Conversion row: Ghar wapsi is illogical and so is its ideological opposition

The Sangh's Ghar Wapsi makes no sense, unless it is a formal conversion programme like those offered by other religions. Opponents of Ghar Wapsi also are wrong to assume that all other forms of conversion are above board. #Religion #BJP #Islam #InMyOpinion #Hinduism #Hindutva #Sangh Parivar #Opposition #RSS #Secularism #Conversion #Sangh #religious conversion #Convert #ghar wapsi #Anti-Sangh activists #Christanity

Egypt allows in travellers from Gaza for first time since October

GAZA (Reuters) - Egypt opened the Rafah border crossing on Sunday for incoming passengers from the Gaza Strip for the first time in almost two months, Palestinian and Egyptian officials said. Rafah is the only major crossing between impoverished Gaza, home to 1.8 million Palestinians, and the outside world that does not border Israel, which blockades the strip and allows passage mainly on humanitarian grounds. Egypt shut the crossing on October 25 after Islamist militants in Egypt's adjacent Sinai region killed 33 members of its security forces in some of the worst anti-state violence since Islamist president Mohamed Mursi was toppled in July 2013. #United States #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #opinion

Lebanon says it needs French helicopters quickly to fight jihadis

PARIS (Reuters) - Lebanon hopes France will deliver helicopters to its army faster than planned so it can fight jihadis encroaching from neighbouring Syria, Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam said in an interview on Sunday. France and Lebanon signed a $3 billion Saudi-funded deal in early November to provide French weapons and military equipment to the Lebanese army, which has few resources to deal with the instability on its border and has been seeking to modernise its military hardware. Paris plans to start supplying the equipment in the first quarter of 2015 and over a period of three years, ending with the delivery of helicopters, a defence ministry source said last month #Business #United States #India #China #Syria #Brazil #Middle East #United Kingdom #Latin America #author #opinion
