A Manifesto For Change In Egypt
By Mohamed ElBaradei

In Egypt, as in Tunisia, there are other forces than just the president and the people. The army has been quite neutral so far, and I would expect it to remain that way. The soldiers and officers are part of the Egyptian people. They know the frustrations. They want to protect the nation.. This week the Egyptian people broke the barrier of fear, and once that is broken, there is no stopping them

Future Is In The Balance

By William A. Cook

While the people of the mid-east rise in protest against their respective American supported dictators in Tunisia and Egypt, with the American-Israeli attempts to control Lebanon on the brink of chaos and collapse, and the "peace negotiations" between the Palestinians and the Israelis torpedoed by both Netanyahu and Abbas, the confusion at the State Department could be eased if it spent some time reviewing the United States' prior efforts to control the people of the mid-east, especially in Iran

Oil And Food Prices
By Jason Bradford

Agriculture was created as the primary way civilizations harness the energy that allows them to do work. Now, however, agriculture is simply another fossil fuel conversion system. While these fuels provide us with tremendous labor efficiency, we can no longer say we have an energy efficient way to make food since food production is now an energy sink

Four Reasons Why "Progress" Isn't Always Progress
By Margaret Emerson

Progress should mean working within the Earth's limits to ensure that people aren't just well-off financially, but happy and healthy. It means closing the gap between the very rich and the desperately poor, because progress can't just mean the improvement of the lives of 5% of the population. Progress means peace, and cooperation, and more beauty in the world

Deoband Power Struggle Could Change
The Face Of Muslim Society In India
By Yoginder Sikand

Whether Vastanvi stays or is forced out remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: as the calumny he has had to face from fellow maulvis, sections of the Urdu press and scores of Muslim 'leaders' so tragically illustrates, the onerous task of promoting long overdue and desperately needed reforms in Indian Muslim society, particularly in the maulvi community, is by no means an easy one
