Sharia arrives at your friendly Community House

E-mail Print PDF

If you happen to live in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda East, you’re in for a surprise. Sharia is steadily infiltrating the area, as Alma Road Community House is now a venue for Friday Islamic prayers.

Victoria is famous for its Neighbourhood (Community) Houses and Learning Centres, which are ‘local organisations that provide social, educational and recreational activities for their communities in a welcoming supportive environment’, allowing ‘opportunities for people’s participation and learning’ (reference)

It is difficult to know where an Islamic prayer group which endorses Sharia law fits into this, especially as the prayer group takes up the whole space, thereby preluding its use by others during this time. The group is described as “an Islamic Centre” on the website.

Strangely, there is also an Islamic Society run from the unit next door, occupied by one Qaiser Mohammed. Even more curious, the website seems to be run by Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah, whose leader is Mufti Afzal Hoosen Elias.

In “Thieves, give Muhammad a hand! The tragic sound of one hand clapping in Islam’, Mufti Afzal gets a mention:

Sad to report, the policy of chopping off the hands of thieves comes directly from the Quran itself, in Sura or Chapter 5:38…Some Muslim apologists, especially on the worldwide web, seek to squirm out of the plain and harsh meaning of Sura 5:38 with dubious translations. To counter this confusion and subterfuge, the following long list of Muslim translations anchor the key words and prevent endless disputes.
"And as for the male and female thief, cut off their hands" (Mufti Afzal Hoosen Elias, translator of Mufti Muhammad Aashiq’s commentary);
(source)

Another famous son is Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon , who proclaimed:

"One day Australia will be ruled by sharia, no doubt. That is why non-Muslims are worried, because they know one day they won't be able to drink their beer, they won't be able to eat their pork and they won't be able to do their homosexual acts, because one day they know they will be controlled."
Siddiq-Conlon formed Sharia4Australia last year, styling himself as the new champion for Islamic law in Australia… He formerly studied under the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'ah Association…
(source)

Despite all this, Exective Officer, Sandy Joffe has no problem with Islamic prayers being held:

This is a fantastic facility, enjoyed by many people who live, work, play – and pray – in the area. It is used for rummy tiles and children’s parties, play groups and prayer groups, secular and religious celebrations. It represents the diversity of our community.

But then, Sandy Joffe is active in the Australian Jewish Democratic Society (AJDS), a fringe Jewish group which often espouses the Islamist cause, such as giving a platform to pro-Palestinian activist Samah Sabawi, who ludicrously defined Israel as an apartheid State. (reference)

I bet you want to know where they wash before prayers. No problem, ritual washing is being performed in the washroom which houses a disabled and a child’s toilet.

Until relatively recently, there has been minimal Muslim presence in this area. Wikipedia reports:

St Kilda East is one of the more diverse and densely populated suburbs of Melbourne. It has a prominent Jewish community descended from Polish and Russian immigrants. Quiet and residential, it is quite different from the adjacent suburb of St Kilda…There are many churches in St Kilda East…Many of the church buildings are historic and heritage registered and form various religious precincts. (source)

Surely the Islamists haven’t targeted East St Kilda to infiltrate, as it is a bastion of Judeo/Christianity?

Far from providing social, educational and recreational activities for their communities in a welcoming supportive environment,’ allowing the House to be used as a prayer house will prevent others from feeling welcome there. Local people will be too intimidated to use this wonderful facility, which should be open to all. Many people, especially the aged, disabled and very young, depend on the House for a social outlet. Let us not deny those most in need just to satisfy the demands of a group who would deny freedom and opportunity to others.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail

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.

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.
