  • Religion in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict-The Untold StoryRana Abdulla
    March 21, 2014

    Anyone who is familiar with the nature of what is called the "Israeli-Palestinian conflict" understands that the issues at stake are not religious ones. The people of Palestine have never identified universally with a single religion. Although the great majority of Palestinians can be identified as "Sunni Muslims," Palestinian Muslims live out their religious identity in many different ways. And of course there have been Palestinian Christians since the time of Jesus himself. In fact, Palestine has long been inhabited by people of many different religious faiths who have accommodated each other, developing an open and tolerant society.

    "Israel and Palestine, a Path to Peace." That was the topic for discussion at the National Capital Branch of the Canadian International Council on March 6. There were three presenters, Michael Bell, a former ambassador to Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, and Thomas Woodley, President of Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME). It was a strange discussion.

    Most of us, especially if we live to old age, will find ourselves suffering from one or more chronic conditions. In most of these, it is up to us to decide how we cope. Not deciding is also a decision, but one that makes us an object, not a subject, not a participant in our own care.

    I met him in Kuwait as he was just posted as a diplomat at the embassy of the Central African Republic. "Yesterday, the Christian militia shot my brother dead because he was a Muslim," he told me, "Then they tried to behead him. But the Burundian peacekeeping military intervened so they handed his body to my family."

    It may seem ironic that most of the spiciest foods in the world originated in a band close to the equator, in the hottest regions of the world.

  • Netanyahu: "Peace? No thanks but I’ll accept the box of chocolates"Alan Hart
    March 6, 2014

    I have long thought that Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the PLO's Executive Committee and the Palestine Legislative Council, is the most articulate spokesperson in Israeli occupied territory for her cause. Her latest comment is a bleak assessment of the prospects for getting a real peace process going. She was responding to a statement by an Obama administration official that both Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian President Abbas will be able to "express reservations about individual provisions" in the framework document Secretary of State Kerry is preparing. Here's what Ashrawi said:

    March 6, 2014

    Australia has been called the largest island and the smallest continent of the world. One third lies within the tropics. It is in the Southern Hemisphere; the further North you go the hotter it gets. Their mid-summer months are January and February and their mid-winter months are July and August. Christmas is usually a very hot day quite unsuitable for turkey and plum pudding.

    Anton Aanonsen was a company doctor at an oil enterprise in a small community on the coast of Norway. In his practice he began to see a trend among workers that captured his interest. The number of workers on the night shift who had health problems was relatively high. His examination of the issue led to his 1964 ground-breaking book Shift Work and Health.
