"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Hitler’s Germany, Trump’s Amerika and my Neighborhood

Well, anti-Muslim hate has entered my own neighborhood.

Just yesterday, I was having an energized discussion with a dear friend who asked me about Pete Buttigieg’s Presidential run. I told him every Democratic hopeful (except for Bernie) is running to kiss the Israeli behind in spite of its genocide of Palestinians and to support the country blindly including Buttigieg and for me, that rules him out. We meandered to what is going on in the US and I said it is little different from 1933 Germany and heading towards a full-throated persecution of Muslims. I despaired of ever seeing Muslims come together and vote en bloc because that is the ONLY way we can scare the crap out of politicians; you can either buy Congress in the US or, bury it. My friend took umbrage at my comparisons of the US, Israel and Nazi Germany, he asked me if I had heard of any Muslim being gassed.

That’s one of the biggest problems. As soon as we draw comparisons between Nazi Germany, Israel and the US, people get all hostile, essentially saying how dare I draw an equivalence of the three. There does not NEED to be a carbon copy before we need to take a stand and compare where we or another country is heading. We Muslims don’t need to wait for eventual concentration camps or gas chambers before we may say, “Oh horrors! THIS looks familiar from history!”.

I am told to look at the other important achievements of the politicians instead to being a single-issues person. I AM concerned about other important things! I think things such as universal healthcare, universal and equal schooling all the way through universities, keeping the poor from being homeless and hungry are ALL important. But how important are they to me when I fear for the safety of my children and their future generations? Continue reading

Slaughtering Muslims the “Civilized Way”

The attacks on Muslims by Trump the Republican Party have echoes in the past and recent tragedies. This time, Rep Ilhan Omar is being used as the starting point for greater levels of Islamophobia.
Hitler worked on the Germans to launch his “Final Solution” against (mostly) Jews and slaughtered millions before he was stopped by Germany’s defeat. It is noteworthy that Germans were forced into silence, acquiescence or support. The “Allies” were not interested in stopping the extermination, they were interested in maintaining their empires without the growing threat of the Japan-Germany alliance.

Is Islam dead in Pakistan?.

Is Islam dead in Pakistan?.

Religious fraud is where religion is used to mask fraud and hypocrisy. There are MANY such countries in fact, I doubt if any country is safe from such practices but I am not here to discuss the world’s ills, I am here to talk about my birth country that I want to be so proud of and yet, I am so ashamed of…Pakistan.

Pakistan is a land where religion is obvious at every corner, people have sprouted beards to show how religious they are, politicians invoke Islam whenever they get a chance, leaders and religious “scholars” spout Islam and God at every step and these last are usually seeking to exert their power and oppress people.

Oh yes, sadly Islam is used as cover to show the country how powerful and influential a certain religious “Scholar” or Mullah (imam) may be, where they rouse up masses of the ignorant and unemployed to demonstrate against things they do not like including what may have happened overseas. The “demonstrations” take the form of thousands of angry people, many of whom don’t even understand why they are there except that they need to “defend” Islam, God and the prophet Mohammed. During the “demonstration” people smash stores that may be on their way, burn cars, buses and trucks, all owned by innocent people, their own brothers and sisters in Islam, just so they can show how enraged they are.

When Hate and Fear bite back…

Is Louis Farrakhan Tearing Apart The Women’s March?”  Aiden Pink

Dear Aiden,
I read with interest, your March 13th article on The Forward about women’s March and Rev Farrakhan, It was in a link in the latest Forward .
Why Jewish Women Should Stand By The Women’s March – Farrakhan Or No” by Sara Bobkoff
Clearly, these are bad times for minorities…Jews, Muslims, Hispanics, Blacks, everyone. After the tragic butchery at the Pittsburg Temple, I hear a lot of anguished voices from may Jewish leaders, writers and organizations and quite rightly, the remains of the racial biases and hate that the Trump regime and the Republican Party are promoting will stay with us for at least a generation or more.
My disappointment however, is with some Jewish organizations and Temples.

When is it “Anti-Semitism”?

If this standard was demanded for a definition of Islamophobia, would YOU be okay with it?
Islamophobia is a certain perception of Muslims, which may be expressed as hatred toward Muslims. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of Islamophobia are directed toward Muslim or non-Muslim individuals and/or their property, toward Muslim community institutions and religious facilities.”

Substitute “Jews” instead of “Muslims” and that is what Jewish organizations are demanding that all countries adopt as their legal definition for Anti-Semitism, thus criminalizing the so-defined, “anti-Semitic” behavior. The IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition of Anti-Semitism that was concocted in Bucharest on May 27th 2016. Ever since then, Jewish organizations have been strongly agitating to have this “definition” adopted on an international scale.

Now Britain has also caved to the intense pressure from Jewish communities and organizations and has adopted the so-called, “Internationally-recognized definition of Anti-Semitism”, The US, I am pretty sure, is next to adopt it. As a fig leaf that fools nobody, British Labour Party has allowed for a moderating clause that “approved” a statement which “…ensures this will not in any way undermine freedom of expression on Israel or the rights of Palestinians”. This is already drawing fire from British Jewish organizations and I expect it will not be long before this modification is erased. Continue reading

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

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

Yes! Move US Embassy to Jerusalem!

It sure looks like it is happening now that Trump has informed Abbas that the US Embassy will be moved to Jerusalem. Abbas, like all other Palestinian leaders, will grovel and accept but make lots of noises about how terrible it would be. Arab leaders will do their typical “I’m mad!” dance and shout that this will mean the end of the world because the gates of Hell will crash open if the US does so. Mindless Muslims across the world will demonstrate how upset they are and they will proceed to burn their neighbors’ properties to show their rage at the US. Europe will state in a most civilized manner, that this step would not be helpful.

The FBI will go on high alert in the US and will start to look for yet more “Muzlems” to target but the world will move on… Continue reading

“Freedom of Speech” and “Democracy”

Freedom of Speech!
I hear this and I cringe because I know it is a not-too-coded code to take a bash at Islam and Muslims. Just as when I hear the word “Democracy”, I know someone’s freedom is about to be crushed as we have done so frequently in the past and even today.
We support Israel in the name of “Democracy” but Israel is farther away from democracy than even White South Africa was in its heyday. Palestinians are as animals, to be humiliated, dispossessed, killed, exploited and starved, all in the name of protecting Israel, the only democracy in the Mid-East. One might laugh if it were not so tragic.
Yet nobody in the US, seems to make it a matter of concern that we pour well over ten BILLION dollars into that rat-hole every year, just so they can practice newer ways to kill and to oppress millions of people. We, the United States of America, supposedly the greatest democracy in the world, have a knack of supporting the worst examples of oppression over man, all over the world. Even in this country today, we have made it a mark of true patriotism that some of our leaders should target Islam and Muslims as the greatest threat to the US and to the West, while the rest of our leaders remain steadfastly silent in case their future political aspirations should be endangered.
That’s it, isn’t it? WE allow evil to be done in our names because we say nothing against it; Democracy, War, Freedom of Speech, what is the difference? They are all fig-leaves of convenience to disguise the real pupose…Greed and self-interest.
Freedom of Speech!
What is it really? Bigots say it is their God-given RIGHT to say as vile a thought as comes to their minds and if they hate Islam and Muslims, they should be free to say so. Of course they are right because how do we stop the free expression of thought, without curtailing people’s freedoms?
