Umer Sultan|

These protests didn’t make it to the headlines of the Western Media, well simply because it doesn’t show the “Oppression” of Islam, it doesn’t fit the grand scheme, the grand scenario, you know what I mean!

Protest in Azerbaijan:

Indeed the role of women in Islam is misunderstood by Many! *Especially by Muslims themselves

Why its about Men? Men doing this and Men doing that! No let me correct myself. Why its about Muslim Men? Muslim Men doing this and Muslim Men doing that! Why its about Muslim Men oppressing Muslim Women? Why its about Muslim Men segregating Muslim Women?
Why some people being Muslims want to portray it as a Gender issue? Why they measure Islam on the weights of the Secular Western Tradition? Why these “Progressive” Muslims or “Feminist” Muslims fail to see that the Muslim Women wants to pray separate! Muslim Women do not want men to Continue reading

Why are we recognizing Columbus Day? by Dawud Walid

By Dawud Walid| Executive-Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations- Michigan.

I believe in “keepin’ it real,” and I cannot help but question why in the heck are we, in 2010, recognizing Columbus Day in America.

FACT #1: African Muslims reached the Americas prior to Columbus. Columbus even stated in his diary that he spotted a mosque when reaching the so-called New World.

FACT #2: Columbus was not even the first European to have reached America. Ever heard of Leif Ericson who reached the Americas about 500 years before Columbus?

FACT #3: Columbus was trying to reach India; he was LOST when he reached America!

FACT #4: Columbus’ “discovery” in 1492 was sanctioned by the royal family of Spain, the same government that presided over the Spanish Inquisition against Muslims and Jews in 1492.

FACT #5: Columbus’ “discovery” paved the way of European colonial conquest of the Americas and the ethnic cleansing of the Native (not Indian) people.

Based upon these facts especially #5, what were the founders of Columbus Day in America trying to convey?

Jewish Flotilla to Break Gaza Siege!!! While Hamas refuses to take Aid from Israel and waits for Turkey’s Green Light!!!

The German-Jewish organization Jewish Voice for Peace in the Middle East is preparing a Jewish flotilla to the Gaza Strip. “We intend to leave around July,” a member of the organization, Kate Leitrer, said to Ynet. “We have one small craft so far, in which there will be between 12 and 16 people, mostly Jews.”

Leitrer, herself Jewish, said there was great interest in joining. “Getting another boat means more expenses, and we’re discussing this possibility,” she said. “Because of limited space, there will be school equipment, candy, and mainly musical equipment, and there’ll be musicians aboard who’ll teach the children of Gaza. They need to see that Jews are not what how they are drawn in their eyes.”

Leitrer also claimed that Israel acted criminally in its lethal raid on the Gaza flotilla last Monday.

“The head of UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) appealed to the world to send ships due to the shortage of important supplies in Gaza,” she said. “By stopping the flotilla, Israel acted criminally. Israel must not act like pirates.”
