Islam and Politics

Ankara knows who its primary enemies are and it is not the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). There are good reasons why Turkey has been supporting ISIL for several years, despite some recent attacks against it. In addition, Ankara supports Jabhat al-Nusra, Arar al-Sham and Jaysh al-Fath, which are tied to the al-Qaeda network.....

Revisiting Islamic Peacekeepers in Afghanistan
S. Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

At the time, some Orientalist commentators also voiced concerns about the dangers of radicalization if Muslim peacekeepers moved into Afghanistan. To their minds, breathing the same air as the Taliban could brainwash otherwise moderate Muslims into becoming barbaric, bloodthirsty ideologues. As precedent, they pointed to foreign Mujahideen from Bosnia, Kosovo and Chechnya in the Soviet jihad who returned home to destabilize their respective societies….

 

Un-Mosquing Obama's First US Mosque Visit
Khaled A Beydoun

Between being profiled as a "Muslim" by the likes of Donald Trump and extending the covert "war on terror" both globally and against the US' eight million Muslim citizens domestically, Obama's long-awaited stop at an American mosque may be reason for greater concern than his decision to avoid them.....

How Politics Has Poisoned Islam
Mustafa Akyol

This political question even pits the prophet’s widow Aisha against his son-in-law Ali. Their followers killed one another by the thousands in the infamous Battle of the Camel in 656. The next year, they fought the even bloodier Battle of Siffin, where followers of Ali and Muawiyah, the governor of Damascus, crossed swords, deepening the divisions that became the Sunni-Shiite split that persists today......

Jinnah between Kerala and Dubai
Jawed Naqvi

Driven by abject poverty in the pre-Dubai Kerala they were lured by the money they could earn in Karachi. When they wanted to visit their families back in India, touts suggested they get a Pakistani passport and then apply for an Indian visa. Oblivious of concepts like citizenship, they didn’t realise the trap.

 

Don’t Shoot the Messenger, Israel
Ban Ki-Moon

Nothing excuses terrorism. I condemn it categorically. It is inconceivable, though, that security measures alone will stop the violence. As I warned the Security Council last week, Palestinian frustration and grievances are growing under the weight of nearly a half-century of occupation. Ignoring this won’t make it disappear......

Military-Mullah Nexus Strangling Pakistan
Balbir Punj

How far will the Pakistan establishment go in suppressing, if not eradicating, the terror machine that it has hand-held for long as a secret weapon against India? This is a matter of speculation.  Perhaps the political leaders there will have the statesmanship to unite and contain the military and wean the masses away from the Mullahs. “These are high hopes!”...

 

Why Is the World Ignoring Palestine’s ‘Third Intifada’?
Shubhda Chaudhary

Throughout the history of the Palestinian nation’s struggles, two streaks of Islamist and nationalistic thinking have accompanied this nation side by side. Even the establishment of a coalition government has not been able to totally do away with the basic differences that exist between these two groups. As a result of it, the internal power politics in Palestine has never been materialized, especially with the animosity between Hamas and Fatah growing stronger. It makes it easier for Israel to simply state that ‘There’s no one to talk to?’....

 

Gaza Speaks: This Is What the Decade-Long Siege Has Done to Us
Ramzy Baroud

The destruction in Gaza as a result of three consecutive wars (2008-9, 12 and 14) has been so severe; it has affected almost every aspect of the Strip’s already dilapidated infrastructure. Power outages, for example, have become part of life in Gaza. If all goes according to plan, Palestinians here have only 8-10 hours, per day, to utilize electricity, and for the rest of the day they suffer in darkness. The UN had already declared that life in Gaza will become ‘uninhabitable’ by 2020....

 

Muslim World: The Leaders Who Could Not Lead
Mahboob A Khawaja

How could Saudi hang a religious scholar just for challenging the regime? Do they know how to implement the Islamic jurisprudence and its manifestation? Islam seeks a just balance- ‘al-Meezan’ in human affairs, not extremism. Leaders are crushing the human spirit of rational thinking and opportunities to dispel the disposable differences. The raging conflicts in the Muslim world are nothing other than the sectarian infested madness and horror irrelevant to the values and principles of Islam.....

 

Why Pak Army Won't Let Modi, Sharif Steal Show
Ayesha Siddiqa

Despite the news, his men in Bahawalpur seemed calm and contained. Though news came of the JeM's offices being shut down, one wondered what they were talking about since the JeM has no office. It is not a political party which would require an office. Its entire business is conducted from the madrasa Usman-o-Ali in Bahawalpur and another huge madrasa being built on the main highway outside the city. Closing down these seminaries would draw attention and create excitement that was not observable.....

 

Politics in the Middle East: The Arab winter

The most internationalised conflict is the bitter civil war in Syria, where powers from the region and beyond contend through proxies. The war has long since metastasised into a monumental free-for-all involving dozens of belligerents. ...

An Open Letter To Young Muslims Everywhere: The Seed Of Triumph In Every Adversity
Ramzy Baroud

Islam was not the problem when Palestine was overrun by Zionist militias, with the help of the British and, later, the Americans, turning the Holy Land into a battlefield for most of the last century. The repercussions of that act has sealed the region’s fate from relative peace into a repugnant and perpetual war and conflict.

Making War vs. Hearing Citizen Sentiments in the Arab World
Rami G. Khouri

Those people in our region and abroad who seek real insights into Arab people’s views and values, rather than the fantasy and racism that define much of the public discussion of our region, would do well to read more about these findings on the website of the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies.

 

The tensions in the West Bank and Jerusalem are reaching a peak, but Palestinians seem reluctant to call this revolution the “Palestinian Arab Spring” because the Arab Spring revolutions brought nothing but disasters to the Arab World (Libya and Syria are now in the midst of a Civil War, while Tunisia and Egypt are now struggling with Salafis/Jihadist groups). That is one of the reasons most of the young Palestinians prefer to give it another name, more positive one.
