Islam IS on Trial

E-mail Print PDF
Some readers may recall the story of the Muslim found with chemicals for bomb making in his house who claimed he was just interested in chemicals. He also had a map of the Sydney electricity grid he claimed he kept ‘for artistic purposes’. Now we have a Sydney man, Belal Saadallah Khazaal , who has authored a Jihad instruction book and who is protesting his innocence of any crime. No doubt it was written for his own personal use and inner spiritual growth, to promote harmony and peace. However, Khazaal, it seems, has aroused some suspicions on the part of the australian Commonwealth Police, suspicisons that what he is doing is not for personal meditation needs. He is before the Supreme Court of NSW because the police think he may have been up to no good. However the judge, Justice Megan Latham is pleading with onlookers and jurors not to assume that ‘the Muslim religion is on trial’.
 
Khazaal
Belal Saadallah Khazaal, who has authored a Jihad instruction book: Provisions on the Rules of Jihad - short judicial rulings and organisational instructions for fighters and mujahidin against infidels

It is therefore very unpleasant that the prosecution let it be known some time ago, some facts about the book that Khaazal wrote [of course using the word ‘allegedly’]:
In September 2003, Khazaal allegedly compiled a book titled: Provisions on the Rules of Jihad - short judicial rulings and organisational instructions for fighters and mujahidin against infidels. By publishing it on the internet, the court was told, he tried to urge others to engage in a terrorist act. The act allegedly involved an action or threat of action against people identified in the book, including diplomats, military personnel and holders of public office. It was done "with the intention of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause, namely the advancement of the Muslim religion in the world". (source)
Now if the very title of Khaazal’s book admits that it is for ‘fighters’ and ‘mujahidin’ struggling against infidels – and gives information on how to perpetrate terrorists acts - that is on the rest of us who are non-Muslims – then it would appear reasonable for a juror to ask what ideas and motivation are behind the book.  Why not? We do it in relation to other cult leaders and bizarre individuals who endanger the lives of others.
 
Two brothers

Now it appears that in 2006, in an earlier attempt to get this case to trial, Khaazal’s lawyers, solicitor Adam Houda and barrister Peter Lange,  asked to see other written material of Khaazal’s that ASIO had got hold of, that put the nation’s security at risk.  Apparently they were not supposed to see it – but a justice David Kirby accidentally gave them access when he should not have .
 
The judge was not told that the material to be examined by the defence might be confidential or, as ASIO puts it, contain matters "vital to the nation's security". That was the first crossed wire. The second crossed wire was when Houda and Lange turned up in the Supreme Court's exhibits office to look at the material. They were handed a bundle of stuff that ASIO and the federal police say they weren't supposed to see and, further, they should have known they weren't supposed to see it. (source)
After the glaring security mistake was realised [oops I did not mean to let off the bomb!], the lawyers acting for Richard  AcklandKhaazal were asked not to mention any of the incriminating material they saw.
It's not entirely clear whether they weren't supposed to see it because it endangered the success of the prosecution case or endangered the nation's security. In any event the two lawyers signed undertakings about keeping confidential what they had sighted. Not even their client is allowed to know. (source)
Whatever the reason for the confidentiality agreement, Richard Ackland of the Sydney Morning Herald, saw it all as a great infringement of ours and Khaazal’s liberty and wailed long and loud in a complaining article. Those of us who realise that a quieter but none the less very lethal form of Jihad is being waged by many Muslims through the courts and institutions in Australia, are surprised that though ASIO and the courts were slow on the uptake, they got into action in the end with the confidentiality undertaking. And in fact noticed that the ‘peaceful’ book Khaazal wrote, might actually endanger the security of our country. Another funny thing – Khaazal’s defence lawyers, unless I am mistaken, have not comnplained too long and loud about bieng gagged on this – maybe they realise material would compromise their client more than they would care to say.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecution states that peace-lovin’ Khazaal’s  first offence ‘allegedly’ occurred between September 20 and September 23, 2003,No, not Islam and the second between September 22 and October 8, 2003, in Sydney and "elsewhere in the world".

Meanwhile, Justice Megan Latham, with rhetorical wringing of her hands,  pleads with the newly empanelled jurors not to put Islam on trial. We have the following comment from one of the msm articles on the subject[very few are willing to carry this story].
The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) claims Khazaal caused the document to be posted on a website. The DPP also claims the terrorist act he allegedly tried to incite was "an action or threat of action against anyone or more of a number of persons identified in the document including diplomats, military personnel and holders of public office". The indictment further claims that if the action was carried out, it would cause death or physical harm or property damage. (source)

Does a bomb have to go off in front of a judge before a threat is seen? As bombs go off in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Turkey, Morocco, NY and China? Ordinary citizens can ask – why the desperate plea not to consider that ‘Islam’ is on trial? Is it because one must not ever consider a religious faith’s ideas as important enough to be discussed and considered in the market place of discussion, in this post modern relativist age where such a notion would be anathema? If so, this is a huge mistake, because then Justice Latham would be out of step with the way billions of people in the world think – lots of them Muslims – who direct their entire lives according to some religious outlook and in the case of Islam are willing to die and kill others for it, as part of the CORE belief. Or is it that Justice Latham is too terrified by the consequences of the fact staring her in the face – that Islam indeed has motivated the writing of the materials inciting terrorism – and that as a belief system, it is used to justify violence against others. It is on the one hand very craven of Justice Latham not to face this fact, and on the other hand very insulting to Muslims, in not taking seriously the words of their prophet whose final exhortations were to wage war against infidels by any means – otherwise adherents of Islam would not reach Paradise.

This is the unpleasant fact that Justice Latham must face – it is what those aware of Islamic activity in the west have been warning others of for a long time – Islam IS ON TRIAL in the west – and a judgement must be formed about it, if the west is to survive.

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.

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.
