The Saudi Arabia Monarchy

The Saudi Arabia Monarchy

The Saudi government maintained strict limits on citizens' political rights and civil liberties in 2004, despite taking some steps forward in a slow and quiet process of political reform carefully managed from above by the royal family. The monarchy continued a series of national dialogues on reform and finalized plans for a series of limited municipal elections in certain parts of the country in early 2005, but it implemented few tangible changes directly affecting Saudi citizens' rights.

Illustrating the Pentecostal Experience of the Holy Spirit

Searching for God, for truth, and for faith is often a long and arduous process in a person's life. For some it takes a lifetime to find their truth, others were raised in the tradition in which they find truth, and still others come to it at a crucial point in their lives and literally feel as if they have been born again, into a truth where they can place their faith.

A Holiday Tree or a Christmas Tree?

Here we go again. To call a Christmas tree or not to call it a Christmas tree. It is a Christmas Tree for Christ's sake, pardon the pun. I, for one, a Muslim, am not offended by the presence of a beautifully decorated tree adorning homes stores and offices. It's rather pleasant to look at, to say nothing of the goodies underneath it.

Harald Szeeman Utopia experimented as pure experience, as basic parallel research, free from the need to be efficient, links that which is possible to the impossible through the practice of calculations, whether parallel or not, whose poetical result allows the meeting of science and art as an "interconnection of fields of knowledge."

About the year 1640, James Howell, an English traveller spoke of "the Netherlands" as "the cockpit of Christendom."

Howell was not, of course, referring to the Dutch Netherlands, for within its frontiers comparatively few battles have been fought, but to the Low Countries, comprising what is now Belgian Flanders and the old French province of Artois.
