Muslims constitute approximately twenty percent of the total world population. They occupy the most strategic lands on the globe. In terms of mineral wealth, the Middle East has twenty times more petroleum then the two American continents put together. Despite our numeric supremacy, despite our geographical vantage, despite our mineral wealth, more than 60% of all refugees in the world are Muslim. Muslims have to contend with every major "ism" in the world. There is not a single Muslim country free from the yoke of global imperialists.

Locally, Muslims have to contend with media animosity, entrenched immorality and unprecedented levels of crime and murder. The moral downslide of the youth coupled with beastly promiscuity paints a gloomy picture of the leaders of tomorrow. Economically, Muslims tied to the noose of the banker are verging precariously near collapse and bankruptcy. Our inability to adjust our lifestyles and live according to our means simply serves to aggravate the issue. read more

A young man was having some money problems, and needed $200 to get his car fixed and road-worthy again. But had run out of people to borrow from. So, he calls his parents via the operator, and reverses the charge and says to his dad;
“I need to borrow two hundred dollars.”
At the other end, his father says; “Sorry, I can't hear you, son, I think there may be a bad line.”
The boy shouts, “Two hundred. I need two hundred dollars!”
“Sorry, I still can't hear you clearly;” says his father.
The operator cuts in; “Sorry to butt in, but I can hear him perfectly.”
The father says; “Oh, good. YOU send him the money!”
