Children of the Magi: A Sacred History of the Kurds and the Persians

by Christopher Crossan

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. 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...

Don’t Say we didn’t Know

by Amos Gvirtz

The Israeli – Palestinian conflict – a new approach!This book is formulated with the understanding that on both sides of the Israeli – Palestinian conflict there are people who want the same thing: peace and protection of human rights.
