Aunty finally tells the truth about Islam

E-mail Print PDF
I never thought I’d say this, but hats off to the ABC for having the courage to show an honest portrayal of Islam. Not before time: we’ve had endless programmes portraying Islam as peaceful, so maybe in order to salvage their reputation, they felt they had2 deceivers to do something to show balance. 

And they did us proud!

Mind you, not everyone was happy. Irfan Yusuf, writing in Al Age, spun desperately to try to undo the damage wrought by “Jihad Sheilas”, but the cat was well and truly out of the bag. These sheilas told it like it was, warts and all. And boy, is it ugly!

Talking of cats, Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens before converting to Islam) delivered a faultless Islam propaganda performance on ABC the previous week.  “ Islam's reflections on why he swapped music for God and embarked on charity and peace work are intriguing in this insightful program” is a masterful exercise in deceit. (Reference)
 
(For more on Yusuf’s “peace” work, see AIM Article: Theatre of the Absurd: Moonshadows: a Magical Tribute to Cat Stevens
Admittedly, his music is to die for - which is exactly what will happen to us if we don’t stand up against Islam. Apart from his claims as to the peaceful nature of Islam, he reassures us that Islam does not ban music (despite massive evidence to the contrary in their texts) and made the curious claim that Islam, not the Spanish, invented the guitar. Seems there’s nothing these clever Muslims didn’t invent, including the story that Islam is one of the Abrahamic religions and is a religion of peace that doesn’t intend to chop off infidel heads.

But back to Irf, who described Jihad Sheilas as:
“the story of two Australian women who became caught up in a whirlpool of religious extremism. They were among a tiny proportion of a generation of Muslim youths and converts radicalised by people linked to past conflicts in Afghanistan…Certainly the Afghan jihad was presented by Western media in the 1980s as a just war… A coalition of right-wing think tanks and Western and Arab governments promoted the jihad…and the plight of Afghan refugees were causes heavily promoted by religious foundations, imams and spokesmen for various Afghan mujahideen factions.”
So it’s really the Western neo-cons that are responsible for the Afghan jihad; somehow, I had a hunch it might be all our fault!
 
Spitful hag
Misunderstood Rabiah Hutchinson: "Now the families of the ... people who died in Bali are upset? Well, you know, they've got to get over it and move on," Ms Hutchinson told The Australian

Warming to his theme, Irf notes that one woman praises Osama bin Laden, “whom some regard as merely a former CIA-backed operative who organised Arab volunteers for the Afghan jihad. Another attributes drug abuse and pedophilia to Australian victims of the Bali terror attacks, among them two members of the Sumer family of Cypriot Muslim origin.”

Irf, let’s see if I’ve got this right; not only is the West responsible for Osama and the Afghan jihad, but we mustn’t forget that Muslims were victims of Bali too.
 
“So much modern political radicalism in Muslim communities is rooted in contemporary political conflicts in the nominally Muslim world. These often become the centre of spiritual attention for young Muslims with little exposure to mainstream Islamic theology and little understanding of the nuances of the conflict.”
So mainstream Islamic theology has nothing to do with contemporary political conflicts. Why then do jihadis use the Qur’an to justify their actions?
 
Picture of a thug
Irfan Yusuf doesn't mind applying  good, old, mainstream Islamic tactics -  threats and intimidation:
Lest we think converts are attracted to Islam because of the opportunity for jihadi mayhem, Irf hastens to assure us:
“Islam attracts people from all walks of life. Prominent Australian converts include former diplomats, prominent sportspeople and a former ABC foreign correspondent.”
Admittedly some diplomats and sportspeople, having human failings, are susceptible to bribes, inducement and propaganda, but the reality is that converts are mostly misfits like David Hicks, Jack Roche, and jihad sheilas.

Timur the LameThe core of Islam is the deeply spiritual tradition…which is known as "Sufism" in the West…. Many converts enter Islam after exposure to Sufi teaching for reasons similar to the attraction of Tibetan Buddhism.”
Yes, Irf, we’ve noticed the deeply spiritual tradition of sending handicapped women to blow themselves up in crowded markets and teaching tots to aspire to become human bombs. Just like Tibetan Buddhism!

Fringe politicised Islam has few followers among migrant Muslims, whose exposure to mainstream Islam means they know a fringe sect when they see one. Australia's radical "thick-sheikhs" tend to attract Muslim youth and converts…Converts bring zeal.. but sometimes they also bring problems whose solution is to be found not in religion but in counselling or psychiatry”

Sorry Irf, you can’t fool us: Islam IS political. But at least you admit you have to be seriously unhinged to follow Islam.

But what’s his solution to the problem of “fringe” Islam, which we are repeatedly told, has hijacked peaceful Islam?

“Muslim communities need . Support services should be set up and mosques should break down their cultural and linguistic barriers. When Islam becomes a genuinely Australian religion and not just a set of foreign cultural artefacts, fringe extremists will look elsewhere for recruits. Perhaps then people can make personal decisions about religion without being sucked into a whirlpool of political hysteria or media frenzy.” (source)

Sorry Irf, but you’ve just outlined the solution to “How do we get more suckers in to our death cult?”
 
No compulsion in religion
How to be more welcoming to converts? Just follow the path of Allah Irf.
A few massacress here and there and they will convert all by themselves. After all there is no compulsion in religion. 


Islam can never become a genuinely Australian religion because it is totally opposed to our egalitarian society.
All we can hope is that it can be contained, if not banned. As Bertrand Russell said
“Among religions, Bolshevism is to be reckoned with Mohammedanism rather than with Christianity and Buddhism. Christianity and Buddhism are primarily personal religions, with mystical doctrines and a love of contemplation. Bolshevism and Mohammedanism are practical, social, unspiritual, concerned to win the empire of this world.”

Rabiah Hutchinson, who follows Wahhabism, just like Osama Bin Laden, felt less sympathy for the victims of the Bali bombings than for the Afghans who helped her in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks "because they weren't holidaying in someone's country sometimes engaging in child pornography or paedophilia or drug taking". Rabiah and Raisah, in true Islamic style, are now claiming the programme misrepresented them and are threatening legal action. ABC head of national coverage Alan Sunderland, expressed confidence the program, while controversial in parts, is fair and balanced. (Reference)

Yes, I’m with you there Alan.
Fair and balanced are not words I usually associate with Aunty, but in this case they are justified.

Irf isn’t the only one who feels upset. Peter Hughes, survivor of the first Bali bombing, said Rabiah Hutchinson, the matriarch of radical Islam in Australia, who was married to the former Australian leader of Jemaah Islamiah, would be hunted down after her comments about the victims.

John Harrison, who lost his daughter Nicole in the bombing, said "I hope to Christ that someone belonging to her, like a son or a daughter, gets killed somewhere along the line and she suffers like we have."

But the thing is, John, she wouldn’t mind. Mothers gladly send their children to be killed for allah.
 
Loving Mother
But the thing is, John, she wouldn’t mind. Mothers gladly send their children to be killed for allah.

The women have now accused the documentary makers of deceitful and unethical conduct, saying they were told the material would be used on Australian Story, and focus on the women's conversion to Islam, not their alleged links to extremists.

But Rabiah said:
"I would defend Islam with my life…So that makes me a filthy, dirty, subhuman terrorist that deserves anything that anybody and everybody wants to do to them. Does that mean I'm going to go and lob grenades out of the bus in Lakemba? No, it doesn't."

Well, yes it well might. That’s what jihad is all about – imposing Islam by force.

As for the women’s concern the programme portrays them as traitors.
Yes, it certainly does.
As indeed they certainly are!

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.

History - Infidels' Resistance

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.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
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).
