The War Within Islam

This augurs badly for the political, economic and intellectual elites who have supported and benefited from this system at the expense of the majority of the Arab peoples....

 

For Pakistan, China has been the bedrock of our foreign policy, as well as our economic saviour. It is also an important importer of Saudi and Iranian oil. And other developing Muslim countries have benefited from Chinese aid and loans. All these factors have served to mute criticism of Beijing’s assault on Uighur religion and culture....

This year, the Arbaeen ceremony was also a political skirmish — the latest test of Iran’s power in Iraq and of Iraq’s increasing desire for independence from its powerful neighbour....

 

The silence of Muslim countries in particular is because they have an equally harsh anti-extremism policy. Moreover, there is a feeling in the Muslim world that they should support China because it is facing up to the US which is considered as the bigger enemy.

Several officials said the withdrawal of U.S. support for its allies in Syria all but guarantees an eventual victory there for the alliance that includes Iran, Russia and the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad — perhaps working in combination with Turkey...

 

The Turkish policy midwifed the birth in the 1970s to militant groups like the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK), which only dropped its demand for Kurdish independence in recent years....

 

Thus, speaking about “Sunnis, Shi’ites and Kurds” is rather like discussing “Catholics, Protestants and Canadians,” or dividing the population of Asia into the three religious sects of “Buddhism, Shinto and Japan.”…

 

The Shiites of Iraq have been in the center of the uprising. Most likely, they are the ones who know most about why it has erupted, and how the regional expansionist conspiracy is hell-bent impoverishing one of the Middle East’s richest countries....

 

Although the de facto Saudi ruler Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) is hellbent on fighting Iran to the last American, his country will not escape punishing attacks from Iran should war break out. ....

 

Until very recently the geopolitical configuration of the Middle East appeared to be stabilizing: Iran faced crippling economic and financial sanctions imposed by a growing antagonistic coalition including the US, Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. ...

 

Khashoggi’s remains have never been found. Maybe there was nothing left to conceal once the body parts had been boiled in acid at the consul-general’s residence....

 

The efforts to divide are orchestrated and well-funded. The truth is that much of the division based on our religion is against our religion and against the commandments of the Qur’an and Sunnah, the two sources we gave a lot of lip service to....

Individuals once tolerated by regimes as symbols of their openness to change were sidelined or pushed out when proposed reforms cut too deeply into autocratic prerogatives....

While reforms such as allowing women to drive and to travel without a guardian's approval are positive, some things "are better left unchanged," she said. The risk is of "harming the purity of Saudi when new, non-Islamic practices start to spread in the holy place."...

There is a clear pattern of human rights abuses without meaningful checks since the crown prince came to power. An early signal of this trend was nothing less than Saudi Arabia’s role in creating one of the worst man-made catastrophes in Yemen.....

 

Though the Security Council refused to act, Secretary-General Javier Pérez de Cuéllar, acting alone, sent no less than six fact-finding missions to investigate. They consistently reported that Iraq was raining down chemical weapons on Iranians. Still, the UN did not act....

 

They are sitting on a heap of rubble in Yemen, in Aramco and in Syria. Iran, meanwhile, has consolidated itself with the Hezbollah in Beirut, the Hashd al-Shaabi (in Iraq) and the Houthis in Yemen..,.

Among this is false claims of mainland Chinese being indiscriminately granted citizenship in Malay-majority Malaysia, a story which went viral, causing Malays to feel they are losing out and that the country is about to be taken over by the Chinese....

 

To legislate and take exceptional measures for preventing custodial crimes is the international as well as constitutional commitment of the government....

 

To try to answer this question, some important facts must be addressed. First, Tehran is well aware that such an operation would place it in direct confrontation with Saudi Arabia and the United States. Everyone knows that Washington will tolerate anything but oil....

 

When the sun rose a few hours later, thick plumes of smoke were visible from space. The images reminded some of the 1991 war with Iraq, when Saddam Hussein’s retreating army set fire to oilfields in Kuwait....

 Considering that the refugees were fellow Muslims escaping severe human-rights violations, the foremost concerns may have been related to the humane aspect of the issue. However, the practicality of how Bangladesh would manage such a huge influx of refugees economically and socially was also of tremendous concern....

 

Despite public and congressional outrage in the United States over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi or the war in Yemen, the Trump administration has stood like a rock behind the two Gulf allies....

 

Countries like Saudi Arabia, who have used religion to legitimise their own regime, political standing and global efforts pertaining to the matters of Ummah, are conspicuous by their feeble and pusillanimous stand against the Chinese for their treatment of the Uighur Muslims....

 

Indeed, a number of Arab governments are working on an unprecedentedly close basis with Israel to address the Iranian threat. This cooperation, which had largely taken place behind the scenes...
