Will the ICC Investigation Bring Justice for Palestine?

In the past, there have been many attempts at holding accused Israeli war criminals accountable. Particularly memorable is the case of the late Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, (known, among other nicknames, as the ‘Butcher of Sabra and Shatila’) whose victims attempted to try him in a Belgian Court in 2002.

Islamic State Editorial on Mozambique

One of the most noted contrasts between assessing the Islamic State today and the group at the height of its success in Iraq and Syria in 2014-2015 is that the Islamic State has become much more of a global phenomenon, and wherever the Islamic State’s name and banner turn up in some part of the world, suddenly much more global interest arises in the developments in that area.

A Will to Overthrow the United States

The statement “Black Lives Matter” assumes from the start that, for the police, the judicial system and everyone else, black lives do not matter.

Islamic State Sinai Province vs. Jama’at Jund al-Islam: Report from al-Naba’

The jihadist insurgency against the Egyptian army and its local allies in the Sinai region has been dominated since late 2014 by the Islamic State’s ‘Sinai province’, the origins of which primarily lay in the group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis that pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. There has however been at least one other noteworthy jihadist group present in the Sinai region: Jama’at Jund al-Islam (Group of the Soldiers of the Islam), but its own media output has been infrequent and it is clearly much weaker than the Islamic State’s Sinai province/affiliate. Jama’at Jund al-Islam has appeared to be more aligned with the Islamic State’s rival al-Qa’ida.
