Why can a nun be covered from head to toe and she's respected for devoting herself to God, but when a Muslim does that, she's "oppressed" ?
Why can a jew grow a beard and he's just practicing his faith, and when a Muslim does that, he's an extremist?
When a western woman stays at home to look after the house and kids she's sacrificing herself and doing good for the household, but when a Muslim woman does so, she "needs to be liberated"?
Why is it that when a child dedicates himself to a subject, he has potential, and when a child dedicates himself to Islam, he is hopeless?
When a christian kills someone, religion is not mentioned,
but when a Muslim is charged with a crime, it's Islam that goes to trial?
But then again, why is it after all that, Islam is still the fastest
growing religion in the world?
A call from Dr. Youssef AlQaradawi to the Worldwide Muslims
On Sunday 8th of October 2000 AlJazeera News Network aired inviting Dr. Youssef AlQaradawi. The subject of the program was about what is going on today in Palestine and the "Jihad Fareeda". For those of you who don't know Dr. Youssef, he is a very well known and established Islamic Figure and scholar who is known to be very moderate and respectfully knowledgeable. He is an Egyptian, living in exile in Qatar. Dr. Youssef Issued a Fatwa on air that boycotting Israeli and American goods became a "Fareeda" on all Muslims all over "He said that each Dollar we pay for a can of Coca Cola for example becomes a bullet in the American/Israeli war machine that is directed at us." Dr. Youssef said that "it is "Haram" not to do this. We arespending our money everyday in Macdonald's, KFC, Burger King, etc. without thinking for a moment where will this money go." "In My opinion, every one of us is responsible for applying this in his home and life style. Look at the Americans who wanted to Veto a UN decision to condemn the Israeli actions in Palestine! If those were peacekeepers as they claim would they do that. Not to mention that this UN resolution was not going to name countries by name!!!! What a joke. At the People, don't you think ? Don't you feel pain and sorrow any more ? Don't you feel the bitterness the Arab nation is into? The cheapest blood is ours! we are the test arena for their weapons and bullets and technology. This war machinery is enforced by our money in the consumerism they pushed us in. I ask you in the name of Allah, Muslims and Christians, I ask you in the name of the thousands who died on the hands of those terrorists in1948, in 1967, in 1973, in Qana, in dir Yassin, in Bahr in ElKudos. I ask you in the name of the brave people who died for our dignity in a time when we have become more like statues. I ask you in the name of the child Mohamed who was shot in his father's lap by a bullet you and me paid for. What have we become ? We have eyes that we don't see with anymore. We have ears that we don't hear with anymore. We have hearts that doesn't feel pain any more. They have made mutants out of us by turning us into blind consumers that pay money for their war machinery to terrorize the Arab and Islamic world.Boycott them NOW !! People, this life is not the end of the road. There will come a day that we will be asked in front of mighty God, who will put us face to face with those of us who died while we pay our money for their killers.What will we say to them? Will we say "Sorry, but your blood was cheaper than the Ketchup we spill on our Macdonald's sandwich" !!!It's now or never !!you who are curing their diseased. Why are you there ? Because you make more money? Because life there is more dignifying? Think about it? Think about what you will answer when the Day of Judgment comes. The Arab and Islamic nations need us to put our hands together and to become stronger. Come back to us. Come mend our wounded. Come build our economies instead of doing it for the enemy. I mean not to offend anyone but it's the bitter truth for all of us. Whoever, wants to shut his eyes and ears will one day wake up when its too late and find out that all the money and comfort he collected in his life is no marathon dust in front of God! Allahom Inny Ballaghet. Allahom Fashahad. GOD, Be witness on Mohamed's Ummah in the day they sold their Lands, their Lives, their dignity, and their brothers and sisters and bought every thing that is cheap."
