The Brotherhood

Issue: 2013, Volume 46, Issue 2
Subject: Terrorism
Author: Kimball, Charles
Issue Description: For many Americans, the Muslim Brotherhood has become a catch phrase, a convenient category for encapsulating a wide range of images and fears swirling ominously in the post-9/11 world.  On many occasions during Q and A following a public lecture, in media interviews, or in private conversations

with interested non-specialists during the past decade, a surprising array of people have confidently summarized their perspective with a declarative sentence or rhetorical question:  “The Muslim Brotherhood is the problem.” “It is really all about the Muslim Brotherhood, isn’t it?”

Dimona---(Shhh! It's A Secret.)

Issue: 2013, Volume 46, Issue 3
Subject: Human Rights
Author: Mahoney, John F.
Issue Description: Its name comes from the biblical town, mentioned in Joshua 15:21-22, that was one of the Caananite cities said to be totally annihilated by the Israelites.

What Israel's Best Friend Should Know

Issue: 2013, Volume 46, Issue 4
Subject: Civil Rights|Dialogue|Holy Land|Human Rights
Author: Peled, Miko
Issue Description: The photographs on pages 3,  5, 6, and 7 (PDF version) come courtesy of our author, Miko Peled; they are pictures of four individuals who caused him to think twice about what he had been taught as a boy about his country. His hope is that they will cause his country’s best friends, us Americans, to think twice as well.

Miko’s article is based on his book “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine,” published in 2012 by Just World Books.  Permission to reproduce excerpts contained in the article must be obtained from the publisher (rights@justworld books.com).
 
The Pulitzer Prize winning author, Alice Walker, has granted AMEU permission to reprint her poem (page 2 of PDF), as well as excerpts from her Foreword to Miko’s book; see pg. 14 (PDF). Copies of Miko’s book are available from the publisher (www.justworldbooks.com) and from AMEU; see pg. 15 (PDF).

Also on pg. 15, our video selections include the Oscar-nominated documentary “Five Broken Cameras,” recommended by Miko Peled in his article.  It is a snapshot of Israel’s ongoing colonization.

Farewell, Figleaf

Issue: 2013, Volume 46, Issue 5
Subject:
Author: Olson, Pamela
Issue Description: The New York Times of November 1, 2013 reported that the Palestinian negotiators engaged in peace talks with Israel offered their resignations.  A senior American official, however, insisted that the negotiators would remain committed to the nine-month negotiations.  Pamela Olson, in her December 2013 Link feature article, unmasks this disconnect we call the "peace process."

Mirror, Mirror

Issue: 2012, Volume 45, Issue 1
Subject: Human Rights
Author: Maysoon, Zayid
Issue Description: As a rule, the Link editors exercise their editorial prerogative to create the title for our feature articles.  In this case, however, we kept the title the author gave us: “Mirror, Mirror.”  We assumed she was making reference to Snow White and the question put to the Mirror-on-the Wall: “Who is the fairest of them all?”  What that has to do with Maysoon Zayid, however, isn’t all that clear.   Each reader, we suspect, will come away with his or her own take on the title.  Just don’t expect Maysoon to tip her hand.   She’s too much of the artist for that--or perhaps we should say too much of the comedian.

Is The Two-State Solution Dead?

Issue: 2012, Volume 45, Issue 2
Subject: Peace Process|Politics
Author: Halper, Jeff
Issue Description: When Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu formed a new unity government in May, 2012, with Israel’s largest opposition party, political pundits here and in Israel hailed it as an opportunity--perhaps the last one--to create a two-state solution to the Palestine-Israel impasse.  Not going to happen, says Jeff Halper.  Moreover, just hoping that it might happen is counter-productive.  Jeff Halper is an Israeli, an archaeologist, the co-founder of the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, a 2006 nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the 2009 recipient of the prestigious Kant Foundation World Citizen Award.  And, as it turns out, he is far from alone in thinking the two-state solution is dead.

The Neocons ... They're Back

Issue: 2012, Volume 45, Issue 3
Subject: Neocons|War/Conflict
Author: Mahoney, John F.
Issue Description: On his March 24, 2012 PBS program “Moyers & Company,” veteran journalist Bill Moyers reminded his viewers that, nine years after the start of the Iraq War, the drumbeats were again sounding for another war in the Middle East, this time against Iran. And he added: “Many of the bloodthirsty cries come from the same lusty throats that agitated a decade ago for invading Iraq. Now the neocon armchair warriors call for hitting Iran before it builds a nuclear bomb to drop on Israel--a scenario that remains in doubt.” So who are these neocons? And what are they up to? That is the subject of this Link.

Welcome to Nazareth

Subject: Holy Land|Israeli Palestinians
Author: Cook, Jonathan
Issue Description: In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI visited Nazareth. Palestinian Christians living there were excited. Their revered leader would come and, through his eyes, the world would see their plight. But after waiting for hours along Nazareth's main street, the police urged the crowds to go home; the Pope had been advised that it was not safe for him to meet the residents. In this issue, journalist Jonathan Cook tells us what the Pontiff would have learned, had he met the area descendants of the boy Jesus.
