Is Europe blackmailing Africa for homosexual marriages?

By MOTSOKO PHEKO

ARTICLE SUMMARY: The pressure on Africa to go homosexual is coming from Europe. This is from the British government and its allies that have not accounted for their role in the Slave Trade of Black human beings (Africans).

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: Dr. Motsoko Pheko is a former member of the South African Parliament. He is author of several books on history, political science, law and theology.

The British Prime Minister David Cameron long threatened to withhold UK financial aid from African governments that do not reform legislation banning homosexuality.

Those receiving UK aid should adhere to proper rights.”

British PM intensifies hate propaganda against Muslims

For the second time, British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has tarnished the image of British Muslims abroad after previously using a speech on radicalisation and “Islamist extremism” in Munich in February 2011, according to the British Muslim News newspaper.

During a visit to China Wednesday, Cameron used the occasion to unveil yet further repressive measures against the British Muslim community, warning that people and groups were spreading a “poisonous narrative that can do so much damage to our country and poison and radicalise young minds.”

ONE ON ONE: Yahya Sseremba takes on Christians and atheists who link Islam to terrorism

Introduction: This is a slightly-edited version of a dialogue extracted from the Facebook group page Activists For Change that took place between 15 and 21, April 2013. It was sparked off by a story about enemy plots to undermine Islam whose link was posted on the page.

The slight editing was necessary partly to replace with full words the shorthand style of writing often used on social media.

Biography of Yahya Sseremba: He is the publisher of The Campus Journal news website.

The grace that Muhammad is to Muslims and non-Muslims alike

ARTICLE SUMMARY: All humanity has been influenced, knowingly or unknowingly, by the code of living that the Prophet outlined. This grace continues to be available in plenty for anyone who wishes to benefit by it.

ARTICLE BACKGROUND: Extracted from Vol. 12 of In the Shade of the Qur’an, this article is part of the author’s commentary on Chapter 22:107 of the Qur’an, which states, “We have sent you (O Muhammad) as a grace towards all the worlds.”

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: Sayyid Qutb is one of Islam’s greatest activists of the 20th Century. His Islamic advocacy cost him his life in 1966 at hands of the tyrannical Egyptian regime.

God has sent His last Messenger as a manifestation of His grace to all mankind. He takes them by the hand to show them divine guidance. It is only those who are ready to receive such guidance that benefit by it, but God’s grace is bestowed on believers and unbelievers alike.

The code of living given to us through the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is one that ensures the happiness of all mankind, and which will lead to the highest level of perfection humanity can attain. Muhammad’s message was given to mankind at a time when it attained its full mental maturity. Hence, it is a book open to all minds across all generations. It includes the unchangeable fundamentals of human life, and it is ready to meet changing needs that are known only to the One who created man, and who knows His creation well. He is most kind and aware of all things.

Syrian regime faces final nail in its coffin as France, Britain move to arm rebels

By YAHYA SSEREMBA

The embattled government of Bashar al-Assad of Syria may soon breathe its last if France and Britain carry out their threat of shipping weaponry to the ragtag rebels.

Paris and London have called on the European Union to lift its arms embargo on the Middle East nation to allow insurgents access to anti-tank and anti-aircraft hardware.

The duo have vowed not only to veto the embargo when it comes up for review in May or even earlier, but also to equip the rebels with the weapons they need to end the rule of Mr. Assad.
