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.
Muhammad Legacy of a Prophet, a film help counters misinformation and start a more positive dialogue about Muslims in America.
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”?
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.
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?
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.
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 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.
Paul J. Balles argues that Islamophobia is growing and spreading prejudice against Muslims in the US, a fact that is underlined by a recent report by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has collected and relayed the facts and identified both vilifiers and supporters of Islam and Muslims.
Pat Robertson once again spoke out against American Muslims, singling out the construction of mosques and the purported threat of creeping Sharia law. Robertson likened critics of Muslims to opponents of Nazis and rejected claims that his opposition to rights for Muslims is bigotry, asking, “I wonder what were people who opposed the Nazis, were they bigots?”
Whatever becomes of the truly pathetic “Pastor” Terry Jones and his plans to appear later this month at the largest Mosque in Michigan to condemn Islam and to generate some media attention while provoking all decent Americans and people of good will everywhere with his hate speech, will not be of much lasting import to Muslim and American relations.
This brief is based on Maj. Jason Orlich’s Extensive Research, Islamic texts, history, and lessons learned at JTF Guantanamo. “Yahweh is Good, Allah is Bad”.
Anti-Muslim Bigotry – in the United States is getting out of hand. Our country is sick and we need to understand the source of this sickness and do something about it. Islamphobia is being actively supported by local, state and federal governments and law enforcement. Anti-Muslim hatemongers routinely train local, state and federal officials to hate Islam and Muslims and it looks like they get good money for it. I tell you, I am in the wrong business, but I digress.
King apparently decided that Islam is to be the scapegoat for America’s ills; and he is now on a witch hunt for Muslims to burn. King’s anti-Islamic bias discredits him as a bigot.
Those who have failed to suppress the Egyptian revolution now seek to derail it or rebrand it to keep the status quo of division and mistrust among the people. But Egyptians of all walks of life need to remember their moments of unity in Tahrir Square and across Egypt.
Paul J. Balles looks at how key opinion formers in the United States, from the media to politicians, are brainwashing the public into anti-Muslim hysteria by labelling as “Muslim or Islamic extremists” anyone who refuses to cow-tow to Israel, America or their stooges.
One out of seven news outlets have noticed, thus far, that Wikileaks seems to have a “soft heart” when it comes to Israel and India. Zbigniew Brzezinski caught on, finally, declaring that Wikileaks is an “intelligence operation” using “pointed” information carefully “seeded” into a combination of minor scandals and chickenfeed.
There is absolutely no question for the press that Wikileaks is totally phony, we all know it, it is blatantly slanted, clearly not only anti-American but aimed at Islam, the easy target of all time. Wikileaks is also trying to be more and more clever about seeming less the Mossad “game theory” construct that we all know it is. The “clever” is fun to watch, more “ham handed” than esoteric.
The bottom line answer is that the “war on terror” is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides “security from terrorists,” but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties.
How can the West expect a placid reaction to their own actions when they have massacred more than 1,300,000 Iraqis, let alone the Afghans and the support given to Israel for their vicious savagery in Lebanon and Gaza? How can we expect anything but calls for retribution when the agonizing stories of innocent victims of military atrocities get told and retold?
The plain truth is that Western nations face no Islamic threat. Claiming one is a US-concocted lie. Authorities and media reports viciously spread it to justify state-sponsored terrorism against innocent victims like Mahboob and his family, including son Momin, now imprisoned for being Muslim at the wrong time in Canada.
