Muslim “De-radicalisation Expert” To Rule Over Us

Election 2016: Labor’s Anne Aly claims victory in Cowan after vote count correction
By Nicolas Perpitch/ABC

Anne Aly Cowan Labor candidate.

Labor’s Anne Aly has claimed victory in the Perth-based seat of Cowan, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to the House of Representatives.

Dr Aly, an anti-terrorism and de-radicalisation expert, also believed the Liberal campaign to paint her as soft on terrorism backfired and did not lose her any votes.

Anne Aly is a Mohammedan agitprop. She is an agent of Islam. She is not, and never will be, an “anti-terrorism and de-radicalisation expert”. She will not act against Islamic terrorism or “de-radicalise” any jihadist. The whole idea is based on fraud and deception. It is based on false premises and mind boggling naiveté.

Incumbent Liberal MP Luke Simpkins has not conceded defeat, with the Liberal Party stating several thousand votes remained to be counted and it would wait to see how they fell.

But WA Labor says it has won the marginal West Australian seat.

The declaration came after the Australian Electoral Commission confirmed it had mistakenly placed about 200 Greens votes in Mr Simpkins’ pile in the northern booth of Tapping.

After preferences were allocated, Dr Aly received 160 of the votes pushing her lead against Mr Simpkins out to 787.

Labor calculated there was no way he could now close the gap, even though almost 10,000 mostly absentee votes remain to be tallied.

‘Diverse parliament in trying times a positive’

Dr Aly said she was humbled and looked forward to becoming a strong and fair voice in parliament for the Cowan community.

She said she recognised the significance of becoming the first Muslim woman in the Lower House of federal parliament.

“I think having a diverse parliament in these very trying times is an absolute positive and bodes well for the future of Australia,” Dr Aly told reporters.

Mohammedan ‘diversity’ is legendary. (sarc/off)

During the campaign, Liberal frontbenchers criticised Dr Aly’s judgement, claiming she had provided support to radical Islamic preacher Junaid Thorne during his trial for flying with a false identity.

She countered it was a smear campaign and the de-radicalisation program she had suggested for Thorne was funded by the Coalition government.

Dr Aly said she did not think the criticism had played a huge role in the Cowan result.

“I do believe it backfired, whether or not it actually helped, I think that’s a long short to call, that’s a difficult call to make,” she said.

“But I do believe it did backfire. But it certainly didn’t lose me any votes.”

Mr Simpkins, who has held the seat since 2007, declined to comment.

  1. strong and fair voice in parliament?

    deradicalisation expert?

    Anne Aly’s statements are designed to comfort and reassure non-Muslims. And they no doubt do just that, unless the non-Muslims in question are knowledgeable enough about Islam to see through them……

    A few days ago I wrote some commentary here at Jihad Watch on an article about a Muslim professor in Australia, Anne Aly. I showed with quotes from the Qur’an and other Islamic sources that the article was filled with half-truths, distortions, and outright falsehoods about Islam. Apparently, someone posted her email address in the comments field here, and now there is an article in The West Australian about how poor Professor Aly has received…hate mail….

    1. Thanks for the links which deserve to be published in full:

      Australia: Muslim university researcher says there’s nothing Islamic about beheading, women have equal rights in Islam
      AUGUST 26, 2014 2:06 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER

      Anne Aly’s statements are designed to comfort and reassure non-Muslims. And they no doubt do just that, unless the non-Muslims in question are knowledgeable enough about Islam to see through them. The assertion in the article’s headline, that “there is nothing Islamic about a beheading,” doesn’t appear in the article, but in any case it is another deception: beheading is mandated in the Quran. “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)

      “There is nothing Islamic about a beheading: Muslims v extremists,” by Aleisha Orr, WA Today, August 20, 2014:

      Curtin University research fellow Anne Aly says there are a lot of misconceptions about people who follow Islam.

      She said that in reality, the wide majority of Muslims did not support the extreme actions of groups such as Hamas, ISIS or the Taliban.

      When I type “all Muslims are…” into Google on my smartphone, the first suggestion I get is “all Muslims are terrorists”. Another is “all Muslims are extremists”.

      Several views have been aired across talkback radio since a controversial speech from a Muslim activist that had been planned in Perth was publicised and then cancelled.

      Uthman Badar had been invited to speak at the university by a student group but when his controversial background was highlighted in the media, the invite was withdrawn.

      Badar sparked outrage in Sydney recently when he planned to give a talk at an arts festival titled “Honour Killings are Justified”.

      Dr Aly says just as the actions of Christians who carry out targeted attacks on abortion clinics did not represent most Christian views, terrorist actions carried out by extreme Muslims and associated views do not represent the beliefs or wishes of most Muslims.

      Back on my mobile phone, an anti-mosque Facebook page provides me with a number of statements that I put to Dr Aly as questions.

      Do all Muslims…

      These questions are misleadingly framed. Of course all Muslims don’t support Hamas or promote the non-acceptance of religions other than Islam, etc. All Muslims can’t be said to do anything beyond believe that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet. Orr should have asked Aly whether there was anything in Islamic texts and teachings that supported gender inequality, Islamic supremacism, etc., and what Muslims like her who ostensibly rejected such things were doing to reform the general Muslim understanding of those texts and teachings.

      Support Hamas? “No”

      Promote the non-acceptance of religions other than Islam? “No”

      “And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” — Qur’an 3:85

      Believe that men and women are not equal? “No”

      “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them” — Qur’an 4:34

      “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” — Qur’an 2:282

      “If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” — Qur’an 4:3

      Chant Hitler verses? “No”

      Want Sharia law implemented worldwide? “No”

      Believe in female genital mutilation? “No”

      “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

      Support the Taliban? “No”

      Support genocide in Sudan? “No”

      Believe women have to cover their bodies from head to toe? “No”

      Promote and accept marriage between young girls and men? “No”

      Dr Aly pointed out that most of the things I asked about were cultural practices specific to different parts of the world, not the Islamic religion.

      “Female genital mutilation is not a Muslim practice, it actually pre-dates Islam,” she said.

      See above.

      Dr Aly said the questions also brought up the issue of interpretation.

      Muslims are people who believe in the five pillars of Islam; that there is one God and that Mohammad was his prophet, that they should go to Hajj at least once in their lifetime, in giving alms by contributing to charity or helping the poor, pray five times a day and fasting at Ramadan.

      So if Muslims do not promote the non-acceptance of religions, how come one of their main principles is believing that there is only one God? Dr Aly said Islamic people believe that their God is the same God as the God of other religions.

      “Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam.” — Qur’an 3:19

      She said the Koran recognised men and women as equals, “but remember some societies where Islam is practiced in are also ancient societies, that haven’t recognised women’s rights”

      See above. Also note the anomaly: Islamic law covers every aspect of life, every detail of human behavior, and yet Islamic apologists would have us believe that in the societies where it has existed for the longest time and has taken the deepest roots are rife with cultural practices that have nothing to do with Islam and actually contradict Islamic law.

      Dr Aly pointed to the rule in Saudi Arabia, that women should not drive, as one of these cultural practices that was seen mistakenly by many as being part of Islam but did not exist in other mostly Islamic countries.

      Islamic law forbids women to leave the house without permission of her male guardian — husband or brother or father. The ban on driving is extrapolated from that.

      She said 95 per cent of Muslims were what she would describe as “moderate”.

      Dr Aly said 0.01 per cent were “extremists” who took their belief of the religion to a radical scale – where they would be willing to break the law and resort to violence in the name of their religion.

      If there are a billion Muslims, that’s 10 million people who are “willing to break the law and resort to violence in the name of their religion.” That’s an awful lot of jihad terrorists.

      “They believe is the spread of Sharia law and Islamic law through violence,” Dr Aly said.

      In addition to this she said the remainder were likely to support the spread of Islam but through peaceful means.

      Including, presumably, its laws denying basic rights to women and non-Muslims.

      Dr Aly described Sharia Law as “guidelines for life” which can and do exist in some places, alongside regular law enforcement processes.

      These guidelines are a way of life to live by which cover things like, rules around how divorce can take place, such as a husband must ask for a divorce three times and it cannot be asked for in anger.

      In terms of covering women’s bodies, she said that this came from the Koran, which talks about women being modest.

      “The idea is that you cover your modesty but what’s interpreted as modesty is different, some cover their hair with a hijab, some extend that to their face and hands,” Dr Aly said.

      “Others have the more modern look and wear tight clothes and tight jeans and wear a scarf over their head,” she said.

      “Some think modesty is more about your demeanour and that’s how I interpret it.

      “I don’t wear it,” she said (Dr Aly is a Muslim).

      She said she has often been told that she “can’t be a Muslim”.

      “They say: ‘you can’t be a Muslim, you don’t believe in subjugation’ or ‘if you were a Muslim you would wear a head scarf’” which she described as a narrow minded way of thinking.

      Dr Aly said extremists exploited their connection to Islam.

      “There are a minority of Muslims who turn it around and say it [certain practices such as those listed previously] is not culture, it’s religion, and that shows a lack of comprehension and a misinformed position about Islam,” she said.

      “They are using religion to try to make them seem credible.

      “Islam does not have a central authority like a Pope, we have many different schools of thought and debate is encouraged in Islam.”

      We constantly hear this. Yet we never, ever see moderate Muslims explaining how the jihadists are wrong on Qur’anic and Islamic grounds, and working to convince them of their error. They tell credulous non-Muslims, but say nothing to their fellow Muslims.

      She said nearly all Muslims would have been “absolutely disgusted” by the photograph of a young boy, believed to be the son of Sydney jihadist Khaled Sharrouf, holding up the head of a slain Syrian soldier that made headlines last week.

      “Some of the Muslim leaders came out and spoke about it and said he’s a mad man, that is incomprehensible whatever your background,” Dr Aly said.

      Liberal MP Liz Behjat has since called on all Muslims within Western Australian to actively speak out against those that support extremism in any form.

      “My colleagues and I who regularly meet with and attend functions organised by the various Islamic groups here in Western Australia know full well that none of these people ascribe to the radicalism that is often highlighted in the media as portraying the way that all Muslims feel, but we do not hear their leaders speaking out in condemning these jihadists and radical Islamists, and the vile speeches that they make,” she said.

      “I am now speaking directly to all the Muslims from so many ethnic backgrounds and urging you to make your peaceful voices heard to ensure that as true Australians you all come together and speak with one voice to condemn those who would seek to harm our way of life and do harm in our communities.”

      Australia: Muslim prof claims she got “hate mail” after her deceptions exposed

      AnneAlyA few days ago I wrote some commentary here at Jihad Watch on an article about a Muslim professor in Australia, Anne Aly. I showed with quotes from the Qur’an and other Islamic sources that the article was filled with half-truths, distortions, and outright falsehoods about Islam. Apparently someone posted her email address in the comments field here, and now there is an article in The West Australian about how poor Professor Aly has received…hate mail.

      She got hate mail? And this is a news story? If receiving hate mail is newsworthy, I should be on the front page of the New York Times every day. Here’s one I got on the same day I wrote the post about Aly:

      hey filthy animal. today we won in gaza thanks to god. we support god so he supports us back. we resist, unlike the coward zionist jews. they are affraid of little rockets. as we celebrate in the streets of gaza and in the middleast netenyahu the coward refused to meet the media, he must feel anger,shame and deceit. like u felt after ur defeats in afganistan and iraq. when u left those 2 countries with ur head between ur legs

      Alert the media! If getting hate mail is news, all the major networks will be writing feature stories about me. If getting hate mail is news, watch for me on Jon Stewart and Bill Maher this week. At this link is just a sampling of the hate mail I receive on a regular basis.

      But of course, getting hate mail is not news, unless you’re part of a protected group that the media is determined to present in a favorable light no matter what. The mainstream media really, really wishes that Aly’s deceptions and distortions about Islam were true, and so is determined to run interference for her and others like her. The usual suspects were thrilled, of course: Hamas-linked CAIR tweeted gleefully that Aly had received hate mail after her email address appeared on “Islamophpobe [sic] Robert Spencer’s blog,” and I’m told that Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding attack dog and stalker Nathan Lean, who has repeatedly published what he thinks is my home address and whereabouts in a naked attempt to menace me physically or intimidate me into silence, tweeted about it also. It’s laughably ironic that a gutter thug and bottom feeder like Lean would try to claim the high ground, and shows the cynicism of the entire effort to demonize and smear foes of jihad terror.

      Anyway, here’s the thing: no one should have sent Aly any hate mail. I do not condone that at all. Whenever I’ve published anyone’s email address and called for people to write, I have emphasized that the emails should be courteous and polite. Hate mail only serves the spurious campaign of Islamic supremacists and their Leftist enablers to portray any opposition to jihad terror as a victimization of the Muslim community: they claim that Muslims are being unfairly victimized by counter-terror efforts, in an attempt to end those counter-terror efforts and enable jihad terror to advance unopposed. Anyone who wrote to Aly should have focused upon the falsehoods she was propagating, and not included any personal insults or, indeed, anything personal at all.

      It’s noteworthy also that this article in The West Australian doesn’t contain any quotations of the alleged hate mail Aly received. The implication is that it was all so ugly, so beastly, as to preclude reproduction of even the slightest except. But this omission raises the possibility that the “hate mail” was really just calling her on her false statements. The focus on “hate mail” in this article frees Aly from having to respond to the substantive problems I pointed out about her claims about Islam — it’s all just “hate mail” from an “anti-Islamic hate group” that is, moreover, “right-wing.”

      This is typical of Islamic supremacists and Leftists. No discussion. No debate. Not even any acknowledgement of the substantive issues. Just demonization of the opposition.

      If you want to write to Anne Aly now, or to Grant Taylor, be polite. Be courteous. Be respectful. Ask them nicely to respond to what I wrote here about how what Aly was saying about Islam was false. Ask them sweetly why some hate mail is newsworthy, and some isn’t — and if it is really responsible for a mainstream media reporter to allow only one point of view ever to have a hearing.

      In the meantime, here is yet another example of how the mainstream media aids and abets the propagation of falsehoods about Islam that foster complacency about the jihad threat, and energetically furthers the smear campaign against foes of jihad terror.

      “Muslim academic draws hate fire,” by Grant Taylor, The West Australian, September 1, 2014:

      As a proud and outspoken Muslim, Anne Aly has also become a target for anti-Islamic hate groups.

      The Curtin University lecturer – who chooses not to wear a hijab and denounces Muslim extremists – has been bombarded with hate mail after a recent interview in which she defended Islam as a religion of peace.

      Her quotes were republished on a right-wing website called Jihad Watch, along with her work email address.

      “I was just really speaking out against some of the false assumptions about my religion,” Dr Aly said. “But what they (the hate groups) really want is for me to denounce my religion.

      “By saying that Islam is not about terrorism and Islam is not about beheadings or female genital mutilation, they can’t cope with that because it shatters the basis for their arguments.”

      Dr Aly said some of the messages she had received had been unnerving, while others had sought to “educate” her about her own religion.

      “It is upsetting and, yeah, it is worrying, but in some ways I get where they are coming from because a lot of these people just assume what they see on the news is typical of all Muslims,” she said.

  2. Yes. Just what Australia needs: the diversity of Islam.

    She is a fraud and a taqqiya merchant.
