Islam and Politics

The Sudeten Parallel
Khaled Ahmed

The communal situation did not improve after the Congress government came to power after the 1937 election, and the Muslims were more and more inclined to favour the League. The League clearly saw its rival at cross-purposes with the British government on Hitler and his exploitation of the Sudeten issue....

 

Again, there is nothing wrong with that either. But invoking this sacred reason for justifying military action for worldly political ambitions of another country certainly sounds like a bit of a moral problem....

 

Poisoned Gifts and Unmet Expectations
Ayaz Amir

The Saudis have suddenly become the guardians of order and legitimacy, denouncing the Houthis as rebels. Did anyone in the Arab world much remember legitimacy when British and French fighter planes were bombing Muammar Qaddafi’s forces and Qatar and Kuwait among others were helping arm and fund the anti-Qaddafi rebels? Qaddafi was taken care of but Libya, a stable country before, was plunged into chaos....

 

Turkey’s Islamists Betrayed Uyghurs, Damaged Ties with China
Abdullah Bozkurt

The Turkish government has not only turned a blind eye to the transfer of a large number of Uyghurs to Syria to join the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and other al-Qaeda-affiliated and splinter groups but evidence also suggests Ankara has in fact encouraged the operation of such militant recruitment network as well....

 

Under the Shadow of ‘Terror Talk’
Nuray Mert

The accusation was that they supported terrorists and terrorism by printing photos of the terrorists who took Kiraz. The campaign then it turned to other media outlets and opposition parties, who allegedly declined to call the terrorists, “terrorists,” using the term “militants” instead.

 
Some odd Things
Irfan Husain

Some odd Things
Irfan Husain

The biggest winner in this conflict is Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, long considered the deadliest affiliate of the Al Qaeda franchise. AQAP has looted government arsenals of millions of dollars worth of American arms, and has expanded the territory under its control....

 

Garden of Eden and Forbidden Fruit
Samson Simon Sharaf

Turks will neither forget that North Yemen inherited the Ottoman Empire nor the tragic destruction of the holy sites constructed by Turks in Mecca and Medina destroyed by the house of Saud. These countries will covertly support any group including Houthis that rise against Saudi interests....

 

US-Iran nuclear deal, a possible game changer in Middle East, despite Saudi invasion of Yemen
Imtiaz Gul

The entire Middle East, from Israel to Yemen and from Iraq and Iran, finds itself in an unprecedented turmoil. ...Top officials from Pakistan and Turkey are visibly trying to contain the consequences of the Saudi invasion of Yemen. Private entities such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Afghanistan’s Hizb-e-Islami are vowing to shore up Saudi defence against what they see as Iranian expansionist designs...

 

Return of the Prodigal
Najam Sethi

The PMLN is also now free to concentrate on a critical national issue that has cropped up: how to deal with the Saudi demand for air and land forces and munitions from Pakistan to fight the Houthi rebels in the Yemeni civil war....

 

How Turkey’s Islamist Gov’t Helped Al-Qaeda and ISIL
Abdullah Bozkurt

More evidence is emerging that implicates senior officials in Turkey's political Islamist government of aiding and abetting radical groups, including al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)....

 

The Revolution Lives!
David Brooks

The audience chanted “Death to America” during his speech, and Khamenei himself dismissed America’s “devilish” intentions. When a radical religious leader uses a word like “devilish,” he’s not using it the way it’s used in a chocolate-cake commercial. He means he thinks the United States is the embodiment of evil....

 

The Cost of Saudi Esteem
Saeed Naqvi

With this intent, the restless but rich Saudis were allowed to lead the attack on the poorest country in the Arab world. This one fact – along with so many others – will plague the Saudis. The monarchies, Sheikhdoms and dictatorships in the region have not yet digested the cardinal truth: the Arab Spring was an expression of popular resentment with Arab rulers.

 

Mainstreaming Muslims: This Community Lags Behind in Social Indicators and Needs Reservations
Tanweer Alam

Reservation has always been an important issue in Indian politics. Often it is also seen as a tool for vote bank politics. Any talk of extending the benefit of reservation to minorities, especially Muslims, gets politicised and becomes a polarising issue. The net result: Muslims have been effectively kept out of it....

The Saudis’ Friends should have spoken up Earlier
Ayaz Amir

Pakistan’s involvement in Afghanistan should be read as a cautionary tale. Pakistan suffered the consequences. The Saudi monarchy has to live in a dream-world to think that if the Yemen conflict lengthens Saudi Arabia will remain immune from the fallout....

 

Even before the present Hudud impasse, we already witnessed fissures among the three component parties in PR. How then can we expect them to work with a common resolve....

 

Religion, Politics and Society: A Birds Eye View
Ram Puniyani

With the Twin Tower, 9/11, attack, the US media coined the word “Islamic terrorism’, dragging Islam into the murky world of terrorist violence. Here after ‘Islam, Muslims are the cause of terrorist violence’ has been a part of social understating all over. The deviant tendencies with Islam, Political Islam have done enough to deepen this understanding to the detriment of Muslims all over....

The Iran Deal and Turkish Politics
Nuray Mert

The idea of “moderate Islamic forces,” which were supposed to lead democratisation in Arab Spring countries, failed on two fronts; they could neither enforce good governance nor manage to be an alternative to rising Islamic radicalism....

 

The Delicate Path Ahead on Iran
David Ignatius

Obama’s challenge is that the Sunni nations have been suffering a kind of vertigo since the Arab revolutions of 2011, doubting themselves and the United States even as they reel from Iran’s proxy wars....

 
Tehran’s Massive Mistake in Yemen
Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi

Tehran’s Massive Mistake in Yemen
Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi

Arabs were in dire need of a significant event to restore their self-confidence and allow them to determine their own fate, particularly after the Houthis rejected the political overtures of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the United Nations. War is part of politics, but should always be a last resort....

 

The Saudi Predicament
Najam Sethi

The people, opposition parties and media of Pakistan are solidly and openly against any direct Pakistani military involvement in the Middle-Eastern crisis. But the government and military establishment are prevaricating and double-speaking....

 

Four Years after NATO-Backed Ouster of Gaddafi, Libya is a Failed State
Daniel Wagner

Haftar was an early Gaddafi loyalist, and played an important role as one of the “Free Officers” in the 1969 revolution that toppled the monarchy led by King Idris al-Sanusi. Gaddafi later said that Haftar “was my son… and I was like his spiritual father.” It was the start of a military career in which Haftar fought on many different sides.....

Hate Speech Provokes Violence in Turkey
Lale Kemal

People from every walk of life -- either occupying senior positions within the state apparatus or elected governments, politicians, academics, journalists or ordinary citizens -- will see no problem in using insulting and discriminatory words against the others, sometimes labelling them traitors....

 

Terror’s Election Calculation
Mumtazer Turkone

This is a pretty grave terrorist incident that incited widespread anger. The question people have raised in response to this attack that took place two months before an election is on the causality I cited above....

 

Saudi Arabia and Yemen: The Test for a New Monarch

Sunni states no doubt want to draw a line against further encroachment by Iran, which exerts strong influence in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. But Saudi Arabia, which treats the Arabian Peninsula as its backyard, is particularly sensitive about trouble in Yemen....

 

Saudi-Israeli Anti-Iran Nexus
Pervez Hoodbhoy

Saudi Arabia, for its own reasons, is even more gung-ho. While expressing token opposition to Israel’s stash of nuclear weapons, it has long concentrated its fire on Iran’s nuclear programme. Thanks to WikiLeaks, it is now well known that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia had repeatedly urged the US to destroy Iran’s nuclear programme and launch military strikes to “cut off the head of the snake”…..
