Assalamu alaikum:
President Bush two days ago visited the Slave House on Goree Island, Senegal, and said, "For hundreds of years on this island, peoples of different continents met in fear and cruelty. Today we gather in respect and friendship, mindful of past wrongs and dedicated to the advance of human liberty."

"At this place, liberty and life were stolen and sold. Human beings were delivered and sorted, and weighed, and branded with the marks of commercial enterprises, and loaded as cargo on a voyage without return. One of the largest migrations of history was also one of the greatest crimes of history.

"For 250 years the captives endured an assault on their culture and their dignity. The spirit of Africans in America did not break. Yet the spirit of their captors was corrupted."

Please read the whole speech. It is indeed a great speech which must be appreciated. I wish, however, President Bush had met the last freedom fighters of Africa, Nelson Mandela, who is the beating heart of freedom, liberty and justice today. Yes, he did oppose the US attack on Iraq, as did most of the world. But that is where the conflict between words and deeds comes into focus. The US has 2.1 million persons in its jails and prisons, most of whom are disproportionately African-American. We are still struggling and fighting for equality and justice.

One of the slave Imams who was captured from Africa and sold in America was Omar bin Said. His autobiographical diary is on display at the DuSable Museum in Chicago. I experienced some very thoughtful, contemplative moments as I stood by this exhibit listening to the English translation narrated next to it. May Allah have mercy on the soul of Omar bin Said. Please visit this museum and other sites of the civil rights struggle this summer.

President Bush also moved Muslims when after 9/11, he visited an Islamic center in Washington DC and spoke against attacks on Muslims. Those words had real effects on America and gave comfort to Muslims'' hearts. However, since then, American Muslims have been living in a virtual internment camp. More than half a million Muslims in America have been affected by the government''s policies since 9/11.

And whenever I hear such eloquent words about freedom and liberty like those uttered by President Bush in Senegal, I think of not just me and my country, but the rest of the world as well. Muslims are the largest refugees in the world today essentially as a result of their continuous struggle for the right of self- determination, freedom, liberty, and justice.

The sprit of freedom, liberty and justice for all must be kept alive in America at all costs. Read what my friend Rev. Bob Thompson is proposing for us: a new type of freedom ride for America.

Peace
Abdul Malik Mujahid
