(How White Christian Europeans carved out new countries from old nations - Editor, Vigilonline)

Lebanon was created out of the Sykes-Picot Agreement. This agreement between Britain and France reshaped the collapsed Ottoman Empire south of Turkey into the states we know today -- Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, and to some extent the Arabian Peninsula as well. For nearly 100 years, Sykes-Picot defined the region. A strong case can be made that the nation-states Sykes-Picot created are now defunct, and that what is occurring in Syria and Iraq represents the emergence of those post-British/French maps that the United States has been trying to maintain since the collapse of Franco-British power.

“This is an act of ethnic cleansing, if you will, almost genocide,” a U.S. military official warned. He was referring to bombings that killed nearly800 members of the minority Yazidi sect in northern Iraq. “Among the wounded, one in five suffered serious injuries,” while “families of the wounded were so shaken by the attack that they insisted on taking their badly broken relatives back to their villages,” away from the hospitals treating them, the New York Times reported. U.S. officials attributedthis atrocity to al-Qaeda. Surely it called for a calibrated intervention—a series of airstrikes, perhaps, to prevent a potential slaughter.

The Supreme Court on Friday cautioned non governmental organisations from making allegations which would disturb the country’s secular fabric. A three-judge bench of Chief Justice R.M. Lodha and Justices Kurian Joseph and Rohinton Nariman, hearing a writ petition filed by NGO Jayati Bharatam, seeking a SIT probe into incidents of conversion of Hindu girls into Muslims, said making averments without any supporting material would disturb the secular fabric.

Humanitarian Intervention in Iraq and Ukraine: American Double Standards

By Alexander Clackson

On 7th of August, U.S. President Barack Obama authorized “targeted airstrikes” in northern Iraq and the delivery of humanitarian assistance to religious minorities trapped there by Sunni extremists Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Though this decision has been met with general approval in the U.S. and in Europe, it has not been pointed out that the U.S. is primarily responsible for the situation Iraq finds itself in today. In addition, Obama has been hypocritical, threatening Russia with more sanctions if President Vladimir Putin authorises a humanitarian mission in Ukraine, despite the fact that many civilians in eastern Ukraine are going through similar hardships as the civilians in Iraq.
