Aussie Dhimwit of the Month (January 2010)

E-mail Print PDF

The tennis is over for another year, with  Serena Williams and Roger Federer emerging triumphant, despite their opponents putting up a good fight. Likewise, although good dhimmis, neither Marr nor Burke could plumb the depths of dhimmitude required for our coveted Dhimwit award. Not that they didn't try! Like most PC elitists, Marr shows great disdain for Judeo-Christian values and seems to think that any who fear Islam must be racists (white of course!) As for Prof Burke, his attempts to gag academic discourse and prevent Dr Mervyn Bendle from revealing the parlous state of terrorism studies, where academics downplay the danger from jihadis, preferring to hold Western countries responsible for terrorism, were positively heroic.

But they couldn't beat Jon Stanhope, our winner for January.
So what makes Stanhope such an uber dhimmi?

1. When local residents in the Canberra suburb of Nicholls managed to put off plans for a Mosque in the area, their triumph was short-lived. Dhimmi ACT Chief Minister Stanhope pushed to establish a mosque elsewhere in the area  twice the size of the original proposal.

Plans for a mosque in Nicholls have been abandoned after opposition from residents over parking and traffic concerns.

Canberra Muslim Community president Khondoker Yusuf said that the organisation would now try to find a more suitable location in the Gungahlin area.


Yusuf said an alternative site could also mean a rethink of the size of the mosque. A capacity of 250 people had been planned for Nicholls, but a larger mosque would now be considered to meet future needs.

Stanhope said a site in the Gungahlin Town Centre could be a better option for a 500-capacity mosque as parking would be less of an issue. (source)

2.  Stanhope recently approved a massive new Canberra madrassah: 

The Islamic School of Canberra might relocate to Weston so it can cater for secondary students and accommodate growing student numbers.

The ACT Government announced yesterday the vacant CIT site could be a possible ''new home'' for the school, which is currently housed at the former Watson High campus.

The school has enjoyed increasing enrolments and has more than 100 students from kindergarten to Year 6, but to register as a high school and accept secondary students it needs to occupy larger premises.
Stanhope said the school had been approved for a direct grant of land and the Government had been look
ing for possible sites.

''They are currently in the old Watson High School; they have outgrown that ... they are looking to extend into high school but they can't do it on that site,'' he said.

The CIT Horticulture School in Heysen Street, Weston, which is relocating to Bruce in 2010, had been identified as a possible new home for the school.

3. He KNOWS Islam is peaceful. In a 2005 Media Release, he opined that:

Terrorism was the work of ideological extremists whose beliefs and methods were abhorrent to the overwhelming majority of the world's Muslims.

He met local Islamic leaders at the Canberra mosque to reaffirm Canberra's commitment to multiculturalism and to join with Muslims in condemning terrorism and mourning its victims.

"The terrorists who claim to commit acts of terror in the name of Islam, are no more representative of the Islamic faith than the IRA bombers were representative of Christianity, or the Tamil Tiger suicide bombers are of Hinduism," Mr Stanhope said.

"For the overwhelming majority of Muslims, Islam is a religion that teaches peace...in Canberra our diverse communities of Muslims are deeply and securely embedded in all aspects of our shared life...just as they have something in common with other Muslim communities - a shared faith - they also have much in common with non-Muslims - a love of our way of life and a respect for human rights, including religious freedom."

Down through history people of many faiths have resorted to acts of terror in a bid to shock and frighten their enemies, but these individuals are motivated by extremist interpretations of religious teachings. It is vital that their actions not be allowed to sour the community's tolerance of religious and cultural diversity.

These are feelings the ACT Government fosters through our Framework for a Multicultural ACT, our Strategic Plan Addressing Racism and Unfair Discrimination, the Canberra Social Plan, and the Human Rights Act...which are helping us to build an inclusive community in which each of us has the opportunity to reach our potential and each of us contributes to the community.

I trust that that knowledge will quieten our fear, heighten our resolve and consolidate our sense of brotherhood."
  (source)

Stanhope's wish to consolidate a sense of Brotherhood will no doubt be fulfilled, but not in the way he meant it!

4. He reprimanded Liberal MLA Steve Pratt for daring suggest he was not tough on extremism:

"I was astonished and somewhat disturbed to read Mr Pratt's utterly inaccurate account of my meeting with members of the local Islamic community..."

He says - wrongly - that I failed to publicly attack extremism. ... I explicitly condemned extremism and violence in the strongest possible terms. He says - again wrongly - that I criticised federal and state leaders who have called for a tightening of anti-terrorist laws.

... Mr Pratt ought, as the Liberals' spokesman on multiculturalism, to join with me in a bipartisan attempt to reassure Canberra's law-abiding Muslims that they are welcome and respected members of our community.

During my mosque visit I was chastened to witness the anxiety felt by law-abiding Australian citizens who happen to be Muslims, in the wake of recent terrorist attacks. These are individuals who have nothing to apologise for,  yet they are being made to feel that they ought to apologise, that they need to publicly and personally renounce violence in a way that is not expected of any other group of Australians. The fact that they used the mosque visit to do just that - to express their abhorrence of terrorism and their commitment to Australia, the rule of law, and peace - showed a degree of maturity from which Mr Pratt could learn something." 
(source)

Seems that Pratt might have a point - Stanhope seems to  be more concerned with the sensitivities of Muslims than the victims of terrorist attacks. And surely it is not unreasonable to expect Muslims to renounce Islamically sanctioned violence if they want to live in democracy like Australia.

 5. He has won the approval of AFIC, which means he is a very good dhimmi!:

One of the foremost projects we have been focussing on is to form partnerships to actively engage with Islamic countries through their embassies in Canberra, to form a vital link in the chain of Muslim unity and brotherhood, and to participate in various exchange programs and initiatives with the aim of enhancing an understanding of Islam, promoting human rights and justice, and empowering Muslims of Australia.
         
We are particularly pleased to announce a permanent home and premises for the Islamic School of Canberra. AFIC welcomes the decision of the ACT Government to allocate the former CIT School of Horticulture site in Weston as permanent premises for the Islamic School of Canberra.

We acknowledge the role of the Chief Minister Jon Stanhope for his inclusive vision and recognition of community needs and contribution in ACT.
  (source)

All I can say is, if Islamists in Canberra like what he is doing, then our country is in grave danger.
What Muslims call his "inclusive vision" is appeasement and capitulation.

So,  for helping to Islamize Canberra, our capital city, Stanhope is our first Dhimwit of 2010.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

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.

History - Infidels' Resistance

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.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
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.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow 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. [1]

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. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

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.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy 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).

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.
