Snip from news Huffington Post:

A Conservative councillor has been given the boot by the Tory Party for mocking burkas in a post on Facebook that compared them to bin liners.

The photo shared by Enfield Council's Chris Joannides showed a woman and a girl dressed in burkas walking next to two bin bags, captioned: "I saw her standing there and I told her she had three beautiful children. She didn’t have to get all pissed off and threaten me. It was an honest mistake!”

Muslim response to Ergun Caner's son suicide report

As a Muslim, my thoughts are with Ergun Caner and his family. We should never give up hope in God's mercy and we should never despair to the extent of suicide. IF there are any readers who are tackling suicidal thoughts and require somebody to talk to in private, please do email me.

Ergun Caner's 15-year-old son apparently has committed suicide. Caner is president of Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Georgia, as well as a well-known Christian author and Baptist minister. [CharismaNews]

Muslim Condemns Attack on Israeli Footballers

As a Muslim, I condemn this attack on Israeli footballers. We must remember, these footballers are just that, football players. They are not the ones who are killing Palestinian children.

You can't label all Israelis as murderers of Palestinian children. You can't attack innocent citizens of Israel just because it's government is murdering and terrorizing Palestinians. Many Israelis oppose the Israeli governments war crimes - many of which are orthodox Jews.

Israeli footballers attacked as anti-Semitic violence increases

Israeli football team Maccabi Haifa's pre-season friendly against French side Lille was stopped after pro-Palestinian protesters entered the pitch and attacked Israeli players.

Supporters, reportedly of Turkish origin, attacked the Maccabi players towards the end of the game, taking place in Austria.

It was reported that the Maccabi players were unhurt following the ugly clashes, although some players did retaliate. (read more:

Muslim Scholars Condemn ISIS on Mosul Christian Expulsions

Islamic scholars condemn expulsion of Iraq's 'Christian brothers'

DOHA (Reuters) - An influential group of Islamic scholars has denounced the forced expulsion of Christians from northern Iraq by Islamist hardliners, saying it paves the way for fighting between the country's ethnic and religious groups.

The Christian community of Mosul fled to the Kurdish autonomous region last week, ending a presence stretching back nearly 2,000 years, after Islamic State militants set them a deadline to submit to their rule or leave

"The International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) condemns the forced expulsion of the Christian brothers of Iraq from their homes, cities and provinces," the group said in a statement posted on the website of its leader, the influential cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi on Tuesday.
"These are acts that violate Islamic laws, Islamic conscience and leave but a negative image of Islam and Muslims."

The IUMS, comprising senior Sunni religious scholars from around the world with links to more moderate factions of the Muslim Brotherhood, views the Islamic State, which has taken control of a swathe of northern Iraq, as being too extreme and says its doctrine contradicts the true teachings of Islam.

Concept of Dhimmi explained by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

Hamza Yusuf on Dhimmitude

What is dhimmi?

Hamza Yusuf points out that the Dhimmi system is not a negative thing. He gave the example of the Gulf War (1) where the US protected Kuwait at a COST - protection money. Hamza Yusuf states protection is not free and the Islamic dhimmi system is much cheaper than what America charged.

Hamza Yusuf gave a historically documented case of Muslims returning the Jizya because the Muslims were unable to protect the Christians and Jews of that area. Muslims weren't squeezing people for every drop - it was a case of pay if you had the capacity. Old people who couldn't pay were exempt.

A state of humiliation?

 Hamza Yusuf touches on the translation of Quran 9:29 and the tafsirs. Hamza Yusuf finds it dangerous to say 'in a state of humiliation', he seems to disagree with this view. He highlights that there is a big debate over what the word 'Saaghir' means. Hamza Yusuf suggests we can look at it as 'a minority' rather than 'a state of humiliation'.

What does Dhimma mean?

Hamza Yusuf teaches us it means 'responsibility'. He also states it's the Muslims' responsibility to defend the dhimmis and their places of worship. Hamza Yusuf reminds us of the Islamic teaching of not harming the dhimmi (people in the Muslim world should be reminded of this).

Hamz aYusuf is honest, he doesn't whitewash anything and does touch on the misbehaviour of Muslims in history.

Hamza Yusuf offers an important point so we can have a realistic view of Muslim history; in Egypt it took 300 years before the Muslims reached 50% of the population, it Syria it took 500 years. Hamza Yusuf sees the existence of minorities in Muslim lands as a source of pride as it shows Muslims defended their minorities.

Belgian Muslim Woman is Heroic!

Veronique Cools, a 25-year-old Belgian convert to Islam, has has helped over 1,000 people who have accepted Islam in the past 8 years.

Cools, who accepted Islam herself at a very young age after being influenced by her Muslim friends and researching into the religion, turned her home into an Islamic center for Belgian Muslims seeking to learn more about their religion.

Saying that she herself had to overcome many prejudices when looking into Islam, Cools then successfully helped her family overcome them too. Now her close family are also Muslims.
'Prejudices stem from not being introduced to real Islam properly,' she said as she was preparing iftar food packets for visiting Muslims to break their Ramadan fasts. 'As Muslims we need to explain ourselves to society a lot better.'

The center now has more than 1,000 members, most of them Belgian women, and is open for all of Belgium's 50,000 Muslims

Porn Searches in Muslim Countries Decrease in Ramadan

Ramadan is truly a blessed month.

This article is taken from Sulayman's Stories

I’ve been playing with the Google Trends feature, and there’s a huge fall in porn-related searches compared to last month. I pulled up several countries to compare over the past 90 days. Each graph shows the relative number of Google searches for a topic compared to their peak search popularity from the last 3 months. Based on this data, searches for “Sex” or “porn” fell by half on the first of Ramadan and stay lower than other months. That sudden dip on each graph is dated June 29 of this year.

Here’s Egypt:

Here’s Pakistan:

Here’s Bangladesh:

Here’s UAE:

Here’s all the above countries overlaid together:

I see the data slowly creeping back up. We still have the last 10 days, so let’s remember the lessons of Surah Al-Asr and help one another avoid bad deeds this blessed month.

Grammar in Quran - Changing of Tenses

A common theme in the Qur'an is the consistent change of tense in the structure of a Surah. Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) will begin a verse in third-person and shortly after the proceeding verses will narrate from the first-person.

When the average English speaking individual reads a translation of the Book of Allah this sudden shift in narrative is seen as grammatically incorrect, which often makes them question the Divine Speech of Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) and consider it... flawed with grammatical errors.

In this special Ramadan series episode of the Tafsir of Surat al-Fātiĥah Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi discusses the eloquence of the verse 'Īyāka Na`budu Wa 'Īyāka Nasta`īn, and clarifies the misunderstanding of applying the grammatical rules of English to the Divine Speech of Allah (subḥānahu wa ta'āla) written in Arabic.

Muslims in Ireland - AntiMuslim Abuse

An informative report by Dr James Carr on racism and bigotry against Muslims in Ireland has been published by the University of Limerick. Based on a survey of Irish Muslims on their experiences of anti-Muslim hostility, complemented by one-to-one interviews and focus group discussions, the report found that 36% of respondents felt they had been targeted on the basis of being identified as Muslim.

Dr Carr writes: “The manner in which this hostility manifested varied. Participants reported experiencing physical assaults (22%) ranging from being struck, having hijabs forcibly removed, to being pushed, spat at; some reported being threatened or harassed (20%). A white Irish male revert to Islam recalls his experiences of physical forms of abuse: ‘I have been pushed and have had people spit in my face, for being Muslim’. Fewer participants (14%) indicated that they had property damaged. Those who detailed how this manifested referred to tyres being slashed, having eggs thrown at their home inter alia.”

The survey found that women, who were more easily identified as Muslim because of their dress, experienced higher levels of anti-Muslim hostility (44%) and discrimination (40%) than men (28% and 22% respectively). Women interviewees also reported their frustration at being subjected to anti-Muslim stereotyping and regarded condescendingly as passive victims of male oppression.

Dr Carr adds: “The discourse of oppressed Muslim women also serves to ‘legitimise’ the deployment of ‘liberation tactics’ by those would be ‘liberators’ of the oppressed. The impact these ‘tactics’ have on the Muslim female participants in this study includes shock, depression, feelings of fear and vulnerability. Jada explains how she was told to ‘take that thing rag off your head you you’re too good looking for that’ by a patient in the hospital she works in.”

Muslim Response to Israeli Professor's Rape Comments

One can imagine the anti-Muslim propaganda right-wing Islamophobes would churn out if a misguided Muslims was openly discussing the idea of using rape to deter Israeli/American attacks.

Well, it's an Israeli professor who is talking about the use of rape to deter attacks. Guess the right-wing media will not be reporting the comments by professor Mordechai Kedar all that much.

A few points on the sick rape comments by the Israeli professor, Mordechai Kedar:

1. Rape is a crime and a sin. It's a form of oppression. The Israeli professor, Mordechai Kedar,  would do well to look into the teachings of Muslim scholars on rape:

Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Suhain Webb on rape and rapists

2. Why does this professor even entertain the idea of committing crimes (rapes) against INNOCENT women - being related to a terrorist or a Hamas memer does not make somebody guilty and punishable by rape.

3. Who does Professor Mordechai Kedar suggest carries out these rapes? The IDF? Him?

4. Just because this one Israeli (Mordechai Kedar) has spoken in such a distasteful manner, it does not mean all Israelis agree with this man. Let's not be like the crazy Islamophobes who latch onto the ramblings of an isolated and misguided Muslim for purposes of propaganda against ALL Muslims.

5. Rather than talking about how to punish terrorists or deter them why not talk about what is actually aggravating them so much. What is Israel doing to piss these people off to such an extent? How about Israel stops taking their land, lifts the siege on them and stops killing their kids and other family members. I'd think that would reduce terrorism much more than rape would!!!

Israeli Professor: Rape Hamas Militants' Mothers and Sisters to Deter Terrorist Attacks

An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.

The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.

"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet

"It sounds very bad, but that's the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."

To the shocked radio presenter who said that "we cannot take such steps, of course", Kedar replied:
"I'm not talking about what we should or shouldn't do. I'm talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That's all. That's the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister's honor."

Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.

Kedar's words triggered an angered reaction among feminist activists in Israel, who sent a letter to the University president Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz in which they condemn Kedar's "words of incitement that grant legitimacy to Israel Defense Forces soldiers and Israeli civilians to commit rape, and endanger both Israeli and Palestinian women.

"Kedar's words echo expressions that treat rape as a remedial practice, although it is a war crime." [From:]

#ArtMonday4palestine Sr. Eman shares a powerful piece

Muslim Condemns Sick Imam Who Raped a Girl in Mosque

Muslim condemns sex crime and hate

Sexually perverted people belong to all religions. Islam is no different. Sadly for Muslims, when a sick Muslim commits a sexual crime it's used as a propaganda tool to attack all Muslims and even Islam by right-wing Islamophobes.

That's exactly what's happening with the story of a sick imam in Afghanistan who brutally raped a 10 year old girl in a mosque. Notice the parallels between this account and the accounts of Christian priests and pastors who commit similar sexual crimes on young girls and boys. The difference is, the sick sexual crimes by the Christian leaders are, on the whole, not used as propaganda pieces to attack all Christians and Christianity. This is not the case when a Muslim commits similar sick acts:
Kunduz, Afghanistan:  It was bad enough that the alleged rape took place in the sanctity of a mosque and that the accused man was a mullah who invoked the familiar defense that it had been consensual sex.

But the victim was only 10 years old. And there was more: The authorities said her family members openly planned to carry out an honor killing in the case - against the young girl. The mullah offered to marry his victim instead.

As a Muslim I condemn the sick sexual crime committed by this imam regardless of where it took place. However the corruption is even more apparent as he committed his crime in a mosque according to the report.

As a Muslim I pray that this girl makes a full recovery and is protected from further harm. Ameen.

We have already seen Islam does not allow rape as per the comments of famous Muslim scholars.

The worry for this Afghan rape victim is that of honor killing now:

Honor killings in rape cases are common in Afghanistan, and are often more important to the victim's family than vengeance against the attacker. Human rights groups say about 150 honor killings a year come to light, and many more probably go unreported.

Honor killing is another backward practice which learned Muslims have condemned. It's something that is not allowed in Islam as seen in this video featuring Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Dr Bilal Philips.

All in all, reports of crimes such as these should never be misused for purposes of an anti-Muslim campaign. The ignorant crimes of a Muslim in Afghanistan or wherever is not synonymous with Islam and is not representative of the Muslim global community. Just like the sexual crimes of Christian priests and pastors are not reflective of Christianity and/or other Christians.

Malcolm X, Gandhi, Mandela and Einstein on Israel...

Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein and Mahatma Gandhi on Israel

The Role of Social Media in Exposing the Israeli Army

Technology is a blessing in disguise for the catastrophe in Palestine (and elsewhere). While the images of the children and innocents murdered by the terrorists (aka the Israeli army) move us to tears and remind us of our helplessness, they also serve to alert the broader public who do not understand the inhumanity of the Israelis who the real perpetrators are.

Muslims are spreading these images amongst themselves, but they do not understand that the average American still ...believes all of Hamas is (and by extension all Palestinians are) a terrorist organization, and Israel is only 'defending itself'. This imaginary narrative perpetuated by mainstream American media stations will only be countered by hard facts - facts that images and videos brilliantly convey. It is difficult looking at the body of a baby with his brains blown out, or dead kids who were playing soccer on the beach, as 'terrorists' that Israel has to defend itself against.

For the first time, we are seeing the beginnings of an anti-Israeli wave, from comedians to singers to Hollywood celebrities. Politicians will be the last, because AIPAC and other pro-Israeli lobbies finance their campaigns. But even politicians will have to come around in the end (as they did for civil rights and other issues that they were themselves not keen on promoting).

Therefore once again, I urge ALL Muslims not to trivialize the role of social media. Post noteworthy news items, images, and videos on your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Together, and with the help of Allah, we represent a more powerful force than Fox News, CNN, ABC, BBC and all the other groups combined.

George Galloway and Gayatri: First Child

By the Grace of God and the limitless kindness of the NHS staff at St Thomas's Hospital Westminster London, Gayatri and George Galloway MP are grateful to announce the birth of their son Toren Mustaqim, a brother to Lucy Zein and Faris.

Toren was born at 3.22am on July 15th after a mammoth period of labour weighing a heavyweight 10 pounds (4.57 kg). Mother and baby are both doing well.

Toren in Gaelic (Irish and Scottish) means both "Chief" and "craggy hill". In Dutch it mean...s "tower". In Arabic it is related to the word for "mountain".

"Mustaqim is from the Arabic"Sirata Mustaqim" meaning "true path" repeated five times daily by Muslims in the "Al Fateha" prayer.

Toren was born to a troubled world but he began his life gazing over at the Houses of Parliament surrounded by a family which loves him.

May the Lord of all the worlds protect him and keep him, let him stand tall and strong, and always on the true path.

Malaysian Airlines shot down in Ukraine

A Malaysia Airlines plane with 295 people on board is feared to have crashed in the Ukraine amid claims it was shot down.

TV pictures from the scene showed a pall of smoke billowing into the sky apparently from the stricken aircraft.

The plane is thought to be flight MH17 - a Boeing 777-200 travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

In a tweet Malaysia Airlines said: "Malaysia Airlines has lost contact of MH17 from Amsterdam. The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace. More details to follow."

Ukraine's Interior Minister was quoted as saying the plane had been shot down.
The jet would have been flying at high altitude on an intercontinental flight that took it over the crisis hit region of Ukraine, where the authorities have accused Russia-backed separatists of previous attacks on aircraft.

Earlier today the Ukrainian authorities said one of their fighter jets was shot down by an air-to-air missile from a Russian plane and Ukrainian troops were fired upon by missiles from a village inside Russia.

Neturei Karta on Zionism - Dr Yasir Qadhi

From Dr Yasir Qadhi's FaceBook:

The Neturei Karta are a small, unpopular group amongst the Orthodox Jews. They believe that Zionism is a blasphemy of the highest order against Judaism and the laws of the Torah. They stick to the laws of the Torah and believe that it is unholy to steal people's lands and persecute them in the name of religion.

Since they are not blinded by Zionism, they can point out the realities of the Israeli genocide and holocaust being inflicted on the Palestinians.
We Muslims should aware of these groups (and also recognize that they are a small minority that is, unfortunately for us, not representative of mainstream Judaism). I've had the privilege to meet Rabbi Weiss multiple times and consider him to be an ally against the racist apartheid policies of Zionism.

Along with the Neturei Karta, there are also many secular and liberal Jews who are opposed to the policies of Israel (and at times of Zionism as well) purely on humanitarian grounds. They stand with us in truth and justice - may Allah increase their ranks!

Muslim Scholar on Israel and Palestine - Dr Yasir Qadhi

Recent events in the Palestinian Occupied Territories are exposing the apartheid regime for what it is. We are currently seeing mainstream news agencies just beginning to highlight some of the injustices that are endemically (and punitively!) performed by the Israeli government. The tide of public opinion will change insha Allah, despite whatever Rupert Murdoch and Fox News try to do. Truth will always prevail in the end.

Muslims need to collectively be vocal about such atrocities and show their colleagues and friends the real face of Israeli aggression. This can be done by frequently forwarding relevant news items, or sharing them on Facebook or Twitter. Collectively, we CAN make a difference.
Here is one such website to spread in your circle of influence.
May Allah allow peace and justice to prevail for our Palestinian brothers and sisters!

The following comment was posted on a online chat forum for Muslims yesterday inviting responses:
Mail Muslim extremist
Some of the other members of the forum became suspicious by the strange comment and decided to check the new member’s ISP address:
mail Muslim extremist 1
More up-to-date checks of the ISP address by other members of the forum showed the comment was posted by someone working at the Daily Mail Group (the Evening Standard used to be part of the Daily Mail Group):
mail Muslim extremist 2
The whole thread has now been deleted from the forum but it can still be viewed on Google’s webcache here.

So it seems the Daily Mail ordered one of their journalists to pose as an extremist on a Muslim forum to try to elicit comments they could use for an anti-Muslim story.
Fortunately they were busted.

In a civilised society, a national newspaper journalist trying to stir up hatred and controversy with lies and subterfuge should be so professionally shameful it would normally lead to the sack for the hack concerned and investigations into standards of journalistic accountability at the publication.

At the Daily Mail – it’s just another day at the office.

6 Great Converts To Islam

Muslim Response to Katie Hopkins, James McConnell and Peter Robinson

People can be transformed. The opponents of the Prophet (p) were particularly vicious against Muslims. Hind actually bit into the liver of the Prophet's uncle, Hamzah, when he was martyred at the Battle of Uhud. However, she later became a Muslim, and hence became a Companion of the Prophet (p), a member of that special generation of humanity. In fact, she even narrated hadith which can be found in the well-known compilations. Repentance is a recourse that the Lord of the World's has given humanity. [p129, Purification of the Heart by Hamza Yusuf]

 Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.” [Source: Sahih Muslim 2564]

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Dr. Siddiqui was sentenced to 86 years for a "crime" in which she alone was injured, she has now suffered needlessly for more than 11 years. We ask the government to affirm the American ideals of "liberty and justice for all." End Aafia’s suffering; reunite her with her family.

Muslim Countries Should Speak Up for Uighur Muslims - Fasting Banned in China

Muslim countries really need to use their political influence in persuading China to lift the restrictions on Uighur Muslims. Saudi Arabia and other gulf Muslim countries have economic power while Pakistan, Bangladesh and Tajikistan are geographically closer to China. These countries should do more to speak up for the rights of Muslims in China.

Chinese Uighurs defy Ramadan ban

The government's attempt to clamp down on religious expression has backfired among Uyghurs.

Kashgar, China - Chinese authorities have imposed restrictions on Uighur Muslims during the month of Ramadan, banning government employees and school children from fasting, in what rights groups say has become an annual attempt at systematically erasing the region's Islamic identity. 
Chinese authorities have justified the ban on fasting by saying it is meant to protect the health of students, and restrictions on religious practices by government officials are meant to ensure the state does not support any particular faith.

Yet in Kashgar, in Xinjiang province, China's westernmost city, close to the border with Tajikstan and Kyrgyztan, Uighur Muslims say the restrictions have backfired. Not only have locals become more observant of Islamic practices, but many have found ways to flaunt Chinese laws restricting everything from who may attend the mosque, to which copies of the Quran are read.

Governments Falsely Label People as 'Al Qaeda'...

Labelling opponents 'al-Qaeda' allows repressive governments to do what they want with limited international criticism. After 11 September governments can expect American support, bot material and moral, to help counter any perceived Islamic extremism threat. During the autumn of 2001 al-Qaeda cells, previously undetected, were 'discovered' in scores of countries. Tashkent suddenly branded the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a group whose links to Bin Laden are tenuous, as 'al-Qaeda'. For Beijing it was the Uighur Muslims who were designated as the local branch of Bin Laden's network, despite the fact that, though some individuals in some of the various Muslim groups resisting Chinese rule in the southeast of China may, at one time or another, have spent time in Afghan training camps, unrest in the region dates back to the first moments of Chinese domination. In Macedonia in March 2002 eight young Pakistani men were shot dead by police. The minister of the interior was swift to proclaim a victory for his, fairly unsavoury, government in the war against bin Laden. The men were merely illegal economic migrants. When I visited the Tunisian embassy in London in January 2002 I was shown a list of 'Muslim extremists living in Britain allegedly linked to bin Laden'. The list comprised well-known, largely left wing, dissidents who the Tunisians had been trying to quieten for a decade or more.

...One of the most egregious examples of this sort of manipulation is in Kashmir. The fact that bin Laden has never shown any real interest in the disputed Himalayan mountain state, let alone tried to go there, has not stopped repeated attempts by Indian intelligence to claim his presence there.

What Israeli Soldiers did to Tarek Abu Khuder


Minoria on Radical Moderate

The article also had a comment by Radical Moderate and he is the same.He claims to be a Christian yet he,unlike the owner of the blog,doesn't express himself like one.He uses insulting language,neglecting the command of Jesus:"Be as clever/sly as a serpent and as innocent as a dove".I have noticed he has always been like that since he has been commenting,so by Jesus' standard,he is no Christian.Yet,undeniably he actually,against all logic to the contrary(like in the case of Irshad,for example)believes he is following Jesus.

Christiano Ronaldo views on Israel and Palestine

World Cup Star Cristiano Ronaldo refuse to exchange Jersey with Israel players and says " “I do not exchange my shirt with ASSASSINS”"

This was a phrase used by the Portuguese star Cristiano at a meeting after a friendly playoff between Israel and Portugal before the World Cup.

After the match, an Israeli player removing his shirt offered it to Ronaldo, who refused because he could not agree to wear a jersey on which there was the flag of the State of Israel.
In the locker room when reporters asked him why he had refused to exchange his jersey, he said “I do not exchange my shirt with murderers & ASSASSINS” 

A Real Euro-star: Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the world’s most expensive footballer when he joined Real Madrid for £80 million from Manchester United, made his full international debut for Portugal in 2003.

This is not the first time the Portuguese star Ronaldo has shown his solidarity with Palestinians, last year he auctioned off his soccer boot in gold, to help Palestinian victims of Israeli bombing. [MPACUK]

Elton John WRONG about Jesus (pbuh)

Elton John is being reported as claiming that Jesus would have supported gay marriage.

If Elton John really believes what the newspapers are claiming he believes about Jesus then he is clearly in error. Elton John is clearly wrong!

When Jesus (p) returns to earth he will follow Islam. Islam forbids homosexual sex. Clearly Elton John is wrong.

Even if one looks at Christian tradition, one can clearly see that orthodox Christianity would also disagree with Elton John's claims:

According to the NT, Jesus promotes marriage between man and woman as natural and as the only legitimate union. Jesus is reported to have said:

4"Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,'
5 and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?
6 So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." (Matthew 19: 4-6)

If that is not sufficient then there is further (and even stronger) evidence of Jesus opposing the idea of homosexuality. Jesus is reported to have said:

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. (Matthew 5:17)

So, we see through this quotation that Jesus was supporting the Law; we also know Jesus was an expert and a teacher of the Law. So what does the Law say about homosexuality? We can get the answer from Leviticus which reports:

" 'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. (Leviticus 18:22)

In fact Leviticus goes further by reporting:

" 'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. (Leviticus 20:13)
