Islam and the West

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....

 

In Saudi Arabia the causal sequence was instant. Zealots attacked the spiritual mosque in Makkah, really hoping no question to light the fuse for an Iran design requisition. Royals in Riyadh ended up being scared and also been afraid a comparable destiny as that of the Shah...

The US’ decision to recognize Israel’s illegal annexation of the Syrian Golan Heights violated, for the first time, an international post-Second World War understanding that it is unacceptable to acquire land by war....

 

A baboon-faced thug with hair dyed orange threatens — and then repeats his threat — to destroy the world’s precious architectural heritage....

The primary sites of Shii veneration are the shrines of the Shii imams and their offspring, which are important pilgrimage destinations, especially during the holy months of Ramadan and Muharram....

 

Is Iran a brutal, murderous, repressive regime that tramples the rights of women and minorities? No doubt. But so is Saudi Arabia, and we have managed to work with that regime. Iran is just as critical to the long-term stability of the region....

 

If Raisi could argue in 2017 that the nuclear deal had not improved life for Iranians, how much easier will it be to advance that same argument in 2021?...

 

Iran almost certainly will want to respond in some lethal form, whether directly or through its powerful network of proxies in the region. U.S. embassies and military bases—and thousands of American personnel across the Middle East and South Asia, and potentially beyond—were instantly vulnerable.....

 

Iran’s most storied and feared commander, stepped off a plane from Syria or Lebanon at Baghdad’s international airport. He climbed into a waiting convoy alongside the leader of an allied militia—a seeming lapse in security, the two men travelling together, that suggests the general felt safe in Iraq. Minutes later he was dead....

 

But they had made their point. Sixteen years after America invaded Iraq with the hope of installing a friendly government; it can barely keep its own embassy safe....

 

Historical butchery notwithstanding, the irony of being American, any American, is all of us are from somewhere else originally. All of us are immigrants, but the difference seems to be in the color of our skins….

 

The Islamic countries gained their independence after the colonials were ousted or forced to leave. Lately, we stand witness to how Islamic countries have become birthplaces of rich leaders....

 

In the years before the war, European powers had gobbled up nearly half a million square miles of former Ottoman territory. Then, during the war, an Arab revolt stoked by the British had removed large portions of what we would now call the Middle East....

 

Early attempts to get into the festive spirit were hopeless and hilarious- crackers made from newspapers, chicken legs and potatoes smothered with chilli and my little mum Jena, who sipped too much cheap brandy which she said she was prescribed ‘for her blood pressure’. That was it. No tree, no presents, no parties....

They worry that foreign imams hinder integration and allow countries such as Turkey to exercise undue influence over Germany's nearly 5 million Muslims….

 

Karen Armstrong, a celebrated author on Islam and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), highlights that Islam does not see Christianity and Judaism as ‘others’ to go against, but as revealed religions from Allah....

Sadly today, a well-meaning West — including many sons and daughters of those who fought the Nazis — is propping up individuals and institutions that descended from the twisted hateful ideologies of the dark alliance between Nazis and Islamist supremacism....

 

As it happens, that war unfolded half a world away from the Greater Middle East and more than a century ago in the southernmost islands of the Philippines. Back then, American soldiers fought not the Taliban...

 

One of the strangest and most brutal terrorist groups in contemporary history that has killed thousands of innocent men and women and damaged tens of billions of dollars in regional countries, especially Syria and Iraq, was the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group....

 

The problems of mere contact between federal officials and domestic Islamists all seem rather benign alongside the enormous amounts of federal funding wending their way to Islamist organizations under Donald Trump's presidency....
