Shia Sunni Peace is possible:
suggestions by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
Those who attack Shia places of worship should be given the
Shias should listen to their leaders in Iran and Iraq who
are telling them to stop insulting the wives of the Prophet,
pbuh, and the sahaba, r.a. Muslim countries should make such
abuse a felony.
Shia processions on Ashura are very provocative and are a
major cause of conflict as they pass through Sunni areas and
by mosques. There is no need in Shia religion for such
processions and they should be banned.
There is no doubt that Husain, r.a., was innocent, brave and
pious. Kerbala was a crime of huge dimensions. However,
research should be carried out to confirm these two aspects
which allow Shias to spread out their abuse into the
pre-Kerbala history of Islam.
There is no evidence that Yazeed killed Husain, r.a.
There is no evidence that Yazeed ordered Ibn Ziyad to
kill Husain, r.a.
If anyone can find any such evidence, let me know.
If shias want to live in harmony with Sunni Muslims, they
should express sorrow for the murder of Usman, r.a.,
martyred by the supporters of Ali, r.a. Also, remember the
martyrdom of Abdullah ibn Zubair, r.a., by the forces of
Yazeed's successor. Abdullah, r.a., was the first child
born in Madinah after the hijra and the Prophet, pbuh, loved
him like he loved Husain, r.a.
Authentic Islamic Scholars in their own words:
Muhammad ibn Abdel Wahhab
"You - may Allah's mercy be upon you - have to know that we
are obliged to learn four issues:
Knowledge: It means true cognition of Allah, His Prophet
and the religion of Islam through their evidences.
Acting according to this knowledge.
To propagate it.
Patience in enduring the injurious difficulties of
knowledge and its exigencies.
The evidence of that is the statement of Exalted Allah:
"In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. By the
declining day. Lo! man is in the state of loss, save those
who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to
truth, and exhort one another to endurance." [The Quran
About this Qura'nic text, alShafai, Allah's mercy be on him,
commented: "If Allah had revealed nothing except this sura
as an irrefutable demonstration before His creation, it
would be adequate enough to convince them."
Al-Bukhari, Allah's mercy be on him, with the same emphasis,
said: "Knowledge must precede both statement and action."
The evidence of this is the statement of Allah the
"So know [O Muhammaf], that there is no God save Allah and
ask forgiveness for thy sin." [47:19]
In this verse, Allah started with the word KNOW before
statement and action."
[ as-Salatha usool fit Tawheed by Shaikh ul Islam Muhammad
ibn Abdul Wahhab.]
[Please note the truth about this great scholar whom the
sectarians abuse every day and whose name the Zionists have
turned into a term of abuse --"wahhabi." Wahhab is one of
the names of Allah. This is Abdel Wahhab, Beware the poison
of the sectarians.. He had nothing to do with the current
rulers of Saudi Arabia. Editor New Trend]
S.Africa's ANC hosts Hamas rally despite Israel protest

Khaled Meshaal, exiled leader of the Islamic Palestinian
organization Hamas, addresses a rally in his honour on
October 21, 2015, in Cape Town, South Africa (AFP
Cape Town (AFP) - South Africa's ruling party hosted a rally
in Cape Town for a top Hamas leader on Wednesday, capping
off a controversial visit by pledging to stand by
Palestinians amid growing violence in Israel and the
The African National Congress (ANC) invited exiled Hamas
leader Khaled Meshaal and colleagues from the Islamist
militant group on a three-day visit to South Africa,
sparking strong criticism from Israel.
President Jacob Zuma exchanged gifts with Meshaal on Monday
and signed a letter expressing support for Palestinians.
"It is state-sponsored crime from the people of Israel on
Palestine," said Marius Fransman, a provincial ANC chairman,
drawing cheers from the crowd in Cape Town.
"People close their eyes, we are taking a stand. We have to
reaffirm the message of the unity of the oppressed
Hamas supporters lined the streets near the venue, waving
the organisation's white-and-green flag.
Addressing the rally, Meshaal compared the Palestinian cause
to the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa.
"South Africa, you have achieved your freedom, the people of
Palestine are aspiring to attain their freedom," he
Violent protests that first began in annexed east Jerusalem
and the occupied West Bank have in the past month spread to
Gaza, were Hamas has called for further unrest.
"The uprisings shall continue until the freedom is achieved
and the land is for Palestine and its people," Meshaal told
the audience of a few hundred people.
"Do not expect that they should stop with the uprising, do
not expect that they should stop with the resistance."
The Israeli foreign ministry on Monday had summoned South
Africa's deputy ambassador to protest against Meshaal's
visit, which it said "encourages terror by giving some
legitimacy to a terror organisation."
The European Union and the United States have blacklisted

Our America: Atlanta
Rally and Speeches against CDC Vaccine Danger Cover-Up
by Karin Friedemann [Boston]
Atlanta, Georgia: On October 23-25, 2015, an interfaith
coalition including Nation of Islam and the Church of
Scientology join with Bobby Kennedy, medical doctors and
community leaders for a Truth, Transparency & Freedom Rally
in front of the Center for Disease Control headquarters to
demand that the "CDC Whistleblower" Dr. William Thompson be
subpoenaed to testify to Congress, following the revelation
by Florida Rep Bill Posey (R) that CDC scientists were
allegedly instructed to destroy vaccine research which
revealed a link between the MMR vaccine and autism,
particularly in Black boys.
Their study claimed that there was no link between the MMR
vaccine and autism. However, Dr. Thompson came forward last
year with an unprecedented admission: he and his colleagues
committed scientific misconduct. Thompson has since then
been federally granted whistleblower status and immunity. In
a statement released in August, 2014, Dr. Thompson stated,
"I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically
significant information in our 2004 article published in the
Dr. Thompson exposed a culture of fraud in the CDC, an
institution with a built-in conflict of interest regarding
vaccine profits versus vaccine safety. The CDC buys over $4
billion of vaccines each year from the pharmaceutical
industry to distribute to the states' public health
departments. US vaccination rates must remain huge for the
CDC to get reimbursed for that purchase. Thus, vaccine
safety scientists are under tremendous pressure not to link
vaccines and neurological adverse events. The doctor stated
that he was specifically told "point blank" from his
superiors in multiple instances to not report such findings
and to find ways using fraudulent statistical methods to
obviate the results and falsely give vaccines a clean bill
of health. Dr. Thompson stepped forward due to the agony of
over 10 years of lying and covering up the real truth
regarding vaccine injury.
The same weekend, on October 24, in Oakland California,
Minister Keith Muhammad of NOI leads a solidarity protest
against mandatory vaccination, which is being proposed as
law in California. If the bill is passed, it will no longer
be possible to claim a religious exemption allowing
unvaccinated children to attend school. SB 277 removes the
last "check and balance" in preventing vaccine injury in
children- parental consent rights. Muhammad has been
championing the effort to oppose SB 277 by doing outreach
with members of the Legislative Black Caucus in California.
Assemblyman Isadore Hall, III apologized for his previous
vote on SB 277 and promised to research the matter and if
necessary, write a letter to Governor Brown urging him to
veto SB 277 if it passes.
At the recent Million Man March commemoration in DC, on
October 12, Reverend Tony Muhammad accused CDC of
intentionally doctoring vaccines to injure black and
Hispanic boys. He claimed that the vaccinations were
genetically modified to target children of color with
deliberate injury. What the whistleblower actually stated
was simply that evidence demonstrates that Blacks are more
vulnerable to vaccine injury than whites. African-American
babies who received the MMR vaccine before the age of three
were more than 3.3 times as likely to be diagnosed with
autism.Thompson further stated, "There have always been
recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the
responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks
associated with receipt of those vaccines."
In a town meeting held in Los Angeles on June 18, 2015, Dr.
Brian Hooker, whose own son was injured by a vaccine,
"In terms of vaccine injury, the study by Gallagher et al.
(published in 2010 in the Journal of Toxicology and
Environmental Health, Part A) showed that blacks were at
significantly greater risk of regressing into autism after
receiving the thimerosal-containing Hepatitis B vaccination
series as infants. Thimerosal is a mercury-based
preservative that is used in some vaccines in multidose
vials and is still used in the flu shot, the tetanus vaccine
and meningococcal pneumonia vaccine and is also in trace
amounts (sufficient to cause harm) in the Hepatitis B,
Hemophilus influenza B (HiB) and DTaP vaccines. The data
show a 5.53 times greater risk of autism for black boys
receiving the thimerosal-containing HepB vaccine series
versus those black boys not receiving any HepB shot. White
boys did not show a statistically significant risk."
The reason for this massive cover-up has to do with campaign
contributions to politicians by pharmaceutical companies.
"In an unexpected development, the Sacramento Bee published
an article on June 18 by Jim Miller listing the politicians
who had received the most money from the pharmaceutical
industry in the 2013-2014 legislative session. Not
surprisingly, topping the list at #1 was Senator Richard Pan
who is the author of SB 277, with $95,150 and followed
closely by Speaker of the Assembly, Toni Atkins, with
$90,250. The article also reported that pharmaceutical firms
and their trade groups had donated more than two million
dollars to members of the California legislature in the
2013-2104 legislative session," writes Kent Heckenlively for
Furthermore, there is a False Claims Act lawsuit pending
against Merck in the US District Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania, Case No. 10-4373 (CDJ). This case
was brought by two former Merck virologists who were
involved in the efficacy testing of the mumps portion of
Merck's MMR vaccine. According to these scientists, Merck
engaged in fraudulent testing and data falsification to
conceal the vaccine's diminished efficacy. As a result of
Merck's fraudulent scheme, the scientists allege, American
children are being injected with a vaccine that does not
provide the efficacy Merck claims it provides and does not
provide the public with adequate immunization. According to
the scientists, Merck's MMR vaccine contributed to the
recent mumps outbreaks in the US. Late last year, the Court
denied Merck's motion to dismiss the case and the case is in
the discovery phase.
Bobby Kennedy told TheBlaze he is not against vaccines but
he wants vaccines to be safe, especially "pediatric
vaccines." The Atlanta event wraps up with an interfaith
prayer at Muhammad's Mosque #15.

Azerbaijan remembers victims of Khojaly Genocide
By Dr Shahid Qureshi - :[The London Post.]
LONDON - 26th February 2015 was the 23rd anniversary of
Khojaly Genocide, the atrocities committed by invading
Armenian armed forces in the town of Khojaly during the war
between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Armenian military attack
against helpless civilians in Khojaly left 613 civilians
dead, including 63 children, more than 1000 heavily injured
and 1275 taken as hostages.
Human Rights Watch report about what was committed in the
town of Khojaly describes the events as "the largest
massacre in the course of the war between Armenia and
Azerbaijan", whereas Moscow-based human rights group
Memorial highlighted: Actions of Armenian militants were in
gross violation of basic international human rights
"Justice for Khojaly" international awareness campaign was
launched in May 2008 aiming to raise awareness and drawing
the attention of the international community to this
horrible tragedy. The "Justice for Khojaly" campaign
involves peaceful actions, protests, conferences, seminars,
presentations and publications across many countries with a
view to spreading the word about what happened in Khojaly.
The campaign has attracted support from many organizations,
human rights groups and countries with the passing of
resolutions condemning the genocidal atrocities in
Speaking at London Karabakh Forum on the eve of the
anniversary of Khojaly Genocide Ambassador Tahir Taghizadeh
of Azerbaijan stressed: What happened in the town of Khojaly
twenty three years ago is totally unacceptable and should
have no place in modern world. While continuing our efforts
to raise international awareness about this tragic event,
our sole aim is not take avenge but to ensure crimes against
humanity on that scale are prevented from happening in
future. Thanks to "Justice for Khojaly" awareness campaign
international recognition of Khojaly Gemocide has now
includes a dozen countries and international organisations.
Here in Britain, I am delighted to receive support from
members of the public and members of the British Parliament
who have issued a joint letter condemning atrocities
committed against civilians by Armenian armed forces. It is
really crucial that we keep up these efforts to reach out to
the international community and make sure that perpetrators
of this crime are brought to justice".
The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan started in 1988
as Armenia launched an undeclared war against Azerbaijan.
Armenian armed forces have occupied around 20 per cent of
the territories of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the
Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts with
one million refugees and internally displaced persons forced
to flee their homes.
Despite a May 1994 ceasefire, and the OSCE Minsk Group-led
peace process, the conflict remains unresolved threatening
regional stability. Armenia refuses to withdraw its armed
forces from the internationally recognized territories of
Azerbaijan and refuses to abide by the U.N. Security
Council's four Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 that calls
for the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from the
occupied territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

last week, but first how we challenged the BBC and won.
The BBC's reporting of events in East Jerusalem,
the WestmBank and Gaza during October has been consistently
Israel, and portraying the occupier solely as a victim.
However, in the last two weeks we've shown that people power
can make a difference to reporting.
On the morning of Saturday 10th October, two Palestinia boys
- Marwan Barbakh, 12, and Khalil Othman, 15 - were shot dead
by Israeli soldiers in Gaza. The BBC failed to report the
killings. Instead, the BBC Online headline for the day was:

That evening, we highlighted this extraordinary bias on
social media, particularly Facebook, and asked you to send
complaints to the BBC. An hour later, the BBC had changed
the headline to Israeli-Palestinian violence continues and
began the article with news of the killing of the two
Palestinian boys. 
Days later, on 14th October, the BBC's Diplomatic Editor,
Mark Urban, called Jerusalem Israel's capital' during a
broadcast on Newsnight (BBC Two). 
Again, we highlighted this enormous error and asked you to

action, shutting down Oxford Street to make people stop and

When we take action, on the media, on the arms trade, and on
