The War Within Islam

Moqtada al-Sadr, nearly two thirds of a century later, has brought this critique, which the old world that lacked strong arguments used to rebuke the ideas, organizations and institutions of the new world, back to the fore....

Now, amid staggering levels of anti-Iran demonstrations across the country, the Iraqi people have a genuine shot at ejecting Tehran’s invasive political influence and creating a truly sovereign Iraqi state....

 

Washington and Tel Aviv are counting on the fact that anger at the ‘Deal of the Century’ among Arabs and Muslims will eventually peter out, exactly as happened after Trump recognized all of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, moving his country’s embassy there in May 2018....

 

The Houthis say they are leading a Zaydi revival, but they are also changing the way Zaydism is practised, bringing it more in line with mainstream Shiism. They have opened Husseiniyas, halls to mourn the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Hussein...

 

“How could you question someone’s patriotism?” the chief justice of Islamabad High Court inquired while hearing the bail application of political activists arrested by the capital administration and charged with sedition. The young detainees were protesting against the arrest of Manzoor Pashteen, the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement leader who has also been charged with sedition....

The henchmen of Muqtada al-Sadr, Iraq’s most capricious—and perhaps most powerful—cleric, not only participated in the anti-government protests that have rocked Baghdad and other cities for months, they defended them....

 

Jinnah envisaged the most capable men and women to hold public office regardless of their personal faith or lack thereof. The state was a temporal endeavour to Jinnah and not an otherworldly one...

 

Despite their claims to being the “guardians of Islam” and “protector of Muslims,” Arab monarchies have demonstrated they care only for two things: countering Iran at every turn, and growing trade ties with the powerhouse economies committing human rights violations against Muslims.....

 

The real expansion of proxy power has come this century, starting with the US-led invasion of Iraq, which opened up a country formerly closed to Tehran’s intelligence network, and then the Arab Spring uprisings...

 

The question now is: Can US policy affords to tip the internal balance against the mullahs, even as Trump tries to extricate us from the region?...

Britain in particular was soon in a tight spot with the Zionists and Arabs in what is now Israel and Palestine. Britain was entrusted to support the recently founded Zionist movement that aimed to create “a national home for the Jewish people” in the land....

 

The two forces had coexisted in separate spheres for years, but they now openly clash head-on in Iran, Iraq, Syria and in Lebanon, as "resistance" troops try to beat down "revolutionary" protests by force....

 

People want to live in a society where they enjoy freedom of thought and action and can freely exercise their right to speak. Liberal democracies thrive on the freedom of expression. ..

Islamo-Fascism and Islam-Supremacism Feeding Islamophobia Worldwide: Sultan Shahin Tells UN Human Rights Council In Geneva

Islamo-Fascism and Islam-Supremacism Feeding Islamophobia Worldwide: Sultan Shahin Tells UN Human Rights Council In Geneva
Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

Madame President,... But xenophobia, particularly in the form of Islamophobia, is growing in several European countries and partly feeds upon the flagrant violation of the human rights of religious minorities in several Muslim-majority countries. Petrodollar Islam has injected the poison of Islam-supremacism in Muslim societies worldwide.  Even exemplary moderate countries like Indonesia, Malaysia are now infected with this virus. But the worst case scenario is evolving in the only Muslim nuclear power, Pakistan. Jihadi vigilantes including members of security forces are hunting down and killing all those who oppose their version of Islam. The country is drowning in a sea of violence but civil society, media or elected parliamentarians dare not condemn the wanton killings in the name of Islam. -- Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam, addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council’s 16th session in Geneva on 22 March 2011 in the General Debate on Follow-up and implementation of the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action.

Until the mid-1970s, Pakistan enjoyed a seamless relationship with Iran. In fact, Pakistan was closer to Iran than it was to Saudi Arabia. Iran, a modern pro-US monarchy, was one of the first countries to recognise Pakistan when it was formed in August 1947...

 

This crisis is threatening to undermine the peaceful protest movement that for months has been challenging the Iraqi political system and establishment — putting the protesters in a very difficult situation....

 

Saudi Arabia's tantrums are age-old and its sense of entitlement only a pretence. Two types of countries are normally unaffected by Saudi mood excesses: Their arch-enemies who can speak in a tough language and those who have surrendered in a sycophantic way....

 

Imran Khan of Pakistan made his debut as his country’s leader with a sterling reputation garnered in his career as a cricketer. All his fans expected the Kaptan (Captain)—the sobriquet his admirers affectionately use for him—to make waves...

At a state level, with a few notable exceptions, the political landscape of the Arab world might be characterised as follows: a core of monarchies which has thus far survived the turbulence of the Arab Spring...

 

KL Summit was perceived as a potential threat to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) as it was similar enough to be an alternate platform. However, it is to be more broad-based, modern and in line with democratic norms....

 

Part of this snub arose from Malaysia’s initial reluctance to extend invitations to Saudi and its Gulf allies, while it proactively engaged Turkey, Qatar, Iran and Pakistan, countries which have been at loggerheads with Saudi Arabia in recent years for a range of reasons....

 

We hope that not only Pakistan, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia, but all Muslim states would sooner rather than later join the idea and make important contributions to this noble cause….

Islamic leadership is not merely about slogans, but actions and practices, and each country shouldering its responsibilities. If Turkey, Iran and Qatar genuinely want to help Muslims, they should stop supporting militias and terrorist organizations that kill Muslims in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon, and Libya — and instead start contributing to the work of existing Islamic organizations....

 

Saudi Arabia’s snub of the KL Summit demonstrates its intolerance for Iran and the Shias. Rouhani’s excellent speech highlighted global economic terrorism. It was in tandem with Mahathir’s own contempt for economic imperialism and sanctions by big powers. Rouhani and Mahathir are obviously on the same page...

The Founder of Pakistan repeatedly said that Pakistan shall not be a theocratic state to be run by priests with a divine mission. In the last All India Muslim League’s convention in Karachi in December 1947, he explained that in his view Islam did not stand for an ecclesiastical state. ...
