    Madrassas: knowledge or the 'shade of swords'

    • Husain Haggani
    • April 21, 2004
    • The Daily Star

    Madrassas are a major source of radical influence on the thinking of the world's 1 billion Muslims. Rather than focus narrowly on madrassa reform, as the U.S. has done, the Muslim world needs to be encouraged to embrace modern education and undertake ijtihad (mental exertion to find solutions to problems) on its own.

    Think Again: Condi's 'Safe' Fantasy

    U.S. counterterrorism policy and the foreign policy to which it is connected are still flawed. That may be the reason why the number of terrorist attacks worldwide has actually increased, instead of decreasing, after the Bush administration launched the global war against terrorism.

    Greater Middle East Initiative: Off to a False Start

    The Bush administration is preparing to launch a "Greater Middle East Initiative" at the G-8 summit meeting in June. The time is indeed opportune for engagement on regional reform, but as planned, the initiative fails to establish a basis for genuine partnership and does little to address the real challenges of Arab democratization.

    U.S. and European leaders want to see greater freedom, and democracy in the Middle East. Americans see this as the crucial battleground in the war on terror; Europeans want their southern neighbors to be stable and well-governed, to stem the flows of illegal migration and organized crime. Working with local partners for peaceful democratic regime change is the best way to achieve these goals.

    Demon in the Cellar

    American nationalism today imperils America's global leadership and its success in the war against terrorism. More than any other factor, it is this nationalism which divides the US from a post-nationalist Europe. And insofar as it has become mixed up with a chauvinist strain of Israeli nationalism, it also plays a disastrous role in US relations with the Muslim world.

    Great Distance but Great Impact: Pakistani and Libyan Development Affect North Korea Nuclear Issue

    Recent events in Pakistan and Libya are directly affecting the Bush Administration's approach to North Korea's nuclear program. The disclosure of A.Q. Khan's elaborate efforts to uranium enrichment and nuclear weapons technology and the decision by Col. Khadaffi to abandon his WMD programs have reinforced the Bush administration's perception that their tough approach is paying dividends.

    WMD in Iraq: Evidence and Implications

    A groundbreaking report details what the U.S. and international intelligence communities understood about Iraq's weapons programs before the war and outlines policy reforms to improve threat assessments, deter transfer of WMD to terrorists, strengthen the UN weapons inspection process, and avoid politicization of the intelligence process.

    The Role Of Islamic Groups in the Political Reform Process

    Participants from across the Middle East joined U.S. and European scholars and policy-makers at a three-day conference in Kuwait, to discuss the role of Islamist groups in Arab political reform. While suspicious of the U.S., most participants professed support for democratic principles and expressed interest in continuing the dialogue.
