What was Osama bin-Laden for Muslims?

I just finished reading Dr. Marranci’s latest article, which he posted to his blog less than a couple hours ago. It’s a pretty interesting read, and should be especially for non-Muslims. In it, he asks the question ‘what was Usamah bin Ladin for Muslims?’ and discusses the typical Western perception of what he (may Allah have mercy on him) represents for Muslims vs. the reality. For those of you interested in reading it, I invite you to visit the Professor’s blog: What was Osama bin-Laden for Muslims? or read the article here in full after the break; up to you.

China, Tibet and U.S.-Sponsored Counterrevolution

SalafiManhaj.com‘s put up a new article related to my recent post concerning the weapons found in Tibetan Monasteries (they actually quote the post in the article). To give a little background on some of current discussions revolving the whole China-Tibet debate, I thought I’d post the following article brother AbdulHaq showed me. I’ve yet to finish the whole thing, but thus far, I’ve found it pretty fascinating, especially if what’s mentioned in it is accurate and true.

The History of Oil

As the caption on GoogleVideo reads, “Robert Newman tactfully documents the real story of the politics of oil … .” Much thanks to brother AbdulHaq of SalafiManhaj.com for emailing me the link to this film.

There isn’t a lot mentioned in Newman‘s presentation that I haven’t heard already (I’ve already read various articles discussing the things he mentions on sites like Information Clearing House and whatREALLYhappened), but it’s still a pretty good watch. The film’s about 45mins long, so for those of you who don’t like sitting through long videos, you’ll have to suffer for a bit to enjoy this one. For those of you who like this kind of stuff, it’d say it’s worth the watch. It doesn’t hurt that Newman’s pretty funny either.

Spy Warnings Issued Over a Quarter?! Canadian Coin Sparks U.S. Paranoia

I was browsing one of the local news websites today and found this rather amusing story (you can read the story here: Simple Canadian Quarter Led To Huge U.S. Spy Warning). Apparently there were spy warnings issued by US Intelligence concerning some top-secret spy technology being used by Canada to spy on the US. The cause of all the controversy? Read more of this post
