On April 25, 2020 (Sha’ban 07, 1441) the Crescent International, a monthly newsmagazine from Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT) led by Canadian Muslim scholar and Imam Zafar Bangash, published an article about the possible origin of the Corona virus (COVID-19).
Here are excerpts from the article “From 9/11 to Covid-19: al-Shaytan [Satan] does not Sleep” written by “Abu Dharr” (pen name):
The whole world is abuzz with news and analyses about the Corona virus (Covid-19). The mainstream media talking-heads are stuffing our heads and plugging our ears with all sorts of scenarios about how dangerous this vicious virus is – potentially devastating the lives of millions of people around the world. All of this is reminiscent of the hullabaloo that accompanied September 11, 2001 with all its panic panorama and scare tactics…
Far away from the carefully crafted replica reporting on this Corona virus, the Islamic Republic of Iran stands out for having an excessive and disproportionate number of officials contaminated by this virus…
Would it be challenging common sense to speculate that a very small drone, flying under the radar, and remotely controlled by technicians in Zionist, American, or Arabian [Saudi Arabia] military bases, hovers over the residence or parliament or any other meeting place of officials of the Islamic Republic, and then releases a type of Corona virus that trickles down into the target area where the individual(s) is and he then unknowingly becomes a victim of the virus? The drone then flies back or self-destructs and no one has proof of anything. Is this type of germ warfare disallowed by Mossad [Israel’s intelligence agency], the CIA [US’s intelligence agency], or MI6 [UK’s intelligence agency]? Of course not. This is their line of work…
Verily, he [al-shaytan] [Satan] and his corresponding personas are lying in wait for you where you cannot perceive them. [Quran, Chapter] Al-An‘am, [verse] 27
The Crescent International newsmagazine
In the section About Us the Crescent International newsmagazine states:
The Crescent International newsmagazine, published from Toronto… had been established as a local community paper in the 1970s, and by the end of the decade, was edited by Zafar Bangash… Produced by a small editorial team led by Zafar Bangash, under the guidance of Kalim Siddiqui, Crescent International published incisive current affairs analysis charting the impact of the Islamic Revolution on the rest of the Muslim world, and the West’s response to it… Crescent International continues to be published to this day, as a monthly magazine, still promoting a global Islamic movement perspective on current affairs based on the ideas of Dr. Kalim Siddiqui… It is now managed by an editorial team consisting of Zafar Bangash (who is also now Director of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought – ICIT), Imam Muhammad al-Asi and Afeef Khan.
What is Crescent International?
We are a magazine that attempts to reflect the global Islamic movement’s perspective on current affairs through deconstructing imperialism, exposing shallowness of relativist/secular and materialistic thought and confronting oppression within the Qur’anic legal and philosophical framework. Nothing more, nothing less. We are a publication not working within the secular/Western narrative of what journalism should be….
At CI [Crescent International], we do not compromise with imperialism and those who want to subjugate Islam to imperialist and secular norms. We are open to every reasonable disagreement and perspective, but we will never peddle the Zionist and imperialist narrative, even if it comes from sincere, but misinformed people.
