Opinion: More Than a Bribe: Obama Surrenders Palestinian Rights
By Ramzy Baroud
The Middle East policies of US President Barack Obama may well prove the most detrimental in history so far, surpassing even the rightwing policies of President George W. Bush. Even those who warned against the overt optimism which accompanied Obama’s arrival to the White House must now be stunned to see how low the US president will go to appease Israel – all under the dangerous logic of needing to keep the peace process moving forward.

Opinion: Trouble Brewing in American Politics: Reparations, the Tea Party and the Founding Fathers

“Trouble Brewing" is the title of an October 30 article by Edward Luce published in the Financial Times Newspaper.

Opinion: Peace Held Hostage to Rotating US, Israeli Elections
By Nicola Nasser
The statement by former U.S. President George W. Bush in his 497 - page memoir of "Decision Points" that a secret peace deal was worked out between the then-prime minister of Israel, Ehud Olmert, and Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, which "we devised a process to turn… into a public agreement" had not Olmert been ousted by a scandal to be replaced in the following elections by Binyamin Netanyahu, who reneged on his predecessor's commitments, is a piece of history that highlights the fact that peace making in the Arab-Israeli conflict and the peace process have been hostages to the rotating U.S. and Israeli elections since the Madrid peace conference of 1991.

Opinion: Conned by Democracy: The Middle East’s Stagnant ‘Change’
By Ramzy Baroud
Democracy in the Middle East continues to be a hugely popular topic of discussion. Its virtues are tirelessly praised by rulers and oppositions alike, by intellectuals and ordinary people, by political prisoners and their prison guards. Yet, in actuality, it also remains an illusion, if not a front to ensure the demise of any real possibility of public participation in decision-making.

Opinion: Such is the Peace Process: Obama as a Salesman
By Ramzy Baroud
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that the resumption of peace talks between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority have thus far yielded nothing of value, at least not as far as settling the decades-long struggle.
Opinion: Neutralising False Impressions
By Mohammad Azeemullah
Cinematography is an important human innovation in the twentieth century. No other human endeavor has gained as much recognition among public as that of filmmaking in modern time. Its impact is far beyond the vision of eyes and the province of entertainment. It has hijacked the budding spirit of growing generation and dictates to its command and influence. Undoubtedly it has altered the way life is look at.
Opinion: The Violence Debate: Teaching the Oppressed Howto Fight Oppression
By Ramzy Baroud
An American activist once gave me a book she wrote detailing her experiences in Palestine. The largely visual volume documented her journey of the occupied West Bank, rife with barbered wires, checkpoints, soldiers and tanks. It also highlighted how Palestinians resisted the occupation peacefully, in contrast to the prevalent media depictions linking Palestinian resistance to violence.

Opinion: Gaddafi should be Treated with Respect, Thrust of His Speech at UN Made Perfect Sense
By Linda S. Heard
Gaddafi may break the mould with regards to his personal style and delivery, but he should not be so easily dismissed. It is incumbent upon New York, which hosts the UN headquarters, to ensure that all delegates are properly treated irrespective of whether they happen to be in the good graces of the US or British governments. Many people could learn a lot about hospitality from the Arabs, where overseas guests are invariably treated with respect.
