The country of Angola has reportedly “banned Islam”, “dismantled & destroyed Mosques”, with Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos stating:
“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country”
The liberal establishment has been very quiet on this one, I suspect if it had been a Muslim country banning Christianity the reaction would be slightly different.
A couple of points to note.
Ever since AmeriKKKa set up its AFRICOM command structure, terrorism and instability has sky rocketed. I’d say it’s part and parcel of US foreign policy to destabilise swathes of Africa. I’m sure some clever person out there has mapped these incidents and correlated them to prove my theory.
It’s probably not the smartest of ideas to ban religious practices if your rebuilding your country after the end of a 27-year civil war. When Governments starts to persecute groups of people within their own country you get genocide, Hutu’s, Tutsi’s, Rwanda are three words that spring to mind.
Like many of you, I watched the Islamic GPU conference over the course of the last weekend & had the following themes of human rights, citizenship, peaceful mutual coexistence and global unity rammed down my throat for fourty eight hours, as if these are concepts that alien to Muslims and that we have to prove that we are worthy and able to live upto such lofty ideals.
Of course no one in their right mind would ask if any other nation state is worthy.
Maybe the President needs to read his own bible “love one another as I have loved you” before deciding to adopt American policy.
Maybe it’s just another indicative sign of the times.
We debate endlessly where we should put our hands when standing in prayer, while the enemy cuts of our legs.
