The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice
By Malalai Joya

Malalai Joya has been called "the bravest woman in Afghanistan." At a constitutional assembly in Kabul in 2003, she stood up and denounced her country's powerful NATO-backed warlords. She was twenty-five years old. Two years later, she became the youngest person elected to Afghanistan's new Parliament. In 2007, she was suspended from Parliament for her persistent criticism of the warlords and drug barons and their cronies. She has survived four assassination attempts to date, is accompanied at all times by armed guards, and sleeps only in safe houses.

Often compared to democratic leaders such as Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi, this extraordinary young woman was raised in the refugee camps of Iran and Pakistan. Inspired in part by her father's activism, Malalai became a teacher in secret girls' schools, holding classes in a series of basements. She hid her books under her burqa so the Taliban couldn't find them. She also helped establish a free medical clinic and orphanage in her impoverished home province of Farah. The endless wars of Afghanistan have created a generation of children without parents. Like so many others who have lost people they care about, Malalai lost one of her orphans when the girl's family members sold her into marriage.

While many have talked about the serious plight of women in Afghanistan, Malalai Joya takes us inside the country and shows us the desperate dayto-day situations these remarkable people face at every turn. She recounts some of the many acts of rebellion that are helping to change the country -- the women who bravely take to the streets in peaceful protest against their oppression; the men who step forward and claim "I am her mahram," so the fundamentalists won't punish a woman for walking alone; and the families that give their basements as classrooms for female students.

A controversial political figure in one of the most dangerous places on earth, Malalai Joya is a hero for our times, a young woman who refused to be silent, a young woman committed to making a difference in the world, no matter the cost.

Her book can be purchased here.

Scientists can't deny what they see with their own eyes.....

The same thing happened in Israel when Lebanon was attacking Israel in 2006, many of the rockets landed in Israel without going off and many missed their targets. Divine intervention indeed!

Our testimony.

It was the Christ and his mother that led me to the Father. The LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Also it was witnessed by other people; people have seen the Christ walking with me when we were helping others to become healers. One of the people that saw him walking with me was an unbeliever. A student that had left her home country to study in England to get away from her parents and religion. Then when she saw him with me it turned her beliefs on its head. She could not deny what she saw with her own eyes. There were also other witnesses that bear witness to her testimony. I did not know that the girl had walked away from religion etc until after she told us what she saw and shared her story of divine experience.

Everyone was blessed that day with the Holy Spirit.

Truly blessed...

Prophet Isaiah gave a beautiful prophecy about the children.

When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction." Isaiah 29

Glory be to God

The Musician

This was just sent to us by an Israeli musician and it is a very beautiful piece.

Something to think about...

Washington DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule.

4 minutes later:
The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the till and, without stopping, continued to walk.

6 minutes:
A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

10 minutes:
A 3 year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly, as the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced them to move on.

45 minutes:
The musician played. ⁄ Only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32.

1 hour:
He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition..
No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story.

Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people's priorities. The questions raised: in a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ....

How many other things are we missing?

Here is a link to the full story in the Washington Post.

Appeal for the Children of Cambodia

UN Watch Oral Statement. Delivered by Cindy D. Tan, 1 October 2009

Agenda Item 10: Technical Assistance and Capacity-Building. Appeal for the Lost Children of Cambodia.

UN Watch extends its appreciation to the Special Rapporteur and we welcome his report.

Mr. President,

For me, this topic is not academic. I am a child of Cambodia. My parents were forced into labor for four years during the Cambodian genocide. My mother was raped, and my father was burned with cigarettes. My family died in those camps.

To this very day, the legacy of genocide continues to claim victims in Cambodia, and I urge this Council to address their plight.

Every year, two million women and children are sold into sexual slavery. Many are sold for $10. Many are under the age of 5.

Professor Subedi, your report refers to “noteworthy achievements” in combating sexual trafficking. Is this why sexual trafficking is missing from the priorities you defined in your report?

Every year, children become trapped by abject poverty and are forced into hard labor. They suffer from disease and abuse. This is their fate.

Professor Subedi, will you, in your next report, address the urgent situation of child labor?

The Cambodian people are deprived of a fair judiciary and responsible government. Most Cambodians do not believe in the legal system. Most Cambodians do not even know that they have human rights.

May the will of God be done

Eco Debt Disables Humanity

The greater the ECO debt the greater that humanity are disabled to live a healthy and long life. As Jesus said "The measure you give will be the measure that you will receive." We certainly do reap what we sow and in the bible Jesus says it comes back to you 30, 60, or 100 fold.


A growing number of people around the UK are recognising the need to change their lifestyles -- to use fewer resources and create less waste.These films from West Dorset show how some motivated people are bringing their communities together and inspiring others to recycle, use fewer resources and use alternative sources of power and building materials. These people are the true pioneers of One Planet Future. By reducing their Ecological Footprint they are easing the pressure on the Earth's natural systems, and finding healthier and happier ways to live.

Part I
This explains the concept of Ecological Footprint, highlighting a campaign in Lyme Regis in West Dorset to rid the town and its beaches of plastic bags and reduce the town's ecological footprint.

I remember a school holiday in Lyme Regis it is a beautiful part of the country, it was also the location/setting for the film "The French Lieutenant’s Woman." As we know the film had two different endings and it is sure to be this way for humanity. Those that do good and take care of God's creation will have a different ending to others that do not live in harmony with the Spiritual law.

Part 2

Fantastic cornish ice cream and clotted cream in this area of the country.

God bless everyone who do their best to reduce their carbon footprint on the earth.
