Somali Islamists declare ‘Jihad’ on Ethiopia


Anyone Listening? What the hell is happening in Africa? As I mentioned in my earlier post African Taliban? Does anyone care to tackle this problem or what? I can see this situtaion as a potential new home for Islamic fundamentalist in Africa.

MOGADISHU: Somalia’s powerful Islamists on Monday declared a ‘Jihad’ against Horn of Africa rival Ethiopia, which they accused of invading Somalia to help the government briefly seize a town controlled by pro-Islamist fighters.

Both sides confirmed the takeover of Buur Hakaba, the first military counter-strike by President Abdullahi Yusuf’s interim government since the Islamists took Mogadishu in June and went on to grab much of Somalia’s south.

“Starting from today, we have declared jihad against Ethiopia,” Islamist leader Sheikh Sharif Ahmed told a news conference, wearing combat fatigues and clutching an AK-47 assault rifle.

Ahmed, usually viewed as a more moderate voice among the Islamists, appeared angry as he addressed reporters. “Heavily armed Ethiopian troops have invaded Somalia. They have captured Buur Hakaba. History shows that Somalis always win when they are attacked from outside,” he said. Residents of Buur Hakaba, seen as a potential flashpoint because it had put the Islamists within 30 km of the government’s base in Baidoa, said Ethiopian troops accompanied government fighters who took the town early on Monday. A government militia commander in Buur Hakaba denied that, and Addis Ababa has consistently said it has not sent any soldiers except for military advisers.

Why Muslim women should thank Straw


Such a wonderful Article. It is so refreshing to read such nice views expressed in such a forthright manner, especially when it’s coming from a Muslim woman pen. In past and even today we have listened to radical, fundamentalist for too long. Now its time for us, and for those who enjoy British culture, British values and British tradition and main thing “Democratic Freedom” to stand up for our real British values and try to defend it in proper and lawful manner.

My mother has always worn traditional Kashmiri clothes — the salwaar kameez, a long tunic worn over trousers, and the chador, which is like a pashmina worn round the neck or over the hair. But no one in my immediate family — here or in Kashmir — covers their face with a nikab (veil). As a child I wore the salwaar kameez at home — and at school a typical English school uniform. My parents never felt that the uniform compromised my faith; the important thing was that I would fit in so that I could take advantage of all the opportunities school offered. I was the hockey team captain and took part in county athletics: how could I have done all of this wearing salwaar kameez, let alone a veil?

Kenyan couple jailed for having sex in mosque


Behave! Having sex at religious place is not acceptable. People who go out for having sex at open public places due to not having any privacy at home, or cant go to (Hotels, Motels, Friends home) please ‘take care’ because not only could people of the general public be watching you , but so could the law. Best this is to avoid this sort of temptation.

NAIVASHA, Kenya – A couple found having sex in a mosque during the holy Islamic month of Ramadan was sentenced to 18 months in prison by a Kenyan court on Monday.

The pair, Peter Kimani and Jennifer Wairimu, were discovered in flagrante delicto on October 3 by a worshipper who investigated the strange noises he heard emanating from a dark corner in Abubakar Mosque in Gilgil, 100 kilometers (63 miles) northwest of the capital Nairobi.

During Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam, Muslims are expressly forbidden to eat, drink, smoke or engage in sexual intercourse during the daylight hours for the length of the 30-day fast.

Kimani pleaded for mercy, saying that he was drunk and thought that he was in a hotel while his partner Wairimu admitted she had been too drunk to know what was going on.

But Naivasha senior magistrate John King’ori dismissed the pair’s plea for leniency, calling their behavior “abominable.”

“Having sex in a mosque is a most abominable thing to religion,” he said.

The Islamic faith strictly forbids Muslims from entering a mosque without thoroughly washing themselves after sexual relations.

Incitement to hatred


After reading following article, I still didn’t understand why few people are so blinded that they believe, what ever is happening is a fault of government and its foreign policy. I believe in democracy and we are very fortunate that we are living in one of most democratic state in world. Democracy gives a right to every one to express their feelings and anger, raise their voice. Democracy give every one chance to elect and form a government and their representative, whom they think will and can work towards the betterment of society and help them to feel secure. Main point in democracy is how majority treats minority, how powerfully people treats power less people. So far I know UK does treat monitory very well, we had given every right to them, they are first class citizen of this country ( we don’t treat them as a second class citizen).

If we look to some countries and see how people get treated in their democracy specially minorities I am sure people will be shocked to know about it. Some of the British Muslim are saying that they are not happy with the policies of government, OK fair enough but you don’t bomb the whole country because you not happy with few elected members of parliaments and their decision.

I tried to answer few questions in this article which is in my opnion is not correct and should be answered.

Incitement to hatred

 

Politicians and the media are creating an ominous climate by exploiting fear and ignorance of Muslims

Soumaya Ghannoushi

Sinking in the Iraqi quagmire and lost in the Afghan labyrinth, Tony Blair turns on Muslims at home, demanding they clear up the mess he and his neocon allies have created.

How can you say that Tony Blair and his allies created a mess? We were celebrating Olympic news on 6th of July and on 7th of July we were moaning. Remember? Some extremist youths bombed London killed more than 50 innocent’s people, it’s not the fault of Tony Blair or its government allies as they didn’t attacked any UK citizens. When you kills innocents then you are solely responsible for backlash and punishment not some one else. Since that London bombing the only thing I heard from Muslims leaders that it’s a fault of UK government policies.

Ok say for a time being if I agree with your arguments about Foreign Policy will you be able to justify me London bombing? Nope because you can’t bomb your own place and kill innocents just because you not agreed of policies of your own government. For example I am sure loads of young’s people have arguments with their parents and not agreed with their parent’s rules and regulations about home, but they don’t bomb their own house and kill their own parents? Do they?

Same rule apply with country policy, when government make policies they made by taking whole picture in their mind including domestic, international and security issues and internal threat. If these young generation Muslims are not agreed with policies then they should show their protest in peace full manner and most important in a democratic way, try to integrate with society and choose their true representative in elections. No one can justify killing of innocents on the name of government policies. These acts of terrorism make much harder for any government to change any policies.

 

Instead of facing up to their moral and political responsibility for combating ignorance, our politicians are doing the reverse. They are indulging in scaremongering, playing on the public’s fears and exploiting people’s lack of familiarity with the Muslim world. It is thus hardly surprising that 53% of Britons now see Islam as a problem.

Well politicians are doing right thing, they are trying hard to let the people of other faith and religion understand your faith and religion (Islam). But when some of your leaders published public letter demanding special treatments, it make difficult for government to make other religious group understand. Because we live in multicultural society government can not give you any special treatment every one is equal. Like for example I remember some time in august your leader Dr Syed Aziz Pasha, secretary general of the Union of Muslim Organisations of the UK and Ireland, demanded special holidays for important days in their two main religious festivals – Ramadan and Eid-ul-Adha – should be made public holidays for followers of the faith and want to implement Sharia Law for their family matters.

 

How you can think of Sharia Law? We got constitution so we have to follow that. You can’t make your own rule and follow that and challenge the main constitution. We live in democratic country and in democratic country or even in non democratic country you can not challenge the entity of country like constitution.

 

Exact line

‘We told her (Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly) if you give us religious rights, we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.’

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=400605&in_page_id=1770&ct=5

 

Show some maturity and Act like a leader of your community and condemned the killings and bombing civilians place with out putting your own political agenda on first place at least for once. Help this government to help you and serve in proper way.

 

It’s Just My Opinion. Any One Agree?
