Just how did Iraqi Jews become refugees in 1950?Ramat Gan Committee of Baghdadi Jews - We most sincerely thank the Israeli government for confirming our status as refugees following a rapid, 62-year-long evaluation of our documents.

A different view on the Palestinian legislative electionsHaidar Eid - AlAhram Weekly "The democratic alternative is the one that reflects the collective will of the Palestinian people. This alternative lies in elections to the Palestinian National Council (PNC) after reconstructing the PLO on the basis of true democracy to ensure the genuine representation of all national and Islamist factions. PNC elections would ensure the representation of the Diaspora away from the mentality of a false independence cultivated under an oppressive occupier. These elections could bring the Palestinian people closer to self-determination, as defined by international law, while restoring their legitimate right to multiple forms of resistance." ca 14/9/2012
