Muslims From The U.K. Who Act On Their Deen

They are not spiritual searchers. They are to the manner born, not victims of Adult-Onset Islam. But the Islam they were born into became, for one  reason or another, more intense in their minds and hearts -- it's always Islam that wins Muslim hearts and minds, and nothing else -- and they decided to act on it. O how? By going  off to Syria, and fighting the Jihad, which is what can happen when you rediscover That Old-Time Religion.

A few representative samples, here.

Pro Hamas Protest in Pensacola

Pro-Hamas Banner in Pensacola

Yesterday in downtown Pensacola a contingent of pro-Hamas supporters showed up with handmade and professional signs. A banner held by two burly kaffiyeh draped bearded young men was emblazoned with "Israel want peace or Land"?  Small children, faces painted with Palestinian flags, held signs saying “Sava Gaza”. They were  entreating on-lookers and drivers stopped at the traffic light at the junction of Palafox and Garden Streets to hail them with thumbs up signs and honks from cars waiting for the light to change.  It was the last Friday of Ramadan, al Quds day.  Quds Day was established by the late Ayatollah Khomeini in protest to Israel’s occupation of its eternal capital, Jerusalem, supporting the Palestinian cause.  Demonstrations on Al Quds day erupted around the Muslim Ummah from Pakistan to Tehran to Paris to London and Calgary.  Throngs in these processions accused Israel of genocide in Gaza against defenseless Palestinian civilians. There were other pro-Hamas demonstrations here in the US in major cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle.  Jewish and non-Jewish supporters have also launched opposing Stand for Israel rallies in a number of these major cities.  

Save Gaza Poster in Pensacola

The  humanitarian crisis arising from Israel’s  and Egypt’s blockade and the  rocket and tunnel war in Gaza  is reflected in themes  on posters and banners in demonstrations like the one here in Pensacola. They reflect those propounded by Hamas media minders that Western news representatives report; the deaths and injuries to hundreds of defenseless women and children.  The latest example of that was the news that broke yesterday that 17 were killed at an UNWRA school-refuge center from alleged IDF tank fire. That was disputed by IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner who indicated that it could equally have been from misfired Hamas rockets that have fallen in the vicinity    Al Quds Day marked the 17th day of the rocket cum tunnel war in Gaza between a determined Israel and resolute Hamas and its terrorist partners in the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.  In Pensacola, an activist in the local Muslim community sent out an alert via a Facebook post seeking like minded folks to show up, heft a sign or banner and engage in the exercise of their free speech.   70 members in the local community signed up on Facebook  to come to the protest rally.  However, we counted less than two dozen at the downtown rally.
