By Yvonne Ridley SO we might never know why someone hired a car and committed the murderous attack on a group of innocent people in London before turning his attentions on a policeman stabbing him to death. And yet the media has delivered a huge goal to Daesh by its round-the-clock coverage examining in minute detail every aspect of the 90 second attack. The first three days, in the absence of any real facts other than the subsequent identities of those killed and how they died, was all speculative.
By Yvonne Ridley Around four years ago I was told exactly how the Syrian Revolution began and who started it. After investigating the story I realised it challenges supporters of the Assad regime and silences those conspiracy theorists who blame everyone from the CIA to Mossad, the Saudis and Russian intelligence.
Syed Anwar From the last few years till now, 470,000 people were killed, including 55,000 children in Syria. 13.5 million fled and were displaced all over the world. Among them 6 million are internally displaced. 4.6 million are refugees outside Syria but mostly in neighboring Muslim countries.
Yvonne Ridley THE view on Donald Trump's first 100 days from this side of the Atlantic has been a bit like watching a car crash in slow motion. We've had the bombing of Syria and the beating of ever louder war drums towards North Korea, an on-off love in with Russia and China and a few u-turns over Muslim immigration and let's not forget the big, beautiful wall which will probably not be built.
â€œSurely the men who submit (to Allah) and the women who submit (to Allah), the men who have faith and the women who have faith, the men who are obedient and the women who are obedient, the men who are truthful and the women who are truthful, the men who are steadfast and the women who are steadfast,
Elder George THE past few years has seen a relatively limited posting of essays on my website (mensaction.net) because of what I considered a lack of involvement by the readership. After positing more than 160 essays and not having created much of a following I decided to take a hiatus. Then recently I thought of the advice of a friend who indicated the importance of getting the message out regardless of the immediate response. He said people will take action at the opportune time.
By Syed Jawed Anwar I fully support Donald Trumpâ€™s executive order boosting religious freedom by erasing IRS restrictions against political activities by tax-exempt religious organizations. He announced "no one should be censoring sermonsâ€ The order fulfilled a campaign pledge, during a Rose Garden National Prayer ceremony on May 4, attended by religious leaders, activists, and other leaders.
Nuh (Noah) (peace upon him) presented Islam to his nation --Tauheed (there is no god but one Allah-- and asked them to surrender to Allah to attain peace (Islam), Risalah (I am a Prophet and Messenger of Allah), and Aakhirah (the end of this world and the Day of Judgement when everyone will be accountable and will be rewarded or punished according to his/her deeds). He said to his nation, â€œThat you may worship (obey) none but Allah or else I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous dayâ€
By Elder George THE removal of restraints on female behavior provides women of the Western influenced world limitless opportunities to make whoopee as they increasingly and uninhibitedly express their emotions and desires. Even the so called enlightened women with New Age values say with spiritual conviction that right and wrong or good and bad donâ€™t exist. Isnâ€™t that wonderful?
By Yvonne Ridley WHEN I signed my first petition demanding justice for the Palestinian people I was a 13-year-old schoolgirl and it marked the start of what has become a lifetime commitment. From reading about the atrocities of Sabra and Shatila through to personally eye witnessing the aftermath of the Jenin Massacre and climbing on board a boat to break the Siege of Gaza, I thought that little more could shock me as I tried to raise awareness of such breathtaking injustices.
Elder George AN amendment to the proposed new health care bill in the United States requires that prospective health providers do not discriminate against people who have â€œpre-existing conditions,â€ which means already diseased people cannot be turned down by a health insurance company.
By Abubakar N. Kasim Toronto, Canada Words can't describe the magnitude of the horrific tragedy unfolding in Manchester, UK where at least 22 people have lost their lives including innocent children. It shows the barbaric nature of this evil act where even children are not excluded. Don't the evil perpetrators also have kids of their own, I wonder. Nothing can justify this horrific act. No religion, no ideology or even animalistic way of life can condone it no matter what.
Following yesterdayâ€™s tragedy in Manchester, the term â€œfalse flagâ€ is the hot new meme. A scandal has developed in the UK as Labour Party activist Debbie Hicks is being shouted down by the Establishment for pointing out that Theresa May will hugely benefit from the 22-22-22 Manchester spectacle. As the Daily Mail reported:
By Yvonne Ridley I am haunted by the Manchester bomb attack. Like many other people I'm angry, sad and confused, and have endured a rollercoaster of other emotions as I try to work out why a young British man would carry out such a revolting and savage act in the city where he was born. Donâ€™t worry about being labelled a snitch; if it saves lives, the short-term discomfort is worth it.
By Paul Craig Roberts Those of us who have exited The Matrix are concerned that there are no checks on Washingtonâ€™s use of nuclear weapons in the interest of US hegemony over the world. Washington and Israel are the threats to peace. Washington demands world hegemony, and Israel demands hegemony in the Middle East.
