"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

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

As the “Muslim World” disintegrates…

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 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

“Jihad Against Islam”

Southern Poverty Law Center just released their Summer 2011 Intelligence Report with a leading report on “Jihad Against Islam“. A bold issue that tackles almost all the Fear- and Hate-mongers against Islam and Muslims in America, including the very powerful and famous…including the bogus, self-promoting “experts on Islam and Terrorism” like Pipes, Gaffney, Horowitz, Hannity, Fox “News” etc.,

It is very encouraging to see a report by an organization that is much respected in the US, for its stance against hate. We hope this is the first step in America, of the awareness and actions against the anti-Muslim hysteria being promoted at all platforms.

There are a few things I would have changed in the report. Continue reading

US War Criminals, where are they now?

There are many Americans…REAL Americans who are war-criminals but have escaped prosecution because America does not prosecutes its own. Just like the promiscuous woman who is always seen talking about chastity, the US is always seen to be talking about “Freedom”, “Democracy” and “Human Rights”, but is also always seen as the power behind the worst tyrants and despots in the world.

Every war the US has ever been involved in, produced a new cadre of American war-criminals, but none have ever been seriously prosecuted by the US. I say “seriously”, because the worst war crimes trial the US was involved in was the My Lai Massacre trial of Lt. Caley…the ONLY person out of 26, to be convicted…and then served 3.5 years…under house arrest!

The crimes against humanity by the US began with first Iraq war and continued through the sanctions regimen which took over a MILLION lives because the Iraqis could not even get the simple but crucial medicines to save their children and their adults.

Today, we have an entirely new cesspool of scoundrels who should be tried and hanged publicly, for the crimes against humanity, for war crimes and for destroying the most cherished values of what the US stood for Below is just a short list of those criminals who valued the stock prices of their feeder corporations, more than the lives of the dirty “Muzlems” or even more than the lives of the soldiers who were sent “out there” to “defend America”: Continue reading

Gen. Boykin’s fantasy march against Islam

Today, in America the privileged are those with closed minds, who drive Americans to the verge of hysteria with fearful images of Muslims gone wild, determined to slaughter every “Unbeliever” they can find…WE can find; I am a Muslim AND an American, so I switch from one identity to another, which can sometimes, confuse the reader. Rest assured, I am both and there is no contradiction in that.

The Hate-Islam industry is vast and growing, some leaders of this industry are sincere if misguided Christians who believe any perception of challenge to their faith, must be met with an assault on that challenge. Other leaders in this industry are sincere if misguided Jews who believe any defense of Israel, by definition, includes destroying Muslims and Arabs wherever they can be found.

Then there are leaders of the Hate-Islam industry who can feel the pulse of fear and ignorance in the general population and they know that if they can stoke those fears, then the leaders will become greater leaders, richer and more popular. These opportunistic leaders include politicians and “experts” on Islam and “terrorism”, they are fully aware that their fostering of hate and fear of Islam and Muslims is based on false presumptions, but they do not care, as long as their goals are furthered.

Back on February 11, 2011, General William G. Boykin wrote an article on The Texas Insider, entitled, “Shariah Law or Constitution? America Must Choose“. This is the same general who toured churches and heaped scorn in Islam and Muslims, saying things like, “My God is Jesus while theirs (Muslims) is Satan”. Continue reading

Thoughts on Muslims arrested in Florida

“Florida Imams Arrested for Aiding Pakistani Taliban” http://www.cnbc.com/id/43037173?par=RSS

The imam of a Florida mosque and his two sons, one also a Muslim spiritual leader, were arrested on Saturday on charges of financing and supporting the Pakistani Taliban, U.S. official said.”

Like most Muslims, when I first read this news, I was stunned, “Not another one!” I thought to myself…Imams at that! I read that the imam exulted when he heard the news of five US soldiers killed in Afghanistan and said he wished they were 50,000 more and I was completely disgusted, “Put him in the deepest hole you can find!” I thought to myself. I wanted to hide my face before someone might ask me what I thought about the three arrested in Florida, what could I possibly say to them?

It took a day before I was able to think clearly and not react and reject the Florida three out of conditioned reflexes. Six people, including these three, were charged with, ““supporting acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming in Pakistan and elsewhere” carried out by the Pakistani Taliban“.

We need to calm down and not join the group-think of condemnation simply because the accused are Muslim and we represent the institutions of “Freedom and Democracy” that no right-thinking person should abandon. Group-think seldom results in Justice being served, but group-think often results in egregious miscarriages of Justice as Continue reading

Anti-Muslim Protest by Brown-Shirt Wannabes

The introduction to the CAIR video shown in Salon .com reads:
On Sunday February 13, 2011 ICNA Relief (an American Muslim  relief organization) held a dinner event in Yorba Linda, CA to raise money for women’s shelters and to help relieve homelessness and hunger un the US“.
 
The rest of the short video is a series of clips of people called to gather, by ACT! for America, Tea Party and Pam Geller’s group, whose name I forget, plus other fringe idiots posing as REAL American patriots. The actual ICNA event was scheduled from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., but the so-called “protestors, were asked in Brown-Shirt publicity fliers, to come at 2:00 p.m.
According to Adel Syed, the Government Relations officer at CAIR LA, b y about 3:00 p.m., there were already about 400 people gathered and growing. Continue reading
