To All My Friends

To all my friends, whether you side with the Zionists, Muslims, or moderates. Please listen to this song:

Legislative Buffoonery

This excerpt from a Time article about proposed legislation re: church and state: The North Carolina bill—which appears to be dead for now—was one of two big church-state blow-ups last week. In Tennessee, legislators withdrew a school voucher bill that would have allowed parents to direct taxpayer money to private schools, including Christian academies. The […]

Protecting Al-Assad

This is exactly what I was talking about in my last post. If the United States is not going to move against the thug President of Syria Bashar Al-Assad due to his crimes against humanity (and I understand the arguments against US involvement) there should at least be a legal means for US citizens to […]

Legal Mercenaries

May you die and burn in hell Bashar al-Assad for your war on Muslims and

Rote and Wrote

Arabic Nasheed

If I ever become a boxer I’m going to have them play this song by Raghuda Al Wazzan (رغودة الوزان) with Toyor al Jannah (طويور الجنة) when I walk into the ring. In studying Arabic from home, I’ve started from the ground up which means I started with books and videos on the Arabic alphabet, […]

Malala Yousufzai and Emmit Till

In reading the comments sections of the various news articles regarding the Taliban’s attempted assassination of Malala Yousufzai, a constant theme from commentors has been the accusation that the Islamic world culturally is a thousand years or more behind the West. How quickly we as Americans forget our history, in the case of Pakistan in […]
