    An Arab teenager whose abduction and murder triggered violent protests was burned alive, autopsy reports show, as clashes over the killing spread Saturday from Jerusalem to Arab Israeli towns. Mohammed Abu Khder, 16, was abducted from his Shuafat neighborhood in Jerusalem early Wednesday, and his charred body found not long afterwards in a the Jerusalem Forest. Palestinians have blamed Jewish extremists for killing him in revenge for the kidnapping and murder in last month of three Israeli teenagers. Palestinian news agency Maan quoted Palestinian Authority Attorney General Mohammed Aluweiwi on Saturday as saying the initial findings of a post-mortem indicated...
  • 'Honor killing': Arab teen in Jerusalem murdered by family because he was gay?

    I can't confirm this yet, but we've already seen stories in the mainstream media that claim that the Arab teen who was killed in the Jerusalem Forest overnight may have been murdered by family members. What the mainstream media is not telling you (as those who read Hebrew can see from the story above), is that the teen may have been the victim of an honor killing because he was gay. There's also another version of the story, which is only slightly different. In any event, this murder was not carried out by a Jew. But why let that...

Frequently confused with a burqa, the former only covers the face, while the latter covers the whole body.

Rihanna started her singing career in 2005 but in no time she shot to global fame. On the other hand, Elissa is immensely popular in this part of the world. She is known for working in collaboration with well-known Arab and international artists like Ragheb Alama, Cheb Mami, Fadl Shaker, Chris De Burgh and Gerrard Ferrer. She is now considered one of the top singers in the Middle East. Born to a Lebanese father and Syrian mother,...

There has been a sharp rise in tensions between Washington and several major Arab states in the wake of last month’s controversial interim agreement with Iran over its nuclear programme.

There is nothing they can do to avert this kind of rape behind closed doors. They can’t file a police complaint, they can’t leave as their passports are in possession of their employer, they can’t complain to the head of the family in risk of being beaten and abused. And like in this case, the blame will always be put on the slave – not the abuser....

    WASHINGTON—The Obama administration is hailing the accord with Iran as a victory in its campaign to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, but the deal is already feeding concerns of Arab governments and some proliferation experts that it could have the opposite effect. They worry it could instead fuel the spread of dangerous technologies across the Middle East and Asia. At issue is the agreement's acceptance of Iran's demand that at the end of a broader diplomatic process, the country will likely retain some ability to permanently produce nuclear fuel through the enrichment of uranium.

The phrase means nothing because it is about nothing, about nothing that constitutes a genuine ability to progress, as a people, as a society, in form of self-government, about anything that characterizes a definable, real world objective or political goal.

    The Arab Spring is a series of events of truly world-historical importance. It has already reshaped the Arab World and the Middle East more fundamentally and more rapidly than any event in the past several centuries. Even the emergence of the modern Arab states after the fall of the Ottoman Empire was more protracted and gradual. The suddenness and scale of the events of the past three years has a disruptive and transformative power all its own. The outcome of that transformation is far from clear at this point. It is, in fact, highly contingent on a series of...

    About 200 Arabs set up an illegal outpost Saturday near the village of Burin, not far from Shechem, in Samaria. They had put up a tent when the IDF arrived on the scene and dispersed them. The Arabs attacked the IDF force with rocks, and the soldiers responded with riot dispersal gear. No one was reported hurt. Voice of Israel public radio reported that Jew and Arabs confronted each other at the Yitzhar junction, in another incident on the Sabbath. The two groups hurled rocks at each other and an IDF force came in to separate them. Three Jews were...

    (Reuters) - Arab-American groups have sharply criticized a Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad depicting an Arab walking through the desert with a camel, and one group said it would ask the beverage giant to change it before CBS airs the game on Sunday before an expected audience of more than 100 million U.S. viewers. "Why is it that Arabs are always shown as either oil-rich sheiks, terrorists, or belly dancers?" said Warren David, president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, or ADC. Coca-Cola released an online teaser of the commercial last week, showing the Arab walking through a desert. He soon sees...

    The Bashar al-Assad rule in Syria has come under heavy fire from people who believe that the regime must quit over its atrocities. But any attempt by the US-led West to impose a replacement will backfire soon India’s oil-rich western neighbourhood, extending from the Arabian Sea to the Bosporus, is engulfed in conflicts arising from sectarian and civilisational rivalries, aggravated by the meddling of external powers. With an arsenal of over 100 nuclear weapons, Pakistan is today witnessing a period of internal strife, largely arising from the pernicious role of its military establishment and tensions across its disputed borders with...

    Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them...

    Although the Obama administration claims U.S.-funded power infrastructure projects in the nation of Georgia will boost energy security and stability in the former Soviet republic, WND has uncovered corollary beneficiaries of this foreign assistance: Arab royals. Promoting the development of the Poti Free Industrial Zone, or Poti FIZ, on the Black Sea coast is a driving force behind the Georgia Improved Transmission, or GIPT, project, according to several procurement documents that WND found during routine database research... However, the agency is not advertising the fact that one of the United Arab Emirates monarchies manages the zone. Indeed, Poti FIZ is...

    HOW OBAMA--AND THE MEDIA--LOST EGYPT, AND ISRAEL, TOO I have predicted how the Arab Spring would develop for several years. I have never been to Egypt, or for that matter any part of the Middle East. I am a student of human nature. Human nature is not immutable, but people who believe they can create a "new Soviet man" or and "Ubermensch" is severely deluded, and if they achieve power they can - and have - killed millions. But it's this kind of magical thinking that believes that the overthrow of Mubarak or K-Daffy would lead to a Western style...
