THE LEGEND OF ELKADER I Elemir Khaled Eldjazairy and this is a glimpse of my life during my youth, I was born in Damascus - Syria 3rd of Nov. 1960, both my father and mother are distant cousins from the same family tree. A simple couple very humble and their main worry was how to provide me and my brother with proper education. I was born in Syria although my origin is Algerian due to the French exile of my great grand father Elemir Abdelkader to Damascus Syria. My father migrated to Kuwait when I was 3 years old then Algeria, Libya, Scotland, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E. and back to Saudi Arabia. My age was 11 years old and my brother Mohamed Omar 9 years old, when our mother Baraat got worried about our educational status, due to the continuous travel of my father Nizar seeking a job anywhere in the world, Baraat passed her worry to Nizar and told him that he should find a solution otherwise we will both lose our education especially when we keep changing from one country to another. So my mother suggested that he should send us to a boarding school and once they settle in one country they will bring us back. My father thought this was a good suggestion since he was in a boarding school in Lebanon, so the first thing that crossed his mind was Lebanon.

Jesus and Jihad

Few words inspire more fear in Americans these days than jihad. Its mere utterance conjures up images of car bombs exploding in crowded mrkets; Boeing 737s crashing into tall buildings; and flag-burning, gun-toting bearded Arab men shouting, "allahu akbar" and "Death to America!" But what if all our stereotypical images of jihad are wrong, and when rightly understood, jihad turns out to be the perfect lens through which to understand the life and mission of Jesus? Jesus and Jihad argues that in early Muslim sources jihad stood for the struggle to transform a violent and unjust pre-Islamic society into one characterized by greater levels of justice and peace. When rescued from his Christian pietistic misinterpretations, Jesus emerges as a highly prophetic figure of resistance to the injustices authorized by Roman imperial power. As Muslims reengage an authentic understanding of jihad, and Christians, through a renewed understanding of jihad, meet the prophetic Jesus from whom they have become estranged, a new era of Christian-Muslim cooperation in the struggle against injustice can become the norm, replacing the current antipathy dividing these communities with a passion to reclaim once again a prophetic heart in service to a hurting world.

While numerous classical dictionaries identify the figures and tales of Greek and Roman mythology, this reference book explains the allegorical significance attached to the myths by Medieval and Renaissance authors. Included are several hundred alphabetically arranged entries for the gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines, and places of classical myth and legend. Each entry includes a brief account of the myth, with reference to the Greek and Latin sources. The entry then discusses how Medieval and Renaissance commentators interpreted the myth, and how poets, dramatists, and artists employed the allegory in their art. Each entry includes a bibliography and the volume concludes with appendices and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources.
