Pakistani “way” of aiding the victims of the earthquake

It consists mainly in expelling ALL Christians from their homes:

Reports from Catholic leaders spearheading the relief work following the earthquake say that hundreds or even thousands of people near Joharabad, close to Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, are being made homeless, with no prospect of alternative accommodation being found.

In an interview with Aid to the Church in Need, Bishop Anthony Lobo of Islamabad-Rawalpindi said he feared that the incident of forced ejections he had uncovered was just one of many taking place across the region.

The bishop continued: “In one district near Joharabad, all the people are being thrown out — all of them are Christians. We are the most vulnerable people, we are very poor and we are easy targets.”

He said the ejections were all the more insulting to the Christian community because the government had plenty of land of its own on which to house the displaced Kashmiri people.

But, according to the bishop, the authorities preferred housing the refugees in Christian homes because it would save them the costly and time-consuming task of erecting shelters on alternative sites.

Ahmadenijad: Israel is a jew camp

What a manner of wishing Happy New Year has this man!!!

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s hard-line president who has said the Holocaust was a myth, now has charged that European countries sought to complete the genocide by establishing a Jewish state in the midst of Muslim countries.

“Don’t you think that continuation of genocide by expelling Jews from Europe was one of their aims in creating a regime of occupiers of Al-Quds (Jerusalem)?” the official Islamic Republic News agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying Sunday. “Isn’t that an important question?”

Ahmadinejad said Europeans had decided to create a “Jewish camp” as the best means for ridding the continent of Jews. He said the camp, Israel, now enjoyed support from the United States and Europe in the slaughter of Muslims.

I think no comments are needed.

HAMAS Targets Spain

As Rachel Ehrenfeld says (via jihadwatch.org):

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Desatinos’ efforts earlier this year to remove HAMAS from the European Union’s terrorist list, have done little to change HAMAS’ agenda. It is not only Palestine that children in the West Bank and Gaza are asked to liberate; now they are asked to liberate Seville. The HAMAS children’s magazine, Al-Fateh, in a recent issue, (No. 66), tells the children about the city called Asbilia (Seville) and calls on them to free it, together with the whole country, from the infidels and to reinstate Muslim rule.
UPDATE: I recommend this magnificent article of Daniel Pipes.

UPDATE II: I also recommend this post from the Elder of Ziyon.

Muslims in the United States: Truths and Calumnies

I have founded this article in an Italian Blog called “Unpolitically Correct Blog“. Although most posts are in Italian some of them are in English. Ocassionally I would post them here.

Like this one, called as the title of this post. It appeared in THE FREE COPTS and was written by Magdi Khalil.

The recent disturbing articles and news in the Arabic media may very well lead people to believe that the Muslims living in the United States are being subjected to collective persecution or even eradication–a false accusation easily refuted by the fact that millions of Muslims continue to apply for emigration to, and temporary residence in, the United States for study and business purposes. Polls conducted by credible organizations show that even now, and in spite of the unprecedented hostility towards the United States and the West, millions of Muslims around the world still aspire to live in the United States or Europe.

I would like to shed light on the situation of Muslims living in the United States, and to call the readers’ attention to a number of significant facts:

1. Muslims are able to practice their religious rituals and celebrations freely, as well as openly maintaining and asserting their cultural traditions.

2. They are granted total religious freedom including the freedom to proselytize anywhere, even within the American prison system; a CNN report indicated that the ratio of prisoners who convert to Islam each year is 1:6.

3. Muslims have the right to establish Islamic schools, institutes and universities anywhere in the United States with no constrictions; the American government has even provided support to some of these institutions.

4. Muslims have the right to establish their own media, with no restrictions or particular conditions, whether they will operate in their own languages or in the English language. They also have total access to Arab and Islamic media in the form of newspapers, magazines, and satellite channels, and though most of those are openly hostile to the United States, none of them have been banned by the United States.

5. There are numerous registered Islamic institutions and associations that are concerned with the defense of Muslims’ rights, freely operating under the American law. No restrictions are imposed on these associations as long as they are not associated with international terrorist organizations.

6. Muslims in America have the full right to wear the Islamic outfit, and to worship during working hours in most governmental agencies, schools, and institutes.

7. At the inauguration of the American Congress cycle, verses from the Holy “Quran” and Islamic prayers are recited among other prayers, underlining the fact that Islam is part of the mainstream religious landscape of the United States.

8. Muslims have the right to build mosques anywhere in the United States with no restrictions other than the ones that apply to buildings in general and to other houses of worship.

9. Muslim feasts are considered official holidays in schools where there is a significant Muslim presence, as well as for Muslim employees.

10. Following the events of September 11, 2001, a strong warning was issued against targeting the Muslims or subjecting them to abusive or vengeful measures, clearly stating that offenders would be subjected to serious penalties.

11. Complaints of abuse or discrimination are examined and handled with honesty and earnestness.

12. The Bush administration has offered its apology to Muslims, and openly rejected the insulting approach used by a few individuals in the media.

13. Members of the American administration speak respectfully about the Islamic religion in all occasions, making a clear distinction between Islam and terrorism.

14. President Bush organized an “Iftar celebration” at the White House that was attended by several members from the American administration, prominent members of the Arab and Islamic community, and guests from the Islamic World. Colin Powell, the then secretary of state, held a similar celebration in the State Department.

15. President George Bush visited several Islamic institutes in the wake of the events of September 11, in support of the American Muslims. During these visits he explicitly warned against any violation of Muslims’ rights.

16. The United States issued an Islamic postage stamp to celebrate the Islamic feasts. The stamp bearing the words “Blessed Feast” was reissued this year on the occasion of the Holy month of “Ramadan.”

17. The American president acknowledges the Islamic feasts and makes sure to pass on his good wishes to American Muslims and Muslims around the world.

18. The recent statistics of the Diversity Immigrant Visa program indicate that the number of visas allotted to Islamic countries has not decreased. Muslims who are currently residing in the United States and who have completed the legal requirements were granted American citizenship; there was no recorded violation of the Muslims’ rights in that respect.

19. Income statistics indicate that the per capita personal income of the Muslims in the United States exceeds that of the Americans themselves.

20. Muslims who suffer from discriminatory practices have the right to legally sue the organization or party that violated their legal rights; there are several American institutions which are dedicated to helping Muslims obtain their legal rights.

While a few unfortunate incidents took place following the events of September 11, they can only be described as isolated incidents that were effectively handled by the American authorities. Mostly, these incidents consisted of minor harassments, except in one case when a Muslim was killed.
Hopefully, these facts can help to clarify the truth about the Muslims’ situation in the United States
