00:00:00--> 00:00:26

And that's why this is not the most important thing to me right now. There's a lot of stuff going overseas, all my people are still in bondage all across the world. And there's a lot of dehumanization going on. So, you know, I apologize if I'm not going to be focused on your questions. You know, it's just too much going on in the world. For me just be talking about basketball, I got focused on this [???] 24, seven most of the time, but there's just too much going on as well not to address, you know, is this sad to see this show going on.

00:00:27--> 00:01:03

And it's not just in Palestine. It's not just in Israel. It's all over the world, man. And I feel it, I'm very compassionate to all all races, all cultures, and to see a lot of different people being discriminated from upon or against being discriminated against, based on their religion, color their skin, what they believe in, it's just, it's just that, you know, you know, we all say, we're human beings, and we care. And we're compassionate, but, you know, what are you doing to help? You know, and being in this journey, I'm grateful for opportunity is a blessing. But my goal out here my purpose is to help humanity and I can't sit here and not address that, you know, I don't care which

00:01:03--> 00:01:18

way you stand on either side. If you're a human being then you support, you know, the anti war effort that's going on is a lot of people losing their lives, children, a lot of babies and, you know, that's just what I'm focused on. So if you guys want to ask me a question about the game

00:01:20--> 00:01:28

Assalamualaikum greetings of peace. Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Al hamdu, lillahi, rabbil, aalameen. My special guests Adnan Rashid, how are you my brother?

00:01:30--> 00:01:50

I'm finding hamdulillah thank you so much for inviting me brother, Eddie, historian, academic, somebody who's dedicated his life to speaking out against in justices calling people to the purpose of life. Have I left anything out? Probably a bunch. But is there anything that you want to fill in? I think you've said too much.

00:01:52--> 00:02:27

A lot, a lot more can be said. But what right now, there is oppression, media manipulation. It's so nice to see. This is one of the basketball players from the NBA. You guys. I don't know if you heard of the NBA. Many are silent. But this is one who we believe recently accepted Islam. And he's like, I don't have time for basketball, right? I don't want to talk about basketball. While many of people are playing the Xbox, little kids are getting blown to pieces. What do you think when you hear someone like this, speaking out

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

so that I can hear him I find this to be very encouraging.

00:02:33--> 00:03:02

People have influenced people of following people who have ability to speak, they must speak. It is a basic tenet of Islam to speak out when you see oppression the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a categorical report stated mandra mon mon Rahman C'mon current value of a year Oh my god. Find them yesterday. You probably saw he filed them yesterday for because he was Arnica a happily man. The Prophet said if you see a Moncur and evil

00:03:04--> 00:03:31

and injustice, then you stop it with your hand. If you cannot do so, then open your mouth, use your tongue, use your speaking ability to speak against it. And if you can't do that, then at least consider it bad in your heart. And that is the weakest of demand. So to see people come out and speak up against injustice, oppression, this is very encouraging. Of course, people who have the ability to do more must do more.

00:03:32--> 00:03:57

Not everyone's a politician, not everyone's a general, not everyone is an academic, not everyone's a public speaker. But whatever ability you have, whatever capacity Allah has given you, you know what it is? Use it for the betterment of this planet. We want the world to be a better place we want peace and justice to prevail. And that for that reason, we must speak up. We can't remain silent anymore.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

Sure, tell us a non

00:04:02--> 00:04:28

there's a lot of people who when they see this, this is just blatant blatant injustice happening. You have people like recently you had a Paris Hilton, she actually spoke out it's interesting, you know, oh, heartbreaking. This needs to stop. But then shortly, well, a little while after her tweet was removed. So you have some people who suffer the backlash of speaking out.

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

So I want to start off with just making this clear because a lot of times the attack will come all Muslims hate Jews. All the term anti semitic comes out, even though in history so I want to I want to go to this next clip and just show that there are actually many Jews out there who are actually speaking out against this. I want to show a few clips in and get your reaction to this with the help of the Almighty. My name is Rabbi

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Small Talk with Weiss My name is heinberg sheet. My name is and not Natasha Kamran. My name is Jonathan Rosen head. My name is Huggy and I'm an anti Zionist Jew. And I am an anti Zionist Jew, and I am an anti Zionist Jew, and I am an anti Zionist Jew, and I am an anti Zionist Jew, I support the full rights of the Palestinians. I oppose Israeli apartheid, I am against Israeli racism, and discrimination. I am against the silencing of my voice.

00:05:42--> 00:06:33

I am against the silencing of my voice. I am against the silencing of my voice. For this, I've been called anti semitic. For this, I have been called self hating Jew. For this. I have been called a traitor. But that won't stop me. But that won't stop me. But that won't stop. Let's be clear. Anti Zionism is not anti semitism. Jews and Palestinians are not the enemies. Israel is not acting in my name. Israel is not acting in my name. Israel is not acting in law. What brings you here today to support Palestinian rights, we as Jews are embarrassed to what's happening there in the State of Israel in the Jewish name, and what's your message to the people of Palestine, it shouldn't give up

00:06:33--> 00:06:46

the struggle, they should continue to fight and not give up the struggle against against Israel because my dad, Palestine will be free, because this is truth will succeed by the end. What's your message to the people?

00:06:47--> 00:07:27

I'm an American, and I'm also someone who holds Israeli citizenship. I lived there for three and a half years in my childhood. And I was always told that Israel was only ever defending itself that it was never the aggressor that the Palestinian people were were always the aggressors, and that they only wanted death to all Jews and all of Israel with the wall has been pulled from my eyes. It's not just what's happening now it is what has been happening. From the open air prisons, to the checkpoints, to the blockades to the lack of human rights, water, electricity, the COVID vaccine, all of it children being ripped from their family's homes being stolen by zinus.

00:07:29--> 00:07:35

This cannot continue. Everyone must stand with Palestine. I stand for a free Palestine.

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

This must end and it must end now.

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

That's very touching. It's very deep. What?

00:07:44--> 00:08:30

What do you think when you see that? Fascinating, absolutely amazing. These voices were suppressed for a very long time. Hence the statements that do not suppress our voices. Let our voices come out so that the world can know that this is not an anti Jewish movement. This is a movement against an extremist ideology that wants to wipe out an entire people on from the face of this earth. So this is about confronting extremism, this is about confronting oppression. This is about speaking up against those who do certain crimes in the name of certain people. And I'm so happy to see the Jewish voices to come out to express the views on this to let the world know that whatever the State

00:08:30--> 00:09:16

of Israel is doing to the Palestinians is not in their name. They are not involved. They don't sympathize. They don't even condone such barbarity in the name, because the State of Israel for a very long time has been using the name of the Jewish people, the house of Israel as a chrome card to suppress voices. You see this this, this accusation of anti semitism comes your way every time you open your mouth to criticize the State of Israel, or the Zionist ideology. The accusation immediately that's thrown at you is that you are anti semitic. Not long ago, literally less than 24 hours ago, one of the CNN journalists, she interviewed the Pakistani foreign minister. And he

00:09:16--> 00:09:20

highlighted the fact that the media is very, very much biased

00:09:21--> 00:09:31

towards Israel. And she had the audacity to tell him that you are making an anti semitic statement and he was shocked to hear this, that how can you

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

How can you even attempt to call me an anti Semite when I am highlighting or I'm pointing to a fact? The fact is that the media has been very biased in its reporting when it comes to the State of Israel and its oppression, oppression against the Palestinian people. hundreds of children have died. Innocent people, more than 250 innocent people have been killed in the recent conflict and it's not

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

Conflict By the way, it cannot be called the conflict conflict is between two factions. Here you have an occupying military with immense might and war machine against a people who have slingshots who have stone, at best, you know, what do they have, they don't have a military, they don't have a state, they don't have a political leadership that's effective enough to stop this oppression against them. So where is the conflict? So it is very encouraging to see voices, in particular, Jewish voices, to speak up against the oppression of Israel so that we can all together as brothers and sisters in humanity stand together against this oppression, wherever it may come from, right?

00:10:46--> 00:11:39

whether it comes from Muslims, or Christians, or the Jewish people, we need to stand against oppression together as brothers sisters in humanity. I'm very, very happy to see this, these these voices and these clips, let's go back into history. You're a historian now you can give us some academic facts, not fiction. So before we get into educating people, on the blatant in justices, some examples, the occupation, etc, etc. Let's go because this is what we wanted to start this on the framework that this is not an Arab Palestinian thing, a Muslim, Jewish thing, Muslims, for centuries, were actually the protectors of Jews. So let's go ahead and let's hear and then we get

00:11:39--> 00:11:53

your comments on that Jews themselves. This is something that's from their academics from their sources. And let's hear from the lips of Jews from the past and today, who testified to this fact saving

00:11:55--> 00:12:01

Jewish men and women and children who live in Albanian lands.

00:12:20--> 00:13:05

Now, this is a very long topic. I mean, you can go on and probably write a book on this Gitmo, just in short. Can you talk about these facts how Jews were persecuted and they were driven out of the Christian lands, the Golden Ages of the Jews, and how they fled persecution from the Nazis and how from World War Two even back before then, and after that, how Muslims were Is this a true statement? I mean, that Muslims were the protectors of Jews, historically, academically sound statement? Absolutely. Well, Edie and this statement has been confirmed and verified by many Jewish historians and academics. This is not Muslim propaganda. This is not something Muslim historians have been

00:13:05--> 00:13:48

claiming, or Muslim politicians have been stating, this has been clearly stated by Jewish academics. They have acknowledged that for over 1000 years, when the Jewish people were facing persecution. They were in the diaspora. And during this diaspora, they were scattered all over the world. And they were facing heavy oppression at the hands of the Catholic Church in particular, throughout Christendom, the Jewish people were oppressed. For example, to give you one example, in the year 633. d, there was a Council held a church Council held in the city of Toledo in Spain. This is exactly a year after the prophet of Islam passed away Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam died in the

00:13:48--> 00:14:38

year 630. To see a year after the prophet SAW that in the year 633. See, this council was held in Toledo. And it was decreed in this council that all the children of the Jewish people are to be taken away from them by force. And they are to be raised as pious Christians by the Catholic nuns and monks. In other words, the Jewish people in Spain, what to give away the children by force to be raised as Christians to be forcefully converted to Catholicism. This is why a Jewish historian called Zion lohar, who is a contemporary historian, American historian. In his book, A History of the Sephardic and mytholmroyd. Yuri on page nine he said that when Muslims arrived in Spain in the

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

year 711, the Jews welcomed them as liberators. The Jews opened the doors for them, and then fought for the next 700 years, the Jewish communities in Spain prospered under the domain of Islam under the protection of Islam. In fact, there were times when Jewish influentials became Prime Ministers there was a Jewish prime minister to the most

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

Powerful kailis in the history of Islamic pain of the man, the third who governed in the 10th century CE II was the cave in Cordoba arrival, Caleb to the basket cave in Baghdad. He was the most powerful monarch in Western Europe at the time. He was ruling Spain, Islamic Spain in London. And he had a Jewish Prime Minister called has dementia proof? How is that possible if Muslims were to pursue an anti Jewish policy across the board all the way. So this propaganda or this perception that the Muslims are bloodthirsty, they are often Jewish,

00:15:39--> 00:16:20

you know, lives they are, you know, thirsty for Jewish blood, or we want the Jews to be destroyed or something like that. These are all all ideas spread by the State of Israel as a deliberate policy to justify the crimes against the Palestinian people, they come up with this propaganda that the Muslims are against the Jewish people and Muslims want the Jews to be destroyed. They were, you know, this is this is not acceptable. We have to speak up we have to really talk about the history if that's the case, then what happened to 1000 years, from Al Andalus, from Spain to India, where the Muslim is ruled. Okay, this large stretch of land was governed by the Muslims. Why were the

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

Muslims giving refuge to the Jewish people, in particular, those Jewish people who were heavily persecuted in Christendom.

00:16:29--> 00:17:15

If you if you go further into history, if you want to look deeper, in 2015, the fourth Council for the Lateran Council, you know, that decreed. And it was held in France, that was it was decreed that all the books of the Jewish people are to be burned. And because they are guilty of die side, okay, die side means they killed God. The Jewish people were accused of killing the Christian God, okay, and Christian God is allegedly Jesus Christ. So because Jesus Christ was crucified due to a Jewish conspiracy, as the Gospels indirectly suggest, the Jewish people were accused of that crime. And for that reason, they were persecuted heavily throughout European history. Jewish scholars have written

00:17:16--> 00:17:58

books on this right. There are so many books, there is one book in particular I strongly recommend. It is authored by Mark Cohan, Mark Cohen is a Jewish historian. He has talked about this, the Jewish people under the present and the cross, he talks about, of course, there was no utopia, there was no protection, there was no paradise, so to say, under the rule of Islam for the Jewish people, but the Jewish people themselves, called their experience under Islam, the Golden Age, they call it the golden age of Islam, they call and I have the Jewish historians themselves. For example, if you really want me to quote certain people, I can put quotes up. I mean, let's start with.

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

Let's start with

00:18:04--> 00:18:15

a contemporary testimony from a Jewish rabbi living in Cordoba in the 11th century in 1080s. in Cordoba, a Jewish rabbi called biab Rinpoche Buddha, he states

00:18:16--> 00:18:59

in his 30s, title Kitab al hedaya. He stayed in one of our contemporaries looks for similar miracles. Now, let him examine objectively our situation among the Gentiles, ie the Muslim, in this case, since the beginning of the diaspora, and the way our affairs are managed, in spite of the differences between us and then both secret and open, which are well known to them, let him see that our situation as far as living and subsistence are concerned, is the same as theirs or even better in times of war and civil disturbances, you see, are both the leader and the vulgar peasants toil, much more than the middle and lower classes among us according to our Lord's promise contained in

00:18:59--> 00:19:50

the scriptures. So here we have a Jewish rabbi in 11th century Cordova writing about his status, his life and how, you know how prosperous the Jewish people are in comparison to the Muslims, or the Muslims who may be in, in the in the in in the 12th century, we had a Jewish traveler who traveled to Baghdad. His name was Benjamin Tudela, Benjamin tiroler, wrote, in Baghdad, there are about 40,000 Jews, and they dwell in security, prosperity and honor under the great Caleb at that time, Calif. Alma tanjit. And amongst them are great sages, the head of the academies engaged in the study of the law, he's talking about the the Iraqi Academy's of

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

the Jewish people. You know, some of the best rabbis in the world throughout the Middle Ages were where they found mainly two places.

00:20:00--> 00:20:20

if not more to places, if not more, number one. The best rabbis in the world, the most educated, the most thoroughly trained rabbis in the world are the Jewish people who are guiding the Jewish communities around the world. We're in Baghdad, in Iraq, ruled by the Muslims for so since

00:20:21--> 00:21:00

there was no book burning, like we have modern time we have people burning the books, you know, modern day book burning happening now and in this area. This wasn't happening at that time, even though the Muslims had the upper hand they were ruling. Look as bayamon Bakula stated in his you know, the statement I read from him, he said, the differences are known to Muslims, open and secret they know about us they know about the Jewish law, they know about our beliefs, and yet they do not they don't persecute us. We are living in prosperity. So there were no book burnings in Spain, there were no book burnings in Baghdad, there were no book burning like they were in the Christian world.

00:21:01--> 00:21:13

In the Christian world, the Jewish books were burnt. They were wiped out completely in France. In fact, the Jewish people were banished altogether. They were exiled. They were thrown out of Britain, in

00:21:14--> 00:21:56

the 13th century by King Edward the first and then later on the French King. At the same time, you also manage the Jewish people. Where did they go? Is the question, Where did they find refuge, they found refuge in Spain, governed by the Muslims at the time. And what happened after Spain fell to the Catholic Monarchs in 1492. In the year 4092, the last stronghold of the Muslims called Grenada fell to the Catholic Monarchs. Where did the Jewish people go then, because they were the most heavily persecuted people, once Spain fell entirely to the Christians or the Catholics in this case. So the Jewish people, they left Spanish territory for, again, the Muslim lands, they went to the

00:21:56--> 00:22:13

Ottoman territory, they took refuge in Thessalonica. in Constantinople, and other cities in Asia Minor. They went as far as India, some of the Jewish people went, they took refuge in the Middle East, they took refuge in North Africa, some of the Jewish

00:22:14--> 00:22:59

migrants from Spain, were in Morocco and Tunisia and Libya for until as late as 1948, when the State of Israel was created against the wishes of the Palestinian people, and it was only then when things became better. When the Jewish people felt insecure in the Muslim lands because of the actions of the Zionist movement in the land of Palestine. It was then when this choreo relationship between the Jewish people in general and the Muslims in particular, you're not changed. Hold your thought there. We're going to get to that in a moment. couple more questions. You have what's considered by the Jews almost like the second Moses, the Moses.

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

What's his name the Mondays my morning, my morning?

00:23:06--> 00:23:21

He was someone also who who flourished. And he was considered like the second Moses, and he got educated in Muslim lands, we can go on and on and on. How about this statement? by a modern professor? Have you heard this statement?

00:23:24--> 00:23:29

Islamic jewelry? Absolutely. This is a Jewish Chronicle is that this is

00:23:30--> 00:24:07

in their statement, not from one Jewish academic many. One of them is Bernard Lewis, who was actually Zionist himself, Bernard Lewis was an advisor to the Zionist State of Israel. He also advised the White House Bernard Lewis made the statement who was historian also Jacob Ladner is a well known Jewish historian, a Jewish academic in the us today. He also made similar statements about the fact that the Muslims saved the Jewish people from destruction they were facing at the hands of Christendom at that time, throughout the Middle Ages throughout the Middle Ages.

00:24:08--> 00:24:40

So this doesn't come. It doesn't come as a shock to me. I mean, it doesn't surprise me at all, because I have I have a number of statements in front of me from Jewish authorities and historians who have stated similar things. All right. Now if we go to modern day times, if you watch something like this, tell us would your reaction be the same? There were 14 of them total six girls and eight guys, and they're hitting me in the face. I'm bleeding on the ground, my lips splits open, I'm bleeding and this random stranger hosana scary. jumps in a Muslim American saved us. Amen.

00:24:45--> 00:24:46

Jimmy

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

What do you think when you see that modern day time Hassan jumps up to save, you know,

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

you see Muslim history is full of similar incidents.

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Muslims have been saving people wherever they could. Like you mentioned earlier that during the Second World War, there were many Muslims were saving or they were doing the best to protect the Jewish people. Of course, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel is a propagandist. He's going to is going to use false propaganda to gain sympathy from the world. I mean, his statement was absolutely absurd when he claimed that the Muslim Mufti of Jerusalem convinced Hitler to do what he did. No, that's not the case. The Mufti of Jerusalem didn't cause Hitler to write mind comes the Mufti of Jerusalem didn't advise Hitler to do on what what he ended up doing to the Jewish people.

00:25:43--> 00:26:27

This is This is absurd. To the contrary, what we find is that many, many Muslims throughout the history of Islam, the Muslim civilization, Jew, Jewish people are saved by the Muslim, but so many and so many different places in different times. This is only one example. But you showed me there, right? Look at the Rwandan genocide, go and see the role of the Muslims in Rwanda, when the Hutu and Tutsi were killing each other. The Muslims did not become a party to that genocide, the Muslim role in Rwanda. During the rwandese genocide, it was absolutely amazing. Muslims were saving lives, they were hiding people in masajid, so that they don't get killed by each other. Right? So not only with

00:26:27--> 00:27:03

the Jewish people, Muslims have done it whenever they could. There are so many examples. I'm a historian, there are examples filled in my brain, I can bring quote, upon quote, and we will run out of time. So so this is amazing. I mean, once again, another Muslim comes in and says someone who need to be saved. Okay, so we got that out of the way, we cleared that myth, you know, where people just try to use that, as a red herring, they try to use that argument, oh, they hate us, etc, etc. Historically, that's not the case. today.

00:27:04--> 00:27:41

You have Jews who are also speaking out against this blatant occupation, apartheid, even people like Jimmy Carter, former American president, and many people who just want to stand up for justice. Now, what's kicking a lot of this off many people they fall for the propaganda, they get caught in between, they think all this is just some kind of simple conflict and whatnot, let's get into some of the root of the matter. I want to get your comments on some of these clips, some of these videos that are out there, and then we can take it from there. My house and if I don't steal it, someone else is gonna steal it.

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

So we have

00:27:51--> 00:28:03

this being one of the main root problems here, even acknowledged by the international community by the UN, these illegal settlements. So can you talk about this?

00:28:06--> 00:28:35

You see, all of this started after this injustice was committed in 1917. And it starts with the Balfour Declaration, when in 1917, the British Foreign Secretary wrote a land of Palestine away to people who had no right to take that land. And then under the British Mandate in 1948, Palestine, the land of Palestine was given by force unjustly

00:28:36--> 00:29:08

to the Zionist movement. And since then, the Zionists have been taking land, piece by piece slowly and steadily they are expanding. And if anyone was to look at the map of Palestine from 1948 to 2021, you will see that the territory that was owned or possessed by the Palestinians, it shrunk in size, repeatedly, systematically shrinking slowly. And these settlements are still going on.

00:29:09--> 00:29:51

These settlers who called the recent problem in scheck Jarrah, a neighborhood of Jerusalem, where they are kicking out by four Palestinian families that have lived there for centuries. These these people that come from the middle and come from nowhere, and they walk into a house, randomly chosen, and they tell the family to get out. This is not your house. This is not your land. And you saw the example of that. In that video. These people are random people, random settlers, extremist Jews, walking into homes and telling the Palestinians to get out. This is our land. And they have Yeah, there you go. That's the map. If you look at that map since 1948 onwards, the territory of Palestine

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

has been shrinking. Look at the map in the beginning, the green and then the second image and the third image and look at look at the third, the fourth

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

That's where we are today. gaza strip is tiny strip, and millions of people are being squeezed into the this little piece of land. And on the other hand, we have the West Bank, which is shrinking very fast. So what is left of Palatine? What is left of Palestine? Hardly anything. So, it is being done systematically by using settlers who are actively occupiers settlers. I mean, I don't call them I call them occupied use, they have no right to be in that land. They walk into a Palestinian homes and tell them to get out, or you will, you will be killed. And this is exactly how they're doing it. They are bullying people out of the homes. Okay, they're driving people out of the home. And then

00:30:40--> 00:30:57

they don't want people to defend the land. This is absurd. This is absolutely crazy. What was going on under right under our noses, you know, Security Council is quiet, Western powers, a quiet Muslim world feels powerless is a very desperate situation unfortunate.

00:30:58--> 00:31:22

Okay, when asked, you know, why are they taking the land? We get some of these these are some of the mainstream responses what how would you answer this? Because you you're also someone who is very familiar, who studied who spent a lot of time studying the Bible. And the Jewish sources are you steal more and more Palestinian right? What do you steal more and more Palestinian land,

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

say steal our right?

00:31:25--> 00:31:29

But you came here, they were living here and you came here and

00:31:33--> 00:31:48

look at the history not 10 years, a lot of years, God give us even a god give us this area, then still say within within takes him say hey, really I appreciate.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

We lead them to live here

00:31:54--> 00:31:55

from the Bible. Now.

00:31:57--> 00:31:58

Your thoughts?

00:31:59--> 00:32:42

My thoughts are that this is brainwashing This is mental conditioning. A lot of the citizens of Israel have been conditioned and mentally brainwashed by the state into thinking that God had promised this land to them. There is no such promise in the Bible. God had never said that this land is given to the Zionist. Never It was never. Yeah, yeah. God has never said that this land has been given to the Jewish people for that matter, right? what they refer to is a verse where it states that the land of Canaan or this land has been given to the seed of Abraham. Okay. So the seed of Abraham means the house of Israel as well as the house of Vishnu. Right? Because they are both

00:32:43--> 00:33:27

Abraham's children, Ishmael. And Jacob, were both Abraham's children. So if using that argument, and those those and those particular passages, then by that virtue, the Arabs have more of a right on this land than anyone else. Why? Because Ishmael was the eldest son. He was the elder son of Ibrahim or Abraham. So if they are referring to that particular passage in the Bible, then by that virtue, the Arabs have more of a right than anyone else. This this, this claim is absurd. It doesn't even make sense. Historically, things don't happen like that. Okay. People have lived in a land for 1000s of years, and someone turns up and knocks the door and says, Get out. This land is mine. Bible,

00:33:27--> 00:33:59

which was written more than 2000 years ago, Promises, promises this land to me. And, you know, I am one of those people, the land was promised to This is absurd. It's like Native Americans turning up to your door. Edie today, one of the native Native Americans from the Dakota Territory or somewhere, you know, for Far West, where the Native Americans were driven, and whatever is left of them, whatever remains of them, they come to your house, they knock the door in the ad, get out, isn't my house, you took it from me two centuries ago, are your ancestors to get for me?

00:34:00--> 00:34:39

That makes sense. But that makes sense. That wouldn't make sense. It's like the aborigines in Australia, going to Australia, you know, Australians and knocking the doors and telling them to get out this land belongs to us. And they actually, you know, what they do have, they do have some basis, they do have some basis to say what, what I just stated, because the land was actually taken from them. The land was, but no one took the land from these modern dynasties. A lot of them come from European lands like Poland, yolk, Ukraine and Russia, and other European countries. You know, these people were never promised this land, to my knowledge to my understanding of the Bible.

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

What we see also is many of the people who refer to themselves as Zionist. They are seculars and also people who are just atheists, they don't even believe in God. True. True. A lot of design is a lot of the leadership in Israel doesn't believe in God. They are godless people, hence the Christ.

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

Hence, the fact that they are so arrogant, and they don't care about the world, what the world thinks of them. And they have no morals. If they were people of God, and they cared about the promise of God, then they would be godly. They will do God's work. Instead of doing ungodly work, they would be a godly people look at these people, I mean, we have no problem with them. They are anti Israel, they these Jewish men, who are godly men who come who come out, and they raise the voice, and they express the desperation on what Israel seems to be doing in the name. And I'm so happy to see them that these people are coming out all the time Jewish, it's not just because I'm

00:35:40--> 00:36:01

human, I stand up and condemn all what Israel is doing, not just now, but doing it for decades is because I'm Jewish, I condemn all what's being done, supposedly, in my name. And supposedly, in the name of my religion, the Jewish religion is being misused, sadly, an embarrassingly to commit to justify all these kinds of being committed against the Palestinian people.

00:36:04--> 00:36:16

Now, we want to make sure the authenticity of this translation I don't know if you, you obviously know the Arabic language, but now this is in Hebrew has been translated. And I want to get your take on this.

00:36:17--> 00:36:56

I would, I would advise you not to play this clip, because we cannot confirm the translation even if it may be true. In case, someone turns around and say that we are spreading false propaganda, just to be safe, I would advise you not to play this clip. I've seen this clip. And the first question is, whether the translation is authentic. So So let's talk about I mean, we don't need this clip. We have the actions of the State of Israel, we have we had that ladies speak from our own mouth that okay, the land has been promised to us. Therefore, Palestinians don't have any right here to get out. Okay, that's enough for us. Okay. And this clip you were about to play says pretty much the

00:36:56--> 00:37:11

same thing where the kids are, allegedly are apparently saying the same thing that lady was saying earlier, so we don't need to play that clip. Let's confirm the conversation and we can talk about it. Yeah. Okay. Good. Good advice. Thank you. What do you think? Have you seen this clip?

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

Tell me if they're not all the one is their country back?

00:37:21--> 00:37:43

Well, that's not gonna happen. I'm sorry. So you're telling me that now again, we're not using this as something that is representing all of the Jewish people or the Zionists or whatnot. But children innocent children deserve to die? Yes, because they're in the future are terrorists and hateful towards

00:37:44--> 00:37:50

whether they stop them living now, before they grow and have a weapon? It's simpler.

00:37:52--> 00:38:00

Oh, okay. So it's killing kids. It's like so if you if you have the choice, you would go into hospitals where kids are born and kill them.

00:38:02--> 00:38:09

Everyone killed the last on Gaza. needs to be slit. No wonder no one there.

00:38:10--> 00:38:52

It just has you thinking because we see children being decimated, baited. We've blown the pieces. I mean, hundreds of kids just being, you know, destroyed. So the mindset, we know that there is a clear verse in the Quran killing one innocent human being doesn't matter, Judeo Christian anybody is as if you killed all of mankind. So what do you when you see something like this? You know, the mindset, you know, what's your reaction? This person is probably, you know, mentally, not well, or if he's mentally well, then he needs to be looked at. and Western countries need to know his name. And they need to block his entry into their countries. I'm pretty sure a lot of Israelis walk around

00:38:52--> 00:39:31

freely in western lands because they get free passage. But if people who have these views are walking around freely, I don't I don't see why ISIS is bad, then. Why is ISIS bad? They even I don't know if they said these kind of things. They are bad. Of course, they are bad, we don't agree with them, we have disowned them. Alhamdulillah. By the grace of Allah, we have disowned all people who hold such extremist views. This is extremist extremism of the worst kind. How can you even think of killing children? It is unbelievable. How what kind of a human heart do you have? Are you even a human being?

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

This is the question I asked. How can someone who has blood running through his veins and considers himself to be normal talk like that. This is brainwashing taking place within the state of Israel, where people are being made to think like this. They are becoming extremists. They are becoming dangerous. And these people have very, very dangerous weapons in their hands and look at look, look, look at what he said that all the children of Gaza they need to be wiped out. Imagine

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

He becomes the Prime Minister of Israel. Imagine if he becomes one of the influential people in Israel. And I'm pretty sure there are many people like that. Is this what we are?

00:40:11--> 00:40:45

Is this what we are trying to promote? The word? Is this what is this? Why the State of Israel claimed that it is a democracy is where the State of Israel respects human rights? If you do, then why is this guy free? If it's free? Why is he still free, who's talking openly about killing Palestinian children on screen? Because he feels the protection he needs? He knows that nothing is gonna happen. He knows he's in Israel. If he's in Israel, I don't know where he is. He knows he's not going to be arrested and reprimanded for this. So this is absolutely crazy.

00:40:46--> 00:41:24

This is this is shocking how people can talk like this in this day and age. After all, the destruction we've had for the last 30 years. What have we learned from our human experience of the last 30 years where we had catastrophes of a grand scale, we had iraq war, we have Afghan war we had Vietnam, we have before that we had two world wars, where millions of people died, what have we learned, as humans, from those experiences, things seems to be getting worse, unfortunately, in some people's mind. So this is this is shocking, shocking behavior. And this is brainwashing the worst kind. And whoever is responsible for this must be held accountable. whoever is responsible for this

00:41:24--> 00:41:40

kind of problem, this kind of training with this kind of bot is unbelievable. Shocking, if I'm looking for like, for the ad, if a Muslim spoke like that, from Pakistan, let's say from Palestine, or from Morocco, that would be on the news. Can you imagine that?

00:41:42--> 00:41:54

Yes, I mean, I I can't imagine that I can, if a crazy Nutter a Muslim somewhere sitting in a in a room somewhere the model plastered all over the news, it would be every

00:41:55--> 00:42:00

everywhere it would, it would become the representation of Islam for for a year.

00:42:02--> 00:42:43

And this is this is this is the this is the problem we are facing today. In the world as a as a community, our voices not being heard, because we don't have independent media, we need to have independent media so that our voices can be heard by the western masses, not only not only our own masses, but even the western masses living in the US in Canada, in European lands in Australia, people need to hear what the Muslim community has to say on this thing. And that's only possible when we have independent media when we don't rely on the so called mainstream media that doesn't allow our voices to be heard. That's why we need the media and influence. Here's trends are set. And

00:42:43--> 00:43:06

even other nations can see other nations doing good speaking for justice. And maybe this can be a motivation for them to get on that bandwagon, instead of just remaining complicit by being silent. So it's very amazing to see the Irish people who are really leading. In this example, I want to get your take on this bombing of hospitals, or schools of

00:43:07--> 00:43:20

plants. It is appalling. And if you want to know what the people of Palestine, you're saying that you're speaking on behalf of the people of Palestine, if you want to know what the people of Palestine want, ask the Palestinian farmers.

00:43:30--> 00:43:47

We've seen the most desperate and brutal violations of people's right to protest against injustice, against occupation against the taking of the very ground from under people, Israel is an apartheid state. And if it had been there, know that once you know that it changes you.

00:43:49--> 00:44:01

Would you recommend that? What was your take on that? You know, these are people obviously know what's going on. You know, Irish people are strong people, they're brave, you know, and these are people of integrity, who are speaking out. What are you? What do you think of that? You know,

00:44:02--> 00:44:29

I admire the courage and I admire the, you know, the concern, and I'm so happy and it restores my hope in humanity, that there are people in the Western world who haven't been affected by this consistent onslaught of media propaganda for the last 70 years. For the last 70 years, people haven't been people have been made to think that Israel is Zionist,

00:44:31--> 00:44:38

Zionist extremists have the right one this land and any Palestinian wants, who wants his land back is an oppressor

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

is the culprit is the criminal, right? This propaganda has been going on for the last 70 years and I'm so happy to see that people haven't been affected by that. Maybe they were affected. And when they went to Palestine, like that politician was mentioning that when you go there, it changes you. When you see the oppression when you see the concentration camp of Gaza.

00:45:00--> 00:45:42

When you see what the Palestinians have to go through every single day, the humiliation, the checkpoints, the surging, okay, of people who are occupying your land when you when they search you and they humiliate you, okay. And they're killing you as well, at the same time, you know, this kind of emulation. When people witnessed this, it changes them. That's why they come back. And they become like this. And they are, they are open now about it. I'm very happy that there are people like this, we're coming out and the speeding up, and this is what we need, we need more and more moral, upright, objective, just people to come forward and speak up. There is no room for silence

00:45:42--> 00:45:48

anymore. Silence is consent. Okay, like Martin Luther King said once that

00:45:49--> 00:46:01

when good people don't do anything about evil in the world, then they are also part of the evil, they are part of the problem. So we need the good people to come out and stop this evil from happening.

00:46:02--> 00:46:45

Firstly, in Palestine, and anywhere else, for that matter, we, as humans stand together for justice and peace anywhere in the world, not only in Palestine, it's not only about Palestine, it's about every, every other community, anywhere in the world, wherever people are suffering innocent people, we stand with them. And I'm very happy to see this, this restores it really restores my trust in humanity. And it really brings, you know, a lot of peace to my heart. And my mind, when I've watched these videos, and I really admire this work, I want to thank these people, I want to thank these people for the effort. And the concern for the, for the people of Palestine, we're almost out of

00:46:45--> 00:47:30

time, we got about 10 minutes left, I mean, so it hits home, into the minds, the hearts of people, when we talk about injustice, occupation, some people will lose their mind, if their neighbor is just right on their border and takes an inch of their land, they're going to court, you know, they're fist fighting, you know, things are just going out. So now we get really, you know, just out of our mind, if electricity goes down for you know, our, if, when all this was happening with the food gets, there's a shortage of food. You know, let's just talk about that. So people understand, you know, when people are treated as subhuman, this is what's happening when, on the outside, they

00:47:30--> 00:48:11

talk about, okay, this is a democracy. But when they go for permits, when they go, when they're made, elderly are made to stand in line all day, they have to ask to go to the bathroom. So I'm going in the bathroom theirselves, just from going from one area of the city, that's maybe a 10 minute walk, they have to go through 234 or five checkpoints, you know, on one end, you have water that's just freely available for everyone on the other side over here by the Palestinians, you know, the Muslims, they are even Christians who are Palestinian, they are not given the same water, the same electricity, the same food, people who have been working their whole year, the whole year for

00:48:11--> 00:48:41

their livelihood, like six, for example, to get the olive oil, you know, they're stopped by these by the army and they're made to say certain things, you know, against their religion, you know, to say, very derogatory things against their people, etc, if not all of the the risk all of the, the what they've earned for the whole year, we have stories of this, they've just been, you know, lost. So women, I wouldn't go on and on, or they're humiliated, you know.

00:48:43--> 00:49:11

So just example, so it can hit home. So people, just the average person, they have they thinking that this is just some, you know, fight between two neighbors, it's a conflict, you know, they use these terms as the media manipulation. But this is just clear and blatant oppression for anyone, you know, who just looks into this a little bit deeper. So give us some examples. So it really hits home. So people can be like, wow, this is not hard to figure out.

00:49:12--> 00:49:14

Example of what exactly?

00:49:15--> 00:49:21

Well, I gave a few but when people understand when we say occupation, when we say oppression, right?

00:49:22--> 00:49:59

What does that what does that mean? Like the daily, a daily a day, I have Palestinian someone living in this area, what they go through on a day to day work. I interviewed I interviewed a Palestinian Professor the other day, just about four to five days ago. And I asked him the same question, describe your life. And he said, Imagine living with settlers or a checkpoint in front of you. Okay, there's an Israeli checkpoint on top of the hill and your house is underneath, and they can shoot you anytime at will. And they don't have to answer any questions.

00:50:00--> 00:50:45

They are completely free to do that, right? Imagine if a license to kill has been given to a criminal to commit crimes whenever he feels he can do it, or when whenever he feels that he wants to do it right. And there is no recompense, there is no one to ask questions. Imagine, imagine in that, living in that in that fear. And this is what he said, also, he said, there are, for example, bands of Israeli thugs. I mean, that's what he called them. They were like thugs walking around the streets of Jerusalem, breaking Palestinian property, breaking into cars, damaging houses, breaking glass, right to terrorize the Palestinian people living in Jerusalem. And this is reason, by the

00:50:45--> 00:51:20

way, this is last week, like in the last 10 days, during this conflict, that's what's been happening, right. What they go through on daily basis is absolutely unbelievable. I've been to Gaza. In 2010 hours in Gaza, I saw the destruction with my own eyes. The buildings were destroyed during the bombing in 2008, when the Israelis invaded casa, and they raised many buildings to the ground. And they did not allow cement to go through so that they can rebuild Gaza. That's one thing. And there were restrictions on things like soap,

00:51:21--> 00:52:08

things like coriander, or, or mint, for example, on basic items of daily use the restrictions on them. Imagine if your family or my family was deprived of toothbrushes, toothbrushes, let's say a toothpaste, right? Or something you want to use on every single day. Imagine if we were deprived. Okay, forget about education, medical treatment, or our kidney transplant or you need some some major surgery done to yourself. If you are a patient, you're suffering on diabetes, or blood pressure or you're a heart patient forget about treatment, you really have to wait for a long time for the permission to come through and most in most cases it doesn't come through. So the people of

00:52:08--> 00:52:54

Gaza in particular, they are living in a concentration camp, literally. This is how they describe it. It is a concentration camp. Okay. And to get the daily provisions, they have to dig tunnels underneath underground tunnels into Egypt, and they smuggle, smuggle, okay, I mean, smuggling is a bad word. I mean, that means illegal transport of things. But here in desperation, they have to dig tunnels, underground tunnels, and they come out in Egypt from Gaza. And that's how they get things of the daily use, like the soaps, their shampoos, their pencils, rubbers, things, kids use twice, little things people need for the daily use. Okay, necessities, what we call necessities, forget

00:52:54--> 00:53:41

about toys and luxuries. I mean, things they use on daily basis are coming through tunnels. How would you live like that? And this is happening right now as we speak. It's been happening for the last, since this conflict started in Gaza since Gaza was evacuated by the Israelis A while back. It's been happening since then. So imagine living imagine living like that I saw people with my own eyes, living in fallen houses. Can you imagine a woman with seven daughters living in a house, the roof is half fallen? You do a bombing campaign, the roof had half fallen. And the other half was covering the entire family, a woman a widow living with seven daughters. And she's still trying to

00:53:41--> 00:53:45

educate them. You see what the Israeli government doesn't realize.

00:53:46--> 00:54:03

The Government of Israel is not breaking the spirit of the Palestinian people, they are getting stronger by the day. This like new job. The German philosopher said What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Okay. And this is right in the case of the Palestinians in general and the people of Gaza in particular.

00:54:05--> 00:54:51

Those who survived, they are getting stronger and stronger by the day, this occupation is not going to last forever, they will have to be a resolution we hope there is a peaceful resolution not a devastating one. You have so many Jews who are survivors of the Holocaust who speak out and they they compare this what was done to them by the Nazis that Israel is doing to the Palestinians you know, the sponsored sanction of beatings, oppression, you know, it's just making life so miserable, so oppressive, just to force them to leave to get them out doing everything possible everything disgusting humanly possible that you can do to drive them out to make it so unbearable and liberal.

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

This is the same thing that the the Jews talk about. One in particular is Israel show hock which talks about this a Holocaust survivor and

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

He talks about them himself, and many come out and they

00:55:05--> 00:55:45

speak against this injustice. So I want to I want to just stop. We got a few more minutes. And just a couple things. I want to I want to get your your feedback on this news reporter, it seems like he hits the head on the nail. What are your thoughts? It seems like many politicians, when they are in a hole, they're about to go to jail, they also start to kick things off. What do you think about Netanyahu exploiting this political crisis, as we know, he's only the acting Prime Minister because of inconclusive elections. He's worried about losing office because of possible prosecutions he might face. And that whipping up a security situation or allowing a very dangerous security

00:55:45--> 00:56:34

situation to take place, maybe simply assuming, saving him. What do you think about that statement? What do you think? I think about that, I think that is the case. He will definitely face criminal charges because he has been accused of corruption, despite the fact that he's ruling a state that is that has a history of corruption around the globe. Right. But ironically, his own state or his own people within the political system of the State of Israel are accusing him of corruption. And there is no doubt that he is in in a fear of these prosecutions that may begin after he is deposed from his position if he is deposed, and this is why he's doing what he's doing. This is exactly why the

00:56:34--> 00:57:04

Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, he is often accused of inflating hatred between the Muslims of India and the Hindu right wing to stay in power or to come to power. Right? That is how politicians some politicians, evil politicians work right they use political maneuvering to save themselves so this is what he's doing this is what he's doing nothing yo is no exception is definitely doing that in my opinion.

00:57:06--> 00:57:34

So let's uh, let's go ahead and end with this shear, this sad moment here. But it doesn't stop here for us. And this is a message that Jesus Moses Abraham declassified domestic problem Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him This was on the tongue of the believers here so can you imagine hear? You know the final words? someone tweeted posted, this could be our last hours as the next strikes may kill us.

00:57:35--> 00:58:15

Whoever has grudge against me Please forgive me because I swear I never meant to hurt anyone. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah there's nothing worthy of worship the Creator of the heavens, an Earth, Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger. Let's talk about the statement that was on his believers tongue. This is what life is all about. At the end of the day, you don't see this here this talk but let's let's end with this absolutely amazing statement and What a lucky man. And what a fortunate man rather. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said man karna arciero kalami e la ilaha illAllah. Hello, Jana, whoever, last word are La ilaha illa Allah, He will enter Paradise. And may

00:58:15--> 00:59:00

Allah make this person one of those people. Because apparently, his last words were exactly those La ilaha illa Allah and Allah took him, okay. And Allah made him make that make Allah made him make that statement so that people like us can see and take heat. So brother, this was his life is temporary, this life is very short, live it uprightly live it in a moral way, and always stand for justice. And never, ever stand for injustice. Never ever defend injustice wherever you are, whoever you may be, always stand for justice, because life is short. And we will face a lot one day and Allah will question us about our silence, or even our speaking. So when you speak speak wisely.

00:59:00--> 00:59:05

That's all my that's all I have to say. And the wisest words are lie lie in the block.

00:59:06--> 00:59:45

And this is we're talking about Jewish people and Christians. I mean, this is nothing new. I mean, this is the message that Moses came with, that there's no God is the One God and Moses was the messenger at that time. And then you have Jesus came along. And in that video that we didn't show, they talk about a messiah coming is a whole different topic. I understand that we can open it up another time. But Jesus was the Messiah. He was the not God or literal Son of God. He was the one who came with the law. There's nothing worthy of worship except the one God the Creator, the heavens and earth not worshiping a stick a stone of bone, a human being nothing under the sun, but the one

00:59:45--> 00:59:59

who created the sun and created the moon and all everything in this universe. So that's the message were upon that pure monotheism were the carriers of that legacy. Can you just touch upon that? Absolutely. Yeah, Moses, stated the famous Chairman

01:00:00--> 01:00:33

from the book of Deuteronomy, here Israel the Lord our God is One Lord. And this is exactly what Jesus said in the Gospel of Mark chapter 29, verse 12, Rod chapter 12, verse 29, the gospel of Mark chapter 12, verse 29, when a Jewish man came to Jesus and asked him, Master, what is the first commandment or the most important commandment? Jesus responded, his hero Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord. Allah confirms this in the Quran. By the way, this particular incident is alluded to in the Quran, in chapter five of the Quran Chapter Five.

01:00:34--> 01:01:18

Verses 70 onwards, Allah alludes to this whereby Allah states how do we live in a shutdown regime? What color mercy we are Bernice rile whoever the law had a beaver apoco in the homeland usually Kabila pocket haram Allahu alayhi wa rahmatullah dalemain. I mean, Assad, Allahu Akbar. Allah says that Jesus said to the children of Israel, all the children of Israel worship one God your Lord, and my Lord, to the Quran confirmed these words that are attributed to Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Mark and also the prophet of Islam. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said the same thing to his people, hula, Allah in the lord of prudence, say, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah,

01:01:19--> 01:02:02

and you will prosper, you will succeed. So it was the same call consistently put out by all the prophets. And may Allah bless this brother who passed away with those words on his tongue, and he will be one of those people who will enter the paradise, alas, promised all of us, and He will be with the prophet who came with that called insha. Allah we pray, he came to mind and we just went over a little bit of a time just reminded me on many scholars who are Jewish at the time of Prophet Muhammad, when they looked at his life, they looked at the evidence, you know, they also accepted Islam, the submission to the creator alone, and now worshiping his creation is not true. Absolutely.

01:02:02--> 01:02:30

Many Jewish scholars and Christian scholars throughout the history of the Muslim civilization accepted Islam. In fact, when the Prophet himself was alive, Abdullah bin Salam was a Jewish rabbi in Medina, who accepted Islam having seen the prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad, and he confirmed that what the Bible describes about a prophet to come from Arabia has been fulfilled in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam also odd even had him who was a Christian
