Massacre in the land of the prophets

Category: Faith & Spirituality, Life & Society Topics: Prophet Muhammad (S), Prophets Views: 1879
1879

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.

Over 140 buildings, most multifamily dwellings, were completely destroyed (green) in Jenin and more than 200 others (red) were seriously damaged . Hawashin district, where more than 100 buildings were razed, is at the center of the map. (Human Rights Watch)

WORDS OF OTHERS THAT ECHO THROUGH MY HEART

Words of Sarah Shields (Professor of Middle East History at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill).

Dear Dad,

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?

Imam Saadullah Khan is a Prof. Islamic Studies, Cal State University in Dominguez Hills, California.

after redaing this article it has made me realise of what little we muslims do to help our oppressed brothers nad sisters in the muslim countries. i have noticed how i feel hate and disgust towards America and Israel and weep when i see palestinians suffering. but after i have turned of the radio or switched over the channel or finished reading an article my life commences in exactly the same way as to before i saw. but the only difference is i have seen what is happening yet i don't do anything to help. what is the difference between myself and the israelis i keep asking myself.................... i wasnt to help but yet i don't take that step forward to do anything! i know many of my muslim brothers and sisters who say that sucide bombers are notreal muslims and they shouldn't commit suicde because it is haram. yet they don't recognise that it isn't suicide it is freedom fighting. who are we to say that 'suicide bombers' are in the wrong when we are at home watching it at home and they are giving their lives to defend themselves and allah's religion. after being taught and learning all of this still i do nothing!

This is a massage to those who say palestinians are terrorists, just take a min. and think in your head if your home and someone came in and distroyed it and wanted to harm your family what would you do? would'nt you do every thing in your power to protect your family even if it means to loos your own life?
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.

I have sat here watched the news and watched how the inocent muslim's in the middle east are being taken over by the non-believers. It is a disgrace. Can anyone tell me why the so called leaders of most Islamic countries are not doing anything about this?? Tell me why Saudi Arabia, the biggest and richest muslim country in the world, is sitting back and watching all this distruction going on to the people who follow the Prophet's (saws) ways, To the people who follow what Allah has told them to do!!
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.

MAZHAR ASLAM AND FAMILY FROM ENGLAND said:
Aslamolekum brothers and sisters,

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.!!!!!!!!!

ALLAH HAFIZ.

Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.

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.

ALI ASGAR FROM PHILIPPINES said:
i do not understand why muslim countries, through their leaders, cannot come to the rescue and alleviate the inhuman sufferings of the palestianian people - which is worst than what the jews had suffered in the hands of the Nazi Germans.
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!!!

with impotent and emasculated leaders in the muslim countries leaves the umma no choice but to advocate for the re establishment of the khilaafat.meanwhile every thinking human being must know that to bring the Zionist to its knees is to strangulate this monster economically. Rise therefore Muslims and prevail on your Governments to use their conscious .vote on the Allies of the Zionists.South Africa was an example. But pray to the Alkmighty with the utmost sincerity for the relief of this calamity, as Allah promises that after the Musibat comes the Ease.Insha Allah.

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?

ADEEL FROM USA said:
I want to ask all the Muslims who read this..are you not ashamed of what is happening to your brothers and sisters is the Middle East. Tell me that tears are not the only things that encircle ur eyes when u read about them. Why are we so helpless. Why have we lost our faith. We used to rule the world while we took the leadership of God..now look at us helpless, bound and gagged. We live in "KINGDOMS" and "ISLAMIC REPUBLICS" and we dont see that we are causing divisions amonsgts the believers. Are we so blind to see that we Muslims are the real troublemakers. We let our Faith in God go a long time ago. We read the Quran, and stay still. We know what is right and what is wrong but we dont follow. We learn but we dont preach. I am scared. I am afraid. What am i going to reply to Allah, when after being raised from the dead, i will be asked what i did with my life for Allah. I feel sick to the guts. I want to weep but i stop myself. Its been a long time since i read the news and didnt have a heavy heart and tear filled eyes. But what can i do alone. I can only have Faith in Allah. I can stand up for myself. I can stand up for my people. I wish every Muslim feels like me so we raise again in the world. Allah has chosen Islam as the religion that shall prevail. I believe that day is not so far. If we just realized our follies and corrected them. If we just woke up. We should not follow in the footsteps of the oppressors. We should follow what Allah has commanded us to do. To seek peace and praise God. To lead a life on earth that leads to Heavan in Eternity. Let us unite. Let us unite for once and for all. Let us wake up. Do we need another Messenger from Allah to come and wake us up when we already have the Quran? Lets not wait. Lets rise. Let us all work to promote peace and harmony in this world so that we find peace in Heavan.

Invading other people's land and expecting them to live under oppression, depriving them of their political rights and human dignity is totally unacceptable,Immoral and unjust. "The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is not just an issue of military occupation. Palestinians are not struggling for a State, but for freedom, liberation and equality.
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!

QASIM FROM NIGERIA said:
all praises belong to Allah who has blessed us with islam. the condition of muslims in the world today is pathetic simply b'cos of the fact that we have derailed from the religion which our predecessors followed and were successful both in this world and the hereafter. its quite a pity that the lowest of the lows(israel,the uk and u. s govt) are making mokery of the muslims.untill we turn back to the truth and wage war against our enemies ,our condition is noT going to change.I PRAY ON TO ALLAH TO UNITE OUR SOULS AND GIVE US A NEAR VICTORY OVER OUR ENEMIES. MY ADVICE TO YOU IS THAT AS MUCH AS YOUR ORGANISATION CAN TRY, PLESAE TRY TO PROPAGATE THE IMPORTANCE OF UNITY WHEREVER YOU GO TO MUSLIMS FAR AND WIDE.HELP ME TO SEND SALAM TO MY MUSLIM BROTHERS IN CHINA AND TELL THEM THAT I LOVE THEM

R.L. FROM USA said:
It really break my heart to see how the brainwashing of the american and jewish media portrays muslims, as nothing but terrorists, it hurts me to see that the muslim ummah is in such a disgrace that we can not even help our own people, muslims countries, have leaders that are puppets for the americans and live in fear of them, when they should only live in fear of Allah, you can not totally blame the kufar, he is doing what he can get away with, the shame really lies on us.. for letting them get away with it. once they come to realize, that this life is so temporary, that they should do what is right and not live in fear of the kufar, then all this will come to an end, but as long as they love this lifetime more than the hearafter, then they will keep commiting crimes against us. I only pray for the guidance of Allah, to protect us for what our leaders are doing to us, and that they wake up before its to late.

VIOLA GARY FROM USA said:
You ask what is the use of weeping? Weeping not wailing, cleanses the soul of arrogance, hate, it softens it and lets concern and love in for others who are less fortunate than yourself. Perhaps in your weeping there might cross your lips a prayer for those who are being abused, humiliated, etc. These are the last days and in it will be much strife and death and destruction. I have paraphased some of what the last Prophet of Allah has stated in his prophecy of things to come. I would like to have the book on this subject that details the events of the last day. Read the Hadiths about these times it is enough to make you fall prostrate and beg Allah (awj) for protection and safety as only He can give. Subhannah Allah . May He(AWJ) protect the Mujahideen and all the Believers and Abdullahs and Amatullahs worldwide, Ameen.

WASEEM CHOUDHARY FROM ENGLAND said:
Firstly I would love to say assalam alaikum to all of those people who have been mentioned in this article and especially the person who has sent me this very touching e-mail. I am a muslim and when seeing the barbaric acts that are going on in Israel and the many injustices makes my blood boil and if I was in different circumstances I would surely fight against those animals in israel. I have never had as much hatred for the Jews as I have for them now (the israeli army) and if I was given the chance and had the power then I would do exactly the same things which they are doing to my palestinian brothers and sisters at the moment such as raping all of their womenfolk and then laughing etc etc, the list is endless. All in order to teach them a lesson however, many normal Jews which I know are trhe best of people and also sympathize with me but the majority of them are filthy animals. Please get back to me as soon as possible and if possible can I get to talk to a few of my palestinian brothers and sisters over the web, chhers and asalam alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakathu.

OUMAIMA FARHAT FROM LEBANON said:
Dear Islamicity,

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.

NASEER AHMED FROM SINGAPORE said:
Assalamu Alaikum Warahamatullahi Wabarakathu!! I must apologize for the strong words and feelings at the outset. All the Arab rulers are eunuchs, they are concerned more about their palaces, their belongings, this duniya, their coffers going empty, their country loosing the US advantage. It seems like every Arab ruler is a stooge of the US. It is true that there is and will be no unity amongst Muslims because then they will be a proud people. It seems a hopeless battle of wits to outsmart the enemy. Is there any one solution for this issue of Muslims massacre all over the world, - Palestine, Kashmir, Gujarat, Bosnia, Chechnya, Kosovo, etc. The answer is no. We do not.. Does violence beget violence, the answer is no.. Can violence be met with violence, No! It only makes the other party more determined like what happened recently in Palestine and Gaza. What does the ordinary man like me do??? Supplicate Allah. Allah Says in Al Baqarah Ayat 286 "Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith." I think each one of us should invoke this ayat to protect Muslims and gain victory over the non-believers. Ameen! Wassalam

RASHID MAHMOOD FROM PAKISTAN said:
My dear Sir!
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.

Yours Sincere
Rashid

VERA FROM USA said:
The persecution of Muslims has already been foretold by the prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Any Muslim knows the hadith in which the prophet said the nations of the world will unite against Muslims and the Muslims will be persecuted and we will be in great numbers. The only way we can win against this persecution has also been foretold, that we change what is in our hearts. Allah has clearly outlined for the Muslims that our situation will not change unless we change what is in our hearts. Our sick hearts, have to be dealt with first, our priorities have to change, our goals have to change. Allah should be our priority, our goal, and only then can we deal justly with those who deal unjustly towards us. Unfortunately, most Muslims do not realize their worst enemies are from within. Those who resort to terrorism against those who persecute Muslims are damaging More the Muslims than they are helping. Islam is emphatically against injustice especially when is done by believers who attribute their evil actions to Islam. What they have done is kill innocent people who by the way are Allah's creatures, maligned Islam in the eyes of the world, and give our oppressors more justification in persecuting us. It is the responsibility of every Muslim to stand by the rightous teachings of Islam and speak out against those who attribute evil actions to it. Terrorism is a result of having strayed from the right path, that is why Muslims are suffering and will continue to suffer. We have to eradicate this evil from the ummah, only then can we go back to the right path and overcome those who want to distroy Islam.

SCHISMATIC


War for fame
soldier of vain
sniper takes aim
shotgun inflicts pain
truculent game
non-partisan's slain
compass directs truth
grenade explodes shame
wounded, macabre proof
land-mine detonates,
fatwa for peace
so souls may consummate,
sheath your sword.
Worship our lord.

MAQUSOOD AHMED ANSARI FROM INDIA said:
Assalamo Alaikum
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

ARMOGHAN HEJAZI FROM INDIA said:
A stage has reached when Justice is weeping , Judiciary has been packed and kept in a corner and 'Right ' is being projected as 'wrong and the 'wrong 'as the 'right'.
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.

STEPHEN J BOOS FROM U.S.A. said:
I do not even begine to say I understand the plight of the palistinan people. I do understand that there is a great injustice in that area of the world. I also do know the injustice is not caused by any religouse diffrences.It is caused by Ignorance and mistrust between the two sides. I am from the united states and i was born here. I am a typical white male. I do not distingush between religon, color nor where someone comes from. This is what I have learned over my year. I do not side with the Israle's. I will tell you this also( most americans do not side with the israles)but it is a goverment. and i ask how much controll over your goverments actions do you have? Presonally I belive the israle goverment invites terrorism just like some leaders in the palistinan nation. Is their a answer to this?/ Yes i belive there is. In my country we have what is called religouse tolerance. I myself have had the chance to learn of many diffrent religons and cultures. Allah place us all here on earth. We do not own the land we just live here. We all as people need to edjucate one another not of hate but of understanding. The world must do this or conflicts like this will just go on and on in a never ending circle. It is our children and their children that could be the only ones to benifate and do we not owe it to them to first show we can all try to live in peace. I read so much that in the islamic world there are one's who preach ( the west is our enemy).I have also read many times that some cristian group would preach the opisite. Well you tell me when the fighting starts, Where are the ones who teach such things? It is not them that fight and die. It is the inncoent person that listens to there teachings.
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?

SALMAN FROM PAKISTAN said:
I do agree that we are disunited in our ranks and united in our grief....For we have learned nothing but to weep.....And not identified the hands which hold us back while our enemy beats us up...
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..

ONE MUSLIM WOMAN. FROM USA said:
There are so many muslims in the world today? Why isn't there a strong organized group of muslims to provide aid and relief to our oppressed brothers and sisters of Palestine, India, Turkey, Afganistan, etc.,? The stories are painful. But worst of all, muslim response is slight. We united once in Washington D.C. Do we truely expect this christianity based government to respond? Do we continue to allow non muslim relief workers to do our job? Our brothers our sisters and our children need our help! Boycotting Israel won't save muslims; Saving muslims will save muslims! It's time for obvious action on the part of the muslim community. There are many Imams that could become an organized body for the specific purpose of aiding those muslims who need us most. There are many muslim voices (media) that could help spread the word. And there is the muslim community that can support this type of action. Many muslims like myself are eager to help. I call upon those who have more voice and influence than I to help us help muslims.

THE PORTAL said:
If you understand the people so well, then you should understand The Lord even better, for it is The Lord who knows the meaning of these things and why He allows them to happen in the earth.

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.

ASIF FROM USA said:
O My Lord, the God Abraham, please give us one more chance to show our obedience. We have sinned. We did not heed Your Signs and the signs of the Hour. We have indeed betrayed our Lord once again, just like the Jews and the Christians. Please do not replace the Ummah of your beloved Prophet Muhammad , Blessed is his name, by those who would be more loyal than us. Ameen.

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.

THABIT FROM UK said:
What happened to the Palsetinian people in Jenin was another just like that of Lebanon. And what a shame to the Arab leaders! How can you just sit back and watch! Now its the Palestinians, tomorrow it will be YOU!

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.

AMIR FROM BOSNIA said:
Just like it happened in my country, the world is silent and standing around while our leaders are being kept quite. Today, I'm more angry than ever. They uncovered the documents which clearly shows Greece and Israel supporting Serbian troops and supplying them with weapons against innocent Bosnian women, children and elderly. We must unite and do something so that Palestine doesn't become another Bosnia or Chechnya.

SHADAN FROM USA said:
Shame it is! We should begin to act locally while thinking globally. We should establish an organization that represents the voice of muslim voters in each electorate district of America, collect donations for political campaigning in favor of the candidate who stands for justice and fairness. Let not America's face turn into the face of Zionism!

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.

Beautiful and meaningful words!
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.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. To sincerly repent; to humbly uphold the palms of our hands; and to learn charity that the left hand doesn't realize the right hand has given. And to arrive at the purification of being free of the fear of death...than shall the certain Help of the Most High...and the victory of deen be actualized. We are one Ummah, and our cure is with our sickness. To Allah do we cry. To Him we ask blessings upon our Rasool,his family and companions,and all of our brothers and sisters in faith.

FATIMA FROM AUSTRALIA said:

Salaam Islamicity,

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

The true meaning of religion should be:-
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.
