    territory dispute The Arab states\' relationship to the Palestine question has been saturated by myth and misunderstanding. Unquestionably, the issue has been an important aspect of modern Arab politics. But while Arab states seemed to be strongly engaged in the Arab-Israeli conflict, giving full, passionate backing for the Palestinian cause since the 1930s, they often acted in a cautious, constrained way based on national or self-interest. For decades, the PLO depended on the Arab world\'s dipl

  • Impact of econy by migration
    Impact of econy by migration Migration is one of the most important issues facing international politics today and is becoming more prevalent an issue every year.

It is true that in the United States prevailing orthodoxies on some questions are ruthlessly enforced but it is still legal to say just about anything. Not so i
