Ghayath Naisse: The “Islamic State” and the counter-revolution
International Socialism Journal nr. 147, jul 15 – side 75
Note: According to the world’s media outlets and major heads of state, a new threat has been looming over “world peace” since June 2014—the threat of ISIS. ISIS was presented as an imminent danger and, far from being constrained to the Arab world, it threatened the “national security” of Western and Eastern imperialist states.
Anne Alexander: ISIS and counter-revolution: towards a Marxist analysis
International Socialism Journal nr. 145, jan 15 – side 47
Note: Four years after the Arab revolutions of 2011 the hopes that the uprisings kindled seem to have been all but extinguished. Libya, Syria and Iraq present grim variations on the theme of “failed states”. Meanwhile, a United States-led military coalition of Western powers and their Arab allies is back in action in northern Iraq and Syria, justifying their intervention with the same “humanitarian” rhetoric that provided cover for the catastrophic occupation of Iraq after 2003.
Alex Callinicos: Analysis: Nemesis in Iraq
International Socialism Journal nr. 143, jul 14 – side 3
Note: To justify the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, George W Bush and Tony Blair argued that the country belonged under Saddam Hussein to an “axis of evil” of “failed states” (the others were Iran and North Korea) that were a danger to themselves and others. But if ever there was a failed state, it is the Iraqi regime that emerged from the occupation following the invasion, as the sudden fall of Mosul to a coalition of forces headed by the jihadis of ISIS in mid-June has shown.
Alistair W + Simon Assaf: Revolt keeps spreading throughout the region
Socialist Worker nr. 2240, feb 11 – side 5

Simon Assaf: Fra Libyen og Bahrain til resten af regionen: Oprørene fortsætter med at sprede sig
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 306, feb 11 
Note: En storm af revolutioner, opstande og revolter fortsætter med at tordne gennem hele Mellemøsten. Dens hastighed og omfang kan gøre én forpustet.
Sami Ramadani: Brutality made in the USA
Socialist Worker nr. 2237, feb 11 – side 10
Note: Empty shell casings from munitions used by Mubarak’s security forces against protesters bear “Made in the USA” markings. This reminds me of the role a former US administration played in crushing another great uprising in 1991.
Jonathan Maunder: Babylon: Myth and Reality
Socialist Worker nr. 2130, dec 08 – side 11
Note: Jonathan Maunder explores a new exhibition about the city of Babylon’s continuing relevance
Iraq: Basra rises against wage cuts

Anne Alexander: Reviews – Books: Patrick Cockburn: Muqtada al-Sadr and the Fall of Iraq
Socialist Review nr. 325, maj 08 – side 26
Note: "The most dangerous man in Iraq" is how Newsweek described Muqtada al-Sadr in December 2006. The young Shia cleric has certainly been cast in many contradictory roles. Is he a leader of Iraqi Arab resistance to the US occupation, or a tool of Iran? A commander of sectarian death squads or a force for Iraqi unity?
Anne Alexander: Review: Iraq's women: more than victims
International Socialism Journal nr. 116, okt 07 – side 185
Note: Nadje Al-Ali, Iraqi Women: Untold Stories from 1948 to the Present (Zed Books, 2007), £14.99

Simon Assaf: Resisting the plans to control Iraq’s oil

Note: Iraqi union leader Hassan Jumaa Awad recently visited Britain to raise awareness of the US’s attempts to grab hold of his country’s oil resources

Note: The people of Basra and Baghdad will be joining next month’s global protest against the US and British occupation of Iraq.
Mikkel Birk Jespersen: Irak tre måneder efter valget: Fortsat modstand og problemer for USA
Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 242, apr 05 – side 8
Note: Hverken valget den 30. januar eller den efterfølgende sammensætning af en ny regering i Irak har løst de problemer, USA har med at holde landet besat.

Sabby Sagall: Iraq: The Lost Tradition
Socialist Review nr. 276, jul 03 – side 20
Note: There is a rich history of workers' struggles in Iraq.
Anne Alexander: Daring for victory: Iraq in revolution 1946-1959
International Socialism Journal nr. 99, jun 03 – side 83
Note: The Iraqi people are portrayed on our TV screens as victims-first of Saddam Hussein, then of US and UK bombs. Anne Alexander reveals the mass movements that shook Iraq in the 1940s and 1950s, when millions of workers and peasants rose up against imperialism.

Note: The 'war on terror' was meant to bring peace. Instead we are on the edge of much greater war with Iraq
Hvor farlig er Saddam?
Socialistisk Revy nr. 2, mar 98 – side 5
Note: I politikernes iver efter en ny Golfkrig fremstilles Iraks diktator Saddam Hussein som en trussel mod verdensfreden. Men hvor farlig er Saddam egentlig?
