One of the most common recurring themes in modern Israeli propaganda, especially in the West, is the idea that the “conflict” is a “complicated” one. This idea is promoted by some of the “Friends of Israel” type groups, especially Labour Friends of Israel and other groups on the liberal side of Zionism. The idea underlying this myth is to confuse and disengage people, in order to turn them away from the situation, so that Israel can be allowed to get away with its occupation, apartheid and war crimes without worrying about political and popular pressure for them to cease. Polls have shown in the past that this has had some effect – although highly limited. A major survey recently released […]

PESHAWAR, Pakistan: The deputy governor of Afghanistan’s northeastern province of Kunar has been kidnapped in neighboring Pakistan, officials said Sunday, an incident which could further strain relations between Islamabad and Kabul.
Muhammad Nabi Ahmadi arrived in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Friday for an appointment with a doctor, senior police official Muhamad Sajjad Khan.
“He was in the Dabgari neighborhood of the city when gunmen forced him into a vehicle and drove away,” he said.
An official from the Afghan consulate in Peshawar confirmed the incident on condition of anonymity.
No group has claimed responsibility.
The incident comes a more than a year after a former governor of Afghanistan’s Herat province was kidnapped at a tightly guarded market in Islamabad. He was freed in the northwestern city of Mardan two weeks later.
Relations between the two countries have soured because of Pakistan’s perceived support for Taliban insurgents trying to topple the Kabul government.
Peshawar, near the frontier with Afghanistan, has long been a center for militant activity in both countries. Smugglers and drug traffickers use the city as a transport hub.
Peshawar has borne the brunt of militant violence for years and was the scene of the country’s deadliest-ever terror attack, a Taliban assault on an army-run school in 2014 that left more than 150 people dead — most of them children.
Earlier this month the Pakistani military rescued a US-Canadian family in nearby Kurram tribal district. They had been abducted by militants in Afghanistan in 2012.

Everyone loves a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day, but what if I told you that you could feel the same cosines with a bowl of this dessert? She’reya bil haleeb, which translates to vermicelli in milk, is very similar to rice pudding, but with less milk. It is very popular in the Middle East and is usually reserved for winter. Every household cooks theirs differently, depending on how they like it. I personally like to cook mine a little bit like risotto, by adding the milk gradually, adding a batch when the milk is mostly absorbed, with a final product that is only slightly runny. Other people prefer theirs quite runny and almost soupy. It is really […]
