With the U.S. government constantly claiming that it is the "leader of human rights" across the globe, it is easy for some of us to forget the sting of its many historical and current injustices, which include the annihilation of Native American peoples and land, brutal trans-Atlantic slavery, Jim Crow laws, torture, discrimination, racial profiling, the monitoring of private communications, illegal arrests and imprisonment (of which our leadership has had a recent experience--more on that soon), and the list goes on... On the upcoming occasion of the first-ever United Nations review of the U.S. record on human rights (though we don't expect much to come out of it), Imam Musa and others offer their thoughts in a recent Press TV discussion.

Also, Imam Musa recently appeared briefly in an RT segment about COINTELPRO--the notorious counter-intelligence program carried out in the U.S. from 1956 to 1971 to monitor, discredit, and disrupt any individuals, groups, and organizations who were perceived as a threat by the U.S. government. Check it out below. To read Imam Musa's writings regarding this FBI program and its relevance to our struggle as Muslims, check out the June 1999 of the As-Sabiqun newsletter here.
