Gullible Auzzie convert raises questions

E-mail Print PDF
Full FreedomThe tale of Tanya Louise Smith (20), Sydney convert to Islam who travelled to Yemen, married a Muslim and then while pregnant travelled alone to Gaza generates many concerns  -  (The Australian June 30, 2008) .  I make no assertions regarding Tanya who may have been misled and suffered a terrible ordeal.  

We know she was with a group of Australians studying Islam in Yemen (apparently reading its horrible text in Australia isn’t enough!!).
“Ms Smith first arrived in Yemen in October 2006, and quickly settled into a community of pious Islamic Australians studying Islam and Arabic in Sana'a. Among the expatriates were Mohammed bin Ayub and Abdullah bin Ayub, the sons of the alleged former leader of Jemaah Islamiah in Australia, Abdul Rahim Ayub.”

Apparently Ms Smith is a Salafist (regarded as neo-Wahhabism).  Salafists attempt to return to Islam as practised by Mohammad - that should be enough to terrify anyone.  They have a direct and literal interpretation of the Koran and hadith.  Salafism and Wahhabism are often used interchangeably but Salafis claim to be more radical purifiers of Islam!

Women must be covered head-to-toe and most ban modern inventions eg photography, music, conventional banking, elections but others such as TV, radio, internet are accepted if used to promote Salafism!!!!  Some are purists (‘defensive’ jihad); activists (infiltrate governments etc to achieve an Islamic state) and jihardists who actively advocate violence and terror against ‘enemies of Islam.’   They are the main carrier of Islamic terrorism around the world to destroy the west, and install Islam eg al-Queda - al-Zawahiri  (P. Sookhdeo, Global Jihad, Isaac Publishing 2007 p 292-294).  The Salafists/Wahhabists control the majority of mosques in the west and their agents permeate everywhere.


The taste of Islamic Women Liberation 


1. Should we be concerned that so-called Australians head to the middle-east to study this lovely ideology then return to Australia!  (Note:  I do not accuse Tanya of being a terrorist).
2.  Should we be concerned at the blatant pro-Islamic lies told to gullible Auzzies?   
3. Should we be concerned that we are forbidden from openly revealing and discussing Islam’s horror text and aims?  Why is the pro-Islam narrative the only one allowed?

In Australia a recent dawa conference taught Muslims how to spot the gullible ripe for ‘conversion.’  We are constantly bombarded with pro-Islamic propaganda - but any critical analysis of Islam is forbidden.  Even our humble site is blocked on some ‘tertiary’ campuses for fear that the ‘adults’ there might discover the truth about Islam! 


How lovely!
We are constantly bombarded with pro-Islamic propaganda

Some of the big whoppers Tanya fell for according a website posting by Tanya in December 2006 re her conversion:


a)  " It is because of my Islam that I don't live in fear of a husband that comes back every night to bash me until I'm black and blue, and then rape me."

Is this a joke? Surely everyone, including Muslims, knows Islamic text (allah in Koran 4.34, many hadith) and Mohammad’s fine example (he punched tiny Aisha hard) plus Islamic laws (eg Reliance M10.12  p 540-541) give men the right to beat/whip/lash/scourge women!!  And all without any need to be drunk to remove inhibitions against doing something which is wrong because under Islam, beating women isn’t wrong, it’s a right given to men by allah and Mohammad.

As for rape - there is no rape within marriage in Islam as allah in the Koran (2.223, 2.222), hadith (eg * Abu Dawud Book 11, No 2159), laws (Reliance m5.4  p 526) gives the male the right to ‘enjoy’ the female’s body in any way he likes, whenever he likes and mandates that the female be available (many hadith, laws)!!  And under Islam, rape outside marriage is impossible for a woman to prove without Muslim male witnesses!!!   (some text - Blame Islam, not Yemen - 25-07-08)

Has Tanya seen the story of 8 (10)  year old Yemeni girl also in Sana who was raped and beaten by her husband and had to compensate him to get a divorce? NONE of the behaviours of the husband/father contravene Islam LINK1LINK2 )

b)  "It is because of Islam that I am empowered as a woman and not sexually exploited by man, I dress for God and not for man,"
Empowerment of women under Islam according to the Quranic teachings

Who tells you what ‘god’ wants---a man!   Why would god make your body so offensive that it must be covered head-to-toe while men can wear what they like?    What god gives men the right to regard uncovered women as ‘cat’s meat’ they can rape?   Since when has being covered up so you can’t be recognised and being forbidden to speak to men, move about freely and openly etc been regarded as empowerment!

If this isn’t sexual exploitation, what is it?  Men can marry and have sex with pre-pubescent children; men can have multiple wives they can freely divorce and replace; men can have slaves and sex with their slaves; women can be enjoyed as the man wants and must be constantly available to satisfy his needs –this is a right given to him in marriage!  Men can also have mut’a and misyar marriages gaining ‘legal’ sexual access to females while giving virtually nothing in return! ( reference).  Muslim marriage =serial polyprostitution (multiple ‘prostitutes’ at once)

Is Tanya aware of those two burka clad women accused of prostitution in central Afghanistan, who were executed by the Taliban (the closest yet to a true Islamic state) in front of a group of men (Heraldsun 15/7/08)?  They dressed ‘for god’.   And the girls/women stoned to death or hung for adultery (Heraldsun 22/7/08) or illicit relationships  (Heraldsun 28/7/08) or crimes against their chastity in chador enforcing Iran (reference) .

c)  “Islam liberated women 1500 years ago.”  

On the contrary, it locked into place for eternity the worst position for women - -along with  sexual exploitation, Islam gave male guardians control over females to an extreme level;  it restricted women’s movement;  it dictatedMuslim Liberation her clothing;  it deemed her inferior in every way and destined for hell;  it called her crooked, full of guile, like a devil, twisted, deceitful, ungrateful, polluting—touching a woman makes you unclean so you must wash (Koran 4.43, 5.6);  her word became worthless against a male;  her legal status was reduced;  it denied women authority over men;  her inheritance was limited (a Muslim wife received virtually nothing on divorce and possibly only 1/32 of hubby’s wealth after debts are paid if there are other wives and children --far less than a Jewish wife who in Jewish marriage contracts hundreds of years before Islam could receive ½ hubby’s wealth on divorce or death, pre payment of debts and today non-Muslim women in the west and Israel inherit as equals!  This can never be the case for Muslims as the inequality of women is set by allah/Mohammad forever!! One of Mohammad’s wives Umm Salama (Umme Salmah) complained that men got booty  (women didn’t) and more inheritance.);..etc!!!

Research shows women pre-Islam were NOTcloistered, veiled or segregated from men and worked and enjoyed various roles in society.  They often fought alongside men.   There was a wide variety of marriages –some very advantageous to women.   Al-Tabari’s (10th century Muslim historian) account of Hind bint Otba (Utba), wife of Abu Sufyan, head of one of the aristocratic families of Mecca, shows women swore their own allegiance, took part in negotiations and were hostile to Mohammad. (Warraq p 292, 293  read of Hind’s fights against Mohammad and feisty comments when he made them surrender in Sirat Rasul Allah pp 374, 379, 385, 386, 425/6, 548, 553)

During Mohammad’s time the Persians elected a queen and he commented that a nation ruled by women would never be successful (*Bukhari Vol. 9, book 88, No 219;*Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 709):

Mohammad’s men feared their women would become more like other women who ‘had the upper hand’ over their men  (*Bukhari Vol 3, book 43, Number 648).   

The Meccans had 3 goddesses- AL-Lat, al-Uzza, Manat.

Al UzzaThere were influential priestesses and poetesses like Asma bint Marwan, who composed poems against Mohammad, and whom he had murdered as she slept with her children! (Ibn Warraq 'Why I am not a Muslim' 1995 p93-94.)!!

Remember Khadia who married Mohammad after he came to work for HER, long before he became allah’s apostle.  She inherited wealth from her second husband, ran her own merchant business, had authority over men, owned property etc in the PRE-ISLAMIC world.   After Khadia’s death, repressed extoy-boy Mohammad began his personal brothel and ensured women’s inferior position in his totalitarian, monstrously misogynist  ‘religion.’
Anyone who reads Islamic text knows that it is Islam itself which degrades women!

The above covers Tanya’s  claims - *we got to keep our own money; *we got inheritance ;* we could run a business  None of these things were unique to Islam and Islam undoubtably made the situation for many women worse –forever!   Muslims and their enablers perform stunning distortions to claim ‘western’ rights/equality exist under Islam which is patently false!!  Islam subjugates women.

d) "We have enjoyed the freedoms and rights of keeping our last names as we are not the property of our husbands”,

In many cultures women keep/kept their last name –so what?   When a Muslim male gets a dog, does he give it his last name, particularly if he plans to throw it out tomorrow?

As for not the property of her husband - give me a bucket!!  He bought ownership of her, particularly her genitals for a trifling mahr which may consist of nothing or a hand full of dates or a few quotes from the Koran –which might go to her guardian anyway!!

 e)  “We have had the right to vote before the women's liberation movement in the last century,”

Vote?  Salafists/pure Islam doesn’t have elections!  Many Muslim women still cannot vote---the Islamic world lags behind.  Egyptian women got the vote (1956) during a time of liberal nationalism with loud protests from religious clerics.   In Turkey women voted as Attaturk tried to stop Islamic barbarity.   In Kuwait in 2005...see (reference1)  and (reference2).

f) “I can choose who I want to marry”; 

Who can’t - Muslim women!  The pre-pubescent or virgin Muslim female can be ‘married’ regardless of her wishes.  If the guardian presents a man, an adult female may refuse (if she’s not afraid of being honour killed or beaten) but she isn’t free to ‘choose’ her husband (the sexes are segregated).  Her guardian has massive control.  She cannot conduct her own marriage contract and can’t marry a non-Muslim but a Muslim male can!!  Silence is taken as consent!

g) “the right to be protected and maintained by our husbands regardless of how rich I am."   

The wife must ‘give herself to him, obey him’...if she doesn’t there is no ‘support.’   He must pay for her staple food;  house her (wives may be forced to share if agreeable);  pay for some personal hygiene products, clothing customary in that town (no new clothes if they wear out before the end of season), bedding, cooking and eating implements, but he doesn’t need to pay for medicine, cosmetics etc!!    Women are dependent and insecure.   There is NO idea of an equal partnership, shared property/ownership or an emotional bond - just business - he provides X, she must supply Y - but this dehumanises her and makes her a ‘disposable’ object used for his sexual satisfaction.

Other societies can evolve.  Islamic society can only evolve if it ignores Islamic text/laws and Mohammad’s fine example - ie no Islam!

How I’d love to collect those women from Salem Cafe, the ICV and all involved in interfaith-Muslims,  Jews and Christians and fling them into Saudi Arabia or the Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan or Pakistan or Iran and leave them there, not as wealthy western guests, but as ordinary people living under Islam, then we’d see how great Islam is!  



How I’d love to collect those women from Salem Cafe, the ICV and all involved in interfaith-Muslims,  Jews and Christians and fling them into Saudi Arabia or the Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan

We know Ms Smith lived a devout Muslim life secluded behind vanity screens - after all she isn’t allowed to see/speak to/or touch any who aren’t her immediate, non-marriageable family.   Her offensive body, particularly the most offensive of all, a pregnant body, had to be hidden! (text  Hijab - Part 1 - 12/09/07 )


We also learn that it was not ‘Islamically’ possible for her to live independently and that her hosts wanted her to see how Muslims treat people -- Well, silly western converts anyway but don’t mention how Muslims treat Christians, Jews, Bahai, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians etc!!  

"We asked her: 'Would you like to go back?' She said: 'I really miss Australia, but it is a kafir (unbeliever) land.'

Why was she taken to the Israeli check point and whisked home?  Like many western Muslims who live with the rights, freedom, tolerance and safety given by our Judeo-Christian based society she has no idea what it really means to live under Islam.

Supposedly she is still ‘Muslim’ so why live in ‘Kafir’ Judeo-Christian Australia with ‘modern inventions’?  Is she afraid of being labelled an apostate as apostasy can mean DEATH?  

‘Regardless of her travails in Gaza, Ms Smith has apparently remained committed to Islam since returning to Australia, and she has consulted a fundamentalist Salafi imam.’

If she is still Muslim and married in the middle-east to a middle-east Muslim, why was she ‘rescued’ and at what expense to Australians particularly when Salafism and her associates in Yemen are cause for concern.  

we must not be tricked into allowing her husband and his extended family into Australia –surely a Muslim  Tanya would want to return to a pure Islamic society, not remain in kafir Australia.

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.

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.

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).
