There are about ten titles listed here that I wrote this week.
            The new edition of “100 WORD STATEMENTS” on issues of the day is reaching out to over 1500 Media anchors, reporters, editors and broadcasters around the globe and it is good to see acknowledgments. I am thrilled to report that Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Anderson Cooper, Sarah Palin and their likes are following me on the Twitter.  I hope I can tweet enough to be heard with finding pluralistic solutions on the issues of the day.
            Enjoy the weekend, there is a lot to do and each one of us has to do our own share of good in making the world a better place for all.

1. Gaddafi and beyond; a challenge for the Neocons and Muslims

            When I went on Fox’s Sean Hannity Show last week, we were to talk about Gaddafi’s call to Muslims to rise against the White people, here were my talking points.

2. Trusting people to manage their own affairs
With the uprising in the Middle East, no doubt there will be chaos, but people can handle their own affairs, and out of that chaos will emerge a fledgling governance of the people by the people for the people.  It is sheer arrogance to believe that they cannot, they said the same thing about India, Indonesia and several other nations.

3. Sean Hannity, Brotherhood, Spencer, Qur’aan and Ghouse

            Sean Hannity is indeed excited about the Muslim Brotherhood. However he exercises caution and avoids outright condemnation, it is a positive shift in his judgementalistic approach towards anything that is Muslim and Islamic and I admire that. I am glad he brings a semblance of another point of view to the American public, that is a step in the right direction and I welcome it, however you have to have a lot of tolerance to watch  him, for the sake of peace, I have been doing it.   Even though I don’t get equal time, but that time I get has been instrumental in bringing a positive change.

4. Middle East Mistakes by right wingers
President Bush buckled under pressure and blew a chance to nourish democracy in the Middle East by rejecting duly elected Hamas by their people. To make Hamas fit into their agenda they shoved them into an optionless cage, to proclaim claim, “We told you so.” Hamas’ call for destruction of Israel is not acceptable but so is the statements made by Israeli leaders who called for destruction of Palestinians.

5. Muslim politics – Ahmadiyya and Motamar Alislami  (75 comments).

I hope someday, at least in America, our future generation will see the value in coming together as Muslims regardless of our hues, as humans regardless of our religion for doing good and knowing each other (Q49:13).

6. Muslims Condemn Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari

            He was plotting to bomb President Bush’s house – he writes in his dairy, “You who created mankind. Grant me martyrdom for your sake and make jihad easy for me only in your path,” according to court records. Religion inspires one to be a good human and not a criminal. Quraan forbids killing and forbids suicide.

7. Al-Qaeda Raped

            Of course Al-Qaeda deserves to be raped by two more losers and liars; the CIA and Mossad. Have they been right any time from Iran in 1979 to Libya in 2011?

8. Glen Beck barks in the dark

            An idiot randomly says things that may suit one at a given time, but that should not encourage the one to support the idiot, in the long run; he will nail every one unintentionally.

9. TEXAS FAITH: The Blessings and Burdens of Life Online

            Most certainly, I would advocate periods of withdrawal for reflection, family time, prayers or meditation. Call it a “tech Sabbath.” There is a time for everything and whatever you do in life, you should do it wholeheartedly as it brings a sense of composure, integrity and commitment to the task at hand and fulfillment to one’s being.

10. Terrorizing the Terrorists

            Push the Brotherhood or Hamas to the corner with no choices; they have no choice left but to hurt us. We cannot be secure if we keep threatening others; bullying throws our own sense of security out the door.

11. Aljazeera will straighten American Media

            You may disagree with me but a majority of American Media personnel have un-neutralized themselves for a long time. During the Iraq’s shameless shock-n-awe war, the CNN, FOX and other media were truly ‘embedded’ with our government; they became mouth pieces for the government.
