Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,
The Reflection Cafe: On Faith (Sacred and Secular: Religion and Politics Worldwide) Book Review by Os Guinness Religion is the key to history, Lord Acton wrote. In today’s intellectual circles, however, it’s more like the skunk at the garden party. To many intellectuals, religion is a private matter at best, and most appropriately considered in terms of its functions rather than the significance of its beliefs, let alone its truth claims. At worst, it’s the main source of the world’s conflicts and violence—what Gore Vidal, in his Lowell Lecture at Harvard University in 1992, called “the great unmentionable evil” at the heart of our culture. .Such grim assessments are certainly debatable.

FRONTLINE/WORLD . Rough Cut . Northern Ireland: Uneasy Peace . Background Facts and Related Links Northern Ireland: A Profile Northern Ireland is the six counties that sit in the northeastern tip of the island of Ireland and it is ruled by Great Britain. The other 26 counties make up the Republic of Ireland, which succeeded from Great Britain in 1922. Outside Belfast and Londonderry, Northern Ireland is mostly rural, and its grasslands support dairy and beef operations that form the bulk of the agricultural economy. The country first became known for its shipbuilding and high quality linens.
I am completely committed to a safe haven for Jewish people after 1600 years of insecurity and periodic persecution, occasionally unspeakable tragedy due to homelessness and inequality in a world where many religions still are not used to coexistence as equals. That is why I am happy that the West finally recognized its sins decades ago, after the Holocaust and embraced a safe haven for Jewish people. It is great that there is a place to go, automatic citizenship when facing persecution. Every persecuted people should have such a place to go to, such as Palestinians.
