Muslim Green MOvementNow here’s a bandwagon for Islam to jump onto – the environment! With climate change and global warming the new black, what better way to further its goal of infiltration.

The theme for the Parliament of World Religions, to be held in Melbourne in 2009, is  “Make a World of Difference: Hearing Each Other, Healing the Earth,” which inspired the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia (JCMA ) - already government funded, but hey, why not extract more jizya! -and the Faith Communities Forum of Victoria, to initiate a Green Faith movement.. Sydney have the Faith Ecology Network and The Climate Institute, which has spawned the ARRCC (the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change) and the US have Green Faith, so why should Melbourne miss out on the climate honeypot?
Islamistophile Rabbi Keren Black enthuses how green faith “reflects the growing awareness among faith communities of the important connections between positive intercultural relationships and positive ecological practices.”  

…those of us who consider ourselves ‘religious’ have an enormous amount in common, as well of course as important differences...We pray to the same God, who created this magnificent diversity – who are we to try to make others the same as us? (source)
While we applaud his “positive intercultural relationships” with Hamas and Hezbollah-supporting ICV (see AIM article:An Islamophile Terror Twosome: ICV supports Hamas, Mufti supports Hezbollah ), which is endangering the Jewish community, to claim that Islamic and Judeo-Christian ethics are the same reveal an appalling ignorance of Islam, as does his belief that Allah is the same god as the one we pray to. And try telling Islam “who are we to try to make others the same as us”, because for them interfaith is just a da’wa opportunity.

Climate change and Islam are topics which brook no dissent: the former is all our fault, and violence by the latter is also all our fault. The Bishop of Stafford, The Very Rev Gordon Mursell, maintained those who refused to accept the climate change argument shared a “common philosophy of life” to Fritzl, who imprisoned his daughter in a cellar for 24 years during which he sexually abused her and fathered her seven children.
 “In fact you could argue that, by our refusal to face the truth about climate change, we are as guilty as he is – we are in effect locking our children and grandchildren into a world with no future and throwing away the key. We are right to be disgusted at these crimes. But mere disgust is too convenient. There are lessons for all of us to learn.”

Yes, you could argue this, just as you could argue that the moon is made of green cheese. But that doesn’t mean that such arguments should be taken seriously. (reference)
 
The interesting thing about interfaith is that the Jewish and Christian contingent never raise difficult questions, like what does Islam mean when it says it wants to kill them, but instead rushes to lavish praise on their Muslim faux-dialogue partners.
 
 
Smiling Idiocy
For some unknown reason all so called "Interfaith" gatherings revolve around Islamic themes:
Telstra's Ramadan Dinner in Melbourne (2006).Ramadan Photo from left to right:

Let’s hear it from Mark Pedersen, who attended the JCMA Conference in 2007.

This year's theme on Reconciliation - Healing of Memories - looked at how the three faiths relate to Abraham, and each community shared their stories and perspectives on Abraham.

I was involved in presenting material on the history of Islamic Spain... The example of the creative and refined society of Cordoba one thousand years ago challenges the current debates about multi-culturalism today. And yet the peaceful interaction of Jews, Christians and Muslims of that time and place was not able to prevail against the forces of isolationism, nationalism and so-called 'purity' that arose in Spain. This eventually lead to fall of the tolerant Ummayad Caliphate and the rise of the oppressive Almoravid empire, which in turn succumbed to the expanding Frankish kingdom from the Christian north and the eventual establishment of the Spanish Inquisition. This stands as a stark warning as to how easily tolerance and peaceful, creative relationships across faith communities can be driven out from a society under the banner of fear and cultural/national pride.

MaimonidesSo this Golden Age of tolerance in Islamic Spain was brought to an end by the wicked Christians! Just like today, where Muslims are victimised by our Western racism, even though Islam isn’t a race.
Working with my co-presenters was also a great learning experience - gaining a sense of perspectives on issues like the way that the concept of "crusade" (a noble struggle against a perceived evil) continues to permeate our culture, and how important it is to recognise the difference between the ideals espoused by the Crusaders and the reality of the indiscriminating slaughter that took place during the Crusades. "Collateral damage" has been with us for a long time.

That wouldn’t be a dig at the Western imperialists would it?
At least the Crusaders had lofty ideals, unlike the Jihadists whose religiously-inspired ideals were always for indiscriminate slaughter.

Another highlight was watching the Imam and the Pastor - hearing the story of how two men changed from being bitter enemies on either side of the conflict between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria to becoming partners in spreading reconciliation across their divided communities - so that they can continue to help "their children" - the people of Nigeria. The Imam's story of being inspired by the example of the Prophet, who declined the opportunity to call for the destruction of the city of Taifa after their rejection of his message, is a clear challenge to us when we're tempted by feelings of revenge or bitterness.

We all admire the Prophet’s noble example of never killing any who reject his message!
Michelle Malkin wrote in 2006 about how Nigerian Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches, all in the name of Muhamed.

Nigerian MPs burned Danish and Norwegian flags in a ceremony in the parliament premises, and despite the conciliatory Christian Association of Nigeria’s condemnation of the cartoons.
The Nigerian sharia council wants the Danish cartoonists executed.
Judith Apter Klinghoffer wrote: “If there is something worse than the killing of 15 innocent Nigerian Christians and the burning of their churches by their Muslim brethren for the sin of belonging to the same religion as the Danes, it is the refusal of reporters to tell the ugly truth.”
Indeed. None of the news stories make clear just how widespread, brutal, and prolonged Muslim violence against Christians in Nigeria has been as sharia law spreads. (source)


Still, let’s not let the ugly truth get in the way of interfaith!

The Muslim speaker, Malik Shakur, provided some interesting insights:
…people had assumed that I would have be very hardline,especially after the previous presentation by Manny, the Jewish presenter, who spoke about his time in the Israeli army and I could tell it hurt all of us muslims and even some of the Christians.
Firstly I would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of this land and the genocide that has been committed by the British and Australian Governments against them….

Malcolm X, who was a champion for the civil and human rights of the 22 million African Americans, the descendents of more than 100 million Africans, kidnapped and forced into slavery for more than 400 years by white colonialists, stated that for this tension and enmity to cease, both the White man, and the Black man need to be able to sit together as equals and discuss issues openly, without fear of hurting each others’ feelings.
… even though his father had been killed by the Ku Klux Klan, a group of white fanatical "Christians" and he and his family suffered so much due to the actions of the white man, he was still willing to work together to fix the problems that were dividing White and Black America….
Soon will come a time when we are comfortable enough with each other to be able to discuss the issues that are affecting us,… why we are sensitive to them. A wrong is a wrong and a sin is a sin, oppression is oppression and terrorism is terrorism, in the Sight of God, these are all sins that are never justifiable. Neither in Judaism, Christianity or Islam …therefore its time to stop the emotional responses and use the patience all of the prophet's have shown when they were being persecuted. Therefore it is important that the offending party acknowledges their wrongdoing and shows an intention to right the wrong that they committed.
NIgerian Christians
… after the wrong has been acknowledged, every effort must be made to rectify the situation, both parties need to engage in dialogue so that they can both come to an agreement of reasonable compensation, whether with a sum of 'blood money', memorials, a national day of remembrance, education in schools or a combination of the above.
Once it has been established that the side that has been guilty of crimes against the other has stuck to the agreement and taken active steps to rectify the crime, relations between the two parties should be normalised.
 Right now we have a world full injustice. The majority of the world lives in adverse poverty, oppressed either through foreign military occupation by resource greedy governments or by the economic imperialism by multinational corporations which are backed by those very same governments…We need to work together and build a moral economic system that doesn’t oppress other people like western capitalism.

I would also like to say that every time I hear Manny speak about his experiences in the Israeli Army, it hurts me deeply inside. Knowing that he joined the very organisation that oppresses people in Palestine is extremely offensive to me. When Manny voices his opinion about these issues it hurts me further to see such a close minded view. However, it was these very experiences in the Israeli Army, witnessing the things that he did that has brought him here today. Ten years ago Manny may not have ever come to an interfaith event… I congratulate Manny for being here, and I will do my utmost to be patient so that we can both work towards creating proper cohesion in the community that may create proper social justice on this earth, in a way that will mirror the time when Jews, Christians and Muslims lived and worked together in Spain. (source)
Well, it’s quite clear who is the wrongdoer here and who is the victim!
Islam is oppressed by us and we must pay endless 'blood money', either by memorials, a national day of remembrance, education in schools or a combination of the above.

He got lots of adulation following his speech, to which he modestly replied:

.. and i believe ALLAH swt filled me with immense patience when hearing the other presentations.. have you ever got an injection and felt the cool calming fluid run through your veins?... that is what i felt!.. that my speech flowed in such a way that it captured the audience.. it was unrelenting and strong.. yet merciful and sweet.. balanced and beautiful.. surely ALLAH does help those who struggle in His path!.. that my dearest brothers and sisters is jihad.. right then and there.. that was jihad and i felt it flowing deep in my veins.. i witnessed it.. ALLAH swt helped me in so many ways that i cannot explain alhumdulillah..

…in fact one lovely jewish woman told me after the conference that i have a speech that is very powerful.. too powerful.. in fact dangerously powerful.. so powerful that i could have a cult follow me.. she had confidence id do the right thing in life and work for the sake of ALLAH.. she even said, knowing about how i came to islam and the problems with my mother and i.. that if i ever needed a substitute mother she would be one to me!
imagine! a jewish woman! even after i had been upfront about palestine when asked and told people straight that i want an islamic state in palestine, she said this to me! (source)


What a searingly honest admission that this is all part of JIHAD.
Yet few are listening, certainly not the silly Jewish woman in the audience, grovelling before a jihadi who wants to kill all Jews.

Way back in 1993 our cat’s meat Mufti laid out Islam’s green credentials, translated by polygamophile Keysar Trad:
 
Trad
The Islamic faith lays great stress on improving the condition of the Earth at the hands of humans. All the Islamic teachings agree with logic, and do not clash with science.
Allah has made subservient to humans all animal life, bird life, plant life, water bodies, inanimate objects, and other creations. The human's duty is to deal with these as a loving and caring friend would deal with another friend, so that he can benefit from it, without stopping others from this benefit, and to put forward the common good ahead of personal benefit.
The Exalted said "Allah has created every animal of water. Of them is that which moves upon its belly and that which walks on two legs and that which walks upon four. Allah creates what He will. Lo! Allah is able to do all things." (ch24;v45).
These beings are partners to man in existence, and they deserve their own respect and have their own positions. They have been created for man, and without them, it would not be possible for man to live. How could it not be so, when vegetation are the chief producers of oxygen which humanity relies on for breathing.

Water: The exalted says " ... and We made every living thing of water ... " (ch21;v30).
Islam forbids the wastage of water, and the usage thereof without benefit.
…Islam also forbade urinating in pools of still water, or otherwise contaminating water bodies…Islam also forbids sewerage and factory outpours to go to waterways, or to the ocean as this would pollute the water and threaten marine life.
Prophet Mohammad says that any Muslim who plants or cultivates vegetation and eats from it, or another person, animal or bird, eats from it will receive a reward for it from Allah.
Therefore the cutting down of trees without strong and legitimate reasons is encroaching on the bounties of Allah, and the beauty of the environment.
In today's world, if Muslims could exert influence over the United Nations, we would require that natural resources be rationed, we would require protection of forests, we would eliminate the use of goods which destroy the atmosphere or in the very least reduce these to the most essential minimum.

The Prophet said that one who revives dead land, the land becomes his (that is if some one plants on barren land which was not owned by anybody, and is not being used, he will have legal title to this land).
The Prophet said that he who is kind and merciful towards animals, Allah will be kind and merciful towards him. Even when Killing an animal for food, the Messenger of Allah informed us to sharpen the knife well before cutting the throat of the animal, and to kill it quickly, and in a manner least distressing to the animal.
 
Even when Killing an animal for food, the Messenger of Allah informed us to sharpen the knife well before cutting the throat of the animal, and to kill it quickly.  (It takes sometimes 15 min. for a camel to die a halal death)
Islam requires kind treatment of birdlife. In one of the travels of the prophet, one of his companions removed baby pigeons from a nest, the mother hovered over his head, seeing this he inquired from his companions if they knew who had taken her chicks. He then returned the chicks to their nest in kindness and mercy to the pigeon.
Air is the property of Allah the Exalted. Hence, contaminating the air with smoke is an encroachment on nature, and a threat to the life of mankind and all other living things.
True Muslim countries would put forward to the United Nations as a primary consideration - after human rights - the protection of the atmosphere by demanding stronger resolutions against polluting the air or reducing polluting activities to the barest essentials (e.g. production of medication, essential travel, etc. and curbing the activities of maverick individuals who wish to rort the system.
You may ask; with Moslems forming such a large portion of the world's population, why is this not being done at the moment? My answer…is that, the majority of Moslems are living in third world conditions, we have had a number of generations that could not read or write, and the so called Moslem countries are being governed by oppressive semi-secular regimes that only practise Islam for a T.V Camera to fool their population. I am happy to add that as more of our brothers and sisters learn about our faith, we are quickly going back to the progressive society which will (Insha Allah) achieve these objectives. (source)

I can hardly wait for the new progressive Islam! John Wesley certainly had the measure of progressiveJohn Wesley environmentally-friendly Islam when he wrote in 1841:
Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it...have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.

So remember, Islamic green is nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Project, a 12-point strategy to establish an Islamic government on earth. It calls for the "cultural invasion" of the West, using tactics ranging from immigration, infiltration, surveillance, propaganda, protest, deception, political legitimacy and terrorism. The ideology behind the plan is inciting hatred and violence against Jewish populations around the world; the deliberate co-opting and subversion of Western public and private institutions; a policy of deliberate escalating confrontation by Muslims living in the West against their neighbors and fellow-citizens; the acceptance of terrorism as a legitimate option for achieving their ends and jihad against non-Muslims, with the ultimate goal of forcibly instituting the Islamic rule of the caliphate by shari'a in the West, and eventually the whole world.

The only green that Islam espouses is the green flag of Hamas, Gaza branch of the MB, which wants to destroy Israel for starters, and then go on to control the world. And thanks to the stupidity of some Chrisitian and Jewish progressives, they might well achieve their aims.

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.

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).
