Syria - The Last Stop Before Iran
They Are Pushing For Being Behind Schedule


George Galloway

Posted: 27 Aug 2013 07:07 AM PDT
Members of Parliament have been called back from their holidays to discuss and vote on Thursday whether Britain should take part in military action against Syria.

George Galloway has already expressed his typically forthright opinion.

“Wag the Dog” – The Sequel Set in Syria

Over the last couple of weeks a western-backed (and armed) military junta slaughtered many hundreds of Egyptians in broad daylight live on television. The death toll, still concealed, may have been thousands.

The west confined itself to disapproving words and calls for “restraint” on “both sides” – even though the victims were unarmed.

In Syria hundreds of people have just been slaughtered in circumstances which are entirely unclear, and the west is about to launch (in our case without parliamentary approval with the prime minister acting from a beach in Cornwall) a military attack with entirely unforeseen consequences on Damascus.

There is a “Wag the Dog” element about this, and indeed the war of President Clinton’s penis satirized in that masterful award-winning movie has already proved a handy diversion from Egypt before its even started.

It is entirely implausible that the Syrian regime chose the moment of the arrival of a UN chemical weapons inspection team to launch a chemical attack on an insurgency already suffering reverse after reverse on the battlefield and steadily losing international support with each new video showing them eating the hearts of slain soldiery and sawing of the heads of Christian priests with bread knives.

In the absence of conclusive evidence one would have to believe that the Assad regime was mad as well as bad to have launched such a chemical attack at a time when it is in less danger than it has been for almost a year. I do not believe that Bashar is mad.
There is ample evidence that the Syrian rag-tag-and-bobtail insurgency, dominated by the most extreme fanatic franchises of Al Qaeda, has access to chemical weapons, indeed any weapons the rag-tag-and-bobtail coalition behind them can get to them.

The US has a long history of using such weapons – and worse – and not just in SE Asia. In the destruction of Fallujah in next door Iraq they slaughtered thousands with the same kind of cocktails.

Israel regularly shares its own chemical weapons stockpile with their neighbors in Gaza. Check the pictures of phosphorous gas raining down upon the UN schools and hospitals in Operation Cast Lead if you don’t believe me.

Britain introduced chemical weapons to the middle east in the first place, dropping gas on the “uncivilized tribes” of Iraq in the 1920's and wondering in parliament “what all the fuss was about”.

Does anyone believe that the foul dictatorships of the Gulf – like Saudi Arabia – won’t give the Syrian rebels some of their chemical weapons? Especially if the purpose was to draw the big powers into the war?

Does anyone believe that a Syrian rebel army whose vile atrocities abound on YouTube won’t use them, for the same purpose?

So now we wait for the summer-surprise attack on yet another Arab country by the former colonial powers. Another summer, another Muslim country under murderous bombardment by the last people on the planet whose motives are trusted by anyone in the Muslim world.

Meanwhile, the money, and the weapons, keep on flowing to the Egyptian junta. The blood of some people, as always, turning out to be of far greater consequence than the blood of others…

Accept To Live Like A ‘Free Slave’ Or Else!

Salute To Bradley Manning
Whistle-blower Gets 35-Years Jail Term
For Telling The Truth

(Compiled by: M. Javed Naseem) 

“The best ‘Jihad’ is telling the truth in the face of a tyrant”
                                                                               ----- Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)

وَٱلْعَصْرِ إِنَّ ٱلإِنسَانَ لَفِى خُسْرٍ
إِلاَّ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّالِحَاتِ
وَتَوَاصَوْاْ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْاْ بِٱلصَّبْرِ
“By (the token of) Time (through the ages),
Verily, Man is in loss, except such as have Faith, and
do righteous deeds, and exhort one another to Truth,
and exhort one another to patient perseverance.
(al-Quran 103:1-3)

The disciples of ‘Anti-Christ’ are gaining more and more power every day and they are very active in eliminating the danger – the Truth. Truth is the biggest danger to their existence. They have waged a war against humanity. Disbelievers have unleashed havoc and Believers are drowning in their own blood.
Land of Liberty’ needs to be liberated, once again, from the tyrants and oppressors.
The liberty has been taken hostage by the fascist forces. Freedom is controlled, once again, by the Slave Traders and they sell it or lease it, to whom they will, for a heavy price. You can only live as a ‘free slave’.
Land of Opportunity’ is being controlled by a few corrupt Opportunists and they bar others from living their peaceful dream. Now, you have to ‘buy’ opportunity and accept to live like a robot or else.

Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35-years in prison for disclosing the truth. He just wanted to tell people, and warn them, about the state of their ‘freedom’ and ‘civil liberties’ guaranteed by the Constitution; how they were being fooled, watched and controlled. He paid a heavy price for telling the truth!
He released a statement through his lawyer last night, saying he acted “out of concern for my country” and asking President Obama to pardon him. “Sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society”, he said.

Daniel Ellsberg:
(The Daily Beast)

Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971, says that the machinery of our democratic government is broken—and we need whistleblowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden to inspire Americans to fight back against this invasion of privacy.

 “… I think there has not been a more significant or helpful leak or unauthorized disclosure in American history ever than what Edward Snowden shared with the Guardian about the NSA—and that definitely includes the Pentagon Papers.

“Bradley Manning, who put out the largest volume, simply did not have access to material of this degree of significance—although he did have daily access to material that was top secret or even higher, communications intelligence. He didn’t choose to disclose any of that highly classified material–what he shared was secret or less. I was frankly surprised there was so much evidence of criminality of the U.S. government’s in Manning’s secret material–I thought that would have been a higher level of classification. But apparently ordering people to be turned over to Iraqis knowing they would be tortured was so routine it didn’t require higher classification. And then when this was reported by American troops in over 100 different instances, in each case an illegal order was given to them: “no additional investigation.” That’s an illegal order. Under the Geneva Convention, not only can we not torture, but we cannot hand over anyone to another party we might expect to torture them. And if there are reasonable grounds to suspect that torture has occurred, there must be an investigation, so the orders not to investigate were clearly illegal. And that has not been prosecuted or investigated since Bradley Manning revealed it—that is a criminality that goes right up to the commander-in-chief, and that’s only at the secret level.” 

Alexa O’Brien
(The Daily Beast)

Manning’s lawyer Coombs was stunned. “I look at the sentence, and I can’t believe that was actually the sentence he received,” he told The Daily Beast. "There is a good young man who did what he thought was morally right and for the right reasons, and he was sentenced the way we would sentence somebody who committed murder—the way we would sentence somebody who molested a child. That is the sentence he received."

Embarrassing, but not damaging:

A congressional official who had been briefed by the State Department in late 2010 and early 2011 told Reuters: "The administration felt compelled to say publicly that the revelations had seriously damaged American interests in order to bolster legal efforts to shut down the WikiLeaks website and bring charges against the leakers.” The revelations, the congressional aide said, "were embarrassing, but not damaging."

Manning was held in pretrial confinement at Marine Corp Base Quantico Brig for nine months. U.N. special rapporteur on torture Juan Ernesto Méndez called his treatment at the Quantico Brig “cruel, inhuman, and degrading.” Manning was forced to strip and remain on a suicide-risk regime against the recommendations of Brig mental-health professionals. Judge Lind ruled that a portion of his time at Quantico was unlawful.

The Washington Post reported recently that Judge Lind was recently promoted to the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, where Manning’s case will automatically be appealed.

When asked if Manning received a fair trial, lawyer Coombs said, “The perception is no. He didn't receive a fair trial and that should be problematic for people. That should be problematic for our military, and hopefully that will be problematic for the president of the United States, and he should do something about it.”

AUGUST 21, 2013


Bradley Manning has been sentenced to thirty-five years in prison. Military prosecutors had asked for sixty years, out of a possible ninety; his lawyer, David Coombs, had asked for “a sentence that allows him to have a life.” Manning is twenty-five years old now. A thousand two hundred and ninety-four days, about three and a half years, will be subtracted from his sentence—time served plus a hundred and twelve days to penalize the government for treating him in an illegally abusive way while he was in detention. These numbers are out of proportion; this sentence, given all we know about Manning and what he did (and what was done to him), is a strikingly harsh one.

His sentence could and should have reflected the way the military had also let him down, badly. “This is a young man who is capable of being redeemed,” Coombs said at the sentencing hearing. “We should not rob him of his youth.” Some of that had already been stolen. He joined the Army after having not much more of a home than the couch in his married older sister’s one-bedroom apartment. That sister, Casey Major, testified at his sentencing hearing that, when she was eleven and he was a newborn, she would get up at night to care for him when he woke up, because both of their parents would be passed out drunk. When he was twelve and she had to drive their mother, who had tried to kill herself with an overdose of valium and alcohol, to the hospital, he was the one who had to sit in the backseat with her, to make sure she was still breathing.

That is the human part of the equation. There’s more, and all in directions that ought to have tended toward a little mercy for Manning. The WikiLeaks files have been a useful and important part of what had been about a dozen under-developed debates about our wars and foreign policy. The prosecutors, despite using words like betrayal frequently, had trouble, at the sentencing, showing specific harm, as opposed to diffuse embarrassment. And against thirty-five years, a hundred and twelve days seems like a paltry penalty for Manning’s extreme solitary confinement and his abuse. Where is the deterrent for that?

Was the deterrent meant to be the number of years—because twenty is already a lot—or the threat of the Espionage Act itself? There are laws against giving away classified files, including those Manning offered to plead guilty to. Why was it so important to call him a spy? An answer is that we have reached a point where our government, and allies like Britain, can’t tell the difference between leak investigations and espionage and terrorism.
It is also on that score that the detention of David Miranda, the partner of Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who received files from Snowden, is so dangerous. Miranda, a Brazilian citizen, was held for nine hours while in transit at Heathrow Airport under a section of Britain’s Terrorism Act. He was on his way from Berlin, where he had stayed with Laura Poitras, the documentary filmmaker who is also on the Snowden story; he was carrying some files from her for Greenwald. His computer, memory cards, and a video game he was carrying were all seized by British officials. Some observers have argued that the British were within their rights, since Miranda may have had secrets with him. Shouldn’t it be clear that this would have been a gross overreach even if Greenwald had been the one detained? The Terrorism Act is bad and broad—but it’s not that broad. It does say that these detentions are supposed to be about terrorism. Either the law was abused, as even many British politicians seem to believe, or the definitions of investigative journalism and being involved with terrorism have been horrendously conflated, which amounts to the same thing.

How was Miranda involved in terrorism, even putatively? Saying that the public revelations about surveillance made it harder for the NSA to continue on as before is not an adequate answer. For one thing, it could apply to almost any act of journalism that brings about change. The role of the press is to challenge the government’s practices. Couldn’t one just as easily say that, by imposing more of a cost on, for example, work habits that include almost three thousand rule-breaking incidents a year, investigative journalism might make the agency operate better? There are other laws that might have been used, and the British don’t get a pass for this being the most convenient one for them. (Or for us: the Obama Administration was informed about Miranda’s detention beforehand.) 

If Miranda could be pulled off with the word “terrorist,” what journalist who has written about classified information—or their colleagues or relatives—couldn’t be? Some will be more or less isolated, politically or emotionally. (“I knew my country would protect me, and I believe in my husband and knew that he would do anything to help me,” Miranda told the Guardian.) But the turning point, both for freedom of the press and for privacy and unlawful search and seizure, is one we’re all at.

Miranda’s detention was joined with an extraordinary incident (which my colleague John Cassidy has written about) that ended with British intelligence officers standing in the Guardian’s offices while computer equipment holding files from Snowden were smashed into small pieces. There are other copies, including, perhaps, at the paper’s offices in New York. We are, as Alan Rusbridger, editor of the Guardian, has written, lucky in this country to have a press with a better shot at avoiding prior restraint. But both the Manning and Snowden cases show why that is at risk. They also show why it’s worth pushing back, and fighting.

Raf Sanchez
(The Telegraph, London)
After a 20-month court martial, a military judge took less than two minutes to sentence the 25-year-old soldier and order him to be dishonorably discharged from the Army for passing thousands of classified files to the anti-secrecy website.
Although Manning’s jail term was condemned as an “outrage that flies in the face of America’s essential ideals” by his supporters, it was only a third of the possible 90 years he faced after being convicted of espionage and a host of other crimes.
Under military law he will be eligible for parole after serving 10 years, or a third of his sentence, whichever is sooner.
Having served three and a half years, and with 112 days taken off by the judge because the Army broke the law by keeping him in solitary confinement for nine months, Manning could in theory be released in around seven years.

The ruling, by Colonel Denise Lind, the judge who presided over the trial, is a blow to the US government prosecutors who had asked her to imprison the young soldier for at least 60 years.
WikiLeaks hailed the sentencing as a “significant strategic victory”. The website founded by Julian Assange tweeted that Manning would be “eligible for release in less than nine years”.

Manning himself showed no emotion as he stood in the sparse military courtroom at Fort Meade, a base outside Washington that is home to the National Security Agency (NSA).
Around a half dozen of his supporters, dressed in black T-shirts adorned with the word “Truth”, began shouting “We love you Bradley” and “You’re our hero” as the sentence was read out.
Manning was convicted in July on 20 of the 22 charges against him, including six counts of espionage. However, the judge cleared him of the most serious charge of aiding the enemy, which could have carried a life sentence with no chance of parole. Col Lind also demoted him from private first class to private and ordered him to forfeit all pay and benefits.
The Bradley Manning Support Network, which funded his defense, said the sentence was “an outrage that flies in the face of America’s essential ideals of accountability in government”.
Last night, Manning’s British-based family said he was a “hero” who should not have been given jail time. His mother Susan Manning, 60, who lives in Haverford West in Wales, sat next to her brother Kevin Fox, 61, as they heard his sentence. Mr. Fox said: “It was less time than I thought – that’s got to be a good thing. I hope it will be reduced (in the future). But to be honest, he shouldn’t have been given any time at all. In my eyes he is a hero.”
The Obama administration has brought prosecutions against seven alleged leakers, more than all previous US administrations combined. Among them is Edward Snowden, the fugitive former NSA contractor who has been granted temporary asylum in Russia.
Manning’s sentence will be reviewed by the Army Court of Criminal Appeals and could go before the US Supreme Court. President Barack Obama or any of his successors could issue a pardon.
Manning released a defiant statement through his lawyer last night, saying he acted “out of concern for my country” and asking President Obama to pardon him. “Sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society,” he said.
Manning spoke at length in court only three times during his trial. In February of this year he admitted being responsible for the leaks and read a lengthy statement, saying he had “a clear conscience”.
“I wanted the American public to know that not everyone in Iraq and Afghanistan was a target that needed to be engaged and neutralized but people struggling to live in the pressure cooker of asymmetric warfare,” Manning said.
But last week, as he spoke during the sentencing phase of the trial, he struck a more conciliatory note and apologised for the first time.
“I’m sorry that my actions hurt people. I’m sorry that it hurt the United States,” he said. “When I made these decisions, I believed I was going to help people, not hurt people.”
Manning’s defense team used the proceedings to put the US military itself on trial, arguing that the Army missed multiple warning signs that the soldier was struggling with gender identity issues and was in emotional turmoil.
The court heard how Manning sent his superiors an anguished email where he explained he thought should be a woman and attached a photograph of himself as his female alter-ego “Breanna”, wearing make-up and a blonde wig.

Russia called Manning’s sentence “unjustifiably harsh” and accused the United States of double standards. The Russian foreign ministry’s human rights representative argued that “when US interests are at stake, as was the case with Bradley Manning, the American justice system adopts unjustifiably harsh decisions ... without any regard for human rights.”

FORT MEADE, Md. -- Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday for handing WikiLeaks a massive cache of sensitive government documents detailing the inner workings of America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Manning, 25, was not allowed to make a statement when his sentence was handed down by military judge Col. Denise Lind. Guards quickly hustled him out of the courtroom, while at least half a dozen spectators shouted their support.
"We'll keep fighting for you, Bradley," one exclaimed.
Manning was also dishonorably discharged and demoted from the rank of private first class to private. He was ordered to forfeit all pay and benefits.
Manning was convicted on July 30 on 19 of the 21 contested charges in his trial, including six Espionage Act violations, for his role in the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history. The charges carried a maximum sentence of 90 years, and the prosecution had requested Manning serve 60. His sentencing brings to a close a three-year saga in which he endured nine months in solitary confinement and saw himself transformed into a symbol of one individual's potential in the Internet age to roil the world's sole superpower.
Yochai Benkler, a Harvard professor who has studied WikiLeaks and testified in Manning's defense, said those reductions (in sentence) in time served would certainly be a "relief" for Manning.
But "the bottom line is it's 35 years, that's what everyone will know," he said. "Basically the decision has done more damage to the American Constitutional order than all of the disclosures put together did to any other kind of American interest."
Amnesty International immediately called on President Barack Obama to commute Manning's sentence to time served.
“Bradley Manning acted on the belief that he could spark a meaningful public debate on the costs of war, and specifically on the conduct of the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan," Widney Brown, senior director of international law and policy at Amnesty International, said in a statement. "The US government should turn its attention to investigating and delivering justice for the serious human rights abuses committed by its officials in the name of countering terror.”
The sentencing phase of Manning's trial revealed that contrary to the claims of pundits and politicians, Manning had no blood on his hands – the Departments of Defense and State were unable to tie his releases to the deaths of any U.S. informants.
Manning's small but vocal contingent of supporters, many in the anti-war movement, have argued that his massive document dump accelerated the pullout of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and helped spark the Arab revolutions in 2010 and 2011.
His leaks included a video of an Apache helicopter attack in Baghdad that killed civilians including two Reuters journalists.
Manning also faces a spartan, monotonous life in prison. He will also not be allowed to grant interviews to the media, according to a Fort Leavenworth spokesperson.
Manning's sentence is one year longer than that given to a man who offered to sell secrets to Iraq during the first Gulf War, and five years longer than that of a man who passed "sophisticated defense secrets to communist East Germany.”

Speaking on Monday before the sentence was handed down, Andrea Prasow, senior counterterrorism counsel and advocate in Human Rights Watch's U.S. Program, told HuffPost that the massive investigation involving hundreds of State and Defense Department employees into Manning's leaks stood in stark contrast to the government's unwillingness to prosecute those involved in torture and abuse at places like Abu Ghraib.
"It's hard to look at the aggressive prosecution of someone so young, who is clearly troubled, and probably did have a fair bit of concern about the public interest ... and compare that to people who authorized a regime of torture and abuse and will remain free," Prasow said.

Hypocrites (‘Munafiqeen’) & Traitors (‘Ghaddar’)
Pakistanis Hurt Pakistan
More Than The Foreign Elements

(By: M. Javed Naseem)

بَشِّرِ ٱلْمُنَافِقِينَ بِأَنَّ لَهُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً  
“To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that
there is for them (but) a grievous penalty.”
(al-Quran 4:138)

They sell their conscience, their motherland, their loyalty and their Islam for Dollars; and work for those foreign Zionist powers that don’t want to see a stable and strong Pakistan. In their minds, they are securing the future of their families/children in this world. They forget that it’s the ‘Hereafter’ that matters, not this world! This world is a ‘trial’, a test and a harvesting field for you, me and everyone else!

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلْمَوْتِ وَإِنَّمَا تُوَفَّوْنَ أُجُورَكُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَامَةِ
فَمَنْ زُحْزِحَ عَنِ ٱلنَّارِ وَأُدْخِلَ ٱلْجَنَّةَ فَقَدْ فَازَ
وَما ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا إِلاَّ مَتَاعُ ٱلْغُرُورِ
“Every soul will taste of death. And you will be paid on
the Day of Resurrection only that which you have fairly
earned. Whoso is removed from the Fire and is made
to enter Paradise, he indeed is triumphant.
The life of this world is but comfort of illusion.”
(al-Quran 3:185)

You can’t run away from the trials and tests. There is no short-cut and no escape either. You have to go through hardships, difficulties and hunger. Sometime, you even have to take a blood-bath to prove your mettle. (Remember Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Indonesia, Tunisia, East Pakistan, Libya, Burma, Syria and Egypt?). It’s not easy! If you choose an easy way out, that will turn out to be a dead-end street eventually. So, stop worrying about your ‘future’ in this world and work on the ‘Hereafter’!

ٱلْمَالُ وَٱلْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ ٱلْحَيَاةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلْبَاقِيَاتُ ٱلصَّالِحَاتُ
خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَاباً وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلاً
“Wealth and children are an ornament of the life of this
world. But the good deeds which endure, are better in
your Lord's sight for reward, and better in respect of hope.”
(al-Quran 18:46)

Getting back to the hypocrites (‘Munafiqeen’), they belong to a Muslim country but they seek refuge in a non-Muslim country! They claim to believe in Allah and His prophets but they do everything against the commands of Allah and the teachings of the prophets. They love their foreign masters more than they love Allah and His messengers. The are the hypocrites (‘Munafiqeen’) who think that they will never be taken to task. They are dead wrong.
إِنَّ ٱلْمُنَافِقِينَ فِى ٱلدَّرْكِ ٱلأَسْفَلِ مِنَ ٱلنَّارِ وَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُمْ نَصِيراً
إِلاَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَابُواْ وَأَصْلَحُواْ وَٱعْتَصَمُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَأَخْلَصُواْ دِينَهُمْ لِلَّهِ
فَأُوْلَـٰئِكَ مَعَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَسَوْفَ يُؤْتِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَجْراً عَظِيماً
“The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire;
And you will find no helper for them;
Except for those who repent, mend (their lives) to hold fast to
Allah, and purify their religion as in Allah's sight. If so, they
will be (numbered) with the believers. And soon will Allah
grant to the believers a reward of immense value.”
(al-Quran 4:145-146)

And there are others who serve their foreign masters willingly or unwillingly (but they still get paid!), and they fear them more than they fear Allah. They say that they are “weak” Muslims. Huh!
ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ ٱلْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِندَهُمُ ٱلْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ ٱلعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعاً
“Yea, to those who take for friends unbelievers rather
than believers, is it honor they seek among them?
Nay, all honor is with Allah.”
(al-Quran 4:139)

Is it the ‘faith’ that makes them weak or is it the material wealth of this world? A faith that makes you weak, is not faith. It’s just a ‘shaky notion’. Faith makes you strong – so strong that you take the challenge to fight the whole world all alone! You want to smash the mountains all alone! You want to fly, walk on the water and pass through the fire all alone! But are you all alone? No, Allah is with you! HE is always with you because you have faith in HIM, you trust HIM and HE protects you. That’s Faith! With faith, you die only once, otherwise you die every day, before death!

هُنَالِكَ ٱلْوَلاَيَةُ لِلَّهِ ٱلْحَقِّ هُوَ خَيْرٌ ثَوَاباً وَخَيْرٌ عُقْباً
“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)

Pakistan was created in the name of Allah to practice Islam. Its slogan was: “La ilaha illa-Allah” (“There is no god but Allah”). The Almighty accepted the sacrifice of thousands of believers and blessed the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent by granting them a country of their own – Pakistan – on the sacred night (‘Lailat-ul Qadr’) of 27th of Ramadan. Do you think it was a coincidence? Do you still doubt His Power and Mercy? Do you still deny the connection between Islam (Allah) and Pakistan (Muslims)? Think again and reflect!

The forces of evil (followers of Shaitan) are constantly attacking Pakistan on all fronts – cultural, religious, social, political, economic, educational and technological. They will never stop because it’s the eternal war between ‘good’ and ‘evil’, the ‘truth’ and the ‘falsehood’. Eventually, they’ll be destroyed. That is the law of Allah.

أُولَـٰئِكَ لَمْ يَكُونُواْ مُعْجِزِينَ فِى ٱلأَرْضِ وَمَا كَانَ لَهُمْ
مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَآءَ يُضَاعَفُ لَهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ
مَا كَانُواْ يَسْتَطِيعُونَ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَمَا كَانُواْ يُبْصِرُونَ
أُوْلَـٰئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ خَسِرُوۤاْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَضَلَّ عَنْهُمْ مَّا كَانُواْ يَفْتَرُونَ
“They will in no wise frustrate (His design) on earth,
nor have they protectors besides Allah! Their penalty
will be doubled! They lost the power to hear, and
they did not see! They are the ones who have lost
their own souls: and the (fancies) they invented
have left them in the lurch!”
(al-Quran 11:20-21)

In all Muslim countries, those who represent ‘good’ and the ‘truth’ are on the shaky grounds because of their weak ‘Iman’ (faith). They are suffering as heavy damages are being inflicted upon them. They are fallen, but they can still stand up and muster their strength; renew their faith and fight with the spirit of the fighters of ‘Badr’. They can still achieve the triumph like Badr. It’s meant for them.

لَتُبْلَوُنَّ فِيۤ أَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ وَلَتَسْمَعُنَّ مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ
أُوتُواْ ٱلْكِتَابَ مِنْ  قَبْلِكُمْ وَمِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوۤاْ أَذًى
كَثِيراً وَإِنْ تَصْبِرُواْ وَتَتَّقُواْ فَإِنَّ ذٰلِكَ مِنْ عَزْمِ ٱلأُمُورِ
“You shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions
and in your personal selves; and you shall certainly hear
much that will grieve you, from those who were given the
Scripture before you; and from those who worship many gods.
But if you persevere patiently, and guard against evil,
then that will be a determining factor in all affairs.”
(al-Quran 3:186)

The most powerful forces (of evil) on earth have joined hands to crush Muslim countries one by one. On the other hand, the richest and the most resourceful Muslim countries are being ruled by the corrupt elite who are playing puppets in the hands of evil forces. They don’t have the courage and the spirit to stand up for justice and truth. They look for ‘hired’ protectors. Their example is that of a prostitute who sleeps with different ‘strong’ men believing that one of them (or all?) will protect her. She does not realize that she is being used by all of them.

The only way to honor and dignity is through justice and good governance. Anything that stands in the way, must be dealt with iron hand. Corruption and injustice must be fought to elimination otherwise they will consume the whole nation. In a Muslim society, fighting corruption and injustice is like fighting in the cause of Allah. The Almighty has commanded the believers to do so.

وَقَاتِلُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ
وَلاَ تَعْتَدُوۤاْ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لاَ يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُعْتَدِينَ
“Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you,
but do not transgress limits; for
Allah loves not transgressors.
(al-Quran 2:190)

Here’s the law of this cruel and ruthless world: Those who cannot defend themselves, have no right to exist. Freedom is not granted on a silver platter, it is snatched with force. And if you don’t have the force, don’t even think of freedom. Chocolate soldiers, music-playing decorative regiments and adultery-loving troops cannot fight to protect freedom. A corrupt administration (government) has no credentials to win honor and respect for its people either. Its “best bargain” would be slavery.

Let’s look back for a while to understand how the idea of Pakistan was conceived by Allama Muhammad Iqbal; and how it was viewed by the ‘Father of the Nation’, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.


The great thinker of the East, Allama Muhammad Iqbal was the first person in the Indian sub-continent to officially announce the concept of a separate Muslim nation. He was the pioneer of all freedom movements. On 29th December, 1930, while addressing the 25th session of the All-India Muslim League at Allahabad, India, Allama Iqbal, in his presidential speech, presented the idea of a separate homeland for Indian Muslims. This was the official conception of Pakistan. His dream was ultimately realized in 1947, in the form of Pakistan – a new country for the Muslims of Indian sub-continent.


“I would like to see the Punjab, North-West Frontier Province,
Sindh and Balochistan amalgamated into a single State.
Self-government within the British Empire, or without the
British Empire, the formation of a consolidated North-West
Indian Muslim State appears to me to be the final destiny of
the Muslims, at least of North-West India.”

“The principle of European democracy cannot be applied to
India without recognizing the fact of communal groups. The
Muslim demand for the creation of a Muslim India within
India, is, therefore, perfectly justified. The resolution of the
All-Parties Muslim Conference at Delhi is, to my mind,
Wholly inspired by this noble ideal of a harmonious whole
Which, instead of stifling the respective individualities of
Its component wholes, affords them chances of fully working
Out the possibilities that may be latent in them. And I have no
doubt that this House will emphatically endorse the Muslim
demands embodied in this resolution.”

“Hindus should not fear that the creation of autonomous Muslim
states will mean the introduction of a kind of religious rule in
such states. I have already indicated to you the meaning of the
word religion, as applied to Islam. The truth is that Islam is not
a Church. For India, it means security and peace resulting from
an internal balance of power; for Islam, an opportunity to rid
itself of the stamp that Arabian Imperialism was forced to give
it, to mobilize its law, its education, its culture, and to bring
them into closer contact with its own original spirit and with
the spirit of modern times.”        
                                                   ---   Allama Muhammad Iqbal

And here’s how the ‘founding father’ of Pakistan expressed his views on the subject and presented them to the Muslims of the sub-continent:


The Father of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, got his higher education in the English institutions of Britain. He spent many years overseas and he knew very well the nature and character of the ruling elite running the British Empire. He knew how to deal with them but it was the Indian people who created problems for him. Just like today, they were then also divided into groups/sects; and it was very difficult to bring them together on one platform. Jinnah asked Indian Muslims to learn their lesson.


Excerpts from Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s Presidential speech to
the Muslim League at Lucknow, October 1937.

 “The one wholesome lesson that I ask the Musalmans to learn,
before it is too late, is that the path before the Musalmans is,
therefore, plain. They must realize that the time has come when
they should concentrate and devote their energies to self-
organization and full development of their power, to the exclusion
of every other consideration.”
“I have pointed out before that a section of Musalmans is divided,
that there is a group that stands with face turned towards the British.
If they have not learnt by now of the bitter consequences, they will
never learn. God only helps those who help themselves”
“There is another group which turns towards the Congress, and
they do so because they have lost faith in themselves. I want the
Musalmans to believe in themselves, and take their destiny in
their own hands. We want men of faith and resolution who have
the courage and determination, and who would fight single-handed
for their convictions, though at the moment the whole world may
be against them. We (must) develop power and strength, till the
Musalmans are fully organized and have acquired that power and
strength which must come from the solidarity and the unity of
(the) people.”
“Eighty millions of Musalmans in India have nothing to fear.
They have their destiny in their hands, and as a well-knit, solid,
organized, united force can face any danger; and withstand any
opposition to its united front and wishes. There is the magic power
in your own hands. Take your vital decisions – they may be grave
and momentous and far-reaching in their consequences. Think (a)
hundred times before you take any decision, but once a decision is
taken, stand by it as one man. Be true and loyal, and I feel confident
that success is with you.”                        
                                                               ----- Muhammad Ali Jinnah 

Jinnah’s address to the Muslim League, Lahore, 1940:

“But one thing is quite clear: it has always been taken for granted,
mistakenly, that the Mussalmans are a minority, and of course we
have got used to it for such a long time that these settled notions
sometimes are very difficult to remove. The Mussalmans are not
a minority. The Mussalmans are a nation by any definition. But
surely the Mussalmans are not a minority. We find that even
according to the British map of India, we occupy large parts of
this country where the Mussalmans are in a majority, such as
Bengal, Punjab, N.W.F.P., Sind, and Baluchistan.”

"You remember the conversation I reported to you in Calcutta
which I had with Hakim Ajmal Khan and Dr. Kitchlew. There is
no finer Muhammadan in Hindustan than Hakim Ajmal Khan,
but can any Muslim leader over-ride the Quran? …..
I think that the masses are wide awake. They only want your
guidance and your lead. Come forward as servants of Islam.
organise the people economically, socially, educationally, and
politically, and I am sure that you will be a power that will be
accepted by everybody.”
                                                        ----- Muhammad Ali Jinnah

It is high time for the people of Pakistan to clean up the mess; single out the traitors and the ‘Munafiqeen’; and get rid of them as soon as possible. Fix your house well before it crumbles! Unless you get together on one platform with one force binding all, you cannot achieve success. The best help comes from Allah. It’s time to repent and revert to Allah. He is the Most Merciful and the Best Protector!
پاکستان کو سب سے زیادہ نقصان غدار پاکستانیوں نے پہنچایا۔
قومیں جب بے غیرت ہو جائیں تو مٹ جاتی ہیں۔
یہ قانون قدرت ہے۔ قرآن کھول کر دیکھیں!

وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلٌ فَإِذَا جَآءَ أَجَلُهُمْ لاَ يَسْتَأْخِرُونَ سَاعَةً وَلاَ يَسْتَقْدِمُونَ 
“To every people is a term appointed. When their term
is reached, not an hour can they cause delay, nor (an hour)
can they advance it (in anticipation).”
(al-Quran 7:34)

وَٱلَّذِينَ كَذَّبُواْ بِآيَاتِنَا يَمَسُّهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ بِمَا كَانُواْ يَفْسُقُونَ
 “But those who reject our signs, punishment shall
touch them, because they used to disobey. “
(al-Quran 6:49)

جاگو۔ ابھی وقت ہے توبہ اور استغفار کے لئے۔ تباہی دہلیز پر کھڑی ہے۔
منافقت اورفرقہ پرستی چھوڑو مسلمان بنو۔ صوبہ پرستی چھوڑو  پاکستانی بنو۔
اپنی بداعمالیوں ، نااہلی، جہالت، کرپشن  اورملکی تباہی کا الزام دوسروں پر نہ ڈالو۔

ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَصَدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ زِدْنَاهُمْ
عَذَاباً فَوْقَ ٱلْعَذَابِ بِمَا كَانُواْ يُفْسِدُونَ
“Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the
Path of Allah, for them will We add penalty to penalty;
for that they used to spread mischief.” 
(al-Quran 16:88)
