Iranian official blames Maliki and Assad for ISIS creation – 522 Comments

Comment by Nagy Michael: Finally a man who is telling the truth that many have suspected and the others ignored as silly notions that it was not true. not it could not be true. they forgot that Iran had many Al Qaada leadership before and during the planning of 9/11. It was Syria’s Assad who open the doors for them to flood Iraq to battle American soldiers and even commit suicide against Shiites places of worship. Iran didn’t mind because it wanted Maliki and whatever leadership of Iraq to be weak so it falls back to Iran. again after the american left, Iran instead of supporting the Iraqi Army to bolster its strength against ISIS. It chose Iraqi Militias because the latter will be its own puppets. Assad for a long time didn’t touch ISIS while he was barrel bombing FSA and Syrian children.

Comment by Maborlz Ez-Hari: In reality, Hamas is providing the isrealis with justifications to the crimes they are committing. Dont get offended when people knock Hamas. Its hamas’ responsibility to ensure its people are safe, attacking the rabid dog with now where to run is sheer lunacy, and trusting Hamas after what they have inflicted on their own people is equally as abhorrent as trusting the rabid dog which is isreal. Get this simple fact into your simple skull you flea brain.

hezbollah flag  assadHezbollah Is NOT “Resistance” – 341 Comments

Comment by Andre: WOW, some people are drunk on the HA resistance Kool-Aid! A resistance fights all foreign occupying forces, including the Syrian occupation of Lebanon. HA is NOT a Lebanese resistance, it is an Iranian and Syrian tool that was marketed as such – and people bought it! This group is only concerned with its militia interests and not Lebanon’s. It serves its masters in Iran and Syria, Lebanon is merely a stage for HA. It was a joke then, when HA declared victory after getting pummeled by Israel in 2006 (and destroyed Lebanon), and they are still a joke today – to hide behind the “resistance” brand.

US Muslims accuse some officials of stoking fear – 319 Comments

Comment by Sweetvirgo: While I understand these terrorist groups don’t speak for all Muslims, I believe muslims should speak out more. I know some clerics and other muslim politicians have spoken out and are outraged against these thugs but where are the protests?? There should be more and more muslims speaking out against what is happening. Delcare that these terrorists groups don’t define what a true muslim really is.

assad has the support of syrian  cartoonAssad regime committed war crimes, Photos – 319 Comments

Comment by Reasonableman: Members of Iran’s feared Basij militia forcibly marry female virgin prisoners the night before scheduled executions, raping their new “wives” and making it religiously acceptable to execute them, a self-professed member of the paramilitary group said.The anonymous militiaman told the Jerusalem Post that at age 18 he was “given the ‘honor’ to temporarily marry young girls before they were sentenced to death.”In the Islamic Republic of Iran it is illegal to execute a woman if she is a virgin, the former guard told the newspaper. So the government arranges “wedding” ceremonies to be conducted the night before executions, and prisoners are forced to have sexual intercourse with a guard.Raped by her new “husband,” a female prisoner is now fit to be put to death.
