Summary
Article summary: 

Is President Clinton capable of achieving what he demanded yesterday? He gave a severe warning to President Milosevic, saying the latter should comply with all NATO conditions or he would lose Kosovo. In short, the allied forces will occupy, if not the entire country, then at least the trouble spots.

I ask Muslims, where are you? How long will you succumb, submit, be passive? Can’t you do something! Clinton threatens and warns. Why must you submit? This shocks me for patience is not enough. We all knew beforehand that the NATO war would lead to nothing. Meanwhile, you Muslims continue to look to right and left, in confusion.

Summary
Article summary: 

Cypriots are obsessed by centuries-old animosities and who remain loyal to religious and ethnic lines drawn as far back as the Middle Ages, just like the peoples of the Balkans. The apparent obsession with religion as the ultimate decider of who is friend, and who foe.
It places Cyprus on a par with those radical Islamist zealots throughout the world who are apt to detect the hand of "neo-crusaders" in every conflict in which Muslims are involved.

Summary
Article summary: 

Since he narrowly escaped an assassination attempt by the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad, in September 1997, the Amman-based chief of Hamas’ political bureau, Khalid Misha’al, has been living under tight security.

Misha’al knows all too well that he is still likely to be targeted by the Israelis.

"We know that this is an unbalanced war [against Israel], but resistance will continue. The only way to stop resistance is to end occupation, and this is a natural right. Nobody can prevent a people from fighting occupation, and even if they kill some of Hamas’ leaders, new ones will emerge. We [Palestinians] have been struggling since the 1920s, and that is the way it has been. No one has been able to end our resistance."
