  • The American Monkey Can't Let GoFred Reed
    February 24, 2011

    Pondering Whither America, I reflected on a story, probably apocryphal but which I am going to believe because I like it, about catching monkeys. Tribesmen somewhere craft a heavy pot with a hole in it large enough that a monkey could insert an open hand, but not withdraw a closed fist. They then put monkey food in the pot. The monkey reaches in, grabs the food and, refusing to let go when the hunters approach, is caught and eaten.

  • The Arab Spring - hello or goodbye to democracy?Alan Hart
    November 27, 2011

    Israeli democracy fades to black (the black of the blank screen at the end of a film). That was the headline over a recent article by Lawrence Davidson, an American professor of Middle East history. He argued that the suppression of the democratic rights of non-Jews in Israel is coming full circle with Prime Minister Netanyahu's Likudniks and settlers now targeting the rights of Jews as well.

    May 25, 2011

    In the face of the geopolitical reality and democratic promise of the Arab spring, there is global restiveness concerning the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and the continuing, uncertain, social, economic, cultural and political future of the Palestinian people.

  • The Arab Spring comes to the US and CanadaProf. Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    November 6, 2011

    I fully understand the 99% movements in the US and Canada and even predict their success. I was/still am a participant in the Egyptian Revolution in its three phases: (1) a revolution-in-the making (2003-2011), (2) from-protesting-to-a-revolution at Tahrir Square (January 25 - April 4, 2011) and (3) building a New Egypt (at present).

  • The Arab world's intifadaPhyllis Bennis
    November 20, 2011

    The "Arab spring" may have started in early 2011 when a young Tunisian fruit seller, in a desperate response to disempowerment and despair, immolated himself in the streets of a small town. But its origins link directly to the first Palestinian intifada, the non-violent, society-wide mobilization that transformed Palestine's national struggle beginning in the late 1980s.
