The great power games in the Middle East
By : Soumaya Ghannoushi - Tuesday October 18, 2005
It has become almost impossible to invoke Islam or Muslims without reference to the vague and ever changing categories of moderation and extremism. Two years ago, the Rand Corporation, a think-tank close to decision-making circles in Washington, issued a 66-page report entitled Civil Democratic Islam: Partners & Resources, which identified three elements within the Islamic mix, "the traditionalists, the fundamentalists, the modernists and secularists". The document recommended a (...)

Levee Breaks, 9-11 Part of Govt. Plot, Farrakhan Implies
By : Marc Morano - Friday October 14, 2005

(CNSNews.com) - Forty-eight hours before the Louis Farrakhan-led march of African Americans through the streets of Washington, D.C., the controversial minister Thursday repeated his charge that levees in New Orleans were intentionally blown up on Aug. 29, following Hurricane Katrina. He also implied that the Bush administration may have orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, and his followers on Saturday will commemorate (...)

Israel to lease Kinneret shore land to Evangelicals
By : Irit Rosenblum - Monday October 10, 2005
2 comments
By Irit Rosenblum Along the northeastern edge of Lake Kinneret, the landscape is quiet, the wind blows gently and the Korazim River meanders tranquilly, much as it did in the time of Jesus, but this undisturbed vista may not last much longer. Plans are underway to develop an evangelical Christian center in the area - a mini-Israel of sorts and perhaps a biblical theme park. As part of the project, Israel will initially lease 125 acres (500 dunams) in the area between Capernaum, Tabgha and (...)

BY JESSE JACKSON After his administration’s incompetence and indifference had lethal consequences in Katrina’s wake, President Bush has been scrambling to regain his footing. He’s called for an "unprecedented response to an unprecedented crisis." In religious services at the National Cathedral, he called on America to "erase this legacy of racism" exposed by those abandoned in Katrina’s wake. He’s called on Congress to appropriate more than $60 billion in (...)

My Little Talk With God
By : Rick Gagliano - Friday October 7, 2005
The President says he talks to God, so I thought I’d give it a try. God’s a pretty busy guy, being omnipotent, omniscient and all, but he does answer all calls, just like it says in the Bible (ask and you shall receive). So, I dialed up 1-877-CALLGOD and after going through the prompts (press 1 for saints, 2 for confessions, etc.) and listening to the hymns and chants while I was on hold for about 12 minutes (I liked the occasional voice of St. Peter breaking in and saying, "we (...)

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe snuck $10.8 million into the funding for a highway interchange sought by evangelist Pat Robertson near his Virginia headquarters. "I love" Pat Robertson, Chris Casteel of the Daily Oklahoman quoted Inhofe. But, the Oklahoma senator says, he earmarked the money for fellow Republican Senator John Warner whose office said they had requested only $5.8 million. Inhofe admits he tossed in the extra $5 million of pork into the new federal highway bill written in his (...)

By Rev. Ted Pike On Sept. 14, the US House of Representatives passed, 223-199, the ominous federal “anti-hate” bill, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005.

"Oliver Twist"

Roman Polanski’s astonishing film exquisitely captures both the anger and the cruel beauty of Dickens’ great novel. By Stephanie Zacharek Sometimes you look at a movie adaptation of a classic book and it’s as if you’re reading it with the filmmaker, turning the pages together. Roman Polanski’s "Oliver Twist" takes the useless question of whether reading is "better" than moviegoing and renders it academic: This is that rare movie version of a great novel in (...)

Sunday 04 September 2005, 17:22 Makka Time, 14:22 GMT I have spent much of the last four years scavenging for medieval manuscripts, in an attempt to study medieval European representations of Islam. I am generally averse to sweeping statements, but I will say this: I am yet to encounter a tradition and historical experience as profoundly distorted as Islam’s has been and continues to be to the present day. And although we are relentlessly pulled away from the ontological why (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
