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 Jewish organizations and Temples.

Muslim Bomber suspect arrested in Florida!!

Authorities say they arrested a Muslim bomber who appears to have been living in Florida and was associated with the Mosque there“.

Oh, how everyone (but Muslims) would celebrate the “capture” of yet another ‘Muzlem‘ out to destroy the US and the West!Certainly, the Republicans The Party of Hate and Fear), Trump and his Cabinet minions would be clapping until the cows come home, they would be referring to him as “Muslim Bomber” or, “Muslim Terrorist” and they would be linking him to all kinds of other Muslim groups.

Sadly, it turns out that the man is a Trump-supporting Republican. I am betting nobody will refer to him as a “Terrorist”, not even the spineless Democrats. Democrats will also not say anything connecting the Trump Bomber to the Republicans because there IS honor among thieves. Already, “the authorities” are referring to him as “quite possibly a lone wolf, working on his own”. I will probably grow old and die before anyone calls him “The Republican Bomber” or, “The Trump-supporter Bomber”.

Here’s another interesting point, the Seminole tribe of Florida, has disavowed him, saying he is not and was not, a member of the tribe and I am sure everyone will take this disavowal as God’s own Truth. Yet, when MUSLIMS disavow a bomber or a killer who happens to be Muslim, we Muslims are accused of lying to protect themselves. Republicans have already disavowed the man saying his actions do not reflect the principles of the Republican Party and that too, is perfectly acceptable to the world at large (I believe has EXACTLY in line with the desires of the Republican Party). Yet again, Muslims can disavow violent criminals until they are collectively blue in the face but will anyone believe us? Hell, NO!

Once again, we find the FBI, ATF, Police, Congress and the White House are all marching in lock goose-step to protect their own White, “Judeo-Christians” with absolutely never a regard for “The cult of Islam”, the Trump-supporting Terrorist will be gone from the media attention faster than yesterday’s dust from a porch.

We Muslims can heave a collective sigh of relief but beware, the next time a “Muzlem” spits on the sidewalk, “they” will be screaming for our heads.

FATAH: Mentally ill? The media or the murderer?

I was sent a link to this (headline) article from the Toronto Sun questioning whether the media were mentally ill because they were soft on Muslims. It was sent to me by a dear friend who, as a Hindu from Pakistan has (sadly) good reason to be mad at Muslims persecuting minorities like him in the name of Islam. Pakistan’s twisted system of law, what they call “Sharia-based” law gives cover to the monsters who take part in murders and persecutions of religious minorities. (https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/fatah-mentally-ill-the-media-or-the-murderer?video_autoplay=true)

My friend’s e-mail was in response to him originally referring to “Radicalized” when talking about violent Muslims. I pointed out that the term “Radicalized” is not a hole lot different from “terrorist”, “fundamentalist” and “home-frown” in that they have become slightly civilized code for Muslims. I asked him to not use such terms and to be against violence and injustice no matter who committed it.

He replied by telling me there are Muslims who go to becoming Martyrs and killing people so when they go to Heaven, they will have “a gaggle of virgins”. That as guests in this country, we should refrain from “complaining and bitching at home and in Mosques” about the US and the West because it contributes to Muslim violence.

He closed by telling me that as “A Muslim leader”, it is my job to speak out against violence. This was my response: Continue reading

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.

Las Vegas Slaughter, can we stop it?

More than 50 people are dead and the number is likely going to go up as some more of the injured lose they lives. Hundreds are injured.

How does this happen? How can Steven Paddock, a single person, kill so many at one go? No matter what weapon a person has, short of a bomb, it is not possible to kill and injure so many from such a distance unless one is well-trained in the art of using automatic and semi-automatic weapons.

Already, interested parties are running to defend their positions.

“He was just a guy,” Eric Paddock (brother) told The Daily Mail. “Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy.”.

Sure. That’s true for everyone until they “snap”, except that when the person who “snapped” is not “one of us”, we begin to look for universal conspiracies.

Two Congressional representatives from Las Vegas were being interviewed on NPR at different times. After the usual, de rigueur expressions of condolences, the reporter asked the inevitable question about gun-control. We could almost see the congressman duck and cover as he said, “This is not a time for politics, it is a time to help people…etc., etc., blather blather…”. The other politician…probably a Democrat said a few mild words about “looking at guns” but she too, was more concerned about her job, than trying to look for solutions.

Oh, and what is the rest of America doing? Continue reading

Shooting Republicans…Muslims!

This man walks on to the baseball practice field in Alexandria, Virginia and shoots some Republican Party members of Congress. Confusion and outrage rule the day, the House and the Senate call out for total unity against such actions and pray for the quick recovery for those injured. Muslims in the meantime, breathed a collective sigh of relief, thanking God the shooter was not Muslim.

Hours later, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee hearing convened…to discuss Muslim extremism! As far as our Congress is concerned, it is still all about violence by “Muzlems” and that sums up the threat to the United States. Shooting violence by non-Muslims is not an issue because that takes the focus away from Islam and Muslims; lets keep the fires of Islamophobia stoked because Hate and Fear are what unite this great country.
Not a single Senator or Representative in Congress has spoken out against this persecution of Muslims. Continue reading

Vigil for the murdered Indian in Kansas

Miserable day for an open-air vigil but there was a good turnout of South Asians. Of course, there were lots of speeches and most people seemed to think they were the only ones making a speech and we were in a warm auditorium, but sadly, they were wrong.
I believe we have lost yet another opportunity for political strength and inter-faith cooperation (not the one where we read our scriptures and praise the other ones).

Muslim Bans, Muslim Lists…Action and Reaction

Targeting of Muslims has begun, it started with a sweeping ban on everyone from seven Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen). Then it was drawn back to be a ban on all refugees from those countries, then “Extreme Vetting of people from these countries; all in order to stop ALL “Islamic Terrorism” of course! Presumably, terrorism by non-Muslims may continue because it is more palatable. Muslims are being harassed at US entry points (yes, even more than ever before) and some have even been pressured into signing a renunciation of their Permanent Resident status.

Let just allow that the Trump administration and his equally Muslim-hating cabinet are really concerned about “Terrorism”. The term they used was “Islamic Terrorism” which means Muslims. Continue reading

Obama’s “right to Kill” Muslims…

Recently a friend expressed surprise when I mentioned that Obama holds weekly meetings at which he signs off on a “Kill List” of suspects…regardless of “Collateral Losses” (non-combatants, women, children). I conducted a search and came up with many links but I thought these three below, should be shared with all.

Obama has always insisted that the US is NOT “at war” with Islam. Fine, but the US is definitely trying to kill a whole lot of those dirty, brown targets without regard to who else gets killed and many do. American security agencies such as the FBI and CIA…and local Police departments have also convinced themselves that Muslims are the source of terrorism and must therefore, be targeted for special surveillance and harassment.

ALL Terrorists are Muslim…I Know Why!!!

By now, I’ll bet every Muslim has heard the bigotry-loaded term, “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all Terrorists are Muslim“, it just dawned on me that this saying is absolutely RIGHT!!!
When the only “terrorists” one wishes to recognize, are Muslim, then of course, all terrorists are going to be Muslim; QED.
The story below was forwarded to me by a friend, it shows how an act of violence or a threat by a non-Muslim is waved off as “stupid”, “deranged” or even “an isolated incident” and essentially, “Unrelated to terrorist groups”, while the same act, committed by  Muslim brings to trial, said Muslim, his family, his friends, his Mosque and his faith, as one, broad conspiracy, driven by the Quran and the prophet Mohammed. Naturally, since the perpetrator below, is not Muslim, he is automatically not a “terrorist”, but off his rocker. Every week, I get “The TSA Blog“, a weekly report that details all the firearms and explosives that people try to get through an airport…the ones who get caught! Did anyone in Seattle know there were two incidents in February, where people got caught at Sea-Tac airport, one with a 9 mm gun and one with a .45? No, I didn’t either. Who’s betting they were Muslim? you’d lose.
Now for my never-ending chant: These attitudes against Islam and Muslims are ONLY possible because we Muslims cannot get past our parochial and sectarian, (Takfiri) differences and because even the best of us cannot be bothered enough to work together and use our massive political clout. we like to work “behind the scenes” with “calm discussion”, to “engage”, politicians and law enforcement. We don’t like to appear to be “aggressive” or “Controversial”.
I am sharply reminded of this because just yesterday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, during his visit to the US, THANKED US service men and women, for their “sacrifices”. No mention at all, of how it was the US, that completely destroyed Afghanistan, slaughtered possibly hundreds of thousands of Afghanis, maimed probably forty-fifty times more and is now marching out of the country, leaving it in total, violent, anarchy. The same, by the way, has been done to Iraq.
