Jihad In Australia

Plenty of informed and concerned voices have warned for years now about the expansion of Islam in Australia, the failure of multiculturalism, and the plague of political correctness sweeping the land. Taken together we have a recipe for disaster. And today’s front page headlines make this absolutely clear.

The main set of headlines have to do with pre-dawn raids which took place this morning. Hundreds of police have swept on over a dozen properties in Sydney and Brisbane as part of an anti-terrorism campaign. Here is how one news item begins its report:

islam 111A series of anti-terrorism raids were sparked by intelligence reports that Islamic State supporters were planning a public execution in Australia, Prime Minister Tony Abbott says. Details of the planned attack have emerged in the wake of the biggest anti-terrorism operation in Australia’s history, involving hundreds of police officers in co-ordinated raids across Sydney and Brisbane this morning.
Mr Abbott was briefed on the police raid on Wednesday night, which included intelligence that public beheadings were planned. “The exhortations, quite direct exhortations, were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country,” he told reporters. “So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that’s why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have.”
NSW Police will allege that some of the Sydney men arrested in the operation had communicated with the Islamic State organisation while developing their alleged plan to seize a random member of the public and behead them live on camera. Fifteen men were arrested during the co-ordinated raids across Sydney early this morning, with one, who police will allege was a principle in the alleged plan, due to appear in a Sydney court today.

And as this story is being played out just now, with new details emerging throughout the day, we also find this utterly shocking headline in today’s news: “Sydney Christian school targeted by death threats from ‘Islamic State’ flagged car.” The story opens:

A Christian school in Sydney’s west has reported death threats aimed at Christians this week. The principal of the Maronite College of the Holy Family in Harris Park told police that men made the threats from a car outside the school about 2pm on Tuesday. Sister Margaret Ghosn said the threats were general and then directed towards a staff member of the school. “They said, ‘We are going to kill all of you here,’ ” Sister Margaret said. “They were threatening to kill all Christians.”
The car reportedly had a flag, similar to those brandished by Islamic State jihadists, hanging out the window.
Witnesses told police the small triangular flag had Arabic words similar to “there is only one god and Muhammad is the prophet”. About 1200 boys and girls attend the Maronite College of the Holy Family, an Arabic language school formerly known as the Our Lady of Lebanon School. Earlier reports of the threats referred to the Our Lady of Lebanon Church directly across the road from the school. A priest from the church said the people in the car threatened to “kill the Christians” and slaughter their children.

Wow, Christians are now being targeted in Sydney! It is no longer just a case of the Islamic war against Christians occurring in Iraq or Syria or Lebanon. It is now going on right here in Australia. How much more blatant and obvious is the threat of Islamic jihad right under our own noses?

Yet once again our clueless, spineless and PC leaders have bent over backwards to deny the obvious. All this has nothing to do with Islam they insist! Thus Prime Minister Tony Abbott just said, again, “I just want to completely dispel any idea that this is about religion. It’s not. I want to completely dispel any idea that this is about particular communities. It’s not.”

Um, when Muslims planning to do Muslim things in the name of Islam are arrested in terrorist raids, then yes, Islam is involved big time. When Muslims carrying Islamic flags threaten Christians, then yes, Islam is involved. Yes it does have to do with a particular religion. Yes it does have to do with a particular community.

But still we have PC pollies insisting that this has zippo to do with a religion beginning with the letter ‘I’ and ending with ‘slam’. And so much of this plain denial of reality is sadly all about politics. Politicians without principle care only about one thing: getting votes. So they are willing to put the whole nation at risk, just to chase a few votes.

And Labor is even worse on actually clearly naming and identifying the enemy. And this is for a very obvious reason. Consider the situation in Sydney. The reality is this: there are 20 Western Sydney Federal seats, all with growing Muslim populations, 19 of which are held by Labor. As Miranda Devine rightly notes:

Labor is craven and obstructive on Islamist extremism because they don’t want to alienate Muslims in marginal seats in south-western Sydney and west of Melbourne. The most populous Muslim electorates in the country are Labor. Blaxland, held by Jason Clare, has a Muslim population approaching 25 per cent, Watson, held by Tony Burke, has 20 per cent. Next comes the Labor seat of Calwell, in northwest Melbourne, with 16 per cent. The fourth most populous Muslim electorate is the Sydney seat of Reid, with 10 per cent, the only significant Muslim electorate held (barely) by a Liberal, Craig Laundy.

According to our latest census, Muslims comprise just over two per cent of the nation’s population, yet we have cowardly politicians obsessed with placating Muslims and winning their vote. As a result, they refuse to put two and two together.

Yes terrorism is a big problem here. But it is Islamic terrorism which is the problem. Unless we address the real issue and actually identify the main culprits, we will never be able to defeat this foe. It is time to stop playing political games and start facing reality.

The reality is, Islam is a very real threat. We have regular beheadings done by Muslims in the name of Islam in places like Iraq, and increasingly in places like Britain. And now we were on the verge of seeing this happen in Sydney. Thankfully some of this has now been detected and stopped.

But this is not the end of the matter. We need to start implementing realistic and effective policies here. Much stricter immigration laws need to be enacted, and we need to be willing to expel any known jihadists, Islamists, IS members, or their sympathisers.

Both Federal SA Senator Cory Bernardi and NSW state politician Fred Nile have recently resumed calls for a ban on the burqa. That is the very least we can do. Yet as usual they are both being demonised for even raising this as an option. Go figure.

Let me tell you one thing: A nation is pretty much curtains when politicians get more criticism for their concerns about the political ideology of Islam than do those who are actually promoting terrorism, jihad and bloodshed.

  1. Why are we not surprised by this latest threat especially against Christians.
    The sooner our politicians and the MSM accept that these people are actually Muslims the better off this country will be.
    Thank you Bill. How sad that we have to rely on you to provide the truth on these matters.
    Only the truth will set us free.

  2. They essentially have a free reign to do whatever jihadic action they can imagine without incurring any judgment, criticism,or even questioning of Islam.

    Even when we have our first beheadings in Australia, still Islam will remain innocent in the eyes of the media and the politicians. At least, the cowardly ones.

  3. Will be interesting to see what the likes of “The Project” make of the muslim element of these arrests. That those accused are almost certainly all muslim, acting out of fervour driven by their faith must surely count for something in terms of the action being islamic.

  4. We know exactly what they will do Andrew. They will have Waleed Aly on assuring us that all this has zippo to do with Islam, and Abbott and the police are racist bigots and Islamophobes.

  5. Well why is none of this surprising. Gutless and clueless. Read the damn koran and chapter and verse THEN say this is not a war against Western civilization. I dare you PC Politicians

  6. We need to change voting legislation to protect our country. This is the most sensible and fairest way.
    If you and your parents were not born here, no right to vote, unless . . . you have lived here, can speak, read and write our language fluently, worked continuously [or been wife and mother / homemaker] and paid tax here for more than 20 years and are a full Australian citizen and having pledged allegiance to the country and its laws, then they have earned the right to vote. To allow people just arrived in our country to vote is leaving us open to corruption from politicians. We need to make it clean and fair.

  7. Correct me if i’m wrong, but it seems Waleed Aly is never on the Project when there are stories on Islam? …i dont see the show much on purpose but whenever there have been stories on islam it just happens to be a night when Waleed Aly is not a host….

  8. We have “sown the wind” and may “reap the whirlwind” very soon unless we come to our senses and acknowledge plain facts. We have the right and duty to protect freedom and democracy in our nation. That obviously includes acting to protect our citizens against those who deliberately threaten them. The level of response should reflect the level of threat surely?

  9. Good point about Sen. Bernardi’s suggestion yet even as news.com.au reported the news about the plot they couldn’t help themselves and mock Sen. Bernardi for that move. Their total inability to connect the dots is depressingly familiar with the nonsense spilling over the lips of PM Abbott.

  10. When we wilfully reject God’s Law, then we reap the consequences of disobedience. God very clearly commands that the foreigner is not to participate in the political process for from between 4 and ten generations after arriving in the land.

    We welcome the foreigner, and so we should, but then we given the vote to people who have not embraced our Faith, and genuinely become one of us. Looking after the foreigner is mandatory, according to the Law of God, as a precursor to evangelism. Giving the unconverted foreigner the franchise is suicidal.

    We are reaping what we deserve, as a consequence of allowing God’s Law to fall to the ground in the streets.

    God bless you, Bill.

  11. Good article and well said! It is PC to say that ‘Islam is a religion of peace & it’s only a few radicals we need to worry about.’ But it is NOT politically correct to say the truth – ie. ‘Islam itself is the problem. The Quran itself advocates murder of infidels.

  12. Have never read you’re writing before but agree with you. I think there is too much PC in this country. And am sick of muslims having so much influence. Hate the way some schools dont have christmas because they will insult the islamic students. We are a Christian country.

  13. First it was nazism that posed the biggest threat to the world and then it was communism that posed the biggest threat to the world and now it is islam that poses the biggest threat to the world.

  14. Grim news. It’s frustrating that our elected officials seem to be so poor at fulfilling their primary task, namely to safeguard this country and its people.

  15. The West needs to perform its own form of beheadings and then the body will simply run about like a headless chicken. Close down all mosques and ban the Qu’ran. If the Moslems don’t like this no one is stopping them from finding asylum in anyone of many countries dominated by Islam.
    This contrasts with Jews who had only one country to which to flee.

  16. I never heard the news about the flag waving people threatening the school on the ABC but sure enough, I heard about the person who wrote “evil” on a mosque in Queensland somewhere and the true to form comments about that being “un-australian .
    IF we do not start taking a strong stand against the ideology while showing tolerance, true tolerance that is towards those people who are happy to live peacefully under Australian rule even while they still adhere to a different religion to that which gave us our good values, then those who recognise Islam as evil but do not have the tools to distinguish between the ideology and the people will see that this evil gets driven out of our land and they will do it the only way they know how by violence and anger.
    It’s time for true christian to take leadership in the political realm.
    Many blessings

  17. I was watching a Willie Wagtail chase a large black Crow away from her nest this morning. It occurred to me that our national leaders could learn a lot from this.

  18. We are engaged in a zero sum game with Islam. The winner takes all and the losers leave with nothing. One only has to look a the number of flagrant, physical attacks on clergy and churches in Europe, in some cases with the latter being burned or forced to close, to realise that it is not just in Islamic countries where Christianity is being expunged but even now in our own countries.

  19. “But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord Your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. … The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the end of the earth, swooping down like the eagle, a nation whose language you do not understand, a hard-faced nation who shall not respect the old or show mercy to the young. … They shall besiege you in all your towns, until your high and fortified walls, in which you trusted, come down throughout all your land. And they shall besiege you in all your towns throughout all you land, which the Lord your God has given you. … Deuteronomy 28.

    With an annual murder rate of around 100,000 babies a year in Australia, why should we be surprised that God is sending his hammer of discipline to call us to repentance? Wilful, repeated, unrepented-of sin has its consequences.

    I have been talking about the Islamic invasion for around 30 years. When I first started talking, I was treated as one who was a know-nothing imbecile. “Humour him, and he will calm down.”

    I read Revelation Chapters 2 & 3, in 1984 and then thought about the location of those churches in Asia Minor- “repent or I will remove your candle stick”, “repent or I will kill you with death”, “repent, or …” Every single one of those churches was eventually over-run by Islam, because they did not repent as commanded by Jesus.

    Think about it. I did, and was very concerned about our own multi-cultural policy–inviting strangers to come to our country, and in a short time giving them the franchise–pinky promise you will do the right thing. I love the foreigner, and have housed and entertained literally hundreds in my home, and have preached the Gospel to more non-English speaking people than I can count. A few even became Christians, but not many. But I say, it is foolishness to give the vote to those who have not become accustomed to our way of life. It takes generations to adopt the ways of a new homeland.

    God bless you.
