  1. Please delete/ban my account. I used to get angry at those people who would publicly announce their 'withdrawal' from SC, but now I know why. I PM'ed two separate admins, and even a mod to try and tell the admins to delete me, but nothing... Salaamun `Alaykum to everybody.
  2. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=617_1386786542 **WARNING**: don't watch it if you don't want your day/night to get ruined (this ruined my night). At 3:20, you could see the terrorist taking out a grenade and tossing it at the group of people, while they all run with devastation. What would have gone through their minds at that moment? And to think this happens to Iraq almost on a daily basis. Iraq has one of the highest orphanage per capita, you can help by donating here: http://www.iraqiorphanfoundation.org/ (just thought I'd put that in there since this really tore me apart). In this bombing attack on a hospital, children and doctors were among the 52 dead. What kind of a savage does it take to commit these atrocities? P.S. - disregard the comments on that video.
  3. Why? What does Iran gain from US's departure? Maybe the wanted "the greater serpent" away from the ME? Anyways, for you to say that Iran's foreign policies are solely for Iran's interests and not for Islam, makes me think... that you think, the Hawzas in Iran have a course in politics. With vast amounts of scholars and pious people in the government (although there are also several 'bad apples'), what makes us think we know better? After all the politics or whatever you want to call it, most surely this announcement of disapproval by Iran would have gone through their highest ranking scholars, who are we to question their Islamic opinions? (wasalam)
  4. Just ordered it as well. The wait will be pretty long (18-26 days). Small price to pay for knowledge.
  5. Al-Nabek Back Under SAA's Control BEIRUT — Syrian government troops supported by the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah took control of a strategic crossroads Monday in far western Syria and reopened the country’s main highway to the coast, according to state-run Syrian media and rebel activists. The capture of the town of Nabek from rebels trying to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad is considered critical to transporting the remnants of Syria’s chemical weapons stores out of the country for destruction. Syrian state television claimed the capture happened on Sunday, but Assad-sympathetic news outlets in neighboring Lebanon said that the town was brought completely under control after the eastern section was captured on Monday. An otherwise nondescript village in the far northwestern Damascus suburbs, Nabek sits along the main highway connecting Damascus to the Mediterranean port of Tartus, where international experts have said Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles will need to be loaded onto ships for disposal. The head of the global chemical weapons watchdog group said Monday that fighting could delay the transfer of the most dangerous chemical weapons – scheduled for destruction by Dec. 31 – but that their destruction would meet the final deadline of the middle of 2014. “In view of the circumstances in this country, it will be quite difficult to meet this timeline,” Ahmet Uzumcu, in Oslo to accept the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday, told a news conference. “There are very demanding timelines that we want to fulfill and I’m confident that the deadline of end of June next year (to destroy the weapons) will be met.” The capture of Nabek came three weeks into an operation mounted by Syrian army troops, members of the National Defense Force, a militia of regime loyalists, and Hezbollah’s Shiite fighters to clear rebels from the Qalamoun region along Syria’s mountainous border with Lebanon. Government forces, backed by heavy air and artillery bombardment, have driven rebels from most of the area, with the exception of the rebel-held town of Yabrud. Rebel forces were expected to counterattack, though their ability to launch a major offensive was expected to be hampered by what forecasters say may be the most powerful winter storm to hit the region in a decade, bringing the first significant snowfall to the rugged mountain area this season. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for much the week. The al Qaida-affiliated Nusra Front has been given responsibility for coordinating rebel forces in Qalamoun, though rebel commanders say Nusra and fighters from another al Qaida affiliate, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, do not make up the majority of the rebels. “(The rebels) have been pushed back from Nabek,” said Abu Omar al Hueijeri, a Lebanese activist and rebel fighter from the nearby Lebanese city of Arsal. “They will attempt a counterattack tomorrow if they can in the storm.” Hueijeri said rebels forces had been unable to resist the combination of aerial bombardment and foreign reinforcements, which included Iranian soldiers. “The regime air power with Hezbollah and Iranian troops have made it very difficult to hold the towns in the face of such death,” Hueijeri said. Local aid groups in Lebanon called for extra supplies and assistance for hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in eastern Lebanon as the war passed its 1,000th day. Both Hezbollah and rebel military fighters said they expect the next, and final, phase of the fight for Qalamoun to center on Yabrud, the largest population center remaining in rebel hands along the border with Lebanon. Its fall would break a major rebel supply line between Lebanon’s Arsal, which is fiercely loyal to the rebels, and the contested suburbs of Damascus. Such a break would be catastrophic for the rebels. “If Yabrud falls we will be cut off from the battle,” Hueijeri said. Read: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/12/09/211106_syrian-government-forces-seize.html ------ My notes: - If SAA does manage to Yabrud from the terrorists, it'll put them in a great position heading into the 'negotiations.'- As the article mentions, it's starting to get chilly in those parts of Syria and the terrorists will have a huge disadvantage.
  6. Masumeen Islamic Centre of Hamilton, Canada (just thought I'd say I've been there).
  7. I have similar attitudes towards the Pakistanis rallying day and night against the US drone strikes being carried out ON terrorists in FATA. That is where all the Afghan terrorists went to after they got booted from their turf, and they are pouring in from FATA. Why are the Pakistani protesters so stupid as to stop the killing of terrorists who will target them after the drone strikes stop? The US drone strikes in FATA are GOOD. The civilian casualties are always a risk you have to take to prevent more civilian casualties from taking place. There are a lot of Shi`as in FATA also...
  8. The US was supposed to help Iraq because they made a deal with all of the anti-terror forces (especially the Sunni Sahwa militia) to keep supporting them following their withdrawal. The US - as usual, turns a blind eye to its promises. The Iranians weren't the only ones who wanted the US gone, I'd say a decent number of Iraqis themselves wanted the US out knowing full well the repercussions. Did you see the Sadris rally in Iraq after the US withdrawal? They were basically claiming victory as though they were the ones that made the US flee. Now the Sadris are facing the brunt of some of the attacks. The point is - Nouri al-Maliki had no other choice but to tell the US to get the heck off of Iraqi soil. At the moment, the Afghan security forces are far better equipped than Iraq was when the US left. Also, there are far more AQ/ISIL terrorists in Iraq than there are Taliban/other terrorists in Afghanistan. That being said, Afghanistan does face a huge problem of the terrorists returning from their save haven in the FATA of Pakistan. Afghanistan's situation is very sensitive. I'd like to know why the Loya Jirga gave approval to Karzai to sign a deal with the US. Also remember that after after the US left Iraq, it achieved relative peace compared to what's happening now. All the blame has to go towards Syria for fanning the flames of war.
  9. HezbAllah has nothing to do with apology: http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News/Lebanon-News/2013/Dec-09/240394-hezbollah-says-has-nothing-to-do-with-media-apology.ashx#axzz2mxzOFemS Media apology to Bahrain is not our decision: https://now.mmedia.me/lb/en/lebanonnews/524633-hezbollah-media-apology-to-bahrain-not-our-decision In both of the links, HezbAllah says, "Hezbollah said that the apology should go for “the Bahraini people who has showed rare patience for over two years and a half in light of the oppression practiced by the authorities.” Do you think the FSA's main Facebook page (which is laughably its main media outlet - LOL) has everything run by past its leadership. Do you think ISIL propaganda clips are shown to Abu Bakr al-Sa'udi? Do you think AQ's terrorists show Ayman al-Kelbi the clips of the people they have beheaded for approval? Heck, if ISIL and AQ can merge without his approval then why can't Al-Manar report things without their leaders' approvals?
  10. War and self-defence are not the only ways. I believe in Saudi Arabia, if a person gets assassinated, the family of the victim gets to choose the fate of the murderer (live or die). In which case a member of the family can take the life of the murderer. I agree with this law, personally. An eye for an eye.
  11. Are you in Kabul right now? Kabul is a relatively safe place right now, as reliable sources (some Afghan friends) have told me. Anyways, Iran didn't just leave Iraq alone after the U.S's 'departure,' their intelligence and Iraqi intelligence have been collaborating and it seems Iran has to improve their own intelligence because their soldiers are still being killed on border attacks. http://www.presstv.com/detail/2013/10/08/328340/iran-supports-iraq-stability-security/ Iran has been fighting the war on drugs along the Afghan border and thousands of soldiers have been killed in the past 30 years. I agree that this isn't the right time for the U.S to leave Afghanistan because it does have potential to turn into the Iraq we have today. But you have to remember, the escalation of violence in Iraq the past year-and-a-half has been because of Syria. ISIS has been revived because of Syria and it won't be hard for Taliban to recruit and brainwash people just like the ISI did. I would say that AFG and the U.S sign an interim, short-term deal 6 months after the Syria crisis is over. That way they can deal with terrorists trying to return home and wreak havoc when they return. But at the end of the day, I agree with Iran in the sense that Afghan security has to learn to cope with fighting terrorists, because they won't go away no matter if the U.S leaves tomorrow or 2 years from now. But I do have one question for Iran: why don't they give, or even sell predator drones to Iraq since Iran does have the technology? And why doesn't Iraq request to buy them from anybody? If the U.S can fight terrorism in AFG and Yemen with predator drones then why doesn't Iraq use predator drones in al-Anbar province where ISIL has bomb-making factories?! I don't get it...
  12. Is there another way to buy this book without Amazon (like maybe Kijiji)?
  13. This is what my crystal ball says: Group A: Brazil and Mexico will advance (although Croatia also has a good chance). Group B: Spain and Holland will advance (even though I hate Holland and would rather have Chile in it). Group C: Cote d'Ivoire and Japan will advance (this group is pretty even). Group D: Uruguay and Italy will advance (Luis Suarez - terrible diver, great player). Group E: France and Ecuador will advance (don't know much about this group apart from France). Group F: Argentina and Iran will advance. Argentina wins the cup (has my favourite players in it). I'd love Iran and Nigeria to advance, but it's not happening. Group G: Portugal and Germany will advance (Germany is a powerhouse so it's a lock while the US, Ghana, and Portugal are good but I'm staying safe with POR). Group H: Russia and South Korea (I hate Belgium [really anti-Muslim people over there] and I'd love to have Algeria advance, but South Korea is expected to win). Argentina vs. Spain in the finals (Sergio Aguero will win!).
  14. *Sigh* I have respect for people who try to get involved in an academic debate trying to seek the truth, but you are just a complete liar who insists on using the same garbage website over and over again even after I've told you and even given you the proof of how that website is filled with lies. You are at par with that Nawasib-owned website. Anybody who takes any information from you or even takes you seriously for that matter, is naive to think that you are actually a serious person. Kind of ironic who you don't follow Abu Bakr's sunnah of being 'as-Siddique' while you are ghayr as-Siddique. http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235016210-how-many-sons-did-imam-ali-have-and-names/ لَعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ
  15. Words that are deemed 'suspicious' :http://rt.com/usa/dhs-list-suspicious-words-302/ If you look under the section of 'terrorism,' you'll find very few words that we don't often use on here. I guess we're all on their list of 'suspicion' (some of us more than others). Even George Orwell couldn't think up something this dreadful. Maybe an author should publish a new book called, '2014.' I really liked one of the statements by Imam Khamenei (ha) when he said that the Iranian youth of 1979 were 30+ years ahead of time because they knew that the US embassy (or something like that) was a den of spies while the rest of the world is finding that out now.
  16. Some people like the paparazzi to be all over them when they are about to deliberately make a scene. A decent PM would've been acceptable, but you wanted to poke the beehive with those one-liners at the end on your way out don't you? Real honourable of you.
  17. Relax brother. This is an Islamic website, we're not trying to include the bad habits ingrained from here in the West into other societies. I'm sure if you used the word in the proper context, say for example instead of the word 'donkey,' you wouldn't have been given a warning. But hey what can I say, I've been under moderator queue for almost half a year without any issue of warning or anything (and I won't say why)... and still have to wait 1-4 days for my posts to show up.
  18. Don't forget the 2 Shi`a teenagers that were martyred a couple of days ago. انا لله وانا اليه راجعون
  19. I also have a question, but I may also be stupid :P Is this guy, Muhammad (محمد الحجيرات): a) A native Iraqi but just darker b) An immigrant from the early days where there were several African-Arabs He's really good, I just want to know. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PX4Y3bKBNU
  20. Saudi and her best buddy Israel are planning to sabotage Iran's nuclear energy program: http://rt.com/news/stuxnet-iran-nuclear-mossad-565/ Iran has some of the most knowledgeable computer hackers in Asia, and they know what's coming their way as well.
  21. Edit title: M.E* news. I remembered some other news that I wanted to include. HezbAllah commander shaheed in Syria: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/11/30/337420/hezbollah-commander-killed-in-syria/ I have to be realistic, HezbAllah has lost somewhere north of 50 men in the past couple of weeks. This is because they have stepped up their attack in Qalamoun with the SAA. Here's an interesting map I found which may or may not be accurate: Iraqi Shi`a brigades have also lost many fighters in the Eastern Ghouta area, but have been gaining ground. May Allah (azwj) grant these shaheeds Jannah.
  22. Brother if the scientist said that than I would question his/her credibility. Most people accept that science doesn't know what was present before the 'Big Bang' or what started the formation of the universe. Even though scientists have performed tests to 'prove' the Big Bang Theory, nobody knows where the original matter came from (which proves something can exist from nothing). The view that the scientist said in your post is wrong in the view of most scientists. One question that always used to confuse me (seriously though) was: "What came first: the chicken or the egg?" But after a while I realized the answer ;)
  23. (salam) I didn't want to make several different topics for each of them so I'm just going to make this super-interesting thread. 1) Muqtada Sadr: "the near future of Iraq is dark" : http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/the-near-future-of-iraq-is-dark-warning-from-muqtada-alsadr--the-shia-cleric-whose-word-is-law-to-millions-of-his-countrymen-8970909.html 2) Eighteen bodies found in Iraq killed execution-style: http://rt.com/news/iraq-bodies-execution-violence-482/ 3) Over 120 Killed in Northern Yemen in fighting between Shi`a Houthis and Salafi parasites: http://www.annahar.com/article/88180-%D9%85%D9%82%D8%AA%D9%84-%D8%A3%D9%83%D8%AB%D8%B1-%D9%85%D9%86-120-%D8%B4%D8%AE%D8%B5%D8%A7-%D8%AC%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D8%AA%D8%A7%D9%84-%D9%81%D9%8A-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%8A%D9%85%D9%86 4) Iran and the US made the deal as you all (should) know. I won't post an article because meh. But I didn't like the deal mostly because although Western media says that Iran won the deal because they didn't lose anything, I believe Iran lost the deal because the sanctions relief they are getting is from their own frozen assets. So basically Iran gets its rightful money back in exchange for going through with the tough deal. And many sanctions are still in place, while reversible sanctions will be removed later on. I don't like it. There was also an earthquake that killed 8 people a couple of days ago in Bushehr. 5) Jabal Mohsen and Baab al-Tabbaaneh have been going at it again. After Salafis injured 8 of the workers from the JH side, JH kills 6-7 of the Saudi stooges in Baab al-Tabbaaneh. This seems to have erupted after JH raised a pro-Syrian flag, which caused BT to raise a pro-terrorist flag. More people died today I don't know from which side: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5iSUa8sg-U5LMvCIPEFRkxjJ2vbAQ?docId=4e22632a-5752-4075-86d3-474868fba89b Notes: I wanted to include more news but there is so much I forgot about some of them. All of the 18 bodies executed were Sunni, killed by men wearing army uniforms. Many of the bodies were supposedly Sahwa militia fighters (may Allah [azwj] have mercy on them), some were women. Another bombing occurred today with 10 more Sunnis dying after AQ did a suicide bombing. I really hope the Sahwa doesn't dismantle and in a worse case, head back to AQ (which AQ has said is the only way for them to have successfully repented for being supported by the US). The 120 killed is most likely understated, as there are reports 120 Salafis were killed alone while the casualties for the Houthis is unknown. Thanks for reading. As Imam Ali (as) has said in NB that any Muslim that does not keep knowledge of Muslim affairs is not one of us (or something along those line). (wasalam)
  24. Actually there are quite a few centres in Mississauga, but I don't think any of them are English speaking (huge Desi population there). I know of the Razavi Islamic Centre in Brampton, but I haven't been there yet and I have come to know that they rent out a church and have Muharram there, while they pray Jumu`a at a Leb/Arab centre. I advised (the OP) Mississauga because Hamilton and Brampton only have English speaking centres and I don't know the OP's background and if he'd prefer to be closer to Toronto than not. But now I have also found out that there is a growing Shi`a community in the Niagara region and expenses there are much cheaper than the GTA. Once I finish uni I may consider moving there.
