I denounce the brutal murder of Steven Sotloff and the Syrian Muslim journalist Bassam Raies. As a father of a beautiful son, I send both families my sincerest condolences and my heat is pained at their loss. There is no dilemma in denouncing ISIS. They are, as the Prophet (sa) said, “The worst of creation” and “The dogs of Hell.” As a journalist, he is protected by international law and covenants that are binding on those God has given authority. His mother’s passionate please showed that she understands Islam better than ISIS and its leadership and many rabid folks who cloak their sicknesses with the garments of religiosity.
Earlier today, Ghazi Hamad, a senior Hamas leader told Al Jazeera it would not accept continued Israeli operations during the humanitarian truce, which has since been officially ended by the Israeli army.Hamad said: “Israelis have violated the ceasefire but there was no reaction from Hamas. If Israel continues to violate the ceasefire I don’t think anyone can control the Palestinian organisations.
