How Palestinians and Israelis view peace

How Palestinians and Israelis view peace

US, September 27, (Pal Telegraph – Sameh.A.Habeeb) -All of us have followed the latest round of negotiations in the U.S. All of us are aspiring for a peace agreement that ends the conflict in the region. All of us affirm the issue of ending the conflict, but we have never asked how and what is […]

Palestinians must toughen up strategically to win freedom

Critics of the peace talks always ask the question, why should the Palestinian people who have lost so much give up the right to fight to get it back? The answer is simple. Do they want to fight to get it ALL back or do they want to fight for statehood? One is about a […]

Exclusive peace talks are easier to arrange, but is the result durable?

EAST MEREDITH, NY – The ongoing peace talks in the Middle East may bring an agreement. But more is needed – a lasting peace. In 1983, Lebanon signed a peace treaty with Israel under similar pressure-cooker conditions. During the civil war, the Lebanese were divided into two main political camps, one friendly to the West […]

The 50 cent solution: Solving the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy

I just returned from a television interview, the topic of which was again the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque.” It was not the best of interviews and I left unsure that I had conveyed my position. I was pressed on the need to compromise, “to show magnanimity towards the 70% of Americans who don’t want the […]

Yalla Peace: Palestinians have already recognized IsraelBy Ray Hanania

The acceptance of this country is not only inherent in the Palestinians’ repeated declarations but also in the fact that their leaders are sitting down and negotiating two states.In the reality of the Palestine-Israel conflict, the field where peace is played is the United States. That “stadium,” if you look at this like a sport, […]

God’s Humor in Promoting Taybeh

God’s Humor in Promoting Taybeh Maria C. Khoury, Ed. D. I am sitting in the middle of the wilderness and most of the days I am sincerely happy that the whole world is willing to come to me. I clearly have nothing to do with this fame since my brother-in-law, Nadim Khoury, worked extraordinarily hard […]

Burning the Quran between perceptions and realities

In the minds of hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world, it’s not a coincident that a small extremist church in Florida wants to burn copies of the Qur’an, while a huge controversy erupted in New York over the plans to build a Muslim cultural center few blocks away from where World Trade Center […]

Arabs, Muslims and Americans have too much in common

What message should the Arab and Muslim World get from the recent declaration by an obscure and angry Florida priest who announced plans to burn a Quran (Koran), the Islamic Holy Book? That message is clear. The threat to burn the Islamic equivalent of the Bible is offensive to most Americans. But that’s not what […]

Burning the Qur’an and Religious Intolerance in America

On 18th December 1499, seven years after the treaty of capitulation of the Muslim kingdom of Granada, Cardinal Ximeners of Toledo forcibly converted and baptized three thousand Muslim citizens and then proceeded to burn thousands of copies of the Qur’an in a huge public bonfire. Of course, there is no comparison here on the scale […]

The Sept. 11th ambulance chasers

Each year that passes, activists on both sides of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist assault try to outdo each other and themselves from the past years in over analyzing the crime. This year, another “Christian” leader in Florida has declared his plans to burn a copy of the Quran (Koran), the Muslim equivalent of the […]

Avoid the misunderstandings to get to peace

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House with President Obama, they were careful not to make fun of Obama, whose popularity is lower than his bow to the king of Saudi Arabia. Netanyahu didn’t ask Obama if he celebrates Ramadan, and Abbas didn’t call Obama a “Zionist […]
