    Who Will Challenge Iran?

    If the U.S. and other Western powers decide to bypass the United Nations Security Council on the radioactive question of Iran's nuclear program, the internationalists will accuse them of undermining international law and order. Policymakers should tune them out. The world remains chaotic enough that the substance of international security must still trump procedure.

    • March 21, 2006

      Inner Renewal

      We tend to interpret the failure of liberal parties in recent Arab elections as due to either the process of Islamicisation, or to or to the weakness of the political message put forth by secularists. Yet these interpretations mistakenly reduce a complex social reality that must be explained in detail in order to determine the parameters of a possible secularist revival in Arab politics.
