UNITED NATIONS Authentic San Jose Sharks Jersey , March 21 (Xinhua) -- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon on Saturday called upon all UN member states to learn from past tragedies to combat racism in today's world.


"Every day, people of all ages endure hatred, injustice and humiliation because of their skin color, descent, national or ethnic origin, or other supposedly racial characteristics Authentic Pittsburgh Penguins Jersey ," the secretary-general said in his message to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which is observed annually on March 21.


"The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is an opportunity to renew our commitment to building a world of justice and equality where xenophobia and bigotry do not exist," Ban said.


The day aims to remind people of racial discrimination's negative consequences. It also encourages people to remember their obligation and determination to combat racial discrimination.


"We must learn the lessons of history and acknowledge the profound damage caused by racial discrimination," the secretary- general said. "That means carefully preserving the memory of historical wrongs so we may use our knowledge to eradicate prejudice and teach tolerance, non-discrimination and respect for diversity everywhere and for all."


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination and the launch of the International Decade for People of African Descent.


"In the past 50 years, there has been progress in the fight against racism and racial discrimination Authentic Philadelphia Flyers Jersey ," he said. "We have seen the end of colonialism, the dismantling of apartheid and the rise of a global movement for equality."


"Yet, as history and current events attest, racial discrimination still presents a clear danger to people and communities in all regions," he added.


On March 21, 1960 Authentic Ottawa Senators Jersey , police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid "pass laws."


Proclaiming the Day in 1966, the UN General Assembly called on the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination.


In 1979, the General Assembly adopted a program of activities to be undertaken during the second half of the Decade for Action to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination. On that occasion, the General Assembly decided that a week of solidarity with the peoples struggling against racism and racial discrimination Authentic New York Islanders Jersey , beginning on March 21, would be organized annually in all States.


"Lasting peace can only be built on the premise that all people have equal rights and dignity -- regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, social or other status," Ban said. "To that end Authentic New York Rangers Jersey , I urge all nations to ratify the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, to promote historical accuracy and put in place robust policies and laws that will end all forms of discrimination as enshrined in the Convention."

CAIRO, April 2 (Xinhua) -- The success in handling Tuesday's non-terror hijack has triggered massive thumbs up, but piled up the gloom over Egypt's tourism, a pillar for its withering economy.


Egyptian Seif-Eddin Mostafa, 59 Authentic New Jersey Devils Jersey , hijacked an EgyptAir Airbus 320 on Tuesday as it took off from Alexandria en route to Cairo after threatening the crew with a fake explosive belt and forced them to land in Cyprus's Larnaca airport.


All the 81 passengers, including 21 foreigners, were freed in Cyprus and the kidnapper was arrested the same day.


Egyptian official reports said the incident was not terrorism-related and the hijacker was "a fraudulent and a forger" who faced relevant charges in lawsuit cases.


The old man had been sentenced to one year in jail but escaped amid the 2011 political turmoil, then went back to prison in January 2014 and was released last year.


Having a criminal record without being wanted in an ongoing lawsuit does not ban a person from traveling.


In fact, the hijack was more like a farce with odd and even hilarious elements, just like the old man's obsession with the will to go to Cyprus to see his ex-wife and daughters as he couldn't get a visa.


A picture of the glassy-eyed hijacker and a smiling British hostage has been widespread on the Internet. A rescued man Authentic Nashville Predators Jersey , with a facebook user name "AbdAllah El Ashmawy", narrated some details on board.


He praised that Egypt airlines crew were really professional, especially the ladies flight attendants who managed to keep smiling all through the flight.


"I can see one of them crying at her front seat but once she stands up again she keeps her smile just to calm people," he said.


An egyptian decided to call his family and friends one by one, and till the plane was about to land, the man was still saying loudly to the phone "God Authentic Montreal Canadiens Jersey , I'm abducted!"


Another guy called his wife to tell her about some hidden case dough and his wife asked him to repeat the bank name and account number, totally ignoring the hijack thing.


A man was sleeping and woke up to be informed of landing in Cyprus, and his response was "Why Cyprus? I will miss my connection!"


Although the hijacker hasn't made substantial harms, the divorced man, reported in a bad psychological state, might not have realized the stupid behavior would have traumatized his motherland's efforts to revive the ailing tourism industry.


"It was not a terrorist act at all. Nonetheless Authentic Minnesota Wild Jersey , it will leave a negative impression about Egypt's air security," said Bashir Abdel-Fattah, political expert and researcher at the Cairo-based Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies.


Egyptian TV showed the video where the hijacker was thoroughly checked at Alexandria's airport after passing through the security screening machine along with all the other flight passengers, and no explosives or prohibite.
