The sad thing is that there are good Arabic materials abut Iraq but there is hardly any in English. What is the role of Iraqis in West to help their brothers in countering the media blackout regarding the conflict?

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) On Wednesday, the elements of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant flogged a young man on charges of “harassment of a girl” inside ta market north of Mosul.

An eyewitness told IraqiNews.com that the militants of ISIL carried out, yesterday evening, a sentence of flogging of a young man accused of harassment of a girl inside a popular market in Al-Muthanna, north of Mosul.”

The eyewitness added that “one of the elements of ISIL announced the sentencing and punishment by flogging to a gathering of people by the market while another element in ISIL carried out the flogging on the young man – a total of 30 lashes.”

On July 13, 2014, the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ordered the formation of committees in the mosques of Mosul to flog anyone following the final match of the World Cup under the pretext that it is a “fun act of worship.”

I think Ammar Nakshawani's recent lecture is highly relevant to the situation in Iraq because he compares the khawaarij of Amir al-Mu'mineen's time to the ISIS of today. (So I'll post this here instead of another thread.)

 

 

And some Sunni ahadith about the khawaarij (mentioned in the lecture): http://www.aljamaat.org/islam/articles/a35.htm

One of the participants in Jordan conference "Marginalized Sunnis". Poor he, Ahmad Al-Dabash. Known serial killer of Shia. Brutal  man who killed some of his friends and relatives as well due to minor differences. Homosexual and regular bars customer. He was arrested then he was released due to some political deal.

Why was he not executed? Simply because the President Jalal Talbani sees capital punishment as immorality.

Baghdad (Forat) –The Supreme Religious Authority (Sayed al-Sistani)  praised the parliament success in nominating the Speaker and the President.

The representative of the Religious Authority, Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalayi, said in Friday Prayer Ceremony "This success which comes in a short and accepted period is an important step." /End/

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) The Imam of Arahma mosque in Mosul, Sheikh Riad Wasif Ghurairy, said that the terrorist gangs from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant flogged 23 young men who lead demonstrators who criticized the bombing of the shrine of the Prophet Yunus which IraqiNews.com reported yesterday: URGENT: ISIL destroys Mosque of Biblical Jonah, Prophet Yunus

Ghurairy said in an interview with IraqiNews.com that “after the crime of exploding the shrine of Prophet Yunus ISIL’s popularity has fallen dramatically and a big demonstration formed after Friday prayers criticizing this action, but the gangs ISIL arrested its leadership and flogged everyone of them a hundred lashes.”

Ghurairy added that “the terrorist gangs of ISIL carried out a strange procedure after Friday prayers. They searched residential buildings in the neighborhood of the Yonus shrine under the pretext that they were looking for government informants who are leaking information and images of ISIL’s crimes.”

Yesterday, the Mosque of Prophet Yunus, Biblical Jonah, was completely destroyed by terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Also, the organization of ISIL had destroyed a number of shrines under the pretext that they represented signs of polytheism according to their extreme interpretation of Sharia Law.

ISIL has been rampaging through Iraq, destroying world-famous antiquities and holy sites of Shia Muslims, Sufi Muslims, Christians, Yazidis and any other group they oppose as reported extensively by IraqiNews.com:

It is really questionable to why Iraqi gov. is not using extreme airpower? And why Iran is not helping it in this regard? What is needed at this point to level them and their tribal allies to the ground with heavy airpower... And organize surprise-ambushes, trap & target....

Iraqis might as well surrender and give up the whole country to isis. Where are the millions of shias? Imagine if shias in eastern saudi arabia took up arms, they would be massacred and the place would be levelled to the ground by the authorities. Why are iraqi leaders so incompetent?

You can't just "help" a country that hasn't asked for it. That would be an open ticket for everyone to "help" whomever they please. Not a single marja or gov.official has even come close to hinting that they want help.

Salam,

 

ISIS have have received combat training and have battle experience. Sending in a volunteer army to fight them would be catastrophe. I think what's happening now is that currently they are not using the full amount of volunteers; they are being trained. Once they are ready then the momentum of the battle will change. There is a reason why ISIS was a better army than FSA, besides the ruthleessness. They were trained better.

Iran is probably helping covertly, but remember that the Iraqi government came at the helm of the imperialists - so they are weak and dare not take up a real fight against the creation of the empire. Not until the Iraqi people - the vast majority of the Shi'a and Christians and Sunnis rise and demand a revolutionary change that break ties with empire, will Iraq be free to take on these takfiiris with the aid of the Islamic Republic, and help establish a true multi-ethnic/religious Islamic Republic in Iraq. Not this fakery going on right now.

Well first off you got the Kurds enjoying the situation because they can claim the land that ISIS are invading, Kurds from Europe have even said in my local newspaper they are going to Iraq "To battle ISIS and the Iraqi Government troops" meaning that if ISIS is defeated Kurds will start killing Iraqi troops.

 

Secondly, political idiocity (especially in Shia politicians) you got those weak politicians and soldiers that for some reason show mercy to merciless savages.

 

Third reason is if the government leveled the ISIS pest with and their areas with the ground the whole UN will suddenly know justice and want to be righteous and will object while they ignore Palestinean civillians that are the main target for missiles.

 

And the last reason being ISIS (may Allah annihilate them) killed many air force students which leads us back to idiocity-striken Shia politicians who didn't object having the majority of air force universities and important military assets scattered all over Sunni populated Iraq instead of Shia populated Iraq which is much more prosperous and has much more resources.

 

Our Shia politicians can turn Iraq into the richest, most prosperous and beautiful country but they tolerate bull[Edited Out] far more than they should.

Why isn't main stream media not reporting on hazrat yunus shrine being blown up?im talking about on actual news not websites?? Also they blew Umar khatrab grandsons shrine and the Sunnis have had enough of their brutality... Has anyone noticed how it's gone silent in iraq and Syria now everyone is concentrating on gaza? I know we should speak up about oppression everywhere and my heart goes out to Palestinians... But we are truly living in the age of deception... Palestinians killed roughly 900 there were 2400 (roughly) shia deaths in Iraq last month... What are these so caked drone surveillance doing iraq or the 600 advisors?? Why don't the Iraqis wake up they are 70% population getting beat by 15% Sunnis is humiliating!!! Asking USA for airstrikes and getting ignored was very humiliating for Iraqis.... The difference between Assad and Maliki is political experience Assad family has been in politics 40 years they knw how to overcome difficulties where as Iraqis (say no more) iraq needs a shrewd politician leader... Politics is like a game of chess also keep the updates coming Shias round the world are concerned

Called drones * error above

You can blame it all on "conspiracies" but in truth Isis put fear in shia soldiers gave up their weapons and ran away.... Brother Noah keep your posts coming I've noticed you don't comment as much as before?

Poor effort by the Iraqis.

There is a reason they were the subjects of Saddam for so long.

Now they can't even defend the country properly against a few thugs, this has got to be the worst military effort in response to cities being taken I've ever seen in recent times.

 

As others have said, can you imagine militants taking control in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey and not being destroyed swiftly?

 

It seems no progress is being made, so you may as well give resources to the IS and let them consolidate, then close off the border and protect it.

It is not Maliki... He wants to go very hard and fight a war... But, the problems start within Iraq's structure, the tribal structure, disunity amongst Shias and not having a common goal. Yea, Maliki is to be blamed a little bit too for not being prepared for this day even after receiving thousands of warnings...and seeing clearly what were to come... especially giving in too much to the demands of Sunni tribes, and ignoring the fact that the Baathists will never rest until they are either destroyed and disabled or they take over Iraq or at least over Arab-Iraq. While on the other hand Sunni tribes, Baathists played everything very smart in a satanic way to play the government, the foreign supporters, and organize a network of Baathists + Takfiris to take control and overthrow to government forces.

 

But after all they can use the best advantage of the situation if they organize networks of military wings and play their cards right... not to give in to the terror calls of Sunni tribes... they will stop nowhere... they will make demands after demands.. today Maliki's removal, tomorrow the return of Baathists to take over the government... the so called Islamist rebels, ex-Baathists with their tirbal allies should be punished hard... and take them out of the picture!

Congratulations on you engagement...... Maliki made a big mistake by letting them Baathists go ayatollah Khomeini executed every single puppet of the former regime in their thousands..... people cried " what is he doing?"but he was thinking of the longer term... Iraqis need to better trained and fight for their country nobody will come to their rescue personally their should a fatwa ordered by ayatollah sistani/shirazi/najafi anyone who bears arms against the Iraqi state... Killing innocent people spreading fitna, fasad, fear and intimidation in the population and anyone associated with Isis should executed on the spot (credible evidence needed tho) no more war prisoners the takfiris are taking advantage of our patience when we show we mean business they'll go back in their gutter holes!!! Shia/Sunni/Kurds unite and just execute them... Stop beating round the bush

After observing current Iraq, now i really understand the genius move by Ayotullah Khomeini (ra). Iraq should understand that Bathis and ISIS are viruses, and you need to get rid of it by killing it.

Genius move? You have to give people a second chance.

Ignore the first part, it's BBC propaganda against Iran. Listen to the speech of Sayyed al-Shiraazi (h.a). You will know what the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) was.

Salaam brother but when that quote come saying ayatollah khamenei criminal and ayatollah blood thirsty devil I stopped listening! Ayatollah shirazi has his own opinion but he wasn't the leader of revolution as for giving second chances please we can exactly see what's happening in iraq when former generals and Baathist were giving second chances they are killing Shias by the thousands bad policy or not by Maliki.... No major islamic school of thought caters for this barbaric crimes against the Muslims.... Maybe brother you need a second chance in your thinking.... Thousands of shia Muslims died during the revolution over 6000 scientists were killed by Mossad those who were with the regime or stayed silent are just as culpable in their crimes hence why we raise our voices for palestines if we don't we are just as guilty as Israelis but how can we really knw what happened during or after the revolution I trust ayatollah khomeneis ra judgement... Today the same revolutionary ideas the same Iran is sitting with the world powers on the same table ( even after threats, war Iran-Iraq, sanctions,arm embargo, cannot purchase wheat, rice or medicines) the same Iran whether we agree or not with their policies you have to admire them for standing up and not being humiliated like the rest if Arabs or Muslim countries.... So brother think again contemplate and write something appropriate without cursing or slandering any scholars Edited by syed yusuf abbas

His 5 orders are reasonable if you want to protect the revolution that most people accept it. This second chance is nothing but an bad move.

This is sad. You could have skipped the part which attacked Khamenei, but you decided to make a big deal out of it.

Sayyed Shiraazi sent a letter to Khumaynee as a suggestion, this has nothing to do with being a leader. If only you listened to the video, you would know that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) gave a second chce to the MUSHRIKEEN after taking over Mecca al-Mukaramah. (same people who were fighting HIM)

And finally I never cursed or slandered anybody; I simply posted a video.

Iraqi Ba'this should not be all collectively executed just because they adhere to Ba'thism and support Saddam, and I believe that such position has no place in Islamic teachings. Executions should only be done to those who have been proven to be guilty of a specific crime that they committed, or those who take up arms against the Iraqi army, but not generally to the average person who adheres to Ba'athi ideology, yet are free of committing any crime.

Moreover, even if such judgment was enforced by the Iraqi government, it would mean that almost all the people of Anbar are to be killed, because in reality, the majority of Sunnis in Al-Anbar are either Ba'thi or hold on to Ba'thism beliefs. Selectively killing them just because of their label would ignite a bigger sectarian fire that would further drown the country to more chaos and blood.

It's also worth to mention, that some of them were forced to become Baa'this in order to be qualified to have full rights during the times of Saddam, and today, they can be identified that they were registered Ba'this however in reality, they are innocent of Saddam and reject the ideology entirely. Those people(and I'm talking thousands here, Shi'as included) would be innocent if executed.

Ok fair point maybe not every Baathist but everyone of them included in causing fear fitna, fasad, taking up arms against the state and killing people mercilessly they will still mount to a in high thousands
