TIME SENSITIVE/URGENT Request from Sarah Kureshi and Wajahat Ali, parents of Nusayba.
Dear Friends, please read and share widely:
Late last week we found out that our daughter Nusayba's liver donor...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀImportant message from @WajahatAli and family - donor needed, especially if in wider DC area - you will be doing a good deed, the likes of which will bring such joy. Please read/ share. Generous people have made this very easy to take up - please consider
Hellyer’s work in politics, international relations, and religious studies in Europe and the Arab world comes at a particularly challenging moment.
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀIt is not every day you take up a new position, and even rarer to be joining a team that you have long respected. It’s why I am grateful to be appointed as a non-resident scholar @CarnegieEndow-ment for International Peace today.

Saudi Arabia, Russia and 35 other states have written to the United Nations supp...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀAppalling."As well as S. Arabia & Russia, the letter (backing China's abuse of Muslims) was signed by ambassadors from many African countries, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Belarus, Myanmar, Philippines, Syria, Pakistan, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE & Bahrain."
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀIt would be advisable to notify the Muslim Brotherhood that Nasserites, leftists & liberals (all of whom have a record of quite harshly critiquing the MB) are, actually, MB. Come to think of it, it would be good to let those non/anti-Islamists know it too
Last month marked the fiftieth anniversary of the arrest of a South African Muslim religious leader and anti-apartheid activist who then died in prison, following months of torture. The example of Abdullah Haron now has a fresh pertinence for Saudi...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀ"Fifty years after his imprisonment, the contrast between the activist example of Imam Abdullah Haron in South Africa; & apologists for autocracy": My latest in ABC News, where I also discuss the recent letter by Muslim scholars against the trials in Saudi
Mr Hunt says he shares 'sentiment' of US president's tweets over 'Londonistan' - comments branded 'disgusting' by Muslim Council of Britain
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀOur serving foreign secretary @Jeremy_Hunt openly sided with Trump when the latter used a far-right demagogue like Katie Hopkins to express anti-Muslim bigotry. Against our own @MayorofLondon. Utterly appalling. Utterly appalling. #Thread
Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner said in an interview that the Palestinians aren’t yet able to govern themselves and declined to promise them an independent state in the White House’s long-awaited Mideast peace plan.
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀThe idea any nation is not 'ready' to govern itself, & thus should be continously subject to an occupation (ongoing for several decades) is just racist. It's pathetic this discourse remains acceptable in DC. Palestinians are not children of a lesser God.
Like thousands of others, Omar Alshogre was repeatedly tortured in Bashar al-Assad’s prisons—but unlike so many, he got out. Now he’s telling the world about the regime’s industrial-scale brutality.
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀWhen Hisham Aidi @UptownBerber writes, I read. It's really that simple. Especially when he profiles someone like Omar Alshogre, who was repeatedly tortured in Syria's prisons. Now Alshogre telling the world about the regime’s industrial-scale brutality.

ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀUN special rapporteur for human rights:“The sub-contraction of trials... to an ill-resourced, under-funded, ill-equipped criminal justice system in Iraq can only be described as an abrogation of responsibility.” On Syria ISIS foreign fighters sent to Iraq.
On December 17, British Prime Minister David Cameron released what he described as the ‘ main findings ’ of the internal review he commissioned into the Muslim Brotherhood more than a year ago. The release put an end to a long-running epic around...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀWithin the UK, the question was raised, and resulted in the 'Muslim Brotherhood review', which I've written on elsewhere. atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/menasour… As negative as it was vis-a-vis the MB, the review did not proscribe the MB, because it was deemed to be legally non-viable to do so.
The United States will consider new ways to remove Sudan from its list of state ...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀVia @Reuters: - US encouragement to the new Sudanese regime to move towards civilian rule. I would say this also shows Trump has probably little to no interest in Sudan (thankfully) - because this is a good move. . .
It was in Paris in May 1968, as French workers and students revolted, that Roger Scruton became a conservative. “I was woken up then, I wasn’t really political until that moment,” the author and philosopher recalled when we met recently at his flat...
ᴅʀ ʜ.ᴀ. ʜᴇʟʟʏᴇʀThis interview with Roger Scruton, who condemns himself in his own words, permanently taints him. He is no ally in struggling against the excesses of modernity - he is an ally of the far-right. Period.
