Terrorism: The unequal treatment of two religiously motivated crimes
By Junaid M. Afeef, June 8, 2009
For two recent crimes, a Muslim, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is charged with terrorism and murder. In a similar case, a Christian, Scott Roeder, is charged with murder but not terrorism. Yet, there are ample indications that both sought to influence government policy.
May God guide them all.

Update: this is from the 2008 Spring Edition of Zaytuna’s “Seasons” Journal (paid, not free). It was only recently released for free this week and is currently on Zaytuna’s homepage.
This is a talk on Biblical manuscript tampering by Bart Ehrman, Professor of Religious Studies of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1h40m):
“Know they not that Allah knoweth what they conceal and what they reveal? And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book, but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture. Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say:”This is from Allah,” to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.” (Surah al-Baqarah, 77-79)
I think this man is secretly reading the Qur’an.
God will not intervene to prevent humanity from wreaking disastrous damage to the environment, the Archbishop of Canterbury has warned.
In a lecture, Dr Rowan Williams urged a “radical change of heart” to prevent runaway climate change.
At York Minster he said humanity should turn away from the selfishness and greed that leads it to ignore its interdependence with the natural world.
It’s called the diseases of the heart my brother of another faith.
And God would not guarantee a “happy ending”, he warned.
Dr Williams has often spoken out about environmental issues.
The “happy ending” is yawm al qiyaamah. It’s happy for some and unhappy for others.
Speaking on Wednesday he said just as God gave humans free will to do “immeasurable damage” to themselves as individuals it seemed “clear” they had the same “terrible freedom” as a human race.
“I think that to suggest that God might intervene to protect us from the corporate folly of our practices is as unchristian and unbiblical as to suggest that he protects us from the results of our individual folly or sin,” he said.
Word. It’s called riba (usury, interest). This is result of it. On to the rest of the article:
I disagree with many of his views and beliefs but this is definitely something really nice to see from a Muslim leader:
“In the Name of God the Compassionate, the Merciful.
Upon the anniversary of the birth of Jesus, Son of Mary, the Word of God, the Messenger of mercy, I would like to congratulate the followers of Abrahamic faiths, especially the followers of Jesus Christ, and the people of Britain.

The current economic crisis has even effected churches:
During this holiday season of hard times, not even houses of God have been spared. Some lenders believe more churches than ever have fallen behind on loans or defaulted this year. Some churches, and at least one company that specialized in church lending, have filed for bankruptcy. Church giving is down as much as 15% in some places, pastors and lenders report.
The financial problems are crimping a church building boom that began in the 1990s, when megachurches multiplied, turning many houses of worship into suburban social centers complete with bookstores, gyms and coffee bars. Lenders say mortgage applications are down, while some commercial lenders no longer see churches as a safe investment.
I wonder if the masajid in America have a seen a decline in donations.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — From a distance, it looks like an apparition: a huge multi-colored hot-air balloon floating in the Baghdad sky, bearing a large poster of Jesus Christ. Below it, an Iraqi flag
Welcome to the first-ever public Christmas celebration in Baghdad, held Saturday and sponsored by the Iraqi Interior Ministry. Once thought to be infiltrated by death squads, the Ministry now is trying to root out sectarian violence — as well as improve its P.R. image.
Even before I can ask Interior Ministry spokesman Major-General Abdul Karim Khalaf a question, he greets me with a big smile. “All Iraqis are Christian today!” he says.
Saw this in Abu Yusuf’s blog here. He has a good point in saying:
I wonder if America will allow an event like this for Eid or Ramadan, or have someone say “today, all Amercans are Muslims”
