EU chief calls ex-London mayor’s EU-Nazi comparison ‘absurd’

European Union (EU) President Donald Tusk says former London mayor and Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson has “political amnesia” after Johnson compared the EU’s unifying agenda to Adolf Hitler’s plan to rule the continent.

Speaking at a press conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, Tusk said, “When I hear the EU being compared to the plans and projects of Adolf Hitler I cannot remain silent.”

“Such absurd arguments should be completely ignored if they hadn’t been formulated by one of the most influential politicians in the ruling party,” he said.

“Boris Johnson crossed the boundaries of a rational discourse, demonstrating political amnesia,” he added.

Tusk was responding to comments Johnson made in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, published Sunday, in which he said that attempts to unify Europe always failed.

“Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods,” Johnson said.

Tusk’s intervention is significant as the EU’s most senior figures have been keeping a low profile in the campaign despite their anti-Brexit stance.

A British exit from the EU, or Brexit, would rip away its second-largest economy, one of its top two military powers and by far its richest financial center.

London’s status as a global financial center could be eroded if the UK votes to leave the EU, the Washington, DC-based IMF warned on Friday.

The prediction from the IMF came a day after the Bank of England also warned about the negative impact of an EU exit.

Opinion polls have indicated that most UK voters believe staying in the EU would be best for Britain’s economy, but that support for leaving and remaining in the EU still remains at a virtual tie.

The economy and the impact of a possible British exit on jobs, wages and trade are a key battleground for both the “In” and “Out” campaigns before Britons vote on June 23 on whether to stay in the 28-member bloc.

The “In” campaign, those in favor of remaining in the bloc, argue that leaving it would risk the UK’s prosperity, diminish its influence over world affairs, and result in trade barriers between the UK and the EU.

Those that support an EU withdrawal argue it would allow Britain to be better able to control immigration, be in a better position to conduct its own trade negotiations, and be free from what they believe to be unnecessary EU regulations and bureaucracy.

Red Youth: fight flunkeyism!

londinium1837b
failing to organise meaningful solidarity with socialist Korea

It has been brought to the attention of Red Youth, that Dermot Hudson, who goes by the email “juche007” (!) and heads up various counter-productive projects such as the “Juche Idea Study Group of England” (JISGE) and the” Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK” (ASSPUK), has taken it upon himself, once again, to engage in uncomradely, secretive and malicious rumour-mongering about young members, candidates and supporters of the CPGB-ML (and by proxy Red Youth) with regards to our stance in defence of the DPRK, the Workers Party of Korea and the Korean revolution. What is more, this snake, sick with the knowledge of his own impotence and irrelevance, tries to undermine the warm, friendly relations which exist between young supporters and members of the CPGB-ML and our Korean comrades.

Comrade Hudson’s parody of solidarity with the DPRK leads him to engage in long facebook debates with teenagers who share his adolescent obsession with facebook, youtube and the internet.

Comrade Hudson, rather than openly attack the position of the CPGB-ML and Red Youth on questions concerning the DPRK and our solidarity work with Socialist Korea, chooses instead to engage in secretive email correspondence and rumour mongering against our Party, our revolutionary youth and those who support our politics or are coming closer to them. Comrade Hudson knows nothing of who is, or is not a member of the Red Youth and CPGB-ML and yet professes some special knowledge of the same.

Comrade Hudson is afflicted with the same sickness which infects many of the passive, and apathetic sections of imperialist society. This is characterised by the substitution of the internet and facebook for the real world; replacing the real work of building up an actually existing revolutionary organisation of the British proletariat with pseudo “solidarity” work such as opening up a new Facebook page, or website. Such “work” is merely a testament to one’s own impotence, smug idleness and self-delusion.

Comrade Hudson’s exaggeration of the importance of his own ‘work’, bordering on the delusional, goes hand in hand  with a sneering and contemptuous attitude towards those who make real efforts to fight imperialist injustice and build real, even mighty, and earth shaking socialist movements.

So Dermot is prone to belittling the achievements of the Soviet Union, and the contribution of the USSR and People’s China to the Korean people’s fight against imperialism, and undermining of the proletarian internationalism of Kim il Sung, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong. In a statement carried by one of comrade Hudson’s many ‘fronts’  (ASSPUK – aside from the ridiculous acronym, it is worth noting that Hudson has more ‘organisations’ than individual members) in 2011, this flunkey wrote:

“…the KPA was founded as the Anti Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army in Antu deep in the forests of Manchuria in 1932 by the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung. The AJPGA was an army of the workers and peasants and a revolutionary armed force of the Korean people. It was founded without the support of a state or a rear base. It was the first guerrilla army in the world organised under the banner of Marxism-Leninism.”

Our Marxist-Leninist newspaper Lalkar exposed this servility thus:

“This statement ignores the guerrilla warfare waged by the Soviet Army against foreign imperialists and the Whites in the civil war and the war against foreign intervention. It ignores the founding of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army by the Chinese Communist Party on 1 August 1927. It ignores the substantial assistance subsequently rendered by the USSR, as very briefly detailed, in the words of Comrade Kim Il Sung, above. It ignores the fact that, by organising in Manchuria, the Korean revolutionaries could count on substantial support from their Chinese comrades.

The statement refers to the liberation of Korea on 15 August 1945 without even one word for the hundreds of thousands of Soviet Red Army fighters who took part in that epic campaign.

When it comes to the Korean War of 1950-53, whilst noting some of the other imperialist countries who joined the USA in attacking the DPRK, the statement utterly shamefully has only this to say about internationalist support to the DPRK at the time:

“The KPA was also short of weapons as its allies did not supply them speedily enough.”

Previously, the same person, although this time calling himself the “UK Korean Friendship Association” had written:

“Also during the Fatherland Liberation war in the 1950 (sic) not enough weapons were supplied to the DPRK by its allies.”

So, not enough and not quickly enough – this is how this disgraceful individual persists in describing the heroic contributions of millions of Chinese and tens of thousands of Soviet military personnel and their entire countries, who risked nuclear annihilation in order to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their Korean comrades.

We can but ask what actually motivates this individual to seek to ridicule and isolate our Korean comrades, with his toxic mixture of caricature, sycophancy, slander of the PRC and USSR, and malicious falsehoods. Whatever, they are a gross disservice to the just cause of the heroic Korean people. A principled and effective movement in solidarity with the Korean people will be built among the British working class in opposition to such people, not in collaboration with them.”

Conclusions for those who wish to undertake meaningful solidarity work

Comrade Hudson is clearly of the belief that an attack upon our Party and youth is meaningful work in solidarity with People’s Korea. Let us be clear – Red Youth is the only revolutionary youth organisation in Britain. The CPGB-ML is the only thoroughly, consistent and principled Marxist-Leninist organisation in Britain. This charlatan is an enemy of the Korean people and British workers when he persists in such behaviour.

Comrade Hudson is clearly of the opinion, that malicious rumour mongering and gossiping is the way to defend the Korean revolution. Malicious rumour mongering, private gossiping, cowardly attacks and misplaced arrogance are signs of opportunism and petty-bourgeois liberalism. Ideological struggle, open polemics and work to build up a revolutionary Communist Party for British workers are the hallmarks of a true Communist, and a true friend of the Korean people.

Red Youth and the DPRK

Trump ‘doing job of Daesh’, says London mayor

Presumptive Republican nominee for US president Donald Trump (L) and London Mayor Sadiq Khan

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has warned that Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for US president, is “doing the job” of extremist groups like Daesh (ISIL) through his “ignorant” and “divisive” views on Islam.

Khan, a Muslim, and Trump have been engaged in a war of words over the White House hopeful’s proposal that all Muslims be banned from the United States.

“By giving the impression there is a clash of civilizations, are you doing the job of Daesh and extremists for them by saying the West hates Islam,” he said on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.

“The vast majority of Muslims are law abiding, peaceful,” Khan said. “I accept there are a small minority of people who do bad things, they are terrorists, they are criminals, using the name of Islam to justify what they do.”

Khan argued that his election as the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital showed “hope trumps fear” and “unity trumps division.”

“With the greatest respect to Donald Trump, your views on Islam are ignorant,” he said. “Western liberal values and mainstream Islam are compatible.”

In December, Trump called for a “total and complete” ban on Muslims entering the United States after a deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, which was inspired by the Daesh terrorist group.

The proposal triggered widespread criticism and condemnation in the US and around the world.

“His policies would mean Leicester, the Premier League champions, couldn’t take Riyad Mahrez to America. They’d mean Nadiya Hussain, the Great British Bake Off champion, couldn’t go to America,” Khan said.

On the same program Monday, Trump said Khan was “very rude” to have criticized him and challenged him to an IQ test. “I am not stupid,” the billionaire businessman insisted.

“When he won, I wished him well,” Trump said of Khan, who scored a resounding victory over his billionaire Conservative rival earlier this month. “Now I don’t care about him.”

The White House hopeful also warned he may not have a “very good relationship” with David Cameron after the prime minister criticized his Muslim-ban proposal as “stupid.”

“Number one, I’m not stupid, I can tell you that right now, just the opposite. I don’t think I’m a divisive person, I’m a unifier, unlike our president now,” Trump said.

Last week, Khan rejected Trump’s offer that he could be an exception to his proposed ban on all Muslims entering the United States.

Stop Collective Punishment Policy against fishermen in Gaza Sea

NOVANEWS
Stop Collective Punishment Policy against fishermen in Gaza Sea, Nazi Naval Forces Arrests 10 Fishermen, Confiscates 2 Boats and Drowns Another.

Image result for fishermen in Gaza PHOTO

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) strongly condemns the last night attack by Nazi naval forces against a number of fishermen in the Northern Gaza Sea.  Nazi forces arrested 10 fishermen confiscated two fishing boats and drowning a third one, which fishermen later pulled.  PCHR calls upon the international community to intervene for the protection of Palestinian fishermen and their right to sail and fish freely in Gaza Sea and stop all forms of collective punishment against the Palestinian fishermen and their property which constitute a violation of the international humanitarian law and the international human rights law.   

According to PCHR’s investigations, at approximately 19:00 on Sunday, 15 May 2016, while a number of Palestinian fishing boats were sailing within 3 nautical miles off Northern Gaza shore, northwest of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip, Nazi gunboats stationed near the fishing boats heavily opened fire and fired dozens of shells at the boats.

Two Nazi gunboats then surrounded 3 Palestinian fishing boats belonging to the sons of Redwan ‘Abdullah Baker and manned by 10 fishermen, including 3 children.  Nazi soldiers forced the fishermen to take their clothes off, jump into the water and swim towards the gunboats.  The fishermen were then arrested and taken to Ashdod Seaport for interrogation.  The arrested fishermen were identified as:

  1. Khaled Redwan Baker (44);
  2. Khamis Redwan Baker (51);
  3. Ghaleb Redwan Baker (38);
  4. Ahmed Khaled Baker (23);
  5. Mohammed Khamis Baker (17);
  6. Jamil Ahmed ‘Adas (17);
  7. Muhanned ‘Abdel Rahman Baker (24);
  8. Mohammed Mahmoud Baker (17);
  9. Adham Ashraf al-Ashwah (23) and
  10. Hasan Ibrahim Madi (26).

All of the arrested fishermen are from al-Rimal neighbourhood and al-Shati’ refugee camp in Gaza City.  Moreover, Nazi naval forces confiscated 2 fishing boats and drowned another one, which was later pulled by other fishermen, after shooting and shelling it. At approximately 21:30, Nazi forces released 8 fishermen while they so far keep Khamis Baker and Hasan Madi under arrest.  Moreover, the two boats are still under the Nazi forces’ custody.

PCHR strongly condemns the new Nazi attack against Palestinian fishermen and their property. PCHR also considers that attack as a grave violation of the fishermen’s right to sail and fish freely and to protect their property in the Gaza waters.  Moreover, PCHR believes that such attacks against Palestinian fishermen constitute a form of collective punishment against them which aims to target fishermen and their livelihood.

Furthermore, PCHR calls upon the international community to provide protection for Palestinian fishermen and their right to sail and fish freely, and to stop all forms of collective punishment against fishermen and their property which violate the international humanitarian law and the international human rights law.

The Nakba at 68: A catastrophe born of discrimination and impunity

NOVANEWS

Image result for NAKBA PHOTO

As Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons (approximately 66% of Palestinian population worldwide) enter the 69th year of forced displacement from, and within, their ancestral homeland, Israel continues to create intolerable living conditions which further swell the number of displaced Palestinians. This ongoing Nakba (‘catastrophe’) is perpetuated through Israel’s denial of the Palestinian refugees’ Right of Return, the right to self-determination, and various other Israeli policies, which give rise to forced displacement of Palestinians, including forcible transfer and deportation, as grave breaches of international law. These policies are framed within the wider gamut of perpetual human rights violations being committed by Israel on both sides of the green line, across the entirety of the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel.

Inside occupied East Jerusalem and so-called ‘Area C’ (accounting for more than 60% of occupied West Bank land), Israel pursues with complete impunity a policy of forcible transfer of Palestinians by way of –inter alia – unlawful land appropriation, home demolitions, denial of residency, restrictions on land access, and extensive settlement expansion. Further, Palestinian residents of these areas are subject to systematic discrimination, harassment and violence perpetrated by Israeli settlers and security services alike, producing a highly coercive environment in which Palestinians are often left with little option but to leave their homes and communities.

Meanwhile, the Gaza Strip and its residents – some 80% of which are registered refugees – are plunged further into humanitarian crisis, choked by Israel’s ongoing punitive closure of this enclave which prevents desperately needed recovery following multiple rounds of Israeli military assault. As a result, many tens of thousands of Palestinians remain internally-displaced within the Gaza Strip, living in inhuman conditions and with no end to their displacement in sight.

This widespread Palestinian suffering is not limited to the borders of Mandate Palestine, however, but also extends to the almost 6.2 million individuals (approximately 49% of Palestinians) who make up the international Palestinian Shatat (Diaspora). Of particular concern is the fate of those in Syria, with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the Near East (UNRWA) finding that half a million Palestinian refugees have been directly affected by the unchecked violence of the ongoing armed conflict. More than 60% of these refugees have now experienced multiple phases of displacement inside and outside Syria. Moreover, those refugees who have been forced to seek safety in other states are subjected to either non-refoulment or discrimination by countries of third refuge.

The plight of Palestinian refugees is compounded by structural failings within the very systems which are intended to afford these refugees protection. Palestinian refugees are victims of a grievous protection gap; regularly denied protection under the 1951 Refugee Convention on account of consistent misinterpretation of Article 1D by the domestic courts of state signatories. This provision entitles Palestinian refugees to full protection under the Convention in the event that they are unable to avail themselves of protection or assistance from a dedicated UN agency other than the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), yet no UN agency is currently providing legal protection, including the seeking of a durable solution, to this displaced population.

The United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine (UNCCP), established with the purpose of seeking a just and durable solution to the Palestinian refugee question, has now lain effectively dormant for more than half a century, thus depriving Palestinian refugees of a UN agency mandated with the provision of legal protection. UNRWA, which is mandated with affording humanitarian protection/assistance to Palestinian refugees living in its five operational areas only, is unable to fill this lacuna on account of chronic funding issues and a mandate which, in its present form, does not incorporate legal protection or the pursuit of an end to the ongoing exile of this displaced population. However, too often domestic courts have employed an overly simplistic interpretation which assumes protection to be present merely by virtue of a Palestinian refugee residing in an area subject to UNRWA’s jurisdiction.

This untenable situation must be addressed as a matter of urgency, but also highlights the necessity of implementing a durable solution for Palestinian refugees in accordance with international law, specifically United Nations General Assembly resolution 194 of 1948, and United Nations Security Council resolution 237 of 1967. This, in turn, can likely only be achieved through the presence of a fully-functioning and fully-supported agency dedicated to pursuing such a solution. Thus, there exists a clear and pressing need to either revive UNCCP, to completely integrate Palestinian refugees into the scope of UNHCR mandate, or to officially extend UNRWA’s existing mandate – both in its core content and geographic scope, as well as its funding base, so as to provide comprehensive protection to Palestinian refugees. Failure to do so is to maintain a status quo where international protection is absent, with Palestinians condemned to a fate of acute hardship and further displacement.

Accordingly, we, the undersigned members of the Palestinian Human Rights Organizations Council, make the following recommendations:

(i)                                  That the international community takes all measures to ensure Israel’s compliance with its obligations under IHL and IHRL and calls on Israel to cease those policies and practices which adversely affect the protected population. The international community is thus reminded that forcible transfer and deportation amount to grave breaches of IHL and, as such, States must not recognize the ensuing situation as lawful, nor render aid or assistance in maintaining the situation. The international community should further call for immediate cessation of such activities and seek guarantees of non-repetition and reparations;

(ii)                              That the international community, including third party states, regional bodies and other relevant actors, genuinely strives to secure international protection – including durable solutions – for Palestinian refugees, and primarily, their Right of Return and to self-determination;

(iii)                          That UN agencies and bodies, including UNRWA and UNHCR, take all available measures to close the legal protection gap suffered by Palestinian refugees, including lobbying for the consistent and just interpretation of Article 1D of the 1951 Refugee Convention by domestic courts;

(iv)                           That the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization make concerted efforts to press concerned states and international agencies to meet their responsibilities, particularly with a view to fulfilling their obligations relating to non-refoulment, and non-discrimination.

Canada’s Ontario parliament rejects anti-BDS bill

A bill to blacklist supporters of the Palestinian boycott, divestment and sanctions movement was handily defeated in the parliament of Ontario on Thursday.

Lawmakers in Canada’s most populous province rejected it by 39 votes to 18 after a debate in which the bill’s supporters falsely accused the BDS movement of encouraging 1930s-style boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses in Europe.

Civil liberties defenders are celebrating the result as a victory for free speech.

Ontario’s centrist Liberal Party government and the center-left New Democratic Party (NDP) joined forces against the legislation.

Nazi tiresome exceptionalism

Corbyn - Do not be a wimp

…and how to fend off the Zionist Inquisition

By Stuart Littlewood

As everyone and his dog knows by now, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone was suspended from the Labour Party for expressing an uncomfortable truth – uncomfortable, that is, for Zionists.

What was it? He said:

When Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews.

He made the remark in a confrontation with the obnoxious John Mann, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Anti-Semitism, in front of cameras.

Level-headed folk might gently quibble that there was no such place as Israel back in 1932 and Livingstone meant Palestine. Instead, all hell broke loose, orchestrated by the usual Israel lobby loud-mouths.

He has still not been told what it was about his comment that warranted suspension, although many agree that linking Zionism with Hitler, even though it rang true, was bound to ruffle a few feathers.

Sinister game

As a consequence, this veteran servant of the party has now lost his place on the all-powerful National Executive Committee and is barred from participating in upcoming elections to it.

The Independent reports that he will now be replaced on the left-wing slate by Rhea Wolfson, a former president of Oxford University’s Jewish Society and, according to the Jewish Chronicle, a former outreach manager for the New Israel Fund. She has the support of Jon Lansman, chair of Momentum’s steering committee. Momentum is a company set up to campaign for Jeremy Corbyn, Labour’s controversial new leader. It was founded by Lansman who is Jewish.

As soon as Livingstone made his reckless comment Lansman slammed into him:

A period of silence from Ken Livingstone is overdue, especially on anti-Semitism, racism and Zionism. It’s time he left politics altogether.

Livingstone happens to be a long-time friend of Corbyn, so make what you will of these merry intrigues.

It seems there is a sinister game afoot within Labour to suspend opponents of the Israel lobby, such as Livingstone, on bogus allegations of anti-Semitism (details of which are not revealed even to the alleged culprit) so that they can be removed from positions of influence and immobilised long enough to be replaced by more Zio-friendly individuals. And Corbyn and John McDonnell and their huge following are too petrified to do anything about it.

Combating anti-Semitism

While the Labour Party thrashes about in agony on the rack of an anti-Semitism Inquisition, the musician and writer Gilad Atzmon has posted a useful video on his website titled “How to combat Anti-Semitism”. If our society is as riddled with irrational hatred of Jews as the Zionist mafioso claim, maybe there’s a reason! The video’s timely message to Jewish viewers is simple. Address the following issues and you’ll go a long way to reducing the problem.

  • Get rid of Holocaust denial laws. Who would stand for laws making it illegal to deny the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Imagine going to jail for that? In a free society everything’s up for mature discussion and examination of the facts. Truth never fears facts.
  • Please stop obsessing over Israel. If you wish to enjoy the British or American way of life remember your first loyalty is to the UK or US. Quit calling on MPs and congressmen to expend blood and treasure on war with whoever Israel happens to dislike today. If you’re so concerned about the Jewish state’s “security” kindly go fight, bleed and pay for it yourselves.
  • You have your Jewish identity and wear it with pride. Cool. Allow us to have our exclusive tribal identity if we so wish. As it happens, most of us don’t.
  • You also have your own ethnic nation, Israel. We don’t have such a thing. In this age of enlightenment, the 21st Century, it’s considered wrong – downright evil, actually – for us to want our own white Christian country all to ourselves. Your ethnic homeland has walls and gun towers to keep out displaced Arabs and other non-Jews. We’re not allowed to eject or keep out those we don’t want. Double standards again.
  • You can shout “anti-Semitism” all you like but why should we consider your opinion until you explain rationally why Israel and its supporters insist on one law (or one set of standards) for themselves and another law (or another set of standards) for Palestinians and the rest of us? How should decent folk respond to a regime that endlessly oppresses Christian and Muslim communities in the Holy Land and has subjected them to brutal military occupation for almost 50 years? Or to those who admire and defend such cruelty?

The video’s advice complements the warning by Israel’s former military intelligence chief, Yehoshafat Harkabi, that Israeli misconduct will be paid for by Jews throughout the world. Listen to Harkabi and, for the sake of peaceful coexistence, let’s hear no more tiresome claims to exceptional and special consideration.

Until now the US didn’t seem to be ready to exert the necessary pressure on the Saudis to stop the export of the Wahhabist takfiri ideology which Saudi Arabia tries to spread through madrasas, says Middle East expert Ali Rizk.

RT: Despite the peace talks, the ongoing violence is still devastating Syria. So, are these negotiations therefore worthless?  

Ali Rizk: I think in the negotiations there will be very little room to make progress, as long as we don’t address the root cause of terrorism. Now the root cause of terrorism, like this attack in Damascus, remains the Wahhabist takfiri ideology, which is exported by Saudi Arabia. Until now Saudi Arabia and its Western allies, notably the US, have not seemed to be ready to exert the necessary pressure on the Saudis in order to stop this export of the Wahhabist takfiri ideology which Saudi Arabia tries to spread through the madrasas.

As I said, more of this will continue. The problem, be it from ISIS or be it from other groups like Al-Nusra, in the end it comes down to one main problem which is the Wahhabist salafi ideology. I don’t know if you are also aware there was a significant statement made by this democratic member of the Senate, Senator Chris Murphy on Friday when he said that this issue is a fundamental issue that must be addressed. The Saudis and their support for Wahhabism…

RT: The Syrian opposition and government representatives haven’t held direct talks. How important is it that they do?

AR: I think that trying to reach a solution is, of course, something positive. Possibly, one of the aims of this particular attack by the terrorist was to derail the talks to prevent any progress from being achieved. Talking is important, but at the same time I believe that these bombings once again stress that the Syrian government and its allies – like Russia, Iran – are very much correct when they say that the priority must be terrorism, then we address other issues like the constitutional amendments, elections, the fate of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Syrian government and Russia and Iran have always maintained that fighting terrorism comes first, then we address the other matters. That’s contrary to the position taken by some of the Syrian opposition factions. So, I believe that today’s events might convince some that it is necessary to address the root causes and to address the most urgent problem which is that of terrorism, then resorting to other matters…

234

RT: Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack. Does the timing of the blast surprise you?

AR: Actually, what caught my attention is that we had an attack just on Friday which also targeted a Shia mosque in Saudi Arabia. I am not sure if ISIS claimed the responsibility or not. But in the end it is the same school of thought: takfiri terror. Now we have ISIS reportedly going ahead and bombing a Shia shrine in Syria, the Zeinab shrine. There are many Sunnis who also visit this shrine. It reminds me very much of the practices which used to be resorted to by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the former leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq when he attacked the Shia shrines in Samarra in Iraq with the aim of igniting Shia – Sunni strife. I believe that what we have witnessed recently – be it in Saudi Arabia on Friday or particularly this attack today in Sayeda Zeinab shrine is considered one of the holiest shrines – I think the aim there also could be to provoke an angry Shia reaction and hence create Sunni-Shia strife which would in the end serve the interests of ISIS and Al-Nusra. And I have to say it would also in one way or another serve the interest of Saudi Arabia and the Wahhabist clerics. I think it is significant to show that we have Shia now being targeted in more than one place in the Muslim world.
