UK Cancels Prince Charles’ First State Visit to Israel
By Abra Forman May 8, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Mercy and truth preserve the king; and his throne is upheld by mercy.” Proverbs 20:28 (The Israel Bible™)

The United Kingdom has cancelled a state visit to Israel by monarch Prince Charles, allegedly due to concerns over alienating the region’s Arab states, the Jewish Chronicle reported on Monday. A British military official said in response to the decision that it constituted “pandering” to the Arab nations.

President Reuven Rivlin originally invited a member of the British royal family to visit Israel during a meeting with UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson in March. According to reports, Prince Charles accepted the invitation, though the visit was never officially announced.

It would have been the first official state visit made by a British royal. Though members of the royal family have visited Israel on personal business – Prince Charles came to Jerusalem last September to attend the funeral of President Shimon Peres – they have traditionally turned down official invitations extended by the government.

The visit would have coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration and included a ceremony commemorating the 16,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died in the 1917 Palestine Campaign, said the Jewish Chronicle.

Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of British forces in Afghanistan and friend of Israel, decried the cancellation, accusing the UK Foreign Office’s Royal Visits Committee, ostensibly behind the move, of “pandering” to Arab dictators.

The decision to disallow Prince Charles’ visit is an “insult to British war dead”, Kemp charged.

The cancellation seems to have been largely political; it is unlikely that Prince Charles himself was involved. Indeed, Charles has his own family ties to Israel: when in Jerusalem, the prince, who wore a kippah emblazoned with his royal seal during Peres’ funeral, took the opportunity to visit the grave of his grandmother, Princess Alice of Battenburg, buried on the Mount of Olives.

UK: Jews Kicked Out of Labour’s Pro-Palestinian Event
UK: Jews kicked out of Labour’s pro-Palestinian event
April 30, 2017
UK: Jews kicked out of Labour’s pro-Palestinian eventMP Mark Hendrick (Twitter)
Police booted Jewish activists from an event hosted by a Labour MP in Parliament after they asked “disruptive questions.”

Police booted Jewish activists from an event hosted by a Labour Member of Parliament (MP) last week after they asked “disruptive questions,” the British Daily Mail reported over the weekend.

MP Mark Hendrick chaired the pro-Palestinian event in Parliament on Tuesday, organized by the controversial Palestine Return Centre (PRC), which has been linked with Palestinian terror elements, including the Hamas terror group.

The main event speaker was Kamal Hawwash of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, who used his speech to call Israel “an expert at inciting hatred.”

At a previous Labour event, he said he considered a man who stabbed two Israelis to death, and injured a woman and toddler, to be a “martyr” carrying out an “act of revenge.”

He was referencing Muhannad Halabi, who in October 2015 stabbed and murdered Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi, a father of seven, and Aharon Benita, and injured Benita’s wife, Adele, and their two-year-old son as they were returning from prayer at the Kotel, the Western Wall. He was subsequently killed by Israeli security forces.

If people find his actions “unacceptable,” he said, “that’s up to them.”

Biased Anti-Israel Panel at the British Parliament

The Jewish activists challenged the presentations during the question-and-answer session. In response, Hendrick summoned police armed with machine guns to eject them, leaving them “shaken and upset.”

Titled “The Question of Jerusalem: Occupation, Discrimination and Displacement,” the event offered Palestinian perspectives on Israeli conduct in the city. No pro-Israel speakers were on the panel.

In a recording of the question-and-answer session, one person can be heard saying: “What I find very concerning is the bias of a panel in the House of Commons,” to which Hendrick responded: “This is a Palestinian Return Centre meeting. It is not supposed to be a cross-section of views.”
Another person stated that “it’s particularly sickening that in half an hour we didn’t hear one reference to [Israel’s] safety and security.”
Another added: ‘Hamas is a terrorist organization that murders people in the same way that innocents were murdered outside our houses of Parliament here.’

A heated exchange ensued, during which Hendrick accused the activists of being disruptive.

The MP then demanded that armed officers “take them out of here,” while an audience member protests, “I asked a question, I didn’t say anything wrong.”
According to the Daily Mail, four Jewish activists were thrown out of Portcullis House by seven armed officers, who took their details before releasing them without charges.

The activists told the Daily Mail that they were left “shaken and upset.”

“I was thinking, oh my God, I feel it’s really wrong to be told to leave for just giving my opinions,” said Mandy Blumenthal, 52, a member of West Midlands Friends of Israel. “But I saw a policeman with a machine gun and I didn’t want to argue.”

“The House of Commons is supposed to be the heart of free speech. But this Labour MP wanted it to be an echo chamber, not a debating chamber,” she added.

Another activist, Jonathan Hoffman, said that “the evening was peppered with false facts, innuendo and downright lies. Parliamentary facilities were being used to create a platform for hate and anti-Semitism.”

“These four activists have been going to every single meeting, always causing disruption, barring civilized debate and discussion. They came intentionally to make trouble. They coordinated their shouting and disruptive questions together,” a spokesman for the PRC claimed.

When questioned by the Daily Mail, Hendrick claimed he did not know the views of the pro-Palestinian speakers when he agreed they could speak. He further claimed that he was unaware of their past pro-terrorism comments.

“I regret hosting the meeting because it turned out the way it did,” he conceded.

When asked whether he regretted working with the PRC, he said, ‘”Don’t put words into my mouth. Those people were being deliberately disruptive, asking disruptive questions.”

Bomb Shelters in the UK Mapped Out Amid Fears Of Coming War
APRIL 29, 2017
Fears of World War 3 are gripping the world at the moment, with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un squaring up to American President Donald Trump. Express.co.uk has mapped deep level shelters across the UK in the case of WW3. There are eight deep level shelters in the UK, and all of them are in London, far down underneath Underground stations. This is unlike nuclear shelters, which are dotted across the UK.
The eight are at Chancery Lane, Belsize Park, Camden Town, Goodge Street, Clapham North, Clapham Common, Clapham South and Stockwell. Built during World War II, two more were planned at St. Paul’s and Oval, but these were not completed. The buildings above St.Paul’s were not considered stable enough, and difficult ground conditions at Oval stopped building work there. Each shelter consists of a pair of parallel tunnels 5.05m in diameter and 370m long.

APRIL 29, 2017
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hurt the “dignity of the supreme leadership” of North Korea, state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Saturday. The comment was in reaction to Israeli remarks on how the Jewish State is affected by North Korean tension with the United States. In an interview with Hebrew news site Walla this week, the hawkish Liberman stated that North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is a madman and that together with the leaders of
Iran and Syria was part of an “insane and radical” gang that was bent on undermining international stability.”The reckless remarks of the Israeli defense minister are sordid and wicked behavior and grave challenge to the DPRK [North Korea],” the North Korean statement read. The statement also claimed that Israel, while working with the US, was the Middle East’s only illegal owner of nuclear weapons.

Trump Jr. Criticizes London Mayor After Deadly Attack

It has become something of an online custom in the social media age to react to tragic news stories — like Wednesday’s attack in London — with well-meaning if sometimes rote messages like “thoughts and prayers.” But that does not appear to be Donald Trump Jr.’s style.

“You have to be kidding me?!” Mr. Trump said Wednesday afternoon on Twitter, as details of the episode — which left at least five dead, including the assailant, and 40 injured — continued to unfold. The message continued, “Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.”

Mr. Trump, the oldest son of President Trump, was calling attention to an article from September in The Independent, a British newspaper, that described Mr. Khan’s reaction to a bombing then in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

Mr. Trump mischaracterized the London mayor’s remarks. Mr. Khan did not describe terrorism as “part of living in a big city,” as if bombings and shootings were an inescapable fact of life. He said that terrorism preparedness, including providing sufficient support to the police, was “part and parcel of living in a great global city.”

“That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities; it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice,” Mr. Khan said in a video interview published by The Evening Standard, another British paper. (For the record, Mr. Khan did say the victims of the Chelsea bombing were in his “thoughts and prayers.”)

“Nothing is more important to me than keeping Londoners safe,” Mr. Khan added. “I want to be reassured that every single agency and individual involved in protecting our city has the resources and expertise they need to respond in the event that London is attacked.”

On Thursday morning, Mr. Khan said in an interview on CNN that he would not respond to Mr. Trump’s tweet because he had “been doing far more important things over the last 24 hours.”

“What I do know is that the threat level in London and across the country is severe,” he said. “That means an attack is highly likely. I was in New York last year when there was an attack in New York. And terrorists hate the fact that whether it’s New York, whether it’s London, whether it’s Paris, whether its Brussels, whether it’s Istanbul, whether it’s Madrid, we have diverse communities living together peacefully.”

Mr. Trump’s tweet was not well received by Britons, who were still learning details of the attack when he weighed in. On Twitter, Wes Streeting, a member of Parliament from the Labour Party, accused Mr. Trump of capitalizing on the attack in London and called him “a disgrace.”

Ciaran Jenkins, a correspondent for Britain’s Channel 4, asked the president’s son on Twitter if he thought his remarks were “helpful.”

“Did you even read the article before goading London’s Mayor during a live incident?” he wrote. He added, “Headline is based on very first sentence, which if you’d bothered to read it could apply to any major city in the world. Key word: ‘threat.’ ”

Mr. Trump declined to elaborate later on Wednesday. “I’m not going to comment on every tweet I send,” he said in an email.

Political violence in the United Kingdom is relatively rare. Decades of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland often spilled over, but there had not been a large-scale attack in Britain since 2005, when more than 50 people died in subway and bus attacks.

Children Must Be Taught Transgenderism, Homosexuality Starting in Nursery School, Teachers Say
An organization of teachers in the U.K. has argued that homosexuality and transgenderism should be taught to young children starting in nursery school.
Members of the National Union of Teachers group voted for a measure at a conference in Cardiff to "campaign to ensure a comprehensive age-appropriate content including promotion of LGBT+ matters for all schools from nursery throughout all phases of state education," The Evening Telegraph reported on Tuesday.

Annette Pryce, a NUT executive member from Buckinghamshire, claimed that the U.K. government hasn't been doing enough to promote inclusion.

"Those generations of young LGBT people who have been failed by the system are still not told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too," Pryce said.

"The NUT ... needs to ensure that SRE is inclusive to LGBT young people now and forever."

Education Secretary Justine Greening announced back in March that age appropriate sex and relationships guidance is to be made compulsory for all children, though it allowed parents and faith schools to opt out of the new rules.

U.K. ministers have been facing "mounting pressure" to respond to concerns that children are not being educated about online porn, cyber bullying and sexting, the Telegraph said.

Conservatives, such as Andrea Williams, chief executive at Christian Concern, have warned that teaching statutory sex education to 4-year-olds can be "devastating" and risks "robbing them of their innocence," however.

"Children [age 4] should not be introduced to this. Schools need to be safe places where the innocence of children is protected," Williams said in February.

More than quarter of UK’s birds at risk of extinction
APRIL 13, 2017
More than a quarter of the UK’s birds are struggling to survive, with species including curlews and puffins now joining the at-risk list, according to a new report. Entries to the UK’s ‘red list’ of endangered birds – those in urgent need of conservation – have swelled to 67 species out of a possible 247. Since the last review in 2009, 15 new species have been added to the list,
which is reserved for species in danger of extinction or that have seen a sharp drop in population or habitat in recent years. The report comes from the RSPB, British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), together with UK government conservation agencies. The curlew, Europe’s largest and most distinctive wading bird, is among those added to the red list, with numbers falling 64 percent from 1970 to 2014.

Jerusalem stabbing: British woman killed close to Old City
Woman in her 20s allegedly killed by Palestinian assailant on light railway near Old City
A British woman in her early 20s has been stabbed to death in Jerusalem as thousands of Jewish and Christian pilgrims descended on the city’s holy sites for Good Friday and the Passover holiday.

The attack, which police said involved a Palestinian assailant, took place on the city’s light railway, not far from the Old City. According to witnesses, paramedics at the scene attempted to give CPR to the unconscious victim, who had been stabbed in the chest several times.

The tram was approaching its stop when the attacker stood up abruptly, produced a knife and launched his attack on the woman who was next to him.

Despite efforts to provide first aid, authorities at the Hadassah hospital Mount Scopus later announced that the woman had died of her injuries shortly after being admitted.

A police spokesman told the Guardian that it appeared that the woman was a British citizen visiting Israel.

The British embassy said it was in touch with local authorities following the stabbing, but could not comment beyond that.

The alleged attacker was arrested at the scene after being overpowered. Reports described him as a 57-year-old East Jerusalem resident from the Palestinian Ras al-Amoud neighbourhood who has a criminal record and also suffers from mental health problems including a recent attempt to kill himself.

Video footage from the immediate aftermath of the attack showed the assailant being wrestled to the ground by police and bystanders and disarmed outside the carriage of the tram.

Photographs issued by police showed the weapon used in the attack, a large wooden-handled kitchen knife.

Describing the attacker, later identified in the local media as Jamil Tamimi, Yoram Halevi, a police commander in the city, told Israel radio that the suspect had a history of domestic violence, sexual assault and mental illness that had seen him hospitalised.

“We can say the terrorist is relatively old, 57 years of age,” Halevi said. “He is very mentally unstable.”

Echoing Halevi’s remarks, a statement issued by the Israeli domestic security service, the Shin Bet, said the attacker was known as being a troubled individual who was known to authorities.

The statement also speculated that the motive for the attack may have also involved “suicide by soldier”, which has been apparent in other incidents in the last 18 months. “This is another incident of many in which a Palestinian suffering from mental health or personal issues has chosen to carry out an attack as a way out of his problems,” it suggested.

Police had been on high alert for Passover, with 1,500 officers on duty in the city, when tens of thousands of Jews pray at the Western Wall inside the Old City and some visit the flashpoint al-Aqsa mosque compound above it.

The compound, which is the third holiest site in Islam and the holiest site to Jews, who refer to it as the Temple Mount, is the source of tensions.

Large numbers of Jewish worshippers have marked Passover in the city, a festival which began on Monday evening and continues for seven days. Friday is sometimes a day of heightened tensions in Jerusalem’s Old City when tens of thousands of Muslim worshippers come to pray at the al-Aqsa mosque compound.

In addition, on Good Friday each year, Christians hold a procession along the Via Dolorosa in the Old City, retracing what they believe was the route that Jesus took to his crucifixion.

A wave of unrest that erupted in October 2015 has claimed the lives of 260 Palestinians, 41 Israelis, two Americans, one Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese, according to an AFP count.

Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, the Israeli authorities say. Others were shot dead during protests or clashes, while some were killed in Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Although the violence had greatly subsided in recent months, there have been three attacks in the run up to, and during, Passover.

Commenting on the attack, Israel’s president, Reuben Rivlin, said he was “filled with sadness” at the “terrible news”.

“This week, thousands have come through the ancient gates of Jerusalem to celebrate the feasts of Passover and Easter throughout the city – while the security forces work to ensure the safety of the dear residents and visitors to the city. And so we will continue to do.”

What a New Exhibit Reveals About Britain’s Relationship With Islam
Home > World > UK
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Screenshot from V&A website. (Photo: V&A Museum)
John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) was a British Imperialist artisan, designer and curator. His life and work was to collect, curate and promote Indian art and design, mainly in the Muslim-majority Punjab region, which is now divided between Pakistan and India.

From January 14 to April 2 2017, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London held an exhibition entitled Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London.

The exhibition featured chairs, prints, wall hangings and other pieces of art either collected by Kipling or produced by him or in collaboration with him. A movie played on a screen highlighted some of the grandeur in Lahore, capital of the Punjab region.

It touched in passing on the impact on Indian manufacturing of Kipling’s work, which to a large extent was collecting and copying Indian designs later to be mass produced cheaply in factories in the English Midlands, harming local producers.

The exhibition also highlighted the work of several Indian artists and showed Kipling’s work creating “Indian Rooms” for his royal patron. Several other contemporary Indian artists were also highlighted in the exhibition.

The central takeaway from the exhibition is to reassess the relationship Western countries have with Islamic communities. Britain, along with other Western countries such as the United States, has a long history with Islam. The British Muslim community today is largely, although by no means exclusively, of Pakistani descent. Extricating contemporary issues of integration and extremism from Britain’s imperial past is impossible. This does not mean that extremism is simply a blowback against colonial policies or that everything is the fault of the West. The exhibition showed how good work and enriching cultural exchange can and did happen even in a context of imperialist exploitation and racial oppression. Positive strains taking place within that context cannot be ignored either.

Kipling founded the Journal of Indian Art which promoted the work of Indian artists even as the empire benefited from their work. As the exhibition rightly notes, his life and work are still controversial in India today.

We have to honor the long shared history of interchange and interaction without denying either the racist and exploitative policies of the 19th century or the many individual cases of positive interaction which took place.

Awareness of and engagement with this long history will help efforts to improve integration. By moving the discourse away from one of focusing on antagonistic dynamics of counter-extremism on the one hand and racist oppression on the other we can edge relations towards a healthier dynamic of cultural interchange.

Evangelical Veterans Partner With Israelis In Marijuana Med Tech
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 10, 2017 , 10:30 am
“Hashem doth build up Yerushalayim, He gathereth together the dispersed of Yisrael, Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 (The Israel Bible™)

A California based firm run by Evangelical Special Forces veterans has partnered with an Israeli bio-tech company to develop cannabis-based solutions for a wide range of health concerns.
Zytecur, based in Hollister California, joined forces with Ilan Bio, an agro-biotechnology company located in Givat Chen in central Israel. Six of the founding members of Zycatur are ex-Special Forces in the U.S. military, a number of whom saw combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and were wounded.
“There’s really no other way to put it how this all came about other than the fact that God ordained us to have a successful enterprise,”Chris Clark, a founder of Zytecur, said in an interview with Benito Link. Zycatur is building their new 5,000 square meter base of operations in San Benito.

Clark is enthusiastic about partnering with Israelis.
“The consistency of the technology that the Israelis developed offers this industry solution not to just for California, but to the entire federally-regulated cannabis laws that are going to be put into affect,” Clark said. “It’s a well thought-out, tactical look at how to regulate medicalized cannabis that focuses on the medical efficacy of a plant. They’ve been studying it much longer than any other country.”
Liam Gal-Om, the CEO of Ilan Bio, was equally enthusiastic, noting that Israeli legislation has allowed this burgeoning medical technology to develop.
“We have one of the most forward-thinking governments in the world for cannabis,” he said in an interview to Israeli–Cannabis. “Israel is at the forefront for clinical trials, patent registration and now export, allowing for the medical cannabis industry here to evolve to pharma-scale for size and quality.”
Last month, an Israeli government committee took the first steps towards advancing legislation to allow the export of medical marijuana products, aiming to encourage new investment and innovation in the field, while boosting its agricultural sector.
Zytecur has signed America’s first and only contract with the U.S. Government through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) through the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. One of the many ailments they hope to address is post-traumatic stress disorder, a serious illness that plagues many of US veterans.

A father, mother and their two-year-old son have suffered burns following an acid attack in north London.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the assault on the family in Islington at about 1pm on Saturday that left the father with “life-changing” injuries, police said.

The trio were found with injuries after a strong acid was thrown on them, the London fire brigade said.

The father was named on the neighbouring Barnsbury estate as Hai. He is a longtime resident of the area and a father of two, with a child aged about 11 as well as a toddler. His brother was believed to live on the estate and he lived nearby with his mother, neighbours said.

One woman, who said she had known him for 20 years, said she believed he had been deliberately targeted. Another neighbour reported seeing someone run away in the immediate aftermath.

Murat Kayran, a local shopkeeper, told reporters that people had rushed in to buy water to help treat the chemical burns.

“They were a Chinese family. A woman frantically ran in here when it happened and said: ‘There’s been an acid attack’,” he said.

“She bought one bottle at first and then after that bought three more [1.5-litre] bottles of water. Then a gentleman came in and bought another three ... It’s such a scary thing to happen.”

At the scene of the attack, grit was spread on the pavement where the emergency services had cleared up the chemicals.

Police were called by the London ambulance service to reports of the attack on Copenhagen Street, near Charlotte Terrace.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “The victims – a 40-year-old father, a 36-year-old mother and their two-year-old boy – were found with injuries consistent with a noxious substance, believed to be an acid, being thrown at them.

“They were initially taken to a north London hospital and were subsequently transferred to another hospital.

“The man’s injuries, whilst not believed to be life-threatening, are being treated as life-changing. The woman and child suffered minor injuries but remain in hospital at this time.”

The fire brigade said the adults suffered 15% burns to their hands and bodies while the infant was burnt on his face.

The liquid had a pH reading of one and tests confirmed it was a strong acid and oxidising substance, a spokesman said.

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Muslim Baroness Calls on UK to Prosecute Brits Serving in IDF
Apr 2, 2017
A British Muslim and former politician has called on the UK to prosecute citizens serving in the IDF, equating the Israeli military with ISIS.
Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, a former Conservative party cabinet member who resigned from her post in 2014 because the UK government did not condemn Israel’s counter-terrorism Operation Protective Edge, has called on the British government to prosecute citizens who volunteer to fight in the IDF.
Warsi, a British Muslim, said she was seeking to eliminate a loophole allowing Brits to serve in state armies like those of Israel or Pakistan as well as in non-state militaries such as the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.
“If you go out there and fight for any group, you will be subject to prosecution when you get back. If you go out and fight for Assad, I presume, under our law, that is okay. That can’t be right,” Warsi said in an interview with Middle East Eye.
According to Warsi, anyone who serves in the IDF should be treated as a foreign fighter, much like those who have gone to fight for ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Londonistan: 423 New Mosques; 500 Closed Churches
In another 20 years there are going to be more active Muslims than there are churchgoers in England.
"London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together", according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead "Londonistan", as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital.

No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist. Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate for Literature, was less generous; he called the UK "a cesspit for Islamists".

"Terrorists can not stand London multiculturalism", London's mayor Sadiq Khan said after the recent deadly terror attack at Westminster.

The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Above all, Londonistan, with its new 423 mosques, is built on the sad ruins of English Christianity.

The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter's Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque.

The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church.

Not only buildings are converted, but also people.

The number of converts to Islam has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster.

The Daily Mail published photographs of a church and a mosque a few meters from each other in the heart of London.

At the Church of San Giorgio, designed to accommodate 1,230 worshipers, only 12 people gathered to worship. At the Church of Santa Maria, there were 20.

The nearby Brune Street Estate mosque has a different problem: overcrowding. Its small room and can contain only 100. On Friday, the faithful must pour into the street to pray.

Given the current trends, Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future.

In Birmingham, the second-largest British city, where many jihadists live and orchestrate their attacks, an Islamic minaret dominates the sky.

There are petitions to allow British mosques to call the Islamic faithful to prayer on loudspeakers three times a day.

By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly service will drop to 679,000.

"The new cultural landscape of English cities has arrived; the homogenised, Christian landscape of state religion is in retreat", said Ceri Peach of Oxford University.

While nearly half of British Muslims are under the age of 25, a quarter of Christians are over 65.

"In another 20 years there are going to be more active Muslims than there are churchgoers," said Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society.

Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. During the same period, British mosques have been proliferating.

Between 2012 and 2014, the proportion of Britons who identify themselves as Anglicans fell from 21% to 17%, a decrease of 1.7 million people, while, according to a survey conducted by the respected NatCen Social Research Institute, the number of Muslims has grown by almost a million.

Churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their number will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to mosque on Friday.

Demographically, Britain has been acquiring an increasingly an Islamic face, in places such as Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets.

In 2015, an analysis of the most common name in England showed it was Mohammed, including spelling variations such as Muhammad and Mohammad.

Most important cities have huge Muslim populations: Manchester (15.8%), Birmingham (21.8%) and Bradford (24.7%).

In Birmingham, the police just dismantled a terrorist cell; there is also a greater probability that a child will be born into a Muslim family than into a Christian one.

In Bradford and Leicester, half the children are Muslim. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities.

The change is already taking place. "Londonistan" is not a Muslim majority nightmare; it is a cultural, demographic and religious hybrid in which Christianity declines and Islam advances.

According to Innes Bowen, writing in The Spectator, only two of the 1,700 mosques in Britain today follow the modernist interpretation of Islam, compared with 56% in the United States.

The Wahhabis control six percent of mosques in the UK, while the fundamentalist Deobandi control up to 45%.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg


According to a survey from the Knowledge Center, a third of UK Muslims do not feel "part of British culture."

London is also full of sharia courts. There are officially 100. The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

These new courts are based on the rejection of the inviolability of human rights: the values

of freedom and equality that are the basis of English Common Law.

British personalities keep opening the door to introduce sharia. One of Britain's leading judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural -- which means more Islamic.

Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips also suggested that British law should "incorporate" elements of sharia law.

The British cultural establishment is rapidly capitulating to Islamic fundamentalists in accepting their demands.

British universities are also advancing Islamic law.

The official guidelines of the university, "External speakers in higher education institutions", published by Universities UK, provide that "orthodox religious groups" may separate men and women during events.

At Queen Mary University of London, women had to use a separate entrance and were forced to sit in a room without being able to ask questions or raise their hands -- as in Riyadh or Tehran.

The Islamic Society at the London School of Economics held a gala, in which women and men were separated by a seven-meter panel.

After the attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, recommended self-censorship and "some restraint" in discussing Islam.

The British ambassador in Saudi Arabia, Simon Collis, converted to Islam and completed the pilgrimage to Mecca, the hajj. He now calls himself Haji Collis.

What will be next?

WHY DOES EUROPE HAVE HIGH NUMBERS OF JIHADIS COMPARED TO AMERICA?
“They are waiting to pounce, but using Europe as a test to see how far they can go. More bleeding hearts in Europe. God help us in Canada. Trudeau just passed an anti-islamaphobia law that threatens our free speech about Islam.”
Hundreds of fighters traveled from, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany and the UK to join the ranks of jihadis fighting for Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL). Comparatively, far fewer traveled from the United States. Why?

One explanation is that the U.S.’ model of citizenship is more inclusive than that of European countries. In contrast to ancient powers predicated on shared ethnic and religious histories, the United States offers a something very different: apart from formality of citizenship, anyone can become accepted as an “American” by accepting American values — freedom of speech, belief in the individual’s ability to change their own status and a commitment to personal liberty. Accept these values, America says, and you can be one of us. No matter who you were yesterday, today and tomorrow you can be whoever you want to be.

This foundational premise of America as the land of freedom and opportunity is conducive to integration of immigrants. America doesn’t ask new immigrants to give up their faith or their heritage, it simply asks for an additional commitment to something that can be understood universally.

By contrast, European nationalisms talk about history, ethnicity and faith. These concepts, while powerful and at times positive, can create very exclusionary narratives of nationhood that alienate rather than include new immigrants.

Despite America’s checkered past of racial justice and, recent attempts by European to be tolerant, the national narrative of what it means to be part of the nation is radically different in the United States compared to Europe.

Perhaps this difference can partially explain why America’s Muslims are the most integrated in the world and why, despite state-sponsored policies of multiculturalism, Europe continues to send jihadis to fight for ISIS.

Speaking about the failure of the multiculturalist model in the UK, analyst Sam Westrop writes, “British multiculturalism has encouraged British society to exist as a federation of communities in which each minority community was not required to adopt the values of the majority.”

This segregation of ethnic groups found in European societies also provided the opening for well-funded Islamist countries like Saudi Arabia, to create tremendous inroads into the Muslim communities – through funding mosques, community organizations and the like.

In the name of diversity, Westrop notes, the British government, ironically, encouraged this segregation. The process was further cemented by “offer[ing] taxpayer funds and political legitimacy to anyone who claimed to represent a community.”

Those “community representatives” were inevitably the political activists, funded, in turn, by the extremists.

Former Islamist extremist Ed Husain explains further, “Many Muslims want to live apart from mainstream British society; official government policy has helped them do so. I grew up without any white friends. My school was almost entirely Muslim.

“I had almost no direct experience of ‘British life’ or ‘British institutions.’ So it was easy for the extremists to say to me: ‘You see? You’re not part of British society. You never will be. You can only be part of an Islamic society.’ The first part of what they said was true. I wasn’t part of British society: nothing in my life overlapped with it.”

Writing about the multiculturalist model, Kenan Malik, a British writer of Asian background comments, “Where once [it was] argued that everyone should be treated equally, despite their radical, ethnic, religious or cultural differences, now it pushed the idea that different people should be treated differently because of such differences.”

In the words of Amartya Sen, an Indian economist, “A British Muslim is not asked to act within the civil society or the political arena but as a Muslim. His British identity has to be mediated by his community.”

The contrast to the American ideal of a “melting pot” is striking. It is perhaps one of the most telling explanations of why, in terms of integration, American Muslims are way ahead of their European counterparts.

Tell us your ideas about what you or your community could do to be proactive to foster integration. Do you have a personal story about an integration and what that looked like? Do you think patriotism (as opposed to identity-based on religion) can help promote integration?”

UK Foreign Minister: UN Criticism of Israel’s Bombing of Hezbollah is Absurd
https://unitedwithisrael.org/uk-foreign-minister-un-criticism-of-israels-bombing-of-hezbollah-is-absurd/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=pushengage
Mar 30, 2017
The UN Human Rights Council’s condemnation of Israel while ignoring real atrocities is “a profound absurdity,” UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson stated.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson condemned the United Nations Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) criticism of Israel over its bombing of Hezbollah positions in the Golan Heights.

The Guardian reported Tuesday that Johnson told British Members of Parliament it was “absolutely preposterous” that there should be a motion condemning Israel’s policy in the Golan Heights, when “in that region of Syria we have seen the most appalling barbarity by the Assad regime.”

He called it a “profound absurdity.”

The UK mission to the UN in Geneva recently put the UN “on notice” for its anti-Israel bias, saying that if things do not change, “in the future we will adopt a policy of voting against all resolutions concerning Israel’s conduct.”

“Israel is a population of eight million in a world of seven billion. Yet since its foundation, the human rights council has adopted 135 country-specific resolutions; 68 of which [have been] against Israel. Justice is blind and impartial. This selective focus on Israel is neither. Israel is the only country permanently on the human rights council’s agenda,” the UK mission said in a statement.

The US, too, has threatened to withdraw from the UNHRC. American Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley stated this week that “the era of Israel bashing” at the UN is over.

Johnson also said he opposed state boycotts of goods produced in Judea and Samaria and the Golan Heights, saying the choice should be left to consumers.

Member of British Royal Family to Make First State Visit to Israel, Report Says
British Royal to Make First-Ever State Visit on 100th Balfour Anniversary
By JNS March 12, 2017 , 9:30 am
“Mercy and truth preserve the king; and his throne is upheld by mercy.” (Proverbs 20:28)
A member of the United Kingdom’s royal family is reportedly expected to visit Israel this year, marking the first time a British royal would make an official visit to the Jewish state.
The royal family has traditionally shunned Israeli invitations for official state visits, but members of the family have visited in a personal capacity and to attend dignitaries’ funerals.
While it’s unclear which British royal would visit Israel, it has been speculated it will likely be Charles, Prince of Wales and heir to the throne, who attended the funeral of the late Israeli President Shimon Peres last year in Jerusalem, The Independent reported. The report added that Queen Elizabeth would likely skip the trip due to her advanced age and health concerns.
Earlier this week, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin extended an invitation to the British royal family to visit Israel during his meeting with U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in Jerusalem.
Rivlin proposed that the visit coincide with celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which established British support for the creation of a Jewish state in the Middle East.
“This is a very important year in the history of the relations between Israel and the United Kingdom,” Rivlin said.

JNS.org – A member of the United Kingdom’s royal family is reportedly expected to visit Israel this year, in what would be an historic first for the Jewish state.

It remains unclear which British royal will visit Israel, but it has been speculated that it will likely be Prince Charles of Wales, heir to the throne, who attended the funeral of the late Israeli President Shimon Peres last year in Jerusalem, The Independent reported.

Hospital axes 450 jobs and builds HALAL KITCHEN for staff and patients
By Jonathan Curtis -March 10, 20170887
A cash-strapped hospital is planning to introduce a separate Halal kitchen to cater for Islamic patients and staff.

Bosses at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust proposed the move after coming under fire for not ensuring Halal meals were up to standard in one of their hospitals.

Chief executive Toby Lewis said a ‘lot of work’ had been done at Sandwell Hospital with local suppliers to improve meals.

But in a further step hospital chiefs are proposing to establish a new kitchen specifically to prepare Halal meals.

Former patients have said the move, which comes less than a year after 450 jobs were axed, is a ‘waste of funds’.

The trust said the cost of implementing a separate kitchen has not been worked out yet as plans are in the early stages.

Loraine Yarnold, 50, saw her mum Caroline Fellows pass away after 10 days in Sandwell Hospital in 2014.
She said she thinks the hospital should be focused on improving patient care.
She claims her mum was poorly cared for, and is still demanding answers as to how she died.
Ms Yarnold said: ‘The care my mum received was horrific.

‘One day when I went in she had bruises all over her. They said she fell out of bed, but that didn’t make any sense because she could hardly move.

‘I ended up leaving a camera to record what was going on. It was shocking.

The 50 year old said: ‘This kitchen would just be a diversion of resources they should not be doing. I don’t agree with it at all.

‘It’s a total waste of funds, when they could be spending it on care.

She added: ‘Their standards really need improving.’

A trust spokesman said: ‘We are still reviewing options around creating a separate halal kitchen and the best ways to provide a range of healthy halal options to patients and staff who want them.’

The hospital came under fire for creating 31 ‘gender neutral’ toilets on site just before Christmas, at a time when the government was promising to phase out mixed-sex wards.
However, in January, the chief executive said plans had been well received.

LONDON’S MUSLIM MAYOR PLANS TO BRING 1.5 MILLION MIGRANTS TO UK CAPITAL
March 5, 2017
Sadiq Khan Lonon migrants

Sadiq Khan made an astonishing admission that his administration is preparing for 1.5 million new people to move to London.

During an event in Surrey, the Muslim Mayor of London, 46, was challenged by a member of the public to come clean over his plans to make the over populated city’s air cleaner.

But in his response he has admitted for the first time that the UK’s capital will see an influx of as many as another 1.5 million people.

More than five million people have moved to Britain in 10 years with immigration figures showing that more than 66 million people live in the country.

However there are a number of estimates that say the figures are much higher.

Mr Khan told hundreds of people in the audience: “Going forward we don’t allow London to have worse air than is currently and worse pollution.

“And so there is a couple of big things, that I wouldn’t mind your input.

“One is we are publishing an environment strategy and we need your input into making sure we fulfil my ambition for London to be the greatest city in the world.

“You better remember that our population is rising, it is currently 8.5m, by 2020 it will be 9 million by 2030 it will be 10 million.

“Actually our city is growing rather than shrinking like Paris we have got to make sure that we are savvy and we are green.

“The new London plan is being worked on.”

London is currently crippled by a lack of infrastructure while the Government is now paying illegal immigrants up to £2,000 each to go home.

Transport strikes and overcrowding on the bus, tram and train networks are crushing business.

But that didn’t stop the mayor telling the public that he’s ready and willing to accept uncontrolled migration to the city which is already suffering from a massive housing crisis.
Researchers are warning of a “perfect storm” as the NHS continues to be crippled by demand caused, in part, by uncontrolled migration.



Thousands sign petition to REMOVE Sadiq Khan as London mayor over Brexit stance
ALMOST 50,000 people have signed a petition to remove Sadiq Khan as London mayor over his controversial Brexit stance.
By TOM PARFITT
PUBLISHED: 08:04, Sat, Feb 4, 2017 | UPDATED: 12:54, Sat, Feb 4, 2017
hey are angry at the Labour politician for wanting London to have a bespoke Brexit deal after Article 50 is triggered.
Mr Khan has urged the Government to give the capital "a voice at the table" during upcoming negotiations with Brussels.
And he wants to introduce special work visa for migrants coming to work in London.

But his position has angered Brexit supporters.

More than 47,000 have signed Matthew Lee's petition on Change.org calling for the Mayor to be removed.

He claims Mr Khan's comments are encouraging the growing movement for London to become independent from the UK.
Mr Lee said: "As the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has a position of power in the capital.

"He should be discouraging any such action from those who wish to create London as an independent state.

"London is the capital city of the United Kingdom and not the European Union."

Child migrant guilty of raping boy, 5, after arriving in UK is handed rehabilitation order
A 15-year-old immigrant who raped a five-year-old boy in the victim's bathroom and said he would "break him into pieces" has been handed a rehabilitation order
The migrant who raped a boy was handed a rehabilitation order by the Derby Youth Court
The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the boy to perform a sex act on him just months after arriving in the UK from Europe to be with his father.

He threatened the five-year-old not to tell anyone and then started crying in a bedroom immediately after committing the rape.

The victim told his mum about the day after the attack in Derby on October 30 last year and the 15-year-old was arrested.

Prosecutor Gordon Aspen said the teen and his victim were at the property when the offender ordered the victim to carry out a sex act on him.
Mr Aspen said: "The following day the victim told his mother what had happened when they were walking together in Normanton.

"He said immediately afterward the teenager said to him 'if you tell anyone I will break you into pieces'.

"He then said he saw the defendant in a bedroom crying. She sent a text message to the teenager's father telling him she was going to the police."

Both the offender and the victim were interviewed about the allegation, which the teen admitted had taken place.

In his interview through an interpreter, the rapist told officers: "I have been bad," and he admitted he carried out the rape on the young boy.

He was also handed a six-month curfew confining him to his home address in Normanton between 7pm and 6am each day for the first two months.

He was also handed a five-year sexual harm prevention order forbidding him to have unsupervised contact with anyone aged under 13 without their parent or guardian's consent.

He was further handed a restraining order forbidding him from contacting his victim for five years.

His father was given a 12-month parenting order to assist him as he brings the boy up.

Alwyn Jones, defending, said: "I hope this will address the underlying issues this young man has."

Somalian immigrant convicted of rape claims it is his HUMAN RIGHT to stay in UK

HOME Secretary Theresa May has won the latest round of a human rights fight with a Somalian immigrant she wants to deport because he was convicted of rape.

Abdulkadir Ahmed Said, 32, said he would probably end up in a makeshift refugee camp and find himself destitute if forced to return to Somalia.

He said if that happened his right to protection from "inhuman or degrading treatment" - enshrined in Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights - would be violated.

A specialist immigration judge had ruled in Said's favour but three Court of Appeal judges have overturned that decision and backed Mrs May.

They ruled on Friday that deportation would not breach Said's human rights after analysing the case at a hearing in London in April.

One appeal judge, Lord Justice Burnett, outlined the background to the case in a written ruling.

Said had lived in the UK for around 20 years and had been given indefinite leave to remain in 2003, said the judge.

In 2009, he had been convicted of two counts of rape - following a hearing at Blackfriars Crown Court - and given a five-year jail term.

Lord Justice Burnett said deportation proceedings had been launched to coincide with Said's release from prison.

Said had then challenged Mrs May's decision to deport and launched a human rights fight.

An immigration judge had ruled in Said's favour nearly two years ago - and Mrs May had appealed against that decision.

Lord Justice Burnett said Said might have difficulty integrating back into Somalian life.
But he said there was "no suggestion" that Said would be "precluded from working".

And he said deportation would not breach Article 3 of the convention.

The two other appeal judges who analysed the case - Lord Justice Christopher Clarke and Lady Justice Sharp - agreed.

Trial Underway in UK for Preachers Arrested for ‘Anti-Social’ Opposition to Islam, Homosexuality
By Heather Clark on February 24, 201725 Comments
Stockwell, Overd and Clark with a representative from Christian Concern

BRISTOL, UK — A trial is currently underway in the United Kingdom for three preachers who were arrested last July on accusations of “causing a disturbance” and engaging in “anti-social behavior” after some listeners became offended by their speech about issues such as Islam, Buddhism, homosexuality and divorce.
Michael Overd, Adrian Clark and Michael Stockwell appeared in Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Thursday and Friday as part of a four-day trial over accusations that they violated a section of the Crime and Disorder Act, which prohibits speech or behavior causing “intentional harassment, alarm or distress” that is “racially or religiously aggravated.”
Prosecutor Ian Jackson “told the court some of the statements made by the preachers may have been in the King James Bible, translated in 1611, but that did not mean they were acceptable in 2016,” according to the Daily Mail.
Video of the incident was played in court on Friday.
As previously reported, the men had been taking turns open air preaching outside of the Bristol shopping center on July 6, while others engaged passersby in conversation and/or held gospel signs.

organized by George Galloway ISIS suicide bomber joined other jihadists on a Gaza ‘aid’ convoy

ISIS suicide bomber joined other jihadists on a Gaza ‘aid’ convoy
cvdfgvb
A ‘British’ former Guantanamo detainee able to flee Britain and blow himself up for ISIS went with other jihadists on a convoy to Gaza organized by George Galloway before he was paid up to £1million by the Government, it was revealed today.
Jamal al-Harith had joined other terrorists including Alexe Kotey, 32, a member of the gang known as The Beatles led by executioner in chief Jihadi John.

Mancunian Al-Harith, who was born Ronald Fiddler and was 50 when he became a suicide bomber in Mosul, reportedly travelled with the first Viva Palestina convoy in 2009.

When asked about the claims last night, Galloway said: ‘I’ve never heard of him or knowingly set eyes on him before the recent press coverage.’
According to The Times Mancunian Al-Harith joined hundreds of Muslims from across Britain on a convoy of around 100 vehicles carrying ‘aid’ to Gaza in 2009.

Also with him was Kotey, a father-of-two and QPR fan who last month was named as a member of the ISIS ‘Beatles’ terror cell led by executioner-in-chief Jihadi John.

The 33-year-old from London was part of a group who beheaded around two dozen hostages, including Britons David Haines and Alan Henning.

Kotey, is reportedly alive and living in Raqqa, Syria, has had all his assets frozen and is believed to be on a US and British ‘kill list’ of most wanted terrorists
30F7A7D700000578-4251814-image-m-11_1487841570485.jpg

He was part of a team of British executioners was led by Londoner Mohammed Emwazi – Jihadi John – and was also responsible for the killing of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and US aid worker Peter Kassig.

Also on the Gaza convoy with them in 2009 was Pakistani-born British citizen Munir Farooqi, who was jailed for life two years later because he ran a market stall as a recruitment centre for terrorists to wage war on British troops.

He at the center of a plot to persuade vulnerable young men to ‘fight, kill and die’ in a jihad, or holy war, in Afghanistan and used extremist literature and films to convert an estate agent, a former British soldier and members of a local criminal gang to Islam.

In 2011 Farooqi received four life sentences at Manchester Crown Court

Last night a political blame game erupted over the alleged £1million paid to a British Guantanamo Bay detainee unmasked as an ISIS suicide bomber.

Ronald Fiddler was handed taxpayer-funded compensation after claiming MI6 agents were complicit in his mistreatment by the Americans.

Despite lobbying by Tony Blair’s government for his release, the former web designer from Manchester this week carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq.

Fiddler’s family last night issued a statement saying he had not received as much as £1million.

But former terror laws watchdog Lord Carlile declared that he was an ‘enemy of the state’ and ‘plainly a terrorist’ who should never have been given a penny.

Blair – who was PM when Fiddler was released – pointed the finger at the Conservatives for agreeing the compensation in 2010, when Theresa May was Home Secretary, but others said the payout was set in train by Labour before it lost power. Downing Street refused to discuss May’s role, saying it was ‘an intelligence matter’.

Muslim convert Fiddler, 50, was released from Guantanamo in 2004 after intense pressure from the Labour government.

On his return to the UK, he and other British former inmates launched a legal action over their alleged mistreatment.

To avoid an embarrassing court battle, which could have revealed British complicity in rendition and torture, ministers agreed to pay millions to settle the claims.

Chris Phillips, the former head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, said some of Fiddler’s share ‘has almost certainly’ gone to fund ISIS.

Fiddler, who adopted the Muslim name Jamal Al-Harith, appeared grinning in an ISIS video as he drove his explosives-laden car towards a target in Mosul.

UK Terror Mosque wins libel payout from Reuters
By Pamela Geller - on February 1, 2017
LATEST NEWS
Litigation jihad.

Here is yet another reason the mainstream media is reluctant to report on jihad and jihad-terror activity and connections.

Finsbury Park Mosque in north London was once the domain of hook-handed imam Abu Hamza, whose extremist sermons inspired attendees including 9/11 co-conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, failed American Airlines “shoe bomber” Richard Reid and London subway suicide bomber Mohammed Sidique Khan.

The “suicide factory” — as one book called it — was also visited by Djamel Beghal, the Islamist “sorcerer” and jail inmate accused of bringing together those responsible for the Charlie Hebdo massacre and related attacks in Paris.

An informer for Britain’s intelligence agency MI5 called it “an al-Qaeda camp in the heart of London.” (NBC News)
The mosque now says that it is new and improved, and we are supposed to just take it at its word. The court obviously did.

FINSBURY PARK MOSQUE WINS LIBEL PAYOUT FROM REUTERS
An international news agency has agreed to pay damages to a mosque it wrongly claimed was linked to terrorism.Thomson Reuters, which provides material to media, financial and other institutions, agreed to pay damages to Finsbury Park Mosque in north London.

It admitted publishing a profile based on outdated reports on its global database – which caused banks to refuse to accept the mosque as a customer.

The firm expressed its “regret” at the High Court earlier.

‘POOR RESEARCH’
Finsbury Park mosque was run by Abu Hamza, who was later convicted of terrorism offences in the United States, until 2005.

The company which took over had its account with HSBC closed in June 2014, after the Reuters report was published.

In a letter, HSBC said: “The provision of banking services… now falls outside of our risk appetite”.

Following the allegations made by Thomson Reuters, numerous other banks refused to accept the mosque as a customer.

Sara Monsoori, representing the company which now runs the mosque, told the High Court the Thomson Reuters’ subscription-only service publishes profiles which also go to subscribers including regulatory bodies and law enforcement agencies.

The mosque’s management company was unaware of the profile report until it was drawn to its attention by the BBC a year after its bank account was closed on 20 June 2015.

She said the mosque was the subject of profile reports which placed it in the “terrorism” category.

“This was wrong,” Ms Monsoori told deputy High Court judge Richard Parkes QC.

“The profile referred to press reports and allegations from many years ago, long before the mosque was reorganised and the claimant company was established.”

Thomson Reuters admitted its report “made the false allegation that there were grounds to suspect that the claimant had continued connections to terrorism”.

It said those allegations had now been withdrawn.

Thomson Reuters agreed to pay damages and the mosque company’s legal costs.

Finsbury Park Mosque said in a statement: “It is unacceptable that any organisation is able to designate people as terrorists on the basis of poor research and for those people to be labelled without any recourse to truth or justice.”

CHANGING CHANGING-THE-GUARD AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE
Thanks to terror fears the ceremony will not take place every day, while the Saturday tradition is canceled at Windsor Palace.
Mon, January 30, 2017
The famous changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London has undergone changes because of fears it could be targeted for terrorism. Meanwhile, the similar Saturday ceremony at nearby Windsor Castle was canceled indefinitely.
The decisions were taken after recent terror strikes in Europe such as the truck attacks in Nice and Berlin last year.
Armed police officers now accompany the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, while checkpoints surround the area. The spectacle only takes place at Buckingham Palace on specific days rather than alternate days as was the custom for decades. It was also moved half an hour earlier so as not to clash with the extra traffic at lunchtime.
And just in case there isn't a ceremony next time you're in London here's a reminder:

Brits Called to Learn Language of Immigrants to Help Them Feel Better: Scholar
http://pamelageller.com/2017/01/brits-called-learn-language-immigrants-help-feel-better.html/

A U.K. professor is calling on her British citizens to take up and learn the languages of Urdu, Polish and Punjabi in order to make it more comfortable and easy for incoming immigrants who don’t speak English.

Isn’t this a bit backward? Normally, those entering a country are required to acclimate with the citizenry, not the other way around.

But now, it’s the citizens who are being asked to learn the language of immigrants. Go figure.


A scholar in the United Kingdom says citizens ought to learn the language of immigrants in order to help them feel more comfortable and welcome.
The Express has the story:

“Many more English speakers should think of immigration as a ‘two-way street’ and be able to communicate in another language to aid integration and social cohesion, said academic Wendy Ayres-Bennett.”

“The call folows two major reports into integration in British society which called on immigrants to learn English if they want to live in the UK.

“And today it was described as a ‘retrograde step’.

“Stewart Jackson, whose Peterborough constituency has suffered from the impact of high immigration, said: ‘It’s important that new migrants integrate into British society and support British values and that means – for their own self interest and the good of society – learning and speaking and reading English.

“‘This demand flies in the face of government policy and good community relations and would be a retrograde step.’

“Prof Ayres-Bennett, head of French philology and linguistics at the University of Cambridge and leader of the MEITS project promoting multi-lingualism, said: ‘It is very important to think of integration as a two-way street.

“‘I would like to see more opportunities for British people to learn some of the community languages of the UK, such as Polish, Punjabi and Urdu, particularly in areas where there are high numbers of those speakers, so that there is some mutual effort in understanding the others’ language and culture.

“‘Even a basic knowledge would be beneficial, which might be acquired formally or through engaging in joint community projects.

“‘Considering the issue from the point of view of language learning, we rightly expect immigrants to learn English but, as a nation, we often don’t see the need ourselves to learn another language, and consider it to be something difficult and only for the intellectual elite.'”

Vote to Annex Huge Judean City on Sunday
By JNI Media January 19, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“For God will save Tzion, and build the cities of Yehuda; and they shall abide there, and have it in possession.” Psalms 69:36 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Maale-Adumim.jpg
Ma’ale Adumim (RonAlmog/Flickr)
On Sunday, the Israeli government ministerial committee on legislation, chaired by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi), will debate a proposed bill applying Israeli civil law in the city of Ma’ale Adumim, located roughly four miles east of Jerusalem. The location of both Ma’ale Adumin and Jerusalem, at the narrow center of the peanut shaped Judea and Samaria, would certainly threaten any realistic effort in the future to establish a contiguous Palestinian state. The 4.6 square mile area between the two Jewish cities, designated as the E-1 zone, is within the municipal boundary of Ma’ale Adumim, but it is also home to a few Bedouin communities and their livestock, and the location of a large Israeli police compound.

Painfully aware of the crucial strategic value of E-1, in 2013 the Palestinian Authority established for a few days the illegal tent site of Bab al Shams within this zone, which was demolished by order of the Supreme Court.

The ministerial debate and, presumably, vote, will take place two days into the new Trump Administration, and, at least according to Ha’aretz, it was planned that way to avoid yet another bitter clash with Trump’s predecessor. Indeed, because of hostile reactions from two US Administrations, every plan for the expansion of Ma’ale Adumim westward has been frozen since 2005.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/444-BIN-Subscribe-JudeaSamaria-600WIDE.jpg

Ha’aretz cites a senior source inside Likud saying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will continue with this policy and delay the ministerial vote on bringing the first Jewish community in the liberated territories under Israeli law. This, according to the source, is not because the PM objects to the idea of annexing Ma’ale Adumim, but because he is wary of offending the new president by taking for granted his approval to such a sea change.

MK Yoav Kisch (Likud) said he is willing to compromise and has reduced the bill to just proclaiming Ma’ale Adumim part of Israel, leaving E-1 out of the plan for now. This will create the first Israeli extra-territorial territory since the years before the 1967 war, when Mount Scopus was an isolated Israeli territory inside the Jordanian-ruled “west bank.”

Kisch believes the vast majority of Israelis want to see Ma’ale Adumim be united with the Jewish State, after 49 years of living under IDF martial law. If approved Sunday, the bill could be submitted for a preliminary Knesset plenum vote next week.

Trump on Jerusalem Embassy Move:
I Don’t Break Promises
Trump Doubles Down on Jerusalem Embassy Promise; City’s Mayor Welcomes Him With Open Arms
By Valerie Locke January 19, 2017 , 11:30 am
“At that time they shall call Yerushalayim the throne of Hashem; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Hashem, to Yerushalayim; neither shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart.” Jeremiah 3:17 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/barkat-trump-final.png

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat (L) and Donald Trump. (Breaking Israel News)
President-elect Donald Trump reassured supporters on Tuesday that he does not intend to go back on his campaign promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, saying, “You know that I am not a person who breaks promises.”

Speaking from the Chairman’s Global Dinner in Washington DC, Trump said that he “clearly did not forget” his guarantee to move the embassy, an act which has come to represent Trump’s pro-Israel stance and enjoys wide bipartisan support from Congress.

While a number of past presidents have promised to make the momentous move while campaigning, none have ever followed through, wary of stirring tensions in a city which both Israelis and Palestinians claim as their capital. Trump, however, remained adamant throughout the race that upon taking office, he would “move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem.”

He has appointed as ambassador to Israel right-winger David Friedman, who has said he is “eager to begin work from the US embassy” in Jerusalem.

Until now, the US has been unwilling to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel for fear of angering Palestinians. In fact, many American officials – including President Barack Obama – have refused to even acknowledge that Jerusalem is physically located in Israel.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/411-Jerusalem-1260WIDE.jpg

Trump’s pro-Jerusalem sentiments have been cheered by Israeli politicians across the spectrum, including the capital’s mayor Nir Barkat, who launched a campaign on Thursday to show support for Trump from the holy city.

“This week Donald Trump will enter the White House as president. Let’s together welcome him as a friend and thank him for his intention to move the US embassy to Jerusalem,” urged Barkat in a video filmed from his office in Jerusalem.

Barkat also suggested a quick and easy way to move the embassy with very little fuss. “You can move the embassy in one morning by a small change: Take the plaque of the consulate [in Jerusalem] and replace it with one that says ’embassy’,” he proposed to Israel Radio on Wednesday.

“That can be done in five minutes, and afterwards you can move the ambassador and then move the rest of the staff and services.”

Such a move would “change the whole dynamic around Jerusalem and Israel,” Barkat said.

He criticized outgoing President Obama’s attitude towards Israel, saying that for “eight challenging years” Jerusalem has had to deal with “demands for building freezes, surrenders to radical Islam, surrenders to the Iranians.

“I hope that we are at the beginning of a new era of eight good years,” he concluded.
