Smith, Palestine and the Arab-Israeli Conflict, St. Martin's Press, New York, 1988, p. 145) This was accomplished through force of arms, intimidation and acts of terror, including rape and several massacres.

    The Cairo's unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah has caused consternation in the Israeli government. It was already upset by the announcement that Egypt would open its border with Gaza, thus ending Gaza's isolation and Israel's ability to control what products and who can enter and leave.

    May 16, 2011

    For the last 10 years women in Islam and their status in Muslim countries were two popular topics in Western media. Muslim women, like Irshad Manji and Ayaan Ali, have become media darlings because they wrote books smearing their religion, and called for the "liberation" of Muslim women.

    Listening to speaker after speaker at a recent May Day celebration in Toronto, it became apparent why there's been a groundswell of support for the NDP on May 2nd.

    May 12, 2011

    A revolution releases latent forces within a people. Scholars differ over what is the essence of the French Revolution, disagree about how long it lasted, debate its results and even discuss when it began.
