Canada’s best source for informed, lively commentary and
analysis on the issues facing the country — and the world.


Issue 16 – Winter / Spring 2005

There is much in this issue about The Middle East with articles, book reviews editorials and columns, even a pictorial on the use of Arabic in Israel. Articles look at Christian Zionism, Arab-Jewish dialogue groups in Canada, the rules of debate over Zionism, and Europe’s position on the conflict. There are reviews of eight key books on the subject of this interminable and tragic conflict. Closer to home, other articles look at electoral reform, youth politics, demergers in Montreal and mourn Claude Ryan and Eric Kierans
