I am Charlie - vs - I am not Charlie . An overview of arguments and counter arguments. Asif Zaidi wrote: "I am Charlie. Exercise your freedom and its expression. Throw it in the face of anyone who thinks that fear and acts of violence or any means are sufficient to oppress it. Be like those who worked for Charlie Hebdo and stand against this sort of barbarism. Live and die for the liberty of expression. The fight for freedom begins with freedom of speech." I agree. The statement I am Charlie is an expression of resistance and defiance against the transnational Wahhabi and Deobandi terrorism that is massacring Christians, Jews, Sunni Sufis, Shias and other Muslims, Hindus, Yezidis etc from South Asia to Western Europe and from Middle East to North America on one pretext or other. It is a statement of resistance to evil Wahhabi and Deobandi ideology that massacres innocent people in France because they insulted the Prophet and massacres innocent Shia and Sunni Sufi Muslims in Pakistan and Yemen because t .. ...

"We have proven that people all over India have common genetic traits and origin. All Indians have the same DNA structure. No foreign genes or DNA has entered the Indian mainstream in the last 60,000 years. South Indians migrated to the North and South Asians migrated to the rest of the world" -American Journal of Human Genetics, 2011. ** In simple terms, except for Africans, all humans have ancestors in the Indian Peninsula. In particular, one migration started around 50,000 BP towards the Middle East and Western Europe: "Indeed, nearly all Europeans - and by extension, many Americans - can trace their ancestors to only four mtDNA lines, which appeared between 10,000 and 50,000 years ago and originated from South Asia."

The second report, "Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts, and the Case for Resilience" highlighted the likely impacts on Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, the Maldives) of a 2 degree and 4 degree warming world. The report posted here notes that a warming from the current .8 degrees centigrade to 1.5 degrees is already locked in. We cannot avoid a doubling of the impacts we have already seen (e.g. floods, storms and droughts in NZ). It highlights the likely impacts on water resources, ecosystems and coastal hazards for Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe and Central Asia.

HAPPY WEEKEND READING. Saudi Arabia Must Contain Yet Another Religious Sect Generally, Sunni attacks against Shia are fairly common throughout the Middle East and South Asia, especially now during the holy month of Muharram. But that is not the case in Saudi Arabia, where sectarian violence typically takes place between state security forces and unruly Shia. If non-state Salafist actors are now attacking Shia, it means Riyadh could be burdened with yet another violent group to contain. Saudi leaders are trying to contain the Shia community to temper the rise of Iran and its Arab Shia allies in Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and, more recently, Yemen. Sentencing al-Nimr to death was a key part of Riyadh’s strategy toward this end, and the Saudis have been bracing for backlash as Shia across the region, particularly Iran, have reacted against the kingdom, warning it of dire consequences. The last thing Riyadh needs is non-state Salafist elements clashing with the Shia, undermining the efforts of the state and fur ...

TEHRAN (FNA)- The “war on terror” has come home — and it’s wreaking havoc on innocent American lives. The culprit is the militarization of the police. The weapons that destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq have made their way to local law enforcement. While police forces across the country began a process of militarization — complete with Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) teams and flash-bang grenades — when President Reagan intensified the “war on drugs,” the post-9/11 “war on terror” has added fuel to the fire. Through laws and regulations like a provision in defense budgets that authorizes the Pentagon to transfer surplus military gear to police forces, local law enforcement agencies are using weapons found on the battlefields of South Asia and the Middle East. A recent New York Times article by Matt Apuzzo reported that in the Obama era, “police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night- ...

"Terrorist organizations could seek to leverage those same smuggling routes to move operatives with intent to cause grave harm to our citizens or even quite easily bring weapons of mass destruction into the United States.” SOUTHCOM’s intelligence assets reveal the possibility is far more than just crying wolf. “Supporters and sympathizers of Lebanese Hezbollah are involved in both licit and illicit activities in the region,” Kelly told Congress. “Members, supporters, and adherents of Islamic extremist groups are present in Latin America. Islamic extremists visit the region to proselytize, recruit, establish business venues to generate funds, and expand their radical networks. Some Muslim communities in the Caribbean and South America are exhibiting increasingly extremist ideology and activities, mostly as a result from ideologues’ activities and external influence from the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. Mr. Chairman, we take all these activities seriously.”"

*ISLAM IN SPAIN* 'Please doston is post ko poora padhe' From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Islam has had a fundamental presence in the culture and history of Spain. The religion was present in modern Spanish soil from 709 until 1614 beginning with Arab rule and ending with the expulsion of the Moriscos of Al-Andalus. For key historical dates, see Timeline of the Muslim presence in the Iberian Peninsula. As of 2007, it is estimated that over 1 million Muslims live in Spain,[1] most of them recent immigrants from North Africa, Middle East, and South Asia; although there are also some Spanish converts, estimated at between 20,000[2] and 50,000.[3] Contents [hide] 1 History 1.1 Conquest 1.2 Rule 1.3 Reconquista 2 Recent immigration and conversion 3 See also 4 Notes 5 External links History[edit] The Great Mosque of Córdoba turned church after the Reconquista.

For those of you interested in the Bergdahl case, some interesting facts have been revealed. In an interview this morning on CNN with Philip Mudd a CIA analyst specializing in South Asia and the Middle East, the White House is pulling out of Afghanistan and knowing that, they will no longer be able to hold Afghan Taliban in Gitmo and knew they would have to release them anyway after the war. A video, that has not been revealed to anyone other then the government, shows Bergdahl in need of immediate medical assistance. So the government seized the opportunity to release 5 prisoners that would have been released later anyway, and trade them now for Bergdahl before he wasn't alive to trade for in the future. That is why they acted fast and did not notify Congress 30 days in advance. They knew there would be backlash but underestimated the viciousness of the American people in their response to this action. After all this is an American soldier in a captive situation. American's have even gone so far as to a ...

Why Washington should focus on Asia 5 MAY 2014, Foreign Affairs The U.S. is focusing on the Asia-Pacific region as part of its rebalancing strategy. However, it will not be able to sustain its leadership in the region through military might alone BY K. Campbell and E. Ratner The United States is in the early stages of a substantial national project: reorienting its Foreign Policy to commit greater attention and resources to the Asia-Pacific region. This reformulation of U.S. priorities has emerged during a period of much-needed strategic reassessment, after more than a decade of intense engagement with South Asia and the Middle East. It is premised on the idea that the history of the twenty-first century will be written largely in the Asia-Pacific, a region that welcomes U.S. leadership and rewards U.S. engagement with a positive return on political, economic, and military investments. As a result, the Obama administration is orchestrating a comprehensive set of diplomatic, economic, and security initiati ...
"Islamophobia" is a term that has been widely applied to anti-Muslim ideas and actions, especially since 9/11. The contributors to this provocative volume explore and critique the usefulness of the concept for understanding contexts ranging from the Middle Ages to the modern day. Moving beyond familiar explanations such as good Muslimad Muslim stereotypes or the "clash of civilizations," they describe Islamophobia's counterpart, Islamophilia, which deploys similar oppositions in the interest of fostering public acceptance of Islam. Contributors address topics such as conflicts over Islam outside and within Muslim communities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia SHRYOCK, Andrew (Ed) - Islamophobia Islamophilia Beyond the Politics of Enemy and Friend - Indidana University 2010 -261pp

Ansari is a Nesbat in Middle East and South Asia. It originates from Ansar the Medinan people that helped Islamic Prophet Muhammad when he migrated from Mecca to Medina. The literal meaning of Ansar is supporters. Arabic Usage The name itself is not used as a surname among Arabs, patronymics is used instead. The word is added as a title to the end of the name, if one has an ancestor who was an Ansar. This kind of use of a name is called "Nesbat" in Arabic, meaning "relation". In modern times, however, the surname Al-Ansari is widely used in many Persian Gulf and Arab nations. Iranian Usage In contrast, Iranians use surnames instead of Patronymics. In Iran, it has become a surname, since Iranian use surnames. This has also happened with the "Tabatabai", also originally a Nesbat. Pakistani and Indian Usage The Ansari surname goes as far as being used in Pakistan, northern India and Bangladesh, to show a lineage or ancestral link to the Ansar of Medina. Through the various waves of migration from the Arabian ...

The First Muslim-American Scholar: Bilali Muhammad - An unfortunate misconception among today’s American Muslim community is that Islam has only been present in America for less than 100 years. Many American Muslims are children of immigrants who came to the United States from the Middle East and South Asia in the mid-nineteenth century, and thus wrongly assume that the first Muslims in America were those immigrants. The reality, however, is that Islam has been in America for far longer than that. Besides possible pre-Colombian Muslim explorers from al-Andalus and West Africa, Islam arrived on America’s shores in waves through the Atlantic slave trade from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. While hundreds of thousands of slaves arrived in America during this time, the stories of only a few have been preserved and are known today. One of the most enduring and unique is that of Bilali Muhammad. The Slave Trade A slave auction advertisement from Charleston, South Carolina in 1769. A slave auctio ...

A R Rahman Interview by Amitabh Pal Look at what he writes. He is son of my classmate Kailash Nath Pal * Meet A.R. Rahman, Musical Messenger A R. Rahman is best known to Americans—if he is known at all—for his Slumdog Millionaire score. But he is a demigod in his native India, and throughout South Asia, the Middle East, and wherever the Indian diaspora exists. It’s hard to believe that the diminutive man sitting before me playing with his smartphone is Rahman, but here he is, unassuming and polite. A modest façade for a man who has changed the sound of modern Indian music. I am with Rahman in his home just outside Beverly Hills. Rahman has bought a two-story house in L.A. because he is so much in demand in the American movie industry. The main floor is a recording studio filled with dazzlingly modern equipment. The upper floor is Rahman’s living space. We chat amiably in his courtyard about the origins of his passion for music. He says his family heritage determined his professional choice. “My ...

Excellent Analysis, about Politics in Pak n South Asia and Middle East in 2014, I am listening to you Since 2002, Good Work
Pakistan has important strategic endowments and development potential. The country is located at the crossroads of South Asia, Central Asia, China and the Middle East and is thus at the fulcrum of a regional market with a vast population, large and diverse resources, and untapped potential for trade. The increasing proportion of Pakistan’s working-age population provides the country with a potential demographic dividend but also with the critical challenge to provide adequate services and increase employment. Pakistan faces significant economic, governance and security challenges to achieve durable development outcomes. The persistence of conflict in the border areas and security challenges throughout the country is a reality that affects all aspects of life in Pakistan and impedes development. A range of governance and business environment indicators suggest that deep improvements in governance are needed to unleash Pakistan's growth potential. Pakistan also faces significant economic challenges. The s ...

Dear Friends and Family, thank you so much for all your love and support, it really means a lot. We spent the day getting counseling arranged for our 6 other kids as well as making arrangements with the coroner and funeral home. I really need to give a shout out to the Frisco School District, the teachers, the counselors at Maus Middle School and Heritage High School have been incredibly supportive, they were at the hospital with my other 2 boys before we got home from California and were still there when we got there at 9 p.m. on Saturday. A lot of people know my family because of the 7 kids we have had in the Frisco School System, our kids are athletes, cheerleaders, drill team members, student government and all are Honor and AP students. We live in an incredible community, we are probably the most diverse of the 2% of anywhere you would ever live in the United States, my kids have friends from Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Canada and all over the U.S., their parents are engineers, docto ...
[R]apidly developing geo-political differences among global powers in Asia show that the next Cold War is likely to be waged between the Russia-China alliance and the U.S.-led bloc in Asia, while Pakistan has already become its arena. Hence, U.S.-backed infiltration of militants from Afghanistan and unrest continues unabated in our country. Pakistan&a strategic geo-political location at the corridor of major world maritime oil supply lines, and has close proximity to oil-rich Central Asian countries. Pakistan&location could influences Central Asia, South Asia and the Middle East. So, Pakistan is the focus of attention in the wake of the emerging geo-political scenario. We are living in a world where shifts occur in International Politics from time to time, depending on the relationship of big countries. Now, a new geo-political scenario is emerging rapidly in the world, focusing on Afghanistan, while Pakistan has become a special arena of the major countries&rivalries. Although leaders of all the concerne ...
Dubai: UAE selected the theme “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”. In today’s highly interconnected world, a renewed vision of progress and development based on shared purpose and commitment is key. While a single human mind, an individual country, or a specific community is both unique and remarkable, it is by working collaboratively that we truly advance, Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said in support of the bid. The World Expo in Dubai in 2020 will be the first to be held in the MENA & SA (Middle East and North Africa & South Asia) region. On 27 November 2013, when Dubai won the right to host the expo 2020, fireworks erupted at the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa. A national holiday was declared the following day for all educational institutions across the country. The Dubai Ruler promised Dubai would "astonish the world," in 2020. The staging of the world fair and the preparations leading are up to it are expected to result in 277,000 new jobs in the UAE, an injecti ...

Fragmentation period Three Early Modern empires Main article: Early modern history In the 15th and 16th centuries three major Muslim empires formed: the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East, the Balkans and Northern Africa; the Safavid Empire in Greater Iran; and the Mughal Empire in South Asia. These imperial powers were made possible by the discovery and exploitation of gunpowder and more efficient administration.[175] By the end of the 19th century, all three had declined, and by the early 20th century, with the Ottomans' defeat in World War I, the last Muslim empire collapsed. Dar al-'Ahd (House of truce) began to develop in the Ottoman Empire's relationship with its tributary states. In the contemporary National period, the term referred to non-Muslim governments that had armistice or peace agreements with Muslim governments. Today, the actual status of the non-Muslim country in question may vary from acknowledged equality to tributary states.[176] Mughal Empire Humayun's Tomb in Delhi, India. Main arti ...

Mapping How Workers Adjust to Trade Shocks Labor-market frictions, such as the costs for moving, firing and hiring, make labor adjustment costly. That’s why trade shocks, which affect wage and employment, can hurt the economy. In a recent working paper, Erhan Artuç, Daniel Lederman and *** Porto use an “estimator” to quantify the impact of the labor-mobility costs in developing countries. On average, the lifetime impact of such costs are equivalent to nearly five times the annual income for the average worker, which varies significantly across regions (5.45 times the income in South Asia, 5.34 in Latin America, 4.96 in Eastern Europe, 4.40 in Middle East and North Africa, 4.26 in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 3.30 in East Asia). Labor-mobility costs are negatively correlated with per capita gross domestic product, educational attainment and school quality, but they are positively associated with other costs and economic distortions. Labor-mobility costs can take a toll on the economy. It can take six y . ...

Imperialist Rivals, Domestic Foes Rattle Racist U.S. Rulers THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 AT 12:49PM The U.S. ruling class needs a powerful military to carry out wars for maximum profit and control of resources and cheap labor. To that end it slaughters masses of workers and youth, from the Middle East to Bangladesh to Latin America. In particular, the military is essential to the bosses’ control of energy supplies, shipping routes, and pipelines. At stake is the rulers’ top-dog status over oil-hungry China, among others. The Pentagon war machine must prepare for broader wars with its imperialist rivals even as it confronts the conflicts now erupting around the world. At the moment, the Middle East and South Asia are in disarray: • Civil War and growing Russian influence in Syria; • Warlords battling for control of Libya; • Military coup in Egypt; • Al Qaeda bases in Somalia, Mali, Yemen and Syria; • Sectarian warfare in Iraq that threatens Civil War and endangers oil supplies; • Threat of Ta ...
Could the next war be fought over water? Dont you think the use of water as a weapon of war will become more likely, particularly in South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa where you see the West cut off all water supplies? Just like in the James Bond movie the Quantum of Solace where theres a plan to extort money from the Bolivian government by cutting off the country's access to fresh water.
Why Muslims are still mad at America September 9, 2011 By Steven Kull Originally published on CNN's Global Public Square on September 5, 2011 On the ten-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, many Americans are wondering whether the risk of a terrorist attack against America has been reduced. The picture is mixed. With the death of Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda is weaker. With revolutions in several Arab countries, frustrations with unpopular autocratic governments -- a recruiting theme for terrorist groups - have been mitigated. But one important contributing factor has not improved - widespread anger at America in the Muslim world. While views have improved in Indonesia, throughout the Middle East and South Asia, hostility toward the United States persists unabated. This does not mean that most Muslims support terrorist attacks on America. On the contrary, overwhelming majorities reject terrorism, including the 9/11 attacks, as morally wrong. Al Qaeda is quite unpopular. However, anger at America does contri ...

The chicken is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. As one of the most common and widespread domestic animals with a population of more than 24 billion in 2003, there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs. The traditional poultry farming view of the domestication of the chicken is stated in Encyclopædia Britannica : "Humans first domesticated chickens of Indian origin for the purpose of cockfighting in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Very little formal attention was given to egg or meat production... " Recent genetic studies have pointed to multiple maternal origins in Southeast, East, and South Asia, but with the clade found in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa originating in the Indian subcontinent. From India, the domesticated chicken was imported to Lydia in Western Asia Minor, and to Greece by the fifth century BC. Fowl had been known in Egypt since the . ...
Indian people or Indians are people who are citizens of India, which forms a major part of South Asia, containing 17.31% of the world's population. The Indian nationality consists of many regional ethno-linguistic groups, reflecting the rich and complex history of India. India, in its current boundaries, was formed out of a number of predecessors. Because he thought he had found a sea route to India instead of discovering the Americas, Christopher Columbus was mistaken when he thought Native Americans were Indians. Populations with Indian ancestry, as a result of emigration, are somewhat ubiquitous, most notably in Southeast Asia, South Africa, Australia, United Kingdom, Middle East and North America. Population estimates vary from a conservative 12 million to 20 million diaspora Genetics Basu et al. (2006) emphasize that the combined results from mtDNA, Y-chromosome and autosomal markers suggest that "(1) there is an underlying unity of female lineages in India, indicating that the initial number of fema ...
MYTH: The Palestinians are now ready to make peace with Israel. FACT In his first comments as America’s new Secretary of State, John Kerry said that pursuing Israeli-Palestinian peace would be one of his top priorities. "So much of what we aspire to achieve and what we need to do globally, what we need to do in the Maghreb and South Asia, South Central Asia, throughout the Gulf, all of this is tied to what can or doesn't happen with respect to Israel-Palestine. And in some places it's used as an excuse. In other places it's a genuine, deeply felt challenge."290 Kerry's statement was alarming because it represented the long discredited State Department view that the Palestinian issue is the root of all Middle East problems and ignored the turmoil in the region unrelated to the Palestinian issue, including threats from al-Qaeda, unrest in Iraq, ongoing fighting with the Taliban in Afghanistan, new terror threats in North Africa, Syria in flames, Egypt on the verge of chaos, and most important, Iran nearin ...
" Islamic terrorism is a form of religious terrorism[1] committed by Muslims to achieve varying political ends in the name of religion. Islamic terrorism has occurred in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and North America. Islamic terrorist organizations have been known to engage in tactics including suicide attacks, hijackings, kidnapping and recruiting new members through the Internet." from wikipedia,
The New Terrorist Training Ground . Last year, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb did something no other modern terrorist group has: conquered a broad swath of a sovereign country—Mali. Since then, despite French intervention, northern Mali has become a jihadist front, with Islamist militants flowing in from around the world. While America remains focused on threats from the Middle East and South Asia, the new face of terror is likely to be African. Gao, the largest city in northern Mali, is a place of extremes. It’s a sprawl of one- and two-story mud-brick houses that lack power lines and running water, but it’s also home to the garish, McMansion-style estates of Cocainebougou, or “Cocaine Town,” a deserted neighborhood that once belonged to Arab drug lords who controlled the region’s smuggling routes for hashish and cocaine but fled, fearing reprisals from local citizens who blamed them for the Islamist invasion. The city has few high schools and no universities, but many of Mali’s leading gu ...

The Islamic Prophet Muhammad was in a precarious position as he began to spread his teachings to his disciples. As a man with no male descendants, in a natalist and patriarchal culture, his proclaimed identity as the messenger of God and temporal head of a new religion was viewed as an affront by many who attached authority to a man with a proliferation of wives and children, and in particular, a male heir to ensure the descendants of his authority.[14] Nonetheless, Islam spread to become the dominant religion in the Arab regions of the Middle East, as well as Maghreb in Northern Africa, the Anatolian region such as Turkey, and into South Asia as far as Pakistan, India, Malaysia and Indonesia. The patriarchal character of pre-Islamic Arabic culture influenced not only the content of the Quran and related doctrine, it persists today in the interpretation and application of Islamic dogma. Theological scholarship and practices vary widely according to the country, region, or sectarian beliefs where an Islami ...

Kashmir is south Asia’s unfinished business: CIA big boss Riedel ‘K-resolution will make Pakistan a normal state’ New Delhi: Terming resolution of Kashmir issue as “South Asia’s unfinished business,” CIA veteran Bruce Riedel has the resolution of the issue would go a long way towards making Pakistan a more normal state and reducing its preoccupation with India. He also suggests a quiet American effort led by President Barrack Obama to move the two countries towards an agreement. In his new book “Avoiding Armageddon”, published by HarperCollins, Riedel, who was a senior adviser to four US presidents on Middle East and South Asian issues, explains the challenge and the importance of successfully managing America's affairs with India and Pakistan and their toxic relationship. Full of riveting details of what went on behind the scenes, and based on extensive research and Riedel's experience, the book reviews the history of American diplomacy in South Asia, the crisis that have flared in recent ...

Additional thoughts on immigration Reform Have you been to Metropolitan Toronto or Vancouver lately? I don’t mean Windsor, Sarnia, or the fireworks stores in Quebec just across the border from Champlain, NY. I mean really into Canada. Canadian metropolitan areas in traditionally WASP, Celtic, and French Canadian areas now all have huge populations of immigrants from areas in South Asia, East Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East who are young, activist, educated, and enthusiastic. Most of them are not any more anti-American or terrorist than the typical American college student or young adult. I actually like some of them better . On our southern border are Hispanics who are largely family-oriented, religious within a Western context, largely pro-American, and who want to become American. The difference is they do not have the educational background that recent Canadian Asian or Middle Eastern emigrants have, through no fault of their own. This should be no problem since most of the Jews ...
Why is it that those who come to english as a 2nd language command it more eloquently and efficiently than those whose 1st language is American english? I'm specifically referring to Europeans and those in the Middle East and South Asia trained in the English tradition. I don't think this is true for Mexicans and Central/South Americans, probably because they learned from American slang. This is obviously a generalization, because I've met individuals that have proved me otherwise.
Gwadar the future of Pakistan GWADAR, “The Future of Pakistan”, is a Balochi term which translated means “Door of Wind”. However, looking into the future, it can be referred to as the “Door of Prosperous Wind”. Gwadar has geo-strategic significance due to many reasons. It is on the conduit of three most commercially important regions of the world. The oil rich Middle East, Central Asia bestowed with natural resources and South Asia having the potential for growth, for this century. The city’s strategic, warm-water, deep-sea Gwadar Port was completed in 2007.The port is 14 meters (46 feet) deep and handles the largest cargo ships to Pakistan. The city is emerging as a trade hub and a transit for Chinese oil and timber imports and transshipments. It is my belief that via Gwadar we can take Pakistan to far greater heights, provided we adequately utilize its potential, developing it in a planned way and attract potential Pakistani and foreigner investors. Pakistan has neither a dearth of human r ...

The history of Asia can be seen as the collective history of several distinct peripheral coastal regions such as, East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East linked by the interior mass of the Eurasian steppe. The coastal periphery was the home to some of the world's earliest known civilizations, with each of the three regions developing early civilizations around fertile river valleys. These valleys were fertile because the soil there was rich and could bear lots of root crops. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and China shared many similarities and likely exchanged technologies and ideas such as mathematics and the wheel. Other notions such as that of writing likely developed individually in each area. Cities, states and then empires developed in these lowlands. The steppe region had long been inhabited by mounted nomads, and from the central steppes they could reach all areas of the Asian continent. The northern part of the continent, covering much of Siberia was also inaccessible to t ...

Afghanistan has long been used as a battleground for strategic wars by larger external powers. This is in part due to its geographic position between the Middle East, Central Asia and South Asia. In addition, the fragmented and polarized nature of Afghan society, which is made up of many different ethnic groups, has lead to its multiple internal struggles which have gained support from the different external powers. The almost continuous devastation caused to the country for over the past three decades is a testimony to the strength and endurance of its people and the groups who work towards rebuilding their country.

Growth in the developing world will remain solid, albeit slower than the frenetic growth rates seen during the pre-crisis boom period, as developing countries grapple with home-grown challenges brought on by capacity constraints in many middle income countries, says the World Bank’s latest Global Economic Prospects, issued today. Global GDP is expected to expand about 2.2 percent in this year and strengthen to 3.0 percent and 3.3 percent in 2014 and 2015. Developing-country GDP is now projected to be around 5.1 percent in 2013, strengthening to 5.6 percent and 5.7 percent in 2014 and 2015, respectively, with growth in Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa projected to remain weak. Looking at broader region-wide trends, the East Asia & Pacific region is expected to grow by 7.3 percent this year; Europe & Central Asia by 2.8 percent; Latin America & the Caribbean by 3.3 percent; Middle East & North Africa by 2.5 percent; South Asia by 5.2 percent; and Sub-Saharan Africa by 4.9 percent.

Dalits, Discrimination and Food Industry in Nepal The caste system The caste system is a social division of people based on their occupation and access to power. The caste system in Nepal with its origin in Hindu philosophy has always prescribed social status based on birth. Thus, caste has been considered and practiced as a matter of birth, which cannot be changed by quality, education, intellect and social contribution. The generation of castes is based on the Varna system of Hindu theology. The Varna system in the early period of the development of human civilization during and before Vedic Era of South Asia and Middle East was actually the division of labour in the society of the time. The Varna system, thus, is a system of four Varnas - Brahmin, Chhetri, Vaishya and Shudra. In the vertical division of people in traditional Hindu society, Brahmins are at the top as head, brain and authority of education and knowledge. Similarly, Chhetris are the ruling class, their major occupation under the guidance ...

Southeast Asia East Asia SOUTH ASIA Southwest Asia (MIDDLE EAST) Central Asia The 5 major regions of Asia are Southeast Asia, East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, and Southwest Asia (also known as the Middle East). Some geography sources will also include North Asia as the 6th region, but we chose to simply make our Russia page the de facto page for North Asia because it is essentially the only country in the region. Although exact formal boundaries of these regions are rarely agreed upon, this is the organizational structure we feel best represents the geographic sections. Hundreds of pages could be written dissecting the various disputing arguments that have arisen over time about which countries belong in which region. In actuality, many countries justly belong in two regions, due to strong geographic or cultural characteristics it may share with both regions.
China to revive ‘Southern Silk Road’ China is looking to revive the ancient “Southern Silk Road” linking its southwestern regions with Southeast and South Asia, as it aims to boost cooperation with countries along the once-booming trade route. China has had trade, religious and cultural exchanges with South Asian countries by way of the “Southern Silk Road” since ancient times, Dilip Barua, Minister for Industries of Bangladesh, said at the ongoing 8th China-South Asia Business Forum in Kunming, capital of southwest China’s Yunnan province. With a history of more than 2,000 years, the ancient trade route, stretching over 2,000 kilometers long, was dubbed the “Southern Silk Road” by historians. The route, originating from Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan province, wandered through cities in Sichuan and finally took traders to Myanmar by way of Yunnan province. Then, it extended through to India, Bangladesh and even the Middle East. Similar to the prestigious Silk Road, the “Southern Sil ...

Strategic Importance of Gwadar Port for Pakistan Gwadar Port is the third Deep Sea port in Pakistan after Karachi and Port Qasim. Located on the western end of Baluchistan coast, Gwadar has 600km long coastal belt with beaches and bays. It lies just 624 nautical km to the east of Strait of Hormuz, which is an important rout of oil tankers bound for Japan and western countries out of Persian Gulf. Once a small fishing town along the Makran Coast is now set to be become a mega seaport which will fulfill the requirement of three strategically important regions the oil rich Middle East, heavily populated South Asia and Western China and the economically emerging resource-laden region of Central Asia. The Gwadar Port is expected to generate billions of dollars in revenues and create at least two million jobs. Gwadar Port is the living symbol of Pak-China relationship. ECO highway, Coastal Highway and other mega projects in road sectors will connect Gwadar free port with Central Asian States, Gulf States, China ...

Falooda or Faluda is a cold and sweet beverage containing many ingredients very popular in South Asia. Traditionally it is made by mixing rose syrup with vermicelli, psyllium (ispaghol) or basil (sabza/takmaria) seeds, jelly pieces and tapioca pearls along with either milk, water or ice cream.[1] Faluda is an adaptation of the non-liquid Persian dessert Faloodeh, made in Iran, Bangladesh, Pakistan, North India and Afghanistan, from which it adopted the name. This drink may have been brought to the Indian subcontinent during the Mughal period. The vermicelli used are often made from arrowroot rather than wheat. The rose syrup may be substituted with another flavoured base to produce kesar (saffron), mango, chocolate or fig flavour. Nowadays faluda is a popular summer drink throughout Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and the Middle East and is readily available in restaurants and beach stalls.
Chinese maritime strategy, "pearls", Gwadar; Gwadar Port, the Latest of the Chinese “Pearls” By Marco Giulio Barone. The “String of Pearls” strategy was conceived for providing Beijing with the possibility of having access to raw materials and energy supplies from the Middle East and Africa through a series of choke points along South Asia, from mainland China to Port Sudan. But this strategy has shown some vulnerability because of India’s increasing naval interdiction in the Indian Ocean[i]. From a Chinese perspective, Gwadar Port may represent the solution to this threat. In fact, as part of broader agreements between China and Pakistan, several major infrastructure pivoted to Gwadar will connect China directly to the Arabian Sea[ii]. Accordingly, if China succeeded in Gwadar, the United States and India may have to redraw their grand strategy in East Asia.

The ritual painting and decorating of the human body began in pre-history and henna as a tool for this art was particularly prevalent in the cultures of North Africa and the Middle East. From here it possibly spread to South Asia. Over the centuries it has developed to become an intricate art form rich in symbolism. Known in South Asia as mehndi, it is used to celebrate weddings, circumcisions and births. In India, the use of henna in the 4th and 5th centuries is illustrated on Bodhisattvas and deities of cave wall murals. It was probably used in India seven centuries before the Mogul invasion, and hundreds of years before Muslim religion began in the middle of the 7th century AD. The use of henna as a decoration in India took off with the advent of Muslim rule and became common after the 12th century. It further developed under the rule of the Mughals and by the 17th century, various designs had evolved. Besides being an art form, the use of mehndi was valued in the heat of summer as it h ...
I was at Cal, I took several upper division courses in anthropology centered around the Middle East and Central Asia. I was particularly interested in nomadic cultures. Living in a tight social group, the nomads drive their herds from winter to summer grazing areas following paths that have changed little in thousands of years. The nomads have leaders, but live in very egalitarian manner, depending on each other for security, protection and shared knowledge and physical resources. Indeed, if a member demanded the life of another he would give it. Many scholars even see the story of Cain and Abel, a comparison between the pure and virtuous life of the herder as opposed to the often corrupt and corrupting life of the agricultural society. (Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs & Steel suggests that most of our social problems arise from the stratification and hierarchies created in response to surplus food resulting from the widespread use of agriculture. Human societies developed kings, priests, professional soldier ...

I don't see why more universities don't have India studies departments. There's plenty of emerging China departments (and older ones from the Orientalist days) as well as Japan and Korea departments, and then Russia is integrated into all the IR departments and has been since the Cold War, and then during the early years of the War on Terror a bunch of smaller Middle East departments sprouted up and then there was the shift of Boren scholarships towards Middle East/Central Asia languages like Arabic and Pashto and Farsi and Urdu, and of course Latin American and European studies have always been integrated into the departments of all liberal arts since, bluntly, America shares a civilization with those regions. But I've literally never heard of South Asian studies institutes at major universities, or any focuses on South Asia other than linguistic or cultural elements- never the broader scope of things that CIA and DOS demand their people to know for the Middle East or East Asia. And just about every ana ...

And it’s not just the awesome arms and ammo that are an endless source of income for the merchants of death.

Derek Murray, our Champion for the Middle East & South Asia, is speaking at a event in Abu Dhabi this evening
Singing On 'Idol,' And Facing Wrath Of Religious Traditionalists !!! (RNS) The biggest worry for most "American Idol" contestants is whether the judges will let them continue to the next round. Some singers on Idol-like programs abroad have a bigger worry: that religious extremists will kill them. Appearing on a version of the show in conservative cultures in the Middle East, Near East and South Asia can mean anything from a public shaming to, in the most extreme cases, death threats so serious that a performer has to flee the country. The harassment began after these programs began proliferating globally, following the successful debut of "American Idol" in 2002. Typically, the censure comes from religious authorities, or those who wrap their threats in religious language. And though male contestants have been the targets of those who claim these shows are blasphemous, or anti-Islamic, it is more often female singers who are condemned for immodest behavior. Consider the following: In Saudi Arabia, religi ...

Both leaders are busy men with traveling schedules that are only fitting for singles; so, why would they volunteer and invest time to serve together with a group of volunteers from various organizations? Surely, with prudence, they can occupy their time in other more worthwhile matters.  But, they do not.  They have deemed an embrace of the orality movement far more important in reaching the unengaged and unreached people groups.   Church planters in South Asia, Middle East and North Africa along with compassion ministries are changing some of their critical methodologies to include orality strategies; why would they do that, especially when so much investment has been made in traditional strategies?  Could it be that orality strategies work?  Yes, this stuff really works (see story at link below) and frontline ministries in different domains h ...
Far East, Near East, Middle East (aka Mid-East): Know what you're saying and how the names/terms often have IMPERIAL/European ties. Far East: Far East: The Far East is an English term (with equivalents in various other languages of Europe and Asia, Chinese 遠東 yuǎn dōng literally translating to "Far East") mostly describing East Asia (including the Russian Far East) and Southeast Asia, with South Asia sometimes also included for economic and cultural reasons. The term came into use in European geopolitical discourse in the 19th century, denoting East Asia as the "farthest" of the three "easts", beyond the Near East and the Middle East. For the same reason, Chinese people in the 19th and early 20th centuries called Western countries "Tàixī (泰西)"—i.e. anything further west than the Arab world. The term is less commonly used than in the past[3] as it allegedly connotes the "orientalism" of the 19th century more explicitly than East Asia. Since the 1960s, terms like East Asia and the Orient h ...
History of Indian Restaurants in UK The history of Indian food in Britain is now almost four hundred years old and not only has the cuisine undergone a great change in the United Kingdom but also in its native land. Apart from the reports of occasional explorers, the story really starts with the arrival in Surat of the English merchants of the East India Company in 1608 and then again and more successfully in 1612. Soon lascars - seamen, mainly from Bengal - were helping to man British ships and despite The Navigation Act of 1660 stating that 75% of the crew of a British ship had to be British, a number began appearing in London throughout the century. The first recorded case of an Indian being christened here was bound up with British commercial adventures in South Asia. The baptism-on 22 December 1616 at St Dionis Backchurch in the City of London-took place in the presence of governors of the East India Company. Many of the first Asian arrivals in Britain came as servants to returning East India Company ...
The former head of the British armed forces who recently retired and appointed as a Defense advisor to Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday confirmed that the war in Afghanistan is a war on Islam. Speaking on the BBC Radio 4 programme about Britain's continued occupation of Afghanistan, Gen (r) Sir Richard Dannatt said: “There is an Islamist agenda which if we don't oppose and face it off in southern Afghanistan, or Afghanistan, or in South Asia, then frankly that influence will grow. We could see it moving from South Asia to the Middle East to North Africa and to the high water mark of the Islamic caliphate in the 14th, 15th Century.” He explicitly said if Muslims adopted Islam's political ideas and the Khilafah ruling system, this would be unacceptable and warranted a military response from Britain. He had no issues with Muslims praying or enacting spiritual rituals, provided they surrendered political life to Western values.

Dubai- The Economic Mirage Dubai once symbolized the economic boom of the 21st Century. It was viewed favourably by major Western companies that established offices in the country attracting a large number of foreign workers from Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. With an economy to the tune of $46 billion, the Gulf emirate attracted world-wide attention with its rising property sector. Today, however, is a different story. The economic situation has deteriorated to the point that expatriates are leaving the country as fast as possible. As reported in the New York Times, debt-ridden foreigners are fleeing Dubai, abandoning their cars at the airport with “maxed-out credit cards inside and notes of apology taped to the windshield.” Dubai: Growth and Collapse To understand the collapse of the Dubai economy, one must look at what was driving it. Dubai’s economy was initially a mixture of trading and oil. Since the 1940s, the city was known as a trading-hub for gold in the Middle East and South Asia. Oil was a ...
Gareth Evans, global peace champion, former Foreign Minister of Australia, gives deep insight into the current state of peace: Happy New Year THE GLOBAL MARCH TOWARD PEACE by Gareth Evans* If we were hoping for peace in our time, 2012 did not deliver it. Conflict grew ever bloodier in Syria, continued to grind on in Afghanistan, and flared up periodically in West, Central, and East Africa. There were multiple episodes of ethnic, sectarian, and politically motivated violence in Myanmar (Burma), South Asia, and around the Middle East. Tensions between China and its neighbors have escalated in the South China Sea, and between China and Japan in the East China Sea. Concerns about North Korea’s and Iran’s nuclear programs remain unresolved. And yet, many feared eruptions within and between states did not occur. Strong international pressure helped to contain the Second Gaza War quickly. A long-sought peace agreement was secured for the southern Philippine island of Mindanao. Major strides were taken towar ...

Awadhi cuisine is from the city of Lucknow, which is the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh in Central-South Asia and Northern India. Awadh has been greatly influenced by Mughal cooking techniques, and the cuisine of Lucknow bears similarities to those of Persia, Kashmir, Punjab and Hyderabad; and the city is known for Nawabi foods. The bawarchis and rakabdars of Awadh gave birth to the dum style of cooking or the art of cooking over a slow fire, which has become synonymous with Lucknow today. Their spread consisted of elaborate dishes like kebabs, kormas, biryani, kaliya, nahari-kulchas, zarda, sheermal, roomali rotis, and warqi parathas. The richness of Awadh cuisine lies not only in the variety of cuisine but also in the ingredients used like mutton, paneer, and rich spices including cardamom and saffron. FEW WORDS WITH THEIR SIMPLE MEANINGS... Kebab is a wide variety of skewered meals originating in the Middle East... Kebab's are the integral part of Awadhi. Lucknow is proud of its Kebabs.

This meeting was preceded by senior-level regional consultations on Africa, Asia and Pacific, South Asia, and the Middle East.
Al Qaeda Is Making A Comeback Across the Middle East and South Asia, the group isn't dead or dying but on the rise. 23 OCT 12 By Jack Keane With Afghanistan the forgotten war this election season, many Americans might be wondering why we have 68,000 U.S. troops there at all. Sure, the Obama administration says they'll be out "on schedule" in 2014, but can't the U.S. immediately pull back and protect its interests with drones and special-operations forces alone? To better understand the battle in Afghanistan, look to Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Sinai, Syria or Iraq—all places where Al Qaeda and associated groups are a growing presence. (Al Qaeda in Iraq has doubled in size in the year since U.S. troops left the country.) These terrorists have already killed Americans, and they have planned and executed several attacks on the U.S. homeland that have failed only thanks to technical problems or outstanding police work. While not the catalyst of the Arab Spring, Al Qaeda and its friends are seeking to take advant ...
O'Reiilly is right. Saudi Arabia has already said it won't allow Israel to use its airspace, we've had ongoing issues with Pakistan in allowing us to use its airspace and highway system to get supplies to our troops in Afghanistan, and only someone who either knows very little about the Middle East, South Asia, and Islam ( or one who doesn't care) would overlook the fact that Iran will use an invasion as a rallying cry to other nations in the region with Islamic majorities against us. I have to give O'Reilly credit. It seems that he's thought long and hard about the danger of invading Iran and that he's done quite a bit of reading on the history of the ME and S. Asia.

Think it's just a minor slip up when Obama said he had visited all 57 states? Well, guess again. He is very familiar with 57 STATES because of the following. The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is an international organization with a permanent delegation to the United Nations. It groups 57 nations, most of which are Islamic, from the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, Caucasus, Balkan, Southeast Asia, South Asia and South America.
Mr. President, Mr. Secretary-General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman: I would like to begin today by telling you about an American named Chris Stevens. Chris was born in a town called Grass Valley, California, the son of a lawyer and a musician. As a young man, Chris joined the Peace Corps, and taught English in Morocco. He came to love and respect the people of North Africa and the Middle East, and he would carry that commitment throughout his life. As a diplomat, he worked from Egypt to Syria; from Saudi Arabia to Libya. He was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked – tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking Arabic and listening with a broad smile. Chris went to Benghazi in the early days of the Libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. As America’s representative, he helped the Libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for a future in which the rights of all Libyans would be respected.

Had to borrow this from a friend of mine in the military.hes does know whats going on. . You can tell a lot about people by what they will oppose and what they will accept. On 21 Nov 2007, Obama stated that if he took power, those who hated us would no longer be so inclined to do so. Fast forward to September 2012: in 23 countries across North Africa, across the Middle East, across South Asia, down to Indonesia and Australia, the streets are filled with anti-American rioters and terrorists. Our embassies and consulates are under attack and our diplomats being slaughtered. The jihadis' black flag was flying over our embassy in Tunis. Obama's reaction? Skip some more intel briefings and head to Vegas, and party with Beyonce and Jay-Z while denying the attacks were planned terrorist attacks. Liberals are good with all of this and want to see those Americans who oppose Obama severely punished, even dead. If these liberals are patriots, I am Karl Marx.

Targeting Tribal Leaders: A New Militant Tactic in Sinai By Ashley Lindsey | August 16, 2012 Militants killed Egyptian tribal leader Khalaf al-Menahy and his son Aug. 13 as the two were returning from a conference in east Sinai organized and attended by tribal leaders to denounce militancy, according to Sinai security forces. The senior al-Menahy was a prominent proponent of bolstering the Sinai Peninsula's representation in Egypt's parliament and of improving security in the region. He also was a prominent sheikh in the Sawarka tribe, said to be the largest in Sinai. Following his burial Aug. 13, the tribe vowed to seek vengeance. This is the first reported case of militants attacking tribal leaders in Sinai. It comes soon after an attack on Egyptian security forces Aug. 5 and an attack on military checkpoints in northern Sinai on Aug. 8. Although the militant tactic of targeting tribal leaders is new to Sinai, the tactic has been common in conflict zones in the Middle East and South Asia, such as in Yem ...

Ancient Peshawar Main article: History of Peshawar Being among the most ancient cities of the region between Central, South, and West Asia, Peshawar has for centuries been a centre of trade between Afghanistan, South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East. As an ancient centre of learning, the 2nd century BC. Bakhshali Manuscript used in the Bakhshali approximation was found nearby.[4] Vedic mythology refers to an ancient settlement called Pushkalavati in the area, after Pushkal, the son of King Bharata in the epic Ramayana.[5] but this settlement's existence remains speculative and unverifiable.[6] In recorded history, the earliest major city established in the general area of Peshawar was called Purushapura (Sanskrit for City of Men), from which the current name "Peshawar" may derive,[7] and was founded by the Kushans, a Central Asian tribe of Tocharian origin, over 2,000 years ago.[8] The area that Peshawar occupies was then seized by the Greco-Bactrian king, Eucratides (170 – 159 BC), and was contro ...

The Global War on Christians in the Muslim World From one end of the muslim world to the other, Christians are being murdered for their faith. By Ayaan Hirsi Ali* We hear so often about Muslims as victims of abuse in the West and combatants in the Arab Spring’s fight against tyranny. But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm. The portrayal of Muslims as victims or heroes is at best partially accurate. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands, murdering Christians and driving them ...

The average age for Europe is 43 years old. East Asia: 29 South Asia (including India) 21 - 24 Middle East: 25 Latin America: 27 Africa: 18 Simply put, in 40 years time nearly half of the population of Europe today will be dead.(average life expectancy is 78) only 2/3 will be replaced. Meanwhile, elsewhere half of the population is younger than 25, which means in 40 years time, minus desease and war, most of the people alive today in those countries will still be alive. The average person in these countries can more so relate to an American in there 20's than can the average European, since how they are on average significantly older. This will help predict future economic trade and socialization between the current generation of 20 somethings and future generations (especially countries with an average population in their 20's).

DID YOU KNOW? (The following is an excerpt copied fro the blog "Stop Nato" This, in a nutshell, is the NATO that will be having its world summit in Chicago on May 20-21.) NATO, which is a consortium of Europe's past colonial masters (Britain,France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Turkey), post-World War II world neocolonial powerhouse the U.S and assorted underlings and appendages, is bluntly asserting as its prerogative - as its new foundational mission - the exclusive right and obligation alike of intervening anywhere it chooses to outside the "civilized world": The Balkans, Central and South Asia, Africa, the Gulf of Aden, the South Caucasus and the Middle East. When NATO's 28 heads of state gather in Chicago in May they will, with the exception of the American president, look very much alike. The military organization that presumes to direct the course of world affairs has no members in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Oceania. The combined population ...

[Afghanistan from a Y-chromosome perspective // European Journal of Human Genetics , (18 April 2012) | doi:10.1038/ejhg.2012.59 Lacau et al.] "Central Asia has served as a corridor for human migrations providing trading routes since ancient times. It has functioned as a conduit connecting Europe and the Middle East with South Asia and Far Eastern civilizations. Therefore, the study of populations in this region is essential for a comprehensive understanding of early human dispersal on the Eurasian continent. Although Y- chromosome distributions in Central Asia have been widely surveyed, present-day Afghanistan remains poorly characterized genetically. The present study addresses this lacuna by analyzing 190 Pathan males from Afghanistan using high-resolution Y-chromosome binary markers. In addition, haplotype diversity for its most common lineages (haplogroups R1a1a*-M198 and L3-M357) was estimated using a set of 15 Y-specific STR loci.
