A study by of the Centre for Migration Policy Research at Swansea University shows that thousands of Britons are converting to Islam every year "“ with more women becoming Muslims than men.
The research suggests that the numbers converting to the religion has doubled by 2010 from the 60,669 converts in 2001.
An enormous mosque could be built next to the Olympics site in Newham, East London, if a radical Islamist sect wins their planning appeal this week. The Tablighi Jamaat sect has been using the site as a mosque without planning permission for four years. They want to build a mega-mosque on the site with a capacity for 12,000 people.

Yesterday, the Channel Five programme The Wright Stuff, presented by Matthew Wright, had a discussion about the case of Peter and Hazelmary Bull in which he abused and misrepresented the Christian faith.Ã‚Â There was no-one on the panel to put a contrary case as Wright sneered at the Old Testament and set about pontificating.Ã‚Â I have written about itÃ‚Â HERE where there is an easy link to see the programme.

"You are what you eat" - defending our right to non-sharia food
- Halal meat is from an animal killed and prepared in accordance with sharia, including Islamic prayer over the meat by a Muslim butcher. This meat is being sold at some of Britain's favourite supermarkets and is routinely served at some of Britain's most popular sporting venues, pubs, schools and hospitals, without the public's knowledge. The use of halal meat in the UK is increasing so fast that already most of the imported lamb on our shelves is halal.
- Halal, which means "˜permitted', also covers travel, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, finance and other areas.
- The spread of halal is often part of the commitment to Islamic mission (dawa) and the Islamisation of non-Muslim societies. The imposition of sharia practices on non-Muslims may be interpreted as an act of Islamic supremacy.

Yesterday Monica and I spent a day at the Greenbelt Christian Arts festival, our first visit for some 20 years. It was interesting and challenging, but all for the wrong reasons. For me it vindicated my choice of subjects to write about, but for the 20,000 or so Christians - particularly the young and vulnerable - I fear for them, for the teaching and propaganda they received over the 4 day event. Firstly, propaganda. Greenbelt has decided to target Israel, a decision made around 3 years ago, and to highlight the plight of the Palestinians living in Gaza. That's fair enough, if a balanced view is given and their views are presented sensitively in Christian love. They decided instead to go all-out, all-guns-blazing, with a sustained attack on Israel through every way possible - talks, exhibition displays, visual aids even drama. The following little drama greeted everyone entering the field on Sunday morning for a communion service ...

Recently New Zealand's national press was awash with a story about a disabled, wheel chair bound man who had given his life savings to an Elim Church. An appeal to the Elim church's pastor, by the management of the man's hospital care facility, fell on deaf ears. The witness to the world in general was of a rapacious church willing to take all the money it could get from a man they knew to be disabled and obviously in more need of the money than the Elim church. Truth Watch remonstrated directly with the pastor and also sent the following letter to each member of the Elim movement's national board. Meantime the church, smarting under the unwanted limelight, returned the bulk of the poor man's money, but the damage had been done. The best response we could get from the Elim Board was a stilted, ad hominen response, from the board's chair; "You guys must live sad lives". Of course, we are sad, but not in the sense intended by the Chair. Everytime the Gospel of Jesus Christ is trampled in the mud of church sponsored greed, we weep.
John Partington's New Strategy To Rescue The Declining British Assemblies of God
A defective product line driving an enterprise towards bankruptcy must be redesigned and not put into a new box with new packaging. Merchandising the same old junk that caused the crisis to begin with by adopting a new marketing strategy or a new company re-organization or a new catalog or a new website will not solve anything. Indeed, it cannot. Every businessman, marketing consultant, and corporate executive knows this. Unfortunately modern Pentecostal theocrats do not.
