Cronulla revisited

E-mail Print PDF
With the elections nearly upon us, some Saturday newspapers used the opportunity to push their agenda.

FlanaganAl Age didn’t disappoint, with a piece by Waleed Aly’s mate, Martin Flanagan, reminiscing about Cronulla.
 “Tension had been building all week, stories spreading of women being insulted on the beach by youths of Lebanese descent and a lifesaver getting assaulted. Other groups — far-right groups — gathered. On the radio, Alan Jones was calling it like a war and text messages were proliferating about "bash-a-Leb" day. Ron Smith, president of one of the surf clubs on Cronulla beach heard the chant of "Kill the Lebs" from within the crowd of about 5000. Some of those whose passions were taken to such a pitch that day by the issue of identity subsequently bashed a youth on a train who looked Lebanese….
No doubt here whose fault it was: on the strength of only “stories”, evil “far-right groups” were baying for Lebanese blood.

And how did these poor Lebanese victims react?
“..Muslim youths massed at the Lakemba mosque, fearing an attack on their holy place, and there were retaliatory raids in what are called "Anglo" suburbs
Oh, virtuous youths, whose first thought was to protect their holy place. And you can hardly blame them for fighting back when they’d been so provoked.

Busted "youths"

What else  our journos conveniently forget to mention?   
Sydney's Catholic Archbishop George Pell said bullets were fired at a school staging Christmas carols in Sydney's west on Monday night.
Bruce Baird, the Liberal MP for Cronulla,… with Victorian Liberals Petro Georgiou, Russell Broadbent and Senator Judith Troeth, withstood the wrath of his party to take a stand for refugees.
Well, there are a few good apples among those evil Liberals!

North Cronulla Muslim lifesaver Suheil Damouny was with relatives in America when news of the riot broke. "A genuine fear exists among many Muslims that, if the world situation is further mishandled, we could descend into a world war," he says.
Yes, we all know that the world situation is our fault, and Muslims are the victims - even the terrorists are onlyBaird reacting to our “mishandling” of things. But silly me, they’re not terrorists at all, just victims of our hegemonic imperialism.

Flanagan asks Smith what he thinks about John Howard:
"Did he show any leadership? Did he say I'll go down there and talk to those people?" Of Bruce Baird, Smith says: "He was fantastic."

No, of course Howard didn’t show any leadership. After all, he’s the villain of this piece.

One of his Baird’s initiatives was to organise funding for the Same Wave program, whereby 19 kids from the western suburbs trained to become surf lifesavers. Not all were Muslim, but most were.
Suheil Damouny… identifies as Muslim but doesn't practise. … (reference)
Well, that’s a relief. Maybe that means he doesn’t follow the Qu’ran which mandates killing infidels!



Al Age also had Waleed Aly relate how Jonathon Evans gave his first public speech as the new director-general of Britain's MI5, - 
Waleed Aly “making two quite shocking claimss: 1) that there are at least 2000 — and perhaps up to 4000 — individuals in Britain who pose "a direct threat to national security and public safety, because of their support for terrorism"; and 2) that "terrorists are methodically and intentionally … radicalising, indoctrinating and grooming" people "as young as 15 and 16" for terrorist activity…
… Contemplating the British terrain makes plain to us how comparatively limited the problem of terrorism is here. Estimates of the number of potential Australian terrorists… suggests a figure in the tens, not the thousands. Since September 11, Britain has seen more than 200 convictions on terrorism-related charges. We've had barely a handful…. The difference in magnitude is staggeringly vast.”

Waleed is impressed with the British response to Evans' revelations, with the media mostly ignoring them, or noting the convenience of Evans' timing, the day before a new Terror Bill was to be introduced. Even the conservatives urged a cautious approach, arguing "we must avoid an indiscriminate response that would drive young Muslims into the arms of fanatics and destroy the trust of local communities".

It seems that multiculturalism has resulted in the total dhimmification of the British press, government and opposition.

Waleed uses the British example to blast Australia’s counter-terrorism measures.
“The apparently irresistible imperative in the Australian counter-terrorism debate seems to be towards greater belligerence. Anything less commits one of the great political sins of our age: to risk being branded as soft on terror.”

He gives an example:
“When Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty suggested, in the aftermath of the Madrid bombings, that Australia was now a greater terrorist target because of its involvement in the invasion of Iraq, John Howard told him in no uncertain terms to shut up. Keelty's analysis violated the central pillar of faith in our political dogma: that terrorism has nothing whatsoever to do with our conduct, so that we can neve…, exacerbate the threat by anything we do. This narrative, that terrorists are motivated by nothing other than their incomprehensibly evil psychosis, delivers us inescapably to the most belligerent response. Where terrorism has no reason, no cause and no context, it remains for us only to capture and kill its practitioners.”

Well, actually, as all the Islamic terrorists make clear, it’s not what we DO that offends them, but what we ARE i.e. infidels. We offend merely by not embracing Islam! Their “incomprehensibly evil psychosis” is Islam.

“..a substantial body of research suggests such exclusively hardline approaches to counter-terrorism only amplify the terror threat in the long term, especially if these policies are perceived to be discriminatory in their application….”
Maybe, just maybe, they discriminate against Muslims because most terrorism is committed in the name of Islam!
 
Maroubra

“A Monash University study published last month suggests approaches to counter-terrorism in Australia may similarly be having a radicalising effect”.
Yes, well, as Waleed is himself a lecturer on global terrorism at Monash, you must forgive me for being a little sceptical about any report published by that insitution. (See AIM articles – ‘Politics Courses; open enquiry or propaganda? ’ and ‘Does Monash University have different standards for Muslims?’)

“This kind of observation has been made before — most recently in the immediate aftermath of the 2005 London bombings, where the ready contrast was with the American response to September 11. Britain showed a sense of calm, determined continuity in that moment. The US grasped for triumphalist revenge.”
Oh, evil US – obviously not dhimmi enough for our Wally!  (reference)

So there you have it: it’s all our fault, Muslims are victims.
The inevitable conclusion: better appease them with yet more privileges if we don’t want an increase in terror attacks!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
