Isis Is No More an 'Islamic State' Than the Nazis Were Socialists

Will Black | Posted 13.03.2015 | UK
Will Black

The terrorist network that calls itself the 'Islamic State' has been almost as audacious - some might say ridiculous - with its name changes over the years... The simple fact is that it is NOT Islamic and it is NOT a state.

Death Is the Ultimate Intimacy: The Media Were Wrong to Show Video of Charlie Hebdo Policeman Ahmed Merabet's Murder

Asa Cusack | Posted 10.03.2015 | UK
Asa Cusack

Ahmed Merabet's death is not the first I've witnessed on screen, but it has troubled me in ways that other deaths have not. Warnings of "distressing scenes" have it backwards. This is not about us as viewers. It's about him as a human being.

Farid Panjwani

It is time to choose between frenzy and rationality; between revenge and justice; between short term political mileage and long term solution; between national interests and cosmopolitanism. Our choice will determine the shape of the twenty-first century. Perhaps remembering that it is a tale of two cities' pain - one in the heart of a Muslim society and the other in the heart of the West - can help make the right choices.

Karl Davis | Posted 09.03.2015 | UK
Karl Davis

We need to get angry. We need to get involved. More than anything, we need to get angry at the right people. We need to stand together, and not allow ourselves to be hoodwinked into being angry at Mosques, when we should be angry at the fat cats of Threadneedle Street, and at Parliament

John Sargeant

If publications reprint the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, it is not putting oil to the flame. The fundamentalists do that for themselves. Rather, we are showing that freely expressing our words and opinions are the lifeblood of humanity. They surge through us, they are a part of who we are.
