* with thanks to Mullah Lodabullah:
* We have in our midst some of the most delusional, demented distortionists, spin-doctors, appeasers and suckers for anarcho-socialism and Islamic causes in the history of mankind. One of them, a doctor Gideon Polya, believes he should be the self-appointed spokesman for Muhammedan causes in Australia.
Doc Polya shamelessly waves the black flag of Islamofascism and tells us we got it all wrong. We are racist, xenophobic, rednecks and jihad is nothing but ‘inner struggle’-
In some cases a simple laxative does the trick, but unfortunately it doesn’t cure the mental flatulence of this good doctor.
‘Inner struggle’ also doesn’t work very well against the global jihad…
AUSTRALIA has just had another politician and Mainstream media feeding frenzy of salivation, Islamophobia and threat to the beleaguered Muslim community as a result of intemperate and abusive comments made by an Australian Muslim cleric Sheikh Feiz Muhammed, leader of the Global Islamic Youth Centre, Liverpool, Sydney (for a recent report ).
In short, Australia-born Sheikh Muhammed variously made comments on “jihad” (actually Islamic spiritual struggle but to racist, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic Western media and politicians a “red button” synonymous with “terrorism”). However his sermon also included words that could have IMPLIED “violent jihad” as opposed to “spiritual struggle” (and hence possibly violating Australia’s anti-terrorism laws with a possible sentence of 15 years in prison â€“ the maximum punishment for intentionally recruiting (including inciting and encouraging) a person to participate in terrorism, according to a top human rights lawyer Lex Lasry QC).
Jihad literally means struggle in the way of God and is sometimes referred to as the sixth pillar of Islam. Thus jihad is a spiritual struggle against weakness and darkness. However jihad has the connotation of more active, collective struggle as in the Christian term “crusade” – thus Christians can have non-violent “crusades” against poverty, ignorance and injustice based on Words and certainly had a succession of violent Middle Ages “crusades” (Deeds) against Indigenous Muslims living in the Holy Land. Notoriously assisted by anti-Arab anti-Semitic and Islamophobic Western politicians, Racist Zionists and media, jihad has become synonymous in the West with “terrorism”.
A pro-peace, anti-racism agnostic humanist analysis
Vastly more serious than heat-of-the-moment intemperate racial abuse by an unwisely abusive and intemperate cleric (serious as that is, of course) were the comments by politicians and others getting on the Islamophobic bandwagon (good politics in currently disturbingly anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic and xenophobic Australia) e.g. take away his residence, citizenship, passport, job etc. – thus fanning the flames of xenophobia even further.
The harsh reality is that Muslims in Australia are constantly abused (a) collectively by politicians and other commentators through the Mainstream media on any pretext – as this episode illustrates – and (b) at a personal level – e.g. a mosque burned down; a crowded mosque room full of women and children shot at;
* When and where, doctor Polya? Last time we checked, synagogues were attacked, Jews were bashed and 4 churches shot up and burned in the Muhammedan backlash to the Cronulla ‘riots’- which caused the ‘backlash’ in the first place.
These stupid Christian soldiers brought it on themselves, right?
* Let me guess, doctor: When have you ‘reverted’ to the Muhammedan faith? You wouldn’t be an enemy agent on the Arab payroll?
