Beware the Shias are here! The Guardian blows the whistle on Iran’s macchiavelic plan

1395/10/27 | 23:02
SHAFAQNA – Rejoice oh good people of the West, the Guardian is turning whistle-blower extraordinaire … Assange, Snowden move over, there is a new monster in town and it spells like a Wahhabist nightmare … Beware the SHIAS are here! In one of the most riveting and insightful piece of honest journalism EVER to grace the pages of the Guardian, one eloquent Mr Martin Chulov exposed Shia Islam’s devilish agenda: that to repopulate Syria with its cohorts of Shia Muslims. I will give you a moment to grasp the gravity of the situation. Forget ...

How Saudi Arabia Became US’ Top Ally?

1395/10/18 | 23:02
Following collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s and Washington's feeling of relaxation from supervision of the Eastern Bloc's red lines in Europe, the US shifted obsession toward the West Asia region. In order to define new adversaries to keep the NATO standing, keep its military industries alive, dominate the main gas and oil sources of the world, and save its hegemony, the US needed West Asia. With this outlook for the region, the September 11, 2001 attacks presented Washington with proper excuses to intervene in its new region of focus. ...

EDITORIAL Disgraceful cruelty against children in Myanmar

1395/9/17 | 23:02
SHAFAQNA – Footage of a Rohingya Muslim child circulated on social media today, depicting harrowing and despicable cruelty towards a defenceless child … The words fail me to express my dismay. How can anyone or any religious construct justify such abominable behaviour by the hands of its clergy. THE VIDEO CAN BE VIEWED HERE SHAFAQNA HAS CHOSEN NOT TO CARRY THE VIDEO ON ITS WEBSITE. OUR GOAL IS NOT TO FEED HYSTERIA BUT TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF RELIGIOUS REPRESSION. While Buddhism may have reservations towards Islam – everyone is entitled ...

In disunity, Islam’s heritage has been claimed by fanaticism

1395/9/15 | 23:02
By Catherine Shakdam*  If the last prophet of Islam: Muhammad ibn Abdullah managed through his lifetime to overcome great many enemies and pitfalls … many were those who wished to silence his voice and disappear his message, it is towards the end that his greatest battle would be fought. I would personally argue that Islam’s deadliest of enemies were never those who wielded the sword, but rather those who worked to strip Islam’s message away from its concept and pervert truths into manipulations. While Islam was sent as a last reaffirmation ...

Fidel Castro Died: "One of the greatest benefits of the revolution is that even our prostitutes are college graduates."

1395/9/7 | 23:02
“Here is a conclusion I’ve come to after many years: among all the errors we may have committed, the greatest of them all was that we believed that someone … actually knew how to build socialism… Whenever they said. ‘That’s the formula,’ we thought they knew. Just as if someone is a physician.” – Castro in 2005. “One of the greatest benefits of the revolution is that even our prostitutes are college graduates.” – Castro to director Oliver Stone in 2003 documentary “Comandante.” “I began the revolution with 82 men. ...

At one point, while another gang member continues the flogging, ...

White, Muslim, American and Hijab-Strong

1395/8/25 | 23:02
SHAFAQNA – It’s funny; being light-skinned, blue-eyed and named “Danielle”, removing my hijab really could work as a plan to disguise my Muslim-ness. Without hijab, I would effortlessly move around unnoticed and without fear of discrimination. Yet, the thought hadn’t crossed my mind. I’m a Muslim. I won’t shun it or remove it. It is who I am, and just as people cannot remove their skin, or their noses or their heritage – Islam is intertwined with everything that I am and to remove it would be to discard a piece of myself. What ...

Islam And Democracy — Friends Not Foes

1395/8/11 | 23:02
SHAFAQNA – With so much at stake in this election season there has never been a more prudent time for Muslims to exercise their right to vote. But many question whether our votes matter, or whether Islam recognizes secular and democratic election processes? In the years since the horrific 9/11 attacks the political climate has become increasingly hostile towards Muslims.  With tens of millions spent to promote anti-Muslim sentiment, a significant portion of the American public has become suspicious of Muslims. It appears to have become ...
