Australia: The Madness Continues

Authored by Judith Bergman via The Gatestone Institute,

  • "While terrorism's origins have many factors, Islamic terrorists, as heinous as their acts are, they are often merely doing what the scriptures are telling them." — Tanveer Ahmed, Muslim psychiatrist.
  • In Australia, according to judges, women and children must accept sexual assaults because it is part of the "Islamic culture" of their attackers. It would seem that in parts of Australia, this "Islamic culture" has replaced the rule of law. None of the above, however, seems to be enough to appease Muslim sentiments. In March, Anne Aly, Australia's first female Muslim MP, said that racial-discrimination laws should be expanded to cover insults based on religion as well.
  • In March, a teacher at Punchbowl Primary School quit her job after she and her family received death threats from the children in the school, with some of them saying they would behead her. The teacher's complaints to the New South Wales Department of Education were dismissed.

During the month of Ramadan alone, the world witnessed 160 Islamic attacks in 29 countries, in which 1627 people were murdered and 1824 injured. Nevertheless, the dual efforts to deny any links between Islamic terrorism and Islam on the one hand, and the efforts to accommodate Islam to the greatest extent possible on the other, seem to continue unaffected by the realities of Islamic terrorism -- in Australia, as well, which is experiencing its own share of sharia and jihad.

At the end of May, the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) called on the Australian Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade to:

"...include a recommendation in its report that disavows the notion that there is any inherent link between Islam and terrorism... The Committee should condemn any politician who refers divisively (expressly or implied) to any religious or ethnic group for the purpose of political gain."

PHAA Chief Executive Michael Moore said that there is no inherent link between any religion and acts of terror:

"When you look at terrorism and the IRA, I don't think many people blamed Christianity for terrorism when clearly there was an overlay. In fact there's nothing ­inherent in Christianity that links to terrorism".

Since when are public health officials qualified to make authoritative statements on the theology of Islam or its linkage to Islamic terrorism?

Muslim psychiatrist Tanveer Ahmed, would disagree. Speaking in June about the Australian media's disproportionate focus on "Islamophobia" he said:

"While terrorism's origins have many factors, Islamic terrorists, as heinous as their acts are, they are often merely doing what the scriptures are telling them."

While Australian officials rush to declare that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, revealingly they have referred to Islam or Islamic culture to exonerate Muslims on several occasions. In April, despite pleading guilty to sexually assaulting eight women and girls on a beach in Queensland, a young Afghan man was acquitted. The reason for the acquittal: "Cultural differences". According to the judge, "seeing girls in bikinis is different to the environment in which he grew up". The teen received two years' probation without being convicted of anything.

Similarly, in 2014 , a registered sex-offender and pedophile, Ali Jaffari, was accused of attempted child-abduction. However, Australian police dropped all charges against him, after a magistrate told prosecutors that he would have difficulties finding Jaffari guilty. According to news reports:

Magistrate Ron Saines said if he was hearing the matter, he would have reasonable doubt, citing "cultural differences" as one factor, which would result in the charges being dismissed.

In Australia, according to judges, women and children must accept sexual assaults because it is part of the "Islamic culture" of their attackers. It would seem that in parts of Australia, this "Islamic culture" has replaced the rule of law.

A recent taxpayer-funded study about domestic violence is an example of the trend, in certain parts of Australia, towards replacing Australian values with Islamic ones. According to the study, while refugees are grateful for, "peace, freedom, healthcare and education", the "major point of contention" is the issue of women's and children's rights:

The three-year study, funded by the Australian Research Council, concludes: "Many refugees see some human rights, in particular those relating to women and children's rights, as detrimental to their successful settlement in Australia."


It says some refugees argue "women's and child's rights contravene the cultural values, norms and mores" of their ethnic groups.

The study called for "cultural sensitivity and understanding of the impact on male refugees and... feelings of alienation and disappointment".

Domestic violence in Muslim households is already a hot topic in Australia. Keysar Trad, a former President of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, told Sky News in February that an angry husband can beat his wife as "a last resort". In April, the women's branch of Islamic group Hizb Ut-Tahrir posted a video from an all-women's event in Sydney to Facebook, in which two women demonstrated wife beating and called it "a beautiful blessing".

Accommodating Islam in Australia takes other forms as well. For Ramadan this year, Muslim inmates of two maximum-security prisons in the State of Victoria were given taxpayer-funded microwave ovens in their cells for the month, so they could heat their food up after sunset, when they can break their fast. The issue apparently caused unrest among the non-Muslims in the jails.

In Auburn, female Muslim swimming pool users were given a separate curtained pool, so that they could swim without male pool users seeing them. Belgravia Leisure, which operates the facility, said, "the curtain was installed to overcome cultural barriers and encourage Muslim women to use the pool". The company's general manager, Anthony McIntosh, said it was "a move to make the pool accessible for all cultural groups".

None of the above, however, seems to be enough to appease Muslim sentiments. In March, Anne Aly, Australia's first female Muslim Member of Parliament, said that racial-discrimination laws should be expanded to cover insults based on religion as well. The Grand Mufti of Australia, Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, has voiced similar opinions.

In June, the Islamic Council of Victoria made a submission to a Parliamentary inquiry, requesting from the government:

"To create safe spaces urgently needed by Muslim youth to meet and talk about a range of issues in emotional terms, where they can be frank and even use words, which in a public space would sound inflammatory".

In other words, Muslims should have a taxpayer-funded "safe space" where they can incite unhindered against Australians?

Some Muslims have decided to create a "safe space" on their own, segregated from the rest of Australian society. In Brisbane, the Australian International Islamic College is planning an exclusively Muslim enclave, including a mosque covering 1,970 square meters; a three-storey elder-care and residential building, 3,000 square meters of retail space and 120 residential apartments, in addition to new classrooms and a childcare center for 2,000 students. The existing site is already home to the college, which caters to students from kindergarten to 12th grade. So much for "multiculturalism".

Clearly, the appeasement is not working. It never has. Appeasement, in fact, usually seems to have the opposite effect. Here are a few recent examples of how Australian policies have been working out lately:

In April, a Christian man in Sydney wearing a cross was attacked by a Muslim gang of youths, who, while screaming "Allah', and "f**k Jesus", threw his cross to the ground and violently assaulting him. According to Baptist Pastor George Capsis, this was the fourth such attack on a Christian in Sydney in the past six months.

In Sydney's Punchbowl Boys High School -- one of 19 schools in New South Wales identified as at risk of radicalizing Muslim students -- students were "pressured to attend daily prayer meetings, lectures on the Koran and even cut their hair by peers badgering them to conform to Islam".

The 19 at-risk schools all participate in an anti-radicalization program, but the principal of Punchbowl Boys High School, Chris Griffiths, a convert to Islam who has since been fired, had refused to participate in it; he said that he was "not comfortable with prayer groups being monitored or the school being 'stigmatised'".

Griffiths need not have worried. Those de-radicalization programs apparently do not work very well. In March, a Sydney teenager who was in a de-radicalization program pleaded guilty to planning a terrorist attack on Anzac Day in 2016. The teenager was accused of trying to obtain a gun for his intended April 25 attack; then, when that failed, a bomb manual.

In March, a teacher at Punchbowl Primary School quit her job after she and her family received death threats from the children in the primary school, with some of them saying they would behead her:

She said she was abused by students when she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.




Many of the students also reportedly spoke of family members fighting in the war in Syria and pupils would walk out mid-way through a lesson to go and pray.

According to news reports, the teacher's complaints to the New South Wales Department of Education were dismissed.

Jihad also came to Australia during the recent Ramadan. After ISIS had told its supporters to attack the infidels "in their homes", Yacqub Khayre, an Australian Muslim, took that literally. On June 5, in a serviced-apartment block in an affluent Melbourne suburb, he took a woman hostage, killed another man, then, during the attack, called a television station and told them that his attack was for ISIS and al-Qaeda. But the Australian police are not easily fooled: they said at the time that terrorism was just "one line of inquiry". Khayre, a Somali immigrant, was, it turned out, well-known by the authorities. He had, in fact, been acquitted of plotting a terror attack at a Sydney army base in 2010; had served sentences for arson and violent crimes, and had been paroled in November 2016.

ALL acording to plan...nothing to see here, it is just a plan to turn europe into a future race of mongrel Jew-worshippers... now deployed worldwide.check also:-KALERGI plan (miscegenation into low IQ brown mongrels) / also Hooton plan-George Soros leaks on the Merkel plan Merkel Plan Compassion and Control… Charlemagne Prize BEARERS list professional rapefugee smuggler operation… divörsity™ Lerner Spectre"I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive." ~ Barbara Lerner Spectre"Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit...The man of the future will be a mongrel.  Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian–Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals."Practical Idealism - by Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

Home invasion legislation exists in NSW giving gun owners some degree of protection if they use their firearm for self defence in their homes. Admittedly, you will still be charged and still need to go to court etc. Better than nothing I suppose. As for when you are out and about, it's ridiculous. Self defence is a defense, but we have not practical means to effect our own defence due to prohibitions on carrying anything as a weapon (at least in NSW and I doubt the other states are any different)!

That is mindblowing.  Australia... they dumped the Irish in there like mad.  It was, and some still is, frontier.  How the hell did that ever happen?  It's sad is what it is.  Eventually everybody is going to have no choice but to break the law and get your God given right to self defense back.

Reason #1. You need to kill a traitorous judge.
Reason #2. You need to kill a lying thieving traitorous politician.
Reason #3. You need to kill a terrorist.

Actually you do not need a gun to kill these type of people. There are literally thousands upon thousands of ways to get rid of these type of bastardized people. Put your mind to work and harden your heart to complete the task.. Then do it.

I wonder how they would feel if it was their PM getting ass banged.But no, normal people "just have to be sensitive" while the witless fools in charge live in gated communities with armed security.

The art of the stealth war:

- mass immigration, both illegally & legally
- breed much faster than the indigenous population
- bankrupt the state with mammoth new security costs and huge new unsustainable welfare costs
- gain overwhelming political influence and power
- initiate blasphemony laws and sharia courts

Caliphate accompli.

This article tracks many of the Australian practices which Merkel is adopting for Germany - limiting free speech and reporting by news organizations - allowing rapes and molestations - which track CNN formative behavior in the US - CNN Cuomo threatens blogger to limit his speech with violence - black assassinates cop in NYC - black shoots up doctors in NYC - These murderous Acts in NYC were styled as Grievances

So black and brown are depicted as victims justifying ......anything

The resistance by state attorney generals to voter registration documents means massive local fraud is in place - and the vote is the solution to power and suppression of the white race

The thread between events is getting completely transparent

Cultural Marxist agenda to destroy established settled law, societal norms of human behavior

Women are chattel to be taken like animals merely on someone's whim and defended as just by the courts

Hillary was planning on nationalizing the local police to set standards for enforcement different for various identity groups and the enabling catalyst was the elimination of the second amendment

They want women to be raped as policy to overcome the genetic limitations of race as quickly as possible

Cultural Marxism

The only thing propping up this vile edifice of appeasement is the false notion that we have moved beyond Maslows basic hierarchy of needs ( food / warmth/ safety / security etc) into some other realm. Our debt driven near future implosion suggests something else. Western leaders will have far more important matters to attend to once people understand they have no pension, no job and a very thin future economically . Not long now.

Francestralia. Are you kidding me? Thank god we have guns here. The 2nd should be instituted in all countries. Makes for a kinder and more civil populace.

That's right 100 million gun owners yet you have certifiable psychopaths running your country into the ground like Australia. They walk around untouched or calling for war in their committees yet not one of them challenged. I live in Brisbane where they can't publish the addresses of sex offenders because lynch mobs will form, this is partly the reason for the media blackout of minority crimes. Yet in America their locations are public knowledge why is that? Thank God for Pauline Hanson.

thought the aussies are more realistic about that invaders. sooner or later white people have to decide where to live together. suggest USA or Australia. Nuke Eurabia and thats it...

We certainly are, but we have a lot of do-gooders among the politicians and judges. But there is probably also the consideration to avoid inflaming the situation. What's described in the article definitely goes to far. We will probably push against that. Anne Aly, as quoted above, has so far on TV made a good impression as a moderate influence. So she's either a Trojan or has been turned. In a society where 30% have (se Census) kicked religion out of their life her demand is peculiar and may have been  imposed on her by who knows who. We all need to take religions less seriously because they spell division and trouble.If I had my way, I would let in only people who agree to change their muslim names. If the Department of Immigration would give these people priority, many would take that up and create a distance to religion.

dont think muslims will leave their religion. at least its less than 5 % who really do. if they agree its called Taqiyya. I live in germany and a lot of muslims converted on the paper to christianity and tell authorities they are political targets in their home countries to avoid deportation. converting to christianity, being gay or transgender mean death penalty in their home countries and are the top 3 answers to authorities when its up to deportation.and boom - case closed, good life in europe. believe me, they will never leave their religion but tell you everything you want to hear.. just Taqiyya
