Using the garb of Sufism, the self-styled religious preacher, Fethullah Gulen has turned out to be a US-Zionist puppet who is prepared to advance their agenda. This is how the enemies of Islam operate.2
Britons voted to leave the European Union. Coupled with Turkey’s failed coup, it has changed the global situation radically. There will now be new political realignments in the region.1
Last month’s failed coup attempt in Turkey has exposed the alternate State that exists in the shadows. It has shown how deeply unsavory characters have penetrated the various institutions of state.1
Recep Tayip Erdogan has had to eat crow and is trying to ingratiate himself to the Zionists once again as he continues with his destructive policy of destabilizing the Muslim East undermining Islamic self-determination.
Zionist Israel occupied the Golan Heights from Syria and other lands from Egypt and Jordan during the June 1967 War. That defeat of the Arabian armies puffed up the Zionists so much that they have started to usurped various parts of these territories. The Zionists' latest outrageous claim came today when Benjamin Netanyahu claimed the Syrian Golan Heights will remain "forever" part of Israel. It truly takes chutzpah!
Statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyu that Arabian rulers are keen to cultivate relations with the Zionist regime point to the fact that something big is about to happen. Netanyahu is one of most obnoxious rulers the Zionist State has ever had. The Arabian rulers led by the Bani Saud are about to embrace this man and his racist ideology.

They stubbornly refuse to life the illegal siege where people are being slowly strangled to death. The Palestinians demand an end to the siege. Egyptian-brokered negotiations collapsed over the zionists' refusal to lift the siege ending the 72-hour cease-fire.

In June 2005, the Islamic Human Rights Commission and NEDA convened a conference of academics, theologians and practitioners entitled ‘Towards a New Liberation Theology: Reflections on Palestine’ the papers submitted for which form the content of this book. The conference was intended to be the first in a series of events and books exploring the relationship between the practical experiences of those living through events in various world flashpoints, their faith affiliations and aspirations and the possibilities of effecting justice through their goals rather than the imposition of ‘peace’ at any price and without any relevance to those it would most affect. Put more simply, this is an exercise in realizing the potential that religion has in resolving conflicts that have been irresolvable through secular initiatives.1
Interfaith dialogue has become fashionable these days. The dialogue bug has spread so far and wide that even the reclusive king of Saudi Arabia Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has been infected by it. He has become some kind of an expert on peace and interfaith dialogue holding one almost every month.
The last Friday of Ramadan each year is marked around the world as Yaum al-Quds: the Day of al-Quds. This tradition was begun by Imam Khomeini r.a. shortly after the Islamic Revolution in Iran, as an annual affirmation of the Ummah’s solidarity with the Muslims of Palestine in their struggle for the liberation of al-Quds .

The campaign is being led by Israel, whose politicians have openly threatened military action against Iran if the UN agencies fail to pressurise it into stopping its nuclear programme.
With their zeal, courage and discipline, Hizbullah's intrepid fighters stood off Israel's military juggernaut in the hilly, forested landscape of southernLebanon.

A month of Israeli attacks on Palestinian targets in Ghazzah and the West Bank, killing over 40 Palestinians, mostly civilians, culminated with Israeli troops moving into southern Ghazzah on June 28, as Crescent was going to press.
