    The coalition of the dispossessed in the Middle East consisting of Hamas, Hizbullah, Syria and Iran has made great gains in the first three months of this year. Their systematic and consistent work in the diplomatic arena is dictating the new realities on the ground. The Arab League affirmed these realities this week in its summit communiqué. Most Arab and foreign observers belittled the significance of the gathering and its final decisions. But this was a rare occasion where the leaders of Arab states did not undermine the aspirations of their own people. This by itself was a great accomplishment....

    Uncle Boutros and Uncle Tom…A Lesson In Arab Tolerance   by Gerald A. Honigman2006/02/12      My friend  and scholar, Jerry Gordon, sent me a note the other day alerting me to Diane West’s great article in the The Washington Times referring to the essential historian, Bat Ye’or’s, writings on dhimmitude.      Having written somewhat myself on the subject of the forced Arabization of much of the region’s lands and peoples since Muhammad’s successors burst out of the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century C.E. and spread Islam by their imperial Caliphal sword in all directions, events of late sired in Denmark also...
  • Middle Eastern Media Awash in Anti-Semitism

    Even as the Muslim world protests against the Muhammad caricatures printed in the West, a number of Arab newspapers publish virulently anti-Semitic cartoons. But nobody's paying much attention. After all, Jew baiting in the Arab world has become the norm. In the end, it was the image of the Prophet Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban with a lit fuse that proved perhaps most offensive. After all, as the Web site of the Arab-European League -- a group supporting the rights of Arab and Muslim communities in Europe -- pointed out: "The issue for us is not about depicting the prophet...

    The site describes itself as: A selection of cartoons from the media of seven Arab countries (Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Syria and Egypt) and from the Palestinian Authority is displayed below. A number of these countries are regarded as moderate or allied to the West. Most print media in the Arab world are under the full or partial control of the ruling regimes. One picture can sometimes be deadlier than a thousand words. -- Tom Gross
  • Iran demands halt to broadcasts from West; Dubai complies

    ABU DHABI — Iran has forced the United Arab Emirates of Dubai to halt live Persian-language television broadcasts. Western diplomatic sources said the broadcasts contained Western programming and discussed democracy. They said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his advisers regarded these broadcasts as part of a U.S.-led effort to foment unrest in Iran. Iran also pressured Holland to end support for the Persian-language broadcasts. The sources said Teheran awarded several major projects to the Netherlands in wake of its decision to withdraw support for the broadcasts.

    In the wake of the current Muslim rioting and attacks on western embassies in reaction to the cartoons depicting Mohammed, I thought it would be instructive to see how the Arab media have depicted Jews and Jewish leaders. Popping the term "anti-Semitic cartoons" into Google yielded innumerable examples. Below are a number of cartoons that the Anti-Defamation League assembled a few years ago:And of course we all remember Jews around the world storming various Arab embassies. Oh, wait. No we don't . . .

    A new audio tape purportedly from Osama Bin Laden has been broadcast as an exclusive on al-Jazeera, the Arab TV station that first made its name by showing al-Qaeda messages before and after 9/11. It is the first new tape said to carry the voice of the al-Qaeda leader for just over a year. During that time, two other figures have taken Osama Bin Laden's place as the leading voices of radical Islamic militancy. They are al-Qaeda's number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and the Islamic militant leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Both have released communications this month and both have...

    Arab Analysts Give Nod to Favored Oscar Contenders News Analysis, Jalal Ghazi, Pacific News Service, Jan 06, 2006 Editor's Note: Arab media are lauding several Hollywood films that portray Muslims and Arabs with newfound depth, sympathy and fairness. SAN FRANCISCO--For many years big budget Hollywood movies depicted Arabs as terrorists or greedy oil barons, but since Sept. 11, 2001, and the war in Iraq, it seems such films are finally falling out of fashion. Arab analysts and media are lauding portrayals of Arabs and Muslims in the recent films "Syriana" and "Munich," and the smaller budget independent film "Paradise Now."...

    Bush: Arabic TV gives false impression of US By Sue Pleming 20 minutes ago President George W. Bush complained on Thursday that Arabic television often gave a false impression of the United States, saying Americans needed to do a better job of communicating their ideals. Launching a National Security Language Initiative to boost the teaching of foreign languages, Bush said it was a way to help combat the notion that the United States was bullying in imposing its concept of freedom. "You can't convince people unless you can talk to them," Bush told a State Department audience. The language initiative,...

    It comes as a relief to learn that Karen Hughes, who runs the public diplomacy shop at the U.S. State Department, has suspended the pathetic effort to reach out to Arab and other foreign audiences via a taxpayer-funded magazine named Hi International (best remembered for a notorious June 2005 article, "Sharp-Dressed Men," that told how "real men moisturize"). It's startling to realize that $4.5 million a year produced a mere 55,000 monthly copies of Hi and (according to alexa.com) a website that ranks about 900,000th from the top, suggesting it gets about 100 hits a day. The magazine has been...

    WASHINGTON -- The US State Department on December 22 said it was suspending the publication of the multimillion dollar Hi magazine that targeted Arab youth. "The State Department is conducting a review of its Arabic language magazine, Hi, to assess whether the magazine is meeting its objectives effectively," it said in a statement. "During the period of this review, the print version of Hi magazine will be suspended." The magazine's Website, www.himag.com, will remain active during the period. The magazine was launched in July 2003 in a bid to win the hearts and minds of Arab youth. Some 55,000 copies...

    Saudi television featured an interview with a young Palestinian girl who called Jews "villains" and "dogs" and said the Palestinians have no desire for peace with Israel. In the segment on Iqra TV aired Dec. 7, the young girl said that in 1948, "the Jews occupied our land, our country. They drove us out of our homes, and put us in tents. Then they would destroy our homes. They'd put our clothes out on the sand, and then demolish the homes. They would get them out, destroy their homes, demolish and bring them down." The excerpt, translated by the Middle...

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Arab governments appeared reluctant Thursday to condemn Iran's president for calling the Holocaust a "myth" used by Europeans to create a Jewish state in the heart of the Islamic world. While official Arab reaction in such cases is usually slower than international reaction, any issue involving a defense of Israel is a thorny one for Arab governments, who risk appearing to side with Israel against a Muslim nation. The comments by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, broadcast live Wednesday on state-run Iranian television, drew quick condemnation from Israel, the European Union and the United States. However, in...

    Saudi state-run Channel One TV broadcasted the first episode of a new series aimed at dissuading young Saudis from following in the footsteps of many of their contemporaries to join the jihad (holy war) earlier this week. “Jihad Experiences, the Deceit” is a five part series which will tell the stories of several young Saudis who left to Iraq to fight alongside Abu Musab al Zarqawi. Zayd Asfan, Abdullah Khoja and Walid Khan narrated their journey from ordinary Saudi youth to mujahideen and discussed the recruitment and brainwashing techniques used by al Qaeda. At the end of the program, Channel...

    The founder of the nation's first Arabic Christian TV channel says the programming is attracting phone inquiries from curious Muslims. The Southern California-based channel Alkarma, whose name means "the vineyard" in Arabic, premiered Oct. 17. It is the brainchild of Samuel Estefanos, an Egyptian-born businessman. The channel gets 10 to 15 calls a day from Arabic speakers with Muslim surnames who are intrigued that Alkarma would give away a movie known as the "Jesus Film" and other materials. "Some of them call and say they are Muslims and need to know more about Christ," Mr. Estefanos said. "Other people are...
