"Come what may, Arafat sees himself as the gatekeeper"
Comment by Robert Malley and Hussein Agha in The Daily Star

28 July 2003

Come what may, Arafat sees himself as the gatekeeper - Veteran Palestinian leader has seen it all, and physical isolation has in no way diminished his power.

"Three men in a boat - Sharon, Arafat and Abbas"
Comment by Robert Malley and Hussein Agha in The Daily Star

26 July 2003

Some lament that Israel's leader has not changed. Others protest that he has changed too much. How odd, pointless, and tiresome this debate must sound to him.

"Why Bush must send troops to help save Liberia"
Comment by Gareth Evans in the Financial Times

18 July 2003

While Washington continues to dither, Charles Taylor, Liberia's president and an indicted war criminal, remains in power, angling for ways to protect himself and those around him responsible for destroying his country and destabilising the entire west Africa region. It is time for President George W. Bush to abandon his opposition to peace operations in Africa.

"Das Milit�r als Nutznie�er"
Comment by Sidney Jones in Frankfurter Rundschau

15 July 2003

Separatismus kommt den Streitkr�ften politisch gelegen

Indonesiens Reformprozess, der Wandel vom autorit�r gef�hrten Staat zu einer Demokratie, steht still. Der beunruhigendste Aspekt ist der wieder rapide steigende politische Einfluss der Armee, der voranschreitet, ohne dass es Fortschritte in den Bereichen Rechenschaft, Haushaltstransparenz und zivile Kontrolle g�be. Besonders offensichtlich ist das in der Milit�raktion gegen die "Bewegung Freies Aceh" (GAM).
