You know it’s Australia Day when Fairfax newspapers run opinion articles violently attacking Australia’s:
- flag (“You can’t believe in multiculturalism and support a flag that asserts the primacy of the Anglo race.”}
– history (“The wind-stench of bodies burned in bonfires hangs heavy upon the nation’s conscience and in the clouds.”)
- constitutional monarchy (“The democratic and egalitarian assertion of our national sovereignty provoked during Bodyline and the Great Depression continues to serve us well on Australia Day 2013. I believe that reflecting on those events will eventually hasten the approach of an Australian republic…”}
Meanwhile, happy new arrivals – little daunted by our flag, history or monarchy – celebrate their adoption by this great land:
About 17,000 people from 145 countries around the world will become Australian citizens on Saturday’s Australia Day...
Happy Australia Day, its all our fault:
An astonishing spate of shootings in Sydney seems largely the work of one ethnic group, identified only deep in this Sydney Morning Herald report. Yet the only culture blamed is the Australian one: Australians drive bored Muslim men to violence
But hey, there’s nothing Jooliar can’t fix:
(Sydney Morning Herald blurb via Tim Blair, who has more.)
Not wanting to eat meat sacrificed to a strange god is “divisive” and “racist”.
Geeks from the state-run media and the Sydney Moonbat Herald would force halal down your throat, if only they could.
A candidate for Bob Katter’s fledgling political party declared his preference for buying ”guaranteed non-halal meat” so his money does not ”go to the Muslim community”.
Jamie Cavanough, who is standing for Katter’s Australian Party in Sydney’s most marginal federal seat, Greenway, is under fire for the apparently divisive comments he made to a community forum in one of the city’s most ethnically diverse areas.
Katter’s Australian Party played down the comments on Friday, describing them as a non-issue.

“Some Australians want crunchy peanut butter, others want smooth peanut butter, some Australians want halal meat and some want non-halal meat – these are the great freedoms we enjoy in this country,” the party’s national director Aidan McLindon told Fairfax Media.

Meat the fearless Hamas kidz!
Hamas Top Dog, Ismail Haniyeh, is delighted:
“This is the generation that will bring victory to its people and will liberate their land,”
I get it: that’s what they mean by “jihad is taking the kids to school”– Hamas formally teaching kids to be terrorists
Last month, senior Hamas commander Zaher Jabarin said in a video interview published later on the IDF blogthat Hamas labors “day and night” in educating Palestinian children in Gaza to become suicide bombers.
This photo with Haniyeh was taken at the same ceremony:

Someone whose family has known terrorists and who works for one of the most anti-Israel organizations in the territories wouldn’t lie, would she? A small detail about an “eyewitness” to an IDF shooting
And some very good news:
Major explosion reported at Fordow underground Iranian nuclear facility
An explosion deep within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility has destroyed much of the installationand trapped about 240 personnel deep underground, according to a former intelligence officer of the Islamic regime.
If true this is very, very big.
Would be nice, but don’t hold your breath. Who the hell are the ‘secularists’ anyway? The Facebook kidz?

Jihad group says gas plant jihad massacre was only the beginning, promises “dozens of Merahs”
Mohamed Merah was the sadistic jihadist who murdered seven people, including three Jewish children, in France last year. Now the jihadists responsible for the jihad mass murders at the Algerian gas plant are promising more such jihad massacres in France. “Jihadist group delivers chilling threat to France,” from The Local, January 22 via JW.

“Violent Extremism” Out, “Global Jihad” In?
Written by: Diana West
Willary Clinton, secretary of state:
“The United States has to be as effective in partnering with the non-jihadists, whether they fly a black flag or any other color flag, to be successful.”
So the black flag of jihad is not the flag of jihad? 1.5 gazillion muselmaniacs around the world would riot to differ……

The unexpected news of SecState Clinton’s appearances on the Hill yesterday is the “spreading jihadist threat.” The news is not that it’s spreading, or that it’s a threat, but rather that Hillary Clinton invoked the term “jihadist.” Repeatedly. In both the Senate hearing and in the House hearing after lunch, during which, presumably, Obama administration speech commissars could have emergency-texted her that the terminology of O-choice remains “violent extremism.” But no. Clinton talked “global jihad” all day, even if she did echo the same old Bush-Obama-disaster-policy that believes strengthening/stabilizing the new “regimes” of the Arab Spring is the way to combat it. Never mind that the jihadists and the regimes share a common goal: Islamically correct (sharia) totalitarianism.
Live-tweeting yesterday’s proceedings, I first logged the J-phrase at 9:52 am EST, writing: “Clinton notes `global jihadist threat.’ A first?”
Ted Nugent Suggests He’s Ready For Armed Revolt Against ‘Evil, Dangerous’ Obama
“And if you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies.”
When colonial and British troops assembled at the North Bridge in Concord, Mass. in 1775 a standoff broke when one soldier opened fire. While it’s still unclear which side fired the first shot, it was later immortalized by poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, who suggested that “the shot heard ’round the world” was fired by an American. Who, the argument goes, Nugent is presenting himself as here. (Pat Dollard)
