Is Yale’s English Course Too ‘White’?
BY Lizzie Crocker – Daily Beast – 1 June 2016 – A petition from Yale students demands a ‘decolonized’ undergraduate curriculum for English majors, which could mean the chop for Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, and Donne. ….. The petition calls on department faculty to reassess the English major’s core and introductory courses, and demands that the “Major English Poets” survey course—a two-semester prerequisite for the major—be overhauled entirely.

MESOP SUMMARY : International Concerns about New Offensives Against Islamic State
Iraqi forces near Fallujah are still working to complete their perimeter of the city and they are not ready to push into the city yet. “There’s not much going on — why are you in such a hurry?” an Iraqi military commander told the BBC. Shia militias continue to play an active role in the operation, and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif pushed back on Saudi criticisms of Iran’s role in Iraq. “We will leave Iraq whenever Iraq asks us to. And we will help Iraq to confront terrorism, as long as Iraq wants us to,” Zarif said, calling Saudi criticisms of Iraqi affairs “arrogant.” Elsewhere in Iraq, the Islamic State has banned satellite television in Mosul, saying it promotes brainwashing.

MESOP TODAYS OPINION BY MICHAEL YOUNG / NOW MEDIA BEIRUT
Treading water in Syria – The United States & Russia create an illusion of progress
1 June 2016 – Though the cessation of hostilities in Syria, or what remains of it, has been in place since late February, the general consensus is that the Syrian war is not any closer to a resolution than it was then. In fact, at the time there was still the illusion that the Geneva process might be implemented, while today it is increasingly obvious that there is no will to make it work. In this context, the policies of the United States and Russia are paradoxical. Read all : http://www.mesop.de/?p=74585
MESOP TODAYS COMMENTARY ABOUT BOUALEM SANSAL’S BOOK / THE LAST DAYS OF EUROPE
Algerian Author: Islam Will Split European Society
By Chris Tomlinson – Breitbart – 2016-06-01 19:45 GMT – Algerian writer and best selling author Boualem Sansal paints a bleak vision of Europe’s future in his new work 2084: The End of the World, the title evoking George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Mr. Sansal sees a Europe –not governed by a totalitarian Big Brother as Mr. Orwell did, but rather — subjugated by radical Islam. Read all : http://www.mesop.de/?p=74560
MESOP Syria Analysis: Why Do Young Syrians Join Extremist Groups? A REPRESENTATIVE RELEVANT STUDY BY THE “INTERNATIONAL-ALERT” GROUP
International Alert, a peace-building organization, offers answers based on the experiences of 311 young Syrians, their families and community members in Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. The research also includes study of online forums, and monitoring and evaluation from projects in 13 locations.
The study concludes — in contrast to many of the headlines in international media — that political and religious “radicalization” is not the primary cause of young people join factions such as the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra.Instead, the economic and social situation of each person is the key factor. Unsurprisingly, once you get beyond misleading generalizations, the catalysts are the effects of violence and the lack of education and opportunity. SUMMARY : http://www.mesop.de/?p=74580
WEST KURDISTAN (SYRIA)
MESOP FOCUS :“We Will Liberate Syria’s Aleppo”
June 02 – By Scott Lucas – eaworldview – Iran’s Defense Minister has issued another bold declaration that, despite suffering losses in Syria, Iranian forces will help bring victory in its largest city Aleppo.
Hossein Dehghan said on Wednesday at a university conference: We are helping in Syria and Iraq as much as we can because a part of the Muslim community has been under attack and we are defending it… because Islam and Islamic lands are important to us….Aleppo is a strategic location, and the terrorists are trying to dominate it. Ultimately, however, the occupied area of this Syrian province will be liberated by the Resistance Front [Iran, Hezbollah, and the Assad regime]. Read all: http://www.mesop.de/?p=74556
MESOP REPORT Syria Daily: A Token Shipment of Aid to Besieged Darayya
Report By Scott Lucas – eaworldview – 2 June 2016
Aid has reached besieged Darayya, southwest of Syria’s capital Damascus, for the first time since November 2012 — only to bring more frustration, anger, and even suspicion that the delivery was a token staged by the Assad regime to deflect international pressure.Wednesday began with an announcement by Assad’s ally Russia that a 48-hour ceasefire had been arranged — only a day after the latest aerial and ground attacks on the town — so the assistance could reach Darayya.

MESOP COMMENTARY BY Hussain Abdul-Hussain – NOWMEDIA BEIRUT
Why does battling ISIS in Fallujah look bad?
1 June 2016 – Some Iraqi forces attempting to capture the city are depicting the battle in overtly sectarian terms: Battling ISIS is welcome news any day, any time. But there is something unsettling about Baghdad’s war on Fallujah. No matter how hard one tries, Fallujah looks like a Shiite war on Sunnis. Iraqi Shiites are offended over such characterization, often insisting that their war is a national Iraqi fight against the terrorists of ISIS. But visual evidence suggests otherwise.

MESOP SPECIAL : The Return of Bernard Lewis / ESSAY BY MARTIN KRAMER
Forty years ago, nobody foresaw the rise of radical Islam—except for the preeminent historian who both predicted and explained it, and much else besides.
Martin Kramer is president of Shalem College in Jerusalem. His new book, The War on Error: Israel, Islam, and the Middle East, is forthcoming from Transaction in the fall.
As the year 1976 opened, the Middle East hardly seemed poised for a great transformation. The shah of Iran remained firmly seated on his peacock throne. Off in Iraqi exile, an elderly Iranian cleric named Ayatollah Khomeini nursed his grievances in obscurity. Anwar Sadat, Egypt’s confident president, had the country under his thumb; the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots languished in ineffectual opposition. In Saudi Arabia, a young man named Osama bin Laden finished his education in an elite high school, where he had worn a tie and blazer. Since the previous summer, Lebanon had been roiled by battles, according to Western reportage, between “leftists” and “rightists.” A key player there was the Palestine Liberation Organization under Yasir Arafat, darling of the international left and champion of a “democratic, secular state” in Palestine: Read all – http://www.mesop.de/?p=74587
THE GERMAN KURDISH CHAPTER
MESOP REPORT : DIE BERLINER SYRIEN-KONFERENZ – Nichts ist gut in Palmyra
01.06.2016, von Hermann Parzinger
Das Vorderasiatische Museum der Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz hatte in den vergangenen Wochen syrische Restauratoren zu Gast. Sie erzählten natürlich von zu Hause, von Bomben und Zerstörungen, vom Willen zum Weiterleben. Ins Archäologische Zentrum der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin waren sie jedoch vor allem gekommen, um von ihren deutschen Kollegen zu erfahren, wie man sehr empfindliche und durch die schwierigen Lagerungsbedingungen im bürgerkriegsgeschüttelten Syrien besonders gefährdete Objekte erhalten und bewahren kann.

MESOP : Die Stimme Teherans im deutschen Radio – Von Stefan Frank / MENA MAI 2016
Reinhard Baumgarten arbeitet für den SWR als Korrespondent in Teheran. Er leidet an einer Berufskrankheit: übermäßiger Faszination für das Studienobjekt. So, wie mancher Virologe ins Schwärmen gerät, wenn er von der Wunderwelt der Viren und deren verblüffenden Fähigkeiten spricht, so findet Baumgarten, wann immer er das Ajatollah-Regime unter seinem Elektronenmikroskop betrachtet, ständig neue, bislang unbekannte Demokratiemoleküle, Freiheitspartikel und Pluralismusproteine, die noch nie zuvor ein Mensch gesehen hat und die ihm das Gefühl geben, auf wichtiger Mission zu sein: das Image eines antisemitischen Folter- und Mordregimes aufzupolieren. – Volltext : http://www.mesop.de/?p=74567
