Mourning and a call for justice

Posted by: Fedwa Wazwaz under Violence, Education and literacy, Continuing education, Government Updated: July 3, 2014 - 7:55 AM

"Do you construct on every elevation a sign, amusing yourselves, And
take for yourselves palaces and fortresses that you might abide
eternally?  And when you strike, you strike as tyrants."
(Quran 26:128-130)
 



Hebron

Twenty years ago, during the morning prayers of the holy month of Ramadan, my own nephews were praying in the Ibrahmi Mosque when Baruch Goldstein stormed the Mosque and started to shoot at Palestinians while kneeling in prayer.  Their classmates fell dead on top of them.  This was in the town of Hebron, known to Palestianians as Al Khaleel.  It is named after a title given to Prophet Abraham, which means, the Friend of God.  I will refer to this town later.

This is a town where mainly Palestinian Arabs live, but Israel has placed the most extremist of armed settlers in their midst, making life unbearable for them so a few hundred settlers can reside.

Racism

Over a decade ago, Muhammad al-Durra, a Palestinian child was killed by Israeli soldiers.  His death was recorded and the recording went viral. 

SEE:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arRgkXDLwlM

Before Al-Durra’s death, Israel had enjoyed the anonymity of the Palestinians and the invisibility of their suffering for decades - and felt embarrassed at the exposure of its policies before the world. 

The blame game began by pointing fingers at Palestinian “gun men.” Then, al-Durra was “caught in the crossfire.” Then al-Durra was depicted as a “trouble-maker” or a “mischievous” child who deserved this punishment for his “mischievous” behavior.  When the projection games to protect the Israeli image failed, the question fell like a bombshell upon the world.

Israeli propagandists asked the world, “What was he doing there?” What was al-Durra, a Palestinian child doing in his hometown traveling with his father shopping together during the day?
 

Context

Israel likes to present itself as a helpless state and its armed “Israeli civilians” surrounded by “hostile” Palestinians or Arabs.    Yet, behind this false PR image, Israel is engaged in Arab home demolitions, cruel torture, imprisonment of Arabs without charge or trial, land grabbing and illegal Jewish-only settlements connected to Israel with Jewish-only bypass roads slicing Arab land into Bantustans.

Palestinians are resisting Israel not out of hatred for Jews. The resistance is because Israel was built on massacres, ruins, graves and ethnic cleansing of Arabs which continue to this day. It was built by terrorists and war criminals whom Israelis freely choose as prime ministers.  Yesterday, Yasser Arafat was the scapegoat when things went wrong.  Today it is Hamas.

However, Israel deliberately implants the most radical of settlers in the midst of Arab towns as part of an ethnic cleansing campaign.  These Jewish-only settlements which are connected to each other and Israel proper are growing and illegal under international law.  Their growth results in continuous demolition of Arab homes and theft of Arab land, which result in the disconnection of Arab villages from each other. 

The presence of the armed settlers has resulted in the deaths of many children over the years.  Palestinians were robbed of their humanity and accused of “sending [their] children out to die” to “score media points.”

Recent events

The world did not call out this blatant racism.  They looked the other way, until the violence which Palestinians endure daily touched the lives of the occupier.  Then the world paid attention.

Recently, three Israeli teens: Gil-Ad Shaer, 16, Naftali Fraenkel, 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19 – were found dead in the West Bank village of Halhul.  They were missing since June 12 as they were visiting family in Hebron.  This is the town I mentioned in the beginning, where Israeli settlers annually pay celebratory pilgrimages to Goldstein's shrine.  

My relatives in Al Khaleel, or Hebron cannot visit our family in East Jerusalem, but these Israeli teens are able to freely visit their relatives in Hebron.

In a revenge attacks, three Palestinians: 7-year-old Ali al-Awoor,15-year-old Mohammed Dodeen, and 17-year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair were killed.

Abu Khudair was standing next to the masjid waiting for dawn-break prayer. He was abducted by Israeli settlers, beaten and stabbed to death, after which they set his body on fire and threw his charred remains to the side of the road. He was the 10th Palestinian killed by the Israeli soldiers or right-wing extremists since the Israeli teens were missing. 

I mourn their death as well as the Israeli teens as we should mourn all lost lives. Yet, we must demand the world change the conditions that nurture the violence in the region for our mourning to have meaning.

Let us not forget to also mourn the lives of 1,384 Palestinian children killed by the Israeli soldiers since 2000, according to the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem. That’s 1 Palestinian child killed every 3 to 4 days. 

Striking without mercy


Every life is sacred. 

Recently, after the 3 Israeli teens were found dead, the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu says that Hamas “will pay” for these latest deaths.  As usual, the entire city of Gaza is under heavy bombardment.  Over the years, striking Hamas has become a cover for striking like tyrants at Palestinians' civilian towns, killing hundreds of civilians, without a strong leadership from the world community.

SEE: http://mondoweiss.net/2014/06/israeli-netanyahu-responsible.html

Currently, across the West Bank the Israeli army has sealed off entire towns, arrested more than 400 people, and raided over 100 homes and over 34 bombing raids hit Gaza. 

In the past, Israel used events such as violence by Palestinians against Israelis, to strike with a lack of mercy. We heard “put the fear of death into the Arabs,” “mow them down,” and by Israeli Deputy Defense Minister, Matan Vilnai, who once threatened Palestinians with a “shoah,” which means holocaust.

Israel has played well the projection game and keeps hiding behind a Palestinian scapegoat to justify the occupation and the systematic ethnic cleansing campaign.  However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not Nelson Mandela.  He is not a man of peace.

In 1989, in a speech at Bar-Ilan University, stated:

"Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories."

Since then, Netanyahu has not renounced his extremism or his love of violence.  Several years ago, in 2006, Netanyahu commemorated the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the headquarters of British rule, which killed 92 people.  According to Netanyahu, terrorism is bad if you are the underdog and okay if you are not.

SEE:  http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2006/jul/21/sixtyyearssincethekingdav

The projection games that Israeli government has been playing on the world stage need to come to an end.

We cannot fight terrorism by turning a blind eye to the occupier as they oppress and violate every human and international law. And we cannot fight terrorism by justifying cruel measures against the weak collectively for wrongly resorting to violence to resist the occupation and the oppression of the occupier.  The world has to end this culture of impunity, and Israel has to abide by rules of law.

To monitor the situation follow the below:

Jewish Voices for Peace

“All lives are precious.
We refuse to mourn only the deaths of Palestinians, or only the deaths of Israelis. But that does not mean we can ignore the enormous power difference between Israelis and Palestinians, or pretend it is just a ‘cycle of violence’ with no root cause or context. Each of these horrific incidents that harms both peoples happen in the context of an ongoing occupation, itself inherently a system of daily violence. And it is a system that by its very nature puts the lives, dignity, and human rights of all in jeopardy.”

Distinguishing free speech from hate

Posted by: Fedwa Wazwaz under Society, Education and literacy, Continuing education, Government, Politics Updated: June 24, 2014 - 8:43 PM

"People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use."
--Soren Kierkegaard

It is the same story.  

Around the country, speakers are warning Americans about the danger of Islam and the threat of the Muslims within.  Islam maligned, Prophet Muhammad attacked and the speakers threaten lawsuits if they are denied the space to spew their venom in an unchallenged manner.

They argue this is "freedom of speech." To such individuals, regurgitating your dirty saliva without any critical thinking or understanding of the subject matter at hand is free speech.  Yet a society that values freedom of speech is best known by the presence of the voices of its minorities and politically weak in the public square. To my knowledge, the Muslims in many European countries and here remain mainly marginalized.

There is a strong social pressure for Muslims to speak the right way, breathe the right way, sneeze the right away or fear being accused of extremism or terrorism activity.

Let us play an imagination game.

Imagine in your mind's eye the following cartoon: a Muslim with a thought bubble that reads, "What is freedom of speech?" The Muslim figure is looking at two prevailing images from Western countries with Muslim minorities: One image shows some Westerners bashing Muslims, Islam and Prophet Muhammad, and another image shows law enforcement persecuting, spying, bashing and censoring Muslims for unpopular opinions and speech.  In the first image a crowd surrounds the speaker attacking Islam and Muslims, and in the second image a drone is aiming at the Muslim speaker spewing venom at non-Muslims.  What makes one speech socially and legally acceptable under free speech and another as in the case of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen, grounds for a drone attack for his inflammatory speech against the US?

Let us continue the imagination game.

Imagine a Muslim speaker who claims that American Christians and Jews "will kill your children" and that "we are in war with Crusaders," was invited to speak at Bagley High School. 

Imagine the speaker incited the audience such that some neighbors felt endangered and decided to attend to challenge the speaker with their attendance and "Love Thy Neighbor" signs.

Imagine said speaker stopped his presentation and singled these people out, demanded they leave or threatened to throw them out.

Imagine the incited crowd yells, 'Get out' and 'You weren't invited.' 

Imagine people getting up to their feet and moving towards them to lay hands on them and kick them out.

Imagine one Muslim upset at the Christian and Jewish presence, later approached the officer and asked: "Can I borrow your gun?"

Imagine one member describes the event as "The audience doesn't know where the line is, or that a line even exists. When [Muslim speaker] works a crowd, he does so skillfully, provoking responses and goading reactions. After listening to fear mongering messages the previous night, such as 'Christians are destroying the world,' 'Jews are coming to kill your children and grandchildren,' 'The day will come and Christian and Jews in America will have the upper hand, and they will kill your children for not eating what is liked. For not eating the lawful foods,' and 'Killing you is a small matter.'

Are we as Americans in favor of such speech?  Are we in favor of the views of Anwar al-Alwaki and other Muslims who spew such venom?  Would we be open to our schools allowing such views to incite crowds?

Noam Chomsky said, "If you're in favor of free speech, then you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise. Otherwise, you're not in favor of free speech."

The US killed Anwar al-Alwaki, and his children with drones.  They did not commit acts of terrorism, but al-Awlaki was guilty of spewing hatred against America.

So I would like to ask Bagley High School, are you open to a Muslim speaker who spews venom towards Christians and Jews?  I ask the Police and Law Enforcement in Bagley - had this been a Muslim speaker spewing venom against Jews and Christians - would you have handled this situation the same way?

I ask the radio stations and media in Bagley and around - had this been a Muslim speaker spewing venom against Christians and Jews - would you have favorably promoted the event on your station and paper?  Are Muslim voices that you despise heard? This demonstrates whether it was hate or freedom that is motivating speakers and the audience.

I ask the FBI who is constantly asking us to keep our eyes and ears open to questionable behavior by Muslims and to aid them in preventing terrorism - had this been a Muslim speaker spewing venom - would you have remained silent?  

According to Islamic teachings, freedom of speech is a valuable concept when embraced with a spirit engaged in the search for truth and is not laced with insults and vulgarity. For example, Islam forbids Muslims from cursing or attacking other faiths. Islamic teachings also prohibit sitting in the company of those who ridicule and mock God or the prophets.  There is no value or critical thinking in such speech.

In the Qur'an, one hears arguments raised by Satan toward God as well as the objections toward Prophet Mohammed, upon him peace and blessings, by the early Makkans. God does not censor these voices but responds to the charges raised.

Satan was given time till Judgment Day to prove that God's ennoblement of human beings over him was a mistake.  If you are for free speech, then you are for an equal platform for those you disagree with, who oppose or challenge your views and ideas, openly and transparently.  

Speech that seeks to incite a crowd and rage at any opposing voice and muzzle everyone who can respond and challenge their argument - is not free speech, but hate.  

In addition, in the Quran we are told of a conversation between Prophet Solomon, upon him peace, and the Queen of Sheba.  The Queen of Sheba was of a different faith, different gender, and different ethnicity, in other words, the "other."  When a subject of Prophet Solomon shares with him negative news regarding the Queen, Prophet Solomon responds with a call for verification and investigation.  He respectfully writes to the Queen and engages her directly, openly and transparently.

(Solomon) said: "Soon shall we see whether thou hast told the truth or lied!  "Go thou, with this letter of mine, and deliver it to them: then draw back from them, and (wait to) see what answer they return"...  (The queen) said: "Ye chiefs! here is delivered to me - a letter worthy of respect. (Quran 27: 27-29)

When a crowd is easily incited by negative comments on the "other" and fails to accept its responsibility to verify, investigate, and engage openly and transparently, then that is not freedom of speech, but hate.

The quotes shared above in the imagination game were not the quotes of a Muslim speaker; rather, they are the quotes of Usama K. Dakdok, a Christian speaker, who came to Bagley, Minnesota this past weekend to warn Minnesotans about the "disease of Islam."  I changed the quotes to help us understand that were similar quotes to be said by a Muslim toward non-Muslims, we would not be so open and receptive to such speech and we would not call it free speech.  We would easily recognize it as hate speech.

SEE:  Three-day Bagley Islamophobe event turns nasty as crowd harasses Muslim woman at high school

I do not ask for the US to hit Dakdok with a drone, but why is al-Awlaki hit with a drone, while Dakdok and others are allowed to speak in public schools or spaces under the banner of "freedom of speech?"  That is not imagination, but reality.

SEE: US cited controversial law in decision to kill American citizen by drone

The issue for me is not that Dakdok and others like him are allowed to speak, but the platform in which they speak is a platform where Muslims are marginalized, mocked and silenced.  It is a platform devoid of critical thinking, investigation, transparency, and verification.  It confuses feelings with facts, projection with analysis and promotes a demented understanding of one another, which creates an atmosphere that is unhealthy for Muslims and all citizens in Bagley, Minnesota and America at large.

Shaykh Muhammad Al-Ninowy was invited to the Twin Cities by Muslim Volunteers to fulfill one of the group's main objectives: promoting tolerance, peace, mercy and understanding within the Muslim community and with people of other faiths.

Shaykh Al-Ninowy acquired knowledge in many fields of the Islamic sciences.  He particularly specializes in the fields of Hadeeth (sayings and actions of Prophet Muhammad) and Tawheed (Islamic monotheism). Besides a strong knowledge in Islamic sciences and disciplines, he is also a scholar on Islamic spirituality. 

The group came together and discussed topics that our community is in need of, and has planned a few events to benefit the Minnesota community.  We would like to invite you to the following:


May 17th at 7pm - 9pm

A Respectful Muslim-Christian Dialogue about Drones and Violence

Posted by: Fedwa Wazwaz under Society, Violence, Education and literacy, Continuing education Updated: May 7, 2014 - 8:01 PM

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer.  It sings because it has a song" 
-Chinese Proverb

The Minnesota Council of Churches has a program called, Respectful Conversations which opens the doors to communicate across difference on areas of disagreement.  The program tries to frame the topic and design some questions for attendees to meet with trained facilitators, to have a conversation in a spirit of empathy for those with there is strong disagreement. 

If you are interested in a Respectful Conversation to bless your community, contact Jerad at (612) 230-3211.

Since the start of the project, MCC had over 1500 people throughout Minnesota who have gathered together for a Respectful Conversation on important, often divisive issues in our community. This month MCC will hold their first one in an Islamic Center!  Now is your chance to join the conversation as participants from the Islamic Center of Minnesota and the Minnesota Council of Churches adopt the Respectful Conversation model, a method of discussion promoted by Minnesota Council of Churches and designed not to change minds, but soften hearts.

In conversation with MCC, we have chosen a conversation about Drones and Violence.  

Conversations across differences and disagreement can sometimes be emotional and challenging, pick-a-side and fight-it-out discussions that leave us feeling worse about the people we disagree with, and sometimes worse about ourselves. But there is a way to talk that feels open, honest and impartial, where you can actually be heard and learn about the people with whom you disagree.  

We have designed some questions that we will use to help us explore this topic across our differences and disagreements.  We will share the questions with participants at the conversation itself, to allow each the experience of searching for themselves for the answer, and to build empathy.

Join us for refreshments and discussion and RSVP today!

Please read the this article on Respectful Conversations and see this video for further information.

Prophets, Patriarchs, & People of Promise!

Posted by: Fedwa Wazwaz under Society, Education and literacy, Continuing education Updated: April 21, 2014 - 6:41 AM

"It is not for the swan to teach eaglets to sing."
-French & Danish Proverb

The Minnesota Council of Churches and the Islamic Center of Minnesota began a dialogue series called "Prophets, Patriarchs, & People of Promise!"

We had a dialogue on Abraham, the Angels, and Adam and Eve, upon them peace and blessings.  Our February dialogue was on Prophet Muhammad, upon him peace and blessings, and one of our speakers was Dr. Terrance Nichols who recently passed away.  It was quite a shock to hear of his passing.

Those who knew Dr. Nichols, remember him for his kindness and being a great pioneer in interfaith relations.  His talk on Prophet Muhammad, upon him peace and blessings, was extremely respectful.  He welcomed the dialogue series on the Prophets, and asked me to include Prophet Moses, upon him peace and blessings, as well.  It was sad to hear of his recent death.

In March, our dialogue explored Prophet David, upon him peace and blessings.  We had three speakers from the three Abrahamic faith community to explore his life and mission.  At the end of the program, some attendees were surprised that Muslims believed in the Biblical Prophets.

We continue this Sunday, April 27th, after Christians celebrated Easter on a dialogue of Jesus.  

Who is Jesus?  

Maybe it depends on who you ask…

Join us April 27 as we ask two well-respected local leaders familiar with the question. 

Their answers may well surprise you.

Dan Collison is Senior Pastor of First Covenant Church, Minneapolis, a Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research Fellow, key organizer of the Minneapolis Multi-Faith Network, and the President of the East Downtown Council business Association in Downtown Minneapolis. He received a Doctoral degree in Ministry from Fuller Seminary (CA), a Master’s degree in Divinity from Bethel Seminary (MN), and a Bachelor’s degree from The Eastman School of Music (NY). Before becoming a pastor, Dan—and his wife, Holly—ran an adult foster care home for men with developmental disabilities where he learned the importance and rewards of servanthood.

Owais Bayunus originally from Pakistan, has traveled and lived in several Muslim countries from where he has gathered fresh information about Islam and the lives of Prophets of Gods and their meaning from the original sources. After graduating from Cornell, where he was first introduced to interfaith teachings, and as former President of the Islamic Center of Minnesota, and chairman of Interfaith Dialog, he has spoken several times on the life of Jesus (pbuh) and Mary, in Colleges, Schools and religious institutions in USA and Overseas. He has also written several articles on the life of this very remarkable person in the history of the World, revered by the adherents of both, the Worlds largest religion Christianity and the second largest religion Islam.

For those who cannot attend, below is an edited version of an article I wrote in the past.  

According to Islamic teachings:

Jesus, son of Mary, peace and blessings upon them, is a revered religious figure and the bedrock of Christianity. He also is a venerated figure in Islam, the faith of some 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide.

Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him, said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus, the son of Mary, peace and blessings upon him. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”

Like Christians, Muslims believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, upon him be peace, and in his miracles. Jesus’ life and mission are mentioned in eleven chapters of the Qur’an. A few of the chapters are titled: Maryam (Mary the mother of Jesus); Imran (noble family of Jesus), and Ma’ida (the Last Supper). Jesus, upon him be peace, is glorified in the Qur’an and is referred to as “the Messiah,” “a Word of God,” and “a Sign of God.”

Muslims regard Jesus, upon him be peace, as one of the mightiest messengers of God. He and his supporter, John the Baptist, and John’s father, Zachariah, are two other prophets of God and are of an unbroken noble lineage going back to the patriarch of monotheism, Abraham. Peace and blessings upon them all.

His miraculous birth began when his maternal grandmother, Hanna, who was barren, prayed for a child to devote to God’s service. God answered her prayer by giving her Mary. The Quran calls Mary “the most honored woman among all nations.”

When Mary, upon her be peace, matured, Archangel Gabriel came to her and said: “‘O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter, and of (the company of) those nearest to God.’ “

Being a chaste virgin, Mary could not comprehend this news.

Gabriel comforted her by explaining that, when God wishes to create anything, He says, “Be,” and it is. Muslims find similarities between Jesus’ birth and that of Adam, peace and blessings upon them, who was created without a father or mother. 

Jesus’ miraculous birth was a sign to people of the spiritual world who understood the spirit of the Divine Law.  As Jesus, upon him peace, said in the Bible - he did not come to destroy the Divine Law, but to fulfil it, holistically.

The Laws of God were not meant for those in power to dominate the weak, but to protect the weak from the exploitation of the strong. During Jesus’ time, the laws of God were divorced from the spirit of God. The Laws became an end instead of a means to nurture hearts and aid humanity in their worship of God.

Like every woman, Mary, upon her be peace, suffered during childbirth, but her suffering was compounded by her fear of how she would explain her pregnancy to her noble family. Muslims believe Jesus, peace and blessings upon him, performed his first miracle in the cradle by defending his mother’s honor to her family and people.

Muslims do not believe in original sin or that Jesus’ death was atonement for our sins. Rather, Muslims believe Jesus’ mission was to repair the misapplication and abuse of the Divine Law, and complement the legalism of the Torah and the prevalent materialism at the time with humility and spirituality, which were missing in his time.

Like many prophets who were empowered by miracles to suit their time and circumstances, Jesus, upon him be peace, was empowered by God to communicate divinity not only in words but by many miracles as well. Jesus, the son of Mary, upon him be peace, said, “God has given me the power to give life to the dead, sight to the blind, sound to the deaf; but He did not give me the power to heal the fool of his foolishness.”

Muslims believe after plots were made to kill Jesus, upon him be peace, he was not crucified but raised to the Heavens like the Biblical figures Enoch and Elijah. It may surprise many to know that Muslims await the second coming of Jesus, this time he will come back again as a just ruler, like Moses and Muhammad, peace and blessings upon them.  He will marry, have children and lead a war against the oppressors on earth and die a natural death.

Although there are differences between the Muslim and Christian view of Jesus, upon him be peace, the Qur’an repeatedly guides Muslims not to dispute with other monotheists over matters of doctrine. 

Please join us this coming Sunday and bring your questions to our speakers.
