Ramzi Qassem: Do High-Profile Terrorism Arrests Actually Help the Islamic State?
"After all, what better publicity could an ambitious-if brutal-political startup like the Islamic State pray for than being mentioned by the most powerful man on the planet, President Barack Obama?"... "But the frequency of public expressions of concern by high-level government officials and the stridency of their warnings bear little relation to the actual scope and gravity of the threat" More.
Sarah Sayeed, a Woman Who's Making a Difference
"Islam is not a strange religion," declares Dr. Sarah Sayeed, Director of Community Partnerships at the Interfaith Center of New York. "Its values and teachings are fully consonant with the Abrahamic traditions of Christianity and Judaism-and with Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, too. All of these religions share a lot of common ground. More.

Islamophobia Is Evil But It Somehow Worked For Islam, Muslim Americans & America 


  Contrary to what Islamophobes and bigots expected from their toxic hatred towards Islam, their evil actions and rhetoric triggered the American public conscience in favor of Islam and Muslim Americans. While hater Robert Doggart was planning to blow up Islamberg's mosque and school, he had a "sniper-strategy" plan to prevent public support of and sympathy for his Muslim victims. Meanwhile, when hater Jon Ritzheimer horrified Phoenix Muslim community with an armed rally he was faced with an abrupt public counterrally mainly of fellow Christians calling for loving "thy neighbor". This is the great America that ought to and will always prevail.

However, Islamophobia and its campaign of hate rallies and advertisements are not merely immoral, defaming (Q. 49:11) and/or dehumanizing of Muslims. They are an imminent threat to national security as they support violent extremists' narrative that the United States is at war with Islam and incites violence against American targets nationally and abroad. They are an imminent threat to public safety where Muslim American worshipers can be terrorized and forced to practice their religious rights while engulfed by armed "protesters". They are an imminent threat to freedom of expression where authorities have to "ban it all" to prevent evil exploitation of constitutional terminology of "free speech". Finally, they are a threat to American moral values, civility, aesthetic and power of diversity (Q. 49:13) and tolerance (Q. 2:256).

Therefore, all American people of conscience should work hand in hand to fight, curtail and or contain Islamophobia; not only to stop the ongoing dehumanization of Muslims in order to set the stage for their scapegoating and then their cleansing; but also to prevent another community from facing the same fate as happened to many communities in recent history.

While the Few Obsessive Compulsive Islamophobs Try to Portray Islam as Our Enemy, Muslim Americans Are in Front Lines Reporting to Duty
Happy Memorial Day to All

magine how hard is it to tell one of these soldiers that his mom, his wife, his daughter or any of his parents, relatives or friends was attacked, assaulted or discriminated against "at home", by one of those Islamophob haters, and the only reason is her/his attire (hijab, dress...), her/his appearance or her/his mere faith of Islam?!
Islamic Leadership Council (Majlis Ashura) of NY Invites IRUSA to Supporting Muslim New Yorkers
  On May 14, 2015, Majlis Ashura held House of Representatives and made important decision in preparation for the holy Ramadan and issues. Meanwhile, the 19 Imams and community leaders that attended the meeting explored with Islamic Relief of America opportunities for providing Muslim New Yorkers with some of its national and local financial support. IRUSA spends millions of dollars every year overseas on humanitarian bases. After rising calls for bringing their help rather home, IRUSA decided to earmark some of its generous relief in the benefit of American community development and Americans victims of human and natural catastrophes. The Majlis will partner with IRUSA in order to facilitate and at times lead our communities access to such support.
