What I said was, “the Arabic word for ‘the sugar’ is ‘as-sukkar.’”
What I wanted to say was “ISLAM IS NOT A LANGUAGE.”
Jalees Rehman claims that German introspection after World War II resulted in a better Germany, and that USA Muslims should adopt this introspection in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. An obstacle to introspection is “perpetual victimhood.”
While we plan our operations which fill them with terror, we must also work long-term to destroy their societies. Therefore, we must do all we can to send to the United States “illiterate, unskilled, low-skill workers” and our sick, elderly relatives and put them on “supplemental security and Medicare.”
One of the reasons for our training bases in Mexico and our efforts at entering the United States through its border with Mexico is to connect our operatives with Wael al-Kuwayti, who has been active in the enemy’s southwestern deserts for over six decades. When our operatives reach him, he will instruct them on the use of dozens of important weapons systems.
Andrew Sullivan, Founding Editor of The Daily Dish and former editor at The New Republic, responded to Glenn Greenwald’s column criticizing calling the Boston Marathon bombing attacks terrorism based on publicly available knowledge.
And when will they grasp that a religion that does not entirely eschew violence (like the Gospels or Buddhism) will likely produce violence when its extremist loners seek meaning in a bewildering multicultural modern world? This was an act of Jihad. That does not mean we elevate it above crime; it means we understand the nature of the crime. It only makes sense in the context of immediate Paradise, combined with worldly fame. And those convinced of the glories of martyrdom – of going out with a bang – are the hardest of all to stop.
I have two objections to this passage. One, the idea that adherents to Islam are more prone to violence than adherents of Christianity or Buddhism is an assertion that requires evidence.
Second, even if investigations prove that Tamerlane and Dzhokhar deluded themselves into think that they were doing an “act of jihad,” which is a meritorious act in Islam, wishing does not make it so. The vast majority of Muslims, especially religious scholars, have condemned acts of terrorism as hiraba, a term that covers piracy and highway robbery, definitely unmeritorious acts.
So I hope that Mr. Sullivan would at least change the sentence “This was an act of Jihad” to “The brothers thought they were doing an act of Jihad.”
هذه المقالة تبرر النظام الأبوي و كراهية النساء
أولا الكاتب الأمريكي فوكياما ليس ححة و بالذات يبالغ في انفكاك الروابط العائلية في الدول الغربة و له معارضون كثيرون من علماء الإجتماع
ثانيا الرجال لا يسرفون على أسرهم في بلاد كثيرة و من ضمنها بلاد معظم سكانها مسلمون مثل مصر حيث تعمل النساء المتوزجات بنسب عالية لتوفير القوت لأسرهن و ليس ذلك نتيجة الدعوة إلى تماثل الذكر و الأنثى بل هو تتيجة الظروف الإقتصادية و حمل المجتمع المرأة مسؤولية رعاية نفسها و أولادها
ثالثا مطالبة المرأة بأتجيل العمل الوظائفي في مرحلة الأمومة تجعلها في موقف ضعيف في الشركات إذ تعتبر أي أولية خارج الشركة نقطة ضعف
و الأهم من ذلل أن كاتب المقالة لا يذكر وسائل تحديد النسل و لا حق المرأة في الحضانة و لا الإجهاض أي القضايا التي تسمح للمرأة أن تحدد لنفسها مرحلة أمومتها
Dr Abbas Husseini, of Qadissiyah University, makes a Friday visit. He excavated the great Babylonian temple at Marad, so his advice is especially useful.
