Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood: A force to be feared? - CNN.com

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood: A force to be feared? - CNN.com: "

(CNN) -- The scenes in Egypt have been dramatic, as thousands turn out onto the streets demanding that President Hosni Mubarak resign after 30 years in power.
Few images have been more powerful than those of demonstrators dropping to the ground to pray in the face of security forces. And while some have been inspired by the role of religious faith in the protests, there are definite worries that the banned Muslim Brotherhood is waiting in the wings, hoping for a chance to take over.
'You don't just have a government and a movement for democracy,' former British Prime Minister Tony Blair cautioned on Monday. 'You also have others, notably the Muslim Brotherhood, who would take this in a different direction. We need to be anxious to meet the aspirations of the people, but do it in a way that produces something better.'
Former Israeli diplomat Eli Avidar argues that elections put the militant Islamist Hamas movement in power in Gaza."

Status of Non-Muslims under Muslim brotherhood

Status of non-Muslims

  • In 1997 Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mustafa Mashhur told journalist Khalid Daoud[96] that he thought Egypt's Coptic Christians and Orthodox Jews should pay the long-abandoned jizya poll tax, levied on non-Muslims in exchange for protection from the state, rationalized by the fact that non-Muslims are exempt from military service while it is compulsory for Muslims. He went on to say, "we do not mind having Christians members in the People's Assembly...the top officials, especially in the army, should be Muslims since we are a Muslim country...This is necessary because when a Christian country attacks the Muslim country and the army has Christian elements, they can facilitate our defeat by the enemy."[97]
  • The Muslim Brotherhood has from its beginnings had a very hostile view of Zionists, considering them amongst the ultimate enemies of Islam

Egypt Unrest!

Revolution of Egypt!

Energized protesters press for 'freedom,' revel in making history - CNN.com
Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- "Freedom!
That word, yelled out in Arabic, reverberated Friday along the banks of the Nile River in Cairo -- as well as in the port city of Alexandria, near the canal in Suez, and other pockets of Egypt. Many demonstrators voicing their desire for a new government and new political future remained on the streets well into Saturday morning, defying a curfew and revelling in a historic day in a nation whose history dates back millennia.
By early Saturday, police were nowhere to be seen in the capital of Cairo, with military forces deployed on streets all around the nation for the first time in more than three decades. They were ordered out by President Hosni Mubarak, whom many demonstrators were urging to step down or, at least, institute dramatic economic and political reforms.
"We want (Mubarek) to leave," said Ahmed, whose last name was withheld to protect his identity. "His time is over," the 19-year-old law student said early Saturday from Raml Square in central Alexandria.

MSA-UBC CBC Interview: More demands for Muslims

The problem is not in getting foot baths or special bathroom, the problem is what is going to come after! In Islam, he can do his prayers (even the ones he missed) when he gets home or his mosque later. But NO! Why would he do that if he can ask for it? Even some schools in the middle east don't have this kind of bathrooms.

FYI: Jews need to wash up as well, but you didn't see any Jew asking for this!

Local Coptic Christians rally against violence in Egypt - News1130

Local Coptic Christians rally against violence in Egypt - News1130

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Coptic Christians from around the Lower Mainland will be at Vancouver's Art Gallery this afternoon.  They want Canadians to know how Christians are being targeted with violence in Egypt.
The most shocking violent episode happened as worshippers were leaving midnight mass in Alexandria on New Year's Day.  A blast left 23 people dead and nearly 100 injured.
Organizer Nancy Yacoub says Egyptian leaders should know Canadians are watching.  "We are seeing more and more extremism in Egypt.  The government is extremely passive.  The police are controlled by extremists."
She adds thanks to the Internet, the Egyptian government can no longer deny that Christians are being targeted.  Coptic Christians make up about 10 per cent of Egypt's population. 

Catholic Bishop Luigi Padovese Assassinated in Southern Turkey - International - Catholic Online

Catholic Bishop Luigi Padovese Assassinated in Southern Turkey - International - Catholic Online
ANKARA, Turkey (AsiaNews) - Mgr Luigi Padovese, bishop of Iskenderun, in Anatolia, was killed today around 1 pm. A priest friend had just met and spoken to him right after 12 o'clock.
The prelate's driver and aide, a Muslim who had worked for the prelate for some time, is thought to have attacked the bishop with a knife. Eyewitnesses said that the driver appeared "depressed, violent and threatening" in recent days.
Mgr Padovese, 63, was appointed Apostolic Vicar to Anatolia in 2004. Currently, he was the president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Turkey.

Myth of "Misconception" about Islam: Women

So this week is an Islamic Awareness week, and the "good" muslims around campus are trying to correct the image of the Islam in the West.

But Sadly they are not showing the full truth. They are just giving as little as they can to make a point but they obviously not the full truth.

Here is some of the TRUTH:

Qur'an 4:34--Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.
Sahih al-Bukhari 6845—Narrated Aisha: Abu Bakr came to towards me and struck me violently with his fist and said, “You have detained the people because of your necklace.” But I remained motionless as if I was dead lest I should awake Allah's Apostle although that hit was very painful.

Sahih Muslim 3506—Jabir b. Abdullah reported: Abu Bakr came and sought permission to see Allahs Messenger. He found people sitting at his door and none amongst them had been granted permission, but it was granted to Abu Bakr and he went in. Then came Umar and he sought permission and it was granted to him, and he found Allah’s Apostle sitting sad and silent with his wives around him. He (Hadrat Umar) said: I would say something which would make the Holy Prophet laugh, so he said: Messenger of Allah, I wish you had seen (the treatment meted out to) the daughter of Kharija when she asked me some money, and I got up and slapped her on her neck. Allah’s Messenger laughed and said: They are around me as you see, asking for extra money. Abu Bakr then got up went to Aisha and slapped her on the neck, and Umar stood up before Hafsa and slapped her saying: You ask Allah’s Messenger which he does not possess. They said: By Allah, we do not ask Allah's Messenger for anything he does not possess. . . .

Sunan An-Nasa'i 3411--It was narrated from Anas, that the Messenger of Allah had a female slave with whom he had intercourse, but Aishah and Hafsah would not leave him alone until he said that she was forbidden for him. Then Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed: "O Prophet! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah has allowed to you" [66:1] until the end of the verse.

Sahih Muslim 2127— . . . [H]e (the Holy Prophet) entered the (house), and said: Why is it, O Aisha, that you are out of breath? I said: There is nothing. He said: Tell me or the Subtle and the Aware would inform me. I said: Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be ransom for you, and then I told him (the whole story). He said: Was it the darkness (of your shadow) that I saw in front of me? I said: Yes. He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you? . . .

Sunan Abu Dawud 4348—Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas: A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet was informed about it. He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet and said: Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.

In Sahih al-Bukhari 5825, it appears as though Aisha bint Abu Bakr (the Mother of Believers) foresaw the afflictions of the millions of Muslim women that would continue to suffer under abuse. As she is reported saying:

Aisha said that the lady came wearing a green veil and complained to her (Aisha) and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating. It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s messenger came, Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!"

Sahih al-Bukhari 5825—Narrated Ikrima: Rifaa divorced his wife whereupon Abdur-Rahman married her.Aisha said that the lady came wearing a green veil and complained to her (Aisha) and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating. It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s messenger came, Aisha said, “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!” When Abdur-Rahman heard that his wife had gone to the prophet, he came with his two sons from another wife. She said, “By Allah! I have done no wrong to him, but he is impotent and is as useless to me as this,” holding and showing the fringe of her garment. Abdur-Rahman said, “By Allah, O Allah’s messenger! She has told a lie. I am very strong and can satisfy her, but she is disobedient and wants to go back to Rifaa.” Allah's messenger said to her, “If that is your intention, then know that it is unlawful for you to remarry Rifaa unless Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with you.” The prophet saw two boys with Abdur-Rahman and asked (him), “Are these your sons?” On that Abdur-Rahman said, “Yes.” The prophet said, “You claim what you claim (that he is impotent)? But by Allah, these boys resemble him as a crow resembles a crow.”

(Notice Aisha's claim that Muslim women were suffering more than pagan women.)

BBC News - Somalia's al-Shabab bans mixed-sex handshakes

BBC News - Somalia's al-Shabab bans mixed-sex handshakes

Men and women have been banned from shaking hands in a district of Somalia controlled by the Islamist group al-Shabab.
Under the ban imposed in the southern town of Jowhar, men and women who are not related are also barred from walking together or chatting in public.
It is the first time such social restrictions have been introduced.
The al-Shabab administration said those who disobeyed the new rules would be punished according to Sharia law.
