Do Not Censor Hezbollah via Twitter

30 Dec

Shutting down communication and forbidding dialogue is the quickest way to war. Thus, allowing Hezbollah to air its views on Twitter is healthy and promotes peace. A lot of people will decide that Hezbollah’s path of violence is a turn off based on their rhetoric. Hezbollah will learn that its message is generally not being well-received, which may cause it to rethink its position.

Author of Elusive Peace Teaches Incarcerated Women Principles of Peacemaking

31 Oct

Fresno, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2011

Douglas E. Noll Professional Mediator and co-founder of Prison of Peace, a non profit organization dedicated to teaching peacemaking and mediating skills for incarcerated women, discovered insights from working with inmates that helped shape his new groundbreaking book, Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts (Prometheus Spring 2011).

“We started the Prison of Peace nonprofit project a few months after I had acquired a publishing contract for Elusive Peace. A female inmate in Valley State Prison in Chowchilla, California reached out to us through a handwritten letter for help in reducing the conflict and violence within the prison. While working with these women, I saw many similarities to war and violence. My thought was that if we could be successful teaching these women with dark pasts, many of them serving time for murder and manslaughter, to be peacemakers, it would be a strong testament to the

Douglas E Noll, professor, professional mediator, international peace consultant and author of [Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts (Prometheus 2011) offers guidance on recent concerns that elected officials are discussing using military force on Iran for an alleged assassination plot of the Saudi Ambassador to the US (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-16/military-force-an-option-against-iran-intelligence-chair-says.html).

“A military attack for a botched plan is the kind of retributive, vengeful thinking that is explained in my book, showing the cause and detrimental effects this type of outdated and ineffective strategy for international affairs has on US reputation and economic stability,” Noll explains.

In the book, Elusive Peace, Noll offers historic proof that using “18th century strategies in a 21st century world challenged with unprecedented civil and military conflict is outdated, dangerous, and expensive.” Noll us
