  • The Pope in Palestine: O Little Town of Bethehem caught in Apartheid Wall
    • "Mr. Netanyahu tear down this wall" was the silent message that was so loud by his gesture of stopping at this barrier of apartheidism.

  • The Shameful Politicization of the Benghazi Consulate Attack
    • Professor, reading your articles always help me to understand topic you are writing about in more detail. For instance, I did not know that reasons for less security was a result of less funding because of congress with Paul Ryan's leadership at the helm. Wouldn't it be great if President Obama made it a rule to read your articles on the middle east and more to be more informed. Our President would win the next debate hands down. Back to your article, some of our media and other political bases are using the attack on US consulate in Benghazi to portray President Obama as a weak President. Which is completely false. My opinion, he in fact tougher on terrorism than our former President Bush. The use of over use drones alone prove my point. The American people need a more honest debate on the middle east and the root causes of what is happening there. An example for instance is the shooting of Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan. Fox is focused on making Pakistan look like a terrorist state, but that is far from the case. There is a mini war going on, especially in the Swat region between the government and the Taliban over the simple rights of girls to go to school. Was that reported? No. Mohammad Ali Jinnah had a dream of a democratic modern Islamic state. Was that reported? Again no. What we I am trying to say, that the media likes to see themselves as the forth branch of government that services as a checks and balance toward are three branches of government. But how can that be when they do not inform, but direct the American masses in an uninformed way. A la Iraq. I am fortunate to have seen you speak once at FAU and have reading your articles ever since, but their are many of us Americans who rely just on the news on TV. I guess my point is the media needs to be more unbiased to truly inform us as American citizens. As you pointed out in an earlier article, their are more wars that can be started under the wrong President being elected if our media does nor correct itself by being more unbiased and more informative.
