Islam and the West

The crisis of Western values has many aspects, many faces. There is a decline in faith in liberal democracy, a loss of confidence in universal human rights, a collapse in support for all kinds of transnational projects....

 

In the Euphrates Valley near Iraq, “once you liberate terrain it’s not over. ISIS and al Qaeda are experts at blending in to the population and remain in a cellular structure and commit activities that delegitimize governance.”...

 

His detractors, scholars like the liberal Paul Berman, saw something far more sinister in Ramadan’s recipe for a ‘European Islam’ (and consequently European Muslim) that embraced cosmopolitanism and was done with the archaic demands doled out by migrant clerics....

 

Then and only then will strategic communications work—namely, communicating to their strategic ally Israel that it should exit the State of Palestine, once and for all...

 

The outrageous exclusion of members of Congress from Israel-Palestine has focused unprecedented attention on the Israeli occupation and the BDS movement. This is the time to pressure congressional representatives to rethink their uncritical support for Israel and the $3.8 billion annually the United States provides to Israel....

 

But, long before Tlaib and Omar captured international attention, grassroots activists like Linda Sarsour and Zahra Billoo have been working tirelessly at local levels with progressive-leftist activists across religious and racial lines to secure the dignity and rights of the most marginalised....

Thus, the theological approach of scholars like Hamza Yusuf not only stifles Muslim resistance efforts worldwide, but also preaches against so-called "self-victimisation", which often descends into outlandish defences of Donald Trump...

 

The visit that Omar and Tlaib had planned was, undeniably, a challenge to the Israeli government. Their tentative itinerary, titled “Delegation to Palestine,” did not include meetings at the Knesset; its purpose, Omar said, “was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders.”...

The United States is a wonderful country that thrives on contradictions. It tops the world on economy, technology, military hardware and propaganda. Its ideals, however, flounder upon practice because its people excel in doublespeak….

 

I am going to say this as simply and clearly as I can: If you’re an American Jew and you’re planning on voting for Donald Trump because you think he is pro-Israel, you’re a damn fool...

Yet contrary to Mr. Trump’s tweet, it is blocking entry by two American legislators who are critics of Israel that shows great weakness, especially after Israel hosted visits by delegations of 31 Republican and 41 Democratic lawmakers this month....

 

In both, there is the apocalyptic ideology that predicts — and promises to hasten — a civilisational conflict that will consume the world. There is theatrical, indiscriminate violence that will supposedly bring about this final battle...

He declared that the two sides had made “excellent progress” towards an agreement that would allow America to bring its troops home. What was left, he said, were “technical details” and “steps and mechanisms” for implementing it....

 

Their zeal, their inability to feel any compassion for their victims, their failure to see through their own ragged logic, are reminiscent of the characteristics of the extremist mindset that Pakistanis know well....

 

The Houthis are likely to be stronger, the opposition more fragmented, Iran more influential, Saudi Arabia less safe and more vilified. And the Yemenis more impoverished and desperate....

 

Israel's flip-flopping on the matter of Omar and Tlaib's entry is far from accidental. The involvement of the ILC as a so-called NGO enables the Israeli government to avoid direct accountability for its racist...

 

The fear is that once they are gone, the Americans will forget all about this region (their foreign policy already lays limited stakes in South Asia beyond Afghanistan), and Pakistan will once again be left to face the consequences all on its own. ...

 

I am a citizen, yes. But I am also a brown-skinned Muslim woman who looks like the members of “the squad” whom President Trump told to go back to where they came from. I live in Baltimore, a place the president calls “dangerous and filthy.”...

 

You all know what he said: We do not love this country. He told us, in effect, to go back where we came from. He has even gone so far as to call me a “crazed lunatic.”...

 

Years of talk about an integrated GCC missile-defence command have led nowhere, and individual defences are spotty....

 

Ilhan Omar is precisely what his racist base hate the most: a black and visibly Muslim woman. And no matter what conservatives say, her insistence on speaking out is a courageous act....

We Turks, like any other nationality in the Middle East, value familial bonds highly and tend to exaggerate things with the use of superlative adjectives....

 

However both allies and foes could equally agree that Trump’s arrival allows them to drive the bilateral process at a completely different track, unfettered by bureaucratic and organization dynamics.…

 

It is symptomatic of the divisive wedge that has been driven through the psyche of the British by the Brexit farce that, in two days last week, two polarized representations of Islam emerged in the UK. One spoke to the tolerant nature of the open society that post-colonial Britain had aspired to become, embracing all faiths, races and cultures as equal....

Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has for the first time openly said what has been the West's worst kept secret. According to him, the Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism - the main source of the fundamentalist ideology of terrorist groups like ISIS began as a result of Western countries asking Riyadh to help counter Russia during the Cold War....
