It seems that Americans often complain about their freedom, but the reality is we have it pretty good here. Even though our government and some of our leaders like to keep secrets from us, there are folks inside the government running the bureaucracy who are also Americans. And, because we are a nation for the people and by the people – we are the government, and therefore, we all believe the same thing. We believe in freedom and liberty, and we are against censorship, unless it is a matter of national security.
Yes, living in the United States has incredible advantages, and we are allowed to surf the Internet for an abundance of free information. Just about everything under the sun is online, and people spend countless hours researching topics which interest them. But what happens if you live in China, where the government controls everything, and there is some things they don’t want you to know. They don’t want you to demand freedom or liberty, or challenge their authority.
“China’s Communist Party has recently asked provincial authorities to control and repress all sensitive political information, including on the Internet, a Danish news website quoted the leaked documents.”
“All illegal and harmful information on Chinese and foreign web sites should be completely blocked, the crackdowns must be imposed on any aggression directed against the party and its leaders as well as against the promotion of other political systems and a free press.”
It’s unfortunate in our world that we still have this type of thinking going on amongst the leadership of any nation. Ruling with an “Iron Fist” is so 19th century, and for a nation as great and the strongest China, it’s too bad they have to still resort to these sorts of things, or even the fact that they feel it necessary to maintain absolute control over everything. Of course, when you have 1.4 billion people it’s a lot harder to control them if they decide they are not happy with the way you are running the country.

Tips for crisis management: Keep an updated list of all media, its directors, operators, journalists and opinion of lines for each of them; know who to go to respond at any time before calling a press conference, even clear ten things which was asked by a reporter first, if necessary.For exploiting a crisis situation, put up a rapid response team (spokesmen) to meet the press when it comes to your office to find your version of events; also hold any press conference which can be convened, also form a substitute team.
Jerusalem is often known as a disputed city and a lot of people treat it like the second Afghanistan. What they fail to realise is the inherent beauty of the place and the opportunity it offers to its visitors to explore and unravel the mysteries of this exquisite place. Between all the white stone buildings in the city, it is almost amazing to discover the diversity this city offers to its visitors. The East Jerusalem is the Arab-populated part of Jerusalem. According to the Jewish, it is believed that Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son at the site of the Temple Mount and also, that Prophet Muhammad went to heaven from the very site. It is based on this faith that two other temples, the First and Second Temples, were constructed at the side of the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount consists of the golden-domed mosque that dominates the skyline of Jerusalem and also the Al-Aqsa mosque with a wall that separates the Temple and the Jewish Quarters. Greatly revered by followers, this is one the most sacred sites of Judaism. The quarters also contain various religious institutions, archaeological sites and museums.
Many people are of the belief that God Almighty gave Jerusalem to Israel as an everlasting covenant and that God pronounced a curse upon those who curse Jerusalem. Also, God pronounced blessings on those who bless Jerusalem and it is believed that the return of the Lord and Saviour is directly related to Jerusalem. However events in the Middle East are rapidly moving toward total chaos. Each of the countries that surround Israel-Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt-is in upheaval to some degree. The only matter on which all can agree is their hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.Jerusalem faces a national crisis of international proportions. It is time for God’s people to remember our Biblical heritage, recalibrate our moral compass of right and wrong to God’s way of thinking, and pray for salvation both in this world and the world to come.
