Woolwich attack: Thousands of Muslims gather in London to condemn murder of soldier Lee Rigby
Belfast Telegraph ^ | 27th May 2013 | Gary Fennelly

Posted on 05/27/2013 7:02:53 AM PDT by the scotsman

'Around five thousand Muslims gathered at Morden mosque on Friday to condemn the murder of 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, south-east London.

The gathering of British Muslims from across the country took place at Western Europe's largest Mosque.

Worshippers offered prayers for Drummer Rigby and his family and expressed solidarity against extremism.

National president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK Rafiq Hayat said: "We stand united with the rest of the country in sharing the deep sorrow and pain following the horrific senseless attack on Wednesday.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Drummer Lee Rigby. We hope that the perpetrators of this crime, that is based on a twisted and warped ideology, are brought to justice.

"Islam is a religion of compassion and peace; a religion which considers the killing of an individual akin to killing the whole of humankind. Such acts of violence, therefore, have absolutely no place in Islam and can never be justified."'

I think this is bull..Maybe the crazies are getting scared especially since the PM made his statement.. We have a wusses here and a fellow Muslim so they keep attacking no apologizing from them.... I believe they should all be sent back and start over again..Same goes here we should send Obama back to his Muslim home land so he can run for some office there where he belongs..

Within the Mosques, were they chanting “Allah HuAkbar”?
Interviewed on British TV they are SUCH tolerant and well-balanced bastards aren't they? Then, back into the mosques...Allah HuAkbar!!! Look, if the Muslims slaughter each other in their own mosques, who are we to intervene?

I am not buying it and my guard is up because they have done this before as a cover when things get too hot for them. Is any word, any agreement, any promise and statement to be relied on from a Muslim when it is his honest duty to submit you to the sword? Why does the Saudi Arabian flag depict a sword and the Koran? Isn't this all obvious by now, come on Westerners, wake the heck up!!!!!!!!!!!

More unbelievable horse manure from the ministry of propaganda. Mohammedans always gather at their mosques on Fridays. Nothing special about that particular Friday. Don’t believe history. Don’t believe what they follow in the Koran. Don’t believe what their Imams are telling them. All the airline hijackings, hostage takings, cut throats, and car bombings where merely an aberration. It’s a religion of peace and compassion.

“Around five thousand Muslims gathered at Morden mosque on Friday...”

Target-rich environment?

And, of course, we must not overlook the stated goals of the islamic nutjobs and there mindless followers...the global caliphate.
Islam is a cancer on humanity. The muslims have been at war with civilization since the seventh century. We are now in the latest escalation of that war.
And, we are not winning. The PC apologists still control the dialogue.

Everything in and about Islam is a lie.

To believe a muzzie is to be as stupid as a liberal.

Which, of course, explains a lot.

Maybe Rafiq Hayat has been speaking out for a long time and I never knew.

The speech he made at this gathering is more than enough to put a target on his back.

This is the classic good cop, bad cop.

They realized that they may have crossed a line best uncrossed (until they were ready to go all out)

These protest are only meant to muddy the water so no organized resistant can be formed.

Islam is at war with western nations and the citizens of those nations whether or not the citizens or the elite leadership acknowledge it.

Cunning indeed.
"Worshippers offered prayers for Drummer Rigby and his family and expressed solidarity against extremism".

Offered prayers? Which prayers would those be? Since the prayers are recited in Arabic, few non-Muslims (and many Muslims) realize how anti-Semitic and anti-Christian the Muslim prayers actually are. However, most Muslims are aware of that du'a for non-Muslims (mushrik, infidel, ) is inappropriate :

"Quran: {The infidels are your sworn enemies Sura 4:101} ... they would have considered him a "mushrik"—that is, an idolater (polytheist) or simply, an infidel."

God says in the Quran: {It is not for the Prophet and those who have believed to ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even if they were relatives, after it has become clear to them that they are companions of Hellfire.}(at-Tawba, 9:113)

So what exactly would these 'thousands' of devout Muslims pray to benefit community cohesion and Drummer Rigby? My bet it a recording of that service would be quite revealing, and I look forward to such a disclosure and followup discussion.

Some info about Muslim prayers:

"Muslim prayers, on the other hand, follow a very elaborate, seventeen-part formula. The full cycle of a prayer is called a rak’a, and it includes bowing, kneeling, and reciting certain phrases and statements in a specified sequence.

These prayers are repeated five times a day, and each prayer includes multiple rak’as. While there is room for a spontaneous supplication in the dawn prayer, the rest of the prayers stick to a strict formula.

The guidelines for prayer cover 118 pages in Reliance of the Traveler, 166 pages in The Guidance (Al-Hidayah), and 273 pages in Fiqh us-Sunnah. . ."

So, what do Muslims actually pray for?

The only supplication in the rak’a is the recitation of Al-Fatihah (Surah 1 of the Quran).

This is what they pray for:

  • Guide us to the straight path,
  • the path of those whom You have favored,
  • Not of those who have incurred your wrath,
  • nor of those who have gone astray.

The phrase ‘those who have incurred your wrath” comes from Surah 2:61 which says,

Shame and misery were stamped upon [the Israelites] and they incurred the wrath of Allah; because they disbelieved Allah’s signs and slew His prophets unjustly; because they were rebels and transgressors.

The phrase “those who have gone astray” comes from Surah 4:44 which says,

Consider those to whom a portion of the Scriptures was given [i.e., Christians]. They purchase error for themselves and wish to see you go astray.

So the only supplication in the standard Muslim prayer is asking Allah to keep the Muslim from the path of the Jews and Christians. This prayer is recited seventeen times a day by devout Muslims.

The Friday prayer is even more offensive to Jews and Christians, as it requires not only two recitations of Al-Fatihah, but also

With regard to funerals:

"The service starts with the takbir (saying Allahu Akbar - aka allah is greatest), with the pronouncement of which hands are raised to the ears and placed in the same position as in prayer. After the takbir, istiftah (see p. 11) and the Fatiha are recited in a low voice by the lmam as well as those who follow. Then follows a second takbir without raising the hands to the ears, and the dhikr known as as-sala `ala Nabiyy recited in a low voice. The third takbir is then pronounced in a manner similar to the second takbir, and a prayer for the forgiveness of the deceased is addressed to God. Different forms of this prayer are reported as having been offered by the Holy Prophet, and it seems that prayer in any form is permissible."

Me thinks the Muzzies are sensing we’ve had just about enuf of their nonsense and are gearing up for a major Muzzie a$$ kicking of epic proportions. We’re talking raiding their temples, uncovering their hidden weapons caches and burning it to the ground. I think they sense this right now and it’s the only reason they’re convening; to give the impression they’re concerned. Yeah maybe 5%; the rest are cheering behind closed doors.

Perhaps the “Muzzies” are frightened for going too far. Little do they know they have no real reason to fear as no significant number of Westerners will do a d*mned thing.

what wasn;t in this thread was how in paces like glodwick, Mannigham, Burnley, Bradford, Oldham, Blackburn, Luton, Parts of London, Birmingham and many other places in England there were muslims who were also cheering the death and so this crap of they were protesting is someone who is trying to always make it out that muslims do not agree with this death and the death of non muslims.

Seems some around the world still have their love islam agenda
