Your breathtaking images move my soul to tears
Most articulate silence
Painfully mesmerizing eloquence
Thank you for telling the story in stillness
يا صاحب الهم إن الهم منفرج
أبشر بخير فإن الفارج الله
اليأس يقطع أحياناً بصاحبه
لاتيأسن فإن الكافي الله
الله يحدث بعد العسر ميسرة
لاتجزعن فان الصانع الله
إذا إبتليت فثق بالله وأرض به
إن الذي يكشف البلوى هو الله !
Why Palestinians should resist and NOT accept to be dragged and distracted, by the so called Jewh-anti-Zionist “supporters” into fighting side battles of “antisemitism”, “holocaust denial”, “conspiracy theories” and “LGBT rights”:
This article is not a condonation or justification of any form of discrimination or persecution against people with various sexual orientations or disorders, it is a mere expression of an opinion and sharing of concerns associated with promoting explicit sexual education amongst children and pressurising other societies to change their codes of ethics, thus destroying the cradle of child-protection, the family unit being the foundation of these societies.
For whatever reason, I often find myself engaged in writing about taboo topics which very few are willing to touch, and expressing “politically incorrect” views, which no one is willing to even ponder about, this article is just one of those.
One of the main reasons that pushed me to speed up and write this article, besides its core subject, the welfare of children, is my observation of some huge efforts which have been exerted to make the issue of “sexual orientation” an integral part of the Palestinian struggle for Liberation!
As a mother and a grandmother with great love and devotion for children, as a human being with intense concern for children’s welfare, and as Palestinian, with a deep rooted culture, in which FAMILY -not the individual, is the nucleus of society, I feel the need to drop my two cents on the issue of adult sexual behaviour and the need of child protection.
Palestinian culture, being predominantly Muslim, is essentially a culture of faith where believing in a Creator, accepting that actions have consequences and taking responsibility for people’s own deeds are core concepts in its philosophy.
Most socio-dynamics in Islamic societies stems from that belief; starting with God-man relationship, ending with man-nature relationship, including all which is in-between. i.e. the boundaries of personal freedoms, and extents of responsibilities in the human-human relationship.
Such traditional culture views society NOT as the sum of its individuals, behaving as disconnected atoms floating in a vacuum, but rather the very expanded social collective of families and extended families, which results is a neatly woven, well bonded social fabric, in which the welfare of the whole is understood to precede that of the individual. Acting exactly as an organic body, of which all cells are connected and important.
At the heart of such societies the concept of “All mankind are born free but OUR FREEDOM ENDS WHEN THE FREEDOM OF OTHERS BEGINS”.
Such culture puts very strong emphasis on the role of traditional family in the upbringing, welfare, health and protection of its children (the nucleus family ; consisting of mother and father, and the extended family consisting of relatives as well as neighbours and friends)
Is it not only reasonable then to assume that any ideology or practices which prioritises the INDIVIDUAL and puts their selfish desires up and above the welfare of the whole, might not fulfil the needs of a deeply religious, family oriented and tightly woven society?
If Muslims choose freely to have some restriction upon themselves (like modest dress code, abstinence from consuming alcohol or self-discipline in sexual behaviour) in order to create a more attentive and more protective, more family oriented atmosphere for the sake of its most vulnerable members, namely children, what harm is there in that?
If the support for human rights in Palestine or elsewhere in the world is conditional and dependent on people denouncing their religion, cultural heritage, and social traditions and adopting new sets of social behaviour alien to them, which only mirrors that of the West; does not that mean denying them a most basic human right, the right to think, and live within a specific ethical code and legal system of their own choice?
The East has different history and different experiences, different perspective on existential issue and different views of the world. It has different social structures, different ways of dealings with it’s social wells and of healing its ills, thus it is nonsensical and rather presumptuous to assume that East and West share exactly the same problems, thus need the same solutions!
TRANSFERRING the PROBLEMS of the West onto the East, then JUXTAPOSING the SAME SOLUTIONS on the East is rather shortsighted and very condescending, IMHO.
Trying to standardise and sum up humanity in the form of Western civilisation is a grave mistake. We can’t simply assume that what is good and right for the western culture is the norm, nor we can accept that it is superior to that of other cultures, and for me this is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. The Muslim world has suffered enormously from colonial imperialism, military and economic occupation, we are longing for FREEDOM, but the freedom that we long most for is the FREEDOM of THOUGHT.
We have to come to common grounds of accepting that each culture and civilization has its own structure that depends very much on a huge heritage and millennia of accumulated experiences, understanding this and respecting it is vital for the future peaceful existence of human race.
I don’t think it is my business, or anyone’s business for that matter to know what people do in their bedrooms, or to be exposed to such private matters, let alone be asked to support, take pride in, demonstrate for, or celebrate what people do in the privacy of their own homes.
However, like every issue in the world, people are entitled to express an opinion or to have personal views on it, such views should not be considered as “persecution”, “infringement”, or “violation of the human rights” of LGBT or homosexuals.
All the above should raise red flags in any decent person’s head, it should ring alarm bells and concern with those who care about children’s welfare and wellbeing.
I see so much contradiction in dealing with these issues in Western societies:
Exposing children to all sorts of information images and materials, encouraging them to be sexually aware, sexually educated and active as young as possible, yet pretending to want to protect them from sexual abuse.
Campaigning for human rights of one group yet being ever so quiet about other groups of similar tendencies.
Trying to shelter children from abuse yet see nothing wrong in putting them in a situation where they might be endangered; emotionally, mentally and psychologically abused.
Allow me here to storm your brains by throwing out some questions:
Homosexuality is what it is, a sexual orientation, like any other, so why make it into a defining identity?
Why should people be defined and take so much “pride” by such a narrow aspect of their behaviour, done in the privacy of their own bedrooms?
Why should the rest of mankind -including the young ones, engage in promoting, celebrating and taking pride in the sexual act of some of its adult members?
Why should humanity be split into two categories : hetro, homo, thus identified by such limiting and insignificant parameters?
Can we really tell how civilized a county is by the size of its pride parades?
Is civility and respect of human rights measured by its celebration of how fast growing its homosexual population?
Is it not total regression, to define ourselves merely by our sexuality -rather than by our morality and intellect?
Can we define humanity by two groups: those who love to sleep on their backs and those who prefer sleeping on their sides or tommies?
Can we start having “Pride Parades” for left-handed people, or for people who prefer using coloured tissue-paper in the bathroom, rather than the common white, for they too are minorities?
Do the words “WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT OTHERS DO BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR BEDROOMS, SO PLEASE DON’T BOTHER US WITH IT” mean anything to anybody?
If this zealous support of homosexuality is all about human rights, why do people in the west favour to defend the human rights of homosexuals yet they are not so keen on the human right of:
Paraphilias: Exhibitionism, Fetishism, incest, Frotteurism, Zoophilia, Mysophilia Necrophilia, Troilism, Coprophilia, Masochism, Sadism, Transvestitism, and Voyeurism?
All the above display “less-common” sexual behaviours. Just like homosexuals, they too can not control the impulses and desires they feel, and they are only sexually fulfilled in their own different way, so should they be invited to schools to “educate” children about their sexual peculiarities?
Should humanity celebrate a week “pride parade” for each and every sexual orientation or deviation there is?
Why are they –unlike homosexuals- given medical advice and psychological treatment instead of being accepted as they are?
Why are they forced by society to suppress their feelings and “live miserably” instead of promoting and celebrating their sexual habits in public?
Who can define sexual disorder, or “normal” and “abnormal”, who is allowed to vote?
Who has the right to draw the lines?
Why is it that those who view homosexuality and transgender as disorders are condemned and accused of being homophobes?
Do exhibitionists have the right to fulfil their desires and take pride in their sexuality by imposing their nudity and public sexual behaviour on society?
Whose rights come first exhibitionists or society and its children?
Do we become cruel, anti-human-rights bigots and exhibiphobes if we objected to the public sexual gratification of exhibitionists?
What about Zoophilia (people who are attracted to animals) or Necrophilia (gratification by having sexual contact with dead bodies), should that be legalised?
Is a man entitled to marry a dog, a goat, a corpse, or a woman’s underwear in church?
Why are such individuals not allowed to promote their sexuality, teach children about it and celebrate it publicly?
Is it appropriate and healthy to have children reading stories titled “My daddy John and my mummy black & red underwear”?
or “My daddy Harry and my mummy mountain goat”?
Will there be human right groups calling for the right of those people to get married and adopt children? After all this person is only expressing his love and is harming no one in the process?
Are we sure that teaching very small children all this intimate adult materials would have no negative effect on their emotional, psychological and mental state ?
It is clear that with paedophilia children’s rights are violated, because they are unable to give their consent as they are immature, vulnerable and unable to make good judgement. But why are we seeing individuals and groups trying to legalise and normalise such criminal activities?
Who can define an acceptable age of consent?
Is a 16 year-old a child? Is 12, 13, 14, 15 year-old a child?
Why then girls and boys as young as 12 are – by law- given contraceptive on demand?
Is it ok for children to have sexual relations with mates of similar age or a few years older?
How many years difference is deemed acceptable?
What age difference makes the relationship unlawful and wrong (Paedophiliac)?
Who can regulate and have the say on this?
What about the rights of adopted children, what effect will have on their psychological health, having two mums or two dads, and not knowing their biological parents?
Nowadays, where exactly is the persecution of homosexuals in the west, where is the abuse of their human rights?
Where is it all heading?
Is there an end to how far humanity would go in its abuse of children in order to gravitate its most primitive behaviour?
Have we not learnt yet the harm which would be caused to children by such abuse because of certain tribal customs amongst some communities?
Is expressing an opinion considered “infringement on rights”?
Moreover, why impose on the rest of the world, Western definitions, Western values, Western problems, and inflict Western solutions upon them?
Isn’t that yet another form of imperialism, i.e thought imperialism?
If Western countries along with with LGBT and gay-rights “activists” are so keen to help other “undeveloped” societies into “progress”, wouldn’t their help be much more appreciated when it gives the other the freedom they desire in devising their own social structure and the respect they deserve in choosing ethical codes of their own?
Wouldn’t be more modest to learn about other cultures, how they function, how their people interact, and how they solve problems, resolve conflicts and deal with disagreements, before thinking of exporting ideas, educating others’ children and imposing their solutions to imaginary problems?
Do we have sufficient knowledge as to the effect of early exposure to certain explicit sexual materials or behaviour might have on young children, how harmful?
Who have the right to decide what is appropriate, descent, acceptable exposure for children?
How do you feel if in other societies, majority of its citizens view homosexuality as a disorder?
In societies where the welfare of the whole is much important than the individual, who are encouraged to practice self restraint, sacrifice, and altruism, rather than pursuing selfish fulfilment and egoism, if they willingly give up some desires in order to keep a healthy society and less traumatized children; why the obsession with imposing change?
If some societies cherish family unit as foundations of a healthy society, and views protection, care and commitment as the finest expression of love, thus producing a socially cohesive and healthy society, where the weak is looked after and the needy is provided for, why attempting to replace it with failed experiments as documented in many Western societies, where family units are disintegrating and individualism is eating the fabric of society away?
Now, is the issue of promoting and celebrating homosexuality (again, I reiterate, a private act which should not be anyone’s business) related to the Palestinian struggle for Liberation?
Are we obliged to start teaching our young Palestinian boys and girls about homosexual and LGBT “persecution” and “abuse of human rights” in order to be “accepted” as “progressive” society worthy of support?
Just like attempting to tie our Palestinian struggle for liberation with causes which only distracts us from focusing on our goals and deplete our energies, like fighting “antisemitism”, “holocaust denial”, or “conspiracy theories”, pretending that this is the way for Palestine liberation, we refuse the imposition and the premises that the issue of “homosexuality is central to our cause”.
We refuse to consider sexual orientation issues as primal or urgent issues to be dealt with immediately, or that it the most burning issue in our quest for justice and freedom, when we have not yet achieved the most basic and fundamental human right ever, the right of SURVIVAL,
We do not accept to see our Palestinian struggle for freedom hijacked and used by some campaign groups who try to piggy-back on the Palestine cause in order to promote their own agenda and campaigns for “sexual freedom”, which would only distract, complicate and skew the essense of Palestine issues.
Moreover, this issue should be left to the Palestinians and other societies to examine, discuss and deal with, in its own time and in accordance with its own ethics and what is best for those societies.
We refuse to be distracted and our aims obscured by side issues while we struggle for survival facing threats of genocidal magnitude.
My fear is that all this promotion and disproportionate importance given to homosexuality, would be used as the first crack in the foundational rock of human ethics which took mankind millennia of evolution and slow progress in order to fine-tune complex and refined moral systems founded on justice and compassion, thus followed by all sorts of sexual ill-behaviours; child molesting, beastality, and incest would cause total regression and collapse of nucleus family units bringing us back to stone age.
If prematurely and inappropriately and for selfish reasons, children are to be exposed to all these types of adult sexual behaviour, are we not allowed to cry then, where is the their safety and protection? Isn’t all this direct infringement on children’s right?
It is more wise, humanly decent and respectable to let various societies -especially the ones under threat of eradication, like the Palestinian society, exercise their rights of freedom of thought, by following ethical code of their own choice and without manufacturing artificial consent imposed upon them by donor countries or any other pressure group.
It is more wise, humanly decent and respectable to let children be children, do not rob them of their purity and childhood.
Children are not meant to be exposed to concepts, images, words or acts which they are not ready for.
Allow them time to enjoy being young and innocent and carefree, without having to be burdened with adult stuff.
Allow them to grow up and mature in their own time.
Allow them to play without concern, to run light-heartedly and to laugh loudly when they slide or use a swing.
Allow them to BE.
This article is not a condonation or justification of any form of discrimination or persecution against people with various sexual orientations or disorders, it is a mere expression of an opinion and sharing of concerns associated with promoting explicit sexual education amongst children and pressurising other societies to change their codes of ethics, thus destroying the cradle of child-protection, the family unit and the foundation of these societies.
Strolling by the ocean
Seagulls flying by
Praying in adoration
Delightful full of grace
Engulfed in waves of love
Immense intense supreme
One of those rare moments
Awesome and sublime
Love swathed my being
Love tickled my heart
Love caressed my mind
Love swayed my soul
Tears of joy streaming
Tranquil and serene
Melodies of gratefulness
Swirled inside my core
Singing like a nightingale
One thought gripped my mind;
I wish this wondrous moment
To be felt by ALL
Zionism is the practical expression of tribal/ nationalistic Judaism, and “Israel” is the manifestation of Zionism.
Both, “Israel” and Zionism -as well as the ideology of their global supporters of Jewish-Zionists, are founded on some SUPREMACIST MYTHS :
What we have is what can be called “Jewish ideology”, which does not necessarily involve being religious or believing in a creator. It does involve however, the belief in “Jewishness”, which is in essence a MINDSET of “us and them“, of EXCLUSIVITY of a tribe, ENTITLEMENT of leadership, and SUPERIORITY of race, intellect and morality.
They are not born that way, it is the indoctrination drummed in their heads from very young age, which causes them to favour tribalism over universality, thus shedding off their own humanity in the process.
Such skewed perception of reality cannot survive the test of time, the inevitable will happen and sooner or later reality will hit them in the face.
I am confident that mankind will be provided with the necessary resolve, courage and creativity to rid it self of those who strive to enslave, divide and destroy.
Sustainable human societies functions in ways that supremacists have no understanding, control or mastery of. Systems of Justice will inevitably re-emerge on the ruins of rotten old ones. With the hard work, dedication, steadfastness, energy, sacrifice and love of those who are sincere, undoubtedly, a more just system will organically rise from the ashes to replace that which has caused the world so much pain and agony.
The same system we see all around us in this fabulous mysterious universe of ours, dancing between utter mayhem and chaos to supreme balance and harmonious order, and between utter annihilation to new creation.
It’s the very same marvellous Cycle of Life, that irresistibly strives towards perfection; towards the Most Sublime, Most Gracious, Most High.
No matter how much they try to “soften” the face of supremacist psychopaths, no matter how much they try to “normalize” their crimes and whitewash their behaviour, the truth remains ugly and glaring.
Something went terribly wrong in the mindset and attitudes of those people. Something is totally skewed in their perception of themselves and the world. The ideology of supremacy, the indoctrination, and the sheer facial expressions reflective of revolting arrogance leaves you speechless.
After watching this “Israeli” documentary, I realised that it is not a genuine attempt to “expose” crimes and inhumane behaviour of the soldiers at checkpoints, but rather to whitewash the horrific nature of cold-blooded murders committed at these check points by these soldiers. It is an attempt give a “humane face” which begs for sympathy by presenting psychopathic soldiers in the image of imature innocent friendly adolescents who all they want is to “laugh”, “joke”, “have fun”, “take pictures” and be “with mommy”.
This work is not an investigative work, which aims to identify criminals, and uncover those who participated in it. It is not a documentation of a crime-scene, but rather a statement of protection: “hey, we know our boys have done some naughty things, but they are not bad boys at all”.
Omitting to mention the beatings of children, the killing, the shooting, the watching of patients die and of pregnant women give birth in agony and distress, which have been regular occurrences at these checkpoints, making them “execution and murder points” rather than just “check points”, thus concealing the horrific, violent and sadistic activities, which translates to a deadly grinding daily reality in which Palestinians are forced to live under at gunpoint, is rather revealing and revolting.
Filmed 10-12 years ago, at the peak of Second Intifada, where shooting Palestinians was a daily practice, undoubtedly, this piece of work is another form of highly sophisticated hasbara piece which is done with the help of “perception management experts” as it is the nature of “Israeli” propaganda media, allowing criticism to certain degree, to give an image of a free, democratic, self–regulating and caring society which is even allowed to criticise their army.
At the same time their criticism is done “humanely”, not with the intention to identify murderers, hence to file legal cases against the culprits, it is done in a manner that causes criminals the least damage. It does not present their murderous activities as something to be dragged into courts of justice for prosecution and to pay for their crimes.
Such concealment, dressed up s “exposure” is worthy only of contempt.
The Tanya, which explicitly divides people into two categories: Jews (refined ethical humans with divine souls) and non-Jews (corrupt sub-humans with animal souls).
The Tanya explicitly declares that unlike the Jewish souls, “The souls of the nations of the world, however, emanate from the other, unclean kelipot which contain no good whatever“
Nefesh HaBahamis (Animal Soul), Nefesh HoElokis (G-dly Soul)
“Jews, as we shall see, are different from Gentiles. Jews have a spiritual purpose, Gentiles a physical one.1 This can be compared to hands and feet.”
“every Jew has the nefesh (life force) of every human being known as the Nefesh HaBahamis (Animal Soul). His additional soul, neshomah, is also known as the Nefesh HoElokis (G-dly Soul).”
Every child small and sweet
Every animal happen to meet
Roaming around for something to eat
All they want is to live, let live
Praising the One who brought them here
Every flower or tree
Just like you, feels your love and have dreams
To bring beauty, delight your eyes
So fill your heart with gratitude
Sit in silence, tune in, try to listen
To the deepest voice within your soul
Feel the melody swaying through
Wiping your tears, tickling your heart
As your eyes dance with joy
فأنا لم اعد أحتمل
أخفي عيني ورا كفتي
كي لا ارى
فأنا لم اعد أحتمل
أنا لم اعد أستطيع
I hide my eyes
So not to see
I can’t anymore
Flowers crushed at the foothill
Daggers slashing lilies in the neighbourhood
Tearing them to pieces
Orphaned Poppies weeping in agony
begging for help
I can’t anymore
A humiliated father, a home pulled down
A terrorised child, a bleeding wound
A mother traumatised, burying her beloved
The blind-hearted, blind-minded
Still splashing his cheeks with blood
Is there more?
I can’t anymore
Sanctuaries desecrated, disgraced
Ostracised Jerusalem pleading for help
To no avail
Arab-leadership, naked and subdued
Monsters against each other
Lambs and sheep in front of invaders
Drunken in the arms of molesters
Who wants more?
I can’t anymore
I hide my eyes
So not to see
I can’t anymore
وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ
Taking Qur’an as the yardstick by which we measure our thoughts, words and actions, it can easily be noticed that the emphasis on the idea that the Ummah should follow the MIDDLE PATH, and not to allow itself to be lead astray by deviating from the natural way, the middle way. Being grounded in moderation, and accepting with dignity and courage, personal responsibility by using one’s own intellect , rather than being a blind follower of another human-being, is an essential part of the Qur’anic message.
However, humans being what they are, -fallible and imperfect, we were unable to live up to this standard, and often surrender our own intellect to others in order to avoid taking responsibility of our thoughts, words and actions.
Many Muslims of today have abandoned their responsibility and surrendered their faculty of thinking to others, call them imams, mullas, scholars or whatever other name.
Emerging out of this many splinter groups and schools of thoughts, including the well known; Salafi and sufi, presenting two opposites on the spectrum of Islamic interpretations.
On the one hand some Wahabbi teachings and practices often exhibit literal, law-like, rigid, hair-splitting, superficial, almost void of understanding the essence of the message, narrow minded interpretation, often dismissive of the mind and intellect in favour of inflexible, literal interpretation” of inherently rich text, attempting to squeeze a universal vast and glorious message into an obsessionally controlled set of rules. Such interpretation eeringly resembles Talmudic methods and Talmudists mindset.
While on the other hand, some Sufi teachings and practices often exhibits vague, esoteric, hierarchal, superstitious interpretation, elevating mortal beings into sacred, holy and infallible beings, often dismissive of the mind and intellect in favour of heart and intuition. Such interpretation eeringly resembles Qabbalistic methods and Qabbalists mindset
I got the shock of my life when I discovered lately that one “Salafi preacher” and another “Sufi master” have actually come together preaching the same sinister message.
So, what do “Salfis” and “Sufis” managed to have in common?
Two opposing poles of Islamic interpretation, Salafism and Sufism have magically merged, meeting in the most peculiar places. They agreed on one thing; the Zionist, traitor and corrupt King Abdullah of Jordan is the long awaited hero who is going to unite the Ummah and liberate Palestine and Al-Aqsa. His son allegedly is going to be the “Mahdi” .
When two opposing poles meet on something so bizarre and so erroneous, is to me a strong enough evidence suggesting these two movements have been long infiltrated and misguided.
Beware my Ummah, some grey individual with sinister agendas have infiltrated Islam.
Here is someone who claims to be a “salafi”, and he calls upon all Muslims to give allegiance to King Abdullah of Jordan:
Here is someone who poses as a “sufi master”, and he also calls upon all Muslims to give allegiance to King Abdullah of Jordan (Minute 33 onwards):

“I remember as a young rabbi working with university students in Johannesburg in the late 1970’s. At that time, they were completely apathetic to Judaism. My colleagues and I were struggling to elicit any meaningful response to Jewish programs on campus. During one particular meeting, we seriously contemplated getting up in the dead of night to spray-paint some swastikas on the Student Union building. Surely, that would get some reaction! ”

“The French philosopher, Jean Paul Sartre, argued that anti-Semitism has been good for the Jews. It has kept Jews Jewish! While no one wants to be oppressed, and we reject anti-Semititsm categorically, the man does have a point. When antisemitism bites, we intuitively know how to respond. But when the world is in a kissing mood, we don’t quite know how to handle it. ”
~~~ Rabbi Yossy Goldman
“I write this article for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors. I write about what the first prime minister of Israel called “cruel Zionism.” I write about it because I was part of it.”

THE JEWS OF IRAQ
They never stop, do they?
I did not see You
But, with the whispers in my heart I knew
Is that possible?
Is it possible, a heart would fall in love,
With whom she never saw?
Can anyone who tasted the sweetness of such love
Can it ever know bitterness?
Or think of running away?
Can prostrating souls
Or ever engage in deception?
Oh my Hope …
I was little girl
Agonized with nostalgia
Went looking for you
Her sanity disintegrated, while searching
Couldn’t find her heartbeats
Her imagination inflamed… wild
Her sight estranged
Mesmerised, pulled up toward Heaven
Hoping to see your face
Longing for purification with your Light
Dreaming of a drop of mercy
Affectionate, tender, blessed with dew
And yearning for one moment of closeness …. Eternal
My Beloved… You are the One who Knows
If kneeling down would be a struggle sometimes
For this frail body, aching and sore
Soul never cease prostrating
Ever satisfied, care not for the pain
The heart tranquil and serene
Does not know fright
Hasten, my heartbeats, race your shadow
Fly above your imagination
Knock at the door of my Beloved
Chant your longing in supreme adoration
Scatter your poetry like shimmering stars
Like flowers, meadows and roses
Like the scent of lavender
Plaited daisies and dandelions
O my heartbeats, align
Standup and sway
Tune in and smile
Throb in devotion… infinite, eternal
In the name of my Beloved, sing
Until you melt away …
And perish …
In the name of my Beloved, sing
Though the donkeys , with their heads bowing down, do not look peaceful to me, they look rather submissive, stupid and enslaved to obey orders and to do their masters’ hard labour.
and stay sane
How can a brain digest all this lunacy
and stay sane
As flakes of love
Hold a baby in my arms
I have seen too much
Pull out my heart
Shake it well, inside out
The Source of America’s Wars – Kristol Clear
Maybe some of the alleged “supporters” of Palestine would find this interesting, and maybe they would like to join Abe Foxman in his struggle of “fighting antisemitism“… He does it with the same logic and passion as they do:
“The Deadliest Lies: The Israeli Lobby and the Myth of Jewish Control”
Recorded on October 29, 2007
Location: The Heritage Foundation’s Lehrman Auditorium
Abraham Foxman – noted representative of the Jewish community and staunch defender of human rights – delivers a powerful rebuttal to the idea of “The Israel Lobby” and the myth of a global Jewish conspiracy. He shows how old stereotypes associated with the most virulent forms of bigotry have been resurfacing and taking subtle new forms and addresses the public figures who make these beliefs appear credible. He also reveals a disturbing parallel trend: the decline of global Jewish solidarity, which he argues is critical for dealing with current threats.
Abraham H. Foxman is the National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and one of today’s leading voices against hatred, discrimination, and violence across the world. He is also the author of Never Again?: The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism.
“a sober, methodical, and laudably dispassionate indictment of well-known politicians, pundits, and professors who dress up centuries-old canards about Jews in more acceptable twenty-first century garb;”
– Robert Satloff, Executive Director, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy
Since the number of Muslim population in USA is about 7 million, and Jewish Population estimated about 5.5 million, the question is how many “supremacist jihadis who are plotting to create a world Caliphate” have made it to the White House, Congress, Senate, and Pentagon? How many Muhammed and Ali have been appointed as Chief of Staff in the Homeland Security Department?
Let us look at “antisemitism” is in USA for example, which Abe Foxman and many in the Palestine Solidarity Movement are determined to fight and put an end to.
Let us find out how rampant and how disturbing the “discrimination against Jews” is:

The former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst with expertise in Iranian policy issues who worked in the office of Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith and reported directly to Feith’s deputy, William Luti, was sentenced January 20, 2006, “to more than 12 years in prison for giving classified information to an Israeli diplomat” and members of the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Under Secretary of Defense and Policy Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close associate of Perle and served as his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others, Feith is pro-Israel. He is closely associated with the Zionist Organization of America. Feith runs a small law firm, Feith and Zell, which only has one International office, in Israel. The majority of their legal work is representing Israeli interests. His firm’s own website stated, prior to his appointment, that Feith “represents Israeli Armaments Manufacturer.” Feith also came from the Jewish thinktank JINSA.
Feith was investigated by the FBI under suspicion of leaking classified information to Israel, being that he was Larry Franklin’s boss when Franklin leaked those documents to Rosen and Weissman of AIPAC. For that he was forced to leave the National Security Council. Feith was also investigated by the Senate Intelligence Committee for ‘intelligence’ that was used to justify invading Iraq.

The so called “Jewish-Israeli lobby” is not a mere external force which exerts pressure from the outside through organizations like AIPAC, by the use of funding and finance. NO, it is an INTERNAL force that works from the HEART of the SYSTEM. It is the Policy-makers, the Think Tanks, the Advisors and the Legislation & Decision makers:
Why is it that their number are EXPONENTIALLY OVER REPRESENTED in such HIGH and SENSITIVE positions?
Presidents get elected, they come and go, yet these power structures are almost permanent features. They move from one position to another, swapping places as if playing musical chairs. They participate heavily, robustly, and disproportionally with immense weight and pressure, in making the rules of the game, while simultaneously crying “antisemitism”. It would sound hilarious if the lives of millions are not affected by it, and if didn’t have such serious and catastrophic consequences on World Peace.
Are we supposed to shut our minds, smother our logic and blindly believe that such bizarre phenomenon is a mere series of brilliant coincidences due to good fortune and pure luck? or are we supposed to swallow the lie that it is just a natural organic occurrence, due to the merits of their “multiple talents” and “superior intelligence” which makes them rise to the top spontaneously as “natural high achievers”?
Give me a break, I say, ENOUGH insulting of our intelligence.
حكاية طفلة من فلسطين
طفلةً كانت… صغيرة… وشقية
تتددحرج في اسطوانة علاها الصدا
من أعلى الحاكورة
الى سفح الجبل
وإذا يوماً ما اعتراها التعب
جلست تتأمل …
تناجي حبات الرمان
تداعب اللوزات بالحجر وتمزح مع الليمون
تحكي قصة الأخيار لزهر البرتقال
وتسرد الأخبار للتفاح والخروب والزعرور
طفلةً كانت… صغيرة… وشقية
ترشف عطر السوسن البري مع ندى الصباح
تلاحق الفراش تسابق الأطيار
تملأ جرار الماء تفرغها في الأزيار
من فتافيت الزجاج ترسم النوافذ
ومن الحصى والطوب تصنع الحيطان
ومع بنات الحارة تشارك الصبيان
تزغرد وتغني بزفة العرسان
“في لعبة “العروس والعريس
يعانق رأسها المجدول بالغيوم
حضن الجدة الحنون
وسادةً… لا أرقَّ ولا أجمل
تداعب شعرها الأجعد
يد دافئة ناعمة حانية … كما الجنة
وصوت عذب مخملي كصوت ملاك
يحكي لها الحكايا لعلها تنام
باسمة القلب والشفتين تغفو … تحلم بالسنونو
بجناحين رقيقين تطير
فوق كروم العنب وحقل التين والزيتون
طفلةً كانت… صغيرة… وشقية
وذات ليلة وردية المشاعر ما بها قمر
تلألأت سماؤها بثوب من الألماس
غفا السكون في أحضانها ملاكاً وادع الأنفاس
تلك البهية ليلتي سأنام في العليّة
سأحصي نجوم الكون
وسأكشف عن أسرارها
لن أغفل عن أيٍّ منها لن أنسى منها شيئا
الليلة دون ريب سأعلم الحقيقة
سأحصي نجوم الكون… نجماً نجما
ولإن أنا أمعنت في التحديق
لربما رأيت ذاك الذي أبدع الأكوان
وزين السماء بالنجوم
همست بعينيها الضاحكة الشقية
رنت بعينيها بعيــــــــــــداً للسما
سلب الجمال لبها
طار منها العقل وتبعثر البصر
لكنها ما استسلمت
بدأت تعد نجومها
نجماً نجما…. نجماً نجما
ومنذ ذاك الحين
لليوم ما انتهت
“It is of course “anti-semitic” to investigate the names and background of the authors of this “strategy”
Poking into the wasp’s nest is BAAAD
We must only see them as “Americans”, nothing else!”
“Yes I have looked at but not studied in detail the Yinon plan. it is obviously still influential but, as Israel Shahak remarks, it also has the crazy and delusional characteristic of any ethno-supremacist grouping. ( cf Hitlers plan to take over Russia, Europe and even the US, or the Islamic jihadist plan for a world Caliphate). The notion that a tiny state of 7m people can become a world power is truly delusional, especially when its chief sponsor cannot defeat Afghan tribesman or Vietnamese peasant armies. The US is also economically bankrupt through the dominance of the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex, and the criminal financial machinations of Wall St”
From someone who defines himself as a Jewish, anti-Zionist, he came up with a bizarre, out of place comment. Instead of EXAMINING the EVIDENCE provided, challenging it or proving it wrong, he chose to use a thinly concealed ad hominem attack and subliminal accusations of “antisemitism”:
“Henry Ford had 500,000 copies of the “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” printed. Perhaps we should see if there any copies still floating around that we could obtain……“
Why using a trick of an old frayed fig leaf and drag the “protocols” into an intellectual quest for truth?
Is it an attempt to smother the debate about this sensitive topic by intimidating people into silence, or is it to conceal incompetence, dishonesty and intellectual lack of integrity?
At least they are confirmed to be not forgery but rather very authentic !
Just a taster:
- Some quotes from Mishneh Torah, NOT from the “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” :
6) The obligation to destroy the seven nations living in the Land of Canaan;
7) The prohibition against allowing any one of them to remain alive;
8 ) The obligation to destroy the descendents of Amalek;
Israel was commanded to fulfill three mitzvot upon entering the Promised Land:
a) To choose a king, as Deuteronomy 17:15 states: ‘Appoint a king over yourselves;’
b) To wipe out the descendents of Amalek, as Deuteronomy 25:19 states: ‘Erase the memory of Amalek;’
“A king should not wage other wars before a milchemet mitzvah. What is considered as milchemet mitzvah? The war against the seven nations who occupied Eretz Yisrael, the war against Amalek, and a war fought to assist Israel from an enemy which attacks them.
Afterwards, he may wage a milchemet hareshut, (war of aggression) i.e. a war fought with other nations in order to expand the borders of Israel or magnify its greatness and reputation.”
“War, neither a milchemet hareshut or a milchemet mitzvah, should not be waged against anyone until they are offered the opportunity of peace as Deuteronomy 20:10 states: ‘When you approach a city to wage war against it, you should propose a peaceful settlement.’
If the enemy accepts the offer of peace and commits itself to the fulfillment of the seven mitzvot that were commanded to Noah’s descendents, none of them should be killed. Rather, they should be subjugated as ibid.:11 states: ‘They shall be your subjects and serve you.’
If they agree to tribute, but do not accept subjugation or if they accept subjugation, but do not agree to tribute, their offer should not be heeded. They must accept both.
The subjugation they must accept consists of being on a lower level, scorned and humble. They must never raise their heads against Israel, but must remain subjugated under their rule. They may never be appointed over a Jew in any matter whatsoever.“
“A gentile who gave a Jew a blow is liable to die for causing even the most minimal damage.”
“A gentile who studies the Torah is obligated to die. They should only be involved in the study of their seven mitzvot.
Similarly, a gentile who rests, even on a weekday, observing that day as a Sabbath, is obligated to die. Needless to say, he is obligated for that punishment if he creates a festival for himself.”
- quotes from Tanya, NOT from the “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”
“For in the [case of the] Jew, this soul of kelipah is derived from the kelipah called “nogah”, which also contains good; and the good within this nefesh gives rise to these positive natural traits.
והיא מסוד עץ הדעת טוב ורע
מה שאין כן נפשות אומות העולם הן משאר קליפות טמאות שאין בהן טוב כלל
The souls of the nations of the world, however, emanate from the other, unclean kelipot which contain no good whatever,
כמו שכתוב בעץ חיים שער מ״ט פרק ג׳: וכל טיבו דעבדין האומות לגרמייהו עבדין
as is written in Etz Chayim, Portal 49, ch. 3, that all the good that the nations do, is done out of selfish motives.
Since their nefesh emanates from kelipot which contain no good, it follows that any good done by them is for selfish motives.”
“The kindness of the nations is sin” — that all the charity and kindness done by the nations of the world is only for their self-glorification…”
“When a Jew acts in a benevolent manner he is motivated mainly out of concern for the welfare of his fellow. The proof of this is that were his fellow not to need his help, this would give him greater pleasure than the gratification derived from his act of kindness.
Concerning the nations of the world, however, this is not so. Their motivation is not the welfare of their fellow; rather, it stems from a self-serving motive — the desire for self-glorification, a feeling of gratification, and the like.”
- A quote from Torat HaMelech, NOT from the “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”
“The Rambam wrote in chapter 1, law 1 of the Laws of Murder
Anyone who kills a Jew transgresses a negative commandment, as it says, “Do not murder”. And, if he did it with malice in front of witnesses he is killed with the sword.
The commentary here suggests that the prohibition of “Do Not Murder” related only between Jews, and not for a Jew who kills a non-Jew even if the non-Jew is from one of the righteous nations of the world. Also, in the book Fearers of God it’s written that killing a non-Jew is not considered a transgression of the commandment “Do Not Murder” at all. And so, the Minchat Chinuch wrote:
One should not kill a single person, as it says, “Do not murder”-…but the killing of a non-Jew and even a righteous inhabitant of the Land of Israel that has accepted upon himself the Seven Commandments of Noah’s Offspring are not included in this prohibition
From what we currently have in our hands and understand about the verse “Do Not Murder” it’s impossible to learn the prohibition of killing a non-Jew.”
- Quotes from Talmud, NOT from the “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”
1. Yebamoth 57b: A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation; if a levir cohabited with her, he has thereby acquired herShe is deemed to be his legal wife.
2. Yebamoth 60a: There was a certain town in the Land of Israel the legitimacy of whose inhabitants was disputed, and Rabbi sent R. Romanos who conducted an enquiry and found in it the daughter of a proselyte who was under the age of three years and one day, and Rabbi declared her eligible to live with a priest.
3. Yebamoth 60b: R. Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest,13 for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phinehas surely was with them. And the Rabbis?
4. Yebamoth 60b: Consequently21 it must be said that Scripture speaks of one who is fit[22 ]
I.e., one who had attained the age of three years and one day.
5. Sanhedrin 55b: A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his.
Kethuboth 11b: When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this,6 it is as if one puts the finger into the eye.
7. Sanhedrin 54b footnote 26: Lev. XVIII, 22. Thus the point of comparison is the sexual matureness of woman, which is reached at the age of three.
Sanhedrin 69a: A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her, she becomes his.
Yebamoth 12b: From the age of eleven years and one day until the age of twelve years and one day. One who is under,16 or over this age17 must carry on her marital intercourse in the usual manner.
Apart from Zionist-controlled media sources, can you please show us the hard evidence for the existence of “the jihadist plans for a world caliphate“?
- Where were the plans published?
- What are the “jihadist” plan for the world?
- What are their strategies?
- Which Qur’anic verses are they using in order to justify their “plans of taking over the world”?
- How far are the “jihadists” in their plans?How many of their “men” are being inserted in sensitive and crucial positions in many governments?

- Where is the “jihadists”lobby? and how strong is it in US, UK and Europe?
- What do “jihadists” “plan” to do with non-Muslims?
- When did the “jihadist” of Wall Street warn US president about meddling in their affairs?

- In which media outlets is the mention of “jihadists” and their “plans” a forbidden taboo, yet the “antisemitic” rhetoric flourishes unchallenged?From Main Stream Media to alternative news, from the far Right to the far Left, from Hollywood fiction to intellectual academia, in which of these platforms, the mention of “jihadists” and their “plans” is a forbidden taboo and a red line which would cost people their livelihoods and even lives if they dared to cross?
- Bearing in mind that Muslims today make more than one fifth of world population, i.e at least ONE out of FIVE people in the world is a Muslim, how big was the “jihadists” success in influencing and shaping the Congress legislation?
This kind of MSM hate-mongering, fear-mongering mantra, resonating as if a headline out of a cheap tabloid newspaper, echoing in a vacuum, being presented as a “reason” to dismiss real strategic information sources, to dismiss the strong links between them, and to dismiss hard solid facts is really alarming… Where is the intellectual integrity? one is compelled to ask
Now what is the truth about “Caliphate”?
- What does the word “Caliphate” actually means?
- Does it exist in the Qur’an? and if it does, in what context?
Like many Arabic words; Jihad, Fatwa, Dhimmi, Shari’a etc, which were snatched out of the Arabic language, made it into the front pages of MSM, eviscerated and ripped off of their true meanings, distorted, twisted and bended beyond recognition to be used by ZIONISTS and their alibis to foment hatred against Islam, to serve their hate-fear-mongering programme, and justify THEIR wars of aggression planned and executed against many countries in the Muslim world, to suite the Zionist agenda, so is the word Khalifah.
Even the online “free dictionary” follows the same distortion without providing any evidence whatsoever:
khalifah – the civil and religious leader of a Muslim state considered to be a representative of Allah on earth; “many radical Muslims believe a Khalifah will unite all Islamic lands and people and subjugate the rest of the world”
Such twisting and misrepresentation in the realm of “war of ideas” presented as “information” couldn’t be further from truth, as every person with slightest exposure to, or knowledge of Islam would be able to verify.
Coming back to the word Caliph, it is a translation from the Arabic word khalifa (خليفة, khalīfah) meaning successor, representative, vicegerent, care-taker, substitute, which is used in the Qur’an to establish mankind’s role as representatives of God on earth in the sense of living by God’s names, attributes and principles of JUSTICE and COMPASSION, to take care of, protect and establish JUST and COMPASSIONATE societies.
The true meaning is that EVERY HUMAN BEING is given the responsibility of a care-taker of earth and life on it , NOT a “the civil and religious leader of a Muslim state considered to be a representative of Allah”
Kalifah describes the real nature of man’s (as in all mankind) role on earth; a care-taker.
The term Caliph (خليفة khalīfah) is also used as a title for the ruler, a head of state of Islamic Ummah indicating his responsibilities and duties.
(Ummah: a community which accepts Islam out of their own freewill and accepted to live by general set of moral principles as presented in the Qur’an).
leaders of the Muslim nation were called Khalifat Rasul Allah, the political successors to the messenger of God (referring to Muhammad). Khalīfah can be a female also, as Sitt Al-Mulk of Egypt circa 11th century. Some wives of Khalifas, such as Zaynab an-Nafzawiyyah and Al-Khazuran bin Atta, wielded great influence during the era of their husbands rule.
Sharia’a is the Arabic word for “the road to the watering place” In a religious context, it means “the righteous path“.
Shari’a is not a rigid set of Laws, but rather a Set of Principles through which one is expected to align him/herself with and strive to achieve JUSTICE which lies at the heart of Shari’a and considered its foremost aim, using whatever means of human wisdom, knowledge, comprehension, effort and capacity to establish and nourish.
These are, the six principles of shariah which is concluded from the Qur’an by Muslim scholars:
1. The right to the protection of life.
2. The right to the protection of family.
3. The right to the protection of education.
4. The right to the protection of religion.
5. The right to the protection of property (access to resources).
6. The right to the protection of human dignity.
It must be mentioned also that Shari’a does NOT by any means apply to Non-Muslim, it can ONLY be applied for those who out of their own freewill chose to live by Islam as a philosophy of life, faith and set of principles, otherwise it will contradict the major Qur’anic principle “No compulsion in religion”.
Despite all the incessant fear-mongering against the word Sharia,witch has infected almost every corner in the Western mind and sphere of thinking, yet the word Noahide Laws -which has already been adopted by many countries in the world, did not even surface, it is a taboo which no one talks about and is never discussed in the Islam-crazed Media, very few have even heard of.
If you don’t know yet what Noahide Laws are, you can begin your research with Jewish Halachiac Laws for GENTILES
Th word Khalifah in the Qur’an:
“Behold thy Lord said to the angels: “I will create a vicegerent on earth.” They said “Wilt thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood? Whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?” He said: “I know what ye know not.” “(2:30)
وَإِذۡ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةِ إِنِّى جَاعِلٌ۬ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ خَلِيفَةً۬ۖ قَالُوٓاْ أَتَجۡعَلُ فِيہَا مَن يُفۡسِدُ فِيہَا وَيَسۡفِكُ ٱلدِّمَآءَ وَنَحۡنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمۡدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَۖ قَالَ إِنِّىٓ أَعۡلَمُ مَا لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ
Major Qur’anic Principles:
(If not applied or manifested, if disrespected or abused, the blame is on the followers of Islam, not the documented principles)
Justice is the core of Islam
“O ye who believe! be steadfast firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, Let NOT a group’s hostility to you cause you to deviate from JUSTICE. Be JUST, for it is closer to piety. Be God conscious; for God is Well Aware of what you do.” (Qur’an; 5-8 )
“We thus made you an impartial community, that you may serve as witnesses among the people, and the messenger serves as a witness among you” (2:143)
“No soul shall be made to bear the liability of another.” (35:18 )
“God commands justice, the doing of good, and kindness to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and antagonism: He advices you, that ye may be reminded.” (16-90)
“God doth command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they are due; and when ye judge between people that ye judge with justice: verily how excellent is the teaching which He giveth you! for God is He who heareth and seeth all things” (4:58)
“The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from God; for (God) loveth not those who are wrong-doers”. (42:40)
“O you who believe, equivalence is the law decreed for you when dealing with murder … If one is pardoned by the victim’s kin, an appreciative response is in order, and an equitable compensation shall be paid. This is alleviation from your Lord and mercy. Anyone who transgresses beyond this incurs a painful retribution.” (2:178)
“And if you punish, you shall inflict an equivalent punishment. But if you resort to patience (instead of retribution), it would be better for the patient ones”. (16:126)
“You shall hand over to the orphans their rightful properties. Do not substitute the bad for the good, and do not consume their properties by combining them with yours. This would be a gross injustice.” (4:2)
“You shall test the orphans when they reach puberty. As soon as you find them mature enough, give them their property. Do not consume it extravagantly in a hurry, before they grow up” (4:6)
“O you who believe, do not consume each others’ properties illicitly. Only mutually acceptable transactions are permitted. You shall not kill yourselves. GOD is Merciful towards you.” (4:29)
Equality and brotherhood of mankind: No racism… No superiority… No tribalism but kindness and respect to the other;
“Ye who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for God can best protect both. Follow not the desires (of your hearts) (4:135)
“O mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to recognize one another. Truly, the most honoured of you in God’s sight is the greatest of you in righteousness. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware”. (49.13)
“And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for those who know”.(30-22)
“Had God willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To God is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you of everything you had disputed” (5:48)
“An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over a white” saying of Muhammed
Islam forbids aggression:
Muslims do NOT believe in wars of aggression, and NO war is “holy” according to Islamic tradition, but the Qur’an permits self defence, when you are occupied, attacked, oppressed, unable to negotiate constructively and effectively, when your rights are violated and when you are prevented from living your life in a dignified and free manner, then and ONLY then you have the PERMISSION to fight back
‘You may fight in the cause of God against those who fight you, but DO NOT INITIATE AGGRESSION. God does not love transgressors.’ (Quran; 2.190)
“ There is the type of man whose speech about this world’s life may dazzle thee and he calls God to witness about what is in his heart; yet is he the most contentious of foes. And when he turns away, he roams the earth corruptingly, destroying properties and lives. God does not love corruption” (2:204-205)
Islam gives the permission to fighting BACK and resisting oppressive and tyrannical regimes in defence of the oppressed
“And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of God, and on behalf of those who are weak, ill treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town (to freedom) whose people are oppressors; and raise for us, out of Thy Grace, a protector, and raise for us, out of Thy Grace, one who will bring us victory.” (4:75)
“To those against whom war is made, PERMISSION is given (to fight back), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid; (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,-(for no cause) except that they say, our Lord is God”. (22:39-40)
“ You shall not kill any person – for God has made life sacred – except in the course of justice. If one is killed unjustly, then we give his heir authority to enforce justice. Thus, he shall not exceed the limits in avenging the murder, he will be helped.” (17:33)
“ You may fight those who wage war against you, and you may evict them whence they evicted you. Oppression is worse than murder” (2:191)
“Show forgiveness, speak for justice and avoid the ignorant.” (7:199)
“But show them forgiveness, and say “Peace!” and soon shall they know!” (43; 89)
‘If they seek peace, then seek you peace. And trust in God for He is the One that heareth and knoweth all things.’ (8.61)
“But God does call to the Home of Peace” (10-25)
Islam calls for democracy, religious tolerance, calls for freedom of thought and protection of the individual’s right to choose his/her ideology“No compulsion in religion or ideology” (2:256)
“Say: O you that reject Faith! I worship not that which you worship, and you do not worship that which I worship… To you be your Way, and to me mine”. (109:1-6)
The verse “no compulsion in religion” (2:256) and the verse “To you your religion, to me my religion” (109:6) have been interpreted in the Islamic legal and theological traditions to mean that the followers of other religions should not be forced to adopt Islam. Also they have been used as a “proof-text for pluralism and coexistence” and they served to implement tolerance of other religions under Muslim rule.
لَآ إِكۡرَاهَ فِى ٱلدِّينِۖ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ ٱلرُّشۡدُ مِنَ ٱلۡغَىِّۚ فَمَن يَكۡفُرۡ بِٱلطَّـٰغُوتِ وَيُؤۡمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدِ ٱسۡتَمۡسَكَ بِٱلۡعُرۡوَةِ ٱلۡوُثۡقَىٰ لَا ٱنفِصَامَ لَهَاۗ وَٱللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ (٢٥٦)
“Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And God heareth and knoweth all things” (2.256)
“Proclaim: “This is the truth from your Lord,” then whoever wills let him believe, and whoever wills let him disbelieve” (18:29)
قُلۡ يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرُونَ (١) لَآ أَعۡبُدُ مَا تَعۡبُدُونَ (٢) وَلَآ أَنتُمۡ عَـٰبِدُونَ مَآ أَعۡبُدُ (٣) وَلَآ أَنَا۟ عَابِدٌ۬ مَّا عَبَدتُّمۡ (٤) وَلَآ أَنتُمۡ عَـٰبِدُونَ مَآ أَعۡبُدُ (٥) لَكُمۡ دِينُكُمۡ وَلِىَ دِينِ (٦)
“Say : O ye that reject Faith!
I worship not that which ye worship,
Nor will ye worship that which I worship.
And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship,
Nor will ye worship that which I worship
To you be your religion and to me mine.”
“Had God willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To God is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you of everything you had disputed” (5:48)
“We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will)”. (76:3)
“Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity”. (3:104)
“And their affairs are (conducted) through consultation among themselves.” (42:38 )
“If any one does a righteous deed, it ensures to the benefit of his own soul; if he does evil, it works against (his own soul). In the end will you (all) be brought back to your Lord”. (45; 15)
“Each of you chooses the direction to follow; you shall race towards righteousness. Wherever you may be, God will summon you all. God is Omnipotent.” (2:148)
“They respond to their Lord by observing the Contact Prayers. Their affairs are decided after due consultation among themselves, and from our provisions to them they give (to charity)” (42:38)
“They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.” (39:18)
Islam calls for respect of people of other ideologies and religions: Every one will be judged fairly, salvation is for all good-doers, not just Muslims:
” Anyone who does an atom weight of good shall see it, and and anyone who does an atom weight of evil shall see it” (99:7-8)
“Those who believe, and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (2.062)
“Anyone seeking dignity should know that to God belongs all dignity. To Him ascends the good words, and He exalts the righteous works. As for those who scheme evil works, they incur severe retribution; the scheming of such people is destined to fail” (35:10)
“Say: “O people of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not from among ourselves Lords and patrons other than God .” If then they turn back, say: ye! “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to God’s will).” (3:64)
“Whoever wrongs one with whom a treaty has been made ( dhimmi) and lays on him a burden beyond his strength, I will be his accuser” Hadith (saying of Muhammed)
“One who kills a man under covenant (peace treaty) will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise” Hadith (saying of Muhammed)
Islam FORBIDS USURY and rejects financial systems which are built upon interest, debt and the exploitation of the poor, and promotes kindness and charity as the foundation of caring society:
“O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied; but be God-conscious. That ye may (really) prosper” (3:130)
“Woe to those that deal in fraud, Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure, But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. Do they not think that they will be called to account?”(83:1-4)
“If the debtor is in a difficulty, grant him time till it is easy for him to repay. But if ye remit it by way of charity, that is best for you if ye only knew”. (2:280)
“God will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity: For He loveth not creatures ungrateful and wicked. Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. O ye who believe! Be God-conscious, and give up what remains of your demand for usury, if ye are indeed believers.”(2: 276-278 )
”Those who devour usury will not stand except as stands one whom the Evil One by his touch hath driven to madness. That is because they say: “Trade is like usury, but God hath permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; their case is for God (to judge); but those who repeat (the offence) are companions of the Fire: they will abide therein (for ever)” (2:275)“God will deprive usury of all blessing, but will give increase for deeds of charity: for He loveth not creatures ungrateful and wicked” (2:276)
“Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve” (2:277)
“O ye who believe! fear God and give up what remains of your demand for usury, if ye are indeed believers” (2:278)
“If ye do it not, take notice of war from God and His Messenger: but if ye repent ye shall have your capital sums; deal not unjustly and ye shall not be dealt with unjustly” (2:279)
Islam goes beyond social justice to compassion and generosity:
So he who gives (in charity) and is God-conscious, and (in all sincerity) confirms the good, We will pave his way to bliss. But he who is a greedy, stingy and thinks himself self-sufficient, and denies the good, We will indeed pave his way to Misery. His wealth will not be of any help to him when he falls headlong (into the Pit)” (92:1-11)
“Do you know who really rejects the faith? That is the one who mistreats the orphans. And does not advocate the feeding of the poor. And woe to those who observe the contact prayers – who are totally heedless of their prayers. They only show off. And they forbid charity.” (107:1-7)
“They ask you about giving: say, “The charity you give shall go to the parents, the relatives, the orphans, the poor, and the travelling foreigner.” Any good you do, God is fully aware thereof.” (2:215)
“Part of their money is set aside. For the poor and the needy.” (70:24-25)
“By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love; and whatever ye give, God knoweth it well” (3:92)
“So he who gives (in charity) and is God-conscious, and (in all sincerity) confirms the good, We will pave his way to bliss. But he who is a greedy, stingy and thinks himself self-sufficient, and denies the good, We will indeed pave his way to Misery. His wealth will not be of any help to him when he falls headlong (into the Pit)” (92:1-11)
“ (You shall give) to the needy who immigrated. They were evicted from their homes and deprived of their properties, because they sought God’s grace and pleasure” (59:8)
Islam liberates, dignifies and restores the rights of women:
“The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey God and His Messenger. On them will God pour His mercy: for God is Exalted in power, Wise”. (9:71)
“If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female – and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them”. (3-124)
“Then shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom’s weight of evil, shall see it”. (99:7-8 )
“It is He who created you from a single soul, and made its mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love)”. (7:189)
“And among His Signs is this: He created for you mates from among yourselves that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He plants love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. (30-21)
“For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for truthful men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in God’s praise; for them has God prepared forgiveness and great reward”. (33:35)
“The divorcees also shall be provided for, equitably. This is a duty upon the righteous.” (2:241)
“If a couple fears separation, you shall appoint an mediator from his family and an mediator from her family; if they decide to reconcile, God will help them get together” (4:35)
Islam calls for equality of mankind; no man is a slave for another:
“Did we not show him the two paths? He should choose the difficult path. Which one is the difficult path? The freeing of slaves, and feeding, during the time of hardship. (90:10-14)
“Righteousness is not turning your faces towards the east or the west. Righteous are those who believe in God, the Last Day, the angels, the scripture, and the prophets; and they give the money, cheerfully, to the relatives, the orphans, the needy, the travelling foreigners, the beggars, and to free the slaves” (2:177)
”Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, in secret, and in public, have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve” (2:274)
“Charities shall go to the poor, the needy, the workers who collect them, the new converts, to free the slaves, to those burdened by sudden expenses, in the cause of God, and to the travelling foreigners. Such is God’s commandment. God is Omniscient, Most Wise” (9:60)
Islam calls for equality before the law, no man is infallible:
“GOD knows best about your belief, and you are equal to one another, as far as belief is concerned” (4:25)
“He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away. When the blind man came to him. How do you know? He may purify himself. Or he may take heed, and benefit from the message. As for the rich man. You gave him your attention. Even though you could not guarantee his salvation. The one who came to you eagerly. And is really reverent. You ignored him. Indeed, this is a reminder.” (80:1-11)
Islam calls for open-mindedness and using one’s intellect:
“Let the human reflect on his creation.” (86:5)
“We made the Qur’an easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?” (54:17)
“You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.” (17:36)
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day,― there are indeed Signs for men of understanding. Men who celebrate the praises of God standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (with the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire” (3: 190-191)
“They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.” (39:18)
Islam calls for honest dealing, protection of human dignity and the right to privacy:
“Woe to every backbiter, slanderer.” (104:1)
“O you who believe, you shall avoid any suspicion, for even a little bit of suspicion is sinful. You shall not spy on one another, nor shall you backbite one another; this is as abominable as eating the flesh of your dead brother. You certainly abhor this. You shall observe God. God is Redeemer, Most Merciful.” (49:12)
“It was mercy from God that you became compassionate towards them. Had you been harsh and mean-hearted, they would have abandoned you. Therefore, you shall pardon them and ask forgiveness for them, and consult them” (3:159)
“And do not eat up your property among yourselves for vanities, nor use it as bait for the judges, with intent that ye may eat up wrongfully and knowingly a little of (other) people’s property” (2:188)
“Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity followed by injury. God is free of all wants, and He is Most Forbearing” (2:263)
“O ye who believe! Cancel not your charity by reminders of your generosity or by injury― like those who spend their substance to be seen of men” (2:264)
“O ye who believe! Give of the good things which ye have (honourably) earned, and of the fruits of the earth which We have produced for you, and do not even aim at getting anything which is bad in order, that out of it ye may give away something, when ye yourselves would not receive it except with closed eyes. And know that God is Free of all wants and Worthy of all praise” (2:267)
“You shall give full weight and full measure when you trade, equitably” (6:152)
“O my people, you shall give full measure and full weight, equitably. Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly” (11:85)
Islam hold parents in the highest esteem:
“And We have enjoined on the human being in (regard to) his two parents – his mother bore him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning was two years – Give thanks to Me and to your parents. To Me is the goal. But if they strive with you to associate with Me (gods) you do not know about, then do not obey them. But keep company with them both in the world in an honourable manner, and follow the path of who repents to Me. Then I will tell you what you have worked.” (31:14-15)
”And We have enjoined on the human being in (regard to) his two parents the most beautiful conduct. But if they strive with you to associate with Me (gods) you do not know about, then do not obey them. You all will return to Me and I will tell you what you have worked” (29: 8)”And We have enjoined on the human being in (regard to) his two parents the most beautiful conduct. His mother bore him under duress and brought him forth under duress. And his bearing and his weaning was thirty months. At length, when he reaches the age of forty, he says, “My Lord and Sustainer, grant to me that I am thankful for the graciousness that You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may work righteousness pleasing to You, and make my offspring righteous. Surely I turn to You and surely I am of those who submit (to You).” (46:15)
”Your Lord has commanded that you shall not worship (anyone) but Him and to be good to the parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) ‘Ugh’ nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word. And lower for them ‘the wings of humility’ out of mercy; and pray; ‘O my Lord! Have mercy on them as they brought me up (when I was) little.’” (17:23-24)
”O Prophet) say, “Come, I will read out to you the sacred rules your Lord and Sustainer has given you: That you do not associate anything as a partner with Him. That you give beautiful conduct to the two parents. That you do not kill your children fearing flat poverty – We will provide for you and for them. That you do not even go near lewdness, neither the obvious nor the hidden. That you do not kill the life that God has made sacred, except in the truth (of what has been commanded). That is what He has enjoined upon you in order that you become intelligent.” (6:151)“O humankind! Be in awe of your Lord and Sustainer, He who created you all from a single soul, and created from it her mate, and from the two of them brought forth many men and women. Be in awe of God and of the wombs (that bore you). Surely God is watching over you.”(4: 1)
Islam calls for striving for perfecting of human values and elevating the standard of morality:
Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, declared “Verily I was sent to this World to define (and live by) the Generous Temperament.”
According to him, the codes of Generous Temperament (makarem elakhlaq) are seven:
“Pardoning those who have oppressed you
Giving to those who have deprived you
Connecting with those who have shunned you
Benefiting those who have abused you
Counselling those who have deceived you
Forgiving those who have maligned you
Forbearing with those who have angered you.”
Prophet Muhammad also said:
“God, said: O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another.”
“You will never enter Paradise until you become believers, and you will not become believers until you love each other.”
“None of you truly believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself”
“God has no mercy on one who has no mercy for others.”
“The most excellent Jihad is that for the conquest of self”
“Do not belittle any act of kindness, even that of greeting your brother with a cheerful countenance.”
“God does not judge you according to your appearance and your wealth, but He looks at your hearts and looks into your deeds”
” Who is the most favoured of God? He, from whom the greatest good comes to His creatures”
“The most excellent Jihad is that for the conquest of self”
“It is difficult for a man laden with riches to climb the steep path, that leads to bliss”
“Who are the learned? Those who practice what they know.”
“Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith.”
“Whoever is kind, God will be kind to him; therefore be kind to man on the earth. He Who is in heaven will show mercy on you”
” God has revealed to me, that you must be humble. No one should boast over one another, and no one should oppress another”
“Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people”
“The most perfect in faith amongst believers is he who is best in manner and kindest to his wife.”
“Practice humility until no one oppresses or belittles another”
“A believer is not one who eats his fill while his next door neighbour goes hungry.”
“A good word is charity”
Followed by this email:
If they don’t want to stand being accused of smothering debate and concealment of truths, i.e intellectual dishonesty, then they must STOP using such methods, accusing others of antisemitism when they fail to refute the evidence or provide counter evidence.
These are pathetic, useless and cowardly methods; ad hominem attacks, rather than challenging facts, shooting the messenger rather than rebutting the argument, excommunication rather than having spine and defending their case .
If their aim is to “prevent antisemitism” and to stop “hatred against Jews”, my aim is to prevent supremacy and anti-humanism and to stop powerful Jewish-Zionist networks from HURTING and HARMING to DEATH Palestinians and many more in other parts of the world
Let it also be known, that the world is changing, people began to see that which was hidden, and many are no longer willing to be subjugated to such reprehensible treatment.

I don’t want your gold and silver
I don’t want your shiny coins
I can’t stand your golden calf
I don’t like your silly games

Fill its oceans, wash the sky
Colour a rainbow all in between
With my doll holding onto me
Run towards the edge of the universe
Where heaven jumps down to kiss the earth
Near the bush where sparrows pray
There I’d sit calmly and wait
Until its all over
