The Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Saba'aneh kicked off his book tour in New York last night in an appearance at which he said he had no choice but to become a political artist. Below is video of his appearance, titled Life & Prison in Palestine: A Cartoonist's Eye. It begins with an excellent speech by Seth Tobocman (introduced by Ben Katchor). Saba'aneh says that Palestinian speakers usually begin in the Muslim tradition by praising Allah. But: I should start in the name of 1,500 Palestinian prisoners, they are on hunger strike in Israeli prisons... Karim Younis is the oldest Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jail, and Shadi Farah, the youngest prisoner .... His age is 13 years old now.. And that's why I should start with them. Saba'aneh told his story last night. As a boy in Kuwait, he drew pictures of his homeland, Palestine. He later moved to Palestine to go to school, and when Ariel Sharon visited the Haram-al-Sharif in September 2000, the school shut down and Saba'aneh saw violence for the first time.

One of Street Fighter V 's latest DLC stages, Thailand Temple Hideout (from Street Fighter II ), was pulled off the marketplace because of its background music yesterday. The music behind the Buddhist-themed stage contained Islamic prayers not something Capcom intended. The Islamic prayers in the stage's background music were translated by a Muslim Redditor who goes by Venom44 . According to them, the lyrics include references to Allah and the line "By the name of the God, the most merciful." Capcom did not say that the specific religion was the reason why the stage was pulled, just that the music contained "unintentional religious references." It was likely pulled due to incongruity between the Buddhist imagery and the Islamic music. Read more... More about Street Fighter , Street Fighter V , Capcom , Esports , and Gaming

Here is Jewish Voice for Peace's explanation of why it invited Odeh to speak at its national conference a month ago. The statement addresses the charges against her. We are eager to hear from Odeh, a feminist leader in the Palestinian and Arab-American community in Chicago, precisely because she has survived decades of Israeli and US government persecution and oppression, and also because she lives and breathes the essential work of community organizing–having spent her life as both a lawyer and organizer for the empowerment of Arab women. The accusations against Odeh stem from a context of long-standing anti-Palestinian and anti-Muslim persecution by both the Israeli state and the United States, policies which are escalating under the Trump administration. In the 50 years of Israeli occupation, an estimated 750,000 Palestinians have been detained by Israeli security forcesconstituting approximately 20% of the total Palestinian population.

'” The torture worsened. She was taken into one room at one point and had electric wires attached to her chest, abdomen, genitals, and legs and arms. She was told by interrogators she would be killed with electricity “if she did not tell them everything.” Other prisoners heard her as she was tortured by electricity, and they were told they would face the same treatment if they did not “provide information.” None of this appears in the CNN report. The possibility that Israeli military forces tortured her to obtain a confession is not even contemplated. It does, however, mirror the profile written on Horowitz’s website aimed at fueling hysteria toward Muslim and Arab immigrants. CNN even ties her to the Popular Front For the Liberation Of Palestine by referencing documents from prosecutors. CNN claims it was unable to reach Michael Deutsch, Odeh’s defense attorney, for comment, but he was outside of the courthouse following the plea hearing.

believed he'd been hoodwinked by the organisation and had only gone there because he thought this was the true way of living as a proper devout Muslim. He also said there were many others, not necessarily Britons, but lots of other people from around the world from the Middle East and Europe who he had seen and interacted with who felt the same way. Once they got there and lived.

I argue for it to make sure that we talk about Britain's Muslim communities, we don't see them as a monolithic block. That is true. The Muslim community is more diverse.

When we have had that debate and we have a set of British ideals to which we can all sign up, that includes government. If we say we believe in X, we should be doing X. But is there not a continuing problem with the growing isolation of some Muslim.
