Maduro: US pushes military plans under humanitarian cover-up

“The humanitarian crisis is nothing but a cover-up for military plans of the Trump government,” said Maduro at a rally gathering signatures against US interference in the country’s domestic affairs. The Venezuelan president vowed to “defeat the US coup attempt," saying Venezuelans are united in the face of American attempts to undermine the country’s sovereignty. “I have just signed the petition supporting the peace, the sacred sovereignty of Venezuela, the right to independence and self-determination of the Venezuelan people. Empire, hands off Venezuela! Venezuela deserves respect," said Maduro. The Venezuelan president also lashed out at Trump for trying to hamper a peaceful settlement of the crisis. “President Donald Trump has been trying to destroy the noble initiative of dialogue, suggested by Uruguay and Mexico with the support of the Caribbean Community, aimed at peaceful solution and launch of dialogue in Venezuela,” he said. Earlier on Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed Washington’s military ambitions in Venezuela, saying the US has illegitimately called for mutiny among the Latin American country’s military. The US has staunchly backed Venezuela’s self-proclaimed “interim president” Juan Guaido after Maduro was sworn in for a second term in January after winning an election boycotted by the opposition. Guaido, the head of the National Assembly, declared himself president on January 23. Washington has threatened to use military force in the country, with US officials saying “all options are on the table” against Caracas. Speaking on Thursday, Washington’s special envoy on Venezuela Elliott Abrams said the time for dialogue with Maduro had “long passed” and that no talks would be accepted other than for his “departure”. The US has since confiscated Venezuelan state assets in America, including a subsidiary of the Venezuelan state oil company, to channel them to Guaido.   ‘Peaceful settlement’ On Thursday, representatives from more than 10 European and Latin American countries held a meeting in Uruguayan capital of Montevideo to seek a solution to the crisis. At a joint presser, European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and Uruguayan Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa stressed that the Venezuelan issue should be settled in a peaceful way instead of using violence. Outside the venue of the meeting, a protest rally was held by local residents opposing foreign interference in Venezuela’s internal affairs. The protesters said Venezuelan people have the right to decide their future. Earlier, Uruguay and Mexico unveiled a four-step proposal, the “Montevideo Mechanism”, to bring Venezuela's disputing parties closer to the negotiating table. The first step calls for immediate dialogue to create conditions for direct contact between President Maduro and the right-wing opposition led by Guaido.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
