Egypt: Sunni scholars sanction ‘electronic Jihad’

October 16, 2008

Attacking American and Israeli websites by hacking and sabotage is allowed under Islamic law and is a form of ‘Jihad’ or holy war, top Muslim scholars have decreed.

The religious edict (fatwa) issued by a committee from the highest authority in Sunni Islam, Egypt’s Al-Azhar University in Cairo, was published on the website of the Islamist Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood movement on Thursday.  >>>>>

This comes years after the West has used their electronic warfare against even something as innocent as Islamic charities.


Sharia law inevitable in Uganda’s legal system

October 15, 2008

In Britain, the common law system is available to everybody but to Muslims it is impotent when it comes to civil issues regarding marriage, divorce and other disputes whose dispensation in heaven is perceived as more crucial than any ruling that might be handed down by an English judge in a horsehair wig.

Ugandan Muslims have advocated Sharia law to deal with these importance issues because secular laws cannot address them to the satisfaction of our conscience. Therefore, Sharia law is inevitable in any community where Muslims are a part.  >>>>>

Is Drinking Shrinking Your Brain?

October 14, 2008

Brain volume naturally decreases by nearly 2 percent per decade as people age, but scientists had speculated that moderate alcohol intake could slow this process, by improving heart function and blood flow.

Prudent economics – “Replace capitalism with Islamic financial system,” says cleric

October 12, 2008

In response to: Replace capitalism with Islamic financial system: cleric

“The collapse of the capitalist system based on usury and paper and not on goods traded on the market is proof that it is in crisis and shows that Islamic economic philosophy is holding up,” said the Egyptian-born, Qatar-based cleric.

“The Western system has collapsed and we have a complete economic philosophy as well as spiritual strength,” he said at Sunday’s opening of a conference on Jerusalem. >>>>>

In an economic “system based on usury and paper and not on goods traded on the market” the borrower, (the average Westerner), is in a state of crisis from the signing of the contract.  The primary reason why many Western experts oppose this, is not because of the name Islam, but because Muslims are amongst the primary whistle-blowers about the inevitability of unjust economic enslavement of the average person.

Those who stand to benefit in a system that practices usury/interest are amongst the primary public-relations representative and co-conspirators of establishing a state of Islamophobia.

Take away the label of Islam, and deal with pure mathematics, logic, social conscience and justice — and the Islamic economic system is no doubt superior to capitalism and communism – put together.

Like the term ‘democracy,’ ‘capitalism’ is purported as great, but in practice is not even applied by the people who champion the cause.

Distorting the Meaning of Shariah

October 8, 2008

The tsunami of Islamophobia continues to roll in.  The article by Frosty Woolridge, ”America Must Never Succumb to Islam’s Shariah Law,” in today’s is perhaps the clearest distortion yet of Islamic law.  He supports Congressman Tancredo’s “Jihad Prevention Act … which would deny U.S. visas to advocates of ‘Shari’a’ law and expel Islamists already here.” >>>>>
