Islamic State is Islam's No. 1 Enemy

Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh (left), the highest religious authority in the country, said on Tuesday the militant groups Islamic State and al Qaeda were "enemy number one of Islam" and not in any way part of the faith. In fact, he had declared all jihadist groups apostates and enemies of the true interpretation of Islam
 
And this comes from ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia which endorses an extreme interpretation of Wahhabi Sunni Islam. They support execution by beheading for offences that include apostasy, adultery and sorcery, oppose women driving or working and describe Shias as heretics.
 
And they should be worried about the blood-lusting jihadists because the latter subscribe to violent revolt and Saudi Arabia will not be spared. After all, I did publish a post at this link http://helpvictor.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-kaaba-purportedly-under-isis-threat.html that purportedly even labeled other Muslims “stone-worshippers”! These madmen will certainly pose a threat even to their co-religionists.
 
Already Saudi Arabia have identified the Islamic State, al Qaeda, Nusra Front and other militant groups as 'terrorist' in March and long prison terms await those who support or offer moral or material aid to these psychos.
 
But Malaysia is quiet on this front.
 
We all know Najib Razak had already expressed a wish that UMNO emulate ISIS but since then, ISIS have become IS and they are even more dangerous than before!
 
The Prime Minister has to speak out against IS – otherwise many more Malaysians are going to take his advice and travel to Iraq and Syria to follow IS and inevitably, they will return to wage war here!
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
On Saturday, the Liverpool-Southampton game kept the former’s fans very nervy because it was an unconvincing start of the EPL season for the Reds.
 
Against Southampton, the absence of that constant menace up front – the rare talent who can create something out of nothing and win matches almost single-handedly – was glaring!
 
Still, there were some signs of a more ruthless streak emerging as Raheem Sterling converted the game's first meaningful chance (23) and Daniel Sturridge got the winner with his only clear-cut opportunity (79) to give their team a 2-1 win over the Saints..
 
Liverpool will have to improve dramatically if they desire to finish in the top 4. Notice I am not even talking about us winning the EPL title or expect them to repeat their second-place finish last season! I am still adamant that it was a fatal mistake to let Luis Suarez go and we are certainly going to struggle. Results will be hard to come by unless Lady Luck endears herself to Liverpool.
 
Haven’t you read that Brendan Rodgers demands the goals to come from every player? He believes it is more important than ever for the goalscoring burden to be shared following the departure of prolific striker Luis Suarez. Yup, he is very worried!
