International War on Terror
With the actions the U.S. and its allies are taking internationally, it has become very obvious that the so-called “war on terror” is actually a war against Al-Islam. Muslim countries are being attacked under false pretense and for peacefully pursuing exploration of resources in creation that the Creator has made freely available for ALL human beings. The threat of war looms over many Muslim countries. Along with that, individual rights and freedoms of Muslims are being trampled on and many innocent Muslims are being imprisoned and tortured justified by the trumped up charge of being “terrorists”. The plans for deliberate war against Muslims are not secret. They are carefully laid out in open strategic documents developed in the US and Israel . This section will present articles dealing with the wars fought against Muslims in Iraq , Afghanistan , Iran , Sudan , Somalia , Chechnya , Kashmir and other places. It will also feature articles exposing the persecutions and injustices faced by Muslims in western lands.
Damascus, (Sana) – President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to Le Figaro.
Bashar al-Assad challenged the West to provide "the slightest proof" he has used
chemical weapons against his people in his first reaction to allegations that his forces
killed more than 1,400 people in a gas attack on August 21.
He questioned the "logic" of claims that his forces carried the August 21 attack outside
Damascus, which the US said killed 1,429 people.
"Supposing our army wishes to use weapons of mass destruction. Is it possible that it
would do so in a zone where it is located and where (our) soldiers were wounded by
these arms, as United Nations inspectors have noted during visits to hospitals where they
were treated? Where is the logic?," he asked.
Describing the Middle East as a "powder keg" whose "fuse is getting shorter", he warned it
would "explode" if Western forces struck Syria. "Nobody knows what will happen (after such
strikes). Everyone will lose control of the situation when the powder keg explodes. Chaos
and extremism will spread. The risk of a regional war exists," he warned.

Today, US power rests heavily on its terrifying military, its industrial-financial complex, and its global media clout. But that power is fast eroding because, in the age of the Internet, power is increasingly much more about prestige, credibility and trust, an area where the US is falling to pieces.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Expediency Council Chairman and former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani took the US, its allies and hirelings in Syria responsible for the chemical attacks in the Muslim country.
“The US had prepared everything beforehand and they themselves have stated that they had known the chemical materials were due to be used three days before the attack took place,” Rafsanjani was quoted as saying by an informed source in the latest meeting of the Expediency Council in Tehran on August 31.

Ghouta, Syria – As the machinery for a U.S.-led military intervention in Syria gathers pace following last week’s chemical weapons attack, the U.S. and its allies may be targeting the wrong culprit.
Interviews with people in Damascus and Ghouta, a suburb of the Syrian capital, where the humanitarian agency Doctors Without Borders said at least 355 people had died last week from what it believed to be a neurotoxic agent, appear to indicate as much.
