the three major knightly or military orders that originated and evolved during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

    The Templars and Hospitallers are the other major orders.
    The Castle of Mariennburg in today Poland

    The military orders were "true orders" of the Roman church governed by regulations similar to those governing monks, generally variants of the Benedictine or Augustinian Rules. For most purposes, they were technically answerable only to the pope. They did have some feudal responsibilities to lay and other clerical entities as dictated by circumstances of place and time. Large numbers of knights became monks but often were found in military fortifications rather than monasteries. The members of most orders took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience."

Holy Grail

World History acl writes "
    In Christian mythology, the Holy Grail was the dish, plate, cup or vessel that caught Jesus' blood during his crucifixion. It was said to have the power to heal all wounds. A theme joined to the Christianised Arthurian mythos relates to the quest for the Holy Grail.
    Imaginary view of Holy Grail

    The legend may be a combination of genuine Christian lore with a Celtic myth of a cauldron endowed with special powers. Whether graal is Celtic or Old French, it never refers to any cup or bowl but this. Though some Christian revisionists insist that the Holy Grail is not to be confused with the Holy Chalice, the vessel which Jesus used at the Last Supper to serve the wine, this has been the historical practice; various vessels have been put forward as the Last Supper chalice. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, it was only after the cycle of Grail romances was well established, identifying the cup of the Last Supper with the Grail that late medieval writers came up with a false etymology from the fact that in Old French, san grial means "Holy Grail" and sang rial means "royal blood".

    The quake damaged areas of six northern districts of the North Western Frontier Province, and five districts of Azad of Jammu and Kashmir, including Muzaffarabad, the chief city and capital of Azad Kashmir, which is administered by Pakistan.

The First Day of Holy Month of Ramadan

WORLD
    October, 4, 2005
    The holy month of Ramadan for the Hijra year 1426 starts in most of the Arab states and Islamic
    Thousands of muslim women pray in Jakarta, Indonesia Mosque
    countries today, Tuesday, the 4th of October, 2005.

    The Sharia council and religious commissions in Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Libya and Sudan announced the beginning of the fasting month today, Tuesday.

    Certain countries, including Qatar were careful to unify the beginning of this holy month with other Islamic countries and this is to follow the steps of the neighboring states, while other countries like Oman, Turkey and Yemen cling to the result of the Sharia vision and decided that today ( Tuesday is to complete the Hijra month of Shaaban because the Hilal ( crescent moon) was not seen.
