    "US Latinas seek answers in Islam," heralds a recent feature article in The Christian Science Monitor (December 27). "Some young US Latinas say Islam offers women more respect," reports the paper's contributor Christine Armario. She quotes a head-scarved immigrant convert as saying that Muslim men "don't look at you like a sex object." According to Ms. Armario's account, "Many of the Latina converts say that their belief that women are treated better in Islam was a significant factor in converting." The report mentions in passing the skepticism that these conversions sometimes elicit in the Latino community, but then goes on...

    (IsraelNN.com) All air force operations such as the counter-terrorism aerial strikes over Gaza last night are filmed by a drone pilotless aircraft. After a day of PA accusations and condemnations from the international community, the IDF revealed the unedited film of last night’s so-called “massacre” in Gaza. The film shows without a doubt that when both sets of missiles were fired at a vehicle occupied by Hamas terrorists [who were on their way to an attack], there were no more than 2-3 persons in the area. The film shows that after the firing of the first missile, the vehicle was...

    Organizers of an upcoming Islamic event in London dealing with the events of Sept. 11 2001 are reacting angrily to charges that the event is more of a celebration than a conference. A poster promoting the event, scheduled for Sept. 11 2003, features pictures of the 19 hijhackers, whom it promotes as "The Magnificent 19." Despite the apparently laudatory comments of the hijackers by Al-Muhajiroun, the radical Islamic sect based in London promoting the event, an official statement from the group insists that the upcoming event is not a celebration. To categorize it as such, the document insists, is just...

    The US-led war on Iraq could cost as much as $1,000 billion in lost production in Arab countries, a UN economic seminar in Beirut warned on Monday. “A dark cloud is covering the whole world and the Arab region in particular,” said Mervat Tallawi, Executive Secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (ESCWA). She estimated the cost of the war at a trillion dollars in lost gross domestic product, on top of the $600 billion lost due to the 1991 Gulf War, at the start of a four-day session. Tallawi added that between four and five million...

    Muslim Panelists Confront Rushdie's Work Festival speakers discuss the writer's critical portrayal of Islam in The Satanic Verses. Muslim spiritual and intellectual leaders contributed new perspectives on the current production of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children in a panel discussion last night. While Rushdie has misrepresented Islam in the past and offended many worshippers, they said, the Muslim community is cautiously optimistic that the sensitive and critical atmosphere of the current Midnight's Children production may help to repair the past damage. Imam Al-Hajj Talib Abdur-Rashid, Professor Amir Al-Islam, and Ghazi Khankan delivered articulate, impassioned addresses to a small but eager audience...

    Some 103 American soldiers were killed Sunday in a battle between US-British forces and Iraqi troops near Nasiriya in southern Iraq, Al-Arabia Satellite Channel said. The Dubai-based TV channel quoted Iranian sources as saying that the United States would be making a big mistake if they continue their campaign in such a manner. The sources anticipated the Americans would attempt to launch an attack from another direction. Deputy commander of US Gulf forces John Abizaid said at a Doha press conference that the coalition forces Sunday met with "toughest" resistance in the four-day campaign as 12 soldiers were listed missing...

This year, with the war in Iraq, the slant of stories about Saddam Hussein and the effort to stop him is significant. But it's even more important over the long run that our press educators alert us to the warlike propensities of a large chunk of Islam, not just an extremist faction. Christianity has had its...
