Second Saudi execution after Ramadan pause 28.7.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
Saudi Arabia beheaded one of its citizens for drug trafficking on Tuesday, in the second execution after a pause for Ramadan. Saif al-Hadissane was found guilty of smuggling a large amount of hashish. He was executed in the Al-Ahsa region of eastern Saudi Arabia, the interior ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. SPA had reported no executions during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and the Eid al-Fitr holiday which followed it from July 17. The latest beheading brings to 104 the number of executions in the kingdom this year, a sharp increase on the 87 recorded during the whole of 2014, according to AFP tallies. This year's figure is still below the record 192 which human rights group Amnesty International said took place in 1995. Human Rights Watch has accused Saudi authorities of waging a "campaign of death" by executing more people in the first six months of this year than in all of last year. Echoing the concerns of other activists, the New York-based group said it ...

'Extremist is the secular word for heretic': the Hizb ut-Tahrir leader who insists on his right to speak 24.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

As David Cameron lays out a counter-extremism strategy that he calls ‘the struggle of our generation’, the voice of the ‘extremists’ has been missing. So what does Dr Abdul Wahid really believe?

Since the Islamic State atrocity in Tunisia David Cameron has made a series of statements pointing the finger at those he calls extremists. These people, says the prime minister, refuse to subscribe to British values such as free speech and the rule of law.

Cameron does not assert that all extremists are terrorists. He does, however, warn that extremists form a pool where terrorism can flourish and from which killers emerge. This week, in a headline-grabbing speech, he laid out a counter-extremism strategy described as “the struggle of our generation”.

How to think about Islamic State 24.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Islamic State is often called ‘medieval’ but is in fact very modern – a horrific expression of a widespread frustration with a globalised western model that promises freedom and prosperity to all, but fails to deliver Violence has erupted across a broad swath of territory in recent months: wars in Ukraine and the Middle East , suicide bombings in Xinjiang , Nigeria and Turkey , insurgencies from Yemen to Thailand , massacres in Paris, Tunisia and the American south. Future historians may well see such uncoordinated mayhem as commencing the third – and the longest and the strangest – of world wars. Certainly, forces larger and more complex than in the previous two wars are at work; they outrun our capacity to apprehend them, let alone adjust their direction to our benefit. The early post cold war consensus – that bourgeois democracy has solved the riddle of history, and a global capitalist economy will usher in worldwide prosperity and peace – lies in tatters. But no plausible alternatives of political ...

Salman Rushdie on Islam: 'We have learned the wrong lessons' 23.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Satanic Verses, if published today, would not be defended by those who protested against Charlie Hebdo’s PEN award, says author Salman Rushdie believes that if The Satanic Verses had been published today, the members of the literary elite who rounded on Charlie Hebdo in the wake of the French satirical magazine winning a PEN prize for courage would not have defended him. In an interview with the French magazine L’Express , the novelist said that “it seems we have learned the wrong lessons” from the experience of The Satanic Verses, which saw a fatwa issued against him by Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989, sending him into hiding. “Instead of realising that we need to oppose these attacks on freedom of expression, we thought that we need to placate them with compromise and renunciation,” he ...
