U.S. Prison-Industrial Complex + New Newsletter

In a recent Press TV appearance, Imam Musa, along with two other guests, discusses the U.S. prison-industrial complex; the situation of Muslim and other activists who are locked away in prison; the injustices that are evident in prison-related statistics; the preposterous "War on Drugs"; and other very important and sometimes-missed issues. The U.S. has the highest prison population in the world--25% of the world's prisoners are found in U.S. prisons (although only 5% of the world population resides here). The number of U.S. prison inmates has more than quadrupled in the last 30 years.

Imam Musa's final comments reflect the subject of our latest newsletter, entitled "Decline and Fall of the American Empire (Part 1)"--click here. It is a very timely read, containing strong projections about America's future based on an assessment of current domestic and global trends. Unfortunately, many of our Muslim leaders have failed to give due attention to this very relevant and critical topic, much less prepared the Muslim community for its implications.
