Bernardi is not backing down

Cory Bernardi calling for crack-down on migrants who refused to integrate

Why should he? Since when is it wrong to be right?

Is the Gillard government calling citizens and policitians who oppose the Islamization of this country racist?

What race is ‘Muslim’ again?

Bernardi isn’t backing down (Andrew Bolt)

Opposition parliamentary secretary Cory Bernardi sounds strident to me, but the difficulty comes in trying to argue against him on the facts, rather than the tone:

“Islam itself is the problem – it’s not Muslims,” he told radio station MTR.

I beg to differ. With Muslims comes Islam. And sharia. And a whole lot of demands which will destroy us.

“Muslims are individuals that practise their faith in their own way, but Islam is a totalitarian, political and religious ideology.

“It tells people everything about how they need to conduct themselves, who they’re allowed to marry and how they’re allowed to treat other people.”

Senator Bernardi said Islam had “not moved on” since it was founded and that extremists wanted fundamentalist Islamic rule implemented in Australia.

Column – Shouting “racism” won’t fix this problem

WHEN you hear “racist!’ now, you know some coward is once again just trying to shut a debate he fears he can’t win.

No one who knows the Opposition’s immigration spokesman, Scott Morrison, would dream he’s racist, as so many commentators now imply.

His real offence is that in shadow cabinet he suggested the Coalition tackle an issue of growing public concern before it turned even uglier.

That issue is Muslim integration. And add now the Gillard Government’s new defence of multiculturalism, a policy to fund what divides us that the leaders of France, England and Germany say has failed in their countries.

What broke multiculturalism there is also killing it here. That we have trouble integrating our 400,000 Muslims is beyond question, even if it’s also true that most make fine citizens.

“Most” make fine citizens, Andrew? Why do you say that? If “most” make fine citizens, then our problem is just weeding out the not-fine citizens. But there is a pathology in them that makes them inherently hostile to us. Just listen to what Muslims say and how they behave. They might work, pay taxes, obey the law, but they are hostile to us and will attack us along with their brethren as soon as their imam gives them the cue.  Just consider India at Partition. All those Muslims who were ordinary people then suddenly started killing Hindus. Or the mob in Cairo which assaaulted that journalist. They are ALL dangerous, because they are taught from birth that we are filth.

And, as I have said before, what will they be like when Australia is no longer a rich country, and we no longer can afford to pay them just to live and breed?

Here are some statistics from a minority that’s actually smaller than our Buddhist one. Muslims here are more than twice as likely as the rest of us to be without work. Their children are twice as likely to be jobless, and three times more likely to be poor.

Their imprisonment rates are higher, and all 20 of the people we’ve jailed on terrorism-related offences are Muslim.

The reassurances offered by Muslim leaders are rarely much comfort.

Take Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, for many years Mufti of Australia, despite praising suicide bombers as “heroes” and calling the September 11 attacks “God’s work against oppressors”.

Hilali this week played down Muslim terrorism here by telling The Australian’s Sally Neighbour: “There are people who have the mindset to commit harm, but no one has the capacity to execute anything.”

As long as we keep catching them, we’re safe. But the bigger this community gets, the bigger the threat.

As the Labor Government admits in its own 2010 White Paper on terrorism: “The scale of the problem will continue to depend on factors such as the size and make-up of local Muslim populations.”

So with the number of Muslims here projected to increase by 80 per cent by 2030, any party that won’t discuss immigration betrays its duty to preserve harmony and public safety.

And any party that thinks the answer is just more multicultural tribalism is a fool.

Who’s invading us?


Sarkozy now wants the law to rein in Islam
“He said the French had “paid dear” for their blindness towards immigration during the 1980s, when debate was taboo.”

Sarkozy calls for debate on Islam

PARIS, Feb. 18 (UPI) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy says he wants to launch a national debate on the role and influence in France of Islam, the country’s second-largest religion.

Last week Sarkozy joined British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in announcing “multiculturalism is not working” and setting out to formalize the relationship between Islam and the fiercely secular state of France, France24 reported Friday.

Sarkozy’s call for the debate is viewed as a move to woo voters from the far-right National Front party.

“It is out of the question that French society should be influenced by Islam,” Sarkozy said. “This is a secular country.”

France24 said one member of the conservative Union for a Popular Movement told right-wing publication Le Figaro: “The role of Islam in France is going to be a central issue in the 2012 presidential campaign.”

Although Catholicism runs deep in France, secularism is enforced by a 1905 law stating:

“The Republic does not officially recognize, pay salaries for, nor subsidize any religion.

“It is henceforth forbidden to erect or display any religious signs or emblems publicly, and political meetings may not take place in places of worship.”

Legislation in 2004 banned the display of religious symbols, including crucifixes, in schools, and last autumn the ban was extended to include the wearing of the full Islamic veil in public places.

The law also bans religious processions but does not address prayer meetings in the city streets, some resulting from overcrowding issues.

“We need to have a debate on prayer meetings in the streets,” France24 reported Sarkozy said to his right-wing faithful. “In a secular country, we cannot tolerate having a public call to prayer.

8 thoughts on “Bernardi is not backing down”

  1. “If politeness and ceremony be observed toward Mohammedans, they imagine they are feared and become arrogant; but in showing severity and rudeness, they are impressed with fear and respect, and they are supple and manageable.”

    –North China Herald,1867

    Fitzgeralds prayer:

    This is not a race issue. Its about ideology:

    Stop, for god’s sake stop, importing trouble—and Muslim immigrants, as a whole, necessarily mean trouble, in all lands where the political and legal institutions, and social arrangements, are flatly contradicted by the Shari’a. Muslims are obligated to change or tear down those institutions, in order to remove all “obstacles to Islam.” It is not special or individual malice that prompts that attitude. That is their duty, a central duty. Why not come to fully and soberly understand that duty, and out of a minimal sense of self-preservation, cease to import those into our lands (America, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Australia, and every other place that has so generously admitted, under a twisted definitiion of “refugees,” people who do not, and can not, wish our ways or institutions or constitutions well.

    Hugh Fitzgerald

  2. “Notwithstanding its fair show of outward observance, and its severe legal enactments, there is something in Islam which strikes at the very root of morals, poisons domestic life, and (in its truest sense) disorganizes society.”

    “Freedom of judgment is crushed, and a barrier has been raised not merely against the advance of Christianity, but against the progress of Civilization itself. It is impossible to account for this peculiar feature in Muhammadan nations by attributing it to the peculiarities of Oriental races, or other accidental circumstances. The great cause lies in the religious system which they profess, which binds them hand and foot.”

    “For everything in religion, in law, in life, and in thought, has been measured for all time. Muhammadanism admits of no progress in morals, law, or commerce. It fails to regenerate the man, and it is equally powerless in regenerating the nation.”

    Reverand P.T. Hughes in the Preface to his book: “Notes on Mohammedanism” (1894) (available in reprint).

  3. South Australia’s response will be to “educate” people for tolerance & social cohesion – why bother with an intermediate phase that has failed everywhere else it is tried. The “secret herbs & spices” are little more than soursobs & thistles.

    Our schools told to keep the faith

    [SCHOOL curriculum must include education on minority religions, the State Government has been warned.

    The rewrite is a bid to reduce racism and intolerance.

    The final report of the Taskforce on Religious Diversity demands government “leadership” in promoting social cohesion and “special attention” on youth.]

    * “Social cohesion” won’t follow from a “god” who demands that its followers reject friendship with Christians and Jews (5:51). It is delusion to think otherwise.

    [Recommendations include:

    WEEKLY “time for reflection” in State Parliament where MPs can speak about the role of faith in society.

    REQUESTING businesses allow staff to take leave for non-Christian religious holidays.

    TRAINING all public and private sector employees on “ethical conduct” and and how to minimise discrimination in the workforce.

    The taskforce argued formation of a new Australian curriculum provided “opportunities for students to learn about diverse belief systems”. “Education is an important vehicle for addressing misconceptions, ignorance and prejudice about religions among young people,” the report states.

    “It is important for all SA children to be consistently educated about all major belief systems, such as Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism.]

    * Multiculti madness.

  5. The Halal epidemic within the UK – updated

    They HAVE to tell us what we’re buying

    Analysis by Richard North

    Even though I’ve seen it done thousands of times, you never really get used to watching animals being killed. But as long as we eat meat, it has to be done. And it is our duty as a society to ensure that the procedure is carried out humanely and with as much dignity as possible.

    Society also has to respect religious freedom and rituals, and I don’t have a problem with that. I am, however, uneasy that the laws that require humane killing of animals for meat – particularly that they must be rendered insensible before being slaughtered – do not apply to Jews for their kosher meat and Muslims for halal foods.

  6. This inhumane and absolutely cruel method to kill animals in ritualised form, is inimical to the traditions of Europe. This good and decent tradition, of not inflicting prolonged pain on animals, is one of the main features of a decent civilised society. Why? Because we show compassion to not just those who can speak, but to the defenceless and the speechless.

    This butchery has now become gargantuan in scale. Just imagine, in just 30 years, our once civilised society has reverted to ritualised animal sacrifice, and is quite literally swimming in an ocean of blood, as animals are killed slowly.

    How did this happen? How did we allow it? Why is the RSPCA, an organisation that is up in arms over a few badgers, is silent while halal slaughter is all around them. Why are silent?

    If there is a God, and he judges us, we will be found wanting, for we once were civilised, and knew good from evil.

  7. Christians are forbidden to eat sacrifices given to false gods.
    Halal meat is sacrificed to a false god, on the order of a false prophet, to protect a corrupt society, Islam.
    Christians must have nothing to do with it.

  8. Arent we lucky our very own sweet Prime Minister is Godless. If she did hold Christian values she would never have been given a free load from this country. Her parents were made welcome here because they did not cause any trouble, like most of the imports of that generation – like my own husband. They had great gratitude to the country who took them from ration books in the UK, poverty in Germany and so on.

    She has been Educated in this country, at great expence to the taxpayer, then the bitch sells us out. She should remember who pays her legal salary, the taxpayers of Australia.

    I want to move to Cory Bernardi’s Electorate. With a name like Bernardi, he surely knows the genorosity of his country. I am – without my migrant husband, we would never have produced three upstanding citizens, with a love of Australia.

    Sadly my man would turn in his grave if he knew what Islam has done to his family and the country he called home, and loved it will everything he had.
