4. We're just a big bunch of losers!!

Summary
Article summary: 

January 11, 2015 - An opinion piece on the Paris terror attacks on the French satirist magazine Charlie Hebdo, which was attacked on January 7, 2015 by two armed gunmen wherein 20 people died in four seperate locations. 

Cornelis Hulsman (Editor-in-chief): The attack in Paris was an act of terrorism. Nothing justifies taking away lives of people, even if one believes they were offensive. Offensives should be responded to in non-violent ways only. The terrorists achieved what they wanted. They killed people who offended their religious beliefs. The response is in deeper division between peoples of different religions and cultures in society. That makes us all losers. Don’t let terrorists draw us in such polarization. Khaled Hassan has been working with us since October 2014. We did not ask him to write a contribution for Arab-West Report. This came spontaneously from his heart and we fully support the views he is expressing here. It is absolutely terrible what happened but don’t give in to polemics. Reject all violence and keep communicating!

NOTE: This piece has remained unedited to remain true to the author's wording and emotion.

Summary
Article summary: 

January 11, 2015 - Water security has become an increasingly important topic in the development and stability of many countries, especially in the developing world. Three years ago Ethiopia began construction on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (herein referred to as the Renaissance Dam). The Renaissance Dam is being constructed on the Blue Nile, which supplies 85 percent of Egypt’s water. Previously, similar work has been conducted on the White Nile in Uganda, but that project’s purpose was the generation of electricity not the storage of water and thus it posed no real risk to Egypt’s sustainable water supply. Currently a rather delicate diplomatic siltation has developed between two of the countries that rely on the Nile. Egypt has requested that the Ethiopian’s halt progress on the Renaissance Dam until they are satisfied that their share of the Nile water flow is not diminished.

Summary
Article summary: 

December 24, 2014 - Dr. Rasmī ‘Abd al-Malak is advisor to the Center for Arab-West Understanding and the head of the educational committee of the Egyptian Family House [Bayt al-Eila], an independent institution created by government decree. It is run by the grand sheikh of the Azhar in partnership with the pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church, involving Egypt’s other Christian denominations as well.

The Family House is authorized to create branches in the governorates, so that the effort to protect and reinforce national unity between Muslims and Christians will be felt at the grassroots. But it is also authorized to interact directly with government ministers, so that their suggestions will be taken into serious consideration in the framework of national policy.

It is in this second capacity Arab West Report met with Dr. Rasmī ‘Abd al-Malak Rustum, who describes the work of the educational committee of the Family House in formulating recommendations to the minister of education. The interview was conducted on November 10, 2014, by Jayson Casper and ‘Adil Rizq Allah, board member of the Center for Arab-West Understanding.
