A People without a Paper [Quote - 647]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book VII (601-700)

Muslims are a people without a single decent newspaper among the 1,500,000,000 (1.5 billion) of them.

They have pretty much everything else: tallest towers; biggest and shiniest malls; most barrels of oil; all the super-luxury cars in the world; all the race horses they want; and who knows what else.

But a single decent news outlet -- electronic or print? Muslims are still beholden to everybody else in the world.

The Rupert Murdochs of the world don't even care to thumb their noses at them.

Fifty years ago, it made sense when Muslims did their bleats: What can we do? We just don't have the money!

But now, 50 years later, Muslims burn their money to warm their hands on every street corner. Some would say, and how right they would be, Muslim money runs the world. 

And Muslim money fills the bellies that are already too full and bloated and sated.

And yet, not one decent Muslim news outlet in sight.

Conclusion: 

Muslims, like all or most human beings, get what they want. They want their towers and malls and sports and all else. And they get them. 

They fear honest and true news outlets -- and therefore don't want them -- they don't have them.

That simple! 

Not me, but the Qur'an!

People get only what they really want and strive for, says God Almighty in the Qur'an.

Layisa Lil Insaani Illaa Maa Sa'aa!

Aqeedah time, would you say? 

By the way, whatever happened to all that never-ending happy-happy Aqeedah talk? Is it all  hunky dory on the Aqeedah front now?

Let me restate the whole thing:

When it comes to a really, really world-class news operation, Muslims don't have it because they don't really want it. If they wanted it, and then if they had worked for it, they would have had it.

Just like Allah says in the Qur'an.

Allah has given Muslims all the worldly wherewithal with which to make it happen. Except of course the will and the burning desire, which in his infinite wisdom he emptied from their hearts and bosoms.

Layisa Lil Insaani Illaa Maa Sa'aa!
