Massacre in the land of the prophets
Believers are being massacred in the Land of Prophets by the "progeny" of those who challenged the Prophets. How pained are people of conscience by this orchestrated tragedy, by the orphaning of thousands of children, by the killing of innocent civilians, by the humiliation suffered by chaste mothers and daughters, by the destruction of towns and villagers and the bulldozing of homes.
WHAT A SHAME
How angered are people of conscience by the arrogance of the Zionist occupiers, how disgusted by the unashamed bias of much of the Western world towards Israel, how disappointed at the impotence of the Arab rulers, how dejected at the inability of the Ummah to rise beyond petty differences and work for the common welfare of the Global Community of Faith. While so many of the self-righteous amongst us are concerned about the aqidah (beliefs) of one another, the Zionist are equally brutalizing the Sunni, the Sufi, the Shia, the Salafi, the Hanafi, the Shafi... in the occupied territories. They make no distinction, only we do; in the process, nobody gains but our common enemies. We are weakened by our divisions; they are strengthened by our disunity.
DISTRACTIVE TERMS, DESTRUCTIVE RESULTS
The most common term used by mainstream Western media in reference to the Middle East is "terrorism." Vilifying the Palestinians as terrorists distracts from the fact that the Israelis are occupiers, and are a blatant manifestation of flagrant state terrorism. "Peaceful occupation" of Palestinian land by foreign Zionist settlers is a contradiction in terms. Such occupation cannot be tolerable and should not be tolerated. Expecting people to live restricted and under oppression in their own land, deprived of their political rights, denied their human dignity is both unacceptable and immoral.
WORDS OF OTHERS THAT ECHO THROUGH MY HEART
Words of Sarah Shields (Professor of Middle East History at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill).
It was an enormously heavy responsibility you raised me with. You taught me that the Jews have been oppressed for centuries. You taught me that the holocaust could only happen because the Germans were silent. You taught me that Jews must never, never, never be silent when injustice occurs, because our silence makes us complicit.
It is a heavy responsibility I carry now. Because now I am complicit. I have not stood in front of the tanks that our killing other mothers' children in refugee camps. I have not ridden in ambulances to help them get past checkpoints so that the injured could be cured. I have not laid in front of the bulldozers to prevent their destroying a family's shelter.
What can I do about this injustice?
Beatings. Tauntings. Killings. Arrests without charge. Torture. Threatening parents in front of children. Stepping on prisoners trying to move between checkpoints. Strip searches. The use of power to humiliate.
When people are humiliated, and have no homes to return to because the homes have been destroyed by the occupying army, When people are humiliated, and have no family to hold them in their arms because they have been shot and unable to get medical care, When people are humiliated, and have no hope for the future, They see no alternative to violence.
Dad, we have become the oppressors.
WORDS OF A SOLDIER OF CONSCIENCE
Words of Sergio Yahni (Soldier, Imprisoned on March 19, 2002 for refusing to fight in Israeli army)
I will not serve in your army. You army that calls itself the "Israeli Defense Force," is nothing more than the armed wing of the settlement movement. This army does not exist to bring security to the citizens of Israel, it exists to guarantee the continuation of the theft of Palestinian land. As a Jew, I am repelled by the crimes this militia commits against the Palestinian people.
It is both my Jewish and human duty to resolutely refuse to take any part in this army. As the son of a people victim to pogroms and destruction, I cannot be a part of your insane policies. As a human being, it is my duty to refuse to participate in any institution, which commits crimes against humanity.
TEARS, IS THAT ALL?
O Palestinians, we weep at your tragic predicament. We have become so accustomed to weeping recently; weeping for Kashmir, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kosovo... But of what use is the weeping?

i think that's what every human in their right state of mind would do.
the only reason palestinians bomb them selves is because they have no other weapon to protect their homes, that's the only way they have, that's only thing they can do.
if they had a better way, they would use it. they don't wanna die either, but they rather kill them selves then let their famies get harmed.
O who you belive in ALLAH sw lets tight together
in our dua in our prayer at all times.ALLAH will
punish all the unbeliver soon. Neshallah.
Allahtala is great.
It is shame to this world. What the prophets are tought to us, we have fergotten everything.
It is true that there will be constant oppose to Islam till the end of time.But to keep Islam secure,we should come close to each other not only for the protection of Islamic culture but the people who beleive in it. Allah knows everything. He will protect the people who are in misery and pain. We should not loose our kindness and humanity at any condition.
Allahtala is great.
Excellent work and to subscrib to your news bulletine. Pl Enlist me,
I am a converted muslim, I was brought up in Australia and was taught that islam was wrong. But praise be to Allah I now know what is right and what is wrong, and I feel what the leaders of most Islamic countries are doing is wrong! MUSLIM UNITIY!!! That is how we will win.
look? Anger is what the entire world should feel
Thanks for having the guts/insite to publish this
wake up call for Muslims.
semoga ALLAH selalu bersama kita melindungi dan memberikan nikmat agar kita dapat hidup dan berjuang di jalan ALLAH menegakkan panji-panji Islam
I am lost for words after reading and reviewing the current palestinian situation. Your article is so true if we sorted our petty differences out then we could possibly have a better understanding of our faith and a stronger ummah.
I deliberately show pictures of muslim children who have been killed at the hands of the kafir to my children ( all under the age of 10). Simply because they are British born, and i want them to be aware that this western life is a mere falacy for them, as these kafirs will never accept muslims.
I actually feel helpless, as this terrorist thing has blown out of all proportions. I think the agenda of the west (the masonic society) is definately out there to get rid of allahs people and words, and are winning. the devil on the other hand has gained control all around the world.
The only thing that can stop the freemasons is if our very ummah is brought back and unified, there is no other way. NO TIME TO TALK ANYMORE, thats how serious the current situation has gone.
OUR SO CALLED MUSLIM LEADERS AND SCHOLARS IN THE HIGH UP PLACES DO NOT REPRESENT US. WE CANNOT NEGOTIATE WITH REGIMES THAT MASSACRE MUSLIMS BY THE HUNDREDS ONE DAY, THEN ASK US TO SIT AROUND PEACE TABLES THE NEXT DAY.
WHERE IS THE COMPENSATION FOR THESE FAMILIES. ISRAEL RECIEVES AN X AMOUNT OF MONEY STILL TO THIS DAY FOR THE SO CALLED HOLLOCAUST, AND REMEMBER THERE WAS NO JEWISH STATE THEN.
WHERE IS THE COMPENSATION FOR THE PALESTINIANS?
PERHAPS THE ARAB OIL RICH FAMILIES COULD SACRIFICE A FEW OF THEIR PALACES, BOATS, CARS, HOLIDAYS ETC, TO HELP IN THE AID OF THE DYING MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD. AND GIVE THE ISLAMIC REFLIEF AGENCIES A BIT OF A BREATHER.!!!!!!!!!
All praise is Only to Almighty, and we thank Him under all circumstances.
It causes me pain and stress, to see where the muslims are today, .. we feel oppressed, are opressed, but are shown as the opressors, ...we are being Demonized.I still beleive in sanity, and that there are mostly good people, in the west taken hostage by a few, .. showing them the Demons, i.e. the Muslims.The question arises,what is for us to do, .. how to react to this, right letters, e-mails here and there.. or give speaches amongst ourselves, and feel wh have done our share.I see the fulfilling of the Prophet's (Peace be upon him) prediction, "that a time wil come when the non beleivers will invite ach other upon muslims, as we do each other upon food", .. when asked weather we will be so less in number, the answer was no, .. huge, but with Love for life (and all in it) and fear of Death.
[[Well, don't get me wrong here, I DO NOT Beleive in blowing my self up amongst those who hate me, or want to kill my kind, .... etc etc. as it would again be contrary to the teachings of our relegion]].So what to do, ... I have been in the west, for long time studied there, ... and feel that most of responsibilities to represent the TRUE PICTURE lies on the communities there.
WHY the Media is Bias, CNN, why they are not being chalenged on "controled representation" exagurated ones, and skipped one's.
Bosnian Muslim, ... why muslims, only named with their relegion, these are Bosnian people, who were fighting infiltrators, named Bosnian croats and serbs, .. not christian Serbs and so.
East Timor, .. well they are Indepent Fighters, no matter what they do, they atill are ( and they were) BUT! in Chechenya, well the are called Muslim Fundamentlists, Terrorists, extreemists, Millitants, .. etc, the word MUSLIM always added.
The U.S. House majority leade calls for complete relocation of Palestinians.Please, its time for us, those in US to Fight it Right,take it to
are we afraid of america and lose our grip of power in our respective muslim countries? we are not afraid of Allah, the True Saviour, but we are afraid of America? America is our god and lord because we cannot defy or go against his will because we are afraid to lose power not even if some of our people are thrown out of their homes and houses and treated worst than animals, will make us come to our senses. America is the most civilized nation in the world - how can we dare go against it? But recent events, after september 11, on the contrary, showed the true color of American civilized society. before, i idolized everything american, but what they did to the Muslims in Afghanistan, to Iraq, and their continued support to Israeli terrorism of the worst kind, everytime i see President Bush in the news, i see him as the most uncivilized leader of the world who cannot display true statesmanship, diplomacy, and a true character of a civilized leader of the great nation. he is a leader who can lead the world into another world war III. It is only fortunate that the Muslim world is not united and that Russia and China are afraid of the United States that world war III is not feasible.
may Allah bless all muslim leaders and make them realize that america is not god and lord of mankind. Allah, the Ultimate Saviour, is real and not a mere shadow. He is no doubt the Lord and God of all creatures. Allah, have Mercy on the Palestinian people. Oh! Allah alleviate their inhuman sufferings and protect them from Israeli terrorism of the worst kind. Ameen!!!
I sit there and read and watch the crime committed against innocent people in Palestine and other parts of the world. I wonder, because of my weakness that I am away, one day in front of Allah(SWT) what would be my answer to helping the oppressed ones other than praying for them and participating in the fund raising events. I sit here and I am helpless when I observe that my brothers who live close to and arround Palestine who are helpless as well because of their hard hearted and corrupt leaders. What one can do to stop the oppression?
The israelis have perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality . Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children." All of this has got to stop and NOW!
I beleive that the main reason behind what is happening to Nuslems in the world and not only in Palestine is the decline in real faith among Muslems. Our aim is life and not what is after life. Our love of life made us leave the Jihad that touches every aspect of our life and not only fighting the enemy. The aim of a lot of Muslems nowadays is to seek a luxurious life. They bacame highly materialistic. It is only when we go back to Islam the real one we will win. As I pray for god to make the Palestenians take their right I feel at the very moment that god is not really responding to my praying. This is because the Palestenians can never win if most of them are not really and deeply muslems. Once they know god very well and once they know the real aim behind our creation only then they can think of winning.
Untill then, I wish all Muslems get educated about Islam for them to be able to work accordingly. Only then, the enemy will fear them even if they do not have the same power as the enemy has.
Request you to cover the Gujarat carnage where thousands of muslim were massacared with the help of state government.
continue to turn a blind eye to the many injustices against Muslim
in the USA and abroad. Innocent Palestinians are being murdered and
tortured everyday,their homes are being
destroyed, and their land contained by occupation and he does nothing.Israeli death squads are slaughtering innocent Palestinian
children,and UN was bribed to stop investigation.
What a biased world are we living in today,which is full of injustice.
have you got your messages in german or in turkish for my frends??they cant speak and understand english i will be happy when you send me in german or in turkish your messages.the english messages are ok. for me.
thanks you very much for your messages imam saadullah khan.
with best wishes
jazakam Allah khair fr the message which realy par frm tons what is going in the lands of prophets, I would suggest to collects such articles and email and fax this to all news papers in USA and senates and fr all concerned about humanitarian mession that inshallah will contribute in changing the openion her, about those killers and who are controlling the media every where.
I went through the subject-matter. Though one may not differ your views, but the problem is that what should be done by:
a single muslim any where in the world,
a single muslim in the muslim countries
the groups and the organizations
the govt. of the muslim countries
because in my view and as it is apparent also, the problems we muslims are facing are multi dimensional. The steps to be taken should be of urgent and emergency nature as well as of long term effects. This is the investment which will pay to us in here-after and to our next generations in this world too. The key point, in my opinion to be keep before the muslim policy maker should be that the muslim where ever they are should be taken as muslim irrespective of race and colour etc. As we all know the fact that there are two communities in the world i,e. muslims and non-muslims. The only and the only point of "UNITY" is the personality of the Holy Prophet may peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, because at that particular point no muslim can take him-self away.
I once again appreciate your efforts to educate, develop and energize the concept of muslim ummah. The prayers of millions of millions muslims like me are with you.
May Allah give you the courage and resources to work in the right way, the way of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him)
If I,m of any help to you, please feel free to contact.
War for fame
soldier of vain
sniper takes aim
shotgun inflicts pain
compass directs truth
grenade explodes shame
wounded, macabre proof
fatwa for peace
so souls may consummate,
sheath your sword.
Worship our lord.

Peace(I pray for in my heart)
In the name of The Allah the most benificent and merciful. I am sorry to listen about all such happening through out the length and breadth of the world. The self styled most civilised nations are playing dangerous game to finish the Ummah and to & to make an end to Islam. But I am sure with the help of The Allah to whome we are praying in its true sense. There is some lacuna in our prayer itself, Otherwise how can it be possible that we are true believer and are being killed by non believers. It is a challaenge to the Islam in the 20th Century. All heads of the muslim states must set aside thier differences and fight for the cause of Ummah. Otherwise ?. Dont localose your problem in the perspective of the interest of your country but do in the interest of Ummah. The non believer have clearly made and understand that if Ummah will not be destroyed, thier false game will ot run
The petro dollar can be used as weapons and the forward islamic states can help a lot in developing our non conventional weapons.
I hope the Allah would definitely hely us
Any sensible man who can distinguish between Balck and white, Night and day , can also distinguish between who is the oppressor and who the oppressed in the middle east conflict. I want to ask those who are defying all human values, has Prophet Moses encouraged these barbaric acts, the followers of whome they claim. He is one of the most distinguishable Prophets of all times and he was tortured by Pharon and his followers for propagating the faith sent by Allah.Do they remember that they will have to be accountable on the day of Judgement for all they have done.Not only they, every individual who has died as a matured man.
Then why this hate. Why killing . why why why
Self Ego ! That is the answer.
Tell me can the world survive this way forever? I do not belive so. Religons are based on peace, Islan, cristian, or whatever. We make the wars and fighting, not religon. We teach hatered not religon.When will the world wake up and see this?
Those hands are illiteracy, poverty,economic, technological backwardness, political immaturity....
These are the hands which hold us back....
Every people always faces opposition of some sort from its enemies....but history tells us that those who do not learn and overcome their weekness...Perish....
I hope we learn ...
Before its too late..
Does the Words of The Lord as spoken through the Prophet Ezekiel Chapter 6, verse 10 have no meaning? Yet the Lord even this day speaks through the mouth of Prophets, yet the people have turned their hearts to stone, and the words fall to the ground to be trampled in the dust and mingled with blood. Should these things even happen? Where is the wisdom your gods, the men you call upon daily to stand in the gate to uphold justice? Were I to send a Prophet in your midst, you would not recognize them. The earth is filled with bloodshed; and how to wage war is learned from the children you yourself have raised. You have grafted yourself to a vine whose roots reach to sheol; and these words too will be ignored. When will it end? The torment for many has just begun. Sheol waits for those whose feet have strayed from the path of righteousness, for those who proclaim a false God and false doctrine.
The Lord proclaimed and laid out the lines defining the boundaries of all things, and did not hide them to those whose hearts are humble. If any man is in turmoil, it is because he has chosen to step outside those boundaries in his beliefs, to serve a false god who cannot save him.
How difficult it is for the heathen to understand even the simpliest of truths.
My eyes are the only part of my body which shows loyalty by shedding tears. Only if I had known of a way, I would follow it to end this Holocaust.
May God bless us All.
time for waking up ourad their lazy eyes and look around
what goes aroundcomes around
we are all militantss against the human humiliation, only god can be feard of and o one else
time to break all the barriers and the quods is ours and not anyone else's, it is where prophet ISSA MASSIEH was born (bethlehem)and tis not a land for the ASTRAYS jews to be there
we never accept that our brothers and sisters and mothers to get killed and their homes to get shatters like a cakes over sharon's table, time to say stop to all these behaviours.... STOP
You have the power, but no brains to use the power, Isreal and its allies know that, so they just do as they please with innocent lives in their own homeland. And you can do nothing coz you havent the brains. Just think! What if this was happening to the Zionists, the Western World with the help of some MUNAFIQS would rain bombs to the attacers, but since its the Zionists doing it, nothing will happen. Not even give a chance for investigations. What are you diong for the Palsetinian People? The USA has blocked invetigations in Jenin because they are helping the Zionists kill and kill and kill and go free, these are the very same people who will come to convince you for help to attack and kill you brothers and sisters in IRAQ. The same people will mediate peace between the Palestinian people and the Zionists. I call on the Arab leaders to use the Quran to judge the Zionists OCCUPATION, OPPRESION and continued MASSACERS in the LAND OF THE PROPHETS.
by our enemies before we wake up as a united ummah. remember they have been trying to destroy our religon and culture since the fall of the khalifah. they sai never again will they allow us to get together and they have succeeded.how week and pathetic are our leaders to help destroy everything that our forefathers built.80 years they have done nothing for our people only helping the the west and Israel.Shame on them!!
American politicians have been bought over by the monetary influence and vote threats of the American Jewish community. If we don't reverse this trend, it is a matter of time before injustice and unfair execution will hit every Muslim home in this land of freedom and democracy. State sponsored terrorism in the name of fighting terrorism. Look at Gujarat (India)!
Let us start this effort now- it's going to be a long way to get there. But if we don't start now, we will never get there, and deeply regret when it's too late. The peace and freedom loving muslims in the USA may find themselves in a situation no different than what is being faced today by the Palestinians and Gujaratis. Our nice cars and houses will come to no avail. So, may I suggest that all muslims be urged to donate generously to this cause and their voices be heard in Washington, DC as well as the world media. United we stand!
God has put us into the current times of crisis (may be as a blessing in disguise) so that the Muslims may unite and mobilise their unity for a good cause. This is probably the only bright side of this darkness.
Good job everyone at IslamiCity!
While nobody wishes this to happen to the Palestian people, this is only a reminder to all of us not to fall into the illusion that negotiation with the Zionists government will bring any results. The more we give, the more arrogant they become! As many pious Jews have correctly expected, the Zionist leadership has been the biggest catalyst in the destruction of the State of Israel.
Thank you for this information. The opinions of the Jewish people who protest the actions of the Israeli gov't not only confirm that the actions are inhumane, but that it isn't a conflict of religion that causes these actions and injustices rather the evil within humans which allow these unjust actions to occur. Religion is the agenda that is used to explain the horrible occurrances, but in truth had the Israelis been practising Judaism in the correct manner than there would be no conflict and there would be acceptance of Islam. This applies to all conflicts in the name of religion. Thank you once again.
Fee aman Illah
There is only one true GOD and to mankind "Peace and goodwill."
And all the prophets came with a message of mercy for mankind from the Almighty.
It is really unfortunate and ironic that the massacre happen in the land of the prophets.
