  • Somerset Maugham's Malaysia: Sarawak and Sabah, Part 1/2Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    January 16, 2014

    To motivate my touring of the island of Borneo with temperature in the 30s and humidity in the 90s - just the thought of it moisten my face with drops of sweat that run off my forehead and over my glasses - I read the 1869 two-volume classic by Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace; The Malay Archipelago, the Land of the Orang-Utan and the Bird of Paradise.

    When Khalid Usman was appointed Chairman of the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, at its annual general meeting recently, it was but a continuation of the contribution this 26-year resident of Markham has made to the community.

  • Visiting Brunei the Abode of PeaceDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    January 16, 2014

    Several reasons motivated me to visit Brunei. It is oil rich, tiny, safe, not touristy, has a Malay Islamic culture and a beautiful nature. Two more: (1) Its head of state Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah is a graduate of Egypt's Al Azhar and (2) Brunei is ranked in the top ten of the happiest country in the world along with Canada. Literacy rate here is among the highest in the world at about 95%.

  • Harper scandalThe Canadian Charger
    December 8, 2013

    In the November 22, 2013 edition of the National Post, Kelly McParland writes: A full-scale press is put on to get the money repaid and the issue out of the headlines. The taint is spreading and there are fears it will reach the prime minister, despite Cpl. Horton's view, as stated in the documents, that there's no evidence indicating Mr. Harper had any knowledge or involvement in the gathering mess.

  • Canadian Charger must oppose Ottawa’s fake "anti-terrorism" listJohn Riddell and Suzanne Weiss
    December 8, 2013

    We wish to express our concern with Canadian Charger's editorial, "Canadians: List Egypt's Brotherhood a terrorist group." The article's call on the Harper government to ban the Muslim Brotherhood as "terrorist" group is a serious breach of the Charger's previous stand for democratic rights and against Islamophobia.

  • Zionism's Last Card and Hope for PalestineAlan Hart
    December 8, 2013

    Following the interim agreement with Iran the next six months will tell us whether or not the American-led Zionist lobby and Zionism itself has played its last card and lost. If it does lose President Obama will be free to use the leverage he has to try to cause Israel to be serious about peace on terms almost all Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept (and which would not pose any threat to the wellbeing and security of those Jews now living in Palestine that became Israel and who wanted to stay). The stakes could not be higher.

  • I love orangutans, but they aren't our "cousins" Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    December 8, 2013

    A cartoon shows two women at a coffee shop. One is holding a book, Secrets of How Orangutans Speak, and saying: It's done wonders to our marriage.

  • A Giant has fallenReuel S. Amdur
    December 8, 2013

    Following Nelson Mandela's death we are being deluged by hagiography. Indeed there is much to praise, but better we should try to understand his role in history. To begin, it is clear that the festering sore of apartheid could not survive indefinitely, with a privileged white minority astride a much larger subjected black minority and growing international isolation. The seething unrest threw up Mandela as the leader and spokesman for the unrest, but had it not been Mandela it would have been others. In that sense, he was not indispensible. The anthropologist Leslie White, writing in the American Sociological Review back in 1947, expressed the matter eloquently.

  • Ford: A Criminal in Denial Reuel S. Amdur
    December 8, 2013

    The Rob Ford fiasco undermines the Rob Ford solution to the urban situation. His solution to the cost of services is to cut taxes and let services shrivel. He even contemplated closing libraries. His solution to gun crime is to ban all criminals convicted of gun offenses from living in Toronto and to demand an additional $10 million from the province for more police. Notice the contradiction between cutting taxes and demanding more money. He wants no part of "hug a thug" programs, and while he has had his football team he has opposed City Council giving financial support to other youth programs that might have a role to play in prevention.
