Sha'ban 21,1430/ August 13, 2009, # 39
From Imam Badi Ali:
Spotlight #1: Authentic hadith teach us to remove harmful things from
the path of people. Cleaning the masjid, inside and out, is part of
worship. Living in America, we must take care not to be careless and
irresponsible. Don't litter, don't obstruct, don't leave a mess. A
Muslim should be known for caring, compassion and cleanliness.
Spotlight #2: America's government is carrying out a "Stick and Carrot"
policy. The stick is for Muslims who stand up their rights, for the
oppressed, the downtrodden, the poor, the vulnerable. The carrot is for
Zionists, the rich, the powerful, the exploiters, the oppressors, the
filthy rich, the spoilt.
Outreach: Juma Khutba in Chicago: 8.7.09
Islam integrates Belief, social reform, worship & Jihad.
Muslims have fragmented Islam:Let's Seek Forgiveness from Allah.
Chicago, August 7, 09: This time the juma' audience consisted of
scientists, technocrats and technicians from various Muslim countries.
Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the khutba and led the prayers. Here are the
points of his khutba. Inshallah, other khateebs will pick up these points.
One who breaks up this integral vision of Islam may be legally a Muslim
but is not following Islam as taught by the Prophet, pbuh. So faith and
charitable activities are only fragments of Islam. We Muslims have
ignored the freeing of slaves and perseverance in standing up against
First part of the Khutba: 2:177. Al-Birr is the comprehensive concept
of Goodness and righteous existence. The verse starts by telling us
that the mere forms of prayer do not constitute the totality of Goodness.
Goodness includes faith.
It includes social reform and charitable activity.
It includes an openminded worldview attained through travel.
It includes the freeing of slaves.
A system based on trust and compassion on the foundations of prayer and
the giving of whatever one has.
Perseverance during times of Jihad.
Patience during suffering and disease.
Part 2 of Khutba: America's Mass Culture is in direct conflict with Islam.
May Allah forgive our sins and shortcomings.
Most Americans are unable to follow the light of their conscience and
faith. They are affected, from coast to coast, by the mass culture
coming out of TV, Hollywood, Wall Street, Madison Avenue ....
Muslims' have no future as Muslims if they do not understand mass
culture and do not oppose it.
Look at what happened to Christianity and Judaism owing to mass culture.
They cannot stop fornication, adultery and homosexuality: in fact
sometimes support for these evils comes out of their places of worship.
Owing to mass culture, Americans are easily persuaded to support war,
be it against Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia or Pakistan.
Living in America does not mean that Muslims have to accept the fake
pluralism of America. There is no pluralism here. Instead Muslims and
all Americans are pressured to support a culture in which even God has
been secularized. If we accept America's mindset, we will be deIslamized.
Our Hereafter will be destroyed.
Study the Qur'an. Give role models to our children from the heroes and
heroines of Islam, from the Prophet, pbuh, and the Sahaba.The Sunnah
Remember that Islam will be victorious. The forces of Islam defeated the
USSR. Now the Islamic resistance is embattled with the only remaining
worldly superpower. There was a time that Muslims used to almost worship
imperial Britain. Those times are over when worldly power scared the
followers of Islam.
Sura 2 verse 177: "It is not righteousness that you turn your faces
towards the East and the West, but righteousness is that one should
believe in Allah and the last day and the angels and the Book and the
prophets, and give away wealth out of love for Him to the near of kin
and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and those who ask,
and for (the emancipation of) the captives, and keep up prayer
and pay the zakat; and the performers of their promise when they make a
promise, and the patient in distress and affliction and in time of
conflicts-- these are they who are true (to themselves) and these are
they who guard (against evil).

Pak-U.S. Disinformation on Baitullah Mehsud a Total Flop: Wife's
Murder Ignored: Attempt to Kill Islamic Leaders
On August 6, New Trend reported the US drone attack which killed Pak
Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud's wife on August 5. The Pakistani
military regime tried to use the drone attack to carry out an intense
disinformation campaign which continued till August 10 and ended in a
serious lack of credibility for the Pak regime. The Pak regime's main
points were as follows:
This propaganda swept Pakistani media and was repeated by Zionist media
in America. Even reasonable sources of information like al-Jazeera and
daily Jasarat [Urdu language] repeated the Pak regime's story.
Baitullah was killed in the US drone attack.
Taliban will hold a shoora meeting to decide on a new leader.
The shoora meeting was held and the contenders for leadership,
Hakeemullah Mehsud and Wali-ur-Rahman exchanged hot words and then
exchanged gunfire. One was killed and the other wounded.
For good measure, both were killed.
Finally on August 10, Hakeemullah and Wali Rahman jointly talked to the
media by phone. They pointed out that both were alive and well, there
were no differences between them, there was no shootout and most
importantly, Baitullah is very much alive.
New Trend's sources say that this was a joint ploy by the US and the
Pak toadies of the US to get Baitullah to "surface" and give US drones
an opportunity to kill him.
The Pak military earlier tried this game in Swat when it claimed that
Maulvi Fazlullah, Muslim Khan and the entire Islamic resistance
leadership had been killed by Pak military. The story proved to be
false when Muslim Khan called the media and played the latest message
from Fazlullah [known as the lion of Swat].
Retired Pakistani military men have set up blogs of their own and
regularly distribute General Kayani's stories and their own

In Spite of Arab Rulers, Arab Masses want to Liberate Palestine
The Legacy of President Saddam Hussain [Shaheed]
by Ziad Shaker elJishi [Eyewitness Account.]
Special to al-Moharer
I have just returned from a visit to the Arab homeland, during which I
was able to see Dubai (UAE) and Sanaa (Yemen) in the Arab Gulf, as well
as Tunisia and Algeria in the Arab Maghreb (West). I set out to observe
two things: the current political and economic status of the countries
I visited and the level of Arab nationalist consciousness present in
the four countries on the eastern and western wings of the Arab homeland.
I don't think I would be exaggerating in saying that the commitment of
the Arab masses towards the cause of liberation in Palestine was
markedly present and more steadfast than ever. It is no exaggeration to
say that 2 million Arab fighters ready to march to Palestine could be
assembled on very short notice.
The level of anger and renewed commitment towards Palestine became a
polarizing and unifying factor in the rallies that took place during
the massacre the Jewish entity committed in Gaza last December and had
a significant mobilizing effect on the Arab masses. One million people
readily assembled in Yemen alone to show their support for Palestine
and to pour their anger onto the Jews.
In Yemen and Algeria wall graffiti was still present in abundance with
inscriptions such as "We Are With Gaza", "Gaza We Are Coming", "We Are
All Gaza" and "Death to the Jews". Wall writings expressing popular
opinion in support of Gaza could still be read in the streets of Sanaa
and Wahran, Algeria. Certainly hatred has not diminished against the
Jewish state, which managed not only to increase the level of hatred
Arabs hold for its illegitimate existence but has also created a new
movement and renewed Arab conviction to liberate Palestine by force of
arms, shedding any illusions for a negotiated settlement the
imperialists and Arab reactionary forces have sought to peddle.
Wahran, Algeria: Caption reads "Long live Algeria, We are with Gaza,
Death to the Jews."
In Tunis and Algeria the demonstrations for Gaza were paralyzing and
were able to shut down whole cities. In Algeria and in the city of
Wahran the government clashed with demonstrators and violently beat
them. The common explanation offered to explain the violent reaction of
the Arab regimes was that their internal security was at stake and
Clearly we can see that the Arab regimes under direction of the US are
an accomplice in ensuring that 2 million Arabs do not in fact march on
and liberate Palestine. Manpower is not a problem to the Arabs, nor is
basic armament, but it is the lack of will on behalf of the Arab
regimes that stands as the real obstacle.
It became clear to me that the current status quo of economic
retardation and political repression, especially with regards to
fulfilling the twin causes of the Arab nation in Palestine and Iraq,
were the consequence of the active participation of the Arab regimes in
conspiring against the cause of liberating Palestine and the
anti-occupation resistance in Iraq.
The events in Gaza and the cause of Palestine in general are a source
of real worry for the Arab regimes and present a serious danger to their
continued rule. The popular mobilizations for Gaza posed a direct threat
towards them and a source of great worry because they threaten to topple
the ruling elite and as a result the regimes have no choice but to
confront them with force, as was demonstrated in Algeria.
This also supports the statement we have been educated on by Arab
nationalists since the 1940s: that Palestine is the true vanguard of
the over-all Arab revolution and the thrust for positive change to be
achieved all over the Arab nation. It is no wonder that the Arab cause
in Palestine was and still is the rallying call of the Arab Ba'ath
Socialist Party, of President Saddam Hussein and of all earnest
nationalists and revolutionaries of the Arab nation. In short the
emancipation of Palestine and the emancipation of the Arab nation are
intertwined and coterminous in the struggle to free the Arabs in the
length and breadth of their homeland, from the Atlantic Ocean to the
The level of Arab consciousness was clearly present in Sanaa (Yemen) and
manifested itself in the Yemeni people's raised awareness of the example
set by the sacrifices of President Saddam Hussein. The Souk in Sanaa
still had on display one of the posters commemorating the great
president in sure testament to the heroic proportions President Saddam
has achieved across the Arab nation and as tribute to the tenacious
fight he conducted against the imperialist invaders and for the cause
of unifying the Arab nation.
Poster of President Saddam in Sanaa Souk
As a result of the conspiracy the media has conducted against the Iraqi
resistance, a conspiracy of imposed silence unprecedented in history in
ignoring and denying the existence of a strong and dominant emerging
liberation force against occupation of its homeland, many people around
the world are utterly ignorant of the national liberation struggle
raging there. In the Arab Maghreb it was clear to me that people did
not know about the General Command for Jihad and Liberation led by his
Excellency al-Mujahid Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri that is now leading the
Iraqi resistance against the American occupation and its puppet
government and marching steadfastly to victory in Iraq.
In fact the official Arab news-media outlets have been careful in
parroting almost verbatim American media coverage of Iraq. As a result
there exists mass ignorance in the public sphere as to the great
achievements the Iraqi resistance has been achieving on the ground.
There is even an Arab media blackout on the casualty figures sustained
by the Americans.
It was my general observation in the Arab Gulf and the Arab Maghreb
that most people did not know who Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri was or if they
knew who he was weren't sure if he was alive or not. There is an
amazing lack of information among the Arab masses, especially with
regards to the Iraqi resistance.
To give another example, when the latest stories leaked out by Farouq
Al-Qaddoumi pertaining to the activities of the American puppet Mahmoud
Abbas (Abu Mazen), particularly describing his role in the murder of
Yasser Arafat, the Arab regimes almost immediately came out to support
Abu Mazen. The Tunisian newspaper Al-Sabah immediately ran an article
written by Palestinian Hanna Siniora defending Abu Mazen and accusing
Al-Qaddoumi of fraud.
The Arab regimes are blatantly directed by American intelligence in
their media coverage but also clearly have a vested interest and a
particular weakness in not reporting anything which exposes the
treachery of Abu Mazen or contradicts the official media coverage of
the situation in Iraq, as well as anything that might hurt America's
image or that of the puppet Arab regimes.
People in Algeria actually are confused about who the so-called
President of Palestine was. They don't know if it is Abu Mazen or the
Hamas government in Gaza. I was asked a few times about that situation
and also about who the true representative of the Palestinians was. A
Taxi driver even asked me about the Zionist-spread lie that the
Palestinians willingly sold their own land! This level of ignorance is
purposefully perpetuated by the official Arab regime news broadcasts.
Another source of confusion concerned Iran and "Hizbullah". Most of the
Arabs in the Maghreb saw salvage and hope in Hassan Nasrallah's
proclamations for attacking “Israel” and defeating its army in south
Lebanon in the July war against “Israel”. Many seemed to hold high hopes
for the liberation of Palestine through the agency of this sectarian
pro-Iran outfit. Clearly they have no information on the devastating
role "Hizbullah" and Iran play in the destruction of Iraq, the murder
of President Saddam and the spreading of sectarianism with the
death-squad killings of tens of thousands of Iraqis from all ethnic and
religious backgrounds. Slowly but surely these facts will be brought to
light in the Arab Maghreb, especially in light of the suspicious
activities the Iranian regime is undertaking in spreading Shiia Safavid
teachings in the Arab Maghreb, something that has intensified and has
been taken notice of in Morocco, which expelled some Iranians; in
Algeria, which is struggling with Iranian support of terrorist activities
inside that country; and with the activities of the Hawtheyeen movement
The retarded economic system being fostered in the region is
characterized by a rising level of poverty and increased corruption of
the Arab regimes all over the Arab homeland. In Yemen under-development
and lack of basic infrastructure and services has only been superseded
in importance by lack of stability and security. Foreign conspiracies
against Yemen in seeking to divide the country into north and south
again are being escalated and renewed and the Iranian sabotage of the
security of Yemen has been marked by the infiltration through the
Hawthi movement and the new effort by the Iranian regime to spread
their sectarian version of "Safavid Shiism" in the Arab countries.
Iranian cultural centers set up by the Iranian government and their
embassies are active in the Arab world, recruiting Arabs to the
distorted and divisive doctrines of the Mullahs of Iran.
Tribalism and lack of civil order still present fundamental challenges
to the Yemeni government's efforts to gain stability and security and
maintain its integrity in the northern and southern parts of the
In Tunis the effects of repressive rule alongside devastating bourgeois
capitalist policies has driven most Tunisian youth to seek immigration
outside of their country in an effort to secure life opportunities in
employment and economic security. The level of unemployment is high and
the effects on the poorest of Tunisians are devastating, as they try
desperately to find money to feed themselves.
The rule of the once army general from Soussa, Zein el-Abdine Bin Ali,
has a firm terrorizing grip on the Tunisian people and their daily
lives. Political dissent is harshly punished and, as one Tunisian
remarked to me, one in every ten Tunisians is a police operative in a
country of 9 million. In essence there is one Tunisian spying on nine
others and reporting their political opinions, especially those
critical of the regime.
Socially speaking the Tunisian society has a true identity crisis as
its Arab and Islamic identity has been assaulted by an Ataturk-style
secular government that is pro-Western in its understanding of
modernization and deeply hostile to the Arab identity and Islamic
traditions of the Tunisian people. Tunisians are made to think that the
closer they mimic Western values and conduct, the more modernized and
civilized they become. As a result the average Tunisian youth is lost
to his or her Arab and Islamic identity, culture, and language. We see
this typically in the Arab countries still heavily affected by the
colonialist legacies of England and France, with similarities in this
lack of Arab cultural identity in such places as Dubai, Lebanon
Manifestations of this cultural dislocation in Tunis show themselves in
the system's hostility towards the wearing of the Islamic Hijab for
Tunisian women, even though I saw more and more Tunisian women wear the
Hijab in the street in defiance of this official government position. I
noticed as well the proliferation of Western attire, especially
revealing attire worn by most of the younger generation of Tunisian
women. You could almost mistake the streets at times to be in a
European city and not an Arab one. In certain cases and in some tourist
areas, topless bathers from Europe are allowed to expose their wares in
public beaches, something rarely seen in other Arab countries and hardly
seen even in the USA itself!
The country during the July tourism month gives foreigners a carte
blanche in conducting themselves as they see fit, with total disregard
as to how repugnant this is to average Tunisian families who are
offended by this thrust of unabridged European liberalism and spread of
In fact Tunisian youth are encouraged to "date", contrary to Arab
and Islamic traditions. The newspapers in Tunis frequently
report stories on drug abuse, prostitution and the spread of pornography,
all punished by law amongst Tunisian youth. There is an obvious
correlation between the spread of these social vices and the government's
policies on tourism, political repression, and deteriorating economic
conditions, foremost the rampant unemployment among the growing
population of young people.
Another important phenomenon unusual in the Arab homeland is the spread
of alcoholism and the encouragement of drinking and abuse of alcohol
with liberal policies the government pursues in the sale and promotion
of alcohol. This is a phenomenon deeply antagonistic to the restrictive
laws afforded by Arab and Islamic traditions in other Arab countries
with regards to the consumption, sale, and proliferation of alcohol.
By contrast there are no alcohol outlets in plain public view in Sanaa,
Yemen, whereas Tunis has public bars and alcohol super-markets easily
accessible to the public. As one Tunisian remarked to me, the spread of
alcoholism is so widespread that if you give a 15 year old Tunisian
youth money he is likely to immediately purchase alcohol with it.
Algeria with its socialist economic and political system is
diametrically opposed (at least in theory) to the free market policies
of Tunisia. In Algeria the problems are of a devastated socialist
system that is slowly edging itself towards liberalization of
Four decades and more of Soviet-style socialism have all but destroyed
the country economically and socially. Slowly the private sector is
being allowed to emerge under the direction and strict control of the
ruling army generals. If allowed to spread unabated and in the Western
manner, this will surely ruin the country even further.
Infrastructural projects are clearly in abundance as the country needs
new buildings, factories and roads. These construction projects have
been largely given to the Chinese, who are visibly present in Algeria
in large numbers. One of the fundamental problems Algeria faces is the
lack of a trained labor force.
It is truly amazing that after four decades of what is termed socialist
construction no Algerian workforce is present either in quantity or
quality. It is difficult to find reliable workers to fill job vacancies,
which in turn necessitates the importation of both Chinese workers and
engineers to complete projects in the increasingly visible construction
sector. Most large projects such as the new hospital, large apartment
complexes and the new University City had to be built by the Chinese,
while the metro currently being built in Wahran is being done by a
The government has failed through its educational system in ensuring
jobs to its own engineering graduates and has not prepared the country
with a qualified working class labor force. Most Algerians who complain
about lack of jobs do not show up to work nor are willing to put up with
the long hours and hard work when work opportunities present themselves.
The country suffers socially from drug abuse, which makes its way from
Morocco in the hashish trade and generally suffers from corruption and
a stifling bureaucracy. The general feeling of the public in the street
is of despair, social disarray and lack of security. The army and police
presence is heavy but theft, violence and lack of general order are
common manifestations the visitor observes while in Algeria.
A country with tremendous natural beauty and resources (natural gas,
agriculture, tourism, ports, minerals) should not suffer from lack of
basic services and infrastructure and should not exhibit poverty,
accumulating mounds of garbage, growing numbers of homeless people
Water and electricity have finally reached the second largest city of
Algeria. Until recently, Wahran did not have running water and
electricity on a regular basis. Today the average Algerian family can
not afford to purchase air-conditioning and to have a car and most
graduates from high school can not find employment by the government
and have to instead either seek illegal employment in the black market
or seek illegal immigration to Europe. High school dropouts are also a
regular feature of the educational system.
The devastating effects of 130 years of colonialist French barbaric
rule are strongly felt in the Arab cultural identity crisis the
Algerian people are still struggling with. On the other hand and with
some good genuine effort, Algeria is actively seeking to bolster its
Arab and Islamic culture and especially attempting to Arabize its
educational system and move away from French instruction especially in
the non-scientific sectors.
A new generation of Algerian children are coming out of school without
a strong command of the Arabic language and with a deteriorating
knowledge of foreign languages, especially English. There is also a
lack of practice of proper Arabic form in the daily use of the language
in the people's everyday life, as they would rather use so-called
Algerian Darja language, a factor in hindering literacy in the
implementation and application of Arabic.
In conclusion it is easy to make the case in the Arab countries I
visited that a true Arab solution that ensures the Arab renaissance
(Nahda) is present in the example that president Saddam Hussein has
shown in his Iraqi model for a socialist developing Arab state that is
both organically Arab and successful economically.
Iraq under the guidance of the Arab Ba'ath Socialist Party and the
leadership of President Saddam Hussein can clearly present a solution
to the Arab nations of what socialism, development, and cultural
awakening mean. During the years of Saddam Hussein's rule all the
objectives of liberty, unity, and socialism began to be attained and in
the wake of the martyrdom of president Saddam in 2006 are now being
studied in depth by the Arab masses, especially the youth who are
flocking to the Ba'ath in ever-greater numbers. The search for a viable
solution to the crisis confronting the Arab nation from the Arabian
Gulf to the Atlantic Ocean is resulting in a resurgence of the Ba'ath,
the only movement to consistently, cogently and effectively address the
Arab predicament over the past century.
President Saddam's formula was simple. Nationalize the economy through
state ownership, especially the rich resources Iraq has of oil. Take
the revenues of the oil and build the country emphasizing a high quality
of life for the Iraqi people.
Oil revenues were used in two ways. One was to build a superior health,
educational, and industrial infrastructure and to modernize the country,
and the other was to use the surplus revenue to raise the level of
standard of living for the average Iraqi family. It is not surprising
then that Iraqi households not only had water and electricity and good
roads but also enjoyed the luxuries of life with food, good clothing,
and nice living accommodations and services.
As explained by an Iraqi to me, during the rule of President Saddam an
Iraqi could buy a French suit that cost $125 in France for only $25 in
Iraq. How was the Iraqi government able to do that? It used its excess
oil revenues to purchase the suits at $125 and was able to sell it to
its people for only $25. The difference was picked up by the state. As
a result Europeans would come to Baghdad to purchase their own European
The Iraqi government did the same thing with apartments and buildings
it provided its citizens that were government subsidized. It made
quality living accommodations affordable by selling these homes to
Iraqi citizens at a nominal price. As a result the average Iraqi family
could well afford air-conditioning, cars, appliances and VCRs for their
homes. In fact the government planned to build the first Arab-made car
but had to cancel plans due to the aggression against Iraq.
There is no reason for the Arab people not to pursue the same model
afforded by Iraq under president Saddam if a political change such as
that which took place in Iraq with the Ba'athist revolution there
presented itself in the Arab countries to propel them to the level of
life afforded to the Iraqi people in the days when President Saddam
Hussein and the Ba'ath governed Iraq, a level of life comparable to
that of so-called "developed" countries such as those in Europe.
Pakistan: Ji turning the tide by Peaceful means
Mass Rally in Peshawar Demands Complete Withdrawal of U.S. forces
from the Muslim World.
Syed Munawar Hasan Says Drone Attacks and Pak Army Ops in Swat Part of
by Umeed Khan [in Peshawar]
PESHAWAR: Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Chief Syed Munawar Hassan declared that
the anti-US forces in the country would be brought on a single platform.
Speaking at the 'Go America Go' rally here at the Jinnah Park, the JI
leader said that partners of the coalition government including Maulana
Fazlur Rehman were supporting the government's pro-US policies and there
was no chance to enter into alliance with these parties.
'Maulana Fazlur Rehman cannot be considered aloof from the policies of
President Zardari, by issuing mere few statements,' he said. The rally,
attended by a large number of people, started from Hashtnagri Chowk and
ended at the Jinnah Park. The venue was decorated with banners and
placards inscribed with anti-US slogans. Provincial president of the
party Sirajul Haq and other leaders were also present on the occasion.
Mr Hassan said that the Awami National Party and Pakistan Muslim
League-Nawaz were also part of the Zardari-led government. JI will
welcome only those parties in the proposed anti-US alliance that quit
the coalition government and practically oppose the government's pro-
American policies, he said. He urged the political forces to launch 'Go
America Go' campaigns at their platforms, which would result in a
strong anti-US alliance. He alleged that the rulers had continued the
policies of former dictator Gen Musharraf.
He said that the so-called US war on terror was actually a war against
the Islamic world. Innocent people were being killed in the name of
terrorism, he added.
Expressing concern over missile attacks in the tribal area, he said that
drone attacks and security forces operation in Malakand and the tribal
area were part of the US agenda and the government had allegedly given
blank check to Washington to kill its innocent citizens.
He said that Afghanistan and the tribal region would become graveyard
for the US and Nato forces. He said that UK and Russian forces had been
defeated in Afghanistan and now the Nato would face the same fate.
Opposing military operation in Swat and Waziristan, the JI chief said
that use of forces was no solution to any problem and the government
should start process of dialogue to resolve the issue.
He criticized Awami National Party-led coalition government in the
Frontier province, saying that so-called champions of Pakhtun rights
always went against the wishes of the Pakhtun when they faced difficult
time. 'At the time of Partition, the ANP stood alongside Gandhi, during
Afghan war, it supported Russia and now it has adopted pro-US policies,'
Sirajul Haq in his address said the ANP had failed to protect the
Pakhtuns. After the failure of the ANP government to get the rights of
the Frontier province under net hydel profit, the JI set a three-month
deadline for the center to pay the NWFP its share otherwise a protest
campaign would be launched in Islamabad.
He said that the ANP had failed to meet any of the promises made with
the people of the province.
The rally passed unanimous resolution demanding complete withdrawal
of the US forces from the region and stopping intervention in the
internal affairs of Pakistan. Through a resolution, the JI asked the
government to control price hike and announce relief package for the
poor on the occasion.

drone attacks in Waziristan as well as Pakistani military operations in
Swat-Dir-Buner etc. There is no alternative to peace, he said.
