RECENT STORIES

- The Guardian has a story on Susan Nathan, a Jew who decided to live in an Arab town in Israel.

- Al Bawaba on a dispute over a fatwa, which prohibited Islamic and Arab parties from dealing with the Iraqi Government Council.

- Asia Times has an amazing interview with the cousin of the (former?) Taliban Defense Minister (who turns out to be Pakistani.)

- Again by Asia Times, part 1 and part 2 on the Sunni-Shiite divide in Islam. An excellent historic overview and analysis. And how to build a bridge to connect the two. Highly recommended.

- Slate has a collection of anti-Israel cartoons which got the cartoonist, Malcolm Evens, fired.

- IPC reporting on a woman giving birth to a baby which dies at the spot. Sad, very sad.

- CNN on Palestinian in Gaza.

- The New York Times on the tensions rising at Temple Mount, better known as Haram al-Sharif.

- Debka File on the possibility of European troops in the Palestinian territories--or something along the lines.

If I find time, I will discuss some of these issues. Unfortunately, I'm very busy.
