A New USA and Tom Cruise not welcome in Germany

Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi has said there was no future for individual African nation states. He urged leaders attending next month's African Union summit in Ghana to decide to create a United States of Africa.

Would you want to be a citizen of the United States of Africa? Can individual countries get over their differences and does more unite than divides?

Yesterday we wanted to talk about the US's democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his attack on some right-wing evangelical leaders in the United States. Mr Obama says the leaders have exploited and politicised religious beliefs in an effort to divide the nation. We were asking you if some religious leaders have 'hijacked faith'? Would you like to hear that debate on the programme today?

Yesterday, we were asking you in Cologne, if you were one of the people out on the streets to protest about the planned construction of one of Europe's biggest Mosques. You got in touch and we were all ready to get you talking, then our infamous phone system in the studio, gave up the will to live. Is it still a big talking point in Germany? You tell us.

Or have Germans moved on to talk about how their government has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist. The German government do not recognise it as a church, saying it masquerades as a religion to make money, a charge that Scientology leaders reject.

As Paris breaks from her shackles and emerges blinking into the sunlight from jail, do you have any suggestions on how she should readjust to life of the outside?

And a few weeks ago we were asking for your suggestions on Tony Blair's new job. It's widely speculated that he may be named Middle East envoy today, the last day that he holds the job of British Prime Minister.

And Bruce highlighted the Scottish paper who tomorrow will publish a 'good news' edition. Boring publicity stunt? Or are you really wanting more good news stories? Should we at World Have Your Say be doing more?
