Failing to fight poverty
Barry Artiste Op/Ed
As heartbreaking as it is to hear and see when children die of hunger and disease, pointing the wagging fingers of accusations against western countries is ludicrous.
For one, look to the governments of these countries first and find out how this can happen!
First of all Indonesia is one of the worlds largest populace, and a Muslim country to boot!
Now this is not a anti Muslim rant, so holster your waggin fingers. Now lets put things in perspective, why the hell should the West be the world's Larder? We bring food aid, you kidnap us, behead us and tell us to get the f*ck out! You hate us to begin with and try your damnedest to blow us up at every opportunity, so why do you want us there? Oh I see, you just want us to airdrop groceries to your promised land now and again anonymously, so you can take the credit to your starving masses and get Imams to spout, OHHH lookee Allah and our benevolent leaded have provided for you!
Now lets focus on your Muslim brethren, the Saudis. The Saudis have more money than GOD! The worlds starving masses pretty much centre on Muslim/Islamic countries who are pretty much fighting and blowing shit up, including each other. So back to the Saudi's, why are not the Saudi's parting with some of that cash to help out their so called Brethren? Answer that one? The Saudi's who are the richest of the Muslim world have the cash and should be moving Allah and earth to help out those less fortunate, though I am sure some do, the bulk of this help is from the anglo judeo christian world who are constantly told to stay out of Muslim affairs or suffer the consequences. Am I wrong? Take care of your own, including changing your world for the better, instead of trying to turn our Western world into yours, cause our world, though not perfect is pretty goddam sweet compared to yours.
So put your money where your mouth is and concentrate your energies where it will do the most good, to the starving brethren. Saudis, stop for a minute and quit counting your gold, cause the din most likely is preventing you from listening! In ending if Allah is so powerful, where is your God now? Bowling? Get with the program, cause as far as I am concerned Charity begins at home, last time I checked the atlas your countries weren't on it.
SULAWESI ISLAND, Indonesia — The greatest promises ever made to Earth’s most vulnerable inhabitants, and we’re not keeping our word.
Historic goals, agreed to by the largest number of world powers in the history of mankind — including Canada — and there’s now fear we risk catastrophic failure.
Is it time — as we prepare to host landmark G8 and G20 summits next year — for Canada to command the world stage and champion the cause of humanity’s needy? Or are we doing all we can for those dwelling outside our border?
