Comments Off on Rula Ghani: Preaching for Christianity, Israel and Empire

In the name of liberating Afghan women several American feminist organizations joined forces with various American Zionist groups (including the Zionist “neocons”), manufacturers of weapons, and other American militarist groups to invade Afghanistan in response to the 9/11 incident. There is a substantial volume of academic and popular literature dealing with this general subject. This […]

Comments Off on “Take It Easy on U.S. Imperialism”: Theocratizing the Middle East

The letter signed by “Mehdi Mohammadzadeh” (MM) in the March/April 2013 issue of Anthropology News contains a number of ethnographic, political and ethical issues which I wish to address.  The letter is heavily tinted with strains of occidentosis (Farsi, gharbzadagi). MM has either misunderstood C. K. Mahmood’s comment in AN 53(9), 2012 or is interested […]

Pro-Israel Zionist ideology has severed the nerve for critical awareness among Americans. This masterfully produced ideology constantly and tactfully manipulates the state apparatus of the United States especially its military, political, and economic resources for the benefit of Israel. The Israeli lobby, through its presence in all strategic locations of the American political and civil […]
