UK: "Disrespectful, Racist" councillor walks out over Muslim prayer….

A CITY councillor has been accused of disrespect after walking out of a meeting – because a Muslim Imam read a prayer.

Tory councillor Malcolm Hey left the council chamber immediately after a Christian prayer, just before Resident Alim, Sheikh Fazle Abbas Datoo, began an address to yesterday’s full meeting of Portsmouth City Council.

He returned when the prayer had finished and remained for the rest of the meeting.

He said: ‘I did so because we are a traditionally Christian country, so Christian prayers are read as a matter of tradition. But I don’t feel it’s appropriate for Muslim prayers to be said, as I don’t feel we worship the same God as Muslims, so I left.’

But other councillors, including the city’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Paula Riches, who invited the Imam to read to the council, objected to Cllr Hey’s actions.

Cllr Riches said: ‘It’s very disrespectful and I will tell him so. He objected by letter to the idea but it’s very disappointing he chose to do this.’

Here’s an example of how and what Muslims pray:

Hamas imam: “Please, Allah, kill all the Jews”

Cllr Hey, a Cosham councillor who is an openly devout Christian, said his action was not racially motivated.

But he is also a member of the city council’s standing advisory group on religious education, which aims to unite faith groups across the city.

Yasin Rahim, director of interfaith at Wessex Jamaat, said: ‘The Muslim community here is mature. We aren’t angry, we just regard this as a host who doesn’t know how to behave towards his guest. It’s a real shame. But we invite him to come to read a Christian prayer to Muslims at one of our prayer meetings. That way, he can experience what interaction between faiths can do.’

The Imam was invited to the meeting after contributing a prayer to Portsmouth’s remembrance service last November.

His prayer, which he read in Arabic and English, included the words: ‘Adorn us with the qualities of the righteous. And clothe us with the beauty of those who guard against displeasing You. And issue from our hands good to the people, O Lord. Make us speak with righteousness.’

He explained: ‘This was a chance to help with cultural integration. We have people of all faiths in Portsmouth, and we can understand each other better if we understand one another’s religious beliefs. It was an honour to be able to read the prayer to the council. I am sorry a councillor walked out.’

Cllr Riches hopes to be able to invite Catholic and Buddhist religious leaders to read prayers at subsequent meetings.

But Cllr Hey said: ‘I will leave for prayers by Buddhists or Hindus. They don’t worship the same God as us. I would stay for a Catholic or Jewish prayer, because they do.’

    This is a Christian perspective.
    From a Christian perspective, the Allah of Islam is not the same as the God of the Bible.
    And most assuredly opposed to the God of the New Testament.
    No Christian has to say that he worships the Allah of Islam. The scriptures prove time and time again that the two gods are different.
    Muslims really do worship another God.
    Islam is profane.
    Mohammed is a false prophet.
    Christians worship, they do not submit.
    And the truth hurts.

  2. When you read the Bible, there is a obvious coincidence that the entity Satan is the sworn enemy of the Jews because of their eternal covenant with God Almighty through Abraham, that every covenant between man and God would come through them. Muhammad’s “revelation” came from a entity named “Saraphael” [later was changed to Gabriel] and this name is most notably mentioned in the apocryphal writings of Enoch…as one of the original fallen angels. The name means “fiery serpent” btw.

    It doesn’t take much thought to connect the dots. The New Testament “Antichrist” spirit & ultimately the singular person is a “supplanter”…opposes the real and offers the substitute for the original. Again, Muslims are trying so hard to be the Jews, while hating them passionately at the same time. You could go on and on with the parallels from Biblical prophecy when you correctly understand that all prophecies are relative to the Jews & Israel.

    Muslims know very well that ‘al-Ilha’, the pagan moon god of the ancient desert Arabs, is nothing like the G-d of Christians or Jews:

    If that’s true, then why are Muslims so desperate to hear Christians say that “we worship the same God”?
    I’ve noted that when you point up the differences between God and the Muslim Allah, many Muslims, particularly those in academia, become hysterical.
    I think the reason they want Christians to affect the Muslim perspective that the two deities are the same is to facilitate submission.
    After all, if you believe that Allah is the same as the Trinity, then you haven’t sacrificed anything of your identity if you convert to Islam.
    To believe that they are the same, is, in effect, submission to Allah.

    1. “If that’s true, then why are Muslims so desperate to hear Christians say that “we worship the same God”?”

      War is deceit, said Muhammad, profit of Islam.

      “The chief weapon in the quiver of all Islamist expansionist movements, is the absolute necessity to keep victims largely unaware of the actual theology plotting their demise. To complete this deception, a large body of ‘moderates’ continue to spew such ridiculous claims as “Islam means Peace” thereby keeping non-Muslims from actually reading the Qur’an, the Sira, the Hadith, or actually looking into the past 1400 years of history. Islamists also deny or dismiss the concept of ‘abrogation’, which is the universal intra-Islamic method of replacing slightly more tolerable aspects of the religion in favor of more violent demands for Muslims to slay and subdue infidels”

      The “three great religions” and the “3 Abrahamic faiths” are hogwash. There is only one ‘great religion’ for Muslims and that is Islam. Islam makes the other two redundant.

      The concept is one of usurpery. Replacement theology.

      Mohammedans have no use for Moses, Abraham or any other biblical prophets.

      Issa, Muhammad’s perverted Jesus, is a fallen angel, a diabolical figure out for revenge and destruction, who will return to ‘kill the swine, abolish the Jiziya and break the cross”.

      So much for ‘interfaith dialogue’.

    And this is the very essence of Islam.

  5. Of the “three great Abrahamic faiths”, which do the left / greens / marxists / elites acknowledge and serve or work with?

    By their fruits you will know them.

  6. Well done Tory councillor Malcolm Hey UK is a christian country and it has to be taken back from these islamic squatters.

  7. There are two great biblical religions Judaism and Christianity and one imperialistic Arabic religion called Islam which has been trying to claim Abraham as it own.

  8. The Councillor had every right not to stay to hear a Muslim prayer. I agree that Islam’s god is not the Christian God.
