The aftermath of 9/11 and the corresponding rise of global militarism
and imperialism have had deep consequences for the
realities of Muslims around the world. The reemergence of
Orientalist representations have provided the ideological justifications
for military incursions. This short reflective article outlines
the challenge that critical educators faced in developing an
epistemological and pedagogical framework and resources for
anti-Islamophobia education in response to the resurgence of
neo-Orientalist politics and representations.
The current influx of new immigrant groups, some of whom also have relatively high rates of birth, will fuel continued growth in the number of students who enter school with little or no English proficiency and whose cultural and educational backgrounds may not correspond to the norms and expectations they encounter when they start formal schooling.

Therefore I will first outline in this paper what I understand by intercultural dialogue and present my idea of it. Secondly I will show in which way intercultural dialogue can contribute to conflict transformation and thirdly 1 will say what could be a feminist perspective in approaching this question.

Just dip into the booklet, try the activities and highlight those you like. Most of the
activities are games which are best played for about 10 minutes so that the children
will want to play them again when learning other languages. Spread the activities over
the month and adapt them to suit your class. For example, play two 10minute
per week and use stickers to reward the children for playing the games well.

This paper examines the politics of knowledge production as it
relates to Muslim women in western literary traditions and contemporary feminist writing, with a view to understanding the
political, ideological, and economic mediations that have historically framed these representations. The meta-narrative of the
Muslim woman has shifted from the bold queens of medieval literature to colonial images of the seraglio’s veiled, secluded, and
oppressed women. Contemporary feminist writing and popular
culture have reproduced the colonial motifs of Muslim women,
and these have regained currency in the aftermath of 9/11.
This paper heuristically and generically describes community as any kind of human collectivity regardless of size, developmental stage or vitality. The main thesis introduced here is that the future of a human community could be guaranteed only by maintaining a balance between particular volitions and collective responsibility. Such balance is established through normative dialogue and discourse based on constructive communication. The Israeli society, as a one rifted by ideological and moral conflicts, must develop a culture of dialogue in order to survive.
