Zaid Shakir – War Is Not The Answer

Zaid Shakir
AI: Summary © The Israeli public protests caused chaos and excesses, including killing previously deceased citizens and poor air quality. The excesses centered around the logic of land without people for people without a land, and the state requires political cleansing to stop protests. The conflict has caused deaths and injuries, and the conflict has resulted in the loss of lives and profits for American and Israeli owners. The conflict has also caused the use of deadly warfare and the potential consequences of war.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:12

as we know there's a great tragedy happening

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

in the Middle East

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

the tragedy

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

that we failed

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

many innocent people in Israel you

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

on October 7.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

any innocent person killed

00:02:33 --> 00:02:41

we should find unacceptable. But Quran tells us men actually that he can cut debonair I live in Israel

00:02:43 --> 00:03:10

00:03:11 --> 00:03:17

for that sake of Adams eldest son killing his know his younger son,

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

Cain killing Abel

00:03:21 --> 00:03:26

We ordained for the children of Israel and for all of humanity thereafter.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:59

Anyone who kills an innocent life takes an innocent life for other than retribution for murder, or spreading murderous corruption in the land is as if they have killed all of humanity. And whoever saves a life is as if they have saved all of humanity and our messengers have come to them with clear proofs. Then even after that, even after that, you see many of them going through the earth working accesses

00:04:00 --> 00:04:05

from Kathy are on minhang body that you can find all the links to be fooled.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:13

Allah subhanaw taala directs the political authorities the authority

00:04:15 --> 00:04:17

excesses and Earth

00:04:19 --> 00:04:23

access had mentioned no court and in many places

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

but in one place,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:35

as General like in this verse from nicotine rom minhang by the dead Catherine rd Lusophone.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:46

So after that, they go through the Earth, working assessing, going beyond the limits transgressing the limits.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:54

Allah Tala designates a specific instance. Fella used to live with a cotton

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

and do not transgress the limits and killing

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

What does that mean?

00:05:06 --> 00:05:07

The Quraysh

00:05:08 --> 00:05:10

of Arabs before Islam.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:14

When one of the tribes members were killed,

00:05:16 --> 00:05:21

sometimes they were killed a member of opposing tribe and opposing tribe.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:24

Right and retribution.

00:05:25 --> 00:05:31

But sometimes they will kill five or 10 members of the opposing tribe.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

Well, that used to fill up and

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

so one of the clear meanings

00:05:39 --> 00:05:42

is if you pursue retribution

00:05:44 --> 00:05:54

then how can an Epson be arrayed enough sin if one kills a person, other than retribution for murder, killing the killer

00:05:57 --> 00:05:58

of a sad infant on

00:06:00 --> 00:06:03

highway robbery that results in death,

00:06:04 --> 00:06:06

this disruption of the public order

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

other than that

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

so unacceptable.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

So yes, we can point

00:06:19 --> 00:06:23

to the excesses of Hamas and killing innocent people.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:32

But that act is not the reason our brothers and sisters in Gaza

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

are being murdered by the 1000s.

00:06:38 --> 00:06:51

That's not the reason. If that were the reason how do we explain 10,000 innocent Palestinians civilians killed during the formation of the State of Israel?

00:06:52 --> 00:07:02

In 1947 48, how do we explain 5000 pound 500 rather, Palestinian villages being torn to the ground

00:07:04 --> 00:07:06

during the formation of the state?

00:07:07 --> 00:07:15

If the unprecedented savagery of her masters attack leads to an unprecedented Israeli response?

00:07:16 --> 00:07:17

It's not unprecedented.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:24

How do we explain 750,000 Palestinians been driven from their home?

00:07:27 --> 00:07:32

How do we explain the premeditated excesses of what's called planned botnet?

00:07:36 --> 00:07:40

How do we explain 80,000 people being bombed

00:07:41 --> 00:07:51

in Beirut in 1982 18,000 dead civilians 30,000 injuries, if this is unprecedented?

00:07:55 --> 00:07:59

How do we explain the massacres in Sabra Shatila?

00:08:02 --> 00:08:05

How do we explain this if this is unprecedented

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

is the very nature of the state.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

These excesses are the nature of the state.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:49

Which goes back to an early design the slogan that no one can deny my American brothers and sisters I said my brothers and sisters I'm an American and as American as apple pie. The question is why? Why should the blues be so? At home here? Because America provided the atmosphere America pride that the atmosphere and the blues were born Bloodborne on the slave man's auction block because the blues remembers what the country forgotten

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

as Gil Scott Heron, not me.

00:08:55 --> 00:08:58

How do you explain it brothers and sisters?

00:09:01 --> 00:09:02

It's not unprecedented.

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

It's a logical expression

00:09:07 --> 00:09:12

of the slogan that all of us who grew up and I'm a convert to Islam.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:15

I grew up here.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

And when we were in elementary school

00:09:20 --> 00:09:27

with singing Hava Nagila, I don't know if I pronounced that right. We were singing Israeli national anthem.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:37

And they told us this is a people are land, a land without people for people without a land.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:42

If you're an American, you're over 40 years old, you know your slogan.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:48

A land without people for people without a land.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:53

Unfortunately for the slogan years

00:09:55 --> 00:09:55

there were

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

millions, low millions

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

231 that have 2 million people that Palestine

00:10:06 --> 00:10:09

that had to be be removed.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:15

So that it will be a land without a people for people without a land.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:21

So the very nature of the state requires ethnic cleansing.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:34

The very nature of the state requires no recognition for Palestinian night. That's the nature of the state, not something I want.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

So it's not unprecedented.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:51

It has precedent. And that precedent is rooted in the logic of a land without a people for people without a land

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

the logic dictated

00:11:01 --> 00:11:05

the Lord bless the people, all of them to know peace to live in harmony.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:11

And May these excesses stop

00:11:14 --> 00:11:16

Hello, this is Philip Hutton.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

Don't go to excesses and killing.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:26

Then after Hamas,

00:11:27 --> 00:11:39

we have the Iron Dome, where the iron fist and the Cast Lead and all these operations he should put killed approximately 2000 Palestinians in Gaza

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

an average of 500 children far surpass now each operation

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

over the years

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

it's not unprecedented.

00:11:58 --> 00:12:05

Many people as a result of these excesses cast into despair and hopelessness.

00:12:08 --> 00:12:09

What can I do?

00:12:11 --> 00:12:14

The first thing you can do is to hate

00:12:15 --> 00:12:20

the slaughter is in your heart. The neuron in Cameroon Karen Sayaka. You will be added

00:12:22 --> 00:12:29

Finlandia stat after Billy sannidhi. felon the skirt after Bill Cosby he was barely can afford amen.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:41

If you see something wrong changing with your hand, if you're unable to then speak out against it, if you still can't hate it in your heart, and that's the lowest level of faith, I'm speaking oh

00:12:43 --> 00:13:02

no one can stop me. If they make protests illegal, like they've done in Germany or France, pro Palestinian protests to protest the massacre of innocent Palestinian lives. I'll be the first woman to go demonstrate.

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

I'll be the first one to break that law.

00:13:08 --> 00:13:12

Because we know we all know obedience to an unjust law.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:21

If they say you speak out, you go into jail be the first one to go to jail.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:36

I'll be the first one to go to jail when we have to speak out. We have to educate our fellow citizens about the realities of this situation.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:41

We have to have the courage go to the library set up a program

00:13:43 --> 00:13:44

go door to door.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:50

This said we don't control the media ramp our president

00:13:52 --> 00:13:55

as a mouthpiece for Israeli propaganda,

00:13:57 --> 00:14:02

beheaded babies and raped women and our president is parroting

00:14:03 --> 00:14:04

those lives.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:25

But he has the media, you have your feet. You can take a DVD produced by the BBC outlining these atrocities and give it to your neighbors. Because organize ourselves put our money together produce them by the millions.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

organize and mobilize in essays.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:34

Take them door to door go to the mall. Give them out to people

00:14:38 --> 00:14:41

we can think outside the box

00:14:42 --> 00:14:46

and come up with creative ways to let people know

00:14:47 --> 00:14:59

the American lady Allison where who they call an anti Semite. She went over there just an average tourists who saw the blockades the humiliation of the Palestinian this

00:15:00 --> 00:15:20

systematic disenfranchisement of the Palestinians, the systematic usurpation of their land. You saw the map the green and less green, less green and a few green dots that remain for the Palestinians when she saw that she came back. And she started an organization if Americans knew,

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

if Americans knew,

00:15:24 --> 00:15:28

exposing them for exposing she's called an anti Semite.

00:15:34 --> 00:15:35

For exposing the truth.

00:15:38 --> 00:15:48

Our president of our mastery for those who known Mike if you're not a Muslim, you might be visiting our president lost his brother in law and his nephew.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:52

Since this bombing started.

00:15:54 --> 00:16:02

A sister My family knows a friend of our families, who is a very big activist for the Democratic Party.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:07

The mentor of Kamla Harris, in San Francisco.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:12

30 members of her family were killed. Last week.

00:16:14 --> 00:16:16

40 members of her family were killed.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:24

The Al Jazeera journalist two days ago, 10 members of his family were killed.

00:16:26 --> 00:16:35

Doing exactly what they were told to leave northern Gaza and go to the south, they went to the south and they are bombed in the South. They get bombed on the roads.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:39

Every single bomb is made in America.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:46

organize ourselves don't pay any taxes. That's something we can do.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:53

Every single bomb Made in America, every single plane made in America.

00:16:55 --> 00:17:03

And we said we're gonna rush more bombs and more and more missiles and more an aircraft carrier groups.

00:17:07 --> 00:17:16

And our Secretary of State stands and says, we're with Israel, as long as America exists.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:20

He pronounced the moral death of America.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:24

Because he said no matter what Israel does,

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

no matter what they do, we're with them.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:32

Meaning we have no moral standard

00:17:34 --> 00:17:38

that we will judge them by no matter what they do,

00:17:40 --> 00:17:44

is 10 to 10 times worse than what they're doing doing now. We're with them.

00:17:45 --> 00:17:47

If the whole world comes together

00:17:49 --> 00:17:56

in the Security Council, and says we want to censor them, we want to stop this fight, we will veto it.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:20

That's the moral death of America, as the great Egyptian poet I met Sharpie in the womb was a HELOC on the Bucky at Wayne, who they had that a HELOC for whom they have all nations or none other than the moral code that supports them. And when their morals No, they will soon follow.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:27

This is a good country.

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

It's a good country.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:55

But it cannot be great without a consistent moral standard. It can't be great. That says the Ukrainians have a right to resist Russian occupation and invasion. But the Palestinians don't have the right to resist Israeli invasion and occupation.

00:18:56 --> 00:18:59

You can't be great with that kind of moral standard.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:08

You cannot be great with that kind of moral standard. You can't be waiting for your long war machine.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:19

To use billions of taxpayers dollars to kill innocent people all over the world.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:23

That's what we do.

00:19:27 --> 00:19:28

We Afghanistan.

00:19:30 --> 00:19:34

And it's not even we don't even care about winning and losing except in Israel.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:40

When we went into Afghanistan who was in power?

00:19:42 --> 00:19:54

The Taliban was in power. When we left who was in power. The Taliban was in power. It's not about winning and losing. It's about filling the coffers of the war machine.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

Afghanistan to $3 trillion for the military.

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

Industrial Complex.

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

That's what it's about.

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

That's what it's about in Ukraine. You don't believe me go to December 28 2022 front page of The New York Times

00:20:14 --> 00:20:16

Ukraine war bonanza

00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

for the war machine.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:26

I didn't write the headlines. The editors of the New York Times wrote the headlines.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:39

If you had if you're in the war business, you can only stay in business. If those wars you can only stay in business if you deplete the inventory.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:49

And we deeply inventory by bombing innocent people all over the world, their justifications barrier.

00:20:51 --> 00:20:58

But the end result for the military industrial complex that our President Dwight Eisenhower warned us against,

00:20:59 --> 00:21:00

did he not?

00:21:03 --> 00:21:11

He warned us against the entrenchment of a military industrial complex he initiated the term in popular culture

00:21:15 --> 00:21:16

we have to speak out against it

00:21:19 --> 00:21:25

we have to speak out against it we have to refuse to participate in it to the best of our ability

00:21:28 --> 00:21:29

and we have to pray

00:21:32 --> 00:21:46

have to pray for innocent people. Innocent is reddens innocent Americans. You want to see what the war machine does? Is not without without irony.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:54

That right at the height of this bombardment using American bombs and weapons and planes

00:21:56 --> 00:22:04

at the macro level, you get this massacre in May outside of are often men at the micro level

00:22:08 --> 00:22:11

because the domestic lobby

00:22:13 --> 00:22:25

doesn't want a ban on assault rifles ZIZ this guy who is he carrying an AR 15 We don't want a ban on assault rifles that are weapons of war

00:22:26 --> 00:22:38

because that means no sales and no sales means no profits and no profits me no dividends for the stockholders and these the CEO getting fired

00:22:41 --> 00:22:47

so 18 Innocent knives are moved down with a military style assault rifle.

00:22:48 --> 00:22:52

So brother the NRA they're gonna get you there already got me.

00:22:55 --> 00:23:00

I've been targeted in the past. Pun intended.

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

No pun intended. Hope the puns not intended. Targeted metaphorically.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:13

When does the madness stop? When does the madness stop globally?

00:23:15 --> 00:23:17

And when does the madness stop domestically?

00:23:21 --> 00:23:22

When does it stop?

00:23:23 --> 00:23:26

Speaking of madness, this guy was a madman.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:55

Again, not because I say so. The army says so the guys in the reserves. He was in training. They flagged them and sent them to a mental hospital. And he still got his hands on an AR 15 When does the madness stop? When do we as a community not one isolated individual as a community stand up and say men got the lead knifes and the lady next to no facade and fell off the face.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:02

A nursing whoever kills an innocent so is is that they kill all of humanity.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:16

All of humanity whoever they are. When do we stand up with one voice? When do we assume the voice of the prophets Nakane are suddenly What? What?

00:24:19 --> 00:24:27

The prophets came with this message. Jesus came with this message. Moses came with this message.

00:24:28 --> 00:24:31

David, Isaac,

00:24:33 --> 00:24:34


00:24:35 --> 00:24:47

the sanctity of innocent life, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came up with this message. And the man went off the NBA. The scholars are the heirs of the prophets.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

Know Allah give us tofi May Allah make things easy for us? May Allah bless all the people, Jews, Christians, Muslims. Christians are

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

Dying in Gaza.

00:25:02 --> 00:25:05

They blew up so many hospitals.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:41

One then they block a Christian hospital. Oops, we didn't do that one. Palestinians did that one. We don't kill Christians. You need to talk to the people in Gaza. Hundreds of Christians have died, then of side by side with their Muslim brothers and sisters, their churches. The third oldest church on earth was bombed by these people and destroyed Greek Orthodox Church in Gaza. The Christian and the hospital was destroyed. Over 500 people killed.

00:25:45 --> 00:26:01

It's not about Christians. It's not about Muslims. It's not about Jews, smart, innocent lives. And it's about a reckless bloodthirsty Policy and Leadership in this country that don't have the moral courage to stand up and stop it.

00:26:03 --> 00:26:15

Now Allah give us the courage Mullah, give us tofi Mel I'll keep sympathy and empathy in our hearts for innocent people. Men, women and children who cry out

00:26:16 --> 00:26:20

rough been a prisoner men heavy has a positive volume and

00:26:22 --> 00:26:32

save us from tyrants and oppressors. May Allah give us Tofik Pulu call me here. There was only one when you sat down with me in your comments talk through.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:45
