  Muslim Rape Gang Found Guilty of Abusing White Girl
Eleven of fifteen Muslim men charged in May with the sexual grooming of a 14-year-old girl have been found guilty, after the judged said they treated his court with “contempt and arrogance”.

The girl was “raped in car parks, parks and churchyards” in the small town of Keighley, near Bradford in the North of England, the court has previously heard.

“In 40 years of practice, I have never seen a dock that has been as insolent and disrespectful as this one. I have the poorest of opinions about the defendants”, blasted Judge Roger Thomas QC at Bradford Crown Court, where the verdict was passed.
In a unanimous verdict following a seven-week trial, ten of the men, aged between 19 and 63, were found guilty of rape and an eleventh was found guilty of sexual activity. One defendant was also found guilty of raping a second under-age victim in 2009.

The court has heard how she was called a “little white slag” and a “white bastard” as she wept on the floor and was raped by five men in succession on one occasion.

The jury also heard that the girl was passed around the men by a “nasty” 17-year-old drug dealer named Ahmed Al-Choudhury, who was described as the “ring leader” of the Muslim rape gang.

He allegedly first raped her in a churchyard when she refused to continue making drug deliveries for him when she was still a virgin. Mr. Choudhury was not one of men standing trial, however, and is thought to have fled abroad.

The eleven defendants will be sentenced on February 5, along with a twelfth defendant, Khalid Mahmood, 34, who previously pleaded guilty to five counts of rape.

According to the Sun, Judge Thomas praised the police, saying: “This has been a very considerable exercise for the police.

“The victim was missing from home and school so often – it seems to be accurate that police and other agencies were doing their best to try to exercise some control over the victim.

“They were met with an unhappy young girl who was in a vulnerable position and unable to take their help.”

Speaking after the verdict, Detective Chief Inspector Chris Walker, from West Yorkshire Police described the investigation as “challenging, complex and sensitive” and heralded the bravery of the victims.

He said: “I would like to pay tribute to the victims who have shown a great deal of courage in standing up to their perpetrators.

“These young girls were preyed upon and either raped or sexually assaulted.

“One was even passed around by these men for no other reason than their own gratification.

“Child sexual exploitation is one of the most important challenges facing the police. It is totally unacceptable and it is the responsibility of all agencies, communities and individuals to identify those responsible and help bring them to justice.

“Protecting the victims is a priority. However unwilling they may be initially to engage with police or other agencies, or to give evidence against the perpetrators, they will always be supported and protected from further harm.”

BREAKING: Prince Charles Makes Devastating Statement About Islam… Muslims Are Outraged
 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
Advertisement - story continues below
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.

David Cameron reiterates commitment to persecuted Church
Wed 16 Dec 2015
By Marcus Jones
The Prime Minister has said we should do all we can to protect persecuted Christians around the world.

Addressing a question from Christian Tory MP Sir Gerald Howarth during Prime Minister's Questions, David Cameron also went on to praise the role of the Archbishop of Canterbury in addressing the issue.

He said: "I join my honourable friend in saying that we should do everything we can to defend and protect the right of Christians to practise their faith the world over. That is an important part of our foreign policy. Let me commend Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, for the excellent work he does in that regard."

Sir Gerald also asked the Prime Minister to remind the British people that we are a country fashioned by our Christian heritage and that is what has made us a welcoming country to refugees.

In his response, Mr Cameron said: "Yes, Britain is a Christian country. I believe that the fact that we have an established faith and that we understand the place of faith in our national life makes us a more tolerant nation and better able to accommodate other faith groups in our country.

"That is why, as I said earlier, we should be proud that this is one of the most successful multi-ethnic, multi-faith, multi-religion democracies anywhere in the world. That is not in conflict with our status as a predominantly Christian country; that status is one of the reasons why we have done it."

Pastor James McConnell to wait until January for verdict
A Protestant evangelical preacher accused of making "grossly offensive" remarks about Islam will have to wait until the new year to find out his fate.
Wed 16 Dec 2015
By Antony Bushfield
A Protestant evangelical preacher accused of making "grossly offensive" remarks about Islam will have to wait until the new year to find out his fate.

Pastor James McConnell, 78, has been on trial following a sermon in which he branded Islam "heathen", "satanic" and a "doctrine spawned in hell".

District Judge Liam McNally told Belfast Magistrates' Court: "We have come to the end of an interesting three days.

"Obviously I am going to reserve my judgment. I want to consider all the points raised in submissions."

The pensioner is being prosecuted under the 2003 Communications Act and faces two charges - improper use of a public electronic communications network and causing a grossly offensive message to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network.

FAITH UNDER FIRE
PREACHER CONVICTED OF QUOTING BIBLE, NOW HIGH COURT JUMPS IN
'Ludicrous situation: Slightest accusation of a phobia is enough to paralyze rational action'
Published: 13 hours ago

Michael Overd
An appeals judge in the United Kingdom has issued a stunning reversal of a lower-court judge’s blast at the Bible over a street preacher who quoted Leviticus in explaining the Christian perspective on homosexuality.

According to officials with Christian Concern, which fought in court on behalf of street preacher Michael Overd, it was Taunton Crown Court Circuit Judge David Ticehurst who upheld Overd’s appeal.

He ruled the government “failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify the conviction,” the organization reported.

Overd had been convicted by a judge, Shamim Ahmed Qureshi, who also serves with the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, the overseer of the nation’s Shariah courts.

Qureshi had taken the “extraordinary step” of determining and announcing in court which Bible verses “it was appropriate for Mr. Overd to use in his public explanation of the Bible’s teaching on homosexual practice,” the organization reported.

Overd, in a statement released by Christian Concern, said the case never should have come to trial.

Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea have collaborated to create “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians,” which confirms that groups like Pew Research, Newsweek and The Economist also identify Christians as “the world’s most widely persecuted religious group.”

“The court was faced with the farcical situation of a witness telling the judge that he couldn’t even remember what I had said, but simply asserting that it was ‘homophobic’ – as though the mere assertion that something is ‘homophobic’ is enough to curtail free speech,” he said.

“In this country, we are now in the ludicrous situation where the slightest accusation of a ‘phobia,’ be it ‘homophobia’ or “Islamophobia,’ is enough to paralyze rational action by the police and authorities. The highly politicized dogma of ‘phobias’ now too often results in trumped up charges and legal action.

“There is a chilling effect,” he said.

WND reported earlier in 2015 when the case developed.

Overd was convicted and fined by Qureshi, who told him he should not have referenced Leviticus Chapter 20 in explaining the biblical view on homosexuality, but “clearly indicated that he could have used Chapter 18 of the book.”

Overd had been taking part in street-preaching activities in Taunton, Somerset, at the time. Homosexuals filed the complaint, alleging Overd had “offended” them.

Overd, 50, was fined $300 and ordered to pay compensation and costs totaling $1,800.

He explained at the time he was approached by people with questions while he was preaching. Then they filed a complaint over his answer.

“I have been ordered to pay compensation for causing ‘emotional pain’ to someone who approached me aggressively demanding to debate the issue,” said Overd at the time. “There was no harm, injury or theft, just a simple disagreement over theology which I have now been fined for.”

Qureshi, who, according to a 2009 article in “The Brief” chronicling the rise of Shariah law in Britain, serves with the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, the overseer of the nation’s Shariah courts, said it was impermissible to reference Leviticus 20:13 because it discusses the death penalty.

Overd took issue with Qureshi dictating which passages from the Bible were lawful for him to use.

“I am amazed that the judge sees it as his role to dictate which parts of the Bible can and can’t be preached,” he said then. “I did not quote the full text of Leviticus 20 or make reference to the death penalty, but the judge is telling me that I should use other parts of the Bible. This is not free speech but censorship. The judge is redacting the Bible.”

Andrew Williams, chief of the Christian Legal Centre, said, “Public debate is becoming more superficial and fragile. People feel that certain things can’t be said. That is dangerous. It prevents us from challenging ideas, beliefs and behavior that need to be challenged. It may make some people feel more comfortable, but it doesn’t make the country safer.”

Williams continued, “Mike’s case highlights problems that will only get worse if the government ploughs on with its flawed ‘Counter-Extremism Strategy.” Islamic terrorism needs to be tackled, but giving the government far-reaching powers to clamp down on all sorts of beliefs that it doesn’t like is dangerous.”

Added Overd, “Reasonable, law-abiding people now feel that they can’t say certain things and that is dangerous. Totalitarian regimes develop when ordinary people feel that there are certain things that can’t be said.”

The BBC noted Ticehurst awarded costs in favor of Overd, who lives in Creech St. Michael.

WND reported when the case developed that Qureshi also criticized Overd’s preaching style and training.

“In my view he enjoys coaxing people into asking him questions so that he can reply loudly into the microphone to answer them. The only semblance of civilized conversation is when they commend him, if they disagree he shouts them down,” he charged.

Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea have collaborated to create “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians,” which confirms that groups like Pew Research, Newsweek and The Economist also identify Christians as “the world’s most widely persecuted religious group.”

Bid to halt trial of pastor who called Islam "satanic" fails
A judge has rejected an application to stop the trial of an evangelical preacher accused of insulting Islam.
Pastor James McConnell, 78, has been charged in connection with a controversial sermon made at Whitewell Tabernacle in north Belfast, a large church in the region, last year.
Mr McConnell from Newtownabbey, Co Antrim, is being prosecuted at Belfast Magistrates' Court under the 2003 Communications Act.
He is facing two charges; improper use of a public electronic communications network and causing a grossly offensive message to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network, after the sermon was streamed online.
He denies both the charges.
His defence had urged the judge to halt the trial on day two of the proceedings.
District Judge Liam McNally said he was not convinced by defence arguments that there were no circumstances under which the preacher could be convicted: "I reject the defence application and I hold that Pastor McConnell does have a case to answer in relation to the charges against him."
Defence barrister Philip Mateer QC said that McConnell could not be held accountable for the actions of "mad men" who smash windows in Belfast or who murder on the streets of Paris: "Freedom of speech is an important principle in our society and we are entitled to manifest our religious belief, be that Christian, Muslim, Jew, atheist or whatever."
The court was shown an hour-long DVD recording of the service during which the comments were made on Monday.
In the recording McConnell tells his congregation of around 2,000 people and 700 viewing online that: "Islam is heathen. Islam is satanic. Islam is a doctrine spawned in hell."
Mr Mateer told the court: "He is not stereotyping a whole religion, he is talking about cells of people.
"If the pastor was more astute to the watery words to be used to weave our way through difficult areas... it would have put it beyond doubt if he had said there are 'cells' of jihadists. It would have put it beyond doubt if he said 'cells' of Islamists."
However, David Russell, for the Public Prosecution Service, said the case centred on whether a reasonable member of society could find the words offensive: "It is not whether he has caused gross offence to a member of the community at which it was aimed but whether a reasonable member of society judges that it would cause gross offence.
"It seems to me these comments fall clearly in line with being capable of being grossly offensive."
The case is due to finish on Wednesday.

Catholic Church questions plans for Scotland's first Muslim state school

Tue 15 Dec 2015
By Antony Bushfield
The Catholic Church has said it will back Scotland's first state supported Muslim school, as long as it conforms to the same rules other faith schools do.

Al-Qalam primary school in Glasgow wants public money to help it expand into secondary education, but it wants to remain independent from council control.
The plans would see the 60 pupil school funded by tax payers but controlled by governors.
State funded Catholic schools, and schools of other faiths in Scotland, are currently run by local authorities.
Michael McGrath, director of the Scottish Catholic Education Service told the Herald the Church would have no objection to other faith schools but he suggested they had to be under council control.
He said: "Our Church obviously believes in the value of denominational schools and would be supportive of other wider forms of denominational provision being available where there is public demand.
"Of course we would expect these schools to be managed and governed in the same way as Catholic schools are as well as being regulated in the same ways."
The proposal has provoked debate about faith schools.
Nabeel Shaikh, general secretary of the Glasgow Central Mosque, told the Herald there was increasing demand for a Muslim state school: "Lots of questions are raised over why there isn't any state-funded Muslim school. I live in East Renfrewshire which has great Catholic schools and where a new £13 million joint campus for Jewish and Catholic pupils.
"Considering the number of Muslim pupils around Glasgow, many ask why we don't have a faith-based school but where the national curriculum is taught. Pupils could freely practice their beliefs but the curriculum is predominantly secular."
The school proposes to be "non-selective" and open to all faiths. It said it wanted to specialise in Islamic education.
The plans will now be considered by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Government needs "incredibly ambitious plans" to meet obligations of Paris climate deal, says Christian environmentalist
A Christian conservationist has said the UK government will need "incredibly ambitious plans" to put the targets of a draft climate change deal reached in Paris into action.
Andy Lester from the charity A Rocha was speaking after world leaders struck the draft agreement after all-night talks at the end of a two-week conference.

It is hoped ministers from countries all over the world will officially settle on the legally binding deal by the end of Saturday, though there may be opposition from some nations.

The draft deal commits to ensuring global temperatures do not rise more than two degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels, and is aiming for them not to rise above 1.5 degrees celsius.

Major world nations will have to make very significant changes in order to meet the target.

Andy Lester told Premier if countries could meet the targets then very serious effects of climate change like sea levels overtaking land could be averted - effects which overwhelmingly affected poorer, developing nations the worst.

Because of this, he said: "We as a Christian community have got to put our government under pressure to change its policies, change the mindset and get them seriously active on climate change now, otherwise the whole proposal we've got in front of us will be meaningless.

"The government's undone a lot of green subsidies and tariffs... If countries like the UK are seriously going to meet that objective of under two degrees they've got to have incredibly ambitious plans on renewable energies.

"This is a good milestone but the really hard work starts now. This is the beginning, not the end of the process."

Church of England priest banned after marrying male partner
Sat 12 Dec 2015
By Aaron James
The Church of England has banned a priest from carrying out services because he married his male partner.
Revd Jeremy Davies was with his partner Simon McEnery for more than 25 years before the couple got married last year.
Mr Davies had served as canon precentor at Salisbury Cathedral for around the same period.
He wrote to the Diocese of Winchester requesting permission to officiate in it, but the Diocese turned this request down on the grounds he went against the Church's doctrine that gay clergy should not get married.
The Diocese of Winchester had expressed its opposition to the gay marriage at the time a year ago.

New York priest accused of stealing over a million dollars
Sat 12 Dec 2015
By Aaron James
Parishioners in New York have accused a priest of stealing more than one million dollars to pay for gay sex sessions, illegal drugs, holidays and housing.
They launched a lawsuit on Thursday against Fr Peter Miqueli, 53, who currently leads St Frances de Chantal church (pictured above) in the Throggs Neck area of the city.
The writ claims Mr Miqueli paid up to 1000 dollars a time to have gay sex sessions with a Mr Keith Crist, and paid $264,000 for a house in New Jersey.
It also claims he paid a doctor to obtain illegal drugs, and gave him $60,000 towards a house deposit.
Court papers say: "This lawsuit seeks to finally put an end to this truly sinful conduct so that St. Frances de Chantal parish can regain the strength, spirituality and faith it once had before Father Miqueli arrived."
Fr Peter Miqueli is yet to enter a response to the allegations against him and proceedings continue.

Barclays slammed for using 'Bank Holiday' rather than 'Christmas'
Sat 12 Dec 2015
By Aaron James
A Christian charity has criticised the banking giant Barclays for using 'Bank Holiday' rather than 'Christmas' in its seasonal opening times.
Signs for Barclays opening times over the festive period make no mention of Christmas Day or Boxing Day.
In comparison Natwest, Halifax and Lloyds all refer to Christmas in their opening times.
Colin Hart, from the Christian Institute, told the Daily Telegraph: "Barclays Bank shouldn’t be ashamed of Britain’s Christian heritage.
"It should reverse this politically correct mad decision as no one is offended by using terms like Christmas or Easter."
Some people agreed with his view on Twitter:

Christians less stressed during Christmas
Mon 14 Dec 2015
By Premier Journalist
A new study conducted across the UK and Europe has found that Christians tend to be less stressed around the Christmas period than others. 
The research published by Applied Research in Quality of Life, reported that a good education and having children at home also helped to ease stress.
Professor Michael Mutz of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in Germany responded to the report saying, "People with a Christian affiliation and a strong sense of religiousness celebrate Christmas differently than the majority of non-Christians.
"Christian religious affiliation is a protective factor against the general decline of subjective well-being around Christmas.
"It can be assumed that [Christians] are less prone to becoming absorbed by the consumerism that precedes the holidays."
Professor Mutz noted that society is often pressured by a growing consumer culture, buying Christmas presents and fulfilling social obligations. Christians, although not exempt from hectic holiday pressures, had greater feelings of peace and contentment during the festive season than other study participants.

Accused preacher Anjem Choudary granted bail
11 December 2015
Radical preacher Anjem Choudary has been granted conditional bail as he awaits trial for allegedly encouraging support for so-called Islamic State.
Mr Choudary, 48, had spent the last two weeks in custody after breaching his bail by meeting a person he was "precluded from contacting".
At the Old Bailey on Friday, he was granted bail on the same conditions.
Mr Choudary, from Ilford, east London, pleaded not guilty to charges of encouraging support for IS.
He will remain in custody until a £15,000 surety is provided to the court.
His co-accused, Mohammed Rahman, of Whitechapel, in east London, also pleaded not guilty to inviting support for IS between 29 June 2014 and 6 March 2015.
The case was adjourned until 11 January for a further hearing, ahead of the scheduled start of the trial the following day.
The trial is expected to take three to four weeks.

As a former extremist who knew Anjem Choudary, I fear for the mentality of British Muslims
Like 33 per cent of British Muslims do, I once supported the idea of a caliphate based upon sharia law. But the debate has now become polarised and poisonous

Anjem Choudary, Britain’s loudest Islamist extremist, has finally been remanded in custody, charged under section 12 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The charge is related to him sending messages to his 32,000 followers on Facebook, allegedly encouraging people to join Isis. His guilt or innocence is a matter for the courts. What concerns me here is his trajectory.

I first met Anjem in 1994, when I was 17 years old. We were both students of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), which was led in the UK back then by the Syrian firebrand cleric Omar Bakri Muhammad. HT is responsible for first popularising the notion of resurrecting a theocratic caliphate in Muslim-majority countries. At the time, I had been studying at Newham College and was eventually expelled due to my Islamist belligerence. Anjem volunteered as my lawyer, furnishing me with advice on my expulsion.

Later that year, HT organised an international caliphate conference at London’s Wembley Arena, the first and largest of its kind globally. As our fellow HT activists went up and down the country plastering eye-catching bright orange stickers pronouncing The Caliphate - Coming Soon to a Country Near You, Muslims were arriving from all over the world to behold Wembley stadium, packed with 10,000 people cheering in unison for the return of the Caliphate. Those were the days before Isis, even before al-Qaeda, when HT was the most extreme manifestation of this pernicious Islamist ideology in Britain. The British-Muslim scene would never be the same again.

Anjem Choudary charged with 'inviting support for Isis'
Anjem Choudary claims all Muslim MPs and voters are 'apostates'
The BBC's Mark Easton is right to compare Choudary to Gandhi
I next met Anjem roughly 15 years later on the BBC Newsnight set with Paxman. By now, I had abandoned my former extremist dogma, and through my organisation Quilliam had set about challenging Islamism as an affront to the civil liberties of the very Muslims it claims to serve. Our BBC debate is most memorable for Anjem’s complicit acceptance that – were a caliphate to be established – I would be executed for being deemed an ‘apostate’. Since this debate, ISIS has indeed declared a caliphate and has left us in no doubt how it would treat dissenters like me.

Despite the fact that up to 1000 British citizens have travelled to join Isis’ medieval theocratic nightmare, and in some cases entire families have up and left, it is true that only a tiny minority of Muslims worldwide support ISIS. But I fear that too many Muslims disagree with Isis’ caliphate, not because it is a caliphate, but because it is not their caliphate. The very idea of resurrecting a theocracy in this day and age has worrying levels of support. According to one survey, 33% of British Muslims supported the notion of creating a worldwide caliphate based on a version of sharia, as law. And if our only criticism of Isis is that its theocracy is not utopian enough, this doesn’t bode well. The cumulative effect of our Islamist preaching in the UK since the early 90s has resulted in polarised communities and unhealthy theocratic aspirations forming a normalised part of life among too many British Muslims.

In fact, the debate has become so skewered towards Islamism that liberal Muslim activists are routinely dismissed as having ‘gone to the other extreme’ to figures such as Anjem. But no, secular liberalism is not the ‘other extreme’ to Islamism - a desire to enforce a version of Islam over society. The other extreme is anti-Muslim bigotry and the desire to ban Islam, which is incidentally also rising across Europe.

 
I care not to debate which came first, Islamism or anti-Muslim bigotry, suffice to say that both feed into each other symbiotically. Liberalism, on the other hand, means a legal right for one to be religious or not, and an absolute right to express criticism of religiosity, or preach it. So no, liberal Muslims have not gone from 'one extreme to another'. Nor have liberal ex-Muslims for that matter, so long as they remain supportive of individual liberty. But because our vantage point often starts way out there with ISIS, even al-Qaida can perversely appear “moderate” in comparison, as poor liberal Muslims are labelled extreme outliers to any productive debate and the word moderate has become so relative that it’s lost all meaning.

This is how far the Islamic ball has strayed from the democratic court. And when wider society adopts this trope of liberal Muslims being the ‘other extreme’, it shows how low expectations of Muslims have become in the mainstream. How far we all have come since the 90s, and how far we all have to travel – yet - to reach a reasonable centre in this poisonous debate.

DAVID Cameron has warned the migration crisis could force Britain into leaving the European Union as he continued talks aimed at striking a new deal with Brussels.

By JAKE BURMAN
The Prime Minister said the short-term impact of the influx of migrants arriving in the EU could lead voters to “push Europe away”.

His remarks come as the number of migrants claiming asylum in the EU this year passed a staggering one million according to EU statistics agency Eurostat.

But hinting he may consider a lengthy campaign before his promised referendum on EU membership, Mr Cameron said that the “longer term reaction” to the migration crisis could be to make sure that there was a relationship with Brussels that “works”.

The Prime Minister was in Poland on the latest leg of his diplomatic offensive to win backing for the reform programme he hopes will allow him to recommend the UK remains within the 28-member bloc.

A major obstacle is his call for a ban on EU migrants claiming in-work benefits in Britain until they have been in the country for four years – which he hopes will deter citizens of other member states from coming to the UK.

More than one million migrants have claimed asylum in the UK

But Mr Cameron said the wider migration crisis – triggered by people seeking to come to Europe – could harden British opinion against the EU.

He said: “I think with both the eurozone crisis and the migration crisis, the short term impact is for people to think, ‘oh Christ, push Europe away from me, it’s bringing me problems’.”

Indicating he may consider delaying a referendum until nearer the end of 2017, Mr Cameron added: “I think the longer term reaction might actually be, well if they are going to have a single currency and they are on our doorstep and they are going to try and make it work, let’s make sure our relationship with them works and

1,500 Years After First Christian Church Planted, Britain No Longer Christian Nation

Almost 1,500 years after St. Augustine of Canterbury founded England's first Christian church in 597 A.D., the British people have been told in no uncertain terms that they're no longer living in a Christian country.

A sensational report released this week by the Commission on Religion and Belief in British Public Life challenges this country's time-tested moral and public values system. In language that raises eyebrows — and tempers — the report says the United Kingdom should cut back the Christian tone of major state occasions and shift toward a "pluralist character."

Events such as coronations should be changed to be more inclusive, it says, while the number of bishops in the House of Lords should be cut to make way for leaders of other religions.

The recommendations from the commission, chaired by the former High Court judge Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, highlight major changes in British society, such as the decline in people who say they are Anglicans, down from 40 percent in 1983 to less than  20 percent in 2013. 

Although membership in the commission included leaders and academics from every major religious tradition, a spokesman for the Church of England blasted the findings as "dominated by the old-fashioned view that traditional religion is declining in importance and that non-adherence to a religion is the same as humanism or secularism."

That may be referring to the commission's call for new policy on religion and belief in the U.K. that would "provide space and a role for all within society, regardless of their beliefs or absence of them." 

Royal sources say that Prince Charles, 67, would have considerable sympathy with some of the report's recommendations. The heir to the throne has often spoken of wanting to be, when king, defender of faiths and not just "the faith."

Key recommendations include:

The creation of a Magna Carta-style secular statement of values governing public life as an alternative to the much-proclaimed but little-understood adherence to "British values."
The scrapping of religious assemblies for schoolchildren, along with ending of the segregation of children by faith at schools throughout the land.
An end to the dominance of 26 Anglican male bishops in the House of Lords (the British Parliament's upper house) and the replacement of some of them with Muslim imams, Jewish rabbis and other non-Christian clerics.
The complete overhaul of the coronation service for the next monarch so that leaders of faiths other than Christianity play major roles.
A major rethinking on the British government's anti-terror policy so that radical views can be expressed at universities and institutions of higher learning by preachers and teachers who are currently damned as extremists by security and intelligence networks.
Two years in the making, the report was set up by the Woolf Institute, which was established at Cambridge University in 1998. It is this country's leading think tank studying relations between Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities. 

While gathering evidence, the report's commissioners met with Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury who is spiritual leader of the world's 800 million Anglicans; Ephraim Mirvis, the South African-born Chief Rabbi (Orthodox) of the Commonwealth; and leaders of Britain's fast-growing Muslim community (currently estimated at 2.8 million).

Even so, some Christians are furious. They believe humanists and secularists are the brains behind this controversial report, which has been damned as "seriously misguided" by the Church of England, the country's established church since the 16thcentury. Its Supreme Governor is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title "defender of the faith." 

At her coronation in 1953, Queen Elizabeth swore "to uphold the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel, maintain the Protestant reformed religion established by law and preserve the settlement of the Church of England."

There is not a single reference in the coronation service to a religion other than Christianity or a denomination apart from the Church of England.

But that was over 60 years ago, when most Britons who were asked to fill in forms asking their affiliation simply put "C of E" (Church of England), whether they went to church on Sundays or not.

Meanwhile, the Church of England is battling internal divisions as well. Welby is busy preparing for a "make-or-break"  meeting in Canterbury next month—one that could determine the long-term future of the Anglican Communion.

He is attempting to hold together a group of 37 Anglican primates who are bitterly divided on the subject of human sexuality.

Church of England sources say the meeting will attempt to repair damage caused by feuding clerics on the explosive issue of full Christian rights for gay men and women and pave the way for the next Lambeth Conference — until now the showpiece of Britain's Anglican/Protestant Christian heritage—in 2018.

Calls to cut number of bishops in House of Lords to make way for other faiths
Mon 07 Dec 2015
By Aaron James
A landmark review into the place of Christianity and other religions in Britain has recommended some Anglican bishops should be removed from the House of Lords to make room for other faiths.

Specifically, the Commission on Religion and Public Life called for the number of bishops to be cut from 26 to 16, to allow clerics from other major religions in Britain to be represented, as well as other strands of the Church currently which are excluded, such as the Roman Catholic Church and Black-majority churches.

The Commission is the first of its kind and took two years to compile. The commissioners involved, a third of whom were Christians, went across the UK canvassing opinions on how to adequately include different religions, and people with no religion, in modern Britain.

The review was launched on the back of three major changes since the Second World War:

A significant increase in the number of people identifying themselves as having 'no religion';
A significant increase in the proportion of people practising faiths different to Christianity, and;
A significant change in the diversity of the British Church, where Anglicans and Methodists have declined while Black-majority churches, Evangelicals and Charismatic and Non-Denominational churches have increased.
It made a number of other proposals, including:

Scrapping compulsory Christian worship at schools
Reducing the number of school admissions based on a child's faith or religious background
Making national events more inclusive of other faiths, for example the Coronation
Making religious programming more representative of British society, including other religions and atheists on Thought of the Day and Songs of Praise
Religious education to be compulsory in all schools, and for this to reflect other religions and atheism better
Promoting better understanding of all religions in the media and wider society.
Rt Revd Lord Harries, a former Bishop of Oxford and now peer, told Premier it "doesn't bother me at all" that the number of Church of England bishops in the House of Lords could be cut.

He continued: "I believe that Jesus is Lord and Saviour of the whole cosmos... But we live on Earth in a very diverse society, we also have to work to find those areas of commonality with other people.

"It's [the report] certainly not trying to take Christianity out of public life and public consciousness, but we are reflecting the fact that up to half of the population now say they have no religion.

"If we're wanting a society in which everybody feels truly home, our public events must be symbolised in a slightly different way.

Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, a Christian, former senior judge and chair of the Commission, told Premier: "I would not have put my name to this if I thought it was in any way likely to diminish the importance of Anglicanism and indeed the Christian religions.

"They remain enormously important. We still have 40% of people who for one way or another say that they are Christian.

"I would fight to support the Anglican religion in this country."

The Church of England welcomed some aspects of the review, but also said: "We are however disappointed that the report misunderstands the role of Church of England schools in providing a rounded education to more than a million pupils from all backgrounds as part of our commitment to the common good.

"If there is a significant problem with our schools it is that many of them are so popular that they are oversubscribed and not every parent who wants to can send their children to one.
 
"The report also misunderstands collective worship in schools. We believe that if the law on collective worship were repealed schools would risk losing this vital element of shaping a community that reflects the full breadth of human experience.

"We know, for example, that the response of many schools to the horror of the Paris attacks will have been in the context of collective worship.
 
"The report is dominated by the old fashioned view that traditional religion is declining in importance and that non-adherence to a religion is the same as humanism or secularism.
 
"In a fortnight where we have seen overwhelming public support for the Church of England over the Lord's Prayer cinema advert, it is important to remember that most public opinion is strongly opposed to the marginalisation of Christianity."

The Evangelical Alliance, present at the review's launch in Portcullis House in Westminster, expressed regret that it was not included in the group of commissioners who compiled the findings and recommendations, given that it represents more than two million Christians in Britain.

The commissioners said they included a wide range of evangelical views as they collected evidence from Christians across Britain.

It said in a statement: "The Evangelical Alliance welcomes the call in this report for government to acknowledge and embrace authentic plurality.

"Some suggestions in the report, particularly in relation to education, could be interpreted as reflecting a distinctly secular perspective and need clarifying, because there is no such thing as secular neutrality. It's a myth.

"Effective democracy, substantive human rights and liberty are intractably linked to the Bible and the Christian faith.

"If we want to continue to enjoy the fruits of our culture, as a society we will need to continue to tend, or at the very least acknowledge, the roots of our culture."

Bishop of Carlisle: pray for Cumbria as Storm Desmond hits
Sun 06 Dec 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Cumbria has been hard hit by floods brought about by Storm Desmond.
As flooding continues to affect many areas of the region Christians are being encouraged to pray for all of those affected.
The Environment Agency has declared 130 flood warnings, while residents in parts of Cumbria were evacuated from their homes.
The Bishop of Carlisle, the Rt Revd James Newcome told Premier that through all the negative, he hopes that: "that out of all of this something very positive will come, in terms of developing relationships - kindness of all kinds shown, often in small but very significant ways, and a sense of people pulling together as they have in the past."
He said: "The last 24 hours have seen unprecedented weather conditions which have brought hardship to many living in Cumbria due to flooding.
"I live in Keswick so have seen for myself the terrible problems that this storm has created and fully sympathise with those affected."

"Our church is probably under water", says community worker
Sun 06 Dec 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Jonny Gios a Methodist Community Worker in Kendal has told Premier that the community spirit will overcome Storm Desmond.
He was speaking after nearly 200mm of rain fell in Britain's wettest area Shap, in Cumbria: "I'm still getting messages now saying 'can we help?', 'can we come down to the church a help rescue people and provide food and things?'
"So the community is really coming together - unfortunately our church, I think is probably under water."
A man has died as a result of Storm Desmond, causing Cumbria to declare a major incident.
The Environment Agency has declared 130 flood warnings.
Rain continued to fall overnight in Scotland, northern England and northern parts of Wales.

The poor with no insurance are devastated: Cumbria church worker
A church worker in Cumbria, who has been helping to support victims of flooding, has told Premier that many poor people have lost everything because they did not have contents insurance.
"We need to get plans in and community support so that when this does happen we can respond better and help those who can't afford to be insured. I think that's something that we have to look at on a government level."
Talks are due to take place between churches and the council on Monday evening, in an attempt to help affected families recover in time for Christmas.

Archbishop of Canterbury's refugee plans stalled
Sun 06 Dec 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Plans for the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, to offer a home to Syrian refugees in a Lambeth Palace cottage are on hold due to bureaucratic delays. 
The Archbishop made the announcement ten weeks ago as 84 Church of England bishops criticised David Cameron's government for ignoring their help to offer accommodation to around 50,000 refugees.
The Sunday Times has reported that officials at Lambeth Palace are so concerned about the delay that they have come up with a back-up plan to invite Christian refugees from the diocese of Egypt instead.
But they dropped this idea after worries were raised that it could single some families out and leave others behind.

Multi-faith march in Bradford after Christian convert attacked
Sat 05 Dec 2015
By Hannah Tooley
A multi-faith peace rally will be held in Bradford on Saturday following the attack on a man who converted from Islam to Christianity. 
Wilson Chowdhry, from the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA) is behind the idea and told Premier it is all about unity: "It's a multi-faith peace vigil that will be attended by key figures from the Islamic faith, Hindu faith, Sikh faith and Christian faith.
"We hope that by showing unity in this fashion we're showing seeds of peace and love, rather than hatred and division."
The event is being held after the attack of a Christian man in the city.
Nissar Hussain converted from Islam to Christianity in 1996 and claims that problems surrounding his faith began in 2008 when his family appeared in a Channel 4 documentary, Holy War, about how Muslim converts are treated.
Mr Hussain suffered a fractured knee cap and hand when he was attacked outside his home in St Paul's Road, Manningham, Bradford, last month.
CCTV footage shows that he was struck 13 times with a pickaxe handle and kicked and punched repeatdly.

A petition which is calling on the BBC to remove the Christian boxer Tyson Fury from its Sports Personality Of The Year shortlist is gaining support.
Wed 02 Dec 2015
By Antony Bushfield
A petition which is calling on the BBC to remove the Christian boxer Tyson Fury from its Sports Personality Of The Year shortlist is gaining support.

"Tyson Fury is not a role model," the petition says as it accuses him of being homophobic.

The devout-Christian gave the glory to God last weekend when he was crowned the new heavyweight champion of the world after beating Ukrainian Vladimir Klitschko.

Before the fight he tweeted: "Feeling great, blessed be the Lord Jesus Christ"

But he's a controversial character having previously told the Mail on Sunday there were three things that would happen "before the devil comes home".

He said: "One of them is homosexuality being legal in countries, one of them is abortion and the other is paedophilia. Who would have thought in the 50s and 60s that those first two would be legalised?"

In 2013 he was fined £3,000 by the boxing authorities after suggesting opponents were "gay lovers".

Those statements, and previous quotes deemed to be homophobic, have led to the petition being set up.

Mr Fury does not display "the kind of behaviour that merits inclusion on such a well-respected award programme", the petition claims.

But responding to the petition the boxer stood by his comments: "I don't regret anything I've ever said. I'm a man of honour and a man of my word, and what I've said I stick to through thick and thin.

"Whoever wants to challenge me, let them come and challenge me. Whoever doesn't like me, I don't care anyway.

"If you want to give me the award, give it me, and if you don't - keep it."

He's up against Jessica Ennis-Hill, Andy Murray, Lewis Hamilton, Chris Froome, Mo Farah, Kevin Sinfield, Adam Peaty, Lucy Bronze, Max Whitlock, Greg Rutherford and Lizzie Armitstead.

UK teen spent student loan to join ISIS
19-year-old Yahya Rashid alleges he wanted to join 'Islamic Utopia' but not fight; jailed for five years.

 A 19-year-old who spent his student loan traveling to the Turkey-Syria border and wanted to join the Islamic State (ISIS) group is behind bars in Britain, police said Thursday.
Yahya Rashid paid £906 (1,300 euros, $1,400) for himself and four friends to travel to the Turkish border town of Gaziantep in February.

He stayed in an ISIS safe house but shortly before he was due to cross into Syria, he changed his mind and returned to Istanbul.

Rashid, aged 18 at the time, was then detained by Turkish police and deported back to Britain, where he was arrested on his arrival.

Police believe his traveling companions did cross into Syria and are still there.

Rashid, whose family is originally from Somalia, was sentenced to five years in a youth offenders' institution Wednesday for terrorism offenses.

"You told the jury you had never held a gun in your life and there is no reason to believe that is untrue," Judge Philip Katz told Rashid as he passed sentence. "But goodness knows what you would have gone on to do as a foot soldier of ISIS."

Rashid's lawyer Mark McDonald claimed his client had wanted to live in an "Islamic utopia" but not fight.

ISIS TERROR WARNING: Britain NEXT to be ATTACKED by jihadists, supporters claim
BRITAIN is at risk from the next Islamic State attack, supporters of the evil terror group have warned in unconfirmed tweets. By TOM PARFITT
They made the chilling threats on Twitter after at least 160 people were killed by a series of co-ordinated attacks on Paris last night.

After gloating about the horror that shocked the world, armchair jihadists tweeted that London could be next.

The twisted tweeters also claimed to have two other major capitals in their sights – Washington DC and Rome.

The twisted tweeters also claimed to have two other major capitals in their sights – Washington DC and Rome.
London was last hit by a terror attack in July 2005, when 52 commuters were killed by suicide bombers linked to Islamist group al-Qaeda.

But officials have reportedly been working tirelessly to thwart ISIS attacks since the militants declared a caliphate last summer.

Last month Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, admitted the security service can "never be confident" in stopping all terror plots against Britain.
Washington DC's police department has deployed extra officers to high-profile locations in the city – including the government's Capitol complex.

But aspokeswoman insisted: "There is currently no known threat to the Capitol complex."

Security has also been beefed up at the city's French Embassy but a fashion show went ahead as scheduled at the venue yesterday.

Hosts paused the event for a moment of silence to honour the tragic victims of the Paris attacks.

The last terrorist incident in Washington DC was in April 2013, when a man sent letters laced with ricin to Barack Obama.

James Dutschke's plot to poison the President was thwarted by officials and he was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
This summer a knife-wielding fanatic stunned Rome by holding the blade to a tourist's throat, according to reports.

He allegedly shouted "Allah is great" and "it is God that sends me" in front of horrified visitors to the Colosseum.

Chiara Frisco, 26, said: "I felt myself pulled suddenly into the middle of the crowd. 

"Then I felt the blade of the knife that he was holding against me. I feared the worst would happen.

"I could not see the weapon. The whole attack lasted seconds but I felt a tremendous fear.

"The man was yelling like a maniac. Luckily the police came though."

The Film That Uncovers What is Really Happening in Mosques Across The UK
WATCH THIS VIDEO
Prince Charles has spoken out against the radicalization of young Muslims. He described this radicalization as ‘alarming’ and explained how his own charity, The Prince’s Trust, is working with Muslim youths to stop this. He was speaking to BBC Radio 2’s The Sunday Hour prior to a six day trip around the Middle Easy, including meetings with Kings Abdullah II of Jordan and Salman of Saudi Arabia. It is obvious that the future King sees this radicalisation as a threat to the UK. He also said, of his future role as monarch that he will not just be Defender of the Faith (part of the Monarch’s official title) but “Defender of the Faiths.” As the future head of the Anglican Church, he also expressed his support for Christians all around the Middle East. He did not, however, speak about the rise of anti-Semitism.

While anti-Semitism itself isn’t necessarily a threat to national security of the UK, US, and many other countries like radical Islam, it is a threat to the social cohesion of these countries. Many Jews in the UK feel they no longer have a future there and are planning to move mainly to Israel or the US. This rise in has been mentioned by the Home Secretary, Theresa May and the Communities Minister, Eric Pickles. At a speech to the UKs Board of Deputies, they assured the leaders of British-Jewry that they are planning legislation to specifically target anti-Semitism.
But will this do anything to curb the rise in anti-Semitism, especially amongst the UK’s national institutions. The BBC and Sky News, both famed amongst British Jews for being anti-Israel, have had anti-Semitic incidents in the past months. While the BBC apologised for its reporter Tim Wilcox saying “Many critics though of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.” It has, however failed for posting a controversial question about the Holocaust the day before International Holocaust Day. Sky News, meanwhile, has failed to apologise for two of its lead reporters saying anti-Semitic comments. First, Adam Boulton put it to Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis that Israel is to blame for anti-Semitism, then Eamonn Holmes said it is ok to be anti-Semitic if you’re Palestinian.
The BBC have taken this to another level and have been accused of ‘race baiting’ by inviting the extremist ‘King of anti-Semites’ George Galloway MP to take part in its flagship political program, Newsnight, when it is being filmed in Golders Green, a predominantly Jewish area. Mr Galloway, is famous for calling on Muslims to kill British soldiers at the start of the Second Gulf War, and for being given an oil barrel by Saddam Hussein. His latest incident, was describing his Parliamentary constituency as Jew and Israeli free, and that Israelis were not welcome there.
With incidents like this, is it any wonder that there is now an anti-Semitic parade being organised in Stamford Hill (another predominantly Jewish area, mainly Chareidim). The Metropolitan Police have said that they are looking into it and have not decided whether to allow it or not. While protesting is a sign of a free society and a hallmark of British democracy, this serves no purpose other than to allow racism onto London’s streets. If this march happens, then it is a sign of another treasured British institution, the Metropolitan Police, leaning towards anti-Semitism.
With all this going on, is it any wonder that Jews want to leave. The future Monarch is doing well to combat Islamic Radicalisation but he also needs to get The Prince’s Trust to combat anti-Semitism. After all, Jews have helped build the UK into what it is today. A strong bill is needed to tackle anti-Semitism and show British Jews that the Government has not forgotten them. Words are fine, but it is action that matters!

Mosques May Be Closed To Prevent Extremism In The UK
OCT 21, 2015
Prime Minister David Cameron announced a new proposal Monday to counter extremism in the United Kingdom that includes an idea to close certain Mosques.

The controversial plan is meant to work against all forms of extremism but focuses primarily on radical Islamists. Cameron said the fight against  terrorism might be the “defining one of this century,” and he outlines a number of proposals to help prevent young British citizens from joining extremist organizations.
“Islamist extremists don’t just threaten our security, they jeopardize all that we’ve built together – our successful multi-racial, multi-faith democracy,” Cameron wrote on his Facebook page. “While Islamist extremists in no way represent the true spirit of Islam, we cannot ignore the fact that they attempt to justify their views and actions through Islamic scripture and theology.”
One point in the 40-page plan sets out to “restrict access to premises which are repeatedly used to support extremism,” which may include mosques.
he plan has been met with much opposition from the Muslim community in the country. Shuja Shafi, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, claims it has “McCarthyist undertones.”
“Whether it is in mosques, education or charities, the strategy will reinforce perceptions that all aspects of Muslim life must undergo a ‘compliance’ test to prove our loyalty to this country,” he said in a statement.
The proposal would also give parents of teenagers under the age of 18 the right to cancel their children’s passports to make

CAMERON UNVEILS NEW COUNTER-EXTREMISM STRATEGY
The UK prime minister unveils the specifics of a counter-extremism strategy promised earlier in the year and gives $7.7 million to the fight.
Mon, October 19, 2015
Parents will be able to have the passports of their teenage children canceled if they are at risk of joining the Islamic State or other Islamist terrorist groups.

The measure is part of new “Counter-Extremism Strategy” being announced by David Cameron today.

Other steps include:

Preventing radical preachers from posting materials online.
Barring anyone convicted of terrorist or extremist activity from working with children or other vulnerable people.
The announcement comes a day after a £5 million ($7.7 m) fund was established to provide “credible alternative narratives to the dangerous views propagated by extremists.”

The money will go to fund a “national coalition” against radicalization, formed from local initiatives, charities and a Muslim newspaper putting out an anti-extremist message.

Cameron first announced his anti-extremism strategy in a speech in June, when he pledged to fight both violent and non-violent extremism and to completely overhaul the government’s approach to de-radicalization.  

In that speech, he became the first Western leader to pinpoint the ideology of Islamist extremism as the root cause of terrorism, distinct from, but related to, the religion of Islam.


The British counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation, staffed primarily by former Islamist extremists who now challenge their former ideologies, advised the government on its new more direct policy.

Approximately 700 British nationals have travelled to Syria or Iraq to fight for extremist groups such as the Islamic State.

Wed 07 Oct 2015
By Hannah Tooley
The prime minister has announced plans to force all religious schools to register and be inspected.

Speaking at the Conservative Party Conference David Cameron said those teaching intolerance will be shut down.
"If an institution is teaching children intensively then whatever it's religion, we will, like any other school, make it register so it can be inspected - and be in no doubt, if you're teaching intolerance, we will shut you down," he said.
He promised the country that it was his "duty" to keep Britain safe and that it was time to "really confront extremism".
But the Evangelical Alliance warned any new measured had to be carefully considered.
David Landrum, director of advocacy at the Evangelical Alliance, said: "It is right that we actively 'rebuild Britain as an even greater country' and take stringent measures to eradicate extremist ideology.
"However, it is vital that committed Christians are not labelled as extremists by those who may disagree with aspects of their faith.
"Any bill to tackle extremism must not undermine the very democracy that it seeks to protect. We would urge the prime minister to consult with all faith groups to ensure that historic freedoms of religion and belief are secured in the implementation of this bill."
Peter Byrne/PA Wire
David Cameron added: "Did you know, in our country, there are some children who spend several hours each day at a madrassa?

"Let me be clear: there is nothing wrong with children learning about their faith, whether it's at madrassas, Sunday schools or Jewish yeshivas.
"But in some madrassas we've got children being taught that they shouldn't mix with people of other religions; being beaten; swallowing conspiracy theories about Jewish people.
"These children should be having their minds opened, their horizons broadened, not having their heads filled with poison and their hearts filled with hate."
Peter Byrne/PA Wire
He concluded: "So I can announce this today: If an institution is teaching children intensively, then whatever its religion, we will, like any other school, make it register so it can be inspected.

"And be in no doubt: if you are teaching intolerance, we will shut you down."
As part of his attempt to tackle the problem of extremism impacting young people, he has vowed to shut down Muslim Madrasas that preach hate to children, he added that schools "teaching children intensively" will have to register for inspection.
The PM stressed extremist schools were part of a wider problem of segregation within some communities, adding extreme madrassas "incubate these divisions".
"There are parts of Britain today where you can get by without ever speaking English or meeting anyone from another culture.
"For too long, we've been so frightened of causing offence that we haven't looked hard enough at what is going on in our communities.
"This is passive tolerance and I'll tell you where it leads: To children, British children, going to Pakistan in the summer holidays, before they've even started their GCSEs, and forced to marry a man they've never met."
Stefan Rousseau/PA Wire
"Children, British children, having their genitals mutilated, not just in a clinic in Lagos but the back streets in Britain.

"This passive tolerance has turned us into a less integrated country; it's put our children in danger. It is unforgivable.
"So let me say it right here: no more passive tolerance in Britain. We've passed the laws - now I want them enforced."
He also vowed to keep the nation safe, tackle poverty and ensure opportunities for all.
But Labour have criticised him for launching a personal attack on leader Jeremy Corybn.

Preacher who says Islam is "satanic" asks judge to force radio host to give evidence in his favour


Thu 01 Oct 2015
By Antony Bushfield
An evangelical preacher who branded Islam "satanic" and "heathen" has appealed to a judge to summon BBC radio host Stephen Nolan to appear as a witness in his court case.

Pastor James McConnell is due to stand trial in December charged in connection with a controversial sermon he made last year.
Defence solicitor Joe Rice told Belfast Magistrates' Court his legal team wants Mr Nolan, a Radio 5 Live and Radio Ulster presenter, summonsed.
"On this occasion Mr Nolan has regretfully said he is not prepared to assist. He has indicated through his BBC lawyers in London he will only assist if there is a court summons.
"On this occasion, as the pastor put it, Stephen Nolan is the biggest miss-show in the country."
Pastor McConnell, 78, is being prosecuted under the 2003 Communications Act.
He faces two charges - improper use of a public electronic communications network and causing a grossly offensive message to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network - after remarks made from the pulpit of Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle in north Belfast were streamed online.
Hundreds of Christian supporters attended Laganside Court Complex in Belfast city centre for the short hearing which had to be held in one of the largest courtrooms.
District Judge George Conner gave the defence team seven days to produce a written application outlining what evidence they believe Mr Nolan could provide.
The judge said: "I want to know what evidence the witness could reasonably give."

Pastor James McConnell

Mr Rice said the defence was also considering lodging an abuse of process application.
And, in a scathing attack on Northern Ireland's Public Prosecution Service (PPS) he revealed his first "substantive" communication with prosecutors in a month was this morning - 45 minutes before the hearing was due to begin.
Handing the judge a letter which had been faxed to his office, the solicitor added: "The prosecution have adopted the tactic of the silo. We have been kept in the dark."
Prosecutor David Russell told the court there not been any undue delays in the case and the decision to proceed was made following a rigorous investigation which included lengthy consultations.
"This was an extremely careful and thorough process," he said.

Throughout the hearing McConnell sat in the public gallery beside by friends and family members. His wife Margaret, who has accompanied him to previous hearings was not present. It is understood she is recovering after a fall.

Outside he, addressed a crowd of applauding and cheering supporters who were carrying banners which read "Christianity under persecution" and "civil and religious liberty for all".
He said: "This is for the defence of the gospel.
"As far as I am concerned the Muslim issue is over. The issue is the freedom of speech; the freedom of conscience; the freedom of worship and the freedom of preaching the gospel and saying what is in your heart.
"If they do put me in prison, when I get out again I will preach the same message.
"I hope I get my Christmas dinner. I will be there on December 14, 15 and 16. I am not running away, definitely not. I am going to take my stand for the Lord."
The hearing was adjourned for mention on October 29.

Pakistani Christians not all "at risk" says UK government
Thu 01 Oct 2015
By Hannah Tooley
Christians in Pakistan are not all "at risk" of persecution according to the British government.
Cross bench peer Lord Alton submitted nine written questions to Parliament on the subject of Pakistani Christians and their plight.He is concerned that not enough is being done to support believers who live in the predominantly Muslim country.It is thought tens of thousands of Pakistani Christians have already fled violence to countries such as Thailand and Sri Lanka, where tourism visas are relatively cheap.Lord Bates answered one of the questions saying: "The UK recognises there may be individual cases of religious persecution.

"However, not all Christians are at risk.
"It is important to carefully consider each case on its merits."

Cornwall church accuses Lloyds Bank of losing its priceless artefacts
Thu 01 Oct 2015
By Aaron James
A church in Cornwall has accused Lloyds Bank of losing artefacts it has given them for safekeeping. 
One of the items from Veep Parish Church in St Austell include a silver communion cup dating back to 1579, before the English Civil War, which is thought to be worth more than £4,000.
Other artefacts include a silver flagon tankard, dated back to 1737, and a silver plate dated 1738.
Bernard Bonsey, the Veep churchwarden, originally tried getting the items back to put on display for Easter 2015. The church still does not have its deposits
Mr Bonsey told the Daily Telegraph: "I truly believe the bank has lost the silverware but won't admit it.
"No one at Lloyds seems to know, or worse, seems at all interested, and despite repeated requests have heard absolutely nothing from them.
"This cup is pre-English Civil War and is extremely rare because during the war, the majority of the country's silver was melted to pay the troops, and therefore could be very valuable; in excess of £4,000."

Bishop of London on creating new churches: "We're programmed to say yes"
Thu 01 Oct 2015
By Marcus Jones
The Bishop of London has told Premier he's "programmed to say yes" when people give him ideas on how to grow the Church.
In an interview on the subject of evangelism, Rt Revd Richard Chartres said he's constantly looking to form new worshipping communities.
He was speaking to Premier ahead of delivering a lecture at Lambeth Palace on the theme of evangelism and witness.
While attendances across the Church of England are reported to be marginally falling, the Church in London is said to be bucking the trend.
Speaking about how his diocese turned things around, he said: "We were in a pretty dire and depressed state in the early 1990s.
"There were financial difficulties; there was a problem of morale. There was faction; there was division.
"By painful incremental change, the conditions came about for a transformation of the morale.
"There's [now] an enormous 'can do' sense in the diocese which has actually grown quite significantly. The electoral role has doubled since 1990."
The Diocese of London is almost half way through a project called Capital Vision 2020 which is looking to continue the growth. The diocese is focussing on becoming a Church which is Christ-centred and outward looking.

Archbishop Justin Welby to accept refugees at Lambeth Palace
The Archbishop of Canterbury has offered to house Syrian refugees at his official London residence.
Most Revd Justin Welby has said there is room for one or two families in a 4-bedroomed cottage at Lambeth Palace.

Tt was something the archbishop has been considering for "a while", according to Lambeth Palace.
His gesture follows a similar move by the Catholic church after Pope Francis said two refugee families would move into Vatican housing.
Britain is taking 20,000 refugees from the camps on the borders of Syria over the next five years.

A Lambeth spokeswoman said: "As a Christian who leads the Church of England it is something he feels absolutely passionate about.
"As the archbishop has said, Jesus was a refugee, and there are refugees here who are desperate for sanctuary from war-torn places and the archbishop is completely torn about their situation and wants to make a difference."
It's believed the rent for the refugees will be paid for by charitable funds under the archbishop's personal control.

NEW UK LABOUR LEADER CORBYN IS FRIEND OF ISLAMISTS
Jeremy Corbyn, the new leader of The Labour Party, has a slew of associations with Islamist extremists, more than any other leading British politician. Jeremy Corbyn, the new leader of Britian's The Labour Party, has many problematic associations with Islamists and known terrorists. These connections are made all the more galling in the light of his victory in Labour's leadership election, putting him in the position of being the only leader of a major British political party to have called terrorists his “friends.”

A backbench MP for the majority of his career, revelations about his associations began to surface once he was a candidate for the Labour leadership. Presented here is a list of these associations:
In July 2015, his associations with Ibrahim Hewitt made national news. Hewitt is a hardline Islamist preacher who believes that adulterers and apostates should be killed and compared homosexuals to pedophiles. Corbyn described him as “a very good friend.” He visited Gaza with Hewitt’s charity Interpal. Interpal is regarded by the US government as part of the funding network of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate that runs the Gaza Strip. In 2003, the United States government designated Interpal as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” along with several Hamas figures and Hamas supporting charities in Europe.

Tue 08 Sep 2015
By Desmond Busteed
Special prayers have been written by the Church of England to mark the Queen becoming the longest reigning British monarch.
On Wednesday Queen Elizabeth II beats the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria - 63 years and 7 months - more than a century ago.

The Queen is Supreme Governor of the Church of England and her faith has been an important part of her life.
The prayers have been drawn up by the Church's Liturgical Commission and approved by Buckingham Palace to be read at services across the country.
One gives "heartfelt thanks for her service to her people", while another expresses gratitude that "you have given Elizabeth our Queen a heart to serve her people, and have kept her devoted in this service beyond all who were before her".
"She's a person and great faith and great commitment and I think she is I'm sure very thankful for the wonderful degree of health she's had over these many years, [which has] allowed her to give such faithful service," said Minister Ken Mackenzie to Premier, who leads Sunday service at Crathie church, where the royal family worship during visits to their Balmoral.
lacihobo
At Westminster Abbey, where the Queen married the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947 and had her coronation in 1953, bell ringers will also ring a quarter peal at 11.30am for 50 minutes.

Worcester Cathedral will mark the event with a peal of bells entitled 5040 changes of Cambridge Surprise Maximus, starting at midday.
The Bishop of Worcester, the Rt Rev John Inge, said: "This is a very significant day on which Her Majesty the Queen becomes our longest ever reigning monarch, surpassing Queen Victoria.
"I encourage as much ringing as possible in the diocese on that day and during the week as a mark of appreciation not only of the length of the Queen's reign but of her magnificent Christian service throughout it."
The Holy Innocents' Church in Kidderminster is holding a special morning service, followed by the planting of 64 daffodil bulbs to mark the Queen's almost 64 years on the throne.
Chichester Cathedral in West Sussex will ring a three-hour peal on September 10 - the day after the monarch reaches her milestone - starting at just after 1pm.

A Christian-Zionist Revolution is Brewing in Britain
A new group is looking to emulate the success of the Christian pro-Israel movement in America - and they are rapidly succeeding.
Christian supporters of Israel rally in LondonMordecai Voice
When it comes to Christian Zionism, most people think of the United States - and with good cause. Groups like Christians United For Israel (CUFI) have been among the leading lights in Israel advocacy, with a highly motivated and active grassroots base and support from a diverse range of senior clergymen and women. In terms of numbers, they outstrip even their Jewish pro-Israel counterparts, and in terms of commitment and activism, they often put them to shame.

Less well-known are the Christian Zionist movements outside of the US, for example in Europe. This fact is also, to an extent, not without good cause: for a variety of reasons, Christian Zionists in Europe, while certainly active, have never managed to emulate the success of their American counterparts.
But that could be about to change. In the UK, something of a revolution is brewing, thanks to the vision and tireless efforts of one quietly-determined pastor in reaching out to both Christian and Jewish communities alike.
Dr. Oliver Manyemba is a Pentecostal Christian pastor, as well as a trained investment banker and lecturer at a top London university. He is also a one-man powerhouse who is shaking up the face of UK Christian Zionism - and, by extension, both wider Israel activism and Jewish-Christian community relations.
Born in Zimbabwe, Manyemba was active for several years in some of the more established Christian Zionist organizations in London, but noticed a frustrating trend: while longstanding groups were indeed working hard to fight Israel's corner, they were doing so without reaching beyond a very narrow demographic base of white, middle-aged (or older) Church of England Christians. Millions of potentially sympathetic Christians, most notably among Black and Asian communities, were not being reached, and Manyemba resolved to fix that.
It was at that point that our paths first crossed, some three years ago. At the time, this author was also on the London pro-Israel activist scene, and as part of efforts to cultivate ties with non-Jewish allies I was introduced to Oliver, who was looking to study the Bible's authentic Jewish interpretations. Apart from becoming my first (and so far only) Christian Bible-study partner, he shared with me his incredibly ambitious vision to mobilize hundreds of thousands of previously un-engaged Christians nationwide to the cause of Israel - a vision which at the time appeared a thousand miles away.
Today, he leads Christian Watchmen over Zion (CWZ), a group that most British Jews will have never heard of, but which is now rapidly realizing that vision by emerging as the fastest-growing pro-Israel movement in the country.
CWZ is mobilizing Christians nationwide Credit: Christian Watchmen over Zion
It is nondenominational, with members spanning the gamut of the confusing mesh of Christian denominations in Britain; from Roman Catholics to Church of England and Eastern Christians. But CWZ's core constituency and driving force is the rapidly-growing Pentecostal movement, particularly among the African and Afro-Caribbean communities.

Its objective is to reconnect Christians to authentic Biblical teachings - most importantly, the place of the cause of Israel or "Zion" and Jerusalem as a central focus of Christian belief. 
And its success in just two years has been staggering, drawing in thousands of grassroots members along with an ever-increasing number of churches and a diverse range Christian leaders.
Dispelling ignorance, standing with Zion
One of them, Archbishop Dr. Abraham C. C. Evangelou, was present along with a larger CWZ delegation at a farewell party for the outgoing Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub last month. It was the largest and most diverse Christian group present, and the only one to include such senior clergy, underlining the central position the group has already taken on the pro-Israel scene.
Evangelou, who started his ministerial career in the Greek Orthodox Church, now heads the Apostolic Christian Church and Ixthus Church Council, the latter of which boasts some two million members worldwide, including 1,500 ordained ministers, and has 40 churches in England alone.
CWZ's core message, he explained, is summed up by the Psalmist: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem."
"Our aim is to educate the Christian world as to the relationship we should be having with Israel, and to build a relationship with our Israeli and Hebrew brethren who are the foundational background to our Christian roots and Christian faith. We feel indebted to them for preserving the Scriptures for us to benefit from."

"CWZ has been received very warmly in my churches, and many of our members have already joined. Many of my bishops who I consecrated have become prominent members of CWZ," he said. "?We also have a good relationship with Christian Friends of Israel, and I work with them too - anything positive, pro-Israel, we support that."

But why, given the prominence of the Land of Israel and its connection to the Jewish people in the Bible, do Christians need educating about it at all?
"Ignorance, misconceptions and also sometimes anti-Semitism," answers Dr. Evangelou.
"The early church had a negative perception of Judaism and the Jewish people," he notes, rejecting out of hand the replacement theology still found in some corners today, including most of those which gravitate towards the anti-Israel movement. "We're disqualifying that perception and showcasing all the good things about Israel and the Jewish people. I believe education is the most important thing, and that discredits any prejudice, racism or anti-Semitism."
That message - reconnecting to the Bible's "Hebrew roots," rejecting replacement theology (and with it the imperative to proselytize Jews), and focusing on the centrality of the Holy Land in Christian doctrine - is to a great extent the driving-force of contemporary Christian Zionism, from major groups such as CUFI to emerging innovators like Hayovel. 
Oliver Manyemba's vision for CWZ is to be the doctrinal or ideological powerhouse of that movement. 
What that requires, first and foremost, is to "open Christians' eyes" to the real-life application of the Bible. It might sound strange, but even many church-going, Bible-believing Christians often fail to associate the "Israel" of the Bible with the real thing. 
"In Zimbabwe, when we prayed for the peace of Jerusalem, we thought of our families or our village. But that's not what God had in mind - He was talking about the real, physical Jerusalem!" Manyemba explains.
It's a message echoed by another prominent CWZ leader, Bishop E. O’Reilly Buchanan - one of the most senior Christian clergy involved in the movement. A charismatic speaker and humanitarian activist, he oversees churches from the UK to Nigeria and Zimbabwe.

He describes CWZ as a movement whose emergence is long overdue. "It's like an oasis, a glass of cool water after journeying in the desert."

But Bishop Buchanan also emphasizes that the potential was always there. Quoting the Biblical Prophet Hosea ("My people perish for lack of knowledge") he too insisted that ignorance, rather than hatred or conscious anti-Israel sentiment, was responsible for the lack of active support for Israel among many Christians.
CWZ's rapid success (their bi-annual conferences attract thousands already, including both Jewish and Christian community figures) is merely the logical result of opening people's eyes to the truth, he said. "It's like a spring that comes up from the ground - even if you block it, it will always find a way to burst forth."

Another key to their success is a focus on young blood. Reverend Jacqueline Brown, a pastor of Jamaican origin, runs CWZ's Youth Program.

She also regularly takes Christian groups to visit Israel - something she believes is a must for any self-respecting Christian supporter of Israel.
"Standing with Israel means physically going there as well, to experience the holy sites, the people, the land, and to connect with them," she explained.
That includes places like Shiloh, Bet El, Har Grizim and other key Biblical sites in Judea and Samaria. One thing all the CWZ activists I met had in common was their rejection of efforts to delegitimize Israel's presence in those areas, particularly given its centrality in the Biblical - and Jewish-historical - narrative.
A grassroots revolution?
While CWZ's efforts are largely education, the groundswell of pro-Israel sentiment it is fomenting is encouraging an emerging grassroots movement of Christian activists on the ground.
Pastor Tim Gutman founded "Mordecai Voice" several years ago, with the single aim of "standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Israel and the Jewish community." His inspiration for the movement - as its name hints - is the Biblical Mordechai's fateful words to Queen Esther, which he says underlines the role Christians should take in supporting Israel: "For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?"
Like CWZ it seemed to emerge out of nowhere, and its first event (in 2011) saw an eclectic mix of Christians joined by a handful of curious Jewish activists at a solidarity rally for Israel outside the British parliament.

Gutman - whose father was a Jewish refugee from Europe - says he's greatly encouraged by the sudden invigoration of the UK Christian-Zionist scene. While not formally linked, his group now works closely with CWZ, and he hopes the movement will swell in numbers, giving a sometimes embattled, demoralized Jewish community (at least vis-a-vis Israel activism) a much-needed boost.

"I feel the work of groups like CWZ and the Israel Key conference [another emerging Christian pro-Israel group - ed.] are seeing a groundswell of unprecedented support for Israel and there is a real sense of optimism that this will translate into a louder and louder voice of love for Israel - the kind America enjoys today," he said.
"We have a real sense of excitement at the growing love and understanding among the Christian Community for the importance of Israel and our passion is to see us proclaim this publicly, so the Jewish community will know and of course Israel will know: we stand with you shoulder to shoulder."
As part of those efforts, Mordecai Voice holding a solidarity rally in Golders Green, the heart of London's Jewish community, on September 20. The date was picked to coincide with the latest planned installment of neo-Nazi activities targeting British Jews. Although previous far-right efforts flopped spectacularly, Gutman says it's clear British Jewry is under attack, usually from the same people who constantly vilify the Jewish state.
"Our aim is to show the Jewish community both in the UK and of course Israel that there are thousands upon thousands of Christians who support, love and believe in them," he said. "We want to see Christian and Jewish groups united to proclaim publicly that Israel is not alone and the Jewish community are not alone in the face of increasing anti-Israel rhetoric and blatant anti-Semitism."
To his fellow Christians his message is simple: put your money where your mouth is and be active.
"Lots of Christians say 'Yeah, we love Israel,' so we're telling them: Come out and show your love!"

EXCLUSIVE: Lord Carey speaks out about support for assisted dying
The former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has explained why he has changed his mind on assisted dying.
Fri 07 Aug 2015
By Antony Bushfield
The former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has explained why he has changed his mind on assisted dying.

In a video released exclusively to Premier the senior Anglican clergyman said he felt he had to explain to his friends who were "very surprised" and "very disappointed".
"The first is the fact of pain," he said, "We have in this country one of the finest palliative care systems in the world, there's no doubt about that."
He added: "Never the less, in spite of that, people do suffer and many cancer patients experience excruciating pain.
"Secondly there's the issue of fear. People have said we're afraid of where the legislation might end up, it might lead to very vulnerable people being abused by very cruel and greedy relatives.
"But we can construct laws that are strong, that are resistant and I believe that the unintended consequence is a really bad way of opposing the bill.
1.38 min VIDEO
Lord Carey announced he had changed his mind on assisted dying in July 2014 and said he would support legislation that would make it legal for terminally ill people in England and Wales to receive help to end their lives.

The bill he had backed didn't have enough time to progress through parliament before the election but has now been brought again by Labour MP Rob Marris.
It will go a vote in the House of Commons on 11 September. MPs will have a free vote on the issue, meaning they will not have to agree with their party.
Under the plans two doctors would have to independently confirm the patient was terminally ill and had reached their own, informed decision to die.
Many Christian charities have condemned the proposals and the current Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby previously said assisted dying was "mistaken and dangerous".
Lord Carey has now joined the Dignity in Dying campaign which has released the video exclusively to Premier.
He added: "To say that we are suffering with you is, in my view, a very poor argument indeed.
"There's nothing noble about excruciating pain and I think we need as a nation to give people the right to decide their own fate.
"In my view it is a profoundly Christian and moral thing to devise a law that enables people if they so choose to end their lives with dignity."
The Church of England said it could not support the bill and that Lord Carey was entitled to his own opinion but added that the current archbishop had been clear of his view.

A General Synod motion to oppose the bill was unanimously passed.
A statement from the Church said: "We believe that the Assisted Dying Bill has the potential to damage both the wellbeing of individuals and the nature and shape of our society.
"If enacted, the Assisted Dying Bill would put at risk many more vulnerable people than it seeks to help.
"Every person's life is of immeasurable value and ought to be affirmed, respected and cherished by society. This is true even when some people no longer view their own lives as being of any further value."
The Church is encouraging parishioners to write to MPs to express the opposition to the Bill.

Christians condemn euthanasia show at Edinburgh's Fringe
Fri 07 Aug 2015
By Antony Bushfield
Christian campaigners are condemning the decision to let a comedy show about euthanasia go ahead at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The show - named ''Dicing With Doctor Death'', which claims to look at the funny side of the right to die debate, had faced attempts to get it pulled.
The one-man show by Dr Philip Nitschke, who has helped four people die in his native Australia, features tips and advice on how to commit suicide.
He told Sky News: "I've noticed in the public meetings I've been holding over the years that you always get the message across in a much more palatable way if you can make it amusing.
"I'm not making fun of the 'right to die' debate. I'm putting it out there as one of the cutting-edge social issues of our time. What's amusing is that we as a society can't deal with it."
Police had raised concerns about the show, along with council officials, that it may breach UK laws.
It is illegal to assist someone to commit suicide in the UK and this would include telling them how to kill themselves.
Dr Gordon MacDonald from Christian charity CARE told Premier's News Hour despite the show being on at a comedy festival, it was far from a joke.
He said: "It's a very serious matter. Basically we're talking about giving people advice as to how to kill themselves and that's not a laughing matter, it's quite concerning.
"Clearly people may be depressed who are going along or they may have other mental health issues."
Audience members will sign a disclaimer saying they will not use the methods spoken about to commit suicide.
But Dr MacDonald said that wasn't "worth the paper it was written on".
"It's not appropriate for it be put on," he added. "They wouldn't tolerate somebody putting on a show that was advocating suicide bombings at the fringe, that would be seen as a criminal offence, the police would investigate it and I don't see that there's a huge difference with this show".

How did Anjem Choudary become a hate preacher?
By Jeremy Morgan -  August 7, 2015 0
Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter  
Anjem Choudary has over the last few years, perhaps become the world’s most famous Western based Islamic hate preacher. He has become the media’s go-to-man for the Islamic ‘extremist’ opinion, or simply the Islamic opinion, in his own profession.

How did Choudary become a hate preacher? Did he come to the United Kingdom along with his family as a child refugee, facing poverty, adversity, discrimination and social alienation at every turn? Well, as it turns out, no.
Choudary was born in the UK, and his father worked as a market trader. Young Anjem attended school, like any typical child, however, post secondary school he enrolled into Southampton University as a medical student.
Anjem (known then as Andy) was well known for his partying, which is probably the reason why he failed his first year. Anjem is not the first person to do such a thing, in what has become quite a cliche in the university experience. Nor is he the first person to ever find ‘religion’ after a bit of lust and debauchery.
Anjem never completed his medical training, but opted for law instead, becoming a solicitor.
Now, this does not sound like the story of someone who has suffered from social injustices and isolation. On the contrary, Anjem had a lot of friends and was well on the way to a successful career and life.
In many respects, Anjem has had a rather normal, if slightly privileged background and upbringing. He was born and grew up in a nation which had embraced his immigrant family, and provided free and good quality healthcare and education, giving him every opportunity for flourishing and personal fulfillment.
So what on earth went wrong?
It is this very question that is perplexing the West, if we can even ask it.
Of course, a major part of the problem in our dealing with extremist Islam is that we are not asking this particular question, and when we do, we are providing ‘ready made’, prescriptive answers which often assume problems that aren’t Hate preacher Anjem Choudary during his university days.there, whilst ignoring the real ones that are.
We assume that people such as Choudary suffer marginalisation, are uneducated, and are easily impressionable, and in a last ditch effort to find a sense of meaning, purpose and belonging in life find it in things like extremist Islam.
But this is certainly not the case for Choudary, nor is it the case for many others. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, likewise has not had a life of oppression and few opportunities, but is in fact a scholar with a doctorate in Islamic Studies. Likewise, Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda and the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks came from a very wealthy Saudi oil family. Oppression and alienation are not behind the experiences of these men.
Rather, Choudary, and others of his ilk have consciously and decisively rejected everything that the West stands for. Indeed, Choudary rejects the nation and culture which raised and nurtured him. What on earth has caused this aggressive and treacherous reaction from people like Choudary?
A significant part has to do with the fact that Western culture has been undermining itself for the last few generations. It has offered the younger generations a vision of fulfillment through material and sensual consumption, and a vague, new age spirituality to believe in. In fact, the only things that people are allowed to believe in in the modern West are are those of little or no consequence. A Church of England faith that is more interested in polite cups of tea, than Jesus, or ‘interesting’ foreign religions that celebrates things such as art and dance rather than rigid caste systems or human sacrifice. Whilst multiculturalism celebrates all cultures as being ‘equally valuable’, the flip side is that all cultures are equally worthless.
What is behind the hate preaching of Choudary and others is partly a protest against the West, but it is not a protest against the things that we normally presume. Choudary and others are protesting against the vacuousness and the corruption that has beset the West in recent generations. The West needs to admit that it has failed to impart on him (indeed several younger generations of Westerners) a sense of cultural identity, and to give him anything of profound existential ‘worth’. The West has not only lost its religious faith, but also its cultural faith.
However, this is not all that there is behind the hate preaching of Islamic extremists, nor is it the sole cause.
Islamic extremism is not simply a knee jerk reaction against the failure of the West to teach and impart its culture. Islamism is a movement with its thinkers and scholars – many of them are their leaders. It is a movement dedicated to reform Islam, and to return it to its more pure form before Western and medieval accretion and corruption. As a movement, with its seeds going back to the 19th Century.
Indeed, in Islamism we are not seeing an extreme or distorted presentation of Islam, as many Western leaders and commentators often like to purport, but rather, we are seeing a more pure form which reforms and returns Islam directly to the life andAnjem_choudaryteaching of Mohammed.
For the West to win this war, it needs to offer a better alternative to the ugly brutality of Islamism. To be quite frank, that shouldn’t be too hard. But in order to do this, the West must regain its nerve and its self-confidence. The West must stop apologising for itself, and start celebrating the fact that Western culture represents the greatest, most successful and freest culture in all history.
Then will win the cultural battle against Islamism, and give people like Anjem Choudary, and others something to belong to and believe in.
