Memorial Prose Poem

Anthony Marsella, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service

I write in memory of a tragic day in history that changed the destiny of the USA and the world. With the assassination of JFK, the path was open for presidential deceit and deception, for abuses of national purpose and moral authority. Say what you will, JFK was our nation's last hope for principled charismatic leadership capable of inspiring hope and sacrifice for higher purpose.

(Italiano) Il risveglio arabo-musulmano e USA/Israele

Johan Galtung | Centro Studi Sereno Regis –TRANSCEND Media Service

Ma credere che l'Islam tolleri il secolarismo imposto è incredibilmente ingenuo. C'è un risveglio musulmano. Tuttavia, ci sono molti islam, come ci sono i cristiani e gli ebraismi. Come reagiscono USA-Israele e quale sarebbe una reazione positiva alla loro reazione?
