  • Meng's case continues to haunt usReuel S. Amdur
    June 23, 2020

    On May 27, Justice Heather Holmes ruled that the American request for extradition of Meng Wanzhou could continue, as the charge of fraud is a valid basis for such action. The implication is for probably years in additional appeals and wrangling. As a result, we can foresee that Chinese custody of two Canadians, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovig, will continue throughout the process of Meng's legal procedures, leaving them to Xi Jinping's not-so-tender-mercies. They were taken into custody in retaliation for her being freed from custody on tight bail conditions. All but forgotten by his government, Imam Huseyin Celil, a Uyghur human rights defender and Canadian citizen, has been held in China since 2006.

    On June 18, President Donald Trump issued an executive order authorizing sanctions against International Criminal Court staff investigating possible war crimes committed by U.S. forces and CIA agents in Afghanistan. The court is also investigating the Afghan government and the Taliban in the same regard. Sanctions apply as well to families of the staff and could both include being barred from the U.S. and sanctions of an economic nature.

    Some have argued that a prisoner swap for Meng Wanzhou would be a capitulation that would encourage China to seize more Canadians in order to get their way. Two problems with such a reading of the situation.

  • Ford's Nursing home gift: To whom?Reuel S. Amdur
    July 23, 2020

    The COVID-19 crisis has thrown a glaring light on the long-standing problems in long-term care. A major part of the outbreak has occurred in these homes, most especially in those that are privately run. The military were called upon to address the most disastrous situations and they detailed the horror stories in some of the homes.

  • Egypt's Sisi delivers economic reforms but hurdles remain Reuters
    October 24, 2014

    In his first 100 days in office, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has made a fast start on economic reform: slashing costly fuel subsidies, raising taxes and devising infrastructure projects to secure long-term revenues and ease unemployment.

    Prayer plays a central role in the Abrahamic faiths. It is human speech addressed to God.

  • The meaning of ChristmasRev. Graham E. Morbey
    December 8, 2010

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Toronto. And throughout most of the world, at least some part of Christmas will be in the air, on the street or hidden in the heart. Christmas is truly global.

  • Lent for our presentRev. Graham E. Morbey
    March 16, 2011

    When we share the premise that the God who is referred to in the texts of the Abrahamic faiths is essentially the same, then we are speaking of billions of people who, amid the great diversity within their own and between each other's traditions, share a great mystery: a God who claims not only to reveal himself to Jew, Christian and Muslim but also to every human being.

  • On the meaning of RamadanRev. Graham Morbey
    September 7, 2010

    A few days into Ramadan, I returned a keyboard and mouse I was having difficulty with to the store where I bought it. The pleasant young man who served me and did the paper work for the return looked to me like he might be Muslim. I put him to the test as I was leaving the store by asking him if it would be okay if I wished him a happy Ramadan.

  • From a Saudi prince, tough talk on America’s favoritism toward IsraelRichard Cohen
    June 23, 2011

    As best I can recall, I first met Saudi Arabia’s Prince Turki al-Faisal at a private home in Washington years ago. I found him stern and humorless, sometimes even bitter. I have seen him since at international conferences and the like — never in the mood for small talk and exhibiting, sometimes in his glorious robes, not an ounce of Bedouin charm. Still, I was unprepared for the opinion column he published in Sunday’s Post. It read like a declaration of war.
