[Saturday 26th January 2002]

On a wet and windy Saturday hundreds marched, united in solidarity with Palestine and against Israeli terrorism. The march starting near the Albert Hall in London and progressed to the Israeli embassy in Kensington, demanding an end to "Israel's war on Palestine".

The weather could not stop
the passion of the protesters.

The turnout was good, considering the extreme weather with umbrellas buckling in the gale winds and the rain soaking through the tightest waterproofs. Only one aspect of the turnout was of noticeable disappointment - the lack of Muslim presence. Perhaps only one in seven present was a Muslim. Where were the Muslims?


Question to Muslims

When non-Muslims,
this elderly lady (above),
and the mother and her three children (below),
were walking the streets of London
in the pouring rain,
in the chilling wind,
cold and wet,
fighting YOUR cause
what were YOU doing?

Think back
Saturday 26th January
around 12 noon,
what were you doing?
Still asleep?
Watching TV?
Enjoying lunch?
Sitting comfortably,
Relaxed in a warm room?

Have your answers ready,
we will ALL be asked.


"Stop Bush & Blairs War"






"Remember Vanunu"

The demonstration was joined by the "Free Vanunu" vigil, held outside the Israeli embassy every Saturday for the last 10 years.

Mordechai Vanunu was a technician at israels Dimona nuclear installation when in 1985 he discovered the plant was secretly producing nuclear weapons. He left israel and broke the story to the Sunday Times, his photos and evidence showed that israel had stockpiled 200 nuclear warheads.

Shimon Peres, the father of Israel's nuclear programme (which started in 1956), was furious and ordered Vanunus kidnapping. On 30th Sept 1986, days before the Sunday Times story was published Vanunu was lured from London to Rome by a female Mossad agent/prostitute (Cheryl Ben Tov codename Cindy, maiden name Cheryl Hanin). Cheryl had entered the UK in her sister-in-laws name Cynthia Hanin and used Cythia's vacant apartment in Rome where Vanunu was kidnapped, drugged, boxed and shipped to israel as diplomatic cargo (which ment the authorities could not inspect it). Once in israel, he was sentenced to 18 years of solitary confinement for treason.

Whilst in London, MI-5 and the foreign editor of the Daily Mirror, Nicholas Davies (revealed to be a full blown Mossad agent) helped israel track down Vanunu and under personal orders of Robert Maxwell a disinformation story was published in the Mirror discrediting Vanunu days before the Sunday Times article was to appear. In return for MI-5 help Thatcher requested that the kidnapping be done outside of the UK, hence the need for the Mossad prostitute who by the way was last reported to be living with husband Ofer, a major in Mossad, in a secluded villa in Orlando (Longwood), close to Disney-world. According to acquaintances in Israel she and her husband still work for Mossad and will return to Israel when their current assignment abroad is over. Her cover is is a time-share operative while her husbands is working for an Orlando real estate firm

The fine details of the kidnapping were revealed by Ari Ben-Menashe, a former Mossad agent, in his book "Profits of War : Inside the Secret U.S.-Israeli Arms Network". Details on Cheryl Hanin and Ofer Ben Tov are from a Sunday Times article by Uzi Mahnaimi (6 April 1997)

Muslims and non-Muslims United Against Israel

Perhaps this is the best lesson Muslims can take away from this demonstration - there are many non-Muslims out there that share our revulsion of israel and its policies against the Palestinians, and their numbers are growing daily. We need to actively seek them out and unite with them on these common human rights issues.

( Obviously this should not in anyway lead to us compromising our Islamic stance or principles. We unite when there is commonality of viewpoints - we do not sell our principles in order to achieve unity. )
