ARAFAT, AYMAN, BASSEM, HABIB, HAMZA, IBRAHIM, JAMIL, KHALED, KHALIL, MIRIAM, MUSTAFA, NABIL, SAHAR, SAMAL, SAMIR, SULEIMAN, SUSAN, WALID and YASMIN comprise a microscopic section of the list of millions of children who have lost their lives in conflict zones. From Gaza, Iraq and Syria in Western Asia; to Central African Republic, Sudan and Nigeria in Africa; and Ukraine in Eastern Europe, children have been bombed, beheaded, fired at and slaughtered mercilessly like sheep for n...

As I walked down the normally tranquil Kensington High Street, I noticed something rather unusual. The street was no longer tranquil and quiet. Instead you could hear chanting, something along the lines of "1. 2. 3. 4. Occupation no more. 5. 6. 7. 8. Israel is a terror state." Now for your average shopper this can be quite surprising, but the message hundreds of thousands of Londoners were trying to get across is that what Israel is doing is wrong. The murder of innocent Palest...

Traumatised by the daily display on our news-screens I took it upon myself to do the only thing I knew I had the power to do, which is to voice my opinion. Last night, the video portraying a young boy lying lifeless on a hospital bed in Gaza, the doctors opening his limp lids to pupils fixed and dilated, was deeply disturbing. This image will forever be implanted in by mind and never forgotten, but we individuals can stop this in its footsteps. This is an article prompted by that i...

Children of Gaza strip must be asking their mothers,'Who are trying to kill us? Palestine? Israel? Egypt?' but simply the answer is 'Humans killing humans'. For just a stupid political reason, around 1800 people are already dead and more than 9500 are wounded. Israel is killing Palestinians but why don't they see that they are 'humans' more than just a 'Palestinian'. Why is Israel continuing its assault even after they know that innocent people are being killed? Just because Isra...

How can we just sit around and do nothing? America, do something! President Obama, take action! Formerly, I supported our President with blind hopes thinking that he would revolutionize the way the Untied States has approached foreign policy since the atrocities of the 1960s and beyond. However, much to my chagrin and dismay (also, on behalf of the many citizens in this country who agree with me), the United States has yet to lift a finger concerning the conflict in the Middle East...

My fathers and I I remember when the grass became a patriot on the sod and how growth was a midget in conflict. I remember when men couldn't feed and how wooden huts became a choice. I remember how the territory of slaves was carved from pain. I remember when my forefathers agreed to change the world. And how fate turned their hearts against each other. I remember when young girls were kidnapped, raped, and coerced for pleasure. And how it felt to have a sister. I remember the African pain and...

The Sunni-Shiite split happened c. 650 C.E. In the religion of Islam, it carries great political and theological weight. Historically, Islamic states (e.g. Arabia, Persia, Ottoman Empire, Mughal India, etc.) have always lent themselves to be theocratic. The first state leaders who emerged from the birth of Islam c. 600s CE were the Caliphs. Over the next one thousand years, the world would see various Sheikhs, Sultans and Khans all vie for power in the culturally flourishing part o...

JUBA, South Sudan 16, June 2014 – Every time I close my eyes, I can still see images of the gunmen shooting and killing people. It feels like it happened yesterday. I’m afraid of closing my eyes or going to sleep because I re-live those bad days. I have nightmares about what I saw and they make me scream at night. For a while, I thought I was the only one going through this, but sometimes I hear my brothers and sisters screaming too. The strange thing about these nightmares...

Man don't kill man, guns kill man! Its not a new thing in Nigeria to hear the sound of guns. People die by the hundreds daily and the world is looking. I am sure the world knows. The killing of some sects who want to take over the government of the people is also genocide. People are being killed daily and the world is watching, the world is watching us. Will the world leave us to die?
