The dying gasps of Bani Saud

Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Thani 22, 14372016-02-01

Like Lemmings, the Bani Saud are rushing headlong into the sea toward collective suicide. Few would miss these savages from the desert caves of Najd.


As US economy sinks into debt and oblivion, the Zionists continue to push for more wars

Crescent International

Ramadan 01, 14322011-08-01

There is heated debate in Washington about what to do with the runaway debt crisis. And this time it is real. Both halves of the American body politic — the Republicans and the Democrats — have finally been stung by the uncontrollable debt that is officially acknowledged to be around $14.4 trillion.


Even US’s allies reject its attempts to brand Revolutionary Guards as terrorists

Waseem Shehzad

Sha'ban 19, 14282007-09-01

Like a spoiled child that throws a tantrum when it cannot get what it wants, the US government is threatening to place the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) of Iran on the list of “terrorist” organizations unless the UN Security Council agrees to tougher sanctions against Tehran. The idea is so preposterous that even Washington’s friends have baulked. How can an important arm of government be described as a “terrorist” organization, they ask incredulously.


Musharraf’s policies in Pakistan dictated by Washington

Abid Ullah Jan

Jumada' al-Ula' 13, 14252004-07-01

Last March US secretary of state Colin Powell designated Pakistan a "major non-NATO ally", while refraining from publicly criticizing general Pervez Musharraf’s handling of the controversy over nuclear physicist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan...

Washington’s “Syria Accountability Act” threatens to turn war on terrorism against Damascus

Nasr Salem

Ramadan 11, 14232002-10-16

The world’s attention has been gripped for the past few weeks by US saber-rattling over Iraq. But this war mania has blinded much of the world to other developments in Washington’s open-ended drive to settle scores and “lead the world,” while pretending to fight a “war on terrorism.”


Washington demands that Sudan resumes peace talks – or else

M.S. Ahmed

Rajab 24, 14232002-10-01

When Khartoum and the Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army (SPLA) signed the Machakos peace deal on July 20, American officials said that they would exert pressure to make the deal stick.

Mahathir’s reconciliation with Washington raises possibility of rehabilitation of Anwar Ibrahim

Abdar Rahman Koya

Rabi' al-Awwal 19, 14232002-06-01

There are no permanent enemies or allies in politics. Malaysia’s opposition front, dominated by the Islamic Party (PAS), which has joined hands with former UMNO members disenchanted with prime minister Mahathir Mohamad over his injustices to Anwar Ibrahim, are already feeling the winds of betrayal blowing.


West welcomes Afghanistan back to ‘civilization’


Shawwal 01, 14222001-12-16

While assorted representatives of Afghan groups were meeting with Western leaders in Bonn to map out a government for Afghanistan “freely determined by its own people,” and American bombs were continuing to fall on towns and villages in some parts of the country, two other conferences on Afghanistan’s future were taking place in Washington and Pakistan.

Washington debates possible attack on Iraq

Abul Fadl

Shawwal 01, 14222001-12-16

Intoxicated by the devastating display of America’s military juggernaut in Afghanistan, senior US officials have been issuing bellicose statements about Iraq. President George W Bush joined the chorus on November 26 when he warned Iraqi president Saddam Hussein to readmit UN arms-inspectors or face unspecified consequences.

Arabs fall in with US plans with hardly a murmur of protest

Abul Fadl

Rajab 29, 14222001-10-16

Despite Washington’s recent diplomatic scramble to get support for its “war on terrorism,” getting key Arab countries on board remains an unfinished task. This became clear during US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s tour earlier this month of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Oman, Uzbekistan and Turkey. Rumsfeld’s efforts were received tepidly by Washington’s Arab allies.

Mahathir eyes White House invitation as repression continues in Malaysia

Abdar Rahman Koya

Rabi' al-Thani 18, 14382001-08-16

The beleaguered Mahathir regime in Malaysia appears to have a knack for finding strategies that have unintended effects. In its latest campaign to silence the opposition, ten more people, including Nik Adli Nik Abdul Aziz, the son of PAS chief Nik Abdul Aziz, were abducted in the first week of August under the notorious Internal Security Act (ISA)...

Even more martyrs in Palestine as politicians talk in Washington

Naeem-ul Haq

Shawwal 06, 14212001-01-01

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators opened separate talks with US officials in Washington on November 19, the first stage of a new effort to restart the ‘peace process’ that was stalled by the launching of the Al-Aqsa intifada at the end of September.

NATO's new enemy list made in Washington

Waseem Shehzad

Ramadan 13, 14191999-01-01

It was Lawrence Eagleburger, the former US secretary of State, who had predicted that once the ‘cold war’ was over, it would be sorely missed. Astonishing as this admission from a senior official of one of the leading members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)...
