Given the vacuum of moral responsibility across the Middle East, who can trivialise the trial of Benjamin Netanyahu?
We pick and choose who we want to stand trial among the leaders across the region – but the law is something that binds us all, writes Robert Fisk

Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi

The Israelis – like the Arabs, by the way – have committed plenty of war crimes: the wholesale shooting dead of unarmed Palestinians, the bombing of apartment blocks containing innocent men, women and children, the massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon in 1982, the mass destruction of homes and businesses, the imprisonment without trial of thousands of Palestinians.
