ALERT: Taxpayer Funded Abortion in DELAWARE

Delaware allows abortions through all nine months. DE law says abortion is allowed up to the point of "viability." When the Democrat Legislators were asked to define "viability," it was made clear - it's when the abortion doctor says it is. (SB 5, 2017)

As of last year, Delaware now allows not only doctors to perform abortions, but nurse practitioners also. The Democrat controlled General Assembly also passed a bill two years ago to protect abortion doctors from any malpractice accountability. (HB 320, 2022; HB 455, 2022; HB 31, 2021)

AS IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH, now Delaware's Democrat legislators expect YOU to pay for these abortions. Yes, you read that correctly...
DE's Democrat Legislators want YOU to FULLY fund in-state abortions with your tax dollars! 
Contact the House Health & Human Development Committee today to say, Absolutely NO! We do not want our money used to murder preborn children!
Use the talking points on the link below to ask the Representatives not to release HB 110 from committee.

HB 110 Talking Points:

~Dismembering a child is NOT healthcare.
~Lethally injecting a child in the heart or head is NOT healthcare.
~Abortion, which is all of the above plus more, is NOT healthcare.
2. HB 110 is meant to increase abortions - that's why they want you to pay for it! The bill targets "services related to termination of pregnancy" with no specific limitations.
3. HB 110 requires all insurance providers to fully cover abortions. Insurance companies cannot even require a co-pay, deductibles, or any other cost sharing methods under this bill.
The demand is for nothing short of full participation in the murder of the preborn without any personal responsibility.
4. HB 110 has weak religious exemptions. At first glance, it seems that the bill allows religious employers to opt out of covering for abortions. But the problem is that this only applies to "bona fide" -- genuine -- religious convictions. Who or what determines which religious convictions are genuine? You know what this does? HB 110 makes any religious employer a target for a lawsuit for not paying for an abortion! 
5. HB 110 is broad with no specific definitions. Without definitions, the bill is vague and left open for inconsistent interpretation. That's the point. We saw and read the original bill language before this version was filed. The intent was "in your face" crystal clear. So here are the questions to ask your legislator and the committee:

~ How does this bill affect minors? Are they covered on their parents' insurance, and would they be notified?
~ Are late-term abortions covered as well? The bill doesn't specify a gestational age limit.
~ What about babies who survive abortion attempts? Does this bill cover medical support for those babies? Or what about mothers who require emergency intervention after a botched abortion?

The intentions are clear: the bill's supporters intend to FULLY fund abortion on demand -- for any reason whatsoever.

IT'S A LIE TO BELIEVE YOUR VOICE DOESN'T MATTER! Your legislators need to hear from you to know that this is important. Your voice is the conscience of the state. Your voice emboldens pro-life legislators to stand firm and unapologetically for the truth! PLEASE share this email!
Send in your comment today, then watch your inbox for instructions on how to give a 2-minute testimony at the hearing this Wednesday, April 5th at 11am. We need people to speak for the voiceless!

Share! Share! Share! Help us reach 5000 who will stand for Life and say "NO" to taxpayer funded abortion in Delaware!
For Life,
Nandi Randolph
Policy Analyst

P.S. Pray for the defeat of this bill, for the courage of our pro-life allies, and especially for those who know this is wrong but feel too intimidated to stand. Pray intently for changed hearts of the Delaware Legislators who are advancing this godless agenda. 

Massive 118,000 Myocarditis Cases Among AMERICAN Children Due to Covid Jab Says Dr. Richard Urso

Much of the Covid pandemic and the government’s espoused treatment of the virus has been dangerously mismanaged, and nobody knows this better than Dr. Richard Urso. Richard is an esteemed scientist and ophthalmologist who explains why several of the Covid treatment protocols encouraged by the “experts” are neither safe nor effective. Richard breaks down the science behind why masking doesn’t protect against infection and pointedly highlights the contradictory statements of Dr. Anthony Fauci, whom Richard says guided the nation on a foundation of fear. He also discusses the alarming increase in deaths and horrendous damage due to receiving the Covid jab among young children and young adults around the globe.

Judge Moves to Force Trump to Stop Talking About His Case

NYC Judge Reportedly Set to Slap a Gag Order on Trump

NYC Judge Reportedly Set to Slap a Gag Order on Trump



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Ever since the news broke about his indictment, Donald Trump has been rising in the polls and getting a big boost in campaign donations, demonstrating that the whole banana-republic endeavor is backfiring spectacularly on the Leftist establishment that is determined to find something, anything, it can use to destroy Trump. So now a federal judge is moving to put an end to the Trump momentum by slapping a gag order on the candidate ahead of his anticipated arrest on Tuesday. Is a silent Trump a neutralized Trump? We shall see. And is such a gag order even legal? What do the Leftist elites care about that anymore, if they ever did?

The UK’s Daily Mail on Sunday quoted an anonymous source saying: “The Trump legal team now thinks that the Manhattan judge will take the unprecedented step of silencing the presidential frontrunner with an unconstitutional gag order tomorrow.” Trump’s team is not taking this lying down: “The Trump legal team is considering adding a First Amendment lawyer to the effort to combat this and will fight it all the way.” If the gag order is put in place, Trump could incur a fine and a prison sentence of up to a month for violating it.

The gag order looms after Trump has made numerous comments about the case against him, including this one: “The Corrupt D.A. has no case. What he does have is a venue where it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to get a Fair Trial (it must be changed!), and a Trump-Hating Judge, hand selected by the Soros backed D.A. (he must be changed!). Also has the DOJ working in the D.A.’s Office – Unprecedented!”

And: “I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support you have given me against this assault on our Nation. Our once beautiful USA is now a Nation in Decline. Radical Left Thugs & Insurrectionists have taken over our Country, & are rapidly destroying it. They are using the levers of Law Enforcement, and have completely Weaponized the FBI & DOJ to Interfere with, Rigg, and Steal our once SACRED ELECTIONS. We are now living in a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY, but we will Come Back & MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Why, we can’t have the man going on about how the FBI and the “Justice” Department have been weaponized against America-First patriots, can we? Gag him!

Most recently, Trump wrote simply, and in all caps: “ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!” This sort of thing will never do: exposing the Left’s hypocrisy about elections in the context of commenting on the political persecution of the chief opposition candidate. This man must be silenced, pronto, or people are going to start to get the idea that everything is not on the up-and-up with the Leftist establishment!

Trump has also noted the bias of the judge who is now poised to slap the gag order upon him: “The Judge ‘assigned’ to my Witch Hunt Case, a ‘Case’ that has NEVER BEEN CHARGED BEFORE, HATES ME. His name is Juan Manuel Marchan, was hand-picked by Bragg & the Prosecutors, & is the same person who ‘railroaded’ my 75-year-old former CFO, Allen Weisselberg, to take a ‘plea’ deal (Plead GUILTY, even if you are not, 90 DAYS, fight us in Court, 10 years (life!) in jail. He strong-armed Allen, which a judge is not allowed to do, & treated my companies, which didn’t ‘plead,’ VICIOUSLY. APPEALING!” Like all Leftists, Marchan clearly hates criticism and dissent. Hence the gag order. Only the point of view of Marchan and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg should be heard.

The Daily Mail added that “Trump’s campaign announced that the former president would make a speech at his Mar-a-Lago home on Tuesday evening after returning from New York. That could now be in doubt.” He is going to New York to be arrested, as he himself noted: “I will be leaving Mar-a-Lago on Monday at 12 noon, heading to Trump Tower in New York. On Tuesday morning I will be going to, believe it or not, the Courthouse. America was not supposed to be this way!” That’s right, but that’s what America is now, and even if Trump’s case is quickly dismissed, as his lawyers are working to bring about, a dangerous precedent has been set.

The Left is avid to crush dissent and make America a one-party state or a two-party state in which its opposition is made up of good and faithful servants of the Left such as Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, and Adam Kinzinger. Trump is standing in the way. Trying to force him to be silent is completely consistent with everything else the Left is doing to him and to the rest of us.

Doctor Sued for Coercing Minor Children to Get Vaccinated




Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

A mother in Washington, DC is suing a doctor for allegedly forcing her teenage daughter and son to receive COVID-19 shots without her informed consent. NaToya McNeil claims that Janine Rethy, MD, MPH, chief of community pediatrics at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, isolated her children in a room in a mobile clinic and refused to let them leave until they were forcibly vaccinated for COVID.1

The children, 14 and 16 years old, were at the mobile clinic for a routine annual check-up. They were given false information about vaccination requirements and were not allowed to leave the room to consult with their mother who was waiting right outside the clinic. The children had informed the doctor that their mother was available and waiting just outside the clinic with their baby brother. However, the doctor apparently made no attempt to contact the mother to obtain her consent to vaccination.

The children were misinformed that if they did not get the COVID shots they would not be able to attend school. The daughter was also injected with the meningococcal vaccine and the son was given the DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis) vaccine without their mother’s knowledge or consent. The mother never received a vaccine information statement for any of the products injected into her children prior to the vaccinations being administered by the doctor, which is a  violation of a safety provision in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. The children were not advised how to recognize a vaccine adverse reaction or provided any information about what to do in the event they experienced a reaction.2

The daughter submitted to the doctor’s demand because she was afraid that she would no longer be allowed to attend school. The son reportedly was not even asked whether he wanted the shots at all and was injected without any discussion. He thought he had to get them because he saw that his older sister received them.3

Mother Sues for False Imprisonment, Battery, and Fraud

McNeil is suing the doctor for false imprisonment, battery, and fraud. She is strongly opposed to her children receiving all vaccines, including the COVID shots. The children were also against getting the shots and had already declined them several times in the past.4

Mcneil stated:

I just feel like people shouldn’t be able to do whatever they want to do to other people and especially not to children. As a mother, you just “took all my rights away from me to do what you wanted to do to my kids… To do that to my little children, my innocent children. They took their rights.5

While a COVID vaccine mandate was implemented by the DC City Council for children attending public schools in Washington, D.C. in July 2022, it was rescinded shortly afterward and postponed until the 2023 school year begins.6

Dr. Rethy is strongly pro-vaccine, stating, “Our goal is to increase vaccination rates in children here in DC.”7

Washington, DC Officials Want Minors Vaccinated Without Parents’ Consent or Knowledge

In December 2021, the District of Columbia City Council enacted the Minor Consent for Vaccination Act of 2020 (MCA) permitting minors as young as 11 years old to receive a vaccine recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) without their parent’s consent or knowledge when the provider determines that the child is capable of understanding and exercising informed consent. For purposes of implementing the minor consent law, a doctor can determine that a minor is capable of meeting the informed consent standard if they are “able to comprehend the need for, the nature of, and any significant risks ordinarily inherent in the medical care” and receive an age-appropriate vaccine information sheet at the time of vaccination.”8

The Minor Consent Act prohibits the insurance company from sending an Explanation of Benefits to the child’s home and the provider must send the shot record directly to the school when the child has a religious exemption, or the parents opted out of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in order to prevent a parent from being made aware of their own child’s vaccination status.9 10 If a parent is unaware a child has received vaccinations, the parent cannot monitor the child for signs and symptoms of a vaccine reaction and may delay seeking medical care, which could result in the permanent injury or death of the child.

The chair of the DC Health Committee, Vincent C. Gray, shared that the DC Council quickly passed the Minor Consent Act during the first online reading  of the bill without any public testimony because “the hope of an imminent corona­virus vaccine gave the bill new urgency.”11 12
DC Council member and primary sponsor of the bill Mary Cheh explained:

And given our ongoing pandemic and the incredible work being done to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, it’s more important than ever I think that we reduce any and all barriers to these treatments and this legislation aims to do just that by increasing access to vaccines for minors who choose to get vaccinated but have not been able to do so.13 14

Minor Children Were Not Meant to Make Vaccination Decisions by Themselves

The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (“The Act”) passed by Congress never intended that minor children would be making vaccination decisions for themselves. Vaccine safety informing, recording and reporting provisions included in that historic law were specifically designed to give parents more information about vaccines so they can help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths. The 1986 Act stipulates that a health care provider must give a copy of vaccine information published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is known today as the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS), to the “parent or legal representative of any child to whom the provider intends to administer such vaccine.”15 The CDC has confirmed on its website that the vaccine information is to be provided to the parent or legal guardian for review before  the child is vaccinated.16

Adolescents do not have the physical, mental, or emotional development to make a well-reasoned decision in healthcare matters that involve risk including death.17 Adolescents also do not have the financial means to seek medical intervention should they have an adverse reaction to vaccination. All vaccinations pose a risk of injury and death as evidenced by the establishment of the federal government’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) which has paid out approximately nearly $5 billion to those injured by vaccines.18 19

DC Continues the Push to Vaccinate Minors Without Parental Consent

The MCA was struck down by a DC court in March 2022 when two parents brought suit against the Mayor of Washington, DC alleging that the MCA violated their constitutional and statutory rights and that the MCA is preempted by federal law. Judge Trevor McFadden found, among other factors, that the MCA conflicts with vaccine safety provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986.

In place of the MCA, the DC Council enacted the Consent for Vaccinations of Minors Emergency Amendment Act of 2022 (“Emergency Vaccination of Minors Act”) as an emergency measure in June 2022.  The Emergency Vaccination of Minors Act allows an emancipated minor child, a married or previously married minor child, a pregnant minor child, a homeless minor child, or any minor child who is separated from and not supported by her parents or guardian for any reason to get any vaccine recommended by the ACIP without parental knowledge or consent if the parent cannot be immediately contacted.20

The Emergency Vaccination of Minors Act further provides that a vaccine provider may vaccinate any and all minors, including a minor not falling into one of the above categories, as long as a reasonable attempt is made to obtain parental consent to vaccination by telephone, writing or in person. All that is required is an undefined “reasonable attempt” to reach the parent or legal guardian for the provider to be justified in giving a vaccine to a child. Consent to vaccination may be assumed by the vaccine provider should a reasonable attempt to notify the parent or legal guardian has been made.21

While the Consent for Vaccinations of Minors Emergency Amendment Act of 2022 has expired, the Consent for Vaccination of Minors Amendment Act of 2022 with the same provisions went into effect on Mar. 10, 2023.22

44 Retired Generals and Admirals Issue a Public Rebuke to the Bidenites

Asking the Biden administration to provide Israel with the weapons it needs.



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Joe Biden has assured the world that Iran will not acquire nuclear weapons “on my watch.” How much credence ought the people of Israel, who will be the ones most affected should Iran acquire a nuclear weapon, give to this assurance? None at all. Israelis cannot entrust their national survival to assurances from Joe Biden and the Bidenites, who have yet to say how they would prevent the acquisition by Iran of nuclear weapons, by stating clearly that “we will use our military power to destroy all of Iran’s nuclear facilities” if Tehran enriches uranium beyond a certain point.

Israel is now preparing for an attack on Iran it hopes it will not ever have to launch. It hopes instead that the Supreme Leader and the rest of his regime will call a halt to their nuclear program before it reaches a stage that will require Israel to act.

Now 44 retired American generals and admirals have made public a letter to the President and to Congress, asking that Israel be supplied with advanced weapons for use in a possible attack on Iran. More on this letter’s contents can be found here: “To Prevent Nuclear Iran, US Should Arm Israel, Write 44 Retired Generals and Admirals,” JNS, March 21, 2023:

In a March 20 open letter issued by the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA), 44 retired U.S. generals and admirals asked the White House and Congress to “immediately provide Israel with the advanced weapons it needs to deter and prevent a nuclear Iran.”

“Iran is coming ever closer to crossing the nuclear threshold and, thereby, sparking a crisis in the Middle East,” according to the letter released by the Washington, D.C. nonprofit. It first appeared in The Hill on March 21.

The signatories added that Washington should apply lessons from the one-year-old conflict in Ukraine: “It’s vital to arm capable and willing partners facing regional threats, and best to do so before conflict erupts.”

“As retired American military leaders who devoted our lives to the defense of our nation, we prefer a diplomatic solution that would genuinely end the threat posed by Iran’s escalating nuclear program,” they wrote. “But no such deal is imminent, nor realistic.”

Herman Shelanski, a Jewish retired vice admiral who signed the letter, told JNS that projecting strength is a very important way to dissuade would-be aggressors.

“The focus for the United States is to remain a very strong and powerful military to avoid having to go to war. There are countries that look at signs of weakness and will act if they perceive weakness,” he said.

Just as the United States delivered arms to Ukraine, it should do the same for Israel, according to Shelanski. “Frankly, we hope no one else messes with them. That deterrence in strength and in arms could eventually prevent worse things from happening,” he said. “Better to be strong and prevent than to have to go to war.”

Only Israel has the means, will and ability to stop Iran from crossing the nuclear threshold imminently, the letter stated.

This is a public rebuke to the Bidenites, who have the means, but not the will, to stop Iran. The admirals and generals who signed this letter know that it is Israel alone that will act to stop Iran’s nuclear project, and they want to ensure that Israel has “the means” to do so.

To that end, it said, the United States should sell, lease or place in position Boeing KC-46 Pegasus aerial refueling tankers; McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle and Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter jets; and precision-guided munitions.

Iran is very far from Israel, and in order for IAF planes to fly all the way to Iran and back, they will need to be refueled in the air. Israel has on order four KC-46 Pegasus refueling tankers, but as things stand now, delivery is not expected until 2024 and 2025. Meanwhile, the USAF already has 68 KC-46 tankers in its arsenal, with another 60 on order. Surely the Air Force can spare just four of them for delivery to Israel, which needs those planes now, not in a year or two. If the Americans announce that they are immediately going to deliver to the IAF those four refueling tankers, that will get Iran’s attention and may cause sufficient alarm about an imminent Israeli strike that the Iranian leaders will stop their uranium enrichment program.

“JINSA organized this letter because many leading U.S. military leaders understand that Iran’s unprecedented nuclear escalation represents a dire threat to American security interests, and that Israel has demonstrated the most will to counter Iran and prevent its achieving nuclear capability,” Michael Makovsky, president and CEO of JINSA, told JNS.

“Hopefully, this letter will help galvanize more Democrats and Republicans in Congress to press the Biden administration to expedite to Israel the military tools it needs to defend itself and prevent a nuclear Iran,” he said.

Shelanski thinks that the letter will have an impact.

“It’s always a battle, but I’m optimistic,” he said. “Maybe we will not see everything on the list, but we will see a better supply to Israel so that it can be better prepared for this.”

One weapon that does not appear on the list these retired generals and admirals think should be provided to Israel is the 30,000-pound Massive Ordnance Projectile (MOP), or “bunker buster,” that Israel will need if it is to succeed in destroying the nuclear facilities underground at Natanz or inside a mountain at Fordow. In 2020, two members of the House proposed a resolution asking the American government to sell Israel its largest bunker buster, the GBU-57A/B Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP). Nothing came of that effort. Without the GBU-57A/B in its arsenal, it will be impossible for Israel to destroy, for example, the nuclear facility at Fordow, which is built 295 feet underground. But perhaps — it’s not clear — the mention in the letter of “precision-guided munitions” may refer to the GBU-57A/B bunker buster bomb.

Perhaps the retired officers were worried that if they called outright for those bunker-buster bombs to be supplied to Israel, rather than offering, as they did, merely a mention of unspecified “precision-guided munitions,” this would so clearly be a signal to Tehran that the Americans are preparing Israel for war against the Islamic Republic, that Iran might lash out now with attacks on American forces still in Syria and Iraq.

But the letter is a good start, reminding everyone that Israel will take on the task the Bidenites have avoided and that at the very least, it ought to be provided with the tools – the weapons – it needs to be successful. The aerial refueling tankers could be delivered to Israel at once from the American arsenal. The 30,000-pound bunker-buster bombs, which I assume are meant to be included under the rubric of “precision-guided munitions,” should certainly be provided to Israel as well; these bombs are the key to Israel’s success. This open letter puts more pressure on the Bidenites, who need to realize that if Israel is willing to take on the monumental task of stopping Iran’s nuclear program, it deserves to receive whatever weapons it will need from the American military. Once it has fulfilled its mission, this will make not just the Jewish state but also the Sunni Arab states of the Gulf, and the rest of the region, too, much more secure, when the largest terrorist state, Iran, has seen its nuclear program devastated.

European Catholic & Anglican Churches Celebrating Ramadan & Iftar

France: Catholic church to host Ramadan iftar during Easter octave



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Isn’t this wonderful? Now: when is the Easter celebration at the local mosque? What’s that? Never? These expressions of generosity and outreach always and in every case only go in one direction, and are never reciprocated. Now, why is that?

“Lille: during the Easter octave, we will celebrate iftar at the St-Pierre-St-Paul church,” translated from “Lille : durant l’octave pascale, on fêtera l’iftar à l’église St-Pierre-St-Paul,” by Gabrielle Cluzel, BVoltaire, March 27, 2023:

The Easter octave, that is to say the eight days following Easter, is not new. It was the Emperor Constantine, in the 4th century, who introduced it into the Catholic liturgy: it is a question, in the daily mass, of “reviving the event of Easter Sunday.” By songs and texts taken from Easter, we mean to “remember that the Resurrection extends beyond the Easter feast,” we can read on the site of the Catholic Church in France. During this period, “the newly baptized on Easter night wear their white garments.”

This year, the Thursday of the Octave of Easter will be a little special in the Saint-Pierre-Saint-Paul church in Lille, the priest welcoming there for the second consecutive year… “the iftar under the stars.” This breaking of the Ramadan fast (according to the definition given by the Larousse of iftar) is part of the “nomadic scene for the time of a moon” imagined by the association (duly supported and subsidized by public funds) Attacafa (culture, in Arabic) which, since 1984, has made a point of “creolizing the cultural places of the region and the metropolis [of Lille] to fight against all forms of ethnocentrism.” Hats off to the artist. Celebrate the breaking of the Ramadan fast in a church, you had to dare. The soothing presentation, as coated in sugar as the pastries associated with the event in the collective imagination, obviously aims to extinguish the prejudices of the most refractory: “This festival offers you, through a desacralized program, to take share in this time of sharing, celebration and tolerance, because this is also the meaning of this particular month.”

For the modest sum of 10 € (full price), and with a reservation, you can start the evening of April 13 by listening to the concert of Turkish singers and musicians Gülay Hacer Toruk and Fawaz Baker. Then, from 8:41 p.m., according to the Allevents and Lille Actu site, “the members of the association “Turkish women from the North” will prepare the meal!

On the side of the diocese, there is a tendency to minimize the event and to keep its distance: according to the communication manager contacted by Boulevard Voltaire, this welcome should only be seen as an “initiative of the parish and not of the diocese” to “live in friendship with our Muslim brothers. And no meal, in any case on the spot. The priest has lent his church ‘only’ for the concert, as he does for secular concerts insofar as respect for this consecrated place, not for the banquet. A priori the banquet will take place outside the church,” says one to Boulevard Voltaire. The sites announcing the iftar, however, suggest the opposite, giving no other meeting place after the concert.

Perhaps the parish priest of Saint-Pierre-Saint-Paul and the Attacafa association found their inspiration not far from there, on the other side of the border, in Molenbeek? In June 2016, according to the Saphir News website, a giant fast-breaking meal (iftar) was organized at the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church. 600 people responded “to share a meal prepared mainly by volunteers from mosques and Muslim associations in the town”: “A fraternal gesture, which [was] nothing more than a sign of the good relations […] established over time between Christians and Muslims.” Relations somewhat cooled, we will agree, over the attacks of March 22 in Brussels and the many edifying reports on this city that followed.

Perhaps, who knows, the Lille initiative also aims to restore the image of Wazemmes – a popular district of Lille where the Saint-Pierre-Saint-Paul church is located. The reputation of this district was somewhat tarnished in 2016 by a vitriolic open letter from a CNRS researcher, Philippe Froguel – a former leftist sympathizer yet – to Martine Aubry: according to this diabetes specialist, the middle classes and students had fled the neighborhood because the living conditions there had become very difficult, in particular due to “community regression.” He had given as an illustration “the ordeal” experienced by the women in his laboratory, objects of “contemptuous demonstrations by Islamists of all stripes.”

Will this (repeated) gesture of friendship disarm “Islamists of all stripes,” whose presence, seven years later, cannot be doubted, whether residual (if one is optimistic) or exponential (if we are not)…or to be taken by them as a huge symbolic victory?


UK: Anglican cathedral to host Ramadan iftar during Easter season

Once again, do these Christians really think that this will change what the Qur’an teaches about Christ and Christianity?

Qur’an 98:4-6: “Nor were the people of the book divided until after the clear proof came to them. And they are not ordered to do anything else but serve Allah, keeping religion pure for him, as hanifs, and to establish prayer and
to give alms. That is true religion. Indeed, the unbelievers among the people of the book and the idolaters will remain in the fire of Gehenna. They are the most vile of created beings.”

Qur’an 5:14: “And with those who say: Indeed, we are Christians, we made a covenant, but they forgot a part of what they were reminded about. Therefore we have stirred up enmity and hatred among them until the day of resurrection, when Allah will inform them of their handiwork.”

Qur’an 5:17: “They indeed have disbelieved who say, Indeed, Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. Say, Who then can do anything against Allah, if he had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth? To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He creates what he wills. And Allah is able to do all things.”

Qur’an 4:157: “And because of their saying, We killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the messenger of Allah, they did not kill him nor crucify him, but it seemed so to them, and indeed, those who disagree about this are in doubt about it, they have no knowledge of it except pursuit of a supposition, they did not kill him for certain.

Qur’an 4:171: “O people of the book, do not exaggerate in your religion or say anything about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and his word that he conveyed to Mary, and a spirit from him. So believe in Allah and his messengers, and do not say Three, Stop, it is better for you. Allah is only one God. It is far removed from his transcendent majesty that he should have a son. Everything that is in the heavens and everything that is on the earth is his. And Allah is sufficient as defender.”

Qur’an 5:116: “And when Allah said, O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to mankind, Take me and my mother as two gods besides Allah? He said, Be glorified. It was not for me to say what I had no right to say. If I said it, then you know it. You know what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in your mind. Indeed, you, only you, are the knower of hidden things.”

Qur’an 19:35: “It is not fitting for Allah that he should take to himself a son. Glory be to him, when he decrees a thing, he says to it only, Be, and it is.”

Qur’an 9:30-31: “And the Jews say, Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say, The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the statements of those who disbelieved before. May Allah curse them. How perverse they are. They have taken as lords besides Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah, the son of Mary, when they were called to worship only one God. There is no God except him. May he be glorified from all that they ascribe as partners.”

Qur’an 9:29: “Fight against those do not believe in Allah or the last day, and do not forbid what Allah and his messenger have forbidden, and do not follow the religion of truth, even if they are among the people of the book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”

The Dean of Southwark and Southwark Cathedral are delighted to be hosting the seventh Grand Iftar with Living Bankside.

This year’s theme and focus is on young people (our future) and their role in society. Accordingly the event has been organised by and will be delivered by young people from across London. A number of young people’s organisations will be represented at the Iftar.

Living Bankside in partnership with Southwark Cathedral and the Association of Muslim Lawyers has gained a reputation in its efforts towards promoting community cohesion and collaboration with all age groups, ethnicities and faiths, including those of no particular faith. This has created an inclusive platform for building positive relationships between people from diverse backgrounds.

The Iftar will bring all communities together to celebrate Ramadan, to promote resilience and to share the common values of Hope, Peace and Unity. At the core of our values and mission (Living Bankside, Southwark Cathedral and the Association of Muslim Lawyers) is compassion. We invite you on this occasion and in the future to join us in whichever way you can to spread compassion. The evening will include performances and speeches, followed by the opening of the fast….

“Ramadan is not a month of laziness but rather a month of activity, of effort, and of hard work, and as it also was in the life of the Prophet, a month of jihad, conquest, and victory.” — Palestinian Authority Supreme Sharia Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash

“Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.” — Qaedat al-Jihad

“Ramadan is the pious month of ‘Jihad-o-Qital’ (Jihad and killing). Those who attain martyrdom while waging Jihad, doors of heaven remain open.” — Maulana Bashir Ahmad Khaki
