After Sandy, A New Storm May Hit Mid-Atlantic And New England

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

The storm will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

It is not a big storm like Hurricane Sandy but it may cause more problems for both New York and New Jersey.

Al-Arqam’s Shadow Cabinet

Today NST reports on the banned Al-Arqam movement’s “shadow cabinet”.

Al-Arqam was decreed a deviant sect in 1994 by the National Fatwa Council after it was found to have practised Aurad Muhammadiah teachings which was described as misleading Muslims from the true Islamic beliefs.

There are 41 ministries in the “shadow cabinet” including:

  •  the ministry of the netherworld (kementerian alam ghaib)

  •  the ministries of true souls and sects (roh suci dan tariqat)

  • the ministry of death and the hereafter (kematian dan akhirat)

  • the ministry of family and holy sex (keluarga dan seks suci)

Khatijah Am had assumed the position as their prime minister and claimed that she received direct orders from her late husband, the founder of Al-Arqam, Ashaari Muhammad.

Al-Arqam followers believe that Ashaari Muhammad is still leading them.

NST also reports that Khatijah lived in a mansion called RSA Palace in Mecca which she rented for 340,000 riyal (RM 276,000) a year.

She had been holding monthly meetings with “top leaders” of the sect in Malaysia via video conferencing.

PKR’s Dr. Badrulamin Detained At Al-Arqam Concert; Is He Involved With The Banned Sect.?

Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) raided an Al-Arqam concert at Bandar Country Home in Rawang at about 10 pm last night.

The special concert was to celebrate the 75th birthday of Al-Arqam founder, Ashaari Muhammad or popularly known as Abuya who died in 2010.

Utusan reported that a senior Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leader, Dr. Badrulamin Bahron who was the guest of honour at the concert, was one of the people detained by JAIS. 

NST reported that more than 20 Al-Arqam followers were detained under Section 12C of the Selangor Syariah Criminal Enactment for seeking to revive the banned Al-Arqam sect.

I wonder why Dr. Badrulamin was the guest of honour at the concert; does he has any connection with the group or is he one of their supporters?

Photos: Venice’s Worst Flood In Two Years

On Thursday November 1, 2012 Venice was flooded again.

It was Venice’s worst flood in 2 years.

The median level of the Adriatic Sea swelled to about 1.4 meters (1.5 yards) above normal.

That caused water from the lagoon to flow into St. Mark’s Square and Venice’s many narrow alleyways.

It was very bad and dangerous because in some places, people cannot see where canals ended and sidewalks began.

High tides have flooded Venice, leading Venetians and tourists to don high boots and use wooden walkways to cross St. Mark’s Square and other areas under water. Flooding is common this time of year and Thursday’s level that reached a peak of 55 inches (140 centimeters) was below the 63 inches (160 centimeters) recorded four years ago in the worst flooding in decades.
