Manufacturing History at a Hundred Miles an Hour
Â Many Aboriginal people, like boxer Anthony Mundine, look to Islam as a way of re-connecting with their roots.Â (Aussie Muslim Net)
Sure. Kunta Kinte sends his regards. Â Ask Mike Tyson or other ignorant blacks who have converted to Islam, the ideology of their slave-masters. They all come with the same mental baggage….
The Aussie Muslim Net even digs up Malcolm X:
- The late African-American leader, Malcolm X, played a very important role for Aboriginal Muslims.Â Â (spit) Most Australian Aboriginals have never heard of him!

“As a vehicle for the reconstruction of an Indigenous identity, Islam produces not only new connections to the past, but new strategies for connecting with the non-Indigenous world in the present and future.”
Indigenous Australians are increasingly finding in Islam the possibility of reconnection with lost Indigenous traditions and a model of community unavailable elsewhere. But this is not a new story. From the Makassan trepang fisherman of Arnhem Land, the Malay pearl-divers of Broome, through the Afghan camel drivers of the interior, Muslims have lived and worked in Australia for over three centuries, and were among the earliest peoples to form connections with Indigenous Australians. Islam Dreaming tells the stories of Australia’s Indigenous Muslims.
A dose of reality:
Islam destroys Aboriginality – Destructive Muslim fishermen:Â Part 1 of 3
Islam is targeting Aboriginals by feeding them a false rosy picture of the first contact with Muslims who came to take from Aboriginal land along with false tales of ‘similarities’ etc!Â Â At a recent Brisbane conference ‘Challenges and Opportunities for Islam and the West – The Case of Australia’ (3-5/3/08), Ms Peta StephensonÂ presented a paperÂ ‘Reaffirming Aboriginality through Allah: Indigenous Muslims in Australia’Â promoting this rosy view, absurdly linking Aboriginality with Islam and promoting the view that the world was Muslim!Â In reality Aboriginality is destroyed by Islam (see also parts 2, 3 – to come).

Islam & Aboriginality – 2
The first encounter with Muslim traders disrupted Aboriginal ‘balance’, left evil in their world and a belief that they were ‘black’ and would be forever impoverished and dominated. eg:
“In the here and now, there will always be strife, poverty and domination by Others. This, I suggest, is a previously unrecorded legacy of contact between Aborigines and Indonesians.”Â Australian Folklore 11, 1996 131)Â
