Muslims can be proud of...?

American Muslims can be proud of taking the right steps towards integration | www.AmericanMuslimInstitution.org  


On Friday, November 20, 2015, the American Muslims took a bold step in their journey towards being-one with fellow Americans.   

The American Muslim Institution (AMI) led the demonstrations against Terrorism and Daesh on the steps of Lincoln Memorial;  this historic location was chosen to mirror the efforts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who brought a positive change to the American civil society with his immortal, “I have a dream speech" on the very same steps.

It was indeed a symbolic event for American Muslims, and the foundation for a positive change was laid.The next event was held within hours across the White House by ADAMS Center and another one by APPNA at Dupont Circle the very next day. Now, it is gathering momentum.  


The apprehensions and the conflicts Muslims feel is a result of actions and reactions feeding each other. The Media is blamed for amplifying the negative portrayal of Muslims, while our own attitudes have also contributed towards to the feeding frenzy. It is time to change the equation.  

Mother Teresa had said if you want to make peace with your enemies, go talk with them. Praise the Lord, we have begun the process.  Media is not our enemy; they are merely reflecting the fears of a few, some of them have not taken the time to differentiate between religion and its followers, and have mistaken us with the Daesh, Talibans, Al-Qaeda and their ilk. It is our duty to correct these gross errors on a continual basis. God willing, we hope to conduct seminars and workshops with the media to rectify some of the false perceptions about us. Good and healthy communications can always pave the way for better understanding.

We hear, "the proof is in the pudding", indeed it is. In the following links (four videos), listen to the tone of Sean Hannity, Stuart Varney, and Richard Ray of Fox News. They have responded to positive engagement. There is a new emerging language of understanding and support. What has not worked is disengagement; I would rather engage and fail than cause us to dig in our heels.

The American Muslim Institution is formed with three specific goals - work with the media, mitigate Islamophobia and speed up the process of integration. We hope to get to the point where fellow Americans will see Muslims as their neighbors and fellow citizens, committed to fight against violent extremism and to protect the homeland. No more them against us, it will be all of us working together for a prosperous, secure and cohesive America. . 

Since August 4th, we have been written up in nearly 300 media outlets, this event at Lincoln Memorial has produced nearly 60 Media reports-videos and write ups.  You can Google "American Muslim Institution." Insha Allah, we will upload all of them including our own video and pictures on this site www.AmericanMuslimInstitution.org  within a few weeks.

An integrated society functions effectively when we are all on the same page with our uniqueness.  When we demonstrated against Terrorism and Daesh on the steps of Lincoln Memorial, it resonated with fellow Americans; both of us were against the monsters.  When we celebrate 4th of July in the biggest possible way, it will resonate with fellow Americans; both of us become fellow patriots.  When armed protesters head towards Mosques with a confused intent, we can greet them with kindness and caring hospitality, hoist American flags on our mosques grounds, serve grilled hot dogs and water, the hostility will dissipate and they will view us as fellow Americans instead of perceived hostility. We must connect with them instead alienating them. Of course, I suggest our Friday Sermons to teach us in dealing with conflicts in the most simple way.

Islamophobia? Right now 63% of Americans don't see Muslims favorably; we can bring this number down to 32% in 3 years. If you are willing to do certain basic things. I will be happy to give a talk and present practical action plan to your group,  listing seven little and seven big things we can do to shape our future with fellow Americans. We cannot postpone this and live in misery for another decade.

Mike Ghouse with Stuart Varney Show on Fox News

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - 8:40 AM 
Stuart Varney Show on Fox Business
Video link to the show will be added upon availability

These were my talking point, and did not make them all, but a few, that's how it goes.

First of all, I thank you and Jennie Lubart for being the catalyst.   Stuart, your goading did it. We were planning for end of December but we did it now before thanksgiving.  And Jennie, thanks for the PSA’s in support of our event. 



It was a small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for Americans.  It will release a few from the guilt of mistreating fellow Americans who are Muslims.  We are moving towards building a cohesive America where no human has to live in fear of the other. Human beings feel good when they are free from hate and ill-will, and are more like God, just kind and merciful.

I believe that this effort has seeded the momentum for yet another positive movement; acceptance of Muslims as equals in the process of integration and removal of hate and restoration of God within those who were misguided and loaded with ill-will.

Muslims are reluctant to demonstrate for their own rights, but they will stand up for others rights.  As usual we had naysayers, urging us to back off, drop it off, don’t rock the boat. Indeed this is how all moderates act in every group, Chrsitians, Jews, African Americans or Hispanics.

The symbolic location was chosen to mirror the effort of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who brought a positive change to the American civil Society with his famous, “I have a dream” speech.  Indeed, this event seeds the Muslim dream to be contributors and productive citizens of America without the fear of the disappearing few. It was symbolic for us to speak from the same spot seeding a positive change for full integration and acceptance of Muslims.


Evil exists because good people do nothing about it. We the good people wanted to send a clear message to the terrorists, that we are sick of their gangs like, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and their ilk committing evil acts and conveniently passing the buck on to the religion.

Muslims are neither happy with those few gullible fellow Americans who are too eager to buy the poor excuses of these gangs. Instead of punishing these criminals, my fellow Americans are hell bent on finding faults with the religion.

Trump is a bubble that will burst any time, look at the history of our elections in the last 30 years, Americans have never elected irresponsible extremists to the office of the President, and I am not worried about Mr. Flip Flop.

Carson or Trump, need to learn to respect our constitution, and understand why America is one of the most stable and powerful nation – we are a country of Law and order and that is what holds us together.  These whimsical men cannot destroy our country

Stuart you are a smart guy, you will build your ratings by inclusion of all Americans on your show. What you have done is incredible. I have seen emails from the moderate Americans, The Christians, Jews, Muslims and others to watch your show and Hannity when I am on it.

It was a small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for Americans.  It will release a few from the guilt of mistreating fellow Americans who are Muslims.  We are moving towards building a cohesive America where no human has to live in fear of the other. Human beings feel good when they are free from hate and ill-will, and are more like God, just kind and merciful.



Happy thanksgiving, I will have a beautiful story about thanksgiving on our website American Muslim Institution. Org and of course on my blog TheGhouseDiary.com  As a Muslim, I am grateful to the God and our founding fathers for Making America God’s own country.

Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress criticized for sermon denouncing Islam

Dallas Fox News - Mike Ghouse about Robert Jeffress
Video Link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V15q2b_-ZgM



It's scratching the old wounds, Deja vu! Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas is at it again, calling undesirable Epithets about Islam, Prophet and the Quran.

My response has remained the same, condemn the sin and not the sinner. The Pastor has a moral obligation to search for the truth and share it with his congregation for creating harmony in the society.

I have offered him an incentive to have a dialogue in the public. If he can find three errors in Quran that are not about creating just societies, and we agree to it, I'll become a member of his church, if not he has to give up on his rhetoric and join me in creating peaceful Societies. 

His passion can do a lot of good for America if he subscribes to the idea of one nation.

Full story from five years ago is at www.quraanconference.com 

This is an amazing model we have established, there is nothing like this, but a very powerful event.

The interview with Richard Ray of local Fox News was excellent and will be broadcaster tonite at 10:00. If fox cuts out the key elements, I'll rewrite this in full and share.

Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress criticized for sermon denouncing Islam



After the terror attacks in Paris, Pastor Robert Jeffress from First Baptist Dallas denounced Islam, calling it an evil and false religion.
This isn't the first time he's made headlines for fiery rhetoric, and that's why one of his critics calls him "bad for Dallas."
Jeffress says he is faithfully teaching the word of God, and that it's politically incorrect to say the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ, but it's God's truth.
“It is impossible to separate what these eight suicide bombers did from their faith, their religion that inspired them do to do this,” said Jeffress.
First Baptist Dallas is 12,000 members strong.
"These terrorists were not acting in opposition to the teaching of Islam,” said Jeffress. “They were acting according to the teaching of Islam."
Jeffress’ comments sparked a scathing blog post by Dr. Robert Hunt at SMU's Perkins School of Theology, entitled "The Darkness in the Heart of Dallas.”

Jeffress says he is faithfully teaching the word of God, and that it's politically incorrect to say the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ, but it's God's truth.
“It is impossible to separate what these eight suicide bombers did from their faith, their religion that inspired them do to do this,” said Jeffress.
First Baptist Dallas is 12,000 members strong.
"It's certainly the case that members of the Muslim community here in the DFW area perceive that Dr. Jeffress' speech is hateful toward them,” said Hunt. “And, so I think it's fair to call it hate speech."
In his blog, Hunt accuses Jeffress of systematically attacking tolerance and respect for religious minorities.
"I believe all false religions, whether it's Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, are deceptions by Satan to lead people away from the one true God,” said Jeffress. "To tell people that the only way to heaven is through faith in Christ is a message of hate but a message of love…what you've got is a liberal professor at a liberal seminary that really doesn't believe what Jesus said. They don't believe that Jesus was telling the truth that there’s only one way to heaven."
“That's flat wrong,” said Hunt. “I hear that accusation all the time, but the reason is because pastors like Robert Jeffress and his followers simply believe that there’s only a binary world. You either agree with them or you disagree with them. This is not an either or; you're either with Jeffress or you’re against him. It's a matter of asking that he show the dignity and respect for other religions that they deserve and for other religious people that they deserve."
Mike Ghouse of American Muslim Institution has been down this road before. In 2010, he and another Islamic leader met with Dr. Jeffress at First Baptist after similar remarks from the pulpit.
Ghouse says Jeffress has a flawed understanding of what Islam's Quran actually says.
"Whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Islam or Hinduism, God doesn't hate his own creation,” said Ghouse. “God doesn't tell anybody to hate someone else."
Jeffress has written 23 books. His latest, "Not All Roads Lead to Heaven,” will be out soon.

A small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for America.

A small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for America.

It will take me another three days to compile a full report about the rally. The engagement with media is worth sharing. We appreciated and thanked the Media in fulfilling their responsibility of passing the positive message from Muslim Americans to fellow Americans. It was good reporting indeed.  

We had this event in planning for a while, but it happened immediately because of Stuart Varney and his able Assistant Jennie Lubart. I give them credit for being the catalyst for this event. Indeed, I gave a special message during the program thanking Stuart and Jennie, and hope to have that video out soon. 

In behalf of American Muslim Institution a rally was organized on the steps of Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, on Friday, November 20, 2015.  The symbolic location was chosen to mirror the effort of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who brought a positive change to the American civil Society with his famous, “I have a dream” speech.  I believe that this effort has seeded the momentum for yet another positive movement; acceptance of Muslims as equals in the process of integration.


Muslims are sick of the terrorists, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and their ilk committing evil acts and conveniently slapping the blame on religion, and Muslims are neither happy with those gullible few,  who are too eager to buy the poor excuses of these gangs. Instead of punishing them, my fellow Americans are hell bent on finding faults with their religion. This amounts to barking at the wrong tree.

A reporter asked what would be achieved by condemning or demonstrating here at Lincoln Memorial.  My  response was “Evil exists because good people do nothing about it, we the good people are doing something about it; we are condemning the evil acts of ISIS, and sending them a clear message that the world condemns their act,  and that they have no place among the civil societies unless they surrender and give up terrorism, violence and extremism. 

At the National Press Club, Dr. Ben Carson was asked if he verifies the information he relays about Muslims and Islam. The lack of response led us to offer advice and guidance to him, and if he considers the advice, he will save himself a lot of regrets and time on doubling down on the false information, and if he were smart, he can earn at least 3 Million Muslim votes.

TRUMP Knows a large number of his supporters are stupid and believe in him, he is right about that.  I am looking forward to engaging him in a rational sensible common sense dialogue. 

While we are compiling 60+ reports from the rally, I suggest Googling the following phrases “American Muslim Institution” or “American Muslims Lincoln Memorial “Mike Ghouse Lincoln Memorial” for the last 4 days and hope you will find good record of the work. 


It was symbolic for us to speak from the same spot seeding a positive change for full integration and acceptance of Muslims.

As an example, take a look at the following two of the 60 + reports

Mike Ghouse of the American Muslim Institution speaks at a small demonstration against ISIS on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 20, 2015. Religi...

We were covered by all the major media; in addition we had Russian, French, German,  Pakistani, Arabic and other TV and extensive radio coverage.

It was a successful event in planting the seed for the change and the momentum has gained.

Taking the lead and being the first one is not easy, most people are afraid to take the bold step partly due to the bureaucracy but mainly due to strong dissent from one or two members from within the community.  Good ideas and great initiatives are usually killed by a few strong negative voices, we are deeply committed to speak up  and do the right thing, may God help us.

We are the first one in the Nation to “demonstrate against ISIS”, and “Demonstrate against Terrorism” making it easy for others to repeat. Adams Center followed it right behind us at 5:00 PM at the Lafayette Park across white house and the next day, several rallies around the nations took place.

Muslims are going thru the un-prescribed and unprecedented vetting process and Insha Allah, we will soon become an integral part of America.  We will continue to stand up, and all we need is Muslims to participate in theses specific efforts of 1) Joining the rallies against terrorism anywhere by any group, 2)  dealing with media 2) mitigating on Islamophobia and 3) integration into the society and be a part of the American story.

Tonite, I will be speaking to a small gathering about the work of AMI and I will be happy to speak to your groups anywhere in the United States, provided you take care of the stay and airfare. Once we transition from aimlessly talking to actually doing specific things, we can shape a strong and secure America for each one of us.

American Muslims against ISIS gather up on the steps of Lincoln Memorial

Washington, DC, November 19, 2015 – Muslims around the world and particularly Americans Muslims have been sick of the terrorists, particularly the ISIS and the Al-Qaeda guys ever since they started terrorizing the lives of innocent people. We mourn the loss of lives in France, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Nigeria and elsewhere in the world and firmly stand against the terrorists.



Given the short notice prior to the Thanksgiving weekend, the Muslims of Washington, DC have organized a gathering of Americans of different faiths to come together on the steps of Lincoln Memorial and make the statements of condemnations.
We hope this event effectively conveys a message to the terrorists that the world is against them, and that we are all in this together; opposing terrorism and condemning ISIS.  


You are all invited to join us on the steps of Lincoln Memorial:



The purpose of this gathering is to send a clear message to the ISIS and their ilk, that American Muslims are angry about their actions. They are to be charged for the violations of human rights, forcing women into slavery, conversions at gun point, harassment of Christians, Yazidis, Shias, Jews, Sunnis and other minorities, and most certainly creating chaos and abusing the name of Islam. 

We cannot tolerate any of these acts and we urge our president to speak out in behalf of fellow humans,  and give them three days notice to back off, surrender, and repent for their actions or face the consequences.

We invite Americans of all faiths and no faiths to join us in standing up against ISIS.  Yes, we the Muslims are as angry as average American. Indeed, we are all in this together.

We pledge that we are one nation under the flag, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.


Please join us on the steps of Lincoln Memorial.

Fox's Varney Complains That American Muslims Haven't "Demonstrat[ed] On The Streets" To Denounce Terror

We have the plans and we will get it done.
Mike Ghouse
----

Fox News - Stuart Varney: "I'm Simply Saying That Muslims In America Have Yet To Show A Sizeable Street Demonstration Condemning Terror"

On the November 17 edition of Fox Business' Varney & Co., host Stuart Varney complained that American Muslims have not condemned the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, demanding of his guest "a public demonstration of where you're coming from" with "tens of thousands of Muslims" and "a big sign." Varney failed to note that numerous American Muslim organizations have condemned the attacks, calling them "ruthless and senseless acts of violence" and saying ISIS has "hijacked our religion."

If the video does not work, go to the link above and it should
 
 
STUART VARNEY (HOST): Muslims around the world condemning the attacks in Paris on social media. Mike Ghouse is with us, and he's with the America Together Foundation, which represents some Muslims in the United States. Mike, here's what I would like to see, and here's what I think most Americans would like to see. We would like to see tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Muslims, demonstrating on the streets of America, openly, overtly saying no, we reject terror. We reject ISIS. So far, sir, I've not seen anything like that. Will we? 
MIKE GHOUSE: Well, the planning is underway. I think Muslims are getting together to put a beautiful plan together to condemn terrorism. Stuart, every mosque in Washington, D.C., and in the America, we have done the candlelight vigil. Everyone has issued a statement condemning the terrorism. First of all, blaming your religion is the dumbest idea out there.
VARNEY: No, no, no, I am not blaming the religion, sir, I'm not. I'm absolutely not blaming the religion. I'm simply saying that Muslims in America have yet to show a sizable street demonstration condemning terror. I've not seen it, and I think a lot of Americans would like to see it. 
GHOUSE: Well, we are planning on it, as I said earlier. 
VARNEY: When is it going to take place? 
GHOUSE: I'm sorry? 
VARNEY: When is it going to take place? 
GHOUSE: We are planning somewhere towards the end of December or January, throughout America -- 
VARNEY: Why? Why does it take so long? If you feel so strongly about something -- Paris has just been devastated by terror. If you feel strongly about it, if you want to state your position, you get out thereand you do it. 
GHOUSE: Well, we are writing an op-ed, I'm here with you, and today there is a big op-ed coming up. War on terror is the dumbest idea floated ever. Bush terror -- war on terror didn't work. Obama's didn't work. There is an Islamic way to deal with this terrorist and the Islamic way is the right way to deal with now. 
VARNEY: What is it? Tell us now, sir, what is it? What's the Islamic way of dealing with Islamic terror? 
GHOUSE: Absolutely. President Obama to go on the television with the consensus of United Nations and tell Mr. [Abu Bakr al-] Baghdadi [leader of ISIS], you got three days to lay down your arms. If not, we're going to hunt you down and get you. And this - we are doing it for the Islamic way. In Islam, God has created everything in balance. You are messing up with that balance. And because of that, Islam allows you to go get you wherever you are, ambush you, and kill you. We are not intending to kill you, but we are wanting to do is put you on the trial and prove to the world that you are dead wrong. Quran does not support the work you are doing and Islam does not support. It is you are a crazy nut and that's why we are going to get at you. We are going to gas one square mile at a time in Iran and -- not to kill you but to capture you and put you on the trial.
VARNEY: Why don't you, or some of your supporters or some of the people in your organization, just get a sign? A big sign, all walk outside in New York City or Washington, D.C., and say, "Hey, you, ISIS, we're coming to get you. We're going to kill you the Islamic way because you are the scum of the Earth." Would you like to make that kind of -- I'm not being facetious and sarcastic, but I'm waiting for some action here. 
GHOUSE: Stuart, thanks for suggesting that. I will take the lead, we will get this sign made, and we will do it right here in Washington, D.C. And you will be the first one to be informed about the date and time. 
VARNEY: Very good. Sir, that's excellent. We look forward to it, Mike Ghouse, we look forward to it, yes we do. I'm sorry, I'm out of time, and I'm not trying to cut you off here. But that's important, we need a public demonstration of where you're coming from. Not on Facebook, not on some web posting. Out there, in public, where everybody can see you and tell how you feel.
Dealing with Terrorism, the Islamic way
