Facebook Twitter

[Below is part 2 of Noam Chomsky’s essay, “Masters of Mankind,” excerpted from his new book, Who Rules the World? Frankreichs Außenminister: Der Krieg in Syrien seit langem in London geplant. Why are black people turning to Islam? Black conversion or "reversion" to Islam is not new; it has been taking place in the African diaspora since time immemorial.

Why are black people turning to Islam?

However, I looked deeper into the phenomenon to find out why a growing number of Black Britons, especially younger ones, are embracing Islam. Although I am not a Muslim, I have always been interested in Islam – three of my all-time heroes, Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X and Jamaican singer Prince Buster were Muslim converts, and I was intrigued by the way Islam inspired all three to transcend their respective vocations to become icons.

FULLTEXT01. If the Libyan war was about saving lives, it was a catastrophic failure. As the most hopeful offshoot of the "Arab spring" so far flowered this week in successful elections in Tunisia, its ugliest underside has been laid bare in Libya.

If the Libyan war was about saving lives, it was a catastrophic failure

That's not only, or even mainly, about the YouTube lynching of Gaddafi, courtesy of a Nato attack on his convoy. The grisly killing of the Libyan despot after his captors had sodomised him with a knife, was certainly a war crime. But many inside and outside Libya doubtless also felt it was an understandable act of revenge after years of regime violence. Perhaps that was Hillary Clinton's reaction, when she joked about it on camera, until global revulsion pushed the US to call for an investigation.

The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» And «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles.

Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad.

A study released last year by Linda J. Noam Chomsky: The US, Not Iran, Poses Greatest Threat to World Peace. In a speech Saturday at The New School in New York, Noam Chomsky explained why he believes the US poses the greatest threat to world peace. "[The United States] is a rogue state, indifferent to international law and conventions, entitled to resort to violence at will. … Take, for example, the Clinton Doctrine - namely, the United States is free to resort to unilateral use of military power, even for such purposes as to ensure uninhibited access to key markets, energy supplies and strategic resources - let alone security or alleged humanitarian concerns. And adherence to this doctrine is very well confirmed and practiced, as need hardly be discussed among people willing to look at the facts of current history.

" Chomsky also explained why he believes the US and its closest allies, namely Saudi Arabia and Israel, are undermining prospects for peace in the Middle East.
