Missing in Action

Dear Readers,

I have received a few inquires regarding schools and such. I have been out of country for the past 12 days on spring break and I just got back today. Insha’Allah, I will try to catch up but if I can’t please give me fresh hollers.

Thanks,

A.

Pakistan holds first Republic Day parade in seven years

I am hoping that with Nawaz Sharif in place and with Imran Khan married (and his dharnas left behind), we will insha’Allah have a better future for Pakistan. Peshawar even looks cleaner so I am thinking that Reham Khan has finally convinced Imran to do something for his province. Anyway, read more about Pakistan Day (March 23rd) here.

Netanyahu: If I’m elected, there will be no Palestinian state – Israel election 2015 – Israel News | Haaretz

This just proves again that Netanyahu is a big fat liar. He will do and say anything to win elections and doesn’t have any morality at all. I am just hoping that none of his comrades in Hamas fire a phony rocket at Israel again. That’s his tactic to start aggression, just before elections, towards Palestinians to show how strong he is. ~AJ

What’s wrong with this picture?

The first time I saw it was when I was reading the Mehdi Hasan article on Loonwatch. But the image has really captivated my attention. It’s supposedly the ISIS captors taking the Egyptian Coptics for beheading. Can anyone notice what’s wrong with this image? The ISIS killers, accompanying the (supposed) Christians, are quite a few inches taller than them – all of them. They do not appear to have the same genetic makeup (the killers and the ones to be killed). Aren’t ISIS from the Middle East made up of Iraqis and Syrians? They appear very different in heights than the Egyptians which should not be the case. Who are these people in masks? Could this picture be a clue into their identity?

Jessey Eagan, a Christian woman, wears hijab for Lent

God bless Jessey Eagan for coming up with this idea and for practicing it.

For a better version, watch it on CNN over here. I couldn’t embed CNN’s version. Also visit Jessey’s blog to get a glimpse of her 40 days of journey. Jessey, I know you have disabled your comments, but if you read this – THANK YOU.

Thank you for spreading love

Thank you for standing up to bigotry

Thank you for teaching your kids love

Thank you for making this world a better place

Thank you for letting people like me know that we, as Muslims, are still accepted in the US

Thank you for giving us hope

Thank you for stopping hatred

Thank you for being you.

In Saudi Arabia, a Muslim Call to Prayer Inspires Jewish Prayer—in Private – Tablet Magazine

I found this to be an interesting read. I am amazed at the similarities between the Muslim and Jewish morning prayer. This article is from a year ago but now Saudi Labor Ministry has allowed Jews (not on Israeli passports) to work in the Kingdom. Mr. Shatkin would not have to hide his religion anymore on his visa application but, unfortunately, he would still have to pray at home, only. ~AJ

Why the US Is Sitting Out Tikrit ISIL Offensive | Al Jazeera America

Excellent news for the week. Masha’Allah and Alhumdulillah! I hope Shias and Sunnis unite and drive ISIL/ISIS/any-terrorist out of Iraq/Syria. As far as America taking a back role in helping the Iraqi/Irani forces in flushing out the terrorists, is it because there are Israeli-American advisors in the region helping out ISIL/ISIS? It’s nice to know that at least 4 of them were arrested. You won’t see that reported in the American media. Put their pictures and passports in the media so that no one can deny it.  ~AJ
