Christians and Muslims resist together, resisting attempts to 'divide and conquer'

One of the most common myths is that all Palestinians are Muslims. However, Christians have a long history in Palestine, and they have been oppressed along with their Muslim neighbors. Recently, Keren Batiyov and I had the opportunity to interview Naim Ateek, founder of Sabeel in East Jerusalem, which seeks to unite all religions in seeking peace and justice. Take a look:…

The US Consideration of Military Action Against Iran-Dangerous to the Future of America

Military force shouldn’t be ruled out as a response to an Iranian assassination plot on U.S. soil, the top House Republican on intelligence issues said on ABC’s “This Week.”



“I don’t think you should take it off the table,” said Representative Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Rogers said other options would include rallying the international community against Iran or taking action against Iranian operatives in Iraq. Noticeably…

Playing with fire: Gulf Arabs and Israelis tacitly explore cooperation amid Israeli diplomatic tsunami

By James M. Dorsey

Israeli-Palestinian Conflict-Courageous Peace Leaders Wanted

In the lull after the media frenzy around Irene, it is a good time to reflect on the Israeli-Palestinian situation. In a few weeks, the Palestinians will submit a resolution to the UN General Assembly that asks that Palestine be declared a new nation-state. Regardless of where you might stand on this issue, there are a lot of practical problems with the resolution. Besides the fact that the US will veto it in the Security Council, it is politically meaningless as long as Hamas and Fatah…

USA and Iran: Pride and Prejudice

USA and Iran: Pride and prejudice.

 

The most frequent question to me during my three visits to Iran was: How can we convince the West that our country is not going to produce nuclear weapons? The question I hear in Europe and USA is:  When will Iran have nuclear weapons? There seems to be a need for a dialogue. No one wants a war. It might still happen and may escalate into a nuclear genocide.

 

Iran's nuclear program -…

Should the IDF (or any Military) Create a Conflict Resolution Commando Unit?

My latest is an out-of-the-box piece co-written with Andrea Bartoli (Director of the S-CAR at GMU) which asks:



"Imagine back in 2010 if instead of masked men with guns, trained for intense warfare at sea, boarding a ship in the dead of night, the IDF had dispatched an elite unit of conflict resolution specialists. Could the tragedy at sea been averted?" …

seeded by Shaheen Sultan Dhanji - Imperial Eye on Pakistan

By Andrew Gavin Marshall

 

Introduction

 

As the purported assassination of Osama bin Laden has placed the focus on Pakistan, it is vital to assess the changing role of Pakistan in broad geostrategic terms, and in particular, of the changing American strategy toward Pakistan. The recently reported assassination was a propaganda ploy aimed at targeting Pakistan. To understand this, it is necessary to…

Denial: A River in Egypt...

 

Denial: A River in Egypt...

By: Firouzeh Afsharnia

“Israel would never pull back to its 1967 borders.”  There you have it -- straight from the horse’s mouth.  After decades of two step tango around multi version road maps drafted by peace players of all walks – quartets, duets, dissonant coalitions and tone deaf power brokers -- what has always been evident to the rest of us is now out in the open in the official chambers of power. Israel has no intention of giving…

New Romeo& Juliet….. Arab-Israeli inter-marriages

“Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet”.

In his wildest dreams, Fareed never imagined that these lines from Juliet’s lips in the final scenes of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet would perfectly describe his situation.

 

As protecting my source`s rights, I would only be referring to him by his first name, Fareed, 35, and thousands of Egyptian men, had never imagined that an act as normal as…
