I don't completely agree with this, and worse, it does not posit solutions, yet it is a convincing illustration of the recent turnabout of the Obama administration in the face of current events. I wonder whether he will get a serious lection from the new 70 year King of Saudi Arabia. Would love to be a fly on that wall. Obama, the Shiite, Goes to Riyadh Roger L. Simon Remember how Richard Nixon told us to watch what he does, not what he says? Good advice. Well, Barack Obama — our POTUS who makes Nixon and Clinton seem like Diogenes — thinks like a postmodern agnostic, professes to be a Christian, but acts like a Shiite. During Obama’s presidency the influence of Ayatollah Khamenei’s Iranian Shiite regime has spread across the world like the proverbial wildfire, reaching from North Africa into Iraq, Lebanon (via Hezbollah), Syria (via Assad whose red line on chemical weapons famously faded into invisibility), Gaza (via improved relations with Hamas) and now into Yemen (via the Houthis) and undoub . ...
Prophecies from the Qur’an The triumph of the Byzantines over the Persians 1. The Byzantine and Persian Empires were the super-powers of the time. It was during the years when the few believers were severely persecuted in Makka that the Persians utterly defeated the Byzantines. They had sweeping victories, and conquered Aleppo, Antioch, and the chief Syrian provinces, including Damascus. Jerusalem fell to their arms in 614-615. The Christians were massacred and their churches burnt. The Persian flood of conquest went on to Egypt, and reached as far as Tripoli in North Africa. Another Persian army ravaged Asia Minor and reached right up to the gates of Constantinople. The Makkan pagans rejoiced greatly, and redoubled their taunts and persecution against the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, whose Message was a renewal of the Message of Jesus preached in Palestine. The following Qur’anic verses, which were revealed just at that time, gave certain tidings of a very near victory of the Romans over ...
[The Arab Spring (Arabic wave of demonstrations and protests (both non-violent and violent), riots, and civil wars in the Arab World that began on 18 December 2010 and spread throughout the countries of the Arab League and surroundings. While the wave of initial revolutions and protests had expired by mid-2012, some refer to the ongoing large-scale conflicts in Middle East and North Africa as a continuation of the Arab Spring, while others refer to the second wave of revolutions and civil wars post 2012 as the Arab Winter.

Facing Threats From ISIS And Iran, Gulf States Set To Join Forces December 14, 2014 A member of the Saudi border guards mans a machine gun at the border with Iraq in July. Since the so-called Islamic State launched its offensive this summer in Iraq, Saudi Arabia has sent thousands of troops to the region. There is now a recognition … that if the problem of ISIS is not solved by the region, then it will reach the doors and the gates of the Gulf. - Faisal Yafai, UAE journalist “We should be at the forefront of fighting ISIS.

MNLF, MILF concede to OIC-supervised talks Cotabato City– The Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Moro National Liberation Front agreed to hold quarterly dialogues under the supervision of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to harmonize their separate peace overtures with Malacañang. The consensus was reached by both groups during the October 13-14 meeting of the Bangsamoro Coordination Forum (BCF) in Manila which the OIC facilitated through a special envoy, Ambassador Syed El-Masry, a representative of the Egyptian government. The OIC, a bloc of more than 50 Muslim states, including petroleum-exporting countries in the Middle East and North Africa, helped broker the Sept. 2, 1996 government-MNLF truce.

Should Australia be Involved in Stopping ISIS? Background information (which I've been emailing to various politicians. The time comes when following the overseas corruption-conflicts becomes relevant. Anyone else can send similar emails). With talk about the rise of ISIS in Iraq and whether we should become involved, you should consider the following information. As a geopolitical blogger you should know that ISIS has only become a formidable force because of backing from various nation states such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan and Qatar - states in religious and economic opposition to the nations targeted by these extremists. The US has deliberately failed to act against ISIS or its Middle Eastern support network because they are also involved in using the group as a tool to put pressure on the pro-Iranian Maliki Government, now removed, and to attack Syria. This is why early requests from Iraq for air support were denied. You should also realise that the present air attacks conducted by the US agains ...
A study has found no significant rates of antibodies against Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in one Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region, suggesting that the virus has not been circulating in humans for long, and that the majority of the population remains susceptible to infection. The results of the study by Aburizaiza et al., was published in the January 2014 issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases, (Vol. 20 (2)).      The study involved 130 blood donors and 226 slaughterhouse workers from Jeddah and Makkah (Saudi Arabia) sampled during 2012. Serum samples were analyzed using the recommended staged serological approach: screening of IgG and IgM antibodies by conventional IFA based on MERS-CoV-infected and non-infected cells (EUROIMMUN AG; Lübeck, Germany), followed up by confirmation by discriminative recombinant IFA based on viral spike proteins and plaque-reduction neutralization assay. Only eight sera were positive in the screening test, and these reactions were subs ...

Arab Unofficial Aid and the Rise of Islamic Extremism in Africa The Islamic factor in Arab-Sub-Sharan African relations dated back to Seventh Centuries when Arabs infiltrated Africa to proselytize Islam through trade (slave trade in most cases) and invasion- - as in the case of North Africa. Since then, Islam played a major role in cementing of the relations between the two worlds. In the heydays of anti-imperialism movement, which was orchestrated by the leaders like Jamal Abdul Nasir, Kuwameh Nkorma, Arabs and Africans backed one another to liberate some Southern African countries and expel Israel from the occupied territories of Egyptian’s Sinai and Palestine. In order to assure the continued support of Africans, the oil -rich Arab countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait employed foreign aid to entice African to remain faithful to the Arab cause of liberating their lands from Israel. While this Arab African cooperation was deemed as strategic politically and economically from the point views of Afric ...

This is the first of a two part series. Jihad in Islam is the call to fight and go to war and be ready to die for the victory of Islam against the enemy, who is defined as an infidel. The call for Jihad is seen, by some religious scholars, as a higher spiritual value. To die for your religion is seen as an honor and is defined as martyrdom whereby the martyr is guaranteed heaven and all its privileges, including not being seen as dead but as alive in the kingdom of God. The concept of dying and sacrificing your life for God is more common in most of the major ...

Amnesty urges Obama to criticize Saudi human rights record Amnesty International urged on US President Barack Obama to break silence on human rights violations in Saudi Arabia during his visit to the country on Friday. The London-based rights group called on Obama to take a firm stance against discrimination and systematic violations in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Obama was also asked to express dismay at restrictions on women’s driving as his brief visit to Riyadh coincides with a campaign against the driving ban in the country. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that forbids women to drive. “It is crucial that President Obama sends a strong message to the government of Saudi Arabia that its gross human rights violations and systematic discrimination are unacceptable. A failure to do so would undermine the human rights principles the USA purports to stand for,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International. “For too long, the US ...
The agreement between the Real Madrid Foundation (RMF), the club’s social outreach arm, and the Prince Salman Foundation is to be signed by Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Salman and RMF President Florentino Perez. Perez is also the head of Spanish construction company ACS. Real Madrid sealed a sponsorship agreement with Saudi Telecom (STC) six months after playing an exhibition match against Riyadh’s Al-Nassr Club. As part of the deal, STC is entitled to use 12 minutes of every Real Madrid home game the team played for promotional purposes in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and Indonesia. It also guarantees that 70 Saudis can do summer training with Real Madrid, and offers Real Madrid mobile subscribers the chance to attend local and international club matches. The schools in the Middle East and North Africa offer the European premier league clubs the opportunity to generate cash and scout for young talent. They also allow ruling Arab elites, rattled by mass anti-government protests across the Middle East a ...
India’s largest automobile company, Tata Motors, has decided to establish its third largest automobile manufacturing plant in the Eastern Province. The proposed plant is expected to manufacture 100,000 Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles a year and create 4,000 to 5,000 job opportunities for Saudis. The Indian company unveiled plans to make investments worth 100 million pounds to build the plant to meet the growing demand for its cars in the Middle East and North Africa region. The reports showed that the Tata facility will be an assembly plant. This means that the plant needs only a small number of workers. Apart from this, there is no need for high expertise to run the facility. Hence, it makes no difference if the plant is located in India or Saudi Arabia. In both cases, it would neither solve the rising unemployment problem among Saudis nor add anything to the Saudi economy. By establishing such assembling plants, we are emulating countries that made such experiments more than 50 years ago. Moreover, we ...
Friends, This fact shouldn't be undermined that Muslim Arab Nations frequently present the Arab-Israeli conflict as a religious conflict of the Muslims against the so called "infidel Jews & Christians". Thus, the Arab countries declare this war with Israel using Islamic religion as an ideology to mobilize the Arab as well as non-Arab Moslem nations. To understand the role of religion in the Arab-Israeli conflict it is essential first to understand the expansion of the Muslim empire in recent history and its ideology and goals. Islam started with Mohammad in the 7th century, in Saudi Arabia. Mohammad included in Islam the idea of jihad (holy war) to spread Islam by the use of force. Islam was spread rapidly to all the Arab nations of North Africa and the Middle East. Islamic religion in the hands of the Arab nations has turned into a tool of Arab nationalism and xenophobia. Many non-Arab nations have adopted Islam as the official state religion. These countries extend from Mauritania, at the Atlantic Ocean ...

Hassan PurifiedTruth Mohammed Faez Saleh: Please note The European Union has today called for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to respect the public worship of all faiths. In a motion drafted by Portuguese MEP Ana Maria Gomes, the European Parliament said that while Saudi Arabia was an important strategic partner, Saudi authorities should accept that it is a human right for individuals to worship any religion in public. Issues like terrorism, Israeli-Palestinian peace, the Syrian conflict, post-Arab-Spring transition, and better relations with Iran, were all key areas in which the EU said Saudi co-operation was needed. However, it made clear that if this partnership "is to be effective, [Saudi Arabia] must respect basic human rights and civil liberties". MEPs demanded that the Saudi state show "respect the public worship of any faith and to foster moderation and tolerance of religious diversity". Saudi Arabia has a poor track record on religious freedom. In February 2013, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul ...
9/25/2012 Address to the United Nations by Barack Obama OBAMA: Mr. President, Mr. Secretary General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to begin today by telling you about an American named Chris Stevens. Chris was born in a town called Grass Valley, California, the son of a lawyer and a musician. As a young man, Chris joined the Peace Corps and taught English in Morocco, and he came to love and respect the people of North Africa and the Middle East. He would carry that commitment throughout his life. As a diplomat, he worked from Egypt to Syria, from Saudi Arabia to Libya. He was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked, tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking Arabic, listening with a broad smile. Chris went to Benghazi in the early days of the Libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. As America's representative, he helped the Libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future ...
Religions can be Dangerous The Islamic Curtain separating Muslim countries from the rest of the world is every bit as impenetrable as the Iron Curtain ever was, but who hears a word of it in the media? In Saudi Arabia, for example, which Americans died to protect, there is a total blackout on anything Christian; one cannot carry a Bible on the street or have a Bible study in the privacy of one's own home. Even in our embassy, over which the American flag flies, Christian church services are banned. It is officially the death penalty in Saudi Arabia and some other Muslim countries (and enforced unofficially elsewhere) for a Muslim to convert to any other religion. Only Muslims can be citizens of Saudi Arabia. Even in Arab countries where shari'a (Islamic law) is not enforced by the government, Islam's influence prevents freedom of speech, of the press, of religion and of conscience. In PLO territories, Christian Arabs, who once had freedom under Israel, now suffer persecution, imprisonment and death for th ...

Know more about Islam Islam is the second largest religion in the world. Only Christianity has more followers. People who follow the religion of Islam are called Muslims. Today, almost 1 billion people call themselves Muslims. Most Muslims live in a string of countries that extends from Morocco in North Africa to Indonesia in Southeast Asia. BIRTH OF ISLAM An Arab trader named Muhammad was the founding prophet of Islam. He lived in Mecca, a busy trading town in Arabia (now called Saudi Arabia). Mecca had temples built to honor various pagan gods. Pilgrims visited these temples to worship statues of the gods. One day, while fasting in a cave, Muhammad had a vision. He returned to Mecca to preach a new religious message. He said there is only one god, not many, and no one should worship idols (statues of gods). He called on the people of Mecca to surrender themselves to Allah, as he called God. ISLAM GAINS POWER Muhammad’s message angered some Meccans. In the year 622, they forced him to flee to another c ...

Saudi Arabia Facing a Plethora of Fundamental Challenges " WELL IT'S UPTO THE RULERS OF SAUDI ARABIA TO ENGAGE AND LISTEN THE SAUDI MASSES OTHERWISE...!!!KAC The deterioration of Saudi Arabia's political influence has contributed to a growing sense of national decline. King Abdullah's reform efforts have lost steam. An essay by Tarek Osman In the early 1970's, Saudi Arabia's King Faisal reportedly confided to senior members of the Royal Family his fear that, just as in a single generation the country had moved from "riding camels to riding Cadillacs… the next generation could be riding camels again." His warning seems more apt than ever. Saudi Arabia, long one of the Arab World's most rigid societies, now finds itself in a state of flux. Its relations with the West – and with the United States in particular – have frayed in the turmoil unleashed in the Middle East and North Africa by the Arab Spring. Meanwhile, a group of women provided the latest sign of domestic restiveness by defying the Kingdom' ...

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — The United States and Saudi Arabia promised each other and the region Monday that they would continue to work together, with Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal saying "our two friendly countries" are busy dealing jointly with troublesome issues like Syria, Iran and the Mideast peace process. "There is no room for emotion and anger here, but rather for policies of commonsense and level-headedness," Saud said at a joint news conference with Kerry. Nevertheless, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived for his visit to Saudi Arabia as differences between the two countries intensified over the Obama administration's policy toward war-torn Syria, its movement toward a possible dialogue with Iran, a regional rival of the Saudis, and its stance on Egypt's military coup. Saud also expressed his deep frustration with the United Nations, where the Saudis recently rejected a seat on the Security Council because of its inability to achieve progress in the Syria or for ...
Sifu Shaun Rawcliffe went from studying architecture to working with ex-SAS officer and survival expert Eddie McGee. He taught CQB to the Armed Forces, trained alongside the Gurkha regiment and had a stint in the Falklands during the ‘conflict’ before working in close protection in North Africa and then Saudi Arabia for a notable Saudi family.

southweb.org Amnesty International raps Saudi human rights abuses October 21, 2013 Rights group Amnesty International has censured Saudi Arabia for not addressing the “dire human rights situation” in the kingdom. Amnesty published a report saying a paper was submitted to the United Nation detailing “an ongoing crackdown including arbitrary arrests and detention, unfair trials, torture, and other ill-treatment over the past four years,” ahead of a meeting in the Swiss city of Geneva on Monday. The submission includes a “new wave of repression against civil society, which has taken place over the last two years.” Philip Luther, the director of Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International said the Saudi government’s “previous promises to the UN have been proven to be nothing but hot air. It relies on its political and economic clout to deter the international community from criticizing its dire human rights record.” Luther noted that Riyadh has not abided by the main recommendation ...
Assalamun Alaikum Brothers And Sisters Of Islam - Did You Know That Many Muslims in the United States celebrate Eid al-Adha with prayers and social gatherings. The Eid al-Adha services can attract thousands of Muslims in various places such as Chicago (Illinois) and Orlando (Florida). Many Muslims of many heritages, including West Africans, North Africa, Pakistan, Eastern Europe, wear traditional clothes and share their national dishes. It is a time for prayer, sharing meals, handing out gifts and wishing one another well. Eid al-Adha follows from the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, in which Muslims are required to make at least once in their lives. Eid al-Adha is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice because it traditionally includes the sacrifice of an animal permitted for food (eg. a lamb) as an act of thanksgiving for God’s mercy. Some Muslims seek out a farm where they can carry out the sacrifice, but many also send money to their native lands to help fund a sacrifice. Eid al-Adha lasts fo ...
Report explains reason of Rojava revolution ANF - News Desk 27.09.2013 14:42:41 The Kurdistan Centre for Strategic Research Studies has issued its yearly report regarding the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa. The report is explaining reasons of the outbreak of the Syrian revolution and interventions by regional powers represented in Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia which supports the opposition, and Russia and Iran that which supports the Syrian government. The report is describing all deals and transaction aking place between those parties concerning the extension of Qatar gas pipeline through Syria into Europe. The report highlights the revolution of Rojava (‘’Western Kurdistan’’) which started in 19th of July 2012 and the difficulties faced by the revolution today.
Few view the thread of Islamic history outside the prism of the governmentally “approved” and “authorized” catechisms of hadith (Sahih). The Imams who compiled these “authorized by the government hadiths (Sahih) had no intention of setting up schools of thought or mathabs that became vehicles that promoted the policies, or approved the legitimacy or even authority of the rulers or the philosophies they espoused. Many of the non-Shia Muslim religious leaders were appointed and supported by corrupt Khalifs. Many of the scholars however, were not corrupt but were mild mannered and learned to look the other way. They promoted Islam the way the rulers wanted or, like Imam Malik and others we shall point out, attempted to avoid the pressure of the ruling regimes by shunning public life until they were, like the Shia Imams, hunted, hounded and killed. The same state of affairs were handed down into the modern era and the best examples are today’s Imams in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc. They do not objec . ...
US Warns Citizens of Terror Threats in Nigeria, Other Countries Article | September 26, 2013 - 1:57pm | By Mu'Sodiq Adekunle The US State Department has warned its citizens to be vigilant of terrorist actions and violence in Nigeria and some other countries in Africa and beyond the continent. Other regions specifically mentioned by the department included Europe, Asia and the Middle East. US citizens were also warned of terrorist activity in Lebanon, Iraq, Algeria, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Two years ago the US department had issued a similar warning to its citizens to beware of Nigeria terrorist sect, Boko Haram and Al-Shabab militant group in Kenya. Then, it predicted that the rise of militant groups in Africa, especially Nigeria, may make the region break up in 2015. In the release, Americans were also been warned of ongoing al-Shabab attacks in Somalia, and of a threat by terrorist cells in Mali and Nigeria. This was contained in a worldwide warning of "terrorist actions and violence" against Ame ...

According to the latest revision of the World Urbanisaton Prospects report by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, a two per cent average annual urbanisation growth rate will exist across the MENA region until the end of the decade, as predominantly youthful populations gravitate toward cities in search of improved work opportunities and better lifestyles.

Spread of Islam I INTRODUCTION Spread of Islam, rapid expansion of the religion of Islam through conversion and military conquest in the 7th and 8th centuries. Muhammad, the founder and prophet of Islam, began preaching his visions in Mecca (in present-day Saudi Arabia) in 610. Within 25 years he and his followers, called Muslims, had gained control of the entire Arabian Peninsula, and Islam was fast becoming the world’s third great monotheistic religion, after Judaism and Christianity. By 650 an organized Islamic State ruled Arabia (also known as the Arabian Peninsula), the entire Fertile Crescent (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine), and Egypt; by the early 700s Islam dominated a wide area, stretching from the fringes of China and India in the east to North Africa and Spain in the west. The remarkable speed of this religious expansion can be attributed to the fact that it was accompanied by military conquest. Muhammad drew Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula to Islam by his forceful personality, the prom ...

Egypt's revolution provides economic hope for region's weak heart UPDATED: Jul 4, 2013 15:35 GMT Egypt is often described as the heart of the Middle East and North Africa. At nearly 85 million people, it is the most populous country in the region. If the heart is not healthy, the rest of the body does not function well. That is where we are in the region today, after a rapid-fire 72 hours in Cairo. Read more: A new and uncertain order in Egypt There is a cash crisis in the country. The central bank estimates foreign exchange reserves were running at about $16 billion by the end of May, less than half the levels reached before the first revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak after three decades in power. Of that total, $12 billion came from a handful of oil rich Middle East countries, notably Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Libya. Without those hand-outs, the situation would be even worse than it is right now. Egyptians rightly complain about fuel shortages, intermittent power outages and the rising cost of food. Th ...

Jihad: Islam’s 1,300 Year War Against Western Civilisation Apr 16th, 2012 // No Comment By Arthur Kemp. For centuries, violent Muslims have been trying to capture Europe for Islam. Sweeping out from its origin in Saudi Arabia, Islam has expanded through violent conquest into North Africa, the Middle and Near East – and very nearly into Europe itself, attacking through Spain, Italy, and the Balkans. Each time, the Islamic hordes were turned back by a united European military effort. Today, the Islamic invasion is not being carried out with sieges, scimitars, or cannon, but rather by immigration, birth rates, and demographics. Given current trends, Europe is set to be overrun before the end of this century. Finally, this book dares to say what must be done if Europe is to avoid succumbing to the new invasion. The choice is hard, but is one which will determine whether Western Civilisation lives or dies.
Salafist terrorism has its roots in a 1962 meeting in Mecca.   18-19, 2013 -- French intelligence report from 1962 provides blueprint for Middle East upheaval   French President Francois Hollande, President Barack Obama, and the other Western members of the G8 are following the script of a document agreed upon by the World Muslim League, operating under Saudi influence, which met in Mecca from December 13 to 18, 1962. At the Mecca meeting, the participants, who came from countries around the Islamic world, agreed to adopt the precepts of the Muslim Brotherhood. WMR has obtained the contents of a Secret file that contains a report on the meeting which was prepared by Jean-Louis Soulie, the French ambassador to Saudi Arabia.   The World Muslim League and its Muslim Brotherhood ally saw Islamic regimes coming to power in nations of the "Islamic crescent" stretching from North Africa to the Philippines. In fact, NATO and its Gulf Cooperation Council allies have helped to introduce radical Sunni ...

Let me see if I have this straight.The Sunni Muslims hate the Shia Muslims, both have declared war on each other...swore total destruction of each other. The Sunni and Shia Muslims have declared Jihad against America and Israel.swore total destruction. Now for the hard part. Iran is Shia, Egypt is Shia, Hamas is Shia, Palestinians are Shia, Syria is Shia...Saudi Arabia is Sunni. Jordan is Sunni, Emirates are Sunni. half of Iraq are Sunni, the other half is Shia.then the Druze, Kurds, and Alevi hate everyone. North Africa Muslims go where the money is. SO, my question is this. Why in the *** are we supplying one dime to either the Sunni's or the Shia in a civil war. They are our enemies. Let them settle their own hate amongst themselves, we'll have them on our shores soon enough. Muslim-on-Muslim War is a win-win for Christianity and America.

Gunboat and Dollar Diplomacy. Typical Western policy championed by the head hunchos - USA. We are being sucked into a religious war with international ramifications. Chairman Mao/Chou En Lai once remarked that WW2 was a European Civil war, they were right. This one has the potential to make WW2 look like a picnic. Russia is almost duty bound to support Assad because around it you have the Caucus - Dagestann uzbekhistan, Azabyjan and all the rest ofthe Tans and Jans. These are hotbed of Islamicism. Mainly Sunni adhering to the spread of Wahabism by Saudi Arabia - Sunni head Huncho. Assad is Alloite a derivative of Shia, so is Hezbollah and a plethera in North Africa adhering to Iran Shia's Head Hunch. Sending arms to the rebels some of which have openly declared their allegiance to Al Queda is playing with fire. Mission creep by the west, make no mistake this is precisely what's going on can only precipitate in a nasty regional war which will spill over in the Russian Republics, North Africa, Pakistan and ...
THE GOLDEN AGE OF ISLAM Islam, the youngest of all the world's religions emerged on the world scene in 622 CE (Current Era) with the Hijra (migration), of Prophet Muhammad (s) and his small band of followers, from Mecca to Medina in northwest Arabia. One hundred fifty years later the Muslim government where Allah is the ultimate authority had become the Islamic Empire, encircling the Mediterranean Sea from Syria and the Tigris and Euphrates Valley east to southern China and western India, south through what had been the Persian Empire and Saudi Arabia, west through Egypt and across North Africa, and north through Spain to the Pyrenees. With the founding of the city of Baghdad and the establishment of the Abbasid Caliphate (Muslim religious/political leaders, successors of the Prophet) in the mid-8th century, Islam's golden age began to emerge. For 400 years, from the mid-9th century until the sack of Baghdad by the Mongols in 1256, Muslim culture was unparalleled in its splendor and learning. A number of ...

AFRICA -culture The culture of Africa encompasses and includes all cultures within the continent of Africa. There is a political or racial split between North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, which is in turn divided into a great number of ethnic cultures.[1][page needed] [2][3][4] African cultures are diverse and varied and not static, and like most of the world have been impacted upon by both internal and external forces.[5] Africa’s cultural regeneration has also been an integral aspect of post-independence nation-building on the continent, with a recognition of the need to harness the cultural resources of Africa to enrich the process of education, requiring the creation of an enabling environment in a number of ways. In recent times, the call for a much greater emphasis on the cultural dimension in all aspects of development has become increasingly vocal.[6] During colonialism in Africa, Europeans possessed attitudes of superiority and a sense of mission. The French were able to accept an African as ...
L'Arabie saoudite investit dans l'énergie solaire! Saudi Arabia plans to export solar electricity to Europe 04/06/2013 | Saudi Arabia, which is planning massive investment in Renewable Energy, hopes to export solar electricity to Europe in winter, when cooler temperatures reduce the need for air conditioning in the kingdom. It would be viable for Saudi Arabia to export up to 10 GW, the equivalent of 10 nuclear plants, via North Africa and Italy or Spain, Khalid Al Sulaiman, vice president for Renewable Energy at the King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy said. He added solar energy capacity in Saudi Arabia is "almost non-existent" at the moment, with only about 10 to 11 MW of capacity installed in the entire country. But the kingdom has huge ambitions to build renewable and nuclear capacity as it tries to reduce domestic oil consumption. The world's top oil exporter said in February it aims to install 24 GW of renewable power capacity by 2020 and 54 GW by 2032, which would make Saudi Arabia . ...
KATHMANDU, JUN 04 – Amids fears that the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) might invade Nepal, the government on Monday wrote to hospitals and laboratories asking them to be extra vigilant. The coronavirus is a respiratory illness that has claimed 33 lives and affected 23 people globally. The coronavirus is seen in various countries of the Middle East, including Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates along with cases from three countries in Europe—France, Germany and Britain and Tunisia in North Africa. The Epidemiology and Disease Control Division (EDCD) has sent letters to National Public Health Laboratory (NPHL), the state-owned referral laboratory, and Walter Reed Research Unit Nepal (WARUN), a private laboratory, asking them to conduct tests of MERS-CoV and H7N9 on the patients suffering from various respiratory illness. The cornovirus has been a major threat in the Gulf region while H7N9 has been a threat in China. Similarly, the EDCD has also written to a ...

Dubai's Emaar among top MENA stock picks Monday, 3 June 2013 12:41 PM Dubai’s Emaar, developer of Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest building – was named as one of the top stocks in the Middle East and North Africa which should be core holdings for investors seeking exposure to the region, according to the report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research. The report said there were four main reasons Emaar was listed among the most attractive stock in the region. The report believed Emaar continued to demonstrate strong retail growth and it showed improving profitability from Dubai hotels. It has also accelerated project launches and developments in Dubai and Saudi Arabia and enjoyed a stronger balance sheet and reduced exposure to non-yielding assets like Amlak, analysts found.

Will Saudi Arabia end child marriage? By Suad Abu-Dayyeh, Special to CNN Editor’s note: Suad Abu-Dayyeh is the Middle East and North Africa consultant for Equality Now, an advocacy group for the human rights of women and girls around the world. The views expressed are her own. Three years ago, 12-year-old Fatima was "sold" into marriage to a man more than four times her age. Her father, unemployed and addicted to drugs, sold her into wedlock for about $10,500, money that he then used to buy himself a car. You might be asking yourself how this possible. The answer – because there is no minimum age of marriage law in Saudi Arabia. But Fatima didn’t give up. With the help of Equality Now, her uncle and our Saudi partners, Fatima beat the odds earlier this year to secure something many thought was impossible given the cultural norms she was pushing up against – a divorce. And with new regulations being considered that would effectively set a minimum age for marriage of 16, Saudi Arabia may finally be ...
MASONS' PANDORA BOX. What is happening in Niger today and maybe in Chad tomorrow, is a consequence of the french intervention in Mali and Mali was rendered insecure because of the intervention in Lybia. Just like when you scratch a pimple you spread the pus and make other pimples appear all around, after the Middle East, the fight against terrorist Salafists may inflame the whole North Africa. When, thirty years ago, Jimmy Carter and his Masons masters removed my uncle, the late Shah, from his throne and imposed Khomeiny to my People, they didn't know what kind of Pandora Box they were openning. Since then on, violent Islam has constantly grown in the world. The United States tried to break this violence through two wars, in Afghanistan and Iraq and we know now these wars were pure failure. To the point The Global Fraternal Network decided to change its policy. With Barak Obama the Washington's Masons made a deal with the Muslim Brothers with the help of Saudi Arabia and Qatar as intermediates. Through th ...
SLAVERY IN ARABIAN SOCIETIES FROM THE DARK AGES These extracts are taken from the book Maafa: African Holocaust. "While Europeans targeted men in West Africa, the 'Arab' trade primarily harvested the women of East Africa to serve as domestic slaves, wet nannies and sex-slaves in the infamous harems. This trade trickled over millennia is estimated to have taken 10 million Africans via the Eastern route to India, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, and also via the Trans-Saharan route to North Africa and the Mediterranean, where in slave markets such as Ceuta, Morocco, Africans were purchased to work as servants in Spain, Portugal, and other European countries. This trickle trade really only boomed in the 18 th and 19 th century, prior to this period the trade between Arabia and Africa was more focused on iron, ivory and animal products. There is very little evidence in the sources to support the claim that slaving was ever a major enterprise of any significance prior to the 18 th century boom. LEGACY AND DIFFERENCE ...

Hazrat Usman Ghani,,,...RA... THIRD Caliph of Islam PART 2. A brief review of the conquests during Hadrat Uthman’s caliphate Thus we see that during the caliphate of Hadrat Uthman (R.A.) the Muslims conquered a number of new areas. They took over Antalya and Asia Minor in the west including Cyprus. Afghanistan, Samarkand, Tashkent, Trukmennistan, Khurasan and Tabrastan in the East and North East; and Libya, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco in North Africa. In this way Muslims were ruling over a vast part of Asia and Africa viz. Afghanistan, Turkmennistan, Uzbekistan, Persia or Iran, Iraq, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and of course Arabia (now Saudi Arabia) and Yemen including the Gulf states. All these countries and places were under one flag, and the Islamic State was far bigger than any one of the past mighty Byzantine or Persian Empires. Islam as a religion was also prevailing in Abyssinia (now Ethiopia) and in some parts of East ...
Alcohol & Drugs Alcohol consumption in Muslim regions of the world (Middle East and North Africa) increased by 25% in 5 years. In 2007, Afghanistan produced an extraordinary 8,200 tonnes of opium (93% of the global opiates market). Saudi Arabia is the world’s 6th largest consumer of anti-impotence drugs, demand is 10 times that of Russia. In 2010 Malaysia was the world's tenth largest consumer of alcohol. Antisemitism Pew survey finds all 7 Muslim-majority nations polled have a negative opinion of Jews (2-9% positive). Antisemitic incidents around the world more than doubled in 2009 over the previous year. Pew survey finds 100% of Jordanians have either "somewhat unfavorable" or "very unfavorable" views of Jews.

Today's Missions News: WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Eight of the top 10 persecutors of Christians worldwide are Islamic States, according to the Open Doors’ 2013 World Watch List. Islamic Extremism is the prime persecutor of Christians in the world today, and Islamic extremists, either in government, or in violent opposition to that government, are the sources of that persecution, said Ron Boyd-MacMillan, chief strategy officer for Open Doors. In fact, the uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East that began nearly two years ago have resulted in an even greater persecution of Christians. “The Arab Spring has turned into an Islamic Winter for the Christians in the Middle East,” said Boyd-MacMillan. “In every country where a regime has been deposed — such as Tunisia, Libya, Morocco and Egypt — Islam is still in power and putting pressure on the Christian minority.” Saudi Arabia was the worst persecutor second only to North Korea, which practices a cult-like worship of the ruling Kim . ...
"The so-called “Arab Spring” is an initiative by Obama and his foreign policy advisers, Clinton in her capacity of Secretary of State, and others including some of the most powerful people in the world. International bankers, the power brokers and string pullers. It is a plan to reshape the Middle East and North Africa, and change the geopolitical balance of power. It’s not about some feel good mission to free the oppressed. Never was. It’s about the U.S., through the CIA, using groups ideologically aligned to Al Qaeda aligned to overthrow various Middle East nations to install regimes controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. _ It’s a globalist agenda, using the blueprints and agenda created by Saudi Arabia _ With regard to Libya, it was in March of 2011 when the Clinton State Department, under orders of Obama, appointed Ambassador Stevens as the point man to the Al Qaeda linked Libyan opposition forces to topple Qaddafi.

WORLD NEWS AFGHANISTAN BRITISH-CONTROLLED OBAMA-SAUDI-QATARI COALITION NOW MOBILIZED TO PUT THE TALIBAN IN POWER IN AFGHANISTAN January 1, 2013 • 1:56PM Having made the Islamic Sunni Jihadis his battering ram to break down Islamic nations and slaughtering of thousands in the Middle East and Maghreb nations in North Africa, President Obama is now utilizing his failed Afghanistan policy to re-introduce the Taliban as the future keepers of Afghanistan. An article by former Indian Ambassador M.K. Bhadrakumar in theRussia & India Report of Dec. 31 said a de facto core group of the U.S., Pakistan and Afghan government, with an outer circle comprising Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, has surfaced. Britain, as usual, is hovering somewhere in the shade playing indeterminate but critical roles underpinning the U.S. strategy. The objective of this core group is to hand over power to the Taliban in 2014 when majority of foreign occupying forces plan to leave Afghanistan and trigger yet another no-holds-barred civil ...

From Plato’s book: "Won't he smile in welcome at anyone he meets (Jews, Christians), saying that he's no tyrant, making all sorts of promises (2008) both in public and in private, freeing the people from debt, redistributing land to them, his followers (pigford, Solyndra, Unions), and pretending to be gracious and gentle to all (The Obama bow China, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Japan, etc.)." However after a series of unpopular actions (Obamacare, National debt, General Motors, TARP part 2, Ending don’t ask don’t tell, etc. etc.), including stirring up a war, Egypt, Libya, Syria, North Africa the leader begins to alienate some of his most ardent advisers who begin to voice their misgivings in private(Daley, Gen James Jones, Patraeus, Gen. Allen,) Following a purge of these advisers the tyrant attracts some of the worst elements of the state to help him rule Jarrett, Hillary, Panetta, Holder, Geithner, S.

What is Sharia law !! a must read !!! Sharia developed several hundred years after the Prophet Mohammed's death in 632 CE as the Islamic empire expanded to the edge of North Africa in the West and to China in the East. Since the Prophet Mohammed was considered the most pious of all believers, his life and ways became a model for all other Muslims and were collected by scholars into what is known as the hadith. As each locality tried to reconcile local customs and Islam, hadith literature grew and developed into distinct schools of Islamic thought: the Sunni schools, Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi'i, Hanafi; and the Shiite school, Ja'fari. Named after the scholars that inspired them, they differ in the weight each applies to the sources from which sharia is derived, the Quran, hadith, Islamic scholars, and consensus of the community. The Hanbali school, known for following the most Orthodox form of Islam, is embraced in Saudi Arabia and by the Taliban. The Hanafi school, known for being the most liberal and the ...

Teaser ::: Last month, Stevens played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials. Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials.
More key points from the 30 Years After Conference: (1) Ambassador Dennis Ross and Ambassador Mark Wallace of UANI warned us that "2013 will be the decisive" on Iran; and (2) Iran expert Patrick L Clawson reminded us that most leaders around the world (and most people in the State Dept) view Iran from the lens of nuclear proliferation. They could not care less about the threat to Israel, Iran's state sponsorship of terrorism, or even the violent brutality of the regime towards its own people. But they do care if Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons will lead to a nuclear domino effect where every country in the Middle East and North Africa - Egypy, Turkey, Saudi Arabia - will start or restart nuclear programs. That is their nightmare scenario. Good to know as we continue our activism, with UANI leading the way. Learn more about United Against Nuclear Iran. Get involved now. Kudos to Amb. Mark Wallace, Amb. Dennis Ross, David Ibsen and Mohammed Esfandiari for your leadership on this important issue.
Etihad Airways and Saudi Arabia-based nasair have signed an agreement to codeshare on 26 flight sectors across the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.
Amazing how politicians can easily forget about their own blood on their hands , perhaps it helps them sleep better. Weren't Obama and David Cameron the people who so readily bent over for the Arab Oil sheiks and supported a bunch of Islamic Fundamentalists in regime change in Libya?. Then they act surprised when the same fundamentalists burn a consulate and kill an ambassador. When one's foreign policy consists of supporting covert activities and/or carpet bombing the opposition into submission, one shouldn't be surprised when violence is used in retaliation. I keep reading about how these fundamentalists are ethnically cleansing Black Africans in Libya, destroying Ancient world heritage sites in Timbuktu and using North Africa as an Al Quaeda forward operating base. Was it not Obama who preaches democracy yet shuts his eyes when the Oil Sheiks in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Bahrain oppress one ethnic group over the other? .Oh, that's right, those countries' leaders kiss our *** Let's be truthful with ...
5 quick questions please: 1) Why was the movie insulting Prophet Muhammad translated into Egyptian slang and not classical Arabic? 2) Why didn't the governments of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and UAE rage (as normally expected from them) against the movie as the youth of the Arab Spring Countries (who all recently revolted against their governments) did? 3) Isn't it a very cheap cost having a government sacrificing its U.S. embassador and his assistants in exchange of having U.S. navy intervention and multiple bases in Libya, especially in Bin Ghazi, which is extremely close to the borders of Egypt; and especially that the U.S. doesn't have any bases in any Arab countries in North Africa? 4) Wouldn't it make perfect logic having Intelligent Service Bureaus warning U.S. embassies in Islamic countries from the normal raging reactions towards the film and double their security? 5) Is it a coincidence that the media frenzy about the movie coincides with raising Al-Qa'eda flag in Sinai, Egypt, today afternoon? ...

Al-Hamdu lillaah, ".The Muslims in Saudi Arabia, Africa, North Africa and elsewhere are obliged to do their utmost, and if there is a jihad in one country, the surrounding countries should hasten to help them, the closest then the next closest. If one or two states, or three or more, manage to fulfil the obligation, then the rest are freed of responsibility. They deserve to be supported, and it is obligatory to help them against their enemies, because they are oppressed. Allaah has enjoined jihad upon all Muslims, and they must fight against the enemies of Allaah until their brothers are victorious. If they fail to do that then they are sinners, but if sufficient people undertake to do that, then the rest are absolved of sin.” (Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 7/335)

"The charge of sorcery has often been used in Saudi Arabia to punish people, generally after unfair trials, for exercising their right to freedom of speech or religion" - Philip Luther, Amnesty's interim director of the Middle East and North Africa
*** OBAMA'S HERITAGE CLARIFIED *** Sorry I cannot find further 'proof' of this, but reading history and viewing a map of how much of North Africa has been included as ARAB in lineage, this CAN NOT be said to be inaccurate. Obama is 1/2 white, 7/16 Arab, and 1/16 African black. This means that he had, on his father's side, one black great-great grandparent, and the rest on his father's side were Arabs. It is also true that his NAME - Barrack Hussein Obama are (all three) derivative of the Arabian tongue. PROOF? Like so much in history, we'll never have proof positive of this allegation - but neither will it ever be DISPROVED. Would YOU "bow down" to the King of Saudi Arabia?
Man Declared Insane, Sent to Mental Hospital for Faith in Christ A North African man named Mohammed who converted to Christianity from Islam was forced by his relatives to see a psychiatrist to "cure" him of his new faith, Mission Network News reports. Mohammed was in Saudi Arabia for business when he phoned his father to tell him he had become a Christian. His father responded by telling all Mohammed's relatives in Saudi Arabia not to allow his son to leave Islam. The relatives took Mohammed's computer and tried to force him to return to Islam, and his Saudi employer threatened to fire him and send him to prison, but Mohammed managed to return to North Africa in peace. When he arrived, however, a relative took him to see a sheikh, who determined that Mohammed was mentally ill and needed to see a psychiatrist. His family committed him to a mental hospital, where he received electric shock therapy -- which failed to "cure" him of his faith. For a long time afterward, Mohammed was afraid to go to church, bu ...

Islamic radicals in Germany have launched an unprecedented nationwide campaign to distribute 25 million copies of the Koran, translated into the German language, with the goal of placing one Koran into every household in Germany, free of charge. The mass proselytization campaign -- called Project "Read!" -- is being organized by dozens of Islamic Salafist groups located in cities and towns throughout Germany, as well as in Austria and in Switzerland. Salafism is a branch of radical Islam, practiced in Saudi Arabia, that seeks to establish an Islamic empire (Caliphate) across the Middle East, North Africa and Europe -- and eventually the entire world. The Caliphate would be governed exclusively by Islamic Sharia law, which would apply both to Muslims and to non-Muslims. Salafists also believe, among other anti-Western doctrines, that democracy, because it is a man-made form of government, must be destroyed.
