Stop ‘Cruelty’ in the name of ‘Religion’

Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead.

The Frankenstein West has created with the help of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, other Middle East royals and Israel is seeking the blood of its creators. It has now gone totally out of control and taking the toll of the innocent lives around the globe without discrimination and with impunity.

In Qatif, a famous oasis mainly populated by Shia minority of Saudi Arabia,  two suicide bombers blew themselves up one after the other outside the Faraj Al-Omran Mosque. No casualties were reported. A witness said a car bomb was detonated near the mosque, which was followed by a suicide attack just before 7 p.m. Police have launched an investigation into the attack.

It would be interesting to recall that Daesh had carried out a series of bombing and shooting attacks in Saudi Arabia since 2014 that have killed scores of people, mostly Shiites and members of the security services. In January, a suicide bomber attacked a mosque in Al-Ahsa, killing four people before worshippers disarmed and tied up an accomplice who had shot at them. In October last year, a gunman opened fire on worshippers in Qatif, killing five people before he was shot dead by police.

The attacks against Shia Minority continue with the connivance of WAHABI establishment that is the running the country.

And in Jeddah,before that at 2:15 a.m., a suicide bomber blew himself up near the US Consulate in Jeddah. Security officers confronted him as he moved suspiciously at a parking lot of the Dr. Soliman Fakeih Hospital. Two policemen were wounded lightly in the attack. The bomber was name as Abdullah Qalzar Khan, an expat from Pakistan, who lived in Jeddah with his wife and her parents and came to the country 12 years ago to work as a private driver. Photos taken from the scene showed the bomber’s body dismembered by the blast.

After, Istanbul, Dacca and Baghdad, the Daish, Al Qaida or any other name of terrorists outfits you may recall, have targeted the holiest site of Islamic world. Four policemen were killed and five others were injured in Madinah when a suicide bomber struck in the vicinity of a police post outside the Prophet’s Mosque, according to the interior ministry.

The bombing took place in a parking lot between the city court and the mosque, visited by millions every year. When security officials became suspicious of an individual who was heading to the Prophet’s Mosque they approached him resulting in him triggering his explosive belt killing four of the officers and injuring others. Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television said an initial death toll from the Medina blast included three suicide bombers and two security forces officers.

A video sent to Reuters by a witness to the aftermath of the Medina bombing showed a large blaze among parked cars in the fading evening light, with a sound of sirens in the background. Videos circulated on social media showed a car burning and at least two security officers lying on the ground and two others lay crumpled near a burning car. The bomber also died in the attack, which took place at the time of iftar. No worshipper was injured in the attack, said a press correspondent from the scene. The blast came after mosques were targeted in both Jeddah and Qatif.

It seems to be coordinated campaign of attacks by the so-called Islamic Terrorists around the globe to revenge heir defeat in Iraq and Syria. The attacks all seem to have been timed to coincide with the approach of Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that celebrates the end of the fast.

History in the making in Iraq as US leaves for home

Is the worst over? Is Iraq a stable country today ? It may appear a rather sick joke to the families and friends of the 61 young army recruits killed in Tuesday’s bomb blast in Baghdad ? the deadliest this year.

HISTORY WAS in the making in Iraq. Heavy armoured military vehicles, with their headlights on, in the predawn freshness were crossing, hopefully forever, the barbed wires and the metal gates that make the border between Iraq and Kuwait.

It was an early Thursday and the last day for many US troops, who were desperate to go back home to their families. For them one chapter of life was closing forever. They were part of a brutal history few would prefer to call the war of liberation.

History was made but it wasn’t what the protagonists would have loved to make. It was a retreat that left behind more problems than solutions. After seven years and five months of the US-led invasion, the last American combat brigade was leaving Iraq, well ahead of President Barack Obama’s Aug. 31 deadline for ending US combat operations there. Was there any thing to celebrate ?

The cruel, barbaric and unjust dictatorship of Saddam was brought to an end by this war. Today, Iraqis are free who can vote no matter their vote has not materialized in making a new government for months. Can they celebrate that liberators or going after doing their job ? Not really!

The US presence is far from over. Scatterings of troops still await departure, and some 50,000 will stay another year in what is designated as a non-combat role. They will carry weapons to defend themselves and accompany Iraqi troops on missions (but only if asked). Special forces will continue to help Iraqis hunt for terrorists.

America sacrificed at least 4,415 men going by Pentagon’s count as of Wednesday in this war which was fought thousands of miles away from their shores. It took months of preparation to move out the troops and armour across more than 500 km of desert highway through potentially hostile territory at night.

Is the worst over? Is Iraq a stable country today ? It may appear a rather sick joke to the families and friends of the 61 young army recruits killed in Tuesday’s bomb blast in Baghdad — the deadliest this year. Every day scores of people continue to get killed in the lawlessness after the US-led invasion.

Still this is a complacency that suggests a degree of confidence in both Baghdad and Washington, a belief that that the things are brightening up.

There is still no elected government and the political greed of the main parties that refuse to put national interests above their own is destroying the semblance of illusive stability. Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, refuses to talk with leader of the second largest party Nuri Al-Maliki, unless the latter apologize for a TV taunt that Allawi’s Iraqiya group was a minority bloc.

Children of Iraq could teach these politicians what maturity means. Iraq is still burning and its political leaders acting like spoilt brats. One hopes that better senses would prevail and Iraq would come back to normalcy. I hope it won’t be another mirage!
