HADITH OF THE WEEK
Abdullah bin Mas'ud (May Allah be pleased with him)
reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said:
"Truth leads to piety and piety leads to Paradise. A man
persists in speaking the truth till he is enrolled with
Allah as truthful. Falsehood leads to vice and vice leads to
the Fire (Hell), and a person persists on telling lies until
he is enrolled as a liar".

Western Powers Unite Against ISIS: Islamic volunteers
pouring in to Support ISIS.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
In view of the colossal propaganda campaign against the
Caliphate [ISIS]. It's important to remember the
USA invaded Iraq and after years of fighting installed a
puppet shia regime in Baghdad headed by Maliki "elected"
under the shadow of American tanks.
Attempts by Maliki to suppress the Sunni population led
to massive peaceful demonstrations in Mosul and Anbar
province. These were brutally crushed by the Shia
The Sunni masses rose up in armed struggle led by ISIS
[under Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's leadership]. The Shi;ite army
armed and funded by the US fled after ferocious attacks by
the mujahideen of ISIS on Mosul. Four divisions of Shii
military abandoned their heavy weapons, all provided by
America. US special forces arrived in Baghdad.
ISIS declared the Caliphate. Its shoora chose Abu Bakr
al-Baghdadi as Caliph. The Caliphate abolished the
imperialist borders between Syria and Iraq.
More US special forces were rushed to Iraq, to Baghdad
and Irbil. US supported bombing raids on ISIS resulted in
scores of deaths and injuries.
ISIS warned that it would behead two Americans in its
hands if the bombing raids continued. The attacks did not
stop and both Americans were beheaded, one of them an
Israeli with American citizenship.
America decided to go to war over the two brutal
beheadings. The media moved big time to support the
"atrocity" propaganda. The murders of 500 Palestinian
children in Gaza by the Israeli air force were forgotten.
The Israelis are armed, funded and supported by the US.
As Islamic caliphate forces moved against Iraqi Kurdish
forces, UK started arming them. ISIS casualties mounted. UK
was warned that a British prisoner would be beheaded in
retaliation for UNPROVOKED war activity by the British. He
was beheaded when the British continued their acts of war.
[Many of the Kurds of Iraq, under secularist groups,
supported the US occupation of Iraq. They are connected to
Israel and have been providing oil to the Jewish state.
On September 24, US air force with fighter bombers from
Saudi Arabia and UAE, attacked Islamic capital of Raqqa in
Syria as well as al-Nusra positions in Aleppo along with
salafist Ahrar al-Sham.. French jet bombers joined the raids
on Islamic positions.
On September 26, UK, Belgium and Denmark decided to join
the bombing campaign against ISIS. Denmark previously
insulted the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, by publishing cartoons
of the most beloved leader of Islam.
Spotlights and Guidance
from Br.Badi Ali
Stay away from depression: "Say: My servants who have
committed excesses against themselves, do not despair of
Allah's mercy. Surely Allah forgives all sins. He is Most
Forgiving, Most Merciful." The Quran 39:53]
Those who despair go astray. Never give up. "... Do not
despair of Allah's mercy.Verily, only the unbelievers
despair of Allah's mercy." [12:87]
Understand depression. It weakens faith and is the mother
of mental diseases.
Some people complain all the time. Use an optimistic
viewpoint and it will change your attitude.
Enhance your faith. Learn to accept fate. Count your
blessings. Think of the righteous woman who had lost an arm
and felt blessed that she had the other arm.
Focus on the positive and think of difficulty as an
opportunity to improve. Think of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh,
who on being surrounded by enemy tribes [al-Ahzab] promised
victory while he was digging the trench.
Surround yourself with positive people.
Optimism is learned behavior and positivity is
Accept the fact that there will be ups and downs in
Work on things to make them better. Don't let things
Remember that nothing is permanent. Everything
Focus on the PRESENT.

The Drama of Tahir Qadri, Imran Khan & MQM in Islamabad &
Karachi: North Waziristan and the Floods Ignored as
Political Wrangling goes on.
From New Trend's observers in Pakistan
Nawaz Sharif's government is known for its corruption and
nepotism. There are numerous reports of rigging in the
elections which brought Nawaz to power.
Imran Khan challenged the rigging. He was joined Tahir ul
Qadri who is known in Pakistan as a religious clown.
Imran and Qadri [known as TUQ] promised to cleanse
Pakistan and brought tens of thousands to Islamabad.
Gradually, the protest camp in Islamabad became
permanent. There are still around 15000 people encamped
there. Every night they have musicals which degenerate into
wild parties, dancing and singing.
The mystery of the source of food and money for this week
after week protest camp is intriguing Pakistanis.
The protestors are now calling for "revolution" and Qadri
has become something of a guru
Our sources say that America and the military are the
forces behind this ongoing drama meant to weaken Pakistan
and distract people from the genocidal military operation in
Nawaz Sharif is standing firm. His weak government is a
blessing to let the military continue its operations.
America supports him but it also supports TUQ and Imran Khan
[IK]. So USA has an A team and a B team with the real power
in the hands of the military.
The military is also interested in getting former
president General Musharraf out of a trial for treason which
became possible because Nawaz Sharif was mistreated by
Musharraf. So the military uses Imran to pressure Nawaz and
if he wants to stay, he has to let Musharraf go.
Very recently IK suddenly left Islamabad for Karachi and
got a HUGE welcome organized by MQM. Nawaz is cracking down
on MQM owing to its support for IK and TUQ.
Jamaat e Islami has been urging all parties to help the
victims of the catastrophic floods which have hit Pakistan.
None of the politicians are interested. LAH
Entire Shi'ite battalions wiped out by ISIS.
September 22: A heavily fortified Iraq military base, Camp
Suqlawiya, near Faillujah, which had been holding out
against ISIS for a wekk was stormed by martyrdom operators
in two armored cars packed with explosives.
The Shi'ite troops, funded, armed and trained by the US,
panicked and were hunted down. According to the Washington
Post and various news services, more than 300 Shi'ite troops
were killed, another 150 are missing, presumed dead, and
another 150 escaped in small groups,

now in Islamic hands
# 1 [Kobane]
Sept 28. Islamic mujahideen forces [ISIS] are now only 5
miles from the key border town of Kobane [Ain al-Arab in
Arabic] and are advancing from two sides. Large numbers of
communistKrdish forces known as YPG are entrenched in
Kaobane vowing to fight house to house.
During the week September 22 to 28 ISIS slowly advanced
against the Communists beating them back from village to
village with heavy casualties. Civilians influenced by
anti-ISIS propaganda are streaming into Turkey.
American jet bombers are now attacking the advancing
mujahideen [as we go to the press.] American bombing of
Islamic Caliphate's oil outlets continues.
Sept 27: Al-Nusra front lost 57 fighters during surprise air
raids by late model US jet bombers. The Americans claimed
that they were targeting a secret group called "Khorasan"
[mispronounced as "qorozon" bu US media. Al-Nusra was not
ready for an American attack, thinking Americans were aiming
only at ISIS. At least two leaders of the group have been
killed in the attacks.
[Late reports indicate that the US attacked all groups
fighting Syrian tyrant Assad, including the salafist Ahrar
Al-Nusra has not attacked American interests but is now
vowing to retaliate and is saying that these attacks are a
war on Islam, not only on al-Nusra.]
#3 [Kafr Diryan]
REPORT: U.S. AIR STRIKE IN SYRIA KILLS SIX CHILDREN, ZERO
[with thanks to Sis. Karin.]
Posted on September 25, 2014 by Paul Joseph Watson
"There are no ISIS members here"
Residents of a village in northwestern Syria are in shock
after U.S. air strikes demolished two neighborhoods, despite
there being no ISIS militants in the area, killing 27 people
including six children.
According to a report by Al-Jazeera, which is aligned with
Qatar, a vehement supporter of the U.S. military campaign
against ISIS, missiles targeting the town of Kafr Diryan
destroyed two residential areas, killing 27 people, most of
whom were civilians.
"The locals say that this is the first time that they were
attacked by missiles since the outbreak of Syrian
revolution. The paradox, they say, is they were bombed not
by the Syrian regime, but by an international coalition
which killed and wounded many of them under the pretext of
fighting terrorism," states the report.
One of the locals interviewed for the report asserted that
no ISIS militants were even active in the area."This
coalition is not against terrorism. It is against civilians,
as you can see. The revolution has been going on for four
years now, and not a single missile was shot at us by Bashar
Al-Assad and his gang. The coalition fired two missiles,
supposedly targeting ISIS, but there are no ISIS members
here, not even ISIS children."
While the U.S. air strike on Kafr Diryan failed to eliminate
any ISIS targets, the overall bombing campaign has had the
opposite effect, with 6,000 new ISIS members being recruited
since the United States' military campaign against Islamic
State began last month.

#5 [[Idlib province]
Syria air strikes kill 42, including 16 children: Assad & USA
Sep 22-Syrian government air strikes killed at least 42
people, including 16 children, in Idlib province in the
northwest, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on
The air raids on Sunday afternoon and evening killed 19
people, including six children, outside the city of Saraqeb,
and another 23 people, among them 10 children, in the town
of Ehsim, the monitoring group said. The province is largely
under rebel control outside its capital, Idlib city. The
strikes outside Saraqeb hit an area where civilians were
sheltering after fleeing repeated government air strikes on
the city, the Observatory said.
Footage of the aftermath of the attack in Ehsim posted on
YouTube by activists showed desperate civilians trying to
dig out a man buried up to his neck in the rubble of a
collapsed building. Another video showed the lifeless body
of a child, naked and covered in grey dust, lying on top of
shattered breeze blocks.

Obamanation in the White House & Impotent Black Faces
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City]
New York City - The Jews are hopping mad because the
prestigious Metroplitan Opera is presenting an opera
called....get this.... "The Death of Klinghoffer." This name
was very familiar to me. I thought he was a politician.
However, there was the Achille Lauro Cruise ship that was
taken over by Palestinians sometime in 1985. Leon
Klinghoffer, a Jewish man in a wheelchair, was killed and
The Jews were outside The Met, yesterday, protesting the
opera claiming that it promotes terrorism and antisemitism
(Will someone please tell European Jews that Semite is a
region tat ONLY covers Asia and parts of Africa, not
Europe)! One Zionist protester found that the plays
conveyance of humanity for the Palestinian terrorists
Peter Gelb (sounds Jewish) the head of the Metropolitan
Opera stated that the opera is a great work of art with
challenging themes. "To not put this opera on and to allow a
great work of art, which this is, to be suppressed, would be
the worst possible thing—not just for the Metropolitan
Opera, but for New York City, for art, and for the Jewish
community, quite frankly," Gelb says.
However, The MET has agreed to cancel only the live
simulcast of the show, which begins October 20, 2014. It
ends sometime in late November 2014. (NY1 News)
Black Faces in High Places (The Impotence of Black
As a Muslim, I do not participate in kuffar politics of ANY
kind. Nowhere in the Qur'an does Allah encourage Muslims to
work together with te kuffar. With the kuffar you must sleep
with one eye open. How can you establish any kind of
relationship with people who don't respect you and laugh at
you to your face?! Yet, there are Black people who continue
to promote the idea that voting works. They believe that we
should choose our own party: The Freedom Party. As long as
the kuffar are in control, NOTHING we do with the system
will work because it is a kuffar system with kuffar
The White House Obamanation
Pres. Obama had some audacity questioning the manhood of
another Black man in a domestic dispute with his wife when
Obama's own lack of manhood causes him to remain silent on
other matters such as Police criminal behavior nationwide!
His back pedaling moves are famous but, his silence on the
murders of Blacks at the hands of White officers, with no
convictions, is deafening! His murders children in other
countries and only sheds tears when White children, from
well-to-do families, are murdered by Adam Lanza in a
senseless, horrific massacre. Let's see, he has worked
tirelessly to ensure that America is the modern day Sodom &
Gomorrah, he cowers to his White subordinates, he has
undying support for Israel....He is deemed the most Powerful
man in the so-called free world but acts like a house
servant! He has powers that he refuses to use. This "man" is
the epitome of a Black face in a high place.
Congressional Black Caucus
The most impotent of Black mainstream political groups. They
stood by and allowed the people of New Orleans, Louisiana
drown. They either stood by because they lacked the power to
do anything or they just didn't care. I know it is the
latter because someone with an activist mentality is going
to go the more potent route to accomplish his/her goal to
stop White oppression/aggression in America. An activist
seeing him/herself rendered useless as a politician would've
returned to activism on some level. This political group of
Oreos (Black on the outside & white on the inside) enjoy
their titles. It gives them something to call home and tell
mama about. They have not raised their voices on the 50%
Black unemployment in America, police criminality, nor the
soaring rents along with gentrification in Black communities
nationwide. These issues are not just facing the Black
community but, the effects are very detrimental. What these
Oreos WILL DO is implore us to keep voting so that they can
keep their congressional seat.
Eric Holder HNIC of Justice Department
Now, he wants to review police tactics in Ferguson,
Missouri????! What about California, New York, Minnesota,
New Jersey, etc??? This man has the power to overhaul all of
the law enforcement agencies in this country but, has
remained silent on the murders of unarmed Black people! J.
Edgar Hoover's FBI senselessly murdered Black Panther Party
members in cold-blood yet, the Bloods & Crips Gangs are
celebrating their 50th anniversaries. You think this was
planned? Eric Holder's FBI is no different than his White
Gay predecessor, Hoover! They have murdered Muslim witnesses
and leaders with impunity because they don't believe anyone
will check them. Holder has been so bold as to state that
U.S. drone air strikes could be coming to America, soon, and
stated that it would be the President's prerogative to carry
them out! Well, don't let his bravado fool you. In a street
fight he'd lose. A coward like Holder and his law
enforcement minions love hiding behind their guns & badges
until they are exposed. Then, their Masters deem them
expendable because they can't take the heat! Black faces in
high places only serve one purpose: to abort any real effort
for improvement. They promote White supremacist lies and
help to distract the rest of us from the important issues
that we need to deal with in America. The kuffar are happy
to have them and if they refuse to play by the rules they
become a former member of Congress like Cynthia B. McKinney,
who continues her activism.
P.S.: I suspect that, just as with reports about Al-Qaeda
years ago, the reports on The Islamic State and Al-Qaeda
subsidiary groups will go quiet once they start gaining
ground against the kuffar armies. The New York Mayor
reported that U.S. airstrikes against Syria 9/23/2014 won't
affect the already amped up security around New York City.
It is Rosh Shoshonna and as usual the Mayor sends security
to the synagogues.

Agha Khani Attack on the Qur'an and on Ayesha, r.a., and
by Kaukab Siddique
An Agha Khani says repeatedly on line that the Qur'an has
been changed. The Agha attacks have become a regular feature
on line. Other Agha Khanis support these attacks. That is
kufr. There is no need of a fatwa for that. Both Shias and
Sunnis agree that the Qur'an we have today is the one
revealed to the Prophet, pbuh, and compiled by Usman, r.a.,
with the help of the sahaba, r.a.
Allah Almighty Himself says in the Qur'an that HE is the one
who safeguards the Qur'an. All Islamic scholars, Shia and
Sunni, classical times or modern times, agree that there is
absolutely no question of the Qur'an being changed.
Agha Khani not only claims that the Qur'an has been changed
but attributes it to deliberate effort by Usman, r.a., to
change it. I have quoted the Agha Khani and rebutted her
She is using the process of compilation to make her claim of
change. She has copied and pasted page after page from
Christian missionaries attacking Islam. If a scribe made a
minor error, which was duly corrected by comparison with
other manuscripts and with recitation by the memorizers or
huffaz, missionaries claimed the Qur'an had been
Usman, r.a., compared what various sahaba, r.a., had
collected with the compilation in the possession of Hafsa,
r.a., and then with the memorization of huffaz. So there
was no question of any discrepancy. A definitive copy was
prepared with the agreement of ALL SAHABA. r.a. This cross
referencing is the highest form of authentication.
There is no question with anyone, Shia or Sunni, that a
person cannot be a Muslim who says that the Qur'an has been
changed. [The highest Shia scholar, Ayatollah Khui, rebutted
the claim by crazy shias, that Usman, r.a., did or even
could have changed the Qur'an.]
As for the passing away of Ayesha, r.a., all historians
agree that she passed away peacefully. No scholar has ever
claimed that Muawiyya, r.a., or his governor, killed her or
tried to kill her. You can check histories written by
scholars OPPOSED to the Ummayads, such as Tabari, Ibn Sa'ad,
and Ibn Kathir. No one has made this silly claim that she
was killed. It is a shia fabrication which has no chain of
narrators. It is dirty sectarian gossip meant to abuse one
of the greatest Caliphs, Muawiyya, r.a.
Remember that both Hasan, r.a., and Hussain, r.a., did bayat
[formal oath of allegiance] of Muawiyya, r.a.
Ayesha, r.a., was no ordinary woman that she could be
murdered and no historian of the early era of Islam would
write about it.
Over 1400 years shias have fabricated all kinds of gossip
and stories which have no authenticity and no evidence.
So, what I am writing is not a fatwa but a statement of
historical fact which cannot be countered from any early
Islamic source which follows the rules of narrative and is
not someone's opinion.

Severe Sentences for al Qaeda Spokespersons: Son
Life in Prison for Association with Shaykh Osama bin
by Karin Friedemann [Boston]
Suleiman Abu Ghaith has not been accused of having a role in
the plot to attack the World Trade Center or of knowing
about it, but on September 8, 2014, he was sentenced by
federal court in Manhattan to life in prison for associating
with and disseminating messages on behalf of Osama bin
Abu Ghaith's attorney, Stanley Cohen argued that Mr. Abu
Ghaith was an Islamic theologian, speaking for Muslims more
broadly and had not been specifically referring to Al Qaeda
in the videos. Cohen said the prosecution had "gone out of
its way to exploit the anguish and pain of 9/11 to fill an
enormous evidentiary vacuum," making it "literally
impossible for a jury of New Yorkers to look objectively" at
"The government opened with 70 references to 9/11 and Osama
bin Laden. They closed with 167 references to Osama bin
Laden and 9/11. During the cross examination of Sulaiman Abu
Ghaith you saw a ten minute video of the World Trade Center
In early 2013 Abu Ghaith reportedly testified that he
described being consulted by Bin Laden on the night after
the 9/11 attacks for his opinion. Abu Ghaith testified that
he told Bin Laden that "America, if it was proven that you
were the one who did this, will not settle until it
accomplishes two things: to kill you and topple the state of
On September 12 he agreed to Bin Laden's request that he
make a public statement. Bin Laden said, "I am going to give
you some points and you build around them that speech."
The US indictment states that on September 12, 2001, Abu
Ghaith, appearing with, among others, Bin Laden and Bin
Laden's then-deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, spoke on behalf of
al Qaeda and warned the United States and its allies that "a
great army is gathering against you" and called upon the
"nation of Islam" to do battle against "the Jews, the
Christians and the Americans." Abu Ghaith addressed the US
Secretary of State, warning that "the storms shall not stop,
especially the Airplanes Storm" and advised Muslims,
children, and opponents of the United States "not to board
any aircraft and not to live in high rises."
He attributed the Sept. 11 attacks to the United States'
policies toward Muslims. "The American people must know that
they bear full responsibility."
"There are clear requirements under the law. You know, if
you want to turn around and indict people for words, there's
about 270 Congressmen and women right now that have said
some pretty incendiary things about a lot of things, maybe
we should start there," Cohen said.
"From the very beginning, this case was wrapped in a shroud
of secrecy, and an inability to get access to people."
Cohen said the judge refused to allow the defense to
introduce testimony from Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who pled
guilty to being the "mastermind" of 9/11 and is detained at
Guantánamo Bay. Cohen had argued that Mohammed, with his
unsurpassed knowledge of Qaeda operations, could help clear
his client. That the government does not consider Mohammed's
testimony to have relevance certainly sheds doubt upon
Mohammed's testimony, which was obtained under torture.
Cohen had sought a sentence of 15 years for his client,
saying that a life sentence would be "the harshest of
penalties for talk — and only talk." Comparing Abu Ghaith to
"an outrageous daytime 'shock-radio' host," Cohen emphasized
that his client had played no role in specific acts of
Asked whether he had ever taken part in any plan to kill
Americans or anyone else, Abu Ghaith said no. He had hoped
that his speeches and videos would have led the United
States to say, "Let's go and sit down and talk and solve
Abu Ghaith also testified that Bin Laden wanted him to
lecture in the Qaeda camps because the trainees had a "hard
"I need you to change that," Bin Laden told him. He said Bin
Laden wanted him to make them be merciful.
US prosecutor, Michael Ferrara taunted Abu Ghaith, "You're
telling this jury that Bin Laden asked you to speak at those
training camps where men were armed and learning how to use
guns because he wanted you to talk about mercy?"
"Yes," Mr. Abu Ghaith replied.
Abu Ghaith's assets have been seized by the US
On September 19, 2014 Adel Abdul Bary another Islamic media
spokesperson, who was extradited from the UK to the US,

Indian Prime Minister's visit
Indian Americans call for an end to growing repression of
minorities and erosion of civil liberties in India
Prime Minister Modi's visit should be an occasion to discuss
the current state of human rights and religious freedom in
Coalition Against Genocide (CAG), a broad alliance dedicated
to justice and accountability for the Gujarat pogrom of 2002
and to defending India's secular tradition, has marked the
occasion of Prime Minister Modi's arrival in the United
States with a call to people of all faiths and ideologies,
to work with renewed vigor against the repression of
minorities and erosion of civil liberties and to combat
inflammatory rhetoric with grassroots efforts to foster
harmony between different communities.
Mr. Narendra Modi was banned from entering the United States
since 2005, up until his election to the Prime Minister's
post, under the International Religious Freedom Act, for his
"egregious violations of religious freedom." The law
continues to be on the statute books, and its application in
the case of Mr. Modi was sound. However, Mr. Modi is now
able to visit the United States, under exemptions normally
accorded to heads of state. CAG has called for the law to be
applied to other officials in the Indian administration,
such as Mr. Amit Shah, who was only recently implicated in a
case of hate speech that contributed to the sectarian
violence in Muzaffarnagar in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
"The first 100 days of Mr. Modi's tenure as PM have shown to
the world the grave dangers posed by the Hindutva ideology
to pluralism and the rule of law," said Dr. Raja Swamy, a
spokesperson for CAG. "Since the national elections that
brought Modi's party to power, the northern state of Uttar
Pradesh alone has witnessed over 600 incidents against the
Muslim minority," added Dr. Swamy.
The fact that the growing intolerance under the new
dispensation is tearing apart India's social fabric is
evident from the following:
A relentless hate campaign against minorities fanned by
Parliamentarians from Mr. Modi's own party includes
conspiracy theories of Muslims luring Hindu girls into
marriage as a form of "love jihad," and the characterizing
of madrassas (Islamic religious schools) as dens of
terrorism. This has inflamed sectarian feelings and created
a sense of siege among minorities.
In BJP-ruled states, draconian laws have been instituted
to specifically target Christians. In 50 villages of
Chhattisgarh, practice of Christianity has been banned .
Tellingly, the Modi administration has remained silent on
the growing atmosphere of repression threatening Christians
in India, including the forced "re-conversions" of some
Christians to Hinduism.
In August, Mr. Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of the RSS
(India's largest Hindu nationalist militia), declared Sikh,
Jains and Buddhists, widely recognized as distinct religious
communities, as part of Hindu society. He further declared
anyone who treated them as distinct religious communities as
conspiring against Hinduism. This attack on religious

The Intelligence Bureau of India, which now directly
reports to Mr. Modi, has issued a report identifying key
human rights, educational and environmental NGOs as
anti-national groups hindering the development of India.
These groups include Amnesty International, Greenpeace and

have also been blocked in what can result in a serious
erosion of civil rights culture in India.

Ramsey Clark Takes up the Cause of Dr. Aafia's release
[Courtesy The Deen Show]
Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark has said that Dr.
Aafia Siddiqui is innocent and has been victimized by the
international politics for power. "Dr Aafia Siddiqui was
victimized by the international politics being played for
power. I haven't witnessed such bare injustice in my entire
career," the Daily Times quoted Clark, as saying.
"Neither did Dr Aafia kill anyone, nor did she attempt it.
In fact she was shot thrice and should be released
immediately," he said, adding that relations between
Pakistan and the U.S. could be strengthened through
repatriation of Dr Aafia. Clark expressed his intention
to gather people in America, for a one-point agenda of Dr
"Significant peace and justice activists will join me in
promoting this agenda. Under the law, justice should be
provided to each and everyone without any condition," he
Clark hailed the role of Pakistani people and particularly
lawyers, saying that the nation's voice on state level could
play a significant role in Dr Aafia's repatriation. He
vowed that he would raise his voice for her repatriation at
all levels in the U.S.A.

Leading Islamic Scholar Warns Muslims:
The West sees Caliphate as a Danger.
Mohtram Kaukab Bhai, Salaam
You are correct. Our so-called Muslim leadership is ignorant
about the developments of Muslim world and the game plan of
the vested interests of the secular West including that of
Bharat and American foreign diplomacy which is mostly based
on spreading hate against Muslim, Islam and Prophet Muhammad
(S) one way or the other and opposing the emergence of of
Islam anywhere as a political entity. This is the focal
point of their foreign policy.
They don't dig into its depth and try to know how and where
it originated. Their enmity goes back to their joint hate
red against Ottoman Khellafah when the secular West was
desperate to reach the Indian Ocean Markets. So, they
conspired with Mohammad Ali Pasha, the Ottoman Governor of
Egypt and Hejaz in mid 17th. century and invented the slogan
of "ARAB LIL ARAB" and tried to separate the South East
portion of the Sultanate from the domain of Khelafah. They
succeeded to do so in the wake of First World War in
separating it in early 20th century.
So, any step to revive the Khelafah gives warning signals to
Anglo-Euro-American "JAGIRDAR" of Imperial Powers and our
ill -informed modern Muslims go on trumpeting their empty
drums. I fee pity for each of them.
I wish they would have tried to view the world in a
different perspective. To day the west wants to dominate the
globe by its hypocritical behavior and our Muslim leadership
becomes its easy prey. They start harping on their tunes out

#2 Anti-Khilafa Coalition & the Unending War
Written by Dr Firoz Mahboob Kamal
The coalition of killers
The disease of imperialism survives and thrives only on
invasion, occupation and plundering of other countries.
Brutal suppression, ethnic cleansing and genocidal killing
are the tools that give it prolonged sustenance. Hence,
finding a new ground for an invasive war is its survival
necessity. The Indians, red Indians, Africans, Australian
aborigines, Latin Americans and the Maoris of New Zealand
have been the worst victims of the disease for centuries.
The colonial empires have died, but imperialism as a disease
still survives. Hence it drives the USA more than seven
thousands miles away from its seashore to Iraq and
Afghanistan to feed its imperialistic appetite. President Mr
Barack Hussein Obama's election pledge for ending the war in
Iraq and Afghanistan turned nonsense; it has proved mere
farcical bluff. The Western nations that killed more than 70
million people in two World Wars and massacred several
millions more in their wars of occupation in Algeria,
Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and other third world countries
found a new agenda to forge a new alliance for further
invasion, occupation, killing and plundering. This time, the
agenda is destruction of the newly formed Islamic caliphate
and killing the Islamists. Since Islam and the Islamists are
not confined in Iraq and Syria, rather spread all over the
world, the war turns global and looks unending.
The Islamists of Iraq and Syria didn't attack any Western
country; but to justify their war against the Islamists and
Islamic khilafa, the imperialists have a new set of
arguments. Firstly, they reject Islam's core beliefs and
institutions with hateful disapproval. They labelled khilafa
and sharia as medieval barbarity; called it anti-women,
anti-education, anti-human rights; and announced unfit to
have a place in the modern world. Such a toxic idea against
Islam's fundamental institutions itself is enough to be a
good recipe for a perpetual bloody war against the
Islamists. These arrogant imperialists not only define what
is fit or unfit for the modern world, but also define Islam
and muslimness of the Muslims. Recently, the British Prime
Minister Mr David Cameron labelled the Islamists as monster,
and denied calling them as Muslim. Such inflammatory speech
adds more fuel to the exiting flame of hatred against the
imperialists. Freedom, human rights, right of
self-determination and the liberation war against the
colonial occupation were never welcome to these
imperialists; rather always labelled as terrorism. They
don't like to see the Muslims as full Muslims; rather wish
them slip away from Islam's core values and teachings. They
don't hide their strong dislike against the full practice of
the Qur'anic Islam -as practised by the prophet of Islam
(peace be upon him) and his great companions. Islam and
muslimness must fit into their own frame of definition and
their wish-list. Hence, recent revival of khilafa -Islam's
most important political infrastructure and the
establishment of sharia are labelled as great crime
punishable only by an invasive war and death. So it faces
the united wrath of the imperialists.
Consensus against Islam
The countries like the USA, Russia, China, India, France,
the UK, German, Canada, Australia and other kuffar countries
have long quarrels on many issues. (Note: Throughout the
holy Qur'an, Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala used the word "kuffar"
to describe the deniers of Islam; therefore what can be the
best sunnah and most rewarding than following the sunnah of
Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala). But they have a perfect consensus
on one issue: they are not ready to tolerate emergence of
Islam as an alternative way of life. They are not ready to
accept the revival of caliphate either. In the club of
global powers, they are deeply against giving any space for
the Muslims. From its very inception, the imperialists have
established the full occupation of the UN's decision making
club -the Security Council. Hence 55 million British could
get a permanent seat in the UN Security Council, but more
than 1300 million Muslims are denied any access! They claim
the full political ownership of the whole world: the Muslims
are not allowed to have any say even on their own religious
affairs like sharia and khilafa. They also have a consensus
to sustain the status quo. In such a milieu of imperialistic
occupation, the USA finds no difficulty in getting the
coalition partners in its war against the Islamists and the
revival of caliphate. In recent NATO summit at Newport in
the UK, the US, the UK, France, German, Italy, Canada,
Australia, Poland and Denmark have already declared their
readiness to join the coalition. Such convergence of the
imperialistic agenda of these partners made the US warlords
more arrogant and aggressive. Hence while chairing a meeting
of these ten countries, John Kerry -the US Secretary of
State told, "It may take a year, it may take two years, it
may take three years, but we are determined." And on
10/09/14, the US President Barak Hussain Obama described
Islamic State a cancer and vowed to destroy it. He also
announced that the jihadists will not find any safe haven in
any part of the world. He told that Islamic State is a
threat to the Americans and their ally. He argued, if
Islamic State survives, the USA can't be a safe haven for
its own citizens.
However the USA understands its own weakness. Fighting
against Islamists will not be an easy job for the
Westerners, therefore looks for partners from the Muslim
countries. In search of the partners, the US Secretary of
State Mr John Kerry has already started a campaign in the
Muslim World. He visited Saudi Arabia on 11/09/14 and met
leaders of the Arab gulf countries. In a press conference in
Jeddah, John Kerry told, Islamic State fighters are barbaric
terrorist and they should not be allowed to survive. He
argued that Arab states should take the key role in the war.
Ten Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Qatar
have declared their willingness to support the US war
against Islamic caliphate. These countries find this war
against khilafa as their own war of survival. They fully
understand that if the khelafa survives, they have to
quickly disappear. These Arab rulers can't stand on their
own feet: fully dependent on the USA for their own survival.
Therefore, how can they help the USA in its war against
Islamists? However they can be used as deceitful camouflage
on the body of kuffar coalition to deceive the Muslims.
The globalisation of terror: Is the beginning of World War
War itself is a great terror. Such terror gets quickly
globalised if a world power like the USA gets involved. The
USA did it before in World War I and II; now repeats it
again in its crusade against the Islamists. It can easily
turn this war into World War III. As a result of its vile
campaign, the White House now claims that 37 countries from
Albania to the UK have pledged to join the US in its war
against the Islamists and the revival of khilafa. It is no
more hidden that interfering in internal affairs of other
countries is the essence of the US foreign policy. They live
about more than 7 thousand miles away from Iraq and Syria.
The US doesn't want any safe haven for the Islamists even in
a Muslim country; but wants the whole world as a safe haven
for its own citizens. The imperialists have their own set of
definition for terrorism, barbarity and inhumanity.
According to them, even killings of millions of civilian
people in two World Wars by the Allied Forces or dropping
atomic bombs are not barbaric. The killings in Algeria,
Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq are not barbaric either:
rather lauded as Western endeavours to teach democratic
values to the people of Third World countries.
Wolf doesn't kill or condemn another wolf. They are the
partners in the same crime. Likewise, the USA never condemns
the barbarity of Israelis and other war criminals.
Similarly, the gang of thugs ruling the Arab countries like
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain and many others
didn't condemn the Israeli atrocities either. In its recent
war in Gaza, Israel killed more than 2 thousand civilians
and injured more than 10 thousands. The Israeli war planes
destroyed thousands of houses, shops and offices. None of
the Western governments asked the Israeli government to stop
such massacres. On the contrary, Israel received full moral,
political and military support from the US and its ally. Due
to such support, the UN couldn't pass a single resolution
denouncing Israeli atrocities. Neither did they condemn the
Egyptian army's recent killings of civilians and barbaric
suppression of the basic human rights. Rather, the USA and
other imperialists are recruiting the same brutal killers as
the partners in their war against Islamists. Mr John Kerry
-the US Secretary of State told during his recent visit in
the Middle East that Egypt will play a key role in the
coalition. President Bashar al-Assad has killed more than
two hundred thousand people in Syria and caused catastrophic
devastation in that country. Instead of taking any action
against such a pathological killer, the coalition of the
imperialist killers is now knocking his door to beg his
partnership against the Islamic State.
Patronising the terrorists & demonising the Islamists
The greatest loss of human life and the worst brutality in
history didn't happen by the wild animals or by the gangs of
street thugs. Such crimes were always committed by the state
terrorists. The Muslims of Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan,
Iraq and Syria are the worst victim of such terrorism.
During the years between 1992 and 1995, the most brutal
genocide took place in the backyard of the West. It was in
Bosnia Herzegovina. More than 2 hundred thousand Bosnian
Muslims were slaughtered; more than 20 thousands women and
girls were raped. Their houses and shops were burnt down.
The USA, the UK, France and other NATO countries had the
capacity to quickly stop such genocide, rape and
destruction. They didn't do anything; rather the helpless
Muslims were left amid the Serb wolfs. No US plane or drone
was seen in the Bosnian sky. No western leader made any tour
to mobilise world leaders against such genocide. Rather,
many mercenaries from the UK, France, Greece and other
Western countries were allowed to join the Serb and the
Croat terrorists to kill the Bosnian Muslims -as many Jews
from the US and Europe joined Israel's recent war of
genocide in Gaza.
Even many of the Westerners took part in the genocide of the
Bosnian Muslims as UN peace keepers. More than 8 thousands
helpless Bosnian Muslims who took shelter in the UN premise
of Srebrenica were handed over by the Dutch peace-keepers to
the Serbs for wholesale slaughter. The massacre went on
broad day-light with loud sound of firearms from the nearby
killing field. The Dutch peace keepers had the capacity to
save those innocent lives. But they decided to do anything.
Some Muslim country wanted to send some troops to save the
Muslims from the Serb butchers, but the US President Bill
Clinton prevented that move too. Like President George W
Bush and President Obama, he too showed the real American
love for the Muslims. The USA came to the Bosnian stage only
when the Muslim jihadists from other countries started
joining their Muslim brothers in their defensive jihad and
stood as a formidable force against the Serb. In the name of
peace, the US president Bill Clinton and his Western cronies
played another deceitful game against the Muslims. In the
name of so-called Dayton Peace Agreement, the Serb killers
were hugely rewarded. In Bosnia Herzegovina, the Muslims
constitute 44% of the population. But they were given only
30% of the land. The Serbs are only 31% of the population,
but were given 49% of the land. This is a sample of the US
as well as Western justice for the Muslims.
In Bosnia, the Serb brutality against the Muslims went on
for three and half years, from 1992 to 1995. But the USA and
its Western partners couldn't find a single day for taking
any initiative to stop that genocide. The UN Security
Council was not mobilised to take any action either. But now
a full-fledged global war is being organised by the US and
its NATO partners against the revival of Islamic khilafa.
Did Islamic State fighters kill 200 thousands people as were
killed in Bosnia? Are women and girls being raped there by
the Islamists? Beheading of two US journalists and a British
were given global publicity. But heading of many jihadists
did not receive any publicity or condemnation. The New York
Times published a report on 26.08.2014 that a jihadist of US
origin was beheaded by Free Syrian Army fighters. This Free
Syrian Army is supported by the USA and its ally. The daily
Telegraph of London published a news on 10.09.2014 that at
least 2 Islamic State fighters were beheaded by Shia militia
built by Iranian government. That beheadings were not
Why khilafa is so crucial?
Embracing and practising some faith and beliefs is Islam.
When a state is possessed by Islam, it gives tremendous
political and military power to Islamic faith and beliefs.
If faith doesn't possess a state, it fails to emerge as a
meaningful power. Neither can contribute positively to
enhance peace, nor can mould societies. Such a stateless
faith also fails to make any significant impact domestically
and internationally. Islam is the faith of about 1300
million people today. Since Islam does not possess any
state, hasn't any impact on politics, law, judiciary,
education and culture of the Muslim countries, let alone
make any global impact. All such crucial arenas of societies
are taken over by the anti-Islamic beliefs and their
Ownership of 57 Muslim states is indeed in the hand of
secularists, nationalists, atheists and monarchists; and
none possessed by Islam and the Islamists. Hence Islam
couldn't get any real benefit from these states. Instead,
most of the Muslim states -especially the oil-reach Arab
states are de-facto assets for the imperialist warlords.
Even the rulers are their assets, too. Therefore, the US,
the UK, France and other imperialist countries could count
them as servile partners in their fight against Islam and
the Islamists. Hence for fighting the war against the
revival of khilafa, the imperialist kuffars do not need to
bring their own foot-soldiers to the Muslim lands. The
rulers of the Muslim countries and their cronies are ready
to play the necessary role for them. To understand their
subservient role, it is worth noting that while the
defenceless people of Gaza were being slaughtered, these
rulers didn't raise any voice of protest against Israel.
Ownership of a land must not go to any autocrat ruler,
people, tribe, clan, party or army; rather to its creator
Allah Subhana wa Tawala. His laws should get the supremacy
in the land. For the Muslim ummah for all ages to come, this
is the legacy of the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him).
Every Muslim is the khalifa -the political viceroy of Allah
Subhana wa Tawala and His prophet (peace be upon him) to
continue with that legacy. Revival of khalifa remains the
only route to establish such ownership of Allah Subhana wa
Tawala on His lands. And only this way the Muslims can
attain freedom from the occupation of the external and
A man is indeed the political, cultural and ideological
expression of his inner faith. Belief in Allah Subhana wa
Tawala is not the only element to be a Muslim. It also
entails his belief in His sovereignty, His law, His holy
book, His all prophets, His angels, and His day of judgement
too. Due to such distinctive faith, a Muslim is visibly
different in his name and nomenclature, culture and
politics, behaviour and attitude from a non-believer. His
physical, linguistic or ethnic attributes have little
importance in the making of his Muslim identity. It is
crucially important to protect such territory of Islamic
belief from corruption. For protection of faith, Muslims'
own intent and ability are not enough: rather needs an
Islamic state and its supportive institutions. Teachings of
many great prophets like Hazrat Musa (AS) and Hazrat Isa
(AS) were mostly lost due to absence of such supportive
state and state institutions. If the state is possessed by
evil forces, the state institutions play coercive role to
corrupt the Divine beliefs. Under the occupation of the
colonialists, the state institutions of the Muslim countries
were used day and night to corrupt the Muslims morally,
ideologically and culturally and turn them enemies of Islam.
As a result, these home-grown enemies now join the foreign
enemies to fight against Islam's own institutions like
caliphate and sharia.
The panicking west
Islam always makes a history of great achievement whenever
it possesses a state. Khilafa is the political
infrastructure that always gives profound power to the
Islamic faith and also the Muslims. The early Muslims were
not even half a million; but they could easily defeat and
put the final nails on the coffins of two World Powers -the
Persian and Roman Empires. It is showing its strength even
today. When Islam could possess the people of Afghanistan in
the eighties, it could put the final nails on the coffin of
Soviet Union -one of two World Powers. The same scenario is
repeating again. With the emergence of Islamic caliphate in
Iraq and Syria, the whole West is now panicking. The USA
can't dare fight the nascent khilafa alone, rather needs a
40-country coalition. They are also frightened to put their
feet in land of Islamic state.
In order to keep the Muslims powerless, the imperialists
want to keep the ownership of the Muslim countries tightly
in the hands of their nationalist, secularist, monarchist
and autocratic stooges. In Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Saudi
Arabia and Kuwait they have big-size military bases. These
bases are not there to promote the basic human rights or
protect any people or support any elected governments,
rather to protect their own stooges as well as their own
national interest. Through these stooges, the imperialists
keep the ownership of these countries and their wealth in
their own hands. It is indeed the well managed post-colonial
phenomenon of the Western imperialism. Any revolt against
these stooges is perceived in the West as the revolt against
their own ownership. This is why they were unhappy with the
removal of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Ben Ali of Tunisia.
Now they are rejoicing the retake of power in Egypt by their
own man -General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi. Mr Sisi is now their
partner in the war against Islamists.
Playing with fire
The revival of khilafa and implementation of sharia are
exclusively the internal issues of the Muslims. It is a
matter of their faith. No non-Muslim has any business here.
The Westerners may adopt homosexuality, same sex marriage,
pornography, free sex and other vices as their way of life.
These are their internal affairs. The Muslims never
interfered on those issues and never launched any war
against them on those Western beliefs and practices. But
declaring war against the revival of khilafa, the Western
imperialists are now playing with fire. Of course, there are
many opponents of khilafa and sharia inside any Muslim
countries. But the imperialists have no right to take any
side and use such difference to launch war against any
Muslim country. Now the West's war is no more against
Afghans or Arabs, it is against Islam. The war front is no
more limited to one or two countries, now it is global.
Although it is claimed that the war is against the Islamic
State's militant fighters, but actually the killings are not
confined to Islamic State fighters either. Now the whole
Muslim World has turned into Gaza. And Israel is not alone
in the killing; many more new Israels have joined the
killing too. The USA itself is now a big Israel with Israeli
values and Israeli venom against Islamists. Hence Hamas is
not the only target. Now all Islamists are considered as
Hamas -as recently argued by the Israeli Prime Minister Mr
Netanyahu. Hence what Israel did against the children, the
women and the unarmed civilian of Gaza; the USA is doing the
same in Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan, Somalia and
other parts of the Muslim World. For example, on 10th of
September, the US air strike in Afghanistan killed 11
civilians; of them 2 are women and 2 are children. (Source:
Despite all these bombing successes, the Western
imperialists suffer from deep frustration. They have spent
more than trillion dollars to fight the wars against
Islamist, but with little success. They dropped thousands of
bombs to flatten cities and villages. They killed and maimed
millions too. They did war in Afghanistan for 13 years, but
couldn't finish the war. They couldn't end the war in Iraq
either. They could kill Saddam Hussain, but couldn't finish
the Islamists. Saddam's Iraq has collapsed but Islamic
caliphate has emerged. The ongoing war against Islamists
still needs trillion of dollars; but with little prospect of
success. Where from the money will come? Such frustration
makes people more sadistic and aggressive. And a sadist
always enjoys the deaths and sorrows of others. It is a
moral disease; and a losing war makes such disease hugely
epidemic. That is exactly happening in the imperialist camp.
Hitler and his people had similar problems, too; hence built
gas chambers to burn Jews. For the same reasons, the USA
dropped atom bombs and now needs drones, Guantanamo bay and
Abu Gharib, rendition, torture cells and water boarding.
Hence killing women, children and the unarmed innocents in
their beds in nights by unarmed drones, locking up people
without trial and doing the water boarding have been the
popular sports of the US President and his partners in
The ideological weapon
Islam's war against the enemies is mostly ideological. The
Muslim armies never win any war by superior arms, rather by
superior faith and ideology. In terms of ideological
ammunitions, Muslims have no match. The Roman and the
Persian empires had superior weapons, but didn't have
superior ideas. Hence were easily defeated by the Muslims.
The Muslims got the most powerful ideological weapon from
none else, but from Allah Subhana wa Tawala. It is the holy
Qur'an. It strongly connects people with Allah Subhana wa
Tawala. As long as the Muslims used this powerful weapon, no
power could defeat them. During the first 13 years of Islam
in Makka, the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) didn't
build a single mosque or a madrasa. Rather from day one, he
started his war with the most powerful artillery of human
history -the holy Qur'an. It was given to him on the very
first day of his prophet-hood. In war of ideas, knowledge
comes first. In such war, ignorant men or women have no
role; rather runs the risk of becoming an enemy of Islam -as
happening with ignorant people of the Muslim world. Hence,
it is a major sin to remain ignorant of the holy Qur'an.
But a poor or disabled man with the knowledge of holy Qur'an
can make tremendous contributions. Only this way the Muslims
win hearts and minds of people. The US deployed the most
sophisticated weapons in its war. It also spent trillions of
dollars. But that helped only to slaughter millions of men,
women and children and destroy hundreds of cities and
villages, but didn't help win the hearts and the minds.
Therefore, the US had to swallow a humiliating defeat both
in Afghanistan and Iraq. The same happened to the Soviet
Union in Afghanistan. Ideology brings inner change and works
as the most powerful mobilising force. Later on, the Muslim
rulers also failed to win the heart and mind of the people
when leadership was taken by the Turks, the Moghuls and
other tribal leaders. Apart from warfare, they possessed
hardly any other skills. In terms of understanding the holy
Qur'an and upholding the Qur'anic mission, they were quite
different from the early Muslims. Hence their empires
expanded, but not Islam. The West suffers from a huge
ideological void; hence finds difficulties to recruit
foot-soldiers for its war against Islam. They need to spend
at least one million US dollar per person to keep people in
the war field. But the Islamists all over the world are
making distinctive difference. Thousands of young people
from Europe, America, Africa and Asia are rushing towards
Islamic caliphate to sacrifice their life. The respective
governments are facing difficulties to put a check on their
In Islam, a Muslim government has a Divine responsibility.
It must possess the political will and the social policies
to equip every believing man and woman with Qur'anic
artillery -as was the policy of the prophet Muhammad (peace
be upon him) and his rightly guided khalifas. Under the
occupation of the enemies, such a Divine weapon was kept
unused or hidden from the public eye. Taking the Muslims
away from Qur'anic knowledge was the prime agenda of the
imperialists -as was made public by the former British Prime
Minister Mr Gladstone in his speech in the British
Parliament. Under the state managed madrasa education
system, the Muslims were encouraged only to recite this
greatest gift of Allah Subhana wa Tawala, not to understand
it. As a result of the colonial legacy, the holy Qur'an is
the least understood book in the Muslim World. Even today,
the imperialists want the execution of the same policy in
the Muslim countries.
The greatest crime of the imperialists
The establishment of khilafa provided a new opportunity to
the Muslims. After a long period of 90 years, the rule of
sharia and the prophetic tradition of governance get a new
chance to flourish. It is the most significant event in the
Muslim world in last 90 years. The western imperialists have
already committed a series of crimes against the Muslim
ummah by occupying the Muslim countries, plundering their
wealth and corrupting their faith. But now they look more
desperate to commit the greatest crime against the ummah by
snatching the long awaited Islamic khilafa from them. They
do not like that the Muslims should demolish the imposed
boundaries of their states. The Europeans dismantled the
Berlin wall. They have also dismantled their national
boundaries and forged European Union. In recent referendum
on Scotland's independence, the British imperialists
lectured on "better together" to the Scottish people. But
the same is not allowed in the Muslim world. The Muslims are
not allowed to dismantle the Berlin walls and the artificial
boundaries that were built to divide the Muslim ummah. They
consider these walls indispensable for the containment of
Muslim power inside the post-colonial chicken states. The
Islamic khilafa fighters dismantled the border between Syria
and Iraq. Such dismantling border is indispensable to attain
a larger Muslim state; therefore gateway to become a world
power. So it is not acceptable to the enemies of Islam. They
don't want to see Muslims attaining such a dominant status
on the world stage. Hence the USA war planes have returned
back to bomb the newly found Islamic caliphate. The UK,
France, Australia and other NATO countries are also in hurry
to start the bombing.
The hidden strength
The Muslims never won a war with the military might. They
won only by the help of Allah Subhana wa Tawala. Allah
Subhana wa Ta'ala reveals in the Qur'an, "Victory is always
from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty and Wise."-(Sura Anfal,
verse 10). So, victory is decided only by Allah Subhana wa
Ta'ala, and by none else. This is a core belief of a Muslim.
Hence, miracles happen in the war fields. Therefore, by the
Divine help a small number of ragtag soldiers of the Arabian
Desert could easily defeat the huge professional armies of
Roman and Persian Empires. The same miracle happened in
Afghanistan. Both the Soviet Union and the USA had massive
army of highly trained professionals in Afghanistan. They
have heavy weapons of mass destruction, too; but both the
World Powers couldn't win the war against the ragtag
Mujahideens. The deciding role in the war was played by
Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala - the Most Powerful and the Most
Wise. He has His unseen army of Angels. He looks at the
souls of the believers and counts their intent and
sacrifices. If they show their solemn intent to please Him
and sacrifice their life and wealth in His Way, Allah
Subhana wa Ta'ala also shows His intent to help them. He
even turns tiny stones into accurately guided missiles and
uses sea water as war weapons. Here lies the strength of the
Islamists. The army of arrogant Abraha of Yemen and Pharaoh
of Egypt tasted that. When the Muslims turn into Allah
Subhana wa Ta'ala's army, Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala brings His
reserve army into the war fields, too. It is a Qur'anic
promise that proved true again and again. Who is better than
Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala to keep the promise?
The arithmetic flaw & the folly
The imperialists can't think of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala
Divine Army. So, in their equation of powers, the most
powerful player stands missing. Therefore, along with the
conceptual flaws, this is a gross arithmetic flaw in their
calculation. The imperialists' war against Islamic caliphate
has huge faith and ideological dimensions; it is not a war
between two armies, rather between two faiths. Neither is it
a war only against the Iraqi or Syrian Islamists. Khelafa is
a pan-Islamic institution: hence belong to all Muslims.
Hence defending khilafa does not lie on the shoulders of the
Iraqis and the Syrians alone. When the Osmania khilafa was
attacked by the enemies, even the poor Bengal Muslim
households set a donation pot for the khalifa. Before
cooking, they used to save a fistful of rice from the day's
allocation for the family in that pot every day. It is such
a sensitive issue that influences Muslims globally. Although
the war in Afghanistan against the Russian occupation was
100% jihad, but none of the Indian Muslims joined that war.
No one from South America joined the Afghan jihad either.
Reason, the issue of khilafa was not involved in Afghan
jihad. Moreover, it was mixed with some ethnic,
nationalistic and tribal elements. Hence, it couldn't touch
the Muslims' emotional fibres so strongly and globally. But
with declaration of khilafa, the situation has taken a new
turn. Now the people from Russia, China, Europe, India,
Australia, North and South America are joining the jihad in
Iraq and Syria.
The unwinnable war
In Afghanistan and Iraq, the USA and its ally have carried
out horrendous atrocities by killing, injuring and torturing
millions of men, women and children. They caused huge
destruction of physical infrastructure. France has done the
same in Algeria. Such crimes have already boiled up the
Muslims' blood to explosion point. The continuation of such
crimes and dropping more bombs can explode the Muslims'
sentiment not only in Iraq and Syria, but also in other
parts of the world. The USA and its ally are failing to
understand the consequence of such crimes. To justify
further war, President Obama and his cronies argue that they
want to destroy safe haven for the Islamists. But amid such
boiling heat of anti-West sentiment, can they themselves
enjoy any safe haven in any part of the world -even inside
their own countries? They can count only the number of
Jihadists, but they can't count the invisible faith and
sentiment of the angry Muslims. The return back of the US
bombers to Iraq indeed shows how badly they lack the
insight. Mere presence of the US and the NATO forces in Iraq
and Syria will be a strong catalyst factor to pull more
Islamists to jihad from all over the world. With the restart
of US bombing against khilafa, the number of Islamic State
soldiers made a three-fold jump: from 10 thousands to 31
thousands. The war is now taking a global shape. It will
make the war not only a head-on clash of ideas, rather an
unending war between Islam and the West. The USA and its
forty-nation-coalition couldn't win a war in Afghanistan;
another in Iraq. Can they win hundreds' of such concurrent
wars all over the world? 19/09/2014
