99 Problems But a Cape Ain't One: Print this page|EmailShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on DiggShare on Lifestream  AnimationOpinionCulture41 Comments Superhero fans, especially those old enough to have opinions, are often divided by their views on the appropriateness of real-world politics in their escapist literature. While many of us regard Dennis O'Neil and Neil Adams' socially relevant run on "Green Lantern/Green Arrow" to be a superlative example of costumed heroes confronting the hard-hitting issues of the day, just as many readers dismiss it as didactic and inappropriate given the characters' roots in benign adolescent power fantasies.

Rabbi Arthur Waskow from Mt Airy says: One long rant above against Islam is filled with rage but no facts. ALL religions (including Judaism, in which I am a rabbi) have some bloody strands, and ALL are centered on love, compassion, and justice. Hindus invented the suicide bomber tactic in this generation, Sikhs murdered Indira Gandhi, Christian terrorists in Ireland -- both Protestant and Catholic -- turned northern Ireland into turmoil for 40 years, Jewish terrorists have murdered Muslim and Christian Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, Buddhists fought a civil war in Sri Lanka and supported the military adventures of the Japanese govt before and during World War II, the Ku Klux Klan were Christian (Protestant) terrorists.In the Quran, God says that the human race was created through…

First the Masjid disappears, then the law

Uncategorized
Submitted by admin4 on 14 October 2010 - 11:47am ArticlesIndian Muslim By Shafeeq Rehman Mahajir,In the Ayodhya matter, has the judgement of the Allahabad High Court unwittingly taken the law to the ideological right, and conferred legitimacy on questionable doctrine of majoritarian supremacy, while at the same time succeeding, I cannot say inadvertently or otherwise, in concealing it ?

The verdict has the distinction of leaving us wondering if we are watching an illusion, in effect, though obviously such a situation would never have been ever intended by any Court, to distract the citizens from seeing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Why is…
