  1. HAIL OF THE ATOMIC BOMBS
    By Allama Muhammad Yousaf Gabriel
    SIR,
    Never in its long history mankind could find itself exposed to so grievous a threat as at present from the atomic devastation. This threat means not only the complete annihilation of life on earth, besides a most disgraceful end of all humanity, all civilization, but also an absolute certainty of the earth being rendered uninhabitable for millions of years to come due to the dispersal of radioactive materials throughout the world as a result of either the fission process carried on in the atomic bomb or the atomic reactors for peace. This world may any moment be subjected to a hail of atomic bombs and destroyed in a matter of days, hours, even minutes inspite of all the futile efforts on the part of mankind to put a ban on the atomic war. The course of atomic energy for peace may not prove nay the less hazardous. Rather the possibility is that in the long run the so-called atomic energy for peace may prove equally if note more destructive and more devastating than the hail of atomic bombs, inspite of all the wishful thinking on the part of these responsible for the adoption of the atomic energy today or tomorrow. The Quran fourteen centuries ago has peophecied the atomic hell and has diagnosed the moral and economic causes of its emergence in the clearest of terms.(Kindly read Surah Alhomaza-104-Quran)

  2. “Obama’s under pressure”. LOL.

    That’s not supposed to happen when you’re president!

  3. Scott, you were on fire in this interview! When are you going to get a talk show on MSNBC or CNN? That would be awesome, a straight shooting, informed, passionate and moral host that doesn’t waste his time with the bullshit Democrat/Republican blame game. One can dream!
