I just had the pleasure of joining the twelfth iteration of the Beirut Exchange in early January, a 10-day political conference and exchange run by Mideastwire.com. While discussing the politics of Lebanon as well as Syria some 12-14 hours a day, I couldn't help but notice some of the terminological issues that came up as we talked about these issues in English and Arabic.

لا لاستخدام مسمى الدولة الإسلامية Jan 30, 2015

لقد قرأت مقالتك بتمعن ولن أعلق سوى على موضوع الدولة الإسلامية.
انا ضد هذه التسمية بالمطلق, بل واحذر الزملاء من الاحتذاء بالوسائل الإعلامية التي تستخدم هذه التسمية لسبب وجيه ألا وهو ان الترجمة رسالة , واستخدام المسميات له بعد اعمق من البعد اللغوي فحسب. فحين نسمي هذا التنظيم بالدولة, نسبغ عليه شرعية ونساعد على ترسيخ القبول بهذه الفكرة مستقبلا. اود ان احيلك هنا الى قاعدة مصطلحات الأمم المتحدة. فالاستخدام فيها صحيح 100 بالمئة.
الحذر ثم الحذر من هذه المزالق الخطرة.
هل هذه دولة مكتملة الأركان؟ هل تقبل فكرة ان تبادلها دولة اخرى العلاقات او غيره؟
الترجمة رسالة خطيرة وعلينا التنبه لمثل تلك الفخاخ.
