Today is the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack against Western civilisation.
On 30th August of this year, Time Magazine announced that “A military judge on Friday set a date in early 2021 for the start of the long-stalled war crimes trial of five men being held at the Guantanamo Bay prison on charges of planning and aiding the 9/11 terrorist attacks.” (1)
I speak today, not as a fitness instructor, not as a doctor, but as someone who was there at the London Bombings on 7 July 2005. I was also there at Hillsborough on that fateful day of 15 April 1989. I know only too well how frightening such events can be. I am always moved to see (2) U2- Walk On (9/11 Tribute.)
Thoughts and prayers
Many people have said that their thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of this tragic event. Let me be blunt, thoughts and prayers may be nice. Vigils and changing your facebook profile picture may show solidarity but in the end, it won’t make the slightest bit of difference.
Our security services
Our security services work round the clock 25 hours a day 8 days a week with minimal resources with very little reward. Yet for every terrorist attack that occurs there must be many more that they have foiled. According to BBC news the UK security services COBRA make a terrorist-related arrest every day.
Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. The problem here is that is what we keep doing.
The London bombings were terrifying however it was a million times worse for those people with children. I really feel for the parents and families of those injured and killed.
What can we do? PLENTY.
Firstly please watch this video from Riaz Khan where he says if you know of anyone who has such thoughts “grass them up” i.e. tell the police (3). I don’t always agree with this man but I have tremendous respect for him. On this occasion, he speaks good sense.
Secondly, we stop financing them.
I refer you to this video from the Australian Islamic Priest Imam Tawhidi where he accepts that some halal certification funds terrorism (4.)
Look at this transcript.
TR “Yeah you know halal certification?”
Imam Tawhidi “Yes
TR “Do you agree that funds terrorism?”
Imam Tawhidi “I agree that some halal certification authorities fund terrorism.”
TR “Because most people in this country especially our politicians when they hear us moan about halal like This is the reason why my moan about halal yeah. When I mean if I mean innocent and the fact that it’s not labelled in any of our supermarkets but when you’re eating of some chicken before that somehow that’s funded freedom fighters. What you had is somewhere in this globe and we’re made to look they look upon us like we’re stupid when we say this but here you are an imam. You’re an imam you obviously know what you’re talking about with regards to halal certification and even you accept that some of the money goes to freedom fighting terrorism”
Imam Tawhidi “The largest the largest halal certification authority on earth is in Indonesia they produce everything from meat to noodles the migraine it’s it’s everywhere.”
TR “Even have the halal certification even covers the delivery
Imam Tawhidi “Everything.”
TR “The delivery has to be halal certified the delivery come up.”
Imam Tawhidi “Not necessarily”
TR “Because I thought that’s what they were looking to branch into. Now because it I think we’ve opened five, five no abbatoirs in the UK imported I believe five thousand Pakistani halal butchers.”
Imam Tawhidi “You can you can say it has to be a Muslim driver that delivers it but it’s actually the one who slaughters and the one who prepares the meat the animal the Indonesian halal certification authorities have direct and public links with the Mohammedan organization responsible for the Bali bombings and there’s no halal certification authority on earth that doesn’t have either directly or indirectly links with Indonesian halal certification authorities and now how
you gonna prove that is a mission but there are links. It’s impossible Indonesia in itself plays a big role in the economy in the Halal industry globally even in Australia every way and I said from noodles to me it’s everything, everything.

Now don’t put yourself at risk when it comes to this. Don’t go on any demonstrations, that can lead to accusations of racism, being arrested or even losing your job.
So please go back to my article called Campaigners- learn from Back to the Future Part II (5.)
Campaigners- learn from Back to the Future Part II
A few days ago I was on facebook and I saw this picture. The fear of God went through me and I have written to the…
Religion of war
The Imam then went and called his faith the religion of war which I thought was somewhat controversial (6.)
Make the ultimate protest! Don’t buy it
If you object to Halal and Kosher then don’t buy it.
The first protest-go vegetarian.
If you are serious about stopping halal and kosher slaughter on animal cruelty reasons then you must go vegetarian. You must do to silence the pro halal lobby is to turn vegetarian. How can you say you oppose animal cruelty when your spending habits fund the killing of animals? They will always use that argument against you and they will be right!
In the land and resources, it takes to feed one meat eater you can feed at least 15 vegetarians.
The best method to avoid obesity is to turn vegetarian or preferably vegan. I can’t make my fat loss clients go vegetarian or vegan. I can only advise.
However, those that do all report a very safe, very rapid loss of excess body fat with a massive improvement in health.
Those that do all- without exception- report a very rapid, very safe loss of excess body fat. They all report a massive rise in energy and improvement in health.
Every time you eat meat then you are taking in animal fat, there is no way around that. However, you expose yourself to DASH.
Disease. You are exposing yourself to any disease that the animal had. I have often wondered if that is part of the reason why statistically speaking a lower risk of cancer. Imagine if you ate some liver or kidney which had metastasised cancer in it?
Antibiotics. You are exposing yourself to any antibiotics that the animal was on.
Steroids. Again you are exposing yourself to any steroids that the animal was on.
Hormones. Farm animals are often force-fed hormones. I have often wondered if that is part of the reason why statistically speaking female vegetarians have a lower risk of fibroids and breast lumps and the like.
2nd protest take part in the online campaigns on http://www.halalandkosher.co.uk
I have several campaigns to stop Halal. I am a 2nd generation Indian (non practising) Hindu. By 2nd generation I mean I was born and raised here in the UK. I am also a vegetarian animal lover. Sometimes I have felt physically sick when I have consumed a Halal or Kosher certified product e.g. a Mars Bar without my knowing. I object to Halal and Kosher because it’s forbidden for some religions to consume such products. They are barbaric forms of slaughter. There is an unregulated tax put on them and they are wholly unnecessary. All a follower of Islam has to say is Bismillah before each meal.
I don’t think we’ll ever get a ban on Halal and Kosher like there is in certain parts of the world. However by getting a clear label then we can make an informed choice.
That said in the 1980s (probably before you were born) the Friends of the Earth produced a list of all those companies using CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) in their aerosols. These chemicals damage the ozone layer.
Overnight 50% of such companies stopped. Within weeks the remainder did. It was then very easy to get a ban. If we get clear labelling and a tax then people won’t buy. It will be VERY easy to get a ban.
Please sign the parliamentary petition. I have worded it very carefully. If we can get 1 million signatures then the government will be forced to debate this in parliament.
It is strictly forbidden for some Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists and Christians to consume any halal or kosher certified product e.g Mars Bars or religiously slaughtered meat. Without clear prominent labelling we could be consuming it without knowing. All we are asking for is clear labelling to make an informed choice.
Simply go to http://www.halalandkosher.co.uk and get an updated list on those companies who supply Halal and Kosher items.
There is a lot to do to combat terrorism and the simplest thing to do is not to finance it.
