As most of you are aware by now there will be a vote to decide will the UK stay in the EU or will the UK leave the EU. No doubt there will be columns of info for and against in the papers, television etc..

Just to start the ball rolling i have put a link to an article on the BREXIT you might find interesting, plus some of the comments and links provided might be of interest.

Probably the best speech no one heard

Probably the best speech a major world leader as made, but one that as been totally ignored by western MSM. I thought in the light of Russias intervention [aid to Assad] in Syria. Hopefully before the MSM starts to build up the propaganda against Mr Putin it might be worth while to post a summary of a speech that Mr Putin gave in Sochi in October 2014 [yes 2014, not 15]

Which order do you read the Quran

I have a new copy of the Quran, a new translation by M. A. S. Abdel Aleem, in the Oxford World Classics series.

I have also found a site that lays down the Chronological Order that the Surahs were revealed. Has it differs from the order Surahs are placed in the Quran. In order to gain a better understanding of the Quran woluld it be alright to use this order?

Would welcome any comments.

[Indeed it would be interesting to know what your answer would be for solving the violence between people in Syria/Iraq or indeed the violence that is happening in Nigeria. Or for that matter how the people of planet earth can get along, be they Muslim, Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist or indeed of no interest in religion whatsoever, but just want to live their lives in their own way?]

I received the reply
