Questions for Moderate Muslims

While I am personally in favor of reversing Muhammedan immigration, there is no doubt that there are many Muslims for identification purposes only, some who call themselves Muslims out of filial piety or others who are secular and truly integrate and assimilate in a multicultural society.

To separate friend from foe, perhaps our immigration officials should start asking the right questions.


Here is a test-list from Daniel Pipes, which many Muslims ‘proudly’ proclaimed they ‘failed’ on his blog.

Useful questions might include:


Violence: Do you condone or condemn the Palestinians, Chechens, and Kashmiris who give up their lives to kill enemy civilians? Will you condemn by name as terrorist groups such organizations as Abu Sayyaf, Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya, Groupe Islamique Armée, Hamas, Harakat ul-Mujahidin, Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, and al-Qaida?

Modernity: Should Muslim women have equal rights with men (for example, in inheritance shares or court testimony)? Is jihad, meaning a form of warfare, acceptable in today’s world? Do you accept the validity of other religions? Do Muslims have anything to learn from the West?

Secularism: Should non-Muslims enjoy completely equal civil rights with Muslims? May Muslims convert to other religions? May Muslim women marry non-Muslim men? Do you accept the laws of a majority non-Muslim government and unreservedly pledge allegiance to that government? Should the state impose religious observance, such as banning food service during Ramadan? When Islamic customs conflict with secular laws (e.g., covering the face for drivers’ license pictures), which should give way?

Islamic pluralism: Are Sufis and Shi’ites fully legitimate Muslims? Do you see Muslims who disagree with you as having fallen into unbelief? Is takfir (condemning fellow Muslims with whom one has disagreements as unbelievers) an acceptable practice?
Self-criticism: Do you accept the legitimacy of scholarly inquiry into the origins of Islam? Who was responsible for the 9/11 suicide hijackings?

Defense against militant Islam: Do you accept enhanced security measures to fight militant Islam, even if this means extra scrutiny of yourself (for example, at airline security)? Do you agree that institutions accused of funding terrorism should be shut down, or do you see this a symptom of bias?

Goals in the West: Do you accept that Western countries are majority-Christian and secular or do you seek to transform them into majority-Muslim countries ruled by Islamic law?

It is ideal if these questions are posed publicly – in the media or in front of an audience – thereby reducing the scope for dissimulation.


More questions:


Justification of any Islamic Terrorism, Palestinian or otherwise

Supporting or refusing to condemn Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, Hamas, or other terrorists or terrorist organizations by name

Promoting jihad for Muslims to fight against what they determine is “injustice” or “aggression”

Demands for Sharia law in the West, or denying that Sharia forbids equal rights for women and members of religions other than Islam

Demanding that Australians accommodate the public expression of Islamic laws, customs, and practices that conflict with, or are harmful to Australian laws, customs, and practices

Denying that Muslims were involved in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and other attacks around the world

Refusal to cooperate with or inciting others not to cooperate with authorities or standard security procedures

Branding progressive Muslims or Muslims of different opinions as apostates.

Refusal to interact, converse, or socialize with non-Muslims

Now lets see how many Muslim posters we can attract to participate in this test, which should be compulsory.

Can a Good Muslim Become a Good Australian?

This has previously been posted slightly different,  with ‘American’ instead of Australian. I have changed the text a little bit to make it fit:

Can a good Muslim be a good Australian?

Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)

Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran). Don’t forget the ‘pinnacle of islam’- the jihad against unbelievers and Jooozzz…

Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan. Islam is a global movement for world domination.

Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).

Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the
American Constitution or any other ‘man-made law’- since it is based on Judeo-Christian principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

Spiritually – no. There’s no spirituality in Islam. The promise of 72 virgins and 24 boyz in the afterlife focuses on carnal pleasures.

Jews and Christians believe God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

Therefore after much study and deliberation…perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and good Australians. Call it what you wish…it’s still the truth. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. This war is bigger than most Australians know or understand.

Muhammedan Madness On Display

As a longtime reader and contributor to Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch and Dhimmi Watch I must say that these two websites are amongst the most important in the world today. In order to understand the global jihad the writings of Robert Spencer & Hugh Fitzgerald make these sites the most educational, irrefutable and knowledge-based sites on the web. Credit where credit is due, so of course we have to highly recommend the indefatigable Ali Sina and his FFI (Faith Freedom International) website, and Charles Johnson from Little Green Footballs who exposes the lunacy of the left, their deception, fraud, lies and scandalous corruption on a daily basis.

You can’t reason with unreasonable people, but there are many of us who still don’t understand anything about Islam, who believe its us ‘who are at fault’- who would insist we treat them like misbehaved children rather than assassins and potential terrorists, who wish to force a bizarre and twisted ideology on us.
For these people every little bit helps. The poster here may be just a mental lightweight, a simple idiot. But he is the prototype of the muslim masses who will cut your throat for Allah. If it helps your understanding of what we’re up against then this might be well worth posting:

This is from Jihad Watch today. I thought worthwhile posting it here since it puts Muhammedan insanity on display, from ‘The Problem is not America…or me, an invitation for Dinesh De Souza, here is the post from a soldier of Allah:

As I read some of the comments in this forum, it’s clear that most of you are ignorant to other religions, most notably Islam. So I decided to include some FACTS about Islam.

Islam = Total submission to god
Muslim= One who submits to god
Allah= God (also used by arab speaking christians and jews)
Out of the 25 prohets mentioned in the Quran, the five most important in Islam are: Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad (pbuh).
Muslims, Christians, and Jews pray to the same god.

Islam is not a name, but a description: “Total submission to god”. And if you attack Islam profanely, you are attacking anybody who believes in the one true God, which would also include Christians and Jews.

“Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, the converts; anyone who
1.)believes in God, and
2.)believes in the Hereafter, and
3.)leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.”
Sura [2:62,5:69]

Go out meet a muslims, read the Quran and find out for yourself the truth about real muslims, and not criminals.

‘Go out meet a muslims, read the Quran and find out for yourself the truth about real muslims, and not criminals.’

You did not tell us how to differentiate between a Muslim and the criminal.

Citizenships revoked to Bosnian Jihadists

Al Qaeda Jihadist protesting possible revoking of his citizenship in Sarajevo, December 11, 2006.

With thanks to Serbianna:

January 15, 2007
Bosnia (FT) — Under pressure from western states over fears it may become a European base for Islamic terror cells, Bosnia is revoking citizenship it granted to hundreds of foreign Muslims who came to the country to fight the Serbs and Croats in the wars of the 1990s. Many of the Jihadists have married local Bosnian Muslim women.

Hard to believe that the bureaucrats in the EU  should have woken up. However, those who know about the ‘strong family ties’ and inner workings of Muhammedan jihad families will point out that they will never get rid of them or that they will never go back to where they came from, unless forcibly evicted. So rest assured that this Bosnian hotbed of jihad insurgency will be with us for a long, long time to come.


The announcement that the first batch of passports had been canceled coincided last week with the decision of a Bosnian court to convict four men of planning a bomb attack on an unspecified European target.

“So far we have revoked 330 citizenships,” said Vjekoslav Vukovic, the head of a commission established to review the granting of about 1,500 passports since 1991.

“The majority of them are from African and Asian countries,” Mr Vukovic said of the people whose citizenship had been revoked, adding that some 500 cases were still pending.

Hundreds of Muslim men arrived in Bosnia to fight as mujahideen, or “holy warriors”, during a 1991-1995 war with Serbs and Croats, and many obtained citizenship afterwards by marrying local women or as a reward for their service to the Bosnian Muslims. The worst atrocities against Christians have been committed by these foreign fighters and not one has been indicted by the Hague court.

Bosnia has come under suspicion in recent years as a potential base for terror cells and organisations that raise and launder money for groups linked to al-Qaeda.

Last week, two Bosnians, a Swede and a Turkish man were convicted of travelling to Bosnia to prepare a terrorist attack against a European target, with the intention of forcing western troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. A fifth man was jailed last May after admitting involvement in the same plot.

Six Algerians were arrested in Bosnia in late 2001, on suspicion of planning attacks on the country’s US and British embassies. They have been held in the US-run Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba since early in 2002.


when the Bosnian jihad was in full swing, Bin Laden brought some 20.000 foreign mujaheddin to this former Yugoslav  province. Amongst them was also Mohammed Dawood, aka David Hicks, now inmate in Gitmo.

Many stayed. To revoke citizenship for 330   does nothing to reduce the threat of jihad warfare against the west.

Love Letter to Australia from a Turkish Migrant

With thanks to Gramfan

I just picked this up from the comments section and I think its worthwhile to reprint the whole text including the link right here:,21985,21091961-5006029,00.htmlI

It sure makes good reading and it will warm many hearts. But I’m afraid something is missing. Guess what?

I will comment later. For now I invite your comments:

I’m so proud to be an Aussie
John Ilhan

January 21, 2007 12:00am
Article from: Sunday Herald Sun

JOHN Ilhan writes: IT’S an important time to consider what it really means to be an Australian.

Australia Day is just around the corner, allowing us to express our patriotic feelings with pride.

Australia has given me everything. It has embraced Crazy John’s and allowed it to become a successful company employing hundreds of people. I met an Australian girl from Hawthorn who became my wife and now we are a loving family of six following the recent proud birth of our son.

Of course, nationalism can also be misdirected, as the events of the first day at the Australian Open showed when the destructive side of patriotic jingoism raised its ugly head. No matter what our background, we are Australians.

The loyalty first and foremost to Australia should also be remembered by some religious leaders, including some radical Muslim leaders in Australia, who pretend to speak for the faith, but instead promote intolerance and hatred. These thankfully are in the minority, but they should respect Australian laws and not preach division and fear. If they cannot respect Australian law then they should have their citizenship revoked or not be allowed back in the country if they are living overseas.

My Muslim faith qualifies me to strongly denounce any racist and inflammatory comments made by any Muslim leaders because they perpetuate a stereotype that is unhelpful and dangerous.

I am the proud son of Turkish parents. I missed out on being born in Australia by a few years, but each day I thank my lucky stars that I came to this country. Most people came to this country to build a better life. They should be thankful and grateful to be here. Therefore immigrants must learn the Australian way of life, culture and learn the English language.

For many Australians, the true awakening of our national identity was at Gallipoli. Each year thousands of young Australians travel to the Turkish coast to discover the sacrifices and courage shown by those young Anzacs in World War I.

In recent years there has been a growing appreciation also of the courage and determination shown by the Turkish troops in that battle.

I had relatives who fought in the First World War against the Anzacs, yet today, if there was another world war, I would fight for Australia without hesitation. I would die for this country.

I love Australia for what it stands for. It embraces opportunity, inclusion and, most important of all, mateship. What Australia has taught me is that if you give something – like the hand of friendship or provide a service that fulfils a need – you will be repaid many times over. They say that America is the “land of opportunity”, but I say Australia is. I’m a good example – a boy from Broadmeadows made good.

That is also why I am giving back to the community in the form of the llhan Food Allergy Foundation to promote research and education into food allergies that affect hundreds of thousands of Australians.

On Australia Day, I am lucky enough to be playing the role of an ambassador and will speak to a gathering of people in Melbourne about my family and what it means to be Australian. It will be a chance to celebrate with others what was the best decision my family ever made — to come to this wonderful country and the great city of Melbourne.

Australia doesn’t owe us anything – we owe Australia.

Al Jizzeera & The Muhammedan Propaganda Jihad

By Sheik Yer’mami

Misspelling intended:

Allowing Al Jizzeera, a Muhammadan propaganda network, to disseminate enemy propaganda into America’s living rooms is the utmost folly. This is not ‘freedom of speech’ – its idiotic. It is equally bad to have numerous hate-stations like Al Manure (misspelling intended) beam ME-filth all over Europe, where 20 million Muhammedan immigrants are constantly fired up about perceived wrongdoings by western ‘imperialists or colonialists’,- and the call for jihad becomes irresistible to those ‘youths’ who normally torch cars to advance the global jihad.

Not everybody is that smart, not everybody understands what the Muhammedan agenda is all about, and we are at war. Given that ‘war is deception’- we are handing the enemy a major victory by allowing them to spread poison in our society, when we haven’t got the chance of a snowflake in hell to get a reciprocal arrangement.

Charles from LGF has a take on this:

The chances for Al Jazeera becoming a “force for good” are slim to none. The organizations and forces behind Al Jazeera have nothing but hatred for the West, have declared war on us, and are actively dedicated to our destruction. We would not have allowed the Nazis to broadcast their propaganda in the US during World War II, and we should not allow this enemy media front to spread its poisonous ideology in the US today.


Sheik to run for Iemma’s seat, says report
January 20, 2007
Article from: AAP

CONTROVERIAL Muslim leader Sheik Taj el-Din al-Hilaly is considering running in the March 24 state election for Premier Morris Iemma’s seat of Lakemba.

The sheik will also endorse two Muslim candidates for the Labor-held seats of Bankstown and Auburn, newspaper reports said.

While the mufti has not yet named the candidates or confirmed his own intentions, his frequent spokesman and defender Keysar Trad confirmed he was considering taking on Mr Iemma.

“If the community intimates its desire to run him, we would accept him to accede to the community’s wishes,” Mr Trad reportedly said.

“It is time that politics in NSW received a good shake-up and Iemma’s dilemma will be the dearth of Lakemba voters who are dissatisfied with the shortage of facilities and services and will vote accordingly.”

Sheik al-Hilaly told SBS Arabic Radio from Egypt: “I am consulting with some of my brothers and, on my return, we will agree to nominate a sincere, honest Australian personality whose loyalty is totally to Australia and who is able to make contributions to the Lakemba electorate and NSW in general.”

Mr Iemma said he was looking forward to a showdown with the sheikh.

“I am confident the majority of my electorate, including the majority of Muslim constituents, would back my views any day,” he said.

Lakemba is 13 per cent Muslim. Mr Iemma won 64.21 per cent of the vote in the last election.

Aussie Police Seize ” Hate & Kill Kuffars” Videos

Unfortunately anyone with a CD burner can churn them out in unlimited numbers, so confiscating a few won’t do anything to nip the Jihad ideology in the butt. As long as there are mosques there will be hate-preachers and there will be more & more of those who follow the call to jihad. But not to worry: As we all know, jihad is nothing but “inner struggle”….

*Police seize Muslim ‘kill enemies’ videos
By Simon Kearney and Tracy Ong from The Australian
January 20, 2007

FIREBRAND cleric Sheik Feiz Mohamed’s defense of his comments on a DVD calling children to jihad has been undermined by revelations, the video also urges Muslims to kill the enemies of Islam and praises martyrs with a violent interpretation of jihad.

In the DVD, which runs for almost four hours, Sheik Feiz describes inmates of Guantanamo Bay as better Muslims than those in Australia, who would would not forsake their lifestyles for martyrdom.

*Damn! And I thought they were all innocent victims of American imperialism!

“The brothers in Cuba are better than us,” he said. “They are being examined through the best examination (a reference to God’s judgment) and the like of them worldwide.”

The sheik, who left Australia in 2005 to live in his father’s homeland, Lebanon, exhorts his followers to seek the honorable death of the believer, quoting from narrations about the prophet Mohammed.

“They fight in the cause, they kill others – the enemies who fight Islam and they themselves are killed as martyrs,” he said. He gives the example of a mujaheddin who fought in Bosnia in the 1990s who spoke of nothing but jihad and was killed on the battlefield. “What a beautiful person to be associated with. Would you not like to be an associate of this person?”

The DVD was a recording of a series of passionate fire-and-brimstone sermons that told his audience over several weeks nearly four years ago his thoughts on the way to live their lives. “This is our intention that we want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam, loving Islam,” he said.

Details of the DVD’s contents have sparked an Australian Federal Police investigation and have been met with condemnation.

* Who would possibly condemn the ‘Religion of Peace?’ Are you some kind of Islamophobe?

AFP officers visited the Muslim youth centre founded by Sheik Feiz yesterday to collect a copy of his DVD, which was handed over voluntarily by members of the 4000-strong youth movement.

The two federal agents who arrived at the Global Islamic Youth Centre at Liverpool, in Sydney’s west, declined to comment on the investigation.

About 200 worshippers were at midday prayers yesterday because Friday is Islam’s holiest day of the week.

The centre’s managers referred The Weekend Australian’s inquiries to a phone number, which rang out.

One of Sheik Feiz’s former students, Zeky Mallah, who was acquitted of terrorism charges, said the sermon was normal. “That’s something that’s normal with any Islamic scholar. It’s just a way of speaking about things,” he said.
*Normal? I don’t recall having been tought to go out and kill Muslims, not by my teachers, not by anyone else, ever…

Do your kids learn that in school or in church?

Sheik Feiz told The Australian on Thursday that his reference to jihad did not mean violence. He said he was against suicide bombing and violence against others.

*Could it be that he is lying? Hmm, and i always thought Mohammedans were forbidden to lie…

However, the DVD is littered with references to violence and a call to arms – most of which is made using examples of historical warriors as an admonishment to modern Muslims for straying from their path.

“If you’re a hardliner, you’ll say these in lectures; if you’re a moderate, you’ll keep these views to yourself,” Mr Mallah said. “It’s not really inciting violence. It is saying to stand up for yourself, to defend yourself and defend your land.”

* In other words, you’re either a bomber or you will be bombed. Got it!

Muslim internet forums were buzzing with criticism of the media for running the story yesterday, accusing news outlets of misinterpreting the meaning of jihad, which can also mean a peaceful quest to be a good Muslim.

*Right. Blame the media. Its all ‘inner struggle’-

I think I need a laxative!

Islamic Friendship Association’s Keysar Trad said that, while he could not comment on behalf of Sheik Feiz, jihad literally meant to “exert effort”, the highest form of which was to stop oppression.

*Now it begins to make sense! So who are the ‘oppressors?’ Us, the kuffars? Could it be that we haven’t surrendered yet and that the sharia is not yet the law of the land?

Keyzar would know. He’s an expert on Islamic jihad all his life. He’s a pro..

But he attacked politicians for “tripping over themselves to attribute the most controversial comments to Muslim leaders”.

“Whilst I don’t endorse in any way (Sheik Feiz’s) comments referring to Jews, nor ambiguous references to jihad, I’m concerned that NSW Premier Morris Iemma has come out and expressed a view on Islam that it only means violence, which is not the case,” he said. “It’s very distressing to me and fellow Muslims.”

* Keyzar, perhaps people realize that denial and your “out of context”-BS just doesn’t cut the cake anymore…

Bangkok Bombings The Work of Jemah Islamiyah

Jihad in Thailand:


What happens when a bunch of Muhammedan Generals launch a
coup d’etat in a Buddhist country? Needless to say: You get a reinforced insurgency and bombs go off everywhere, you get all the lies you don’t want to hear and with just a little understanding, ‘context’-, it all falls into place:
Bangkok bombings the work of JI
Ron Corben, Bangkok

The Australian
January 20, 2007
THAI intelligence agencies say operatives of the regional terror network Jemaah Islamiah were directly involved in the New Year’s Eve bombings in the Thai capital that left three dead and 40wounded.

In reports seen by The Weekend Australian, the agencies say a key JI leader in Thailand’s southern Narathiwat province was directly involved in the planning of the operation

“From the evidence we have gathered, there is a slim chance that it is related to the southern insurgency,” Mr Surayud said in the early hours of New Year’s Day soon after the bloodshed.

*War is deception, said Mohammed

“It is likely related to people who lost political benefits,” he said, referring to the former Thaksin Shinawatra administration that was ousted in a coup in September amid allegations of corruption and abuse of power and fears of street clashes.

*Same thing. Blame the victim. Its called projection…

In an interview with CNN this week, Mr Thaksin, who is now living in exile, denied any involvement with the attacks.

*Thaksin was probably the best PM Thailand ever had, why should he admit what he didn’t do?

No group has claimed responsibility for the bombings.

The eight bombs, set in crowded tourist areas that left at least seven foreigners among the wounded, cast a pall over the city that had largely escaped violence in a year of political turmoil.

However, Thai intelligence reports draw a direct link with the southern insurgency, including JI.
*Could it be that the Thai Intelligence Agency is not yet infiltrated by Muhammedans?

Downer Blasts Shysters Over Hicks

It never ceases to amaze me how many shysters, ‘human
rights organizations’ and bleeding hearts take it upon themselves to protect misfits, criminals, terrorists and other filth like Mohammed (Abu) Dawood, aka David Hicks. It is equally amazing to watch their misguided efforts to do whatever it takes to get him released from his ‘inhuman’ treatment at Gitmo.In Melbourne recently there were even some judges demonstrating on his behalf.

Any kind of lie, false accusations and an idiotic, romantic notion that Hicks was some kind of ‘revolutionary-‘ or just ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time’- must be rejected. People who make these claims are malicious, they should be treated as the moonbats and nutroots they are.


Official blasts Gitmo inmate’s lawyers

By PETER JAMES SPIELMANN, Associated Press Writer Sat Jan 20,

NEW YORK – Australia’s foreign minister on Friday criticized lawyers representing the only Australian inmate at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay for disputing his report that the man is healthy.

David Hicks’ Pentagon-appointed lawyer, Maj. Michael Mori, has repeatedly said his client is suffering from severe depression after being incarcerated for five years without a trial.

“I think it is preposterous that I should be attacked for explaining … that in the last week or so somebody visiting him spoke to him and he seemed to be in good health,” Foreign Minister Alexander Downer told reporters in New York.

Downer was quoted Thursday as saying that Hicks met recently with an unidentified foreign citizen. “There was no suggestion that he was suffering from mental illness, though no doubt he doesn’t like being in Guantanamo Bay,” Downer told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio.

Hick’s legal team has been reported as saying that the visitor was a U.S. consular official with no special medical or psychiatric qualifications.

Downer also said Friday that Hicks, 31, will face new charges to replace previous charges of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit war crimes and aiding the enemy.
