Translation: “[That] indeed, they would be made triumphant (Mansuroon). And verily, our soldiers will be the victors.” (171-172:37).
Although over the course of the 15-year Jihad the foreign occupiers have suffered heavy casualties and a large number of the coalition have withdrawn from our lands yet under American leadership some unjust countries insist on the continued occupation of Afghanistan. They prioritize war over peace, increasing their troop numbers and dropping ever larger bombs on our territory. They employ numerous tactics and strategies in order to prolong the occupation and keep our faithful and independent nation under their vassalage. The Islamic Emirate therefore has determined that with the advantageous weather we once again launch our yearly spring offensive against the foreign forces and their internal allies named Operation Mansouri.
The fact that under the leadership of Shaheed Amir ul Mu’mineen Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour the Mujahideen gained various decisive victories, annihilated highway robbers and impious people, foiled various seditions and intrigues, leaped forward in the political and social arenas, humiliated various foreign powers compelling them to leave our land, and achieve copious other proud milestones, thus we supplicate to Allah Almighty that through the martyr’s blessed name – Operation Mansouri – the Almighty consecrate this Operation so that throughout its duration our sacred land is cleansed from the remaining foreign aggressors and other impious and corrupt elements.
With the help of Allah Almighty and the infinite sacrifices of our Mujahid nation the foreign forces have suffered a historic defeat having been forced to admit that the Mujahideen control more than half of Afghanistan. Hence, keeping the evolving situation in mind, this year’s Mansouri Operations will differ from previous ones in nature and will be conducted with a twin-tracked political and military approach.
In the political sphere:
In those areas that have been cleansed from the enemy and under the full control of the Mujahideen, particular attention will be paid to establishing mechanisms for social justice and development so that our people can live a secure and prosperous life.
In cleansed districts and areas state-building will earnestly proceed and institutions will be erected to secure the social, security, and legal rights of the citizens.
In all the conquered areas special dawah and propagation apparatus will be set up to help those deceived by the enemy see the truth of our struggle, relinquish their opposition and return back to their villages and their people.
In the military sphere:
In those areas where the Mujahideen do not have full control, the enemy will be targeted, harassed, killed, or captured until they are compelled to abandon their few remaining posts.
The main focus of Operation Mansouri will be on foreign forces, their military and intelligence infrastructure and in eliminating their internal mercenary apparatus.
These operations will involve conventional attacks, guerrilla warfare, complex martyrdom attacks, insider attacks, and use of IEDs to achieve their objectives. With the help of Allah Almighty.
During these operations the Mujahideen will be required to scrutinize their targets and places so as to minimize civilian casualties paying heed to the principles of necessity and proportionality.
In the spirit that the eighth of Saur has become a historic day in our annals against Warsaw Pact and the Red Army, so Operation Mansouri will also be launched on 8th Saur 1396 of the Solar Hijri calendar; corresponding with first of Sha’ban 1438 and 28th April 2017 in the Lunar Hijri and Gregorian calendars respectively; in all the nation’s provinces. They will be initiated at 5 am local time with the cries of Allah is Great, targeting the foreign forces and their bases. We request from civilians – in order to minimize collateral damage – that they avoid enemy bases and their military and intelligence personnel and to assist their Mujahideen brothers by all means possible.

The one thing that baffles me with regards to the western world is our abhorrent hypocrisy. For a society that invests so much in its liberal and free-thinking values, we seem to have a soft spot for Islam, as a religion, which is neither. Take note as of late the troubling events in Sweden, England, and even Germany and you will soon realise that my worry for the future of Europe, and indeed its inherent values, is warranted. For years now, particularly mainstream media and lefties (is there a difference), have pushed this false narrative that the West and Islam can live in harmony with one another, branding Islam the “religion of peace” in a feeble attempt to mask the true intent and core of Islamic teachings…well, I can’t help but to call bullshit on that one.
From the 3rd April 2017 to 8th April 2017, there have been 23 murders and a further 64 injuries racked up in Europe at the hands of muslims (extremists or otherwise); and we seem content with it. St Petersburg, Russia – subway car blown up, killing 14 and injuring 49. Astrakhan, Russia – 2 men pertaining to be followers of Islam shoot dead 2 traffic cops. Malgobek, Russia – 2 muslim men stand on front of a police car, and proceed to shoot at the car with machine guns, killing both officers within the vehicle. Stockholm, Sweden – one of the more high profile incidents that was covered recently by mainstream media, even then they were reluctant to highlight the religious identity of the driver. Here, a muslim man steals a truck, whereby he drives down a commercialised street, killing 4 people and injuring 15. Paris, France – you guessed it, a muslim man praises Allah before throwing a 66 year old Jewish woman to her death from a balcony. The scary thing is that this has happened in the space of 1 week….! Not to mention the attacks on Westminster. For anyone who wishes to exclaim that Islam is a religion of peace can fuck right off.
From all that’s currently happening throughout mainland Europe, it raises the question whether Ireland should be concerned about the rise of Islam. After all, whatever happens in the UK, happens 30 years later in Ireland. All the more worrying when you see areas like Birmingham, known breeding ground for jihadists and terrorist-sympathizers due to the high concentration of muslims. The UK is slowly being diminished and its freedom compromised by the foreboding growth of this cancerous faith.
Don’t believe me? At the time of writing, the Mayor of London City is a Mr Sidiq Khan, a member of the Sunni branch of Islam. The man is nothing more than a token public figure, put into office to quell the already burgeoning tensions between native Londoners and the growing Muslim population. In such adverse times, the people of the western world need a person with a strong personality, a strong sense of morals and balls the size of watermelons; instead, London gets this sack of shit. Just to give a taste of Khan’s psyche, he feels that “terror attacks…are part and parcel of living in a big city”. Where’s the stoic resistance? The rousing assurance of safety and stability? Even a platitude of positivity? Nope, instead this spineless coward has basically told everyone around the world in any major city that “we know Islam is a militant and violent religion but pfft….what are we going to do about it”. If you have a figure like that, acting as the face for your city, there is not much hope at all!
In 2012, Muhammed was the most common name given to baby boys born in London (often gifted the name Londonistan due to its ‘diversity’); what’s more, there are over 1,750 mosques throughout the UK – offering service to over 3,000,000 Muslims. A cause for concern? Absolutely!
Since joining Europe in 1973, Ireland has largely been a solitary rock anchored at the corner of the continent, rarely feeling the effects of membership until some 20-odd years later. It wasn’t until around the mid to late 1990s that immigration became a ‘thing’ in Ireland; sure it’s still a novelty in some parts of the country today. Nowadays, immigration has become a major problem. This large, uncontrolled influx of foreign nationals is quite a daunting thought. Think about it – no background checks on most people coming into the country, mixing with the general populace. You don’t know their intentions, their history, what they might do? Such a thought is made all the more worrying when you add an ideology like Islam to the mix. Of course I don’t think EVERY single muslim is a terrorist, I admit it is wrong to paint every person of a certain demographic/group with the same brush. BUT….it seems to be a recurring theme within this certain religion. There are almost 500 million Buddhists in the world, yet seldom do I hear stories of terrorism spawning from its places of worship. There are over 1,000,000,000 Christians in the world – yet we have no recent memory of Christians in Europe/America killing muslims for coming to their country (people like to bring up Anders Breivik. So 1 nutjob Christian in 10 years. Well done!). There is something inherently wrong with Islam.
As you may or may not know, Ireland’s history has been incontrovertibly tainted by certain actions (or inactions) of Religion – in particular the Catholic Church. In the past 10-15 years, skeletons (both proverbial and literal) have been unearthed from the Church’s past. Scandals surrounding rampant paedophilia among priests throughout the mid to late 20th Century and beyond, the recent Tuam atrocity and not to mention the notorious Magdelene laundries – basically glorified workhouses for single-mothers, ‘promiscuous’ young women, unwanted children…nobody was truly exempt from these institutions. However the Catholic Church, as far as the Pope, has acknowledged their wrong doings and the terrible crimes that were committed under the name of their organisation. Anybody associated with the Catholic church in Ireland, in light of the release of these stories, were scorned by the public and media alike. From then on support for Catholicism (and religion in general) dramatically decreased around the country. Religion has since been treated as an irreverent topic, as opposed to 50 years ago where you would not dare speak ill of the establishment or you may be ostracised. Nowadays, it’s acceptable to be disrespectful to the Church. It’s almost a necessity for your average Irish millennial…..if you have a positive view of religion/spirituality then you will be constantly reminded of the Church’s shameful past which, as you can imagine, grows tiresome. You will be shamed into disassociating yourself from it and if you don’t, you will be berated as being a sympathiser. Young people in Ireland want nothing more than to see religion crumble and disappear from the Irish society (468,400 people declared themselves atheist/no religion in the latest census, which is a 73% increase since the 2011 census). Strangely enough, this ill-feeling towards religion disappears when it concerns Islam. You will see your average Irish leftie call for the disbandment of the Catholic Church yet in the same breath, ask his/her fellow countrymen to respect the religious beliefs of immigrants to the country i.e. muslims. Islam will soon be the new face of religious Ireland, and it won’t take long either. So what I want to know is why is there such a high tolerance among the younger population, for such an intolerant religion?
According to the 2016 census, Islam is the fastest growing religion in Ireland. It currently boasts 49,204 followers and counting. It is expected to reach 100,000 by the year 2020, based on current immigration trends, birth rates and domestic conversion. Ireland witnessed a 70% increase in the Muslim population in just 4 years (2002-2006), and these surging figures show no signs of slowing. To cope with the growing numbers, An Bord Pleanala granted planning permission in 2013 to build Clongriffin mosque (as well as a centre providing amenities, accommodation etc.) This mosque, taking up 6 acres, cost in the region of €40 million (partly funded by tax payer money yet most was footed by associated developers of the project.) Could you imagine the uproar if it was announced that a Catholic church was to be constructed at a cost of almost €50 million, as well as taking up almost half the size of the Aviva stadium? There would be anger, the public opinion would dissent on the decision and eventually protests would ensue. There is another sizeable Mosque located in Clonskeagh, Dublin. The most worrying thing about these centres for Islamic worship is the funding; The construction of the Clonskeagh mosque, also known as the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland, was largely funded by the al-Maktoum foundation of Dubai. Furthermore, another mosquejust outside Togher, Co. Cork, is partly funded through donations from wealthy Muslims residing in the middle-east – €800,000 was given by a Qatari benefactor to go towards the cost of construction. This worries me. Here, we have an ideology rooted around paedophilia, misogyny, polygamy and injustice – and it’s being funded by the very countries that practice Sharia Law/strict Islamic teachings. What’s to say that Saudi money is not funding these mosques also? If the Muslim population continues to surge at the rate it is, these places of worship could prove to be hotspots for manipulation. To spread hatred and violence, to spread un-western ideals and values. And by that time, it will be too late to hinder the influence of the Muslim community. It’s a natural progression – the UK is already having problems trying to control the teachings of mosques around the country. Several mosques and their leading Imams, have called for the British government to provide a separate branch of courts to govern the application of Sharia Law amongst the Muslim community. Let me remind you, these are the laws that require for apostates to be sentenced to death if they decide to leave the religion or become non-muslim. And these ideals are not just held by ‘radical-muslims’; this is the norm amongst Islamic teachings. It’s barbaric, it’s backward and in my eyes, it has no place in modern western society.
Need someone to shout at online? We can be of service. Follow us.
Another tolerant American Muslim, Laith Waleed Alebbini, has been arrested for plotting to give aid to the Islamic State in Syria. The Dayton, Ohio resident was taken into custody by the FBI at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport on Wednesday as he attempted to board a flight to the Middle East.
The reaction of local Islamic leader Abdul Shahid was to say that his religion does not advocate any violence:
It has absolutely no room for any coercion, violence, or any type of killing.
It stands for nothing but peace, and that is what we believe in.
Just keep spinning.
Islam is a wretched and oppressive ideology. Civilized people know this. Well, now we are seeing the Austrian President suggest ALL WOMEN should wear a head scarf to stand in support of this wicked ideology!
Another strange twist, as our Bibles are being nefariously rewritten, check out this changed verse:
“Austria’s President has revealed a controversial plan to fight Islamophobic sentiments. Alexander Van der Bellen is suggesting that EVERY woman should wear a head-scarf – in a show of support to Muslim women” (SOURCE: RT)
Indeed, our Bibles are changing quickly, as they redefine Christianity, preparing for the antichrist and one world religion.
Are you awake yet, Bride of Christ? We are in the end game, and Bible prophecy is unfolding quickly.
Get your spiritual life in order TODAY by asking JESUS CHRIST to be your LORD and SAVIOR. JESUS is the One True God, the Word of God, the Messiah, the Savior of the World.

In northern Nigeria, educating the girl-child beyond high school is frowned at. Even amongst the educated elite. Main reason? The more educated a girl-child is, the less likely she would find male suitors on time, goes the flawed conventional and chauvinistic wisdom. The oft-cited fear is that should a girl-child be allowed to become too highly educated and exposed, she is not likely to be submissive to her future husband. To this day, this view is pervasive. To cover their shame, some fathers deploy a trick if the daughter proves to be headstrong than usual: they convince her that once in her husband’s house, she can continue her education. Of course, once she gets there, the husband promptly puts her in the family way. Ironically, so-called pious northern Muslims who refuse to allow their female wards attain the heights of their dreams also bristle at the thought that male doctors might inevitably examine their wives and daughters when faced with one medical complication or the other. Well, if there are not enough female doctors, who else would do the job?
Hypocrisy runs deep
To be clear, the acquisition of knowledge is a fundamental requirement in Islam, irrespective of gender. So unlike the popular perception, the illiteracy and related poverty problems in northern Nigeria have nothing to do with Islam. They are cultural. That things have remained unchanged for so long is fundamentally due to patriarchy and resistance by the beneficiaries who despair at their potential enervation should females be empowered. Funnily enough, often is the case that northern males who are quick to show off in public how they exert control over their wives, are usually the ones most often under their thumbs; the so-called “mijin hajiyas”, a derisive term for husbands unduly influenced by their spouses. Incidentally, the mostly affluent northern elite who are quick to advertise their piety when their less endowed brethren are the subject matter, not only allow their wives many freedoms but also educate their daughters in the best schools. Curiously, they also do not hesitate to marry their daughters off to similarly rich males irrespective of their ethnicity insofar as they are Muslims. Their ethnic and religious bigotry is especially reserved for lesser beings it seems.
Thus, to have taken on so boldy the issue of female gender rights, Muhammad Sanusi II, Emir of Kano, is bound to offend many. Emir Sanusi, who by virtue of his position is the second highest Islamic authority in Nigeria, has always been a rebel of sorts. Former Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan, cannot soon forget the grief Mr Sanusi caused him when as governor of the central bank, he blew the whistle on huge sums of crude oil sale proceeds unaccounted for. Unsurprisingly, those opposed to his accession to the emirship some three years ago worried he would not be able to keep quiet for long: by tradition, a royal is supposed to say little, and even when he does, it is preferably that he does so in such low tones that someone is assigned to repeat his words loudly. To their chagrin and hopefully to the benefit of his people, they were right. Still, it is probably unwise of him to have shown his hands so publicly this early in his reign. His real and much harder task would be to win the hearts and minds of the exceptionally conservative northern Islamic establishment he is an essential part of and which incidentally, he also leads.
Gently does it
Mr Sanusi must now reflect and decide on a strategy. His increasingly loud activism suggests he is probably a little frustrated already: He has no formal authority. Those fiery speeches of his, with their biting statistics and all, can only do so much. Yes, they have begun to touch a few nerves here and there. And then what? Besides, even as Mr Sanusi tries to espouse a certain anti-elitist intellectualism, he is the quintessential epitome of privilege. To be fair, Mr Sanusi has never suggested that he is “of the people.” But if he hopes to succeed at “being for the people”, the northern politicians – who ordinarily defer to royalty and who it happens are also the ones with the power to transform his activism into concrete reforms – currently at the receiving end of his fervent rhetoric are also the ones he has to win over. Mr Sanusi’s predecessors were able to influence them by guarding their tongues so that when they spoke, they listened. Mr Sanusi must drink from their cup of wisdom.

Shiva Amini is a popular Iranian female football player, who won also many medals in international tournaments. Few weeks ago she was in a private trip in Europe – in Italy and Switzerland. Here, she played soccer with friends, in unofficial games. Feeling far and free from the Iranian Islamic dress code constrictions, Shiva decided to play with men, without wearing the veil. After the games, she posted videos of her experience on her Instagram account.
Unfortunately, also the representatives of the Iranian football federation saw her videos and pictures: immediately they decided to ban Shiva Amin from the Iranian national women team. As it is possible to see (and listen) in a video published by the Facebook page My Stealthy Freedom, Shiva protested against the decision, underlining that she was in Europe for private reasons, not playing for the Islamic Republic. The Iranian officials, answered that she is always a representative of the country, and she must behave always in an “Islamic way”. One of the representative of the national Football Federation of Iran, attacked also Shiva for her decision to visit Europe, “a place which is against our culture”.
If you only watch American media, you’ll think that Pentagon has defeated the IS in Afghanistan with one big MF MOAB on 4/13/17.
BBC’s reporter, Auliya Atrafi, went to the site to inspect the damage first hand and said this:
The BBCreporter also said that the MOAB did kill many IS fighters but more IS fighters who wear 6 pairs of socks (no shoes so that they can sneak up to government soldiers) come back. Maybe the U.S. needs to drop more MOAB to scare the IS fighters into submission, otherwise, Trump may want to send in more American boys and girls to fight the IS on the ground.
In any case, read or watch BBC News to get the real scoop instead of the make-naive-Americans-feel-good fake news.
Auliya Atrafi has this to say at the end of his report:
Orang-orang beriman yakin sepenuh hati bahwa apa yang telah ditetapkan oleh Allah SWT melalui perantaraan Rasulullah SAW merupakan yang terbaik untuk kita. Islam sebagai jalan hidup tidak hanya mengatur tata cara beribadah kepada Sang Khalik tetapi juga mengatur setiap segi kehidupan, terutama dalam persoalan harta.
Salah satu ilmu yang paling penting untuk dipelajari, dimengerti dan diamalkan dalam kompilasi hukum Islam adalah ilmu tentang mawaris (pembagian harta warisan). Sudah banyak contoh kasus di mana ketidakmengertian dan pengabaian ilmu mawaris menimbulkan persengketaan, percekcokan antar keluarga dan banyak yang berakhir dengan permusuhan sampai saling pukul dan saling bunuh, hanya karena kejahilan mengenai hukum waris.
Hal yang harus kita sebagai orang-orang beriman pahami mengenai harta warisan adalah bahwa harta orang yang sudah meninggal dunia otomatis menjadi milik Allah SWT sehingga pembagiannya hanya Allah SWT yang berhak menentukan, dan sudah ada perhitungannya yang jelas termaktub secara eksplisit di dalam Al Quran. Tidak ada alasan apapun bagi orang-orang beriman untuk mengingkari ketetapan Allah SWT tersebut. Tidak seperti hukum sekuler, keinginan dari orang yang meninggal (pewaris) tidak diakui jika bertentangan dengan ketetapan Allah SWT. Karena itu jika orang yang telah meninggal itu membuat surat wasiat yang mengatur siapa-siapa yang memperoleh hartanya setelah ia wafat, akan gugur wasiatnya jika bertubrukan dengan hukum waris dalam Islam.
Orang-orang Muslim yang menolak menjalankan pembagian waris sesuai hukum Islam diancam dengan siksaan yang sangat pedih di neraka karena sesungguhnya mereka telah memakan hak orang lain dengan cara yang batil.
Permasalahan Mawaris di Indonesia
Umumnya kesalahan paling utama yang terjadi dalam memperlakukan harta warisan dari orang yang sudah meninggal adalah menunda-nunda pembagian warisan. Di Indonesia sendiri sering kali dianggap tidak sopan untuk membicarakan pembagian harta warisan segera setelah mayit dikuburkan. Hal tersebut dianggap tabu dan pelakunya dicap haus harta.
Padahal menurut syariat Islam harta warisan dari orang yang sudah meninggal harus segera didata, dihitung dan ditetapkan besaran untuk masing-masing ahli waris. Permasalahan apakah eksekusi pembagian tersebut disegerakan atau ditunda itu memang bisa dimusyawarahkan lagi, terutama apabila harta yang ditinggalkan berupa harta tidak bergerak yang kemungkinan masih dimanfaatkan oleh salah satu ahli waris.
Contoh kasus yang umum terjadi adalah warisan berupa rumah dari seorang laki-laki yang telah wafat yang meninggalkan istri dan anak-anak. Umumnya anak-anak akan merasa segan untuk membagi-bagi warisan berupa rumah tersebut karena rumah itu masih ditempati oleh ibu mereka (istri dari orang yang sudah meninggal itu). Dan parahnya, sering kali sang ibu malah merasa bahwa rumah yang ditempatinya tersebut menjadi haknya 100% ketika suaminya meninggal dunia sehingga anak-anaknya tidak berhak menuntut rumah tersebut dijadikan obyek warisan dari almarhum ayahnya.
Awal mula kesalahan ini tentunya adalah karena banyak orang yang menyangka bahwa dalam kehidupan rumah tangga tidak perlu menentukan porsi kepemilikan harta. Perlu dipahami bahwa dalam Islam tidak ada istilah harta gono gini dalam pernikahan. Harta milik istri sepenuhnya miliknya sendiri dan harta miliki suami juga miliknya sendiri.
Dalam contoh kasus ibu yang menguasai rumah mendiang suaminya tersebut perlu ditelusuri bagaimana sebenarnya status kepemilikan rumah tersebut. Jika memang rumah itu adalah 100% hasil pembelian dari harta pribadi sang ibu, tentu memang rumah itu menjadi miliknya 100% dan anak-anaknya tidak berhak menuntut rumah tersebut dijadikan obyek waris atas wafatnya sang ayah.
Tetapi apabila rumah tersebut ternyata dibeli 100% oleh sang ayah, ibu sebagai istri dari orang yang sudah meninggal hanya berhak atas 1/8 dari nilai harta tersebut. Dan sisanya 7/8 bagian adalah milik ahli waris lainnya, yaitu anak-anak almarhum, orang tua almarhum (jika masih hidup) dan ahli waris lain yang tidak terhijab seperti saudara kandung almarhum, cucu dan lain-lain (semuanya harus masih dalam keadaan hidup).
Dan apabila rumah tersebut dibeli bersama oleh ayah dan ibu, perlu ditelusuri secara jelas berapa porsi kepemilikan ayah dan ibu. Apakah ayah:ibu = 50:50, 70:30, 30:70 dan lain-lain. Jika sudah diketahui porsi kepemilikannya, berarti ibu berhak atas nilai rumah tersebut sesuai porsi kepemilikannya dan juga berhak atas 1/8 bagian dari nilai porsi kepemilikan ayah.
Demikian pula jika rumah tersebut diperoleh atas andil dari anak-anak (sebagian ahli waris). Perlu dikeluarkan dulu porsi yang menjadi hak mereka baru diperhitungkan berapa nilai yang murni merupakan harta miliki pewaris.
Demikian pula jika pewaris (orang yang sudah meninggal) memiliki wasiat sebelum ia wafat. Perlu diingat bahwa wasiat tidak boleh diberikan kepada orang yang memang merupakan ahli waris. Jadi tidak boleh misalnya orang yang wafat membuat wasiat supaya rumah peninggalannya diberikan kepada istri atau salah satu anaknya menurut keinginannya. Wasiat diberikan kepada pihak yang bukan ahli waris, misalnya anak angkat, lembaga kemanusiaan, saudara yang bukan termasuk ahli waris, dll. Dan perlu diingat bahwa harta yang bisa diwasiatkan tidak boleh melebihi 1/3 harta peninggalan sang mayit.
Sekali lagi harta orang yang sudah meninggal merupakan harta yang otomatis menjadi milik ahli waris dan pihak-pihak penerima wasiat (yang tidak bertentangan dengan syariat Islam) sehingga jika ada upaya untuk menghalangi mereka dari menerima harta tersebut adalah sebuah kezaliman besar yang diancam siksa neraka. Tidak boleh jika ahli waris menuntut haknya lantas di-bully atau dihina dengan istilah-istilah haus harta dan lain-lain karena menuntut hak adalah diperbolehkan bahkan diwajibkan dalam Islam. Hal ini tentu saja untuk menjaga supaya ahli waris lain tercegah dari memakan harta yang bukan menjadi haknya.
Rukun islam yang terakhir adalah melaksanakan ibadah haji. Ini dikhususkan bagi orang-orang yang sudah mampu dari segi hartanya.
Perintah melaksanakan haji dalam Al-quran Surat Ali imran ayat 97:

On the 26th of April I posted an article criticising the political agendas and the rise of consumer products that surround ANZAC Day. In this piece I never once disrespected the ANZAC soldiers that were killed in warfare, nor did I preach political ideologies of my own. This article was also ready to be posted on ANZAC day itself, but was reserved until April 26th in respect for people that may be mourning their fallen ancestors.
Yassmin Abdel-Magied, an ABC Muslim spokesperson, did not grant this same respect. On ANZAC Day, Abdel-Magied posted,
This created a monumental uproar as over 12,444 citizens have since signed a petition for her position at the ABC to be terminated. This only comes a few months after Abdel-Magied again caused controversy on the political panel show Q&A. She was involved in a public spat with Senator Jacqui Lambie over the use of Sharia Law in Australia, which led her to infamously state that Islam is the ‘most feminist religion in the world’.
Video courtesy of ABC’s Q&A
Australian politicians have also come out in arms against Abdel-Magied since the post. Liberal senator Eric Abetz personally asked the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop to remove Abdel-Magied from the board for Australian-Arab Relations, stating that she was ‘unfit for the job and lacked judgment’. The ABC quickly released a statement washing their hands of the post, stating that Abdel-Magied’s opinions and behaviours outside of the ABC is none of their business and do not represent their own views.
Abdel-Magied has since taken down her post, editing the original to simply say ‘lest we forget’, but the damage is already done. She posted a very weak apology in the aftermath saying that, ‘It was brought to my attention that my last post was disrespectful, and for that, I apologise unreservedly’. This apology reminds me of a pubescent boy with a black fringe covering his eyes, kicking the dirt beneath him, murmuring ‘I guess I’m sorry you were offended’, which is a fitting comparison to Abdel-Magied’s own immature behaviour.
Eric Abetz is correct in his opinion of Abdel-Magied. She seems to completely lack an understanding of human behaviour and what is and is not acceptable. The horrendous nature of this post had to be ‘brought to her attention’! It baffles me to understand how such a prominent member of the Australian-Muslim community could not see the insensitivity of her post. It was irresponsible, especially since her position is to specifically promote Australian and Arab relations, which are at an all time low. Furthermore, how could she not expect Australian citizens to be outraged at the notion of widespread Sharia Law throughout the country?
There is a pattern of behaviour here. This behaviour is obvious attention seeking, coming from seeds of insecurity. Even the Muslim community has come out against Abdel-Magied. A Muslim leader, Abbas Aly said that he was struggling to deal with Abdel-Magied’s comments and that he was ‘at a loss’. Aly labeled her as ‘damaging towards the Islamic community’ and accused her of ‘seeking publicity’.
Perhaps it would have been more appropriate for Abdel-Magied to tweet ‘lest we forget’ the countless Muslim women who are in abusive relationships with violent Muslim men (but only as a last resort). Lest we forget how a Muslim woman is considered half the worth of a Muslim man in the Arab world. Lest we forget all of the Muslim women who are deemed stupid and worthless just for being female or how they do not share the same divorce rights as Muslim men. Lest we forget the legal forced marriage and rape of under-aged countless Muslim girls and lest we forget the worrying problem of in-breeding in the Islamic world. How is that for the ‘most feminist religion in the world’?
Granted, the problems on Nauru and Manus island are serious. This was not the time or the place to herald yourself as a saviour of the people. Yassmin Abdel-Magied, before you criticise Australia on ANZAC day or publically take part in al-Taqiyaa on national television, take a moment to have a look in your own back yard first.
just read the quote, below, then try to tell me this is what ‘they’ voted for—The president of Austria has raised quite a few eyebrows after stating that there may come a day when all women are asked to wear headscarves out of solidarity, citing discrimination faced by Muslims in the country. Alexander Van der Bellen, who made the statements while speaking to students on Monday, began by stating that he believes it is “every woman’s right to wear whatever she likes.” However, referring to discrimination against Muslims in Austria, the leader went on to state that “if this continues… with the widely spreading Islamophobia, the day will come when we have to ask all women to wear a headscarf – all – out of solidarity to those who do it for religious reasons.”

Force them to wear whatever they like? I’m hip!
Force them to label themselves as brain-dead slaves to a system created a thousand years ago in the name of an invisible intangible spook by a pederast? Not good … but someone voted for him …

Planting the seeds of awe and fear of Allah in children is far more important than them memorising the Qur’an when they are young. However, memorising the Qur’an is praiseworthy.
Agus Salim dikenal sebagai perkokok berat. Kebiasaan menyulut rokok kretek ini pun menjadi gaya khasnya yang unik saat berada di negara-negara barat.
Misalnya saat H. Agus Salim pada tahun 1953 diundang mengajar di Cornell University untuk 2 mata kuliah tentang agama Islam dan pengaruhnya di Asia Tenggara, Timur Tengah, khususnya Indonesia dan Pakistan.
Dengan penampilan berjas dan dasi, Agus Salim juga melengkapi penampilannya dengan peci. Peci ini peci yang dibuat khusus, bagian sampingnya bisa dibuka untuk menutupi daun telinganya saat cuaca dingin.
The Grand Old Man ini punya kebiasaan tidak akan memulai perkuliahan kalau belum merokok.
Karena bau rokok kreteknya yang khas, para mahasiswa akan bisa mengenali apabila Agus Salim mendekat ke dalam kelas. Atau apabila ruang kuliah dipindahkan, para mahasiswa hanya perlu mengikuti bau kretek rokok Agus Salim.
Agus Salim memaparkan 31 materi perkuliahannya dalam Bahasa Inggris, digelar setiap Sabtu siang. Hebatnya, meski menjelang malam mingguan, mahasiswa yang hadir selalu banyak.
Kisah lain tentang kebiasaan menyulut rokok kretek Agus Salim yang spektakuler adalah ketika dalam rangkaian acara kerajaan Inggris yaitu penobatan Ratu Elizabeth yang menggantikan ayahnya yang mangkat pada 4 Juni 1953.
Padahal Agus Salim sudah diwanti-wanti oleh diplomat pendamping, Robert Brash untuk tidak melakukan kebiasaannya itu di Westminster Abbey, saat penobatan Ratu Elizabeth berlangsung. Brash meminta agar Agus Salim berjanji untuk berhenti merokok sebelum memasuki gedung. Soalnya dalam perjalanan di mobil itu Agus Salim bagai kereta api yang terus menerus merokok.
Tiba waktunya jamuan makan malam yang berlangsung di Buckingham Palace. Agus Salim melihat Duke of Edinburg, suami sang Ratu nampak canggung. Agus Salim kemudian menghampiri Pangeran Phillip dan melambai-lambaikan rokok kretek yang telah disulutnya.
Agus Salim lalu berucap, “Apakah Paduka mengenal bau rokok ini?”
Pangeran Phillip ragu menjawab, “Rasanya saya tidak mengenal aroma ini, Tuan.”
“Inilah yang menyebabkan bangsa Paduka beramai-ramai mendatangi negeri saya,” balas Agus Salim, yang membuat Sang Pangeran tertawa sehingga suasana menjadi cair.
Itulah diplomasi rokok kretek Agus Salim yang memberikan kesan bagi Pangeran Phillip hingga ia mengenalkan Agus Salim kepada sang Ratu, “This gentleman comes from Indonesia.”
This topic is very interesting because each one of us is involved in it one way or another and we don’t realize the grave danger it poses to us as individuals and to our societies. It is very common to laugh at someone’s deficiencies such as pronunciation of a word perhaps in a different language, dressing style, lack of common sense or even pride of being from a particular tribe.
It is easier for us to judge and comment on other people than to judge and comment on ourselves. That’s the underlying fact of such behavior. No matter how much a person denies such a statement, he/ she knows that they are unable to judge and comment on themselves but very easily judge and comment on others. A very simple test will be to ask 10 of your friends to give their thoughts about such and such person and then observe. How many of those 10 friends will come out and say, I can’t comment on him/ her because I am not good enough or I am not the judge of that or we shouldn’t be doing this. With my experience the answer is 0. Yes zero. Now if you take 3 or 4 of these scenarios, then you may find 1 or if you are very lucky 2. Which comes out to say that 19 out of 20 or 38 out of 40 people find it easy and have no problems at all passing judgement and comments on other people. That is a staggering 95% of the people you interact with approximately daily. For a lot of people this is a type of entertainment and time kill activity. They make fun of someone, pass comments about that person or mimics their way of speaking, way of walking and what not, for no real reason.
The Supreme Power has created human beings and divided them into different tribes, countries, colors, languages, dialects, etc. Hence the diverse cultures we see today with anti-racial and anti-discrimination laws. Every language is different even though various words and meanings could have been derived from the same source. For example, Spanish language have a very strong presence of the sound ‘se or sa’ and no matter what the word is, there starting would be from the tongue in between the teeth. Similarly, Urdu has a letter called ‘pe’ which in English may represent the letter ‘P’. On the other hand Arabic doesn’t have any letter that represent ‘P’, hence they use ‘ba’ which in English may represent the letter ‘B’. So if you hear an Arabic person say Pepsi, it will sound like Bebsi and Poland will sound like Boland. Given these differences in letters and pronunciations, when a person lives his life in a certain country for extended periods, he/ she picks up the culture and norm of that country in order to gain acceptance and also to become a strong part of the community with effective communication skills.
The problem is when these people return to their home countries or travel to other places using the same dialect, it sounds funny to locals and everyone may share a laugh or two (in a lighter sense). However, there is a difference between laughing in front of the person, which is more or less a friendly gesture/behavior, as compared to laughing about that person on his/ her back with a group of like-minded friends or family, which is very rude. If that person heard the way you were making fun of his pronunciation, do you really think he/ she will laugh with you or he/ she will be hurt inside? This is a question that you need to think about.
If an English person can’t pronounce Arabic words or a British person can’t pronounce Australian English Dialect or an Asian can’t pronounce English words, yes it would be funny in a very gentle way. However, if you go to a group of friends or family and tell them, ‘Oh, did you know what happened today? Oh, did you know what David said?’ then you are in the wrong. Anything that you say at someone’s back and you know it will hurt him/ her, then you are doing something wrong and honestly speaking, there are very few things which will sound good in front of them and behind their backs. Most of things we generally talk about are offensive, rude and unethical.
Making fun, joking around and picking on someone is fine as long as it fulfills these conditions:
Looking at so many conditions gives another message and that is simply invest your time talking about something which is more useful than to make fun of someone.
Today’s generation may not agree with this post because our present environment is the opposite. However, I urge anyone and everyone who is reading this to reflect upon the subject matter for a brief moment, at the very least.
Most of my friends are getting married and having kids and here I am in my late twenties…still unmarried with no beau in sight and my ovaries nearing the date of expiration. Dramatic huh?
I used to feel really darn sad about it especially when all the Somali aunts would ask me when I’m getting married. Even felt so sorry for myself. I could just picture myself living alone with all my cats….just kidding! Okay, I lied I’m not really kidding. For a while I felt pretty depressed about the whole damn thing. Why couldn’t I find a decent, good looking man who was successful and could sweep me off my feet? What is wrong with me? What am I doing wrong? Why don’t I like any of the guys I talk to? Am I incapable of having feelings of attraction and love? It was pretty damn depressing and I was a pathetic mess shedding tears every time I ended things with someone. I took it so personally.
It was only in the recent year that I realized that there was absolutely nothing wrong with me and that I wasn’t devoid of any emotions. Last year I realized that none of the guys I had been talking to were my type nor were a good fit for me. They just weren’t right and it wasn’t my fault.
On top of that, when I finished my degree, I also realized that Allah was just trying to help me stay focused on my education. Every time I was involved in a fling with someone, my studies sort of tended to suffer. SO NOT OKAY. On top of that, I also think that I had a bit of growing up to do. When I think of who I am today and who I was when I was in my early twenties….I am much more mature and wiser now. More confident as well! I love who I am and I like how I look like unlike before. In the past, I was really self-conscious about my looks. I was always trying to look good so I can impress any potential cutie I may come across. It’s pretty sad and pathetic. Now, I don’t care what any man thinks about me. My physical features and my fashion style is who I am. They can accept and love me for me or keep it moving.
So now, it doesn’t bother me so much. I have an impressive educational background and I’m about to start a wonderful and fulfilling career unlike many of my “taken” friends. On top of that, I trust God. I know that I’ll meet whoever He intended for me soon and I’ll know it when I meet him.
