David Cameron to abstain in Palestine statehood vote



Source: BBC News (article now retitled as Commons debating Palestine statehood recognition)

David Cameron is to abstain in a parliamentary vote on recognising Palestine as a state, the UK prime minister's spokesman has said.

Labour MP Grahame Morris is presenting the motion, which has the backing of the Labour shadow cabinet, on Monday.

The vote is symbolic and would not change government policy but could have international implications.

In 2012 the UN General Assembly voted to upgrade the Palestinians' status to that of "non-member observer state".

The assembly voted 138 to nine in favour, with 41 nations - including the UK - abstaining.

Amendment

Current UK government policy, as set out by former Foreign Secretary William Hague, is that it "reserves the right to recognise a Palestinian state bilaterally at the moment of our choosing and when it can best help bring about peace".

Mr Morris's motion states that "this House believes that the government should recognise the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel".

The prime minister's official spokesman said: "The government's position is very clear and hasn't changed, so I think that is a very clear indication of the British government's approach.

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #90


AYTD just wanted to remind our readers about the reason behind showing these Qur'an Quotes. The Qur'an is the backbone of Islam - it's a gift of guidance coming directly from God Himself for us to follow Not only does it outline how best for us to live our lives, but it also validates its Truth and sincerity from start to finish via the many Ayat; undeniable proofs and evidence that back up its claims. From how a baby is formed in the womb, to expressing the floating and orbiting of planets, stars and the moons, to divulging that all moving living creatures have come from water. These and many other revelations are being discovered by science and other means Centuries after the Qur'an's  disclosure to the world.

The Qur'an Quotes are just re-iterating the numerous miracles that God has Willed with the most consummate ease... And yet they still deny. Until the Day of Judgement have people been constantly doubting and trying to disprove the Truth of God and of Islam. The latest that I came across was that Allah is a moon god. The source of such statements came from what I believed to be a highly reputable place, and I admit, I was tested in my faith. So what did I do? I "done my research" and went not to any source, but the only source for restoration of my beliefs... The Qur'an.

So, what does the Qur'an have to say about Allah being a moon god? I had a look, and found out that as you may already know; Allah is no such thing. He explicitly says that He is different from the moon (as he has created and subjected them to run for an appointed term, whereas He is infinite), for us not to prostrate to the moon as we should not also to the sun - He even says in Surah 76; Al-Insan (Man or Time) that there is no sun or moon in Heaven! It delivered more than I asked for.

If you ever feel in doubt about anything, please seek comfort in Allah and His Mercy; it'll come to you at the right time.

Jordan Maxwell and Yoel Natan; these Quotes are dedicated to you.


"And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him."
(Surah 41: Fussilat (Explained in detail); verse 37)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #89


"If you were to ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon?" They will surely reply: "Allah." How then are they deviating (as polytheists and disbelievers)?
Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves, and straitens it for whom (He wills). Verily, Allah is the All-Knower of everything.
If you were to ask them: "Who sends down water (rain) from the sky, and gives life therewith to the earth after its death?" They will surely reply: "Allah." Say: "All the praises and thanks be to Allah!" Nay! Most of them have no sense.
And this life of the world is only amusement and play! Verily, the home of the Hereafter, that is the life indeed (i.e. the eternal life that will never end), if they but knew."
(Surah 29: Al-Ankabut (The Spider); verses 61-64)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #88


And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said to his father Azar: "Do you take idols as aliha (gods)? Verily, I see you and your people in manifest error. "
Thus did we show Ibrahim (Abraham) the kingdom of the heavens and the earth that he be one of those who have Faith with certainty.
When the night covered him over with darkness he saw a star. He said: "This is my lord." But when it set, he said: "I like not those that set."
When he saw the moon rising up, he said: "This is my lord." But when it set, he said: "Unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among the erring people."
When he saw the sun rising up, he said: "This is my lord. This is greater." But when it set, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from all that you join as partners in worship with Allah.

Muslim NFL Player's 'Prayer Penalty'



Source: BBC Sport


An American Muslim NFL player has been penalised after celebrating a touchdown by dropping to his knees in prayer.

Husain Abdullah scored for the Kansas City Chiefs as they defeated the New England Patriots 41-14.

Officials penalised him for breaking "excessive celebration" rules by sliding on his knees and pressing his forehead to the ground after scoring.

It is unclear if the 15-yard penalty was for sliding or praying but an NFL director said the decision was wrong.

National Football League rules state that "players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground", but there is an exception for going to ground for prayer.

Michael Signora, NFL's vice president of communications, tweeted: "Abdullah should not have been penalised. Officiating mechanic is not to flag player who goes to ground for religious reasons."

American football fans took to social media to point out that there were plenty of Christian players who marked their touchdowns with signs of deference or religious tributes.

Abdullah, 29, told the Kansas City Star newspaper that game officials had said nothing to him at the time but the Chiefs' coach had told him he had been penalised for sliding.

"I don't think it was because of the actual prostration that I got the penalty," he told the AP news agency. "I think it was because of the slide."

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, an advocacy group, called on the NFL to explain the reason for the penalty.

"To prevent the appearance of a double standard, we urge league officials to clarify the policy on prayer and recognise that the official made a mistake in this case," spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said.

Abdullah, a devout Muslim, missed the entire 2012 season to go on a Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca with his brother, another NFL player.

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #87


"And marry those among you who are single (i.e. a man who has no wife and the woman who has no husband) and (also marry) the Salihun (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves). If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficent for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing (about the state of the people)."

(Surah #24: An-Nur (The Light); verse 32)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #87


"And do not marry Al-Mushrikat (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allah Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress, etc.), even though she pleases you. And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun till they believe (in Allah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater, etc.), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikun) invite you to the Fire, but Allah invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember."

(Surah #2: Al-Baqarah (The Cow); verse 221)

AYTD's: Qur'an Quote #85


"Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your foster mother who gave you suck, your foster milk suckling sisters, your wives' mothers, your step daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom you have gone in - but there is no sin on you if you have not gone in them (to marry their daughters), - the wives of your sons who (spring) from your own loins, and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed; verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
(Surah #4: An-Nisa' (The Women); verse 23)

"Black Jesus" - Season 1 Episode 1




AYTD has just watched this premiere episode and thought it was fairly funny. Perhaps the bad language was a tad excessive, but I assume it's trying to be authentic to the perceived nature of overall life and culture within the black community of Compton.

Although the show does play out the theme as Jesus being the Son of God, the Lord Saviour that died on the cross for all of our sins as detailed in Christian faith, the human qualities of making mistakes and being susceptible to one's weaknesses shows that even JC is somewhat fallible. Displays such as smoking weed and encouraging alcohol drinking points out to us that much like us mere mortals, Jesus also indulges in things he'd be better off without. At one point he even put his feet up at his homie's mum's home; he soon apologised for his action, but it is again another example of how Jesus is capable of flawed behaviour. These instances seem to adhere closer to how Islam refers to Jesus. Although he is indeed the Messiah having been born via the immaculate conception and having the holy spirit instilled into him from birth, The Qur'an shows that he is no more or less a human being than you or I - 

"The Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary), was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him. His mother [Maryam (Mary)] was a Siddiqah [i.e. she believed in the words of Allah and His Books (see Verse 66:12)]. They both used to eat food (as any other human being, while Allah does not eat). Look how We make the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to them, yet look how they are deluded away (from the truth)."
(Surah 5; Surah Al-Ma'idah (The Table Spread with Food), verse 75)

This above verse from The Book gives a great example of not only how God and Jesus are not the same or parts of a God that make the one God, but also how they are different. the two verses below go a bit further to explain that God is not related to Jesus (nor anyone or anything else for that matter):

"And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allah) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Iesa (Christ)], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)].""
(Surah 19; Maryam [Mary], verse 88)


"He to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and Who has begotten no son (children or offspring) and for Whom there is no partner in the dominion. He has created everything, and has measured it exactly according to its due measurements.
Yet they have taken besides Him other aliha (gods) that created nothing but are themselves created, and possess neither hurt nor benefit for themselves, and possess no power (of causing) death, nor (of giving) life, nor of raising the dead."

(Surah 26 Al-Furqan (The Criterion), verses 2-3)


There is even a surah dedicated to this very issue; it is short and clear:

"Say (O Muhammad (pbuh)): "He is Allah, (the) One.
"Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks).
"He begets not, nor was He begotten;
"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." "

(Surah 112; Al-Ikhlaas or At-Tauhid (The Purity), verses1-4)



I don't think Jesus swearing and smoking within the show discredits or taints his inherent core status of his purpose in life. The underlying message of him showing his friends and to his community The Way of doing good as much as possible was present in the programme, and that surely is a more important thing to remember and take from it than his relinquishing to his vices, his skin colour, or that he had a weave rather than a natural afro-like do.

So, what did you think of Black Jesus? Please leave a comment below.

The World; Through A Lens - Kids Killed Amongst Latest Incident Of The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict




24 July 2014
Beit Hanoun, Gaza City,Palestinian Territories / Israel


Chaos persists in the Middle East as Israeli and Palestinian forces take part in explosive military exchanges. Often blaming each other for their actions, these opponents inflict attacks on the other, often causing extensive damage to towns and neighbourhoods. Unfortunately its not just mere bricks and mortar that bare the brunt of the countless acts of aggression - fatalities are inevitable as a result. Civilians on both sides have suffered with their lives being sacrificed as the ultimate fight over ownership of the Holy Land rages on and on. Ceasefires are seemingly negotiated upon, and then almost immediately broken before the Bic ink has even dried up on the parchment.

In this latest round of discord, notable recent incidents including that of the murder of a Palestinian teenager and then of three young Israelis left the Jewish state's military arm feeling that it had "no alternative"but to commence a firm open-ended sequence of airstrikes over the unimaginably densely populated area of Gaza on July 8. Within this region, the Palestinian offence is spearheaded by the democratically elected Islamist party Hamas, whom fight with what means they have; usually firing rockets into Israel whilst being rained on from Israeli shells. Over these last two and a half weeks or so, over 750 Palestinians and roughly 33 Israelis have been killed due to this relenting wave of hostilities.

Today's episode involves the shelling of a UN-run school-turned makeshift shelter for Palestinian refugees. So far, 15 people are reported to have been killed, and over 200 injured. Children are believed to be amongst the dead. The UN have stated that it gave the co-ordinates of the school to the IDF [Israeli Defence Force] in order to avoid it from being bombed on. As things stand, neither the IDF or Hamas are officially claiming responsibility for carrying out the brutal assault.

Ramadan 2014



A great time is nearly upon us yet again; a time of introspection where one looks into their own self and reflects on current states of condition whether it be mental, physical or otherwise. A time to simultaneously think of others - those you know of and those you don't, those near and those far, in order to send out positivity for them all to enjoy. A time to acknowledge and be thankful for The One and Sole Source from which everything comes from. Although He gave us free will, without His permission will anything happen.

This time is Ramadan.

Where we can think of ourselves, others, the One Source all year round (and it is recommended we all do so as much as possible), it was within this time in which for the last time His World was set upon Muhammad (pbuh), the last prophet, being revealed to him little by little over 23 years during the 7th Century. His Word, The Qur'an is a message of knowledge, guidance, relief and mercy for us to follow as best we can, and so its during Ramadan where we show our thanks to Him for delivering this amazing gift to us.

In 2014, permitting the sighting of the moon, Ramadan commences on the 27th-29th of June (dependent upon your location on the planet). More info can be found over here.

AYTD wishes everyone a very happy Ramadan, and gives all thanks and praises to Allah - The One True Source of everything. Thank you.

Michelle Obama's "#BringBackOurGirls" Campaign Backfires


One of the biggest current affairs stories in recent weeks to grace news headlines across the world is that of the abduction of over 200 girls in Nigeria by the Islamic militant organisation Boko Haram. This currently ongoing situation has been condemned by political leaders from all corners of the globe (AYTD does also btw) - with a number of them offering to help the Nigerian government's efforts in finding the girls and bringing them back to freedom and safety.


Bringing them back... this segways superbly into the catchphrase that instantly became a viral mantra to further bring the story to the forefront and really put pressure on Boko Haram to relent. US First Lady Michelle Obama made her voice heard on this subject via venturing down the social media route. She tweeted:  "Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families. It's time to #BringBackOurGirls. - mo", along with an accompanying photo of herself in the White House brandishing the hashtag on a piece of paper. Numerous famous figures both in and out of the political realm rushed to show their support; from David Cameron to Puff Daddy.

Despite gaining the level of momentum an advertising agency has wet dreams of, it took little more time than an acne-riddled basement-dwelling nerd losing his virginity for the #BringBackOurGirls campaign to take a turn for the worse. The same platform of social media was used when the Michelle Obama's original image was "shopped" - where her message was erased and replaced with various statements, many highlighting the US' own terrible record of foreign policy such as these below:
 

Never one to miss a chance at jumping on a bandwagon let alone wasting time talking about psuedo-political trends whilst more important things are going on. AYTD decided to participate in this mild diversion by coming up with some hashtags of our own which we'd like to see being brought back.

NWO Media Network - Katy Perry "Dark Horse" Music Video


Wow.......... WHAT THE CUFF IS THIS ISH!!

Really Katy? Dayum, if there was ever any doubt as to whether you were a pawn of the NWO's Media Network (moosick division), then that thought has been relentlessly ejaculated on bukkake-stylee with the highest concentrate of Roundup known to man. Below is the video clip to her latest single, Dark Horse, directed by Matthew Cullen:



If you didn't watch the video, Perry plays the character of Katy Patra, Queen of the ancient Egyptian City of Memphis. The place is allegedly real, but Patra is loosely based on Egyptian Queen Cleopatra. The lyrics refer to Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love; this is due to Patra's desire for her materialistically-rich eligible suitors to win her over with opulent gifts, which they eagerly try to do. All but the last offering pleases the Queen, who accepts the bounty presented to her - yet she betrays him and turns him into a little mutt - tongue hanging out panting for more, morrre, MORRRE! *rolls eyes*

Here's some of the song's lyrics -

I knew you were
You were gonna come to me
And here you are
But you better choose carefully


'Cause I...
I'm capable of anything
Of anything
And everything
Make me your Aphrodite
Make me your one and only
But don't make me your enemy
Your enemy
Your enemy

So you wanna play with magic
Boy you should know what you're fallin' for
Baby do you dare to do this
'Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse

Oooooh... what a Quaver-shaped tongue-tease of a female Ms. Perry is...

The video has so much occult symbolism, yet depicted in such a blatant covert manner, graphics such as:

- ALL SEEING EYE = by far the most obvious and easiest symbol to spot in the vid. The wide-opened eye represents those that want to know every single thing about who you are and what you are doing at all times. They say they do this (through all sorts of means, like cameras, microchips, metadata etc.) for your own safety... When the real reason is so that any attack upon them can be readily shot down faster than an innocent unarmed man at a London Underground tube station. AYTD's Quran Quote #75 gives a great example of the all-seeing eye in context.

- PYRAMID = Another well known sign. The pyramid (either with three or four sides) is the three-dimensional version of the triangle. This shape is very structurally strong, and this reflects many elite secret societies'  relationships and bonds to each other and their master. Little do they know that their master will turn ther back on them, just like Queen Patra does at the end of the video... Idiots.

- WINGS = The wings are a graphic metaphor that refers to one gaining a deity-like status. A modern day example can be associated to a British RAF (Royal Air Force) cadet "getting their wings" upon moving up the ranks of the institution. In the Video, Perry attains her wings after reaching the apex of the golden pyramid. You may call her highness Bawse Perry from here on.

- SNAKES =  Not much to say here really. Snakes are abound in the vid; from Patra's various hand movements, to them being on either side of the boat Queen patra is riding in, on the blue guards' headgear, they surround her in the second verse, the list goeth on. The snake is symbolic of Satan himself and his ability to shape shift, as he done so when he appeared as a snake to Eve in the Garden Of Eden and tempted her and Adam to eat the forbidden fruit.

- BLUE GUARDS = These henchmen of the Queen protect her from all harm (like she needs it...), yet they are peculiarly hued in Jay-Z blue... Por qué senor? Well, AYTD thinks that they represent the Jinn - a species for which Satan is the most upper ranking Field Marshal. Made out of electricity, Jinn have consciences like humans, but are naturally capable of doing much more than us earthlings. The most potent jinn adorn the most vibrants of blue in colour to visually declare their prowess.

- ELECTRICITY STRIKES = Queen Patra has the ability to inflict bolts of lightning on her entertainment. She looks like a human, yet when she can shoot wattage outta her hands like she's Raiden from Mortal Kombat one may indeed think again about if she's what she appears to be. Could this mean that Patra is a Jinn herself, much like the blue guarded "men" that surround her? After all, The Qur'an says that Jinn are inherently made of fire, whereas humans derive from clay.

- MICKEY MOUSE EARS = These send a message that Katy is undergoing the mind control programming techniques. One of the most controversial of these is Project Monarch, where the subject (often a child) is treated to severe mental trauma sessions which result in different personalities emerging, known as altars. Depending on which altar the inhabitant has been switched on to, it allows for the relevant truly horrific activities (usually of a sexual nature) to be inflicted upon them without even rarely having the ability to recall the events.

- SPHINX CATS HEADS = Whilst the anthropomorphism of real and / or mythical people from ancient eras features in abundance through many visual and scriptural depictions, it was no utter random choice for the female dancers to have cat heads plonked on their noggins; in this case its Sphinx heads to make historical sense. This gives a "head-nod" as it were to a specific type of mind control - Beta Programming aka Sex Kitten Programming. When the subject is tuned in with this aspect of control, they become highly sexually charged and can behave in a very primal fashion, both allowing such lewdness to happen upon them, and also provoke others to mimic and indulge in their vulgar practices. Nothing to see here folks, but some pussies doing the splits by stripper poles; move along please, move along.

There's so much more demonic, disturbing and just downright strange stuff going on in the video it boggles both the trained and subliminal mind. One thing that is extremely telling is that the guy that presents Patra with that tonk-off jewel has a necklace around his neck that says "Allah" (if you watch the clip in HD you can clearly see it). At the 1:15 mark is where it can be seen next to the Maybach Music Group chain crumbling into dust like the guy himself! Whilst Arabic wasn't widely known in Egypt until the advent of Arab-Muslim conquest of Egypt in the 7th century AD, its yet to be verified as to whether the MMG's Rick Ross' repeated self-proclamations as "Bawse" has ancestral links to the Ancient Egypt Monarchy. Meanwhile, various sources cite the song title Dark Horse itself to be referenced within The Bible as to one of the four horses of the Apocalypse that brings much death, pain and sorrow across the world in various forms whether is be due to poverty, disease and war to name just a few.

This abomination of a song features a rap verse from the recently resurrected career of Triple 6 Mafia member Juicy J - that's right, we defaecate on you not... the 666 mafia. Let's just stick to the official Warren Commission story version, that being Juicy J comes from Queen Patra's namesake city, Memphis, Tennessee, you see?...

Mmmmmmmmmmyyeeeaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.

"Coincidences" like these just beggar belief, do songs and music videos like these truly have such sinister motives behind them, or do they aim to troll those that attribute such claims to this content? Well, if the viewer isn't convinced one way or another, they sure will be confused - which will suffice for the master Jinn.

So, you wanna play with magic? Methinks a gulpful of steaming hot doo-doo from a 50p donkey ride down at Clacton-On-Sea beach would be infinitely more palettable than falling for a tantalising dosage of Ms. Perry-Perry's sauce slathering your electrically-stunned chicken.
