And when Saul went forth with the soldiers, he said, "Indeed, Allah will be testing you with a river. So whoever drinks from it is not of me, and whoever does not taste it is indeed of me, excepting one who takes [from it] in the hollow of his hand." But they drank from it, except a [very] few of them. Then when he had crossed it along with those who believed with him, they said, "There is no power for us today against Goliath and his soldiers." But those who were certain that they would meet Allah said, "How many a small company has overcome a large company by permission of Allah . And Allah is with the patient."
And when they went forth to [face] Goliath and his soldiers, they said, "Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people."

 

Meanwhile, Sunni militants attacked the army bases outside the town of Saqlawiyah, just north of the militant-seized city of Fallujah, some 50 km west of Baghdad, and fought fierce clashes during the day, a provincial police source said without giving details about casualties.

 

 

Alhamdulliah. Baghdad is still standing.

I can't imagine that these rats are actually TRYING to take Baghdad. They shouldn't even have the chance to do that.. How many are they? 2000? 5000? Versus 3+ millions?!

Thurs,19June14:

 

al-Alam is reporting: Advance to Mosul being prepared by Iraqi Army; US F-18 flying surveillance missions; and the FSA in Syria is to swear allegiance to ISIS.

 

 

@10:19EDT  more from media-land:

 

Al-Jazeera's reports are behind the other sites

 

DeautscheWelle dw.de is mostly soccer and "analysis" on Iraq

 

PressTV:  reports that ISIS/ISIL wants 'jihad-ul-nikka" with the women in Mosul  :sick:  <---the women's reaction, ed.

 

Hurriyat Daily (Turkey) 1) criticizes the Turkish gov't for restricting reporting on the 80 Turkish hostages; 2) quotes AFP that Sec Kerry said the US will share information with Iran 'but will not cooperate'.

 

Finally, :lol:  Daily Star. Lebanon, in the article, "Tripoli gathering: Iraq a "revolution of oppressed' ",19Jun14, reports that the "National Islamic Gathering" [?] in Lebanon condemns Tehran for its oppressive policies in Iraq.   :shifty: :wacko: :donno:

Salams,

 

If you guys might recall, during the 2006 war, intially there were conflicting reports. Infact, initially Israel made massive gain, until t slowly but surely the resistance caught up and drove them out and gave them a loss  that they still regret. It's good to be update with the findings, but we need to have firm belief (myself included), that provided people are sincerely fighting for the sake of Allah (SWT) the final victory will be the with believers.

Barack Obama announced on Thursday that a contingent up to 300 “military advisers” will be sent to help Iraq's beleaguered army repel the advance of Sunni insurgents, but insisted the US would not be dragged into another bloody war in the country.

 

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/19/obama-100-special-forces-iraq

 

 

Useless. They're just being sent to spy on whatever the Iranians are doing.

 

Don't know why Maliki agreed to this, unless the Americans threatened him with assassination.

I heard several months ago that Maliki would be assassinated but not sure about this information, especially in case if he won't take us orders.

BREAKING NEWS

 

Sayyed Sistani calls all Iraqis to fight against ISIS before "everyone regret it tomorrow"

"our call is not sectarian in nature" he added " we are calling to fight against ISIS specifically"

 

Can you put this on more details brother? Does this mean also that all iraqis around the world or just the iraqis living in Iraq? I got one thing in my mind today and that was the let's suppose that Iraq would be split into three different countries, one for shia, one for sunni and one for kurds. Even in that case there would be a war against shias after that split. This would be the dream of usa and israel because once that division is done they could use this sunni country to wage war against all shia countries. So there's not a chance that it would be splitted and if in any case would be splitted that I don't believe then we have made a huge mistake.

Sayyed Sistani fatwa excluded :Those abroad, the students and those who work in gov. The fatwa has also restricted the volunteers to the Iraqi army only meaning that joining the political parties militia will not fulfill the obligation.

Thank you brother, but isn't that original fatwa that Sayed Sistani may Allah (S.W.T) bless him commenced and it was detailed to such like you described because I read the described version few days ago.

I must be confused. I check Sistani's website and find nothing.

 

But find all kinds of comments and corrections to a 'fatwa' that Sistani is supposed to have expressed in western news media. Now this is copied by gulfnews and who knows who will copy it next.

I don't like it was really a fatwa. It was rather a call for self defence, and people to rise up against ISIS.

ISIS controls Qa'im, boarder crossing with Syria completely. Fierce fights happened between ISIS and Iraqi Army for three days. Tens of losses from both sides.

There is almost no presence to the Iraqi Army in Anbar desert, the west southern part of Iraq bordering Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

The other side of the crossing is controlled by the FSA

The fact that Sistani is a religious leader for only a certain segment of the Iraqi population makes it sectarian. Sistani carries virtually no authority among Sunni muslims. It would have been best for Sistani not to give a fatwa at all. Because of his very position as an authority on Shia Islam, this fatwa by Sistani, regardless of his intentions/meaning, would be interpreted as being a call for Shias to form militias. Shia militias have formed all over Baghdad and the Shia provinces in Iraq as a result of Sistani's fatwa.

*brace for sarcasm*

Oh dear now I realize, imagine how reckless he was by raising awareness and mobilising an army to fight not only a national threat but a threat to islam as a whole instead of sitting in his office leaving 90% of all Iraqis leaderless, clueless hiding in their homes.

He is muslim, leave it at that. He set an example on how muslims should react to such a national and religious threat. The most obvious reason that this is not sectarianism is that Sunni scholars heeded Sistani's fatwa.

Where is this Iraqi army? What good is protecting a few shrines mainly located in south iraq when the whole north is slowly being taken over...the more areas ISIS controls on the borders of Iraq and Saudi/Jordan the more gateways are going to be open for more ISIS members to enter Iraq. We have planes, tanks, better artillery, and all around better technology, yet we are losing to these guys. How extremely pitiful.

This^

 

Look, this is a war of survival for Iraq. This is not something where you take your time and train all the volunteer milita for months so they can get good etc....They need to be in there NOW!

 

Iranians weren't sitting around practicing when Saddam was taking their territory, they went in droves to fight. I won't bother stating what would have happend if they were slow in response because everyone knows. This is urgent.

Its amazing to see the terrorist sympathizers like you expect so much from people like Ayatollah Sistani and yet so little from your own terrorist religious figures.
