  • Arabs need unity, not conflict

    This newfound animosity is ironic because the Algerian revolution in the 1950s against the occupying French was supported by the charismatic Egyptian leader Jamal Abdul Nasser. Similarly, the Algerians rose to the occasion and supported the Egyptians in their conflicts with Israel in the 1960s and 1970s, But today they are being lampooned by Egyptians for supposedly preferring to speak French, rather than Arabic. This is unacceptable behaviour from both sides.
