O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy. [Quran 2.208]
On 19 January 1824, one of the earliest Muslims in America, Yarrow Mamout, died in Georgetown Virginia.
He was enslaved in West Africa and brought to Maryland in the late 1700s. He eventually received his freedom in 1796 and went on to live, as a Muslim, in Washington DC until he died.
Aid pledged at Cairo meet to rebuild enclave devastated by Israeli assault surpasses what Palestinians had asked for
Global donors have pledged a sum of $5.4bn in aid to reconstruct the Gaza Strip amid warnings that the battered Palestinian enclave remained a “tinderbox” following its summer war with Israel.
“The participants pledged approximately $5.4bn,” Norwegian foreign minister, Boerge Brende, said during the closing statement at the Cairo conference which Norway co-hosted.
“For Almighty Allah, the Past, Present and Future are the Same!” We, human beings, have been given Prophets and Messengers and clear guidance. There is no need for the killing, hatred, racism, exploitation, Ebola, or any other evil.We need to wake up as a human race before it is too late. Imagine what the animals think about us (if they could) when they see us destroying the very earth that was given to us as a blessing!!! This is an Islamic Center; not in Cairo, Fez, Kano, Lahore, Jakarta or Dakar but in Washington D.C.!!! SubhaanAllah, the light of Allah will eventually shine over all things!!!

JERUSALEM, Aug 31 (Reuters) – Israel announced on Sunday a land appropriation in the occupied West Bank that an anti-settlement group termed the biggest in 30 years, drawing Palestinian condemnation and a U.S. rebuke.

Global revulsion at the mind-numbing carnage of Israel’s onslaught on Gaza seems finally to have spurred some of the western political class to speak out. The resignation of Sayeeda Warsi, Britain’s first Muslim cabinet minister, in protest against her government’s “morally indefensible”stance, emboldened Nick Clegg, the deputy prime minister, to demand thesuspension of arms export licences to Israel.
Large demonstrations against Israel’s assault on Palestinians in Gaza were staged across the US on Saturday. The public outpouring of support for Palestinians in US streets suggests that Washington’s pro-Israel policies are becoming increasingly unpopular, a trend supported by a recent poll on Israel’s latest aggression, which finds that young Americans are twice as likely to support Palestinian rights than Israeli occupation.
Tens of thousands of Americans held a demonstration in front of the White House in Washington, DC. Protestors travelled in buses from around the country to join the national rally, waving Palestinian flags and chanting “free Palestine” in the US capital.
Even with Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana, drug cartels from Mexico (including Sinaloa Cartel, Los Zetas, and Gulf Cartel) still control most of the illegal drug trade in the US.
