It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.

Palestine in Canadian Politics PDF Print E-mail

 Dan Freeman-Maloy Arundhati Roy reminds us that Churchill himself justified supporting the colonization of Palestine in precisely these terms: “I do not agree,” Churchill explained in 1937, “that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger, even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit, for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America, or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race, a more worldly-wide race, to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.”[9] For the likes of Harper, such filth remains a guiding principle

Independent Jewish Voices  AIPAC lost this fight. They lost their fight against diplomacy with Iran. And they lost the fight on bombing Syria.

What does 'Israeli Apartheid' mean, anyway? PDF Print E-mail

Amira Haas   Even though here things are shrouded by “security concerns,” with references to Auschwitz and heaven-decreed real estate, our reality is governed by the same philosophy, backed by laws and force of arms.

Mandela PDF Print E-mail

“The UN took a strong stand against apartheid; and over the years, an international consensus was built, which helped to bring an end to this iniquitous system. But we know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

Mandela PDF Print E-mail

Ehud Olmert to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz PDF Print E-mail

If the day comes when the two-state solution collapses, and we face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights (also for the Palestinians in the territories), then, as soon as that happens, the State of Israel is finished. The Jewish organizations, which were our power base in America, will be the first to come out against us, because they will say they cannot support a state that does not support democracy and equal voting rights for all its residents.” Ehud Olmert to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz.

Michael Ignatieff in 2002 PDF Print E-mail

When I looked down at the West Bank, at the settlements like Crusader forts occupying the high ground, at the Israeli security cordon along the Jordan river closing off the Palestinian lands from Jordan, I knew I was not looking down at a state or the beginnings of one, but at a Bantustan, one of those pseudo-states created in the dying years of apartheid to keep the African population under control - Michael Ignatieff in 2002

Finian Cunningham   This is of course China’s lawful right to do so, as are its territorial claims. But, in the imperialist, megalomaniac mindset of Washington, the “threat” to the US economy and indebted way of life is perceived as a tacit act of war. That is why Washington is reacting so furiously and desperately to China’s newly declared air corridor. It is a pretext for the US to clench an iron fist.

Dr Zuhair Shihab
, Texas
His novels ought to be translated
and taught in Arabic and other
countries where females are
deprived depressed and denied
basic rights and freedoms. ..
his books would contribute and
create some changes in
conventional concepts, dilute or
defeat some of the taboos and
push towards female emancipation
