Banned: Sheik Bilal Philips.

EXCLUSIVE: THE Howard Government has banned a radical Muslim sheik from entering Australia to speak at a major Islamic conference in Melbourne on the weekend.

Sheik Bilal Philips, who has been linked to the 1993 World Trade Centre bombings in New York, was refused a visa at the last moment by Department of Immigration officials, sources told the Herald Sun.
It is believed the department acted on advice from national security agencies.

Sheik Philips, 50, a Canadian citizen who lives in Qatar, once wrote: “Western culture, led by the United States, is the enemy of Islam.”

The US Government named him as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 bombings that killed six people and injured 1000. He was deported from the US in 2004.

A second speaker billed to attend the first annual Australian Islamic Conference at Melbourne University on Easter weekend has been asked to show cause why he should be allowed to enter the country.

Sources said it was unlikely that Sheik Jaafer Idris, a Saudi-based academic, would be able to provide information in time.

Four other foreign Islamic speakers have been granted visas, including controversial Briton Yvonne Ridley, who has described suicide bombings as “martyrdom operations”.

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews confirmed last night that Sheik Philips’ visitor application had been refused.

“The department checks each individual against the movement alert list, which contains approximately three million records of persons of concern, including those who may pose a national security risk,” Mr Andrews said.

“My department works closely with security and law enforcement agencies to ensure the data held on the movement alert list is accurate and current.”

Mr Andrews said that all visitors to Australia had to meet character checks as part of the visa application process.

“I can assure you that in all cases my department conducted the usual checks and screening processes,” he said.

The Melbourne University conference is sponsored by the Islamic organisation Mercy Mission, which is promoting the event with the slogan “Islamic values are universal values”.

Sheik Philips was born Dennis Philips in Jamaica. His family moved to Canada when he was 11.

He was a Communist Party activist before converting to Islam.

* In other words: He is a sucker for totalitarian madness. If he wasn’t a commie he would be a Nazi. In this case he became a Muhammedan.

He holds to a radical form of the religion that advocates marriage to pre-pubescent girls, public executions and stonings.

During the first Gulf War, Sheik Philips helped to convert hundreds of American soldiers to Islam while they were encamped in Saudi Arabia, according to US Government reports.

* Imagine a situation during the cold war when we were fighting the commies and some of our soldiers  would openly ‘convert’ or ‘revert’ to communism. Unthinkable!.

Hard to imagine that we are now governed by clueless jerks who allow our soldiers to become turncoats in the middle of a war. Even more bizarre that it all happens right in our face and under our noses and because of political correctness and because of ‘religious freedom’ everything we hold dear is being perverted.


He told the London weekly Al-Majallah that he was employed by the Saudi military to run a camp for cultural information at a US army barracks solely to win over US troops to Islam.

Sheik Philips has advocated on his website that “the cutting of hands and heads, stoning of people to death, and (public) lashings are only to be held on Fridays”.

Sheik Idris, 76, a Sudanese citizen now teaching in Saudi Arabia, espouses the radical form of Islam known as Wahhabism.

Italy: Another “Kill the Christians, Kill the Jews”-Imam caught on camera

But of course it was all ‘out of context’ – Not to worry!

Keyzar Trad, where are you? How’s your Italian?

Gavin King   flash-as-a-rat-with-a-gold_thumb3.jpg

Jack Herman: Please tell us it isn’t so and that WE ARE ‘haters’ and that ‘there is nothing wrong with Islam…’

Whenever one of these hate spewing assholes Allah fearing clerics get’s caught, all he needs to do is just lie and deny, and a week later everything is back to normal.

These filty kuffars are such idiots!

They can’t even tell a ‘moderate’ from a ‘radical!’


Rome, 3 April (AKI) – Prosecutors in the northern Italian city of Turin were scheduled to start investigating on Tuesday footage of an imam at the local Cottolengo mosque, Mohammed Kohalia, calling on Muslims to hate Christians and Jews and praying for their death. “The Prophet has said that the extremists [Jews and Christians] will be destroyed,” the cleric is heard as saying in footage secretly filmed by a journalist. “Allah should kill the polytheists.”

*Kohalia has denied making those statements.
The DVD portraying Kohaila’s sermon was filmed with a hidden camera by a faithful attending the prayers on behalf of a news programme on state broadcaster RAI’s second channel, Annozero. Only part of the footage was broadcast last Thursday while the remaining 40 minutes containing the harshest threats against Christians and Jews could reportedly be shown later this week.

The footage also allegedly shows magazines calling for jihad, or holy war.

In the video, Kohaila says that “no compromise can be reached with atheists, they must be killed, full stop.”

* Resident poster ‘atheist’ please take note!

He also talks about women saying that “men are superior: a 500 [small FIAT car] cannot compete with a Ferrari” and tells the gathering that men should beat women who disobey.

In accord with Qur’an 4:34.

Kohaila’s predecessor, Bouriqi Boutcha of Morocco, was expelled from Italy in 2004 on suspicion he was linked to Islamic militants.

“Inner Struggle” in Indonesia: 20 bombs, 730 kilograms of explosive material, 45 kilograms of TNT, almost 200 detonators, more than a thousand rounds of ammunition and a cache of weapons

Looks as if some serious interior spiritual struggle was in the works. “Man shot dead in Australian-Indonesian terror raid,” from AAP, with thanks to Jihad Watch

Australian and Indonesian police have foiled terrorists with links to Jemaah Islamiah during raids in East Java, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) says.
“The close co-operation between the two agencies has resulted in the arrest of eight men linked to Al Jama’ah Al Islamyah (JI),” an AFP statement said.

Indonesian National Police shot dead one man during the raid.

The cell is alleged to be close to JI military leader Abu Dujanah.

“One of the suspects is believed to have close associations to the bombing of the Australian Embassy,” the AFP said….

Police seized 20 bombs, 730 kilograms of explosive material, 45 kilograms of TNT, almost 200 detonators, more than a thousand rounds of ammunition and a cache of weapons.

Head of the INP bomb team General Surya Dharma said the raids had averted a major terrorist attack.

“Traditional and even mainstream Islamic teaching accepts and promotes violence”

Just when you thought it would never happen: The notoriously clueless catch on:

In “The Trouble With Islam: Sadly, mainstream Muslim teaching accepts and promotes violence” in, of all places, Opinion Journal = Wall Street Journal (which is generally among the willfully clueless derided in this piece), Tawfik Hamid speaks truth to power:

But indeed, there is much that is clearly wrong with the Islamic world. Women are stoned to death and undergo clitorectomies. Gays hang from the gallows under the approving eyes of the proponents of Shariah, the legal code of Islam. Sunni and Shia massacre each other daily in Iraq. Palestinian mothers teach 3-year-old boys and girls the ideal of martyrdom. One would expect the orthodox Islamic establishment to evade or dismiss these complaints, but less happily, the non-Muslim priests of enlightenment in the West have come, actively and passively, to the Islamists’ defense.

It is vital to grasp that traditional and even mainstream Islamic teaching accepts and promotes violence. Shariah, for example, allows apostates to be killed, permits beating women to discipline them, seeks to subjugate non-Muslims to Islam as dhimmis and justifies declaring war to do so. It exhorts good Muslims to exterminate the Jews before the “end of days.” The near deafening silence of the Muslim majority against these barbaric practices is evidence enough that there is something fundamentally wrong.

Tolerance does not mean toleration of atrocities under the umbrella of relativism. It is time for all of us in the free world to face the reality of Salafi Islam or the reality of radical Islam will continue to face us.

Iran Releases German Tourist (Well, not yet…)

Sheik yer’mami ran this story here :

Every Infidel is a Hostage and a bargaining Chip

Iran has released a German tourist it held for almost 16 months because his boat accidentally strayed into restricted waters during a fishing excursion in the Persian Gulf. Klein’s family and the German government spent over a year pleading with Iran to let him go. Now he’s got to wait for an exit visa.

File picture dated 12 March 2006 showing German Donald Klein attending an appeals court hearing in the town of Bandar Abbas, in southern Iran.
Donald Klein’s ordeal is almost over. Iran has agreed to release the German tourist two months early after he spent almost 16 months in jail because his fishing boat accidentally entered a restricted zone in the Persian Gulf while on vacation in Dubai.

Klein, 53, from Lambsheim in southwestern Germany, was sentenced to 18 months in jail by an Iranian court for illegally crossing a border. The sculptor, a passionate angler, had been on vacation in Dubai in November 2005 and had hired a boat to catch swordfish and parrot fish in the Persian Gulf.

The Iranian authorities released his French skipper, Stephane Lherbier, on February 25. He had steered the vessel into the Strait of Ormuz and close to the island of Abu Mussa, a restricted zone. Both Klein and Lherbier would have reached the end of their sentences at the end of May.

It’s not yet yet clear when Klein will return to Germany. He is still waiting for an exit visa. Klein’s lawyer Klaus Kübler said: “It’s a great joy and a great relief for his family and him.”

Iranian officials had initially responded to German appeals for his release by linking the case to that of Kazem Darabi, serving a life sentence in Germany for the 1992 assassination of four Iranian-Kurdish opposition leaders in a Berlin restaurant.

Right. For the thugs in Iran a ‘trespassing’ tourist has the same value as a mass-murdering assassin. Nice try. But the poor bugger isn’t free yet.

First he needs an ‘exit visa’- do I smell $$$$$$ ????

US: Another Beslan in the making?

HOMELAND INSECURITY

From WorldNet Daily 

Terrorists – coming to a school near you – Police ill-equipped to defend against an American Beslan

*

Authorities fear the school massacre that shook Russia a few years ago may be a dress rehearsal for what al-Qaida plans to do in America – only on a grander scale, launching multiple school attacks simultaneously across the country.

In 2004, Chechen terrorists associated with al-Qaida seized a school building in Beslan, Russia, and slaughtered 338, including 172 children.

Three years later, schools and local police in this country are still unprepared to deal with such an assault, experts warn. Most don’t have response plans for handling a single active shooter, let alone a cell of trained terrorists launching a large-scale attack.

Yet terror cells secreted inside America may be planning to use buses, as well as other vehicles and methods, as a Trojan horse to infiltrate school campuses and massacre students and teachers.

The FBI and Homeland Security Department last month distributed a bulletin to law enforcement across the country warning that Muslims with “ties to extremist groups” are signing up to be school bus drivers. They also noted “recent suspicious activity” by foreigners who either drive school buses or are licensed to drive them.

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman

“The enemy is infiltrating us at all levels, and certainly school bus drivers are one area to look at,”
warned retired Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, president of Killology Research Group, an anti-terror consultancy that trains the FBI and other law enforcement. “And how about high school, middle school and elementary school cafeteria workers? Janitors? Delivery people?”


Grossman says some school district security officials he works with have expressed concerns about some of the Muslim employees schools are hiring.

“But no one dares profile them,” he told WND.

“Islamic terrorists are already in place in the U.S. and, yes, that includes bus drivers, cafeteria workers and also airport workers,” added Grossman, a former Army Ranger and West Point professor.

Because Jihad is the ‘Pinnacle of Islam’ – Catmeat- Sheik Update:

Jihad (in Arabic, “struggle”) is the central duty of every Muslim. Jihad is the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

Because the radicals are the ‘good Muslims’- the ‘moderates’ always take the backseat:

The ‘Catmeat-Sheik’ al Hilali is a nasty piece of work and many Muslims tell us that he ‘doesn’t speak for them’ or that he is ’embarrassing’- but should we believe them? Because when it comes to the crunch the radicals have the scriptures on their side. The overwhelming majority of Muslims supports the ‘real Islam’- not just some ‘diluted version, and not only in Lakemba. Catmeat Sheik Hilali is the man…

The jihad against infidels, Jews, ‘polytheists’ and ‘hypocrites’ must be fought by any available means, but when it comes to money, a good Muslim always does what’s best for the cause: If given a choice to give money to the needy or for the jihad, the jihad will always come first. Hilali and his followers know that. But now they are being accused of doing just that: How ’embarrassing!’
Just last month the Newcastle mosque was taken over by ‘radicals’– if we take a closer look we will quickly find that the Hilali’s are in control, just about everywhere. But who cares? As long as our politicians and our politically correct media keeps telling us that it is only ‘a tiny minority of extremists’ there is nothing to worry, is there?

Australia’s Lebanese Muslim Association is forced to issue an apology and pledge to repay Muslims whose donations to the Sheik’s “charity” were apparently handed over to terrorist supporters:

Pledge to repay Hilali’s donations

Richard Kerbaj / The Australian

THE nation’s most powerful Islamic association has promised to repay more than $US10,000 ($13,000) in donations raised by Australian Muslims for Lebanese war victims that ended up being handed over in cash by Taj Din al-Hilali to a “suspect” radio station in Lebanon.
The Howard Government has also attacked Sheik Hilali, the mufti of Australia, for betraying the trust of Australian donors by dishing out money to supporters of Iraqi jihadists.

* Please note: ‘The Howard government’- does that mean the left has already sided with the opposite camp?


Lebanese Muslim Association president Tom Zreika said yesterday his organisation was prepared to pay back donors any money that Egyptian-born Sheik Hilali could not properly account for.

He said the LMA would launch an investigation into exactly how Sheik Hilali distributed the $70,000 raised by the organisation in conjunction with other Islamic bodies, following last year’s Israel-Hezbollah conflict in southern Lebanon.

“We will take all the necessary steps to bring to account any mishandling of funds in Lebanon and will further investigate the $US10,000 given to a suspect radio station,” Mr Zreika told The Australian, referring to the Islamic Tawhid radio station, which supports jihad in Iraq.

Norwegian Muslim Cabbies Refusing to Carry Guide Dogs

It isn’t just in Minneapolis that Muslim taxi drivers are pushing an extremist agenda, and refusing to carry passengers with alcohol, or blind people with guide dogs. LGF reader Fjordman translates an article from Norway’s Aftenposten that shows the exact same agenda in Oslo.

Coincidence? Of course not.

img102.jpg

Blind woman Gry Berg, accompanied by her guide dog, was denied entry into four taxis in the center of the city of Oslo, Norway, this March. Three of the drivers claimed that their unwillingness to accept her dog was due to allergy, while the fourth one simply locked the car doors and refused to give an explanation for why he wouldn’t let Ms. Berg into his cab.
