Islam and the West

In the name of "safeguarding" civilisation, the forces waging the "war on terror" have revived a form of punishment once described by the United States Supreme Court as "more primitive than torture": the stripping of citizenship....

“This has nothing to do with Islam. Don’t bring Islam into it.” Or “Who are you- don’t be the righteous and be Islamic police.” Some even used the “M” word- Mullah....

Terrorism had nothing to do with all this. While Soviet leaders were concerned about “religious fanatics” that were involved in Afghan protests, the Soviets were overwhelmingly worried about U.S. power and influence....

 

Establishing NU representation in Europe, particularly in Germany, could make a significant contribution to counteracting the ongoing excesses of Muslim extremists in the public domain....

 

The US has spent about a trillion dollars in Afghanistan since 2001, yet today the Taliban holds more territory than at any point since the war began 17 years ago...

 

But if a mosque tax were introduced, they could apply to become public corporations, in the way that Christian churches are. That would open the doors for them to own land, to enter into contracts with companies and government entities, further entwining the mosque and the state...

 

Then she spoke about what her victory meant to her son, who told her it showed that bullies — like Donald Trump — don’t win....

 Representative Tlaib recounted a conversation she had previously had with her son. “Bullies don’t win,” her son had told her. ].”....

 

The real problem is the lack of sound analysis and a clear understanding of what are the strategies that are being put forth against the Muslim world and how to end being pawns on a massive chess board....

There is virtually no possibility of a military victory over the Taliban and little chance of leaving behind a self-sustaining democracy — facts that Washington’s policy community has mostly been unable to accept....

 

Yet, as Asia Bibi – surely one of the people in the world most needful of asylum in a safe country – continues to fear for her life in her country of origin, Britain's idea of who should be allowed to travel to the country (and stay) looks ever more perverse....

 

Society can no longer demand integration, then penalise Muslim women’s attempts to be part of it and hound them out. I hope that 2019 is the year when we stop gaslighting Muslim women....

 

When campaigners shout that all who are concerned about Islam are fascists, the reaction is ... defence against those who so readily dismiss those concerns without serious engagement. ...

 

The Syrian theatre is too complex to feature a zero-sum game. ...

 

Benchmarks could draw on 88 recommendations by a commission led by the late Kofi Annan and include targets for the restoration of full citizenship rights for Rohingya, freedom of movement, and free and unfettered access for aid groups, human rights monitors and the media. If Myanmar fails to show progress over a specified period of time, the U.S. government should consider additional sanctions. It’s one thing to question the effectiveness of the U.N. It’s another to stand by and watch another genocide unfold — and do nothing....

It was good to see the man who had no qualms about dropping "the mother of all bombs" (MOAB) on Afghanistan or arming Saudi Arabia to the teeth to slaughter Yemenis had suddenly developed a gentle soul and felt he could not handle hearing the suffering of a single person being strangled....

 

Afghanistan has remained the hub of Taliban and the country is witnessing burgeoning activities of Taliban groups again for the past few years, which is surely very challenging for the government and security apparatus of Afghanistan. Nonetheless US in the past has often announced that it will soon finish its set-up from Afghanistan and leave the country but there are many impediments in exercising this policy....

 

Today, neither Zia nor Junejo is with us. Nor indeed are many of the key actors or defining conditions of the Geneva Accord that was supposed to have avoided the civil war of the early 1990s, and the Taliban regime that came after it. Fair reporting on Pakistan and US understanding of the country’s complexities and needs are also long dead. Little has survived since the 1980s and 1990s. But three things endure....

 

Just like then, the Taleban today are in no hurry to cut a deal with an adversary who they perceive is about to cut and run. The Taleban smell blood - and a victory - but they are not yet rushing to the finish line. As a Taleban fighter once summarised: "The US has the watches, but we have all the time!" The US may have to pull out, but the Taleban have nowhere to go to. They are in it for a longer haul than anyone thinks....

 

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has reportedly concluded that Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince, personally ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. The murder of the Saudi dissident journalist at the Kingdom’s Istanbul consulate on October 2 has already triggered a global outrage against MBS, as the Crown Prince is known. But U.S. President Donald Trump seems unfazed by both the findings of his spy agency as well as the mounting global outcry....

 

A large part of the truth is undeniable: Khashoggi was murdered by individuals with close ties to the Saudi government and its de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (widely known as MBS). Weeks of official Saudi denials and lies only reinforced the conclusion – now also the reported judgment of the US Central Intelligence Agency – that the murder was premeditated and approved at the top....

 

The United States does not lose wars; it only loses interest. From America’s point of view, Afghanistan is a poor backwater that becomes strategically significant only when a hostile power controls it. The United States supported Afghans waging a holy war against the Soviets during the 1980s, only to walk away after the Soviet withdrawal and return after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. ...

 

The media has a long history of double standards when it comes to covering terrorism ― starting with how slow mainstream media is to label attacks by white perpetrators as “terrorism,” and quick to label them as such when attackers are perceived as non-white or “other” ― and specifically, Muslim. Part of problem is the complex nature of how officials choose to categorize attacks as terrorism....

There is something rotten in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its serfdom Pakistan, but both the U.S. and Israel seem to be blind to this fact. Unfortunately, ordinary Iranians will be forced to pay the price of living under an Islamic dictatorship, the insecurity stemming from the threat of sanctions and a liberal-left that is in bed with Iran’s Islamists....

 

Weeks back this newspaper in an investigative article had already proved that Queen Elizabeth is the direct descendant of the Prophet of Islam. In another report, it was revealed that Prince Charles has secretly embraced Islam and has been living the life of a practicing Muslim. Now, there is specific report on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who is a retired American actress and became a member of the British royal family upon her marriage to Prince Harry is patronizing radical Islamic militancy....
