The Grand Mufti hath spoken (in Arabic)


If it wasn’t killing people, it really would be a laugh. Except it is killing people and the joke is on us.

Let’s take the latest shenanigans.

After the Parramatta terrorist attack, launched from the Parramatta mosque, Australia’s Grand Mufti and his posse descended upon the media today to issue a message to the Australian people. This was required because in the week since the ‘politically motivated violence’, as our new Prime Minister likes to call it, the political leadership of Islam in Australia has said very little.

True, the Australian National Imams Council did put out a statement a few days ago. But it was hardly clear about what went down, calling for an end to ‘speculation’ and instead simply extending sympathy evenly to the families of the deceased. Both the deceased.

ANIC statement

That’s nice.

The collective assembly of the nation’s imams found it a little harder to make any statement about the more important details of the deceased. For instance, there was not a peep about the fact that one of the deceased left the political establishment known as the Parramatta mosque and moseyed on down to the local police station with the intention of carrying out a brutal murder while dedicating the act publicly to the Divine Political Leader: Allah.

So I guess it’s fair to say that Australia’s Grand Mufti had a few issues to clarify today.

But that’s not what happened, despite the best efforts of the media to translate his message and his meaning.

The message had to be translated because the head honcho of Islam in Australia spoke in Arabic. And the media still had to translate the meaning because even after the Grand Mufti’s message was decoded into English, it was still nonsense.

Basically, the supreme poo-bah said that Australia, Australian security agencies and the Australian people need better dialogue and communications with the Islamic community.

As I mentioned, he called for this while speaking in Arabic.

I guess the take away is that the Grand Mufti believes the rest of us should start speaking Arabic if we don’t want to be gunned down on the way home from work.

This message does not seem to have gone down so well with Joe Public. It appears that ordinary Aussies with ordinary titles think that the Grand Mufti should learn to speak English instead.

Obviously, this is a ‘racist’ assumption to make. Who says Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed can’t speak English? Not he.

No, after the social media backlash at being lectured by the Grand Mufti in Arabic about the need for dialogue, the Grand Mufti made it clear: he can speak English. He just chose not to.

Ha! What a smack down. I suppose it’ll only be an hour or two before bleeding heart webpages start spewing forth columns about how the Grand Mufti has put all those racist Aussie yobbos back in their box.

See, they’ll say, he can speak English.

Instead, they’ll say, terrorism is our fault because of our inherent racism.

Unfortunately for the braindead apologists of Islam, they lack logic. And that’s putting it mildly. All this situation does is highlight that the Grand Mufti and the leaders of Australia’s Islamic community are supremely arrogant. It’s not that we are ostracising them. By its very actions, the Islamic community is demonstrating that it refuses to integrate with the rest of us.

It is an ‘us and them’ situation. But it’s all due to ‘them’.

It’s not that the Grand Mufti can’t speak English. Rather, he arrogantly won’t speak English.

Of course, this was not the most important story of the Grand Mufti’s press conference.

They ABC reported the big news this way:

ABC headline

The Daily Telegraph reported things a little differently:

Telegraph headline

Well, whaddya know? The Grand Mufti holds a press conference in Arabic and the media immediately reports two completely different stories.

As can be expected, the ABC interpreted whatever the Grand Mufti had to say with this meaning:  Islam is a religion of peace that condemns terrorism. It seems that the Daily Telegraph didn’t get this message though. Its headline was that the Head Honcho of Islam refused to condemn the Parramatta terrorist attack.

Not surprisingly, the ABC got it wrong.

True, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed’s interpreter did tell us that the Grand Mufti said this:  

We refuse and reject any form of terrorist activities.”

But then Dr Mohamed’s interpreter also told us the Grand Mufti, when specifically asked about the Parramatta terrorist attack, said this:

“We are not an investigation agency, we cannot redefine or readapt what happened.”

“We are not the agency that investigates and achieves what really happened. There’s not enough information so far about that. Without enough information, and given that we are not an investigating body, I cannot comment on that.”

So, what the Grand Mufti really said was that he does not know if the events that unfolded last week were a terrorist attack.

That does not sound like a condemnation. And it’s not.

He also failed to say anything about the fact that the most recent terrorist attack was launched from the Parramatta mosque, and he was silent on the fact that Hizb ut Tahrir is preaching its political doctrine from within this ‘place of worship’.

What we have here is a sick joke.

To make all of this worse, Australia’s Prime Minister offered to meet with Islamic leaders today. Instead of rocking up to that opportunity for dialogue, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed skipped it and sent along a ‘representative’ instead. He was too busy to attend because he had more important things to do, like lecturing the nation about its lack of dialogue with the Islamic community. And remember, the Grand Mufti lectured us in Arabic.

This arrogance and disdain should be well noted by Malcolm Turnbull. It comes a week after he ‘reset’ relations with Team Islam. It has responded so far by killing a police worker, refusing to condemn the attack and then giving him the flick.

The new Prime Minister has been taken for a fool.

About the only good news from today is that the duplicity of the Grand Mufti has made one of Australia’s Islamic do-gooders look stupid.

Late last year, Mariam Veiszadeh won the hearts of the Thought Police with her campaign to force Woolworths to remove singlets from its shelves because they carried a ‘bigoted’ statement underneath an Aussie flag: If you don’t love it, leave. Woolworths duly apologised and replaced the singlets with rainbows and hijabs.

But in the last couple of days, it seems every man and his dog has been repeating this statement in one form or another. I’m not convinced that any of the following people actually mean what they say, but hey, they still said it.

Firstly, it was Malcolm Turnbull’s go. He told us all in a press conference today that:

“If you find Australian values are, you know, unpalatable, then there’s a big wide world out there”.

Mind you, the new Prime Minister has also ruled out banning Hizb ut Tahrir in recent days, so it’s really open for debate about who he thinks this message might apply to.

Then it was Bill Shorten’s turn. He said in response to Prime Minister’s statement:

“If you really hate Australia well then you should go. I don’t think, though, that that advice is confined to people of one particular religious faith.”

Thanks Bill, us Catholics will take your advice on board.

Even the Grand Mufti’s got in on the act, telling someone today (but we are not sure who) to ‘stop messing with Australia’. Good for him.

Then there was chairman of the Parramatta mosque. Mr El-Kadomi said yesterday that he would state in his sermon today:

“If you don’t like Australia, you should leave.”

Who would’ve known that Woolworths was selling Islamic religious teaching on a singlet bearing the Aussie flag? Now that’s what I call multiculturalism.

Unfortunately, even in tolerant and diverse Australia there are ‘bigots’ who have to ruin the party for the rest of us. And we all know now that one of them is Mariam Veiszadeh.

Her whinging and whining last year has been made to look completely ridiculous by the Prime Minister, the opposition leader, the Grand Mufti and the head of the Parramatta mosque.

It’s called delicious irony.

Now that the fatwa has been issued that Woolworths should bring back the singlets, maybe it would be time for Ms Veiszadeh to apologise for being such a busybody. But I’ll doubt that will ever happen.

Nevertheless, it is a bright spot in a day that otherwise demonstrates the insanity in Australia will continue. As a result, more people will die. And Allah knows that best of all.

  2. I didn’t think porn was allowed on TV. I just saw the greatest love-in tonight on Q&A. On the panel was a Green saying how wonderful Islam is, a Liberal saying how wonderful Islam is, a Labor saying how wonderful Islam is, a soprano saying how wonderful Islam is, and, of course, a sheik saying how wonderful Islam is. There they were, all having PC “intellectual” coitus together, united as one by the same mantra that non-Muslims were to blame for the state of everything.

    It was a wonderful demonstration of taqiyya acted out by the sheik . He was asked if a Christian man could marry a Muslim woman. His mendacious answer? “Let them decide.” Come again? A Christian man can marry a Muslim woman? That’s a new one!

    Yes, the shaky sheik’s whole performance was one of outright lies and inept avoidance of the actual question…for those with ears that hear and eyes that see.

  3. The Honourable, The Prime Minister,
    Malcolm Turnbull

    Dear Sir,

    Recent events in Parramatta have shown the link between funds raised by the recent invention of the Halal Certification rort and the funding of terrorist cells in mosques in Australia. Surely it is time for the Federal Government to provide any Halal Certification so that no funds go from the majority 97% non-Moslem population to any domestic Islamic terrorist cells located in mosques.

    The link between the Halal Certification funds and terrorist fatalities has been proven in Parramatta, NSW. Now is the time to ban all non-Australian Government Halal Certification schemes and to introduce one Australian Government Halal Licence for any necessary foods in Australia to help prevent future terrorist attacks.
    Halal Certification fees fund terrorist activities in Australian mosques. Unregulated Halal Certification must be stopped and replaced by a proper Government system to prevent further innocent lives being taken by Halal funded Islamic terrorists groups.

    Halal is unnecessary anyway, see Koran 2:172 and 173, which says to eat the wholesome things Allah has provided, and whoever is driven by necessity to eat forbidden foods, intending neither to sin nor transgress shall incur no guilt. Allah is forgiving and compassionate.

    See this link for the Moslem perspective on Halal Certification. Note, the first 2:05 minutes are in Arabic, then the English version follows.

  4. Hi , I am a Muslim Shiite this mufti don’t represent all of the Shiite because their believes are different than ours . Even we can’t pray in their mosques . Also Shiite believe in the 3 books of God which are Torah, bible and the Quran .
    There is a verse in the Quran “[46] do not dispute with the people of the Book except in the best manner,81 save with those who are wicked among them82 and say to them, “We have believed in that which has been sent down to us as well as in that which had been sent down to you. Our God and your God is One, and to Him we have surrendered83 (as Muslims).

    • Yes and the koran also says deceive and lie to infidels when moslems are in a minority. Christianity is NOTHING like mohammadism. Totally the opposite. There is a simple solution: Expel all muslims from Australia now before they create more troubles. Longer version, convert them to Christianity. It could be mandatory for all immigrants to be given a copy of the Bible when they become citizens and for them to have to produce it to prove their citizenship.

    • Gina,

      Tell us what the following mean:

      1. Narrated Abu Huraira: ‘Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight against the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill me.””‘ (Sahih al-Bukhari. Book of Jihad 4:56:2926

      2. “People of the Book, now there has come to you Our Messenger, making clear to you many things YOU HAVE BEEN CONCEALING of the book, AND EFFACING MANY THINGS.” (Q5:115)

      3. “Fight against those who do not believe in Allah…of those who have been given the Book [i.e. the Jews and Christians] until they pay the jizya [i.e. the tax levied so they are spared death by Muslims] out of hand and are humbled.” (Q9:29)

      I don’t expect a response despite your conscience telling you that you should try and rebut my point that Islam is not a religion of peace and seeks to violently turn the whole world to Islam.

    • Gina now you know don’t you that K46 is one of the Meccan verses when Mohammed felt he had to pay lip service to fitting in with existing belief systems and you also know that once he had become a warlord in Medina then he could drop the facade and reveal his agenda. You know that don’t you so why the insult of treating people as idiots who will buy your agenda. Besides even being conciliatory K46 gives permission for Muslims to dispute with People of the Book, viz. in the ‘best manner’ which is code for proving to them that what Mohammed said trumped what was in their existing scripture. Sure back then as today there is the patronizing falsehood put forward by Muslims that Allah is God, i.e. Divine Love, but that was never a valid claim anyway as demonstrated by Dr Mark Durie and it was not something Mohammed could rule on. For in truth Allah is but a tribal deity, i.e. of the Arab tribes, and it is a source of puzzlement that a proud people such as the Persians going back to Cyrus and earlier still to this day bow down to an Arab warlord and his tribal god.

  5. Thank you Bernard for your courage in speaking the truth, even when our government suppresses it. It’s a relief to listen to some sanity.

  6. Let’s apply the principle of Taqiyya to the words of the venerable mufti of Oz. What’s Taquiyya you ask? Follow the bouncing ball…

    Taqiyya: “Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible…and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.”

    — Abu Hammid Ghazali

    And from the Man himself:

    “Allah’s Apostle said, “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?” The Prophet said, “Yes,” Muhammad bin Maslama said, “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). “The Prophet said, “You may say it.”
    – Hadith 5.59.369

    The moral of the story is, Is this Muslim, whoever he/she is, telling the truth or a porky pie? My advice is to assume, in matters of wrongdoing by a Muslim, it’s the latter.

  7. Bernard, I think it is important to point out the muftis ‘words of wisdom’ and apply them to mohammeds quran,

    e.g. the mufti said …… “any discourse which attempts to apportion guilt by association or sensationalizes violence to stigmatize a certain segment of society only serves to undermine community harmony and safety”

    mohammed’s quran says…..
    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Qur’an (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

    Qur’an (5:80) – “You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide.” Those Muslims who befriend unbelievers will abide in hell.

    Qur’an (3:28) – “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them…”

    Qur’an (3:118) – “O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people, they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you, if you will understand.” This verse not only warns Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends, but it establishes the deep-seated paranoia that the rest of the world is out to get them.

    Qur’an (9:23) – “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers” Even family members are not to be taken as friends if they do not accept Islam. (This is the mildest interpretation of this verse from the 9th Sura, which also advocates “slaying the unbeliever wherever ye find them”).

    Qur’an (53:29) – “Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world.”

    Qur’an (3:85) – “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”

    Qur’an (3:10) – “(As for) those who disbelieve, surely neither their wealth nor their children shall avail them in the least against Allah, and these it is who are the fuel of the fire.” Those who do not believe in Muhammad are but fuel for the fire of Hell (also 66:6, 2:24. 21:98).

    Qur’an (7:44) – “The Companions of the Garden will call out to the Companions of the Fire: “We have indeed found the promises of our Lord to us true: Have you also found Your Lord’s promises true?” They shall say, “Yes”; but a crier shall proclaim between them: “The curse of Allah is on the wrong-doers” Muslims in heaven will amuse themselves by looking down on non-Muslims in Hell and mocking them while they are being tortured (see 22:19-22.

    Qur’an (1:5-7) – “Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray” This is a prayer that Muslims are supposed to repeat each day. “Those who earn Thine anger” specifically refers to Jews and “those who go astray” refers to Christians (see Bukhari (12:749)).
