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.

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

Declan Ganley: Ireland's Mysterious Mr. No

World People
    Declan J. Ganley is the Boss of "Anglo Adriatic Investment Fund" in Tirana. This fund has been created in Albania since 1995 with a total of over 45,000 Albanian shareholders and the value of 120 Million USD. The activities of this Fund are still on hold and waiting for a "green light" from Albanian Government to re-enter in the business.

    Declan Ganley - a successful entrepreneur, is leading the No campaign
    The campaign against the Lisbon Treaty in Ireland is buoyant, thanks in large part to the zeal of Declan Ganley. But the question remains: who is bankrolling him ?

    By David McKittrick - The Independent

    Outside Dublin's Croke Park traders were selling hats, scarves and T-shirts to the thousands of fans on their way in to watch Dublin play Louth at Gaelic football. A well-dressed, well-groomed highly articulate man with an English accent was on a rather different selling mission, handing out, not sporting paraphernalia, but copies of the Lisbon Treaty on Europe's future.

    The man, Declan Ganley, should be a member of Ireland's elite establishment: he is after all a millionaire, living in a mansion in Galway and owning a Rolls-Royce, a Merc and a helicopter. Yet the establishment is intensely fearful of him, because of the highly effective role he has played in persuading Irish voters to reject the Lisbon Treaty and send the European Union back to the drawing board.

    They worry in Brussels too, apprehensive that an anti-Lisbon vote would deliver a huge setback to the entire European project.

    While all of Ireland's major political parties are urging the electorate to turn out and support the Treaty in this Thursday's referendum, 39-year-old Mr Ganley has been at the centre of the campaign against the document.

An Anticompetitive Europe Must Not Rise

World Economy
    Libertas Institute founder Declan Ganley says politicians who coddle elites and entrenched interests risk stifling Europe's enormous potential.

    Declan Ganley
    By Declan Ganley - is the chairman and chief executive of Rivada Networks, a member of the board of Europe's 500 Entrepreneurs for Growth, and founder of the Libertas Institute, a pan-European think tank. He resides in County Galway, Ireland

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who offered the promise of challenging vested interests, has now reverted to the status quo of European elites from whence he came. At the recent European Union summit, he proposed slashing from the new European Constitution (which has been deliberately mislabeled a "reform treaty") its commitment to "free and undistorted competition."

    This is one of the few components of the Constitution that was clear and unambiguous, and which has been included in every version since the founding Treaty of Rome in 1957. The removal of the competition clause raises grave questions about the EU's ability to take on monopolies, pursue antitrust measures, and tackle so-called "national champions"—the incumbent cartels much beloved of Sarkozy's predecessor (and manifested in his own case by the bailout of Alstom during his tenure as a deficit-increasing Finance Minister).

James Blunt - You're beautiful

    It seems as though James Blunt has suddenly burst onto the music scene with his haunting melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics but, as he explains, it's been a long road getting here, and it included a detour via Kosovo.

    "It's all downhill after 25" - so the saying goes. Or is it? By the age of 25, Captain James Hillier-Blount
    had led the advance of 30,000 British troops into Kosovo.

    Three years on, the soldier who put down his gun for a guitar now finds himself a singer/songwriter performing to 30,000 people, along with a critically acclaimed album in the bag, and Carrie Fisher among his good friends.

    Mid way through a sold-out residency in London, discovered the extraordinary story of one of 2005's bright prospects...

    "I saw my boss who was out with me in Kosovo last week. He just stood there shaking his head and said I looked ridiculous."

    James Blunt is on impeccably polite and candid form. A boarding education at the Harrow school would of course entail such manners and courtesy. And if not, daily bollockings from his drill sergeant at the prestigious Sandhurst army academy effectively instilled it.

Goodbye my lover, Goodbye my friend

    Read inside : Goodbye my Lover Lirics by James Blunt

    He is signed to Linda Perry's American label Custard, and became the first British artist to top the American singles chart in nearly a decade when his song "You're Beautiful" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006. The last British artist to do so had been Elton John in 1997.

Muslims Condemn Pope’s Remarks on Islam

World People
    New York Times

    ROME, Sept. 14 — As Pope Benedict XVI arrived back home from Germany, Muslim leaders on Thursday strongly criticized a speech he had given using unflattering language about Islam.

    Ethem Bey Mosque(right) - Tirana, the only place in the world where mosques and churches are side by side
    Some of the strongest words came from Turkey, possibly putting in jeopardy Benedict’s plan to visit there in November.

    “I do not think any good will come from the visit to the Muslim world of a person who has such ideas about Islam’s prophet,” Ali Bardakoglu, a cleric and chief of the Turkish government’s directorate of religious affairs, said in a television interview there. “He should first of all replace the grudge in his heart with moral values and respect for the other.”

    Muslim leaders in Pakistan, Morocco and Kuwait, in addition to some in Germany and France, were also critical, with many demanding an apology or clarification. The extent of anger about the speech may become clearer on Friday, the Muslim day of prayer, in which grievances are often vented publicly.

    As the criticisms gathered force, the Vatican worked quickly to snuff out a potentially damaging confrontation with Muslims. It issued a statement saying the Roman Catholic Church sought to “cultivate an attitude of respect and dialogue toward other religions and cultures, and obviously also toward Islam.”

What is 'Islamo fascism' ?

World People
    "Islamic fascists" -- used by President George W. Bush for the conspirators in the alleged trans-Atlantic airline bombing plot -- and references by other prominent figures to "Islamofascism," have been met by protests from Muslims who say the term is an insult to their religion.

    Muslim Revolts

    By Stephen Schwartz - Executive Director of the Center for Islamic Pluralism -

    The meaning and origin of the concept, as well as the legitimacy of complaints about it, have become relevant -- perhaps urgently so.

    I admit to a lack of modesty or neutrality about this discussion, since I was, as I will explain, the first Westerner to use the neologism in this context.

    In my analysis, as originally put in print directly after the horror of September 11, 2001, Islamofascism refers to use of the faith of Islam as a cover for totalitarian ideology. This radical phenomenon is embodied among Sunni Muslims today by such fundamentalists as the Saudi-financed Wahhabis, the Pakistani jihadists known as Jama'atis, and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. In the ranks of Shia Muslims, it is exemplified by Hezbollah in Lebanon and the clique around President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran.

Castro's health crisis could have various causes

World People


    By Patricia Reaney

    LONDON, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Cuban President Fidel Castro's intestinal crisis could have been caused by
    Fidel Castro
    a number of conditions but any type of abdominal surgery in a man nearing 80 is serious, British surgeons said on Tuesday.

    The bearded revolutionary leader who turns 80 later this month handed over power temporarily to his younger brother following complicated surgery for intestinal bleeding.

    In a statement read on television by Castro's personal aide, the Cuban leader said he had overexerted himself during a recent trip to Argentina but he did not elaborate on what caused the intestinal crisis or where the bleeding originated.

    Robert Johnson, a retired transplant and vascular surgeon from Manchester Royal Infirmary in England, said if the sustained bleeding was from the upper intestinal tract Castro may have suffered from a duodenal ulcer.

    "That could cause catastrophic haemorrhage and require emergency and sometimes quite complicated surgery. That is one possibility and it is the simplest and most obvious possibility," Johnson said in an interview.
