Many people are surprised to hear that there is a black
minority of African descent in Iraq, particularly in Basra, and
they are even more surprised to hear that this minority is
being discriminated against and is falling victim to racism.

Ahead of regional talks in Bahrain, EU urged to focus
on worsening rights situation
Bahrain Center for Human Rights
The following is a letter sent by the Bahrain Center for
Human Rights and the Bahrain Youth Society for Human
Rights to the High Representative of the European Union

(EU)-Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) ministerial meeting
urging her to make a determined effort in pushing for

Syria’s Metastasising Conflicts
Two years, scores of thousands of dead, a mushrooming
regional sectarian war and millions of refugees and
internally displaced later, the Syrian war is tying the
international community in knots largely of its own making.
Once confident of swift victory, the opposition’s foreign allies
shifted to a paradigm dangerously divorced from reality: that
military pressure would force the regime to alter its calculus
so that it would either negotiate its demise or experience
internal cracks leading to its collapse. That discounted the
apparent determination of Iran, Hizbollah and Russia to do
what it takes to keep the regime afloat and bring the armed
opposition to its knees. It counted without the fecklessness
of an opposition in exile fighting for a share of power it has
yet to achieve. And it assumed that the Assad regime has a
“calculus” susceptible to be changed, not merely a fighting
mode designed to last. It is past time to get over false hopes
and confront a harsh truth. The options that dominate the
policy debate would deepen the crisis, not produce a
credible exit from it.
