Australia to ban books advocating terrorism

* Will that include the Koran and the teaching of jihad (inner struggle) against unbelievers?

SYDNEY (AFP) –

The Australian government plans to outlaw books that advocate terrorism in a move that publishers say raises serious concerns abut free speech.

Federal Attorney-General Philip Ruddock announced late Friday that his state counterparts had agreed to consider legislative changes banning publications that advocate terrorism.

He said the planned changes were part of a “zero tolerance” approach to terrorism from Canberra, a strong supporter of the US-led military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Books, games, videos, anything that is seen to be advocating a terrorist act would be refused classification, therefore could not be marketed,” Ruddock told public radio.

He said that under existing laws, a publication can only be banned if it is deemed to directly “promote, incite or instruct” readers to engage in terrorist acts.

The proposed new laws ban books that simply advocate terrorism, meaning anything that censors feel glorifies terrorism can be outlawed.

While the distinction may appear subtle, the Australian Publishers Association said it had major implications for free speech in Australia.

“The difficulty is that once you start legislating thew ability of a government to ban books or ban all types of publishing, then you have a problem that it could be the thin edge of the wedge,” association spokeswoman Maree McCaskill told ABC radio.

“We’ve already seen a number of publications taken out of libraries and taken off shelves that have been published and been around for some time, and now the government has removed those.

I have a real concern that this is about freedom of speech. It is about censorship and once you start allowing governments to censor as they feel fit, then you give them a very wide opportunity to start being the arbiter of all sorts of things that should be banned or removed from shelves.”

State attorney’s-general will report back to Canberra on the feasibility of the proposed laws by July.

Patti Smith Writes Song for Ex-Guantanamo Detainee Kurnaz

From Spiegel Online

0102084480400.jpg
Punk legend Patti Smith is (a clueless turd) famous for her uncompromising political stances. Now she has written a song about Murat Kurnaz, the German resident who was held in Guantanamo for over four years.

“Take my hand, come undercover, they can’t hurt you now,” sang Patti Smith in her 1978 hit “Because the Night.” The lyrics could certainly apply to the German-born Turkish citizen Murat Kurnaz, who is now back in Bremen after over four years in the United States detention camp at Guantanamo Bay.
Now the legendary singer-songwriter has composed a song about Kurnaz and his ordeal. The Chicago-born performer told German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel Thursday that she has every intention of releasing the song, titled “Without Chains,” because of her horror at the 25-year-old’s detention and treatment.

“I don’t know why he was arrested and imprisoned but I have written this song for him as an emotional reaction to the whole episode,” Smith told the newspaper.

“When I look at this young man … I ask myself how I would react if my son had gone off travelling somewhere and was imprisoned by some government for five years just because they entertained some suspicions about him?”

Kurnaz was arrested in Pakistan just weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and handed over to the US authorities. He eventually landed in Guantanamo Bay where he says he was tortured until his release without charges in August 2006.

* Right. She admits she doesn’t know shit but she makes a song about it because she has an emotional reaction coming on…

*
In October 2002, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who was then chief of staff to former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, led a committee of German secret service officals which voted against allowing Kurnaz to return to Germany.
Last month, Steinmeier told a parliamentary committee that he blocked Kurnaz’s return in light of the country’s security concerns after the 9/11 attacks. He said Kurnaz, who now lives in the northern German city of Bremen, was categorised as a possible radical Islamist sleeper and security risk.

Smith’s new album “Twelve,” which will be released later this month, contains her covers of songs by artists including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young. Smith, who has long been known for her outspoken political views and her criticisms of the Bush administration, was inducted earlier this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Religious Freedom Treatened at UN

Freedom is freedom. Thats not what Muslims want.

freedom-go-to-hell.jpg

Even some of our leaders are clueless about freedom like this one here:

ISLAMABAD: Former US president Bill Clinton on Friday condemned the publication of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) caricatures by European newspapers and urged countries concerned to convict the publishers.

*

ARLINGTON, VA (ANS) — On Friday, the United Nations passed a seemingly innocuous resolution combating the “defamation of religions.” Further investigation reveals that this motion has erroneously equated legitimate discussion of religious beliefs with the incitement of religious intolerance. Under this resolution, when an individual’s religious sensitivities are offended – no matter the intent or consequences of the opinions expressed – the state must protect the religion from being defamed, or blasphemed.


* Ed sez: Freedom to practice your religion is first and foremost freedom from religion

*

Lying at the heart of this resolution is an attempt by the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) to impose universal anti-blasphemy laws – an offence punishable by death in many countries – thereby stifling open discussion of religious beliefs.

This is a troubling development, especially since countries across the globe are increasingly using anti-blasphemy laws to punish religious minorities for questioning the beliefs of the majority religion. Such laws are no longer confined to Islamic countries; they are now being called for in democratic societies. Individuals who came to the West to escape persecution are once again in danger.

Attending the UN Human Rights Council was Pastor Daniel Scott; the first person tried under the blasphemy laws in Pakistan. Astonishingly, he fled to Australia twenty years ago only to be accused of religious intolerance for a message he gave on the differences between Christianity and Islam. By equating the expression of differences of belief with religious intolerance, the sponsors of this resolution reveal their own intolerance of differing viewpoints.

It is surely no coincidence that the key proponents of this resolution are also those countries that have a history of religious intolerance. For instance Pakistan, which sponsored this resolution on behalf of the OIC, has the harshest blasphemy laws in the world and consistently imposes them on religious minorities such as Pastor Scott.

Al Qaeda Calls for Reconquest of Al Andaluz (again)

While Spain is being overrun with militant Muhammedan illegals from Africa, Al Qaeda is active on the propaganda and recruitment front. Land that was once conquered by Islam must remain Islamic at all cost. And since all the world and the riches of the infidels belong to the soldiers of Allah, the jihad continues.
Madrid (dpa) – The emergence of a new al-Qaeda-linked organization in Northern Africa is alarming Spain, which is concerned about Islamists’ calls for the reconquest of the country they regard as a lost part of the Muslim world. “We will not be in peace until we set our foot again in our beloved al-Andalus,” al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb said on claiming responsibility for an attack which killed at least 24 people in Algiers on Wednesday.
Al-Andalus is the Moorish name for Spain, parts of which were ruled by Muslims for about eight centuries until the last Moorish bastion, Granada, succumbed to the Christian Reconquest in 1492.

The terrorists will undoubtedly attempt to extend their offensive from Northern Africa to European soil, anti-terrorism judge Baltasar Garzon warned, cautioning that Spain was at a “very high risk” of suffering an Islamist attack.

The reference to al-Andalus was not the first by al-Qaeda, which has also vowed to put an end to the Spanish “occupation” of the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla on the Moroccan coast….

The Algerian-based al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, formerly known as the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), intends to federate North African Islamist cells under a common umbrella.

Some of the people who could attack Spain may already be in the country, where nearly 80 per cent of prison inmates jailed on charges related to international terrorism have come from Northern Africa over the past five years.

Islamist radicals proselytize at an estimated 10 per cent of Spain’s hundreds of unofficial mosques, which operate in garages, basements and the like.

Spain has become an important base for the recruitment of suicide bombers who are sent to Iraq, according to press reports. Some of the fighters are believed to be trained in new al-Qaeda camps in Sahel countries such as Mali, Niger or Mauritania.

Canberra Jihad: Most Senior Muslim Cleric praises Islamic jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan

From the Herald Sun

* Why bother, Swaiti? All us English speakers know that jihad is just an inner spiritual struggle. That’s what your coreligionists here in the U.S. tell us all the time. And they warn us that only wicked, wretched, frenziedly racist Islamophobes believe jihad has anything to do with warfare! So we know you meant that you hoped Allah granted victory to all the inner spiritual strugglers in “Palestine,” and Chechnya and Kashmir and Afghanistan and Iraq — right? Right?

* No doubt Gavin King  flash-as-a-rat-with-a-gold_thumb2.jpg would call him a ‘dinki di Australian’ and vilify anyone in his fishwrap who disagrees with his befuddlement with the ‘inner struggle jihad’ –

THE most senior Muslim cleric in Canberra has praised Islamic jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mohammed Swaiti yesterday called on God to grant “victory to mujahideen (Muslim holy warriors)” worldwide, The Weekend Australian newspaper reports.

“God grant victory to the mujahideen in his name in all places,” Sheik Swaiti called out twice in Arabic over a microphone at Abu Bakr mosque in Yarralumla in front of about 500 worshippers.

“God grant victory to mujahideen in Palestine, and Chechnya and Kashmir and Afghanistan and Iraq.”

While Sheik Swaiti translated his sermon into English for non-Arabic-speaking members, the imam of Canberra’s only mosque omitted the praise for Islamic jihadists in the English version.

After the sermon the Palestinian-born cleric denied he was referring to Muslim holy fighters, saying jihad referred not only to fighting but also to self-discipline.

“Jihad means no alcohol and no gambling,” Sheik Swaiti told the newspaper.

* Go on Sheik! Paint a pussy on my cheek! Lie and deny, because Mohammed said ‘War Is Deceit’- but it always works with the useful idiots, why change now?

“If we followed the jihad of the self … and followed the Koran, the whole world will be in peace.”

* Right, Sheik, unfortunately ‘pieces’ and peace is not the same thing, but if you say so: I feel the Islamo-peace a’coming already:

But Islamic Society of ACT president Sabrija Poskovic rejected the cleric’s suggestion he was not referring to fighters in his sermons.

He said the cleric was too radical and preached the wrong Islamic messages.

* No, not wrong. He is a ‘good’ Muslim and he preaches the warfare of the Koran and the Sunnah. He follows Mohammed. And Jihad is ‘the pinnacle of Islam’…

Hate Preacher Fights Court Battle to stay in Britain

From the Evening Standard, with thanks to Jihad Watch
Courtroom Jihad from Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal. This case should be thrown out of court immediately. The idea of a man who “urged followers to kill Jews, Hindus and Americans” bringing a human rights case ought to be shown up for the absurdity that it is, and Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal deported immediately to Iran or another such place where such preaching is not only tolerated, but invited by government officials, who indulge in such rhetoric themselves.

After the 7/7 bomb attacks Tony Blair promised to kick out 500 Muhammedan hate preachers, but not ONE of them got a shoe in the ass to this very day.

Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal urged followers to kill Jews, Hindus and Americans

A hate preacher blamed for indoctrinating one of the July 7 bombers is using human rights law to fight deportation from Britain, it emerged today.


Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal – a Jamaican-born Muslim convert who urged followers to kill Jews, Hindus and Americans – is due to be freed from prison within weeks after serving two thirds of a seven-year sentence for inciting murder.

The Home Office has begun legal moves to deport the fanatic, who Ministers say is a continuing threat to national security.

Its official report of the July 7 attacks described El Faisal as a “strong influence” on Jermaine Lindsay, who detonated the Russell Square tube bomb that killed 26 people.

But El Faisal, a twice-married father of four, has lodged an appeal on the grounds that deportation would be a breach of his human right to a family life.

He has already lost one hearing, but is now dragging the case to the High Court in the latest setback to Tony Blair’s promise to boot out preachers of hate.

Migrants or Invaders? African Migrants Trying to Reach Europe Attack Spanish Patrol Boat

* Mauretania is a desolate Muhammedan wasteland where slavery is rampant. Bringing their culture to you:

SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Canary Islands —

from FOX News

African migrants trying to reach Spain by boat hurled Molotov cocktails at a patrol vessel that tried to stop them — the first known attack in the drama of Africans risking their lives for a toehold in Europe.
The wooden boat was carrying 57 people, including two children, when a Spanish patrol boat intercepted it April 4 off the coast of Mauritania, police in the islands said Tuesday. Spanish vessels are stationed in Mauritania as part of a European drive to keep Africans from setting out on dangerous journeys to the Canary Islands.

When the patrol boat got close, some of those aboard the smaller vessel threw Molotov cocktails and other projectiles at the Spanish boat. No one was injured.

The Spanish Civil Guard police then dropped a Zodiac inflatable raft into the water and used it to try again to get close to the Africans and calm them down, but people on the boat tried to slash the raft with sharp objects, police said.

Authorities in the Canary Islands say this is the first time a patrol boat trying to detain people on the high seas came under attack in the decade since the Canary Islands became a destination for Africans trying to escape poverty and reach Europe’s southern gateway.

Rather than open fire to stop the boat, the Spaniards gave up and let it continue on its route to the Canary Islands. It arrived Sunday on the southeast coast of the island of Gran Canaria and everybody on board was detained.

A Spanish Civil Guard officer who witnessed the attack was flown in from Mauritania to identify the assailants.

Normally, Africans who manage to reach the Canary Islands in such small overcrowded boats are kept in a holding camp for 40 days and eventually set free, but without residency papers or work permits, if the Spanish authorities cannot identify them.

This time Mauritania has agreed to take back the alleged assailants — their precise number is not known — right away for trial because the attack occurred in Mauritanian waters. The rest of the people on the boat will be allowed to stay in Spain.

‘We Will Conquer Your Country with the Bellies of our Women… ‘

* Illegal immigration, rape-epidemics and riots on our streets and beaches are only the beginning: Houari Boumédienne, Algeria’s undisputed ruler until his death in 1978, said it clearly in a 1974 UN speech:

“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends.

Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”

Cairo: ‘Being Naked During Sex Annuls Marriage’

Its a ‘controversial’ fatwa of course, but it comes from a former dean of Al Azahr university, this great beacon of Muhammedan science in the Middle East:

Cairo – An Egyptian cleric’s controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.

* Al-Azhar University (the highest center of Sunni Islamic learning in the world) has issued a fatwa declaring that if a husband and wife are completely naked during sex, the marriage is annulled.

According to the religious edict issued by Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former dean of Al-Azhar University’s faculty of Sharia (or Islamic law), “being completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage”.

Is it okay like this, mufti?

The religious decree sparked a hot debate on the private satellite network Dream’s popular religious talk show and on the front page of Sunday’s Al-Masri Al-Yom, Egypt’s leading independent daily newspaper.

Suad Saleh, who heads the women’s department of Al-Azhar’s Islamic studies faculty, pleaded for “anything that can bring spouses closer to each other” and rejected the claim that nudity during intercourse could invalidate a union.

During the live televised debate, Islamic scholar Abdel Muti dismissed the fatwa: “Nothing is prohibited during marital sex, except of course sodomy.”

For his part, Al-Azhar’s fatwa committee chairman Abdullah Megawar argued that married couples could see each other naked but should not look at each other’s genitalia and suggested they cover up with a blanket during sex.

Pali Minister Seeks $1.3 Billion in Jiziyah (Aid for the Jihad, of course)

While Norway pays the Jiziyah ‘with willing submission’- according to Koranic teachings-, the rest of the EU is rather recalcitrant and won’t submit, not yet. What does it take to whack them into submission?

Could it be another terror attack or two by ‘disenchanted youth’s?’

* They would never tell you that this is a self-inflicted ‘crisis’- and that generations of fanatical zombies raised on terror and hatred will never be anything but terrorists, parasites and genocidal maniacs….

By Paul Taylor Reuters

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Palestinian Finance Minister Salam Fayyad told the European Union on Wednesday a new national unity government needed more than $1.3 billion in international aid this year to avert a “devastating” humanitarian crisis.

He won a cautious endorsement from EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner, who promised technical assistance to enable his ministry to receive aid once the Palestinian Authority meets key political conditions.

“We are looking for external support to bridge a gap of nearly 1 billion euros ($1.34 billion) for 2007,” Fayyad told a joint news conference, stressing his government’s commitment to respect all peace accords with Israel.

Asked what would happen if aid was not forthcoming, he said: “The consequences are far too grave, quite frankly.”

Fayyad, a respected independent technocrat, was on the first visit to Brussels by a member of the new government after the EU boycotted the former Hamas-led administration due to the Islamic movement’s refusal to recognize Israel or renounce violence.

Ferrero-Waldner praised his personal commitment to peace but made clear the EU’s engagement would be selective, gradual and dependent on the government’s words and actions.

“I’ve made very clear that possible financial engagement would not mean resuming direct financial assistance overnight,” she said, pledging that a temporary aid system created to bypass the Hamas-led government would remain for as long as necessary.

The Finance Ministry will take time to meet international standards for absorbing aid, and “the EU will also need time to come to a decision then on this political issue,” she said.

SELECTIVE ENGAGEMENT

The EU, the Palestinians’ biggest donor, increased aid from 500 million to 700 million euros last year, paying subsistence allowances to 150,000 families and keeping essential services going through the Temporary International Mechanism.

Fayyad told Reuters he had inherited public finances in disrepair and the EU should keep that lifeline going and develop it until his ministry was able to receive foreign transfers, which would require the lifting of U.S. banking restrictions.

Asked how long it would take before the ministry was ready to receive direct aid, he said: “Insofar as setting up a system or re-establishing a central treasury is concerned, I think we are there now, but for the restrictions which make it not possible for us to receive international assistance.”

* Peaceful Pali resident on an evening stroll in a quiet little street in Gaza

The Quartet of Middle East peace brokers — the United States, Russia, the United Nations and the European Union — suspended direct aid to the Palestinian Authority after Hamas formed a government last year.

While Fayyad presented the Palestinian Authority as a single team committed to the same platform, Ferrero-Waldner made clear the EU would work with non-Hamas members such Foreign Minister Ziad Abu Amr and Information Minister Mustafa Barghouthi.

Fayyad said the Palestinian Authority was operating on a quarter of the funds it needs to provide essential services.

Even once a properly functioning finance ministry was restored, economic recovery would require the lifting of Israeli restrictions on trade, movement and access, tightened as part of a security crackdown on the Hamas government, he said.

He met the EU’s Middle East peace envoy, Marc Otte, and European Parliament leaders and was to travel on to Norway, which brokered a landmark 1993 Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

The parliamentary leaders said they respected Fayyad’s integrity and told him it was vital the Palestinians build transparent financial management and avoid past errors.

“We want to be able to see, prove, check, where the money went. It’s a special problem of the Palestinian Authority after the recent years, but it’s also a general problem of the aid of the European Union,” budget committee chairman Herbert Boesch told Reuters.

Genocide of Jews remains Hamas Goal

They love the bloodshed. They love death. They love killing Jews. No matter what kind of happy face the UN tries to put on it.

Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan delivered a hate-filled sermon calling for the “liberation of Palestine” through terrorism rather than through inter-Arab and international conferences.

Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center at Israel Intelligence’ Heritage & Commemoration Center (IICC)

Charles has the video and the transcript: 

Please note: Dr. Ismail Radwan is simply quoting the hadith, the record of the sayings and deeds of Mohammed.

The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: “Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!”

We must remind our Arab and Muslim nation, its leaders and people, its scholars and students, remind them that Palestine and the Al Aqsa mosque will not be liberated through summits nor by international resolutions, but it will be liberated through the rifle. It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since this occupation knows no language but the language of force… O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere… Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!
