July 09 Dhimwit

E-mail Print PDF

First, heartiest congratulations to George Negus, our June dhimwhit, for his richly-deserved award. Commiserations to Geraldine Doogue, who came a very close second, but couldn't quite reach the pinnacle.

For our July dhimwhit, we have 6 worthy candidates.
But sadly, only one can win.

It's up to you, dear readers, to cast your votes and decide which one it will be. Here are the nominations:The University of Sydney

 

1. The University of Sydney, which welcomed HRH Prince Turki Al Faisal from Saudi Arabia, and a delegation from the King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies to discuss options for “further engagement in Saudi research and teaching programs .”

The Obama administration is likely to uphold the Saudi's  immunity from U.S. civil litigation, but even if a lawsuit by families of the victims of September 11 does not go ahead, recently released documents may shed light on long-alleged connections between al-Qaeda and the Saudi royal family. They show that the International Islamic Relief Organization, a charity  backed by Saudi royalty, supported terrorist organizations until 2007,  another charity, the Saudi High Commission for Aid to Bosnia, provided money and supplies to al-Qaeda in the 1990s, while an Afghani testified that an emissary for  Saudi prince Turki handed a check for one billion Saudi riyals (about $267 million) to a top Taliban leader in 1998.

 
Still, it would be impolite to let terror links prevent the University cosying up to our Saudi friends.
Prince Turki was in good company at a dinner party held in his honor by the Islamic Council, attended as it was by 2 uber dhimmis -former PM Malcolm Fraser and Multicultural Minister Laurie Ferguson, - where Turki emphasized the values and meanings of moderation and dialogue in Islam and the fight against extremism.
 
Yes, I think we're all familiar with these values and meanings! And in exchange for our expertise, we are given sharia – how's that for reciprocity!
 
Also this month, the University held an Islamophobia Conference, Challenging Islamophobia, so that academics could preach (at taxpayers' expense)  about our evil ways, and suggest how we can  work towards a “socially cohesive society” and  live in a mutlicultural paradise.

So for these two valiant efforts at appeasement and advancing  stealth jihad, Sydney university is a worthy nominee.

Julia Gillard2.  Julia Gillard, Deputy Prime Minister

Gillard recently went with a delegation to Israel, using the opportunity to support jihadis. Speaking at a news conference in Ramallah, she said Australia supported a Palestinian state next to a secure Israel, and backed Obama's insistence that Israel freeze all new settlement activity, at the same time announcing that Australia would  provide $10 million additional funding to the Palestinian Authority, saying "We do have concerns about humanitarian issues and we're acting on those concerns." Would these  humanitarian issues include Palestinians' treatment of women and non-Muslims, or is she just empathising with jihadis ' sense of outrage when Israel decides to defend itself?
Asked whether Australia would accept Hamas having a role in any Palestinian government, she said:  “our view is that Hamas should accept the principles laid down by the Quartet - in particular, it must renounce violence...but there was reason to believe there were people of good will on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict who wanted to see an acceleration of dialogue.
 
What could have given her these “reasons to believe” in Palestinian goodwill? Maybe the Hamas Charter, which calls for the destruction of Israel and killing Jews everywhere, or the fact that “moderate” PA's  law states that “Islam is the official religion of Palestine” and that “the principles of Islamic law (Sharia) are the primary source of lawmaking.” or that any Palestinian lands must be Judenrein?  And  did it occur to Gillard that rewarding terrorism with $10 million might be an inducement for more terrorism?
 
Labour have now given about $60 million Australian taxpayers money to 'Palestinians' since being elected.
Gillard seems impervious to Palestinian terrorism or how they treat their women, with honour killing,  child marriage, beating etc, or of Hamas's brutality to its PA rivals, whom they tossed off roofs or otherwise killed, or of how recently Muslim parents tortured and killed their 15 year old son because they thought he was 'colluding' with Israel! Naturally Gillard is too polite to mention the desecration of churches, burning of Christian homes and businesses, rape and abuse of Christian females.
 
After all, good dhimmi Gillard knows Muslims behave like this because their “humanitarian concerns” aren't being met. We must just try harder to please them.


 
3. Laurie Ferguson, Parliamentary Secretary for Multicultural Affairs

In the Rudd Government's first statement on Muslims, Laurie said it was time to tackle the myths surrounding Islam, arguing religious leaders were not representative of the mainstream Muslim community.
"We can't prescribe how the Islamic community is to organise itself," he said. "But we certainly must make sure that the fact there are international tensions and terrorist issues doesn't kind of stereotype the whole community in Australia." Laurie Ferguson
It was Laurie who introduced Tariq Ramadan as the main speaker at a Griffith University conference. When Muslim and Jewish leaders expressed their concern about him, Laurie dismissed those fears, and described the American government’s preventing Ramadan's entry into the United States in 2004 as "over the top."
 
Laurie sees his mission as making Australians feel comfortable with Muslims, to allay whatever fears or anxieties may have been created in them by Muslim behavior, and  “to tackle the myths surrounding Islam.”
Despite his zeal to reassure us,  there seems little indication that Laurie  has read or studied Islam, with its  killing or subjugation of the non-Muslim populations, or that, as part of his preparation for introducing Tariq Ramadan, he read Caroline Fourest’s Brother Tariq or Paul Berman’s excellent 15-page essay on Ramadan in The New Republic.

But  never fear, because most people in Australia, like most Infidels everywhere, also remain blissfully ignorant of Islam’s texts, tenets and attitudes, so can be easily persuaded that Islam is really really nice.
And who can deny Laurie the pleasures of attending dinners with the likes of Prince Turki at Sydney University? After all, that's just one of the perks of being a dhimwhit!

After locals successfully lobbied Camden Council to reject an application to build an Islamic school, in  a victory against Islamic radicalism, Laurie  expressed alarm...”There's lack of knowledge, lack of interface connection and basic ignorance coming into it ... we need to work with this council to erode this kind of bigotry in that community."
He hoped federally funded programs would help the community learn about multiculturalism. "There was a part of the campaign which was based on anti-Islamic xenophobia and that's pretty worrying. These people should worry that when they start complaining about treatment of people overseas, including Christian minorities in the Middle East ... this is a bit hypocritical," he said.
If Laurie can't see that the persecution of non-Muslim minorities worldwide is precisely why we don't want an Islamic school spreading sacralised hatred and persecution of kuffars, then he truly deserves the title of dhimwhit!


Chris Bowen4. Chris Bowen
“Who ?”, I hear you say. None other than Rudd's new wunderkind, who  has an ambitious plan for Sydney to lure Islamic finance “in a quest to beat the global recession and attract wealth and jobs.”
 
Yes, more sharia. That should solve all our problems!
 
Bowen, 36, becomes the youngest member of the 20-strong cabinet, winning the dual post of Minister for Financial Services, Superannuation and Corporate Law, and Minister for Human Services.
 
He said Sydney was under-selling itself as a financial services hub for Asia. "I think there's great opportunities such as Islamic finance. The majority of the world's Islamic population lives in Asia, and Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are trying to corner this market for themselves and I think Australia can play a role. Even if we only take a small percentage of the market it could generate a lot of wealth and a lot of jobs in Australia."
Bowen said Islamic finance investors were not allowed to earn interest but could make a profit. They also did not invest in alcohol, gambling or weapons.
 
Who could possibly object to such a morally superior financial system. Not dhimmi Bowen, that's for sure, who doesn't seem to know or care that sharia finance was a 1920s invention of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan Al-Banna, to enable Muslims to fulfill financial jihad.
 
 
5. Leunig, Al Age Cartoonist and radical political commentator
Greg Sheridan, in The Australian, highlighted the missing actor in the tragic story of Iran since the stolen election of June 12 - the Western human rights lobby. He asked “where are the Western demonstrators?” and took to task the “moral middle class” who profess deep concern about human rights, concluding that “many Western human rights organisations, and many of the most self-congratulatory and morally vain posturers, are not interested in human rights at all, but in advancing a soft Left sectarian agenda.” Michael Leunig
 
“In this parallel universe all crimes are a subset of imperialism and the only true villains are the US, Israel and, for us, Australia.” He singled out Michael Leunig, “who once drew a cartoon so morally obtuse, stupid and offensive that it was happily accepted by an Iranian newspaper in a competition for cartoons that would offend Jews,  but who is apparently unmoved to draw an image in sympathy with young Iranian democrats? “
Readers may remember that Leunig also took a swipe at Christianity, portraying  two Roman soldiers looking  at a large wooden cross, with the caption “I suppose we can either sell it on E-bay or put it in storage until the Mufti’s been processed.” To compare the situation of the Mufti, who has been accused of funnelling money to terrorists, and has exhibited extreme views against women, Australians and non-Muslims, with the suffering of Christ, is outrageous.
 

 
This bold and fearless cartoonist delights in anti-Christian and anti-Semitic cartoons,  secure in the knowledge that, however offended the Jews and Christians might be, they will not harm him.
 
Bold and fearless he might seem when attacking other religions, yet seems curiously shy of criticising Islam.
 
In a touch of irony that would be lost on Leunig,  Iranian dissident Arash Irandoost calls on his “Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters” to help them.
"Iran needs your help more than ever now. And we will be eternally grateful. Please help opposition television and radio stations which are blocked and being jammed by the Islamic Republic (Nokia and Siemens) resume broadcast to Iran. There is a total media blackout and Iranians inside Iran for the most part are not aware of their brave brothers and sisters fighting and losing their lives daily. And the unjust treatment and brutal massacre of the brave Iranians in the hands of the mullah's paid terrorist Hamas and Hizbullah gangs are not seen by the majority of the Iranians. Please help in any way you can to allow these stations resume broadcasting to Iran.
Disgusting Cartoon
"And, please remember that we will remember, as you have remembered Cyrus the Great's treatment of you in your time of need," Irandoost concludes, signing his blogged call for help "Your Iranian Brothers and Sisters!"
 
Leunig, are you listening? Do you ever think you are fighting on the wrong side?
 
Wendy WallerOr maybe it's easier and less scary to attack Jews and Christians, who  might complain, but will never threaten violence. Could it be that Dhimwhit Leunig, not afraid to make bold statements against soft targets, is a COWARD?


6. Wendy Waller, Liverpool Mayor, who without consulting with her constituents, approved the building of an Islamic School in Hoxton Park. When interviewed by radio presenter Alan Jones, she gave as the reason for not having any public consultation - that she wanted to avoid 'prejudice', and admitted that virtually NO students to attend the school live in the local area.  
 

The largely migrant area of Hoxton Park will now have to deal with an educational institution which teaches the Qu’ran and sharia. Pity the migrants who came to Australia to experience freedom, often from the persecution of Islam, to find they are living next the the very people who tyrannized them. Still, at least Wendy has made sure she hasn't offended Islam, and that's what really counts!

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.

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).
