A surprising number of foreign fighters joining the rebellion in Syria against the regime of President Bashar Assad hail from Down Under.

A Newspaper Editorial in the Land Down Under Understates the Flaming Obvious:

There is Such a Thing as Treason and There are Those Who are Committing It

Alan Howe’s editorial, published in Australia’s Herald-Sun yesterday (perhaps it should have been published on the fifth of November, not on the fourth, just to make a point).

“There are some ‘Aussies’ we don’t want, or need”.

Click on the link: the accompanying photo depicts one “Abdul Benbrika”, a Muslim jihad gang boss, being escorted out of the Victorian Supreme Court after running afoul of Australian infidel law. – CM

“Treason has always been treated as perhaps the most serious of crimes.

See Dante, Inferno, the Ninth and bottom-most Circle, the circle of the Traitors. – CM

‘Elsewhere, convicted traitors are executed.  Indeed, many Americans wish for whistle-blower Edward Snowden to be killed by the state he has so embarrased with leaks about its information gathering. That’s why he’s hiding in Russia.

‘They tortured Guy Fawkes for weeks after finding the gunpowder he had stockpiled in order to blow up the House of Lords and King James.  The only reason this most infamous of traitors escaped being hanged was because of a leap from the gallows that broke his neck.  Nevertheless, he was still drawn and quartered, and his body parts put on display around England.

‘The Victorian Crimes Act of 1958 details the offence of treason and lists its maximum penalty as life in jail, hanging drawing and quartering having long since been dispensed [with] as a punishment.

‘Which makes you wonder why Algerian-born Abdul Benbrika (Mr Howe: you should have bitten the bullet and written – “Algerian-born pious Muslim jihad plotter Abdul Benbrika” – CM) and his malevolent gang of would-be mass murderers – they planned to blow up the MCG (for the benefit of any non-Aussies reading this who don’t know, that is the hallowed “Melbourne Cricket Ground” – CM) on Grand Final Day in 2005 (that is, on the Grand Final of the footie, not the cricket; the MCG is used for other sports in winter, when cricket is not being played – CM), but couldn’t decide between it and Flemington on Cup Day (as it so happens, I am typing this on Cup Day, November 6th; the day of Australia’s most prestigious, legendary and race – CM) – weren’t charged with treason, rather than the terror counts that will see Benbrika walk free in a little over three years.

‘Right now there are traitors in our midst – and not just those who think like Benbrika.

‘ASIO believes there are more than 200 Australians (that is: more than 200 Australian-passport-possessing Muslims – CM) active in the Syrian civil war (that is: the Syrian jihad – CM), most, if not all, fighting to bring down tyrannical Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

It isn’t, at bottom, his ‘tyranny’ they object to. The Sunni Muslims are trying to overthrow him because he is an Alawite – deemed heretical – and allied with the hated, also deemed heretical, Shiite Muslims. The Shiites are supporting him in order to get at the Sunnis.  The war in Syria is merely the latest instalment of the ongoing internecine warfare between Sunnis and Shiites that has gone on since the death of Mohammed, with few intermissions; it is also morphing into a jihad against the indigenous Christians of Syria, whom everybody in our media generally forgets about, and who if Assad and the Alawites fall, will face genocide or near-genocide at the hands of the triumphant Sunnis who will be attacking them not just because they were allied with and to some extent ‘protected’ by the Alawites, but simply because they are Christian Infidels, period. – CM

‘Assad is your run-of-the-mill Arab head of state (in his case, semi-Muslim rather than wholly Muslim – CM), more than happy to kill children by bombing villages with chemical weapons.

‘Leaving aside the chemical weapons, Israeli intelligence sources estimate 115,000 Syrians have so far been killed in the conflict.

‘Syrians’. There is no such thing. There are Arabs and non-Arabs – the non-Arabs being Muslim Kurds, and Christian Assyrians who just happen to represent the last battered and beleaguered, barely-surviving remnant of the pre-Islamic indigenous population and culture, and some Christian Armenians who ended up in Syria after the Muslim genocide of Armenians in Turkey last century.   There are Muslims and non-Muslims, with the Muslims convinced it is their absolute right to domineer over and dominate the non-Muslims.  And neither the most Islamic of the Sunnis or the most Islamic of the Shiites will ever be prepared to tolerate anything other than a position of absolute and total dominance over everybody else, whether other-sect Muslim, or non-Muslim; and those Muslims who see themselves as Arabs will view all non-Arabs – Muslim or non-Muslim – with contempt, and will seek to exploit, oppress and abuse them.  Or, at a pinch, exterminate them.  That is Syria. That is just one very typical part, really, of the Dar al Islam. – CM

‘Among the dead are 6086 children and 4079 women.

‘While the blame for most of those deaths can be laid at the feet of Assad and his henchmen, the opposition forces can hardly be described as freedom fighters.

‘From this distance it is easy to assume an enemy of Assad is a friend of civilisation.

‘But Assad’s splintered enemies include barbarians who are cutting the hearts from fallen soldiers – and eating them. They have even encouraged children to take part in decapitating enemies, and place the videos on Youtube, presumably in some warped demonstration of modernity.

At this point, Mr Howe could also have mentioned the fact that many of these ‘rebels’ engage in continual and vicious attacks upon defenceless Christian civilians: kidnapping and murdering unarmed Christian clergymen; kidnapping and raping and murdering minor girls; burning and smashing churches, breaking crosses. Most recently the ‘rebels’ attacked and pillaged the ancient and Heritage-listed Christian village of Maaloula, whose inhabitants speak Syriac Aramaic.  According to Barnabas Fund, the ‘rebels’ captured the town and told Christians, “either you convert to Islam or you will be beheaded”.  At least seven Christians were killed, and around 15 kidnapped.  The Islamists entered every Christian home and broke Christian symbols; churches were attacked and crosses on buildings destroyed.” (From the Barnbas Fund bimonthly prayer letter, Nov/Dec 2013). – CM

‘That Australians – if I can use that term loosely – might be among these insurgents should send a shiver down our spines.

‘Late last year Broadmeadows bricklayer Yusuf Toprakkaya, 30 (that is: “a Muslim who had lived in Broadmeadows, bricklayer Yusuf Toprakkaya” - CM) was killed fighting for the rebels.  He had changed his name to Abdul al-Walid al-Australi, similar to our first suicide bomber, Abu Asma al Australia, a nasty piece of work from Brisbane, who drove a truck and 12 tonnes of explosives at an airport checkpoint in eastern Syria, killing 35.

Well, at least those two murder-minded pious Mohammedans won’t be returning to Australia to plot murder and mayhem against Australian infidels…I could find it in my heart to wish that all 200 of those estimated to be still busy a-waging jihad in Syria may meet similar sticky ends.  It would save a lot of trouble and expense. – CM

‘These two men and the three other “Australians” who have died with them (oh – so there are three more who won’t be coming back? – excellent news. – CM) were criminals. As are the other 200 still fighting in Syria.

Not just criminals. Even traitors isn’t quite the right word. The word that’s needed, Mr Howe, is this: Fifth Columnists. Soldiers of ‘allah’, agents of the Ummah, or Mohammedan Mob, the de facto Empire of Islam, which has been incessantly waging war, one way or another, upon every single one of its non-Muslim neighbours, for 1400 years, with the declared aim of achieving Total World Domination.  – CM

‘Then Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus spelled that out at the time, their offences including breaking the Foreign Incursions Act, the Criminal Code Act (by assisting a proscribed terrorist group), and the arms sanctions imposed by us on Syria. They face serious charges when and if they return “home”.

‘But we should go a step further.

‘It is a privilege to be issued an Australian passport, although I have no quibble with Australians holding passports for another country.  I do so myself.

‘But “Australians” who use their second passport as a ticket to go to war in another country – like the Serbian “Aussies” who went to Kosovo in the late 1990s to kill Albanians (a poor example, in hindsight, Mr Howe: you need to read up about the deep history of the Balkan region from the middle ages onward – the routine horrors inflicted on non-Muslim populations by invading and occupying Muslim rulers before the yoke of dhimmitude was broken and the Muslim rulers driven out in the 19th century – and realize that the Balkan war was, at bottom, about Islam vs non-Islam, and that Serb brutality in response to resurgent Muslim aggression from Bosniak and Albanian Muslims was driven at least in part  by  sheer terror of being plunged back into the bottomless pit of dhimmitude – CM)- should have their Australian citizenship revoked.

Even respected criminal lawyer, Rob Stary, who has represented terror suspects and is known for his generous estimate of some fellows you’d rather not live near, believes some offenders should forfeit their citizenship.

Like I have said before, commonsense and the instinct of self-preservation are beginning to kick in, in some surprising quarters, down under.  Mugged by reality, I think it’s called. – CM

‘He sees Benbrika as an example, and believes we should be able to revoke such criminals’ citizenship.

Hear! Hear! YES!!!  We should be able to evict dangerous and deadly Fifth Columnists, the moment we detect their presence. – CM

“I wouldn’t have a blanket provision that once you are an Australian citizen, you are immune to deportation or revocation of citizenship”, Stary said.

‘It’s one thing to “turn back the boats” of desperate asylum seekers (or those who, though overwhelmingly fit, young Mohammedan males of military age, claim to be asylum seekers – CM), as the Liberal Government vowed to do in opposition; but what about those who have already entered: the now Australian (sic: ‘Australian’ only in the sense of having glibly and probably with ‘mental reservation’ sworn their oath of citizenship and gained their piece of paper – CM) Muslims who want to conduct Islam’s centuries-long civil war between Shia and Sunni wheresoever it erupts?

Or prosecute – as we see in the assault upon the Christian villagers of Maaloula, by Syrian Muslim ‘rebels’ –  Islam’s centuries long war against Christians? – CM

‘The 200 Australians fighting in Syria have mostly been associating with groups that are proxies for Al-Qaeda.

‘Brainwashed and radicalised (that is: deeeply devoted to Islam pur et dur, and busy waging Jihad fi sabil allah, just as the Quran instructs them to do; they are nothing but thoroughly-orthodox Muslims, full of that old-time religion – CM) they are the last “Australians” we need.

Exactly. – CM

‘We shouldn’t worry that they have Australian wives, or Australian children.

‘Australian’ children who – unless they take their lives in their hands, and apostasise, emulating the likes of brave little Rifqa Bary or Hannah Shah, or Ayaan Hirsi Ali – may well grow up full of a thoroughly and classically-Islamic hatred and contempt for all Australian non-Muslims and a deep will to do harm to said Infidels, harm of the sort we saw at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, or at Maaloula in Syria, or in the courtyard of All Saints’ Anglican Church, Peshawar, Pakistan, or in the schoolyard of the Jewish school in Toulouse after Mohammed Merah gunned down four people – a rabbi, two little boys, and a little girl. – CM

‘We should worry about ourselves.

‘Their Australian passports should be cancelled.’

Yes.   Are you listening, Mr Morrison?  Mr Abbott.  Just. do. it.  – CM
