you can do it. 19 McCrystal’s comments are reflective of the broad tendency within radical republican discourse which locates the republican struggle within the wider context, arguing that the republican campaign is no less just than the British going to war. Radical republicans have largely refused to make a distinction between republican armed struggle and wars which have been propagated by the British, thus rejecting their war as ‘terrorism’ as distinct from wars undertaken by the British.

prepared to go. At the 1986 Sinn Féin Ard Fheis, Ruairí Ó Brádaigh echoed the argument of MacSwiney: ‘with regards to Councils, Sinn Féin has always been in the councils and that is as near to the enemy system that we dare to go.’ 40 In the state of Northern Ireland RSF do not presently contest council elections due to the ‘test oath’. The declaration against terrorism, which is part of the Elected Authorities (Northern Ireland Act 1989), states: Part 1 Form for inclusion in consent to nomination I declare that, if elected, I

Muslim integration in Britain - a theoretical and analytical framework
Sarah Hackett

popular accusations and debates regarding conflict and incompatibility that British Muslim communities have found themselves at the centre of, especially since the turn of the twenty-first century.

They have become the main protagonists in allegations of parallel lives, the retreat from political multiculturalism and the perceived need for

kept his eye on. Perhaps this explains his ‘fright’ when he was personally confronted with concerns about a new antisemitism coming not from the right but from the left. He recommended for publication a book by a Marxist philosopher who drew certain conclusions about the conflict in Israel-Palestine that Habermas did not share: notably in his failure to ‘distinguish political evaluation of Palestinian terrorism from the moral justification of it’. 50 Habermas

weight to an argument, whether or not there is an actual relation between what is claimed to be morally right and what is legally right according to the norms of international law. Fourth, humanitarian and human rights law form a complex array of norms, and different parties tend to pick and choose those aspects that favour their interests or convictions. One side may be well disposed to those elements of international law that outlaw terrorism but not those that relate to the

Uses and critiques of ‘civilisation’
Jeremy C.A. Smith

occurrence of isolated societies is less common than is often believed. In a contemporary world context of tensions and conflicts (whether of global inequalities, poverty and increasing ecological calamities, or around violence, war and terrorism), an argument that there is a profusion of webs of social cooperation evident in past societies need not be an indulgence in the innocent pastime of historical curiosity. Instead, it can be a potent argument about a diverse range of social formations and what their connections and conflicts suggest about how to confront the

As an American journalist wrote: ‘everybody’s favourite soldier of fortune is an Israeli with military experience’ (Johnson 2010 : n.p.). To illustrate this phenomenon, I will start with an example. A security company owned by an Israeli in the United States (US) was asked to set up security checkpoints in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina

A discourse view on the European Community and the abolition of border controls in the second half of the 1980s
Stef Wittendorp

possible unemployment facing border guards was a marginal issue in the EC context. A predominant concern of the member states, various MEPs, and the Commission, while willing to remove obstacles to facilitate flows across the EC, was how to address crime, drug trafficking, terrorism, and immigration in the absence of border controls (European Parliament 1985a : 234; European Parliament 1985b : 247, 249
