Australia: Muslims Push For Sharia, Free Halal Food & Madrassas

In your face, 24/7:

Requests for sharia implementation will never end.  No matter how much is granted, more is demanded. the demands for sharia accommodation will not go away, ever.  The challenge is to just keep saying ‘no’.

Australia: Muslims argue for Sharia in the name of multiculturalism

Told ya it was just starting.

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils says “Muslims in Australia should accept the Australian values, and Australia should provide a ‘public sphere’ for Muslims to practise their belief. It takes two to tango.”

Cute, but they are acting as though they are just looking for reciprocity when their demand for Sharia is one without comparison for any other group that has settled in Australia. In asking for legal pluralism,” they want a selective opt-out clause on being Australian.

They dance around the reasons for concern about Sharia. It is supremacist, totalitarian, and not designed for selective implementation: supposedly divine laws do not lend themselves to compartmentalization. Then, of course, there is the actual content of the law, and the observable impact of Sharia everywhere else it has gained strength: tolerance goes down, persecution goes up. Women’s rights decrease, and abusive and invasive enforcement increase. Sharia has never resulted in a free society by Western standards of human rights, because it is not designed to do so.

Our Muselmanic Invaders demand we  rearrange the furniture:

Has any previous group of immigrants demanded so much, with the threat that otherwise it will not fit in?

PREMIER Ted Baillieu has quashed a Muslim organisation’s call for taxpayers to pay for the expansion of Islamic schools and halal food outlets into mainstream suburbs.

AUSTRALIA’S top Muslim organisation wants taxpayers to finance the expansion of Islamic schools and halal food outlets into mainstream suburbs…

In a submission to a federal inquiry into multiculturalism, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils said Muslims were forced to live in enclaves near Islamic schools, mosques and halal food outlets.

Just to create a bit of confusion for the nutroots, make it sound as if the Jews  were on board:

“The Government should invest in expanding services like halal and kosher meat and food outlets as well as faith-based schools,” it said.

If the Government and politicians cannot recognise this as essential, it should no longer accuse the Australian Muslim community of intentionally living in enclaves.” (234 comments on Bolt)

But the Jews are not buying any:

the Executive Council of Australian Jewry has told a Federal Parliament committee on migration that Australia must learn from the failed “anything goes” model of multiculturalism in Europe.

It wants migrants put on probation to enable a “confident assessment of their acceptance of Australian values and laws before granting full citizenship”. (Here’s more)

Mark Durie is hopeful:

Australia Gets It Right on Sharia Implementation

I’m not convinced. Muslims have never integrated or assimilated in any place where they have settled in the dar ul harb.

The Australian Government is holding a national inquiry into multiculturalism.  The Australian newspaper yesterday reported that the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils has requested the introduction of Sharia law under the umbrella of multiculuralism (the AFIC submission can be downloaded here: other submissions are available here).  However, Australian Attorney-General, Robert McClelland has stated that:

Sharia law has no place in the Australian legal system.”

“As our citizenship pledge makes clear, coming to Australia means obeying Australian laws and upholding Australian values.”   (More)

  1. Aussies should write to the Attorney-general commending him on his robust stance against this demand for Sharia in Australia.

    Also write to Bill Shorten, the Assistant Treasurer, objecting to the plans to change Aussie law to allow Sharia finance. Also to their respective Shadows.

    Previous Treasurer Peter Costello was very outspoken against Sharia law in Oz, back in 2005. It’s worth reminding the present AG of that — also Bill Shorten, and Shadow Treasurer.

  2. * commending him on his robust stance against this demand for Sharia

    Didn’t they have a “robust stance” against a “carbon tax” last year?

  3. So the Australian Political Party totally responsible for the Islamic Insurgency has finally got tired of taking it up the arse from their new best Muslim Multicultural friends?

    No the Labor Green Loon Independent Minority Coalition government is as popular as a Turd in a Swimming Pool, it is simply engaging Australians in Hudna, how better to do that, than suddenly declare your Muslim Insurgent lovers are on the nose, not quite a divorce but certainly a Lovers tiff of some proportion.
    They both will simply wait till the next distraction,(free cheese / Meth/ Heroin/ after dinner mints/condoms for pensioners ?) and will be reactivating their 30 year Love Affair like a pair of alley cats on heat, in the meantime it will be the ALP playing the part of an Australian political party dedicated to the well been of Australians.

  4. Push for sharia out of line … Cory Bernardi vindicated for warning against it …

    Quest for Sharia law is out of line
    Miranda Devine

    [THE push to introduce sharia law into Australia by the country’s peak Muslim body is a vindication of Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi, who was vilified last year for warning of the creeping infiltration of the Islamic legal system.]

    * Wilkie had previously demanded that Tony Abbott sack Cory Bernardi for peddling racial hatre … telling the truth about islamisation.

  5. It is so insulting – This attitude that it isn’t fair that they have to fit in with us constantly and to make it fairer we should have to also be fitting in with them.

    Now they are entering illegally en mass, forcing their way in. And they expect us to change to accommodate them, to turn Australia in a mirror image of the failed cesspit they just fled from.

    I feel so condescended when politicians say multiculturalism won’t change anything and will only benefit our society. I don’t feel benefited. And I rue the day some people pleasing politician (like Rudd) tries to score brownie points by allowing Sharia Law.

  6. Folks – please write (WRITE) to all relevant government people and say no to the wishes of the islamic invaders – all relevant government people have to be contacted. This is part of the battle for OUR country . We need people to stand and be counted – please get started today as we have little time.

  7. Australia: Muslims argue for Sharia in the name of multiculturalism

    The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils says “Muslims in Australia should accept the Australian values, and Australia should provide a ‘public sphere’ for Muslims to practise their belief. It takes two to tango.”

    Cute, but they are acting as though they are just looking for reciprocity when their demand for Sharia is one without comparison for any other group that has settled in Australia. In asking for “legal pluralism,” they want a selective opt-out clause on being Australian.

    They dance around the reasons for concern about Sharia. It is supremacist, totalitarian, and not designed for selective implementation: supposedly divine laws do not lend themselves to compartmentalization. Then, of course, there is the actual content of the law, and the observable impact of Sharia everywhere else it has gained strength: tolerance goes down, persecution goes up. Women’s rights decrease, and abusive and invasive enforcement increase. Sharia has never resulted in a free society by Western standards of human rights, because it is not designed to do so.

    One tactic we see here that we have also seen in arguments in defense of Sharia in Britain and against laws being passed in the United States regards Sharia’s supposed adaptability and flexibility. That should not be reassuring. It should be equal cause for alarm. It shows that Sharia is wired for deceptive implementation: People are deliberately deceived from knowing what they are getting, unless they know where to look for information.

    But that doesn’t change the content of the law, as much as apologists wish it could shape-shift like the goo in a lava lamp the moment a non-Muslim notes an unpleasant provision.

    In other words, Sharia is everything, except when it’s nothing in particular. But ultimately, the promise of adaptability demands trust in a reform that has not taken place. It can be adapted. It might be adapted. Except apologists will turn right around and argue there’s nothing wrong with it.

    Caveat emptor. More on this story. “Muslims to push for sharia,” by Patricia Karvelas for The Australian, May 17 (thanks to JW):

    THE nation’s peak Muslim group is using the Gillard government’s re-embracing of multiculturalism to push for the introduction of sharia in Australia, but it says it would be a more moderate variety of Islamic law that fits with Australian values.
    Even if they presented a binding constitution of “moderate” Australian Sharia, it would be immaterial. Where it was in agreement with Australian laws, it would be redundant. Where it disagreed, it would be illegal.

    The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, in a submission to a parliamentary inquiry into the government’s new multiculturalism policy, argues that Muslims should enjoy “legal pluralism”.
    In an interview with The Australian, the organisation’s president, Ikebal Adam Patel, who wrote the submission, nominated family law and specifically divorce as an area where moderate interpretations of sharia could co-exist within the Australian legal system.
    In the submission, the AFIC acknowledges some Muslims believe Islamic law is immutable, regardless of history, time, culture and location.
    “They claim that Muslims may change, but Islam will not,” it says.
    The AFIC argues this is not the case and sharia can be applied in a way that fits in to Australia and is not extreme.
    “This means most of the regulations in Islamic law may be amended, changed, altered, and adapted to social change.
    “Therefore, Muslims Australia-AFIC takes the position that Islamic law is changeable according to the requirements of different places and times, and therefore suits the values shared by Australian people,” the submission says.
    A hardline reading of sharia confers unilateral divorce rights on men, while women who initiate divorce are stripped of their property and financial entitlements.
    A more moderate interpretation and common practice in Islamic countries is to recognise divorce by mutual consent.
    In the interview, Mr Patel said: “I’m saying that instead of letting the extremists within Islam take over the agenda, we are saying there is a path whereby it will work for all the communities in a moderate way.
    “It is important for someone who is Muslim or a practising Jew that aspects of our religion which can be incorporated within the greater legal system are introduced.
    “This is about personal issues about family, and won’t affect any other Australian,” he said.
    “It’s about a system that does not impinge on the rights of any other Australian.”
    The fact that you want your private laws, and a foot in the door for a totalitarian system, are no less unacceptable.

    In its submission to the inquiry, the AFIC says criticisms of sharia as being biased against women and treating them as second-class citizens are wrong.
    “It is important for Muslims to seriously consider this criticism,” the submission says.
    “But it is also important for the Australian government to respect the rights of Muslim women who want to keep and maintain the way they dress, eat and interact with others, as long as such behaviour does not inflict harm to others.
    “Muslims in Australia should accept the Australian values, and Australia should provide a ‘public sphere’ for Muslims to practise their belief. It takes two to tango….

    Time for Muslims to tango elsewhere. You overstayed your welcome, Abdullah. Time to ship out!

  8. they want taxpayers to fund their schools, halal food stores, etc., expansion into the suburbs because they are “stuck” in enclaves. they are so full of crap it exudes out their pores. religious jews live in enclaves as they can’t drive on the sabbath, therefore must live within walking distance of their synagogue. are jews asking taxpayers to build synagogues everywhere so they can live anywhere? is the govt going to fund churches too? buddhist shrines? hindu temples? islam is an even sicker ideology than socialism/communism.

  9. ISLAM MUST BE EXTERMINATED IN THE INTEREST OF HUMANITY. IT IS A MORAL IMPERATIVE.
