As the US-imposed April 29 deadline for a “framework” agreement between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority looms, time is also running out for the American administration on the issue. The Barack Obama administration needs to conjure up an escape route to avoid embarrassment if the talks are to fail. The Americans were likely aware when this latest process launched that peace under the current circumstances is unattainable.

Saudi Arabia’s decision to brand the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation should surprise none, the conservative kingdom’s paranoia about is not just movements that stand for freedom, human rights and democracy, but also Muslim groups or movements that believe in democracy.

There is only one hadith by Hisham which suggests the age of Hazrat … Continue reading Muslims need to respond with REASONING concerning Aisha RA age at marriage to The Prophet PBUH
