Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.

Empire Strikes Back

Christianity, a movement originally started by a Jewish man born & bred in the 'Middle East', roughly 500 years before Mohammed - partly in response to oppression by corrupt religious authories and their imperial sponsors - today faces renewed oppression in its land of birth.

This follows reports of an unjust decree by a Saudi Arabian cleric, Abdulaziz Al al-Shaikh, that all churches should be destroyed in the region.

Which leads me to remember this, the British greeting for Saudi royalty a few years ago (and an interesting discussion over their malign influence in the West).
