I've always felt that women should be running the world. I hope after reading this some of you may come to the same conclusion. I think we need to remember that change is possible and it comes from each and every one of us. As long as there are more like Dr Nurit Peled-Elhanan and others who seek out alternatives to what they're fed, I feel a tinge of actual hope for the world.

The entry that was brought to my attention is on the fate of mothers under a violent/democratic world veiw. Read it here.
Here's an excerpt:
"Palestinian, Iraqi, Afghan women are my sisters because we are all at the grip of the same unscrupulous criminals who call themselves leaders of the free enlightened world and in the name of this freedom and enlightenment rob us of our children. Furthermore, Israeli, American, Italian and British mothers have been for the most part violently blinded and brainwashed to such a degree that they cannot realize their only sisters, their only allies in the world are the Muslim Palestinian, Iraqi or Afghani mothers, whose children are killed by our children or who blow themselves to pieces with our sons and daughters. They are all mind-infected by the same viruses engendered by politicians. And the viruses, though they may have various illustrious names–such as Democracy, Patriotism, God, Homeland–are all the same. They are all part of false and fake ideologies that are meant to enrich the rich and to empower the powerful."
