Britain: Bid to Crack Down on Islamic Extremism Faces Resistance
2015-07-24 | The Gatestone Institute

Britain is facing an "unprecedented" threat from hundreds of battle-hardened jihadists who have been trained in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, according to MI5, the domestic counter-intelligence and security agency. It warns that are now more Britons trained in terrorism than at any point in recent memory.
More than 700 Britons are believed to have travelled to Syria and Iraq, according to British authorities. Over half of these Britons are thought to have since returned home, where they pose a significant threat to national security.
Britain's terrorism threat alert is at the second-highest level of "severe," meaning an attack is "highly likely."
MI5's warnings are included in a major new report on the regulation of surveillance powers. Also known as the Anderson Report, the 380-page document was written by the UK's Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, David Anderson QC. The report states:
"MI5 has pointed out some of the recent factors which reinforce their concerns about the terrorist threat. Terrorist related arrests are up 35% compared to 2010. The number who have travelled to Syria and undertaken terrorist training since 2012 is already higher than has been seen in other 21st century theatres, such as Pakistan/Afghanistan, East Africa and Yemen.
"The threat posed on their return comprises not just attack planning but radicalization of associates, facilitation and fundraising, all of which further exacerbate the threat. The number of UK-linked individuals who are involved in or been exposed to terrorist training and fighting is higher than it has been at any point since the 9/11 attacks in 2001. MI5 regard this aspect of the threat as unprecedented. Some travelers were previously unknown to MI5.
"The volume and accessibility of extremist propaganda has increased. UK-based extremists are able to talk directly to ISIL fighters and their wives in web forums and on social media. The key risk is that this propaganda is able to inspire individuals to undertake attacks without ever traveling to Syria or Iraq. Through these media outputs, ISIL have driven the increase in unsophisticated attack methodology seen in recent months in Australia, France and Canada.
The report reveals that MI5 has successfully disrupted two attack plots by lone wolves in the past nine months, both in the late stages of preparation. According to MI5, "identifying such individuals is increasingly challenging, exacerbated by the current limitations in their technical capabilities."
Separately, the UK's lead police officer on counter-terrorism, Mark Rowley, announced the latest arrest figures — nearly one every day — which underline the scale of the challenge British police are facing to tackle the jihadist threat.
According to Rowley, there were a record 338 arrests for terrorism-related offenses in the last financial year (April 2014 to March 2015), a 33% increase on the 254 arrests in the previous year. He said that 157 (46%) of the arrests were linked to Syria, and 56 were under 20 years of age, an "emerging trend."
Rowley said that 79% of those arrested were British nationals and 11% were female. He added that 50% of the arrests were made in London and that roughly 50% of those arrested were later charged (up from around 40% in previous years). The arrests ranged from fundraising for jihadist groups to facilitation, preparation and execution of terrorist attack plans.

BREAKING: Prince Charles Makes Devastating Statement About Islam… Muslims Are Outraged
While the President of the United States is seemingly taking the side of radical Islamists, and working to weaken and destroy the fundamental principles that Western civilization and society are built upon, other leaders are stepping up to lead the fight against the destructive and murderous ideology.

The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles is in the middle of a week-long tour of the Middle East, where it is expected that he will deliver a strong message to Muslim leaders regarding the prevalence and growth of the radical Islamist mindset.
According to Mad World News, the Crown Prince intends to demand that Muslim leaders in the U.K, and around the world, stop radicalizing young people, and to show some respect for Western culture and values.
He is also telling them that any Muslims who come to the U.K. need to abide by the English standards that are already in place, and stop trying to force their way of life on the people who were there before them.
“The radicalization of people in Britain is a great worry,” the prince told the BBC. “The extent to which this is happening is alarming, particularly in a country like our’s where we hold values dear.”
The prince is further troubled by how rampant the radical ideology is on the Internet, and how easy it is for young people to be radicalized online.
Such a strong stance against radical Islam and in defense of Christianity has elevated the prince to the historic title of “defender of the faith.”
The prince has lived up to the title by calling out Islam for the persecution of Christians and other minority religions in the Middle East, by unequivocally stating that Christians were in the region first, hundreds of years before the arrival of Islam.
He has strongly denounced the atrocious actions of the Islamic State, and how they have slaughtered and exiled hundreds of thousands of Christians and Yazidis from northern Iraq.  He says that if this continues there may soon come a day when there are no more Christians in the Middle East.
“The tragedy is even greater because Christians have been in the Middle East for 2,000 years, before Islam came in the 8th Century,” Charles stated.
The prince’s tour begins with a meeting with King Abdullah II in Jordan, before also traveling to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates, where he will also hopefully address the funding for radical Islamic terrorism that originate in those countries.
We commend Prince Charles for standing up in defense of the Christian faith, particularly in the Middle East, and will pray for his safe and successful return from the region.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you are glad to see other world leaders standing up to radical Islam, since our “leader” obviously won’t do it.

Court rejects latest assisted suicide battle
Mon 20 Jul 2015
By Antony Bushfield
The High Court has dismissed a claim from a man with locked-in syndrome that doctors should be allowed to help him to die.

The 50-year-old, identified only as AM or Martin, argued that the General Medical Council (GMC) guidance unreasonably stopped help being given to those who want to die.
He is almost totally paralysed by a stroke, unable to speak and wants to have the option of ending his life.
The court was told that in order for Martin to travel to a suicide clinic abroad he would need his medical history.
But the judges heard doctors would not do this as they could be seen to have assisted his suicide.
GMC guidance says when a patient raises the idea of assisted suicide a doctor must listen and discuss reason but cannot "encourage or assist" the person to die.
Lord Justice Elias and Mr Justice Collins, sitting in London, ruled the guidance lawful and threw out his case.

Vicar criticised over involvement in marriage reality show
Mon 20 Jul 2015
By Marcus Jones
A Church of England priest is being criticised for taking part in Channel 4 reality show Married at First Sight.

Revd Nick Devenish from St Mary and St Michael's in Cartmel, Cumbria was part of the five person expert panel who chose the couples who married without previously meeting.
Speaking to The Times, the Bishop of Manchester Rt Revd David Walker accused the show of "inappropriate and rather seedy behaviour".
Addressing the vicar's involvement, he said: "I do not believe it was a good idea for [Mr Devenish] to take part.
"The Church wants marriage to be successful and we don't achieve that by reducing it to a scientific experiment. I was at General Synod with 450 devout Anglicans and not one of the people I spoke to thought this was a good idea."
But Revd Devenish has defended the show. Speaking to the Church Times, he said: "I do not have any regrets. I do hope that society starts to consider the questions being asked by the hundreds of people we saw...Whether we do so consciously or unconsciously, the drive to have a perfect career, which affects how many hours people were working to keep a roof over their heads, means the energy to find someone else is not there.
Channel Four
"It was a privilege to have been in that place, seeking to address the problems that young people are facing. The Church has so much to offer about the importance of relationships, and particularly marriage. The Church does want to be part of people's lives; we need to move ourselves to where people are."

One and half thousand people auditioned for the show. Three couples were matched together and while two ceremonies took place, the third bride pulled out at the last minute. The two weddings were civil ceremonies and Revd Devenish did not lead the services.
His diocese hasn't commentated but the Church of England said: "Christians believe marriage is a gift from God and should mirror the love that God has for all of us - love that remains true, faithful, protective and respectful."
Ancient church painting is 'Renaissance treasure'
Tue 21 Jul 2015
By Antony Bushfield

A mystery painting that has hung in a Lancashire church for hundreds of years has been revealed as a Renaissance treasure worth at least £100,000.
Experts from a TV show found the painting, at St John the Baptist Church in Tunstall, was the work of Francesco Montemezzano.
He was a "second-level" Italian artist and contemporary of some of the greats such as Tintoretto and Titian.
The painting depicts the aftermath of Christ's crucifixion.
BBC1's Fake Or Fortune programme investigated the original purchase of the painting which brought it to Tunstall, uncovering a complicated family web that ultimately led to the buyer being identified as Frederick Needham, who was a past vicar of St John's in the early 1800s.
PA Wire
Revd Mark Cannon, Fiona Bruce, art expert Philip Mould and churchwarden Jane Greenhalgh

The vicar of St John's, Revd Mark Cannon, and church warden Jane Greenhalgh were involved in the programme and were filmed showing presenters Fiona Bruce and art expert Philip Mould the uncleaned and unknown painting at the start of the show.
Revd Cannon said: "We were hopeful of discovering something about its history, how it got here and why it's in the church.
"We've been down some blind alleys but in the end what was neglected by us all at the back of the church turns out to be something quite special.
"It has been an exciting journey and in the end the value became less and less important - even though it is worth a lot of money, we are now focusing on using it for what it was intended for - as an object of devotion and reflection that will draw people to the church on many levels.
"The painting was given by a former vicar who obviously thought it would be an aid to devotion for his parishioners, so we hope it can do that again now."
PA Wire
 
The Archdeacon of Lancaster, the Ven Michael Everitt, said: "It was one of the most fascinating editions of Fake Or Fortune ever and, as well as featuring the beautiful painting, I was struck too how beautifully the programme showcased the wonderful part of our diocese where St John's is situated.

"I am delighted with the outcome and I thank Fiona, Philip and the rest of the BBC team as well as the vicar Mark, churchwarden Jane and all the parishioners for their hard work in solving the mystery of the painting.
"I am so pleased for the church that they can now name the artist of this stunning picture of Christ.
"Obviously the outcome has implications for the future, and the church, which has extensive security measures in place, has reinforced them with other measures which we can't discuss further for obvious reasons."

REVEALED: One in ten British jihadists fighting with ISIS are now DEAD
MORE than 60 Britons have been killed fighting alongside the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group in Syria and Iraq, shocking figures have revealed.
By REBECCA PERRING
PUBLISHED: 10:30, Wed, Jul 15, 2015 | UPDATED: 10:34, Wed, Jul 15, 2015
Ibrahim al-Mazwagi (L) and Talha Asmal (R)
The rising death toll means that nearly one in 10 of the estimated 700 British jihadists who have fled to war-torn Syria to join ISIS' brutal campaign have been killed or brought about their own death in suicide attacks. 

ISIS has suffered increasing losses since US-led airstrikes against the extramists were launched in the Middle East last year, with Kurdish and Shi'ite Muslim militias also taking the fight to the terror group on the ground.
The identities of many of the deceased British foreign fighters have emerged in social media reports with connections to the terror group.
But the number of Britons to have died fighting in the Middle East could even be higher, if those who have joined jihadists and Syrian rebel groups other than ISIS are counted.
It has also emerged that 43 women and girls are believed to have travelled from Britain to Syria in the past year to join jihadists.
There has been very fierce fighting in northern Syria in particular in which there is a good chance that a few Britons died as well
Charlie Winter, a senior researcher at the Quilliam Foundation
Scotland Yard revealed that almost one female per week had been reported missing by their families to police forces across the country in the past 12 months.

Charlie Winter, a senior researcher at the Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, said: "The battlefield in Iraq and Syria has really heated up in the last year in terms of what resistance Islamic State is facing as an organisation.
"It’s a combination of coalition airstrikes and offensives on the ground, but not necessarily just when Islamic State’s enemies are making incursions against it. It is also when Islamic State goes on an offensive.
"Just from a monitoring basis I’ve noticed a lot more reports coming through among jihadists that British fighters have died, be that in battle or suicide operations.
"It’s also worth noting that it’s not just Islamic State that these numbers are derived from, and there has been very fierce fighting in northern Syria in particular in which there is a good chance that a few Britons died as well."
The disclosures, as reported by the Daily Telegraph, come as Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to call a House of Commons vote this autumn on extending Britain's a bombing campaign against the terror group to Syria as well as Iraq.
The first Briton killed fighting in Syria was named as Ibrahim al-Mazwagi, 21, from north London, who died in October 2013.
Just last month, Talha Asmal, 16, was named as Britain's youngest suicide bomber after he blew himself up for the terror group in an attack against Iraqi fighters. 
The teenager, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, is thought to have detonated a vehicle fitted with explosives. 
Hundreds of Britons are understood to have travelled to Syria to fight alongside ISIS. 
But half of the estimated 700 British jihadists are now feared to be have returned, prompting concerns some will return and use their training and experience to plan similar attacks in the UK. 
Scotland Yard revealed last week that the UK faced its biggest threat since 9/11 with 338 terror-related arrests last year.
And yesterday police arrested three men suspected of plotting an Al Qaeda-inspired terror attack on British soil.
Police said the "arrests and searches are part of an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism".

Guns must not be sold to oppressive nations, says Archbishop of Canterbury
Fri 17 Jul 2015
By Desmond Busteed
The Archbishop of Canterbury has urged the Government not to sell guns to countries which "oppress" religious freedom.

The Most Rev Justin Welby told the Lords that religious freedom was currently "threatened on a global scale".
He said attacks on religious freedom were linked to many factors including economic circumstances, sociology and history.
"If we want to defend religious freedom around the world - and the freedom to have no religion - don't sell people guns who oppress religious freedom.
"Don't launder their money. Restrict trade to them and confine the way we deal with them - and above all speak frankly and openly, naming them for what they are."
In a debate on the need to uphold religious freedom and belief at a time of growing world strife, the Archbishop said: "Where a state claims the ultimate right of oppressing religious freedom, it stops the last and the strongest barrier against tyranny."
From the beginning of time, the world had needed religious freedom as a "global defence of freedom," he said.
The Archbishop added there were many examples of "horrific situations" around the world where people were persecuted for their religion or for their absence of religion.
"I myself have witnessed such persecution, in its rawest forms, during my visits to the 37 other provinces of the Anglican Communion. Almost half of these provinces are living under persecution. They fear for their lives every day."

Jewish Man Who Fled Nazis Funds Rescue of 2,000 Christians From ISIS to Repay ‘Debt’
JULY 14, 2015 3:52 PM
A Jewish man in the U.K. is funding the rescue of up to 2,000 Christian families from Islamic State terrorists in Syria and Iraq to show his gratitude for the Christians who saved him from Nazi persecution, The Independent reported on Tuesday.

The resettlement project, named Operation Safe Haven, last week arranged the flight of 150 Syrian Christians to Poland, where they will seek refugee. The group aims to provide 12-18 months of paid support to the refugees, according to The Independent.
The man behind the project is Lord Weidenfeld, 94, a former publisher who said he has “a debt to repay” to Christians because they provided him as a child with food and clothing, and helped him reach Britain after he fled Nazi-occupied Austria. In 1938, a year before the start of World War II, he arrived in Britain by train as part of the Kindertransport rescue effort that brought thousands of Jewish refugee children to the U.K.
“I had a debt to repay. It applies to so many young people who were on the Kindertransports,” he said. “It was Quakers and other Christian denominations who brought those children to England.”
“It was a very high-minded operation and we Jews should also be thankful and do something for the endangered Christians,” he added.
Lord Weidenfeld said he hopes to repeat the work of Sir Nicholas Winton, who organized Kindertransport trains that saved 669 youths from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. The famed humanitarian died on July 1.
Operation Safe Haven has faced criticism for its exclusion of Muslims, who have also been persecuted and forced from their homes by ISIS.
Lord Weidenfeld defended the project’s focus on Christians saying, “I can’t save the world, but there is a very specific possibility on the Christian side. Let others do what they like for the Muslims.”

Watch One Brave Man
One brave Jewish man has the courage to defend Israel as anti-Israel protesters march past. 
This is such an important video for supporters of Israel to watch. It’s clear that the motivation behind the demonstrations against Israel is not about the pursuit of human rights. It’s about the hatred of Jews.

We need to ask ourselves why this one brave Jew was the ONLY supporter of Israel at the event. It’s certainly not easy to defend Israel, especially when placing oneself at risk. But there are always other ways, like SHARING this video.

The moment an anti-Israel thug stole an Israeli flag from a British peace activist. Also caught on film is the vile antisemitism of one of the anti-Israel protesters as he tries to claim "white Jews" rule the world. There was no counter protest from any of the UK's Zionist or Jewish organisations. If it wasn't for this one IAM activist there would have been no counter protest at all....

British Mosques and Imams Refuse to Condemn the Islamic State (ISIS)
Egypt is monitoring its mosques; the US, Europe, Canada, Australia should do the same. Our organization, AFDI, issued an 18-point platform in defense of freedom years ago.

Two key points were:
— AFDI calls for immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in non-Muslim nations illegal.
— AFDI calls for surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed.

What would it take to convince a genuinely peaceful person to commit mass murder?
There is a a very definite mindset of jihad learned in the mosques, and nothing is being done to counter it.
Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?
Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US or UK mosques, even as thousands of young Muslims from the West have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State.
If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs expunging or at the very least vocally opposing against these teachings of islam.
This article demands “British Muslim parents must challenge mosques who refuse to condemn ISIS attacks.” It’s their belief system — that is never going to happen. The government must “challenge” them and close those mosques. 49% of UK Muslims endorse hate preachers; close to 30% support Charlie Hebdo execution 40% of British Muslims want sharia law in Britain and 20% have sympathy with the “feelings and motives” of the suicide bombers who attacked London on July 7. These people are going to police the mosques?
“British Muslim parents must challenge mosques who refuse to condemn ISIS attacks, says Sajid Javid,” By Matt Chorley, Political Editor for MailOnline, July 13, 2015 (thanks to Religion of Peace):
Business Secretary says Imams who condone attacks must be questioned
Warns ‘non-violent extremists’ were making it easier for terrorists to recruit
Most senior elected Muslim in UK condemns ‘poisonous ideology’ of ISIS

British Muslims must do more to take on extremist views, including challenging Imams who refuse to condemn ISIS attacks, Sajid Javid said today.
The Business Secretary, the most senior elected Muslim in the UK, warned that ‘non-violent extremists’ were making it easier for terrorists to recruit British children to their cause.
He said parents should be willing to question the motives of Imams if they are concerned about the influence of mosques on their children.
The call comes after David Cameron said too many British Muslims ‘quietly condone’ extremism.
Ministers are urging families to speak out against the ‘poisonous ideology’ driving hundreds of young people to wage jihad for ISIS.
Parents have been told to stop blaming police and the security services for failing to prevent British teenagers heading to Syria.
Instead, they have been urged to report their children to the authorities if they are concerned they are at risk of being radicalised.
Mr Javid said British Muslims must do more to tackle the ideology behind ISIS, and condemn terror atrocities like the massacre in Tunisia which left 30 Britons dead.
He told BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show: ‘If you are a Muslim parent and you send your children to a mosque, if the Imam in that mosque hasn’t condemned what happened in Tunisia, for example, you should be asking yourself, ‘why hasn’t he done that, what’s stopped him from doing that?’
‘These are the kind of questions Muslims should be asking themselves because what’s happening is a peaceful, compassionate religion has been taken and twisted by this poisonous ideology and that cannot be allowed to stand.’
Mr Javid was born in Rochdale, Lancashire to a a bus driver father from Pakistan and grew up in Bristol.
He stressed that there was no barrier to being both a Muslim and a patriotic Briton.
‘It is perfectly possible to be both and there are millions of Muslims who do that every single day.’
javid
But he said the problems faced by the Muslim community had changed: ‘When I was growing up as a young Muslim in Britain, the extremist ideology that you see today just didn’t seem to be around, it didn’t seem to be an issue.
‘Something has clearly changed over a number of years. I think the Prime Minister is right when he talks about if we are really going to combat extremism and terrorism then we have got to combat the ideology. It’s not about just military might.
If we are really going to combat extremism and terrorism then we have got to combat the ideology
Business Secretary Sajid Javid
‘I do think there are too many people – let’s call them non-violent extremists – that feed this ideology. They may not agree with the terrorism … but they might agree with the narrative.

‘We have got to realise the damage that they are doing. They are, in that case, it’s like taking a young person to the door of the terrorist.
‘Then you make the terrorist’s job of recruitment a lot easier because then they just have to beckon them in.
‘I think all people, Muslims included – I guess especially Muslims – they have to talk to these people, let’s say the non-violent extremists, and say ‘what you are doing, spreading this ideology, you are hurting us, you are hurting yourselves ultimately, it must stop’.
‘I think all people, but including British Muslims and others, have to do more to combat this poisonous ideology.’
Mr Javid said British Muslims must do more to tackle the ideology behind ISIS, and condemn terror atrocities like the massacre in Tunisia which left 30 Britons dead

Revealed: Wealthy UK charity exists solely to fund the Muslim Brotherhood 
More “moderates” turn out to be “extremists.” The Brotherhood’s stated goal, according to a captured internal document, is “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.” The British government doesn’t mind that at all: “No formal investigation has been launched.”
“Revealed: The Muslim Brotherhood’s British Property Portfolio Bankrolling Global Islamism,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, July 10, 2015:

A registered charity with an £8.5million property portfolio in the UK, whose leaders have alleged links to al-Qaeda, Hamas and even the terrorists behind 9/11, has been revealed to exist solely to fund international Islamist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. The trust owns 47 student flats in Leeds and the student rents have been unwittingly bankrolling political Islam in Europe for years.
The Leicestershire-based Europe Trust, which was created in 1996 with the backing of Gulf donors, claims to be “a non-political, non-profit making and independent, charitable organisation” on its website, which seeks to “contribute to a harmonious society where equal opportunity and quality of life are a reality for everyone” by supporting “the advancement of the Islamic religion.”
However, it sends funds to the Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe (FIOE), identified as the Brotherhood’s unofficial representative network on the Continent by experts; the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), a member FIOE identified as “the Brotherhood’s representative in the UK” by a government minister in 2010, and a network of Arabic-language religious schools attended by one of Lee Rigby’s murders.
The activities of the trust and the unofficial network of Brotherhood-linked organisations it funds were exposed in an investigation by Andrew Norfolk in The Times.
Former head of the FIOE and MAB, who has therefore been one of the most senior Islamists in Europe, Dr. al-Rawi, is the current President and a former trustee of Europe Trust. The structural engineer, 67, was born in Iraq but came to the UK in 1975. He is a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR), funded by the FIOE which promotes it as the “chief religious authority for Muslims throughout Europe”.
ECFR chairman, Yusuf al-Qaradawi (pictured above), regarded as the Brotherhood’s supreme religious authority, has praised Hitler for “put[ing the Jews] in their place” and has issued fatwas condoning suicide bombings, attacks on Israeli children, FGM, wife-beating, and stoning homosexuals to death.
Dr. al-Rawi told The Times he does not accept the word Islamist and denied being a member of the Brotherhood. When they asked if he supported the Brotherhood’s ideology, he said he was “a Muslim.”
The trustees of the registered charity listed by The Times have links to just about all of the most feared and violent terrorist organizations on the planet. They include:
A man who ran Lajnat al-Dawa al-Islamiya (LDI), a Kuwaiti organization banned by the UN because of links with al-Qaeda, whose Pakistan branch was headed up by the brother of the mastermind behind 9/11.
Senior figures in “aid agencies” banned in Israel for being part of a wider group “created by Hamas to transfer funds to… terrorist,” according to the American government.
The previous head of the Islamic Society of Germany; investigated but not prosecuted by German police for indirectly funding al-Qaeda. He was also sentenced to death last month in Egypt for an alleged plotting with Brotherhood leaders.
An imam from Palestine jailed for five months in 2001 because of a secret “circumcision clinic” operating from his mosque Italian for the purposes mutilating young girls.
A Syrian businessman and leader of the Brotherhood in Turkey who is said to have ties with the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is a supporter.
The Brotherhood operates as covertly as possible in Europe. It has no official organization, never uses its menacing official logo, and instead represents itself via a network of shady charities, think tanks, educational institutions and Muslim-interest groups….

The Times reports to have sent all the information they gathered regarding the Europe Trust to the Charity Commission. A spokeswoman told them it would be assessed “to establish whether it gives rise to regulatory concern”. No formal investigation has been launched.
(Despite its members supporting Hamas and the killing of Israeli civilians and British and American troops in Iraq, the Brotherhood publicly condemns acts of terrorism in non-Muslim countries and there is no suggestion that Europe Trust is funding terrorism.)

Government's planning reforms from 'Thatcher era', says Christian environmental group
Fri 10 Jul 2015
By Desmond Busteed
A Christian environmental group has launched a furious attack on the government, over its proposals to relax planning laws on brownfield sites in England, to speed up home-building.

A Rocha UK has branded the reforms as regressive, suggesting they bring environmental policy 'back to the Thatcher era'.
Developers will automatically be given permission to build on suitable disused industrial land under major reforms to boost housebuilding, George Osborne has announced.
More derelict brownfield plots could also be seized for development through beefed up compulsory purchase powers under the plan unveiled by the Chancellor.
Major infrastructure projects that include new housing will be fast tracked and Whitehall will step in if councils fail to act to meet local housing demands.
However, the government has said there is no need to build on green belt land, despite environmentalist suggesting it may be the more radical option, while some developers believe the amount of brown field land is too limited to properly address the housing crisis.
"The challenge is the terms are misleading, greenfield doesn't necessarily mean it's of significant value to the wildlife or the community, it just means that ... it is a space that is green and can include some low-grade agricultural land," said spokesman Andy Lester.
'Brown field' affectively means it's had an alternative use before, and therefore it's being put back into constructive use, but our wildlife is getting squeezed out.
So, our road verges now ironically are probably the best places for wild flowers ... and our 'brown field' sites can sometimes be fantastic for wildlife", added Mr Lester.
So treating it with such a broad brush approach is dangerous and also suggesting that somehow by protecting the 'green field' site we're protecting peoples interests is misleading.
The Church of England is currently debating whether to dump fossil fuels from its £6.1bn fund at its final General Synod of 2015, taking place in York

Tunisia Massacre: Funeral for Christian couple
Fri 10 Jul 2015
By Marcus Jones
The funeral of a Christian couple killed in last month's shootings in Tunisia has taken place.

Jim and Ann McQuire, from Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire in Scotland were among 38 people killed by a gunman in the holiday resort of Sousse on Friday June 26.

Speaking on Premier's News Hour last week, Rt Revd Dr Angus Morrison, Moderator of the Church of Scotland General Assembly paid tribute to the couple.

He said: "Jim and Ann were much loved and esteemed members of our parish church in Cumbernauld at Abronhill. Jim was captain at the Boys Brigade and they were both very active in the life of the church."

Abronhill Parish Church will host the service after previously holding prayer gatherings to help the community deal with their deaths.

Speaking ahead of the service, Revd Joyce Keyes said: "The church has been inundated with messages and expressions of support in the form of flowers, cards, emails, prayers and words of comfort both for the McQuire family and for the church community.

"Many people have been touched by the tragic deaths of people enjoying their holiday, even more so when they include folks you know - people from your own community."

A book of condolence at the church, which has already been signed by hundreds of people, is expected to remain open until after the funeral service.

Meanwhile. thousands of British holidaymakers are being evacuated from Tunisia after the UK government warned a second terror attack was 'highly likely'.

But some of those who've come back say they are disappointed they've had to cut their holiday short.

Tunisia Beach Jihadi “Radicalized” in London
This should come as a surprise to absolutely no one.

UK’s Cameron said, “I wish the BBC would stop calling it ‘Islamic State’ because it is not an Islamic state.”
As if ….. the Tunisian was inspired by  different jihadi group. Fourteen years after 9/11, Western leaders are still defaulting to the religion of peace myth. It’s an abject failure. Look where their denial has gotten us.
Tunisia attack: gunman’s links to Britain
Seifeddine Rezgui’s terror group broke off from al-Qaeda arm founded by a Tunisian living in London

By Camilla Turner, The Telegraph, June 30, 2015 (thanks to Nicole)
The gunman who massacred British tourists on the beach in Sousse was inspired by a fanatic who ran a terror network from London.
Seifeddine Rezgui’s terror group is believed to be Ajnad al-Khilafah. It grew out of Ansar al-Sharia, a hardline Salafi group whose Tunisian branch was founded by Saifallah Ben Hassine.
Ben Hassine, 49, arrived in Britain in the late 1990s and became a follower of the al-Qaeda cleric, Abu Qatada, who was then also based in London.
High Court papers relating to a control order placed on a British-based suspect state Ben Hassine used London as his base for founding and running the “Tunisian Fighting Group” from 2000 onwards.
The network had links to Al Qaeda and, according to the papers, “aimed to recruit new members and send them to Afghanistan for training”.
The documents add that: “Abu Qatada appears as a watermark running through the whole of this case as being the mastermind.”
Abu Qatada was eventually deported from the UK after a lengthy legal battle (AP)
Ben Hassine is thought to have spent three years in London, and by 2011 he established Ansar al-Sharia, the group which Rezgui’s family say are to blame for his radicalisation.
Rezgui’s family say he was indoctrinated while studying for a master’s degree in Kairouan, a town 35 miles from Sousse which is a hub for Ansar al-Sharia.
Ali Al-Rezgui, uncle of gunman Seifeddine Rezgui
The leader of Kairouan’s great mosque said Ansar al-Sharia was among the most likely groups to have groomed Rezgui.
The terror organisation, which was behind a suicide attack at another beach resort in Sousse two years ago, has since divided between support for al-Qaeda and for the rival Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/david-cameron/11704576/David-Cameron-We-must-be-intolerant-of-Isil-intolerance.html

Ben Hassine remained close to Abu Qatada, who was deported from Britain in 2013 after a lengthy legal battle.
In January last year, Abu Qatada wrote in a letter published online that Ben Hassine “is among the best of those I have known in intellect” and “the most knowledgeable of people of my intentions … for he was the closest of people to me”.

Justin Welby 'deeply concerned' over redefinition of marriage
The Archbishop of Canterbury's expressed "deep concern" following the US Episcopal Church's decision to change the definition of marriage in the canons so that any reference to marriage as between a man and a woman is removed.
Tue 30 Jun 2015
By Marcus Jones
The Archbishop of Canterbury's expressed "deep concern" following the US Episcopal Church's decision to change the definition of marriage in the canons so that any reference to marriage as between a man and a woman is removed.

The move by bishops will allow Anglican churches in the US to use new liturgy to marry same sex couples, however no priest will be forced to perform the ceremonies.
The US Episcopal Church has seen big divisions over issues of gender and sexuality and in recent years they have led to a split and the formation of the new Anglican Church in North America.
Most Revd Justin Welby is currently overseeing on-going conversations on the issues of sexuality and marriage within the Church of England in light of the government's decision to legalise same sex marriage in 2014.
In response to the change in the US, a statement from Lambeth Palace said: "While recognising the prerogative of The Episcopal Church to address issues appropriate to its own context, Archbishop Justin Welby said that its decision will cause distress for some and have ramifications for the Anglican Communion as a whole, as well as for its ecumenical and interfaith relationships.
"At a time of such suffering around the world, he stated that this was a moment for the church to be looking outwards. We continue to mourn with all those who are grieving loved ones and caring for the injured from the terrorist attacks in Sousse, Kuwait and Lyons, and from the racist attacks in Charleston.
"He urges prayer for the life of the Anglican Communion; for a space for the strengthening of the interdependent relationships between provinces, so that in the face of diversity and disagreement, Anglicans may be a force for peace and seek to respond to the Lord Jesus' prayer that "they may be one so that the world may believe" (John 17: 21)."

Don’t let your love of the underdog blind you to Hamas
Israel has the bad luck of being the stronger side in the 
Israeli-Palestinian conflict
Yair Lapid
Last updated at 12:01AM, June 22 2015
I like Britain. In the early 1960s I spent the first three years of my life here. My memories are of the taste of rain, dogs barking in the park and the smell of Dove soap.
As an adult, I still feel affection for the country. But as an Israeli, in the past years I’ve suffered from one of the British traits I like the most: support for the underdog.
You always favour the underdog — any underdog. They seem to be right because they are weak, and in the best tradition of British gallantry you want to protect them and hit the stronger party over the head with your umbrella.
The strong, in our case, is Israel. We have the bad luck of being the stronger side in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which causes many in Britain to prefer the other side. They like themselves much more when they stand by the weak Palestinians and miss the fact that being weak is not the same as being just. Israel’s military strength protects a fighting democracy. During Operation Protective Edge last summer, I was one of eight members of Israel’s security cabinet. It’s amazing how many hours we spent discussing how to limit civilian casualties. I can’t count how many air strikes were cancelled because satellites photographed unarmed people in the vicinity.
And still, more Palestinians were killed than Israelis. Why? Because we’re the stronger force, and we have the technology which allows us to protect ourselves. The Palestinians have squeezed every last drop out of being the underdog. While asking for your support, they fired mortar shells directly at children in their kindergartens, placed snipers in mosques and UN schools, fired rockets at Israel from hospitals and used civilians as human shields.
Why does the world believe them? Because no one who grew up in the western world can truly believe the idea that someone is willing — in cold blood — to get his own children killed just for a grisly photograph on the front pages. That’s not the behaviour of an underdog. But that’s how Hamas operates.
Support for the underdog is being translated into support for boycotts of Israel. Most people don’t know that behind the campaign is the most distorted version of Islam, hidden by heavy financial backing from Iran and the Gulf States. Maybe now is the time for Britain to act according to the second of the great British traditions: fair play.

Muslim terror suspect doesn’t have to wear electronic tag because he thinks it’s a bomb
The extraordinary accommodation and capitulation to Islamic supremacism is astonishing. What other enemy, terrorists, or criminal would the West surrender to in this way? We are under siege by devout supremacists who are waging a holy war to destroy us and our freedoms. And yet we continue to bend and grovel to the most extreme ideology on the face of the earth — to what end?

“The terror suspect who doesn’t have to wear electronic tag because he thinks it’s a bomb: Tracker ‘breaches imam’s human rights,'” The Daily Mail, June 19, 2015 (thanks to Armaros):
Judge rules the Somalian-born preacher has mental health problems
Wearing the electronic device was making him ‘delusional’
Tories have used the ruling to back the scrapping of Human Rights Act
Refugee is suspected of radicalising vulnerable young Europeans  

By James Slack, Home Affairs Editor for the Daily Mail
Tagged: A judge has ruled that a terror suspect does not have to wear his electronic tag, after he became convinved [sic] that MI5 had put a bomb inside it. The man’s mental health problems made him delusional according to the judge

A terror suspect last night won a human rights case to have his tag removed – because he thinks MI5 has put a bomb inside
A judge said the dangerous preacher of hate has mental health problems, and wearing the electronic monitoring device was making him ‘delusional’.

He ruled this amounted to a breach of Article 3 of the Human Rights Act, which is meant to prohibit torture.
As a result, the Somalian-born fanatic will be free to walk the streets untagged despite still being rated a grave threat to the public.
The judge also lifted a ban on the imam’s children having an iPad or laptop – intended to stop him poisoning minds on the internet – because it was stopping them from making friends as well as affecting their education.
The ‘absurd’ case sparked fury at Westminster, with Tories saying it showed why the Human Rights Act must be scrapped.
The man, a supporter of the Al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab terror group who is known only as DD, was placed under a T-Pim terrorism prevention order almost two years ago. DD is one of only two terror suspects under a T-Pim.
The refugee is suspected of radicalising and recruiting vulnerable young people from Europe and making a powerful contribution to propaganda campaigns for al Shabaab which is engaged in a jihadist mission in Somalia and around east Africa.
The purpose of the tag was to allow the police and security services to monitor his movements and enforce restrictions on where he can go. He is considered such a threat he is banned from parts of Birmingham and Leicester.
But Mr Justice Collins ruled that requiring the 39-year-old to continue wearing the ankle tag now breached his human rights because of a worsening mental illness and delusional thoughts.
The judge said there was medical evidence that DD had psychotic and unusual beliefs that the tag was there to punish him. In particular, he believed it contained a camera and a bomb, and voices and noises emanated from it.
Two doctors accepted that DD was not exaggerating his symptoms. There was no doubt that the tag might produce a further deterioration and result in serious self-harm, Mr Justice Collins ruled.
Terror suspect: A member of Somalia’s al Shabaab militant group sits during a public demonstration in February 2012 to announce their integration with al Qaeda, in Elasha, south of the capital Mogadishu, Somalia. The preacher involved in the case is a supporter of the al-Qaeda-linked al Shabaab terror group, and is suspected of radicalising and recruiting vulnerable young Europeans to join the troops
But he refused to lift the T-Pim itself. Jonathan Hall QC, representing the Home Secretary, said the advice from MI5 was that the T-Pim had ‘significantly reduced DD’s ability to spread propaganda, radicalise, recruit and fundraise’.
Conservative MP Peter Bone said the case showed why the Tories need to get on with scrapping the Human Rights Act and replacing it with a British Bill of Rights.
He told the Mail: ‘It just beggars belief. This man is so dangerous we have to monitor him – but we cannot monitor him with a tag which is regularly fitted on minor criminals?
‘The idea this is something that amounts to torture is completely absurd.’
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘We are disappointed with the verdict of the court that certain restrictions to which the individual was subject should be removed.
‘But the court found there was sufficient evidence to support the national security case to impose and keep in place a T-Pim notice. Restrictions on this individual’s activities to protect the public remain in place.’

UK: Muslim family of 12 leaves to join Jihad in Syria 
Islamic apologists and western elites blame “charismatic recruiters” who are “brainwashing” Muslims. Let me ask you something: could any leader convince you to behead, rape, enslave and slaughter?

UK Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe warned: “Today’s terrorist may …. very well also be a lone disaffected youth radicalised by extremist material on his home computer.” Disaffected “doctors,” “lawyers,” “prep school” and “private school students”  radicalized by “extremist material”? Extremist material like what — the Qur’an? Hadith? Sira?
There are no lone wolves in the jihad war. There are millions of Muslim soldiers all over the world all following the same playbook – the Quran – and the same ideology – Islam.
No matter how many times the nonsense is disproved, they trot out the well-worn disaffected myth.

Apparently this entire family was …. disaffected. What insulting hogwash. It’s religious fervor. Pious slaughter in the cause of Islam.
“Three British sisters feared to have gone to Syria to join brother,” By Tom Whitehead, The Telegraph, 15 Jun 2015 (thanks to TMI)
The sisters and their children, aged between three and 15, were due back in the UK on Thursday

Three British sisters are feared to have gone to Syria with their nine children, one as young as three, to join their brother fighting there.
The family, from Bradford, disappeared after first going to Saudi Arabia on an Islamic pilgrimage but are believed to have then flown to Turkey and have not been heard of in a week.
Their distraught husbands fear the childrens’ lives are now in danger.
Police also faced questions after reports the sisters were under watch prior to vanishing.
It came as police chiefs and senior politicians warned how easy people are being fooled by Isil propaganda and lured to the war torn country
It is feared “charismatic recruiters” are “brainwashing” people online as community leaders urged parents and the public to help root out the groomers.
In the most alarming case to date, siblings Khadija Dawood, 30, Sugra Dawood, 34, and Zohra Dawood, 33, are believed to have followed their brother to Syria.
They took with them their nine children, five year-old Muhammad Haseeb, Maryam Siddiqui, seven, Ismaeel Iqbal, three, Mariya Iqbal, five, Zaynab Iqbal, eight, Ibrahim Iqbal, 14, Junaid Ahmed Iqbal, 15, Haafiyah Binte Zubair, eight, and five-year-old Nurah Binte Zubair.
Family chart of missing Dawood family
A lawyer acting for their devastated husbands issued a desperate appeal for their return.
Balaal Khan said: “They are concerned that their children’s lives are in danger.
“The concern is for the well-being and safety of the children. The fathers are distraught, they feel helpless and they don’t now what to do. They want the children out of harm’s way.”
The extended family went to Saudi Arabia on May 28 for a pilgrimage.
They were due to return to the UK on June 11 but it is believed they, instead, boarded a flight on June 9 from Madina to Istanbul in Turkey, which is a well trodden destination to get in to Syria.
Their relatives have now heard from their in almost a week and their Facebook sites and other social media has not been updated.
It is believed the trio’s brother is already in Syria fighting with extremists and it is feared the sisters have gone to find him.
Mr Khan said: “One of the possibilities is they travelled to Turkey to travel to Syria. The suspicion, and main concern, is that the women have taken their children to Syria.”
He said police were notified five or six days ago but were limited in what they could do.
However, a family friend claimed the sisters had been under “extensive police surveillance”, according to Channel 4 News.

The siblings’father was unavailable for comment but local resident Mohammed Khan, 35, said he was disabled and in ill health.
“He has his son and three daughters who would look after him and now they’ve gone. It’s terrible,” he said.
“I knew the brother had gone away about a year or so. So now the daughters have gone too he has no one.”
A former neighbour added: “They were a big family and you never had any trouble from them. They were just nice and normal.
“I’m just so shocked to hear the news. Three women and nine children – it’s unbelievable.”
West Yorkshire Police is investigating as a missing persons case and was “working extensively with authorities overseas to try and locate them”.
Assistant Chief Constable Russ Foster said: “We are extremely concerned for the safety of the family and would urge anyone with information to come forward and speak to us.
“Our priority is for their safe return; their families are gravely worried about them and want them home. One of our primary concerns is the safety and welfare of the young children.”
The growing influence of terror groups in attracting youngsters to their cause has caused huge alarm among the security services and Government in a series of new developments.
Talha Asmal, 17, was this week named as Britain’s youngest suicide bomber after blowing himself up for Isil in an attack against Iraqi forces.
• In depth: Britain’s youngest suicide bomber
And Thomas Evans, 25, is believed to have died fighting for al-Shabaab in Kenya.
The typical age range for Britons joining jihad has fallen from around 25 to 35 during the Afghanistan War to 14 to 26 now.
And, for the first time, significant numbers of Muslim women and young girls in the West are joining the conflict too.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, warned: “Today’s terrorist may of course be a hardened member of an organised terrorist ‘cell’, but may very well also be a lone disaffected youth radicalised by extremist material on his home computer.
“Some of those travelling to Syria are fulfilling a long-standing Jihadi ambition. But others who travel to Syria are youngsters fooled by propaganda – out of their depth and running out of time. The police must find a way to deal with both.”
• Battle-hardened and vengeful, 300 jihadists are back in Britain
• Parents of three runaway British ‘jihadi’ brides beg them to come home

On Mr Asmal’s death, David Cameron’s official spokeswoman said it “underlines the need to do all we can to prevent young people being radicalised and, if they are thinking of travelling, to stop them from doing so”.
Haras Rafiq, managing director of the Quilliam Foundation counter-extremism think-tank, said: “What happens is that they are driven to charismatic recruiters either offline or online and then they find a solution to their problems … which has a theological justification under it.
“Isis is almost like a corporate entity, this is 21st century jihad and getting their message out to people is very important to them.”

British Muslim Killed Waging Jihad in Kenya
Another British Muslim waging jihad in the cause of Allah and Islamic supremacism. Why is it that we never hear of Muslims going to Africa or the Middle East to fight against the Islamic State?


How did this “misunderstanding” of Islam become so widespread? And why do devout Muslim converts understand Islam in exactly this same way?  It is clear the people “misunderstanding” jihad and sharia are the elites and Islamic apologists denying the theological reality. Why are so many more British, French, German, American, Canadian, Australian, etc. Muslims joining the Islamic State and now al Shabaab?

The mother of this British convert, who died fighting with al Shabaab in Kenya, said her son had called her “and told us he was in Somalia and had joined al Shabaab, and not to worry,” “In all honesty, I didn’t know what al Shabaab was.” Ignorance will destroy us. This is a consequence of a media that scrubs and whitewashes the motive behind this bloody war. That’s why we do the work we do — to educate, educate, educate uninformed free people in what is the gravest threat to our freedom.
Where are the Muslim leaders and imams in Western countries teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it? 

Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as increasing numbers of young Muslims from the West have gone to wage jihad. 
If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against this view of Islam and expunge Islamic text and teachings that call for violent jihad.
“Briton Killed’ Fighting For Al Shabaab In Kenya,” , SKY News, UK, Monday 15 June 2015
The Foreign Office says it is trying to confirm reports Thomas Evans died when al Shabaab militants attacked a Kenyan army base.
INS News Agency Ltd.. 15/06/2015
Collect picture of Thomas Evans, British man who joined Somalian terror group Al-Shabaab and was today/yesterday (Mon) believed to have been killed in battle.
Kenyan army said the Islam convert was thought to have been killed in battle fighting in Somalia with terrorist group al-Shabaab.

Thomas Evans, 25, turned to Islam in 2009
A British jihadist who left the UK to join the terror group al Shabaab is believed to have been killed in an attack on a Kenyan army base.
The British embassy in Nairobi said it is “seeking to confirm reports” Thomas Evans died on Sunday when militants from al Qaeda’s Somalia affiliate attacked the base in Baure, close to the border with Somalia.
Two Kenyan soldiers were killed and at least 15 Shabaab fighters, including two “Caucasians”, according to Kenyan defence officials.
Kenya Defence Forces spokesman Colonel David Obonyo said: “All the available data, including photographs, points to it being Thomas Evans.
“There is an investigation going on with forensics and DNA to confirm his identity.”
Video: Continuing Threat From Al Shabaab


A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We are aware of reports of the death of a British national in Kenya. We are not able to confirm them at this time.”
In a statement, Mrs Evans said: “My son, Michael and I, are currently awaiting official confirmation regarding the death of my son Thomas.
“We cannot comment any further at this time and request the press respect our privacy.”
If confirmed, Evans’ death would be the first reported case of a British Islamist militant being killed on Kenyan soil.
The Muslim convert, who is also known as Abdul Hakim, is reported to have travelled to Somalia in 2011 to join al Shabaab.
The 25-year-old’s family live in Buckinghamshire.
Earlier this year, his mother spoke of her shock over her son going to fight with the militants.
Speaking to the Home Affairs Select Committee, Sally Evans said her son was a “normal teenage lad” before turning to Islam in 2009.
Police lost track of Thomas in 2011, and in January 2012 he called his family to say he had joined the terror group.
“He rang up then and told us he was in Somalia and had joined al Shabaab, and not to worry,” Mrs Evans said.
“In all honesty, I didn’t know what al Shabaab was.”
When she realised that her son had joined a terror group and might be prepared to become a suicide bomber, Mrs Evans said it was the “biggest shock in the world”.
Sunday’s attacks saw dozens of gunmen raid a military base and briefly take over a village in Lamu County.
Officials said a major security operation was under way to pursue the attackers.
Al Shabaab is increasingly targeting Kenya after battling for years to overthrow the Somali government.
Four gunmen from the group killed at least 148 people, most of them students, at a university in Garissa in April.
In September 2013, al Shabaab gunmen killed at least 67 people in an assault on the Westgate shopping mall in the capital Nairobi.
The group was once a magnet for foreign volunteers, but their capacity to recruit has been diminished by the rise of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

At the weekend it was revealed a British teenager, Talha Asmal, is believed to have carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq after joining Islamic State.

Calls for no more Christian assemblies
Mon 15 Jun 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Schools should no longer be required to hold Christian assemblies, according to a former education secretary.

Charles Clarke, education secretary 2002-2004 says that assemblies should be left up to governing bodies and schools should publish a statement on how they promote moral and spiritual education.
According to The Times Mr Clarke and a Lancaster University academic call for a change on this issue in a pamphlet.
They stress that a religious and faith syllabus should be created on a national level and calls for admission rules to be tighter for churches and other faith schools.
Mr Clarke added that schools should hold daily acts of collective worship formed of a "broadly Christian character" and parents should be able to choose if they want to withdraw their children.
He argued that the era of daily worship is a "long gone" idea.

New evidence suggests church had pivotal role in Magna Carta
Sun 14 Jun 2015
By Desmond Busteed
New research into the Magna Carta has revealed the church may have had a more influential role in the development of the famous charter than previously thought.

Two days of national celebrations are under way to commemorate 800 years since the singing of the failed treaty between the 'tyrannical' King John and his rebellious barons, which turned into a decisive moment for English democracy and justice.
According to the Guardian, researchers from the University of East Anglia and King's College London's Magna Carta Project think the Lincoln charter was written by a religious scribe working for the Bishop of Lincoln, while the Salisbury charter was done by a scribe working for the Dean and Chapter of Salisbury.
Scholars believe they have uncovered evidence that proves the scribes were working outside the court, meaning the famous Runnymede deal was backed by England's bishops, as much as by the rebel barons whom King John was hoping to appease.
"To have found and identified the work of these scribes... is the equivalent of finding needles in a very large haystack," said medieval history professor Nicholas Vincent, principal investigator on the project. "But it also has important historical implications."
"King John had no real intention that the charter be either publicised or enforced. It was the bishops, instead, who insisted that it be distributed to the country at large and thereafter who preserved it in their cathedral archives," said Vincent.
"We now find at least two cathedral churches, Lincoln and Salisbury, each producing its own Magna Carta, supplying the time, the scribe and the initiative to get the document copied.
"Bizarrely enough, Magna Carta is the product of a situation far closer to that which elsewhere in today's world we might associate with the enemies of modern liberal democracy, with Sharia law or with those systems in which church and state are indistinguishable."
Four original charters bearing the Magna Carta text are known to have survived. Two of these 1215 charters are held at the British Library, one is at Lincoln cathedral and one at Salisbury cathedral. All four have Unesco World Heritage status.

Internet churches encourage worshippers
Mon 15 Jun 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Churches in the United States (U.S) are investing in new technology after the Christian population in the country has been reported to be declining.

One church in Atlanta, Impact Church, has invested in screens and stage lights as well as updating their services.
Pastor Olu Brown even spoke of social media in his address: "The Israelites spread this bad report on Twitter around the land, and it blew up on Facebook," according to the Washington Post.
Hundreds of worshippers stream services online and watch videos after they are posted on social media websites.
Andre Barnes, technology director at Impact Church, said: "There's a massive church here in Atlanta, and one of their video producers said they were asked to look at our church for inspiration."
He has his own technology team, creating social media posts and monitoring streaming.
"We operate, and have to operate, as a business, but our bottom line is people," he said.
Maxine Fears, logistics director at Impact Church added that there are multiple ways to donate to Impact Church, "You can mail it in; you can PayPal; you can also use the kiosks. We have kiosks throughout."
"The pastors requested that we keep ESPN over the urinals," said Elvin Hawkins, a hospitality volunteer at Impact Church.
"Men need to be engaged to be in church. It tends to be mostly ladies that come to church, but we do things to engage the entire family."

Coptic bishop 'humbled' by OBE
Sat 13 Jun 2015
By Desmond Busteed
A bishop of the Coptic Church who regularly speaks out over the fate of Christians in the Middle East has been honoured in this year's Queen's Birthday list.

Bishop Anba Angaelos, from Stevenage, is to be made an OBE for his work trying to preserve religious freedoms.
"I'm immensely honoured and humbled by it. I really do feel it's an obligation, it's a duty for me as a Christian minister to look at religious freedom for all, because I've always said freedom is God given and only state protected," said Bishop Angaelos to Premier.
The widow of a church organist beaten to death on Christmas Eve has been appointed MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
Maureen Greaves, a Church Army lay preacher, received the honour in recognition of her services to the community in north Sheffield.
Alan Greaves was attacked in 2012 as he walked to his church in Sheffield, dying a few days later.
Despite her loss Mrs Greaves said she had been determined to keep her up the charity work among the community.
The retired social worker was walking to St Saviour's Church to play the organ for the service, something he had done for 40 years, when he was attacked.
The father-of-four died three days later in hospital from serious head injuries.
Jonathan Bowling, 22, was jailed for life after pleading guilty to the murder.
Ashley Foster, 22, of Wesley Road, High Green was sentenced to nine years for manslaughter after a jury cleared him of murder.

UK: Prince William Praises Jewish Unity, Commitment to Society
Second in line to Britain's throne praises Jewish unity and commitment to society at large at first-ever address at a Jewish event.
The prince was speaking this past Thursday at a dinner in honor of the 25th anniversary of Jewish Care, the United Kingdom's largest health and social care organization for the Jewish community. It runs over 70 centers and services, caring for over 7,000 people and their families every week.

Some 1,500 guests at the dinner in Alexandra Palace heard Prince William's warm remarks, in which he said, "During a year when many in the Jewish community have had cause to feel under threat, for no reason other than simply the fact of your Jewishness, your unity is all the more precious. Your commitment and loyalty to one another, and to society more widely, is ultimately what keeps you strong.’’
Prince William is the elder son of Prince Charles of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales. He is second in line to succeed Queen Elizabeth, aged 89, after his father Prince Charles, 67. This was Prince William's first ever speaking engagement at a Jewish event, European Jewish Press reported.
“This common thread through history – of caring for one another and generosity of time and money – is something that many sectors of British society can be rightly proud of," the prince said. "But you in this room deserve particular praise. The results of your commitment to one another within the Jewish community are obvious – the real and loving care that thousands of elderly and vulnerable people receive, among the many works that you carry out."
Prince William concluded his address by wishing the organization “Mazal Tov” on its milestone anniversary, EJP noted.
Jewish Care’s president Lord Michael Abraham Levy, in his speech, recalled how Prince Charles and Princess Diana had been guests of the charity on three occasions: “You and your family are very special to our community. Every Shabbat and every big festival, prayers are given and blessings said for Her Majesty and the whole Royal Family.”

Prince William: “Your unity is precious when British Jews have felt under threat”
Prince William has delivered an historic address to more than 1,400 people at Jewish Care’s 25th anniversary dinner at Alexandra Palace.


Paying a glowing tribute to the organisation, it was the second-in-line to the throne’s first speech to a Jewish community function.


Introduced to the stage by Lord Levy, he said: “Thank you, Lord Levy, for your kind introduction and, Lionel, for giving your time to entertain us. I imagine the crowd here will be rowdier that what you’ll have at Glastonbury.


“Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for inviting me to join you this evening for your birthday celebrations. Nearly two hundred years ago, in 1819, there were two quite monumental births. The first was monumental for my family – the birth of my great, great, great, great grandmother, Queen Victoria, who went on to live 81 years and whose daughter-in-law, Alexandra, gave her name to this amazing building.


“The second remarkable birth was of an organisation, which later became known as the Jewish Blind Society. Over the next two centuries, the world changed considerably. Yet there has always been one constant in the United Kingdom – a Jewish community which has organised itself to support those who need help and support. Whether in the time of the Jewish Board of Guardians, or the Jewish Welfare Board or, in our generation, Jewish Care, there is a proud story to be told of self-reliance and communal responsibility.


“This common thread through history – of caring for one another and generosity of time and money – is something that many sectors of British society can be rightly proud of. But you in this room deserve particular praise. The results of your commitment to one another within the Jewish community are obvious – the real and loving care that thousands of elderly and vulnerable people receive, among the many works that you carry out.


“Your care for one another has another, less tangible value. During a year when many in the Jewish community have had cause to feel under threat, for no reason other than simply the fact of your Jewishness, your unity is all the more precious. Your commitment and loyalty to one another, and to society more widely, is ultimately what keeps you strong.


“I was reminded before I came here tonight that an ancestor of mine, a previous Duke of Cambridge in fact, visited the Great Synagogue in London in 1809 and attended a Sabbath service there with his brothers.

UK Muslim activist claims that Zionists broke into his home and stole one of his shoes

Jew stole my shoe!

This man, Asghar Bukhari of the Muslim Public Affairs Council UK, is clearly insane, or on cocaine (see how often he wipes his nose) or some other drug. Yet he is a respected political analyst and activist in the UK. Which tells you all you need to know about the UK today.

VIDEO ON YOU TUBE
Asghar Bukhari And The Case Of The Missing Shoe #MossadStoleMyShoe
https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=437&v=iGc83LRpYaY

Post on Facebook.
Asgar Bukhari June 12th
ARE ZIONISTS TRYING TO INTIMIDATE ME:
 Someone came into my home yesterday, while I was asleep. I dont know how they got in, but they didn't break in - the only thing they took was one shoe. Now think about that, the only thing they took was a single shoe - they left one shoe behind to let me know someone had been there.
Of course I cant prove anything and thats part of the intimidation. The game is simple - to make me feel vulnerable in my own home. Its Psychological. Neither can I do much about it.
It is not the first time I have heard this happening. I have had another Muslim leader call me a year or so ago, in tears - she told me they had been coming into her house and re-arranging things - just to let her know they had been there.
There is one good thing that comes out of all oppression however - for those who are smart - from my misfortune, others can learn how they operate. Share this widely, for if it is happening to me, I am sure it happening to many, many others who have not exposed it.

 'Twitter terrorist' who posted messages glorifying jihad has been jailed
Iraqi Alaa Esayed, 22, uploaded 45,600 Tweets in just under a year
Alaa Esayed was sentenced at the Old Bailey Photo: Central News
By Agency2:18PM BST 11 Jun 2015
A 'Twitter terrorist' who posted tens of thousands of messages glorifying jihad and calling for children to be armed has been jailed for three and a half years.

Iraqi Alaa Esayed, 22, uploaded 45,600 Tweets in just under a year and used photo-sharing site Instragram to post pictures of soldier's corpses and prisoners being beheaded.
Her tweets also included a poem 'Mother of the Martyr' which told mothers to build training camps in their back gardens and give young children weapons 'instead of Playstations'.

Another post called on 'Muslims everywhere in the world to strike the English' and kill 'Crusaders and Jews'.

Esayed appeared in court wearing a full face veil and black headscarf and did not show any emotion as the sentence was passed.
Jailing Esayed today at the Old Bailey today (thurs) Judge Charles Wide said: 'This material and its dissemination is an important factor in the encouragement of young men and women to travel abroad and engage in acts of terrorism.
'This is a phenomena which has greatly increased.
'It's a matter of great and justified public concern.

'You were disseminating such material on a massive scale over a period of just short of a year.
'An indication of how busy you were in this activity is that on a site associated with Al-Qaeda your Twitter account was noted to be one of 66 important jihadi accounts.


'The material that you were disseminating encouraged young men to go to fight and you now accept that was your intention.

'Furthermore to encourage women to go to support them and indeed to bring up their children in the belief that it is their duty to take up arms, to wage violent jihad and embrace martyrdom.

'And furthermore to encourage mothers to be proud of their sons who die as martyrs.
'The material included gruesome images of corpses and prisoners about to be beheaded.
'You intended to encourage this, as you now accept and it's a feature of your case that you continually change your story.'
Esayed was accompanied to court by her father and followed proceedings through an Arabic interpreter.
She used the Twitter account @bentalislam_i to post approximately 58 tweets per day to her 8,534 followers.
Prosecutor Mark Weeks said: 'During August 2013 police became aware of a Twitter account established in June 2013 and associated to an Instagram account.

'The Twitter account came to the attention of the police because of the volume and intensity of the posts.
'The account was on open account and could therefore be seen by any user on Twitter or the internet.

'The account appears to have been set up almost for the sole purpose of spreading the material.'
He added: 'There were numerous daily graphic tweets encouraging followers actively to engage in jihad and questioning those who do not do do.'

The account's profile picture was a photograph of a woman wearing a full burqa, holding a Kalashnikov and pointing to the sky.
Mr Weeks said there were a 'vast number' of posts and were all in Arabic.
Esyaed admitted posting the material, but told police she cannot read or write Arabic.
She told officers that she was trying to 'learn about the struggles of fellow Muslims around the world'.
Mr Weeks said:'She said she didn't have many real friends and the messages were a release to her.
'She said she had no intention of becoming a martyr.'
Tanvir Qureshi, defending, told the court that the material was 'entirely propaganda' and there was no 'practical advice' for committing acts of terrorism.
Esyaed came to the UK in 2008 with her family to join her father, who fought in the Iraqi military and fled to Britain in 1999.
'She was born and brought up in Iraq as a Muslim and all she ever saw was war-torn Iraq, people getting killed around get and explosions around her which shocked and horrified her,' he added.
He said that Esyaed is a Sunni Muslim and claimed she was trying to 'galvanise those fighting the Shia militia in Iraq'.

Judge Wide replied: 'She has changed her story so often that bluntly at the moment I would find it difficult to believe anything she says about it.'
Mr Qureshi continued: 'She was concerned about what was happening to the Sunni community.

'Yes, she is a Twitter terrorist but one who lacks creativity, she didn't have her own blog or YouTube videos or original material, she was copying and pasting.
'What we have today is not a hardened terrorist.
'She was socially isolated as a result of the experiences of her childhood.'
In her basis of plea Esyaed said: 'I accept I published a series of posts on Twitter and Instagram and in doing so I was reckless as to whether members of the public would be directly or indirectly encouraged or otherwise induced by the statement to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism or Convention (of European Human Rights) offences.


'I accept on my Twitter account I provided a service to others that enables them to obtain, read, listen to or look at a terrorist publication, namely providing links to poems and other propaganda and at the time of doing so I was reckless as to whether members of the public would be directly or indirectly encouraged or otherwise induced by the statement to commit or prepare or instigate acts of terrorism or Convention offences.'

Esayed, of Austral Street, Kennington, Southeast London, previously admitted disseminating terrorist material and encouraging terrorism.

Grand Imam visiting UK against Western military action on Islamic State
Wed 10 Jun 2015
By Desmond Busteed
The most senior Sunni cleric in the Middle East has urged against further military intervention by Western allies against Islamic State.

Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar made the comments following a meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Revd Justin Welby at Lambeth Palace.
Speaking through an interpreter the Grand Imam told reporters that "Arabs as well as the Free World has to work side by side to defeat this [Islamic State] organisation."
Asked by Premier if he believed military intervention or a diplomatic was the best course, he said: "I prefer the diplomatic solution because I represent an organisation which refuses bloodshed, no matter where is this bloodshed and where from."
After clarifying his remarks, saying he preferred political over diplomatic means, the Grand Imam said: "So if political efforts do not combine, we will all pay the price. I hope to see political solutions that will put an end, a stop to what is happening."
Asked by Premier what he meant by "political solutions'' to reach peace in the Middle East, he said: "Being non-political, I would think that there is the United Nations, there is the Islamic World Organisation and there are other bodies that are there in order to bring peace. Also the GCC, the Gulf Cooperation Council.
"If you look at the UN charter, you will see that there is an article, there is an item that talks about imposing peace in the world, if you apply this item then you will be able to hope to see peace."
The US and its allies, including the UK, have conducted thousands of strikes in Iraq, since August, and Syria since September. Isis militants hold large swathes of territory in the two countries and have executed captives and western hostages and destroyed ancient cultural sites and artifacts.
The Grand Imam is on a two-day visit to Britain as a guest of the Archbishop.
The visit builds on an agreement aimed at promoting dialogue between Christians and Muslims which was signed in 2002 after the 9/11 terror attacks.
This is the first time that the two leaders have met as part of this agreement.
The Imam said: "Of course we all agree that Israel is there and there are problems that people suffer.
"We need assistance from world powers so that peace can prevail in the Middle East.
"I do not know who is behind Daesh (Islamic State). I have no idea where they get their support from.
"There is a major terrorist organisation that the whole Arab (world) are paying a price for.
"The Arabs as well as the free world have to work side-by-side to defeat these organisations."
The Archbishop said he agreed with what the Grand Imam said.
He also said a "significant" discussion took place in which both religious leaders "stressed the importance of the continuation of the dialogue in the midst of the very difficult circumstances that the world is facing".
The Archbishop noted: "We have witnessed much violence and terrorism in the name of religion."
Both men said they wanted to "build bridges of peace" among communities of both faiths.
Representatives of the Anglican churches worldwide and the Grand Imam are to hold further talks at a special session in Cairo in December.

Archbishop tells MPs to "do right"
Tue 09 Jun 2015
By Desmond Busteed
The Archbishop of Canterbury has urged MPs and peers to "seek to do right" as he delivered his sermon at the Service for the New Parliament at Westminster Abbey.

"We have to seek to do right, but we can trust in the providence and salvation of God for the future. That is the promise made to the people of Judah, and thus they were to settle down amongst their enemies; to make the best of their situation, to bless the communities in which they lived, and look to the moment of their redemption," said Most Revd Justin Welby.
There is no coded political message in this, but there is a very un-coded theological one: God can be trusted, but we must do our part. And I know that is the belief and desire of the vast majority here today," added Archbishop Justin.
The event which took place in St Margaret's Church in the grounds of the Abbey on Tuesday, was attended by 250 MPs, peers and parliamentary staff, marking the new Parliament with prayer and worship.

Foreign aid could be diverted to control Africa borders to stop migrants at the source
MILLIONS of pounds from Britain’s overseas aid budget could be diverted to border controls in Africa to stop migrants leaving their home countries
By MACER HALL
PUBLISHED: 06:35, Mon, Jun 8, 2015 | UPDATED: 08:20, Mon, Jun 8, 2015
David Cameron has ordered Department for International Development officials to look at doing more to block would-be travellers at the start of their journeys to Europe. Niger, Somalia and Eritrea are among countries to be targeted with measures including security fences at borders and more coastguard patrols to prevent boats crossing the Mediterranean.

It could help counter criticism of Government spending on foreign aid.
At a debate on tackling the Mediterranean migrant crisis at the G7 Summit in Germany yesterday, Mr Cameron pointed to a Spanish government initiative to improve border controls in West Africa. A UK government official said the border enforcement plan was “under consideration”.
The source said: “One of the things we are looking at is whether we could be doing more at the source of the problem. That doesn’t only mean border security, it could be economic development.” Mr Cameron has faced criticism for refusing to cut Britain’s £12billion overseas aid budget while squeezing spending at most other Whitehall departments to reduce the deficit. He has asked International Development Secretary Justine Greening to look at ways aid spending can be diverted towards tackling security threats and rebuilding failed states to lower the incentive for migration.
In a break from the summit, Mr Cameron said: “There is an example in recent European history of a government that did successfully manage this problem. That was the Spanish government when people were leaving West Africa, arriving in the Canary Islands in large numbers.

Freedom of Speech, Religious Freedom| Sarah Mbuyi
A Christian nursery nurse who was sacked after airing her views on homosexuality and marriage in answer to a question from a homosexual colleague has won a discrimination claim against her former employer.
Sarah Mbuyi (31) was fired from her job at a nursery in West London after having a conversation with a homosexual colleague in which she explained the biblical position on homosexuality and marriage. On 6 January 2014 her colleague at the nursery initiated the conversation and had asked whether she would be welcomed at church and whether God would approve of her civil partnership and allow her to marry in church. Sarah said that “God is not okay with what you do” but that “everyone is a sinner and God offers forgiveness”. Miss Mbuyi recalled: “When I said ‘No, God does not condone the practice of homosexuality, but does love you and says you should come to Him as you are', she became emotional and went off to report me to my manager.” Following a complaint made by her colleague, Sarah was investigated and sacked for gross misconduct within three days of the conversation (9 January 2014). She was told by her employers that her comments breached equality policies and that she had harassed her colleague.
Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, and represented by leading human rights barrister, Paul Diamond, Belgian-born Miss Mbuyi fought the dismissal. She submitted an internal appeal but this was dismissed. She then commenced a claim at the Watford Employment Tribunal on the grounds that she had been discriminated against because of her Christian belief that the practice of homosexuality is a sin, arguing that she had the right under EU law to enter into conversations with adult colleagues subject to the normal principles of engagement in speech.
In a brave judgment, the Watford Employment Tribunal chaired by Judge Broughton, found unanimously that Miss Mbuyi had been directly discriminated against because of her belief that homosexual practice is contrary to the Bible. The Tribunal recognised that while the employer was “not anti-Christian” Miss Mbuyi had not been treated fairly and that the decision to sack her may have been made on “stereotypical assumptions about her and her beliefs”.
Miss Mbuyi’s belief was described by the Tribunal as one which is “worthy of respect in a democratic society, is not incompatible with human dignity and is not in conflict with the fundamental rights of others” and that the employer’s policy that there was a “prohibition on employees expressing adverse views on homosexuality and/or describing homosexuality as a sin” would have a “disparate impact on Christians holding similar views to Miss Mbuyi on the biblical teachings on practising homosexuality. That is not merely because a significantly higher proportion of Christians would hold such views but also because many evangelical Christians feel their faith compels them to share it.”
The Employment Tribunal found that:
Miss Mbuyi’s colleague had clearly indicated that she had first expressly brought up her sexuality in conversation with Sarah
She was the first to raise the issue of Miss Mbuyi’s church
She asked if she would be welcome in that church, and
She asked what Miss Mbuyi believed God thought about her living arrangements
She acknowledged that she took the conversation into the arena of homosexuality, not Miss Mbuyi
There is little or no evidence to suggest that Miss Mbuyi targeted her colleague in an attempt to force her faith on her
The employer’s lawyer sought to characterise Miss Mbuyi’s Christian beliefs as discriminatory, homophobic or akin to racism, which the Tribunal described as “unhelpful”
The employer did not treat Miss Mbuyi fairly and there were concerns about the way that the investigation had been carried out, particularly the questions asked during Miss Mbuyi’s disciplinary hearing
This was a case of ‘direct discrimination’, and finally
Given all the evidence it was not proportionate to dismiss Miss Mbuyi

The Tribunal made clear that the internal investigation by the employer was hampered by the “stereotypical assumption about evangelical Christians” and that the employer either “pre-judged the outcome accepting unchallenged evidence that supported the stereotypical assumption and/or interpreted Miss Mbuyi’s evidence in an almost impossible way”
 
"Freedom to live"
Andrea Minichiello Williams, barrister and CEO of the Christian Legal Centre said:

“This is a brave judgment and comes as a great relief to Miss Mbuyi and to all of us at the Christian Legal Centre.
“This judgment is a ‘common sense’ judgment which shows understanding of the Christian faith and Miss Mbuyi’s freedom to live and speak it out in the work place.
“We have been in the employment courts for over a decade now and at last we have a sensible decision.”
Miss Mbuyi is now working successfully as a nanny elsewhere. Today, she spoke of her immense relief at the outcome. “I only ever responded to questions that my colleague asked me and wanted the very best for her. I give glory to God for the decision and say ‘well done’ to the Christian Legal Centre.
“I hope that my previous employer and colleagues are well and will understand from this that my intention was for their best”
