On 22 February this year, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) issued an opinion from the Investigation and Identification Team (IIT) that found ISIL* responsible for the use of chemical weapons (CW) in the Syrian town of Mari in September 2015.

“Rabindra Mohan (Kar), a revolutionary up to his fingertips in all circumstances, lived and died in complete obscurity. No monument has been erected in his memory, nor any will be erected in future, I am sure, but he was a greater and nobler man than the men who make front page news in our country.” This is what Manmath Nath Gupta wrote in one of his books o...

The wars in Ukraine and Gaza have led several leading politicians to compare the current period with the 1930s, and to raise the possibility of a World War. Are these fears justified, or are they just fear-mongering? To answer this question, we’re going to summarize events that are unknown to everyone, though well known to specialists. We shall do so dispass...

Generations in war-wracked Palestine, Syria, and Yemen have little, if anything, to look forward to. Moreover, discontent is mounting and could explode anytime in countries like Jordan, Egypt, and Iran. Palestine is a pressure cooker. Gazan youth has known little else than two decades of wars and siege. Beyond the trauma of the latest six-month-old war, Gaza...

I needed some fresh mindful thinking on Türkiye a paradigm shift after the recent Turkish local elections, and what they mean, if anything. It is now clear that Türkiye’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has suffered an unprecedented defeat that represents more than an election defeat, and a win for the so-called more “progressive” West.

Israel violated numerous international laws and norms on April 5, 2024, through its multiple war crimes. It attacked Iran’s diplomatic building in Syria, targeted staff of a US NGO, the World Central Kitchen (WCK), working in Gaza, and destroyed Al-Shifa hospital, all on the same day. The Israeli Defense Forces have been incessantly committing war crimes in ...

Muhammad Manassara walked in late February into a gas station near the West Bank settlement of Eli. Armed with an automatic weapon, Mr. Manassara killed two people before he was shot dead by the owner of a restaurant at the station, the site of the killing last summer of four Israelis.

Europe is in a state of desperation; the continent is losing in Ukraine despite the ‘mighty’ strength of NATO; and European leaders are now vowing for a ‘stronger’ response, including via sending their own forces to combat Russian military forces in Ukraine. Will this decision, if it is ultimately taken, bring any meaningful change to Ukraine’s slow fall is,...

For the past six months, US Ambassador to the Security Council Linda Thomas-Greenfield has been trying to buy as much time as possible for the IDF to win in Palestine. One veto after another, she’s hoping that the West will not suffer a third defeat in Gaza, after those in Syria and Ukraine. However, on December 22, it finally recognized the need for humanit...

The BRICS countries are certainly strengthening their positions on the global stage. And this, both on the geoeconomic and geopolitical levels. Without regard to the opinion of the world minority represented by Western regimes and certain others. Today, these processes are forced to be recognized by a number of analysts in the United States and Japan, while ...

Pakistan raises the issue of Kashmir on all conceivable occasions. Shahbaz Sharif raised it in his inaugural speech as the second-time elected prime minister. However, Pakistan remains silent on the situation within the POK and Gilgit-Baltistan. The region has been in ferment for more than a year. In May 2023, people started a sit-in against rising flour and...

It was nauseating to read that a candidate for West Bengal’s Krishnanagar Lok Sabha constituency, Rajmata Amrita Roy, defended her ancestor Raja Krishnachandra Roy for siding with the British during the Battle of Plassey in 1757. She reportedly said, “If he had not done that, would Hinduism have survived here? Would Sanatana Dharma have survived? No. Then, h...
