  • Syria: Is Bashar al-Assad winning the Diplomatic War? Rebels Fret
    • The chemical weapons were 100% removed according to John Kerry.

    • Well president Obama few months ago admitted that Isis is the direct outgrow of the chaos caused by the Iraq war. Now he is saying its a direct consequence of Assad! Guys watch the clip from his interview with vice news before forming a radical views.
      President Barack Obama traced the origins of Islamic State militants back to the presidency of George W. Bush and the invasion of Iraq back in 2003, arguing that its growth was an “unintended consequence” of the war.

      In an interview withVice News, President Obama said the rise of Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) can be directly linked to America’s excursion into Iraq under Bush.

      “Two things: One is, ISIL is a direct outgrowth of Al-Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion,” Obama said in an interview with VICE News. “Which is an example of unintended consequences. Which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”

      Obama stated that he is “confident” a coalition consisting of 60 nations “will slowly push back ISIL out of Iraq,” but added that the challenge of stopping extremism won’t stop unless there is a political solution to the internal strife affecting so many countries in the Middle East.

    • That is absolutely true. Most of the Syrian refugees were in turkey and it's obvious because there was no resent massive refugee movement from Syrian to turkey. For example Alyan and his family were renting a small apartment in turkey paid for by his Canadian sister and there were waiting for asylum refused by Canada. Keep in mind that the Kurdish northern Syrian village that they came from was massively attacked by the Turkish army after Isis took it over.

  • Why I Shared a Horrific Photo of a Drowned Syrian Child
    • Turkey can't escape its direct involvement that contributed to the entire chaos in Syria and its allowing Isis fighters to descend upon Syria via its border. Not to mention training fighters and supplying them with deadly weapons. It's calculation that they would do the fighting for them against the Kurds was short sided. Aylan Kobani and his family's tragedy in particular is directly caused by Tukey. Ardogan should stop throwing stones from his glass house.

  • Enter the Bear: Does Russia plan air strikes on Daesh/ISIL in Syria?
    • It's amazing how new channels can take couple of sentences and run with it in English to end up on a reputable site like informed comment. Gee, I am not a fan of any political power in Syria, but as Syrian would wish for all commentators that commented on the subject to listen in ARABIC to the entire interview. They will at least in the first ten minutes realize that Israel interference in Syria stopped being Mossad like but actual aggression on our land. So give me a break.

  • Israeli and Lebanese Armies Trade Fire; at least 4 Dead
    • No, they are not just now telling they fired first. They said that from second one and on major television stations viewed all over the world. Yes, they fired IN THE AIR when the israeli did not listen to the voice of reason and stop with their bulldozers and clarified their intentions in a disputed area. No, they don't have 911, and vuvuzelas don't work as well. The UNIFIL made it clear that they can't intervene in cases of aggressive behavior towards them. Beirut and Nasralla don't want this to spiral should actually make it clearer for you. Jerusalem was just building its first block toward a possible future aggression, and air strikes and bombs are enough for that.

    • A lone lebanese gunman (or two) loosing their cool would not prompt an immediate Israeli show of military might with air strikes and bombs if that is not their intention to begin with. Unless all these Israeli fighter jet pilots and their commanders lost their cool too.

  • 40 Killed in Bombings of Shiite Pilgrims in Iraq;
    Constitutional Crisis Unfolds
    • Yes these bombing might make Al-Maliki look weak and undermine his claim for a second term, but could it also be a message to Al-Sadr not to try to join Allawi to cast Al-Malaki out after the two Sadr and Allawi meat in Damascus? And could the second bombing be a message to Allawi not to do the same? Who is backing Al-Maliki so fiercely? Is he the only one that can turn a blind eye on Israel jets flying over Iraq?
      And i am not sure what channel senator McCain is watching. "we won that war"? God, I can only imagine how we are being hated more and more ever day and with every bomb. Senator McCain, would these bombs and killings have happened if it wasn't for our war? Just because you cant hear the bombs and see the bodies, that doesn't mean they don't exist. Yes the war is still on Senator McCain.

  • Palin on the Ground Zero Mosque vs. the Founding Fathers
    • I second Anthony"s comment. Ignorance of the fact that Islam and the billions that practice it have nothing to do with 9/11 can be overcome by education. The idea of just building a symbol of islam on ground zero might just keep an association that should not exist. It might take generations to dissociate the two and correct the damage done by misinformation. Meanwhile, nothing speaks louder than the education you are generously providing through your posts, books and teaching. Thank you.

  • World Condemns Brutal Israeli Assault on Humanitarian Convoy
    • Our president and goverment are waiting for investigations? By whom? Israel? We have seen where that goes. Our president who's an activist for human rights would still fear even a condemnation statement after such a provacation from Israel. And to keep thinking he is going to take a stand once and for all. Continuing settelments was not enough defiance by israel. This is an in your face to Obama on a personnal level.

  • Israeli Commandos Kill as Many as 10-16 Aid Activists,
    wound over 50 as they Board, Capture Gaza Aid Flotilla
    • If we want to know if a country is truly democratic shouldn't we take a look at it's freedom of press? Not even one tv station dared to report what the associated press is had repoted. CNN had couple of minutes of missinformation about the attack hours after it happened. Someone please tell me if we can say we live in a democratic united states without freedom of press being part of it. Thank you.

  • In honor of Earth Day: Green Guide for Muslims
    • This would be a good time to read more on Islam, the midde east and it's history with the west. Tomorrow is "Give your loved one a book and a rose day". Happy book day.
