The Counterjihad Calendar: November

Stop the Sharia Clock!

The month of November in the Counterjihad Calendar is represented by Australia.

Australia has shown stalwart resistance to Islamization. Yes, it has its dhimmis, its PC brigades ready to crack down on “racism” at the drop of a burnoose, but its national character seems to have pushed all the Multicultural nonsense to the sidelines.

In this characteristic Oz is rivaled only by Denmark among the countries of the West. Shall we call the Aussies the Danes of the Antipodes?

I’ve chosen the Sydney Opera House as the iconic monument for Australia (click for a larger image):


Many thanks to Darrin Hodges, who sent me most of the links, and for all the other Aussies who contributed. Here’s the list of Australian Counterjihad websites for the calendar:
- - - - - - - - -
If anyone has URLS for Spanish Counterjihad sites, please send them by email, or leave them in the comments.

Once again, the twelve countries I will be using for the 2008 calendar are:

  • France
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • India
  • Sweden
  • Italy
  • The U.S.A.
  • Greece
  • Britain
  • The Netherlands
  • Australia
  • Spain

After the final image is complete, I will revise each page to add any additional links, compile the complete calendar, and then make it available at our Café Press site.

We’ll finish up the calendar with Spain, for the month of December.

¡Basta ya!

Aren't they still jailing Christians who insult Islam, though?
Qv 'Catch the Fire ministries' case. I think it's the state of Victoria in particular. Vol-in-Law

Great list of links (some kiwis there). How in hell could you miss John Ray at: Dissecting Leftism?

As far as I know the vilification laws still stand in Victoria, although the politicians mumbled something about amending them to keep those pesky Christian out of trouble.

An the Australian Labor Party want a federal version of that Victorian state law. According to the polls, ALP may gain government in this years election. Theres a scary thought for ya.

The Age reported on the outcome of the case. Notice the Muslim reaction:

"Yasser Soliman, the president of the Islamic Council of Victoria, which brought the complaint, hugged both Christian defendants after the case.

"I said to Danny (Nalliah), it's time to move forward and I hope we can talk to each other directly and try to develop understanding. He smiled and said he had nothing against me personally. Daniel Scot said he had to be free to say what he needed to say. I've given them my card," he said."

and the reaction of some of our "Christian" churches".

"The case has divided Christian churches, with the Catholic and Uniting churches supporting the Islamic Council and Pentecostal and evangelical groups saying the law inhibits free speech."

Leonidas --

I'll tell you how I missed John Ray (or anyone else):

The time constraints of my two jobs (maintaining Gates of Vienna, plus my real job) allow me time to read nothing. Nothing.

Hence I rely on my readers to supply me with information. I have asked 10 times for Aussie links before now, and the email and comments were always open to you... :)

The Sydney Opera House is designed by a Dane - Joern Utzon . Coincidence?

Nilk said...

Baron, I've not had time to read many blogs lately, so have been restricted mainly to JW, LGF and TimBlair.

Here are a few more good aussie sites for you:

(not sure if there's a link limit, but here goes)
A Western Heart is for the anglosphere with a strong Australian contingent.

is a conservative journalist who is anti-islamist and has been almost a lone voice in the wilderness of Australian media.

is an eclectic group of Australians whose aim is to highlight islamist activity in Australia. They consist of differing faiths and beliefs, and cultural backgrounds. One of the few truly inclusive groups I've come across. And, yes, I do know several members personally. :)

are another group who are strongly anti-jihadi.

Can I go on?

Nilk said...

Sorry about the tagging.

Another excellent anti-jihadi group are the Shire Network News.

They are not aussie-centric, but deliver a weekly podcast from the anglosphere, and cover Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Canada and the US.

Nilk said...

With respect to the anti-vilification laws here in Melbournistan, the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act of 2001 was reviewed after pressure from the public and some activist groups.

The result, rather than loosening it up, was to make it more draconian than ever. If you wish to look upon brave new legislation, you'll find it

With the Catch the Fires case, I do not consider the outcome a win - more a stalemate. The Islamic Council of Victoria has beaten a strategic retreat, until they can find another way to push for legislation that will give islam the preeminence they crave.

For now, with the Act as it stands, my words against islam on my blog could be considered hate speech, and I'm sure that a complaint could be laid against me.

It doesn't matter which state I am in, or that my blog is purely my opinion. If someone in Australia feels oppressed or harassed by my words, then I am fair game.

Baron Bodissey said...

Nilk --

At least some of the links you mention are already on the list.

I used Silent Running rather than Shire Network News, although I suppose I could have used both.

Zerosumgame said...

What encouraged me was the way Aussies fought back against Islamists thugs in the Cronulla riots.

Thanks Nilk - here's the relevant section. Note that it bans even 'severe ridicule', so it catches comedians as well as Christians.

Religious vilification unlawful

8. Religious vilification unlawful

(1) A person must not, on the ground of the religious belief or activity of
another person or class of persons, engage in conduct that incites hatred
against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of, that other
person or class of persons.

Note: "engage in conduct" includes use of the internet or e-mail to publish or
transmit statements or other material.

(2) For the purposes of sub-section (1), conduct-
