Have Your Say: 15 Years of Peace عبر عن رأيك: 15 عاما من السلام

October 27, 2009

peaceFifteen years ago King Hussein became the second Arab leader to sign a peace agreement with Israel, taking criticism from many sides, but also being heavily rewarded with US financial and political support. 15 years later, we ask, what has the Wadi Araba peace agreement done for Jordan? Have we benefited from the agreement? The secretary general of the Jordanian Communist Party, Munir Hamarneh, said the peace treaty granted Israel "time to carry out its agenda in the region." Has the agreement helped or hurt chances of peace in the region? What are your thoughts? Have your say here.

قبل خمسة عشر عاما، كان الملك حسين ثاني قائد عربي يوقع اتفاقية سلام مع إسرائيل – في خطوة تلقت انتقادات من جهات مختلفة، ولكن في ذات الوقت مكنت الأردن من الحصول على المزيد من الدعم المادي والسياسي. بعد مرور خمسة عشر...

Everybody Texts Now: A Workshop on 'Data from Below' in the Middle East

October 23, 2009

Apply here: http://everybodytexts.eventbrite.com/?ref=esfb UNICEF Innovation and MobileActive.org invite you to attend a three-day workshop on distributed and real-time data collection, monitoring, and visualization of data with mobile technology. What is this About? With the ubiquity of mobile technology, data collection and monitoring of key indicators from the ground up by affected populations is now possible. Mobile technology in the hands of people can now be more than a person-to-person communication medium but can be used for capturing, classifying and transmitting image, audio, location and other data, interactively or autonomously. By involving people in defining and participating in their own data collection, this approach can address significant unmet challenges in large-scale data collection for public health and citizen participation. In this three-day workshop, we will explore the critical issues, technologies, and architectures involved in collecting and utilizing data-from-below, bringing together the key technology and research leaders on distributed data collection and distribution in the Middle East.

A Golden Stone Thrown In The Lake

October 22, 2009

Palestinian Flags Written by Farah Mehdawi. I have certainly not been expecting Obama to pull the rabbit out of the hat and surprise us all with some solution that could push forward the peace process, especially after winning the Nobel Prize. While the world is dazzled with Obama's magical tunes with promises of peace, prosperity and a better future, the only thing people have seen are Mitchell's crocked eyebrow after his meetings with the Israelis, Clinton's warnings to the Israelis of seizing settlement construction. All the while suppressing Palestinians' right to proceed with discussing the Goldstone report in the UNHRC, simply to let things go smoothly between Israelis and Palestinians and keep all that has passed behind them. I haven’t been expecting the Palestinians to reconcile any time soon either. Simply because the whole issue of having to bring Hamas to this...
