Concordia speaks out

(A letter from one of our readers) 
 
I'm a mature lady with a European background. I have been a social worker for many years until I came to Australia a few years ago.
 Islamic Europe
I know what means to be an immigrant , to be not at home but I also know what it means to be a citizen and this is what urges me to write and give a warning.

IIn Europe we let Muslims enter and speak in the name of  freedom of speech, to avoid being called racists.

They used the same freedom to fight against our democratic countries.We made the mistake of not understanding the sense in which freedom of speech and all the other values of the democratic countries are not for EVERYBODY! FREEDOM AND RIGHTS are only for who want to respect them and protect them, not for those who want to cancel and destroy them.

If now, here, in my country, Australia, I 'm uncomfortable speaking openly, it is because I feel threatened. It is clear to me then that something must be really wrong.
 
I don't want to see this country in the power of an Ideology, in the power of Sharia Law today and a Dictatorship tomorrow and I think no citizen wants it.
 
 
OUR DEMOCRACY IS AT STAKE : STAND UP AND SAY NO !

Our Democracy is at stake and Democracy means Freedom and Human Rights for everybody. So, wherein lies the danger ?


Every Ideology, Religion or Group which wants to politically dominate others in the name of an idea or deity is a danger.Yesterday the danger was Nazism, Fascism and Comunism.Today the danger is Islam. They are all totalitarian systems.

  • In 1989 Salman Rushdie became the object of a fatwa because of his book " The Satanic Verses"
  • In 2004 Theo Van Gogh was murdered because of his movie " Submission"
  •  In 2005 Danish cartoons were banned because they were considered offensive to Islam.
  • Hirsi Ali is still living in fear of her life because of her book " Infidel"
  • In February 2008 Tariq Ramadan called for a boycott ( a " moderate" fatwa) of the Turin Book Fair which will be held in May 2008. The organizers of the Fair had dared to make Israeli literature the centerpiece of the exibition in acknowledgement of the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the state of Israel.
  • Yesterday we read in the newspaper that the Netherlands face reprisals and a possible economic boycott by Muslim countries because a Dutch parlamentarian , Geert Wilders, is planning to release an anti-Islam film.
Victims of Islam
Salman Rushdie in hiding, his translator -  Hitoshi Igarashi slaughtered, Theo Van Gogh slaughtered

So the danger exists and it is a REAL, BIG, GLOBAL DANGER.

And someone like Tariq Ramadan , who calls himself a " moderate" Muslim should speak openly against this danger instead of trying to convince us that the Koran is a peaceful text, it is only a matter of translation and interpretation. In the peaceful Koran we can read  :

"... holy things demand retaliation..."
"... slay them, such is the recompense of unbelievers..."
( sura II , The Cow, 185-190 )

Aren't those words a clear incitement to violence against infidels?

And the same Tariq Ramadan answered my question at the Islamic Conference held in Brisbane on 3 March 2008 :

" Islam has nothing to do with Theocracy."
Ramadan

Tariq Ramadan, who travels around the world to propagate Islam and to incite hatred doesn't have to fear assassination. His life is not in any physical danger. 

It took us , civilized countries, almost 2000 years to achieve the separation of State and Church, to built a State where Democracy is at the foundation and not Theocracy. The values of Democracy are universal values and the State has to protect them on behalf of everybody. But who is the State ? WE ourselves are the State. Also:Ayan Hirsi Ali
 
  • The Muslims who fleed from their countries and who found a better life here for their families, the Muslims who wants to lead a peaceful life and abide by the laws of oue democratic State : they are the State and they have rights and duties .
  • All the other communities, who found refuge from poverty and tyranny here and who enioyed our freedom, they have the duty to protect this freedom.

So WE, western people and peaceful muslims and other communities, We have to get together because it is OUR State. It is time for all of us to stand up and say :

NO to Islam fundamentalism which wants to destroy what we have achieved.

NO to Islamic religious schools where children will be indoctrinated to hatred against non-believers and violence in name of Allah.

We have to learn to say with some conviction - If you don't like and don't accept our democracy : GO BACK to your
countries where your Koran has produced and still manteins submission and misery and injustice.

We have to say ‘Yes’ to OUR DEMOCRACY which is Democracy for every HUMAN BBEING !

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail

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.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

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).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.

A great tragedy of the Islamic control of our universities and political correctness plus the fear of extreme violence if anyone dares question the roots and claims of Islam is ...that nobody dares question the roots and claims of Islam!!!  I want to stimulate interest and offer this summary of information on Mecca from (LINK) which discusses some problems with Muslim claims in a comparison of evidence supporting Islam/Christianity.
