White House claims Trump has Excellent Health despite Widespread Concerns
Despite general concerns about the physical and mental health of US President Donald Trump, the White House claims after medical review that Trump is in ‘excellent health’. According to The Guardian:
The White House physician pronounced Donald Trump to be in “excellent health” after Trump had his first medical exam as US president on Friday, capping off a week in which his mental fitness for the job has come under intense scrutiny…
“The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday,” Jackson said.
The exam comes as the White House faces a barrage of questions over the president’s contradictory messages on key policies and an incident last month where he slurred some words while giving a speech.
The White House determines what data will be released from the exam. Trump is not compelled to release any information, and there is no template for the presidential exam.
Every age has its false beliefs, and one of the leading false beliefs of our age is the idea of democracy. The democratic ruling system is simply a device for elite vested interests to maintain control over government, in the name of the general population. It is completely fanciful to imagine that ordinary people in Western countries actually determine government policies. Governments are run in accordance with the interests of the wealthy and the powerful, and the job of any head of government is to mediate between these different interests, portraying the resulting policies as popular demands. Trump’s value to the American establishment is exactly that, the ability to present elite interests as if they were demands of the ordinary people, as can be seen for example from his recent elitist tax legislation. Weak physical or mental health has not been an obstacle in carrying out this function.
In Islam, the Khalifah is himself the actual ruler of the state, and must be of potent physical and, particularly, mental health in order that he is able to impose his will and not be influenced by special interests. The condition of the Khalifah’s health is a legal matter that requires ongoing review by the Qadhi Madhalim, the judge of acts of injustice, who is specially empowered to review matters of ruling and governance.
Renewed Unrest in Tunisia
According to Aljazeera:
More than 770 people have been arrested in Tunisia during nearly a week of protests against a government plan to raise taxes and prices of basic goods, according to the UN.
Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the UN human rights office, called for calm and restraint on Friday, and urged Tunisia's government to ensure freedom of peaceful assembly.
"We're concerned about the high number of arrests, some 778 people we understand have now been arrested since Monday, and around a third of those arrested were between the ages of 15 and 20 so very young," Colville told reporters in Geneva.
These recent events in Tunisia are just one more example showing that the entire Muslim Ummah is indeed one body, and the convulsions within it affect the body as a whole. The suffering in Tunisia is not unique to it but is common to all Muslims because they are all suffering from a common complaint, which is the oppression of the non-Islamic systems that have been enforced upon us by the Western disbelieving imperialists led by Britain at that time and now safeguarded by the Western disbelieving imperialists led by America. It is not possible that the revolutionary activities in countries such as Syria, Libya and Yemen should remain restricted to those places and should not incite Muslims across the entire world.
With Allah’s permission the world will soon these uncoordinated convolutions translate into a single movement calling for the overthrow of not only the agent regimes imposed upon us but also the non-Islamic systems and their replacement by a single state spanning all Muslim lands, implementing Islam and carrying its message to the entire world.
Netanyahu’s India Visit to Spotlight Increasing Ties between Jewish and Hindu states
According to Sputnik News:
India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) stated that the country would be exploring new avenues of cooperation with Israel in the defense sector during the upcoming visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israeli Prime Minister will be meeting his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, on January 15.
"India has long-lasting and wide-ranging defense cooperation with Israel. This covers defense equipment, defense industry and technology cooperations which are developing very well. So both the countries will actively explore new areas of cooperation," Bala Bhaskar, Joint Secretary, MEA told the media in New Delhi. Israel is India's third largest defense partner after Russia and the US. Israeli ambassador to India Daniel Carmon has termed it a historic visit, which will strengthen the growing partnership between the two countries.
The two states share much in common. Both are established on Muslim land and both are committed to ruling by, and promoting, religions other than Islam. The Jewish state perpetrates a form of religious apartheid, which it seems Modi’s BJP is taking as a model for an explicitly Hindu state.
Only Islam was successful in making it possible for peoples of all religions to live together in peaceful harmony in a single state, no doubt because of the great respect Islam accords to all religions and committing the power of the state to this objective. Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an:
﴿الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيَارِهِم بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَن يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّـهُ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّـهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّـهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّـهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ﴾
“And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.” [Al-Hajj: 40]
The secularist project also claims to accommodate multiple religions but in fact continually fails in this simply because its real intent is to undermine, weaken and reject all religious belief and so Muslims are naturally provoked to arise against this disbelieving Western creed. It is only this threat from Islam that forces the secular project in Palestine and India to mask itself with the religions of Judaism and Hinduism, even though the leaders of these countries have no loyalty for these or any religion. With Allah’s permission the time is near that Muslims will resume charge of all their lands and return peace and justice to the entire world and reinstate noble values to peoples of all religions.
