Islam and the West

Netanyahu Feels at Home at the White House
Daniel Gordis

That was more than a rhetorical opportunity. For Mr. Netanyahu and many Israelis, Palestinian denial of that legitimacy is the real reason for the failure of the peace process. From the White House and in the presence of a sympathetic president, the prime minister was finally able to assert that the Palestinian commitment to a two-state solution has long been a hoax, that the Palestinians have employed two narratives, one for international consumption and another for Palestinians at home....

 

Trump Needs to Rethink Terror Policies
Ivan Eland

And a “safe zone” created in Syria will not make up for it. The underlying message is “keep those undesirable Muslims over there, not accept them here.” Besides, a safe zone may require the United States to get sucked into escalating the type of brushfire war that Trump, in the campaign, said he wanted to avoid. Setting up a safe zone could very well require the insertion of U.S. ground forces and the tangle of American air forces with those of nuclear-armed Russia....

 

White Terrorism Not As Bad a Muslim Terrorism
Leonard Pitts Jr

Terrorism is defined as the unlawful use of violence to coerce or intimidate a government or a people in furtherance of some social or political cause. But for Rep. Duffy and others that seems to apply only to swarthy individuals with difficult names. When white people do it, it is less likely to be perceived — or reported by news media — as terrorism. This double standard reflects not simply America’s xenophobia, but also America’s maddening insistence upon the blamelessness, the fundamental innocence, of whiteness...

 

Will Trump’s Stern Views On Muslim Brotherhood Translate into Action?
Mohammed Salah

It is worth noting that these are the same sources that were hard-pressed during the eight years of Obama’s terms toward the alterations of Arab regimes granting the Islamists opportunities to rule. This pushed the gusty winds of Arab Spring to run havoc in the region resulting in total chaos and the Arab people are paying exorbitant price for nothing but an overall cataclysm and destruction. They are the people who ignited the spark that started an inferno and engulfed the Arab region.....

 

President Trump’s Pronouncements — A Wakeup Call for Muslims?
Hossein Askari

In the end, to be effective, US policies must appeal to the people of the region, not just to their rulers. There is one inescapable fact. Islam is the fastest growing religion. Today it has 1.7 billion adherents. The US has no choice but to forge better relations. Words matter, as do actions. Provocative rhetoric will only alienate. Blind support of Muslim dictators who do Washington’s bidding will one day blow up in America’s face....

 

No Time to Hide For US Muslims
Aijaz Zaka Syed

With Trump’s powerful Jewish son-in-law and architect of his campaign Jared Kushner now being his key adviser and the top administration positions being manned by you know who, no administration in history has been closer to Israel. The excessive influence of the Lobby also manifests itself in various appointments and pronouncements of the administration, including the disastrous decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem....

 

Why Can't Muslims Talk About The Muslim Ban On US TV?
Khaled A Beydoun

While conservative media outlets are wed to featuring specific Muslim personalities to propagate a caricature, carry forward a stereotype, or showcase a native informant bent on slandering the faith, liberal media outlets call on a small handful of Muslim voices to meet what seems to be a minimal quota while relying on white males to carry the intellectual and analytical load....

Why the United States Should Be As Circumspect As the British about the Muslim Brotherhood
Lorenzo Vidino

The real nature of the movement is obviously much more complex than these caricatured views, even though both, despite their symmetrical difference, do capture parts of its soul. It is therefore unsurprising that the United States, like all Western countries, has never adopted a consistent assessment, let alone policy, toward the Brotherhood; over time, Washington has swung erratically from embrace to rejection and back...

 

If You Thought Trump's Travel Ban Was Bad, What He Has Planned Next For American Muslims Could Be Devastating
Shenaz Kermalli

Imagine your morale if you were a Muslim living in America right now. What could be worse than having a president who has launched a calculated assault against your community? How about the signing of a new bill that has the power to intimidate, silence, and imprison Muslims for being politically engaged?...

 

In Quranic terms, therefore every action- A’mal is required to be qualified as Saleh- to produce goodly and beneficial reaction. There is nothing in it extraordinary and nothing religious, just a statement of universal truism. However it is generally assumed that a nation’s core values are of qualified goodly nature and that they are the ones which makes it ‘assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station’ (American Declaration of Independence) which then defines the nation’s place in the world.....

Silence of the Sheikhs Is Reflective Of the Subservience of the Gulf Monarchs to the US
Bhopinder Singh

So, regime-survival instincts, a possible sectarian angle, as all the Shia-ruled nations like Iran, Iraq and Syria are among the banned nations, along with the plausible theory of protecting commercial interests of the Trump corporate empire in the Gulf Sheikhdoms, has ensured a convenient quid pro quo, wherein maintaining ostensible ‘normalcy’ and acceptance is in the mutual interest of both the US and the Gulf Sheikdoms....

All of Islam Isn’t the Enemy
New York Times Editorial

Such an order, now under consideration, would be seen by many Muslims as another attempt to vilify adherents of Islam. It appears to be part of a mission by the president and his closest advisers to heighten fears by promoting a dangerously exaggerated vision of an America under siege by what they call radical Islam. The struggle against extremism is complex...

In reality, Trump and his followers have a ‘grudge’ against a system that is mortgaging their dream; however, doing a wrong diagnosis presupposes a wrong prescription. No one prefers the other man’s land to his home if he could have his peace. But when out of greed the world is rendered a blazing bunch, everyone including those who started the fire must feel the heat. Let America, nay the West stop destroying others so that its citizens can at least have their peace....

 

Radical Islamic Terrorism Poses a Very Small Threat to America

And here is the reality on the War On Reality. Trump’s administration is going to craft insane public policies to target “radical Islamic terrorism,” which is a waste of money. It will amount to excessive public spending on a make-believe threat. The billions and perhaps trillions of dollars that his administration will pump into “anti-Islamic terrorism” campaigns is, as the facts show, unwarranted....

How Trump Can Defeat ISIS
Sharmine Narwani

Will the decisive CEO in him emerge, or are we stuck with an insecure, inexperienced politician who cleaves to the guidance of trusted old hands who lack new ideas? Because here’s the rub. The Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, Lebanese, and Russians are defeating ISIS and al-Qaeda anyway, with or without the United States.....

 

All Eyes on the American Muslim Community
Zan Azlee

The mosque filled up quick after the azan and the congregation came out in full force. Aside from that, there were a group of USC students who dropped by the mosque to stand in solidarity with the Muslims in the community. The gist of the sermon that Friday was more of wanting to assure the congregation that everything is okay and that they should not be nervous or feel threatened, that this country is as much theirs as it is any other American, and that they should all come together....

 

We Finally Have The Dar-ul-Harb Versus Dar-ul-Islam Showdown That We’ve Been Preparing For Ages
Kunwar Khuldune Shahid

The West finally is bearing resemblance to what we have always claimed it was: a group organised against Islam, with its only goal being obliteration of Muslims. We now have bona fide anti-Muslim bigots taking over the reins, setting the stage. We finally have the Dar-ul-Harb versus Dar-ul-Islam showdown that we’ve been preparing for ages...

Muslims Reflect On Racism, Islamophobia and Safety in Canada
Arti Patel

As issues of safety rise to the forefront, Muslim Canadians are not only more aware of how they feel on Canadian soil, but they stress one act of violence is not reflective of what it means to be a follower of Islam. "Please do not draw conclusions on the majority...

 

The Darker Brotherhood of Terror: If This Dark Tide Will Ever Recede
Zarrar Khuhro

The truth is that white right-wing extremists and their Muslim counterparts are parts of the same whole, a yin and yang of hate. Every terror attack by Muslim extremists emboldens and swells the ranks of Breivik’s and Bissonnette’s comrades, and as the Western world lurches to the right, enacting measures like the immigration ban, no one is happier than Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Ayman al-Zawahiri....

 

Islamophobic with A Smile—The Quebec Case
Mustapha Marrouchi

When the Indian-Canadian and later Indian-American novelist Bharati Mukherjee complained in the 1970s that Canada was more racist than America, many people thought she was harsh in her reading of the Canadian society. Only a handful of people told her that she was right. I personally think she was dead right. I can testify to her anguish in that I have lived in Canada and indeed experienced first-hand racism....

Ivanka, mom to mom, citizen to citizen, me (Reform Jew) to you (Modern Orthodox Jew), I am writing today to ask for a sign. Send me a sign that you are not, in fact, indifferent. That when you see a photo of a dead Syrian toddler washed up on a Greek beach you share my visceral understanding: He could be my child. That you subscribe to the Talmud’s teaching “[S]he who saves one life, saves the world,” along with Hillel’s question you tweeted in September: “If not me, who? If not now, when?”.....

 

Trump’s Decisions, Operation Decisive Storm to End Mullahs’ Dream
Jerry Maher

Trump’s recent tweets about Iran confused the latter as it is unaware what these stances will lead do and whether these tweets are nothing but mere statements or will they lead to military decisions and operations to confront Iran’s intervention in Syria, Yemen and Iraq and its provocation of countries in the region, particularly the Arab Gulf which the Trump administration views as a strategic ally.....

 

If We Divide People beyond Our Borders, We Divide Ourselves
Angelina Jolie

The lesson of the years we have spent fighting terrorism since September 11 is that every time we depart from our values we worsen the very problem we are trying to contain. We must never allow our values to become the collateral damage of a search for greater security. Shutting our door to refugees or discriminating among them is not our way, and does not make us safer. Acting out of fear is not our way. Targeting the weakest does not show strength....

 

Trump Has No Idea What a Syrian Refugee Camp Is Like
Jacob Plitman

Refugees brave incredible risks to save themselves and their families, and in the worst cases their situation resembles imprisonment for nothing other than their ethnicity, national origin or citizenship. As Jews we must take this personally.  Imagine if you heard that the American government had stalled evacuations from the German DP camps because Jews are dangerous and needed "extreme vetting.".....

 

September 11 Families: Don't Use Our Loved Ones to Turn Away Refugees
Carol Kuruvilla

“Don’t use our loved ones, and especially my mother, to turn away refugees,” McGovern said during a press conference call arranged by the group. “This is not about protecting Americans. This is about bigotry. I for one am really tired of the exploitation of 9/11 for agendas that have nothing to do with our loved ones.”....
