On 17 May, Taiwan’s Parliament (the Legislative Yuan) passed a law legalizing same-sex marriages. This happened a week before the deadline, set by the Supreme Court (which functions as a Constitutional Court on the island) in its ruling of 24 May 2017 to be enacted into law, expired....

In the past, whenever I went to (or more precisely, ‘through’) Israel, it was for some antagonistic purpose: to write about the brutal suppression of the intifada in Gaza or Hebron, to comment on the insanity of the land grab around Bethlehem, or to report from the eerie and de-populated...

One story that has received little attention is that of an Armenian genocide survivor and killer of two Turkish Diplomats in the US in 1973. Gurgen Yanikiyan, age 77 lured two diplomats into a hotel room in the US State of California and shot them dead (and to be sure)—he finished them...
