Islamic agenda in Birmingham, a spat in the Cabinet and a serious Trojan Horse.
Serious issues were raised about a serious hidden Islamic agenda for schools in Birmingham as long ago as 2010; it has taken a long time for this issue to be more fully aired, perhaps in part because people were afraid of appearing Isalm-ophobic. Do take the time to watch this important piece Nick Robinson presented on BBC news two evenings ago.
Let’s pray for the (really rather nasty) spat between Theresa May and Michael Gove to be more than papered over; especially as the publishing of the report next week on the Trojan Horse issue in Birmingham schools is likely to send shock waves in all directions concerning this issue we have long been aware was brewing. (Google ‘Trojan Horse’, ‘Islam’ and ‘Birmingham’ for more information).
As smart phones get smarter, so too, unfortunately, do criminals who are dedicated in their efforts to hack into them and cause identity theft, computer lockdowns, ransom threats and cyber chaos. We have referred to these issues in the past as being extremely important to pray about.
The first confirmed case of ransomware that encrypts files held by Android devices has now been reported, Called Simplelocker this targets SD cards slotted into tablets and handsets, electronically scrambling certain types of files on them before demanding cash to decrypt the data. This particular threat is in its infancy, but this is such a huge issue that we need to be over the horizon in prayer.
