Our Islamophobia, security measures designed to prevent terrorism, and our foreign policy are to blame and apparently justify terrorist acts as 9/11 and what has just happened in Paris.
According to the representatives of the Muslim community in Australia in a statement released today the Grand Mufti and National Imams Council’s statement appeared to condemn the Australian nation and Western Democratic Society in general for not bending to their will.
Buried within the many horrors of the Paris attacks is a kernel of truth that speaks the nature of its evil: The sheer pointlessness of it all.
Australians and all citizens of the Western Democratic World now need to ask our political and media class, how we got to this position, we the general public have done nothing wrong, we are and have every right to be who we are, we love and value our history and our culture, we were never asked if we wanted to change, that we would have to accommodate the demands of a substantial and threatening Islamist community in our midst.
When were we ever asked, informed or given a chance to debate or vote on this most challenging and threatening change to our culture and our children or grandchildren’s future.
No politicians, the media and an knowitall academic class decided to impose this high risk multicultural experiment on us, seeking the dreamtime lefty nirvana where all cultures and races would be forced to live together like it or not.
If we questioned we were labelled, racists even though this has nothing to do with race, ignorant Islamophobes when it now appears it was they the academics, media and political class who had not done their homework on Islam.
A majority of Australian’s just want the right to continue with their own life, enjoying the comfort of our own unique and tolerant knockabout culture, sure we have welcomed many people from other races and cultures, but that is because they were not intent on imposing their culture on us, they might share and welcome our interest in their history and culture, we were always able to get on with a few bumps and scrapes along the way as all friendships do, but it was never about demanding we learn, demanding we change, and that is the important difference here.

The great lie of terrorism is to present murderous rage as an expression of a legitimate grievance. Previous Islamic extremist atrocities have been highly symbolic, such as the World Trade Centre and Pentagon attacks, directed at so-called Western decadence, as with the Bali massacre or the tourist attacks in Africa, specifically targeted towards transport infrastructure as in London and Madrid, or framed as a response against a perceived offence, as were the Charlie Hebdo killings.
It is all a grotesque lie, as the weekend has shown: People killed randomly at a restaurant or a concert or a football game. People killed for no other reason than that they were there. That they dared to exist.
Yet were this not sickening enough, we now have to deal with the suggestion that we ourselves, Western society, are the true cause of such atrocities, a nauseating argument that has once more been rolled out before the mourners have even buried their dead.
The usual excuses for terrorism are made. That it’s the West’s fault for invading Iraq, even though 9/11 took place a year and a half before the invasion. That it’s the West’s fault for supporting Israel, even though less than a year ago France infuriated Israel by voting to recognise the Palestinian state. That it’s caused by Islamophobia, even though the same people tell us that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.
Sadly for the vast majority of horrified and peace-loving Muslims, their spiritual leader has fallen precisely into this trap, as have countless hand-wringing white and godless commentators.
In an official written statement, the Grand Mufti of Australia and the National Imams Council sheeted the blame not onto extremism but instead what Western society has done to cause it.
“These recent incidents highlight the fact that current strategies to deal with the threat of terrorism are not working,” the statement said. “It is therefore imperative that all causative factors such as racism, Islamophobia, curtailing freedoms through securitisation, duplicitous foreign policies and military intervention must be comprehensively addressed.”
Far from condemning the terrorists, it appeared to condemn the nation for not bending to their will.
This kind of mass-level victim blaming would never be tolerated for any other crime. Imagine suggesting that we should combat domestic violence by looking at what women had done to provoke it. Imagine addressing the spate of coward punches by telling would-be victims to change their behaviour. The outcry would be deafening, and rightly so.
The inconvenient truth is that there is no rationality behind groups like Islamic State. There is no reason, nor hope of appeasement.
The only language they speak is death, and death is the only thing that will stop them.
We the Australian people have made our will clear at every chance we have been given to vote in a federal election since 1994 bar one in 2007, the Australian people have voted in clear majority for the Liberal National Coalition to Govern this country under either John Howard or Tony Abbott, but that has never been accepted by the self appointed progressive media and political class who are intent on bashing us into ideological submission under a UN driven anti capitalist and anti western democratic agenda of Multiculturalism and Climate Change propaganda.
This must end now, we must find people who will stand up for us, our rights to continue to enjoy or freedoms and our culture our way.
