The Case for Palestine

RAMALLAH – Nowhere are the grievances that perpetuate violence and war more evident than they are in Palestine today. But the world’s politicians continue to dance around the problem, rather than confront it.

Ref.:“Corruption & Nepotism in Liberia”

Dear Fellow Compatriots:

In recent weeks, the pages of newspapers and the airwaves of radio and television stations have been saturated with talk about corruption and nepotism in Liberia. In beer parlors and night clubs, on buses and in taxis, the talk often turns to a discussion of corruption. Sadly, the public seems unable to challenge the purveyors of the corruption and nepotism gossips, not just to explain these terms, but to insist on the show of real proof or evidence beyond hearsay. In fact, as is so often the case, gossips and innuendos in Liberia take on a life of their own with each new gossiper embellishing the story a little to suit his purpose and self-importance.

Should Europe Emulate the US?

BRUSSELS – Paul Krugman, the Princeton University economist and blogger, recently summarized diverging transatlantic trends as follows: “Better here, worse there.” It is a shocking observation: as recently as in 2009, European politicians and commentators lambasted the US for being at the root of the financial turmoil and hailed the euro for protecting the continent from it.

PARIS – The newspaper commentaries that I write often have a dark perspective. Sadly, this one will be no different. But there are two pieces of good news that break through the gloom.
