Everything you have said is true, true, true. What to do? I have spoken out so much that I feel I may be in danger. Especially since I read the article on concentration camps being set up in the U.S. Did you read that article? My friends are for genocide in the Middle East and every other country that tries to stop our imperialism-they don't get it. The mind is so easily brainwashed. Soon, the U.S. will be committing crimes against humanity that will be as evil as Nazi Germany. Israel is committing worse atrocities than Hitler. 55 years of a holocaust in Palestine with no reparations, is far worse than a couple of years in a Nazi prison that some of the jews endured. I so wish that justice would come to these evil people that are bringing all of this tragedy on the world and destroying the U.S. Shame on them and may the curse that the jews asked be put on them, at the time of Christ, come to past.

The Christian Right is not without guilt either. I am ashamed to say I am a Christian when I read what that evil group is responsible for. When the tables are turned, they will see the wrong they have committed against humanity. What a surprise is in store for them when they realize that the jews have no intention of becoming Christians, that Jerusalem is not significant to Christ and that they can not force the hand of God to return to this earth. They have been duped by their leaders. The jews who are only interested in their money and propaganda. They are suckers. All of their money and sermons will have been in vain.

An angry Christian
The Homeland Security Bill and Muslims in America
by Motisola M. Abdallah (Atlanta, Georgia)
[The writer is Secretary General of Jamaat al-Muslimeen.]

The Bush bloc vote a couple of years ago by "elite" Muslims has proven to be disastrous for Muslims. Now with the recent elections of republicans, the Homeland Security Bill which smells of shaytan, will probably pass.

Observe what has happened thus far to Muslims in this country and the name of Islam when no such piece of legislation existed before. Do those who take the oppressor as their protecting friends think they will escape?

Do those who have given the green light to the FBI at their Masjids and conventions think they will be immune by this government's sought after annihilation of Islam? What a sad state of affairs for Muslims who thought their money could buy them paradise here in this life and the Hereafter.

Fortunately, mostly due to Jamaat al-Muslimeen's dedicated, fearless and tireless jihad against the lies of the Kuffaar, there is now starting to be some breakdown in the thinking of so-called scholars of Islam about this wicked government. Al hamdu lillaahi.

Israeli army murders a child in Nablus

Occupied Jerusalem: 7 November, 2002 (IAP News)
Israeli occupation soldiers manning armored personnel carries on Thursday shot and killed a Palestinian child as he was playing in the street across his home.

Eyewitnesses said soldiers opened machine gun fire on 12-year-old Rashad al Didk, while playing in the street at the New Askar refugee camp near Nablus.

Two international civilian observers operating in the area pointed out that soldiers opened fire on the boy without any provocation.
"I was right beside the father as he carried his son to a nearby taxi. Blood was trailing us. The boy was groaning and losing consciousness. I don't know how anybody can survive losing that much blood," said one observer named Alison.

The child was still alive as he was being rushed to hospital but died shortly afterwards.

The Israeli occupation army said soldiers opened fire on the boy because he ventured out of his home in violation of a curfew order.
International observers noted that the occupation army was trying to violently impose a curfew on Nablus Thursday, rumbling tanks through the city, randomly shooting, setting up roadblocks and firing tear gas and sound grenades at large groups of unarmed people, including school children.
Earlier this week, the London-based human rights organization, Amnesty International, accused the Israeli army of committing war crimes against Palestinians and demanded that Israeli soldiers and officers involved in these crimes be tried as war criminals.

Subject: Stop the execution of Aimal Kasi (ref: The words of Jesus Christ.)

Dear Governor Warner

I am opposed to the death penalty. I am opposed to war. In that spirit, I realize that the planned execution of Aimal Kasi on November 14 will not lead to peace and harmony in the world.

As you are a Christian, I urge you to eschew the Jewish idea of an eye for an eye and follow the teachings of him whom you serve, that is Jesus Christ (peace be on him). As Jesus said:
"Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." (Matthew 5:38-39)

Forgiveness is the greatest virtue, especially when you have the power to forgive under law. Again I urge you to look at the teachings of Jesus whom you follow:
"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive your trespasses." (Matthew 6:14-15)

In that spirit, Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) forgave his enemies when he conquered Mecca.

In this case it is wise to forgive. Aimal Kasi's family supports the government of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, America's ally and close friend. These are not opponents of the United States, but family ties are bound to be affected by the execution of Aimal Kasi. The hurt you will cause by execution will turn your friends into enemies. Already America does not lack strong opposition in Pakistan.

It appears that Kasi's crime was not one of personal vendetta or cold blooded murder. He seems to have seen himself as a warrior in the conflict between the world of Islam and the pro-Israeli policies of the United States. He attacked the CIA headquarters as an act of war. The CIA has carried out actions against nations across the globe, be it Chile or Iran or any of the Muslim countries. In such a covert war, sometimes there is a bloody response from the other side.

In that context, Kasi is a prisoner of war, not a mere murderer. The form of his war was not conventional but the content of his action was one of war, not murder. Under international law, executions of prisoners of war are not permitted.

I join the family of Aimal Kasi in urging you to extend your power of clemency to stop his execution.

-assalamalaikum, Ramzanul mubarak,
The election result has a positive side too. The arrogant will become doubly arrogant. There will be no checks and bounds left. The right wing will commit big mistakes. The right minded citizens will have to work harder to oppose those with inflated egos. The right wing after committing blunders will have no one else to blame but themselves. So all in all there is a positive side to this result. God does not like the arrogant and will drown him in his own filth,inshah Allah
