    Two senior U.N. officials said Monday they are "sickened by blatant manifestations of hatred and intolerance" by public figures and others, particularly against Muslims, in response to recent extremist attacks. Adama Dieng, the special adviser on the prevention of genocide, and Jennifer Welsh, the special adviser on the responsibility to protect civilians, said any "advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence" is prohibited by international human rights law and laws in many countries. In a joint statement, they denounced "the deliberate and dangerous spread of misinformation and the manipulation of people's fears...

    CAIRO – Thousands of anti-government protesters wielding rocks, glass and sticks chased hundreds of riot police away from the main square in downtown Cairo and several of the policemen stripped off their uniforms and badges and joined the demonstrators. An Associated Press reporter saw the protesters cheering the police who joined them and hoisting them on their shoulders in one of the many dramatic and chaotic scenes across Egypt on Friday. After chasing the police, thousands of protesters were able to flood into the huge Tahrir Square downtown after being kept out most of the day by a very heavy...

    There was another column by Professor Beeman of Brown University in the Providence Journal the other day. He often has columns published in the Journal, and they all have the same message regardless of what part of the Middle East he is addressing: we shouldn’t get too upset about the fact that the Islamacists want to kill us because they have some grievances arising out of mistakes made by western powers in the past.

    The United States is not fighting a war against terror. Terror is an emotional response. Fighting a war against terror makes no more sense than fighting a war against greed or envy. Are we, however, fighting a war against terrorism? Some analysts make the cogent argument that terrorism is a weapon. Therefore, they say, to declare a “War Against Terrorism” is akin to proclaiming a “War Against Submarines.” But terrorism – the intentional targeting of civilians for political purposes – is a heinous tactic that can be fought just as people have battled germ warfare, genocide, ethnic cleansing, slavery and...

    Islamists fear Iraq situation catastrophic From the International Desk Published 4/12/2003 12:57 PM AMMAN, Jordan, April 12 (UPI) -- Jordan's Islamic movement Saturday described the downfall of Iraq as "a huge catastrophe that was planned" and warned other countries in the region are vulnerable to a similar fate. The head of the Islamic Action Front's Shura (consultative) Council, Abdul Latif Arabiyat, told reporters the chaos that has swept Iraqi cities was "a conspiracy aimed at destroying Iraq and its resources, and not its liberation." He said "what happened in Iraq might reach other countries in the region," calling on Arabs...
