China, Silk Road and spread of Islam

China held a two-day conference in Beijing to sell its trillion dollars mega international trade project, called the Silk Road or Belt and Road early this month. Head of states from 29 countries attended the conference which was boycotted by United States, European Union, India and Japan.

Chinese president Xi Jinping in his keynote speech assured the world leaders that China wants to bring countries in Asia, Europe and Africa closure through trade without internal political or military interference. He pledged US$124 billion toward the project.

Russian president Vladimir Putin and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan also addressed the conference.

Indian prime minister Narendra Modi criticized the Chinese plan on the basis that Beijing supports Pakistan’s claim on the Indian occupied Kashmir Valley. Ironically, leaders from India’s all neighbors, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Iran, Nepal and Bhutan attended the conference.

The Silk Roads (Silk Routes) initiative is nothing new. This vast expanse of intercultural trade routes traversed Eurasia from the Mediterranean all the way to Japan, crossing into India on the way. Textiles, spices and even religions were all exchanged along the Silk Roads starting around 1,000 B.C. and continuing for several millenniums. For much of this time, Islam was the dominant religion among Silk Roads traders coming from western Eurasia, and they brought with them their belief system and a culture rich in tradition and advancements to millions of people.

Muslim traders established a network of business spreading to several major foreign cities along the Silk Roads such as Xi’an, Samarkand, Aleppo, Mosul, and Merv.

Today the Hui, a Muslim Chinese minority numbering 5 million, are widely thought to be the descendants of Muslim merchants who settled in China at the end of their Silk Road journeys (watch video below).

Muslim traders introduced Islam to Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Korea, etc. via Silk Roads.

S.A revolutionary icon Uncle Ahmed Kathy laid to rest

One the most respected of all South Africa’s revolutionaries Ahmed Mohamed (Kathy) Kathrada was buried on March 29, 2017 in Johannesburg in accordance with Islamic traditions. He was 87.

Affectionately known as Uncle Kathy, he was a close friend of Nelson Mandela and Achmad Cassiem aka Little Mandela, the fellow Robben Island prisoners where he spent 26 years.

Kathrada was founder-president of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.

Former archbishop of Johannesburg Desmond Tutu paid glowing tributes to his former comrade Kathrada by calling him a great champion of no-racial justice.

His memorial was attended by hundreds of family members and admirers from Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Hindu communities who paid tribute to the veteran of the decades-long national liberation struggle that brought the ANC to power in 1994.

Born into an Muslim South Indian immigrant family on August 21, 1929 – Kathrada at age 12 played an instrumental role in forming coalitions among the oppressed national groups across the country during the 1940s and 1950s.

Kathrada was inspired by another South African freedom-fighter Dr. Yusuf Mohamed Dadoo. Dadoo, a medical practitioner, was an important figure in the Non-European United Front (NEUF) which initially opposed African and Indian involvement in the military services during the early phase of World War II.

In 1964, Kathrada along with Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Dennis Goldberg, Raymond Mhlaba, Elias Motsoaledi and Andrew Mlangeni were tried for treason and found guilty in an apartheid court. Although the defendants felt they would be hung, the ANC-SACP leaders were given life in prison without parole under hard labor conditions. Mandela, the last of the group to be released, served twenty seven and a half years in prison at Robben Island, Pollsmoor and at a residence in the Western Cape.

Khamenei prays for MalcolmX

xandking[1]On February 21, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatuallah Ali Khamenei began his address at the 6th International Conference on Palestine by asking the audience to recite Surah al-Fatiha in the memory of Malcolm X on the 52nd anniversary of his martyrdom (watch below).

In the US the martyrdom of Malcolm X, the great Afro-American human rights leader of the last century, was commemorated on Tuesday at a cultural center dedicated to him and his wife, Dr. Betty Shabazz. His daughters Ilyasah Shabazz and Malaak Shabazz represented the family at the Malcolm X Betty Shabazz Cultural and Educational Center in Washington Heights, where organizers chose to remember him not in mourning but in celebration of his legacy.

Malcolm X prophesized the current White racism and hatred toward Muslims and Islam under Donald Trump administration over 60 years ago. Though US government, Black Christians and the Jewish controlled media project Rev. Martin Luther King being the greatest American human rights leader of the same period of time – American Christian journalist and author Chris Hedges pointed out in 2015 that Malcolm X understood America’s racist culture far better than MLK.

Malcolm X, unlike Martin Luther King Jr., did not believe America had a conscience. For him there was no great tension between the lofty ideals of the nation—which he said were a sham—and the failure to deliver justice to blacks. He, perhaps better than King, understood the inner workings of empire. He had no hope that those who managed empire would ever get in touch with their better selves to build a country free of exploitation and injustice,” Chris Hedges wrote at Truthdig on February 1, 2015.

Malcolm X as a Black Muslim activist not only fought for the rights of Afro-Americans and Blacks all over the world but also raised voice in support of oppressed people in Palestine, and Kashmir. Contrary to that MLK collaborated with the Organized Jewry.

Malcolm’s break from the Nation of Islam in 1963 was the opening the FBI was looking for to not only undermine the NOI but also eliminate the charismatic Malcolm X. The US establishment viewed him as a threat. In America, any person regardless of color or race who exposes the true nature of the establishment is marked for elimination. Malcolm was beginning to have a profound impact on the thinking of people with his mesmerizing speeches. He could arouse people one moment and pacify them the next. This was a frightening prospect for the establishment and the FBI worked through the NOI to eliminate Malcolm,” said Khadijah Ali at Crescent International.

Elkader: US town named after a Muslim Saint

In 1846, the Christian Iowa farmers in Clayton County named a new town Elkader in honor of Algerian prince Abdel Kader el-Jazairy for saving 12,000 Maronite Christians from massacre during the 1860 Mount Lebanon Civil War (an uprising by Syrian Maronite Christian farmers against their Druze landowners) – an act for which US President Abraham Lincoln lauded him for his bravery and respect for Christian faith.

Even the Jew York Times eulogized the Algerian Emir as “one of the few great men of the century. The nobility of his character won him the admiration of the world.”

Syrian Maronite Church declared prince Abd el Kader el Jazairy as a Muslim Saint .

Elkader is the only American town named after an Arab hero. It has a total population of 1,500 with three churches – but no Muslim, Arab or a mosque.

Since 2008 Elkader has been reviving his legacy, thanks largely to the 9-year-old nonprofit group, Abdelkader Education Project (AEP).

Abd el-Kader led Muslim resistance against French colonists in the 1830s. He liberated two-third of Algeria occupied by the French Judeo-Christian settlers. He bought arms from Ottoman Turkey and England. The French army succeeded in defeating the Muslim resistance by 1848 and Abd el-Kader took refuge in Morocco. But Paris forced King of Morocco to extradite him. He was handed over to France on Napoleon III’s promise that he would be allowed to migrate to Syria or Egypt. But the good Catholic king abandoned his promise and put Abd el-Kader in jail where he suffered torture and religious humiliation for five year before Napoleon III released him on the condition never to interfere in the affairs of Algeria. Abd el-Kader, thus went to the Ottoman town of Bursa in October 1852. Following a severe earthquake in 1855, he left Bursa and settled in Damascus where he died on May 26, 1883. He was buried near the tomb of Sheikh Ibn Arabi. On July 5, 1966, his body was taken from this place with a great ceremony attended by Muslim and Christian religious leaders and Syrian president and cabinet ministers (watch a video below).

American Jewish historian Jan T. Gross (Princeton) said last year: “In the face of anti-Muslim sentiment and religious intolerance, AEP seeks to counter stereotypes about Islam as a religion of violence and the Muslim as terrorist and enemy of the West. The Emir’s life offers a perfect way to understand how religions can help to build bridges and preserve humanity even in wartime.”

American author John W. Kiser’s book, Commander of the Faithful: The Life and Times of Emir Abd el-Kader, says: “The students’ stereotypes about Muslims and Arabs have been challenged, and their minds opened to the diversity of the Muslim world,” he observes. As a role model, he says, Abd el-Kader is a unifierwhose probing intellect, ethical courage, compassion, depth of knowledge – impress all who learn about him.

In 1842, Emir Abd el-Kader established the Code for the Protection of Prisoners of War – based on Islamic Sharia’h. It was two decades before the Swiss millionaire and Christian Zionist Henri Dunant established the International Red Cross in 1863. Henri Dunant, a personal friend of Theodor Herzl, attended the first Zionist Conference at Basel in 1897.

In 1843 Marshal of the French empire, Nicolas Jean-de-Dieu Soult (d. 1851) declared that ‘Abd el-Kader as one of the three great men then living ; the two others were, Chechen Imam Shamil and Ottoman Gen.Muhammad Ali Pasha, the Viceroy of Egypt.

In 2012, Hollywood director Oliver Stone (Jewish) showed interest to make a movie on Emir Abd el-Kader with the notorious Islamophobe Jew actor George Clooney playing the Muslim Saint part. However, opposition from Algerian and Syrian cultural ministries killed the project.

Said Musa: Palestinian prime minister of Belize

belize_flag1South Americans being victims of the US imperialism for centuries (Cuba, Bolivia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Venezuela and Nicaragua) are more sympathetic toward Palestinian sufferings at the hands of Europe’s unwanted Jews.

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega government is hosting an international conference on Occupied Palestine in Managua on February 4, 2017. The UN sponsored conference would focus on strengthening ties between Palestinians living in central America and the occupied Palestine.

Belize, formerly known as British Honduras, will be represented by its former prime minister Said W. Mousa, a Palestinian whose father Hamid Musa immigrated to British Honduras from Ramallah (British occupied Palestine) in 1930. He married a native woman and started a small business. His son Said went to Britain to study law and later entered politics.

Said visited the occupied Palestine in 1965 for the first time to discover his Palestinian roots while studying law in London. Since he couldn’t speak Arabic, he took an Arab friend along on the trip.

Said was one of the authors of Belize’s Declaration of Independence. After Belize gained independence from Britain in 1981, he was appointed foreign minister. In 1998, he led the Popular Union Party to victory in national elections, and became the first Muslim prime minister of the tiny country.

Prime minister Said Musa appointed Assad Shoman, the only Palestinian Jew in Belize as his ambassador to London. Listen to Musa’s interview below.

British Jewish oligarch Lord Michael Ashcroft has sued financially-battled government of Belize for $50 million in US court after prime minister Dean Borrow refused to pay the Shylock.

Dean Borrow and his ruling United Democratic Party have very close links to the Zionist regime. Thanks to Christian majority Dean Borrow has succeeded in ignoring plight of Palestinians.

Belize is a 9,000 square mile Caribbean nation of 360,000 people – 70 % of whom are Christians. Belize have over 10,000 Arab Diaspora – but less than a dozen Palestinian families among them. Belize is also home to 3,000 European Jews.

The first mosque in Belize was built in 1997 – not by Arabs but the descendants of former African slaves who converted to Islam. The Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has visited Belize three times so far.

UN idiot: Al-Aqsa Mosque is Jewish

alt

Antonio Guterres, the newly installed United Nations secretary general and a Friend of Israel told Israel Radio on Friday that “it was completely clear that the Temple that the Romans destroyed in Jerusalem was a Jewish temple.”

This is no news to people who have studied the history of Temple Mount and Jewishness from some objective sources. The Zionist narrative of Temple Mount, just like Holy Holocaust is all based on fakes, frauds, and forgeries (watch video below).

The so-called Temple Mount (Solomon Palace or Haikale Sulemani) and part of Old City of Jerusalem were destroyed by Romans in 70 AD to crush the anti-Rome armed rebellion by the people of Judea, who were not Jewish. Majority of them belonged to Hebrew tribes also known as Bani Israel who were descendants of 12 sons of prophet Israel (Jacob). These people who lived in Arabian peninsula converted to Christianity and Islam with the passage of time. Over 90% of current world Jewry is not Israelites but Khazarian Turks.

Israeli historian Dr. Shlomo Sand, author of books The Invention of Jewish People’, ‘The Invention of the Land of Israel’, and ‘How I ceased to be a Jew’ has claimed that the word JEW was invented in late 18th century – most probably by Christian Zionists.

The photo above clearly shows that the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Dome of Rock are not built on top of the Temple Mount. And the so-called Wailing Wall under the Al-Aqsa Mosque is not the foundation wall of the Temple Mount – but of a Roman fortress.

In October 2016, UNESCO declared that Old City of Jerusalem (occupied East Jerusalem) had nothing to do with Judaism.

But don’t expect Netanyahu stop speaking through Antonio Guterres’ mouth in the future.

Mali: Victim of Western ‘humanitarian war’

mali-flag-481UN Security Council agreed yesterday with French request to put ‘crippling sanctions’ on Malian Islamic rebels allied to US-Israel created Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, Ansar al-Din, and ISIS, for hindering peace deal with the US-French installed government of president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

French Ambassador Francois Delattre, who holds this month’s presidency of the council, told the members that it was time to speed up implementation of the peace deal aimed at ending years of fighting in northern Mali and turn the page on the Islamist takeover of 2012.

US-based Jewish-controlled Human Rights Watch (HRW) with Zionist Jew Kenneth Roth as CEO – claimed on January 18, 2017 that “anti-government Islamist rebels are killing, rapping, and torturing civilians in north and central Mali. They’re imposing Islamic Shariah on Muslims.”

On March 23, 2012, the elected head of state in Mali Amadou Toumani was thrown out of power by a military coup lead by Captain Amadou Sanogo, who received military training in the Pentagon. Surprisingly, no senior military commander was involved in the coup. Later, he handed over power to Washington pick, Dioncounda Traore, an evangelical MP.

Interestingly, the leader of Ansar al-Din, the so-called Islamist terrorist group in northern Mali, was once a trusted partner of the German government and brokered the release of hostages in 2003, German Jewish Spiegel Online reported on January 20, 2013.

Christian Evangelic missionaries are very active in Mali which has 5% Christian minority created by the French colonialists.

Like other African nation, Mali is no stranger to Israeli Mossad terrorism. On November 20, 2015, Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako was attacked by two gunners shouting Allah Akbar (an Israeli trademark), killing 27 people right under the watch of French and the US special forces in Mali. After the incident, French-US intelligence admitted that the two gunners were under their watch for some time.

The US Africa Command (AFRICOM) head Marines Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser, a typical Islamophobe US military officer claims that the purpose of Washington’s military policy on the continent is to assist nation-states in their efforts to enhance the security capacity of various governments. AFRICOM identifies its purpose as working with African states in the so-called “War on Terrorism”.

Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser who commanded US-NATO forces in Afghanistan earlier, dropped the charges of ‘urination’ on Taliban dead fighters by his fellow Marines.

On April 18, 2012, John Hammer in an article posted at the Activist Post claimed that Western war on terror is in fact Israel’s proxy ‘War on Islam’.

Mali is the largest country in West Africa with a total population of 11 million – 90% of whom are Muslims. So why so-called “Islamist rebels” need to “impose” Shari’ah on Muslim?

Mali is target of France, US, and Israel for country’s huge uranium deposits.

Mali has no diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity.

Mali is home to the largest UN Peace-Keeping Force (13,000) in Africa to protect western interests in the country.

Benjamin Netanyahu met Malian president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on the sideline of Paris One Million March to condemn shooting at  Charlie Hebdo in January 2015. He told Keita that both Mali and Israel are victims of ‘Islamic terrorism’.

When Christian Europe was going through its Dark Age, Mali’s Timbuktu city was the center of Muslim Keita Dynasty which ruled a large part of western Africa for 400 years. Its 10th ruler, Mansa (Sultan) Musa I (1280-1337 CE) is considered the richest person on earth at that time. He built world’s largest education institution, University of Timbuktu (watch a video below). Its library had 500,000 reference books while Europe’s largest library in Vatican City had only 10,000 books.
