Recently, the reputable International Journal of Cardiology accepted for publication the following essay penned by a group of four Islamists. I may assume them to be of Cardiology Professionals albeit of Islamic mind.
The heart and cardiovascular system in the Qur'an and Hadeeth written by Marios Loukas, Yousuf Saad, R. Shane Tubbs and Mohamadali M. Shojawhich.
The readers must read the above essay in the following web site: HERE
How our world has changed! These days it is impossible to escape the daily news of a suicide bomber somewhere in Iraq or Pakistan, a Christian girl captured and forcibly converted to Islam in Egypt, raging mobs burning Churches in Indonesia, rape epidemics by Muslim men in England and Sweden and the constant threats to blow up the West because we have “insulted” the Religion of Peace. And we in the West meekly accept what the Imams tell us, that Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship the same God.
Of course, the Quran confirms this in Sura 29.46:
“And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender”.
I was struck by the leading letter in Al Age today, under the heading “A little cultural understanding goes a long way”
This well-meaning lady had (probably inadvertantly), put her finger on the problem. Just an extract…
“HERE is a snapshot of the Sudanese families in my community. The adult males were killed in the wars in Africa or are languishing in over-crowded refugee camps waiting to be processed; the bulk of the families are female-headed, with a mother bringing up the children on her own. The ladies I know (who go to the same church as my mother) are doing all they can to assimilate into our society. It touches my heart to see these women, tall, elegant and proud with their children all dressed in their Sunday best going to church, to pray, socialise and swap recipes with the other women.”
Yes, who could not feel compassion for these victims of such appalling barbarity.
But from here on, the lady descends into the usual PC blame-the-victim gobbledegook.
“They have formed a terrorist cell, called the Sudanese Women's Sewing Group — not the sort of people we want in Australia. We do not do enough to assist with assimilation, that is evidenced by the fact that I saw a Sudanese friend of mine on the brink of tears in the supermarket. When I asked her why, she responded: "I'm not sad, I'm happy; so much food, every day." Think about it, Australia must seem like Disneyland, yet we do very little to help people find their feet, and if they trip or stumble, we blame them. I'm glad I'm a white Anglo-Saxon Aussie. It's so good to be perfect, isn't it Mr Howard?“
That’s right, reach the wrong conclusion. Blame John Howard, blame white Anglo-Saxons. But never blame the perpetrators - the Arab Janjaweed militias (MUSLIMS) who are committing acts of unspeakable barbarity, and not only against Black Christians but against Black Muslims.
Alleged ‘Security Expert’ says that the causes of insecurity are all alleged.
According to a laughable British 'Security Expert', this could have easily been avoided! If only we'd had a nice 'inclusive' talk with nineteen Islamist freaks at the 'Airport Coffee & Cake-O-Rama'. It's a great place to snack, chat and Jihad!
All our food is Halal, so please notice this little courtesy Mr Islamist freak, and try not to want to kill us all please? Is that ok? I hope I wasn't too assertive there? Look! I'm really abasing myself and being tolerant and understanding like crazy! I feel your rich Arab pain!
If only we hadn't done a million things over the last 2,000 years and instead done a million other things instead and neither and also both at once...if only. Note to self: 'The list of things that offend Muslims can be narrowed down to everything and nothing'.
Despite Aussie media picturing Taliban Dave as a cute little kid the Senate doesn't want to bring him "home".
Australian media tries very hard to de-demonize Taliban Dave.
This is how we were shown our Taliban hero in the beginning:
But now it is all about young, innocent kid from Oz:
Andrew Bolt says:
I DIDN'T realise David Hicks, the alleged al-Qaida member, was in fact just a nine-year-old boy with freckles.
How low can you go?
Finally ABC admitted to anti-Israeli bias in their reporting of the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah.
Some of the "unintended" errors were:
- Two instances where Lebanon was incorrectly identified as the location where two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped (they were kidnapped during a raid on Israel’s northern border),
- Repeatedly referring to Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital.
- A report that gave the impression there was doubt about Syria playing host to the Hamas leadership.
- AM presenter Tony Eastley told listeners that “the seizure of the soldiers was used by Israel as a reason to launch attacks into Lebanon against Hezbollah”, implying that Israel wanted to attack Lebanon and just needed an excuse to justify the offensive.
- Tony Jones informed viewers that the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 had triggered that country’s civil war
This week many of us will be glued to our TVs watching the Olympics, marvelling at the spectacular opening ceremony and the sight of top athletes competing. Most will feel a glow of pride when their country wins a medal. That’s certainly how I felt when our swimmers performed so well. China is (mostly) basking in the glow of world adulation for their performance in staging the Olympic Games.
Watching Compass on Sunday night about whether China could accommodate God gave me pause for thought.
“Signs of a transition from communism to western liberalism are everywhere. There’s also a resurgence of religious belief in the world’s most populous nation. But believers are struggling for religious freedom, walking a thin line between toleration and persecution.”
One thing that struck me was that whilst other religions were tightly circumscribed, with those not meeting official requirements persecuted, and their members often imprisoned and tortured, Islam was recognised as most like Marxism and given many more freedoms and privileges. A large mosque in Beijing attests to Islam’s favoured status. (reference)
Let’s hear it from Peter Manning, journalist and academic, who researched how Sydney’s two daily newspapers
covered Arabic and Muslim people.…
” for the year before September 11, 2001 and the year after. And these two years covered… the arrival of largely Arabic boat people, including the famous “Tampa” incident; the Palestinian second intifada; two gang rapes involving Lebanese young men; the attack on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon on September 11 itself; the 2001 federal election; and the looming war on Iraq”.
What did he find?
“a portrait of sustained fear. It is as though we are talking of another species…
Arabs and Muslims … and Palestinians in particular, are seen as violent to the point of terrorism. Israel, the US and Australia – ‘us’ – are seen under attack from such people and they are seen as both an external and internal threat. ‘Their’ violence is portrayed as without reason, humanity or compassion for its victims. Arab young men, in particular, are seen as especially threatening, wanting ‘our’ Caucasian women and not policed sufficiently by their own communities, who lack either values (respect for women) or interest (accepting responsibility) for these men. The men, women and children seeking to come here ‘illegally’ from the Muslim Middle East are portrayed as tricky ungrateful, undeserving (possibly well-off), often disgusting and barely human.”
What can have caused such perceptions of Muslim Arabs? It can’t be their actions, so it must be OUR prejudices.
Some readers may recall the story of the Muslim found with chemicals for bomb making in his house who claimed he was just interested in chemicals. He also had a map of the Sydney electricity grid he claimed he kept ‘for artistic purposes’. Now we have a Sydney man, Belal Saadallah Khazaal , who has authored a Jihad instruction book and who is protesting his innocence of any crime. No doubt it was written for his own personal use and inner spiritual growth, to promote harmony and peace. However, Khazaal, it seems, has aroused some suspicions on the part of the australian Commonwealth Police, suspicisons that what he is doing is not for personal meditation needs. He is before the Supreme Court of NSW because the police think he may have been up to no good. However the judge, Justice Megan Latham is pleading with onlookers and jurors not to assume that ‘the Muslim religion is on trial’.
Belal Saadallah Khazaal, who has authored a Jihad instruction book: Provisions on the Rules of Jihad - short judicial rulings and organisational instructions for fighters and mujahidin against infidels
It is therefore very unpleasant that the prosecution let it be known some time ago, some facts about the book that Khaazal wrote [of course using the word ‘allegedly’]:
In September 2003, Khazaal allegedly compiled a book titled: Provisions on the Rules of Jihad - short judicial rulings and organisational instructions for fighters and mujahidin against infidels.
By publishing it on the internet, the court was told, he tried to urge others to engage in a terrorist act. The act allegedly involved an action or threat of action against people identified in the book, including diplomats, military personnel and holders of public office. It was done "with the intention of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause, namely the advancement of the Muslim religion in the world". (source)
Israel is under intense pressure to bow to international demands by providing land to create a separate Palestinian state
in the hope that peace will follow.
In December 2007, our Dhimmi world leaders committed US$7.4 billion to the creation of a separate Palestinian state by coercing Israel to surrender some of its territory. 
The assumption, of course, is that by giving land to the Palestinians, that peace will automatically follow, and our world leaders can all line up to receive their Nobel Prizes for Peace.
Land for peace. Does this sound familiar?
The situation in the Middle East at the moment is similar what occurred exactly 70 years ago that lead to the start of World War II. In September 1938, Nazi Germany was demanding that Czechoslovakia cede the Sudetenland on its border to Germany, and world leaders at that time, including Neville Chamberlain of Britain persuaded the Czech Prime Minister that peace would follow.
There’s nothing nicer than sharing a meal, where strangers quickly become friends under the rosy glow of good food and pleasant conversation.
So what better way of sharing Ramadan than to throw open your house to infidels.
The Australian Intercultural Society’s (AIS)
Ramadan Iftar Project sees people from across Victoria share a meal with a Muslim family during the fasting month of Ramadan.
Emre Celik from AIS said the Ramadan Iftar Project signified the strong desire of Muslim people to be accepted.
“This is a great way for people to come together and help break down the barriers that exist between communities and help overcome the fear and misunderstanding that people have of the Muslim community,” he said.
I’d like to talk about our post-9/11 world as the anniversary approaches. I mean no disrespect to those who perished on that day, or to their families and loved ones who still suffer.
9/11 – For me, not a random date but one I picked as example, purely
because this is THE DATE from which many people can place their “awareness of islam”. Certainly many amongst us had already comprehended the enormous threat islam poses prior to that date but, for sheer infamy, impact and “brand recognition”, for far more people there can be no more shocking an anniversary. It was the day islam marched into the living rooms of millions and raped us as we sat, tears streaming down our faces, horror filling our hearts, watching the predictions of the brave few coming to reality.
Jihad had come to America.
Since 9/11 the nations of the “free world” have been desperate to understand the “underlying causes” of such a devastating event and to try and make sense of whatever reasons we are given, even when the reasons given are fatuous propaganda, not worth the effort of fathoming. Far from being ‘reasons’, what we have had presented to us is nothing more than an insult to our intelligence.
Readers Digest recently (September 2008) featured an interview with Dick Smith, the famous Australian adventurer and philanthropist, concerning his support for convicted Muslim terrorist and Australian citizen David Hicks.
The interview was conducted by one James Knight who headed the article with this caption: Most trusted Icon Dick Smith tells why he spoke up for accused terrorist David Hicks.
Before we proceed, a question first. Do the words, accused terrorist, in front of Hicks name infer that he has not been found guilty by a military tribunal of providing material support for a terrorist group or is it a misprint? Let us not forget that Hicks pleaded guilty. If those words are not a misprint do we then take up the meaning that there are some in our media who do not abide by a lawful courts decision which contradicts their beliefs that Hicks was guilty of any wrongdoing while working with Al Quaeda?
MEDIA RELEASEAnti-Terrorism Academic to Face Charges of Serious Academic Misconduct?
Dr Mervyn Bendle
, a senior lecturer in the history of terrorism at James Cook University could face charges of serious academic misconduct, as a result of pressure brought to bear on the university by academics in Canberra complaining about his depiction of their theories of terrorism in a recent article in the monthly literary journal Quadrant
In his extensive review of their work, Bendle disclosed that it appeared to be characterized by a desire to downplay the danger represented by Islamist and jihadist terrorists in favour of a view that held Western countries primarily responsible for terrorism.
Such concerns are highly relevant given the conviction this week in Victoria of a group of Muslim men found guilty of being part of a home-grown terrorist cell plotting to wage violent jihad on Australian soil, including attacks on the AFL Grand Final and Crown Casino.
How’s this for a policy idea? Shuffle the deckchairs and point fingers at the home crowd!
Australia’s domestic scene is becoming foggier and denser, as more and more “victims” are unearthed. We seem to have an interminable list of “victims” these days. Where on earth do we get them from?
Victim-hood, the new growth industry, paid for and supported by the Australian tax-payer. Except, today, the “victim” – which we’ve traditionally understood to be, well, you know…. some-one who has been …victimized, has become the target of our Blessed Leader’s strategizing.
Victim = the casualty, the prey, the dupe, the injured party; the aggrieved party; the wronged party, the affected party.
The solution? The Australian Labor Party! They have the answers. The problem with islam is not islam. The problem with islamists is not islam. The problem with islamic terror is not islam. It’s YOU.
How else to explain the “creeping sharia” of the ALP?
A Piece of this land and a piece of that….
Many people make passing reference to Neville Chamberlain’s speech to the British Parliament in 1938, which has become the iconic speech of a typical appeaser.
What are some of the things that Chamberlain said? In fact the things he said, we hear frequently in our day from interfaith groups, rose coloured glasses committees and the apathetic, here in Australia, Europe and the US.
Chamberlain says of his trip to Munich to sign off on Hitler’s land grab of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland.
Before I come to describe the Agreement which was signed at Munich in the small hours of Friday morning last, I would like to remind the House of two things which I think it very essential not to forget when those terms are being considered. The first is this: We did not go there to decide whether the predominantly German areas in the Sudetenland should be passed over to the German Reich. That had been decided already… What we had to consider was the method, the conditions and the time of the transfer of the territory. The second point to remember is… We had populations inflamed to a high degree; we had extremists on both sides ready to work up and provoke incidents; we had considerable quantities of arms which were by no means confined to regularly organised forces. Therefore, it was essential that we should quickly reach a conclusion, so that this painful and difficult operation of transfer might be carried out at the earliest possible moment and concluded as soon as was consistent, with orderly procedure, in order that we might avoid the possibility of something that might have rendered all our attempts at peaceful solution useless . . ..

Regardless of our social or religious background, going to university is supposed to offer us a chance to mingle with those of all cultures on an equal footing, where ideas can be exchanged freely. But nothing could be further from the truth.
In the RMIT pamphlet “Anti-Racism & Religious Tolerance”, it states that “RMIT is committed to building an accepting environment where all staff and students are treated with dignity, respect and where diversity is valued.” In theory one cannot object to any of this, but as we are fully aware, RMIT is possibly the worst offender
in regard to privileging a select minority.
Anyone with a conscience would oppose the exploitation, slavery and sexual abuse of children. So it goes without saying that decent people WHO KNOW ABOUT Emirates would have nothing to do with this abusive regime.
Sadly, Olympic rower James Tomkins seemed blissfully unaware of what he was endorsing, as he became ”king of the kids” at the Emirates Stakes Fashions on the Field competition for children.
“With a focus on "fun and fashionable racewear", the contest is for boys and girls aged six to 17.
And while it's all good fun, this year's competition has a record prize pool worth $120,000, including a family trip to Dubai with Emirates.
"The main thing is getting kids involved in the racing industry and in fashion and enjoying dressing up and having a good time," Tomkins said. (source)

Hands up those who now get their news from their favorite website or blog, rather than the main stream media (MSM). I’ve got my hand up, and I guess there are many more of you, who like me, now shun news sources from the MSM in favor of the more informative outlets available from the web. While most of what we take in from these outlets should be balanced with a grain of salt, which is how it should be with any news provider, the advantage of the blogosphere is that it is not run by Politically Correct managers who are shackled by their ideological masters, and forbidden to discuss any subject which may adversely expose racial or perceived religious issues, specifically the ‘religion of peace’. Unlike most MSM outlets, therefore what one receives from their favorite blog site is pure and simply, and most importantly, uncensored!
In a bid to prevent himself swirling down the plughole of irrelevance, Malcolm Fraser has come up with a new project - Australians All
He has gathered a group of self styled “eminent Australians” concerned about “serious and dangerous divisions between the West and Islam.”
They aim to promote “an inclusive, open, diverse and multicultural society, where all people — no matter their religion, race, colour or background — have an equal opportunity”
The group affirms support for the Rule of Law, a secular State, freedom of religion and respect for difference; also “Acceptance that the right of free speech and a free press does not include the right to incite racial violence, to demonize or to denigrate a religion or a people”.
Australia, which is accepting migrants in record numbers, has one of the best records in the world for welcoming people from other countries. My parents were refugees after World War II and while they encountered many problems, they were grateful to find peace after the horrors of the war. Many others fleeing conflict ridden situations have said the same kind of thing. Immigrants have had, in general a very positive influence on Australia – culturally, economically and socially. In a simple matter such as food, I can give an example close to home. Up in my local shopping centre, there are restaurants offering Thai, Chinese, Lebanese, Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, French, Greek and Aussie food. From my observation, Australians are more likely to eat food from other countries, than any other place in the world I have visited. When I buy Chinese take-aways, there is often jovial conversation across the counter with the Chinese shop owner: in small ways, on a daily basis such friendly contacts are built across this country.
A summary report based on a research conducted by Ganesh Sahathevan
Malcolm Fraser, former Prime Minister of Australia has increasingly championed Islamist causes in recent times. He also associates with people whose connections with terrorist finance are not exactly a well guarded secret.
One of them is Ameer Ali, one of the co-founders of Australians All, who has strong connections with the shady world of Islamist charities and financial institutions sponsoring Jihad. But why should we blame Malcolm Fraser alone since Ameer Ali, who not so long ago, demanded that Australia takes Hezbollah off its list of terrorist organizations, is also the Chairman of the Muslim Community Reference group, appointed by our current Prime Minister? It would be interesting to know on what bases our government recruits these Islamist activists and who runs their security checks.
Ameer Ali's connections with terrorist finance are not difficult to trace. He is after all an executive council member of the World Muslim League , the same World Muslim League , which has been indicted several times for financing Muslim terrorism via its charities like IIRO (also known as The Human Relief Committee of the Muslim World League).
From 1995 to 2002, al-Obaid headed the Muslim World League (MWL). According to the U.S. Treasury the MWL's Peshawar office was led by Wael Jalaidan, "one of the founders of al Qaeda." Moreover, the main arm of the MWL is the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO). (Source )
Terrorist organizations financed by IIRO include Al Qaeda, Hamas and Algerian radicals to name a few.
How can we fight terrorism when our own leaders and government bodies associate with individuals like Ameer Ali?
Much nonsense was talked during the recent terror trial of the “Benbrika 12” (or maybe to give them due respect, the “Magnificent 12”). In this short article, I can only hope to list a few items. Readers might like to add their favourite “terror tosh” in the comments section.

was indignant that “talking about committing an unspecified violent act actually constitutes a breach of Australian law.” Funny, I can’t remember her expressing similar outrage when the Two Dannies endured years of legal proceedings for simply talking (accurately) about what was in the Qur’an.
“After 482 bugged conversations and thousands of hours of telephone taps and video surveillance, all the prosecution could present to the court was talk. Big talk. Chilling, some of it. But it was, in the end, just that - talk.
You've heard the expression "Eyeless in Gaza" which comes from poem 'Samson Agonistes' by John Milton:
.. Promise was that I
Should Israel from Philistian yoke deliver;
Ask for this great deliverer now, and find him
Eyeless in Gaza at the Mill with slaves ...
Since the dawn of time, animals have been both revered and demonized by humans. Some were viewed as bringing luck and others pestilence and other such ills. But this begs the question, what religious practices do our native Australian animals adhere to?
The two most enduring animal symbols of Australia are the Koala and the Kangaroo.
Internal conflicts destroy Australian Muslim Advisory Group
The Muslim Community Reference Group, set by by Australian Prime Minister John Howard after the London terrorist bombings, is to be abolished due to persistent conflict. Howard's aim was to improve relations with the 300,000 strong Australian Muslim community but infighting has has been a feature of the group since its inception.
Sheikh El Hilaly resigned from the group after disagreements, head of the group Dr Ameer Ali opposed members on the idea that migrants should learn English and youth representative Mustapha Kara-Ali labelled the group 'out of touch'. Some members of the group united to lobby the Federal government to have have Hezbollah removed from its list of terrorist organisations. Now the federal government will try to set up a more 'strategic' group with less internal conflict.
