Islam and Politics

Contrast Religious and Secular Regime Changes
Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

Mankind has grappled with spirituality since its days in the jungle. In its quest it evolved different religions over time. A profession of operatives came into being who then acted as guides and leaders. Later on in secular societies, active participation in some communal aspects of life such as politics took some importance. But in religious quarters importance is only given when called upon by these guides, and then it becomes a religious duty.....

Hezbollah al-Hejaz: A Story Not Yet Written
Hassan Al Mustafa

Hezbollah al-Hejaz is a name that surfaced again in August after the leader of its military wing, Ahmed al-Mughassil, was arrested in the Lebanese capital Beirut. Mughassil was handed over to Saudi authorities after some 19 years in hiding.

 

Israel Lights The Touchpaper At Al-Aqsa Again
Jonathan Cook

Israel refers to the Haram as the Temple Mount, because the ruins of two ancient Jewish temples supposedly lie underneath. As Israel has swung to the right politically and religiously, government and settler circles have been swept by an aggressive Jewish messianism.

 

Pakistanisation of Turkey
Imtiaz Gul

Will the Syrian crisis and two million refugees have the same impact on Turkey as the Afghan jihad and the refugee exodus from Afghanistan had on Pakistan? This question has started doing the rounds among Turk intellectuals and political analysts.

Israel's Right Defies Rabbinate Over Al-Aqsa
Mike Hanna

The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is in full view from the Mount of Olives opposite, and throughout the morning I watched small Palestinian parties gathering away from the tourists, looking down as group after group was escorted through the compound and shaking their heads.

 

The Kurds’ Democratic Experiment
Carne Ross

After the authority of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad collapsed at the start of the Syrian revolution in 2011, the Kurds took advantage of the vacuum to set up government without a state. There is no top-down authority, even within the military. One Y.P.G. commander gently corrected me when I addressed him as “general.”

 
Moderate Islam Is The Solution
Abdulrahman al-Rashed

Moderate Islam Is The Solution
Abdulrahman al-Rashed

Islam is being associated with the evil we witness around us. People in areas controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) are pushed to flee and seek refuge from this evil that has befallen them. Islam has been hijacked by an evil group that speaks in the name of Muslims and dictates its religious interpretations on them.

 

Responsible schooling, governance, international diplomacy, accountability and conscientious citizens are the demands of modern society. However, popular media despite its presence in every home, remains the most ignorant, irresponsible and manipulative aspect of modern life.

 

Political Ferment in the Muslim World

The world of Islam is not a homogenous place, not even in the way religion is practised in its many parts. To better comprehend the phenomenon of the rise of militant Islam in the Middle East and parts of South Asia, the Muslim world should be divided into several constituent parts.

A Saudi-American Reset

Saudi Arabia remains dismayed by the lack of American engagement on Syria. Riyadh is likely to intensify efforts to influence events in Syria, particularly as Iran and Russia step up their support for President Bashar al-Assad. As the United States seeks more Saudi support in the battle against the Islamic State, Saudi Arabia will argue that the brutality of the Assad dictatorship drives support for the terrorists. They will push for a strategy of confronting both simultaneously, however difficult that may be.

 

Reach Out to the Other Side
Husain Haqqani

Iran’s influence is visible in the events in Yemen and Bahrain and pro-Iranian groups now exist in virtually every Muslim country. Arab governments wonder what Iran might be able to do once the sanctions are over and its coffers are full. Contrary to assertions in the Western media, it is not a matter of some historic rivalry between Shia and Sunni Muslims…

Given its openness Pancasila provides an opportunity for Muslims to comprehend the ideology in Islamic ways. Muhammadiyah sees much compatibility between the Pancasila doctrine and Islamic values, such as deliberation (Musyawarah), moderation (Tawasuth) and justice (‘Adalah).  Despite being a human creation, Pancasila is not necessarily antithetical to the Koran’s divine values……

Elites Want More Refugees: Why?
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

In essence, elites generate one crisis after another as an inevitable outcome of their insane actions to perpetuate, consolidate and expand their control over the rest of us. If we are not sufficiently aware, we can become preoccupied in just dealing with one or more symptoms of their insanity. Elites want more refugees partly because it helps to distract us from analysing and resisting what they are doing overall......

They Are Refugees, Not Migrants

Germany's Response to the Migrant Crisis Heart-warming

The majority of the men, women and children trying to reach European shores have been portrayed as economic migrants in search of a better life. In a bid to incite nationalistic tendencies, the displaced persons have been compared to marauders posing a threat to the standard of living and social structure of a privileged European society. The choice in terminology and the rhetoric that follows suit is not wholly without consequence, both legal and otherwise.....
