The corporate media isn’t just distorting the facts on the Gaza assault, they’re flat out covering them up. On July 7, 2014 Israel began a massive assault on the Gaza strip of Palestine. In the first week alone Israel dropped over 400 tons of bombs, killing over 130 Palestinians. Most were civilians, about half of them were women and children. By the time you are watching the the number will be higher.
Israel’s official justification for this wholesale slaughter: the murder of three Israeli teenagers which Israel blames on Hamas. That’s not the real reason. First of all Israel has not produced one single piece of evidence implicating Hamas or even a Palestinian in the murders, and in fact the the evidence we do have indicates that that murderers were Israeli. You see on Tuesday July 1st, The Jerusalem Post released the audio of the kidnapped teen’s distress call to police, and in that call the kidnappers can be heard telling the boys to put their heads down in HEBREW. According to the Jerusalem Post prior to being leaked to the public this audio was being held under a gag order by the Israeli government…
The State Secrets privilege is a powerful law that allows the US government to withhold information that might harm national security. But federal courts are using this law to dismiss entire lawsuits–lots of them–often before reviewing the evidence. Does the government’s need to protect state secrets trump the rights of those seeking their day in court?
The United Arab Emirates ranks number one in the world for treating women with respect, according to a major scientific study comparing development and well-being among 132 nations of the world.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said the evidence on respect for women reflected fundamental truths about Emirati culture and traditions.
This video includes an interesting speech by an ex-Hindu brother Ameer Sharma, who was guided to the message of Islam by a Muslim preacher. In this video, he pointed out that his family and his all ancestors were Hindu and strongly committed to Hinduism, rather, they were priests and religious leaders since centuries after centuries. During his journey of faith, he came to meet a Muslim preacher who proved to him with clear and convincing evidence that Allah exists. The proofs were so evident that convinced him that the existence of Allah is as crystal clear as the existence a table and chair in front of him. Also he was led through the plain proofs that the Glorious Qur’an is the literal word of Allah (Glory be to Him). He told his mother, an orthodox Hindu, by practice and faith about his belief and expressed his satisfaction with those proofs, she was surprised and said: “Have you really, got proofs about the existence of God?” Brother Ameer Sharma has pointed out that his family is an observant of vegetarian method of food that is widespread among Hindus. He has addressed the subject of veil (Hijab) in Islam, he also spoke about the importance of concentration in prayer, and how he was blessed with this spiritual bliss. Brother Ameer Sharma also recognizes that his conversion to Islam was a shock to his family because they were strict adherents of Hinduism, but he was characterized with courage in the expression of his conviction truthfully and honestly. He has cited some Qur’anic verses in his interesting talk, viewing that he felt peace and tranquility in Islam. I think that this video is enough to encourage our Hindu brothers to read about Islam that needs a high level of moral courage. I pray Allah the Almighty to guide us all to the straight path, and help us to follow the foot steps of this brave brother in examining the truth of Islam.

This past weekend an unarmed African American teenager, Mike Brown, was shot and killed by the police in Ferguson, MO. Brown’s death comes just weeks after the NYPD killed Eric Garner, an unarmed black father. We do not see these as isolated incidents but as evidence of the continuing sickness of white supremacy that has plagued this country since its inception. These recent events are an extension of the state violence that targeted the indigenous peoples of the Americas and enslaved Africans. We see these deaths as part of the systemic project of state violence at work not only in the past but in racist policies and attacks against immigrants domestically and in the conquest and war mongering of US imperial policy abroad. We believe black life matters. We believe all life matters. We condemn all forms of police brutality and state violence perpetrated by our government in the strongest terms possible.
On August 4, 2014 the IDF released what they claimed to be scans of a captured Hamas combat manual which explains the benefits of human shields (Captured Hamas Combat Manual Explains Benefits of Human Shields). This juicy story got quite a few people excited, and within 2 days their blog post had over 81,000 likes on Facebook. It turns out though, that the documents that they uploaded were forgeries, and sloppy forgeries at that. The work was so shoddy that you don’t even have to be an expert to see the mistake. Let’s take a a look.
