  • The Russian Plane Crash 

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Political Causeries (part 3)

    No sooner had the Russian plane crashed over Sinai, America and Britain hastened to issue a host of statements confirming that the crash was a "terrorist act". This was even before the investigation into the causes of the crash was completed. It also did not take long for ISIS to claim responsibility for the downing the Russian plane and corroborate the Anglo-American claims. This was despite the statement made by the Russian transport minister, Maxim Sokolov, to the Russian news agency Interfax in which he cast doubt on the ability of ISIS to undertake such an attack by saying: "The claim that terrorists were behind the downing of the Russian plane cannot be deemed accurate." Soon after this Britain announced the evacuation of her citizens from Egypt and Russia was compelled to follow suit since Vladimir Putin did not wish to be viewed as uncaring about Russian lives. Then the presidential office announced that flights to Egypt would not be resumed until the security arrangements at Egyptian airports were up to international standards and the guarantees were given by the officials concerned. This came after several European companies, especially British and German, had announced the suspension of their flights to Sharm al-Sheikh.

    Political Causeries (part 2)

    The Vienna meetings on the Syrian war ended on Friday 30 October 2015 by the signing of an agreement that included 9 points, which all the international and regional parties present agreed upon. The latest meeting included the US, Russia, Britain, China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in addition to the United Nations, represented by the its Envoy to Syria Staffan De Mistura. The key points agreed upon by the participants in Vienna can be listed as follows:

  • The Paris Attacks

    Political Causeries (part 1)

    French president François Hollande accused ISIS of being behind the spate of attacks even before the criminal investigation began saying: "What happened is an act of war perpetrated by Daesh on our soil with French complicity. The investigations should corroborate this." A few hours after François Hollande pointed the finger at Daesh, the group issued a communiqué claiming responsibility for the attacks under the title of "The Blessed Paris Raid". ISIS linked the attacks to France's participation in the military campaign against its positions in Syria and Iraq. It justified the attacks by stating: "Our attacks on Paris were but a response to France's campaign against our fighters and her insulting of the Messenger Mohammed" and ending by vowing to launch further attacks on France because it was "at the top of the list of our targets." World leaders and rulers were quick in condemning the attacks and expressing their solidarity with France and president François Hollande.

  • America Leads West in War of Extermination against Islam and Muslims 

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Dear Muslims, Salvage Yourselves
     
    America Leads West in War of Extermination against Islam and Muslims 
     
    Some Western institutions classify the Islamic World as the region that rejects integration. This means the region that rejects Western civilisation and its Capitalist concepts. This is why the Western powers, headed by America, have been waging the fiercest of crusades against Islam and the Muslims. We would not be exaggerating if we deemed this onslaught as unprecedented in history and with farther-reaching dimensions than the conventional crusades Europe used to instigate against the Islamic world.  This frenzied attack has been targeting Islam and the Islamic world. The concepts are either attacked or undermined while the Islamic world's faculties are being destroyed, its countries fragmented, its riches plundered and its youths corrupted and killed.
  • Reforms in Iraq 

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem
    Answer to Question
     
    Question: I would like to clarify the following points in  light of a political discussion I have recently attended:
     
    With regards to the issue of Iraq, the discussion centred around the Iraqi parliament and its accusations against  al-Maliki and 30 other figures for surrendering Nainawa , the reforms of al -Abadi, the sit-ins related to public services and the military battles against the ISIS organisation in al-Anbar as well as the preparations to recapture Mosul.  The prevalent opinion was that  al-Maliki’s tenure should take the blame for the status quo ante and that steps should be taken to shore up central government, to concur with the process of federalisation once the counsel of al-Sistani against fragmentation has been taken into account. Hence, the influence of al-Baghdadi's state is expected to dwindle to allow for the "Sunni" province to crop up, and which the Jordanian entity would endeavour to crystallise. Were the conclusions sound?  
  • Events Related to the Public Disorder in Lebanon 

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem
    Answers to Question
     
    Question: I would like to clarify the following points in  light of a political discussion I have recently attended:
     
    1- I had thought the prevalent opinion on what is occurring in Lebanon in terms of the protests against poor public services and against corruption under the theme of "You Stink", with the masses from various sects taking to the streets, was related to shaping the Lebanese state of affairs according to the second phase of al-Taif agreement. This relates to abolishing the sectarian apportionment of key posts in which all the sects have been engrossed to the point where the struggle over them has erupted within the one single sect; this explains why the post of President of the republic has remained vacant for the past 18 months. On the other hand, the protests in which the supporters of Hezbollah and the Free Patriotic Movement took part in droves are designed to divert the masses' attention in Lebanon away from Hezbollah's intervention in Syria. Hezbollah has sent a considerable number of its forces to conclude the fragmentation of Syria by attempting to seize al-Zabadani and Eastern al-Ghouta and merge them with the Alawite arc that stretches from the Alawite Mountains to Damascus and up to the central Beqaa area. Was the conclusion of the debate sound?
  • The Political and Military Fallouts of the Suruj Bomb Attack

    The Political and Military Fallouts of the Suruj Bomb Attack
     
    Turkey has finally succumbed to the pressure exerted on her by America to get involved in the American plan to beef up the Kurdish fighters in northern Syria at the expense of the other fighting factions. Ever since the  founding of the satanic alliance the US has been using the war on the ISIS organisation as one of the main pretexts to lure Turkey into the Syrian quagmire. But as Turkey had been dragging her feet in fighting the ISIS organisation, America has this time upped the ante. Turkey's reluctance and aversion to fighting the ISIS organisation was instigated by her fear of the Kurds surging power in Syria, especially now that the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has become the hands-on manager of the military operation and because of the self-rule areas the Kurds have gained control of in the wake of the Ain al-Arab and Tal Abyadh battle.  
  • The Dimensions of the Nuclear Agreement Between Iran and the Sexpartite Group

    The Dimensions of the Nuclear Agreement Between Iran and the Sexpartite Group
     
    Several vociferous statements of support, rejection and apprehension poured in  as an "historic" agreement was reached after 21-month marathon negotiations between Iran and the 5+1group on 14 July on the Iranian nuclear file, which had caused a great deal of diplomatic and political pandemonium, and threats of military action for 12 years.
     
    US president Barack Obama defended the agreement in a televised statement from the White House and described it as an "historic agreement" between Iran and the major powers because it has blocked all avenues in the face of Iran's possible acquisition of nuclear weapons and stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East  region. Obama pledged to veto any attempt by congress to block the agreement with Iran and confirmed that the nuclear deal paved the way for a new direction in the relationship with Teheran.
     
    As for Iranian president Rouhani, he attempted to market this agreement domestically as having achieved all the aims expected from the negotiations with the major powers, which include preserving and the nuclear technology and pursuing the nuclear programme within Iranian territories, in addition to lifting the bans and the sanctions, rescinding all the Security Council resolutions issued against Iran and removing the Iranian nuclear file out of Chapter 7. Rouhani deemed the agreement a new page in the history of the region, based on dialogue as a benchmark for defusing crises; he also mentioned that the agreement was fair and balanced with no win or loss for any of the stakeholders.
  • Dear Muslims of Jordan, Salvage Yourselves

    Dear Muslims of Jordan, Salvage Yourselves
     
    The Jordanian government is intending to establish a free trade zone with the Jewish entity as announced by Newspapers and websites that broke the story a couple of days ago with one of the headlines reading "Cabinet Divided Over Plans to Set-Up Free Trade Zone with Israel".
     
    Reactions to the story came thick and fast the following day with some business people and private sector industrialists expressing deep resentment and deeming the signing of a free trade zone agreement with "Israel" a "catastrophe". 
  • The Events of Syria, Al-Quds, Sinai, Yemen and Libya 

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem

    Political Causeries

    1- Syria:

    Extensive activity has been noted in southern Syria by the opposition forces who have recently taken over the region of al-Sheikh Meskin. This coincides with the intensifying of the battles in Kobani and the villages of al-Hasaka, which are not expected to be settled in favour of either warring parties in the foreseeable future unless a buffer zone on the Turkish border is established. If this happened, Turkey would be reassured that the three Kurdish towns will be within the buffer zone, thus the Kurds would be unable to have  self-rule or an entity independent from the Syrian state, a development Turkey has been dreading because of its impact on the south of the country which holds a Kurdish majority.

  • The Political Designs behind the War on Gaza 

    Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem

    Political Comment

    As the ground offensive on Gaza widened, the regional and international efforts to conclude a truce between the warring sides intensified. As the US secretary of state headed for Cairo to allegedly promote the Egyptian initiative to defuse the tension, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon flew to the region for the same. The Egyptian initiative calls for a ceasefire, i.e. calm in exchange for calm, and Hamas for its part has laid down its conditions: essentially lifting the siege imposed on Gaza and opening all the border crossings and sea ports.

  • Communiqué to the Islamic Ummah 

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem

    Communiqué to the Islamic Ummah

    What has been occurring in Iraq is not unintentional. Steering Iraq towards drawing sectarian and ethnic borders is part of a plot that has been executed meticulously and gradually to portray that the children of the Ummah are the ones who want to slaughter one another and divide their lands.

    The events of Iraq - which is part and parcel of the Islamic lands - are but a continuation of a despicable plot announced ten years ago at the G8 summit and dubbed the "Greater Middle East Initiative". Three drafts, French, German and American, had been reviewed before the final formula of the "Initiative" got based on the US draft. In fact the three drafts of the "Initiative" did not differ in their ultimate objective, namely resisting what they had called the Islamic awakening, which in fact reflected the omens of the Ummah's penchant for returning to her Deen, shaping her revival and resuming her life by establishing her state on the basis of Islam.

  • Is Fighting Against Occupation Jihad? 

    Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem

    Answers to Questions

    Do we consider the fighting against the armies occupying the Muslims' lands, as is the case today, and in the absence of the Amir, be deemed as Jihad?

    Do we deem it part of the defensive Jihad, knowing that the Answer to a Question of 15 Rabi' al-Awwal 1429h mentioned neither the declared aims nor the undeclared aims of the fighting.

    Must we ascertain first that the fighting is for the sake of upholding the word of Allah supreme before we can call it Jihad?

    The Booklet expounded this point and determined the Shari'ah method according to which the real liberation of the lands occurs, as well as the aim sought from the liberation. As for the aforementioned Answer to the Question, it did not address this point.

  • The Outcome of the Second Round of the Geneva2 Conference

    The Outcome of the Second Round of the Geneva2 Conference

    The second round of the Geneva2 Conference has ended with no outcome worth mentioning. However, America has succeeded in bringing most of the opposition forces to the negotiating table despite all their previous objections to hold direct talks with the regime of Bashar Assad; she has embedded in their minds that the solution in Syria will  only be political. Perhaps the only noteworthy achievement is exposing the indifference of the regime towards the issue of the transitional governing body. This became evident when the international mediator, Lakhdar Brahimi, held the delegation of the regime responsible for the failure of the talks due to their insistence on debating the issue of combating terrorism ahead of the proposal related to forming the transitional governing body, which the opposition insisted on debating first. As for America, Britain and France, they directly accused the Syrian regime of thwarting the Geneva2 conference as soon as Brahimi announced the end of the talks on 16 February. On the same day, the Supreme Military Council of the free Syrian Army relieved General Salim Idriss from his duties as Chief of Staff and announced Brigadier General Abdel Ilah al-Bashir as his replacement. The Council claimed that Idriss was dismissed because of his major blunders in conducting the battles against the regime that led to the state of confusion the armed opposition had been experiencing on the ground. However, the real reason behind the decision was the announcement made by more than 30 opposition factions in September 2013 confirming their withdrawal from the coalition and its military wing.
