Islam In Alaska
"We could have made only one belief, but for each peoples we have appointed different laws and rites, so instead; compete in good works and argue kindly; for there is no compulsion in religion." Qur'an 2:256, 5:48, 22:37, 29:46

This is an email in reguards to the response you had posted to one muslim's simple question. Basically the question was, "Why does this website have a link to the murders of Jewish children in the name of Islam?" I found your answer to be out-of-line, hateful, and a terrific representation of what Islam is not.
Are you really a muslim? I'm serious. I read many, many, many of your posts and they are just appalling.
First of all, I came to this website because my husband and I are moving from the "lower 48" to Alaska, inshallah, sometime next year. With the thoughts of moving, I wanted to check out the Islamic communities of Alaska. My searching brought me to this website. The first thing I noticed was the link for the murders of the Jewish children. I swallowed the lump that formed in my throat and continued through the website. As I read more and more, I have become very discouraged and thought the muslim communities in Alaska to be rather distasteful, and scary. I'm going to stop here for just a moment and say that if there are any muslims from Alaska who would really like to clear up my conceptions of the society, please feel free to email me at (due to privacy concerns, your email, with address, will be forwarded to Sister Jennifer).
Okay, moving on. Now I'm going to get to the point of my email; to try to understand your response a little better to the question I had mentioned above. You stated that it is really embarrassing to be one of the only muslim websites to feature such a link. If it is so embarrassing, tell me, why post it? First of all, you didn't give a clear answer. The answer was diluted with a bunch of hoopla over the good-doers of the Jewish communities and the poor behavior of Anchorage muslims, not to mention your slandering of fellow brothers and sisters who chose to go with the Salafi sect of Islam. I'm going to quote from your response, "....(referring to the jews)they are just such sad sad souls that are just entirely consumed by hate and anger in general at anyone and everyone who is even slightly different than themselves (not just the jews)..." Now take a closer look at what you wrote. Look at what I wrote in bold. You slander the Jews for their poor behavior because they hate people because they are different, but I notice that you are doing the same thing when you slander the Salafi muslims. I don't know what sect of Islam you belong to, and I don't care. You practice Islam the way you believe, and the Salafis practice Islam the way they believe. What defines a muslim? A muslim is someone who believes in only one God and that Muhammed (PBUH) was his last messenger. So, as long as the Salafis believe that, then my dear friend, they are still your brothers and sisters of Islam, and you should take kindness upon them as well. End of Story.
Second of all, I noticed how you pointed out all of the wonderful dealings of every other religion in Anchorage and you slammed the Islamic community for what they do--or what they don't do. Instead of whining about the laziness of the community, why not be an example setter and rally everyone around? That would be a much better alternative to your 'pro-Islamic' website. Again, you make it sound as if this is Islam as a whole. Don't confuse one community with the whole religion. You ask the question, "...What great appreciation have we Muslims shown for the great outpouring of love and support that we have received from so many hundreds of thousands of good hearted Americans, Jewish, Christian and seculars?..." Have you ever heard of salat? Alhamdulillah for the love and support of Americans. We offer dua for their safekeeping and for their reversion to Islam. That's what the Islamic society can do. Allah controls everything, including the destiny of non-muslims. Through prayer, inshallah, he'll choose a different path for them. The Jews should be so lucky that we even consider adding them into our daily prayers. So as long as the Jews are killing Palestinians, they will never understand peace.
I also notice your over-usage of the word, "G-D." You use it like it's a bad word to say God. Well, God God God God. Allah Allah Allah Allah. Now where does it say in the Quran that you can't type the word 'God?' It's not blasphemy. It's not sacreligious. Your inability to fully spell out that word will forever remain a mystery to me...
You just slandered Islam completely in your response. If you dislike certain behaviors and certain practices of Islam, why did you revert to Islam?
You made a statement that you converted to Islam, like you are owed something or above everyone. And you also told people to leave the country for a more successful Islamic country. How dare you have the gall to say that? I reverted to Islam and I am just as humble as the next born-muslim. Allah wiped my slate clean. That's good enough for me.
You also assumed the person who asked you the question of why you post that link was a Salafi muslim. Just because they didn't say, 'Salam?' Okay, okay, it is a requirement for muslims to greet eachother as such, and they shoud be re-educated about there mannerism, but you cannot just assume they are Salafi, much like the way I am assuming you are a jew, but I can't exactly run around accusing people of something I haven't confirmed. Say...I just noticed something...you don't exactly offer 'Salam' in your responses. Are you a Salafi? Give me a break.
I hope you will post my email as written, I understand my comments are long, but inshallah, you will post every last word. I appreciate you taking the time to read my rebuttal. Take care. Salam. Sister Jennifer G. rec. May 22 1:24am
(Sister Jennifer's Questions in red, pasted AS RECEIVED)
Thank-you for your comment. I've re-pasted your questions below for the ease of any readers. They are in red text. I've altered your email, by also using red text for those identical portions to make it faster to find your original quote "in context." The over-all context of your comment, in spite of its heavy criticism, I found, was one of courtesy, a concern over injustice, bad manners and a devotion to ALL Muslims. It began with Salaams, was signed with Salaams even including a personalized "take care." Your definition of who is a Muslim, would include from the Shia to many of the "cults". And you signed with your FULL name. The Prophet is said to have warned that our religion would be saved only by diversity and active self-criticism and it would be destroyed by conformity and extremeism. Unity is not uniformity, but instead that which can unite the greatest degree of diversity is the greater accomplishment. So, I think you desrve as thorough of an answer as I can do.
There are three posted comments now to the memorial page, and many many more muslims who have shared your sentiments both verbally and in emails not intended as a comment for posting. In fact, I have not received even one positive comment directly. One thing though, the weblogs clearly indicate a likely hood there might be even one family member of one of these murdered children who may very well have seen that there is at least one Muslim in this whole world who is publicly concerned about the murder of their innocent child -- if that is true this is absolutely all I need to continue at peace with what I have done.
It is like the ultimate challenge to my endurance in this islam (intentionally not capitalized) that I have reverted to. And while it does put that endurance on the edge, I can say that after over 40+ years in heavy and constant study of the major religions, including 10 years in Judaism and learning a very sloppy minimal Hebrew and Koine Greek (New Testament), I am more solid in islam today than ever and more filled with gratefulness than ever.
Let me begin by pulling two of your questions out of order and responding with THREE things before I attempt some briefer answers to the rest of your questions:
1.- You stated that it is really embarrassing to be one of the only muslim websites to feature such a link. If it is so embarrassing, tell me, why post it?
2.- You just slandered Islam completely in your response. If you dislike certain behaviors and certain practices of Islam, why did you revert to Islam?
One, there is a very famous line from a speech given by Muhammad Abduh on his return to Egypt, around the 1950's, from exile in Europe (roughly): "When I was in Europe I was seeing so so much islam everywhere but I saw very few Muslims; now I am back in Egypt and I see many many Muslims but so little islam."
Two, before reading further, I would ask you to read the very brief excerpt (click here) from the book by the daughter of Little House on The Prairie's, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Rose Wilder Lane's father had an Arabic derived first name that was handed down over the generations from when his crusading descendant had been spared by a victorious Muslim. The story goes that this was all that was asked by the sword spareing Muslim. Possibly for this and other reasons Rose spent many years living all over the Islamic world at first as a nurse and later as a very famous writer. She was a close personal friend of President Hoover for many many years. That excerpt from the chapter of her book, "The Discovery of Freedom," called "The Second Attempt," is about her very positive take on islam. However this webmaster re-titled the excerpt "What Wrong With Islam" because that is what that particular portion of her chapter on islam is really mostly about.
And three, so much of the Western (non-Muslim) Academic world considers that it owes this great debt to islam for saving written pasts that another religion had attempted to wipe out the evidence of. So everywhere these early Muslims went instead of pushing Arabic (as if elevating it to the status of an icon and shirk), they instead not only first thoroughly learned the language of the culture they were visiting but they reveled and took written joy in whatever else they found superior or interesting; becoming the modern world's first masters in linguistics, semantics and multi-cultural anthropology. It was not only those polytheistic Greeks and the Romans (kufars as any Salafi would interrupt), whose written civilizations nascent islam almost literally saved for posterity, but there were many other minor examples besides. That great many-disciplined "Einstein equivalent" of his times, scientist al-Biruni, did an extensive study of Hindu and its languages and wrote a once well used treatise on Hinduism (more kufar's according to too many modern time "Muslims"). His pioneerings in the Muslim originated science of Geodesy (how many Muslims today even know what this word means) led him to strongly desire to devise a simple laymen's method for determining the direction of prayer -- for many of the different religions not just Muslims. He did just that, dedicating it to all faiths. One such device using sun shadows, consisted of only a simple marked card and a plumb line; sometimes then called a "camel" (not the animal).
Yet today, all over America, you see muslims with their cheap magnetic compasses; while standing inside buildings next to power lines determining Qibla. Only the fewest of Salaat Times sites even explain that the bearing they give for Qibla is a geographic bearing NOT a magnetic bearing which is because they fail to be TRUTHFUL and honest and acknowledge that their data is coming from the United States ("kufar") government not Muslim data sources. There is only one Muslim owned satellite (used for islam) that I know of, owned by the Qadiani Ahmadiyya's.
Finally, it was this style of islam that lead the Turks to belittle Spain on the occasion of their cultural cleansing and expulsions of the Jews from Spain. On offering the Jews a refuge, the essence of the Ottoman's response to Spain was "your loss our gain." And don't forget that both the Turks and a large percentage of the Mongols converted to the religion of the people they had only just recently DEFEATED. A victor converting to the religion of ones they have just finished defeating is almost non-existent in history and yet occurred multiple times in islamic history. Only exceptional examples of behavior could accomplish this with such a language barrier. Thus the sunnaah of the Prophet is example yes, but example is NOT "Simon-says" imitation; but ONLY how OTHERS actually see us, how THEY judge us; regardless of how we see ourselves.
This is the style of islam that I reverted to. This is, I believe, the ONLY style of Muslim behavior that could EVER produce a golden age. Just as this same style did for America as Laura Ingall's daughter Rose has pointed out. All this is why the islam of today is such a great lie. This style of "keep-your-mouth-shut", suppress other opinions, islam could never produce such a Golden Age of diversity and over-all tolerance as too many good-hearted people are too quickly finding out. As the Qur'an points out so beautifully in it's reply to the very first theological dispute in the time of the Prophet; G-d or Allaah or ar-Rahmaan or God or . . ., could care less by what name he is called. Today, as far as I can see about the only thing that Muslims excel in is complaining and accusations of heresy. Yet no where has this Muslim called any Salafi a Kafir, and with only the fewest of exceptions, like bin-Laden, considers it an obligation to either pray behind them or accept ANY apparently well meant invitation where reasonably possible (as long stated elsewhere on this very site). The reverse is seldom the case, that I've experienced.
Are you really a muslim?
I, shakur-abdel-Haleem do say: Ash-hadoo anla il lah ha, il Allaah. Ash-Hadoo anna Muhammadana RasulooLaah.
What defines a muslim?
Your answer was way better stated than I could ever do with my embarrassing handicap at being brief; you wrote: "A muslim is someone who believes in only one God and that Muhammed (PBUH) was his last messenger. So, as long as the Salafis believe that, then my dear friend, they are still your brothers and sisters of Islam, and you should take kindness upon them as well. End of Story."
But the ONLY identifiable sect or school of modern islam that I know that ACTUALLY subscribes to your definition in practice, besides just empty words, are the Lahore Ahmaddiyya Movement in Islam who constantly attempt to remind Muslims of the Qur'an's stern warnings against kufar calling. This webmaster worships or follows, no school, no sect, no scholar and zero humans; nothing except the Rabeel al-Ameem, the Creator of All worlds. But, as I read the Qur'an, it also calls both Noah and Abraham Muslims. Of course, both lived long before the Prophet. Over and over the Qur'an tries to remind us that islam is NOTHING new, but instead just that same simple message which our Creator has been trying to give us since day one. I believe the Qur'an emphasizes Abraham because he most symbolizes one who struggles hard to make G-d the CENTER around which his daily life and desires revolve, his FIRST priority. Can anyone honestly state that one cannot find individual members of many different faiths who try to live like this. How else could the Prophet's community have seen all those people from the many various cultures and religions and languages they encountered who were converted in such a short time. Seldom do people convert to the religion of those who are putting them down in one way or another.
Second of all, I noticed how you pointed out all of the wonderful dealings of every other religion in Anchorage and you slammed the Islamic community for what they do--or what they don't do. Instead of whining about the laziness of the community, why not be an example setter and rally everyone around?
I'm sorry. I do not believe it is proper for me to publicly answer that question as I do not consider it proper islamic manners. So I will let your accusation here stand, as accused, and without attempting to counter it.
Have you ever heard of Salat? Alhamdulillah for the love and support of Americans. We offer dua for their safekeeping and for their reversion to Islam. That's what the Islamic society can do.
You are so so right, but I don't think we are really doing this, that I've seen; it's obvious that you are Sister.
I also notice your over-usage of the word, "G-D." You use it like it's a bad word to say God. Well, God God God God. Allah Allah Allah Allah. Now where does it say in the Quran that you can't type the word 'God?' It's not blasphemy. It's not sacreligious. Your inability to fully spell out that word will forever remain a mystery to me...
I don't mind the spelling G-O-D at all, in fact, whenever I am addressing specifically Christians, I always hope to remember to use this spelling out of respect. Sadly, this is just another example of the degraded and grossly ignorant condition of the modern Jew hating Muslim. Muslims might do well to study one sign of G-d in nature. The Qur'an seems to suggest that we should study Allaah's signs in nature as a preference over arguing about a bunch of theological B.S. which no-one can really prove. That is the Ostrich. "For those who reflect," this teaches us that if the modern Muslim does not soon get his or her head out of the sand then Allaah may have to give this Deen to someone else as it also warns in the Qur'an.
Ask any 12 Americans what the spelling G-O-D means, they will be happy to explain to you that this means, Jesus the Son of God who IS God to most people, and to many others the son of Mary the Mother of God. Then ask them what the spelling G-d means, no this is not the Jew's private exclusive name for the Creator. The modern Jew hating muslim is so blinded by Saudi-Salafi sourced hate tracts. For this is just of one of literally hundreds of cite-able examples where it is a Christian or a secular or an atheist or a Jew who is that person on earth today who is actually ACCOMPLISHING, those tasks which Allaah so lovingly has asked that it be us Muslims who accomplish. So it is the Jews who have accomplished --- IN THE PLACE OF --- the Muslims, G-d's most beloved Mitzvah (one of a few Hebrew choices for a command), that the world's people who are astray (no not kufar) be at least made aware that there exists a respectable and powerful community who emphasize the uniqueness and oneness of our mutual Creator. One who both Muslims and Jews believe does not have either a son or a mother. This is what I predict that the majority or at least a healthy minority of any 12 Americans will tell you on seeing this spelling G-d. That this success so angers the average Muslim, is simply just one of the many solid evidences of today's degraded and depraved condition of the 21st Century Ummaah. Just as our earliest Muslim brothers and sisters loved to give credit where credit is do, so do I. I no more mind acknowledging this achievement by todays Judaism than I do the superior method of islamic spelling which I learned from the Salafi's, and, which I have long used.
You made a statement that you converted to Islam, like you are owed something or above everyone. And you also told people to leave the country for a more successful Islamic country. How dare you have the gall to say that?
I am NOT owed, but instead, it is I that owe. Thus my choice of islamic name: grateful (shakur-) servant (abdel-) [of the] Most Clement as in clemency (Haleem). On telling another to leave the country, although I think this a legitimate feeling, "on reflection" I am afraid I will have to agree with you about "the gall" -- well said. Thank-you for the wake-up call, Sister.
You also assumed the person who asked you the question of why you post that link was a Salafi muslim. Just because they didn't say, 'Salam?' Okay, okay, it is a requirement for muslims to greet each other as such, and they should be re-educated about there mannerism, but you cannot just assume they are Salafi, much like the way I am assuming you are a Jew, but I can't exactly run around accusing people of something I haven't confirmed. Say...I just noticed something...you don't exactly offer 'Salam' in your responses. Are you a Salafi? Give me a break.
I am not a Salafi or go by any name or school, but instead I have learned something from almost every school and especially Salafi's, my spellings for instance. There are over 8 major long-term schools of Fiqh or law in islam NOT 4. But as for the rest of your comment, again on reflection, you got me again -- you are right and I was wrong. Twice. However, I should explain that I do not use Salaams on the rebuttals page but I DID and ALWAYS USE IT in all emails to ANY muslim by your excellent definition.
So, sister, we are two Muslims who have tried to remind each other. You have showed beautifully three things: first, never forget the very broad definition of who is or isn't a Muslim; two, don't hesitate to criticize even with passion; and three, it is HOW we do it which will heal or further destroy this religion. Ask any bedouin, anyone in the middle of the desert who depends on their only water from only one large tank, had better keep a highly critical eye out for the very first signs of rust or any other weakness that might suddenly create leaks. Thank-you sister. webmaster 31 May 2003
if this is a pro-Islamic site, why post listings of "jewish children murdered in the name of Allah?" and why give a list of anti-Islamic links? this seems to me a bit counterproductive. sincerely, concerned Muslim Rec 9 May; 9:07pm
Thank-you for your comment. First we will address why we have listed the names of Jewish children on an "islamic" website; then why we post anti-islamic links and finally is this a pro-islamic website.
Actually it is so embarrassing to be one of the very few islamic websites to list those names of children who are the victims of these depraved actions of our co-religionists. This is even more embarrassing when one considers that among only around 14 million Jews worldwide, there are easily over one hundred Jewish websites extremely opposed to what THEY consider to be the crimes of THEIR co-religionists. Their striving for justice dwarfs ours; how shameful. In fact, proportionate to numbers of religious population, Jews who protest Israeli injustices at substantial risk to their lives, wealth or personal freedom far outnumber that required proportionate number of muslims, for a population exceeding 1.25 billion, equally risking in protest of Israel. Where is even one muslim sitting in jail, now as we speak, for protesting against muslim injustices against even non-muslims let alone against Jews?
But it gets even worse than that, as impossible as that would seem. There is actually more specific knowledge among Jewish websites of the details and names and recordings of Palestinian victims than even among all established muslim websites that I've seen; let us know if we missed one. That would be a joy to know about.
For instance, why did your protest against us not include even one link to this information of a such a name list of Palestinian victims of Jews? Such is the ignorance of the Jew-hating "modern" muslim. Those of us who have direct experience with these sick minds know that these are not really Jew-hating muslims at all; but instead they are just such sad sad souls that are just entirely consumed by hate and anger in general at anyone and everyone who is even slightly different than themselves (not just Jews); much like the Kahane style Jewish extremists. Just check that column on the right side of that main Salafi website: http://www.allaahuakbar.net It is so important to list and explain just exactly how almost all the other of us over 1.25 billion muslims are so wrong. Most normal people find this type of thinking to be a sickness; by whatever religious group is doing it not just Salafi's. Neither group is representative of their religion as this webmaster sees it, but instead they are carbon copies of each other differing only by their hijacked outer labels of "Jew" or "Muslim."
Let us just look at the "muslim" record right here in Anchorage Alaska to see even more examples of the shameful degraded condition of this deen which Allaah has asked us to be the BEST in behavior, not the worst. Estimates are that there are in Anchorage Alaska, in excess of 3-5 thousand muslims in Anchorage. So how do we stand in comparison to the other similarly numbered religious groups in the Anchorage area -- at the very very bottom. How many Jews in Anchorage have stood up for muslims, many many. How many Anchorage muslims have stood up for Jews, IN ANY CAPACITY AT ALL, just microscopically shy of zero that I know of. When local incarcerated muslims needed assistance in meeting their worship needs; after over $200 worth of long-distance phone calls all over the lower 48 to muslim organizations and Imams, who was it that finally came to their aid and returned phone calls with assistance -- Jews and Seculars; and locally Catholics and Protestants. What local muslim organization exists to take care of the needs of Anchorage and Alaska's very large transient and seasonal Muslim labor pool -- none. A single Catholic woman provides services to at least one of the frequent visited locations here in Anchorage. What Muslim in Anchorage even knows what and where these locations are -- zero than I know of. What Muslim organization takes regular care of the local Social Service needs of Anchorage Muslims -- again, none; Catholic Social Services does almost all of it. No, not even close to all of this is paid work. Who takes care of the all the medical language and other misc. needs of our hospitalized Muslims, transient and even many locals; which local muslim even knows what these needs are? Almost entirely, seculars, Jews and Christians do this. What about our legal needs? How many calls has this website's Islamic Information Line received from attorneys, some likely Jewish, and others who need language help for muslims they are helping either for free or at super discounted rates? Did these kind souls ever get the help from us local muslims they were begging for so that they could do what is supposed to be our job -- none that I know of.
How about the Anchorage Police Chaplains department which has been offering for years for a volunteer islamic chaplain and this very issue has been raised multiple times at major public Islamic events -- nothing. All over this United States Of America it is largely similar, from my information. What great appreciation have we Muslims shown for the great outpouring of love and support that we have received from so many hundreds of thousands of good hearted Americans, Jewish, Christian and seculars. Why when a few muslims called for an email campaign to encourage the Taliban to release the 8 Christian Aid Workers by posting this request on multiple and major Islamic forum sites was there almost zero response nationwide. What have we done, we are complaining and whining everywhere, and suing at the drop of a hat for millions here and millions there. McDonalds goes out of their way in Michigan to be the first major Fast food chain to offer Halal chicken nuggets to muslims and so many other good examples of outreach by that corporation. So what does one of our largest Muslim organizations in America do, Sound Vision? They promote a boycott anti-Mcdonald campaign by letter and the web. Why? Just because muslims were not included in the infamous Hindu initiated French Fry, trace amount of beef extract, lawsuit. They wanted a take in the millions. Hindu's are vegetarians where usually cows are sacred, so they had at least some slight reason for what most likely was an innocent over site.
I could go on and on and on -- our Deen is in one major mess of ignorance, childishness, anger and hate and just outright tyranny. Most of the places you look our leaders are self-appointed and yet present themselves as representing all or most of their regions muslims, many of them call themselves "President," when no election has occured or would or could occur. These types of depraved behaviors now occurring in our modern times could never even have come close to producing this great and proud golden age of Islam of our great past that we peddle today as if that had something to do with what we are today.
And then just look at your complaints to us about posting anti-islamic links. We happen to have complete faith in the liberty that G-d asks that we grant in order that people may FREELY choose this path of trying to make the DOING of G-d's will a priority in their lives as it was in Abraham's life. What is to fear from freedom of information and speech?
We publish anti-islamic links for the same reason we are publishing your complaint against us, unedited; and for the same reason we will give you the LAST word (this page's stated policy) on this issue should you choose to write it. What is to fear from other information if you are so right besides just making it more clear. The Qur'an reminds us that Allaah specifically intends for those who hearts are sour to find his words of mercy and kindness and justice repulsive. A colonialist could not stand the thought that he would ever have to clean their toilet.
You expose your tyrannical desires of suppressing any views other than your own. Besides what in this world are you so scared of, are you not secure in your own faith in this Deen? Does not most every Imam around the world begin his Friday Sermon with that saying which is meant to remind us that oft repeated reminder in the Qur'an that Allaah guides whoever he will whose hearts seek good? Is not our history just loaded with literally hundreds of examples of our enemies eventually finding islam starting even with our earliest enemies Abu-Sufiyan and Hind?
You Salafi's continue to do nothing but complain and whine and hate and seeth; and worse of all you do it claiming to be the ONLY genuine or authentic voice of Islam -- never telling those to whom you speak that you represent no-one but yourself. Heh, you are in America, we are loaded with religious communal experiments. Here, and somewhat in Europe, but nowhere else you are now totally free to show us all your great truths by actually DOING SOMETHING, ANYTHING. Go and show us how successful your interpretation of islam can be; after-all do you not believe the Qur'an when it reminds us that Allaah promises success to ALL and ANY who are truly following his path. If your ideas ARE that path, then your success is assured.
Otherwise, I would recommend you move to Pakistan or some such other "successful" islamic country. I am an American Convert, though America is far from perfect, and maybe even close to the complacency which now is destroying islam; yet we remain one of the only places on this earth today where the islam of the Prophet, as I've studied it, can today be FREELY practiced. Yes yes one can buy their own land and build a fence and even practice maybe over 80% of Shariah (within that fence), with little to no interference. Others are doing it even as we speak, there are new religious communities forming every day, and no they are not all like Waco/Koresh type communities. There are a several successful and totally seperate ones right here in Alaska.
We consider islaninalaska.com to be a pro-islamic website; but there are some that do not; for instance those who like to say they are "on the Salaf," or Salafi's; and others. Once again, the evidence indicates you yourself are a Salafi as almost all Muslims ALWAYS give salaams as commanded by the Qur'an itself let alone the Hadith; and, additionally, your e-mail is anonymous. Why are you folks always so secretive about everything, what are you so scared of? Of course, by not giving salaams you indicate your likely assertion that the webmaster is an apostate; which more than a few Salafi's believe it is there duty to kill even more so than all the other categories of those who they are commanded to hate and/or kill. The Prophet, even within your own interpretations, requires you to be up front.
Follow the primary advice of the Prophet and go and get some education. All the Jews and the Christians and the Seculars of America whom you likely hate will help you financially to get this education. Then make your own website. We will link you from our front page Post your own list of Palestinian victims, which it is almost entirely Jews who now do this. Many Muslims get a majority of their anti-Israeli info directly or indirectly from The Haaretz Daily. That is an Israeli newspaper; is there an Islamic equivalent somewhere in some islamic country -- there used to be all over the islamic world when we had our golden age; but not now.

Jewish Children Website
Salam Alaikum, I saw your website "The Shame Of Muslims." As a Muslim sister, it makes me sad to see your site. It is sad that innocent children are
being killed of all religions. However, if there should be any
childrens names "honored" on your website, it should be the names of
innocent Muslim children who are killed everyday by Isreali
soldiers "in the name of God" or is it the almighty dollar and land.
Salam, K. (first letter of common Muslim name) Rec. 23 August 7:28pm

We will be happy to publish ANY of your comments, rebuttals, questions or related rebuttal links, completely unedited. 4-letter words will be replaced by astericks for each letter except for the first letter. Those wanting an orignal edition can request an e-mail copy. Since help is limited, it may take a few days before postings will appear depending on volume. Duplicate meanings will be deleted as space requires by seniority. Those who believe in Qur'an have nothing to fear from open discussion no matter how negative, since we believe that any whose heart is seeking and good will be lead to this straight path sooner or latter. Fear of open discussion betrays lack of faith. However, most Muslims believe it is wrong to debate those who just want to argue. For this reason we will not provide a comment to any statement, no matter how inaccuratly negative unless a questioner requests a response. After that initial response, anyone else has the last word, as we will not engage in endless rounds.
