* Goodness! Will these people ever come up with something original?
* “Want Peace? Submit or pay the Jiziyah!”
AUSTRALIA faces a “London-type bombing” if relations between Muslims and the intelligence and police authorities do not improve, an influential Islamic youth leader has warned.
* ‘Submit and pay the jiziyah. And stop interfering in Muslim business, you filthy kuffars…’
* ‘Islam is Peace’ bombs in Londonistan
Fadi Rahman, who runs one of Sydney’s biggest youth centres at Lidcombe in the city’s west, said overseas Islamic elements were attempting to radicalise Muslim youth with their hardline ideologies.
* Well Fadi, why not point them out so ASIO can arrest and deport them?
But in a warning that will resonate with Australian authorities, Mr Rahman said Muslims did not trust ASIO or the Australian Federal Police and that the bungled terror case against Gold Coast doctor Mohamed Haneef had worsened the situation. “The biggest problem ASIO and the federal police have is that no one in the Islamic community trusts them enough to give them a heads-up about anything,” Mr Rahman told The Australian.
* Hmmm. Likewise Fahdi, likewise. Why should we trust you?
“Look at the Haneef thing – why would we trust these guys when all you see is one fumble after another? People are afraid.”
* Afraid of what, Fahdi? Afraid of getting caught?
Dr Haneef, an Indian national, was detained in July on suspicion of having played a role in the foiled terrorist attacks in London and Glasgow, but the case fell apart after a series of prosecution mistakes.
* Haneef was a brother in arms with Bilal Abdulla, the Iraqi doctor who drove a Jeep into the front of Glasgow airport
Mr Rahman said a battle for the hearts and minds of young Muslims was under way in Australia between influences from overseas wanting to radicalise youths and more moderate influences in Australia.
Mr Rahman said he believed he had been the target of a recruitment attempt but when he responded “defensively” those talking to him said they had merely been joking.
Asked about the anatomy of a recruitment, he said: “Most of the time they start at the local mosque in small groups – they move quickly into the garage, then people’s homes. You get sucked in.”
* There you go: ‘it starts at the mosque’- but..but.. aren’t mosques supposed to be places of worship?
He said the typical recruiter was in their 40s or 50s, “from overseas, well-educated and tapping into young people’s frustrations and anger”.
“I think we are very similar to London,” he said. “There are these individuals from overseas who are basically in their mid-life who have these ideologies and because of the animosity they have experienced in their own countries have deep hatred of the Western world. It’s very easy to tap into the mind of someone who has a low education level, unemployment and who has basically given up on life.
* Where would that deep hatred of the Western world come from, Fahdi?
“The right ingredients are there. We need to do something or what happened in London, a London-type bombing, will happen here.”
* Who is ‘we’ Fahdi? I thought the government is paying YOU to do something and keep the wolves from the door?
The “something” includes programs to give opportunities to Muslim youth and a “less hostile” attitude by the federal Government. Mr Rahman said the Government was spending too much on campaigns directed at people who did not know what was going on – such as the Be Alert, Not Alarmed campaign – but not enough in communities such as southwestern Sydney, where about 250,000 Muslims live. “It’s not like it will be John Smith on the north shore of Sydney who will have information, it will be Mohammed or Ahmed out here,” he says.
Mr Rahman said he and Toufic Mallah, the man he brought into the youth centre to stress moderation, preached non-violence.
* Really? Hmm. But isn’t Islam a ‘Religion of Peace?’
About 50 of the youths at the centre, which has about 460 members aged 10 to 35, are former criminals who have done time in jail. Mr Rahman said they could go “either way”.
* But…but…Mr. Rahman: can’t you control these ‘youth’s?’ Isn’t that what you’re being paid to do?
At the Independent Centre of Research Australia, he runs anger-management programs and has opened a prayer room run by Sheik Mallah. Sheik Mallah said the second chapter of the Koran stressed that “we have made a moderate nation”.
* Hmm. Which verse would that be? I just checked, but perhaps my infidel Koran is a different one? Are you reading Arabic again, Sheik Mallah?
He says non-Muslim Australians should approach their local sheiks if there was anything they did not understand or like about their local Muslim communities. “Come and speak to us,” he said.
* Translation: “We are inviting you to accept Islam, so you will be safe. Submit or pay the jiziyah…”
Mr Rahman brokered a deal with IBM last week under which the computer company will mentor 10 youths from the centre and offer three traineeships.
* Cool. So we will get more Islamic websites?
Mr Rahman said this sort of support gave the young people and their families and friends hope. In the aftermath of the Cronulla race riots (?) in Sydney in 2005 there was progress between Muslim and non-Muslim communities, but since then “things have taken a nasty turn”.
* Hmm. And why would that be?
“The blame game” of all Muslims being blamed for terrorism “will only put people offside”, he said.
“When the shit hits the fan we will all be covered with it. It’s just a matter of time before someone says I’ve had enough. Unless something is done and attitudes change something will happen.
* Simple solution: stop threatening and stop blowing shit up, and we might see some change in attitude, don’t cha think?
“We haven’t learnt our lesson post-September 11, the Bali bombings, the Cronulla riots and the London bombings. There’s deep-seated hatred on both sides. When young Muslims go into other areas they go in with force.
* Who is ‘we’- Rahman? The ummah or the infidels?
“I cop it from both ends – who do you please? Do you please your own community or the wider community? A lot of them are saying don’t waste your time, you will never get anywhere with these people.
Mr Rahman said one of the biggest problems in the Lebanese community was that many of his generation, although they loved their parents, felt caught between two worlds.
* There is a solution to your problem, Rahman: if you want to live in an Islamic state you better pack up and ship out. Australia is not the place for you!

Threats from Muslims over here. Threats, blackmail, riots, ‘marginalisation’, beatings, outright dhimmitude etc in Eurabia. A sampling of the last few weeks:

Riots in Amsterdam and Brussels:
Europe’s no-go zones or SUAs (“sensitive urban areas”) are multiplying. These are areas where the police no longer dares to venture and where Islamists hold sway. Every night since the beginning of last week, ‘youths’ have been torching cars and clashing with police in Amsterdam’s Slotervaart district.
The Amsterdam Moroccans are “shocked” because one of them has been killed by an infidel woman. According to his family, Bilal Bajaka was mentally deranged and had a suicide obsession. Ahmed Marcouch, the Moroccan-born Socialist mayor of Slotervaart, criticized the Dutch authorities for failing to provide adequate health care for Bajaka’s mental problems.
Bilal Bajaka was, however, a personal friend of Mohammed Bouyeri, the Jihadist who ritually slaughtered the Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh in 2004. Bilal’s attack on the two police officers came exactly two years after the arrest of his brother, Abdullah Bajaka, the leader of an alleged plot to blow up an El-Al Boeing at Amsterdam airport. Bilal’s family background is not at all deprived. One of his sisters is a medical doctor, another sister is a Dutch judge….
Reports of ‘sympathy car-b-ques’ in The Hague reach us via Nieuw Religieus Peil, which links to a report in the Telegraaf (NL) telling us how the inhabitants of the The Hague neighborhoods of Transvaal and Schilderswijk are too afraid to press charges of vandalism, which has seen a sharp increase this last week……
Similar events are currently taking place in Brussels, the capital of neighbouring Belgium and of the EU. Last Sunday, demonstrating Turkish youths ransacked an Armenian restaurant in the Sint-Joost-ten-Node borough. According to the owner the police were present at the scene but did not interfere while his establishment was being demolished. The Armenian had to flee for his life…..
Dutch Muslims say they don’t feel at home there.
“I’ve lived here for 40 years and I still don’t feel welcome,” said Atel Alireza, a taxi driver from Turkey. “But I would say things have gotten a lot worse since 9/11.
“People around here look at you more suspiciously than they used to,” he said. “People look at all Muslims like they are about to do something bad.”
Where do people get these crazy ideas?……
