Assalamu Alaikum:

I came to admire Prof. Ali Mazrui through the 1986 series The
Africans: A Triple Heritage, jointly produced by the BBC and the
PBS. He is probably the most celebrated African scholar in America.
The author of more than twenty books, he is now Albert Schweitzer
Professor in the Humanities and Director of the Institute of Global
Cultural Studies at Binghamton University, State University of New
York.

He is the latest victims of anti-Muslim hate being generated in the
USA. The 70-year-old professor was detained for more than seven
hours at Miami airport recently. He will never be told why he was
subjected to this treatment. He is not alone. According to a recent
Zogby public opinion survey, 25 percent of American Muslims reported
that they have been victims of anti-Muslim discrimination,
harassment or attack since 9/11. That is more than 1.7 million new
victims of hate in our society.

Please read my statistical survey of how the Justice Department''s
policies are directly responsible for this anti-Muslim behavior. I
have used only the US government''s figures but it still comes out to
be 212,638 American Muslims, while the actual figures which the
Department refuses to give are far higher.

What are the sources of this hate? See James Brooks article “How Did
We Become So Hateful?” although Edward Said’s book Orientalism
remains the best study of this phenomena.

US Attorney General John Ashcroft conducts weekly Bible study in the
Justice Department himself, according to media reports. I wish he
could learn the right lessons from his study. For example something
which we teach our children: “innocent until proven guilty” “due
process of law” “freedom and liberty for all” and “love your
neighbor.”

Peace,
Abdul Malik Mujahid


*** MUSLIM CASUALTIES OF JUSTICE DEPARTMENT''S WAR
The Justice Department refuses to give the real numbers of how many
Muslims have been affected by its policies post-9/11. This new
secret government is now the subject of several lawsuits. However,
the numbers it has issued occasionally depict a horrible picture.
The FBI raided and interrogated at least 27,000 American Muslims;
arrested or detained 6,483; deported 3,208; searched 18,000. In
addition, the NSEERS program (better known as Special Registration)
itself subjected 144,513 to fingerprinting, etc. Read the details

*** THE RHYTHM OF ISLAM SHOWS
According to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), over 1,000
radio talk shows, have participated in a systematic campaign of
stereotyping and racism against Muslims. This often takes the form
of "open mike" programs on talk stations that present all Muslims
and Arabs as being prone to criminal acts and terrorism.

Everyone is talking about Islam. It is about time that American
Muslims started talking as well. The Rhythm of Islam shows are
raising funds for RadioIslam.

Atlanta, San Jose, Chicago, Boston, and New Jersey are organizing
RadioIslam programs this fall in which Dawud Wharnsby Ali, Omar
Simon from Ireland and Irfan Makki from Canada will perform. If you
would like to organize one in your city, this is the time to contact
us. Purchase tickets online or call 1-800-432-4262:
