Acts of Terrorism Very Rare Among US Muslims, Study Finds

Jerome Socolovsky, Voice of America.
We are delighted to publish  this article that the daily reference to : "Muslims of America are terrorists" has little to do with  facts. Socolovsky, has substantiated this by citing some relevant data.This is consistent with the article published 2 months ago- still displayed at the end  of  the present postings, under Obama's positive perception of American Muslims. Yes perception is what it is all about. As I stressed in the February article, there seems to be little factual basis, yet perc...

Meet The Global Muslim Peace Movement

, Lawyer, Speaker, Best-Selling Author of "EXTREMIST" Huffington Post Some 15 hours into my fast in the blistering Virginia heat my head hurt--but it wasn't a symptom of Ramadan. Rather, I found myself digesting The Times columnist David Aaronovitch's latest piece, "Moderate Muslims -- it's time to be outraged." Aaronovitch argues that, "there is no Islamic peace movement [because] followers are caught up feeling sorry for themselves as victims." He then proceeds with a laundry list of examples of extremism among Muslim...

Obama: Our Muslim population feel themselves to be American

M. Akhtar, Ph.D.

During the Q&A portion of a joint press briefing with British Prime Minister David Cameron, President Barack Obama suggested that when it comes to fighting radical Islam, the United States has a security advantage over Europe. It is not that our law enforcement or our intelligence services, etc., are so much better. It’s that our Muslim populations, they feel themselves to be Americans. President Obama is making a very powerful observation here that is infectiously positive and he gets our full commendation for it. For our reading it, however, let us rephrase it as: Muslims are becoming American and the law enforcement services should not take a prime credit for it. Beside Law...

Clash with Islamization?

Saleem Ahmed, Ph.D.

Summary Samuel Huntington’s 1993 essay “Clash of Civilizations?” foresaw cultural “fault lines” becoming battle lines, with Islam possibly emerging among dominating players. Defining “Islamization” as a belief among some Muslims that they should rule the world and implement the Shariah, this article lists some recent developments validating Huntington’s hypothesis and projects two global futures based on the current Shariah-driven trend, and an alternative future utilizing some “non-Shariah” inspirations. I believe a clash of the world with “Islamization” is underway exemplified by thirteen  violent international, national, and loc...

Monopolize the name of Allah?

Barkat Charania, MD.

How about monopolizing good deeds instead as a possible remedy of all our troubles in this world.

This is how I think it can work:

We should have every human being pledge something very simple. Regardless of our religious affiliation if all of us undertake to follow the teachings of “Ten Commandments” that are taught to us by our own religious heads, peers or parents, I believe we will have this world full of peace, compassion, tolerance and respect. This includes even the atheists, who do not believe in God as believers do, but they surely have a training of knowing the ...
