Somalia: New Hotbed of Anti-Americanism U.S. foreign policy blundering has created a new violent hotbed of anti-Americanism in the turbulent Horn of Africa by orchestrating the Ethiopian invasion of another Muslim capital of the Arab League, in a clear American message that no Arab or Muslim metropolitan has impunity unless it falls into step with the U.S. vital regional interests. Terrorist attacks against American targets are expected as a result.

A Counterproductive U.S. Advice to Palestinians Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' decision to go without national consensus to early presidential and parliamentary elections was divisive, counterproductive and conforms to U.S.-Israeli plans to remove the Islamic Resistance Movement "Hamas" from power or pressure it into accepting what its rival Fatah had accepted: A peace process on their dictated terms and conditions

No Arab Cheers Yet for U.S. Democrats Arabs, at least at the non-official level, were quick to hail President George W. Bush's mid-term electoral defeat and the humiliating downfall of his war architect Donald Rumsfeld, but cheering the Democrats' victory has yet to wait and may not be voiced at all.

Saddam's Trial in Context: Episode of Victors' Injustice Democrats' crushing victory in the U.S. mid-term election was the latest proof that his administration's gimmick of orchestrating trials of Saddam Hussein was a failure that clearly turned the pre-planned verdict against Saddam into a popular verdict against Bush himself, in a referendum on his performance in the war on Iraq that broke his grip on power in Washington by depriving him of ruling with his own Republican party.

Lieberman Is Not an Israeli 'Internal Affair' The absence of a proportionate Palestinian reaction to the ascendancy of Israel's far right leader, Avigdor Lieberman, into the mainstream strategic decision-making in Tel Aviv has indicated of how dangerously the inter-Palestinian divide is overshadowing the Israeli threats and encouraged the visiting European Union's foreign policy chief, Javier Solana, to legitimize with a public meeting the man who could abort his mission

Iran Sparked Islamic Divide, Iran Only Can Defuse It None could argue the historical fact that the Islamic revolution in Iran had sparked a sectarian divide that only Iran can defuse, restrain and contain

Abusing the Arab Peace Initiative The failed Qatari mediation in the still unresolved inter-Palestinian divide was in practice an American success in turning the Arab Peace Initiative (API) into a pressure tool that further exacerbates fractures both in Arab and Palestinian ranks

Removing Hamas: Brinkmanship Tactics or Coup D'etat; A View From Ramallah Within the context of a U.S.-Israeli determined campaign to remove the elected Islamic Resistance Movement from power, the best of the Palestinian mainstream anti-occupation activists of Fatah and Hamas are being polarized into a deadlocked divide that is already threatening an historic national unity with a looming civil war as a result of either risky brinkmanship tactics or what Hamas says a coup d'etat.

Bush and Islam: Words versus Deeds The wide gap between U.S. President George W. Bush's words and deeds vis-Ó-vis Islam and Muslims doomed to failure his speech at the United nations on September 19, which could neither appease Muslims nor pacify the ever growing Islamophobia

A Catholic Stamp to a U.S. War Pope Benedict XVI has erred and the damage is done: His anti-Islam remarks are out and cannot be retracted, like bullets that cannot be retrieved once shot, adding a Catholic stamp to the Evangelist "Islam versus the West" justification for the U.S. neoconservative-led "WWIII on Islam"

Are Tehran and Washington in collusion or in collision in Baghdad When President George W. Bush never stops repeating that "success in Iraq is necessary for the security of the United States" (1) and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pledges "full security" (2) for Bush's Iraqi regime, one could not but wonder whether Iran and the U.S. are in collusion or in collision in Iraq.

Palestinian Donors: What Mission? The Palestinians have been too grateful and too helpless for too long to be critical of the political agenda of their donors who have practically nailed them down as political hostages to the donors' money, which was promised initially to help build an independent Palestinian state, but ended as a political instrument effectively used by the Israeli occupying power

Again, Arabs to Fish in a 'Dead Sea' Undeterred by any historic experience, the Arab League foreign ministers meeting in Cairo on July 15 seemed intent not to desist from fishing in the "dead sea" of the United Nations and decided to send a delegation to a ministerial meeting of the UN Security Council in mid-September with the aim of launching a new Middle East peace process.

Alienating the Beating Heart of Middle East The Bush administration's approach to the "New Middle East" is doomed to failure because it rules out addressing Syrian national strategic concerns and Syria as a regional key player, irrespective of who rules in Damascus.

Context of Israeli Wars in Lebanon, Palestine: Back to Roots writing from Ramallah The ongoing Israeli wars on Arabs in Palestine and Lebanon are just the latest rounds of the cycle of violence that has raged in and around Palestine since 1917, and are vivid and bloody evidence that imposition of political realities by military means won't last and that "Whoever takes by the sword, by the sword will be taken."

PLO-U.S. Connection: Time to Make or Break? Several indicators have shown recently how fragile the "connection" between the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the United States has been. And because Washington could deliver but won't and the Palestinian people can not be held forever hostage to waiting for the American Godot, time seems ripe to make or break this futile connection.
