An amazing double standard has appeared in Australia this week with Geert Wilders, the Dutch political leader now on a speaking tour of the country. I wrote in my last posting that not only had his speeches tried to be blockaded by violent ultra-leftist scum trying to stop freedom-loving citizens from hearing him. He has not only been vilified in the ignorant leftist media for trying to warn that Islam as an ideology is a menace to Western values and cultural norms - but from the freedom to speak. Also, God forbid you identify yourself as a gay person under Islam. I'm sure there were delusional gays in the mob of demonstrators not realising they would be killed under Sharia Law..
Depressingly, he has even been shunned by Opposition Leader Tony Abbott and even Jewish community leaders. All gutless and afraid to even debate the man for fear of agreeing with him. It seems to me that political or community advantage is being put before principle - and fear is prevent a rational discussion of Wilders' message. It's driven Abbott to misrepresent what Wilders is in fact saying and playing blind to the issue he actually raises - which is about the nature of Islam....not its followers.
This hypocrisy and fear is exposed best by what is misleadingly called a ''Peace Conference and Exhibition'' being allowed to organise in Melbourne in March. (see photo) The conference is advertised on billboards all over south Melbourne and is organised by the Islamic Information Services Network of Australasia and Islamic Research and Educational Academy. It is also backed by the Islamic Council of Victoria and a range of other Muslim groups, mosques and communities. It is fronted by Melbourne Muslim activist Wazeem Razvi, who in a recorded speech, boasted of a range of 15 international speakers and getting Prime Minister Julia Gillard to agree to be present at the conference. Looks like the conference will radiate all that's peaceful and light. NOT!
With such a wide backing and so many prominent speakers, it would be fair to say it represents Muslim thought today in Australia and the world. And when you check precisely what a number of speakers have said, you come up with a picture of Islam remarkably similar to the one Geert Wilders is trying to warn against. Take that main organiser himself. in a lecture recorded last December in Melbourne, Waseem Razvi, said he supports Sharia law in Australia and said Islam allowed violence in defence of the faith (and that includes criticism). He ranted, ''Yes, Jihad is very Islamic, so you don't have to retreat from that."
Here are some facts you should know about the other invited speakers.
- Al-Azhar Sheikh Abdur-Rahman Al-Sudais: Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca (highest ranking cleric in the Sunni Muslim world) is a virulent anti-Semite to judge from his sermons. This turd says, ''Jews are the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets and the offspring of apes and pigs. read history and you will understand that the Jews of yesterday are the evil fathers of the Jews of today.''
- Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem: He says, ''Homosexuality is unnatural and forbidden and in Islam the punishment for that is stoning to death. It is an abnormality which should be treated and is not accepted as a normal thing.''
- Sheikh Zahir Naik: He says a person who changes his religion from Islam to other religion is considered an apostate which is punishable by death. He also said he was a supporter of Osama bin Laden and says every Muslim should be a terrorist. He has also pronounced that the September 11 was an attack done by George Bush himself!
- Abu Hamza: In a lecture titled ''The Keys to a Successful Marriage'' he said men could beat their wives ''to shape them up.'' He also said women ''must respond'' if their husbands wanted to have sex and ridiculed laws that prohibit rape within marriage. He qualified the beating by saying, ''you are not allowed to make them bleed.''
- Sheikh Yee: This idiot claims that Jews celebrated the 9/11 attack, which weren't the work of Muslims and Jews are the real extremists. He says, ''Jews should go to Hell!''
- Sheikh Abu Ayman: A Melbournite who long defended Osama bin Laden; ''I dispute any evil linked to bin Laden. He was a good man in many ways.''
- Bilal Philips: He has been linked to jihadists and terrorist groups. The U.S. named him as an ''inidicted co-conspirator'' over the 1993 bombing of New York's World Trade Center and Australia's own security agency judged him a threat and banned him from coming here. Odd?
- Shekh Muhammad Sayyid: He will recite the Koran to the conference visitors and read verses in Arabic that call for the annihilation of the Jews and Christians if they get in the way.
How can anyone with two halves of his brain connected face the obvious and open animosity of a people bent on exterminating your culture, your religion and your hard won freedoms? It is a jihad-by-stealth as I wrote in a posting on MAY 18th, 2011. Read it and weep! Almost two years later I can't believe people are silent or even complicit in attempts to silence or frighten Wilders - who has not advocated violence - yet apparently are happy that true Hate-Preachers who preach death for gays, Jews and ''enemies'' of Islam may speak freely in this country? Why the hypocrisy? Why the fear?
NOTE: I highly recommend that you get hold of a Koren and read its disorganised chapters from cover to cover and see for yourself how many times (over 200+) it states that Muslims should hate and kill Christians and Jews and any other religion they deem as infidels (Hindus and Buddists beware)!
