  • Israel: No 'promised land’ or ‘chosen people,' says VaticanDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    October 28, 2010

    "We Christians cannot speak about the promised land for the Jewish people. There is no longer a chosen people. All men and women of all countries have become the chosen people," Archbishop Cyril Salim Bustros of the Greek Melkite Catholic Church last week. "The concept of the promised land cannot be used as a base for the justification of the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of Palestinians. The justification of Israel's occupation of the land of Palestine cannot be based on sacred scriptures."

  • The lies of the US presidents kill millionsDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    November 10, 2010

    Colin Powell's shameful lie - in his speech to the UN about Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction seven years ago - should be taught to high school and university students as a text book case for how US (elected) presidents and their (appointed) men and women lie to their people and to the world and how as result they export death, destruction and misery to millions of men, women and children the world over.

  • Sufism-a life for truth seekersDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    November 17, 2010

    There was a time when many Muslims were members of the Sufi order. Sufis would practice what other Muslims did and more. They would try hard to be God-centered on planet Earth.

  • Muslims judging MuslimsDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    November 24, 2010

    Islam has no place for excommunicating a Muslim. Any person who chooses to declare in public that "la-elaha-ila-Allah, Muhammed rasul-Allah"; "I witness that there is no deity except the One God, and Muhammed is His messenger" is a Muslim.

    In Canada and the US most politicians are lawyers. But engineers are wealth generators, problem solvers and civilization builders; we need more of them in politics.

  • Margaret Wente, paid to be meanDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    December 8, 2010

    In her column on November 30, Margaret Wente, of Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper, praised Australia for telling immigrants that "if they miss their elderly parents, they should buy a plane ticket home," instead of allowing them - as the case in Canada - to use "a family reunification program." She praised Australia again by saying that "language competence is so essential to immigrant success that if you can't speak English, you can't get in."

  • My visit to OmanDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    December 17, 2010

    Oman is not well known to Canadians. We do not have an embassy there and Oman does not have one in Ottawa. My visit to Oman was triggered by my visit to the beautiful island of Zanzibar, earlier this year. I have fallen in love with Zanzibar from reading about its fascinating history, both in English and Arabic. It’s the history that brought me here to Oman.

  • My New Year resolution Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    January 5, 2011

    On December 7, 2010 Muslims marked a new Islamic year, the year 1432 A.H. and the world marked a new 2011 year last Saturday. It is not a tradition among Muslims to make a New Year resolution. But the practice does not do any harm, and it can do a lot of good.

  • Alexandria's bombingDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    January 13, 2011

    (Cairo) The bombing near a church in Alexandria on New Year's Eve, local time, was sad news, which affected me personally. First, I was in the area 72 hours before the bombing touring the city with my family from Canada; remembering the summer days I used to spend at its beaches when I was a teenager. Secondly, I was born and raised in Cairo's district of Shubra (was in the news following the bombing) where the highest concentration of Christian Copts live.

  • What if 9/11 was not hijacked by the U.S. extreme right and Zionists?Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    January 20, 2011

    9/11 was, and still is, the most politicized terror attack this century; hijacked by the American extreme right and Zionists to advance their political agenda; exporting wars, death, destruction and misery, eroding civil liberties at home and disrespecting human lives including those of Americans'. But what if America's extreme right and Zionists had not hijacked 9/11 and the U.S. government had treated 9/11 as a terror attack, as a tragedy, as a criminal act of violence which needed to be properly investigated?
