It’s not the lava and the heat per se; it’s the obscuring of the entire atmosphere, and it made it very difficult for the human race to survive.” ~ Werner Herzog

And that’s an extraordinarily important thing. And that emanated in Pakistan.” ~ Michael Scheuer

That makes it very clear that this is a global network.” ~ Hillary Clinton

  55. “There’s the complex categorization of low warmth/high competence. This is the hostile stereotype of Asian Americans by white America, of Jews in Europe, of Indo-Pakistanis in East Africa, of Lebanese in West Africa, of ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, and of the rich by the poor most everywhere. It’s the same low-high derogation: They’re cold, greedy, clannish – -but, dang, they’re sure good at making money and you should go to one who is a doctor if you’re seriously sick.” ~ Robert M. Sapolsky
  56. “When you’re on MTV Asia, you’re like royalty. When you walk down the streets of the Philippines or Indonesia, everyone wants to try to touch you.” ~ Kerri Kasem

  57. “During my travels in Iraq, Israel, Gaza, Brazil, Indonesia, Japan, Europe and all over the United States, I have seen and heard the voices of people who want change.

  58. “But it’s not just the cattle producers, it’s all the attendant industries like transport and shipping and feed producers and the like.

  62. “Today, practically every country outside the West is undergoing an intellectual, political, and cultural churning, from China to Bolivia, Egypt to Indonesia, but we haven’t really had, after the 1960s, a major oppositional culture in Western Europe and America.

Among them, they have very great teachers who have written poems about al-Hallaj, and they have not been killed.

And you can go down the same line through Indonesia and Malaysia.” ~ Seyyed Hossein Nasr
  65. “To achieve effectiveness and legitimacy it is time to scrap the right of veto given to permanent members of the UN, or at least severely restrict its use. It is also time to either abandon the idea of permanent membership or broaden it to reflect the rise of non-Western states to the status of global leaders (e.g. Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey, South Africa), and to downgrade European representation by either giving the European Union a single seat or rotating a European state among Germany, France, UK, and Italy.” ~ Richard A. Falk
