A Reply from the ACT Chief Minister

E-mail Print PDF

Jonathon Ronald Stanhope (born 29 April 1951) is the current, and longest serving, Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory, representing the Australian Labor Party. He is the only ACT Chief Minister to have governed with a majority in the ACT assembly (The ACT Labor Party achieving this between 2004 and 2008). Stanhope was born in Gundagai, New South Wales but moved to Canberra to study at the Australian National University. After graduating in law, he became a legal officer for the public service and a staffer for a number of senior ALP figures, including former federal leader Kim Beazley.

On the 16th December 2009 we wrote to Jon Stanhope, the Chief Minister for the ACT in relation to the pending approval of a new Islamic school. We received his reply on Wednesday 10th March 2010.

Our letter is given below.

Dear Mr Stanhope,
We are surprised and disappointed at your approval of a new Islamic school for Canberra.
Do you realise that unlike Christian schools where students are taught to LOVE their fellow man, Muslims are taught to HATE anyone who is NOT a Muslim?

Muslims have a doctrine called “Al Wara wal Bara” which means they must HATE what Allah hates, which is over 20 million Australians who are NOTMuslim.

Do you realise that:

1)      Muslims are taught to HATE non-muslims, or over 20 million Australians;
2)      Muslims are taught to NOT befriend non-muslims, or over 20 million Australians;
3)      Muslims are taught to NOT help any non-muslim, or over 20 million Australians?

Do you realise that by approving this Islamic school you are entrenching APARTHEID into Australia for future generations?
Do you realise that Muslims practise Apartheid by demanding separate toilets, separate washrooms, separate prayer rooms, separate dining rooms with Halal food, separate swimming areas so that they  are NOT contaminated by over 20 million of us Australian infidels?

Do you realise that Muslims believe that they are at WAR with Australia and must strive to overthrow democracy and replace it by their 7th century barbaric Sharia Law?

Do you realise that Sharia Law approves of child marriage, polygamy, concubines, female genital mutilation, slavery, stoning women to death for adultery, beheading for major crimes and cutting off hands and feet for minor crimes?

Is that what you want for a future Australia?

 

We challenge you to look seriously at the 57 Islamic countries around the world where treatment of non-muslims is appalling and where these countries fill the bottom positions for gender equity according to the 2009 World Economic Forum poll.
 

If you have approved the new Islamic school understanding what Islam
stands for, then SHAME ON YOU.

Yours Sincerely

Here is the body of the Minister’s response.

Thank you for your letter dated 16th December 2009 regarding the Islamic School of Canberra. I apologise for the delay in responding to you.

The ACT is a jursdiction that respects and upholds the rights of individuals. The ACT Government’s position is that human rights are necessary for individuals to live lives of dignity and value.Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of individuals, including the rights to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, improves the welfare of the whole community.

It is clear from your letter that you do not share these views. I personally find your views abhorrent.

Yours Sincerely,
Jon Stanhope MLA

Actually, Chief Minister, nowhere in our letter were there any personal views of ours, only facts and observations about Islam.

Please prove me wrong on any of the above statements!

Maybe the Chief Minister needs a holiday. We would happily provide Mr Stanhope with a free trip to the lovely Maldives, or even Dafur, if he prefers an African experience.

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.

A great tragedy of the Islamic control of our universities and political correctness plus the fear of extreme violence if anyone dares question the roots and claims of Islam is ...that nobody dares question the roots and claims of Islam!!!  I want to stimulate interest and offer this summary of information on Mecca from (LINK) which discusses some problems with Muslim claims in a comparison of evidence supporting Islam/Christianity.
