New Blog that delivers

It seems like everybody and their dog has a blog. Some are really bad; some are pretty good. But most get frustrated when nobody comments on their pages of writing. So with that being said, I’d like to direct you to a blog of a fellow Okie and former Public Affairs soldier. A frequent commenter on this site, Word Girl recently posted 100 things about herself. I don’t think I could do that. Let’s give her some support… she’s an excellent writer.

NEW DOWNLOAD DR. JACK SHEPARD'S VIDEO IN ARABIC WARNING THE SUICIDE BOMBERS THAT THE JIHAD ORGANIZATIONS ARE SENDING THEM TO HELL from www.shepardusgov.com

After downloading video in Arabic take to your local television and radio stations to play, to stimulate the discussion: if a person kills himself or kills innocent men, women, children the Holy Koran says that person will be not a martyr rewarded dwelling in Paradise, but instead, will be condemned to "Dwell in the fires of Hell forever and ever".

Dr. Jack Shepard's warning to the Iraqi insurgents

The flame of Hope should never go out from our lives only through prayer can each of us live a life with Peace, Faith and Love.

DOWNLOAD THE VIDEO IN ARABIC-The Jihad Organizations lie to the insurgents and extremists, kidnappers, hard-core criminals, disgruntled, frustrated and overzealous youth from many Arab Countries by urging them to entering into blind jihads. These Organizations are led by these misguided individuals that only increase the tribulations of the entire Muslim community by not telling to young insurgents that suicide bombings according to the Quran guarantees punishment “in the fire of hell, wherein they shall dwell forever.”

May Allah Bless the Middle East with Peace - Beware of the Edict or Fatwa!

I warn you don't question or add to the Quran, which is the infallible Word of Allah
By Dr. Jack E. Shepard

I warn the militant insurgents and extremists, kidnappers, hard-core criminals, disgruntled, frustrated and overzealous youth from many Arab Countries now fight and killing now mostly innocent Iraqi men, women, and children, you do not fear Allah, if you continue to obey the evil publishing of fatwa (edicts) by religious leaders and scholars. No devout Muslim would willfully attempt to tamper with the word of Allah.

These edicts are blaspheme against Allah and Prophet Muhammad (May Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), you defy the divine assertions that the Quran is complete, perfect, fully detailed, and shall be the only source of religious guidance (6:19, 38, 114 & 45:6-7).Those who do not uphold the Quran, and follow fatwa (edicts) which are false doctrines based on superstition, ignorance, and indefensible nonsensical traditions as the prophet Muhammad (May Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), stated in very strong words, against issuing any religious teachings besides the Quran (69:38-4 . Fatwa were never authorized by Allah or the Prophet Muhammad (May Allah raise his rank and grant him Peace), edicts contradict themselves and can not be added to the Quran, the infallible Word of God. Presently many of the scholars in Iraq are engaging in major acts of disbelief, which takes them out of the fold of Islam in board daylight and in front of all the people, we find fatwa (edicts) from some religious organizations.

Believing in Allah means to believe Him and accept His teaching and His word. Choosing the scholars or the dictionary over Allah reflects a disbelief in Allah and His word (Quran). "They have set up their religious leaders and scholars as lords; instead of Allah....." 9:31 “So after the truth (Quran), what else can there be, save error?” (Quran 10:32)

It is obligatory upon the spiritual leaders and scholars of Iraq if they do not exert themselves in ending this evil of adding to the Quran by publishing fatwa (edicts) they do not fear Allah. Fatwa were never authorized by Allah or the Prophet Muhammad ( May Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), they contradict themselves and contradict the Quran. Believing in Allah means to believe Him and accept His teaching and His word.

We each are living out Allah’s plan; Allah knew each of us before we were born. What ever we do we can not hide it from Allah. As Mohammad once said this one, by his actions was made for Paradise and this one, by his actions was made for the fire of Hell.

The Jihad Organizations lie to the insurgents and extremists, kidnappers, hard-core criminals, disgruntled, frustrated and overzealous youth from many Arab Countries by urging them to entering into blind jihads. These Organizations are led by these misguided individuals that only increase the tribulations of the entire Muslim community by not telling to young insurgents that suicide bombings according to the Quran guarantees punishment “in the fire of hell, wherein they shall dwell forever.” We must ask our selves why in Iraq we do not see the scholars or religious leaders of these Jihad Organizations using themselves as suicide bombers? Because they know “ indeed, whoever (intentionally) killshimself, then certainly he will be punished in the fire of Hell, wherein he shall dwell foreve

Suicide bombing by young uninformed Muslim youths had been carried out almost routinely as a mean of revenge in the Iraq conflict.these young uniformed Muslim youth blindly obey older religious leaders or scholars who take advantage of them because they are so easily convinced to avenge their oppression, occupation and loss of freedom that they have been experiencing all their life to obeying these fatwa (edicts) “which are blaspheme against Allah” and become suicide bombers.

These suicide bombers to not live to see and witness the families members they have destroyed,the killing of someone’s loved ones or neighbors the innocent bystanders who die or are tortured throughout their life, having to live and suffer without legs, arms or their sight without their loved ones or neighbors.

These suicide bombers created an intolerable situation, no permission can be found in Islam to avenge by suicide bombing or by targeting the innocent civilians. These young desperate Muslim youth have been taught what is NOT in the Quran, and what was never promised by Allah in the Holy book, by intentionally) killing themselves, they certainly will be punished in the fire of Hell, wherein where they shall dwell forever and ever.

I pray my Muslim brothers in Iraq will remember these things before Allah announces his verdict on you, presently those who do not fear Allah are blocking the ability of ordinary Iraqi’s to take control of their own country. By continue to inflict misery and harm on their fellow Muslims brothers in Iraq they are guaranteeing that the American Coalition will have to stay in Iraq for years.

These fatwa (edicts) are presently causing limitless grief and sadness for our Muslim brothers in Iraq. These militant insurgents and extremists, kidnappers, hard-core criminals, disgruntled, frustrated and overzealous youth from many Arab Countries that blindly obey these fatwa (edicts) have created a monstrous and inhumane situation unnecessarily in Iraq by killing and harming mostly their fellow Muslim Brothers. Already 1,000’s of Iraqi men, women and children have been already killing by exploding cars or bombs or in the cross fire of shooting , mortar or grenade attacks in streets crowded with Iraqi Civilians. Unfortunately most of the men, women and children who you are hurt and killed most often have nothing to do with anything but are just ordinary Iraqi trying to live, praying for their nightmare to end. Those that follow these fatwa (edicts) how can you call your actions acts of resistance, all your doing is maximizing the suffering of your Muslim brothers in Iraq. In the name of Allah we must immediately eliminate this source of disunity and strife. These religious leaders and scholars who publish fatwa (edicts) are not lords; instead of Allah....." "They have set up themselves as lords; instead of Allah....." 9:31

Our faith is anchored in two fundamental conceptions: imàn (expression of faith) and ihsàn (right-doing) both are absolutely necessary for the establishment of one's faith as a Muslim

Presently you have to understand your actions are not ihsàn; right-doing for the Iraqi men, women and children that you are killing and maiming by exploding cars and bombs in the streets or shooting mortar or grenade launchers into the crowded streets.

Unfortunately the militant insurgents and extremists, kidnappers, hard-core criminals, disgruntled, frustrated and overzealous youth from many Arab Countries who are by f ollowing these fatwa (edicts) and following a blind Jihad in Iraq are only playing into the hands of the American Coalition by guaranteeing them a reason to remain in Iraq for years and years By following these fatwa (edicts) mostly you are hurting and killing our Muslim brothers ordinary Iraqi men, women and children just trying to live. How can you call your actions acts of resistance, all your doing is maximizing the suffering of the Iraqi people and playing into the hands of the American coalition by giving them the excuse to remain in Iraqi for years.

l still hope and pray for an immediate peaceful settlement; as King Abdullah II of Jordan said in an interview, Sept. 29, 2004, "that if the elections in Iraq were held today the Extremists would win. Today in Iraq the best organized factions are the extremists. The results of the election will reflect this advantage for the extremists.

I, myself pray that Allah blesses Iraq and the Middle East with Peace. The moment the elections are finished the Americans will have to begin going home. The most American soldiers are also believers in Allah. Infidels by definition are non believers in Allah; Idol worshipers. They like you are created by Allah with Wives, children and families and would be happier than you to soon be able to return home to their families and loved ones.

We have to remember if we break Allah's law, by obeying false lord’s fatwa (edicts) we move ourselves away from His mercy and lose His support. MY brothers in Iraq you have forgotten that Allah will send upon you humiliation and will not remove it from you until you return to (practicing) our religion (correctly),” Only when we stop killing our brothers and exploding cars in the streets, the kidnapping and murder of people in a manner which contradicts the teachings of Mohammad and was never authorized by Allah which reflects a disbelief in Allah and his word (Quran). These people have to remember there is nothing holy about a war in Islam (submission). If we call a truce and even move up the date of the January elections, the sooner the American Coalition force will have to leave Iraqi soil, ending their occupation and give the Iraqi people the control of their destiny.

Also the present dramatic increase in violence in Iraq has harmed our Palestinian brothers by giving the Genocide Policies of Sharon a perfect cover where he has killed hundreds of our defenseless Palestinian Brothers in the last weeks. Once our situation in Iraqi has stabilized, Sharon Policies of Palestinian Genocide will get the international attention urgently needed, to force him to end his slaughter of hundreds of innocence Palestinians men, women and children immediately.

We must trust in Allah and immediately end the present unholy situation in Iraqi of Muslims brothers fighting and killing Muslim brother. This can be done only by immediate calling a ceasefire in the name of Allah. So we can rush toward elections; that is the only and fastest way to end the present occupation of Iraq, and return Iraqi to the Iraqi People.

May Allah Bless the Middle East with Peace Dr. Jack E. Shepard, founder of People for Peace Group
