Six Hearts and Counting: Food, Travel and ... Fairuz

By Steve Gillick, published on Mar 8, 2013

A friend mentioned a Middle Eastern grocery store that sells fresh baba ghanoush, olives, pita and hummus. Having spent some time in the Middle East, I was curious and as soon as I entered the store I was transformed back to my journeys in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Tunisia and Turkey. The unique smells of the food and pastries wended their way through my mind and vivid flashbacks of exploring each of those countries popped into my brain like flashbulbs and stirred up my endorphins to no end! But the crowning moment in this journey of the senses came when I was chatting with one of the staff... (more)

A Desolation called Democracy

By Anastasia , published on Feb 21, 2013

...not anticipate that America casualties would be greater after ‘victory’ than before. Above all, it did not anticipate being involved in a sectarian war. It was all so one dimensional: a deposed dictator, a grateful people, a new democracy. The real consequences have been a more unstable Middle East, an increased danger of terrorism, a growing threat to the civil liberties of the democratic nations, and a widespread distrust of the United States and England among the Islamic countries.

In response to a deteriorating strategic situation Donald Rumsfeld, the then US Secretary of... (more)

Eyeless in Gaza

By Anastasia , published on Nov 23, 2012

... website a couple of years ago; The trial has been held. In seeking to live in peace Israel has constantly been forced to go to war; it has no other choice. No matter what they do they have been judged; they stand forever guilty. The West can no longer stand up for itself let alone this brave oasis of liberty in the Middle East. I’ve never been an uncritical supporter of Zionism. I thought expanding settlements on Arab land was a mistake; I still do. No matter; today I’m an Israeli, which, to paraphrase the speech of JFK in Berlin, must be the proudest boast in the world of freedom.

Islamists are Murdering Christians in Syria

By Anastasia , published on Jul 8, 2012

Are you following events in Syria? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton certainly is. She recently berated Russia and China for the tacit support they have given to the beleaguered regime of President Bashar Assad.

She was talking at a conference held in Paris by the so-called Friends of Syria group, which has promised to massively increase aid to the rebel forces. There she was, Dame Hillary, waving her verbal wand, threatening to cast spells on the Russians and Chinese unless they get off the sidelines and support the “legitimate aspirations” of the people of Syria.

UNESCO to be hurt by US withholding of funds

By TonyBerkman, published on Nov 2, 2011

...be negative for U.S. interests and influence, they have no intention of intervening to change the law. To the contrary, several top senators in both parties told say they support the policy and will work to enforce it, despite the consequences."

Given the importance of Peace in the Middle East it is understandable why the U.S. would not want to change this law. It is Peace in the Middle East that is of utmost importance to achieving a peaceful world. There are many in the U.S., Canada and Israel who would be pleased though if the U.S. withdrew completely from the "puppet" run... (more)

Are French Voters on to Something?

By Jack_Popiel, published on Oct 24, 2011

...with no end in sight.

Populations are gradually becoming aware that something is fundamentally wrong with the global economic order. As a result, the old opposition between Right and Left is morphing into a vertical conflict between the global elites and the masses.

The Middle East is already in turmoil. Next year key elections are scheduled in the Unites States, Russia and France, and China has its 10-year change of leadership.

The official scenario is that economic problems can be contained until the new governments are in place.

Against that there is... (more)

Why Do Europeans Hate Israel So Much?

By ranfuchs, published on Feb 12, 2010

I have just returned from a couple of weeks in Europe – a continent in distress. The financial crisis is felt in every city in Europe, and may result in default on debt of some of the European countries. It may even lead to the collapse of the EU altogether. Iran’s plans to continue with its nuclear program will soon put Europe in the range of the Iranian nuclear warheads. The rise of extreme Islam in Europe threatens to change the face of Europe and the European culture forever. Many real problems that may threaten the European lifestyle, and yet anti-Israel sentiment is still prevalent.

Dubai's Shame Lies in Gaza

By Dan Ehrlich, published on Nov 28, 2009

...own people, remain loyal and steadfast to their tribe and religion, venting all their hatred on Israel. That’s because they know the day will come when they will fulfil the original 1948 promise to destroy the infidel.

In a world where living space has become a premium, most of the Middle East is still under populated, except for the Lebanon, Israel and Gaza. Beach front property, even here, is in great demand. The idea that a small, yet heavily populated county such as Israel should make territorial concessions is absurd given the amount of Arab land and money available to help... (more)
