Bernie Sanders, Israel & Palestine

I know the dude is doing his best to speak on almost all issues of popular will, would be admirable to see him challenge US foreign policy on Middle East, especially Palestinian human rights. I think that would help bridge the gap between minority groups and non-minorities on the left, that is, a shift inContinue reading “Bernie Sanders, Israel & Palestine”

The List Goes On

Political and religious labels are misleading. Depending on the context, these labels change in meaning. In one context, such as Maoist China or Spain during the Civil War, republican might be defined as communist, whereas in the United States, the modern Republican is essentially a neo-conservative. In France, Republicans are centrists and the other major alternativeContinue reading “The List Goes On”

Secularizing the Conversation on the Occupation of Palestine

Secularizing the conversation on the Palestinian genocide, actually threatens the pro-Israeli argument. It has to. Israel, by nature, is a religious entity — despite efforts by any spokesperson to suggest otherwise. Secularizing the conversation on the conflict between Palestinian nationalism & international occupation, deems Israel a theocratic apartheid-state. Secularization, by nature, requires religious & cultural diversity, egalitarianism andContinue reading “Secularizing the Conversation on the Occupation of Palestine”

Faux-News: Balancing News Coverage in the US Media-Mainstream

The reason why most immigrants to the US are less inclined to believe lies on US media channels is because they have more experience in the outer world. That is why when US media outlets inflame the crimes of violent groups like al Qaeda and ISIS, it almost makes us laugh because in our eyes,Continue reading “Faux-News: Balancing News Coverage in the US Media-Mainstream”

On Democratic Socialism & Hip-Hop’s Place in America Today

Recent tension between hip-hop artists Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea inspired me to address the issue, and how the undertones resonate loudly in America, with associations to systems of cultural repression such as racism, jim crow, the prison-industrial complex, corporate hoarding and finally US foreign policy; and ultimately how all of these issues are in actuality theContinue reading “On Democratic Socialism & Hip-Hop’s Place in America Today”

CRITICAL ANALYSIS: One Nation, Divided Under Law (The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict & Ferguson)

First, Israel is already a Jewish state, and second, from the perspective of its Arab citizens, it’s a state that’s already seen as a preferential rather than full democracy. And passage of this gratuitous and provocative new law will only widen the growing and still irreconcilable gap between the two. But now in the highlyContinue reading “CRITICAL ANALYSIS: One Nation, Divided Under Law (The Palestinian-Israeli Conflict & Ferguson)”

A Q&A With Angela Davis on Black Power, Feminism and the Prison-Industrial Complex | The Nation

A Q&A With Angela Davis on Black Power, Feminism and the Prison-Industrial Complex | The Nation. “Moreover, the most profitable sector of the private-prison business is composed of immigrant detention centers. One can therefore understand why the most repressive anti-immigrant legislation in the United States was drafted by private-prison companies…”

Republican Socialism: Organized Vanity

Republicans are the biggest socialists. They claim to be self-reliant but in fact, it seems to me that if you are a republican you get a lot of social perks. During my tenure at the office of Senator Marco Rubio, I got 25 calls a day from conservative constituents complaining about Obama’s socialism while simultaneouslyContinue reading “Republican Socialism: Organized Vanity”
