WAKE UP AUSTRALIA
“If a Government is going to import en mass a culture and religion that has nothing in comparison with the host nation isn’t it our duty to find out why?”
A very relevant question. It should be on the mind of every Australian. For decades we have been informed of women’s rights, animal’s rights, the importance of the environment, racial tolerance, and being good little world citizens.
Women’s rights? Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Saudi, Iran, Afghanistan – full of females in governmental roles, aren’t they? The women are literally in danger of being shot in some instances – not to mention being in danger of other things. They dare not so much as look sideways at their lords and masters. But that’s just the feminism angle. The environment, of course – enough said (or, enough sand?) – animal welfare? – that’s where our animals get the red carpet. Religious and racial tolerance? Nothing from here to the horizon but mosques – excepting the odd black hole, site of a bombed mosque.
Half way between Mein Kampf and, Mad. Just, Mad.
Western Democracy historically drew on the ideals of Christianity and rationality – grace, forgiveness, the brotherhood of all men irrespective of class, colour and creed. Islam drew on a paedophile, superstitious warlords’ creed – submission to the war effort, domination of all who do not join the war.
By definition no serious Islamic person can honestly swear an oath of allegiance to Australia because the Islamic creed and the Islamic attitude demands the destruction of separation of church and state and of our constitution – … the Commonwealth shall make no law for establishing any religion … .
FIND THE FACTS
From humble beginnings and through suffering and difficulty Australia has been a stable democracy, a force in the free world.
Quoting Mosab Yousef, son of a previous head of Hamas.
“What my father saw in those early days was the part of Islam that reflects love and mercy. What he didn’t see, what he perhaps has never yet allowed himself to see, is the other side of Islam. Islamic life is like a ladder, with prayer and praising Allah as the bottom rung. The higher rungs represent helping the poor and needy, establishing schools, and supporting charities. The highest rung is jihad. The ladder is tall. Few look up to see what is at the top. …….. Traditional Muslims stand at the foot of the ladder, living in guilt for not really practicing Islam. At the top are fundamentalists, the ones you see in the news killing women and children for the glory of the god of the Qur’an. Moderates are somewhere in between. A moderate Muslim is actually more dangerous than a fundamentalist, however, because he appears to be harmless, and you can never tell when he has taken that next step toward the top. Most suicide bombers began as moderates. The day my father first put his foot on the bottom rung of the ladder, he could never have imagined how far from his original ideals he would eventually climb. And thirty-five years later, I would want to ask him: Do you remember where you started? You saw all those lost people, your heart broke for them, and you wanted them to come to Allah and be safe. Now suicide bombers and innocent blood? Is this what you set out to do? But speaking to one’s father about such things is not done in our culture. And so he continued on that dangerous path.” Mosab Hassan Yousef, 2010: Son of Hamas (285pp); Tyndale House Publishers Inc., p.11,12.
Should any cult with these properties, passing itself off as genuine religion, ever be given a moment’s space or credibility in any civilized nation? But isn’t there hope here? If the son of a high ranking terrorist supporter can escape religious fanaticism and find a higher ideal, so can others.
Wikipedia comment on Section 116 of the Australian Constitution.
S.116. “The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth.”
The section sits in Chapter V of the Constitution, which deals with the states of Australia. However, Section 116 does not apply to the states. Each state has its own constitution, and only Tasmania’s has a provision similar to Section 116. Commentators attribute the erroneous location of Section 116 to a drafting oversight caused by the weariness of the committee charged with finalising the draft Constitution.
The Constitution was the product of a series of constitutional conventions in the 1890s. The issues of religious freedom and secularism were not prominent in the convention debates, which focused on the economic and legislative powers of the proposed Commonwealth parliament. The first draft of Section 116, approved by the Melbourne Convention of 1891, would have prohibited the states from passing laws prohibiting the free exercise of religion. The Commonwealth was not mentioned because it was assumed that the Commonwealth parliament would have no power to make such laws. At the Melbourne Convention of 1897, Victorian delegate H. B. Higgins expressed concern about this assumption and moved to expand the provision to cover the Commonwealth as well as the states. The amendment was initially defeated, but Higgins later succeeded in having the eventual version of Section 116 adopted by the convention in a 25–16 vote. Higgins feared opposition to the provision from convention delegates concerned that the provision would impede the states’ legislative powers, so the version passed by the convention did not mention the states.
The proposed inclusion of Section 116 in the Constitution was the subject of some dissent in the 1897 Melbourne Convention and the final convention in 1898. Protestant churches in New South Wales argued that the Constitution should state that divine providence is the “ultimate source of law”, while convention delegates John Quick and Patrick Glynn moved to have God explicitly recognised in the Constitution. The Seventh-day Adventist Church campaigned for a strict separation of church and state, being concerned that the Commonwealth might prohibit its members from working on Sundays. Both sides to some extent achieved their objectives: Section 116 was approved by the final convention, while Glynn successfully moved for the symbolic mention of “Almighty God” in the preamble to the British statute that was to contain the Constitution. The Constitution was then approved by popular referendums in each of the six colonies and took effect on 1 January 1901 (the colonies thus became the states of Australia).

Islam, and comparable mindsets, if taken seriously by adherents, are not personal religions, any more than militant Nazism and Communism. Islam is a forced pattern of outward behaviour, combined with reverence to a proposed God who frowns on people if they do not conform to sanctimonious regulations — and rewards them for despising, deceiving, and even killing those who will not comply. Paradise in Islam’s view is furthered by taking over the world for this God. Christianity ideally has to do with a loving God who has already provided a sacrifice. Islam and other deceptions (including some linked to Christianity) have to do with an angry God demanding sacrifice. Women tend to be amongst those first called upon to sacrifice; unbelievers and Jews especially are a better sacrifice; islamic government needs this angry God at the head, to enable a full sacrifice. The only way to interpret S.116 as it was intended is to put it into action. a) Immediately, begin a public education program so that the public knows — public education in a limited but effective way regarding Islam, its teachings, its history, its outcomes. Include unbiased recent history of the Middle East, especially the fact that Palestinians of varied ethnicity and personal leanings had first opportunity to set up democracy where Israel now stands. Fanatical Islamists destroyed liberal democracy and free thought with the knife, the bullet, and the bomb. The non-jewish Palestinians proved incapable of governing even themselves – before the few Jews in their midst managed to begin a free state. As Israel fights for democracy today, so Australians will fight for democracy tomorrow, should Islam or any similar pervasive, domineering mindset gain ascendancy. Australians should be informed of the naked facts.b) Screen all prospective immigrants with special attention to Islamic background. c) Revoke the citizenship of those who obviously deny the oath of allegiance to Australia. d) Encourage Islamists to emigrate to a country where they can honestly swear an oath of allegiance. e) De-classify Islam and any similar pervasive life-control programs from the status of religion. f) Give Australian citizens and Australian institutions complete legal safety should they choose to refuse to give any room or credence to morally nonsensical islamic beliefs – food preparation, mosques, washing codes, and so on. Note, declining alcohol and being adequately and modestly clothed is not morally nonsensical. g) Close down any institution preaching religious racism, religious genocide, paedophilia, woman beating, etc. – as allowed by the Koran and/or practiced by Mohammed & others.
