When news is not news

Did you hear about the survey conducted this week that found only 16 per cent of Australians think that Islam makes our nation a better place?

Neither did I.

That’s because the media is just not interested in covering any stories that highlight exactly how concerned Australians are about the rise of Islam in this country.

But the survey is in and it is very clear.

Over 70 per of Australians disagree with the politically correct mantra that Islam is compatible with our way of life. The vast majority do not believe it provides anything beneficial to this nation. Most Australians do not believe that we need more of it here.

But more of it is here. Every day.

The Islamic population nearly doubled over the last decade and it is set to double again by 2030. And that’s only if you believe the politically correct figures.

In 2011, the Pew Research Centre forecast that Australia’s Islamic population would grow nearly five times faster than the rest of Australia and reach 714,000 in 2030.

There was only one small problem with that assessment. Actually, it was a big problem.

It assumed in January 2011 that Australia’s Islamic population was 400,000. When census sheets were filled out across the nation in November that year, 476,000 ticked the box that belonged to Allah and his prophet of unpeace.

That was an increase of 140,000 in five years. There are three and bit more five year lots between now and 2030, so if you assume that each of them sees the same-sized Islamic increase, then that means there will be 940,000 Muslims in Australia in 17 years time.

But that’s actually a very flawed assumption. Because it could only happen if the Islamic birth rate plummets far below its current levels. That’s not likely, and even if there was a small drop, the expanding population would still see a rise in net birth numbers.

So that means it would also require a massive decrease in the Islamic immigration rate.

Yeah right.

As if any government is going to have the ticker to take that one on. Even the supposedly rabidly conservative Tony Abbott spent the first night of the election campaign schmoozing with the Islamic community in Western Sydney.

That’s where elections are won and lost, remember. Western Sydney is more important than the rest of Australia and it is also home to the largest concentration of Islamic communities in this country.

So it’s unlikely that any of our politicians are going to want to say no to more Islam.

That means the real figure in 2030 is going to be much higher. At a minimum, you’re looking at around 1.2 million. Maybe even up to 1.5 million.

Maybe, just maybe, it is something that we should talk about.

And if the PC do-gooders are so right about how wonderful it is, it should be easy to convince the rest of us.

But if we can’t even debate the whys and wherefores of Islamic immigration without being labelled a racist bigot, we have got a serious problem in this country’s culture and confidence. It’s a sign that out culture is already dying.

Australians don’t want more Islam and we should be able to say no to it.

Why? Because it is our country and we don’t more Muslims holding conferences here to arrogantly inform us that they won’t integrate. Nor do we want more of this.

  1. The two comments above are very realistic, intelligent assessments of the most important social issue facing Western nations. Muslims are very quick to claim all the benefits and freedoms associated with democracy; to claim equality and inclusion with the host society – until their numbers and political power increase, leading ultimately to their supremacy and the exclusion of all others. Individual Muslims can be very fine people and make good citizens – but their ability to integrate into Western society is greatly impeded by Islamic ideology which is aggressive, supremacist and dedicated to achieving their stated aim of achieving a Global Caliphate under Sharia law. The Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights ruled (Refah Partisi and others vs Turkey, 2003) that Sharia is incompatible with democracy and international human rights law, especially in relation to criminal law and procedures, and the treatment of women.
    Multiculturalism has been actively promoted in Australia, ascribing equal value to all cultures, failing to acknowledge that different cultural practices produce very different societal outcomes. Consequently, our society is suffering the impact of practices which contravene Australian law and the international human rights conventions which Australia has pledged to uphold.
    It is time to reclaim and emphasize the value of Australian ethics and values which have made our nation strong and free. It is time to hold politicians and the media to account. Our complacency has enabled too many to set in motion public policies which have unforeseen negative consequences. It is time for concerned citizens to articulate their views in polite, well-informed letters to politicians of all political persuasions.

  2. It is indeed a vexed question but there is no hope of changing Islam. The real hope is to place restrictions on the entry, stay and welfare of Muslims. Of course there are nice Muslims just as there are wicked ones but most Muslims have been indoctrinated to thinking that the West is wicked and they, the Muslims, are highly moral with a duty to eliminate infidels of the West. It is the Islamic religion that is at fault. It is a political ideology under the cover of a religion. The solution lies right there. It is a political movement directed at the heart of western society and democracy. Those that adhere to Islam in any radical way must be deported and deprived of the privileges of living here. I hear the screams of course from liberals and those who are from the Left of our political spectrum. However the barbaric acts of Islamists the world over, show what kind of a society Islam brings with it, and to those who are forced to live under its rule in Islamic countries, and those who oppose it. We have in the past excluded Communists and other political activists who conspire against us. So why not now? The answer is that political correctness and multiculturalism have divided our society. Both concepts must be eliminated. To divide a nation is to weaken and eventually fracture it. Diversity is not a civic virtue. It promotes tribalism. Germany and even Britain are waking up to the evils of those concepts.

  3. What a vexed question this is. I have met some wonderful Moslems. A few years back on the Andrew Bolt forum I noticed that there were a few Moslems who seemed to be trying to engage as Australians with Australians. One of them was a rabid Hawthorn supporter. I invited them out to my farm and took them on a horse ride. They arrived with a gift for my wife, which a lot of thought had gone into, and we had a great time together. We became friends. Now, these men whom I am proud to be friends with, don’t believe violence is any kind of solution and I consider them Australian. But, sadly there’s another side to the story. We have real problems with people like the racially motivated Skaf brother rapists, the anti-Australian imans and the would-be terrorists now serving jail terms. I don’t know how to deal with them and for that reason I must defer to those with vastly more experience.
