The Political-Impotence of the Muslim-Community & how to cure it!!!

Standard

gareth-bryant-eid-pics-23.jpg

It is getting more obvious, by the time, by the generation, by the day, by the hour, that if the Muslims, within Non-Muslim nations don’t begin to take the reigns of some sort of political-responsibility, where they are, where the reside, where they live, then, at some point, in some way, we will perish. Now, I don’t at all mean that we will be systematically killed. But, I do mean that we will be just another disinfranchised minority, with no political protection, ambition, or vision…In the words of Seet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time for dat!!!”.

What we most definitely do have time for is to get involved, in any way that wecan, in the political-process, relative to where we are. Don’t get me wrong: I’m as cynical & distrusting of these politicians (even the Muslim ones), as anyone else. However, like a lot of people & things, politicians are necessary-evils, especially in light of the fact that our true divinely-designated political-framework, given by Allah, Creator/Lord of the Universe, known affectionately as al-Khilafah (the Islamic ruling-system, based upon ash-Shari`ah [the socio-political manifestation of the  teachings of the Qur’an & Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition]), has been non-existent in our world, since the 20th-Century, C.E.

In other words, since the true legislation of Allah is not established anywhere in the World, right now, as we speak, then, we have to use what we have, until/unless we can do better. And fortunately/unfortunately, the status-quo political-system, known as Democracy is the best that we’ve got, right now. Democracy is not at all perfect, for several reasons. Still, aside from that, the Muslim-Communities of Non-Muslim nations may be able to gain some type of political-foothold, which can be very useful, in terms of pursuing agendas which our communities favor.

So, with this being said, “How do the Muslims acquire any type of political-prowess?”, one may ask, which is a very good & important question-There are no 1-word answers as to how to solve the problem within the Muslim-Communities within Non-Muslim countries, that is Political-Impotence. There are, although, steps we ca take, in order to decrease our own political-weaknesses: one of these things is to use which ever political-system which we live under, to manipulate it for all it’s worth, to suit our communal-interest, as best we can; another would be to align ourselves with politicians whom display some type of moral, social, political, integrity & whom are not easily bought, or as easily bought as other politicians.

And, I know, just as much as anyone how this is so much easier to just write about, and a lot harder to actually pull-off. But, when you’re back is against the wall, you’ve got to give it all you’ve got (even if/when you’ve got lil’-to-nothin’ to give). Fortunately, the Muslim-Community is a great source of interest, for any/all politicians, especially those within the political-arena which dominates U.S. policy & politics.

Now, as a result of this fact (and more so because of this fact), ambitious politicians wanna have/host Iftar-Dinners with us, have/host Eid-Celebrations with us, all in the hopes of attaining what means more to them than anything: votes, particularly on Local (City/County, Boro/Borough, Township/Town, etc.) & State levels of government. When it comes to Federal levels of governments, we can all agree that no votes of the Common-People could/would ever determine those issues, or be strong enough to sway the positions these high-powered politicians adhere to, relative to whom supports/controls/influences them financially/politically.

The local-vote is really where it’s at for our Muslim-Communities, because our votes legitimately have more value at these local levels (in these local-elections: like the primaries for example); also, it’s so much easier for the Muslim-Voters to create community-voting-blocs, which ensure that we are united in voting for either one or several politicians & they’ve pledge support of the Muslim-Communities whom vote for them. It’s such a gamble this way, mainly because when power/influence covers you, it almost always stains you & much like money, whenever you’ve got it and/or more of it, it sends a pathological shock, directly to the political/personal ego of any politician & the ol’-sayin’ of how “Money changes you.”, trust me, the same applies in this business of Capitalism…Dog-Eat-Dog World…

…And, after reading this, it’s completely up to you, the reader, as to how you plan to forge some type of political-destiny for our Muslim-Communities.

Fuck the Police-State!!!

Author’s note:

This following poem is a commemoration, of the famous, classic Rap-Song, “Fuck The Police”, by the famous/infamous Rap-Group, known as “NWA/Niggas With Attitude”. Although, raunchy & vulgar as this particular hit was/is, it truly brought the point home, concerning how policing in Non-White neighborhoods, play-out, and are ethno-politically biased, from jump-street, and keep in-mind that this song is about 30-years old, yet, ironically, the same exact policing-policies, all across this nation, we call the United States of America, have barely changed, if at all. Fortunately, my poem is not vulgar, as the song I’ve mentioned is, yet it is just as (in the words of my loving, Muslim brother, Cyrus McGoldrick) “Radical”, in fact, just as radical, if not more radical, than this top-charting urban ballad, written & recorded, over 3-decades ago.

 

Big-Brother is outta control, because, his parents are not home.

He’s able to kill anyone he wants, with just the strike of a drone.

 

He rapes & locks-up, chains, cuffs, and slaps-up, anyone he chooses, with the support of his malicious War-Machine…

…Millions of illiterate, gun-toting, teens & young-men, sent to the frontlines, to simply kill, and, be killed, to be supreme.

 

The time is now…we can’t wait!!!

We must resist the Police-State!!!

 

He gestures, with dangerous-threats, using his weapons; he has no regard for the oppressed, or their loved ones…

…He’s a murderer, swindler, thief; his entire life has been spent upon insatiable control, with his nukes, and, his guns.

 

He uses billy-clubs, bombs & Napalm, to beat-down, destroy & disintegrate.

These tools are solely meant to exploit, disrespect, abuse & to utterly berate.

 

The time is now…we can’t wait!!!

We must resist the Police-State!!!

 

This Police-State, which we all call home, is supported by Banksters, Lobbyists & Politicians.

These same people flood Churches, on Sundays, and masquerade, as god-fearing Christians.

 

It grants full-support to the corruption, caused by Wall Street, as they, like greedy Hawks, pillage Main Street & prey upon the feeble…

…When you really examine, who gets away with what & who gets persecuted, it’s pretty easy to tell the difference between good & evil.

 

The time is now…we can’t wait!!!

We must resist the Police-State!!!

 

How many “We shall overcome” hymns should we hum, before we rise-up & fight back, with courage & much more?!!!

 

When are we gonna stop yelling, at rallies “No Justice…no Peace”, before we stand firm & prepare to wage war?!!!

My thoughts on the War on…everything!!!

Standard

We’re fighting all the wrong wars, for all the wrong reasons!!!

Instead of a war on drugs, let us wage a war upon hypocrisy.
The U.S. had supported the Contras, to promote Democracy.

They were the political MS-13, yet they were given the free range to help the CIA to smuggle narcotics.
It was done to keep the Sandinistas out of power & has resulted in a subculture of urban gang violence.

Without a doubt, it was the largest influx of Coke to enter the U.S.
That Yayo attacked the streets, just like a b-ball full-court press.

Instead of a war on poverty, we need to wage a war upon greed.
Why did Congress give out all that bailout money to Wall Street.?

All of these billionaires, corporations and banks screwed the American people with no vasaline.
They allowed people, who couldn’t afford homes, to take loans, to pursue the American dream.

And, when they couldn’t keep up with the payments, they were muscled and hustled out of their houses.
But, it was financial tycoons & goons whom were compensated & they bought private jets & mansions.

Instead of a war on terror, there needs to be a war upon all of the lies.
We’re in the valley of the wolves, with sheep-clothing as their disguise.

Now, how the hell are 19 Arabs gonna be able to hijack 4 planes, with only box-cutters?
I swear to you, the American people have sadly proven to be some dumb motherfuckers.

How did Tower-7 fall without anything ever hitting it?
I’m sick of all the 9-11 deception, and all the bullshit.

Are these the wars still worth fighting, you tell me!!!
It’s clear what’s the problems, yet we still can’t see.

My thoughts on Monsanto: The Farmers of ad-Dajjal/the Anti-Christ

Standard

Dajjal

The mass global rising in food-prices, the destructive nature of famine stricken countries & regions of the world, the globalization of privatizing/monopolizing agriculture are just some of the many recurring signs that the Dajjal/Anti-Christ is on his way & bringing Hell-on-Earth right with him. But, there’s some things that need to be established first before he’s able to rule uncontested: One of the main sources of his power, before the return of Jesus the Son of Mary: the True-Christ (Peace be upon him), who will end up killing the Dajjal/Anti-Christ, will be control over the worlds food-supplies.

It is mentioned in great detail, in the Prophetic-Tradition of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) that the Dajjal/Anti-Christ will appear before the people (of the World), with abundance of Food & Water, in exchange for loyalty & fellowship towards him. Anyone who refuses to accept his false-claims to legitimate global-rulership, prophecy & divinity, will suffer severely under his tenure of temporary rule over the Earth, until Jesus (Peace be upon him) comes back to Earth & does away with him, thus liberating the Earth of his immense tyranny.

Now, one may ask, who would be helping someone like the Dajjal/Anti-Christ attain world-domination, via control over food-supplies? Well, let’s get to Monsanto, the main focus of this whole article.

Monsanto: Past, present & future objectives:

Past:
Monsanto started off as a chemical company. From it’s founding in 1901, until the present-day, Monsanto has been responsible for producing such chemicals from DDT (an insecticide which had been banned for agricultural use by the U.S. Congress in 1972, for its harmful side-affects to People, Vegetation, and the Environment generally) to Agent-Orange (a chemical-weapon used during the Vietnam-War, which decimated the natural-environment of Vietnam & Cambodia, as well as caused immense death & various other health-defects found in both U.S. Military-Personnel & the People of both Vietnam & Cambodia) that have caused innumerably unchangeable negative-affects to both People & the Environment globally. They’ve managed to successfully establish themselves as the leading pioneers of chemical-manipulation of Agriculture, via producing Herbicides (Pesticides for Plant-Life) genetically-engineered Crops.

Present:
At present, Monsanto possesses one of the most powerful lobbying bodies on this planet, soliciting support from wealthy Business-Persons in the Agricultural-Industry, as well as Corrupt-Politicians, in achieving their goals of genetically modifying & patenting every growable-seed known to Man, in order to consolidate complete control over all things agricultural. They’ve become extremely powerful over the past century, since their initial inception, in the early 1900’s until now. They’ve faced nearly no practical opposition from the Washington “Watch-Dogs” who are supposed to be there to protect the best-interest of the American-People & Peoples around the world. Instead, they’ve given Monsanto a free-hand, to continue its immoral quest to undercut/extort any & all Organic-Farmers, who resist the political/governmental & financial onslaughts used to pressure them to use genetically-engineered agricultural techniques, which include the usage of genetically-engineered seeds, to contribute to the global monopolization of Agriculture by Monsanto.

Future:
From the Islamic perspective, it’s very obvious, based upon the Prophetic-Statements of our Prophet, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) that the Dajjal/Anti-Christ will use food-supplies, as a significant tool, to lure the People (globally) away from the worship of Allah & towards the worship of himself. There are various narrations by a particular Companion of the Prophet (Peace be upon him), named al-Mughirah ibn-Shu`bah (May Allah be pleased with him), of the Dajjal/Anti-Christ coming to the People, presenting abundance of Food & Water. But, for those who truly believe in Allah & the Last-Day, the illusion of the Dajjal/Anti-Christ will not cause their faith to waiver under threat of starvation.(Muslim) However, as Muslims, it is our responsibility to Allah, to recognize the signs that He & His Messenger (Peace be upon him) have left behind for us to benefit from, to have the knowledge and develop the integrity & fortitude to resist the temptation of the Dajjal/Anti-Christ, if/when he comes during our lifetimes. This will be the most trying times for those who believe in Allah & the Last-Day, and companies like Monsanto have shown & proven that they are on the side of the Dajjal/Anti-Christ, by contributing to the immoral privatization/monopolization of agricultural resources. We, who believe in Allah & the Last-Day have to be ready to face the Dajjal/Anti-Christ head-on!!! However, we can’t be ready to oppose him, if we’re not prepared for him, and we can’t prepared for him, if we don’t know about him, and we can’t know about him, unless we’re gaining knowledge about him, by taking heed to the authentically recorded signs present in the Qur’an & Prophetic-Tradition, about his coming & his reign of terror as well as the present reign of terror by those whom are is avid supporters, like Monsanto, for example.

May Allah protect us from the deception of ad-Dajjal/the Anti-Christ & all those who aid him & support him…Amen!!!
