Jaysh al Fatah opens up shop in Qalamoun as Nasrallah declares Hizbollah will fall if Asad does.

Lindsey Graham says that "all things that start with al from the Middle East are bad news." 

 

Definiteness is a frightening thing. 

 

I wonder how he feels about al Wilayaat al Mutahadah?

What's his position on al-Lah? I'm disappointed he didn't call attention to the devastation that 'ha' has brought to the world as well.

Lounging at a luxury hotel doesn't seem very Sunnah to me...

CENTCOM: "The training phase is a critical step in the Syria train and equip mission designed to build the capability of the appropriately vetted Syrian fighters so that they can defend the Syrian people from attacks by ISIL and secure territory controlled by the Syrian opposition"

 

Read: fight al-Qa'ida fi Sham. and Ahrar. Maybe not Jaysh al Islam. Too far south.

ya Shah, have you been following any Farsi sources on the unrest in Mahabad? I wonder if this turns into a real separatist movement. 

post #583 of 2692
there's not much known at this point: http://rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iran/07052015 (the comments section ...)

i can't see this turning into any kind of nationalist/separatist movement though. there've been times of uprisings in the past, both azeris and kurds, but generally small flare-ups.

incidentally, the regime does not allow sunnis to have masjids , and so they resort to congregation inside houses in tehran. a few years ago some wanted to make salat in the park or something and were beaten away by the authorities, can't have them showing publicly of course ...

Heyo, Jamal Ma'arouf is back! Looks like he has reentered Syria through Kobani with 300 fighters.

The shah doesnt iran have sunni imams in sunni regions and shiite imams in shiite ones? Its my understandingg that they dont allow mosques for a specific sect but the imam follows the majority of the mosques region. I may be under sugarcoated information though.

Saudis have pulled a Dresden on Saada. Not even israelis received that much lenience from the international community in terms of mass bombings. I remember in 2006 youd get at leasat face saving statements about civilians but total international silence about yemen, the poorest people in the region
