Islam and the West

The 2016 Republican presidential primaries were a living nightmare for Muslim Americans. From start to finish, GOP candidates fell over one another to fan the flames of anti-Muslim bigotry, anti-Arab racism, and Islamophobic hysteria. ...

But the announcement last month that the German government was formulating a legal framework for the opening of three Turkish schools in the country provoked a minor political firestorm and a lot of cultural soul-searching....

One of the world's great religions, Christianity, split into Catholic and Protestant in the 16th century. Now Islam is having to contend with a sharpening split between Sunni and Shia....

 

Proposing that 350,000 Palestinian Arabs who live in the Galilee Triangle in northern Israel be stripped of their Israeli citizenship and moved into a Palestine state through a land swap. The ugly truth is that many would prefer to be second-class citizens inside Israel than live in the uncertainty of the proposed Palestinian state....

 

"Bluntly, how would you feel if you were told to keep track of known terrorists who have been released from prison to satisfy the politically correct assumptions of our justice system?"...

The plan effectively gave US endorsement to Israel’s maximalist position on the lines of the 1967 war. It bestows not only complete control but also comprehensive annexation of the Jordan Valley, integrating all of the settlement blocs of the West Bank, and all part of Jerusalem to Israel...

The Assad regime and its Russian allies are brutally attacking Idlib province in Syria, but the world has abandoned the Syrian people....

Tragically, the Arab world - and particularly the Gulf States - could credibly resist both Iranian imperialism and Zionist aggression if these regimes were willing to abandon autocracy and to empower their own people....

 

To begin, any plan that carves up the West Bank into siloed political spaces, walls and roads — driven by a Trump-Kushner desire to embrace the “reality” of where Jewish settlers have haphazardly settled around the West Bank — makes no sense to me....

 

US arrogance in declaring all of Jerusalem the capital of Israel has backfired on Trump's entire "vision", leaving Washington humiliated and its foolishly dubbed "deal of the century" barely alive....]

Israel does not have an interest in having the Palestinians give up on their dream of statehood and aspiring instead to becoming voting citizens of Israel. This would undermine the Zionist rationale for Israel as a Jewish and democratic state....

Rewind to 2002. The Arab League had just endorsed its land-for-peace initiative, and late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat was shouting “martyr, martyr, martyr” live on TV while under Israeli siege in his bedroom in Ramallah....

 

Then, as now, Israeli plans had the same aim: to confine as many Palestinians as possible on as little land as possible, while legalising Israel’s illegal settlements and depriving Palestinians their guaranteed right to return to their homeland...

 

The Christchurch mosque terrorist attack allegedly carried out by a self-declared violent, rightwing extremist changed the Muslim communities in Australia in ways that are hard to articulate....

 

In the absence of advocating policies with actual teeth, the Democratic critics of the Trump plan are not much better than the president. They are, not in words but in deeds, supporters of annexation and subjugation, too....

 

After all, both President Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are, in effect, facing job-threatening charges — Trump for obstruction of justice and abuse of power and Bibi, who was literally indicted on Tuesday, for fraud, bribery and breach of trust. They both had a huge need to change the subject and shore up their common base of right-wing Jews and evangelicals....

 

A two-state solution came about as the result of a rules-based world order, which Mr Trump detests because it is inimical to the raw power that he prefers to govern global affairs....

Ironies abound in this alliance: the nation that serves as the linchpin in the US struggle to bring an end to its longest war has also been accused of harbouring the same ins­urgents that American forces are fighting against....

 

Or will it be allowing their five-year-old nieces and nephews to die like animals and excluding their brothers and sisters from our holy resistance against capital punishment? “I know how terrorists are made”, a former head of Denmark’s State Security recently wrote. “I know how hate is created, and the desire for revenge. And that is exactly what we promote”...

There’s a famous scene from The Dark Knight in which the Joker gives a rare insight into why he does his disruptive, anarchic things. “I’m like a dog chasing cars,” he says, “I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one, you know, I just do … things.”...

 

Killing Mr. Suleimani, though, would mark a major escalation in the application of presidential authority, even if it might draw upon familiar legal justifications. Those powers were established, Mr. Anderson said, at a time when “the circumstances were not really the same geopolitically.”...

 

If Mohammed bin Salman or figures close to him really did hack the phone of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, it would be another nail in the coffin of the crown prince’s attempt to rebrand Saudi Arabia’s global image...

 

There will further escalation in regional tensions ignited by the precipitate, ill-judged murder by the US. Having no strategic vision for the region or clear next steps for peace, Trump has placed his friends, enemies and his own nation on the cusp of serious devastation....

 

If Iranian feminists who refuse to wear the Hijab are brave, their Western counterparts, who wear pink hats, have wretchedly abandoned them....

 

Not long ago, Iranian terror mastermind Qassem Soleimani was travelling around the Middle East with a sense of invincibility. And for good reason....
