Opinion: What’s in It for Us?
By Zainab Al-Arabi
There’s something missing in all the development projects we see and hear of. There are no recreational or sports centres for women. At least, I haven’t noticed any such plans. Maybe the planners want to surprise us.
Opinion: Economic Success Requires that Business Information be Available for All
By Sami Zaptia
Are you trying to set up a new business in Libya? Are you trying to formulate a business plan to get a commercial loan from a Libyan bank? Do you have questions you would like answered about your potential business before you invest too much time and money in it? Are you trying to do some market research in Libya? Can you easily get standard business information in Libya? Well, when it comes to up to date detailed business information, I am afraid Libya needs to do more with regard to making commercial information available.
Opinion: Growing Up with Libya
By Zainab Al-Arabi
Politics have interested me from a very early age. I have no explanation for this, except that perhaps I was trying to show off in front of my elder sister and younger brother. Because my father watched the news a lot, and followed current affairs closely (part of his job anyway, as a diplomat), I did too. So that I could impress him with my ‘grown-up’ knowledge. Anyhow, that interest continued to grow with me, surpassing sibling rivalry.
Opinion: Libyans Abroad: Come Home We Need You!
By Sami Zaptia
Last week I was able to attend the conference of the Association of African Universities (AAU) as it met in Tripoli under the title 'The African Brain Drain - Managing the Drain: Working with the Diaspora' . The challenge for the conference was to come up with ideas to reverse this African brain-drain.
Opinion: Today Is Tomorrow
By Zainab Al-Arabi
In a meeting with Libyan journalists, writers, and representatives of civil associations at the beginning of this month, Seif Al-Islam Muammar Al-Gaddafi (President of Gaddafi Development Foundation), stated that the political process in Libya could not move forward until all Libyans were able to fully understand and freely discuss politics in homes, clubs, and each and every place. Actually Libyans have been doing that for years.
Opinion: Can Libya Learn from the Singapore Experience?
By Sami Zaptia
The Libyan Economic Development Board (EDB) have over the last year invited leading world figures to give talks in Libya as part of its strategy of diversifying Libya's revenues away from oil exports, decreasing unemployment and increasing enterprise in the private sector.
Opinion: An Unending War
By Joseph Success
What ran through your mind? I mean when you read the title to this article. I'm sure you must have thought about physical gun battles among those who are selfishly using the less privilege and uneducated in society to fight for them or maybe, your thoughts were on those fighting the various physical gun battles in order to amass wealth or get political powers.
In Limbo
By Zainab Al-Arabi
These days many Libyan State employees –mainly teachers- find themselves in a muddled situation. They’ve been ‘relieved’ of their current jobs and told that they would either be assigned other jobs, or relocated to work in other areas of the country according to each region’s requirements.
Libya ranks top on the United Nations Global Hunger Index 2007!
By Sami Zaptia
On the occasion of World Food Day on 16th October, an updated report was published (12th October) by the Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) which puts Libya on top of the United Nations (UN) Global Hunger Index 2007. IFPRI calculates the Global Hunger Index to capture the progress by different countries around the world on three indicators for two important UN developmental millennium goal targets for 2015.
Popinjays’ and Caesar’s
By Morgan Strong
(New Jersey) Gibbon’s Decline and Fall defines those things which proceeded, and contributed greatly to the fall of the Roman Empire. The Roman Senate had descended from noble advocacy for the citizenry, to corrupt veniality. The Legions of Rome once composed of citizen volunteers, and which had created the vast empire thorough force of arms, were now mercenary armies drawn from the conquered lands.
Opinion: Shame on The Arab League!
By Zainab Al-Arabi
It’s almost as if everyone’s tired of the Palestinians, and the Palestinians themselves –exhausted- have turned against each other.
Opinion: Libya Needs to Declare WAR on Its Damaging Education, Training & Skills Problems
By Sami Zaptia and Yolanda Zaptia
We were happy to read that the GPC (General People's Committee) in its 17th June 2007 meeting reviewed the restructuring of Libyan universities and higher institutions and that it was reviewing the education inputs and outputs, and taking into consideration the demands of the market for qualified human resources.
Opinion: Fake Drugs Trade Booms in Third World Countries
By B Y Muhammed
Today’s global, trans-national ¬dominated, drug industry seems to be facing a crisis of legitimacy and public confidence. In many ways, the situ¬ation is similar to seventy years ago when the present drug companies were just beginning their businesses, marketing patent medicines of 'mostly dubious value, and thereby raising the hackles of the medical profession - the slick advertising encouraged patients to bypass the doctor, and inaugurated a war.
Opinion: Let there be Spaces in Your Togetherness
By Zainab Al-Arabi
Within the wise words of the Lebanese poet, Gibran Khalil Gibran (in the title), is guidance for healthy relationships: especially the political kind. And as Libyan-American relations go from one level to the next, perhaps culminating in the proposed visit of Condoleeza Rice to Tripoli, we should still be wary of the Americans.
Opinion: Low Taxation, Red Tape and Libya's Wasted Multi-billion Informal Economy
By Sami Zaptia
A study by the famous Adam Smith Institute has shown that economic theory and historical evidence in both the USA, UK and in the developing world shows that lowering and simplifying taxes stimulates economic activity.

Traditions, Customs, and Dangerous Old Ladies
By: Zainab Al-Arabi
Every nation has its traditions and customs; some of which should be utilized as mechanisms for positive social change and advancement. Regretfully, some of these same traditions and customs have the opposite result when enforced by certain type of old women.
Simple Calculus BY; Morgan Strong
There are two fundamental truths about our war in Iraq. The first is that the administration did not tell the American people the true reasons for this war. Whether it was through deliberate lies or by the deliberate construction of false intelligence, the consequence is equal.
