December - 17 - 2018 Reporter: admin Comments Off on PM Imran Khan’s distortions about Jinnah-Yasser Latif Hamdani

At the outset one must ask Prime Minister Imran Khan this: Sure you want to make a Riyasat-e-Medina or establish a rightly guided caliphate, by all means do it but what is the point in ascribing to Jinnah these ideas when he never used any such idea ever? The 1943 session of the Muslim League […]

December - 3 - 2018 Reporter: admin Comments Off on Socialists and the fight against racism-Review by Bill Mullen

Histories of American socialism and the fight against racism in the early twentieth century are laden with flimsy myths. On one account, the socialist movement was indifferent or silent, a lie buttressed by endlessly repeated citation of Eugene Debs’ claim that “We [the Socialist Party] have nothing special to offer the Negro.” On another account, […]
