The Four Fundamentalisms and the Threat to Sustainable Democracy (Part 1/2)

The most important words anyone said to me in the weeks immediately after September 11, 2001, came from my friend James Koplin.

While acknowledging the significance of that day, he said, simply: “I was in a profound state of grief about the world before 9/11, and nothing that happened on that day has significantly changed what the world looks like to me.”

Because Jim is a bit older and considerably smarter than I, it took me some time to catch up to him, but eventually I recognized his insight.

For more than three thousand years, honey has been used to treat a variety of ailments through topical and oral application.

Assyrian relics, for examples, show that honey was used as a medicine, and similar medical usage was reported in ancient Egyptian annals, which stated that honey aids the healing process of wounds and in treating abdominal and urinal ailments, in addition to its use for ophthalmologic application.

The importance of national dialogue, in the absence of which we lapse into a conflict that depletes all energy, cannot be overemphasised; hence calls for change, for reform of the constitution, for new parties to be established, for emergency laws to be annulled so all political trends can participate in the democratic process without fear and without attempting either to retain power for life.

I also wish to express admiration for Minister of Culture Farouk Hosni [Faaroo’q Hunsny].

I am aware of the efforts expended by his ministry to restore Ancient Egyptian, Coptic and Islaamic monuments, and to safeguard antiquities from theft.

Religion has always been taken as a ground to initiate wars throughout the history of humanity, so why Allaah Almighty (God) created us in different races?

Fadel Soliman [Faa’dil Sulaymaan], the former Imaam of the American University at Washington DC, the former host of “the Islaamic Show” in Channel 30 at the American TV, and the former host of “let the ’Qur a~n speak” at the American radio, explains this diversity from the Holy ’Qura~n which states:
“Oh, mankind! We created you from male and female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know each other.”

Fasting: Could you please explain?

Q. I noticed that a girl in my school isn’t eating or drinking at recess, and when I asked her if she was alright she said that it is Rama’daan and she is fasting. Could you please explain?
