My Bestfriend - 1,110 words
English 1301 If you want a good friend, then you must be one yourself. That phrase always sticks in my mind when I remember my best friend Omar. Omar and I have been friends for over twenty years. We have done everything together since the day Omar moved to Jerusalem with his family. Omar was only eight back then and full of stories. I especially liked the one about how women mysteriously grew babies in their stomach six month after they get married. Two years after that, we became best friends when Omar showed me one of his fathers adult magazines. We thought that women were really weird back then. We still share that secret to this day. Our friendship became much stronger during the Pales ...

Conflict In The Middle East - 1,498 words
... peace throughout the Middle East. Both of these images of negotiation are incomplete and inadequate. Value creating and value claiming are linked parts of negotiation. Both processes are present. No matter how much creative problem solving enlarges the pie, it must still be divided; value that has been created must be claimed. And if the pie is not enlarged, there will be less to divide; there's more value to be claimed if one has helped create it first.(Sebenius, p. 33) An essential tension in negotiation exists between cooperative moves to create value and competitive moves to claim it. (Sebenius, p.35) In my opinion, there exists an onus amongst all parties involved to bring with them ...

A Muslims View - 1,162 words
For decades, the situation in Palestine has been promoted as an "Arab" issue, or a "Palestinian" issue, and Muslims have, by and large, gone along with this charade. Such a belief gas proven fatal as the Zionists have succeeded in further dividing the opposition to their occupation of Palesine, with the inevitable weaknesses that implies. And yet, paradoxiically, with the latest "peace treaties", between themselves and Jordan, and with the Palestinians of Yasser Arafat's Palestine National Authority (sic), the Zionists have brought into the open what should have been obvious all along. Palestine is an Islamic Issue, and Muslims all over the world have a duty to care about what is going on. F ...

The region of Palestine is sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. It is sacred to Christians because they believe in Jesus Ch ...

All types of bullets and ammunition, anti-tank missiles, helicopter gun-ships, and tanks were all used against civilian population trying to express their frustration with the continued Israeli occupation of their homeland, and against the Israelis who continued to deny their God given right for freedom, dignity, and independence.

Egypt - 2,589 words
The civilization of ancient Egypt is significant in several ways. Together with those of Mesopotamia, India, and China, it was one of the earliest civilizations, and it is perhaps the best example of continuous cultural evolution based on internal stimuli, rather than the complex mix of internal and external factors found, for example, in Mesopotamia. Egyptian influence on other peoples was also significant. Its hieroglyphic writing system and other cultural elements were adapted by ancient kingdoms of the Sudan. Syria-Palestine was strongly affected by Egyptian religion and art. And the cults of some Egyptian gods had followers in both Greece and Rome. The two last regions and the Bible are ...

Middle East - 1,966 words
In December 1985, the Canadian press reported the death by suicide of hundreds of field mice in the Middle East. In an apparently instinctive reaction to a problem of over-population, the mice wilfully plunged to their doom off the cliffs of the Golan Heights. This bizarre story was the subject not only of straight news coverage in the Canadian press, but also of an editorial in the Globe and Mail on December 20. On November 1, 1985, the Globe and Mail also ran a photograph of a visiting Roman Catholic priest from Brazil, saying prayers on the banks of the Jordan River at the site where Christ is said to have been baptized. Standing alertly near the priest was an Israeli soldier with a rifle ...

... greater attention to Canadian relations with the Middle East than in 1985. However, in our view, the coverage remained episodic in nature and did not reflect a new concern to inform readers about a range of Canadian relations with the countries of the region and Canadian policy with respect to the central issue of an Arab-Israeli reconciliation. The press's preoccupation with the Canadian dimension was principally a product of highly controversial statements by Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Secretary of State for External Affairs Joe Clark regarding Israel that set off a debate in Canada which the press reported on with some frequency, especially between December 1987 and May 1988. ...

The Little Drummer Girl - 841 words
John Le Carre's The Little Drummer Girl is one of the finest of all spy novels. The story concerns terrorism and anti-terrorism, focussing on the Israeli/Palestinian situation, and is full of convolutions and surprises. The book's multiple themes include the moral ambiguity of both sides, the coercive power of love, and the cost of violence to those who perform it. George Roy Hill's film version of the book manages to keep a surprising amount of both the plot and the themes in the film, but something has been lost. The film, while good, is not one of the great spy films. The problem is Hill. His direction is professional, but doesn't capture Le Carre's shadowy world of men and women willing ...
