State of siege, state of normalcy
The Gaza siege is still strangling a captive population to near death, but Western powers and Western media only focus on Hamas and its apparent obstinacy, writes Ramzy Baroud
El-Sanhouri, take two
The physical attacks that took place on the head of the State Council after the July 1952 Revolution are reminiscent of the attacks on the Supreme Constitutional Court today, writes Ahmed El-Tonsi
The Anan peace plan
The UN observer mission in Syria is a resounding failure, not least because of the self-aggrandising brinkmanship of its head, Kofi Anan, writes Ayman El-Amir
Democracy ofthe modern state
While Egypt has long had the foundations of the modern state, it failed in becoming democratic. But perhaps that can change now, writes Abdel-Moneim Said
Our government isn't protecting our rights
When it comes to American Arabs and Israel, the US government throws up its hands and leaves them to the whim and will of Israeli xenophobes, writes James Zogby
