Now it was "the left", to expand this to a fuf (one half) parties system. 5.15 million votes received the left; each ninth wahler voted for this party, which exists in its current form only since the summer of 2007, but not without prehistory. This consists of two strangely linked strangen and is important for any assessment of programs and politics.

In the first free-chosen bundestag of 1949, a left, a communist party was represented, 1.3 million votes and 5.7 percent share of the kpd to move into parliament. But already with the next election 1953 she failed: her defamation of the popular uprising in the gdr as "fascist coup" reduced them to 600.000 votes and 2.2 percent share.

The koran as a source of own decision-making and base of civil law – a conversation with the syrian koranexegated muhammad shahrour

As "very slippery ground" the egyptian islam researcher nasr hamid abu zaid defined the koran. His syrian colleague muhammad shahrour sees itself as a matter of principle – but it will take out that the entire book may only be discourse. Rather, he resorts the large slip loss in the lack of border limiting between absolute and human authority (god’s word vs. Its interpretation).

The mummy 2 does not save special effects

Who stands this summer in the cinema, wondering what success in hollywood is measured. The stamp of the satisfaction on the part of the film studios certainly receives every movie, of which a continuation is turned. And this year we expect some copies like "rush hour 2" and "dr.Dolittle 2".
