Dear President Obama:

This is indescribably terrible news. I think it is about time you, from the top down, should really tell the American people why you believe this. 

Are you beholden to another country? A country that doesn't care about the American people, doesn't care about the Palestinians, about their occupation, we do not understand this. And why should Israel be the only country/state to have nuclear privileges? They are not our ally. Do they help the American people? No.

America and its citizens come before the "needs" of Israel, 3 billion we could use here, in our own country.  

Why is Israel so important to you, to our Congress, Senate, and our politicians? Why do all of you sign on to this racist state? This is why the American people are so disappointed.

Are you following the -pro-Israeli dollars? For sure, it seems like it. 

You signaled change, but there is no change.

Are you a War President like Bush?

 It would seem to be so.

Re: Firing of CNN Editor, Octavia Nasr
Dear folks at CNN:
We are really shocked at this one. Just because most of you are already
Zionized, we regret that you would consider firing one of your employees
only because she praises a cleric who deserved consideration as he was well
respected in the Middle East.
This is brazen and against the rules of this country, USA, where we
believe in Freedom of Speech. Especially when you have Wolf Blitzer
your notorious speaker who was formerly with MOSSAD.
Surely, the world will or already believes that pro-Israel ideologies are
just not going to work.

Khilafah Conference 2010: The Struggle for Islam in the West
Videos and Photographs can now be viewed at:
The Khilafah Conference was a resounding success by the grace of Allah. May Allah reward all those who attended this very important event and insha'Allah benefited.
The conference videos can now be viewed online including a short Video presentation outlining the Western Attacks on Islam.
The conference talks clearly revealed the dangerous pattern of the Western onslaught against Islam and the Muslims. Instead of shying away, the talks exposed in a crystalised manner the real agenda behind these attacks and Australia’s role in these attacks. The Niqab ban was also taken as a case study to demonstrate the underlying Western agenda against Islam. The Conference was rounded up with a thorough explanation of what the Muslim community’s response should be politically, intellectually and spiritually.
Many questions were received in the lively question and answer session. Those which could not be answered due to time limitation will be answered on our website in due course. For now we present all the talks for those who were not able to attend. Any questions in relation to these presentations can be sent to and we will also endeavor to answer them on our website.
