Who's falsifying?
12 Dec 2001 | The Globe and Mail A.18. | Ismail Zayid.
It is Ed Morgan (letter -- Dec. 11) and not Rick Sautin who is indulging in falsified history. The homeland of Moshe Dayan and Yitzhak Rabin was not, in June of 1967, "under attack by its surrounding countries." It was Israel that planned and initiated that war against Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israel's own leaders at the time testify to that, confirming that Gamal Abdel Nasser had no intention of attacking Israel.

A Canadian model for the Gulf - The Globe and Mail
Aug. 31, 2009 | Globe & Mail | Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi.
Canada's most important export to the Middle East is hope in the form of
substantial number of Canadians of Arab heritage who have chosen to
return to the region. Canada's secular and modern education system,
coupled with tolerance and respect for people of diverse cultures,
continues to produce moderate Arabs, Muslim and Christian alike, who
despite their relatively small numbers are leaving a lasting positive
impression on the Arab world.

The Six-Day War that will never end
Feb. 10, 2009, G&M op-ed by Tom Segev points out that the
conflict is not merely about land and water and mutual recognition. It
is about national identity. Both the Israelis and the Palestinians
define themselves by the Holy Land – all of it. Any territorial
compromise would force both sides to give up part of their identity.
