  • Rae Bows OutReuel S. Amdur
    July 19, 2012

    Bob Stanfield has been called the greatest prime minister Canada never had. Some are now wanting to put Bob Rae's name into competition for the title. Well, maybe, maybe not. The impulse for hagiography comes from Rae's declaration that he will not be a candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party, of which he is now interim leader. But what is his legacy? There is little question that he is one of the best, if not the best, orator in Parliament.

  • Dementia: A Tale of Two CountriesReuel S. Amdur
    July 19, 2012

    Dementia, particularly Alzheimer's, is a problem that increases as populations age. France and South Korea are two countries with aging populations who are taking measures to address the problem. There is no cure, but both countries are committing resources toward research and implementing policies to meet the needs of sufferers and their caregivers.

  • Expelling Diplomats: the DownsideFranklin Lamb

    Beirut The Houla massacre has whipped up a new wave of outrage at the claimed brutality of Syria's government. Syrian envoys were kicked out of some Western capitals, more financial sanctions slapped on the regime in Damascus, and more furious demands are being made for a regime change toppling Bashar al-Assad and more calls for military intervention issued.

  • United Church BoycottScott Stockdale

    A group of nine Canadian senators has warned the United Church of Canada that it could spark a rift with the Jewish community if it approves the boycott of goods from Israeli settlements in occupied lands. One has to wonder how much concern these same senators have shown about the potential rift with other communities in Canada that face the prospect of boycotts, notwithstanding the justifications put forward.

  • Israel's Illegal Migrant Hypocrisy Morgan Duchesney

    Is the Netanyahu regime capable of responding humanely when an opportunity for accurate self-perception arrives? Recent events may provide the answer to this question that the corporate media would never dare ask. Israel, ostensibly a state built on the notion of asylum (at least for European Jews); is expressing outrage at the influx of illegal migrants into its sacred precincts. How ironic but yet, how fitting; considering Israel's established policy of expanding illegal settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem.

    I did spend more than 10 years doing research on designing microchips – called artificial neural networks (ANN) - which mimic how the human brain processes information. I published research papers on the subject and in 1994, I published my book Artificial Neural Networks Engineering. It was a fascinating subject and those research years were most enjoyable.

  • So, what did the Muslims do for the Jews?David J Wasserstein
    June 30, 2012

    Islam saved Jewry. This is an unpopular, discomforting claim in the modern world. But it is a historical truth. The argument for it is double. First, in 570 CE, when the Prophet Mohammad was born, the Jews and Judaism were on the way to oblivion. And second, the coming of Islam saved them, providing a new context in which they not only survived, but flourished, laying foundations for subsequent Jewish cultural prosperity - also in Christendom - through the medieval period into the modern world.

  • Ending the War on YemenTom Hayden
    June 30, 2012

    With a Western withdrawal from Afghanistan "irreversible," according to NATO, the Pentagon and CIA's military focus will concentrate on Yemen, where diplomatic or political solutions seem impossible anytime soon.

  • Egypt: Justice, in or out of courtDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    June 30, 2012

    On Earth there is no such thing as justice, in or out of court; this is how the popular saying goes. Many Egyptians last Saturday firmly believe so following the sentencing of their 84-year old ex-president Hosni Mubarak and his Interior Minister Habib el-Adly to life in prison and the acquittals of Mubarak's two sons and six top police officers.
