Sotoning in Aceh See Islamic stoning in nearby Aceh, Indonesia
 
Yes sir, you Islamic purists, don’t go to those beaches, bars and restaurants in Bali!   Now you can enjoy real ‘Pure’ Islamic entertainment in Aceh which has just passed sharia laws including stoning to death for adulterers and many lashes for a range of acts we wouldn’t regard a worthy of violent punishment  - but we’re so immoral!.

Of course stoning and amputation is practised in some of the islands anyway.   My friend and neighbour was lucky enough to discover this after a trip to an island near Malaysia and a nosey peek at what the crowd of Indonesians were watching following the arrival of the imam who pronounced judgement and a woman was stoned and others had bits amputated.

Remember, Aceh was hard hit in the tsunami of 2004 but rather than be grateful for the aid, not to mention fortune in money given by others, including Australians, Mr Arafin, an Islamist Prosperous Justice Party MP who voted in the sharia laws, believes:

“that the influence of foreigners – many of them aid workers who DESCENDED on Aceh after the tsunami in 2004- was causing moral degradation”  (1).

It was noted that some disagreed with measures such as stoning and wanted to reduce the number of lashes which can be up to 100-400  (1, 3).   Mr Arafin responded

"but that is not possible as based the law on the Koran and hadith so you cannot decrease it.”(1).  TRUE!

Aceh has of course had sharia in some form since given ‘autonomy’ in 2002.   Gradually it has increased the laws and practises Islam requires and is a devout Islamic area.  

Stoning is back!!

In Aceh laws require all women to wear headscaves (1)
There are public canings for gamblers and punishments for  drinking alcohol (1).
Homosexuality can get you 8 years in prison which is lucky as my Islamic law book also sets stoning to death for those who commit sodomy (2).

A sharia police force has been created but many of the provisions of Islamic law have not been enforced due to widespread resentment.    In recent elections, hardliners performed poorly (1).  

Wow does that mean there is some realisation that there is something wrong with allah’s laws and Islam?   

 

But you cannot be a true Muslim unless you follow ‘the way’, the sharia!   The true Muslims can of course always use a little stronger ‘persuasion’ fully supported in Islam’s text and laws, against those who dare to impede the absolute control of Islam.    While a human rights group might oppose the laws, the Laws are fully supported by other Muslim groups in Indonesia:   clearly there is a clash between allah’s perfect laws and human rights!

Ma'ruf Amin, the head of the Indonesian Council of Ulema, Indonesia's top Islamic body, welcomed the new hardline law.
"The Council supports sharia law in areas where it is allowed, like Aceh, which has special autonomy. It's not a matter of good or bad.
"For Muslims, sharia law is the best and can be implemented anytime, anywhere. As long as there is agreement from everyone, there's no problem," Amin said. (3)

Why don’t the Indonesians return to their more humane Buddhist and Hindu past!
Sharia Police
Aren’t you just thrilled that our nearest neighbour is becoming more and more ‘pure’ Islamic style.   Yes sir, those rotten European colonialists slowed down the progress of lovely Islam which violently took over Indonesia in the 16th century but it’s returning.   There are unending reports of vicious attacks on Christians, Hindus, churches, businesses etc  with Christians driven out of many areas  -remember the beheaded school girls (2005); the slaughter, forced conversions and forced clitoridectomies of  Christian females of all ages in the Maluku islands and surrounds (2000-2001)  (Yes Muslim Indonesians and Islam supports clitoridectomy see Clitoridectomy; Wikipedia; The Age and Islam or  Female Genital Mutilation  -has quotes from Indonesian Muslim groups; also other articles this site)!  

Aren’t you proud that hundreds of millions of Australia’s aid went to rebuild or build Islamic schools in Aceh and elsewhere and we’re still giving! (see Should Rudd Support Madrassas? 18/6/08 this site which details Islamic abuses in Indonesia.)            

Yes the money’s well spent on those heart warming sharia police who keep the people so pure with their vigilance and resulting displays of public humiliation of offenders and state-sanctioned violence.   Remember in Islam purity and morality isn’t based on reason  it’s simply a measure of how well you adhere to Islam’s dictates...which are full of acts we regard as repulsive, sadistic and grossly immoral.     Islamic morality is violently enforced on all –is this moral?
 

One 2006 article notes the enthusiasm for sharia as people gather in droves to watch its enforcement-

“The scene is always the same, and it has been enacted at least 140 times in squares and market places in front of mosques, from the towering minarets of Banda Aceh, the provincial capital, to humble village places of worship.
The transgressor can be a man accused of gambling or drinking alcohol. But if it is a woman guilty of wearing “improper” clothing or being caught in proximity to a man, there is a particular ritual to the punishment. Arrestin a sinner
She is dressed in white robes and veiled. Policemen escort her up on to a stage erected before a jeering crowd, which, witnesses say, is usually almost exclusively male.
Forced to kneel, the woman waits while a masked man ascends the platform. He is carrying a cane with a curved handle designed to give the inflictor of God’s punishment a better grip. From the loudspeakers, a man’s voice sonorously recites the appropriate religious chastisement. Then he begins to count. With each number, the cane descends with a vicious lash.
According to witnesses, male onlookers often roar in delight and hurl pious imprecations at the victims, working themselves up to a pitch of excitement.
In one collective punishment last summer, four women denounced for gambling were given between six and 10 lashes. One passed out as she was dragged off the stage.” (5)

And

"But audiences throughout the Indonesian archipelago watched the televised flogging of a man convicted of drinking beer. He collapsed after seven of the 40 prescribed strokes and officials said he would receive the remaining 33 when he recovered.
The example of Aceh has attracted fundamentalists from elsewhere in Indonesia, who see it as a blueprint for their own localitiCaning in Aceh es.” (5)

Hash, intolerant, conservative Islam is already spreading in Indonesia and we are still subsidising it as Rudd gives more millions and we even train the Indonesian military!!

“The Indonesian Islamist cleric Abu Bakar Bashir, who was released from prison in July 2006 after having been charged with complicity in the Bali terror attacks of 2002, gave an interview to Al-Jazeera in which he outlined his plans for establishing an Islamic state in Indonesia. Bashir attacked democracy and the West, and called on Muslims to wage jihad against the ruling regimes in the Muslim world. The interview appeared on August 21, 2006, on Al-Jazeera's English-language website.”   Bashir stated    “there is no democracy in Islam”  and there “can be no Islam without  Ji had”  and "We Need to Go on Jihad Against Our Own Hyprocrite Governments" (4)

No doubt the Age will be filled with Muslims eg Waleed Aly and members of the ICV who will tell us there is no stoning in the Koran and neglect to mention the immense amount of text in the hadith where Mohammad criticised the Jews who nolonger stoned and reinstated stoning, stoning people including women, to death.    Stoning is fully part of sharia as is amputation and flogging  (please see Mohammad Demands Stoning: 9/7/09 this site which has plenty of text and laws showing Islam’s full endorsement of stoning.)
 
Indeed the only surprise was a claimed restriction on paedophilia which is strange as the Koran, hadith, Mohammad’s example and sharia fully endorse the marriage of tiny girls and sex whenever the ‘husband’ who has the right to enjoy his wife in any way he likes from her head to her toes, deems intercourse is OK. (text and laws can be found in many articles on this site eg Massive worldwide paedophile ring untouched or  Aspects of Child Abuse in Islam or Child marriage etc)

It should be noted that The Age, early version had an article titled ‘Aceh MPs adopt stoning penalty’ written by Tom allard and Karuni Rompies  p7 15/9/09 which noted that the laws were sharia and complied with Islam’s text   However the later morning version had lost this article completely and instead had a tiny section ‘in brief’ p 8 which failed to mention that this was sharia law and complied with Islam’s text.

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.

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).
