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.
