    Petition – De-Secularisation of Mississauga, Ontario? 


    Noise doesn’t bother me that much.

    Nothing much bothers me in this hot and populous city.

    I have an English friend who does get bothered, so much that she moved out of her apartment near Rasuna Said.

    Because of the noise from several mosques in the vicinity.

    The problem in Jakarta has come up frequently over the years I have lived here.

    Even Vice-President Kalla, a very active and serious Muslim, felt obliged to point out that a bit of consideration might be in order.

    Unfortunately, unless things have changed, and I doubt that very much, the local authorities won’t use noise abatement regulations against  mosques…

    …which is of course outrageous, but outrage is comparative.

    Let’s not ignore what befell an inoffensive old Muslim who dared to complain in the extremely backward, intolerant Indonesian province of Aceh…

    ‘Immoral Activities – Sitting in Coffee Shops Laughing and Talking…’ 

    Islamist Inquisition in Aceh – ” Minority Religious Creed ‘Worse Than Tsunami!’ “

    Aceh’s Mad Mullah – ‘Dancing is EVIL – It Involves Body Movements!’

    …a dreadful place, where sectarian savages threatened to kill the old guy, for asking that the local mosque make just a little less noise…

    Aceh – Muslim Seeks Quieter Mosques, Bullied Into Silence, after ‘Death Threats!’ 

    …which reminds me of a more recent outrage…

    Jackboot! Woman Jailed For Complaint About Mosque Noise! 

    …the poor woman in Sumatra, whose imprisonment must have sent a sensation of horrified dismay through every decent citizen of every creed in this fascinating archipelago.

    So when my Canadian friends in Mississauga, Ontario, decide whether to sign this petition or not…

    Listening to a “call for prayer” could be done on the TV, radio, or phone applications….

    Imagine if every religious institution or any institution wanted to broadcast whatever it is that gives them comfort, out loud for the whole neighbourhood….

    You need to immediately rescind this decision in order to allow all of the citizens of Mississauga practice their own religious practices either in the place of worship or in their own homes.

    …they should think very carefully.

    So I Criticise Muslim Clerics? Now It’s A Jewish Rabbi’s Turn! 


    I have often criticised Muslim clerics harshly, and there have been a few Christian clergy in my firing line too, not least the Pope!

    Francis’ Tantrum-Pandering – FTP? 

    So today it’s time to hammer a  Jewish rabbi in Australia, who’s been telling us to go easy on child-molestors.

    Predators and Child Molestors

    • ==============
    • People who are no longer abusing children shouldn’t have to feel like the scum of the earth for the rest of their lives.

    On the face of it, this guy, Rabbi Yosef Feldman, sounds reasonable. If people repent ( genuinely – which is a lot less frequent than mendaciously!) there are possibilities for forgiveness.  

    It’s arguable. To offend against a child in such a manner really ought to make the perp feel like the scum of the earth. Certainly, that’s how most people see them.

    But okay, I get the idea.

    Maybe this Jewish man, who, it turns out, is a significant figure in New South Wales, former President of that state’s Rabbinical Council, is talking Christian doctrine, forgiveness may be bestown on others. So, arguably, on oneself.

    But then he goes on to assert that knowledge of the community’s compassion would encourage other pedophiles to give up on their evil depredations.

    Oh really?

    But the reporter here, unlike many, was well-informed  – when you read the whole report, it’s a bit like looking through a glass darkly. What’s Rabbi Yosef Feldman’s real agenda?

    In July 2011, he ‘issued a directive’ telling  Jews that it was ‘not against Jewish law‘ to report child abuse to ‘secular authorities.’.

    I should bloody well hope not!

    And if it WERE against Jewish law, that should no more inhibit decent Jews than shariah law should forestall decent Muslims from doing the right and proper thing e.g. writing wills that give equal shares to good daughters and good sons, or a bigger share to good daughters and zilch to waster sons.

    But then Feldman, just a day later, U-turned on honourable citizenship – he emailed a Sydney Jewish group, discouraging them from issuing a further statement encouraging people to report abuse. He said a child abuser’s ‘life and family were being ruined now…for no good reason.’  https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/26232226/rabbi-calls-for-leniency-for-pedophiles/

    NO GOOD REASON!?! I guess he has no children of his own, or he might have found a wiser way to word his exhortation to irresponsibility.

    His excuse for that disgraceful message is just a load of codswallop.  You can read his cr@p via the link.

    But since I often urge decent Muslims here to speak up against demented ‘scholars,’ it’s only fair to urge decent Jews in Oz to put VAST distance between themselves and Feldman.
