"It was an outrage," NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione told reporters in Sydney today. "To see a young child with a placard thrust in his hand calling for the beheading of a person is simply something I cannot comprehend. It's just not what we teach our children."
Welcome to Sydney, Australia, where Islam is introducing its version of family values to the country. Aren't they so cute?
Australian officials are bewildered and outraged by this adorable display of a Muslim family teaching its children to kill non-Muslims.
NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione says he was outraged to see children holding signs that called for the beheading of anti-Islamists at a Sydney protest. "It was an outrage," he told reporters in Sydney today. "To see a young child with a placard thrust in his hand calling for the beheading of a person is simply something I cannot comprehend. It's just not what we teach our children."
But Andrew fails to see that it is what Muslims teach their children. And Muslims may hold Australian citizenship, but they are not Australians. They are Pakistanis, Indonesians, Malaysians or Lebanese who happen to live in Australia and hold local citizenship. Their allegiance is to the Religion of Peacefully Beheading People.
The Muslim family is not doing anything wrong by their standards. Islam, from Mohammed's day, killed people who offended him. This is their religion and Australia, like America, Canada and Europe, is going to have to come to terms with that.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard says the violence seen at a Sydney protest against an anti-Islam film has no place in Australia. Six police officers were injured during clashes outside the US consulate yesterday.
‘‘I absolutely condemn the violence that we saw yesterday,’’ Ms Gillard told reporters in Brisbane where she addressed the Queensland ALP state conference. She said the anti-Islam film, which was made in the US, was ‘‘truly repulsive’’ but ‘‘there is never any excuse for violent behaviour’’.
‘‘To anybody who wants to replicate that behaviour today, I just want to say very strongly that this kind of conduct has no place on the streets of our country,’’ the prime minister said.
But it does. If Islam is going to be in Australia then Salafists beating Sydney cops and tykes holding up KILL THE INFIDELS signs is going to be part of Australian life.
Communications Minister Stephen Conroy has called for YouTube to consider taking down a video that ridicules the Prophet Mohammed which sparked a violent protest in Sydney yesterday.
Conroy joins Obama and probably every Euro politician in calling for censorship. As if the riots are about the video, rather than about the power of violence.
But in response to the violence in Sydney, and to similar outbreaks across the world, Foreign Minister Bob Carr said he had asked all Australian diplomatic posts to “redouble their efforts” in closing the gap between Islamic and western societies....
“I have asked Australia’s diplomatic posts around the world to redouble their efforts to bridge the gap between civilizations to encourage the overlap of cultures and the dialogue between faiths,” the Foreign Minister said.
Poor Bob. Doesn't he see that the civilizations are already overlapping? When there are children holding signs calling for beheadings in Sydney, then the civilizations have already overlapped and he doesn't like the results.
NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell said he was “horrified” by the street battles and clashes with police yesterday. “We’ve got 200 different nationalities in this city but what we saw yesterday was the unacceptable face of multiculturalism,” Mr O’Farrell said.
Why not call it what it is, the Muslim face of multiculturalism... because Islam is not multicultural. It is for one culture, its culture, and for beheading all other cultures.
Tony Abbott said the ugly scenes did not fairly reflect the Islamic people of Australia. The Opposition Leader said newcomers to Australia were not expected to surrender their heritage, but were expected to surrender their hatreds.
But what if heritage is indivisible from hate? What if religion commands you to hate and kill to protect your identity? What then?
How do you deal with people whose family values can be seen displayed in the lovely outing above? Is there any place for such people in Australia, America or Canada? Sure, so long as we understand that as a result, there will eventually no longer be any place for anyone else. Just Muslims, their hatreds, their holy books and their way of life.
Nationals senator Barnaby Joyce said politicians should speak out to protect Australia “from what we might become years down the track”.
“It’s not xenophobic to ask what is in your national interest and what values we support and what actions we will condone,” Senator Joyce told the Nationals’ federal conference in Canberra.
No, it's sane and sanity has become a rare commodity.
