Mohamed Khodr’s Column

First the British, Now America Betrays Muslims

:: It’s the Oil, Stupid ::

“READ”.   The first word of the Holy Qur’an and Islam revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) followed by “WHO TAUGHT MAN BY THE PEN.”

“READ”.   The first word of the Holy Qur’an and Islam revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) followed by “WHO TAUGHT MAN BY THE PEN.”

 

 

READ and PEN.  No greater foundation for any faith in history was ever blessed with such truth:  Seeking Knowledge of past Truths and Revelations, while embarking on a journey of Scientific Research that will reveal to mankind God’s creative mastery within the human body, soul, and universal signs.   God demanded of Muslim believers a submission and worship of Him that arose from intellectual fervor and reasoning, not blind faith.  The Qur’an is replete with admonitions to the believers to approach and appreciate Qur’anic Messages via understanding and discernment:   “..MESSAGES FOR PEOPLE WHO THINK” and “…MESSAGES FOR PEOPLE WHO USE THEIR REASON”.

It was such a strong belief in faith, in the brotherhood of mankind, in actions based on intellect, research, reasoned deductions, equality, respect for other faiths, human rights, and property; in short a strong foundation in Islam and its beliefs that propelled hundreds of divided tribes and nomads in the Arabian desert to rapidly expand beyond their borders and establish the greatest civilization of learning, peace, and harmony among mankind the world has ever known.   The burning and passion for Islam in the hearts of its believers gave rise to “Muslim Civilization” in all that it encompasses for one thousand years..

It was the abandonment of this Islamic flame that led to the demise, civil wars, greed, arrogance of multiple rulers, and external invasions, that ultimately led to the total collapse, stagnation, and the demoralized “Ummah” of today.

The lesson for Muslims today is the same lesson Muslims learned from the Battles of Badr and Uhud.  In Badr, a small number of Muslims defeated a much larger army due to a burning love of Islam and its Prophet (pbuh) with God’s mercy and aid.  In Uhud, Muslims were defeated after they disobeyed God and His Prophet (SAW).  The lessons from these two battles are clear.  The defeated status of Muslims today is due to our abandonment of the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet in our lives, our corrupt governance, our greed, imitation of Non-Islamic cultures, and our Un-Islamic behaviors; thus our demise and suffering is due the sins we brought upon ourselves and not due to external factors.

The final demise of the Muslim Empire occurred after World War I with the defeat of the Ottomans by the French and British, with the aid of the Arabs.  With the break up of this empire the Near East (became Middle East after W.W.II) was plum for the picking by the colonialists, England and France.  While the British during the war were enlisting the help of the Arabs in fighting the Turks with promises of future “independence” and unity of Arab land, they were plotting in secret with the French to divide the Arab lands, in particular Greater Syria and Iraq, without any thought or recognition of Arab rights or sovereignty.  Such an agreement was reached on January 16, 1916.  It was called the SYKES-PICOT AGREEMENT named after the Englishman Mark Sykes and the Frenchman Georges Picot.

Simultaneously, while the British promised the Arabs the land of Palestine; they also promised the Zionist Jews “a” homeland in Palestine to enlist their support in bringing the United States and Russia into the war (the war was going badly for Britain).  A small island, England, decided to give a land it doesn’t own to a people foreign to the land, in total disregard to the natives of the land, the Palestinians.  Such a British gift would solve Europe’s “JEWISH PROBLEM” by expelling the unwanted Jews from Europe into an Arab land and to ensure a British “colonial” presence in the Near East to check French power.   The British promise to the Zionist Jews was inscribed in a personal letter of 65 words from Lord Balfour, England’s Foreign Secretary, to the wealthy Zionist British Jew, Lord Rothschild.  This promissory note became known as the BALFOUR DECLARATION, passed in November 1917.  Ironically, the chief opponent of the Balfour Declaration was the ONLY JEWISH member of the British Cabinet, Sir Edward Montague.  He feared that the expropriation of Arab land by Zionists with the help of Britain can only lead to conflict.  He was right.   In 1900, Palestine was overwhelming Palestinian Muslim and Christian with Zionists only owning 2 percent of the land.  In 1948, while still a minority, Zionists owned only 6 percent of the land.  Through U.N. Resolution 181( the Partition Plan of 1947), destruction of 450 Palestinian villages, ethnic cleansing of 800,000 Palestinian Refugees, followed by a series of Israel’s Pre-emptive wars (except the 1973 Yum Kippur war) Israel now controls 100 percent of Palestine and militarily occupies the lands and lives of 3 million Palestinians in total defiance of 90 U.N. Resolutions, the Fourth Geneva Convention, the U.N. Charter, and international law.

THIS IS NOT ANTI-SEMITISM (IT’S TIME THE JEWS GOT OVER THIS FALSE SHIELD AND TIME FOR THE WORLD TO FORGO THIS LABEL’S INTIMIDATION), THIS IS REALITY.   JEWISH AMERICAN MONEY, HIGH VOTING RATES, INTIMIDATION TACTICS OF THE SLIGHTEST CRITICISM OF ISRAEL, EVEN BY JEWS, AND THE EASY ACCESS TO THE MEDIA AS “EXPERTS” AND “SPIN DOCTORS” TO PROTECT ISRAELI ATROCITIES WHILE LAYING THE LYING BLAME ON PALESTINIANS MUST END.  AMERICA MUST DROP THIS CO-DEPENDENCE WITH ISRAEL FOR ITS OWN NATIONAL INTEREST, INTERNATIONAL CREDIBILITY, AND BUDGET SAVINGS..

The SYKES-PICOT AGREEMENT of 1916 (created Iraq, Syria, TransJordan, and Lebanon with borders drawn by Europeans) and the BALFOUR DECLARATION OF 1917 has to this day been the basis for civil wars, Israeli/Arab/Palestinian conflict, the creation of Arab military and monarchial states ruled by Un-Islamic autocratic regimes spending the public’s money on palaces, secret police, weapons, and a controlled media whose sole purpose is to extol the ruler’s virtues, rather than on the health, education, and welfare of their people.   The MidEast is still paying the price of these two Agreements that betrayed Arab trust and aspirations.

The invasion of the European white man of the Muslim world disconnected Muslims from their faith.  The Arabs and Muslims became perpetual victims blaming all their deficiencies on European colonialism, American Hegemony, Zionist conspiracies, corrupt rulers in the pockets of the CIA and Mossad (Israel’s CIA), a Judeo-Christian Holy War against Islam, and a constant design by America to steal their oil, resources, and educated elite.  Blaming the “outside forces” became the crying mantra of Muslim governments to hide their own incompetence, illiteracy, and unsophisticated understanding of the western world.   For too long Muslims have been indoctrinated by their former colonialists to view Islam as a religion of backwardness, lack of progress, and modernity.

 America, Europe, and Israel are simply implementing their self-serving policies, as they must, although they are hypocritical, colonial, murderous, and oppressive.    As Sharon said:  “We Control America“.  But, what are we as Muslims doing to protect our faith, our people, and our resources——NOTHING——.

Shockingly, American and European Jews and Christians are the most active for Palestinian liberation and against the war on Iraq.  How embarrassing to see the small number of Muslims active on such issues.  Muslims out of fear of losing their worldly gains hide their heads in the sand even when Muslims die at the hands of Muslims or Non-Muslims.   Ironically but Gloriously, Islam came to free Muslims from fear.  Allah (SWT) promised us victory if we worship Him, be patient, steadfast, and give Him the glory and victory.   As mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah, Muslims will sideline the Qur’an and abandon their faith.

3.  CHRISTIAN EVANGELISTS:   BUSH, Aschroft, Falwell, Robertson, Graham, Jerry Vines, Benny Hinn, Hal Lindsey etc.;  who converted from Racists (against Civil Rights Laws) and Anti-Semites to die hard Pro-Israel advocates after Israel’s victory in 1967.  They took Israel’s rapid victory over Arab nations as a sign from God that  they can hasten the Second Coming of Christ by supporting Israel thus leading to Armageddon (Nuclear Holocaust) where the majority of Jews will be killed and only 144,000 will be converted to Christianity and saved.   Bush is strongly supported by these Armageddon demons who claim their allegiance to “Christ, the Prince of Peace”.   These Evangelists have attacked Allah (SWT) as a false God,  the Prophet (SAW) as a”demonic possessed pedophile and terrorists”, Islam as a “violent terroristic religion”; Muslims as “backward, irrational, and violent by nature”, and the Holy Qur’an “as a theft of Jewish theology”.

Were American Muslims outraged, did they demonstrate in the streets, did they overwhelm these men with calls, letters, and emails; did boycott advertisers on CBS, did they overwhelm newspapers with letters of outrage and called in massive numbers to Radio and Television Talk Shows, did they come in huge numbers to mosques to pray and fast, did they pass out leaflets and demonstrate in front of these men’s churches, did they hold conferences and seminars to counteract these attacks, did they join with other national organizations to refute these attacks, do they have qualified media spokesperson to go many national and local television and radio stations to express their outrage and demand an apology, did they overwhelm Bush and Congress demanding that they condemn such attacks, and on and on——OF COURSE NOT——TODAY MUSLIMS ARE SILENT WHEN ALL THAT IS HOLY IN ISLAM IS ATTACKED, SO WHY SHOULD THEY CARE WHEN MUSLIMS DIE.

Bin Laden’s 9-11 terrorism was the best gift to Bush and his supporters.  They found a reason, a voice, a purpose, and an opportunity to finally establish total American Hegemony over Muslims, oil, and the world.   Through control of oil America can choke and blackmail the economies of Europe, Japan, and the rest of the world.  OPEC will end.  Long Live Caesar’s Bush and Sharon.

2.  Recognize that the only Strength and Unity amongst all Muslims is ISLAM.   They must uphold Justice for all, Enjoin the Good and Prohibit Evil.  Muslims must learn to TRUST each other in all matters and not continue to harbor the Inferiority complex that  “foreigners” know better and are more trustworthy in all fields than the “dark skinned” Muslim.

3.  If Muslim rulers are corrupt or evil, change them.  Install a democratically elected Muslim government that implements Muslim Shariah, Fiqh, and Sunnah.  Treat all Muslims, especially women, and all Non-Muslims equally and with respect.  ABANDON TRIBALISM (as directed in the Holy Qur’an) and all forms of violence and terrorism, especially against innocent civilians, as a means of settling scores.  However, if Muslim nations are attacked than all Muslims must defend their faith, rights, properties, and nations.  Above all, Islam is a faith of peace and justice with respect for all faiths, peoples, and human rights.  Only defensive wars are allowed in Islam.

Am I dreaming?  Is that unachievable?  In the short term, yes.  But any understanding of early Islamic history and the rapid explosion of Islam from the Arabian desert to Spain and China will provide hope, encouragement, and a passion for faith to any Muslim willing to devote himself/herself to the ONE GOD, ALLAH (SWT) and His Blessed Prophet (SAW).  We only have to read the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah to find our Straight Path to truth, peace, justice, and victory, InshaAllah.

FIRST AND RIGHT NOW ALL MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD MUST LET BUSH, BLAIR, AND SHARON KNOW THAT NO WAR ON IRAQ, PALESTINE, JERUSALEM, OR ANY OTHER MUSLIM NATION WILL BE TOLERATED ANYMORE.  LET’S FILL THE STREETS WITH OUR VOICES AND BODIES.  NO ONE AND NOTHING CAN STOP MUSLIMS BURNING WITH THE TRUTH OF ISLAM, A BLESSING FROM ALLAH (SWT) TO THE BEST UMMAH THAT ENJOINS THE GOOD AND PROHIBITS EVIL,  A FAITH OF MODERATION, PEACE, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.  BUT MUSLIMS ARE WILLING TO DIE DEFENDING THEIR FAITH, UMMAH, HOLY PLACES, PROPERTIES, DIGNITY AND HONOR.  INSHA-ALLAH.
