Union, Labor, Muslim: what more does Australia need?
Before union boss turned western Sydney MP Ed Husic takes his seat in the 43rd parliament of Australia, history will be made.
Mr Husic, the son of Yugoslavian migrants, is the first Muslim elected to federal parliament and will today become the first MP sworn in by the Chief Justice of the High Court with his hand on a copy of the Koran.
The Blacktown-based former national president of the Communications Electrical and Plumbing Union arrived in Canberra yesterday carrying with him the Koran of his proud migrant parents who will watch on from the public gallery as he takes his oath.
While downplaying his religion and the significance of his contribution to Australian political history, the MP for Chifley said “getting elected to parliament, full stop, is an enormous privilege”.
But Mr Husic conceded others might well see his oath as a significant moment for Muslim Australians.
“Given my background, there are some people taking a small slice of pride or happiness.”
Sheikh Shady al-Suleiman said Muslims loved Australia but rejected interference in the practice of their religion. ‘’Keep away from our affairs,’’ he said.
When your religion is in the main street, strolling about in Mohammed’sÂ Snuggie and viewing the world through a mail slot, it’s not justÂ your affair, mate. More from Ardati:
‘’We dress like this because it is the command of Allah, not any man.’’
There you go: Â Allah commands, the believers have no choice. But at the same time they tell us ‘its their choice’ and we cannot tell people what to wear. Confusing indeed, especially for Australians who are unfamiliar with Allah’s duplicitous ways, because Allah is the best of schemers, (Koran 3:54)
To clear things up, I did check my Koran (King Fahd Academie translation) which is the most precise. Here’s what it says:
Sura 33, Al-azab, 59:
O prophet! Tell your wives (sic) and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils)all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way) that will be better……
Islamically correct one eye burqa
So then: the only question that remains is why the lies and why the denials?
The answer should be easy: Western useful idiots are demanding that we respect ‘their right’ Â to wear what they want. Indeed, what could be worse than Westerners telling Muslim women what to wear?
However, where the soldiers of Allah Â have the upper hand, Muslim women have to chose between the freedom sack or else:
Chechnya forcing women to wear Islamic dress
It’s bitterly ironic how often we’re told that Muslim women in the West wear Islamic dress freely and proudly. Yet Islamic spokesmen in the West never seem to get around to addressing this kind of coercion.
“Rightist” Dutch parties agree on minority coalition
AMSTERDAM â€” The leaders of Dutch “right-wing” Â parties say they’ve concluded an agreement for a minority government supported by the anti-Islam party of Geert Wilders.
How could Â anyone possibly Â be “right wing?” How can anyone be “anti-Islam?” Â Where would we be without Mohammedan inventions?
Mark Rutte, head of the Liberal VVD party, announced the accord with the Christian Democratic Alliance and Wilders’ Freedom Party, which will back the government without sitting in the Cabinet.
Together, they control 76 of parliament’s 150 seats.
The accord came 3 1/2 months after deadlocked parliamentary elections. Policy details of the alliance were not immediately released.
The accord Tuesday among the party leaders needs approval of the parties’ parliament members. Several members of the Christian Democrats have objected to a government that relies on the anti-immigrant Wilders for its survival.
We all know that the witness of a lowly female is worth little, if anything in Islam. Good bye, Ingrid. You deserve everything that’s coming your way. Couldn’t happen to a nicer person. (H/T ZIP)
RNS) The Islamic Society of North America, the largest Muslim group in the U.S. and Canada, on Tuesday (Sept. 28) named a gregarious Sudanese-born Virginia imam as its new president.
Imam Mohamed Magid, executive director of the 5,000-family All Dulles Area Muslim Society in Sterling, Va., will succeed outgoing president Ingrid Mattson, who in 2006 became the first woman elected to the position.
I don’t know which is more shocking. This footage of how Muslims have taken over parts of London and enforced the sharia against British laws, or the fact that this was done by a French media outlet when Paris is as bad or worse.
Europe votes in law to send back illegal Afghans, Pakistanis (well, not really. They just wanna be seen doing something. The built in escape hatch prevents any deportation: “no-one shall be returned if this would entail the risk that the person concerned would be subject to persecution, torture or inhumane or degrading treatment”)
A video recently released byÂ Election Journal shows New Black Panther Party member King Samir Shabazz railing against the media and defending his remarks calling for the death of white babies.
The video, which includes a date stamp of August 9, 2010 and says it takes place in Harlem, features the hate-spewing King Samir attacking Fox: “This is what King Samir and the Philadelphia chapter, along with the guidance and leadership of attorney Malik Shabazz, has been doing that you don’t hear about from Fox Jews; I’m sorry, Fox News.”
“Let’s talk about the little black babies that you use as alligator bait,” he adds:
I can’t take it anymore. If one more person sends me that e-mail about Hillary and the Black Panthers, I’ll have to be dragged away screaming in a straitjacket.
You know the e-mail I’m talking about. It accuses Hillary of helping the Black Panthers get away with torture and murder during the early 1970s. With the 2004 presidential race drawing near, the spam mills are creaking to life, flooding the Internet once more with this agitprop classic.
Unfortunately, the e-mail mingles good information with bad, sowing more confusion than enlightenment. Some versions, for instance, carry the byline of radio talk jock Paul Harvey, who says he did not write it. Such misrepresentations help Hillary defenders dismiss the e-mail as a hoax.
The story is no hoax, though. Its basic elements can be found in respected Hillary biographies and exposes such as Barbara Olson’s “Hell to Pay,” David Brock’s “The Seduction of Hillary Rodham,” Joyce Milton’s “The First Partner” and Carl Limbacher’s “Hillary’s Scheme.”
Here are the facts.
In May 1969, fishermen discovered the body of Black Panther Alex Rackley floating in Connecticut’s Coginchaug River. Rackley’s captors had clubbed him, burned him with cigarettes, scalded him with boiling water and stabbed him with an ice pick before finally shooting him in the head.
New Haven detectives learned that the Panthers suspected Rackley of being a police informer. Panther enforcers had tied him to a chair and tortured him for hours. Police arrested eight Panthers and later extradited Panther leader Bobby Seale from California, after a witness accused Seale of ordering Rackley’s death. (1)
Campus radicals supported the Panthers. They organized mass protests in support of the so-called “New Haven Nine.” Hillary was right in the thick of it.
By the time she entered Yale Law School in 1969, Hillary was already a radical celebrity on campus. Life magazine had featured Hillary in a piece titled, “The Class of ’69,” which showcased three student activists whom Life’s editors deemed the best and brightest of the year. A line Hillary used in her Wellesley College commencement speech appeared under her photo: “Protest is an attempt to forge an identity.” (2)
At Yale, Hillary helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action â€“ a left-wing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police. (3)
A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical o’rganizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary’s senior thesis supported Alinsky’s call for class warfare. (4)
At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali in the form of left-wing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as “Tommy the Commie.” Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (5)
Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.
“Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977,” reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. “The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley’s torture, got elected to a California school board.” (6)
Hillary’s defenders argue that she played no “significant” role in the New Haven Nine’s defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less “significant” than Charles Garry or “Tommy the Commie” Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.
Indeed, Hillary’s work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. (7) “Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB,” notes historian Stephen Schwartz. (8)
The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary’s initiation into the sinister underworld of the hard-core, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.
Hatched in Pakistan. “Multi-Attack Terror Plot On European Cities,” by Alex Watts forÂ Sky News Online, September 28 (thanks to Â JW:Not to worry; most muslims are peaceful, law abiding citizens who want to build bridges. But you know that already, don’t you?
Intelligence agencies have intercepted a terror plot to launch Mumbai-style attacks on Britain and other European countries, according to Sky News sources.Sky’s foreign affairs editor Tim Marshall said militants based in Pakistan had been planning simultaneous strikes on London and major cities in France and Germany.
He said the plan was in the “advanced but not imminent stage” and the plotters had been tracked by spy agencies “for some time”.
Intelligence sources told Sky the planned attacks would have been similar to the commando-style raids carried out in Mumbai.
Then, Pakistan-based Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba killed 166 people in a series of gun and grenade attacks in the Indian city.
The European plot was unearthed after intelligence sharing between London, France, Germany and the US.
It came as the Eiffel Tower in Paris was evacuated because of a bomb scare for the second time in two weeks….
A German insurance company got into trouble for citing the Koran in its refusal to compensate a Muslim accident victim for the cost of hiring a maid. Muslim men leave the housework to their wives, a clerk for the Gothaer insurance firm argued. The company has apologized.
A Muslim immigrant in Germany who asked his insurance firm to cover the costs of a maid while he recovered from a serious accident had his claim rejected on the grounds that according to his religion, husbands don’t do the housework anyway.
The 79-year-old Algerian man had been seriously injured after being hit by a car and had already received a six-figure sum in damages from the Gothaer insurance company. When he filed an additional claim to cover the costs of running his household because he wasn’t healthy enough to do so himself, an insurance clerk responded by interpreting the Koran as placing the man above the woman.
In her letter, she wrote of Muslim marriage: “It can’t be assumed to resemble a German marriage. According to the patriarchical and traditional view of the man in the Muslim marriage, the husband doesn’t run the household.”
