Why Are Some Lebanese Sunni Muslims Becoming
Sympathetic Toward Da'ish (ISIS)?

The extreme' ideology of Da'ish and its embrace of brutal violence have allowed it to quickly attract the attention of millions worldwide and is estimated to have resulted in thousands of recruits, many being from Lebanon.

By Martha Hennessy

Of the estimated six million child laborers in Afghanistan, 60,000 work in Kabul, competing for meager wages. They sell bread and shine shoes on the streets to support their families so that they may eat. The June 2015 CIA World Fact Book reports that it is impossible to estimate the numbers of children out of school, however, in Afghanistan's teen and adult population, the literacy rate is 38.2%. Among females over age 14, only 24.2% can read and write. How can the street children achieve a better life if they remain illiterate?

European/Russian Crisis Created By Washington
By Paul Craig Roberts

The hope is that Washington will cause its European vassals to rebel by pushing them too hard into conflict with Russia. The hope that European countries will be forced into an independent foreign policy also seems to be the basis of the Russian government's strategy. Perhaps intellectuals can help to bring this hope to fruition. If European politicians were to break from Washington's hegemony and instead represent European interests, Washington would be deprived of cover for its war crimes. Washington's aggressions would be constrained by an independent European foreign policy. The breakdown of the neoconservative unipower model would be apparent even to Washington, and the world would become a safer and better place
