* Compare this with how Muhammedans treat Christians or other ‘unbelievers’ in Islamic countries:
Mosque in Adelaide: The Adelaide mosque was built in 1888, and is the oldest mosque in Australia. Its original four minarets were added in 1903. Muslims from as far away as Broken Hill and Kalgoorlie gathered at least once a year at the Adelaide mosque, usually for the Fast of Ramadan. In 1890 it was reported that 80 Afghans were present to observe this important festival. (Adelaide observer, 2 August 1890, p. 29)
Stop the jiziyah!
This is bitterly ironic in light of the fact that the repair of old houses of worship is specifically forbidden to the dhimmis who live under Islamic law. If Australia ever becomes Islamic, in other words, you will not see this same generosity being extended to churches and synagogues. “Council grant for mosque work,” from Australia’s ABC News, June 16 (thanks to DW):
Australia’s oldest mosque is getting a $65,000 grant from Adelaide City Council to fund the repairs to one of its minarets.
The mosque in Gilbert Street in the city was built in the late 1880s, with minarets added in 1903.
Lord Mayor Michael Harbison says it is the first time the Council has funded refurbishment work on a mosque.
“This money allocated will restore the fourth minaret of the mosque to its former glory and give us what really is a beautiful building, very important to the Islamic community in Adelaide, but [also] a great tourist attraction,” he said.
“[Not only] Adelaide’s mosque but the oldest mosque in Australia.”
*Â Compare this suicidal stupidity with the ongoing destruction of churches in Turkey and other Islamic countries
*Â The remnants of an Armenian church in Islamic Turkey. Armenians, Greeks and other ‘unbelievers’ have been annihilated.

* Now, with Australia’s new ‘caring’ socialist government firmly in power, you just can’t keep the swine from putting their snouts in the trough:
A FEMALE anti-war body and Christian and Muslim groups will share in $2 million in grants to be announced today.
* Saggy tits brigades protest against war in Berkeley (perhaps they should also get a few grants….
Twenty-two non-government organisations will receive up to $100,000 each from the Federal Government to promote female leadership and advocacy.
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, dedicated to helping abolish the causes and legitimisation of war, will receive $100,000.
Funds were sought to help develop a national action plan for Australian non-government organisations in relation to the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security.
The resolution addresses the unique impact of armed conflict on women, the undervalued contribution women make to peacekeeping and the equal participation of women as “active agents in peace and security”.
The Muslim Women’s National Network Australia will use its $99,991 to help Australian Muslim women develop self-esteem and overcome discrimination.
The Young Women’s Christian Association will also receive grants, one of which is aimed at helping disadvantaged immigrant and refugee women and girls.
