8 Reasons Why Pakistan Needs Imran Khan to Win Elections and Become the Next Prime Minister

Imran Khan Pakistan

My title encapsulates a critical message.  It frames Pakistan needing Imran Khan, not the other way round. Of course,  Imran needs Pakistan for his sense of identity and belonging, but he does not need Pakistan or its top job for personal enrichment or popularity. This itself sets Imran Khan apart from most other politicians. Imran has been blessed with more ... Read More »

Islam and Libertarianism are a Good Fit


...the Qurʾānic verse is an endorsement of the fundamental principle of libertarianism, the Nonaggression Principle. This principle is articulated in the Maryland Libertarian Party Constitution (of which I am co-author): “No person or group has the right to initiate force or fraud against any other person or group to seek to attain their values.” This common sense principle is accepted by everyone in their daily lives, except for murderers, thieves, and con artists.

How the U.S. ought to Have Responded to the Palestinian Statehood Bid


Resignation to the interminability of the dilemma of Israel and Palestine only buys time for the further expansion of settlements, and thus further diminishes the likelihood that the problem will ever be solved.

How Could Any Muslim Want to Vote for McCain After This?

I believe the following videos (hat-tip to Br. Abdullah's email for pointing me to this post on Huff-Po) say so much more about the kind of campaign and the kind of voters that McCain is courting than anything the candidates could have said. While you see diversity among Obama supporters, what diversity do you see here? How would you, as ... Read More »
