Bashar is Solely Responsible For Syrian Bloodshed

by Ghassan Karam

It is always lamentable when killings become a common everyday occurrence and in particular when many of the victims are innocent civilians, children women, and old people. It is especially chilling when death and destruction becomes a daily affair by the forces that were meant to protect the population against foreign enemies and to guard their rights and privileges. It is especially disheartening when “evil” is rationalized as essential since that transforms a shameful and ignominious act into a trite one. That is the danger of allowing murder, and oppression to metamorphose into a sterilized, common and hackneyed accounting of those killed every day in cold blood by a ruthless dictatorship whose sole interest is to maintain its ability to oppress, exploit and abuse.

Taking away life of civilians of all ages, including children, by their own government just because they dared protest against tyranny is always wrong. Obviously, deontological philosophy will never permit such egregious acts since it is based on a profound understanding of our moral and ethical obligations to each other. But neither would consequentialism, its opposite, approve of murderous acts that would not prevent greater numbers of people to be killed in the future.

The irony of the daily horrendous events of loss of life in Syria is that the tragic loss of life is being used by those that are essentially responsible for it as an excuse and a rationale for them to continue their senseless spilling of innocent blood by ordering heavy artillery and tanks to level neighbourhoods that dared demonstrate for democracy and personal rights. It is paradoxical when the oppressors who had over forty years to adopt some reforms and let the sunshine into the dark and rotten dungeons that they have built start portraying themselves as reformers and as democrats. The foreign minister of this rotten regime, Walid Al Moualem, even declared that the Syrian Ba’ath gang is ready to teach the world a lesson in democracy. He has no shame, neither do his fellow conspirators. I wonder whether Mr. Al Moualem even knows what is the meaning of democracy, citizenship, human rights, diversity, personal responsibility… Obviously his Don; Bashar Assad does not, as it was made amply clear in his interview with Danish TV where he said that he implied that he is a dictator who knows best what is good for the Syrian people, their personal preferences be damned. It was also laughable when he told ABC TV , just a few months ago, that he was not in control of what goes on in Syria and so he must not be held accountable for the approximately 6000 lost lives, tens of thousands of prisoners, many city quarters across Syria demolished or an economy that is about to implode.

It is not uncommon for individuals to have a distorted vision of reality but when the preservation of such a vision  results in the deaths of thousands and the destruction of dreams then that paranoia and delusion cross a redline. The acts of the last year have made it amply clear that those in control of the Syrian government are driven purely by personal ambition to stay in power and to exercise their tyranny and oppression. Syria as a country that belongs to 22 million people is an alien idea to them since the country is a fiefdom for the Assads and their clan, a mentality based in a pure vision of personality cult worship and a party that is all knowing.

Is there a place for such tyranny and repression or do the citizens have the right and the moral obligation to put an end to a half a century of exploitation and abuse? It has been long in coming but finally the Syrian brothers have awoken from their slumber and have taken a stand for what is right and just. It is the Ba’ath and Bashar that have tried to exploit the situation over the past year in order to distract the revolutionaries from demanding what is rightfully theirs; the ability to decide their own destiny. Bashar could have avoided all this bloodshed had he declared his intension to hold free elections and to introduce meaningful reforms over a year ago. He chose not to do so only because he did not believe that the Syrian masses deserve to be treated with dignity. Let him reap what he has sown.

    I have found some similarities from the prophesy of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) regarding the Syrian situation.No one is oblige to believe it but it is worth reading to find out some information. 

    Abu Hurayrah has narrated that the Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him)  said:
     “A man will emerge from the depths of Damascus. He will be called Sufyani. Most of those who follow him will be from the tribe of Kalb. He will kill by ripping the stomachs of women and even kill the children. A man from my family will appear in the Haram, the news of his advent will reach the Sufyani and he will send to him one of his armies. He (referring to the Mahdi) will defeat them. They will then travel with whoever remains until they come to a desert and they will be swallowed. None will be saved except the one who had informed the others about them”. (Mustadrak Al-Hakim)

    Hadhrat Umme Salmah narrates that Rasulullah Mohhammud(peace be upon him)said:…

    “After the death of a Ruler there will be some dispute between the people. At that time a citizen of Madina will flee and go to Makkah. While in Makkah, certain people will approach him between Hajrul Aswad and Maqaame Ibraheem, and forcefully pledge their allegiance to him. Thereafter a huge army will proceed from Syria to attack him but when they will be at Baida (which is between Makkah and Madina) they will be swallowed into the ground. On seeing this, the Abdaals of Shaam(Greater Syria) as well as large numbers of people from Iraq will come to him and pledge their allegiance to him. Then a person from the Quraish, whose uncle will be from the Bani Kalb tribe will send an army to attack him, only to be overpowered, by the will of Allah. This (defeated) army will be that of the Bani Kalb. Unfortunate indeed is he who does not receive a share from the booty of the Kalb. This person (Imam Mahdi) will distribute the spoils of war after the battle. He will lead the people according to the Sunnah and during his reign Islam will spread throughout the world. He will remain till seven years (since his emergence). He will pass away and the Muslims will perform his Janazah salaat.”(Abu Dawood)

    Some explanation with my understanding but Allah knows best. The hadith regarding the Sufyani specify that he is a tyrant who will spread corruption and mischief on the earth before the advent of Al Mahdi.The ruler whose death will trigger the dispute of succession possibly the 88 years old Saudi King Abdullah. When the first army sent against Imam Mahdi is swallowed up by the earth in al-Baida then Al Mahdi will take the Mujaheddin towards Ash-Shaam(Syria) and will fight against Sufyani there.The hadith mentions the sender of the second army against Al Mahdi as being related to the Banu Kalb maternally.This indicates that the Banu Kalb will also be rulers of some Arab state at the time of the emergence of Al Mahdi. The Sufyani’s forces will be defeated in Syria, and this will be known as the “Battle of Kalb” When Al Mahdi reaches Syria he will slay As-Sufyani under the tree, the branches of which grow in the direction of Lake Tiberias in Israel (Sea of Galilee) and he will kill Kalb.Syria would thus be liberated from the tyrannical rule of the Sufyani.

    The Banu Kalb (Arabic: بنو كلب‎) was one of the tribes of Arabia during Muhammad’s(peace be upon him) era. The Banu Kalb claimed descent from theYemenites. According to the hadith of the Islamic prophet Muhammad they will be among the first people to follow the Sufyani. The Banu Kalb tribe thought to exist by majority in North-west Syria especially in Homs and Qardaha.People of the Qardaha are said to be descent of Banu Kalb tribe. The minority Alawite sect are from the Kalb tribe The Sufyani will be followed, for the most part, by the tribe of Kalb.Please note that there are if we combine sevaral hadis we find Three Syfyani.The first Sufyani will be a tyrant too but let us concentrate on the second Sufyani here. The second Syfyani will be the Son of the first Sufyani right after the death of the first sufyani and during the time of second Sufyani the battle of Kalb will happen 

    VERY IMPORTANT EVENT:During the time of the Second Syfyani  a METEORITE/ASTEROID  will fall on Syria where Seventy thousand people will die and seventy thousand people will be deaf ,from several hadis we can find a date too. I have tried to calculated a date because I feel the hadis itself demand us to calculate a date when a meteorite will fall in Syria.”when Ramadan begins on a Friday night in that year, then when you have prayed Fajr(early morning prayer) on Friday in the middle of Ramadan” There are TWO Possible date. i.e. On Friday August 3, 2012 OR On Friday May 8, 2020. In the early morning after Fajar Prayer of Syrian time. Allah knows best.Most of the hadis regarding the Meteorite is located at  Nuaim bin Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan Hadith book. In the future I will post them inshallah but anyone can please google “Signs before Mahdi – Discovering Islam” to find out more.The whole events are very long and connected to many different event and is not possible to express in short but I really like to share this with other readers.

    Please note Al Mahdi is a Sunni Muslim and Shia Imam Mahdi is the 12th Imam hiding for the last 1200 years in a tunnel and will emerge at the end of time. Therefore these are two different personality.

      Now you sound like Nostradamus… Stories and verses that fit all type of scenarios… I’d rather listen to that Hayek charlatan. End of days preachers have been around for centuries and your mythical stories are not different. So according to your calculations if nothing happens on August 2012 then, and hopefully we survive the Mayan 12/21/2012 saga, we still have to wait until May 2020… Damn! I’m tired of waiting. I was already drained from the year 2000 mutanabbis. lol

        Which part of this hadis is mythical?  There will be an earth quake in Harasta (Syria) in the near future during this conflict.You dont have to wait , all you have to do is read and believe what ever you like. You can go through the science and read “Solar flare” which has happened on 23 January 2012 but the big one is around the corner and once that happen it will destroy the satellites(About 900 of them) and other communication system  , this is very real and I have found the solar flare thing in Hadis too and after I learn it from the saying of the prophet I start searching from the science source. If you go to youtube and type  “Meteorite or  Asteroid 2012”  or Michio Kaku , 1859 solarflare carington event etc you will find some prediction too from NASA and other sources.  I couldnt determine the exact date because I haven’t find all the hadis regarding the meteorite. But the time and location is there .Now if the narration is authentic then there is no doubt about it. This event will bring a lot of change in the middle east geographically. The tsunami or an earth quake wont tell you its coming.

          Nothing is going to happen… and the worst thing about it is that you still have to pay your bills at the end of the month… lol

        if nothing is going to happen then why do you sound very much concerned? we all pay our bills , its you who would give up everything and go to jungle if you would believe such prophesy. For the Muslims , we will continue our daily life. Since it is there in the hadis , its good to take it out in the open and when it happens there will be few questions among the minds of many people.The Muslims all over the world do believe the Quran and the hadis but due to lack of religious practice many would doubt about such events. But in science this event is coming and it happened before but the scientist cant say exactly when and where it will fall.There are many videos on youtube on solar flare and meteorite.
        Those people are not Muslims and they get their information from scientific research. 1959 solar flare destroyed the telegraph system in Europe.Few days before many air plane were redirected their flight path due to the solar flare. You seems completely ignorant and the best you can do is laugh it off out of ignorance.  So in which category  do you fall? 

        • Hannibal

          I fall, like you, in the realm of myth… Hmmmmmm… So let me tell you a prophesy then. One night the skies will be all dark… WOW I cannot help myself 🙂 Of course they will… It is called eclipse of the moon. Here is another one, one day, day will turn into night… Of course it will… It is called eclipse of the sun… And one day, we will have solar flares… Of course we will… It has been happening all along. Now I have two questions for you that keep boggling my mind… and really 
          I am serious in here: Why is it that a simple sailor discovers the Americas in the late 1400s and the religious books (Yes all of them) NEVER mentioned their existence. I mean can you imagine if God had revealed their existence in 610 with the birth of Islam, probably Arabs would have invaded America. AWWWWW what a thought. I do not need a book to tell me shit happens… Earthquakes will happen, Tsunamis, volcano eruptions, plagues, and the best of all Nuclear Weapons out of the stupidity of the human mind specially under the identity of religion wiping one another. AH one more thing… I am not an atheist. It just happens that I believe religious books are fake. how else would you explain the flat Earth theory and the believes of religious scholars back then that at the edge of the Earth one can fall?

        In a rare hand-written book, dated around 300 years after the Hijra, in the Islamic Library “Kitab Khana” of Istanbul, there is a narration reported from Abu Huraira who said: ” The war at the end of time will be a World war and will come after two previous ones in which much will perish…In the Hijri year 1400 and count 20 or 30 years… the trustworthy Mahdi will appear, he will fight the whole World and both the Dhaalleen (The Misguided, meaning the Christians) and the Maghdoob Alayhim (Those who have deserved the wrath of God, meaning the Jews) will join against him with the hypocrites in the land of Isra and Miraj at Megiddo (Mageddon). The Queen of the World and deception, an adulteress called America, who will incite the world to deviation and infidelity, will come out against him…The Jews of the World at that time will have the upper hand and will rule the Holy Land and the holy city. And all nations will come to fight by sea and air, except those in the land of extreme cold and the land of extreme heat. And the Mahdi will see that all the World plots against him, but he will see that Allah’s plan is stronger than all, and he will see that the World belongs to Allah and to Him it will return, and that the World is but a tree that Allah wills him to rule from its roots to its branches…….and Allah will hit them (unbelievers) with a disastrous punishment and burn their land and seas and skies and the sky will rain down a harmful shower, the people of the Earth will curse the infidels, and Allah shall will the defeat of the unbelievers.” (Qalda bin Zayd bin Baraka’s Asma Masalik Li Ayyam Mahdi: Malik Li Kul id-Dunya Bi Amr Allah El-Malik)

          You are so delusional… I thought you moslems call your Christian brothers “ahl el kitaab” so which is it are they good or evil? Grow up already… You speak of the Christians as if they are some political power and THAT IS EXACTLY where the problem is. The Majority of Christians leave their religion at the church and go about their business doing whatever. Guys like you mix she3baan be ramadaan you inject your religion everywhere. The books of the Christians are clear: “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” (Jesus) but Islamists want to do everything according to a book written in the past. Even when they wipe their ass they do it a la Islam. The REAL reason why our world is so backward is because we live in the past. Look at your stupidity is so rampant that you and the Shiites are fighting over a problem that happened some 1500 years ago on who is supposed to be a khalifa. I mean how crazy is that? While the West looks at the future and the wellbeing of the next generations through education and infrastructure and science we and our children in the Middle East and everywhere else where religion dominates are eating crap and living in the dust. You think Al Saud are good people? They are moslems and the Saudi royals usurped the land and treat their fellow moslems like shit and their women like a property. They have so much money to alleviate all the sufferings of the Arab and Moslem world but their Islam is guiding them ela al siiratt el mostaqiim… Ya right… Look at the Arab Moslems how they treat the impoverished region of Darfur. If that is what Islam is then it is the work of a devil it is not of a God. 
          Close those folklore books… Clear your mind… Look inside of your heart… God dwells in it. Then go and look for a needy person and help them put food at the table. The door to heaven is THAT SIMPLE… This is how you defuse the evil of the warmongers by not feeding the evils of war with war. Jesus said: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”… YES IT IS POSSIBLE… You can love your God by loving your neighbor even if he or she is moslem, shiite, christian, jew, or a Buddhist. Then and ONLY then we can achieve Paradise on Earth and God will be pleased. To me God is loving… HE has no wrath no anger no hurt… His kingdom is one of peace. Warmongers are not from heaven but from hell.

        Saeed bin Al-Musayab said: “There will be a Fitna(Tribulation) in AshSham(Syria). Its beginning will be like a play of boys. Then, the affairs of people will not settle on anything and unity will not be achieved until a caller calls from Heaven: ‘Follow this person’, and a hand appears as a sign.”(Nuaim Ibn Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan)

        Huzaifa said that the Messenger of Allah(Peace be upon him)said : “At that point, a call will come from Heaven saying: ‘ O’ people, surely Allah forbids tyrants and their followers for you and (Allah) bestows leadership upon the best of the nation of Muhammad. Join him in Mecca — he is the Mahdi!’ ” (Nuaim Ibn Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan, Tabarani, and Abu Amru Uthman bin Saeed Ad-Dani’s Kitab Al-Sunan Al-Waredah fi Al-Fitan)

         How the Syrian revolution began? Lets see whether the statement of the hadis correspondence with the reality “Its beginning will be like a play of boys” this is from the common newspaper article on how the Syrian revolution begin….. 

        It was the small act of defiance that catapulted Syria to the frontline of the Arab revolution.And it came not from the organized opposition in Damascus or Aleppo or any other major Syrian city, but from the graffiti cans of school boys in a run-down border town half way to the desert.”As-Shaab / Yoreed / Eskaat el nizam!”: “The people / want / to topple the regime!”Here on March 6 the slogan of the revolutions in Cairo and Tunis, which the boys had seen played out on their TVs, came flying from their paint cans onto a wall and grain silo in Daraa, the ancient and increasingly arid farming town on Syria’s southern border with Jordan.The local secret police soon arrested 15 boys between the ages of 10 and 15, detaining them under the control of Gen. Atef Najeeb, a cousin of President Bashar al-Assad.In a gloomy interrogation room the children were beaten and bloodied, burned and brutally tortured by grown men working for a regime whose unchecked brutality appears increasingly to be sowing the seeds of its undoing. Thus the Syrian revolution began

      More interesting is the Nag Hammadi Scriptures – The Gnostic Gospels – (texts translated from Greek to Coptic) – early Christian thought/history from about 70AD to the 4th century burial of them in Northern Egypt (and other places) basically because the archbishop of Alexandria in 367 decided there should only be 27 books of the ‘New Testament’. Some of the monks didn’t agree with book-burning. 🙂
      Imagine if we truly had all the texts written since humans first could write?
      In much of the thoughts written – since Plato, at least – there is one theme that generally over-rides all other ‘laws’ given by God to Man. Knowledge is Godly. Ignorance is of the Devil.

        There are many scriptures and many of them have some truth in it. I am a sunni Muslim therefore I believe in Quran and the Hadis.We also take the truths in the old and new testament which agrees with the Quran and the Hadis. The Prophesy I have posted in from the Islamic source , Bible also have similar prophesy and it is called “Wormwood” prophesy which also talk about the meteorite fall. Since we have Quran and Hadis we dont need to read plato and socrates many of those so called philosopher were sodomites. For the Muslims the Quran and the hadis is sufficient but for more knowledge we will read all other books and extract the good thing in it and throw in to the garbage bin whichever teaching goes against Islam. Its your choice and free will to read and believe what ever you like.

          So I guess you agree with the archbishop that anything which doesn’t doesn’t quite fit the (in his time, advancing) philosophy should be trashed. Yet in discovering the historical thoughts of the human species, including what has been trashed, we expand our knowledge, and thus are more able to make the ‘wise’ choices. Burning or burying the texts – as well as hiding them from the people by ill-education – doesn’t lead to enlightenment.
          Indeed, you seem to have been allowed to explore. Would you disallow others that freedom?
          And by the way, sodomy is enjoyed in ALL societies by some … cutting heads off for it won’t change human nature. 🙂

          “We also take the truths in the old and new testament which agrees with the Quran and the Hadis.” I thought muslims believe that the bible has been “corrupted”. So how do you know what is truth and what is not? Or is it what suits you??  How can you say that the Bible agrees with the Quran and the Hadis? My understanding is the Bible was written before the Quran, the Hadis and even way before Islam was even thought about. So I would have to say that the Quran agrees with the Bible.

    I have found some similarities from the prophesy of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) regarding the Syrian situation.No one is oblige to believe it but it is worth reading to find out some information. 

    Abu Hurayrah has narrated that the Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him)  said:
     “A man will emerge from the depths of Damascus. He will be called Sufyani. Most of those who follow him will be from the tribe of Kalb. He will kill by ripping the stomachs of women and even kill the children. A man from my family will appear in the Haram, the news of his advent will reach the Sufyani and he will send to him one of his armies. He (referring to the Mahdi) will defeat them. They will then travel with whoever remains until they come to a desert and they will be swallowed. None will be saved except the one who had informed the others about them”. (Mustadrak Al-Hakim)Hadhrat Umme Salmah narrates that Rasulullah Mohhammud(peace be upon him)said:… “After the death of a Ruler there will be some dispute between the people. At that time a citizen of Madina will flee and go to Makkah. While in Makkah, certain people will approach him between Hajrul Aswad and Maqaame Ibraheem, and forcefully pledge their allegiance to him. Thereafter a huge army will proceed from Syria to attack him but when they will be at Baida (which is between Makkah and Madina) they will be swallowed into the ground. On seeing this, the Abdaals of Shaam(Greater Syria) as well as large numbers of people from Iraq will come to him and pledge their allegiance to him. Then a person from the Quraish, whose uncle will be from the Bani Kalb tribe will send an army to attack him, only to be overpowered, by the will of Allah. This (defeated) army will be that of the Bani Kalb. Unfortunate indeed is he who does not receive a share from the booty of the Kalb. This person (Imam Mahdi) will distribute the spoils of war after the battle. He will lead the people according to the Sunnat and during his reign Islam will spread throughout the world. He will remain till seven years (since his emergence). He will pass away and the Muslims will perform his Janazah salaat.”(Abu Dawood)Some explanation with my understanding but Allah knows best. The hadith regarding the Sufyani specify that he is a tyrant who will spread corruption and mischief on the earth before the advent of Al Mahdi.The ruler whose death will trigger the dispute of succession possibly the 88 years old Saudi King Abdullah. 
    When the first army sent against Imam Mahdi is swallowed up by the earth in al-Baida then Al Mahdi will take the Mujaheddin towards Ash-Shaam(Syria) and will fight the second army over there.The hadith mentions the sender of the second army against Al Mahdi as being related to the Banu Kalb maternally.This indicates that the Banu Kalb will also be rulers of some Arab state at the time of the emergence of Al Mahdi. The Sufyani’s forces will be defeated in Syria, and this will be known as the “Battle of Kalb” When Al Mahdi reaches Syria he will slay As-Sufyani under the tree, the branches of which grow in the direction of Lake Tiberias in Israel (Sea of Galilee) and he will kill Kalb.Syria would thus be liberated from the tyrannical rule of the Sufyani.
    “Hudhaybah asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, how is it permitted to kill them when they believe in the Oneness?’ The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, replied: “O Hudhayfah, they are at that time apostates, they claim that wine is permitted and do not pray.” The preceding excerpt of Hadiths were narrated by Hudhayfah and are found in the reference of Abu Nuaym, At-Tabarani, and Abu Amru Ad Dani. 
    The Banu Kalb (Arabic: بنو كلب‎) was one of the tribes of Arabia during Muhammad’s(peace be upon him) era. The Banu Kalb claimed descent from theYemenites. According to the hadith of the Islamic prophet Muhammad they will be among the first people to follow the Sufyani. The Banu Kalb tribe thought to exist by majority in North-west Syria especially in Homs and Qardaha.People of the Qardaha are said to be descent of Banu Kalb tribe. The minority Alawite sect are from the Kalb tribe The Sufyani will be followed, for the most part, by the tribe of Kalb.Please note that there are if we combine sevaral hadis we find Three Syfyani.The first Sufyani will be a tyrant too but let us concentrate on the second Sufyani here. The second Syfyani will be the Son of the first Sufyani right after the death of the first sufyani and during the time of second Sufyani the battle of Kalb will happen VERY IMPORTANT EVENT:During the time of the Second Syfyani  a METEORITE/ASTEROID  will fall on Syria where Seventy thousand people will die and seventy thousand people will be deaf ,from several hadis we can find a date too. I have tried to calculated a date because I feel the hadis itself demand us to calculate a date when a meteorite will fall in Syria.”when Ramadan begins on a Friday night in that year, then when you have prayed Fajr(early morning prayer) on Friday in the middle of Ramadan” There are TWO Possible date. i.e. On Friday August 3, 2012 OR On Friday May 8, 2020. In the early morning after Fajar Prayer of Syrian time. Allah knows best.Most of the hadis regarding the Meteorite is located at  Nuaim bin Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan Hadith book. In the future I will post them inshallah but anyone can please google “Signs before Mahdi – Discovering Islam” to find out more.The whole events are very long and connected to many different event and is not possible to express but I really like to share this with other readers.Please note Al Mahdi is a Sunni Muslim and Imam Mahdi is the 12th Imam hiding for the last 1200 years in a tunnel , therefore these are two different personality.

    • Now you sound like Nostradamus… Stories and verses that fit all type of scenarios… I’d rather listen to that Hayek charlatan. End of days preachers have been around for centuries and your mythical stories are not different. So according to your calculations if nothing happens on August 2012 then, and hopefully we survive the Mayan 12/21/2012 saga, we still have to wait until May 2020… Damn! I’m tired of waiting. I was already drained from the year 2000 mutanabbis. lol

        Which part of this hadis is mythical?  There will be an earth quake in Harasta (Syria) in the near future during this conflict.You dont have to wait , all you have to do is read and believe what ever you like. You can go through the science and read “Solar flare” which has happened on 23 January 2012 but the big one is around the corner and once that happen it will destroy the satellites(About 900 of them) and other communication system  , this is very real and I have found the solar flare thing in Hadis too and after I learn it from the saying of the prophet I start searching from the science source. If you go to youtube and type  “Meteorite or  Asteroid 2012”  or Michio Kaku , 1859 solarflare carington event etc you will find some prediction too from NASA and other sources.  I couldnt determine the exact date because I haven’t find all the hadis regarding the meteorite. But the time and location is there .Now if the narration is authentic then there is no doubt about it. This event will bring a lot of change in the middle east geographically. The tsunami or an earth quake wont tell you its coming.  

        • Nothing is going to happen… and the worst thing about it is that you still have to pay your bills at the end of the month… lol

        if nothing is going to happen then why do you sound very much concerned? we all pay our bills , its you who would give up everything and go to jungle if you would believe such prophesy. For the Muslims , we will continue our daily life. Since it is there in the hadis , its good to take it out in the open and when it happens there will be few questions among the minds of many people.The Muslims all over the world do believe the Quran and the hadis but due to lack of religious practice many would doubt about such events. But in science this event is coming and it happened before but the scientist cant say exactly when and where it will fall.There are many videos on youtube on solar flare and meteorite.
        Those people are not Muslims and they get their information from scientific research. 1959 solar flare destroyed the telegraph system in Europe.Few days before many air plane were redirected their flight path due to the solar flare. You seems completely ignorant and the best you can do is laugh it off out of ignorance.  So in which category  do you fall? 

        • I fall, like you, in the realm of myth… Hmmmmmm… So let me tell you a prophesy then. One night the skies will be all dark… WOW I cannot help myself 🙂 Of course they will… It is called eclipse of the moon. Here is another one, one day, day will turn into night… Of course it will… It is called eclipse of the sun… And one day, we will have solar flares… Of course we will… It has been happening all along. Now I have two questions for you that keep boggling my mind… and really 
          I am serious in here: Why is it that a simple sailor discovers the Americas in the late 1400s and the religious books (Yes all of them) NEVER mentioned their existence. I mean can you imagine if God had revealed their existence in 610 with the birth of Islam, probably Arabs would have invaded America. AWWWWW what a thought. I do not need a book to tell me shit happens… Earthquakes will happen, Tsunamis, volcano eruptions, plagues, and the best of all Nuclear Weapons out of the stupidity of the human mind specially under the identity of religion wiping one another. AH one more thing… I am not an atheist. It just happens that I believe religious books are fake. how else would you explain the flat Earth theory and the believes of religious scholars back then that at the edge of the Earth one can fall?

        من مخطوطات الكتابخانة في استنبول المخطوطة  من بعض المخطوطات الإسلامية الموجودة في دار الكتابخانة بتركيا تحت مسمى أو تصنيف (3664) تراث المدينة المنورة ) لعالم مدني كان يعيش في بالمدينة المنورة في القرن الثالث الهجري وهو كلدة بن زيد ابن بركة المدني)، بعنوان ( أسمى المسالك لأيام المهدي الملك لكل الدنيا بأمر الله المالك ).
        ومما جاء بالمخطوطة ((حرب آخر الزمان حرب كونية المرة الثالثة بعد اثنين كبيرين يموت فيهما خلق كثير ،الأولى يشعلها رجل كنيته السيد الكبير، وتنادي الدنيا باسم (هتلر)حرب الخليج الأولى((وحرب في بلد أصغر من عَجب الذنب ، يجمع أهل الدنيا لها ، كأنها أغنى بلد أولم عليها ألوالمون. وأمير فيها سَلّم رايته لزعيمة الشر الآتية من الشواطئ البعيدة الغربية بداية آخر الزمن فتجمع له صريخها من كل الدنيا ، وترد له عرش الملك ويخرب عراق في ملاحم بداية آخر الزمن. ويحارب أمير الذنب الصغير جيوش المهدي ، وحان خراب البلد مرة أخرى لان أميرها سر الفساد … المهدي يقتله ويعود الذنب إلى جسدهوفي عقد الهجرة بعد الألف وثلاثمائة واعقدوا عقودا يرى ملك الروم أن حرب الدنيا كلها يجب أن تكون ، فأراد الله له حربا. ولم يذهب طويل زمن، عقد وعقد فسلط رجلا من بلاد اسمها (جرمن) له اسم الهر ، أراد أن يملك الدنيا ويحارب الكل في بلاد ثلج وخير، فأمسى في غضب الله بعد سنوات نار أراده قتيلا سر الروش أو الروس)).
        عبد الناصر والساداتوفي عُقود الهجرة بعد الألف وثلاثمائة، عُد خمسا أو ستا يحكم مصر رجل يكنى (ناصر) يدعوه العرب (شجاع العرب) والله في حرب وحرب وما كان منصورا ، ويريد الله لمصر نصرا له حقا في أحب شهوره ، وهو له ، فأرضى مصر رب البيت والعرب بأسمر سادا ، أبوه أنور منه ، لكنه صالح لصوص المسجد الأقصى بالبلد الحزين.
        وفي عراق الشام رجل متجبر …… و…… سفياني ، في إحدى عينيه كسل قليل، واسمه من الصدام وهو صدام لمن عارضه، الدنيا جمعت له في كوت صغير دخلها وهو مدهون، ولا خير في السفياني إلا بالإسلام، وهو خير وشر، والويل لخائن المهدي الأمين.وفي عقود الهجرة الإلف وأربع مائة ، واعقد اثنين أو ثلاثا……. يخرج المهدي الأمين ، ويحارب كل الكون يجمعون له الضالون والمغضوب عليهم ،والذين مردوا على النفاق في بلاد الإسراء والمعراج عند جبل مجدون ، وتخرج له ملكة الدنيا والمكر زانية اسمها (أمريكا) تراود العالم يومئذ في الضلال والكفر ، ويهود العالم يومئذٍ في أعلى عليين يملكون كل القدس والمدينة المقدسة. وكل البلاد تأتي من البحر والجو إلا بلاد الثلج الرهيب وبلاد الحر الشديد ويرى المهدي ان كل الدنيا عليه بالمكر السيئ، ويرى الله أشد مكرا، ويرى أن كل كون الله له، إليه المرجع والمصير، وكل الدنيا شجرةٌ له أن يملكها فرعاً وجذرا (……) فيرميهم الله بأكرب رمي ويحرق عليهم الأرض والبحر والسماء وتمطر السماء مطر السوء، ويلعن أهل الأرض كل كفار الأرض، ويأذن الله بزوال كل الكفر )) 
        In a rare hand-written book, dated around 300 years after the Hijra, in the Islamic Library “Kitab Khana” of Istanbul, there is a narration reported from Abu Huraira who said: ” The war at the end of time will be a World war and will come after two previous ones in which much will perish…In the Hijri year 1400 and count 20 or 30 years… the trustworthy Mahdi will appear, he will fight the whole World and both the Dhaalleen (The Misguided, meaning the Christians) and the Maghdoob Alayhim (Those who have deserved the wrath of God, meaning the Jews) will join against him with the hypocrites in the land of Isra and Miraj at Megiddo (Mageddon). The Queen of the World and deception, an adulteress called America, who will incite the world to deviation and infidelity, will come out against him…The Jews of the World at that time will have the upper hand and will rule the Holy Land and the holy city. And all nations will come to fight by sea and air, except those in the land of extreme cold and the land of extreme heat. And the Mahdi will see that all the World plots against him, but he will see that Allah’s plan is stronger than all, and he will see that the World belongs to Allah and to Him it will return, and that the World is but a tree that Allah wills him to rule from its roots to its branches…….and Allah will hit them (unbelievers) with a disastrous punishment and burn their land and seas and skies and the sky will rain down a harmful shower, the people of the Earth will curse the infidels, and Allah shall will the defeat of the unbelievers.” (Qalda bin Zayd bin Baraka’s Asma Masalik Li Ayyam Mahdi: Malik Li Kul id-Dunya Bi Amr Allah El-Malik) 

        • You are so delusional… I thought you moslems call your Christian brothers “ahl el kitaab” so which is it are they good or evil? Grow up already… You speak of the Christians as if they are some political power and THAT IS EXACTLY where the problem is. The Majority of Christians leave their religion at the church and go about their business doing whatever. Guys like you mix she3baan be ramadaan you inject your religion everywhere. The books of the Christians are clear: “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” (Jesus) but Islamists want to do everything according to a book written in the past. Even when they wipe their ass they do it a la Islam. The REAL reason why our world is so backward is because we live in the past. Look at your stupidity is so rampant that you and the Shiites are fighting over a problem that happened some 1500 years ago on who is supposed to be a khalifa. I mean how crazy is that? While the West looks at the future and the wellbeing of the next generations through education and infrastructure and science we and our children in the Middle East and everywhere else where religion dominates are eating crap and living in the dust. You think Al Saud are good people? They are moslems and the Saudi royals usurped the land and treat their fellow moslems like shit and their women like a property. They have so much money to alleviate all the sufferings of the Arab and Moslem world but their Islam is guiding them ela al siiratt el mostaqiim… Ya right… Look at the Arab Moslems how they treat the impoverished region of Darfur. If that is what Islam is then it is the work of a devil it is not of a God. 
          Close those folklore books… Clear your mind… Look inside of your heart… God dwells in it. Then go and look for a needy person and help them put food at the table. The door to heaven is THAT SIMPLE… This is how you defuse the evil of the warmongers by not feeding the evils of war with war. Jesus said: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”… YES IT IS POSSIBLE… You can love your God by loving your neighbor even if he or she is moslem, shiite, christian, jew, or a Buddhist. Then and ONLY then we can achieve Paradise on Earth and God will be pleased. To me God is loving… HE has no wrath no anger no hurt… His kingdom is one of peace. Warmongers are not from heaven but from hell.

          Poor Italian Amerigo Vespucchi ….. he didn’t realize he was the living harbinger of the fate of the world … when others used his name to describe a whole continent unknown to the previously uneducated European masses.
           In hindsight, it sure doesn’t seem good to have been a cartographer who couldn’t read Arabic. Surely he would have applied for a name-change.

        Saeed bin Al-Musayab said: “There will be a Fitna(Tribulation) in AshSham(Syria). Its beginning will be like a play of boys. Then, the affairs of people will not settle on anything and unity will not be achieved until a caller calls from Heaven: ‘Follow this person’, and a hand appears as a sign.”(Nuaim Ibn Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan)

        Huzaifa said that the Messenger of Allah(Peace be upon him)said : “At that point, a call will come from Heaven saying: ‘ O’ people, surely Allah forbids tyrants and their followers for you and (Allah) bestows leadership upon the best of the nation of Muhammad. Join him in Mecca — he is the Mahdi!’ ” (Nuaim Ibn Hammad’s Kitab Al-Fitan, Tabarani, and Abu Amru Uthman bin Saeed Ad-Dani’s Kitab Al-Sunan Al-Waredah fi Al-Fitan)

         How the Syrian revolution began? Lets see whether the statement of the hadis correspondence with the reality “Its beginning will be like a play of boys” this is from the common newspaper article on how the Syrian revolution begin….. 

        It was the small act of defiance that catapulted Syria to the frontline of the Arab revolution.And it came not from the organized opposition in Damascus or Aleppo or any other major Syrian city, but from the graffiti cans of school boys in a run-down border town half way to the desert.”As-Shaab / Yoreed / Eskaat el nizam!”: “The people / want / to topple the regime!”Here on March 6 the slogan of the revolutions in Cairo and Tunis, which the boys had seen played out on their TVs, came flying from their paint cans onto a wall and grain silo in Daraa, the ancient and increasingly arid farming town on Syria’s southern border with Jordan.The local secret police soon arrested 15 boys between the ages of 10 and 15, detaining them under the control of Gen. Atef Najeeb, a cousin of President Bashar al-Assad.In a gloomy interrogation room the children were beaten and bloodied, burned and brutally tortured by grown men working for a regime whose unchecked brutality appears increasingly to be sowing the seeds of its undoing. Thus the Syrian revolution began

      More interesting is the Nag Hammadi Scriptures – The Gnostic Gospels – (texts translated from Greek to Coptic) – early Christian thought/history from about 70AD to the 4th century burial of them in Northern Egypt (and other places) basically because the archbishop of Alexandria in 367 decided there should only be 27 books of the ‘New Testament’. Some of the monks didn’t agree with book-burning. 🙂
      Imagine if we truly had all the texts written since humans first could write?
      In much of the thoughts written – since Plato, at least – there is one theme that generally over-rides all other ‘laws’ given by God to Man. Knowledge is Godly. Ignorance is of the Devil.

        There are many scriptures and many of them have some truth in it. I am a sunni Muslim therefore I believe in Quran and the Hadis.We also take the truths in the old and new testament which agrees with the Quran and the Hadis. The Prophesy I have posted in from the Islamic source , Bible also have similar prophesy and it is called “Wormwood” prophesy which also talk about the meteorite fall. Since we have Quran and Hadis we dont need to read plato and socrates many of those so called philosopher were sodomites. For the Muslims the Quran and the hadis is sufficient but for more knowledge we will read all other books and extract the good thing in it and throw in to the garbage bin whichever teaching goes against Islam. Its your choice and free will to read and believe what ever you like.

          So I guess you agree with the archbishop that anything which doesn’t doesn’t quite fit the (in his time, advancing) philosophy should be trashed. Yet in discovering the historical thoughts of the human species, including what has been trashed, we expand our knowledge, and thus are more able to make the ‘wise’ choices. Burning or burying the texts – as well as hiding them from the people by ill-education – doesn’t lead to enlightenment.
          Indeed, you seem to have been allowed to explore. Would you disallow others that freedom?

It is pathetic! ;;I agree that those who are in power have one goal and that is to cling to it!However,they must know that their tanks and force can kill people,but they will not kill  freedom;ideas!As Kennedy said, ¨ A man may die,nations may rise and fall,but an idea lives on!¨

                And what sort of a person would insist against all odds that his vision, imposed by ruthless power of the gun, is worth a bloodbath. Such a person does not deserve any respect or the chance to run for office in a free election. If it is true that the present regime has changed its mind about its monopoly over politics then why not hold an election? Why all the killings, the death and destruction?

    • 5thDrawer

      Ok Geo. I was bored too. 🙂 It takes Dab a week to put together a few unintelligible lines, and even if Leo has been taking some english lessons, he has the same theories locked in.
      I wait for the Turkish power-boat to tie up at Tripoli … might as well have a ‘dialogue’ … for a minute.  🙂

    “We also take the truths in the old and new testament which agrees with the Quran and the Hadis.” I thought muslims believe that the bible has been “corrupted”. So how do you know what is truth and what is not? Or is it what suits you??  How can you say that the Bible agrees with the Quran and the Hadis? My understanding is the Bible was written before the Quran, the Hadis and even way before Islam was even thought about. So I would have to say that the Quran agrees with the Bible.

      We take from the Bible whatever agrees with the Quran because the Old and new testament are also from the same Allah.The original bible is perished according to the Christian admission thats why there are sevaral version of Bible which contradicts with one another.If the Quran agrees with the bible then its a good news. There are many debate on this topic done by many Muslim and Christian scholar. If you want to know more then please watch Ahmed Deedat , Zakir Naik etc. These Muslims know more about Bible than those Bible scholar who came to debate with the Muslims.

    What I can see is two sides fighting and no peaceful protesters,  The Syrian Army is being divided obviously by Religion and outside interests, But the media does not let You see all those who are in favour of the present regime  

    But how this affect Lebanon?  After The Leader of the Lebanese Forces Samir Geagea received a letter from the Syrian Government recognizing the autonomy of Lebanon like a sovereign an autonomous country, Establishing borders and Embassy, Furthermore stating that Shabaa and the Villages around the Wassani River are Lebanese; Triggered an act of desperation from Israel to stop this peace between Lebanon and Syria,  This peace is not convenient for Israel since the hostilities that existed between Lebanon and Syria where used as a pretext by Israel to steal Lebanese land saying that is for the sake of Israely safety.But in fact having Israel close nobody can have peace of mind,  knowing how treacherous and vile are their intentions of stealing Lebanese territory and water to create illegal settlements in Shabaa for the Ethiopian Jews called falasha. And to sabotage any project for the Litany River and the proper irrigation in the South.What I can see here in this problem created in Syria is a lot of hypocrisy, I can see that if the Muslim Brotherhood financed by the US and the UK succeed,  The minorities of Syria like Christians Alawites and Drouze will be doomed.But do they care?  No! The US and England only care about erasing every vestige of Christianity more hated by the Jews than any other religion,  as an example We can see in History that the first step that the Uk did to give Palestine to the Jews,  Was defiling all Christians like if they never existed in Palestine.The Created problem in Syria is no more that the continuation of a plan made by Chaim Weissman in WW1 stating  that the Arab Countries will be inhabited by the desires of the English Crown and not those desires of the inhabitants. Or like the Monroe Doctrine created in 1828 By the Americans who said that the Mexicans are inferior and do not deserve the Country, Adding that the absolute power in America is the US,  This was extended in 2001 by George Bush as an Absolute Power in the World. Sad is the Gut Greed carried as a decease by the Americans and English,  Torments those who fall in to their claws and torments those who where born evil.
