Russia vs Ukraine & the West
What does Islam say?

By Dr. Kaukab Siddique

In the ongoing invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the major media are carrying on one-sided coverage 24/7.

The medley of publicity makes the gleaning of the correct situation difficult.

Here are the factual aspects:

  1. Russia led by Putin fears the assimilation of Ukraine into NATO and considers the Ukrainian leadership totally alienated from Russia.

  2. The Russian military saw a quick victory in Ukraine and was taken aback by Ukrainian resistance.

  3. The Ukrainian leader, Zelenski, is the top supporter of Israel and himself a hard core Zionist Jew. NATO cannot see him collapsing and humiliated.

  4. All of Europe and USA and Canada have come out in total support of Ukraine's leader.

  5. NATO cannot take the risk of military conflict with Russia , so it has taken the next possible

    1. Sanctions
    2. Massive funding of Ukraine's forces.
    3. Lethal weaponry on a large scale, particularly from Germany, which gives Germany the opportunity to rebuild its military.

  6. Russia's tactics are a larger duplication of what it was doing in Syria:
    1. Long range artillery and missile attacks.
    2. Terrorizing the population into frantic flight
    3. Sending tanks into areas and towns which have been softened up

The Qur'an has promised victory to the Muslims . Chapter 30 of the Qur'an proclaims that the conflict of Christians and pagans will lead to the victory of Islam after the two sides have pummeled each other.

Some ancillary issues have come up. Ukraine has complained that a Russian bomb hit the site of a ravine known as Babi Yar where the Germans allegedly killed 33,000 people during the holocaust. German scholar and researcher Germar Rudolf has totally negated the Babi Yar allegations as part of his 600 page book on the holocaust.

Also, Ukraine claimed that Russia bombed a nuclear power plant which could have been a major disaster for all of Europe. After much to and fro, CNN admitted that the nuclear station had not been hit: it is safe and radiation has not leaked.

Chechen Muslim fighters are doing the heavy fighting against Zelenski's pro-Israel forces.

One benefit for Muslims could be that if the war continues, Russia might have to withdraw from Syria.

Racism in Ukraine [With thanks to Sis. Kristi, Br Ali Randall & others.]

Black immigrants have reported experiencing racism and being stopped from fleeing to safety as Russia continues its assault against Ukraine.

More than 1,000,000 refugees have fled from Ukraine into neighboring countries since Russian invaded its neighbor last week.

But African students trapped in the country have taken to social media to document the hurdles and hostility they have faced while trying to flee, raising awareness for their plight using the hashtag #AfricansInUkraine on Twitter.

Goats for Widows :
The goats give birth to one or two goats every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money. The idea came to me when on a tour of these areas I was told by a man that he started with 2 goats 10 years back now has 25 goats and has already sold out 12 male goats during this time to meet his other expenses.

Each goat gives 2 or 3 kids every year and the new born start producing after two years. Thus rearing of goats is very economical and profitable where there is abundant free fodder like in jungles.

Rozgar Scheme through Goats.

  1. In first phase 655 widows were given one goat each

  2. In second phase we gave 4 goats to 82 families in Thar Desert areas and three goats to 12 families in KPK.

  3. 27 families were given 2 goats each in next phase.

  4. In 29 more families were given 2 goats with 2 child goats in Thar Desert areas during 2020

  5. 25 more widows were given one goat plus a child goat in North in 2020.

For a few tense days this January, a roughly 70-meter asteroid became the riskiest observed in over a decade. Despite the Moon's attempt to scupper observations, the asteroid is now known to be entirely safe.

Initial observations of an asteroid dubbed '2022 AE1' showed a potential Earth impact on July 4, 2023 - not enough time to attempt deflection and large enough to do real damage to a local area should it strike.

Worryingly, the chance of impact appeared to increase based on the first seven days of observations, followed by a dramatic week 'in the dark' as the full Moon outshone the potential impactor, ruling out further observations. As the Moon moved aside, the skies dimmed and ESA's Near-Earth Object Coordination Centre (NEOCC) took another look, only to find the chance of impact was dramatically falling.

It has since been confirmed that 2022 AE1 will not impact Earth and has been removed from ESA's risk list. So, what's the story

 Remember Prisoners

Abu Zubayda was Tortured 83 times but ......

The United States Supreme Court has ruled that two former CIA contractors cannot be questioned in a criminal investigation in Poland over their role in interrogating Abu Zubaydah, a suspected high-ranking al-Qaeda figure who was repeatedly subjected to waterboarding.

The justices on Thursday ruled 6-3 that Central Intelligence Agency contractors James Elmer Mitchell and John Bruce Jessen cannot be subpoenaed under a US law that lets federal courts enforce a request for testimony or other evidence for a foreign legal proceeding.

The court found that the government could assert what is called the "state-secrets privilege" to prevent the contractors from being questioned because it would jeopardize national security.

Poland is believed to be the location of a "black site" where the CIA used harsh interrogation techniques against Zubaydah. Zubaydah, now 50, has spent more than 15 years at the US jail at Guantanamo Bay. He lost an eye and underwent waterboarding 83 times in a single month while held by the CIA, US government documents showed.

We Stand with Uighur Muslims
[Ref Human Rights Watch]

A leading Human Rights Watch (HRW) officer for China has today branded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) "absurd" after the organisation's spokesman Mark Adams failed to challenge Beijing 2022 official Yan Jiarong when she spoke out about the "One China Policy" and insisted that reports of crimes against the Uyghur and other Turkic communities were "lies".

Yan had insisted at the daily press briefing between Beijing 2022 and the IOC yesterday that the Chinese Government "were opposed to the politicisation of the Olympics".
"The IOC comes out looking absurd pathetic and denialist," HRW China director Sophie Richardson said.
"Yesterday's press conference told us everything we needed to know,"

HRW condemned the IOC and corporate sponsors for not speaking out about the Chinese Government's human rights record or using their influence to ask for improvements.
"Through their silence, the IOC and its corporate partners have been complicit in Beijing's efforts to 'sportswash' human rights violations before a global audience," the HRW said.
IOC President Thomas Bach claimed today they had dealt with the issue.

"This problem we did not ignore," he said.
"We were immediately in touch with Beijing 2022 after this press conference.

"We restated our commitment to remain political neutral under the Olympic Charter."


Israel Attacks Gaza Fishermen
[Courtesy The New Arab]

Israel's naval forces on Sunday opened fire on the Gazan fishermen who were sailing off the coast of Rafah, in the south of the besieged coastal enclave, Palestinian sources have said.

Israeli navy fired live bullets and water cannons towards Palestinian fishermen, preventing them from fishing and forcing them to return to the shore, sources told The New Arab.

Zakaria Baker, an official from the fishers' committees in the Union of Agricultural Work Committees in the Gaza Strip, told The New Arab that Israeli forces continue to provoke Palestinian fishermen by ongoing attacks.
"Everyday, the fishermen have to deal with a challenge while in the sea. Israeli forces used to arrest them, damage their boats and shoot at them," he said.
These measures hindered the work of fishermen and prevented them from fishing freely to provide for their families.

From time to time, Israeli forces stationed in the eastern fence of the coastal enclave open fires towards the Palestinian farmers to prevent them from reaching their lands.
