In an article in the Whittlesea Leader (5/10/10) about the Muslim school proposed for Mernda, the principal of Al Siraat, a Muslim school at Epping claimed the only difference between a Muslim school and other schools is that Muslim schools teach Arabic, Islamic studies and Koran reading.
But teaching Islam and the Koran makes Islamic schools totally different to ALL other schools because the Koran, hadith, sira and sharia which must be taught to understand Islam and its ceremonies and day-today practices, is filled with attitudes, acts and laws that are totally alien and contrary to our values and laws and which threaten the lives and freedoms of others and teach treason to our government. The article was titled ‘All about learning’ and we should be very concerned regarding the Islamic attitudes and practices pushed onto impressionable children in Islamic schools. I summarise some of these in two articles – Part 1 examines the abuse of females and Islam’s gender apartheid and part 2, Islam’s racial and religious hatred, violence and totalitarianism.
“To know a person's religion we need not listen to his profession of faith but must find his brand of intolerance”.
In recent years, the Indian Muslims have started talking about Hindu terrorism as if all the problems in Kashmir and elsewhere in India are mostly due to the Hindu intolerance towards Muslims. They have successfully fooled few third rated thinkers with their half truths and some politicians at times like to promote Muslim’s views of Hindu terrorism. Because of this, in India, recently a new term is coined – the ‘Saffron terror’, which is allegedly inspired by Hindu fundamentalism. Since Saffron terror is relatively a newer issue, the present author wants to discuss a bit about the origin and the significance of the Saffron and how much link does it have with terrorism.
The ancient India, as historians recorded, was a self-contained world. The sacred soil of this holy land was not only a land of spirituality, philosophy and self-realization but also a land of peace, culture, music, dance and literature for thousands of years till the time an army of ‘half humanized half ape’ Bedouin barbarians attacked this holy land with sword in one hand and a demonic book ‘Qur’an’ in other hand. This ancient nation is the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.
Saffron is the only color that can symbolize all aspects of Hinduism and other Indian religions. It is the color of ‘Agni’ or fire, which symbolizes the Supreme Being. Fire worship had its origin in the Vedic age. The saffron color, also auspicious to the Sikhs, the Buddhists and the Jains, seems to have obtained religious significance much before these religions came into being. During olden days, when sages moved from one ashram (a religious hermitage) to another, it was customary to carry the fire along. But it was inconvenient to carry a burning substance over long distances. This had given rise to the symbol of a saffron flag, a symbol for flames. Triangular and often forked saffron flags are seen fluttering atop most Sikh and Hindu temples. While Sikhs regard it as a militant color, Buddhist monks and Hindu saints wear robes of this color as a mark of renunciation of material life. Saffron is the symbol of united India.
I've written a letter to Warren Entsch MP re: Ed Husic, Shariah law and Team B II.

RE: Mr Ed Husic MP, Shariah Law and the Team B II report,’Shariah, the threat to America’.
The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers. Ayn Rand
Dear Warren Entsch, MP
As has been noted, Mr E Husic MP was sworn into Federal Parliament with a Koran, not on the Holy Bible on which our Judeo/Christian nation and Western Civilization was founded, despite our religions being abro-gated by Shariah law .

Australians love their dogs and regard them as part of the family. Walking our dog is part of life for many, and the death of a beloved pet will leave us grief stricken, as Lifeline affirmed recently:
Lifeline Australia has acknowledged the crisis many people endure at the loss of a pet and has appointed veterinarian Katrina Warren as an ambassador to promote Lifeline's role for people grieving over the loss of an animal. Dr Warren said there had been a huge gap in society's understanding of pet loss. ''Our society often does not validate or understand the role pets play in so many of our lives.''
Mosque at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst:
The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), commonly known simply as Sandhurst, at nearly 50 Km south west of London, is the British Army officer initial training centre. The Academy is the British Army equivalent of the Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth, Royal Air Force College Cranwell and the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines.
The Academy's stated aim is to be "the national centre of excellence for leadership". All British Army officers, including late entry officers who were previously Warrant Officers, as well as many from elsewhere in the world, are trained at Sandhurst. Nearly 10 percent of British cadets are female and nearly 10 percent of all cadets come from overseas.
Recently I visited Italy and was able to visit many places of historic and spiritual significance there in particular the churches, a synagogue and many other places. Many churches have frescoes, painting and sculptures of immense value and it is not uncommon to run across a Bernini sculpture, a Michaelangelo, Raphael or Giotto by chance as one wanders through.
The church of Saint Ignatius Loyola in Rome has a St Pius V chapel, in which there is a large painting depicting a triumphant Pope holding up a Cross over the defeated Turks [referring to Lepanto]. Also at a church called Santa Maria della Vittoria, the very name refers to the victory of the west against the Muslim Ottoman invaders in 1571 and was given its name by Pope Pius V who had asked all to pray with him while the battle was engaged.
He gave this church in the Via Settembre XX the additional name of the church of Our Lady of the Rosary attributing the victory to the prayer of the rosary. Italy does not lack for clear reference to the victory over Islam a victory which allowed for the freedoms of western civilisation we enjoy today.
Bill Shorten has inherited the Shariah-compliant finance portfolio in our new Labor Government. Is he prepared to listen and educate himself on its dangers? In particular, is he aware of Islamic finance's leading role in financing terror?
No doubt Nick Sherry handed Bill his research into Islamic finance, that taqiyya-rich old chestnut"Demystifying Islamic Finance". This is a marketing publication from a Malaysian law firm specialising in Islamic finance and who wants business in Australia. The relevant "terror financing" section (which is an adequate summary of the usual lies) is addressed as follows:
The Shariah considers illegal use of violence - especially against innocent victims - as a heinous crime, and hence categorically condemns terrorism. This means that, as a matter of principal, an Islamic financial institution is strictly prohibited by the Shariah from knowingly assisting, what more actively participating, in terror related activities.
So what is “illegal”, “innocent”, "terror" and "terrorists" in Shariah law? As lawyers and Muslims, you know it's all in the definitions, isn't it?
The Allahabad High Court, Lucknow bench, has delivered the much awaited judgement and decided the case of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid that had been hanging fire for almost sixty years plus. Let us take a look what the major issues were and who the main contestants were. The three judge bench comprised Justice Sharma, Justice Agarwal and Justice Khan.
The judges were unanimous in their decision that Shri Ram Chandra Ji was born there where his idol known as Ram Lala is Virajman for worship. Thus the sanctum sanctorum belongs to Ram Lala Ji and that the idols will NOT be removed. The Hindu worship would continue as heretofore.
Asked (allegedly) by a seven year old boy on the afternoon school bus to Marrakai, to remove her hijab, six year old Iran Ghavami responded in the way her Muslim upbringing conditioned her to respond - violence combined with humiliation of the kuffar boy.
A SIX-year-old Muslim girl has been banned from the school bus because she dacked a boy after he repeatedly told her to take off her hijab.
“As children tremble and fear everything in the blind darkness, so we in the light sometimes fear what is no more to be feared than the things children in the dark hold in terror”.
Lucretius, On the nature of things (ca. 60 BC)
Famous psychologist Richard Franklin (cited Sagan, 1997, p. 171) while following a group therapy approach, narrated a very interesting fictitious conversation which is as below.
Suppose I seriously make an assertion to you, “A fire-breathing dragon lives in my garage”.
Sunday’s Age recently ran a supplement about the Melbourne suburbs, All about Melbourne. Part Three: The West (October 10) featured a page on the City of Brimbank “one of Victoria’s most culturally diverse municipalities, Brimbank prides itself on its ethnic mix and has embraced more than 156 nationalities from around the globe.”
Strange then that they chose to feature a grinning hijabbed woman called Kylie, of Scottish/English background. Under the title “Kylie is Part of the Mix”. We are told:
This fundamental question is posed by none other than Mark Durie, whose latest book called “The Third Choice” was reviewed on this site on 28th July 2010. As an Anglican theologian, Mark Durie is obviously aware that the Muslim God, Allah, bears little resemblance to YHWH, the God of the Bible. However, an earlier work by Mark Durie deserves serious attention. In an earlier book simply called ‘Revelation’ Durie seeks to answer the fundamental question “do Christians and Muslims worship the same God”? With about half of the world’s population belonging to either of these two ‘faiths’, this is an important question to ask. Muslims believe because of Sura 29:46 that Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship the same God, and of course, they also claim that Islam is an Abrahamic faith like Judaism and Christianity. However Mark Durie skilfully dismisses this claim and shows conclusively that YHWH of the Bible is completely different to Allah of Islam and the two are irreconcilable. This fact has enormous consequences which should be widely debated, because Western civilization is based on Judeo-Christian principles. If our leaders understand this, then political decisions regarding Islam may take a different course, and one that might just save our civilization from the curses of Islam.
Rome is filled with tourists most times of the year but it is especially bursting at the seams at this time due to the coming together of several canonisations this Sunday, the 17th October and also a taxi driver informed me, a pop concert in the Olympic stadium by some European hearthrob. The taxi driver is dreading the traffic and when I tell him I will be in St Peter's Square on Sunday for the canonisations - that is the bestowing of the title of special sanctity on a person who lived a life of love of God and love of fellow human beings - he was curious. When I told him Australia's first saint will be canonised - Saint Mary MacKillop, he was utterly delighted and send ' complimenti a tutti i Australiani' and repeated this several times. Soon to be Saint Mary Mackillop (15 January 1842 – 8 August 1909) was an Australian nun born in the nineteenth century, whose family was originally from Scotland.
What a great springboard to launch one's political career, lubricate one's way to the top in the world of political correctness or even secure a UN advisory position after retiring from active service.
Brigadier McDade last month charged three commandos from the Special Operations Task Group over a raid on a residential compound in Afghanistan's Oruzgan province early last year.
Of course that under the circumstances the defence provided by our military commanders is less than adequate.
The sane elements in the society had made appeals to all Indians to observe decorum and respect the judgement of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court. Promises were made by men who mattered in the realm of religion, law and politics that they would not say or do anything to incite the ignorant masses to resort to violence, irrespective of the tilt in the judgement this way or that.
It must be said that the leaders in various walks of life maintained equanimity of mind for some time post judgement. Perhaps they were slowly absorbing the legal nuances of the bulky pronouncements made by the three honourable judges separately. And then hell broke loose in torrents of unbridled pronouncements made by the Imam of Jama Masjid of Delhi, Mulayam Singh Yadav and some journalists of the bygone era who had almost faded into oblivion.
In the Previous article Dangerous Policy of Muslim Appeasement in the U.K., it has been pointed out that the British Labour politicians have adopted the disastrous policy of Muslim appeasement to capture their block-votes to win election and stay in power. But little do they understand what Sir Winston Churchill had said, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last”. While commenting on Islam, he, in another occasion said, “No greater retrograde force (than Islam) exists in the world.”
It may be mentioned that, in India since independence, congress and all other political parties, including BJP, who came to power played vote Bank politics by appeasing minority Muslims, at the cost of majority Hindus as well as the national interest. So, Naresh Khanna, a political analyst, writes, “Though India is being devoured bit by bit, every day, by its tormentors, India continues to appease them (Muslims). Poisonous politics of appeasement has crippled India and ravaged its body and soul. …. Genocide and eviction of Hindus from Kashmir to be made refugees in their own country; frequent Pak-Bangla sponsored terrorist attacks on security forces, civilians and temples; continuation of Article 370 conferring a special status on Muslim majority Jammu and Kashmir; infiltration of millions of Pak-Bangla (Muslim) nationals into India to create one more Islamic country on Indian soil represent the bitter harvest of this suicidal appeasement. The Indian Government, starting from secularism has steadily gone towards Minority (Muslim) appeasement. … The future of 85% of the population (Hindus) of India is bleak unless the present Government is replaced by a truly secular government.”
Al Age’s Good Weekend September 18th featured a youth issue, which included an article about our 2010 Australian Youth Representative to the UN. In case you’re imagining your typical friendly outgoing Aussie, let me reassure you that in our glorious multicultural society, a Muslim woman complete with hijab is our chosen representative. Given that Muslims comprise only 2% of our population, and Muslim females presumably roughly half that amount, you could be forgiven for asking why choose someone who speaks for only 1% of our youth.
Let’s hear more about Samah Hadid: a 22 year old human rights advocate from Bankstown, Sydney’s West, she is completing her Masters in Human Rights Law and Policy at the University of New South Wales, and in her spare time is a performance artist writing a play called The Burqa Monologues.
[For Readers information: On Sunday October 3, 2010, Christiane Amanpour has moderated a live debate “Holy War: Should Americans Fear Islam?” broadcasted fromr ABC in New York City.

This is the latest article in a series we just call “Oh Europe” where we take a look at how Islamization is changing European countries. Previously in February 2010 we examined how Sweden was deteriorating under Islamic influence and how the third largest city Malmo was a danger zone for non Muslims. [see References] Recently circulating in some Australian communities is a passionate letter written by a woman who had lived and worked in Denmark and was horrified at how the country was changing for the worse. She also notes the attempts to correct the situation and how ministers brave enough to face the challenge have suffered personal attacks with their home being torched. This woman, Susan MacAllen, lived and worked in Denmark and her letter reveals the hallmark trends of Muslim encroachment on Western values, including the following:
Ms Benazir Bhutto, the slain Prime Minister of Pakistan, had written in her revised autobiographical book, Daughter of the East, that many a time the Pakistan Army generals, including Pervez Musharraf, later President of Pakistan, and Mirza Aslam Beg, former Pakistan army chief and both Mohajirs or refugees of Indian origin, had presented her a plan to wrest Srinagar, capital of Kashmir, from India in no time if she approved of the military invasion. "What next?" that was her query. The generals assured her of a place in history of winning Kashmir and merging it with Pakistan. The generals pulled the Islamic card out and invited Ms Benazir Bhutto to celebrate merger of Kashmir with Pakistan by offering namaz in the jama masjid of Srinagar. Little did they realise that Benazir, being a woman, was not permitted to enter the portals of a mosque, what to say of offering prayers. The generals were busy building castles in the air as no ground was available to them in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Allah made it clear in the Quran that he sent no miracles with Mohammed, neither in his Quran nor in his hadith. Would this stop Muslims from claiming that there are miracles in the Quran and sunna? I doubt it!
The Quran is the Muslims’ most read book yet it is the least understood. Muslims read the Quran to earn ‘hasanat’, which are the Islamic good deeds that help the Muslim go to paradise. It is the process of reading the Quran that counts whereas the process of understanding is just a bonus. This reward system is fair and should be considered a sign of Allah’s generosity because understanding the Quran is not an easy task; fourteen centuries on and Muslims still do not agree on its understanding! This is hardly surprising since the proper understanding of the Quran is only known to Allah and may be a handful of Arabs (1), which makes you wonder why bother writing it at all.
Recently reported on this site is the attempt to rewrite history by the introduction of a school reference text called ‘Learning From One Another’. [see References] Those of us with children and/ or grandchildren in the Australian Education system should be alarmed by what is happening. There is a determined and deceptive system of Dawa underway to subvert the minds of young children and to give them a false impression that Islam is peaceful, and that Allah is the same God as Christians and Jews worship. This is incredibly dangerous as whoever controls history dictates the future to a large extent. We need to take action NOW to stop this Stealth Islamization of Australia through our school children.
We’ve already seen how Islam is encroaching into our school system: Muslims, with the help of our academic elites, are Islamising the curriculum by introducing LFOA (see various articles). But is that enough? Not according to World Vision Australia’s CEO, Tim Costello, who believes the teaching of geography should be an opportunity for brainwashing our children with extremist ideology:
WHAT are we teaching our young people? What do we want them to know about the world and their place in it? What fire do we want to light in their lives?
Dear Readers and Supporters,
AIM and Islam-Watch sites are being moved from our current host to a new environment. It is taking all my "spare" time to achieve the final objective and so posting of articles may be a bit "irregular" during this time of transition.
Hopefully it won't take too long.
Thirty years ago, there were 82,000 Muslims in UK, and at present, the number has swelled to 2.5 million, or in other words, there has been a thirty-fold increase in 30 years. According to the 2001 census, total population of the United Kingdom was 58,789,194, the third largest in the European Union, the fifth largest in the Commonwealth and the twenty-first largest in the world. By mid-2009, this was estimated to have grown to 61,792,000. A study reveals that Muslim population in UK, from 2004 to 2008 has increased as shown in the table below:
