  • The Veto and the Case for Impeaching President ObamaAlan Hart
    February 23, 2011

    Never before has an American President's fear of offending the Zionist lobby and its stooges in Congress been so exposed as it was by Obama's decision to veto the Security Council resolution condemning continued, illegal Israeli settlement activities on the occupied West Bank and demanding that Israel "immediately and completely cease" all such activities.

    February 23, 2011

    The inspiring moments when President Obama appeared before the cameras, and thus the world, to declare that the dictator Hosni Mubarak must step down and the people of Egypt given the inalienable right to self-determination are now in the past. It was a moment when U.S. foreign policy actually appeared to correspond to the foreign reality it addressed. Ironically, it was this very correspondence that made the moment anomalous–something quite out of the ordinary.

    February 17, 2011

    Since January 25, during Egypt's pro-democracy revolution, many of the country writers and journalists were harassed, denied access to internet and cell phone service, forced to communicate lies to readers and viewers, lost their jobs and some were shot dead. Where were Canada's writers and journalists from all of this? Why have they not issued statements? Why did PEN wait until February 4 to issue a statement?

  • Egypt: Pope Shenouda's historical sin The Canadian Charger
    February 16, 2011

    Coptic Pope Shenouda III is not only a religious figure. Largely as a result of the precarious situation of Copts in Egypt, he has also felt it necessary to engage in Egyptian politics. Unfortunately for him, he recently bet on the wrong horse, namely Hosni Mubarak.

    February 16, 2011

    One of the really progressive acts that followed the end of World War II was the establishment of the principle of universal jurisdiction (UJ). UJ is a legal process that allows states that are signatories to various international treaties and conventions (such as the Geneva conventions) to prosecute alleged violators of these treaties, even when these violations are committed outside the country's usual jurisdiction.
