BDS Hate Choir at Myer

E-mail Print PDF

Tis the season to be jolly, and in many department stores around Australia at this time of the year, you can expect a surprise visit by a merry group of carollers singing Christmas carols. And so it was on Saturday morning when we were browsing the Myer Centre in Queen street, Brisbane. I found myself standing at the Seacret cosmetics stand admiring the Dead Sea products from this Israeli company, when suddenly, there they were. I turned to see a Santa dressed in the traditional red garb with white bushy beard and ringing a bell. With him were a merry group wearing green shirts and red and white caps, with a man holding a flag with Christmas colours of red, green and white. But this was to be a different experience.

Muslims, of course, believe that Jesus was born under a date palm and not in a manger, so it comes as no surprise that the Irish Palestinian Support Committee is selling Christmas cards like the one shown here, with Mary in Palestinian colours holding baby Jesus, and obviously, not in a manger. In many western countries, traditional Christmas is giving way to the more culturally sensitive “Winterval” so as not to offend the Religion of Peace. Then we noticed that the leader of this group was a man who in PC language we can only describe as being “of Mid Eastern extraction”, and his group were none other than the virulent Israel hating BDS group that is now making its presence felt in our capital cities.

In this article, we will describe our exchange with the BDS group, or Boycott, Divest, Sanctions group whose sole attention is on hating Israel and claiming that Israel has no right to exist.

Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus at Macys

You don’t have to be a Christian or have any faith at all to appreciate the exceptional music of Handel in his classic Christmas piece called “Messiah”. And from this suite comes the famous Hallelujah Chorus which is performed many times all around the world, especially at Christmas. But if it wasn’t for the Polish king, Jan Sobeiski III, who defeated the Mohammedan armies at the Gates of Vienna in 1683, we may never have experienced this inspiring music, or similar pieces from Bach,Haydn, Mozart or Beethoven. In the Holy Hadith or Hadith Qudsi, Mohammed claims to have come to destroy all musical instruments and of course, Allah will pour molten lead into the ears of anyone who listens to a songstress. But the brave shoppers at Macys department store in New York did not care about Mohammed’s threat on 30th October 2010.

Random Act of Culture by Opera Company of Philadelphia

How uplifting and moving was that! Congratulations to the wonderful people from the Opera Company of Philadelphia for performing Handel’s Christmas classic. Of course, you will never hear that in the shopping malls in Gaza or downtown Dubai.

BDS Hate Israel Chorus at Myer

After watching the extraordinary performance at Macys which was posted on the Andrew Bolt Blog earlier, our expectations were high for a repeat performance at Myer.

Did we experience a “Random Act of Culture” from the BDS group?

NO, but we did get a rousing rendition of “Free, Free, Palestine”, with the chorus being “Boycott Israel”.

Not quite what we expected.
Being curious, we approached the leader who we will just call Abdullah, as he was indeed a slave of Allah.
This is the essence to the exchange we had with Abdullah.

We said:

Israel was created from the British Mandate for Palestine of 1917 and approved by the League of Nations in 1925 and later by the UN in 1947/48. Israel has a legitimate right to exist. In the Bible God promised this homeland to the Jews.

Abdullah said:

You should listen to what Moses said. Moses promised a prophet called Ahmed who would be greater than Moses and everyone should listen to.

We said:

But Mohammed didn’t listen to Moses. Where are the Ten Commandments God gave to Moses?

Abdullah said: Nothing, actually!

We said:

You should read the Bible, Abdullah, because Abraham was told that the promise would come through the seed of Isaac, not Ishmael, and Mohammed came from Ishmael. That prophecy is about Jesus.

Then we discussed the history of “Palestine”.

We said:

Mohammedan’s merry marauders invaded the region in the seventh century, killing, raping and robbing the Jews and Christians and submitting them to the status of second class citizens.

Abdullah said:

No, we are descendants of the original Canaanites and the Israelis came and took our land by force, so it is the Israelis who are the invaders.

Once again, we felt like telling Abdullah that if he read the book of Exodus in the Bible, God had promised to kill off the Canaanites, Hitites and jebusites because of their idol worship and immoral living. God promised this land to the Israelis. The Israelis failed God here, because they did not finish God’s commandments and kill all the Canaanites. But Abdullah was needed by the BDS group as they were about to start their performance. 

Random Act of Hate by the BDS

The Christmas crowd in Myers was then treated to this repetitive chanting.

“Free, Free, Palestine”

“Boycott Israel”

The merry Santa was ringing his bell and shouting “Ho, Ho, Ho, Israel must Go”.

Did this attract big crowds? NO, but it did attract the store manager, Security Guards and the Police.

Somehow “Free, Free Palestine. Boycott Israel” does not rise to the same heights as:

“King of Kings and Lord of Hosts”

“And He shall reign forever and ever”

“Hallelujah, Hallelujah”.

Our recommendation to the BDS.

Next time, try a rousing rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus. We guarantee you will draw a huge following!

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.

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).
