“Cheney Gives The Orders, Not Obama!” US Official Rages At Kremlin

March 9, 2015

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers


A shocking report published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) today states that the Kremlin was “stunned” yesterday after Minister Sergey Lavrovendured a nearly one-hour tirade from US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland [photo top left] who, among other claims, “raged” that former Vice President  Richard “Dick” Cheney was in charge of the United States, not President Barack Obama.  
 
According to this report, a “highly agitated” Secretary Nuland contacted Minister Lavrov yesterday demanding that Russia immediately order Iran to return toUS custody the 4 CIA agents arrested and detained for directing ISIS terror forces in Iraq.

Secretary Nuland, also, this report continues, “bluntly warned” Minister Lavrov that should Moscow ever again provide to France, or any other NATO nation, superior “electronic-technology”, and for the Russian air force to continue disabling US warships, she would further order the American military to “aggressively respond”.

Most astoundingly, though, of Secretary Nuland’s “rages”, this report says, was her reply to Minister Lavrov when asked by whose authority she was speaking, and to which she replied, “Cheney gives the orders here now, not Obama, and you assholes better get used to it!


Important to note about Secretary Nuland, this report notes, is that she has long been one of the top tier operatives in the Bush-Clinton Criminal Syndicate working first in the Clinton administration where she was chief of staff to US Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott before moving on to serve as deputy director for former Soviet Union affairs.


Upon President George W. Bush taking office in 2001, this report continues, Secretary Nuland served as the principal deputy foreign policy adviser to Vice President Cheney and then as US ambassador to NATO, and when President Barack Obama took office in 2009, she returned to the US State Department run by Hillary Clinton and still holds the title of Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.


To the “vulgar-criminal” undiplomatic language employed by Secretary Nuland during her tirade with Minister Lavrov, this report says, is “nothing new” as the Federal Security Services (FSB) had documented last year when they released her private telephonic exchange with the US ambassador to Ukraine in which while engineering the coup in that nation she stated [see below or HERE]: “OK. He's now gotten both Serry and [UN Secretary General] Ban Ki-moon to agree thatSerry could come in Monday or Tuesday. So that would be great, I think, to help glue this thing and to have the UN help glue it and, you know, Fuck the EU.” 


Equally as disturbing to Secretary Nuland’s destruction of Ukraine, which STRATFOR (aka The Shadow CIA) head George Friedman recently called “the most blatant coup in history”, this report further notes, has been her “coordinated actions” with her former lover and current NATO commander General Philip Breedlove whose continued lies about Russian involvement in this conflict has left Germany “stunned and led their government this past weekend to label his words as “dangerous propaganda”. 

What appeared to be most concerning to Secretary Nuland, however, MoFA experts in this report say, was Moscow allowing the French navy earlier last month to equip their nuclear attack submarine Saphir with one of Russia’s revolutionary electronic warfare systems weapons, and which allowed this submarine to sink an entire US navy carrier group, including the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, in war games conducted off the coast of Florida. 

To how greatly feared by Secretary Nuland, and her Bush-Clinton criminal masters, this new Russian weapons system is, this report says, can be read, in part, as related by top US defense experts who stated last year after its first use:




To if the American people themselves are aware of who is actually running their government this report doesn’t say; but with a shocking new report detailing how these people are 58 times more likely to die at the hands of their own police forces than terrorists, their media blacking out the fact that one of their top allies in Libya has now become the ISIS commander there, and an astounding 33% of them now being jobless, one can readily ask if these people even care anymore about anything.

Russia’s Remarkable Renaissance

09.03.2015 
Author: F. William Engdahl
First appeared:

kremlinSomething remarkable is taking place in Russia, and it’s quite different from what we might expect. Rather than feel humiliated and depressed Russia is undergoing what I would call a kind of renaissance, a rebirth as a nation. This despite or in fact because the West, led by the so-called neo-conservatives in Washington, is trying everything including war on her doorstep in Ukraine, to collapse the Russian economy, humiliate Putin and paint Russians generally as bad. In the process, Russia is discovering positive attributes about her culture, her people, her land that had long been forgotten or suppressed.

My first of many visits to Russia was more than twenty years ago, in May, 1994. I was invited by a Moscow economics think-tank to deliver critical remarks about the IMF. My impressions then were of a once-great people who were being humiliated to the last ounce of their life energy. Mafia gangsters sped along the wide boulevards of Moscow in sparkling new Mercedes 600 limousines with dark windows and without license plates. Lawlessness was the order of the day, from the US-backed Yeltsin Kremlin to the streets. “Harvard boys” like Jeffrey Sachs or Sweden’s Anders Aaslund or George Soros were swarming over the city figuring new ways to rape and pillage Russia under the logo “shock therapy” and “market-oriented reform” another word for “give us your crown jewels.”

The human toll of that trauma of the total collapse of life in Russia after November 1989 was staggering. I could see it in the eyes of everyday Russians on the streets of Moscow, taxi-drivers, mothers shopping, normal Russians.

Today, some two decades later, Russia is again confronted by a western enemy, NATO, that seeks to not just humiliate her, but to actually destroy her as a functioning state because Russia is uniquely able to throw a giant monkey wrench into plans of those western elites behind the wars in Ukraine, in Syria, Libya, Iraq and well beyond to Afghanistan, Africa and South America.

Rather than depression, in my recent visits to Russia in the past year as well as in numerous discussions with a variety of Russian acquaintances, I sense a new feeling of pride, of determination, a kind of rebirth of something long buried.

Sanctions Boomerang

Take the sanctions war that the Obama administration has forced Germany, France and other unwilling EU states to join. The US Treasury financial warfare unit has targeted the Ruble. The morally corrupt and Washington-influenced Wall Street credit rating agencies have downgraded Russian state debt to “junk” status. The Saudis, in cahoots with Washington, have caused a free-fall in oil prices. The chaos in Ukraine and EU sabotage of the Russian South Stream gas pipeline to the EU, all this should have brought a terrified Russia to her knees. It hasn’t.

As we have earlier detailed, Putin and an increasing number of influential Russian industrialists, some of the same who a few years ago would have fled to their posh London townhouses, have decided to stand and fight for the future of Russia as a sovereign state. Oops! That wasn’t supposed to happen in a world of globalization, of dissolution of the nation-state. National pride was supposed to be a relic like gold. Not in Russia today.

On the first anniversary of the blatant US coup in Kiev that installed a hand-picked regime of self-professed Neonazis, criminals, and an alleged Scientologist Prime Minister Andriy Yansenyuk, hand-picked by the US State Department, there was a demonstration in downtown Moscow on February 22. An estimated 35,000 to 50,000 people showed up—students, teachers, pensioners, even pro-Kremlin bikers. They protested not against Putin for causing the economic sanctions by his intransigence against Washington and EU demands. They protested the blatant US and EU intervention into Ukraine. They called the protest “Anti-Maidan.” It was organized by one of many spontaneous citizen reactions to the atrocities they see on their borders. Internet satirical political blogs are making fun of the ridiculous Jan Paski, until last week the fumbling US State Department Press Spokesperson.

Not even an evident False Flag attempt in the London Financial Times and Western controlled media to blame Putin for “creating the climate of paranoia that caused” Boris Nemtsov’s murder is being taken seriously. Western “tricks” don’t work in today’s Russia.

And look at US and EU sanctions. Rather than weakening Putin’s popularity, sanctions have caused previously apolitical ordinary Russians to rally around the president, who still enjoys popularity ratings over 80%. A recent survey by the independent Levada Center found 81 percent of Russians feel negatively about the United States, the highest figure since the early 1990s “shock therapy” Yeltsin era. And 71 percent feel negatively about the European Union.

The renaissance I detect is evident in more than protests or polls, however. The US-instigated war in Ukraine since March 2014 has caused a humanitarian catastrophe, one which the US-steered German and other western media have blocked out of their coverage. More than one million Ukrainian citizens, losing their homes or in fear of being destroyed in the insane US-instigated carnage that is sweeping across Ukraine, have sought asylum in Russia. They have been welcomed as brothers according to all reports. That is a human response that has untold resonances among ordinary Russians. Because of the wonders of YouTube and smart phone videos, Russians are fully aware of the truth of the US war in eastern Ukraine. Russians are becoming politically sensitive for the first time in years as they realize that some circles in the West simply want to destroy them because they resist becoming a vassal of a Washington gone berserk.

Rather than bow to the US Treasury’s Ruble currency war and the threat that Russian banks will be frozen out of the SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) international interbank clearing system, something likened to an act of war, on February 16, the Russian government announced that it had completed its own banking clearing network in which some 91 domestic credit institutions have been incorporated. The system allows Russian banks to communicate seamlessly through the Central Bank of Russia.

That is inside Russia among banks that otherwise were vulnerable even domestically to a SWIFT cut. Russia joined the Brussels-based private SWIFT system as the Berlin Wall crumbled in 1989. Today her banks are the second largest users of SWIFT. The new system is inside Russia. Necessary, but not sufficient, to protect against SWIFT cutoff. The next step in discussion is joint Russia-China interbank clearing independent of SWIFT and Washington. That is also coming.

The following day after Russia’s “SWIFT” alternative was announced as operational, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said China will build up its strategic partnership with Russia in finance, space and aircraft building and “raise trade cooperation to a new level.” He added that China plans to cooperate more with Russia in the financial area and in January Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said that payments in national currencies, de-dollarization, were being negotiated with China. China realizes that if Russia collapses, China is next. Failing empires try desperate measures to survive.

Russians also realize that their leaders are moving in unprecedented ways to build an alternative to what they see as a morally decadent and bankrupt American world. For most Russians the disastrous decade of poverty, chaos and deprivation of the Yeltsin era in the 1990’s was reminder enough what awaits should Russia’s leaders again prostitute themselves to American banks and corporations for takeover, Hillary Clinton’s infamous “reset” of US-Russian relations she attempted when Medvedev was President. Russians see what the US has done in neighboring Ukraine where even the Finance Minister, Natalia Jaresko, is an American, a former State Department person.

Russia and its leaders are hardly trembling behind Kremlin walls. They are forging the skeleton of a new international economic order that has the potential to transform the world from the present bankruptcy of the Dollar System. Moscow and Beijing recently announced, as I discussed in a previous posting, their project to create a joint alternative to the US credit rating monopoly of Moody’s, S&P and Fitch. President Putin’s travel agenda in the past year has been mind-boggling. Far from being the international paraiah Washington and Victoria Nuland hoped for, Russia is emerging as the land which has the courage to “just say No!” to Washington.

Russia’s president has been in Cyprus where possible basing for the Russian navy was discussed, in Egypt where General al-Sisi warmly welcomed the Russian leader and discussed significant economic and other joint cooperation. Late last year Russia and the BRICS states agreed to form a $100 billion infrastructure bank that makes the US-controlled World Bank irrelevant. The list grows virtually every day.

The special human side

For me, however, the most heartening feature of this Russian renaissance is in the generation which is today in their late thirties to early forties—young, highly intelligent and having experience of both the depravity of Soviet communist bureaucracy but as well of the hollow world of US-led so-called “free market capitalism.” I share some examples from the many Russians I have come to know in recent years.

What is unique in my mind about this generation is that they are the hybrid generation. The education they received in the schools and universities was still largely dominated by the classical Russian science. That classical Russian science, as I have verified from many discussion with Russian scientist friends over the years, was of a quality almost unknown in the pragmatic West. An American Physics professor from MIT who taught in Moscow universities in the early 1990s told me, “When a Russian science student enters first year university, he or she already has behind them 4 years of biology, 4 of chemistry, of physics, both integral and differential calculus, geometry…they are starting university study at a level comparable to an American post-doctoral student.”

They grew up in a Russia where it was common for young girls to learn classical ballet or dance, for all children to learn to play piano or learn a musical instrument, to do sports, to paint, as in classical Greek education of the time of Socrates or Germany in the 1800s. Those basics which were also there in American schools until the 1950s, were all but abandoned during the 1980s. American industry wanted docile “dumbed-down” workers who asked no questions.

Russian biology, Russian math, Russian physics, Russian astrophysics, Russian geophysics—all disciplines approached their subject with a quality that had long before disappeared from American science. I know, as I grew up during the late 1950’s during the “Sputnik Shock,” where we were told as high school pupils we had to work doubly hard to “catch up to the Russians.” There was a kernel of truth, but the difference was not lack of American students working hard. In those days we worked and studied pretty hard. It was the quality of Russian scientific education that was so superior.

Teaching of the sciences especially, in Russia or the Soviet Union, had been strongly influenced by the German education system of the 1800s, the so-called Humboldt Reforms of Alexander von Humboldt and others.

The strong ties in Russian education with classical 19th Century German culture and science went deep, going back to the time under Czar Alexander II who freed the serfs in 1861, following the example of his friend, Abraham Lincoln. The ties were deepened to German classical culture later under Czar Alexander II prior to the 1905 Russo-Japanese War when the brilliant Sergei Witte was Transport Minister, then Finance Minister and finally Prime Minister before western intrigues forced his resignation. Witte translated the works of the German national economist Friederich List, the brilliant opponent of England’s Adam Smith, into Russian. Before foreign and domestic intrigues manipulated the Czar into the disastrous Anglo-Russian Entente of 1907 against Germany a pact which made England’s war in 1914 possible, the Russian state recognized the German classical system as superior to British empiricism and reductionism.

Many times I have asked Russians of the 1980s generation why they came back to Russia to work after living in the USA. Always the reply more or less, “The US education was so boring, no challenge…the American students were so shallow, no idea of anything outside the United States…for all its problems, I decided to come home and help build a new Russia…”

Some personal examples illustrate what I have found: Irina went with her parents to Oregon in the early 1990s. Her father was a high-ranking military figure in the USSR. After the collapse he retired and wanted to get away from Russia, memories of wars, to live his last years peacefully in Oregon. His daughter grew up there, went to college there and ultimately realized she could be so much more herself back in Russia where today as a famous journalist covering US-instigated wars in Syria and elsewhere including Ukraine, she is making a courageous contribution to world peace.

Konstantin went to the USA to work as a young broadcast journalist, did a master’s degree in New York in film and decided to return to Russia where he is making valuable TV documentaries on dangers of GMO and other important themes. Anton stayed in Russia, went into scientific and business publishing and used his facility with IT to found his own publishing house. Dmitry who taught physics at a respected German university, returned to his home St Petersburg to become a professor and his wife also a physicist, translates and manages a Russian language internet site as well as translating into Russian several of my own books.

What all these Russian acquaintances, now in their late 30s or forties share is that they were born when the remnants of the old Soviet Russia were still very visible, for better and for worse, but grew to maturity after 1991. This generation has a sense of development, progress, of change in their lives that is now proving invaluable to shape Russia’s future. They are also, through their families and even early childhood, rooted in the old Russia, like Vladimir Putin, and realize the reality of both old and new.

Now because of the brazen open savagery of Washington policies against Russia, this generation is looking at what was valuable. They realize that the stultifying bureaucratic deadness of the Soviet Stalin heritage was deadly in the USSR years. And they realize they have a unique chance to shape a new, dynamic Russia of the 21st Century not based on the bankrupt model of the now-dying American Century of Henry Luce and FD Roosevelt.

This for me is the heart of an emerging renaissance of the spirit among Russians that gives me more than hope for the future. And, a final note, it has been policy among the so-called Gods of Money, the bankers of London and New York, since at least the assassination in 1881 of Czar Alexander II, to prevent a peaceful growing alliance between Germany and Russia. A prime aim of Victoria Nuland’s Ukraine war has been to rupture that growing Russo-German economic cooperation. A vital question for the future of Germany and of Europe will be whether Germany’s politicians continue to kneel to the throne of Obama or his successor or define their true interests in closer cooperation with the emerging Eurasian economic renaissance that is being shaped by President Putin’s Russia and by President Xi’s China.

Ironically, Washington’s and now de facto NATO’s “undeclared war” against Russia has sparked this remarkable renaissance of the Russian spirit. For the first time in many years Russians are starting to feel good about themselves and to feel they are good in a world of some very bad people. It may be the factor that saves our world from a one world dictatorship of the bankers and their military.

Ansarullah Will not Adhere to the Saudi ’House of Obedience’

Israa Al Fass

Saudi King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al SaudWithout doubt, the ‘Gulf’ decision to move the Yemeni talks from Sanaa to Riyadh was not made coincidentally. Riyadh is persistently continuing the confrontation reflected by its newspapers on a daily basis against what columnists call an ‘illegal coup’ in Sanaa.

Yemen’s outgoing President, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, in a letter sent to the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, after praising him at first, appealed to his brothers "in the GCC to continue their constructive role by holding a conference to be attended by all Yemeni political parties who wish to preserve the security and stability of Yemen, under the support of the Council, in Riyadh”.

As if it is a distribution of roles, the request of the outgoing President tuned to be Saudi royal instructions which were quickly welcomed by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) who announced that its secretariat will make all the necessary arrangements to hold a Yemeni dialogue conference in Riyadh; the capital which is accused by an outstanding group of Yemenis of fueling the crisis in their country.

What kind of dialogue would Riyadh host in light of its hard-line positions against the Ansarullah movement? Is it suitable for Riyadh to play such a role?

The Ansarullah (Supporters of Allah) movement, which is considered a hard number in the Yemeni political calculations, puts emphasis on its firm position i.e. refusing to participate in Riyadh’s “dialogue”. It is noteworthy that the Popular Forces Union Party, the General People’s Congress, the Baath Party, in addition to many of the components of the Revolutionary Committees, all line up to support the movement’s position.

Ansarullah’s spokesman Mohammad Abdul Salam explained, in an interview with Al-Manar website, that the movement’s position stems from its refusal to participate in any talks where the type, place, and time are not being specified by the Yemenis alone. He stressed that “the Yemenis are the only party to decide where the talks should take place, in order to be a truly national dialogue conference”.

Saudi analysts Saad Bin OmarOn the other hand, the Saudi political analyst and commentator, Saad bin Omar, stressed to Al-Manar website that the “dialogue conference”, which is planned to be held in Riyadh, will take place under the auspices of the "GCC and not that of Saudi Kingdom. He underlined that Yemen’s outgoing president has asked to move talks to Riyadh, merely because of its symbolism as a capital chosen to be the headquarters of the GCC.

However, Ansarullah’s spokesman disagrees with this standpoint on the grounds “that Hadi is a part of the talks and not a legitimate president of the country, and thus none of the parties are entitled to impose a new place for the dialogue on the others."
Abdul Salam added that “Riyadh is no longer an impartial actor in the current crisis in Yemen, yet it supports the Takfiri groups, al-Qaeda, and the criminal operatives. It also adopts a severe stance regarding the Yemeni Revolution”.

In fact, it is believed in Yemen that the positions adopted by Saudi Arabia, whether directly or on behalf of the GCC, come in response to Ansarullah’s explicit positions about the kingdom's role in complicating the political crisis in Yemen. The positions of Sayyed Abdulmalik al-Houthi in terms of the Saudi role in repeating the Libyan model in Yemen or in supporting the Takfiri groups, as well as when he proposes alternative solutions, are still having echoes in the royal palaces. The Saudis did not yet forget the footages of the recent visits of Yemeni delegations that roamed Moscow, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Egypt.

The Yemenis have breached a red line that has been enshrined by Saudi Arabia for long. Therefore, what should be done today is to take them back to the house of obedience. That is how Ansarullah justifies its latest position.

According to Abdul Salam, “the Saudi Arabia is still considering Yemen its subordinate state. That is why it is suffering hysteria today, for it is afraid that Yemen is liberating itself from the Saudi dominance”.

Abdul Salam reiterated his question: “With whom are the other parties going to talk in Riyadh, knowing that all of them adopt the same position!”

Yemen: Ansarulla supportersTurning a blind eye to the daily onslaught by the Saudi media on the popular committees in Yemen as well as on the movement, Omar, the Saudi writer, stated that those in charge of the affairs of “Riyadh’s dialogue conference” are aware that all the components of the Yemeni society that participated in Sanaa’s talks must be involved in the talks in Riyadh. Any differences with the Kingdom do not rule out the fact that the GCC called for the dialogue”.

“The GCC sent the invitation, and this means that no particular country shall have much more influence during the talks, and that no party shall show bias against other parties,” he said, adding that “Riyadh has been chosen just because it is the headquarters of the GCC”.

Yet, it seems that the Saudi justification does not convince the Yemenis. Adbul Salam believes that the call is pure Saudi one, despite the efforts to depict it as a Gulf collaborative call. He reveals that some Gulf States - such as Oman and Kuwait for example - do not agree today on what is proposed by the “neighboring” Saudi, clarifying that even if the GCC addressed the call, it is not authorized to decide the place of the talks paying no heed to the Yemenis, who are supposed to meet its demand. This is unacceptable”.

According to Abdul Salam, Ansarullah considers that speaking about moving the talks from Sanaa to Riyadh aims only at putting pressures on the course of the dialogue, which is still being hosted by the ‘Movenpick’ halls in Sanaa.

The group also admits that those pressures will be in vain as long as the Yemenis in Sanaa are taking care of their affairs normally, and as long as the war against the extremist groups and al-Qaeda operatives is still in progress. Moreover, it believes that the foreign illegitimate parties in Yemen are the only ones who are being negatively affected by the obstruction of the talks.

Last but not least, the only constant idea in Yemen so far, amid the accelerating variables, is the fact that there will be no joint participation in the so-called dialogue in Riyadh. However, Ansarullah’s spokesman concluded that “the movement will continue its revolutionary action, since it is a national demand. Other parties can go anywhere they want, but Ansarulah will keep going and will never retreat.”

Lebanese FM Says UAE to Deport 70 Lebanese

Lebanese FM Gebran BassilLebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil confirmed on Friday reports that the United Arab Emirates is to deport 70 Lebanese individuals.

“We have been informed by the Lebanese Embassy in Dubai that authorities decided to deport 70 Lebanese in the next 24 hours,” Bassil wrote in a Tweet.

Local media has said there were no clear reasons for the deportations, which include Lebanese from various sects. LBC television channel, however, said the majority of those scheduled to be deported are Shiites.

Prime Minister Tammam Salam told Al-Nahar newspaper Friday that he has launched contacts with relevant parties in an attempt to find a suitable solution to the issue.

Earlier Friday, the Foreign Ministry confirmed it is in touch with the Lebanese Consulate in Dubai and the northern Emirates.

"Nothing is official yet. The Lebanese Consul General there [Samir Nmeir] said he would send a written report to the Foreign Minister's Office when he gets an official confirmation," a Foreign Ministry source told The Daily Star.

Syria: Army Preparing to Take Control of Strategic Oil Wells in Homs Province
I have received assurances from both Wael and Monzer that a massive campaign to delouse all Eastern Homs has begun in earnest.  The target is now the largest gas field and oil well in Syria at Number 105.  With 106 nearby, it is expected that all ISIS cannibals will be out of Homs in the next few days. ISIS has not been able to make use of these wells and fields for months and it is expected they will withdraw without much protestation in order to reinforce at either Al-Raqqa or Mosul.  That’s the expectation.  It might not go that way and the army is taking no chances.  A report 69 rodents killed so far during Friday.

Canadian Imams In Anti-ISIS Fatwa: ISIS Was Created By Western Interests To Remove Syrian Government; Joining It Is A Mortal Sin

On March 11, 2015, the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, a Calgary-based body headed by Imam Syed Soharwardy, issued a ‘historic fatwa’ against joining the Islamic State (ISIS). The fatwa states that ISIS is a ‘khawarij’ group,[1] and that whoever joins it or encourages others to do so in any way is committing a grave sin that excludes him from the fold of Islam.
The fatwa, signed by several dozen imams from across Canada, explains that ISIS is actually a group of ‘strangers’ that was ‘created by the funding of Western countries to overthrow the Syrian regime,’ and that it was ‘planted in Muslim countries to serve anti-Islam interests by deceiving Muslims in the name of Islam.’ It adds that ‘ISIS and other terrorists are using the policies of the United States and other Western countries in the Middle East as an excuse to control Muslim sentiments and then use them for their own political and personal gain.’  
The authors of the fatwa clarify that they strongly condemn those policies of the Western countries, including Canada itself, which are ‘completely unjust, based upon Islamophobia, bias and intolerance towards Muslims.’ They also ‘condemn the highly destructive and hateful role of the media in intentionally promoting intolerance towards Islam and Muslims.’ However, they say, Muslims cannot counter anti-Islamic efforts by choosing the path of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Boko Haram, and other organizations of their ilk. This is because, even while countering anti-Islamic aggression, Muslims are utterly forbidden to commit many of the deeds that ISIS has committed, such as beheading enemies, Muslim or non-Muslim, or driving them from their homes; murdering Muslims, including religious scholars, who disagree with them; and destroying mosques and tombs. The fatwa also stresses that only governments are authorized to declare a war, and that the Islamic State does not have the status of an actual state or government.
Turning to the issue of Canada’s security, the authors emphasize that Canadian Muslims have a religious duty to protect this country against anyone who wishes to harm it. They note that Canada is home to over one million Muslims who enjoy complete freedom of worship, with over 1,000 mosques and over 700 Islamic schools across the country. Hence, any attack on Canada is an attack on the freedom of Canadian Muslims. The fatwa therefore states that ‘any person who inspires people to cause harm to Canada and Canadians must immediately be reported to the Police.’
The following are excerpts from the fatwa:[2]
“A Few Years Ago, ISIS/ISIL Was Created By The Funding Of Western Countries To Overthrow The Syrian Regime”
“[The] overwhelming majority of worldwide Islamic scholars have already individually declared ISIS/ISIL un-Islamic ‘outsiders’ (KHAWARIJ) group.  The attached Islamic edict (Fatwa) by the Canadian Muslim Imams and scholars is the first formal Fatwa in the world regarding ISIS/ISIL and its recruitment activities… This Fatwa has been issued in order to help Muslims especially youth to understand what Islamic laws and ethics stand for and how ISIS/ISIL is violating those laws and ethics. The consistent and constant misinterpretation and misuse of the verses of the Holy Qur’an and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by the ISIS/ISIL to control Muslim lands and people should be exposed and condemned.
“We hope this Fatwa will help Muslims and non-Muslims to understand what Islam requires from its followers. We also hope this Fatwa will help the Canadian government, Ministers and the Media not to link Islam, Muslims and Islamic terminologies e.g. Jihad with the violence and extremism caused by terrorists organizations like ISIS/ISIL.
We encourage other Muslim Imams and scholars to endorse this Fatwa OR issue their own fatwa in order to help Muslims not to be misguided by ISIS/ISIL…
“O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done. (49:6) When the Hypocrites come to thee, they say, ‘We bear witness that thou art indeed the Messenger of Allah.’ Yea, Allah knoweth that thou art indeed His Messenger, and Allah beareth witness that the Hypocrites are indeed liars. (63:1). There are several other verses in the holy Qur’an and there are several Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) clearly warning Muslims that there are and will be people apparently claiming to be Muslims but who, in fact, will be imposters who deceive Muslims in order to destroy them. Muslims must not trust such individuals or groups…
“No Muslim ever heard the name of ‘Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)’ OR ‘Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL)’ OR ‘Da’esh’ (داعش) OR the names of its leaders until few years ago. The sudden appearance of hitherto completely unknown persons, trying to take over the Muslim lands and the leadership of the Muslims in the Middle East, is very doubtful and suspicious. A few years ago, ISIS/ISIL was created by the funding of Western countries to overthrow the Syrian regime. These strangers cannot be trusted. Their claim to establish a ‘Caliphate’ (Khilafah Al-Islamiyah) is very suspicious, and cannot be trusted. The reasons are discussed later in this Fatwa…”
Like The Khawarij, ISIS Is Destroying The Muslim Ummah; It Was “Planted In Muslim Countries To Serve Anti-Islam Interests”
“During the first century of Islam a similar group emerged in Syria and Iraq. They were extremely violent people who murdered many members of the family and the companions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The SAHABAH and AHLUL BAIT (the Companions and the Family of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) identified and isolated that group and called them ‘the outsiders’ (KHAWARIJ). They did not accept them as a part of the Muslim community.
“The strategy that the Khawarij used to destroy the Ummah is precisely the same as that being used by the ISIS/ISIL and other terrorist organizations in current times. The Khawarij wanted to establish a ‘Caliphate’ (Khilafah) based upon their own political agenda. Today, ISIS/ISIL is using the same word, ‘Caliphate (Khilafah)’, to misguide and manipulate Muslims. ISIS and other terrorists are using the policies of the United States and other Western countries in the Middle East as an excuse to control Muslim sentiments and then use them for their own political and personal gain. In our opinion, these aforementioned terrorist organizations are planted in Muslim countries to serve anti-Islam interests by deceiving Muslims in the name of Islam.
“We, the undersigned Imams, strongly disagree and condemn those policies of the United States, Canada and other Western countries in the Middle East which are completely unjust, based upon Islamophobia, bias and intolerance towards Muslims. We also understand and condemn the highly destructive and hateful role of the media in intentionally promoting intolerance towards Islam and Muslims. However, in order to counter the anti-Islam and anti-Muslim efforts, a Muslim cannot choose the path of ISIS or other terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda, Taliban, Boko Haram, Al-Shabab, Al-Nusrah, Lashkar Taiba, Lashkar Jhangwi, etc.”
ISIS’s Actions Are Absolutely Forbidden In Islam And Cannot Be Justified Under Any Circumstances
“There is very clear guidance in the holy Qur’an and in the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) clearly guiding Muslims on how to handle anti-Islam and anti-Muslim aggression on the part of groups and governments.  Under no circumstances Islam allows the following. The following actions are un-Islamic and completely forbidden.
  1. Capturing opponents; Muslim OR non-Muslim civilians and beheading them.
  2. Killing Muslims who disagree with beliefs and actions of ISIS/ISIL.
  3. Destroying mosques.
  4. Demolishing the graves of Prophets (peace upon them), Aulia Allah (Saints) and ordinary people.
  5. Forcing out Muslims OR non-Muslims from their houses and making them refugees. There are now more than eight million refugees because of the atrocities of ISIS/ISIL.
  6. Murdering Islamic scholars who oppose ISIS/ISIL.
  7. Encouraging Muslim girls and facilitating their travel secretly to Syria and Iraq to fight for an organization like ISIS/ISIL.
  8. Burning enemy soldiers alive.
  9. Mutilating a human body alive or dead.
  10. Throwing enemy combatants or civilians from a height to kill them.
“ISIS/ISIL have committed all of the above violations in the most horrific and inhumane way.  These actions are not allowed under any circumstances in Islam. Such actions are absolutely HARAAM (forbidden and major sin) in Islam and cannot be justified under any circumstances.
ISIS’s Struggle Cannot Be Considered Jihad
“Nor can the struggle of ISIS/ISIL be considered ‘JIHAD’. The clear guidance of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) regarding armed struggle (war) is as follows. During a war (Jihad), a Muslim army cannot do the following. These are the Jihad ethics of Islam that no one has the authority to change. These are also the Sharia laws about Jihad that no one can change.
  1. Do not kill children, even if they belong to the enemy.
  2. Do not kill noncombatant men or women, even if they are from the ranks of the enemy.
  3. Do not kill elderly, sick or weak people, even if they are from the ranks of the enemy.
  4. Do not cut trees.
  5. Do not contaminate water.
  6. Do not destroy the places of worship of any religion.
  7. Do not force people against their will to convert to Islam.
“War (Jihad) cannot be declared by individuals or groups of people. Only an Islamic government with its authority on a state can declare war (Jihad) if the state is being attacked. (Note: ISIS/ISIL was not a government of any state. They were created by western interests in the region to benefit western interests by removing the Syrian government.).
“ISIS/ISIL has violated all of the above prohibitions of Islam. They have disobeyed the Qur’an and the guidance of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) therefore, their struggle cannot be an Islamic struggle and their war cannot be called ‘Jihad’. Rather, it is pure terrorism and HARAAM.  The behavior and the actions of ISIS/ISIL has consistently proven that they are NOT Muslims and they cannot be trusted by the Muslims…
“We, the undersigned Imams inform all Muslim youth, girls, boys and general public that:
  • Joining ISIS/ISIL and groups like ISIS/ISIL is HARAAM (forbidden) in Islam.
  • Any Muslim who joins these KHAWARIJ (ISIS/ISIL) groups actually disconnects and disassociates himself/herself from the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
  • Any Muslim who joins ISIS/ISIL OR similar groups disobeys Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
“And whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him), and transgresses His limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall have a disgraceful torment. (4:14)
  • Any Muslim who helps, facilitates travel, provides funds or encourages a Muslim to join ISIS/ISIL and groups like ISIS/ISIL commits HARAAM. Such a person will not only be punished by Allah for misguiding Muslims but will also be responsible for the crimes committed by the people he/she has motivated.
  • Any Muslim who helps, directly or indirectly, any organization, agency, group, individual or government which supports facilitates or motivates Muslim girls or boys to travel secretly OR without the consent of parents to join ISIS/ISIL or any other terrorist organization commits Haraam and will face the wrath of Allah in this world and in the next world. (No Muslim parents will ever give consent to join ISIS/ISIL knowing the un-Islamic nature of ISIS)
“Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. (3:110)
“Any Person Who Inspires People To Cause Harm To Canada And Canadians Must Immediately Be Reported To The Police”
“We strongly urge every Muslim, especially the youth, not to be influenced by the speeches, songs and the literature available on the Internet or on social media produced by the imposters pretending to be Muslims. This is a trap for young Muslims. They must visit their local mosques and discuss any questions or points of confusion with the Imam publicly. Any person who inspires people to cause harm to Canada and Canadians must immediately be reported to the Police. This is our Islamic duty, as Canada is a country where more than 1.1 million Muslims live, more than 1000 mosques have been built in every part of the country, more than 700 Islamic schools (madrasah) are educating Muslim children and adults, where large gatherings on Islam, Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are freely and publicly held, and where every day several non-Muslim ‘Canadians embrace Islam.  Muslims have complete freedom to practice Islam in Canada.
Therefore, any attack on Canada will be an attack on the freedom of Canadian Muslims. It is the duty of every Canadian Muslim to safeguard Canada. May Allah save Canada and the entire world from the evil ISIS/ISIL and other of wrong doers…”
