Islam and the West

These Days, It’s The Clash of the Arabian Gulf Cash in Washington
Jonathan Schanzer

As Gulf money pours in, policymakers have all but given up on the human rights violations, democracy deficits and terrorism finance challenges associated with this troubled region. Nowhere is that more glaring than with Qatar. The fact that Qatar hosts a major American airbase that is a short drive from Hamas or Taliban headquarters is simply unsustainable. Our arrangement with Qatar undermines the very ideological war we are waging from al-Udeid. ...


The fundamental reason for the growing threat of all-out war by the US is a desire to control the flow of the earth’s resources and markets; and to maximize Wall Street profits from that control. This is why the only thing the US does consistently and often is go to war. This is the definition of imperialism. ...


Are We in The Final Phase?
Peter Koenig

For the masters of war-and the would-be Masters of the Universe, it doesn’t matter whether we all go under. They still think, ‘The War’, even nuclear – will be fought in far-away places – such as Europe and the Middle East. The May, Macron, Merkel puppets, who allow it, by having nurtured NATO for the last decade-plus, hope to be ‘evacuated’ to Miami, or the Caribbean, in time, when Europe burns – for the third time in 100 years....

On Monday, the US Supreme Court partially revived President Donald Trump's revised travel ban, agreeing to hear arguments in October and allowing the administration to suspend travel for some foreign nationals and refugees until it decides the case. Trump immediately took to Twitter to declare triumph, but many travellers he hoped to ban can still enter the US, claiming their own victory. ...


Saudi Arabia's Royal Shift: Trump-Mohammad Duo Could Lead the Region into an All-Out War
Talmiz Ahmad

The scene was bizarre even by Saudi standards. The freshly-anointed crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, kissed the hands of the prince he had just replaced and then, in a remarkably non-Saudi (and, indeed, non-Islamic) gesture, fell to the ground and attempted to kiss the feet of the ousted prince.....


As U.S. Kills ISIS Leaders, a Notorious One Remains Elusive
Helene Cooper

Officials cautioned that they have no evidence that Mr. Baghdadi is dead. But the duelling narratives illustrate the plodding nature of the Defence Department’s fight against the militant Sunni Islamic extremist group, which is, after almost three years of airstrikes, on the back foot in both Iraq and Syria....

What about the Terrorism of the Far Right?
Amarnath Amarasingam and Jacob Davey

After a series of terrorist incidents in Britain either claimed or inspired by the Islamic State, in the early hours of Monday the driver of a van hit a group of men who had just attended prayers at a mosque in Finsbury Park, North London. The suspect, who was quickly subdued and arrested, reportedly shouted that he wanted to “kill all Muslims.” His crude method of attack mimicked a terrorist technique recommended by the Islamic State.....

Islamists Have Failed To Divide France, Will They Succeed In Britain?
Gavin Mortimer

This ‘perversion’ of Islam wouldn’t be tolerated, said Macron, who called on his audience to work with him ‘in maintaining national unity’ in the face of the extremists. Having failed to find Europe’s soft underbelly in France, Islamic State have turned their attention to Britain, and the alleged actions of Darren Osborne will delight them as much as those of Salman Abedi and Khuram Butt....


The Messy Politics of European Islam

Reality turns out to be messier. Yesterday, in the German city of Cologne, there was a “not in our name” rally against terrorism, which was backed by some of the country’s leading Muslim organisations, and by politicians from across the political spectrum. It was hoped that at least 10,000 people from all over the country would take part, and that it would inspire similar actions in other cities. But the event proved to be a damp squib....


Hundreds of men swept up in the hunt for al-Qaida militants have disappeared into a secret network of prisons in southern Yemen where abuse is routine and torture extreme — including the “grill,” in which the victim is tied to a spit like a roast and spun in a circle of fire, an Associated Press investigation has found.....

Thank You for Your Killing
Jacob G. Hornberger

Thank You for Your Killing
Jacob G. Hornberger

What then is the real service that U.S. troops have performed and continue to perform in Iraq and Afghanistan for which people express gratitude? Killing people. That’s what U.S. soldiers have been doing in Iraq since 1990 and in Afghanistan since 2001. They have been killing people. Lots of people. Hundreds of thousands of people. And they continue to do so on a regular basis.....

The Connection between Grenfell and Finsbury Park
Maya Goodfellow

Black Britons, Muslims and migrants; you need only look through the stories of the missing, now presumed dead, to see Grenfell was largely home to people who in the UK are classed as "other". That should come as no surprise. In a country where racism is laced into the state apparatus, people of colour are far more likely to suffer from poor housing. Housing charity, Shelter...


Trump is proving that he can lie to get into power and his supporters ignore it. If you doubt this fact, look at what Trump did by calling out Saudi Arabia for their role in 9/11 and their support for terror worldwide prior to getting elected. He now supports these terrorists and his constituency couldn’t care less. This madness has to stop. Humanity has to stop being fooled by rhetoric read from Teleprompters by puppets doing the bidding of their masters....


It has been our governments’ policies for generations to pursue what’s best “for us” at the expense of others. No one’s comfort or prosperity should be built on another’s suffering. This was the ideology of history’s worst tyrants, from the Pharaoh who enslaved the Israelites, to the pre-Islamic Arabs who buried their infant daughters in the sand. A shift towards just and fair policy toward the region is the future that the world, from East to West, deserves....


The Stigmatization of Muslims in Today’s Britain
Dr. Halla Diyab

British Muslims are now subjective to the collective manipulative rhetoric, alternating between the languages of shrewd hostility onto that of warm acceptance. This very tactic of manipulation operates on rhetoric, which the public shapes and modifies according to the actions of those who are identified with the Muslim faith; choosing when they want them to be seen as violent terrorists, when they want to be seen as heroes, and when they label them as victims....


Fighting for the Immigrants of Little Pakistan

New York City officials calculate that seventy-three thousand Pakistanis live in the five boroughs, though the true number is likely much higher. The largest concentration resides in and around Little Pakistan. On Coney Island Avenue, between Newkirk Avenue and Avenue H, men stroll down the sidewalk in Shalwar Qameez, and newspaper boxes are filled with copies of the Pakistan Post and the Urdu Times....


Israel's Dirty Little Secret: How It Drives US Policies Exploiting a Spineless Congress and White House
Philip Giraldi

Benjamin Netanyahu took him aside and came out with the usual Israeli bullshit about the Palestinians “inciting” violence and hatred of Jews and Trump bought into it. He then went to see Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and shouted at him for being a liar and opposed to peace based on what Netanyahu had told him. That is what passes for even-handed in the U.S. government, no matter who is president. A few days later the Israelis announced the building of the largest bloc of illegal new settlements on the West Bank since 1992, an action that they claim is being coordinated with Washington. Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon once boasted about owning the United States. I guess he was right.....


After the ISIS War, a US-Russia Collision?
Patrick J. Buchanan

In Iraq, the U.S. and Iran have a common foe, ISIS, and a common ally, the government in Baghdad. In Syria, we have a common foe, ISIS. But our allies are opposed by Assad, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. The question before us: After Raqqa and Mosul fall and the caliphate disappears, who inherits the ISIS estate?...


Time to Tackle Anti-Muslim Attacks Seriously
Chris Doyle

Just as questions must be asked as to why Islamist extremists like Anjem Choudary and Trevor Brooks were regularly given platforms by the likes of the BBC, questions must also be raised about merchants of hate like Katie Hopkins having a regular column in the Daily Mail. In the aftermath of the Manchester attack, she called for a “final solution” to Muslims. One writer in The Sun, Douglas Murray, wrote a column under the headline, “If we want peace then we need one thing — less Islam.”...


Israel versus the UN — the Nikki Haley Doctrine
Ramzy Baroud

By agreeing to live in Israel’s pseudo-reality, where bullies complain of being bullied, the US is moving further and further away from any international consensus on human rights and international law. This becomes more pronounced and dangerous when we consider the decision by Donald Trump’s administration to pull out from the Paris accords on global warming....


Dirty Open Secret: US Created and Supports ISIS
Stephen Lendman

They show ISIS, al-Qaeda and like-minded terrorist groups are the “major forces” used as US foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere.  The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” was long ago discredited. Yet claiming they exist persists.  The DIA documents show America, NATO, Saudi Arabia and other regional rogue states support an Islamic caliphate to challenge, topple and replace Bashar al-Assad with an imperial puppet....

Trump Knows Why People Become Jihadists
A.J. Caschetta

Revealing a canny understanding of the lure of martyrdom and the myths of Islamic paradise, Trump boldly urged Muslim religious leaders to preach a clear message: "If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be fully condemned."...

Muslims Respond to Perfect Man (Prophet Muhammad pbuh) - Bill Boards
Mike Ghouse

What did Jesus do when he was persecuted and placed on the cross? He said, “Forgive them Lord, for they know not.”  What did Muhammad (pbuh) do when the miscreants pelted stones on him during his visit to Taif?  He was bleeding and was hurt, but not only forgave, but prayed for them, for they knew not.  Most Muslims will follow the guidance and pray for the well being of screwed up men and women.  A few will struggle in forgiving them, and a handful of them will hold grudges and animosity towards the men and women who have placed those nasty bill boards? ...

Britain Has Harboured Extremists and Now It Is Paying the Price
Zarrar Khuhro

The imam himself recounts that while he was giving a sermon against the militant Islamic State (ISIS) group, Abedi looked at him with a “face of hate”. The subsequent exchange of words led to Abedi’s expulsion from the mosque and to members of the community reporting him to the authorities....


Whether one was born free or born a slave, you were not in control of your daily life. There were certain aspects that West African Muslim slaves did try to control once they came to the Americas. For example, enslaved Muslims found the nakedness they were forced into humiliating and offensive to their religion. They looked to make head wraps and long garments from anything from old blankets or hand-me-downs from their owners....
