elephants do have bigger brains than humans and they can paint images. They are also very expressive of their emotions–apparently joy is one of them.

thank you worldfous.
“The Palestinians really are suffering under Israeli occupation. Arab dictators are in fact being propped up by U.S. polices. The Muslim world truly does have reason to feel under attack by a “crusading” West.” (Aslan, 11)
“What ultimately led to the deradicalization of the Liberation Theology movement—or, for that matter, the environmental movement, the antiglobalization, the feminist movement, the black power movement, and so on—was the gradual co-option of their members’ grievances into mainstream society. Indeed, when it comes to dealing with a social movement [global Jihadism], society has only two options: either it can address the members’ grievances, thereby making the movement irrelevant, or it can deflect those grievances and further radicalize the movement.” (Aslan, 139)

“Whatever you think you know about Afghanistan is in direct inverse proportion to how often you have been there. The more you go there, the more you know how much you don’t know”

Dorn L Says:
Salameh Nematt was off center on two counts:
Firstly, Pres. Mubarak has taken a much harder line towards Israel since Pres. Obama’s Cairo speech. He refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, or contemplate any real moves towards normalization.
Secondly, the chief difference between Hamas and Fatah is over strategy, rather than end goal. They both refuse to accept Israel as a permanent state. And of course, they are factions competing for power. At the recent Fatah conference, Mahmoud Abbas
(i) said he will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state;
(ii) set up a commission with the ridiculous task of “investigating how Israel murdered Yasser Arafat”(!);
(iii) demanded that refugees be resettled in pre-1967 Israel, not the West Bank. This denies the rights of the similar number of JEWISH REFUGEES FROM ARAB LANDS. It sidesteps Arab responsibility for starting the wars that led to both refugee issues.
By contrast, even “hardliners” in the Israeli cabinet are sheer doves.
