تأملات فلسطينية في الأيديولوجيا السياسية الأمريكية

[

 "أدرك" بعض الفلسطينيين مؤخراً أن الولايات المتحدة منحازة إلى جانب إسرائيل. فقد اختفى الحديث اللطيف المُنمَّق الذي كان ينطق به الرئيس الأميركي باراك أوباما، وذهبت النشوة التي أعقبت خطابه "لتمهيد الأرضية" في جامعة القاهرة.  و لكن هناك أيضا من "اكتشف" فجأة أهمية الدور الأميركي وأنه لابد من التواصل مع الإدارة الأميركية حتى ولو عبر رسائل موجهة للرئيس الأمريكي الذي يرفض قراءتها! باختصار... اكتشفنا أننا قد عدنا إلى المربع الأول. تستند فلسفة الهيمنة السياسية الأميركية إلى إطلاق الحكم على الفكرة انطلاقاً من نتائجها وليس مسبباتها.  ويتركز الاهتمام على الصلة بين صواب التصريحات وبين إمكانية تطبيقها العملي بمعيار واحد فقط: كيف ستعمل تلك ...

Drug Trafficking in Northwest Africa: The Moroccan Gateway

[Madrid regional government delagate Cristina Cifuentes, right and the chief of Spain's national police force, Ignacio Cosido second right, look at part of a haul of hashish and marijuana in Madrid, Wednesday, 26 December 2012. Spanish police have seized eleven metric tons of hashish smuggled from Morocco on trucks with tanks rigged to hide the drugs. Thirty five people were arrested in what was described as the breakup of a major smuggling ring that fed the European market. Authorities said in a statement Wednesday that the hashish was sent to a Madrid suburb for distribution to countries including Belgium, Britain, France and Holland. Image from Paul White/AP Photo.]

Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, West Africa has become a pivotal platform and crossroads for terrorism, drug and human trafficking, crime and insurgency. However, in analyzing drug trafficking in the Sahel, it is paramount to also look at the role and geographical location of Morocco, where Moroccan drug barons are increasingly linked to their African and Latin American counterparts. Indeed, the Moroccan kingdom plays an important role between the African continent and Europe. The country occupies a key geostrategic location and is a gateway between the Mediterranean region and the rest of Africa. Morocco also provides a passage to mainland Europe from ...

Outlawing The January 25 Revolution (VIDEO)

[19 November 2013, on Mohamed Mohamoud Street, protesters gather to demonstrate against Ministry of Interior and repeat demands of January 25 Revolution. The banner showing pictures of former presidents and officials reads:

This new video from the Mosireen collective discusses and condemns the inclusion of military trials for civilians in Egypt’s draft constitution, due to be put to a referendum in January 2014. The video highlights the police’s violent response to a protest organized by the “No to Military Trials” campaign in Cairo on 26 November. Juxtaposing old and new footage, it places this crackdown in the context of previous attempts to restrict freedom of assembly and labor rights in Egypt, whether under the leadership of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (2011-2), the presidency of Mohamed Morsi (2012-3), or indeed under the emergency laws of Hosni Mubarak (1981-2011).

القراءة المبكرة

هنري ميلر  لم أبدأ بإعادة قراءة كتب معيّنة إلا في السنوات القليلة الماضية. أستطيع أن أتذكّر بدقّة الكتب الأولى التي أفردتُها من أجل إعادة القراءة: ولادة المأساة، الزوج الأبدي، أليس في بلاد العجائب،الطقوس الإمبراطورية الفاحشة، وكتاب هامسن ألغاز.إن هامسن، كما قلتُ في غالب الأحيان، هو أحد المؤلفين الذين أثّروا فيّ بقوة ككاتب. لم يجذبني كتاب من كتبه مثلما فعل كتاب ألغاز. ففي تلك الفترة التي تحدثتُ عنها من قبل، حين بدأت بفصل مؤلفيّ المفضّلين كي أكتشف قوة السحر لديهم، كان الكتّاب الذين ركزت عليهم هم هامسن أولاً، ثم آرثر ماتشن، ثم توماس مان. وحين أعدتُ قراءة ولادة المأساةأتذكر أنني ذُهلتُ من استخدام نيتشه السحري للغة. ومنذ بضع سنوات فقط، وبفضل إيفا سيكليانو، أسكرني هذا ...

الأبارتهايد ونقاشات منع التجوّل

The Whispers of WhatsApp: Beyond Facebook and Twitter in the Middle East

Like many in Beirut this summer, I found out about one of the recent bombings from a WhatsApp message on my mobile phone. I received a single word text from a friend: infijar (explosion).

My friend then forwarded this image to me along with his one word report. Infijar is a heavy and all too familiar word to the ...
