* MuslimÂ spokesmanÂ threatens ‘seriousÂ consequences’ for all concerned
Another LARGE Islamic school proposed for a rural area in south-west Sydney is facing fierce opposition from residents just months after Camden residents waged a racially charged battle against a similar development in their area. (That’s why its called the Sydney Moonbat Herald. They still haven’t learned that Islam is not a race/ed)

A company called ASFA Limited has applied to Liverpool City Council to build an educational facility called Qaadiri College for 600 primary and high school students at Gurner Avenue in Austral.
But neighbours of the site are adamant a development of that scale will destroy their peaceful lifestyle. They insist their concerns have nothing to do with Islam and would oppose similar-sized projects if they were proposed by other faith groups.
* Newslink:Â THE discovery of “potentially dangerous” chemicals after a fire at a unit block in Sydney’s eastern suburbs has raised fears of a home-made bomb and forced the evacuation of residents.Â
But there are signs that known anti-immigration activists are keen to join in a campaign against it.
The online forum, www.australianidentity.net, which openly declares that “views, ideas and contributions that are hostile to [an Anglo-Celtic-European-white heritage] are not permitted” on it, received several postings about the proposal after the development application was lodged in April.
“Any chance of an APP [Australian Protectionist Party] campaign on the basis of traffic usage etc?” wrote Casapound.
“Yes, indeedy,” replied Darrinh, who is believed to be Darrin Hodges, the NSW chairman of the Australian Protectionist Party, who recently stood unsuccessfully as a candidate in the Sutherland Shire elections.
TheÂ HeraldÂ was yesterday unable to contact Mr Hodges, whose campaign material stated: “I will oppose mosques, sex-shops and any developments that undermine Australia’s traditional and family values.”
The deputy chairman of the Islamic Council of NSW, Ali Roude, said developments proposed by Muslims had historically been met with opposition. Â (seems to be related to the Islamo shill Nada Roude, who soiled herself occasionally by declaring jihad is ‘inner struggle’/ed)
“Based on recent responses from local residents to the proposed Camden school and other development applications for schools and Islamic centres throughout south-west Sydney, it would appear that the real concerns and opposition from locals has little to do with the merit of the project but more to do with general anti-Muslim sentiments,” Mr Roude said.
“This continuing trend we find very disturbing and has serious consequences for all concerned.”
* Likewise, muslim brother. Likewise…
Liverpool’s new Mayor, Wendy Waller, said the application would be assessed on its environmental merits.
Here’s aÂ constantlyÂ reappearing letter on blogs that discuss Islamic schools in the West. Well worth reading, it is by no means just a crackpot who makes this demand. It is much more so the general Muslim sentiment regarding education:
Muslim youths are angry, frustrated and extremist because they have been mis-educated and de-educated by the British schooling. Muslim children are confused because they are being educated in a wrong place at a wrong time in state schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers. They face lots of problems of growing up in two distinctive cultural traditions and value systems, which may come into conflict over issues such as the role of women in the society, and adherence to religious and cultural traditions. The conflicting demands made by home and schools on behaviour, loyalties and obligations can be a source of psychological conflict and tension in Muslim youngsters. There are also the issues of racial prejudice and discrimination to deal with, in education and employment. They have been victim of racism and bullying in all walks of life. According to DCSF, 56% of Pakistanis and 54% of Bangladeshi children has been victims of bullies. The first wave of Muslim migrants were happy to send their children to state schools, thinking their children would get a much better education. Than little by little, the overt and covert discrimination in the system turned them off. There are fifteen areas where Muslim parents find themselves offended by state schools.Â
The right to education in one’s own comfort zone is a fundamental and inalienable human right that should be available to all people irrespective of their ethnicity or religious background. Schools do not belong to state, they belong to parents. It is the parents’ choice to have faith schools for their children. Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. There is no place for a non-Muslim teacher or a child in a Muslim school. There are hundreds of state schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be designated as Muslim community schools. An ICM Poll of British Muslims showed that nearly half wanted their children to attend Muslim schools. There are only 143 Muslim schools. A state funded Muslim school in Birmingham has 220 pupils and more than 1000 applicants chasing just 60.Â
Majority of anti-Muslim stories are not about terrorism but about Muslim
culture–the hijab, Muslim schools, family life and religiosity. Muslims in the west ought to be recognised as a western community, not as an alien culture.
