So, it’s official. Not even 12 years after 9/11, US President Barack H. Obama has decided to arm Al Qaeda so that it may destroy Syria, the last secular Arab country in the world! Well, not Al Qaeda directly, that would be too unpopular at home, but the Islamist terrorists, a.k.a. “rebels” or “activists” in western media, who can be considered as the political arm of the terrorist Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s branch in Syria. How did this ridiculous mind boggling policy come to pass?

All Citizens of the EU,

the EU Commission is planning to privatize the water supply infrastructure, a move that will not only significantly raise the costs of water, but also turn water into a scarce commercial commodity.

Please support the petition against this short-sighted policy.

Thank you.
