      Diplomacy and the desert

      Israeli policy they will find only desolation
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/fr1.htm

      Oslo R.I.P
      Repeated Israeli incursions into the West Bank and Gaza confirm that the
      1993 Oslo deal is dead and buried
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/re1.htm

      Absent from the ball
      A near appearance on opening night is Egypt's only claim to fame in this
      World Cup.
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/fr2.htm

      EGYPT
      Consultations for peace
      President Hosni Mubarak is heading to the US for talks with the Bush
      Administration on new tactics to restore stability to the region
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/eg5.htm

      Governing the non-governmental
      The Shura Council approved a draft for the NGO law, but the controversy
      continues.
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/eg1.htm

      REGION
      'Where is Jamal's body?'
      After committing horrific war crimes at Jenin refugee camp, Israel is
      now obstructing help from reaching its residents.
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/re4.htm

      The tip of the iceberg?
      A Palestinian deportee tells Al-Ahram Weekly, in Nicosia, that his
      expulsion from his homeland is an indication of Sharon's ethnic
      cleansing plans
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/re6.htm

      INTERVIEW
      'I come from here'
      Hanan Ashrawi spoke to Al-Ahram Weekly of the Palestinian people today:
      besieged, yet self-critical, and ready for change
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/intrvw.htm

      ECONOMY
      Eek!-commerce
      Around the world, e-commerce is gathering pace. But Egyptian business,
      and the country's legal system, seem nervous
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/ec2.htm

      OPINION
      Matters of principle
      Restoring calm in the Middle East is possible but requires that the US
      take a critical look at how it deals with countries in the region,
      writes Gamil Mattar
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/op8.htm

      God and the cause
      Following 11 September Islamist groups have tended to be lumped into a
      single amorphous mass. But differences abound, writes Diaa Rashwan
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/op2.htm

      INTERNATIONAL
      From 9/11 to A20
      Did the US's Muslim and Arab communities need Israel's invasion of the
      West Bank to restore the voice they lost in the aftermath of 11
      September? Al-Ahram Weekly seeks answers from CAIR's executive director
      Nihad Awad
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/in2.htm

      See none, hear none, speak none
      A debate is brewing in the US about the revelations that the
      administration was warned prior to 11 September of an impending
      terrorist attack. In Washington, Mohamed El-Sayed Said assesses the
      debate and engages two security experts on its implications
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/inter.htm

      CULTURE
      Once upon a book
      Dar Al-Shorouq's newly-launched Sunflower Books will produce children's
      books in English. Its publishing manager, Amira Aboulmagd, spoke to
      Al-Ahram Weekly about the project
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/cu1.htm

      FEATURES
      Al-Ahram Weekly examines what African Liberation Day means to Africans
      today, charts the development of the Egyptian Broadcasting Corporation's
      African Services and asks whether they can function as effectively in
      the digital age as in their heyday during the African national
      liberation era?
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/fe1.htm

      HERITAGE
      The pyramid count climbs
      For centuries Egypt's great symbols of the sun-god have inspired
      speculation, and the totally unexpected discovery of the 110th pyramid
      adds to the mystery
      http://www.ahram.org.eg/weekly/2002/588/sc1.htm
