Sharia law in Australia

Rita Panahi

Do we have a parallel legal system operating in Australia that is incompatible with our cherished values of fairness and equality?

From today’s Australian:

Muslim communities in Australia have been quietly practising sharia law in negotiating divorces, disadvantaging women in custody and property arrangements.

The Muslim communities then have been turning to the Family Court to authorise the heavily weighted “agreements’’, which often provide “guardianship” of school-aged children to men and incorporate the return of any marriage dowry as well as other financial compensation from the women.

The “guardianship” principle under sharia law means the parent can make all the significant decisions about a child, irrespective of who has custody.

The Australian has learned that Muslim women agree to the sharia agreements so that they can then initiate a religious ­divorce before Islamic imams, and avoid being stuck in a restrictive “limping marriage’’.

An issue of increasing ­concern is where a Muslim man refuses to give his wife a religious divorce, even though the couple may be civilly divorced, and she is unable to remarry or travel to many Islamic countries and can be ostracised in her community.

The husband is not penalised however, as he can take up to four wives without penalty under Islamic law.

But even women awarded religious and civil divorces can find sharia principles restrict their ­future life decisions.

Self-censorship makes us victims of political jihad

JENNIFER ORIEL / THE AUSTRALIAN

Well-respected ASIO chief Duncan Lewis has advised MPs to use soothing language when publicly discussing Islam, apparently to prevent a backlash. Malcolm Turnbull’s tacit support for the advice is not merely an error of judgment, it is profoundly misconceived. 

During the past week, the government has changed the parameters of the public debate on Islamism in Australia. Along with ASIO, it has reframed the debate to propose the cause of militant Islam is, in part, our response to it.

Lewis wants MPs to use more soothing language when responding to Islam. Targets of his advice include Andrew Hastie, a former Special Air Service captain who defended the free world by fighting Islamists, including the Taliban and Islamic State.

Given Hastie’s experience and education in militant Islam, one might expect the government to solicit and consider his advice alongside that of Lewis. Hastie argues that unless the militantly monotheistic teachings of Islam are reformed, it will fail to develop productive capacity in the pluralistic, open society of Australia.

Hastie’s plain-speaking advice provides great opportunity for Muslims to enter the public sphere in support of reforming Islam to ensure the more peaceable schools of the religion can survive a world besieged by genocidal jihadists. However, the aperture has been closed prematurely by MPs and bureaucrats who appear slow to grasp that jihadism is not an act of lone wolves but a global movement rooted in the religion of fundamentalist Islam.

The contention that Australian MPs should modify their message on Islam to mollify militant Muslims plays right into the hands of the global jihadist movement. Islamic State’s playbook, The Management of Savagery, states that ideally, jihadism should be a military, economic and political strategy. The political purpose of jihadism is to strike terror into the hearts of innocents so as to “place them in a constant state of apprehension and desire for reconciliation”. The moment Australians censor honest debate on Islamism for fear of a violent backlash, we become victims of political jihad.

As yet, there is no indication about what intelligence led ASIO or the Prime Minister to believe that counselling MPs into a measure of self-censorship on Islamism constitutes sound policy on national security. But they are not alone in criticising recent calls to reform Islam so that militant fundamentalism plays no part in its future.

Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs Concetta Fierravanti-Wells recently claimed proposals for a reformation of Islam were simplistic. Instead, she suggested imams were best placed to cultivate moderate Islam, commending the appointment of Shady Alsuleiman to the presidency of the Australian National Imams Council as “an important resetting point”.

The claim is questionable. In a podcast entitled The Path of Knowledge , Alsuleiman appears to praise jihadism conducted in the name of Allah shouting: “If you’re going to struggle or sacrifice or go in the jihad, make sure this is for the sake of Allah! … Don’t you ever think, don’t you ever imagine, that the ones that fight and die in the path of Allah are dead! They are with Allah, alive … They are so happy with what Allah has granted them and given them.”

Such preaching is neither complex nor moderate. It is consistent with strains of Islamist ideology where jihadism is praised as a path to paradise.

The Weekend Australian has revealed that some members and associates of the Australian National Imams Council hold militant Islamist views. The problem is not limited to Australia. Last week, the British government published extraordinary findings on how Islamist organisation the Muslim Brotherhood has influenced the development of Muslim community groups in the UK. It found that the Brotherhood and associates secretly wielded significant influence in the establishment of “public facing and apparently national organisations in the UK to promote their views”. By doing so, they obtained access to government.

For decades, Western governments have sought to reconcile liberal democracy to Islamism, often by soliciting the advice of individuals and groups claiming to represent moderate Islamic communities. For some reason, Western politicians are prone to profound naivety about the legitimacy of such representatives, as though the three words “Muslim community leader” constitute a self-evident truth. But the leaders are not democratically elected and frequently represent Sunni Islam to the exclusion of Muslims from other denominations.

The problem of Islamism cannot be resolved by urging MPs to censor the truth about it or soliciting advice from individuals and organisations who justify jihadist activity in its military, economic or political forms.

Australia needs plain- speaking politicians willing to risk censure by telling the truth about political Islam not as they are told to tell it but as it is.

Barack Obama is not seeking “legacy”

To the many gullible souls out there who truly think that Barack Obama is “legacy building” in his all-out assault on America, I implore you to bow out of the conversation because you are not seeing clearly.

The term legacy carries positive connotations of something bequeath that is to the receiver’s benefit. Everything that Barack Obama does is calculated to destroy America, which he despises. This man no more cares about legacy than he fears being properly prosecuted by the white political leaders whose responsibility it is to remove him from office.

I focus on white leaders, because whites are still in the majority and they fill the majority of political offices. If the majority of political operatives were of some other ethnicity, I would lodge my complaint against that group. Ethnicity is an issue only because Obama is half-black and he uses that fact to intimidate guilt-conflicted white people. Otherwise, he would have been impeached and likely in prison for treason by now.

Grand Mufti railed against West, homo’s and women before moving to Australia

His coreligionists try to sell us this Koranimal as “a good man” and a “moderate”.
He won’t speak English, he is mates with Hizb ut-Tahrir, he thinks all non-believers are “filthy creatures”, especially gays, he thinks Australian women deserve to be raped because of how they dress, he wants Israel to “disappear”, and he wants sharia law to operate in parallel with Australian law.

Grand Mufti railed against the West, gays and women before moving to Australia

  • Grand Mufti said Western values were being imposed on the Third World 
  • ‘The West does not bring to us any good, all they bring are their diseases’
  • He described homosexuality and lesbianism as ‘sexual perversion’ 
  • Blamed low fertility rates in the West on ‘loose extramarital sexual conduct’ 
  • Remarks were in a translated essay about a population conference

Australia’s Grand Mufti Ibrahim Abu Mohamed railed against the ‘corrupt values’ of the West before he moved to Australia to become a religious authority, Daily Mail Australia can reveal.

In an essay published by Dr Mohamed when he lived in Abu Dhabi in 1995, the future leader complained that Western values were being imposed on the third world.

‘The West does not bring to us any good, all they bring are their diseases, their designs and their shortcomings,’ he wrote according to the official translated English edition.

‘They insist to impose on us their corrupt values, and their philosophy and mannerism, the very things which brought disease, fear, crime and stress to them, the very things which severed ties and broke relationships.’

In the paper, a scathing criticism of a United Nations population conference in Cairo, Dr Mohamed said the West’s Fitra – their innate nature or conscience – had ‘degenerated’.

Las Vegas Muslims Fear ‘Backlash’ From Yesterday’s Vehicle Jihad

Female Killer In Las Vegas Shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ As She Ran Over 40 Innocent People Last Night

…SHERIFF ‘NOT COMFORTABLE DISCLOSING’ WHAT RAMPAGE DRIVER TOLD HIM

48357431.cached-700x438
Authorities identified Portland woman Lakeisha Holloway as the suspect in the late-night vehicular rampage on the Las Vegas strip that killed one woman and injured dozens.

According to one eye witness, “As this unfolded, the only thing I recall as this happened is the insane sound of her car accelerating and the voice from the car was screaming “Allah Akbar!” I’ve heard the sound enough times on the news that I was waiting for a bomb to blow up or guns to start firing. ”

Now The End Begins Reports:

This was an act of Islamic Terrorism, perpetrated by an Islamic woman driving a car with a three year old child inside, who INTENTIONALLY rode onto the sidewalk to strike innocent people. Police, however, have been instructed by their superiors to NOT use the word “terrorism” in relation to this incident, because Las Vegas does not want tourists to be frightened away from the city.

A woman in a car with its windows down screamed “Allahu Akbar” as she ran up onto the sidewalk and ran-over upwards of 40 people in Las Vegas last night

According to one eye witness  “As we were walking across the street, this car comes flying through the red light. She ran up on the sidewalk and smashed into a group of people walking accross the street and into the group of people at the corner. She did not slow down and appeared to accelerate as she hit the sidewalk.”

According to that witness. there is a huge row of plants and bushes separating the sidewalk and the strip, but the woman driver ran through both, at a speed he guessed to be 40-45 miles per hour. “People were flying off the front of her car and people were smashing into other people as she plowed through the crowd.”
