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.
Unless Muslims begin to think outside the Sunni-Shia box, they will remain vulnerable to manipulation by the enemies of Islam as is happening today.
The imperialists and their sidekicks first create a crisis to frighten the Arabian potentates in the Persian Gulf and then come with offers to sell them weapons that the latter cannot use.
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.
The months of August and September highlight two anniversaries: the first, Hizbullah’s valiant resistance to Zionist aggression against Lebanon in 2006 and the second Islamic Iran’s eight year long epic defence of the Islamic State against the combined might of kufr emanating through Ba‘thist Iraq.
The takfiri terrorists, aided and abetted by the Ba‘athist terrorists in Iraq are gradually being driven from areas they occupied a year ago. In recent weeks, several masterminds have also been put out of action. Their end cannot be very far.
If news about the killing of Ezzet Ibrahim al Douri is correct, it would definitely be a big blow to the terrorist operations in Iraq. He was the one who facilitated the alliance between the takfiri terrorists and Ba'athist military personnel.
The The takfiri terrorists have been dealt a severe military and psychological blow. They have been defeated by a combination of Iraqi government forces and Sunni and Shia militias in Takrit, hometown of the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Husain. It appears Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, will be next in a campaign to fold up the Saudi-Zionist-American backed fitnah.
This month marks the seventh anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The invasion was no surprise of course; it was preceded by months of international politicking as the neo-con Bush administration tried to build international consensus for the war...
On September 24 the British government published a "dossier of evidence" against Saddam Hussein that critics quickly dismissed as a "weapon of mass deception". Iraq’s fate was determined by decisions made long ago, argues FAISAL BODI.

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.
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.
The Iraqi Special Tribunal was set up by the occupation authorities last year and lacks even a semblence of independence. Completely funded by Washington, it is advised on every level by a team of at least 50 officials...
The US’s apparent capture of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein on December 13 has enabled the Bush administration to end the year on a rather higher note than they can have expected, particularly after November had proved to be the worst month yet of the US occupation of Iraq...
The tortuous saga of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s inspection of Iran’s nuclear program finally reached a conclusion of sorts on November 25, when it was announced that the powers represented on the body and of the UN Security Council had agreed the text of a new resolution accepting the conclusions of an IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear program...
On April 11, the day after American forces proclaimed the capture of Baghdad and the fall of Saddam Hussain’s regime, Ayatullah al-Uzma Sayyid Ali Khamenei, the Rahbar of the Islamic State of Iran, presented a detailed and broad-ranging analysis of the background and implications of the US’s war on Iraq as the first part of his jum’a khutbah in Tehran. Here we publish an abridged translation of this khutbah.
Washington increased pressure on Syria last month, immediately after the fall of the Ba’athist regime in Baghdad. Although White House sources privately denied that there were any plans for further military action against other regimes in the region
As American and British forces ‘mop up’ the pockets of resistance while ‘cruising’ through Baghdad, the protest and anger generated before and during the war are taking on a new dimension that may not be so easy to deal with as Saddam’s regime...
