The present on-going 68th UN General Assembly offers another dimension to world politics vis-à-vis global terrorism and peace. There is an astonishing speech/revelation from Brazilian president, her Iranian counterpart among others. Even Bolivian president pressed for relocating the UN headquarters from New York, He said:
"No guaranteed visas, no guaranteed overflights. We feel threatened, bullied and blackmailed over visas," he said, adding that the United States "has never ratified treaties related to human rights." (http://www.presstv.com/detail/2013/09/26/326045/move-un-out-of-us-morales-says/)
Yet, none of the western media fully covered these speeches. Even, Venezuela President cancelled his trip to the UN Assembly because of threat of “terrorism” in US (http://www.presstv.com/detail/2013/09/26/326068/venezuelas-maduro-drops-un-trip/). The question is: Why are the Latin American countries feel “unsafe” with US? Why US NSA designates Brazil has a country harboring “terrorists” in her domain and cite the excuse as an avenue to break into their cyber sovereignty? Why is it that within the couple of few decades US has procured several wars in other countries of the world than any other country in history of humanity? Why are American citizens recently protested of “lies” from western-controlled media like CNN, BBC etc? Why is US spying on Indian diplomat in New York? Why is US spying on everyone living in US?
Again, US president gave a speech at UN Assembly on Tuesday and referred to his country as “exceptional” among others to venture into other countries’ sovereignty and also claimed that he will protect his country’s “interest” in Middle East and North America even if it will require “use of military force” (Available on Voice of Russia News). I also present the following links from Voice of Russia News in order to guide your view on world politics and global affairs.
I will like to encourage you to listen to news from both western (CNN, BBC) and non-western (Voice of Russia, presstv.com) media in order to equip you with balanced news on global affairs.
In the mean time, I will enjoin you to reflect on this narration of the Prophet Muhammed (SAW): “ In an authentic narration, the Prophet (SAW) told the followers that they should assist their fellow Muslims who are oppressors and who are being oppressed. A follower stood up and told the Prophet (SAW) that we understood those Muslims who are being oppressed for us to come to their aid, how do we assist the oppressors? The Prophet (SAW) replied and said that PREVENT him from oppressing others”.
Rationally and logically, classical and contemporary scholars and historians have told us that the Prophet (SAW) never fought offensive wars; rather he fought in defense of his ideology. While testifying to the sublimity of the Prophet (SAW), Mahatma Gandhi, made a statement published in 'Young India,' 1924 that “I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind.... I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life”. Once again, thank you and I will like to share my Friday view with you tagged “TGIF”.
