Bulldozing Islamic Heritage

Bulldozing Islamic Heritage

Kahdijah or Khadīja bint Khuwaylid (خديجة بنت خويلد‎) or Khadīja al-Kubra/Khadija the great (circa 555–620 CE) was the first wife of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). As known as Umm ul-Momineen, she  died of an attack of fever on the 10/11 of Ramadhan, ten years after the start of the Prophetic mission (in the year 619 A.D.), 24 years after her marriage with Prophet Muhammad (SAW), and she was buried at Hajun on the outskirts of Mecca. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) dug her grave himself and buried her.

Jannatul Mu’alla is the name of the burial grounds

جنة المعلى – Jannatul Mu’alla pre-1925

The following are as buried there:

* Abd Manaf – Great, great-grandfather of Muhammad
* Grave of Hashim – Great-grandfather of Muhammad
* Grave of Abdul Muttalib – Grandfather of Muhammad
* Grave of Aamina – Mother of Muhammad

Its whitewashed mausoleums were reduced to rubble in 1925 as on 8th Shawaal, 1345 Hijra (August 1925) Jannatul Mu’alla the then Saudi rulers bulldozed the holy places in Jannatul Baqi and Jannatul Mualla in Makkah Muazzama and Madina Munawwarah (the centres of the Islamic World) where holy graves of Prophet’s gone by despite protest by the international Islamic community.

Khadijah’s (AS), house was situated in Sagah Street, which is where the jewelry shops can be found today. Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW), children, Umm Kulthum, Ruqqayah, Fatimah, Zainab, Qasim and ‘Abdullah (RA), were all born there.

Prophet Muhammed’s  (SAW) Tomb – The shrine is to be bulldozed

Islam is the world’s fastest-growing religion. It is also the West’s designated post-Cold War enemy – the target of a genocidal war launched by the 9/11 false-flag operation.

The War on Islam has killed millions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan, and elsewhere. Like the Cold War, the War on Islam is a “low-intensity conflict” fought in various hot spots around the world.

And like the Cold War, the War on Islam was built to last. As Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld never tired of reminding us, the War on Islam (which they ludicrously term a “war on terror”) will “not end in our lifetime.” John McCain called it a “100-years war,” which apparently means it will end on September 11th, 2101.

One wonders what kind of iconic event could happen then, symbolizing the end of the 100 years anti-Islam war that neatly bracketed the 21st century. My best guess: Space aliens, presumably fake ones, will invade earth, forcing all of humanity to unite behind their New World Order overlords. This forecast, of course, assumes that Muslims will not manage to prematurely end the War on Islam and help redirect humanity toward more positive goals.

Right now, the two biggest “hot spots” of the anti-Muslim genocide are in Palestine and Myanmar.

In Palestine, the ultra-extremist right wing grows stronger every year. Just two days ago, the lunatic Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, allied his party with the even nuttier followers of “the Jewish Hitler,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Lieberman’s goal is “population transfer” – a euphemism for a speedy, rather than slow-motion, genocide. Lieberman wants all Arabs, whom he apparently views as subhumans, out of the state of Israel…exactly like Hitler wanted all Jews out of German territory. Since the Palestinians will not leave willingly, having learned their lesson in 1948, Lieberman and his goons are going to have to kill them.

In the delusional minds of right-wing Israelis, the mass murder and expulsion of millions more Palestinians could be accomplished during the “fog of war,” in the event of a regional conflagration. That’s why Israeli extremists, led by Netanyahu, are so eager to attack Iran. (Another benefit of a major Mideast war, from Netanyahu’s perspective, is that it would maintain the US in its post-9/11 state of emergency, and thereby prevent the truth of 9/11 from coming to light.)

And, of course, big wars make big money for the Israelis and their big bankster backers.

What is holding them back? Even without nuclear weapons, Iran has a formidable capacity to retaliate against any Israeli aggression. Using missiles armed only with conventional warheads, Iran could level large sections of Israeli cities, and if necessary even destroy the Dimona nuclear facility, poisoning all of Israel and much of its surroundings. And let’s not get started about targeting US bases in Iraq, and shutting down the Persian Gulf.

Sane Americans, and sane Israelis, agree that war with Iran is off the table.

Meanwhile, the Israelis are bulldozing the West Bank, especially Jerusalem. They are destroying Palestinian homes and turning the Arab inhabitants of Jerusalem into homeless refugees. And they are undermining the foundations of Islam’s greatest architectural monument, the Masjid al-Aqsa, with “archeological digs” – while above ground, Zionist storm troopers regularly blitzkrieg the mosque and brutalize worshipers.

In Myanmar, another focal point of the anti-Muslim genocide, a whole people is being destroyed, without interference from the self-proclaimed “human rights advocates” of the West. Muslim houses, neighborhoods, even whole towns are being burned to the ground.

If the people being exterminated in Myanmar were Jews rather than Muslims, Israel would have nuked Naypyidaw several times by now.

Apparently Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons capable of reaching Myanmar, is not as dedicated to stopping anti-Muslim genocide as Israel would be dedicated to stopping anti-Jewish genocide. Perhaps that is a good thing.

On the other hand, if Pakistan announced that it is targeting Naypyidaw and moving to a higher level of alert, maybe the world would take notice and stop the killing.

As the anti-Muslim genocide rages on all over the world, the Saudis, “custodians” of Mecca and Medina, are making their contribution to bulldozing Islam. They are on the brink of destroying several of the world’s oldest mosques, including those of the caliphs Abu Bakr and Umar, as well as the Masjid Ghamama, site of the first Eid Prayer.

This is the approximate region, outside the Marwah exit, where the house of Ummul Mu’mineen Khadija (r.a.) was located. It was here that the Prophet (s.a.w.) lived from the time of his marriage to her until he emigrated to Madinah.

As the London Independent reports:

Heritage campaigners and many locals have looked on aghast as the historic sections of Mecca and Medina have been bulldozed to make way for gleaming shopping malls, luxury hotels and enormous skyscrapers. The Washington-based Gulf Institute estimates that 95 per cent of the 1,000-year-old buildings in the two cities have been destroyed in the past 20 years.

Apparently the Saudis won’t be satisfied until both holy cities look exactly like Houston, Texas. This is not surprising, since they seem to worship American petrodollars at least as much as God.

The Israelis are always whispering threats about nuking Mecca if the Muslims get out of hand. But the way things are going, the Saudis may beat them to it. By the time the Israelis get there with their bombs, there won’t be anything left to destroy.

The Saudis have already turned the house of Khadijah, the first wife of Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him, into a public toilet. As an insult to Islam, that ranks right up there with idiotic films, obnoxious Danish cartoons, and sick Salman Rushdie fantasies.

Maybe it’s time for riots in Riyadh.

Maybe the radical “al-Qaeda” mercenaries the Saudis are paying to wreak havoc in Syria should go back to Saudi Arabia and overthrow that evil regime, before its ongoing collaboration with Zionists, banksters and imperialists, its support for the nuttiest and most obscurantist interpretations of Islam, and its ongoing demolition of the Islamic heritage, do any more damage to the religion it claims to be protecting.
