Servants of Muhammad, pbuh, vs the servants of USA: JI's Bottom Line Emerging.
by Ameer al-Azeem & Qaiser Sharif [3 items]

LAHORE, Dec. 22; Ameer, Jamaat e islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has asked ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who should be held responsible for the lack of justice, medical and educational facilities and employment in the country for the last three decades during which he ( Nawaz) had been in power. He was addressing a big public meeting at Gujranwala Friday afternoon.

"The ousted Prime Minister is crying of having been denied justice and is talking of launching a movement against the judiciary. I ask him who should be blamed for the lack of justice and inadequate facilities of education, health and employment although he had been in power for the last three years', Sirajul Haq said.

The JI chief said that the PPP had failed, the days of the Muslim League were also over and the sun of a glorious Islamic revolution would rise very soon.

He said those who had wasted seventy precious year s of the nation were the real culprits and the nation fully knew them. He said that the Udyala jail was the next abode of these criminals and time had come when every penny of the public money would be recovered from these plunderers.

Sirajul Haq said that his war was not against the political pundits in the country as they were the slaves of the international establishment. His war was against the patrons of these pundits who were giving away dollars only to obstruct the Islamic system, he said He was confident that the masses would give full respect to those striving for the Islamic way of life.

The JI chief said that the Holy Prophet's love warranted that all the religious parties and the politician having a clean record should join hands. He said that the differences among the religious parties only benefitted the secular and liberal elements.

Sirajul Haq said that as long as the religious parties had their differences, the liberals were taunting and questioning how could the parties fighting among themselves enforce an Islamic system. But now when the religious parties had joined hands, the liberals were asking what had made them to unite.

"Time will soon come when the Ghulaman e Mustafa would be on one side and the Gulaman e American would be on the other side, and the masses would reject the US a gents and support those striving for the supremacy of Deen" he declared .

Sirajul Haq said the JI was the only democratic party in the country which had elected the son of a lay man and a kisan from a backward area as its Ameer. He urged the people to shake the hold of the oppressive feudal lords, capitalists and the status quo forces and support the JI.

JI Punjab chief Mian Maqsood Ahmed, in his address, urged the masses to change their voting trend and vote for the JI to get rid of the corrupt mafias.

JI's victory in Khyber by elections

Jamaate Islami Hails Resounding Defeat of Trump in UN General Assembly.
Large Prayer Gathering in Lahore.
Khutba by Hafiz Idrees.

LAHORE, Dec. 22; Deputy chief of the Jamaat e Islami, Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, has said that US President Trump's stubbornness on Jerusalem issue despite his humiliating defeat n the UN General Assembly was the worst example of arrogance and pride and it seemed the Trump was unaware of the fate of the Britain and Soviet Union.

Addressing a big Friday congregation at Mansoora, he said that the Baitul Madis was the first Qibla of the Muslims and they were prepared for every sacrifice for its liberation.

Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said that the civilized world would have to adopt a joint line of action against the US and the UN would have to implement its revolutions on Kashmir, Palestine and Burma. He said if the US and Israel did not alter their evil ways, the UN would lose its utility.

He impressed upon the Muslims rulers to give up their slavish attitude and pick up courage to see eye to eye with the US. He said the solution of the Palestine and Kashmir issues was essential for world peace.

Heavy Fighting Continues across Syria. What is the purpose of the Continuing Battles?

New Trend's Analysis of the Syria Situation.

Western media are portraying the conflict in two different ways. One angle is that it is a civil war in which Syrians are fighting each other, pro-and anti-Assad. The second viewpoint is that it is Shia versus Sunni. Both are incorrect but have impacted the Muslim world to such an extent that Muslim countries do not consider it "their" conflict. It is a tactical disaster for the forces fighting Assad because no country is helping them [other than Turkey which stopped helping after 3 years].

The uprising began as a movement for democracy and justice against the tyranny of Assad. The result was a blood bath during which Assad's forces slaughtered hundreds of unarmed protestors and demonstrators. Social media spread the message from city to city and the entire country was united against Assad. His merciless behavior led to defections from his army.

As the news of massacres by Assad's forces spread globally, volunteers from Muslim countries started flowing into Syria. The largest number came from Tunisia but the ones from Saudi Arabia were presented by Assad's media as "evidence" that Saudi Arabia was "behind" the uprising.

The people who have the ability to use weapons are the ones who fought against the West in Afghanistan and Iraq. These are strict Muslims known as al-Qaida.

Assad has come near to his end three times but each time was saved by foreign forces:

  1. Saved by so-called Hizbullah of Lebanon, with Iranian funding. It did not work.

  2. Saved by Iranian supplies of weaponry on a weekly basis and then Iranian "revolutionary" guards. The Iranians floated the idea that mujahideen are "takfeeris" and should be fought because they consider Shias as non-Muslims.

  3. As the Iranian help did not work either, Russia joined Assad's forces, carrying out brutal bombing campaigns and then sending in Russian Special Forces.

In the meantime, as Assad lost control of most of Syria, the vacuum was filled by the establishment of the Islamic State [ISIS] with its capital in Raqqa. The ISIS advance into Iraq was spectacular as it easily defeated regime forces in Mosul and captured their entire America-supplied weaponry. The Caliphate, led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, indicated that it was not afraid of anyone on the planet earth. It saw the Shias as non-believers and even opposed al-Qaida. The extremism and boldness if ISIS drew the fear and anger the western powers. Volunteers joined ISIS from all over the world, including converts to Islam from western countries.

The attacks on Shias played into the hands of Iran and multiplied the enemies of the Caliphate to such an extent that it was outnumbered 100 to one though it remained formidable owing to its army of "martyrdom operators."

Any Islamic caliphate will have to fight Russia, Iran and the West. It will need the support of the Muslim world.
The objective of Iran, Russia, Israel and the western powers is to save Assad and have a reformed Assd regime.
