Blast at Sunni mosque in Baghdad kills 13

 July 14, 2013

A bomb exploded outside a Sunni mosque in Baghdad killing at least 13 people leaving prayers and extending a daily wave of violence rippling across Iraq since the holy month of Ramadan began.

A separate attack at a funeral northeast of Baghdad killed another three people.

Police said the Baghdad blast went off around 10 pm on Saturday near the gate of the Khalid bin al-Walid mosque in the capital's southern Dora neighborhood, a largely Sunni Muslim area. It struck just after special late-evening prayers held during Ramadan ended.

At least 35 people were wounded in addition to those killed, police said. A hospital official confirmed the casualty toll.

Iraq is weathering its worst eruption of violence in half a decade, raising fears the country is heading back toward widespread sectarian fighting that peaked in 2006 and 2007. More than 2,600 people have been killed since the start of April.

The pace of the bloodshed has picked up since Ramadan began on Wednesday, including a suicide bombing at a coffee shop in the northern city of Kirkuk late Friday that killed dozens.

In another attack on Saturday, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a funeral in the town of al-Abbara, near the city of Baqouba, which is about 60 kilometers northeast of Baghdad. Police and hospital officials said that attack killed three and wounded 10.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information to journalists. There has been no claim of responsibility for the recent wave of attacks.

Sunni extremists, including al Qaeda's Iraq branch, frequently target Shiites, security forces and civil servants in an effort to undermine the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.

They also could be behind Saturday's attack on the Sunni mosque, hoping that the bombing could spark a sectarian backlash against Shiites. But Shiite militias that have kept a low profile in recent years also could be to blame.

Attacks on Sunni places of worship have spiked in recent months as security has deteriorated and sectarian tensions grow.

Iraq's minority Sunnis have been protesting for months against the Shiite-led government, alleging they receive second-class treatment. Sunni militant groups have tried to tap into that anger by linking their cause to that of the demonstrators.

Prominent liberal politician Elbaradei sworn in as Egypt VP

14 July 2013

Prominent liberal Egyptian leader Mohamed ElBaradei was sworn in on Sunday as Egypt’s interim vice president for foreign relations, AFP reported the presidency as saying in a statement.

ElBaradei, a former head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog and a Nobel peace laureate, was initially tipped to lead the cabinet, but his nomination was rejected by the ultra-conservative Salafist party Al-Nour.

He is also the head of the National Salvation Front, a coalition of leftist and liberal groups, formed in the wake of a power grab by ousted President Mohammed Mursi in November.

Talks were held between Egypt’s new Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi and candidates for ministerial posts on Sunday to form an interim government after the removal of Mursi earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Nabil Fahmy, a former Egyptian ambassador to the United States, accepted the post of foreign minister on Sunday in the interim government.

Beblawi is assembling a government expected to be made up mainly of technocrats and liberals to lead Egypt under an army-backed “road map” to restore full civilian rule.

New govt unveiled on Tuesday

The new government could be unveiled by Tuesday or Wednesday. Their top priorities would be to restore security, ensure the flow of goods and services and prepare for parliamentary and presidential elections, AFP reported.

Leftist politician Godah Abdel Khalek told Reuters on Sunday that he declined an offer to serve as minister of supply in Egypt’s interim government because of personal reasons.

Previously, sources in the transitional administration had said Beblawi would ask Abdel Khalek to return to his post, which had had held for a few months in 2011.

“I was offered the post by Beblawi, but I declined for personal reasons,” he told Reuters.

Talks over the new cabinet come as prosecutors looked at criminal complaints against Mursi and members of his Muslim Brotherhood, which he hails from.

Egypt’s public prosecutor office said it had received complaints accusing Mursi and members of the Muslim Brotherhood of spying, inciting the killings of protesters and damaging the economy.

Al Arabiya’s Cairo correspondent reported that the prosecutor’s office said it was investigating the complaints to allow those accused to be questioned.

Egypt’s legal system allows prosecutors to investigate complaints made by the police or by any member of the public. It can take days or months for formal charges to appear. Prosecutors rarely issue statements based on complaints before charges are filed.

In Egypt, the popularity of Islamism will endure

 Jul 14 2013

How will the Egyptian army's coup against the elected Muslim Brotherhood government affect Islamism, intellectually and politically the most consequential movement in the Middle East since the 1960s? Do the brethren see their fall as a rejection of their religious beliefs? Should they?

Historically, it's impossible to imagine Islamic militancy without the Brotherhood. Founded in 1928 against British imperialism and a rapidly Westernizing Egypt, the Brotherhood became the flagship for Sunni fundamentalism. Secretive but populist, contemptuous of state-paid clergy, intellectually syncretistic (socialism, fascism and European anti-Semitism blended into their "authentic" faith), the brethren became widely popular in Egypt as the army's experimentation with radical Arabism and crony capitalism failed.

The real strength of the Brotherhood movement, along the Nile and beyond, has always been its public faith and private virtue and its appealing historical narrative for Muslims who see the prophet Muhammad as a paragon SEmD a people's greatness flows from moral rectitude. The downfall of the general-turned-president Hosni Mubarak two years ago caught the brethren off guard. Thirty years ago, they opted for coexistence with the security state: Abjuring politics, they focused on missionary and social work. They became "neo-fundamentalists" who envisioned the collapse of the Egyptian police state one convert at a time. With the intense democratic debates among Arab intellectuals that followed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the Iraq war, Islamic fundamentalist movements increasingly adopted a democratic lexicon and started, however tepidly, to struggle with the contradictions between popular sovereignty and the Holy Law.

The brethren's embrace of democratic politics always hinged on an old-fashioned Sunni assumption that the majority of Muslims couldn't be bad Muslims. The recent massive demonstrations in Egypt certainly show that many Egyptians who voted repeatedly for the Brotherhood SEmD in parliamentary elections in 2011 and 2012, in the presidential election last summer and to adopt the new constitution in December SEmD hit the streets against them. This has shocked some of the brethren and provoked Islamists elsewhere to reflect on the intersection of religion and politics.

Although religious tyranny secularizes society (see Christendom/the West), the Brotherhood's "rule" was probably too short, ineffectual (real power remained with Egypt's army and security services) and morally tepid. Women's social status when President Mohammed Morsi fell was about the same as when he was elected. Western "bikini tourism" and easy access to alcohol SEmD controversial issues for Islamic fundamentalists SEmD had not been touched. Tied up in the elemental problems of governing with little authority, the Brotherhood hadn't really formulated, let alone tested, its conception of the "good life."

For the secular opposition, this is a big, and probably lethal, problem. In the Islamic Republic of Iran, religious zeal among the common faithful has been burned out by the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s and three decades of corrupt, oppressive clerical rule. One time Islamists have become trenchant critics of theocracy. Similarly, the appeal of secularism in Iran was widespread in the 1950s and '60s but died slowly under the shah, as a Westernizing dictatorship and the economics of a modern centralized state bulldozed traditional society and kindled a politicized religious awakening. The electoral triumph of Turkey's Islamist-friendly Justice and Development Party was also long in coming, partly because the Turkish military checked the democratic expression of the country's religious hinterland. It is inconceivable that the corrupt and cruel Egyptian army could stage-manage a better evolution to a non-Islamist democracy than had the Turkish army, which was, comparatively, neither corrupt nor cruel.

What the Arab Middle East has not seen since before World War I SEmD when Egypt experienced a brief efflorescence of secular liberalism SEmD is a real competition between Arab liberals and devout Muslims who see politics largely as an extension of their faith. The latter is, unquestionably, still a majority in Egypt. (The Holy Law is the law for most Egyptians, who have been living outside the country's calcified, ineffectual legal system of imported European codes.)

Many young secular Egyptians SEmD and their Western fans SEmD appear not to know this. They imagine having a liberal democracy in which advocates of sharia and the Islamic tradition cannot win an election, write the constitution or otherwise shape society except along secular lines. Westernization has been so successful in Egypt that perhaps a third of the population may no longer share basic cultural mores with the religious majority. Egyptian liberals, and the rest of the intellectually diverse opposition to the Brotherhood, turned to the street and the army SEmD Egypt's real ruler since 1952 SEmD to compete. It's an umbilical relationship that is now unlikely to be broken.

Morsi, an incompetent, boring and inarticulate demagogue, will not return. But Egypt's enormous systemic problems remain. The military may try to jury-rig elections in which the brethren could compete but not triumph. Mindful of recent Turkish history, senior officers will not allow vengeful Islamists to compete, win and neuter the army. Egypt's problems are now the responsibility of the military and Egyptian liberals. The odds are that they will fail abysmally, and in their failure, the Brotherhood and other Islamists will recapture the street.

Egypt's experiment with democracy is probably over. Egyptian secularists may win the next election, but many SEmD probably most - Egyptians will see the vote as illegitimate. Islamism grew strong in Egypt in opposition to unlawful power. Islamists may return to violence SEmD the holy-war arguments advanced by the Brotherhood theologian Sayyid Qutb are more readable now. More likely, the brethren will rally their followers in the streets and return to neo-fundamentalism, biding their time until the Egyptian army cracks. Contrary to what the Facebook liberals proudly boast on Tahrir Square, the game is far from over.

Pakistan Taliban set up camps in Syria, join anti-Assad war

July 14, 2013

ISLAMABAD/PESHAWAR: The Pakistani Taliban have set up camps and sent hundreds of men to Syria to fight alongside rebels opposed to President Bashar al-Assad, militants said on Sunday, in a strategy aimed at cementing ties with al Qaeda's central leadership.

More than two years since the start of the anti-Assad rebellion, Syria has become a magnet for foreign Sunni fighters who have flocked to the Middle Eastern nation to join what they see as a holy war against Shia oppressors.

Operating alongside militant groups such as the al Nusra Front, described by the United States as a branch of al Qaeda, they mainly come from nearby countries such as Libya and Tunisia driven by similar conflict as a result of the Arab Spring.

Egypt's first freely elected leader has been held at an undisclosed location since the army removed him from power on July 3, but has not yet been charged with any crime. In recent days, Washington has called for him to be freed and for the authorities to stop arresting leaders of his Muslim Brotherhood.

Syrian opposition fighters fear ‘side war’ as hostility escalates

14 July 2013

Syrian opposition fighters fear a “side war” with Islamist extremists, a Free Syrian Army official told The Washington Post on Saturday, as new attacks suggest a dangerous increase of infighting between rebel factions.

The assassination on Thursday of an FSA rebel commander by what the rebels are saying was an al-Qaeda gunman has heightened tension between the Western-backed FSA and the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which has extended its influence in rebel-held areas of northern Syria, The Washington Post reported.

“They have a plan to kill the FSA leaders,” Louay al-Mokdad, the FSA’s political and media coordinator, told the newspaper. “We don’t want a side war. We don’t want any battle with them. But if they spill our people’s blood, which is what they are doing, we will have to fight.”

In 'Hidden Jerusalem' Of Aizawl, a Sect Builds 'Solomon's Temple'

Jul 14 2013

Afzal: On a ridge that forms Aizawl’s western boundary, a marble structure rises above the lush green surroundings. Under development for the past two decades, it is spread over 3,025 sq m, has four towers topped with a crown each and four pillars emblazoned with seven Stars of David.

A Christian religious sect calling itself The Holy Church is building here what it calls the ‘Solomon’s Temple’ — a successor to the original Solomon’s Temple of Jerusalem mentioned in the Old Testament, believed to have been built by the son of ancient Israel’s warrior-king David and destroyed by successive invaders. On the site now stands the Muslim shrine of the Dome of the Rock.

The sect believes Mizoram is the Biblical “city in the East”, “the hidden Jerusalem” where, according to prophecy, the resurrected Jesus Christ will dwell before establishing an “eternal kingdom” in present-day Jerusalem.

Turkey parliament curtails army powers

 Jul 14 2013

Turkey's parliament has amended the code governing the armed forces, curtailing their political influence.

The original rules gave the military responsibility of preserving the Republic of Turkey, a clause previously used as a justification for coups.

It now says the army's main duty is to protect the nation from foreign threat.

The military has long regarded itself as the protector of Turkey's secular tradition and has staged three coups between 1960 and 1980.

Iran agrees to take all oil payments from India in rupees

PTI | Jul 14, 2013

NEW DELHI: Iran has agreed to take payments for oil it sells to India entirely in rupees after US and western sanctions blocked all other payment routes.

India has been, since July 2011, paying in euros to clear 55 per cent of its purchases of Iranian oil through Ankara- based Halkbank. The remaining 45 per cent due amount was remitted in rupees in accounts Iranian oil company opened in Kolkata-based Uco Bank.

Payments in euro through Turkey ceased from February 6 this year but the rupee payments for 45 per cent of the purchases continued through Uco Bank, government sources said.

Iran explored taking 55 per cent payments in Russian Rouble and other currencies but the payment routes could not be finalised due sanctions against the Persian Gulf nation.

Sources said Iran has now agreed to take all of their payment in Indian rupees.

As the euro route was blocked and Iran did not indicate an alternate mode of taking payment for 55 per cent of the oil it sold to Indian refiners, over 1.5 billion dollars in dues got accumulated.

More British soldiers and veterans took their own lives in 2012 than died fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan over the same period.

BBC Panorama learned that 21 serving soldiers killed themselves last year, along with 29 veterans.

The Afghanistan death toll was 44, of whom 40 died in action.

Some of the soldiers' families say the men did not get enough support. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said every suicide was a "tragedy".

The Panorama programme obtained the figure of 21 through a Freedom of Information request to the MoD.

Glenn Greenwald told Argentina's La Nacion paper that Snowden, who is currently stranded in Moscow, had only sought to alert people that information they thought was private was being exploited by US intelligence agencies.

“Snowden has enough information to cause more damage to the US government in a minute alone than anyone else has ever had in the history of the United States,” he told the paper in an interview published on Saturday.

Two French journalists kidnapped in Syria ‘alive’

 14 July 2013

Two French journalists kidnapped shortly after arriving in Syria in June are alive and Paris is working for their release, the defense minister said on Sunday.

Didier Francois, 53, a seasoned reporter in trouble spots with Europe 1 radio, and 22-year-old photographer Edouard Elias were taken hostage after being stopped at a checkpoint on the road to Aleppo.

It was unclear who was holding them.

“Every effort is being made to ensure that the conditions for their release can be met very quickly,” Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told journalists.

“We know they are alive and we are stepping up our efforts,” he said. “In the interests of everyone, especially those two, I cannot say any more.”

According to Reporters Without Borders, 24 journalists have been killed and 23 imprisoned since the outbreak of Syria’s civil strife in March 2011.

Pak Christian man gets life term for sending blasphemous SMSs

PTI | Jul 14, 2013

LAHORE: A Christian man in Pakistan's Punjab province has been sentenced to life imprisonment for sending blasphemous mobile phone text messages to some Muslim clerics.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Mian Shahzad Raza of Toba Tek Singh district slapped the sentence and a Rs 2 lakh fine on Sajjad Masih on Saturday.

Masih, a resident of Pakpattan district, was arrested in December 2011 for allegedly sending blasphemous mobile phone messages to Muslim clerics of Gojra in Toba Tek Singh, some 200 kilometres from Lahore.

The judge heard the case in the district jail and handed down the sentence to Masih after several ulemas (clerics) of Gojra testified against him.

A forensic record of the accused's mobile phone messages was also presented in the court.

The court was informed that Masih was engaged to his relative Ruma Masih of Gojra Christian Colony but she contracted marriage with a Christian man living in the UK.

Masih had with him a mobile phone SIM belonging to Ruma and he sent blasphemous messages to the clerics from it.

Police said Masih wanted to land Ruma in trouble to teach her a lesson for her 'betrayal'.

The police initially registered a case against Masih under Section 25-B of the Telegraph Act but then added the controversial blasphemy law to the FIR on the demand of the clerics.

Muslims and clerics of Gojra also pressured police to try Ruma under the blasphemy law.

The police finally succumbed to their pressure and registered a case against her under the law.

On the request of police, the federal interior ministry sought a red corner notice from Interpol for the arrest of Ruma in the UK but she is yet to be traced.

Pakistani police have declared her a 'proclaimed offender' or fugitive.

Zardari may leave Pakistan after completing term as president

ISLAMABAD: Asif Ali Zardari is expected to leave Pakistan after completing his term as president on September 8 due to security threats and fears about the reopening of graft cases, according to a media report on Sunday.

Zardari's friends have advised him to leave Pakistan because of "serious threats to his life", the report on the website of the Dawn newspaper quoted sources close to the President as saying.

Another "core reason" that could force Zardari to leave the country is corruption cases pending against him, the sources said. The Supreme Court has already heard a case about reopening graft cases against Zardari in Switzerland.

Makeshift abode: Kutchi Jamaat Khana - from a wedding centre to a shelter home

July 14, 2013

KARACHI: With worried expressions writ large on their faces, dishevelled women were huddled together reciting the Quran and praying on the rosary in the large halls of Kutchi Muslim Soomra Jamaat Khana in strife-hit Lyari.

Located on an uncharacteristically wide street in an area otherwise known for its maze of narrow lanes, the Jamaat Khana as a community centre has seen happier days when people clad in their best clothes would gather here to celebrate weddings and other festivals. The current spell of violence has, however, turned it into a shelter home for people displaced by the ongoing turf war between the defunct Peoples Amn Committee and the Kutchi community.

Boko Haram Denies Cease-Fire With Nigerian Government

By Ardo Hazzad & Chris Kay

 Jul 14 2013

The leader of the Nigerian Islamist militant group Boko Haram denied that it entered into a cease-fire agreement with the government and endorsed an attack last week on a school in northeast Yobe state.

Abubakar Shekau, in a video message sent to reporters today, denied claims by Nigerian Minister of Special Duties Kabiru Turaki this week that a cease-fire was reached on July 8 after talks with the group’s deputy leader, Mohammed Marwan.

“Let me assure you that we will not enter into any truce with these infidels,” Shekau said. “We will not enter into any truce with the Nigerian government.”

Boko Haram, whose name means “western education is a sin” in the Hausa language, has killed thousands of people in gun and bomb attacks since 2009 in the mainly Muslim north and Abuja in its campaign to establish an Islamic state in Africa’s largest oil producer. Nigeria’s more than 160 million people are roughly split between Christians, predominant in the south, and Muslims, mostly in the north.

S. Sudan fighting could spark ‘ethnic conflict’

14 July 2013

JUBA: Fighting in South Sudan’s Jonglei state, where tribal militia forces are reported to be marching on a rival group, risks spiralling into “outright ethnic conflict,” European diplomats warned Saturday.

Local government officials report that Lou Nuer gunmen from northern Jonglei are heading south toward Pibor, an area of their rivals, the Murle.

Previous such attacks in the troubled eastern region have seen hundreds — if not thousands — of civilians killed.

The joint statement from European ambassadors in South Sudan said they were “extremely concerned about reports of Lou Nuer mobilization and initial clashes with armed Murle youth in Jonglei.”

Time the Christian politicians protected their flock in Malaysia

JULY 14, 2013

These names have several things in common: they are either ministers or deputy ministers in the Najib administration, represent constituencies in Sabah or Sarawak and are Christians.

Yes, they are Catholics, Protestants, Evangelical, and are members of Sidang Injil Borneo but do not expect any of them to lead the charge and defend the position of their faith in public.

Indeed, there is a better chance of there being four seasons in Malaysia than any Christian representative resigning from government on a matter of principle, say, because the administration going back on its word on the use of the word Allah by East Malaysians. Or even taking the fight to right-wing groups who in the past few years have threatened Christians.

Bishop calls for Najib to take stand against Perkasa, Jati

BY ELIZABETH ZACHARIAH

July 14, 2013

Najib, seen here at a Christmas party last year, must stand up to the extreme comments from groups like Perkasa and Jati, say local Christian leaders. The Malaysian Insider pic, July 13, 2013.

Christians have had enough of the bashing from the likes of Perkasa and other Malay rights groups. They expect Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to intervene and “do the right thing” by rejecting such extremism.

This was the stand of the president of the Council of Churches Malaysia, Bishop Philip Lok. He was speaking to The Malaysian Insider in the wake of the demands by Perkasa and Jati that the Vatican’s envoy Archbishop Joseph Marino withdraw his support for the local church’s campaign to use the word Allah and that he must apologise within seven days.

The vocal rights groups have demanded that the government shut down the Vatican’s embassy and banish Marino if he does not apologise.

US recced Abbottabad during flood relief ops for Osama hunt?

Islamabad : Did US pilots use flood relief operations in Pakistan in 2010 to obtain terrain information about Abbottabad that lead to the covert raid that killed Osama bin Laden?

The Pakistani Commission that probed the presence of the slain al-Qaeda chief in the country thinks it could be a distinct possibility.

In the report, leaked by Al Jazeera channel, the commission notes that there was no presence of the Pakistan army in the areas over which the US mission entered Pakistan's airspace and flew all the way to Abbottabad on May 2, 2011 where they killed the elusive terrorist mastermind.

Judge to mull if airlines owe World Trade Center owners over 9/11

AP | Jul 14, 2013

NEW YORK: A judge who has presided over most of the litigation stemming from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks will decide whether the owners of the World Trade Center can try to make aviation companies pay billions of dollars in damages.

US district judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said he will announce his decision immediately after hearing several witnesses and listening to arguments in a nonjury trial starting Monday and expected to last three days.

The trial will decide whether World Trade Center Properties and its affiliates can receive more than the $4.9 billion in insurance proceeds they have already recovered since the Sept. 11 attacks by terrorists who hijacked commercial airliners and flew them into the 110-story twin towers. The attacks led to the destruction of the towers as well as a third trade center building.

Countries seek to bring home Guantanamo detainees

AP | Jul 13, 2013

WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama's renewed push to close the Guantanamo Bay prison for terrorism suspects has given a glimmer of hope to foreign governments that he will fulfill that promise and triggered diplomatic maneuvering from US allies eager to bring home long-held detainees.

Kuwait has hired lobbyists to help bring its two remaining prisoners home. British Prime Minister David Cameron personally pressed Obama at the Group of 8 summit last month to release the United Kingdom's final detainee. And the fate of Afghans being held at the US military prison in Cuba has been at the forefront of peace talks between the US, Taliban and Afghanistan.

Afghanistan's women wary as Taliban creeps back into political life

By Sohel Uddin, Producer, NBC News

 Jul 14 2013

KABUL, Afghanistan -- As American and NATO forces prepare to withdraw from Afghanistan by the end of next year, some fear the Afghan government's efforts to bring the Taliban into the political fold may mean a step back in time for the country's women.

After the U.S.-led Operation Enduring Freedom toppled the militant Taliban regime 12 years ago, girls' schools reopened, burqas were no longer compulsory and many women went back to work. So when the Afghan government last week appointed a former Taliban official as a commissioner on the newly established independent human rights commission, many were shocked.

Abdul Rahman Hotak, nominated for the post by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, was the editor of Taliban newspaper "Afghan Sunrise" and worked for the group's education directorate during its rule – an alarming choice, some say, for someone tasked with championing the rights of women who were denied so many freedoms under the Taliban.
