How to Prevent Extremism

E-mail Print PDF

On Page 16 of Saturday’s Age (2nd April), I noticed an advert by the Attorney-General’s Department of the Australian Government.

It read:

Building Community Resilience
Grants Program
Applications now open.

The Australian Government is investing $9.6 million in a package of measures to support community organizations to counter violent extremism in their local areas. As part of this, the Attorney-General’s Department is inviting applications for grants from $5,000 to $20,000 and from $20,001 to $100,000 for initiatives that build community resilience to violent extremism and lessen the appeal of extremist ideologies. 

 Applications close 29 April 2011.

The Australian Government recognises the importance of working with communities to build resilience to the influence of violent extremism and promote a safe and inclusive Australia. The risk of vulnerable individuals in Australia becoming radicalised to the point of being willing to use violence was identified as a key issue of concern in the Australian Government’s Counter-terrorism White Paper, Securing Australia, Protecting Our Community.

As part of the 2010 Budget, $9.7 million over 4 years was allocated specifically to addressing the issue of domestic violent extremism. The funding is in addition to a number of existing initiatives totalling over $77 million that form part of the Government’s broader social inclusion and national security agendas.
The Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Taskforce within the Attorney-General’s Department is developing and implementing a sophisticated and coordinated national approach to countering violent extremism. This approach will reduce the potential for a home grown terrorist attack through building a more resilient Australia that is less vulnerable to the processes of radicalisation and through assisting individuals to disengage from violent extremist influences.

At present, the greatest terrorist threat to Australia and Australian interests comes from people who follow a distorted and militant interpretation of Islam that calls for violence as the answer to perceived grievances.

Communities are best placed to develop solutions to local problems and for that reason, consultation will be occurring with a wide variety of community groups and stakeholders. Based on this consultation and research a number of projects will we implemented over the next four years. 

An opportunity for community groups and non-government organisations to put forward proposals for preventing violent extremism within their neighbourhoods is now available through the Building Community Resilience Youth Mentoring Grants program.

Here’s an opportunity for Q Society  to make a contribution. They have already done valuable work in alerting the public to the dangers of sharia and the Islamisation of Australia.

For the information of the Taskforce, I also have “a sophisticated and coordinated approach to countering violent extremism.” But mine doesn’t involve treating potential terrorists as being “vulnerable to the processes of radicalization”. Rather, mine recognizes that terrorist acts are carried out by those following an ideology which incites violence against infidels, not because they are victims.

It’s unfortunate that the Australian Government recognizes where the “greatest terrorist threat to Australia and Australian interests comes from”, yet still insists that the perpetrators are following “a distorted and militant interpretation of Islam”.
For what it’s worth*, here is my two bob’s worth about countering violent extremism:

  1. Carefully monitor mosques and Islamic schools and shut down those found to be preaching extremism, which includes hostility towards other religions and to fellow Australians.
  2. Stop Islamic infiltration into our schools by disallowing LFOA and other da’wa initiatives like the Jewish Christian Muslim Association (JCMA), which goes into schools spreading mass deception. Here’s what they say:

JCMA,…aims to enable people of faith to deepen their understanding of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in Australia today by meeting, engaging with and learning from Jews, Christians and Muslims... In 2005 JCMA was successful in obtaining a Living in Harmony Grant to run a pilot Secondary Schools project in Metropolitan and Regional Victoria in 2006.
We co-operate to promote interfaith dialogue and encounter each other as people of faith and integrity living in Australia. We discover many shared religious values, as well as much variation, both within and between our faiths. We aim to strengthen our own and the public’s commitment to the significance of community participation, freedom of religion, diversity, and respect for each others faith in public discourse and to encourage the active involvement of people of faith in the contemporary Australian context.  (source)

  1. Discontinue all Government funding of ‘interfaith’ groups, where dhimmi Christians and Jews, acquiesce in the false Islamic narrative that all worship the same God, share the same values, and as Abrahamic faiths, can happily coexist.
  2. Discontinue sharia finance and prevent halal food being introduced by stealth.
  3. Prosecute all Muslims found to be preaching the overthrow of our democracy, which includes anyone advocating sharia.
  4. Refuse to have any contact with Islamic groups which are connected with the Muslim Brotherhood or which support Australian Palestinian Groups promoting the racist BDS movement and Israel Apartheid Week.
  5. Play the Islamists at their own game by using lawfare against them. Start prosecuting racist Islamic groups, and desist from using lawfare against those trying to expose Islam’s racism.

In other words, sideline Islam and vigorously prosecute breaches of law rather than excusing and privileging it.

*Now those suggestions are worth $100,000 in anyone’s money.

But I’m not greedy – I’ll settle for $20,001!

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.

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.
