The excuse of ‘being offended’ is wearing thin – continued ‘hurt-feelings’ whining stokes ‘Islamophobia’ much more than jihadist terrorism.
Terror-attacks are committed by a few, whereas the tantrum-cr%p is ostensibly community based.
So it is offensive to a minority – how small a minority?
I’m damned sure there are plenty of decent Muslims who don’t appreciate the way fanatics antagonise their fellow-citizens. From whom, exactly, did the Defence Ministry take the advice that led them to disown that beautiful badge, which seems not to ‘offend’ patriotic Australians.
It turns out Turnbull’s kick in the teeth for patriots follows the appointment of an imam to the Religious Advisory Committee to the Services in June, an appointment endorsed by…
Wait for it! The Grand Mufti of Australia! And he’s not Australian at all, but Egyptian. He should have no say in approving or disapproving anything to do with Australia.
The latest nonsense crawlery from Oz is a perfect example of grovelling obeisance to people who knew, or should have known, for sure, when they chose to live in Australia, that the Commonwealth had and still has a fine martial tradition.
Anyone can join up and serve, regardless of creed or colour. Oz is majority Christian, so the threatened badge recognises that, but Jewish chaplains don’t have to wear it. They, so far as I know, have their own.
Why not give Muslim chaplains their own cap badge too, so each faith has their own insignia?
I doubt Tony Abbott would have put up with this PC cr%p.
It’s hard to disagree with former army major Bernard Gaynor, Australian Liberty Alliance candidate, when he asserts that the grovel move is a prime example of ‘political correctness destroying our military heritage!”
And speaking of that very-much-less-than-grand ‘Mufti,’
- The Mangy Mufti should be taken to the nearest airport with his passport and tooth-brush and his pretentious sectarian title and booted out of Australia.
Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, while dismissing anti-terror strategies as ineffective, said the focus should be on racism, Islamophobia, duplicitous foreign policies and military intervention. https://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/a/30113151/australia-wont-close-borders-bishop/
Well, he certainly has some personal insights into terrorism. He was standing side-by-side with a Hamas fanatic in Gaza when he declared –
“I am pleased to stand on the land of jihad to learn from its sons.”
- The old swine also objected when Tony Abbott wanted “advocating terrorism” to be banned by law – on that occasion the MM obligingly gave us a brief glimpse into what goes on among the enemy within.
- He said that such a reform risked snaring any ‘clerics’ who “advocated the duty of a Muslim to defend his land.”
What duty, and what land?
Decent people have surely heard enough traitorous cr#p from his sort, ratbags whose duty to Queen and Country goes up in smoke if there’s a quarrel with foreign powers populated by those that share their creed.
Treason-talk like that fertilises Islamophobia around the world. The cur’s comments on foreign policy and military intervention would not be out of place at a conclave of the hate-gang Hizbut Tahrir.
Oh, yeah, Mufti Mangy reckons those caliphofascists are ‘actually in favour of free speech.’
- Yeah, right.
- HT worldwide have made it crystal-clear they DETEST democracy.
Abbot should have deported the lot, including MM..
Not a chance. I haven’t heard Mealy-Mouth Malcolm (MMM, not to be confused with the above MM!) even use the correct term – death-cult – for ISIS.
If he has, please tell me. I’m more than ready to amend my statement.
But more and more Australians are learning the nature of the beast. Mangy Mufti-style disloyalty should be an automatic one-way ticket out of Australia – and every civilised nation.
And not one single aspect of the national heritage should be discarded to placate people who put sectarian solidarity before their proper allegiance to Australia.
