The Reality of the Islamic Enemy Within: Up-Date #2
Here we go again! Western politicians appeasing Islamic sensibilities to curry favour and support. Most alarming is not that the Grand Mufti of Australia wrote this but that Labor officials leaked the email, presumably to stop union leader Paul Howes from running for a Sydney seat with a big Muslim minority.
Last week, Australia's senior Islamic cleric threatened to withdraw community support for federal Labor in Western Sydney if Paul Howes replaced Bob Carr in the Senate. The email, written on behalf of the Grand Mufti, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohammed (right), by his chief political adviser because even though Dr Ibrahim has lived in Australia for 20 years he still hasn't made the effort to learn English. This email accused Mr Howes of a ''blind bias for Israel'' and said that if he was appointed to the Senate, community support for Labor that was mustered for the federal election would be withdrawn.
The email says that....Mr Howes has had a repeated pattern of blind bias toward Israel. His appointment would not at all help the engagement effort between the ALP and the wider Muslim community.'' It went on to say, ''As you know we have worked very hard to marshal our community to support and successfully retain the majority of ALP seats in Western Sydney against all odds, and the choice of Paul will threaten our efforts to maintain this momentum, especially if new elections are called I the next year.'' Mr Howes, the national secretary of the Australian Workers' Union, announced he will withdraw from the contest (left).
I, and my fellow citizens would like to know how much has Labor, thanks to ass-kissers like Bob Carr and Sam Dastyari, prostituted Labor policy and the national interest to win votes of the Muslim community - or at least those votes influenced by the likes of the Mufti? That Labor would listen to the Mufti is a serious worry, given his links to extremists!
How about the Grand Mufti meeting with Hamas officials in Gaza? This included Prime minister Ismail Haniyeh and has been met with deep concern from Jewish community leaders. TV footage from December 26th, translated by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), quotes Dr. Mohammed as saying, ''We came here in order to learn from Gaza. We will make the stones, trees and people of Gaza talk in order to learn steadfastness, sacrifice, and the defence of one's rights from them. We are on Cloud Nine!'' This comment was particularly disturbing: ''I express my happiness at being in Gaza, the land of pride and martyrdom. I am pleased to stand on this land of jihad to learn from its sons.''
Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) executive director Colin Rubenstein (below) said, ''Hamas is a terrorist organization, subject to Australian financial sanctions, engaged in war crimes and is rife with extreme anti-Semitism, and is dedicated, in word and deed, to the violent destruction of a friendly state. It is incomprehensible that anyone with pretensions of moral authority would hold up Hamas-led Gaza as a model from which Australians can learn from.''
Nor did Mr Rubenstein think it was helpful for the Mufti to describe Australian soldiers in Afghanistan as agents of oppression who could inflame passions among Australian Muslims.
The Way I See It.....the linking of Australian foreign policy to reprisals by Muslims here may sound like an explanation to some but a threat to others -- or a legitimisation. He actually suggested there was a real relationship between Western foreign policy and the homegrown threat. He elaborated by saying, ''it is the nature of mankind that if there is any oppression upon any nation that our emotions start to move and react.'' I ask...doesn't that give us the right to get emotional about Muslim treatment meted out to Egyptian, Syrian, Iranian, Iraqi and Indonesian Christians? Watch out when we have had enough and react to your oppressive ideology.
And, as I mentioned, after so many years here, what does it say that even the well-educated Mufti has felt no need to learn more than the most basic English? What example is he setting? Are Muslims here immigrating or COLONISING? It is causing some to question his ability to fulfil the role of mufti. And this is the man calling for more mosques to be built in Australia as well as the man Labor takes its tips from in deciding whether the talented Howes may stand for election -- or actually not. Something is obviously very sick when politicians sell our country out to non-assimilators.
NOTE: In countries such as Australia where the office of Grand Mufti receives no official seal of government imprimatur, clerics can be elected to the position by one segment of the Islamic community in that country and yet not be recognised by other Muslim communities in that country.
