Abbott comes out making some sense:
“….there is this notion that Islamophobia is almost as big a problem as Islamist terrorism, well Islamophobia hasn’t killed anyone.”
“Islamist terrorism has now killed tens of thousands of people that’s why it’s absolutely critical that there’s the strongest possible response at every level.”
MORE DENIALISM AND BLAME-SHIFTING
Terrorists: “This is for Allah.”
CNN: “We don’t know their motives.”
ABC TV 7pm bulletin last night: no mention of the terrorists being heard to say “This is for Allah”, despite that having been reported on other outlets at least six hours earlier.
Today on the ABC, presenter Jon Faine seeks out a Muslim academic who’ll blame white racists.
Naturally he does not challenge the deadly victim narrative of Shakira Hussein, researcher with the National Centre for Excellence in Islamic Studies, University of Melbourne:
“The Left wants us to believe that terrorism is the result of unemployment. Since when did humans blow themselves up for not having a job?”–Adelaide Shia imam Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi
Imam Mal Turncoat:
….on Monday, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said latest terror attacks were evidence of a “blasphemous corruption” of Islam.
“In London, in Manchester, in Kabul, in Jakarta and Baghdad … This is the work of cowardly craitsed criminals. Now, this is a corruption, a disease, within Islam. It is a global phenomena and it has to be dealt with globally,” he said.
Last not least:
While ASIO head Duncan Lewis said terrorism in Australia was very frequently inspired by an extreme version of Sunni Islam, one of the 12 terror plots disrupted in Australia was linked to right-wing extremism.
We would love to know more about that one. I smell a rat.
