Muhammed Sbihi Britain’s first Muslim Olympic rower solves Ramadan dilemma

Muhammed Sbihi – Britain’s first Muslim Olympic Rower

Muhammed Sbihi, Britain’s first Muslim Olympic rower has solved the Ramadan fasting dilemma for athletes, instead of fasting during the Olympic games he’ll pay for the meals for 1,800 people in his native Morocco as recompense.

When Muhammed Sbihi was picked for the GB rowing Olympic squad he faced a dilemma, how to marry his faith and to practice the month of Ramadan, where one must abstain from food and drink during the daylight hours and the demands it would have on him as a athlete in a once in a lifetime opportunity?

Willing to find another solution, he then heard about Moroccan goalkeeper Badou Zaki, who though a Muslim never fasted during his time at Real Mallorca in Spain’s La Liga. Instead, he would go to Morocco each year to pay for thousands of meals for the poor.

A cousin in Tangiers, the home town of Muhammed’s father, consulted scholars to come up with the final answer. Muhammed would follow the example of Ezzaiki and provide 60 meals for the poor for each day he misses the fast.

So this summer, up to 1,800 people in Morocco will eat a meal thanks to a 6ft 8in rower chasing a gold medal in the UK.

Islam is a religion of ease, Allah SWT knows the limitations of his creation. Allah, in the Quran, declares that religious morality is easy and that He will make things easier for those who follow their religion:

“He has chosen you and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship”
(Surah Al Hajj: 78)

“We will ease you to the Easy Way”
(Surah A’la: 8)

So well done to brother Muhammed Sbihi, looking forward to seeing you bring home the gold medal, Insh’Allah.

What does being “British” mean?

What does being British mean? Is there such a thing as “Britishness”?

With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations dragging on endlessly, (Kohinoor Diamond stolen from India) there’s a definite split amongst the Royalites and the rest of us, who are indifferent to the The House of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha, you know the German Queen and her Greek Prince husband.

So what does being British actually mean?

What does it mean to be British?

It means I can sit here in England

On an American website

With my Japanese laptop, that was probably made in S.Korea, with Coltan mined by children from war ravaged Congo

Drinking tea from Africa

While sitting on a chair from Sweden

That’s on a rug from Italy.

Later on I may jump into my British car, that’s owned by an Indian corporation

Go to a Dutch owned petrol station, to put in petrol that’s come from Iraq

& finally drive down to eat some Spanish tapas cooked by a Filipino chef.

I’m living the British dream – Benefiting from the legacy of a Global Empire whilst others serve that legacy.

Sadly, Britain isn’t as great as she used to be.

Hang the bunting & let’s celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!!!

It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee & here’s a few facts, Akh style, to help you celebrate;

In 1917, in the midst of the First World War, The House of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha decided to rebrand and became known as the House of Windsor. It’s leader and King of England, George V didn’t want the English public knowing of his Germanic roots, it wouldn’t go down too well knowing the English King was actually a German.

While we’re on the subject of the First World War, any idea how many millions died all over a Royal family feud? England’s King George V – Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II – Russia’s Czar Nicholas II were all cousins, all Grandsons of Queen Victoria.

Millions died because of an internecine family feud between the Kings of Europe.

So hang the bunting, bake a cake, throw a street party.

The Queen is German & Prince Phillip is Greek.

How’s that for multiculturalism England?

Bet you won’t be hearing that on the Daily Mail.

YouTube orders me to remove anti Muslim hate speech made by Roberta Moore – Leader of EDL Jewish Division

Roberta Moore the leader of the racist English Defence League’s Jewish division played the copyright card and got YouTube to issue a cease & desist order against a video I uploaded of her, making a hate speech against Muslims at an EDL rally in Dudley on July 17 2010.

As you can see from the capture the EDL Jewish division leader has a problem with free speech, yet funnily enough hid behind that very same rule to make her hate filled speech against Muslims in a public arena.

I’ve taken the liberty to re-upload the video for the sake of posterity, if you have a YouTube, or any other video sharing account for that matter, kindly distribute this video and let the truth ring free, as this zionist & racist machine we’re fighting will resort to every trick in the book to cover up and legitimise their hateful agenda.


In the words of Roberta Moore herself it’s:
“actually the Jewish Division that exploits the EDL.”

Zionists & the EDL, two groups that act as magnets for extremist right-wing rhetoric, supporting one another through xenophobia and ethno-centric supremacy.

A BBC2 Newsnight programme titled “Inside the English Defence League leadership” clearly showed EDL spokesman Amit/Guramit Singh saying that he receives his “intelligence” on Islam “from our researchers in Israel”.

The marriage of these extremist hate preachers and nationalist thugs is not just a marriage of convenience, it’s love at first sight.

Otherwise that Masajid that was almost burned down in Bury Park, Luton a few days ago (Luton being EDL HQ) will not become the exception, it will become the rule.

The EDL have previously stated: “Burn Our Poppies, We’ll Burn Your Mosques”

And days later a Muslim community centre in Ipswich was burned down.

Muslims have to take notice of this growing menace and take political action to stop it dead in its tracks NOW!

Vote Respect, Vote for George Galloway in Bradford West

A Respect powered change is blowing through the Bradford West by-election, with George Galloway the only man to vote for.

The choice is simple for the people of Bradford, more of the same dross and woeful mismanagement from Labour, or time for new ideas and a fresh focus.

I went upto Bradford this past weekend to pay my respects to the family of my friend Abu-Bakr who passed away while on the campaign trail.

The rest of the weekend I spent campaigning for Respect, to do for barely two days what my dear friend was committed to doing for so long.

It was a touching tribute to Abu-Bakr that the entire Respect team were decked out in the following T-Shirts:

It’s clear that we’re in a two horse race, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats are ranked at 80/1 outsiders. It’s between Respect and Labour for the seat.

The turnout at local events has been amazing, with Mosques, community centres and local housing estates all getting face time with the entire Respect team.

For the first time in decades, the people of Bradford have realised that they have been taken as fools by the Labour machine. Their unstinting loyalty to Labour has been taken for granted and has got them absolutely nowhere, and boy are Labour running scared, why else send the top brass, like Andy Burnham to Bradford to help rally the locals.

The Conservative party have had several members of their party jailed for electoral fraud in Bradford in 2005.

The Police and the Electoral Commission were called in to investigate members of the Labour Party in the 2010 General Election in Bradford for postal voting fraud as well.

There’s every chance that these crooks will try and steal the by-election again, unless you come out in your masses and support Respect.

The people have also realised, the feudal “baradari” system has been played to a tee by the Labour party, for generations members of the same clans have dominated the local political spectrum. The chai-wallah that served the master so well in the days of the Raj, has been alive and well in Bradford for the last fourty years.

But not any more.

Today the people of Bradford have a real choice to make.

More of the same corrupt practices, or a party that actually practice what they preach.

If you’re unsure of the quality of the candidates, then watch the above video from this week’s BBC Politics Show. Notice how the beeb gave every candidate an easy line of questioning, but not Respect’s George Galloway, who got the hardest time. The cozy establishment in Parliament and media does not want any dissenting opinions.

Also understand that Imran Hussain is a pro war candidate who wishes to stamp out “extremism” in Afghanistan and continue to send British troops to die for America’s wars of blood and treasure.

The people of Bradford have been stung into action before. At the last general election MPACUK kicked out the Zionist MP Terry Rooney from his Bradford East seat and the people of Bradford and Palestine are better off as a result.

The winds of change are blowing the stench of decay out of Bradford.

It’s time for a change, grasp the mettle and vote for George Galloway and Respect tomorrow.

Press TV & Britain’s War on Free Speech

Perfidious Albion, Our government is happy to go to war all over the world in the name of freedom, liberty and democracy. Our government will extol the virtues of freedom of expression and speech, but not in the case of Press TV, where it has prevailed upon it’s poodle the so called independent media watchdog OFCOM to remove Press TV off the Sky broadcasting platform.

The hypocrisy could not be more obvious.

After all, you can have a plethora of sex channels on British television, you can even have a gay sex channel on British television and that’s no problem for David Cameron’s media regulator, OFCOM.

You can be Rupert Murdoch at the head of a media corporation which stands accused of rampaging through practically every law in the book and yet you are deemed to be a fit and proper person to operate a television station in London.

The official reason behind the decision made by Ed Richard, the current Controller of Corporate Strategy at the BBC and the head of Britain’s Office of Communications (Ofcom), was that Press TV’s editorial team was based in Tehran.

Perhaps Mr. Richard should be reminded that CNN are head quartered in the USA.

What this decision says is that you can’t be a news channel that looks at the news from a different perspective to the grim prevailing orthodoxy of Washington and London.

It’s fair to say that Press TV has been a thorn in the side of Britain’s right-wing and pro-Israeli groups who have worked rigorously to limit its operations inside Britain.

Some political analysts have pointed squarely at the collusion between the zionist media lobby group, Britain Israel Communications & Research Centre (Bicom) & their influence over the (state-controlled) Ofcom to ban the alternative English-language channel Press TV in the UK.

Should we be really surprised?

The WikiLeak cables showed that the US state department wanted Press TV off Britain’s air waves prior to February 2010.

Our very own Foreign Office told US embassy officials who deal with Iran in February 2011 that it was “exploring ways to limit the operations of Press TV which operates a large bureau (over 80 staff) in London”.

So our Government has bent over and serviced the Americans yet again, care to remind me who actually runs this country?

Do we have any sovereignty left or are we the junior partner that merrily shoe shines for his American master.

With the pressure of hostilities being ramped up against Iran on a daily basis, I am of the view that banning Press TV is simply a ploy to silence any dissenting opinion against the manufacturing of war consent. If you deny Iran the ability of expressing really what is happening in it’s country and the motives behind the forces who are preparing to attack it, then you kill any opposing opinion to the pro war hawks.

Press TV may not be available on the Sky platform, but it’s still broadcasting into the UK. You can still view Press TV live on the internet, via a downloadable app on your smart phones or by any of the methods outlined on Press TV’s website.

They say truth is the first casualty of war.

It’s up to us to ensure that the lies told in the build up to the illegal invasion of Iraq are not allowed to be repeated again.
