And the World is (again) silent

By. Imam Shamsi Ali* 

It is unfortunate and painful to see what is taking place in the holy city, the city of many Prophets, the city of sacred houses of God, Jerusalem. We see another violent attack on the Palestinians who are peacefully worshipping in and around masjid Al-Aqsa.

More than 170 Palestinians have been injured, many of them have been severely injured, after the Israeli police stormed the mosque and some other areas around the city while they were performing their ritual tarawih prayer in Ramadan. 

U.S. Security Cooperation With Australia

KONFRONTASI -   Australians and Americans have fought side by side in every major U.S. military conflict of the past century, including World Wars I & II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and in present-day operations against violent extremist organizations like Al Qaida, the Islamic State, and their global affiliates. This close partnership was first formalized with the Australia, New Zealand, United States (ANZUS) Security Treaty of 1951. Almost 70 years later, the Treaty remains the foundation of our security relationship with Australia.

What Erling Haaland's agent told Laporta during Thursday's meeting

KONFRONTASI -   Erling Haaland's agent Mino Raiola told Joan Laporta and other Barca chiefs that his client will only sign for Barcelona or Real Madrid if he leaves Dortmund, CAT Radio reports.

Apparently, this was why Raiola and Haaland's father flew to Madrid immediately after meeting with Laporta - to deliver the same message.

As per Dortmund, they will only sell their star man for €150m.

It's now looking like a two-horse race between the El Clasico giants to land one of Europe's hottest strikers.

“How To Fix Our Democracy”

by Rizal Ramli




Something is profoundly wrong with the way our democracy is being run these days.

It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this.  Many of us remember 1998, a year that promised great change.  Back then we had high hopes that Indonesia would be transformed into a democracy.
