When the pot calling the kettle black

What an interesting brotherhood displayed by this South Afrikaans and Israelites. Please click here.

I reckon I do have some kinda affinity towards ironic stuff.

Cartoons which incite anger

Tariq Ramadhan's view on this cartoon conflict:The Guardians

Some of the angry protestors in london (at sloane street where the danish embassy situated) displayed their resentment by threatening the danish (and the londoners)with another bombing episode on the placards. I think this is another common mistake made by those muslims who cannot foresee what kind of implication would that bring to anyone who is seen as muslim in the UK ( as well as around the world). And I also agree to Tariq Ramadhan's point of view on how to handle such a sensitive issue of portraying the holy prophet Muhammad S.A.W in a blasphemous way.

Anger may lead to destruction beyond control, be it orally or physically. No wonder we are told by our prophet to always manage our anger and channel it appropriately so as to become our strength in a positive manner. In the hadith, he (the rasulullah) quoted:

Narrated Abu Huraira

Allah's Apostle said, "The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himselfwhile in anger."
