Peace on our Dime – Israel/Palestine

When a zionist once asked me why I think partitioning Israel may have resulted in the current conflict I had to point out that I came from an ethnic group whose identities of Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi were determined by a similar partition and indeed on the same religious grounds.

Protective Edge – MSF report from Gaza

I have long written about the withholding of aid to Gaza and the West Bank. But one of the major problems is we keep saying that the information coming out of Gaza is solely in the hands of non-Israeli sources and so is suspect as propaganda. The Facebooks have been aflood with images of London …

Didgeridon’t – Rolf Harris and the harm caused by Trolls/MRA

The heroes of our youth in the UK are no more. They died in ignominy. Gary Glitter and Jimmy Saville turned out to be paedophiles. While Glitter became synonymous with Child Molestation and went to trial quickly, Sir Jimmy Saville was beloved of many and a knight to boot. He died and his legacy went …

Dear Miri, I wish to expand on your line

The type of masculinity that young boys are taught is not compatible with mental health and with ethical behavior. Full stop. We’re fortunate that so relatively few will take it to the lengths that Rodger did, but I don’t know a single man who doesn’t suffer as a direct consequence of it. I know few …

Anne Graham – Put down the Bible, Learn to be Nicer

The problem with assuming that a single book has all the answers to morality is that you do terrible things. Atheism as a group has a moral code that’s grown. Yes we have had “immoral” atheists but they were not immoral due to their atheism but due to their adoption of a moral code. We …
