ISLAM IS PEACE - 30/30 of Islamic Code of Conduct - Part 2/2

From The Quran
30/30 of Islamic Code
of Conduct
(Part 2/2)

Islam Means Peace
And Good Manners

(M. Javed Naseem)

Islam stands for submission to the Lord and a Muslim is the one who obeys his Lord (Allah); and spreads peace through good manners and conduct.
Generally, common people don’t have the authentic (Quranic) knowledge of the Deen (Islam), therefore, they look up to the Mullahs to guide them and teach them. And a Mullah can teach you anything he likes. Many Mullahs themselves lack the knowledge of the Quran. They easily find ‘Ahadith’ on any/every subject and they promote them without verifying their accuracy and authenticity. They don’t do research to find Quranic verses to support their argument.
So, the best option is to open the Quran and study carefully. We’ll definitely get the guidance.
Here’s the second part of the 30/30 of Islamic Code of Conduct. 30/30 means 30 verses of the Quran and 30 rules of conduct.

16. Kind Treatment
Treat your parents, family members, orphans and the needy with kindness and help others (in charity)!
“Kind words and the covering of faults (forgiving) are better than charity followed by injury. Allah is free of all wants, and He is Most-Forbearing.” - (al-Quran 2/263)

17. Spend in Charity!
“Those who spend their substance in the cause of Allah, and follow not up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, for them their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” - (al-Quran 2:262)

“The parable of those who spend their substance in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: It grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases. And Allah cares for all and He knows all things.” - (al-Quran 2:261)

18. Don’t Hide The Truth! 
Do not confound truth with falsehood; don’t exaggerate; don’t add or delete; don’t mix up the right with the wrong!
“And cover not Truth with falsehood, nor conceal the Truth when you know (what it is).”
(al-Quran 2:42)

19. Don’t Be A Hypocrite!
Say with your mouth what is in your heart! Do what you say and say what you do! Your words and actions should support each other, not contradict!
“… They were that day nearer to Unbelief than to Faith, saying with their lips what was not in their hearts but Allah has full knowledge of all they conceal." - (al-Quran 3:167)

“O you who believe! Why say you that which you do not?
Grievously odious is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not.” - (al-Quran 61:2-3)

20. Treat Women Nicely!
“And give the women (on marriage) their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, take it and enjoy it with right good cheer!” - (al-Quran 4:4)

“To those weak of understanding make not over your property, which Allah has made a means of support for you, but feed and clothe them therewith, and speak to them words of kindness and justice.” - (al-Quran 4:5)

21. Divorce With Dignity, Responsibility!
“There is no blame on you if you divorce women before consummation or the fixation of their dower; but bestow on them (a suitable gift), the wealthy according to his means, and the poor according to his means; a gift of a reasonable amount is due from those who wish to do the right thing.”
(al-Quran 2:236)

“For divorced women maintenance (should be provided) on a reasonable (scale). This is a duty on the righteous.” - (al-Quran 241)

22. Don’t Ridicule or Mock Others!
“O you who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others! It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former). Nor let some women laugh at others! It may be that the (latter are better than the (former). Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames! Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed. And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.” - (al-Quran 49:11)

23. Don’t Rob Orphans or The Weak!
“And come not nigh to the orphan's property, except to improve it, until he attain the age of full strength; give measure and weight with (full) justice; no burden do We place on any soul, but that which it can bear. …”
(al-Quran 6:152)

“Come not nigh to the orphan's property except to improve it, until he attains the age of full strength; and fulfills (every) engagement, for (every) engagement will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).”

24. Don’t Be Arrogant, Boastful!
“Nor walk on the earth with insolence, for you cannot rend the earth asunder, nor reach the mountains in height!” - (al-Quran 17:37

"And swell not your cheek (for pride) at men, nor walk in insolence through the earth; for Allah loves not any arrogant boaster.” - (al-Quran 31:18)

25. Gossip & Vain Talk
Do not talk, listen or do anything vain; avoid gossip and derogatory jokes!
“And when they hear vain talk, they turn away from it and say: To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you. We seek not the ignorant." - (al-Quran 28:55)

26. Pardon And Seek Pardon For Misdeeds!
If, unintentionally, any misconduct occurs by you, correct yourself expeditiously and seek pardon or forgiveness!
“Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good.” - (al-Quran 3:134)

“And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls, earnestly bring Allah to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins,- and who can forgive sins except Allah?- and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done.” - (al-Quran 3:135)

27. Watch Your Measure/Balance!
“Give full measure when ye measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight: that is the most fitting and the most advantageous in the final determination.” - (al-Quran 17:35)

28. Be Humble And Sedate! 
Walk with humility and sedateness.
“Successful indeed are the believers who are humble in their prayers …" - (al-Quran 23:1-2)

“And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!" - (al-Quran 25:63)

29. Don’t Speak Without Knowledge! Verify!
If you do not have complete knowledge about anything, better keep your mouth shut.  You might think that speaking about something without full knowledge is a trivial matter.  But it might have grave consequences. Don’t spread rumors or unverified information!
“Behold, you received it on your tongues, and said out of your mouths things of which you had no knowledge; and you thought it to be a light matter, while it was most serious in the sight of Allah.”
(al-Quran 24:15)

“And why did you not, when you heard it, say? – ‘It is not right of us to speak of this. Glory to Allah! This is a most serious slander!" - (al-Quran 24:16)

30. Lower Your Gaze! 
MEN: “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.”
(al-Quran 24:30)
WOMEN: “And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers …” - (al-Quran 24:31) 

“… Worship none but Allah; treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in prayer; and practice regular charity. Then did you turn back, except a few among you, and you backslide (even now).” - (al-Quran 2:83)

Islamic Code of Conduct
30 Verses of The Quran,
30 Rules of Conduct.
(Part 1 of 2)

Islam Means Peace
And Good Manners

(M. Javed Naseem)

We love to preach to others what we don’t practice ourselves. Preaching and criticizing others are the easiest things to do.
If a regular preacher gets hold of you, he would make your life miserable. He would want to convert you into an angel and deprive you of the privilege of being a human being. He would bombard you with dry and rigid rituals and rules of conduct; and would insist, by quoting many Ahadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad, s.a.w.), that his view is the true Islam. A Mullah emphasizes on the superficial things (left foot, right foot, left hand, right hand, fingers, beard, hair, pants, style of hijab, etc., etc.). The truth is that he won’t be able to support his claim by the verses from the Quran. On the day of Judgment, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) himself would complain to Allah that these people had abandoned the Quran:

So, the best option is to study the Quran yourself (with translation, of course), again and again and again. I guarantee you that you’ll get the guidance from Allah, the Almighty. That’s His promise!

We love films and film-stars; sports and sportsmen; and spend a lot of time watching them on TV. We also spend a lot of time on the internet or on mobile phones. If we spend just 20% of the time we consume on sports, internet and mobiles phones, we’ll learn a lot more about Islam. And that will set us free from depending on Mullahs in seeking guidance. It is unfortunate that we know a lot about sportsmen and filmstars  but don’t know much about Islam.

I have compiled “30/30 of Islamic Manners” – a glossary of Islamic Code of Conduct. I assure you that many Muslims and non-Muslims amongst you would be surprised to know the truth that Islam is a simple but beautiful and practical Deen (Way of Life) that covers all aspects of our daily life. It explains, recommends, sometime obligates, the rules of conduct that are plain, simple and common sense but can make your life pleasant and easy. You might already be practicing those rules without even knowing that they are from the Quran!

There are hundreds, even thousands, of such golden rules of conduct in the Quran. I just picked up some, at random, in no particular order, to give you some satisfaction that you are already practicing these rules. These verses relate to 30 topics but the verses' count is more than 30. For ease, we can call it 30/30 of Islam. First, learn what is prohibited (Haraam)!

Know What Is ‘Haraam’!
“Say: Come, I will rehearse what Allah has (really) prohibited you from:
Join not anything as equal with Him;
Be good to your parents;
Kill not your children on a plea of want – We provide sustenance for you and for them;
Come not nigh to shameful deeds, whether open or secret; 
Take not life which Allah has made sacred, except by way of justice and law!
Thus does He command you, that you may learn wisdom.”
(al-Quran 6:151)

If you keep your conduct and manners in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.), who followed the Quran in letter and spirit; and who was declared by Allah the ‘Best Role Model’ for mankind, you would be a winner! You cannot lose if you abstain from what Allah has prohibited!

1. Cooperate in Righteousness,
Not in Sin!
“… Help one another in righteousness and piety, but help not one another in sin and rancor! Fear Allah, for Allah is strict in punishment!”
(al-Quran 5:2)

2. Justice & Fairplay
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just, that is next to piety, and fear Allah! For Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do.”
(al-Quran 5:8)

3. Criminal Justice
“We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah has revealed, they are (no better than) wrong-doers.”
(al-Quran 5:45)

4. Respect Everybody!
Allah has honored us, so respect and honor all human beings irrespective of their religion, color, race, sex, language, status, property, family, birth, profession or job!
”We have honored the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favors, above a great part of our creation.”
(al-Quran 17:70)

5. Be Polite And Courteous!
Choose best words to speak and say them in the best possible way! Be civilized and courteous! Vulgarity and bad manners come from the Devil and he is man’s enemy.
“Say to My servants that they should (only) say those things that are best, for Satan does sow dissensions among them. For Satan is to man an avowed enemy.”
(al-Quran 17:53)

6. Drinking, Gambling:
”O you who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination – of Satan's handwork! Eschew such (abomination) that you may prosper.”
(al-Quran 5:90)

7. Hunting Animals: a) Halal Food
“They ask you what is lawful to them (as food). Say: lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure: and what you have taught your trained hunting animals (to catch) in the manner directed to you by Allah. Eat what they catch for you, but pronounce the name of Allah over it and fear Allah; for Allah is swift in taking account.”
(al-Quran 5:4)
b) Haraam Food:
“Forbidden to you (for food) are: Dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which has been invoked the name of other than Allah; that which has been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which has been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless you are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows; that is impiety.”
(al-Quran 5:3)

8. Food of The People of The Book (Jews/Christians)
“This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. …”
(al-Quran 5:5)

9. Inter-Faith Marriages
"Lawful (unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book, revealed before your time – when you give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).”
(al-Quran 5:5)

10. Wuzu (Wudu) or Ablution
“O you who believe! When you prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows! Rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles! If you are in a state of ceremonial impurity, bathe your whole body. But if you are ill, or on a journey, or one of you comes from offices of nature, or you have been in contact with women, and you find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands, Allah does not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and to complete his favor to you, that you may be grateful.”
(al-Quran 5:6)

11. Worshipping The Dead/Graves
“O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, you call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all combine together for the purpose! And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition!”
(al-Quran 22:73)

12. Allah’s Way Is The Right Way
“O you who believe! Guard your own souls! If you follow (right) guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who stray. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of all that you do.”
(al-Quran 5:105)
“O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah, seek the means of approach unto Him, and strive with might and main in his cause, that you may prosper.”
(al-Quran 5:35)

13. Avoid Suspicion & Eaves-dropping!
“O you who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible); for suspicion in some cases is a sin. And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, you would abhor it...But fear Allah! For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.”
(al-Quran 49:12)

14. Don’t Shout, Be Polite!
Speak in a civilized manner in a language that is recognized by the society and is commonly used. Do not shout! Speak politely keeping your voice low!
"And be moderate in your pace, and lower your voice; for the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass."  
(al-Quran 31/19)

15. Talk Straight, justly!
Talk straight to the point, truthfully, without any ambiguity or deception!
“O you who believe! Fear Allah, and (always) say a word directed to the Right!”
(al-Quran 33:70) 
“… Whenever you speak, speak justly, even if a near relative is concerned; and fulfill the covenant of Allah! Thus does He command you, that you may remember.”
(al-Quran 6:152)

THE NEW AXIS OF EVIL (The Devil's Alliance, Part 2/2)

WW-III: The Devil’s Alliance
(Part 2/2)

The New Axis of Evil
Will Protect The Empire
And The Petrodollar
At All Costs

(M. Javed Naseem)

“Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar also
have assisted in the transfer of heavy
weapons directly to Al-Nusra by flying
hundreds of cargo flights into Syria.”


The stakes:
If the U.S. and allies fail to remove Assad
from power, they risk being edged out of the
entire region, and replaced by Russia. This
would give Russia an enormous amount of
leverage in global energy markets, which has
serious implications for the petrodollar.
For Washington, this is unacceptable.

The WW-III is very well planned and through this the Devil’s Alliance (US, EU, KSA, Israel) has been systematically but brutally neutralizing the Islamic states that are a hurdle in the way of their world hegemony or One World Government. Some of those Muslim and Middle Eastern countries were presumably posing some kind of threat to Israel too.

The other consideration is the oil & gas. Once you eliminate the hostile government, the oil and gas resources are yours to cash in without any resistance. The countries are devastated to such an extent that the re-emergence of new opposition leaders is only a remote possibility in the next 20 years.

“Turkey has been the primary route for material
and personnel headed in and out of jihadist
territory for many years. A blatant example of
this was 400 tons of weapons that were looted
from Gaddafi's (Libyan) armories, shipped to
Turkey and then moved into Syria in 2012.”

Afghanistan is done; Iraq is finished; Palestine is no more; Libya is eliminated; Yemen is heavily bombed; Somalia is shattered; Sudan is divided and crippled; Pakistan is severely hurt and controlled; Syria is destroyed to the rubbles and the mission is almost accomplished.

“Qatar has also provided training grounds.
In 2014, American public TV (PBS) visited
one of these training camps and interviewed
some of the trainees.”

People talk about Iran but Iran is always safe as it’s in secret collaboration with the ‘Great Devil’ – partners in crime! Israelis don’t trust Iran and they want to tackle it just like Iraq and Syria. Let’s see how long America can afford to stand between the two.

“The U.S. government has been arming,
funding and training these extremists both
covertly and overtly since 2011.”

It is easy to criticize America and its EU allies for bringing misery to the Middle East. But one should not forget the role being played by the Arab/Muslim leaders in the bloodshed and destruction of many Muslim countries of the region. Officially (politically) these Arab/Muslim countries do not recognize Israel as an independent state but they covertly join Israeli forces to bomb Syria, Yemen and Iraq.

And here’s the most ridiculous news of the Syrian war:
The so-called wounded terrorists are being treated secretly in Israeli hospitals! They are carried from the Syrian battlefield into Israel for medical help. Israel says (lying as usual) that they are Syrians and they are being treated on humanitarian grounds. Vow! What happens to humanity when Palestinian children, women and elderly are bombed and left to die in the debris? What happens to those Syrians who are brutally killed and injured (by the thousands) by Israeli bombings? Even the hospitals in Syria are bombed by NATO and Israeli planes killing innocent children. And they talk of humanity?

Daesh-ISIS wounded solders are being treated in Israeli Hospitals:
That shows who Daesh and ISIS soldiers really are and where they belong. It’s a blatant lie that Daesh or ISIS are some radical Islamic groups. They are not Muslims! It’s possible though that some ignorant Muslims may have been fooled to join their ranks. Syrians are being killed by Israel, not being saved or treated. They are Israeli soldiers or hired foreign mercenaries who are being treated in Israeli hospitals.

i24news adds:
i24news has learned that some members of al-Nusra and IS are hospitalized in Israel; Israeli Druze protest.
Members of Israel's Druze minority are protesting Monday against the hospitalization in Israel of wounded Syrian fighters from the al-Qaida linked al-Nusra Front.
A statement issued by a group of Druze activists involved in humanitarian aid to their brethren in Syria accuses the Israeli government of supporting radical Sunni factions fighting against the Syrian government.
"As we warned in the past, today it has become a fact that Israel supports all factions fighting the Syrian regime, and supplies them with weapons, and takes in the wounded of all faction, including Jabhat al-Nusra and Daesh," according to the statement issued by the group. "We call on members of the Druze sect to act severely toward Israel's policy."
Asked whether Israel does, in fact, hospitalize members of al-Nusra and Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State organization), the military spokesman's office said: "In the past two years the Israel Defense Forces have been engaged in humanitarian, life-saving aid to wounded Syrians, irrespective of their identity."
According to Israel's health ministry, so far some 1,000 Syrians have been treated in four Israeli hospitals. Many of the wounded are civilians, and some are members of the secular Free Syrian Army rebel group. Doctors say most arrive in serious condition, some even unconscious, dehydrated and with infected wounds. Some lose a lot of blood before reaching medical care in Israel.

According to sources at the Ziv Hospital in the town of Safed, wounded members of the more militant rebel factions are hospitalized in isolation and are not allowed visitors. Some are handcuffed to their beds.

“For years Jordan has allowed the CIA
to run training camps for militant
groups and has granted those militants
safe passage into Syria.”

The Arab/Muslim countries of the Middle East are supporting the Americans and the Israelis in an effort to protect their own asses so that they could remain in power. The reason is that none of the Arab/Muslim leader of the Middle East is supported by his own people. They are ruling by force and they need an umbrella. America/EU provide that umbrella of protection but at a price.

Alliances And Proxies of
The Syrian Front
(From: SCG, published 28 Jan., 2016)

The Map of Alliances
Russia, China and Iran have all explicitly sided with the Syrian government. Russia is providing air support, advanced anti-aircraft missile systems, heavy weapons and training.
Iran, for its part, has troops on the ground.
For the time being, China is more preoccupied with the ongoing tensions in the South China Sea, and has not flexed its muscles in Syria as of yet. However, they should always be considered a wildcard variable.
The current Iraqi government is also a wildcard. In 2015 they began to indicate where their loyalties lay in several meaningful ways. For example they told the U.S. government that new ground operations were not welcome, while at the same time announcing that they intend to look to Russia for military assistance.
The list of countries pushing for regime change in Syria is a bit longer: The United States, France, England, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and Israel. If seeing these characters in bed together strikes you as strange, looking at their motives will clarify things considerably.

A Matrix of Motives
There isn't just one motive for this bloodbath. Rather there is a matrix of motives which intersect in some rather odd places. Of course money had to play a role.
In 2009, Qatar put forth a proposal to build a natural gas pipeline which would have passed through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, to Turkey and into Europe. The president of Syria, however, rejected this proposal. Instead, in 2011, he forged a pact with Iraq and Iran to run a pipeline eastward cutting Qatar and Saudi Arabia out of the loop completely.

It was around this time that jihadists began flooding into the region intent on ousting Assad. The West presented these groups as ‘freedom fighters’.

Sectarian Geopolitics
The vast majority of these militants (ISIS included) are Sunni jihadists, which is significant, because Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Jordan are all Sunni as well. And Saudi Arabia in particular has a long history of spreading their preferred strain of Sunni extremism (Wahhabism) by investing heavily in building mosques, madrassas, schools, and Sunni cultural centers across the Muslim world.
Iran is Shia. The current government in Iraq is Shia, and has strong ties with Iran. The pipeline deal which Assad accepted would strengthen this Shia block, and its regional influence. The Sunnis don't like this, in fact they've even coined a term to describe it: The Shia Crescent.

Israel also doesn't like this "Shia Crescent", at all, and they have decided to work with the Sunnis to form a parallel block to counter balance Iran's influence.
That's why Israel has launched numerous air-strikes against the Syrian government over the years and has provided medical care, logistical support and safe passage to known jihadists.  

Evidence of Criminal Activity
Now, at this point, if you were to ask any of these governments directly why they are arming and funding jihadists in Syria, they would claim that they are only supporting the "moderate rebels", specifically the FSA. However, FSA commanders have gone on record to say that they cooperate with, and conduct joint operations with Al-Nusra (Al-Qaeda's official branch in Syria), and ISIS and Al-Nusra have officially formed alliances, and it is well established that the FSA command has been dominated by Islamic extremists for years.
In this context, the support being given to these groups can only be interpreted as material support for terrorism, which is a crime.

Arming And Funding The Terrorists:
Now the U.S. government has been arming, funding and training these extremists both covertly and overtly since 2011. However this support would have been impossible without the assistance of the regional members of the anti-Assad axis.

For years Jordan has allowed the CIA to run training camps for militant groups and has granted those militants safe passage into Syria.

Qatar has also provided training grounds. In 2014, American public TV (PBS) visited one of these training camps and interviewed some of the trainees. One of the fighters told the reporters that they were being trained "how to finish off soldiers still alive after an ambush."
Finishing off wounded soldiers is a clear violation of the Geneva conventions. It's a war crime. This is a hallmark of a terrorist organization, not moderate freedom fighters.

Turkey has been the primary route for material and personnel headed in and out of jihadist territory for many years. A blatant example of this was 400 tons of weapons that were looted from Gaddafi's (Libyan) armories, shipped to Turkey and then moved into Syria in 2012. At this stage they weren't even trying to hide it, even though it was already clear that jihadists were receiving the lion’s share of the weapons.

Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar also have assisted in the transfer of heavy weapons directly to Al-Nusra by flying hundreds of cargo flights into Syria.

And then there are the infamous Toyota trucks which ISIS drives. U.S. counter-terrorism officials made a show of investigating where they were getting these trucks, but it would have been much simpler if they had just called up the U.S. State Department. According to the PRI, the U.S. State Department has been supplying Toyota Hiluxes (the exact model being used by ISIS) to the FSA for years.
(pic: Isistoyota)
"Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground. The Toyota Hilux is such an important force multiplier, because it could be used both for humanitarian purposes and for operational purposes as well."
Knowing the real chain of alliances between these groups it makes perfect sense that ISIS would end up behind the wheel.
And let's not forget about the oil. At this stage ISIS has reached a point where it no longer needs direct sponsorship. The organization earns an estimated $1 million to $2 million dollars a day through oil sales. The U.S. was aware of this but did nothing to stop it. They didn't even condemn the country which was facilitating the sale of this oil.

Russia, on the other hand, began targeting oil convoys headed into Turkey in November of 2015. Shortly thereafter Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 that supposedly violated Turkish airspace for 17 seconds. In response, Russia released satellite evidence that they claim shows how Turkey is smuggling oil from ISIS. So where is the oil going? We're supposed to just put that little detail out of our minds.

Recipe for Disaster
Clearly it is not in the interest of the anti-Assad axis to eliminate ISIS. The United States and France are keen to make a show of air-strikes and special forces, but what they really want is the ability to operate in Syria militarily. This is the only way they'll have any chance of influencing the outcome.
Trouble is, Russia is dug in. Unlike the United States and France, they have permission to operate in the country, and this has allowed them to set up bases, and a strong anti-aircraft defense grid which at any point could be used to enforce a no-fly zone.

Washington is in a weak position. It can't really win from this angle, so they'll have to find a way to put Russia off balance and retake the momentum.

It's important to remember the real stakes in this conflict. The West is in a state of decline. Their influence is waning. If the U.S. and their allies fail to remove Assad from power what they will be faced with is more than just a strong Shia crescent. If they fail, they risk being edged out of the entire region, and replaced by Russia. This would give Russia an enormous amount of leverage in global energy markets, and this of course has serious implications for the petrodollar. For Washington, this is an unacceptable outcome, so expect the unexpected.

WW-III: The Devil's Alliance, Part-I

WW-III: The Devil’s Alliance

(Part 1 of 2)

(M. Javed Naseem)

It’s not terrorism or extremism
that worries the Devil’s Club.
It’s the de-dollarization!
America’s ship is sinking! So, it’s
resorting to desperate measures
for desperate times. Get ready!
Expect the unexpected now!

We are living the WW-III. The bloodshed of innocent Muslim civilians (women, children and the elderly) continues as the war games progress. The decades old equation is being repeated – the Capitalists versus the Socialists. The only difference is that in the war games of today neither the capitalists are dying nor the socialists. Both groups are killing Muslims only. How smart!

The Zionist West love to build the empires and despite all failures in the past history, they never learnt their lesson. Every empire they built on the foundations of lies, deceptions, aggression, conspiracies, injustice, invasions, colonization and illegal wars, eventually crumbled. They were delivered a shattering blow when they thought that they were invincible. Their arrogant faces were trampled in the dirt. But they never gave up. The Devil is behind them for support.

The dollar ($) sign is the Devil’s ID and with it Devil & Co. has been dominating and controlling the whole world. Its supremacy is established by hook or by crook, through economic policies and through wars. The world is getting sick and tired of that. So, they decided to look for an alternative.

China (and Russia) offered that alternative in BRICS and AIIB (Asian infrastructure Investment Bank). Brazil, India, Britain, Germany and Australia have already announced to join BRICS (their intentions are not clear yet).
There are suspicions that Devil’s allies have joined the BRICS to sabotage it and destroy it from the inside because they can’t do much from the outside.

It is no secret that US leadership
uses the dollar as a weapon in its
economic warfare against those
countries, which reject bowing before
Washington's political elite. 

America and its allies cannot accept that the Dollar’s dominance is coming to an end. They want to keep the world in control at all costs, no matter what! They won’t allow any country to hurt their dominance of the world. So, it's an open war now.

We have seen the fate of those leaders who opposed the dollar's blackmailing – Saddam Hussan of Iraq and Moammar Gaddafi of Libya. They were brutally killed and their well-developed countries ruined to virtual debris. Both Iraq and Libya openly declared their commitment to replace the dollar with the euro and a 'single African currency' backed by gold (Gold Dinar) respectively, for oil transactions and foreign trade. Everybody knows the results.

Hugo Chavez of Venezuela announced to join the Gold Dinar club of Saddam and Gaddafi and he had to face a coup d’etat to topple his government.
American foreign policy is now strongly based on the Wolfowitz Doctrine.

The Wolfowitz Doctrine
“The ‘first objective’ of American foreign and
military policy is “to prevent the re-emergence
of a new rival, either on the territory of the
former Soviet Union or elsewhere that poses
a threat (to US unilateral action).”

*************************************  points out:
De-dollarization continues...
As Simon Black recently concluded, now we can see words are turning into action …
(The Allies) might be too polite to tell the US straight up: "Look, you have $18.1 trillion in official debt, you have $42 trillion in unfunded liabilities, and you're kind of a dick. I'm dumping you."
So instead they're going with the "it's not you, it's me" approach. But to anyone paying attention, it's pretty obvious where this trend is going. It won't be long before other western nations jump on the anti-dollar bandwagon with action and not just words.

Will Iran, China, Russia Push US Dollar
to the Brink of Extinction?

Iran is moving forward to get rid of the US dollar as a means of payment, independent researcher Timothy Alexander Guzman points out, adding that Washington has obviously shot itself in the foot by imposing sanctions on Moscow and Tehran.
The supremacy of the US dollar is in danger: more and more countries around the world are seeking to replace the American currency, independent researcher and writer Timothy Alexander Guzman notes, pointing to a series of Russo-Iranian agreements aimed at stopping mutual settlements in US dollars with foreign countries.
"This past March, Iran and Russia signed an agreement to jointly create a regulation committee to 'oversee inter-bank financial transactions between the two countries.' The positive outcome of the agreements is to avoid any future sanctions Washington and its crony allies use as a financial weapon against its adversaries," Guzman writes in his article for
It is no secret that US leadership uses the dollar as a weapon in its economic warfare against those countries, which reject bowing before Washington's political elite. The US' arm-twisting policies prompted the world's nations, especially oil producers, to seek a substitute for the dollar.
"Iraq, Venezuela and Libya tried to drop US dollars for oil trades but were met with resistance from Washington," Guzman emphasizes.

"America's Ship Is Sinking".
Former Bush official exposes the unfixable corruption inside the establishment.

"This ship is sinking," retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson tells Abby Martin, adding that:

"Today the purpose of US foreign policy is to support the
complex that we have created in the national security state
that is fueled, funded, and powered by interminable war."

The former national security advisor to the Reagan administration, who spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations reflects on the sad but honest reflection on what America has become as he exposes the unfixable corruption inside the establishment and the corporate interests driving foreign policy. "It's never been about altruism, it's about sheer power."

The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 gave birth to a dangerous American ideology called neo-conservativism. The Soviet Union had served as a constraint on US unilateral action. With the removal of this constraint on Washington, neoconservatives declared their agenda of US world hegemony. America was now the “sole superpower,” the “unipower,” that could act without restraint anywhere in the world.
The Washington Post neoconservative journalist Charles Krauthammer summed up the “new reality” as follows:
“We have overwhelming global power. We are history’s designated custodians of the international system. When the Soviet Union fell, something new was born, something utterly new – a uni-polar world dominated by a single superpower unchecked by any rival and with decisive reach in every corner of the globe. This is a staggering new development in history, not seen since the fall of Rome. Even Rome was no model for what America is today.”
The staggering unipolar power that history has given to Washington has to be protected at all costs. In 1992 top Pentagon official Undersecretary Paul Wolfowitz penned the Wolfowitz Doctrine, which became the basis for Washington’s foreign policy.
The Wolfowitz Doctrine states that the “first objective” of American foreign and military policy is “to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere that poses a threat [to US unilateral action] on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.” (A “hostile power” is a country sufficiently strong to have a foreign policy independent from Washington’s.)
The unilateral assertion of American power begin in earnest during the Clinton regime with the interventions in Yugoslavia, Serbia, Kosovo, and the no-fly zone imposed on Iraq. In 1997 the neoconservatives penned their “Project for a New American Century.” Neoconservatives set out their program for removing seven governments in five years (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran). Since 9/11 Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries and now confronts Russia both in Syria and Ukraine.

The European governments, especially Germany, the UK and France, are complicit in the move toward nuclear war. As long as Europe remains nothing but an extension of Washington, the prospect of Armageddon will continue to rise. If NATO continues to exist, NATO together with the neoconservative ideology of American hegemony will make nuclear war inevitable.
