Islam and the West

The Immigrants Deported to Death and Violence
John Cassidy

Although there has been a spike in the number of asylum seekers in recent months, the overall number of undocumented immigrants coming into the United States from Mexico and other Latin American countries is significantly lower than it was a decade ago. There is no “crisis” at the southern border, except the humanitarian one of Trump’s own making. Trump’s picture of the United States being swamped—or, in his words, “infested”—by Latino migrants is a fantasy that he concocted to whip up the racial fears and antipathies of his core supporters.....

 

United States Promoting Some Sort Of Reform Of Islam As A Tool Of Foreign Policy Is A Horrendous Idea
Mehdi Hasan

“Calling for an Islamic reformation has very little to do with what Muslims are or are not doing in terms of reform,” added Green. “It’s a distraction. As long as we focus on what Muslims need to be doing, we don’t need to do any self-examination of our own foreign policy and our role in the rise of violent extremism abroad.”....

 

Muslims Are Viewed Far Less Favourably Than Racial or Sexual Minorities in America
The Economist

Mr Trump’s political rise coincided with an increase in hate crimes against Muslims in the United States—though this trend could have been caused by factors other than the president’s rhetoric. According to figures from the FBI, racially-motivated incidents against Muslims doubled from 2014 to 2016....

 

From Hungary to France, far-right nationalists are winning elections or gaining new ground across Europe. Here is a quick primer on some of the populist leaders from across the continent, what they believe, and what they have done or want to do....

 

For The Palestinians, It Is a Politics of Human Sacrifice —To American Liberals
Jim Kavanagh

It’s past time for American progressives to clearly and unequivocally decide and declare which side they are on. It’s time for professedly humanitarian, egalitarian, pro-human rights, anti-racist, and free-speech progressives to express their support of the Palestinian struggle—on social media, in real-life conversation, and on the street. It’s time to firmly reject the hypocritical discourse of those who would have been belittling any expression of sorrow and outrage over Emmet Till, Chaney, Schwerner and Goodman, and the four black schoolgirls killed in Birmingham...

 

Training to Hate Muslims: Every Paper Target I Shot Was a Muslim, Every Bit of Hand-To-Hand Combat; It Was Other Soldiers Dressed Up Like Muslims
Steve Hendrix

Muslims, though, were a big deal. Seeing an attacker beneath every Niqab wasn’t just self-protection, it was training. “Every paper target I ever shot was a Muslim,” Buckley said. “Every bit of bayonet training or hand-to-hand combat, it was other soldiers dressed up like Muslims.” The hatred outlasted the uniform....

 

ISIS or ISIL Came To Be Called the ‘Islamic State’ In Western Media, Not Without Significance
Zafar Bangash

Regardless of the exact date of Osama’s death, once the Americans officially announced his removal from the scene, there was need for another bogeyman to continue the so-called war on terror. This is nothing but a war on Islam but this time Western think tanks and policy-makers came up with a more enduring strategy. When an individual dies or is killed, he is removed from the scene permanently. An organization is much more enduring and complicated, hence the idea of the “Islamic State.”....

 

Apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel after the Gaza Massacre
Dr Gideon Polya

The latest Israeli Gaza Massacre in which Apartheid Israeli soldiers shot and killed 116 unarmed Palestinian protesters and wounded 13,000, has divided the world into 2 camps, (1) the Good, those who have variously reacted with horror, condemnation and demands for action against the Israeli perpetrators, and (2) the Bad, those whose responses have been to support the perpetrators or have been otherwise deficient. Decent anti-racist people around the world have been galvanized by these latest Gaza Massacres to urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions....

 

As Palestinians Were Getting Killed In Gaza, World Leaders Switched To Their Usual Doublespeak
Andrew Mitrovicaby

Given this lethal equation, it’s Palestinians who have demonstrated remarkable resiliency, purpose and “restraint”. Indeed, “restraint” has never been part of the Israeli army’s lexicon. The countless dead and scarred Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank are an undeniable testament to that fact....

 

Britain Is Fully Quran-Compliant, and It Has Been Since the Elizabethan Era
Ed Husain

In all the agonising about Islamism, and what to do about it, it would be a mistake to forget a very useful fact: that Britain has a special relationship with Islam and has done for centuries. The friendship with Islam is unique....

 

Ramadan and Toronto: From 1927 till Date
Hassam Munir

One of the questions referred to something not too many Torontonians would have been familiar with at the time: “What is Ramadan?” The answer was given in fine print elsewhere on the same page: “Ninth month of the Mohammedan year”. [1] To Regip Assim—Toronto’s first known Muslim and, as far as we can tell, the only Muslim living in the city at the time—this answer may have come off as missing the point on the significance of Ramadan. The sacred month had started in mid-March in 1927,...

 

Geo-Legal, Geo-Political, Geo-Historical and Geo-Cultural Truth Upholds Al- Quds Belongs To Palestinians
Syed Qamar Afzal Rizvi

Nevertheless, Trump-Netanyahu designed political engineering or their sophistry to redefine the sovereignty of Jerusalem via US embassy shifting is a deceitful ploy that cannot defy the geo-legal, geo-political, geo-historical, and geo-cultural truth that upholds East Jerusalem (Al- Quds) belongs only to Palestinians.....

 

Can Palestinians Really Count On the UN to Conduct a Fair Investigation?
Eresh Omar Jamal

And when it comes to downplaying the sufferings of Palestinians, even the UN is not innocent—as one document published by WikiLeaks dated May 5, 2009 showed former UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon secretly working with Israel to undermine the UN's report on war crimes perpetrated in Gaza. With that in mind, can Palestinians really count on the UN to conduct a fair investigation into the recent carnage unleashed on them by the IDF, especially with powerful western nations always backing Israel...

 

Muslims Are Very Much Part of British Society, Urban or Rural

The vast majority of Britain’s 2.8m Muslims live in cities; half are in London, Birmingham and Bradford. By contrast, nobody described themselves as Muslim in 4,781 of the 11,000-odd parishes of England and Wales, at the last census. In a further 1,130 parishes, there was only one Muslim in the village. But small numbers have gradually spread across the country....

 

The Victims, Palestinians, Are Themselves the Culprits: This Is Exactly How the Palestinians Are Treated For 70 Years
Robert Fisk

Monstrous. Frightful. Wicked. It’s strange how the words just run out in the Middle East today. Sixty Palestinians dead. In one day. Two-thousand-four-hundred wounded, more than half by live fire. In one day. The figures are an outrage, a turning away from morality, a disgrace for any army to create. And we are supposed to believe that the Israeli army is one of “purity of arms”? ....

 

At Long Last, Hollywood Is Planning a Blockbuster Film in Which a Muslim, Ms Marvel, Will Not Be a Threat
Coco Khan

Believe it or not, many Muslim women have other interests outside the hijab. Some like books and jogging, others like Justin Bieber (we can only apologise for this). There are many other issues and pastimes that make up Muslim women’s experience; perhaps they are less useful in male-dominated culture wars, but they are real and should be heard....

 

Palestinians Appear, Simply and Almost Mysteriously, To ‘Have Died', Say American News Headlines
Moustafa Bayoumi

Over 70 years ago, George Orwell wrote that modern political language “is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable”. It saddens me to see how nothing has changed. And nothing will change until we demand more from the purveyors of today’s political language. Palestinians deserve better. We all deserve better. And no one should have to die more than once....

 

Improving On What Obama Started Would Have Greatly Advanced U.S. Interests
Thomas L. Friedman

What a shame. Just improving on what Obama started would have greatly advanced U.S. interests — a 25-year assurance, with intrusive inspections, that Iran could not suddenly build a bomb. And it would have left us arm in arm with our closest allies, rather than us now threatening to sanction their companies if they trade with Iran. But Trump wanted to crush both Obama and Iran, and so he trashed the whole deal...

 

Neo-Colonialist Arrangement of the World: Travelling around the Middle East has become a Kafkaesque Experience
Andre Vltchek

“And what if someone from an Arab country which does not recognize Israel, wants to come here, to Bethlehem? Like, a Lebanese pilgrim or just a tourist? Could he or she enter from Jordan?” The waiter weighed for a while whether to reply at all, but then had mercy on me: “West Bank… You know, it only appears on the maps as some sort of autonomous or independent territory. In reality, the borders and movement of the people have been fully controlled by the Israelis.”...

 

Your Majesty, Please Tell Erdogan ‘Enough’ When He Pops In For Tea
Ece Temelkuran

However, I am certain that you would remember the days when, as a princess in the Second World War, you had to become an army mechanic, and posed for pictures in uniform. You very well remember that the lack of integrity and ethical reaction to evil is far more dangerous than evil itself....

 
The West and Iran
Tewfick Aclimandos

The West and Iran
Tewfick Aclimandos

Washington will also not put pressure on it. Iran has secured access to the Mediterranean, and now it needs a long pause to consolidate its gains and to restructure its economy. Turkey could easily be placated with territorial gains. According to such commentators, the sooner these three major players realise that a Middle Eastern grand bargain on the lines of the Yalta Summit meeting at the end of the Second World War, the better things will be....

 

The first strikes a balance between Iran’s right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes as also the international community’s concern to ensure that its nuclear programme remains strictly peaceful. The second sentence contains implicit disapproval of the American decision and warns, again implicitly, against any strong military action. For India, the question will also be: can it rely on the U.S. to honour even its written word embodied in international agreements? ...

 

Iran's Aggression, Not Donald Trump's, Has Sundered the Nuclear Deal
Con Coughlin

Rather than pursue the aggressive, anti-western policies that have come to define the Islamic Republic since the 1979 revolution, the deal offered an opportunity for Tehran to change course, adopting a more positive mindset in its dealings with the outside world. Mr Obama certainly believed that to be the case, which may explain why he was minded to give the Iranians such a good deal, one that conveniently glossed over decades of deception over its nuclear activities....

 

There are other reasons to believe that a greater understanding of Islam is behind these attitude changes. There has been a global crisis in Islamic scholarship for many decades. British Muslims have been left to learn Islam from the cultural practices of their parents, or bits of sermons from imams of unknown qualifications. It should not be surprising, given the less liberal cultures of India and the Middle East, that that has led to illiberal attitudes here....

The Nuclear Deal Makes America Complicit In Iranian Crimes: Why Would The U.S. Want To Fund The Regime’s Imperialism?
Reuel Marc Gerecht

And Reagan certainly didn’t allow arms-control treaties to stand in the way of the larger mission. Neither should we. We can ratchet up a lot of economic pain for the Iranian regime. Rouhani made a lot of promises before he was elected president, promises that he could not keep. Broken promises and lost hope can provoke internal unrest....
