Koran on Political Corruption

28 May

Politicians are among the richest people on earth today, virtually selling the lives of the innocent to get richer by the minute. There are serious human rights abuses around the world, thanks to political corruption. And it’s not just Zardari whom people think is out to sell Pakistan. We know the United States is extremely corrupt. When a Harvard University professor gets away with rape in the U.S. just because the person complaining of rape is a student — you know U.S. can be considered equivalent to a jungle in Africa. See http://owurapist.blogspot.com

 

Here’s God’s take on things:

 

They say: “If the Mercy-giving had so wished, we would not have worshipped them.” No matter what knowledge they may have about that, they are still merely guessing. Or have We given them a book already which they try to hold on to?

Moreover they say: “We found our forefathers following such a community and we are merely being guided along their tracks.” Just the same We have not sent any warner into a town previous to you unless its highlivers said: “We found our forefathers with such a community, and are merely being led along their tracks.” He said: “Even if I should bring you better guidance than what you found your forefathers had?”, they would say: ‘We reject anything you are sent with!”

We have been avenged on them; see what the outcome was for those who denied [it all]! (Qur’an)

 

Basically, the “high-livers” are too complacent to believe in truth when falsehood is working for them so well in the worldly sense. Are the innocent destroyed with the corrupt? — No, provided that they’ve consistently opposed corruption. They should be praying against the corrupt if nothing else.

 

We have never acted as punishers until We have despatched some messenger: yet whenever We want to wipe out some town, We order its high-livers so they act depraved in it; thus the Sentence about it is proven to be right and We utterly annihilate it. How many generations did We destroy since Noah? Sufficient is it for your Lord to be Informed, Observant of His servants’ sins! (Qur’an)

 

Now both the Christians and the Muslims are expecting Jesus Christ or the Mahdi to emerge during this time. Do you think he’d side with the corrupt here or there? Would he shake hands with Obama or Bush, both engaged in perpetual war and under whose leadership countless innocents are killed day after day? Or would he side with the likes of Zardari or bin Laden?

 

We hurry good things up for them, yet they do not even notice it! Those who feel anxious out of awe for their Lord, and those who believe in their Lord’s signs, and those who do not associate anything with their Lord, and those who give away anything they may give while their hearts feel wary lest they should return to their Lord; [all] those compete in doing good deeds and they will soon attain them.

We only assign a soul something it can cope with. Before Us lies a Book which speaks up for Truth; they will not be dealt with unjustly. Instead their hearts are full of excitement because of this. They have other deeds besides those which they are committing, so that whenever We seize their high-livers with torment, just imagine how they bellow! “Do not roar [so loud] today; you will not be supported by Us. My signs have already been recited to you while you proudly turned on your heels away from it, sitting up nights to chatter on and on about it.” (Qur’an)

 

God says He would not argue with the dumb.

 

We have sent no town a warner unless its high-livers said: “We are disbelievers in what you have been sent with.” They say: “We have more wealth and children, and will not be tormented!” SAY: “My Lord extends sustenance to anyone He wishes and budgets it, even though most men do not realize it.”

It is not your wealth nor your children that will bring you close to Us in patronage; only someone who believes and acts honorably (will do so). Those will have a double reward because of what they have done. They will feel secure in mansions while those who were attempting to thwart 0ur signs will be paraded forth into torment.

SAY: “My Lord extends sustenance to anyone He wishes among His servants and He budgets it out. He will compensate you for anything you have spent since He is the best Provider.” Some day He will summon them all together; then He will say to the angels: “Are those the ones who were worshipping you?” They will say: “Glory be to You! You are our Patron rather than they. Instead they have been worshipping sprites; most of them even believe in them!” (Qur’an)

 

Corrupt governments, political leaders and/or rapist professors from Harvard University or elsewhere do not wish to believe in the devil. They are devils. In fact, a book called “UFO’s in the Qur’an” claims that the U.S. government is being run by aliens or evil spirits. That’s Skull & Bones. They tell their members they’d always be protected from corruption charges. So a Harvard University professor, just because he goes to Harvard, is told he’d always be protected from rape accusations, and no matter what crime he commits, it’s going to be ok.

 

But this is not the way God’s government works. This is not something Jesus would stand for. Corrupt people are going to hell, and nothing can change this fact. It’s written on their foreheads, it’s their destiny. Hell? Well, they’d see it when they get there. Jesus is not their Savior. Salvation is only for good people.

Want War? Start “War Against Bombs”

26 May

 

Against the Atomic Bombing of 1945

 

 

The United States should not have used the atomic bomb to stop the Japanese militaristic threat during World War II, seeing that it was unnecessary to cause untold suffering unto hundreds of thousands of people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Seeing that the United States is nowadays a champion of nuclear warming, it would be ironical if the nation would continue to agree with the logic of using an atomic bomb to end war.  Certainly, the atomic bombs used during World War II – Little Boy (especially named for Hiroshima), and Fat Boy (detonated in Nagasaki three days after the Hiroshima bombing) – were deadly, to say the least.[1]  The bombs used by the United States served to terrify the Japanese people, and therefore ended the war quicker than previously believed.  However, today the United States knows that the cost that was paid by the Japanese people at the expense of a war, was humungous.  It should not have happened.  What if it happens in our homeland?  The photographs that have arrived from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are enough to convince us that the bombing was actually unnecessary (See Appendix).  If Mr. Truman were to be asked his opinion today, he might agree, although he might add that it was necessary to check the potency of those bombs for the world to stop using them altogether. 

     While it is a fact that the world has stopped using atomic bombs after the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombing, it remains true that it was unnecessary to use the atomic bombs in the first place.  It was unnecessary because we knew all along that those bombs are powerfully dangerous.  Indeed, the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombings were a crime against humanity.  Needless to say, it is essential to stop such crimes.  Thankfully, still, the U.S. has realized its mistakes and today acts a spokesperson for ‘freedom from nuclear proliferation and explosions,’ which Mr. Truman had thought were actually equivalent to the harnessing of universal energies, if not the powers of God, as of the Big Bang.  At the same time as the atomic bombing of 1945 acted as a revolution for humanity, and the marriage between technology and human beings – it was a “terrible” disaster.  In the words of the then-unapologetic Mr. Truman, the extent of the disaster was also expected:

 

         We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world.  It may be the fire

    destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark.

         Anyway we “think” we have found the way to cause a disintegration of the atom.  An

    experiment in the New Mexico desert was startling – to put it mildly.  Thirteen pounds of the

    explosive caused the complete disintegration of a steel tower 60 feet high, created a crater 6

    feet deep and 1,200 feet in diameter, knocked over a steel tower 1/2 mile away and knocked

    men down 10,000 yards away.  The explosion was visible for more than 200 miles and audible

    for 40 miles and more.

         This weapon is to be used against Japan between now and August 10th.  I have told the

    Sec. of War, Mr. Stimson, to use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the

    target and not women and children.  Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and

    fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb

    on the old capital or the new….[2]

 

The experiment was not essential to conduct upon the lives of countless civilians who ended up losing their existence to Mr. Truman’s whim.  The United States should simply have shown the New Mexico desert example to the Japanese, and warned them thereby.  Science allows for such examples to serve as warnings.  In any case, Mr. Truman was successful in that he managed to warn the Japanese alright.[3]  As a matter of fact, the Americans promised the Japanese more ruin to come from the air, if the latter failed to concede subsequent to the Hiroshima explosion.  Was it not reasonable for the U.S. to have waited more than three days before it also bombed Nagasaki – for the effects of the bomb to show up in greater intensity in Hiroshima, or for the Japanese to simply look upon their damages and surrender?  The effects of the bomb were present the first day to boot.[4]  Unfortunately, the Japanese did not concede until after the Nagasaki bombing.[5]    

     According to the Americans, by bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they terrified the Japanese into surrender.  However, it can reasonably be argued that the United States should have used its actual scientific testing of the nuclear weapon (in the Mexican desert) to scare the Japanese, instead.  The U.S. could have easily reported the scientific testing in the Japanese press.  Furthermore, the U.S. should not have bombed Nagasaki after Hiroshima, seeing that the effects of the bomb in Hiroshima were horrible at best.  The United States is a nation of people standing by God through their world-famous Declaration of Independence and Constitution.  It is quite obvious from news reports about the Hiroshima bombing alone that the attack called for the help of God.  In actual fact, the attack was a miserable failure for the United States because it stopped all sense of normal life in Hiroshima in the twinkling of an eye.  Quite similar to 9/11, the Hiroshima bombing was enough as warning, even if we were to give the U.S. the benefit of the doubt by assuming that the scientific experiment could not have been enough of a warning for the Japanese.  The U.S. should not have gone forward with the Nagasaki bombing after inflicting a disaster similar to 9/11, but bigger in magnitude than 9/11.  It was an inhumane mistake.

     Fortunately, however, the United States is now wise enough to avoid such disasters in the present and the future.  The world knows that the nation is capable of inflicting such a disaster, and other countries are developing similar military power in a race to rule the world.  All the same, everybody now understands that it is atrocious to use atomic bombs on other human beings like unto ourselves.  It is not only inhumane, but also stupid to use nuclear weapons when scientific experiments (including Hiroshima) have clearly shown the immensity of the damage that these weapons may inflict.  It is, moreover, a terrible mistake to be thinking of developing such weapons.  Even though they serve as good warning measures, or may be later used in an ice age; atomic bombs are atrocious to employ on people.  Lastly, it is essential to realize that it is never necessary to be violent and horrible.  Rather, the concepts of peace, love, and brotherhood – all emotional appeals – plus numberless varieties of logical appeals could keep us on the paths of peace and prosperity.  In fact, the relationship between U.S. and Japan as it exists today is evidence that the realization has hopefully occurred.

Jews, Christians, Muslims: Remember One God?

14 May

Muslims are unsafe among Jews and Christians today. Christians are unsafe among Jews and Muslims. Jews are unsafe among Muslims and Christians. But they all believe in the same God whose commands remain unchanged.

The innocents among them fear oppressive politicians and their sidekicks, the terrorists, who wouldn’t allow them to come to terms with each other, that is, peaceful coexistence. Perhaps even love would have been possible?

Let’s build a new world without politicians and their sidekicks. Let’s stop paying attention to them. What Obama? Zardari, who? — Ants before God, insignificant people becoming big in our heads.

O People of the Book! Let us rally to a common formula to be binding on both us and you: That we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, lords and patrons other than God. (Qur’an: Surah Al ‘Imran, 64)

 

Christians fleeing the Middle East

The Pope visited Jordan. The Christians are fleeing the region

Christians used to be a vital force in the Middle East. They dominated Lebanon and filled top jobs in the Palestinian movement. In Egypt, they were wealthy beyond their number.

In Iraq, they packed the universities and professions. But as Pope Benedict XVI wends his way across the Holy Land this week, he is addressing a dwindling and threatened Christian population driven to emigration by political violence, lack of economic opportunity and the rise of radical Islam.

A region that a century ago was 20 per cent Christian is about 5 per cent today and dropping. In Lebanon, Christians now amount to a quarter of the population. A century ago there were millions of Christians in what is today Turkey; now there are 150,000. In Bethlehem, Christians now make up barely a third of the population after centuries of being 80 per cent. Of the 1.4 million Christians in Iraq in 2003, nearly half have fled.

God of the Muslims Prescribed Good Deeds (Koran)

23 Apr

Some people say: “We believe in God and the Last Day,” while they are not believers. They would like to deceive God and those who believe, while they merely outwit themselves and do not even notice it! Their hearts contain malice so God has increased their [share of] malice. They will have painful torment because they have been lying.

 

…Heed God and know that God is Firm in retribution.

 

…They had always competed in doing good deeds and appealed to Us eagerly yet reverently. They were so humble towards Us.

 

…God is Informed, Observant concerning His servants. Then We allow some of Our servants whom We have singled out to inherit the Book. One of them may harm his own soul while another is lukewarm, and still another vies in performing good deeds with God’s permission.

 

…Everyone has some course he steers by, so compete in [doing] good deeds.

 

…They believe in God and the Last Day; they command decency and forbid dishonor, and compete in doing good deeds. Those are honorable men; any good they do will never be denied them. God is Aware of the heedful.

 

…Good deeds remove evil deeds:
that is a Reminder for such persons
as will be reminded.
