KILLING AT CHARLIE HEBDO: IS AN ASSAULT ON FREEDOM AND LIBERTY

The Association of British Muslims strongly condemn and express our revulsion at the brutal and insane act of violence and murder of twelve people and injuring eleven others in Paris at the offices of the satirical Magazine Charlie Hebdo.

On behalf of the Muslims residing in Great Britain we express our sorrow and sympathy and convey our condolences to the grieving relatives, friends and associates of those who lost their lives in such tragic circumstance.

The slogan of the perpetrators of this crime “we have avenged Prophet Mohammed, God (Allah) is great” was deliberately made to malign all people of the Muslim faith in the eyes of the world. Islam practiced by all Muslims, except a very small minority, believe that human rights, rights and equality of all religion, race and cultural, plus social justice and freedom are the pillars of our faith. These terrorists are extremely wicked, dangerous, brutal, fanatical part of a particular sect or cult who have disguised themselves wearing the cloak of Islam. They have absolutely and I repeat absolutely nothing what so ever to do with Islam, just like Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland had nothing do anything with Christ or Christianity in their recent feuds. If they claim that they are “the pure and true believers and protectors of Islam and Muslims then why have they been killing thousands upon thousands of their own Muslim brothers and sisters within the bounds of the Muslim world. They have slaughtered men, women and children who say God (“Allah”) is great five times a day in their prayers, prayers that are all about peace, love and charity. These, unscrupulous, hideous and barbaric criminals did not hesitate in beheading Peter Edward Kassing, an American who had converted to Islam and adopted a Muslim name “Abdul Rahman Kassing. ,

Time has come to tackle this “cult” who are in a comparative way the Ku Klux Klan of the Muslim world. They are by now a global problem, a global menace. These scourge, the very scum of the modern world are branded as Islamists, whilst I keep repeating that they have absolutely nothing to do with Islam or its ideology. We have to acknowledge the fact that they are not only very well financed, armed and trained but also well versed with the art of using the media, especially the social media and the internet for their ill begotten aims. Their main objective is to subjugate other religions, cultures and societies. All efforts must be made and with great haste and urgency to cut off their sources of funding even if they are coming from some of “our best trading partners”. Never in the history of the modern world have terrorists and warlords received so much from so many, so freely, like ISIS, which many nations of the world must envy. Fellows like Abubaker Baghdadi must be saying to each other, “guys we have never had it so good”.

For the sake of regime, too many times we have encouraged, formed, financed, armed and trained rebel armies whose behaviour are no different to any other terrorist organisation. Often they have had boomerang effects. It is now appearing in the media that two of the terrorists named in the Charlie Hebdo massacre are ‘Syria returned’ i.e. ‘terrorists made in Syria’ perhaps at one of our friendly training camps. After gaining field experience, they have been returned to France with compliments. How sad, what a tragedy.

We beseech our Muslim brothers and sister in this country, France and rest of Europe to work hard within the community, with the government, the police, local authorities and the media in exposing and bringing justice to people with such twisted minds. In the safety of our nations and all its citizens lie the safety of all of us, Muslims or non-Muslims.

One thing I like about Jehovah’s Witnesses…

While they’re a favourite theme of many jokes and recipients of a great deal of criticism, one thing I personally like about Jehovah’s Witnesses is the artwork in their magazines. In each picture, they show people of different ethnic backgrounds together, as one. Shouldn’t we all be doing that?

Human Family; Past, Present and Future

By Paul Salahuddin Armstrong

(Speech originally delivered at the New Humanity Movement event, 13 April 2014).

A cosmic explosion of incredible proportions gave birth to this Universe… Hundreds of billions of years later, a star was formed in the outer reaches of the Milky Way, bringing Light to a Solar System just being born…

A small planet within this system, life emerged, evolving over hundreds of billions of years, until some left the forests, wondered the savannah, and during their evolution became more aware of their surroundings and started to wonder about their creation, where they were from, were inspired to draw, speak, write, settle and began to build the first small villages and towns.

Was this an entirely natural process of evolution, or was there some agency that speeded the process up, giving us a helping hand along the way? We can’t be entirely sure… But even some evolutionists themselves question, how Humans have been evolving so fast, and how our brain capacities increased as rapidly as they did, on an evolutionary time-scale? While they will still maintain of course that this is what happened, it’s interesting to note even they question these particular points…

Those of us who’ve researched our ancient past, what historians refer to as “prehistory” question these points ever further, for even if we did evolve according to the standard evolutionary narrative, it seems our civilisation did not. Many ancient civilisations appear to have emerged fully formed, already with high degrees of sophistication, writing, mathematics, geometry, tool making, all at levels unexpected at the times they emerged. A fact that has only in recent decades started to become ever more apparent.
