Are we truly the best community to serve God and mankind? No one alive today can truthfully and honestly say Muslims are the “best community” given the current tumultuous conditions in the Muslim world where there is little true faith, little peace, little health of mind and body; but much poverty, illiteracy, hostility, antagonism, disunity, corruption, violence, civil wars, and terrorism where Muslims are killing fellow Muslims.

O! Muslim Militants, by what stretch of the imagination do you find any justification for your suicide bombings, slaughter and kidnapping of civilians, destruction of mosques, churches and synagogues, expelling Muslims and Non-Muslims from their homes and villages, and massacring fellow Muslims.
One must ask the Muslim militants this most important and basic of all questions. What Revelation or Book and Prophet or Messenger do you follow to commit such crimes against Islam and humanity? It most certainly is not the Holy Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad given that all your crimes against humanity directly violate and contradict God’s Book and His Prophet Muhammad.
Israel’s Coming “Civil War”: Haredim Jews Confront the Militarized Secular Zionist State – by Prof. James Petras
The Haredim share a common plight with Israel’s Arab population: Both communities face increasing police harassment, discrimination, religious persecution and rising levels of poverty. A Haredim-Arab alliance would unite 30% of the population against a common secular militarist and plutocratic enemy. A study in 2006 claimed that over a third of Israeli Jews identified the Haredim as the most unpopular group in Israel .
Philip Giraldi, Director of the Council for the National Interest, discusses the “Christian Zionism and American Islamophobia” conference on January 30 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.; the peculiar interworking of American end-times theology and Israeli politics; the CIA’s skepticism on the effectiveness of drone strikes; and how fleeing Syrians are creating a refugee crisis and security problems.
Who would imagine that Israeli Jews could be so intimidated by the innocuous Christmas tree? Far from “swallowing up” the historic Palestinian city of Nazareth, “Upper Nazareth is a Jewish town and all its symbols are Jewish,” Shimon Gapso, the mayor of Upper Nazareth said. “As long as I hold office, no non-Jewish symbol will be presented in the city.”
The illegal Israeli (read Jewish) 8 metre high apartheid barrier is designed not for security but the theft of 80% of Bethlehem’s land to build a ring of illegal Jewish settlements. Why is the world so silent?
According to Israeli human rights groups, there was a portentous increase in religious hate crimes directed towards historical Christian monasteries, churches and graveyards in 2012.
This Christmas, new Israeli Herods abetted by Western powers are driving Christians from their land and transforming native churches into Israeli tourist attractions and grand “archaeological sites” like the Pyramids, detached from their aboriginal traditions.
Christians in Palestine are not suffering persecution, because we are not considered to be a religious community, but rather the people of Palestine. We have the same rights and the same obligations.
Fr Manuel says, “peace is possible if justice is possible,” so get off your fat backsides and ACT to deliver JUSTICE.
Zionist Jews is seeking to dehumanize the Palestinians in the same way the Nazis sought to dehumanize Jews in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Zionism is to modern enlightened Judaism what Nazism was to Germany’s traditional ethical values.
Israel have mocked the message of God’s prophet and turned it into a murderous blasphemy. The Pillar of Cloud represents life to the Palestinian people.
Jewish Voice for Peace calls Israel for an immediate cessation of air strikes and naval bombardment into Gaza and an end to the ongoing siege of Gaza.
Christian Friends of Israel support Israel bombing innocent civilians, demolishing homes and torturing children. All to serve the Lord and bless Israel.
Muhammad Legacy of a Prophet, a film help counters misinformation and start a more positive dialogue about Muslims in America.
US Christian leaders prick the Zionists’ pretty balloon. And the ADL Foxman goes ballistic and pull out of national Jewish-Christian interfaith dialogue.
If one argues for the universality of values such as the freedom of speech and expression, then why not apply this on issues such as “The Holocaust”?
Christian leaders in the United States question the continuation of unconditional US financial assistance to the government of Israel. Demand just and lasting peace.
They invaded and occupied our lands, they massacred millions of our people, they enslaved us, they stole the resources for their benefit, they imposed tyrannical puppet rulers upon us, they said they came to civilize us, save our souls by converting us to Christianity. And now they are on another crusade—a crusade to denigrate, demonize, and slander our faith and our most beloved and merciful of Prophets—Muhammad.
Why would one Christian group snub another? How did these churchmen, far removed from the rotten reality, become experts on “security, dignity and peace” in the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom? Have they been there, rolled up their sleeves and immersed themselves in the snakepit that the Holy Land has been allowed to become? What makes them think they’ve found a way forward while Palestine remains under brutal occupation?
America never treated Muslims respectfully. US media and Hollywood play lead roles. How many more millions will die before The New York Times and other media scoundrels acknowledge decades of US mass murder?
The answer is that there is a foundation of discontent with the United States that has become engrained in many Arab and Muslim societies so that even the simplest and stupidest of films can become an opportunity around which to vent frustration.
Barack Obama is afraid of the political shadow to his right and will not move against even the most psychopathic actors, especially at election time. Our leaders will do nothing to address our own behavioral and policy shortcomings. Thus, the dangerous likelihood of more provocations igniting the deep anti-American anger in the Muslim lands will go on and on.
Has Al-Qaeda – defeated by the Arab revolutionaries who demanded dignity rather than a Bin Laden Caliphate across the Middle East – now decided to cash in on populist grievances to advance their Islamist cause?
In the past Hamas has shown great respect for the Christian tradition of Christmas and, I hear, Hamas officials in Bethlehem used to dress up as Santa Claus to distribute gifts to Christian children. So the question remains: has Hamas really become such a Scrooge* as to torpedo Christmas with a tree ban?
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight
As Israeli Jewish terrorist attacks on mosques in occupied Palestine are assuming a phenomenal frequency. Indeed, with the Israeli government and security establishment doing next to nothing to put an end to this wanton and unprovoked terror, a huge fire is being started in the region.
Stuart Littlewood questions the ethics of British politicians and church leaders who profess a commitment to Christian values but look the other way, actively support or are content to be identified with Israel while it commits crimes against the people of Palestine – Christians and Muslims.
The new-born Jesus then closes: “And peace be upon me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I am raised up alive.”
The settlers don’t give a damn about international opinion – no more than does al-Qaeda, to which they have an unsavory resemblance. Led “by fundamentalist religious leaders who do not recognize the state of Israel and its laws,” they are driven by religious fanaticism and have no respect for governments or their agents. It is their ideological conviction that all of Palestine (including, by the way, Jordan) must be Jewish as soon as possible.
The West have agreed to a kind of “power-sharing’ with Islamist parties. The Islamists would be responsible for imposing orthodox economic policies and re-establishing ‘order’ in partnership with pro-multinational bank economists and pro US-EU generals and security officials. In exchange the Islamists could take certain ministries, appoint their members, finance electoral clientele among the poor and push their ‘moderate’ religious, social and cultural agenda.
Has anyone noticed that the political air is wafting rancid lately? That is the smell of modern barbarism. Modern barbarism is a malodorous umbrella concept. Underneath the umbrella are lots of fetid phobias, isms and behaviours: Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia, semi-fascism, scapegoating, stereotyping, bullying, libelling and a growing, aggressive intolerance of everything and everyone who is not to the liking of the modern barbarian.
Very few films or TV programmes portray Arabs in a favourable light. Those that do need to counter the negative images reflected in the bigotry of a century in Hollywood. The road to deserved improvement of the Arab image in the west will be paved with films that portray Arabs as they really are.
The FBI is teaching its counterterrorism agents that “main stream” [sic] American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers; that the Prophet Mohammed was a “cult leader”; and that the Islamic practice of giving charity is no more than a “funding mechanism for combat.”
They are part of the national fabric that holds our country together. They contribute to America in many ways, and deserve the same respect as any of us. Take the pledge.
I doubt the Post will apologize for its knee-jerk attack against Muslims or ever change its ways to bring peace in the Holy Land despite its important to U.S. interests.
