Mental Health Watchdog Demanding Protection of Children and Parental Rights

 Florida law allows for a child of any age to be taken into custody and sent for an involuntary psychiatric examination.

The Florida chapter of CCHR is a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children.

CCHR is asking lawmakers to change how the mental health law is applied to minors to protect children from the trauma of involuntary psychiatric examinations.

The most recent statistics show that 32,763 involuntary psychiatric examinations were initiated on children in 2017 and that some of these children were only 2-years-old.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, March 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parents in Florida are justifiably outraged that elementary school aged children can be handcuffed and carted away in the back of a police car to a psychiatric ward for an involuntary examination. Known as a Baker Act, this is all initiated without the permission or knowledge of parents.

According to the Florida chapter of the international mental health watchdog, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), the seemingly indiscriminate Baker Acting of children is not only a violation of parental rights and the rights of the child but also a human rights abuse.

A Miami Herald story early last year reported that a 7-year-old was treated in this manner after hitting and kicking a teacher during lunch. Only 15 miles from this incident, and on the very same day, a 10-year-old autistic boy begged his teacher not to call the police when he became agitated after being told to make up schoolwork during recess.

According to the Miami Herald article the fourth grader became upset when a teacher told him to make up some homework during recess. The child later told his mother that when he became upset “one of his teachers told the other to call the Baker Act number.”

The article continues, “Kevin knew what ‘Baker Act’ meant. Two years earlier, during another meltdown, teachers at his old school had invoked the Florida law, which instructs police to take people who appear to be mentally ill and pose a danger to themselves or others for an involuntary psychiatric exam. On that occasion, Kevin’s parents had shown up just in time, before police could handcuff him.”

Families of children with special needs, as well as lawyers and activists who support them, affirm that the Baker Act is being abused, traumatizing children.

Allison Hertog who is a special education lawyer states the obvious “,…certainly a child of that age should not be Baker Acted in my opinion because he couldn’t be a danger to himself or others unless he was carrying a weapon. He’s too little.” (1)

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) published this rather damning evidence concerning involuntary psychiatric evaluation of children:

“A subset of children seen in emergency departments (ED) for psychiatric complaints are on involuntary psychiatric holds for danger to self or others, or grave disability due to a mental health condition. These involuntary holds are often initiated in the prehospital setting in the midst of a volatile situation, but in reality, patients may or may not represent a true and imminent threat to self or others or be gravely disabled. To our knowledge, there is no data published on the use of involuntary psychiatric holds in young children. The effectiveness of involuntary psychiatric holds on stabilizing patients with acute psychiatric emergencies has not been evaluated in adults or adolescents, much less in young children.” (2)

“Despite the fact that the effectiveness of involuntary psychiatric holds has not been evaluated, children in Florida and other states are being taken into custody in ever increasing numbers and this is a human rights abuse,” states Diane Stein, president of CCHR Florida.

Armed with information on parental rights and the law, Florida parents are now speaking up on the traumatization of their children due to inappropriate and possibly illegal Baker Acting.

Sandy Liebl spoke out on social media after her 10-year-old autistic son was handcuffed and taken to a facility from his school. (3)

Sande Butler, another Florida mom whose autistic son was Baker Acted at school told ABC Action News, "He's traumatized and afraid of everyone."

Kathy Lovejoy spoke to Fox4 of her grandson being taken from school, handcuffed and transported to a mental health facility two times. Ms. Lovejoy points out that in both cases doctors determined her grandson, born with fetal alcohol syndrome is also autistic.

None of these children should have been Baker Acted, since they suffer from autism and are not considered mentally ill under the law. (4)

In response, CCHR has been asking Florida’s lawmakers to amend the mental health law in order to provide greater protections for children and the restoration of parental rights. Those interested in learning more about CCHR’s campaign to protect children from abusive Baker Acting are encouraged to call 800-782-2878 and to contact their Florida Representative and Senator.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Self-Help Author Veera Mahajan's book "Unreported" Becomes New Tool to Help Spot and Prevent Domestic Abuse

If the abuser has no consequences, they have no motivation to stop. Ultimately, the responsibility lies with the victim; he or she has to stop accepting the abuse.”

— Veera Mahajan, author; "UNREPORTED: Learning to LIVE free"

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the worst things a human being can suffer, is to be terrorized in their own home; a place where for most, is a location of peace, safety, and comfort. For the person living with an abuser, their home is a living hell. Suffering depression and anxiety, afraid that the one they love is going to return home in a bad mood; screaming, yelling, calling them swear words, or even raping or beating them; the victim of domestic abuse feels trapped—and usually is. Oftentimes blackmailed, extorted, manipulated with money, off and on again illusions of love, intimacy, sex, and even brainwashed; the domestic violence victim lives a secret life, torn between tears—and the dream of escaping their real-life horror.

WHO: Veera Mahajan lived with such abuse, for years. One day, she found the strength to get out, and go from victim—to victor. Former publisher of "The Malibu Chronicle," licensed Arbitrator, actress, producer, and domestic violence counselor; Veera Mahajan interviewed numerous women and men for her book UNREPORTED who survived abuse–and escaped.

WHAT: A must-read and a must-have for anyone living with domestic violence, or who are seeking to save others living with it; the book UNRERPORTED is a treasure.

WHY: Unlike many books on domestic violence, UNREPORTED gently helps make the reader “recognize and confront” the abusive situation they are in, that they are often in denial of. Secondly, it teaches the reader that something can be done to free themselves from their abuse, offering them real hope. Thirdly, UNREPORTED educates readers on how to be free from domestic violence.

AUDIENCE: Teachers, Schools, Faculty, Universities, Marriage and Family Counselors, Domestic Abuse Groups, hospitals, churches, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse survivors; all these and more will greatly benefit from UNREPORTED; many of whom are currently using the book in their teachings.

CALL TO ACTION: In 1867, John Stuart Mill reportedly stated that “Bad men need nothing more to advance their ends, than that good men see it and do nothing.” Let us not be one of the good persons who do nothing to help stop domestic violence. Join and work with Ms. Mahajan, getting her outstanding book in the hands of those who need it most. With this simple act, you can help save a person’s life.

$10,000 Prize for Gaslight Game Challenge

The 12th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge. Gaslighting. First place prize: $10,000. Register at: https://gaslight.games/contest Presented by Jennifer Ann's Group, a nonprofit charity producing games to prevent violence since 2008.

The charity Jennifer Ann’s Group is offering a $10,000 prize for a video game about gaslighting

Charity Jennifer Ann’s Group announces the “12th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge” with a 1st place prize of $10,000 for a video game about gaslighting.

Can you create a video game about gaslighting . . . without using violence in the game itself?”

— Jennifer Ann's Group

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, U.S., March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jennifer Ann’s Group announces the “12th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge” with a first place prize of $10,000.

Can you create a video game about gaslighting . . . without using violence in the game itself?

Since 2008, Jennifer Ann’s Group (JenniferAnn.org), an Atlanta based nonprofit charity, has run a game design challenge to produce and publish serious video games through its “Gaming Against Violence" program. The topics for this annual competition have included bystander awareness, consent, healthy relationships, and teen dating violence. The contest is open to all over the age of 13 and receives entries from both the domestic and international video game community.

The goal of the Life.Love. Game Design Challenge is to publish serious video games that engage, educate, and empower teens about healthy relationships. The contest is the longest-running of its kind and has been recognized as a Top 10 Trailblazer program by the National Youth Advisory Board for its focus on prevention of teen dating violence. Video games that have been published through the Gaming Against Violence program have led to two published studies validating their effectiveness at changing unhealthy beliefs and attitudes.

Drew Crecente, Executive Director of Jennifer Ann’s Group, has this to say:

“Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society. Using them as a tool for social change to prevent violence is fitting and also very effective. Adolescents prefer to explore a sensitive issue like dating abuse through self-paced exploration and these free video games are an ideal way for them to learn this critical information. Educators also appreciate the fact that these games, although free, are evidence-based and expert informed. Parents also like that these games are an easy and judgment-free approach to engaging their teenagers about healthy dating relationships.”

Registration for the contest is open now. The contest will run in two rounds with the first round consisting of submitting a narrative about their game idea. Finalists will be selected from this first round and they will be given the opportunity to develop a game based on their game pitch.

The first round game pitches are due by March 31, 2019.

Rules, sign-up information, FAQs, and information about gaslighting are available through the gaslight game contest site at: https://gaslight.games/contest

Several of the previous winning games are available via Jennifer Ann’s Group’s serious game portal at: https://JAGga.me All games are free and can be played in a web browser or downloaded through the app stores.

ABOUT Jennifer Ann’s Group – Jennifer Ann’s Group is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization preventing teen dating violence through awareness, education, and advocacy. The organization has been instrumental in the passing of legislation mandating teen dating violence awareness in schools and has distributed over 1 million free educational materials to schools, churches, and other organizations throughout the U.S. and U.K. at no cost to the recipients.

On February 15 2006, Jennifer Ann Crecente – a high school senior – was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Jennifer was an honor roll student in high school, a camp counselor, a hospital volunteer, and participated in community theatre with her dad. Jennifer Ann’s Group was founded by her father.

Update on Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in Canada

Dr. Paul Saba

Mona happy to be alive 12 years beyond doctors expectations

Alexandre wrongly told that he had lung cancer

In Canada euthanasia and assisted suicide is dangerous with hundreds of patients dying needlessly each year who do not meet government guidelines.

Euthanasia and assisted suicide causes people w to throw away their lives.In Canada hundreds of people die each year who do not meet the guidelines.Assisted suicide promotes dying rather than living.”

— Dr. Paul Saba

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, March 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Paul Saba is a family physician who practices in Montreal, Canada and is President of the Coalition of Physicians for Social Justice. Dr. Saba who has worked both in the United States and Canada warns state legislatures in the United States who are considering legalizing assisted suicide: «Euthanasia and assisted suicide is dangerous and causes needless loss of lives in Canada and around the world. People with many quality years to live, throw away their lives. In Canada there is abuse with hundreds of patients dying each year who do not meet the guidelines. Assisted suicide promotes dying rather than living. »

Predictions of living less than 6 months are wrong in 50% of cases for severe heart or lung conditions. More than ten years ago Mona was wrongly told she had a few months to live with a chronic lung condition. Mona could have been a candidate for assisted suicide. Today with better medical treatment she is happy to be alive and enjoys her grandchildren. https://globalnews.ca/news/2815494/opponents-of-assisted-dying-law-ready-for-court-challenge/

There are lethal errors in medical diagnosis. In 2004, Alexandre Montreuil underwent lung-removal surgery for a misdiagnosed lung cancer which was a fungal infection cured with medicines. When wrongly informed that he had lung cancer, Alexandre considered suicide and would have undergone euthanasia if it had been available in 2004.

Dr. Saba warns: “People who are not well are often depressed and can be easily persuaded to prematurely end their lives. In Canada, the euthanasia and assisted suicide law does not protect patients from ending their lives prematurely because of feelings of hopelessness, lack of a future, being overwhelmed, and the lack of access to timely and adequate medical care services. Thus the process of free and informed consent is not being respected.”

In the province of Quebec, Canada, the government reports a significant increase in the number of euthanasia deaths over the past 3 years with a total of 1664 euthanasia deaths: 5% of the deaths did not conform to the law and another 5% of reported deaths missed important information. In some cases people without a “serious and incurable illness” have been euthanized. (Quebec: Commission sur les soins de fin de vie). 2704 euthanasia and assisted suicide deaths were performed in all of Canada in 2017. (Canada: 2nd and 3rd Interim Reports on Medical Assistance in Dying).

Euthanasia and assisted suicide is illegal in the vast majority of civilized countries around the world whose laws protect the lives of its citizens with conditions that could make them candidates for euthanasia and assisted suicide. Only 6 countries of the world allow euthanasia or assisted suicide representing less than 2% of the world’s population.

The World Medical Association, which comprises 112 countries worldwide, has consistently rejected euthanasia describing this practice as unethical.

Dr. Saba reminds us that overly pessimistic doctors are less likely to admit patients with severe asthma to an intensive care unit. These unadmitted patients are more likely to die (British Medical Journal 2007; 335:1132). “Won’t overly pessimistic and “burned out” doctors (15% of physicians are depressed) persuade people to die by assisted suicide rather than finding better treatments to live?” queried Dr. Saba.

Dr. Saba warns state legislatures in the United States not to follow Canada’s mistake and urges them to vote against assisted suicide and euthanasia. For more information: Dr. Paul Saba M.D. 514-886-3447 pauljsaba@gmail.com

Fifty Years of Making Human Rights a Fact, Not an Idealistic Dream

Celebrating 50 years of human rights accomplishments on the anniversary of L. Ron Hubbard’s birthday bringing alive his comment “human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.”

Rev. Sylvia Stanard announcing Scientology’s new church grand opening in South Africa.

Ms. Beth Akiyama explains how Scientologists are carrying on Mr. Hubbard’s legacy of human rights through the Youth for Human Rights program based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

L. Ron Hubbard: The Inspiration for the Church of Scientology's 50-Year Record of Fighting Human Rights Abuses Around the World Celebrated on his 108th Birthday

It is vital that all thinking men urge upon their governments (for the government's own sake if no other) sweeping reforms in the field of human rights.”

— L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology Founder

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Sounds like the stuff of a Hollywood block buster: Fighting mental health slave labor camps in Apartheid South Africa, defeating a bill to create a “Siberia USA” for dissidents, defending international religious freedom for all and then educating the world on human rights. These were but the highlights of the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office’s celebration of a 50-year history of human rights action inspired by L. Ron Hubbard.

Named by Smithsonian Magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential Americans of All Time”, L. Ron Hubbard inspired important human rights advocacy and education programs globally through his defense of human rights and his insight into the solution to human rights abuses. He famously said, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream” and lived it.

While focusing on the 50 years of promoting the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), attendees were also educated on the background history of Hubbard’s human rights activity and why he considered this document so important.

Following his military service in World War II, Hubbard felt human rights were critical to helping create a lasting peace and in the 1950s he put these principles into the Church’s founding documents. Illustrating how the Church of Scientology’s Creed aligns with the human rights principles enumerated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Rev. Sylvia Stanard, Deputy Director of the National Affairs Office, compared the similarities, including equal rights regardless of race, color or creed.

Pointing to the UDHR as a vital tool in effecting human rights advocacy, Hubbard wrote in the Church of Scientology’s FREEDOM Magazine in 1969: “Very few governments have implemented any part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These governments have not grasped that their very survival depends utterly upon adopting such reforms and thus giving their peoples a cause, a civilization worth supporting, worth their patriotism.” He went on to say, “It is vital that all thinking men urge upon their governments (for the government’s own sake if no other) sweeping reforms in the field of human rights.” In the same issue of FREEDOM Magazine he included a complete copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for all to read.

South Africa

Rev. Stanard gave examples of how the Church has promoted the UDHR’s articles in their advocacy work internationally. She spoke of the Church’s efforts in the 1970s in Apartheid South Africa and how the Church exposed slave labor camps for mental patients, even after the Church’s FREEDOM newspaper was banned by the apartheid South African government one day after these exposes. Working together with many other human rights organizations and faith leaders those slave camps have been closed and Apartheid is a history lesson.

As early as 1961, Hubbard had planted the seed of human rights on behalf of all South Africans by writing a constitution for South Africa calling for “one man, one vote” regardless of race, color or creed. Hubbard gave lectures in South Africa and visited the Soweto township to see human rights violations for himself.

These efforts and a strong stance for human rights for all were followed by the establishment of numerous Churches and Missions of Scientology across the African continent to continue the work. This January the Church celebrated the grand opening of its magnificent new headquarters for Africa at the majestic 22-acre Castle Kyalami in Johannesburg. Rev. Stanard announced that Churches of Scientology all over the world will celebrate the Grand Opening in South Africa with their own special events throughout March.

“Siberia USA”

In the mid 1950’s a now little-known bill was defeated that would have granted $12.5 million to set up a “Siberia USA” in the vast and then largely unpopulated territory of Alaska. Citizens could be reported on by “an interested party” and then picked up for “mental illness” and shipped to Alaska and confined there indefinitely without recourse or trial. Although already passed through the House of Representatives unanimously, through fast action by Ron Hubbard to alert friends in the Senate to the human rights catastrophe that this bill would have been, as well as through advocacy against the bill by Scientologists around the United States and other groups, “Siberia USA” was ultimately defeated.

International Religious Freedom

Church leaders and Scientologists have greatly increased their outreach in the field of religious freedom and are working side by side with other faith groups on issues of severe religious persecution of Christians, Muslims, Jews, and religious minorities in China, Russia, Pakistan, Nigeria and other countries emphasizing Article 18 of the UDHR which promises religious freedom.

Worldwide Human Rights Education

Although when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the global standard of human rights for all its countries in December 1948, few of them – including the US – followed its exhortation “to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other education institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories.” In addition to championing religious freedom, the Church has sponsored the United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights campaigns to broadly promote all of the rights of the UDHR through the Internet and mailings of free educational booklets, videos and teacher’s guides.

Today, these grassroots campaigns have reached virtually every country on Earth. In just the last year over 100,000 people received free mailings of materials on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Since the Internet campaign was launched in 2007, there have been over 26 million visits to the HumanRights.com and YouthforHumanRights.org websites, which feature free downloads of the UDHR and educational videos and materials.

“When L. Ron Hubbard emphasized the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and broadly published it in the FREEDOM Magazine in 1969, he inspired a movement that today is one of the largest human rights education campaigns in the world,” said Beth Akiyama, Executive Director of the National Affairs Office and a board member of United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights from 2007 to 2012. “Every person no matter where they are in the world must know their rights. And we must call for sweeping reforms in human rights and truly, as Ron Hubbard said in 1969, make human rights a fact everywhere in the world.”

The Church of Scientology and Scientologists all over the world sponsor the United for Human Rights campaign’s purpose is to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights broadly known, which it does through global Internet and print distribution of the UDHR and informational videos, booklets and educator’s guides for free, as well as an annual World Educational Tour and an annual International Human Rights Summit.

Islam is perceived by the world as a religion of jihad, or terrorism while in reality the Quran. Islam preaches for peace and the dignity of women and men.

To Muslims reading this, I challenge you to learn more about the Quran and about your faith from the writings of your scholars, not solely from the imams at your mosques.”

— Don Juravin

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, USA, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Author: Don Karl Juravin from JURAVIN RESEARCH (Orlando, Florida)

Islam is perceived by the world as a religion of jihad, or terrorism while in reality the Quran, the basis for all Islam, preaches for peace and the dignity of women, as well as men. JURAVIN RESEARCH invested 4 months and we found the reason. Now, can a good Muslim read this research and know what to do?

Imams may be the reason as they are the interpreters of the Quran in the mosque. They represent God’s wishes to ordinary believers. The Imams are highly respected, as Christians respect the Pope. The imam Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa not only "misrepresented" the Quran for his followers but also supplied a terrorist with over $1,000 in weapons. There is an imam who is responsible for a terror attack or a group of young Muslims announcing jihad. In Britain, months before a terrorist attack, Imam Mustafa Graf was recorded preaching for jihad.

But Islam is not about war and violence. Islam is a religion of peace. The imams need to reform, and the people need to be more discerning about what they believe. Imams who are in the wrong should be challenged, not blindly obeyed.

>> IMAMS ARE HIGHLY RESPECTED <<

The culture of Islam has been built around respect for leadership and authority. Imams and everything they stand for are highly valued in Muslim society.
Islam relies on the interpreters of the Quran to maintain peace, stability, order, and in order to better seek the perfection of the religion. Islam translates to “submission to the will of God.” The ideal of Islam is a perfect world where God and man are in harmony with one another. Imams seek to bring the reality of that ideal to the material world.

“The people in charge can explain the facts of the matter and remove any confusion or doubts a person may have,” writes Farhat Hashmi. This does not only apply to matters of religion, but also politics and news. Imams are the leaders of the community, influencing multiple facets of Muslim life.

Shi’ites believe that Imams safeguard the will of God, allowing other Muslims to draw from God’s wisdom and guidance when necessary. The imams must live without sin or fault in order to fulfill their roles as leaders and religious influences.

Exemplary imams have been at the forefront of condemning terrorism and the corruption found within some elements of modern Islam. Over 1,800 Pakistani clerics condemned terrorism in a joint statement. After the London Bridge was attacked by terrorists, 500 imams refused to perform any sort of commemorative service for the dead criminals. A majority of imams are good people who strive to serve their communities in the best ways possible.

But some imams are influencing young Muslims and misguided Muslims to take a different direction. Their preachings are too radical and too far off from the original words of the Quran, yet no one challenges them on it.

>> POLITICAL INFLUENCE: IMAMS "ADJUSTING" ISLAM <<

In 1990, after Iraq invaded Kuwait, Muslim clerics rushed to re-define the Islamic traditions so that it appeared as if Muslim tradition did not condemn the waging of war on another Islamic country. In a legal report for the Library of Congress, researcher George Sadek asserted that militant groups not affiliated with a country, such as Al-Qaeda and Isis, have their own fundamentalist interpretations of international relations that stray from years of Islamic tradition in dealing with foreign countries.

The Quran rejects dictatorships. But often imams support the dictators in their own countries. Iran is a dictatorship, run by an imam. Supposedly in Iran the imam is above the law, so the dictatorship is a very technical legality.

Theoretically, jihad is supposed to be used to throw off dictatorships and false rulers who oppress the people. It is not supposed to be used to force Islam on other people.

>> IMAM OPPRESS WOMEN <<

Imams have often denied women the right to leave their husbands. Some of them still teach that Islam allows men to control their wives, even though there is no Quranic basis for this. Divorce laws among Muslims vary from community to community.

In France, a Salafi imam was exiled to Algeria by the government after preaching several disturbing principles. Among those teachings were ruling that called for the oppression of women. “Women could not leave their homes without authorization,” he said.

The Telegraph tells a story of imams in mosques teaching against women, particularly white women. Because these women are not Muslims, they must be punished, according to imams, for their loose behavior, by being exploited in some fashion. These imams are divisive and bring about more misogyny in Islam.

In Cardiff, U.K., an imam harassed several young girls and assaulted them if they failed to follow his instructions. He taught in that mosque for thirty years before he was arrested and jailed for his crimes. Women in Islam are supposed to be treated with respect, not as animals. The Quran teaches that women are not supposed to be objectified. It also teaches that men are not supposed to be promiscuous.

The Quran is actually very progressive in its teachings on women.

>> IMAMS: THE REAL EVIL <<

The real problem behind Islam is the manipulation of the sacred text of the Quran by the imams. In the Sunni version of Islam, imams are the leaders of sacred worship and the interpreters of the Quran.

Imams can be bearers of wisdom and, because of their positions in Muslim society, can impact their communities in a positive light. But some choose not to do so. Some imams in different countries teach children that martyrdom in Islam is more important than academic success. Often these imams are allowed to teach for several years, influencing young men to become terrorists and to radicalize others into forming terrorist groups.

An imam in the United States, Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, supplied a terrorist with over $1,000 in weapons. Bengharsa made videos for his YouTube page, which further encouraged and instructed young converts to prepare for jihad.

Islam is a uniquely law-based religion, that relies on an interpretation of the Quran into law in order to be fully realized. In the book, Imams and Emirs: State, Religion, and Sects in Islam, Fuad I. Kuri writes that “Salvation in Islam is sought by following God’s laws and decrees.”

These laws are achieved by an ulama or an agreement that relies on the general consensus of men. Imams are the ones that arrive at this consensus.

The Quran and the spirit of the Quran are not the ones that need to change. Rather, it seems that the attitude of the religious leaders in Islam should change. Even Muslim scholars admit that Islam is an idea that is constantly sought after. Therefore, it is not the ideal that should change, but rather the composite where the ideal seeks to adapt to reality.

>> IMAMS ABUSE THE TRUST OF THEIR FOLLOWERS <<

Wahhabism, a Muslim philosophy that many believe to be behind terrorist ideals, was initiated by a Muslim cleric, Muhammad bin Abd al Wahhab, and Muhammad bin Saud, founder of the first Saudi state, in the late eighteenth century. The philosophy seeks to strip Islam of it’s more conventional religious practices, such as the veneration of saints and the celebration of Muhammad's birthday.

It politicized and polarized Islam even more. Clerics that professed Wahhabism were incorporated in the Saudi government. This inspires warriors to seize different territories, wage war, and persecute other Islamic sects, such as the Shi’ites. None of these precepts are found in the Quran.

Salafiyya is another Muslim approach to the fulfillment of Islam. Al-Qaeda is heavily influenced by this approach, which advocates for firm adherence to the Quran and the hadith, or words of Mohammed not found in the Quran. The approach is not only religious but also politically motivated: Al Qaeda calls for the overthrowing of Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia.

>> POLITITIONS ARE USING THE IMAMS <<

The Saudi Arabian government does not distinguish a separation between religion and the state. The royal family of Saud elevated the ulama in Saudi Arabia to higher levels of power to help them maintain control in the 1980’s and 1990’s. With the rising of terrorism, the government demoted the importance of imams.

The Islamic state is a phenomenon common to the Middle East. The structure and hadiths of Islam are built into the law of a nation. Because the Caliph was the head of the communities of Islam, and the caliph was in charge of the administrative duties, and Islam law was applied in courts, the leader of the state was the leader of the religion as well.
The modern definition of the Islamic state did not come about until the 20th century.

In Turkey, imams are moving to regain the ability to be political. In 1965, Turkey banned imams from engaging in political activity. Imam politicians hope to gain more say in how the state handles Islam. Since Turkey is a unique system where the state controls Islam, imams are working to take back their power.

Imam Khomeini argued in an essay that Islam seeks to combine religious ethics and politics into one concept.

Iran has a supreme leader who is also an imam. He is above the law. However, this is outside the realm of the Quran. While defenders of this system say that the prophet Mohammed operated from this system, critics will say that no one else can claim that sort of divine leadership other than Mohammed.

In Nigeria, in the 2007 elections, imams encouraged their congregations to elect a specific politician during religious services on Fridays. One imam was assassinated after such a sermon. The 2007 elections were considered the most violent elections in Nigerian history.

>> MUSLIMS MUST DO MORE <<

Islam should be a religion where the imams can be questioned on teachings that do not sound right. Instead of avoid questioning the imams at all costs, Muslims must determine what they believe in and challenge the imams who teach otherwise. Fetullah Gulen, in an article written for Politico, stated that in order to solve the problem of terrorism in Muslim communities, proper education is key. He said, “The antidote is a religious education program that teaches the tradition in a holistic and contextualized way. To be able to resist the deceits of radical ideologues, young Muslims must understand the spirit of their scripture and the overarching principles of their Prophet’s life.”

To Muslims reading this, I challenge you to learn more about the Quran and about your faith from the writings of your scholars, not solely from the imams at your mosques. Don’t be afraid to question what you are told. It is not a sign of disrespect to analyze and research the things you hear.

>> How many Muslims are there? Where do they live? <<

There were 1.8 billion Muslims in the world as of 2015 – roughly 24% of the global population – according to a Pew Research Center estimate. But while Islam is currently the world’s second-largest religion (after Christianity), it is the fastest-growing major religion. Indeed, if current demographic trends continue, the number of Muslims is expected to exceed the number of Christians by the end of this century.

Although many countries in the Middle East-North Africa region, where the religion originated in the seventh century, are heavily Muslim, the region is home to only about 20% of the world’s Muslims. A majority of the Muslims globally (62%) live in the Asia-Pacific region, including large populations in Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran and Turkey.

Indonesia is currently the country with the world’s largest Muslim population, but Pew Research Center projects that India will have that distinction by the year 2050 (while remaining a majority-Hindu country), with more than 300 million Muslims.

The Muslim population in Europe also is growing; we project 10% of all Europeans will be Muslims by 2050.

>> Muslims In The United States? <<

According to our estimate, there are about 3.45 million Muslims of all ages in the U.S., or about 1.1% of the U.S. population. This is based on an analysis of census statistics and data from a 2017 survey of U.S. Muslims, which was conducted in English as well as Arabic, Farsi, and Urdu. Based on the same analysis, Pew Research Center also estimates that there are 2.15 million Muslim adults in the country and that a majority of them (58%) are immigrants.

Our demographic projections estimate that Muslims will make up 2.1% of the U.S. population by the year 2050, surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country (not including people who say they have no religion).

The Muslim share of immigrants granted permanent residency status (green cards) increased from about 5% in 1992 to roughly 10% in 2012, representing about 100,000 immigrants in that year.

>> Rapid Global Muslim Population Growth <<

There are two major factors behind the rapid projected growth of Islam, and both involve simple demographics. For one, Muslims have more children than members of other religious groups. Around the world, each Muslim woman has an average of 2.9 children, compared with 2.2 for all other groups combined.

Muslims are also the youngest (median age of 24 in 2015) of all major religious groups, seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims. As a result, a larger share of Muslims already are, or will soon be, at the point in their lives when they begin having children. This, combined with high fertility rates, will fuel Muslim population growth.

>> How Do Americans View Muslims or Islam? <<

A Pew Research Center survey conducted in 2017 asked Americans to rate members of nine religious groups on a “feeling thermometer” from 0 to 100, where 0 reflects the coldest, most negative possible rating and 100 the warmest, most positive rating. Overall, Americans gave Muslims an average rating of 48 degrees, similar to atheists (50).

Americans view more warmly the seven other religious groups mentioned in the survey (Jews, Catholics, mainline Protestants, evangelical Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and Mormons). But views toward Muslims (as well as several of the other groups) are now warmer than they were a few years ago; in 2014, U.S. adults gave Muslims an average rating of 40 degrees
