Power-sharing agreement fails to break political stalemate
Zimbabwe has been neck-deep in a political and economic crisis following in the wake of a Sept. 15 power-sharing agreement between the major political parties. The ruling ZANU-PF and the Western-backed opposition Movement for Democratic Change have been deadlocked over how ministries in a new national unity government would be allocated between the parties, with the highly coveted security ministries at the center of the dispute.

Israel is engulfed once more with righteous fury that translates into destructive policies in the Gaza Strip. This appalling self-justification for the inhumanity and impunity is not just annoying, it is a subject worth dwelling on, if one wants to understand the international immunity for the massacre that rages on in Gaza.
