Our children must be taught our nation is free and fair
AFTER an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in Melbourne on Monday night Victoria’s socialist Premier Daniel Andrews couldn’t explain why a Somalian-born jihadi with a history of violent extremism could possibly be on parole.
Melbourne siege being treated as terrorism
Yacqub Khayre was “compliant” during parole, said Andrews, “including drug tests, attending appointments and observing a curfew.”
Yep, Yacqub Khayre was compliant, right up to the point where he took a prostitute hostage, murdered an innocent hotel clerk, rang Channel Seven to pledge allegiance to ISIS and al-Qaeda, and shot three police officers.
He’s certainly compliant now he’s dead.
That is a happy event, because Khayre’s profile is all too familiar in this age of terror. It may surprise ASIO boss Duncan Lewis, but Khayre, 29, was a refugee turned terrorist, arriving from war-torn Somalia in 1994 with his family.
This is how he repaid Australia’s generosity: with violent burglaries and assaults, armed robberies, and involvement in the terror plot to kill soldiers at Holsworthy barracks.
Can you guess who is delivering the so-called de-radicalisation program to Victoria’s radical Islamists?
The Islamic Council of Victoria.
For over four million dollar of your taxes.
Only in Dan’s Rainbow State.
No Muslim has ever been “deradicalised” by other Muslims. No fox ever guarded the chicken coop.
He was acquitted in 2011 but Justice Betty King described him and his co-accused, who included three other refugees, as “unrepentant radical Muslims”.
“The fact that Australia welcomed all of you, and nurtured you and your families, is something that should cause you all to hang your heads in shame that this was the way you planned to show your thanks,” King said.

But from the moment Khayre set foot on Australian soil as a seven-year-old, he was fed a diet of our nation’s great sinfulness, its racist history, its corrupt culture. From at least the 1990s the leftist lie about Australia’s bigotry and racism has been the dominant narrative.
It is taught by teachers to gullible children, and imbibed like mother’s milk through the media, particularly the ABC. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the critique grew sharper, blaming America and its allies for provoking Islamist terrorism.
Children were told the root cause of jihadi violence was us, not Islam.
This was the line of the ABC’s program BtN, aired in primary schools across Australia.
We know from former Punchbowl teacher, Mrs A, that she banned BtN because she felt it was sympathetic to radical Islam, and caused her Year 5 and 6 students in the predominately Muslim school to cheer on ISIS and spout anti-West sentiments.
“It was putting the thought into their heads that [ISIS] was our fault”.
Indeed, BtN pushed the “root cause” theory of Western imperialism, without mention of Islamist ideology.
Jewish groups have long complained about BtN’s Middle East coverage. Yet when Nationals senator John Williams last month asked the ABC’s director of editorial policies, Alan Sunderland, about Mrs A’s concerns, he was told: “I found that to be a most unfair and not in any way accurate attack on what is a fine program”.
There are none so blind as those who will not see.
The myth of Muslim victimisation has taken hold in Australia as holy writ, and it has turbocharged the process of Islamic radicalisation.
How could a susceptible young Muslim man’s thirst for jihad be tempered by love for country when no one loved Australia except bigots. By the time of the Cronulla riots, bien pensants were describing the Australian flag as racist.
Fake claims of Islamophobia were peddled by leftist media because it proved their point that most Australians were deplorable bigots. By the time of the Lindt siege, NSW police had so bought the line that they distracted themselves with an operation designed to combat anti-Muslim “bias crime” that never eventuated.
Even while Australia was proving its compassion as the world’s most generous refugee resettlement country per capita, our nation’s character was maligned from within.
Cultural defamation was a deliberate tactic to embed the left’s doctrine of multiculturalism. It was not a simple matter of respecting different races, creeds and cultures in one integrated harmonious Australia. Multiculturalism pretended that all cultures were morally equal, so that Australians who tried to defend our culture or, in fact, Western civilisation, were labelled bigots and rednecks.
It was forbidden in polite company to assert that our culture was superior even to barbaric, seventh century cultures, which mutilate the genitalia of small girls, practice slavery and throw homosexuals off buildings.
A blind eye was turned to those inconvenient truths, even as Islamists tried very hard to shove reality down our throats, most recently in London with a blade to the jugular.
No wonder Khayre and their ilk think it’s all our fault that they want to kill us. We told them so from the minute they arrived.
But in the UK, at least, enough is enough.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday broke the multicultural taboo when she declared that Islamist terrorism will only be defeated when everyone understands that “our values — pluralistic, British values — are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate.”
The “whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism — and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities but as one truly United Kingdom.”
The same holds for Australia.
In previous times of crisis governments used to promote the values which unify a nation. Propaganda has a bad name, but imagine how much better for Australia would be an ABC education program pumped into classrooms which didn’t preach self-flagellating leftist dogma but told children how wonderful, free and fair Australia is, and how important it is that we keep it that way.
Islamic Council of Victoria questions whether Brighton attack was terrorism.
Of Course they do.
This is the same islamic Council of Victoria that our esteemed village Wally used to be president of.
ICV get much of the millions the governemt shells out for ‘deradicalisation programs’.
Whatever that means.
This is our tax money being squandered by fools we have elected.
The same fools want to bring more of the problem to these shores.
