Understanding IS: Articles by Raymond Ibrahim

September 21, 2014 - 16:19 -- Admin

Raymond Ibrahim is an intellectual, an author, a CBN news commentator and a Middle East and Islam expert. His views on the misinterpretation of Islam by the West and of the current IS Caliphate are as disturbing to the Western understanding of Islam, such as it is, as they are challenging. They make essential reading for anyone seeking to understand Australia's contribution to the coalition of the willing.


IS: Bombs Will Not Make the Problem Go Away

September 11, 2014 - 10:38 -- Admin

Hashemi Rafanjani, Chairman of the Iran Expediency Council, has said that Iran is willing to cooperate with the US against IS if the Americans are really genuine. “Really genuine” is not defined. But he did point out that IS draws its support from people who have suffered. Bombing IS, perhaps defeating it on the deserts of Syria and Iraq, will not remove the root cause of its existence.

One was new, and was more than a little worrying. It looked at the prevalence of RFID devices implanted into people apparently without their knowledge.


Israel Policy: Stealing is Lawful, Power is All

September 3, 2014 - 12:10 -- Admin

There are those who write about Israel's most recent bellicose land grab as though it can be reversed. The US should do more, etc. What incredible naivety at worst, cynicism at best. Israel will steal what it wants from Palestinians in the West Bank just as it destroyed what it wanted to in Gaza. The US and others might just raise a tut tut, but that will be all.


9/11 - How Have Official Lies Survived 13 Years?

August 31, 2014 - 23:03 -- Admin

As the WTC buildings collapsed in September 2001, I was watching events unfold on the TV in Perth, Australia. An American Major, an engineer in uniform, was being interviewed, by CNN I think. He stated quite clearly that he did not think the collapses were due to planes hitting the buildings. The interview was not repeated. It was not referred to again, anywhere.
