Islam and the West

Always contrary to what the US calls “normal behaviour”, Iran’s information minister Javad Azari-Jahromi said, “No big deal, you just killed your creature”. But the New York Times’ establishment columnist Thomas Friedman notes, satirically, how “effusive Trump was of the intelligence agencies who found and tracked al-Baghdadi to his lair in Syria where he blew himself up to avoid being captured”....

 

These notions have long since been shown to be false as far as modern France is concerned, although considering the deplorable treatment of women under the church, it is no surprise that “feminism” is deployed as a weapon to overthrow divine law....

 

But in France, it has sparked a deeply concerning escalation of Islamophobia - one that is being fuelled at least in part by the words and actions of Macron and other political leaders.....

At the moment, the UK government doesn’t offer a system where a Halal student loan can be taken out. A Halal student loan system could allow Muslim students to take out a loan but make charitable contributions rather than paying interest back. While that’s being discussed, some Muslims are missing out. ...

The policies that cage Latinx children, ban Muslim children and shoot black children are the end product of a lengthy history of portraying black and brown people as monsters....

In the coming months, as the campaign for the next US presidency heats up, President Trump will undoubtedly claim that he has singlehandedly defeated the IS. ...

 

“Osama bin Laden was very big,” Mr. Trump said, but “this is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, a country, a caliphate, and was trying to do it again.” Mr. Trump might not know his Nusra Front from his Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, but in this case he’s not exactly wrong....

 

What has happened in Syria since 2011 has affected what has happened elsewhere, a chain of events that has destabilized the Middle East and the world. And that will be as true of Turkey’s recent incursion, with American approval, against the Kurds as anything that came before....

The idea that one individual can unilaterally decide the fate of a population 10,000km away on a whim and, worse, surrender even an inch of a state’s sovereign territory to a third entity is illegal, immoral and downright dangerous...

News of the American withdrawal set off jubilation among Islamic State supporters on social media and encrypted chat networks. It has lifted the morale of fighters in affiliates as far away as Libya and Nigeria….

 

The pithiest summary of Donald Trump’s foreign policy comes from the president himself. Referring to the mayhem he has uncorked in Syria, he tweeted: “I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away!”...

We have run campaigns about the punitive impact sanctions are having on ordinary people in Iran, including the denial of life-saving medication, something The Times has been all too quiet about. It’s all a little bit pot, kettle, dark satanic mills?...

An end to the Western policy of arming the Y.P.G. and ensuring that north-eastern Syria will not be used as a zone to challenge Turkish national security will create the right conditions for Turkey to overhaul its ailing political system and expand the sphere of liberties.

The United States, since its emergence as a Big Power in the wake of World War II, has openly pursued at best an amoral — and at times, where suitable, an immoral — path when formulating its foreign policy....

How shocking can a headscarf be? In France, these days, the answer is “very”. Last week, during a school trip to the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté regional council in Dijon, eastern France, a woman with a headscarf was shouted at by an official in the middle of the council meeting....

In the days since, the expected has happened. Turkish forces have moved into northern Syria, and the shaky Kurdish-defended buffer zone has become the site of mayhem. ...

 

All of it was foreseeable: the death and displacement, the atrocities, the flight of jihadists and the return of a brutal regime. But it has happened more quickly than almost anyone predicted. ...

 

Our relationship with the United States began in 2014, after the battle of Kobani, when our men and women in uniform astonished the world with their heroic defence against Islamic State jihadists....

 

By denying the diversity of Islamic thought and speaking only of a dichotomy featuring true Muslims on one side and ISIS on the other, politicians and government officials homogenize Islam...

But new political geometries are possible in France, and the ascent of Altrad to the mayoralty of France’s seventh largest (and fast growing) city might itself be indicative of a new France....

The artificial Shia-Sunni faultline was created for two reasons — to scare the oil rich Gulf Cooperation Council with Iran’s rise and sell them arms and, second, to break the morale of Iran, the only country in West Asia which stands up for Palestinian rights, much to Israel’s annoyance.…

Following the US announcement, there were already reports of a movement of regime and Russian forces toward the city of Manbij. An unseemly race for the spoils between the regime/Russians/Iranians and the Turks/Jihadis appears set to start....

 

For Abu Dhabi, the demonization of Islamism is based on a deeply-rooted fear within the centre of power around MbZ—a fear of civil societal activism legitimized not by secular power but religious belief….

 Chiefly, the US is not in the region for oil, having enough and more shale which rescued the markets from the September 14 catastrophe of halved Saudi production. ...

 

Expedient as it was, his choice of the Kurds to fight IS put America at odds with Turkey. Mr Trump has merely accelerated an inevitable conflict. In typically impetuous fashion, though, he does not seem to have thought about what comes next....
