While the Western campaign to demonize Muslims is used to justify its war agenda, ordinary Muslims are being targeted by the Zionists, Christians, Hindus and even ‘peaceful’ Buddhists everywhere!
Black History Month is now well established in the US and Canada but it only ‘celebrates’ establishment-approved figures, not the true revolutionaries.
Murdering and mutilating men, women, and children; read and find out who did this.
Canada is a multicultural country but this is no guarantee against racist teachers. The case of one School principal in York Region (same locality where Crescent is based) has brought to the fore the danger of such people poisoning young minds.3
The much-maligned Muslims are the greatest victims of hate crimes as the growing attacks on Islamic centres and mosques show.1
The police in America can do no wrong even when they kill innocent people. Since the police investigate themselves, they destroy the evidence. In the unlikely event of a case going before the court, racist judges ensure police are exonerated. Not surprisingly, so many blacks have been killed in recent months. Black anger is understandable in view of such brutality. Even President Obama says the justice system is broken but is helpless to fix it.1
Justin Trudeau, Canada's Prime Minister-elect, has made a number of very encouraging promises. Will he be able to deliver on them is the big question. He has a lot going for him but whether he will be able to break the stanglehold of powerful lobby groups has yet to be tested. He is off to a good start with a clear majority in parliament. And the Muslim community had a lot to do with his resounding victory.
In this ninth volume of the multi-volume tafsir series, Imam Muhammad al-‘Asi has dealt with only the first 40 ayat of Sura al-Mai’dah. These ayat relate to important injunctions requiring detailed treatment, and hence the explanations here enable readers to understand the divine commands with the motivation to go out there and make some changes. Those readers that have followed the tafsir series thus far would appreciate the depth of treatment accorded to the Qur’anic ayat herein. Imam al-‘Asi has taken special care to link the divine commands to today’s reality and identify the present-day covenant violators and oppressors.2
Another horror has been perpetrated in the US, this time by a 21-year-old white racist supremacist in Charleston, South Carolina.

Zionist society is deeply racist. Ethiopian Jews, like the Palestinians face the brunt of this racism. Ethiopian Jews are expected to sacrifice their lives for the racist entity but they are not treated as equal citizens. Instead, they routinely face police brutality, just like that other great democracy, the US where police brutality has been rampant targeting and killing unarmed African-Americans.
Police in America shoot and kill black men, especially teens, first and worry about their guilt later. Even in death, their character assassination continues as the case of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO shows. The unarmed teen was shot six times execution-style even after he had raised his hands in surrender. Life for black teens is extremely precarious in the US even if one of them makes it to the White House!
Racism is so deeply embedded in the American psyche that even with an African-American as president, killing blacks is routine, as Trayvon Martin’s murder verdict showed.
The NYPD has a track record of excessive surveillance of ethnic and racial minorities, including blacks, Hispanics and Muslims.

By staging a walk out while President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad of Iran was addressing the UN anti-racism conference in Geneva on April 20, the European countries have exposed their own racism without affecting the ultimate outcome of the meeting. Representatives from a tiny minority of European countries that have a chequered history regarding human rights are all former colonialists who have perpetrated horrible crimes during the colonial era.
We have gathered here in the follow up to the Durban conference against racism and racial discrimination to work out practical mechanisms for our holy and humanitarian mission. Over the last centuries, humanity has gone through tremendous suffering and pain. In the Middle Ages, thinkers and scientists were sentenced to death.
