Views on the news - 14/08/08

West continues to insult Muslims
On 9/8/2008 the BBC reported that plans to release a novel entitled ‘The Jewel of Medina’ about the messenger (saw) of Allah and his wife A'isha were scrapped by US publishers Random House. The publication was not halted because of some deep regret that the material is offensive to Muslims; rather the safety of the author Sherry Jones was the primary concern for the publisher Random House to stop the publication. The West habitually produces offensive materials aimed at insulting Muslims and attacking Islam. These assaults are then justified under the banners of ‘freedom’,’ liberty’, ‘tolerance’ and other pathetic values or excuses. Allah Says: ‘Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse’. Nevertheless, what has really contributed to the venom spewed by the West against Islam are the spineless rulers of the Muslim world. Rather than removing money from Western banks or cutting off the oil supplies—which is well within their grasp—they are happy to issue empty words. The only way for Muslims to prevent such vitriolic material is the re-establish the Khilafah. Only the Khilafah can protect the Islamic creed and the honour of the messenger (saw) and his house hold.

Russia ’s takes full advantage of Georgia ’s attack on South Ossetia

Last week, Georgia spurred on by the US attacked South Ossetia in bid to retake the enclave from Russia’s sphere of influence. Russia responded by not only ousting Georgian forces from South Ossetia, but also repositioned its troops in the breakaway region of Abkhazia and bombed major Georgian cities such as Poti, Gori and Tblisi. Russia has taken full advantage of Georgia’s belligerence and continues to spread its influence beyond the separatist regions.
Georgia ’s importance stems from its oil transit routes from the Caspian Sea to the West, as well as its close proximity to Russia . It is because of these factors that America has looked to offer Georgia permanent source of protection. In April 2008, the US advocated NATO membership for Georgia , but the Europeans balked at Russian objections. In July, the US conducted military exercises with Georgian troops and through Israel the Georgian army received weapons and armaments. Again Russia was deeply disturbed and complained vociferously. All of this indicates that irrespective of the ‘shaky’ ceasefire, Russia will not relent, unless America’s influence in Georgia is completely rolled back, and the country once again serves the interests of the Russian bear.

Abdullah’s visit to Iraq is aimed at legitimizing the crusader occupation

On 12/8/2008, King Abdullah of Jordan became the first leader of an Arab nation to visit Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein. Abdullah’s visit is culmination of a flurry of diplomatic activity by Arab states to legitimize America ’s occupation of Iraq . Some have reopened embassies; a few have pledged to uphold Iraq ’s security, whilst others have written off debt. This is in addition to the oil, air bases, water- ways, intelligence and other resources they have provided to America. Indeed! Were it not for these rulers, America would have struggled to avoid defeat. America only survives in Iraq because of its reliance on assets that belong wholly to the Muslim ummah.

Pakistan: All the leaders should be impeached & ejected from office

Recently the Pakistani government in collaboration with the opposition produced a charge sheet highlighting the crimes committed by Musharraf during his nine year tenure in office. The bitter irony here is that leaders pushing for the impeachment are also Pakistan ’s biggest crooks— crimes committed by Zardari and Nawaz are well known and documented. What makes the whole saga even more laughable is that the Zadari and his cronies are imploring the US —the biggest criminal of all— to pressurize Musharraf to step down or give official blessing for his impeachment. The people of Pakistan should not standby and watch this political farce unfold. Rather, they should work to remove all the corrupt leaders and their masters, the Western powers from Pakistan . This can only be achieved through the re-establishment of the Khilafah state which will not only clip the strings of the puppeteers and efface their influence throughout Pakistan , but also punish the puppet rulers who have only caused misery and havoc.

Riots in Kashmir trouble India

On 12/8/2008 the Indian security forces shot dead 12 Muslims in Kashmir. Lately, Kashmir has been gripped by the largest demonstration since the uprising first started in the late eighties. The protests centre on Kashmir’s Muslim population strongly objecting to attempts by the Indian government to give Kashmiri land to Hindu pilgrims. Initially, the Indian government gave in to Muslim demands, but changed its decision when BJP stoked the flames of resentment amongst Hindus. With general elections fast approaching next year, the ruling Congress party is looking to reconnect with disenfranchised Hindu voters and Muslims in Kashmir are paying the price. The problems of Kashmir can only be solved by Muslims in the sub-continent (Pakistan , India and Bangladesh ) who number circa 450million returning the region back to the rule Islam. When Islam ruled sub-continent Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Christians lived in relative harmony.

The slaughter of Muslims in Philippines catches UN’s attention

At last the UN has expressed concerns at the appalling atrocities committed by the Philippines government against its Muslim population in the South. In its report, it noted that 130,000 civilians (Muslims and Christians) have been displaced in the past few days.
But does it really matter. Is anyone listening? For well over a decade now the government has been fighting Muslims whose only crime is that they want autonomy to live under Shariah.
