Last week the ousted president of Egypt. Mohammed Morsi appeared before a military court in his first public appearance since being removed from power last July. The astonishing fall from power Egypt’s first ever civilian ruler marks the end of the Egyptian revolution – for now at least – and the reassertion of military dominance, according toFaisal Bodi
IHRC and CI are and have been deeply concerned about the never-ending spiral of violence and killing in Syria. People have been killed and continue to die in their tens of thousands, at least 2.5 million are internally displaced, hundreds of thousands are refugees, and the most horrendous acts of sexual violence, desecration and abuse have become commonplace with sectarian narratives driving a zero sum attitude on all sides.

Tom is the live Thanksgiving* Turkey donated to the White House for the dinner. And every year since he has taken office, Obama has pardoned him.

To propagate tolerance, religious scholars and leaders from different political parities of Pakistan announced a joint signing of a declaration on condemning sectarianism in country and vowed to eradicate the cause of conflict from society, held in Turkey.
