The modern spread of Islam
The future of all European women under Islam
For most people in this world, one of the most common dreams is for peace, happiness and prosperity. This applies to atheists, pagans and peoples of all religions and beliefs. Unfortunately a large percentage of our global population believes that peace, happiness and prosperity will only occur when everyone else conforms to their beliefs.
Beliefs regarding democracy and aspects of socialism have in fact created a reasonably stable order and conditions for people to live out their dreams and fantasies, but unfortunately many of these dreams and fantasies have come at other people’s expense.
For the Christians to be happy, everyone in the world must

Symbols of beauty and resistance
The famous Persian heroine, Apranik,
Under the patriarchy that evolved over the past 3000 years, women around the world have been sidelined from public office and disempowered. Yet without women, men could not survive or even thrive.
Under patriarchy, men have tried to own women and control their lives, yet they have not learned that women cannot be understood, they can only be loved and when they are loved, their joy is transformative and uniting.
Women are related to the Earth, and givers of life. Within Vedanta that inspired Persian life before Islam, men and women stood together, yet under the yoke of Islam, women remain women and carry the spirit of life from

The spread of Islam in Persia
Before Islam empowered them, the Arabs were the most disliked of all peoples. But Islam, a psychological state of believing that one is right and that one can only feel self worth when everyone conforms to one’s beliefs sent them to get revenge by conquering the world.
The Muslim conquest of Persia or the Arab conquest of Iran, led to the end of the Sasanian Empire in the year 651 and the eventual decline of the Zoroastrian religion.
The success of Muslim invaders coincided with significant political, social, economic and military weaknesses in Persia that had been a major world power. The Sasanian Empire had exhausted its human and material resources after

And British poverty
They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor”
But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot……they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” & were the lowest of the low
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn’t just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their

Residents on the small Japanese island of Okinawa in the Ryukyu archipelago south of mainland Japan live longer on average than many other cultural groups and some say they are the longest lived people with lifespans of 100 – 115 years of age common and many well documented studies have been made to support this claim.
In addition to a longer life, there are fewer incidences of the diseases that plague the Western world such as heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Scientists are so impressed that they generally agree that by adopting an Okinawan style diet, it is possible to retard or

And our urge for self destruction
Police under attack, Paris 2016
We call ourselves human beings, yet we spend much of our lives simply doing stuff and while we exist in what is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations in the universe, we are almost the only species that has such a self-destructive bent and destroys what is beautiful.
Through some very basic observation we know that millions of people take their own lives every year because for some reason, the suffering they experience in their own minds is intolerable. We can see large swathes of pristine nature being destroyed for profit. Much of what we create quickly becomes waste and this waste is returned to the environment

Alexander in the Temple of Jerusalem, Sebastiano Conca, ca. 1736
Alexander III of Macedon son of King Philip II is renowned as one of the worlds greatest military commanders. By the age of age of 18, he brought down the greatest empire the world had ever seen and conquered much of the known world by the age of 33, but the stories are not all truthful.
As a child Alexander had a passion for philosophy. He attended lectures at Mieza and was tutored by Aristotle. While there he would met Hephaestion who would later become the 2nd most powerful man in Alexander’s empire as well as Alexander’s life long

A land on fire and the world fans the flames
The world looks on at a loss to understand what is going on. People collect around various opinions as Israel finds itself being attacked from all sides. So how do we find a real perspective and it is there any such thing as justice in a region that has never known peace since the arrival of humans?
It could well be that the original Jews were a Hindu tribe that migrated some 3000 or 4000 years ago, or even further back. After all, Hinduism has been a light to the entire world although for many that’s an inconvenient truth. But it’s clear that those who call themselves Jews

Viva La Cuba
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz 1926 – 2016 led a daring revolution and protected his country from the mob.
In the week following the passing of Fidel Castro, much of the world’s media was filled with scornful opinions. Some deride him because he was a nonconformist, or because it’s reported that he has 14 children and was something of a womaniser. Others deride him because he kept his country from progressing, but all of these people are largely ignorant and self glorifying themselves in their own opinions.
In the era of the revolution, the USA was hard at work replacing democratically elected governments all over the world with tyrannical kiss-arse regimes that allowed US corporations to drain their
