From Infinity to Man- does the Kabbalah become scientific?

From Infinity to Man- does the Kabbalah become scientific?

Reading the Kabbalah has become somehow fashionable and a trend in US entertainment business. Madonna does it, Britney Spears also is sid to “study”the esoteric writings of Kabbalah mysticism to gain an alleged deeper and secret understanding of truth and knowledge. Similar to Buddhism which has become fashionable among US Hollywood celbrities. Normally this already should deter anybody to take this too serious. Another form of esoteric, this time Jewish. However, the Jerusalem Post  promoted the new book by Eduard…

Will Lukachenkov hijack Biden´s and Putin’s plane before the summit?

Will Lukachenkov hijack Biden´s and Putin’s plane before the summit?

In the run-up to a possible Biden-Putin meeting, Belarus dictator Lukachenkov hijacked a Ryan Air plane, which he justified as a diversion of the plane due to a bomb threat from Hamas and as a kind of anti-terrorist act and war on terror. Hamas immediately denies and as Israel is not trying to capitalize on Hamas either, it becomes apparent that Lukachenkov wanted to kidnap a Belarusian opposition member, the blogger from Nexta and a former employee of the CIA…

Im Vorfeld eines möglichen Biden-Putintreffens entführt Belarus-Dikatotor Lukatschenkwo eine Ryan Airmaschine , die er als Umleitung des Flugzeugs aufgrund einer Bombendrohung der Hamas begründet und quasi als Anti-Terrorakt und War on Terror.

Gaza ceasefire-what comes next?

Gaza ceasefire-what comes next?

As expected Hamas and Israel claim victory in the Gaza war for themselves. Netanjahu claimed that Israel achieved its goal to liquidate many Hamas cadres, destroy the tunnel system and infrastructure of Hamas that the terrorist party won´t be able to start new attacks on Israel for the coming 5-7 years. Similar Yaakov Katz euphorically comments in the Jerusalem Post that Israel´s victory is outstanding,” like no other military operation in history” and would serve West Point and other military…

Hamas propaganda: Israel as “children murderer” and new “Nazis”

Gaza: Different international and internal constellation compared to the former Gaza “war”

Gaza: Different international and internal constellation compared to the former Gaza “war”

While many commentators believe that Israel will destroy enough Hamas infrastructure and leaders as it did before in the former Gaza conflict or the war with Hisbollah in Lebanon, come to a ceasefire that will hold another 5-7 years until the next round of the conflict occurs, it is worth to read Israeli commentators who point out that the international and internal situation has changed dramatically compared with the former situation: “Israel is winning battles, Hamas is winning the war…

Israel/ Palestine: The end of the Oslo Peace Agreement and the next round of a coming showdown

The underlying conflict between Israel and the Palestians is quite obvious. The Oslo Peace agreement is dead and both sides are preparing for a showdown for the aftermath. While the PLO sticked to the conditions of the Oslo agreement, acknowleged Israel´s right to exist, abolished its former terrorism and called for a two state solution, Hamas and the Netanjahu government rejected the idea of a two state solution and did everything to undermine it.Israel used the Oslo Peace agreement to…

Annalena Baerbock’s Foreign Policy: Humanitarian Bellicist or Pacifist Appeaser?

 There is a lot to read about possible government coalitions – from black-green, to the traffic light coalition to R2G (Red2Green) . The latter variant is less likely, even if it is painted on the wall by Germany’s right-wing parties as a specter for the purpose of the election campaign. While SPIEGEL, Stern, SZ, FR and other media are very Baerbock-friendly, Springer’s BILD and Welt, Burdas Focus in combination with Jan Fleischhauer and Sahra Wagenknecht; Yippens Merkur now fire at…

Destabilization of the Balkan: EU membership or border revisions?

At the moment there are next to no reports in the media about the Balkan. As the Jugoslavia war is over, peace seems to have replaced the ethnic cleansings and open conflicts. However ethnic tensions are increasing in the Balkan. Russia, China, Turkey and some Eastern European countries try to get spheres of influence in the Balkan and the Western military is still deployed in the Kosovo to prevent bloodshed between Serbs and Kosovo Albanians while Putin´s FSB tried to…

As the discussion about a boycott of the Olympics in Beijing 2022 started and in Western countries the formation of supporters, so called “anti-China forces” and pro-Uygur forces accelerates, the Global Times tries to make counterpropaganda.

Black Lives Matter, police brutality and the state of emergency

Black Lives Matter, police brutality and the state of emergency

I think the problem is more complex than Black Live matters describes the racial problem. Of course, structural racism due to history that blacks in the era of colonialism were forcibly sold and brought to the USA as slaves and not as free willing migrants, the predominantly WASP society , social equality, the lack of a welfare state and poverty,  imperfect education systems  are factors which support racial discrimination and related social inequality. But in the case of police brutality…
