Human Rights And Violence: A Forbidden Love Story
Faisal Siddiqi

The paradoxical love-and-hate relationship between human rights and state violence and militarisation in Pakistan is based on contradictory desires. These are impossible desires to fulfil but contradictions with which both parties (ie human rights and state violence) can live with, as long as enough space is provided to the other to persist (eg the military can have its military courts but the superior courts will have supervisory jurisdiction over these).

How Much Can The Muslim Community Do Towards De-Radicalization?
Dr. Ameer Ali, New Age Islam

Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria are the most glaring and stinking swamps that are now breeding mosquitoes and, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Boko Haram, ISIS and many more extremist groups are the direct product of Western adventurism. Neither the U.S. nor NATO and not even UN are prepared to even mention this in its deliberations. Australia being a staunch ally of the U.S. is virtually behaving like a vassal state consenting to all what that superpower does internationally......

Sheikh Putin of Syria
Maxim Trudolyubov

Sheikh Putin of Syria
Maxim Trudolyubov

When your country launches a surprise air campaign in some faraway place, you might naturally ask questions about the goals, the costs and the consequences. But this, evidently, is not the Russian way. Ever since the Kremlin began its bombing campaign in Syria, I’ve been asking people here what they think about our foray into the war-torn mess of the Middle East, to little or no avail.

 

Blame It on Haj Amin Al-Husseini, The Mufti Of Jerusalem
Khaled Diab

When Benjamin Netanyahu repeated his claim that Haj Amin al-Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem from 1921 to 1937, was the actual evil mastermind behind the Nazi Holocaust and Adolf Hitler was some clueless anti-Semite who just wanted to "expel the Jews", I wondered what the Israeli premier's feverish mind would come up with next.

Israel’s Fascists Are Pushing Palestinians Towards A Third Intifada
Eyad Abu Shakra

Iraqis are not relaxed with the fact they reside in a fragmented country dominated by Tehran and “cherished” by Washington. The Libyans are not so sure about their future in the midst of internal division and feverish grabbing of religious extremism and regional and tribal loyalties despite the efforts of the U.N. envoy Bernardino Leon.

 

There are three political parties that can credibly claim to be national and which have a shot at supplying the next prime minister: the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, the Pakistan Peoples Party, and the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz). And there’s scarcely any ideological difference between them.

 

Closing Of The Muslim Mind Is A Global Development, Are We Seeing A Closing Of The Indian Mind, Too?
Khaled Ahmed

The closing of the Muslim mind is a global development. Muslim Arabs fleeing to Europe to escape carnage at the hands of fellow Muslims are hardly aware that in the fullness of time, they too might react to identity crises by radicalising. Are we going to see a closing of the Indian mind, too?

The Test Of Political Islam
Yasar Yakis

In Tunisia, Annahdha, the political party backed by the Muslim Brotherhood movement, which represents political Islam, won the first elections since the start of the Arab Spring on Oct. 23, 2011. It promised to practice moderate Islam and kept this promise to a great extent. After three years, Annahdha ceded power to a secular party, Nidaa Tounes, on Oct. 26, 2014. ...

Leaderless Palestinian Youth, Inspired by Social Media, Drive Rise in Violence in Israel
Jodi rudoren

The morning of the attack, Subhe Abu Khalifa did not get up for work, telling his mother he was too tired and his feet hurt. He had spent the night watching and rewatching footage of a Palestinian woman, who the Israeli police say stabbed a Jewish man in the back in Jerusalem’s Old City, being harassed and shot.

This October marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most heinous genocides of human history,whichtook place in a reactionary counter-revolution in the Indonesian Archipelago in1965. The executioners of this massacre were the military,mullahs and US imperialism, an unholy alliance to crush a communist upsurge that could have led to a socialist revolution in this large Muslim country.

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.
