What the Islamophobes Won’t Say About the West’s Destruction of the Mideast

The Islamophobia “industry,” dormant for several years, has returned with a vengeance.

The criminal attack by Islamic radicals on the offices of French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo and murder of 17 people, including the magazine’s editor-in-chief, cartoonists, and other staff members, has shocked the world, and rightly so.

Israel’s ‘Dove’ and Hawk in its War against Iran

It has been abundantly clear to those who closely follow the political developments in the Middle East that, for at least two decades, Israeli politics has been moving continuously toward extreme, reactionary right.
