Will the Labour government block Adani going ahead if elected following the UN’s report findings? The proposal was discussed with members of the Australian Jewish community but were any Australian Palestinians consulted? Is the proposal still alive or was it just an idea floated for votes in the Wentworth by-election? Are you aware that calling for a plebiscite for a republic is unlawful and is unconstitutional.

The United Nations warned that Iraq is at a “crossroads” and appealed for restraint, as a bloody four-day wave of violence killed people. Iraq’s new parliament is expected to convene to start the process of setting up a new government, despite deepening political rifts and an ongoing Islamist-led insurgency.

The fighting at Beiji comes as Iraq has asked the U.

Churches remain unharmed and street cleaners are back at work Dearlove says that he has no inside knowledge obtained since he retired as head of MI6 10 years ago to become Master of Pembroke College in Cambridge.

But, drawing on past experience, he sees Saudi strategic thinking as being shaped by two deep-seated beliefs or attitudes. First, they are convinced that there “can be no legitimate or admissible challenge to the Islamic purity of their Wahhabi credentials as guardians of Islam’s holiest shrines”. But, perhaps more significantly given the deepening Sunni-Shia confrontation, the Saudi belief that they possess a monopoly of Islamic truth leads them to be “deeply attracted towards any militancy which can effectively challenge Shia-dom”.

Western governments traditionally play down the connection between Saudi Arabia and its Wahhabist faith, on the one hand, and jihadism, whether of the variety espoused by Osama bin Laden and al-Qa’ida or by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s Isis. There is nothing conspiratorial or secret about these links:

Literature and Terrorism In an age of terror, how does literature help us transcend our reality, lend perspective to our confusion by pulling us into the past and other cultures, and give expression to our anguish and fear through catharsis? They survived it; so can we. In this course we will define terrorism the way the Arabs define it, as any organized violence, by an individual, group or state, legitimate or illegitimate, against a civilian population, either intentional or unintentional.

Black Water is both a personal and stylistic meditation on terror as well as an indirect indictment of the terror a powerful political leader has over an innocent civilian.

Making True Taubah, repentance and seeking forgiveness

The phrase means “the divine decree and the predestination”; al-qadr derives from a root that means to measure out. Muslims believe that the divine destiny is when God wrote down in the Preserved Tablet “al-lawh al-mahfooz” several other spellings are used for this in English all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written. According to this belief, a person’s action is not caused by what is written in the preserved tablet, but rather the action is written in the tablet because God already knows all occurrences without the restrictions of time.

The phrase reflects a Muslim doctrine that Allah has measured out the span of every person’s life, their lot of good or ill fortune, and the fruits of their efforts.

Videos from the group’s territory have shown Wahhabi texts plastered on the sides of an official missionary van. Saudi practices also followed by the group include the establishment of religious police to root out “vice” and enforce attendance at salat prayers, the widespread use of capital punishment, and the destruction or re-purposing of any non-Sunni religious buildings. It condemns later caliphates and the Ottoman Empire for deviating from what it calls pure Islam, and seeks to revive the original Wahhabi project of the restoration of the caliphate governed by strict Salafist doctrine.

Following Salafi-Wahhabi tradition, ISIL condemns the followers of secular law as disbelievers, putting the current Saudi Arabian government in that category. Islamic eschatology One difference between ISIL and other Islamist and jihadist movements, including al-Qaeda , is the group’s emphasis on eschatology and apocalypticism — that is, a belief in a final Day of Judgment by God, and specifically, a belief that the arrival of one known as Imam Mahdi is near.

ISIL believes that it will defeat the army of “Rome” at the town of Dabiq , in fulfilment of prophecy. References to the End Times fill Islamic State propaganda. It’s a big selling point with foreign fighters, who want to travel to the lands where the final battles of the apocalypse will take place.

It is a hard fight. It’s extremely difficult, day after day, when you face people and say, “If Sharia law is taken to its logic this is what things are going to look like” and you come across people who say, “You got it all wrong. I wasn’t used to arguing with vice presidents. People who are viewed as “insulting” Islam are regularly threatened with violence, including death.

This happens inside and outside Islamic countries, occurring in the form of legal sanctions in the former, with efforts to institutionalize such prohibitions everywhere, so that Islam could not be criticized even, for instance, in the United States. Yet most of the genuine insults to Islam these days come from Muslims themselves.

If anyone’s purpose was to discredit Islam by vicious actions done in its name, there is now abundant evidence that this is the program of many Muslims, including several internationally recognized Islamic states.
