When kleptocracies fail

Folks, in Azure’s Winter 2007 issue, at www.azure.org.il, you'll be able to read “The Gene Wars” by Paul S. Appelbaum and Diana Muir Appelbaum, which explores the way failing national movements – including the Palestinians, Macedonians, and others – are now turning to genetic research to “prove” their people’s claims to land. The essay shows just how unreliable the science of it really is, and why it is a mistake to try and substantiate such claims on “scientific” grounds.

Click here to read another excellent article by Diana Muir on Muslim propaganda at the University of Chicago, at their museum, The Oriental Institute, in which history is rewritten and Mohammed actually travels to Jerusalem.
