Islamic State is a plot by Western countries, Victoria’s Al-Taqwa College principal tells students
If the principal of a 2,000 head school in Australia publicly sprouts the conspiracy theory that Israel and the West are behind the so-called Islamic State, what do we expect young Muslim to learn? Mr Omar Hallak is the principal of Victoria’s largest Islamic school, Al Taqua college and is no stranger to indoctrination of young Muslim minds:
“They are trained and equipped by them: [the] evidence is all the shiny new equipment,” he said. “We don’t believe Muslims are creating IS.”
Don’t forget the Australian tax payer is funding this and other Islamic schools with thousands of dollars per student each year. Past reports on Islamic schools in Australia have not been very kind; time and again uncovering a variety of schemes to funnel money from the schools to the background operators via over-priced leases and dubious consultancy agreements.
This is one of the reasons the Australian Liberty Alliance proposes a special accreditation process for Islamic organisation wishing to operate schools and places of worship. This accreditation would include the mandatory implementation of a comprehensive Charter of Conduct, inspired by the ‘Charter of Muslim Understanding’ drawn up by ex-Muslim and Islamic scholar Sam Solomon.

Mr Hallak said killing innocent people was not “the Islamic way”.
I guess we should ask Mr Hallak whether Muhammad, the profit of Islam, was Islamic. He and all of those who came after him did nothing but murder innocent people, 270 million of them. (SY)
“In the mosque, we talk to them many times. We show them evidence it’s not linked to Islam.”
They can’t lie straight in bed.
He said radicalisation was not an issue at the school because students were educated to be good Australian Muslims. He said the Truganina school, in Melbourne’s outer-west, appealed to parents because of its strong focus on discipline.
That’s why so many young Mustards head to the Islamic state for the jihad, right? (SY)
“We have not had any problems here,” he said. “We are Australian Muslims and have to follow Australian law.”
No. There is no such thing as an “Australian Muslim”. Muslims are not in Australia to become Australians, they are in Australia to make us Islamic. And Muslims do not follow Australian law, they follow the shari’a.
There are 1950 students enrolled at Al-Taqwa College this year, making it the largest Islamic school in the state. Students at the P-12 coeducational school are predominantly Sunni.
Has this school ever been investigated for the fraudulent syphoning off of funds for the jihad? Many other schools have embezzled tens of millions….
Some Victorian schools are grappling with the threat of radicalisation. The Education Department has appointed an adviser to promote social cohesion in schools following the death of 18-year-old Numan Haider, who was shot dead last year after stabbing two counter-terrorism police officers in Endeavour Hills. It has also strengthened its ties to Victoria Police, with nominated staff in regional offices throughout the state working with police to provide advice and support to schools. Earlier in March, former Craigieburn Secondary College teenager Jake Bilardi was believed to have died in an IS suicide bombing in Iraq.
We need policing, not Muslim “advisors”, who are agents of Islam.
Islamic Council of Victoria spokesman Kuranda Seyit, who is also a teacher, said he did not support Mr Hallak’s comments.
“The important thing here is to focus on the students and the young people related to this, to give them as much support as possible and to really educate them about the true and positive message of Islam and how it is important to manage a peaceful and non-violent approach.”
Right. The “true and positive message of Islam”, where would that come from?
Mr Seyit said the principal’s comments might “muddy” this message.
“Everyone has a right to have their own theories and beliefs but I don’t think we should be confusing young people.
“In Australia we are very protective of our harmony and the strong relationships we have nurtured, and it’s very important we don’t jeopardise those relationships.”
Who is “we”, Mr Seyit?
Mr Seyit is developing an anti-radicalisation program for a Victorian school, which he hopes is expanded if successful.
I get it. Seyit is paid by the kafirs to engage in ‘interfaith’ and kumbaya acrobatics to stop Muslims from murdering us not today, but tomorrow?
The pilot program is direct response to the rise of IS and the uprising in Syria and will teach students about Islam’s “middle way”. Mr Seyit said the program was overdue and would address topics including jihad, suicide bombing and fighting overseas.
Our society suffers from collective insanity. That taxpayers are forced to perpetuate and institutionalise it is infuriating.
In February, The Age revealed that the Australian Principals Federation was receiving frequent inquiries from principals who were struggling to deal with the radicalised behaviour of students and parents.
So? And who and what radicalises them?
One Melbourne principal told The Age two children at their government primary school had parents who were fighting for IS in Syria.
