Over 50 international footballers have have joined anti-apartheid activists to urge European football’s governing body, UEFA to cancel the under-21 Euro championships in Israel, scheduled for next month. Activists say that UEFA would be complicit in whitewashing Israel’s criminal activities if it allows Tel Aviv to host the football tournament.
Muslim groups in the UK have reported a rising level of Islamophobic hate crime, after a British soldier was killed in London by two young men. Although British Muslim leaders have strongly condemned the murder, they say their community is being targeted for a crime they were not part of. Press TV’s Hassan Alkatib was at the scene of the incident and shows how media hype inflamed the situation.
The Islamic Centre of England commissioned Hassan Alkatib to put together an educational documentary on Islam and Islamic beliefs. Script by Sheikh Bahmanpour.
The film explores aspects of Islamic creed; such as the oneness of God (Tawhid); the two attestations or declaration of faith (Shahadatayn); the miraculous Quran; the prophethood of Muhammed, the final messenger of God; other prophets in Islam, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus; and life after death. The film also touches upon other areas; such as conversion to Islam; Sunni and Shia; Science in Islam; and Islamic civlisation.
Brian Haw, a peace campaigner, staged the longest protest outside the British Houses of Parliament. His campaign started in June 2001 in protest over the criminal sanctions on Iraq that led to the deaths of half a million children.
His activism became ever more important after 9/11, as Bush and Blair launched wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. The police and authorities continuously harrassed Brian and made various attempts to remove and restrict him.
In 2011, he spent six months in hospital and later died of lung cancer. One year after his death, filmmaker Hassan Alkatib, looks back at his amazing achievement and documents his story with exclusive never-seen-before footage of his life in Parliament Square. Watch the Trailer
