No to Racism and War! - by Attac and Marx21
We must give good and equal chances to youth for education and training instead of hate campaigns and general suspicion. The left must urge welcoming refugees and opening borders instead of allowing people to drown in the Mediterranean. The Islamic State would not exist without the western wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and now in Syria. The "war on terror" has taken the lives of more than a million persons and destroyed whole societies. Whoever wants to fight IS must battle against the imperi...

Understanding ISIS - Who or What is it? Why does it exist? What does it accomplish? - by Zahir Ebrahim, Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
The new militant “Islamic State” with “caliphate” galore is only the manufactured progression of going from empire's own stateless antediluvian actors playing their scripted “Taliban - Al Qaeda terrorist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world, to stateful antediluvian actors playing their scripted “ISIS - terrorists' expansionist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world. Twenty-first century barbarians...

Economic Crises as Sicknesses and Catastrophes - by S Puehringer, M Schnetzer and P Schreiner
The 2008 financial crisis is often wrongly described as a "state debt crisis" where cause and effect are inverted and economists and the market are released from responsibility. The Austrian economist Stephan Puehringer shows how sickness and catastrophe metaphors dominate discussion. The "patient Germany" has a "serious infection" or the German economy has been "infected." The "American crisis" is described as an "economic Tsunami." How perverse that the social state is dismantled and work...

Somalia: UN Monitoring Group forewarns manipulations of 2016 Election - by Mohamud Uluso
Elections in regular intervals for accountability and opportunity of change of poorly performing political leaders are one of the fundamental pillars of democratic governance. But, the legitimacy of 2016 election in Somalia is hugely compromised in advance by the serious charges of corruption and abuse of power repeatedly leveled against the leaders of the federal government. Therefore, the 2016 election could provoke political and security turmoil.

Capitalism is the Problem - by Ferdinand Scholz and Matthias Kiefer
Prosperity in large part is based on the ecological and social exploitation of poor countries in Africa and Asia. Today 20% of humanity consume 80% of global resources. For several billions people, hunger, sickness, exploitation and low wages are the daily routine while a tiny upper class swims in unfathomable abundance. The poor are played off against each other while the richest hide billions in tax havens. Counter-measures are necessary for a world moving to justice, inclusion and human...

Reviews: Submission as Freedom. Life in Neoliberalism - by R Beyss, S Friedrich and W Gaum
The challenge of neoliberalism took an offensive form in the global North with the victories of Reagan and Thatcher. No coop and no dictatorship were needed to gain mass support for the political ideological hegemony. A neoliberal morality was implemented connected with market conformity, adjustment readiness, self-discipline and active, competitive, entrepreneurial and egoistic life praxis. Stagnation, unemployment and futurelessness demand counter-measures. Is the market self-healing? What...

Flashback to 1995: Introducing the U.S.-Israel-Turkey-Jordan-Egypt alliance at Prime Minister Rabin’s funeral - by Cem Ertür
6 years before the launch of a genocidal, never-ending and ever-expanding “global war on terror” across Asia and Africa, the funeral of the assassinated “hero of peace” Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin proved to be an opportune moment to discreetly reveal an overt military alliance between U.S., Israel, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt against Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya and the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah.
