The End - 2000 to 2009

Islam, Muslim, Blog, Muslims

This letter is much better than Ralph Nader’s.  More positive and opening.  I am impressed by President Mahmoud Ahmadiniejad.  It is very surprising that out of all the Muslim leaders, only the President of Iran has the intellect (or insanity, some will say) and braveness to write to the President.

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Mr. Barack Obama

President-elect of the United States of America

I congratulate you on having gained the majority of the votes of those who took part in the election. As you know, the chances that God gives to his subjects pass swiftly. They can be used for the perfection of humanity and to the benefit of nations or, God forbid, to the detriment of nations.

I hope you will choose to honor the real interests of people and justice and equity over the insatiable appetites of the selfish minority. Use this chance to serve to the extent you can. And leave a good name behind for yourself.

People expect an immediate and clear response to the pressure for fundamental change in the American government’s policies, both foreign and domestic. This is the desire of all the world’s nations and of the American nation as well, and it should be the objective and basis of all your future government’s programs and actions.

On the one hand, the American nation, which has spiritual inclinations, expects your government to focus its energy and will on serving the people; dealing with the current economic crisis; restoring the country’s standing, morale and hope; eradicating poverty and discrimination; and renewing respect for individuals, their safety and their rights. It also expects policies that will strengthen the foundations of the family — part of the teachings of the holy prophets, who are also revered in America.

On the other hand, the nations of the world expect an end to policies based on warmongering, invasion, bullying, trickery, the humiliation of other countries by the imposition of biased and unfair requirements, and a diplomatic approach that has bred hatred for America’s leaders and undermined respect for its people. They want to see actions based on justice, respect for the rights of human beings and nations, friendship and non-intervention in the affairs of others. They want the American government to keep its interventions within its own country’s borders.

In the sensitive Middle East region, in particular, the expectation is that the unjust actions of the past 60 years will give way to a policy encouraging full rights for all nations, especially the oppressed nations of Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The great civilization-building and justice-seeking nation of Iran would welcome major, fair and real changes, in policies and actions, especially in this region.

If steps are taken in the path of righteousness, toward the goal of carrying out the teachings of the holy prophets, it is hoped that almighty God will help and that the enormous damage done in the past will be somewhat diminished.

I ask the high God to grant all of humanity and all nations health and happiness, honor and prosperity, and to grant rulers and officials the ability to learn from the past and to use every chance to serve, to spread love and kindness, to eradicate oppression, to do justice and to follow the holy guidelines.

Mahmoud Ahmadiniejad

I am not attacking Obama, but I’m watching him closely. This guy might be an excellent Democratic Politician, but it is interesting to note his relationship with Israel.

Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois.  Source: New York Times

From Wikipedia:

His father, the Jerusalem-born Benjamin M. Emanuel, is a pediatrician and was a member of the Irgun, a militant Zionist group active during the British Mandate of Palestine.

Basically his father was a Jewish terrorist.

So he is done pleasing Israel.  Now what will be his next move?  Yes, I voted for him and I still stand by it, becuase I didn’t want Sarah Palin in office, and I want the Iraq war to end.  I also want the economy to improve.

I don’t expect Barack Obama do everything pleasing to me or anyone.


The Big Day Has Arrived! [Recovered]

I’m extremely worried and excited at the same time.

By the way, this is the first election I am voting Democratic. It is also my second election I’m voting.

What if McCain wins?

Updates

10:10 AM: I went to my polling place.  Upon seeing the line, I knew it would be a long wait.  One and a half hour later, I was only half way through the line still standing outside.  I had to leave for work.  Will try again later.

6:15 PM: I voted for Barack Obama!  Took me 5 minutes to do.  No line.


Barack Obama Willing to Negotiate with the Taliban

This is extremely good news, and makes me want to shout at all the Muslims in Texas, Virginia, Ohio, Florida and any other strong Republican states to get out there and vote for Barack Obama! The fact that he wants to leave Iraq and now negotiate with the Taliban is extremely beneficial and good news for the Muslim world.

You can listen to the TIME magazine audio clip of their personal interview with him here.

How can any Muslim support McCain now? He wants to continue the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and wants to invade Iran.

The only thing that is in the way now for a peaceful outcome in Iraq and Afghanistan are the stubborn elements in the Muslim world. The lunatics and ‘thugs’ who roam around calling for Jihad and killing of other Muslims who are “deviant”.

I personally believe that Democracy doesn’t work in the Muslim world, because every Muslim wants their own way and don’t want to compromise. As much as I dislike the Egyptian, Saudi or UAE government, you have to admit they have stability and the sqaush any type of “thug jihad” mentality amongst the Ummah.

There is no real Democratic Muslim government in the Muslim world. It’s all dictators or kingdoms. The countries without dictators or a royal family is volatile and in chaos right now (Iraq, Afghanistan and soon to be Pakistan).

Allah knows best. May Allah (swt) end the unjust wars and protect the innocent! Ameen.


No Choice, No Voice – MAS Short Film on Muslims and Voting

In my honest opinion it wasn’t that great. It didn’t really motivate me to vote. But in terms of the quality, I’m really impressed that we have Muslims who are really professional in their film making, mashaAllah.


So What if Obama was an Arab or Muslim!

Thank you Campbell Brown and CNN!


New York County Prints Osama instead of Obama on Voting Ballot

Source: CNN News

Some are calling it a Freudian slip. Everyone’s calling it a big mistake.

Hundreds of absentee ballots sent to voters in New York State’s Rensselaer County, near Albany, were printed with Barack Obama’s last name spelled as “Osama,” the Albany Times Union reports.

County elections officials tell the newspaper that it was a typo that made it by three rounds of proof-readers. They also said the error affected just a few hundred voters, and that they will re-send corrected ballots on request.

What a typo!


The Ignorance and Hatred of American Republicans are Beyond Scary

If you live in Strongsville, Ohio I feel sorry for you:

I’ve got those blood lines too and so do every human being in the world. The bloodline of Prophet Adam (peace be upon him).


PBS Poll Shows Palin is Fit for the VP

Apparently the right wing terrorists have organized a poll crusade on this here.

Spare 10 seconds and select “no” to the question PBS poses. “Do you think Sarah Palin is qualified to serve as Vice President of the United States?”.


ISNA Video Blog – Day 2 (Saturday)

Sorry for the darkness. I’m still new at this video blogging stuff. Below are some of the videos I recorded as I walked through the bazaar, hotel lobbies and throughout the convention center:
