Following Saudi crown prince Muhammad bin Salman’s announcement that the medieval kingdom would henceforth follow “moderate” Islam, a number of other policies have come to light.
There is a long list of places where Muslims are suffering. Whether in Palestine or Yemen, the Rohingya or the Kashmiris, the list is endless.
Western culture tends to produce narcissists and exhibitionists. Unfortunately some converts to Islam bring this disease with them.
Our surroundings influence our thinking and shape our conduct. That is why it is said, one is known by the company he keeps.
Bani Saud’s actions are totally bizarre. From mass arrests of leading figures in the Kingdom to threats against Islamic Iran and Hizbullah, they clearly show that Muhammad bin Salman has lost his marbles. This would be laughable but for the fact that these moves affect people not only in the region but also beyond it.
I am a long-time subscriber of CI. Not only do I get information and analysis virtually absent from the mainstream media but I am also a strong admirer of your call for Muslim unity.
The global power balance is changing rapidly. The unipolar world is dead; America can no longer dictate to the world. America can cause massive destruction but it has lost the ability to attract people.
The Rohingyas’ suffering is heartbreaking. In the absence of concerted international action, the Myanmar regime has gotten away with ethnic cleansing and genocide.
The Rohingya Muslims join a long list of other people suffering oppression and genocide. Their plight is made worse by the fact that there is little to be gained politically by offering them support. The world, including many in the Muslim world, have become cynical.
The resistance front in the Muslim East has won — and won convincingly. This has important implications for the region.
The people of Arabia are governed by fear, a dull fear that seeps into every crack and crevice of daily life and makes one think twice about saying or doing anything to overturn the bad situation. One wrong move and one could end up in prison or worse.
The takfiri terrorists are on the run in Syria and Iraq. This is good news. It would, however, be wrong to assume that this fitnah has been eliminated.
Contrary to its self-projected image of a “nonviolent” country, India under Narendra Modi is a textbook example of a terrorist state. No religious minority is safe in India. Muslims top the list of those targeted by Hindu fascists.
The people of Saudi Arabia are not sheep and Bani Saud should stop treating them as such. There are good and bad people in Saudi Arabia, as everywhere else, but it has now become crystal clear that the vast majority of people in the Arabian Peninsula are fed up with the excesses and treachery of Bani Saud.
The plight of the Rohingya Muslims once again highlights two points: the sad state of the Muslim Ummah and the failure of Muslim nation-states to safeguard the interests of Muslims.
As the last and final communication to all humanity from our Rabb (Lord and Sustainer), Allah (swt), the Qur’an needs to be properly understood for us to implement it. The Ascendant Qur’an: Realigning Man to the Divine Power Culture is a highly recommended tafsir of the 21st century and beyond.
The Muslims’ victory in al-Quds for al-Masjid al-Aqsa gives cause for celebration. It was not achieved by the pathetic Palestinian (non)Authority, the agents of Zionism. Nor was any Arabian regime involved. They hardly have time to raise their heads from sajdah to their true god — Zionism.
Cracks have appeared in Bani Saud’s façade of unity. While the aged King Salman may have elevated his favorite son Muhammad bin Salman to be the crown prince, other princes have not taken this well.
Watching Donald Trump’s recent press conference created the impression that he was a street thug rather than president of the United States.
Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s ‘clown’ prince destroys everything he touches. He will likely destroy the medieval kingdom as well.
