"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Israel or Palestine? “My Home!”

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.
Watch the video!
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 Continue reading

America, where only citizens are human?

PLEASE call your Senators and your House Representatives and TELL them to oppose the entire Defense Authorization Bill until the bigots remove the sections that permit the military to indefinitely hold ANYONE, without charges, without civilian trial.
 
Some people make things happen…some people talk about things that happened…some people wonder what happened.
Which one are you? Continue reading

If Muslims did what others do…

I published a story, “Detroit Muslims force women to sit in the back of buses” a few days ago, it was not correct, I had in fact, changed a few words that then affected the perspective of the story in a different manner. The actual headline was: “At Front of Brooklyn Bus, a Clash of Religious and Women’s Rights” from a New York Times story and it was about the use of a private, but publicly-funded busline for the Orthodox Jewish Community of Brooklyn.

My motivations for sending out the changed story were to find out how people (Muslims and non-Muslims) would react to Muslims doing such a thing and how differently this story would be viewed BECAUSE Muslims were thought to be doing such a thing in this land of “Freedom and Democracy”. My point was Continue reading

9-11; the Facts, the Fiction and the Emotions

Today is the ninth anniversary of the terrible tragedy that we call 9-11. There are observances all over the world, people crying as they recall their lost loved ones or, that terrible day.

In these sincere, honest expressions of pain, there are also expressions of people whose hate of Islam and Muslims is so consuming that for them, there is no other reality except that Islam and Muslims are Continue reading

Profiling: Anti-Muslim training at our Police Departments

I have been saying for some time, that our Military, Police, FBI and CIA are being steeped in fear and suspicion of Islam and Muslims. This takes forms of “Recommended Reading” Lists provided to them during and after their training…and on the lists are books such as “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam” by Robert Spencer, books by “experts” on Islam and terrorism, like Daniel Pipes and a host of other bigots who make a lot of money spreading their venom against Islam and Muslims.

Additionally, “experts” are hired by the military, the FBI, the CIA and often, paid for, by Department of Homeland Security (I call it “Fatherland Security”) funds. These “experts” got to their fame and fortune by spreading fear and hate against Islam and Muslims, by “quoting” enough out-of-context snippets from the Quran to make their case before naïve audiences who do not seek to verify the “quotes”…if they did, they would know them to be false!

These days, it is enough to speak loud and long about how Muslims are predisposed to violence and how they are easily recruited as suicide bombers…and then move on to talking about Muslims, Muslims and MUSLIMS, so that by the time these “experts” are done, another cadre of fully-armed guardians of the nation, is ready and willing to nab the last “Muzlem“!

Norway Massacre; a Symptom or the Disease?

We have all mourned the tragedy of the children slaughtered on Norway by Anders Breivig, a right-wing Christian terrorist. Muslims heaved a sigh of relief that this man was not a “Muzlem“, as everyone believed at first, but a REAL, “homegrown Terrorist”, i.e., a Christian. Some of us Muslims, have taken great pains to point out that Breivig is NOT a Muslim and conversation has been place on the front burner, that Christians…non-Muslims…are just as capable of butchery as Muslims.

In the next few days, there will be endless acknowledgments that yes, we must also be wary of Christian right-wing extremists as we are of Muslim extremists and that terrorism is not a monopoly after all. There will also be the inevitable, “yes, BUT…” and people will start to point at Muslims again and eventually, the conversation that remains, will once again, focus on Muslims and on Islam.

Norway Slaughter; Give Muslims a Break!

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. Continue reading

Israel; Jewish State/Two-State

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” Continue reading

Southwest Airlines and Institutional Bigotry

Bigotry against Muslims and Islam has become so institutionalized that barely any notice is given when the fig-leaf of “Security” is used to hide behind and bash Muslims.

Last week a young female Muslim student was removed by Police from a Southwest flight on orders from the Captain of the craft. The Captain was reacting to his flight stewardess who said she was “uncomfortable” with the Muslim woman because she was wearing a hijab and the stewardess had heard her say, “It’s a go” in her cell phone just before boarding. Continue reading

What is happening to my America?

With great fanfare, Republican House Representative from New York’s 3rd Congressional District, Peter King, who is also the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, convened a hearing with the title: “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and That Community’s Response.”.
 

Republican Representative Peter King at the "Hearings"

 
There are so many ironies in this entire charade that we could all die laughing, if it were not so deathly serious.
Rep. King is the same man who was an ardent and activist supporter of the terrorist Irish Republican Army, so much so, that when he was the Grand Marshall leading a St Patrick’s Day parade in New York, the Irish Republic refused to join the parade, as had been the tradition, citing King’s terrorist sympathies and work for the IRA.
Referring to the civilian killings by the IRA in Northern Ireland, King said at the time, “If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the IRA for it“.
As recently as the 2010 elections, Peter King’s political opponent in the Congressional race, called King “A Terrorist Collaborator“, citing his support for the IRA. It is a shameful commentary on the electorate, that King still won. Continue reading
