Op 29 april 1967 weigerde Mohammed Ali in Vietnam te gaan vechten

Lode Vanoost - Op 29 april is het 50 jaar geleden dat Mohammed Ali weigerde zijn militaire dienstplicht te vervullen, om in Vietnam te gaan vechten. “Zij hebben me nooit 'nxyyxr' genoemd, zij hebben mij nooit gelyncht”. Deftig Amerika was woedend over zoveel zwarte assertiviteit. Ali verloor vier jaar van zijn carrière, maar kreeg volledig gelijk van de geschiedenis, werd de grootste bokser aller tijden én een icoon voor de eeuwigheid.

Toen Mohammed Ali (1942-2016) in 1967 werd opgeroepen voor zijn legerdienst had hij zijn 'slavennaam' Cassius Clay al een tijd veranderd. Hij was moslim geworden en kondigde reeds een jaar op voorhand aan dat hij zou weigeren naar Vietnam te gaan. Lees meer + video.

Syria: Damascus explosions caused by Israeli missile attack

Syria says the explosion that rocked Damascus earlier on Thursday was caused by several Israeli missiles on a military base southwest of the capital.

The Syrian army said the missiles were launched from the occupied lands that targeted the airbase near the Damascus international airport. According to the Syrian army, the attack caused material damages, saying the aggression will not prevent Damascus from its fight against terrorism. It added the attack is a desperate attempt to boost the morale of terrorists who are collapsing as a result of the armed forces' strikes.

Earlier Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said the incident is totally consistent with the regime’s policy.

Thousands of anti-NATO protesters have marched through the streets of the German capital Berlin, demanding that the German armed forces end their operations in foreign countries.
