Is There Something in the Water in Australia?

Something good, I mean. And if so, can we bottle it and import it? As though Australia's Prime Minister weren't amazing enough, what with his having a spine and all, listen to what that country's Treasurer says:

Anyone who believes Islamic sharia law can co-exist with Australian law should move to a country where they feel more comfortable, Treasurer Peter Costello says.
All Australian citizens must adhere to the framework in society which maintains tolerance and protects the rights and liberties of all, he said.

Huh? An elected official talking sense? Can you imagine any Canadian politician suggesting such heresies? Our new crew in Ottawa are as pitiful and gutless as those they replaced. And if ever any of them do get some cojones, you know they will be accused of racism and hauled before the human rights commission, pronto.
Read the story, and weep with envy.

Jews sadistically kill animals, as outlined in their religious code, and are sanctioned to do so oficially. Whereas, in other cases it would be considered cruelty. I agree, muslims, shouldn't have their cult laws legitimized, nor should jews. Here in this country we make laws becuase of our own values. If they don't like it, they can take a hike to the desert.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-26 3:45:14 PM


Sean is full of rubbish. Both Jews and Muslims have a specifically required way to slaughter animals for food and both are more humane than the standard practise here. However this has nothing to do with the topic. No one is Australia has demanded that everyone eat the same food prepared in the same way.

The lack of vision and spine of our newly elected government cannot and must no be excused as a result of being a minority. If they expect to win another election, especially with a majority, then they quickly need to show both spine and vision - a vision for Canada that is not an imitation of liberal statism.

How about lectures for western elected reps. to be given in Australia? It would especially make sense for UK officials.

Impressive. Canadians haven't stood up for what Canada used to be for years now, and now after years of nothingness nobody even knows what Canada used to stand for. No one is even allowed to be 'Canadian', the government's multicultural industry makes sure of that. Canada is pointless.

Canada IS pointless, and it's awful to have to say that.

When I read that story, I decided to start looking for a nice Australian girl to marry. That's the kind of place I want to live in.

Globalist American pawns, liberalists, multiculturalists and the organized jewry have been ruining Canada since Trudeau. Enough is enough. These clowns have declared war, and they ought to be called on it.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-27 1:39:42 AM


Alain has got to be a muslim or a jew. They don't even stun the animal, they slit it's throat, slicing it's trachea and esophagus and in many instances, tear them out while it's still completely conscious. Sounds humane, huh, alain?

If these people want sadism, they should leave, we protect against that.

Anyway Australia can be bad for your social health

Jack Thomas, the 32-year-old Werribee father of three who trained under the al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan just months before the September 11, 2001, strike on the United States.The former Melbourne taxi driver convicted this week of receiving cash from al-Qaeda has told of his meetings with Osama bin Laden, and he is quite upset about it too. And what did he expect, free danishes?

"What this case demonstrates very clearly is if you get involved with terrorists and their activities then you do so at your own peril,"

that ios quite obvious or should be to all

Posted by: What? | 2006-02-27 6:00:56 AM


"You don't 'join' a terrorist organization," for it's the result of the ongoing collective incitement of millions of Arab - Muslim children – in school, in the social arena, in clubs, in mosques, on the Temple Mount, on the street, in graffiti. It is absolutely part of the culture, part of their upbringing."

Do now put all of the bad Palestinians, and the bad Muslisms on trial for both war crimes and propaganda excesses against us the civilians.

Or do we give them more free danishes? or maybe a free Bible?

Mayhem in Nigeria, the fifth- largest oil supplier to the United States and Africa's most populous country, is escalating and so are kidnappings of foreign workers, arson against offshore oil installations, bombings of pipelines and lethal clashes between Muslims and Christians.

the Muslim trouble makers are world wide.

Sir Trevor - who stirred controversy with his attacks on multi-culturalism and calls on ethnic minorities to integrate - said a consequence of freedom of speech was that non-Muslims must accept imams' right to denounce homosexuality.

He rejected the idea that British Muslims should be allowed to live under sharia law in their communities. "I don't think that's conceivable," he said. "We have one set of laws ... and that's the end of the story. If you want to have laws decided in another way, you have to live somewhere else."..'

Muslims who want sharia law 'should leave'

Owen Bowcott
Monday February 27, 2006
The Guardian

Muslims who wish to live under a system of sharia law should leave Britain, the chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality suggested yesterday.

Speaking in the wake of demonstrations against Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, Sir Trevor Phillips said those living in the UK had to accept that British values include a commitment to freedom of speech, even if that means offending people.

"What some minorities have to accept is that there are certain central things we all agree about, which are about the way we treat each other - that we have an attachment to democracy, that we sort things out by voting not by violence and intimidation, that we tolerate things that we don't like," he told ITV1's Jonathan Dimbleby programme. "Short of people menacing and threatening each other, we have freedom of expression. We allow people to offend each other."

Sir Trevor - who stirred controversy with his attacks on multi-culturalism and calls on ethnic minorities to integrate - said a consequence of freedom of speech was that non-Muslims must accept imams' right to denounce homosexuality.

He rejected the idea that British Muslims should be allowed to live under sharia law in their communities. "I don't think that's conceivable," he said. "We have one set of laws ... and that's the end of the story. If you want to have laws decided in another way, you have to live somewhere else." Sir Trevor said he wanted to promote a sense of "Britishness" in the UK. "One point of Britishness is that people can say what they like about the way we should live, however absurd, however unpopular it is," he said.

Muslims in Muslim countries disown the SOB's that move to western Christian countries and mess shit up. Because, they themselves, want to protect against the same globalist judeo Marxist bullshit that we, in the west, are confronted with.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-27 8:21:28 AM


Aussie, Al-qaeda doesn't exist!!!!


"AL-qaeda" is a list of mujuhadden fighters from Afghanistan, the directory that the USA used while murdering Russian soldiers during the 80's.

These fucks are phantoms, created by neoconservative PNAC Zionists.

The true enemy is PNAC and the zio world order.

Any self respecting person of European decent should recognize this. If they cant, than may god have mercy on us all...

Methinks Sean is a Neo-Nazi type judging from the paranoid rantings and the implication that "it's all the Joos fault" crap in his posts

Time to move on Sean. No one likes Nazis here

I am a Canadian. One that doesn't appreciate b'nai brith and other zionist entities messing up my country with their neo-zio agenda. I have family that died fighting for this country in both wars and I don't like having their memory spat on by imbecilic anti-Canadians. Which, I am guessing, you are.

Not only are you embarrassing, in fact you're the enemy.

THE MUSLIMS now SHOULD LEAVE ALL THE COUNTRiES THEY ARE IN FOR THEY ARE to OFTEN THE MAIN BIG UANCCEPTABLE TROUBLEMAKERS THESES DAYS.

Posted by: Yeah | 2006-02-27 1:42:34 PM


I would find Hollywood, the feminists and all those calling for more tolerance of radical Islam hilarious if they weren't so pathetic. Who do they think would be the first to meet an untimely end if Sharia Law came into effect in the West?
These left wing nuts are all for using the West’s freedoms against itself, but they should be careful what they wish for.

Posted by: Polly | 2006-02-27 3:39:29 PM


Jews were the most influential group in almost every liberalist decadence movment i.e.,
european communism, the american civil rights campaing, the 60's "counter culture" revolution, femenism, Multiculturalism, boasian anthropology, the Frankfurt school, etc. Jews support diversity for gentiles yet protect their own race with both arms swinging.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-27 3:50:38 PM


Sean - Your lack of compelling rational argument and emiprical proof is matched only by your zeal. You are truly the kind of wingnut that give rational educated people with conservative political outlooks a bad name.

Please define: "globalist judeo Marxist bullshit". Note: globalism is a capitalist phenomenon describing increasing levels of free trade globally, and runs precisely counter to Marxism. Have fun.

Please define: "neo-zio" agenda. That sounds like a videogame. Is it fun?

Sean, you seem to make enemies quickly (e.g. MarkAlta). Has this gone on long? Did you not get enough affections as a child? Would you like a couch to lie on?

Sorry kiddo. There is no secret cabal of Jews, American Businessmen and Freemasons calling all the shots. There is no identifiable "they" secretly meeting in Haifa dining on the delicacy of charbroiled Teutonic babies laughing maniacally while devising ways to keep white males down.

"All Australian citizens must adhere to the framework in society which maintains tolerance and protects the rights and liberties of all"

You hear that ShotDumbers? I assume that anyone demanding TOLERANCE and RIGHTS for the citizenry must be really pissing you off since SO MANY of you are AGAINST the RIGHTS of others and support INTOLERENT views.


best post today: "These left wing nuts are all for using the West’s freedoms against itself, but they should be careful what they wish for."

Using freedom against itself??? LOL! Polly wanna clue?

Posted by: Christianity killed way more | 2006-02-27 7:36:25 PM


Christianity - I don't know whether to say wow! or yikes!! to your post.

Let's start here. There's a huge difference between tolerance and acceptance. What the more PC crowd tends to do, in my observances, is confuse the two. For example, I can tolerate that someone follows a religion that actively preaches violence, so long as this person doesn't themself become violent, or incite others to violence. However, I will not accept that this religion is good, kind or decent.

To extend, I'll use the well worn cartoon example as this is still fresh in everyone's mind. In order for a free society to remain free, all people must be willing to *tolerate* offensive (or otherwise poor) uses of free speech. Nobody is, however, required to *accept* a bad use of free speech as being truthful, good, productive etc.

The long running commentary on this blog discussing the disconnect between Muslim culture and the West, which is what I'm sure you're referring to, is based on the mounting evidence that Muslim culture is asking the West to *accept* it's culture without *tolerating* the culture of the West.

And certainly, freedom can be used against itself quite effectively. How many years did it take for the "public safety lobby" exercising their freedom to moralize before my freedom to drive without a seatbelt was removed? A small example, but the freedom of one group to promote their point of view certainly resulted in a reduction of freedom of (legal) action.

How would you like your clue? Plain or salted?

"Sorry kiddo. There is no secret cabal of Jews, American Businessmen and Freemasons calling all the shots."

Wow, I guess becuase you said it, it must be true. Thanks rabbi.

Regardless, I don't care whether they are behind the scenes or smack down in the midst of it all. I am a person who belives in nations, and history. I don't favor ethnocide nor do I promote globalism. For you, your agenda is obvious... I smell hillel.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-28 4:16:26 AM


P.s., Read the book, if you're even capable.

Posted by: Sean | 2006-02-28 4:21:22 AM


Sharia Law.. imagine that having a relgious cop, an imam, on every street corner, evcen another nad cop who would likely take a bribe too. Ever meet an honest Mulism in business even who paid all of the taxes to the governments? it does not exists you say?

ANOTHER MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE CULTURAL SHARI ISLAMIC LAW IS THE IT VARIES FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY DEPENDING ON THE MOOD OF THE LOCAL PREVALENT STINKING WINDS TOO.

Posted by: MOHAMED | 2006-02-28 5:19:18 AM


Jews were the most influential group in almost every liberalist decadence movEment i.e.,

A good jew does alot of good things Like Abraham

A bad jew does a lot of bad things Like Judas

for there are GOOD AND BAD JEWS TOO.

There are real and phoney christoians too

but there are mostly the bad Mulsims still

such is the reality

Posted by: Non Jewish | 2006-02-28 5:22:52 AM


I respect many jews thar reform to a standard of whatever nation they are in. However, many many only have one nation, the jewish nation. These are fifth columns. I am not against all jews, I am against the organized jewry and all talmudists.
