Interfaith visit to Israel

Every year across the US, the pro-Israel Jewish leaders run a campaign of getting Muslims to visit Israel (“The Holy Land!”) on an interfaith basis with Leaders from the Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities. Every year enough gullible Muslims can be found to validate the “interfaith-ness” of the tour for which they pay with their own money. The tours are guided, structured and little time is permitted for the visitors to actually do some digging of their own, into the miseries being suffered by Christian and Muslim Palestinians…those who are in Gaza, world’s largest Concentration Camp or, those on the West Bank who are surrounded by State-supported Jewish killers whose goal is to kill or terrorize the Christian and Muslim Palestinians out of Israel. People return from the trip hoping to have made an impression on their Jewish friends, that they are indeed, “moderate Muslims” while the right-wing Christians return with more fervor to help raise more money for Israel’s genocide of Palestinians. None of them are exposed to the dark underbelly of the Jewish state where Palestinians are battered, maimed and killed at will, by Israeli military their security services and their civilians.

I strongly believe that until Israel changes to a land where everyone can live in safety, peace and justice, Muslims should NEVER be a part of any “interfaith” delegation to that monstrous country.

This year is no different. Once again the Jewish leaders are on the move, recruiting gullible Muslims who sometimes borrow or scrape money to be a part of such an “interfaith” project. In Seattle area, this project is being led by Rabbi Jim Mirel. Yes, this is the same lovable Rabbi Jim Mirel who

The duty to protest…

CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations (USA) alerted me to a story exposing the Islamophobic library of the US Marine Corps. After reading it, I decided to write my own letter to the Secretary of Defense and the Commandant of US Marines (see below). Note the stamps I use on this letter, they all  carry an important message.

It is not enough to have an organization take on the fight, we, all of us, Muslim or not, must get off our duffs and add our voices to the protest against Humanity that we see regardless of who the victim may be at the time. Our silence not only marks us a cowards, it also lowers the importance of the fight any organization is picking up on our behalf. Then again, if we do not speak when the targets are others, who will speak for us? Sadly for us Muslims, it is only going to get worse and worse so the time to lend our voices is now.

Brainwashing and Blind Patriotism

I was having an online conversation with a US ex-soldier recently. It began with Billy Graham’s death and rapidly went down the chute to the invasion of Iraq and slaughters of Muslims in many of our “War!”-front countries. I held Billy Graham responsible for supporting genocidal wars and for supporting his son Franklin in spite of Franklin’s open hostility towards Muslims and Islam…genocidal hostility, I would add.

 

I could not help but notice his fierce defense of the Iraq Invasion (Billy G was a supporter of all wars) so I remarked that it is understandable for him to have such a stand because he had been brainwashed during training that Iraq invasion was an existential war and the Iraqis were Evil incarnate.

 

Such an attitude is not peculiar to US soldiers alone, the entire American population that supported the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, had been programmed into believing they were defending “our way of life”, that “The enemy” will stop at nothing, “They” will kill us all and will not rest until America has been destroyed and turned into a “Sharia state”.

There are still millions of Americans who believe “The enemy” is still out there, waiting to destroy “our way of life”. Those millions of people are still looking at Muslims in America as “Sleeper-Cells” waiting for the secret order from some unknown Grand Controller, to rise and kill all “Unbelievers”.

 

The power of brainwashing is deep and very long-lasting.

Collaborating with Nazis

Collaborating with Nazis.

How many times have I heard “Amin Al-Husseini, The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem” met with Hitler and that this was all the proof needed to show how Muslims collectively hate Jews and how Islam itself is against Judaism and Jews? So many times that I am sick of it. This “example” is used by those who wish to promote Islamophobia and by some, to defend Israel because any attack on Muslims and Arabs, is a defense in their minds, of Israel. There was no position of “Grand Mufti of Jerusalem” until the British created it to gather more control but let us not stand in the way of a successful hate-Islam campaign.

Nobody talks about other groups that also joined forces with the Nazis because to do so, would distract from the main aim of creating hate against Muslims, especially since the largest collaborators were Jewish. Continue reading

Kill all Muslims…and why not?

When leaders speak or promote hate speech, they embolden the existing bigots and they recruit the undecided-and-ignorant, to the ranks of Hate. This emboldens more people to join the hate-noise and before we realize it, Hate, anger and violence become accepted norms that are then available to be aimed at targeted communities, Muslims, in today’s world.

Today, we have the Chief Executive of the United States promoting hate against Muslims. Trump has tried to pass across-the-board ban against Muslims coming to the US from Muslim-majority countries (he has said Christians from the same countries would be okay), he has regularly said things against Muslims (“Islam hates us”) and today, he forwarded a Tweet from a British anti-Muslim hate-monger.

Republican Party, the New American Nazis?

Republicans, the Party of Hate.
What next? Brown shirts, Jack-boots and a hunt to cleanse “our White, Christian, Fatherland”?
 
NO. I refuse to accept that ANYONE is out there, not supporting the hate platform of the Republican Party and still calls himself/herself a Republican. If you are a Republican, you are a party to the hate against Muslims and Islam, you are a party to the hate against Hispanics, Blacks, LGBTQ and everyone else that the party of “Grab ’em by the p***y” hates.

An Ethical Dilemma and a Legal Problem…for Muslims!

You have a friend who was planning to join ISIS. You find out and talk with him and finally dissuade him from his plans. With your help he is now on the right path in life.

Should you tell the FBI even though he no longer has those plans?

What if you know that telling the FBI will only destroy the young fellow who is no longer a threat to anyone?

What if the FBI asks you if you know anyone planning to join a “Terrorist organization”? Continue reading

Muslims for collective action against bigotry

THIS is what Muslims can do!

It is easy and it will get the attention of all airlines, not just the offending one that kicks out a passenger for the crime of being “Muzlem“!

We don’t need to wait for the larger organizations to announce an advisory against an airline, any organization can start the ball rolling and other Muslim organizations can announce joining the advisory as well. Non-Muslim organizations that support justice and equal treatment may also decide to announce similar advisories in solidarity, it is a very powerful action.

If we fail to take such action, we can expect a continuation of kicks “to keep America safe”.

In the end, others will only respect us Muslims as much as we show respect for ourselves.

Trumps’ Speech on Afghanistan…and Pakistan

Yes, Donald Trump, the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of its overwhelming military decided to give a speech on Afghanistan. I would give it zero points for a well thought-out plan and full points for high rhetoric, bluster, fake bravado and other brave-appearing but meaningless, sounds.

Let’s take a closer look…

  • “Love for America requires love for all of its people. When we open our hearts to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice, no place for bigotry, and no tolerance for hate.”

Unless of course, we talk about MUSLIMS who do not deserve any protections against prejudice, bigotry or, hate. Note that most naïve Muslims are still sitting out there waiting and hoping that Trump will condemn the bombing of the Mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota; they have a long wait in front of them.

Barcelona Murders and Trump

I am seeing lots of messages (mostly by Muslims) on Facebook that are condemning the Barcelona murders and of course, everybody should be condemning this horror perpetrated against innocent people by mindless beings.
I also note that politicians are lining up to have their voices added to the condemnations of the Barcelona murders and that too, is a good thing…even V-P Pence threw his voice in.
