To be creative means to be in love with life

Tao & Zen

“ONE of the most significant features we notice in the practice of archery, and in fact of all the arts as they are studied in Japan and probably also in other Far Eastern countries, is that they are not intended for utilitarian purposes only or for purely aesthetic enjoyments, but are meant to train the mind; indeed, to bring it into contact with the ultimate reality.

Archery is, therefore, not practiced solely for hitting the target; the swordsman does not wield the sword just for the sake of outdoing his opponent; the dancer does not dance just to perform certain rhythmical movements of the body. The mind has first to be attuned to the Unconscious.

If one really wishes to be master of an art, technical knowledge of it is not enough. One has to transcend technique so that the art becomes an “artless art” growing out of the Unconscious.

In the case of archery, the hitter and the hit are no longer two opposing objects, but are one reality. The archer ceases to be conscious of himself as the one who is engaged in hitting the bull’s-eye which confronts him.

This state of unconsciousness is realized only when, completely empty and rid of the self, he becomes one with the perfecting of his technical skill, though there is in it something of a quite different order which cannot be attained by any progressive study of the art.”

~D.T. Suzuki~

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.
— Osho

“In order to attract enlightenment from an enlightened being, the seeker must cultivate the following qualities:
• Simplicity: Simplicity is the first virtue on the path to enlightenment. Those who are overly educated, logical, learned, or intellectual will miss the point.

• Humility: One should be willing to receive the grace of divinity. When it is raining, one should hold the vessel straight to receive water. If it is upside down, will you get the water? No! So, be humble.

• Attitude of learning: Upanishad means sitting at the feet of the master ready to receive grace. Electrical energy flows from high-voltage to low-voltage. Similarly, spiritual energy flows from the master to the disciple. It is an important quality for the disciple to be able to sit at the feet of the master. An egoist cannot do that! Only the right disciple, who is willing to sit at the feet of the master, who is humble, simple, and receptive, will be capable of receiving that grace!

• Gratitude: If you have gratitude in your heart towards that enlightened consciousness, if you have a sense of appreciation for the profundity of the phenomenon, that very gratitude and appreciation will enable you to catch fire any moment.

Courage: The fifth and the most important quality of the right disciple is the courage to die, a willingness to let go. To use the metaphor of the lamp, the lamp should be ready to destroy its darkness. It should be ready to go near the fire to catch the fire. Most people are not willing to go near live fire, the living enlightened master, for it will burn you. Therefore, intellectual pundits will talk about the fire, will have study circles, will read books, but never approach the fire because they are not ready for it.” ~ Babaji

Take The Great Bow of the Sacred Scriptures,
Place on it the Arrow of Devotion;
Then Draw the Bowstring of Meditation
And Aim at the Target, the Lord of Love.

 

 

The Mantram is the Bow,
The Aspirant is the Arrow, and the Lord the Target.
Now draw the bowstring of meditation,
And Hitting the Target be One with him.

~ Mundaka Upanishad

Human life is beset with sorrow until we know how to tune in with the Divine Will, whose `right course’ is often baffling to the egoistic intelligence. God alone gives unerring counsel; who but He bears the burden of the cosmos?

Melanie Phillips

January 15, 2016

The All Must Have Prizes culture is failing an entire generation, one child at a time

British education is in a state of “meltdown”. Throughout the system, from nursery classes to degree courses, the relationship between teacher and pupil has been undermined, and the idea that children should be taught a body of rules at all, whether in maths or grammar, is now taboo in many schools. Systematic instruction has given way to approximations and guesswork, resulting in a rising tide of illiteracy. All Must Have Prizes presents the inside story of a social debacle. The collapse of education is not viewed in isolation; at the heart of the problem, claims Melanie Phillips, lies cultural and moral relativism, the doctrine that no values can be judged to be any better or worse than any others. She regards the primary effect of this, particularly in the last 20 years, to be the collapse of the authority of institutions. Sounding a warning, she offers a blueprint to restore authority and meaning to society.

It was Arab Muslims and Black Africans themselves who captured members of rival tribes and took them to the coastal slave-markets to sell to the Whites. It was the Arab Muslim world that introduced Europe to Slavery, the Arabs castrated the slaves so they could not reproduce now i know the Guardian is teaching this Anti British self hate, yet History is nothing like what the Media is portraying here. In the 16th – 18th century, Muslims enslaved 1.5 million White Europeans in the Barbary Slave Trade. African Muslims raided up the coastlines of Europe, particularly the British Isles but even as far as Iceland, kidnapping and enslaving White European Christians. The men were galley slaves, and the women were sex slaves. This was more brutal than working on a plantation or as a domestic servant. Only 5% of the black slaves transported across the Atlantic actually went to the modern U.S. Most in fact went to Latin America to serve Hispanic slave-owners. But we don’t look at modern Hispanics as evil slave-owners.  http://atlantablackstar.com/2014/06/02/10-facts-about-the-arab-enslavement-of-black-people-not-taught-in-schools/

It is Islam’s stated intention to subjugate the world to Islam. The Islamic ideology, the NAZI ideology and the the Apartheid ideology is cut from the same cloth. Islam is an Apartheid system based on “religion”. It is a totalitarian system far worse than communism or the NAZI ideology ever was. Since its inception Islam is at war with the non – Islamic world. The Koran says, Muslims are the “Best” of people, non – Muslims are the “worst” of people. According to Surah 2:30. When Allah “created” Adam he appointed Adam as a viceroy “to rule the earth.” Surah 2:30. “Behold thy lord said to the angels. I will create A vicegerent on earth…” Muslims clams that they have inherited this vice regency. This is what is happening here. Muslims are trying to establish their authority over all non – Muslims. Muslims think they are gods representative on earth. A religion is a system of faith – based believes, that promise its adherers a rewarding spiritual life, in life, and eternal salvation after death. A religion has three components. 1. A Deity. 2. Followers, and. 3. A body of knowledge, that teaches the worshippers about their obligations and ultimate rewards. Islam is NOT a religion. Islam is a so – called Theocracy. Islam is a political, social, cultural, economical and legal system, rolled into one and presented as a “Religion”. In other words. The “Religion” is the sugar – coating on a very biter pill that makes Islam acceptable to the politically naïve. Islam cannot abide any political or democratic system of of government but it seeks to destroy it and replace it with the Islamic system of government. However Islam is to weak to win thou military conquest. The tools Islam uses to obtain its goal is, emigration, “reversion” (To built up the numbers) and deception. Muslims claim that Islam is a “religion” of “peace” and to prove it they quote the following Surah from the Qur’an. Surah 2:256. Let their be no compulsion In religion; Truth stands out Clear From Error: Whoever Rejects Evil and believes in Hath grasped The most Trustworthy Handhold that never breaks. And Allah Hearieth and knoweth all Things. (Beautiful, don’t you think?) Surah 5:69. Those who believe (in the Qur’an) Those who follow the Jewish (scriptures) And the Sabians and the Christians – Any who believe in Allah and the last day. And work righteousness- On them shall be no fear, nor shall they giver. However, they omit to add that Surah 2:256 and Surah 5:69 was abrogated by Surah 2:106. Surah 2:106. None of our revelations Do we abrogate, or cause to be forgotten, But we substitute Something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things. (At first glance, that sounds reasonable, but let us read further) The following ayah is what is now applicable. (This is what Muslims are obliged by their religion to do) Surah 5:51. O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your Friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he Amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guides not A people unjust. (OK. Now Muslims cannot be friends with non – Muslims. But what is to be done to non – Muslims?) Surah 9:29. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day. Nor hold that forbidden. Which hath been forbidden By Allah And his Messenger, Nor Acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from The People of the Book, Until they pay the Jizyah With willing submission, And feel themselves subdued. (*The People of the Book = Jews and Christians) Also to be considered is the Hadith. Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24: Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform a that, then they save their lives an property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”] Sensible people don’t want Islamoapartheid and Islamonazis in their country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_slave_trade

cair-1.jpgUAE Lists Muslim Brotherhood as Terrorist Group . Brotherhood members front and The Guardian regularly is using this Group as a source of information from people such as Nihad Awad http://www.theguardian.com/profile/nihad-awad Nihad Awad CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood Members such as Mohammed Elibiary who hold significant positions in the current Obama administration. http://www.allenbwest.com/2014/11/uae-declares-cair-terrorist-organization-ps-muslims-discovered-america/

CAIR.png

Despite being named to the UAE list of designated terrorist groups, and exposed by the FBI for its terrorist ties, Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group, CAIR, has forced the resignation of a senior government and economics teacher at Foster High School in Richmond for handing out materials to students that described Islam as an “ideology of war.”

CM_WOn9WUAAZRvF.jpg

 

 

CAIR further claims that U.S. foreign policy is dictated largely by Zionist extremists. As Evan McCormick of the Center for Security Policy puts it: “By convincing moderate Muslims that they are being targeted unfairly by the Bush administration’s [anti-terror] policies, CAIR incites fear in members of that demographic. If innocent Muslims are then convinced that they will be the target of government action, then they have no incentive to reject an extremist ideology that resists the government’s anti-terror policies. … This is the essence of CAIR’s strategy: shock moderate Muslims about the motivations of the U.S. Government, turn them into post-[9/11] victims, and then recruit them as supporters for your political agenda when they are ripe for the taking.” Along the same lines, a civil suit filed by the estate of 9/11 victim and former high-ranking FBI counter-terrorism agent John O’Neill, Sr. asserted that CAIR’s goal “is to create as much self-doubt, hesitation, fear of name-calling, and litigation within police departments and intelligence agencies as possible so as to render such authorities ineffective in pursuing international and domestic terrorist entities.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a notorious Islamic Supremacist group in the United States that masquerades as a civil rights organization. CAIR famously complains about petty slights to Muslim-Americans while ignoring much more serious human rights violations against non-Muslims in the Islamic world.

Histroy of this for which this Eurabia Project is apart of Eurabia (catalogued at WorldCat; 1975-1977) edited by the President of the Association for Franco-Arab Solidarity, Lucien Bitterlein, and published collaboratively by the Groupe d’Etudes sur le Moyen-Orient (Geneva), France-Pays Arabes (Paris), and the Middle East International (London). The articles and editorials in this (1975-77) publication called for common Euro-Arab positions, at every level — social, economic, and commercial — and were contingent upon the fundamental political condition of European support for the Arab (and non-Arab) Muslim umma’s jihad against Israel

 

Europe’s multiculturalism is more of a surrender of its own indigenous culture to Islam than genuine coexistence.    

get-the-london-look-muslim-woman.jpg

Global jihad is driven by the 56 nation Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC), formerly known as the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Since its creation in 1969, the OIC has been dedicated to the destruction of the State of Israel
CYb64RYUMAQ088y.jpgand to the eventual implementation of sharia over the Western world. The OIC’s often-stated objectives have not prevented either the European Union or the United States from seeking close ties with the organization. At least theoretically, dhimmitude represents an interim status in which Islam conditionally accepts defeated subject peoples into its midst, provided they abide by the controls and limitations imposed upon them by their Muslim overlords. This willingness on the part of Islam to create a religiously legitimated civilization of domination and submission is often misleadingly characterized as tolerance.
12092326_10153120629252050_1476768991_n.jpg

In 1990, the OIC issued the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam. It represented the culmination of Muslim dissatisfaction with the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), a strictly secular document. The Preamble to the UN Declaration states: “Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” Article 1 states: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
Both statements are clearly contrary to the fundamental tenets of Islam where there is no such thing as the “inherent dignity” or the “equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family.” Neither the unbeliever nor the dhimmi have “inalienable rights” nor can such “rights” be the “foundation, of freedom, justice, and peace of the world.” In Islam, Allah is the source of human rights, all of which are conditional upon faithful obedience to his law as expressed in sharia and the hadiths.

 

The aim of the Islamic Caliphate is not a myth but remains a burning ambition in the hearts of all Muslims. All Muslims accept the Quran as the Word of Allah The Ummah is any county with one Muslim in as this is part of the Islamic Community as the Ummah  is Uniformity which eradicates the national identities of the peoples it conquers, Coptic identity of Egypt, the Indian identity of Pakistan, Assyrian identity of Iraq, Persian identity of Iran Hindu and Buddhist from Malaysia Suppressed or totally wiped away. Islam whats Collective identity of the Islamic nations as we see Judaism and Christianity replaced  by the Ummah in the Middle east

Bat Ye’or is not optimistic about the future of Europe and, to some extent, an Obama-led United States. She shares her concerns with her readers In her conclusion: While writing this study I was reminded of a question that greatly troubled me twenty-five years ago when researching Les Chrétientés d’Orient entre jihad et dhimmitude (1991). How did Christian peoples and states, some with powerful armies and the richest cultures of their times, collapse when faced with the onslaught of jihad and dhimmitude from the seventh to the fifteenth centuries? Now I no longer ask myself this question. The breakdown process that I used to study and documented in old chronicles I have seen taking place in today’s Europe. When I examined the past I saw it repeated in the present, under my very eyes. Indeed, the present situation is reminiscent of the one that followed the Muslim conquests. Keeping Christian officials in their positions maintained a semblance of continuity. Behind their foggy screen, Islamization could penetrate within every stratum of the vanquished societies. However, with time, the collapse of this edifice revealed the true role of these ministers, whose job was to enforce upon their people the caliphate’s orders, under pain of death. I was missing one essential link in the chain of events: the motivations of human beings that lead them in an unswerving direction within the chaos of events, the undeviating route toward an ultimate objective. Now this link is revealed in the mix of fears, cowardice, corruption, hatred and short-term ambitions that within the space of forty years have led Europe along the road to Eurabia, an interim stage in an even more profound change.

Brotherhood’s ‘Civilization Jihad’ in America The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy for realizing its mission of “destroying Western civilization from within” was described in an undated 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document entitled “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.” In this part, we investigate what they’re doing to implement it. Brotherhood Influence Operations Against ‘Policy Groups’: Conservatives & the GOP A closer look at one of the Ikhwan’s most successful influence operations: its penetration and manipulation of the Republican Party and the conservative movement in America.

 

convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.” Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”

The game being played by Groups such as Unite Against Fascism in the UK, these Groups are funded from Cairo and the Middle East, all operational out of London. This is part of the War Cultural Jihad Stealth or Jihad, To make out they are the new Israelite’s being persecuted in order to gain public symphony’s and use our best quality’s such as Empathy and being altruistic . It was under Dhimmitude that Islamic ruler’s made Christians and Jewish the “people of the book” ware different clothing, hats, symbols back in 800’s around the same time they started the slave trade in Africa. Jizyah the tax had to be paid.

The world Slave come’s from when Arabs took slav’s. they have white washed their history which is pure human abuse, torture and suffering from day one, They took Millions of white women as sex slaves in 1700s from Europe yet we never know of this in main stream history . Then they play this game, making out it’s the West, Blaming Israel or Blaming Buddhist’s or the Hindus in the war’s they create then as cover use Media to make out it’s every one else it’s pure deception & sick.

A senior Amnesty International official has been found to have private links with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and revolutionary Islamists accused of plotting a coup in an Arab state. Amnesty’s director of faith and human rights, Yasmin Hussein, stayed overnight at the residence of a Muslim Brotherhood advisor during an official visit to Egypt in direct contravention of Amnesty guidelines. Her husband was also named as an alleged Islamist in documents relating to a 2013 sedition trial in the United Arab Emirates.

The Muslim Brotherhood logo fits its motto:

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!” [1]

  • The Brotherhood’s goal is to turn the world into an Islamist empire. The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is a revolutionary fundamentalist movement to restore the caliphate and strict shariah (Islamist) law in Muslim lands and, ultimately, the world. Today, it has chapters in 80 countries.

“It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.” —Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna[2]

  • The Brotherhood wants America to fall. It tells followers to be “patient” because America “is heading towards its demise.” The U.S. is an infidel that “does not champion moral and human values and cannot lead humanity.”Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[3]
  • The Brotherhood claims western democracy is “corrupt,” “unrealistic.” and “false.”
    Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef [4]
  • The Brotherhood calls for jihad against “the Muslim’s real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States. Waging jihad against both of these infidels is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.” —Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[5]
  • The Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat in 1981 for making peace with the hated “Zionist entity.”[6]It also assassinated Egypt’s prime minister in 1948 and attempted to assassinate President Nasser in 1954.[7]
  • Hamas is a “wing of the Muslim Brotherhood,” according to the Hamas Charter, Chapter 2. The Charter calls for the murder of Jews, the “obliteration” of Israel and its replacement with an Islamist theocracy.
  • The Brotherhood supports Hezbollah’s war against the Jews. Brotherhood leader Mahdi Akef declared he was “prepared to send 10,000 jihad fighters immediately to fight at the side of Hezbollah” during Hezbollah’s war against Israel in 2006.[8]
  • The Brotherhood glorifies Osama bin Laden. Osama is “in all certainty, a mujahid (heroic fighter), and I have no doubt in his sincerity in resisting the occupation, close to Allah on high.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 2007[9]
  • The Brotherhood “sanctioned martyrdom operations in Palestine.…They do not have bombs, so they turn themselves into bombs. This is a necessity.” Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Dec. 17, 2010[10]
  • The Brotherhood advocates violent jihad: The “change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life,” said Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi in a September 2010 sermon.[11] Major terrorists came out of the Muslim Brotherhood, including bin Laden’s deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (mastermind of the 9/11 attacks).[12]
  • The Brotherhood advocates a deceptive strategy in democracies: appear moderate and use existing institutions to gain power. “The civilizational-jihadist process…is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious overall other religions,” reads a US Muslim Brotherhood 1991 document.[13] It believes it can conquer Europe peacefully: “After having been expelled twice, Islam will be victorious and reconquer Europe….I am certain that this time, victory will be won not by the sword but by preaching and [Islamic] ideology.” — Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, “Fatwa,” 2003[14]
  • The Brotherhood uses democracy, but once in power it will replace democracy with fundamentalist shariah law because it is the “true democracy.” “The final, absolute message from heaven contains all the values which the secular world claims to have invented….Islam and its values antedated the West by founding true democracy.”
    Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, Nov. 2007[15]
  • The Brotherhood’s view of women’s rights is to subjugate and segregate women: The ideal society would include “a campaign against ostentation in dress and loose behaviour…segregation of male and female students; private meetings between men and women, unless within the permitted degrees of relationship, to be counted as a crime for which both will be censured…prohibition of dancing and other such pastimes.” —Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, “Five Tracts”[16]
  • The Brotherhood supports Female Genital Mutilation: “[the Americans] wage war on Muslim leaders, the traditions of its faith and its ideas. They even wage war against female circumcision, a practice current in 36 countries, which has been prevalent since the time of the Pharaohs.” —Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 2007[17]
  • The Brotherhood will not treat non-Muslim minorities, such as Coptic Christians, as equals. “Allah’s word will reign supreme and the infidels’ word will be inferior.” —Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Badi, Sept. 2010[18]
  • The Brotherhood refuses to commit to continuing the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.[19]Muslim Brotherhood leaders have said that “as far as the movement is concerned, Israel is a Zionist entity occupying holy Arab and Islamic lands…and we will get rid of it no matter how long it takes.”Former Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammed Mahdi Akef, 2005 and 2007[20]
  • The Brotherhood has anti-Semitic roots. It supported the Nazis, organized mass demonstrations against the Jews with slogans promoting ethnic cleansing like “Down with the Jews!” and “Jews get out of Egypt and Palestine!” in 1936; carried out a violent pogrom against Egypt’s Jews in November 1945; and made sure that Nazi collaborator and Palestinian Mufti al-Husseini was granted asylum in Egypt in 1946.[21]
  • The Brotherhood remains virulently anti-Semitic. “Today the Jews are not the Israelites praised by Allah, but the descendants of the Israelites who defied His word. Allah was angry with them and turned them into monkeys and pigs….There is no doubt that the battle in which the Muslims overcome the Jews [will come]….In that battle the Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them.” —Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi[22]

Islam is not a religion preaching that we must do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Instead, it is a totalitarian system aiming for political domination of the world. The Nazis understood this too, recognising in Islam a kindred evil soul. Adolf Hitler deplored the face that the Germanic Franks had won in Tours in 732. “Had Charles Martel not been victorious, ” Hitler told his inner circle, “then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies the heroism and opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so.
Albert Speer, Nazi Germany’s Minister of Armaments, wrote in his diary that Hitler regretted that Muhammad had not come to the Germans instead of Arabs. “It’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion,” he told Speer, Nazi Germany’s Minister of Armaments, wrote in his diary that Hitler regretted that Muhammad had not come to the Germans instead of the Arabs. “It’s been our misfortune to have the wrong religion,” he told Speer. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” Similarly, Heinrich Himmler, the leader of the SS, told Felx Kersten, his masseur and confidant, he was aghast that King Sobieski had halted the Turks at the gates of Vienna in 1683.

Referring to Muhammad’s vow that Muslims who die while waging jihad, Islam’s holy war, go straight to heaven and sex with beautiful women for eternity, Himmler declared, “This is the kind of Language a soldier understands. When he believes that he will be welcomed in this manner in the afterlife, he will be willing to give his life, he will be enthusiastic about going to battle and not fear death. You may call this primitive and you may laugh about it, but it is based on deeper wisdom. A religion must speak a man’s language.

Documents in the German Federal Archives in Berlin confirm that the SS leadership considered Islam to be ” a practical and sympathetic religion for soldiers” because it promises heaven for those who fall in battle.

Polygyny was appealing to the Nazis for the same reason it appeals to Islam.               “Women are your fields: go, then, into your field as you please,” says the Koran.  In his 1993 book Some to Mecca Turn to Pray, British professor Mervyn Hiskett, who spoke of Muslims with much sympathy, referred to a colleague of his, a “senior Muslim academic of the highest personal integrity, who holds an Honours Degree and PHD of a British university. He is far from being a militant of the ayatollahs but is simply a strict and principled Muslim. This man had four wives. He argues that the future of Islam the religion of mankind, Largely depended on maintaining the Islamic rule of polygyny. In a slimier vein, Himmler encouraged his SS men to have as many “Aryan” children as possible. It should come as no surprise that the Nazis also admired Islam’s zeal for dehumanising and slaughtering Jews. “We changed [the Jews] into detested apes, transforming them into apes and swine. The admiration between Nazism and Islam is mutual. CMTRJmdUAAA5FVY.jpg

Morbid Islamic racism and anti-semitism was created 1,400 years ago by prophet Mohammed. It is emulated by around 1.6 billion Muslims around the world today. Islam was the true cause for the ultimate statelessness of the world’s Jews. During more than 580 slave raids European shores for more than 1,000 years the Muslim propaganda spread into Europe and was eventually adopted by the Hitler. This deep-seated Islamic racism to target the Jewish people and non-Muslims to please Allah was the founding strategy for a fabricated people, the “Palestinians”. After Israel’s borders, which included Jordan, was drawn in 1917 Sunni Muslims under the leadership of Amin al-Husseini began a campaign to fill the British Mandate, which was largely inhabitable, with an uncontrolled mass of illegal Muslims from Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The largest crowds arrived in the mid 1920’s to late 1930’s, through rapid, illegal and uncontrolled mass migration (hijrah). This illegal flood of people was noted and recorded by the British government as the REAL cause of the foreign “Palestinian” presence in the region. They were never born there, and none of them originated from the British Mandate. The hijra, an intrinsic part of Jihad, had only one sole purpose: jihad for Allah to create an Islamic state of the British Mandate and eliminate all non-Sunni elements in the region. The Sunni Arab instructions was to commit genocide of Jews, no matter where they are or how long it takes. These bedouines became known as Saudis and in 1932 after many massacres and wars between other Muslim tribes the land of Saudi Arabia was created. The Sunni battle to occupy the British Mandate and Israel was spearheaded by Hitler ally Amin al-Husseini, from Syria, who encouraged Hitler to emulate the Armenian genocide, which he had personally taken part in, and kill Jews. al-Husseini offered his own Muslim army to the Nazi’s to help them in the task And THAT is the real story behind the Palestinian-Israeli conflict that media will never tell you today.

 

 

GRAND MUFTI: The Grand Mufti began by thanking the Fuhrer for the great honor he had bestowed by receiving him. He wished to seize the opportunity to convey to the Fuhrer of the Greater German Reich, admired by the entire Arab world, his thanks of the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially the Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches. The Arab countries were firmly convinced that Germany would win the war and that the Arab cause would then prosper. The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely the English, the Jews and the Communists. Therefore they were prepared to cooperate with Germany with all their hearts and stood ready to participate in the war, not only negatively by the commission of acts of sabotage and the instigation of revolutions, but also positively by the formation of an Arab Legion. The Arabs could be more useful to Germany as allies than might be apparent at first glance, both for geographical reasons and because of the suffering inflicted upon them by the English and the Jews. Furthermore, they had had close relations with all Muslim nations, of which they could make use in behalf of the common cause. The Arab Legion would be quite easy to raise. An appeal by the Mufti to the Arab countries and the prisoners of Arab, Algerian, Tunisian and Moroccan nationality in Germany would produce a great number of volunteers eager to fight. Of Germany’s victory the Arab world was firmly convinced, not only because the Reich possessed a large army, brave soldiers and military leaders of genius, but also because the Almighty could never award the victory to an unjust cause.

Astrology/Astrotheology

City of the twins

print-canaletto.jpg

Dr Samuel Johnson was a great lover of England’s metropolis and wrote. When a man is tired of London he is tired of life.
Yet the majority of London’s teeming millions do not realise that it is a magical city, with much astrological and other lore centred around it. Take St Paul’s Cathedral, For instance. Its first stone was laid when sun was in Gemini, the sign of the heavenly twins, Castor and Pollux. They are shown in the background of our illustration, and are based on one in a antique collection in the Prado Museum, Madrid.
London’s horoscope according to ancient astrologers is given as having 18 degrees of Gemini on the ascendant, and 13 degrees of Aquarius on the mid heaven. Leo rules the forth house and Sagittarius the seventh in an ‘intercepted’ map, according to these same astrologers, and I am not going to argue with this, though you can if you like!

StPauls1_WEB.jpg

City of the Sun

The site of St Paul s was once used for the temple of the Sun god, in an age that long preceded Christianity. The origin of London’s name was ‘El-on-don’, meaning City of the Sun. The temple is thought to have been built under Gemini, the sign of the twins.
It is interesting to note that astrological lore is commemorated in the stones of St Paul s Cathedral. The western pediment bears the emblematic figures of the four seasonal divisions of the zodiac: spring, summer, autumn and winter, On the top of the pediment is a hieroglyphic representation of the Sun in the highest point of the heavens, in the constellation of Gemini, with the Sun’s rays striking at a centaur. This , of course, represents Sagittarius, the opposite sign to Gemini.
A further link with astrological lore is revealed in the old records which say that the foundation stone of st pauls was laid ‘on the day of Castor and Pollux’ in June 1675. The Sun was in the sign of the twins, and the following doggerel commemorates their place in the zodiac, Although this is not historical, it is worth quoting because it teaches the beginner in astrology the sequence of the signs.

‘The Ram, the Bull, and Heavenly Twins:
Then, next the Crab, the Lion shines
The Virgin and the Scales, followed by
The Scorpion, Archer, and He-Goat,
The Man who holds the Watering Pot, and
The Fish with glittering scales.’

If you proceed through the Cathedral from the north to the south entrance, you can see another high pediment on which is depicted the figure of Hercules, with the Saltier Cross on his back. In ancient mythology, Hercules represented the masculine nature of the Sun. The Saltier Cross in the shape of an X, is a goniometer, or double pair of compasses, which shows the exact angle made by the Sun in its two crossings of the Equator at the time when the original temple was built on the site. (Note the angle indicated by the cross gradually decreases at the rate of about one minute every hundred years.) Providing that Ptolemy’s original (solar) calculations were correct, this cross, which represents the Sun’s angle, should be completely closed in about 140,000 years from now. The Ecliptic will then coincide with the Equator, which should result in an equal length of day and night all the year round, lasting for a thousand years!
This Saltier Cross, or measure of the Sun’s angle behind Hercules, was once believed to be the sing of the crucifixion of man. Though ostensibly a temple of Christian worship, St Paul’s as it stands now, is an astrological lecture in stone, having been begun in Gemini, on the particular day of a pagan temple to the Sun.
Gemini, as has been said, is the constellation of the Heavenly Twins whose ruler is the planet Mercury. Mercury is never far distant from the Sun, and is the planet of communication and commerce, while the Sun is that of rulership and success. Commerce has always been important to the well-being of London. Great newspapers (ruled by Mercury) have their headquarters in London, these express the communicative powers of Mercury. Both the Sun and Mercury are therefore closely identified with the twins, Castor and Pollux.
So London is ruled by Mercury. And it is held that whenever its ascendant or midheaven is affected by the transit of planets, important changes come about in London. In 1962, the great constellation and eclipse occurred in Aquarius, the midheaven of London. This preceded changes of a drastic nature and the obliteration of the familiar scene, as Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of the new,

The rebuilding

It was after that great eclipse that London began to be rebuilt with many of her old and beautiful buildings being razed to the ground in order that concrete ‘matchboxes’ should be erected. This was upsetting to many Londoners, who love their ancient city. As a result, most of London’s former, fascinating skyline has gone, and the night-illuminated concrete matchboxes standing on end do not make up for it. As the familiar landmarks and buildings disappeared so, too, did many of our old customs.
Gradually, the metropolis ceased to seem English and became ‘international’. Now many differ-many races living with sight and races living, within sight and sound of St Paul’s.

More changes duest-pauls.jpg

Since 1962 London has changed a great deal and, as there have been eclipses in Aquarius and Leo in this year of 1979, further changes are due in our history and development. The signs of Aquarius and Leo are sensitive to this city’s destiny as the old astrologer, William Lilly, knew when he forecast the Great Fire and the Plague of London, both commemorated in the Monument, which was erected in the city. If you have Mercury well placed in your natal chart, it is said that London will be fortunate for you, while if you have Gemini on your midheaven, with well-placed and well-aspected Mercury in it, the city can bring you fame and good luck. ‘Turn again, Whittington, Lord Mayor of London,’ goes the old rhyme, and although the story may be apocryphal, the symbolism is very rich indeed. Dick Whittington had ‘Mercury strong in his chart. Legend tells us he was accompanied by a cat, which is a solar anmal, while the bells which rang out to give him his mystic message of encouragement are Gemini ruled (bells come under the rulership of Mercury) as they ‘communicate’, being rung in the past to warn citizens of danger, and also to signify joyful events. People who could not read or write, or who lived far from sources of news, could tell by the pealing of the bells if something special was going on in London, and flock to witness it. ‘Oranges and lemons Say the bells of St Clement’s’ This, again, is a survival of the Sun – Mercury association with London. Oranges are ruled by the Sun, and lemons by Mercury. Oranges and lemons were also used in ancient times as tributes to the heavenly twins, Castor and Pollux. It is interesting to note how ancient lore and customs are perpetuated in song and story, long after the original meanings have been forgotten. For those readers who have taste for astrological symbolism, the work of Charubel and La Volasfera (as translated by Sepharial) might be interesting. As ‘there are no buckets at the Well of Truth: he who desires to drink thereat must descend himself,’ I give the translations of London’s ascending degree and midheaven degree according to both, with all there wealth of symbolism. Charubel says of London’s ascendant (18 degrees of Gemini), @The number 6 rules this degree. It denotes a mercurial person, an expert in all mercurial employments.’
On the other hand, La Volasfera says of this degree, ‘A flying arrow. It indicates lofty aspirations, keen mental power, penetration and executive ability. One who will cut his own line in life and excite attention, but who may, by his destiny, fail in achieving the results aimed at. It is a degree of execution.’

Price of failure

Since we must apply these translations to London, a city not a person, Charubel depicts it as versatile and mercurial (signifying trade and communications) and La Volasfera seems to indicate the many people who, in London’s history, tried and failed. Some of these were executed on Tower Hill. Of the 13 degrees of Aguarius on Londons’ midheaven, Charubel says, ‘A tastefully furnished room with a large wax candle on a round table in centre.’ ‘A lover of his home, a person of conventional proclivities who may be called a “house proud” individual’ Well, Londoners are notoriously proud and fond of there city, so let that suffice. As for the Round Table, if it conjres up visions of King Arthur and his knights there is a vague link there, too.
Degree of assertion

La Volasfera says of this degree, ‘A cavalier fully armed. This is an indication of a militant and aggressive nature, the sign and suave in manner, is ever alive to his own interests and on the defensive. At times he will be led into dangers by the aggressive attitude he will display in regard to his fellows, and though well equipped by nature for all emergencies, he will never be so safe and free from harm as when will show a vigilant and alert nature, much power of self defence, and will be remarkable for his capacity either in the military world or that of polemics. It is a degree of assertion.’ If we translate the word ‘he’ into ‘the city’, that is not a bad summing up of London and Londoners, who are always at their best in times of crisis. As the last war showed, a ‘regard for others’ was very well marked. These translations of the degrees must not be accepted as verbatim. They are the impressions the degrees made on the seers and mystics in question. London is an ancient city, full of ancient lore, myths and magic, which few have bothered to search for. It has a mystique of its own, and a history that goes back as far as civilisation itself. It may now be a city of concrete matchboxes, council towers, overcrowed and, let’s face it dirty to boot, but the magic of London is implicit and the sombrely brooding St Paul’s has its share of it, with its wealth of astrological and mythological symbolism.

This form of cross (resembling the Greek letter Tau)

Ancient tradition accounted for four temples that successively occupied the site Do the Four Tau Crosses Represent the Four temple’s ? as it would be The Two Eagles are symbolic of Zeus facing East and West

Delphi was believed to be determined by Zeus when he sought to find the center of his “Grandmother Earth”. He sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities, and the path of the eagles crossed over Delphi where the omphalos, or navel of Gaia was found.
The site of Delphi is located in upper central Greece, on multiple plateaux/terraces along the slope of Mount Parnassus, and includes the Sanctuary of Apollo, the site of the ancient Oracle.

Modern “Franciscan” Tau pendant

The Cross of Tau, named after the Greek letter it resembles, is a form of the Christian cross symbol.[1] It is also variously St. Anthony’s Cross, Old Testament Cross, Anticipatory Cross, Cross Commissee, Egyptian Cross, Advent Cross, Croce taumata, Saint Francis’s Cross, Crux Commissa.[citation needed]

The shape of the letter tau or T was interpreted as representing a crucifix from antiquity. The staurogram, from Greek ΣTAΥPOΣ “cross”, was a tau-rho ligature used to abbreviate the Greek word for cross in very early New Testament manuscripts such as P66, P45 and P75.[2] The tau was also considered a symbol of salvation due to the identification of the tau with the sign which in Ezechiel 9:4 was marked on the forehead of the saved ones (וְהִתְוִיתָ תָּו עַל־מִצְחֹות הָאֲנָשִׁים “set a mark (tav; after the Phoenician cross-shape 𐤕) on the forehead of the men”), or due to the tau-shaped outstretched hands of Moses in Exodus 17:11.[2]

St. Anthony of Egypt bore a cross in the form of a tau on his cloak.[1] The Tau Cross is most commonly used in reference to the Franciscan Order and Saint Francis of Assisi, who adopted it as his personal coat of arms after hearing Pope Innocent III talk about the Tau symbol.[3] It is now used as a symbol of the Franciscan Order.
