Leaving Islam in the age of Islamism

The past several years have witnessed every single young man or woman with a shred of critical thinking to leave the Islamist movement.

Arab paper: Leave Israel alone, deal with Syria

In an editorial entitled, "The solution to Gaza…return to Syria," Alhomayed wrote that, " Unfortunately, wars in our region have become like a race, so each war is to cover another one.
