THIS DAY March 21

Posted by Shiva on March 20, 2009

March 21, 2009: London, Britain. Labour Party MP Shahid Malik has predicted the total Islamification of Britain and a Muslim prime minister, “Allah willing”, within the next thirty years.


The remarks were made at the October 2008 “Global Peace and Unity” conference held at the Excel London centre, but were deliberately withheld from the video coverage released of that event.
The video speech in which Mr Malik made his remarks has now been released on the internet — nearly five months after the event.
The suppression of the video was clearly designed to try and limit the damage to the ruling Tory and Labour elite, whose immigration policies have led to the situation where a Muslim cabinet minister can confidently predict the total Islamification of this nation.
In his speech, Mr Malik said that he was “proud of the achievements of the Muslims of this country since 1997.”
Referring to Muslim members of the British parliament, himself included, Mr Malik went on to say that: “In 1997 we got our first Muslim MP. In 2001 we had two Muslim MPs. In 2005 we had four Muslim MPs. In ša Allah, in 2009 (or) 2010 we’ll have eight or ten Muslim MPs. In 2014 we’ll have 16 Muslim MPs. At this rate the whole parliament will be Muslim.”
Mr Malik then realised that he had let the cat out of the bag by being too honest, and in an embarrassed tone, he backtracked slightly, saying that was not his intention “in case any members of the press are present.”
The crowd showed no signs of reacting to his remark, and, filled with confidence, he then resumed an explanation of how Britain is to be totally Islamified.
“I am confident, as Britain’s first Muslim minister, that, in ša Allah, in the next thirty years or so, we’ll see a prime minister who happens to share my faith,” Mr Malik said, in reference to the growing Third World population and immigration figures.

The people of Britain cannot say that they have not been warned.

March 21, 2009: Nottingham, Britain. The postmaster who banned customers who can’t speak English from his branch today faced calls for him to be sacked from angry local Muslims.

Sri Lankan-born Deva Kumarasiri introduced the ban this week because he believes all immigrants in Britain should learn the language and take pride in the new homeland.

Mr Kumarasiri, who runs Sneinton Boulevard Post Office in inner-city Nottingham, moved here 18 years ago and says everyone should embrace British culture.

But the chairman of the local Mosque confirmed that a petition was circulating among Muslim residents calling for Mr Kumarasiri to go.

Aurangzeb Kahn said: ‘There has been concern that people can be denied Post Office services because they can’t speak English.

‘There is a strong feeling among some local people that this is wrong.

‘A single employee should not have the right to make that decision, especially if he is an employee of what is a public facility provided by the Government.’

Mr Kahn confirmed that local Muslims have started a petition calling for Mr Kumarasiri’s dismissal but stressed the move had no connection with his Mosque,

He added that the Mosque wanted to investigate the issue moire fully before making any further comment.

The controversial ban was a major talking point among many Muslims attending prayers today in an area of Nottingham with a large Urdu-speaking Pakistani community.

One man, who refused to be named, said: ‘There is a lot of anger about this.

‘We understand his point but it can take years to learn English and there are some elderly people who are too old to learn.

‘A lot of people think he is wrong and want him gone.’

Mr Kumarasiri, who was inundated with cards and messages of support from across the UK said: ‘I don’t expect everyone to agree with me.

‘It was inevitable that those who don’t want to be fully integrated into this country would do something like this.

‘For me it proves that there are elements out there who have no intention of ever [becoming] integrated.

‘But I’ve had dozens of letters, cards and phone calls all supporting my stand.

‘I’m really pleased with some of the letters which are from immigrants who came here without a word of English but taught themselves the language because they are determined to be British.’

A steady stream of well-wishers have also travelled to the 40-year-old father-of-two’s post office to voice their support.

Police have also been keeping a discreet eye on the premises to ensure he did not attract the wrong sort of attention from people who may resent his new found celebrity status.

Mr Kumarasiri added that he understood that his employers, Newrose Personnel Ltd, had discussed his ban but he had heard nothing from them about his future.

Yesterday a spokesman for the employment agency refused to comment and referred all calls to the Post Office.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: ‘Post Office branches are a vital part of all communities and are open to all customers.

‘We are taking steps to ensure that this happens at Sneinton Boulevard Post Office.’

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats distanced the party from Mr Kumarasiri, who claims to be a Lib Dem member on his local Gedling Borough Council.

A spokesman for the party said: ‘Mr Kumarasiri has not been a party member since October 2007 when his membership lapsed.’ Read the rest of this entry »

Obama tries to sell out Israel but the jihadis there are not buying it

Posted by avideditor on March 20, 2009

Obama is turning out stupider than I expected or maybe he is just evil. What do you think? But I expected much worse. This seems like a bigger mistake to me than trying to get into the white-house through the window.

THIS DAY March 20

Posted by Shiva on March 20, 2009

Norooz greetings to all Mankind and particularly to those who celebrate this great Day. Norooz is the celebration of life and fertility. Its origin fades into history. This is the oldest festivity alive and it will live as long as this planet lives. Ten thousand years from now, the world will be a different place. All races will merge and become indistinguishable.
Nationality would make no sense. Long after religions are thrown in the dustbin of history along with their festivities, the Mother Earth will keep celebrating Norooz in the vernal equinox as she has been doing for billions of years. Trees will blossom, deserts will bloom and life will burst with its glory and beauty.

Norooz and perhaps its twin festivity Mehregan, celebrated in the other equinox will endure as long as the Earth endures. The festivity of the 21st of December, when in most of the Earth light overcomes darkness, symbolizing the victory of good over evil, will also be celebrated. These festivities do not belong to any nation or religion. They are the festivities of the Mother Earth. We humans only rejoice watching in awe the miracle of her rebirth year after year in Norooz.

Happy Norooz!

March 20, 2009: The first day on the Iranian calendar falls on the March equinox, the first day of spring. At the time of the equinox, the sun is observed to be directly over the equator, and the north and south poles of the Earth lie along the solar terminator; sunlight is evenly divided between the north and south hemispheres.

Bas-relief in Persepolis – a symbol Zoroastrian Nowruz – in day of a spring equinox power of eternally fighting bull (personifying the Earth), and a lion (personifying the Sun), are equal

Due to its antiquity, there exist various foundation myths for Nowruz in Iranian mythology. In the Zoroastrian tradition, the seven most important Zoroastrian festivals are the six Gahambars and Nowruz which occurs at the spring equinox.
It seems a reasonable surmise that Nowruz, the holiest of them all, with deep doctrinal significance, was founded by Zoroaster himself. Between sunset of the day of the 6th Gahanbar and sunrise of Nowruz was celebrated Hamaspathmaedaya (later known, in its extended form, as Frawardinegan). This and the Gahanbar are the only festivals named in the surviving text of the Avesta.
The Shahnameh, dates Nowruz as far back to the reign of Jamshid, who in Zoroastrian texts saved mankind from a killer winter that was destined to kill every living creature The mythical Persian King Jamshid (Yima or Yama of the Indo-Iranian lore) perhaps symbolizes the transition of the Indo-Iranians from animal hunting to animal husbandry and a more settled life in human history.
In the Shahnameh and Iranian mythology, he is credited with the foundation of Nowruz. In the Shahnama, Jamshid constructed a throne studded with gems. He had demons raise him above the earth into the heavens; there he sat on his throne like the sun shining in the sky. The world’s creatures gathered in wonder about him and scattered jewels aound him, and called this day the New Day or No/Now-Ruz. This was the first day of the month of Farvardin (the first month of the Persian calendar).
The Persian scholar Abu Rayhan Biruni of the 10th century A.D., in his Persian work “Kitab al-Tafhim li Awa’il Sina’at al-Tanjim” provides a description of the calendar of various nations. Besides the Persian calendar, various festivals of Arabs, Jews, Sabians, Greeks and other nations are mentioned in this book. In the section on the Persian calendar(تقویم پارسیان), he mentions Nowruz, Sadeh, Tiregan, Mehregan, the six Gahanbar, Parvardegaan, Bahmanja, Isfandarmazh and several other festivals. According to him: It is the belief of the Persians that Nowruz marks the first day when the universe started its motion.
