Islamophobia in New Zealand?

E-mail Print PDF
The Residents Action Movement (RAM) held meetings in Auckland recently to protest about  "A group of hard-core, professional Islamophobes from Australia” who “spread a message of hatred towards Muslims and Islam," George Galloway, British renegade MP and founder of the inappropriately-named Respect Party, was invited to speak about 'Peace'.
World Peace Leader
World Peace Leader? 

Who were these professional Islamophobes?
Apparently none other than Rev Dr Stuart Robinson and colleagues at the 'Mosques and Miracles' conferences.

Well if you believe it’s Islamophobic to say, as Dr. Robinson did "Their books teach that they [Muslims] are the best of all people, that they want to rule over the whole world” and that Muslim theology "teaches that war has to be prosecuted against the infidel until the day of judgment when Jesus Christ  returns", then RAM have a point.

The problem is, that’s exactly what the Qu’ran does teach. So is it Islamophobic to tell the truth? If you say that Nazis wanted to kill all the Jews, is that Naziphobic? Probably, but maybe we should oppose evil ideologies.
Rev Dr Stuart RobinsonDr Robinson also said most Westerners did not understand that Islam taught that peace would prevail in the world only when the Muslim religion predominated and that Islam taught that the only sure way to paradise was to die as a martyr for the faith. "That becomes an enormous recruitment device for a lot of the suicide bombing that we see," he said.

Sadly, this is exactly what orthodox (not radical) Islam does teach. So when Muslims and their apologists spout their “Religion of Peace” mantra, they are correct – except their defintion of peace differs markedly from ours.

Mr Galloway retorted "Have you seen any signs of New Zealand's Muslims launching a jihad [holy war]?"  He said statements at the conference that good Muslims must kill Christians and Jews would be illegal under a British law to ban religious hate speech. New Zealand does not have such a law. Sadly, Victoria does, and it has been used to prevent 2 pastors telling the truth about Islam by the Islamist Islamic Council of Victoria.
"One of the reasons we have it in Britain is the prevalence of this kind of anti-Muslim hate propaganda which becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy," he said. "If you generate hatred against Muslims, you will get a reaction from young Muslims seeking to defend their community."

Yes, that’s right, it’s our fault that they’re blowing themselves up in  free Western countries and exploding bombs in our trains and buildings  – they’re just reacting to our hatred of them!

Odd though, that it’s only Muslims who are so “reactive”. (source )

In RAM’s press release, Grant Morgan said:
"The people who are coming from Australia are hard-core professional, extreme right-wing Islamophobes. They are not interested in reasoned, rational arguments" and that “Islamophobia is racism against Muslims. “

But wait a minute, Islam is a belief system, not a race, just as its fellow ideologies Marxism and Nazism are.

Morgan continues “They claim that Muslims will destroy democracy here and force everyone to 'submit' to Islam, or else face being enslaved or killed

Again, this is all  true. Islam is opposed to democracy and wants everyone to be subjugated under Islam.

Pointing out that the Galloway meetings were open to the public and media, whilst the Robinson meetings were closed, he pronounces "If their message was wholesome, why would they try to hide it from scrutiny by the public and the media?" Mr Morgan said.

Galloway's meetings are always open to the public and media

Well, try this for an answer: anyone who dares tell the truth about Islam is threatened, either physically or with legal action. Ask Salman Rushdie, the Danish newspaper guys, Theo van Gogh. On second thoughts, don’t ask poor old Theo, as he was killed by a follower of this peaceful religion.

Green Party MP Mr Locke intoned "I'm sure Mr Galloway's message will be one of harmony between religions."

Oh yes, I’m sure it will!

Spokesperson for New Zealand's Muslim community, Javed Khan, says Robinson teaches that Islam is a worldwide threat, to which conference spokesman, Glyn Carpenter replied the Australian speakers were here to share their experiences of Islam and to urge Christians to love Muslims, not hate them. (listen), but Grant Morgan said he doubts their sincerity. (listen)

Not half as much as I doubt the sincerity of Galloway’s message of harmony!

"RAM is organising Voices of Peace as a positive alternative to their racism against Muslims," said Grant Morgan.
"RAM supports the values of social inclusion, equal rights for all and world peace”. (source)

Yes, we know about Islam’s equal rights for all and world peace. It’s called jihad! Just look at the history of Islamic conquest and brutality if you don’t believe me.


PAUL G. BUCHANAN, Director of the Working Group on Alternative Security Perspectives , launched a thinly-veiled threat:
 “..since 9/11 New Zealand has adopted a more hostile policy towards Muslim immigrants and has increased scrutiny of the resident Muslim population. This policy is exactly the type of scapegoating and discrimination that breeds resentment amongst disenchanted elements of targeted communities….Islam poses no threat to the Kiwi way of life unless New Zealand authorities and the public continue to ostracise Muslims simply because of who they are."

So the message lies in that “UNLESS” - if you want to avoid violence, just give in to all our demands, however outrageous.
Javed
Javed Khan, president of Federation of Islamic Associations of NZ

Maybe we should let JAVED KHAN have the last word:
 "..I  hope that George Galloway will enlighten New Zealand on the plight of Muslims facing a rising tide of Islamophobia. This racism against Muslims is linked to the so-called 'War on Terror', which was never sanctioned by the United Nations. It was simply a ploy of the superpowers to plunder the rich resources of the Middle East. To defeat terror and religious extremism, Muslims, Christians, Jews and all others should practice a 'unity in diversity'. This will surely lead to peace and harmonious co-existence for all humanity. All faiths have a common theme of working for peace as a basic condition for leading lives acceptable to God Almighty. This was the message of all our prophets and seers of all ages." (source)

Well Javed, it certainly wasn’t the message of the prophet Mohamed! At least not last time I checked out the Qu’ran.

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).

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.
