    The main obstacle to Israeli-Arab peace is the Palestinian nationalist movement’s fanaticism and refusal to compromise, historian Benny Morris has said. Morris, who was once numbered among Israel’s most staunchly left-wing academics, told Haaretz, .... “I’ve written enough about a conflict that has no solution, primarily due to the Palestinians’ consistency in rejecting a two-state solution.” He mentioned his most recent book, “One State, Two States,” which, he said, describes a “historic journey” with a political purpose. “I want to open readers’ eyes to the truth,” he declared. “My goal is to expose the goals of the Palestinian national movement...

    BAGHDAD – To better equip Iraqi Security Forces with what they need to stay mission ready, U.S. Army engineers here helped Iraqi Federal Police build a 10-station obstacle course at Joint Security Station Beladiyat, April 2.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A man with an unusually tiny brain managed to live an entirely normal life despite his condition, caused by a fluid buildup in his skull, French researchers reported on Thursday. Scans of the 44-year-old man's brain showed that a huge fluid-filled chamber called a ventricle took up most of the room in his skull, leaving little more than a thin sheet of actual brain tissue. "He was a married father of two children, and worked as a civil servant," Dr. Lionel Feuillet and colleagues at the Universite de la Mediterranee in Marseille wrote in a letter to...

    Landmark legislation offering eventual citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants suffered a potentially fatal blow Friday in the Senate, the latest in a series of election-year setbacks for President Bush and the Republicans who control Congress. "Politics got ahead of policy on this," lamented Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (news, bio, voting record), D-Mass. an evenhanded assessment that belied the partisan recriminations from all sides. Hailed as a bipartisan breakthrough less than 24 hours earlier, the bill fell victim to internal disputes in both parties as well as to bewildering political maneuvering. On the key vote, only 38 senators, all Democrats,...
