Wednesday 22nd May 2019 will be the 2nd anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing where Islamic terrorist Salman Abedi detonated a suicide bomb which killed 22 innocent people, injured hundreds and caused lasting psychological trauma to the survivors.
Abedi was believed to have been radicalised at Didsbury Mosque, where Mustafa Graf an Imam was recorded praying for “victory” for “our” brothers and sisters right now in Aleppo, Syria and Iraq. Islamic scholars referred to this as “military jihad” Graf also said in the sermon that ” Jihad for the sake of Allah is the source of pride and dignity for this nation. The Didsbury Mosque is controlled by the Islamic Centre (Manchester) an English association headed by Dr Haytham al-Khaffaff who is also the director of The Human Relief Foundation, which is a Muslim Brotherhood organisation blacklisted by Israel for terrorism.
A further 5 attendees of the Mosque are believed to have travelled to Syria to fight for ISIS, as well as this,not one of the Mosque attendees alerted the authorities about the calls for Jihad from the Imam, this is deeply troubling that ‘moderate’ Muslims won’t report the extremists to the relevant authorities and this is in my opinion why there is a lack of trust between the communities.
Now the advertising billboard on the Manchester Arena Car Park is now advertising Islamic propaganda. It reads Quran 5:32 “TO SAVE A LIFE, Is as if you’ve saved all of mankind” The verse quoted is a half verse, the full verse is “Because of that, we decreed on the children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption (done) in the land – it is as he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one- it is if he saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, (even) after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. Meaning the advertised verse is attempting to lure you into a false sense of security, by believing that the Quran preaches tolerance for all people despite their religion, when in fact the verse is justifying violence against non believers that are causing corruption in the land. The verse after reads “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,
Myself along with many others are outraged that the company in charge of the Manchester Arena would allow Islamic propaganda to be advertised at a site where children amongst others were murdered because of Islamic terrorism, it is an absolute disgrace, not only that, but it’s an insult to the victims and their families. We should all en mass contact the Manchester Arena and demand that it be removed and replaced with something that won’t insult and disrespect the memory of the victims.
