Is South Africa under Muslim rule?

The following comes from a lecture delivered by Faizal Dawjee to the Muslim Institute in London. See "Muslims in anti-Apartheid" for the full article.

Nelson Mandela at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, 11 July 1997 said: “I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to those South African Muslims who died while in detention because of their resistance to apartheid; Babla Saloojee; Imam Haron; Ahmed Timol; and Dr Hussein Haffejee. They represent the involvement of the Muslim community in the struggle for justice and freedom, as does the presence of Muslims as Cabinet Ministers and in the highest office of our judiciary, in the new democratic political dispensation of our country.”

Muslims constitute just more than 1% of the total population of South Africa.  Notwithstanding the small percentage of Muslims it has been observed that the Muslim influence is disproportionate to their small numbers. But what were the conditions that have made it possible for Muslims to obtain such an influential position in post-Apartheid South Africa? And more importantly what implications if any, has this had on Muslim identities in post-Apartheid South Africa.

Who has been fuelling the hate against SA farmers?

Shortly after becoming Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale in the Zuma administration, Tokyo Sexwale said

Protests are Mbeki’s fault, says Sexwale
Moipone Malefane 25 July 2009

‘(The) housing (department) has built 2.8 million houses. Housing is not a problem but poverty is’

Sexwale said he visited Diepsloot informal settlement (in Gauteng) last week. “Most (of the people there) were clear that they did not want houses.”

There are 2000 informal settlements in the country and Sexwale said he intended to visit all of them.

But he said human settlement was about more than housing. “The crisis now is about urbanisation, a challenge that was at some point going to catch up with the new South Africa. All metropolitan areas have had an influx of people looking for wealth.”

He explained that, as was the case worldwide, many people had left rural areas and settled in places where there was a lack of basic services because they wanted to live in urban areas and look for work.

Sexwale said the problem had been compounded by the global recession, when the economy needed 6% growth.

“The global downturn has put more pressure on us.”
The above was clearly in defence of Jacob Zuma, while blaming problems at the time on Thabo Mbeki

A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE - GRANTHAM: We're Headed For A Disaster Of Biblical Proportions

GRANTHAM: We're Headed For A Disaster Of Biblical Proportions
Henry Blodget | Nov. 21, 2012

Last year, legendary investor Jeremy Grantham of GMO published a treatise on exploding commodity prices.

He also offered a startlingly depressing outlook for the future of humanity.

Grantham believes the world has undergone a permanent "paradigm shift" in which the number of people on Earth has finally and permanently outstripped the planet's ability to support us.

The phenomenon of ever-more humans using a finite supply of natural resources cannot continue forever, Grantham says--and the prices of metals, hydrocarbons (oil), and food are now beginning to reflect that.

Grantham believes that the planet can only sustainably support about 1.5 billion humans, versus the 7 billion on Earth right now (heading to 10-12 billion). For all of history except the last 200 years, the human population has been controlled via the limits of the food supply. Grantham thinks that, eventually, the same force will come into play again.

The hope of the optimists, of course, is that science will find a solution to this problem, the way it has for the past 150 years.

Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness - colonialization and racism

Applying Theory to Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is among the most studied, debated, contested, and theorized works of Western literature. While some critics feel it offers a scathing attack on colonialist ideology, others feel the novel celebrates and defends colonialization and racism. The novel, however, can be approached, quite readily, from virtually all theoretical approaches.

A number of theorists have studied the novel through the perspective of post-colonial theory and have contended, often in response to or in conversation with other post-colonial theorists, that it critiques, celebrates, and even reconciles Europe’s colonialization activities throughout Africa in the 19 th century.

Handvol gruis uit die Hantam

Deur C. Louis Leipoldt

’n Handvol gruis uit die Hantam –
My liewe, lekker Hantam-wyk!
’n Handvol gruis en gedroogde blare,
Waboom-blare, ghnarrabos-blare!
Arm was ek gister, en nou is ek ryk.

Arm in herinnering, arm in verbeelding,
Arm in onthou van die vroeër jare
Deurgebring in die Hantam-wyk.
’n Handvol gras en gedroogde blare
Maak my, wat arm was, koning-ryk –

Ryk in herinnering, ryk in verbeelding,
Ryk in onthou van die vroeër tyd
Toe die Hantam-wêreld al die wêreld
Vir my was in die vroeër tyd.
’n Handvol gruis en gedroogde blare
Vertel so veel van die wonderjare
In my liewe lekker Hantam-wyk –
Waboom-blare, ghnarrabos-blare –
Arm eergister en nou skatryk!

Poisoned! What to do when your dog is poisoned by criminals


What to do when your dog is poisoned by criminals

This guide dedicated to the memory of Misha, who died at the hands of criminals who poisoned him on the 8th of August, 2011, at the age of 14 months.

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

The research I was doing for this document was tested when the same criminals returned a month later to complete a job interrupted. Thankfully, we were able to save Ludwig, the Blood Hound, without any complications.

I sincerely hope that this guide will help others save their dogs when the unthinkable happens.

Sunday, 4 November 2012



It seems that a lot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a
situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…

FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

Where did we in SA go wrong

There were good parties, but sadly South Africans had to chose the worst of the worst to run SA.

New Political Party Launched 
By Frans Pienaar


A new addition to the South African political arena, the United Federal Party, has been launched in Johannesburg.

Born out of severe discontent with "the pandemonium and insecurity prevailing in the country... the UFP is a multiracial centrist multipurpose type organisation," its executive council spokesman Barry Nilsson told a news conference on Friday.

Chaired by former SABC television presenter Justice Tsungu -- who failed to attend the Press conference -- the nine-member executive council includes several businessmen, a veterinary surgeon, a manpower consultant and a retired couple.
