The Opening

Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ir-Raheem (In the Name of Allah the Most Merciful the Most Benificent)

Asalaamu ‘alaikum (Peace be upon you) my friends. I bear witness that there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is His last Messenger.

Welcome to my website!

The purpose of this blog is challenge the propaganda of violence that is promoted by the western media, the Islam-hate industry and Muslim extremists.  It is an effort to speak against hate on all sides, Muslim or not.  Whether one is Jewish, Christian, Muslim, black, hispanic, white, male or female, we all deserve respect, dignity and equal treatment in society and I will take those issues head on to the best of my ability in anything that I write.  I am politically Independent, not Conservative nor Liberal, nor am I a Muslim ‘reformer‘.  I am someone who sees that Islam throughout the ages has been pliable among the societies and cultures in which it has come to play a role.  Islam can coexist and play a productive role in any society.  I believe that us Muslims simply need to apply critical thinking skills and hard work to solve problems peacefully.  The golden rule of Judaism and Christianity is also the golden rule of Islam.

Leviticus 19:18, “Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am HaShem.”

Matthew 7:12, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

Qur’an 41:34, “Good and evil cannot be equal. Repel evil with what is better and your enemy will become as close as an old and valued friend”
