Contrary to Oren, Israelis Persecute Christians

A funny thing happened the other day. Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, tried to convince readers of the Wall Street Journal that the “only place in the Middle East where Christians aren’t endangered but flourishing is Israel,” while blaming Islam for the plight of Christians in the Middle East, specifically the plight of Christian Palestinians in the West Bank.

Tabloid Islamophobia in the UK

The British Media & Islam – newspapers have taken liberties with the truth far too many times…

Mocking the Prophet, Mocking his Followers?

The editor of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo spoke out immediately after the petrol-bombing of the offices of his offices on Wednesday to accuse those responsible of being ‘idiots who betray their own religion’ and ‘radical stupid people who don’t know what Islam is’.

Upon our arrival to the Gaza Strip in the summer of 1991, I began missing all the things I took for granted; which included air conditioning and my favorite show Voltron. After a few months in Gaza, and having to adjust to life there, my gazillion cousins made life a lot more fun. Their sudden presence in my life combined with their stories made the difference. My first Ramadan in Gaza began on March 5th, 1992.

Ramadan Rituals I Grew Up With
