I have been keeping up with the news on Gaza. Everyday there is something worse. Over 820 Muslims have been murdered so far in this 'conflict' with over 3000 wounded. It seems crazy to me that anyone could side with Israel on this, but yet the U.S. Congress has decided to pass a resolution in support of Israel. 390 votes to 5. I hope this is a good wake up call for all of those Muslims who thought voting for these morons would change anything. Guess what? it hasn't. And for those of you would like to check if your local congress person was a supporter of Israel check here: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll010.xml
Our President Elect chooses not to say anything about the conflict using the excuse that there can be only 'one president at a time'. That is the most cowardly thing I've ever heard. He has not held himself back from commenting on every other issue going on right now, what makes this different? So much for him being more 'Muslim Friendly'.
So what can we do? We can pray for out brothers and sisters. We can make dua for them every time we prostrate in salat. We can ask Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala to protect them, give them freedom & security and end the genocide of the people of Gaza.
