We Need To Prevent Genocide of Rohingya Muslims -- Before It's Too Late
Emanuel Stoakes

...There is "strong evidence" that Myanmar has committed genocide against a largely Muslim minority known as the Rohingya, according to a recent report by a clinic of Yale Law School for Bangkok-based NGO Fortify Rights. Other reports andexperts have warned that genocide may be on the horizon.

 

From Tunisia, a Voice of Hope in The Muslim World
Fareed Zakaria

Tunisia’s success story is not quite the fairy tale that is sometimes recounted. The Islamists pushed for greater influence of Islamic law, they were reluctant to compromise and left power only because they thought the country would explode if they didn’t. Key elements of the old guard have returned in force, and the place remains fragile, with the economy under severe pressure.

Russo-Farsi Word Game in Syria!

Russo-Farsi Word Game in Syria!
Dr. Khaled M. Batarfi

For Russians and Iranians, there is no option but to keep Bashar Al-Assad as president, and his regime as the government. He is the one and only who would give his country away to them. If he is gone, then there is no guarantee that the next president would not order them out.

The Middle East's Century to Come
Khaled Diab

A century on, nothing has changed and everything has changed. As these 100 years of dreams and nightmares, of illusion and disillusion, with a few measures of delusion, reach their dissolution point, what does the next century hold in store for the region?

 

Myanmar’s Disenfranchised Rohingya
U Shwe Maung

A central issue has been the deliberate exclusion of Myanmar’s Muslim minority, including my people, the Rohingya. Like other ethnic and religious minorities in Myanmar, the country’s Rohingya — estimated to number over one million — suffered under years of repressive military rule.

 

To Say That Religion Is Divisive Is To Attempt No Analysis of the Problems At Hand: Religion Is Not to Blame
Soumaya Ghannoushi

Take the orgy of sectarian bloodshed that has been raging in Iraq for over a decade, for instance. Sunnis and Shia have been killing each other by the tens on a daily basis. Do not venture into a Sunni dominated area if your name happens to be Hassan, and you have more chance of ending up with a slit throat on some street corner if you suddenly lost your way and found yourself in Sadr city and you were called Omar. But let us not stop there, let us ask the difficult questions others would rather we left undisturbed. Why do Iraq's Sunni and Shia kill each other today when they didn't years ago? .....

Anti-Muslim Paranoia Could Still Derail Myanmar’s Journey To True Democracy
Martin Woollacott

Race and religion are casting a dark shadow over Myanmar as it moves toward critical elections next month. The elections would have been difficult enough for the country if confined to the issues of what degree of democracy can now be introduced, and what role should be played by the iconic leader Aung San Suu Kyi. …

 

Is Islam Compatible with Our Modern Way of Life?
Seidu Malik

Well, you don’t have to be a genius to figure out that the world is made up of people of different races, culture and religious affiliations all claiming to be from God. The question is, if these claims are true, how do you bring people of diverse background and opposing views to live with each other in absolute peace and harmony in society?  ...

Egypt after the Arab Spring: A Dud Return To Democracy

Many Egyptians will be content enough. As they witness chaos and bloodletting in Syria and Libya, Mr Sisi’s rule may not seem too bad. There is certainly little appetite for a return to the shambolic administration of Mr Morsi: Mr Sisi is being bankrolled by oil-rich Gulf monarchies, relations with Israel have again become close and as Mr Sisi flirts with Russia, America and Europe are re-embracing him.

 

Tunisia Is the Exception, Not the Model
Kamel Daoud

What’s to be done with Islamists? Should they be assimilated into the phony multipartism of closed regimes? Included in processes of political liberalization? Democratized by force — bombed into democratizing? Killed? For more than two decades, the question has been a torment. First for Arab elites, then for Muslim elites and then, after Sept. 11, 2001, for the whole world.

Censorship Is Returning To Indonesia In The Name Of The 1965 Purges
Laksmi Pamuntjak

A week ago I received a message from Janet DeNeefe, director of the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival.

“I just wanted to let you know that the UWRF is being censored this year, and we have been told to remove all programs to do with ‘1965’,” she wrote. “Or else next year they will not give us a permit to hold the festival.”

 

Death Is Everywhere - In Jerusalem, West Bank And Gaza
Mahmood Hasan

During the Ottoman Empire, Jews were allowed to visit Temple Mount but were not allowed to pray there. Jews could only pray at the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall but not enter the holy site. Thus a status quo was initiated.

 

What The Return Of The Arab Strongman Means For The Middle East
Mohamad Bazzi

For a short while, it seemed that the era of rule by strongmen in the Middle East was coming to an end. In October 2011, the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was captured hiding in a drainage pipe near his hometown of Sirte, and he was beaten and shot dead by rebels, bringing his 42 years in power to an ignoble end. His contemporaries were the likes of Saddam Hussein and Hafez al-Assad, military men from poor families and hardscrabble towns who fought their way to the top, riding the wave of revolutionary sentiment that swept the Arab world in the 1960s and ’70s.

 

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......

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.
