Minor and Major Signs of the Day of Judgment
The cultural, scientific and economic acheivements of Islamic civilisation over the last 1400 years could be a great inspiration to humanity today. Unfortunately, for centuries, the impact of Islamic civilisation has been obscured and its appeal has been countered by the creation and repetition of the myth of the Barbaric Muslim. From the Pope's imaginative justifications for the first crusade in 1095 down to the untouchable death squad roaming US occupied Iraq in 2007, the myth has been told and retold and it has convinced many of the great threat of Muslim fundamentalism, terrorism, extremism, fanaticism, irrationality, etc. As the threat gets magnified, ever more violent measures become justified as necessary to eliminate it - up to and including genocide itself. Wars and sanctions that have killed millions of Muslims have been justified with many pretexts that turned out to be untrue, but the main false pretext is the myth of Muslim barbarism. In this Book, S E Al-Djazairi complements his substantial works on Islamic Civilisation by detailing the nature of this myth, how it was built through the ages and what forms it takes today. He demonstrates the fallacies at the heart of each of its aspects including the charges of intolerance, oppression of women, slave trading, cruelty to captives, Muslim inferiority etc. after refuting these claims he shows the real aims of those who propagate and benefit from them

You would likely find the prison environment to be boring.
The color scheme of the place - an exotic array of grays and off-whites - itself does wonders in dulling the mind. Most people cannot live without entertainment, and entertainment options are limited in here. Prisoners typically opt for TV. Since I don't watch much TV, I thus spend quite a bit of time in my cell reading.

One of Australia's toughest jails was in lockdown on Sunday after Muslim inmates shouting 'Allah Akbar' sparked a riot.
Prison officers at Goulburn jail, in NSW, were forced to use tear gas to control inmates, who were armed with homemade weapons, when they broke down an internal fence and went on the rampage.
The Daily Telegraph reports the worst Australian prison riot in 10 years erupted when a number of the prison's Muslim inmates refused to line up for the afternoon muster after privileges were denied.

The announcement by Prime Minister Tony Abbott that he is raising Australia's terror threat level from medium to high comes as no shock after unraveling as well as heavily spruiking newly proposed anti-terror legislation throughout the past few weeks. Legislation whose draconian nature may prove more destructive than protective to the Australian community.

TODAY’S police terror raids in Brisbane and Sydney are destructive to the rights of suspects and the arrested, according to Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA).
ALA spokesperson and barrister Greg Barns says the safeguards built into the Australian legal system to ensure fairness to all individuals were being damaged by media coverage of the raids.

Terrorism kills fewer Australians than even the most exotic causes of death, yet we’re obsessed with it. The numbers show why we’d be better off focusing on less glamorous subjects.
How serious a threat is terrorism to Australians? We devote billions of taxpayer dollars to it, impose economic costs on ourselves and our industries and sacrifice some of our most basic freedoms for it. So it must be a huge threat to Australia, correct?
