Issue: 2003, Volume 36, Issue 1
Subject: Judaism|United Nations
Author: Bennis, Phyllis
Issue Description: Thirty-four times over the past 30 years the United States has vetoed United Nations Security Council resolutions critical of Israel. Efforts by the vast majority of the world’s nations to halt Israel’s occupation of Arab lands, expropriation of Palestinian property, and violation of the human rights of a civilian population under military rule have been repeatedly thwarted by Washington’s intervention.  While U.S. dollars fuel Israel’s colonization, U.S. vetoes shield Israel from international censure.
The history behind these vetoes is the topic of this issue. Our author, Phyllis Bennis, has been a Middle East affairs analyst for over 20 years.

In the Beginning, There Was Terrorism

Issue: 2003, Volume 36, Issue 3
Subject: History|Terrorism
Author: Bleier, Ronald
Issue Description: “Blowing up a bus, a train, a ship, a cafĂ©, or a hotel; assassinating a diplomat or a peace negotiator; killing hostages, sending letter bombs; massacring defenseless villagers — this is terrorism, as we know it. In the modern Middle East it began with the Zionists who founded the Jewish state. “Author Ronald Bleier’s meticulous documentation includes Livia Rokach’s “Israel’s Sacred Terrorism,” which is based in large part on former Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharett’s diary.

Why Do They Hate Us?

Issue: 2003, Volume 36, Issue 4
Subject: Public Opinion
Author: Zogby, John
Issue Description: Practically all polls show that Americans are less esteemed by the world community today than ever before. Is it because, as many U.S. commentators suggest, non-Americans envy our power, or our way of life, or our technology? Or perhaps they revile our culture as they see it filtered through our movies and television? John Zogby, president of the international polling firm of Zogby International, looks at all these possibilities and concludes that none of them is right. So what is the answer?
While Zogby's polling results may surprise many Americans, they will not come as a surprise to the rest of the world, and certainly not to the people of the Middle East.

Author: Corrie, Cindy
Issue Description: Rachel Corrie went to the Occupied Territories believing in (1) the right to freedom of the Palestinian people based on the relevant United Nations resolutions and international law; and (2) exclusive reliance on non-violent methods of resistance. On March 16, 2003, Rachel was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while trying to prevent the demolition of the home of a Palestinian pharmacist, his wife and three young children near the Egyptian border.

A Style Sheet on the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

Issue: 2002, Volume 35, Issue 2
Subject: Media
Author: Bailey, J. Martin
Issue Description: J. Martin Bailey has compiled and defined 117 terms whose use, misuse and non-use by the media contribute mightily to what newspaper readers, radio listeners and TV watchers perceive as “the truth”about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the religious, cultural and ethnic ingredients of that conflict. The AMEU web site has made the lexicon into a permanent feature (see Resources) so that it can be expanded and amended as needed.

The Crusades, Then and Now

Issue: 2002, Volume 35, Issue 3
Subject: Christianity|Crusades|History|Holy Land|Islam/Muslims|Zionism
Author: Ashmore, Robert
Issue Description: Crusading is a concept that applies to successive campaigns against the East and even against foes in the West during medieval times, as well as to actions of the imperial powers in the 19th and 20th centuries. A clear understanding of crusading reveals that it characterizes much that is occurring today, from U.S.-headed economic sanctions on Iraq to Israel’s expansionist settlement policy in Arab territory to Russia’s devastating campaign in Chechnya.

A Most UnGenerous Offer

Issue: 2002, Volume 35, Issue 4
Subject: Human Rights|Land and Homes|Oslo|Peace Process
Author: Halper, Jeff
Issue Description: If you look at the blueprint of a prison, it looks like the prisoners own the place. They have 95 percent of the territory. The prisoners have the living areas. They have the cafeteria, the visiting area, the exercise yard. All the prison authorities have is 5 percent: the surrounding walls, the cell bars, a few points of control, the keys to the door. When you consider Israeli Prime Minister’s “generous offer”to the Palestinians at Camp David, keep that prison blueprint in mind.

The Making of Iraq

Issue: 2002, Volume 35, Issue 5
Subject: History|Iraq|Politics
Author: Simons, Geoff
Issue Description: Geoff Simons has written four books on Iraq, his most recent being “Targeting Iraq: Sanctions and Bombing in US Policy,”published this year. Denis Halliday, former U.N. Assistant Secretary-General and head of the U.N. Humanitarian Program in Iraq, says of this work, “There is no doubt this is an important book.”And The Times of London added: “Books either written or edited by Simons can be bought with confidence.”If ever Americans had a need to know the history of Iraq— “from Sumer to Saddam,”as the title of one of Geoff’s books puts it— that time is at hand. Two of Simons’books on Iraq, along with other new entries, are available from our web site catalog.
