Ayah of the Week

"If it had been the will of your Lord that all the people of the world should be believers, all the people of the earth would have believed! Would you then compel mankind against their will to believe?"

The Holy Quran, 10:99

Deception and the Big Lie Techniques being used Against Islam and Muslims
by New Trend Contributors and Media Monitors

Muslims hear conspiracy theories but are so impressed by the media that they do not try to rebut them or even analyze them. Non-Muslims are busy trying to undermine Muslim unity via these strongly opinionated propagandists but we don't even try to talk back.

Here are some stories which have been repeated so often that they have become part of Muslim thinking. Unbelievers like Cartalucci, Chedovsky, Fisk, Lamb, Hannity, Wolf Blitzer, Charlie Rose, and a whole list of slick talkers on National Public Radio [NPR] bring these up and provide no evidence:
  1. Jihad in Afghanistan against the Soviets was a CIA operation.

    Not true. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan and the Muslims fought back. War never takes place in a vacuum. The USA helped the Muslims. But was the USA thinking and fighting and sacrificing? Absolutely not! If the Afghans did not have the desire to resist, weaponry and money would not have helped]

  2. Hamas was "created" by Israel.

    Not true. Hamas does not lack the ability to organize, mobilize and fight back. Survival against a terrorist entity, Israel, backed by a superpower, USA, requires tremendous initiative and creativity. These are not people who be "created" by anyone.

  3. Saddam was a US puppet and USA attacked Iraq to get its oil.
    This "oil" story is most popular with anti-Islam propagandists. Saddam wanted to sell oil at any price. The US would not let him sell oil at any price. So the opposite of the "oil" story is true. The real cause of the Iraq war was Israel's non-acceptance of any Arab state which was not controlled by the US. Notice the blatant contradiction. If Saddam was a puppet, why would the US have to attack its own puppet. Saddam had become Islamic. That was the last straw for Israel and the US.

  4. Osama bin Laden and Taliban were terrorists and following 9.11 the USA was justified in attacking Afghanistan.

    [Not true. Osama bin Laden is not traceable to any message before 9.11 planning or supporting the attacks. The 19 'mujahideen' carried out a totally autonomous operation with complete radio silence and the highest level of discipline. If Osama met any of them or praised them after the attacks, does not mean that he was the organizer or "mastermind" of the attacks.

    None of the 19 were Afghans. Mullah Umar had called on the US to bring any evidence against al-Qaida and the case could be taken to an impartial legal authority. The US refused to bring any evidence.

  5. ISIS was "created" by the US and Israel.

    This story, supported by Shi'ite/Iranian media went quite far but collapsed when ISIS defeated the US installed al-Maliki regime in Baghdad and then USA started bombing ISIS. Understandably, USA will attack any efforts to set up a Caliphate. This was made clear by both Bush and Obama administrations much before ISIS came to the fore.

    If B1 bombers cannot "eradicate" ISIS, perhaps reason will replace insanity in America. There is no denying the fact that Islam is ascendant and bombing by the most powerful air force in the world will not be able to defeat Islam because the Qur'an itself has promised victory.

Pro-Iran propagandists insult human intelligence by claimimg that corrupt governments can "create" Islamic fighters. These people cannot see mujahideen as the most important anti-Israel, anti-imperialist force today. My favorite is this moronic statement from an "oil expert" named Egdahl:

"That refusal combined with the Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline agreement in 2011 ignited the full-scale Saudi and Qatari assault on Assad's power, financing al Qaeda terrorists, recruits of Jihadist fanatics willing to kill Alawite and Shi'ite "infidels" for $100 a month and a Kalishnikov. The Washington neo-conservative warhawks in and around the Obama White House, along with their allies in the right-wing Netanyahu government, were cheering from the bleachers as Syria went up in flames after spring 2011."

Thus the Syrian tyrant is absolved of his mass murders and crimes against humanity, the dignity of the Syrian people's resistance is shredded and the sacrifices of the mujahideen as trivialized to the level of "$100 and a Kalashnikov." [USA after 3 years has not provided any weapons to the mujahideen in Syria while Russia and Iran have a daily supply line to Assad. ]

Islam and Mohurram

 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Islam and Mohurram: Hussain, r.a., Belongs to Islam, not to a Sect
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

After the martyrdom of Usman, r.a., the second greatest tragedy in the history of Islam was the martyrdom of Hussain, r.a., the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, on the tenth of Mohurram in the year 61 of the hijra,

Although surrounded by the forces of the Governor of Kufa, Ubaidullah ibn Ziyad, Hussain ibn Ali, r.a., refused to swear allegiance to the tyrant. Heavily outnumbered, Hussain, r.a., went down fighting and was slaughtered along with his 72 male companions.

The killings at a place called Kerbala, in the parched desert, shocked the Muslim ummah and led to revulsion and various uprisings which resulted in the revenge killings of the men who had participated in the massacre of Kerbala.

The memory of Hussain was taken over by a group now known as Shi'ias. They re-wrote the history of Hussain's brave stand at Kerbala and used it to attack Islam and to undermine all the achievements of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, The convoluted process of Shi'iasm developed as a sect and then morphed into a full blown religion which contradicts Islam at every step. Among the Shi'ites there have been reformers like Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah al-Khui who tried to bring Shi'ism closer to Islam and even to integrate it back into Islam. The efforts have failed. [Sects are prohibited in the Qur'an]

In looking at the original documented sources of the issues relating to Shi'ism, I have studied Tarikh al-Umam wa al-Muluk by Abi Ja'afar Muhammad bin Jarir Tabari translated into Urdu by Syed Haider Ali Tabatabai.

Tabari flourished in an era when the power of the Ummayads who had persecuted Hussain did not exist. Tabari died in the year 310 hijri, about 250 years after the martyrdom of Hussain. His history is recognized as a classic and gives us the most detailed account of the tragedy enacted at Karbala.

Here are the facts:
  1. The Shias of Kufa sent petitions signed by thousands of people urging Hussain, r.a., to come to Kufa [now in Iraq] so that they could give him their oath of allegiance.

  2. Hussain sent his brother's son Muslim bin Aqueel to Kufa to investigate the promises of support.

  3. In the meantime, the Governor of Kufa, Ubaidullah ibn Ziyad appointed by Yazeed, the new Caliph, had found out the conspiracy to give the caliphate to Hussain, r.a. He suppressed public opinion by threats and the use of money. By the time Muslim reached Kufa, the support for Hussain had fizzled. Muslim was surrounded by supporters of the regime who handed him over to the Governor who had him executed.

  4. During this time, Hussain had left Makka on his journey to Kufa anticipating support and a big welcome. On the way, he learned that not only Muslim bin Aqueel's mission had failed but that he had been captured and executed as a rebel..

  5. Hussain, r.a.,,wanted to go back. In fact his relatives and various Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, had advised him not to undertake the journey at all. However, the relatives of Muslim who were with him insisted that not only the journey should continue but that the murderers of Muslim should be brought to justice.

    Also inherent in his move forward was the view that no one worth the name of Muslim would attack the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh.

  6. As Hussain and his group approached Kerbala, Ibn Ziyad sent out his troops and found that Hussain's force was very small. He decided to humiliate and destroy the dignity and status of the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, which he thought would enhance his dictatorial rule in Kufa.

  7. The forces Ibn Ziyad sent out to crush Hussain, r.a., had commanders who were very reluctant to harm someone so beloved of the Prophet, pbuh. One of them, Hur, actually joined Hussain and gave his life defending him. The next commander, Umar ibn Sa'ad kept putting off the decision to attack Hussain, but finally did it. [Many ignorant Shias confuse Umar bin Sa'ad with the great Caliph Umar, r.a., and show great hostility to Umar, r.a.]

  8. Other commanders of Ibn Ziyad were eager to attack Hussain to consolidate their power and Ibn Ziyad's power. The foremost of these evil men was Shimr ibn Jaushan. Also among the attacking army were some of the Shias who had invited Hussain and had assured him of their loyalty.

  9. Hussain did not want any blood to be shed. He told Ibn Ziyad's commanders that they should give him one of three choices: Let him return to Makka, let him go to the frontier to take part in Jihad, or let him go to the Caliph Yazeed to give him his allegiance. However, Ibn Ziyad, under strong influence by Shimr, was determined to humiliate Hussain, r.a., and force him to give his allegiance to himself [Ibn Ziyad] or to kill him.

  10. Hussain refused to bow down and fought to the last even as one by one all his adult male fighters were killed. He was martyred and his head was cut off, along with the heads of all 72, and sent to Ibn Ziyad, who paraded them along with the women in Hussain's entourage before sending the heads and the women to the Caliph in Damascus.

    Most modern scholars of including some Shias agree with the narrative given in these 10 points. However after that they diverge.

  11. There is no evidence at all that the Caliph Yazeed killed Hussain, r.a.

  12. There is no evidence at all that Yazeed ordered the killing of Hussain, r.a., In fact Tabari's documentation shows that Yazeed and his entire court was highly disturbed to know that Hussain and his group had been killed.

    1. Yazeed ordered the best treatment of Zain al-Abedin, the surviving male, and the women of the Hussaini group. All their goods, looted by Ibn Ziyad's tribe [according to tribal custom] were returned to the family on Yazeed's orders. Zain al-Abedeen and the families were then sent to Madina under trusted escort [so they be not harassed on the way] and with many gifts.

    2. In later years Zain al-Abedin gave baya [oath of allegiance to Yazeed].

  13. Shias made it a habit of abusing and cursing Yazeed, blaming him for the killings. They also started fabricating stories about his bad character. [I do not accept him because he was not a Sunnah oriented ruler, but there are numerous records which show that Yazeed was a man of excellent personal character. Imam Ghazali as well as other reliable scholars have rejected the stories of Yazeed's bad character, drinking and womanizing, etc.]

  14. The Shias then extended their abuse to Muawiyya, r.a., because he was the father of Yazeed. Again the Shiite absurdity is clear because Muawiyya, r.a. was trusted by the Prophet, r.a., and even entrusted with the holy task of writing down the revealed verses of the Qur'an. Hasan, r.a., the elder brother of Hussain, r.a.,gave baya [oath of allegiance] to Muawiyya, r.a. Muawiyya gave generous gifts and stipends to both Hasan, r.a and Hussain, r.a.

  15. After that the Shias abused the great second Caliph of Islam, Umar r.a., because he had appointed Muawiyya, r.a., as the governor of Syria.

  16. Then the Shias started abusing Abu Bakr, r.a., the closest friend of the Prophet, pbuh, and the first great Caliph of Islam. Why? because he was the friend of Umar, r.a. and did not give Fatima, r.a., the garden of Fadak.

  17. These hostile Shia attitudes led them to the claim that the Qur'an which Muslims have, compiled by the Caliph Usman, r,.a., beloved son in law of the Prophet, pbuh, had been changed by Usman, r.a. and that the "real" Qur'an was with Ali, r.a., and will be brought by their Mahdi at the end of time..

  18. Serious abuse has also been directed at the greatest Islamic military commander Khalid, r.a. because he outclassed Ali, r.a., and at Abu Huraira, r.a., because he recorded the most "sunni" hadith and at Ayesha, r.a., because she opposed the Caliphate of Ali, r.a.

In sum, Shias have made a religion of their own and their abusive attitudes have led to warfare between the Shias and Islamic mujahideen groups.

All these Shia attacks are ongoing and often led by Ismailis, supporters of the Agha Khan.

Forgotten in all this sectarianism is Imam Hussain, r.a., who never taught all this whining and loud mourning which the Shias carry out every year. Hussain, r.a., stood for truth and justice. We should be proud of the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, and hail his stand against tyranny and family rule.

Spotlights and Guidance

 Imam Badi Ali

Imam Badi's Spotlight: "The Many Faces of Evil and the Many Ways of Love".
  1. The US is no longer able to provide adequate resources to its people. Yet it continues to carry out war against various nations.

  2. Muslims globally have the right to fight evil, be it tyrants, dictators or occupiers. Those who deny them this right are themselves evil.

  3. A dear brother gave me cologne and asked me to make du'a for him whenever I use it. Thus when you do good for someone, however minor, it's always with him like the cologne.

  4. Teach your son to say I love you to you, to his mom, to the whole world; for that to happen, you have to tell him: I love you.

  5. Do not return evil with evil.

  6. Evil has the ability to use the mask of good, a pleasant face, pretty on the outside like a poisoned candy.

  7. The spread of ignorance and moral falsehood are signs of evil.

  8. Slavery is a form of evil. Prejudice is a form of evil.Racism is a form of evil.

  9. Do not forget that evil hates the truth and preys on the innocent and the weak and the defenseless.

  10. One of the evil ways is to make good look bad and to make bad look good.

  11. Be Aware! Do not let terrorists fool you by labelling others as the label of terrorism.

Late Breaking News: Bombing claimed by Pak Taliban near Indo-Pak border

November 2, 2014: Sunday evening a huge bomb blast hit a Pakistani military check point near Wagah on the Pakistan-India border.

First reports indicate 55 killed, 70 wounded. Only a handful of the troops were killed but the blast destroyed nearby shops and killed civilians coming out of the shops.

Indications are that it was a human bomber but its not clear how he got through the strict security in place in the whole area.

Tehreeke Taliban e Pakistan [TTP] has taken responsibility with the comment that this was in response to the bombing and military operation in North Waziristan.

Pakistan announced last month that it has killed 1,000 people in North Waziristan which it described as ":suspected" Taliban, The entire population, about ONE MILLION, was pushed out of their homes in the heat of Ramadan and lay under the sky homeless in the months which followed.]

So this looks senseless but it may have been a revenge attack.

Sirajul Haq speaks in Loralai, Baluchistan: Education, Health Care, and Judicial System must be changed; NATO presence in Afghanistan is not Acceptable.

LAHORE, Oct. 30: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that the JI had made sincere efforts to resolve the political crisis and obstructed the martial law, and it was due its endeavour that the democratic system still prevailed in the country.

 Sirajul Haq in Loralai Baluchistan

Addressing a large public meeting at Loralaee, he said that Pakistan had been established for practicing the Islamic system of life, and the Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had repeatedly declared that the Holy Quran would be the constitution of Pakistan.

He said that immediately after the demise of the Quaid e Azam, bureaucracy and the feudal lords established their control over the country and shut down the doors of education, economy and state institutions to Islamic principles and teachings. All the past governments had been protecting the interests of the elite ignoring the downtrodden masses.

The JI chief said that the ruling elite and the bureaucracy did not want to change the prevailing educational, health care and judicial systems because their children did not study at government schools and colleges nor they visited the government hospitals for treatment. Had their children been getting education at government schools and colleges, and they been visiting government hospitals, the condition of these institutions would not have been so miserable, he added.

Referring to the Afghanistan situation, Sirajul Haq said that the presence of NATO forces was the root cause of problems and peace could no return to the region as long as NATO troops stayed there.

JI Balochistan chief Akhundzada Abdul Mateen, also addressed the gathering.

Top Pakistani General Coming to USA to get his Orders

Pakistan army's top commander General Raheel Sharif will be visiting top American military commanders in the US during a week long visit starting November 16.

General Sharif is known for his treachery against Islamic basis of Pakistan. According to the Daily Dawn, Sharif has turned the Pakistani army into a force against "terrorism" away from its original purpose as a defense against India. "Terrorism" is American term for Muslims who pick up arms to fight the US and its local collaborators.

Pakistan's Military Background - What was done to Swat, analyzed here, is now Happening in North Waziristan

Taliban: Poor People's Uprising
By Eric Margolis, 17th May 2009

PARIS -- Pakistan finally bowed to Washington's angry demands last week by unleashing its military against rebellious Pashtun tribesmen of North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) -- collectively mislabelled "Taliban" in the West. The Obama administration had threatened to stop $2 billion US annual cash payments to bankrupt Pakistan's political and military leadership and block $6.5 billion future aid, unless Islamabad sent its soldiers into Pakistan's turbulent NWFP along the Afghan frontier. The result was a bloodbath: Some 1,000 "terrorists" killed (read: mostly civilians) and 1.2 million people -- most of Swat's population -- made refugees. Pakistan's U.S.-rented armed forces have scored a brilliant victory against their own people. Too bad they don't do as well in wars against India. Blasting civilians, however, is much safer and more profitable. Unable to pacify Afghanistan's Pashtun tribes (a.k.a. Taliban), a deeply frustrated Washington has begun tearing Pakistan apart in an effort to end Pashtun resistance in both nations. CIA drone aircraft have so far killed over 700 Pakistani Pashtun. Only 6% were militants, according to Pakistan's media, the rest civilians. Pashtun, also improperly called Pathan, are the world's largest tribal people. Fifteen million live in Afghanistan, forming half its population. Twenty-six million live right across the border in Pakistan. Britain's imperialists divided Pashtun by an artificial border, the Durand Line (today's Afghan-Pakistan border). Pashtun reject it. Many Pashtun tribes agreed to join Pakistan in 1947, provided much of their homeland be autonomous and free of government troops. Pashtun Swat only joined Pakistan in 1969. As Pakistan's Pashtun increasingly aided Pashtun resistance in Afghanistan, U.S. drones began attacking them. Washington forced Islamabad to violate its own constitution by sending troops into Pashtun lands. The result was the current explosion of Pashtun anger. I have been to war with the Pashtun and have seen their legendary courage, strong sense of honour and determination. They are also hugely quarrelsome, feuding and prickly. One quickly learns never to threaten a Pashtun or give him ultimatums. These are the mountain warriors who defied the U.S. by refusing to hand over Osama bin Laden because he was a hero of the anti-Soviet war and their guest. The ancient code of "Pashtunwali" still guides them: Do not attack Pashtun, do not cheat them, do not cause them dishonour. To Pashtun, revenge is sacred. HAM-HANDED Now, Washington's ham-handed policies and last week's Swat atrocity threaten to ignite Pakistan's second worst nightmare after invasion by India: That its 26 million Pashtun will secede and join Afghanistan's Pashtun to form an independent Pashtun state, Pashtunistan. This would rend Pakistan asunder, probably provoke its restive Baluchi tribes to secede and tempt mighty India to intervene militarily, risking nuclear war with beleaguered Pakistan. The Pashtun of NWFP have no intention or capability of moving into Pakistan's other provinces, Punjab, Sindh and Baluchistan. They just want to be left alone. Alarms of a "Taliban takeover of Pakistan" are pure propaganda. Lowland Pakistanis repeatedly have rejected militant Islamic parties.

Many have little love for Pashtun, whom they regard as mountain wild men best avoided. Nor are Pakistan's well-guarded nukes a danger -- at least not yet. Alarms about Pakistan's nukes come from the same fabricators with hidden agendas who brought us Saddam Hussein's bogus weapons.

THE REAL DANGER The real danger is in the U.S. acting like an enraged mastodon, trampling Pakistan under foot, and forcing Islamabad's military to make war on its own people. Pakistan could end up like U.S.-occupied Iraq, split into three parts and helpless. If this continues, at some point patriotic Pakistani soldiers may rebel and shoot the corrupt generals and politicians on Washington's payroll. Equally ominous, a poor people's uprising spreading across Pakistan -- also mislabelled "Taliban" -- threatens a radical national rebellion reminiscent of India's Naxalite rebels. As in Iraq, profound ignorance and gung ho military arrogance drive U.S. Afghan policy. Obama's people have no understanding what they are getting into in "AfPak." I can tell them: An unholy mess we will long regret.

 Bengali Muslims

Why are Pious Bengali Muslims being cut down by pro-India Regime in Dhaka?
Death of Prof. Golam Azam in prison & Death Sentence for Motiur Rahman Nizami

by Dr.Kaukab Siddique

Jamaate Islami Bangladesh is led by pious, virtuous, politically aware but non-violent Muslims. They are not fighters and there is no fighting force to defend them. But they have set standards of morality and decency which have influenced large numbers of people in Bangldesh, particularly the educated sections of young people.

I used to correspond with Prof Ghulam Azam before the tragic events of 1971 which broke up East Pakistan and led to the emergence of Bangladesh. He was articulate and very rational in his letters to me. He was a great defender of Pakistan but when the country fell apart, he wanted the divisions within the country to subside through compassion and care for the masses.

Forty years after the tragic breakdown of Pakistan, the pro-India party in power in Dhaka decided to scapegoat the Islamic leadership of East Pakistan's Jamaat e Islami and to target them in such a way that the re.gime's treacherous relationship with India would be deflected.

How deep is the relationship with India? On Friday, October 31, 2014, the LIGHTS WENT OUT IN ALL OF BANGLADESH. Why? Because "the high voltage transmission line runs from Baharampur in West Bengal, India to Bheramara in Kushtia district in south west Bangladesh." [BBC November 1]
Thus Bangladesh's electricity is controlled by India. A glitch in the transmission line plunged the country into darkness.

India also controls the dams and the water system, flooding the country when water is not needed and stopping the water when it is most needed.

Within that context, the Dhaka regime has worked to cut Bangladesh's Islamic links with Pakistan by attacking and abusing Jamaate Islami. The Pakistani military defending East Pakistan surrendered to the Indian army in 1971. It's officers were accused of atrocities against Bengali civilians, particularly women. However, a tripartite agreement between India, Pakistan and newly formed Bangladesh removed any chance of Pakistani military being charged with atrocities.

In a great act of betrayal, Pakistan's military did not inform Jamaate Islami that it was going to surrender. All the Bengali Muslims who had fought for Pakistan were left at the mercy of the Hindu minority who swarmed to support the Bangladesh regime, and at the mercy of secularist and Communist Bengali Muslims.

After the killings of pro-Pakistanis died down, there was a period of relative peace during which I visited Bangladesh sevderal times. No one could think that after 40 years, Hasina Wajed, the daughter of Bangladesh's separatist leader, would attack Jamaate Islami.

Thus, through a series of show trials, we see top Islamic leaders, the most non-violent ones, in the regime's prisons and being sentenced to death or long prison terms one after the other. Among them was the top scholar and leader of the Islamic movement in Bengal, Prof. Golam Azam. There was no case against him but the regime kept him in jail till he died there in his 90s.

Now the other top leader of Jamaate Islami Bangladesh, Motiur Rahman Nizami has been sentenced to death. Absurd charges were brought against which, even if there had been any fact in them, could not be ascertained after 40 years. He too is a vety pious, scholarly, compassionate and aware Islamic leader who has never hurt anyone, let alone committing atrocities.

The Muslims of Bangladesh are quite helpless against the modernized armed forces constituted of Hindus, secularists and Communists.

Pakistan has turned its face away from those who loved Pakistan and are now paying the price.

The only voice which has arisen to challenge Bangladesh on the field of battle is that of Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri. Bangladesh is sowing the seeds of the Islamic whirlwind.

Pakistan: Retaliation for Pakistani Air Attacks

October 29: In the Spin Qamar area of Bara, Khyber , mujahideen fought a pitched battle with Pakistan's best troops. Pakistan has admitted "fierce fighting" and that 8 of its troops were killed. [AFP]

The military usually does not admit any losses. This admission indicates heavy losses. [Owing to its links with the US, Pakistani military has more than 100,000 troops occupying areas populated by people devoted to the Islamic cause, some of them supporting Pak Taliban and al-Qaida.]

October 23: In the Quetta area, a "militant" group known as Jundullah tried to kill Maulana Fazlur Rahman, a well known pro-government religious cleric. The explosion killed 5 of his supporters and destroyed several vehicles but he survived inside his bullet proof car. Earlier there was an attack on Shiites travelling in a bus, 9 of whom were killed. A veteran unit of the Pakistani military known as Frontier Corp went out to search for the attackers but was hit by a bomb explosion which killed 3 of the military and wounded 15.

On October 22, Pakistani jet fighters attacked villages in North Waziristan killing 25 "suspected" extremists. In the Data Khel area of North Waziristan, an army unit was hit by mujahideen with rocket fire. Two of the troops were reported killed and 5 injured. [Pakistani army had claimed that Datta Khel was captured three months back.]ctober 24: Near Al-Arish, northern Sinai, a martyrdom operator hit Egyptian dictator Sissi's troops gathered at a checkpoint. It was a direct hit: 31 of the troops were killed in the huge explosion and 28 injured. The same day, a hit and run attack killed 3 more Egyptian tropps in Al-Arish itself.

Iraq: In the area of Jurf al-Sakhar, 50 miles south of Baghdad, a martyrdom operator hit a check point manned by troops from the US-installed regime and Shi'ite militias. [From Associated Press 10/27/14]

The huge explosion killed 24 of the Shi'ite militia and wounded 25. This area was inhabited by Sunnis but the Shiits drove them out. This is the road to Kerbala, the holiest shrine of Shi'ism.

October 31: Tribal fighters supporting the US-installed regime who had been resisting IS west of Baghdad, finally broke and ran. As they swere fleeing, IS fighters gunned them down, treportedly killing 85. The regime is claiming that it was a massacre.

November 1: IS fighters are encircling the strategic Hadith dam. They are being bombed by the US but they move very spread put, forcing the US to attack one wagon or truck at a time.

Syria: IS [Islamic State] fighters have re-taken the Shaar gas field which a Syrian Assadi force had re-taken when IS withdrew after slaughtering Assad's troops. [from Associated Press]:

This time IS has issued a video showing 30 of Assad's forces killed and 5 of his tanks, 2 armored vehicles, several machine guns and piles of ammunition captured by Islamic forces.

Assad's forces facing serious losses as the war goes on.

As the Islamic counterattack came in over two years, the regime led by Assad and his Alawites have suffered tremendous losses. A report from AP indicates that the Assadi forces killed now number more than 40,400. From one city alone, the Alawite stronghold of Tartous, on the coast, more than 4,000 crack Alawite troops have been killed.

The Muslim world is now looking for victory as there is growing coordination between Al-Nusra and the Islamic State. [The Shi'ite-Alawite military of Assad has killed more than 200,000 people, mostly civilians, including thousands of women and children.]

Ferocious Bombing & Atrocity Stories are not stopping Global Islamic Support for IS

November 1.AFP has published a report from US sources that 16,000 Muslim volunteers from 80 countries have joined the Islamic State [IS]. The average is 1,000 volunteers coming every month and the graph is going up, not down, though all regimes are stopping Muslims from going to IS.
The largest number of volunteers are from the Arab countries and North Africa. Right at the top for the steady flow of Islamic volunteers is Tunisia.

Even more shocking is the fact that 2,000 volunteers have come from Europe, the biggest number from Russia.
From USA, the number is around 100. Under American pressure, groups like CAIR, ISNA and similar groups in Britain have declared that IS is not Islamic. Slanderous remarks have been directed at Khalifa Abu Bakr al_Baghdadi.

Almost EVERY DAY US media, many of them infested by Jews, spew out scary stories about IS, with almost no evidence. At least 16,000 people have not only rejected the abuse against IS but have borne

Kobane: FSA & Iraqi Peshmarga Reinforcements arrive in Kobane

Oct 30-31,2014 FSA has announced that 400 of its forces have entered Kobane to fight the Islamic State [IS[.

The advance units of Peshmarga Kurds have entered Kobane from the Turkish side of the border. Looks like Turkey buckled under US pressure and allowed heavily armed Kurds to go in.

Heavy US bombardment allowed FSA to come in from the West and Peshmarga from the north. However 40% of Kobame remains under Islamic control. FSA are anti-Assad secularist Syrians supported by the US. Turkey's plan was that FSA should fight the Islamic State.

Exciting Developments in Tsarnaev Case
"The government has no evidence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev actually participated in the Walham murders."

by Sis. Karin Friedemann [Boston]

On October 20, 2014, Tsarnaev's most recent status conference hearing took place. Seven demonstrators spoke to the flock of reporters reminding them about their legal obligation to promote the presumption of innocence.

"I haven't seen any actual evidence against [the Tsarnaev brothers]. I mean I've seen circumstantial evidence. Nothing that actually links them to [the bombings]," stated demonstrator Arina Montag.

Elena Teyer is the mother in law of Ibrahim Todashev, who was shot 7 times in his Florida home by Boston FBI in May of 2013. Elena drove for three days, sleeping in her car in order to be present at this demonstration. Her brave diligence was noted.

Associated Press' Denise Lavoie reported, "Elena Teyer held a placard with photos of son-in-law Ibragim Todashev. 'I am dead because I knew Tsarnaevs. I knew the truth,' the sign read in part."

"'We are all here for justice,' said Teyer, pointing to Ibrahim's autopsy photos, explaining what she believes to be holes and inconsistencies in law enforcement's account of Todashev's death," reported Morgan Rousseau in the Boston Metro.

"They came from Boston to kill my son-in-law. I know that for sure."

Elena mentioned to reporters the email between FBI agents after they killed her daughter's husband. It says, "Good work. A job well done." It did not say, "Well that turned uglier than we had planned." The email congratulated the FBI team for their success! This can only mean that they were sent from Boston to Orlando to murder the potential witness.

Meanwhile, inside the courthouse, defending attorneys complained of media leaks. In particular, a recent Newsweek article by Michelle McPhee, entitled "Twisted Sisters," painted a negatively biased picture of the Tsarnaev family. It was Islamophobic and contained a number of factual errors. McPhee's article states that she was tipped off by a high ranking law enforcement official. McPhee is also the source of other weird stories related to the Boston Marathon bombing like "the note in the boat."

This is very serious, because the TV version of events is extremely absent from the actual court proceedings but heavily weighs the jury's mindset against the defendant. Four days after the courthouse protest, on October 24, attorneys filed three very interesting documents: Tsarnaev's defense team filed their Third Motion for a Hearing to Address Leaks by Law Enforcement, and a Memorandum Regarding Scheduling, which addresses government intimidation of witnesses. The government filed its opposition to Tsarnaev's Fourth Motion to Compel [Discovery].

Tsarnaev's motion to address leaks "requests that the Court hold a hearing, and direct government counsel to produce the supervising law enforcement officers with access to information about this case including both federal and state supervising agents or officers - to testify about their instructions and efforts to investigate and stop unauthorized communications with news media."

The next illuminating document discusses government intimidation of witnesses. The defense argues that they are not legally obligated to disclose the names of Jahar's friends, as the government demands.

"Defense counsel have described the unusual and severe obstacles they have

encountered in their efforts to interview and secure testimony from potential witnesses who knew the defendant, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and other members of his family prior to April 15, 2013... A substantial part of these difficulties stems from the aggressive, persistent and pervasive law enforcement presence in the lives of many potential defense witnesses, and the atmosphere of fear and intimidation that has necessarily followed. This problem, and the consequent slowing of the pace of the defense mitigation investigation, was one of the reasons why defense counsel sought a continuance of the trial date to September 2015..."

"These same concerns make it impossible for the defense to voluntarily agree to disclose to the government the names of non-expert witnesses long before they are to be called. Given the virtual certainty that the FBI will descend on each of the non-expert witnesses to interview them (and in most cases, to re-interview them), the defendant has a well-founded concern that in the very unusual context of this case, defense witnesses whose identities are disclosed to the government prior to trial will quickly cease to be defense witnesses. For this reason, the defense does not agree to a witness disclosure requirement that is not mandated by statute or rule."

In the government's response to defense requests for more information about Todashev's alleged confession regarding the triple homicide in 2011, in order to avoid having to hand over any evidence to the defense, US prosecutors now suddenly admit:

"The government has no evidence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev actually participated in the Walham murders."

J.M. Lawrence, who writes for Bloomberg and the Boston Globe, tweets: "If US 'has no evidence' Tamerlan murdered 3 in Waltham, was the Todashev 'confession' in FL false? Lots of unanswered questions."

The Todashev confession news leak also came from, surprise! McPhee. Government prosecutors mentioned Ibrahim's confession in an earlier court filing as fact. This is a common practice in shady politics: leak news report, then refer to news report in legal case. But if Todashev is now suddenly considered innocent, why did he write a blood-stained confession note?

1,000 potential jurors will be screened for Tsarnaev's trial, District Judge George O'Toole said at Monday's hearing. The process of picking the 12 jurors and six alternates who will hear the case against Tsarnaev is expected to begin on November 3, 2014.

The problem is not Netanyahu; it's the US and Israel's special relationship by Dr Daud Abdullah, Media Monitor; Oct 31,2014 (Selection by Sis. Aamira, Philadelphia)

Not for the first time the Obama administration and the Israeli government have been hanging out their dirty linen in public. On the face of it, the Americans are said to be livid with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu's illegal settlement expansion in Jerusalem. The problem, however, runs much deeper.

While the Israelis try to explain the crisis as simply bad chemistry between Netanyahu and Obama, at the heart of it is the 'special relationship' to which the Americans have irrevocably wedded themselves.

The fault-lines in this curious relationship are never far below the surface. They are a constant source of tension and embarrassment for the Americans because they cannot reconcile their international drum beat for human rights and democracy with bank-rolling Israel's subjugation of the Palestinian people.

So how did the world's dominant super-power find itself in this mess; where it blindly follows, often against its proclaimed laws and values, the whims of a client state that is unapologetically racist?

Last month, Israel's President Reuven Rivlin decried the increasing wave of racism and violence against Arab Israelis in the self-styled Jewish state. Addressing the Israeli Bar Association in occupied Jerusalem he said:

"We are fools to make such irresponsible statements or to remain silent about them. Hateful calls of 'Death to Arabs' were not spray-painted on neglected walls in the dead of night, but spoken loudly and clearly, in the light of day."

Surely the authors of the American constitution, and the patriots who died for its independence, would have regarded support for such indignities as a betrayal of all that they stood for.

Ever since Netanyahu announced his plan to construct an additional 1,060 housing units in Jerusalem, relations with Washington have gone from bad to worse. It became all too apparent during Israel's Security Minister Moshe Ya'alon's recent visit to the US. Despite strenuous efforts, he was denied meetings with senior US officials.

In public, both sides have been at pains to limit the damage. While the Israelis claim that the real target of the snub was not Yaalon per se but Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Americans, on their part, were equally quick to plaster the sore.

On Wednesday, the Obama administration dutifully distanced itself from a media report that described Israel's prime minister in stridently 'undiplomatic' language. The report by the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg quoted an unnamed US official who described Netanyahu as "a chickenshit". Predictably, the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest made the public believe all is well. While admitting that differences currently exist, he asserted that relations with Israel are "as strong as ever". Short of making a full-blown apology, Earnest denied that the unnamed official's views were indicative of those of the administration.

As an individual, Netanyahu may have appeared spineless; he has on countless occasions pandered to the demands of the settlers in order to save his political career. However, on balance, it must be said that Israeli officials are never afraid to criticise and even rebuke US officials; whether they be Secretary of State or the President. On the other hand, it is the Americans who have demonstrated a penchant for ambiguity and making statements under the cover of anonymity.

Ultimately, Israel will be the loser from this current spat. Americans, it seems, are growing increasingly tired and fed up with the bizarre relationship in a case of the tail wagging the dog. It is one that is certainly not good for their image, and highly detrimental to their international interests. As it struggles to secure its share of global markets, investments and resources, America can ill-afford to be seen as being a purveyor of injustice. For fear of being seen as guilty by association European countries are today lining up to recognise the state of Palestine, in spite of US-Israeli opposition and rhetoric about the peace process.

Danny Ayalon, the Israeli diplomat and former deputy foreign minister admitted that the growing crisis in relations with Washington is threatening Israel's interests. He explained that: "There is no doubt that there is a very bad thing happening at the level of relations between Israel and the US... When the relations become really bad, they would certainly have significant repercussions, and could shake the American public opinion out of favour with Israel."

In due course, Benyamin Netanyahu will leave office, but America's problems with Israel will persist. That is because his successor will, almost inevitably, be even more extreme and derisive of international norms. No president after Obama, however sympathetic, would be able to convince the American people that they must prop-up a 21st century colonial enterprise. It runs contrary to their beliefs, their ethos and their history. Furthermore, with all that is happening in Syria and Iraq, the last thing Americans want is to become entangled in a religious war, the type of which Israel is dragging them towards. Israel's attempt to seize Al Aqsa Mosque, the third most sacred Muslim site, will lead to unimaginable consequences that would make Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria all look like a picnic in the park. An honest and dispassionate reappraisal of the special relationship may just prevent that from happening.

Oil, Ebola and Junk Science
by Sis. Aisha, New York

I was watching the NYC public access show: Community Cop sponsored by 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care. The host, Noel Leader, brought up an interesting point which was that no matter which conflicts are occurring in the World they NEVER seem to disrupt European imperialistic businesses. The U.S. Oil families are still in control of the world's oil and the price is going down. He said that the Jews still control the diamond and goldmines in Africa. He was stating how the Europeans are always able to sanitize the areas so that nothing interferes with their business.

The oil prices have hit an all time low. The claim is that the oil being used is from American soil.

Junk Science is something to be avoided at all cost. It is this "science" that fuels fears and serves the purposes of those "teaching it." I t is based on misinformation. Junk science teachers either benefit from making money or some political agenda. There IS an effort to create fear with these Ebola news reports. However, these fears are caused by contradictions stated by members of the World Health Organization (stay calm) and the Centers for Disease Control (panic). It does not help that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas did not enforce proper sanitary conditions for their medical workers. It also a travesty how Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York City Ebola case, outright lied about his whereabouts throughout New York.

These cases made it difficult for Nurse Kaci Hickox , the defiant nurse politicians were trying to force into quarantine for 21 days. She was perturbed with the public and politicians because no one knew the facts surrounding Ebola, who many health experts state can only be transferred when bodily fluids interact, just like AIDS. I believe that Dr. Spencer's case made it worse because he did not have the symptoms, at first, and then developed them a short time later.

Scientists, without agendas, deal in facts. There are scientists who want to educate the public about the facts regarding disease. However, they're efforts are counteracted by Junk Scientists and business scientists, such as pharmaceutical companies testifying before Congress to promote an agenda that will lead people to buy their pills or vaccines. Junk Science also fuels the organic food industry. The lobbyists, not honest scientists, have government's ear.

In college, I took a course called Science and Technology. It presented both sides to an argument, such as pesticide use on produce. There would two arguments: one for pesticide use and the other against it. The arguments were both based on science but, political and financial agendas were also exposed, as well. The more basic science one knows the better. It allays fears and prevents panic. For instance, touching blood on a surface is not hygienic but, it is not life threatening either. A nurse once explained to me that blood is rendered harmless once exposed to air for more than ten seconds. Medical experts have stated that allowing blood to flow from a wound and exposing it to air, as opposed to bandaging it, will help prevent tetanus.

Understanding the scientific facts and what a great piece of machinery Allah has created the human body to be will help combat panic surrounding a disease that has killed only one person in the entire history of the United States and that was due to poor, nonchalant medical treatment. I smell a lawsuit on behalf of Thomas Eric Duncan's family.

Sis. Hadayai, leading Islamic Woman, helps the homeless & the Needy both in USA & Africa.
Her daily Activity raises some Jealousy and Questions. Here are her Answers as found on the FAQ section of the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. website (the title of her Organization)

Q. Why do you raise money for children in Africa when so many children here are in need in the US?

A. We were approached three years ago by a fellow Muslim who was teaching in a one room Islamic school in Ghana. Most of the 50 children he was teaching at the time were orphans. Although the poor village where the school is located (not near the business centers of the country) agreed to keep the children when there was a shortage of food of cou...rse the villagers feed their own children first. Since it cost so little to help make sure the children can eat, send a few school supplies, etc. we decided to make the commitment. It cost $100 US dollars to feed them all of them for two weeks, in shaa Allah. Please give $2.00-$3.00 per month to help feed poor, orphaned children, in shaa Allah.

Q. What does the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. actually do?

A. Our primary goal is to provide education to the community about domestic abuse and serve survivors of domestic abuse. Many women when they leave a violent home literally get dropped like smelly trash by family, neighbors,,friends and even religious communities. Due to people just don't understand what survivors have been through even the ones who have been physically beaten, raped, financially deprived, etc.

Q. Why do you ask for money so much?

A. It takes money to help people put a roof over their head until they can find a way to start helping themselves (anywhere from 3 mos to a year). Most of the people who come to us get assistance for 3-6 months on some level, in shaa Allah. Many just need a quick hand up and they can move on from there, in shaa Allah.

Q. Do you write for grants?

A. Yes we do. However this is not a strong skill we have as an organization. We need money to hire a grant writer. It takes skill, time and connections. We do get some small grants from a couple of private family trust and some money from Verizon Wireless.

Q. How can I help?

A. Please follow my post, go to the Event Page on FB or inbox me, in shaa Allah. There is a lot of ways you can assist. Like today I need someone to attend an event at our office due to I am ill and can't go out. Inbox me if you can do this, in shaa Allah. I can brief you, etc. It will take about two hours of your time, in shaa Allah. My request to you. If my asking for money is a problem please unfriend me. I am on FB primarily for business purposes. I love that I have made good friends over the years by being on FB so much. However this is not my main place for socializing. I have good social contact in my community (Muslim and non-Muslim), my family and I get along well and my husband and I are great friends. Please do not let my posting upset you or annoy you. Just unfriend me. I will not take it personally. Really! I have unfriended people who have gotten upset with me for various reasons and I still love them. Really I do!

The US War of Ideological Cleansing
by Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal, Nov.1, 2014

The US joins al-Assad

The US-led imperialists now have entered the Syria soil and started a new killing mission to add up more massacres, more destruction and more blood bath along with the killer regime of President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian tyrant has already killed more than 200 thousands people over the last three years. Most of the victims are children, women and innocent civilians. His army has turned hundreds of cities and villages only to rubbles. The whole country is now a war-field, al-Assad's army is using barrel bombs, chemical bombs, missiles and heavy artillery shells to cause more killing and destruction. The devastating war has now entered into its 4th year. More than one-third of the population have been driven out of Syria. So far the USA and its partners did nothing to stop the ongoing genocide and destruction. They haven't thrown even a single stone at al-Assad's army to stop the brutality. Rather, what al-Assad's army have done to Homs, Hama, Aleppo and other Syrian cities, the USA is doing the same to Kobani. It is now using its warships, fighter jets, missiles and thousands of tons of bombs to bring more deaths and devastation. The US-led Western countries have diverted the whole focus of the war from defeating al-Assad's brutal army to destroying the Islamic State.

However, President Bashar al-Assad's brutality shows some visible difference from its US brand. The Syrian oil fields, gas fields and the oil refineries could still survive from al-Assad's bombing. These are the assets for the common good for all the Syrian people of all faiths, tribes and ethnicities. But such assets couldn't survive from the US savagery. Nor did al-Assad showed luxury of dropping tons of bombs on a barren mountain in Kobani only to burn a black flag with the name of Allah Subhana wa Taala and His prophet (peace be upon him) on it. Bashar al-Assad didn't consider it a strategic target. But it appeared like a military instillation in the eyes of the American warlords. So they dropped tons of bombs on it. The photo of the blown up hill and flag was shown worldwide by the Western media. This way they displayed their venom against the name of Allah Subhana wa Taala and His great prophet (peace be upon him).

However, it is not a new symptom of the American paranoia. Even before dropping bombs in Kobani, many mosques were bombed, scores of copies of the holy Qur'an were desecrated and many Islamic madrasas were burnt by the US occupying forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. The US has taken all brands of anti-Islamic parties, thugs and militias as the closest partners in war against Islam. In Afghanistan, the closest allies of the US are the man-slaughtering warlords of the Northern Alliance. In Iraq, they are the throat-slitting Shia militia. Now in Syria, they have forged strong partnership with the well-known Marxist-Leninist terrorists. Long before the war in Syria, Kurdish Marxist-Leninists YPJ party (People's Protection Units) in Syria and its sister organisation PKK (Kurdish Workers Party) in Turkey were known as the terrorist organisation in the US. In Kobani, the US has dropped huge cache of weapons and foods for the Marxist-Leninists to save them from eminent defeat.

For the US and its ally, the tyrant al-Assad and his brutality is not an issue. Saving men and women, protecting human rights or promoting democracy is not a concern either. The main issue is the destruction of the Islamic State and its strategic assets. Each Tomahawk missile costs 1.4 million dollar. Such a high precision missile is used only to destroy high-value enemy targets like naval warships, air force base, radar station or other strategic military installations. The Islamic State possesses none of such magnitude. But the US has other high-value targets in Islamic State. These are the cities, townships, villages and houses that breed resentment against the US-led barbarity in the Muslim World and produce combative jihadists. Hence, these stipulated targets are indiscriminately bombed. Till now (25/10/14), the US warships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea fired 47 Tomahawk missiles only on one city of Kobani -along with hundreds of air bombings. With the same paranoia, Israel dropped thousands of tons of bombs on Gaza in its recent war.

Monopoly of violence

The US-led coalition of the imperialists wants to monopolise every tool of violence. They consider it crucial for the global hegemony. They don't want others -especially the Islamists to possess even the minimal weapons for their self-defence. Under the colonial occupation, the natives of the occupied countries were not allowed to keep even a shotgun or sword for their own defence. They considered such minor tools threat to their colonial hegemony. But they possessed every weapon of mass destruction. The US-led imperialists want to keep such a status quo. They can invade and bomb any country they wish and kill as many people as they like. The US has invaded 7 countries in the 21st century, and killed millions of innocent men, women and children in those occupied lands.

In the imperialists' vocabulary, such invasions, bombings and killings are no crime. Nor do they call such acts as terrorism. They deny others the right of resistance against such invasion and killings. Hence, in the US-led camp, the occupation of Palestine and the ethnic cleansing of its native people is not a crime. But raising heads against the occupation and ethnic cleansing is terrorism. As if, full compliance with the enemy occupation is the only option for keeping up the survival. Gaza was bombed for more than 50 days to punish its people -only for the non-compliance with the imposed blockade. Now it is the turn of newly formed Islamic State. Kobani is the new Gaza. It is smaller than Gaza and the city is almost vacant. But still it had residential quarters, houses, shops, roads and a hill with a black flag with the name of Allah Subhana wa Taala and His prophet (peace be upon him) on it; therefore high-value strategic targets for the US bombing campaign. Till now (25/10/14), the US Air Force has bombed 550 times on this small city. Here in Kobani the US-led coalition made a history and a world record. No city of the size of Kobani was bombed so heavily in the whole human history, even not during the whole World War period. The bombing mission still continues.

The war of ideological cleansing

The US-led imperialists' war has a clear strategic objective. It is the ideological cleansing of the world -especially the Muslim world. They have defeated Soviet Union; and thus have cleansed the world from communism. Now the target is Islam with its Qur'anic model of shura, sharia, khilafa, jijiya, jihad, pan-Islamism and other socio-political policies. Hence, wherever there is a resurgence of Islam with such prophetic model of rule, an imposed war by the West is inevitable. The prophet of Islam couldn't avoid such a war from the contemporary kuffars; nor can do avoid the modern days' followers of the prophet. The kuffars of the modern days are no less intolerant and inimical against Islam than their ancestors. The present day enemies of Islam couldn't get any chance to fight wars against the great prophet of Islam, but they have the opportunity to fight war against his devout followers and his Islamic policies. And they don't want to miss that opportunity. Hence, the US is not concerned about the deaths and destruction in the cities of Homs, Hama, Aleppo and other Syrian cities, but worried about the fall Kobani under the Islamists.

The USA is the worst ideological state on earth. Its ideology is global imperialism twined with liberal capitalism and the culture of consumerism and pleasure-seeking hedonism. The US-led west is happy with the Islam of Saudi kings, Gulf sheikhs, Egyptian or Pakistani generals and other Muslim secularists. The imperialists are even happy to take them as partners in their war against Islam. But they consider the jihadi Islamists inspired by Qur'an as the greatest threat to their global hegemony. The US-led coalition wants to populate the global village with the people of single ideology, single economy and the single culture. Like pharaoh, Nimrod and other tyrants of the human history, they too are deadly against an ideological and cultural plurality. Even the Christian tyrant Constantine -the Byzantine Roman Emperor didn't believe in such pluralism either. He forcefully converted his almost every citizen to Christianity. So non-Christian in his empire was almost non-existent. The same happened after the Christian takeover of Spain from the Muslims. The religious, cultural and ethnic plurality that existed for about 7 hundred years' Muslim rule in Spain was stampeded by the Christian tyrants. The Western imperialists too want to take down the same route. They want others to melt down into their ideological cum cultural pot. This is why the French Parliament put a ban on wearing a head scarf; and hijab is banned in many European countries. In colonial era, to attain such an ideological and cultural hegemony, they carried out massive ethnic cleansing in America, Australia, New Zealand and many other parts of the world. Only this way, the British, the French and the Spanish people could make space for their own people and expand their empires in the newly discovered lands. But such ethnic cleansing in thickly populated modern world is unachievable. Therefore, they have taken down the route of ideological cleansing. Hence, they are support the secularist tyrants' killing mission against Islamists in the Muslim countries. This is why, they gleefully welcomed General Sisi's military coup against the elected Islamist President Dr Morsi in Egypt. For the same reason, they welcomed the coup against the winning Islamists in Algeria. As the part of the same strategy, they are also forcing the governments of the Muslim countries on restricting Qur'anic teachings in schools and imposing ban on books on jihad and other basics of Islam. For winning the ideological war against Islam, the US-led coalition thinks it crucial.

The ideological colonies

After the colonial occupation, establishing ideological cum cultural colonies in the newly occupied land received the highest priority. For that, along with ethnic cleansing, the ideological cleansing through wholesale ideological conversion of the native people was considered the most popular tool in the imperialists' camps. The political policies, meticulous social engineering and the education system worked as powerful tools to meet that end. The imperialists failed to produce significant number of religious converts from the Muslims; but got huge number of ideological converts. The ideological cleansing was so huge that Islam with its pure Qur'anic vision of khilafa, sharia, shura, jihad, pan-Islamic brotherhood and politico-social policies couldn't survive in those occupied Muslim lands. Islam could survive only as a code of some prayer rituals and non-political sufi dogmas. Such a policy of cultural and ideological conversion through education was revealed by T.B Macaulay, a well-known British imperialist and educational interventionist for India in his speech in British parliament on 2nd February 1835. He stated, "We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect" Even now, the British imperialists must be rejoicing the monumental success of such an educational policy in India. The project was so much successful that the products of the educational factories not only serve as the interpreters -as Mr Macaulay wished but also shed their blood for the British Empire. Even man like Mr Gandhi recruited soldiers for the British Army for the First World War.

The colonial occupation has formally ended; but the damaging legacy of the colonial rule still survives. The ideological cum cultural colonies of the imperialists still flourish in former colonies. The educational industries too, that were established to produce the ideological converts still function, rather with more massive production lines to feed the same objectives. The bureaucratic quarters, the army cantonments and the judicial enclaves in all big cities of the Muslim countries are indeed the ideological islands of the imperialists. These ideological converts living in those islands showed their ideological and cultural incompatibilities with the traditional Islamists of their own country. Nor could they reconcile with the political aspirations of the Muslim majority. As a result, each Muslim country has been divided into a country of two nations: the nation of Islamists and the nation of non-Islamic converts. As a result, unending ideological war has erupted in almost all Muslim lands that turned into blood-letting civil war in many countries.

The greatest terrorist

The Western imperialists fight wars, occupy lands and shed bloods -not only for political dominance and economic exploitation, but also for ideological and cultural hegemony. Whatever ideology stands against them becomes a war target. Before the collapse of Soviet Union, the target was communism. Now it is Islam. For the cause of its global hegemony, the USA doesn't respect the national boundary of any other country. It does not bother to take any permission from the UN to invade a country either. Rather the UN needs to endorse each and every US invasions for its own survival. Both physically and politically, the UN itself stands helpless hostage on the US soil. Therefore, like its previous invasion, the current bombing campaign in Syria also gets the full UN endorsement and support. Even Mr Ban Ki-moon -the UN Secretary General openly campaigned in support of such an US war mission. If use of violence for any political, ideological or financial purpose is terrorism, then who can be the greatest terrorist on earth than the US? For political arm-twisting, so far, who has used more weapons of mass destruction than the US? The US and its partners exercise the military and economic might to redraw the political map of others -as done in the Middle East, but don't allow others to decide their own future -even through democratic means. So it engineered coup against the democratic Prime Minister Sharif Musaddeq of Iran in 1953, against Allende of Chile in 1973, against the Islamists of Algeria in 1991 and against President Morsi of Egypt in 2013.

The snake changes only its skin; but never retires from the biting habit. Nor does it stop the production of poisonous venom -the lethal weapon. The same is true with the imperialists. So massacre of more than 70 million people in two World Wars couldn't quench the thirst of these imperialists for more killings. So they repeatedly went on the same killing mission even after the most catastrophic two World Wars. The people of Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq have already tasted their barbarity. In Vietnam, Napalm bombs were dropped even on forests -on the pretext of destroying the safe havens of the native fighters. As a result, huge plant and animal habitation had to taste the US barbarity. Thousands of children, women and unarmed civilians were scorched to death with fire bombs. Now it is the turn of the Syrian people to taste the same cruelty. In Syria, innocent men, women and children are not the only targets; equally innocent fields, hills, mountains, forests, roads and highways also seem to be the strategic targets.

What Israel did in Gaza, the US is doing the same in its own Gaza -the Islamic State; rather with more ferocity. Israel didn't use Tomahawk missile against civilian population. But the US is repeatedly using it. Its bomber planes are now carpet bombing the cities and villages of the Islamic State. Unlike Israel, the US is not alone in its killing mission. It has many equally brutal partners. The British and the French have already joined the bombing campaign; and more than 60 countries have also expressed their wish to support the campaign. Some bombers from the neighbouring Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Arab Emirates have also joined the mission. The ongoing US bombing campaign in Kobani has indeed fully diverted the direction of the whole war efforts in Syria. It is no more a war against the genocidal al-Assad. Now it is against the Islamic State.

The war of ideas

The US and its partners want to cleanse the world of ideas that are against their own world view and political ambition. But idea doesn't live in army cantonment or residential areas; it grows only in people's heart and mind. Hence in ideological war, bombing on military installations or residences doesn't work. Rather such bombing enhances only its bumper growth. The US war in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria gives a strong testimony to it. After the US bombings and killings in those countries, the Islamists got many fold increase; not only in those countries, rather globally. Such a rapid growth of Islamists also happened after the Soviet bombing in Afghanistan. To add its own disgrace, the US has taken the same route. So, thousands of bombs and missiles are now being dropped on Syria's residential areas to kill more civilians. The Israeli Army did that in Gaza too. The US Army has been doing the same in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan for more than a decade. The Islamic State has no cantonment, no naval ship and no visible military installation. But it has many people with combative Islamic ideas, hence turn potential target for US bombings. The war of ideas thus turns more genocidal. But Israeli bombings couldn't finish Hamas in Gaza. The US bombing in Afghanistan couldn't finish Taleban in Afghanistan either. Can they end the Islamists in Syria?

No peaceful option

The Islamists have never been given a peaceful option. The history repeatedly reveals that truth. The Muslims once became the number one World Power and the most dominant civilisation force on earth. For that, they had to advance every inch by sacrificing their life. More than 70% of the companions had to die for the cause. In every segment of history and in every land, the evil forces always used the extreme form of violence against the Divine truth. Even the greatest sons of mankind, like Hazrat Ibrahim (blessing of Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him), Hazrat Musa (blessing of Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him), Hazrat Isa (blessing of Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him) and Muhammad (peace be upon him) were not given a peaceful option either. They had to suffer the most barbaric persecution. Prophet Ibrahim (blessing of Allah SWT be on him) was thrown into fire. Hazrat Musa (blessing of Allah SWT be on him) has been chased by Pharaoh and his army onto the sea. Hazrat Isa (blessing of Allah SWT be on him) was put on the cross. The last prophet of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala Muhammad (peace be upon him) also suffered the severest persecution; the tribal leaders of Makka made a final plan to kill him.

The old enemies of Islam have died; but a coalition of new enemies has emerged with the same venom against Islam and the Islamists. Hence the same war still continues. Only the names and brands of weapons have changed, but not the aim and enmity. The US President Obama, the British Prime Minister Cameron and the French President Hollande have joined the same rank to launch a full scale war against the Islamists. Their war is not only against Islamic State or Islamic Khilafa, but also against the Islamists all-over the world. They are not ready to reconcile with the political, cultural and ideological objectives of Islam. Whoever wants the full practice of Islam -as was practised by the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his great companions with full implementation of sharia, shura, khalifa, jihad and other Islamic fundamentals are labelled terrorist; hence considered enemy.

Terrorism with a different meaning

No part of the world is so much infested with brutal tyrants as is the case of Middle East. The Saudi tyrants can behead or imprison as number of people as they like. There exists no accountability. The Egyptian courts too can hang as many people as they wish. Even one day is enough for an Egyptian judge to prosecute hundreds of people in a room and declare their death sentences. The Egyptian army can also kill thousands of innocent people in a single night -as they killed in Raba al-Adabiya in Cairo in August 2013. There need not answer anyone for such crimes. Such massive terrorising acts of these tyrants never receive any label of terrorism by the US-led imperialists. Rather they display great love for them. They consider them the strategic partners to sustain their dominance over oil-reach Middle East. Their help is also needed for ensuring Israel's long term security. These US-led imperialists are not only complacent with their brutalities, but also take every step to ensure their full protection. For that, the US and its partners not only keep ever-presence of their warships, but also have established large number of military bases in the Middle East.

The US President Barak Hussein Obama, in his speech in the UN on 24th September, labelled the Islamic State a "nexus of barbarity". The question: what about his own barbarity? The US drones, missiles and fighter jets are killing children, women and unarmed civilians in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and many other countries of the world. Israeli Army killed 2130 people in its recent 50 days' war in Gaza and destroyed more than twenty thousand houses and hundreds of schools. What was the US action? Wasn't it a crime to adopt a policy of inaction against such Israeli genocide? It appears from the speeches of the Western leaders, as if no killing took place before the creation of Islamic khilafa! How many civilians are killed by the Islamic State fighters? How many civilians are evicted by them? How many houses have been destroyed by the Islamists? After beheading of one British citizen, the British Prime Minister Cameron called Baghdadi "terrorist khalifa". What about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who killed more than two thousands in Gaza? What about George W Bush and Tony Blair? Are they not responsible for about one million civilian deaths and huge destruction because of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq? Why "terrorist Netanyahu" and "terrorist Bush" do not get any mention in Mr Cameron's speech?

In speeches of US-led imperialists, as well as in the vocabulary of the tyrant kings, sultans, sheikhs and generals, terrorism has a different meaning. The war for ending occupation, the struggle for removing tyrant killers and the fight for basic human rights have always been labelled as terrorist acts by the tyrants and the imperialist occupiers. Hence Mr Gandhi of India, Mr Nelson Mandela of South Africa and many others of the Third World countries had to go to the prisons for protesting against the colonial occupation. For the same reason, al-Assad of Syria, the Saudi Kings, the military coup leaders of Egypt and the Sheiks of the Gulf countries called his opponents as terrorist. Any effort towards implementing sharia is labelled as terrorism, too. Since the mission is the same, the US-led imperialists are quite happy to take these proven killers as the partners in their killing mission against the Islamists.

The intolerance

The US President Barak Hussein Obama, the UK Prime Minister David Cameron and many other Western leaders didn't hide their own thoughts vis-à-vis Islamic khilafa. They have already declared that they are not ready to tolerate Islamic khilafa in any part of the world. Mr Obama has made a pledge that the US will "contain, degrade and destroy" Islamic State. Mr Cameron called Islamic state a "terrorist caliphate". He also claimed that inaction against Islamic State's barbarism can't be a policy. With an implied support for the US-led war, the Roman Catholic Pope too urged that something must be done to protect the Christian minorities and Yazeedis from the Islamists. Mr Obama, Mr Cameron, and the Catholic Pope never pleaded for such a war against the genocidal regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria or other killer regimes of the Middle East. Neither did they say such words against the Israeli atrocities in Gaza.

The US-led imperialists have their own reasons for virulent and violent opposition against an Islamic state. They are not ignorant of historical implication and connotation of khilafa. Khilafa doesn't come alone. It also brings pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood, sharia, jihad, Islamic education, Islamic social policies and a global vision of liberation of the people from yoke of evil forces. It works as a hub of Muslim unity and inspires Muslims to emergence as a unified global power. Such an Islamic state brings an end not only to enemy hegemony but also to non-Islamic values, culture, laws and judiciary in Muslim lands. The Western imperialist are not ready to accept such a colossal end of their own ideology. Moreover, they are not ready to give such a dignified space for the Muslims either. Hence, they are now desperate to crush Islam as the political ideology and dismantle Islamic State in its nascent form.

The war against Allah Subhana Wa Taala

The imperialist's war is not only against the Muslims or the Islamists. It is also against Allah Subhana wa Taala. Establishing Islamic state or caliphate following the prophet's tradition is a Divine obligation. If this obligation is not fulfilled, many other obligations can't be practised either. About 70-80% of Allah's command can only be practised if Muslims could live in an Islamic state. Fish can survive only in water; Muslims too needs a fully Islamic state to live with full Islam. He can't properly punish even a killer or a criminal in a non-Islamic state. Islamic state or caliphate brings other blessings too. It is the quick way of adding strength to the Muslim Ummah. In the first 13 years of the Islam in Makka, the greatest prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam with his unprecedented knowledge, character and dawa skills -supported by many miracles, couldn't convert even 3 hundred people. But in the following 20 years under the Islamic caliphate, Muslims emerged as the number one world power. Islamic caliphate worked as the most powerful civilizational force on earth. The Muslims can't win a war, neither can do any moral or politico-cultural reconstruction, nor can do any effective dawa works without the institutional support of the Islamic khalifa. In fact, the failures of the world's 1.3 billion squarely lie on the absence of Islamic khalifa. Hence, mosques, madrasas, political parties, charity organisations and sufi khanqas were never considered as the substitute of khelafa. Khelaf's substitute is khilafa itself.

Allah Subhana Wa Taala has a clear announcement for those who do not follow His sharia in making judicial judgement. He called them kafir, jalem and fasik -(Sura Ma'ida, Verse 44 -47). Therefore, noncompliance with sharia takes away a man's Muslim identity; and dumps him with a tag of non-Muslimness. Can any amount of salah (prayer), fasting, haj or charity cover up such a kufr of noncompliance? Compliance with sharia is indeed the key marker of muslimness of a believer. Any form of noncompliance with sharia is kufr -therefore route to the hellfire. Therefore, a true believer can never take a non-sharia path. But how can sharia be practised without an Islamic State? No one can take the sharia law in his own hand, it needs state apparatus. Hence Islamic State is an indispensable necessity. The prophet of Islam needed it. The companions of the prophet and the later Muslims needed it, too. But none of the current 57 Muslim countries claim to be the follower of prophetic method of governance; neither do they practice sharia in making judicial judgment. The so-called Muslim states have indeed made it very difficult to live like a full Muslim. The kuffar enemies of Islam want to keep such status quo.

So, the need for a full sharia-compliant Islamic state is most urgent and most crucial. Any further delay will only expedite Muslims' peril and earn more curses from Allah Subhana Wa Taala. Establishment of such an Islamic state is indeed the first step towards breaking the status quo of failures. It is also a big step towards becoming full Muslim for the believers. The Muslims can survive without further economic or scientific progress, but can't wish to pass a single day without a desire and commitment for an Islamic state. But all the evil forces of the world want to deprive the Muslims from fulfilling such a crucial religious need with their full military might. The whole conceptual framework for an aggressive war against the nascent Islamic State is indeed based on such a devilish ploy.
