[ICG logo. Image from crisisgroup.org]

[The following report was issued by International Crisis Group on 30 November 2012.] Turkey's Kurdish Impasse: The View from Diyarbakır Executive Summary As Turkey’s biggest Kurdish-majority city and province, Diyarbakır is critical to any examination of the country’s Kurdish problem and of the insurgent PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party). The armed conflict has deteriorated in the past year and a half to its worst level in over a decade, with increased political friction and violence leading to the deaths of at least 870 people since June 2011. While as many Kurds live in western Turkey, particularly in Istanbul, as in the south east, grievances that underlie support ...

الهراء اللبناني مجدّداً

[

 كتابات نايلة تويني لا تمت للسياسة بصلة. هي أشبه بالهراء والأكاذيب التخويفية التي سمعناها منذ صغرنا، لاسيما في المجتمعات المسيحية المغلقة عن الفلسطينيين. مثل، اًن تقول إحدى الأساطير اللبنانية إن الفلسطينيين يريدون احتلال لبنان لتحويله إلى وطن بديل لهم، غير مدركين غباء هذه الكذبة التي تتناقض مع تمسك اللاجئين بحق العودة وتمسكهم بلهجتهم وخصوصيتهم في بلد لم يمنحهم أدنى حقوق المواطنة. تقول أسطورة أخرى إن لبنان الجميل الأخضر الصغير "المعتّر" قد ذهب ضحية موقعه الجغرافي الذي حوله إلى ساحة حرب للآخرين. وإن كنا كلبنانيين قد انشغلنا في السنين الماضية بخلافاتنا وتسليحنا وتخوين بعضنا البعض وشن حروب  شوارع بين الحين والآخر أنستنا بأننا الضحايا الجميلين ...

An Open Letter of Response to CRIF (Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France)

[Logo for CRIF's upcoming convention, 13 January 2013. Image from crif.org]

An Open Letter of Response to CRIF (Conseil Représentatif des Institutions Juives de France): I am shocked and saddened that your organization would label me as an anti-Semite and self-hating Jew. It is utterly defamatory, and such allegations are entirely based on distortions of what I believe and what I have done. To confuse my criticisms of Israel with self-hatred of myself as a Jew or with hatred of Jews is a calumny. I have long been a critic of American foreign policy but that does not make me anti-American; it is freedom of conscience and its integral link with freedom of expression that is the core defining reality of a genuinely democratic ...

New Texts Out Now: Marwan M. Kraidy, The Revolutionary Body Politic

[Cover of

Marwan M. Kraidy, “The Revolutionary Body Politic: Preliminary Thoughts on a Neglected Medium in the Arab Uprisings.” Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication 5.1 (2012). Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this article? Marwan Kraidy (MK): I received an invitation from the editors to write an essay with a brutal time frame (if I recall correctly, an author had dropped out two weeks before the copy deadline, and I was asked to fill in). But that was just technical. What really made me write the article was that I had been preoccupied with the implications of Alia al-Mahdy’s action for several days, because it came on the heels of other performances in the Arab ...

Orientalist Feminism Rears its Head in India

[Placard of a protestor in Delhi, showing their anger against recent gang rape in Delhi. Image by Ramesh Lalwani.]

The brutal rape and murder of a young medical student in Delhi by a gang of young men, followed closely by the suicide of a Delhi rape victim who was pressured into marrying her rapist by police, has provoked international criticism of the Indian government and widespread protests across India by a diverse strata of Indian society. In the melee of protests with the government, the Indian state has used tear gas and live ammunition, killing a reporter. Next to the police's horrible management of rape cases, as well as the protests themselves, Indian leaders have produced a litany of insensitive remarks about the case. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ...

المواطنة و"دولة فلسطين" الجديدة

في محاولته الثانية للحصول على اعتراف الأمم المتحدة بفلسطين كدولة، طلب رئيس السلطة الوطنية الفلسطينية، محمود عباس، في التاسع والعشرين من تشرين الثاني (نوفمبر)، 2012 من الجمعية العامة أن تقبل طلب منح فلسطين صفة دولة مراقب غير عضو، وقد وافقت أغلبية ساحقة من الدول الأعضاء بلغ عددها 138 دولة على الطلب. في الوقت الحاضر، فإن تأثير هذا التصويت يعد رمزياً إلى حد كبير، ولكنه يعني بالفعل أن "فلسطين" هي الأراضي الفلسطينية التي احتلتها إسرائيل عام 1967. والآن، وعوضاً عن معنى الشعب الذي تبرزه كلمة ...
