The ‘hate preacher’ hypocrisy

Douglas Murray

22 June 2017

Well this is interesting.  I had got used to the standard response to terror.  I had thought that when 22 young people get blown up by a suicide bomber in Manchester we were meant to say that it made ‘no sense’, that it ‘wouldn’t change us’ and that ‘love’ must overcome ‘hate’.

I thought that when a crowd of people get run over and a policeman stabbed to death we were meant to say ‘We may never know’ what caused such an outrage’.  And that when people slit the throats of Londoners while shouting ‘This is for Allah’ we agreed that only perpetrators themselves were responsible for such inexplicable actions?  At most, weren’t we just meant to rouse ourselves to a chorus of‘Don’t look back in anger’ and move on?

Well what a very different standard applies when the victims are a group of Muslims exiting a mosque.  Since that despicable attack I have watched with astonishment as British Islamists and the British left who are so insistent that we should all refrain from ‘pointing fingers’ after any Islamist attack have taken both their fists out for this one.

On Monday’sBBC Daily Politics, a spokesperson for the Muslim Council of Britain Miqdaad Versi – chose to leap right on in and name me as a hate preacher who should not be allowed to speak in public.  I am quite certain that there is no score-settling going on here.  I’m sure that this statement has nothing to do with the MCB’s ongoing bitterness about being barred from engagement with the British government – a stance which has held since one of the MCB’s leaders signed a declaration approving of attack on British ships.  And I’m sure that Miqdaad’s strange equation of me with the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary has nothing to do with my previous calling out of his own penchant for dodgy facts.

Later on Monday the BBC allowed it to happen again.  The BBC chose to interview Massoud Shadjareh about the previous night’s terror attack in Finsbury Park.  Mr Shadjareh is one of the leaders of the IHRC (Islamic Human Rights Commission). The IHRC is a group which, as I have said here before, is ‘farcically misnamed’. In his brief vox pop Shadjareh made sure to get straight down to business, swiftly naming the Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz and yours truly as ‘hate preachers’ who must be silenced.  Again, I am sure that Mr Shadjareh was not just settling scores.

Sydney: with bollards against Islamic terror

That’s what Islam does to our country. But you won’t find words like Muslims, Islam, jihad  or terror in this article from the Sydney Moonbat Herald. We’re already in an advanced state of dhimmitude.

The installation of concrete barriers in Martin Place comes after a series of fatal attacks where cars drove onto footpaths and hit pedestrians around the world.


Concrete barriers have been installed in part of Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD, in the first part of a plan to install barricades along the length of the pedestrian mall.

Workers began placing the long, narrow concrete blocks between Phillip Street and Elizabeth Street on Friday, a length of Martin Place which is next to the Lindt Cafe.

Some steel bollards already exist in the area, however they are limited to part of the pedestrian walkway where it dips to meet the road.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for the City of Sydney said the temporary barriers were “to block vehicle access in response to security concerns”, however there had not been a specific threat made.

“As part of our ongoing work to review and strengthen security in public spaces, the city is currently installing concrete barricades in Martin Place, between Phillip and Elizabeth streets,” the spokeswoman said.

“This is not in response to any specific threat. Barricades or bollards will be rolled out to other stages in Martin Place over the coming weeks after further consultation with NSW Police and emergency services.

“The city is continuing to work with NSW Police on reviewing public places of mass gathering, on City of Sydney land, to determine if additional bollards or barricades are required.”

Hizbutniks threaten war with Oz

There are those who shriek we should ban this group, because they are honest and outspoken. This would be foolish. We should regard the Hizbbuts as a blessing, because they are straightforward about Islamic intentions & stick to their belief as per Qur’an, sira & hadith.

‘A clash is inevitable’: Australian leader of Islamist extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir says there will be a WAR with Islam – and compares the West to a prisoner who won’t reform
  • Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Wassim Doureihi says there will be a clash with Islam
  • He wants Muslims to demand ‘wholesale change’ for global Sharia law caliphate
  • The extremist told a Sydney conference Western civilisation was like a prisoner 

An Islamist extremist group the Australian government is refusing to ban has declared there will be a war between Islam and the West.

Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Wassim Doureihi, who wants a global Islamic caliphate based on Sharia law, has urged Muslims to take up arms against Western civilisation.

Quran 9:29

Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth [fight] until they give the jizyah with willing submission while feeling subdued.

‘The change that Muslims must demand and humanity so desperately seeks is nothing less than wholesale, systemic change,’ he said.

Leader of Islamist extremist group says ‘a clash is inevitable’

Wassim Doureihi has previously repeatedly refused to condemn ISIS in an ABC-TV interview

The extremist, who who previously repeatedly refused to condemn ISIS in a TV interview, likened the West to a criminal who needed to  be confronted.

Not submitting to Islam makes us “criminals”.

‘The West will not evolve like a reformed prisoner seeking to remedy its past,’ he said.

‘Its existence is dependent upon the perpetuation of its crimes and the privileges it has long inherited, which is why we must confront another truth that a clash is inevitable between the existing world order and its proposed alternative.’

His comments, made at a recent Hizb ut-Tahrir conference in Sydney, were posted this week on the Facebook page of fellow leader Uthman Badar, who in March confirmed he supported the death penalty for ex-Muslims and jihadist activity.

Hizb ut-Tahrir's Wassim Doureihi says there will be a clash with Islam against the world order

Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman confirms support for killing ex-Muslims

Both Hizb ut-Tahrir leaders addressed the forum at Campsie, in the city’s west, asking if Australia could be setting up concentration camps for Muslims.

This is pure projection. Those familiar with Mohammedan doctrine are will aware of what awaits us if we allow this cancer to grow.

Eric Abetz suggests Yassmin Abdel-Magied moves to an ‘Arab dictatorship’

Liberal Senator suggests Yassmin Abdel-Magied moves to an ‘Arab dictatorship’

Rita Panahi criticises ABC presenter’s ‘idiotic statement’

A LIBERAL senator has suggested outspoken Muslim feminist (?) Yassmin Abdel-Magied leave Australia for an “Arab dictatorship”.

Eric Abetz made the call — which Ms Abdel-Magied has described as “baffling” — after the controversial former ABC presenter called the government a “neoliberalism capitalist project” during a speech at a Canberra leadership forum this week.

Speaking on a panel at the Australian National University, Ms Abdel-Magied suggested the Australian parliamentary system had failed.

“The traditional parliamentary system, I mean look at the photo of the House of Representatives,” she said. “It doesn’t represent anyone.”

Asked by an audience member if there were alternative forms of government that might work “as western democracies falter”, she applauded the question and said it was assumed the “neoliberalism capitalist project” had worked for everyone.

Senator Abetz took issue with the comment, responding on Facebook, saying Ms Abdel-Magied was “effectively backing Arab dictatorships where forced marriages, genital mutilation and sexuality-based executions are legal and reprehensible”.

“If Ms Abdel-Magied thinks our system of government is so bad perhaps she should stop being a drain on the taxpayer and move to one of these Arab dictatorships that are so welcoming of women.”

Ms Abdel-Magied’s taxpayer funded projects were criticised after an Anzac Day Facebook post on Facebook which said “Lest. We. Forget. (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine)”.

After the controversial post was brought to attention there were calls for the Ms Abdel-Magied to be replaced as presenter of ABC 24 program Australia Wide and removed from the taxpayer-funded Council for Australian Arab Relations.

Australian Wide has since been cancelled.

Ms Abdel-Magied told she found the Mr Abetz’s response baffling.

“I find it baffling that Eric seems to have taken such a keen interest in my movements,” she said.

Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who consults Hizb ut-Tahrir on all the important issues, takes aim at Australia’s shameful democracy.

She knows everything, inshallah:

Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied has declared Australia’s system of parliamentary democracy “doesn’t represent anyone”, and delivered a lecture on our inability to acknowledge that we live on “stolen land”.

The writer and mechanical engineer — whose ABC show was dumped last month — appeared on a panel at an Australian National University leadership forum in Canberra on Wednesday night.

Ms Abdel-Magied took a swipe at the media for taking the “easy option” and painting her as an “other” who poses a “threat”.

She’s mostly a threat to our taxes. Sounds like a fun night at the ANU:

Another audience member who identified himself as “Kevin” observed that there were alternatives to western democracies, such as theocracies in the Middle East and “relatively benign dictatorships” in Asia.

“Do you think that as western democracies falter and are unable to respond to policy challenges meaningfully, such as climate change, those alternative forms of governance and arranging society become even more popular and more attractive?” Kevin asked.

Ms Abdel-Magied said it was a great question because it the assumption that the “neoliberalist capitalist project” had worked for everyone.

It seems to be working for her. Still, there’s always the option of returning to Sudan.

The Mayor of Cologne Submits to Islam for Ramadan

Baron Bodissey

Henriette Reker is the immigrant-friendly mayoress of Cologne. She made the news in these pages a few times in the past, the first time after she was stabbed in the neck by a “xenophobe” when she was running for mayor. She became notorious after the “groping jihad” on New Year’s Eve of 2015 for remarking that women should stay an arm’s length away from migrant men if they wanted to remain safe.

Ms. Reker visited the new mega-mosque in Cologne on Friday to give a speech at an iftar dinner. She was in full dhimmi mode for the occasion — I’m surprised she wasn’t wearing hijab. You’d be well-advised to keep your antiemetic pills handy while watching the video below.

In Cologne, a Dozen-Muslim March Against Terror

Posted on by

A large Muslim demonstration and march against terrorism were planned for today in Cologne. Thousands of participants were expected. However, when the event kicked off, only a few hundred people showed up. And, if you examine the video footage carefully, you’ll see that most of those visible in the clip are ethnic Germans.

It’s Ramadan, you know — the Muslims were too weak and exhausted to take part…

Vlad Tepes dubbed it the “Dozen-Muslim March Against Terror”. Many thanks to Egri Nök for the translation:

Egri sent these notes and links earlier today, while the huge mass demo was still ongoing:

Muslims in Germany are holding a demonstration against terror today.

The organizer of this demonstration is a German-Syrian lady named Lamya Kaddor.

I strongly suspect she organized this in response to href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Marek Lieberberg’s asking why you never see Muslims on the streets demonstrating against terror, because she announced this event immediately afterwards.

She was a school teacher for Islam, and — in the eyes of the media and the general public — has become an “Islamic Scholar” and a celebrated public expert on terrorism, since five pupils of hers went to Syria to join the Jihad in 2013 (now that is one hell of a qualification, eh?).

The demonstration right now is trending under the hashtag “#findedenMoslem” (“Spot the Muslim” — like, a needle in the haystack).

In all fairness though, they are probably just staying away because Ditib, the Turkish Islamic organization, said Muslims should not participate, since it is Ramadan, and it would be unreasonable to expect people who haven’t eaten to be out and about in the glaring sun (it is cloudy and 17°C [63°F] in Cologne right now).

Focus: “Just a few hundred participants – Peace March by Muslims turns into a disaster”

Here are two jokes about today’s Muslim march:

  1. The director says to the cameraman: “Leave the wide-angle at home today.”

2.  Not sure if this will get lost in translation, but someone just commented on the Peace March: “New Year’s Eve, there were more Muslims in downtown Cologne” (the groping jihad)

Father Henri Boulad Calls a Spade a Spade on Islam


Christianity has traditionally defended the West from its enemies, both external and internal. But who will defend Christianity? Drained of conviction by political correctness, prominent clergy have been unwilling to resist both moral decadence and the rising threat of Islam, which historically has expanded mainly at the expense of Christianity (in Egypt, Syria, Asia Minor, the Balkans, Lebanon, etc.). Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad takes the bull by the horns:

Boulad believes that when it comes to dealing with Islam, the Catholic Church has succumbed to a “liberal left ideology which is destroying the West” based on the pretext of “openness, tolerance and Christian charity.”

In a June 10 interview with the Register, Father Boulad reveals that he shared these sentiments with Pope Francis in a letter he wrote to him last August, telling him that many think the Pope’s own views on Islam are “aligned with this ideology, and that, from complacency, you go from concessions to concessions, and compromises in compromises, at the expense of the truth.”

Truth is usually the first casualty of moonbattery. Other casualties soon follow, especially when the moonbattery enables Islam.

Father Boulad, an 85-year-old Egyptian, was asked, “What evidence is there to show that Islam is inherently violent?” His response lays the issue to rest:

Here are clear statements of the Koran itself :

“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191

“Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood.” Koran 9:123

“When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Koran 9:5

“Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Koran 3:85

“The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”… Koran 9:30

“Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Koran 5:33

“Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Koran 22:19

“The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” Koran 8:65

“Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” Koran 3:28

“Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.” Koran 8:12

“Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.” Koran 8:60

Father Boulad then cited other Muslim sources that unsurprisingly back up the Koran, and gave historical examples that form a bridge of carnage and brutality between Islam’s origins and its current application.

Contrary to the piteous bleating we hear from clueless and cowardly Western “leaders” like Theresa May, terrorism is not a perversion of Islam. As Father Boulad puts it, “Extremists are just applying what their religion teaches them to do.”

From his letter to Pope Francis:

“It is high time to emerge from a shameful and embarrassed silence in the face of this Islamism that attacks the West and the rest of the world. A systematically conciliatory attitude is interpreted by the majority of Muslims as a sign of fear and weakness. If Jesus said to us: Blessed are the peacemakers, he did not say to us: Blessed are the pacifists.”

Well said. Pope Francis may not listen, but with luck, others will.

Father Henri Boulad speaks truth to moonbattery and dhimmitude.

Latham Calls to ban privacy curtains for Muslim women at public pool

“Tradition  under threat.”

FORMER Labor leader Mark Latham has launched a petition to ban privacy curtains installed at a Sydney public pool to allow Muslim women to swim comfortably.

Mr Latham says the curtains, which were installed by Cumberland Council at Auburn pool so Muslim women can swim without being seen by other pool users, is threatening age-old Australian traditions.

Writing for right-wing online publication The Rebel, Mr Latham said public pools are a “great Australian institution”.

“For many decades, the public swimming pool has been a great Australian institution: affordable, open and full of people mixing together, regardless of their background, race and religion,” he wrote for his petition, Tear Down That Curtain.

“Now, this tradition is under threat.”

He then went on to say that the privacy curtains are discriminating against non-Muslim men.
“For non-Muslim men, the discrimination is twofold: they pay their Council rates, they pay at the pool entry point, but they can’t access the entire pool facility. Public services must be available to all the public.”

Tariq Ramadan wants an “internal discussion” about FGM

Tariq Ramadan Defends Female Genital Mutilation: ‘Part of Our Tradition’ and an ‘Internal Discussion’ for Muslims Only

by David M. Swindle

The infidels must have no say when it comes to Mohammedan mores, infidels don’t understand Islam. Hassan al Banna’s grandson is letting it all hang out. No “moderate Muslim” to see here.

Last week Imam Shaker Elsayed of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, was roundly condemned after a video emerged, courtesy of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), in which he recommends female genital mutilation to avoid “hypersexuality.”

Elsayed has since tried to withdraw his comments and apologized, saying “I admit that I should have avoided it. I hereby take it back. And I do apologize to all those who are offended by it.”

Elsayed’s weak-tea apology has not slowed the loud calls in the Muslim community for the Dar al-Hijrah mosque to fire him. But on Monday, influential Islamist thinker and activist Tariq Ramadan released a 10 minute video on Facebook expressing support for Elsayed staying on. Ramadan stated Muslim leaders who advocate for FGM should be understood as “brothers,” part of “our community” and Muslims who disagree should engage them with “internal discussion” and are instructed “not to expose them.” Here are some of the highlights from this video.

First Ramadan starts by framing opposition to FGM as a critique coming from “outside the community” and stating that he opposes the calls for firing Elsayed:

“I’m reacting to what I heard and some questions that I had about what happened in Washington with this controversy round a shaykh who was not yet fired – I hope he is not going to be, but he was asked to stop preaching and to stop being active within the community or within the mosque in Washington. And I think that some of the brothers and the sisters even wrote a letter after the controversy around female genital mutilation and excision asking for him to be fired from the mosque and reacting to a video that was posted about what he said in the gathering with Muslim students, men and women. Let me say three things about this because I think this [sic] are critical times and we have to be quite serious about the way we are reacting to controversies and the way we are reacting to some critiques that are coming from outside the community and we have to ask ourselves what we are doing.”

Next Ramadan makes his argument that because FGM is defended by some Muslim scholars it qualifies as “part of our tradition” and is therefore worthy of being “promoted”:

Canberra: Lots of “faith twisting” & “hijacking religion” to end “Islamophobia”

A Muslim group in Canberra is having frank discussions with the public in a bid to counter “misconceptions that feed Islamophobia.”

Your taxpayer dollars at work. Taxpayer funded Muselprop. Here’s our treacherous  gov’t financing Mohammedan proselytizing.  Who in his right mind would want this cult to spread, when it is clear that it is poisonous to our society, our culture and civilization?

Canberra ‘Meet a Muslim’ forums aim to end Islamophobia

Why do women wear headscarfs? What is Sharia law? Why are all terrorists Muslim?

It’s not always easy to field these questions on behalf of millions of Muslims worldwide, but a group in Canberra is doing just that – having frank discussions with the public in a bid to counter misconceptions that feed Islamophobia.

Muslims for Progressive Values organiser Saba Awan has coordinated four ‘Meet a Muslim’ events where Canberrans can ask anything they’d been wondering about Islam.

The group is planning their fifth Meet a Muslim event on June 26 in Belconnen.

How to be a useful idiot: Saudi funding in Australia

Petrodollars have corrupted all Middle Eastern study departments in the U.S. Australia is not immune. The soldiers of allah are well established here. There is hardly a university without ‘prayer rooms’ and foot wash facilities. Preemptive dhimmitude is a package deal.

The Griffith fiasco

In 2007 it was revealed that the Saudis were planning a $2.7 billion scholarship fund for Australian universities, designed to facilitate the entry of Saudi students into Australia to undertake tertiary education in the face of restrictions on their entry into the US and UK in the post-9/11 security environment.

It later emerged in The Australian that Griffith University “practically begged the Saudi Arabian embassy to bankroll its Islamic campus for $1.3 million”, assuring the Saudis that arrangements could be kept secret if required. The vice-chancellor promoted Griffith as the “university of choice” for Saudis and “offered the embassy an opportunity to reshape the Griffith Islamic Research Unit (GIRU) during its campaign to get ‘extra noughts’ added to the Saudi cheques”.
