Letter From America: Dutch Election and the Presumed Muslim Problem

The Dutch had their election last Wednesday in which the anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim extremist party – the Freedom Party (PVV) - came out a distant second winning 20 seats in the 150-seat parliament. Its leader Geert Wilders ran on a "de-Islamification" platform, calling for Islamic schools to be closed and the Qur’an and burqa to be banned.

Letter From America: Is there a glimmer of hope in a dysfunctional world?

The USA is in a disarray or so it seems these days with the POTUS attacking the media. On Thursday Trump said that the media "is out of control." Some media "is fantastic," the president allowed. But on the whole, journalism is plagued by "false, horrible, fake reporting."

Letter From America: Trump Administration lies again

It seems that U.S. President Donald Trump has been misspeaking - to put it mildly - more often than not - since at least the presidential election times. Many political analysts assumed that once elected he would modify his positions and behave more responsibly as a president. But old habits die hard, esp. for someone like a 70-year old Trump who continues to prove all those pundits wrong.

Letter From America: Reflections on Bangladesh

I was in Bangladesh around the Christmas time. During this time of the year, many couples get married, which allowed me to attend a few of such events, almost every night I was in either Chittagong or Dhaka. Such events allowed me to connect and chat with some old friends and relatives. As usual, we discussed latest developments in the country; they also wanted to know about president-elect Donald Trump and the upcoming days in the USA under his new administration.

Rohingya Lives Matter: Stop their ethnic cleansing

Myanmar’s government said that the October 9 raids were conducted by the Aqamul Mujahidin organization, which it described as being affiliated with an extremist group. On the other hand, a previously unknown group - Faith Movement - has released a press statement on October 15 in which it claimed itself as the sons of Arakan soil who were compelled by the dire situation that they faced to make their own destiny through uprising, self-determination in self-defense. “We stand as an independent body which is free from all elements of terror in any nature,” the press release stated “that seeks fundamental but legitimate rights and justice for all ARAKANESE including our innocent Rohingyas and OTHER civilians dying from the continuous military assaults.”
