Wholehearted Shi'a posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsAs-Salaam-Alaikum Brothers and Sisters. The article below raises a good question about the double standards being shown in western media outlets. I would like to hear people's opinions and discuss why is this an issue, do White lives matter more than that of an African or Arab? Throughout the year tragedies in the Middle East involving Yemen and Iraq which unfortunately have had hundreds killed and continues to this day is often overshadowed by mainstream media outlets. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/10/double-standards-aren-somalia-171016105300793.html
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم اللهم صلي على محمد وال محمد الطيبين الطاهرين My names Fatima Mohamed I would like to become a member of this great website although my English is not good because its not my first language... so i really apologize. before few years i was sunni but now i am shia Islam alhamdulilaah. first i discovered that the Holy Prophet (S) said: "I am leaving behind me two very weighty things for you. So long as you will remain connected with them you will never go astray after my departure and they (the two things) are heavier than one another. One of them is the Book of Allah and it is a rope which hangs from the heavens to the earth and the other is my progeny, my AhlulBayt (a.s.). Doubtlessly they will never be separated from one another until they come to me at the side of the pond of Kauthar in Paradise". when i saw hadith thaqalayn i really shocked and i asked my self bunch of questions i realized that there is some thing wrong with sunni muslims but upon researching historical facts then i found the truth within shia islam alhamdulilah.. i love imam Ali (as) i love imam Hussein (as) i love Fatima zahraa (as) and i love all holy progeny of Mohammad Rasulullah SAWW. now every thing looks good to me except that i am facing hostility because my society "Somali people" are Sunni they have no idea about shia islam, if you ask them what are shia islam? they probably saying Shia are kafir ... Shia are just like unbelievers!!! so now they are thinking that i am going to hell.. i always say what is the problem if i follow hadith thaqalayn?!! what is the problem if i love ahlulbeyt rasulullah and i follow them?!! i like the truth and justice and ahlulbeyt are the truth and justice.... if i follow ahlubeyt rasullulah i am sure that i am on the straight path.. really i feel bad for my society... May Allah Guide us all to truth and keep us on the straight path. my brothers and sister i would like to write my history or My Journey from Sunni to Shia Islam and insha`alah i will do it soon. Thank you. I love you shia amirul mu`minin Ali bin abii taalib a.s.
If you want proof Mslmanyt, Muslims make sense! What is different is in America or Asia, in Europe or in Africa Yashd. The Muslim knows that Islam is a long time to break boundaries and always has been beyond human geography. Apparently wait for Muslimsto "FAO "They should call it the Red Crescent and the International Famine victims to hear start to move 2 million people are struggling with the death of those, 8 million more in the cache and still fighting famine have left over decorations Msjdman or to have the green light for the month of Ramadan, which towers high over our heads! I'm afraid of how theMuslim call for peace messenger hears that "any course of one night's sleep and his neighbor is hungry, not Muslim," but sleep?
With famine swallowing more areas in Somalia, the country is plunging into historically tragic proportions. More children are dying of hunger every day; international assistance is painfully slow and the international community is inexcusably oblivious of the dire straits threatening the lives of millions in the African country. Among the most heart-rending stories regarding Somalia was the report that over 29,000 children under the age of five have perished over the past three months due to a lack of food and a severe drought that has 3.2 million people in its claws. The United Nations says 3.7 million people face starvation. To crown it all, the combination of drought, conflict and poverty has been conducive to the outbreak of famine. The current drought is the worst in more than half a century affecting the lives of 10,000 Somalis. Over 166,000 Somalis have fled for their lives to neighboring countries such as Kenya and Ethiopia. Kenya and the United Nations have been severely lambasted for the continued closure of a multimillion-pound refugee camp left empty in spite of the crisis which is gradually bringing the African country to its helpless knees. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is accused of evading striking a deal with Kenya to open up a camp that cost international donors $60m (£37m) to build and has been left unused and locked since last November. "To the thousands of desperate Somalis arriving every day, the sight of a fully equipped refugee camp standing empty must be the ultimate rebuke," said Daniel Bekele, Africa director at Human Rights Watch. The New York-based watchdog has demanded that the Kenyan government immediately open up the extra camp adjacent to the existing Dadaab complex of refugee camps in northern Kenya, which now shelters 440,000 people, according to a report in The Independent. The crisis is also exacerbated by piracy in the country. "Absolutely, piracy is very much a concern and not abating at all," the African Development Bank's chief economist Mthuli Ncube told the Guardian. "It hampers the delivery of food aid. Some has to be flown in, which has an impact on cost, or it has to go to ports like Mombasa, Kenya, and then be driven overland, which takes time." A new report by the African Development Bank (AfDB) reveals that piracy has long been a problem for aid efforts to Somalia as 80%-90% of food aid arrives by sea. The World Food Programme (WFP), the UN's food aid agency, reported in 2007 that the ships that could carry food aid had been cut by half because of the grave threat of the pirates in Somali waters. The UN released a report on Wednesday and revealed that cereal prices had reached records high in the Horn of Africa, exacerbating an already precarious situation for the millions of the starving population. The Food and Agriculture Organization also said that price of milk had reached a very high peak. The images of the gaunt faces and twig-like bodies of Somali kids are enough to make every human eye wet with tears and every heart bleed with pain. The US government is spending millions of dollars every day on its warmongering adventures in the region. Only in Libya, it is reportedly spending more than ten million dollars a day. Just imagine in the first four days of the US-led military strike on Libya, about 162 Tomahawk missiles were launched at Libyan targets in the Operation Odyssey Dawn which cost more than $1 million each. The F-15E fighter plane that was lost to mechanical failure cost about $30 million. According to a report published in The Washington Post, experts from the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessment released a study estimating that a limited no-fly zone such as the one established over the Libyan population areas could cost $30 million to $100 million a week. The US has spent millions of dollars on its military escapades in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya. By indulging in different military adventures, the US government keeps lurching from one quagmire to another, leaving the country in debt and financial crisis. However, apart from the costs inflicted on the American citizens, it is also exacting a toll on the whole region by creating insecurity and crisis. Isn't it time for the US government to be jolted into the bitter reality that instead of waging wars here and there in the world and playing havoc with the lives and fates of millions of people around the world and spending millions of US dollars, they could feed the starved Africans and help the global community and, say, be constructive rather than destructive? Isn't it time for the international community to perceive the truth that they need to take speedy measures before it is too late to help the desperate people threatened by starvation in Africa and elsewhere? Let us hope Somalia does not become another case of too little too late.
