"Winning 'hearts and minds'

What the president failed to take into account was that with al-Qaeda, the struggle would never be just about terrorists or the willingness of states to confront them. Terrorists cannot long survive in societies which fundamentally reject them. If the US were actually to lead a global movement against terrorism, it would have to find a way to appeal to the many Muslims, including majorities in many countries, who then sympathised with al-Qaeda’s struggle, even as they rejected al-Qaeda’s tactics. It would have to find a way to respond to the young Pakistani Muslims in my own son’s grade school class, many of them from the most privileged families, whose reaction to 9/11 was to say “Now you know how it feels”. "

this guy got a piece of wat i'm tryn to say. you can read the whole paper here:

General Board / Re: Osama Bin Laden has Attained Matrydom!
« on: September 01, 2011, 04:03:22 PM »
Wow ??? :o I really am suprised by the number of people on his side. I am completely with Dave and IBB on this one. If Osama was a martyr for a cause, then certainly his methods are questionable and worse, even unacceptable in Islam. As a Muslim I cannot justify the means Osama uses to get his voice heard, i cant even remember his cause over the loud cries of the deaths he has caused and those that follow them.

I am well aware of the conspiracy theories and loose facts surrounding bin Laden and a host of other issues that date more than 2000 years, in other issues even in excess of 5000years. Yes I am a conspiracy theory junkie, but one has to be careful when going through them as most of these theories are more misleading than they are true, in fact they are very far from the truth rivers some of us believe them to be. Even in Sharia law which was written to protect integrity and justice, one cant throw accusations without proof, its even better a crime goes unpunished than to accuse an innocent. My point is, let the theories become facts, and they will be acted upon. if you believe they are true, prove them!

As A Muslim, I cannot condone his method regardless of his cause, there are other ways to go about it that does not contradict the teachings of Islam; Suicide, murder and mass murder does not cut it one bit. He may have been fighting people without ethics or religious guidance, but that doesn't excuse him as a Muslim. As Muslims we must obey God and the teachings of his religion, his prophets. I pray for his soul, for he is dead and he will be judged, I will not party to immortalise his life. He left my world in a far more broken state than he met it. And Allah knows best.

Abu-Fatima, lol :D its just a crazy world wo! Human rights are applied only when convenient....let me spell this out well

Mr Dave, I'm glad to see you are still well and doing. I do agree with you that Justice must not result to wickedness, or rather justice is not wickedness, for all acts of punishments are cruel one way or more others. Sept. 11 is not an Islamic act or one inspired by the faith. Its an act of wickedness and none of which is condoned in Islam.

The Muslim however is different from Islam. He is a practitioner of the faith in accord to its teachings and rules but a Muslim is not an absolute product. A Muslim is human, who errs and makes poor choices. He maybe guided by his faith but like all people of many faiths, chooses to obey those rules/guides. Chooses to sin or do right. Like all humans, Muslims also react to anger, grief, love, loss, pride, compassion, kindness, wickedness, justice and all more those states of mind.

So in Islam, all those killings are just as horrible as any one killing...but why do Muslims seem like a violent lot all of a sudden?

I will avoid the long history of the crusades and propagation of both the Islamic and Christian faiths as it's rather ambiguous and unrelated to the topic of human rights. But since the advent of the new world and the creation of Allied Nations or the UN and the birth of modern human rights. Hostility and aggression was not a character to describe Muslims. Modern day terrorism started in the Palestinian state after the WW2 in the '40s. With the many different terror groups that "liberated" Israel from the British. They killed many British soldiers in wicked bombings and ambushes, the same soldiers that came to help them "settle" with their ancient neighbours that have lived in "relative peace" for over 2000 years. The bombings of hotels and massacres of innocent and defenseless civilians and British soldiers, along side foreign Jewish "lobbyists" forced Britain out of the region and left the Palestinians to be overrun by the settlers. HUMAN RIGHT was watching...TERRORISM WON

Subsequently, global human rights also watched the big UN countries go into war with others just for having a different political philosophy with them, where countries lost their sovereignty and rights were abused and lives were destroyed. Sovereignty, rights and lives all initially acknowledged by the same UN. The terror morphed from that of individuals and groups to that of states and Nation states. These same states used politics, money, military aid and militancy to create more terror states of the likes of Iraq and Afghanistan. Terrorism won some more

All the while, though not all of it, but large number of Muslims worldwide and their countries were at the receiving end of this terror and thus created a lot of complex, disharmony and mistrust from the East against the West. The people from the West didn't bother as they didn't know what the people in the East were going through. And their governments give them the impression that they are making the rest of the world safe and better through enforcing democracy and human rights. In the East(or rest of the world) Human rights is only applicable were its convenient for the West or the powerful others. Such a perception can only build havoc for the future, something we are currently living to see.

Eventually, human rights(particularly rights of women) have been used as a political tool to justify wars including the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as Wiki leaks has disclosed. So what Husnaa is accusing the west of is "when an oppressed people for quite sometime react with aggression against the interests of the West, its against human rights despite the other many violations that the West did not raise an eye brow on" However when they react with aggression in the interest of the west like Libya now and Iraq of the Sadam revolutions in the 70's(or so) etc, they are freedom fighters that receive financial and military aid to free themselves ::)

Oh! when did Muslims become violent again? There are 1.5 Billion Muslims on God's good Earth. When the world is branding 1.5 billion people as terrorists. If the 17 killed 3500 on September 11th of 2001 were not acting on their own and Islam is truly a religion of Terror, and if at least 1% of Muslims are good Muslims, then 150 million terrorists are gonna try to complete what those negligible 17 started. Why no one tries to do the math and see that 99.99 percent of Muslims are not terrorists, that its not a coincidence why its so but that because the religion is actually what it said it is, a religion of peace. People get violent for many reasons, some are just bad people, some made poor choices, some made mistakes but violence always proves costly. Among the violence suffered globally, Muslims exclusively suffers that of silence and misrepresentation. Among all the violence suffered across the generation i quote a famous American saying in the '70s that"...the violence of silence is the worst of them all" (-either JFK or Martin Luther King Jr). A people suffer violence and like Jesus said, "those who live by the sword die by the sword" the violence is returned. It maybe unjustifiable in Islam but those people are also people. No one asked when those people were being killed or oppressed likewise, no one asked why 17 people performed the woeful deed of September 11th 2001. Rather, the wickedness of killing about 3500 people on that day was revenged with the wicked wars that killed hundreds of thousands. recently, a chopper carrying about 30 US elite marine forces was shot down. That is the largest single US casualty suffered since the war began. 3 days later, the military released a statement saying their deaths has been avenged...almost 200 people were killed in the process, are sure those who were responsible for the attack are dead. Talk about Wicked Punishment.

No one, community or religion that condones wickedness, but the Wicked has to be punished and its not by being nice at the expense of the victim. I don't condone any form of terrorism and my religion doesn't either. But one cant fight a people for having different philosophy and then one turns back home and commit the same offenses or those convenient to oneself. For instance, I don't care what your capital offenses are, but why should my capital offenses offend you? But its Human Rights :-\ :-X
The HYPOCRISY!!! :-X :-X

Honestly, most Muslims didn't know how to react to 9/11 attacks. They were confused. The unspeakable has happened. The fact was a terrible act has occurred, but there were used to seeing it on their streets or that of their brethren in faith, but not at the Heart of the West! Some were sad as even though there were Muslim casualties, the crime of killing people is very grave. Some though, well now we are not the only ones, good for them so they'd know the mess we are in here. Some thought this is WW3, whose side are we on? With the recent Oslo bombings and shootings(non-terror acts), its clear that the world is undergoing a clash of civilizations which at one point or the other, will eventually engulf us all. to the West, it Started on 9/11/2001, to many others...much much earlier.

Indeed as human rights should tally with common sense, I find the mail Husnaa received very interesting and funny at the same time. Wonder what people make of it? I do! :)

And oh! Jesus did preach compassion and brotherhood and pleaded for patience and forgiveness "turn the other chick" in human transactions. But when it comes to Law and justice is imminent, Jesus did say "he has not come to change or abolish the laws of Moses in anyway". That is what the bible said. If Christians will not follow the laws of Judaism isn't that against what Christ says?  ???

"Secondly in case you have forgotten, Christianity also advocates the an eye for an eye justice system. It is too unfortunate that many of today’s Christians seem to think they know better than God how to mete out justice for atrocities commited."

In my opinion, Neither party should be patient, instead each should try to be more patient than the other. marriage really is about compromises, but compromises can only be so much. One should not be in a marriage tat is continually at his/her detriment.

I say the man should try to be more patient than his wife, give her all that she requires/that he can, and even that little extra. He should forgive and look beyond thier lapses for a more successive marriage.

The wife should do the same. Give to your husband his right, and a bit more even, be patient, be kind, be forgiving for every other person you will live with require these, even your children.

But here is the tricky part. If one party keeps giving and the other party clearly does not make any effort to keep the marriage together, then its not worth it. Allah hates it, but permitted divorce for a reason.

So I say one should try like hell to make marriage work, but if not, one should get out whence it becomes unbearable. Patience is a good virtue to a tolerable point, but it becomes harmful after it, no one should have to endure that. Not even good old husband and wife.

Nicely said IBB (didnt think u had it in you lol)

I have never been more disappointed in Gaddafi, turns out he doesnt know what he is doing or rather, doesnt know what Nigeria is into.

Ngeria can never be split in anyway or direction, ethnically, religiously and whatever-ly, period.

Why? Well, we are more integrated than we like to admit, we share so much in common than we actually know. The 2 major religions everyone is shouting about are now everywhere and diverse from border to border through all cardinal points. Some Taqwa guys told me I'd be suprised the progress they've been making in the East. And I was also just reading complaints of the christain Majority Tafawa Balewa region who is asking for thier own Christain Emir to be appointes and recognised from Sokoto. However wierd it may be they do have n arguement

We are all corrupt, one region/party/religion/people did not curropt the other, we all musta had it in us to accept it so damn well. Our Music is already integrated, our lives are intertwined, and like IBB said, just the mere potential of everything else but the oil makes us giants...not just the oil. Someday we may wake up to a different source of major GDP, and its for all the diversity folks, the unity in diversity.

I dont even have to talk of pros and cons, we are one Nigeria, and no one can tera it appart.

Safety and Peace

an raina gwamnatin kano? well of course an raina ta mana!! Gwamnatin da kwamishinonin ta za su handame kudi wai sai gwamnaan yayi musu Allah Ya Isa kawai, how can u take it seriously?

lol lol lol, I cant stop laughing, wai Gov na musu Allah ya isa, lol.
Well, as it turns out in our simplicity we have begotten our biggest difficulty. We do not believe in this law of the state, we seldom carry it out. Kano is the only place in Nigeria ma dat u'll find a Layin Alfirma and a very legitimate one at that. By God we claim to be modest but we are least disciplined in our attitudes and action. This is the result.

Shouldnt we be talking solutions? Like Goggs said about the Achaba union, shouldn't we not take the fight to our people. Wai sai ache Kano baza ta taba gyaruwa ba, or there are some scumbags that wouldnt let it happen, are they up to a million? in a population of wat 10 million? tsk wannan abu da ban haushi yake

Fateez, Avatar is not about whiteman saving the natives, its a triumph against invaders and its a fantastic movie. A movie which television and all those involved with it can be proud of. I say regardless of the Oscars, its the best picture of the year and will only go down with the Lord of the rings to tie with. You should see it.
