inconveniences of a marriage of convenience - part III

[part I, part II]

so, where does islam come into the picture?

well, after 200 yrs of hibernation, twentieth century witnessed the awakening of islam. organizations like muslim brotherhood and jamate-islami have taken political islam to newer heights as evident by the huge success of islamists all over the muslim world.
islam is not merely a religion, but a way of life, and it calls for respect, equality and justice for all. thus islamists rising to power in the middle east would bring an end to the puppet-leaders and the illegitimate privilege imperialist forces enjoy.
similarly a self reliant middle east will surely make things much harder for israels 'holy land' policy, considering the fact that despite having the strongest military power in middle east, israel is far well out-sized and out numbered.

and where does the solution lie?

i would say first of all we need a coalition against war. we need an alliance of all peace loving people around the world, an alliance of civilization and culture. an alliance of humanity.
one of the main reasons behind the aggression to continue is people's ignorance. this must be fought. those who knows and who thinks should do all they can to bring forward the facts. to educate people, and to highlight the threat 'war on terror' poses to humanity itself.
as for the muslims, i think we need to get back to our roots, to our deen. history tells us that never have humanity in general and the ummah in particular suffered so much, as long as muslims held the quran and the sunnah superior to everything else.
(being a muslim, i can only talk for them... but i believe if we all give god a little more importance in our hearts, things would be much much different)

Hi bodda,

I share your wish for a "coalition against war. we need an alliance of all peace loving people around the world, an alliance of civilization and culture. an alliance of humanity".

I want that coalition to be called the UN, but of course not in its current form. With radical reform, including of course the abolishment of the veto, it is certainly possible to push the UN one step along the road to the dream.

It will have to be dragged kicking and screaming all the way though, since of course the current status quo is extremely beneficial for the powerful countries, who will do everything they can to keep it that way.

Good posts.

But how can this be done with so much hate out there? How can people forget the things that'd happenned to them?

I hate to admit it but it seems to me the world could use a couple of mohatma gandis now - who'd turn the other chick after bein hit on one. But people like the Mohatma or Steive Biko is not the type thats idolized now. But thats no way to talk. May be even blogs like this can make a difference.

Many of us are doing all we can to end this war on terror nonsense. We here in U.S. are strapped with an idiot for a "leader" who was elected by appealing to our version of radical Islam, that being the fundamentalist Christians who think that they should determine everyone elses beliefs.
Hope we can one day get together and surpass the beliefs of those wishing only power.

I am saddened. I am struck. How on EARTH did our greed and cruelty escelate to what we see today? Beirut, Baghdad, Palestine and so many other places in the world are being ripped apart by choices we have made.

And all must love the human form,
In heathen, turk, or jew;
Where Mercy, Love, & Pity dwell
There God is dwelling too
