United Muslims of WA is a new group formed to try and bring the various Muslim communities and schools of thought together so that we can learn from each other and love each other (Quran 5:48). Our goal is to bring the different schools of thought (sects) together in spite of our differences and to address issues of common concerns such as discrimination against and persecutions of, Muslims.
Below is the resolution of condemnation of a viciously anti-Shia alliance of religious and political leaders of Indonesia whose recent meeting and call to destroy Shia belief “by all means necessary” is no less than a call to genocide which has the potential of spreading worldwide.
The copy of the resolution is followed by copies of letters mailed to the President of the United States and the President of Indonesia. Similar letters were also mailed to the Secretary-General of the UN and the Indonesian Ambassador to the US.

Dear Mr. President,
On April 30th 2014, members of the United Muslims of Washington issued a statement of condemnation of the “Anti-Shia Alliance” conference in Indonesia. This is a particularly dangerous because it has the blessing of major Muslim organizations in Indonesia, the participation and encouragement of the Governor of West Java and the encouragement because of their inaction, by the Government of Indonesia. In effect, this creates an atmosphere of the pre-genocide days of Rwanda except that this call to destroy Shia Muslims has the prospect of spreading throughout the world. Continue reading

Dear Director Comey,
It was with envy and more than a little dismay, that I read the text of your speech at the ADL National Leadership Summit in Washington, DC.,
Envy because a minority group is so well-organized that people of all stripes and ranks visit them and talk at their meetings while heaping praise on the minority group’s works. As a Muslim, I am quite envious of the respect you gave to the ADL, because we haven’t even had the FBI give so much as the time of day to CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), the only effective Muslim organization that looks after our civil rights. Please note, I am not a member of CAIR, but it has my wholehearted support..
To be sure, there are back-door approaches between the FBI and CAIR but that is demeaning to us Muslims. Rather like the old days when Blacks were met at the back door, while Continue reading
How does this happen?
A few days ago, a friend sent me a link to a YouTube video that turned my stomach. It showed some Pathans (Pashtuns, Taliban, take your pick) with several severed heads that they displayed by holding them by the hair, then they dropped the heads and kicked them around like soccer balls, giggling and laughing as they did so.
My first reaction was of utter disgust, I turned it off. Then I replayed it and paused it at different points and thought about it and suddenly I no longer saw animals, fanatical brutes doing inhuman things to their victims, I saw something entirely different; I saw a worldwide problem that gives life to such.
The people holding the severed heads were no older than children, they giggled in a childish way when they kicked the heads around…they WERE children! These children were doing horrific things, probably shutting their minds to the reality of what they were doing, but doing them in order to be “In”, to belong to their group, rather than to risk being “Out”. The scene was not much different from a school bullying scene where the bullies do the bad things, a few kids join them to be among the ‘in” crowd and others remain silent because they do not wish to stand out or, to be rejected. The fact that they were Muslim, had nothing to do with the matter, they had been manipulated and controlled by the fanatics, they were no different from the child soldiers of Congo, Liberia, Angola and Uganda for whom the entire “Civilized” world shows compassion and care and whom the entire “Civilized” world wants to reform and rehabilitate. But these were kids that the entire “Civilized” world wants to kill in any way they can, utilizing Drones, special Forces and even the armed forces of the host nations (Pakistan, Afghanistan etc.,) to slaughter them with impunity…”in order to keep the world safe” they say.
How did these children come to such a state of affairs and what can be done for them? Continue reading
- Portuguese lawmakers who drafted the country’s law on Sephardic Jews rejected calls to naturalize the descendants of Muslims who were expelled, citing the fact that the expulsion of the Muslims was part of a war to end the occupation of Spain by North African invaders.“Persecution of Jews was just that, while what happened with the Arabs was part of a conflict,” Jose Ribeiro e Castro, a Spanish lawmaker who drafted Portugal’s law of return, said. ”There’s no basis for comparison.”
