Geo-Legal, Geo-Political, Geo-Historical and Geo-Cultural Truth Upholds Al- Quds Belongs To Palestinians
Syed Qamar Afzal Rizvi

Nevertheless, Trump-Netanyahu designed political engineering or their sophistry to redefine the sovereignty of Jerusalem via US embassy shifting is a deceitful ploy that cannot defy the geo-legal, geo-political, geo-historical, and geo-cultural truth that upholds East Jerusalem (Al- Quds) belongs only to Palestinians.....

 

Can Palestinians Really Count On the UN to Conduct a Fair Investigation?
Eresh Omar Jamal

And when it comes to downplaying the sufferings of Palestinians, even the UN is not innocent—as one document published by WikiLeaks dated May 5, 2009 showed former UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon secretly working with Israel to undermine the UN's report on war crimes perpetrated in Gaza. With that in mind, can Palestinians really count on the UN to conduct a fair investigation into the recent carnage unleashed on them by the IDF, especially with powerful western nations always backing Israel...

 

Muslims Are Very Much Part of British Society, Urban or Rural

The vast majority of Britain’s 2.8m Muslims live in cities; half are in London, Birmingham and Bradford. By contrast, nobody described themselves as Muslim in 4,781 of the 11,000-odd parishes of England and Wales, at the last census. In a further 1,130 parishes, there was only one Muslim in the village. But small numbers have gradually spread across the country....

 

The Victims, Palestinians, Are Themselves the Culprits: This Is Exactly How the Palestinians Are Treated For 70 Years
Robert Fisk

Monstrous. Frightful. Wicked. It’s strange how the words just run out in the Middle East today. Sixty Palestinians dead. In one day. Two-thousand-four-hundred wounded, more than half by live fire. In one day. The figures are an outrage, a turning away from morality, a disgrace for any army to create. And we are supposed to believe that the Israeli army is one of “purity of arms”? ....

 

At Long Last, Hollywood Is Planning a Blockbuster Film in Which a Muslim, Ms Marvel, Will Not Be a Threat
Coco Khan

Believe it or not, many Muslim women have other interests outside the hijab. Some like books and jogging, others like Justin Bieber (we can only apologise for this). There are many other issues and pastimes that make up Muslim women’s experience; perhaps they are less useful in male-dominated culture wars, but they are real and should be heard....

 

Palestinians Appear, Simply and Almost Mysteriously, To ‘Have Died', Say American News Headlines
Moustafa Bayoumi

Over 70 years ago, George Orwell wrote that modern political language “is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable”. It saddens me to see how nothing has changed. And nothing will change until we demand more from the purveyors of today’s political language. Palestinians deserve better. We all deserve better. And no one should have to die more than once....

 

Improving On What Obama Started Would Have Greatly Advanced U.S. Interests
Thomas L. Friedman

What a shame. Just improving on what Obama started would have greatly advanced U.S. interests — a 25-year assurance, with intrusive inspections, that Iran could not suddenly build a bomb. And it would have left us arm in arm with our closest allies, rather than us now threatening to sanction their companies if they trade with Iran. But Trump wanted to crush both Obama and Iran, and so he trashed the whole deal...

 

Neo-Colonialist Arrangement of the World: Travelling around the Middle East has become a Kafkaesque Experience
Andre Vltchek

“And what if someone from an Arab country which does not recognize Israel, wants to come here, to Bethlehem? Like, a Lebanese pilgrim or just a tourist? Could he or she enter from Jordan?” The waiter weighed for a while whether to reply at all, but then had mercy on me: “West Bank… You know, it only appears on the maps as some sort of autonomous or independent territory. In reality, the borders and movement of the people have been fully controlled by the Israelis.”...

 

Your Majesty, Please Tell Erdogan ‘Enough’ When He Pops In For Tea
Ece Temelkuran

However, I am certain that you would remember the days when, as a princess in the Second World War, you had to become an army mechanic, and posed for pictures in uniform. You very well remember that the lack of integrity and ethical reaction to evil is far more dangerous than evil itself....

 
The West and Iran
Tewfick Aclimandos

The West and Iran
Tewfick Aclimandos

Washington will also not put pressure on it. Iran has secured access to the Mediterranean, and now it needs a long pause to consolidate its gains and to restructure its economy. Turkey could easily be placated with territorial gains. According to such commentators, the sooner these three major players realise that a Middle Eastern grand bargain on the lines of the Yalta Summit meeting at the end of the Second World War, the better things will be....

 

The first strikes a balance between Iran’s right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes as also the international community’s concern to ensure that its nuclear programme remains strictly peaceful. The second sentence contains implicit disapproval of the American decision and warns, again implicitly, against any strong military action. For India, the question will also be: can it rely on the U.S. to honour even its written word embodied in international agreements? ...

 

Iran's Aggression, Not Donald Trump's, Has Sundered the Nuclear Deal
Con Coughlin

Rather than pursue the aggressive, anti-western policies that have come to define the Islamic Republic since the 1979 revolution, the deal offered an opportunity for Tehran to change course, adopting a more positive mindset in its dealings with the outside world. Mr Obama certainly believed that to be the case, which may explain why he was minded to give the Iranians such a good deal, one that conveniently glossed over decades of deception over its nuclear activities....

 

There are other reasons to believe that a greater understanding of Islam is behind these attitude changes. There has been a global crisis in Islamic scholarship for many decades. British Muslims have been left to learn Islam from the cultural practices of their parents, or bits of sermons from imams of unknown qualifications. It should not be surprising, given the less liberal cultures of India and the Middle East, that that has led to illiberal attitudes here....

The Nuclear Deal Makes America Complicit In Iranian Crimes: Why Would The U.S. Want To Fund The Regime’s Imperialism?
Reuel Marc Gerecht

And Reagan certainly didn’t allow arms-control treaties to stand in the way of the larger mission. Neither should we. We can ratchet up a lot of economic pain for the Iranian regime. Rouhani made a lot of promises before he was elected president, promises that he could not keep. Broken promises and lost hope can provoke internal unrest....

 

The Paris Agenda against Terrorism: A Shot In The Dark?
Christian Chesnot

Emmanuel Macron’s France presented a challenge to the 70 countries present in Paris. He shot the starting flare, but will it be followed by real results? Some people should not play the game half-heartedly. The president has made an appointment for 2019 in Australia, where the next conference will take place. We shall see then whether the level of commitment has been weak or have gains been in draining the finances of ISIS and al-Qaeda....

 

The Trump Administration’s Hard Line on Refugees Comes under Fire
Jonathan Blitzer

With some twenty-two million people displaced, the world is in the midst of the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. Almost a quarter of those refugees are Syrians, a population that the President has said he wants to protect. Each iteration of his travel ban, however, has sought to block travellers trying to enter the U.S. from Syria, and to restrict refugee admissions from the country. So far this year, the United States has accepted just eleven Syrian refugees...

 

Binyamin Netanyahu Tries To Convince Donald Trump to Scuttle the Iran Deal

It was one of the most hyped PowerPoint presentations in history. “Game changing”, “very significant” and “dramatic”, was how aides to Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, described it. To many viewers, it did not disappoint. On April 30th Mr Netanyahu (pictured) unveiled 55,000 pages stolen by Israeli spies, fully half a ton of material related to Iran’s nuclear programme. He showed off photographs of test devices and blueprints of warheads. The “secret atomic archive” proved beyond any doubt, said Mr Netanyahu, that Iran had for years sought to develop nuclear weapons....

 

How Britain Engaged In A Covert Operation To Overthrow Assad
Mark Curtis

Hundreds of Britons, including jihadists working with the most violent groups, are believed to have been trained in Syria and encouraged to return to the UK to launch attacks. Britain's active, warmongering policy on Syria is a disaster for the people of that country and the UK....

 

The Muslim Ban Makes Americans, Especially This One, Less Safe
Mana Kharrazi

Certainly, proponents of the travel ban argue that it protects Americans and is critical to our national security. However, more than 130 former defence and foreign policy experts declare the opposite in a signed letter, saying the ban does “weaken US national security and undermine US global leadership”. Signatories, including veterans from multiple former administrations, say that “America’s much admired compassion and openness are sources not of weakness but strength. These qualities accord with the ideals on which our nation was founded, and on which our greatness rests”....

 

How the NYT Partook In the Plunder of Iraq
Sinan Antoon

The documents are crucial for the country's history and its future and they belong to the Iraqis. Their removal from Iraq, irrespective of any justification, is a violation of the 1907 Hague Convention. Iraqis across areas formerly held by ISIL are struggling to rebuild their destroyed cities and to reconstruct their shattered lives. Why have they been deprived of troves of documents containing evidence of crimes committed against them?...

 

It was undoubtedly an illegal act on part of the three mighty allies because there was no United Nations approval for the strikes. Moreover, all three acted without getting the assent of their respective parliaments, making their actions domestically unconstitutional as well. There was not even a pretence of legal cover. The allied leaders Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron, have since then attempted to defend their decision on humanitarian pretext....

 

I Believe In the UN, but It Needs To Examine Its Conscience over Syria
Martti Ahtisaari

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council need to take a long, hard look in the mirror. Throughout the war, the Security Council has failed to act. Veto power has been used in an irresponsible manner to obstruct and obfuscate. Permanent members have focused on scoring political points at home and with their allies, rather than building common ground and demonstrating leadership....

 

The Campaign to Exterminate Muslims
Chris Hedges

“In some sense, the figure of the terror suspect forms the testing ground upon which Western versions of ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’ are deliberated,” writes Nisha Kapoor in “Deport, Deprive, Extradite: 21st Century State Extremism.” “It is via the representation of these individuals that cases are made in support of summary killings, bigger bombs, drone strikes, ever more grotesque forms of torture, and clandestine and indefinite detention. It is also through the policing of such individuals that mechanisms have been put in place in Britain [and the United States] for the growing use of secret justice, the retraction of the provisions of citizenship and the move away from human rights protections.”....

Use Iran Sanctions to Stop Assad
Mark Dubowitz, Richard Goldberg

If the Europeans want to save the nuclear deal and punish Mr. Assad’s enablers, they need to move on sanctions. A true fix cannot impede the West’s ability to curb Iran’s nonnuclear illicit activities, even if the targets of such financial warfare were initially granted sanctions relief under the accord. Nor can a fix be complete without maximum pressure on Tehran’s terrorist proxies....

 

America’s Three Bad Options in Syria
Max Fisher

These debates over Syria are revealing, but not in the way the participants often intend. That Americans so often arrive at the same policy of limited airstrikes tells us a lot about why the Syria problem is so difficult. It also tells us a lot about the foreign policy hang-ups of the United States....
