”It’s so disturbing that the images [of the riot] distributed around Australia and the world never mentioned the beatings, the provocations, the filth….

Eight years after the so-called “Cronulla Riots” Australians  start to realise how the political establishment and the state-run media perverted the narrative. The Muslim attackers became the victims while the victims of their attacks were vilified as  “racists & xenophobes”. Just to be sure it stays that way, a Labor driven ‘hate-speech’ initiative is being designed to turn Australia into a  ‘yuman rites’ circus that would terrorise free speechers just like in north Korea:  the draft bill reverses the onus of proof. A person accused of discrimination will be deemed guilty until the claim has been dismissed. The bill then even requires defendants who have been found not guilty to pay their own legal costs.

This proposal by O’Farrell is part of the latest push by the political class, of which he is a fully paid-up member, to increase the power and reach of the political class. 

Racial hatred bill offers open slather to obnoxious

Vermin n.1.noxious, troublesome, or objectionable animals collect-ively, especially troublesome or disgusting insects …3.obnoxious persons collectively.’

Several years ago I wrote a book about vermin, the kind defined by the third meaning in the Macquarie Concise Dictionary. Researching the book required me to sit incourts for months and go out and interview dozens of people. The heroine of the book was a teenager named Tegan Wagner who had been gang-raped by a group of young Muslim men. She came from the Shire and as her case was nearing an end, and I was nearing completion of Girls Like You, the notorious Cronulla riot took place.

In Iran, Spin Replaced Reality

Quote of the day:

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
Voltaire , French author, humanist, rationalist, & satirist (1694 – 1778)

Superstition?

Iranian cleric says Holocaust “superstition”

Since they ascribe Israel’s existence to the Holocaust, they believe this denial strips the Jewish State of all legitimacy. “Senior Iranian cleric dismisses Nazi Holocaust as ‘superstition,'” from the Daily Mail, September 5 (thanks to Jihad Watch)

But Muslims assure us that the next holocaust won’t be a myth:

Zionists Waiting To Kill Hidden Imam, Says Iranian Cleric

Iran’s President Mahmud Ahmadinejad accused the United States of doing all it could to prevent the return of Imam Mahdi.  “We have documented proof that they [U.S. leaders] believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts [the Middle East] and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world.

Mojtaba Zolnour, deputy representative of Iran’s supreme leader in the Revolutionary Guard, has said that “Zionists” are waiting for the Hidden Imam to appear to kill him.

Hojatoleslam Zolnour made the comments earlier this week at Qom University. (Radio Free Europe)

Iran = Nazi Germany with Baha’is as the Jews

Is “Never Again” Just a Slogan?
by Bill Levinson

From Baha’i woman recalls imprisonment in Iran This looks almost exactly like what Nazi Germany did to Jews during the late 1930s. Perhaps Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is now placing orders for Zyklon B…

    Baha’i blood is “mobah,” which means members of the Baha’i faith can be killed with impunity, the report says. Iranian authorities view Baha’is as “heretics” who may face repression on the grounds of apostasy.Since 1979, the Iranian government has executed more than 200 Baha’is and more than 10,000 have been dismissed from government and university jobs, the commission’s report says.Baha’is may not establish places of worship, schools, or any independent religious associations in Iran. In addition, Baha’is are barred from the military and denied government jobs.Khameini tweets:

    Iran’s Supreme Leader, headbanger in chief, now tweets!

    Today, in honor of Al Quds Day, he tweeted:

    Israel Is A Hideous Entity In the Middle East Which Will Undoubtedly Be Annihilated

    A half hour later, perhaps thinking that he didn’t properly make the point, he added:

    Israel Is Rushing Towards Its Decline And Is Doomed To Annihilation.

Betraying our Israeli allies for cheap spin

Greg Sheridan agrees that Kevin Rudd’s decision to throw out an Israeli diplomat smacks of the cheapest and nasiest kind of spin:

This is a government obsessed with the management of the daily media cycle… But it is very low-grade behaviour to ruin a key relationship such as that with Israel for domestic political advantage.

Sheridan doesn’t mention another factor I think is crucial to understanding this wild and damaging overreaction – Rudd’s desperate desire to woo Muslim nations in his campaign for a UN Security Council seat. About which, this latest news of Rudd-bestowed but taxpayer-funded junkets:

This week, for example, (Foreign Affairs Minister Stephen Smith) was allowed to host the opening of the Botswana High Commission. In Canberra. On Africa Day. You might think nobody would turn up for that, but you’d be wrong. The Australian government flew journalists in from South Africa, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zimbabwe for the event (curiously, not from Botswana). Such was the enthusiasm of Smith’s department for this event, they called it “Batswana” in the media release. We suppose he corrected this in the speech, which basically was aimed at getting Australia a seat on the UN Security Council but dressed up as concern for Africans.

KRudd steals your cash to advertise he’s a liar

Barrie Cassidy holds a liar to account for deciding to spend $38 million on taxpayer-funded ads arguing for his super profits tax:

In opposition, in an interview with Kerry O’Brien (video here), Kevin Rudd promised he would ban all publicly funded advertising within three months of an election – “unless explicitly agreed between the leader of the government and the leader of the opposition.

Tom Ormonde is astonished that more Australians don’t protest at the Rudd Government’s earlier taxpayer-funded campaign ads:

For those of you who haven’t seen the first ad (and that in itself would take some doing), it is a slick little production promoting the government’s revamp of the health system. The ad is interesting for all the wrong reasons – first, for the almost complete absence of information that the public actually needs to know and, second, for the thinly disguised party-political messages in the voice-over.

How can you sleep when the beds are burning?

It seems that Kevin Rudd’s free pink batts – meant to cut emissions – have started yet another fire:

A FIRE fought single-handedly by an 80-year-old woman in Ormond this morning was caused by faulty insulation.

Left Is Certain of Tea Partiers’ Motives, but Finds Terrorists Inscrutable

About snappers, toothaches, foreclosures and the religion that must not be named….

Dennis Prager

While it cannot be proven, there is little reason to doubt that many on the Left are disappointed that the Times Square bomber didn’t turn out to be the “white male” he was originally identified as.

This allegation may be wrong, but it is made on the basis of compelling evidence.

There is a perfectly clear pattern on the Left — the normative Left, not just the “far” Left — that denies the obvious when it comes to Islamic terrorism. Take, for example, Maj. Nidal Hasan, who murdered 13 fellow soldiers and tried to murder the 32 others whom he wounded at Fort Hood, Texas.

For days after the murders, liberal-Left commentators and mainstream media reports attributed Hasan’s mass murders to everything but his Islamic beliefs — even though it was known that he yelled out “Allahu Akbar” (“Allah is the Greatest”) just as he began his shooting.

As “Hardball’s” Chris Matthews announced, “It’s unclear if religion was a factor in this shooting,” and then added, “He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al-Qaida … That’s not a crime, to call up al-Qaida, is it?”

Unbelievable. State Run Media Completely Lost On Motive Driving Faisal Shahzad To Blow Up Times Square

The result of higher education in the US of A…..

It’s as if 9-11 never happened.
It’s as if the word “jihad” is completely foreign to them.
It’s as if they’ve never been warned about this threat to American security.

The  AP is perplexed. The news organization has no clue why a college educated Pakistani-born US Muslim would want to blow up Times Square in New York City. It’s as if this was the first time ever they’ve witnessed something like this.   This is like stepping into a Twilight Zone movie.  They really can’t be that blind. Can they? And yet, unfortunately, we have a president who is just as clueless to this threat facing America.

(I disagree totally. Obama is a Muslim. He is the Manchurian candidate. He is not clueless, he does what he does deliberately…/ed)

Hasan, the killer shrink, was twisting and hijacking the Koran…

Hasan was twisting and hijacking the Koran, you see, and it was the same sort of misunderstanding of Islam that led him to massacre so many infidels at Fort Hood, you see.

Well, that would be just great if he were, because it would indicate that the vast majority of peaceful Muslims don’t agree with Nidal Hasan’s apparent understanding of Islam. So let’s look at the Koran and see what it actually says, as compared to what Hasan said it says.  More>>

Nidal Malik Hasan

As usual, the main stream media feigns ignorance and stupidity:

WASHINGTON – His name appears on radical Internet postings. A fellow officer says he fought his deployment to Iraq and argued with soldiers who supported U.S. wars. He required counseling as a medical student because of problems with patients.

At least six months ago, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

He had been harassed about being a Muslim in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.spin, spin, spin…..

Fort Hood jihad shooter handed out Korans the morning of his attack

He handed out Korans? But didn’t what he read in the Book of Peace make him think that he shouldn’t go through with the massacre?

Or maybe he read that Paradise was guaranteed to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (9:111), and took that seriously.

Note also that he affected Islamic clothing — as did another “moderate,” Maher Hawash, before the latter embarked upon his jihad.

“Police raid shooting suspect’s Killeen apartment,” by Victor O’Brien for the Killeen Daily Herald, November 6 (thanks to JW):

Bell County SWAT teams barricaded and evacuated a downtown Killeen apartment complex where Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan lived before authorities say he killed 13 people and injured 30 more during a massacre at Fort Hood Thursday….

In the morning, neighbors said Hasan handed Qurans and donated his furniture to anyone who would take it.

Neighbors described Hasan as a quiet man who began wearing “Arabic clothing” in recent weeks. Edward Windsor, a neighbor, never suspected Hasan was in the Army. Hasan’s rank surprised Windsor who would never have imagined an officer with a rank of major would have lived in an apartment that rents for $350 and houses soldiers ranked as private first class….

Stoopid coming to Australia: really, really wishing that jihad was not … jihad.

Ayn Rand

If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject

Attorney-General McClelland is confident that if we get the lingo right “community harmony” will be strengthened and extremists “disempowered”. This is just what the learned analysts in the U.S. recommended. All seem to assume that the rank-and-file Muslims are getting their understanding of jihad and Islam from Western non-Muslims. Such a view is so preposterous as to beggar belief, but it now underlies the official policies of the U.S., the E.U., and Australia.

* Sliding deeper into KRuddistan and Fuzz-world: if we stop talking about it, the jihad might just… go away:

The U.S. started it, and now Australia is following. The assumption seems to be that if we stop talking about jihad (which American officials never did very much, anyway), the jihadists will stop waging it. A strategy for ostriches and cowards, not for free people.

Hamas "innocent civilian" of the day

With thanks to the elder of ziyon 

The EoZ PCHR research team, tentatively titled the “haqq” team (Arabic for “truth’,) continues to unearth more and more so-called “civilians” from the PCHR list that are anything but.

Today’s civilian is #267 of the PCHR list of dead Gazans, Abdullah Talal Ibrahim Aal-Sane’. Intrepid researcher Suzanne found a picture of Mr. Aal-Sane’:
alsane

Known as “Abu Hamza,” Aal-Sane’ was a sniper for the Al Qassam Brigades.

Doesn’t he look like an innocent civilian to you?

(Kudos to Suzanne, who is methodically Googling the Arabic names of every victim and discovering facts like these.)

We are now up to 283 fake “civilians” from the PCHR list, and we are up to 62.5% (177/283, including ten that the PCHR listed) of all the “policemen” listed there being known members of the Al Qassam Brigades or the PRC.
