(LAHORE)  Friday, armed men opened fire on a missionary institution, St. Franciscan High School, in Behar colony Lahore . One student and two security guards were injured and have were hospitalized. Students and faculty panicked in the school as gunmen fired.

The unidentified gunmen began firing and as the guards on duty outside the school intercepted, they were caught in the firing and injured . The students of the school were directed to leave the school premises.   The investigation is underway. The Churches and Christian institutions already have been warned about security threat from hardliners.

Behar Colony is the second largest Christian residential area in Lahore and Lahore is the second largest city of Pakistan.

On Wednesday, Nouman Masih, a 14 year old young Christian boy, lost the battle of life in Mayo Hospital. He was set on fire by an unknown men after inquiring about his Christian faith.

On 1st April, brother of human rights defender Mr. Sardar Mushtaq Gill, head of LEAD (Legal Evangelical Development) miraculously survived after being attacked and shot by a Muslim man in his lower back .The perpetrators have not yet been arrested and the police refused to provide security.  Mr.Gill’s life was threatened due to his legitimate and non-violent human rights work which he has performed constantly in recent years.  His life has been at risk, as well as his family’s.  Yet he says he is wholeheartedly determined to stand in the support of victims of violence and to raise his voice against the violation of human rights in Pakistan.

The Christian School of Pakistan became the target of uncalled for violence again.  On 24 March,  two masked motorcyclists opened fire on policemen guarding St. Peter’s Catholic Church and High School in the Girja Chowk area of Township, Lahore.  Gunshots left two people  injured.

These shooting incidents come after the two churches were attacked by the suicide bombers in Youhanabad, the largest Christian locality in Pakistan.

In the church attacks, young Akash Bashir, who was on duty as a voluntary security guard outside the church, lost his life while attempting to stop a suicide bomber from entering the Church.  21people were killed in that attack.

After a lynching of two suspects, the government started a crackdown against Christians.  This included arresting activists and a number of Christians from Youhanabad and surrounding areas.

The Christian minority, a poverty-stricken community in Pakistan, constantly is marginalized and victimised by such violence.The extremism is the main reason for violence against religious minorities.  It is time to eradicate religious extremism and discrimination from the society to achieve a peaceful atmosphere where justice can prevail and rule of law should be implemented.  The religious minorities should be given equal rights and should be treated equally before law.

Our request for you all first pray and then to stand in our support and raise your voice for religious liberty which is beibg made more worsened and against the religious extremism and terrorism.  Our work for justice will be more strengthening with your practical support.

In Solidarity,
LEAD

Rwanda, a U.S. friend and ally – U.S. realpolitik at work

Rwanda's president Paul Kagame with Barack Obama at the White House on April 7, 2015

Rwanda’s president Paul Kagame with Barack Obama at the White House on April 7, 2015

The 1994 mass killings were horrible, but it was just one episode in a long history of violence in that part of the world.

Ralph E. Stone Global News Centre

(SAN FRANCISCO) On April 7, 2015, President Barack Obama marked the 21st anniversary of Rwanda’s 1994 mass killings “that would claim the lives of more than 800,000 Rwandan men, women, and children and mark the beginning of one hundred days of horror for Rwanda’s people.”   However, President Obama made no mention about Rwandan President Paul Kagame’s role in the four-year Rwandan civil war leading up to the civil war and the twenty years after, which include 5 million or more deaths in the Congo and in Rwanda.

We should familiarize ourselves with the 1916 Sykes–Picot Agreement, the Jules Cambon and Belfour Declarations of 1917, with Paris Peace Conference 1919, with the San Rimo Conference 1920, the Seville Treaty down to the Oslo and Camp David accords and many other treacherous plans by the “west” and by the zionist movement to divide and conquer with help of petty tin-pot dictators in the Arab world.

What People Need to Know About the Latest Mass Murder. (Especially reporters and their editors)

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)  “Even at normal doses, taking psychiatric drugs can produce suicidal thinking, violent behavior,  aggressiveness,  extreme anger,  hostility, irritability, loss of ability to control impulses, rage reactions, hallucinations, mania, acute psychotic episodes, akathisia, and bizarre, grandiose, highly elaborated destructive plans, including mass murder.

“Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs can cause agitation, severe depression, hallucinations, aggressiveness, hypomania, akathisia, fear, terror, panic, fear of insanity, failing self-confidence, restlessness, irritability, aggression, an urge to destroy and, in the worst cases, an urge to kill.” -  From Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter # 296: “Drug Studies Connecting Psychotropic Drugs with Acts of Violence” – unpublished.

Monument to Tamils slain by the Sri Lankan government in a Genocide that culminated in 2009, yet continues today.

The only change that has taken place is that the people have become more daring than at any time during the last six years to come forward and present their views.

Intro by Visvanathan for Global News Centre

(CHENNAI)  Please read the links below and see what change the new regime has brought to the Tamils in their Homeland. As a couple of TNA leaders gloat around, has it in any way brought any relief to the Tamils?  In the first link all Tamils in the North and the East are protesting against local investigations in War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. They have no faith in the local mechanism. They want an international investigation into war crimes. Please find out what the people have to say.

Duty to Warn: The Red Lake School shootings, 10th anniversary

Mixing Drugs, Guns, Crushing Poverty, Generational Racism, and Predatory Capitalism Doesn’t Work

Gary G. Kohls, MD for Global News Centre

(DULUTH)    March 21, 2005 – Red Lake, Minnesota – Under the crazy-making and neurotoxic influence of 60 mg of Prozac,  and using his grandfather’s shotgun and Glock pistol, Jeff Weise, age 16, shot and killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girl friend at their home. He then went to his Red Lake High School and shot and killed a security guard, a teacher, 5 students, and finally himself, leaving a total of 10 dead and 7 wounded. Weise had previously spent about a year and a half in a residential juvenile treatment program, presumably under the care of a prescribing psychiatrist and other mental health personnel. Weise had reportedly had had his dose of Prozac increased to 60 mg per day. (Note: only one American SSRI “antidepressant” [all of which have  identical mechanisms of action and cause adverse effects] is FDA-approved for adolescents, and in some European nations it is against the law for doctors to prescribe SSRIs for children because of the  lack of long-term safety studies and the known increased incidence of violence and suicide. The usual starting dose of Prozac for adults is 10 – 20 mg/day and 8% of the population lacks the liver enzymes to metabolize and de-toxify SSRI drugs, thus becoming instantly toxic from the drugs.)

Anger at ‘hideous collusion’ over Scottish training of Sri Lankan police

“Human rights campaigners and family members of people subjected to enforced disappearance were threatened and arrested, and fatal attacks on religious minorities went unpunished…” – Siobhan Reardon, Amnesty International’s Programme Director in Scotland

Global News Centre

(TAMIL GUARDIAN)  Scotland’s police service is due to renew a controversial deal under which Sri Lanka’s security forces receive training, The National reported on Thursday.

The Scottish Police College (SPC) has provided the training since 2007 but the current contract is due to expire at the end of this month.

However, in a move that has been condemned by politicians and human rights campaigners, the SPC have confirmed that they are close to sealing a new contract for 2015-2016 to further work to develop Sri Lanka’s National Police Academy.

Bibi and 47 senators strike dark discordant note

screen-shot-2015-03-11-at-5-01-01-pm1Newly-elected Senator Cotton and neocon leader Bill Kristol are now doing the work of AIPAC, and their pro-Israel, anti-Iran funders, standing with a foreign leader on a foreign policy issue against their own president.

Dr. James Wall Global News Centre

(CHICAGO)   A week before Prime Minister Netanyahu’s March 3 campaign speech to the U.S. Congress, Secretary of State John Kerry warned the Congress that the Israeli leader was up to his old tricks.

Not only did the Israeli leader shamefully interfere in delicate U.S. foreign negotiations, he also inspired an embarrassing ill-informed letter from 47 senators to “Iranian leaders”, designed to undermine President Obama’s negotiations with Iran.

Netanyahu wins, peace loses

Under Netanyahu, we can expect more Israeli settlements.  Consider that since 1967, settlement are now home to at least 541,000 Israelis, 341,000 in the West Bank and 200,000 in east Jerusalem.

Ralph E. Stone Global News Centre

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Benjamin Netanyahu has probably retained power in Israel as his Likud party won 29 seats in Parliament while the center-left Zionist Union had 24 seats.  The Likud Party is likely to form a coalition to put together a 61-seat majority.

Netanyahu said there would be no Palestinian state under his watch, a Palestinian must condition for any agreement.  This hardline position is tacitly endorsed by the U.S. Congress. After the election, Netanyahu backtracked on his no Palestinian state statement, his anti-Arab rhetoric and his lack of seriousness about negotiations toward a two-state outcome belies his about-face.  In short, Netanyahu has won and the possibility of a Israel-Palestine peace agreement has lost.
