There is a global financial crisis upon us. You're seeing rising food prices, collapsing currencies, and Muslims as scapegoats. Don't fall for it. Read DNN News for one Muslim's perspective. It's biased, but you know the bias. Filter as you wish.

Cynthia McKinney “Kidnapped” by Israeli Forces

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Pay special note to the comment about the difference between the corporate media response to the pirates in Somalia, the recent British-Iranian run-in, & this incident… very, very different responses.

A humanitarian aid ship which set sail for the Gaza strip has been seized by occupying Israeli forces today. The Israeli military abducted 21 human rights workers from 11 countries including former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and Noble laureate Mairead Maguire. The passengers and crew, though traveling in international waters, were forcibly dragged toward Israel.

Update: Cynthia McKinney has since been released… I wonder how much she’ll be allowed to say…

Boycotting Israeli Goods Having Effect

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

OK. With the amount of emails that I get swamped with every day, it is hard to really quantify what has value and what does not. I find myself increasing my filters for what I open and what I choose to delete. And, then of course, there are those emails that you open and find a list of recipients a mile long… The message has been cycled and recycled several times. With those, I usually click open and click delete almost in under one breath.

However, I might allow a certain type of email, or blog post, or Twitter tweet through my filters a little more frequently, now. And that is the boycott Israel email. This company supports them, that company is owned by a Zionist. I never know how much to trust the sources of those emails. The cynic in me imagines a corporate exec sitting in his penthouse office laughing at the Muslims for circulating untruths he started about his competitor… remember those La Muhammad emails about Coke? C’mon. Do you really believe that someone put that much thought into the logo?

Anyway, this is all one big, long-winded way of saying… good job. Jazakum Allahu khair. It appears that your/our efforts at boycotting Israeli goods and corporate sponsors is being felt. Here’s a link to someone named Tony Greenstein’s blog with words of encouragement:

==> Boycott of Israel is Starting to Bite <==

And here’s a link to an excerpt from Jews sans frontieres (an anti-Zionist blog):

==> Israeli economist (Shir Hever): boycotts beginning to bite <==

If this blog post is true, jazakum Allahu khair. If it is not true, jazakum Allahu khair. Either way, it’s all about your intentions to please Allah by doing your part to end suffering and injustice in the world – wherever it may be.
