Muslim Media Corporation Executive Summary.   

The changing dynamics of local, regional, national and global politics has rebranded the way that different stakeholders are positioning themselves on the world stage. The uncertainty of the direction of world politics has created a lot of harsh political rhetoric that has activated a dangerous bubble that only knows how to mount the offensive on Islam as the cause of the panic, apprehension and social anxiety that global communities are facing today. Most of the harsh realities flowing from the political establishments around the world is feeding into the lunatic fringe that has gone on a media rampage to unfortunately paint Islam as a misogynist and homophobic terrorist group that is a threat to the world.

The Muslim Media Corporation exists to inform, educate and appeal to other media houses and corporations in America and around the world about restoring the image of Islam and its overwhelming peaceful majority followers.  Yes, the Muslim Community has no strategy that intentionally talks about the great values that make Islam a religion of peace. There is no need to rebrand Islam, its scared values are immutable as evidenced by the scared and ancient traditions of peace and unity from which it derives its teachings. MMC will therefore engage, document and collaborate on the issues that are aimed at restoring the image of Islam that has been swallowed by the forces of islamophobia, hate and other prejudicial nuances against Islam.

In addition to engaging corporate America, the international community and the world at large about peace and unity, MMC has initiated an educational pilot program that is aimed at integrating peace, unity, democracy and diversity into the popular STEM programs taught in schools. This proposed international discourse has generated unprecedented levels of stakeholder participation from the OIC, United Nations diplomats, the New York City Department of Education, NGOs and other people of goodwill that can’t wait to see how the integration of peace and unity components into the science and mathematics areas of education will look like in countering extreme poverty and religious violent extremism in the Muslim World.

The goal of MMC is to be a clearing house for the fair and accurate news that is attributable to the Muslim world. Further, MMC exists to be a partner, and conduit through which the great works of peace and unity will reach the global community and build coalitions around how to translate Muslim contributions into the educational program areas that add value to the academic, media, cultural, economic and political mainstream.

In the name Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

As-salaamu Alaikum, Greetings!

Dear Fellow Human Family:

By the grace of our Creator, it is with great humility and honor that I, Sheikh Musa Drammeh, founder of Muslim Media Corporation, am hereby commending your attention to the root causes of religious extremism, domestic and transnational terrorism, organized crime, human trafficking, poverty, refugees and economic migration from the Muslim world.

Please allow me to introduce to you our initiative for permanent solution to the aforementioned challenges, STEMDUP. ‘science, technology, engineering, mathematics, democracy, unity, and peace curriculum’ in all grade schools throughout the Muslim World is the permanent solution to these increasing global challenges emanating from Muslim Nations. Muslim nations have to be producing consumers and not continue to be merely importing consumers. STEMDUP creates proprietary, organic, and sustainable socioeconomic development from a diverse professional labor force. In addition to its national religious and ethnic harmony and patriotic unity.

As a co-founder of the Islamic Leadership School, K-12, in New York City and using the privilege vested in me by our Creator (as an ordinary citizen of the world, a member of our human family, and a striving servant of Allah [SW]), I hereby crave your indulgence in joining us to engage our governments into implementing STEMDUP Curriculum and STEMDUP Standards in order to elevate and improve the socioeconomic status of the next generations of youth-majority populations of the Muslim World.

While we acknowledge the existence of the STEM program in both the US and Canada, it lacks the unity, peace and governance rubric and that is why we have hosted a historic press conference in order to create the nexus between STEM, Democracy and Peace, on Tuesday, December 26, 2017 in the hours of 1 O’clock and 2 O’clock Eastern Standard Time on the steps of City Hall, New York City, to set the tone for the need for the uniquely tailored STEM program that speaks to the values of the Muslim World.

We have reached out to OIC through email messages, as a matter of urgency, to have its members adopt ‘STEMDUP ERA’ as their primary focal point for this century of 2018-2118. We acknowledge and realize the indispensability of your nation’s leadership to this mammoth initiative and we remain confident that you are going to engage into this conversation and strengthen the tone.

It is envisioned that the declaration of STEMDUP ERA and its related planned campaign throughout the Muslim World shall phase out the regressive focus on the century old ‘Balfour Declaration’ in the expense of STEMDUP in the Muslim world, without the need to eliminate our obligation to peacefully resolve the critical issues concerning the Holy Land and other issues affecting sustained developments in Muslim Nations. It is our position that STEMDUP Curriculum is the panacea for religious extremism, poverty, human trafficking and violence in the Muslim World and an antidote to radicalization, refugees, and economic migrants in the West.

Against this backdrop we encourage Western donors, philanthropists, academia and charities to collaborate with Muslim Nations, philanthropists, charities, and Muslim Media Corporation in establishing STEMDUP Foundation through United Nations, OIC, or other appropriate bodies to oversee the building of STEMDUP schools throughout the Muslim World, especially in areas where there are few or no schools presently.

The reality is that Al-arḍul-Muqaddasah (the Holy Land) conflict has never been the Muslim world’s main problem, but rather a unifying excuse to cover the failure of implementing STEMDUP Curriculum by our educational systems which failed us in leading in scientific and technical innovations. Unfortunately to this date, there are places in the Muslim World where formal education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics aren’t given top priority, if they do teach them at all.

STEMDUP ERA, which garnered an overwhelming endorsements and support from religious, political, academic, business, and community leaders, and people of goodwill, shall insha Allah bring innovativeness and socioeconomic progress that is informed by the intentional rubric of peace and other values that affirm the Islamic faith among OIC members – a dawn of new era of transformation from stagnant to progress.

Thanking you in advance for the attention to the matter.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Hizbus Salam (The Party of Peace)

“Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.” 3:104.

New York City, New York – The Muslims, Conservatives, Liberals and our governments are all wrong in the way they deal with the omnipresence of global violence extremism.

The scourge of suicide missions from Muslims will be eradicated once and for all by Muslims, intellectually and peacefully. We will disprove its justification, eliminate its reasoning, and reinforce the superiority of knowledge to self-destructive violence as remedy.

We will change the conditioned victimhood mentality in the Muslim World, formalize religious school curricula with Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics. Democracy. Unity. Peace. (STEMDUP), invest in innovation, and elevate gender equitability in the Muslim World.

We will make STEMDUP top priority for all Muslim Nations. We will bring innovative Islam back and eradicate self-destructive inspirational one. We will reconcile the intersection of intellect and inspiration in the Muslim World. In sha Allah, we will!

It’s time for real Muslim leadership (Hizbus Salam) to be in the driver’s seat in the fight against religious extremism and the countering of this irreligious demon.

As concerns of terroristic acts in our city are dormant in our minds for the last seventeen years, some Muslim New Yorkers have decided to take a more proactive role in helping to eliminate this continued threat once and for all, despite lack of unanimity to its best practice. How many times can we be lucky? How long before these criminals succeed again in the worst possible way?

Furthermore, the ongoing operations to contain this relatively new association of Islam with transnational violent religious extremism are unsustainable militarily and financially. A permanent solution to Muslim Extremism can only come from the Muslim scholars working with their governments systematically.

The fact is the eradication of religious extremism is a duty of religious scholars and their leadership not military and law enforcement. Our best intelligence communities in democratic nations such as U.S. can’t stop radicalized persons who blame the Muslim world’s regressive conditions on the West, hate their lives and celebrate death through suicide missions.

Finally, Muslim leaders’ usual post terrorism condemnations are nonsense. The neoconservatives’ indiscriminate attachment of terrorism to Islam is a total fabrication. The liberals’ blanket defense of Muslims is naïve at best, while our governments’ violent doctrine to countering extremism are counterintuitive and decentralization of more violent extremism. It’s time to modify our modus operandi. It is a high time to adopt and implement STEMDUP Curriculum in every school in the Muslim World.



In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful




Read! In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created- Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: Proclaim! And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,- He Who taught (the use of) the pen,-Taught man that which he knew not. 96:1-5

Say: “Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition. 39:9



Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity. 3:104

Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein: And whoever recommends and helps an evil cause, shares in its burden: And Allah hath power over all things.4:85

He granteth wisdom to whom He pleaseth; and he to whom wisdom is granted receiveth indeed a benefit overflowing; but none will grasp the Message but men of understanding. 2:269


Human Unity:

O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). 49:13

If it had been thy Lord’s will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe! No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand. 10:99-100


Interfaith Unity:

Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. 2:62


Muslim Unity:

The Believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that ye may receive Mercy. 49:10

As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, thou hast no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did. 6:159


Middle East Unity:

And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided. 3:103


Interfaith Diversity:

To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute; 5:48



Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. 2:256

O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do. 4:135

O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.4:59



And the servants of (Allah) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, “Peace!”; 25:63

And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: “To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.” It is true thou wilt not be able to guide every one, whom thou lovest; but Allah guides those whom He will and He knows best those who receive guidance. 28:55-56

Because of higher priority given to overall education, Jews are more accomplished than their Muslim Brethren?

Dr Farrukh Saleem

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas, five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew. Sigmund Freud — id, ego, superego — the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease). Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.

Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission. Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of the endocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism). Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders, depression and phobias). Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their development). Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).

Why are Jews so powerful? Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor. Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, Stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman, Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper Weinberger (American secretary of defence), Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal (Singapore’s first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater, Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald (editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyyeld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

Can you name the most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world? The name is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world. Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish? As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith did he belong to?

So, why are Jews so accompalished?

Answer: Education.
