15 things the Chief of Navy’s Islamic Advisor has to say

Did you know that the Chief of Navy has a Strategic Advisor on Islamic Cultural Affairs?

Her name is Captain Mona Shindy and she is pictured below in the Islamic uniform of the Royal Australian Navy:

Captain Mona Shindy, RAN, addresses the parade of New Training Ship Australia cadets during the acceptance of a new safety boat pictured in the background.

The Royal Australian Navy has a different uniform for Islam.

Recently, Captain Shindy and the Chief of Navy went to pay their respects to Australia’s Grand Mufti. This is how the Navy newspaper, Navy Daily, covered it:

Vice Admiral Barrett met with the Grand Mufti of Australia, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, on Saturday having just visited the Lakemba Mosque with his Strategic Advisor on Islamic Cultural Affairs, Captain Mona Shindy, as part of the Islamic community awareness program.

Discussions between the two leaders covered the broadening Navy’s engagement with the Muslim community, including the future development of an Imam Chaplain in Navy, an increased understanding of Islamic Community sensitivities as well as the importance of increased cultural awareness.

It goes on to state:

During the day Vice Admiral Barrett also had the opportunity to visit Lakemba Mosque. With the mosque open to the public for the day, the visit provided him with the opportunity to learn a little more about the Islamic faith and cultural practices. He also observed regular prayers, prayers for the deceased and had the opportunity to listen in on a community question and answer session.

Given this, one might like to know what advice Captain Shindy is providing. Luckily, a reader of this site advised me of an article written by Captain Shindy for Royal United Services Institute of New South Wales.  Here are 15 quotes – and what they really mean:

1. Islam and violence

“Why then have Muslims been linked to terrorism? Terrorism is an unjustifiable, abhorrent act that has nothing to do with Islam. The extremist behaviour of groups purporting to be Muslims has been overplayed by the media for years constantly linking terrorist behaviours to Islam, e.g. use of the description ‘Islamist’, rather than separatist or militant.”

Real meaning: Let’s blame the media for the problem of Islamic violence.

2. Jihad

“‘Jihad’ is an Arabic word meaning ‘struggle’. Big or main jihad is a spiritual struggle to resist the temptations of this world; to be righteous and follow God’s path. Small or less required (hopefully) jihad is armed struggle in the way of God. This is for the protection of the weak or oppressed whoever they may be and whatever religion they follow. Armed jihad is defence against aggression and oppression.”

Real meaning: Armed jihad is real, it exists, it is justified.

3. Hijab

“The hijab is a head covering sanctioned in the Quran, which contains dress codes for both men and women.”

Real meaning: The hijab is part of Sharia law and Navy uniforms are now compliant with it.

4. Islam and women

“Are Muslim women oppressed? No way! That said, it is true that there are pockets around the world in some Islamic nations where women are wrongly treated.”

Real meaning: Islamic women aren’t oppressed. Except when they are.

5. Opportunities for Australian Muslims

“Muslim Australians need the same opportunities as all their peers to enjoy satisfying lives and to feel included in and valued by the society in the country they love. The community must understand and respond to the challenges faced by its Muslim citizens – doing so is vital to community cohesion and respectful integration; and to reducing the risk of individuals falling into the ‘radicalisation trap’.”

Real meaning: Extremism is our fault because, in some undefined way, Muslims don’t have the same opportunities as the rest of us.

6. Sunni/Shia divide

“I personally find Western overplaying of the Sunni-Shiite rivalry to be unhelpful and often unwarranted. The media messaging seems determined at times to fuel flames. The bottom line is that commonalities between the sects significantly outweigh the differences which are in themselves not worthy of justifying division.”

Real meaning: The Western world is responsible for Sunni/Shia conflict.

7. Difficulties for young Muslims in Australia

“Young Muslims need to feel and see that they belong in Australian society. They need to be given equal opportunities and be protected, mentally and physically, by their government to the same extent as every other Australian. This requires empathy and an understanding that standing in the shoes of an Australian Muslim in today’s environment is not as simple or as easy as standing in shoes of a non-Muslim Australian.”

Real meaning: Young Muslims aren’t protected by the government because, you know, it’s like harder for them (again in some undefined way).

8. Need to look outside Western lens

“Continuing to assess Muslim behaviour and lifestyle through a Western lens, shaped through Western historical experiences and understanding (which is very different to Islamic history and tradition), is fraught with danger and is perhaps the main reason for incorrect conclusions and views being reached.”

Real meaning: Our Western values and views are the problem. If we looked at things from an Islamic perspective this violence would not seem like terrorism.

9. Charlie Hebdo

“The Charlie Hebdo event in Paris on 7 January 2015 is a case in point. From an Islamic perspective, the French government appears to be saying it is acceptable to ridicule what others hold as sacred, and cause outrage within French Muslim society; but it is not acceptable for Muslim women to exercise similar freedom of expression (not hurting anyone by the way) by wearing the hijab at universities or schools.”

Real meaning: From an Islamic perspective, Charlie Hebdo is our fault.

10. al Qaeda

“In Afghanistan, al-Qaida, a politically driven group/movement having issues with United States foreign policy, was targeted in Afghanistan as it had training camps there. Al-Qaida makes arguments for armed jihad, reasoning that United States foreign policy and activities oppress the innocent.”

Real meaning: al Qaida is a political movement that opposes the US for oppressing the innocent and let’s just forget about September 11.

11. More jihad

“There is also a need to understand why elements of the Muslim community are vulnerable to extremism and radicalisation. Islam calls Muslims to jihad to stop oppression. So once the idea of Muslim ‘oppression’ is planted in the minds of at-risk individuals, it is easier to move them to extremist actions.”

Real meaning: The problem with jihad is not jihad, but us.

12. Addressing terrorism

“The same needs to happen with addressing terrorism. We need to move on more quickly from a single approach of talking tough and broadly bombing regions where we believe extremists operate. I am not sure there is often any real clarity as to who exactly is the enemy. As such, working on preventative strategies gives the best likelihood of long-term success. Security, jobs, income to support families, and stability to grow and educate populations, are the key ingredients to preventing the explosive, desperate reaction to despair that is extremism.” 

Real meaning: It’s hard to know who the enemy is because Islam is complicated. But if we were nicer they’d go away.

13. Islamic State

“Indeed, the word ‘Islam’ needs to be removed from reporting on ISIS/ISIL or Daesh. The barbaric nature and ideology of these groups has nothing to do with Islam and we should work to limit their appeal to vulnerable Muslims, preventing the use and advertising of ‘Islam’ in their name. This would also limit the adverse impact they are having on the reputation and quality of life of the true peaceful Muslim majority. This must be coupled with frank, fearless, fair, respectful and honest debate addressing the root causes of grievances with a view to arresting the vicious cycle.”

Real meaning: We need to have a frank discussion about root causes of the problem. So we must not discuss the Islamic State’s reliance on Islamic teaching, doctrine and history.

14. Government assistance

“Tangible and practical strategies should include the provision of government assistance to the Australian Muslim community:

• to develop more English speaking religious leaders (Imams) to service the needs and spiritual guidance of Muslim youth;

• to create funded employment opportunities for appropriately qualified Imams;

• to provide more mosques, with appropriately qualified Imams – this would reduce the promotion of unsavoury ideologies by uneducated do-gooders in makeshift community halls used for gatherings and prayer where no proper Islamic religious services exist; and

• by addressing raised grievances or giving plausible, defensible and non-discriminatory reasons why they cannot be addressed – open and frank dialogue is needed in order to build understanding, respect and trust. Government education of the Australian community by promoting inclusion and mutual respect also would help in balancing and smoothing out polarised perceptions and beliefs.”

Real meaning: The government needs to employ more imams, build more mosques and promote Islam.

15. Islamic victimisation

“Muslim victimisation and disenfranchisement, real or perceived, puts the Muslim community under great strain. It erodes its confidence and self-esteem, and promotes a victim mentality, leading parts of the community to withdraw from the wider society. Indeed, segments of the Muslim community in Australia now struggle to integrate, to effectively communicate their true nature, and to reach their full potential. This, in turn, has impacted on the mental health of some within the Muslim community, and is a social phenomenon which needs serious and empathetic attention. Effective strategies are needed to address it. In short, real change can and must occur in Australia’s relations with its Muslim citizens. It will need strong leadership, a change in the dialogue, better exploration of grievances and community challenges, and implementation of a national education programme promoting understanding and inclusion.”

Real meaning: Muslims have a victim mentality and this is justified when the oppression is not even real, but just perceived. The only way to address this victim mentality is by recognising that the Islamic community are victims and deserve more support and recognition of their perceived grievances (even if they aren’t real).

  1. So whilst you were pissed off from the ADF for speaking your mind on a few topics, how is it that this Muslim Officer can tweet hate speech of the ALA? When will she be forced to resign for what is clearly a Defence Criminal Act – denigrating a Political Party?

  4. How come the hijab is allowed in our western forces?
    I’m living in Turkey, an Islamic country, and wearing the hijab is not allowed to all female members of the armed and police forces.
    This is taqiyya and pure provocation

  5. This woman is an officer of the ADF and should be afforded the respect that is owed to her by virtue of her commission. It follows therefore that if and when this officer is next assigned to sea duty, that any enlisted RAN members who happen to be of the same faith as herself will therefore pay compliments to her by saluting her and carrying out her orders with the diligence that is lawfully required of them. Any repeat of the behavior that has been seen of late in Australian law courts where men of her faith refuse to stand for female judges, and also male judges, should result in the full force of the ADF disciplinary system being applied. However, in most instances that would require the officer herself to initiate the disciplinary process. We can only hope that if her authority were to be challenged, or for that matter the authority of any female commissioned officer or NCO by muslim enlisted men, that we will not see the submissive posture taken by the officials of our law courts repeated in the ADF.

  6. Ex serving personal navy. What has our servicers come to and what is it going to be like in the future. They are allowing this and telling the Chaplins and Priests they can not use the word JESUS in there services, so why are we changing to suit muslims. What is their corarn say, do not be friends with another religion. So how can the NAVY allow this woman stand there in an ADF uniform with her gehab on her head and say to the rest of the defence force personal this is right and the Chaplins and Priests have their hands tyde this is double stanadards big time.

  7. Try as one might it is beyond all understanding why any part of the nation’s defence force or any other statutory uniformed force or service would allow any significant display of any religious belief on their uniforms. The idea of any uniform is to give the sense of oneness with the objectives of the service, to establish a sense of cohesion within the service and to present those ideals to the public, who, after all, pay the wages of those who serve in the services. To allow the good captain to display her first line of loyalty within the context of being a member of the RAN goes against all sensible reasoning. More over, we have to ask where will such special entitlements end? Will aboriginal ADF members be allowed to parade in ochre rather than service dress? Will homosexuals be allowed to wear pink armbands to display their sexual orientation? This divisive behavior must be nipped in the bud, even if it takes personal intervention by the Defence minister.

  9. Sent to me via email about going Dutch! The mood of the greater Australian Electorate. WE SHOULD ALL SEND THIS TO OUR LOCAL MEMBER.
    Dutch . . . But Why Wait Until 2016?
    The Netherlands , where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism.
    The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
    A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament, on June 16, 2015 reads:
    “The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.” In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society, play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.
    The letter continues: “A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens.” It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands .
    The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants.
    For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.
    The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner;
    “It is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.” (How bloody true!!!)
    The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.
    More specifically, the government imposed a ban on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2015.
    Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized – maybe too late – that creating a nation of tribes, will kill the nation itself.
    The future of Australia, the UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand may well be read here.
    READERS NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave thei countries of birth because of civil and political unrest . . . “CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE.”
    Countries like Holland, Canada, USA, UK, Australia, and New Zealand have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?
    If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple; “STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!!”
    This gives a whole new meaning to the term, ‘Dutch Courage’ … Unfortunately Australian, UK, USA, Canadian, and New Zealand politicians don’t have the guts to do the same. There’s a whole lot of truth here!!!
    Only 86% will send this on. Should be 100%!!! copy and paste

  10. I was proud to serve in pusses during 60’s and 70’s….
    All people entering the ADF/ Pusses were subject to a physic
    assesment back then.
    It would appear the loonie left have hyjacked this process and
    indeed encouraged these nutters, under the guise of inclusion,
    to the point of promoting them to captain (with no sea time)…
    It very sad that the Navy is even contemplating the inclusion
    of Islam in it’s ranks (Islam = hatered, intolarence and violance)
    Indeed I belive Muslims on a ship would cause disharmony, which in turn
    would detract from the ships efficency.
    One can only hope that cool experienced heads will pervail in this matter….
    In closing, may I suggest that should muslims go to sea then their prayer
    area could be set “as some where aft of the quater deck”…….!!!!!!

  12. What is happening with the ADF?
    What happens if a Muslim in the ADF is ordered overseas to fight in say Iraq? Interesting to say the least and I have to say that for people who represent just 2.2% of the population they are having a big say and disproportionate influence in our affairs.
    They do not want to assimilate and yet they’re only too happy to take government funding for their schools, some of which have been in the news lately for questionable accounting practices.

  14. The Muslim terrorist on Q&A this week – you know, the one sporting a marijuana leaf on his cap – stated, in response to the Lib pollie, that the government taking away Muslim terrorists’ passports is the reason why young Muslims are going off to Iraq etc.

    Has anyone challenged him on this?

    Surely that’s a case of ‘anyone who eats a tomato, dies’. I mean, the terrorists are FIRST going off to fight, then their passports WILL be taken from them, not the other way around.

    In any case, they’re going off to fight BECAUSE the Koran and a multitude of Muslim scholars (like ibn Tammiyya and al-Ghazali) have ordered them to, not t mention the Koran and the hadith.

    But of course, the Left and the majority of pollies would not want to know this because it’s an inconvenient truth.

  15. In the first instance I must admit to some skepticism as to the complete truth of the article but if, as the article asserts, this Admiral did visit a mosque and discuss religion then it begs the question..why? If it was to simply ask for a representative for Muslims in the RAN…fair enough…but I don’t think so. If it was the typical Pusses Officer doing research for his next thesis…fair enough…they all do it. But if it was to “reinforce enlightenment” on a religion barely represented within the RAN..then for Christs sake, get on with your thesis and piss off.

    And, on that point. How many Muslims in the RAN? And, why is it that every time I see an article or photo involving Muslims in Pusses they seem to be in a group…like they are all posted to the same ship together? Are they allowed to stop work, lay out the mat and start praying? Why is it that they can wear a head covering when there are innumerable religions, beliefs and downright ridiculous head coverings that could easily be incorporated…I’m a big fan of a Tam o Shanter…being Scottish heritage ‘n’ all.

    But enough of that gratuitous B/S…you, Admiral Barret are a disgrace, and you Captain Shindy (probably your suggestion)need to calm down and…well write a thesis for you next degree.

    Sorry, in the excitement of it all I’ve forgotten Captain Mona Shindy…Well darl, you and yours have really pulled the wool over their eyes. And as a passing aside, what half asleep Quartermaster/Quartermistress (if they still have them) would know the difference between Mona Shindy and Charlie Hebdo coming onboard at 0200 wearing a ‘hijab’.

It is ridiculous they want to live here, but they want how they lived in where ever the hell they came from with things like sherry’s law and they refuse to assimilate. If they want that kind of crap, go back to where you freakin came from. We need to start exporting the islami moooselims out of here before it is to late. We can start with the moron in the white house, because he is one of them and the sooner he is out of office, the better. We should send him back to Kenya….

      This one in particular, what is she going to do if she is in charge of a Man o’War and happens to run into a muslim war vessel (Heavens Forbid|) First of all a prayer session, then some talk to the “peaceful” enemy, then more prayers, and all this time the enemy is throwing shells etc at her. One shudders to think.

  21. More than 90% of mention to jihad in the Koran and Hadith refers to the violent instances.

    Ibn Taymiyyah, the extremely influential medieval jurist and intellectual godfather of many the Muslim loonies today, wrote, “Since lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way must be fought. As for those who cannot offer resistance or cannot fight, such as women, children, monks, old people, the blind,handicapped and their likes, they shall not be killed unless they actually fight with words (e.g. by propaganda)”.

  27. Why does the Chief of Navy need a Strategic Advisor on Islamic Cultural Affairs for? Really how many serving members are muslims, that he need an an Islamic Cultural advisor? Is he fair dinkum or is this just another political stunt.

    I left the navy in 2004 after 23+ years and I never saw anybody wear hajibs with their uniform before, and this person is a four ring captain which means at least 20-25 years service and now all of a sudden this is standard wear. Where has she been hiding, no where in the fleet.

    • Do Governments cause dislike or do Muslims bring it upon themselves.
      A post I posted seems to be getting a few likes .. thought maybe you might want to know what quite a few of us think >> I wrote this after I saw Muslims blaming Government for their dislike.
      Their Muslim groups are just as much a problem to Muslims as ISIS is … Muslim groups promote the Berka .. Halal Tax .. Changing Australian Customs so that they don’t get offended in OUR land on OUR soil.
      Australians love BACON and we are sick and tired of you lot trying to take it of the menu.
      Either you get a Born again Muslim faith going that does not believe in beheading, dismembering, pedophilia, abusing woman, hiding them under Berkas etc .. and maybe then you might actually be able to blend with ALL the other Multicultural people in Australia

      But until that happens .. it is OBVIOUS THAT MUSLIMS DO NOT BLEND MULTICULTURAL Y as it is AGAINST THEIR BELIEFS …

      “A quote from the Qur’an is then shown. It reads: ‘The penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger… is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land.’”

      and as for proof of MUSLIMS DO NOT TRY OR WANT TO BLEND …
      tell me the following is not true .. and youu wonder why people here detest Muslims .. Got nothing to do with the Government .. and EVERYTHING to do with MUSLIMS

      The Tel Aviv bus attack:was a Muslim
      The Shoe Bomber was a Muslim The Beltway Snipers were Muslims
      The beheading of two Japanese hostages was a Muslim
      The Paris and Australia shooting was a Muslim

      • Marta; You took the words right out of my mouth… “We are inviting the Foxes in to the hen house” Brings to mind an old Roman incident that involved a high ranking soldier called ‘BRUTUS’…

      • So right… our governments pander to this small minority and it only makes them more bold to push for more. Those who claim to have been in Australia for generations are reminded that there was jihad here on New Years Day in 1915 when two of their brothers ambushed a trainload of women and children on their way to a picnic, killing and wounding 11 people before they were shot dead by police and Rifle Club who happened to be practicing at the range that day. Interesting to note that they pick soft targets, unarmed civilians, using bombs and indiscriminate killing, all in the name of Islam. At the Runaway Bay shopping centre I saw a Muslim woman in a burka with a child’s stroller at Best & Less putting clothes into the back of the stroller… stealing from indifels is OK. I reported it to the store who said go to shopping centre security after she walks out with the stolen clothes and no receipt. But security said he can do nothing because she would complain of racial discrimination! We don’t need them here. Just look at the increasing problems Europe is having, getting worse as the thousands of economic refugees from North Africa are nearly all…. you guessed it… Muslim.

      • I so do agree with you on all of these but here is another one, Australian people do not like having to put up with all this, they are trying to justify themselves its not they fault, our country wasn’t like this a few yrs ago before we had all the illegal immigrants coming to our shores and getting a big hand out from the Labor Gov well say who’s to blame then?? I don’t like either of them, Muslims or Labor.

    • Come on we are real Australians our men and women fort for our country and proud of their uniforms And they still are So come on Aussie Aussie Aussie

  29. I think some of your “interpretations” about what Captain Mona Shindy meant went a little too far.

    On the other hand, no “interpretation” of Cpt Shindy’s comments were really needed, she clearly was far too accommodating to the extremist viewpoint and far too ready to shift the blame back to the wiser community.

    The Hindus, Jews, Sikhs, Zoroastrians and those bloody Presbyterians, don’t seem to be having the same sort of problems needing large amounts of government cash or community tolerance to fix.

  30. No wonder were in deficit, who knows how much this unnecessary is paid ” Strategic Advisor on Islamic Cultural Affairs”, surely 90K Plus super and benefits! To quote a clever fable: ‘If a fox is preaching, beware of your geese’.

    • El – the salary for a naval Captain is about $160K per annum – plus whatever allowances she might be entitled to.
      I’d say she’d be on about $160K per annum, or thereabouts.
      Your taxes at work.

    • That’s what I would call all that crap Jordan but I doubt the Islamic advisor would allow him to look it up preferring instead to give her own interpretation as she has with the rest of what she has to say

        Yes indeed Vice Admiral Barrett look it up for yourself, for if you don’t the day will come when even your grandkids will curse and disown you for your BLATANT IGNORANCE

      • Even worse, his absolute stupidity.

  32. it is strange how this woman could wear a uniform (which means one) for my guess 15 to 20 years and then wear her white rag around her head and sy it is part of a uniform. Obviously the previous military experience did not teach her anything. Item 14 is an eye catcher and by even appointing an Imam by the government to promote the faith of Islam in the Military, which is the way it is always described, is directly against section 116 of the Australian Constitution. So is the introduction of a Hijab.

    If it is to be a cohesive new found military, Maybe all the men should be in leathers an the women in Burkhas.That is uniform.

    • They allow this in the Navy but Australian citizens cannot have tattoos in the police force. Tattoos are so much better just saying!!

      • just saw your post Sonia dont know if i read it correctly ,but we are visiting Brisbane and saw 3 police officers ,one was a women with a Tattoo on her neck ,thought it strange but maybe things have changed

      • Not correct Sonia. Plenty of cops have tats – ex-Army, Navt etc

    • Chaplains are not against 116 even though you need to be ordained clergy of a recognised religion.

      I’m not against a Muslim chaplain wearing a hijab but this chick is, from the above, an apologist for terror. THIS woman should be sacked and a real moderate put in her place.

      • Jonas – good luck in finding a real “moderate muslim”.
        You’ll find unicorns and rocking-horse poo first.

      • There is no such thing as a moderate muslim. Ask any muslim which law is the first one they follow in Australia. ALL will say sharia.

      • John, of course there are moderate muslims. They are the ones who have just run out of ammo.

    • What about Jews and Catholic religious people in the ADF wear crucifixes and stars of David?

      • After all we are a christian country 1st, sorry to say moderate Muslims are very few and far between, and that includes service personnel

      • Yes, they CAN wear them, but they are not allowed to show when wearing the uniform.

      • They wear those religious symbols under their clothing.

    • Copy and paste this on ALL muslim stories! Flood them with the truth!
      The Shoe Bomber was a Muslim
      The Beltway Snipers were Muslims
      The Fort Hood Shooter This may be relevant here. Why should we oppose halal? One reason:
      Article 9 of the human rights act states freedom of and freedom from religion and religious interfere
      nce. If halal produce are sold without our consent and knowledge and funds a religion we do not want to be part of that is a violation of our human rights. BOYCOTT any of the following and others alike that are halal CERTIFIED. Sunraysia/ Sanitarium/MacDonald cadbury/Coles/Woollies they are abusing consumers by forcing us to buy halal CERT foods. Their practice are dishonest, unethical and immoral. They don’t show that they are halal CERT because they don’t logo they produce with the halal logo. Boycott all those stores and the like. They are supporting evil Islamic ideology which, is enemy’s of our freedom and way of life and a threat to Australia. Therefore, whoever are halal CERT are aiding the spread of Islam and are traitors of consumers.was a Muslim

      • They still do not want to admit the truth about Islam. Hard to believe that our moderates have sent more of their children to fight for ISIS than we have Aust armed forces to combat then there. How is it the kids are True Moslems and their parents are not. What rubbish!! If you are a Moslem, you follow the Koran that tells us all that ISIS IS ISLAM!!

    • Do our armed services also have Indigenous Advisers, Irish Advisers, Vietnamese Advisers, Polish Advisers?
      Are there Jewish Advisers, Roman Catholic Advisers, Callithumpian Advisers?
      There seems to be more than a smattering of discrimination here, none of it positive.

    • Clearly Captain Shindy should be promoted to Rear Admiral and placed in command of a renamed warship, HMAS Islamic Diversity, crewed by the hundred or so Muslims in the RAN and deployed to the Persian Gulf. There megaphone nautical multicultural verbiage from Admiral Shindy should soon end the shindigs between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

      The departure of this vessel could provide an extended photo opportunity for Malcolm Turnbull to extoll the indelible and longstanding Islamic traditions of the Royal Australian Navy.
      Perhaps sundry Coalition and ALP MPs could publicly convert to Islam, both Sunni and Shia varieties to demonstrate party political diversity.

      Anchors aweigh or Allah “on water”.
