NOW CHOOSE YOUR ENEMY
…because your enemy has already chosen you
Abbott’s eyes tell the story. It’s bad, it’s evil, it’s vile and abhorrent … and it’s Islam. World leaders are slowly coming to realise what for so long they have desperately tried to deny. No longer can they refuse to accept the obvious. Islam feeds off weakness and it has grown stronger and bolder on our reluctance to face its pixelised atrocities.
More from Prime MinisterÂ Tony Abbott
The PM has no business pandering to Mohammedan head choppers orÂ or seeking their approval for anything.
Sydney Muslim community leader Dr Jamal Rifi hopes Australians don’t judge all Muslims over the execution of US journalist James Foley by Islamic State jihadists.Â Â The swine been practicing and glorifying beheadings for 1400 years!
Graphic: Muslims “Systematically Beheading Children” In “Christian Genocide”
“Christianity in Mosul is dead, and a Christian holocaust is in our midst.” Arabo said that a “Christian genocide” is occurring and “children are being beheaded, mothers are being raped and killed, and fathers are being hung.”
Ask any hardworking Greek or Italian immigrant and they will tell you it is true. It’s a place where the opportunity is given to live a good life. A peaceful life. Australia – the country that opened its arms to the downtrodden peoples of war ravaged Europe. Australia – the land that opened its arms to the Vietnamese. But then, we went too far with our open-arms policy. Renny Carter/ COMMENTS
Andrew Bolt’s Relapse Into Dhimmitude
SEVERAL Muslims rang our 2GB show this week. They were young and angry â€” but not with me.
No, Ali, Muhammad and Sabrina were angry with their so-called “leaders” who have betrayed them.
This week Prime Minister Tony Abbott asked to meet Muslim leaders in both Sydney and Melbourne to discuss his anti-terrorism proposals. Even an idiot would understand Muslim Australians have much to fear from a jihadist terrorism on Australian soil. There would be the sorrow for the deaths, of course. But the backlash against the many decent Muslims here could be ugly
So the key concern for Muslim “leaders” should be, first, to do as much as possible to stop jihadists and, second, to be seen doing so.–Â (Read full article here.)
More from Bolt:
So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday
But Simon Turnill wonders whether Barack Obama really understands Islam better than doesÂ the “caliph” of the Islamic State:
A professor, teacher, former educator, recognized preacher, and a graduate of the Islamic University in Baghdad, where he finished his academic studies (BA, MA and PhD). He is known as a preacher and a person of knowledge in Islamic culture, Shariah knowledge, and jurisprudence, and possessing vast knowledge of history and lineage…
He is a man from a religious family. His brothers and uncles include preachers and teachers in Arabic, eloquence and logic.Â
When it comes to denialism,Â GuardianÂ assistant editorÂ Michael White wins the prize:
One widely used [image this month] … was a video screengrab of a bearded young man, Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary from west London. Kitted out in Kevin the Teenage Jihadi uniform, he was boasting about his adventures in Syria while holding a severed head (“Chillin’ with my homie, or what’s left of him”) in one hand…
Yet in that odd way [these images] are as reassuring as they are menacing… But the Kevins, the Barys and their tweets remain rooted in our own world, Pop Idol, the football season, even the death of Robin Williams, and their self-evident silliness shines through the words they glibly utter as clearly as it does through those beards, as obligatory a fashion statement as tattoos or nose-piercing in some quarters. Last year Kevin was into rapping or medical studies, this year jihad, next year back to studying perhaps – if he survives the Nutella-free side of jihad and escapes the attention of the British police at Heathrow or Manchester airport….
And [Islamic State] Baghdadi and his movement are routinely condemned as “evil, corrupt, self-centred and un-Islamic” by leading British Muslims, though not loudly enough to generate media headlines very often….
But for all their threats to stick one on the White House or reopen Turkey’s AtatÃ¼rk dam (shutting the Euphrates’ water off to both Syria and Iraq lately) by conquering Istanbul, the viewer can’t help but notice how utterly in thrall the Kevins are to so-called “western” technology and behaviour, and how utterly dependant on it they are…
So, let’s tackle Islamic State and Kevin the Canon Fodder; better still let’s encourage well-armed state actors in the region to sort out a fundamentalist problem it helped to create from Saudi and football-loving Qatar. But let’s not over-react, let’s not do some of the brutally counterproductive and brutal things we’ve done in the past. We want the lucky Kevins to survive, to come home for clean underwear, chastened not angry, and keen to go to college.
Will we still be talking about Isis in a year? I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
The Islamic State may be destroyed next year. But we will indeed by talking about some Kevin still, and for many years yet. British Muslims now hacking off heads of American, Iraqi and Syrian blasphemers will not return to Britain merely “chastened not angry”, and the wide-eyed malcontents admiring their work on social media won’t be dreaming of college. Liking Robin Williams does not mean you can’t also kill. Evil is actually banal.
