To be sure, IS in its present reiteration, was not created by Saudi Arabia; it was forged in the wake of the US toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003 by among others the disbandment of Saddam Hussein's army, whose senior officers were mostly Sunnis who already had Islamist networks; the insurgency and civil war between Iraqi Shias and Sunnis that continues to this day; and the morphing of Al-Qaeda in Iraq into ISIS, which was in turn energised by civil strife in Syria and evolved into IS.

Call Islamic Terrorism by Its Name
Rudolph W. Giuliani

...We must encourage Muslim leaders to show the world that Islamic terrorists represent an antiquated and inhumane interpretation of Islam. These leaders need to loudly and dramatically speak for the hundreds of millions of Muslims who worship a peaceful, merciful and loving God. All Americans, in particular those in the media, can do their part by encouraging those Muslim leaders who come forward with a positive message about modern Islam.

The Politics of Terrorism
Abu Afsarul Haider

Terrorists represent only a minuscule faction of any group. The so-called IS terrorists and their affiliated groups take satisfaction in sacrificing their own lives in their belief that they are doing a glorious job (as if the heaven has been kept reserved for killers). The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of these young fighters, who happen to have Muslim names or ascribe themselves to the Muslim faith, have never read the Qur'an in its proper context. ...

 

Bombing Hasn't Worked. Bombing Won't Work. And yet, We Bomb
Gary Younge

...The West can’t bomb everywhere. And wherever it does bomb, it kills and injures large numbers of civilians. These civilian casualties, in their turn, stoke resentment and outrage, not least in the Muslim communities from which jihadis draw their recruits. Since 9/11, the West’s military interventions have created far more terrorists than they have killed, and have generally made things worse, not better.

 
So, Just How Islamic Is ISIS?
Gabriel Said Reynolds

So, Just How Islamic Is ISIS?
Gabriel Said Reynolds

To many outside observers, however — not least of whom are Muslim observers — ISIS does not represent Islam. To make this point, more and more commentators have begun to refer to the movement by its Arabic acronym — Daesh — or as the “so-called” Islamic state. On social media it is not uncommon to find activists speak of the “UnIslamic State” and its “pseudo-caliph.”

 

Why Can’t We Talk About Islam Honestly?
David Harsanyi

...Islam is not the same as Catholicism or Judaism—or Lutheranism or Calvinism or Buddhism or atheism, for that matter. Blowing past this troublesome little fact might be helpful when smearing Republicans, but this moral equivalence doesn’t change reality. Whether Americans were anti-Semites or wary of immigration or just suspicious of Nazi infiltrators in the late 1930s, the two groups you’re talking about embrace wholly different sets of values.

'Muslim Extremists' Is a Legitimizing Term for Terrorists
Franklyn Odhiambo

Islam is not a monolith and the fact that ISIS exploits superficial religious teachings of Islam does not make their motivation Islamic in any way. There is little policy substance to be found in propagating this narrative on their behalf; it does more harm to the innocent civilians caught in the middle. The intention to excuse imperialist policy that created, aided, and abetted terrorism in the Middle East and Africa cannot morph into a selective labeling without affecting innocent adherents of Islam.

You Won’t Win a War Against Isis If You Don’t Know What The Peace Looks Like
Giles Fraser

We wouldn’t bomb the suburbs of Brussels to eliminate the Isis cells stationed there. So why bomb Syrian towns when there are so many innocent people living there too? A few years ago, Cameron tried to persuade us to go to war against Bashar al-Assad because he was dropping barrel bombs on his own people. Now it is us who are proposing to do something similar, perhaps to the very same cities. ...

'Sting in the Tail': Islam and the Politicisation of Religion
Milad Milani

The issue is not about the religion of Islam, but the politics of "Islam." The recent Paris attacks and the subsequent French air strikes reaffirm what must be an obvious truth: both religion and democracy "can inspire and justify not only the best but also the worst of human behaviour."

 

Saudi Funding Fans Ultra-Conservative Islam in India; the Political, Ideological Response to It Remains Meek
Sunil Raman

Flirtation with Saudi Arabia saw the rise of fancy mosques across the continent where many clerics preached a return to “pure Islamic ideals” as espoused in the Quran. Puritanical Wahhabi ideology was and continues to be propagated from many of these mosques across the world, where clerics are not only sowing seeds of hatred against liberal democracies but also against Shia Muslims.

 

Beirut, Also the Site of Deadly Attacks, Feels Forgotten
Anne Barnard

“Now imagine all that happening without global sympathy for innocent lost lives, with no special media updates by the minute, and without the support of every world leader condemning the violence,” she wrote on Facebook. Finally, she said, ask yourself what it would be like to have to explain to your child why an attack in “another pretty city like yours” got worldwide attention and your own did not.....

 

As discussed above, East Jerusalem will be absorbed and “managed” by Israel until the Palestinians are subdued, compelled to flee or migrate to some other country or adjust to their fate in Israel. It cannot be ruled out that many of the refugees from Syria now seeking asylum in Europe, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will not return to Syria. This will leave a lot of empty space and work opportunities for displaced Palestinians. It might be that Europe, the US and international organizations will be happy to supply aid to settle Palestinians in the barren lands of Syria.....

 

Hinduism and Islam - Mingling Of the Two Oceans: Seminal Contribution of Dara Shikoh
Asghar Ali Engineer

In all these 20 sections in Majma`ul Bahrayn Dara Shikoh finds similarities between both Hindu and Islamic (particularly Sufi) traditions. The fanatics and fundamentalists in both the traditions denounce each other and try to prove the truth of their own religion. In such circumstances it is highly necessary to popularise writings of persons like Dara Shikoh who uphold the truth of all religious traditions. The Sufi Islam has been a bridge between Hindus and Muslims in India. The very fundamental doctrine of Sufism has been Sulh-I-Kula i.e. peace with all…..

Appeasing Oppressive Islamists in Turkey
Abdullah Bozkurt

Turkey's Islamist rulers have locked themselves in a vicious cycle in which they can now only rely on repressive measures such as abuse of the criminal justice system and police crackdowns on the right to dissent and the right to freedom of expression, fuelling more outrage and resentment towards the government, which in turn finds itself in a desperate attempt to resort to more brute force....

 

Blaming Muslims for the Holocaust

It would appear that the Palestinian now is the latest fiction being cast as the new ‘fact’ that perpetrated the Jewish Holocaust. Nothing can be farther from the truth. The Documents on German Foreign Policy 1918-1945, (Series D, Vol. XIII, London, 1964, pp.881 ff), include an official transcript of the Hitler-Husseini meeting of November 28, 1941. According to the transcript, it was not Mufti al-Husseini but Hitler himself who resolved that he “would carry on the battle to the total destruction of the Judeo-Communist Empire in Europe”....
