Islamophobia on Wheels

IslamophobiaPromoting Hatred

On 1 April 2015 an anti-Muslim advertisement started appearing on 84 municipal buses in the Philadelphia regional area. The ad space was purchased for a four-week period by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which paid $30,000 to run its message: a picture from the early 1940s of Adolf Hitler speaking to Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti (chief Muslim religious authority) of Jerusalem, with an accompanying text, “Islamic Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran” and a call to “end all aid to Islamic countries.” Philadelphia is just the latest city to experience this sort of offensive Islamophobia.

With Freedom Comes Responsibility

International criminal justice is imperfect and all of the ad hoc international tribunals established over the past two decades have come under attack. Justice is often delivered at a snail's pace. It tends to be a costly exercise and frequently accused of failing to properly contribute to long-term stability and reconciliation in the very communities it seeks to address. Some...

The Geopolitical Right of Exception at the United Nations

The notorious, yet influential, German jurist, Carl Schmitt famously insisted that ‘a right of exception’ was the core reality of national sovereignty.

Freedom for Dr. Mohammed al-Roken

The Arab dictatorial regimes suppress criticism against anybody who dears to speak out against their authoritarian rule or uses his right of freedom of speech. In Saudi Arabia Raif Badawi and Waleed Abu al-Khair have been sentenced to long terms of imprisonment. In the Saudi dungeons hundreds of prisons are left to rot. Over 90 were beheaded in 2014.

Israel National Unity

Why Try to Change America's Path?

I want to sit down and write something. Still, for some reason, I can't seem to get started. It's a trip. When I think there is something I must say in order to advance my notion that I'm doing everything I can to change a bad situation, I find myself unable to think of anything but excuses why I don't write.
