President’s Message 會長的話

Season's Greetings

President's message

Another year is coming to an end. It has been a very challenging year worldwide for our global citizens, politicians and rulers.

Many global citizens still living in amazing poverty and other in severe disadvantaged social circumstances. Wars in Middle East , Africa , Ukraine etc, are still burning wildly, creating millions of refugees and social disasters for many families. Ebola epidemic and other diseases are still haunting the people in Africa and around the world.

However I am hopeful with globalisation, internet exchanges of information and a more effective United Nations, we can all made acutely aware of our shortcomings and various serious mistakes made by our rulers and politicians. We hope better solutions will come by to solve many of our humanity problems if we all work together with love for humanity.

United Nations and various major political powers must work together in a better check and balance system, to tackle these immediate humanity problems we are still facing.

History shows us that ideological and religious conflicts can never be resolved by wars and violent confrontations.

It has to be resolved with conviction through better dialogue, communication, mutual respect and understanding, economy assistance and education measures, and diplomatic solution. We are all human and we all have families and friends to take care of. The world is but one nation and its citizens one people.There is nothing that we cannot resolve through better dialogue, communication, mutual respect and understanding, economic assistance and education measures and bit of fraternity love for everyone involved. I hope all the leaders like presidents Xi, Obama, Putin, Modi, Merkel, Hollande, Widodo, Ma Yingjeau, Park and Kim etc, and Prime Ministers like Cameron, Abe, Abbott, Netanyahu. Najib and Lee etc, can all learn from our human historical lessons and make the world a better place for all global citizens by their action and policies in the coming years.

It is therefore heartening to see the restoration of diplomatic relationship between USA and Cuba. Congratulations to Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro. The ideological conflict confines these neighbours to enemy for so many years as have had happened between USA, USSR, CHINA and many other countries in the past. Historical evidence has shown that wars, confrontation, isolation and embargo, may only be bargaining tools for negotiation but not a long term solution. If prolonged, these measures will only make thing worse as people suffer.

There is urgent need to conduct proper and effective dialogue, negotiation and communication between policy makers of the world in particular the leading powers of United Nations. To resolve conflicts, one has to be flexible, give and take with some compromises and face saving measures. A war can be started easily by some crazy personal remark and dislike and uncontrolled power which has no proper check and balance.

In this supposed to be a civilised 21st Century, it is a shame for all of us as human beings and global citizens, to see so much man-made disasters, still being created by ourselves. This is my challenge to all our rulers, politicians and all walks of community leaders, to think of some practical solutions, to make this world a better place for our friends and families, our children and children's children.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone:

A very Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy, peaceful, joyful 2015.

Dr Ka Sing Chua
President

From the Editor

The dispute of Senkaku or Diaoyui islands' ownership between China and Japan is concerning many people in Asia and around the world. On one hand Japan claims that she has the sovereignty over them because they have been under her legal administration since the end of World war 2. While China claims that they belongs to China from the historical perspective. Japan under the Peace Treaty at the end of World War 2, supposed to return the ownership of these islands back to China. But for some unforeseen circumstances, with the eruption of China civil war, China failed to claim them back formally from Japan.

Who actually owns this island is the burning issue.

We hope that it will be resolved one way or the other through peaceful negotiation. Failing that, we suggest that the case be decided in the International Court and tribunal. It is better that way than trying to fight it out militarily. It is not worth having the war to determine the ownership of these islands. As the destruction will be far worse than the benefit for either side. Moreover if a war is declared , its implication will be unmeasurable in term of its influence with the development of China and Japan. Its disastrous effect will not only affect China and Japan but will extend to all Asia countries and the world like Europe and US etc. No one is an island anymore. The war will bring enormous economic disaster, humanity hardship and suffering for many many people, not confined to the Chinese and Japanese.

Cover design for this issue was done by our webmaster James Yin. Thank you James.

Let us hope that the leadership of China and Japan are wiser than that.

Why I support 80-20 and why you should, too!
By Alice S. Huang

"After living in this country for more than 90% of my life, I am still asked questions like, where are you from? and receive comments on how good my English is! Caucasian minority immigrants in the U.S., once they lose their accents, can pass as White Americans; but we Asian American immigrants will not be able to easily blend into this country's majority population. Despite our educational attainments and earnings, both of which are higher than the average American's, we stand out and can easily become targets of racial harassment or discrimination. To avoid this we need to whole-heartedly participate and contribute in every aspect of American society to the extent that we become indispensable and gain enough influence and power in the economic, military, and political realms to protect ourselves.

This is because racial bias, and worse prejudice, is alive and well in the United States. On top of that the populace is prone to hysteria and fear of those who appear to be different. U.S. history is full of examples of racial laws passed by Congress to prevent Blacks, Chinese, or Mexicans from exercising their full civil rights. The internment of Japanese during the Second World War and their loss of homes and property stand out as examples of what can happen due to mass hysteria. Despite the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1968 and declaration of the unconstitutionality of the Anti-Miscegenation laws in 1967, these rights are not always fully enforced. More recently, after 9/11, besides the continued debates in the U.S. about limiting immigration, there were even questions concerning the rights of naturalized citizens and whether they could be jailed or deported without trial.

As Asian Americans most of us are still focused on our individual families and remain comfortable in the protective social niches that are isolated from mainstream America. Look around us. We cannot ignore that: (1) our children, who volunteered to join the armed forces to fight for the U.S., are often harassed to the extent that they have resorted to suicide as the only way to escape their tormentors; (2) our children's racial profile rather than their capabilities determines their entrance into the college of their choice; (3) we are too slowly entering the power structure of professions compared with those of us who fully qualify due to our training and capabilities; and (4) increasingly there is open resentment of recent wealthy Chinese immigrants who purchase desirable real estate or have the poor taste to build "McMansions".

Although we all hope that our and our progeny's contributions will be gradually recognized and rewarded, we cannot totally ignore the possibility of a sudden reversal of fortune for Asian Americans. Such a reversal could easily happen if the relationship between the governments of the United States and any one of the Asian countries increase in animosity or distrust leading to open warfare. As a group we should accept that self-promotion is an acceptable behavior in successful democracies. That is where 80-20 becomes so important. Unlike other Asian American associations and societies, it is not focused on just educational and cultural exchange. It promotes Asian Americans through political action as its primary goal and secondarily to prevent the stereotyping and denigration of Asian Americans through tasteless venues such as entertainment and in a variety of other circumstances.

Why is 80-20 trying so hard to raise financial support? Only with a strong and sustained financial base will we be able to attract a professional staff dedicated to educate and involve Asian Americans of all ages in the democratic political process and provide the tools for self-interested activism. We need to forge a strong coalition with other Asian American organizations so that by strength in numbers we can increase our political influence. Staff is needed to engage in wide surveillance of activities that prevent the advancement of Asian Americans, make these activities known, and solicit and coordinate appropriate action to counter these activities. This is the right time for 80-20 to succeed, and if does not, it will be because we are still too provincial to see the opportunity we have to provide future security for ourselves and our children.

For all the above reasons, I have directed my main philanthropic efforts recently to 80-20, hoping that a strong financial base in its educational arm will bring together more like-minded Asian Americans who are fully aware of racial history and the unpredictable nature of human society. Gradually, through political and civic education, my hope is that 80-20 as a political action committee will be able to gain strength and influence to fight for justice and fairness for ALL Asian Americans and at the same time educate a cadre of Asian American leaders who will dedicate themselves to being selfless public servants and exemplars of what we can offer to this country.

Why does 80-20 need to raise money? Beside what have been mentioned above.
it also needs to forge a strong and lasting coalition with other Asian American organizations. Join us and help us to accomplish all this by donating as generously as you can." (The End)

钓鱼岛值得一争,但不值得一战

中国与日本由钓鱼岛引发的争端不断升级,大有一发不可收拾之势,有人说双方非打不可。因为双方继续固守各自的“强硬”立场,如有误判或意气用事,擦枪走火就极有可能。

日本与中国有千丝万缕的文化渊源,难道双方真的不能以文明之理来服人,一定要用“野蛮”的“武力”手段一决高下吗?

依笔者之见,退一步海阔天空,中日要重启理性对话的大门。即便真的谈不下去,也应该考虑让国际法庭来裁决。

如果国与国之间有什么争端不能解决,完全可以提交给国际法庭来和平解决。“法治”胜过“武治”,这应该是每一个有远见的领导人都知道的道理。我们已经看到,在法治不健全的国家,企图用武力来统治的政权最终都引火自焚。叙利亚就是崇尚“武治”,把一个好好的国家弄得四分五裂。

一个国家要长治久安,必须以法律来治国而不是以武力来治国,武力只能用来维护真理、惩罚犯罪的人。这是人类历史文明的基石。如果用武力来决定谁对谁错,那么胜者不一定是对的一方,而败者不一定是错的一方。这不但解决不了问题,反而会加深矛盾,搞得两败俱伤,都没有好结果。

中日如果开战,将影响整个亚洲甚至整个世界经济的命脉,世界第二和第三大经济国首当其冲,承受得起吗?

两国如果真的谈不好如何解决钓鱼岛的主权问题,大不了告上国际法庭,各自引经据典辩论公堂,看看最后真理在哪一方,哪一方才是钓鱼岛的真正主人。

我认为,钓鱼岛值得中日在国际公堂联合国主持下力争、理争,但不值得双方为之一战!



Dear Kasing,
This edition of the Huaren magazine is by far the best of any production I have seen globally.
Obviously, the standard of the magazine, as judged by the caliber of the authors and the content, is sophisticated and intellectual, has jumped leaps and bounds.
Please accept my personal congratulations to a publication, now in the leading edge of the Chinese Diaspora. Keep the standard up and keep it coming.
Congratulations, once again and well done.
