Sharia Creep Ever On the Rise

Apr 19, 2017

The more creeping sharia takes place in the West, the more Western leaders and elites seem to be in denial about it all. It is as if massive dark fog has fallen over the media, our political leaders, and the intelligentsia. But it is not some external illness or virus, but internal, wilful denial of reality.

sharia 6These folks have decided ahead of time, against all the evidence, that the political ideology known as Islam really is the “religion of peace”. That is the leftist narrative and no amount of evidence to the contrary will ever change their minds.

They refuse to face the facts, and the facts are these: Islam is an archaic, murderous, blood-thirsty death cult. It has been so from day one, and it has been responsible for millions of deaths over its 1400-year history. Every day that we open our newspapers or turn on our televisions we find more compelling proof of this fact.

Whether it is suicide bombers targeting innocent men, women and children in busy markets and streets, or creeping sharia taking place all over the West, the result is the same: Islam keeps advancing while the West and its freedoms keep retreating.

Let me offer yet more examples of both bloody jihad as well as stealth jihad. Consider first three examples from the Australian state of Victoria. These three cases alone should frighten all of us. I simply offer the headline, the date, the opening paragraphs, plus a brief comment on each:

-Extremist dad killed mum in front of kids
March 23, 2017
An aspiring Islamic State fighter and father is accused of slaughtering his wife in front of their three children, gouging out her eye and flushing it down the toilet. The Melbourne man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, took his young children with him in the car to dump their mother’s mutilated body in grassland.
He then took them to a bakery to eat pastries. At the accused killer’s committal hearing on Thursday, a magistrates’ court heard the children are now in the care of child protection services and are highly disturbed.
A Department of Health and Human Services officer gave evidence that when one of the children was given a doll to play with in a sandpit at school and noticed it was missing a limb, he commented “that’s what had happened to his mother”.
Police documents tendered to the court allege the extremist father regularly abused his wife and children, and had a keen interest in fighting for the so-called Islamic State in Syria. The documents say the wife objected to her husband’s jihadist sympathies and that conflict over this may have led to her death. The body of the mother, aged in her 20s, was found by a jogger in Melbourne’s north last year.

Hmmm, the religion of peace again.

-Muslim man, 34, pleads guilty to marrying a girl, 14, at a Melbourne mosque – in ceremony ‘performed by prominent imam‘
April 18, 2017
A Melbourne man has pleaded guilty to entering a marriage with a 14-year-old bride. Mohammad Shakir, 34, is charged with going through a formal ceremony of marriage with a person not of marriageable age at Noble Park last September.
As part of the plea, two charges were withdrawn by prosecutors in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, including allegations Shakir had sex with the girl between September 30 and October 1, 2016, following their wedding. The girl is in a ‘fragile state’ and has ‘ongoing health issues’, prosecutor Ranjani Padmanabhan told Melbourne Magistrates Court in February.

Nothing amiss here given that Muhammad, the perfect example for all Muslims to follow, married one of his many wives, Aisha, at age six and consummated that marriage when she was just nine.

-Taxpayers to fund ‘open days’ at 13 mosques to help ‘break down misconceptions of Islam’ in Australia
April 18, 2017
Mosques across Victoria will open their doors to non-Muslims on May 7 to ‘breakdown misconceptions about Islam’ by offering tours and discussions of Islam. The Victorian Government has given the peak Muslim body $16,500 to fund the event….
The Islamic Council of Victoria told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday it received an extra $16,500 from the State Government for the open day. But the peak Muslim body received more than $95,000 in taxpayer grants in 2016-2017, an $80,000 ‘community harmony’ payout and $10,000 for a Muslim arts festival, the Herald Sun reports.
The Andrews Labor Government has long supported the Islamic community in Victoria.
The Government promised almost $1 million in 2015 to ‘support a better understanding of Islamic culture’. The government approved a $450,000 grant to the Islamic Museum of Australia in 2015, to help ‘educate the community about Islam’.
The funding was to be paid across three years, in addition to earlier capital funding of $500,000. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said Islamic bodies like the ICV fostered ‘interfaith and intercultural dialogue’.
‘On behalf of the Victorian Government I congratulate the Islamic Council of Victoria on its many achievements during the past year and offer my best wishes for the future,’ Mr Andrews said in 2015 when it handed out funding.
ICV president Mohamed Mohideen praised Premier Daniel Andrews this year for his ‘wonderful’ leadership. The Mosque Open Day received no funding from the federal government.

OK, so will Dan Andrews also be using tax-payer funding to get Victorians to visit Christian churches here? If not, why not?

And consider two recent overseas examples. The first one is an absolute shocker, but sadly, not surprising:

-1,500 acid attacks have been recorded in London since 2011
March 12, 2017
Acid attacks in Britain’s capital are soaring to new heights, new data reveals. A Freedom of Information request submitted by the Mirror shows that between 2011 and 2016, London had nearly 1,500 cases of the devastating crime, which burns the skin and leaves victims cowering from their injuries.
In the long term, the scale of the injuries are so scarring that victims can often suffer serious psychological damage as a result of the attacks. Last year alone, there were 431 such acid attacks – a rise of 170 cases from the year prior.
The figures match a general UK trend, in which the crime rate for such attacks has risen by 50% since 2005. Globally, roughly 80% of victims tend to women. Attacks are often carried out by vengeful men who have had their marriage proposals or sexual advances rebuffed.

I realise those English Anglicans can be an ornery bunch, but this is really getting out of hand. And the Baptists in Britain might need to ease up a bit as well. Or am I missing something here?

-California shooting: Three dead as gunman opens fire in downtown Fresno
April 19, 2017
Three people are dead after a gunman opened fire in downtown Fresno, California. Ashlee Wolf of Catholic Charities social service agency told the Fresno Bee newspaper the shooting happened at a bus stop near the charity.
Wolf said the charity doesn’t believe the shooter was tied to Catholic Charities. She said the organisation is working with police to provide information. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, was arrested shortly afterwards.
He said the suspect, an African-American, told police he hates white people and shouted “God is great” in Arabic before the killings. All three victims in the killings were white. A fourth person was injured in the rampage.
The shootings took place at four different locations in the downtown area of the city, were unprovoked and up to 16 rounds were fired during the hour-long rampage, authorities said. “Too early to say whether or not this involves terrorism,” Dyer was quoted as saying.

Oh good grief. Here we go again: A Muslim named Muhammad shouting Allahu Akbar kills a number of Christians in the West, and the authorities are still trying to figure out what the motive might be, and if this is an act of Islamic terrorism, let alone a hate crime! Puh-leeese. And it is the same with the clueless lamestream media.

This my friends is why Islam is winning and the West is losing. When you have a foe which has clearly stated its intent to kill you and enslave you, the first and best response is to take seriously what they have said. Pretending they are a benign and peaceful bunch only hastens and ensures our own destruction.

14 Responses to Sharia Creep Ever On the Rise

  • An Aussie Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi who is Pakistani Muslim never mentions the terrible blasphemy laws or the people who are killed and incarcerated via these laws in Pakistan but is quick to call out Australia as racist and sexist. The ‘racism’ is presumably because of her religion. I haven’t heard her condemning the sharia attacks around the world either. www.skynews.com.au/…/aust-suffers-from…

  • Thanks Bill for giving us these stories of radical Muslims in action. We don’t seem to get many of these Australian stories in the media here in W.A. I hadn’t heard about the 2 Muslim men in Melbourne nor about Premier Andrews gifts to the Muslim community. Are the Victorian Christians making any protests about his gifts?
    I watched the programme entitled “Is Australia Racist?” hosted by Ray Martin. Once again Muslims were wrongly described as a race and all depicted as peace loving people. Yet the programme deliberately put a Muslim woman in 2 provocative positions, wearing a hijab in public and attending a rally protesting about Muslim immigration.

  • This is all extremely concerning.

  • Hi Bill,
    Appreciate your stand against the rise of Sharia! But I think you are ‘missing something here’ in the acid attacks. I would read these as something most common to the sub-continent populations (Majority are Hindu’s here) and also other nations such as Uganda. As there are a lot of Indians living in the UK it would be hard to infer this as an ‘Islamic’ problem but rather a horrible practise used by people, a high proportion of them coming from south Asia. Also if you read the article the acid attacks are 71% male on male, showing these to be gang related incidents. So I would not read this as ‘Sharia’.
    All this is extremely sad no matter who does it and who is the victim. It’s shocking, sad and bad! But just not related directly to Sharia.
    Dave

  • Thanks Dave. A few things if I may. It is one example of five in my piece (and one of hundreds all up). So even if you omit that example altogether, nothing whatsoever in my article changes about the very real dangers of creeping sharia. And I did not say it was all due to Islam alone. But I also said it is unlikely to be due to Anglicans or Baptists! That others may throw around acid does not for a moment mean that Muslims do not. And if anything, you further strengthen my case which I have long made: Western nations must be much more careful in who they let in to their lands. Those ideologies and religions which have radically different values and practices than that of the West need to be much more closely examined first before people are allowed in.

  • So, the demon-inspired media and politicians are teaming up with demon-inspired Islam.
    After all, they do work for the same side.
    Which is why there is nothing logical about a feminist who supports Islam. Yet they do, in droves.

  • What worries me most is the total incapability of politicians, media et al to actually SEE the dangers in Islam. They just can’t (or won’t) see. On June 8th we Brits get pushed to the polls again for a general election this time, and there isn’t much doubt that Sharia-loving Theresa May will be confirmed as the legitimate PM….unless Divine intervention comes into play. Ironically she insists that she will defend people’s rights to practise and display their Christian faith, while at the same time keeping open borders, taking back in jihadists and declaring Islam as a “great religion”. Many of us have a good idea of what the next couple of years holds, and it isn’t good.

  • There are none so blind as those who will not see!

  • Yes Mardi, it is willful blindness.

  • And today we have an ABC News web page report on the Islamic rant, in court, of the accused Bourke St killer. Remember that incident which was neither, terror or Islam related.

  • Yes quite right John. From one news report:

    “Your honour, I wanted to tell you something,”
    “I just want to say that Aboriginal law is identical to Muslim law.”
    “All law is illegal according to the Bible and the Koran.”
    “Your honour, did you know Muslim faith is the correct faith?

  • Islam in History had a peaceful concept when Mohammed didn’t have much support in Mecca and was trying to convince the Jews that he was a Prophet re the ‘Peaceful verses’. However when Islam gained power and Mohammed moved to Medina the violent, non peaceful verses were written. There is a principal of Abrogation in Islam where the verses written at Medina take precedence over the peaceful ones written in Mecca, so Islam can appear peaceful but it’s aim is world domination. For an overview of world history from a Spiritual concept watch ‘The Fuel Project’ on You Tube, 77 x 12 minute episodes, from Genesis until today.

  • ” This is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time.” – Neville Chamberlain, September 30, 1938 [Sourced from: www.emersonkent.com/speeches/peace_in_our_time.htm ].

    Sincerity of belief is no guarantee of the truth of what is believed… Even the Prince of Peace warned that He would be the occasion of deep and bitter divisions, even amongst members of the same household. (Matt 10:34-39)

  • When cleric Andrews talks about islamic values I bet he doesn’t mention these islamic values: Quran 2:216 Fighting is obligatory for you as much as you dislike it, but you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and like a thing although it is bad for you.
    Quran 4:74 Fight for the cause of Allah, whoever fights for the cause of Allah whether he dies or triumphs on him we shall bestow a rich recompense.
    Quran 4:89 They wish that you reject Islam as they have rejected Islam, so that you all become equal with one another. So take no friendship from them till they emigrate in the way of Allah. But if they turn back from Islam take them and kill them where ever you find them, and take neither friendship nor help from them.
    Quran 5:31 Believers take neither Jews nor Christians as your friends.
    Quran 5:38 As for the thief male and female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent (punishment) from Allah.
    Quran 5:56 Believers do not seek the friendship of infidels and those that were given the book before you.(The Bible)
    Quran 8:12 Allah has revealed his will to the angels saying I shall be with you. Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels, strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers. That was because they defied Allah and his apostle. He that defies Allah and his apostle shall be sternly punished.
    Quran 9:23 Believers do not befriend your fathers or your brothers if they choose unbelief in preference to faith.
    Quran 9:73 Prophet make war on the infidels and deal rigorously with them.
    Quran 9:123 Believers make war on the infidels who dwell around you, and deal firmly with them.
    Quran 47:4 When you meet the infidels in the battlefield strike off their heads.
    Quran 33:61 Cursed where ever they are found, the infidels will be seized and put to death. Such has been the way of Allah with those who have gone before them. And you shall find no change in the ways of Allah.
