Al-Baghdadi's Deputy, 12 Other Notorious ISIL Commanders Killed at Iraqi-Syrian Border

Jul 30, 2016

TEHRAN (FNA) - At least 13 notorious ISIL leaders were killed by Iraqi warplanes near the Syrian border.

Among the dead is deputy of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the ringleader of the ISIL, an army statement said.

The Iraqi fighter jets launched an airstrike on a gathering center of ISIL commanders in al-Qa'em town, which is located nearly 400km Northwest of Baghdad near the Syrian border, it added.

The statement said that the airstrike also led to the destruction of two booby-trapped cars and a bomb-making plant.

The statement also pointed to massive explosions at the site "which means the high quantities of ammunition and explosive belts which were destroyed".

Reports said earlier this week that commanders of the ISIL terrorist group have ordered their forces and family members to leave their last bases and strongholds in Western Iraq as Iraq's military forces are preparing to launch massive military operations in the region, local sources said Tuesday.

"The Iraqi military forces are preparing to capture the last ISIL strongholds in Western Iraq and the military equipment for these operations have been fully supplied and transferred, and we are waiting for the final order by the joint operations command center to attack al-Khalediya island and Heet town in the Western parts of al-Anbar province," Head of the Security Committee of al-Anbar province's Council Rajeh al-Issawi said on Tuesday.

Also, a local source in Western Iraq said that the ISIL commanders and their families have fled the al-Baghdadi island in the Western parts of Heet, one of the most notorious ISIL bases.

The source added that ISIL commanders, fearing the Iraqi army and popular forces' rapid advance, have fled towards al-Qae'm town in Western al-Anbar.

Ajmer Dargah spiritual head asks Muslims to protect cows

July 30, 2016

JAIPUR: The spiritual head of Ajmer Dargah Zainul Abedin Ali Khan on Thursday said the Muslim community should present an example by protecting cows which hold religious significance for Hindus.

He also suggested that those who create violence over the issue of beef should avoid doing it and called upon both the communities to live with harmony and unity in the interest of the country.

“Some elements are trying to disturb the harmony between Hindu and Muslim communities on the issue of beef. Cow is the religious symbol for Hindus but the issue of beef has become a new weapon of religion which is having a negative impact on the image of the country,” he said in a statement.

Geo News ‘blocked’ for equating Kashmir with Balochistan

July 30, 2016

Karachi/Islamabad: Pakistan’s Geo News television channel has reportedly been blocked for equating ‘Kashmir’ with ‘ Balochistan.’

Access to the television channel was blocked in Karachi last night by moving it to the last numbers, which made it totally inaccessible in many areas.

This is the second time that Geo News is being penalised for voicing its freedom of speech.

In April 2014, Geo News was completely shut down and fined Rs. 20 million for airing blasphemous content and ridiculing the judiciary.

A channel spokesperson said that if the curbs imposed on media freedom were not lifted by today, the group would not only move the court with full force, but will also strongly raise the issue on the streets, and sensitize local and international forums.

He was quoted as saying, “We would be compelled to reveal the entire situation and incidents, with all proof. All demands being made to us and the conditions being imposed to pressure us would also be made public which would expose the affiliations of many so-called respected notables. ”

He added that Karachi is just a small part of this continuous situation that the media channel has been facing in some secure and sensitive areas where it is practically blocked completely.

He also repeated the demand for the formation of an independent commission to investigate all affairs, including the false allegations and the ban on Geo News.

The spokesman alleged that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is responsible for this as he is the chief executive and head of all national institutions.

Reacting to the complaint received from the channel, the Pakistan Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has sought the assistance of the Federal Government and local law enforcement agencies to act against those cable operators who have resorted to illegal disruption of Geo News in Karachi.

According to a press release issued by PEMRA on Saturday, Chairman Absar Alam has invoked Section 33-A of PEMRA Ordinance 2002, seeking “immediate assistance from Federal Government to take action against PEMRA law violators in Karachi”.

PEMRA said it has also ordered 11 cable operators, namely Home Vision, City/GIA, New DIGI, Tracks, KCS, Global Cable, Karachi Cable, Skyline, Show Time, Universal Production, and Sky Multi Services, to immediately restore Geo News at the position at which it was being relayed on 28th July.

Afghan Taliban attempts to attract China support in their campaign

Sat Jul 30 2016

The Taliban militants group in Afghanistan is attempting to attract China’s support in their ongoing bloody campaign in Afghanistan which has entered to its 15th year with the civilians paying a hefty price of the ongoing violence.

According to a Taliban leader quoted in a report by Pakistan’s The Express “I can confirm that our delegation had visited China to discuss matters between both countries. They discussed the invasion in the region and to adopt a joint stance against the malicious policies of the invading countries.”

The Taliban leader further added “Policies of the Islamic Emirate (Taliban) about the region and the world also came under discussion,” a Taliban official told The Express Tribune on the condition of anonymity.

The official did not make any comment on the possibility of peace talks between the group and the Afghan government. But sources familiar with the visit said both sides “explored prospects” for a political dialogue as Beijing could be an ‘honest broker’ to start the peace process.

This comes as China has stepped up efforts to play a key role in the region amid deteriorating security situation.

China was one of the four members of the Quadrilateral Coordination Group which was formed to revive the Afghan peace talks.

Besides, China has stepped up direct government to government support and has pledged over $70 million in military aid to Afghanistan.

The country delivered its first batch of military aid to Afghanistan last month, a move which reportedly sparked concerns among the Taliban leadership.

Social media a key battleground in America's Islamic State fight

July 29, 2016

ASPEN • The most important battlefields in America’s war against Islamic State terrorists may be Twitter and Facebook, experts told the Aspen Security Forum Friday.

“This arguably is the most complex challenge the federal government and industry faces,” said George Selim, who heads the Department of Homeland Security’s community partnerships program.

Federal officials have warned for two years that social media sites have become tools for terror organizations to recruit and radicalize followers.

Monica Bickert Facebook’s head of global policy said her firm and other social media sites are working overtime to stamp out radical posts. But with billions of photos, videos and posts a day, the problem is daunting.

“This is something the industry takes very seriously,” she said. “Realistically speaking, the internet is a big place.”

Efforts are also underway to use social media to fight Islamic State efforts more directly.

“For this to be effective you have to have authenticity,” U.S. Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif. “You have to find the jaded jihadist who has a story to tell that resonates.”

Selim said a key component to fighting terrorism online is having people understand the signs that someone could be turning toward radical views.

“We’re trying to prevent and intervene in the process of radicalization,” he said.

Royce said, though, that anti-terror messages from federal authorities would likely hit a wall of cynicism with the target audience.

“Hollywood has to be involved in this, and certainly Silicon Valley has to be more involved,” Royce said.

The need to act is clear.

“The No. 1 threat to the homeland is ISIS’ ability to recruit and radicalize,” Selim said.

Syria Blasts Massacre of Civilians in US-Led Coalition Airstrikes

July 30, 2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syria lashed out at the US-led coalition for killing 45 civilians and injuring 50 others in airstrikes near the city of Manbij in Aleppo on Thursday, calling on the UN to take rapid action to stop the massacre.

“In two letters addressed to head of the UN Security Council and the UN Secretary-General, the [foreign] ministry called for stopping attacks and atrocities committed against civilians, calling for bringing the perpetrators to justice,” the state news agency SANA reported.

“The letters went on to say that any counterterrorism efforts in Syria are doomed unless done in cooperation with the Syrian government in accordance with international law and the UN Charter,” it added.

On Thursday night, US Central Command (CENTCOM) acknowledged that the airstrikes “may have resulted in civilian casualties,” but did not name a figure, pending a likely future investigation.

The Thursday massacre was carried out after at least 15 people were killed and injured in US-led airstrikes against al-Nawajah village east of Manbij on July 23, a few days after another deadly US-led raid left 120 civilians dead near Manbij.

On July 22, the military coalition also killed at least 20 civilians in Manbij and claimed the lives of at least 30 more, including 11 children, in the same city on June 9, in aerial attacks purportedly conducted against positions of the ISIL in the area.

Amunetwork.Com

30 July 2017

Aligarh: "Eat and drink, but waste not by excess, for Allah loveth not the wasters", reminded Dr. Mohd. Iqtedar Husain Farooqi, author of internationally acclaimed book PLANTS OF THE QURAN, while highlighting the Quranic injunctions regarding the flora and fauna at a book release ceremony organized by the Ibne Sina Academy.

The ceremony, which was presided over by the Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah, in the presence of the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Brig. S. Ahmad Ali, saw releasing of two books of Dr. Farooqi "Animals in the Holy Quran" and "Dictionary of Flora and Fauna of Quran".

Making a special reference to the animals and plants mentioned in the holy Quran, Dr. Farooqi said, "Biological diversity means the variety of life forms of different categories in a region or on the globe and protecting this diversity on Earth is prime duty of all Muslims".

     He said that Allah warns the man, "And when he turneth away (from thee) his efforts in the land is to make mischief therein and to destroy the crops and cattle; and Allah loveth no mischief".

Reciting several verses from the Holy Quran, Dr. Farooqi made it clear that "Allah does not like those who create disturbances (mischief), whether ecological or otherwise on Earth".

How football gave Rohingya refugees hope and purpose

Sat Jul 30 2016

Hamid Ullah's face lights up when he has to present his identification card at the start of every game. Like the 20 players of Lakemba's all age division nine team, having a recognised identity was as far-fetched as playing registered football when he was growing up as a Rohingya in Burma. The closest they got in their native country were social games held in secret deep inside rice paddies, far from the sight of authorities.

"The Buddhists don't let us play because they say it's not our country, it's their country," Ullah says

Muslim Religious Leaders Must Step Up In The Fight Against Radical Islam

 29/07/2016

After the despicable attack in Nice, it can no longer be business as usual. As the French Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, said recently, the Nice attack shows that we are facing a new type of terrorism in the homeland. In this new form of terrorism, the timeline for radicalization, planning and execution of an attack is now very short. What this means is that the US and the rest of the free world must rethink their different approaches to combating this virus.

Hillary Clinton promises to heal America, but it's Trump who sets the agenda

30 JULY 2016

Hillary Clinton is on a mission to prove that any little girl can grow up to be president. So long as she marries one first.

Last week’s Democratic convention in Philadelphia displayed American liberalism in all its hyper-wealthy, incestuous glory. Chelsea Clinton was showcased as an heir apparent; Bill Clinton – the future First Gentleman – played with the balloons that fell from the ceiling. “And didn’t Michelle Obama give a good speech?” the Democrats asked themselves. Well, perhaps she’d like to be president someday too? Everybody gets a turn in liberal land. Everybody except rebel socialist Bernie Sanders.

After 15 years, the US's counter-terror strategy has 'unequivocally failed'

30 JULY 2016

Apple and Google, two of the country’s biggest employers, don’t mess around with failure. Leaders either produce or they’re gone. Major League Baseball and National Football League teams have one standard for their leaders: get us into the playoffs or you’re fired.

The government’s foreign policy elites, however, don’t have to succeed to keep their jobs. Unlike the rest of America, when U.S. leaders in foreign policy fail, they are rewarded or promoted, while the 330 million Americans living outside the Washington beltway foot the bill.

Muslim-Americans say Trump could inspire record voter turnout

Jul. 29, 2016

Yasmeen Kaboud's father is an Egyptian immigrant, and her mother, a child of the American heartland.

And that diverse family tapestry - from her grandfather who owns a laundromat in rural Indiana to the cousins who shared her cramped bedroom when they immigrated to the United States - has always been a point of pride.

Not until recently did she start to feel half that heritage was under attack.

"I will be voting for Hillary Clinton come November," said Kaboud, a 20-year-old University of Pennsylvania student who was elected as a Bernie Sanders delegate to the Democratic National Convention. "And that is 100 percent due to the fact that Donald Trump should not be in the White House."

The head of U.S. Central Command was misunderstood when he commented about a recent coup attempt in Turkey, the Pentagon said on July 29.

“Any reports that suggest Gen.

30 JULY 2016

PARIS (AFP) - Muslim and Christian groups will hold vigils Saturday (July 30) for a French priest murdered by terrorists in his church, as police charged a man in connection with the brutal attack that has plunged the nation into mourning again.

Father Jacques Hamel had his throat slit on the altar by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)-inspired attackers who stormed his church in a Normandy town during mass Tuesday.

A regional Muslim council has planned a "brotherhood march" in Lyon, while a church in Bordeaux said it would hold a non-denomination vigil for 85-year-old priest.

Great Britain became the first western country to issue a Sukuk in 2014, attracting orders of GBP 2bn ($2.85bn) from global investors, and Luxembourg followed suit later that year with a EUR 200m ($254m) five-year Islamic bond distributed across 29 accounts. Both were significantly oversubscribed.

Muslim blasts extremists at Friday prayer with Christians

Fri Jul 29, 2016

SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France (AP) — Muslims and Catholics joined in Friday prayers at the mosque in the Normandy town where an elderly priest was slain this week, with one imam chastising the extremists as non-Muslims who are "not part of civilization."

Muslims came from other parts of France for the service shared with Christians.

The killing Tuesday of 85-year-old Rev. Jacques Hamel as he celebrated morning Mass sent shockwaves around France and deeply touched many among the nation's 5 million Muslims. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack, as well as the July 14 truck attack in Nice, where 84 people were killed by a man who plowed his truck down a seaside promenade.

France church attackers 'smiled' and spoke of Quran

30 JULY 2016

One of the jihadists who murdered an elderly French priest smiled as he carried out the attack, and nuns who witnessed the grisly murder said the killers spoke about the Quran. The two nuns who were in the church when Father Jacques Hamel was killed, his throat slit on the altar, said the men appeared aggressive and nervous during the attack at the Eglise Saint-Etienne in Normandy on July 26. Then, one of the attackers seemed pleased. “I got a smile from the second (man). Not a smile of triumph, but a soft smile, that of someone who is happy,” nun Sister Huguette Peron told Catholic newspaper La Vie on Friday.

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tightens the Screws on his Enemies

July 30, 2016

It is all but certain that at some point over the next few weeks if not the next few days, the justice agencies of other countries are going to follow the United States in issuing charges of money laundering, theft of public funds and a plethora of others against Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and officials of the scandal-scarred 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

Despite the fact that he is due to visit Indonesia on Monday – where criminality of leaders stirs little concern – Najib is finding fewer places to run or hide, except in his own increasingly desperate country. As many as 10 countries are investigating 1MDB or his family. The gilded shopping trips to New York are over, and the homes where he and his bejeweled wife Rosmah Mansor used to stay are now confiscated.

07.29.16

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to attend a summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Nigeria later this year, The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.

The prime minister met Thursday in his office with ECOWAS’ president, Marcel Alain de Souza, where the two signed a joint declaration of intent for greater cooperation. Israeli Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold said that the meeting “brings the Prime Minister’s [Africa] initiative, that started with east African countries like Kenya and Ethiopia, to the western part of the continent.” Both parties “positively viewed the participation of the prime minister of the State of Israel in the ECOWAS summit in the near future,” they said in the declaration. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, who also met with de Souza, added that Israel and African nations “have excellent cooperation and we welcome the opportunity for Israel to contribute from its knowledge and abilities in the field of health, water, and agriculture – a sign of the friendship between us.”

Tutu: What do we do to turn back the tide of hatred‚ corruption and destruction?

29 July, 2016

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu took the world to task on Friday‚ saying that the global village is needlessly lurching from one attack of indiscriminate violence to the next.

In Jerusalem‚ troops destroyed the homes of 11 Palestinian families leading to clashes in which several Palestinians were wounded. In Mogadishu‚ a suicide bomber killed 13 people outside a United Nations office. In Aleppo‚ the United Nations called for a “critical” 48-hour ceasefire to ease the desperate plight of 200 000 civilians trapped in Syria’s all-but-destroyed second city. In Florida‚ two people died and 17 were injured after gunmen opened fire outside a Fort Myers nightclub – the latest in a string of mass shootings stretching back to Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999 …
