REVIEW OF IFLAC ANTHOLOGY 2016 BY SUSANA ROBERTS:
Dear Professor Ada Aharoni, Founder and Chief Editor of the IFLAC ANTHOLOGY 2016,
Congratulations for this great book “ANTI-TERROR AND PEACE ANTHOLOGY,” the monumental product of your great project carried out by a beautiful team of people you were in charge of, as Chief Editor. The cover makes a big impact not only in its brilliant design but in its deep content, a book mutually contributed to by many pacifists in the world. This book will mark an important step in the history of the Culture of Peace among people and nations in the world.
Those who inhabit America and grow day by day in understanding that peace is possible, are searching to find new horizons where the word is a fertile bridge, where races, creeds and traditions are joined without differences, where brotherhood is remarkable, as in this beautiful book. This Anthology marks the current fight against terrorism that is so widespread nowadays. We used to say “enough wars”, “down with the arms”, now it is urgent to create literature focused on human risk and the preservation of life. This unique, powerful Anthology gives strength to help all mankind against the demonic scourge of horrific times. It is an essential book, and it should be widely used in all educational classrooms all over the world.
It is a book of eternal flight overcoming the terrorist dangers in the crucial time we are living in. The Anthology uses not only excellent articles and stories, but moreover moving poetry, Haiku and art. It awakes the reader to a purer global awareness, and it places itself as a defender of all suffering human beings, in the East as in the West, with representative authors from all the continents of the world. It is an excellent book that embraces consciences to awaken others to love Peace and to condemn, ban and abolish Terror, War and Violence. The book is written and edited with a high-level of global literary expertise, expressing the depth of the authors’ and poets hearts. It is clear that Ada Aharoni and Vijay Kumar Roy have chosen and accepted for this crucial Anthology only materials that are on a high level culturally, literary, intellectually and morally.
My warm congratulations for this wonderful Anti-Terror and Peace Anthology, it is my pride to be part of it. From the depth of my being I send to the Anthology and to all the people who have contributed to it, all my blessings, from this soil in southern Argentina, as IFLAC Ambassador of Peace, and as delegate of Senate Nacion Argentina (Unesco-Unicef) with the Roedrich’ flag that protects during times of terror and war as of peace.
THIS GREAT AND CRUCIAL ANTI-TERROR IFLAC ANTHOLOGY CAN BE ORDERED FROM AMAZON KDP. IT SHOULD BE READ BY ALL AND ACTED UPON BY ALL TO HELP SAVE OUR PLANET FROM TERRORISM.

A REVIEW BY FRANCISCO GOMES DE MATOS, A PEACE LINGUIST, RECIFE, BRAZIL
This is a commendable,inspiring,pioneering volume. There is an Introduction by Chief editor Ada Haroni and a Preface by Editor Vijay Kumar Joy.Those introductory texts are followed by
8 articles,3 short stories,2 interviews,51 poems,7 contribution to Kaiku Contest, a section on IFLAC and a list of 4 artists.The articles focus on several dimensions of Anti-Terrorism and
Peace: the psychology of suicide bombers, lethal ideological brainwashing, technology for creating a better world, terrorism as evil, using communication to suppress terrorism,
advancing the israeli-palestinian peace, the end of terrorism as a global concern,creating a just and peaceful world. The poem focus on a universe of issues as expressed by voices
from many countries.This poetic treasury offers many memorable thoughts. Here are some of my favorites:
“Deluded,brainwashed young suicide bomber _ they lied to you when they brainwashed you with sleek murderous words “,
“We are all flow4ers in the great Wilderness of Life _ Here today, gone tomorrow”
“Why innocent children dyring in war ?”
“Are there resources for reconstructidon of a nation and reintegration of people into the society ?”
“Everyone wants to achieve peace .Peace amidst a world in chaos ”
“One day, Humankind, terror/violence you will no longer fear. The threat of terror and war will completely disappear”
“hope not to hate”
“There is not a more delightful sensation than a full reconciliation”
“My pen for changing evil minds and installing Peace”
“Pray for peace to prevail in the land. For love,mercy and to live hand in hand ”
“Love heals and triumphs”
“We are on the way to help humanity”
“Bury guns and the war. Plant Roses ”
“What´s wrong if we believe in Loving the creatures of the Creator, as true worshiop of the Creator ?”
“Peace survives on Love, Compassion,Brotherhood and sacrifice ”
This timely book provides food for thought and poetic PEACaction . May the authors` voices echo everywhere !
REVIEW OF IFLAC ANTHOLOGY 2016 BY LIDIA CHIARELLI:
Federico Garcia Lorca in one of his poems wrote
“Poesía es lo imposible
now I think that Professor Ada Aharoni with the publication of theIFLAC Anti-terror and Peace Anthology has achieved this wonderful result: what seemed impossibile has become possible.
She has drawn cultures together and peoples of different ethnicities have cooperated on literary and artistic levels with mutual respect and appreciation.
Poems, but also haikus, articles, short stories, interviews and art lead us on the road of Peace and give us the hope that we will overcometerrorism.
It is a real honor to be part of this book which has been edited with a very high level of literary expertise.
Thanks to Ada Aharoni and Vijay Kumar Roy for their commitment to a better world.
