Spineless Erdogan Enters Syria after Receiving Permission from Trump

Following the withdrawal of American troops, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has commenced the Turkish incursion into Kurdish territory in northeast Syria. According to CNN:

Turkey began a planned military offensive into northeastern Syria on Wednesday, launching airstrikes and artillery fire across the border just days after the Trump administration announced it was pulling US troops back from the area.

The operation is aimed at pushing Kurdish forces — who were a key ally of the US in the fight against ISIS — away from Turkey’s border.

“Our aim is to destroy the terror corridor which is trying to be established on our southern border and to bring peace and peace to the region,” Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tweeted as he announced the start of the operation.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who operate in the area are US allies. They are led by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.

As a barrage of airstrikes and artillery fire volleyed into northern Syria, chaotic scenes unfolded on the ground as people tried to flee to safety. Roads were gridlocked with hundreds of fleeing families, motorcycles piled with five to six people and mattresses strapped to cars.

America has been orchestrating a complex plan in Syria, engaging multiple regional powers to patrol different areas within Syria in order to crush the revolution. America was able to lure Turkey to participate in its evil plan, by threatening a Kurdish state along Turkey’s entire southern border, following which Erdogan dutifully fulfilled his role in the evil scheme by eliminating the revolutionary threat in northwest Syria. But Erdogan remains fearful of the Kurds and has been pleading with Trump for months to be allowed to enter the northeast also, which he has now done.

America has fully replaced Britain as the master of balance of power in the Muslim world. Instead of realising who our true enemies are, our rulers are obsessed with striking each other and obtaining America’s blessing in order to do so.

The Muslim Ummah will not be rid of its ills until it re-establishes the Islamic Khilafah (Caliphate) State on the method of the Prophet ﷺ, unifying all Muslim lands and fully expelling the disbelieving imperialists from our lands.


America Uses Saudi-Iran conflict to Deploy more US Troops for ‘Defensive’ Purposes

It is well known to careful observers of Middle East politics that both Iran and Saudi equally follow the American agenda, and that America has designed the very real conflict between them only to benefit US objectives in the region. Having made a big show of withdrawing US forces from northeast Syria, America is struggling to explain why it is now deploying new troops to Saudi Arabia. According to the New York Times:

The United States is sending about 3,000 additional troops to Saudi Arabia in the latest military response by the Trump administration after it accused Iran of attacks last month on Saudi oil facilities, the Pentagon said on Friday.

The move came only five days after President Trump said that his desire to terminate America’s “endless wars” led to his decision to pull back from the border area between Syria and Turkey about 50 troops who were working to create a “safe zone” between Turkish and Kurdish troops.

State Department officials struggled on Friday to answer questions about how the roles of the incoming American forces in the Persian Gulf kingdom and those being pulled back from the Syrian border differed, and whether the deployments to Saudi Arabia contradicted the president’s strategy of withdrawing from the Middle East.

“The troops that we are sending into Saudi and the enhanced assets are defensive,’’ said Brian H. Hook, the State Department’s special representative for Iran. “They are there to defend our interests and to help Saudi defend itself.”

At the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper said he was dispatching two Air Force fighter squadrons, or about four dozen warplanes, as well as Patriot antimissile batteries and other air and missile defenses to the kingdom.

“Saudi Arabia is a longstanding security partner in the Middle East, and has asked for additional support to supplement their own defenses,” Mr. Esper told reporters at the Pentagon, noting that he had called Saudi officials Friday morning to notify them.

Domestic American public opinion is opposed to wars abroad. But the Western elite will never cease their exploitation of the world, and Western military presence is fundamental to safeguarding their interests in our lands. Nevertheless, this military presence is only made possible by the cooperation of our own rulers, serving as agents to the West. But the world shall soon witness the Muslim Ummah shaking off these foreign agent rulers, securing its borders against the West, and reasserting its true position as the leading nation in the world. Allah (swt) says in the noble Qur’an: كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَلَوْ آمَنَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ لَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَّهُم مِّنْهُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ “You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. If only the People of the Scripture had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient”. [Aal Imran: 110]


America Draws China into Pakistan-India Conflict over Kashmir in order to Pave the Way for Trump’s Mediation between Pakistan and India

America is successfully playing the old British game between Pakistan and India also. Where the British used Muslim-Hindu conflict to present themselves as the mediating force, America uses the Pakistan-India conflict to do the same. It is America that green-lighted Modi’s takeover of Kashmir and it is America that seeks to gain the most benefit from this by entering into the region through a mediation role. However, it is to pave the way for this entry that America has enticed China to begin the negotiations. Earlier this week, the Pakistan leadership was in China, and now Chinese President Xi Jinping is visiting Modi in India. According to

Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Indian host Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged at an informal summit to cooperate against “radicalisation”, India said late Friday, after the Asian giants with historically prickly ties had exchanged sharp words over Kashmir.

The seaside meeting aimed at mending relations after India irked China by its splitting of Jammu and Kashmir state into two in August. The decision will also make the area’s Ladakh region — part of which is claimed by Beijing — a separate Indian administrative territory.

India in turn has been enraged by China’s diplomatic backing for Pakistan, which controls a much larger part of the disputed Muslim-majority Kashmir region.

But at their talks on Friday, the leaders acknowledged a common challenge, Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said.

“Both leaders said that these were large countries and that radicalisation was a matter of concern to both, and that both would work together to see that radicalisation and terrorism did not affect the fabric of our multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-religious societies”, Gokhale told reporters.

Foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar called it “a highly productive day”.

Part of Beijing’s Belt and Road infrastructure mega-programme is planned in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and Xi held talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan in Beijing just two days before meeting Modi.

When Xi said he supports Pakistan´s “legitimate rights”, India’s foreign ministry thundered it was “not for other countries to comment on the internal affairs of India”.

China is more oppressive than India in its treatment of the Xinjiang Muslims, so how does Imran Khan think to appeal to President Xi to help Muslims in Kashmir.

Foreign powers such as China or America are not the solution to our difficulties but the cause of them. America, like Britain before it, works to instigate problems throughout the world, only to provide the pretext for the superpower to intrude wherever it so desires. Rulers like Imran Khan are well aware of great power objectives yet go along with them without shame or guilt for their treachery and betrayal of the Muslim Ummah.
