The 1990s continued to be a busy time for the Catholic Worker. Desert Storm and the increased military actions in the Middle East remained major parts of the Catholic Worker. One increasingly major part of this focus was Palestine and the increasing violence in that region in the 1990s. In the United States, many of the recurring issues of the past few decades remained ever present in the pages of the Catholic Worker. Regularly there were columns on economic disparities and the growth of the US military industrial complex.
