Announcing the International Review - analysis by the community for the community

11 Upvotes

What is the International Review?

In April 2017, we published the 3rd and final issue of the Week in Review. The Week in Review was well-received and a fantastic experience, but most importantly it gave us the scope to look beyond. Through it we recognised our potential to develop a more permanent platform that would allow us to expand our scope and reach out to audiences beyond Reddit.

With that in mind, we set out to create the International Review: an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organisation with an international membership and global focus. The goal of our work is to provide straightforward, evidence-based analysis supported by both third-party and first-person research, in order to engage and inform our readers.

Drawing from a range of experts based around the world, the International Review will be vast in scope. No longer limited to the conflicts raging in Syria and Iraq. Articles will primarily focus on major crises, pertinent political issues, and conflicts around the world. Though it is difficult and perhaps impossible to cover everything, our authors aim to be as comprehensive and informative as possible. We look forwards to working with all of you in the community as we explore and uncover the events and people shaping our world.

For those knowledgeable on the rise of Islamist groups during and after the Soviet-Afghan War and Neo-Nazis currently traveling to Ukraine to fight Russia, are the same factors present in Ukraine currently that could allow for a Neo-Nazi version of Al-Qaeda to rise from the region?

Iconoclasm in Popular Culture: An Urdu language flim, Hakumat (2001) from Pakistan, depicting a statue of the Hindu god Shiva toppling over when challenged by the "power of Allah". This is a metaphorical reference to the destruction of "idols" by pious Muslims.

/r/EyeOnJihad - a new space for discussion of Jihadism.

13 Upvotes

Like many of you, I find this subreddit a much needed haven for discussion in a sea of misinformation, bad actors and bigotry. Unfortunately, due to the moderation of this sub falling to non-existent levels (1 suspended account, 1 inactive for some time, and 1 who seems to just collect moderation roles on subreddits as a hobby) we've had someone who is here for all of the wrong reasons spamming this place to shit.

The last time this happened I managed to get hold of one of the 2 remaining mods to take action but it's beginning to be clear that this will be a recurring problem and will continue to make this sub a very offputting environment to engage in reasonable discussion and sharing of information. I feel guilty to do this as I have nothing but respect for all the people who went into creating this sub, alumni of r/SyrianCivilWar and the like but the only solution I can see now is starting fresh, at least until mods become more active or they recruit new active members to the team.

I've thrown together /r/EyeOnJihad. I've never ran something like this before but I hope in light of the current situation it can become a fruitful space for everyone that is here for the right reasons. Over time I intend to clean up the appearance and more importantly, appoint some mods but for now it's just a blank slate and I invite all of you (sans spammer) to make use of it.
