Heather Jeffrey | Posted 17.07.2016 | UK
Heather Jeffrey

Those criticising the FCO need to think about this first attack and maybe even change their discourse. Whilst I am sure Tunisia will find the coming year financially difficult, I am less sure that the help they need would ever arrive with its bags packed of suntan lotion, swimming costumes and flip flops.

Bombing Isis Won't Stop It

Dan Smith OBE | Posted 03.07.2016 | UK
Dan Smith OBE

It is as easy to insist on a political settlement in Syria or in Libya as it is to talk of crushing ISIS. In Syria and Iraq, ISIS gives every indication of denying the legitimacy of compromise, so the concept of settlement would be out of bounds. In Libya, where ISIS is present but far from dominant, there could (and, for their own self-interest, should) be more possibility of arriving at an initial settlement between the Dawn and Dignity rivals.

What's in a Name?

Robin Lustig | Posted 03.07.2016 | UK
Robin Lustig

Islamic State, Cameron says, is neither Islamic nor a State. He's right - on the other hand, nor was the Irish Republican Army ever an army. So what? A name is no more than what someone chooses to be called. Does he really think that a single one of IS's recruits was attracted to its ranks because they were misled by its name?
