The sons of Saud: the scions of Zion

Abu Dharr

Rabi' al-Thani 03, 14382017-01-01

The clannish rulers of Arabia have abandoned the values of Islam and reverted back to the days of Jahiliyah before Islam. Instead of being slaves of Allah, they are slaves of the Shaytan.

US elections and media circus

Zafar Bangash

Safar 01, 14382016-11-01

One of the remarkable aspects of the American system is that people actually believe they have a say in how their president is elected. The media plays its role in pushing the establishment’s agenda to perpetuate the myth.

Editor

Shawwal 27, 14372016-08-01

The people of Libya have suffered for more than five years since the Western Crusaders destroyed the regime of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. His son, Seif al-Islam who was sentenced to death last year is now seen as a savior of Libya.

‘Liberated’ Libya a veritable hellhole for people

Waseem Shehzad

Shawwal 04, 14352014-08-01

Western regimes that trumpeted the ‘liberation’ of Libya with so much fanfare are now silent as rival militias, former military officers and others battle it out for control. The country is so dangerous that most western diplomats have fled.

Libya’s ‘elections’ fail to attract voters

Editor

Jumada' al-Akhirah 01, 14352014-07-01

Parliamentary elections were held in Libya on June 25 but few people bothered to cast ballot. They had more weighty things on their mind: the growing security problem, lack of food and fuel and total chaos that has gripped the country since the US-Nato alliance “liberated” it from the clutches of Colonel Qaddafi.

Libya destroyed beyond repair

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 27, 14342013-11-01

Following its “liberation” by the West, Libya has descended into absolute chaos. To the grim reality of life for people must now be added the distinct possibility of Libya breaking up along tribal lines.

Libya’s traumatized people pine for Qaddafi

Yusuf Dhia-Allah

Shawwal 24, 14342013-09-01

The hoax perpetrated by the West promising democracy to the people of Libya if they got rid of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi lies smouldering in the ruins of burned out homes, schools and hospitals. Libya is a country in the grip of armed militias answerable to no one. The government does not exist even in name.

Preventing peaceful end to Syrian conflict part of US-Zionist agenda

Tahir Mustafa

Jumada' al-Ula' 09, 14332012-04-01

Civilian suffering, especially that of children, always arouses deep concern among Muslims, indeed all people. Human suffering of any kind should concern people everywhere and they should help end this tragic situation as quickly as possible. It is, however, at the larger level that there is much confusion and misunderstanding about what is really afoot in Syria.

Dhu al-Hijjah 05, 14322011-11-01

The West has gotten rid of another pesky dictator with the execution-style killing of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi on 10-20-2011 in Sirte. There was much jubilation in Western capitals as news of Qaddafi’s killing spread.

Shawwal 03, 14322011-09-01

In the grand old days of colonialism, European nations used all sorts of elaborate excuses for occupying the fabulously wealthy territories of Africa and Asia. Rudyard Kipling called it the “white man’s burden” to transmit (European) culture and civilization to the unwashed natives.

Yusuf Dhia-Allah

Ramadan 01, 14322011-08-01

Successive US regimes have claimed that al-Qaeda is their enemy number one and that no effort would be spared in costs or human lives to eliminate it. Does empirical evidence support this claim? Let us examine the facts.

Reasons behind the West’s attack on Libya

Crescent International

Rajab 29, 14322011-07-01

Colonel Muammar Qaddafi is an easy figure to hate. Given his eccentric behaviour, he is the butt of many jokes that are easily conflated into hate against the man and his policies. Qaddafi need not be our favourite tyrant but the West’s attack on his regime as well as the country’s infrastructure is not motivated by the desire to rescue the Libyan people.

A new Western crusade: this time against Libya

Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Thani 27, 14322011-04-01

The West’s attack on Libya is yet another crusade launched against a Muslim country on the pretext of protecting its people. Pope Urban II would be pleased to learn that his disciples are still marching on as good “Christian soldiers” against another group of “heathens” in the Muslim world nearly a thousand years after his sermon on Mount Clermont.
