Cholera bomb: Who would save Yemen from mass annihilation?

1396/5/27 | 09:17
  The Yemeni people — amongst the poorest in the Arab world — have to face bombings as well as starvation as the infrastructure in their country lies in a state of shambles.    While a power struggle had long been brewing between the Houthi forces — who captured the capital Sana’a in late 2014 — and their local opponents, the situation was exacerbated when Saudi Arabia intervened in the Yemeni conflict in March 2015.      Since then, Yemen’s condition has gone from bad to worse, with none of the belligerents ...

Alcoholism among adult Americans rose 49% in 2000s: New US study

1396/5/22 | 09:17
A new US study has found that the rate of alcoholism among adult American adults has climbed by nearly 50 percent in the first decade of the 2000s, adding that one in eight adults or 12.7 percent of the US population meets diagnostic criteria for ‘alcohol use disorder.' Authors of the research study, published in this month’s issue of JAMA Psychiatry, described the findings as a grim though overlooked public health crisis, underlining that alcoholism remains a major contributor to mortality from a wide variety of ailments such as “fetal ...

Growing Attacks on Shiite community Fuel Fears of Sectarianism in Afghanistan

1396/5/18 | 09:17
Over the weekend, Taliban forces attacked the remote northern Afghan village of Mirza Olang. At least 50 civilians were killed, mostly Shi’ites, and another 150 families are still being held hostage by the militants, again mostly Shi’ites.     Earlier that week, a pair of bombers, apparently linked to ISIS, attacked a Shi’ite mosque in the city of Herat, killing at least 50 people and wounding scores of others.   It’s generally dangerous to be a member of Afghanistan’s Shi’ite minority, known as Hazaras, ...

Syrian refugee achieves his dream of becoming a doctor

1396/5/14 | 09:17
Ten years, four countries, four medical schools and 21 houses later Tirej Brimo, a refugee who fled the Syrian war, is finally a doctor. Having been just 10 months away from graduating with a medical degree at a university in Aleppo, Brimo was forced to flee his homeland in 2012 due to the war, crisscrossing the MiddleEast before arriving in Britain in 2013. Last week, he graduated from St George’s University of London – after having been turned away by several medical schools – and is now embarking on his career as a junior doctor ...

The sad story of Manal al-Sharif: The woman who fought for equality in Saudi Arabia

1396/5/11 | 09:17
  Manal al-Sharif is determined in her fight to improve women’s rights in the Saudi regime.   Women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia for some unknown reason. Manal al-Sharif is a Saudi Arabian woman who was arrested for driving her car in the city of Khobar. She filmed herself with Wajeha al-Huwaider’s help while driving and uploaded the video on Facebook and YouTube. The video was meant for a campaign that she helped start in 2011. Following the viral video, she was arrested for breaking the law. She then was released, ...

Activist jailed for driving says women treated like slaves in Saudi Arabia

1396/4/18 | 09:17
A female activist jailed for driving in Saudi Arabia says women are “treated as slaves” in the kingdom. “I come from a very private society where we live in closed windows, high walls and women are covered up. It's very difficult for girls and women in Saudi Arabia to do anything without the permission from a male guardian,” Manal al-Sharif was quoted in an article published by the Independent on Saturday. In 2011, Sharif uploaded a video on social media in which she could be seen driving. The clip was viewed over 700,000 times in ...

Are There any Limits to U.S. Hypocrisy?

1396/4/6 | 09:17
SHAFAQNA – Having ordered to attack the al-Shayrat air field near the western Syrian city of Homs, U.S. President Donald Trump knew that the Syrian government hadn’t used any chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun. At the same time the current U.S. administration was making every effort to develop an information campaign against Damascus. This was reported by Welt am Sonntag, a German Sunday newspaper. An American investigative journalist and political writer Seymour Hersh stressed that, actually, Syrian Air Force had targeted a two-story building, ...

Stunning Images That Capture The Beauty Of Eid In America

1396/4/6 | 09:17
SHAFAQNA – Eid al-Fitr, the festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, is one of the most important holidays on the Islamic calendar.  Traditionally lasting three days, Eid is marked by joyous family gatherings, prayers, gift-giving, and feasting. In 2017, Eid began on June 25 in the United States and was observed in Muslim communities across the country. From joining hundreds of fellow believers in prayer at sports stadiums to going to Toys “R” Us to pick out gifts for the kids, Muslim families in the United States ...

"Would you like a drink of water?" Please ask a Yemeni child

1396/4/1 | 09:17
  This week, in New York City, representatives from more than100 countries will begin collaborating on an international treaty, first proposed in 2016, to ban nuclear weapons forever.   It makes sense for every country in the world to seek a legally binding ban on nuclear weapons. It would make even more sense to immediately deactivate all nuclear weapons. But, by boycotting and disparaging the process now underway, the U.S. and other nuclear armed nations have sent a chilling signal. They have no intention of giving up the power ...
