Ramadan in London  (03 June 2017)
"Yet again it has returned, the sublime and hallowed month of Ramadan - a beautiful and particularly sacred period..."

 

Happy Ramadan to Our Muslim Friends  (29 May 2017)
"I hope you join Mrs May and me in wishing all Muslims who haven't yet strapped explosives to their bodies a peaceful celebration of their peaceful festival. And anyway, no matter how many Muslims strap explosives to their bodies and then detonate them in the middle of crowds, nothing will shake my - and Mrs May's - belief in the peaceful nature of Islam. In case you haven't yet been forced to take compulsory lessons in basic Islam, I don't mind enlightening you that Ramadan celebrates the peaceful revelations God (aka Allah) vouchsafed to the peaceful prophet Mohammed, who had hitherto been robbing caravans - all very peacefully of course. In particular, all peaceful Muslims celebrate such peaceful revelations as these, all 300-odd if them:..."

 

Ramadan Rage: How Crime Increases During the Muslim Holy Month  (07 July 2014)
"Most people know the month-long fast is a time Muslims are expected to demonstrate self-control, humility and submission to the will of Allah. What you might not know is that throughout Ramadan emergency services are overwhelmed by a spike in crime - known as 'Ramadan rage', which affects not just Muslim countries, but cities with high concentrations of believers..."

 

Ramadan and Jihad  (02 July 2014)

"[C]ontrary to the belief that Ramadan is a time when no jihad or fighting should take place, it is the exact opposite. This month is in fact the time where Allah grants military victories to his followers through jihad. It is known in Islamic history as a key period for jihad. It goes back to year one in fact. But don't take my word for it. Consider the words of one Islamic website on this:..."

 

YouTubes and Videos

YOUTUBE:  The Spirit of Ramadan  (27 May 2017)
"On the first day of Ramadan 2017, jihadis in Afghanistan blew up 18 people. CNN, reporting the attack, insisted that the jihadis were opposing the spirit of Ramadan. But if Allah commands Muslims to wage jihad, and Ramadan is a time for reflecting on Allah's commands, how can terrorist attacks be opposed to the spirit of Ramadan?..."

YOUTUBE:  Ramadan Bombathon Begins: Ramadan 2017 Edition  (26 May 2017)
"Ramadan 2017 has arrived, which means that we're going to see a massive number of terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Allah. The website https://www.thereligionofpeace.com keeps a running tally of these terrorist attacks and compares them with the terrorist attacks carried out in the name of all other religions combined. Let's see if all religions are equally violent..."

The Religion of Peace
"Are all religions really the same?  Is 'Islamophobia' a bigger problem than Islamic terror?  Is it really even a 'phobia'... or is Islam genuinely different?  Let's find out.  Let's keep score during Islam's holiest month."

 

The Curse of Cain

"After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, ... 'Cursed shall you be from the earth', ... and so it has been. The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, ... They become worshippers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children. Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones. Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies. ... Cain sows fields of corpses of the innocent for the Lord and he still does not understand why his sacrifice is not accepted and why the earth he dwells on is cursed. ...  From Iraq to Iran, from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia, from Nigeria to Somalia, from Pakistan to Indonesia, he holds up human heads and cries 'Allahu Akbar'. ... There is no room for Cain anywhere. Where he remains there will be death and suffering. He will kill because it is all he can do. He has nothing else to offer the world, his own kind, or the Creator.. ... He kills from one end of the world to the next and it is never his fault. Each time, each Abel did it. ... His code is cruelty and his holy book is written in blood on the flayed skins of his murdered victims. ... The cries of peoples long vanished from the earth warn us that we will either drive out Cain or his curse will fill our lands with blood and dust and all that we love and all that we have worked for will die at his cursed touch."

 

The Burden Which Habakkuk the Prophet Saw

The righteous cry out for God's punishment of the injustice in their lands:
O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!
Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

The LORD God answers:
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs.
They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
And their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.

The dismay of the righteous at God's answer:   
Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die.
O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity:
Wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

The LORD God's reassurance to the righteous:
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

[Habakkuk 1:1-2:4]
