It was recently revealed that Muslims have been regularly using Alma Road Neighbourhood House for Friday prayers. Residents are justifiably worried, as it is well documented that Friday prayers regularly precede violence against infidels.
But this isn’t the only problem. Muslims must perform ablutions - including foot washing - before prayers. This could present a public health concern if they are washing in shared facilities (they are using the disabled washroom!) and then walking barefoot to the main room. Of course, the Muslims would immediately answer: "provide us with separate washrooms", to which the answer should be "why waste ratepayers’ money?" But given the lunacy of some councillors, they might well reply "yes Masters, anything you want."
It is good to see that the MSM and Labor Government are supporting the idea of higher birth rate among Australian citizens.
It is also good to know that they realize the importance of a healthy, growing and YOUNG population.
The latest wave of Muslim migrants are getting jobs and starting successful businesses.
They are buying houses, often using Islamic credit, and they are having big families. And all of this explains why shopping centres and neighbourhoods are being rapidly rebuilt as this ethnic baby boom drives growth.
How to turn normal human beings into murderous and hateful psychopaths who blindly obey their totalitarian systems and its authorities suppressing and killing innocent people? In short: How to create a terrorist?
Violent and murderous political, ethnic and religious regimes have used the same effective methods throughout history all over the world. The procedure consists of two simple steps that are repeated again and again:
Elizabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff , an Austrian citizen was convicted on the 15th of February in an Austrian court of ‘denigrating the teachings of a legally recognised religion’ namely Islam. Ms Sabaditsch-Wolff was charged because she dared to accurately quote the Koran, hadith and sharia law to others in a series of talks. However, the charge that gained the conviction was added by the judge, Bettina Neubauer, during the case which in my view brings into question the integrity and agenda of the judge. A journalist from the Austrian magazine NEWS.at, filed the original police report.
Sergio Redegalli, known and ‘loved’ by all here at AIM, as just ‘plain’ Sergio, has altered his very famous “Say no to burqas” mural, to reflect the current situation in Marrickville, in regards to their ill-informed BDS action against the State of Israel and her nomination for election in the State Seat of Marrickville.
Sergio’s latest masterpiece… a tribute to Queen Fiona
As soon as Senator Cory Bernadi made his comment about Islam, saying that Islam is the problem not Muslims, another Liberal showed he misunderstood the essence of Bernadi’s comment. Shadow attorney-general George Brandis has joined a pack condemnation of those preaching division against Muslims. (reference)
George Brandis evidently did not listen to Bernadi’s comment for in it he clearly distinguished between Muslims and the essence of the real problem – which is Islam. That is Brandis’ first mistake. Of course there are moderate Muslims, but Islam itself is discriminatory and condemnatory. His second mistake is more serious – for Brandis is supporting here the very kind of thing he supposedly stands against.
(An Essay from Michael Mannheimer, Germany, March 23, 2010 / Translation: Anders Denken)
The plainly crucial question: Is Islam peaceful or dangerous?
In spite of the fact that almost all international terror acts of the last decade have been carried out by Muslims, Islamic scholars insist that Islam is a “religion of peace.” As the underpinning for their thesis, they cite Quran verses somewhate like Sura 5 verse 32, according to which the one who “kills a person,” shall be “like one who has murdered the whole of mankind“ (Islamic clerics, however, hide from their faithful followers that in this verse, Muhammad cited commandments from the Jews’ Talmud [Sanhedrin 4:1, 22a]). Critics of Islam confront Muslims about this with Suras that demand the opposite: namely the murder of infidels. Thus in Sura 47 verse 4, it says somewhat like: “And if you meet the infidels, then off with their head until you have spread a massacre among them.”
Australia by and large is a civilised country, with the rule of law ensuring freedom and equality for all. Yes, I know we have disadvantaged and marginalized people. Yes, we also have binge drinking and anti-social behaviour, but hey, no society is a rose garden.
Recently though, our life-affirming, creative civilization has come under threat from the promotion of Islam, not only by Muslims, but by many in our society, often in insidious ways.
In recent days German president Angela Merkel, British PM David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have made comments on the fact that multiculturalism has been a failure. Even ex PM John Howard has added his views as the Spectator recently noted:
…the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, has joined the chorus. The other day he said, "My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure." The "it" was multiculturalism, and he was on French national television.
The Monthly is a quality Australian magazine featuring some of our top thinkers and commentators, so it’s always instructive to peruse its learned articles. For instance, the magazine published a literary essay which was short listed for the 2010 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Essay Advancing Public Debate – Patriot Acts, by Waleed Aly - which SBS’s Jacquie Riddell pronounced “BEST Number 1”:
This article Patriot Acts by Waleed Aly and published in The Monthly in June was one of the most inspiring reads this year. Waleed, who is an Australian academic, rock musician and lawyer, beautifully contrasts the laconic nature of our brand of multiculturalism, with the patriotic United States version of multiculturalism.
So, as you can see, this magazine punches above its weight on the literary scene.
‘Doctor’s wives’, luvvies, latte sippers, lefties and loonies all love a good anti-Israel divestment. It’s such a popular sport that even councils get involved, boldly plodding where angels should fear to tread.
AIM proudly supports Israel. We will never support any attempt at financial jihad against her.
Many Christians have bemoaned the damning silence from their leaders in regards to islam and all forms of islamisation but there has been a breakthrough that might signal a weather change in all ‘official’ response to islam in the U.K. Hopefully, it will spread to Australia.
Vitasta ambles through the Kashmir valley. The hills around and the natural forests comprising deodar and pine trees present a pleasing sight to residents and visitors coming to the Kashmir valley from far and near. Of course, Vitasta is now renamed Jhelum and the demography too had undergone many changes many times.
Kalhan , the great Sanskrit poet sat in the thickly wooded picturesque Kashmir valley many thousand years ago and wrote Rajtarangini describing the important kings and queens, men and women who had contributed to the rich cultural heritage of the valley, hills and dales. Even the invaders from Central Asia who showed the prowess of their arms in the culturally rich valley were in turn influenced by the Kashmiriat of the pre-Islamic era. The history of Kashmir bears out that the Shiva temples and the Shaiv heritage was flowing in the veins of an average Kashmiri as smoothly as the Jhelum river through numerous bends, twists and turns without losing her majestic gait sans a sense of hurry.
If you happen to live in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda East, you’re in for a surprise. Sharia is steadily infiltrating the area, as Alma Road Community House is now a venue for Friday Islamic prayers.
Victoria is famous for its Neighbourhood (Community) Houses and Learning Centres, which are ‘local organisations that provide social, educational and recreational activities for their communities in a welcoming supportive environment’, allowing ‘opportunities for people’s participation and learning’ (reference)
Islamism, Islamic Extremism, Fundamental Islamists, Radicalised Muslims, Mujahedin, Jihadists – or just Islam? When will the time come to end the word games and become pro-active on Islam and Muslim terrorists, their power base, sympathisers and facilitators?
How real must the threat be before Australians stop engaging in self-flagellation, submissive apologetics and moral relativity – how bad must it get before we become serious about stopping the Islamisation of our society?
This post is to let our readers and supporters know that recently there was a serious Islamist attempt to close our operations.
Do not get me wrong - there are hundreds of daily hacking attempts to close us down permanently but these clumsy attempts are nothing but an inconvenience, a nuisance.
We can deal with it and the most "dramatic" product of such attempts resulted in a 2 day downtime of our site (big deal).
It is now well known that Allah has given a clean chit to the Muslims around the world to tell lies, called “taqiyya” or holy deception, for the benefit of Islam or glorifying Islam. So, the President Barack Obama, while addressing a gathering at the Cairo University, on June 5, 2009, said,
"As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam. It was Islam at places like Al-Azhar that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's renaissance and enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities...
"I love Mubarak", said a young man in his thirtees who had just walked into the place of action in Cairo, Tahrir Square or Liberation Square where the battle for Freedom from Oppression is being fought.
"I hate Mubarak", so shouted another young man in his late twenties who had left his home and hearth in a nearby town to be a part of the scene of a lifetime at the Tahrir Square. He and his family had suffered a lot as they could not exercise the right to freedom of speech in their weekly paper. As the freedom fighter spoke, came a hurling rock from the pro-Mubarak group and hit the freedom fighter in the head. With blood streaming down his face, he raised his voice many decibels and shouted: Down with Hosni Mubarak". His friends gathered around him and applied the first-aid bandage. An elderly man came in between to separate the two men and said that Egyptians must not engage in a bloody battle.
Cynicism of the Islamists to promote barbaric “Sharia-based Islam” in the west is going on uninterrupted due to the utter ignorance of the westerners about Islamic ideology in general, democratic convenience, and also by the “politically correct nonsense” spewed by many western politicians by their selfishness and forceful ignorance about the inherent danger of Islamic Sharia.
Many hypocritical western residing Islamists are trying relentlessly to soft-sell Islam through their speeches and write-ups and so called “interfaith nonsense” only to fool the westerners. All these Islamists are portraying Islam being compatible with western values. Using cynicism and soothsaying techniques, they are trying hard to convince the westerners that Islam is democratic, Islam is tolerant of other faiths, Islam encourages the pursuit of religious freedom, etc. They conveniently ignore/hide the fascism in Islam that originated from the primary (Quran) and secondary (Hadith) texts in the form of Sharia (Islamic law).
Increasingly we are confronted by Halal food products whether it is in the butcher or more likely at the Supermarket or even at fast food outlets like Subway, KFC and Nandos. Even some restaurants are openly advertising Halal food. Many people believe that Halal means that the food is fresher and hormone free, and even has been blessed so it must be a good choice. Indeed most people understand that Halal is the ritually prepared food for Islam.
But what really is the background to the Halal concept?
In 1996 there were 201,000 Muslims in Australian . Today there are 399,000. In 2030 there will be 714,000 . Over the period 1996-2030 the Muslim population of Australia will have more than tripled for an annual growth rate of 3.8%. No other major religion has as high a growth rate.
Why is the Muslim component of Australia’s population growing so fast? There is a very high birthrate amongst Muslim women. Many of our migrants are Muslims. Most of the refugees and asylum seekers arriving on our shores are Muslims.

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.
Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.
Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.
The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.
The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.
How often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?
And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. 
Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. 
Why are you a Muslim?
Musli ms in general love to hear the above question because it has a simple and readymade answer in their minds besides it gives them the opp or t u nity to propagate their religion and talk proudly about Islam.
At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.
Why do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA) which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were two Arab, pagan tribes.
Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.
Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
Did Prophet Muhammad order Killing Surrendered Jews of Banu Quraiza and Khaybar? A historical Analysis!
In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.
A great tragedy of the Islamic control of our universities and political correctness plus the fear of extreme violence if anyone dares question the roots and claims of Islam is ...that nobody dares question the roots and claims of Islam!!! I want to stimulate interest and offer this summary of information on Mecca from (LINK) which discusses some problems with Muslim claims in a comparison of evidence supporting Islam/Christianity.
There is a very strongly entrenched view among majority of Westerners today that the three main monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam share one common God and therefore despite the obvious differences, the core foundation of these three religions is the same.
