Syrians are suffering from the hands of both Pro-Assad camps and ISIS.

The process of destabilization in the middle east region which started with 2003 invasion of Iraq is now taking more deadly turns. Aleppo and other Syrian cities are facing genocides of people from pro-Assad forces backed by Russia and the Khomenist regime in Iran, and also from the hands of ISIS.

The countries which started this war mess in the middle east especially US, UK and the countries who supported them are not even accepting refugees.

It is the prime responsibility of OIC countries especially bigger countries like Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey etc. to stand up and start a peace process in the region. At the moment USA, Russia and Iran are playing their super power game in Syria at the cost of innocent lives.

Saudi Arabia and other GCC cannot be trusted with any peace process either as they are playing their own power games at the cost of human lives in Yemen.

People around the world who believe in justice and humanity should raise their voice on the issues.

If the ongoing genocide in Syria doesn’t end then I am afraid that it will create more sectarian hate based wars in the region.

I hope some sense will prevail and someday in-sha-Allah we will see peace in the region.

Erdogan, Turkey, ISIS, Russia and Syrian mess

After the downing of the Russian Jet when it violated the Turkish airspace, there seems to be a lot of cold war style propaganda against Turkey and its role in Syria. It seems there is a deliberate attempt to take down Turkey using the situation in Syria.

If a liberal and democratic Turkey goes down then it will empower groups like ISIS and create chaos in Middle East and surrounding regions including Europe. Erdogan is not perfect like any other leader of the world but it is stupid to think that he is in bed with ISIS even after ISIS killed hundreds in Ankara blasts. ISIS considers all democratic leaders and their voters as infidels and worthy of being killed including leaders in Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc so it will be really stupid for anyone to support a group which is committed to to kill you, takeover your countries and destroy your system. ISIS is a product of hatred and chaos created after 2003 Invasion, they have no ideological grounds except revenge, hatred and ignorance. They started as a splinter group of Al-Qaida and later joined by Saddam loyalists who were full of vengeance.

If NATO or Russian led alliance want to eliminate ISIS then they need to stop playing super power games in Syria like they played in Afghanistan which resulted in the creation of Al-Qaida type groups.

Before accusing others, Russia first needs to give answers about the downed Malaysian civilian jet and the way they are destabilizing Ukraine.

This whole Syrian game is fishy with no clarity of approach on how to tackle ISIS or Daesh. At the moment Pakistan and China both are doing the right thing by staying out of it despite their own allies pushing them into this mess.

Turkey made a mistake of jumping into this Syrian mess like Pakistan made by jumping into the Afghan mess. Now they are facing similar pressures to do more or accusations of being in bed with the terrorists like Pakistan was facing even after losing a lot of civilians and soldiers in this war.

Many Pakistanis seem to be falling for this game too, mainly due to sectarian or left/right political alignment. Instead of bringing sectarianism from the conflicts between a theocracy like Iran or a family dynasty like KSA, we need to go more towards liberal Muslim democracies like Turkey, Indonesia, Azerbaijan and I hope Pakistan will be in the same or better league too. Things are not perfect in these countries but they seem to go in the right direction with the establishment of democratic processes, strong opposition culture and strong media.

Unfortunately, even in 21st century, we are stuck with theocracies, dictators like Assad or Al-Sissi and backward monarchies.

Reports of mass murders in Egypt by Fatah al Sisi and support to his regime by USA and Saudi Arabia

Recent reports of mass murder by Fattah al Sisi’s regime have exposed the hypocrisy of USA and its European allies for their commitment to democracy.USA and its allies in EU are still standing with the Egyptian dictator despite mass murders. No one expects any good from Saudi and UAE monarchy who have no regards for democracy, human rights and freedom. Situation in Egypt is becoming more like that of Syria where another dictator Bashar al Assad is killing people in hundreds with the support or Iran and Russia.

Its time for Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey,Syria and Central Asian countries to get their countries out of the influence of USA/Saudi Arabia who support mass murdering dictator in Egypt and Russia/Iran who support mass murdering dictator in Syria. Muslims have wasted a lot of time by taking sides in the affairs of these evil regimes in Iran, Saudi Arabia, USA and Russia.

Situations in Syria and Egypt should open up the eyes of freedom and justice loving people in Muslim world.

Syrian issue and Pakistan’s position

Recently in Iran, while attending a conference on Syria, Pakistani foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that Pakistan will not support any kind of foreign government intervention in Syria.

I agree with the decision of not involving Pakistani state but at the same time I will disagree with the govt. if they stop people to help Syrians on their own in terms of money, weapons or any other way they can.

Foreign involvement will turn the focus of movement and will likely to hijack the issue from local Syrian opposition like Iran hijacked the Bahrain movement resulting the failure of the movement. But we can see in Egypt, things are changing in positive direction.

At the same time governments should now stop supporting Assad’s brutal regime by cutting diplomatic and defense ties which is essential to remain neutral as Assad is using these things to strengthen his position in killing innocent people. At the same time I cannot oppose Syrian opposition to accept help from where ever it comes from as they are victim side and prime responsibility lies on the shoulders of Assad who initiated the brutal actions against civilian populations which includes merciless aerial bombings.

 

 

Domain Provider Drops WikiLeaks; Court Rejects Ban on WikiLeaks

Source : http://infocrats.org/mag/2010/12/sciencetechnology/domain-provider-drops-wikileaks-court-rejects-ban-on-wikileaks/

Karachi :  EveryDNS.net, a USA based domain company said it had terminated services because Wikileaks.org had come under massive cyber attacks.

Meanwhile, the domain provider for WikiLeaks has dropped the Wikileaks.org domain name. EveryDNS.net said it had terminated services because Wikileaks.org had come under massive cyber attacks and these cyber attacks endangered their infrastructure.

In a twitter message, WikiLeaks confirmed the dropping of domain.

“WikiLeaks,org domain killed by US everydns.net after claimed mass attacks”,the message said which is followed by their tag line ”KEEP US STRONG”.

The statement on EveryDNS.net website is given below (Taken from EveryDNS.net):

EveryDNS.net Status

All systems are functioning normally.

EveryDNS.net provided domain name system (DNS) services to the wikileaks.org domain name until 10PM EST, December 2, 2010, when such services were terminated. As with other users of the EveryDNS.net network, this service was provided for free. The termination of services was effected pursuant to, and in accordance with, the EveryDNS.net Acceptable Use Policy.

More specifically, the services were terminated for violation of the provision which states that “Member shall not interfere with another Member’s use and enjoyment of the Service or another entity’s use and enjoyment of similar services.” The interference at issues arises from the fact that wikileaks.org has become the target of multiple distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks. These attacks have, and future attacks would, threaten the stability of the EveryDNS.net infrastructure, which enables access to almost 500,000 other websites.

Thus, last night, at approximately 10PM EST, December 1, 2010 a 24 hour termination notification email was sent to the email address associated with the wikileaks.org account. In addition to this email, notices were sent to Wikileaks via Twitter and the chat function available through the wikileaks.org website. Any downtime of the wikileaks.org website has resulted from its failure to use another hosted DNS service provider.

In another even related to WikiLeaks, Lahore High Court dismissed a petition on Friday seeking a ban on WikiLeaks website.
The petition was filed by Arif Gondal in which he termed the leakage of secret information
by WikiLeaks as a conspiracy to create a rift among Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim
countries.

The petitioner requested the court to issue orders for imposing a ban on the website,he
argued that since Pakistan had good bilateral relations with a number of countries,
particularly Saudi Arabia and the leakage of these documents can adversely affect the relations.

Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of Lahore High Court dismissed the petition, calling it non-maintainable.

According to media reports Arif Gondal asked the court to ban the site as it has taken off clothes from everyone.

Justice Saeed reportedly remarked that we must bear the truth, no matter how harmful it is.

The decision is being seen as a major break through in terms of freedom of expression and
access to information in Pakistan.

Earlier,when the documents were released by WikiLeaks over the Internet having diplomatic
dispatches by US ambassadors and other foreign officials, it was clear that it will be no
less than a bombshell when it comes to relations between various countries.

The decision can have implications over government policies if they any time decide to ban the website through Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
