The disputed islands between China and Japan which were always chinese.

RAEL’S COMMENT: the disturbing truth about the disputed islands between China and Japan which were always chinese.

 

The territorial dispute over the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands between China and Japan is once again disrupting regional security in East Asia. It hasn’t always been like this. How did the situation become so sensitive?

China and Japan have come a long way since they normalised diplomatic relations 40 years ago. Bilateral trade now exceeds US$300 billion annually. Every day, dozens of flights travel between multiple destinations in Japan and China, ferrying tourists and businesspeople across the East China Sea. China has opened six consulates general in different parts of Japan, highlighting the intensity of bilateral contacts.

This success was made possible because Japan and China decided to shelve their dispute over the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands back in the 1970s. Over the past 40 years, there have been all kinds of ‘incidents’ related to the island dispute, but the two countries have always handled them in a relatively cool-headed way. Their attitudes meant that no ‘incident’ developed into a major crisis.

Half of world’s animals have disappeared since 1970

RAEL’S COMMENT: destroying Elohim’s beautiful creation…

 

Half of the animals in the world have disappeared since 1970 because of uncontrollable human expansion, shocking new figures have shown.

A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years.

And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.

Almost the entire decline is down to human activity, through habitat loss, deforestation, climate change, over-fishing and hunting.

Anyone born in in 1970 or before would have lived in a world teeming with animals compared to life today.

In Britain, the turtle dove has declined by 95 per cent, while seals, toads, red squirrels, moths, dormice, hedgehogs and hares are also suffering.

Opinion: Law and war will not beat jihad

RAEL’S COMMENT: very good analysis: violence and war never solve anything and create more of it in return.

 

London (CNN) — In recent months, much ink has been spilt exploring why some young British Muslims abandon a comfortable life in the UK to join one of the most brutal and blood-thirsty terrorist groups in recent history, namely the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Sadly, much of this commentary has struggled to move beyond clichés that revolve around hate preachers and extremist websites.

In order to arrive at a more nuanced understanding of why a group like ISIS is able to attract hundreds of young British Muslims, we must examine a wide range of factors that contribute towards creating a ISIS narrative that has resonance and appeal.

INDIA’S MODI CALL FOR REFORMS IN SPEECH TO UN

RAEL’S COMMENT:  he is absolutely right ! How can India with 1.2 billion citizens not be in the permanent security council while dwarf countries like France and UK with both around 65 millions inhabitants are ? That s 20 times less people !!! The only explanation is western Imperialism and colonialism ! Totally unacceptable as well as the Christian calendar used by the UN. If they don’t change it all non western nations should quit the UN and create a more democratic organization where each country would have a vote proportional to their population, if democracy has any value, and a non religious calendar.

 

Narendra Modi has used his first speech to the UN as India’s prime minister to renew his country’s call for reform of the Security Council.

UN institutions which reflected the imperatives of the 20th Century will not be effective in the 21st and should become more “participative”, he argued.

India has long lobbied for a permanent seat on the Security Council.

Mr Modi also said he wants peace talks with Pakistan but insisted it must create an “appropriate atmosphere”.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars against each other since independence in 1947, two of them over the disputed territory of Kashmir.Read More

Presentation on Paradism at the University of Toronto

On September 27, the concept of Paradism was presented at the University of Toronto. Many of the participants who joined the conference was due to the posters that had been placed on campus.

According to Patrick Rhein, the leader of the Raelian Movement for the City of Toronto and also the speaker at the event, mentioned that  “by the amount of questions asked it was extremely evident that the audience was totally captivated by the concept of Paradism”. Two main domains had been addressed, robotics and 3D printing. “We have described various applications of biotechnology, from personal use to industrial use as well as how to change our mindset to create a new reality, and save our planet”, mentioned Rhein. Mark Proulx, a robotics engineer with over 20 years experience, has also demonstrated that it would be possible to implement Paradism quickly if politicians, scientists and citizens would join together to achieve it.

More conferences of this kind will be held across Canada to show the public how Paradism could make our world a paradise where work and money would no longer exist.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addresses the 69th United Nations General Assembly at the U.N. headquarters in New York September 27, 2014.

RAEL’S COMMENT:  time to dismantle the United Nations Organization which is a puppet of western neo colonialism and imperialism.

 

The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA.

“The US-led Western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights in individual countries, is acting in the international arena from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the UN Charter and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad,” Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday.

The Russian foreign minister elaborated that there was an “increasingly obvious contradiction between the need for collective action by partners to produce proper responses to common challenges and some countries’ drive for dominance and revival of the archaic bloc mentality based on barrack-like discipline and flawed ‘us and them’ logic”.

Raelians urge Canadian government to adopt new system

A free presentation will be held at the University of Toronto, at O.I.S.E. located at 252 Bloor Street West, Room 2281, on September 25th at 7:30 PM

Toronto, September 23rd, 2014 – Following the increasing global economic crises, social and economic inequality and the violence which arises from these issues, Raelians are introducing a new socioeconomic system to the Canadian media and governments called “Paradism”, which they say would solve all these problems and more within a very short time.

Raelian spokesperson Patrick Rhein explained the concept: “Our world is paralyzed by profit. This creates inequality among people. Rich get richer and poor get poorer. Tensions are rising, there are more fights over resources, people are starving – or if they are lucky, they are working their whole lives many hours a week just in order to eat. Paradism will solve all these things and more. Paradism is communism without its drawbacks. There is no proletariat, no money and no production for profit. Instead of ‘from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,’ Paradism will provide ‘abundance for all’ and it will do it indefinitely. Thanks to Paradism, we can all live in a world without work or money.“

International Day of Peace: Let’s meditate one minute for peace!

On September 21, the Raelians of Canada supported the “International Day of Peace” from coast to coast, by integrating the action “Meditate with us One minute for Peace” launched two years  ago by Rael.

For this occasion, about fifty Raelians across Quebec rallied for a peaceful march all along the busiest street in downtown Montreal. During the march, peace songs resounded in the city, interspersed with moments of meditation directly on the street. “The event ended with a “One minute meditation for peace” in a park where we previously invited people by holding out an invitation card”, explained Melove, organizer of the march.

“In Toronto, we were in High Park to guide a global meditation for peace, synchronized with various other groups like Unify,” said Patrick Rheins. In this natural woodland in the middle of the largest city of Canada, a Raelian Guide, Diane Brisebois conducted a wonderful meditation with images that persisted in the minds of participants.Read More
