The Difference Between ISIS and Israel

(By Huseyin Abudharr Ali)

Israel’s Prime Minister has compared the Hamas party in Palestine to ISIS, claiming they are both ‘Islamic Terrorist’ organisations. I thought it only fair to compare Israel to ISIS as well, just to clear up any misunderstanding about whether the two are alike and show why ISIS is evil whilst Israel isn’t. Continue reading

Greece Vs The Troika & the British Left

(By Huseyin Abudharr Ali)

When SYRIZA won the elections British socialists celebrated, including certain parties who had been attacking Alexis Tsipras only a year earlier when he stopped in London on his way back from Hugo Chavez’s funeral.

(By Huseyin Abudharr Ali)

A state that went from having the best standard of living in Africa, the Muslim World and probably the entire globe in 2010 to suffering the worst civil war in the World by 2012. My grandfather who had right-wing sympathies moved to Libya and would later say to my father: “That Qadhafi may be a communist” my grandfather considered any socialist a communist “But he is great for his people”. In this article I will try to explain what happened in Libya and who was Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Qadhafi. Continue reading

British Parliament Finally Recognises Palestine In Largely Symbolic Gesture

(By Richard Sudan)

The British parliament has voted overwhelmingly to recognise Palestine as a state, although despite the numbers of MPs who voted in favour of the motion, it is unlikely to force David Cameron to change official policy towards Palestine and the government’s unrelenting support of Israel.
