In Recognition of America’s Contributions to Humanity

The Paradox of “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater)

These inhumane beings who chant “Allahu Akbar” as they slay and burn people alive, who blow up churches and homes, who sell and buy the people God created, who destroy cultures and history believing that they are elevating the god whom they worship, are just a few, misled and misleading who will not escape the judgement of God. A day will come when they will drink of the same cup they have served their victims, and, with the same measure they used for their victims, it will be measured to them, and much more.

It’s Like Talking About a Different Islam!

Tragically, the most profound answer to the Grand Imam of al-Azhar’s speech in Germany came less than a week later on Tuesday, March 22, when homegrown Islamic terrorists committed yet another of their heinous acts in Europe. This time it took place in Brussels, Belgium, the capital of the European Union and headquarters to NATO. I suggest that Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb return to the Reichstag where he delivered his speech before the Bundestag, and this time, offer an apology. Continue reading

The Distance between East and West

The core of the problem is that some of the minorities hold the belief that Western women are sexually loose and are easy to seduce. This way of thinking was expressed by a former Muslim Mufti of Australia, Sheik Tag El Din Al Helaly. Al Helaly once said that women who don’t wear the head scarf, hijab, become like uncovered meat and bring upon themselves the consequences of being attacked. Continue reading

Making Middle-East Oil Obsolete!

Recognizing that oil is a fungible commodity, the solution begins with the United States becoming self-sufficient and independent of Middle East oil supplies. This is not hard to achieve; it can be accomplished by relying on our own oil, along with advanced drilling technology known as fracking. In July of 2014, the Energy Information Administration, EIA, forecast U.S. oil imports could be reduced to zero by 2037. Continue reading

Gad and Arshad: A tale of two young men from two different worlds

What would happen if Gad and Arshad switched places? If Gad, the Coptic Christian, were to live and work in London, while Arshad, the Pakistani Muslim man, were to live and work in Upper Egypt? The question arises, would both experience the same problems and rewards as they do today? My answer is that they clearly would not, since it is the community with its values and ideals that makes all the difference. Continue reading

Why the Free World Must Ban Political Islam

The purpose of this article is not to look at the religious aspect of Islamic doctrine but rather at the political system, built within the Islamic religion, which wants to impose Sharia law that claims to be the only true representation of the religion.

Yes, We Are the Noon (N) People

Where is America led by President Obama? You, Mr. President, have surrounded yourself with advisors loyal to the International Muslim Brotherhood. You have spent billions of American tax-payer dollars to support them. You spoke strongly on their behalf every time you felt that their rights were in jeopardy. Why can’t we see you offer the same support to the Christians of Mosul? Noon is the Arabic letter that represents…

Egypt’s New Draft Constitution Raises Concerns Over Defining Islamic Sharia Law

A new Constitution for Egypt has just been drafted and sent to the interim president Adly Mansour for his approval before putting it to a popular referendum. A committee of fifty representing various factions of Egyptian society, as well as ten specialists in constitutional law, worked on the project that ultimately produced the final draft containing 247 articles. If approved, the 2013 Constitution would replace the 2012 Constitution known as the Brotherhood Pro- Islamic Constitution enacted during the rule of ousted President Mohammed Morsi (June 30, 2012 to July 3, 2013).
