A good article on the recent pro-empire rally in Washington D.C. – and although not named, the article references Mr. Hamza Yusuf as spewing imperialist propaganda:
“”A rally in Washington Labor Day weekend to support the people of Syria exposed itself as a puppet show when influential Muslim scholars took the stage and started spewing imperialist propaganda.
The leadership of the Shiites in Lebanon and Iran have revealed themselves to be the political Machiavellian people that they are,” cried one of America’s most popular Muslim scholars (Ed: Mr. Hamza Yusuf) into a mic. “They have revealed themselves to side with the tyrants [Syria’s President Bashar Assad] against the oppressed.”
To be considered a legitimate people’s uprising, on the other hand, the movement should exhibit three points, according to Iran’s Supreme Leader Imam Khamanei: 1) take an anti-imperialist, anti-Zionist stand, 2) be an organic movement of the nation’s people and 2) be of an Islamic character.
“If matters get mixed up then scrutinize the cause and you will know what the effects will be,” advised Ali, husband of Fatima (one of the four perfect women of all times), who had sent their two sons Hasan and Hussain to defend Caliph Osman from rebels in the seventh century.
Unlike revolutionary movements in other Muslim countries, the rebel groups fighting Assad in Syria failed to meet the criteria.
Ironically, the Sheikh was standing in front of the White House while offering his passionate plea to world leaders for peace and justice. Yet, he didn’t feel compelled to turn around and demand his own President stop the bombings that have for years been killing, injuring and displacing millions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, etc. “”
