#AceWorldNews – SOCHI – October 26 – Russian President Vladimir Putin says the United States promotes terrorism by financing terrorists and creating division instead of strengthening unity among world nations.
The Russian leader made the comments on Friday during a speech at the plenary session of the 11th meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi.
“In Syria, just like in old times, the US and its allies began to provide militants with direct funding and weapons to incite filling of their ranks by mercenaries from different countries,” Putin said, adding that this is how the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group has turned into a “de facto army.”
“They [ISIL terrorists] are active in a highly effective manner, from the military perspective, they are real professionals,” he stated.
Putin also said another reason why the ISIL has gained so much power is because the so-called anti-ISIL coalition, led by the US, is creating division among regional powers.
The Russian president went on to say that such “unilateral dictatorship” does not help anti-terror efforts; instead it causes “growing chaos” in stable states.
#AceNewsServices – NIGERIA – October 07 – Boko Haram Decapitate seven Muslims in North East of Nigeria – reports. The violence came as Nigerian Muslims marked the Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice) festival, a public holiday in the country.
Most Islamic holidays in recent years have been marred by the Takfiri group, AFP reported.
The overnight raid targeted the town of Ngamdu in troubled Borno state, the area hardest hit in the extremists” five-year uprising.
In recent months, Boko Haram Takfiris have targeted reprisal attacks at locals who have fought alongside the military as vigilantes.
The terrorists are thought to be in control of more than two dozen towns and villages in the North-East, but the military has vowed to retake all lost ground as part of a continuing offensive launched in May of last year.
Muslims traditionally celebrate Eid al-Adha, one of the most important religious feasts, with the sacrifice of animals like sheep, rams, goats and cattle.
The act commemorates Prophet Abraham’s (PBUH) submission to divine order to sacrifice his son, Ismail (PBUH). However God provided Prophet Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead after he successfully passed the divine test.
#AceNewsServices – LEBANON – Families of the Lebanese soldiers and security officers kidnapped by Takfiri terrorists in Syria have blocked roads in Lebanon, urging the government to do more to release their loved ones.
On Monday, protesters erected high sand mounds across Dahr al-Baidar highway in the capital, Beirut, blocking all access, including a narrow passageway that had been kept open for ambulances and emergency cases.
Security sources said the road blockage was meant to express the families’ growing frustration with regard to what happened to their loved ones.
In northern Lebanon, relatives of captive soldier, Ibrahim Mogheit, also cut off a highway in Qalamoun region, severing access to the city of Tripoli.
Traffic had to be redirected to a narrow road, causing long trails of stranded cars.
#AceWorldNews – IRAN (Tehran) – September 08 – Iran accused the United States on Sunday of not taking the threat from ISIL militants in Iraq and Syria seriously, and charged that US aid had previously helped the Takfiri militants.
“There is still no serious understanding about the threat and they (the United States) have as yet taken no serious action,” Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in an interview with IRIB on Sunday morning.
“US has not been serious in fighting ISIL which roots in their double standards; the US supported ISIL back in Syria and now they want to fight them in Iraq,” he added, according to Mehr news agency.
The top Iranian diplomat said that there has not been enough and comprehensive understanding of ISIL threat yet, but “the Islamic Republic of Iran was aware of its danger since the beginning of ISIL establishment and Iran president’s WAVE (World Against Violence and Extremism) suggested to the last year UN General Assembly proves the Islamic Republic’s logic regarding such issues.”
He pointed to the Leader’s emphasis on danger of radicalism and said that “we know the ISIL danger and stand besides our Iraqi sisters and brothers to control it but this is dangerous for the whole region and international cooperation is needed to eradicate it.”
“The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism… have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy number one of Islam,” the kingdom’s top cleric said.
“Muslims are the main victims of this extremism, as shown by crimes committed by the so-called ISIL, Al-Qaeda and groups linked to them,” the mufti said, quoting a verse in the Quran urging the “killing” of people who do deeds harmful to Islam.
“In the circumstances the Islamic nation is living through, several countries have been destabilized” by extremists, who “divide Muslims” in the name of religion, the mufti said.
He warned: “In Islam, after heresy, dividing Muslims is the greatest crime.”The mufti urged “tolerance, which was at the origin of Islam’s growth and longevity.”
The ISIL had pronounced its “caliphate” last June. The Takfiri group has been widely known for its brutal crimes against civilians in Iraq and Syria.
Damascus has repeatedly accused the Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states of destabilizing Syria through funding and arming Takfiri groups like ISIL and Nusra Front.
Last Week, Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned that several countries, including Saudi Arabia fear the threat of ISIL.
During an interview with Lebanese daily al-Akhbar, the resistance leader highlighted that some countries know what they have created and raised, and that’s why their diagnosis of ISIL risk is the most accurate of others because they know what they have had, speaking about the “real horror” inside the Gulf countries and the Saudi Arabia because this thought have been taught for decades for people, schools and in the curriculum.
AceNewsServices – SYRIA – May 01 – (PressTV) – An al-Qaeda-linked Takfiri group says it has publicly crucified two militants in north-eastern Syria in retaliation for an earlier grenade attack on its members.
The terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) said the two were among a total of seven prisoners put to death in connection with a grenade attack in the Euphrates Valley city of Raqqa earlier this month.
“Ten days ago, attackers on a motorbike threw a grenade at an ISIL fighter at the Naim roundabout. A Muslim civilian had his leg blown off and a child was killed,” the ISIL said.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) has published a photo of the two militants being crucified with one of them being pictured with a banner which reads, “This man fought against Muslims and threw a grenade in this place.”
The SOHR said these crucifixions were not the first by the ISIL, noting that the Takfiris had crucified a man on April 16.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) stoned to death a young Syrian girl for membership in Facebook social network.
The ISIL militants took the Syrian girl, Fatoum Al-Jassem, to Al-Reqqa religious court and the judge ruled that membership in Facebook is tantamount to adultery and sentenced her to death by stoning, the Arabic-language Al-Rai Al-Youm reported.
The court decided that the girl’s use of the site deserved the same punishment that one would get if they committed adultery, so she was sentenced to death by stoning.
