By Dr. N. Raphaeli*
On August 13, 2009, the Iraqi daily Al-Zaman cited a statement by Yousef Al-Matlabi, political advisor to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, accusing Saudi Arabia of inciting violence in Iraq.

Saturday, 17 October 2009 17:58

Al Waref Institute is joining the cause of Bread for the World organization to help end poverty and hunger in the world. Countries in which a large portion of the population battles hunger daily are usually poor and often lack the social safety nets we enjoy, such as soup kitchens, food stamps and job training programs.
