  1. The crimes of Winston Churchill crimesofbritain England celebrates their genocides. The ‘Winston Churchill note’ has entered circulation. Honouring a man who swilled on champagne while 4 million men, women and children in Bengal starved due to his racist colonial policies. The trial of Churchill: Churchill was a genocidal maniac. He is fawned over in Britain and held up as a hero of the nation. He was voted ‘Greatest Briton’ of all time. Below is the real history of Churchill, the history of a white supremacist whose hatred for Indians led to four million starving to death, the man who loathed Irish people so much he conceived different ways to terrorise them, the racist thug who waged war on black people across Africa and in Britain. This is the trial of Winston Churchill, the enemy of all humanity. THE TRIAL OF WINSTON CHURCHILL: Afghanistan: Churchill found his love for war during the time he spent in Afghanistan. While there he said “all who resist will be killed without quarter” because the Pashtuns need “recognise the superiority of race”. He believed the Pashtuns needed to be dealt with, he would reminisce in his writings about how he partook in the burning villages and peoples homes: Churchill would also write of how “every tribesman caught was speared or cut down at once”. Proud of the terror he helped inflict on the people of Afghanistan Churchill was well on the road to becoming a genocidal maniac. Greece: The British Army under the guidance of Churchill perpetrated a massacre on the streets of Athens in the month of December 1944. 28 protesters were shot dead, a further 128 injured. The British demanded that all guerrilla groups should disarm on the 2nd December 1944. The following day 200,000 people took to the streets, and this is when the British Army under Churchill’s orders turned their guns on the people. Churchill regarded ELAS (Greek People’s Liberation Army) and EAM (National Liberation Front) as “miserable banditti”, these were the very people who ran the Nazis out. His actions in the month of December were purely out of his hatred and paranoia for communism. The British backed the right-wing government in Greece returned from exile after the very same partisans of the resistance that Churchill ordered the murder of had driven out the Nazi occupiers. Soviet forces were well received in Greece, this deeply worried Churchill. He planned to restore the monarchy in Greece to combat any possible communist influence. The events in December were part of that strategy. In 1945, Churchill sent Charles Wickham to Athens where he was in charge of training the Greek security police. Wickham learned his tricks of the trade in British occupied Ireland between 1922-1945 where he was a commander of the colonial RUC, responsible for countless terror. In April 1945 Churchill said “the [Nazi] collaborators in Greece in many cases did the best they could to shelter the Greek population from German oppression” and went on to say “the Communists are the main foe”. India: Very few in Britain know about the genocide in Bengal let alone how Churchill engineered it. Churchill’s hatred for Indians led to four million starving to death during the Bengal ‘famine’ of 1943. “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion” he would say. Bengal had a better than normal harvest during the British enforced famine. The British Army took millions of tons of rice from starving people to ship to the Middle East – where it wasn’t even needed. When the starving people of Bengal asked for food, Churchill said the ‘famine’ was their own fault “for breeding like rabbits”. The Viceroy of India said “Churchill’s attitude towards India and the famine is negligent, hostile and contemptuous”. Even right wing imperialist Leo Amery who was the British Secretary of State in India said he “didn’t see much difference between his [Churchill] outlook and Hitler’s”. Churchill refused all of the offers to send aid to Bengal, Canada offered 10,000 tons of rice, the U.S 100,000, he just point blank refused to allow it. Churchill was still swilling champaign while he caused four million men, women and children to starve to death in Bengal. Throughout WW2 India was forced to ‘lend’ Britain money. Churchill moaned about “Indian money lenders” the whole time. The truth is Churchill never waged war against fascism. He went to war with Germany to defend the British Empire, he said this about India during WW2 “are we to incur hundreds of millions of debt for defending India only to be kicked out by the Indians afterwards”. In 1945 Churchill said “the Hindus were race protected by their mere pullulation from the doom that is due”. The Bengal famine wasn’t enough for Churchill’s blood lust, he wished his favourite war criminal Arthur Harris could have bombed them. Iran: When Britain seized Iran’s oil industry Churchill proclaimed it was “a prize from fairyland beyond our wildest dreams”. Churchill meddled in Iranian affairs for decades, he helped exclude Iranians from their natural resources and encouraged the looting when most lived in severe poverty. In June 1914 Churchill proposed a bill in the House of Commons that would see the British government become become the major shareholder of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. The company would go on to refrain from paying Iran its share of the dividends before paying tax to the British exchequer. Essentially the British were illegally taxing the Iranian government. When the nationalist government of Mohammad Mosaddegh threatened British ‘interests’ in Iran, Churchill was there, ready to protect them at any cost. Even if that meant desecrating democracy. He helped organise a coup against Mosaddegh in August 1953. He told the CIA operations officer that helped carry out the plan “if i had been but a few years younger, I would have loved nothing better than to have served under your command in this great venture”. Churchill arranged for the BBC to send coded messages to let the Shah of Iran know that they were overthrowing the democratically elected government. Instead of the BBC ending their Persian language news broadcast with “it is now midnight in London” they under Churchill’s orders said “it is now exactly midnight”. Churchill went on to privately describe the coup as “the finest operation since the end of the war [WW2]”. Being a proud product of imperialism he had no issue ousting Mosaddegh so Britain could get back to sapping the riches of Iran. Iraq: Churchill was appointed ‘Secretary of State for the Colonies’ in 1921 and he formed the ‘Middle East Department’ which was responsible for Iraq. Determined to have his beloved empire on the cheap he decided air power could replace ground troops. A strategy of bombing any resistance to British rule was now employed. Several times in the 1920s various groups in the region now known as Iraq rose up against the British. The air force was then put into action, indiscriminately bombing civilian areas so to subdue the population. Churchill was also an advocate for the use of mustard and poison gases. Whilst ‘Secretary for War and Air’ he advised that “the provision of some kind of asphyxiating bombs” should be used “for use in preliminary operations against turbulent tribes” in order to take control of Iraq. When Iraqi tribes stood up for themselves, under the direction of Churchill the British unleashed terror on mud, stone and reed villages. Churchill’s bombing of civilians in ‘Mesopotamia’ (Kurdistan and Iraq) was summed up by war criminal ‘Bomber Harris’: Ireland: In 1904 Churchill said “I remain of the opinion that a separate parliament for Ireland would be dangerous and impractical”. Churchill’s ancestry is linked to loyalism to Britain, he is a direct descendent of the ‘Marquis of Londonderry’ who helped put down the 1798 United Irishmen rising. He would live up to his families reputation when it came to suppressing revolutionary forces in Ireland. The Black and Tans were the brainchild of Churchill, he sent the thugs to Ireland to terrorise at will. Attacking civilians and civilian property they done Churchill proud, rampaging across the country carrying out reprisals. He went on to describe them as “gallant and honourable officers”. It was also Churchill who conceived the idea of forming the Auxiliaries who carried out the Croke Park massacre, firing into the crowd at a Gaelic football match, killing 14. Of course this didn’t fulfill Churchill’s bloodlust to repress as people who he described as “odd” for their refusal “to be English”, he went on to advocate the use of air power in Ireland against Sinn Fein members in 1920. He suggested to his war advisers that aeroplanes should be dispatched with orders to use “machine-gun fire or bombs” to “scatter and stampede them”. Churchill was an early advocate for the partitioning of Ireland. During the treaty negotiations he insisted on retaining navy bases in Ireland. In 1938 those bases were handed back to Ireland. However in 1939 Churchill proposed capturing Berehaven base by force. In 1941 Churchill supported a plan to introduce conscription in the North of Ireland. Churchill went on to remark”the bloody Irish, what have they ever done for our wars”, reducing Ireland’s merit to what it might provide by way of resources (people) for their imperialist land grabs. Kenya: Britain declared a state of emergency in Kenya in 1952 to protect its system of institutionalised racism that they established throughout their colonies so to exploit the indigenous population. Churchill being your archetypical British supremacist believed that Kenya’s fertile highlands should be only for white colonial settlers. He approved the forcible removal of the local population, which he termed “blackamoors”. 150,000 men, women and children were forced into concentration camps. Children’s schools were shut by the British who branded them “training grounds for rebellion”. Rape, castration, cigarettes, electric shocks and fire all used by the British to torture the Kenyan people under Churchill’s watch. In 1954 in a British cabinet meeting Churchill and his men discussed the forced labour of Kenyan POWs and how to circumvent the constraints of two treaties they were breaching: The Cowan Plan advocated the use of force and sometimes death against Kenyan POWs who refused to work. Churchill schemed to allow this to continue. Caroline Elkins book gives a glimpse into the extent that the crimes in Kenya were known in both official and unofficial circles in Britain and how Churchill brushed off the terror the colonial British forces inflicted on the native population. He even ‘punished’ Edwina Mountbatten for mentioning it, “Edwina Mountbatten was conversing about the emergency with India’s prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and the then colonial secretary, Oliver Lyttleton. When Lyttleton commented on the “terrible savagery” of Mau Mau… Churchill retaliated, refusing to allow Lord Mountbatten to take his wife with him on an official visit to Turkey”. Palestine: In 2012 Churchill was honoured with a statue in Jerusalem for his assistance to Zionism. He regarded the Arab population Palestine to be a “lower manifestation”. And that the “dog in a manger has the final right to the manger”, by this he meant the Arabs of Palestine. In 1920 Churchill declared “if, as may well happen, there should be created in our own lifetime by the banks of the Jordan a Jewish State under the protection of the British Crown which might comprise three or four millions of Jews, an event will have occurred in the history of the world which would from every point of view be beneficial”. A year later in Jerusalem he told Palestinian leaders that “it is manifestly right that the Jews, who are scattered all over the world, should have a national centre and a National Home where some of them may be reunited. And where else could that be but in this land of Palestine, with which for more than 3,000 years they have been intimately and profoundly associated?”. At the Palestine Royal Commission (Peel) of 1937, Churchill stated that he believed in intention of the Balfour Declaration was to make Palestine an “overwhelmingly Jewish state”. He went on to also express to the Peel Commission that he does “not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place”. Four years later he wrote of his desire for a ‘Jewish state’to be established after the second war world. The establishment of the colonial settler state however was done on the watch of the British Labour Party under Attlee, who were always there to back their Tory counterparts when it came to British foreign policy. Saudi Arabia: Prior to 1922 the British were paying Ibn Saud a subsidy of £60,000 a year. Churchill, then Colonial Secretary, raised it to £100,000. He knew of the dangers of wahhabism, but was content to use the House of Saud’s twisted ideology for benefit of British imperialism. Just as the British had done a few years earlier when they teamed up with Al-Saud and their wahhabism to wage an internal war in the Ottoman Empire. He described Ibn Saud’s wahhabis as “intolerant, well-armed and bloodthirsty’. Of course, as long as they were on the side of the British, Winston was happy. Churchill went on to write that his “admiration for him [Ibn Saud] was deep, because of his unfailing loyalty to us”. Churchill meeting with Ibn Saud whom he showered with money and gifts. Britain foisted Wahhabism on the region. He gifted Ibn Saud a special Rolls-Royce in the mid 1940s. South Africa: Thousands were sent to British run concentration camps during the Boer wars. Churchill summed up his time in South Africa by saying “it was great fun galloping about”. Churchill wrote that his only “irritation” during the Boer war was “that Kaffirs should be allowed to fire on white men”. It was Churchill who planted the seed to strip voting rights from black people in South Africa. In June 1906, Churchill argued that Afrikaners should be allowed a self-rule which would mean black people would be excluded from voting. He went on to state to Parliament that “we must be bound by the interpretation which the other party places on it and it is undoubted that the Boers would regard it as a breach of that treaty if the franchise were in the first instance extended to any persons who are not white”. Other mentions: ‘British Guiana’: Churchill ordered the overthrowing of the democratically elected leader of ‘British Guiana’. He dispatched troops and warships and suspended their constitution all to put a stop to the governments nationalisation plan. China: “I think we shall have to take the Chinese in hand and regulate them” – Churchill His hope from this was for “Ayran stock to triumph”… Erich von Manstien: Churchill donated funds for this Nazi war criminals defence when he was on trial after WW2. Immigration to Britain: Churchill suggested the motto “Keep England White” when debating the adoption of new laws limiting immigration from the Caribbean. Mussolini: Churchill extolled Mussolini – “If I were Italian, I am sure I would have been with you entirely from the beginning” and “what a man [Mussolini] ! I have lost my heart!… Fascism has rendered a service to the entire world”. On his own people: Churchill suggested “100,000 degenerate Britons should be forcibly sterilised/others put in labour camps to halt decline of British race”. He also went on to suggest that “for tramps and wastrels there ought to be proper labour colonies where they could be sent”. Sudan: Churchill bragged that he personally shot at least three “savages” whilst there. Robert Emmet (Irish Republican leader): Churchill plagiarised his famous “we shall fight on the beaches” from Emmet’s speech from the dock. Russia: He urged the US to “wipe” out the Kremlin with an atomic bomb hoping it would “handle the balance of Russia”. World War 1: “I love this war. I know it’s smashing and shattering the lives of thousands every moment”. World War 2: Churchill’s cabinet during WW2 obsessed about British people viewing black GIs favourably.
  2. As-Salam-u-Alaikum everyone, I am currently a Masters by Research student studying the relationship between Sunni and Shia groups in Britain, my research is completely unbiased with no political or religious agenda whatsoever. I myself come from a mixed religious and cultural background and contradicting opinions on religion have been part of my upbringing, as such I very much appreciate a healthy debate. I have focussed on the relationship between Salafi and Shia groups in Britain and how that relationship has potentially evolved since the initial emergence of Salafism in Britain in the 1980s. I wanted to ask the people on this forum for their potential insight into these groups? Particularly what you think may be the biggest influencing factor: whether that might be essential theological differences, international or British politics or societal factors? Again, I would really appreciate any feedback you may have and thank you all in advance. If you would prefer to contact me directly my email address is misha.monaghan.2016@live.rhul.ac.uk Jazakumullahu Khair
  3. Britain has left the EU, David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister and the value of the Pound has dropped as well as the SNP, NASDAQ, and DOW stock markets. From what I have heard of the Vote mainly Conservative, White, Middle class, Older Voters were in favor of leaving. @zainabamy @sharinganMahdi
  4. British Government threatened with legal action to stop it exporting weapons to the Saudi Arabian regime Saudi Arabia has been accused of war crimes in its war in Yemen and ministers admit its army is using British weapons there The British Government could be taken to court in order to halt arms exports from British companies to the Saudi Arabian regime, campaigners and lawyers have said. Law firm Leigh Day, which is representing Campaign Against the Arms Trade, is considering legal action against ministers to force the suspension of weapons exports to the Middle Eastern autocracy. The United Nations said Saudi Arabia is breaching international law in its on-going war in Yemen and lawyers contend that it is unlawful for Britain to continue weapons export to the country if they are being used for atrocities. Leigh Day wrote to the Business Secretary Sajid Javis on 12 November to raise the issue but campaigners say the department could be breaking its own rules. The Government says it is complying with its international obligations. Rosa Curling, a human rights lawyer at the firm, said the Government was acting unlawfully if its weapons were being used to breach international law. “If there is a risk that arms from the UK could be used to commit serious breaches of international humanitarian law, and human rights law, then export licenses for these materials must be suspended immediately,” she said. “If this is not done, we believe the Government’s current decision to keep supplying Saudi Arabia is unlawful.” The Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond confirmed last month that British-manufactured weapons are being used by Saudi forces. Most weapons in the UK are produced by private companies but the Government gives consent and licences all exports and has complete control over which countries can buy from British producers. Those used in Saudi are thought to include flagship Eurofighter Typoon aircraft and Paveway guided missiles. In August the UN Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said Saudi Arabian attacks on civilian areas had clearly broken international law. “These attacks are in clear contravention of international humanitarian law and are unacceptable," UN under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs Stephen O'Brien O'Brien told the UN Security Council. “I am extremely concerned that the damage to the port of Hodeida could have a severe impact on the entire country, and would deepen humanitarian needs, making more people food insecure, leaving them without access to water or medicines, which could also mean the spread of disease." The charity Médecins Sans Frontières said the bombing of a hospital was a “war crime” as “a matter of fact”. Andrew Smith of Campaign Against Arms Trade said: “UK fighter jets and UK bombs have been central to the humanitarian catastrophe being unleashed on the people of Yemen. Thousands have died and essential infrastructure, including hospitals, has been destroyed. “The UK has continued to support air strikes and provide arms, despite strong evidence that war crimes are being committed. The Saudi regime has an appalling human rights record at home and abroad and these arms sales should never have been approved in the first place.” Saudi Arabia denies it has broken international law. It said the bombing of the MSF hospital was a mistake. Saudi Arabia is intervening in the Yemeni civil war on the side of the internationally-recognised Government. It says Shia Houthi groups who have taken control of most of the country are not the country's legitimate government. Apparent breaches of international law by foreign militaries using UK-produced weapons have been taken into account by UK courts before. In 2010 anti-arms trade activists who forcefully entered and broke machinery at a factory owned by an arms company near Brighton were acquitted of conspiring to cause criminal damage after a court found they had a lawful excuse for their activity. The damage to that factory was inflicted during the Israel 2009 invasion of Gaza; the activists argued parts from the factory were being used in Israeli fighter jets that were causing indiscriminate damage to civilian areas of Gaza. A Government spokesperson told the Independent: “The UK is satisfied that we are not in breach of our international obligations. We operate one of the most rigorous and transparent arms export control regimes in the world with each licence application assessed on a case by case basis, taking account of all relevant information, to ensure compliance with our legal obligations. No licence is issued if it does not meet these requirements. “We regularly raise with Saudi Arabian-led coalition and the Houthis, the need to comply with international humanitarian law (IHL) in Yemen. We monitor the situation carefully and have offered the Saudi authorities advice and training in this area." http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/british-government-threatened-with-legal-challenge-to-stop-it-exporting-weapons-to-the-saudi-arabian-a6776601.html I read a funny comment about this story: " Maybe the UK fell over and accidentally sold them the weapons? "

  6. Muslims ‘are Britain’s top charity givers’ Muslims are among Britain’s most generous givers, topping a poll of religious groups that donate to charity, according to new research. Muslims who donated to charity last year gave an average of almost £371 each, with Jewish givers averaging just over £270 per person. Nearly one in ten of Jewish givers donated more than £1,000. Among Muslim givers, most donated between £300 and £500 Atheists, by contrast, donated an average of £116 when they gave to charity http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/faith/article3820522.ece
  7. Half of Britain’s mosques have been attacked since 9/11There remains ‘a lack of political will’ to tackle Islamophobia, warns Government adviser Around half of mosques and Muslim centres in Britain have been subjected to Islamophobic attacks since 9/11, academics have warned as the far-right English Defence League prepares to march to the south-London scene of Drummer Lee Rigby’s murder. The figures are highlighted in a report which also found that the number of anti-Islamic attacks increased by as much as tenfold in the days following the Woolwich attack. Meanwhile, research by The Independent shows Islamophobic attacks spreading across Britain, with mosques being set alight and Muslims targeted at home in the past month. Despite the warning signs, a senior Government adviser told The Independent that there remains a “lack of political will” to take on the rise of Islamophobic attacks in Britain. The adviser, who did not want to be named, said that attempts to “tackle this issue – even before Woolwich – struggled to attract buy-in,” with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, identified as the primary source of frustration. The Muslim community was warned yesterday of the dangers it faces from hate groups in a sermon delivered at 500 mosques. The piece said that high-profile cases of sexual grooming of children by small groups of Muslim men “hitting the headlines in a short space of time and the fallout from the Woolwich case will create a major challenge for the Muslim community”. The trial date for the two men accused of murdering Drummer Rigby, Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, will begin on 18 November, it was announced yesterday. Professor Nigel Copsey, of Teesside University, the author of the new report which showed that between 40 and 60 per cent of mosques and other Islamic centres (around 700) had been targeted since 9/11 – said: “There has undoubtedly been a spike in anti-Muslim incidents since the Woolwich murder. An obvious concern now is whether the number of hate crime incidents return to ‘normal’ levels or whether Woolwich has been a game-changer in terms of increasing the underlying incidence of anti-Muslim hate over the longer term.” His report is based largely on figures from the Islamophobia watchdog Tell Mama. It shows an increase of attacks to nearly nine per day in the immediate aftermath of the Woolwich killing, but settling back to around two per day over in the following weeks. Prof- essor Copsey added: “What is significant about our analysis is the extent to which the far right is implicated in anti-Muslim hate crime.” Just this week, swastikas and the letters “EDL”, “KKK” and “NF” were sprayed on the walls of a mosque in Redditch. There were also reports of pigs’ heads being left at Muslim families’ homes and other attacks against individuals. There was also a attack on an Islamic centre in north London. But Dr Matthew Goodwin, associate fellow at Chatham House and an expert on extremist groups, said that “the broader picture is more positive than we think. Young people are more at ease accepting Muslims in society.” A spokesman for the Department for Communities and Local Government said: “There is no place for anti-Muslim hatred or any kind of hatred in Britain, and we are committed to tackling this unacceptable scourge.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/half-of-britains-mosques-have-been-attacked-since-911-8679304.html
  8. This was probably the last thing the Britz intel agents would wanted to hear from Argentina. She exposes the real criminals in a very deep and bold statement. :-D 'Opponents of Iran-Argentina ties will conduct 3rd AMIA attack' Argentinean President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner says any third attack on the Jewish community center, AMIA, will be carried out by opponents of the recent Tehran-Buenos Aires agreement to investigate the 1994 bombing on the center. Kirchner made the remark in reaction to AMIA President Guillermo Borger who claimed the Iran-Argentina memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in January “will allow a third bombing in Argentina.” “I read with concern Borger’s remarks. I respect Mr. Borger, but what makes him speak about such a horrible incident?” she asked. “In that case, if any suicide attack occurs due to the MoU [signed] with Iran, who will be its spiritual and material mastermind?” asked the Argentinean president. “Obviously, the signatories [to the MoU] will not mastermind any attack. Hence, will the masterminds be those who oppose the MoU? Or a country, intelligence agents and organizations of certain states? In that case, who would be committing such a strike and what would he be driving at?” she noted. On January 27, Iran’s Foreign Minister and his Argentinean counterpart Hector Timerman signed an MoU for the two countries to shed light on the 1994 bombing on the AMIA building in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. The Israeli regime reacted angrily to the deal a day after it was signed. “We are stunned by this news item and we will want to receive from the Argentine government a complete picture as to what was agreed upon because this entire affair affects Israel directly,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Yigal Palmor, said on January 28. In a statement on January 30, however, the Argentinean Foreign Ministry said Israel’s demand for explanation over the agreement, described by Argentinean President Fernandez as “historic,” was an “improper action that is strongly rejected.” Under intense political pressure imposed by the US and Israel, Argentina had formally accused Iran of having carried out the bomb attack. The Islamic Republic has categorically denied any involvement in the terrorist bombing. PressTv
  9. Note: The Salafi Kufr school, Darul-Shaitan is built in a province whose 95% or more is Shia... The school is funded by Zionists lapdogs, the Saudis. In recent years they encouraged the Salafis to turn the Takfiri school into a military base so they can use it against Shias or use it if anything happens between Saudi and North Yemen. The main slogans of Darul Haidth school in Dammaj is that Shias are heretics and should be killed. ------------------------------ Two men from a mosque in West London have been killed fighting alongside Islamic fundamentalists in Yemen, it can be disclosed. The two men, one a former accountancy student, had travelled to a religious school to study Islam but took up arms in Yemen’s increasingly bloody civil war, their friends and relatives told the Daily Telegraph. They were killed fighting rival shia Muslims in the mountains around the small town of Dammaj in Northern Yemen, according to one report. The father of one of the men said he considered his son to be “shaheed” [a martyr] and his whole family had been inspired to adopt fundamentalist Islam. Both men attended a small mosque in Cranford, West London, under the flight path into Heathrow. An imam at the mosque said they did not agree with suicide bombing or terrorism but they would not discourage members of the congregation from traveling to Dammaj, which is considered a seat of learning for fundamentalist “salafi” Islam. Adil Malik, 24, from Hounslow, and his friend, Hisham, had been living in Dammaj for several years, studying with Sheikh Yahya al- Hajooree, who runs a madrassa called Dar ul-Haadith. The seminary is said to have several thousand students from all over the world, including dozens from Britain but has come under regular attack from shia Houthi tribesmen. The sheikh made a call to arms in a video posted online two months before Mailk died, declaring: “Whoever is killed defending his faith has died a martyr.” In a posting on a salafi website, a man calling himself Ibn Salaf wrote of an attack by “our noble mujahideen” [holy fighters] on the Houthis in the mountains around the town which led to an artillery response which killed 22 fighters from Dammaj. “From these brothers was our honourable brother Aadil al-Pakistani, one who was always known for having lofty manners and zeal to seek knowledge of the religion and likewise our brother Hishaam who had been studying at Dammaj for five years and benefited a great deal.” He added: “For those of you who did not know them, they were both brothers from Cranford Masjid [mosque] and very well known amongst the salafi brothers for their goodness.” Malik’s father, who moved to Britain from Pakistan 40 years ago, said Dammaj had been under siege by the Houthis for a month at the time his son died in December last year. “He didn’t go there to fight but if someone comes and attacks you, you have to defend yourself,” he said. Malik’s father said his son was “shaheed” and added: “His time was written, it is going to come for you, it is written for everyone.” He reserved his wrath for the Houthi fighters, adding: “The Lord will punish them, they will pay, they will burn in hell, that is my prayer. They have taken innocent people’s lives.” Hisham was originally from Saudi Arabia but has lived in India and in London, according to Malik’s father. Malik was born in Britain and attended Northolt High School and turned to religion while studying accountancy at Brunel University in West London. The school did not respond to requests for comment. Mohammed Nurudeen Hamani, an imam at Cranford Mosque originally from Ghana, said a number of young men from the mosque had travelled to Dammaj, including one who had recently returned. “We believe that one day or another, you will die and your next life will be different and you have to be willing to accept that.” Telegraph
  10. The brave president of Argentina walked out of the summit over Falkland Islands... Some Muslim leaders should learn from her how to defend their countries and stand for their rights! Most likely there will be no more Americans summit in years to come. Latin American nations say there may not be another summit unless the US overcomes its objections to Cuba [AFP] Argentina storms out of Americas summit President Cristina Kirchner and Bolivia's Evo Morales walk out with summit already marred by US scandal and Cuba issue. Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner has stormed out of the Summit of the Americas in protest against a perceived lack of regional support for her country's claims in the dispute with the UK over the Falkland Islands. The summit in Colombia had already been marred by a lack of consensus among attendees, with Latin America countries opposing the decades-old US isolation of communist Cuba. Several countries put pressure on Barack Obama to end the ban, as the US president continued to be plagued by a US secret service scandal involving prostitutes. Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman, reporting from Cartagena, said the summit was at risk of "falling apart" after Kirchner's exit. "I suppose the collapse shouldn't be too surprising. There was complete disagreement about signing a final statement but the nail in the coffin came when Cristina Kirchner stormed out of the summit followed by Bolivia's Evo Morales. "[Kirchner] was furious, we are told, because of the lack of full, complete support for Argentina's claim of control of the Falkand Islands," Newman said. "We understand she was very, very angry that [leaders] didn't even mention the dispute over the islands with the UK." "She was overheard saying, 'This is pointless. Why did I even come here?'"

  11. Argentina calls on firms to halt imports of UK products Argentina’s Industry Minister Debora Giorgi Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:51AM GMT Amid an ongoing dispute over the Malvinas Islands between Argentina and Britain, the Argentinean industry minister has called on the country’s top companies to stop importing British products, Press TV reports. Argentina’s Industry Minister Debora Giorgi on Tuesday called the bosses of at least 20 top firms to urge them to import goods produced elsewhere instead of Britain. The move comes in the hope that it would press Britain to negotiate over the future of the Malvinas Islands as the government of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez has recently stepped up its campaign to assert sovereignty over the islands. Argentina had also banned two British cruise ships from docking in a port in its southernmost city of Ushuia in the Tierra del Fuego province Monday morning. The Malvinas Islands, located about 300 miles off Argentina's coast and home to about 3,000 inhabitants, have been declared as part of the British Overseas Territories since Britain established its colonial rule on the islands in 1833. Argentina, however, has repeatedly dismissed the British claim over the island. Tension has been rising ahead of the 30th anniversary of the 74-day bloody war fought between Britain and Argentina in 1982 over the islands which ended with the British side claiming victory over Argentineans. A year after the war, the UK enforced the British Nationality Act of 1983, which offers citizenship to the islanders. Tensions between the two countries have also re-escalated since 2010 when London authorized oil prospecting around the islands. PressTv
  12. I was reading this news (tension over Falkland islands) and was wondering about 'Iran-Argentina' relations. It is very confusing why the two do not have strong ties; I mean they share a lot of common interests. Especially after the 1994 bombing that was done in Argentina and the blames were directed towards Iranians, some parties (possibly Britz?) were really afraid of the two countries coming together? Argentina should have been Iran's ally just like Venezuela & Brazil. Iran should cooperate and aid Argentina in confronting British satanic aggressions. From Wikipedia: --Relations were somewhat strained between the two countries following the 1994 AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994. --Argentina's exports to Iran increased from $29 million in 2007 to $1.2 billion in 2008. Argentina is Iran's second largest trade partner in Latin America after Brazil. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Argentinian protesters burn Union flag outside UK embassy In another sign of worsening relations between Britain and Argentina, demonstrators have burnt flags outside the British Embassy in Buenos Aires. It comes after a series of sharp comments from leaders in the two countries about the future of the Falkand Islands. This year is the 30th anniversary of the conflict between the two countries. BBC ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Argentinean protesters, opposing Britain's colonial policy in the occupied Falkland islands, have burnt the flag of the United Kingdom while demonstrating outside UK embassy in Buenos Aires. The protest comes after British Prime Minister David Cameron made ridiculous remarks considering the South American nation's desire to reclaim the Falklands (known as Las Malvinas to Argentina) as “colonialism.” Protesters angered by the UK premier's remarks carried banners reading "Government break off relations now," and "English out of the Malvinas.” "It is unacceptable that they send reinforcements and that the little prince (William) should come on maneuvers," said protest leader Wilma Ripoll.

  13. Survey: Most patriotic Brits are Muslims Flying the flag ... British boxer Amir Khan MUSLIMS are more patriotic than the average Brit, a survey has revealed. A massive 83 per cent of Muslims said they were proud to be British — compared with the national average of 79 per cent. They are also more optimistic than the average Brit. Just 31 per cent said our country's best days are in the past. The national average is 45 per cent. Half of those who took part in the poll about our national treasures believe Britain benefits from being multicultural. The results of the survey — published today — shatter the myth that Muslims are not patriotic. And it confirms that icons such as boxer Amir Khan are part of a growing Muslim community happy to celebrate the Union Flag. The poll of 2,000 Brits by think-tank Demos also found that Shakespeare, the National Trust and the Armed Forces are our most prized national treasures. The spontaneous street-sweeping which took place across Britain after the summer riots was also held up as a source of national pride. Tahir Shah, from the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, was not surprised at the results. He said: "Most Muslims are not loud, radical, crazy lunatics like Anjem Choudary who want to get publicity for themselves. They want to get on with their lives quietly. They are proud to be British. "Britain is a shining example. We know that in many other countries Muslims have it worse. In mainland Europe, countries such as France have introduced various Islamophobic laws. "Muslims can practise their faith openly in the UK and many people are thankful for that." Around 70 per cent of British Muslims were born in the UK, with 20 per cent arriving in the post-war immigration wave and just ten per cent arriving in the past decade. Britain's Muslim population is around three million. Ajmal Masroor, from the Islamic Society of Britain, said: "Muslim communities are very loyal to this country. Britain has values that are completely compatible with Islamic values." Tariq Modood, director of the Centre for Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship, said: "Muslims can say to people, 'We are British and you've got us wrong' — or they can say, 'You don't think we're really British? Fine, we're not'. Only a very small minority do this." Volunteers ... clean-up operation after riots Kashif Hussein, 21, a student at University College London, said: "I feel British and Muslim but since 9/11 we have to show it more, to interact more, to show that we're not that stereotype." Shahid Mursaleen, of British Muslim organisation Minhaj-ul-Quran UK, said of the poll: "I agree with the result, which was expected. We are proud to be British because Muslims have contributed to the success of Britain." Omer El-Hamdoon, president of the Muslim Association of Britain, also backed the survey's findings. He said: "A large proportion of Muslims in Britain have been born here, so they are definitely proud to be British. They feel that this country is their country." Despite the Royal Family being people's seventh favourite national treasure, three in ten did not care about the monarchy or did not see them as a symbol of British pride. Volunteering is the biggest single indicator of national pride, while good manners and even the patience to queue also made people feel patriotic. ... http://www.mpacuk.org/
