They are plutocracy and corporatocracy. They are greed and power. They are treachery and betrayal. They are abuse of power.
There were actually more public signs that Khan (who bitterly denounced his former wife earlier this year (ie 2010) as a violent jihadist) was associated with radical Islam than Aafia.
Indisputable, Barack Obama betrayed the Black American population as every other president in US history, including Lincoln. And Barack Obama is without question a War Criminal.
The importance of disseminating truth can never be overestimated. In fact in our narcissistic, materialistic, technocratic, warmongering and neoliberal world, it’s more urgent than ever, if we don’t want to lose our humanity. That which made us in the image of God.
‘Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem’ – ‘In the name of God, the Merciful, the Beneficent.’
It’s simultaneously disheartening and heartening to read these crucial and compelling articles that mince no words exposing the fact that, disappointingly and sadly since the Prophet’s death, the Ummah have allowed themselves to be manipulated through relentless fear, and promises of coveted rewards, to betray their brothers and sisters, by totalitarian oppressors, who exploited human greed and inundated persistent human fear thousands of years ago as they do to this day, to deviate from the Hadith, which was as fundamental, as divine, to complement the Quran, God’s words and messages to us, over two thousand years ago as it is today.
Reading and reciting the Quran and praying five times a day, a faithful righteous Muslim does not make. It’s mere superficial posturing if it is not followed up and backed up in actions by the righteous beliefs, sayings and messages of the Prophet painstakingly memorialised for the Ummah, for humanity, in the Hadith.
Scholars that led revolutions | Ahmed Hammuda | ISLAM21C | 3 Aug 2020
It has become almost impossible to come across those who claim adherence to Ahl al-Hadīth today who are actually so. You find those who claim to do so particularly submissive to their rulers, issuing legal verdicts (fatāwa) in their favour and prohibiting going against them even by mere speech. Some have gone to the extent of becoming informants against those who express opposition to their rulers, until they become imprisoned and castigated. The question is, was Ahl al-Hadīth of old on this methodology of praise and flattery towards their rulers, even if the latter were oppressive and depraved? Is it classically accepted and truly the case that our rulers are justified “even if they fornicate for half an hour live on television everyday” as one of these submissive people recently claimed?
The never-ending wonders…

First-rate information always crucial and necessary. Especially in the ever-increasingly hostile environments of relentless territorial disputes. Whether concerning large or small territories or privately owned lands/property, the context and legal aspects, within domestic, as well as international, laws, are relative, recognizable and adaptable globally to any and all boundary/border disputes.
Boundary Disputes: A Quick-Fire Guide to Law and Practice| Jamal Demachkie | Hardwicke Chambers | 12th February 2020
Much like the equator, the tropics, or the UK’s “red-lines” in Brexit negotiations, a boundary is just another imaginary line. In this case a two-dimensional one separating two or more properties. It does not exist in any physical form, yet it has the ability to render perfectly rational neighbours senseless.
Stories are legion of neighbours falling out and incurring tens of thousands of pounds of legal costs arguing over this imaginary line. Sometimes the encroachments are substantial; more often than not, however, the trespass is entirely disproportionate to the value of the land. And even after the parties have their day in court, the matter often does not end there. Frequently, the decision taken by a judge leaves neither side happy; it may have ramifications over future ownership of boundary features…

On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., 4th April 2018, seven Catholic plowshares activists entered Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in St. Mary’s, Georgia. They went to make real the prophet Isaiah’s command to “beat swords into plowshares."
'We are nameless, faceless and are reduced to a "serial number" as if we were a hardware and no longer humans. I am Asadullah Haroon, an Afghan citizen from Nangarhar. My wife waits every year for the news that her husband comes home. My infant baby, Mariam, is now a teenager.'
British police officers like their alcoholic beverages and enjoy their cigarettes like many folks. Some more than others to be sure. It would hardly be shocking if police officers more than others spread COVID-19 due to their insistence to intimidate and harass the public.
The COVID-19 crisis glaringly confirms the years of relentless Tory austerity, privatization and increasing budget cuts have succumbed NHS capabilities to little more than a third-world country's healthcare system.
Samuel McDonald expresses my fears precisely in that it is fact our civil liberties and human rights took a big beating in the aftermath of 9/11. In the past 19 years our rights continue to be systematically eroded.
Every time there’s an alleged world crisis, leaderships exude executive or so-called emergency powers with the blessings of left-wing protagonists and even human rights defenders.
It definitely is terrifying to witness day after day in the media and on social media how easily some of us apparently lose their reasoning and courage, defending and demanding our rights, when faced with crisis and only too willingly capitulate our self-determination and our hard-fought rights to governments serving up patronizing lipservice to justify enforcing their draconian executive powers in the name of protecting lives, but of whom they know only too well any so-called crisis will be exploited to infringe and impede our rights as human beings and citizens, while filling their coffers with our money.
This brilliant article brings home the sobering facts of humanity’s destructive behaviour and actions impacting our natural world and all her inhabitants. Defining the fact that governments deliberately ignore the evidence that unless humans face and fix the root problems, ie stop our destruction of ecosystems and natural habitats and dumping our rubbish in our oceans and toxifying our air, humanity will destroy itself.
Surrendering our rights and allowing governments to take our hard-earned taxes to support private companies, oil conglomerates and banks while forcing us into “lockdown” of totalitarianism with so-called sweeping emergency powers will not stop our increasing worldwide health crises, which roots are patently clear and wholly caused by capitalist greed.
