Plain Speaking in Oz

It’s always a pleasure to hear the words of a Muslim zealot who discards all pretense and dissimulation and tells it like it is, Islam-style. Anjem Choudary in the UK is a perennial favorite in this regard, never failing to assure a television interviewer that Islam is superior to all other religions, that it must triumph, and will eventually rule in Britain.

Australia seems to have raised up its own antipodean Choudary in the person of Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon, a white convert to Islam. Like Mr. Choudary, Mr. Siddiq-Conlon has launched a “Sharia4” franchise in his country, “Sharia4Australia”. But he goes a step farther than his soul brother in England — he acknowledges that violent confrontation may in fact be required to assure the victory and ascendance of Islam in Australia.

Here’s the report from The Australian:

PM Go and ‘Let the Muslims Take Over’

Ibrahim Siddiq-ConlonISLAMIC preacher Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon points heavenwards to emphasise his message for the governments of Australia — there is no God but Allah and only his laws should be obeyed.

“My attack is on the Prime Minister of Australia,” he said yesterday. “I hate the parliament in Canberra. I want to go straight for the jugular vein and advise the parliament that they have no right to legislate. They should immediately step down and let the Muslims take over.”

An Australian-born convert to Islam, Siddiq-Conlon is the self-anointed leader of a group called Sharia4Australia, which is pushing for the introduction of sharia courts as a first step towards achieving Islamic law.

“One day Australia will live under sharia; it’s inevitable,” he said. “If they (Australians) don’t accept it, that’s not our problem. We hope, and our objective is to have a peaceful transition, but when you look at history that has never been the case. There’s always been a fight. It is inevitable that one day there will be a struggle for Islam in Australia.”

A masters graduate in architecture from the University of Technology Sydney, Siddiq-Conlon formed Sharia4Australia last year. He said he had three objectives. The first is to persuade Muslims they must hate “taghoot”, the worship of any God other than Allah, which includes democracy.

“They must hate it, speak out against it. And, if that doesn’t work, take action against it.”

His other objectives are to advise elected governments they have no authority to rule, and to educate non-Muslims on the benefits of sharia, including punishments such as stoning adulterers and severing the hands of thieves.

“If chopping off the hands is the punishment given by the sharia court then we say glad tidings, because chopping off the hands — when you understand what is sharia — is a mercy to that person.

“Why is it a mercy getting your hands chopped off? Because it can be expiation for your sins. It is better to get punished in this life than to go underground into the grave or into the hellfire for eternity.”

Siddiq-Conlon will join a debate tonight at the Parramatta Town Hall in Sydney on the merits of sharia versus democracy. The event was organised by self-styled debate promoter Zaky Mallah, who was acquitted of terrorism charges in 2005 but pleaded guilty to threatening to kill a commonwealth officer after his passport was cancelled.

The pro-democracy case will be argued by an Australian army veteran, self-described “concerned Aussie” and senior member of the pro-gun Firearms Forum, Jack Zedee. “The issue with Mr Conlon and Sharia4Australia is they are preaching hatred. His views horrify me,” Mr Zedee told The Australian.

Police and private security are expected at the debate, after both sides claimed to have received death threats. Mallah said he had tried to cancel the event but the debaters insisted on proceeding.

Siddiq-Conlon shrugs off concerns his campaign will damage the moderate Muslim community. “If it causes a backlash against the Muslims, I can’t help that. This is a necessary debate.”

Hat tip: Shirl in Oz.

Australia: No one has right to legislate except Allah: PM should step aside and 'let the Muslims take over'

What an incredibly tolerant bunch of people we are. Tim Webster says of the call by Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon for sharia law, would we be afforded the same amount of freedom to speak on Christianity in sharia law countries?

Heres some more plain speaking from Oz - Conlon you are an enemy of the West, you are not welcome in Australia or any other Western country. Go to Saudi or Yemen and do not return, and stick sharia fascist law up your fat derrier.

This man, Silly-Colon, is sure to get Australian blood up. Then again, he's also a complete moron to think he can take on Australia and win. Rommel remarked for a reason that, if he had to take Hell, he'd use Australians to take it and New Zealanders to hold it.

I laugh at him, and then I'll cut him up. Another Black Knight.

He might want to watch the movie "The Desert Rats" when the Aussies held it Rommel was stopped cold, after they were relived by a British unit it fell.

When Allah is elected to the Australian parliament he can legislate with the rest of our MPs.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for trying to help, really, BUT this "nut" is the TRUE faithful Muslim following doctrinal Islam.

Sharia Law is the fundamental legal basis of Islam that enables Muslims to exercise total control over society for the benefit of Muslims as a privileged class over non-Muslims.

Any "anti Sharia Muslim folks" are actually Islamic hypocrites - and thus apostates under an ummah-wide death sentence that may be imposed by any Muslim anywhere at any time - and who should be willing to publicly self-identify as former Muslims giving the date of their apostasy). More likely, the "anti Sharia Muslim folks" are simply liars playing the "good cop" role in a complicated game of "good cop, bad cop" designed confuse the good-hearted befuddled non-Muslim while Muslims immigrate to the West and quickly out-breed Westerners in order to obtain numerical superiority in order to "democratically" impose Sharia Law upon society.

The Muslim tactic of taqiyya gives any ostensibly "anti Sharia Muslim folks" full moral impunity to lie to non-Muslims.

"Taqiyya is a practice in Shia Islam whereby adherents may conceal their faith when they feel that they are under threat, persecution or compulsion [from more powerful non-Muslims]." (Wikipedia)

In order to be TRUE faithful Muslims, our "anti Sharia Muslim folks" are absolutely required to donate Zakat which is frequently funneled to jihad (i.e., political overthrow and violent murder of non-Muslims as advocated by your "nut").

"Zakāt (Arabic: زكاة‎ [zæˈkæːh], sometimes "Zakāh/Zekat"[1]) or "alms giving", one of the Five Pillars of Islam, is the giving 2.5% of one's possessions (surplus wealth) to charity, generally to the poor and needy. The Shia double this to 5% of one's possessions."

"Muslim jurists agree that zakat was and is obligatory on the Muslim who has reached puberty, who is sane, who is free, and who owns the minimum assigned nisab, throughout Islamic history; denying Zakat equals denying the Islamic faith."

"Eight categories of individuals may receive the zakat:[12][13]

* 1. The needy (Muslims) - Fuqara'
* 2. Extremely poor (Muslims) - Al-Masakin
* 3. Those employed to collect - Aamileen
* 4. Those whose hearts are to be won - Muallafatul Quloob
* 5. To free the captives - Ar-Riqaab
* 6. Those in debt (Muslims only) - Al Ghaarimeen
* 7. In the way of Allah - Fi sabil Allah - aka jihad
* 8. Wayfarer (Muslims)- Ibnus-Sabeel

"As a general rule, the recipient must be a living Muslim who does not possess wealth equal to or in excess of a prescribed threshold amount nisab. Those who do not give money are either poor or will go to prison."

"Non-Muslims receive help through Sadaqah or charity. Only under special circumstances may a non-Muslim receive zakat."

so you want to say Shia folks are evil , shia say Sunni are evil, both lots kill ahmardi's , and jews and christians and hindu's

sorry mate but you all the enemy
try you lies elsewhere

the Koran may have started out inspired but ended up the work of satan ,

Nilk said...

No, Jack, this is not what Egghead is saying.

He (or she!) is saying that it is islam that is the problem, and using zakat as an example.

Sure, there is charitable giving in other religions, but I've never come across anything apart from sharia rulings that specify what uses that charity can be put to.

If you look at those categories, there isn't anything truly altruistic towards infidels.

With respect to shia and sunnis, if it comes down to it, they would unite against the kuffar any day, and once the kuffar were defeated go back to trying to off one another.

They've been doing that for centuries, why stop now?

The straight face.
The thousand-mile stare.
The look of arrogance is so obvious.
He is led by pride. Nothing else.
