سنديان السويداء ولعنة الحرب السورية

تمتد أحراج السنديان في السويداء على مساحة مئات الدونمات في قرى الكفر والسهوة وقنوات وعلى أطراف المدينة الشرقية فيما يعرف بمحمية الضمنة، وحتى بداية الحرب السورية كانت مقصدا للاستجمام والرحلات ومتنفساً لأهل المدينة بما تحتويه من مناظر طبيعية وهواء نظيف. السنديان أشجار دائمة الخضرة وبطيئة النمو ومعمرة قد تصل إلى مئات السنين تتميز بخشب قاسي ومتين ويعتبر من أفضل أنواع الخشب، كما أنّ هكتاراً واحداً من السنديان يمتص ما يقارب 15 طن من غاز ثاني اكسيد الكربون في السنة ويطرح ما يعادلها من الاكسجين، ويعدل من سرعة الرياح بمقدار 40 بالمئة وتستجلب الرطوبة من مسافة 100 كم تقريباً، كما أنّ ثمارها كانت تستخدم فيما مضى في الغذاء في سنوات الجفاف والقحط. خلال فترة حكم العثمانيين والفرنسيين ...

Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf Cooperation Council Crisis

[Logo of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)]

It is tempting, and not entirely inaccurate, to dismiss the escalating crisis between Qatar and a number of its neighbors as a petulant princely playground spat. Extending this tempting logic, one could conclude that decisive victory by each of the protagonists would be the optimal outcome. Yet the dispute also reflects deeper dynamics in Arab and regional politics that are shaping the increasingly turbulent and violent realities of the Middle East. Saudi Arabia’s Gulf Cooperation Council The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which is the locus of the present crisis, was established in 1981 by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates ...

Caught Between Two Fires: Sudanese Refugees in Jordan

Ahmad is poised as a journalist from Kutum, a town that lies 120 kilm away from El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur in Sudan. His towering figure and wide shoulders sway slowly with each calculated step he takes around his home’s uneven floor, leaning on his aluminum cane for support. He is among the many Darfuris that have in recent years actively spoken out about persecution in their homeland: I am forced to raise my voice because my family members are victims. There are real problems: rape, banishment, displacement, occupation of lands. Armed strangers occupy known areas in Kutum. We don’t know who they are. There’s no police to defend us. Four years ago, ...

Michèle Jolé (M.J.): La question est particulièrement pertinente. Je m’y suis d’ailleurs, longuement  et sans doute avec complaisance, arrêtée dans le premier chapitre de ce livre.
