Re: Book review: Coming Home by Charles (Kalev) Ehin - http://estonianworld.com/culture...
"A good shot at reviewing a story that had to be told about both a simple story of escape and survival and an essay about how complicated life was for people who had to make decisions in moments that would have years of consequences. The reviewer did an excellent job of keeping his emotions under control,as he told us the interesting points made in the story and reasons for giving a read. Good on you Mr. Tambur! And read the book to open your own story!" - Ned Hamson

Re: Turkey issues fatwa urging all Muslims with tattoos to remove or repent - http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News...
"The state and the wannabe Caliph should take care of their own foolishness and attacks on religion and let people in the 21 st century live their lives.They have no direct tie to God - the amazing thing is that God loves the abusers as much as those abused just for celebrating who they are in ways not understood by those who wish to turn clock back to early Ottoman Empire. In short - up yours and leave artistic people alone!" - Ned Hamson

A skin tag on my neck is particularly irritating. Keeps catching my hair which pulls it & hurts a lil bit. Miss the days of private insurance when my doc would just burn them off with a cauterizer thingy. They don't do that at MediCal accepting clinics. They tell me to cut it off with sterile scissors :-|

Re: France promotes regional framework for Mideast conflict - http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse...
"Getting more than a bit annoyed with politicians who need support at home, try to look good in solving someone else's problem and not the problems of their own people. Hollande should fix France, the Turkish leader should focus on restoring democracy in Turkey for those who feel shut out, and Israel's leader should just pack it in. Last time France had a big hand in "fixing" the Middle East they created a monster that still separates more people than it unites." - Ned Hamson

Re: Wild ducks linked to bird flu outbreak in Netherlands - http://www.farmersjournal.ie/...

Re: Infectious bird flu found in wild ducks - http://www.nltimes.nl/2014...
"Anything to blame anything but growing practises and trade in poultry worldwide. If wild birds were the chief means of influenza transmission - they'd all be dead by now! and us too. It is the conditions of growing, overcrowding, and trade - not wild birds that begin the problem." - Ned Hamson

Re: We’ll believe almost anything rather than believe our favorite male celebrities committed sexual violence - http://feministing.com/2014...
"Naw! Can't be right that no one else has said anything? Guy celebrities have been getting away with violence, rape, non-payment of child care, alimony, killing and maiming people in DUI incidents, and more for years. In face, they don't even have to be celebs, just guys. Think of the thousands upon thousands of beatings, rapes, and deaths excused cause it was just guys being guys and guys were the DAs and Judges, as well as police. Just try being human guys and if you get caught being inhumane - tough - take it like a human and don't expect anymore special guy treatment!" - Ned Hamson

Re: Turks increasingly sympathetic to Islamic State - http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse...
"The Ottoman Empire aligned itself with Germany and lost a war and their empire. It was not the only shining star of high culture supported by Islam. This is the 21st century and the need or usefulness for empires is gone except for those who simply want to impose their rule on others to overcome their fears and low self-image." - Ned Hamson

Re: Kaiser Nurses in California Plan to Strike Over Ebola - http://www.businessweek.com/news...
"That patent is for a test to determine if someone has Ebola - not for the disease Ebola. Ebola was first described in 1976 - if what you fear is true, then folks have been taking their sweet time to make money out of this. I have no trust of big pharma but this is a false trail." - Ned Hamson

The third intifada is here - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East - http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse...
“Temple Mount Faithful” members and right-wing activists in Israel maintain that Jews have the right to ascend to the Temple Mount, similar to the Muslim right to do so. Even if we assume that their claim is just and that Jews do indeed have the historic right to ascend and pray on the Mount as Muslims do, the choice is between a religiously motivated intifada, and distancing right-wing activists from the center of conflict — the Temple Mount. Perhaps in the past understandings could have been reached with the Palestinians to allow Jewish groups to ascend to the Mount and pray. But that was not accomplished. Solutions were not obtained, not even in the course of peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, talks that have collapsed in the meantime. What was not accomplished in the past through dialogue and understandings cannot, so it seems, be created now, when the earth in Jerusalem is burning under our feet and there is concern that a “second Al-Aqsa intifada” may well spill... - Ned Hamson

Ramallah's artistic uprising inspired by city archives - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East - http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse...
On a corner near Rashid al-Haddadin Square — named after the founder of Ramallah — passersby get the impression that a painting on display is none other than Picasso’s Guernica, which was inspired by the German and Italian shelling of the Basque country during the Spanish civil war. Palestinian caricaturist Mohammed Sabana and graffiti artist Hamza Abu Ayash protect their painting like a child they are afraid of losing in a crowd, proving that it is the Palestinian Guernica, as they describe it. - Ned Hamson

Canada's Ebola visa ban is dumb, xenophobic, and illegal - Vox - http://www.vox.com/2014...
Canada is a country built by and still composed mostly of immigrants. It's a country that prides itself on being a good global citizen. It's a country that lobbied against — and was economically scarred by — short-lived travel restrictions following the SARS outbreak of 2002-03. Now, Canada is one of only two developed countries to issue a visa ban for people from Ebola-stricken West Africa — a wrong-headed decision that is xenophobic, bad science, and against international law. Following Australia, the federal government's department of citizenship and immigration announced last week that it would no longer grant travel visas to Canada for residents and citizens of Ebola-affected countries, including Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. It's also halting the residency applications of folks from these countries. The restrictions don't actually apply to Canadian travelers — but only to West Africans themselves. - Ned Hamson
