The demolition campaign, if approved, would be one of the largest i...

    http://www.cbc.ca/story/world/national/2005/05/29/gaza-050529.html This is another example at the inbalance of journalism.

    This is a rare but great thing to see so many world leaders condemn the occupation of Palestine. It is unfortunate that with over 65 UN resolutions condemning Israeli actions since 1955 that it seems they still have not complied as is evident by the UN's dismay with their refusal to co-operate. http://www.cbc.ca/cp/world/050511/w051190.html...
  • Rebuttal to anti-Islamists over the state of Israel
    This is just in response to the anti-Islamists who have been copying and pasting from anti-Islamic hate sites to miscontrue Islam.The Qur'an does not allow for any violence except in the case of self-defense, in fact the Qur'an repeats over and over that if the enemy (in times of war) wants peace, you can't continue fighting.This issue has nothing to do with Islam, it has to do with occupation and the Zionist leaders in Israel wanting a "Jewish" majority, and Ra...
  • Media's Portrayal of "Islamists"
    According to dictionary.reference.com the word islamist means: An Islamic revivalist movement, often characterized by moral conservatism, literalism, and the attempt to implement Islamic values in all spheres of life.

What is interesting is that instead the media chooses to portray or only show those Islamists who use violence, or associate it with some kind of global movement...
  • The Prophet Muhammad Had Nothing To Gain By Challenging The Existing Leaders
    Many anti-Islamists charge the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him), with being an egocentric tyrant among other things, insisting that his only goal was to deceive people and that he invented Islam himself and that he did not receive divine revelation as Jesus had.The biggest flaw with that argument is the obvious point that they would never mention. Muhammad already had protection and influence because of a wealthy Uncle.He risked the life of his fri...

    My response to a viewpoint comment on the Jim Reed article - The revaluing of a society http://www.cbc.ca/news/viewpoint/vp_reed/20050727.html I have to say Mr. Reed's article was well researched and well thought out and is a nice balance compared to American biased media that attempts to paint today's conflicts as a black and white, west versus east or Islam versus the world picture which could not be further from the truth. I also agree with Mr. Zarnett an...

    Allah is GOD in "Aramaic", the language Jesus spoke With Ramadan around the corner (generally accepted as tomorrow if the new moon is sighted) I felt like doing some research and it turns out what my friend said is true (god is "Allah" in Armaic") and hopefully the Christians that knock on my door every few months will come back soon (although they promised to visit soon last time we spoke). It is a historical fact that Jesus spoke the "Aramaic" language so n...

    Facts About Islam

    The Same Religion As Abraham, Moses, and Jesus

    Muslims believe that Islam started long before the Prophet Muhammad's time and was the same religion taught by the previous religions and Prophets.

    Qur'an 42:13 The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - the which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).
