Distinction between Judaism and Zionism


Pro-Israeli groups go to extreme lengths to present Zionism and Judaism as the same. They are not. Critics of Zionism must also be careful not to conflate the two. There are many good and decent Jewish people that are equally appalled at the excesses of Zionism and speak out against them.


Zionists Kill Palestinians and Steal Their Land


Israel’s killing of Palestinians has become so routine that it hardly evokes a yawn. 300 unarmed Palestinian protesters have been killed and another 30,000 or more injured in Gaza since March 2018, but the Zionists intensified attacks on Gaza with missiles and bombs that killed another 34 and injured 110 others in two days last month.


Islamic Iran and the Jewish People


The Zionists and their supporters deliberately misrepresent statements of Iranian officials about Israel. Iran’s leader, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei clarified on November 14 that when Iran calls for the “elimination of Israel”, it is the regime not the Jewish people that it wants removed.

The Threat of Ethno-religious Fascism in India

Shahid Alam

India has been taken over by ethno-religious fascists where there is no room for religious minorities, especially Muslims. Leading figures of the ruling BJP have made this amply clear. The world can only ignore it at its own peril.

Special Reports

India’s Army of Fake News Trolls

Hayy Yaqzan

India has developed an army of fake news trolls to spread misinformation and present a false image that it is a “civilized” country. It is nothing of the sort. India today is ruled by criminals, gangsters and rapists.

Arab Spring: What Went Wrong?

Yusuf Dhia-Allah

Islamic leaders that led the Islamic awakening movements in their respective countries made a strategic blunder: they opted to play within the system and hoped to mould it to their agenda. Instead, they were not only co-opted but easily subverted and crushed by the system.
