What law school did Rodriguez go to? To say everybody of similar heritage should think alike is a throwback to the racists politics that brought us to this mess. It is time to recognize we are all individuals and not lump people together for convenience. It is Gloria Molina's individual chutzpah that would make her a great candidate for mayor.

Fans laid on a hero's welcome when Jose Tomas made a triumphal return to professional bullfighting in Barcelona three years ago, ending a much-lamented retirement. But when Tomas arrives here next month for another comeback of sorts — one of his first engagements since being badly gored in Mexico in April — the celebrated matador could find himself in quite a different position: as an outlaw. Regional lawmakers are expected to decide soon whether to abolish bullfighting once and for all here in Catalonia.

February 15, 2004 | Daniel Levitas, Daniel Levitas is the author of "The Terrorist Next Door: The Militia Movement and the Radical Right."
On Nov. 13, 1988, three white youths brutally murdered a 28-year-old Ethiopian immigrant named Mulugeta Seraw on a dark street in Portland, Ore. Seraw was returning home from a party with two companions, who also were beaten by his assailants. The attackers were affiliated with a local skinhead group, East Side White Pride. Kyle Brewster, 19, a heavily tattooed former high school homecoming king, pummeled Seraw while one or more skinhead girls screamed "Kill him, kill him!" from the sidelines.

The currently publicized conflict between Black Muslims and Jews is due to their similarities, not their differences. The problem is a theology of separatism. Separatism requires a community to set itself against all others (usually by claiming that all other communities are against it). Are there any accusations more common (and more inflammatory) than racism and anti-Semitism? If the only end to this conflict is for one community to assume all responsibility and guilt, then it will never end. I suggest a better way. What is needed is a theology that includes forgiveness, humility, and charity and one whose doctrines teach that, in spite of our differences, we are all God's children and required not only to love but to forgive our neighbor.

Besieged by critics seeking a revival of French-Canadian separatism, Pierre Marc Johnson resigned as leader of the Parti Quebecois a little more than a week after the death of party founder Rene Levesque. Since Johnson, 41, became leader of the Quebec opposition party two years ago, its membership has slumped from 75,000 to 54,000. Criticism of his leadership intensified after the death of Levesque on Nov. 1.

As an atheist with a lifelong concern for human values, I have often felt myself in sympathy with many of the traditional religions that attempt to deal with the human condition. In that spirit, I must assume that Pope John Paul's suggestion that atheism has brought the world to its anguish must be due to an ignorance of political and religious separatism. How sad that this good man, and one to whom millions look for spiritual guidance should become part of the problem as perpetuator.

Congratulations on the free ride you gave to MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan). According to your Aug. 30 article, a document titled "El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan" does not reflect its current goals. However, I checked MEChA's national Web pages. This document was among those considered "essential to the philosophy of MEChA." The site said, "Every MEChista should be familiar with them." This document starts out talking about "the brutal 'gringo' invasion of our territories" and saying that "Aztlan" does not belong to "the foreign Europeans."

With the winds of division still rustling through the bronzed maples of Quebec, President Clinton met here Friday with the province's champion of independence but hewed throughout the day to the United States' support for Canadian unity. It was the first meeting between a U.S. president and a separatist premier. Offering only an allusion--but an unmistakable reference nonetheless--to the dispute that has roiled Canada for generations, Clinton said at the dedication of a new U.S.

President Mikhail S. Gorbachev, warning that his country's defense capabilities are under threat, decreed Saturday that rebellious Soviet republics no longer can be allowed to challenge Moscow's military policy, particularly by interfering with conscription. Gorbachev's decree came in reaction to attempts by governments in the Soviet Union's 15 constituent republics to establish their own armies or to limit the military service of their youth to their own territory.

The new face of Turkish authority in this restless Kurdish metropolis wears a black ski mask. The mask is the calling card of a police squad known as the Special Team. Its members, armed with automatic rifles, prowl the city's most volatile streets at night, hunting for any display of support for the fighters who waged a 15-year separatist war in this predominantly Kurdish province of southeastern Turkey.

Rival Kurdish factions in northern Iraq, seen as important allies in the event of a Bush administration campaign against Saddam Hussein, took a major step Friday toward shelving decades of fratricidal feuding. The Kurdish parliament based in the Iraqi city of Irbil unanimously approved a U.S.-brokered peace agreement formally ending more than six years of war between Massoud Barzani's Kurdistan Democratic Party and Jalal Talabani's Patriotic Union of Kurdistan.

Masked Spanish police stormed the headquarters of Basque nationalist party Batasuna on Monday night after the lower house of parliament and a senior judge launched a two-pronged attack to ban the group, which is accused of links to the outlawed separatist group ETA.

The young man across the banquet table looked to be about 13, eyes serious behind wire-rimmed glasses as he sat stiffly in suit and tie on an evening when most boys his age were probably kicking back, watching the Laker game on TV. Flanked by his grandparents, he watched an unlikely procession of graduating college students strutting across the stage collecting accolades. There was the young woman who thanked her mother and infant son, the baby born during her senior year.

Being a mayor in southeastern Turkey, where most people are Kurdish, can be tricky. You've got to satisfy the voters' desire to express their ethnic identity more openly, without raising suspicion among Turkish officials that you are encouraging separatism. Last summer, after two years in office here, Emrullah Cin hit upon what he thought was a safe formula: He organized a festival to celebrate the shelengo, a strain of cucumber that, he claims, grows only in Viransehir and requires no water.

Basque separatists in Spain ended a 19-month lull in their guerrilla war Friday by killing an army officer in one of two car bombings apparently aimed at hurting Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's party in parliamentary elections. The blasts in Madrid, set off by remote control during the morning rush hour, rocked a neighborhood populated by military personnel. The first blast killed army Lt. Col.
