It’s almost as if the UK has a death wish! In spite of the recent Islamic attacks ‘The annual Al Quds, anti-Israel demonstration took place Sunday afternoon in London, where Hezbollah terror organization flags were permitted to fly.
Despite a petition signed by more than 20,000 individuals calling for a ban on the march, London Mayor Sadiq Khan refused to stop an anti-Israel event that included Hezbollah flags.
The petition stated, “After the terrible recent terrorist events in Manchester and London, this display of extremism has no place on the streets of the UK.”
In a written response to the pet
ition, Khan stated, “As is the case for any group, protesters have the right to march as long as they do so within the law. The mayor does not have the power to ban a march in London.”
On their website, the IHRC (Islamic Human Rights Commission), responsible for organizing the march, stated that participants “are welcome to bring flags that show solidarity with the Palestinian cause,” but flags of proscribed or illegal organizations are not allowed. The group added, “You
can bring a Hezbollah flag to show support for the political wing of Hezbollah. This is because the political wing of Hezbollah is not a proscribed organization.”
Both the political wing and the military wing of the terrorist Hezbollah organization use the same flag.
Accompanying the Hezbollah flags were placards supporting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and accusing the Jewish state of war crimes, genocide, and ethnic cleansing. Marchers delighted in chants such as “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which signals the true intent of the organizers: the total destruction of the Jewish state. In previous years, chants also included, “we are all Hezbollah” and “we are all Hamas,” where self-proclaimed peace activists had no problem proclaiming their support for terrorist organizations openly committed not just to the destruction of Israel, but also to the killing of Jews.
Jewish and pro-Israel groups organized a counter-demonstration, and a significant police presence ensured the sides were kept apart. The counter demonstration was addressed by Kay Wilson, victim of a horrendous terror attack in 2010.
Wilson told the crowd, “It is a racist slur to say that all Muslims are terrorists. However, it is deluded, dangerous and disingenuous to claim that terrorism has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.”
Al Quds Day was established in Iran, in the wake of the 1979 Islamic revolution, in support of the Palestinians and condemning Israel. The IHRC’s are closely connected to the Iranian regime and hold an annual march in London on the weekend after Al Quds Day, which takes place in Iran on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.
In 2012 the current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attended the march and spoke in support of the Palestinians and condemned Israel. In the past, Corbyn has referred to both Hamas and Hezbollah, as his friends. Since becoming leader of the Labour Party, Corbyn has been accused of ignoring a rise in anti-Semitism in the party.’ https://worldisraelnews.com/al-quds-march-goes-ahead-london-hezbollah-flags/
In spite of the hate these Muslims and some non-Muslims have for the Jew and the nation of Israel, God’s Word says ‘As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever’ Psalm 125:2.
Well, the issue of two sodomites getting together and calling it marriage is confronting all of us in the face again. Those of the Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyle are almost evangelistic in pushing for the misnomer they call same-sex “marriage”.
In rural New South Wales, Australia “A Dubbo businesswoman and marriage equality advocate has accused the federal government of avoiding action on same-sex marriage, following reports a plebiscite on the issue may be delayed until 2017.”
This annoyed “Local Coffee Co owner Karen Payne, who opposes a plebiscite and subsequent costs, has criticised the delay.
‘The consensus is that marriage equality would pass through the upper and lower house if it went to a vote today,’ Ms Payne said.”
Ms. Payne “…suggested it could take a strike to prompt the politicians into action.”
She told the newspaper, “I sometimes wonder what would happen if all LGBTI people decided to go on strike until the marriage equality issue was resolved,”. http://www.dailyliberal.com.au/story/4113247/mps-do-your-job-payne/?cs=112 I hate to shock Ms. Payne but I think the world would go on in spite of the strike.
Now, of course I don’t for one minute think quoting the Bible to Ms. Payne or others in agreement with her on this sodomite issue will change anything but here goes. Genesis 2:20-24 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
The Lord Jesus said in Mathew 19:4-6 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Then Romans 1:22-27 tells us that “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Pretty clear, I think!
Then there is 1Corinthians 6:9, 10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
I relinquished my government approved religious celebrant’s license several years ago because I knew there would come a time when the government of the day would sanction two sodomites getting together and calling it “marriage”. However, God settled the issue in the beginning of time and no matter what a government or a nation decides I “ought to obey God rather than men.”
