Give Syria Justice, Not Violence

His Holiness, the Khalifa of Islam and head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, is the only international Muslim leader to warn world leaders that their actions are creating the conditions for another world war.

Historians agree that World War III began when America invaded Syria.
That’s a line I hope my children never have to read when they enter high school in ten years. And hopefully with Obama’s September 10 address, I can breath a bit easier. While the world — i.e. the United States and France — determine Syria’s fate, innocent Syrians continue to die. While nations furiously denounce the barbarism of Syria’s chemical weapon use — ignoring Iraq’s, America’s, & Israel’s chemical weapon use — innocent Syrians continue to die. And while the debate continues on the proper way to intervene in Syria — ignoring established international UN protocol — innocent Syrians continue to die.

The United States continues its attempt to make the moral argument behind a “surgical” strike. We’ve heard this term before with America’s drone program, one that has “surgically” killed at least 178 civilians — many of them children. Meanwhile, pundits claim Nobel Peace laureate President Obama “must strike” or risk being viewed as “weak.” And perhaps this is the great lie causing the world to once again find itself on the brink of world war.

  1. “And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.”Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.” [2:11-12]

    i agree with the article that:

    1- the international didnt do enough to punish those militants of israel that used chemical weapons against the arabs in 2009

    2- US should stop its terrorist plots of drone strikes in asia

    3- more efforts need to be done on humanitarian and diplomatic areas to end the conflict in syria

    however I also believe in the teachings of the Quran that those who killed innocent civilians should be punished such as those assad’s militias that used chemical weapons as confirmed by UN secretery general. Also The Ummah needs to unite against those that cause corruption on the land such as zionists, al qaeda and other fanatical groups.

    “And there is for you in legal retribution [saving of] life, O you [people] of understanding, that you may become righteous.” [2:179]

    “Indeed, those who have tortured the believing men and believing women and then have not repented will have the punishment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the Burning Fire.” [85:10]
