Shia VS Sunni on work for Unity among Muslims
Aabiss_Shakari posted a topic in Shia/Sunni Dialogue(salam) Unfortunately, Sunni side is not much open for Shia muslims. So called hardliner Sunnis call Shias Kafir/Majoosi/Sabai/Jews etc. Even in mainstream Sunnis we do not see much struggle from Sunni side for unity among Ummah (Shia-Sunni Unity). Often we being Shias face an unreasonable demand from Sunni side for unity among Ummah (Shia-Sunni Unity) that "Shias should convert to Sunni for unity". This is like a Wahabi saying to a Brailvi convert to Wahabism if you want unity. One has to accept others with their faith/views for unity. One can not thrust upon his/her views to others. On the other hand major Shia scholars always tried and preached for Shia-Sunni unity. Because this is the only way to defeat imperialists/zionists in the world. There are many Shias who are working against Shia-Sunni unity but fortunately, they did not get good recognition from Shia community.
I was wondering, for what bone the two mad dogs of Middle East (Saudi and MB) have locked their teeth on? I found this. Enjoy! Egypt becomes battleground for Arab world By Monte Palmer The Saudi monarchy has declared war on the Muslim Brotherhood, an immensely popular Sunni Islamic movement with branches and businesses throughout the world. Not only has the monarchy labeled the Brotherhood a terrorist organization, but a photo chart of the major terrorist groups offered by the Saudi press gives the Brotherhood top billing. Not even al-Qaeda outshines the Brotherhood in the eyes of the Saudi regime. Perhaps the Saudi monarchy had little choice in the matter. The Muslim Brotherhood swept to power in Egypt and Tunisia following the 2011 Arab Spring revolutions, and the Saudi monarchy openly worried that its kingdom would be next. Such is the price of being rich, weak, and unwilling to test the support of the masses in elections or a free press. The Saudi monarchy's chosen battlefield for its war on the Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt. It is difficult to argue with its choice. The Brotherhood was founded in Egypt, its Supreme Guides have all been Egyptian, and Egypt is the center of the Brotherhood's global operations. Branches of the Brotherhood are guided by General Secretaries from their respective regions, but key policy decisions flow from Egypt. The Saudis knew that attempts to destroy Brotherhood branches in the region would be futile as long as the Brotherhood leadership ruled from Egypt. Attacking Brotherhood branches would threaten the stability of Jordan, Kuwait and other Saudi allies with deeply entrenched Brotherhood movements. To crush the Brotherhood in Egypt, by contrast, would be to sever its head and soul. The battle would also transpire far from the Gulf and leave the Saudi monarchy, the self-proclaimed protector of Islam without blood on its hands. In fact, they could avoid fighting altogether by outsourcing the job to the Egyptian generals. It wasn't merely the popularity of the Brotherhood that alarmed the Saudi monarchy, but also the policies that the Brotherhood pursued upon being elected into office. The Brotherhood, or so it seemed to the monarchy, was intent on using the Egyptian government as a pulpit for spreading its seductive vision of pragmatic progressive Islam throughout the Arab world. This posed a direct threat to both the Saudi monarchy and to the extremist Wahhabi vision of Islamic purity upon which its claim to religious legitimacy rests. The security of the monarchy demanded Wahhabi dominance of the Sunni Islamic world. The more the seductive moderation and pragmatism of the Brotherhood spread, the weaker the Saudis would become. Particularly dangerous to Saudi control of the Sunni Islamic world were the Brotherhood's efforts to convert Al-Azhar, the oldest Islamic university in the world, to the Brotherhood's pragmatic and progressive vision of Islam. The Saudis controlled Mecca and Medina, the two holiest shrines in Islam, but the Brotherhood was on the verge of controlling Al-Azhar, the reigning authority on Sunni Islamic theology in the Muslim world. Meanwhile, Qatar, the main Saudi competitor for control of the Gulf and patron of the Brotherhood, seemed intent on using the Brotherhood's control of Egypt to break Saudi Arabia's domination of the Gulf. The ploy must have been effective, for an Egyptian opposition press financed by the Saudis screamed that Qatar had taken over Al-Azhar. Qatari efforts to bolster the Brotherhood's control of Al-Azhar were matched by Qatari efforts to strengthen Brotherhood branches in the Gulf and neighboring countries. Even today, the Saudis blame Qatar for supporting seductive Brotherhood doctrine in the mosques of the kingdom. Perhaps responding to Turkish influence, the Brotherhood pursued a remarkably democratic strategy in Egypt during its lone year in office. The press was free if irresponsible, demonstrations un-fettered, and all political groups, including the jihadists and extreme leftists, were allowed to establish political parties. Far worse, the Brotherhood threw down the gauntlet to the Saudis by calling for freedom and democracy throughout the region. Clearly, democracy had become the weapon of the Brotherhood for conquering the Arab world, and there was no weapon that the Saudis feared more. One fair election, if Egypt and Tunisia were any guide, and the Saudi monarchy would become a footnote in history. Brotherhood branches in Kuwait and Jordan picked up the call, throwing the two faux democracies into a state of confusion. The US and the EU, by contrast, applauded this rare breath of freedom in Egypt and, with Turkish encouragement, aspired to wean the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt toward greater moderation. Whatever the case, the Brotherhood's pragmatism offered the West an alternative to a Saudi Wahhabi doctrine condemned by Washington for breeding extremism and terror. The US and EU were also realizing that Islam was so deeply embedded in the Arab psyche that there could not be a stable government in the Arab world without Islamic representation, a topic treated at length in my book The Arab Psyche and American Frustrations. Like it or not, Brotherhood doctrine inclining toward the moderation of Turkish Lite was their best option. Not only had the Brotherhood placed the Saudi monarchy's Islamic legitimacy at risk, but it was also on the verge of weakening the monarchy's ties with the United States, its major patron. A counter-revolution supported by Saudi Arabia toppled the Brotherhood regime in Egypt, but did little to calm the monarchy's fears. To the contrary, the Brotherhood's resistance to the military coup in Egypt displayed a passion and organizational capacity that has thrown the country into chaos and casts severe doubts on the ability of Egypt's revived Mubarak regime to stay the course. This is all the more the case because various jihadist groups hostile to the Brotherhood have joined the fray by assassinating officers and establishing mini-caliphates in the Sinai and elsewhere. It is unlikely that the Saudi regime could survive in the face of a parallel uprising by domestic supporters of the Brotherhood and Wahhabi jihadists returning from Syria and elsewhere. The Saudis claim that there are some 600 returnees from Syria. The Kuwaitis place the figure at 20,000. Whatever the number of Brotherhood supporters and jihadists in the kingdom, the king's warnings of sedition and terrorism have become commonplace as the monarchy's fears mount. Putting their money where their fear is, Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies have pumped billions of dollars into Egypt with the hope that Egypt's latest military dictator will be able to crush the Brotherhood in its home base. Billions more are promised. If the Egyptian military can crush the Brotherhood, everything in the Saudi plan should fall in place. Egypt will be firmly established as the centerpiece of a Saudi-Israeli-Egyptian alliance designed to return the Arab world to the era of tyrants that reigned before the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011. Along the way, Egyptian authorities will promote stability in the region by severing the Brotherhood's lifelines to Hamas and stamping out jihadist and Brotherhood sanctuaries in Yemen, Libya and other areas within reach of Egypt's Saudi financed army. Democratic aspirations in the region will fade without inspiration from Egypt, and Saudi Wahhabi doctrine will find its way into Al-Azhar. With the Muslim Brotherhood gone, the US and the EU will return to their traditional role of supporting tyrants and the Saudi monarchy will have returned the Middle East to the era of peaceful oppression. The question is can Saudi money convert a poverty-stricken dictatorship teetering between chaos and civil war into the foundation of its war against the Muslim Brotherhood? If so, Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies should be able to buy the entire region. Thus far, all the Saudi monarchy has bought is civil war and chaos in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and Pakistan. Egypt is following suit. Even Field Marshal Sisi, Egypt's latest pharaoh, yet uncrowned, warns that things will get worse before they get better, much worse. The only optimist to be found is Sisi's latest hand-picked prime minister. A close friend of Hosni Mubarak, he oozes confidence that the Egyptian masses will put their shoulders to the wheel and sacrifice all for the good of the country. I doubt if the Saudi monarchy is quite do deluded. But, then, the Saudis may prefer chaos and civil war to Brotherhood rule in Egypt.

Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group, says Saudi Arabia Statement on Saudi TV also lists Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) as terrorist organisations Saudi Arabia has formally designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group in an official report on Saudi television. Citing a statement by the interior ministry, the report added that the Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) – whose fighters are battling the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad – were also classed as terror organisations. The move on Friday appeared to enforce last month's royal decree in which Riyadh said it would jail any citizen guilty of fighting in conflicts overseas for up to 20 years. The authorities want to deter Saudis from joining rebels in Syria, fearing they could pose a security risk when they return. Riyadh says the Brotherhood – whose Sunni doctrines challenge the Saudi principle of dynastic rule – has tried to build support inside the kingdom since the Arab spring uprisings across the Middle East and north Africa. In Egypt, the Brotherhood, which won every election following the toppling of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, has been driven underground since the army deposed President Mohamed Morsi – a longtime member of the group, which also endured repression under the Mubarak regime. The army-backed government in Cairo designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist organisation in December after accusing the group of carrying out a suicide bombing at a police station that killed 16 people. The Brotherhood condemned that attack and denies using violence. Saudi Arabia's Islamic religious authorities have previously spoken out against Saudi fighters going to Syria. The interior ministry estimates that around 1,200 Saudis have gone there nonetheless. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/07/muslim-brotherhood-declared-terrorist-saudi-arabia

Muslim Brotherhood In Bangladesh Punished
Noah- posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsMuslim Brotherhood in Bangladesh faces justice! The "murderers and rapists of millions" from Jamaate Islami will be hanged! Hopefully Bangladesh will punish Muslim-Brotherhood affiliated groups with an iron fist. There are close to six million Shias in Bangladesh who will be in great danger if these anti-Shia Takfiri groups take power in the country. Just like Egypt and Syria they will ban Shias from practicing their own religion in their own mosques and houses and will declare Shias as enemies and will bow down to the ZioSalafis. _______________________________ Bangladesh deaths rise as Jamaat protest strike begins At least 16 people have died in clashes in Bangladesh at the start of a strike called over a death sentence given to an Islamist party leader. Delwar Hossain Sayeedi, of Jamaat-e-Islami, was sentenced on charges including murder, rape and torture during the war of independence in 1971. Thursday's sentence sparked riots that have left about 60 people dead. The Islamists say the tribunal is politically motivated, something the Bangladesh government denies. Jamaat-e-Islami called a two-day strike across the country, beginning on Sunday, in protest at the court ruling. Troops were called in in the northern district of Bogra, where police said thousands of Jamaat activists armed with sticks and home-made bombs attacked police outposts early on Sunday. The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan in the southern city of Chittagong says there has been no let up in the violence since the death sentence was issued. Police have fought pitched battles with supporters of the Islamist party in many parts of the country. The Bangladeshi government rejected the criticism, saying violence against civilians and police officers would not be tolerated. One of the city's residents, Jahangir Alam, told the BBC he had seen a bus burning on the street. "The police were trying to control the situation, but they were having stones and other objects throw at them," he said. "People in the street are very, very afraid of Jamaat-e-Islam. I am scared. Evening time is the worst; from 7pm to 9pm it is very dangerous in the street." Our correspondent says the intensity of the backlash against the sentences has surprised many in Bangladesh, and security forces are struggling to bring the situation under control as it is difficult to predict which districts the violence will spread to. The streets of the capital remain largely calm as the strike takes effect, although roads are empty and businesses closed in many parts of the country, with people are staying indoors for fear of more violence, he says. The special war crimes tribunal is trying those accused of collaborating with Pakistani forces and committing atrocities during the country's independence war in 1971. Earlier this month, another Jamaat leader, Abdul Kader Mullah, was sentenced to life for crimes against humanity. In January, former party leader Abul Kalam Azad was found guilty in absentia of eight charges of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death.

Egypt & Israel To Co-operate, Mursi-msg To Perez
Noah- posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsAre Sunnis of Egypt more loyal to Islam, to Egypt or to Israel? It has been 6 decades that Egyptians under the pretext of secularism, marxism, western puppetism, and NOW under the so called Islamism are serving the state of Israel. They serve the Zionists in the expense of their own country's interests. One should ask the Sunnis of Egypt, the flag bearer of Sunni fiqh and scholarly center, the birth place of Al-Azhar, if they are more loyal to their religion, if they are more loyal to their country or to the state of Zionists? Aljazeera Reports: Egypt and Israel 'co-operate' in Sinai Army announces coordination in security sweep that began last month after 16 soldiers were killed in Sinai. Egypt and Israel are coordinating on Cairo's biggest security sweep in decades against fighters in Sinai, an army spokesperson said in the first clear statement on communication between the neighbours. Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Mohamed Ali told a news conference in Cairo on Saturday that 32 "criminal elements" were killed and 38 suspects arrested, including non-Egyptians, during the operation which began on August 7. "Egypt is coordinating with the Israeli side over the presence of Egyptian armed forces in Sinai. They know this," he said. "The deployment of the armed forces on all the territory of Sinai is not a violation of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel." An Israeli diplomatic source, who asked not to be identified, confirmed Ali's comments and told the AP news agency there was a "fluid dialogue between Israel and Egypt". "The operation will continue until its goals have been achieved ... These are not just military goals but also developmental goals for the Sinai," Ali said. The sweep began after fighters killed 16 border guards on August 5 in the worst attack since Egypt's 1973 war with Israel. Ali said the operation "will continue until its goals have been achieved ... These are not just military goals but also developmental goals for Sinai". Bedouin tribes in the area have long complained of neglect by the central government. Hundreds of troops with tanks, armoured vehicles and helicopters were sent to Sinai in a joint operation with police to raid hideouts, arrest suspects and seize weapons. The Egyptian military is replacing some of its heavy tanks in Sinai with light armoured vehicles, security sources said this week. Ali rejected the idea Egypt was pulling out its heavy equipment in response to pressure from Israel. He said the operation was entering a new phase that required different equipment. ------------------ Mursi's letter to Israeli president, which later after it was exposed, Mursi's office tried to cover up and denied the letter was sent.
