by Rachel Shabi

The White Widow is alive. And she's back. Like Jason Bourne's evil, female twin, this woman seems to have a formidable capacity for comeback. The last we heard of the Muslim convert super-terrorist and wife of one of Britain’s 7/7 suicide bombers, she had been shot dead in Ukraine late last year. Before that, this security-evading terror mastermind, whose actual name, if anyone is interested, is Samantha Lewthwaite, was on Interpol’s most wanted list.

Nakba

Each year on May 15th the Palestinians across the world commemorate “Al Nakba Day”. This year it is the 67th commemoration. Al Nakba means the catastrophe, and refers to the Zionist occupation of Palestine, the numerous massacres they perpetrated against Palestinians, the ethnic cleansing, the dispossession, the total destruction of hundreds of Palestinian communities, the forced expulsion, the supplanting of Zionist Jews in place of indigenous Palestinians and the creation of the terrorist entity of Israel that is still spreading havoc, death and destruction in the whole Middle East.
