Counterterrorism is supposed to let us live without fear. Instead, it's creating more of it | Lyric R Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe 26.1.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
How many ‘terrorism plots’ initiated by FBI informants will the agency interrupt before Congress finally performs some oversight? People think that catching terrorists is just a matter of finding them – but, just as often, terrorists are created by the people doing the chase. While making our film (T)ERROR, which tracks a single counterterrorism sting operation over seven months, we realized that most people have serious misconceptions about FBI counterterrorism efforts. They assume that informants infiltrate terrorist networks and then provide the FBI with information about those networks in order to stop terrorist plots from being carried out. That’s not true in the vast majority of domestic terrorism ...

American Sniper illustrates the west’s morality blind spots 26.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
From Guantánamo Bay to King Abdullah, beneath our talk of defending civilised values lies a deep hypocrisy Say what you like about the film American Sniper, and people have , you have to admire its clarity. It’s about killing. There is no moral arc; no anguish about whether the killing is necessary or whether those who are killed are guilty of anything. “I’m prepared to meet my maker and answer for every shot I took,” says Bradley Cooper, who plays the late Chris Kyle, a navy Seal who was reputedly the deadliest sniper in American history. There is certainly no discursive quandary about whether the Iraq war, in which the killing takes place, is either legal or justified. “I couldn’t give a flying fuck about the Iraqis,” wrote Kyle in his memoir, where he refers to the local people as “savages”. The film celebrates a man who has a talent for shooting people dead when they are not looking and who, apparently, likes his job. “After the first kill, the others come easy,” writes Kyle. “I don’t have to psych ...

Three protesters killed on anniversary of Egypt uprising as tension grows 25.1.2015 DNA: Money
Three people were killed during pro-democracy protests in Egypt and a bomb wounded two policemen on Sunday, the anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak, security sources said. The anniversary is a test of whether Islamists and liberal activists facing one of Egypt's toughest crackdowns have the resolve to challenge the US-backed government once again. Security forces have been stamping out dissent in Egypt since then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted elected president Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in July 2013 after mass protests against his rule. Dozens of protesters were killed during last year's anniversary of the revolt. This time, security forces were taking no chances, fanning out across the capital and elsewhere. Riot police backed by soldiers in armoured vehicles sealed off strategic roads, including those leading to Cairo's Tahrir Square, symbolic heart of the 2011 revolt. A protester died on Sunday from birdshot wounds in Alexandria, Egypt's second ...

Now, protest against Charlie Hebdo cartoons in Kashmir, normal life affected 23.1.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Normal life was affected in Kashmir Valley on Friday due to a strike called by religious and separatist groups to protest against the publishing of 'blasphemous' caricatures in French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Shops, business establishments, offices and petrol pumps were shut in Srinagar and elsewhere in the Valley while government offices and banks witnessed thin attendance, officials said. They said public transport was off the roads in the city and across the major towns in the Valley with only some private cars, cabs and auto-rickshaws plying on a few routes. Work in courts was also affected due to the strike. Mutahida Ulema-e-Ahlisunnat Waljamat, an amalgam of various religious organisations in the Valley, called for a strike to protest the publishing of the "blasphemous" caricatures by the magazine. The strike call was also endorsed by hardline Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who termed the recent reprinting of the sketches of the Prophet in France as "Jewish ...

If France is to build a new identity, it must address its apartheid | Francis Ghiles 22.1.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
Prison and employment figures point towards a failure by French society to integrate minority groups such as Muslims As horrendous as they were, the Paris murders were not a bolt from the blue, nor were they a French 9/11. They may have provoked a show of unity unprecedented since the victory parades of 1945, but they have also unleashed a collective trauma about the state of French identity and specifically the impact of 5 million Muslims on Republican values. France may not be about to collapse, but its leaders and citizens must ask themselves some hard questions. In attempting to analyse these issues, France is caught between the allegedly rational views of the left and the irrational views of the extreme right. The traditional secular anti-religious agenda of the left has mutated into a public discourse about identity, while the anti-immigration obsession of the Front National has become part of mainstream debate. Left and extreme right now secure equal space as contributors to the national ...
