Another day, another Jihad

Another day, another Jihad called on Israel. If you were to ascend to the role of Iran’s highest religious authority, the enshrined and supreme Ayatolah, would you not feel the awful recoil associated with unoriginality when making such an announcement? Despite the Sunni majority in “Palestine,” America’s premier Sunni boogymen, such as ISIS or any of its previous incarnations, have seldom made any signs of aggression towards Israel.  More so, sworn Sunni enemies of Israel like Saudi Arabia and Egypt have exchanged their Jihad calls for business meetings, finding scores of financially beneficial dealings more agreeablel than the traditional practice...

The Instagram Slave Market

With so much discussion in America regarding the aftermath of slavery, we surprisingly tend to be reasonably passive as a society about current forms of human marketplaces. Take, for example, Kuwait, where 9 out of 10 households have a “domestic worker.” Most workers come from the poorest countries in the world. “4Sale,” an actual slave marketplace app, features pitches such as "African worker, clean and smiling" and "Nepalese who doesn’t dare to ask for a day off.” Most vendors advocated confiscating women's passports.     In the majority of circumstances in the Gulf, workers are brought into the country by...
