How can we
bridge the gap of misunderstanding and build on mutual respect and
trust between Arab and American People?
The US war against Iraq
Itís beginning to appear that
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein isnít as stupid as the Bush
administration believed him to be. He has readmitted the
inspectors, heís cooperating with them, and heís made his
declaration: We have no weapons of mass destruction.... What are the real
motives of the US for wanting to go to war?
may come as a shock, but the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) investigation into the
tragic death of American peace activist Rachel Corrie concluded that the IDF was
not to blame for her death. The investigation report claims that Rachel Corrie
"was struck as she stood behind a mound of earth that was created by an
engineering vehicle operating in the area and she was hidden from the view of
the vehicle's operator...Corrie was struck by dirt and a slab of concrete
resulting in her death." An eyewitness tells a different story. "Rachel was
kneeling 20 meters in front of the bulldozer on flat ground. There was no way
she could not have been seen," said Joe Smith, a fellow peace activist. Not only
does the IDF blameless, but the slain Corrie, who died when run over by an IDF
bulldozer in Rafah, Gaza, as she tried to prevent the demolition of a
Palestinian home, acted "illegally and dangerously."
