          PEACE OF THE MURDERERS
          by Barry Chamish, israeli correspondent
          http://www.e-venthorizon.net/ggr/middleast/murderous_peace.html

          "Recently Shimon Peres met Yasir 'Mad Dog' Arafat in Gaza
          and, lo and behold, miracle of miracles, they agreed to make
          peace again. At least, that's how the world media is reporting
          the meeting. Now here is what really happened."

          DO THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE DESERVE A STATE?
          by Barry Chamish, israel correspondent; Reem Nuseibeh,
          palestine correspondent & William LaForme, egypt correspondent
          http://www.e-venthorizon.net/ggr/pt-cntrpt/pt-cntrpt.html

          The Middle East powder keg, now in its second month, has
          claimed scores of Palestinian lives, as well as some Israelis.
          With the foundation of the '91 Madrid Peace Conference that
          launched the subsequent era in Mideast peace summits now
          crumbling, the political and military sands in Israel are beginning
          to shift. As the Jewish State scrambles in vain to forge a frail
          unity government, tough questions are rising about which of
          the two rivalries is to blame for the incitement. Throughout the
          globe, enormous interest is converging upon the biblical region,
          progenitor of the three major world faiths - Judaism, Christianity
          and Islam.

          Barry Chamish, Reem Nuseibeh and Bill LaForme offer insights
          into the Israeli, Palestinian and Egyptian perspectives by
          confronting one the world's toughest dilemmas. Don't miss this
          insightful three-way debate on one of the most hotly contested
          issues of the day! Then weigh-in on where you stand.

          IS TRANSITION POSSIBLE or CAN SOCIALIST PROFESSORS OF
          ECONOMICS TEACH CAPITALISM?
          by Dr. Sam Vaknin, contributing writer
          http://www.e-venthorizon.net/ggr/philosophies/transition.html

          "Lest you hold your breath to the end of this article - the answers
          to both questions in the title are no and no. Capitalism cannot be
          "learned" or "imported" or "emulated" or "simulated". Capitalism (or,
          rather, liberalism) is not only a theoretical construct. It is not only
          a body of knowledge. It is a philosophy, an ideology, a way of life,
          a mentality and a personality. This is why professors of economics
          who studied under Socialism can never teach Capitalism in the
          truest sense of the word.""

          GREETING THE FUTURE WITH NOSTALGIA AND FEAR:  Remember US
          Before the Drug War?
          by Lee Holmes, contributing writer

      http://www.e-venthorizon.net/parallax/culture_constitution/drugwar_nostalgia
      .html

          "On a September evening in 1998, person or persons unknown
          went to a small ranch on the outskirts of Ensenada, Baja California,
          where they lined up eighteen men, women, children and infants and
          shot each one in the head and then strafed them with automatic
          weapon fire. The authorities, as well as journalists and the local
          population, all agree the murders were drug-related and as such,
          the most heinous in the history of Baja California."

          CRIME AND THE DRUG WAR:  The Politics of Hysteria
          by Paul Hager, contributing writer

      http://www.e-venthorizon.net/parallax/culture_constitution/drugwar_hysteria.
      html

          "On the national political scene, the issue of crime is a perennial
          favorite among the Republican and Democratic politicians. They
          can be counted on to make extravagant promises to "solve" the
          "crime problem" by "swift," "forceful," (choose appropriate dynamic
          metaphor) legislative action."
