You must have heard the claim that modern-day 'Israel' is a country with another people's language and religion? If you haven't, you're probably living in some idyllic wilderness (that's a good thing), and you can skip this post. If you have, anti-semitic propaganda has become so common these days (I'm speaking of hatred against ordinary Jews, and not criticism against...
BREXIT IS ESSENTIALLY the fantasy of the 'hard' right wing of the Tory Party, who wanted to 'get back control' of the UK's sovereignty by controlling its borders and having the freedom to make its own trade deals with the rest of the world but largely without immigration. They won the last referendum in 2016 mainly on immigration, and not...
Dear British Paharis I speak to you through this medium as a brother from Indian Occupied Kashmir. I speak to you for our shared homeland, history, and continuous struggle against oppression and aggression. We are the children of hills and mountains. We fought collectively against the brutality of the Dogra Regime for our freedom and many before them, and now...
EXCERPT from "The Evolution of AJK Public Agency" "Before arriving here, I can confidently assert that I was neither a patriot, nor a nationalist or even a democrat.

If you pay attention, amidst the eerie silence of...
