Suu Kyi’s Apartheid Myanmar

How long our world must witness the ethnic cleansing of vulnerable minorities? In Myanmar, it’s a routine thing against the minority Rohingyas who mostly live in the northern Arakan state, close to Bangladesh. They are the most persecuted people in our planet. They were persecuted for nearly half a century by the military governments that preceded the current …

Is Abu Ivanka For Real Change In Syria?

After years of indifference the USA attacked a Syrian airfield firing 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at about 04:40 a.m. Syrian time (01:40 GMT) of Friday. They targeted aircraft, aircraft shelters, storage areas, ammunition supply bunkers and air defense systems at the Syrian government-controlled facility in Shayrat, according to the Pentagon. However, the Syrian Observatory for Human …

Time To Rethink Our Nuclear Arsenal Policy

Last year, after Donald Trump was elected he tweeted, “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.” Many peace activists were genuinely alarmed to learn about Trump’s intention, especially given the fact that the military budget of the USA is unmatched by any country in our time, and that the USA has …

Dutch Election and the presumed Muslim Problem

The Dutch had their election last Wednesday in which the anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim extremist party – the Freedom Party (PVV) – came out a distant second winning 20 seats in the 150-seat parliament. Its leader Geert Wilders ran on a "de-Islamification" platform, calling for Islamic schools to be closed and the Qur’an and burqa to be …

Is America Heading Towards Fascism?

Recently I was shaken to learn that the son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained for hours by immigration officials at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida on Feb. 7 after returning from speaking at a Black History Month event in Montego Bay, Jamaica. They were pulled aside while going through customs because of …

Trump Administration Lies Again

It seems that U.S. President Donald Trump has been misspeaking – to put it mildly – more often than not – since at least the presidential election times. Many political analysts assumed that once elected he would modify his positions and behave more responsibly as a president. But old habits die hard, esp. for someone …

Trump’s Chaotic First Couple Of Weeks

On Saturday in its front cover page the German weekly magazine Der Spiegel posted an illustration of the U.S. President Donald Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty. It depicts a cartoon figure of Trump with a bloodied knife in one hand and the statue’s head, dripping with blood, in the other. It carries the caption: …

Reflections on my recent visit to Bangladesh

I was in Bangladesh around the Christmas time. During this time of the year, many couples get married, which allowed me to attend a few of such events, almost every night I was in either Chittagong or Dhaka. Such events allowed me to connect and chat with some old friends and relatives. As usual, we …

The Rohingya – children of a ‘lesser’ God!

On Saturday, December 10, 2016, the Guardian ran a story on two Rohingya women, Noor Ayesha and Sayeda Khatun.  “Noor Ayesha held her last surviving daughter tight as their boat crossed into Bangladeshi waters. She left behind a firebombed home, a dead husband, seven slain children and the soldiers who raped her,” wrote the Guardian. …

Donald Trump’s Win – an analysis

Against all the predictions of the pundits, pollsters and polling groups, Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States. Well except one, that is from my alma mater – University of Southern California, Los Angeles. For much of the year, the 2016 USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Presidential Election Poll—designed to track changes …

How about voting for a 3rd party in US elections? Something to consider …

All Muslims are very angry with Donald Trump's caustic and hurtful comments/remarks against their faith. As American citizens, they don't plan on voting for him in the coming presidential election in the USA. Instead, most Muslim Americans would vote for Hillary Clinton who has been articulating their concerns and grievances on such matters of bigotry …

Suu Kyi must stop the ethnic cleansing in Arakan

Myanmar’s government said that the October 9 raids were conducted by the Aqamul Mujahidin organization, which it described as being affiliated with an extremist group. On the other hand, a previously unknown group – Faith Movement – has released a press statement on October 15 in which it claimed itself as the sons of Arakan …

The GOP Must Dump Trump

Can a video tape deal a death blow to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign? Could the unthinkable really happen? The Republican presidential candidate is in a deep shit – excuse my English here – after the release of a 2005 video tape this Friday in which he bragged about groping and trying to have sex with …

Thoughts on American Presidential Election – 2016

American politics, as expected, has heated up since the Labor Day. In less than two months the American voters will choose between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and casino- and real estate mogul Donald Trump for the highest political post in the land.  After five years of questioning President Barack Obama’s citizenship, Trump said …

Malaysia’s Shameful Scandal

  What’s happening in Malaysia? Are we witnessing some conspiracy to break the head of this emerging economic power, or something else? As readers may recall, the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, crashed after being hit by a Russian-made Buk missile when it was travelling over the conflict-hit region …
