Jihad Al-Nikah Lie

Syria / Iran / Lebanon:

The Syrian pro-regime Facebook pages are spreading the photo below under the title of: “Aleppo – Free Syrian Army and Da’ash: verdicts to cut off the heads of some women who did not sign to hold the so-called Jihad Al-Nikah ( عقد جهاد النكاح)”! What a great lie!

First of all, the photo circulated is not even from Syria, not even a true photo for a true incident that occurred somewhere in Syria, it was taken in Al-Nabatieh, South Lebanon, and it is all about a play to commemorate Ashura (tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar) in 2007!

The play organized by the local families in South Lebanon to commemorate -what they claim- A’al Al-Bayt illiterate women were being beheaded by their own men because they were illiterate on Ashura. Of course this is untrue and the play reflects nothing but the brutality of those people when dealing with women. These behaviors and ideas are imported from Iran to our Arab countries, and unfortunately its finding fertile environment in our communities and being digested by the ignorant there.

Iran know nothing about respecting women. Women are being treated as third degree citizens there. Iranian authorities must be held accountable for not respecting neither women nor Human beings in general.

Fighting Against God?!

Occupied Ahwaz / Iran:

Hossain Ghaderi, Yousef Moradi and Azad Saghezi, three Sunni prisoners of conscientious of Rajaei Shahr Karaj prison, are sentenced to two years in prison.

According to Iranian Human Rights activists, Hossain Ghasemi and Azad Saghez, the habitants of Javanrood, and Yousef Moradi, the habitant of Sar-Pol-Zohab were arrested by intelligence service and security forces in Summer 2012, and after 6 months being kept in solitary confinement, had been transferred to Rajaei Shahr prison.

After near 16 months uncertainty and suspends, in a sentence by Branch number 28 of revolutionary court of Tehran, by governance of judge Mohammad Moghisehei, they were sentenced to two years in prison on Wednesday November 13, 2013.

Just to let you know, these three Ahwazi Sunni prisoners were charged with Moharaba (Fighting against God), in spite of the fact which their only activity was prompting in mosques. They were also exempt as usual from the right of having a legal counsel during judicial process and investigations.

“Iranian courts, and particularly the revolutionary courts, regularly fell short of providing fair trials and allegedly used confessions obtained under torture as evidence in court. Iranian law restricts the right for a defendant to access a lawyer, particularly during the investigation period”. Human Rights Watch World report.

This Iranian blasphemy must be stopped, and the so-called Iranian judicial authority which is supposed to implement democracy and Human Rights when ruling, are serving their dictatorship regime by accusing innocents from Al Ahwaz with such high rank and unjustified charges. Those criminals should be held accountable for what they are doing!

Fair trials and the Rule of Law should prevail always and prisoners should be held within a reasonable time, not for years without investigations. Also, they should be allowed to be represented by a legal counsel and to remain silent. However, none of these are respected in Iran.

Stronger Turkey

Turkey:

Yesterday, November 16, 2013 Turkey witnessed a historical reconciliation in Diyarbakir.

President Recep Teyyeb Erdogan with the presence of Masoud Barzani announced the starting of 1300 future projects for the region in Diyarbakir.

This reconciliation is a very essential step towards ending the Kurdish/Turkish dispute. I’m really happy to see Barzani and Erdogan standing together in Diyarbakir, Turkey. We need more of these reconciliations and dialogues to end conflicts and bloodshed. War was not and will never be a solution for any dispute.

Kurds residing in Turkey have an obligation to respect their Turkish Government and understand that they are part of this country and not a tool by Turkey’s enemies to erupt problems in their own country.

Erdogan’s blessing step will create for Kurds a sense of belonging to Turkey. The two components of this country must work together to create a stronger Turkey that is capable to defend itself against its enemies.

What do you Expect?

Occupied Ahwaz / Iran:

Mohammad Marvan Ashoubi (son of Abdullah) a seven year old Feyshouri children, from the suburban of Fars province, has died in a game, by mimicking execution!

After the recent public execution of two Feyshouri citizens, in Shiraz’s Adelabad prison, the curiosity of this innocent child drove him to a deadly game, which ended to his death!

Sadly, this child was playing and dangling on a rope that was used for drying clothes on the yard while a toy-car was under his feet which moved and caused choking and losing his life.

What do you expect from children who attend and watch public executions in Iran to do? I do not understand why Iranian Government does not ban children from attending such barbaric and outdated punishments! And why such punishments are still legal there in the first level? When you allow children to attend such barbaric and outdated not punishments but crimes, you are allowing this to happen!

Today’s lesson: Children are great imitators. So give them public executions, they will imitate it privately at their homes, and die! It’s that simple!

I urge the international community and United Nations to stress more to ban public executions in Iran. This have to be stopped! Iran should be held accountable for such crimes!

The so-called “Islamic Republic”

Occupied Ahwaz / Iran:

Sunni Muslims in parts of Tehran were prevented from holding their own congregational prayers to celebrate the Eid festival (Eid-el Adha). Iranian security forces barred worshipers from entering the houses that they had rented for the purpose of prayer, knowing that there is not even a single Mosque for Sunni worshipers in Tehran, Iran (the so-called Islamic State).

“The Iranian Government should follow through on the so-called Iranian President Rouhani’s promises to improve access to Human Rights for religious minorities”. That should include allowing Sunni Muslims, a minority in Shia-dominated Iran, to gather and pray freely in their own mosques in Tehran and other areas of the country.

During the early morning hours of October 16, 2013 dozens of uniformed and plain-clothes security agents surrounded Sadeghiyeh rented house (Known as a Sunni worship place) in northwest Tehran, one of the largest and most important Sunni prayer sites and mosques in Tehran province. They prevented Sunni worshipers from entering the building to mark Eid-el Adha, the feast of sacrifice. Iranian Sunni activists also reported that security forces prevented worshipers from entering another prayer site, in Saadatabad, in northern Tehran!

It makes me feel sick when Iranian leaders keep uttering shamelessly “The Islamic Republic of Iran”, unfortunately they represent nothing of Islam.

Do they even read Qur’an if they are truly Muslims? Have those hypocrites read this; “And who are more unjust than those who bar Allah’s places of worship and prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a mighty chastisement and great punishment”. 2:114 Holy Quran.

Endless Pain

Syria:

On October 26, 2013 in Houla, Homs, another tragedy occurred. With little to eat, many Syrians must find what they can from their land. Abdul Hakim Al Ali is just a kid, he was picking olives with his family when ASSad’s terrorists shelled them. He was torn to shreds (Video below). The force of the blast was so brutal, pieces of olive leaf are embedded in his body.

Seventeen months after the Houla Massacre, where 110+ women and children were slaughtered by knives and machetes by ASSad’s terrorists, the children of Houla still live and die in fear and endless agony!

They blamed us when we started asking for an International interference in Syria to stop the ongoing atrocities there! They know the world more than we do. They told us; “a world full of hypocrites can never be relied on”! Isn’t “Silence” a war crime though?
