Why Biden loves to demonise Putin

Friday, 4 March 2022 — Indian Punchline


Pope Francis (R) met Patriarch Kirill (R) at Havana airport in Havana in February 2016 in the first meeting of a Catholic pope and head of Russian Orthodox Church, on a mission to try to overcome the rift in Christianity dating back to Great Schism of 1054.

The Ukraine conflict has dimensions ranging from geopolitics to geoeconomics. But the subterranean eddy of animate religious passions eludes the casual non-Christian observer. A remark recently by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic that 85% of his country’s residents will always support Russia, come what may, called attention to the paradigm. But religious cleavages in Christianity, when it overlaps with racial divides particularly, are a highly sensitive matter that is never allowed to climb up from the attic to the living room.

Did the West Gas Thousands to Rescue Failed Syrian War? 

(Tony Cartalucci) – As far back as 2007, it was a documented fact that the West, including the United States and its allies Saudi Arabia and Israel, conspired to use terrorists drawn from the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda in an attempt to overthrow the governments of Iran and Syria.

Deaths on the Nile: Is Egypt’s revolution following the course of Iran’s? BY SLAVOJ ŽIŽEK

24 August 2013 — In These Times

Now that the Egyptian Army has decided to break the stalemate and cleanse the public space of Islamist protesters, and the result is hundreds of deaths, one should first just imagine what an uproar this would have caused if the same bloodbath were to happen, say, in Iran. However, it is more urgent to take a step back and focus on the absent third party in the ongoing conflict: Where are the protesters who took over Tahrir Square two-and-a-half years ago? Is their role now not weirdly similar to the role of the Muslim Brotherhood during the 2011 Arab Spring—that of the impassive observer?

The Rolling Stone Cover and the 'New Ideological Threat' By Emily Masters

26 July 2013 — FAIR Blog

Rolling Stone "Bomber" Cover

The Controversial Rolling Stone “Bomber” Cover

The cover of Rolling Stone (8/13), featuring a self-portrait of Dzhokhar Tsaernav taken weeks before the Boston bombing, has fueled a strong backlash. Discussing the cover, Fox News‘ Lisa Daftari (7/18/13) said:

In the aftermath of 9/11, if you look back over a decade ago, this country had an awakening, an understanding, that we have a new ideological threat that is on our soil. People became aware. But we’ve since gone very far from that, almost gone too far from that. We are almost becoming overcompensating, for fear of being Islamophobic. Political correctness is leading us to put a terrorist on the cover of a national magazine like this.

Egypt's revolution betrayed: Fuel for al-Qaeda fires By Eric Walberg

5 July 2013 — Eric Walberg

During the past few months, dozens of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood (MB) members have been murdered and their offices sacked and burned. The police openly refuse to protect them. Rather than ordering the opposition to drop their demand that Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, resign, and negotiate reasonably with his government, the army gave him a Hobson’s Choice: resign or be ousted.

The Return of Empires (VI)
16.03.2013 | 00:00 | Dmitry MININ

The rebirth of the imperial spirit in the West is moving along two sometimes converging, but in recent times increasingly diverging, lines. Looking at Europe’s relations with its neighbours, one can see that the European Union initially pursued an imperial policy with regard to countries in Central and Eastern Europe that had joined the EU, but then began to extend the same policy to other countries. The line, however, is looking increasingly faded: many EU countries have no enthusiasm regarding its further expansion and, what is more, there is a growing feeling that this federative quasi-empire will soon collapse…more

Feminist monkey wrenches in Egypt’s revolution By Eric Walberg

18 March 2013 — Eric Walberg 


Egypt‘s National Council for Women

The process of shaping post-revolutionary Egypt to conform to the postmodern imperial world is proceeding apace. Egypt’s long history of invasion and occupation by first France (under Napoleon) and then Britain, and less formally from 1970 on under first Sadat and Mubarak, means there is a strong secular tradition, and the current attempt by Islamists to reverse this accommodation of western norms—’good’ and ‘bad’—is meeting fierce resistance, with women and their ‘rights’ at the forefront.

Why US Cannot Forgive Chavez Easily (II)
09.03.2013 | 00:00 | Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

The legacy of Hugo Chavez is a many-splendored thing. Venezuela is a country with a population of around 30 million with limited national strength and yet Chavez’s death is being noted and discussed as an international event of much significance… Looking back, Chavez succeeded in his mission to undermine the US influence all over Latin America and he probably succeeded on a scale that even Fidel Castro and Che Guevara in their heyday could not have…

Egypt erupts in anger. Democracy is not the final word (II) By Melkulangara BHADRAKUMAR

14 December 2012Strategic Culture Foundation

Part I

The main criticism being voiced about the government led by President Mohamed Morsi within Egypt and by some foreign observers is that it lacks the majority support of the people of Egypt. In substantiation of this argument it is often mentioned that Morsi obtained less than 25 percent of the votes polled in the first round of the Egyptian president election (May 2012) and barely scraped through in the runoff with just about fifty percent plus of the popular votes.
