    News, Editorial, Published on 18/03/2019

    » The worst massacre of innocents in eight years occurred in peaceful Christchurch on Friday. In a 36-minute orgy in two separate mosques, 50 people were shot dead.

Heroes emerged from the mosque mats and in police ranks, but the worst of the killer's work was done.

    Nobel award is a farce

    News, Editorial, Published on 10/10/2016

The Norwegian Nobel committee said Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos worked on a peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or Farc. But he failed to convince his country that the agreement was valid, and voters turned it down last week in a referendum. Mr Santos becomes the latest Nobel Peace laureate without an actual achievement, and the prize takes another blow to its credibility.

    Plans to fight terror lacking

    News, Editorial, Published on 25/11/2015

    » The wave of terrorism in recent days has been horrific. The Paris attacks killed at least 129 and shattered many hundreds of lives of the wounded and the victims' families. Similarly, a bloody attack on a hotel in Bamako, Mali, killed 27 but harmed far more. In the Middle East and in the Philippines, extremist groups beheaded a Norwegian, a Chinese citizen and a Malaysian because their families could not raise the money to ransom them.
