I don't really like to upload this kind of photos but I was trying to visualize an image in my mind of today's world!

I am very optimistic person, I don't live in darkness; yet I don't like to skip the cruel reality!

Here is a list of the world's countries participating in conflicts with others (NOW)...

Algeria Angola Congo Eritrea Liberia Rawnda Sierra Leone Somalia Sudan Zimbabwe Afghanistan Indonesia Russia Kashmir India Pakistan Korea China Japan Bangladesh Myanmar Philippines Sri Lanka Uzbekistan Spain Bosnia Cyprus Kosovo Serbia Ireland Georgia Armenia Azerbaijan Chechnya Iran Iraq Israel Palestine Lebanon Nagorno Syria Yemen Turkey Venezuela Ethiopia UAE USA UK

During the world war 2, many countries didn't take a side, that's will include almost everyone listed above plus many unlisted others..
Those countries refused to participate in the war, they were referred to 3rd world countries..
Later the phrase "3rd world countries" was assigned to "underdeveloped countries"!
I just can't get it, how come when someone refused a war would be uncivilised?
I thought 3rd world countries should be today's civilised world while the (so called) 1st and 2nd world should be the underdeveloped ones.

The world already in a great mess but some people (so called civilised) are trying to make that mess greater..

Few days ago I was watching the news when they said that the planet Pluto was excluded from the solar system!
I know it's silly but I kinda felt sad just like losing a family member..
I've been told for 24 years that there are 9 (known) planets in the solar system, it's kinda weird to cut one off now.
Anyway that's not the point, but I mentioned that storey about Pluto because I rather to live a lone over there in the extremely cold weather than living on this sucky "warful" planet so called Earth!

Yeah I know I just invented the word "warful"!

Everybody should watch the movie "V for Vendetta"!

I guess no one got my point?
I'll just go to bed...Good nigth HUMANS!

Amid mounting evidence that Israel is using banned chemical and other weapons against the civilian population of Lebanon, including cluster bombs - a definitive indiscriminate weapon specifically designed to maximize civilian deaths - as well as white phosphorus, the UN reports that indiscriminate Israeli bombing has now forced three quarters of a million people from their homes. The phrase "ethnic cleansing" is beginning to be heard around the world, even as the US rushes missiles to Israel and Secretary of State Cuntoleeza Rice insists that it is "too early" to call for a ceasefire. The American press confirms that Israel's invasion and obliteration of all of Lebanon was a long-planned operation formulated in mid-2005, and which was simply awaiting a pretext for deployment. Meanwhile, Israel declares -in flat violation of international law prohibiting collective punishment - that for every rocket which enters Israel, it will randomly destroy 10 multi-story apartment complex buildings in South Beirut. The Red Cross reports numerous incidents of appaerntly deliberate Israeli targeting of relief personnel and Red Cross ambulances. In a move chillingly similar to the deliberate bombing of a UN peacekeeping compound in Qana Lebanon, a decade ago, yesterday, Israel deliberately targeted a United Nations outpost, murdering four UN peacekeepers.

This week a group of prominent world intellectuals, including Noam Chomsky, Eduardo Galeano, Harold Pinter, Howard Zinn, Arundhati Roy, Tariq Ali, et al, issued the following statement, reminding the world that the Israeli aggression against Lebanon is, as it always has been, not about security, but about the century-old Zionist determination to permanently erase Palestine as a political concept and Palestinians as a people.

July 19, 2006

The latest chapter of the conflict between Israel and Palestine began when Israeli forces abducted two civilians, a doctor and his brother, from Gaza. An incident scarcely reported anywhere, except in the Turkish press. The following day the Palestinians took an Israeli soldier prisoner - and proposed a negotiated exchange against prisoners taken by the Israelis - there are approximately 10,000 in Israeli jails.

That this "kidnapping" was considered an outrage, whereas the illegal military occupation of the West Bank and the systematic appropriation of its natural resources - most particularly that of water - by the Israeli Defence (!) Forces is considered a regrettable but realistic fact of life, is typical of the double standards repeatedly employed by the West in face of what has befallen the Palestinians, on the land alloted to them by international agreements, during the last seventy years.

Today outrage follows outrage; makeshift missiles cross sophisticated ones. The latter usually find their target situated where the disinherited and crowded poor live, waiting for what was once called Justice. Both categories of missile rip bodies apart horribly - who but field commanders can forget this for a moment?

Each provocation and counter-provocation is contested and preached over. But the subsequent arguments, accusations and vows, all serve as a distraction in order to divert world attention from a long-term military, economic and geographic practice whose political aim is nothing less than the liquidation of the Palestinian nation.

This has to be said loud and clear, for the practice, only half declared and often covert, is advancing fast these days, and, in our opinion, it must be unceasingly and eternally recognised for what it is and resisted.

Hizbullah's attacks stem from Israeli incursions into Lebanon
By Anders Strindberg

NEW YORK – As pundits and policymakers scramble to explain events in Lebanon, their conclusions are virtually unanimous: Hizbullah created this crisis. Israel is defending itself. The underlying problem is Arab extremism.

Sadly, this is pure analytical nonsense. Hizbullah's capture of two Israeli soldiers on July 12 was a direct result of Israel's silent but unrelenting aggression against Lebanon, which in turn is part of a six-decades long Arab-Israeli conflict.

Since its withdrawal of occupation forces from southern Lebanon in May 2000, Israel has violated the United Nations-monitored "blue line" on an almost daily basis, according to UN reports. Hizbullah's military doctrine, articulated in the early 1990s, states that it will fire Katyusha rockets into Israel only in response to Israeli attacks on Lebanese civilians or Hizbullah's leadership; this indeed has been the pattern.

In the process of its violations, Israel has terrorized the general population, destroyed private property, and killed numerous civilians. This past February, for instance, 15-year-old shepherd Yusuf Rahil was killed by unprovoked Israeli cross-border fire as he tended his flock in southern Lebanon. Israel has assassinated its enemies in the streets of Lebanese cities and continues to occupy Lebanon's Shebaa Farms area, while refusing to hand over the maps of mine fields that continue to kill and cripple civilians in southern Lebanon more than six years after the war supposedly ended. What peace did Hizbullah shatter?

Hizbullah's capture of the soldiers took place in the context of this ongoing conflict, which in turn is fundamentally shaped by realities in the Palestinian territories. To the vexation of Israel and its allies, Hizbullah - easily the most popular political movement in the Middle East - unflinchingly stands with the Palestinians.

Since June 25, when Palestinian fighters captured one Israeli soldier and demanded a prisoner exchange, Israel has killed more than 140 Palestinians. Like the Lebanese situation, that flare-up was detached from its wider context and was said to be "manufactured" by the enemies of Israel; more nonsense proffered in order to distract from the apparently unthinkable reality that it is the manner in which Israel was created, and the ideological premises that have sustained it for almost 60 years, that are the core of the entire Arab-Israeli conflict.

Once the Arabs had rejected the UN's right to give away their land and to force them to pay the price for European pogroms and the Holocaust, the creation of Israel in 1948 was made possible only by ethnic cleansing and annexation. This is historical fact and has been documented by Israeli historians, such as Benny Morris. Yet Israel continues to contend that it had nothing to do with the Palestinian exodus, and consequently has no moral duty to offer redress.

For six decades the Palestinian refugees have been refused their right to return home because they are of the wrong race. "Israel must remain a Jewish state," is an almost sacral mantra across the Western political spectrum. It means, in practice, that Israel is accorded the right to be an ethnocracy at the expense of the refugees and their descendants, now close to 5 million.

Is it not understandable that Israel's ethnic preoccupation profoundly offends not only Palestinians, but many of their Arab brethren? Yet rather than demanding that Israel acknowledge its foundational wrongs as a first step toward equality and coexistence, the Western world blithely insists that each and all must recognize Israel's right to exist at the Palestinians' expense.

Western discourse seems unable to accommodate a serious, as opposed to cosmetic concern for Palestinians' rights and liberties: The Palestinians are the Indians who refuse to live on the reservation; the Negroes who refuse to sit in the back of the bus.

By what moral right does anyone tell them to be realistic and get over themselves? That it is too much of a hassle to right the wrongs committed against them? That the front of the bus must remain ethnically pure? When they refuse to recognize their occupier and embrace their racial inferiority, when desperation and frustration causes them to turn to violence, and when neighbors and allies come to their aid - some for reasons of power politics, others out of idealism - we are astonished that they are all such fanatics and extremists.

The fundamental obstacle to understanding the Arab-Israeli conflict is that we have given up on asking what is right and wrong, instead asking what is "practical" and "realistic." Yet reality is that Israel is a profoundly racist state, the existence of which is buttressed by a seemingly endless succession of punitive measures, assassinations, and wars against its victims and their allies.

A realistic understanding of the conflict, therefore, is one that recognizes that the crux is not in this or that incident or policy, but in Israel's foundational and per- sistent refusal to recognize the humanity of its Palestinian victims. Neither Hizbullah nor Hamas are driven by a desire to "wipe out Jews," as is so often claimed, but by a fundamental sense of injustice that they will not allow to be forgotten.

These groups will continue to enjoy popular legitimacy because they fulfill the need for someone - anyone - to stand up for Arab rights. Israel cannot destroy this need by bombing power grids or rocket ramps. If Israel, like its former political ally South Africa, has the capacity to come to terms with principles of democracy and human rights and accept egalitarian multiracial coexistence within a single state for Jews and Arabs, then the foundation for resentment and resistance will have been removed. If Israel cannot bring itself to do so, then it will continue to be the vortex of regional violence.

Latifa & Latifa's official site supports Lebanon and launches "I BOYCOTT" campaign in the Arab world along with many other Arab celebrities such as the writer Ahlam Mustaghmani.

Latifa decided to postponed her album which it's was going to be released in July 2006. Composed by Lebanese musicians such as Ziad Al Rahbani, Marwan Khouri and Jean-Marie Reyachi.

Latifs suppose to be on a documentary on PBS American channel, she agreed to be on the channel under one rule and it's to be able to express her self with out any censorship; since her speech in the World Music Awards 2004 was censored when she said that her happiness will remain incomplete until Palestine and Iraq are freed. The democratic media of the USA montages that part off!

In the year 2005 Lebanese singer Elissa won the award, at the time Israel's newspaper felt that the Lebanese singers are threatening their security!
