Congressman Jim McDermott of Washington’s 7th Congressional District, has signed the pledge to protect ALL minorities against bigotry and we just received it. In signing this pledge, Jim is joined by:
Jay Inslee (Candidate for Governor), Rob McKenna (Candidate for Governor), Adam Smith (Incumbent Candidate for 9th District House of Congress) and Darshan Runiyer (Candidate for 1st District, House of Congress).
Dr. Fai (see his letter at the bottom) has been jailed for supporting the free Kashmir movement (a “Trrrrst” organization).
This is typical of US hypocrisy that is driven by short-term goals and by who is more involved in influence and voting in the US. Thus, in Israel-Palestine, the Israeli Jews are the angels while the Palestinians (Israeli or OT) are the devils; in Indo-Pak, India is presumed to “own” Kashmir and Indians are the angels, while the Pakistanis and the Kashmiris are the “trrrrsts” and the devils. So it continues, Bahrain, Iraq, Iran, anytime one wants to see where the US support is going in a conflict, just look for which side the US is supporting…and one will also know which side is actually in the wrong…the US-supported side.
I received the letter from Dr. Fai in which he also gives his mailing address and I sent him a brief letter of support in the mail, Read more »
There is so much mythology and fantasy around the so-called “Sharia Law” that a large number of states have now been involved in either passing laws against “Sharia Law” (under various euphemisms) or, have been involved in voting for the “ban” or, are currently discussing methods to ban “Sharia Law”( Map below is as of March 2012).
Going into details of Sharia and its application would require a separate, detailed article however, it is worth point out a few basic facts about Sharia and the hysteria being generated against it in the West, led by the US.
Sharia is a composite Read more »
The ads say, “Take the Pepsi Challenge!”, what they mean is that you will be presented with two drinks, you will not know which is which and you have to say which one you like; the assumption being, that you will select Pepsi because it is a better drink.
Don’t take the Pepsi Challenge when it comes to Justice in America because you will lose.
Consider the following comparison of two events occurring within a couple of days from each other… Read more »
“Another innocent person killed by a Crazy”…at least, that is what most uninvolved people will think as they move on to their daily chores and pursuits.
Muslims in America on the other hand, will see the brutal killing of this Iraqi Muslim woman in California, as one more piece of convincing evidence that America IS gearing up to a genocidal state of mind, towards Muslims.
No, thankfully, not ALL Americans are filled with hate and fear towards Muslims, but it does not take ALL members of any group, to ignite the fires of hate-driven violence, it only takes a small, loud percentage, abetted by the silence of the large majority who don’t want to upset the routines of their lives, by getting involved.
No, not ALL Republicans are such monsters, not ALL Tea-Party members are filled with this hate towards Islam and Muslims and not ALL Democrats support such hate. But certainly ALL Republicans, ALL Tea Partiers and ALL Democrats, are guilty of at least being default supporters because of their silence.
And ALL Americans are involved in this hate-machine because Read more »
“I wish I were fighting for Pakistan rather than for the US and I would like my son to be fighting and killing for Pakistan in the Pakistan Army“.
I can already see at least one hysterically paranoid person getting ready to string me up from the nearest lamp-post and a Hell of a lot of other REAL Americans getting mad at me. I can also see a lot of very sincere Americans…reasonable people all, wondering if I have taken leave of my senses and then, wondering what I am doing in the US.
Let’s add the the mix….
What if I then contributed $1000 to Jay Inslee or his opponent-to-be, Rob McKenna. Any bets that my money would be thrown back at me faster than a red-hot brick? they would also condemn my stand and tell me unequivocally, that I should leave this country if my heart and loyalties are so passionately with the country of my birth, Pakistan.
At the same time, I would be pilloried for being an untrustworthy “Muzlem” and I would be used to point out how Muslims are here to undermine this, so free, land of “Judeo-Christian values”. Read more »
This is a small part of the well-known story of two families, a Jewish one and a Muslim one, who are rooted in the same land…in the same house.
I don’t believe there will ever be peace on “The Holy Land” as long as the game being played is a zero-sum game; “I cannot win unless you lose”.
Almost every Jews in Israel lives on land that has been stolen in some form or another and they justify it as the fulfillment of God’s promise to the Jews. God has been used as the ultimate justifier in every atrocity that we can think of, from the current Muslim-on-Muslim slaughters Read more »
Pakistan. Newsflash that more people have been killed in Karachi, shot in sectarian attacks. Areas of Karachi are “no-go” for Pathans (Pashtuns) and other areas are “no-go” for Urdu-speaking (“Muhajirs”).
The ethnic battles are fired and fuelled by ethnic-political leaders who are in regional government and have employed thugs to create greater rifts between ethnic people in order to be more powerful within their own ethnic groups.
Hate and Fear are universal in creating leadership.
Pakistan’s ethnic splits occur between Pathans, Punjabis, Sindhis, Mohaijrs and Baloch…all fired and fuelled by Read more »
I opened today’s (July 23, 2011) Seattle Times and their second headline regarding the Oslo bombing is, “Official says no link to terrorists; death toll attack could rise“.
The anti-Muslim hysteria in the West has degenerated so far that a man who kills over NINETY people has “no link to terrorists“, but a Muslim who tries to board a flight is already deemed a “terrorist”. Even if the headline came on a feed, The Seattle Times could use its own judgment (Horrors!) and re-write the same headline as, “Official says no link to organized terrorists; death toll attack could rise“.
It appears that when it comes to Muslims, the Seattle Times could spare the extra thought to help not skew opinions against us. As a newspaper, I would have hoped that their consciousness would be made well aware of the current anti-Muslim hysteria and the paper would be going out of their way to avoid promoting it.
Then again, perhaps we are expecting too much. Read more »
It looks like everything with regard to Israel, turns into an existential issue…”if this is allowed then it will doom Israel/Jews”, Blind Supporters of Israel seem to say. Others, who wish to support Israel and Jews are placed in the difficult situation of seeming to reject Israel (and therefore, Jews) or, underwriting Israel’s high-handedness and atrocities.
For decades, Israel has been asking and then demanding that the world recognize Israel as a legitimate state with most takers from Europe and Americas…a guilt-decision by the very nations that permitted or participated in the Shoah against Jews during WWII.
Now that there is explicit or, implicit recognition by almost every country in the world, Israel has ratcheted its demand up by several notches, it now demands that Israel be recognized as a JEWISH state; a state by Jews, for Jews and of Jews…clearly cleansed of the “Palestinian Problem” or, “the Demographic Bomb” Read more »
