Ya Hussain!

An injustice so grave, the sky and earth tremble!

And from the depths, arises a NO of the kalima

Remember, resist, refuse, NO to the idols of injustice!

Be either Husayn or Zaynab, either die like him or survive like her

Every day is 'Ashura, and every land is Karbala!

Today, Febuary 19th, is also the 63rd anniversary of Roosevelt's signing of executive order 9066 that resulted in the internment of Japanese Americans. Over 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced into camps mostly in western United States.

Ansel Adams photographed the internment camps, and attempted to present a portrait that countered the vicious demominzation of the Japanese at the time. Click here to view this excellent collection.

Also click here to see a cartoon on renewed calls for internment camps (for Muslims).

World War II ended with the US nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The first, and so far, only use of nuclear weapons of mass destruction. However, the US has continued to use radioactive weapons, "depleted" uranium in it's present day wars.
