the empire strikes back…
and a little food for thought
This weblog is the humble attempt, of an internet novice, to educate and inform — with a bit of commentary and a little food for thought. The inspiration for this weblog arose out of my desire to set the record stratight, so to speak, about key issues of the day — particularly those issues that deal with Islam/Muslims and the broader Middle East.
Actually, the real inspiration for this blog came from the many pundits, talking-heads, kings-of-spin, so-called Islam experts, and politicians (like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich who recently said that Islamic law mandated “honor killings”– it important to note is that in the same speech he put all of this Islamophobic nonsense in the context of the broader “war on terror”) who have been spreading their anti-Islamic vitriol for quite some time now.
After having seen such repeated lies and distortion about Islam over the last six years or so — I decided that silence is complicity and that as long as I allow the lies of the liars and the falsehood of these charlatans to carry the day — then I may as well be complicit in their sins. Now, more than ever, Muslims cannot afford the luxury of silence. Silence, in and of itself, is an act of self sabotage. In order to make dawah to Muslims and Non-Muslims about Islam — we must also expose the liars who attempt to tarnish the religion of Islam and sunnah of it’s Messenger (sallahu alayhi wa’salaam).
