I have always had an interest in traveling to South Africa and Egypt. I was deeply interested in learning about the impact of the apartheid atrocity a...
He punches hard, he's opinionated, his commentary is biting, his cartoons are thought provoking, and he doesn't regret being a magnet for nasty criticism. He is Brazilian cartoonist Carlos Latuff who doesn't mince words or hold back on stirring up people, in his country and across continents.
Israel's extended olive branch to the UAE occurs within a complicated geopolitical context, in which some traditional alliances are strained, several states are exploring new partnerships and various actors are seizing upon newly generated opportunities in the region.
I'm seldom impressed with celebrities, but I have to say that somehow their stars shine brighter in Dubai.
The new governor of Alexandria in Egypt, on his first day in office, ordered that the streets be culled of stray dogs. Ruthlessly, these innocent animals were gunned down one by one in a horrible massacre.

The picture painted appeared very bleak, as a stream of reports, editorials and op-eds by opposition figures warned of a "return to autocracy and despotism" and declared the outcome as a threat to the "survival of democracy" in the country.
What a great dozen-day stretch Hillary Clinton has just had. First a very impressive performance in the first Democratic presidential debate. Followed...
Egypt looks nothing like the promised heaven of stability and cohesiveness. Scores of Egyptians have been murdered by an ever more rampant police, sentenced to death in kangaroo courts, or jailed in the most inhumane conditions where torture is routine.
