Meet the modern-day freedom fighter who devotes his life to ending the persecution that Jewish people sadly still receive in today’s society. Michael English is a 36-year-old self-described as “Prophet of God” from Salford, Manchester. Michael is also quite a “handy-lad” as he has been a professional bare-knuckle and eventually licensed boxer since his teens with over 100 professional fights and impressively only 3 losses ( as the saying goes – you can’t win them all). Michael was an unlicensed boxer who fought professionals before then himself turning pro in 2010 with Oliver Harrison (the man famously behind Amir Khans’ rise to fame). Sadly Oliver Harrison died of cancer in 2019 but he will always be in Michaels thoughts and prayers. Michael is the epitome of the wrong person to be picking arguments with over his religious beliefs, he now solely boxes for charitable events – another string to his bow.
Michael’s mother’s side of the family was from a Jewish background (much like myself) and in 2010 Michael was blessed with a dream of the “Star Prophecy”, it was from that day forward Michael has devoted his life to campaigning for the rights of his fellow Jewish people, he has even had the iconic Star of David tattooed on his face to pledge his allegiance to Judaism and has become a fully ordained Rabbi – he is highly acknowledged in the holy land of Israel.

Over the years Michael has been no stranger to conflict as many videos on YouTube will show him confronting anti-Israel racists at rallies up and down the country, however, in his heart, he is a peaceful man and it cannot be said that he “goes out looking for trouble” in fact it is quite the opposite as many videos will show him giving blessings to the racists and bigots that confront him as he marches on the streets with the Israeli flag draped across his shoulders.
Throughout the years Michael has called out anti-zionists, racists and all those that post-inflammatory comments against Israel and the people of Israel alike. Most recently on the 31st March 2021, Michael played a pivotal role in the prosecution of Alison Chabloz; a 59-year old woman from London who was found guilty of sending and having cause to send an offensive, indecent, obscene, menacing message under the Communications Act. Her hate-fuelled derogatory speech online was targeted towards Jewish people and has confessed to believing in and stating many evil comments such as; “Hitler was right” and labelled Auschwitz a “theme park”, Chabloz also breached conditions of suspended sentences for prior similar offences (its obvious that monsters like Chabloz will never learn).
It is a fact that there aren’t many people quite like Michael English left these days, he has visited the holy land of Israel and is highly regarded amongst fellow Jewish citizens living there as a prophet of God, many in Israel long for Mr English to return to their land for good and rightly so.
Michael, unfortunately, hasn’t been a stranger to the police in this country but it is clear to me from the conversations I have had with him that his intentions are not to break the law but solely to spread his message that he has been blessed with – the caveat of that being he has been flagged up numerous times by Greater Manchester Police as a “terrorist”…in my eyes he is the opposite of that. If we had more people like Michael English in this world it is clear to me that the world would be rid of a large percentage of the parasites that spread hatred and prejudice like Chabloz.
A question you have to ask yourself is; why is Michael English doing the job of the police in hunting the racists and Anti-Semites? What are the police doing about this ever-growing problem that is blighting the world we live in today? Not a lot by the looks of things.
I would like to send my blessings to Michael much as he would to you the reader and if I had to give one message to Michael it would be this;
Keep on fighting for the rights of not just the Jewish People but of society as a whole. Every day when a “person” like Chabloz is sentenced it is one more bigot off our streets that can’t be poisoning the minds of others with their fascist ideologies and beliefs. Unfortunately for every Chabloz that Michael helps to rid from society (even if it is for a mere 36 weeks) another 10 seemingly are born out of the smouldering ashes of the racist speech that will still pollute social media platforms and websites…this is the world we live in today.
