After the catastrophic attacks of September 11 2001 monumental sorrow and a feeling of desperate and understandable anger began to permeate the American psyche. A few people at that time attempted to promote a balanced perspective by pointing out that the United States had also been responsible for causing those same feelings in people in other nations, but they produced hardly a ripple. Although Americans understand in the abstract the wisdom of people around the world empathizing with the suffering of one another, such a reminder of wrongs committed by our nation got little hearing and was soon overshadowed by an accelerated “war on terrorism.”
But we must continue our efforts to develop understanding and compassion in the world. Hopefully, this article will assist in doing that by addressing the question “How many September 11ths has the United States caused in other nations since WWII?” This theme is developed in this report which contains an estimated numbers of such deaths in 37 nations as well as brief explanations of why the U.S. is considered culpable.

Bravo Uruguay! The Country of Uruguay, South America, under the leadership of President Jose Mujica has volunteered to host six of the wrongfully detained Guantanamo Bay prisoners. This is Humanity at its best! People of other faiths and nations coming to the rescue of the oppressed! It shows Muslims that there are still many people in this world who are not bent on desroying Islam and exterminating Muslims. May Almighty Allah bless this land and guide its inhabitants to His Last Testament, Al Qur’an and His final Messenger Muhammad (pbuh).
” SubhaanAllah, even their Museum of Natural History (shown here) is shaped like a masjid. Muslims are growing in number in Uruguay and there is a bright future Insha Allah.”

This past June marked the 45th anniversary of the Arab defeat of the 1967 war. War is normally measured by its final outcome, but many individual heroes faithfully gave up their lives for the Arab side, defending the honor of their nations. The actions of those men deserve to be highlighted and explained, especially the contributions of the Pakistani pilot Saiful Azam and the brave Jordanian soldiers of the battle of Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem.
