Hello,

Dear Visitor, Wherever you are in the world, Welcome to Around The World forum.

Many people may be surprised that Muslims love Mary (peace be upon her), the mother of Jesus (peace be upon him). In the Quran, no woman is given more attention than Mary(peace be upon her).

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: 'None but a noble man treats women in an honorable manner, and none but an ignoble treats women disgracefully. ' (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

We would like to tell you NOW, a few things about the purpose of our forum: Around The World is twofold. First, it is to promote understanding between people from around the world. Secondly, it is to educate people on Islam, it's beliefs and practices.

We aspire to promote a good online communication experience for our members. I hope that you find your stay here beneficial, as well as enjoyable, and inshaAllah we benefit from each
other.

Is it a crime to feed children?

Our message
The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) — once the largest American Muslim charity — never funded violence. It simply provided food, clothes, shelter, medical supplies and education to the suffering people in Palestine and other countries.

HLF: A victim of 9/11 hysteria
On December 4, 2001, the United States government shut down the HLF, accusing it of financially supporting the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Embarrassing for them, the U.S. government never found a single piece of evidence showing that the HLF financed Hamas. So they changed their accusations. Nearly 3 years later, the U.S. government’s new claim was that the HLF supported organizations — zakat committees — that were somehow linked to Hamas. The closure of the HLF was obviously motivated by politics and fear.
About the trial
The HLF trial began Tuesday, July 16, 2007. The five defendants are Ghassan Elashi, Shukri Abu-Baker, Mufid Abdulqader, Abdulrahman Odeh and Mohammad El-Mezain. These noble Palestinian-American gentlemen are innocent and their only crimes were helping ease the plight of the Palestinians. On Monday, October 22, 2007, U.S. District Judge A. Joe Fish declared a mistrial because jurors deadlocked on all of the counts against four defendants. One defendant, Mohammad El-Mezain, was aquitted on all but the first charge. The government plans to retry the case, starting September 22, 2008.
Are we repeating history?
Something is very familiar about the HLF case, but that doesn’t make it right. Did Japanese-Americans deserve to be thrown in internment camps? Nope. Did African-Americans deserve to eat at segregated restaurants, sleep in segregated hotels or drink from segregated water fountains? Nope. Does the HLF deserve to be persecuted for feeding Palestinian orphans and widows? Again, nope.
Who should really be on trial?
For nearly half a century, Israel has occupied Palestine and denied Palestinians their basic human rights. The occupation has caused numerous horrifying outcomes such as the destruction of homes, the killing of innocent children and even the establishment of checkpoints around the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem. So we ask: If occupation obviously shatters lives, while charity builds them and charity feeds children, while occupation kills them, why is a charity organization — not occupation — paying the price?
