  1. They already did. No more airstrikes on cities they say so the incubators are safe now. They celebrated by showering Khadhmyyiah with fireworks and noon could just strike them from air or spy on their whereabouts. Also, it is not the opinion of Muqtada alone. Marjyyiah announced it last friday that this war should not be made as excuse to reestablish the occupation of Iraq by Americans It also stated that Iraq needs help from friends.
  2. isis has a surveillance drone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdNCQrwD1YQ So, to be clear, sunnis and Shia in Iraq gov agreed to : Stop the Iraqi air force allow America and its allies to take over the Iraqi air and do air strikes as they wish allow ISIS to have their own drones without a plan to protect the iraqi air. Congrats, they finally agreed on something. Everyone can airstrikes the Iraqis except the iraqis themselves. Well done Iraqis, well done.
  3. Every word in this article is worth reading : http://rt.com/op-edge/188688-syria-iraq-coalition-isis-guilt/
  4. our brother's representatives in parliament asked the prime minister to crush with iron fist on the Shia Militia who are the volunteers for Jihad against ISIS So, the airstrikes on ISIS were withhold AND now the target are the volunteers who were fighting ISIS. These are the demands of our brothers.

  8. I am not sure and I don't know. I also have not cmd across a certain historical answer, most historical books leave the reason behind the ansar gathering as unknown but they also paint it as non threatening. If they were conspiring then the usurping action by Abu Bakr would have encouraged them, they might even been able to use it against him in black mailing in order to get some positions in his government. But history dose not record these motives for the Ansars. The were blamed for being tricked by Abu Bakr bay'ah by both Imam Ali and Saydah Fatimah.
  9. Those guys are the real target of US in Iraq: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/17/world/middleeast/shiite-militias-pose-challenge-for-us-in-iraq.html?_r=0 Once a leading killer of American troops, the militia is spearheading the fight against the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL. That means Asaib Ahl al-Haq and the United States military are now fighting on the same side, though each insists they will not work together. Asa'ib sent an announcement that it is leaving the battle field once US enters it. They said that the only battle field that will gather them with US is when they are fighting against each other. After a decade of support from Iran and a new flood of recruits amid the Islamic State crisis, the Shiite militias are also now arguably more powerful than the Iraqi security forces, many here say, limiting the ability of any new government to rein them in. The Asaib Ahl al-Haq fighters and the group’s official spokesman insisted that their vigilante attacks protect all Iraqis, Sunnis as well as Shiites. “We have been able to track the sleeper cells of ISIS and secure almost all of Baghdad — about 80 percent,” said Naeem al-Aboudi, a spokesman for Asaib Ahl al-Haq, in a gleaming, leather-paneled conference room at its heavily fortified headquarters in an elite neighborhood of the capital. Asked about complaints of discrimination and police abuse against Sunnis under the previous government, Mr. Aboudi said the whole question was backward: “I think Shiites are the real marginalized and persecuted community in Iraq. We have more problems as Shiites than the Sunnis, even though the election showed we are the majority.” Asaib Ahl al-Haq, usually translated as League of the Righteous, is considered the most formidable of Iraq’s three large Iranian-backed militias. The second is Kata’ib Hezbollah, which shares the Iranian patronage and ideology of the Lebanese group of the same name, but has no other known links to it. The third is the Badr Corps, led by Hadi al-Ameri, a lawmaker in the governing coalition who served as minister of transportation in Mr. Maliki’s government. United States officials blame Asaib Ahl al-Haq for a long series of deadly attacks on American forces during their occupation of Iraq. In 2007, Sheikh Khazali led an attack in Falluja that killed five United States Marines, American officials say. He was captured and held for three years by American forces, then released in 2010. He was ultimately transferred to the Iraqi government and then released at the same time as his group released a British computer expert it had held hostage. But Iraqi and American officials denied any prisoner exchange. But by January 2012, virtually as soon as the Americans were gone, Mr. Maliki had invited the group back into Iraqi politics as a counterbalance to the influence of other powerful Shiite militias. Many of the group’s leaders were soon reported to be returning from exile in Iran. Asaib Ahl al-Haq came to be known as the armed support for Mr. Maliki’s Shiite political faction. Mr. Aboudi of Asaib Ahl al-Haq said his militia could accept American airstrikes or military attacks against specific targets, “under the supervision of the Iraqis.” But he does not trust the Americans either, he said, arguing that Washington’s ultimate goal was to divide Iraq and thus increase Israel’s relative strength. There is a good comment on the site too : Mark Thomason is a trusted commenter Clawson, MI 6 hours agoThere are many problems inherent in the very concept of militia. However, in Iraq it has a huge advantage over the regular army. The militia is motivated. It is volunteers doing what they believe in. They'll fight -- not well maybe, not disciplined maybe, not following orders maybe, but fighting instead of running. The Iraq Army has the same problem as the other armies we created at great expense to serve under governments we set up, in Vietnam and Afghanistan for example. They are unwilling, just there for the money or because they couldn't avoid it. Whatever their training, whatever the expense devoted to them, they won't use it because they won't fight if they can avoid it. They won't follow orders either, because they'll be running. One must use what one has on hand to use. We should have created better, but we didn't, and now here we are.

  11. well, more jokes: Iraq and Syria pose Saudi dilemma - failed states or Iran proxiesThu Aug 28, 2014 1:45pm GMTge[-] Text [+] By Angus McDowall and William Maclean RIYADH/DUBAI (Reuters) - With militant Islamists gaining the upper hand in Syria's rebel movement and grabbing big tracts of Western Iraq, Saudi Arabia's ruling family faces an increasingly uncomfortable dilemma. The Al Saud have long seen the conflicts in Iraq and Syria as a pivotal battle for the future of the Middle East, pitting Sunni Muslims against a radical, revolutionary, Shi'ite Iran. But in both Syria and Iraq the kingdom's preferred Sunni allies have lost out to more militant groups, and Riyadh faces its nightmare scenario of watching two key Arab states become proxies for its rival Tehran or, worse, perpetual failed states. What the Al Saud dynasty most wants in both countries is a stable government with strong Sunni representation that could act as a bulwark both against what they see as Iranian expansionism and a Sunni militant ideology that threatens their own rule. In Syria, where the Saudis are a leading backer of rebel groups including the secular Free Syrian Army and the Islamic Front, which includes less militant Sunni fighters, Riyadh still has some options to influence the outcome of the war. But in Iraq, its most populous neighbour, with which it shares an 850 kilometre (530 mile) frontier, Saudi Arabia has few tested friends or established links with Sunni groups, and knows that the majority Shi'ites will continue to dominate power. "In terms of strategic games, the Saudis are waiting to see what will happen," said Mustafa Alani, an Iraqi security analyst with close ties to Riyadh's Interior Ministry. "They don't have any group they can rely on among the Sunni Arabs. They've been absent since 2003, and it cost them a lot." For the Saudis, the militant advance this summer might have given a welcome bloody nose to Tehran and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, whom it has accused of being "Iranian 100 percent", but it did so at the partial expense of their own security. While Islamic State's territory does not yet extend to the Saudi border, and appears unlikely to pose a military threat, many of the kingdom's citizens have joined the group, raising fears they will turn against their own government. For the Al Saud, most Islamist factions represent a dangerous ideological challenge to their system of dynastic rule, leading to their campaign against the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and cooperation with Washington to tackle al Qaeda. The ruling family has grown so worried, spurred by memories of attacks by Saudi veterans of Iraqi fighting last decade, that King Abdullah in February decreed tough new laws and has mobilised the powerful clergy to preach against radicalism. "We have done and will do everything we can to stop the spread of this corrosive poison in our country and region and encourage all other governments to do the same," Riyadh's ambassador to London, Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf, wrote in a British newspaper this month. GIFT TO IRAN Saudi authorities say they are constantly in touch with Iraqis. And the kingdom may have some ability to use traditional connections to influence Sunni tribes with extensive membership on both sides of the border. "There is a long tradition of tribal elders from Iraq and other Arab countries visiting Saudi princes and other important personalities and petitioning for financial support to help them advance their broad social and political interests," said Neil Partrick, an associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute. Nevertheless, Riyadh has had no ambassador based in Iraq since 1990, when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait and threatened Saudi soil, and relations have soured even further since 2003, when the U.S.-led invasion gave the Shi'ite majority more power. Saudi Arabia is the biggest humanitarian donor to Iraq, following a $500 million gift via the United Nations, said one of several diplomats in the Gulf interviewed for this article. But its attempts to back Sunni political leaders north of the border have been sporadic and unsuccessful. "People think the Saudis have more influence than they do. There are some contacts, but not much," said a diplomat. Diplomats said both Riyadh and Qatar were in touch with a number of "moderate Sunni leaders" in Iraq, whom they supported to defuse growing support for Islamic State radicals. However, such ties are not strong, said Alani. While Riyadh did provide some funding to Iraq's Sunni tribes after Baghdad stopped financing the Awakening movement there, a diplomat said, the connections, mainly through the Shammar tribe of King Abdullah's wife, were limited. Even Saudi religious leaders have little influence over fellow Sunnis in Iraq, most of whom follow different schools of Muslim thought to the Wahhabi school dominant in the kingdom. WAIT AND SEE Immediately after Haidar al-Abadi was tapped to be prime minister, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal described it as the "only good news I heard lately", a sign of how far Riyadh distrusted Maliki. Abadi is from the same political bloc as Maliki, however, and was described by a diplomat as "the lowest common denominator in terms of what was acceptable to everybody". "Abadi is from the same extremist Shi'ite party as Maliki, so we will have to wait to see what his actions are like, not just his words," said Abdullah al-Askar, head of the foreign affairs committee of the appointed Shoura Council, which advises the government on policy. An early attempt to reach out had indifferent results, said one senior Gulf source who declined to be named, though his account could not be confirmed. He said national guard head Prince Miteb bin Abdullah met Iraqi officials after Abadi was nominated to offer advice on tackling the Sunni insurgency, but that they were "less welcoming than expected" and he was rebuffed. "The prince communicated his message with officials working with Abadi and his message was firm and clear that issue of insurgencies must be dealt with firmly," said the source. While the departure of Maliki removes a poisonous personal enmity from Saudi-Iraqi ties, Riyadh also accepts the reality of political and sectarian constraints in Baghdad, said the source. "There's an understanding that for the time being, the prime minister in Iraq needs to be a Shi'ite," he said. Some Iraqis hope the changes in Baghdad could lead to a wider accommodation between Tehran and Riyadh, helping to cool tensions in their country and across the Middle East. "I think there will be positive developments between Iran and Saudi Arabia because of the advance of the Islamic State ... They will both play a role now in Iraq because of Islamic State," Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari told Reuters. But after Saudi and Iranian officials met for their first bilateral talks since moderate President Hassan Rouhani was elected last year, official media in both countries kept reporting of the exchange to a minimum. It was a sign, say analysts, of how far their mutual suspicions persist, and how difficult it will be to work together to tackle Islamic State.

  12. Abu Bakr and Umar. Saqifa is a name of a place, a building from palm trees dried up branches that men gather inside to have a discussion over various public affairs from market prices to political events. Saqifa in itself isn't conspiring, it is what people did back in the days. The crashers were the ones whom their paranoia about others intentions rvealed their own intentions. Along the history we did not hear our Imams speaking negatively about Ansar.

  14. It is a long story. Basically, the details of Salat is not mentioned in Quran. Prophet ordered Muslims that lived with him to pray (as you saw me pray). Meaning, copy my way of prayer. The Shia explanation is that those who claimed Khilafah (Which is not only a political and administrative role as Sunnis like to put it , but the history proves that early Muslims put huge importance on the opinion and verdicts of the first 2 khalifas). So, those who follow an ignorant pseudo khalifa had fallen into many mistakes done by mere ignorance and arrogance. This include the "folding" hands verdict. In all the 4 schools of Sunni fiqh, folding hands is not mandatory. Some said it is permissible , some said it is recommended and some said it isn't the way the prophet prayed. The only aavaible historical narration that explain this innovation is a controversial few lines that say that Omer bin Al khatab saw the improsinoed Zoroastrians folding their arms around their chest while greeting him as a king. He liked the way they show respect to the kings and decided it is a good way to show respect to the King of kings as well. Read this book : http://www.najaf.org/english/book/35/index.htm
