  1. Pentagon Covering Up Tens of Thousands of U.S. Casualties In Official Reports (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_thinkprogress(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2005/12/10/casualty-cover-up/"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_thinkprogress(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2005/12/10/casualty-cover-up/[/url] Seven Members of Congress issued a letter this week charging that the Pentagon is systematically “under-reporting casualties in Iraq by only reporting non-fatal casualties incurred in combat.” They asked for a full accounting of the accurate numbers. Their letter cited a CBS News report: The Pentagon declined to be interviewed, instead sending a letter that contained information not included in published casualty reports. “More than 15,000 troops with so-called ‘non-battle’ injuries and diseases have been evacuated from Iraq,” wrote the Department of Defense. John Pike, Director of GlobalSecurity(contact admin if its a beneficial link) told 60 Minutes in that segment that this uncounted casualty figure “would have to be somewhere in the ballpark of over 20, maybe 30,000.” But that CBS report came in November 2004. Today, more than a year later, those numbers have risen significantly. This morning, Salon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) published details of an October ‘05 Veterans Affairs report showing that 119,247 off-duty Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are receiving health care from the V.A. [T]he statistics seem to show that a lot of those health problems are war-related. For example, nearly 37,000 have mental disorders, including nearly 16,000 who have been diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder. Over 46,000 veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan receiving benefits from the V.A. have musculoskeletal problems. These are all veterans who within the last four years were considered by the military to be mentally and physically fit enough to fight. These men and women have suffered injuries that will impact them for the rest of their lives. The Bush calculation: better to have higher Iraq approval numbers than recognize their sacrifices.
  2. Muslims Of Gujarat-india

    According to the Human Right reports, Hindus are persecuting and terrorizing Muslims and Christians in India. In the Gujerat , the Hindus terrorists who were supported by Hindu policemen and the state government had mercilessly massacred thousands of innocent and defenseless Muslim infants, babies, toddlers, children, women, elderly people , unarmed men etc in cold blood. In Kasmir, we see the Indian soldiers and policemen terrorizing, torturing, raping, murdering and massacring innocent and defenseless Muslims because Kashmir is a Muslim nation !

Moore is a Professor Emeritus, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto. Distinguished embryologist and the author of several medical textbooks, including Clinically Oriented Anatomy (3rd Edition) and The Developing Human (5th Edition, with T.V.N. Persaud). Dr. Moore was a former President of the Canadian Association of Anatomists, and of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists. He was honoured by the Canadian Association of Anatomists with the prestigious J.C.B. Grant Award and in 1994 he received the Honoured Member Award of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists "for outstanding contributions to the field of clinical anatomy." "For the past three years, I have worked with the Embryology Committee of King cAbdulazîz University in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, helping them to interpret the many statements in the Qur'ân and Sunnah referring to human reproduction and prenatal development. At first I was astonished by the accuracy of the statements that were recorded in the 7th century AD, before the science of embryology was established. Although I was aware of the glorious history of Muslim scientists in the 10th century AD, and some of their contributions to Medicine, I knew nothing about the religious facts and beliefs contained in the Qur'ân and Sunnah."[2] At a conference in Cairo he presented a research paper and stated: "It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the Qur'ân about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God, or Allah." [1] Professor Moore also stated that: "...Because the staging of human embryos is complex, owing to the continuous process of change during development, it is proposed that a new system of classification could be developed using the terms mentioned in the Qur'ân and Sunnah. The proposed system is simple, comprehensive, and conforms with present embryological knowledge. "The intensive studies of the Qur'ân and Hadîth in the last four years have revealed a system of classifying human embryos that is amazing since it was recorded in the seventh century A.D... the descriptions in the Qur'ân cannot be based on scientific knowledge in the seventh century..."[1] Bibliography [1] Zindanî, cAbdul-Majeed A, This is the Truth (video tape).

  4. The American War Crimes In Iraq

    US soldiers kill 22 in attack on Baghdad Masjid From Patrick ####burn in Arbil Published: 27 March 2006 US forces killed 22 people and wounded eight at a Masjid in east Baghdad in an incident likely to lead to increased tensions with the Shia community. Police said the US troops had retaliated after coming under fire. Videotape showed a heap of male bodies with gunshot wounds on the floor of the Imam's living quarters in what was said to be the Al Mustafa Masjid. There were 5.56mm shell casings on the floor, which is the type of ammunition used by US soldiers. A weeping man in white Arab robes is shown stepping among the bodies. Police Lt Hassan said some of the casualties were at the office Dawa, the party of the Prime Minister, Ibrahim al-Jaafari. Haidar al-Obaidi, a senior Dawa official, said: "The lives of Iraqis are not cheap. If the American blood is valuable to them, the Iraqi blood is valuable to us." The US military would neither confirm not deny the incident but the US army in Iraq has been strongly criticised over the past week for killing Iraqi civilians and falsely claiming that they were insurgents or caught in cross fire.

  5. Taliban

    MY COMMENT: The US regime has been terrorizing and massacring millions of innocent people all over the World since the day the US regime and its brutal US soldiers terrorized, raped, tortured, and massacred the innocent and defenseless native people of USA. The US regime has terrorized and massacred millions of innocent people in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Panama, Grenada, Haiti, Nicaragua etc. The 9-11 is just another US pretext invented by the US regime and Zionists to terrorize the World.
  6. Ishmael Or Isaac?

    Further Evidence From Hadîth Literature The following says: Some reports and traditions from the Companions and Followers state that the Sacrificed is Ishmael(P). Narrated by al-Hâkim in Al-Mustadrak, and Ibn Jarîr [at-Tabarî] in his commentary with its isnâd, and others that cAbdullâh Ibn Sacîd al-Sâbihy said: "We were at Mu'âwiyah's reception and the people started discussing [the story of] Ishmael and Isaac(P) and which one was the sacrificed. Some said Ishmael and some said Isaac(P). Mu'âwiyah said: I am the expert you need; We were at the Prophet's(P) when a bedouin came to him saying "O Prophet of God, I have left the pasture dry and the life hard, the children died and the wealth is gone, so give me [something] of what God has bestowed on you, O Son of the two sacrificed." The Prophet(P) smiled and did not blame/criticize what he said. The people asked: Who are the two sacrificed O Commander of the believers? He replied: When cAbdul Muttalib was ordered to dig Zamzam he vowed to sacrifice one of his sons if God helps him with his mission [i.e., Zamzam]. When he achieved the mission, he cast lots on his children, there were ten of them. The choice fell on cAbdullâh so he decided to sacrifice him but the child's uncles, Banu Makhzûm, opposed the sacrifice and said satisfy your Lord and ransom your son. So, he ransomed him with a hundred camels. Mu'âwiyah said: this is one [of the two Sacrificed] the other is Ishmael(P)." This report is regarded as Marfuc.[6] There is another report according to which the Prophet(P) is believed to have said: "I am the son of the two Sacrificed". The authenticity of this report is very controversial so we will not use it as evidence especially when the above report is correct enough and suffices to our study. Conclusion According to the Qur'ân, the sacrificed cannot be Isaac(P). According to authentic Islamic tradition, the sacrificed is Ishmael(P). The Muslim scholars have solved this case a long time ago and, very early in the history of Islam, the popular Islamic tradition has integrated the fact that Ishmael(P) was the sacrificed.

  7. Ishmael Or Isaac?

    The Opinion Of Judeo-Christian Scholars & Islamic Viewpoint The Encyclopaedia Judaica says: In the tale of binding (surah 37:99-110) Muhammad identified the son who was to be sacrificed as Ishmael and, indeed, the opinion of the traditionalists were also divided on this subject. It is related that a renowned traditionalist of Jewish origin, from the Qurayza tribe, and another Jewish scholar, who converted to Islam, told that Caliph Omar Ibn cAbd al-cAzîz (717-20) that the Jews were well informed that Ismail was the one who was bound, but that they concealed this out of jealousy. The Muslim legend also adds details of Hajar (Hagar), the mother of Ismail. After Abraham drove her and her son out, she wandered between the hills of al-Safa and al-Marwa (in the vicinity of Mecca) in search for water. At that time the waters of the spring Zemzem began to flow. Her acts became the basis for the hallowed custom of Muslims during the Hajj.[4] The testimony of the former Jew as mentioned hadîth literature as quoted in the Encyclopaedia Judaica reads: Another proof of our speech [i.e., that sacrificed was Ishmael(P)] is reported by Ibn Ishâq: "Muhammad Ibn Ka'b narrated that cUmar Ibn cAbd al-cAzîz sent for a man who had been a Jew then converted to Islam and showed signs of true Islam. [before his conversion], he was one of their scholars [i.e., he was a Jewish scholar] So he [i.e., cUmar] asked him: which son did Abraham(P) sacrifice? He replied: 'It is Ishmael(P). By God, O Commander of the Believers, the Jews know that but they envy you - the Arabs.'[5] The Oxford Companion To The Bible echoes the same position as the Encyclopaedia Judaica. In Muslim tradition, the Arabs trace their ancestry back to Abraham through Ishmael. Because Ishmael was circumcised (Gen. 17:25), so are most Muslims. And, analogous to Paul's reversal of the figures of Isaac and Ishmael (Gal. 4:24-26), Muslim tradition makes Ishmael rather than Isaac the son Abraham was commanded to sacrifice.[6] It is quite clear from the statement of Judeo-Christian scholars what the Muslim position is about the person who was sacrificed by Abraham(P).

  8. Ishmael Or Isaac?

    The Opinion Of Ibn Kathîr regarding the Quranic verse 37:101 "So We gave him the good news of a forbearing son". And this son is Ishmael(P) for he is the first son whose good news was brought to Abraham(P). He is older than Isaac according to Muslims and ahl al-kitâb (i.e., the People of the Book) too. It is even said in their Scripture that Ishmael(P) was born when Abraham(P) was 86 years old and Isaac(P) was born when Abraham(P) was 99. In their Scripture as well, God is said to have ordered Abraham(P) to sacrifice his only son and in another version his firstborn. And, at this spot, they inserted falsely the name of Isaac(P) against the text of their very Scripture. The reason they inserted Isaac(P) is that he is their father whereas Ishmael(P) is the father of the Arabs. They added Isaac(P) out of envy and brushed away "only son" by saying that Ishmael(P) and his mother had already been to Makkah. This is a mere [farfetched] explanation since we never say "only son" except to a person who hasn't got but one son. Moreover, the firstborn has got a special place [in the heart of his father] that is not given to the following children and the order to sacrifice him is therefore a greater test. Some knowledgeable people were inclined to say that the sacrificed was Isaac(P). This was reported from some people of the salaf (i.e. people of the previous generations) and it was even reported from some Companions® but [this opinion] does not have any bearings from the Book [i.e., the Qur'ân] nor from the Sunnah. I think such opinion was received from the Rabbis of ahl al-Kitâb as is without evidence. Moreover, God's Book is a witness and points to the fact that it is Ishmael(P) because the glad tiding said that the son was patient and that he is the sacrificed. Only afterwards, He said: "And We gave him the good news of Isaac - a prophet,- one of the Righteous." and when the Angels brought the good news of Isaac(P) to Abraham(P) they said: " "Fear not," and they gave him glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge." And the Most High said: " We gave her [sarah] glad tidings of Isaac, and after him, of Jacob." [11:71] meaning that in the lifetime of Abraham(P) and Sarah(P), Isaac(P) will beget a child that he will call Jacob(P) implying that Isaac(P) will have a progeny. We have already explained why it is not possible that Isaac(P) be sacrificed while still a child i.e., because God promised them [Abraham and Sarah] that he will have a progeny. On the other hand, Ishmael(P) was described as forbearing and he fits that description. [Note that many commentators including Ibn Kathîr believe that "forbearing" does not fit a child, it can at least describe teenagers for they are old enough to be described as such.] In a nutshell, the great Qur'ânic commentator Ibn Kathîr adds to our first three arguments two new ones: according to the Bible, the sacrificed is said to be Abraham's(P) only son (or his firstborn in some versions), which cannot fit Isaac(P); according to the Qur'ân, the good news of Isaac(P) said that he would have a progeny and consequently God cannot order Abraham(P) to sacrifice Isaac(P) before the promise is fulfilled. Again, according to the Qur'ân, the sacrificed cannot be Isaac.

  9. Us Catholic Sex Scandal

    Sex abuse spans spectrum of churches By Mark Clayton | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor Despite headlines focusing on the priest pedophile problem in the Roman Catholic Church, most American churches being hit with child sexual-abuse allegations are Protestant. These are findings from national surveys by Christian Ministry Resources (CMR), a tax and legal-advice publisher serving more than 75,000 congregations and 1,000 denominational agencies nationwide. CMR's annual surveys of about 1,000 churches nationwide have asked about sexual abuse since 1993. They're a remarkable window on a problem that lurked largely in the shadows of public awareness until the Catholic scandals arose. The surveys suggest that over the past decade, the pace of child-abuse allegations against American churches has averaged 70 a week. The surveys registered a slight downward trend in reported abuse starting in 1997, possibly a result of the introduction of preventive measures by churches. "I think the CMR numbers are striking, yet quite reasonable," says Anson Shupe, anIndiana University professor who's written books about church abuse. "To me it says Protestants are less reluctant to come forward because they don't put their clergy on as high a pedestal as Catholics do with their priests." At least 70 incidents a week Dr. Shupe suggests the 70 allegations-per-week figure actually could be higher, because underreporting is common. He discovered this in 1998 while going door to door in Dallas-Ft. Worth communities where he asked 1,607 families if they'd experienced abuse from those within their church. Nearly 4 percent said they had been victims of sexual abuse by clergy. Child sexual abuse was part of that, but not broken out, he says. James Cobble, executive director of CMR, who oversees the survey, says the data show that child sex-abuse happens broadly across all denominations.

    MY COMMENT: We are intelligent human beings and we know that it is the US regime that cause civil wars in Afghanistan. And it is the US regime that commit all the war crimes in Afghanistan. We have proofs that show the US regime, CIA and the US Armed Forces have committed war crimes against humanity in Afghanistan. "Our US leaders are cruel because only those willing to be inordinately cruel and remorseless can hold positions of leadership in the foreign policy establishment. People capable of expressing a full human measure of compassion and empathy toward faraway powerless strangers do not become president of the United States, or vice president, or secretary of state, or national security adviser or secretary of the treasury. Nor do they want to." William Blum

    MY COMMENT: You are avoiding my questions ! Why don't you answer all the questions instead of twisting my questions? Oh now you think it is ok for the US regime to terrorize, rape, torture, murder and massacre millions of innocent and defenseless civilians who had nothing to do with the 9-11 and atatck and destroy civilian targets in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia etc. You mean the US regime can attack and destroy your home and rape, torture and massacre your family just because it thinks that one of your neighbours is a terrorist !That is truly strange reasoning. Although it seems to be the reasoning the US regime and Zionists used. Is that what Bush, Sharon, Olmert, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao Tze Dong have been teaching you since the day you was born?

  15. Us Catholic Sex Scandal

    MY COMMENT: 1) Oh you mean that the church scandals have been happening for several decades now. That means the churches have failed to overcome the serious problems. Why? 2) I dare you to prove it. Please give me concrete evidence to support your allegation. 3) Oh my God ! The church scandals have happened for centuries but no-one dared speak ill of the church according to you. I think it is you who are parochial about it. Don't you know that it has become general or wider issues ? It has become top news all over the World! Churches and priests are being sued for church sex scandals by their followers etc. Even the Christian Science Monitor admit that church sex scandals happen in all churches of various Christian sects.

  17. The American War Crimes In Iraq

    NEWS YOU WON'T FIND ON CNN US soldier described rape and murders, Iraq hearing told By AFP 08/07/06 -- - BAGHDAD (AFP) -- A US military investigator has said that a soldier had confessed to him that he and a comrade had sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Iraqi girl before another suspect raped her and killed her family. Testifying at a hearing that will decide whether to charge five servicemen with rape and murder, Special Agent Benjamin Bierce said 23-year-old Specialist James Barker had given a detailed account of the alleged rape and massacre. According to Barker's sworn written statement, which was given to the probe panel, on March 12 soldiers had been drinking Iraqi whisky mixed with an energy drink and practising golf swings at a checkpoint south of Baghdad. One of the men, 20-year-old Specialist Steven Green, said that he "wanted to go to a house and kill some Iraqis", the statement said on Monday. Four of the accused -- Barker, Sergeant Paul Cortez, Private Bryan Howard, Private Jesse Spielman -- agreed with Green's plan, changed into black silk underwear and masks and set off for the family's nearby home, it said. A fifth soldier, 22-year-old Anthony Yribe, could face charges for failing to report what he later found out about the killings. He refused to testify Monday on the grounds that he could incriminate himself. Green has been discharged from the army because of a "personality disorder" and has been charged separately with rape and murder in a civilian court. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and his trial is pending. The other accused could face penalties up to and including death penalty if this week's Article 32 military hearing at a US base at Baghdad airport decides that they should face court martial. According to Bierce's account of Barker's confession, Howard remained outside the selected Iraqi home with a radio to act as lookout, while the others herded a family of four inside. Barker wrote that Cortez pushed the 14-year-old to the floor. He threw her dress up over her waist and tore her underwear away. The girl tried to put her knees together and struggled with the soldiers, he wrote. Cortez and Barker attempted to rape the girl in turn. Barker "said in his statement he was having problems getting an erection and that he wasn't sure if he penetrated her", Bierce told the tribunal. Special Agent Gary Griesmyer, who also testified Monday, said he questioned Cortez who confirmed how they changed their clothing and covered their faces to look like insurgents. Griesmyer said Cortez confirmed that he held the girl down as Barker raped her. The weeping child pleaded to be set free, but Barker told her to "shut up" after the rape, Cortez said, according to Griesmyer. Meanwhile, Green took the girl's parents and five-year-old sister into another room. Shots rang out and he came back, saying "They're all dead. I just killed them," the hearing heard. Green took his turn to rape the girl, then shot her dead with a captured AK-47 assault rifle. Kerosene was poured over the girl and someone -- it was not clear who -- set her alight, Bierce said, citing Barker's testimony. Barker's account did not implicate Howard or Spielman in the rapes or the murder, but he testified that they had taken part in the break-in and had cooperated in the burning of the house and of their clothes. Another witness Special Agent Michael Hood, trained in administering polygraphy tests, confirmed that Spielman had passed the tests when asked whether he participated in the gruesome massacre. After the murders, the troops returned to their checkpoint 200 metres away and "grilled chicken wings", the statement said. Another witness, Private Justin Watt, described how he had pieced together what had happened from conversations with the accused in his unit, the 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. "I feared for my safety at the TCP (traffic control point)," Watt told the hearing, describing his fear of retribution within his unit. "It's like this, I find out that guys in my squad, guys I trusted with my life, are allegedly responsible for one of the most brutal rapes slash murders I've ever seen. And everyone has a weapon and grenades," he said. "There's nothing I've read that says what to do if your buddies have raped and murdered a family," he added. Under defence cross-examination, Watt also told of how the unit had become demoralised and stressed after several fatal attacks on their exposed position by Iraqi insurgents. "I was going to get a memorial tattoo of all the guys (who were killed), but there's not enough room on my arm," Watt said. The allegations came to light when stress counsellors talked to the squad after an incident in which two soldiers were abducted at a checkpoint south of Baghdad and later brutally murdered. The hearings continue.

    Witness describes scene of horror in Iraq rape case 08/06/2006 The medic said that when he entered the house, he found the 14-year-old girl naked with her legs spread and burned from the waist up, with a single bullet wound beneath her left eye. An Iraqi army medic described a scene of horror to a U.S. military hearing on Sunday that will decide if four U.S. soldiers are to be court-martialled for the murder and rape of an Iraqi girl and the killing of her family. The medic, who was not named, said that when he entered the house in Mahmudiya in March, he found 14-year-old Abeer Qasim Hamza al-Janabi naked with her legs spread and burned from the waist up, with a single bullet wound beneath her left eye. He also told the hearings he had found her six-year-old sister in an adjacent room with the back of her head blown out, and the bodies of both parents riddled with bullets. The Mahmudiya case, the fifth involving serious crimes being investigated by the U.S. military in Iraq, has outraged Iraqis and led Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to call for a review of foreign troops' immunity from Iraqi prosecution. The court heard testimony from three Iraqi witnesses on Sunday, the first day of proceedings. But the media covering the event were only allowed to record the comments of the medic, who said he was ill for weeks after witnessing the crime scene. Military prosecutors are expected to lay out their case against Private First Class Jesse Spielman, Specialist James Barker, Sergeant Paul Cortez and Private First Class Bryan Howard, who face charges of rape and murder among others. If court-martialled and found guilty they could face the death penalty.

  19. The American War Crimes In Iraq

    8 Marines charged in Iraqi civilian massacre Four charged with murder in Haditha incident that left 24 dead Associated Press Updated: 3:38 p.m. PT Dec 21, 2006 CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Eight Marines were charged Thursday in the killings of 24 Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha last year. Four Marines were charged with murder in the biggest U.S. criminal case involving civilian deaths to arise from the war in Iraq. The other four charged were officers who were not there but were accused of failures in investigating and reporting the deaths, the Marine Corps said. A squad leader was charged with murdering 12 people and ordering other Marines to murder six people in the hours after a roadside bomb killed one Marine and injured two others. The squad leader, Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, 26, was charged with unpremeditated murder of 18 Iraqi civilians, including six people inside a house members of his squad cleared with deadly force. Wuterich also was charged with one count each of making a false official statement and soliciting another sergeant to make false official statements. Sgt. Sanick P. Dela Cruz was accused of the unpremeditated murders of five people and making a false official statement with intent to deceive. Lance Cpl. Justin Sharratt was accused of the unpremeditated murder of three Iraqis. Lance Cpl. Stephen Tatum charged with the unpremeditated murders of two Iraqis, negligent homicide of four Iraqi civilians and a charge of assault upon two Iraqis. The highest ranking defendant, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, was accused of failing to obey an order or regulation, encompassing dereliction of duty. The other officers charged were 1st Lt. Andrew Grayson, Capt. Lucas McConnell and Capt. Randy Stone. The Marines all belonged to Kilo Company of the Camp Pendleton-based 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines Regiment, and have been under investigation since March for the deaths. Chain of command problems? A parallel military investigation examined whether officers in the Marines’ chain of command tried to cover up the events. Results of that probe have not been made public. As word that charges in the case were imminent, some Iraqis said Thursday that American troops should face justice in Iraq. “The trial they are talking about is fake. The American troops should be brought here, in front of an Iraqi court,” Naji al-Ani, a 36-year-old laborer, said by telephone from Haditha. “They committed a horrible crime against innocents.” Other residents of Haditha agreed, saying they believed the servicemen were guilty and should face the death penalty. “Are they terrorists or are they fighting terrorism?” said Jamal al-Obaidi, a 40-year-old teacher. “The trial is not fair because it is taking place in America. Executing them is the minimum penalty.” Source : (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetmsnbc.msn(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/id/12342625"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetmsnbc.msn(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/id/12342625[/url]

Many children had to watch their parents being shot to death in front of them, or men who had to watch their children and their wives being killed." Report on the current situation in the city of Fallujah Presented to the 61st session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights For the period of 1 January to 25th March 2005 Studies Center of Human Rights and Democracy BRussells Tribunal The city of Fallujah was subjected to a genocide war by the American forces. The military machinery destroyed almost 70 per cent of the city, from civilian houses to medical center and general services facilities especially water, electricity. This war resulted in killing thousands of innocent civilians and sending almost a half million refugee. It is well known that the American forces and their puppet government prevented any medical or humanitarian relief agency to enter the city throughout its siege to the city. Since the beginning of this year, the citizens are increasingly returning to the city, driven by the very bad living conditions in the places where they took refuge and the will to try the reconstruction of their houses and shops. Except for the few who found their houses still standing, the majority lived on the ruins whether by using tents or other means. In this bad living condition, the American occupation forces continue to commit grave violations to the basics principles of human rights and international law. In order to give the international community a clear image of what is happening, we present this short report: 1 - Following the two reports that our center issued in mid January 2005 and the other facts that came to the knowledge of the UN, the human rights office of UNAMI and the Iraq office of WHO have – in two occasion- officially requested to enter the city of Fallujah in order to examine the situation there but the American occupation authority did not respond to these requests until now on the pretext of the dangerous security situation. Here we must ask, if the security situation is still dangerous, then how are families and children allowed to return to the city? Are the lives of the UN officials more precious than those of the Fallujah citizens? Or is it that there are crimes that the international bodies are not allowed to examine. 2 - The citizens of Fallujah are suffering of many sorts of humiliations when entering or leaving the city. In their daily life, they go through many sorts of harassments and threats by the American occupation forces which consider them as terrorists simply because they refuse the occupation. Not to mention the continuous random killing in all part of the city that does not exclude children or elder people, men or women. In a dangerous step of racism and freedoms limiting, the American occupation authority issued special ID cards for the citizens of Fallujah, preventing visitors from other cities to enter it. This step isolates the city Fallujah from its surroundings and the rest of the country and so turning it into a huge prison. 3 - Until the issuing of this report the effort to find the corpses of the victims of November 2004 comprehensive attack on the city still going on. The specialized burier teams have found about 700 corpses and we definitely think that the number of martyrs is greater than that. The American occupation forces itself announced that they have killed about 1300 individuals but no one knows where those bodies were buried. This assures that there are mass graves in the city, the American continual refusing to allow the UN representatives to enter the city, confirm this assessment. Furthermore, the medical authorities and the citizens could not find the burial ground of 450 bodies of the citizens of Fallujah that the American occupation forces have photographed and buried in a place that is still unknown. 4 - There are hundreds of missing personnel from Fallujah, but afraid of arrest and intimidation by the American forces, the families still hesitate to register the names of their missing with the official committee for registering the missing. That is why the registered number is less than the actual one. 5- The detainees from the Fallujah citizens are suffering of inhuman and bad treatment in both Abu Graib and Basra prisons. There is no reason behind keeping those detainees in the prisons. Unfortunately, there is no legal or official Iraqi authority that handles the issue of those detainees, it left to two Masjid in the city. 6- As a measure of collective punishment, the American occupation forces and the National guards continue to use some schools inside the city as compounds, depriving students from pursuing their education without offering substitutes. 7 - There are deliberate delay by the interim government and the American occupation authority in reconstructing the city of Fallujah even in restoring the basic services. What are being announced about the reconstruction are mere lies uncovered by the fact that the people who are working in Fallujah are only those governmental employees in the city, indeed their number does not match the size of destruction that the city suffered. The American themselves admitted that more than 90000 houses have been demolished. We wonder about the difference between the destruction that Fallujah has suffered and the destruction of the areas which devastated by Tsunami. Both are devastated areas but the difference is that Fallujah is not announced officially as a devastated place in order to cover the crimes perpetrated on its soil. 7 - Despite that there is an Iraqi official committee for reconstruction, the occupation forces give out contracts without knowledge or coordination with that committee. For example one contract to build a school cost One million US dollar for each school, while the official committee estimates the cost between 200 000 and 300 000 US dollars. No local or official committee is supervising these money transactions. 8 – It was not allowed until now for any body to examine the environmental pollution that affected Fallujah due to the usage of prohibited and dangerous weapons, except for analyzing the recently established processed water. Some cases are appearing now of feats deformation for some of the newborns that is taking place in the city. As an example the case of the child Mina Jabbar Mahmood Aljumaili that was recently born and is 3 months now in addition to another child in the same neighborhood that was born in a short period after in Al'andulus neighborhood. 9 - The civilians who stayed in the city during the American offensive have gone through numerous tragic stories and inhuman treatment by the occupation forces and the Iraq so-called National Guards. The deliberate killing of civilians was the daily practice of the American forces. Many children had to watch their parents being shot to death in front of them, or men who had to watch their children and their wives being killed. Almost every family who stayed in Fallujah has to bury a victim in their garden. As example, Hamid Abdulrazzak Sultan, a citizen from Fallujah, witnessed the killing of his pregnant wife along with his 4 sons during an American attack on 9 Nov 2004. Four members of Fawzi Hussein Salman al-Aisawi family where deliberately killed in their house by the American forces in front of their daughter on the morning of 9 November 2005. 10 – Until now, the citizens and the sick people are not allowed to cross the bridge which connects the city to the main hospital a matter that causes a great suffering. The city has no mean of communication to be used to report the urgent health cases during the curfew hours which force the sick to stay at home until dawn to be able to go to hospital. Many cases happened of appendicitis, labour, death due to clots which need immediate health care. Not to mention to war phobia in thousands of women and children which warns of a permanent psychological disaster that will be difficult to cure since it is becoming a chronic case. 11 - Not allowing issuing death certificates that explain the real causes of death and their numbers that occur due the crimes of the occupation forces because there are no clear instructions until now. The crime of bombing cities with so much brutality and destruction is the biggest evidence of disrespect for the lives of the unarmed civilians that were in the first year of occupation more that 100 000 citizens. 12- The puppet government is deliberately ignoring the crimes and the grave violation of the human rights happening every day in Iraq by the American forces and continued to talk about an old allegation of violations that allegedly happened years ago. These allegations were tackled by the commission in details, whether by reports of special rapporteur or by the several decisions it had adopted and accordingly some measures which were implemented aggressively against Iraq in unprecedented way. What more tragedies that international bodies are waiting for in order to raise their voices demanding to stop the massacres and mass killings of the civilians. Is what happened to Fallujah and its citizens is just an accident while the entire world is on alert if a western citizen is killed in Iraq forgetting that all that is because of the hated occupation. We call upon all countries and organizations both governmental and non governmental which taking part in the meetings of the 61st session of the UN Human Rights Commission to raise their voices and denounce those violations and exercise pressures to dispatch an investigation team to visit the city of Fallujah to examine the facts and the tragic situation that its citizens are going through. We demand the commission to nominate a special rapporteur to the human rights situation in Iraq during the occupation. We hope that this report will be distributed as among the documents of the session.

    MY COMMENT: Please go to this website The Quran on Human Embryonic Development (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetIslam-guide(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/frm-ch1-1-a.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetIslam-guide(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/frm-ch1-1-a.htm[/url] if you really want to know about 'humans are created from congealed blood.' Your ignorance leads you to make slanderous statement. It is the Bible , not the Quran , that states that the earth is flat. The Bible claims that Earth has four ends and four corners. Nobody can ever think a ball or a cycle to have corners and ends! Only flat items can have corners and ends, and this is exactly what the bible is trying to express regarding the shape of the earth: Isaiah 11:12 12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH. (KJV) Revelation 7:1 1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. (KJV) Job 38:13 13 That it might take hold of the ENDS OF THE EARTH, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? (KJV) Jeremiah 16:19 19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ENDS OF THE EARTH, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. (KJV) Daniel 4:11 11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the ENDS OF ALL THE EARTH: (KJV) Some desperate Christians have gone as far as presenting Isaiah 40:22 to try to prove that the Bible claims that the earth is round. Let us look at what the Verse says: "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 40:22)" First of all, a circle is not a ball or sphere or an egg-shaped object. A circle is a flat round surface, similar to flat rectangular, or square, or triangular surfaces. So if the Bible claims that the Earth is a circle, then this is still bogus because the earth is obviously not a flat surface.

He wraps the night up in the day, and wraps the day up in the night." (The Qur'an, 39:5) In the Qur'an, the words used for describing the universe are quite remarkable. The Arabic word that is translated as "to wrap" in the above verse is "takwir". In English, it means "to make one thing lap over another, folded up as a garment that is laid away". (For instance, in Arabic dictionaries this word is used for the action of wrapping one thing around another, in the way that a turban is put on.) The information given in the verse about the day and the night wrapping each other up includes accurate information about the shape of the world. This can be true only if the earth is round. This means that in the Qur'an, which was revealed in the 7th century, the roundness of the world was hinted at.

The Sun hurries back to where it rises?! "He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 104:5)" "The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. (From the NIV Bible, Ecclesiastes 1:5)" Well, I don't think there is any need for much explanation to the nonsense above! It is crystal clear that the Bible is full of man-made corruptions and alterations. Since when the Earth is flat and can never move?! We all know that the Earth and the other planets rotate and move in space around the Sun. Since when the Sun hurries back to where it rises, like if there is some hole it rises from and another hole it sets through on Earth?! For those Jews and Christians who would like to see where in the Noble Quran does Allah Almighty say that the planets in space rotate and move, read the following Noble Verse: "It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion. (The Noble Quran, 21:33)" (Source: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetanswering-christianity(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/earth_flat.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetanswering-christianity(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/earth_flat.htm[/url] )
  22. Ishmael Or Isaac?

    If we are to consider the fact that the ancient Jewish scholars and scribes altered many of the texts of the Torah(Taurat) according to Jeremiah 8:8, thus creating the impression that it was Isaac(as), the younger son of Abraham(as) by Sarah(ra), that was to be Abraham’s(as) sacrifice to Allah(swt), it would be made very clear. The Holy Qur’an clearly states that the son of Abraham(as) that was to be sacrificed was Ishmael(as) and not Isaac(as) as is stated in the Torah. Oddly enough, although the name of Isaac(as) appears in the text of the Bible as the “Sacrificial” child, the Torah, in actuality, confirms that Ishmael(as) was indeed the “Sacrificial” child, if not by name, then by fact. In the story of the “Sacrifice”, found in Genesis 22:2, Allah(swt) says to Abraham(as), “…Take now thy son, thine only son…”. This statement in fact confirms that Ishmael(as) was to be the child sacrificed. At no time was Isaac(as) ever the only son of Abraham(as), whereas Ishmael(as) was Abraham’s(as) only son for 14 years, so Isaac(as) could not possibly be the child referred to as “thine only son” found in the Torah. Proof: According to Gen. 16:16 Abraham was 86 years old when Ishmael was born. And according to Gen. 21:5 Abraham was one hundred years old when Isaac was born. It follows that Ishmael was already fourteen years old when his younger brother Isaac was born. Therefore Ishmael was the child referred to as “thine only son” found in the Torah. In light of this information, people in general fail to realize what the “TRUE” sign of the covenant between Allah(swt) and Prophet Abraham(as) was. That sign was the “CIRCUMCSION” of all the male offspring and was instituted before the birth of Isaac(as). Ishmael(as) was 13 years of age when he was circumcised, one year before the birth of Isaac(as). This fact can be proven with the Torah of the Jews in Genesis 17:1-27. Many ignorant minded people, in order to disprove the validity of Ishmael(as) as the first born son of Abraham(as) and rightful heir to the promise made as first born (see Deuteronomy 21:16-17) have gone so far as to refer to Ishmael(as) as a “######” child (A’udhu-Billah). This flagrant lie is squashed by the very Torah of the Jews itself were it is written in Genesis 16:3. First, let us look at Genesis 16:3, “So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian maidservant Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. (From the NIV Bible, Genesis 16:3)” Genesis 16:3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. Genesis 16:4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. Clearly this tells us Abraham (PBUH) Married Hagar so Ishmael was the first LEGITIMATE son of Abraham and he was the only son of Abraham for 14 years according to the Bible. How can Ishmael(as) be a ###### child (A’udhu-Billah) if both Abraham(as) and Hagar(ra) were legally married? Regardless of the fact that the ancient scribes substituted the name of Ishmael(as) for that of Isaac(as), all evidence in the Torah points to the fact that the promise made from Allah(swt) to Abraham(as) was fulfilled in Prophet Ishmael(as). The corruption of the Torah by the scribes was brought to light in the book of Jeremiah 8:8 were it is written, “How can you say, we are wise, since we have Yahweh’s Law? Look how it has been falsified by the lying pen of the scribes.” We must first of all know that the entire Bible is corrupted and unreliable and is mostly filled with man-made laws and corruption! "`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)" The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)" In either translation, we clearly see that the Jews had so much corrupted the Bible with their man-made cultural laws, that they had turned the Bible into a lie! This fact of corruption was also brought to light by Prophet Jesus(as) in the Gospel of Barnabas, where Jesus(as) accuses the scribes and Pharisees of the same crime of changing the text of the Torah ( and substituting the name of Ishmael(as) with that of Isaac(as)). Matthew 23 describes the hypocritical behaviors of the scribes and Pharisees. For example: Matthew 23:23 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone." Matthew 23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Matthew 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city. According to the NT, Jesus spoke out about the *Pharisees and the Scribes very strongly. Matthew 23:33 ‘You are like snakes! You are like a collection of dangerous snakes! You will not escape God’s punishment in *hell.’ Note: The Gospel of Barnabas is a non-canonical gospel written by one of the followers of Jesus(as) during his(Jesus) time in Palestine as opposed to the four canonical gospels which were written 70 to 115 years after by people who did not even know Jesus(as). Curiously, the Gospel of Barnabas is considered heresy by the Christian church.
  23. Are the US courts of law and the US judicial system fair and just? You can decide yourselves by reading the text below: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Death by discrimination - the continuing role of race in capital cases Source: Amnesty International "We simply cannot say we live in a country that offers equal justice to all Americans when racial disparities plague the system by which our society imposes the ultimate punishment." US Senator, January 2003. At least one in five of the African Americans executed since 1977 had been convicted by all-white juries, in cases which displayed a pattern of prosecutors dismissing prospective black jurors during jury selection. Louis Jones and Walanzo Robinson, like yet many other black defendants, were sentenced to death by juries made up of 11 whites and one African American. In both cases, as has happened on other occasions, the solitary black juror later alleged that he or she had been singled out for heavy pressure from their fellow jurors in order to get them to change their vote from life to death. My opinion: I don't believe in the US courts of law and the US judicial system !!!
