I’d love to report all those Muslim spokesman rejecting this poison:
, during a day-long conference sponsored by a radical Islamic organisation.
Hizb ut-Tahrir, a fundamentalist group that calls for the establishment of a caliphate stretching from the Middle East to Indonesia, hosted the event at Lidcombe, whichÂ drew about 1000 people…
Muslims obligated to resist democracy, say radicals— think Bilal Merhi is a ‘radical?’
The keynote speaker, Dr Mohammad Jeelani, said the West had decided to ‘’plant a cancer in the Muslim world’’, and that cancer was the state of Israel.
The group openly rejects democratic government and tells Muslims in Australia to boycott elections.
(Boycott elections?Â We’ll know they’re serious when they tell them to boycott welfare.)
If this is a perversion of Islam, I’d expect Muslims to fight it furiously – not least to protect the good name of their faith. If it is in fact a mainstream interpretation, I’d expect the Federal Government to limit immigration of people hostile to our freedoms.
(‘Limit?’ Â How about reverse?)
Update: Keysar (the moderate) Trad tries damage control:
Chairman of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia,Â Keysar Trad, said the views of Hizb ut-Tahrir were not shared by the majority of mainstream Australian Muslims. “We would like to see the conflict in Afghanistan resolved peacefully and Australian troops return home safely,” he said.
