For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

I love how #Canada is celebrating the #IslamicHeritageMonth and honoring the rich Muslim heritage and its contributions to the world.

For nearly 1,000 years - from the 8th to the 16th centuries - Islamic civilization underwent what is now known as the Islamic Golden Age.
This period of economic, intellectual & cultural development resulted in countless inventions & advancements which remain ubiquitous till today. We hear about inventions of Western scientists and researchers, but did you know we also owe a lot to Islamic civilization? #Muslim
In #IslamicHeritageMonth, community centers, libraries, & public institutions across #Canada have special screenings & books on display showcasing Muslim innovation across sciences, humanities, medicine, astronomy, & other disciplines.

Here are some of my favorite contributions:

#civilwar talk has ramped up ever since @poyus shined a light on reality of D-party divisiveness. Anons had no illusions long ago of the evil we face.
searching for #Never also brought up posts about @potus being insulated from #impeachment scams.

Something special today. I found some old notes on the different theological schools existent within Sunni #Islam. Since there's a lot of confusion on this matter, I'll share them with you guys. It's a very brief and very simplified description, so nothing complex really.
There are three main ways to approach the Islamic creed (ʿaqīda):
1) Through literalist textualism
2) Through the bāṭin (inner esoteric meanings)
3) Through speculative rationalism

It's important to note that these three ways mostly coexisted within the Islamic world.
The 1st is used by the school of al-athariyya (from #Arabic أثر - tradition/transmission). They approach the #Islamic creed through a literary reading of the relevatory texts, focusing on its ẓāhir (apparent) meaning. The texts are the sole authorities in matters of belief/law.

I'm no fan of the secular academical approach to #Islamic militantism. We all know who I'm talking about. There're some aspects to it that make it inherently flawed and inconsistent with the reality of #Islam. I'll comment on two of these flaws, but there are many more.
It enforces the idea of nationalism through the use of the term "foreign fighters". This term is foreign (pun intended) to the Islamic worldview, and is the result of the artificial, post-colonial borders dividing the #Muslim world into European-style nation-states.
In the Islamic worldview, a Muslim is symbolically related through membership of the shared religion to any other member of this socio-religious group we call the "ummah" (the Muslim Community). That's the inside group. Those that do not share the religion are obviously not.

One of the reasons of the retardation of Arabs and falling behind (and make them worthless in all worlds) is that they do not know a thing called (neutral evaluation) or (neutral description)
because Arabs, in general, exaggerate when they love and when they hate and they don’t know any moderation.
#Imam_Ali for he was the first Arab man to diagnose this dangerous disease of Arab nation by saying: Love your beloved one wisely as he might be your enemy one day.. and hate your enemy wisely as he might be your friend one day.

What a wonderful wisdom quote.

Journalist and peace campaigner #JohnPilger says there was “not a shred of evidence” to suggest #Iran was responsible and nobody should trust the #Trump administration.

Mr #Pompeo, without presenting evidence to support his claim, said his allegations were “based on intelligence
, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation” and more.

President Donald #Trump repeated the claims today during an interview with Fox News, alleging that a video proves Tehran’s guilt.

The video is said to show an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
boat approaching one of the tankers and removing an unexploded mine from its hull. But the ship’s Japanese owner contradicted the #US interpretation yesterday, saying footage showed something flying at the boat above the water line #Trump promised the US won’t “take it lightly.”

Like announced, I'll start a thread on the symbolism of the (in)famous black & white banner in #Islam. This comprehensive thread will explore its historical origins and cover a list of its contemporary users from a neutral #academic point of view. Not for the faint of heart. 😄
As a political leader & head of a growing religious community, the #prophet Muḥammad used to fly a banner (liwāʾ) and a flag (rāya). The difference? According to the #dictionary, a banner is "a long piece of cloth" while a flag is "a piece of cloth that represents a group."
The Companion Ibn al-ʿArabī was quoted in Fatḥ al-Bārī (6/147) as saying: "A banner is what is tied to the side of a spear to rally around, while a flag is that which is planted and left to be waved by the wind."

Every Iranian (regime) leader including @HassanRouhani & @JZarif has accepted the fundamental nature of this regime. Therefore, in our view, there is no logic behind the moderate/hardliner distinctions

1. One of the #Illuminati’s founding members, #AlbertPike, outlines his plan for #3WorldWars to bring about the consummation of all things. libertyforlife.com/nwo/albert_pik… ...
2. The first 2 have played out exactly as he predicted. The third is supposed to be a war between the monotheistic religions, particularly #Christianity and #Judaism against #Islam.
3. I suspect the #NotreDame cathedral fire was the signal for a wave of #IslamicTerrorism to start, and for the news to start covering it. Were they covering this?: thegatewaypundit.com/2019/04/875-ca…

Terrible events in #SriLanka. This is targeted killings.

We can certainly rule out #LTTE hand in this (whatever that's left) as it specifically targeted the Catholic churches and foreigners.

This looks like a hand of the Islamic outfits.

#SrilankaBlast
#SriLanka has been peaceful for a decade now. Is this now a sign of the entry of radical islamic outfits !?

Usually they do indulge in large scale attacks to announce themselves...

Hope not.

If it is indeed #Islamic terror, Srilanka must weed them out NOW.
Specific intelligence inputs received but not acted upon.

Coastal areas attacked.

Hotels hosting foreigners targeted.

Reminds me of 26/11 #Mumbai attacks.

Typical terror signatures should not be ignored.

Thread 1/21:

#NotreDame is famed as the grandest Gothic architectural example.

Embodiment of Catholicism and the Crusades, did you know it stems from the Arab world, specifically #Islamic?

It’s an interesting story that goes back to 7th c Jerusalem.
In 621 Prophet Muhammad was said to have flown from Mecca to Jerusalem to heaven and back in 1 night.

One of the most pivotal events in Islam, Al Isra' wal Miraj (Night Journey & Ascension to Heaven) is observed on the 27th of the 7th month (Islamic calendar).
To mark the spot, the 2nd Caliph (Omar) built a small mosque on the Ḥaram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary) aka Temple Mount, 7th c. It’s the 3rd holiest site in Islam.

5th Caliph Abdul Malak then built the Dome of the Rock 688–691, a shrine also on the Haram al-Sharif.

Alexandria, what if all of the #Liberal #Socialist #Communist #Antifa women who r proponents of "#Sharia" #Islam #Burka #Hijab were to line up in accordance w/ #Islamic precepts to have their genitalia trimmed in2 a likeness of a topiary exhibition?

R u a Christian?
(2) Alexandria, the #Islam which they are importing is not of a Pre-Medina peaceful (mental) jihad - its ramifications have political consequences and part of the (non-internal but externalized) jihad is to force women into submission ....
(3) I would love to see u sit down with .@LoomerFanClub #LauraLoomer

Alexandria, you have the power to be an agent of change - or a great failure.

#Soros handlers can no longer guarantee the future.

Educate yourself.

Sit down with the "opposition" like an adult.

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

These Moroccan coins feature the so-called Seal of Solomon, often depicted as a hexagram, similar to the Star of David. The coins are dated respectively 1271 A.H. (1855) and 1290 A.H. (1873/4), minted by king 'Abd al-Raḥmān and his successor, Muḥammad IV of #Morocco.
The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to the Abrahamic king/prophet Solomon. It is said that Solomon used this ring to control the spirits and animals. The design as a hexagram is often depicted on medieval #Islamic banners, coins, drinking-cups or in mosques.
According to the Catalan Atlas (1375), the two Anatolian beyliks of respectively Karaman and Candar featured a Seal of Solomon on their flags. The symbol was popular among the Turkish beyliks, and was later used by the #Ottomans in their mosque decorations.

#Muslims r one of the most financially excluded citizens in #Ethiopia & their primarily reason is #Riba. But I wonder how & where the data for such reports are collected? "Financial inclusion in Ethiopia: 10 takeaways from the latest Findex" tinyurl.com/ydhmd738 via @WorldBank
Citizens who identify themselves as #Muslims account for 34% of the #Ethiopia'n population (CSA, 2007). This large segment of the society was demanding Shari'ah Compliant #finance for long time. Banks first responded by introducing 0% interest A/C #financialinclusion @WorldBank
Banks attracted millions of customers and mobilized billions of Birr in deposits. Sadly, customers were unaware that these deposits are not #ShariahCompliant and they were subjected to successive devaluations which has impacted them a lot. #financialinclusion #Ethiopia @WorldBank

One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP
globalnews.ca/news/4373959/o…
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
