Behind the deadly, Zionist-promoted, warmongering, and civil rights-abusing terror hysteria in US Alliance countries is the Awful Truth that deaths from Jihadi terrorism in these countries is negligible compared  to over 30 million Muslim deaths from violence or imposed deprivation in the 21st century US War on Muslims. In the 21st century there have been 1,615 non-terrorism Israeli deaths from homicide by Israelis, 164 Israeli deaths from terrorism in Israel....

 

Lessons for Pakistan from Trump’s America
Pervez Hoodbhoy

Perhaps someday we too will learn to respect people for what they are — humans — and fight for their rights also, not just our own. Perhaps an Ahmadi, Hindu, Christian or Parsi will be allowed to run for president of Pakistan or become the army chief. Until that time, in moral terms, we cannot really protest where Trump wants to take America.....

 

There’s a Market for Shared Experiences, as Hussain Haidry Shows
Samar Halarnkar

Last week, on the campaign trail in Uttar Pradesh, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanded cremation grounds (for Hindus), not just graveyards (for Muslims), electricity not just for Ramzan but Diwali, when his party president Amit Shah declared that only people of a certain community (Muslims, of course) were getting laptops, I could not help but think of Hussain Haidry....

President Trump, Will You Save the Jews?
Thomas L. Friedman

First you were tested by a rival — Russia — and utterly failed to appreciate the corrosive impact on our democracy of your indulgence of Russia’s hacking our election. And on Wednesday you’re going to be tested by a friend — Israel — and its prime minister, Bibi Netanyahu. Can you appreciate the corrosive impact on Israel’s democracy of what it’s now doing in the West Bank? I ask because you may be the last man standing between Israel and a complete, self-inflicted disaster for the Jewish state and the Jewish people....


 

Palestine Awareness Week is Bigger than Ever, But Activists Still Want to be Anonymous
Nisreen Eadeh

Many students are focusing on universal human rights, international law, and specific policies to get their messages across. Palestinians are systematically denied their rights to travel, live in their homes, access water, fair trials, and much more. What’s more, international community has stated many times that building homes on occupied land is a violation of international law. However, without an international governing body, Israel is allowed to persist its settlement building and deny Palestinians their human rights...

 

The French Election Is Now Marine Le Pen Vs a Collapsing French Establishment
Robert Tombs

France in its modern history has worn out five monarchies, five republics and 16 constitutions — and two of this year’s presidential hopefuls are demanding a 17th. Its people are still more ready than most to go into the streets. It was, and is, a country in which rhetoric and visions play a prominent part in politics....

 

Proxies, Politics and House Arrests: In Pakistan, a House Arrest Is More about Politics and Negotiation Rather Than Legality
Zoha Waseem

It is worth considering whether this recent clampdown on JuD can be connected to pressures and sanctions being exerted on Pakistan from the United States, as well as the change in military guard within our country, indicating a possible shift in policies pertaining to the likes of Hafiz Saeed, and attempts at civilising deteriorating relations with India since Pathankot. They remind us of the civil-military tussle in Pakistan not too long ago, with the former allegedly advising the latter to act on militants....

 

This 1967 Classroom Experiment Proved How Easy It Was For Americans to Become Nazis
Nina Renata Aron

In a radio interview, a former student describes the climate of fear that was quick to develop among students, “rumours on top of rumours.” Trust between students, even those who’d been friends, were quick to erode. The heavy emphasis on “unity” was undercut by the atmosphere of suspicion that Jones’s expectations had created....

 

India Is Yours If You Have Lost Most of Your Possessions
Turki Aldakhil

The Gulf region’s relation with India has multiple aspects that are related to geography, history, cultural influences and travels on both sides. Above all that, economy on both sides has governed a relationship which no other country could replicate. Our grandparents were right when they said: “India is yours if you have lost most of your possessions.” India is a country of partnership through drought and riches and the pleasant and the unpleasant. This is the ancient civilization called India....

 

The vital importance of the visit to the UAE was readily apparent in the crowd of dignitaries that were watching the event. Although I was unable to see the entire delegation - as I had found myself stuck behind a scrum of photographers and cameramen - I did manage to catch a glimpse of some of the UAE's most prominent figures, such as Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nayan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation....

 

As Its Friends Befriend India, Pakistan’s Ruling Elites Must Come To Terms With New Regional, Global Realities
Husain Haqqani

Pakistan’s ruling elite, especially its all-powerful military, tends to see other nations as close to India or as friends of Pakistan. The Pakistani narrative often ignores economics and sees international relations in binary terms, emphasising religion and ideology. Some Pakistani commentators have already started taking pot-shots at “fellow Muslims” embracing “Hindu India” at the expense of Pakistan. Ironically, UAE is not the first Gulf Arab Muslim country affirming friendship with India as chief guest at India’s Republic Day parade. Former Saudi King Abdullah was the chief guest at the 2006 parade and proudly declared India his “second home.”...

 

And if he doesn't, the enormous blowback won't merely affect him; it will keep America in the same horrific bind it's been in for a long, long time: war is money; war floats a basically bereft economy; war destroys lives; war kills hope; war keeps putting the lie to "America, the bastion of freedom for every person on Earth"...

 

India-UAE: Step Up Natural Partnership
Talmiz Ahmad

India and the UAE are natural business partners: While India is a global economic powerhouse; the UAE has a diversified economy and is a global centre for trade, logistical connections, tourism and finance. It is also the major supplier of oil to India, is an important trade partner and the premier destination for India’s exports....

Not Justice: Bombay HC’s Order In Mohsin Sheikh Case Rewrites Jurisprudence Of Provocation In Dangerous Ways
Faizan Mustafa

“The fault of the deceased was only that he belonged to another religion. I consider this factor in favour of the applicant/accused. Moreover, the applicants/accused do not have criminal record and it appears in the name of religion, they were provoked and have committed murder,” observed Justice Mridula Bhatkar in her six-page order while granting bail to three main accused in the killing of Mohsin Sheikh, an innocent young IT professional of Pune, who was returning after dinner on June 2, 2014 and was wearing what the judge has recorded as “pastel green colour shirt and had sported a beard”. With this order, India cannot anymore complain against the hate crimes committed against Indians in Australia and America....

Goodbye, Barack Hussein Obama: America's First 'Muslim President'
Wajahat Ali

Obama always made clear he was a Christian, but never distanced himself from Muslims in response to spurious rumours about his faith. His first major interview was given to Al-Arabiya in 2009. A few months after becoming president, he gave a speech at Cairo University, intended to repair and restart relations with Muslim-majority communities reeling from the reckless, unnecessary wars in Afghanistan and Iraq...

 
New Cold War in Afghanistan

New Cold War in Afghanistan
Musa Khan Jalalzai

The Unity Government is not lessoning to the Chinese and Russian leader that Taliban should be accommodated in the political set up to bolster the fight against the ISIS terrorist group. The United States and its allies are increasingly worried that any deepening of ties between Russia, China and their own Taliban group, their supply of modern weapons, and the deployment of their intelligence units across Afghanistan may cause further intensification of civil war in the country....

 

The Tragedy of Bangladesh
Kuldip Nayar

Bangladesh has to renew its ethos, the image of a secular democratic country. Organisations like the Jamaat-e-Islamia would drag it to fundamentalism. But that was not in the mind of Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rehman, father of the nation, who wanted to establish a country which would not discriminate against the minorities. Sheikh Hasina, to her credit, wants to follow his footprints. But she has become authoritarian but her action does not reflect that. This is the tragedy of Bangladesh....

 

Going Forward, India Needs Battle Pigs Not Elephants To Tame Pakistan

Europe's Lack of Strong Leadership Leaves It Vulnerable To Terrorism

Turkey, Russia and an Assassination: The Swirling Crises, Explained

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place at an art gallery in the Turkish capital where Mr. Karlov was speaking. The gunman, who was killed at the scene by security forces, shouted “God is great” in Arabic and later said in Turkish: “Don’t forget Aleppo. Don’t forget Syria.”....

Indian Strategic Communication Must Aim to Overcome Pakistan’s State of Delusion
Syed Ata Hasnain

Pakistani citizens continue to believe that India has not accepted the creation of Pakistan and is working towards dismembering it. That belief is often reinforced by strong Indian statements during strategic debates on the viability of weakening Pakistan. It is unfortunate that Pakistanis hardly read or believe in the writings of some of their own columnists, who profess that Pakistan’s obsession with attempting to weaken India and playing strategic games is weakening its own edifice....

 

The site today houses the Al Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site in Islam. Control over the site has been a persistent source of friction between Israel and the Palestinians, and has sparked violence between the two sides....
