Amity in the Middle East: How the World Sports Peace Project And the Passion for Football Brought Together Arab And Jewish Youngsters

Product Description
The World Sports Project brought together Israeli and Arab youngsters and adults from towns in Israel, staff and students from four English universities, Premier League clubs, most notably Arsenal, the British Embassy and the British Council in Israel, the Israel Sports Authority, and runners in the Flora London Marathon. It became a pointer to more creative ways for community relations in divided societies. Who is this book intended for? For those wanting to read about Arab and Jewish youngsters playing football together; for those interested in conflict prevention and peace-making; and for those wanting to run such a project in other political climes. Over three years, a successful Football/Conflict Prevention Project took place on an annual basis, close to Nazareth. Those who took part will be able to tell their children and grandchildren of the time when Jews and Arab-Christians and Arab-Moslems played in mixed teams against mixed teams. Their team could only win when they learned to work together, when trust and confidence in each other overrode political antagonisms. With such a model, the future of peoples in other strife-torn communities could move forward to hope, and not backward to despair.

The Day of Islam: The Annihilation of America and the Western World

Product Description
In two previous books, Osama’s Revenge and The Al Qaeda Connection, seasoned investigative reporter Paul Williams revealed the alarming potential for nuclear terrorism on U.S. soil and the sinister connections among organized crime, illegal immigrants, and al Qaeda. Now, Williams broadens his focus beyond al Qaeda to provide readers with newly uncovered information on terrorist activities in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, other Muslim countries–and our neighbor Canada! What emerges is a harrowing picture of international terrorist activities, all aimed at the destruction of the United States and the collapse of the Western world. This cataclysm will usher in “the Day of Islam,” the dream of radical Muslims to see all of humankind fall in submission before the throne of Allah. Based on the “forgotten testimony” of the FBI’s “Confidential Source One,” as well as other sources, Williams first presents evidence of Osama Bin Laden’s purchase of highly enriched uranium in Sudan and nuclear devices from the Chechens and the Russian Mafia. He then offers further information on the workings of Pakistani scientists and technicians from the A. Q. Khan Research Facility to maintain and upgrade al Qaeda’s “bespoke nukes” (with explosive yields in excess of ten kilotons) for the “American Hiroshima.” This information comes with empirical proof that should dispel any doubts that these weapons not only have been developed but have also been forward-deployed from the seaport at Karachi to strategic locations within the Western world. Keeping the focus on Pakistan, he predicts a nightmarish scenario if President Pervez Musharref should be overthrown and his arsenal of sixty-eight nuclear weapons falls into the hands of radical mullahs. Williams also examines the role of the Iranians both in sponsoring terrorism and in planning the American Hiroshima. In addition, he uncovers many unreported and startling accounts of the terrorist activities of Hezbollah in America and presents evidence that the marriage between Hezbollah and al Qaeda has been consummated. Finally, he presents intelligence showing that grave threats to America come, not from just our southern border, but from Canada and its amazingly open policies regarding radical Islam. The greatest threat of all, he concludes, comes from within –not only from the radical mosques within every major American city but also the Islamic paramilitary compounds in rural areas throughout the country, including Islamberg in New York State, where new recruits are trained for the great jihad against the United States under the very nose of FBI and Homeland Security officials.

Sure to be controversial, this shocking exposé sends a wake-up to Americans lulled into a false sense of security in the post-9/11 era.

Getting to Pluralism: Political Actors in the Arab World

  • ISBN13: 9780870032448
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
Pluralism in the Arab world has not yet matured into functional democratic politics. While ruling establishments, Islamist movements, and secular parties have introduced a much greater degree of pluralism into Arab societies, the imbalance of power and interdependence among these actors limits both the degree of political diversity and its effectiveness at bringing about reforms. The Arab world is likely to grapple with political apathy, low voter turnout, dwindling membership in registered parties, and shrinking constituencies for the foreseeable future. Even the Islamists, who demonstrated great ability to organize and gain followers in the past, have begun showing signs of decreasing popularity. “Getting to Pluralism: Political Actors in the Arab World” explores the balance of power between the disparate political forces of the Arab world. The essays in this volume examine the characteristics of the major political actors in great detail and assess the weaknesses of the secular parties. They also illustrate the complexities of Islamist participation in the political processes of several Arab countries-pointing out both similarities and differences. Finally, the authors evaluate how incumbent Arab regimes have been able to maintain their grip on power in spite of their claims that they support political and social reform.

Arabesque: Graphic Design from the Arab World and Persia

  • ISBN13: 9783899552683
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
Despite their rich tradition of calligraphy, the Arab World and Persia are not known
for their contemporary graphic design, illustration and typography. Especially
now, it s worth taking a look at the region s creativity. Young designers are just
beginning to chart their own compelling course between local visual convention
and a modern, international style.
Arabesque investigates the creative potential of the Arab World and Iran. This
book features examples of recent innovative and groundbreaking design work
that is inspired by the richness of the region s visual culture.
Given the important role of calligraphy in the Middle East, Arabesque focuses
on typography. The book presents a wide range of Arabic fonts and typefaces
inspired by traditional calligraphy; these are accompanied by a rich selection of
applications. Further examples of design and graffiti serve as powerful demonstrations
of how text can be used illustratively. This work is particularly relevant
to those now creating street art and poster design.
Arabesque also features graphic design, logos and illustration by young designers
and activists from Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, which
is complemented by selected projects by Western designers, who are strongly
influenced by Arab culture. Regardless of the location and ancestry of their
creators, all of the examples included in Arabesque combine modern design with
the traditional, letter-based canon of Arab forms in striking ways.
Supplemental texts describe the environments in which the featured designers
and artists work. Arabesque also includes a CD-ROM that features a typeface
created by the book s editors, Ben Wittner and Sascha Thoma.

Constructing International Relations in the Arab World

Product Description

This book explores the emergence of an anarchic states-system in the twentieth-century Arab world. Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Arab nationalist movements first considered establishing a unified regional arrangement to take the empire’s place and present a common front to outside powers. But over time different Arab leaderships abandoned this project and instead adopted policies characteristic of self-interested, territorially limited states.

In his explanation of this phenomenon, the author shifts attention away from older debates about the origins and development of Arab nationalism and analyzes instead how different nationalist leaderships changed the ways that they carried on diplomatic and strategic relations. He situates this shift in the context of influential sociological theories of state formation, while showing how labor movements and other forms of popular mobilization shaped the origins of the regional states-system.

Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World

  • ISBN13: 9780300145793
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description

Jeffrey Herf, a leading scholar in the field, offers the most extensive examination to date of Nazi propaganda activities targeting Arabs and Muslims in the Middle East during World War II and the Holocaust. He draws extensively on previously unused and little-known archival resources, including the shocking transcriptions of the “Axis Broadcasts in Arabic” radio programs, which convey a strongly anti-Semitic message.

 

Herf explores the intellectual, political, and cultural context in which German and European radical anti-Semitism was found to resonate with similar views rooted in a selective appropriation of the traditions of Islam. Pro-Nazi Arab exiles in wartime Berlin, including Haj el-Husseini and Rashid el-Kilani, collaborated with the Nazis in constructing their Middle East propaganda campaign. By integrating the political and military history of the war in the Middle East with the intellectual and cultural dimensions of the propagandistic diffusion of Nazi ideology, Herf offers the most thorough examination to date of this important chapter in the history of World War II. Importantly, he also shows how the anti-Semitism promoted by the Nazi propaganda effort contributed to the anti-Semitism exhibited by adherents of radical forms of Islam in the Middle East today.

Santa Claus in Baghdad and Other Stories about Teens in the Arab World

Product Description
What is it like to be a young person in the Arab world today? This lively collection of eight short stories about Arab teenagers living in Iraq, Tunisia, Egypt, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and a Palestinian refugee camp engagingly depicts young people’s experiences growing up in the Middle East. The characters, drawn from urban and rural settings and from different classes as well as a mix of countries, confront situations involving friends, family, teachers, and society at large. Along with some specifically Middle Eastern issues, such as strife in Iraq, the hardships of life in a Palestinian refugee camp, and honor crimes, the young people deal with more familiar concerns such as loyalty to friends, overcoming personal insecurities, dreams of a future career, and coping with divorcing parents. Coming of age in a complicated world, they meet life with courage, determination, and, not least of all, humor. With accompanying notes that provide contextual information, Santa Claus in Baghdad brings a fresh perspective to youth literature about the Arab world.
