Israel and Saudi Arabia have no diplomatic relations, but this should not prevent them from coordinating regional security. Both understand that there is no alternative superpower in the region to the US. Their future challenge is how to avoid past mistakes, such as the US over reaction in invading Iraq, or its under reaction, as in the case of the Syrian civil war and Iran’s nuclear project.
Admittedly, these conversations aren’t easy. But the conversation I had with my father wasn’t that hard, either. (…) As I said to my father, “Don’t you want to make these decisions yourself? If you don’t make them, someone else will, and there’s no guarantee that someone else will respect your wishes.” Have the conversation. It’s a matter of life and death.
Historically there is a belief that if you choose someone from an ethnic minority group you risk alienating other ethnic minority groups . . . therefore they (political parties) are hesitant, but it just doesn’t work that way(…)The change will just happen as the younger generation, who is colour blind or gender blind, start to be the elites.

Ces hommes apprivoisent la cuisine, prennent soin de leur corps, valorisent davantage la communication et la réflexion. Ces hommes ne sont pas des hommes féminisés. Ils reflètent les réalités de notre époque.
