Lamar Advertising pulls Anti-Israeli Aid Ads


ALBUQUERQUE, NM – An Albuquerque-based billboard company pulled ten billboards today that had featured a political message. The contract between a local grassroots group, the Coalition to Stop $30 Billion to Israel, and Lamar Outdoor Advertising was supposed to be for eight weeks; the billboards were taken down after only three weeks.

Brothers with Six-packs

I use to work out frequently in my high school years and my last three semesters in college.  I lost all my muslces now due to the work life.

I know there are some brothers who stay fit and do it on a weekly basis.  If you do, post up some basic beginner exercises that you recommend one can do at home in the morning or evening without any devices or weights.  Basically push ups, sit ups, etc.  Any variation of these and other uses of the typical “household item” like a chair or something. I don’t have the time or money to dedicate a monthly fee for a gym so I just need some basic schedules and exercise instructions.

JazakAllah khair.

Israeli Official: Swine Flu is offensive to Jews and Muslims, Rename it Mexican Flu

Wait what? Israeli official speaking for Muslims and Islam? Uhhhh…

JERUSALEM (AP) — The outbreak of swine flu should be renamed “Mexican” influenza in deference to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities over pork, said an Israeli health official Monday.

Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and “we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu,” he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.

Both Judaism and Islam consider pigs unclean and forbid the eating of pork products.

Scientists are unsure where the new swine flu virus originally emerged, though it was identifed first in the United States. They say there is nothing about the virus that makes it “Mexican” and worry such a label would be stigmatizing.

Two Israelis who recently visited Mexico have been hospitalized with symptoms of the flu. Health authorities have not yet confirmed whether they actually have the virus.

The current strain of swine flu is thought to have originated in Mexico where more than 100 people have been killed by the disease so far.

Laboratories in the U.S. and Canada have confirmed that of the samples tested so far, the swine flu virus in Mexico and U.S. appear to be the same.

Did anyone else find “swine flu” offensive? I didn’t.


Chemistry, Physics or Engineering Undergraduate Students

Message from iMuslim:

Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah

A sister is urgently looking for Chemistry, Physics OR Engineering undergraduate students to fill out the following VERY SHORT survey:

It shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes to complete (if that), and it would really help her out, as it involves a job application that she needs to submit by the following Monday.

Therefore, the submission deadline has been set for Saturday, 25th April 2009 – 1AM GMT (01:00).

Even if you are not a student yourself, please forward this message onto those who are studying, or have the relevant connections.

I know it is exam season for many – but see this as one less excuse to study. 😉

JazakumAllah khair for your time.
