    The "Arab spring" may have started in early 2011 when a young Tunisian fruit seller, in a desperate response to disempowerment and despair, immolated himself in the streets of a small town. But its origins link directly to the first Palestinian intifada, the non-violent, society-wide mobilization that transformed Palestine's national struggle beginning in the late 1980s.

    November 20, 2011

    In advance of the formal burial of the Palestinian Authority's bid for state recognition at the UN, BBC Radio 4's flagship Today programme was on the right track.

  • Canada: The devil in the tar sandsJody Williams and Archbishop Desmond Tutu
    November 20, 2011

    On Sunday, Nov. 6, thousands of people encircled the White House as part of the ongoing effort to press US President Barack Obama to stop the Keystone XL pipeline.

Should the project go ahead, Obama will have made one of the single most disastrous decisions of his presidency concerning climate change and the very future of our planet.

    When Egyptians stood up to Mubarak they were met with tear gas and clubs. Once upon a time America had freedom of assembly, speech and protest.

  • Israel, big money and ObamaMargaret Kimberley

    "Barack Obama has established a strong record as a true friend of Israel, a stalwart defender of Israel's security, and an effective advocate of strengthening the steadfast U.S.-Israel relationship, publicly stating that Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state should never be challenged." - Lester Crown

  • If not multiculturalism, what? Dr. Rahat Naqvi
    November 13, 2011

    Let me tell you the story of an eight-year-old boy who traveled on camelback across the desert border between modern day Pakistan and India. That boy would eventually settle in Sukkhur, a small town in Pakistan. Little did he know that, within 60 years, the newly-born country to which his parents had migrated would proceed with an experiment that would attempt to define a homogeneous cultural identity in what was then a collection of extremely varied cultures.
