This house believes the Middle East would be better off with John McCain in the White House ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The latest Doha Debate has conclusively warned America that a victory by John McCain in the US Presidential election would further damage relations with the Middle East. Hafez al-Mirazi, the former host of Al-Jazeera's Arabic weekly television show From Washington said that just as President George W. Bush had made the Middle East "worse than it was eight years ago" so his "hawkish Republican mate" would do the same. In an opening statement that drew loud applause, Mr. al-Mirazi warned that Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate, was from the same warmongering mould as Dick Cheney, Bush"s vice-president, "who happens to be a quail hunter." Dr. Michael Signer, foreign policy adviser to Democratic Senator John Edwards' presidential campaign in 2007-2008 and a foreign policy expert, also attacked the motion and the dangers a McCain victory would present. Describing Barak Obama, the Democrat nominee, as "thoughtful and deliberate", he said such qualities were of paramount importance during the present troubled times. He said Senator Obama was an African-American who spent his formative years in Indonesia, a Muslim nation, and would be a president "who wants to understand and listen, rather than just talk." Danielle Pletka, Vice President for Foreign and Defence Policy Studies at the American Institute for Public Policy Research, supported the motion, suggesting that Senator McCain was the only Presidential candidate who would not "walk away" from Iraq, leaving the region to return to sectarian violence. Dr. Saad al-Ajmi, former Kuwaiti Minister for Information and Culture, said he supported the motion largely because he feared that Senator Obama would pull US troops out of Iraq prematurely
al-Maktabah al-turāthīyah : mukhtārāt min kunūz al-turāth al-ʻArabī wa-al-Islāmī ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The founder of the library, H.E. Shaikh Dr. Hasan Bin Mohamed Al-Thani ... has been able, in a period of 20 years, to collect about 85,000 titles in different subjects which some date back [to the] 15th century, the discovery of printing in Europe ... The Library was established in early 1979 when Sheikh Hassan took an initiative of collecting rare and famous European books and encyclopedias in different fields ... Today, this library is one of the most important research centres not only in the Gulf region but also in the Middle East. It contains about 85,000 invaluable books in Arabic and foreign languages, about 600 antique maps, charts and 2000 manuscripts"--P [8]
This house believes that Muslims are failing to combat extremism ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An overwhelming majority at the latest Doha Debate has criticised Muslims around the world for failing to combat extremism. Ed Husain, a British campaigner against fundamentalism, challenged the many Muslims who travel each year to Mecca to stand up to extremism 'right there'; claiming 'Saudi Arabia has totally demolished our heritage in Mecca and Medina.' Such public criticism of the Saudi Kingdom -- as well as Muslims in general -- is extremely rare in the Middle East. During the early 1990s Husain was a recruiter to fundamentalist groups at university campuses in the UK. Now deputy director of The Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, he insisted, "Muslims have to change their mindset of blaming others or we will be the laughing stock of the world." The motion was supported by US human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar, who criticised Muslims for the mass demonstrations over cartoons in Denmark and the comparative silence over sectarian violence in Iraq. Speaking against the motion, Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, claimed the era of extremism was over. Alongside her, Moez Masoud, a Muslim 'televangelist' watched by millions in the region, accused the media of ignoring Muslim calls for tolerance

This house believes that Arab women should have full equality with men ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A few weeks ago, women in Kuwait finally caught up to their counterparts in Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and much of the rest of the Arab world, when they were given the right to vote and run for office, the result of a 35-23 vote in parliament. Kuwaiti women won the right, however, under the condition that they abide by Islamic law. What limits will such a condition, placed by Islamic lawmakers who had previously succeeded in blocking the vote, put on the women's newly earned right to participate in the decision-making of their country? According to some fundamentalist Muslim teaching, women in Islam are not allowed the right to hold positions of political leadership. They are, however, allowed the right to divorce, inherit property, be educated and conduct business. Should Arab women enjoy equal status with men? Does equality necessarily mean the same rights? This Wednesday, June 1, four distinguished speakers will explore these and related arguments in the seventh in the series of Doha Debates, presented by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. Chaired by former BBC presenter Tim Sebastian, the Doha Debates revolve around a motion presented to a live audience -- in this case, 'This House believes that Arab women should have equality with men.' Two speakers argue for the motion and two speak against it. Sebastian draws out the speakers, challenging their positions, and then opens the debate to questions from the audience. Finally the audience votes to accept or reject the motion, based on the merits of the arguments the speakers have made. Speaking in favor of the motion will be Dr. Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a Kuwaiti presenter of numerous Islamic programs on local and satellite television. He will be joined by Toujan Faisal, the first woman elected into the Jordanian parliament. Speaking against the motion will be Sheikh Jihad Brown, an Islamic scholar and a consultant for various Islamic projects in the region. He will be joined by Khola Hassan, an author who has been outspoken on the position of women in Islam
