Any building, wall or railing will look good with a fresh coat of paint irrespective of its colour. Politics of blue and white vs. red aside, a city looks bright with freshly painted structures. Hope Kolkata will also focus on planting trees, wherever possible, perhaps with the help of the local communities for maintenance. Shortage of funding to make small changes for the beautification of a city is not a hurdle, but the indifference of its residents to make their city look good is a concern. With all her limitations as a politician, Mamata Banerjee should be appreciated at least for her efforts to improve the looks of an old and neglected metropolis.

This kind of meaningless rubbish comes from well off comfortably placed Indians.

Meanwhile, in yet another Muslim-majority part of the world, we see the same pattern that we have seen everywhere else where Muslims are a majority. The only new twist is that they are now harvesting kaffirs for their body parts.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/29/senior-political-figures-kosovo-prosecution-crimes-humanity

"...Leading political figures in Kosovo face indictment by a special EU court for crimes against humanity, including killings, abductions, sexual violence and other abuses of Serb and Roma minorities, according to the chief prosecutor leading a three-year special investigation (pdf)....

The crimes include "unlawful killings, abductions, enforced disappearances, illegal detentions in camps in Kosovo and Albania, sexual violence, other forms of inhumane treatment, forced displacements of individuals from their homes and communities, and desecration and destruction of churches and other religious sites".

"This effectively resulted in the ethnic cleansing of large portions of the Serb and Roma populations from those areas in Kosovo south of the Ibar river, with the exception of a few scattered minority enclaves," the SITF report says.

"We believe that the evidence is compelling that these crimes were not the acts of rogue individuals acting on their own accord, but rather that they were conducted in an organised fashion and were sanctioned by certain individuals in the top levels of the KLA leadership. The widespread or systematic nature of these crimes in the period after the war ended in June 1999 justifies a prosecution for crimes against humanity."

The SITF investigation largely confirms the findings of an earlier Council of Europe enquiry led by a Swiss politician, Dick Marty, in 2010.

It upholds the Marty report's finding that a "handful" of prisoners had been murdered so that organs could be taken and sold. "

Do you think Juan Cole will write sad articles about these kaffirs? How about old Khalidi? Will Outlook magazine devote pages and pages to these barbarisms committed by Muslims against non-Muslims? How about Prarthana Gehlote and the whole nexus of Kafila koels, cooing outrage whenever an Israeli shell drops in the wrong place?

It's time to stand up against these barbarians.

Given the coverage in Outlook, it looks as though the most important issue bothering Indians today is Gaza. Soo much space is being devoted to it.

But people simply do not care. I am convinced that among non-muslims, the interest is almost zero-beyong expressing support to Israel.

I will never forget what Yoginder Sikand wrote. After the earthquake in Kashmir, Sikand a few others tried to collect funds in Bangalore. The response they got was -zero. Nobody cared about the plight of Kashmiris-while the same people sent a lot of things to victims of Orissa flood and Gujarat earthquake.

Sikand, the closet succu, was smart enough to realize how much the thinking of Indians is different from what the people in media think.

A small tip to the succus-there is a time to speak and there is a time not to speak. Comparisons are made with Manmohan. The complaint was NOT that he did not speak but that he did not speak WHEN NEEDED. Big difference. For example, had he spoken about 2G scam the moment it broke out, he could have saved his bacon.

Despite the plethora of articles in OLI and links provided by helpful forum contributors, that everyone including Jews are anti the Israeli campaign in Gaza, public opinion in Israel is firmly behind the PM.

Why Israelis are rallying behind latest Gaza campaign - BBC

Mr Netanyahu was being blamed for failing to prevent the international community from recognising a Palestinian unity deal with Hamas and Islamic Jihad - an endorsement that for Israelis looks grotesque in hindsight.

Then came Hamas and accomplished what had seemed impossible: it unified Israelis....

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog from the Labour Party - who will face off against Mr Netanyahu whenever Israel will have its next election - has praised the ground offensive in the Gaza Strip as strongly as the prime minister's closest supporters.

Unifying effect
The reason why Hamas has been so effective in unifying Israelis is that they attacked the Israeli consensus.

They didn't attack the West Bank, whose fate divides Israelis. They attacked Tel Aviv and close to Ben-Gurion International Airport with rockets, targeted left-wing agricultural communities on Israel's side of the border with Gaza from what Israel calls terror tunnels, and allegedly kidnapped boys on the way home from school in a society that is obsessed with children.

Addendum to my post, which inadvertently missed out, from MKB's blog as referenced: .... "India’s forthright, unambiguous statement in the UN forums identifying itself with the anguish and anger of the world community over Israel’s war crimes in Gaza has evoked a range of strange responses in the country. Those who ought to have warmly commended the Narendra Modi government — Congress Party, Left parties, Indian Union Muslim League [IUML] and Samajwadi Party — have ducked, while the Friends of Israel [FOI] cry murder."

Is the Israeli response to the firing of rockets disproportionate? The answer is probably yes. Perhaps they should respond by firing one rocket indiscriminately into Gaza for everyone fired from Gaza into Israel. That said, this statement seems hysterical and coming from a Professor of Arab studies makes the author seem unhinged.

Israel's security services knew they were dead from the beginning, and knew this was the act of a rogue cell, NOT ordered by Hamas, but its government cynically hid these facts in service of a hysterical propaganda campaign to justify an attack on Gaza. 

In any crime, one looks for a motive. Why on earth would Israeli security services want to launch an attack on Gaza if the inhabitants were doing them no harm? Hamas tried

When Hamas did not rise to the bait, and exerted efforts to halt the firing of rockets by smaller groups in Gaza, Israel escalated by killing several Hamas militants, provoking the desired response of rockets fired at Israel.

Hamas trying to stop the firing of rockets,? What is the eminent prof smoking?

The first two are Israeli sites, the second is American and the last is sort of British. Each of them provides extensive documentation and their sources are mentioned.

Protests in parts of Kashmir over Gaza crisis on Eid-ul-Fitr

Srinagar: Several parts of Kashmir Tuesday witnessed violent protests against the Israeli offensive in Gaza strip soon after the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, police said.

Although peaceful protests were held at many places against the Israeli action, groups of youth indulged in stone-pelting at Hyderpora and Maulana Azad Road in the city soon after the Eid prayers in these areas concluded, they said.

Reports of similar incidents were reported from Sopore town in Baramulla district, Janglat Mandi area of Anantnag district and Shopian town, police said.

Law enforcing agencies fired several rounds of tear smoke shells to chase away the protesters, they said, adding no one was injured in the incidents. ''

In June this year, Mohammed Merazuddin could have been a mechanical engineer. Instead, three months after he was detained briefly by the Delhi Police for alleged links with the Indian Mujahideen (IM), the 22-year-old is at Delhi’s Tablighi Jamaat, cut off entirely from the world of science and technology that he had chosen for himself.
Suspended by his college, Jaipur’s Global Institute of Technology (GIT), after his detention, Merazuddin, or Meraz, has not been allowed back, says his family.

Meraz, a fourth year B.Tech student, was picked up early on March 23 by the Delhi Police from a house in Jaipur that he shared with alleged IM operative Waqar Azhar, a fellow mechanical engineering student accused of plotting a terror attack during the Lok Sabha elections. Meraz was alleged to have lent his laptop to Waqar.
However, the Delhi Police released Meraz within 18 hours, handing him over to his father after completing a few formalities in the capital ''

" Tweeting, "“Only the Gujarat model, that worked from 2002 in containing their rioting elements, can work. Apply across Bharat,” is inflammatory, hate-inciting and aimed at communalizing the atmosphere.

1. The mistake is in saying workdd FROM 2002. It should say AFTER the 2002 riots.  After 2002 riots, Gujarat has done remarkably well, especially in the context of the violent history of communal riots in that state.

2. A call for zero tolerance to rioting is neither hate-inciting nor inflammatory and is aimed at prevention of riots. Not every citizen riots, only a handful of anti-social, criminals who ought to be contained.

3. Containing rioting elements mean exactly that - those who can be mobilised to respond to calls to rioting. Such elements can be found in all communities.

If anything we have URDU and ENGLISH Supremacism working in India. A language understood by less than 0.1% of Indians threatens u? It is like telling that the biggest danger to our planet is emission of Carbon Dioxide by exhalation of pet dogs and so pets must be banned.

"Making schoolchildren all over India chant slokas through play is imitative of missionary techniques."

So, now children chanting "Mathru Devo Bhava" is going to raise the hackles of these fascists. Be prepared to face the famed fascist intolerance for anything hindu, specially after the severe drubbing they faced 2 months ago.

Inflaming communal hatreds and promoting riots has become a basic BJP DNA. They cannot live without it.

D.L.Narayan,

>>>> " Good of you to compare ISIS with Dinanath Batra's movement. It is good to be against both."

>> "False equivalence"

You are the one who brought it up!

He is just spreading lies and misinformation and promoting communal hatreds. Read this:

 Dinanath has qualtfied for Bharat Ratna by authoring such wonderful works. Moral teaching by his pen will go a long way to arrest debiant behaviour in Indian youth. 

Only problem he will face---how to explain  Indra, the King of Heaves raping Ahilya peious wife of rish Gautama and many other such stories.

Thanks, SJS, for your feedback.

Yes, the Palestinians have been victims of grave injustice, but so have many others too, victims of powerful historical forces beyond anyone's control.

The Sindhis, far more numerous, with a very distinct culture and language, too are victims. They have accepted their fate, settled down in India and have moved on.

I don't see how the example of the Sindhis is irrelevant. We have two people, uprooted from their lands at the same time and yet reacted in different ways. The Sindhis adopted the path of pragmatism and moving ahead. The Palestinians opted for violent struggle and have held the world to ransom - hijacking is their gift to humanity. As Gandhiji pointed out, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."

When I talked of the Palestinian wedding, it was to underline their cultural affinity with the Lebanese and Syrians. Instead of making them refugees and hosting them in refugee camps since 1948, they could have been absorbed in Syria and Lebanon, like India absorbed the Sindhis and west Punjabis.

More later.

D.L.Narayan,

>>>>  "Have you been appointed the dhobi to wash all the dirty Muslim linen in this forum?"

>> "Washing is anyday prrferable to whitewashing."

There is plenty of Hindu dirty linen to be washed judging by the daily city news of our newspapers, but Ghai has devoted his life to collecting Muslim bad news with a passion and devotion which would have served him well if he had concentrated his efforts on his own community. Sickos like him and you however seem determined to ignore Hindu bad news and magnify and highlight Muslim bad news with the zeal of professional propagandists!

Ketaki Malhotra >> f the original community's link with the language is an arbitrary link then why doubt a "western" scholar like Wendy Doniger being way more Sanskrit literate than some of these mindless desi fans

Yes, Zakir Naik has understood non Islamic faiths better in that he has spent countless hours to study their texts but do we take him as a role model for defining religious tolerance and secularism? If yes, please read this:

Ketaki Malhotra >> The ease with which people can assume "hatred for Hinduism" in another person and allow themselves to get personal is a sign. It only strenghtns the view that calling for depoliticising is a very good idea indeed.

The Mountains of evidence point that the equivalent of caste system have existed across this planet in different point of times..

In Medevial Christian Catholic Netherlands, In Pre Meiji restoration Japan (Ainus), In Pre Colonial New Zealand (among Maoris) and in 2014 yemen (Al Akhdam).

The ease with which people form simplistic associations and make sweeping statements like Sanskrit and Hinduism are against civil liberties, must be extinguished in the interest of social justice or that AIT (disproved comprehensively by genetic studies) is the basis of Indian history, show again that the idea of skepticism must be the principal idea that should drive all debates. But that is least lacking among the Leftists/Marxists who are so cocksure of their theories and try to fit all the happenings in this nation in one straight line which brackets India into two groups of good and bad (sanskrit, hinduism, upper castes are in the bad group).

Reality is much different.. The fact that India was ruled for much of last 3000 years by Jains , Buddhist, Islamic and British rulers, all of whom had contempt or dislike for sanskrit and hindu beliefs show that straight line division of Indian history is not possible.
