GLOBAL VISION 2000 VIRTUAL EXPO GATHERS ALL AGENTS FOR CHANGE

http://globalvision2000.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=484&pid=2052#pid2 052


Global Vision 2000 is pleased to notify all our members that as part of our new strategy to Move Towards the Universal Paradigm Shift and Building the Century of the 5 Cs we are starting to move to our EZ XPO VIRTUAL EXPO. The need for this forum will no longer be required similar to the transition from moving away in transportation from the usage of horses to the car.

ALL registered forum members are requested to sign up as ATTENDEES at the Global Vision 2000 IBC network. You will be able to do so freely. The url link is the gateway and all that is required is online registration with your name, email and password.

https://ezxpo.net/islamicbusinesschannel/attendee_register


What this means is a massive upgrade into the Virtual Reality and Artificial Reality world. This offers features such as realtime live engagement, a networking lounge and live chat facilities. This is in addition to the digital content on the forum. Thereafter we will soon announce the activation of our IBC AUDITORIUM to broadcast videos.

Welcome to the new world of IBC Virtual Expo and we look forward to meeting you as we are gathering our supporters to join us on the journey on the road to Moving towards the Universal Paradigm Shift. We have the Universal Vision, Message and Direction and all we need is for you to catch up and join us. The time to move onwards and upwards has come or be left behind.


Global Vision 2000 the UK based independent Islamic thinktank and business consultancy has evolved and after 16 years of research, development and advocacy is launching our new website with the birth and inauguration of the Islamic Business Channel – IBC. We are pleased that this was done on ISRA MIRAJ the Night of Ascension which took place on Monday April 24 2017/Rajab 27 1438.

The purpose of the IBC is to accelerate all businesses, social enterprises and agencies to make the transition to and building of a fairer and just world. This is what we mean by our slogan referring to Moving towards the universal paradigm shift. This can only happen by building a global alliance and coalition with a collaborative ecosystem of networks working in a spirit of partnership and transformation for the Common Good. The IBC is a digital platform to build the Century of the 5 Cs- Consciousness, Connections, Communications and Communities of Collaboration.

The IBC is committed to working with all stakeholders who seek not only a sustainable world but one which is fair and just for all. Only after releasing human potential can humans realise becoming vicegerents. The IBC is a digital platform which will work with Islamic tv channels and others to promote our community for all businesses and entities committed to universal values of economic justice and fairness. The IBC is committed to building a debt free and usury free world in which the global commons is shared equitably.

Our vision is inspired by the vision of the Global Islamic community of 1.8 billions rising as :-

“The Middle Nation to uphold good and stop evil”.


The IBC is committed to working for a world in which Islam and Muslims are living, working and trading as equal partners with others in our global village. At a time of the rising spectrum of terrorism and extremism of all types in all nations we need solutions that eradicate root causes which are not being addressed. It is clear that debt, poverty, crime and violence go hand in hand and if our times need any war it has to be to eradicate these.


Imam Ali said: “We withstood the weight of the iron, the stone and the lash, but found the hardest thing to endure was the burden of debt.”

Jefferson said – “The modern theory for the perpetuation of debt, has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed it’s inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating”

The IBC believes that the current global financial and economic world is fundamentally flawed. The pyramidical system is designed to prosper the few, is fundamentally unstable and in which injustice is structurally endemic and subject to cycles of boom and bust followed by war. The bad news is other bubbles will burst and we are in the lull before the next global crash. We are living in an upside down world and there is an urgent need for a balanced moral political economy meeting the needs of people and planet. The Great Unwind of 2007-8 has morphed from a financial crisis into an economic crisis into a political crisis.

The good news proclaimed on the day of Isra Miraj is that the IBC is committed to offering knowledge, solutions and a digital platform for its community to solve problems ravaging humanity based on the universal Islamic values of ADL – compassionate socio-economic justice. It is time to join and support IBC and its community on this long journey.

UN DOCUMENTS SHOCKING CRIMES BY MYANMAR ARMY
Top Myanmar generals led brutal campaign against Rohingya involving "gravest crimes under international law"
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/08/r...44502.html

Myanmar's military carried out mass killings and gang rapes of Rohingya with "genocidal intent" and the commander-in-chief and five generals should be prosecuted, UN investigators said on Monday. It was the first time the United Nations explicitly called for Myanmar officials to face genocide charges over their campaign against the Rohingya, and is likely to deepen the Southeast Asian nation's isolation. The UN mission found Myanmar's armed forces had taken actions that "undoubtedly amount to the gravest crimes under international law", forcing more than 700,000 Rohingya to flee starting in late August 2017.


Speaking in Geneva on Monday, Marzuki Darusman, the mission's chairman, said his researchers amassed evidence based on 875 interviews with witnesses and victims, satellite imagery, and verified photos and videos. Marzuki said victim accounts were "amongst the most shocking human rights violations" he had come across and would "leave a mark on all of us for the rest of our lives".

WATCH:

He described Myanmar's military as having shown "flagrant disregard for lives" and displayed "extreme levels of brutality". "The Rohingya are in a continuing situation of severe systemic and institutionalised oppression from birth to death," Marzuki said. The UN does not apply the word "genocide" lightly. Its assessment suggests crimes against the Rohingya could meet the strict legal definition used in places such as Bosnia, Rwanda and Sudan's Darfur region.


'Burning entire villages'
The team cited a "conservative" estimate from aid group Reporters Without Borders that some 10,000 people had been killed in the violence, but outside investigators have had no access to the affected regions, making a precise accounting elusive, if not impossible. The UN report said military generals, including Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, must face investigation and prosecution for "genocidal intent" in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state, as well as crimes against humanity and other war crimes in the states of Kachin and Shan. The report singled out Myanmar's military, known as the Tatmadaw, but added that other Myanmar security agencies were also involved in abuses. "Military necessity would never justify killing indiscriminately, gang-raping women, assaulting children, and burning entire villages," the report said. "The Tatmadaw's tactics are consistently and grossly disproportionate to actual security threats, especially in Rakhine state but also in northern Myanmar."

In Rakhine state, there was evidence of extermination and deportation, the report added.
"The crimes in Rakhine state, and the manner in which they were perpetrated, are similar in nature, gravity and scope to those that have allowed genocidal intent to be established in other contexts," the UN mission concluded, adding there was "sufficient information" to prosecute the military's chain of command.


Christopher Sidoti, a member of the investigatory committee, urged the UN Security Council and General Assembly to act on the report's findings. "We are convinced the international community holds the key to dismantling the destructive veil of impunity in Myanmar," he said.


'This is extremely significant'

Mohammed Jamjoom, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Cox's Bazar "What we've heard in the report really
lines up with witness testimonies I've heard here. For most of the past year, when official bodies of governance spoke about the atrocities committed in Rakhine state, they called it ethnic cleansing. Now there's a very extensive UN fact-finding mission recommending that top tier military officials in Myanmar be prosecuted and investigated for genocide. When the members of the panel in Geneva laid out their investigation, they said that they conducted 875 interviews, they talked about the destructive veil of impunity in Myanmar and they said that until that is lifted, the cycle of violence in Myanmar will continue. They said there needs to be a mechanism by which these crimes can be prosecuted and the cycle of violence in Myanmar can be ended.

That's going to be very difficult, we don't know exactly where this goes. At some point, it will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council and then potentially to the UN Security Council.
But we must remember that Myanmar is not a signatory to the Rome Statute, so the International Criminal Court does not have jurisdiction."

Criticism of Aung San Suu Kyi
Investigators compiled a list of suspects, which included Min Aung Hlaing and other military commanders. The mission said a full list of suspects will be made available to any credible body pursuing accountability, adding that the case should be referred to the International Criminal Court, or an ad hoc criminal tribunal. Myanmar's civilian leadership also drew criticism for its failure to prevent the abuses. "The State Counsellor, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, has not used her de facto position as Head of Government, nor her moral authority, to stem or prevent the unfolding events in Rakhine State," the report said.


The Government and the Tatmadaw have fostered a climate in which hate speech thrives, human rights violations are legitimized, and incitement to discrimination and violence facilitated.


UN REPORT
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate has been criticised internationally for her failure to speak out against abuses in Rakhine State and has had several human rights awards rescinded for her stance.

The Rohingya: Silent Abuse
In August 2017, Myanmar's armed forces launched a campaign ostensibly against Rohingya armed groups in Rakhine state. Investigators documented mass killings, the destruction of Rohingya dwellings, and "large-scale" gang rape by Myanmar soldiers. The UN's report drew praise from the ground in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, where refugee camps have taken in hundreds of thousands of Rohingya from across the border. "We are happy for this. If these army people are punished the world will take note of it. They are killers. They must be punished," said Mohammed Hasan, 46, who lives in the Kutupalong refugee camp. "They killed thousands, we have seen that. They torched our homes, that's a fact. They raped our women, that's not false."


SUU KYI USES FIRST APPEARANCE SINCE UN DAMNING REPORT TO DISCUSS LITERATURE
https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/08/2...-UN-report

Myanmar’s embattled leader Aung San Suu Kyi has resorted to literature instead of addressing the critical humanitarian issues regarding her country’s persecuted Rohingya Muslim minority in her first public appearance a day after a damning report by the United Nations confirmed that “genocide” had occurred in the country under her watch. In her speech at the University of Yangon on Tuesday, Suu Kyi discussed poetry and literature instead of reviewing the scathing report compiled by a UN mission and published a day earlier, which concluded that Myanmar’s military had carried out a series of “shocking” rights violations against the Rohingya, including mass killings and gang rapes.

According to the damning report, the military had carried out "genocide" of the Rohingya in Rakhine state, the home province of majority of the Muslims, and was responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity in the states of Rakhine, Shan and Kachin. Myanmar generals directed murder, rape, and arson that sent 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing for their lives, but Aung San Suu Kyi reassures us that the generals she knows are "all rather sweet." Not to worry.

2:52 PM - Aug 21, 2018


In its final report released on Monday, the UN Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar said the country’s army, led by Commander-in-Chief Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing, had carried out the “gravest crimes” against the Rohingya with “genocidal intent.” The UN investigators called for an international probe and prosecution of Myanmar’s army chief and five other top military commanders for their crimes. However, the Myanmar leader, a former Nobel Peace Prize winner, chose instead to stay silent on all issues of politics and made no mention of the shocking report by the world body.

Aung San Suu Kyi should be arrested and brought before International War Crimes Tribunal...women and children burnt to death under her watch

10:08 PM - Aug 27, 2018


Last year, Myanmar’s armed forces, backed by Buddhist extremists, launched a state-sponsored crackdown against the Rohingya in Rakhine under the pretext of a number of attacks on military posts blamed on the minority group.


The crackdown, once described by the UN as the textbook example of "ethnic cleansing," forced some 700,000 Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh, where they are living in overcrowded refugee camps in dire humanitarian conditions.

The new report further lashed out at Myanmar’s de facto leader for failing to give a proper response to the military’s brutalities, which have drawn widespread criticism from the UN and leading international organizations, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

Myanmar and Bangladesh agreed in January to complete the voluntary repatriation of Rohingya refugees by 2020, followed up by an agreement with the UN last month. Experts and Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh say a recent deal falls short of guaranteeing the Muslims’ safe return to Myanmar.

VICTORY SPEECH

IMRAN PROMISES WIDE RANGING REFORMS : ALL POLICIES FOR THE PEOPLE
https://www.dawn.com/news/1423029

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday, in his first public address since his party grabbed a lead in the preliminary General Election results, shared his vision for the country and pledged to safeguard the interests of ordinary citizens.

Khan, in a speech made in Bani Gala that was broadcast via video link, claimed victory, saying that he was thankful to have finally been given the chance to implement the manifesto he had envisioned 22 years ago.

"Thanks to God, we won," he said. "We were successful and we were given a mandate," the 65-year-old cricketer-turned-politician said during a live broadcast, adding that there was "no politician victimisation" in the acrimonious contest.

Addressing outcry by opposition political parties that the elections had been rigged or manipulated, Khan promised to provide them the assistance required to investigate such allegations. In the same breath he dismissed such allegations, terming yesterday's polls "the fairest in Pakistan's history".

Watch the complete address here.

"If you think there has been rigging, we will assist you in the investigation if you have any doubts. We will stand by you. I feel that this election has been the fairest in Pakistan's history. If any party has any doubts, we will open up the results of those constituencies for investigation."

He commended the people of Balochistan who voted on election day, despite a suicide attack that left 31 people dead, and the armed forces who provided security for the polls.
Imran's promises

"I want to clarify why I entered politics. Politics could not have given me anything. I wanted Pakistan to become the country that my leader Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had dreamed of."

"I want to share the kind of Pakistan I envision ? the type of state that was established in Madina, where widows and the poor were taken care of," he explained. "Today our state is in shambles. [But] all our policies aim to help the less fortunate prosper," he said.

"Farmers are not paid for their hard work, 25 million children are out of school, our women continue to die in childbirth because we can't give them basic healthcare, we can't give the people clean drinking water. A country is not recognised by the lifestyle of the rich, but by the lifestyle of the poor. No country that has an island of rich people and a sea of poor people can prosper," he said.

Although he claimed to have "suffered the worst kind of personal attacks" that any political leader has had to sustain over the last three years, he said "this is all behind me now".

Imran's promises at a glance

All policies for ordinary citizens

Safeguard tax revenue

Decrease govt expenses

Strengthen institutions

Across-the-board accountability for all

Increase youth employment

Help farmers, business community

Spend money on development

Repurpose PM House

Address ties with China, Afghanistan, Iran, US, India

"I pledge to safeguard the nation's taxes. We will decrease all of our expenses," he promised.


"Our institutions will be stronger, everyone will be held accountable. First I will be subjected to accountability, then my ministers and so on. Today we are behind [other countries] because there is a separate system for those in power and a separate one for ordinary citizens," he said.

"We are facing governance and economic challenges. Our economy has never been so abysmal. It’s because institutions have not been doing their jobs," he explained.

"People are not investing in Pakistan. Another problem is unemployment, our youth does not have jobs. We will introduce a system that has never been implemented before ? a kind of governance system that has not been seen before in this country," he promised.

A country that has the highest number of people giving charity, but the lowest amount of tax revenue, he claimed.

"Our government will decide what we will do with PM House. I would be ashamed to live in such a large house. That house will be converted into an educational institution or something of the sort," he said.

"The point is, we have to improve our condition, we have to formulate policies with the business community to increase wealth," he said.

"We will improve tax culture. People will pay taxes because they will see that their taxes are being spent on them. We will help farmers, the business community and help the youth to find jobs and develop their skills. Our money will be spent on human development," he added.

Foreign policy challenges
"Another challenge is foreign policy. No other country needs peace like we do. We will strengthen our relations with China, they have given us a chance by investing in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and we also want to learn how to improve people's lives, drag them out of poverty. Will also learn how to deal with corruption," he said.

"Next is Afghanistan. They have suffered most in the ‘war on terror’, and before that in the Afghan jihad. Peace in Afghanistan means peace in Pakistan," he said, adding that he envisions open borders with Afghanistan reminiscent to those within the European Union.

He said he wished relations with the US to be mutually beneficial, not one sided. Additionally, he said he and his party wanted stronger ties with Iran.

"Saudi Arabia has stood by us in our toughest times. We would like to be a reconciliatory state and help them resolve their inner tensions," he said.

He added that he was very disappointed with how Indian media had, in the days leading up to the election, portrayed him as a "Bollywood villain".

"I am a person who arguably knows the most people in India because of my days in cricket. We can resolve the poverty crisis in South East Asia. The biggest problem is Kashmir, every international organisation has said that there are human rights violations taking place in Kashmir," he said.

"We want to improve our relations with India, if their leadership also wants it. This blame game that whatever goes wrong in Pakistan is because of India and vice versa brings us back to square one," he said.

"This is not how we will grow, and it is detrimental to the sub-continent," he said.

"If they take one step towards us, we will take two, but we at least need a start."

"I pledge to our people that I will introduce a system that is for the masses, all policies will be for the people and not for the elite," he vowed.

"I will live humbly," he promised. "So far we have seen that everyone who comes to power changes. That will not happen with me."

GLOBAL VISION 2000 SALUTES AND CELEBRATES THE SPIRIT OF THIS OCCASION BUT WHERE IS THE FORCE TO DEFEND GLOBAL ISLAM AND MUSLIMS ?


PAKISTAN WILL NEVER AGAIN FIGHT SOMEONE ELSE'S WAR
PM KHAN VOWS DURING DEFENCE DAY SPEECH
https://www.dawn.com/news/1431324/pakistan-will-never-again-fight-some one-elses-war-pm-khan-vows-during-defence-day-speech

A ceremony to commemorate Pakistan's 53rd Defence Day and pay tribute to the martyrs of the 1965 war was held at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi. Prime Minister Imran Khan accompanied by First Lady Bushra Imran was in attendance along with Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa and other civil and military leaders. Also in attendance were school children, family members of the martyrs and people from different walks of life, including parliamentarians, media representatives, celebrities and sportsmen.

A smartly outfitted group of soldiers put on an enthralling march performance to the tune of traditional songs played by the marching band of the armed forces. Following the performance, Gen Bajwa took the stage to deliver his address on the occasion, after which the chief guest, PM Imran Khan was invited to speak. Strong rule of law needed to prosper as a nation, says PM Khan



Addressing the ceremony as the chief guest, PM Khan mentioned that Pakistan Army was the "only institution (in the country) that works on the basis of merit". "We will bring this meritocracy to all fields in the country in order to help us prosper as a nation," the premier vowed. The prime minister also mentioned that all fields in the country including agriculture will prosper once we develop a strong rule of law in the country.


PM Khan took advantage of the occasion to clarify that there was no such thing as civil-military tension, "there is one common goal, that is to solve the problems of this nation". “This nation will rise when the poor man knows that his son is getting quality education on the state's expense and that education will open opportunities for his son to achieve success in life. That is when the common man will want to become part of this system and own it,” the prime minister said.



“For the past three weeks, I have been seeing presentations on all the problems that this country is facing, and I can tell you this that we will become a nation and rise again. We can overcome these problems once we strengthen the rule of law in this country," PM Khan said. Going back to the history of Islam, PM Khan said that we need to look at the way Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) brought together different tribes to form a nation. “We need to look back and see what Prophet (PBUH) did in order to bring those people together to form a nation so strong that they ruled the world for centuries."


'Sacrifices of valiant soldiers will not go unacknowledged'



"All of you gathered here today gives credence to the fact that we are all united in our efforts to defend Pakistan," said Gen Bajwa while addressing the ceremony. "September 6, 1965, is an important day in the history of our nation. It is the day when the armed forces, with the full support of the nation, defeated an evil adversary. Every Pakistani was the nation's soldier. We were all united to defend our country and played our respective roles. Our soldiers jumped into the fiery pits of warfare but did not let our nation be harmed," he said, adding that the bravery shown by our nation during the 65 war serves as an important lesson and an inspiration to our youth even today. "We have learned a lot from the wars of 65 and 71. We were able to further strengthen our defence forces in the wake of these wars. Despite difficult economic times, we were able to become an atomic power.

"Then began the period of non-traditional warfare. Over the past two decades, a wave of terrorism swept the world. The characteristics of war were forever changed. Unfortunately, Pakistan also found itself in the crosshairs of this new war. "Our armed forces and the entire nation have learned much during their service to Pakistan. Fear and terrorism were thrust upon us. Our homes, schools, places of worship, recreational sites and national institutions were attacked. "Efforts were made to weaken and divide us from within. But I salute all the citizens of Pakistan and the ones safeguarding our nation who fought remarkably in these difficult times and stood against such elements. "We have all successfully fought against this extremist narrative. In this war, more than 76,000 Pakistanis were martyred or injured. To remember these sacrifices we not only celebrate Defence Day but since 2014 also celebrate Martyr's Day.

"We have sacrificed a lot but our job is not done. The war is still ongoing. We have yet to reach the pinnacle of peace. We have to make Pakistan reach a level where no one can look at us with an evil intent," Gen Bajwa said in his stirring speech.



The army chief went on to say that for the country's stability and progress, democracy is of utmost importance. "Democracy cannot blossom without observing the democratic traditions in true spirit and without the strengthening of institutions," he maintained. "We have set on this path ten years ago," he said adding that: "Today we are more united and more resolute. This is a message that Pakistanis are not ones to fear any crisis and will soar to new heights soon." Prominent politicians including Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif, and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto were also present along with senior military leadership. The chiefs of Navy and Air Force also attended the ceremony along with several diplomats and ambassadors. In addition, sports personalities including cricketers Shahid Afridi and Zaheer Abbas along with Olympian Shahbaz Senior and squash champion Jahangir Khan were seen among those attending. Among those to host the event were Humayun Saeed, Maya Ali and Hareem Farooq. The ceremony began with a recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by the national anthem.

A short film showing the families of martyred soldiers remembering their sons left members of the audience in tears. Singer Sahir Ali Bagga opened the ceremony with a patriotic song, as a video paying tribute to the armed forces played in the background. A moving video showcasing Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's vocal prowess was also played. Other entertainers also took the stage as the evening progressed, and a series of short films and videos were shown to the audience. Earlier today, Defence Day was commemorated with traditional fervour and solemnity across the country, beginning with special prayers for the progress and prosperity of Pakistan. Change of guard ceremonies were held at the mausoleums of Allama Iqbal in Lahore and Quaid-i-Azam in Karachi, and a ceremony at the Pakistan Navy headquarters in Islamabad.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE ON 17TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11
http://globalvision2000.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=642

It has become clear that one of the factors of decline in Muslim power in the modern era especially compared to Europeans was falling back in terms of war preparedness. Everything from military science, technology, weopons, military-industrial complex, training , military doctrine and sixth generation warfare . This explains the rise of Europe and American empires as well as the use of Empire to support their currencies imperialism that is why we use the term the imperial dollar. The Ummah needs to break the nonMuslim monopoly and leadership in this domain if it is going to attain true and complete independence and subservience to these world powers. The resurrection and establishment of the KHILAFAH and KHALIFATE will replace the doctrine of MIGHT IS RIGHT AND WHITE IS RIGHT with an UNIVERSAL DOCTRINE AND RULE OF UNIVERSAL JUSTICE . Global Vision 2000 will chart the rise and transformation required and actually evolving in the Muslim world towards a UNITED STATES OF ISLAM ARMY. Even in the last world war WW2 which was a European civil war Muslim armies were extensively used to fight the battles of and for nonMuslims. Muslim blood was illegally expended futilely and is not fully acknowledged even today . This can not and must not be repeated in any future world conflict and the Ummah must reorientate and restructure itself to move in this direction. Global Vision 2000 will provide the vision for this to become a reality. >>>>>>>>>>>>>

We salute the caravan of Islam which has reached this glorious milestone as the immediate future holds the greatest days of Islam ever. We say hold fast and strong to the rope of Islam. This day also marks the 17th anniversary of the satanic false flag terror devised and executed by the enemies of Islam and Muslims. When they launched their murderous new crusade. Bush is caught actually using that term on a tv interview which has been edited now. Everyone should be clear that this GWOT is a Global War of Terror on Islam and Muslims which will boomerang. Every cause will have effect. The significance of this date needs to be clarified for our times.

Firstly, so what happened 1440 years ago when England and the British Isles was being evangelised with Pauline Christianity? The AH refers to Annum Hijra ie the year when the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) migrated from Makkah to Yathrib(Madinah) in 622 AD. He was invited by the tribes of Madinah to establish Islam as the ruling ideology and government. Both Muslims and nonMuslims need to reflect on the significance of this crossroads in early Islamic history. By 632 this is what happened. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUzQLoyAZKc.


In the 7th century the pagan Arabian tribes were disunited and feuding and the geopolitical context was dominated by 2 rival superpowers: Byzantium and Sassanid. The world was engulfed by paganism, idolatry and imperialism and Muslims refer to this era as of ignorance and darkness- Jahiliyyah. Fast track 1440 years on and it appears nothing has really changed in our 21st century. Our world with over 8000 million human sapiens is engulfed in a new age of ignorance and darkness of the NWO which is marked by fear, anger and extremes and a regime which demands subservience, servitude and hegemony or else. The only difference between then and now is the nature, scale, scope and impact of the NWO. The NWO and the age of Dajjal(Deceit) we are living in is on the verge of a convulsing crisis which will engulf our world and these forces are prepared to take the world down with them rather than change. The deaf, dumb and blind will regret eternally not paying heed to these words.

So where are we just now? Humanity is at an abyss and is facing self destruction as we have a bankrupt ideology and a bankrupt system in which the too big are not only too big to fail but too big to jail. These vultures have escaped Scot free since the great unwind of 2007-8 and are waiting for the next bubble to burst which can happen anytime. We should note that everything is being done to shore up the "imperial dollar" from QE , currency warfare, bailouts, tariffs and austerity. This has only polarised the wealth and gap between the rich and poor and via social media and the internet the mainstream media narrative has been broken and a new consciousness has arisen especially amongst the new generations.

The only hope for the world is the dawn of a moral political economy enshrining political economic justice for all which is the basis of the monotheistic universal Abrahamic paradigm. We can now state that a breakthrough has been made by Islamic justice parties in Turkey and now Pakistan which are Muslim majority States with the coming to power and government. In Turkey we have the AKP led by Tayyip Erdogan and in Pakistan the PTI led by Imran Khan. This should bring joy to the hearts of believers and a smile on their faces whilst no doubt anxiety and fear will arise only in the hearts and faces of the enemies of Islam. We now have the great news to announce in 1440/2018 that both Turkey and Pakistan who are blood brothers and are heirs to the legacy of the Ottoman and Mughal Empires. They are being slowly and surely re-aligned in the direction they should have started in 1923 and 1947. These legacy heirs in Europe and Asia are moving their post independence post war national states in the direction of Islam. Turkey's failed US backed military coup d'etat rebounded by bringing the Turkish nation to back the elected AKP government and a purge was activated. In 2018 the elections have entrenched the AKP Government with a new Presidential system.

In Pakistan a nation with a turbulent and volatile history the unforeseen and unexpected happened. The Panama paper leaks in July 2016 released evidence on the corruption of the Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif leading to his disqualification, resignation and eventual imprisonment. This was the final straw breaking the back of corruption and in the recent elections the Pakistan Movement for Justice PTI broke the political duopoly after 22 years since the founding of his political party. Imran Khan's Tehreek i Insaf PTI should be congratulated and saluted for his sweeping victory and we wish him the best. It should be noted this is just the first step in what can only be billed as the long march for justice and NAYA PAKISTAN(New Pakistan) needs to put back the "PAK" back into Pakistan as envisaged by Jinnah. Only by this commitment and change will the Ummah and world take notice insha'allah.

The sacrifices of Indian Muslims of the 20th century need to be realised for the masses now. As the winds of change are blowing in the east the time to move the stranded ship of Global Islam has arrived as the tide of history is coming in. The peoples dreams of the Universal Paradigm shift known as TABDEELI in the Indian subcontinent have been awakened and when realised sleeplessness disappears and the spirit awakens and soars upwards. Global Vision 2000 is pleased to announce some salient pre-requisites and the manifesto for this transformation.

Although my concerns for an ISLAMIC MANIFESTO for the 2IST CENTURY have been dormant since my youth . I am proposing some suggestions herewith. This means that the time to establish an United States of Islam army upholding the sovereignty, integrity and security of the Khilafa and Khilafate has arrived. As it is clear that one of the factors of decline in Muslim power in the modern era especially compared to Europeans was falling back in terms of war preparedness. Everything from military science and technology, weopons, military-industrial complex, training, military doctrine and sixth generation warfare . This explains the rise of Europe and American empires as well as the use of Empire to support their currencies imperialism that is why we use the term the imperial dollar.

The Ummah needs to break the nonMuslim monopoly and leadership in this domain if it is going to attain true and complete independence and subservience to these world powers. The resurrection and establishment of the Khilafah and Khalifate will replace the doctrine of Might is Right and White is Right with an universal doctrine and rule of universal justice. Even in the last world war WW2 which was a European civil war Muslim armies were extensively used to fight the battles of and for nonMuslims. Muslim blood was illegally expended futilely and is not fully acknowledged even today . This can not and must not be repeated in any future world conflict and the Ummah must reorientate and restructure itself to move in this direction.

This GWOT attack since 2001 has not only only led to the fragmentation or occupation of Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria but also the sparking of a Sunni-Shia civil war. So the United States of Islamic army will need to intervene to end these conflicts and tensions.

This urgent need has been seen again with the recent genocide committed by Burmese Buddhists. All we saw was the shedding of crocodile tears. Enough is enough innocents butchered whilst the world walks by. Global Vision 2000 wont. . The prosecution of genocidal Nazi Buddhist war criminals and Aung San Suu Kyi is not enough; What about sanctions and regime change. The times demand nothing more or less than raising a real independent global transnational Islamic army of justice defending the defenceless and taking on the oppressors and giving them some of their own medicine. Suffice it to state that the exact nature of this new entity and it's parameters will be dictated by a NON KHWARIJITE interpretation of the doctrine of JIHAD. What is being called for will not be another Western NATO proxy like AL Qaeda or Daesh nor any sectarian entity such as Hizbullah. This is inevitable just as we see the sunset and sunrise. We herald and salute it's dawn.

The implications of this is clear and that means the return of the Kingdom of Hejaz in the Arabian peninsula to it's former sovereignty as an independent political entity controlled by Global Islam as Makkah and Madinah need to be free to be effective. Since the establishment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the auspices of the Anglo American Zionist axis Global Islam has been neutered and it has to be freed and liberated from these constraints. Likewise it is clear that Global Islam can no longer tolerate the constraints and dictated interpretation of Najdi Saudi literal interpretation of Wahabbi Islam which was never mainstream Sunni Islam until patronised and sponsored by the British empire. As the heart beat of the Ummah with the annual Hajj and Umrah it has to be liberated from being a mere ritual increasingly becoming a privilege and playground for the well off and rich. It needs to be transformed into the base and centre for a global ecosystem of mutual solidarity and the defence and integrity of the Ummah.


The GWOT has also unleashed a climate of global Islamophobia as the wars both covertly and transparent need to demonise the other the enemy within or out there to create and justify the trillions of dollars or euros spent in this campaign. This needs to be deconstructed by activating DAWAH to neutralise hate campaigns from wherever and whenever. But that is not sufficient and that is why Global Vision 2000 has been focussing on the Universal Islamic values of justice especially universal economic justice where Islam is viewed as a solution for all of humanity. Indeed because Islam is the only remaining civilisational force offering an alternative to the demise of the NWO it is being demonised. Islam needs to be presented NOT as a ritual or doctrine but as a spiritual and moral civilisation offering a holistic sustainable alternative to the crisis ridden and defunct neoliberal financial usurious destructive global capitalistic system and secular fundamentalism which is leading to nihilism.

ASHURA A DAY THAT SHAKES THE SPIRITUAL WORLD

MUHARRAM AND ASHURA

ARBAEEN WORLD's BIGGEST PILGRIMAGE

THE SPIRITUAL WALK - NAJAF TO KARBALA WALK, ARBAEEN
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2dct8FzvQs


The Month of Muharram is here. We have stepped into 1440 Hijri of the Islamic Calender . And We have started our Year with one of the most blessed months- Muharram. Allah says in Quran that “Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar)….”

[Quran, Surah Al-Tawbah 9:36]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The division of time has turned to its original form which was current the day Allah created the heavens and earth. The year consists of twelve months of which four are sacred: three consecutive months, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab of Mudar which comes between Jumada and Sha’baan.”

Hadith mentioned in al-Bukhaari (3167) and Muslim (1679) as narrated from Abu Bakrah (may Allah be pleased with him)]

There are many misconceptions in the Ummah regarding Muharram. Many of us mix the Shia and Sunni aqeedah . Here I am including some lectures and Videos that can help you educate about Muharram and Ashura. Hope you find them Useful. But before that I would like to clarify some aqeedah of Shia and Sunni on the event of Ashura.

How Shia Observe Ashura

For the majority of Shi’a Muslims, Ashura marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram, and commemorates the death of Husayn ibn Ali RA , the grandson of Muhammad SAW at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH . Shia Imams strongly insist that the day of Ashura should not be celebrated as a day of joy and festivity. The day of Ashura, according to Eighth Shia Imam Ali al-Rida, must be observed as a day of rest, sorrow, and total disregard of worldly matters. Some of the events associated with Ashura are held in special congregation halls known as “Imambargah” and Hussainia .

Shi’as make pilgrimages on Ashura, as they do forty days later on Arba’een, to the Mashhad al-Husayn, the shrine in Karbala, Iraq, that is traditionally held to be Husayn’s tomb. On this day Shi’a are in remembrance, and mourning attire is worn. They refrain from listening to or playing music. They have a certain traditional flagellation rituals such as Talwar zani (talwar ka matam or sometimes tatbir) use a sword. Other rituals such as zanjeer zani or zanjeer matam involve the use of a zanjeer (a chain with blades).

How Sunni Observe Ashura

Based on the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (saws), Sunni Muslims celebrate Ashura as the day when Prophet Moses (Moosa) fasted on that day because Allah saved the Israelites from their enemy in Egypt. One of the many Ahadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) that attests to that is in Bukhari that states: Narrated by al-Bukhari (1865) from Ibn ‘Abbaas, who said: The Prophet (saws) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashoora. He said, “What is this?” They said, “This is a good day, this is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy and Moosa fasted on this day.” He (the Prophet Muhammad) said, “We are closer to Moosa (Prophet Moses) than you.” So Prophet Muhammad fasted on this day in Muharram and told the people to fast.

There are many other versions of this Hadith in the books of “Muslim” and “Bukhari”.
According to a version narrated by Muslim, This is a great day when Allah saved Moosa (Moses) and his people and drowned Pharaoh and his people.” Sunni Muslims celebrate Ashura by fasting on that day. Usually, Sunni Muslims are recommended to fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram.

Al-Shafa’i and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaaq and others said: It is mustahabb [recommended] to fast both the ninth and the tenth, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) fasted the tenth and intended to fast the ninth. Based on this, there are different ways of fasting ‘Ashoora’, the least of which is to fast the tenth only, but it is better to fast the ninth as well. The more one fasts in Muharram, the better.

Other Ahadith on the subject are the following:

The prophet observed the fast on Ashura (the 10th of Muharram), and ordered (Muslims) to fast on that day. (Agreed upon Hadith i.e. Bukhari & Muslim).

Narrated by Abi Katada: The prophet was asked about fasting on Ashura (the 10th of Muharram), he said: “it expiates the previous year (for sins).” (Sahih Muslim)

It was proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that the best fasting after Ramadan is fasting in the month of Muharram. It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah, Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” Narrated by Muslim, 1163.


HUSAYNS OF THE WORLD STILL STAND ALONE
Zafar Bangash
https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articl...tand-alone

This is the month of al-Muharram, the first in the Islamic lunar calendar. It is one of the three sacred months that fall together and follows immediately after Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the lunar year. In Dhu al-Hijjah, Muslims sacrifice a lamb that was substituted for Isma‘il when Allah (swt) commanded Ibrahim (a) to make the sacrifice. In al-Muharram, Imam Husayn (a) offered his life and that of his family members and close companions. The life that was spared in Dhu al-Hijjah was thus offered in al-Muharram to save Islam.

Imam Husayn’s principled stand, demanding the supreme sacrifice of his life, slammed the door in the face of usurpers and tyrants to seek legitimacy for their illegitimate rule. His lonely struggle is repeated in many parts of the world, regrettably with the same tragic consequences. The Husayns of the world again stand alone despite Muslims commemorating ‘Ashura’ every year. In al-Muharram, the virtues of Imam Husayn (a) are extolled from every minbar but the world is still full of Yazids. Why?

Regrettably, large numbers of Muslims have lost their way in peripheral issues and become engrossed in rituals. The illegitimate rulers and their court ‘ulama’ deliberately foster this attitude. The reason is to divert attention from the revolutionary spirit of Islam and the purpose of Imam Husayn’s struggle for truth and justice.

Today the Rohingya Muslims join a long list of other oppressed people from Kashmir to Palestine, and Iraq and Syria to Yemen facing their own Karbala’. The greater tragedy is that the Yazids too have multiplied. While millions of Muslims extol the great virtues and sacrifice of Imam Husayn (a), joined even by some Muslim rulers, the same rulers simultaneously indulge in Yazidi practices. Their torture chambers echo with the cries of today’s Husayns. While the great Imam adopted a principled stand against injustice, these rulers indulge in oppression, tyranny, and gross injustices.

If Imam Husayn (a) and his family stood alone on the blistering sand of Karbala’ 1,400 years ago, today the Rohingya Muslims stand alone in the squalid refugee camps of Bangladesh. The children of Ghazzah are besieged from all sides and are being starved to death, as were Imam Husayn, his children, and grandchildren. The people of Kashmir face the guns and bullets of a brutal Indian army as Imam Husayn faced the heavily armed Yazidi army with its swords and spears drawn.

So what has really changed in 1,400 years? The struggle between haqq and batil is as old as human history. When Iblis refused to obey Allah’s (swt) command to prostrate before Adam (a), the struggle between obedience and defiance came out into the open.


Muslims would do well to remember that Iblis was not a mushrik; it was his arrogance and sense of self-proclaimed superiority that led him to disobey Allah (swt). Can Muslims not make the connection between Iblis’ conduct and that of the Muslim rulers today?

Yazid and his men were militarily victorious in Karbala’, but how many Muslims celebrate his “triumph” today? Which Muslim in his right mind can say that Yazid was fighting for justice? Imam Husayn (a) died, but ultimate victory belonged to him. As the revolutionary leader and poet Maulana Muhammad Ali Johar said in this couplet,


Qatl-e Husayn asl main marg-e Yazeed hay (The murder of Husayn is in reality the death of Yazid),

Islam zinda hota hay her Karbala kay baad

(Islam’s revival occurs after every tragedy like Karbala).

Let us also be clear about the true nature of Imam Husayn’s sacrifice. He did not struggle for worldly gain or power; he was aware that if he gave in to the demands of Yazid, it would destroy Islam. For him, Islamic principles were more important than his personal well-being. He died in a strange land after witnessing the murder of almost all members of his family and close companions; he preferred to die rather than compromise with Zulm and oppression.



When asked to give allegiance to Yazid and save his life, he exclaimed, “A man like me cannot give allegiance to a man like Yazid!” Such clarity of vision, purpose, and commitment are lacking among Muslims today; this is what has led to the Muslims’ present sorry predicament.


Imam Husayn (a) had correctly diagnosed the problem confronting the Ummah in his time. It was a question of illegitimacy and the usurpation of power and authority by unscrupulous people totally unfit to rule. He raised his voice against it; regrettably, there were not enough Muslims willing to offer their lives for Islam’s principles. Even many of those who initially joined the Imam eventually betrayed him. Yet this does not detract from his principled stand and his willingness to offer his own life in order not to lend weight to the corruption of Islamic principles.


END THE SILENCE ON ASHURA
Salina Khan
https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articles/end-the-silence-on-ashura

The sacred month of Muharram follows the sacred month of Dhul Hijjah. Salina Khan argues that the true significance of Ashura and the martyrdom of Imam Hussain must be addressed honestly to create awareness among Muslims about issues of legitimacy, justice, dignity and freedom in Islam.

Salina Khan writes an open letter to the silent majority.

It will break my heart if I have to sit through another typical ‘Ashura gathering. That is why I have decided to write this letter appealing for full disclosure and impartiality from scholars lecturing at most masjids around the world. At many of these commemorations, much time is spent relating how Allah (swt) blessed a string of noble prophets on ‘Ashura, the 10th day of the sacred month of al-Muharram, as they spread the divine message on earth. But little to no time is given to discuss the ‘Ashura event that safeguarded this same message from corruption after the era of the prophets came to an end.

This event was the sacrifice of Imam Husayn, the grandson of the final prophet, Muhammad (pbuh), and son of Fatimah (one of the four perfect women), a courageous soul who stood up against an illegitimate regime to save Allah’s (swt) rule from the clutches of tyranny, corruption and oppression. As poet Allama Iqbal wrote,“The story of the Kabah is unfortunate, simple and colorful. It began with Isma‘il and ended with Husayn.”

So, respected scholars, when you remind us on the 10th of al-Muharram that on this day, that Adam (a) was forgiven after his exile, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he is chief of the youth of those eternal gardens of Paradise.

…that Noah (a) was rescued on the ark, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as his family was likened to that ship of salvation. The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Whoever embarked on it was saved, and whoever turned away from it perished.”

…that Moses (a) defeated Pharoah, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he resisted the pharaoh of his time with faith, nobility and valor. Imam Husayn said, “I have not come out with the intention of violence and rebellion or in obedience to my passions, and it is not my object to create mischief on the earth or to oppress anyone. My only object is to reform the affairs of the Muslim Ummah and to act according to the conduct of my father and grandfather.”

…that Jacob was reunited with his son Joseph (a), remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he lost on this day his young sons, including a thirsty baby pierced by an arrow in the neck while being cradled in his arms.

…that Abraham (a) was protected from the fire, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he was left the last man standing “under the blazing sun, on the parched land and against the stifling heat of Arabia,” in the words of historian Washington Irving.


Now, don’t stop short. Continue the narrative by reminding us what our own Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did on this fateful day. With dust on his head and dust in his beard, he was the first to propagate the plight of Husayn, the grandchild he once cuddled in his lap and rode on his back. “I have just been at the slaying of al-Husayn,” he told his wife Umm Salamah in a dream of hers, according to her tearful narration (recorded by al-Tirmidhi).


Respected scholars, I ask you to disseminate the story of Imam Husayn far and wide — not for the sake of historical truth or inclusiveness — but because it is the Sunnah (social convention) of the Prophet (pbuh) and exactly what the world needs right now!


People in all corners of the globe are finally wising up to the injustices being committed against them. It is from Imam Husayn they can learn how a small cadre of people dedicated to truth, peace and justice can undertake a successful struggle against tyrannical regimes with wide-reaching control. “Let humanity awaken and every tribe will claim Imam Husayn for their own,” predicts poet Josh Malihabadi.
The rest, as they say, is history.




YOM KIPPUR AND ASHOURA : ARE MUSLIMS OBSERVING A JEWISH HOLIDAY?
Hamid Dabashi

The Judeo-Islamic tradition has deep historical roots that Zionism and Islamism have tried to erase
https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio...52458.html

On the Gregorian calendar (so named after Pope Gregory XIII) this September, two of the holiest Jewish and Islamic high holidays coincide. On September 10, Jews around the world began their high holidays by commemorating Rosh Hashana which continues for 10 days until September 19, Yom Kippur. It is on that day that Muslims in general, and Shia in particular, commemorate the sacred day of Tasu'a and then a day later - Ashoura - the 9th and 10th of the Islamic month of Muharram respectively.

Both the Jewish and Islamic calendars are lunar while the Gregorian calendar on which they are being cast is solar. The lunar calendar is 11 days shorter than the solar and for that reason, though stable on their own respective calendars, Jewish and Islamic holidays appear to "roam" aimlessly on the Christian calendar. None of this is "the fault" of either the Jewish or the Islamic calendar. Given the way in which the Christian calendar has been imperially universalised, the other two may look erratic and confusing, but Jewish and Islamic high holy days are perfectly logical, routine, and regular.

The twain have met
Both Jewish and Muslim observers have noticed this proximity between Yom Kippur and Ashoura. On the occasion of the two holidays coinciding in 2016, Rabbi Allen S Maller noted how "both holy days occur on the 10th day of the month, Muharram for Muslims and Tishri for Jews." By way of explanation, he adds: "In ancient times the two branches of Abraham's house followed the same lunar-solar system of intercalating an additional month 7 times in a cycle of 19 years. Thus, the 7th Jewish month of Tishri coincided with Muharram; and the 'Ashura (10th) of Muharram synchronized with the 10th of Tishri, the Jewish Day of Atonement - a day of fast."

On the occasion of a similar concurrence in 2015, Haroon Moghul , a Muslim American writer and a fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, wrote in a piece for CNN: "If you're wondering why Muslims would celebrate a Jewish holiday, that's because neither [Prophet] Mohammed nor the Early Muslims saw themselves as part of a new faith." Both Maller and Moghul cite an authentic prophetic hadith, according to which Prophet Muhammad once encountered Jews in Medina fasting on the 10th of Muharram/Tishrei and joined them in their fast. Thus the origin of this overlap in tradition is traced back to the time of the Prophet himself.

Thinking in Judeo-Islamic terms
The similarities, correspondences and affinities of such aspects of Islam and Judaism are only strange or bizarre to those who have fallen into the trap of falsely projecting the Zionist colonial adventurism in Palestine backwards onto history and positing an entrenched hostility between Jews and Muslims. Like Christianity, Islam is deeply influenced by Judaism and has an even stronger proximity to its theological monotheism. This is not a matter of opinion or ideological position. It is a matter of historical fact. The infamous statement of former US president Barack Obama that "The Middle East is going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia," is typical of the ahistorical gibberish that manufactures hostility between Islam and Judaism, and perforce between Jews and Muslims. By making such declarations, Obama projects his own criminal role in prolonging the Palestinian suffering under Zionist occupation to some distant past that never was.

Much of the confusion and conflation of Judaism and Zionism, and particularly the false and pernicious extension of the charge of anti-Semitism against Muslims, have the same roots as this forced approximation of both Jewish and Islamic calendars to the Gregorian calendar - where Jews and Muslims are forced to see each other in Christian terms. Zionism is the condition of Jewish alienation from Judaism, precisely in the way militant Islamism is the condition of self-alienation for Muslims. Contrary to "the Judeo-Christian" concoction (contested and contradicted by a long history of Christian anti-Semitism), the idea of Judeo-Islamic tradition is not based on any political or ideological project but evident in the most robust period of Jewish and Islamic philosophies that is unrivalled in any other tradition.

Consider the fact that saying these Jewish and Islamic holidays are on such and such days in September is entirely meaningless to both Jews and Muslims and the inner rhythm of their own respective calendars. We are forced to do so because we are writing in English (as opposed to Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu, etc.) and using what is called "Common Era," or "Civic Calendar". Both of these expressions are actually nervous and futile attempts to disguise the fact that we are all forced to use an imperial Christian calendar, which is ipso facto a distortion of the time and narrative of both Jews and Muslims and which approximates them to a dominant Christian temporal order. As a European colonial project, Zionism was formed in a decidedly Christian context and its endemic anti-Semitism - most violently evident in the course of the Crusades - of endless pogroms and, ultimately, the Holocaust. But before and beyond the Zionist abuse of Judaism (similar to the Islamist abuse of Islam in Iran and Saudi Arabia, or colonial abuse of Christianity in the US, the fundamentalist abuse of Hinduism in India, or the nationalist abuse of Buddhism in Myanmar), there is an enduring and historically grounded proximity to the Judeo-Islamic heritage which started even before the Golden Era of Andalusia.

From Saadia Gaon (882-942) to Yehuda Halevi (1075-1141) to Maimonides (1135-1204), the leading luminaries of Jewish philosophy were in enduring conversation with their Muslim counterpart - Avicenna (980-1037), Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111) and Averroes (1126-1198). This Judeo-Islamic philosophical tradition was real and not created out of any political convenience or necessity. Today, militant Zionism, puritanical Islamism and evangelical imperialism are collectively invested in concealing these historical facts and either denying or else catapulting the profound heritage of Judeo-Islamic philosophy back into "ancient times".

Political Islamism, militant Zionism, Christian imperialism
Racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic anti-Semites like Steve Bannon (a strong advocate of Israel) now use the term "Judeo-Christian tradition" as a subterfuge to fabricate a common religious foregrounding for anti-Muslim bigotry. There is an entire bloody history of Jewish suffering defying that hyphenated delusion of "Judeo-Christian" heritage. How could a racist, Christian-Zionist anti-Semite lay a claim on any "Judeo-Christian" heritage - except as a ridiculously transparent Islamophobic trope? The fact of the Judeo-Islamic tradition, however, is far more potent historical evidence than semi-literate propaganda officers like Bannon and his ilk can even fathom, let alone contest.

Three complementary ideological fanaticisms are chiefly responsible for the sustained bifurcation manufactured today between Islam and Judaism - all of them handmade by European colonialism, all of them invested in denying and dismissing the legacies of the Judeo-Islamic tradition. Militant Islamism, fanatical Zionism and Christian imperialism are the triangulated foregrounding of fear and fanaticism that has wreaked havoc in our world and systematically and consistently distorted the clarity of our historical visions. Wahhabism in Saudi Arabia, militant Shi'ism in Iran, and Zionism in Israel are today the identical ideological byproducts of European colonialism. In opposition to European colonialism, militant Islamism (both the Sunni and Shia versions of it), stripped Islamic intellectual history of its factual pluralistic and cosmopolitan character, reducing it to a singular site of resistance to European colonialism. In the same vein, Zionism, extending the racist logic of European colonialism into the heart of the Arab world, stripped Judaism of its equally worldly moral imagination.

Fanatical Islamism, settler colonial Zionism and imperial evangelicalism are chiefly responsible for this manufactured rift between Judaism and Islam against the historical grain of their proximities. And precisely for that reason, any legitimate criticism of Zionism as a racist colonial project that spills over into a racist attack on Judaism and Jews is falling fast into the Zionist trap and by definition is anti-Semitic. Of course, what has historically exacerbated the mutual impacts of Islamism and Zionism is the course of Christian imperialism, now best represented in the racist malignancies of the likes of Steve Bannon. His brand of evangelical imperialism now actively presides over and exacerbates both militant Islamism and fanatical Zionism. Steve Bannon, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Naftali Bennett are all cut from the same cloth.

Retrieving a lost cosmopolitan culture
To state and repeat the obvious: not all Zionists are Jews and not all Jews are Zionists. Christian and now even Muslim and Hindu Zionists are among the wealthiest and most powerful, sustaining the calamitous course of the colonisation of Palestine. That is the end of the false and deliberate Zionist conflation of their violent state ideology with Judaism - precisely on the model of the abuse of Islam and Muslims by Islamist ideologies now ruling in Iran and Saudi Arabia. In their mutual hostilities against each other, they are in fact steadfastly united with each other in robbing Judaism, Christianity and Islam of their shared legacies, blinding the world to reason and sanity. The idea of a much closer proximity between Islam and Judaism than now deliberately clouded by the Zionist colonial project does not mean historically there has not been a relation of power between the two world religions.

From its very inception, Islam has been definitive to multiple and successive world empires - in which (from the Umayyads and the Abbasids to the Safavids and the Ottomans) Zoroastrian, Jewish, and Christian communities have lived. There could not have possibly been any equality between the ruling elite of the powerful Muslim empires and these small minorities in their domains. That in these dynastic and imperial Muslim contexts there has been a Judeo-Islamic philosophical tradition unrivalled anywhere else in the world is a testimony to the presence of potent intellectual thrusts among Muslim and Jewish philosophers responding to the mighty heritage of Greek philosophical tradition they shared.

The fates of both Judaism and Islam have been pitted against each other in the context of European colonial conquests in Arab lands, giving almost simultaneous birth to militant Zionism and triumphalist Islamism - one as a colonial and the other as an anti-colonial project of violent state-formation. Militant Islamism and bellicose Zionism are coterminous with the Christian imperialism that frames them both. All these three triumphalist ideologies are morally bankrupt projects. The task at hand is how to save Islam, Judaism, and Christianity - as three world religions and concurrent frames of our moral imagination - from the claws of so many decades of epistemic abuse. The concurrence of Yom Kippur and Ashoura this September is a gentle reminder of a much different history than the one mandated in Palestine and beyond by the malignant disease of European colonialism.

There is nothing wrong with Muslims celebrating a Jewish holiday while commemorating their own most sacrosanct days. There is nothing wrong with Jews looking at a Muslim holiday and seeing the distant mirror of their own ancient beliefs. If either of those two sentences sounds odd today, we need to overcome both fanatical Zionism and militant Islamism, upend Steve Bannon's Christian imperialism, so we can remember and retrieve a history of the world now hidden under the heavy smokescreen of fanaticism, ignorance and greed.

THE SPIRITUAL WALK - NAJAF TO KARBALA WALK, ARBAEEN
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2dct8FzvQs


The Month of Muharram is here. We have stepped into 1440 Hijri of the Islamic Calender . And We have started our Year with one of the most blessed months- Muharram. Allah says in Quran that “Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar)….”

[Quran, Surah Al-Tawbah 9:36]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The division of time has turned to its original form which was current the day Allah created the heavens and earth. The year consists of twelve months of which four are sacred: three consecutive months, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab of Mudar which comes between Jumada and Sha’baan.”

Hadith mentioned in al-Bukhaari (3167) and Muslim (1679) as narrated from Abu Bakrah (may Allah be pleased with him)]

There are many misconceptions in the Ummah regarding Muharram. Many of us mix the Shia and Sunni aqeedah . Here I am including some lectures and Videos that can help you educate about Muharram and Ashura. Hope you find them Useful. But before that I would like to clarify some aqeedah of Shia and Sunni on the event of Ashura.

How Shia Observe Ashura

For the majority of Shi’a Muslims, Ashura marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram, and commemorates the death of Husayn ibn Ali RA , the grandson of Muhammad SAW at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH . Shia Imams strongly insist that the day of Ashura should not be celebrated as a day of joy and festivity. The day of Ashura, according to Eighth Shia Imam Ali al-Rida, must be observed as a day of rest, sorrow, and total disregard of worldly matters. Some of the events associated with Ashura are held in special congregation halls known as “Imambargah” and Hussainia .

Shi’as make pilgrimages on Ashura, as they do forty days later on Arba’een, to the Mashhad al-Husayn, the shrine in Karbala, Iraq, that is traditionally held to be Husayn’s tomb. On this day Shi’a are in remembrance, and mourning attire is worn. They refrain from listening to or playing music. They have a certain traditional flagellation rituals such as Talwar zani (talwar ka matam or sometimes tatbir) use a sword. Other rituals such as zanjeer zani or zanjeer matam involve the use of a zanjeer (a chain with blades).

How Sunni Observe Ashura

Based on the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (saws), Sunni Muslims celebrate Ashura as the day when Prophet Moses (Moosa) fasted on that day because Allah saved the Israelites from their enemy in Egypt. One of the many Ahadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) that attests to that is in Bukhari that states: Narrated by al-Bukhari (1865) from Ibn ‘Abbaas, who said: The Prophet (saws) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashoora. He said, “What is this?” They said, “This is a good day, this is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemy and Moosa fasted on this day.” He (the Prophet Muhammad) said, “We are closer to Moosa (Prophet Moses) than you.” So Prophet Muhammad fasted on this day in Muharram and told the people to fast.

There are many other versions of this Hadith in the books of “Muslim” and “Bukhari”.
According to a version narrated by Muslim, This is a great day when Allah saved Moosa (Moses) and his people and drowned Pharaoh and his people.” Sunni Muslims celebrate Ashura by fasting on that day. Usually, Sunni Muslims are recommended to fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram.

Al-Shafa’i and his companions, Ahmad, Ishaaq and others said: It is mustahabb [recommended] to fast both the ninth and the tenth, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) fasted the tenth and intended to fast the ninth. Based on this, there are different ways of fasting ‘Ashoora’, the least of which is to fast the tenth only, but it is better to fast the ninth as well. The more one fasts in Muharram, the better.

Other Ahadith on the subject are the following:

The prophet observed the fast on Ashura (the 10th of Muharram), and ordered (Muslims) to fast on that day. (Agreed upon Hadith i.e. Bukhari & Muslim).

Narrated by Abi Katada: The prophet was asked about fasting on Ashura (the 10th of Muharram), he said: “it expiates the previous year (for sins).” (Sahih Muslim)

It was proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that the best fasting after Ramadan is fasting in the month of Muharram. It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah, Muharram, and the best prayer after the obligatory prayer is prayer at night.” Narrated by Muslim, 1163.


HUSAYNS OF THE WORLD STILL STAND ALONE
Zafar Bangash
https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articl...tand-alone

This is the month of al-Muharram, the first in the Islamic lunar calendar. It is one of the three sacred months that fall together and follows immediately after Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the lunar year. In Dhu al-Hijjah, Muslims sacrifice a lamb that was substituted for Isma‘il when Allah (swt) commanded Ibrahim (a) to make the sacrifice. In al-Muharram, Imam Husayn (a) offered his life and that of his family members and close companions. The life that was spared in Dhu al-Hijjah was thus offered in al-Muharram to save Islam.

Imam Husayn’s principled stand, demanding the supreme sacrifice of his life, slammed the door in the face of usurpers and tyrants to seek legitimacy for their illegitimate rule. His lonely struggle is repeated in many parts of the world, regrettably with the same tragic consequences. The Husayns of the world again stand alone despite Muslims commemorating ‘Ashura’ every year. In al-Muharram, the virtues of Imam Husayn (a) are extolled from every minbar but the world is still full of Yazids. Why?

Regrettably, large numbers of Muslims have lost their way in peripheral issues and become engrossed in rituals. The illegitimate rulers and their court ‘ulama’ deliberately foster this attitude. The reason is to divert attention from the revolutionary spirit of Islam and the purpose of Imam Husayn’s struggle for truth and justice.

Today the Rohingya Muslims join a long list of other oppressed people from Kashmir to Palestine, and Iraq and Syria to Yemen facing their own Karbala’. The greater tragedy is that the Yazids too have multiplied. While millions of Muslims extol the great virtues and sacrifice of Imam Husayn (a), joined even by some Muslim rulers, the same rulers simultaneously indulge in Yazidi practices. Their torture chambers echo with the cries of today’s Husayns. While the great Imam adopted a principled stand against injustice, these rulers indulge in oppression, tyranny, and gross injustices.

If Imam Husayn (a) and his family stood alone on the blistering sand of Karbala’ 1,400 years ago, today the Rohingya Muslims stand alone in the squalid refugee camps of Bangladesh. The children of Ghazzah are besieged from all sides and are being starved to death, as were Imam Husayn, his children, and grandchildren. The people of Kashmir face the guns and bullets of a brutal Indian army as Imam Husayn faced the heavily armed Yazidi army with its swords and spears drawn.

So what has really changed in 1,400 years? The struggle between haqq and batil is as old as human history. When Iblis refused to obey Allah’s (swt) command to prostrate before Adam (a), the struggle between obedience and defiance came out into the open.


Muslims would do well to remember that Iblis was not a mushrik; it was his arrogance and sense of self-proclaimed superiority that led him to disobey Allah (swt). Can Muslims not make the connection between Iblis’ conduct and that of the Muslim rulers today?

Yazid and his men were militarily victorious in Karbala’, but how many Muslims celebrate his “triumph” today? Which Muslim in his right mind can say that Yazid was fighting for justice? Imam Husayn (a) died, but ultimate victory belonged to him. As the revolutionary leader and poet Maulana Muhammad Ali Johar said in this couplet,


Qatl-e Husayn asl main marg-e Yazeed hay (The murder of Husayn is in reality the death of Yazid),

Islam zinda hota hay her Karbala kay baad

(Islam’s revival occurs after every tragedy like Karbala).

Let us also be clear about the true nature of Imam Husayn’s sacrifice. He did not struggle for worldly gain or power; he was aware that if he gave in to the demands of Yazid, it would destroy Islam. For him, Islamic principles were more important than his personal well-being. He died in a strange land after witnessing the murder of almost all members of his family and close companions; he preferred to die rather than compromise with Zulm and oppression.



When asked to give allegiance to Yazid and save his life, he exclaimed, “A man like me cannot give allegiance to a man like Yazid!” Such clarity of vision, purpose, and commitment are lacking among Muslims today; this is what has led to the Muslims’ present sorry predicament.


Imam Husayn (a) had correctly diagnosed the problem confronting the Ummah in his time. It was a question of illegitimacy and the usurpation of power and authority by unscrupulous people totally unfit to rule. He raised his voice against it; regrettably, there were not enough Muslims willing to offer their lives for Islam’s principles. Even many of those who initially joined the Imam eventually betrayed him. Yet this does not detract from his principled stand and his willingness to offer his own life in order not to lend weight to the corruption of Islamic principles.


END THE SILENCE ON ASHURA
Salina Khan
https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articles/end-the-silence-on-ashura

The sacred month of Muharram follows the sacred month of Dhul Hijjah. Salina Khan argues that the true significance of Ashura and the martyrdom of Imam Hussain must be addressed honestly to create awareness among Muslims about issues of legitimacy, justice, dignity and freedom in Islam.

Salina Khan writes an open letter to the silent majority.

It will break my heart if I have to sit through another typical ‘Ashura gathering. That is why I have decided to write this letter appealing for full disclosure and impartiality from scholars lecturing at most masjids around the world. At many of these commemorations, much time is spent relating how Allah (swt) blessed a string of noble prophets on ‘Ashura, the 10th day of the sacred month of al-Muharram, as they spread the divine message on earth. But little to no time is given to discuss the ‘Ashura event that safeguarded this same message from corruption after the era of the prophets came to an end.

This event was the sacrifice of Imam Husayn, the grandson of the final prophet, Muhammad (pbuh), and son of Fatimah (one of the four perfect women), a courageous soul who stood up against an illegitimate regime to save Allah’s (swt) rule from the clutches of tyranny, corruption and oppression. As poet Allama Iqbal wrote,“The story of the Kabah is unfortunate, simple and colorful. It began with Isma‘il and ended with Husayn.”

So, respected scholars, when you remind us on the 10th of al-Muharram that on this day, that Adam (a) was forgiven after his exile, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he is chief of the youth of those eternal gardens of Paradise.

…that Noah (a) was rescued on the ark, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as his family was likened to that ship of salvation. The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Whoever embarked on it was saved, and whoever turned away from it perished.”

…that Moses (a) defeated Pharoah, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he resisted the pharaoh of his time with faith, nobility and valor. Imam Husayn said, “I have not come out with the intention of violence and rebellion or in obedience to my passions, and it is not my object to create mischief on the earth or to oppress anyone. My only object is to reform the affairs of the Muslim Ummah and to act according to the conduct of my father and grandfather.”

…that Jacob was reunited with his son Joseph (a), remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he lost on this day his young sons, including a thirsty baby pierced by an arrow in the neck while being cradled in his arms.

…that Abraham (a) was protected from the fire, remember to talk about Imam Husayn as he was left the last man standing “under the blazing sun, on the parched land and against the stifling heat of Arabia,” in the words of historian Washington Irving.


Now, don’t stop short. Continue the narrative by reminding us what our own Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did on this fateful day. With dust on his head and dust in his beard, he was the first to propagate the plight of Husayn, the grandchild he once cuddled in his lap and rode on his back. “I have just been at the slaying of al-Husayn,” he told his wife Umm Salamah in a dream of hers, according to her tearful narration (recorded by al-Tirmidhi).


Respected scholars, I ask you to disseminate the story of Imam Husayn far and wide — not for the sake of historical truth or inclusiveness — but because it is the Sunnah (social convention) of the Prophet (pbuh) and exactly what the world needs right now!


People in all corners of the globe are finally wising up to the injustices being committed against them. It is from Imam Husayn they can learn how a small cadre of people dedicated to truth, peace and justice can undertake a successful struggle against tyrannical regimes with wide-reaching control. “Let humanity awaken and every tribe will claim Imam Husayn for their own,” predicts poet Josh Malihabadi.
The rest, as they say, is history.




YOM KIPPUR AND ASHOURA : ARE MUSLIMS OBSERVING A JEWISH HOLIDAY?
Hamid Dabashi

The Judeo-Islamic tradition has deep historical roots that Zionism and Islamism have tried to erase
https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio...52458.html

On the Gregorian calendar (so named after Pope Gregory XIII) this September, two of the holiest Jewish and Islamic high holidays coincide. On September 10, Jews around the world began their high holidays by commemorating Rosh Hashana which continues for 10 days until September 19, Yom Kippur. It is on that day that Muslims in general, and Shia in particular, commemorate the sacred day of Tasu'a and then a day later - Ashoura - the 9th and 10th of the Islamic month of Muharram respectively.

Both the Jewish and Islamic calendars are lunar while the Gregorian calendar on which they are being cast is solar. The lunar calendar is 11 days shorter than the solar and for that reason, though stable on their own respective calendars, Jewish and Islamic holidays appear to "roam" aimlessly on the Christian calendar. None of this is "the fault" of either the Jewish or the Islamic calendar. Given the way in which the Christian calendar has been imperially universalised, the other two may look erratic and confusing, but Jewish and Islamic high holy days are perfectly logical, routine, and regular.

The twain have met
Both Jewish and Muslim observers have noticed this proximity between Yom Kippur and Ashoura. On the occasion of the two holidays coinciding in 2016, Rabbi Allen S Maller noted how "both holy days occur on the 10th day of the month, Muharram for Muslims and Tishri for Jews." By way of explanation, he adds: "In ancient times the two branches of Abraham's house followed the same lunar-solar system of intercalating an additional month 7 times in a cycle of 19 years. Thus, the 7th Jewish month of Tishri coincided with Muharram; and the 'Ashura (10th) of Muharram synchronized with the 10th of Tishri, the Jewish Day of Atonement - a day of fast."

On the occasion of a similar concurrence in 2015, Haroon Moghul , a Muslim American writer and a fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, wrote in a piece for CNN: "If you're wondering why Muslims would celebrate a Jewish holiday, that's because neither [Prophet] Mohammed nor the Early Muslims saw themselves as part of a new faith." Both Maller and Moghul cite an authentic prophetic hadith, according to which Prophet Muhammad once encountered Jews in Medina fasting on the 10th of Muharram/Tishrei and joined them in their fast. Thus the origin of this overlap in tradition is traced back to the time of the Prophet himself.

Thinking in Judeo-Islamic terms
The similarities, correspondences and affinities of such aspects of Islam and Judaism are only strange or bizarre to those who have fallen into the trap of falsely projecting the Zionist colonial adventurism in Palestine backwards onto history and positing an entrenched hostility between Jews and Muslims. Like Christianity, Islam is deeply influenced by Judaism and has an even stronger proximity to its theological monotheism. This is not a matter of opinion or ideological position. It is a matter of historical fact. The infamous statement of former US president Barack Obama that "The Middle East is going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia," is typical of the ahistorical gibberish that manufactures hostility between Islam and Judaism, and perforce between Jews and Muslims. By making such declarations, Obama projects his own criminal role in prolonging the Palestinian suffering under Zionist occupation to some distant past that never was.

Much of the confusion and conflation of Judaism and Zionism, and particularly the false and pernicious extension of the charge of anti-Semitism against Muslims, have the same roots as this forced approximation of both Jewish and Islamic calendars to the Gregorian calendar - where Jews and Muslims are forced to see each other in Christian terms. Zionism is the condition of Jewish alienation from Judaism, precisely in the way militant Islamism is the condition of self-alienation for Muslims. Contrary to "the Judeo-Christian" concoction (contested and contradicted by a long history of Christian anti-Semitism), the idea of Judeo-Islamic tradition is not based on any political or ideological project but evident in the most robust period of Jewish and Islamic philosophies that is unrivalled in any other tradition.

Consider the fact that saying these Jewish and Islamic holidays are on such and such days in September is entirely meaningless to both Jews and Muslims and the inner rhythm of their own respective calendars. We are forced to do so because we are writing in English (as opposed to Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu, etc.) and using what is called "Common Era," or "Civic Calendar". Both of these expressions are actually nervous and futile attempts to disguise the fact that we are all forced to use an imperial Christian calendar, which is ipso facto a distortion of the time and narrative of both Jews and Muslims and which approximates them to a dominant Christian temporal order. As a European colonial project, Zionism was formed in a decidedly Christian context and its endemic anti-Semitism - most violently evident in the course of the Crusades - of endless pogroms and, ultimately, the Holocaust. But before and beyond the Zionist abuse of Judaism (similar to the Islamist abuse of Islam in Iran and Saudi Arabia, or colonial abuse of Christianity in the US, the fundamentalist abuse of Hinduism in India, or the nationalist abuse of Buddhism in Myanmar), there is an enduring and historically grounded proximity to the Judeo-Islamic heritage which started even before the Golden Era of Andalusia.

This Judeo-Islamic philosophical tradition was real and not created out of any political convenience or necessity. Today, militant Zionism, puritanical Islamism and evangelical imperialism are collectively invested in concealing these historical facts and either denying or else catapulting the profound heritage of Judeo-Islamic philosophy back into "ancient times".

There is an entire bloody history of Jewish suffering defying that hyphenated delusion of "Judeo-Christian" heritage.

WHILE SOME MUSLIM STATES ARE STARTING TO SAY THE RIGHT THINGS AND ASSERT THEMSELVES ON THE WORLD STAGE AT LAST. THE REAL CHANGE WILL COME FROM THE PERIPHERY AND NOT FROM WHAT ARE POLITICALLY CORRECT STANCES. THE TIME TO OPENLY ARTICULATE AND DEFEND GLOBAL MUSLIM INTERESTS HAS ARRIVED. TRUMP NEEDS TO REALISE THAT HIS AMERICA FIRST DOCTRINE DOES NOT GIVE HIM AN UNILATERAL RIGHT TO PAX AMERICANA.

PAX ISLAMICA - A WORLD ISLAMIC CIVILISATION CAN NO LONGER BE MARGINALISED AND DEMONISED ANY LONGER AND ACT IN A SUBSERVIENT WAY. IN COLONIAL TIMES THERE WAS A PANISLAMIC ANTI-IMPERIALIST MOVEMENT WHICH WAS SNUFFED OUT IN THE 20TH CENTURY. NOW IN THE 21ST CENTURY WHEN THE MUSLIM HEARTLANDS ARE ONE OF THE MAJOR STAGES FOR CONFLICT AND SUBJECT TO A PHONEY GLOBAL WAR OF TERROR BY THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM AND MUSLIMS IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE DOCTRINE OF GLOBAL JIHAD BE RESURRECTED.

WE SHOULD REALISE THAT IN THE RISE OF EARLY ISLAM OVER 1400 YEARS IF AN INDIVIDUAL OR A NATION WHO WERE OPPRESSED AND CALLED FOR ASSISTANCE FROM OUTSIDE IT WOULD BE IMPERATIVE FOR THE MUSLIM LEADER AT THE TIME TO RESPOND WITH A CALL FOR A JIHAD TO LIBERATE THE VICTIMS FROM THE OPPRESSOR NO MATTER WHAT THE COST. THE PROPHET OF ISLAM IN HIS PROPHETIC SAYINGS STATED THAT ONE OF THE REASONS OF THE MUSLIM WORLDS CONDITION WILL BE AS IT IS NOW IN THE 21ST CENTURY DESPITE BEING 1:4 OF HUMANITY IS THE LOVE OF THE DUNYA- WORLD AND FEAR OF DEATH. THE CALL OF LIBERATION FROM CAPTURED MUSLIM MEN AND WOMEN EXPLAINS THE INITIAL ARRIVAL OF ISLAM IN INDIA AGAINST HINDU RAJA DAHIR IN SINDH IN 711 AND IN OPPRESSIVE BYZANTIUM EGYPT. THIS IS WHY ISLAM CAN NOT RISE ON THE GLOBAL STAGE UNLESS AND UNTIL THE RULES OF THE GAME ARE DISCARDED AND MUSLIMS ESTABLISH ISLAMIC JUSTICE TO REPLACE THE RULE OF MIGHT IS RIGHT. IF THERE IS GOING TO BE A GLOBAL CONFLICT EVERYONE NEEDS TO ESTABLISH THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR THOSE UPHOLDING TRUTH AND JUSTICE AGAINST FALSEHOOD. BUT THE PRE-CONDITION OF THIS IS TO ELIMINATE FEAR OF FEAR AND TRANSCEND LIMITATIONS WITH DIVINE SUPPORT. GLOBAL VISION 2000 WILL FOCUS ON THE EVOLUTION AND RESURRECTION OF THE DIVINE PERSONALITY HEREAFTER.



UNSC SERVING FIVE VETO HOLDERS
IDLE TO OPPRESSION ELSEWHERE - Erdogan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his address at the UN General Assembly says the UN Security Council in current form serves interests of countries with veto power while "standing idle to oppression in other parts of the world."

The UN Security Council currently serves the interests of its five permanent members holding veto rights, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday. The five members of the Council, the US, Russia, China, France and Britain are, "standing idle to the oppression in other parts of the world," Erdogan said in his address to the 73rd session of UN General Assembly.

The Turkish president has long advocated for reforming the structure of the Security Council, pushing the motto,

"The world is bigger than five."

TRT World's Ediz Tiyansan reports.

Erdogan said the UN has carried out work and achieved considerable successes over its 73-year history. "However, it is also a fact that over time the United Nations moved away from meeting the expectations of humanity for peace and welfare," he added. Erdogan said past "massacres" in Bosnia, Rwanda and Somalia, recent ones in Myanmar and ongoing ones in Palestine, have all taken place before the eyes of the Security Council. "Those who do not raise their voices against the oppression of the Palestinians, their efforts even to reduce assistance for them, are only increasing the courage of the oppressors," he added, referring to the recent US decision to cut aid to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees. Turkey will continue to stand with the "oppressed" Palestinians and will protect the historical and legal status of Jerusalem, Erdogan said.

Limiting the reform of the UN to the budget only will neither contribute to the solution of real problems nor make anybody happy, he said. The president added there is a need for increasing UN efficiency "which I find very important for the future of the world, on its fundamental areas of duty, which are security, development and social equality."

"When the assets of the wealthiest 62 people in the world amount to the assets of half of the world’s population of 3.6 billion people, this means there is a problem," Erdogan said. He called for establishing a new global system at the UN that will be the voice of implementer of humankind’s expectation for justice. 'More abundant, flexible support'. Erdogan said Turkey continues its efforts towards a fairer world while implementing a global humanitarian diplomacy. He recalled that Turkey hosts 4 million refugees, 3.5 million of which are Syrian, and provides them with services that are "incomparable" elsewhere in the world. The total amount Turkey has spent for Syrian refugees alone is at $32 billion. "However, so far, the external support we have received is $600 million from international organisations and €1.7 billion from the EU until now," Erdogan said.

Turkey's efforts within UN

Erdogan said Turkey has contributed substantially to the UN in regards to the Gulf crisis, people in Arakan – northern Rakhine State, Myanmar – racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia and also Syria. He said Turkey tries to make Syria a peaceful country again by means of support for Geneva and Astana talks that aim to find a peaceful solution to the Syrian crisis. "By clearing the Jarablus and Al Rai regions from Daesh, and Afrin region from PKK/PYD/YPG terrorist organisations, we have turned an area of 4,000 kilometres into a safe and peaceful place for millions of Syrians," Erdogan said.

He added Turkey has prevented "bloody assaults" by Bashar al Assad's regime against the de-escalation area in Idlib, having signed the Sochi deal with Russia. Hinting at US support for PYD/YPG, the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terror organisation, Erdogan said, "Those who equip terrorists with tens of thousands of trucks and thousands of cargo planes' load of arms for the sake of their tactical interests will most definitely feel sorrow in the future."

FETO 'exports terror to world'

Erdogan said all terrorist organisations do not obtain their power from their armed actions, rather some hide behind "glossy concepts" such as education, welfare and dialogue, and continue operations as NGOs or businesses. "Through the support of our people to our resolute struggle over the last five years, we have eliminated the majority of FETO [terrorist organisation] in our country. " FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen were behind the defeated coup in Turkey on July 15, 2016, which left 251 people dead and nearly 2,200 wounded. He said countries have heeded Turkey's warnings and learned from its lessons and are deciphering the organisation and expelling it from their lands.

However, some states, including the US and European countries, "have not understood the danger." "For instance, the amount of funds that the FETO terrorist organisation receives in 27 US states from the government budget solely by charter schools is $763 million," he added.
Erdogan said FETO leader Gulen "exports terror" to 160 countries from his residence in the US state of Pennsylvania and urged world nations to be watchful and take action against the terror group.

Turkey backs constructive dialogue

Erdogan said trade wars have harmed humanity in every period. "None of us can remain silent to the arbitrary cancellation of commercial agreements, the spreading prevalence of protectionism and the use of economic sanctions as weapons. "The negative effects of these twisted developments will eventually affect all countries," he added. The president called on countries to work together to prevent damage to the world trade regime as a result of such unilateral decisions. Erdogan also called for an institution within the UN for the youth.

"As Turkey, we propose establishing a UN Youth Organization as soon as possible and suggest Istanbul, one of the symbolic cities of world history, as its headquarters," he added. The president added there is a need for increasing UN efficiency "which I find very important for the future of the world, on its fundamental areas of duty, which are security, development and social equality."

"When the assets of the wealthiest 62 people in the world amount to the assets of half of the world’s population of 3.6 billion people, this means there is a problem," Erdogan said. He called for establishing a new global system at the UN that will be the voice of implementer of humankind’s expectation for justice.

IT IS CLEAR THAT FALSE FLAG TERROR EVENTS ARE BEING ORCHESTRATED AND COORDINATED CENTRALLY BY THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM. THE GLOBAL WAR OF TERROR ON ISLAM AND MUSLIMS NEEDS TO CREATE ISLAMOPHOBIA AS IT IS THE INSTRUMENT TO JUSTIFY AND ENGAGE IN AGGRESSION, VIOLENCE AND WAR AGAINST MUSLIMS AND ISLAM. NO WONDER THERE IS NOW A TREND OF GLOBAL ISLAMOPHOBIA BECOMING NORMALISED AS IT INVOLVES BEARING FALSE WITNESS TO DEMONISE AND DEFAME ISLAM AND MUSLIMS IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. HAQEEQAT TV- HAQEEQAT IS AN URDU WORD FOR REALITY. HAQEEQAT TV STATES THAT IT IS PRODUCING A FULL HOUR VIDEO BROADCAST ON THE SAME TOPIC WHICH WE LOOK FORWARD TO REVIEW. INDIAN HINDUISM BASED ISLAMOPHOBIA IS DEEPROOTED AND THE CURRENT MODI BJP PARTY BASED ON HINDUTVA IDEOLOGY NEEDS TO BE EXPOSED AS IT IS NO LESS THAN A DANGER TO WORLD PEACE. IT IS NOW OPENLY ALLIED TO THE ZIONIST ISRAELI ENTITY AND INVOLVED IN MULTIBILLION MILITARY INDUSTRIAL INTELLIGENCE DEALS. ALL TRUTH SEEKERS NEED TO DRAW THE POWER OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE TO EXPOSE WHAT CAN ONLY BE TERMED INDIAN HINDU FASCISM ON THE MARCH. THIS IS A STARTER.

Already Israel is bringing in the harvest at the United Nations:

Hosea 10:13-15
New King James Version (NKJV)
13
You have plowed wickedness;
You have reaped iniquity.
You have eaten the fruit of lies,
Because you trusted in your own way,
In the multitude of your mighty men.
14
Therefore tumult shall arise among your people,
And all your fortresses shall be plundered
As Shalman plundered Beth Arbel in the day of battle—
A mother dashed in pieces upon her children.
15
Thus it shall be done to you, O Bethel,
Because of your great wickedness.
At dawn the king of Israel
Shall be cut off utterly.

GLOBAL VISION 2000 ROUNDTABLE

ESCHATOLOGY IN THE 21ST CENTURY INTERFAITH & COMPARITIVE PERSPECTIVES

WORLD WAR 3 SCENARIOS AND THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY AND THE PLANET

Saturday 8 December 2018 AD/ 1440 AH London


SETTING THE SCENE

The crisis of global human civilisation has been encapsulated and documented by various global institutions, writers, thinkers to date from different religious and ideological perspectives. Given the convergence of a multiplicity of crises especially environmental, ecological, political and economic and the growing momentum towards a WW3 it was deemed essential to look over the horizon by stepping into the past and understand, clarify, contrast what the different faith and secular traditions had to say on the subject of eschatology.

The status of this topic is fragmented in officialdom and subject to different interpretations and sharp divisions at an intrafaith level. Yet the subject matter has always been there and holds a powerful hold on the imagination of billions globally. Also with the seemingly demise of secular ideologies such as capitalist and communist orientation there is a rise in end time apocalyptic movements from different traditions seeking solutions outwith conventional party politics and manifestoes. There is also evidence that the powers that be have been tapping into this and manipulating these tendencies for their own ends. In order to deal with this theme comprehensively there is a need for an interdisciplinary approach as it covers theology, religious history, current affairs, politics and economics. It deals with end time, global hope and salvation, heroes and villains, conflict and peace as well as understanding the Deep State, the Occult , NWO and the Age of propaganda and deceit.

Eschatology is defined as part of theology concerned with the final events of history, or the ultimate destiny of humanity. This concept is commonly referred to as the "end of the world" or "end time". The word arises from the Greek words meaning "last" and "the study of", first used in English around 1550. The Oxford English Dictionary defines eschatology as "The department of theological science concerned with ‘the four last things: death, judgment, heaven and hell’. In the context of mysticism, the phrase refers metaphorically to the end of ordinary reality and reunion with the Divine. In many religions it is taught as an existing future event prophesied in sacred texts or folklore. More broadly, eschatology may encompass related concepts such as the Messiah or Messianic Age, the end time, and the end of days.

History is often divided into "ages" (aeons), which are time periods each with certain commonalities. One age comes to an end and a new age or world to come, where different realities are present, begins. When such transitions from one age to another are the subject of eschatological discussion, the phrase, "end of the world", is replaced by "end of the age", "end of an era", or "end of life as we know it". Much apocalyptic fiction does not deal with the "end of time" but rather with the end of a certain period of time, the end of life as it is now, and the beginning of a new period of time. It is usually a crisis that brings an end to current reality and ushers in a new way of living, thinking, or being. This crisis may take the form of the intervention of a deity in history, a war, a change in the environment, or the reaching of a new level of consciousness. Most modern eschatology and apocalypticism, both religious and secular, involve the violent disruption or destruction of the world; whereas Abrahamic eschatologies view the end times as the consummation or perfection of God's creation of the world. In which the world began with God and is constantly headed toward God’s final goal for creation, which is the world to come. Eschatologies vary as to their degree of optimism or pessimism about the future. In some eschatologies, conditions are better for some and worse for others.

AIMS

Questions to be addressed-

What is the nature, sources and beliefs of eschatology in the eschaton of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and other traditions?

Are there any commonalities and what are the differences?

What are the implications of eschatology for Human civilisation and World Justice and Peace?

How is this impacting these communities of faith and secularism in terms of preparedness? In terms of agreement, consensus and strategic planning.

Is eschatology being manipulated in the Age of Deceit by the powers that be and how to redress this ?

Role of Jerusalem in eschaton


ETHOS

The conference is envisaged to be a means of bringing leading independent thinkers for discussion of problems to create a better understanding of the ideas, forces and trends affecting humanity. Through direct exchanges to clear up differences and misunderstandings
that might weaken peaceful human co-existence. Presentations will be given and all speakers are expected to participate in the event in order to create a mosaic of understanding.

There will be no strict rules of procedure governing the conference in order that a relaxed, atmosphere conducive to free and frank discussion is facilitated. In no sense is it a policymaking body. There is no voting and no attempt to reach or adopt resolutions. All individuals are invited in a personal capacity. An invitation only event for individuals who have a track record of research or advocacy on the principle of primus inter pares. The initial stage of this process will be on an interfaith and secularist traditions only event.
