#NeverForget: Sixteen Years into the “War on Terror” and Institutionalized Islamophobia Lives on

[Image from Maha Hilal.]

September 2017 marked the sixteenth anniversary of the start of the “war on terror.” While hashtags such as #NeverForget and #September11th were trending on Twitter, there was little mention of the victims of post-9/11 counter-terrorism laws and policies – namely, Muslims or those racialized as Muslims. This is because the term “post-9/11 world” is meant to center on the devastation and destruction faced by the United States on 11 September 2001. It does not acknowledge how the United States adopted a hegemonic posture of victimhood that allowed it (and still allows it) to legitimize the most brutal of policies, under the guise of “fighting terrorism.” President Donald ...

New Texts Out Now: Bashir Saade, Hizbullah and the Politics of Remembrance: Writing Nations

Bashir Saade, Hizbullah and the Politics of Remembrance: Writing Nations. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Bashir Saade (BS): This book is based on my PhD dissertation and the research I had done at the time, from 2006 to 2011. I started after the July 2006 war, which was the trigger for an already growing interest in understanding the phenomenon of Hizbullah. I was mostly interested in questioning the way Hizbullah had been studied so far, and I was not satisfied with any of the paradigms that plagued the literature on the subject. My project was two-fold. One was to understand Hizbullah and the other which ...

“Til Sect Do You Part?” On Sectarianism and Intermarriage in Lebanon

In August 2017, a Christian man and a Muslim woman (Boutros and Marwa) made headlines when they married in Lebanon. Why? One might assume that the interreligious nature of the couple prompted this media attention. However, that was far from the case. In my current research on Lebanese social responses to interreligious and intersectarian marriages/long-term relationships, I have had no difficulty locating people to interview. Mixed couples are more common than people often imagine, and exist to varying extents across generations, classes, and communities. As such, it is unlikely that a mixed marriage would make the news. No, what warranted media attention in this case ...

Roundtable: Harold Wolpe’s Intellectual Agenda and Writing on Palestine

Introduction (by Max Ajl) In a well-known programmatic note on the relationship of theoretical work to politics, Harold Wolpe, a South African sociologist, anti-apartheid activist, briefly political prisoner, then exile, rejected two opposing positions on intellectual labor. The first was the assertion of complete autonomy, in the sense that research ought to simply emerge organically from the will and whims of the intellectual. The second was a stance of simple justification for the party line. Instead ...
