Islam and the West

Benchmarks could draw on 88 recommendations by a commission led by the late Kofi Annan and include targets for the restoration of full citizenship rights for Rohingya, freedom of movement, and free and unfettered access for aid groups, human rights monitors and the media. If Myanmar fails to show progress over a specified period of time, the U.S. government should consider additional sanctions. It’s one thing to question the effectiveness of the U.N. It’s another to stand by and watch another genocide unfold — and do nothing....

Why Did Trump, Bolton And Mattis Refuse To Listen To The Tape Of Jamal Khashoggi's Murder? Because Of Arabic?
Hamid Dabashi

It was good to see the man who had no qualms about dropping "the mother of all bombs" (MOAB) on Afghanistan or arming Saudi Arabia to the teeth to slaughter Yemenis had suddenly developed a gentle soul and felt he could not handle hearing the suffering of a single person being strangled....

 

When It Comes To Regionalism, Pakistan Witnesses US as A Major Power Share Holder in the Region With Regard To Post 9/11 Consequence
Reema Shaukat

Afghanistan has remained the hub of Taliban and the country is witnessing burgeoning activities of Taliban groups again for the past few years, which is surely very challenging for the government and security apparatus of Afghanistan. Nonetheless US in the past has often announced that it will soon finish its set-up from Afghanistan and leave the country but there are many impediments in exercising this policy....

 

Americans Continue To Want To Cut and Run from Afghanistan
Mosharraf Zaidi

Today, neither Zia nor Junejo is with us. Nor indeed are many of the key actors or defining conditions of the Geneva Accord that was supposed to have avoided the civil war of the early 1990s, and the Taliban regime that came after it. Fair reporting on Pakistan and US understanding of the country’s complexities and needs are also long dead. Little has survived since the 1980s and 1990s. But three things endure....

 

Peace At The Expense Of the Afghans Is Bound To Fail
Mohammad Taqi

Just like then, the Taleban today are in no hurry to cut a deal with an adversary who they perceive is about to cut and run. The Taleban smell blood - and a victory - but they are not yet rushing to the finish line. As a Taleban fighter once summarised: "The US has the watches, but we have all the time!" The US may have to pull out, but the Taleban have nowhere to go to. They are in it for a longer haul than anyone thinks....

 

Post-Khashoggi, How Long Can Saudi Arabia Retain Leverage Over The U.S.?
Stanly Johny

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has reportedly concluded that Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince, personally ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. The murder of the Saudi dissident journalist at the Kingdom’s Istanbul consulate on October 2 has already triggered a global outrage against MBS, as the Crown Prince is known. But U.S. President Donald Trump seems unfazed by both the findings of his spy agency as well as the mounting global outcry....

 

The Saudi Strategy for Dealing with the Outcry over Khashoggi’s Murder Is Clear: Hunker down and Weather the Storm
Richard N. Haass

A large part of the truth is undeniable: Khashoggi was murdered by individuals with close ties to the Saudi government and its de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (widely known as MBS). Weeks of official Saudi denials and lies only reinforced the conclusion – now also the reported judgment of the US Central Intelligence Agency – that the murder was premeditated and approved at the top....

 

US Should Remember Islamist Militants Are Playing the Long Game in Afghanistan
Husain Haqqani

The United States does not lose wars; it only loses interest. From America’s point of view, Afghanistan is a poor backwater that becomes strategically significant only when a hostile power controls it. The United States supported Afghans waging a holy war against the Soviets during the 1980s, only to walk away after the Soviet withdrawal and return after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. ...

 

Right-Wing Terror in America Is Real and Terrorists Are White, Not Muslim

The media has a long history of double standards when it comes to covering terrorism ― starting with how slow mainstream media is to label attacks by white perpetrators as “terrorism,” and quick to label them as such when attackers are perceived as non-white or “other” ― and specifically, Muslim. Part of problem is the complex nature of how officials choose to categorize attacks as terrorism....

America Finds Itself All Alone over Iran
Tarek Fatah

There is something rotten in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its serfdom Pakistan, but both the U.S. and Israel seem to be blind to this fact. Unfortunately, ordinary Iranians will be forced to pay the price of living under an Islamic dictatorship, the insecurity stemming from the threat of sanctions and a liberal-left that is in bed with Iran’s Islamists....

 

Weeks back this newspaper in an investigative article had already proved that Queen Elizabeth is the direct descendant of the Prophet of Islam. In another report, it was revealed that Prince Charles has secretly embraced Islam and has been living the life of a practicing Muslim. Now, there is specific report on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who is a retired American actress and became a member of the British royal family upon her marriage to Prince Harry is patronizing radical Islamic militancy....

 

Khashoggi’s Murder: America First Is Hurting America’s Interests In The Middle East

There are few angels in Arab palaces. But Khashoggi’s blood is a permanent stain on the crown prince. It is increasingly hard to imagine him being a stable and reliable monarch. The stories of disquiet among the Al Sauds are growing. King Salman would be wise to start sharing power more widely—starting with the appointment of a new crown prince....

Mr Trump Is Unaware Of the Ground Realities of Afghanistan
Asif Durrani

All of Afghanistan’s neighbours support the idea of reconciliation in Afghanistan which was also evident in the statements of these countries at the Moscow Conference on Afghanistan held on November 9. The sooner the US heads towards reconciliation without encouraging warlords, the sooner the tone for the future contours of a stable and prosperous Afghanistan will be set. And for that the American president has to be on top of his brief about Afghanistan. Right now, you don’t know anything about Afghanistan, Mr. Trump....

 

Immigrants Never Bring Up Terms like Jihad or Sharia, Which Many Westerners Fear Muslims Are Trying To Impose on Them
Akbar Ahmed

There is no doubt that Europe must find a holistic, humane, and long term policy for the thousands upon thousands of migrants that continue to seek  new lives for themselves and their families. Yet a crucial first step is to remember that these are human beings, a fact that is often missing from conversations about immigration. Listening to the stories of people like Ahmedu can help us do this....

Pakistan and the US: Pakistanis In Need Of Visas and Green Cards Cannot Play Offence
Rafia Zakaria

If the last decade of the US was the decade of wars waged abroad, this decade is looking increasingly to be one in which the US will be turned into a fortress whose inhabitants are ruled by an avowed white nationalist president...

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar Have Rekindled Hope for Muslim Americans across the US
Khaled A Beydoun

Two Muslim American women, one a daughter of a Palestinian refugee and the other a refugee herself, made history by becoming the first Muslim American congresswomen in American history. Their transformative feat cannot be timed any better, converging with a moment when Islamophobia has never been more intense in Washington and the collective morale of Muslim Americans in dire need of a glimpse of hope...

 

Islam and British Values: It’s a Ploy to Push a Wedge between Muslim and Non-Muslim Britons
Ifty Rafiq

Historically, Islam was never imposed on the natives of captured or conquered territories; they were free to continue practising their own religion and abide by their own religious laws. Not only this, Islamic teaching goes further in deeming it unlawful to desecrate non-Muslim places of worship – a distant cry from recent images of ISIS and the Taliban destroying ancient monuments....

Even a Casual Media Search Produces Far More White Perpetrators of Child Sexual Exploitation than the Muslim Grooming Gangs
Kenan Malik

Thanks to a series of high-profile court cases, the question of Asian and, specifically, Muslim grooming gangs has become an incendiary issue. Quilliam and its chairman, Maajid Nawaz, divide opinion. For some, they are a scourge on political correctness, bravely shining a light on dark corners of Muslim communities. For others, they give succour to bigots....

 

Muslims and Islamophobes Both Win in U.S Elections
Naaz Modan

Muslim-Americans and those who support us are walking a tightrope right now. We're more represented in a branch of government that has traditionally leaned against us, but the voters also gave renewed voice to those who spread hate and fear about us. There is a hard, long game yet to be played before the champion emerges.

 

U.S. Policy toward Iran and Saudi Arabia Resembles the 1991 Film Classic 'Thelma and Louise'
Thomas L. Friedman

To put it cinematically, Iran and Saudi Arabia did the full Thelma & Louise. But, this being the Middle East, they did it in separate cars. For instance, M.B.S. abducted the prime minister of Lebanon, Saad Hariri. But Iran’s Hezbollah murdered the former prime minister of Lebanon, Saad’s father, Rafik Hariri, to make sure he did not return to power. Meanwhile, Denmark just accused Iran of sending intelligence agents to assassinate an Iranian Arab opposition leader...

 

Muslim Ban:  The Democratic Takeover of the House Will Impact Many of Trump's Controversial Policies
Ray Hanania

The House has the power to issue subpoenas and initiate more investigations into a wide range of Trump controversies. Among the subpoenas could be a demand to force Trump to provide copies of his tax returns, which the president has so far refused to disclose....

 

It’s the Hate Directed toward Islam That Has Motivated the American Muslims to Enter the Political Arena
Wajahat Ali

For some Americans — those who support a travel ban, a wall along the Mexican border and increased restrictions on refugees, all while holding on to the ridiculous belief that the world’s 1.8 billion Muslim hate America, despite the fact that it’s home to nearly 3.5 million of us — that statement probably inspires fear. But it’s true: Nearly 100 Muslim political hopefuls have filed to run for elected office this year. Only a dozen or so ran in 2016....

Does Islamic Prophet Need Courts To Defend Him?
Mustafa Akyol

The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, made a controversial decision on Oct. 25 about an Austrian woman (publicly identified only as “E.S.”) who had publicly condemned Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, as a pedophile. For this, she was fined in 2011 by an Austrian court, which convicted her of violating a national law against “disparaging religion.” In return, she appealed to the European Court of Human Rights, arguing that her freedom of speech had been curtailed...

That is why it is important now, after the slaughter in the Tree of Life Congregation, to give some thought to the speeches, tweets and random thoughts of President Donald Trump, whose words, rather than calming the nation in this trying time, are further inflaming it.

 

The Western Media Almost Never Question This much Bigger Lie
Gwynne Dyer

The Saudis make a great fuss about the missiles that the Houthis occasionally launch at Saudi Arabian targets, in a pathetic retaliation for the intense Saudi air attacks they live under every day. Riyadh claims that the missiles must be Iranian, because the Yemenis are too primitive to handle that technology. This is more nonsense......
