America’s political system is rotten to the core. A tiny parasitical class at the top—less than 1% of the population—was hitherto able to divide people along race and ethnic lines. Most people have woken up to this ugly reality and are not prepared to accept the status quo any longer.
Twenty-five years ago, a horrific crime was perpetrated by the Serbs against Muslims in the heart of Europe in Srebrenica. Thousands of Muslim men and boys were massacred while the women were raped in what had been designated by the UN as a “safe haven”. Dutch forces tasked with protecting the unarmed Muslims just stood by while the genocide was carried out.
Muslims must carefully examine the origin of Hadith literature and consider whether some vested interests have deliberately manipulated these to suit their own agenda. It is important to sift the genuine hadith from fake ones, using the Qur’an as standard.
Sporadic acts of looting during protests against police brutality led the American establishment and media to try and delegitimize the protests. The ruling mega-thieves have been plundering America’s wealth for centuries; they are in no position to complain about petty thieves.
America is not run by people occupying ministerial or congressional seats. Its real masters operate behind the scenes who determine who should occupy the White House or sit in Congress. Trump will soon find out whether he would be allowed to remain in the White House.
The blow-up between India and China on the frozen peaks of the Himalayan mountains cannot be understood without examining India’s creeping military expansion into areas the Chinese consider vital to their geostrategic interests.
Police brutality in the US is inter-woven into the ruling power structure’s mode of operations as the long list of murders of innocent blacks shows.
More than three-quarters of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck while those at the top—the mega-thieves—have plundered $40 trillion of US wealth in the last 10 years. This is done quite “legally” since the laws are framed by their agents sitting in Congress.
The Islamic movement was missing from anti-government protests in Algeria last year. How did this come about when in the 1990s, the Islamic Salvation Front had swept all polls—local as well as those at state level? We examine the issue.
The Saudi regime will allow about 1000 people from the kingdom to perform Hajj this year but not Muslims from outside because of the pandemic. Muslims must work to end Bani Saud’s illegal occupation of Makkah and Madinah and challenge their distortion of Hajj rites to please their mushrik masters.
Will Afghanistan finally have peace after 40 years of war and bloodshed? This will depend on whether various Afghan factions can accommodate ethnic groups with divergent interests.
For Trump, exit from Afghanistan before the November presidential elections is the one act that he can present as ‘achievement’ of sorts. But is the American establishment prepared to allow him to do so?
The latest round of Western sanctions on Syria are meant to starve the people and push them to a point where they will rise up against the government. This is likely to fail, as have previous attempts even if it creates much misery for ordinary Syrians in the short-term.
Iran’s mineral wealth estimated at $700 billion may reach as high as $1.4 trillion. Once brought on stream, it will make Islamic Iran an economic powerhouse in the region. It is already a regional military power.
For the second time in a decade, the global community rejected Canada’s bid for a seat at the United Nations Security Council table. This has led to demands by human rights activists for Ottawa to have seriously review its pro-Israeli, anti-Palestinian policy.
Iran’s oil and food shipments to Venezuela are a game-changer that challenge US hegemony in its backyard. Iran sees Venezuela as a fellow victim of US-Nato bullying and is willing to extend a helping hand.
