What is wrong with some 5 or 6 Muslims out of the 12,000+ I communicate with?
Even if you find 12 to mess around, it will be still less than 1/100 th of 1% of Muslims in this group. I can take 6 more people to attempt to tear me down.
I have nothing to gain from this work, in fact, I could make money like everyone else working, instead I have chosen this path. I am simply doing what needs to be done, none of this will benefit me. Prophet Muhammad had said (I do not use the word OUR PROPHET - because he is not ours, he belongs to the whole universe and I don't intend to reduce him to Muslim exclusive) good deed is like sowing a seed, which benefits others when it becomes a tree and bears shade or fruit, it was intended for.
Cant' the 1/100th of 1% of Muslims understand the simple word "focus".
# 1 No matter whose birthday it is, the kids want it to be theirs. It is the “me, me, me” attitude that children demand. Some adults still live in that stage.
# 2 In a large group if some one mentions ten names, the “me, me, me” adults complain that their name was not recited in the same breath.
# 3 No matter what the topic is their concern is what they are interested in. When we are talking about a certain subject, we have to remain focused on it and not talk about 50 other things, each thing must be dealt separately. Palestine issue should not be a part of one issue; it is a full time issue in itself and must be reserved for it.
# 4 If I list the atrocities, massacres and genocides of the world, can you write a 600 word article, listing all of them, and still write the article? Better, yet can you recite all of them in one breath, in one sentence? Guess what, if you miss one due to the length of your breath, some one will complain.
We need to focus, you are acting no different than the same percent of Jews who quickly jump with the "Anti-Semitism" rhetoric even if some one sneezes in Europe. That's how bad the 1/100th of 1% of Muslims are in my list of Muslims. They are significant and that is why I address them, instead of ignoring them.
Isn't this one of the reasons we cannot move forward?
We are hung up with petty stuff?
Let's look at the big picture and not get entangled with small stuff.
In all the instances mentioned above, the adult babies are hung up with their need. Now let’s take a look at the following comments that came when I wrote about the 9/11.
Here was response to a few ugly comments
a few are non-publishable
My Commitment remains to bring a positive change, a positive contribution from Muslim Americans in uniting us, the Americans in adversity.
Finding the truth is also our responsibility and indeed, I supported an even where the videos and discussions of 9/11 were carried out whole day at a college campus in Plano.(None of these jumpers see this)
God has sent this opportunity to present ourselves in a positive light and Insha Allah, we will achieve it. The only ones I have to struggle with are Muslims, every one wants us to get on a level playing field, it is us, who hold back. Had the French been a part of the society, they would not have seen what they are seeing today.
May Allah's mercy be upon you and release you from anger and give you the
freedom from ill-will in this holy month of Ramadan.
These were the comments from a Muslim:
"go fuck yourself. Take me off your list. 911 was an inside job you bastard" - ztminhas
"Hey shit face, if you want to dedicate something to Why don't you work on this" - anonymous
Even my friend Dr. Jamil talks about the issue of Muslim suffering in one breath. No Dr. Jamil, it is a separate topic in itself.
Every one of us is driven by our interests - you have your own and mine is Islam and co-existence. You and I can do only so much with the given amount of time we have in a day. I know you and I both put nearly 25 hours a week for serving humanity. How many of us do that? I am not talking about doing the selfish things like praying and fasting, I am talking about doing things for the benefit of others.
The attitude of Pluralism originated in Islam and thank God more and more people are unraveling that. Prophet Muhammad was the first interfaith dialoguer that there was and that is my focus, although I have other things in my peripheral vision.
Those comments were received against the following article that went out to some 24,000 individuals around the globe of which ~12,000 are Muslims.

Have you please sent this mail to your dear friends like Br MikeGhouse who are blindly following the dictates of Government version without blinking their eyes. It was a preplanned TRAGEDY committed by MUSAD/CIA/Zionist agents on innocent American people to build their momentum against Muslims, Islam, capture their oil resources and kill the "probability" of emerging Islam as a political entity somewhere in the ME, specifically in Afghanistan
On the very day of this mishap I wrote an article: WHO DID IT and challenged President Bush that you are totally wrong in pointing your fingers to Osama and Afghanistan which was becoming the hub of Islamic Renaissance at that time. That paper is still available on my Website. It was published in The Muslims, NY.
It is a tragedy no doubt but we must have courage to ask the political parties of this country, the "all-powerful" Congress and UN to investigate the cause and its horrible effects of this tragedy, as rightly and la-mentally pointed out by you, through the International Court of Justice and persons like "Bush, Blare & Musharraf" responsible for this great Human tragedy must be hanged to death in front of "old" WTC otherwise the wounds will continue to bleed for centuries together and the people will commemorate the "drama" of this self-sustained tragedy till doomsday.

If US had hunted the attackers, there was absolutely no problem. It would have been the victory of justice. But the problem is that the US first decided without any substantial investigations that a few people guided by some masterminds currently living in Afghanistan were behind the attacks. And then they began the hnting, which remains unsuccessful till now with all the major "masterminds" still alive. But in the process, more than 2 million innocent Muslims have been killed. Now what is the way to give justice to these innocent Muslims? Should they also hunt their killers in the style of the US? Should they pray to God to punish the culprits?
It is nothing wrong to commemorate the victimsof 9/11. But please also find a moment to think and pray for those 2 million Muslims killed in the aftermath. It is good to condemn those that killed the 3000 people in New York. But please also find some time to condemn those that killed the 2 millions.
