Hosein
A very interesting and sane analysis from a surprising (to me) source.
HELEN-do not be surprise Sheik Imran Hosein got deep knowledge of religions and politics. Thanks Saker for interview.
This esteemed scholar is perhaps my favorite Islamic intellectual of all.
Also, I support his views on how the Islamic World needs to right a wrong and return Constantinople back to the Eastern Orthodox people and Russia in particular. The conquest of that city and Ottoman wars against our Slavic brothers was a black mark on Islamic history, because it was a war of aggression and Islam forbids such.
I pray mainstream Islamic World and the Eastern Orthodox Russia build a powerful bond without delay. Amen.
Fully agree with you on Constantinopole….it should be return to Estern Orhodox Church and it will be one day as true friend of Russia -Muslim type of Sheik Hosein/Kadyrov emerge in totally independent Turkey…..
Nigel Farage is stepping down as leader of Ukip, saying he has done his bit for the cause of Britain leaving the EU.
Speaking at a press conference in Westminster, he said he had fulfilled his political ambitions after successfully campaigning for the UK to vote for Brexit.
“During the referendum I said I wanted my country back … now I want my life back,” Farage said on Monday.
It is the third time he has resigned as Ukip leader, but he dismissed the idea of coming back again in the future and claimed standing as an MP was no longer top of his bucket list.

All the day’s developments as Osborne proposes corporation tax cut and a legal challenge is mounted to block article 50 without act of parliament
Farage, 52, was originally leader from 2006 to 2009 and came back to the job after the 2010 election, overseeing the rise of Ukip from a fringe single-issue party to a major political force. He then stepped down after the 2015 election, only to “unresign” just days later, as he wanted to lead Ukip’s campaign to leave the EU.
The MEP on Monday insisted this resignation was for good but raised the prospect of taking some role in negotiating Britain’s exit from the EU, saying he “might have something to give”.
Farage now ‘resigns’ (or is forced out), as the anti-Brexit campaign gains steam.
What the British voters decided is immaterial, as the Brexit referendum results will be rolled back–by hook or by crook.
This is De-mock-cracy in action.
UKIP Leader Farage’s Resignation: Another Brexit Body Blow
One can read events in different ways, Thierry Meyssan, (and it appears Hosein) sees Brexit as a win for elements in the City of London. http://www.voltairenet.org/article192607.html
Meyssan’s second article on Foreign Policy does make more sense of recent British manoeuvers towards China than anything else I’ve seen yet.
This I found particularly intriguing: “While we know nothing of the contacts that the United Kingdom must have already made with Russia…….”
The leadership of Russia and China would have to be seriously deluded (or traitorous) to trust Britain’s supposed “turn away” from the USA and engagement with these two nations.
Britain is the same nation that has been a historic enemy of Russia and specialized in fomenting secessionist terror groups and insurgents to dismember Russia–not to mention waging its Opium War against China and stealing Hong Kong from it, among other acts of aggression.
If Thierry Meyssan believes that Perfidious Albion is sincere in rejecting the Americans, he is either very naive or is trying very hard to “sell” the credibilty of an alleged British geopolitical shift.
The phrase “double agent” comes to mind in this situation.
So does “trojan horse.”
Instead of being an American Trojan Horse in the European Union, Britain will now act as an American Trojan Horse in the broader Eurasian continent itself….
I don’t think that sincerity comes into it. Britain is, and has been, all those things that you say, and far worse, but there is no loyalty at that level of political discourse. It is foolish to expect such— there is only the pursuit of particular interests.
Meyssan might be wrong but I doubt he is naïve.
The writing is on the wall for the US hegemony, interests and alliances are inevitably going to change whether we like it or not. I find it more realistic to acknowledge that than pine for certainties that are definitely in the past and not coming back.
You are simply wrong. Brexit will take place. Don’t believe the western controlled mass media hype. You are allowing yourself to be brain boxed by them and the elites that despise you.
Yes I agree with Sheikh Imran’s views on almost everything and I’m amazed how he’s almost the only Muslim scholar studying eschatology (a lot of Arab scholars and just sleeping talking about the obvious prayer, charity, fasting and not connecting or applying all the knowledge we have to real life situations) … We are waiting for the right leader (Al Mahdi Insha’Allah) to restore the Muslim world to its glory and form the right alliances with our Orthodox God fearing Christian brothers
Do not forget the Messiah (PBUH) the Son of the Virgin Mary who will lead the Muslims as well!
The EU doesn’t have the same leverage over Britain that it had on Greece due to the fact that the former is not a part of the currency union (Euro). The ECB (European Central Bank) holds the purse strings for Greece, not so Britain.
Thank you Saker for posting this …
Indeed, thank you, Saker.
Didn’t know Sheikh Imran Hoesein either and he is a revelation himself to me
i Hope his dream about a COMING nuclear war which he already had 8 times within the last 2 years, won’t materialize.
Great interview. This Egypt affair seems to be very ominous… NATO to attack from Libya and Israel through Sinai? “The Holy Land shall be taken at all costs!”
Regarding the EU it’s not hard to see that it was a so called alpha/beta test. North America are certainly scheduled to have their own Union, introducing the “Amero” currency soon enough. The other scenario suggested was that both the euro and dollar must be collapsed in order to introduce one currency to both Europe and USA, but personally do not think that is in the cards yet with the cabal controlling them having so many other difficulties. They couldn’t manage to process “collapsing” currencies at the same time without risking everything.
Other Canadians can provide better info than me, but this came up about 20 years ago. No “Amero”, just the US dollar. :-) Thanks in large part to our plucky Québécois, the concept of a merger quietly slipped away – after giving new life to the separatist movement in Quebec. We have had a couple referendums here too. Québécois saved our Canadian bacon there, perhaps.
Is there a transcript for this. My internet is far too slow to watch this and I really like Sheik Imran Hosein’s views.
many thanks for posting! i am nominal member of anglican communion and west coast murkin population and a man “of certain memories” – ie old. The video is, I am sorry to say, unique in my experience. I am very impressed with the sheikh and his talk, and his wisdom!
i regard the extraction of eschatological wisdom from sacred texts as non-nonsensical reading of tea leaves – and have instead my own eschatological ideas derived by reading secular sources and by direct observation. I am astonished, therefore, to hear the esteemed gentleman recite for us a future that is very closely aligned with what my own logical (Marxist?) analysis strongly suggests.
Many years ago I desired to know the books of Moses in Hebrew…and got in touch with a Rabbi – a reform Rabbi…(!) and he himself, now retired, would, I believe, agree with the Sheikh!
And the two men seem to me nearly identical as learned good men, teachers, judges, sages. They read similar tea leaves…
I took particular interest in the idea that the saudi state has left the confession…
As does the Sheikh, so I too hope he’s mistaken about the n war… bless us all.
I didn’t know where else to post this, so it is here.

“What became clearer to me in the course of the three days of discussions in St Petersburg is precisely how vulnerable Russia is. Her Achilles Heel is the reigning ideology that controls every key economic post of the Government of the Russian Federation under Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Under the terms of the Russian Constitution adopted in the chaos of the Yeltsin years and enormously influenced, if not literally drafted, by Russia’s foreign IMF advisers, economic policy is the portfolio responsibility of the Prime Minister and his various ministers of Economics, Finance and so forth…
I made a transcript of the second part of this video – from point 12 :10 to about point 26 :10 – so you can read it.
I see repeated reports of warming relations between Russia and ISrael, often from SPutnik, the Russian newsagendy but also from public figures , and I wonder how seriously you take this, and what repercussions there are, given Russians envolvement in SYria, and perhaps you could also comment on Russia’s activities in SYria ?
Sheikh Imran Hosein
I’m happy that you raise that subject, Morris, because there are lots of people, particularly in the Arab world, who are confused. They’re confused because they’re getting reports from the media – in Russia – which indicate a warming of relations, a close relationship between Russia and Israel, and that seems to be incompatible with the other view of Russia : as a Russia which is standing up to the zionists.
The fact is, Morris, that Russia is a complex society ; there is a very powerful zionist presence in Russia, and the zionists are also present in the media. And they use the media to do all they possibly can do to brainwash people into believing that Russia is a great friend of Israel.
I don’t think it is correct to say that Russia is a great friend of Israel, because the Russians are not fools. They know that Israël was actively involved in prepearing the Georgian armed forces for the attempt that was made in 2008, to inflict a serious wound on Russia, Russia which had emerged from the collapse of the Sovjet Union and emerged out of the Boris Jeltsin years, out of the chaos. The russian armed forces were in disarray. And the western world used Georgia to test Russia, and Israel was up to its neck in involvement in Georgia, and the Russians responded to that attack from Georgia by delivering a profile that « we are not afraid of you, and we will not hesitate to use power » and they used power, and they used it courageously, and they used Chechen brigades, muslims ; the heart of the Russian armed forces which defeated the Georgians, OK, and gave them a bloody nose. The Russians are no fools, they know what Israël did in 2008, and they were able to teach them a lesson.
So what the Russians are doing, I believe, is, at the level of state-to-state relationships, they’re maintaining a polite relationship with Israel , yes, but that does not mean that Israël is an ally, not at all. There is no reason for Russia to adopt a hostile policy towards Israël , no. Look at how they have responded to the Turkish embarrassing apoligy. They reacted to the Turkish shooting down of the Russian aircraft very, very strongly. But as soon as the Turkish leader apoligized, OK, there is no reason why we should not have good relations with Turkey and Men defensive. This is the foreign policy of a very mature country, showing very great wisdom in conducting foreign policy. So, I’m not surprised of Russia having respectable ties with Israel, for the purposes of a red politic. That does not make Israel an ally of Russia.
Regarding Russia’s activities in Syria, namely their bombing the opposition forces, do you see this as a good policy ?
Sheikh Imran Hosein
The prophet blessing-be-upon-him prophesied that the great war will take place in that area, the north of Syria, the north of Irak. And so, it is possible that events are going to escalate, and that eventually an event will take place which will provoke an escalation in hostilities, and the great war can come in right there in the north of Syria.
The Russians had to intervene in Syria, there was no way they could prevent it, they had to do it, but they also had to intervene in Syria in such a way that they could sell their intervention to the Russian public opinion, and that the Russian public opinion will accept it. They have done that, they have done that ! They have acted very sensively, very intelligently in Syria, and they have been able to put a break on to the western design in Syria sofar.
Every single step they have taken sofar in Syria, has been very intelligent.
And I have to sit back in wonder and amazement of their maturity and intelligence of Russian foreign policy. I myself have learned new things about diplomacy by just watching the Russian foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, and how Putin is operating it.
So I don’t think that the Russians are going to be afraid or scared of continuing their intelligent policy.
They can not allow Isis or the Islamic State, they can not allow it to destabilize Russia, no, they can not allow it to succeed to such an extent as to be able to bring about a situation in Russia which would cause instability, no.
And they have Isis on the run now, they have Isis on the run.
And in bringing about forcing the Turkish government to apologize, and now restoring normal relations with Turkey, the Russians are now in a stronger position, because Turkey would not want to get back again in the bad books of Russia, no, that would make Turkey looking like a fool. Turkey is already looking like a big fool because they said they’ll never apoligize. And now they have apoligized.
So I think Russian foreign policy in Syria is correct and it is likely to continue on course until the western world decides « we’ve had enough » and we may have some big falls like to try to provoke a war.
Not to distant from the discussion of Syria is the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran : they seem to be fighting proxy wars in many countries. Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, probably more, Bahrain, where is this leading to, is the Muslim World tearing itself apart, is it not ?
Sheikh Imran Hosein
I don’t consider Saudi Arabia to be part of my Muslim world, no. For those who can’t see and who do not turn to the Quran for guidance, they may consider the Saudi regime to be a part of the Muslim world. I don’t.
The Quran is very plain and very clear ; and those who have been listening to me and reading my eschatalogy, would know that the Quran has spoken about an alliance of Christians and Jews, that the Quran anticipates what will come to be, that Judeo-christian Alliance has today coming to be a Zionist-Christian Allliance , and the Quran has prohibited Muslims, prohibited from maintaining friendship and alliance with that Judeo-Christian Alliance.
That Judeo-Christian Alliance controls power in Washington, in London, in Paris, in Bonn. NATO is his military arm, yes, and the Saudi’s are part and parcel of that Alliance. The Saudi’s are their shoe-shine-boys.
The Quran speaks and speaks very plainly and clearly and says whoever from amongst you Muslims turns to them with friendship and alliance, and you travel to Washington to play golf with Barack Obama, those Muslims who maintain that kind of relationship with that Judeo-Christian Alliance, which today is led by Washington, you no longer belong to the world of Islam, you have left the world of Islam.
So it’s not that the Saudi’s and the Iranians are at loggerheads with each other and that it shows a divided world of Islam, it’s not, because the Saudi’s no longer belong to the world of Islam, the people, yes, but not the regime. The (Saudi) regime has left Islam.
I think the (Saudi) regime is acting on behalf of NATO, on behalf of the zionist Alliance, in its policies towards Iran.
The mastermind which wants to deliver to Israel the ruling state of the world, the mastermind needs to provoke Sunni-Shia civil war in the House of Islam. And Sunni-Shia civil war, if it does take place, will not only present them the worst possible image of Islam to the world, but also weaken the world of Islam to resist to Israeli oppression.
What the Saudi’s are doing is : they are finding the flames of Sunni-Shia civil war, they are doing everything that they think they can possibly do to bring about Sunni-Shia civil war.
The Iranians were not too pleased with me when I said : as long as the Shah ruled over Iran, Sunni-Shia civil war in the House of Islam was not possible, not possible. In order for that larger objective to be realised, (the objective) of a Sunni-Shia civil war in the House of Islam in the end time, it was necessary to get rid of the Shah, and bring a Shia-regime to replace it. And so, when the revolution took place in Iran, while the western world ‘were’ publicly – overtly opposing it, I have argued that they were secretly welcoming it. And that didn’t go down too well in Iran, no, but it is the truth .
And, what the Saudi’s are now doing, is finding the flames of a Sunni-Shia civil war.
And the one thing that probably will bring succes – will (indeed) provoke a Sunni-Shia civil War – is : if the Saudi’s could do something or the zionists could do something which will provoke Iran into attacking the Arabian peninsula.
What could that be ?
An Israëli launch(ed) air attack on Iran’s nuclear installations, yeah, and then Iran responds by launching an attack on Bahrain, anything like that, once the Iranians move across the water to attack the Arabian peninsula, you are going to have a Sunni-Shia civil war.
So you have to understand Saudi foreign policy now with respect to Iran based on this long-term objective of trying to provoke Sunni-Shia civil war in the House of Islam.
Because I’ve understood that policy, and I’m doing exactly the opposite, and the others who support me in this, we say : this is the moment in time, more important than ever before, to try to build and sustain a Sunni-Shia solidarity.
