Crowdfunding sites based in the United States are closing down pages dedicated to right-wing campaigns in the wake of the violence at Charlottesville.

The decision has affected not only campaigns to support James Fields, the man accused of driving his car into counter protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but also – for example – right-wing group Defend Europe, that set sail on the Mediterranean to stop refugees reaching the continent.

The president gave the racists permission to take off their hoods. Even after the violence Saturday in Virginia, he refused to condemn them by name. But we can.

This weekend, more than 35,000 Muslims from 100 different countries will meet in Hampshire, England, to denounce violence and promote world peace.

In the wake of terror attacks in London and Manchester  earlier this year, the gathering sends a powerful message that Muslims stand with the rest of the world in condemning extremism in all its forms.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel pressed fellow Group of 20 leaders to compromise at the start of talks on climate and trade that have pitted U.S. President Donald Trump against virtually every other country in the club of leading economies.

The host of the G20 summit addressed her counterparts on Friday in a hall at the Hamburg convention centre, after video footage showed Trump shaking hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the first face-to-face encounter between the two men.

Merkel was shown talking casually with Putin as the leaders entered the hall, then joining French President Emmanuel Macron in a three-way discussion with Trump, who was seated between Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Britain’s Theresa May.

“We all know the big global challenges and we know that time is pressing,” Merkel told the group.

“And so solutions can only be found if we are ready for compromise and move towards each other, but without – and I stress this – bending too much, because of course we can also state clearly when there are differences.”

So far he has been unable to deliver on that promise amid accusations from U.S. intelligence services that Russia meddled in last year’s presidential election and investigations into the Trump campaign’s links to the country.

Merkel, who is gearing up for a parliamentary election in September, faces the daunting task of steering the G20 towards a consensus on trade, climate change and migration – all

If you have a bus, a train or a plane that is traveling and is filed by wicked passengers, you can smell danger. It may not arrival safely. It is hard to know what a wicked passenger can do. Such a passenger can even shatter the bus, the train or the plane with an explosive and die with others. In fact, there are people who do this.

When I think of this, what comes to my mind is the world in which we live. It is like a bus, a train or a plane taking us to our earthly destiny which is our earthly destination. Because the world has so many wicked passengers aboard its vehicle, the world is as turbulent as it is. The wicked passengers are making life unbearable for many. They are killing, cheating, exploiting, suppressing, violating human rights etc.

Wicked passengers on our earthly plane are…
