You’ve probably already heard the federal government wants to banÂ blowing out birthday candlesÂ in childcare centres. But you probably haven’t read Health Minister Tanya Plibersek’sÂ truly bizarreÂ press conference defending the decision. Read her answers to journalists’ questions if you want to know why freedom is under assault in Australia.Â

Sofia, BulgariaÂ â€” Defying substantial German and French pressure to not explicitly name Hezbollah as the terror group behind the bombing of a tour bus that killed one Bulgarian national and five Israelis in July 2012, the Bulgarian authorities haveÂ blamedÂ Hezbollah operatives for the murders.
Bulgaria’s interior minister Tsvetan TsvetanovÂ declared, “We have established that the two were members of the militant wing of Hezbollah,” and, “There is data showing the financing and connection between Hezbollah and the two suspects.”
Writing atÂ Frontpagemag.com, Bruce Bawer discusses Scandanavian press coverage of yesterday’s attempt on the life of Lars Hedegaard. A veteran Danish journalist and historian, Hedegaard is editor of the new weekly newspaperÂ Dispatch International,Â for which I am DC correspondent. I invite readers toÂ visit our English-language siteÂ where all content is free this week in view of the apparent jihadist attack (with a gun) on a lion of liberty (who uses a laptop).
People should see exactly the kind of articles and opinon pieces that “causes” assassination attempts today inÂ Europa IslamicaÂ — Islamized Europe. I also invite you to subscribe toÂ DI’sÂ English-language online edition, now more than ever, to support Lars, liberty and a free press (simply email Dispatch International and someone will contact you with subscription information: email@example.com). The media reaction, from here to there, illustrates why. We live in untenable, unbearable times due directly to the deep and wide incursion of Islam’s culture of violence and draconian law into Western societyÂ and the media don’t know how to or want to report it.Â This becomes terrifying clear in the reportage (or lack thereof) on a fellow journalist and historian — who happens also, at age 70, to pack a powerful punch — when he was very nearly killed this week most likely for refusing to bow to that culture and that law.
Not so our colleagues in the press, as case coverage demonstrates.
Bruce Bawer, a resident of Norway, highlights local media’s perfectly disgusting reaction, which comes in two parts: demonizing Lars for writing “hateful,” “reprehensible” things about Muslims, then standing by, smugly Voltaire-like, Lars’s right to write such “hateful,” “reprehensible” things.Â Yes, he’s a sewer, they insist (to placate Islam), but let the sewer flow (to pat themselves on the back).Â How empty.
Sharia discriminates against non-believers, atheists and apostates.
I have seared in my memory the brutal persecutions and executions of many atheists and scientists for the “crime” of critical thinking. Â My stand is about supporting freedom of expression, freedom of religion or no-religion. I stand for human rights in order to support equal rights for all citizens despite our gender, age, sexuality, religion or ethnicity.
I believe this is everyone’s battle, including progressive, secular and liberal Muslims.
Euro-dhimmies pressurise Bulgaria not to name Â Hezbollah in terror attack
The United States considers Hezbollah a terrorist organization. The EU does not, and linking the group to the Bulgarian attack will increase pressure on it to do so. France and Germany had pressured investigators not to publicly name Hezbollah as responsible for the bombing, according to a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media….
Here’s the thing. Europe never had a moral compass. Europe lives free thanks to the blood and treasure of America. They are in no position of moral authority. And they should haveÂ nothingÂ to say expecially where slaughtered Jews are concerned.
The Commentator has exclusively learned that today, the Bulgarian government will implicate, though likely not name the terrorist group Hezbollah in its report on the 2012 bus bombing that has been the subject of much speculation over the past six months.
The Commentator has learned that both the German and French governments have both piled pressure on the Bulgarians to “use nuanced language” in the report, for fear that Bulgaria may be the focus of future attacks if Hezbollah is openly named.
The Bulgarian government, it has been stated by leading sources, has been informed through ‘back channels’ that there will be serious repercussions from Hezbollah if it is to publically and overtly name the group. This information comes despite strong pressure from the US government to make clear that the bombing was indeed the work of the Lebanese terrorist outfit.
Watch this long and silly CNN piece with no connection to reality at all, or to the 270 million victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations and enslavement. Why didn’t the silly reporter ask Nihad Awad about his attendance with the annihilationist Ahmadinejad at the OIC sharia summit in Cairo this week? And the BBC did a full hour of coverage on the BBC.
Our immigration and multicultural programs were overseen by politicians either dangerously naive or wilfully blind. And the journalists who self-censored any criticism are as culpable:
AUSTRALIAN authorities are co-operating with international investigators to trace the activities of an “Australian man” identified as the bombmaker for a deadly terrorist attack in Bulgaria (pictured above) now blamed on Hezbollah, prompting calls for a global crackdown on the organisation…

They are called “homegrown terrorists,” citizens of Western countries highly prized by Islamist militant groups because they can move across borders and carry out attacks easier than people from Middle East and South Asian countries closely identified with terrorism.
