Assalamu alaikum,

A good study of the phenomenon akhi Sheikh Shariff describes is:

Postmodernism and the Other: The New Imperialism of Western Culture, by Ziauddin Sardar. Pluto Press, 1998.

No problem. I am here to teach the ignorants of their own history.

If the Arabs have been practicing bigotry and racism - Why you think they 'liberated' Jews in Spain (711 CE), and then in Palestine (1186 CE)?

And I would not mention 'skullcap' this time.

For your ‘enlightenment’ I suggest you buy one of these books:

 

  1. ‘African Presence in Early America’, by Ivan Van Sertima

  3. ‘Deeper Roots’, by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick.



Quick searches on Google suggest that these books are merely about blacks and muslims in the Americas before Colombus. Nothing about Native genocide.

As far your ‘link’ is concerned – If I keep believing what the Zionists’ (Mossad, CIA, etc.) propagandist throw on me – We would have found more WMDs in Iraq than they have in Israel – right?


Are you saying the HNN article is written by Mosad? And what does that have to do with WMDs and Iraq?

Do you know the definition of 'Native'? Based on this dumb logic - only the white and non-Muslims could be 'Natives'!

And what your Google said about'Deeper Roots'? Doesn't it mention in the first chapter the same figures I quoted in the first place?

Are you saying the HNN article is written by Mosad? And what does that have to do with WMDs and Iraq?

Is the US court accept a proven liar as a genuine witness? It could be in Israel, but I am not sure about that.

Guilt by association, Yusuf? I expected better. The same website has links to Matt Yglesias, Juan Cole, Josh Marshall, etc., but maybe they're poison to muslims, too. You tell me. Pipes is a severe critic of muslims, just as the others are (often) severe critics of US policy, but all of them are articulate and informative and it's common in US websites to group disparate views together for contrast and fairness.

If Pipes is poison and every website that links to Pipes is poison and every website that links to them is poison, then pretty soon the whole internet is offlimits. Censorship doesn't work.
