The Dangers of Spreading Rumours – Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan

An excellent article on the danger of spreading rumours without verification. The Noble Shaykh al-'Allamah Salih al-Fawzan was asked: What is the dangers of rumours and spreading speech and narrations without deliberation and verification? He answered: It is not permissible to transmit rumours and to spread fear amongst the Muslims and weaken their spirits; this action is from the actions of the hypocrites who spread rumours amongst the Muslims in order to impede them and set them back, and to bring about fear in their hearts. So this is from the actions of the hypocrites, and Allaah (Tabaraka wa ta'ala) says, "O you who believe! If a rebellious 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 Terrorism

Episode-9 from the amazing Inspiration Series by Mohamed Zeyara. Islam is a peaceful religion because Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, has called Himself as-Salaam (the One Free from all defects; this word also means ‘peace’), and Islam is His religion that He has approved of for mankind. Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “He is Allah than Whom there is La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He) the King, the Holy, the One Free from all defects, the Giver of security, the Watcher over His creatures, the All-Mighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah! (High is Read more ...

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

Israeli Deceptions Revealed in Story of ‘Kidnapped’ Soldier

By Jonathan Cook – Nazareth | Source: PalestineChronicle A single incident at the weekend – the reported capture by Hamas on Friday of an Israeli soldier through a tunnel – illustrated in stark fashion the layers of deception Israel has successfully cast over its attack on Gaza. On Sunday, as the army indicated it would start limited withdrawals, Israel claimed Hadar Goldin was dead, possibly buried in a collapsed tunnel as Israel bombarded the area in which he was seized. His family said he was being left behind. Israeli officials or media did not view Hamas’ operation dispassionately. Goldin was not “captured” but “kidnapped” Read more ...

When Reporting Becomes a Weapon of Mass Deception

By: Dr. Mosheer Amer – Gaza | Source: PalestineChronicle Mainstream media pursues reporting that is antithetical to the promise of ethical journalism and contributes in prolonging the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. “I want to apologize now and tonight for my error on the broadcast Tuesday. We’ll correct it tonight on [ABC]”, said a tweet from America’s ABC News Diane Sawyer on 10 July after she falsely misreported the scene of the aftermath of an Israeli air raid on Palestinians in Gaza as destruction caused by Palestinian rockets. Whether Sawyer’s misreporting of events on the ground is a case of gratuitous ignorance or willful omission, Read more ...

The Whitewashing of Ariel Sharon

Source : PalestineChronicle | By Ramzy Baroud The death of former Israeli leader Ariel Sharon enlivened US media’s interest in the legacy of a man considered by many a war criminal, and by some a hero. In fact, the supposed heroism of Sharon was at the heart of CNN coverage of his death on January 11. Sharon spent his last eight years in a coma, but apparently not long enough for US corporate media to wake up from its own moral coma. CNN online’s coverage presented Sharon as a man of heroic stature, who was forced to make tough choices for the sake of his own people. “Throughout, he was called ‘The Bulldozer’, a fearless leader who got things Read more ...

Israel’s Enduring Fantasy

Breaking Gaza's Will: Israel’s Enduring Fantasy - By RAMZY BAROUD 22th of January 2009 My three-year-old son Sammy walked into my room uninvited as I sorted through another batch of fresh photos from Gaza.I was looking for a specific image, one that would humanise Palestinians as living, breathing human beings, neither masked nor mutilated. But to no avail. All the photos I received spoke of the reality that is Gaza today - homes, schools and civilian infrastructure bombed beyond description. All the faces were either of dead or dying people. I paused as I reached a horrifying photo in the slideshow of a young boy and his sister huddled Read more ...

Globalization Unchecked!!

Globalization Unchecked : How Alien Media is Suffocating Real Culture - By  RAMZY BAROUD Source : www.ramzybaroud.net A Muslim family sits across of me in cafe, in a largely Muslim Asia country. An older woman shyly hunches over and desperately trying to avoid eye contact with the giant plasma screen TV, blazing loud music on the popular music video channel, MTV. The scantily dressed presenter introduces her ‘top song’ for the week. Beyonce, dressed in so very little, annoyingly reiterates that she is “a single lady.” The old woman’s son is mesmerized by what he sees. He pays no attention to his mother, young wife or even his own son who wreaks Read more ...

The Arabs’ feelings of love and hate for Saddam Hussein

The Arabs’ feelings of love and hate for Saddam Hussein BY RAMZY BAROUD 20 January 2007 AMID the anticipation and strange secrecy regarding the day of Saddam Hussein’s execution, images of his lifeless body after his hanging flooded Internet, the world media seemingly and conveniently forgot the tenants of international law regarding such images. Even such photos plagued my screen on Al-Jazeera that morning. Later, scenes of Iraqi Shia groups firing guns and dancing in the street presented a sensational image similar to the staged collapse of Saddam’s statue in Baghdad years before. Something seemed terribly wrong in this so-called act of justice. I Read more ...
