Last month there were several incidents in the Persian Gulf that have raised fears of a shooting war between Iran and the US and its sidekick Britain. The rogue regimes in Washington and London are playing with fire.
Sectarianism is not a one-way street. There are Sunni sectarians and there are Shi‘i sectarians. Both responsible for creating divisions by remaining entrenched in their rigid positions ignoring the other’s perspective.
If there is one consistent Zionist policy it is the genocide of Palestinians. They spare no one: men, women or children. The fact that such crimes are seldom reported mean few people are even aware of such horrors.
India is not a democracy; it is a cesspool of Hindu extremism on a rampage to obliterate minorities. Muslims are their principal target.
The zio-imperialists’ last line of defence against Muslim self-determination: Wahhabi Arabia that is a veritable hate factory pitting Muslims against one another. Even the noble sanctuary in Makkah has been corrupted for this nefarious campaign.

While Western regimes have been harping on the threat of “Muslim terrorists”, the real terrorists—white supremacist groups—have been flourished and operated right in their midst. The deadly attacks of these groups are there for all to see.
Whether they know it or not, both the Salafis and Sufis are being used by the intelligence agencies of Western countries against the interests of Islam.
Instead of looking at the symptoms, the root cause of deficit, whether in trade or other areas, must be understood. It is riba (usury) that is responsible for the misery of people. All scriptures prohibit it but vulture capitalists thrive on it.
If Indian rulers still do not understand why the Kashmiris hate them so intensely, perhaps the Pulwama attack should send a powerful message. The Kashmiris want the Indian off their backs.
