After many years of researching and writing about Islam, I have become so aware of the deliberate attempts to delegitimize Israel and deny the historical connection to the land. We see events like Israel Apartheid Week played out
around the world and movements like BDS which aim at destroying Israel. With this in mind we again visited Israel in September 2016 to investigate issues further and visit known hot spots like Hebron and Bethlehem. Indeed there were travel warnings against Hebron as we booked a tour with a Ramallah based tour group and also we were in Jerusalem at the time of the funeral for Shimon Peres who was revered by Israelis but roundly condemned by Muslims and even Australia’s Green party leader Richard Di Natali.
Why is truth so important?
Increasingly there are signs everywhere of deception and rewriting of our history to distort the truth. Our universities are awash with Arab oil money to subvert the next generation of students and rogue text books are present in our schools, presenting a distorted picture of history deliberately undermining western civilization and culture.
Mind your language
I personally don’t like the word “Palestinian” in the context used today as it originally applied to the Jews not the Arabs. Likewise I find terms like “occupied”,” illegal settlers” and even the “West Bank” offensive as it is a deliberate attempt to undermine Israeli sovereignty.
What are Arabs saying?
At this point before continuing, let us revisit what Arabs have said about Palestine in the past. For over 40 years, Arab figures from PLO, Fatah and Hamas have consistently stated that the Palestinian people is a falsehood designed to destroy Israel. Do our political leaders listen?
The warnings have been out there for a long time now. At best, our political and judicial leaders have been naïve and ignorant. At worst, those leaders have – for political or personal gain – sold out the very people they are supposed to represent. As the result (or lack of result) of the July 2nd Federal election clearly demonstrates, it is more likely that our anti-leaders are in fact simply asleep at the wheel, have isolated themselves from their constituents, and have forgotten who in fact they work for. Because the Australian legal system is actually in the process of making room for a parallel system of religious law. And make no mistake – it is the intention of the promoters that Sharia law that it will only run parallel for as long as it takes Sharia to supplant our Australian Statute and Common Law system entirely.
Sharia is already partially entrenched in Australia’s daily existence through the halal certification system. In April of 2016, mainstream media reported the operation of Sharia Law in NSW. This wasn’t news, however – it was widely known that Sharia Law was being practised behind closed doors. The many headed abomination known as multiculturalism has provided tacit, informal accommodation of practices that are dividing our nation along religious lines.
If halal certification was the thin end of the wedge, then Labor Senator Nick Sherry (as Assistant Treasurer) exerted unwelcome pressure on the log-splitter by directing the Board of Taxation in 2009 to undertake a comprehensive review of Federal tax laws to ensure that taxation requirements didn’t impede the growth of Sharia banking and financial products. And so Sharia Law jammed its obscene foot through the Australian judicial door.
From here, it’s a short walk to successfully arguing that Sharia Law, because it is already in operation in Australia, is clearly compatible with existing secular law and Muslims should be able to rely on Sharia in its entirety – and therefore should not be subject to secular law at all. That is, Australian statute ad common laws will no longer be relevant or applicable to adherents of Islam.
Sharia is a threat to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Whilst the nature of the threat to infidels is clear, Sharia can be used by fundamentalists (ie, most Imams) to bring so-called peaceful or moderate Muslims into line with their own hysterically paranoid doctrines and coagulate the more benign members of the Islamic community into an anti-western, anti-secular, anti-democratic mass, using the standard inventory of fundamentalist tools: threats of death or violence against individuals or their family members.
Read more about the undesirable insurgence of Sharia Law into our lives in the latest edition of Face The Facts. Understand how Australia is being pushed into changing its basic underlying laws and values to accommodate a religious minority group, and be clear that no other migrant group has ever made similar demands, either on legal or religious grounds. And tell others about the problem we are facing !!!
It is no secret that the Left loathes the Australia that provides us with a lifestyle and freedoms that are the envy of the rest of the world. They despise our democratic institutions and Western values. The leftist insurgency into Australian universities, bureaucracies and mainstream media tirelessly denigrates all things Australian whilst promoting tolerance of all that is opposed to free, democratic society. All those who do not fall into line behind the Left's ideocracy are branded right wing extremists and publicly vilified. Any house with a flag pole and Australian flag is condemned as the home of a racist. And anyone who questions the spread of Islam in Australia is subjected to personal abuse and possibly violence.
Our political leaders and public service elite, our media commentators and university academics have all cultivated a contemptuous and patronising attitude of purporting to know what is best for all Australians, but it's patently clear that these imbeciles are selling our nation out wholesale. None, apparently, believe that the way of life they enjoy - probably to a greater extent than the great unwashed have any opportunity to - is worth defending.
Australian - and indeed Western - universities are petri dishes within which are being cultured a viral melange of neo-Marxist, feminist and post-colonialist theorists, who argue that western civilisation is oppressive, racist, misogynistic and founded in histories and cultures that are no longer relevant. Any opinion to the contrary is either ignored, ridiculed or assassinated. In today's academic environment censorship is the norm, whilst challenging assumptions or speaking openly and freely is blocked or suppressed.
Western civilisation may not be perfect, but it has the unique characteristic of being able to self-critique and adjust. Western thought is based on reason, enquiry, analysis and discussion, rather than myth, superstition, here-say and hysteria. Yet today, illogically, academics and students alike defend Islam from "oppression" and the media - our self-appointed guardians of truth and freedom - follow suit. And why is it that feminists shrill about misogyny in Australia yet remain silent on the issues of polygamy, infant brides and female genital mutilation.
To find out more about the widespread application of institutional censorship and the apparent stupidity of supposedly intelligent Australians, read the latest edition of FACE THE FACTS.
We're a simple lot, we Australians. Our obsessions with sport and alcohol characterise our nation. Add some reality TV and our smart devices, and that seems to be us. Done. 24 Hours of every day occupied, with no time left for raising children, understanding the world around us, or having a thoughtful conversation with friends.
Little wonder, then, that our "Lucky Country" is disappearing out from under us. Little wonder that we haven't noticed how our once free, liberal and egalitarian society is being progressively shut down. Little wonder that we've missed how our laws, once used to enshrine our freedoms, are now being hijacked and distorted and used to define the permitted limits of our thinking and expression, and the societal constraints within which we are now allowed to live.
How has this come about ? Well, it happened while we were watching the footy and the cricket. It happened whilst we were having a few cans at the Sunday session. Mostly, though, it happened because Australian politicians - with few exceptions - and the Australian voting public are incredibly ignorant, stupid and naive.
In 1972, we overwhelmingly voted into The Lodge a card carrying member of the Communist Party of Australia. His mission, and that of his entourage, was to tear apart a conservative Australian culture that had kept the ALP out of power for so long. And what better way to destroy the solidarity of a culture than to splinter it into ethnic cells through the promotion of multiculturalism - a doctrine of fostering mini-nations within nations. And, as bonuses, multiculturalism acts like Roundup on the roots of nationalism and pushes many of the costs associated with out of control immigration back onto the assimilating migrant communities - with the exception of the direct cost of social welfare payments.
By 1973, multiculturalism had been presented as the new basis for immigration in a rogue speech delivered by Al Grassby, Minister for Immigration under Whitlam. It was rogue speech because Grassby contradicted Labor's own immigration policy at the time. It was, however, Fraser who became the first person to use the expression "multi-cultural society" in an Australian Parliament. The cultural and social mess that Australia is currently experiencing, therefore, can be laid fairly and squarely at the feet of these two fools.
The direct impact of adopting multiculturalism is this - if we have no expectation that migrants will adopt our culture, then how can we expect them to respect or value it ? How can we expect migrants not to abuse and undermine it ? Importantly, without the protection of assimilation, how can we expect our culture to survive ? And, ultimately, how can we expect to not be marginalised in our own nation through sheer uncontrolled volume of numbers, if we persist with our current approach to immigration ?
Until recently, whilst first generation migrants may have kept within their own communities and culture, their children and grandchildren assimilated to a much greater degree as they became institutionally "Australianised" through school and work. Such, however, will not be the case with Islamic migrants because of the religio-cultural barrier, and because of the control exercised by Australian Islamic community leaders. Whilst non-Islamic migrants are simply that - migrants, who have come to Australia in search of a safer, better life for themselves and their families - recent Islamic migrants are colonists who, wittingly or unwittingly, are helping to execute the mandates of the Muslim Brotherhood's 100 year plan for world Islamisation. The principal premise of this plan, as shaped by the Brotherhood's manifesto known as "The Project", is gradualism - achieved through infiltration, deception and targeted cultural erosion.
The current edition of FACE THE FACTS considers the process of gradualism, the creeping indoctrination of Australia and Australians, and the progressive destruction of many things we hold dear in the name of "causing no offence". In the current times, life in Australia is like a game of cringe twister, with Islam rolling the dice and Australians assuming the position.
