America finally wakes up…

The state of America

That picture really sums it up. Just look at the recent headlines:

A President Besieged and Isolated, Yet at Ease – George W. Bush has invited a range of scholars to the White House to discuss how his presidency has gotten off course. (July 2, 2007, Washington Post)

Poll: Americans say US is off-track – Majority Says Founding Fathers Would Be Disappointed In U.S. Today (July 1, 2007, CBS)

What about the World?

Europeans see US as the biggest threat to peace – Europeans consistently regard the US as the biggest threat to world stability

China is the main financer of the trillion-dollar Iraq war to help America screw itself – And they will not finance the rebuilding.

America is…

losing it’s power.

Many of us who live in America don’t even realize it. We think our society is fine and economy is good. We get up in the morning and have our breakfast, go to school/work, come home eat some nice home-cooked food and watch tv/surf the web/etc. What we fail to realize is that the cost of living is increasing. You can’t own a house in a nice neighborhood without dealing with a mortgage for years. Almost everything is taxed (in New York at least). Public school is so haram, it’s literally disgusting. Prices increase without the proper proportionate salary increase thus making it hard for poor and low-income families to live comfortably. A masters degree is the new bachelors.

Basically, America is good, but its not good again. It’s a balloon that won’t stop expanding because it keeps inhaling too much air. It’s going to pop soon.

China and Japan have completely owned the global market from mass production to technology. I’m sure many of you have seen amazing cell phones, cameras, computers and cars that are available in Asia and the Middle East yet it’s not in the US. Tokyo and Dubai are probably the most modern technological advanced cities in the world.

The Iraq War is like Muhammad Ali and America is Sonny Liston. The war is in motion with the full swing to the right just about to hit the jaw of America. America doesn’t see it coming, it’s too busy thinking about how they can defeat it and win.

So what can we do as Muslims? It’s simply. Be better Muslims, cuz we’re travellers, just passing through this world.

      The truth hurts…especially to those Americans who see their country as ‘the best’.

      Yes this whole post is true
      America is simply no longer being a world superpower, many countries lost trust in us, our foreign policy is questionable, and this nation now made it more difficult to earn an honorable living.
      we just need a president that will acknowledge all of this and put this country back to good shape like FDR’s new deals.

      Wow, I didn’t know you could be so deep!

      No seriously though, its the cycle of things really, every power has its rise and decline, and you are right we should just concentrate on what we know will endure…the serving of Allah subhana hu wa ta’ala

      Isn’t being a Muslim so wonderful..it’s virtually impossible to get depressed!

      You’re right about house mortgages. My family (non-muslim) wants me to stop renting and just buy a house paying tons amount of interest. Its soo difficult to live here without being a slave to riba.

      Watching the constant decline of Islamic power since 1699 and it’s ever accelerating rapid decent spiraling downward faster and faster since 1979. It is clear that Allah has abandoned the cause of the extremist Islamic militants in favor of civilizations that promote equality, freedom and human rights which are blessed with endless prosperity. Muslims continue to be subjected to turmoil and poverty, this is punishment for the events of 661 when Muslims turned against themselves and began their traitorous decent into impudent destructive killing, abandoning the compassionate teachings of the Prophet Jesus in favor of killing their perceived enemies and their own brothers and sisters. Although you may believe Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, the statement is based on the birth rate in Muslim nations where it is a crime punishable by death to leave Islam. This practice is diluting the strength of your faith and will result in its inevitable downfall at the hands of our divine Creator. Abandon your violent ways and beg Allah’s forgiveness now by forgiving your Jewish and Christian brothers and sisters if you wish to be delivered from your tormented prison of hate and contempt.

      Any “true Muslim” would not call him self that. I see some comments about of decline Islamic Power. I thought this was a Vlog about the decline of America in the world. Stick to the topic.

      Powerful nations throughout history who aspired in empire building and greed eventually self-destructed like Rome, Germany, and eventually America?

      As-Salam Alaikum

      Another one of these guys. Please just go away. We’re not the ones killing hundreds of thousands of people for reasons even the Americans no longer know. We’re not the ones denying the Palestinians (Christians included) their right to live without fear. We’re not the ones turning a blind eye at the situation in Africa, because black people don’t matter (in there eyes).

      I’m tired of these kinds of people. Where do these guys come from? I don’t think I’ve ever met someone like this in person. Perhaps they’re too afraid to reveal their beefs in person.

      I told you before: go away. Sadly. Unlike in real life I can’t really make you.

      Salam Alaikum

      i agree, FDR was probably the best, if not one of the top three best presidents the U.S. ever seen. Unfortunately those days are over and the government has most of the control over the people were as in the days of FDR the people have more control over the government, meaning that instead of focusing on the needs of the majority there is now a great focus on the needs of the few.

      i would also like to add that we must take part in the process so long as we live in the U.S. these days are troubling times; the patriot act reads like Hitler spoke, yet it was still voted in with thunderous applause; we have got to stop bills and amendments like this from getting passed into the books, otherwise I fear very dangerous and painful times ahead for us Muslims that reside within the U.S.

      i might be reading too much into it though but that is my thoughts. let me know what yall think.
