Multiculturism: Islamic Jihad: Islamaphobia: Hijab: Mosques: Racism: - "Muslims will have a more and more decisive voice in the makeup of European governments." - "Every European with a right mind has every reason to be frightened," - "It is time one should wake up and realize what is happening in Europe,"According to Professor Israeli's new book, "As many as 100,000 French and British citizens have converted to Islam over the last decade".
The Rise of Islam: A lose / lose situation for everyone)
In a recent article in Jerusalem Post entitled: Islam converts change face of EuropeBy Etgar Lefkovits, reference was made to statistics provided by Hebrew University Prof. Raphael Israeli that indicates that the face of Europe will change not just because of immigrant Muslim populations and associated birth rates, but because of the ever growing number of conversions to Islam.
Professor Israeli warns:
"Muslims will have a more and more decisive voice in the makeup of European governments."
"Every European with a right mind has every reason to be frightened,"
"It is time one should wake up and realize what is happening in Europe,"
According to Professor Israeli's new book, "As many as 100,000 French and British citizens have converted to Islam over the last decade".
Before continuing with this article, let me state plainly, that I too have a son who has converted to Islam and married a wonderful Muslim Woman. Both are orthodox in their religious practices. I believe that people of faith make for good people and good citizens, and so have no objection to my son's conversion.
However, I'm not an unintelligent man, and nor do I follow the Moronic, Politically Correct (and totalitarian) ideologies that are but facades that hide the world's ugliness like a laminate sheet hides the 'chipboard' of an apparently solid and beautiful piece of furniture.
Every convert to anything (religious, political or social) goes through a period of idealistic zeal; a period in which everything is beautiful and right and perfect. It takes time to see the crap that lies concealed beneath, and the basic hypocrisy, or, put another way, the practical day to day operating theology.
When it comes to Islam however, I have one concern that is not of itself specifically religious. It is the same concern that I have with regard to the current state of life in democratic countries; totalitarian ideology, and it's tendency to punish those who dissent.
The major concern in Professor Israeli's book is to do with the Political power that Muslims will hold.
"The sheer weight of demography will produce a situation where no Frenchman or Dutchman could be elected to parliament without the support of the Muslim minority"
This of itself is no real cause for concern to me either, because, if Christian Morality and Ethics are to be done away with by secularists, then at least the political clout of Muslims will provide a moral and ethical counterbalance to the Politically Correct humanitarian B.S. that currently passes itself as Social Morality.
What concerns me about Islamic Political power in democratic countries, is the current nature of Islam, (Yes Mr. Devolin! We do have somewhat different views : Conversion with Mr. Devolin), and it's desire not just to bring the non-Muslim world into submission, but the Muslim world as well.
Everyday we read of the number of people killed in Iraq, and whilst the Morons keep saying it is America's fault, the reality is that most deaths are the result of factional fighting between different Islamic Sects. January 23rd 2007 in Baghdad, around 100 citizens were killed in bomb explosions, apparently because Saddam's followers prefer to kill Iraqi's than Americans. 15 killed in Baghdad suicide bombings - Jan 27th 2007 (TWO suicide bombers killed 15 people and wounded 55. Insurgents have stepped up attacks...in a bid to inflict as many civilian casualties as possible, security officials say.)
A MAN claiming to represent al-Qaeda in Australia has left a telephone message at an Arabic Australian newspaper threatening to kill its editor-in-chief and destroy its offices in Sydney and Melbourne. Apparently reading from a script, the Arabic-speaking caller threatened to butcher every Iraqi Kurd and Shiite in Australia.
"You Shiites are dogs. You are scum, to be trodden underfoot. From Moqtada al-Sadr to Hassan Nasrallah, all your leaders are dogs and scum. Do not think that the death of Saddam will save you. We will deter you with terrorism here inside Australia.
When we turn our attention to Palestine, those same morons who blame everything on the Israelis, fail to take note of recent events in which different Islamic political groups who have no compunction in killing compatriots, have being going to war with each other.
Over the past 24 hours, the infighting of Palestinian factions between Hamas and Fatah has continued in which at least 10 persons dead and some 20 others injured. The death toll is the highest in internal Palestinian violence in a single spurt of violence since Hamas' rise to power a year ago.
This sectarian violence (which was also seen in Christian Northern Ireland not so long ago), is purely political.
While for a time, as the presence and political power of Islam is felt in Australia, a new day of moral and ethical order will begin to arise, my fear is that in the end, Islam itself will arise and take control of the country. Shortly thereafter, the morality and ethics of Islam will take a back seat to Political power, and as we have seen around the world, those in power (or those seeking it) will kill anyone and everyone who is not on their side.
Those who do not belong to the power group will be infidels, worthy of death. Those who do belong to the power group, will become slaves to the dictates of the group. And both sides will use totalitarian methods to keep their followers (passive or active) in line.
In Australia, and I guess the same applies elsewhere, the real problem is that modern day alleged intellectuals, in their pursuit of an enforced social experiment, created and then empowered a political concept called multiculturalism. As well meaning as it was, it is directly responsible for the racism and segregation of communities that we see in Australia.
Australia has always been a multicultural country, but once the political activists and their thought police got involved, the way was paved for the justification of a 'them and us' immigrant segregation. While for many, (including immigrants) this was the opposite of what was desired or expected, for others it has provided justification for creating a state within a state to guarantee that certain immigrants would not integrate and not get tainted by Australian Values.
If you doubt this concept, do an internet search on Shiek Hilaly and his comments. It is to the credit of Lebanese Muslim Association that they have taken some measures to muzzle the man.
Whilst Victoria celebrates multiculturalism, with Mr. Bracks saying on Australia Day, "People who have moved to Australia, moved to Victoria, moved to Melbourne to settle are proud of being Australian and wanting to share that with others" - the Australian Immigration Department has finally dumped the use of the word Multiculturalism. Multiculturalism dumped By Michael Madigan : January 23, 2007
MORE than 30 years after the Whitlam government introduced Australians to multiculturalism, the term has been officially discarded by the Immigration Department.
"I think the title of the new department expresses the desires and the aspirations (of the people) and that is that the people who come to this country become Australians," Mr Howard said
Former immigration minister Al Grassby gave Australia multiculturalism under the Whitlam government in the early 1970s.The word encapsulated a new approach to immigration, allowing individual cultures to flourish beside one another rather than forcing conformity to the accepted norm.
From these two quotes we notice two very important things about Multiculturalism. The first is that as a political idea, multiculturalism was designed to allow people not to integrate. As such it is responsible for the horrible state of affairs that exists where Australian Muslims are blamed for Islamic terrorism, and Jews are blamed for every Palestinian Death.
The Second thing to note is, that as a means of facilitating appreciation for other cultures, it works well when those other cultures become a part of our world, as opposed to being aloof from it. English important, PM tells immigrants
PRIME Minister John Howard used a citizenship ceremony in Canberra today to remind immigrants of the need to embrace Australian values and to learn English.
It was interesting to read of an incident in Adelaide Australia Day 2007, in which "about 500 young people turned on each other after hours of partying."(Boozy day sees 17 charged) I actually had to laugh at the report, concluding that everyone involved must have been white, speaking only English, otherwise we would have had another headline similar to "SYDNEY'S RACIAL VIOLENCE"
The day started with everyone singing 'We are One'? Then all it took was a few beers for people to drop the facade and express their true feelings..
I find it strange that the same crowd who push for social change (experimenting), and who usually accept evolution as a fact, just love to tag people who dislike or distrust foreigners as Xenophobic.Stranger anxiety which is common in children, is necessarily a part of evolutionary development. It's mother nature's way of keeping us safe. Whilst fear of the strange or unknown can be overcome with time, experience and education, activists and thought police seek to enforce acceptance through ideological methods which include legislation. Such legislation has as much chance of removing inate fear and suspicion, as would legislating that Mother Nature endow every individual with a heterosexual orientation.
What is even stranger I think, is that the same people who scream 'xenophobia', have, through the implimentation of certain legislation, forbidden immigrants from following certain of their cultural practices, because we do not find them acceptable.
I come from a multi-ethnic and multi-religious extended family, and like my relatives, I am proud to be Australian. What I am not proud of however, is that slant that certain sections of the community put on Australian culture, insisting that it is either no culture at all, or inferior to other cultures. Everyone of course has the right to their opinion, and as long as it remains opinion, who cares what anyone thinks. It is quite another thing however, to try to forcibly engineer society through what has ultimately proven to be a political dictate, Multiculturalism.
We have taught foreigners that they can come to Australia and remain foreigners. We have shown them that if anyone says anything that they don't like, we will prosecute or persecute the offender.
It is we who have created the situation wherein people like Shiek Hilaly have felt empowered to spit in the face of Australia and declare us unworthy of being citizens in our own country. And it is we the social engineers who have raised the level of racism in Australia, if indeed racism has increased at all.
It is only my opinion, but I don't think most Australians give a damn about an immigrant's race or religion, as long as they don't ram it down our throats. Unfortunately, after years of watching and hearing native born activists ramming a ton of unwarranted garbage down our throats, certain peoople like Shiek Hilaly have begun to do the same, and we the people have grown sick of it.
Let us all be one people - Australians. If any community wants to create a separate and superior society within our midst, and it's political tradition is not only to spit on us, but to enslave and control their own people through death threats and fear, then we need to do something before the whole country falls.
It's time to create our own Australian form of Xenophobia. If you are not firstly Australian, then we are suspicious of you, we fear you, and ultimately we will hate you. In Short, we don't want you here.
There is no real friction between Muslim values and Australian values, in fact, there's no real difference.
Thirty years ago when I arrived in Perth I never thought that I would live here permanently. But the Australian way of life and outlook that embraces values such as the love for freedom and peace, respect for democracy and the rule of law, tolerance for difference and diversity, and a willingness to extend a charitable hand to the struggling and down-trodden made me to fall in love with Australia.
Reader Comment Dr Ameer Ali of Sri Lankan origin is wrongly assuming that Australia is a "Muslim country" because it practices such noble values as kindness, justice, trust, forgiveness and charity which, according to him, is also praticed by Muslims. These values in Australia have nothing to do with Islam as they stem from our Christian heritage

Sometimes 'affirmative action' can be taken too far, when oppressed minorities over-identify with their labels. Then, what merely should have corroborated the need for restitution becomes a defensive posture that emphasizes difference, separateness, reinforces alienation ?and discrimination. Pride over one's heritage can become a prison.
Young British Muslims are more likely than their elders to support Shari'a law and admire al-Qaida, but three-fifths of 16-to 24-year-olds say they have as much in common with non-Muslims as with Muslims, according to an opinion poll published on Monday.
Forty percent of Muslims between aged 16 to 24 said they would prefer to live under Shari'a law in the UK, compared to only 17% of those over 55. Thirty-six percent of the younger group said a Muslim who converted to another religion should be "punished by death," while only 19 percent of the older group agreed. Thirteen percent of young Muslims surveyed said they "admired" organizations such as al-Qaida and others who were prepared to "fight the West."
The truce was supposed to end factional fighting that has left more than 60 Palestinians dead over the past two months, and was set to go into effect at 3 a.m. local time (0100 GMT).
PA Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar of Hamas announced the agreement early Tuesday. Zahar said the agreement stipulated that all security forces must return to their bases, that suspects in killings were to be handed over, and that all hostages still being held - a number thought to be in the dozens - were to be released. He also said all roadblocks set up by the factions were to be removed. None of those steps appeared to have been taken after the 3 a.m. deadline.
It is only if the true history of the Middle East is understood that certain things become inescapably clear: the scale of the monumental lie that has been so assiduously promulgated about the nature of this dispute, a lie which is now generally assumed in the west to be true and which is driving the genocidal hysteria against Israel; the fact that the fundamental cause of this tragic impasse was the repeated British appeasement of Arab terror, illegality and injustice, a policy which continues to this very day; and the immorality and absurdity therefore of believing that today's 'Two-state solution' which among other things means that the 'Progressives' who support it thus support the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the putative state of Palestine' would be anything other than a Final Solution for the Jews of Israel, not to mention an incalculable victory for the forces waging war against the free world.
Of the countless distortions, errors and absurdities in this travesty of a report, the following jumped out at me from an initial reading.
1) The first error is in the title itself: HUMAN RIGHTS IN PALESTINE AND OTHER OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES: Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict
But Gaza is not occupied by Israel, as is quite clear from even a cursory look at the Hague Convention which lays down the criteria for occupation. For Goldstone to say that Gaza is still occupied demonstrates either an ignorance of international law quite remarkable for a professor of international law, or that he is signed up to the ideology which deliberately uses such mis-statements to delegitimise Israel.
2) Par 27: Goldstone describes Gaza as blockaded by Israel. He makes no mention of Gaza's border with Egypt which Egypt keeps closed. Is Goldstone as ignorant of topography as he appears to be of international law? Unlikely, since he also states [par 8] that the Mission sought and obtained the assistance of the Government of Egypt to enable it to enter the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing.
There are clear attempts being made to spark a third intifada in Jerusalem. Violence by Israeli Arabs started two weeks ago in the wake of the meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Obama and the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and Obama's inflammatory call at the UN for a Palestinian state that ends the occupation that began in 1967.
"The riots are being directly incited by the PA, whose official media outlets and institutions are stoking Arab flames by claiming right-wing extremist Jews are attempting to threaten Al-Aksa Mosque - a decades-old blood libel that should be easily dismissible in light of heavy Israeli restrictions on Jews and Christians from ascending the Mount during most hours of the day, whereas Muslims are usually free to access the site 24/7.
Israeli law prohibits Jews and Christians from praying on the site. If any so-called extremist Jew attempted to enter Al-Aksa, he or she would likely be immediately removed from the Temple Mount by Israeli police, who follow Jewish tour groups very closely and coordinate with the Wakf, the Islamic custodians of the site.
Fred Fleitz, a former senior adviser to Bolton, exposes UN waste and corruption and the resulting human costs. His book, Peacekeeping Fiascoes of the 1990s: Causes, Solutions, and U.S. Interests, provides a comprehensive critical assessment of the UN. Among other debacles, he shows how the failed UN mission in Bosnia led to unmitigated atrocities; how the UN debacle in Somalia emboldened terrorists the world over; how the UN peacekeeping operation in Haiti collapsed, with the billions of dollars squandered on it primarily benefiting Haitian President Jean-Bertrande Aristide. And then there was the "oil for food" scam between the UN and Saddam Hussein.

Re: Fort Hood Massacre I invite readers to think about the educators of our "politically correct" or non-judgmental media, because the core of the problem consists not in cowardly or obfuscating journalists but rather the universities that educated them.
We boast of these universities, even though they produce so many moral idiots. I mean men and women stultified by the academic doctrine of moral or cultural relativism. Because it is this doctrine that prompts "politically correct" fools to hire Muslims to serve on US military bases.
The social engineering of society, to accommodate 'ideological agendas' which sound so great, usually fall victim to 'The Law of Unintended Consequences'.
But when the 'rights' of ideologues, social engineers and political activists start impinging on our personal and traditional identity; which is to say, 'our national culture', then it is time to sit back and say 'enough!
We really do need to pay more attention to how our own minds operate, and how we are both consciously and subconsciously effected by Media Propaganda.
It's very easy to 'take sides' in an issue, and it is very easy to be persuaded of a cause, but at the end of the day, unless it is our specific purpose to blind ourselves to the truth, it is encumbent upon us to do our best to look at every situation from as many persepectives as possible...to make sure that we are not 'obsessive and compulsive' in our political and social judgements.
Is it possible that we and our kids are living in a state of 'stupor', controlled by external forces that seek to mould us to their wills? Does the media and do the Universities engineer what we think? Do they try to cast a spell over our minds and our thoughts?
Humankind (I'm afraid to write 'mankind') loves and admires charasmatic speakers and leaders, and naturally we expect students to 'look up to' their teachers. What happens when those leaders and teachers are not worthy of honour, or are teaching that which is contrary to our own (family/ social/ cultural or traditional) culture?
Political Correctness is ultimately a game where the one who is speaking is free to speak, and anyone who speaks against him/her is in the wrong, unless of course what you are saying, has the support of the majority of the 'socio-political' elites. In truth, Free Speech is a Myth
