FBI Muslims and Militancy Considerations --- Heads up

A Public Service Message from Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
Ominous clouds are hovering over the Muslims of the West as they occupy themselves in virtuous mosque-piety behind useful idiots, false leaders and Trojan horses, quite oblivious to the reality around them. The best among the Muslim institutional leadership can only come up with syntactic sugaring – and this ranges from mosque pulpits to institutional reports to academic pundits selling their consciences on the prayer mat and amidst virtuous Hegelian Dialectic speeches on Islamophobia.
Our institutional corruption spanning the gamut from Mosques to NGOs to the Academy is so widespread that it has become almost invisible and incognizant like the air we breathe --- but it surrounds us no less. This corruption isn't like what most Muslims are used to in the East. To understand this intellectual corruption which is laden with Faustian pacts of the soul and cradled in Machiavellian omissions to keep the laity perpetual prisoners of the cave while the prison walls around us continue to close-in, click on the FBI's agent-education image below:

Caption An FBI video presentation titled “Militancy Considerations” measures the relationship between piety and violence among the texts of the three Abrahamic faiths [ the god's chosen people obviously coming out on top!!! ] As time goes on, the followers of the Torah and the Bible move from “violent” to “non-violent.” Not so for devotees of the Koran, whose “moderating process has not happened.” The line representing violent behavior from devout Muslims flatlines and continues outward, from 610 A.D. to 2010. In other words, religious Muslims have been and always will be agents of aggression. Watch FBI Presentation Video (click on image, alternate) artfully Hijacking Islam. See Islam vs. Secular Humanism and World Government by Zahir Ebrahim for its full implication. (Image source)
The roots of this graph in the FBI presentation are very distinguished and very deep-seated in doctrinal warfare. It is not merely some ad hoc “overreaction” to the “war on terror” against “militant Islam” by an overzealous state security apparatus' training program to keep the Americans safe from terrorists.
For instance, the late Samuel Huntington of Harvard University in his famous ode to reseeding new “doctrinal motivation” for the on-going exercise of Anglo-Saxon hegemony over the entire planet titled “The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order”, stated:
Some Westerners, including [ex] President Bill Clinton, have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists. Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise .... Islam is the only civilization which has put the survival of the West in doubt, and it has done that at least twice.” (pg. 209)
The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power. The problem for Islam is not the CIA or the US Department of Defense. It is the West, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the universality of their culture and believe that their superior, if declining, power imposes on them the obligation to extend that culture throughout the world. These are the basic ingredient that fuel conflict between Islam and the West.” (pg. 217)
The violent nature of these shifting relationships is reflected in the fact that 50 percent of wars involving pairs of states of different religions between 1820 and 1929 were wars between Muslims and Christians”. (pg. 210)
In 1990 Bernard Lewis, a leading Western scholar of Islam, analyzed 'The Roots of Muslim Rage,' and concluded: 'It should now be clear that we are facing a mood and a movement far transcending the level of issues and policies and the governments that pursue them. This is no less than a clash of civilizations – that perhaps irrational but surely historic reaction of an ancient rival against our Judeo-Christian heritage, our secular present, and the worldwide expansion of both. It is crucially important that we on our side should not be provoked into an equally historic but also equally irrational reaction against our rival.'” (pg. 213)
That “Judeo-Christian heritage” and 'The Roots of Muslim Rage,' is what is captured in the FBI “Militancy Considerations” training graph. Bernard Lewis of Princeton University further reconstituted Huntington's self-serving statistic for the “basic ingredient that fuel conflict between Islam and the West” in his post 9/11 ode to defending the West against “militant Islam” titled “Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror”:
... But Islam, like other religions, has also known periods when it inspired in some of its followers a mood of hatred and violence. It is our misfortune that we have to confront part of the Muslim world while it is going through such a period, and when most – though by no means all - of that hatred is directed against us.” (pg. 25)
Terrorism requires only a few. Obviously the West must defend itself by whatever means will be effective. But in devising means to fight the terrorist, it would surely be useful to understand the forces that drive them.” (pg. xxxii)
That's all that the FBI is doing – implementing Bernard Lewis' prescription. The FBI, like all the rest of the Western states security and war-mongering apparatuses of their vast interlocking military-industrial-academe-media-intelligence complex, are defending the West against the motivations outlined for them by the god's chosen peoples:
For more than a thousand years, Islam provided the only universally acceptable set of rules and principles for the regulation of public and social life. Even during the period of maximum European influence, in the countries ruled or dominated by European imperial powers as well as in those that remained independent, Islamic political notions and attitudes remained a profound and pervasive influence. In recent years there have been many signs that these notions and attitudes may be returning, albeit in modified form, to their previous dominance.” (pg. 13)
But we already knew all about that imminent threat of the Islamofascists trying to take over the West. Since the day FBI knocked on my door in 2003 as the bombing of Iraq was underway to protect the Americans from Sadaam Hussein's WMDs, I knew that by first hand experience.
Which begs the question, why make such information public? The intelligence apparatuses will do what they are chartered or ordered to be doing – what purpose does such an outright big lie depicted in the FBI graph serve by making it public? Never mind the Christian Crusades; never mind Christian Zionism and Talmudic Zionism devastating Palestine to Iraq; never mind the World Wars which saw Christians killing Christians, and Christians killing Jews, all financed by the Jewish Wall Street and the Jewish banksters controlling the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States who sat in on the subsequent so called Peace Conferences to harvest the loot of the Balfour Declaration to orchestrate the Jewish State in Palestine in the name of Torah's god: “This country exists as the fulfillment of a promise made by God Himself.” [1] and “It is true God promised it to us. ... Our God is not theirs.” [2]; etceteras, who would buy into such an outright big lie in the West today? The majority of its public who 'United We Stand' with absurdities! This includes all the Muslims who stay silent like their Western counterparts, and labor under the same or different misconceptions.
Those who do not understand the psychological basis of doctrinal warfare, fear-mongering, and uncertainty-creation as essential ingredients of psyops and mass persuasion techniques for creating “revolutionary times” [3] as the most effective means of changing the lifestyle of an entire people, will never comprehend such matters which are driven entirely from the macro-social calculus of ushering in one-world government. Unless one understands all of that, that the Hard Road to World Order is paved in cold blood, one can neither understand this FBI training modality for its agents, nor the obedience training of Americans at airports. See the detailed Mighty Wurlitzer Report to comprehend its primal DNA. And read the two short articles Convince People of Absurdities and get them Acquiescing to Atrocities: The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science and ‘War on Terror’ is not about ‘Islamofascism’ – Please get with the real agenda you people! to understand how the blossoming tree of “imperial mobilization” is being constructed in baby steps using that very DNA of full spectrum psychological warfare and controlled “revolutionary times”.
Pick up Huntington's The Clash of Civilizations, and Bernard Lewis' Crisis of Islam, and read them both in the context and references outlined here and the absurd FBI graph will start making sense. Then pick up Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard and the concept of “doctrinal motivation” necessary for “imperial mobilization” will start making sense:
It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.” (pgs. 35-36)
Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. .... More generally, cultural change in America may also be uncongenial to the sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power. That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification.” (pgs. 211-212)
Compare all that book knowledge with the empirical reality, and Bertrand Russell's 1952 book The Impact of Science on Society will start appearing more self-servingly prophetic than Nostradamus:
There is, it must be confessed, a psychological difficulty about a single world government. The chief source of social cohesion in the past, I repeat, has been war; the passions that inspire a feeling of unity are hate and fear. These depend upon the existence of an enemy, actual or potential. It seems to follow that a world government could only be kept in being by force, not by the spontaneous loyalty that now inspires a nation to war.” (Ch. 2, pg. 37)
Muslims today are victimized twice:
  • First by the massa's “imperial mobilization” by way of deception, by dictatorship infliction, by bombardment and “democracy” and “revolution” infliction to bring freedoms from the same dictatorships, not to mention more neo-liberal debt enslavement for rebuilding what's destroyed while bringing neo-cons freedoms.
  • And second, by the subversion of our own Uncle Toms who keep us confused and un-enlightened by their shifting amalgams of myths, half-truths, omissions, mis-diagnosis, and red herrings.
Together they target us by total perception management, and thus control our behavior of full servitude by piece-meal conditioning, eventually leading to Pavlovian compliance to their every stimulus. Their dominant narratives is what informs us, cajoles us, frightens us, and that's how we end up 'United We Stand' with the Massa. If they say there is “Islamic terrorism”, we say there is “Islamic terrorism”. If they say 9/11 was the work of “jihadi Muslims”, if they say there is “global warming”, “peak oil”, “swine flu”, this and that global disaster, this and that galactic catastrophe, we not only echo the same, but naturally find ourselves inclined to act in accordance to that implanted fear. If such mantras come anointed with imposing IVY stamp of approval, the Nobel stamp of approval, lofty academic endorsement, so much more we believe in them, to the point that we even permit the state to molest us to keep us safe! The theories of psychological persuasion techniques in text-books exactly match the ground realities. Sounds rather prosaic – but empirically true nevertheless. This ought not to be surprising --- here is Aldous Huxley prognosticating it in 1962 at University of California-Berkeley:
You can do everything with bayonets except sit on them! If you are going to control any population for any length of time you must have some measure of consent. It’s exceedingly difficult to see how pure terrorism can function indefinitely. It can function for a fairly long time, but I think sooner or later you have to bring in an element of persuasion. An element of getting people to consent to what is happening to them. Well, it seems to me that the nature of the Ultimate Revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: that we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably always will exist, to get people actually to love their servitude! This is the, it seems to me the ultimate in malevolent revolution shall we say.’ — Aldous Huxley, 1962 speech at UC Berkeley, minute 04:06
Without our own self-study and due diligence, without skepticism to all that is presented to us, as the targets of villainous perception management and behavior control, we will continue to fall victim to the Uncle Toms who control all our institutions on behalf of the massa.
We have to by-pass our holy and pious chieftains and their institutions and become self-reliant both intellectually and physically, that means in thought as well as in lifestyle away from our pontiffs and chieftains, or else we shall continually be sold down the drain in the guise of their being our illumined “benefactors” and “peace-makers”. Holy Qur'an verse 2:11 even bears witness to that timeless empiricism --- but Plato predates it in his prescient similitude Myth of the Cave in The Republic by one thousand years!
Empowering the individual with deep knowledge in overarching contexts to instill deep system insights into the calculus of hegemony, is the only antidote for this full spectrum assault on the human mind which employs sophisticated psychological persuasion techniques of behavior control from cognitive to subliminal. We cannot lay out the parts like a motor mechanic and examine each one in isolation. We have to look at the entire system and understand its overall behavior as a function of its components and what role each plays in that overall system dynamics.
Such comprehension cannot be had in 15-second attention spans we have been weaned on. And nor by sitting like stupid gullible fools in pious or learned gatherings listening to Trojan Horses and other insipid fools and useful idiots planted among us and in our vaunted institutions – both religious and secular, as well in our academies and our governments. And nor can it be acquired by the feeble minded cowards and Uncle Toms who prefer to die many deaths for the pleasure of earning a good word and a paycheck from the massa. There is no external cure for Faustian pacts. The cure for that is solely within.
But for the rest more inclined to use an iota of commonsense and a modicum skepticism than stoned belief in authority to examine any matter, this heads-up contains essential knowledge you will not be given either at UC Berkeley, or Harvard, or Princeton, or by a Woodrow Wilson scholar or a Nobel laureate, or by the mercenaries and stooges heading CAIR or MCA, or ISNA, ICNA, AMA, CIA, ISI, MI6, CNN, ABC, NBC, BBC, NYT, and the myriad other alphabet soups throughout the world under the iron grip of the Mighty Wurlitzer. Yet this knowledge is entirely public information, only waiting to be read and studied as containing the master blueprints for the global governance system being built openly. Its success lies in obscurity by design – since no one “respectable” goes there. Just look at the two recent reports emanating from CAIR and American Progress in collaboration with University of California-Berkeley, both belaboring the obviousness of Islamophobia like the autumn leaves, but not disclosing to the public what is made deliberately obscure by their criminal conspiracy of omission. None of them relate matters to the Hard Road to World Order... but they will all be eagerly doing so ex post facto, and awarded Pulitzers and other lofty intellectual anointments for their eruditeness!
It is a crafty red herring and calculated subversion for Muslim institutions (led by glorified Uncle Toms and useful idiots) to protest the fabricated symptoms of the disease while ignoring the root cause of the disease: The Diabolical Hijacking of Islam for Imperial Mobilization by god's chosen peoples!
Now we can finally return to the question asked above to lend some forensic insight into the matter: Why did the FBI make its 'Islamology' presentation public which is entirely drawn from the war-mongering Jews Bernard Lewis', Samuel Huntington's, Zbigniew Brzezinski's et. al.'s decades old craftsmanship for a viable “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” to seed the propagandistic explanation for a New Pearl Harbor”, and subsequently sustain “imperial mobilization” to its logical conclusion as disclosed above? It further begs the question that for those eloquently condemning it, including Muslim organizations like CAIR, myriad other civil rights and human rights organization including the Senators who Blast FBI Terror-Training ‘Lies’, Senator Joe Lieberman, the bastion of Zionist Jewry in the United States Senate, why is the forensic articulation of what's disclosed here by a mere plebeian so difficult for them to express?
It ain't rocket science – or is it? No, it is only Machiavellian political science!
Think Hegelian Dialectic of Dissent ( http://tinyurl.com/Hegelian-Dialectic-Dissent ) fabricated from bogus lies whose main purpose is to re-justify the core-axioms of empire couched in WWF wrestling, and the fog lifts instantly! One team invents the lies, the other condemns it, and it is orchestrated by the same coterie who come away from it re-emphasizing the core “doctrinal motivation”, the threat of “al-Qaida”, at the expense of their own intelligence apparatus which is only following the directives given to it by the State. This is what the most hawkish king of war-mongering neo-con Zionist Jews in the US Senate averred, playing WWF wrestling with his brethren with a chutzpah which only the god's chosen people who have moved from “violent” to “non-violent” following their Torah can muster:
'“There is no room in America for the lies, propagated by al-Qaida, that the U.S. is at war with Islam, or the lie propagated by others that all Muslims support terrorism,” Sen. Joe Lieberman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, told Danger Room.' WIRED, September 15, 2011
Examine the political science of it all today and not tomorrow when fait accompli of world government will make it a moot point which boogieman was myth, and which one was factual --- like the disclosure by the New York Times in 2008 of the Pentagon's Message Machine that its retired Generals diabolically led the three ring media circus to enact America's decimation of Iraq under obvious falsehoods. That belated admission after the NYT itself led that three ring circus did not restore to Iraq its shattered tabula rasa with any more chutzpah than the admission by the Iraq Study Group in 2005, mostly populated by the same hectoring hegemons who led the mantra of WMD in the first place including Bernard Lewis, that all the intelligence on Iraq's WMDs were indeed false!
Tomorrow, many of the myths and “doctrinal motivations” taken as gospel truths today will similarly be shown to be the output of the Mighty Wurlitzer's message machine with a simple narrative “oops”! This is already presaged in The Report from Iron Mountain where the motivational source for many fear-mongering modern myths can be found. Don't wait until tomorrow when you hear it from your favorite pontiffs and nod your head in that all-knowing state of servitude that has become the pathetic characteristic of Muslims and all the rest of the 'untermenschen' worldwide. Evaluate the many Hegelian Dialectics today, argue these today, challenge your pontiffs today, disrobe and unmask them today, understand the motivations behind their Message Machine today which comes layered in sophisticated political science as the vile mechanics for a system of global governance that is being deceptively ushered in under different guises of fabricated “revolutionary times”. This system is being wrought by a people all of whom evidently have multiple Ph.Ds. in deception. The culprits are visible to even the most blind in the saintly FBI graph itself.
And ultimately, if you deem this knowledge not worthy as it still only comes from the lowly pen of a most ordinary plebeian, and not from your favorite pontiff, throw it away.
Thank you.

FBI Muslims and Militancy Considerations --- Heads up By Zahir Ebrahim 11/11

Letter to Hamid Algar inviting comment on Laleh Bakhtiar's Translation of the Holy Qur'an By Zahir Ebrahim

 
To: Hamid Algar, Professor of Persian and Islamic Studies. Near Eastern Studies and Persian Literature. Islamic culture, religion, philosophy, Sufism and the Qur'an. Department of Near Eastern Studies, UC Berkeley algar@berkeley.edu
From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
Subject: Translation of the Holy Qur'an
Date: Sat, Sep 3, 2011 at 1:31 PM
Dear Prof. Algar,
AsSalaam o Alekum.
I am forwarding you the following letter which I just wrote to Mr. Ali Quli Qarai. It cites your endorsement of his English translation of the Holy Qur'an and notes your silence on another translation by someone whom you are surely more familiar with as a scholar of Islam than I as just merely an ordinary plebeian.
And I would like to make the same humble request to you as I make to Mr. Ali Quli Qarai. As someone who has benefited from your imposing work, having read some of them, your public comment on this matter is most pertinent. If you have already publicly commented on The Sublime Qur'an, I would be most grateful if you would kindly forward me your comment as I have been unable to locate it by google search.
Silence speaks volumes on many fronts. To me it speaks mainly of co-option in these times when Islam and Muslims are being assaulted on all fronts by way of deception, and with bombs, and not of profound wisdom of a sage living in ivory towers or detached from the mayhem. It matters little what else people speak on, or do, when they remain silent on what they must speak on and don't do – a truism you will surely agree with wholeheartedly.
I would send this letter to Dr Muhammad Legenhausen as well, the other person who is referenced in my letter to Ali Quli Qarai as having endorsed Mr. Quli's translation of the Holy Qur'an with glowing words – except that I have been unable to locate his email address. If you have his email address, I would be most grateful if you would share it with me or kindly forward this letter to him.
Thank you for your time. May Allah reward you generously for your strivings on the path of Haq.
Best wishes,
Zahir Ebrahim

Dear Mr. Ali Quli Qarai,
AsSalaam o Alekum.
I would like to invite your learned comment on my layman's opinion of the translation of the Holy Qur'an titled: The Sublime Quran, done by the well-known American-Iranian Psychologist and prolific translator of religious books into English, Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar, who has publicly declared her intentions to “bring reform to Islam”.
My layman's opinion in the form of a letter of critique written to Laleh Bakhtiar, is at this URL:
My letter written to The Sublime Quran's Distributor, Kazi Publication in Chicago, is at this URL:
My letter written to the respected American-Iranian scholar whom Laleh Bakhtiar acknowledged as her first mentor in the Preface of her translation “Seyyed Hossein Nasr for his spiritual presence in the life of this translator”, inviting his comment on the translation done by his own protégé, is at this URL:
As a translator of the Holy Qur'an yourself, and unfortunately I have not had the privilege of browsing it as I have not found a copy easy to acquire, your opinion in this matter will be most valuable.
Moreover, your publicly voiced comment on The Sublime Quran will be of far greater import to the public coming from another translator of the Holy Qur'an, than from an ordinary person.
I noticed that you sought, or were given unsolicited, terrific endorsements for your own translation of the Holy Qur'an by other scholars of Islam ( http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php?id=1389 ). That is great 'amr bil maroof'. What about 'nahin anil munkar' however when a situation calls for it? The stoned silence of scholars on this matter is not only disturbing, but outright condemning as well of pursuing self-interests and nothing more. The same scholars who wrote nice praise for your translation, Dr Muhammad Legenhausen, Prof. Hamid Algar, appear to be silent for Laleh Bakhtiar's translation – or at least I haven't been able to locate their comments on it. I hope you will be more forthright in your opinion – for scholars will surely be the first ones waiting in a long line to Account for every word they spoke, and did not speak by omission.
Finally, I would like to humbly invite your learned comment on my on-going study, being just an ordinary layman of course and not a scholar, of Why it is Easy to Hijack the Holy Qur'an. Here are the URLs for two parts completed thus far:

Zahir Ebrahim's response to Fear, Inc. The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America

From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
To: “Faiz Shakir, Vice President at American Progress, Editor-in-Chief of ThinkProgress.org and The Progress Report, B.A. degree in government from Harvard University and a J.D. degree from the Georgetown Law Center” fshakir@americanprogress.org
Subject: How Islamophobia is linked to Imperial Mobilization
Date: Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 5:13 PM
Dear Mr. Faiz Shakir,
Previously CAIR had issued a 68 page glossy report in May 2011 titled: Same Hate, New Target: Islamophobia and Its Impact in the United States January 2009-December 2010 in conjunction with UC Berkeley's Center for Race & Gender. That public report released with much fanfare by CAIR conveniently left out the roots of Islamophobia, describing only its rise and prevalence. My response to CAIR and to the CRG Director at UC Berkeley noted the omissions and demanded an explanation.
Now your organization americanprogress.org has issued a 70 page glossy report titled: Fear, Inc. The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America which has gone a tiny step further in documenting that it is deliberately cultivated, and of course as most of us already know, run by a bunch of errand boys and girls of the neo-cons. Yet your report too failed to link this cultivation of Islamophobia to "imperial mobilization", and to examining why these errand boys and girls are cultivating "Islamophobia" as the circus clowns of empire. There is no mention of the ringmasters either. This makes your 70-page document at best a "limited hangout".
The short article below examines what you have failed to examine despite the excellent reportage of facts in your report and the palpable conclusion which has already been empirical for over ten years. If what is stated in my article below is in error, please do feel free to offer correction. If it is not in error, I call upon you to address the linkages you have omitted in a revised report. As the Jewish proverb goes, a half truth is a full lie. We have had enough purveyors of half-truths. Let's have a some full truths for a change. It ain't rocket science - only political science. Anyone from Harvard cannot fail to recognize that fact.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,
Zahir Ebrahim

Zahir Ebrahim's response to Fear, Inc. The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America

Letter to S H Nasr on his silence on Laleh Bakhtiar's Translation of the Holy Qur'an

 
To: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, University Professor, The George Washington University msirat@gwu.edu
From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org
Subject: Your silence when Laleh Bakhtiar is selling her ignorant translation of the Holy Qur'an by drawing association to your name is silent endorsement
Date: Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 11:20 AM


Dear Dr. Nasr,
Assalaam Alekum,
The following letter was sent to Kazi Publications in Chicago, the distributors of Laleh Bakhtiar's translation of the Holy Qur'an titled The Sublime Quran. As you can glean in the letter, your evaluation of the translation is nowhere to be found. Your silence, and absence of challenge to the translation, is an endorsement by default in the mind of many people.
Therefore, I would like to request your public comment on her translation. As just an ordinary human being who has looked at the translation and found it not only wanting in fidelity to the original, but its author seemingly pursuing an agenda which by her own admission is to “bring reform to Islam”, what worldly considerations hold an expert back when the word of God perfected by the statement 5:3 of the Holy Qur'an and revered by 1.6 Billion Muslims, is targeted for "reform"? As you are well aware, that agenda is shared by Daniel Pipes, Bernard Lewis, and the late Samuel Huntington et. al., all circus clowns beating the Hegelian Dialectic "militant Islam" vs. "moderate Islam" to “bring reform to Islam”. The import of this shared message is deconstructed in my article: Hijacking the word 'Islam' for Mantra Creation.
Please review the following correspondence with Kazi Publishers and you will realize why your silence must be broken. When scholars of Islam remain silent, us poor plebeians have to take up their slack with limited or zero impact. As you are well aware, the world today bows before “experts” – even when they spew garbage. The Muslim condition today is the most deplorable of any time in history – our pulpits are today almost universally occupied by such “experts”. In that milieu, when genuine knowledgeable experts speak, their opinion carries far for people pay attention – just as they pay attention to useful idiots and mercenaries. When a genuine expert's name is used to draw associations and credibility to oneself, the expert's silence is aiding and abetting those who do so. And when such scholars also remain silent when the religion is being abused, they condemn themselves by their silence. The test of integrity is daily, constant, and al Furqan invites us to this test daily, constantly, by [inter alia] nahin anil munkar and amar bil maroof.
Most Sincerely,
Zahir Ebrahim
