We covered the Undercover Mosque stories here. Foehammer, Jihad Watch, LGF and many others ran the story. Youtube had those clips off and on, and the DVD’s are freely available in Islamic stores around the country with a PG rating, which once again proves the ineffectiveness of lame government institutions that are either unwilling or unable (or more likely incompetent) to do what they’re meant to do.

Excerpt: The films urge parents to make their children holy warriors and martyrs, and praises jihad as the pinnacle of Islam.
The radical sheik makes snorting noises on the films as he vilifies Jews as the “army of pigs”.
He blames a lack of courage for martyrdom on the battlefield for the “humiliation” of Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Guantanamo.

Pro-terrorism films banned within a fortnight
THE Federal Government hopes it will be able to ban pro-terrorism films within a fortnight, following the classification of a race hate DVD urging children to martyr themselves.
The film, which calls for the murder of infidels and describes Jews as “pigs”, received a PG rating from the Office of Film and Literature Classification, making it suitable to be bought and watched by children.
News of the classification brought swift condemnation from the Federal Opposition, the NSW Government and the Jewish community, as well as by Attorney-General Philip Ruddock.
The film is contained in a package of DVDs prepared by Australian-born Islamic cleric Sheik Feiz Mohammed, who is currently in exile in Lebanon, but reported to be still preaching jihad to his Australian followers by telephone.
His film calls for the murder of non-believers in Islam’s war on the west, News Limited reported today.
Mr Ruddock said he had instructed his officials to seek agreement from the states within two weeks to urgently change censorship laws so that hate films praising terrorists could be banned.
He said Sheik Feiz’s film “clearly advocates terrorism acts” but the classification authority suggested “the law did not give them sufficient capacity to refuse classification of this particular product”.
The current test of whether a publication promoted, incited or instructed people to perform a criminal act was inadequate and material which advocated terrorism should be refused classification, he added.
Mr Ruddock said the states had agreed to toughen laws for material that praised terrorism following passage of federal terrorism legislation in 2005, but that there should be no further delays in the states enacting the changes.
If the states and territories continued to resist, as they had done for more than a year, then he might be forced to go it alone and make the relevant change to the Commonwealth’s Classification Act, he said.
NSW Jewish Board of Deputies chief executive Vic Alhadeff said it was an “outrage” that such material could be allowed into the country.
*No, Vic, its an outrage that you ignored it for so long.
“One has to seriously question the guidelines which allow such offensive material to be allowed into our country and be distributed,” Mr Alhadeff said.
“For even one person to see this is one person too many because of the race hate that it preaches and the damage that can flow from that.”
Mr Alhadeff said the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies would meet soon to consider making a formal complaint.
Acting NSW Premier John Watkins called on Prime Minister John Howard to take action to ensure the film could not be seen by children.
“It’s disgusting and I advise any parent to ask their child not to go and see the film,” he said.
* Which is not only wrong, but it is equally stupid and ignorant if we don’t inform ourselves and our kids about what we are up against and pretend that not knowing or not raising awareness about it will make it go away.
Federal Opposition legal affairs spokesman Senator Joe Ludwig said the PG rating was “completely unacceptable”.
“Mr Ruddock must explain how a Jihad video by Sheik Feiz Mohammed was given the same rating as The Neverending Story and Back to the Future parts 1, 2 and 3,” Senator Ludwig said.
He said Mr Ruddock was one of only four people with authority to seek a review – the others being the publisher, the person who applied for classification and a person who has been seriously aggrieved by the material.
* The socialist (belatedly) flogs a dead horse and sucks up to the mufti at the next election, he should be ignored…
