Allah's party in Lebanon or when the community replaces the state

A portrait of Hasan Nasrallah is seated in the salon of Muhammad Mahdi Barru, the smiling owner of the " best " patisserie in al-Asahira, Baalbek. A charismatic leader of Hezbollah, a Shiite idol and a hero of the " anti-Zionist front " in the eyes of many Arabs, including Sunnis. Muhammad is not an activist of the " Allah Party ". However, he supports it " unconditionally ".

Amnesty International goes to terrorists

Amnesty International (AI) is known for its human rights activities. However, in connection with the Middle East events, only the State of Israel takes its toll and continues to campaign unprofessionally against Israel. The last time she became sadly known was the anti-Israel attacks during the war between Israel and Hamas in late 2012, which was named the "Pillar Defense".

Anti-Israel obsession

Holy Land. No other area is in such a furious conflict, no other state than Israel is so denied the right to life and existence. No other country faces such fierce and irreconcilable hatred from the left. Can this hatred be understood at all? Its core can be found in the UN and its various sub-organizations, universities and Muslim and communist countries.

Arafat, PLO, Israel and peace?

The article maps the main attempts and contradictions of the Middle East peace process until 1994. Later events are devoted to the article "Al-Aqsa Intifada".

Dog a friend or foe

Admirably loyal friends and often comrades-in-arms. I delved into this topic a bit and learned a lot at www.uswardogs.org. Already in the beginning of American history, in the 18th century, during the revolutionary initiatives of pioneers to get rid of the British colonial yoke, they made great use of the assistance of four-legged allies to sniff and successfully bite into unloved redcoats and then in other wars ...

Global terrorism

Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics. Case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
Islam, Muslim, Mohammedan, most people automatically associate these concepts with terrorism and the status of suicide bombers. When a bomb explodes somewhere in the world, a Pakistani person usually does not appear in the media, or an Afghan man is detonated, but a Muslim committed a terrorist act. Religious affiliation is above nationality here. The media, today considered the sixth power to determine public opinion, generalizes and writes about the Islamic States and their individual protests as the Muslim struggle against Western civilization, or culture. In the Western world, the terms Muslim and terrorist, Muslim and Arab, Arab and terrorist are beginning to be identified, especially among the general public. Is that really so?

Global terrorism - 1. Islam

Continuation of the article Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics - A case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
Looking at the world map, we find that a substantial part of the countries of the so-called third world are countries with Islamic culture. Many of these countries are religious states. There are opinions among experts that religious states do not belong to the twenty-first century. Religious states are, after all, the domain of the Middle Ages, and there their history was supposed to end ...

Global terrorism - 2. Conflict of cultures, West versus Islam

Continuation of the article Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics - A case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
As long as Islam remains Islam ( which is certain) and the West ( which is less certain ) the West, the relations between the two civilizations will be determined by this fundamental dispute, as they have been determined by fourteen centuries. This development is partly connected with the opposition between sacral and secular values, partly with the historical rivalry between Christianity and Islam, partly with the jealous nature of Western power, partly with the hostility caused by Western dominance in the post-colonial political order of the Middle East and partly with bitterness, which makes an unfavorable comparison of the individual achievements of Islamic and Western civilization in the last two centuries.

Global terrorism - 3. Suicide Attack, Part 1

Continuation of the article Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics - A case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
Defining suicide terrorism is very complicated. There are countless authors and countless definitions. Definition of terror, terrorist first appeared during the French Revolution to refer to those who used terror on behalf of the state. On the contrary, in the 19th century, Russian and French anarchists fighting against the state were so proudly called themselves. Nazi Germany during World War II described members of the resistance movement in this way. So who is actually a terrorist. One who uses violence on behalf of or against the state?

Global terrorism - 3. Suicide Attack, Part 2

Continuation of the article Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics - A case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
The suicide bombing, as a form of global terrorism, has found its irreplaceable place in recent decades among the means of coercion that serve as a way for terrorists to achieve political goals.

Global terrorism - Conclusion

Continuation of the article Global terrorism, its forms and effectiveness in international politics - A case study of the Islamic cultural circle.
Islam, a monotheistic religion that grew on the same foundations as Christianity and Judaism, is seen as a new, reformed form of a single correct religion. Islam does not deny the authority of Christianity. He only claims that people have gradually changed, distorted and corrupted this teaching, so God sent people one more, last holy book, the Qur'an.
