One who does not have mercy on mankind, Allah Almighty does

Did the Horrific Suffering of German women in 1945-46 Impact
White Women's Self-Image in the West.
by Kaukab Siddique
In 1945, vast Russian armies swamped German defenses and
entered Germany itself.
The fate of German women under the Russian invasion was so
horrific that it boggles the mind. However it was totally
censored by the western media who wanted to present the
victory against Germany as "glorious" and a real liberation.
[Compare with the destruction of Mosul and Aleppo in Iraq
and Syria which too are being hailed as "liberation."] The
details are available in research works and in the diaries
of some of the victimized women.
As a western historian has put it, EVERY German woman was
raped, from the 80 year old grandmother to the 8 year old
female child. [The author tries to justify the mass
It might shock readers if we say that rape was the least of
it. The way the women were humiliated, cut up, deprived of
any recovery effort and slaughtered like animals went beyond
rape. After the killings, the bodies of the women were
thrown away as if they were garbage.
Many of the women were able to beg for mercy before being
ripped up but no appeal in the name of humanity worked. They
were subjected to mass rape by entire battalions of Russia's
"best" even in churches.
The British, American and French troops committed much
violence against German women but in the long range their
strategy for rape was much cleverer. They simply destroyed
all German resources for food, housing and medical supplies.
The conditions of the women became so dire that many of them
who were starving to death offered themselves to the western
troops for rape, sometimes in exchange for only a
The atrocities against German women were not actions of
out-of-control victorious soldiers but had government
protection and support. It is noticeable that most western
media did not report these crimes against humanity. A few
who did watered down the reports and even justified

I want to study the impact of the destruction of German
womanhood on Anglo-American women in general.
In America, for instance, there is no death sentence for
rape or for rape with mutilation and murder. Women's lives
Are women being subjected to the male idea that they should
make themselves sexually available to men? Why has
fornication become so widespread that it is hardly news in
the western world? Why is adultery glorified in American
media although Christianity is the religion of most White
people in America?
Why is pornography so widespread that it has become a multi
billion dollar industry, with women being projected as mere
objects of male lust?
What is the impact of the transmission of pornography from
the West to India and from India to Pakistan and other
Muslim countries? Sounds like cultural imperialism to

Heavy Fighting. Regime Enters Deir ez Zor but is stuck. City

Jet Shot down. Damascus Dilemma.
During the week of September 11 to 17, regime troops finally
broke into the city of Deir ez Zor after severe clashes
between IS mujahideen on one side and Russian, Iranian and
Lebanese Hizbullah on the other. Syrian Observatory and wire
services indicate that THREE air forces are bombing Deir ez
Zor : Russia, the regime and USA. Civilian deaths are
terrorizing the population and people are fleeing to the
interior of the province.
The regime is facing the problem that if its
Russian-Iranian-Hizb supporters are unable to achieve a
quick victory, street fighting in which mujahideeen excel
could inflict heavy losses.
A jet fighter of the Assad regime was shot down by IS east
of Deir ez Zor. The fate of the pilot is unknown.

Muslims and the Internet
Waheeduddin Ahmed [Milwaukee, Wisconsin]
One of the greatest blessings for mankind in modern times is
the internet technology. Information of any kind and on any
subject is at one's fingertips. A semiliterate person can
write without making sp
elling mistakes and even comply with grammar. Both, the
erudite and the imbecile can propagate their thoughts and
find audience, often captive and coerced.
On the flip side however, there are great dangers lurking in
the shadows in cyberspace which, if not taken care of, can
destroy humanity. The biggest danger comes from the
potential of spreading hatred. Never before has humanity
been so vulnerable and at the disposal of destructive
Muslims are on the centerpiece, open and exposed and true to
their nature, either unaware or unwittinglyinstrumental in
the ritual of their own destruction. Antagonism to Islam
extends to every segment of the word's population:
Christian's, Hindus, Buddhists and Atheists. Never before
have the Muslims faced such tremendous odds arrayed against
them. The enemy has done his homework, working out the
strategy and tactics and to his own exhilaration finds
Muslims utterly unprepared. Stones are being cast at them
from within and without and they are running heads down
hither and thither trying to find shelter.
If we look around we find that we cannot meet this challenge
any time soon. We have no defensive strategy and tactics,
let alone any offense. Sometimes knee jerk reaction comes
from some random individuals, who are neither trained nor
skillful in such engagements with the adversaries. We are
losing the propaganda war all over the globe. Look at our
national leaders standing dazed and dumbfounded in the face
This is not to say that we are completely lacking in
articulation. Our "scholars" are ever so ready to tear each
other apart in sectarian and doctrinal discussions. Our best
brains are busy researching the matters of dress and
menstruation. They have never heard of Genghis Khan and
contemporary Muslim mores which had brought his grandson to
Baghdad, to deal a fatal blow to a flourishing civilization.
The only Muslims who are thoroughly prepared for battles are
the dons of sectarian divisions, who have done their
homework and have sharpened their teeth and nails to devour
their opponents. These are scholars, scholars of internal
contradictions and conflicts. What does it take to attain
that position? Ask any irate antisocial Muslim individual.
He will tell you that intellectualism is un-Islamic;
education is what is contained in the confines of his brain
where it stagnates and freezes. He will also tell you that
everyone except he or she is going to hell.
So, all an outside enemy has to do to prevail is to create
the avenues of divisive discourses, directly or indirectly
and then watch our "scholars"reach for each other's throats.
To this effect the internet is a heavenly gift to them,
which is proving to be useful beyond their wildest dreams.
It is like throwing bones to the watchdogs to distract them
from their watch.
I am thoroughly disgusted with the verbosity I encounter on
the internet, irrespective of where it is coming from:Shia,
Sunni, Barelvi, Devbandi or any other mouth. My advice to
them:STOP! Your children are watching you and are disgusted
with you. The future generations of Muslims may even want to
get out of religion altogether because of you. Then they
will lose the spiritual canopy and the moral shelter which
are essential for solace and which humans have needed from
My advice to our cyber socialites is: don't respond to the
religious hate mongers and turn a deaf ear to the sectarian
hooligans.Those who are attacking Islam are doing so under
the protective shield of atheism so that they don't have to
defend their own religious and cultural abnormalities. The
genuine atheists do not attack people or selected religions.
They just propound the unlikelihood of the existence of God.
Many discussion groups have been created apparently by
people with Muslim names for the convenience and the benefit
of Islamophobes to defame and desecrate Islam.
We ourselves should not attack other religions such as
Hinduism and Christianity, although it may be very tempting.
We are forbidden to do so. Besides, it may be
counterproductive. Be unilateral when you discuss Islam
Be rational; use logic (our philosophers used it to the full
extent), without being pedant.
If the most able among us do nothing, the less able will
make the stand to make the outcome unfavorable.
Guidance in Treating Afflictions in these Troubled Times.

greater than it was.
