“A shameful submission to the Muslim thugs”- Australian lecture tour canceled

Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) rejects wake up call

Update with thanks to Dhimmi Watch:

*

Hebrew University Professor Raphael Israeli, author of the superb Islamikaze, has had his six-week Australian lecture tour canceled by the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) — because of his remarks about Muslim immigration. Dr. Israeli has kindly sent in from Australia some observations on the incident:

*

I became a celebrity two days after I arrived, and that subsumed all the rest of my activities. When the storm erupted, the dhimmi-like Jewish leadership cancelled all activities, in a shameful submisssion to the Muslim thugs and under the false claims of a “multi-cultural society” in Australia, which they know is not true.
The story is two-sided: I gave an interview and said many harsh words about Islam in Europe, which the reporter extrapolated as applying to Australia too. The other issue is the political correctness which does not allow those things to be said, though privately everyone supports what I said.

In any case, my teaching on Islam stands and it even increased interest in my lectures, but the public lecture tour was cancelled and the Jewish leadership shamefully disowned me instead of standing up for me. I blamed the violence of Muslims in the world (and by implication here) for the troubles they are having, but they chose to accuse the messenger. They apologized to the thugs and brought upon themselves the disgrace of unconditional submission.

They do not want to rock the boat. They are scared to stir things up. The easiest way for them was to sacrifice the guest they invited, thus punishing not me, but the Jewish audiences who need the education for which I was brought here.

I was also struck by the provinciality of the place, where a minor item of gossip about one individual who said something becomes a national issue. I am not the Minister of Immigration. Before me the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Costello have said harsher things after Muslim riots, but someone elected to seize upon this opportunity now and sweep Australia into a storm in a tea-cup.

*

Cancelled or not, the good professor got the ball rolling. Now the debate will begin in earnest. Nobody was expecting the Israel & Jewish Affairs Council to lead the charge against the Muhammedan hordes.

Sure, their shooting the messenger and their surrender looks shameful and is in no way contributing to -what should be- their instincts of self-preservation. But then again: The Jews were never good at self-preservation, were they?

*

Here is the inevitable smear from an ‘Ali Harris’- (Ali- as in Muslim)

Please note the deflection to

‘racism/discrimination/ethnic/Indonesians’ etc. without ever touching the actual substance matter.

There is not even the slightest attempt to refute the professor at any time.

Do you notice anything missing from this chihuahua-like attack? For example, a counter-argument?


Racist Jewish Professor Sparks Uproar in Australia

By Ali Harris

A self described academic on Islam and Jewish professor, Raphael Israeli, has been condemned for explicit racism and sparking trouble in Australia after calling for a limit on Islamic migration to Australia, because Muslims were violent.

CARNIVAL IN GERMANY: ISLAM NO LONGER TABOO – Neither is BUSH-hatred

This particular idea never made it into the parade in 2006. This year, though, organizers in Düsseldorf say there will be no limits.

From SPIEGEL online:

By Philipp Wittrock
In light of the Muhammad cartoon scandal in 2006, carnival jokesters in Germany went easy on Islam. This year, Muslim satire will return to at least one parade.

Polemical, provocative and striking — such is the nature of carnival parades in Germany. Last year, when 43-year-old Jacques Tilly was thinking of how to address the plight of women in Muslim countries, he followed his satirist’s instinct. The float he designed? Four Muslim women in a row, each more covered than the last. At the end, a woman tied inside a large trash bag.

Mosques urged to fly Australian flag

With thanks to Peter / from 9MSM & National News

* They won’t fly the flag, of course not. Unless they are forced to do so, just like in most Muslim countries. But in most Muslim countries even the Friday kuthba, the sermon,- is prescribed (and censored) by the government

But we are liberal and tolerant, we cant push our nationalistic views on the ummah now, or can we?

*
Muslim leaders are calling for the Australian flag to be flown outside mosques as an expression of the Islamic community’s “loyalty” to Australia.

The Weekend Australian newspaper reports that a number of senior Muslim clerics have urged the country’s 300,000 Muslims to get behind the idea as a symbol of “integration” and pride.

“Even in Muslim countries in the mosque they fly the national flag … (such as) in Pakistan,” the former chairman of the Prime Minister’s Muslim reference group, Ameer Ali, told the newspaper.

“If that can be done in a Muslim country why not in Australia?

“We are Australian Muslims, and it (the flag) is a symbol of our national identity.”

But Muslim leader Keysar Trad said some community members would consider the idea of displaying the flag as “politicising a place of worship”.

“I have no problem with the flag being at Muslim schools, but a place of worship is for all people to be equal and as such I believe places of worship should maintain the tradition of not raising the national flag,” Mr Trad told The Weekend Australian.

Prominent Sydney-based Islamic cleric Khalil Shami also expressed fears that raising the flag outside mosques would lead to potential violence and further division with the community among factions opposed to the idea.

*

No Keysar, you are Muslims in Australia, not the other way around. You are the 5th column of the ummah, Keysar. We understand that. Besides, we know what you think of the ‘criminal dregs’ who proudly stand behind their flag. You are not one of them, Keysar:

And you never will be!

Wilders: Get rid of half of Koran!

They won’t, of course not. The Koran is ‘immutable’ and the religion of Islam is ‘perfect.’

‘Perfect’- just like the murderous, plundering rapist and child molester Mohammed, who is the actual object of Mohammedan worship.

‘Allah’- (from the pagan moon-god ‘Al-ilha’) was Mohammeds invention and excuse for a life long jihad, a ‘struggle’ that resulted in annihilation, enslavement and the forced conversion of all tribes in 7th century Arabia.

But by making such calls Geert Wilders, Faction leader of the Freedom Party in Holland, has put his life in mortal danger and needs 24 hour protection, including frequent change of quarters. The Dutch politician, who is said to be gay, is very courageous in light of the horrible murder on Theo Van Gogh. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali immigrant/politician, recently left Holland for the US. Hirsi Ali was deeply disappointed about the lack of support from Dutch politicians and the idiocy of the female movement there, which bickers over trivia rather than things that matter, like their future and the future of their kids.

Wilders with bodyguards
Wilders: get rid of half of Koran!

AMSTERDAM – If Muslims want to stay in the Netherlands, they should tear out half the Koran and throw it away. And they shouldn’t listen to the imam. Faction leader of the Freedom Party (PVV) Geert Wilders said this in an interview with daily newspaper De Pers on Tuesday.

He said the holy book of Islam contains “plenty of terrible things.” Wilders said once again that Islam is a violent religion. “If Mohammed lived here today, I would propose he be tarred and feathered as an extremist and driven out of the country,” he said.

The politician wants to impress on people that Islam is “the greatest danger threatening us.” He says that other political parties avoid topics like this. “Everything we are proud of, we are selling to the devil. Former head of the Mossad Efraim Halevy says that World War III has begun. I would not use those words, but it’s true,” said Wilders, who in the past has voiced his fear of a “tsunami of Islamisation in the Netherlands.”

Wilders: “Take a walk down the street and see where this is going. You no longer feel like you are living in your own country. There is a battle going on and we have to defend ourselves. Before you know it there will be more mosques than churches!”

* You’re right, Wilders. You don’t want your country to look like this. But first you have to get the Dutch off the cheese and behind you!

* Dutch comedians live in fear of Islam…

Update: ‘We will conquer your country with the bellies of our women…’

By Sheik yer’mami
An update to this story: Link

Hijabs, burkhas, niqabs, jilbabs, a sharp raise in crime, fear and intimidation, 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.”

In a recent survey on Canada it was predicted that with current trends the population of Muslims in Canada would exceed 30 % by 2025

In Australia the trend is like this:

30 years ago, there were about 25.000 Muhammedans in Australia. Today the official figures are said to be 350.000

A demographer studying Muslim migrant populations recently came up with the following:

*
Average Muslim migrant populations tend to double in size approx. every 10 Years.


Check this against our local Australian demographics:

2007 Approx. 300 000 Muslims 1.5 % of the population

2017 Approx. 600 000 Muslims 3 % of the population

2027 Approx. 1 200 000 Muslims 6 % of the population

2037 Approx. 2 400 000 Muslims 12 % of the population

2047 Approx. 4 800 000 Muslims 24 % of the population

2057 Approx. 9 600 000 Muslims 48 % of the population

Raphael Israeli, a visiting Jewish professor and an expert on Islam, says ‘LIFE can become untenable when the Muslim population of a non-Muslim country reaches about 10 per cent, as shown by France. When the Muslim population gets to a critical mass you have problems. That is a general rule, so if it applies everywhere it applies in Australia.”

Professor Israeli has been copping a lot of flak over his speech and much of it has been (deliberately?) misinterpreted. The Jewish Board of Deputies has distanced itself from comments by an Israeli academic who says Australia should limit its number of Muslim immigrants. NSW Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff today distanced his organisation from the comments. “We do not believe in racial or ethnic quotas or stereotyping,” he said.

“These comments do not reflect the position of the Jewish community and are unhelpful in the extreme. The Jewish community has a strong and proud record in fighting racism, and condemns all expressions of bigotry.”

*Vic Alhadeff unfortunately seems unable to tell the difference between an ideology and race. Since when is Islam a race?

Vic Alhadeff doesn’t seem to have any natural survival instincts. But then, Jews were never really good at self-preservation, unfortunately.

LIFE can become untenable when the Muslim population of a non-Muslim country reaches about 10 per cent, as shown by France, a Jewish expert on Islam says.

handshcar.jpg

The Australian Jewish News yesterday quoted Raphael Israeli as saying Australia should cap Muslim immigration or risk being swamped by Indonesians.

Professor Israeli told the Herald that was a misunderstanding. But he said: “When the Muslim population gets to a critical mass you have problems. That is a general rule, so if it applies everywhere it applies in Australia.”

Professor Israeli, an expert on Islamic history from Hebrew University in Jerusalem, has been brought to Australia by the Shalom Institute of the University of NSW. The Australia-Israel Jewish Affairs Council is co-hosting many of his activities.

He said Muslim immigrants had a reputation for manipulating the values of Western countries, taking advantage of their hospitality and tolerance.

“Greeks or Italians or Jews don’t use violence. There is no Italian or Jewish Hilaly [a reference to the controversial cleric Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly of Lakemba mosque]. Why?”

Professor Israeli said that when the Muslim population increased, so did the risk of violence.

“Where there are large Muslim populations who are prepared to use violence you are in trouble. If there is only 1 or 2 per cent they don’t dare to do it – they don’t have the backing of big communities. They know they are drowned in the environment of non-Muslims and are better behaved.”

In Australia, Muslims account for about 1.5 per cent of the population.

Professor Israeli said that in France, which has the highest proportion of Muslims in Europe at about 10 per cent, it was already too late. There were regions even the police were scared to enter, and militant Muslims were changing the country’s political, economic and cultural fabric, and demanding anti-Semitic and anti-Israel policies.

“French people say they are strangers in their own country. This is a point of no return.

“If you are on a collision course, what can you do? You can’t put them all in prison, and anyway they are not all violent. You can’t send them all back. You are really in trouble. It’s irreversible.”

Professor Israeli said that in Australia a few imams had preached violence. “You should not let fundamentalist imams come here. Screen them 1000 times before they are admitted, and after they are admitted screen what they say in the mosque.”

He said some Muslims wanted to impose sharia (Islamic law) in their adopted countries, and when propaganda did not work they turned to intimidation.

Professor Israeli said his task was to describe, not prescribe. He also said his warning did not include immigrants, including Muslims, who simply wanted to improve their lot. As long as they respected the law and democracy, their numbers — Buddhist, Muslim or Jew — were immaterial. It became material when a group accepted violence.

“The trains in London and Madrid were not blown up by Christians or Buddhists but by Muslims, so it is them we have to beware,” he said.

Keysar Trad, of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, said “Not only religious clerics need to be screened before entering Ausralia but also academics … this type of academic does nothing but create hatred, suspicion and division … We should review not only what the man has said but also those who have sponsored him, to see if they endorse those comments.”

*

Robert Spencer from JW on Keyzar Trad:

“True to form, deals with none of the substance of what Israeli said, and offers no alternative vision…”

*

Sheik yer’mami sez:

Keyzar Trad is a long time supporter of the global jihad and a disciple of the grand master Bin Laden himself.
On what pretenses did he enter Australia? Like Hilali, the ‘catmeat’ sheik, he should have never been allowed to put his feet on the ground here.

His own history of spreading hatred is manifested in his own writing:

Keysar on Australians:-

“The criminal dregs of white society colonised this country, and now, they only take the select choice of other societies, and the descendants of these criminal dregs tell us that they are better than us. And because we are not elitists, we tolerate them…”

You see, they are 1.5 % of the population and they (still) ‘tolerate’ us…

I will post Hugh Fitzgerald’s take on this in the comments section!

Report: Mahdi army commanders withdraw to Iran to lie low during security crackdown

‘War is deceit..’- said Mohammed, and we are being deceived. Because we abide by humanitarian standards, the enemy has none. Because ‘we want to be ‘better than them’- but they commit the worst atrocities and hide behind women & children, and they are winning. They accuse us of every crime ever committed, and it is them who are the genocidal zombies. This we call ‘projection’- accusing the accuser. But our elected leaders always fall for it, why? Are we unable to learn?

Hérouxville drops some rules from controversial code


Last Updated: Tuesday, February 13, 2007 |
CBC News
The town council in Hérouxville amended its provocative immigrant code of conduct Monday night to remove certain rules.

Council adopted the changes, which include removing references to “no stoning of women in public” and “no female circumcision.”

Councillors said the rules were open to misinterpretation by journalists who have flocked to the Mauricie town of 1,200 since it adopted the code of conduct in January.

Herouxville Wins: One group of People Can Make a Difference in Canada.

http://www.nationalpost.com/opinion/story.html?id=921413

A ground swell of support by Quebecers over reasonable accommodation by those who wish to impose their views on La Belle Province has changed Quebec as a force to be reckoned with forever, with the introduction of a New Quebec Immigration Bill, introduced by the Quebec Provincial Government in October 2008.

Many have said, one person or group of individuals cannot make a difference in the World.

The small town of Herouxville and it’s citizens have proved the World Wrong!

It is a hard fought day for all people who feel Right Makes Right, regardless of what those who wish to change the cultural landscape of Quebec to suit their self perceived political gain or media opinion to sell newspapers.

Other provinces across Canada, as well as citizens, politicians and media from all over the world took notice when in 2006 Herouxville “Dare State the Obvious. “Reasonable Accommodation” was not Reasonable at all when it is “complicit” in “losing our Cultural Identity,Customs, Language and National Identity as Canadians.”

For 400 years, We fought and died for those rights, and do not wish them to be taken away by anyone! Not now or ever!

Time will tell if other Provinces and Countries will take a cue from Herouxville’s “Motto” … When in Rome…. You are Roman……Our Laws, Our Culture, Our Country,

If you wish to immigrate here,and live amongst us,then all are welcome, just do not try and change us, for we are Quebecois, We are Canadian, we are a country of two languages French and English.

No Canadian would ever think of changing your customs, religion, language or laws if we chose to immigrate to your country. Again, When in Rome….Live as a Roman.

Either Love us, or Leave us, the Choice is yours.

“Immigration” to any country is a “Privilege, not a Right!” “Please Remember that!”

Herouxville wins

And that’s a good thing

National Post Published: Friday, October 31, 2008

So it becomes official: The tiny town of Herouxville has won the great argument over “reasonable accommodation” of immigrants to Quebec.

In 2007, Herouxville’s municipal council passed an official code of “life standards” designed to advise new Quebecers (though there were none in town yet) of the province’s culture norms. We do not, the code said, practise polygamy, separation by caste, sex discrimination or segregation or honour killing. Although it is a secular society, Quebec does observe traditional Christian holidays and has buildings and streets named after great Christian figures. Boys and girls play together in our parks and public facilities, and your doctor or lawyer or MP might be a woman. Get used to it.

Herouxville’s code is rambling, deliberately provocative and in parts just plain weird. But what mostly made it controversial — in this culturally relativistic age — was the core idea that Quebecers had the right to consciously impose any cultural expectations at all upon immigrants. And that idea has now been taken up by the government of Quebec, which announced Wednesday that it will require newcomers to sign a declaration promising to participate in the “shared values” of the Quebecois people.

The province’s neo-Herouxvillian document is simpler and much less objectionable than the original model — but it surely never would have been adopted in the first place if the little community hadn’t thrown down the gauntlet. From now on, immigrants entering Quebec will have to indicate their understanding and agreement that Quebec is a pluralist, liberal-democratic society where French is the official language, the sexes are equal, church and state are separate and secular law takes precedence over religion, though everyone is free to observe his own faith.

If a sign of liberalism’s lamentable journey from egalitarian origins to cheap identity politics were needed, one could find none better than the frantic race to object to this motherhood statement of what ought to be liberal fundamentals. The editorial board of the Montreal Gazette, for instance, complains that the declaration is unenforceable, and yet at the same time is “somehow repellent” in its explicitness and clarity and yet again is too “slippery” in its meaning to be of any good.

Elsewhere, we read of the declaration being denounced as a pre-election “political stunt”; this, of course, is what you call a very popular measure when you don’t personally like it. Would it be much of a “stunt” if it weren’t near-certain to win votes?

Other measures were announced along with the declaration: The province plans to expand French-language education for prospective immigrants, and language-training funding is also to be made available to Quebec employers who hire newcomers. Nobody described these expensive measures as “political stunts,” and some critics ignored them completely; only the culturally assertive, low-cost idea of advising immigrants how to integrate was singled out.

Perhaps most extraordinary was the quote from sociologist Victor Armony, in our own pages, to the effect that successful immigrants “don’t need Quebec society to patronize them.” But as we see it, the far more patronizing slight comes from doctrinaire multiculturalism, which refuses to recognize the reality that immigrants are real people with real values — not human props in a feel-good ethnic fun fair — and that oftentimes those values are in conflict with Canada’s, especially as regards women, gays and the place of religion in our society. Quebec’s government, like Herouxville, at least pays immigrants the respect of recognizing the hard edges on their worldviews, even as it asks them to bend them as the price of integrating into their new homeland.

That’s a fair price — one that millions of Canadian immigrants have paid since the birth of this country. We see nothing wrong with the Quebec government making this trade-off explicit. Indeed, we urge other governments to follow its example.
