“Tony Abbott opens his mouth and incites people; it’s not the imams that are radicalising young people…”
The backroom leader of the peak national body for Muslims says the federal government should “grow a spine” and it has “no moral right” to lecture the community on terrorist threats.
Muslims NSW president Amjad Mehboob, who was also chief executive of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils for 35 years and its current spokesman, said the government could never win its fight if it did not stand up for Muslims.
“What the young people see is a lot of empty Muslim rhetoric, they don’t see anything about the issues that concern them,” he said.
“So when they see ISIL [Islamic State], they see they are doing something about their problems.”
Mr Mehboob invoked the Palestinian cause as an example of the government’s “empty rhetoric”.
“Tony Abbott opens his mouth and he incites people; it’s not the imams that are radicalising young people,” he said.—Read the whole thing below the fold….
A national conversation was needed about citizenship and changes to laws to keep Australians safe from growing threat of homegrown terrorism, Julie Bishop said today.
The Foreign Minister also denied there had been a breakdown in trust between her and Prime Minister Tony Abbott, following reports cabinet was ambushed by a proposal to strip Australians suspected of terror offences of their sole citizenship.

Turnbull cloak and dagger
As a member of the Abbott cabinet, Malcolm Turnbull is obliged to keep any criticisms of the government’s performance to himself. Unless, of course, it’s in the confidentiality of the cabinet room itself.
“This is an extraordinary proposition,” the Communications Minister said to the cabinet meeting on Monday night, according to people present in the room.
The Immigration Minister, Peter Dutton, was proposing that he should have the power, at his own discretion, to strip an …

All Muslims, like all dogs…share the same characteristics:
All Muslims share the same Islam. The establishment is always telling us that there are good, moderate Muslims and extremist, jihadist Muslims and that the two different kinds have nothing in common with each other.
Well, Candice, it isn’t those proverbial “root causes” of poverty, unemployment and the like, the reasons “progressives” like Obama always point to as the impetus.What’s driving them? Isn’t it obvious? It’s the siren call of jihad, which is particularly potent for certain idealistic youths who may be looking to channel their youthful idealism into a “worthy” cause. And, clearly, working for “social justice” and/or to put an end to global “climate change,” causes which are amorphous and non-specific, don’t captivate these youngsters in the way that running off to fight for the Caliphate does.
Simple as that, really.
American Broadcasters of Communism (ABC) had to make this into another crusade against Christians, Conservatives, and declare AZ to be racist across the board.
If they cannot find an incident, they will fabricate one, knowing too many will not bother to hear the truth of a matter. Bottom line: no brawling happened, only a couple of shouting matches.

The organizer of a free-speech rally held outside a Phoenix mosque Friday said he and his family are going into hiding after threats on his life.
Friday’s protest, organized by former Marine Jon Ritzheimer, was held outside the Islamic Community Center, a mosque attended by the two men who were killed by police after they attacked the Prophet Muhammed cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. The protest was peaceful, thanks in part to a heavy police presence, although it attracted a vocal counter-protest.
Ritzheimer told Fox 10 Phoenix that those protesting his event are “mad.”
“They’re mad at us for exercising our First Amendment rights,” he said. “This is further proof that our First Amendment is under attack. This is tyranny right here. This is tyranny at its finest.”
In a surprise visit, French
far-right leader politician Marine Le Pen, who heads the Front National party, has met with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb. (Source thanks to Marie)
During the talks at Al-Azhar’s headquarter’s in Cairo, the Grand Imam of Sunni Islam’s top Islamic authority told Le Pen that Al-Azhar has been seriously concerned by the Front National’s views on Islam.
Le Pen, who has often warned against the ‘radical Islamization’ of France and has urged French authorities to crackdown and ‘eradicate’ fundamentalists, was told by Sheikh el-Tayeb that the Front National must correct its opinions about Islam.
In a statement, Al-Azhar said it questioned the FN’s “hostile opinions towards Islam and Muslims,” and urged the party to review and correct such opinions.
While Le Pen has recently said in an op-ed in the New York Times that “Islamist terrorism is a cancer on Islam, and Muslims themselves must fight it at our side,” Le Pen’s views towards immigration and monitoring of mosques, including her party’s rhetoric after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, have attracted fierce criticism. In an interview with Al-Jazeera, Le Pen also criticized Saudi Arabia and Qatar, stating that France must review its foreign policy and “stop rolling out the red carpet for countries we know to be funding fundamentalism, countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar.”
During the meeting, Le Pen and Sheikh el-Tayeb agreed that action must be taken to tackle “erroneous ideas and concepts about Islam and extremist ideologies” while also confronting “racism that some Muslims in Europe” suffer from.
(The mufti is insolent to suggest Le Pen has “erroneous ideas about Islam”. Muslims in Europe do not suffer from “racism”. Europeans suffer from invasion, Mohammedan crime, insolence and supremacy.)
Meanwhile, Le Pen also agreed that there is a need not to confuse Islam with the violent acts committed in its name by fundamentalists, said a statement by Al-Azhar. Confirming these statements, Le Pen tweeted that there had been “strong agreement” on the fight against extremism and radicalism.
(Either she gets it or she doesn’t. Islam, only Islam, is responsible for terrorism which is commanded in the Quran by Muhammad himself.)
According to Al-Azhar, the talks between Le Pen and the Grand Imam came after Le Pen’s request to discuss matters relating to Islam in Europe.
Le Pen also met with Coptic Pope Tawadros II, tweeting that the talks were “moving” and exemplified her solidarity with the Christians of Egypt and the Middle East.

The Dalai Lama, A Long-Time Apologist For Islam, Can’t Understand Aung San Suu Kyi
And over the past two years, qua Buddhist, and just yesterday, he has presumed to preach to Aung San Suu Kyi about the so-called “Rohingyas” (the Muslim Bengalis who, beginning in the period of British Burma and British India, drifted into Burma) and to “deplore” — how happy the New York Times must have been to report this — what he, and of course all right-thinking people, find to be her strange silence. But her silence is not strange, but admirable. She has said to the Dalai Lama, he complains, that things “are not so simple,” that they are “more complicated” than he thinks.
What everyone is missing is that Aung San Suu Kyi is a very intelligent, strong-willed lady. And she will not be stampeded into what the herd demands of her — that she “denounce the Burmese monks” for their “mistreatment of the Rohingyas.” Her late husband, Dr. Michael Aris, taught at Oxford. He was a friend and colleague of the Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford, Ernst Gombrich’s son Richard. And Richard Gombrich’s son was also a friend of the late David McCutchion, whose field of special study were the temples and art of Bengal. And it was David McCutchion who saw what Muslims had done to Buddhists and Buddhist monuments, temples, stelae, statuary, in Bengal; it was David McCutchion who expressed the wish that Pakistan had never existed.
Aung San Suu Kyi doesn’t need any lessons either from the Dali Lama, or from the editors of The New York Times, about Burma and the “Rohingyas.” She knows something about them. And that distinguishes her from the undifferentiated mass or herd that is supposed to speak for the “international community” (as in “the international community deplores the behavior of the Burmese government toward the Rohingyas.”)
She may ultimately succumb to such pressure but for now, she is standing firm, secure in her superior knowledge. She is, for this withstanding, to be admired and praised and, whenever possible, emulated.
Sydney’s Islamic State butchers Khaled Sharrouf and Mohamed Elomar have been accused of buying, raping and torturing Yazidi slave girls in Syria and teaching their young children how to torture the girls.
One woman has described how Sharrouf’s children threatened to behead them and film their deaths.
“(They) said that they would make a video while cutting off our heads,” the woman, who says she was bought as a slave by Sharrouf told the ABC’s 7.30 Report last night.
“The children were holding knives and told us that they were going to kills us. They were calling us infidels ‘all Yazidis are infidels’, they said, the whole world must convert to Islam.”
The women reported the harsh, violent existence in Raqqa was wearing down Sharrouf’s family who often pleaded with him to take them back to Australia.
“The family were always complaining, saying they can’t live in that place,” one woman said. “They were crying and quarrelling and demanding to return to Australia.
The bleeding hearts want these kids back in Australia, keep them where they are, they are not human and seriously have no future as humans.

AMIRIYAT FALLUJA, Iraq — On one side of a rickety bridge that spans a narrow stretch of the Euphrates River were panicked families on the run from Islamic State forces, hoping to escape Anbar Province and reach safety in Baghdad. On the other side were Iraqi Army officers and Shiite militiamen, under orders to keep the bridge closed because of fears that militants could slip in among the displaced civilians.
“It’s like the other side is Europe and this is Asia,” said Ehab Talib, 27, who was waiting to meet relatives fleeing the fighting in Anbar, the Sunni-dominated region whose capital, Ramadi, recently fell to the Islamic State.
With new waves of civilians fleeing violence in Anbar there are now more internally displaced Iraqis, nearly three million, than there were at the height of the bloody sectarian fighting that followed the American invasion, when millions of Iraqis were able to flee to Syria. That door is closed because of that country’s own civil war. And now doors in Iraq are closing, too, worsening sectarian tensions as the Shiite authorities restrict where fleeing Sunnis can seek safety.
“We are all Iraqis,” said Marwan Abdul, a doctor’s assistant, standing outside his mobile clinic here. “This wouldn’t happen in any other country.”
The violence unleashed by the Sunni militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has hit Sunnis disproportionately. Nearly 85 percent of the Iraqis on the run are Sunnis, and they often find themselves seeking safety in Shiite-dominated areas, including Baghdad, where, as at the bridge here, they are frequently treated as security threats rather than as suffering fellow citizens.
