      The story of Treaty of Hudaibiyah talks about the story of Muslim's first plan to do Pilgrimage . How they got upset when they were not able to do so and so Allah revealed the verses that it was indeed a manifest Victory of  Islam .Everything happens because of Allah's will.We shouldn't get very upset on things that has not happened according to our Will. For Muslims the treaty of Hudaybiyah was a failure and they were very sad and depressed but then it proved to be a golden victory and because of it more and more people accepted Islam. 
       
      You can read the story here  . It is particularily inspirational in modern times when People are getting upset with the western world.It is all in Allah's plan.

      Headscarved women new targets of anti-Islam groups




       
      23 June 2013 /EMRE DEMİR, PARIS

      Headscarved Muslim women are increasingly becoming targets of persons with Islamophobic sentiments in France, with the number of racist attacks against them rising dramatically in the last two months, according to observers in the country.

      Several of the attacks on headscarved women covered by the media in the last two months took place in Argenteuil, a suburb in northwestern Paris. The representatives of Muslim organizations in France are deeply concerned that these incidents are linked.

      They highlight that new extreme right-wing organizations in France such as Bloc Identitaire and Riposte Laique are gaining in popularity among young people by carrying out anti-Islamic attacks. Evaluating the recent attacks targeting Muslim headscarved women in France to Sunday’s Zaman, Raphael Liogier -- an academic from the faculty of political science at the University of Provence, Aix-Marseille I -- said Islamophobia has been replaced by paranoia.

      Liogier, the author of “The Islamization Myth,” said: “We can no longer talk about Islamophobia. If we were in a situation of phobia, it would not lead to acting out but just to rejection. Therefore, we cannot define these incidents as the results of a phobia, but paranoia. In the case of a phobia, you can be in rejection or fear. However, we observe more aggressive actions against ‘the other’ in these incidents. Such incidents were not the case before 2003 or 2004.”

      Stating that this anti-Muslim paranoia has intensified since 2003 when US troops invaded Iraq, Liogier said: “There were no theses claiming that Muslim people had a plan to impose their cultures on French society, or that Muslims were conducting colonialism in reverse in France before 2003. The physical attacks that veiled women have recently been exposed to are not considered by some Islamophobic authors to be the result of phobia,” but a legitimate self-defense movement against the aggression of Muslims.”

      Noting that the extremist marginal groups such as Bloc Identitaire and Riposte Laique conducting recent racist attacks against veiled women in France cannot be explained with leftist or rightist ideologies, Liogier said: “Such actions have not originated from rightist or leftist ideas. They are fomenting the idea that Europe’s identity is being shattered. These groups gathered around the myth that France is being Islamicized. The rightist groups use religious and national values such as those represented by Joan of Arc to create the perception of a threat, while leftists use freedom of expression and gender equality. Such ideas can sometimes be influential on a wide range of French political parties with various political ideologies.”
      French Muslims critical of government’s indifference

      Critical of the lack of interest that the French government and media have shown for the racist attacks targeting veiled women in the last two months, Samy Debah -- president of the Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) -- told Sunday’s Zaman that it is very embarrassing that French politicians remained silent in the face of the attacks. He added: “What is Interior Minister Manuel Valls waiting for to react against the attacks or release a statement condemning the attacks? The French government should take necessary precautions for such racist attacks against Muslims as soon as possible. According to the CCIF’s annual report released in 2012, headscarved women are targeted in 87 percent of racist attacks that Muslims are exposed to in France.”

      Amar Lafsar, president of the Union of Islamic Organizations of France (UOIF), a national body with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, told Sunday’s Zaman that Muslims living in France say they live in fear. “We know France is not an Islamophobic country. However, the Muslims victimized by racists should regularly inform French public officials about the attacks they experience.”

      Abdallah Zekri, president of the Paris-Based Anti-Islamophobia Observatory, told Sunday’s Zaman that the number of racist attacks that Muslims experience in France has risen by 42 percent over the past year. Noting that a recent ban on burqa-like Islamic veils and discussions over halal meat in France played a great part in the widespread trend of racist attacks against veiled Muslim women in the country, Zekri commented: “The fact that politicians have recently increased the frequency of their provocative remarks, in which they show Muslims as targets, have also led the extremist rightist groups to intensify their attacks against the Muslims in France.”

      The French ban on wearing a burqa in public was enacted in April 2011. Under the terms of the legislation, anyone wearing the headdress in public will face a 150 euro fine or be forced to take lessons in French citizenship. The act drew harsh reactions and led to debates in France when it was first adopted.
      Some recent attacks targeting veiled women in France

      The latest attack against a veiled woman in France took place on June 13 in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil. A pregnant Muslim woman, Leila O., was physically attacked by two men and was seriously injured. The 21-year-old, who was four months pregnant, suffered a miscarriage. The attackers first tried taking her headscarf off and later cut her hair and tore part of her clothing. After she screamed out that she was pregnant, one of the attackers started kicking her in the stomach.

      A 33-year-old Turkish headscarved woman was physically assaulted by a motorcyclist while walking on the street in the French city of Reims on June 9.

      A woman of North African origin was physically attacked by a man with her 1-year-old baby in Beziers on May 24. The woman was injured in the attack.

      Again on May 24, Jean-Claude Boistard -- the mayor of Montsoult, a suburb in northern Paris – refused to allow a woman to enter the municipal building since she was wearing a veil. Boistard defended himself by stating that because the municipal building is a public place, no one can enter the building with religious symbols.

      A 17-year-old Muslim girl, Rabia, was accosted by two persons in the street in Argenteuil on May 20. The assailants tore her veil off and assaulted her. Regarding the incident, Rabia told Le Parisien that the assailants were yelling “Dirty Arab” and “Dirty Muslim” at her.

      Two men physically assaulted a 21-year-old Muslim woman in Argenteuil on May 1 and ripped her veil off. The French police raided the home of a suspected assailant who was allegedly preparing to stage an armed attack on Muslims on June 19 in Argenteuil.

      April 11, 2013

      Recently, a friend forwarded me a link to a web blog. The link points
      to a 400-page document, titled “Islam Virus”, which is a collection of
      misinformation about Islam – how cruel, inhumane and scary Muslims are.
      The owner of the blog mentions that everyone must read the document
      because what is happening in Myanmar today is very dangerous and scary.
      That is, Islam is threatening the existence of Myanmar. Pointing to
      distorted information about gross cruelty, the document urges the people
      of Myanmar to protect Myanmar race and Buddhism by opposing Islam and
      Muslims.

      On the left column of the blog site, there are icons (with links) to
      two books. One book is about the colonial-time conflict between Muslims
      and Buddhists, and the other is a well-known anti-Muslim book titled
      “fearful of the extinction of Burmese and Buddhism”.

      On the top of the column was a feature section, labeled National
      Traitors, under which people accused of supporting ethnic Rohingyas are
      listed. They include Dr. Maung Zarni, Harn Yawnghwe of Euro-Burma
      Office, Aung Zaw of The Irrawaddy magazine, Than Win Htut of Democratic
      Voice of Burma, and Burmese section directors of the Voice of America
      and BBC. There are anti-Rohingya posts here and there throughout the
      site.

      What I want to say only starts here. Those involved in anti-Muslim
      campaigns consistently claim that Kalars (derogatory term for Muslims
      and South Asians) are taking over Buddhist women and converting them to
      Islam. They also accuse Muslims to be spoiling Burmese woman to destroy
      or swallow Burmese culture.

      Only when I browse through the internet blog, I realize how irrational people are.

      First, the blog urging people to protect Burmese culture and women turns out to a very popular Myanmar web blog.

      Second, and more importantly, it is an abusive and disrespectful blog
      for women. Why? Because it features nude photos of Burmese women and
      leaked videos of Burmese couples. The blog also features photos and
      videos of Burmese women/couples shared by blog visitors.Of course, the
      attention is on ‘women’, especially their ‘passivity’ and ‘suffering’
      during sexual intercourse.

      They found the materials somewhere on the internet, or filmed by
      themselves. Some women, possibly sex workers, allowed the men to film on
      the basis that the films and photos won’t be published on the internet.
      Regardless of the promise, these nude photos and videos made their ways
      to the blog, which is a hard core pornographic blog accessible to
      everyone for free. I will not enclose the blog address here to avoid
      further publicizing of it and its contents, especially the women whose
      privacy the blog has abused.

      As soon as I realized the type of the blog, I immediately saw the
      contradiction: calling for protecting Burmese women from ‘kalar’ on the
      one hand, and abusing women by i) publicizing pirated photos and videos,
      and ii) allowing blog visitors to write sexually abusive comments on
      the other. These comments can be read as verbal rapes. Then, I asked to
      myself, how possibly can these men, shamelessly writing sexually abusive
      comments, protect the nation and the women?

      They said they want to protect the women in order to protect the
      nation, but they are verbally raping the women whose photos and videos
      were pirated. I am amazed how self-proclaimed nationalists claiming to
      protect Burmese women (by means of controlling their sexuality and
      sex-related life) can easily abuse these women. They do not seem to
      think that distributing the women’s nude images for the consumption of
      the men they do not have any inter-personal relations is a plain abuse.

      If they stay true to what they say about protecting the nation, they
      should have opposed to the blog for the sake of the women’s privacy and
      dignity. Far from it, they are the ones disgracing the women; they are
      the one fulfilling their sexual fantasies on a free website. How
      cheap they are!

      This is an important indication that nationalists uttering to protect
      the nation is not a safe refuge for women. These nationalists are in
      fact the enemies of women. They abuse women by dictating personal
      decision over relationship and reproduction. They abuse women by
      exploiting sexuality and body.

      The text said “Sky Net” logo on the TV in the back ground

      To continue with my main point, the blog owner posted the 400-page
      document on August 23, 2012. I thought he changed his attitude. I
      thought he realized he needed to start protecting women and stop abusing
      their private matters. But, the next day, he posted another nude photos
      of a Burmese lady. What is even more surprising is, he highlighted the
      logo of a Burmese channel “Sky net” on the TV in the background to
      confirm that she is truly a Burmese.

      There are many other photos and videos with exact names and locations
      such as cities and countries where the videos were taken. Some
      materials were taken secretly and make available on the internet.

      The blog also links to another website. I am not too sure if
      that belongs to the same person. On the second website, the most popular
      post, as I visited in August 2012, was a nude photo of a Burmese
      medical doctor in Thailand.

      I expected that the woman’s privacy be protected – or at least
      respected – by Burmese nationalists who have been upset and/or worried
      about Kalars taking advantage of Burmese women’s sexuality. To my
      amazement, supposedly the nation-loving and culture-loving blog owner
      only publicized the photos of the doctor. The visitors left more than a
      hundred comments that said they wanted to have intimate relations with
      her (note: of course, their languages were sexually explicit, not even
      some decent comments about woman’s body or the sort, but abusive hard
      core comments). There is no single comment that said the woman’s privacy
      should be respected. The point I want to make is, there is no such
      thing as respect for the woman. It was a plain abuse and disrespect.

       
      Book titled “Fearful of the extension of Burmese and Buddhism” (Left); Real Burmese Girl (Right)
      The more I browse the blog, the more disturbing things I found. The
      blogger posted the book “Fearful of the extinction of Burmese and
      Buddhism” on the same day as his posting of a Myanmar-born star.
      Similarly, he posted a blog post about Rohingya’s protest in the Middle
      East on the same day as his posting of a pirated video in which a woman
      was being forced to take off her cloth for filming. I found it strange
      that the blog owner was publishing nationalist posts and nude
      photos/videos of women at the same time – how contradicting it is. This
      makes me wonder, if the nationalists are using pornography for
      anti-Muslim campaigns.

      I need to mention another but similar point. The blogger posted
      photos and videos of women specifically in Burmese traditional longyi
      (women skirts). This is because the visitors asked if the women were
      really Burmese. The blog owners highlighted longyi to prove that they
      really were Burmese. I asked to myself: “is this part of Burmese
      nationalism? are they that nationalistic that even their sexual fantasy
      prefer specifically Burmese? This may sounds strange, but it is
      difficult to make sense of how the nationalists can be that sexually
      abusive against the women they said they wanted to protect. Perhaps,
      they do not want Burmese women to have relationships with ‘Kalars’, but
      they think they can abuse the women themselves. Whether or not this is
      how they think, but this is how they appear.

      In any case, the women need not be protected from Kalars, but from
      the Burmese nationalists such as the blog owner and the visitors, the
      sex fanatics who have no respect or what so ever for the women.

      The hard core, sexually abusive comments on this web blog explains
      why anti-Muslim and anti-Rohingya movement in Myanmar is characterized
      with sexually explicit language. Perhaps, they are more or less the same
      people — or the same sort of people. On various websites, insults
      against Muslims in Myanmar have to do with specific words such as male’s
      private part, mother, and the F word, just like the comments on the
      blog.


      A monk’s swearing against Muslims with male’s private part, mother and the F word

      Translation of the comments:(comment 1) son of a . This is
      our country, Myanmar. If you dog can’t say, leave. Mother [email protected]#$-er.
      Penis. You dog kalar only go to Masjid to [email protected]# your mother. Penis (9
      times). (comment 2) Penis: (15 times)

      One might say, who care about what’s going on with this web blog.
      This is a website. But I care because this is a million-hit web
      blog. Nationalists one way or other band here together, and the massive
      amount of sexually abusive comments towards women is quite concerning.

      This is a good example of how abusive nationalists can be — to be
      more accurate, how abusive “nationalist men” or “manly nationalism” can
      be. One thing for sure is no woman expects protection from the people
      who do not know the words ‘respect’, ‘privacy’ and ‘dignity’.
