Twins and Twinning

E-mail Print PDF

Twins are very much in the news since conjoined Bangladeshi twins Trishna and Krishna were separated in a gruelling 32-hour operation at the Royal Children's Hospital, Australia, earlier this week. The Children First Foundation raised almost $250,000 to care for the twins, who were brought to Melbourne for treatment from an orphanage in Dhaka, Bangladesh two years ago. Amazingly, MRI scans revealed the girls had not suffered brain damage during this delicate and complicated surgery.


What a tribute to the skill of our surgeons and other medical personnel, whose expertise and years of training gave these little girls a chance of life. Thanks also should go to all who reached out to the twins and gave generously of their money and time.

An event like this encapsulates all that is exceptional about the West, where those with ability and determination can excel in their chosen area, regardless of their ethnic background or gender. It is also a testament to the altruism of Australians, who are quick to help those less fortunate.

From a good news story about TWINS to a bad news story about TWINNING, a seemingly new concept dreamed up by the Islamic propaganda machine:

 A hundred mosques and synagogues throughout North America and Europe took part in the second edition of twinning. The annual event involves meetings between local Muslim and Jewish congregations aimed at launching joint activities. The New York-based Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, founded by Rabbi Marc Schneier, has been organizing the event, which this year focused on saving the environment, protecting immigrants, combating anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, and fighting poverty. The Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the World Jewish Congress and the Canadian Association of Jews and Muslims supported the initiative.
"For generations there have been a series of misunderstandings by Jews and Muslims on what the other religious community believes and practices," said Schneier. "These misperceptions and other societal and political factors have unfortunately led to tensions between our two communities. "
“Not only do we share a common faith, but we share a common fate,” he said.

Does Rabbi Schneier have any concept of what Islam mandates for all Jews everywhere?
Has he even bothered to read the qur'an and hadiths, and the hateful passages they contain about Jews?
How can he equate anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, a termed coined by Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. Daniel Pipes explains:

... the neologism Islamophobia was launched in 1996 by a self-proclaimed "Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia."

Hizb ut-Tahrir's manipulation of "Stop Islamophobia" betrays the fraudulence of this word. ..."Ostensibly the campaign's goal is to fight anti-Muslim prejudice in the wake of the London bombings," but... the real agenda is to spread anti-Semitic, anti-Hindu, anti-Sikh, anti-homosexual, and anti-female attitudes, as well as to foment resentment of Western influence.

...Accusations of Islamophobia,... are intended "to silence critics of Islam, or even Muslims fighting for reform of their communities." 
(source)

Rabbi Schneier certainly has a profound misunderstanding as to what Islam believes if he thinks Jews and Muslims share a common faith. Maybe he should study some of Bill Warner's excellent material. Here are some extracts of him being interviewed by Jamie Glazov for Front Page Magazine :

We are ignorant about the doctrine of Islam... Who can find a single rabbi or minister who has read the Koran, Sira and Hadith? 
...What accounts for the almost psychotic aversion to knowledge about Islam? Beyond fear is the realization that political Islam is profoundly foreign to us.
 Let’s examine the ethical basis of our civilization. All of our politics and ethics are based upon a unitary ethic.
On the basis of the Golden Rule—the equality of human beings—we have created democracy, ended slavery and treat women and men as political equals. So the Golden Rule is a unitary ethic. All people are to be treated the same. All religions have some version of the Golden Rule except Islam.
The term “human being” has no meaning inside of Islam. There is no such thing as humanity, only the duality of the believer and unbeliever. Look at the ethical statements found in the Hadith. A Muslim should not lie, cheat, kill or steal from other Muslims. But a Muslim may lie, deceive or kill an unbeliever if it advances Islam.

Muslims are to be treated one way and unbelievers another way. The closest Islam comes to a universal statement of ethics is that the entire world must submit to Islam. After Mohammed became a prophet, he never treated an unbeliever the same as a Muslim. Islam denies the truth of the Golden Rule.
By the way, this dualistic ethic is the basis for jihad. The ethical system sets up the unbeliever as less than human and therefore, it is easy to kill, harm or deceive the unbeliever.
There is no compromise with dualistic ethics. In short, Islamic politics, ethics and logic cannot be part of our civilization. Islam does not assimilate, it dominates. There is never any “getting along” with Islam. Its demands never cease and the demands must be met on Islam’s terms: submission.

Islam put over a million Europeans into slavery. These are things that we do not want to face.
Jews don’t want to acknowledge the history of political Islam, because they were dhimmis, second class citizens or semi-slaves, just like the Christians. Jews like to recall how they were advisors and physicians to powerful Muslims, but no matter what the Jew did or what position he held, he was still a dhimmi. There is no compromise between being equal and being a dhimmi
Why should a Hindu want to recall the shame of slavery and the destruction of their temples and cities? After Hindu craftsmen built the Taj Mahal, the Muslim ruler had their right hands cut off so that they could not build anything as beautiful for anyone else. The practice of suttee, the widow throwing herself on the husband’s funeral pyre, came about as a response to the rape and brutality of the Islamic jihad as it sweep over ancient Hindustan.

Blacks don’t want to face the fact that it was a Muslim who rounded up their ancestors in Africa to wholesale to the white slave trader. The Arab is the true master of the African. Blacks can’t accept the common bond they share with whites: that both Europeans and Africans were slaves under Islam. Blacks like to imagine Islam is their counterweight to white power, not that Islam has ruled them for 1400 years.

Approximately 270 million nonbelievers died over the last 1400 years for the glory of political Islam. These are the Tears of Jihad which are not taught in any school.

Multiculturalism is bankrupt against Islam’s demand for every civilization to submit. The culture of tolerance collapses in the face of the sacred intolerance of dualistic ethics.

Political Islam has annihilated every culture it has invaded or immigrated to...The host culture disappears and becomes extinct.

We must learn the doctrine of political Islam to survive. The doctrine is very clear that all forms of force and persuasion may and must be used to conquer us. Islam is a self-declared enemy of all unbelievers.

As for sharing a common fate, has the rabbi no knowledge of history? Does he not know the fate of the Jews of Medina. What about the fate of Jews in Arab lands where they had lived since ancient times? Schneier's ignorance is astounding.

Twinning has become trendy in Australia among the intelligentsia and other useful idiots, who seem unperturbed that their councils are pairing up with terrorists:

Several councils in Sydney's inner-west have passed motions accusing Israel of war crimes for its assault on Hamas strongholds in Gaza.

One of the councils, Marrickville, established a sister city relationship in 2007 with the West Bank town of Bethlehem, whose council is controlled by proscribed terror group Hamas.

According to a motion passed by Marrickville Council, Israel is guilty of "the deliberate destruction on (sic) infrastructure and attacks on United Nations facilities".
 
The motion says Israel should be forced to negotiate directly with Hamas, despite the terror group's declared intention to destroy the Jewish state. It calls for the immediate closure of all Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories.

A motion passed by neighbouring Canterbury council "acknowledges the pain and suffering many Palestinian residents are experiencing as a result of the recent bombing by Israel and condemns all violence, and is particularly concerned with this disproportionate offensive of Israel".

NSW Jewish Board of Deputies chief Vic Alhadeff said the motions ignored the fact the war between Israel and Gaza was the result of Hamas firing 8000 mortars into Israeli civilian areas "while using Palestinian civilians as human shields".

"The motion also misrepresents the test of proportionality in international law. What is a country to do in the face of sustained attacks on its population? What government would not act to protect its civilians?" 
(source)

You have to hand it to the Palestinian groups: they are well organised and are well financed. Here is some of their propaganda:

The Sydney council of Marrickville has now entered into a Sister City relationship with Bethlehem, occupied Palestinian city and birthplace of Christ.The Mayor of Bethlehem, Dr Victor Batarseh and a delegation from Bethlehem are currently in Sydney to seal the deal and it was a pleasure to help welcome them with Sydney’s Palestinian community and many others in the general Middle East community here. (Next campaign: twinning Hebron with Leichhardt).

While Christians, Muslims and Jews have coexisted for centuries in Palestine, occupied Bethlehem is being subject to strangulation by the Israeli government: two thirds of the population in Bethlehem lives below the poverty line and unemployment is higher than 60%.

Last Christmas I noted the Mayor of Bethlehem’s words -

  " the birthplace of Jesus Christ is in its worst economic, political and tourist conditions in those 2,000 years. The dire situation is due to the procedures and practices of the occupation that continues to increase in severity in and around the city.

    The so-called security fence on our land has forced large numbers of people to leave their homes and move. The conditions are so deplorable that the practices are clearly intended to vacate the land of its people.

The Apartheid Wall eats up a good deal of Bethlehem, isolating some 7,000 dunams of its territory that includes the entire northern region. The Wall has also now severed the single diocese of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Pilgrims cannot go from one to the other, despite the fact that they are only twenty minutes apart.

As Bethlehem Mayor Dr. Victor Batarseh testifies; “This has had a negative impact on everyone and a catastrophic effect on many. Hundreds of farmers have lost their lands and without that income the tourist industry becomes even more important, but that has suffered as well.”

In a recent letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury who recently visited Bethlehem and condemned the Wall, Palestinian Bishop Riad Abu El Assal writes:

    To us, the gentle coexistence of Christians and Muslims is a source of strength; indeed, we regard ourselves as a beacon to the wider Middle East and, through it, the rest of the world. The crisis facing Christians here is entirely due to the Israeli occupation, which, in recent years, has seen entire communities imprisoned behind the Israeli-built wall.

Leila Sansour of Open Bethlehem similarly writes:

    … Christians and Muslims form a single community in Bethlehem. It is perhaps the most important lesson — after the incarnation itself — that Bethlehem can offer the world. We are a multifaith community in a region that needs more such examples. Muslims and Christians have lived alongside each other for centuries, and, if we are given the chance, we will continue to do so. We are not being squeezed out by Islamism, but by economic hardship as a result of annexation of land, and entrapment behind a wall whose existence shames humanity.

So let us all applaud the skills of our professionals, and hope the twins continue to progress and go on to lead a happy and productive life.

But a big thumbs down for the Islamist propaganda machine which brought the deceptive and morally objectionable concept of twinning to the West.  And an even bigger thumbs down for  Marrickville, which bought into the propaganda of "the gentle coexistence of Christians and Muslims " in the Middle East. Try telling that to the Copts or other indigenous Christian groups from that area - if you can find any!

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).
