Brothers In Humanity

You know things are bad when Zionist Jews are defending the Principles of Islam against derogatory remarks made by some very ignorant people.

Big ups to the three guys (two Zionist Jews and a Christian) who pushed aside their religious differences and political agendas and came to the defense of a Muslim girl when she was being questioned about being a terrorist by some daft people (who also happened to be Christian).

These men.... (and one of them is such an asshole; not because he's a Jew, but because he's your regular everyday asshole and ticks all the boxes on the assholiness criteria)... anyways, these men defended Islam and Islamic principles, highlighting the overwhelming similarities between Judaism and Islam and the parallel's between Islam and Christianity too. They chastised and condemned the ignorance of the antagonising group and even went as far as stating that they too believe in Islam, its principles and its legitimacy as one of God's chosen religions.

It's one of those things that warms the cockles of my heart... one of those things that gives me hope in a cold cynical world... one of those rare things that make me truly proud to be South African. The notion that at the end of the day, we can all put aside our agendas, prejudices and differences, and use our humanity to stand up for what is right, for no other reason than it being the right thing to do.

I also believe that if we do the right thing as Muslims, our passivity and spiritual strength will prevail and this oppressor-ship will not last. We won't have to fight any wars because those Christians and Jews etc. who possess solid consciences, who know right from wrong, who are witnesses to the victimisation, will stand up and fight on our behalf. And then we'll have Zionist Jews defending Islam and Christians fighting other Christians on behalf of Islam as well. It's already happening. Now isn't that Ironic.

  1. Where exactly did this happen? (Forgive the ignorance - I haven't heard the story yet)

  2. dreamlife - It happened to my sister at her campus. It wasn't a huge thing or on the news or anything like that.

  3. THat is rather interesting - and heartwarming actually. The way some of our media (and by "our", I mean Muslim media) portray Zionists - it would make you think they're all evil, despicable creatures. Just goes to show how we shouldn't generalise.

    I went to school with a guy who, I think, was actively involved with the Jewish Board of Deputies. I had the impression he was also a Zionist, and into that whole scene.

    It turns out he's now an activist, working for Israel-Palestine peace - speaking out against the atrocities of the Zionists over there.

    Again, it goes to show that you can't stereotype people - or even judge them based on what your impressions are; because people's lives can take dramatic turns.

  4. This is a great story and definitely another reason to be proudly South African :)

  5. dreamlife - It's funny because I've always said that the Middle East crisis has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with politics, greed and power. And the more I think about it, the more it's apparent that this is more of a West vs. East issue... with the West seeking to control the East and their reserves (Oil) and they've cleverly made it about religion. If you continue reading in Muhammad Asad's book "Road to Mecca", you'll see he details how Britain tried to start a civil war in Arabia buy supplying the rebels with arms so that they could secure a railroad to Basra (their own political interests surrounding oil once again)... and this is very much the same issue. I don't believe that all Zionists commit evil atrocities (even though I still do not agree with the Zionist agenda). They too have been fed lies over generations. A couple of years ago, when we watched those settlers being forcibly removed under the new agreement we saw most of the young Jewish people crying / devastated because that was the land they were born in... it was all they knew for 38 years. They weren't the ones who started the occupation. Bottom line everyone is fighting a war that none of them have started... and each pays the price for what their ancestors did. And the Israeli's are taught from a very young age that it's their right. I know a girl who served in the Israeli Army and she said that most of the young Israeli's just follow orders blindly (or face imprisonment or death)... no one asks questions... they don't even know whats going on half the time! They don't even know what they're fighting for- the story / history behind it. It's really a very sad thing. My sister says the Illuminati are behind it :P

    sady - It is indeed. Thanks for visiting :)

  6. Your sister watched "The Arrivals"? Or is she just inclined towards conspiracy?

    Regardless - this is not the only case where hidden political agendas cause unecessary conflict and suffering. The way I see it, there's this human weakness that those in power sometimes fall into: that of greed and lust for more; which leads them to do injustice to others - sometimes on an unimaginable scale.

    But whatever they do in this world, and whatever they get away with - they must know that in the end, they won't get away. Justice - perfect justice - will be served. If not in this life, then in the one to come.

    It kind of makes you feel sorry for them - but you reap what you sow; so no one can feel hard done by when they have to face the consequences of their evils.

  7. Dreamlife - We haven't watched "The Arrivals" yet. My sister just believes that there is a group of people that rule the world lol.

    And definitely, most people in power fall to Greed and all the subsequent evils associated to that. To find a good, "clean", just ruler is almost impossible. And this modern day world lacking basic morals makes it even tougher.

    But yeah, we read what we sow. Thats the truth.
