  1. A Message From A Descendant Of The Messenger

    W/salam brother, The answer is Al-Husayn.
  2. Obama The New Terrorist In The White House

    Do you still remember that Obama has promised to withdraw all the US forces from Iraq within 16 months and now he breaks and violates his own promise by saying that 50 000 US soldiers are going to occupy Iraq for a long long time? So now we know that Obama is a hypocritical terrorist just like GW Bush, Sharon, Hitler, Mussolini etc who lie and terrorize the world. In other word, Iraq is being occupied by the US regime of terror and the US puppet Iraqi regime is governing Iraq on behalf of the US regime. Obama to Leave 50,000 Troops in Iraq Indefinitely President Tells Lawmakers Troops Will Stay to "Protect US Interests" Posted February 26, 2009 Last Updated 2/27/09 4:35 PM EST As we reported yesterday, President Obama’s Iraq “withdrawal” plan will leave up to 50,000 troops in a warzone engaging in combat missions. Today the president detailed the plans for members of Congress, and said the remnant forces, which would remain for an indefinite period of time, will be in Iraq to “advise Iraqi troops and protect US interests.” The decision to keep such an enormous number of ground troops in the nation after the war is ostensibly over, engaging in combat no less, does not sit well with many in Congress. The White House briefings are meant to shore up support for Obama’s new position, a stark contrast from his campaign promises. During the campaign the president spoke repeatedly of a 16 month timetable, but backed off of it almost immediately after taking office. The current plan would spell a significant cut in ground troops in 19 months, but leaves open the question of when (or even if) the Obama Administration ever intends to formally leave the nation.

  3. Why do you use the word if ? The fact is most of the people do not have a simple geiger counter to detect nuclear fallout in their homes so they will not know when they are exposed to nuclear fallout ! As I have said before, most of the people in USA, UK etc do not have a simple geiger counter so they cannot detect the presence of nuclear fallout in their homes, villages, towns, cities until it is to late to avoid the nuclear fallout. The nuclear fallout will contaminate your farms, villages, towns, cities and the food chains and food webs. Even if they have a geiger counter, it is too late for them to avoid the nuclear fallout once the geiger counter detects the nuclear fallout because they and you are already exposed to ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation such as neutrons and gamma rays will ensure that you are going to die sooner or later. Radiation poisoning will ensure that your tissue will be damaged due to excessive exposure to ionizing radiation. Or your body cells may mutate and you'll have abnormal children, Martians etc. You should consider the short and long term effect of the nuclear radiation on human beings, animals and plants.
  4. My Open Questions

    I have sent you a message requesting you to answer the questions above long before you make the statement above. Please answer the questions instead of avoiding them. You should not avoid the questions because your answers will reflect your stance on this serious issue. Why are you so afraid of the questions? Why are you so reluctant to answer the questions? Do you think that your answers may expose your stance on this serious issue? Please don't be afraid to answer the questions. Once again, I request you to answer all the questions above. Truth fears no questions. ~Unknown Always tell the truth. If you can't always tell the truth, don't lie. ~Author Unknown
  5. The fact is ordinary men and women are unable to detect the presence of nuclear fallout until they suffer life shortening, carcinogenesis, cataract formation, chronic radiodermatitis, decreased fertility, and genetic mutations. The nuclear fallout can contaminate of the food chain long before ordinary people realise it. Can you detect the presence of nuclear fallout in your own home? You can't.
  6. A Message From A Descendant Of The Messenger

    How did Prophet Muhammad introduced himself when he spoke about Islam in ? Didn't Allah order Muhammad to tell the people that he (Muhammad) is the messenger of Allah (God)? "Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “If you (really) love Allâh then follow me (i.e. accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur’ھn and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Say (O Muhammad): “Obey Allâh and the Messenger (Muhammad).” But if they turn away, then Allâh does not like the disbelievers." (Qur’an 3: 31) Allah (S.W.T.) tells us that he who obeys His Messenger (s.a.w.s.) obeys Him: "He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad) has indeed obeyed Allâh, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you (Muhammad) as a watcher over them." (Qurân 4: 80) Allah (S.W.T.) sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth to make it prevail over all religions. He (I) says: "It is He (Allah) Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth that he may proclaim it over all religion even though the Pagans may detest (it)." (Qurân 61: 9) Have you ever heard about Ahlul- bayt ? In his musnad Imam Ahmed said Zeid bin Thabit said Muhammad (may the blessing and peace of Allah be on him) said ( I leave two vicegerent in you , the Qura’n-a robe links earth and heaven or heaven with earth . And the members of my family . Both are inseparable) . Abu Baker (May Allah be pleased with him) said on the authority of Al-Bukhari that ( O you people take care of Muhammad by being good to his family) . Ibin Hajar said in Al-Sawa’iq Al-Muhriqatu related to the messenger of Allah said ( He who hurts my relatives hurts me . He who hurts me hurts Allah). The messenger of Allah said (By Allah no servant is considered as believer unless he loves me . No one loves me unless he loves my relatives). Ibin Al-Arabi said concerning the prestige of Al-Beit : Muhammad the messenger of Allah , ordered us to love them and treat them kindly . No one will gain Muhammad intercession unless he loves and respect his kins) . Thank you. You don't know me nor my lineage so how can you make the statement above?
  7. A Message From A Descendant Of The Messenger

    Yes I am a descendant of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) but I will not discuss my lineage on this forum to protect my identity. Suffice to say that my father, grandmother and grandfather are the descendants of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) and I still look like a good-looking Arab man. Can you prove that you are a man on this forum?
  8. I agree with Tom that a nuclear war may destroy this world. After an air burst, the fission products, unfissioned nuclear material, and weapon residues which have been vaporized by the heat of the fireball will condense into a fine suspension of very small particles 10 nm to 20 µm in diameter. These particles may be quickly drawn up into the stratosphere, particularly if the explosive yield exceeds 10 kt. The radio-biological hazard of worldwide nuclear fallout is essentially a long-term one because of the potential accumulation of long-lived radioisotopes (such as strontium-90 and caesium-137) in the body as a result of ingestion of foods containing the radioactive materials. Meteorological conditions will greatly influence fallout, particularly local fallout. Atmospheric winds are able to bring fallout over large areas. A wide range of biological changes may follow the irradiation of animals and Man. These vary from rapid death following high doses of penetrating whole-body radiation, to essentially normal lives for a variable period of time until the development of delayed radiation effects, in a portion of the exposed population, following low dose exposures. Late or delayed effects of radiation occur following a wide range of doses and dose rates. Delayed effects may appear months to years after irradiation and include a wide variety of effects involving almost all tissues or organs. Some of the possible delayed consequences of radiation injury are life shortening, carcinogenesis, cataract formation, chronic radiodermatitis, decreased fertility, and genetic mutations.

  9. The fact is the UN and the superpowers such as the US regime and the UK regime have robbed Palestinian people of their land by giving 56.47 % of Palestine to Jews and pseudo-Jews (Khazars) to enable the Zionist terrorists to establish an illegal israel state. On the contrary, according to Ottoman statistics studied by Justin McCarthy, the population of Palestine in the early 19th century was 350,000, in 1860 it was 411,000 and in 1900 about 600,000 of which 94% were Arabs. In 1914 Palestine had a population of 657,000 Muslim Arabs, 81,000 Christian Arabs, and 59,000 Jews. It is like to give 56.47 % of USA to Jews and pseudo-Jews to establish israel. Therefore, the UN and the US regime and the UK regime are highly hypocritical and morally wrong.
  10. According to the Jordanian medical team in Gaza, more than 99% of the victims of the barbaric Zionist invasion of Gaza are the Palestinian children, women and unarmed men. In other word, the 99% of about 1300-2000 people killed in Gaza by Zionist terrorists are civilians. The whorish media always try to downplay the number of the casualty to fool the world and condone the Zionist crime against humanity.
  11. I have already answered your questions in my posts above. You can refer the word 'illegally' to the barbaric Zionists who would be pleased to tell you that Zionists have been attacking, invading and occupying Palestine etc illegally by using illegal means, violating the basic human right and the International Law etc, and torturing, raping, murdering, massacring and robbing the innocent and defenseless Palestinian people of their land, homes, farms, villages, towns, freedom, basic human right etc since 1948 so that the barbaric Zionist can establish the illegal israel.
  12. Missing Verse In Qur'an [nauzubillah]

    Allah has guaranteed the Quran’s protection from any corruption or distortion. Allah has said: Indeed, We have sent down the Quran, and surely We will guard it (from corruption). (Quran, 15:9) In this case I trust Allah with all my heart. Since Allah has guaranteed the Quran's protection, there is no Missing Verse In Qur'an, Surah al-Bakara ayah 238. The Holy Quran is complete!! Please be careful of any attempts to discredit the Holy Quran. The enemies of Islam always invent baseless and nonsensical fairy tales to discredit Islam, Quran, Haddiths, Sunnah, Prophet Muhammad etc to confuse Muslims and non-Muslims.
  13. The truth is the Western nations are the imperialists throughout history by carrying out the policy of extending a nation's authority by territorial acquisition or by the establishment of economic and political hegemony over Muslim nations. And we know that influential Zionists such Winston Churchill control many of the Western regimes and the israeli regime of terror invent fairy tales as a pretext to wage war against Muslim nations, carry out covert operations to frame Muslim nations and they attack, invade and occupy Muslim nations and plunder the natural resources and riches of Muslim countries and terrorize, enslave and massacre innocent and defenseless Muslims. Balfour Declaration of 1917 is a Zionist-Western conspiracy to establish the illegal israel by attacking, invading and occupying Palestine, terrorizing and massacring and robbing Palestinian people of their land, freedom, basic human right, homes, villages, towns etc and we know that the Christians and Zionists were the ones who had planned and carried out Balfour Declaration of 1917. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 (dated 2 November 1917) was a classified formal statement of policy by the British government stating that "His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people" with the understanding that "nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."[1] The declaration was made in a letter from Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, a Zionist organization. The letter reflected the position of the British Cabinet, as agreed upon in a meeting on 31 October 1917. It further stated that the declaration is a sign of "sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations." The statement was issued through the efforts of Chaim Weizmann and Nahum Sokolow, the principal Zionist leaders based in London but, as they had asked for the reconstitution of Palestine as “the” Jewish national home, the Declaration fell short of Zionist expectations.[2] The "Balfour Declaration" was later incorporated into the Sèvres peace treaty with Turkey and the Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library. Balfour explained: "The contradiction between the letters of the Covenant [of the League of Nations] and the policy of the Allies is even more flagrant in the case of the ‘independent nation’ of Palestine than in that of the ‘independent nation‘ of Syria. For in Palestine we do not propose to even go through the form of consulting the wishes of the present inhabitants of the country though the American Commission is going through the form of asking what they are. The Four Great Powers [britain, France, Italy and the United States] are committed to Zionism. And Zionism, be it right or wrong, good or bad, is rooted in age-long traditions, in present needs, and future hopes, of far profounder import than the desires and prejudices of the 700,000 Arabs who now inhabit that ancient land. In my opinion that is right. The anniversary of the Declaration, 2 November, is widely commemorated in israel and among Jews in the Jewish diaspora as Balfour Day.

I also blame the traitorous Muslim politicians who become the US-Zionist puppets by serving the interest of the US regime, the israeli regime of terror and their allies and denying the right of Muslims to have a good Muslim government. They and their Zionist masters are responsible for ( I quote your words) the muslims tragic weakness. Therefore, we can see the roles of Christians and Zionists as the imperialists in Muslim nations.
  14. I have answered your question in my posts above.
  15. Holocaust Industry

    The Holocaust is a Zionist Lie MEMRI July 30, 2004 Egypt's Ruling Party Newspaper: The Holocaust is a Zionist Lie Aimed at Extorting the West Dr. Rif'at Sayyed Ahmad, director of the "Jaffa Research Center" in Cairo and columnist for Al-Liwaa Al-Islami, which is the Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party's paper, published a two-part article titled 'The Lie About The Burning of the Jews.' In his article, Ahmad stated, using the work of Western Holocaust deniers, that the burning of Jews in gas chambers during World War II was a tale made up by the Zionist movement in order to extort the West and make possible the establishment of the Zionist enterprise. The following are excerpts from the article:(1) 'Did this Holocaust Indeed Take Place, and what is the Truth about the Numbers?' "The Zionist enterprise on the land of Palestine succeeded by means of lies and myths, from the myth of the 'Chosen People' and the 'Promised Land' to the lie about the burning of the Jews in the Nazi gas chambers during World War II. When these means were scientifically examined, it was proven that they were untrue, that their reasoning was weak, and that they cannot withstand the test of solid fact. "What interests us here is that this lie [about] the burning of the Jews in the Nazi crematoria has been disseminated throughout the world until our time in order to extort the West and make it easier for the Jews of Europe to hunt [sic] Palestine and establish a state on it, in disregard of the most basic principles of international law and the right of peoples to independent life without occupation. [This lie] was raised [also] so that [the Jews] would receive financial, technological, and economic aid from the West. "During the past 50 years, Germany alone gave a total of some $100 billion. Many European countries began to amend their laws so that they would be compatible with the Holocaust myth ... and they toughened the regulations, resolutions, and laws convicting anyone who mocks this lie or tries to [state that] the number of victims was smaller - as happened to Muslim philosopher Roger Garaudy in France. "This entire situation has turned the Holocaust - that is, Hitler's operation of burning the Jews in gas chambers - into a drawn sword at the necks of historians and serious researchers in the West, and even in the East. At the same time, [the Holocaust] became profitable goods for the Zionist entity... "At a conference of 50 countries held in Germany in April 2004, the German foreign minister delivered a speech called 'Antisemitism.' He demanded that the conference participants demonstrate solidarity with israel and fight those who deny or cast doubt on the matter of the burning of the Jews in the Nazi crematoria. Several months ago in the city of Stockholm, Sweden, some 26 European and non-European countries passed a resolution to teach 'the false Nazi holocaust' that Hitler had carried out against the Jews, at all stages of study in the schools of the participating countries. At the same time, there were words of appreciation for the israeli prime minister, whose entity is today implementing the same purported Hitler Nazism. "None of the senior officials who participated in the conference bothered to answer a number of questions: Did this holocaust indeed take place, and what is the truth about the numbers that were disseminated regarding it? [They did not answer the question of] what their opinion was regarding the slaughter in cold blood of children, men, and defenseless elderly in Palestine today, since September 28, 2002 [sic]. Is this not 'the new Nazism?' And how does their false European integrity and their false defense of human rights accept this? "To this day, none of these countries has answered these questions, and never will answer them, because they are hypocrites with regard to [the difference between] perception and analysis, and there is no chance of getting an answer from them. We can only present clear-cut evidence, and try to reread the story of this 'holocaust' with complete objectivity." 'Objective Essays by Zionist Authors Prove the Lie about the Burning of the Jews in Gas Chambers' "First, the facts about this lie and what surrounds it, as follows: "[The number] of victims as a result of World War II, due both to the crimes of the Axis countries and the [crimes of] the Allies, are, according to a few versions, about 50 million, whether as a result of the war or of Hitler's crimes. Of these, 18 million were Germans. Among the victims of this war were Jews, like other members of the human race, as war and cannon shells and planes are incapable of distinguishing between Jew and non-Jew. "Similarly, Hitler was against all nationalities that were not pure German, whether Jewish or non-Jewish. He was a fanatical German nationalist whose nationalism, which was against everything except Germany, included, of course, both Jews and non-Jews. "Objective essays by Zionist authors prove the lie about the burning of the Jews in gas chambers. Of these it is possible to mention, for example, Josef Ginzburg, a German [Jew] who lived under Nazi rule and fled with his family to America and from there went to israel - about whose establishment he was enthusiastic. But after experiencing what he called its racist Nazi essence, he quickly left israel and returned to Germany in the 1950s. There [in Germany] he wrote a number of important books about the 'holocaust,' denying that there had been gas chambers designed for burning the Jews. He said: 'This is nothing but a great lie, by means of which the extremist Jews wanted to extort Europe - particularly Germany - and to plunder the homelands of others.' And that is exactly what happened in occupied Palestine. "Josef Ginzburg was murdered by the Jews when he went to visit his wife's grave in Munich's Jewish cemetery, in retaliation for his attempt to expose their falsification." The Hoax of the 20th Century "The famous French historian and geographer Paul Rassinein [sic, reference to Paul Rassinier] tried to confront this falsification and lie from the outset. In 1948, he published an extremely important history book about this falsification, called 'Crossing the Line.'(2) In his book, he used exact numbers and statistics about the number of Jews in Europe - particularly in Germany - prior to and following World War II. He carefully compared these [with the number of victims], and concluded that the number of killed from among them as a result of the war or as a result of Hitler's persecution of them and others who were not German subjects did not exceed a few hundred thousand. [Rassinier wrote in his book], 'The number did not reach even one million killed, at most.' "Paul Rassinier was persecuted and stood trial. He, the publisher, and the author of the book's preface were all fined a large amount, just like what happened half a century later to the Muslim philosopher Roger Garaudy when he published his book 'The Founding Myths of Zionism,'(3) in which he refuted this same lie - the lie of the burning of the Jews in the gas chambers. And in a democratic country, France, he [Garaudy] was sentenced to nine months' imprisonment, fined, persecuted, and slandered. What kind of democracy is this, that does not tolerate the intellectual efforts of others on this world's historical issues?... "The American author and researcher Arthur Butz produced an important book titled 'The Hoax of the Twentieth Century'(4)... This book includes precise scientific data on the Auschwitz camp, where it was alleged that 1.2 million Jews were 'burnt.' Arthur Butz proved that at this camp dead bodies - of Jews and non-Jews - were burnt as a result of the war, and that their bodies were burnt so contagious diseases would not be spread by leaving them in the streets for a long time. [similarly,] it is almost certain that it was not Hitler who built the crematoria, but the Poles, after the war, and that the odors emitted by the crematoria in which the bodies were burnt were also those of horses who died as a result of the war... He concluded from all this that the 'crematoria' ... were a lie that must now be exposed. Of course, Arthur Butz was attacked by world Zionism, and nearly paid with his life." 'No Matter what Proof We Present, [the Jews and] the European Politicians will Never Believe Us' "The evidence and the objective essays published in the world about this 'lie,' which the Jews have succeeded in exploiting with great wisdom, are continuing. The most recent important attempt, which also faced a Zionist counterattack, was that of British historian David Irving, who in 1990 stated before 800 people in Munich that there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz, and that the gas chamber in the detention camp there was erected by the Poles after the war - similar to the one erected by the Americans at Dachau - and that six million Jews were not burnt there as was alleged. "In January 2002, he again stated that it was inconceivable that the number of Jews killed as a result of the war reached this number [six million]... "In the same way, articles by Gilbert Aire [sic] appeared in the British [newspaper The] Independent, in which he considered the talk about the Holocaust as nothing more than a cheap fashion. Similarly, the essays of British authors Sam Shulman, Tim Cole, and Nata Shalter [sic], of the American author Peter Novick, and of dozens of other [authors] of conscience, who were very humiliated by the trade in the false Holocaust... "No matter what details and proof emphasizing the lie of the burning of the Jews in Nazi crematoria we present, they [the Jews] and the statesmen of Europe who trade in the Holocaust will never believe us. On the contrary - it is almost certain that they will accuse us of antisemitism... "Dozens of Western laws in the European countries have been changed to protect this false myth of the burning of the Jews. Dozens of curricula have also been changed. Today, it is possible to curse the monotheistic religions, but the 'holocaust' and its lie are above criticism and above opinion, and in Europe it is unapproachable. "All this proves that we are standing before new Western idol-worship that requires a genuine cultural revolution within it in order to destroy it - a revolution that will use facts and science against tales ungrounded in true reality and credible history."

  16. Holocaust Industry

    You are exaggerating the Holocaust by using the word 'Everyone knows this'. The fact is the Red Cross does not have any statistics that show 6 million of Jews were wiped out by Nazi Germany so the Holocaust is a lie that is invented by the Zionists themselves. The fact is the naked Jews were deloused by the Germans. Epidemic typhus, Murine typhus or "endemic typhus" and Scrub typhus are spread by lice on humans, fleas on rats and harvest mites on humans respectively, can be fatal in any concentration camps so the Germans deloused the Jews in order to save them. Even the British had large gas chambers to eliminate lice etc to prevent typhus from spreading. Can I say that the British had carry out the Holocaust against the Jews in UK? I challenge you to show me the official Nazi records to support your allegation above. The Zionists know that the so-called Holocaust is a Zionist lie so they and their Zionist puppets make the law that suppresses the freedom of speech by forbidding educated from questioning, discussing and investigating the so-called Holocaust critically. It is an attempt by the Zionists to silence the educated people and condone the lie.
  17. A Message From A Descendant Of The Messenger

    Boycott of israel is starting to bite Fri, 06 Mar 2009 02:34 UTC Shir Hever, an economist with the Palestinian-israeli Alternative Information Center (AIC), notes that four recent articles in Ha'aretz' business section, The Marker, have fretted about the impact of boycotts, divestment & sanctions (BDS) on the israeli economy. Writes Hever in the AIC, March 1: The growing protest against the atrocities committed by the israeli military in the Gaza Strip have begun to change something in the israeli political discourse, and the first indication of this can already be seen in the israeli economic media. Although the israeli economic media doesn't concern itself with the moral dimension of the attacks on Gaza, the economic dimension of recent events have created a rising level of concern. In order to demonstrate this trend, here are summaries of four articles that appeared in the israeli The Marker magazine for economic news: 1. On 2 February, Guy Grimland warned about a growing phenomenon of boycott of israeli high-tech companies, and several israeli companies received letters from European and U.S. companies explaining that they cannot invest in israel for moral reasons. 2. In 3 February, Nehemia Strassler, one of israel's most famous economic correspondents, attacked the israeli Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, Eli Yishai, for calling on the israeli military to "destroy one hundred homes in Gaza for every rocket that falls in israel." Strassler had nothing to say about the Palestinians living in these homes or about the loss of life, but he warned: "[the minister] doesn't even understand how the operation in Gaza hurts the economy. The horror sights on television and the words of politicians in Europe and Turkey change the behavior of consumers, businessmen and potential investors. Many European consumers boycott israeli products in practice. Intellectuals call for an economic war against us and to enforce an official and full consumer boycott. Calls are heard in board meetings of economic corporations to boycott trade relations with israel. So far deals were cancelled with Turkey, the UK, Egypt and the Gulf States, and visits by economic delegations were cancelled. It's much easier now to switch providers while abandoning israeli providers. Many company boards are required to take wide considerations into account with regards to the good of society and the environment, and they put political considerations in that slot as well. Of course there is an economic cost to severing diplomatic ties. Qatar cut its trade relations with israel, Venezuela and Bolivia cut diplomatic relations. Mauritania recalled its ambassador and the relations with Turkey worsened considerably - and this bad ambience seeps into the business sector decisions. Here, just yesterday Dudi Ovshitz, who grows peppers for export, said that 'there is a concealed boycott of israeli products in Europe.'" 3. On 6 February, Shuki Sadeh wrote about even more companies that have decided to boycott relations with israel. A Turkish company demanded that israeli companies sign a document condemning the israeli massacre in Gaza before they can offer their services for it. Sadeh quoted Naomi Klein's recent call for boycott, the 2005 Palestinian civil society call for boycott and israeli organizations that support the boycott and provide information for the global BDS movement. Sadeh's article also had concerned quotes by israeli businessmen who demanded government intervention to protect them from the growing boycott. 4. In 11 February, Ora Koren reported that the israeli business sectors feel the effects of the attack on Gaza. She reported that israeli businessmen in Turkey are hiding their names so that the local BDS organizations won't learn about their activities, and that the situation is even worse in the UK. These four articles are a sign that there is a shift in the effectiveness of the BDS movement against israel, and that if the momentum is maintained and strengthened, israeli businessmen may decide to move their headquarters away from israel, or to begin to put pressure on the israeli government to begin respecting international law, and ending the occupation. Hever has written extensively on the economy of the occupation & the usefulness of BDS tactics to fight it, available here.

    Does the boycott work? Oh yes! For example, one of the companies hardest hit by the boycott is McDonalds. McDonalds is a "major corporate partner" of the Jewish United Fund. In its own words, the Jewish United Fund "works to maintain American military, economic and diplomatic support for israel; monitors and, when necessary, responds to media coverage of israel." Also, McDonalds chairman and CEO Jack M. Greenberg is a honorary director of the American-israel Chamber of Commerce and Industry. McDonalds has 80 resturants in israel, providing employment to 3000 israelis. McDonalds has just announced it is closing down its operation in the middle east due to loss of revenue as a direct result of the boycott (Oct 2002), and is replacing Greenberg as its chairman and CEO (Dec 2002). Since the launch of the boycott campaign, two of Jordan's six McDonald's franchises have closed due to lack of business. In Egypt, McDonald's decided to change its brand name to Manfoods this past March, in an attempt to dodge the boycott. It had no effect and Egyptian police forces were ordered to guard the entrances to McDonald's restaurants, after stone throwing incidents took place. A total of 175 restaurants will be closed at a loss of $350 million. In the face of giants like McDonalds crumbling under the pressure of the boycott, smaller companies are weary of supporting israel and are steering clear in fear of being boycotted. Amidst calls for a boycott of Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link), the internet bookstore Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) terminated its association with the Jerusalem Post (Nov 2002). It was revealed that the Jerusalem Post was donating its slice of the profits derived from the amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) partnership to israeli soldiers returning home after committing massacres and other abuses of human rights on the occupied territories. Their advert, which appeared on most of their pages, read "Buy Amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) & Support israel". Inundated with complaints, amazon(contact admin if its a beneficial link) severed its ties to the Jerusalem Post, demanding they remove all the adverts and vowed not to hand over any more profits. Other companies, disgusted by israel's treatment of the Palestinians have themselves actively joined the boycott. In May 2002 a US auto part export company refused to do business with israel. In a reply to a purchase order from israel, John Harris, representing Texas Automotive Export wrote: "We must inform you that Texas Export will not do business with israeli citizens at this time. We urge you to rein in your military and stop your oppression of the Palestinian people," the letter said. "Your country has lost the respect of the civilised world," it concluded. The success of the boycott has so worried the US government and israel, both afraid that companies will abandon israel, that just last week the US threatened to fine US companies that take part in the boycott. The Department of Commerce has already issued more than $26m in fines and turned down export licences to those companies found supporting the boycott - so much for democracy and a right to choose who to do business with! Can the boycott really effect the israeli economy? israel's economy is on the verge of total collapse with no sign of recovery despite cash injections from uncle Sam. In Oct 2002 Sharon begged Washington for $10 billion in emergency aid. Inflation is sky rocketing - even the official figure is over 4 times the government target. VAT has just been raised as have fuel bills and all basic living costs like food and rents. Unemployment is soaring and salary cuts are the order of the day. This has resulted in a series of crippling general strikes - the last one bringing the country to a standstill - flight in and out of israel had to be suspended, radio and television broadcasts stopped and health workers only dealt with emergencies. The streets are piling up with uncollected garbage. Foreign investment, a life-line for the zionist state, has also dried up. Figures reveal that investors have lost $5 billion of the $6.5 billion invested in israel between 1999-2001. No one is prepared to invest any more. The israeli government is so short of money that its cost cutting includes shutting down several embassies and consulates around the world! At this critical time, the importance of the global boycott of israel and of the collaborating companies that give it its life-line cannot be overemphasised. israel is counting every penny - every penny matters - ensure yours don't go to israel!

    W/salam brother, The boycott has hit Coca-Cola in the middle east so hard that their sales are down 60%. This has created an opportunity for a Muslim alternative, ZamZam Cola of Iran, which is owned by the religious charity the Foundation of the Dispossessed, to take Coca-Colas share of the market. Zam Zam Cola is struggling to keep up with demand - it exceeded all expectations by selling four million cans in its first week. Zam Zam Cola is now planning to expand by build factories in the gulf states, helping provide local employment. And for the first time even European countries like Denmark, are importing ZamZam Cola.

  20. Why don't you read my posts above? I have already answered your questions again and again and I find that you are trying to distract me from discussing the real issues by asking me the same twisted questions again and again. The real issues are the Zionist genocide of the defenseless and innocent Palestinian people, the illegal Zionist occupation of Palestine, the Zionist violation of the International Law etc. Why don't you discuss these issues instead of framing and slandering Hamas? Please don't behave like a typical Zionist who tends to exaggerate the nonsensical Zionist fairy tales to frame Hamas and condone Zionist crime against humanity and downplaying the Zionist crime against humanity. Why don't you discuss the Lavon Affair and other Zionist covert operations and false flag operations? I am sure Zionists are afraid to discuss the Zionist crime against humanity.

    Salam for Muslims, The good news is Coca-Cola (a Zionist company) Profit Falls 18 Percent ! Let us carry on boycotting the Zionist and US products and companies because they finance and support the israeli genocide of Palestinian people and illegal Zionist invasion and occupation of Palestine.

    You have to open a new thread to discuss them specifically and to present your so-called tons of evidence so that I can refute your so-called tons of evidence. This reported case might only be the tip of the iceberg. What does this mean? The sadistic US regime is using torture to extract an admission or confession by an innocent Muslim. This means that the US regime is trying to frame, slander and blame innocent Muslims by subjecting innocent Muslims to torture to force them to admit to the 9-11 crime that they had nothing to do with. There are many reports regarding the US regime and the US agents torturing innocent Muslims to force them to admit to the crime that they had nothing to do with in US prisons in Guantanamao (Cuba), USA and overseas. The innocent Muslims are simply tortured and framed by the US regime that results in severe mental and or physical suffering because the US regime is trying to condone the evil Zionist terrorists who had planned and carried out the 9-11 etc. Typically, torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment occur mostly upon arrest, in detention at US , prisons and holding facilities for innocent Muslims. The US regime and the israeli regime of terror have tons of fabricated evidence to frame innocent Muslims and to condone the Zionist terrorists who were responsible for the 9-11 etc. As I have said before, you have to open a new thread to present your so-called tons of evidence so that I can refute your so-called tons of evidence. What I am saying is Hamas as the legitimate government of Palestine has its right to defend Gaza etc and to get back possession of the Palestinian land that the barbaric israeli regime of terror has stolen or robbed. Hitler, Sharon, GW Bush etc were the democratically elected Prime Minster of Germany and israel , President of USA respectively but they are the worst international terrorists for inventing nonsensical fairy tales as a pretext to wage war against defenseless countries, attacking, invading and occupying other countries, terrorizing, enslaving and massacring innocent people and destroying civilian targets in foreign countries and violating the International Law. The barbaric israeli regime of terror has been attacking, invading and occupying Palestine illegally and terrorizing and massacring innocent and defenseless Palestinian people and destroying civilian targets and we all know that the barbaric Zionist terrorists have been terrorizing and robbing innocent Palestinian people of their land in order to establish the illegal Greater israel. Therefore, it is morally right for Hamas to retaliate whenever the barbaric Zionist terrorists attack Gaza etc. It is morally right if Hamas attack israel to retake the land that has been stolen or robbed by the barbaric Zionist terrorists. The fact is the barbaric israeli regime of terror and the sadistic Zionist terrorists have been attacking, invading and occupying Palestine illegally and terrorizing and massacring innocent and defenseless Palestinian people without any provocations since 1948 so Palestinian people have their right to use force to defend themselves and to retake their land that has been stolen by the barbaric Zionists. The International Law etc allow Hamas as the legitimate government of Palestine to defend Palestine by using force against the israeli forces. The real issue here is the israeli regime of terror is violating the International Law, the Geneva Convention, the Nuremburg Principle etc and the basic human right of Palestinian people by attacking, invading and occupying Palestine illegally. You should condemn israel for its crime against humanity instead of blaming and framing Hamas. Hamas is using the rockets because it has no other weapons to defend itself and retaliate. What is clear here is the hypocrisy of the US regime and its allies prevents Hamas from getting the right weapons to stop the Zionist crime against Palestinian people while the US regime supports and finances the barbaric israeli regime of terror to the extent that the israeli regime of terror and Zionist terrorists are allowed to use the US-made weapons and WMDs to massacre the innocent and defenseless Palestinian people and destroy civilian targets in Palestine.
  23. skibture, Why don't you discuss the Lavon Affair instead of framing and slandering Hamas? Lets us discuss the Lavon Affair.
  24. In the 2006 democratic election, Hamas claims 76 of the 132 parliamentary seats so Hamas is the legitimate government of Palestine. Hamas as the legitimate government of Palestine has the authority to make and the power to enforce laws, regulations, or rules. Fatah is the minority so Fatah has no right to overthrow the Hamas government and Hamas as the legitimate government of Palestine may use force to prevent Fatah from overthrowing the legitimate Hamas government. The fact is Fatah has violated democracy and robbed the right of Palestinian people to elect Hamas so Fatah is a traitorous political party that serves the US barbaric US regime and the sadistic israeli regime not the people of Palestine.
  25. Israel's Next Step

    Richard555, I have read your baseless statement above and I find that you are a biased ignorant man for making the nonsensical statement above. The fact is the 9/11 and 7/1 were carried out by Mossad agents who cooperated with CIA, MI5 and MI6 to blame, frame and demonize Muslims and Muslim countries. Muslims had nothing to do with the 9/11 and 7/7 because Muslims gain nothing from them. It is the Zionists and Zionism who gain so much from the 9/11 and 7/7 by pitting the world against innocent Muslims. I will be glad to debate with you on the 9/11 and 7/7. The fact is innocent Muslims were framed and tortured by the US regime and UK regime so that they would admit to the crime that they had nothing to with: Susan. J. Crawford is the top Bush administration official overseeing the military trials of terrorist suspects held at the U.S. prison in Cuba. She told The Washington Post that the United States tortured a Saudi man in 2002. The legal implications of the treatment prevented her from bringing him to trial, Crawford said. The case of Mohammed al-Qahtani, whom officials have claimed was to have been the "20th hijacker" on 9/11, illustrates the legal and logistical trouble ahead for President-elect Barack Obama, who plans to order the closure of the stigmatized prison his first week on the job. "We tortured Qahtani," Crawford said, making her the first senior Bush administration official to say that aggressive interrogation techniques had crossed the line.

And the Zionists also provoke a confrontaion by attacking Gaza etc so Hamas has its right to make a counter-attack by firing rockets into the illegitimate israel. You say (I quote) "Stop the rocket attacks and the Palestinians will be in a much better political position, if all they are doing is defending themselves then the International community will be outraged by any Isreali attack, and public support for such attacks will soon fade in israel. israel views itself as a nation under attack surrounded by potential enemies, if that viewpoint can be altered then maybe they will return to diplomacy." Are you joking? You must be a joker. The fact is the israeli regime of terror and Zionist terrorists have been violating the International Law etc by attacking, invading and occupying Palestine illegally and terrorizing, torturing, raping, murdering and massacring the defenseless and innocent Palestinian people since 1948. The Zionists even defy the countless UN resolutions against israel. The Zionists are not interested to make peace because the Zionists are the barbaric war criminals and warmongers: "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." israel Koenig, "The Koenig Memorandum"
