Arab World: A historical and cultural entity dispersed across a wide geographical area under the administrative, intellectual, social, and cultural domination of the Arab empire. The Arab world, under the impetus of Islam, by the eighth century A.D., extended from Arabia in the Middle East to all of northern Africa, southern Spain, Sardinia, and Sicily. Close contact was maintained with Greek and Jewish culture. While the principal service of the Arabs to medicine was the preservation of Greek culture, the Arabs themselves were the originators of algebra, chemistry, geology, and many of the refinements of civilization.

Caesarean section rates in the Arab region: a cross-national study. (1/10)

This study had a dual purpose of estimating population- and hospital-based caesarean section rates in 18 Arab countries and examining the association between these rates and important indicators of socioeconomic development. Data on caesarean section were based on the most recent population-based surveys undertaken in each country. Descriptive statistics and bivariate correlation coefficients were used for the analysis. Specifically, Spearman's rank correlation coefficients were used to analyze the associations between caesarean section rates and important population parameters. Results revealed that four Arab countries had population-based caesarean rates below 5%, while only three countries had rates above 15%. The remaining 11 countries had caesarean rates ranging between 5-15%. Higher hospital-based rates were reported for all countries. Differences in caesarean section rates between private and public hospitals were also noted. Highly significant associations were observed between population caesarean rates and female literacy, percentage urban, infant mortality rate, and the proportion of physicians per 100 000 people. The "caesarean section epidemic" observed in countries of Latin America is not yet evident in the 18 Arab countries examined. Rather, emphasis should be on improving access to appropriate obstetrical interventions in case of complications in a number of countries where rates were well below 5%.  (+info)

Arabic sign language: a perspective. (2/10)

Sign language in the Arab World has been recently recognized and documented. Many efforts have been made to establish the sign language used in individual countries, including Jordan, Egypt, Libya, and the Gulf States, by trying to standardize the language and spread it among members of the Deaf community and those concerned. Such efforts produced many sign languages, almost as many as Arabic-speaking countries, yet with the same sign alphabets. This article gives a tentative account of some sign languages in Arabic through reference to their possible evolution, which is believed to be affected by the diglossic situation in Arabic, and by comparing some aspects of certain sign languages (Jordanian, Palestinian, Egyptian, Kuwaiti, and Libyan) for which issues such as primes, configuration, and movement in addition to other linguistic features are discussed. A contrastive account that depicts the principal differences among Arabic sign languages in general and the spoken language is given.  (+info)

Internet-based search of randomised trials relevant to mental health originating in the Arab world. (3/10)

BACKGROUND: The internet is becoming a widely used source of accessing medical research through various on-line databases. This instant access to information is of benefit to busy clinicians and service users around the world. The population of the Arab World is comparable to that of the United States, yet it is widely believed to have a greatly contrasting output of randomised controlled trials related to mental health. This study was designed to investigate the existence of such research in the Arab World and also to investigate the availability of this research on-line. METHODS: Survey of findings from three internet-based potential sources of randomised trials originating from the Arab world and relevant to mental health care. RESULTS: A manual search of an Arabic online current contents service identified 3 studies, MEDLINE, EMBASE, and PsycINFO searches identified only 1 study, and a manual search of a specifically indexed, study-based mental health database, PsiTri, revealed 27 trials. CONCLUSION: There genuinely seem to be few trials from the Arab world and accessing these on-line was problematic. Replication of some studies that guide psychiatric/psychological practice in the Arab world would seem prudent.  (+info)

Health indicators and human development in the Arab region. (4/10)

BACKGROUND: The present paper deals with the relationship between health indicators and human development in the Arab region. Beyond descriptive analysis showing geographic similarities and disparities inter countries, the main purpose is to point out health deficiencies and to propose pragmatic strategies susceptible to improve health conditions and consequently enhance human development in the Arab world. METHODS: Data analysis using Principal Components Analysis is used to compare the achievements of the Arab countries in terms of direct and indirect health indicators. The variables (indicators) are seen to be well represented on the circle of correlation, allowing for interesting interpretation and analysis. The 19 countries are projected on the first and second plane respectively. RESULTS: The results given by the present analysis give a good panorama of the Arab countries with their geographic similarities and disparities. The high correlation between health indicators and human development is well illustrated and consequently, countries are classified by groups having similar human development. The analysis shows clearly how health deficits are impeding human development in the majority of Arab countries and allows us to formulate suggestions to improve health conditions and enhance human development in the Arab World. DISCUSSION: The discussion is based on the link between different direct and indirect health indicators and the relationship between these indicators and human development index. Without including the GDP indicator, our analysis has shown that the 19 Arab countries may be classified, independently of their geographic proximity, in three different groups according to their global human development level (Low, Medium and High). Consequently, while identifying health deficiencies in each group, the focus was made on the countries presenting a high potential of improvement in health indicators. In particular, maternal mortality and infant mortality which are really challenging health authorities of the first and third group were critically discussed. CONCLUSION: The Arab countries have made substantial economic and social progress during the last decades by improving life expectancy and reducing maternal and infant mortality. However, considering its natural wealth and human resources, the Arab region has accomplished less than expected in terms of human development. Huge social inequalities and health inequities exist inter and intra Arab countries. In most Arab countries, a large percentage of populations, especially in rural areas, are deprived of access to health facilities. Consequently, many women still die during pregnancy and labour, yielding unacceptable levels of maternal and infant mortality. However, the problem is seen to be more complex, going beyond geography and technical accessibility to health care, it compasses, among others, levels of literacy, low social and economic status of women, qualification of health staff, general behaviour and interactions between patients and medical personnel (including corruption).  (+info)

Hospital-based caesarean section in the Arab region: an overview. (5/10)

This article provides an overview of hospital-based rates of caesarean delivery in 18 Arab countries and the association between these rates and selected demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Data on caesarean section were based on 2 of the most recent national hospital-based surveys in each country and on published studies based on hospital samples. High levels of caesarean delivery were found in Egypt (26% in 2003), followed by Sudan (20% in 1993). Six countries and the West Bank area of Palestine had rates >15% and 11 countries and Gaza had rates between 5% and 15%. The findings indicate an increasing trend of caesarean section delivery in the region. Policies aiming at reducing surgical deliveries should seek to identify and address these risk factors.  (+info)

This set of eleven essays addresses the tightening water resource problems of the Arab regions twenty countries. The authors discuss themes of water conflict and provide detailed looks at four sub-areas: the Maghreb, the Nile countries, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Mashrek. This century has seen a technological drive to enlarge traditional surface and groundwater supplies and to expand irrigated farming for rapidly growing and progressively more prosperous populations. But now the region is facing absolute limits on its fresh water. Water in the Arab World focuses on todays need to move toward rationalized new patterns of using water within the national economies, a transition often described as moving from supply to demand management. The change calls for intensified national legislative and planning efforts concerning water, with serious consideration of desalination and conservation, as well as of pricing and market approaches to the allocation of a very constrained supply. ...

This article evaluates Arab public opinion with the "Arab Opinion Index" by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies (ACRPS) in Doha, Qatar. The Index covers 12 Arab countries with 85 percent of the population of the entire Arab world. The data was weighted by UNDP population figures in order to arrive at conclusions about the totality of opinions in the Arab states. There is indeed overwhelming support for democracy and change in the region, but, at the same time, the data imply real basic weaknesses of civil society support for the structures of democracy.. Ever since the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya in 2011, the question has arisen as to how big the real support for democracy in the Arab world is. Recent events in Egypt have led many observers to think that instead of an "Arab Spring," one should rather talk about an "Arab Winter."[1] Thousands of reports and opinion pieces in the worlds media and scholarly articles have been published on the issue, but hard facts on mass ...

A: The central argument of this book is that to understand the Arab Spring you need to understand how media use has changed in recent years.. It has been 15 years since the last "wave" of democratization. Between 1989 and 1995, many remnants of the Soviet Union and failed authoritarian regimes in other parts of the world turned themselves into variously functional electoral democracies. But as a region, North Africa and the Middle East were noticeably devoid of popular democracy movements - until the early months of 2011.. Democratization movements had existed long before technologies such as mobile phones and the Internet came to these countries. But with these technologies, people sharing an interest in democracy built extensive networks, created social capital and organized political action.. Whether or not this Arab Spring leads to long-term entrenchment of democratic institutions and cultures in the Arab state-system is a question mark, but one which requires a critical examination of the ...
Monday 28 January 2019 (RBB News) - Sudans President Omar al-Bashir has said there are efforts to destabilize his country through an attempt to replicate the so-called Arab Spring.. He was speaking in Egypts capital Cairo after meeting his counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.. It is his second foreign trip since protests began in December.. The protests started over cuts to bread and fuel subsidies but have since morphed into anger at Mr Bashirs 30-year rule.. Protesters have been heard shouting: "The people want the fall of the regime".. The slogan is adopted from the Arab Spring - a wave of protests which started in 2010 and spread across the Middle East and North Africa and led to civil wars..

Read "High Food Prices an Unlikely Cause for the Start of the Arab Spring" by Richard Cincotta, posted on the New Security Beat, April 2014.. Just months after popular uprisings toppled Tunisia and Egypts authoritarian regimes, a trio of complex-system researchers published a brief article linking these demonstrations with high levels of the UN Food and Agriculture Organizations international Food Price Index. Marco Lagi, Karla Bertrand, and Yaneer Bar-Yams model, which predicts outbreaks of deadly social conflict when the index tops 210, has since become a popular explanation wielded by many for bouts of popular unrest, including the Arab Spring and overthrow of Ukraines government. But were food prices really an underlying "hidden" cause for the start of a wave of instability that is still being felt today?.

Our data demonstrates that rheumatology publications from the AL countries still lag behind other world regions. Several factors may influence the underrepresentation of rheumatology research in the region. These may include bias from journals toward publishing articles from their country of origin in favor of articles of local interest, WoS may not include journals from middle to low-income countries [12] or articles may be published in local Arab journals that are not indexed on WoS [13, 14]. In addition, the productivity of a country may be skewed based on its number of indexed journals, which are relatively few in the Arab world [15, 16]. Within the region, however, and over the period of 1976 to 2014, we found a consistent and significant growth in the number of publications. This is not unexpected as the world overall is seeing an increase in rheumatology publications, particularly from emerging economies [4, 17]. The Arab world in particular, has developed significantly over the past ...

We have stood on many occasions against political forces urging us to overlook the dictatorial approach of this regime on the pretext of standing against the Zionist Entity and we consider this approach opportunistic, harmful and against the development of the revolutionary movement and combativeness in the Arab world and national liberation. Patriotism and resistance to colonialism and to Zionist and imperialist plans facing us cannot be in contradiction with the peoples enjoyment of their full democratic and political freedoms, or their condition at the forefront. It is true that political freedoms alone are not sufficient to realization of national aims, but the sovereignty of the Arab peoples and the revival of the Arab world and unity in the face of imperialism will not be achieved without them. Why would democracy for the Arab peoples not antagonize the Zionist Entity if this were not a threat to its very existence?! And why has America supported and still support the tyranny of Arab ...
The first trend Roy cited to back up this thesis is the sharp drop in fertility levels in the Arab world since the late 1980s and the 1990s. Several Arab countries, especially those in North Africa, now have birthrates of around two children per woman, close but still above the European average. Tunisias birthrate is actually lower than Frances. "The generation that is now on the job market is the last generation of big families," said Roy, who is now director of the Mediterranean Programme at the European University Institute in Florence. "Its a generation that has many fewer children and marries much later.". There is also more equality between men and women because theyve all been educated, he said, often to a university level. Even with the high unemployment in many countries, this generation of 20- and 30-somethings has less economic pressure to care for their ageing parents (because there are still many siblings) or for their own families (because theyre not having as many ...

The building was constructed from 1981 to 1987 and has floor space of 181,850 square feet (16,894 m2). The Architecture-Studio together with Jean Nouvel, won the 1981 design competition.[3] This project is a result of funds from both the League of Arab States and the French government, with the cost of the building totaling around €230,000,000.[4] The building acts as a buffer zone between the Jussieu Campus of Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI), built in large rationalist urban blocks, and the Seine. The river façade follows the curve of the waterway, reducing the hardness of a rectangular grid and offering an inviting view from the Sully Bridge. At the same time the building appears to fold itself back in the direction of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. In contrast to the curved surface on the river side, the southwest façade is an uncompromisingly rectangular glass-clad curtain wall. It faces a large square public space that opens in the direction of the Île de la Cité ...

By Allen Hibbard. The central issues and conflicts in A Banquet for Seaweed (first published in Arabic as Walîma li ashâb al-bahr in Cyprus in 1983) resonate throughout the Arab World today. Set in the 1960s and 1970s, the novel portrays characters who must forge paths midst the horrors of authoritarian regimes, modern political and social values, rising religious fundamentalism, residues of colonialism, powerful foreign influences (cultural, economic, and military), sectarian and geographic divisions within the Arab world, and narrowly defined roles for women. In a bold and often lyrical style, the novel exposes passionate and frank debates about controversial issues, often treating taboo topics in ways that have offended readers beliefs and tastes. When in 2000 the Egyptian Ministry of Cultures revealed plans to republish the novel, protesters rioted near Al-Azhar University in Cairo, spurred by press reports of its heretical content.. The novels narrative follows the lives of two Iraqi ...

Then theres the relation to the world. In the 1980s Israel was hated by the Arab world, the Communist world, and the so-called Third World. (The Economist once quipped that the Non-Aligned Nations lost the ability to be non-aligned against the West once the Soviet Union was gone). Today Israel is still hated by the Arab world, even by most of the Muslim world, though the animosity has its gradations, and manipulating them can be useful. The Soviet world is no more, but some parts of it are staunchly pro-Israel (Poland, say, or the Czech Republic), or cynically so, such as Russia itself. Much of the Third World deals with us on Realpolitik tracks, such as the Brazilian president, hardly a good friend, who recently visited us for his own purposes. The two most significant changes, however, have been the relations with China and India, both of which are vastly better now than then. Both are ancient civilizations which spent their first two or three millennia having no interaction with the Jews - ...

Discussion. Mental disorders are an important cause of long term disability and dependency.14 Epidemiological surveys and services in Asia have indicated that there are 680 million people who are likely to succumb to vagaries of psychiatric disorder and yet in terms of services, there is one mental health professional per million population.1 The question remains whether people with mental illness seek help and what is the underlying psycho-cultural background that shapes such care seeking.. As it has already been observed, people with mental illnesses, in the Arab world for example, tend to seek help from traditional healers.15 With recent mushrooming of psychiatric hospitals, some people with mental illnesses also seek help from such specialized psychiatric hospitals. In addition to specialized psychiatric services, and complementary and alternative medicine, some walk-in psychiatric clinics have mushroomed in different parts of the Arab world including Iraq. This retrospective study has ...

And even after all that, we still go to it, usually as a last option. It is cheap and cheerful and if we need to eat fast, we opt for McDonalds. In the Arab world, a meal from McDonalds is not cheap. In fact - it is something that families save up money to go to on special occasions. In Abu Dhabi, Ive not passed a MaccyDs that isnt heaving. It is not just McDonalds that has such a special presence but most American food chains. Getting in to Fuddruckers in Marina Mall requires an hour waiting time, KFC is always busy, it sometime seems that it would ...

In a tiny hall in Nasarallah, a poor agricultural village in the hills beyond Tunisias historic Islamic city of Kairouan, Jamila Brahid is irate. Sitting in a huddle of country women wearing traditional rural headscarves, the 50-year-old villager is proud to have had a primary school education in a place where many of her female friends - mostly seasonal fruit-pickers - cannot read or write. A carpet-weaver who owed debts on wool and has never married because of her obligations looking after elderly relatives, she gives thanks for Tunisias prized status as the most feminist country in the Arab world. But, she says, Sundays elections will be the true test.. ...
The European Parliament honoured five Arab Spring activists with its Sakharov human rights prize Wednesday, including the Tunisian who sparked region-wide uprising
The Arab Spring was a series of anti-government protests, uprisings and armed rebellions that spread across the Middle East in early 2011. But their purpose, relative success is cancel out it self because the NWO is strongly behind it by giving a people false hope that they can change the system to become like the…

Goodspeed Analysis: The Arab Spring saw regimes toppled by protesters using the web to ignite revolutions. Technology apparently shifted the balance in favour of the repressed. But history can be deceptive
Al-Fanar Media provides balanced, accurate and independent coverage of all aspects of academic life in the Arab world The publication, bilingual in English and Arabic, serves readers who work in Arab higher education and those who have a stake in it, as well as creating a platform for dialogue for those within and without the Arab region.
The question seemed simple. A European official wanted to know if the peace process was just around the corner or far away.. On the surface of it, one can tick off a number of positive signals. Palestinian and Israeli negotiators recently exchanged letters outlying their various political positions as to the best way forward. Israels current expanded coalition government is large enough to be able to take difficult decisions without the fear of any small faction blackmailing the government. Europe seems to be united in its single-minded push to ensure that the peace process moves forward without any more delay. The US will most likely return to the issue after the November elections. The Arab Spring is moving forward and bringing more popularly supported leaders who are unlikely to be very friendly to Israel.. That seems to make the present political atmosphere a golden opportunity to make peace, not only with the Palestinians but also with the Arab world, whose peace offer has yet to be ...
An analyst, author and former Israeli Ambassador to Mauritania, Boaz Bismuth will be a visiting scholar of The Shalom Institute in August. He will deliver a series of public lectures beginning on Monday 19 August and will appear at the AICE Israeli Film Festival and the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival.. He will be speaking about Israels red line and battle lines, the state of the Arab world and latest developments in the "Arab Spring", and the re-energised peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.. In an article published yesterday, Bismuth warned, in relation to the ongoing threat of al-Qaida, "one more victory like this and weve lost.". "It was convenient for the American government to think that jihadist terrorism was on its death bed", he writes." After all, this coincides with Obamas desire to disengage from the Middle East, bring the troops home from Afghanistan, and primarily to focus on the region that really is interesting and influential today: Far East Asia and the Pacific ...

A retired Saudi general visiting Israel this week to promote the Arab Peace Initiative said on Sunday that a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would eliminate Irans excuse for supporting regional terrorist groups. Dr. Anwar Eshki, who was leading a delegation of academics and businessmen on an extremely rare visit seeking to encourage discussion of the Saudi-led peace plan, told Army Radio that normalized ties between Israel and the Arab world were contingent on the cementing of a peace deal with the Palestinians.. "There will be no peace with Arab countries before there is peace with the Palestinians," said Eshki, whose group met with Israeli officials and MKs in Jerusalem. "To my knowledge, there is no cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia in counter-terrorism efforts, and though they share the same approach in seeking a solution, we want Israel to put an end to what has caused this terrorism.". Asked if he believed Israel to be the source of regional terrorism, ...

What Ive been trying to understand for some time now is how Arab literary texts during the Islamic heydey dealt with the matter casually, in spite of the clear Islamic position against the practice, and contrasting this with the hysterical obsession we have in the Arab world today with sexual perversion. I believe that in many ways, this hysteria is a product of how power has moulded Western societies and discourse about sexuality, something which has, in fact, been implanted onto our own Arab people through occupation. Victorian prudishness regarding sex is one of the unfortunate residues of European occupation that has distorted our perceptions of sex and how we deal with it, how we relate it to children and how we practice it ourselves. It is now seen as a dirty, hidden thing, ideally between man and wife, and to which children are not to be made aware of. A secret pleasure. Yet, a quick look at many Hadith by the Prophet Muhammad as well as in the Quran shows us that there is a frankness ...

The Pan Arab Games are a regional multi-sport event held between nations from the Arab World. The first Games were held in 1953 in Alexandria, Egypt. Intended to be held every four years since, political turmoil as well as financial difficulties has made the event an unstable one. Women were first allowed to compete in 1985.. ...

In the Arab world the ney is traditionally used in pastoral areas, showing a preference for smaller, higher-pitched neys. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening. This is a high-quality production from beginning to end; synths are kept at a minimum and the instruments range from traditional ney, oud, kanun, and rebab to guitars and saxophones.

A recent issue of Science, the weekly journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, was devoted to research into “Ardi†or Ardipithecus ramidus, a 4.4m-year-old hominid species whose discovery deepens the understanding of human evolution. These latest studies suggest, among other things, that rather than descending from a closely related species such as the chimpanzee, the hominid branch parted earlier than previously thought from the common ancestral tree.. In much of the Arab world, coverage of the research took a different spin. “American Scientists Debunk Darwin†, exclaimed the headline in al-Masry al-Youm, Egypt’s leading independent daily. “Ardi Refutes Darwin’s Theory†, chimed the website of al-Jazeera, the region’s most-watched television channel. Scores of comments from readers celebrated this news as a blow to Western materialism and a triumph for Islam. Two or three lonely readers wrote in to complain that the ...
The White House is indicating its top concern ahead of the conference will be to convince Arab nations to attend. A senior administration official told the New York Times, "Were trying to rally the Arab world for support of this process, and they are master fence-sitters." But the Bush administration has refused to endorse a five-year-old Arab League-Palestinian plan offering Israel full peace in return for a complete withdrawal from the Occupied Territories. Israel has essentially rejected the deal, claiming it would only agree to unspecified elements. Israeli leaders have long vowed to hold on to the West Banks major settlement blocs and water resources. ...

Currently, Tariq is planning to educate young artists in the Arab world on digital art and promote this form of art through exhibitions and workshops.
Muslim fundamentalists, who want to bring back the Middle Ages rule by caliphs, are gaining strength in the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Arab world. The Hizb ut-Tahrir movement calls for a peaceful Muslin religious revolution and appeals to many middle-class people fed up with their leaders.. The movement is exploiting general rejection by PA Arabs of Hamas and Fatah leadership, according to a report featured in several foreign newspapers. "Why are we watching infidels prosper in this world and not stopping them?" Sheik Abu Abdullah told a crowd in Ramallah. "Muslims in China, Indonesia, Pakistan and everywhere in their thousands...demand the return of [Allahs] rule on Earth." Hizb ut-Tahrir rejects entering politics because it does not believe in democracy. It preaches non-violence, but experts believe the movement allows Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups to recruit members. The movement, the name of which means Party of Liberation, began in Jerusalem in 1953 and strives for a ...

Younger people didnt ace this test either (yes, you hear me sighing in relief). They did better early on, but within three days young people did as poorly as older folk. So whats all this mean? "This phenomenon may help explain why large numbers of Americans incorrectly think that Saddam Hussein was directly involved in planning the Sept 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and that most of the Sept. 11 hijackers were Iraqi," says the article. "Similarly, many in the Arab world are convinced that the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 was not the work of Arab terrorists but was a controlled demolition; that 4,000 Jews working there had been warned to stay home that day; and that the Pentagon was struck by a missile rather than a plane ...
S/NF) Egypt will not take any action that could be perceived as collaboration in Israels siege of Gaza, and they have been hyper-sensitive to any suggestion that foreigners are assisting them or overseeing their efforts to counter smuggling. Aboul Gheit publicly distanced Egypt from our January MOU with Israel to combat arms smuggling into Gaza, although he knew about it in advance and consulted with Secretary Rice and me about its contents. The Egyptians do not want to be stuck holding the Gaza bag, and must be able to point the finger of blame at Israel for the plight of the Palestinians. At the same time, Egypt has withstood scathing and widespread criticism in the Arab world for refusing to open the Rafah border crossing to supply Gaza. Even during the height of the December fighting, the Egyptians only sent medicine and medical supplies through the Rafah border; all other humanitarian goods went through the Israeli crossing at Kerem Shalom. They likewise insist that Rafah will only reopen ...
After 750 CE, the Muslim Arab world had the works of Hippocrates, Galen and Sushruta translated into Arabic, and Islamic physicians engaged in some significant medical research. Notable Islamic medical pioneers include the polymath, Avicenna, who, along with Imhotep and Hippocrates, has also been called the "father of medicine". He wrote The Canon of Medicine, considered one of the most famous books in the history of medicine.[15] Others include Abulcasis, Avenzoar,[] Ibn al-Nafis,] and Averroes. Rhazes was one of first to question the Greek theory of humorism, which nevertheless remained influential in both medieval Western and medieval Islamic medicine.[]The Islamic Bimaristan hospitals were an early example of public hospitals. However, the fourteenth and fifteenth century Black Deathwas just as devastating to the Middle East as to Europe, and it has even been argued that Western Europe was generally more effective in recovering from the pandemic than the Middle East. In the early modern ...

Lemons were known to the Jews of Jerusalem, who, according to Josephus, pelted an errant high priest with them during a festival in the 90s BC,[4] although Jewish tradition maintains this was done with citrons (specifically the Balady citron), not lemons.[5] They entered Europe near southern Italy no later than the first century AD, during the time of Ancient Rome. However, they were not widely cultivated. They were later introduced to Persia and then to Iraq and Egypt around 700 AD. The lemon was first recorded in literature in a 10th-century Arabic treatise on farming, and was also used as an ornamental plant in early Islamic gardens.[1][2] It was distributed widely throughout the Arab world and the Mediterranean region between 1000 and 1150. The first substantial cultivation of lemons in Europe began in Genoa in the middle of the 15th century.[2] The lemon was later introduced to the Americas in 1493 when Christopher Columbus brought lemon seeds to Hispaniola on his voyages.

Sometimes doing what you love can have outcomes that you never would have expected. Nevertheless, you become so passionate about that one thing that you will not let anything or anyone stand in your way. All you care about is the journey that the passion takes you on and what lies up ahead. For Amjed Kadhim Al-Rickaby, a teaching assistant for Arabic at Sam Houston State University and an Iraq native, teaching a language is the passion that drives him. "My mission is to teach people that through dialogue, peace and education, we can rid the world of numerous problems," Al-Rickaby said.. Al-Rickaby pursued a degree in education at the University of Babylon, one of the most highly regarded universities in the Arab world. Even with the lack of essential learning necessities required to complete a higher-level education, he never gave up.. "There was no modern technology or modern teaching methods," he said. "However, I successfully completed my studies, despite the absence of resources.". After ...
The video does not tell when the currency will become operational. But it will consist of gold dinars and silver dirhams designed to reflect the groups ideology of re-establishing a global caliphate.. The five dinar coin depicts a map of the globe denoting the territory the Ummah (Arabic word for nation) which includes Constantinople (Istanbul), Rome and America.. The one dirham silver coin has a spear and a shield symbolizing jihad (spiritual struggle/war).. The hour-long video titled The Rise of the Khilafah and the Return of the Gold Dinar uses charts and sound bites to explain how the group is going to set up a new, interest-free financial system that will take the world back to the golden age of the Islamic empire.. The groups plan to re-introduce gold coins may be to connect itself to the history of Islamic coinage when, according to the documentary, "the Arab world was at peak imperial strength.". But is this quixotic idea going to work? Not likely.. For one thing, just like the ...
But in some places, people have been looking at diversity for generations. In the Arab world, Egypt is one of the great examples. Alexandria used to be a hodgepodge of Greeks, Italians, Sephardic Jews and many others, in addition to the present-day mix of Muslims and Christians, including Copts, Catholics and Protestants. All of them were Egyptians and spoke Arabic as their common national tongue - but each group had a complicated and complex narrative.. Its a type of multiculturalism I find interesting. As a Briton I am constantly reminded of how much tension there is in the British and wider European public sphere regarding the word "multiculturalism". Its basic premise of respecting diversity is seldom questioned, but many of the details are. As I study the Muslim world, I find many examples of multiculturalism existing in a much more relaxed setting.. Take Malaysia. There, Islam is very present in the public sphere, but there is a recognition that non-Muslims are also part of the public ...

Ive been keeping track of events in the Arab world only from a distance. Theres been a lot of excitement on twitter and Facebook. Since Im not an unalloyed enthusiast for democracy Ive not joined in in the exultation. But Im very concerned at what I perceive are unrealistic assumptions and false correspondences. This is a big issue because the public is very ignorant of world history and geography. For example, I was listening to a radio show where Roger Cohen was a guest. Cohen covers the Middle East, so he is familiar with many of the issues to a much greater depth than is feasible for the "Average Joe." In response to a caller who was an ethnic Egyptian American and a Coptic Christian who was concerned about possible persecution of religious minorities Cohen pointed to Turkey, which is ruled by Islamists, and has "many" Christians. His tone was of dismissal and frustration. And that was that.. Lets look more closely. About 5-10% of Egyptians are Christian, with most estimates being ...
I think you miss the point. I think there is a distinct feeling of being separate. The only time I didnt feel that was in the weeks following the Sept 11th disaster. I felt like I was part of a nation-wide mourning, sorta. But we all cary on our separate lives, in our separate APARTments, in our own separate little cars, and in our own separate little worlds. There is no sense of community, there is no sense that your neighbor is one of your closest friends and allies, and there is no sense that you are a part of something greater. All you feel is a connection with the few remote people you can find commonalities with. People in the US think of people in the Arab world as "those people" and they all think of us the same (or worse I am sure). It is sad really ...
The Tehran bagman for the CIA was Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., Theodores grandson. The Agencys other men for the Middle East were less patrician but similarly unqualified: Miles Copeland, Jr., a jazz trumpeter from Alabama with a few college hours in music at Tuscaloosa and no substantive knowledge of the Arab world; James Critchfield, educated at North Dakota Agricultural College in the late 1930s, then a military prison commandant in occupied Germany who befriended one of those useful Nazis; and James Jesus Angleton of Boise, who had followed a mediocre (if racy) career at Yale with OSS intrigues in Italy (in which he made good use of prewar family ties to the Mafia). The later-notorious Angleton was an extreme case, but not an atypical one. He combined a whiskey-drenched anti-Soviet mania (which would, in the 1970s and 80s, develop into genuine paranoia) with some bureaucratic agility, but no palpable expertise in Middle Eastern affairs -- all of which, of course, fitted him perfectly to direct ...
A new book just published at the American Free Press by Michael Collins Piper, "The High Priests of War: The Secret History of How Americas Neo-Conservative Trotskyites Came to Power and Orchestrated the War Against Iraq as the First Step in Their Drive for Global Empire," details the early plans for a war against the Arab world by Henry Kissinger and the neo-cons in the late 1960s and early 1970s. That just happens to coincide with getting the DU "show on the road" and the oil crisis in the Middle East, which caused concern not only to President Nixon. The British had been plotting and scheming for control of the oil in Iraq for decades since first using poison gas on the Iraqis and Kurds in 1912 ...

The convicted felon apparently behind the anti-Muslim film that has caused furor across the Arab world may be in violation of the terms of his probation. The Office of Probation in the Central District of California is reviewing the case of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who was convicted on bank fraud charges and warned against misbehaving on the Internet, said U.S. Courts spokeswoman Karen Redmond.. He was ordered not to own or use devices with access to the Web without approval from his probation officer - and any approved computers were to be used for work only. Defendant shall not access a computer for any other purpose, the terms read. TIMELINE: Innocence of Muslims unrest. There were also restrictions placed on him enlisting others to get on the Internet for him. A spokesman for the U.S. Probation and Parole Office could not be reached Thursday about whether Nakoula may have violated those terms after the film trailer was loaded onto YouTube. Nakoula had been arrested in 2009 after federal ...

It is typically argued that the rising popularity of Islamist parties in parts of the Arab world reflects votes from the poor and disenfranchised. This column challenges this perspective, arguing that Islamist parties gain political support from the middle classes, due in large part to neoliberal economic policies. Using survey and electoral data from Tunisia, it shows that belonging to the middle class and living in a rich district together affect the decision to vote for the religious party more than actually being religious. These findings suggest that the same framework used to analyse political competition in the West can be fruitfully applied to the Muslim world. ...
These are some of the views and reports relevant to our readers that caught our attention this week. Voices from Eurasia Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block Spurred by events in the Arab world and high profile examples like the Indian Ipaidabribe.com, the role of social media to fight corruption and, more broadly, improve governance has been in the spotlight recently (see e.g. the Accountability 2.0 blog). Perhaps the most comprehensive reports we have come across in this area are from the Transparency and Accountability Initiative. Their global mapping report on technology for transparency and the latest piece on the state of the art in transparency, accountability and citizen participation are particularly informative. Ditto for the online tracking tool on technologies for civic engagement. A recent post from Aleem Walji on the World Banks CommGap site,
George Clooney, the matinee idol, made an interesting point the other day. He said that "liberal" had become a dirty word and hed like to change that. Fair enough. So I hope he wont mind if I make a suggestion. The best way to reclaim "liberal" for the angels is to get on the right side of history - the side the Iraqi people are on. The word "liberal" has no meaning if those who wear the label refuse to celebrate the birth of a new democracy after 40 years of tyranny.. Yet, if you wandered the Internet on Thursday, you came across far too many "liberals" who watched the election, shrugged and went straight back to Valerie Plame, WMD, Bush lied.. Bush lied, people dyed. Their fingers. Thats what this is about: Millions of Kurds, Shia and Sunnis beaming as they emerge from polling stations and hold up their purple fingers after the freest, fairest election ever held in the Arab world. "Liberal" in the American sense is a dirty word because its come to stand for a shriveled parochial ...

As celebrations for the 33 anniversary of the Islamic Revolution are underway, Obama has proposed a new set of sanctions against Iran for the ninth or tenth time during his term. While Americans are facing serious internal economic crisis and political turmoil, not to mention the occupy wall street movement, they continue to pressure the international community to escalate pressures on Iran on terms of suspicion that Iran may be engaged in activities to enrich uranium to the weapons grade degree. This continues on the basis of a mere suspicion, at a time when in addition to India and Pakistan in this region, the zionist regime defies international regulations and scrutiny and keeps dozens of nuclear warheads in the occupied territories. The ongoing awakening of the Muslim and Arab world and the occasional threats of military action against Iran are making the region more volatile. Yesterday news of anti war, anti sanctions and anti dictator demonstrations in several cities in the United States ...
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkeys leaders kept up their criticism of Egypt on Friday, calling the violence there a shame for Islam and the Arab world, a day after the two countries recalled their ambassadors following the crackdown on supporters of Mohammed Morsi, the ousted Egyptian president
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration told lawmakers that it will not declare Egypts government overthrow a coup, officials said, allowing the United States to continue providing $1.5 billion in annual military and economic aid to the Arab worlds most populous country.
The largely peaceful revolution that ended Hosni Mubaraks regime in Egypt also has the potential to reshape the repressive cultural climate in the country and perhaps elsewhere in the Arab world,
Egyptians celebrated Sunday the election of their countrys first freely elected president - Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, who becomes the first Islamist head of state of the Arab worlds most populous nation.
A young Saudi journalist is facing calls for his execution after tweeting remarks about the Prophet Mohammed, and the kingdoms top clerics are demanding his trial after denouncing him as an "apostate." On the occasion of the Muslim prophets birthday last week, 23-year-old Hamza Kashgari tweeted: "I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you and there is a lot I dont understand about you." "I will not pray for you," he added. The controversial tweet sparked a frenzy of responses -- some 30,000, according to an online service that tracks tweets in the Arab world. In one response, Abdullah, a lawyer, said that since Kashgari was "an adult... we should accept nothing but implementing the ruling according to Islamic law" or sharia. Insulting the prophet is considered blasphemous in Islam, and is a crime punishable by death. Kashgari quickly apologised for his remarks, but the calls for his execution only multiplied. ...
Cultures in Contact: How Education and Cultural Studies Help Obliterate Unnecessary Perpetuation of Cross-cultural Misunderstanding Between the USA and the Arab World
By Robert Fisk So Americas one-time ally has been sentenced to death for war crimes he committed when he was Washingtons best friend in the Arab world.
