Liberal and Progressive Left? Not really

Also read; Segregation and the Useful Idiot Paradigm For quite some time I have been able to observe that people on the political left strongly support the rights of Palestinians, indeed they are anti-war, anti violence, anti oppression and pro freedom - or so I used to think. Indeed I have travelled thousands of miles on convoys to Gaza with leftist non Muslims who are passionate about wanting to help the occupied and oppressed be it Iraq, Afghanistan or Palestine all predominantly Muslim countries. On any long journey it does however become clear that there are many areas of difference

So similar .. yet so different

Outwardly speaking, we can at times engage in identical actions to one another yet our inner motives can be dramatically different. The more one analyses the behaviour of human beings and ponders over their varying activities in life, the more one realises the accuracy of this observation. So accurate, so real and so stark of an observation it is that in Surat Al-Layl, Allah SWT takes an oath to draw your attention to it, rather three oaths! Ponder .. Allah says: “By the night when it covers” “And by the day when it appears” “And by He who created the

Anti-democracy: A response to ElBaradei

9 Min Read

Dr Mohamed ElBaradei's June 23 op-ed in Foreign Policy suggests that Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi - one year into a four-year term - should either resign, or be forced, from power. ElBaradei's article comes in the context of the "rebel" campaign, which is designed to force Morsi to call for presidential elections nearly three years before they are due. In his op-ed, ElBaradei - an opposition leader and former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency - complains about the lack of law and order in Egypt. He conveniently ignores the fact that Egypt has suffered from a general lawlessness

At Cageprisoners we receive a number of calls each week complaining about the treatment that Muslims are receiving by various agencies. It is time to redress the balance by informing the public of their rights. Since the start of the War on Terror, there has been consistent harassment of the Muslim community – and several non-Muslims too – by security agencies in the UK and abroad. There are many who will tell stories of how they were questioned by MI5, MI6, Special Branch and even the SAS while they were being tortured and mistreated by various security agencies abroad. Unfortunately

How Woolwich Became a Platform for Islamophobes

May 22nd 2013 will be remembered for the day Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered by Michael Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo. However for Muslims, it was the day that drove undercover Islamophobes to come into the open, enticing every British person to stand against anyone of the Muslim faith. Could people really be so naive to blame a nation for the mistake of one person, or is the Muslim community the cause of so much hate? One thing is for sure, this tide of hatred did not arise on that day alone, so is it really an angry response to the

The intellectulisers of hate are the enablers of the fascist Right wing

Douglas Murray is also on the board of governors. He has openly said that he would like "Conditions for Muslims in Europe must be made harder across the board” Muslims in Britain are all too familiar with the activities of the English Defence League. As an organisation the E.D.L. tries to conceal its member’s vile racism as it aims to define itself as an anti-Islam/ anti-Shariah movement. In reality the E.D.L. are really just the proverbial monkeys of the Islamophobia Industry and the racist sentiments of their members on twitter and on their marches are regularly exposed by organisations such
