Congenital Racism and anti-Muslim Sentiment

Congenital Racism and anti-Muslim Sentiment

Australia, Australian values and Psyche, Bikie Gang to Corporate Media and Government Thugs, Geriatric Left and so called anti-Semitism and Australian Reporter are a drop in the ocean regarding to Congenital Racism and anti-Muslim Sentiment in Australia.

Australia, Australian values

and Psyche

Australian Values are a wonderful addition to the beauty of a Lucky Country.

CAPTAIN LALOR, THEY'RE OURS, THE ENEMY, GALLIPOLI, GALLIPOLI and Bull Shit Nationalism failed to wake up Australia. Even In Pictures: Massacre of Gazan Children failed to bring some sense of justice or compassion in Australia! Morons & White Trash are ruling the airwaves, radio, television, newspapers. Other demented leftist groups are also.

Flood, drought and bush fire are part of the Australian landscape. Similarly and unfortunately the lighting of bushfires, “looking after mates” and the looting of flood and fire victims once again unfortunately has also become an Australian tradition in some quarters. As a result they say, "you loot – we shoot".

Successive Australian governments are trigger happy about terrorism and going out of their way to make enemies around the world. Yet not one Australians died in Australia due to terrorism. However this years' Victorian bushfire alone killed around 200. Most of the people detained and accused for lighting bush fires are not Arabs or Muslims. No Arab or Muslims have been reported as doing so. Yet, some sections of the media have found out websites belonging to Muslim groups, "urging Muslims to use bushfire as a part of Jihad"!

The taxi mafia has been causing all kinds of trouble in this country while they are very good at shifting any and all blame onto workers and migrants. Last week one of the mafia wrote an editorial in "Meter" magazine where the editor made serious efforts to blame migrant and workers for every ill of society

This week we are hearing an Indian and Pakistani taxi drivers respectively raped their passengers at Black town and Manly! In this critical moment I will urge everyone to have a look at Vilification of Taxi Drivers and Ethnic Groups. One reliable person told me, "the driver was from Somalia"!

Independent Commission Against Corruption could be used as a reference point of the Sydney Taxi Industry or even Australia! TAXI TRIBUNAL THAT LACKS TRANSPARENCY and Rats in The Ranks could be a good start too.

Bikie Gang to Corporate Media and Government Thugs

Bikie Gangs are not the flavor of the month. Originally fairly affluent people used to own bikes and they used to hang around, socialize and where appropriate flirt with others. World Wars, Korean and Vietnam Wars produced many shell shock and drug addict soldiers. Eventually Bike Clubs ended up with Bikie Gangs when the criminal element disposed to the objectives of money, power and fun (sex) emerged. In the pursuit of those objectives they needed money. To get money they got involved with drugs and other nasty enterprises. Surely, no one would say, “they are a kind and good people”. However, in reality they are not worse than many big businesses and governments.

Original bikie gang members in the USA, Canada and Australia used to be from Anglo-Saxon stock. Then with the various gangs expanding and many breaking off to form their own separate clubs and chapters within those new clubs there was an intake of members who had as their back Ground and their origins from some European countries i.e. Greek, Italian, Yugoslav. Nowadays many patch holding, one percenter bike gangs draw their members from those with an Arab background. i.e. Lebanese, Assyrians etc who have become attracted these gangs. After all this one percenter bikie movement attracts and stems from a background of aspiring, working class and often criminally disposed persons and that includes some with an Arab background.

Legend and general talk on the streets says the Arabs joined the bikie gangs for their own protection as they are one of the target groups. The islander groups are also mingling with Arab groups. It appears they are getting aggressive and winning. Some analysts suggest, ongoing and strong Anti-Arab policies and campaigns may have pushed them to be daring.

In Australia Arab and Muslim bashing is the most spectacular “sport“ in town. Due to the current bikie wars some shock jocks have intensified their attack on Arabs and Muslims in general .

Although Arab bikies and Muslim bikies or any other bikies for that matter do not follow any particular race, religion or culture! In fact they follow their own religion. Even some bikies are so poor they can not afford to buy a bike or trade drugs. They usually associate in groups that for all appearances look very similar to recognized gangs and at times bash bouncers when the opportunity arrives! They do so often because they are angry at those club and pub bouncers due their prejudicial treatment towards them.

Thanks to Osama bin Laden and the so called war on terror! Many good governments are taking away our civil, industrial and other rights under the guise of protecting us. It is like locking us up to protect us. Many big corporations are also jumping on this bandwagon!

You see it when you are using the Sydney International Airport Terminal where they are engaging in the time worn practice of manipulation and control by charging us extra money under the pretence of providing extra safety and security! This extra money is divided between some private companies and government. In reality they are taking this money under false pretences or extortion if you like as they failed to improve safety or security in the first place. They also do not have any intention to upgrade safety or essential services such as toilet facilities and the ongoing maintenance of such but would rather be engaged in the wrestling down of taxi drivers and arresting them or preferably having others arrest or penalize them for scratching their bums with the wrong finger or at the wrong time.

Many examples suggest they have downgraded security and safety and services. Some say they are planning to import any type of worker or any standard of contractor, agency or company even to the point of employing the “Taliban” to “protect“ Sydney Airport as a cost cutting measure! Yet, they are charging us big money and engaging in manipulation and control to satisfy their unquenchable lust and greed as well as maintain domination and power over us in a manner not unlike the tactics employed by some outlaw bikie gangs.

Therefore, I find them all functioning and operating in a similar manner. They are not different. They are simply corporate thugs dressed in suits and ties.

Geriatric Left and so called anti-Semitism

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Today, after the demonstration I have attended a discussion forum where I have asked the question, “no one would be crucified should one dares to denounce Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, communism, nazism, socialism or any other isms! However, how is that in seven European countries they will put you in jail for questioning the ‘holocaust’?

They are doing so while an Israeli holocaust in the occupied Palestine is going unchallenged in our time and in front of you and me!!! Therefore my question is why do we have such a blatant and monumental double standard and hypocrisy?” A few amongst the ‘lefty crowed’ was misty eyed and they claimed to have detected the apparent smell of anti-Semitism! Nonetheless they urged us all there ever onwards and put forth that the answer to solve all of our problems was through Marxism and Socialism. At the end of the meeting I asked them to publicise these historical, valid maps I had with me so as to educate the populace through their own publications (links shown below). They promised to me to that they would do so. Let’s wait and see.

First Jewish colony in Palestine, 1878

Major Arab Towns and Zionist Settlements in Palestine, 1881-1914

Landownership in Palestine and the UN Partition Plan, 1947

Palestinian Villages Depopulated in 1948 and 1967

Wye Memorandum, 1998

Sharm-Esh-Sheikh, (Projected from Memorandum), 1999

Projection of the West Bank Final Status Map presented by Israel, Camp David, July 2000

Collection of maps on the 'Apartheid Wall' in the West Bank and Jerusalem, with a map for each major city (Jenin, Tulkarm, Nablus, Qalqilya, Salfit, Tubas, Ramallah, Jericho, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Hebron)

Australian Reporter

On Monday (November 03, 2008) she was delivering her second or third hand report concerning an Iranian girl’s mistreatment by her own family to Sydney’s Nazi Shock Jock Jim Ball of radio 2UWe. 2UE used to be the number one radio station in Sydney. However, their star recruit, the alleged child molester Alan Jones went to 2 GB and now they managed to increase ratings of 2GB by inciting against Arabs and Muslims. To your amazement, 2UE is also following Alan Jones’s style.

However, Jim Ball is very good at concocting stories against Arabs and Muslims and Australian law sanctions prejudice and bigotry with open arms.

Would you believe the “reporter” in question is an abject failure! Her own husband abandoned her longtime ago and now she is a “coin and sperm collector”. Even her own so called father abandoned her own mother and she hates him too. But hang on, her own 20 years old daughter is a drug addict and full of miserable stories. Yet people like her got the audacity to give lecture to others based on three generations of failure, prejudice and bigotry because she must be superior than others!

You Can’t Have a One Way Ticket

You Can’t Have a One Way Ticket

Anyone and everyone got endless right to insult, attack and advise Islam as well as and call for reform (?) while no on is allowed to criticise others? Why is it so?

To be added

Salman Rushdie to Tanvir Ahmed

Salman Rushdie, Ershad Manji, Ayaan Hirshi Ali, and Norma Khouri are like Tanvir Ahmed! Generally speaking they are Israel Centric in nature. All of them found their meal ticket by insulting and attacking Islam and Arabs! They do not have gumption to scrutinize Israel and Zionists!

They condemn Nazis but embrace Zio-Nazis.

No one is telling other religious people what to do or not to do. However, every Tom, Dick and Harry loves to tell Muslim people what to do and not to do all of the time. Even, they are hiring people like Tanvir Ahmed, Ershad Manji, Ayaan Hirshi Ali, and Norma Khouri as spokespersons of Islamic society without any consent whatsoever!

I bet Tanvir Ahmed and The Sydney Morning Herald won’t dare to suggest the Hindus to eat cow and Jews to eat pork!

In conclusion, Tanvir Ahmed and The Sydney Morning Herald have reiterated the overgrowing ant-Muslim conspiracies in Australia. Although some other people have suggested to me, “this misguided Tanvir Ahmed is suffering from cultural inferiority and he is overwhelmed by blatant anti-Muslim propaganda”.

Madhusudan to Tanvir Ahmed

Further to Christmas, Curry and Many Faiths, one eyed The Sydney Morning Herald failed to publish my contribution below about Tanvir Ahmed article!

I suppose Tanvir Ahmed is not familiar with Michael Madhusudan Dutt of Sagardari on the bank of Kopothakho River, a village in Keshobpur Upozila, Jessore District, East Bengal (now in Bangladesh).

I also suspect Tanvir Ahmed does not know Rabindranath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Sharath Chandra Chatapdya, … .

These great identities, with their distinctive styles, managed to expose millions of wrong doings by Hindu religion. Luckily, despite disproportionate propaganda, Islam does not need identities of those caliber and ferocities of that nature to reform itself!

Right now, we can ignore problems of Judaism and Christianity and try to understand Tanvir’s vulnerability. Before him Salman Rushdie, Ershad Manji, Ayaan Hirshi Ali, and Norma Khouri were aided and abetted by the Zionists! All of them are proven frauds!! Their claims are based on false and fabricated stories. Yet, basing on these fraudsters and falsified innuendos millions of anti-Muslim articles have been written, movies and documentaries were made all over the world.

Muslim and Arab bashing is the most popular sport in the town. For example people like Bat Yeor, Melanie Phillips, Prof. Raphael Israeli and many more Zionists/"Jews/Israelis are borrowing entire chapters and verses from Adolph Hitler's Mein Kampf against Arabs and Muslims and then they express their astonishment in German Poll Support Nazi Rule! A commotion like Greek Historian sentenced for 'Holocaust' denial does not attract the fundamental question of free speech like this question too!

Irrational Animal Lovers and Good Australian Muslims are under the rudder. However Jihad to Bolidan and 72 Virgins to Nothing are deliberately twisted by them. Islam Watch Watch or Stop the Blame Game is not their game either! Probably that's why John Howard – The Lying Son of A Bitch became the most popular Prime Minister of Australia at the back of fear and terror, prejudice and bigotry! However, one must know Why Muslims get 72 Virgins and nothing for others.

Remember, Ikhtiyar Uddin Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khilji managed to conquer Bengal with only 18 horseman! The conquest was successful not because of force but due to beauty of Islam.

Would you believe the conquest of Bengal was bloodless too!

Christmas, Curry and Many Faiths

Today I went to The Sydney Morning Herald website and searched for Tanvir Ahmed. The result was amazing! Many terrorists and terrorist related news appeared in the horizon. However, the real Tanvir Ahmed article I was looking for failed to turn up!!

After reading the article and related comments I found prejudice, bigotry and ignoramus galore. I won’t ask:

  1. Who Is a Semite?

  2. Do You Know Who Is a True Jew? and
  3. What is a Judeo-Christian culture?

Asking above questions may push me at the edge of “anti-Semite” boundary without any valid reasons or grounds!

However, no one can ignore the fact that:

1. Jesus (PBHUH) is an exalted person and revered by Muslims.

2. The Jews conspired to murder him at Jerusalem and later his brother James at Rome.

You see, the “Jews” do not even accept Jesus (PBUH) and they insult mother Marry. Yet, Blind Australians and Australian Media look up for Judeo-Christian culture and despise Muslims without any corroborative reasons or grounds in the first place.

I suppose the quest of Tanvir Ahmed must go deeper. Eating beacon and egg is neither Christianity nor teachings of Jesus Christ.

Christmas, curry and many faiths

December 24, 2009

Comments 26

Growing up as Muslim, I never enjoyed Christmas. I was surrounded by rituals, events and hype about something I was told not to believe in. Friends rang my doorbell early on Christmas morning ready to show off their presents. I gawked at their bike or remote-control car but then quietly retreated to my room, wondering when television would graduate from the singing of carols and uplifting stories of sacrifice to being filled with hours of cricket.

As with Palestinians and Iraqis, I felt humiliated and dispossessed by an overbearing show of Western force, outgunned by gigantic Christmas trees and ostentatious decorations.

Nor did reassurance from my parents help. They reminded me that I received presents during our Muslim ''Christmas'', known as Eid, which was also filled with gluttony and, at least in countries that were majority Muslim, crass commercialism.

I was asked to recognise that our community had its own Santa Claus-like figures, armies of long-bearded old men who kept odd hours and retained tabs on who had been naughty or nice. They were known as sheikhs or mullahs. Their presents ranged from fatwas to obscure references to the Koran.

I became resentful about Christmas. Having no outlet to channel my anger, I quietly withdrew to my sporting memorabilia. I dreamt of a world where I could belong, eating bacon and swilling alcohol without fear of retribution.

My younger sister was more aggressive and insistent on celebrating Christmas. Suddenly our home was filled with trees and decorations, tinsel, streamers and even a strange herb called mistletoe. Small presents appeared in our house, although they rarely survived until Christmas morning to be opened.

The food didn't change. There were no Christmas turkeys or mince pies. We continued to eat my mother's parathas, curry and a lassi-like drink that was meant to be like egg-nog, but laced with turmeric.

Given Islam followed a lunar calendar, there were several years when the major Muslim celebration coincided with Christmas, much like the Jewish Hannukah does each year. This was a time of particular joy, for it allowed us to assert our religious festival more forcefully, to trumpet our minority identity in a multicultural society. It was ''Chanukeid'' season.

Some Muslims even began giving greeting cards and decorating their houses. The miracle of the virgin birth was replaced with the miracle of Muhammad splitting the moon. I lobbied for something equivalent to midnight Mass at the local mosque but the clerics rejected it vehemently.

They argued that the mimicking of Christian celebrations was a capitulation to the dominant culture. I told them it was tough showing off to friends about praying five times a day.

Surveys among American Jews have shown that those who are most concerned with assimilation are most likely to go all out for Hanukkah, to entice their kids to keep the faith. This was also true for Muslims, an example of a competitive marketplace in the realm of religious festivals.

The more we attempted to mimic Christmas, the more it became clear Christmas had evolved into a secular celebration as much as a religious one.

Many households of non-Christian faiths such as mine adopt the customs of the day, from Christmas trees with presents for the children to taking the opportunity to have a family get-together. Strict Jews and Muslims treat the day as any other but most welcome the public display of religion in a culture that shuns the outward expression of faith. The celebration of family and community is a universal aspiration.

The degree to which Christmas should be emphasised in a multicultural society may be contentious to some, yet voices of protest rarely emanate from non-Christians. I am particularly amused by the occasions when well-meaning folk have corrected themselves to call Christmas the ''holiday season'' to appear more inclusive for my benefit.

Since Coca-Cola first adopted in its advertising a bearded man in a red and white suit, Jesus has long been supplanted by Santa. Father Christmas may be a jolly figure of secular commercialism but he is arguably more accessible for disparate groups.

I have since married a Christian, caving in to my cultural oppressors. We do not take religion too seriously. I have grown more comfortable sitting next to the Christmas ham. I still receive few presents and when I do, they are usually socks or ties. I have yet to wake my friends to show these off. I await the cricket to begin the following day just as eagerly.

Strange and shallow article... you seem more focused on the wrapping paper rather than the actual meaning of any of the celebrations you described

Sarah | Berala - December 23, 2009, 7:39AM

This is actually a much bigger phenomenon here in Britain where there is much more debate about how Muslims should behave in Christmas. I have a number of Pakistani friends and they say it can become quite heated when debating issues like buying presents or having decorations in Xmas. But I agree with the author's sentiment that the celebration has essentially become a secular one- which is actually more inclusive. I didn't think it was shallow at all- it was funny!

Billy | London - December 23, 2009, 8:08AM

You sound conflicted, Tanveer. Why is it that Islam seems to have the most problems in coexisting with other cultures?

Oppressed? Don't make me laugh. I'm oppressed at having to read this endless stream of complaint from interlopers of intolerant cultures.

Paul | Ashbury - December 23, 2009, 8:18AM

Shallow? Really? I would look deeper. Once you remove the wrapping paper it is apparent that the message is not about the meaning of the celebrations but that faith brings eople together regardless of religion.

Navig8 - December 23, 2009, 8:31AM

Sarah, get over yourself. To my mind you are strange and shallow with your criticism of this persons reminiscences. In so many ways I have similar memories of a childhood spent in a foster home.

shortfatbaldguy | Blue Mountains - December 23, 2009, 8:37AM

I think its sad that your family was not able to strengthen its own religious beliefs and bowed to your and your sister's pressure to be like the majority around you. I myself am a Muslim, born and bred here but never felt that I was missing out on Christmas, I just knew its wasn't something I celebrated in our religion.

Paul, Islam doesn't have a problem coexisting...it is only a group of people who have the problem.

mystic - December 23, 2009, 8:57AM

I always have to scoff whenever Muslims in Australia complain of cultural oppression. People in Australia are free to practice whatever religion they want (provided it doesn't violate the laws) or no religion at all.

I wish the same could be said for some muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Malaysia - which actively discriminate against people of non-muslim religions.

mkay | CBD Sydney - December 23, 2009, 9:10AM

Let's not forget that the original celebrations held in late december was the pagan celebration for the Winter Solstice. After the Romans became Christians, the date of the birth of christ was chosen to occur inline with the pagan festival. Most biblical scholars agree that it is highly unlikely that Christ was born in December.

So really this celebration is whatever you want it to be. If you're devoutly Christian, then celebrate Christ. If you're atheist, celebrate the holiday, if you're any other religion then pick some event to celebrate, and if you're the grinch who stole christmas... then write a whiney article.

pk | Sydney - December 23, 2009, 9:03AM

You know, despite the fact that I am a particularly devout Buddhist, I've never had a problem celebrating Christmas. Christmas has never had anything more than a patina of religious celebration about it, and, at least in Australia, has always been a simple Saturnalian celebration of the end of the year dedicated to everyone. I visit my Christian friends' parties; catch up; enjoy and simply luxuriate in the pleasant company of others at a universally accepted celebration time.

And to those who think it's cultural imperialism... I don't remember anyone complaining when I celebrate Tet, or the lunar new year, or any other celebration relevant to my religion. Nor did they probably mope around complaining about it or feeling all "uncomfortable." I think those people who feel uncomfortable about being around others celebrating are genuinely sad people.

Wack - December 23, 2009, 9:44AM

So sick of every article written by a muslim being followed by stupid comments from bigotted people who immediately assume the article is somehow criticising western culture.

This article is clearly observational in nature. It would be strange being surrounded by a celebration that you haven't grown up with. As an athiest, I felt like this on World Youth Day. You feel like an outsider looking in. I think this article is a musing about that. It's perfectly normal, perfectly natural and most of us would feel the same way.

Everything I've read by this author shows that he is an objective thinker who happens to be muslim and one of the few muslim commentators I've read who can comment on our society without sticking the boot into western culture. People should read his articles and use them as an opportunity to empathise and understand.
