Zakir Naik is a threat

How’s Zakir Naik a threat? Perlis Mufti asks




has been reported by several Indian newspapers to be on the run to avoid prosecution in India for terrorism. — File picKUALA LUMPUR, March 1 — Perlis Mufti Datuk Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin questioned today how Dr Zakir Naik was a threat to Malaysia after a group of activists sued the government to get the Indian preacher deported.
"It's not unusual if they were from non-Muslim groups or kafirs (non-believers) who dislike preaches. However, what's unusual is if there are those professing themselves to be Muslims, but asking that the Muslim preacher who is famous for his oration be caught?
"What proof is there that he threatened? Is it because there were Hindus who converted to Islam (after attending Dr Zakir's talks), which made them so sensitive? Or are there other reasons?" Mohd Asri, popularly known as Dr Maza, wrote on his Facebook page today.
Though not naming anyone, Mohd Asri, known for his fairly balanced ideas of Islam, appeared to refer to a group of 19 human rights activists, who had filed a civil suit against the Malaysian government today, accusing it of failing to protect the country against the controversial televangelist.
The suit, among others, sought a government declaration that Dr Zakir was a threat to national security, called for a ban to prevent him from entering the country, and for him to be arrested and deported immediately.
Although the application called for an order for Dr Zakir to be arrested and deported, the group did not provide any proof that the Indian national was currently residing in Malaysia, save for his recent public appearances such as in Shah Alam and Perlis.
Although a fugitive in India, Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed had previously said that the controversial Islamic preacher was free to travel in Malaysia because he was not on any security watch list here.
He has been reported by several Indian newspapers to be on the run to avoid prosecution in India for terrorism.
Malaysia should not harbor a FUGITIVE that's all!
Zakir Naik has said that violence (jihad) is acceptable because it is written in the Koran!

Hadi’s bill against Islam, says ex-Jakim expert

Hadi’s bill against Islam, says ex-Jakim expert

 | February 25, 2017
'Mercy is the all-pervasive objective of the shariah.'
       Nurul-Haq-Shahrir-Hadi
 
PETALING JAYA: A shariah expert who served as consultant researcher and fatwa writer to the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) has taken PAS to task over its plan to introduce heavier penalties for shariah offences, saying it is nothing more than a “political product” to capture the Muslim vote.
Nurul Haq Shahrir, who is currently on a special panel for Islamic law transformation under Majlis Dakwah Negara, the government’s top council on the propagation of Islam, also dismissed claims that the proposed amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, also known as Act 355, were to uphold the teachings of Islam.
“In fact, it is against Islam and has nothing to do with the shariah,” said Nurul, who is an expert on Islamic jurisprudence and comparative religion and speaks seven languages, including Arabic, Hebrew and Latin.
He said the bill, because it seeks to impose stiffer sentences, was itself contrary to the spirit of the shariah as stated in the Quran and exemplified by the Prophet.
Citing from books authored by traditional Islamic scholars, Nurul said punishing was never the objective of Islamic law and that mercy was a central theme in the Islamic legal corpus.
He said even if it was argued that a certain Islamic law was based on a scholarly interpretation of the Quran and Sunnah (actions of the Prophet), its execution must not be devoid of “benefit, justice, mercy, and wisdom”.
He quoted a famous Quranic description of Prophet Muhammad as “mercy to the worlds”.
“From this, and many other source texts, it can be surmised that mercy is the all-pervasive objective of the shariah,” he said. “For this reason, Muslim jurists have, to all intents and purposes, used it synonymously with public interests. Since mercy is the aim of the shariah, it is evident that this cannot be achieved if the Muslims who enforce it are not imbued with this essential quality.”
He said the amendments tabled by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang in the Dewan Rakyat were clearly not in accordance with such a spirit.
“Surely, the rapacity to inflict punishments and the zeal to heighten them in all haste are not in sync with ‘the completion of God’s Grace’. Therefore, the amendments to Act 355 seeking to impose greater punishments are against the spirit of the shariah.”
If one were to consider the shariah as the embodiment of mercy and justice, he said, one would see hypocrisy in Hadi’s proposal to limit the scope of its jurisdiction to Muslims.
“By this premise, PAS and Hadi seek to victimise the Muslims for nothing but their political gains.
“They are also being hypocritical about the extent of their beliefs. This is due to the fact that the scope of the shariah, which is based upon justice, does not exclude non-Muslims and has never been limited to Muslims.”
He referred to a frequently cited feature of Islamic law – that of prioritising public interest – and said this showed that the shariah was not based only on the Islamic faith but also on the values common to those outside the faith.
“This means that laws are passed based upon public interest and common values not specific to the Islamic faith because the public interests are known rationally and customarily and are also known to non-Muslims.
“This boils down to the primary objective of the shariah, which is dispensing mercy.”
PAS leaders have scoffed at critics of its bill, saying it was the right of Muslims to govern their lives based on what the party claims are divine laws. The bill could be passed if there is unanimous support of Muslim MPs in the Dewan Rakyat. However, many Muslim MPs on both sides of the divide have expressed strong reservations.
Hadi’s bill was first tabled in May last year and was tabled again in November.
The amendments seek to increase maximum penalties for shariah offences to 30 years’ jail, a fine of RM100,000 and 100 strokes of the cane.
On Feb 18, thousands of PAS supporters gathered in the city centre in a day-long event to show support for the amendments.

Nuclear accident cover-up? Radioactive Iodine-131 detected across Europe


Nuclear accident cover-up? Radioactive Iodine-131 detected across Europe… no one knows why

Image: Nuclear accident cover-up? Radioactive Iodine-131 detected across Europe… no one knows why
(Natural News) Mysterious plumes of radioactive iodine-131, the same nuclear isotope seen during the Fukushima disaster, have suddenly started appearing all over Europe. And according to reports, nobody seems to know where they’re coming from — that, or authorities are choosing to deliberately keep the undisclosed source(s) out of public view.
Trace amounts of the highly damaging form of radiation, which is known to destroy the thyroid gland, have been found in at least seven European countries, including in Norway, Finland, the Czech Republic, Germany, France, and Spain. Such radiation typically comes from either nuclear energy plants or atomic bombs — and the latter presumably haven’t been set off anywhere recently.
According to The Sun, the source of the toxic particles appears to be somewhere in Eastern Europe, despite the majority of them having been identified in countries to the West and North. The only other source from which such particles could be emerging are certain medical devices, though for their spread to be so wide across so many different regions is highly unlikely.
Finland’s Radiation Safety Authority (STUK) says it also identified trace amounts of the radioactive isotopes cobalt-60, niobium-95, and cesium-134, all of which are also directly associated with nuclear processes. Investigations into the source of these particles are ongoing, and experts are insistent that the levels are so low that they do not pose a significant health risk to the public.
“The preliminary report states it (iodine-131) was first found during the week 2 of January 2017 in northern Norway,” reads a press release issued by the France-based Institute de Radioprotection et de Süreté Nucléaire (IRSN).

Norwegian nuclear officials claim informing public right away about radiation wasn’t necessary because levels were ‘low’

What’s strange about this radioactive presence throughout Europe is that its levels are seemingly so low as to be almost impossibly dispersed. One would think that having the same type of radiation detected in so many places at once would indicate much higher amounts of it, but experts insist that the levels are low enough as to be harmless.
The world heard plenty of this same narrative during and after the Fukushima disaster — and it is still the official story today, despite ongoing problems at the stricken plant that continue to harm Japan, the world’s oceans, and possibly even the West Coast of the U.S.— a majority of the world, essentially.
According to officials in Finland, the levels of radiation detected there were less than one-millionth of a Becquerel per cubic meter of air — not very much in terms of serious safety concerns. But as many Natural News readers are well aware, any amount of radiation is a health threat, and its source a pertinent area of concern.
“We do measure small amounts of radioactivity in air from time to time because we have very sensitive measuring equipment,” the head of Norway’s Radiation Protection Authority, Astrid Liland, told reporters when asked why it took so long to inform the public about the potential looming threat.
“The measurements at Svanhovd in January were very, very low. So were the measurements made in neighboring countries, like Finland. The levels raise no concern for humans or the environment. Therefore, we believe this had no news value.”
Ironically, Norway’s radiation levels were higher than in Finland, and yet Finnish nuclear officials were quick to issue a public statement out of precaution. Like Norway and France, however, Finland insists that radiation levels are far lower than what can have “any effect” on human health.
There are nuclear plants located in Finland, Sweden, and Russia where the nuclear particles in question could have emerged. Investigators are working to trace where they came from as quickly as possible.

How Google just became FAKE SEARCH by blacklisting independent journalism

Beyond fake news… How Google just became FAKE SEARCH by blacklisting independent journalism

(Natural News) You’ve already heard about FAKE NEWS, the mainstream media’s repeated fabrication of false facts portrayed as real. Who can forget the Washington Post’s ridiculous fabrication of a “Russian conspiracy theory” that claimed Natural News and 200 other independent websites were secretly run by the Kremlin?
In just the last 10 days, in fact, five major fake news stories about Russia were pushed out by the corporate-run media in the United States, only to be completely discredited by real facts.
Now, Google, which aggregates fake news via its “Google News” service, has decided to up the ante and go all in for FAKE SEARCH.
Earlier today, Google delisted all 140,000+ pages of NaturalNews.com from its search engine, instantly wiping out a treasure trove of truly lifesaving knowledge about disease prevention, nutritional therapies, avoidance of toxins and the dangers of chemical medications (among other topics that also include opinion pieces, political analysis, health warnings and more).
Not surprisingly, every fake news page of the Washington Post, CNN and New York Times remains prominently ranked in Google’s search index, despite the irrefutable fact that all three news organizations now routinely fabricate fake news designed to discredit or destroy President Trump.
According to the mainstream media, any news that harms Trump is REAL news, while any news that helps Trump is FAKE news:

Google becomes “FAKE SEARCH” by eliminating Natural News from public view

Now, Google has become “fake search,” deliberately silencing NaturalNews.com content on important issues such as mercury in vaccines, the mammogram scams of the cancer industry, the criminal racketeering of Big Pharma and the toxic effects of herbicides and pesticides. Now, users of Google no longer see the “natural” side of the debate on these issues and are, instead, subjected to the barrage of official disinformation regurgitated by corporate-infiltrated news fakers that really function as nothing more than corporate P.R. fronts.
Tens of millions of people will be negatively impacted each month by Google’s blacklisting of NaturalNews.com content, denied the choice to view articles that could help them prevent cancer, avoid a medical scam or learn something amazing about superfoods and healthy eating.
But it’s actually far worse than just that: Google censored NaturalNews.com via a human decision, not an algorithm. This means that some “decision maker” at Google can, based on nothing more than their own opinion, banish any website they choose with the flick of a switch.
In this way, Google has raised digital book burning to a whole new level of efficiency only dreamed of by fascists of the Third Reich. Now, an entire library of human knowledge can be obliterated in an instant, with no justification, no warning and no recourse. By blacklisting all NaturalNews.com content, Google has just proven it is a de facto Orwellian Ministry of Truth which shall decide the fate of entire organizations based on nothing more than the internalized hatred, bigotry, biases or corruption of its own employees.

Google: Logic is an enemy and truth is a menace

The war against Natural News, you see, is not simply a war against our articles. It is a war against reason, public discourse and debate. What the egomaniacal technocratic globalists have now come to realize is that they cannot win any legitimate debate on the facts… so they have to censor real facts while inventing their own false facts to take their place.
Thus, dissenting views must be silenced. Any debate must be crushed from the outset. Only “official” science must be allowed, and it shall be worshiped as a dogma, with no questions or criticisms tolerated whatsoever.
This is now the new world of Google, a totalitarian info-monopoly that has just declared itself to be FAKE SEARCH.
Consider for a moment the simple but jaw-dropping realization that when you use Google, you can no longer trust the search results to be honest, for they may be lacking vast libraries of knowledge and know-how that some Google technocrat decided to eliminate for his or her own personal reasons… none of which need be explained to anyone or disclosed to the search user. After all, Google search results never tell you which pages they’ve deliberately eliminated from the results they’re showing you, do they?
Google has become the arbiter of “truth” and in doing so, it has really become a tower of LIES. Hence the term “Fake Search.”

Google violates both the public trust and anti-trust laws

This has all reached the level where the Trump administration clearly needs to alert the FTC to the anti-trust violations of Google, a monopolistic monster of disinformation that willfully censors entire websites for secret reasons that it need not explain to anyone. This is the very definition of anti-trust activity, and all of society suffers as a result.
We have now entered the era of extreme censorship against the most important independent voices in our society — the only ones capable of engaging in honest journalism without the twisted bias of corporate or government influence. If the independent media is to be silenced, then who will keep the fakestream media honest? Who will counter the propaganda of the CDC’s bogus vaccine science? Who will call out political corruption and financial fraud?
The corporate-controlled media is now populated by obedient prostitutes who have no ability to question anything in the status quo (without losing their jobs). It is only the independent media that can now do the job of the free press — and it is that same independent media that’s now being systematically marginalized by Google through a deliberate campaign of free speech suppression.
I can’t help but think this is all being rolled out as a prelude to a very large planned attack, false flag or attempted coup event, making sure that the independent media’s coverage of the upcoming event will be silenced so that the fake news CNN narrative can dominate. After all, as an MSNBC anchor just admitted on live TV, “Our job is to control exactly what people think.”
It seems that’s also Google’s job now, too.

Two Vitamin C Tablets Saves Lives

Two Vitamin C Tablets Every Day Could Save 200,000 Lives Every Year

Orthomolecular Medicine News Service
(OMNS, Nov 22, 2011) New research has reported that risk of heart failure decreases with increasing blood levels of vitamin C [1]. Persons with the lowest plasma levels of ascorbate had the highest risk of heart failure, and persons with the highest levels of vitamin C had the lowest risk of heart failure.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) there are about 600,000 deaths from heart disease each year. [2] This is an enormous number. The definition of heart failure used by the study authors was on the basis of drugs prescribed, which would include all forms of heart disease that cause death. This agrees well with the CDC definition.
Specifically, the study found that each 20 micromole/liter (μmol/L) increase in plasma vitamin C was associated with a 9% reduction in death from heart failure. That works out to 54,000 fewer deaths from heart failure for each increase in 20 μmol/L plasma vitamin C. If everyone took high enough doses of vitamin C to reach the highest quartile (80 μmol/L), that would work out to approximately 216,000 fewer deaths per year. Just from taking vitamin C.
What is Heart Failure?
The heart muscle fails for many reasons. As we get older, it weakens and may not get enough nutrients to keep it healthy. A severe heart attack, that does not kill the patient but has caused significant damage to the heart muscle, may leave the heart in a very weakened state. Long standing or acute high blood pressure can put a massive strain on the heart and cause it to fail. An abnormal beating of the heart such as a very fast heart rate, an irregular beat or a lot of missed beats will result in a less effective pumping and eventual failure. Anemia will make the heart pump harder and faster in an attempt to deliver enough oxygen to the organs. The valves in the heart which direct blood flow are made up of an important fibrous strengthening tissue called collagen. Weakness or tearing of these valves can cause the blood to flow backwards, making the heart pump very inefficiently and eventually causing it to fail. When the heart muscle begins to fail, there is a buildup of carbon dioxide and waste products, resulting in weakening of the kidneys and liver. Eventually, fluid builds up in all the organs and the person presents with severe fatigue, shortness of breath (from fluid in the lungs) and swelling of the ankles.
Viruses and other microorganisms can attack the heart and weaken the heart muscle cells permanently by causing viral myocarditis. As the heart muscle cells get older they may require more energy to work and a greater level of protection from free radical damage. Nutrients such as magnesium, orotic acid, coenzyme Q10, acetyl L-Carnitine, and others may be required. Toxins, chemotherapeutic drugs, alcohol and deficiencies of some nutrients such as selenium may cause the heart to increase the size of its cells to compensate for the weakness. An enlargement of the heart muscle is called cardiomyopathy. These hearts are much more likely to fail.
Medical treatment of cardiac failure uses drugs that open the arteries, reduce blood pressure, and force the excessive fluid out of the body (diuretics). Drugs known as ACE Inhibitors improve quality of life and survival. Diet, fluid and salt restriction, and tolerable exercise are essential. For the most severe cases, a heart transplant may be required. However, many of these treatments have significant side effects. For example, treatment with diuretics to remove excess fluid will tend to lower the plasma vitamin C level and exacerbate the causes of cardiac failure.
How Much Vitamin C is Needed?
It takes less vitamin C than you may have thought. To achieve a plasma level of 80 μmol/L, and thereby reduce deaths by 216,000 per year, requires a daily dosage of about 500 mg of vitamin C. This is only one or two tablets per day, costing less than ten cents.
3,000 to 8,000 mg/day, in continued divided doses, can achieve a plasma level twice as high (160 μmol/L). This much C could save an additional 216,000 lives as it is an additional 80 μmol/L, assuming the relationship holds.
We can go still higher, and without intravenous administration. 1,000 mg of oral vitamin C per hour for 12 hours (12,000 mg/day) will result in a plasma level of about 240 μmol/L. A single 5,000 milligram dose might take you to a peak of 240 μmol/L, but only for about 2-4 hours after the intake. That is why the dosage needs to be spread out: better absorption, gradual excretion, higher plasma levels . . . and better results.
Conclusion:
Optimizing vitamin C intake optimizes the health of a person taking it. This includes persons with potentially life-threatening disorders. It is a simple, cheap, effective, and safe therapy. Vitamin C is no longer a “controversial” therapy. It is an ignored therapy. It is time for the medical profession to fully awaken to what this recent study confirms: higher vitamin C intakes mean less heart failure. That means that higher vitamin C intakes mean fewer deaths. 200,000 per year fewer.
With just two vitamin C tablets per day.

C4: Madinah not qualified to be auditor-general

C4: Madinah not qualified to be auditor-general

 
Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism says Madinah Mohamad has zero auditing experience.
Cynthia-Gabrie
PETALING JAYA: The Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) has questioned the decision to appoint Madinah Mohamad as auditor-general, highlighting her lack of auditing experience.
C4 said the role of auditor-general must be filled by someone with the specific knowledge and capability, skills and practical experience in key areas related to auditing, accounting and financial management.
Given this, the NGO said it was “baffled” by the choice of Madinah, who “clearly does not meet the above criteria and requirements”.
“Madinah may have the qualifications suitable for other posts, but most glaringly she has no auditing experience.
 
“What were the process and consideration taken by Prime Minister Najib Razak in recommending her appointment? We ask for an explanation in this regard,” C4 executive director Cynthia Gabriel said in a statement today.
Madinah, who was secretary-general of the education ministry until she went on mandatory retirement from September last year, will take over from Ambrin Buang whose tenure as auditor-general expires today.
Chief Secretary to the Government Ali Hamsa said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V had consented to Madinah’s appointment upon the advice of the prime minister and following consultation with the Conference of Rulers in accordance with Clause (1) Article 105 of the Federal Constitution.
Madinah, 60, holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Political Science from Universiti Sains Malaysia as well as a Master of Science in human resource development and a doctorate in human resource management from Universiti Putra Malaysia.
In May 2013, she was transferred to the education ministry from the science, technology and innovation ministry, where she was also the secretary-general. She has been with the civil service for the past 35 years.
Gabriel said Madinah’s appointment “greatly worried” C4, and called for the Auditor-General’s Office to be independent and report directly to Parliament to ensure its independence and credibility.
Is Najib so desperate to get an unqualified person to fill a TOP Post such as the Auditor-General? Or he in need of a stooge to do as he says, esp. with the 1MDB and SRC cases. We have seen him appointing such a man for the Attorney-General post and now this!!!
