Arab Spring Lessons Learned


Arab Revolutions against the dictatorship regimes in Tunisia and then Egypt and the success in forcing Ben Ali and Mubarak to step down inspired Arab Nations and encouraged uprisings in Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and other countries.

I believe more regimes will fall down sooner or later as those dictators has no ethics.

what I'm blogging here about is not the Arab Countries it is how the Israeli Youth were inspired by the Arab Youth Revolution (Arab Spring).

In Israel most of the government budget goes to the Military and  Illegal settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Israeli Youth are facing financial difficulties to rent or mortgage finance. Those Israeli youth serve in the army pay tax work for long hours and suffer out this miserable financial situation.

A simple question was raised by those youth. Why we pay tax and secure those who live in illegal  settlements , don't serve in the army, don't pay tax and don't even work?

Israeli youth started the upraising with the below headlines:

The cost of building a house in Settlements in West Bank and Jerusalem is triple the cost of building a flat in Telaviv.
The security, maintenance and running cost of those settlements is also triple the cost of houses and flats in Telaviv the most expensive place in Israel.

The last Israeli youth demonstration had over 500K.

The Israeli government is encouraging building settlements in West Bank and Jerusalem knowing that it is paying a huge budget and the cost is triple. Those settlements are illegal by the International Law and the UN security counsel resolutions.

Israeli Government have approved to the World that the Political Leadership in Israel that always comes from the Army Generals are not into Peace and they don't believe in peace.

Peace is a threat for those people who will lose power when peace prosperity raises in the middle east.

Let us all pray that those Israeli Youth can do something in the Israeli next elections and take over.

Publish to Wordpress using JSON API plugin and Coldfusion

I was using Postie to automatically publish to wordpress blog. I was searching a better method of publishing using soap api or json api. I found an excellent json plugin that can be used to publish posts and comments to wordpress.
Please follow the below step by step, this code will let you publish automatically for froma different interface to wordpress rather than using postie or email.
