Hired thugs vs the Mural

E-mail Print PDF

On Sunday, a demonstration was held in Newtown, Sydney, opposing a Mural that states: "Say No To Burqas".

The demonstration turned violent and over 100 police were deployed and several arrests were made.

The demonstration highlighted two very important issues. In the fist instance, it is reverse discrimination against freedom of speech and expression in Australia as surely the owner of the premises is entitled to express his view in a non violent manner.

I personally find the Burqa offensive, un-Australian and divisive, it is uncalled for and not part of any Australian tradition by any stretch of the imagination and I genuinely pity the poor women who wear it.

We do NOT want the Australian culture challenged by any person, group or faith.

In the second instance, it is concerning that some of the women who wear the Burqa are either forced to, or they tell us it shows they are “dignified, respectable and virtuous, and it is part of their Islamic dress code for unrighteous women”.

 Thugs for hire trying to intimidate Sergio Redegalli

The direct inference is that the women (the 99.9% of Australian women) who do not wear this item of dress are some how less respectable, less dignified and inferior to Islamic women who do wearing the Burqa. The essence and very disturbing notion is that women who do not wear the Burqa are some how "lesser to the superior Burqa wearing women".

This disgraceful sentiment was reiterated by Sheik Taj Din Hilali when he said:

"If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the back yard without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?" (source)

The comments are derogatory and are an insult to every Australian woman.

It troubles me that women in Islamic countries are degraded and forced to wear this inappropriate draconian garment.

Surely their Muslim brothers will respect women irrespective of their dress code and exhibit self control and respect for their sisters.

Before Taj Din Hilali starts to ridicule non Muslim Australian women, I ask him if he is aware that in his home land of Egypt (90% Muslim), sexual harassment of women is so epidemic that the women themselves created a tracking system for reporting the sexual harassment that occurs as the police would not act:

"For women in Egypt, sexual harassment is an unwelcome but all too common part of life. In 2008, the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights released statistics stating that 83% of Egyptian women and 98% of foreign women in Egypt reported exposure to sexual harassment. HarassMap, a project based in Cairo, plans to give women an outlet to report instances of haramessnt. Combining FrontlineSMS and Ushahidi’s mapping platform, HarassMap aims to be a voice for women." (source)

It is evident that the problem lies with Islamic men and the dress is a means of protection.

If Taj Hilali does not like it here he can go back to Egypt and enjoy the bliss of an Islamic Nation.

People like him that make such outrageous statements do not deserve to live in Australia.

In a hateful manner, he tarnishes Australia and covers up the FILTH in his Islamic Homeland.

Taj Din Hilali is an Egyptian, it has to be wondered why he seems to remain ignorant to the official edicts of the highest Islamic institutes in the world, or why he chooses to ignore them and deceive the Australian community as surely he and his Muslim brothers and sisters will respect the edicts of these Islamic leaders and scholars in the world.

What I find totally reprehensible is the ignorance of people like him in the Islamic community. Like many others I have studied the Koran and have repeatedly asserted that the Burqa is un-Islamic and not sanctioned in the Koran.

The Burqa is a cultural not religious tradition.

Why does the Muslim community pick and choose what Islamic edicts they will adhere to? Why do they lie and mislead us by wilful omission? Surely these clerics will uphold the rulings of their OWN Islamic leaders?

While the debate regarding the Burqa rages around the world, an example of this selective choosing was shown on the program Insight, featured on channel SBS in December 2010. Not one Islamic cleric or Imam on the show made reference to the comments of one of the Deans of the highest Islamic institutes in the world; the al-Azhar University.

It seems as though it is inconvenient for them and they use the Burqa as a divisive tool in the name of Islam.

TAJ DIN HILALI LET ME, AS A NON MUSLIM TO EDUCATE YOU ON THE RULINGS MADE BY YOUR HIGHEST ISLAMIC INSTITUTE IN THE WORLD.

The below article speaks for itself, ENJOY READING IT, GET ON THE PHONE AND CALL YOUR MATES BACK IN EGYPT.

Egypt's highest Muslim authority has said he will issue a religious edict against the growing trend for full women's veils, known as the niqab. Sheikh Mohamed Tantawi, dean of al-Azhar university, called full-face veiling a custom that has nothing to do with the Islamic faith.
Although most Muslim women in Egypt wear the Islamic headscarf, increasing numbers are adopting the niqab as well.
The practice is widely associated with more conservative trends of Islam.
The niqab question reportedly arose when Sheikh Tantawi was visiting a girls' school in Cairo at the weekend and asked one of the students to remove her niqab.
The Egyptian newspaper al-Masri al-Yom quoted him expressing surprise at the girl's attire and telling her it was merely a tradition, with no connection to religion or the Koran.

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.

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.

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).

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.
