Why would Bishop grant the mullahs this victory?

Julie Bishop takes on her sternest task as Foreign Minister today as she uses a historic visit to Iran to gain information about the fight against Islamic State and build a relationship with a nation in the process of shaking off its ­pariah status… Ms Bishop,  will wear a headscarf during the visit

Women successfully broke into the old boy’s club of international diplomacy long ago, but a rare visit to the theocratic state of Iran places a special burden on Australia’s first female foreign minister.

Julie Bishop elected to don a headscarf arriving in Tehran early on Saturday morning – a covering the local morality police force on all Iranian women.

Mooch didn’t wear the hideous shrouds:

To avoid any awkward moments, protocol also dictates Ms Bishop not extend a hand to shake when meeting Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani or other male dignitaries.

The imposed hijab is a constant source of middle-class debate in Iran, even occasional protest.

An exile Iranian journalist – who kick-started a popular Facebook page for Iranian women to post photographs of themselves bareheaded – had in recent weeks called for Ms Bishop to refuse to wear the covering.

But Ms Bishop said wearing the scarf, which she also covered with a hat, was not an imposition.

“As a matter of fact I wear scarves and hats and headgear quite often as part of my everyday wear,” she said.

Asked why she had pulled the scarf back to her shoulders for an early hours media conference shortly after arriving, she said it was more comfortable.

US first lady Michelle Obama sparked a mini-controversy in January by not covering her hair when attending the funeral in January of late king in Saudi Arabia, in what was quickly – and mistakenly – interpreted as a statement in support of women’s rights.

Head coverings are not mandatory for foreign women in Saudi Arabia, and both Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice went unveiled for official meetings in oil kingdom during their respective terms as US Secretary of State, wearing a scarf only when visiting a mosque.

Yet in Iran a decree following the 1979 religious revolution required all women conceal their hair in public.
In the 1930s under the rule of the Shah in Iran, women had veils torn off.

While some religious conservatives in Iran demand strict rules to govern interaction between the sexes, the wearing of the veil is reported to fluctuate across the country and over time.

Many women had visible hair beneath the veil on the street in the capital, and though men and women are segregated at bus stops, a number of couples walked hand-in-hand.

Yet there are boundaries. Six friends – three of them unveiled women – who posted a YouTube video dancing on Tehran’s rooftops to the Pharrell Williams pop hit Happy last year received a suspended sentence of one year in prison and 91 lashes, according to the BBC.

Women have also been targeted in vicious attacks with acid splashed in their face by men accusing them of “bad hijab” – attacks condemned by Dr Rouhani.

Ms Bishop is not the first senior female politician to navigate the religious rulings in the Islamic State.

Catherine Ashton visited Tehran last March as the European Union high representative for foreign affairs and wrapped her hair in a loose black scarf.

Photographs of Baroness Ashton had previously been digitally altered in Iranian media for “modesty” to conceal her neckline during early rounds of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.

Croatia’s foreign affairs minister Vesna Pusic and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark, now head of the UN Development Program, also visited Tehran in recent times and wore headscarves.

The Islamophobia stirred up by Abbott and Bolt is a bigger threat to us than terrorism

Unlimited immigration shyster and invasion supporter Julian Burnside’s inflammatory fantasy: 

The Islamophobia stirred up by Abbott and Bolt is a bigger threat to us than terrorism

Today’s hard reality:

Police have swooped in counterterrorism raids across Melbourne this morning, arresting five young men so far.

At least two of the arrests relate to allegations the men were preparing to launch a terrorist attack on Australian soil, with police officers believed to be possible targets.

UPDATE

Police claim two of the arrested men were plotting an “ISIS inspired” attack on an Anzac Day “activities”, using edged weapons.  They were from an unidentified “community”.

Police confirm that some are “associates” of Numan Haider, an Afghan-born Islamic State supporter who attacked two Victorian police with knives before he was shot dead.

But warning: the arrested men must be presumed innocent.

Tim Blair: Trudeau’s obscene moral abyss

HEROIC HITTERS

The New York Times reports:

Italian police on Thursday charged 15 Muslim men with homicide aggravated by religious hatred after survivors of a migrant boat rescued in the Mediterranean told investigators that the men had menaced Christians on board and thrown a dozen Christians overboard to their deaths …

The victims came from Ghana and Nigeria, the police said, while the accused are from Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal.

GarryTrudeau

The crucial issue here – particularly if you’re Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau – is whether throwing Christians to their deaths is an example of punching down or punching up. I suspect he’d go with up, on account of Muslims being “non-privileged” and “a powerless, disenfranchised minority”, as Trudeau whined in his recent, pathetic attack on slaughtered Charlie Hebdo staffers:

Traditionally, satire has comforted the afflicted while afflicting the comfortable. Satire punches up, against authority of all kinds, the little guy against the powerful. Great French satirists like Molière and Daumier always punched up, holding up the self-satisfied and hypocritical to ridicule. Ridiculing the non-privileged is almost never funny – it’s just mean.

By punching downward, by attacking a powerless, disenfranchised minority with crude, vulgar drawings closer to graffiti than cartoons, Charlie wandered into the realm of hate speech … 

Charlie Hebdo attacked with drawings. Their killers attacked with AK-47s. Trudeau is more upset about the former, as is New York artist Melanie West, a co-resident in Trudeau’s obscene moral abyss:

Christianity is a religion that features a lot of people with a lot of global dominance, while on the other side, Islam is a faith that has been bludgeoned in order to justify the pillaging and imperial slaughter of the East(What a perverse and twisted worldview! Gasp!) Within that context, a Western body blatantly disrespecting Islam (like when drawing the Prophet Muhammad) is dropping arrows from the top. They are driving salt into the wound. They’re punching down, and they shouldn’t be surprised when people get desperate and punch back.

blow-mohammed24

Or, presumably, when Muslims throw Christians into the Mediterranean, possibly due to the massive global dominance of Nigerians and Ghanaians. Mark Steyn has far more to say on the topic of Trudeau and his disgusting kind, expressed far more eloquently than I ever could, but for now let me add this:

The likes of Trudeau and West are too fantastically, rigidly stupid to understand that “comfortable” and “afflicted” are not permanent conditions. For example, if “comfortable” millionaire crap cartoonist Trudeau were to have been visiting friends in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, he may have found himself rapidly converted to “afflicted”, what with all the burning jet fuel pouring over him.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-11-at-8.07.23-PM

Likewise, the “afflicted” Islamic terrorists aboard those 9/11 jets, who were already “comfortable” enough in terms of upbringing, education and careers, became more “comfortable” still as they carried out their martyrdom missions. One supposes, too, that the “afflicted” Muslims floating off the Italian coast were more than “comfortable” tossing Christians to their deaths.

Among many others, Trudeau, West and Australian Guardian illo-pullet Andrew Marlton probably dreamed for their entire lives of the moment when they would bravely stand up to confront a democracy-opposing, women-hating, homophobic, theocratic fascist power. But when that moment came, through extremist Islam, they licked power’s boots. They caved. They ran.

They not only punched down, they fell down, pleading, on their knees.

Hamas: It’s ‘our right’ to abduct Israelis

A senior Hamas official in the Gaza Strip called on Thursday for the abduction of Israelis, who would be swapped for Palestinians held by the Jewish state.

“We tell the Zionist enemy: you are all a target for us and the resistance, we will fight you until we finally get rid of you and take as many captives as possible to free our heroes,” said Khalil al-Haya, whose Islamist movement rules the Palestinian enclave.

“Our men, our women, our children all envision kidnapping your soldiers and settlers, wherever they are,” he said on the eve of Prisoners Day which Palestinians mark April 17.

“And it is our right because we have no other way to free our heroes, and it is the Zionist enemy responsible for this state of affairs,” Haya told hundreds of Palestinians.–Hamas: It’s ‘our right’ to abduct Israelis to free prisoners

The Americans and Europeans will also have to listen very carefully to what Hamas is saying: namely, that a Palestinian state in the West Bank or Gaza Strip, or any part of the Palestinian territories, would not end its struggle to destroy Israel and replace it with the State of Greater Palestine.

The fatwa does not exist.

Judges should allow Muslim women to appear in court wearing a full-face veil, Britain’s most senior judge has suggested.

Lord Neuberger, the President of the Supreme Court, said it was crucial that courts and judges “show, and be seen to show” respect towards different customs.

Perhaps the good judge missed the memo that Mohammedans do not respect infidel law. In fact, many of them refuse to stand for the judge and demand to be tried under Islamic law. (SY)

Dullel Kassab, terrorist mum was once a house captian at a Melbourne Baptist school

Dullel Kassab, 28, took her children to Syria in mid-2014 after learning her husband, Sam, had been killed on the border with Turkey.

“We miss the children a lot,” a spokesman for the dead husband’s family has told News Corp Australia.

“Their safety and religion has been compromised and we are deeply worried but unable to do anything about it.

“We pray they come back but it does not look good.”

The woman’s father said Ms Kassab had travelled to the region to find answers about her husband’s death and “found some peace there”.

“I know she wants to come back and we are trying everything we can to bring her back,” Jalal Kassab said.

Ms Kassab has since remarried, and has reportedly posted concerning messages on Twitter.
