    best airline miles credit card?

    This is a U.S. site and you can see how Amex tries to control qualifying purchases e.g. they can only be made at certain retailers. You'll see that they give less of a discount for essential/expensive/large purchases like petrol. So I'd be surprised if they were not able to control for gift cards in some way. https://www.creditdonkey.com/blue-preferred-review.html

    Pompeos ultimatum to Iran

    The only purpose for issuing this IMHO is to sow dissension within Iran. But as we saw with Gaddafi even if you capitulate and deliver everything that is asked of you, regime change just happens by another means. And regime change does not mean a better alternative it can mean a failed state as the Libyans are experiencing.

    Pompeos ultimatum to Iran

    Here's the full list: Declare a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear programme to the International Atomic Energy Agency, and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity. Stop uranium enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing. This includes closing its heavy water reactor. Provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the country. End its proliferation of ballistic missiles and halt further launching or development of nuclear-capable missiles. Release all US citizens, as well as citizens of partners and allies, detained on spurious charges or missing in Iran. End support to Middle East terrorist groups, including Lebanese Hizballah, Hamas, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi government and permit the disarming, demobilisation and reintegration of Shia militias. End military support for the Houthi militia and work towards a peaceful political settlement in Yemen. Withdraw all forces under Iranian command from Syria. End support for the Taliban and other terrorists in Afghanistan and the region, and cease harbouring al-Qaeda. End the IRGC Quds Force’s support for terrorists and militant partners. Cease threatening behaviour against its neighbours — many of whom are US allies. This includes threats to destroy Israel, and firing missiles into Saudi Arabia and the UAE. It also includes threats to international shipping and destructive cyber attacks.

    Islamic Jokes and Humor

    Some more, from Zahr al-Rabi': Page 99: There was once a young man who went to the Hawza and he would write back to his associates about the learning he had gained. And they would all be impressed with his knowledge. But then he started sending back the jokes he had learnt and they would look forward with anticipation to seeing the next one.

    Bro, it's only been a couple of days fasting and it's already getting to you.

    Islamic Jokes and Humor

    Not had much success with this joke previously on Shiachat, but perhaps the more religiously inclined visiting this thread will get it. Goharshad turns to her architect and asks, 'great iwan, but where's the mosque?'.

    Are vows necessary for Mutah?

    It could also mean that they don't think he's a 'keeper'.

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    Thanks for your reply. Just for the record, there is an alternative Christian perspective: https://jmeca.org.uk/statement-patriarchs-and-church-heads-jerusalem

    is music (k-pop) haram

    I've not really come across any doctors prescribing it, to be honest.

    You make music sound like some sort of medication.

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    Thank you @Christianlady So your advice to the church leaders in Jerusalem is that they should hand over the keys to their churches to the Jewish settlers? And not make the fuss that they are currently making?

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    But European Jews also had dealings with the Third Reich and the Americans willingly took on Nazi rocket scientists. You have the British rulers of Palestine handing over parts of his country to Jews, without so much as a vote (the lack of which is used today to beat Muslims over the head) and on the other, you have a competing global power. What's Husseini supposed to do? I think that photo of Husseini meeting Hitler is one of those modern day tropes meant to label someone as being beyond the pale - without any further discussion.

    Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    Surely this one is about cause and effect. The Jews had lived in the same Arab countries for millenia, indeed an 18th century western traveller refers to meeting Jewish tribes in today's Saudi Arabia. Of course, this does not deny any form of persecution of Jews in Muslim countries, but at the same time, the scale of this never seemed to have reached the levels it had done in Christian countries. And since you are on a Shia site you'll be aware that Shias also faced prejudice in Ummayad lands. Suddenly the state of Israel arises and it is after this event that the Jews leave Muslim countries. And there is a debate as to the extent to which this was due to force on the part of Muslims or encouragement on the part of Israel. Certainly, while I am aware of eastern European Jews fleeing to Palestine before the founding of Israel, I am not aware of Arab or Iranian Jews doing the same.
