ALLAHU Akbar! Portrait of the Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) still stands luminously in the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Iraq’s Qaraqosh despite being nearly burnt to ash by Daesh. Looks like the Talmudic, Christ-hating terrorists couldn’t destroy everything, could they? Striking Star Salute to the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), most especially Harakat Hizbullah al-Nujaba and Kata’ib Hizbullah who spearheaded the offensive, for liberating Qaraqosh and preserving its sanctities. The commitment that the people, resistance movements and soldiers of Iraq have to upholding Islamic-Christian unity is, in and of itself, a dagger and a half, nay, TWO daggers right in both eyes of the Zionist New World Order.
For those buffoons who remain ignorant of just how much Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) means to Muslims, wake up and smell the Sea of Galilee’s freshwater! Not only is she one of Islam’s four greatest women alongside Lady Khadijah (A.S.), Lady Fatima (A.S.) and Lady Asiya (A.S.), she is the only woman mentioned in the Holy Qur’an by name. She’s brought up 34 times in fact and has an entire Surah, the 19th, named after her. As for her son, Jesus Christ The Messiah (A.S.), whom we refer to as ‘Isa al-Masih, he is the most revered prophet in Islam after Muhammad himself (S.A.W.W.) and is also cherished as the messiah who will return with Imam al-Mahdi (A.S.) in the latter days. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) designated Christ as his “spiritual brother” and at 187 times mentioned either directly by name or indirectly, Jesus is also referred to in Islam’s Holiest Book more so than any other prophet. And in the icing on the cake, when it comes to Christians generally speaking, Surat al-Ma’idah’s 82nd Ayah says very bluntly that while Jews and pagans are closest to us in enmity, Christians are closest to Muslims in brotherhood because they are not arrogant and there are priests as well as monks among them.
So as per Islamic doctrine, it really couldn’t be simpler: He who defends Christians and those figures that they (and we) hold dearest, i.e. Mary and Jesus, is a Muslim. He who oppresses Christians and those figures that they (and we) hold dearest, i.e. Mary and Jesus, is not a Muslim. Iraqis, and especially the Shi’a Islamic Resistance groups who comprise the strongest forces in the PMU, have this equation down pat. ISIS and other Takfiris however, lost in their own Judaized perversions, are as daft on the matter as they are barbaric. These terrorists and killers are no more representative of Islam than the neocon-stooge George Bush is representative of Christianity. And ultimately, the Wahhabi mercenaries’ aggressions and distortions are of no consequence.
Because just as the Virgin Mother Maryam (A.S.) is unscathed here in Qaraqosh, before we know it Mosul will be liberated and the flags of Iraq and its Resistance fighters, who will be chanting “Ya Maryam (A.S.)! Ya ‘Isa (A.S.)!” as they burst into the city’s center, will sky high where the satanic banners of the Christ-haters once were. And then a new era of Muslim-Christian Co-Resistance shall begin, in full rejection of International Zionism and all those soulless, spineless miscreants who serve it. #LongLiveIraq #WeAreOneHand
