U.K. Gov’t Teams up with Mosques to Produce Healthy Eating Guide*

The U.K. Gov’t Teams up with Mosques to Produce Healthy Eating Guide*

The government is teaming up with mosques in the U.K. to promote a healthy lifestyle throughout communities.

Islam considers health to be one of the greatest blessings provided by God. Prophet Muhammad said,

“There are two blessings which many people do not appreciate: health and leisure”.

Preservation of health is essential in making the most of our lives and this requires us to make healthy choices and decisions.

Historically places of worship were at the heart of the community; they were a centre for prayer, a meeting place, an educational institute, a place of social activities and a place of rest. Even today, mosques play an important role as they bring people together and can provide a great way to share important health information with the community that can help people live healthier and prevent disease.

Many prominent health problems that are seen today are easy to prevent by a simple change in behaviour. These changes can include eating in moderation, stopping smoking, and increasing physical activity. As such, it is important for mosques and Islamic centres to inculcate ways and promote methods of minding health and looking out for any problems.

It is with a realisation of this obligation that Public Health England have teamed up with Birmingham City Council and KIKIT Pathways to Recovery to produce ‘A Guide to Healthy Living: Mosques’

This document consists of consistently arising health problems that need to be tackled and also cites examples of ways in which mosques and Islamic institutions are aiming to eradicate these health problems.

During the month of Ramadhan for example, The KSIMC of Birmingham encouraged congregants to bring in salads from home to be shared communally when opening the fast. This initiative proved so popular that it led to an informal competition for the best salad of the month. This encouraged everyone to participate through swapping recipes and promoted an ethos of sharing and engaging the community about what they are eating and making healthier food choices.

Along with obesity, the guide tackles issues such as later life, cancer, and mental well-being. The full guide is available here.

Indian State Will Pay Farmers to go 100% Organic and GMO-Free*

Indian State Will Pay Farmers to go 100% Organic and GMO-Free*

Just over two years ago, in September 2014, the Indian Government launched their revolutionary  Rastriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (National Agriculture Development Program) as a way to encourage organic farming, and decrease dependence on chemical agents.

In January 2015, the state of Sikkim was declared as the country’s first 100 percent organic state.

Sikkim produces 800,000 tons of organic produce that’s free of harmful pesticides, chemical fertilizers and toxic GMOs — accounting for roughly 65% of India’s total organic produce yields.

The western Indian state of Rajasthan launched plans for dedicating thousands of hectares of land for the farming of organic pulses just a few months later.

Their effort seeks to combat the rampant protein malnutrition, and the unsustainable practice of chemical fertilizer-based farming.

Another western Indian state now also seeks to join in. Goa has also recently announced that they will be looking to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and is also seeking to go 100 percent organic.

The State Department of Agriculture has launched a state sector plan titled, “Assistance for use of organic inputs by the farmer.”

Ulhas Pai Kakode, Director of Agriculture, commented:

“This is the first step we have taken in the direction of organic farming in the state.

“Hopefully, more and more farmers should adopt the practice of organic farming after availing this scheme.”

Under this new plan, farmers can receive significant assistance from the government when it comes to obtaining organic agricultural inputs, such as organic fertilizers and bio-pesticides.

Up to 50% of the tab will picked up by the state government, but there will be some limitations.

AnonHQ explains that these benefits will be limited to 10,000 Indian Rupees (INR) per hectare with a maximum of up to two hectares, or INR 20,000 per beneficiary for all categories of farmers on the use of organic inputs.

Farmers with plots as small as 0.1 hectare will be considered eligible for the program — which will also help to keep the tradition of small-scale ingidenous farming alive and well.

Organic farming is nothing new; it’s a tradition that has sadly been overtaken by overzealous corporations.

In India, organic farming has been practiced since ancient times and once ensured quality food for consumers.

The recent resurgence of organic farming in India, however, is largely due to the increasing demand for organic products in Western nations.

The organic food and fibre market is growing at an incredibly rapid pace, with some estimates suggesting that the market is expanding by up to 25 to 30 percent.

A study by ASSOCHAM, which stands for The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India, suggests that the organic food market in India will reach $1.36 billion by the year 2020.

The study also suggested that organic farming efforts short focus largely on pulses and grains.

The exponential growth of the organic market has even led food manufacturers in the United States to pay their farmers to make the switch to organic practices.

In the U.S. alone, sales in organic marketplace expanded by about 11%— reaching a whopping $43.3 billion last year — equalling about four times the growth in sales of food products, overall.

Organic farming in India is also expected to continue to grow, especially as the government continues to financially support organic farming endeavors.

Increased awareness and availability of organic foods has also greatly contributed to the success of organic food.

Additionally, the rise in health consciousness and healthier lifestyle changes have also played a significant role in the growth and demand of organic foods.

Pope Francis Calls for ‘One World Government’ To ‘Save Humanity’*

Pope Francis Calls for ‘One World Government’ To ‘Save Humanity’*

Given the current state of affairs, who could be granted with this burden that we could possibly trust

By Baxter Dmitry

Pope Francis called for “a one world government” and “political authority” this week, arguing that the creation of the one world government is needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”

Speaking with Ecuador’s “El Universo” newspaper, the Pope said that the United Nations doesnt have enough power and must be granted full governmental control “for the good of humanity.”

But what is raising eyebrows is the Pope’s call for a new global political authority. Here is more from the Guardian:

Pope Francis will this week call for changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the “unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem” before the end of this century, according to a leaked draft of a papal encyclical. In a document released by an Italian magazine on Monday, the pontiff will warn that failure to act would have “grave consequences for all of us”.

Francis also called for a new global political authority tasked with “tackling … the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions”. His appeal echoed that of his predecessor, pope Benedict XVI, who in a 2009 encyclical proposed a kind of super-U.N. to deal with the world’s economic problems and injustices.

The word “globalization” means exactly what it says. It is the process of transitioning the world into a global government. Religious leaders are playing their part in this great deception.

David Rockefeller famously said that a “global crisis” would have to occur before the people of the world would be willing to accept a New World Order. When the world economy suffered a dramatic crash in 2008, world leaders again proclaimed the need for a New World Order with global financial control.

As demonstrated by Pope Francis, climate change and the global warming hoax is now the global elite’s preferred method of scaremongering, as they attempt to shepherd humanity closer to unified totalitarian rule.

Disturbingly, world religious leaders are also beginning to come together as one to preach from the same hymn sheet, instructing their sheep to accept the components of the New World Order’s one world government.

In case you missed it, world leaders from a diverse collection of religious communities called for world unity in a video message released last week.

The call for a world government, led by Pope Francis, Ayatollah Al-Milani, the Dalai Lama and Rabbi Abraham Skorka, is seen as a major step on the road to the New World Order that was prophesied over 2,000 years ago.

The world religious leaders came together on June 14 to make a joint statement through a video calling on people to embrace ideas of friendship and unity, and to overcome negativity and division in society.

In reality, the call for global government by Pope Francis and other wealthy elitists has nothing to do with lifting up impoverished nations or “saving humanity.” Such a government would instead guarantee global surveillance, global wealth inequality and a world run by the exact corrupt interests currently consolidating wealth and power worldwide.

Ramadhan at an Israeli Military Checkpoint*

Every year during Ramadhan, tens of thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank take advantage of a temporary relaxation of Israeli movement restrictions in order to attend Friday prayers at al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, which they are normally prevented from entering.

Israel uses the Qalandiya military checkpoint to control Palestinian movement between the West Bank cities of Ramallah and Jerusalem.

Men over the age of 40, children under 12 and women of all ages are allowed to cross Qalandiya checkpoint and enter Jerusalem without military permits on Fridays during the month of Ramadan only.

2017 World Peace and Prayer Day statement by the Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Bundle

 

By Chief Arvol Looking Horse

At the age of 12 years old I was given the responsibility of taking care of the Sacred Chanupa. My journey as a holy person has led to many visions. World Peace and Prayer Day is a vision of healing for all life that was initiated 22 years ago today.

Today, World Peace and Prayer Day is at Mauna a Wakea (Mountain of Sky Father), also known as Mauna Kea, in Hawaii. Many First Nations Indigenous Peoples are gathering here to pray and make spiritual offerings for all life on Mother Earth. Also, people from all directions and all Nations across Turtle Island will be praying in unification with us today.

The messages from many animal nations have been shown for a long time now. If we do not create the consciousness for the need to unite all humanity at Mother Earth’s Sacred Sites; there will be chaos, disasters, and severe tragedies for all life. We are related to all things that have a spirit, and everything on Mother Earth has a spirit. We call this relationship we have with all life the ‘Mitakuye Oyasin.

Recently, the Sacred Sites in the territories of the Oceti Sakowin (Nations of the Seven Council Fires) have been encroached upon by the Dakota Access Pipeline. Water protectors from all directions took a stand against this encroachment; and the World took notice and supported the Indigenous Peoples whose human rights have been violated.

The Red Hand Society, who has been trained by our ancestors to protect Sacred Sites and respect the sacredness of life, was forced to leave the unceded territory of the Oceti Sakowin just as our ancestors were; and many of the water protectors are facing criminal charges for protecting life at Standing Rock. However, we will continue to follow the Woope (natural laws), which are the sacred teachings of humanity.

The man-made laws state that a burial must have tombstone; but these laws do not recognize the protection of our ancestor’s final resting place marked by Grandfather stone. The man-made laws say that you need to be an anthropologist to understand what defines a sacred site, but it is the elders with the Indigenous knowledge that should be given this respect. The man-made law says that our sacred objects, that we repatriate from shoe boxes stored in museum attics, are required to be stored in buildings; when it is our inherent right to have these objects in our hands for ceremonies. We have been forced to leave our homelands and denied access by man-mad laws, but the sacred sites are still there. Therefore, we will continue to follow the natural law and do everything we can to protect these sacred sites where our ancestors rest and where we gather food and medicine necessary for the health and welfare of loved ones as well as necessary for all life on Mother Earth.

We began our ceremony on June 18th at Halema’uma’u, near the home and volcanic crater of Pele. The elders are passing the torch to the youth and have discussed the empowerment of women, following your spiritual path, cultural teachings, protection of sacred sites, healing from historical trauma as well as many other spiritual teachings. It is time for all Peoples to unify, and we ask everyone across the World to join us for a unified prayer today and all Nations to declare this day as an international holiday.

2,000yr. old Bible Confirms Jesus was Not Crucified*

2,000yr. old Bible Confirms Jesus was Not Crucified*

By Sean Adl-Tabatabai

The Vatican have confirmed that a newly discovered 2,000 year old Bible found in Turkey says that Jesus Christ was not crucified as is commonly believed. 

The Bible, which is now being kept in the Ethnography Museum of Ankara, contains the Gospel of Barnabas – one of the forgotten disciples of Christ. The Gospel says the Jesus was not crucified, nor was he the literal son of God – but was actually a Prophet.

Natives-today.com reports: The book also calls Apostle Paul “The Impostor”.  The book also claims that Jesus ascended to heaven alive, and that Judas Iscariot was crucified in his place.

A report by The National Turk says that the Bible was seized from a gang of smugglers in a Mediterranean-area operation. The report states the gang was charged with smuggling antiquities, illegal excavations, and the possession of explosives.  The books itself is valued as high as 40 Million Turkish Liras (approx. 28 mil. Dollars).  Man, where is the Thieves Guild, when you need them?

Authenticity

According to reports, experts and religious authorities in Tehram insist that the book is original.  The book itself is written with gold lettering, onto loosely-tied leather in Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ.  The text maintains a vision similar to Islam, contradicting the New Testament’s teachings of Christianity.   Jesus also foresees the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, who would found Islam 700 years later.

It is believed that, during the Council of Nicea, the Catholic Church hand-picked the gospels that form the Bible as we know it today; omitting the Gospel of Barnabas (among many others) in favor of the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Many biblical texts have begun to surface over time, including those of the Dead Sea and Gnostic Gospels; but this book especially, seems to worry the Vatican.

The Catholic Church wants in

What does this mean to Christian-derived religions and their followers?  Quite a tight spot.  The Vatican has asked Turkish authorities to let them examine the contents of the book within the Church.  Now that the book has been found, will they come to accept its evidence?  Will they deny it altogether?  Call it a “Muslim lie”, as did the “Truth” Magazine, in 2000?  To many, this book is a beacon of hope, that believers soon realize that the object of their adoration is arbitrary; and that all text, especially religious text, is subject to interpretation.

What does this mean to atheists/agnostics/secular thinkers?  Not much… Is the text real?  Fake?  Does it matter?  Not really… But hopefully, this news inspires the religious to ask questions, instead of pointing fingers or believing anything blindly.  Please, don’t go poking fun or tossing around the “I told you so!”s.  The biggest danger of faith is when people believe what they want to believe, defending against any and all evidence; especially when that evidence revolutionizes their foundation from the ground up.  And the biggest culprit to that danger is the ego trap: rejecting/criticizing others, for being unlike you.

For centuries, the “defense” of blind faith has driven nations to war, violence, discrimination, slavery and to become the society of automatons that we are today; and for just as long, it has been justified with lies.  If you know better, act like it.

Ancient Aleppo Citadel Hosts Carnival for Schoolchildren*

Ancient Aleppo Citadel Hosts Carnival for Schoolchildren*

Residents of the Syrian city of Aleppo have organized a carnival in the city’s ancient Citadel, a medieval fortified structure in the centre of the Old City which only months earlier had been the site of intense fighting between the Syrian Army and jihadist militants.

The carnival, which before the war was celebrated annually to mark the end of school exams, has been restored after a five year hiatus, becoming a symbol of peace and life in the Aleppo’s historic Old City.

The carnival, featuring costumes, food, song, dance, and performances, took place at Aleppo’s Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is considered one of the oldest and largest castles in the world, its use going back to at least the 3rd century BC.

Russian media report on the carnival

Amid the fight for the city beginning in 2012, the Citadel was briefly occupied by militants. Liberated by the Syrian Army in 2013, the ancient structure was surrounded by jihadists for several years before the entire city’s liberation by government forces last year. The militants dug tunnels under the Citadel to try and capture it, and fighting for the castle caused significant damage.

This year, she said, “we are celebrating the beginning of the restoration of the ancient city; this celebration symbolizes the beginning of a peaceful life for the city’s residence – without bomb explosions and constant fear.”

The celebrations were temporarily interrupted by a power cut. Nevertheless, people were not in any hurry to go home.

Muhammad Akri, a local student, told journalists that Aleppo residents have become accustomed to power shortages over five years of occupation by the militants.

“For us, it doesn’t matter whether we have electricity or not. Everyone is just happy that the city has finally been freed from the sound of exploding shells,” he said.

Muhammad emphasized that Aleppo’s residents are determined to help repair and restore the historic Old City as soon as possible, but added that everyone is aware that this may take decades.

It is estimated that up to 80% of Aleppo’s Old City has suffered damage thanks to the war. It is estimated that restoration efforts may cost up to $35-40 billion U.S. Officials hope funds for restoration will be collected from generous donors from around the world. In early June, the National Museum in the Czech Republic signed an agreement with the Syrian Department of Museums and Antiquities to allocate about 1.5 million euros from the Czech side for restoration efforts.
