Lindsey Van Gele, a candidate for the Miss Belgium contest 2012, has reportedly converted to Islam after marrying Mamoutou N’Diaye, a midfielder for Zulte Waregem, a Belgian football team.

Van Gele now calls herself “Aisha,” has given up alcohol and pork, and no longer wears short skirts. She refuses to show her body uncovered in events such as the Gala Golden Shoe.

This week, Lindsey was a guest on the show “Komen Eten Vier” with other women and girlfriends of Belgian footballers.

“I became a Muslim when Mamoutou asked for my hand. A civil marriage was not enough for me. Moreover, I wanted to support my conversion,” she said in Het Laatste Nieuws.

I would have loved to join you today on this noble cause to demand Israel stop its aggression against a defenceless people.

• Israel has been violating international law for decades, committing war crimes and crimes against humanity – with complete impunity.

• Defenceless women, children even the disabled and the sick in hospitals are massacred everyday – with no consequences for Israel at all.

• This is not a war against Hamas or terrorists – it is the genocide of a people. This is not a conflict between equals – it is brutal aggression by an occupation army against a people living under a total blockade and siege.

• The blockade and siege of Gaza must be lifted now – the blockade is illegal collective punishment by a cruel occupier that is Israel.

• I ask our European and world leaders, how many more war crimes must

Israel commit; and how many more women and children must it kill with the bombs you sold Israel; before you condemn them as war crimes?

• I ask the UN Secretary General Mr Ban Ki Moon – even after Israel bombs your UN school sheltering women and children, why do you not have the courage to condemn it as a war crime?

• I call on our European governments and the UN to impose sanctions on Israel.

Free Palestine!

Chelsea Muslim Footballer Builds Mosque

Demba-Ba

LONDON – Senegal national team and Chelsea Muslim striker Demba Ba has offered money necessary to fund the construction of a mosque in his parents’ hometown in Senegal.

“Being a Muslim is more important than me being a footballer,” he was quoted as saying in an interview with the Independent by sen24heures website reported on Friday, May 9.

“A good Muslim is a good person, so I try to be a good person,” he added.

Being a devout Muslim, the Chelsea star usually celebrates his goal to performing prostration. Ba is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League side Chelsea and the Senegal national team.

It is also known that he was brought up in a religious home.

The news about his contribution to fund a new mosque hit the Senegalese media last week.

The new mosque is expected to be inaugurated within the coming weeks.

Ba is one of 40 other Muslim stars in the English Premier league.

The Muslim existence on English football pitches dated back to 1992 Tottenham’s Spanish midfielder Nayim was the only Muslim player in the league.

Seeking new talented players for the league, scouts brought new players from West Africa and Paris to become global stars.

The growing influx of Muslim players has been fuelled by the internationalization of football.

Ba’s homeland, Senegal, is a country in West Africa where Islam is the predominant religion. Nearly 90 percent of the country’s population is estimated to be Muslim.
