Afghanistan has been
hit hard. Estimates are that 3670 innocent Afghanis have been killed
(guardian.co.uk) not including the injured who died later and also
not including the people who died of hunger running away to save
themselves from errant US bombs. This happened during the month of Ramadan and Muslim countries did nothing to stop this.
I can see that
they have been desensitized to the extent that they do not care
about their brethrens in other countries. Others who do care become
"fanatics" or "extremists". My questions to Islamic Party are:
- What do we do?
If a Muslim country is attacked aren't we all suppose to declare
against the aggressor?
- Do you think
it is o.k. for Egypt, Syria and Saudi Arabia not to openly
declare Jihad against Israeli aggression.
- Why do the
Jihad/National liberation in Palestine overshadow the legitimate
Jihad's in Kashmir and Chechnya?
- Please also enlighten
on what is happening in Algeria.
Most of the
questions raised here are answered within the various articles on
this website (see below). There are detailed discussions on the
issues of Algeria, Bosnia, Palestine, etc. Palestine holds a special
place for Muslims due to Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, the place of
ascension of the holy Prophet Muhammad - peace be with him -
mentioned in the Qur'an. Palestine is also significant because it is
the centre stage of the Zionist agenda as well as of fundamentalist
Christian apocalyptic views of Armageddon, both of which make it a
key location for the power struggle on a world stage.
The fact that most
Muslim countries are powerless in the face of aggression at the
moment or kept subjugated by corrupted governments does not mean
that nobody cares, but rash radicalisation of the Muslim people is a
problem because in the long run it prevents us from working on sound
alternatives with which to fill the power vacuum after the
inevitable collapse of the remaining single super power. The
ammunition of Muslims in the West, in particular, is not that of the
sword but of the word, to counter the official propaganda by
disseminating sound information by which to empower individuals,
Muslims and non-Muslims, to make valid judgments of current affairs
and develop solutions to present day problems. This task should
never be underestimated, because in the collapse of an injust
regime, its moral credibility disappears before its physical might,
