Islamic World Top 10
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

Alt.muslim puts the fun back in foreign affairs:  A top ten list we couldn't have written ourselves at democracyarsenal but that is worth some study:  alt.muslim's "Top Ten Good News Stories of 2005."  Do yourself a favor and check it out.

I guarantee that you will not have heard about all ten of the developments.  You read about the Aceh peace agreements here; if you are a human rights type you know about Rebiya Kadeer;  it's good to be reminded that Bangladesh sent us charity after Hurricane Katrina; but check out Kenya's camel libraries and the Muslim admiral who discovered America.

If you ever have occasion to write, give interviews or lecture (even to friends and family) about international affairs and "clash of civilizations" type issues, you will enjoy having some of these good news tidbits tucked away in the back of your brain.

And wrapping your brain around someone else's perspective on the year past is good mental gymnastics, whether you agree with it or not -- we used to think understanding other perspectives was essential to success in foreign policy, but that just sounds so 1990s, doesn't it?

I like to earn the World of Warcraft Gold very much, I want to have a lot of warcraft gold in the game, i do not satisfy the old equipment and so i have to buy wow gold to buy the new equipment to make me strong. If i am very strong in the game i can get some cheap wow gold as the rewards in the game. So i like the game very much.

Yesterday, my boyfriend gave me a lot of Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold and I buy potbs Doubloon as the gift to return him. The potbs gold is attractive and I have plenty of the potbs Doubloon.


I hope i can get GuildWars Gold in low price.
i buy Guild Wars Gold for you.

Once I played kung fu, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have World of Kung fu Gold. That he gave me some WoKf gold.

You are right Tibia Platinum, I am glad ti see you Tibia Gold.

Do you like playing the game where you need to use priston tale Gold, when you do not have priston tale Money,

You are right Tibia Platinum

You are right Tibia Platinum
