Front page – From East to Eastwest: the pope, terrorism …


After 11 years as East, we felt the time had come to make the challenge we face clearer even in the magazine’s title: to offer a convincing interpretation of international affairs on a global scale and not necessarily with an oriental bias. Wherever a war is raging or a trade deal is being signed, the impact of today’s events cross national boundaries at the speed of the web, from east to west, north to south.

We had to decide the cover story for this new beginning and we had no doubts: Pope Francis is now launching an extraordinary jubilee at a time when the survival of our democratically organised communities here in Europe is at risk.

Our model of civil cohabitation is being severely tested. At first by these seven long years of dramatic economic crisis, now by these terrible and tragic terrorist attacks, which I have trouble referring to as Islamic, given the complexity of the issue. The ethnic and socio-economic marginalisation of our own suburbs will certainly have to be called into question, as this is where the holy fires of terrorism have developed, albeit in an amateurish (and clearly not militant) form, yet no less dangerous and worrying.
