Canberra Jihad: Most Senior Muslim Cleric praises Islamic jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan

From the Herald Sun

* Why bother, Swaiti? All us English speakers know that jihad is just an inner spiritual struggle. That’s what your coreligionists here in the U.S. tell us all the time. And they warn us that only wicked, wretched, frenziedly racist Islamophobes believe jihad has anything to do with warfare! So we know you meant that you hoped Allah granted victory to all the inner spiritual strugglers in “Palestine,” and Chechnya and Kashmir and Afghanistan and Iraq — right? Right?

* No doubt Gavin King  flash-as-a-rat-with-a-gold_thumb2.jpg would call him a ‘dinki di Australian’ and vilify anyone in his fishwrap who disagrees with his befuddlement with the ‘inner struggle jihad’ –

THE most senior Muslim cleric in Canberra has praised Islamic jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mohammed Swaiti yesterday called on God to grant “victory to mujahideen (Muslim holy warriors)” worldwide, The Weekend Australian newspaper reports.

“God grant victory to the mujahideen in his name in all places,” Sheik Swaiti called out twice in Arabic over a microphone at Abu Bakr mosque in Yarralumla in front of about 500 worshippers.

“God grant victory to mujahideen in Palestine, and Chechnya and Kashmir and Afghanistan and Iraq.”

While Sheik Swaiti translated his sermon into English for non-Arabic-speaking members, the imam of Canberra’s only mosque omitted the praise for Islamic jihadists in the English version.

After the sermon the Palestinian-born cleric denied he was referring to Muslim holy fighters, saying jihad referred not only to fighting but also to self-discipline.

“Jihad means no alcohol and no gambling,” Sheik Swaiti told the newspaper.

* Go on Sheik! Paint a pussy on my cheek! Lie and deny, because Mohammed said ‘War Is Deceit’- but it always works with the useful idiots, why change now?

“If we followed the jihad of the self … and followed the Koran, the whole world will be in peace.”

* Right, Sheik, unfortunately ‘pieces’ and peace is not the same thing, but if you say so: I feel the Islamo-peace a’coming already:

But Islamic Society of ACT president Sabrija Poskovic rejected the cleric’s suggestion he was not referring to fighters in his sermons.

He said the cleric was too radical and preached the wrong Islamic messages.

* No, not wrong. He is a ‘good’ Muslim and he preaches the warfare of the Koran and the Sunnah. He follows Mohammed. And Jihad is ‘the pinnacle of Islam’…

  1. And why isn’t this paragon of Muslim virtues among such brave warriors? These goofballs are giving armchair warriors a bad reputation.

  2. What, not the ‘out of context’ excuse? How stupid are our political leaders? The Muslims keep telling us they are hear to kill us, and our leaders stay in denial.

  3. Unbelievable. Andrew Bolt is right “is this really the best our Muslim leaders can offer? Is this really their “true picture” of Islam?”. Yep, and it’s only going to get worse.

  4. We all know what inner struggle in Islam is, and we all know them so called moderate Muslims tell big lies with big bells hanging out of them. What will we have do to get them stupid useful idiots to wake up? a bucket of ice cold water tossed over them, and a clout over the head with the Koran Sira and Hadith

    Dying and killing for the moon god freak show

  5. Where are the lefties on this??? Multiculti stuff does work, only with the right cultures. I am a result of immigration, but hell I love Australia, and have flags of Australia and NT (of course) in the front of my house. I speak another language to my relatives to practise, but they all speak english and are 100% grateful for being here. My mates and I are always said that we will be on the shoreline if Australia was ever threatened and we will fight to our last our last bullet against those who want to harm Australia.

    Why do we have to put up with this crap within our counrty?

  6. Once again islam showing its true nature. It’s the duty of jihad, to spread a belief-system which divides the world between believer and non-believer that is the problem. The more the free world (journos and pollies) dismiss these clerics as just isolated nutcases, the more freedom we lose, and the more ground they gain…

  7. Picked up this comment from another blog, its rather good:

    Why isn’t Mohammed Swaiti (funny how that name – Mohammed – keeps popping up) and his ilk on the next plane out of Australia – forever? Are the Australian authorities powerless? If so why?
    Muslims in Australia and Muslim immigration are national security issues, and should be treated as such.
    Why, 6 years after 9/11, are Australian (and Western) leaders still dithering on the Islam problem?
    It’s not as if they haven’t told us again and again that “Islam must dominate” and “We are here to slaughter you”.
    The pathetic term “War on Terror” should be “Defensive action against global jihad.”
    Should something like Beslan occur in this country with hundreds of Australian schoolchildren dead, those in government will be guilty of nothing short of criminal negligence.
    A terrorist conspiracy on the order of Beslan or 9/11 only becomes inevitable when the powers that be willfully choose not to take the necessary steps for its prevention. Those necessary steps today would entail common-sense ideological profiling: pay special attention to those adherents of ideologies bent on our destruction. The most powerful such ideology in the world today is Islam. Thus, putting two and two together, place restrictions on Muslims that would forestall the development of a major terrorist conspiracy.
    Isn’t educating one’s population about Islam more important now than sending more troops to Iraq or Afghanistan to prop up sharia-based governments? That may not conform to most people’s idea of “war,” but it matters far more how many people in Australia stop accepting the versions of Islam of apologists for Islam, Muslim and non-Muslim, with all the plausible Taqiyya and Tu-Quoque, than how many troops we have trying to bring democracy places where virtually no one wants it.
    All over the western world Muslims are getting away with murder – and the governments are doing nothing.
    The recent humiliation of the once-proud British navy illustrates how western governments are too scared to stand up to these thugs.
    Are the government going to do something about this or are Infidel Australians going to do it for them?
    Or are we to end up like the dhimmi Norwegians and Swedes?
    “We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so towards us.”
    Jens Orback, Minister for Democracy, Metropolitan Affairs, Integration and Gender Equality from the Swedish Social Democratic Party during a debate in Swedish radio.
    You stone your mothers
    Flog your sisters
    Mutilate your daughters
    Behind veils
    But I want to be your friend
    Norwegian singer Ã…ge Aleksandersen in his song “Æ vil vær din venn” (“I want to be your friend”) about his relationship with Muslims. No irony was intended in the lyrics.
    Although the EU warns against “Islamophobia,” those who live in the real world know that there has been an explosion of violent Infidelophobia in Western Europe staged by Muslim immigrants. This wave of violence especially targets Jews, but the attacks against Christians that are going on in the Middle East are increasingly spreading to Europe as well. In more and more cities across the continent, non-Muslims are being harassed, robbed, mugged, raped, stabbed and even killed by Muslims. Native Europeans are slowly becoming second-rate citizens in their own countries.
