We shred each other While they Unite Localism and globalism
Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal

Localism: the strategy of the enemy

The US political elites and their allies have two prescriptions for mankind. One for themselves; that is globalism. They have another prescription for the Muslims; that is localism in the form of various races, region, clan, sect and language. In 2006, Ralph Peters -the US veteran and strategist argued in his an article "Blood Borders" published in the Armed Forces Journal that the borders of the Muslim countries do not conform with the sectarian, linguistic and ethnic realities on the ground. So he gave a blueprint of dismemberment of the Muslim countries as per various dissimilarities based on race, language and sect. He suggested that the countries like Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Somalia should be divided. He put a map of the new countries in his article. As per his suggestion, Pakistan should be dismembered at least into four; one for each linguistic group. He gives implicit legitimacy to the separatists' war in Balochistan. He prescribed three states in Iraq: one for the Shia Arabs, one for the Sunni Arabs and the third one for the Kurdish people.

But Mr. Peters wishfully ignored the fact that the Muslim countries are not the only multi-ethnic, multi-sectarian and multi-religious countries. Most countries of the world like the USA, the UK, Russia, China, and India have the same type of diversity. The political maps of these non-Muslim countries, too, don't reflect the ground realities of the diversity. More than 200 million people in India are Muslim. Kashmir -larger than most of the countries of the world is still in India. Xin Xiang province of China -larger than the largest country of Europe is Muslim populated. A large part of Russian is also Muslim. But Mr. Peters didn't prescribe the same dismemberment formula for the non-Muslim countries. The reason is simple. Since the USA has declared its war on Islam, its strategy must be a strategy to win the war and it is through weakening the Muslim Ummah. And the disintegration of the Muslim countries is the best way to do that. Now it appears that the USA and its allies are working with the same blueprint.

On the other hand, globalism is gaining huge popularity among the non-Muslims. Despite all the ethnic and linguistic differences, the Hindus of India are united. Russia and China are also united despite the divisive diversities. The USA has been working on globalism with its allies since World War I. After World War II, in order to put a strong defence against Soviet Russia, all the western capitalist countries formed a military alliance called NATO. The Europeans formed the EU. Now to resist China, the USA and its allies have made a new alliance called AUKUS; the USA, the UK and Australia are its members.

Globalism is also getting strong advocates among the western academics. Andrew Roberts -a conservative historian recently suggested in the Wall Street Journal in its article "It's Time to Revive the Anglosphere" that all the English speaking countries like the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand must unite.

Tide of localism in the Muslim World
While the non-Muslims are pursuing the path of globalism, the Muslims are bogged down with localism. In the aftermath of colonialism, the three fathers cum gurus of localism have harmed the Muslim Ummah catastrophically. They are Mr. Kamal Pasha -the father of Turkish nationalism, Mr. Sharif Hussain -the father of Arab nationalism, and Mr. Shaikh Mujibur Rahman -the father of Bengali nationalism. Kamal Pasha with his radical secularism and Turkikh nationalism has successfully dismantled Osmania caliphate and took the Turkish people away from Islam. He could heavily appease the western ruling elites by fulfilling their anti-Caliphate agenda. As a token of their satisfaction, Turkey was taken as a trusted member of the western military alliance of NATO. Betrayal of Islam and the Muslim cause turned so toxic in the Turkish psych that Turkey became the first country to recognise the illegitimate state of Israel in the Muslim heartland. Such Turkish localism precipitated the collapse of the Caliphate. It worked in tandem with the Arab localism to damage the unity and honour of Muslim Ummah. Because of hatred against Islam and Arabs, the Arabic script and calling azan (call for prayers) in Arabic were banned in republican Turkey. They showed their love for western culture, western dress, western laws and even western script. Distancing from Islam and the Muslim Arabs and celebrating the Turkish ethnic glory became the state policy.

Sharif Hussain -a former Osmania governor of Hejaz promoted Arab localism in the Arab World. He allied with the English and the French colonialists to dismember the Caliphate and to raise an Arab Empire. He failed to establish an Arab Empire but succeeded in dismantling the Caliphate. The disintegration of the Arab World into 22 states, ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the creation of the west's watchdog Israeli state owes not only to the victory of the new European crusaders but also to the crimes of the people of Arab localism.

Shaikh Mujibur Rahman of Bengali localism aligned with the Hindutva forces of India to promote his power-grabbing personal agenda. For that, he dismembered Pakistan -the largest Muslim country of the contemporary world. As a result, Bangladesh now stands as a vassal state of India. The Indian goods enjoy free access to its markets. In fact, Bangladesh is the largest market of Indian products. The Indian transport vehicle gets access to its sea ports. India's civil and military logistics to the war-prone seven Indian eastern provinces get a safe corridor through Bangladesh. Moreover, India can engineer any political coup in Bangladesh through its embedded civil and military agents. So Bangladesh pays its heavy price for localism.

Globalism and localism: the Islamic perspectives

All humans -like all the living and non-living beings of the universe are the creations of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. The All-Merciful Almighty has intense love for every human. For peace and success of the mankind, He prescribed Islam. It is the only roadmap of ultimate success both here and in the hereafter. It is indeed the greatest gift of the Almighty. For success, unity is indispensable. And the disunity makes it impossible. Hence, Islam makes unity a religious obligation. But Satan wants chaos, calamities and failure; hence wants division and wars. Therefore promoting localism is a satanic agenda. It is made haram in Islam.

As per the Holy Qur'an, killing an innocent man is a crime equivalent to killing all humans. Hence a full guarantee of equal security and welfare for every human being and the people of every locality is the crucial matter in Islam. So, ensuring such safety for everyone -rich or poor is ibadah -the servitude unto Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. Islam encourages people to fight for justice for everyone and prohibits politics on localism. The discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, skin colour and faith is haram (forbidden). It is a punishable crime to spread hatred and make war on the basis of ethnic, linguistic, and skin-based dissimilarities. Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) never tolerated such divisive politics. It was treated as a punishable offence. Islam promotes globalism-called pan-Islamism. Under the Prophet (peace be upon him)'s rule, the Arabs, the Iranians, the Ethiopians and the Romanians worked as fellow brothers, there was no divisive border.

The politics of localism is not a modern invention. It is the old practice of ancient ignorance -jaheliyah. Before Islam, the Arabs didn't have any state nor any civilisation. They were known by their own localities. They were divided into tribes and used to fight tribal wars for years after years. They didn't have any global outlook. Islam gave the Arabs a new vision, a new mission and a new insights to look at people around them. It was a trans-tribal, trans-language and trans-locality paradigm. Such globalism could dismantle the divisive walls that survived among them for centuries. Localism promotes weakness and wars. And globalism generates unity, gives strengths and promotes peace. Islam proved that in its golden days. As a result, the Arab Muslims could form a state, could stand a World Power and could raise the finest civilisation in human history.

The calamity of localism

The calamity of localism is catastrophic. Most horrendous crimes in the modern Muslim history are committed by the promoters of localism. The Arab nationalists killed thousands of non-Arabs -especially the Turks in 1917-18 and the Bengali nationalist killed tens of thousands of non-Bengalis in 1971. Hundreds of the Muslim women have been raped and their houses and businesses are gutted by the so-called Muslims for dissimilar race and language.

The decadence of the Muslims indeed started when they left the path of globalism and followed localism. About 200 million Bengali Muslims (of both Bangladesh and West Bengal) now suffer from Hindutva Hindus' hegemony. The 400 million Arabs -despite the huge resources - stand as the most weak and defenceless people on the planet. They can't even stand against 6 million Israeli Jews. Their localism has devastated their power. As a result, the Arab people of Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Lebanon still face the worst miseries.

The old days of jahiliya of localism have returned back to the Muslim World. The Arabs are its worst victims. They celebrate localism. Even a small piece of land with a few oil fields claims statehood and celebrates localism. Therefore disunity, defeat and humiliation have become the integral parts of Arab life. Their decadence has gone so low that the Arabs are not even Arab nationalist. They now represent sub-nationalism, tribalism, and other worst forms of localism. This is indeed the worst calamity of localism in the Muslim World. This has proved enough to invite the Divine punishment. London, 29/09/2021.



JI report
Explaining why Imran Party cannot Change Pakistan.
Not different from PPP,etc.

LAHORE- Sep30:Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said the country could not go ahead without introducing wide-ranging reforms in all major sectors.

As the present system benefits the ruling elite, they would never be interested to change it, he said while talking to different delegations at Mansoora on Thursday.

"People should make a peaceful democratic struggle to send the status quo forces to home," he said, adding the PTI continued the policies of the past government and only made lies that it was an agent of "change."

He criticized the government one-sided electoral reforms agenda, terming it a plan of pre-poll rigging.

The government so-called reform agenda, he said, overshadowed the critical issues which were hurdles in fairness of electoral process. There was need to address the issue of unbridled use of money in elections and influence of government and state officials in the electoral process, he said, the Election Commission should be powerful and independent. But, he said, he was afraid the status quo forces would never pay attention to the basic problems as the current system suited them.

Sirajul Haq said the prime minister made tall claims to end corruption but the evil was still there rather the international agencies noted the rise in corruption in PTI government's three years, he added.

The inflation and unemployment were major problems which the government failed to address despite making promises, he said, adding a common Pakistani could not afford purchasing of basic needs.

The JI chief said the PTI was the agent of the status quo like the PML-N and the PPP. He said the people were desperate from the policies of the present government and wanted to get rid of it. He appealed the people to vote for the JI in the coming election to bring real change and transform Pakistan into Madina state.

Mourning a 28-Year Old.
How race & Economics work in New York.

by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat all-Muslimeen]

I was absolutely in SHOCK! Just stunned to hear that my neighbor, Jordan Nieves, someone I have known since birth, had recently passed away. He was 28 years old. I was told that he had succumbed to the coronavirus. He was the youngest tenant in my building. He is survived by his mother and siblings.

I am not going to challenge Allah's authority and say that children should not pass away before their parents do or that he died too soon. Although these statements are made during moments of great pain, we must remember that we all are where Allah wants us to be and must trust in him. Only Allah knows His reasons.

Jordan was a student of life. He was respectful, helpful, and kind. I always saw him walking to and from our apartment building with his backpack. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he was a musician who played the keyboard.

He was a jovial personality who was always respectful towards women, especially. I remember when he was a little younger seeing him engaged in conversation with a young lady in the lobby of my building, weeknights, on my way home from work. Just kid stuff. So innocent.

But, it was a over a year ago, when I heard that Jordan had been accosted by a neighbor and told that she heard a disturbing conversation coming from his apartment. This neighbor is a White woman, who is one of many gentrifyers that have moved into my building and have, unfortunately, been wreaking havoc on its long-time residents. She claimed she overheard someone in Jordan's apartment mention having a gun and threatening violence with it. She also said she considered calling the police.

This neighbor's husband happened to be the head of the condo board and they wanted Jordan's apartment! Trying to get other tenants evicted just to move friends or relatives in them is common in my building. Plus, these gentrifyers view the Black rent-stabilized tenants as an eyesore. Race plays a role but, it is really economic.

At a special tenants meeting, Jordan told some of us that he stopped sitting and chatting in his own livingroom, which was by the front door, because this false accusation caused him so much anxiety. He walked on eggshells. What a way to live! Many of us were upset that he had such an unpleasant experience, as well as others, involving these gentrifyers.

Jordan's mother is an activist/politician. She is Harlem's District Leader and has been selected, by a special Democratic election committee, to run for a vacant Senate seat. Many say her prospects are excellent! Yet, her activism began as a concerned mother fighting for lead poisoning legislation after her Jordan's battle with it as a child. Talk about a mother's dedication! In 2004, landmark legislation was passed to protect many residents against lead paint, in New York City.

She was a mother on a mission then, and still is now, in spite of her great loss.

I cannot imagine the pain any parent experiences after losing a child. I just know that Jordan is not suffering anymore and that I have been praying that his family copes with his loss the best way that they can, together.

96-Year Old German Woman Put on Trial.
This is how Germany Helps Israel

by Dr. Kaukab Siddique

Germany should be ashamed, putting a 96 year old German woman on trial for having supported Hitler as a typist when she was 18.

In Germany any defense of people who supported Hitler in any capacity is a crime, which has led to the persecution of countless people.

This woman has probably been marked as guilty already.
This is how the international media described her arrest on September 30.

"Irmgard Furchner is accused of having contributed as an 18-year-old to the murder of 11,412 people when she was a typist at the Stutthof concentration camp between 1943 and 1945."

Thus the puppet German government supports the myths pro-Israel lobbies have developed.

Almost every day Israel commits atrocities against Palestinians and no one is ever brought to trial. The Israeli air force has killed several thousand Palestinioan children.

The trial of the 96 year old woman is absurd. How can there be any due process 76 years after the war ended. In that war horrendous crimes were also committed against German women and children by the Russian, British, French and American bomber air fleets. Entire German cities were set on fire.
We urge Muslims to protest to the German embassy nearest to you.

I say: Free Irmgard Furchner

You are moving on to an abode that has no end so move on with the Best Deeds that you have for it has been said to us that a rock can be dropped from the edge of hell and fall for
seventy (70) years without reaching the bottom.{!}

And it has been said to us that a single entrance to Paradise is as wide as a journey of 40 years {!}
Yet , there will come a day when it will be crowded..{!}

I have seen myself as the seventh of seven [followers of ] Allâh's Messenger -
[Allâh's peace and blessings be upon him] we had no food save the leaves of trees which put sores round our mouths...
I once got a cloak which I tore in half to share with
Sa'd b. Mâlik: [Allâh be pleased with him ]
I used half as my waist wrap and he used the other.
And yet today, there is not one of us except he has become a governor over some city.

I seek refuge with Allâh that I consider myself great and important when I am small in front of Allâh {!}
Verily there was never prophet-hood except that it gradually changed until it ended up being a kingship, and verily you will see what the governors after us are like.

Only your righteous deeds remain.
This world is like a drop of water, the akhirah is like an ocean.

Public State School Teaches Students to Recite Prayer to Aztec god.

Three California parents filed a suit in Court asking the judge to stop the state's public school system from having their children recite prayers to Aztec deities.

Chants and prayers that invoke the deity Tezkatlipoka are part of the curriculum for the "Ethnic Studies" class.
Tezkatlipoka is an Aztec god that was honored with human sacrifices.

The school provides students with these written prayers and chants.

One document provided by the school tells students that prayers to these dieties "energize" them and "bring unity" and will "invigorate" students if they are "feeling low".

The attorney for the parents said "Our clients are not opposed to having students learn about different culturesand religions, including the practices of the Aztecs."

Protests in New York and in Kazakhistan [latest]

A group of protesters descended on an Apple store in New York City on Saturday, blasting the company for its production in China associated with forced labor in Xinjiang province and the Uyghur genocide.

The protesters gathered in front of the store on the corner of 67th and Broadway in Manhattan's Upper West Side at 3:00 p.m., holding "Divest Uyghur Genocide" signs.

[NUR-SULTAN -- Kazakh police detained eight protesters, mostly women, demanding the release of relatives they say are being illegally held in China.

The October 1 protests were the latest in a series of demonstrations in Kazakhstan linked to the massive detention of Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other ethnic groups in the neighboring Chinese province of Xinjiang.

Demonstrators have demanded Kazakh authorities do more to protect ethnic Kazakhs who have been caught up in the Chinese sweep. Kazakhstan's government, however, has been wary of angering Beijing, which is a major investor in Kazakhstan and throughout Central Asia.

One of the protesters in the Kazakh capital on October 1 was wheelchair-user Khalida Aqytkhan, 65, who fell to the ground as police were forcing her into a vehicle.

The most recent wave of protests began September 20 when demonstrators traveled to Nur-Sultan from the country's commercial capital, Almaty, where groups had rallied for months in front of the Chinese Consulate there.]

Terrible injustice

Ahmed Abu Ali is a 40-year-old American citizen of Jordanian origin currently serving a sentence of life without parole in a Communications Management Unit in Terre Haute, IN, following a 2005 conviction for material support and related terrorism charges. Central to Abu Ali's prosecution and conviction was a "confession" he gave after repeated interrogations under torture during a period of incommunicado detention in Saudi Arabia by the secret Saudi police agency, the Mabahith.

 Ahmed Abu Ali

The jury convicted Abu Ali after a three-week trial. The district judge initially sentenced Abu Ali to 30 years, reasoning that "Mr. Abu Ali never planted any bombs, shot any weapons, or injured any people, and there is no evidence that he took any steps in the United States with others to further the conspiracy; no witness testified that they personally saw or conspired with Mr. Abu Ali to commit any acts of violence and there is no evidence that there were other co-conspirators in the United States; no weapons were ever found in Mr. Abu Ali's possession; and no victim was injured in the United States by Mr. Abu Ali's actions." The government appealed the sentence as too lenient, and Abu Ali was ultimately resentenced to life without parole -- or as those who experience call it, death by incarceration.
