Islamophobia has replaced anti-semitism as the unifying ideology for the extreme right in Austria where neo-fascist rivals Heinz-Christian Strache and Jorg Haider utilised slogans such as “Homeland instead of Islam” and “Vienna must not become Istanbul” to make huge gains in last week’s national elections at the expense of the Conservative OeVP and Social Democrats SPOe parties . As the elections were taking place more than 90 Muslim graves were severely damaged at the cemetery in Traun, near Linz in what police believe was an organised action. read full story / add a comment

Obama has lost in ten of the last 12 opinion polls for the United States presidential election, 2008. His margin has between a 6point loss in the first week of September and a 4point loss in the last three days. Those who know how the USA voting public works blame this losing streak on Palin. It certainly seems to make sense as of the 57 US nationwide polls carried out thus far Mc Cain has only won 12.

Jonathan Freedland in today's "Guardian" represents well the disbelief of European journalists & to a great extent intellectuals that the voters of the USA, those enfranchised alone to make a decision which affects us all seem about to deride our faith & hope of the change Obama promised.

I on the other hand believe that the opinion poll data only confirms how little Europeans as well as US Democrats understood one of the most important socio-historical shifts in US citizens' perception of their own institutions & government. I argue that they've finally realised the importance of their vice-president. read full story / add a comment

Ogra Shinn Fein have produced a youth election broadcast for the upcoming by election in Enniskillen on Wednesday 17 September.

The youth electon broadcast urges young people from the relevant electoral ward to come out and vote for Sinn Fein’s candidate Debbie Coyle and visualises the advances that Sinn Fein have made in recent times.

It also includeds a number of short interviews with Mary Lou McDonald MEP and Fermanagh/South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

And it traces the strong legacy of republican candidates being elected in Fermanagh, most notably, the election of Bobby Sands MP, whilst on Hungerstrike in 1981.

On his recent visit to Jordan Israel and Ramallah US presidential candidate Obama Barrack insisted that nobody in his party should wear green because of the colour’s association with Islam and Hamas. At a June campaign rally in Detroit two women wearing headscarves were told to leave the area behind the podium where Obama was speaking from so as to prevent them being framed in the same shot by cameras covering the event. A Counterpunch article by Rannie Amiri on how Barrack Obama has moved from being a victim to a perpetuator of Islamophobia.

It has been alleged that Proinsias De Rossa, who is due to retire as MEP for Dublin at the next election, was involved in scuffle outside the Labour Party Meeting at Liberty Hall in Dublin last night. The meeting was to discuss the upcoming Lisbon Treaty referendum.

Reports say that De Rossa tried to take a video camera away from someone who was filming him, in a public place, outside the meeting. In the scuffle he fell and while he was on the ground, somebody sat on him, it is claimed.

Younger readers may not be aware of the the long political journey of Mr De Rossa, who was once a strong supporter of the IRA, and spent time in prison in the 1950's. read full story / add a comment

The British National Party is urging its members to drop anti-semitism in favour of Islamophobia in order to win votes ahead of May’s assembly elections in London . Its leader ,Nick Griffin ,has written in favour of “adopting an 'Islamophobic' position that appeals to large numbers of ordinary people”. Targeting Zionist voters and former supporters of the ,now largely defunct , UK Independence Party , the BNP expects to pick up the necessary votes to win at least one seat in the election . One of its councillor , Pat Richardson , is quoted in today’s Guardian saying :
"I'm in the BNP because no one else speaks out against the Islamification of our country."
