Malek Chebel, Rule of Law and Islam

Malek Chebel, Rule of Law and Islam

During last week's conversation between Marco Pannella and Valter Vecellio, the Radical leader repeatedly spoke of intellectual and activist Malek Chebel. Chebel is a writer, anthropologist and philosopher of Algerian origin; an illuminated intellectual in the Muslim Arab World. Chebel says that Muslims living in Europe should go through a liberal revolution. Islam must learn to debate with itself, and clarify on what it can offer to others today, not only on what it can take; the vocabulary used to talk of religion must be reconsidered.

At 90 years old, I become a criminal

At 90 years old, I become a criminal

On Sunday, June 7, I will turn 90 years old; I was born on another Sunday, 7 June 1925. It seems impossible, I cannot manage to convince myself... But, when I look back and see all those events and persons, I believe that I lived 90 times 365 days, plus 22 days for each leap year: 32.872 days.

I have alway been a calm, law-abiding citizen: I respect the rules,  I pay my taxes honestly and on time. As a result I have been called an example by some, and ridiculed by others, as is both understandable and normal.

After the elections in Turkey

Two years on from Gezi Park anti-government protests, there is a new leading player in Turkish political scene. On Sunday June 7, pro-islamic Justice and Development Party (AKP) remained first party of Turkey but after 13 years it has lost its parliament majority.

The most relevant event is that for the first time in Turkey’s Republic history a pro-Kurdish and libertarian leftist party, Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) of Selahattin Demirtaş, has entered the Parliament passing the high 10% threshold.

Erdoğan: «Conquest is to hoist the Islamic flag over Jerusalem»

Erdoğan: «Conquest is to hoist the Islamic flag over Jerusalem»

Turkish Parliament elections are scheduled for next Sunday June 7. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is afraid that, after 13 years in government, his party (AKP) would be weakened as a result of the elections. In order to regain popular support, Erdoğan is now playing the nationalist card, he is trying to radicalize the political spectrum and to deepen ethnic and religious cleavages in order to fuel feelings still persisting in the most underdeveloped strata of Turkish population.
