WORTH READING



1. "This land is your land, This land is my land" By J. Peter Pham & Michael I. Krauss. - Some worthwhile history of the Holy Land.

2. A Tunisian woman Fighting to Speak by Neila Charchour Hachicha.

3. UAE reformist: "Muslims Living Abroad Cannot... Impose Their Values – Just as We Do Not Permit Christians Living Among Us to Impose Theirs."

4. Sudanese Scholar & Islamist Leader Hassan Al-Turabi on Al-Arabiya TV: Women Should Cover Chest, Not Face; Women Can Be Imams & Political Leaders; No Punishment Sanctioned for Drinking Alcohol at Home

5. Iraq's parliament meets. God speed.

6. Do economic boycotts work? by Bhaskar Dasgupta. He study includes the boycott against Israel:

Did it hurt Israel? Yes.

Could they manage it? Oh! Yes!

.And by the way, the GDP per capita for Israel is $22,200, compared to Egypt's $4,400; Saudi Arabia's $12,900; Jordan $4,800.

And Denmark because of the Danish cartoons:

Denmark's Danske Bank estimated that Danish goods worth $1.6 billion annually are threatened in 20 Muslim countries (to compare, Denmark's GDP in 2005 was estimated to be $254.1 billion).

On the other hand, there was an increase in sales in other countries, where consumers actually purchased Danish goods to show solidarity. So overall, there seems to be an actual increase in sales.

In other words, our BUY DANISH campain worked.

And it doesnt matter if the "buy Danish" campains worked or not:

The real deep question is whether how far the worlds religious communities will give away their power in aknowledgement of the danish model:

Religon is part of tradition, but by far part of politics.
