Re: Danish imam calls Jews 'apes and pigs' in video - http://www.thelocal.dk/2014101...
"Huh? Hate comments about Muslims, Jews, Christian, Jains, Hindus, Wicca are all based on fear, unacceptable to me and should be unacceptable to most, if not all. It's sort of like calico cats not liking tuxedo cats - just does not make sense, because they are all cats." - Ned Hamson

Re: Gamergate has backfired spectacularly on its nincompoop perpetrators - The Week - http://theweek.com/article...
""nincompoop perpetrators" - so they were not haters or criminal for trying to ruin people and threaten them with death? Easy to see that you side with the nincompoop perps and not the victims." - Ned Hamson

"Not stupid, just smart enough to read how accepted Muslim scholars translate the Koran to see if some commenting here are telling the truth or if they have misunderstood the few for the many. Not bent of proving all Islam, Christianity, Hinduism are evil and their believers because some "followers" bend the language to serve their bigoted and hateful needs. I have been in Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Algeria, and Morocco researching political and religious thought and movement." - Ned Hamson

"Private - meaning an owned site not one from a not-for-profit. I have been reading the Koran for a long time - before 9-11. What it says, like what is in the Bible, Torah, and other religious texts has little to do with those who want to use religion as their excuse or basis for fear, hate, killing." - Ned Hamson

"What you quote does not say that all Jews are... And the link you offered is to a private site. I will check out further. Here is what I find - no reference to Jews. Surah 5. Al-Maida, Ayah 60 قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَٰلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ ۚ مَنْ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ Asad:Say: "Shall I tell you who, in the sight of God, deserves a yet worse retribution than these? They whom God has rejected and whom He has condemned, and whom He has turned into apes and swine because they worshipped the powers of evil: 77 these are yet worse in station, and farther astray from the right path [than the mockers]." 78 Malik:Ask them: "Should I tell you of those who will have even worse than this in retribution from Allah? They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have incurred His wrath; some of whom were turned into apes and pigs; who..." - Ned Hamson

"I have to wonder why other religious leaders of Islam do not drive these two and those like them from their ranks. They defame Islam, its believers and spit in the face of humanity whom is love by all the different views of God." - Ned Hamson

Re: Can Celebrities Be Real Feminists? - http://www.damemagazine.com/2014...
"Hmmm? Those who consider themselves serious thought leaders - and are - sometimes get upset with all the attention given to celebrities, whom the thought leader may consider as an amateur in the serious field who might take attention away from serious work. You are a 24/7 animal rights advocate and wonder at all the attention the latest star for animal rights gets. And the next day, you are seeking their support to help bring attention to your cause or raise money. A delicate balance but we do need each other's support and need to be supportive of our own - don't we?" - Ned Hamson

Re: Ebola death toll crosses 4,000 - http://www.aljazeera.com/news...
"I am aware of what you say - many others are not - Ebola scary and needs addressing but not as "get out of jail card" for drug companies who are looking for feel good points now but generally ignore "orphan" illnesses that don't kill enough people for them to make big profit." - Ned Hamson

Re: A Billion Tons of Food Wasted Yearly While Millions Still Go Hungry - http://www.ipsnews.net/2014...
"My mother used to tell me to finish what was on my plate because there were people starving in Armenia - she was thinking of when she was 6. I always thought and did not say - let's wrap it up and mail it to them then. Malnutrition and hunger are very real problems but saying we should not waste food or throw it away is a bit like my mother's plea to get me to eat things, I did not care for. Buying less processed food, is not going to mean more food for people in the Sudan, Somalia, or South Carolina. Asking restaurants and cafeteria's to send uneaten food to food banks - really? How are they going to keep the food fresh and how to distribute? Ending ethnic, political, racial, and religious discrimination would lead to more equitable distribution of jobs and food. Assisting farmers with better markets and technology will go a long way toward reducing waste there. And... more equitable distribution of land would..." - Ned Hamson

Re: Erdogan pushes religion in fight against drugs - http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse...
"Yes, of course! Smile. Saying yes to life, a healthy life, is what I do believe in. Advising others who are abusing themselves or tempted to do so to just say - no to temptation - is what does not work. Offering positive choices to say yes to, works much better, as well as helping people get to yes." - Ned Hamson

Re: Why One Public Health Expert Thinks Airport Ebola Screening Won't Work - http://www.npr.org/blogs...
"The need to fill air space with a meaningless and speculative report, is pretty much the same as government's reacting in ways that may do nothing more than reassure people, that we are trying to do something to protect ourselves. Maybe public, media and government representatives need to think again." - Ned Hamson

Re: Infected Spanish healthcare worker has no idea how she contracted Ebola in Madrid - http://www.upi.com/Top_New...
"And why is a photo of President Obama and Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy Brey used to illustrate a story about a Spanish nurse who has come down with Ebola? Are we to think the the President and the Prime Minister have something to do with her becoming ill?" - Ned Hamson

Israeli Military Arrest Large Numbers of Palestinian Children - SPIEGEL ONLINE - http://www.spiegel.de/interna...
Mahmood Bassim Ghanim, 14, relates his story from the sofa in his parents' house in Ya'abad, a village near the Palestinian city of Jenin. An air-conditioning unit, a point of pride for the family, blasts cold air into the room and the father's engineering diploma hangs above the sofa. Mahmood folds the handkerchief flat and smoothes it out. He has the face of a child, the body of an adolescent, and the large hands and feet of an adult. Mahmood was arrested twice in the space of two months. The first time he spent four days in jail; the second time he was beaten, interrogated and brought back home the next morning. On neither occasion did there seem to be any reason for his arrest. Perhaps the soldiers were bored. Maybe they made a mistake. - Ned Hamson

CDC - Whooping Cough Cases on the Rise | Latina Lista - http://latinalista.com/life...
Whooping cough used to be thought of as a disease of the past, but it’s making a comeback – and 2014 is on track to be a busy year! There are many factors contributing to the current resurgence of whooping cough. The best protection is to get vaccinated against it. While offering protection, the whooping cough vaccines used now do not protect people for as long as healthcare professionals would like. Additionally, doctors are more aware that whooping cough is still around and affecting communities. This raised awareness, along with better tests to diagnose patients, has contributed to an increase in the number of whooping cough cases being diagnosed and reported. - Ned Hamson
