No Military Solution for Iran or Palestine

Before dealing directly with Iran, I believe that the U.S. must put more attention to reaching a comprehensive solution for Iraq.

Equal Rights For All Israel's Citizens

Israel's Palestinian citizens didn't come to Israel - Israel came to them.

Don't Continue Israel's Status Quo

Mr. President, please don't make the mistake of protecting the Israelis from their own arrogance.

To Gaza's Victims, Politics Means Little

The international community, obsessed with Iraq and Afghanistan, allowed this conflict to fester into helplessness.

Revive Bush's Promise for Mideast Peace

Carry out his own public promise to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians before the end of his term.

Israel Must Adapt To Survive

The state of Israel as it is now will not exist in 100 years. But if it changes, it will happily celebrate its 100th birthday.

Step Up Your Mideast Game, America

If the U.S. wants to be a referee between Israel and Palestine, it needs to step up its game.

Lifting Ban Wins Turkish Hearts and Minds

Lifting Turkey’s headscarf ban is an issue of personal rights, not secularism.

Waiting to Catch Obama's Wave

Only the Arab world hasn’t seen major change in its leadership for over thirty years.

Valentine’s Day has no religious basis, so everyone in the Middle East can – and does – celebrate it.

The Annapolis Summit
Palestinians’ Power Lies in Rejection

Palestinians can’t afford not to attend, but worry they’ll be blamed again for failure if they do.

Israel Lobby Makes America Blind

The U.S. is finally realizing that a Palestinian state is good for America. If it weren’t for the Israel lobby, America might have realized that a long time ago - and avoided much Middle East misery.

Violence Not a Shortcut to End Conflict

Last spring, the Palestinian prime minister's spokesman wrote a courageous article criticizing a phenomenon he felt was prevailing among his people: trying to resolve every conflict by violence. The crisis in Pakistan this week shows further how individuals, movements and governments have lost patience with the time it takes to resolve conflicts, and are looking for shortcuts by using force.

Visit Checkpoints, Occupied Lands

I think the first thing that Blair as envoy should do is to travel throughout the occupied Palestinian territories and meet with ordinary people. He should visit the only crossing point out of the West Bank and realize the enormity of restrictions imposed on the movement of people and goods. He'll need to know this if he wants to succeed.

In Lawless Gaza, Neutrality Doesn't Matter

Alan Johnston's situation has nothing to do with his neutrality but with the lawlessness in Gaza. When I visited Ramallah on a delegation from the International Press Institute, Hamas ministers and President Abbas all told us they were against his abduction and praised his work. But there is no enforceable law that protects him.

Richard Gere Attracts Israelis & Palestinians

Richard Gere came to visit the Middle East a few years ago and attracted more attention than most politicians. He was also careful to say that he was coming to listen, rather than to make statements. Mr. Gere listened to everyone, from Hamas supporters to Jewish settlers, and in turn all sides flocked to see him.

South Africa's Perspective

While the world press has widely reported the controversy surrounding South Africa's invitation to the Palestinian prime minister, it has failed to publish in full what the South African intelligence minister said defending the decision. I am reprinting it below. The idea that this is a reward to terrorism avoids dealing with the underlying issue.

West Must Give Aid to Exporters of Labor

The Western countries have a direct responsibility to remove the causes of political and financial instability in many of the countries that are exporting immigrants.

An Easy Drive From Israel to Palestine

Amman, Jordan/Ramallah, Palestine - My unexpected prediction for 2007 is simply that one will be able to drive from Amman to Jerusalem and on to Gaza....

Abbas Throws Down the Gauntlet

Ramallah, Palestine - For the second time since taking office, Mahmoud Abbas has taken a strong position. He has finally laid down the gauntlet for the opposition. Now Hamas must either create a national unity government that can end the...
