الشاعر علي محمد لقمان في رثائه القمندان وعصره وكأنه يصف عصرنا هذا:
مطلعها
كوكب عز أن يلاقي المثيلا ضاق بالناس فاستطاب الأفولا
ويقول فيها
لا تلوموا فؤاد من بهر الأزمان إذ مزق البقاء الذليلا
ربما شاء غير ما زعم الناس من الخير فارتأى المستحيلا
ربما أبصر النعيم وريف ال ظل فأختار ما رَآه طليلا
طالما قام صاحب القلب فينا ودعا الناس فأستذموا الفضولا
آه مما يردد الناس عمن عاش يبغى إلى الإصلاح سبيلا
كل من همه صلاح البريا يجد الهم في العناء مهولا
إن من يجعل القلوب كبارا يجعل العبقري فينا رسولا
تتلوى السماء من جهل أهل الأر ض كالعلم إذ يصيب الجهولا
ما لنا نستريح في دنف الس قم ونلقى لهوله تعليلا
فشل حز في النفوس وعجز يرهب الناس إن أرادوا الجليلا

Panel on Yemen in Washington D.C.

arabgulf

Yemen is in the grip of its most severe crisis in years, with a Saudi-led military campaign against the rebel Houthis now in its sixth month. Civilian casualties continue to mount, the internally displaced population grows, and Yemen’s already weak infrastructure teeters on the verge of collapse.

Amidst the chaos and suffering of the ongoing war, what are the prospects for a political solution, and how does Yemen tackle the urgent need for reconciliation and reconstruction in a post-conflict scenario? What will be the immediate priorities, and how quickly can the international community mobilize resources to help stabilize and rebuild Yemen?

The Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington is pleased to host a panel discussion on these and other aspects of the challenges that will face Yemen and the international community following the cessation of the ongoing conflict.

Scholar Rescue Fund

rescue

Around the world, scholars have long suffered harassment, torture and persecution as a result of their work. In the worst cases, scholars pay with their lives for their dedication to scholarship and freedom of thought. The Institute of International Education (IIE), an independent nonprofit, has participated in the rescue of persecuted scholars since its founding in 1919. In 2002, IIE launched the Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF) as a formalized response to this ongoing international dilemma.

The Scholar Rescue Fund provides fellowships for established scholars whose lives and work are threatened in their home countries. These fellowships permit professors, researchers and public intellectuals to find temporary refuge at universities, colleges and research centers anywhere in the world, enabling them to pursue their academic work in safety and to continue to share their knowledge with students, colleagues and the community. During the fellowship, conditions in a scholar’s home country may improve, permitting safe return to help rebuild universities and societies afflicted by fear, conflict and repression. If safe return is not possible, the scholar may use the fellowship period to identify a longer-term opportunity.

Eligibility Criteria

Professors, researchers, and public intellectuals from any country, academic field, or discipline may qualify. Applications are reviewed for academic qualifications, the quality/potential of the applicant’s work, and the severity of the threats that the applicant faces. Preference is given to scholars who:
