Mark Latham dials up the heat on the Defence imam

The heat is increasing over Defence’s decision to appoint a Hizb ut Tahrir sympathiser as the Defence imam.

Mark Latham spoke to 2GB’s Ben Fordham yesterday, stating this:

“The chilling statistic is that more Muslims in Australia have joined Islamic State as foreign fighters than have joined the Australian Defence Force. So the imam there doesn’t seem to be needed.

I’m very worried that he’s given any support to Hizb ut Tahrir and I also see where he’s provided support for introducing Sharia law through the family courts…

…I don’t think this is a very good appointment. He’s been there a while, he doesn’t seem to be getting any success. I think it might be time to discretely move him on and get back to the basics of a good fighting force…”


You can listen to the full interview here – it focuses on the Defence imam from about the 6:25 mark.

And Mark Latham and Ben Fordham are not the only ones reporting on this farce. It’s also hit Daily Mail with reporter Stephen Johnson writing today:

“The Australian Defence Force’s chief imam signed a petition protesting against a push by former prime minister Tony Abbott to ban Islamist extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Sheikh Mohamadu Nawas Saleem added his name to this petition in February 2015 after Mr Abbott proposed to prohibit the group, which campaigns for a global Islamic caliphate based on sharia law.

Now, federal Attorney-General George Brandis is again rejecting a call for that group to be banned, despite its recent calls for ex-Muslims to be killed and its advocacy of domestic violence.”

Hizb ut Tahrir should be banned. And the Defence imam should be sacked for backing them.

I’ll be launching a petition later today seeking exactly that.

  2. Islam is theocratic, therefore it cannot ‘submit’ to democracy. Muslims can engage in the democratic process as long as they do so in order to forward the cause of Islam.

  4. No muslim should be part of our defence and police forces, now that they’ve infiltrated these institutions and they can obtain sensitive information it can only go downwards from here on. Our country is being captured by these individuals. Has anyone asked about the religion these Sudanese gangs belong to? I’ll give one guess… not long ago I was talking to a bloke that come out of prison
    ( through my job) and he was telling me that the muslim gangs rule the prisons and converting people at an alarming rate. We’re in trouble.

  5. Our only recourse is to vote out our traitorous government and replace them with new parties who will outlaw Islam for its violent teachings.

    I do not care who you are. I do not care where you are from. I do not care how old you are, your gender, your religion, your political persuasion, your sexual proclivities, what you eat, how you dress, nor thousands of other things about you.
    However, when I am expected to change my way of living because you have come to live in my country, be assured, there will be discord between us.
    I will strive to be as tolerant as possible for as long as possible, but you will one day learn that my good will and tolerance is finite.
    Keep in mind that YOU came HERE – for whatever reason – so the onus is on YOU to assimilate with me…not the other way around.
    If you do not like our laws, customs, politics, religion – or any other thing, you are more than welcome to leave and return from whence you came, however, so long as you strive to live harmoniously, in this, your adoptive country, I wish you no animus.
    Lastly, if you should threaten me, my family, my friends, my way of life, my liberty, my country – or even my dog…I will use any and all means at my disposal to protect and defend them – up to, and including, taking your life!
    You have been warned!!

    • Beautifully written and probably expresses the thoughts of many Australians.

    • We are being threatened:you, your family, your friends, your way of life, your liberty, your country.
      The time to be warning is past.
      Now or never, we must stand up and fight for our values and our country before we lose them .

  8. I am devastated at the direction our country is heading. Can the “powers that be” not see the path they are taking us down?. I despair for our future and the future of the Western World. Islam has spread by the sword and will continue to do so.

      • many ALP members and some LNP members belong to the ” FAbIAN SOCIETY ” a group of misled nut cases who believe in “ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT ” you can see how that works in the EU. gough whitlam was a Fabian and it would not surprise me to see that our PM the honourable Idiot Malcolm Turnbull was a Fabian as he is very much left of centre. Humans Beings are naturally Tribal, that is how we survived when we came out of the trees, Tribalism is in our DNA and MULTI CULTISM IS NEVEGOING TO WORK and nations that arrived here Post WW2 were all CHRISTIAN CELTS and that is out tribe, MUSLIMS descended from the Turkmen and are not our tribe they will never assimilate as they live in the 11th century and are pig ignorant

  9. Why the heck does our “Attorney-General” support this rubbish. I certainly wouldn’t put any trust in someone who openly supports a cause that is, in essence, detrimental to the views of the the majority of Australians.
