WASHINGTON - U.S. exports to Iran — including brassieres, bull semen, cosmetics and possibly even weapons — grew more than tenfold during President Bush's years in office even as he accused Iran of nuclear ambitions and helping terrorists. America sent more cigarettes to Iran , at least $158 million worth under Bush, than any other products.

I believe we need to keep things in perspective and avoid the temptations of the secular world. It is obvious that even when people view each other as antagonists they will still join together when it comes to filling material pleasures.

To me this is a strong indication of how powerful the temptations of shaitan are. We need to see that all of mankind has a common enemy and we are driven apart when our intents are good, but drawn together for material gain.


We need to keep our focus on Allaah(swt) and look carefully at the actions of our leaders and spokesmen. Above all we each must understand and accept we carry the burdan of accountability for our own actions and not allow anyone to speak for each of us as individuls.

I do favor legitimate trade with Iran and all countries, but trade should be in material that is of benefit to the people and not stuff that will weaken the eeman of the people.
