Global Research: “In the Language of Miracles”. The Sociology of Muslim Americans By Barbara Nimri Aziz          {Unfortunately Muslims do not understand the intellective mission and objectives of the Quran and its ways of to build the ideal human society. They reduce Islam to obsolete pagan practices of traditions and rituals, and the belief that it is the way to paradise after death, affirm its rule in the obsolete Sharia. The Quran as a constitution to intellectively interpret, extrapolate and adapt the celestial divine laws ABROGATES all of them. Failure to understand the Quran and insistence to fall in the traps of its 7 century language, especially the false belief that it is the word of God is the cause of practicing and understanding Islam by Muslims and non-Muslims as an antagonist retrogressive religion. Islam is a religion of peaceful coexistence and fair just equitable sharing and giving. It is an extension of the peaceful Abrahamic religion and original religion of Christianity} .

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
