Islamophobia: Right-wing fundamentalists of Europe

A few years ago, the respected Cambridge scholar T J Winter, also known by his Muslim name of Abdal Hakim Murad, gave a fascinating lecture to Humanities staff and students at the University of Leicester. The title was "Islam and the threat of the West", turning on its head the more usual - then and now - "Islam and the threat to the West".It was a novel approach, which, in a nutshell, illustrated that, historically, aggression has been directed more from Europe to the Muslim world than the…See More

Refugees of Palestine

Palestinian refugees and internally displaced Palestinians represent the largest and longest-standing case of forced displacement in the world today. With the Nakba (or ‘Catastrophe’), the destruction of Palestine and the massive displacement of Palestinians by Israel in 1948, two out of every five refugees in the world are Palestinian. There are approximately seven million Palestinian refugees and 450,000 internally displaced persons, representing 70% of the entire Palestinian population…See More

A Deep Rift Opens In Israel As The Coming Storm Approaches

It is big news that Meir Dagan, the former Director of the Mossad, has warned the people of Israel and the world that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are not to be trusted and that they will probably attack Iran in September. One of the chief aims of such an attack is to forestall Palestinian efforts at the UN in September to achieve state independence, and radically change the global conversation away from Palestine towards the reality of a world…See More

Popular committees continue the revolution

As dark clouds of smoke billowed out to sea, a blazing red sun set to end a day of street battles with no telling what was to come. On 28 January in Alexandria almost every police station in the city was on fire, state security trucks were upside down and ablaze and every uniformed element of the Interior Ministry had disappeared. The atmosphere was rich with a sense of triumph and an equal, if not overpowering, feeling of dread.But Alexandrians mobilized immediately. Come nightfall the…See More

Israel: This sick glee in the face of a terrorist attack

Posted on July 25, 2011 at 7:25pm 0 Comments

Many Israelis find “educational” value in horrifying attacks, as long as they happen to others…

Following the terrorist attack in Norway, before the Israeli media had to reluctantly admit it was actually carried out by a Norwegian neo-Nazi, the media, aside from Haaretz, kept its readers in the dark about the killers’ pro-Israeli agenda, the comment section on the internet sites was filled not with expressions of horror and sadness, but with virulent attacks on Muslims…

Palestinian refugees in Syria: For democracy!

Posted on July 23, 2011 at 2:50pm 0 Comments

While stripped of their nationality in Jordan and living in Lebanon in the worst socio-economic conditions of any in their community, Palestinian refugees in Syria have long enjoyed comparably better circumstances, including equal rights with citizens.

But in a development that challenges a central pillar of the Syrian regime’s legitimacy, Palestinians in Syria are beginning to turn against a dictatorship that for decades used its claims of resisting Israel and fighting for…

Iran: Against the Kurds

Posted on July 21, 2011 at 4:19pm 0 Comments

Units of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard have crossed the border into Iraq. Their mission - to attack, disable and destroy military bases belonging to PEJAK, a Kurdish militant group. Accusing PEJAK of being a terrorist organization, Tehran has taken it upon themselves to do what the US backed Iraqi regime refuses to do – crack down on armed militants on the Iraqi side of the Iranian border.

The Kurds have been fighting for their independence and sovereignty since their nation of…

Boycott the state, not just the settlements!

Posted on July 20, 2011 at 4:44pm 0 Comments

Recent legislation passed in the Israeli Knesset, which many people call the "Anti-BDS" bill, has raised a number of questions about a rising tide of "fascism" in Israel. This language is not only used by Palestinian critics, who have long borne the brunt of Israel's undemocratic…

I am trying to promote the Arc plan and and a discussion at;

http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/forum/topics/the-arc  

The Arc

 The arc A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State produced by the Rand Corporation. It is a giant leap in the right direction into finding a peaceful solution in the Palestinian-Israeli crisis. It is a ten year plan to develop the West Bank one day connecting it to Gaza. It addresses many of the problems the people of Palestine face in forming a viable state. Only with a prospers Palestinian society that resembles the society of the State of Israel will the people of both societies have any real security. 

They spent more than 3 million dollars and four years in the development of this plan. It is a thirty-three billion dollar plan over ten years that addresses the Palestinian issues of transportation, housing, education, commerce, justice and the contiguity of the State of Palestine. It is a very comprehensive plan creating a clear image of a much better way of life for the Palestinian people. Restoring their dignity and hope for a better future for their children is the best first steps towards peace.

This is the link to an 8 minute and 35 minute video outlining the Arc.The Arc: A Formal Structure For a Palestinian State | RAND 

http://www.rand.org/multimedia/video/2008/08/26/the_arc.html 

Here is a link to the Rand Corporation’s web page to the Arc Reach Brief. There is a link to the full outline version of the Arc at the bottom of the page.

There is no way to peace, peace is the way. The Arc is the way for long term peace to become a reality in the Palestinian/Israeli crisis. The challenges are to make the Arc a reality that more people can see, as well as working out the full implementation of the Arc’s plan. The earlier more people get behind a plan like the Arc the sooner it could become a reality. Everyone should write to their elected representatives letting them know about the Arc and your support of the plan. Who could not support such a plan of a way to peace as the arc. Global Crier
