Member and observer countries of Non-Aligned Movement plus Russia are in blue.
Exactly two years ago, I started this blog with a post about A Stateless War which discussed an upcoming conflict of “The military industrial complex against the anonymous cloud, with an ignorant populace as the prize.” That conflict is largely behind us: few in the world are as ignorant as they were two years ago, and we are beyond the point where information alone can correct the social and political disasters we see around us.
Based on our current still entirely alterable trajectory, by the end of 2012 it will be apparent that we are in a new war, this time involving states. World War III will do as a name, or we can call it the Military States against the Resource States. Of course that sounds like something we’ve been in for decades; the difference is it…

Conforme prometemos em nossa última viagem a Munique, hoje visitaremos a cidade de Dortmund. Embarque conosco!
Dortmund e seus habitantes foram marcados pelo trabalho duro. A reputação de Dortmund foi levada a todo o mundo pelo aço, o carvão e a cerveja. Hoje, porém, não há mais mineiros no subsolo e os fornos há muito ficaram frios. Mesmo assim, a lembrança dos velhos tempos permanece viva e os monumentos industriais de antigamente desempenham novos papéis: tornaram-se monumentos históricos, museus e palcos, ao mesmo tempo.
O desenvolvimento de Dortmund foi marcado pela indústria siderúrgica, mas a cidade conseguiu superar isso há muito tempo, tanto na economia quanto no lazer e na cultura. O catalisador da nova Dortmund é a cultura, que tornou a cidade sinônimo de música, novas formas de vida e de fomento à arte e à criatividade. Isso ficou evidente no brilhante desempenho que a cidade…

Given his background, what American Jewish leader Rabbi Henry Siegman has to say about Israel’s founding in 1948 through the current assault on Gaza may surprise you. From 1978 to 1994, Siegman served as executive director of the American Jewish Congress, long described as one of the nation’s “big three” Jewish organizations along with the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League. Born in Germany three years before the Nazis came to power in 1933, Siegman’s family eventually moved to the United States. His father was a leader of the European Zionist movement that pushed for the creation of a Jewish state. In New York, Siegman studied the religion and was ordained as an Orthodox rabbi by Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, later becoming head of the Synagogue Council of America. After his time at the American Jewish Congress, Siegman became a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He now serves as president of the U.S./Middle East Project. In the first of our two-part interview, Siegman discusses the assault on Gaza, the myths surrounding Israel’s founding in 1948, and his own background as a German-Jewish refugee who fled Nazi occupation to later become a leading American Jewish voice and now vocal critic of Israel’s policies in the Occupied Territories.
“When one thinks that this is what is necessary for Israel to survive, that the Zionist dream is based on the repeated slaughter of innocents on a scale that we’re watching these days on television, that is really a profound, profound crisis — and should be a profound crisis in the thinking of all of us who were committed to the establishment of the state and to its success,” Siegman says. Responding to Israel’s U.S.-backed claim that its assault on Gaza is necessary because no country would tolerate the rocket fire from militants in Gaza, Siegman says: “What undermines this principle is that no country and no people would live the way that Gazans have been made to live. … The question of the morality of Israel’s action depends, in the first instance, on the question, couldn’t Israel be doing something [to prevent] this disaster that is playing out now, in terms of the destruction of human life? Couldn’t they have done something that did not require that cost? And the answer is, sure, they could have ended the occupation.”
