Turkish war planes have launched air strikes on Kurdish positions in northern Syria, in a move likely to cause tensions with the US.

    • Rafiq: I tell many times here that there is peace in Islamic countries. Why?

      1. Most clerics turn away from believing God alone to believing Idols ( ( Hadith ).

      2. Most Muslim leaders and Imam or clerics are hypocrites .

  1. My best solution: every Islamic country has to obey Human Right. Treat all people fairly, and freedom of religion and expression.

    As we know that, Human Rught is the core of Islamic teaching from Bible and Al Quran

    So those country do not obey Human Right, he reject God’s law. Those who reject God’s law will be punished.

    So Human Rught is the key for PEACE.
