Zafar Bangash

Muharram 13, 14422020-09-01

September 22, 2020 will mark 40 years of the Iraqi-imposed war on Iran. Iraq had the backing of the entire world while Islamic Iran defended itself alone. After eight years of valiant resistance, the self-sacrificing people of Iran saved the revolution by defeating the international conspiracy.

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.

Saddam Hussain: from moderate to monster to martyr

Crescent International

Muharram 13, 14282007-02-01

Transforming Saddam Hussain from a monster to a martyr might seem an impossible feat; but that is what the Iraqi authorities have achieved by bungling his execution so appallingly. The haste with which the hanging was carried out on the day some Muslims were celebrating Eid al-Adha, the insulting taunts to which he was subjected, and Saddam’s composure just before his execution, captured on a cell phone and seen globally on the internet, have all turned one of the vilest creatures of the last century into a martyr for millions of people around the world.

Sectarian implications of the mis-trial of Saddam Hussain

Abu Dharr

Muharram 13, 14282007-02-01

It should have been “justice done” by Muslims but it has been turned into “the rise of sectarianism” by the zionist-imperialist masters of the world. Saddam Hussain was used by his imperialist handlers as an agent par excellence during his bloody life, exploited further in his gory death.
