Eid Al-Fitr 2014: USA, Canada celebrate Eid on Tuesday
Eid Al-Fitr 2014 Will be Celebrated by Muslims in USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia and many other places are going to celebrate this occasion in a big way. But many people will celebrate it on Tuesday if crescent moon is not sighted later today.
But not everyone in United States will be celebrating the occasion as Fiqh Council of North America, an ISNA sub group has decided to celebrate the occasion much in advance based on astronomical location of the moon. The Fiqh Council of North America had announced the date of Eid and Ramadan much in advance.
But this has created fissures among Muslims of the United States many of whom believe that they need to see the new crescent moon by their naked eyes as has been the norm since the days of Prophet Muhammad. But ISNA and many other organizations and groups , who are of the Belief that Islam is an Old Religion , and it needs some amendments , and for that the unwanted confusion caused by the sighting of the moon in traditional ways is avoidable by using the technology that was not available during the time of the Prophet , while the Majority of the Muslims are still of the Belief that the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH , Had Ultimate Knowledge and anything said and done by him is Ultimate and final for all the ages to come.

JNN 12 July 2014 Baghdad : ISIS Takfiri Terrorist who overran Mosul last month have demolished ancient shrines and Graves of the Prophets revered By Iraqi Sunni and Mosques Used by the Iraqi Shia in and around the historic northern Iraqi city, residents and social media posts said Saturday.
At least two Graves of the Prophets of Islam , four shrines to Sunni Arab or Sufi figures have been demolished, while six Shiite mosques, or Husseiniyahs ( Imambargah ) , have also been destroyed, across militant-held parts of northern Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital.
Pictures posted on the Internet by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) showed the Sunni and Sufi shrines were demolished by bulldozers, while the Shiite mosques and shrines were all destroyed by explosives.
The photographs were part of an online statement titled “Demolishing shrines and idols in the state of Nineveh.”
Takfiri terrorists of so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has destroyed the grave of Prophet Younus ‘Jonah’ (P.B.U.H) after getting control of some parts of Mosul Iraq.
Local residents confirmed that the buildings had been destroyed and that terrorists had occupied two cathedrals as well.
“We feel very sad for the demolition of these shrines, which we inherited from our fathers and grandfathers,” said Ahmed, a 51-year-old resident of Mosul.
“They are landmarks in the city.”
An employee at Mosul’s Chaldean cathedral said terrorists had occupied both it and the Syrian Orthodox cathedral in the city after finding them empty.
They removed the crosses at the front of the buildings and replaced them with the Islamic State’s black flag, the employee said.
Christians are also worried about their holy places as the ISIS insurgents destroyed the statue of the virtuous Miriam in the churches.
In Iraq, there are nearly 12 ancient archaeological sites and Nineveh province has lots of archaeological landmarks, temples and other historical sites. One of the most famous is a shrine for Prophet Yunus (Jonah).
ISIS-led terrorists overran Mosul last month and swiftly took control of much of the rest of Nineveh, as well as parts of four other provinces north and west of Baghdad, in an offensive that has displaced hundreds of thousands and alarmed the international community.
But the Latest Scenario is that the Iraqi Forces and the Iraqi Volunteers have Jointly started an Operation Clean up in the Different Provinces and Districts and One By One they are re captured by them , and the ISIS terrorists are on the Run , even the Leader of the ISIS Abu Bakar has been severely injured in an attack by the Iraqi Air force Raid , and since then is on the Run , and there are very strong chances that he may not survive the injuries , and May succumb to his injuries.
The city, home to two million residents before the offensive, was a Middle East trading hub for centuries, its name translating loosely as “the junction.”
Though more recently populated mostly by Sunni Arabs, Mosul and Nineveh were also home to many Shiite Arabs as well as ethnic and religious minorities such as Kurds, Turkmen, Yazidis and other sects.

JNN 04 July 2014 London : A plan to train and equip a 100,000-strong Terrorist Force to defeat Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was drawn up by Britain, then scrapped as it was deemed too risky, BBC Newsnight reported on Thursday.
The alleged proposal, put forward two years ago, was the idea of General David Richards, then chief of Britain’s defense, according to the BBC.
The secret “extract, equip, train” militants at bases across Turkey and Jordan proposal was considered by Prime Minister David Cameron and the National Security Council, as well as U.S. officials, the BBC said, citing Whitehall sources.
As part of Richards’ proposal, the “substantial army” of moderate Syrian rebels would have been trained at bases in Turkey and Jordan.
Sources have also revealed that US military instructors trained Takfiri terrorists of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) at a secret base in Jordan in 2012. At least one of the ISIL training camps is in the vicinity of Turkish air base, Incirlik, which houses American personnel and equipment.
The United Nations says some 10.8 million people in Syria need assistance, of which 4.7 million are in hard-to-reach areas, while another three million have fled during the three-year uprising against Assad.
Some believe the opportunity to carry out such an initiative has been missed.
Professor Michael Clarke, of the Royal United Services Institute think tank, told the BBC: “We have missed the opportunity to train an anti-Assad force that would have real influence in Syria when he is removed, as he will be.
“I think there was an opportunity two or three years ago to have become involved in a reasonably positive way, but it was dangerous and swimming against the broader tide of history… and the costs and the uncertainties were very high.”
Some 400 British nationals are thought to be fighting in Syria, in what could constitute a crime under UK terrorism legislation.
And as a Backlash of such Plans and training now the Fears are growing that European militants trained and hardened in Syria may carry out terrorist attacks once they return home.
The West and its regional allies, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey are giving financial and military support to the militants.
