Islam is at War with Us; the Terrorists are Following Islam to the Letter

Following the recent murderous events in Brussels, it’s time we realised Australia is facing a clear and present danger. Our political leaders and intelligentsia are committing a serious disservice to the people of this country by ignoring reality and refusing to acknowledge there is a problem with Islam.
Allow me to mention three examples. Last year, Numan Haider, an 18 year old known terror suspect, was shot dead after stabbing a Victorian police officer. We witnessed the black flag of jihad proudly displayed by an Islamic jihadist at the Lindt Café window. And we saw police worker Curtis Cheng gunned down in the streets of Parramatta in broad daylight.
Make no mistake, Islam is at war with us
Events in Brussels confirm it. It‘s not the first attack in Europe and it most certainly will not be the last. In January 2015 the offices of Charlie Hebdo saw 12 people massacred, for a cartoon depiction of Mohammed in a satirical magazine. In November 2015 the Bataclan Theatre and other sites across Paris were attacked, leaving 130 people dead and more injured.
The mayhem and destruction is designed to instil fear and terror. However, terror is a tactic. You cannot fight a tactic. In order to address the issue, we have to call a spade a spade and recognize that the tenets of Islam are the source of inspiration for Islamic jihadists.
Islamic jihadists constantly let us know what inspires their actions, by quoting passages from the Koran. It is condescending of us to presume they are wrong and they don’t understand Islamic doctrine. Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the leader of Islamic State, has a BA, an MA, and a PhD in Islamic studies.
Islam is the common denominator. Islam drives Islamic State, Boko Haram, AlQaeda, Al Shabab, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas, JamaateIslami, the jihadists who flock to Syria from Australia, and those recently arrested for plotting terrorist attacks on our home soil. They are not following a perverse or misinterpreted version of Islam. They are following Islam to the letter.
Our leaders would like us to believe otherwise. Over the next few days we will see apologists for Islam blaming the Brussels attacks on everything from Western society to America’s foreign policy, lone wolves, mental health issues and last but not least disenfranchised youth. The words Islam and Muslim will never be mentioned.
On 16th February 2016, Malcolm Turnbull’s new assistant minister for multiculturalism Craig Laundy said the vast majority of inflammatory opinions about Islam and Muslims came from people who were “not well informed” and that their views were “wrong”.
Malcolm Turnbull, on a recent visit to the Islamic Council of Victoria, was quoted as saying to a Muslim group, “You are an integral part of an Australian family that’s bound together by the shared values of freedom democracy and the rule of law.”
Craig Laundy and Malcolm Turnbull make the mistake of failing to recognize the distinction between Muslims and Islam. It goes without saying that there are law abiding, respectful, and decent Muslims in our community. They are law abiding and respectful not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam.
Islam is anathema to everything Western civilization stands for. Regardless of what Mr Turnbull said, Islam is not compatible with freedom, democracy, or the rule of law.
What can we do?
It’s simple. First and foremost we have to recognize there is a problem. Until we do, nothing will change. We have to call a spade a spade and speak out. Not allowing free and open discussion encourages the divisive and oppressive nature of Islam to change our cultural and social norms.
We have to elect leaders with the courage to acknowledge that it is Islamic doctrine that motivates the murderous attacks on our society. We need leaders who will provide practical solutions to stop this insidious political ideology from taking root in Australia. Veiled in religion, this ideology uses violence to distract and confuse us while the real work is done from within.
The last words heard by the passengers on American Airlines flight 11 before being steered into the Twin Towers in September 2001 were delivered by Mohamed Atta, the Al Qaeda hijacker, who said: “Stay quiet and you will be ok….”
The Lindt siege inquest, recently revealed the final words of Man Haron Monis after murdering café manager Tori Johnson “Don’t move, everything will be fine.”
If we continue to say and do nothing for the sake of political correctness and fear of offending, we are complicit in the demise of Western civilization. We have a duty of care to future generations.
Last year the Australian government agreed to admit 27,250 refugees as permanent residents, mainly from Islamic countries. If only one percent of this intake follows the teachings of Islam and Mohammed to the letter, then Australians are in danger. It is only a matter of time before we see attacks similar to the ones in Brussels and Paris on Australian soil.
