TRUMP PROMISES KIM CAN STAY IN POWER, OR FACE THE SAME FATE AS LIBYA’S GADDAFI

18 MAY 2018 – US President Donald Trump tried to put his summit with Kim Jong Un back on track Thursday, offering the North Korean leader guarantees of staying in power if he abandons nuclear weapons. As prospects for a historic summit next month between the two leaders dimmed, Trump told reporters that if the meeting were to go ahead successfully, Kim “will get protections that will be very strong.” “He’d be in his country and running his country. His country would be very rich.” But the pledge came barbed with a warning that if diplomacy fails, Kim could suffer the same fate as Libya’s Moamer Kadhafi, who was overthrown and killed by rebels.

A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO THE GAZA CRISIS

18 MAY 2018 – The Gaza crisis continues to polarise nations and individuals around the world. The question that Christians need to consider is not who is right and who is wrong, or who is to be blamed for the countless deaths and deep trauma, but how to maintain a position of being “peacemakers” in a region of perpetual war.
