International Day of Peace


International Day of Peace is observed today. Throughout the world, all wars and conflict should cease, at least to respect it. However, it is sad to note that the Israeli soldiers are still bombing Gaza Strip amid global calls for Tel Aviv to halt it.

In Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, nobody cares for the Day. The US soldiers are still at their offensive in both Iraq and Afghanistan while warring factions in some parts of Pakistan are still killing each other.

Israel doesnt belong to humanity, I suppose.

The International Day of Peace, observed each year on 21 September, is a global call for non-violence. This year, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (read his message) is calling on young people around the world to take a stand for peace under the theme, Youth for Peace and Development.

Youth, peace and development are closely interlinked: Peace enables development, which is critical in providing opportunities for young people, particularly those in countries emerging from conflict.

Healthy, educated youth are in turn crucial to sustainable development and peace. Peace, stability and security are essential to achieving the Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations, aimed at slashing poverty, hunger, disease, and maternal and child death by 2015.

Why cant we observe the day? To those at war, aren't we sick and tired of it?

what is peace to israel. they wont stop their atrocity on the palestinians even for a day.

but there is nothing the united nations could do to prevent their onslaught as long as the americans are in control of the world body and continue its undivided support to the regime

apa erti keamanan jika pbb sendiri pun tak dapat buat apa2 di wilayah dunia yang bergolak?

amerika masih meneruskan penindasan ke atas rakyat iraq dan afghanistan, israel masih menduduki bumi palestin, kegiatan pengganas masih berleluasa di banyak negara manakala amerika sendiri pun ada rancangan untuk menyerang iran.

inikah yang dilaungkan oleh badan dunia itu - aman untuk sehari?

The fighters may be tired. But as long as the US military complex is churning out money from their toys of destruction, the more fronts opened up the better. It's an industry fed on human weaknesses of distrust much like the cosmetic industry feeding on women's vanity.
