All my emails — and all my website posts — are for everybody who care about them. And they are for all those who say or act as if they are with us.
Those who want to opt out of them, the only favor we ask of them is to let us know, so we will not depend on them.
And so we will not be deceived by them by being in a constant State of Denial about them and about their patterns of behavior.
Denial and deceit. That has been the experience of Muslims for a very, very long time. Muslims depending on Muslims who end up deceiving them.
That one simple formula explains a lot of Muslim history really.
There is a saying in America, and it makes a lot of sense:
Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!
So, I guess we all deserve what we get. For, a Hadith of Sayyidina Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, says:
“A Believer cannot possibly be bitten from the same hole twice.”
Or as they say in English language:
“Once bitten, twice shy.”
So, none of us Muslims should be deceived thinking that our fellow-Muslims are with us when in reality they are not.
And Muslims have been deceived that way for hundreds of years.
That is how Muslims lost many of their wars and even many of their empires.
