Forget Daesh: Humanity is at Stake

By Ramzy Baroud | Source: PalestineChronicle I still remember that smug look on his face, followed by the matter-of-fact remarks that had western journalists laugh out loud. “I’m now going to show you a picture of the luckiest man in Iraq,” General Norman Schwarzkopf, known as ‘Stormin’ Norman, said at a press conference sometime in 1991, as he showed a video of US bombs blasting an Iraqi bridge, seconds after the Iraqi driver managed to cross it. But then, a far more unjust invasion and war followed in 2003, following a decade-long siege that cost Iraq a million of its children and its entire economy. It marked the end of sanity and the dissipation Read more ...

From Pol Pot to ISIS: The Blood Never Dried

By John Pilger | Source: PalestineChronicle In transmitting President Richard Nixon’s orders for a “massive” bombing of Cambodia in 1969, Henry Kissinger said, “Anything that flies on everything that moves”.  As Barack Obama wages his seventh war against the Muslim world since he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and Francois Hollande promises a “merciless” attack on that the rubble of Syria, the orchestrated hysteria and lies make one almost nostalgic for Kissinger’s murderous honesty. As a witness to the human consequences of aerial savagery – including the beheading of victims, their parts festooning trees and fields – Read more ...

Inspiration: Islam and Racism

Episode-12 (final episode - Season 1) from the amazing Inspiration Series by Mohamed Zeyara. Islam does not pay attention to differences in colour, race or lineage. All people come from Adam, and Adam was created from dust. In Islam, differentiation between people is based on faith (eemaan) and piety (taqwaa), by doing that which Allah has enjoined and avoiding that which Allah has prohibited. Allah says in the Quran:  "O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allaah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. he is one of Read more ...

Rania Masri Speech: “Mr.Obama, What is Barbaric?”

A speech by Rania Masri, the keynote speaker, during the ‘Texas For Gaza’ protest on August 2, 2014 in Austin Texas.

(Note that the recording missed the first few seconds. She began it by saying that “Yesterday, the Obama administration said that the abduction of the Israeli invading soldier by the Palestinian Resistance was a ‘barbaric act’.”)

 

Extremist US pastor Terry Jones announces plans to burn Quran again

Anti-Islamist Pastor Terry Jones, who was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court in November 2012 for his ties to a film wrongly protaying Muslims that sparked Islamic riots, is planning a mass Quran burning to mark the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11. A press release from his organization "Stand Up America!" states that on Sept. 11, 2013, group members and followers will hold an "International Burning of 2,998 Korans" to send Islam a very clear warning. The 2,998 reportedly represents the number who died during the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. "On September 11th, 2013, to remember those who were murdered by radical Islam, and to send Islam a very Read more ...

Michael Prysner : ‘The Real Terrorist Was Me…’

navedz.com republishes the fragment of one of the most powerful anti-war speeches done by the former Corporal of the US Army in Iraq Michael Prysner at the 2008 Winter Soldier in Maryland. It is still relevant and sounding as ever. By Michael PRYSNER (USA) “I tried hard to be proud of my service, but all I could feel was shame. Racism could no longer mask the reality of the occupation. These were people, these were human beings. I’ve since been plagued by guilt, any time I see an elderly man, like the one who couldn’t walk, who we rolled onto a stretcher, and told the Iraqi police to take him away. I feel guilt any time I see a mother with her Read more ...

Malcolm X’s Letter from Makkah

The following is Malcolm X’s (al-Hajj, Malik al-Shabazz) letter to his assistants in Harlem during his pilgrimage to Makkah in April of 1964: Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this ancient holy land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the holy scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors. I have been blessed to visit the holy city of Makkah; I have made my seven circuits around the Ka'aba, led by a young Mutawwaf Read more ...

Obama’s extraordinary achievement in Iraq

- By Latheef Farook | Ceylon Today | 27, December, 2011  1,455,590 Iraqis killed Two million widows, five million orphans A quarter of the population lives in extreme poverty US President Barack Obama described the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq as “extraordinary achievement” and “mission accomplished”. The reality however, is that the withdrawal is a shameful defeat for America. Obama is leaving behind thousands of armed private US contractors and the potential for violence is real. According to some reports the withdrawal was to clear the Iraqi airspace for Israel to launch a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. The Read more ...

Prayers, taunts and weary resignation in Jerusalem

Source : The Independent - By Robert Fisk | 24-Sept-2011 So there I was, on the Via Dolorosa of course, chatting to a middle-aged guy in a red T-shirt and just a wisp of a beard with a prayer rug under his left arm.And I asked him, of course, what he thought about Barack Obama's speech. He grinned at me like he knew I had already guessed what he was going to say. "What did you expect?" he asked. Correct guess. After all, Haaretz had already referred this week to "President Barack Netanyahu" while the racist Israeli foreign minister said he would sign the speech with both hands. Maybe, I reflected in Jerusalem yesterday, Obama really is seeking Read more ...
