Back to Bloging After a Long Break

In His Name, the Most High


After a long break from blogging I hope to now start blogging more regularly, and also - God willing - to restart my Audio (and possibly Video) podcast - “The Way of the Digital Martyr”.

There are many reasons for the break from blogging, but suffice it to say I became extremely busy within both my professional life as well as my personal life.

So stay tuned, and insha Allah lots more interesting and useful posts will appear :)

With prayers for your success,

With Salaams and Dua’s

In His Name, the Most High


Okay, so after a lot of work, I managed to get my blog running using Octopress, Github Pages, Jekyll all cooked using Ruby and initially tested on a Vagrant. Including importing my old posts from Wordpress. This series of blog posts will show you how to do what I did, and hopefully you find it useful and valuable.

Now, before we start, there are a few things you will need to do, and indeed a few items of software you will require to accomplish this task. I provide a list of what you will need in terms of software below (please note that my tutorial will generally work on all operating systems, but the instructions that are OS specific will generally be for Mac OS X. I will try and provide snippets for commands on operating systems such as Windows users, Linux or BSD but, I may not always be able to guarentee that they will work, so please be aware of that caveat.

Now, onto what you will require.

The Debate – Retaking al-Qusair (al-Qusayr) – Press TV – June 6, 2013

| Comments

Syrian government forces are going ahead with their mop-up operation in Qusayr after they regained full control of the strategic town. The troops were reportedly defusing on Wednesday explosive devices planted by the Takfiri militants fighting against the government in different parts of the town.

More than 200 pickup trucks carrying militants left the town and moved to a nearby village in the north of Qusayr. The government is trying to bring the town back to normal as soon as possible. Syrian military forces have dismantled the terrorist network of the foreign-backed militants in the strategic area, which borders Lebanon.

Qusayr has been an important center and supply route for the foreign-sponsored militants fighting against the Damascus government. The Syrian Army also reported that it has obtained documents confirming the role of Arab and non-Arab countries in the Syria crisis.

This episode of the Debate will take a look at the significance of retaking Qusayr.
