We Can Win the War

By Daniel Patrick Welch

I love the smell of quagmire in the morning. My, but it takes you back, doesn't it? The only thing left to say is that there is "light at the end of the tunnel." But everything else has already begun to play itself out. We have even seen the resurrection of that Orwellian mantra "...

The Olive Harvest

By Mike Odetalla

Olive trees have always held a special place in my heart and my memories. The olive tree itself, as well as the groves, is an integral part of the very fabric of Palestinian life. To this day my mom sends me olive oil that was pressed from olives which are hand picked from the ancient olive trees that grow on...

By Roger Harrison

It was an Afghan donkey that gave the game away. If it hadn't bolted, Yvonne Ridley and her two guides would have made it out over the Afghan border and back into Pakistan.

Some weeks previously, Yvonne Ridley was chief reporter for the Sunday Express in London. Like hundreds of other journalists,...

Deep Roots of Islamophobia
By James Brooks

America's long festering animus toward Arabs and Islam has finally arrived. From black tie affairs to your local barbecue, you can see it in the U.S.A. You can hear it, too, whispering in the White House and booming from Capitol Hill. Language that would get people fired if...

Learning to be Stupid in the Culture of Cash

By Luciana Bohne

You might think that reading about a Podunk University's English teacher's attempt to connect the dots between the poverty of American education and the gullibility of the American public may be a little trivial, considering we've embarked on the first, openly-confessed imperial adventure of...

South Florida reps push for war, but who are they pushing for?
By Bob Norman

With a manner strongly reminiscent of fellow Brooklyn native John McEnroe arguing a line call, Robert Wexler has made himself one of the nation's loudest critics of President Bush. The liberal congressman from Boca Raton has made more...

I Love My Brother

By Adam Maor, Translated by Nurit Peled-Elhanan

I encounter a lot of difficulties trying to explain my refusal to serve in the Israeli army, to unravel the route by which my conscience instructed me that serving in today's IDF is contradictory to most of my values, and to describe the process that made me reach the...

Thinking Out Loud

By Sara Bokker

Two and a half years ago, as I sat in my international relations class at the local university, it hit me. It was as if someone had punched me in the stomach. I couldn't breathe. The room was spinning. "I pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands one nation, under God, with...

Islamic 'Extremism' May Save Western Civilization

By Mark Glenn

It would shock and possibly even offend most Americans to learn the truth that the reason they are here, their power, their affluence and position in the world is directly because of the Islamic religion and the Arab culture. That's right, the very "ragheads" and "Hajis"(as Limbaugh, Liddy...

An Inquiry into the T-word

By Yamin Zakaria

 The recent deployment of the term of "foreign terrorists" with regards to the Iraqi resistance movement by the illegal "occupying forces" is perplexing. Those fighters who have come from other Arab/Muslim countries have close ties with the people of Iraq by a common language, religion,...

Life is Beautiful

By Mike Odetalla

A couple of days ago, I woke in the middle of the night to terrible pains in my upper stomach. I had forgotten to take my daily dose of my medicine and now I had to pay the price. The pains are such that it actually hurts more when I lay down. The only way to find relief is to stand up and walk. The pains...

Junk History

By Mark Glenn

As someone who taught history for many years, I cannot describe how irritating it is to hear that Abraham Lincoln fought the "American Civil War" in order to free the slaves, that FDR saved this country from the Great Depression, that the first amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to...

Israel, We Bless Thee

By Mark Glenn

Today, while driving through town, I wound up behind a minivan that had a big sticker on the back. The sticker had an Israeli flag in the middle of it, and under it the quotation from the book of Genesis that reads "I will bless those who bless thee."

I would like to take this time to list my own...

He Has My Eyes

By Mark Glenn

"Isn't he beautiful?" asked my friend Charles. "He has my eyes, look." Sure enough, the newborn baby had my friends' eyes. "He's so beautiful," he exclaimed. "He's perfect."
