President Obama is traveling to Egypt this week to deliver his promised address to the Muslim world at Cairo university. The US government is trying hard to improve the image of the US. No matter how good his intentions are, President Obama is still traveling in a very hostile environment. The Muslim Brotherhood, in particular, […]

War has no eyes.

Memorial day is a day of remembrance for those who fought or lost their lives to protect America. Peace is better than war. But sometimes war is necessary to stop killing. War is also a way to make a durable peace. No matter whether just or unjust, war has terrible side effects. War creates humanitarian […]

The Chinese government’s campaign of terror and intimidation toward any country that sympathizes with Tibet seems to be working well. Many voices were raised against Madam Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when she visited China, because she did not denounce the human rights abuses by the government in Beijing. China is certainly a big player […]

When a king has good counselors, his reign is peaceful.

The new approach of the Obama administration toward Iran is certainly the best chance for real peace between the US and Iran. When the politics of two countries diverge, it is the people of both countries that suffer the most. The Obama administration understands the influence of Iran in the Arab world. I don’t see […]

A man with too much ambition cannot sleep in peace.

The U.S. wants talks with moderate Afghan Talibans to bring peace in that devastated country: the same approach that the U.S. had in Iraq with the Sunni. However, Afghanistan is not Iraq. Definitely, the war in Afghanistan is not winnable by military means. The Obama administration is certainly very creative in trying to solve problems. […]

He who does not look ahead always remains behind.

In his first interview as President of the United States on Al Arabiya, the new president sent a clear message to the Middle East that he is not a clone of George W. Bush. His message gave hope to the Arab world, hope to one day see peace. Tackling this difficult task so early at […]

A distant fire does not burn.

Iranian protesters burned Obama‘s picture and the flags of American and Israel, to show their solidarity with the people of Gaza and Hamas. This behavior is not surprising. It is the culture in the Middle East. Iran supports anything anti-American and anti-Jewish. This kind of behavior also sends a message to the new American administration […]

You must answer the devil in his own language.

After many warnings, the State of Israel retaliated against the constant attacks from Hamas. I would be insensitive to say “they told you so.” More than 200 people were killed include innocent children. Many questions crossed my mind this morning when I read the news from the Middle East. What’s the best solution for peace […]

The plant God favors will grow even without rain.

The state of Israel got a “Christmas gift” today — not from Santa, but from Hamas. At least five Kassam rockets and several mortar shells landed in southern Israel. The government of Israel issued a warning to Hamas to stop their attack or face a massive invasion of Gaza. Israel’s retaliation would mean a flow […]

A woman’s clothes are the price her husband pays for peace.

Merry Christmas. Christmas is a time to share gifts with family and people that you care for. Christmas is also one of the most stressful moments for men, last-minute shoppers who sometimes don’t know what to buy for their spouses and friends. Women, on the other hand, remember holidays and plan in advance, therefore finding […]
