    Lets talk about secession. Not exactly the most suitable cocktail party conversation starter anywhere in the country, but take that notion deep into the heart of Dixie and you might find yourself running from the possum-hunting conservatives, trailer-park lifers, and prayer warriors Chuck Thompson encountered during the two years he spent traveling the American South asking the question: Would we be better off without em? The result is a heavily researched, serious inquiry into national divides which is unabashedly controversial, often uproarious, and always thought-provoking. From a church service in Mobile, Alabama, where the gospel entertainer announces "Islam is upon...

    A recent episode of the popular Arabic show al-Sharia wa al-Haya (Law and Life), which airs weekly on Al Jazeera and features renowned Muslim scholar Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, addressed the important yet little known Muslim concept of taysir (pronounced “tey-seer”). Qaradawi, who is touted by the likes of John Esposito and CAIR as a “moderate” — even as he legitimizes suicide attacks against Israel (including by women) and death for apostates — explained that, according to fiqh al-taysir (the “jurisprudence of ease”), Islam (like Catholicism) offers Muslims dispensations, whenever needed: “For Allah desires ease for you, not hardship” (Koran 2:185;...

    A proposal to divide the United States into two countries I post this article with a sense of ambivalence, since, notwithstanding the author's boldness and originality of thought, his proposal presents grave practical difficulties which in my view he deals with only superficially. However, as I myself have said, with the passage of the health care bill America has now become in effect two mutually irreconcilable peoples (they want to impose unlimited state power on us, which we don't want to be imposed), and the only two logical resolutions to the conflict are that one side crush and dominate the...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Oscar winning actor Sean Penn and his wife Robin's rocky marriage is headed for divorce for the third time, and this time it's Robin who has filed the court papers. The "Message in a Bottle" actress, 43, filed for divorce last week in northern California where they reside citing irreconcilable differences, People magazine said on Tuesday. The papers obtained by the celebrity magazine said Robin Wright Penn and her husband had agreed to share custody of their 16 year-old son Hopper Jack and divide their property. In an interview in the September edition of More magazine,...

    A bitter-sounding Sen. John Kerry dismissed the historic Iraqi election on Sunday, warning Americans not to "overhype" the watershed event. "No one in the United States should try to overhype this election," Kerry told NBC's "Meet the Press." The failed presidential candidate questioned the historic referendum's legitimacy, saying, "It's hard to say that something is legitimate when a whole portion of the country can't vote and doesn't vote." Kerry also pooh-poohed reports of a surprisingly high 72 percent turnout by Iraqi voters, insisting instead that the election has "gone as expected." Asked if he thought Iraq was now less of...

    Irreconcilable differences of opinion?They are veto-holding partners in Europe and on the UN Security Council. But as yesterday's speech by Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary, demonstrated, politically they have rarely been so far apart. What are the main points that divide them? 12 February 2003 By Kim Sengupta in London and John Lichfield in Paris The threat from Iraq is overstated; it is no worse than other rogue regimes. What is the threat to Europe and the United States? THE BRITISH VIEW"We have to differentiate between the threat posed by Iraq and other would-be proliferators. No other country shares Iraq's...
