Breaking News:
Ghouta, Damascus: A famous, non-political, group known as Doctors without Frontiers stated on August 24 that its hospitals treated more than 3000 people suffering from chemo-toxic effects on the day of the attack by the Syrian regime. Of these 355 died.

This was censored by the US media and reported only by the BBC.

Egypt: Friday, August 23: Thousands of Egyptians came out to protest the August 14 massacre of peaceful demonstrators by the Egyptian military. They did not confront the military and stayed in the side streets of Cairo and other cities. They were carrying the 4 finger sign. Four in Arabic is RABIA, the name of the Rabia mosque where the military gunned down hundreds of civilians supporting President Morsi..Rabia was an Islamic woman in the early days of Islam and is known for her spirituality.

Earlier in the week. August 19, the Egyptian military killed 36 Muslim Brotherhood prisoners who were being transferred and started protesting. In response, a mujahideen group in the Sinai captured 25 members of the Egyptian security forces and executed them. Sounding more and more like Syria.

Also, on August 19, the military again fired on protestors killing 79. Massacre has become so much a part of Egyptian military activity that most of the American media did not report the killing of 79 unarmed protestors.

It's Called the Warsaw Syndrome: What is the US waiting for in Syria?. New Trend explains.

Syria: The uprising against Assad and the Alawites is in its third year. America has failed to intervene. More than 100,000 Syrians have been killed by Assad's tanks, artillery, helicopters, jet fighters and death squads known as Shabiha. Now there are huge chemical attacks on three suburbs around Damascus which have killed more than 1300 people.

US media are admitting that even the small arms the US promised in June for the secular section of the resistance have not materialised.

When the Security Council met after the chemical attacks, Obama's representative Samantha Powers skipped the meeting. Her representative did not say anything. Obama and Kerry are on vacation.

Now it looks like Obama might do something: New Trend explains below why the US has waited for 100,000 to be killed and for this massive chemical attack. Please scroll down, This is important.

Why King's 150,000 people march on TV and no mention of Farrakhan's Million Man March?
by Kaukab Siddique

The American power structure is celebrating the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's March on Washington. It is getting huge coverage on corporate media, particularly MSNBC [known as Obama cable] and CNN. Why so much government interest in the 50 year old march? It could be a way of telling African Americans that they never had it so good. Be grateful. Secondly it is the anthem of the emergent Black middle class. A sense of guilt there? They have it so good while unemployment, family disintegration, drugs and crimes is the lot of the Black population in general. An entire Black majority city, Detroit, has declared bankruptcy. Is racism gone because Obama is president and Holder is attorney general? Of course not.

Look at the police brutalities in almost every city directed at African Americans. Look at the burgeoning prison system. Who are the inmates? African Americans, poor whites and hispanics. So is it morally correct to tell African Americans, you never had it so good!

The most questionable aspect of this celebration is the re-writing of history.

Remember that's King's march had already received the support of many in the White power structure. Out of the 150,000 people who came to Washington in 1963, more than 60,000 were White and included almost 100 members of Congress. [Source: MSNBC August 24, 2013.] So it was certainly not a defiant march challenging the established system.

Rewriting history is a form of propaganda which turns opposing events into non-events. [Trotsky was turned into a non-person by the Communists.]

So we see the march led by Minister Farrakhan being ignored. It a was a MILLION MAN MARCH, many times bigger than Dr. King's march on October 16, 1995. The New York Times and the entire spectrum of Jewish organizations urged people not to attend. In fact more than a million people, mostly Black, were there. The Washington police for the first time did not write parking tickets as thousands of cars were parked up and down the city streets. [I was there all day and up to 9 PM.].

Repeatedly Min. Farrakhan has extended the hand lof friendship to Jews and invited Jews to his conferences. Yet the media ignored all that he said and continued to paint him as anti-semitic. When Obama went for the presidency, Min. Farrakhan gave him total support. Obama turned around and denounced Farrakhan. He wanted the support of Zionists and took his own people for granted.

Finally, Min. Farrakhan opposed the bombing of Libya. That was it. After that the major media pretended that Farrakhan does not exist.

Why are American Men Losing Interest in Women?

It's been quite a summer for women. The have shortened their clothes to the extent that they are amost naked. The short shorts have almost become underwear. Countless millions of dollars have been spent to show long, hairless, female legs. The necklines have plunged so much that the breasts are half visible.

In spite of all this desperate effort by the females, the males are not interested. Here is an incomplete list of the reasons why men are not impressed by the surge of female nudity.
  1. Women are easily available to men. Whether they are half dressed or one fourth dressed, men can pick them up without the slightest difficulty.

  2. The increasingly naked women look so much alike, it is as if the Jewish groups fashion designers have set up mass production units to make every woman look like every other woman. Men looking for someone "special" see todays women as more of a meat factory rather than a mysterious world where their "soul mate" may be hiding.

  3. Marriage is crumbling in America. There is hardly any marriage left. The 50% divorce rate is an old figure. Looks like it must be a 100% divorce rate by now.

  4. Men are not interested in getting married. Women are not even trying to get men to marry. They "shack up" and after a while the government accepts the "shacker uppers" as married couples.

  5. The surge of homosexuality has been hard on women who want to attract men. Increasingly men are inteterested in other men.Perverts are now seen as normal people. So why try to hide the perversion? The President of the United States is leading the homosexual movement. The only way to counter the male homosexual indifference to women is for women to withdraw into lesbianism. Again the perversions are being viewed as "normal."

  6. Jewish controlled media like NPR are claiming that homosexuals are actually better human beings than heterosexuals. NPR [National Public Radio] presents hour long specials on great homosexuals.

  7. Zionists in the TV media don't want to be left behind in supporting the virtues of sodomy and whatever-lesbians-do. As a conservative commentator noted, MSNBC's self-declared lesbian [and pro-Zionist] Rachel Maddow visits the White House more often than King Abdullah, the playboy ruler of Jordan.

  8. Another big reason why men see women only as vehicles of pleasure rather than human beings is the tremendous growth of drug addiction. Heroin use has brecome almost as widespread as apple pie used to be in old America. Businesses check employees for drug use but the employees [males] have learned how to deceive the tests.

  9. Heroin use among White people is now so widespread with such serious social consequences that the power structure has decided to legalize marijuana. If the young replace heroin with marijuana, at least they will not self-destruct.

  10. The habits of the men are dripping into the souls of the women. They do whatever men want them to do. Both young and old women, in increasing numbers, try to dress as sluts or prostitutes used to dress. They have learned that men want them to look and dress and behave like sluts [with the Zionist media working as the support base of the male idea of undressing women].

  11. Crimes against women are common in America. Every city has its horror story. The men are treating women as if women are slaves to be used for sex at earlier and earlier ages.. Recently New York state ruled that contraceptives should be available to girls whatever their age, even if they are 13 or below. The Obama administration objected that the girls should be at least 15 to get contraceptives but a month later withdrew the objection.

  12. Rape has undergone a strange permutation in America. Erin Burnette reported on CNN on August 22, 2013, that in 31 states rapists have parental rights over the children of the women they raped. There are more than 32,000 pregnancies from rape every year. The issue came up when a rapist demanded parental rights on the child of his victim. He had raped her when she was 14 and he was 20. She went to court to resist his demand. [The court's decision has not come out yet.]

1300 plus, including 200 children, killed, in Assad's Chemical Attacks on Damascus Suburbs.
Assad denies. [Artillery barrages continued on August 22 and 23, denying access to the area.]

August 21: The chemical warfare began at dawn. It was given cover by a tremendous barrage of Assad's heavily artillery and a series of air strikes on Ghouta and two other suburbs of Damascus. These areas have been stubbornly defended by al-Nusra mujahideen against repeated offensives by the Alawite elites to drive them out. It appearts that Assad finally decided to kill the entire population.

The artillery barrages drove the people inside and then the chemical cloud killed them At least 1300 people are dead. Of these more than 200 are children. At least 50 mujahideen were also killed but the rest were civilians. Their crime: They support the Islamic resistance.

The Syrian regime immediately dismissed reports of the chemical attack. Assad's regime as usual claimed that those it killed were "terrorists." Outside inspectors checking on previous chemical attacks were in Syria but till August 24, Assad did not permit them to visit the areas of the huge chemical attacks in areas very close to Damascus.

[Photo provided by the people of Arbaeen where one of Assad's chemical attacks took place.

However, the photos of the dead, including children clearly show that they are not the victims of artillery or jet fighters. They seem to be asleep in their coffin clothes. We are publishing some of these photos. Please scroll down to end. [Do not let children view these horrors.]

The Warsaw Syndrome: Why is the US not intervening in Syria?
by Kaukab Siddique

In the last year of the Soviet offensive against Germany, a huge Russian army approached the capital of Poland, Warsaw. As the Soviets massed across from Waraw, only the Vistula river separated them from a small German force in the city.

The people of Warsaw, the Polish resistance, rose up against the German army. The people thought that with the Russians right across the river, it will soon be all over for German troops. The Polish uprising was ruthlessly suppressed by the Germans. The fighting went on day after, street by street, in the city. The Russians across the river didn't fire a shot. They wanted to make sure that Polish independence forces were thoroughly crushed. The Poles fought with great heroism and sacrifices but were no match for the well trained elite German troops.

After the Poles had been killed, the Russians marched right in and the Germans withdrew. The Communist Party was given charge of Poland and those who had fought against the Germans were hunted down.

The US successfully tried the Warsaw syndrome in Bosnia and then in Kosova. The Americans waited and waited till the Muslims, poorly armed, had been almost crushed. Then the Americans came in as saviors mostly through air attacks..

Now in Syria, the US can see that most of the resistance to Assad is hard core Islamic. Even after 100,000 deaths, the US did not publicize any details of the atrocities Assad and the Alawites have committed. Russia, Iran and Hizbullah have been giving outright weapons and on-the-ground support to Assad while America has been dithering. Without al-Nusra and other mujahideen, Syria would have been totally under Assad's boot.

Now with the massive chemical attacks, America is trying to see if the Islamics are done for, so that it can start to be the SAVIOR of the Syrian people.

We have news for the Saudi king, puppet of US imperialism. His blatant and shameless support for the Egyptian General Sisi, with $8 billion dollars given to the tyrant to kill Muslims, has come up against the true spirit of Islam. The Ulama of Islam in "Saudi" Arabia have issued a powerful statement in support of President Morsi and the Islamic movement in Egypt. This might be the beginning of the end of the hegemony of the Saudi family. We had received the Arabic text from several readers but with thanks we received the translation from Br. Khalid Baig, Br. Hussain Khan, Tokyo, Br. and Saleem Khalid. Owing to its historic nature, we have published the complete text, Arabic, with English translation.

Who could have thought that the Ulama would oppose the corrupt and terroristic Saudi family so boldly, alhamdulillah.

Mass Rally by Islamic Women in Karachi in support of Egypt's Imprisoned President Morsi. August 20

The women in the photo are holding up hundreds of green Islamic banners. Also you can see placards with four fingers of the hand. FOUR is rabi'a in Arabic, the name of the famous mosque in Cairo where on August 14 Egypt's military forces killed hundreds of unarmed protestors and injured several thousand. Rabia al-Adawia was an Islamic woman of the early era of Islam who was famous for her spirituality, piety and integrity.[The rally was addressed by Jamaate Islami leader Munawar Hasan, with Karachi JI leader Muhammad Hussain Mahnati on his left. ]

Why are Latinos and Latinas Turning to Islam? How you can Help.
by Robert Solano [Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora leader, Texas.]

We often come into contact with Spanish-speaking Americans or Latinos, as many like to call themselves, that reverted to Islam and we ask them why or how they did it. Most feel joy in telling us about their good fortune and about how Allah's blessing in allowing them into the path to salvation came about.

Some did it as a result of a co-worker or a neighbor being nice enough to introduce them to Islam. Others have acquired the knowledge in either a prison or a school where they have met Muslims. It is a common misconception that those that learn about Islam in prison leave Islam when they leave prison. I was recently talking to a very devout Latino Muslim who took his Shahada while doing five years in a Texas prison. He came from a working class family that taught him to respect the law and the community. Unfortunately, he came into what some call "recreational drug use" and before you knew it he was a retailer in the drug trade. He admits he had to pay for his wrongdoing and for his addiction.

After a year in prison, he told me that he started to read on his own different translations of the New Testament. He knew nothing about Islam nor even knew that it existed. He noticed Muslim prisoners move around but none attempted to share religion with him. He was already convinced that the Bible had been altered or interpolated somehow and that something was not right with it. It was "clear as night and day" he stated.

Then one day a young African-American allowed him to read what the Muslim called, "an interpretation in English of the Qur'an". He simply asked that the Book be treated with respect and that he was willing to explain anything that did not seem clear. Before long this young Latino-man was reading everything he could get a hold of about Islam. He read mostly in Spanish but also was able to do so with some English translations of Hadiths. But what is more important to this story is that he had the help of Muslims in his quest to learn and to do the right thing.

Alhamdulillah, I have not heard of a single case where some Latino or Latina who has taken a Shahada that has "backed out" of his or her commitment to Islam. But we can't do it alone, we need the help of somebody that follows Islam and wants to help us in doing the same. It is the duty of every Muslim (without compulsion), to share his or her knowledge about the Five Pillars of Islam with others; and the rest is up to those that have been given the chance. If Allah wills it, the individual will revert to Islam.

I can't see a Muslim working side by side with a non-muslim and NEVER even mentioning one pillar of Islam to that person. I realize that people sometimes are afraid to talk about religion and that generally people are afraid to ask. But we should do it. Many Latinos are surprised to learn that we have a whole chapter in the Qur'an about "Mary" and the virgin birth of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) and they take no offense if we mention it to them. The seed is planted and the rest is left to Allah.

Stop Complaining. Lessons from the Blessed Month of Ramadan.
from Imam Badi Ali, Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora leader, North Carolina.
  1. Avoid whining and complaining.

  2. People complain about everything nowadays, be it expenses, travel difficulties, cell phones not working, the weather is too hot or too rainy or windy, etc.

  3. Complaining has become the disease of our times. People have become like children, whining all the time.

  4. Families suffer from this syndrome. The TV is not working, i wanted to see that show, this is not the food I wanted, why is my food not ready, etc.

  5. The wife suffers the most because she works the most and is the most patient.

  6. From Ramadan, we should have learned self control. Let's remind ourselves.

  7. We should have learned understanding and forgiveness. Let's bring it forth.

  8. Don't find fault. Find a remedy. Don't be negative. Don't complain.

  9. Instead of complaining about the wind, steady the sails of your boat.

  10. Your complaining reflects on you. Instead of Egypt and Syria, we are concerned with little things all the time.

  11. Complain to Allah who alone can change things. Go to prayer.

  12. Worry about Jannah. Do something about it.

  13. Do not listen to those who complain..

Israel Working Hard to get European Support for Egypt's General Sisi.
US Military Forces Cross Egyptian Air Space to help Israel without Warning.

Israel is planning to intensify its diplomatic campaign urging Europe and the United States to support the military-backed government in Egypt, a senior Israeli official involved in the effort told the New York TimesSunday.

According to the official, Israeli ambassadors in Washington, London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels and other capitals would lobby foreign ministers. At the same time, leaders here will press the case with diplomats from abroad that the military is the only hope to prevent further chaos in Cairo.

"We're trying to talk to key actors, key countries, and share our view that you may not like what you see, but what's the alternative?" the official explained. "If you insist on big principles, then you will miss the essential — the essential being putting

A Dirty War: With thanks to CLG [Citizens for Legitimate Government.]
American forces used eight-year-old boy to plant a chip on his stepfather so they could kill him in a drone strike

16 Aug 2013 A shocking new story reveals that the U.S. army inadvertently had an 8-year-old boy turn into a spy and place electronic tracking devices on his surrogate father so that they could spot him and kill him in a scheduled drone attack. The 8-year-old boy and his biological father have confessed to helping spy on the al Qaeda officer, and now the biological father is believed to have been executed while the fate of the young boy remains unknown. The thorough story was reported by The Atlantic, who claim that the boy, named Barq al-Kulyabi, helped lead American drones to an al Qaeda operative named Adnan al-Qadhi who had been placed on the U.S. 'kill list' due to his [alleged] role in the Yemeni branch of the terrorist organization.
[This 'government,' day by day, is starting to resemble the 'Visitors' in the 1980s and 2009 miniseries, 'V.' We need to start thinking in terms of how those resistance fighters handled the problem. --LRP]

Growing Awareness of the Reality of Israeli Policy and Jewish-Zionist Power

Mark Weber
- Podcast

As Israel and the Jewish-Zionist lobby in the US press for war against Iran, awareness is growing everywhere about the realities of the Israel-Palestine conflict, the harmful impact of Israel's policies, and the crucial role of the Jewish lobby in setting US foreign policy. A bold statement by travel guru Rick Steves ("I've been duped") about deceitful US media coverage of the Israel-Palestine conflict, and a stern warning by German author Günter Grass about the danger to world peace posed by Israel, are just two recent signs that attitudes are changing, even in countries that have been ......

يان علماء السعودية حول انقلاب مصر
The declaration of the Saudi scholars regarding the coup in Egypt
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

الحمد لله رب العالمين؛ ولي الصالحين وناصر المظلومين، قاصم الجبابرة والظالمين، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آله وصحابته أجمعين.. أما بعد: فإن ما وقع في مصر من انقلاب عسكري نفذه وزير الدفاع الفريق عبدالفتاح السيسي على الرئيس المنتخب الدكتور محمد مرسي، وما تلا ذلك من إجراءات قمعية وملاحقات أمنية بحق أغلبية الشعب المصري من مؤيدي الرئيس، ومصادرة ومنع وسائل التعبير التي تنقل معاناتهم ووجهة نظرهم.. أمر أقض مضاجع المسلمين، وينذر بمستقبل مخيف بدت نذره واضحة.. وقد حرصنا على التأني في اتخاذ موقف محدد من الأحداث رغم وضوح اتجاهها في الجملة حتى لا تُقرأ مواقفنا بصورة خاطئة..

أما وقد مضى أكثر من شهر على الانقلاب، ووقع من الانقلابيين ما شاهده العالم من عنف وقتل متعمد ذهب ضحيته مئات القتلى وآلاف المصابين، ومن اصطفاف مستنكر للقوات المسلحة والأمن مع أقلية من الشعب تم سوقها لتأييد الانقلاب تحت تأثير حملات التشويه الإعلامي أو لدوافع طائفية أو فكرية بهدف فرض واقع جديد بالقوة، فقد تعيّن على أهل العلم إزاء هذه التطورات الخطيرة في الحال والمآل، بما أخذ الله عليهم من واجب البيان، وما بوأهم من مكانة وريادة في شئون الأمة أن يبينوا الموقف الشرعي مما يجري في مصر، وحقيقة الظروف السابقة له والمآلات المتوقعة لمثل هذا الانقلاب.. على النحو التالي:

More than a month has passed since the coup. The perpetrators of the coup have committed acts of violence and aggression witnessed by the world resulting in hundreds dead and thousands wounded. (The world has also witnessed) an evil arraying of ranks from the army and the police and a minority of the people who were driven to support the coup either under the influence of devious media campaigns or for sectarian or ideological interests with the goal of imposing a new order by force.

In the face of these perilous developments—for now and in the future—it is the responsibility of the people of knowledge—with the obligation that Allah has placed upon them of speaking the truth and by virtue of the position of leadership that He has granted them over the matters of the Ummah—that they clarify the position of the Shariah with regards to what is happening in Egypt, the truth about the conditions that preceded the coup and its expected outcome, as follows.

أولاً: إن ما وقع في مصر من عزل الرئيس المنتخب من قبل وزير الدفاع هو انقلاب مكتمل الأركان. وهذا عمل محرّم مجرّم، نرفضه باعتباره خروجاً صريحاً على حاكم شرعي منتخب، وتجاوزاً واضحاً لإرادة الشعب، ونؤكد بطلان كل ماترتب عليه من إجراءات. ونسجل اعتراضنا ودهشتنا من مسلك بعض الدول التي بادرت بالاعتراف بالانقلاب، مع أنه ضد إرادة الشعب المصري، وخروج على حاكم شرعي منتخب، وهذا من التعاون على الإثم والعدوان المنهي عنه شرعاً، وسيكون لهذا الموقف آثار سلبية خطيرة على الجميع لو دخلت مصر - لا قدّر الله - في فوضى واحتراب داخلي.

  1. Deposing of the elected president by the minister of defence is an all-out coup. This is an action that is outlawed and criminal. We reject it, as it is a rebellion against a legitimate elected ruler and a clear transgression against the will of the people. We emphatically declare that all subsequent proceedings are null and void.
    We register our protest and astonishment at the behavior of some governments that were quick to recognize the coup despite its being contrary to the will of the people and a rebellion against an elected legitimate ruler. This is an act of aiding sin and transgression, which is forbidden in the Shariah. It will have serious negative consequences on everyone if Egypt—God forbid—were to descend into anarchy and civil war.
    ثانياً: ثبت باستقراء الأحداث والتصريحات والمواقف الإقليمية والدولية أن هذا الانقلاب قد وقع بالتواطؤ بين أطراف إقليمية ودولية، وأنه تم الإعداد له من اللحظة التي تم فيها انتخاب الدكتور محمد مرسي رئيساً لمصر.

  2. It is proven by looking at all the happenings, statements, and attitudes of regional and international players that this coup occurred with connivance between regional and international parties. And preparations for the coup had been in place from the moment Dr. Muhammad Morsi was elected the president of Egypt.
    ثالثاً: لم يعد خافيا على أحد أن إفشالَ حكومة مرسي كان عملاً متعمداً وممنهجاً عن طريق إثارة القلاقل وتعطيل عجلة الإنتاج، وتحكم رموز الدولة العميقة بالخدمات الأساسية كالكهرباء والمحروقات والدقيق بهدف إثارة الرأي العام ضده وضد حكومته .

  3. It is no longer a secret for anyone that the failure of the government of Morsi was deliberately and systematically engineered by way of stirring unrest, suspension of the wheels of production, and highhanded control of the elites of the deep state over basic services such as electricity, fuel, and flour with the goal of turning public opinion against him and against hisgovernment.
    رابعاً: حقيقة الأمر أن الانقلاب لم يكن انقلاباً تصحيحياً ولكنه انقلاب لإقصاء التيارات الإسلامية والوطنية، ومنع الاستقلال الحقيقي لقرار مصر وسيادتها. يؤكد ذلك أن قادة الجيش والشخصيات السياسية والأحزاب المصنوعة لهذا الهدف - كجبهة الإنقاذ وحركة تمرد ، وهم الجناح المدني للانقلاب - مقربون من الدوائر الغربية ومن الأقباط، ومن أعداء الإسلام بصفة عامة .

  4. The reality of the matter is this coup was not a coup for reform but a coup meant to oust the Islamic and national movements and to prevent true independence and sovereignty for Egypt.
    خامساً: نستنكر وندين ما أقدم عليه الجيش والأمن من أعمال عنف وقتل مروع، عن عمد وترصد لمئات المتظاهرين السلميين في الصلاة وفي الميادين؛ لمجرد التظاهر ضد الانقلاب!. مع أن واجب الجيش والأمن حمايتهم وتحقيق أمنهم . ألم يطرق أسماعهم قول الحق: "وَمَنْ يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِنًا مُتَعَمِّدًا فَجَزَاؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِدًا فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَابًا عَظِيمًا" وقول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "لزوال الدنيا أهون على الله عز وجل من سفك دم مسلم بغير حق" .

  5. We deplore and condemn the acts of horrific violence and murder carried out deliberately by the army and security forces against hundreds of Muslim demonstrators during salah and in the public squares merely because they demonstrated against the coup-despite the fact that the job of the army and security forces was to defend them and to ensure their safety. Have they never come across this verse? "Whoever kills a believer deliberately, his recompense is Jahannam in which he will dwell forever and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and prepared for him a great punishment."
    And the statement of the Messenger of Allah, "The loss of the entire world is lighter in the sight of Allah than the unjust shedding of the blood of one Muslim."
    سادساً: نؤكد للجميع أن عزل الرئيس مرسي وإفشال حكومته تحت شعار منع أخونة الدولة هو ذريعة وتعلق بقشة باهتة، والحق أنها أسقطت لأنها ذات توجه إسلامي وطني. إننا في موقفنا الرافض للانقلاب وما ترتب عليه لا ندافع عن الإخوان المسلمين، بل ندافع عن الحق، ونقف مع المظلوم ومع حقوق الشعب المصري المعتدى عليها. ولن نكون يوماً واقفين مع جماعة أو أفراد لذاتهم، لكن إذا كانوا أو غيرهم في خندق الحق الذي ندين الله به فسنقف معهم، ولن ندع الدفاع عن الحق لأنهم كانوا في جهته .

  6. We reiterate for everybody that deposing of President Morsi and the bringing down of his government under the pretext of stopping the betrayal of the nation amounts to clutching at straws. The fact is that his government was overthrown because it was oriented Islamically and nationally.
    In our stance of rejection of the coup and its aftermath, we are not defending the Muslim Brotherhood but rather seek to defend the truth and stand with the oppressed and with the rights of the Egyptian masses that have been transgressed against. We will never stand for one day with a party or individuals for their own sake, but if they are in the trenches on the side of the truth, we will stand with them and we will never forsake defending the truth just because they happen to be on its side.
    سابعاً: ولهذا نستنكر موقف بعض الأحزاب والجهات والشخصيات الداعمة لهذا الانقلاب، ونقول: إن شريعتنا ترفض الخروج على الحاكم الشرعي، وترى نصحه والاحتساب عليه بالوسائل المشروعة؛ وإن من عقيدتنا الوفاء بالعهد والعقد ولو على أثرة علينا. ونطالبهم أن يراجعوا مواقفهم ويتبرؤوا من الانقلابيين ومن الأحلاف المشبوهة، ويرفعوا عنهم غطاء الشرعية وأن يدينوا كافة أعمال العنف والقتل وأن ينسبوها لفاعليها حقيقة، وأن يتصالحوا مع محيطهم الإسلامي الذي أيدهم. كما نقدر مواقف العلماء الذين انحازوا للحق ووقفوا معه .

  7. Thus we deplore the stance of some parties and movements and individuals that are supporting this coup. We say: Our Shariah rejects rebellion against a legitimate ruler and rather calls for advising him and holding him responsible through legal means. Our faith requires us to fulfill our contracts and pledges even if they be against us.
    We thus call upon them (the parties supporting the coup) to revoke their stance and to disassociate themselves from the coup makers, to remove the cloak of legitimacy from them, to condemn all actions of violence and aggression, to attribute them (these actions) to their true perpetrators, and to reconcile with their Islamic milieu, which is their mainstay. Similarly, we applaud the stance of the scholars that have sided with the truth and stood by it.
    ثامناً: لقد أثبت الغرب كعادته أنه مع الاستبداد والعنف إذا كان ضد الشعوب المسلمة؛ سواء كانت تواجه حرب إبادة كما في سوريا، أو انقلاباً ومصادرة للحقوق كما في مصر. ونؤكد للغرب أن الشعوب قد عرفت اللعبة، وسوف يدفع الغرب ثمن عبثه بالقيم والمبادئ. إن الغرب بمعاييره المزدوجة يدفع المنطقة للفوضى ويؤسس لثقافة العنف !

  8. As is its habit, the West has proven again that it will side with tyranny and violence against the Muslim masses whether it be in the form of a war of annihilation as in Syria or a coup and confiscation of rights as in Egypt. We declare to the West that the people have understood its games and soon it will have to pay the price of violating values and principles. The West, with its double standards, is driving the region into anarchy and establishing a culture of violence.
    تاسعاً: يتعين على أطراف النزاع أن يتقوا الله، وأن يقدموا ما توجبه الشريعة من رعاية المصالح التي مبناها على حفظ الضرورات الخمس، ويتجردوا من حساباتهم الشخصية والحزبية، وأن يتوافقوا عاجلاً على إقامة العدل ووقف نزيف الدم وانقسام الشعب. وعلى عقلاء مصر أن يخرجوا عن الصمت والتردد إلى حمل الفرقاء على محكمات المصالح ومكتسبات الشعب المصري، وأن يكون الاحتكام إلى الحوار في علاج المشكلات، وإلى الصناديق في حسم النزاع . وفي هذا المقام نشيد بموقف جبهة علماء الأزهر وغيرهم من علماء مصر، الذين جهروا بالحق ورفضوا الانقلاب، ونذكّر كافة العلماء والدعاة والمثقفين وأهل الرأي بضرورة الوقوف الحازم ضد الانقلاب .

  9. We commend the stance of the Ulama of al-Azhar and other ulama from Egypt who have openly spoken the truth and rejected the coup. And we remind all the scholars, activists, and intellectuals of the necessity of taking a firm stand against the coup.
    عاشراً: ندعو العالم كله ووسائل الإعلام أن يتقوا الله في مصر وأهلها، وأن ينحازوا للحق، ويراجعوا مواقفهم، خاصة بعدما سفك الانقلابيون الدم الحرام، وقسّموا الشعب وابتغوا الفتنة بالدعوة للنزول ليواجه الشعب بعضه بعضاً. إن السكوت على جرائم العسكر خيانة لهم، وإن تأييدهم خيانة للأمة ولتطلعات الشعوب في الحرية والكرامة. إن لنصرهم وجهاً واحداً فقط، هو منعهم من الظلم وحجزهم عنه .

  10. We call upon the entire world and media that they fear Allah with regards to Egypt and its people and to side with the truth and to recant their positions, especially after the coup-mongers have shed sacred blood, divided the people, and sought to spread mischief by inciting the people to fight each other.
    To remain silent in the face of the crimes of the military is (in reality) betraying them and to support them is betrayal of the ummah and the aspirations of the people to freedom and dignity. There is only one way to help them—that is to prevent them from oppression.
    حادي عشر: نؤكد دعمنا لكل المطالبين بعودة الرئيس المنتخب الدكتور محمد مرسي وندعوهم للثبات والاحتساب، فهم على حق، ومطالبهم مشروعة، ونناشدهم ضبط النفس، وقطع الطريق على مريدي الفتنة، الذين سيجعلون منها ذرائع لمزيد من القتل. والله نسأل أن يتقبل من قضى منهم ويشفي جرحاهم، وينزل على ذويهم الصبر والسلوان، ويرزقهم الاحتساب .

  11. We emphasize our support for everyone who calls for the restoration of the elected President Dr. Muhammad Morsi. We call upon them to stand firm and hope for reward from Allah, for they are on the truth and their demand is legitimate. We also implore them to restrain themselves and to block off the paths of those who seek mischief and will create means for further killings.
    We supplicate to Allah to accept those that passed away from amongst them, to heal their wounded, to bestow upon their families patience and consolation, and grant them hope of reward (from Him).
    ثاني عشر: نذكر أنفسنا وأهلنا في مصر وغيرها أن مايجري هو بقدر الله تعالى وهو فصل من فصول المدافعة بين الحق والباطل؛ بين العلمانية والإسلام، بين السيادة والتبعية. فاحسموا أمركم وقفوا ضد الانقلاب الذي بدأ بتعطيل مؤسساتكم الدستورية ثم بقتل المصلين. وهاهم يُلوحون بقانون الطوارئ وإعادة بناء المؤسسات الأمنية ، وتغيير الهوية ..وهذا ما يبشر به الانقلابيون فاحذروهم "وَلاَ تَهِنُوا وَلاَ تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ" بإيمانكم واصبروا "وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِين" واجهروا بالمطالبة بالاحتكام إلى الشرع المطهر وتحكيمه، ففيه الحرية والعدل وهو أحسن الدساتير "وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حُكْمًا لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ ". ووالله لئن تحقق للانقلابيين ما يريدون لَتَبْكُنّ على أيام المخلوع حسني مبارك .

  12. We remind ourselves and our brethren in Egypt and elsewhere that whatever is happening is occurring with the decree of Allah; it is but a chapter from the annals of conflict between truth and falsehood, between secularism and Islam, between leadership and subjugation. Gird yourselves and stand firm in opposing the coup that began with the suspension of your constitutional institutions and followed with the massacres of people in prayer....
    وأخيراً فإن علينا أن نكون شجعاناً في رؤية عيوبنا التي لا نشك أنها كانت نقاط ضعف نفذ منها العدو..وفي مقدمتها تفرّق كلمتنا، والتعصب للحزب والجماعة. ونوصي أهلنا في مصر بتقوى الله والاعتصام بحبله المتين، والتمسك بصراطه المستقيم، قال تعالى: "وَأَنَّ هَـذَا صِرَاطِي مُسْتَقِيماً فَاتَّبِعُوهُ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ السُّبُلَ فَتَفَرَّقَ بِكُمْ عَن سَبِيلِهِ ذَلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ" اللهم احفظ على مصر أمنها وإيمانها ، واجمع كلمة أهلها على الحق .. واكفهم شر أعدائهم في الداخل والخارج. آمين ..
Finally, we must be brave enough to see our own shortcomings that undoubtedly have been the weak points that the enemy took advantage of, foremost amongst them being our own inner division and party politics.

We advise our brethren in Egypt to be conscious of Allah and to hold fast to His strong rope and to stand firm on the straight path.... Allah says: "And verily this my straight path, so follow it, and do not follow the (other) ways, lest they separate you from His way. That is what He has enjoined upon you so that you may be God-fearing."

O Allah protect Egypt, its peace, security and faith; unite its people on the truth; and protect them from their enemies—whether they be internal or external. Ameen.

Reports of massive chemical attack near Damascus as UN observers arrive in Syria

August 21, 2013 "Information Clearing House - "RT" -Conflicting reports emerged of recent chemical weapons use in Syria. This comes on the same day that the UN inspectors arrive in Damascus to investigate allegations of use of toxic arms. The casualty figures range from dozens to almost 1,200 deaths.

Syrian authorities issued a statement saying there is " no truth whatsoever" to reports of chemical weapons use near Damascus.

The incident reportedly took place in Ghouta, on the green agricultural belt territory surrounding the Syrian capital.
The Ghouta region on the outskirts of Damascus is known for its opposition inclinations and has been the site of past clashes between government forces and the rebels.

"Jabhat al-Nusra has had a long-time presence there and the region has borne the brunt of sustained military pressure for months now," Charles Lister, an analyst at IHS Jane's Terrorism and Insurgency Center, told Reuters, referring to a hardline Sunni Islamist rebel group allied to al-Qaeda.
The European Union has called for a "thorough and immediate" investigation of an alleged chemical attack in Syria.
"We have seen with grave concern the reports of the possible use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime. Such accusations should be immediately and thoroughly investigated," said EU foreign policy spokesman, Catherine Ashton.
"The EU reiterates that any use of chemical weapons, by any side in Syria, would be totally unacceptable."

The news emerged on the day UN inspectors arrive in Damascus to examine suspected cases of chemical weapons use in the war-torn country.

Among those who also voiced their concern are the Arab league spokesman and UK foreign secretary William Hague.

Videos of attack aftermath emerge

Several videos showing alleged victims of the attack emerged online. The footage shows people lying on the ground, moaning and shouting, with some of them unconscious. One of the videos shows a man shivering violently while lying on the ground, as though he has a fever. Another piece of footage shows a grief-stricken father whose daughters were apparently killed in the attack.

Some fo
Sana said there had been strikes in the villages of Jouber, Erbin and Zamalka in Damascus Countryside.

Weeks ago, the United Nations pointed out that an agreement had been reached with Assad's government as to the three locations that UN inspectors would be examining, with the mission led by Swedish scientist, Ake Sellstrom.

The UN received some 13 reports of alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria and the UN inspectors will be investigating the "allegations" of chemical weapons use, rather than determining who was behind the attacks.

A letter to "liberals" about the Saudi King: He does not represent Islam

If the Ikhwan demand the application of the Islamic system of life in practice, what is harm in it? Is it not the demand of every believer on earth. If not, then he is not a Muslim. His Iman is in doubt. He then comes from the so-called class of liberals that are loitering in the cozy atmosphere of the West or hiding their faces in the posh localities of Muslim community.

So, please forget this advocacy and try to understand the Islamic Movement of Hasan Al- Banna Saheed, Syed Qutub Shaheed and that of Sister Zainab Ghazali Merhoomah.

If the self seeker king Abdullah of SA calls the Ikhwan as "terrorist", he doesn't represent Islam and the Muslim Ummah at all. He is the agent of the secular West and that of Uncle Sam. He has lost all the credibility to be called as the "Custodian of Harmain Sharifain'. It is a great insult to the sanctity of these paramount sacred Institutions of Islam. The culprit must be punished.

He is misusing the God-given petro dollars by helping the tyrant military regime of Egypt in billions. He has no 'right" to do that. He is a coward and will soon face the wrath of Allah, if he dose not repent fast and beg pardon from Allah and the Muslim Ummah as he has committed a great crime to both. If he remains adamant, Muslim Ummah must curse him day in and day out and the Ulama must decide soon as to wether Hajj and Umrah will be accepted by our Lord under his custodianship who is squandering away the oil wealth and his influence for his nefarious designs.

Hope you now understand the gravity of the situation and will not allow yourself to play in the hands of your liberal friends.The charges of atrocities against Christian brothers are false and let Br Mike give documentary evidence in his support that it was done by Ikhwan and none else. Ikhwan couldn't do it.
