George Bush, The Saudi King & Turkeys Sent by Allah

George Bush detailed how he bonded with Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia during a visit to his Texas ranch.

Arriving angry at Mr Bush’s holiday home over the president’s position on Israel and Ramallah, the Crown Prince quickly decided he wanted to leave.

But then he spotted a turkey on the road – and took it as a good omen, a sign from Allah.

Relive this and other gems from the defining moments of the presidency of George Bush, in his memoir ‘Decision Points’, which is due to be published next month.

If anyone can tell me which one of these two turkeys should be served up for christmas, then please do get in touch.

Abu Izzadeen/Omar Brooks Released From Prison – Slams Britain’s Foreign Policy Towards Muslim World

Abu Izzadeen was released from prison yesterday, and immediately slammed Britain’s foreign policy that has seen itself twinned to America’s desires over total hegemony over the Islamic world.

The Akh has never been a fan of Abu Izzadeen and his merry men.

Although I accept that he and countless others are political prisoners for the views they hold.

Skip to 2 minutes in to the video:

In case you don’t remember, this is why he was arrested in the first place:

Political prisoner for speaking out against a tyrant ruler or radical extremist?

I’ll let you decide

Between the Good Fight Fi’Sabeel’Allah & Peace

At all times we must pray to Allah and give thanks for allowing us to be Muslims and the union, understanding, the pure and sincere affection between all those who take Allah’s name. With it there is strength and success. Without it there is humiliation, slavery, and moral degradation. There may be many causes of difference and dispute, but reconciliation can only come from the glory and wisdom of Allah.

As my Jumma reminder, first and foremost directed to myself before anyone else, I was reading the following passage from Surah Al Anfal (Surah 8, Verses 59-63) from the Holy Qu’ran, and felt compelled to share;

59 Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of Allah): they will never frustrate (them).

60 Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

61 But if the enemy incline towards peace do thou (also) incline towards peace and trust in Allah: for He is the one that heareth and knoweth (all things).

62 Should they intend to deceive thee verily Allah sufficeth thee: He it is that hath strengthened thee with his aid and with (the company of) the believers.

63 And (moreover) He hath put affection between their hearts: not if thou hadst spent all that is in the earth couldst thou have produced that affection but Allah hath done it: for He is Exalted in might Wise.

Interpretation:

(8.59) The immediate occasion of this injunction was the weakness of cavalry and appointments of war in the early fights of Islam. But the general meaning follows. In every fight, physical, moral, or spiritual, arm yourself with the best weapons and the best arms against your enemy, so as to instil wholesome respect into him for you and the Cause you stand for.

(8.60) There are always lurking enemies whom you may not know, but whom Allah knows. It is your duty to be ready against all, for the sacred Cause under whose banner you are fighting.

(8.60) Be always ready and put all your resources into your Cause. You do not do so in vain. Allah’s reward will come in various forms. He knows all, and His reward will always be more generous than you can possibly think of.

(8.61) While we must always be ready for the good fight lest it be forced on us, even in the midst of the fight we must always be ready for peace if there is any inclination towards peace on the other side. There is no merit merely in a fight by itself. It should be a joyful duty not for itself, but to establish the reign of peace and righteousness and Allah’s Law.

(8.62) In working for peace there may be a certain risk of treachery on the other side. We must take that risk: because the men of Faith have Allah’s aid to count upon and the strength of the united body of the righteous.

(8.63) On the immediate occasion, the greatest miracle and most wonderful working of Allah’s grace was the union of hearts produced among the jarring, war-like, excitable clements of Arabia under the gentle, firm, and wise guidance of Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah.

Have a safe weekend and remember this Ummah in your duah’s and let those prayers translate into moving your limbs into action Fi’Sabeel’Allah, for prayer without an action to back it up becomes insincere.

Lauren Booth – “Why I Became A Muslim” & The Zionist Hate Campaign Against Her

Lauren Booth had her first press conference since reverting to Islam and becoming a Muslim. She spoke out on what lead her to Islam, the discrimination Muslims face, rampant Islamophobia in sections of the media and the zionist witch-hunt against her.

On what lead her to convert to Islam

“I have not actively been seeking to convert to Islam at all. I have not been studying Islam, although when you work in Muslim communities you’ll get clue to a quite deal of the Qur’an and in people’s speech. So, I suppose I have learned a few bits of the Qur’an by accident. This really has to do with the love of the people of the “Ummah” and the great united feeling of arms being put around you once you open to Islam.

But first and foremost, this is about the connection that I felt with God that I did not expect. Because would not have converted out of love for the people of Islam because that is just friendship.

I could not have converted without having had a big spiritual experience that changed my heart. I had to know God first and I feel I hopefully do a bit now.”

On discriminations against Muslims

“The one difficult thing for me in this converting to Islam moment has been the fact that it will affect the way I am perceived by people who watch my work with Palestinian organizations quite closely and critically because the sad truth is at the moment if you are a Muslim in the Middle East you are listened to less than if you are a Christian or if you a Jew. This is not the Christians’ fault, that is a monologue that is coming over from the neo-cons from America and it has to do with the disrespect of the Muslim people so I don’t think that my converting is going to help with my causes that I want to help in Palestine unfortunately, but I will give me energy to carry on when I find it difficult and it will give me the chance to pray even more for the people of Palestine, which is a good thing.”

Her views on western media Islamophobia

“Some parts of the British Press are surprising me perhaps. They have been very level, I think, in covering the story, because if they attacked me too harshly in the mainstream media, they reveal the Islamophobia that is latent in a lot of their writings. So I actually think in the main papers it has been quite calm but perhaps in the blogs and other commentaries it is not.

There has to be a line drawn to this somewhere.”

Her reactions to the Zionist media propaganda campaign against her

“One good piece of advice I got as soon as I announced that I have converted to Islam was do not read the nasty stuff. Do not go to the blogs, do not read the comments on the video of you announcing your conversion.

Just leave it.

So actually, I have ignored a lot of the presumed unpleasantness out there. What I have been focusing on and what that has been so easy to find is the love and support and friendship of the Muslim community.”

The Akh is not surprised one iota by the hate campaign being waged against sister Lauren, in the mainstream press and blogosphere.

The zionist stooges and islamophobe journo’s out there have yet again shown their out right contempt for Islam & women alike by this concerted attack.

Have you ever witnessed such vitriol when some d list celebrity adopts kabbalah as a way of life?

No…..didn’t think so.

An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us – Sister Lauren, stay steadfast and pay no heed to these naysayers.

Cherie fails to sell Tony Blair’s autograph on eBay

You would have thought that with several homes, highly-paid careers as war profiteers with a multi-million-pound fortune, the Blair’s don’t need the cash, but Cherie has been hawking her husband’s autograph on fleabay.

The former prime minister’s wife has been caught selling her husband’s signature on eBay for £10. An initial asking price of £25 failed to garner any bids.

More cringe worthy behaviour from the Blairs, who have shamelessly cashed in on warlord Tony’s prominence as Prime Minister.

Earlier this month a Freedom of Information request revealed that Mr Blair had chosen to take a number of items, given to him by world leaders and celebrities, with him when he left Number 10. The presents included nine watches from Silvio Berlusconi and a guitar signed by U2 frontman Bono.

No mention was made of the gifts sent by Rupert Murdoch or the American administration of George W Bush.

The only thing The Akh wants to see his autograph on is a confession statement to the international criminal courts in The Hague for the war crimes he committed during his tenure.

Wikileaks Iraq War Logs – American & Britain Armies Have No Humanity

A grim picture of the US and Britain’s legacy in Iraq has been revealed in a massive leak of American military documents that detail torture, summary executions and war crimes. The newly released Wikileaks documents show the level of brutality unleashed upon the people of Iraq, and the extent to which the Americans & British went to cover them up.

The problem I have with the release of this data is the sheer volume of it all – it all becomes statistics, straight, cold, hard statistics that numb the reader by taking away the humanity or the lack of it shown by the invading forces.

This is typical of the information released, military jargon.

These people have names.

Nahiba Jassim – a pregnant woman – was murdered in a US army checkpoint shooting.

She was being rushed to the maternity hospital in Samarra when the car was fired upon at a US army checkpoint. Saliha Hassan, her cousin who was in the car was also murdered.

They were just two from almost several hundred civilians who were murdered in cold blood, it didn’t matter if you were a pregnant women or even mentally ill.

This bit of military jargon refers to the torture and execution of Adnan Awad Al Jumaili. He was left to die in jail, with the Pentagon issuing secret orders to it’s troops to look the other way while people were being tortured to death.

The UN Convention on Torture blocks states from handing individuals to the authorities of another state where this would place them at serious risk of torture.

The British army are no better.

A soldier shot dead an eight-year-old Iraqi girl as she played in the street.

She remains nameless.

Support our troops?

When will people get it into their thick heads that the military are a bunch of thugs in uniform who are paid to go to other countries and kill other defenceless people.

I can’t support that, oh and by the way the second world war ended more than sixty years ago, so the battling nazi’s line doesn’t carry weight with me.

Dispatches carried out a summation of the wikileak findings last night, the programme Iraq’s Secret War Files is available to watch for the next seven days on the Channel 4 website.

The fact that the supposedly damaging leaks are in fact bolstering American accusations against Iran while minimizing American complicity in Iraqi deaths leads some to believe that the leaks are in fact engineered by the Pentagon to either discredit Wikileaks, or are in conjunction with Wikileaks which is a U.S. government outfit.

While all of the press seems to be reporting the story, few media outlets are going back to their own coverage and acknowledging how they had failed at the time, to report many of the atrocities we now know the US military knew about, and covered up. One glaring example: the killings that took place in Fallujah, where Al Jazeera correspondents were banned.

There is an oft repeated phrase that “the truth is the first casualty of war”.

What we are seeing now is the sordid truth being revealed, the truth of murder, rape and torture of innocent men women and children, by the very people who still view themselves as liberators, bringing freedom and democracy to the birthplace of civilisation.

Lauren Booth, Tony Blair’s sister-in-law converts to Islam & the zionists are hating

Lauren Booth, who has been campaigning for Palestine for years, has Alhumdulillah become a Muslim at this weekend’s GPU.

Pro zionist sites are up in arms.

The level of hostility and the personal attacks on Lauren are quite disgusting, even her children are fair game for insults.

Don’t be surprised though, zionism teaches supremacy over others who do not subscribe to their corrupted way of thinking.
