Language between God and the Poets: Ma‘na in the Eleventh Century (Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship Book 2)

by Alexander Key

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the Arabic eleventh-century, scholars were intensely preoccupied with the way that language generated truth and beauty. Their work in poetics, logic, theology, and lexicography defined the intellectual space between God and the poets. In Language Between God and the Poets, Alexander Key argues that ar-Raghib al-Isfahani, Ibn Furak, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani shared a conceptual vocabulary based on the words ma‘na and haqiqah. They used this vocabulary to build theories of language, mind, and reality that answered perennial questions: how to structure language and reference, how to describe G...

I Am Cyrus: Harry S. Truman and the Rebirth of Israel

by Craig von Buseck

Improbable, if not impossible. How could a people who’d been scattered for two millennia reestablish a homeland on their ancient soil?Against all odds, an irresistible desire to return grew in courageous Jewish men and women who set out to rebuild their decimated homeland.Help came first through Great Britain’s pledge to restore Palestine to the Jews. Britain, however, nearly reneged on that promise just as the Jews faced the Nazi Holocaust.Near the end of WWII, an unlikely man rose to the presidency of the United States. Harry S. Truman, a farmer and failed business owner, would decide not only the fate of Jewish survivors but also the future of their homeland.As a vote approached in the fledgling United Nations, pressure mounted. Truman slammed the White House doors shut to all who w...

The Lost City of Ubar: The History and Legends of the Ancient Arabian City Known as the Atlantis of the Sands

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes excerpts of medieval accounts*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe story of Atlantis has captured the minds and hearts of historians, scientists, artists, and writers for millennia, and yet, it never ceases to amaze people when told that the only literary evidence that exists comes from a single 4th century BCEE author. The Athenian philosopher Plato, famous for his dialogues in which the Socratic Method was invented, was the first writer to mention the mysterious continent of Atlantis. In his works Timaeus and Critias, Plato outlines the beginning of the story of Atlantis, but the Critias, where the longer and more detailed account takes place, was never finished and, therefore, has become the mysterious germ for millennia...

Judea And Samaria: It’s Time To Annex

by Dov Ivry

The book begins this way.

This is my 51st book, all but six non-fiction. I started churning them out less than four years ago when I realized that thanks to Internet you can self-publish. I’m in my 70s and I was looking for something to do. Normally I don’t start writing until I do the research and understand the subject. I plunged forward here and about 35 pages in I discovered there is a hidden dimension that I was only vaguely aware of and did not give much weight. The result is that this book has an unusual structure. I’ve left the first part as I wrote it because it stands as it is and it is what any reasonable person might say. Then I’m going off the deep end into the hidden dimension and things will appear quite differently.

I haven’t the slightes...

Iran: Make Love not War: Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll on the Silk Road

by Mary Jane Walker

“THE first thing I saw at the border was a man’s butt as he stuffed smuggled cigarettes down his trousers. I met prostitutes whose profession was sanctioned as temporary marriage by clerics. I was offered alcohol and all the drugs under the sun in the north, and saw illegal pubs with people drinking. And I saw the most fabulous crown jewels and palaces anywhere.“All this I experienced travelling overland and learning tips to pass on to you. I saw Tehran, the Shah’s Golestan Palace, Persepolis, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Yazd. Many women took their hijabs off whenever they could, and people played music under the bridges of Isfahan. I discovered the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism and visited its funeral towers where the dead were laid out to be eaten by vultures. These were near the S...

Flight From Syria: Refugee Stories

by Hugh Eakin

Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories features the writing and photography of nine Pulitzer Center grantees– journalists who reported on Syrian refugees between 2012 and 2015.

Each of the journalists– Hugh Eakin, Lauren Gelfond Feldinger, Stephen Franklin, Joanna Kakissis, Alia Malek, Holly Pickett, Alisa Roth, Alice Su, and Selin Thomas– lends a unique perspective. Originally published in Al Jazeera, BBC News, Guernica, In These Times, Marketplace, NPR, The Atlantic and The New York Review of Books, these stories tell of an abandoned homeland, an indifferent world, and an uncertain future.

Zionism: And the Question of Jewish Identity

by Bejarano Gutierrez, Juan Marcos

Zionism, in its simplest form, was the movement for the establishment of a Jewish state in the historic land of Israel.

Many events including the breakdown of rabbinic authority, the rise of Shabbati Zevi, the rise of Hasidim, and the Jewish Enlightenment contributed to the Zionist movement. Today, Israeli society has transformed Zionism. This short book surveys these critical phases of Jewish history and the part they played in the evolution of Jewish identity and self-definition....

British leaders saw their singular aim as the maintenance of British colonial possessions. France, meanwhile, only wanted to ensure ...

These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings - Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes - are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the f...

Dispatches: Stories from War Zones, Police States and Other Hellholes

by Michael J. Totten

Prize-winning author and award-winning foreign correspondent Michael J. Totten returns with a riveting tour of some of the worst places on earth in the early 21st century.From crumbling Havana, Cuba—still stubbornly communist decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall—to a comparatively upscale Hanoi, Vietnam, still struggling to free itself from Chinese-style authoritarian rule. From a nightmarish Libya under the deranged Moammar Qaddafi, to an exhausted, polarized and increasingly fanatical Egypt before the Arab Spring finally ripped the region to pieces. From the Lebanese border during the devasting war between Israel and Hezbollah, to Iraq in the grips of an insurgency mounted by the murderous precursor to ISIS. Partly a collection of Totten’s best previously published work, Dispa...

Son of a Meddah

by NuFaShe

His parents had named him Sahl, meaning "easy," hoping that he would have a simple and happy life. Maybe if they had named him "difficult" it would actually have turned out that way. Born at the turn of the 20th century in the Ottoman Empire, Sahl had already experienced an earthquake, an assassination attempt on the sultan, the death of a family member, and his Empire's crushing defeat in the Balkans, which included a serious injury to his father, all before he was even a teenager. Hence, by the time World War I started, there wasn't really much Sahl hadn't been through. Until, of course, he finds who the Empire believes to be the root cause of all its problems and has sentenced to annihilation hiding in the back of his caravan.

The Term Democracy throughout the Islamic History

by Fatima Al-Barwari

The long-lasting swell of the „Arab Spring“ [arab. al-Rabīʻ al-ʻArabī], a Nations Movement which has extended from its Birthplace in Tunisia to the Arabian Peninsula and beyond, was at its core a national call for social and political change and security, fairness and equality under a noncorrupted rule of law. Most importantly it was a „Bread Revolution“ [arab. thawrat al-ʻaysh], reflecting the radical hardships of affording nourishments the people have been facing daily.For similar demands, the people of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Algeria aroused and infected States such as Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain. Through my researches I was aiming to discover the realism behind some voices chanting for Democracy during the revolutionary „Arab Spring“ uprisings all over the Middle East a...

DEBACLE: The Persian Gulf War Revealed Volume 2

by Mark Gery

Volume 2 of DEBACLE starts by offering the reader one of the only detailed presentations of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990.

The author finds that aid flows and geopolitics have served as both opportunities and obstacles to feminist politics in Afghanistan.

Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan.

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Ferdowsi Tusi, Abuʾl-Qasim

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran. Consisting of some 50,000 “distichs” or couplets (2-line verses), the Shahnameh is the world's longest epic poem written by a single poet. It tells mainly the mythical and to some extent the historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...

Egyptian Gods: Discover the Ancient Gods of Egyptian Mythology

by Stephan Weaver

△Egyptian Mythology△

Saudi Arabian Oil Policy and the Iran-Iraq War: What Drives Saudi Arabian Oil Policy?

by Alexander Hay

Saudi Arabian oil reserves are the largest in the world. This fact takes on vital significance in light of the Saudi's financial position. Historically, Saudi Arabia has had rather limited financial needs which has allowed it to vary its production according to Saudi desires rather than by necessity. This has placed Saudi Arabia in the theoretical position of dominant producer within OPEC, with the ability to lower production to support OPEC pricing policy in weak markets, and raise production in order to punish members whose actions go against the wishes of OPEC or Saudi Arabia.

However, Saudi Arabia has often been forced to take actions concerning oil policy which have been decidedly against its long term economic interests, and furthermore, against its long-term political i...

Islam, African Religion And People Of The Book

Arab Muslims, especially Islam's clerical class and Islam's learned scholars, are masters of historical distortion.This is an assessment and determination based on historical sources and fact. They use the Qur'an and their religion to shield themselves from criticism. They resort to intimidation as they themselves hurl crass invectives at unbelievers and the West for being disrespectful.Historically, the world has been deceived by Islam. The historical record shows that Arab Muslims and the Qur'an created color racism and prejudice.Contrary to prevailing popular belief, color racism and prejudice were neither Western innovations nor ideas created by Western or European White people.The Qur'an and Arab Muslims paved the way for Western White perversions of human rights under colonialism and...
