Opinion: Libya: Advice to Gaddafi Loyalists - by S.R.H. Hasmi
It is time for Gaddafi loyalists to give up because they are in no position to reverse the progress that has been made in the meantime and their struggle is not for a just cause anyway. By persisting in their terrorist acts, Gaddafi loyalists are only doing great harm to themselves as well as to their near and dear ones.
Opinion: Only Way for Libya Now is Forward – by Muftah Al-Mabrouk
I have often wondered why some people fail to resign themselves to reason and try to make the best of what's there. In Libya, some loyalists of the former dictator Muammar Gaddafi seem to believe that the February 17 Revolution was just a passing phase. They were so lost in the corruption that prevailed, that they believe that their good old days would return. No way!
Opinion: The Missing Option to Defuse Iran Threat - by Nicola Nasser
To keep “all options on the table” in the US - Israel plans to change the incumbent Syrian and Iranian regimes and neutralise what both countries perceive as an imminent “threat” is a formula missing the only feasible option to defuse their perceived threat peacefully, which is obviously much cheaper in money and human souls.
Opinion: The Children Are Still Dying: Violence is Not News - by Ramzy Baroud
Somewhere in my home I have a set of photo albums I rarely go near. I fear the flood of cruel memories that might be evoked from looking at the countless photos I took during a trip to Iraq. Many of the pictures are of children who developed rare forms of cancer as a result of exposure to Depleted Uranium (DU), which was used in the US-led war against Iraq over two decades ago.
Libya: The Incident at Rixos
Facing the open toilet in a prison cell with ten other Libyan inmates, my wishful article on Libya’s elections and future democracy seemed the more surreal – this is the true story of how a Danish lawyer/ journalist in bathing guest guise caused a consular crisis in the new Libya – a cautious tale of the precarious transition to democracy and the rule of law.
Opinion: Eccentric Gaddafi or Eccentric Green? - by Hussain Abdulrazzaq Kreiba
Many Libyans hate green although it is associated with life. Green fields and woodlands always make us feel thrilled as we enjoy the beauty of nature.However, Libyans’ experience with green during the past decades was affected by the fact that such a colour was adopted by Gaddafi to represent the identity of his regime.
Opinion: Shifting Truths in Sinai: The Political Value of Murdering Egyptians - by Ramzy Baroud
Two Land Cruisers filled with about fifteen well-built gunmen in ski masks and all-black outfits appear seemingly out of nowhere. Behind them is vast, open desert. They approach a group of soldiers huddled around a simple meal as they prepare to break their Ramadan fast. The gunmen open fire, leaving the soldiers with no chance of retrieving their weapons.
Opinion: Egypt: Clean Sweep for the Civilians - by Gwynne Dyer
Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi’s spokesman did not mince words. He said that the “retirement” of all the senior military commanders in the country represented the completion of the Egyptian revolution. And guess what? The rest of the officer corps accepted Mursi’s decision.
Opinion: Last Supper – by Morgan Strong
In the beginning of November 2004 I made arrangements to visit Yasser Arafat at his headquarters in Ramallah to conduct an interview. We were as usual to meet first for dinner. The time was set, and I arrived at his headquarters, the Mukata in Ramallah.
Opinion: Beyond the Arab Spring - by Engr. Sharique Naeem
As the Arab spring continues to unfold, each event, is being analysed closely by Politicians, Journalists, and Intellectuals both in the west and the east.
Opinion: "It is the culture," says Cohen – by S.R.H. Hashmi
In an article titled 'A difference beyond question,' published in The Washington Post on August 6, the writer Richard Cohen, obviously a Jew, showers generous praise on the Jewish community though not entirely without justification, in view of an example given by him: between 1980 and 2,000, the Israelis registered 7,652 patents in the United States against a figure of 367 by the entire Arab world, in the same period.
Opinion: Neocons vs. the ‘Arab Spring’: Back on the Warpath – by Ramzy Baroud
The neoconservatives are back with a vengeance. While popular uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and other Arab countries had briefly rendered them irrelevant in the region, Western intervention in Libya signalled a new opportunity. Now Syria promises to usher a full return of neoconservatives into the Middle East fray.
Enough is Enough on Iran Sanctions
The politics driving Congress to pass yet another Iran sanctions bill defy Einstein's definition of insanity.Previously, sanctions advocates have asserted the existing sanctions are intended to compel Iran's rulers to stand down their nuclear programme. That has not happened.
Opinion: Nothing ‘Accidental’ in Mali – More Misery Awaits - by Ramzy Baroud
Northern Mali promises to be the graveyard of scores of innocent people if African countries don’t collectively challenge Western influence in the region.
Opinion: Western Education vs The World – by Hind Turki
Hundreds of students from around the world annually flock to Western schools abroad in order to obtain “a better education”, but other than language, the preeminence between the education abroad and that of other schools around the world is debatable.
