- Bassem Chit: Nationalism, resistance and revolution
International Socialism Journal nr. 145, jan 15 – side 99
Note: The reduction of current struggles in Lebanon and Syria in particular, and across the Middle East in general, to purely abstract nationalistic, sectarian and “identitarian” dimensions is one of the dominating features of the analytical and methodical logic of the Arab nationalist and Stalinist left.
- Anne Alexander: Capital and resistance in the Middle East
International Socialism Journal nr. 143, jul 14 – side 165
Note: A review of Gilbert Achcar, The People Want: A Radical Exploration of the Arab Uprising (Saqi, 2013), £17.99, and Adam Hanieh, Lineages of Revolt: Issues of Contemporary Capitalism in the Middle East (Haymarket, 2013), £14.99.
These important books make a significant contribution to our understanding of the revolutions of 2011 in the Arab world. Written from a regional perspective, and both mobilising an impressive range of comparative data, they represent the most significant attempts yet to grapple with the theoretical challenges of analysing this immense popular uprising from a Marxist perspective.

Socialist Worker nr. 2249, apr 11 – side 24

Socialist Worker nr. 2238, feb 11 – side 4
Note: Last week the “liberal” Israeli daily Haaretz carried a piece by one of its best-known columnists, Ari Shavit. “Two huge processes are happening right before our eyes,” he writes. “One is the Arab liberation revolution. The second process is the acceleration of the decline of the West.”

Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 270, jun 07 – side 8
Note: Midt i daglige rapporter fra Mellemøsten om kaos, „borgerkrig“, sult og flygtninge kan det være svært at se de større linier. Men meget har forandret sig det sidste år. USA’s plan for „et nyt Mellemøsten-kort“ – en afgørende del af „Projekt for det nye amerikanske århundrede“ – er i en fremskreden grad af sammenbrud.
- Neil Faulkner: Crusade and jihad in the medieval Middle East
International Socialism Journal nr. 109, dec 05 – side 127
Note: The debate about the Iraq war echoes with references to the conflict eight centuries ago between Christian Crusaders from Western Europe and the Islamic people of the Middle East. These echoes raise questions for socialists. How accurate is the traditional image of the Crusaders as chivalrous knights inspired by piety? Is there something inevitable and eternal about conflict between ‘the West’ and ‘the Orient’? To what degree can the conflicts of the medieval past inform our understanding of the present and provide a guide to action for the future?
- Irfan Habib: Critical notes on Edward Said
International Socialism Journal nr. 108, sep 05 – side 129
Note: Edward Said was rightly admired for his courageous opposition to the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Consequently many on the left also accepted all the arguments of his book Orientalism, including its criticisms of Marx. But, argues the eminent Indian historian Irfan Habib, these are completely misplaced.

Note: Traditionally the British left has been divided in two ways over the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. There are those who see the struggle as one between the competing nationalisms of the two groups. These have looked to ‘progressive forces’ within both camps to play a role in the dismantling of the sectarian aspects of the Israeli state.
