    Germany’s September poll overshadowed by Trump, populism 

    CNN's Fareed Zakaria on his GPS program said in February that “a senior European leader who attended the Munich Security Conference last week (17-19 Feb.) observed that despite some reassuring words from senior American officials, many of us are convinced that the White House is trying to elect Le Pen in France and defeat Merkel in Germany. And there is heavy talk Stephen Bannon about weakening the European Union and destroying the established order.”

    ‘It is Europe that will decide the fate of the world’

    The future of Europe, it seems, has always been a compelling topic to discuss, amongst the most diverse circles of society. Shifts in political power, the surge in nationalism, EU-skepticism, Donald Trump’s unforeseen win of U.S. presidency – all contribute to a growing disillusionment with the future of a stable and prosperous Europe.

    Trump trapped in Orientalism, racism, and imperialist system

    History is written by the winners and victors. Therefore, they always find an excuse to justify obscene and unjust behavior. Race has been one of the most preliminary concepts for that use, because some races have tapped their unquestionable superiority to justify all their abominable behavior as well as the ineptitude of other races.

    Analysis: The rise of Europe’s far right

    The Brexit, the terrorist attacks, the uncontrollable influx of immigrants from war-torn countries, the unthinkable victory of Donald Trump in U.S. presidential elections and a meager economic growth. The tumultuous situation of today’s Europe is not to be underestimated and serves as the foundation for populist and strongly nationalistic, anti-migrant and anti-EU parties that are slowly gaining ground on the European political sphere amid a growing disillusionment with the European Union.

    Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Baku is doomed to fail. The trip can only temporarily provide news stories for Israeli media outlets so that they can carry out a plan to end the regime’s isolation.
