Madrasah: An Islamic School to Learn “Ignorance” by Sujit Das.


ut of all the heinous crimes modern societies have ever witnessed, the worst one obviously is crime against children. The barbaric violent acts of brutality against children often leave scars in their soft minds, which often never heals in their lifetime.

Islam is such a wonderful religion that legalizes many crimes in the name of God. If there is any ‘beauty’ in Islam, here it is. In fact this is the main reason; many condemned criminals (who otherwise are considered a burden on any civilized society) today are being attracted towards this wonderful religion. Crime against children is one of such many legalized crimes. There are many incidents where the keepers of Islam have shown merciless and cruel treatment towards children – child suicide bombers of Palestine, camel jockeys in Middle East and Islamic schools all over the world.

Madrasahs are Islamic schools to study pure Islamic ethics (is there any?). The culprits are the religious teachers and the victims include helpless innocent underage students. The sacred teacher-student relationship is given a new definition in these Islamic schools.

Following is the bitter experience of a 12 years old Madrasah student from Kenya who was rescued during January 2003.

“It was a terrible place, they chain both legs and both arms, sometimes hands and feet together, They beat us at lunch time, dinner time and grab both legs and hands and give uslashes on the buttocks. We sleep in chains, eat in chains, and go to the toilets in chains. Sometimes we are hooked on the roof in chains and left hanging. We have to memorize the Koran and get punished if we cannot recite the Koran in the classroom”.

This is the ‘legal punishment’ for a student who cannot memorize Koran in Arabic language. Like wife-beating; child-beating is also religiously allowed in Islam. Though the prophet of Islam was an illiterate village idiot and child rapist, he had given some ‘valuable’ opinion on children’s upbringing and education. According to Sunan Abu Dawud Book 2, Number 0495,

Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-’As:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: Command your children to pray when they become seven years old, and beat them for it (prayer) when they become ten years old; and arrange their beds (to sleep) separately.

Prophet was very concerned about their religious upbringing. Ayatollah Khomeini was even one step ahead of his Prophet. Khomeini said “A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby” (Paz, 2006). Like prophet, like follower. Anyway that is a different story.

Chaining incidents are comparatively rare in Bangladeshi Madrasahs than other backward Islamic nations. One major incident took place in Chittagong, a busy seaport-city of Bangladesh. More than 20 students were chained and subjected to inhuman torture. All of them were under the age of 14 years; some were as young as 11. One such child was forced to carry a section of a steel railroad tie for at least one-month continuation.

Child torture incidents in Madrasahs are reported mostly in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sudan. The first two countries are safe haven for Islamic radicals, on top of their low economy. Bangladesh is in a much better position than those countries. There are many Muslim nations where very little state-fund education is available and the Saudi-funded Islamic schools are only means of education available. With the curriculum dominated by the Wahhabi interpretation of Islam, often these Madrasahs – particularly in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, have produced exactly the same type of Jihadis (Atwan, 2006)

In most of the Madrasahs of Pakistan, the only subject taught is Koran, and that also in Arabic, which is a foreign language and unknown to the students. By end of 2005, there are about thirty-nine thousands registered Madrasahs in Pakistan, whereas during 1978, this number was three thousands only (O’Rourke, 2005). The number of students are estimated somewhere between eight hundred thousands to one million (Dalrymple, 2005). They are often run by religious organizations and lure young children mainly from poor families by providing free food and lodging. Some of the schools even provide intensive political and armed training. Recent estimates suggest that between 10 and 15 percent of Pakistan’s 46,700 Madrasahs (includes both registered and unregistered) promote violence openly (Davis, 2002). In Taliban schools of Afghanistan, often the first word children learn to spell is “jihad”, which means “God’s path to paradise”. There are at least six specialized Madrasahs in Pakistan which regularly supplies suicide bombers to the Taliban. (Al Qaeda Training Manual, 2001). During their heydays, Talibans had banned watching television, going to school, and learning modern sciences. Even learning of history, geography, and mathematics were totally banned and the only activities were the recitation and the memorization of the Koran. Learning English was a huge crime (Sohail, 2007). Many Taliban controlled Madrasahs are sponsored from the outset of Pakistani ISI (Atwan, 2006). In Pakistan and Afghanistan, still there are some orthodox Madrassh teachers, who teaches that earth is flat and stationary and sun rotates around the earth.

In addition to promotion of violence against non-Muslims, often there are Madrasahs which promote sectarian violence (e.g, between Shia – Sunni etc). Several anti-Shia militias such as the Sipah-i Sahaba (army of Prophet’s companion) and Lashkar–i Jhangvi (Jhangvi’s army) hailed from extremist Deobandi Madrasahs and maintain close ties with other terrorist organizations in Afghanistan, Kashmir and elsewhere (Nasr, 2006). The results, we are seeing everyday in Iraq, where not a single day passes without sectarian violence and killing.

During 1994, human rights commission of Pakistan investigated the child abuse incidents and results of the investigation shows that in many Madrasahs, the children are often locked in iron chains to a heavy wooden block in group of four or five. When one of them needs to go to toilet, rest all needs to follow him. Several children were found to have been continuously chained for up to one year. This prevents them from escaping from the school to avoid the burden of memorizing the Koran in Arabic.

During March 1996, police raided a Madrasah near Multan and rescued 64 such victims (Anon, 2004). They were held in strong ropes and chains. The religious head teacher of the Madrasah said that the students had fallen into bad habits of watching satellite television. In orthodox Islamic society watching television is a big religious taboo. The head teacher also said that, sometimes even the parents of the children instructed the teachers to chain their children. These incidents not only leave scars in their hands and feet but also in their soft minds.

In another incident in Pakistan, during September 1997, a 14 year old student, Muhammad Azam Dogar, somehow managed to escape from the Madrasah torture chamber with iron fetters still in his legs. It was not easy for him to remove the heavy iron fetters. In a desperate effort to remove them, he decided to put them on a rail track. Though he was successful to escape from the Islamic religious jail, he lost his life and was crushed to death under the on-coming train (Children in the Community and family, 2005).

Pakistani government is aware of this kind of heinous crimes against children. But there is hardly any effort on their part to stop this barbarism in the name of education. There are laws, which prohibit violence against children in the society. But when such crimes are committed in the name of religion the law remains within the book only. The political parties do not want to spoil their relationship with religious organizations that run such schools. Sometimes the influential religious parties even threaten retaliation if there is official probing and if they are closely controlled. The political force of this Madrasah system cannot be underestimated. Hence there are many cases of beating, chaining and other types of torture, which remain unknown to the outside civilized world. Even when the abuses become widely known, the authorities still appear unwilling to take significant action to protect the innocent children. The situation is that worse.

The children in Sudan are in even worse situation. There, the students are forced to drink the water, which is left from washing the dirty chalkboards (Anon, 2005) where Koranic verses are written. Students are convinced that, the holy wash-water will help them to memorize Koran! A great way of memorizing Koran, indeed! Can anybody imagine, all these things are happening in this 21st century?

The deep-rooted superstitious minds of Islamic teachers will take another thousand years to change. The only requirement of a student for the purpose of passing out from the school successfully is to be able to memorize the entire Koran. Many students take as long as nine years, whereas many others cannot complete the course and never pass out even after chaining and drinking wash-water.

Child abuse cases in pure Islamic schools are nothing new. It is traditional, but hardly few of these incidents come into limelight. Madrasah is a place for brainwashing young minds just to destroy all the future possibilities of the child to do something creative, and to make him a Koranic zombie. All the humanities are nipped in the bud. Countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan and some Muslim majority parts of India, these schools are just mushrooming. They target children of poor Muslim families. Sometimes the families of the children are paid handsomely for sending their children to these schools.

Then, there are several cases of sexual abuse against children in Madrasah. Many of these teachers are hardcore paedophiles and homosexuals. Their only purpose of opening a Madrasah is not spreading Islamic education but to lure children from poor families for sexual pleasure, by providing them free food and lodging. There are reported incidents, where students are forced to engage on oral and anal sex regularly with their teachers. Though many helpless students succumb to such meanness, but occasionally, when a student is dare enough to reject giving such an inhuman pleasure, the consequences are severe.

One horrible incident was reported on 11th December, 2004 in The Daily Times of Lahore. A 14-year-old Madrasah student, Abid Tanoli, had acid thrown on his face by his Madrasah teacher. This poor fellow had lost both his eyes with more than 50 % burn on his face. Left side of his face was horribly disfigured. This incident took place on 1st July 2002 in Karachi (Petit, 2004). His fault was that he rejected sexual demand from his Madrasah teacher. The Daily Times also reported that, during the year 2004, there are total 500 complaints of child sex abuse in Pakistani Madrasahs, but there was hardly any successful prosecution (Khawaja, 2004). Presently, the teacher (who cannot be named for legal reasons), and two of his accomplice are in prison awaiting trial for attempted murder and rape. All three denied the charges. The fourth culprit is still absconding. These incidents are increasing in number every year.

Haroon Tanoli, the father of Abid, was threatened with harsh consequences when he tried to take up his son’s case with officials at the school. The school authority initially tried to hush up the matter by offering him a cash payment of one million Pakistani rupees (£11,300), butHaroon refused to back down and took up the matter with police (Ansari, 2004).

Haroon said to the journalist, “I despise hypocrites who sport huge beards in the name of religion and hinder the passage of justice in the name of Islam … I had a beard, and all my four sons were studying in a madrasa. However, following this incident, the first thing I did was to pull my children out of the madrasa – and shave off my beard” (Ansari, 2004).

Even when Abid was receiving medical treatment, the religious authorities pressed the hospital authority to discharge him. Haroon managed to get him admitted to a different hospital for safety reasons. The family is too poor and cannot afford an operation to save his sight. The poor boy lost his sight forever.

As per BBC report on 10th December 2004, Aamer Liaquat Hussian, a Minister in the nation’s religious affair department is facing death threats and denunciations from Islamic clerics for his insistence that Pakistani government must confront the sex abuse at its Madrasahs (Anderson, 2004). Hussain sticks by his point and reportedly to have said that he himself experienced attempted sexual abuse at a religious school when he was eight (Khawaja, 2004).

Zia Ahmed Awan, the president of ‘Madadgaar’, a joint project of LHRLA (Lawyers for Human Rights and Legal Aid) and UNICEF, the United Nations children’s fund, said, “They [the sex scandal] are either hushed up and sorted out within the confines of school, or parents are pressurised not to report the incident to the media as it would give religion a bad name,” (Khawaja, 2004).

The Ulema, Imams and Maulanas and other religious teachers of Islam may not have advanced the cause of human knowledge by a single inch since the birth of Islam, but they should get some credit; they have done enough research, developed many ideas and have ‘doctorates’ in the fields of torture and human exploitation in the name of religion.

Now these types of nasty incidents are being reported in United Kingdom also. In UK, there are about 1000 such Islamic schools. As many as 40% of teachers in these UK schools hit or scold children, and between 15 and 20 cases of sexual abuse occur each year (Siddiqui, 2006; Anon, 2006). Because of the fear of child abuse, many UK parents prefer home tuition instead of sending their children to Madrasahs.

One enlightened ex-Muslim lady wrote in FFI,
“My experience of Madrasah was like any other glorifying Muhammad, chanting things we didn’t understand all day long and showing absolute disrespect to Christians and the other animists it was the thing to do”.( Rasheeda, 2004 )

Often the Madrasah pass out students are found to be less tolerant towards other religions, less logical power and blockheaded, blissfully ignorant of modern scientific developments, opposed to the social rights of women and violent repression, prone to child abuse, hateful towards non-Muslims, absolute theocracy, superstitious, prefer aggressive way for resolving disputes between Muslims and non-Muslims and supporting jihad in conjunction with terrorist groups. Their proper thinking power is skilfully paralysed during the course of their studies.

After so much torture, chaining, beating and wash-water drinking; the market value of these students is utter disgusting in today’s tough professional competition. With a total lack of modern education and knowledge of latest technology, these Madrasah students are not at all useful to any modern day employer. They remain fit for manual labourers’ class jobs like sweepers and garbage removers, where no education is necessary. Sometimes they are employed in the religious sector as prayer leaders and so-called Islamic scholars or Madrasah teachers. In fact I am not exaggerating if I say that they are even unfit for conducting sophisticated terrorist operations – their uselessness is so perfect. The only jobs they are fit for in a terrorist organization is a suicide mission, killing and torturing non-Muslims and blindly follow the instructions of their leaders.

The irony of the situation is that many students outside Arab even do not know what is written in Koran. They just recite the Koran in Arabic, but they do not understand the contents. They don’t even know what they have studied even after pursuing for several years. Is not it bizarre?

So, all the effort to pass out from schools remains useless for all practical purposes in today’s world. They cannot blend into an advanced western nation. They are total failure in sophisticated operations, where even basic minimum technical expertise is required. Some of them even lack basic mathematical skills (Fair & Haqqani, 2005). They are blissfully ignorant of the various developments and wallowed in a state of nostalgia about the glorious feudal past of militant Islam. History, if taught at all, would be Islamic history and not modern history or world history. Some students may acquire good proficiency in Urdu and Arabic languages at the best, but without other knowledge they find themselves quite ill-equipped to transact business in present day society (Shourie, 2004).

What stuns the educated people is that they do not blame themselves or their educational-background for their misery; they just put the blame on western world. “Afghans suffer poverty because of America’s disproportionate wealth” – this is what Madrasah teachers say in Afghanistan.

This is the bottom line of Madrasah education. The basic essentials of a successful education system are never fulfilled. Education involves transference of knowledge and values accumulated by mankind from one person to another. Humanity is inseparable from education. The best process of education encourages the students to ask questions, which propel them on the path of further learning. Without this, education becomes a burden. Scientific enquiry also enriches mankind with knowledge. Education improves the reasoning power of a person. Neither memorization of a book nor physical punishment helps the students. Students can learn not only through reading, but also by experience, by watching others and also by observing the world in general. Unfortunately, Madrasah education lacks all of the above. Education is an important area to advance the civilization further. If it is left in the hands of some semi-literates, sadists, paedophiles and homosexuals, this is bound to happen.

Wealthy Muslim married men’s sex tourism. Virgins only.

Wealthy Muslim married men’s sex tourism. Virgins only.
Islam, Prostitution by Taslima Nasreen
Have you ever heard of ‘one month wives’ sex tourism?

Muslim men from the Middle East and Africa come to India to buy ‘one month wives’ for sex. Poor Muslim families pressurize their underage teen daughters to consummate a forced marriage to middle-aged men, much older than their fathers, who pay for them to be their wives for a few weeks. The wedding certificate comes with a divorce certificate that fixes the terms of the divorce at the end of the groom’s holiday.

It is nothing but pure prostitution in the name of marriages.

Girls and women are commodities.

Poor families do not deny the contract marriages because they do not have money to pay dowry for their daughters.

They prefer to collect money through their daughters’ one-month contract ‘marriages’ to fund their daughters’ real marriages.

They have to pay dowry to the real grooms for making their daughters real wives cum slaves. Girls have to do all the household chores of their husbands’ families and bear and rear their children. These girls are used as sex slaves in both marriages, fake or real, illegal or legal, temporary or permanent.

And those wealthy married Muslim men with kids! They know they will have sex as much as they want with virgin girls in paradise.

But they do not like to wait for that, they turn Earth into paradise. They rape temporary virgin girls whom they get through temporary marriages.

They make Allah a witness of their marriages, temporary and permanent. Allah allows polygamy. Allah is the protector.

I am not going to street with Kalashnikovs’:


freedom of speech

‘I’m not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs’: Charlie Hebdo editor rejects responsibility for violence over naked Mohammad cartoons

Has the whole world gone mad? Why is this even a question?

Let’s say you call me a racist, bigoted Islamophobe.

I am deeply insulted. At that moment I have a huge range of options before me.

I can calmly explain to you that Islamic supremacism is not a race, fighting for free speech and equality of rights for all is not bigotry, and “Islamophobia” is a manipulative concept used by the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies to stifle resistance to Islamic supremacism and jihad.

Or I can start yelling and calling you names. Or I can start muttering into my vodka tonic about the injustice of it all.

Or I can murder you, drag your body through the streets, set fire to your embassy, and demand laws against insulting me. Or I can do any number of other things.

Which one will I choose? It’s up to me, not to you.

You might have a strong hunch as to how I will react, and say to your companion, “That Spencer, he is going to come out with another windy, closely reasoned refutation of my charges that everyone will ignore,” or “That Spencer, he is going to burn down my embassy,” but you still can’t be absolutely sure what I am going to do, because I am not an automaton, I am a human being endowed with the faculty of reason, and I may always choose to react in a way that will surprise you.

Or I may not. But in any case, it is up to me. If I kill you, there is absolutely no justifiable basis on which anyone could say, “Well, he had it coming. Look how he provoked him.” My choice was my own, and only I bear responsibility for it.

But today that basic and elemental truth is lost. If Muslims rage, riot and murder for any reason, they bear no responsibility.

The only ones who bear any responsibility for their raging, rioting and murdering are the non-Muslims who somehow provoked them by stating Truth about pedophile cult leader.

That I have to take the time to explain this at all, and that it will be universally ignored, is an indication of how much our public discourse has degenerated.

The road is being swiftly paved for the destruction of the freedom of speech. When,

in another year or so, I am safely imprisoned for daring to speak the truth and a new era of peace has dawned between the West and the Islamic world,

and yet the jihad keeps coming, and the full implications of the new “hate speech” laws start to become clear in the quashing of all political dissent, don’t say you weren’t warned.

Of course, maybe none of that will happen, and the freedom of speech will suddenly sport a thousand articulate defenders who have not yet been completely demonized and marginalized out of the public square.

But I don’t see them on the horizon right now.

“‘I’m not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs’: Charlie Hebdo editor rejects responsibility for violence over naked Mohammad cartoons,”

The editor of French magazine Charlie Hebdo has said that when his magazine ridiculed the Mohammad on Wednesday by portraying him naked in cartoons, he and his organization were not responsible for fuelling the anger of Muslims around the world who are already incensed by a video depicting him as a lecherous fool.

The editor, Stephane Charbonnier, also known as Charb, rejected criticism. “We have the impression that it’s officially allowed for Charlie Hebdo to attack the Catholic far-right but we cannot poke fun at fundamental Islamists,” he said.

“It shows the climate. Everyone is driven by fear, and that is exactly what this small handful of extremists who do not represent anyone want: to make everyone afraid, to shut us all in a cave,” he told Reuters.

“Muhammad isn’t sacred to me,” he said in an interview at the weekly’s offices on the northeast edge of Paris. “I don’t blame Muslims for not laughing at our drawings. I live under French law; I don’t live under Koranic law.”

Charbonnier said he had no regrets and felt no responsibility for any violence.

“I’m not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs,” he said. “We’ve had 1,000 issues and only three problems, all after front pages about radical Islam.”

One cartoon alluded to the scandal over a French magazine’s publication of topless photos of the wife of Britain’s Prince William.

It showed a bare female torso topped by a beard with the caption “Riots in Arab countries after photos of Mrs Mohammad are published”….

“We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory. But we’ve spoken repeatedly about the importance of upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our constitution,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters.

“In other words, we don’t question the right of something like this to be published, we just question the judgment behind the decision to publish it.”…

That’s the first step.

Why are Jews so powerful?


for your eyes,

UNBELIEVABLE AND WRITTEN BY A MUSLIM

It sure makes interesting reading… particularly coming from a Pakistani official.

By: Dr Farrukh Saleem

The writer is the Pakistani Executive Director of the Center for Research and Security Studies, a think tank established in 2007, and an Islamabad-based freelance columnist.

Why are Jews so powerful?

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in
Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are
100 Muslims.

Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful
than all the Muslims put together.
Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish.
Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and
TIME magazine‘s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew.

Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew.
So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output
has enriched the whole humanity:

Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle.
Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine.
Albert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine.
Gertrude Elion gave us a leukemia fighting drug.
Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.

Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis.
Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.
Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.
Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology.
Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy.

Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
George Wald won a Nobel for our understanding of the human eye.
Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology.
Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion
Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).
Why are Jews so powerful?
Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip.
Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor;
Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable;
Charles Adler, traffic lights;
Benno Strauss, Stainless steel;
Isador Kisee, sound movies;
Emile Berliner, telephone microphone;
Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include
Ralph Lauren (Polo),
Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans),
Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s) ,
Sergey Brin (Google),
Michael Dell (Dell Computers),
Larry Ellison (Oracle),
Donna Karan (DKNY),
Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and
Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (Fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (US Senator), Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper
Weinberger (American secretary of defense), Maxim Litvinov ( USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore ‘s first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia ), Benjamin
Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator), Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal ), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home
secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald
(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyveld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

The most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world.

Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals; Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis) are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, (A born jew converted to Hinduisum )
George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman,
Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and
Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone,
Aaron Spelling ( Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky andHutch), Milos
Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

So, why are Jews so powerful?

Answer : EDUCATION
Why are Muslims so powerless?

There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas . Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless?
Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around
500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407.

In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities‘ , and intriguingly, not one university
from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent.

A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with
a literacy rate of 100 per cent.

Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million.
In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs. (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million).

Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP.

Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society.

In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK , the number of book
titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan ‘s export of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco, and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

…..Because we aren’t producing knowledge,
…..Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.,
…..Because we aren’t applying knowledge.

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion.
America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion;
China $8 trillion,
Japan $3.8 trillion and
Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion;
Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion,
Catholic Poland $489 billion and
Buddhist Thailand $545 billion.

….. (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining).
So, why are Muslims so powerless?

Answer: Lack of education.

All we do is shout to Allah the whole day !!! and blame everyone else for our multiple failures!!!!!

Pakistan on the Brink by Ahmed Rashid: review

By Duncan Gardham Last Updated: 12:26PM BST 23/04/2012
Ahmed Rashid’s new books reveals a Pakistan crippled by poor leadership, says Duncan Gardham

As Britain desperately tries to rescue some pride from its imminent withdrawal from Afghanistan, the best-case scenario may be that we leave behind a less stable and more corrupt version of Pakistan.

The vision of that country painted by Ahmed Rashid, one of the leading analysts of the “Af-Pak” relationship, is not an encouraging one. “Pakistan is now considered the most fragile place in the world… It is the most unstable country and the most vulnerable to terrorist violence, political change or economic collapse,” he writes in his latest book, Pakistan on the Brink.

While it is not yet a failed state, Rashid admits that its multiple long-term and short-term problems seem “insurmountable by the present military and civilian leadership”.

Among the myriad problems are the corrupt and rundown bureaucracy, judiciary and police force and an elite that “lacks all sense of responsibility towards the public, refuses to pay taxes and is immeasurably corrupt”. There is no drinking water for a third of the population, no electricity for up to 16 hours a day and half the school-age children do not go to school, meaning “young men face a future of little promise and are ready to sign on to jihad”.

The judiciary is a “broken instrument incapable of handing down judgments to the real criminals” and retired intelligence officers spread conspiracy theories and blame America on a plethora of high-octane chat shows.

Meanwhile, the West cannot afford to continue the fight in Afghanistan and the question is, in the words of one anonymous Western ambassador, “will there be an Afghan army and civil service to take over when we leave, or will we just switch off the lights?”

Even if you’re optimistic the Afghan state will still be a “basket case” dependent on receiving more than $8 billion (£5 bn) in aid each year, Rashid points out.

Pakistan is not much better, having sought bail-outs from the IMF 11 times since 1988 and completed just one of their programmes (under General Pervez Musharraf in 2001) and remaining dependent on $4.8 billion (£3 bn) in foreign assistance. Debt servicing and defence take up 60 per cent of the Pakistani budget and growth was just 2.6 per cent last year, compared with around 7 per cent next door in India.

Pakistan on the Brink follows on from where Descent into Chaos (2008) – on David Cameron’s summer reading list for his shadow cabinet – left off. It provides a much-needed update on what has happened in Afghanistan and Pakistan over the past four years, particularly the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the rapid breakdown of the US relationship with Pakistan and attempts to make peace with the Taliban.

Rashid is as critical of President Barack Obama’s approach to Afghanistan as he was of President George W Bush in his last book. It was clear that the US gambled on Hamid Karzai losing the 2009 presidential elections and by the time he won, the relationship had disintegrated almost beyond repair.

“Handling a wary president preoccupied with keeping his own head requires a personal touch,” Rashid says of his old friend, before adding that “Karzai was his own worst enemy” who failed to accept that corruption undermined his legitimacy.

The problem is that the leadership in Pakistan is no better. “For too long the military and the political parties have neglected their one single task, which is to make life better for their people,” he concludes.

Rashid’s thesis is that the military is in the driving seat, deciding policy, in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, to the detriment of both nations. That ignores the theory that the military is, in the words of one analyst, “the only institution that really works in Pakistan”, as well as Nato’s Herculean efforts in Afghanistan.

Nevertheless, if Pakistan follows its present chosen path – a “paranoid insecure” state which uses “extremists and diplomatic blackmail” – it will, he warns, “lose everything in Afghanistan”.

This excellent book summarises the challenges faced by both countries – although the solutions are difficult to see. A former Daily Telegraph correspondent in Pakistan, Rashid has an eye for the big picture as well as a journalist’s nose for detail.

Pakistan has enormous latent goodwill and expertise in a generation of young Britons with their roots in Pakistan. Like their neighbours across the Khyber Pass, they have spectacular natural beauty, plentiful natural resources, a strategic position for trade, an evocative history and a people with eyes that sparkle with untapped potential – if only their leaders had more vision.

Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”


Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in Jamaica, the UK, United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and to all the world…

” I’m 83 and I’m Tired “

I’m 83. Except for brief period in the 50’s when I was doing my National Service, I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to ” spread the wealth ” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family ” honor “; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t ” believers “; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for ” adultery “; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that out of ” tolerance for other cultures ” we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia, New Zealand, UK, America and Canada, while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20’s be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I’m tired. But I’m also glad to be 83. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in.

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference.

” I’m 83 and I’m tired. If you don’t forward this you are part of the problem ,


Warm Regards,
