Whingeing POM

E-mail Print PDF
W POM No, I’m not trying to insult our British readers: just to tell you about a new magazine that has hit the shelves in Australia.
Whingeing POM is Australia’s latest lifestyle publication aimed at the country’s enormous ex-pat population…the magazine is a bi-monthly, high gloss, coffee table style.

A team of well-seasoned writers collaborate each month to bring readers up to date with the latest in travel, food, fashion, business and news both here and back in the UK. The award-winning team pokes fun at ludicrous bureaucracy… (source)
Never averse to poking fun at ludicrous bureaucracy, I had high hopes the content would be hard - hitting, even a little politically incorrect. Brits I’ve met here have confided to me that they are appalled at the current situation in the UK, with the constant grovelling to Islam, which has resulted in the virtual collapse of democracy and the rule of law. Many have emigrated to escape from the tyranny and racism of forced multiculturalism and imposition of Islam’s racist worldview.

So it was with eager anticipation that I started to read an article - God’s Country - by Dominic Cadden.
Jesus had it tough first time around, dealing with all the bitching and bullying from the Pharisees and the Romans, but it’d be no picnic if he comes to Australia now.
Lots of people would be yelling His name, but paying Him no attention – they’d be talking to their footy team. The AMA would go after Him for practicing medicine without a licence…
the Department of Health would nail Him for opening graves. He’d find it hard to impress the surfers at Trigg Point with his walking on water, too. Mind you, Aussies would probably milk that wine-into-water move for all it’s worth – just until the Liquor Licensing bureau turns up after there’s a Responsible Service of Alcohol complaint.  (source)

A portrait of an arsehole So far so good – a bit of irony and humour about our irreverence and our endless red tape.

All kinds of crackpot Christian cults set up here... Even in recent years whack-job Islamic extremists use Australia as a sounding board. Take Sheikh Wahwah, who was considered so extreme that he was banned from an Islamic conference in Indonesia. Yet in 2007, he publicly backed the use of suicide bombings in Iraq and Palestine, even if they killed Australians. Imam Sheik Al Hilaly, felt OK about comparing women to uncovered meat.

Obviously, it is typical for Australians to have a problem with the idea of any superior being, whether that’s the guy next door who hit the big time, a boss, or the Queen, so the concept of an all-powerful being is a bit much for some. (“Yeah? And who made YOU the boss of ME? You think you know EVERYTHING!”) (source)
No problems here either – acknowledging our freedom of religious expression allows all kinds of whacky cults, while at the same time poking fun at our egalitarian nature. Sadly, from here the article veers steadily downhill, as the author indulges in an orgy of Christian bashing.
Christian Rightists have been using the same grassroots strategies as the Taliban… local government candidates are particularly susceptible to blackmail (read: donations) from set voting blocks made up of Christians groups, who have often blocked proposals for the development of adult businesses and, most recently, Islamic schools. The worst case was in the Camden region, south of Sydney, where there are eight Catholic schools and three Christian schools, but Muslims are as welcome as a pork chop in a mosque. (source)
Christian branch stacking!  He obviously doesn’t know about Brimbank, the most recent egregious example of local government corruption. Labour MP Justin Madden was forced to stand down his former staffer, Hakki Suleyman, after an Ombudsman report found Suleyman improperly influenced the Brimbank Council. Note: Madden was a Leftist and Suleyman was no Christian! Maybe Cadden needs to actually find out what’s happening in Australia before he writes any more articles.

A SCATHING expose of power abuse and branch stacking in Melbourne's west is today expected to place the future of a rising ALP star under a cloud.

Some of the toughest findings are expected against former councillor Ken Capar, a local lieutenant of federal MPs Bill Shorten and Senator Stephen Conroy.

Hakki Suleyman, who works in the Keilor electoral office of Planning Minister Justin Madden, is renowned locally for influence on council meetings with gestures from the public gallery.
An Ombudsman's report found that while working for Mr Madden, Mr Suleyman improperly influenced the Brimbank Council while his daughter was mayor.
Mr Suleyman, whose application to become a Justice of the Peace was signed by Attorney General Rob Hulls, also has convictions for violent offences. (source)

Cadden’s ignorance about the background to the Camden Islamic school application is breathtaking. Hakki
Yes, it’s true that many opposed the school.
A group of Camden churches and Christian ministries joined to oppose a proposed Islamic school.
In a submission to the NSW Environment Court, they claimed:
"Islam is not simply a private religion. It is driven by a powerful political agenda and it is an ideology with a plan for world domination," the letter says.
"The application to establish an Islamic school in Camden is typical of a regularly repeated pattern to form a beachhead in an area for the development of a sub-culture which, for the most part, regards its own legal system as superior to the current Australian law." They said the Muslim community would seek to dominate public space in Camden "as we have seen in Auburn, Bankstown, Lakemba and more recently Liverpool".
"The Quranic Society espouses a world view which is not compatible with broader, Australian egalitarian culture," they said.  (source)

I challenge Cadden to disprove the claims that:
 
  • Islam is driven by a political agenda with a plan for world domination
  • It takes over suburbs which then become no-go areas for non-Muslims
  • It regards its own sharia law as superior to Australian law and
  • It is not compatible with our egalitarian culture.

He implies that Camden is a case of Christian bigotry at play, contrasting this with the jovial reaction of those fun-loving Muslims:

Yes, apparently Allah is as fond of taking the piss as the next deity when things get out of hand. ‘Uncle Sam’, an Aussie Muslim comedian, responded to the Camden fiasco by running for mayor on an Islamic extremist platform.
"I will build 10 Islamic schools, 10 mosques, 10 halal butchers and 10 halal taxi ranks! And we will make it the first Islamic state in Australia!" Most saw the joke, but some people found it hard to tell after the ‘Reverend’ Fred Nile, the NSW Senator and leader of the Christian Democratic Party, had just the previous year called for a 10-year ban on Muslim immigration.
Ayatollah Fred Nile has been in State Parliament since 1981, harassing homosexuals, stamping out smoking, gambling and non-violent erotica, while keeping the really fun stuff, like opening Parliament with prayer (to his god only).
Now not everyone agrees with Fred Nile, but many Australians (and expat Brits!) are anxious that Australia not go the way of the UK in introducing sharia, with its apartheid system of law which relegates non-Muslims to second class citizens.  Decent Aussies oppose racism and supremacism, which is why we oppose Islam and would support a moratorium on further Muslim immigration. This would also help those Muslims who are trapped by Islam and unable to leave (apostasy carries the death penalty in this jovial, fun-loving religion!), as well as Muslim women who are the main victims of Islam’s oppression.
 
Just like YOU!!! But .... treated unfairly!!!

 
As for harassing homosexuals, would Cadden prefer the treatment meted out to them in Islamic paradises, where they are brutally tortured and killed, to Nile’s expressing disapproval of their lifestyle?

Of course, no self-respecting article would be complete without bashing John Howard and the Liberal Party:
Former Prime Minister Howard and his Deputy, Peter Costello, each had meetings with an obscure sect called The Exclusive Brethren while in office. The Exclusive Brethren, essentially believe the world is evil, so they cut themselves away from it except to screw the rest of us for money. They have their own schools free from the contamination of non-Brethren and the devilish influence of computers...
For a Christian sect to have its own school is not on, yet Cadden defends the right of the Quranic Society to run a school which preaches hatred of infidels and is so concerned about contamination by infidels that it won’t share toilets or prayer space at our public universities. What planet is Cadden on?

No article would be complete without bashing the Catholics:
Australians may try to lord it over you by boasting about their nation’s separation of church and state. This is rubbish, of course. Australians were in such a hurry to get together a Constitution that the nation’s fathers forgot about things such as separation of church and state. That’s why a High Court challenge against the Federal and NSW funding of the World Youth Day in Sydney last year came to nothing. In a strange hypocrisy that typifies religion in Australia, the Pope’s major masses took place at a horse track. Worse, the Premier at the time, Morris Lemma, a Catholic, rushed through ‘annoyance laws’ so that $5,500 fines could be slapped on anyone who handed out condoms to pilgrims, or politely invited them to a gangbang. Even Catholics were embarrassed. It was like Jesus calling for a police escort on Palm Sunday.  (source)
It’s easy to rubbish a group of young Catholics, where there was no violence or loutish behaviour, as these well-behaved law-abiding youngsters would never retaliate. Try heaping the same amount of scorn on a group of young Muslims meeting, and see if you come out unscathed!
J. Madden
I hate to whinge, but rarely have I read such uninformed reporting.
 
The danger Islam poses to our free and democratic country is ignored, with Cadden implying that only a tiny minority of extremists are a problem, while the rest are a rip roaring rollicking lot. Contrast this with his take on Christians, who he seems to consider corrupt, right wing, racist and hypocritical.

I don’t believe most British expats would share his views.
I suspect hat’s why they’ve decided to make their home in Australia.

Australia is a great country that welcomes all those who share our egalitarian values, based on Judeo-Christian principles. If you prefer Sharia, best to go back to the UK!

Sharia has brought the UK to its knees.
Let’s keep Australia sharia-free.
Say NO to SHARIA!

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.

History - Tolerance Myths

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.
