Outrage over anti-Islam graffiti

Townsville Intercultural Centre director Farvardin Daliri said the Islamic community had always been a strong part of the Townsville community.

“There has never been any issues before,” he said.

“We take pride in being Australian and religion is not an issue as long as you respect the religion of other people.”

“Respec?”  Sounds familiar. Its a one way street for Muselmaniacs.

 Dr Daliri has a long history of helping communities on their path to empowerment, harmony and social inclusion. 

Really? Farvardin Daliri  works for Australia’s ‘Multicultural Council’. His job depends on keeping this dangerous fantasy alive.

THE latest graffiti attack has shocked community leaders after mindless vandals plastered racist slurs across a property sign on a busy Townsville road.

Anti-Islamic graffiti, which reads “Get some pork on your fork, Islam is not welcome. Go home” was sprayed on to a “For Sale” sign on vacant land on Dalrymple Rd in Mount Louisa.

Townsville City Council’s planning and development committee chairman Tony Parsons condemned the attack as “bewildering” and “disappointing”.

“I have absolutely no idea why people would say that,” he said.

“I find it particularly disappointing that people would express their feelings in this way and on public and private land.”

Townsville Intercultural Centre director Farvardin Daliri said it was “not a good message” but it was not a representation of the region’s cultural acceptance.

“Townsville has progressed and it is my home and people will never allow a shadow of disappointment in terms of our relationships,” he said. “These small incidents are to be taken only as that, an incident. People of Townsville have been generous and accepting.”

“Anyone who does these things has to know that the overwhelming majority of people in Townsville are accepting.”

Cr Parsons was unsure why the site had been targeted and was unaware of plans to use the land for a place of worship.

“I have no idea what the plans with the site are but I have not seen any plans for a mosque to go there,” he said.

“It would be in the vicinity of the Mount Louisa realignment and the land could possibly be included in that.”

Mr Daliri said the Islamic community had always been a strong part of the Townsville community.

“There has never been any issues before,” he said.

“We take pride in being Australian and religion is not an issue as long as you respect the religion of other people.

“We are Australians of all different sorts and that is a binding factor.”

The sign was blacked out from a previous graffiti attack about a month ago which was not believed to be discriminatory.

Cr Parsons said the private landowners were notified to remove the graffiti three weeks ago.

“There have been issues around the site because it is not a council-owned building and we can’t do anything,” Cr Parsons said.

“We are restricted on how we do things and are working to see it removed.”

  1. “…religion is not an issue as long as you respect the religion of other people.”

    Mustards demanding respect is the issue. The Sydney riots were demanding respect. Muhammad refusing to stand for the court is demanding respect. All the tantrums about mishandling the quran are ragheads demanding respect for their religion.

    Religion is an issue because islam is not worthy of respect. Calling it a religion does not entitle it to respect. It’s the delusion blathering of a 7th century criminal madman; we dont have to respect that.

  2. When Muslims demand “respect” they are demanding that we hold them in fear. To be feared is their right as Muslims. Every time there is a terrorist attack they come out saying they are “proud” to be Muslim.
    Thus they are demanding (ironically) “Islamophobia”.

  3. How long has there been a muslim community in Townsville? My guess is not pre 1990.
