US officials visit Gaza
whats-left-to-cut
In what is certainly a hopeful turn of events, Senator John Kerry and Reps Keith Ellison and Brian Baird visited Gaza last week, the first US government officials to do so in more than three years. The three were by all accounts absolutely shocked by the devastation that they witnessed, and Reps Ellison and Baird, at least, have issued very strong statements. Rep. Baird’s statement is printed below.
He writes, for instance: “what went on here, and what is continuing to go on, is shocking and troubling beyond words.”
In an extraordinary interview with the BBC [LISTEN TO IT HERE | BBC], Rep. Ellison describes his impression in terms strongly critical of Israel, reporting:
“Devastation. Devastation and destruction of facilities that to my mind were not legitimate military targets in any sense of the term, for example the American International School of Gaza was hit, and it is not in a crowded densely packed area, it is kind of out in the middle of a field almost, and it is hard to see how it represented any sort of threat to anyone.”

These are all very hopeful signs. The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation has put out an action alert asking (among other things) for people to thank Kerry, Baird and Ellison. [Article | EndTheOccupation.org]

An Israeli arrives at London’s Heathrow airport.

As he fills out the entry form, the immigration officer asks him:
“Occupation?”
The Israeli promptly replies: “No, no, just visiting!”

Safar 15 – Islamic Black History

Host: Ahmed Khalil

Discussion:

As the title of today’s show suggests we’re going to talk about black history from an Islamic perspective. Before we delve into this we need to think about if this is something that merits a Muslim perspective. The reality is that not only did Islam teach us about equality of all human beings regardless of their colour, which would be merit enough to give this topic some dedicated air time. But also, unfortunately racism and prejudice is still very much a Jaahily relic that manifests itself in the attitudes, actions, and words of many Muslims until this day. This of course has nothing to do with what Islam teaches us. In fact the prophet peace be upon him would condone the racist statements that early Muslim converts would utter in reference to the first Muathin of the Muslims who was of East African Decent.

The History of Islam in Africa (by Sulayman Nyang):

How Islam Made it’s way to North America in modern history: 30% of African slaves were Muslim.

Here is a documentary narrated and hosted by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick entitled Ethiopia an Islamic History.
