There is conclusive proof, if proof indeed were needed, of Zionist participation in the takfiris’ crimes against governments in Iraq and Syria. On October 22, the Iraqi security forces captured Colonel Yusi Oulen Shahak from Israel’s Golani Brigade.

Opinion

The Zionists’ intensified attacks against innocent Palestinians at a time when Bani Saud are doing the same in Syria and Yemen should not surprise us. Palestinians have endured Zionist occupation for nearly 70 years.

Experience tells us that the “extremes” on both side of the Sunni-Shi‘i line of contact are going to be emotionally or mentally disquieted after reading this article.

Opinion

“Why is everyone talking about the refugees all of a sudden?” a friend messaged me last month. “Facebook is so annoying. It’s one crisis or another, and they just repost one article after another. By the time they are posting articles, the damage has al-ready been done!”

Editorials

The British colonialists have inflicted immense damage on the world of Islam. Nothing, however, compares in destructiveness to the imposition of the two illegiti-mate entities on the holiest places of Islam: the Najdi Bedouins (aka Bani Saud or the House of Saud) in the Arabian Peninsula, especially the Hijaz, and the Zionists in Palestine.

Editorials

After each election in the West — Barack Obama’s first election as president of the US in 2008, Jeremy Corbyn’s election as leader of the British Labour Party in Au-gust and the recent election of Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister of Canada — much euphoria is generated.

Main Stories

The Zionists are doing what they have always done: kill Palestinians indiscriminate-ly. Between October 1 and 24 (at the time of filing this report), heavily armed Israeli troops and illegal Zionist squatters (aka settlers), equally heavily-armed, have mur-dered at least 56 Palestinians, including unarmed protesters and bystanders.

Whatever Russia’s motives in joining the fight against the takfiri terrorists — and these have been dissected endlessly — they have resulted in dramatic changes on the ground in Syria.

News & Analysis

The Najdi Bedouins’ (aka Bani Saud or the House of Saud) hold on power has always been tenuous. It has become even more precarious because of recent developments in the region. Things are not working out as they had hoped for and their ill-conceived and totally destructive policies have constrained their options even further.

News & Analysis

The ballot papers were all printed and arranged in neat piles in each polling station. The ballot boxes duly locked were also delivered to the appropriate polling stations. There were even election officials present — a remarkable achievement in a country where the bureaucracy is notorious for its lethargy.

News & Analysis

The US and its allies in the P5+1 group of countries appear to be dragging their feet in fulfilling their part of the bargain while demanding Iran comply with all its conditions in the nuclear deal. On October 21, the Rahbar, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei sent a letter to President Hassan Rouhani pointing this out saying the Islamic Republic’s concessions on the nuclear file were conditional on the other side, especially the US, lifting all sanctions.

Canadians in overwhelming numbers rejected the hateful and Islamophobic policies of Stephen Harper, leader of the Conservative Party, in the October 19 federal election. He was booted out of office in one of the most divisive campaigns that he and his gang of racists and bigots led in Canadian history.

Canada has just lived through a fairytale decade, complete with evil jinn and youthful hero. Think of “Jack and the Beanstalk,” starring youthful naif, Justin Trudeau, and the giant raining evil down on Canadaland from the clouds, Stephen Harper.

Imagine if there were no toilets in the whole of North America, that is, the US and Canada. A total of 354 million people would be without toilets and forced to defecate in the open. It would be a pretty horrific, not to mention stinking experience.

Some commentators have described Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Washington (October 21–23) as a huge mistake. It is not difficult to see why. Smoke signals from the capital of the great Satan clearly indicated trouble ahead and it came aplenty so the question is, why did the “Lion of Punjab” (Mian Sahib to his buddies and admirers) still undertake the trip?

Special Reports

The politics of takfir (excommunication) in the contemporary Muslim world is at its peak because of the subtle sophisticated promotion of the phenomenon by external forces. This does not mean that takfir has not been known in Islamic history; it existed and still does in all major religions.

I performed Hajj this year accompanied by my elderly mother and wife. It was not a pleasant experience. We were shocked by what we saw. We were lucky to survive the stampede at Mina. We had planned to go for the Jamarat a little later because of my elderly mother. A number of my friends witnessed the stampede firsthand although they were not in the middle of the crowd or they too would have perished.

It is clear that the Zionists plan to demolish al-Masjid al-Aqsa and build in its place their mythical “third temple.” Gun-toting Zionist squatters are provided armed protection by the occupation forces and allowed to storm the sacred sanctuary desecrating its precincts as well as assaulting Muslims who try to protect the sacred site

It is depressing to note the media’s manipulation of Muslims. Our sympathy is aroused for Syrian refugees but there is hardly any mention of the suffering of the people of Yemen. Are they not human beings? Who determines which group of people deserve our help and who does not?

It is interesting to note what Russia has achieved in two months that the US and its “coalition partners” could not in a year against the takfiri terrorists.

Letters To The Editor

Police forces in every country have a very bad reputation, deservedly so. In the US, however, they are extra brutal. This has to do with America’s culture of guns and violence. Not surprisingly, the US leads in crime as well as the number of people in prison.
