Eurocentrism as a fig leaf, and the art of conjuring in politics

Facts:

On New Year’s Eve 2015, simultaneous coordinated sexual attacks took place against women in public space in about 10 cities, mostly in Germany, but also in Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, and Finland… Several hundred women, to this day, filed a case for sexual attack, robbery, and rape. These attacks were perpetrated by young men of migrant descent (be they immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, or other) from North Africa and the Middle East.

Marieme Helie-Lucas, the Algerian sociologist and socialist-feminist, contributes to discussions on patriarchy, women's rights, and racism following the Cologne attacks.

Comment lutter contre Daech

Juillet 2015

Éditorial de Solidarity, hebdomadaire de l’AWL

L’assassinat d’au moins 39 personnes à Sousse, en Tunisie, tout comme la destruction d’une mosquée chiite au Koweït, le vendredi 26 juin 2015, signale peut-être un changement de stratégie pour Daech (l’Etat islamique en Irak et au Levant).

Du parcours scolaire de «Jihadi John»

Author: 

Stuart Jordan

La révélation que trois militants islamistes importants, y compris Mohammed «Jihadi John» Emwazi, ont fréquenté l’école Quintin Kynaston dans le nord-ouest de Londres, a incité Nicky Morgan, ministre de l’Education, à envisager de mener une enquête sur cet établissement. L’histoire – qui se lit comme une parabole socialiste – se terminera mal pour Morgan, mais il est intéressant de la raconter.

Why and how to oppose Prevent

Author: 

Patrick Murphy

In February 2015 schools, local authorities and colleges in the UK became subject to something called “the Prevent duty”. Under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act, this was a legal duty to “have regard to the need to protect people from being drawn into terrorism”.

Prevent undermines the relationships many public service workers, especially teachers, have with their communities, students and young people, and thus cuts against teachers gaining trust and being able to re-educate young people tempted by terroristic ideologies. Without doing anything significant to stop recruitment to terroristic ideologies, the Prevent strategy introduces or exacerbates a whole set of other problems. It should be withdrawn.

Les origines de l’«Etat islamique»

Author: 

Stephen Wood

Solidarity n° 337, 24 septembre 2014

L’EI (l’Etat islamique, dont le nom complet est l’Etat islamique en Irak et au Levant), a maintenant éclipsé Al-Qaïda sur le plan de la férocité et de la renommée médiatique. Comment cela s’est-il produit ?

L’Etat islamique est souvent présenté comme une création des services de renseignements occidentaux et syriens, qui aurait réussi à rassembler un certain nombre de hauts responsables militaires licenciés après l’invasion de l’Irak et qui auraient bénéficié d’une formation spécialisée dispensée par les Américains.
