Why Most Terrorists Are Muslims?
Why The World Hates Islam And The Muslims?
Why Are Muslims At The Center Stage Of Terrorism?
Are Muslims Barbaric and Violent as the Media portrays?
And Again….Where To Draw The Line?
Please be sincere and honest to yourself first… you will never uncover the oppression and lies of the media against Islam and the Muslims unless you keep aside the preconceived notions about Islam that you have been spoon fed for several decades through the Media..
I know very well that most of you hate Muslims and Islam from the depths of your hearts.We dont blame you for that!
We, as Muslims are partially to take the blame for our horrible behavior and unworthy character that many of us have portrayed to you…The other half of the blame goes to the Media (ABC,BBC,CNN,Al Jazeera ,etc) on how they portray us to fulfill their well sponsored Agenda.
If you are sincere in clearing the dust off your eyes about Islam and Muslims, please do not judge Islam by the actions of the Muslims.
Muslims, by definition, are a group of human beings who are mostly born to parents who are Muslims or have Muslim names. They don’t necessarily represent the teachings of Islam.
In every community, there are Black Sheeps. But the Media, takes the Black Sheeps among the Muslims, portrays them in big screens and says to you – ” Look! This is how All Muslims are!”
So if you want to clear off the dust and look at Islam as it sincerely is..please read the Quran ( Islamic scripture). If you can, please get a copy of the Quran with translation of whichever language you speak best, at any authentic Islamic book stores around your place or ask your Muslim friend for a copy. If you are unable to get one, then please visit any authentic Islamic websites which includes –

MONTEVIDEO: Latin America’s leaders are among the most vehement in condemning Israel’s Gaza offensive – labeling the Jewish state “terrorist,” recalling ambassadors, and offering near-unanimous, unwavering support to Palestinians.
Latin American leaders
“I can’t remember another similar situation where [all the countries in the region] have reacted practically as a bloc,” said political scientist Reginaldo Nasser, a professor at the Pontifical University in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
One of the most symbolic recent developments came from Bolivian President Evo Morales – one of the leaders of Latin America’s far left – who put Israel on its list of “Terrorist States” and eliminated a visa waiver program for Israeli citizens.
Nearly 1,500 Palestinians have been killed and 8,000 injured, two-thirds of them civilians, in Gaza in 24 days of fighting between Hamas and Israel. More than 245 of the dead Palestinians were children, UNICEF has said.
Brazil President Dilma Rousseff this week called the Israeli military operation a “massacre.”
Tensions between the two countries had already escalated a week earlier, when Brazil recalled its envoy from Tel Aviv, a move that prompted Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesman to call the Latin American powerhouse a “diplomatic dwarf.”
Rousseff’s condemnation did not go as far as some of her peers. Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro denounced “a war of extermination that has lasted nearly a century” against the Palestinian people. A lawmaker from his party used the term “genocide” – a term rejected by Rousseff.
Peru, Ecuador, Chile, and El Salvador have also recalled their ambassadors for consultations, while Costa Rica and Argentina, which have the largest Jewish populations in the region, called the Israeli ambassador for meetings at their foreign ministries.
The region has universally condemned the violence from Israeli military operations, urged a ceasefire and the resumption of negotiations between the two sides.
Uruguay President Jose Mujica asked Thursday for “an immediate withdrawal” of Israeli troops from Gaza and suggested it may also recall its envoy in Tel Aviv.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor expressed “deep disappointment” over the recalls, saying they constituted “encouragement for Hamas, a group recognized as a terror organization by many countries around the world.”
Other politically leftist Latin American countries had years earlier broken diplomatic relations with Israel, including Nicaragua in 2010, Venezuela and Bolivia in 2009, after a previous military campaign in Gaza, and Cuba, in 1973, after the Yom Kippur War.
The only somewhat dissonant voice has come from Colombia, where the center-right President Juan Manuel Santos has rejected calls to recall his diplomatic representative in Tel Aviv.
Political scientist Nasser, himself surprised by the nearly unanimous condemnation of Israel, suggested several reasons. “In the first place, a country today making a declaration against Israel is no longer considered outside international norms.”
There is also a link to anti-American sentiments, Nasser said, as a result of Israel’s especially close diplomatic relationship to the United States.
But official moves have also reflected public anger at the war, said political scientist Ithai Bras, of the Autonomous University of Mexico.
In recent weeks, several protests across the region, from Mexico to southern Chile, have seen thousands of Latin Americans take to the streets in support of Palestinians.
These pro-Palestinian protests have been larger in Europe and Latin America than in Arab countries, Nasser noted, suggesting the issue speaks to concerns over asymmetrical relations.
Bras said the protests are “an identification with pain, a sentiment of solidarity with what is happening in Latin America,” where feelings of oppression are widespread.
Arnoldo Kraus, a surgeon and columnist in Mexican newspaper El Universal, summed up many Latin Americans’ views on Israel-Palestine when he condemned Hamas but described Israel’s treatment of the Arabs as “racist” and the Jewish settlements on Palestinian land as “nauseating.”
He added: “The pictures of dead children horrify. … It’s impossible not to feel compassion for the suffering of the Palestinians and disdain towards the Israeli army.”
After a UN-run school which housed over 3,000 Palestinian civilians was struck by Israel, Bolivia’s Evo Morales, the UN’s Ban Ki-Moon, and the UN spokesperson have had enough.
A Palestinian boy cries while receiving treatment from injuries caused by an Israeli strike at a U.N. school in Jebaliya refugee camp, at the Kamal Adwan hospital in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Wednesday, July 30, 2014. A Palestinian health official says 13 people were killed after tank shells hit the U.N. school in Gaza where hundreds of Palestinians had taken refuge from Israeli attacks. Adnan Abu Hasna, a spokesman for a U.N. aid agency, says tank shells hit the school around 4:30 a.m.
This week, Bolivia declared Israel a “terrorist state” while renouncing a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over the ongoing Israeli military offense Operation Protective Edge in Gaza which has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and has left over 7,000 wounded, most of which have been women and children.
Bolivian President Evo Morales cancelled the 1972 agreement which allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia saying, “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state.”
Morales explained to Bolivian citizens that Operation Protective edge is a clear indication that “Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”
According to RT, the announcement came after a cabinet meeting of the government of Evo Morales which decided, “The Bolivian state and people have made a firm decision to terminate the agreement on visas to Israel, from August 17, 1972, signed under a regime of dictatorship in Bolivia and that allowed Israeli citizens to enter Bolivia freely without even entry visa.”
Earlier in July though, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity” for it’s siege on Gaza, occupation of Palestinian territories and targeting of civilians.
Other Latin American countries including Chile, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and El Salvador recalled their ambassadors in Israel this week for consultations due to the increased violence in the Gaza Strip against civilians.
Just this week, Israel struck a UN School in Gaza, leaving at least 20 dead, mostly children. This horrific incident has brought worldwide condemnation especially a twitter storm condemning the targeting of schools and children.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned the deadly attack by Israel against the UN school in the besieged Gaza Strip.
“It is outrageous. It is unjustifiable. And it demands accountability and justice,” said the UN chief in Costa Rica on Wednesday.
In a video that has gone viral, a spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which provides aid to Palestinians in Gaza, broke down in tears during a TV interview with Al Jazeera in the aftermath of Wednesday’s fatal attack on the UN-run school, used as shelter for families and children.
Chris Gunness, a spokesman for the UNRWA, was unable to hold in his tears and trauma on air. “The rights of Palestinians, even their children, are wholesale denied,” he official said before breaking down sobbing in front of the camera.
“There are times when tears speak more eloquently than words. Mine pale into insignificance compared with Gaza’s,” Gunness said, as cited by Reuters.
The UN’s tone criticizing Israel has intensified indicating a shift in rhetoric and possibly accountability for Israel over it’s major civilian deaths, where many have referred to as a “massacre” or “slow genocide”.
Bolivia’s President Morales, has become outspoken over human rights abuses across the world supporting indigenous populations, and criticizing imperialistic meddling in foreign nations.
” I’m amazed at the shameless hypocritical stance of Arab puppet rulers and the heroic stance of the great Latin American leaders against oppression..probably because the latter people have tasted oppression and exploitation for centuries at the hands of imperialists and today, the corporate thugs..
And the former knows only servitude to the imperialist thugs and yet, they are proud of it…”
About 60,000 African migrants have arrived in Israel since 2006, fleeing unrest in their home countries. But upon arrival in the ostensibly democratic country, the migrants have faced intense persecution and have been branded as “infiltrators” by right-wing politicians and activists.
