We are not “alienating” jihadists. They are rejecting us

Andrew Bolt

Why did the Abbott Government bring out Abdul-Rehman Malik and Daisy Khan? Why did the ABC give them an easy ride? If this is the moderate voice, repeatedly turning the criticism on the West, what hope of integrating the radicals?

TONY JONES, PRESENTER: My two guests tonight were both invited by the Australian Government to speak at the Sydney summit on countering violent extremism.  Abdul-Rehman Malik is a London-based journalist and educator. He’s programs manager for Radical Middle Way, a group trying to encourage young Muslims to embrace social inclusion and reject violence… Now, Abdul-Rehman first to you, the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop today said the first question she’s always asked on this topic is what motivates young Australians to leave our safer and tolerant society as she put it to join a violent and unforgiving organisation thousands of miles away?…

ABDUL-REHMAN MALIK: … For some it’s exercising a sense of adventure. For others it’s a sense of returning back to an imagined homeland or an imagined utopia which they can’t find here.  But for many, it’s alienation from the societies that they live in; it’s economic, social and cultural marginalisation…

Well I think first we have to question whether this is a cult or not.  I think to call it a death cult, as the Australian Prime Minister does, is a complete misnomer and actually feeds in to IS propaganda…. The fact is that IS- Daesh absolutely a brutal force but it’s not an irrational force.  It has a political agenda. It has an agenda which emerges from an existing political context which is absolutely chaotic, linked right back to the invasion of Iraq, to the sectarian division, to political divisions that are- that have been in Syria and Iraq and in the Levant for decades, maybe even longer…

You know you talk about the barbarity of the beheadings and the brutality of the images that they’re shown. They will come back and you and say look at Abu Ghraib, look at Guantanamo, look at drone attacks that have destroyed families and destroyed villages.  Look at the invasion of Iraq that killed anywhere between half a million to a million innocent people… You’re talking about morals and ethics to kids who think there’s no morals and ethics in the world to begin with.  Now, that as much our problem as is as it is their problem. 

This is too much like the victimology on which the radicals feed. The West’s invasion of Iraq did not kill anywhee near that number of “innocent people”. The dead were in fact mostly the victims of jihadists and Sunni extremists. Nor is the slaughter of Shiites by Sunnis “linked right back to the invasion of Iraq”. It has been going on for centuries, and some of the worst occurred under Saddam Hussein. Nor is “marginalisation” the main driver of Islamist extremism in the West, when the recruits include university students, doctors and the children of doctors. “Marginalisation” is in many cases actually “rejectionism” – of, not by, the West.

Rejectionism is the problem, and its origins are in Islam and in the cultures from which so many jihadists or the families come. Why are we importing speakers who are only too keen to blame the West?

      1. And this link has an excellnent video during which the possiblity of this lunatic bitch creating her own “hate-crimes” is raised……

        This is much like a case in Canada of one “Richard Warman” who filed dozens of dozens of hate-crime complaints, with himself being the victim, with the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Warman won tens of thousands of dollars in awards from the CHRC……

        Its madness, absolute madness of a grand scale.


        Enjoy the video of this extremely sick woman being cornered and questioned.

  1. Perhaps you’d like to meet another treasonous, self-hating, Leftist/Liberal bitch.

    Meet Elin Krantz………a lover of diversity and a hater of her own culture and her own country, Sweden.

    Then she met a filthy little parasite from Ethiopia


    and here


    But of course……..the greater obscenity would be to call the man who butchered Elin a “feral nigger”………that would be a vicious hate-crime!!!!

    The fact is that Elin deserved everything she got and we….we as a society are getting everything we get by allowing our countries and our culture to be smeared with the filth of the third-world and inundated with Mankind’s lowest common denominator, virtual human garbage.
