The Toronto Jewish Film Festival is dropping a documentary on Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon because of security concerns. The festival's organizers say the award-winning film, "The Accused," based on Sharon's life, could invite unwanted attention from interest groups. "This seems to be a more explosive year security-wise, so we're just trying to be careful," Helen Zukerman, the festival's executive director, said Friday.

Conservative pundits often justify U.S. support for various brutal right-wing dictatorships by making a fine distinction between them and left-wing dictatorships. The key word is always "totalitarian." Communist governments are totalitarian because they create government-centered societies in which the state is often accorded semi-religious status.

The Syrian government has reached agreement with an Iranian-backed militia group in Lebanon to end the recurrent fighting in Beirut's southern suburbs and impose a Syrian security plan in the beleaguered area, a high-ranking Damascus official announced Thursday.
