Love Is Divine
Share Love And Mercy,
Fight Hate And Fear!

Mankind Was One Community,
Devil Sowed Seeds of Disunity
Resulting In Apartheid.

(M. Javed Naseem)

“And hold fast, all together, by the rope which
Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided
among yourselves; and remember with gratitude
Allah's favor on you; for you were enemies and
He joined your hearts in love, so that by His
Grace, you became brethren; and you were on
the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you
from it. Thus does Allah make His Signs clear
to you, that you may be guided.”
(al-Quran 3:103)

Man was created by the Almighty God as a very intelligent creature but at the same time weak enough to surrender to desire and temptation. A qualifying point of merit was established and it was declared that anybody who reached that point in his/her life was the real human being in front of whom the angel prostrated. That merit level (or point) is called ‘righteousness’. A human will be judged on that scale, here in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. ‘The higher the level of righteousness, the higher the place (reward) in paradise’, was the measure set to judge us.

Unfortunately, with the exception of a few, we failed this test each and every time – meaning during every Prophet’s time and reign. Man has become a beast and with a little bit of power, authority or money, becomes a tyrant forgetting God and His creation. We humans always suffer at the hands of other humans. Why? Because we don’t abide by the principles of honesty and integrity. We always violate other people’s rights due to selfishness and greed. We don’t give others the same rights we enjoy!

Bible: The Golden Rule:
“Therefore, whatever you want men to do
to you, do also to them, for this is the
Law and the Prophets.”
(Matthew 7:12).

Mankind is like one family, one community, one nation. It’s only a small group of evil-spirited people who want the hegemony of the world for its wealth and natural resources. They are spreading hate and Islamophobia to divide and conquer nations. Allah says in the Quran:

“Verily, this brotherhood of yours
is a single brotherhood, and I am
your Lord and Cherisher. Therefore,
serve Me (and no other).”
(al-Quran 21:92)

There are people holding the positions of power, authority and influence who are not well-educated. They don’t understand the purpose of their creation and the value of humanity. They want control and power. These are the evil people who spread hate, racism, discrimination, Islamophobia or apartheid. They are everywhere! The dishonest biased Zionist media is supporting their hate campaign for money. They are the Devil’s disciples and Prophet Jesus talked about them.

Prophet Jesus said:
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin,
and have neglected the weightier matters of the
law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought
to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
(Matthew 23:23).

People say that difference of opinion is healthy. Well, it is healthy as long as it stays with the people holding the opinion and does not spread. If it spreads, it creates disunity resulting in chaos and sectarianism. Different opinions should be heard and discussed in order to reach a decision but once a decision is reached, all people should respect it and abide by it. Other opinions should be buried at that point.

Difference of opinion is fine but division,
disunity and sectarianism come from the
teachings of the Devil; and the disciples or
friends of Devil keep promoting it. Even
after centuries of bloodshed, apartheid
and wars, man did not learn how to live
with peace and harmony in a society!


The Quran says:
“The Believers are but a single brotherhood; so make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that you may receive Mercy.” – (al-Quran 49:10

The Bible says:
“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” (James 3:17).

“Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.” (1-Peter 3:8-9).

“Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.” (Proverbs 3:3-4).

Love is an ocean with no limits and if you drown in it, you’ll live forever – in the hearts of others whom you loved. You can’t see love, just like you can’t see Allah. But you can feel love the same way you can feel Allah everywhere. Allah is infinite Love and Mercy. And if you have these virtues in your heart, you are blessed because they come from Him. It also means that you are connected with the Infinite.

Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:
The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: “He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully.” – (Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, No.42).

Love and mercy originate from Allah. We, being His creation, need love and mercy not only from Him but also from the fellow human beings. This is something that binds us together. Our children also need love, affection and special attention – actually more than the adults. So, bring up your children with honesty, integrity, sense of responsibility, love for all, sympathy for the poor and the needy.

According to a Hadith, narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle kissed Hassan bin Ali while Aqra bin Habis Al-Tamim was sitting beside him. Aqra said,
“I have ten children and I have never kissed anyone of them.”
Allah’s Apostle cast a look at him and said: “Whoever is not merciful to others will not be treated mercifully.” – (Bukhari, Vol 8, Book 73, No.26).

The Bible says:
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall
obtain mercy.” – (Matthew 5:7).

In this world, we need each other. We need love to survive. Each one of us is given a gift box filled with unconditional love from our children, family members, friends and Allah. There is simply no other possession more precious to hold than this. Do we appreciate and give thanks to the Almighty for that?

“Lo, your Lord is full of bounty for mankind,
but most of them do not give thanks.”
(al-Quran 27:73)

SYRIA: THE PIPELINE WAR. The Evil Empire Is Deceiving The World (Part 2 of 2)

Wake Up People!
(Part 2/2)

Syria: The Pipeline War
The Evil Empire Is
Deceiving The World Again!

“A damning 2008 Pentagon-funded
Rand report recommended using
‘covert action, information operations,
unconventional warfare’ to enforce
a ‘divide-and-rule’ strategy.”

(M. Javed Naseem)

The ‘Triangle of Evil’ (US-UK-Israel) is ruling the world with tactics like violence, bloodshed, invasions, illegal wars and constant fear of an unseen enemy. They are using the mainstream media (MSM) to spread lies, disinformation, distorted truth and fake news. They support their view with fabricated stories, fake news, fake videos and fake terrorists. They are spending billions of dollars on their propaganda projects. The sole agenda is the hegemony of the world. The only hurdle they see in the promotion of their vicious agenda, is the educated, aware and awake citizen in their own countries and Islam or Muslims on the international stage as the wars are being waged in those oil/gas-rich Muslim countries causing death and destruction.

The Oil Pipeline War

“The CIA began its active meddling in Syria
in 1949. …Syrian patriots had declared war
on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French
colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist
democracy based on the American model. But
in March 1949, Syria’s democratically elected
president, Shukri-al-Quwatli, hesitated to
approve the Trans-Arabian Pipeline, an
American project. In retaliation, the CIA
engineered a coup replacing al-Quwatli with
the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted
swindler named Husni al-Za’im.”

In the Muslim Middle Eastern countries, the Western campaign is to kill two birds with one stone, i.e., capture the natural resources, oil and gas, and kill the opposition brutally to spread fear so that others don’t dare to stand up to them. So far, they have been successful in their evil mission as they are getting all the help and cooperation from the stooges and puppets they have installed in all Arab countries. Those Arab leaders who don’t submit (like Saddam Hussain, Moammer Gaddafi, etc.), are eliminated in cold blood, mafia style. They are destroying the rich Arab countries one by one to take control of the world energy sources and at the same time facilitate the greater Israel which is their evil arm in the Middle East. Now they are going all-out for President Assad of Syria. They have almost destroyed Syria and the little hindrance they are facing is coming from Russia. But that would also be removed by the final agreement to divide Syria. Then it would be for Iran and Saudi Arabia to face the music.

The end of the modern Muslim world is approaching. But the Evil Empire does not know that the real Muslim leaders would emerge from the ruins and they wouldn’t be able to buy them or scare them with any fear tactics or terrorism. The War of Badr would be repeated but on the modern level and scale. The real Jews know this from the predictions recorded in their religious books. But the fake Khazarian Jews of Israel don’t accept that and are trying to eliminate the chances with preemptive attacks.

Pipeline War Continues

“In 2009 Assad announced that he would refuse to sign
the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria
“to protect the interests of our Russian ally”. Soon
after that, the CIA began funding opposition groups in
Syria. It is important to note that this was well before
the Arab Spring-engendered uprising against Assad.”


ZeroHedge adds:
Excerpt from Tyler Durden’s article:
‘The Oil-Gas War Over Syria’

Qatar is a Sunni gas-powerhouse and wants to become the main supplier of gas there, and Saudi Arabia is a Sunni oil-powerhouse, which wants to become the major supplier of oil, but Saudi oil and Qatari gas would be pipelined through secular-controlled (Assad's) Syria, and this is why the U.S. and its fundamentalist-Sunni allies, the Sauds, and Qataris, are using Al Qaeda and other jihadists to conquer enough of a strip through Syria so that U.S. companies such as Halliburton will be able safely to place pipelines there, to be marketed in Europe by U.S. firms such as Exxon. Iran also wants to pipeline its gas through Syria, and this is one reason why Iran is defending Syria’s government, against the U.S.-Saudi-Qatari-jihadist invasion, which is trying to overthrow and replace Assad.

Here are the most-informative of Anadolu’s war-maps:
The first (map) presents the effort by many countries to eliminate ISIS control over the large Iraqi city of Mosul. A remarkably frank remark made in this map is "An escape corridor into Syria will be left for Daesh [ISIS] so they can vacate Mosul" - an admission that the U.S. - Saudi - Qatari team want the ISIS jihadists who are in Mosul to relocate into Syria to assist the U.S. - Saudi - Qatari effort there to overthrow and replace the Assad government.

In addition, there is the following map from
That map shows the competing Shia (Russia-backed) and Sunni (U.S.-backed) gas-pipelines into Europe — the central issue in the invasion and defense of Syria).

The Triangle of Evil and its Zionist supporters always claimed (to deceive the world) that Osama bin Laden was killing people, so they killed him. Then they claimed that Saddam was killing Iraqi people, and they killed Saddam. Then they claimed that Gaddafi was a menace as he was killing Libyan people, and they butchered Gaddafi and his loyalists. Now they are repeating the same old song and claiming that Assad is killing the Syrians. They have been trying to kill him too but so far no luck. The U.N. never asked them that if Assad was killing the Syrians, what are they doing in that country with troops and militia mercenaries? Whom are they killing? They are killing innocent Syrian civilians too. Their fake claim, that they have come to liberate people from the tyrant (same rhetoric for Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya), is a mere deception; and the world knows now. If they love innocent civilians so much, why don’t they go to Palestine and liberate the Palestinian victims of Israeli aggression? They are the tyrants and they promote terrorism in those countries. They are part of the problem – the major part! They are fully exposed now and can’t fool informed people. See the following chart to know how many countries are involved in the bloodshed there.

Who can you trust to tell the truth?

All this raises the question of whom to believe. Those trying to overthrow the Syrian government have waged almost incredibly sophisticated and effective propaganda warfare right from the beginning, so there is conflicting “evidence” on many of the critical events. But I believe a great deal of the “evidence” dished out by the mainstream media was actually fabricated by the terrorists.
I have identified sources that seem to me credible, for example, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.; Australian professor Tim Anderson; commentator and analyst Sharmine Narwani (all, and others, quoted below); and Father Frans van der Lugt, a Dutch Jesuit priest who was murdered in Homs, Syria in early 2014. Father van der Lugt wrote in January 2012:

Most of the citizens of Syria do not support the opposition. Even a country like Qatar [which had spent billions to finance foreign terrorists in Syria] has stated this following an opinion survey. Therefore, you also cannot say that this is a popular uprising. The majority of people are not part of the rebellion and certainly not part of the armed rebellion. What is occurring is, above all, a struggle between the army and armed Sunni groups that aim to overturn the Alawite regime and take power.
“From the start the protest movements were not purely peaceful. From the start I saw armed demonstrators marching along in the protests, who began to shoot at the police first. Very often the violence of the security forces has been a reaction to the brutal violence of the armed rebels.


U.S. interference in the domestic affairs of Syria began in 1949. The details are reported in an excellent article by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Mr. Kennedy provides a great many important facts and comments and also identifies many of his sources, which I skip here for the sake of brevity. I quote only a few paragraphs for historical background and context.

Mr. Kennedy is no fan of Bashar al Assad and refers to him in uncomplimentary terms. But he clearly explains the motives of the governments that want to overthrow the Assad government, mainly Assad’s refusal to allow the construction of a pipeline through Syria for the transport of natural gas to Europe, a project desired by Qatar and its Gulf and Western allies.

From Robert F. Kennedy, Jr,
‘Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria’,
(March 1, 2016)

In part because my father was murdered by an Arab, I’ve made an effort to understand the impact of U.S. policy in the Mid-East and particularly the factors that sometimes motivate bloodthirsty responses from the Islamic world against our country.

“… During the 1950s, President Eisenhower and the Dulles brothers — CIA Director Allen Dulles and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles — rebuffed Soviet treaty proposals to leave the Middle East a neutral zone in the Cold War and let Arabs rule Arabia. Instead, they mounted a clandestine war against Arab nationalism … particularly when Arab self-rule threatened oil concessions. …”

“The CIA began its active meddling in Syria in 1949. …Syrian patriots had declared war on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist democracy based on the American model. But in March 1949, Syria’s democratically elected president, Shukri-al-Quwatli, hesitated to approve the Trans-Arabian Pipeline, an American project. In retaliation, the CIA engineered a coup replacing al-Quwatli with the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted swindler named Husni al-Za’im.”

“…The Syrian people again tried democracy in 1955, re-electing al-Quwatli and his National Party. Al-Quwatli was still a Cold War neutralist, but, stung by American involvement in his ouster, he now leaned toward the Soviet camp. That posture caused CIA Director Dulles to send his two coup wizards, Kim Roosevelt and Rocky Stone, to Damascus. But CIA money failed to corrupt the Syrian military officers. The soldiers reported the CIA’s bribery attempts to the Ba’athist regime. In response, the Syrian army invaded the American Embassy, taking Stone prisoner. After harsh interrogation, Stone made a televised confession of his roles in the Iranian coup and the CIA’s aborted attempt to overthrow Syria’s legitimate government. The Eisenhower White House hollowly dismissed Stone’s confession as “fabrications” and “slanders,” a denial swallowed whole by the American press, led by the New York Times and believed by the American people. …”

“Of course, the Russians, who sell 70 percent of their gas exports to Europe, viewed the Qatar/Turkey pipeline as an existential threat. In 2009, Assad announced that he would refuse to sign the agreement to allow the pipeline to run through Syria “to protect the interests of our Russian ally.” Soon after that, the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria. It is important to note that this was well before the Arab Spring-engendered uprising against Assad.”

Bashar Assad’s family is Alawite, a Muslim sect widely perceived as aligned with the Shiite camp. Before the war started, according to (journalist Seymour) Hersh, Assad was moving to liberalize the country. Assad’s regime was deliberately secular and Syria was impressively diverse. The Syrian government and military, for example, were 80 percent Sunni. Assad maintained peace among his diverse peoples by a strong, disciplined army loyal to the Assad family.

“By the spring of 2011, there were small, peaceful demonstrations in Damascus against repression by Assad’s regime. However, WikiLeaks cables indicate that the CIA was already on the ground in Syria. The idea of fomenting a Sunni-Shiite civil war to weaken the Syrian and Iranian regimes (and thus) to maintain control of the region’s petrochemical supplies was not a novel notion. A damning 2008 Pentagon-funded Rand report (had) recommended using “covert action, information operations, unconventional warfare” to enforce a “divide and rule” strategy.”

“Two years before ISIL throat cutters stepped on the world stage, a seven-page August 12, 2012, study by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, obtained by the right-wing group Judicial Watch, warned that … “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI (Al-Qaeda Iraq, now ISIS), are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” Using U.S. and Gulf state funding, these groups had turned the peaceful protests against Bashar Assad toward “a clear sectarian (Shiite vs. Sunni) direction.”

Not coincidentally, the regions of Syria occupied by the Islamic State exactly encompass the proposed route of the Qatari pipeline. (Emphasis added.)

“… Beginning in 2011, our allies funded the invasion by AQI [Al-Qaeda Iraq] fighters into Syria. In April 2013, having entered Syria, AQI changed its name to ISIL. According to Dexter Filkins of the New Yorker, “ISIS is run by a council of former Iraqi generals. … Many are members of Saddam Hussein’s secular Ba’ath Party who converted to radical Islam in American prisons.” …
But then, in 2014, our Sunni proxies horrified the American people by severing heads and driving a million refugees toward Europe. …”

Tim Anderson’s Book:
The Dirty War on Syria

A professor in Australia has written a book that tells the whole story in depth. Tim Anderson’s The Dirty War on Syria: Washington, Regime Change and Resistance can be ordered at resistance-pdf/. You can read the introductory chapter and table of contents at: .


The U.S. effort to undermine Assad, and to overthrow his government and replace it with one more friendly to U.S. and Western investors, was to be the latest installment of the overall U.S. program, pursued consistently since the end of World War II, to control the world in the interests of U.S. elites, including the military-industrial complex, multinational corporations generally and their investors, and the hegemony-hungry political leadership. To summarize the situation briefly, this graphic is from Prof. Anderson’s preface to his book:

The Dirty War On Syria:
(Further excerpts from the preface)

“… The British-Australian journalist Philip Knightley pointed out that war propaganda typically involves ‘a depressingly predictable pattern’ of demonizing the enemy leader, then demonizing the enemy people through atrocity stories, real or imagined (Knightley 2001). Accordingly, a mild-mannered eye doctor called Bashar al Assad became the ‘new evil’ in the world and, according to consistent western media reports, the Syrian Army did nothing but kill civilians for more than four years. To this day, many imagine the Syrian conflict is a ‘civil war’, a ‘popular revolt’ or some sort of internal sectarian conflict. …”

“… After the demonization of Syrian leader Bashar al Assad began, a virtual information blockade was constructed against anything which might undermine the wartime storyline. Very few sensible Western perspectives on Syria emerged after 2011, as critical voices were effectively blacklisted…”

More from:
Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria?
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, (quoted above)

What is the answer? … Using the same imagery and language that supported our 2003 war against Saddam Hussein, our political leaders led Americans to believe that our Syrian intervention is an idealistic war against tyranny, terrorism and religious fanaticism. … But only when we see this conflict as a proxy war over a pipeline do events become comprehensible. … The million refugees now flooding into Europe are refugees of a pipeline war and CIA blundering. …

“… Let’s face it; what we call the “war on terror” is really just another oil war. We’ve squandered $6 trillion on three wars abroad and on constructing a national security warfare state at home since oilman Dick Cheney declared the “Long War” in 2001. The only winners have been the military contractors and oil companies that have pocketed historic profits, the intelligence agencies that have grown exponentially in power and influence to the detriment of our freedoms and the jihadists who invariably used our interventions as their most effective recruiting tool. We have compromised our values, butchered our own youth, killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people, subverted our idealism and squandered our national treasures in fruitless and costly adventures abroad.”

“… Over the past seven decades, the Dulles brothers, the Cheney gang, the neo-cons and their ilk have … deployed our military and intelligence apparatus to serve the mercantile interests of large corporations and particularly, the petroleum companies and military contractors that have literally made a killing from these conflicts.”

Wake Up People!
(Part 1 of 2)

The Evil Empire Is Spreading
Chaos, Death & Destruction.
You Might Be Next!

Truth About Syrian Crisis:
Who Is Responsible For
Bloodshed And Destruction?

(M. Javed Naseem)

“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it
happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt


A powerful group (Elite) of evil-doers have joined hands in their pursuit of hegemony of the world. They are responsible for creating only one ‘super-power’ by stripping the word ‘super’ (along with all its attributes) from other nations. Now, this super-power has become an ‘Evil Empire’ and the Elite are using it to play havoc in the world, killing millions of civilians, children, women, elderly, bombing cities, hospitals, schools and blockading food supplies, water and electricity. They want the total control of world’s wealth and natural resources (oil & gas).

This Elite group springs from the inner-circle members of the Bilderbergs (BB), Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and Tri-lateral Commission (TC). These evil-spirited people have been conspiring to politically and economically dominate the entire world under their New World Order, more recently called Globalization, or Global Union, Global Economy, Global Order, Global Environment, and like terms. When President G.W.Bush (Sr.) used the term New World Order in several of his speeches, it aroused suspicion and concern among the public. So, the Elite selected a generic term ‘Globalization’ to use, and now Americans are no longer alarmed because the business world uses this term daily, so it must not be so frightening. It is like a mild or lesser evil. But an evil is an evil, lesser or greater! We are still talking about the New World Order.

This Elite group creates chaos, sponsors terrorism, controls world drug production and trading, exports wars, invades other countries, promotes and militarily helps guerilla groups or parallel governments in the world, and exports arms and ammunitions both legally and illegally to the hot-spots of the world. Israel is their arm which is stretching all over the Middle East and beyond.

Don’t be fooled by the Shia-Sunni game of the West in Syria. 80% of Syrian army are Sunnis. Assad is not mainstream Shia. He is an Alawite (this sect only leans towards Shiaism, not hardcore Shia).

“Almost all the atrocities blamed on the Syrian
Army have been committed by Western-backed
Islamists, as part of their strategy to attract more
foreign military backing. Their claims are repeated
by the Western media, fed by partisan Islamist
sources and amplified by embedded ‘watchdogs’,
including Amnesty International and
Human Rights Watch.”


I am shocked to see the ignorant (Jaahil) people from Pakistan, India and Arab countries posting on the internet (FB, Twitter or Google) the material that is totally fabricated by the Zionist media as anti-Muslim propaganda. They are promoting the Zionist agenda that Saddam Hussain was bad and killed his own people. They used Shia-Sunni game plan and killed Saddam. Then they started claiming that Gaddafi was bad and was killing his own people. So they killed Gaddafi too. Now they are claiming that Assad of Syria is bad and he is killing his own people. They are using the Sia-Sunni weapon again. They want to eliminate him. They did the same thing in Afghanistan to their own man Osama bin Laden and killed him. They sponsored Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Boca Haram, al-Shabab, Daesh, ISIS/ISIL or IS, and now so-called Syrian rebels. The Zionists are using Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Turkey and Iraq for that purpose.

Remember! Any political agenda that comes from Saudi Arabia or UAE is actually indirectly coming from Israel and America. Don’t promote or share it. You will be held responsible and collaborating with the Evil on the Day of Judgment!

Here are some hard facts about Syrian crisis, created by the West. Syria never invaded any country, therefore, all foreign troops or mercenaries in Syria, sponsored by the West, are illegal infiltrators, terrorists and invaders. Only Syrian people have the right to elect or change their government, nobody or no country else! Period.


“No foreign officials might determine the future
of Syria, the future of Syria’s political system
or the individuals who should govern Syria.
This is the Syrian peoples’ decision.”
-- Bashar al Assad, (2015)


Don’t be fooled by the horrible bloody pictures of kids and others. They are mostly killed by the Western troops and their hired mercenaries, not by Assad -- same pattern like Taliban and Daesh or ISIS. If Assad was killing his own people and destroying his own country, where would he rule then?

What’s Really Happening in Syria:
Who Started the War, Who Can You Trust to Tell the Truth?

The U.S./NATO line

If you try to follow events in the mainstream media (MSM), you may have noticed that they routinely refer to Syrian president Bashar al Assad as a “brutal dictator”. Assad is supposed to have responded to peaceful protests with repressive violence and by “killing his own people”. The U.S., UK, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar continue to maintain that “Assad must go”.
I disagree with all of that, as I’ll explain in this article.

I spent 25 years prosecuting lies in commerce for the attorneys general of New York and Oregon. I prepared this primer to help you cut through the lies and get at the truth about Syria.
It’s still quite possible that a nuclear war could arise from careless U.S./NATO confrontations with Russia in Syria. President-elect Trump has indicated he favors a cooperative relationship with Russia, but he will face continuing pressure from the Deep State, neo-cons, and apparently, the media, to continue the New Cold War that was initiated in Ukraine. And the demonizing of Russian president Putin and of Russia itself has been going on for some time and shows no sign of letting up.1 So in addition to the suffering of the Syrian people, which has been horrific and continues as I write, the conflict in Syria also poses a serious threat to all of us.

International law, morality, and the sovereignty of the people

Since Syria has not threatened the United States in any way, let alone attacked us, our government has no right to try to overthrow the Syrian government. The UN Charter prohibits pre-emptive aggression against other sovereign states unless the UN Security Council authorizes it. The United States signed the UN Charter, so as a treaty, it is the “Supreme Law of the Land” under Article VI of the U.S. Constitution. So the U.S. attempt to overthrow the government of Syria violates U.S. as well as international law.page1image21488 page1image21648
The effort to overthrow the Syrian government is also immoral, because of the suffering and death it has caused and because of its destabilizing effect, which causes even more suffering and death and has assisted the rise of ISIS.

The effort to overthrow Assad is an arrogant interference with the sovereignty of the Syrian people, who have a right to choose their own government. In this case, they have chosen their government overwhelmingly: Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad is not only the democratically elected leader of his country but has at all times, both before the violence began and throughout the conflict, been immensely popular within Syria. This popularity would be impossible to explain if the violence that began in March 2011 was initiated by the government. I try to show here that the violence was initiated by elements who pushed aside peaceful protestors and committed a great many murders and then managed, through manipulation of the big media, to blame that on the Syrian government.

The Syrian government

Although the effort to overthrow the Syrian government is unlawful, many Americans seem to feel it’s okay to interfere with foreign governments that are said to oppress their own people. I don’t claim that the Syrian government is perfect, but again, it’s up to the Syrian people to choose their government.

In the years before the present conflict began in 2011, the Syrian government tried to institute constitutional reforms, thus becoming less repressive. But that effort has been undermined by the attempt to overthrow it by force and violence.

Sectarian vs. secular government; not a civil war

A basic conflict is between those who want a sectarian (religious) government, which would also be repressive, in different ways, and a secular (nonreligious) government, such as Syria now has. The conflict in Syria has never been a war between competing Islamic sects, or even a civil war. Rather, it is a war waged by some Syrian rebels and a great many foreigners, who want to overthrow the legitimate government and, with it, Syria’s secular, inclusive and tolerant society and to establish a radical Islamic government and society. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and the U.S. itself have been backing those extremists as part of their effort to dominate the Middle East and control its energy resources.
In late September, a U.S.-Russia agreement called for the supposedly “moderate rebels” in Syria to separate themselves from al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front (sometimes called al Qaeda’s Syrian “franchise”. (Al Qaeda, as you may recall, is the organization formerly led by Osama bin Laden that is said to have brought down the Twin Towers in New York). The U.S. and Russia would then cooperate in attacking the Nusra Front and ISIS (also known as ISIL, or Daesh).

Unless you’re a terrorist, what’s not to like about such an agreement? Well, the problem was that the “moderate rebels” refused to follow the U.S.-Russia agreement and separate from the terrorists, and instead renewed their alliance with them. In particular, Nour al-Din al-Zinki– reportedly one of the largest factions in Aleppo–said they were joining a broad alliance dominated by the Nusra Front.
Nour al-Din al-Zinki recently filmed themselves taunting and then beheading a 12-year-old boy.
I’ve seen one of the photos of the boy circulated by al-Zinki, and the image haunts me. He doesn’t even look 12 years old; I would guess 10 or 11. He has what looks like intra-venous tubing hanging from one arm; I understand he’d been receiving medical treatment when he was kidnapped. He was taunted by a group of men, who then laid him face-down in the back of a pickup truck, tied his hands behind his back, and as he whimpered, one of them ran a large knife across his throat and cut off his head.

You won’t know what to make of this suggestion, if you think most Syrians are trying to get out of their country and go to Europe. Media sensationalism and inadequate reporting, or suppression of the truth, about the “immigrant crisis” faced by many European countries may give you that impression. But in fact, as reported by Tim Anderson (in The Dirty War on Syria, Chapter 14), most Syrians have chosen to remain in Syria under the protection of their government and Army:

Fact check one: There never were any ‘moderate rebels’. A … genuine political reform movement was displaced by a Saudi-backed Islamist insurrection, over March- April 2011. … Years later ordinary Syrians call all these groups ‘Daesh’ (ISIS), ‘terrorists’ or ‘mercenaries’, not bothering with the different brand names.

Fact check two: almost all the atrocities blamed on the Syrian Army have been committed by western-backed Islamists, as part of their strategy to attract more foreign military backing. Their claims are repeated by the western media, fed by partisan Islamist sources and amplified by embedded ‘watchdogs’, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. The Syrian Army has indeed executed captured terrorists, and the secret police continue to detain and probably mistreat those suspected of collaborating with terrorists. But this is an army which enjoys very strong public support. Syrian people know their enemy and back their Army. The armed gangs, on the other hand, openly boast of their atrocities.

AL-QURAN: God's Prescription For A Sick Society.

God’s Prescription
For A Sick Society

(M. Javed Naseem)

Man, under the influence of Satan, distorted God’s message through his evil ways; corrupted the truth with falsehood; and misinterpreted God’s commands in every era. But eventually, it was truth that prevailed. Truth always prevails because truth comes from Allah and lies (or falsehood) from Satan (Devil). Devil buries the truth under the filthy heap of dung so that nobody cares to dig it out. The dirty work demands a lot of patience, sacrifice, hard work and guidance. There are not many who want to do that digging. It requires the digger to be an honest, sincere believer and a true seeker who is ready to give all in the cause of Allah. Presently, Muslim Ummah is in dire straits and desperately needs such diggers.

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said that when there is too much of ‘Haraam’ – corruption and evil practices – in a society and the people, who hold responsible positions (and are capable) of stopping that, do nothing about it, that society should wait for ‘azaab-Allah’ – the wrath of God.
That means that evil-doing and corruption bring punishment from God, the Almighty. That is a very natural course. If we open the Holy Quran, we’ll find the stories of previous nations who rejected the message of Allah, deviated from the right path and rebelled against the Laws of Allah. They were warned and then wiped off the land as if they never existed. The nations of Aad, Thamud, Noah, Nimrod, Lot, Shuaib, Pharaoh, etc., they all became part of the history and a lesson for the mankind. Allah says:

“We destroyed the generations before you
when they did wrong; and their messengers
(from Allah) came unto them with clear
proofs (of His sovereignty), but they
would not believe. Thus do we reward
the guilty folk.”
(al-Quran 10:13)

But did the mankind really learn any lesson? Today, we are in the same situation once again. Allah has extended the leash, given us plenty of time to repent and change our ways, but nothing has improved. On the contrary, the only change that we see, is the change for the worse – ‘Haraam’ is spreading. We are chasing an illusion. We have ignored all warnings and have arrogantly defied the commands of Allah.

The righteous few, the friends of Allah, have already received the signals of the punishment which is almost at our doorsteps. Now, it is just a matter of weeks or months. O Ummah! Wake up, it is coming! Can we still not see it? Then we must be blind, deaf and dumb! Prepare yourself for a rude awakening!

“Many of the Jinn and humankind we have
committed to Hell. They have hearts wherewith
they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not,
and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like
cattle, nay more misguided; for they are
heedless (of warning).”
(al-Quran 7:179)

We have made our choices. We have sowed the seeds of injustice and corruption; the seeds of evil and transgression; and now is the time to harvest. We shall reap what we have sowed, that is the law of nature. If that happened to the nations of the old, it can happen to us too. We are NO exception!

I named my first book “A Wake-up Call” and I was going to name this one as “The Last Call” but I changed my mind. It can’t be the last call; there is always hope! We have seen the warning signs – the fires, floods, storms and hurricanes, tsunamis and earthquakes. But we didn’t budge. Luckily, the door of repentance is still open. There is very little time left but there’s still a chance. It might be the last chance!

Satan was cursed because of his arrogance (and disobedience) and was destined to Hell. We are guilty of the same crime. Allah warned us not to follow him as he was an open enemy to us.

"Did I not enjoin on you, O you children of
Adam, that you should not worship Satan;
for he was to you an enemy avowed?”
(al-Quran 36:60)

It is a pity that we don’t listen to Allah but listen and follow the Devil. Allah is the Truth and the Devil is a lie – full of deception. Allah wants us to go to Heaven but Devil leads us to Hell because he is destined to Hell and wants to take as many humans along with him as possible. He wants to prove his point to God that humans are more disobedient to God than he was. The irony is that we accompany the Devil willingly. Are we not concerned about the consequences of disobedience to Allah? We can become the fuel for Hellfire! And Allah knows about us:

“Most of them We found not men (true)
to their covenant; but most of them
We found rebellious and disobedient.”
(al-Quran 7:102)

Disobedience merits punishment. Rebellion against Allah cannot go unpunished. Every rebel and disobedient was destroyed. Satan is the only one who got respite till the Day of Judgment. O Muslim Ummah! Don’t be so ignorant and arrogant! Learn from the history of mankind!

“Have they not seen how many generations
We destroyed before them, which indeed
returned not unto them?”
(al-Quran 36:31)

If we continue on the path of evil and injustice, it is not very difficult to predict the results. We are fortunate that the wrath of Allah did not hit us, in full swing, yet. We had only small scale warnings. Feel the urgency, please! Now is the time to revert. Let us repent and ask Allah for His mercy and forgiveness! We might still be saved from the bigger disaster.
Here is Allah’s prescription for our salvation and prosperity:

“O you who believe! Bow down and prostate
yourselves, and worship your Lord, and do
good, that haply you may prosper.”
(al-Quran 22:77)

“… So establish regular prayer, give regular
charity, and hold fast to Allah! He is your
Protector - the Best to protect and
the Best to help!”
(al-Quran 22:78)

Allah’s help and guidance is there for us but it comes to those only who seek it and strive for it. A mother does not feed her baby unless the baby cries. Here is a recipe to seek Allah’s help:

“O you who believe! Seek (Allah’s) help
with patient perseverance and prayer; for
Allah is with those who patiently persevere.”
(al-Quran 2:153)

Patient perseverance means steadfastness. It is the basic requisite of Islam. You believe in Allah, obey His commands, His messengers, and keep doing the right things; then ask for Allah’s mercy and forgiveness. He will surely bless you; but He will also test your faith, your honesty, your sincerity, i.e., your steadfastness. If you stay the course, of course with His help, you will be blessed. It is hard but worth trying. It is God’s prescription and it always works without fail!

WHY PLAY THE FOOL When You Can Play The Wise And Win Paradise?

You Are Playing An Act!
Why Play The Fool When
You Can Play The Wise
And Win Paradise?

(M. Javed Naseem)

“That which is on earth we have made
but as a glittering show for the earth,
in order that We may test them - as to
which of them are best in conduct. 
Verily what is on earth we shall make
but as dust and dry (barren) soil.
(al-Quran 18:7-8)

The above verse is a very clear declaration as well as a warning from God to us. Allah, the Almighty, declares the following:

  1. This world is just an act of play; a game show; a glittering display of entertainment.
  2. This game show or drama is a Test for mankind.
  3. The purpose of this show is to monitor our conduct (character, behavior, manners, dealings, treatment of others, etc.). In other words, how we play our part – in a good way or a bad way; as per the laws prescribed for us by God or violating the laws of Allah; in obedience to God or in disobedience!
  4. This entertainment show on earth is temporary and soon the curtain will be drawn when the end comes.
  5. At the end of this game show, everything in this world will be destroyed and the earth will be turned into dust and dry barren soil, the way it was before Allah gave it life for our sake.

Let there be no doubt about the above declaration in anybody’s mind. That’s the destiny of the planet Earth and it will be met.

The above two verses are from Surah al-Kahf (Chapter 18) of the Quran. Allah, the Almighty, repeats His declaration or warning in the same chapter and tells us that nobody would be spared. We shall all be resurrected and brought together in the court of the Supreme Creator for accountability.

“One day, We shall remove the mountains,
and you will see the earth as a level stretch,
and We shall gather them, all together, nor
shall We leave out any one of them.”
(al-Quran 18:47)

There is no escape and there are no exceptions! Everybody has to go through it – whether a sinner or a prophet! It’s very strange, and unbelievable at the same time, that with all his intelligence, education and wisdom, man keeps ignoring God’s commands; His warnings and reminders. Allah give us simple and easy-to-understand examples but in our stubbornness or arrogance, we refuse to take heed.

“Set forth to them the similitude of the life of
this world: It is like the rain which we send
down from the skies. The earth's vegetation
absorbs it, but soon it becomes dry stubble,
which the winds do scatter. It is (only)
Allah who prevails over all things.”
(al-Quran 18:45)

There’s always a pay back time! And so is with our lives too which were given to us by God under certain conditions. We were also given a ‘how-to’ manual to make things easy and smooth for our lives on earth. But we started abusing the God-given facilities and out of greed started accumulating material possessions as if there was no end (death). With our riches and big families (i.e., power) we started spreading corruption and evil in the earth. We forgot that earth was to be shared with all humans – rich or poor, big families or small families. We forgot that it’s good deeds that matter, nothing else. The Almighty reminds us again:

“Wealth and sons are allurements of the life
of this world. But the things that endure, good
deeds, are best in the sight of your Lord, as
rewards, and best as (the foundation for) hopes.”
(al-Quran 18:46)


This world is a test for all of us.
It’s like a game in the wonderland.
Make sure that you don’t get lost!
His help (guidance) will come if you
only seek it honestly and sincerely!


When you study the Quran, you’ll find hundreds of verses wherein God invites you to think, ponder, to reflect and use your intellect or brains. We are supposed to think about our role in this worldly entertainment show. It’s not for fun. It’s a test on the basis of which we’ll be rewarded a role in the next act – the life in the Hereafter. We need to ponder over this whole worldly affair.

We need to think for a moment what would happen when the show ends, and how can we benefit from this entertainment show! At the end of the show, the spectators would be clapping and the curtain would be drawn. Then we would be wondering and asking ourselves: Now what? What did we get out of it? We missed a few things. Is there any re-run?
No, there is no re-run. But there’s definitely the second part of this show and there is no guarantee that we would be playing or participating in that. So, we should make an effort to make sure that we get a seat in the next act. Only those who pass this worldly test will be offered a seat in the next show.

This world is God’s show – brilliant, wonderful and full of wisdom! It is not in vain; it is not purposeless fun show to get your ‘vow’ and clapping. It has a purpose and that is the purpose of our lives too. We should try to understand it. Let me put it in a simple way! Remember your school days when you were given assignments? We were shown a video/film clip, or an audio-passage; and we had to answer question about it. That’s exactly what’s happening in this world. We are living this show and we will be questioned about it. The only difference is that we shall be questioned about our role in this show because we are the actors and performers.

Therefore, we should not wait for the end of this show to act. The time to act is now! Stop playing the fool and start playing the wise! You can still enjoy the show but at the same time you can pick up what you need for your destination. Do your homework! The saying goes: ‘Make hay while the sun shines!’ And you’ll get an amazing reward.

Our success and protection is guaranteed if we follow the guidelines revealed to us. Let’s seek Allah’s help and protection for success.

“There, the (only) protection comes from
Allah, the True One. He is the Best to reward,
and the Best to give success.”
(al-Quran 18:44)
