Are We on Stolen Land? Tell that to the Berbers

Last month, Greens Senator Dr Mehreen Faruqi spoke some of the most misguided and divisive words heard in parliament in recent times.

Greens Dr Mehreen Faruqi She said: ‘We are subject to rules that white people never are’ and claimed that a ‘culture of online harassment, bullying and toxicity now targets everyone who is not a straight white man’.

As Carl Sagan put it, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Following his inaugural speech only days before hers, Senator Fraser Anning copped disproportionate amounts of flak from the media and from Liberal and Labor MPs with lengthy condemnation speeches in both houses of parliament followed by censure motions.

Being a ‘straight white man’ clearly didn’t help him. If anything, it worked against him. By contrast, Dr Faruqi, a self-proclaimed ‘brown, Muslim, migrant’ has copped nothing of the sort for her own divisive words. And that, of itself, is the proof that her portrayal of ‘white privilege’ is dubious at best.

Her speech begins with: ‘We are gathered here today on stolen land’. Wrong. Australia was lawfully conquered and settled by the British Empire in accordance with the international norms of the old world order. That was a ‘might makes right’ world. Whoever could raise an army and conquer land did so. Muslim Arabs and Turks have had their fair share of conquests, as have Christian Europeans. The Treaty of Westphalia in 1648 sowed the seeds for the modern concept of territorial sovereignty within demarcated borders. Though it wasn’t until 1928 under the General Treaty for Renunciation of War as an Instrument of National Policy that territorial acquisition by force was first attempted to be outlawed through consensus among international signatories.

Otherwise known as the Kellogg-Briand Pact (after its authors US Secretary of State Frank B. Kellogg and French foreign minister Aristide Briand), this 1928 pact of course didn’t succeed in immediately putting an end to all war. In fact, World War II, the most destructive of all conflicts still managed to occur only a decade later. Yet the importance of the pact came in its aftermath.

Shortly after the emergence of the United Nations, its Charter went on to guaranteeing ‘territorial integrity’ to member states. In the process, any territory acquired before the 1928 pact was deemed lawfully conquered under a ‘right of conquest’. Borders essentially became frozen in place and future conquests were made unlawful.

This prohibition was not applied retroactively. Doing so would have thrown the entire world into turmoil since virtually every piece of land has, at some point, been conquered by outside forces – or to use Dr Faruqi’s rhetoric, ‘stolen’.

Since Australia was settled in 1788  – a century and four decades prior to the cut-off point for lawful conquests in 1928  – its territorial legitimacy has never been in doubt. Hence, there are no legal or historical grounds to think of Australia’s founding as land ‘theft’.

As someone who identifies as a Muslim, Dr Faruqi should know of Islamic civilisation’s own territorial conquests far beyond the outskirts of Mecca in the 7th century stretching all the way to Spain in the west and China in the east.

Does she believe the Arabic-speaking Islamic countries that today stretch across North Africa, having conquered and replaced the indigenous Egyptian, Carthaginian, Berber and Nubian civilisations are all ‘stolen lands’? Does she believe that Iran, once home to an indigenous Avestan-speaking Zoroastrian culture, is ‘stolen land’?

There was once an indigenous Hindu civilisation in Dr Faruqi’s own country of origin, Pakistan. Islam was first introduced in the region by Umayyad conqueror Muhammad Bin Qasim in 711. Does she believe that Pakistan is built on ‘stolen land’? One wonders, was Dr Faruqi not aware of Australia’s colonial history prior to her arrival? If so, why bother choosing to migrate to a country whose historical foundations fill you with such moral dread?

It is hypocritical to refer to something as ‘stolen’ while continuing to benefit from its use. It is literally the equivalent of driving around in a stolen Rolls Royce while simultaneously complaining that it is stolen. Since she has a problem with British colonialism, it defies logic why she would leave her country of origin, that was freed from British rule in 1947, to then end up in Australia which still carries the Union Jack on its flag and has Queen Elizabeth II as its Head of State.

Worse yet, she goes on to declare: ‘I bring to this chamber my track record on shaking things up and shifting the agenda on issues as diverse as decriminalising abortion, drug law reform, LGBTQI rights, the right to die with dignity and protecting our environment.’

With the exception of protecting the environment, literally everything else on her list is at complete odds with Islam. There isn’t one credible scholar of mainstream Islamic jurisprudence from any one of the four Sunni (Hanafi, Shafi’i, Maliki and Hanbali) and three Shi’ite (Ithna Ashari, Isma’ili and Zaidi) schools of thought that has ruled in favour of abortion, drugs, same-sex marriage, gender fluidity and euthanasia.

What Dr Faruqi seems to be following isn’t exactly ‘Islam’. It’s her own ideological fusion tinged with cultural Marxism, third-wave feminism and post-colonialism which she thinks is Islam when she boasts in her speech of being ‘unapologetically… a brown, Muslim, migrant’. This alliance between secular Muslim activists and the far-Left isn’t one based on strict theological, jurisprudential or moral consistency. They’re not united by common values so much as they’re united against a common enemy; that is, Anglo-Celtic, Judeo-Christian Western civilisation.

As long as secular Muslim activists are provided a platform by the far-Left to fight imaginary ‘racism’, ‘white privilege’ and ‘colonialism’, they will continue to appropriate the values of the far-Left into their political goals without shame even if that means deviating from established Islamic jurisprudence.

The radicals are easy enough to identify. It’s their secular counterparts that are often more dangerous in the long run, because they’re the ones who end up being elected to parliament and then use the institution as a vehicle to advance their goals. By her own admission, Dr Faruqi’s speech was precisely that.

Bettina Arndt : Conservative bigot on campus tour

LaTrobe UniversityLast month a bedraggled bunch of chilled protestors gathered on the frosty lawns of La Trobe University protesting the proposed talk on campus by ‘conservative bigot Bettina Arndt’. Funny that. Here’s a conservative bigot who spent her early career being accused of being a sex fiend and was once banned for two years from live TV and radio for mentioning unmentionable topics.

I’ve come the full circle, previously in trouble with the conservatives for talking too openly about sex and now in strife with the fainting-couch feminists who control our universities and deny women any agency in determining their own sex lives. These social warriors are presenting our campuses as unsafe for young women, claiming they need protection from predatory males – even in the face of the dismal failure of the Human Rights Commission’s million-dollar survey which found not a skerrick of a rape crisis. The survey found 99.2 per cent of female students reported not a single incident of sexual assault in the preceding two year period, not even an undesired touch or grope from a stranger on the train en route to campus. The only real complaint was an excess of unwanted staring.

Yet they have bullied the universities into endless virtue-signalling exercises pretending the emperor still has clothes, with 24-hour rape help lines, counselling services and sexual consent courses.

When La Trobe cancelled my scheduled talk about the rape crisis to the student Liberal Club, the administration claimed my presentation failed to align with the values of the university and its campaign against sexual violence. The talk is now going ahead. But as I write, Sydney University has been stalling for twelve days, claiming that the Liberal Club’s application for a venue for my scheduled talk on September 11 was still being processed. Normally clubs are given venues for such talks within days. No doubt the university is hoping that if they stall the problem will go away but when I alerted the press to what was happening, VC Michael Spence announced the student group would be charged for extra security. So, the conservative students are to be punished for the aggressive actions of the feral activists.

We now have a generation of students being indoctrinated through sexual consent courses to believe every sexual interaction, the slightest kiss or touch, or progress towards further physical intimacy must be preceded by a yelp of enthusiastic consent – otherwise we’re talking rape. Never mind that this means that the intimacy most of us enjoy must be rape.

This is preparing the groundwork for pushing these ‘yes means yes’ concepts into law. Already the NSW Law Reform Commission has been asked to consider enthusiastic consent requirements as part of a review of sexual consent laws. The Commission has been flooded with submissions, particularly from women’s groups and academic lawyers supporting these changes, with only a handful of brave people speaking out against them. Yet legal authorities across the United States are now expressing concern about the damage to due process rights for the accused from these new affirmative standards which have been adopted a number of American states and an estimated 1,400 universities. Recently 28 of the Harvard Law School faculty published an open letter denouncing the shift in the burden of proof that has resulted from such laws.

Enthusiastic consent laws are only one tiny plank of the feminist campaign. In the past year, we’ve seen universities caving in to the pressure to have committees take on the role of investigating and determining sexual assault cases, using ‘victim-centred’ investigative practices. I spent eight months last year supporting a PhD student at Adelaide University under investigation by one such committee which had the power to withhold his degree if he failed to cooperate.

Earlier this year over 150 American criminal lawyers, law professors and scholars signed an open letter denouncing these victim-centred investigative practises. ‘By their very name, their ideology, and the methods they foster, “believe the victim” concepts presume the guilt of an accused. This is the antithesis of the most rudimentary notions of justice. In directing investigators to corroborate allegations, ignore reporting inconsistencies, and undermine defenses, the “believe the victim” movement threatens to subvert constitutionally-rooted due process protections,’ said the letter.

Last month, at an international conference on men’s issues in London, a chilling speech was given by retired social worker Patrick Graham who, along with four elderly men, spent years living with the fall-out from false allegations from a delusional woman accusing them of being part of a paedophile ring. Graham had never met his accuser who has admitted to making multiple previous false rape accusations. Her bizarre accusations against the men included torture and forced abortion, never investigated by the police. The case collapsed when defence lawyers were finally given access to communication between the police and the accuser showing how readily the police were duped by her absurd delusions. Despite the case being dropped the false accuser retains her £22,000 victim’s compensation.

This was just one of a series of notorious UK rape cases dropped before trial last year following revelations of deliberate withholding of key evidence by prosecutors and police, as part of feminist promoted victim-centred justice. In the ensuring scandal which followed, the former DPP stepped down and it was decided all rape and serious sexual assault cases should be reviewed. The police have now announced they are ditching their previous practice of ‘believing all victims’.

Whilst overseas the feminist push through the institutions is occasionally coming unstuck, here it continues unabated, with our universities as the breeding ground for a new generation of young women set to see themselves as victims, to tilt laws, rules and regulations in favour of women and demonise and deny basic legal rights to men. Speaking out on university campuses is intended to alert ordinary students, and perhaps staff as well, to the fake rape crisis as one small example of how the universities are being manipulated by feminist ideology so divisive to male/female relations and so dangerous for men. We have talks in the pipeline at University of Queensland, Canberra, and Murdoch, with many more student groups interested in hosting the events.

We’ve received a strong response to my crowd-funder to help student clubs with venue and travel costs, as more universities come on board. (https://www.gofundme.com/h9qp7) Please spread the word for more free speech on campuses.

Public Health Amendment (Safe Access to Reproductive Health Clinics) Bill 2018 NSW

Thank you to those who prayed and fasted and contacted members of the NSW Legislative Assembly earlier this month. Very sadly, after a marathon debate that lasted until the early hours of Friday 8 June, the Public Health Amendment (Safe Access to Reproductive Health Clinics) Bill 2018 passed easily with a final vote of 61 to 18.  As explained in this report compiled by the Australian Prayer Network, the imposition of 150-metre “safe access zones”around abortion clinics is a huge setback for the freedom of speech and the sanctity of human life in NSW.
Even though we did not receive the miracle that we had hoped for, we believe that our prayers and speaking out are never wasted. God does hear our prayers and He is faithful!  And so, let us persevere in prayer and keep trusting God for His results.

Mass Migration Is Harming Our Society Says UK Home Secretary

Mass Migration Britian Migrant-hordes-invade-Europe-620x380

Oct 2015

Mass immigration is making it impossible to build a cohesive society and is against Britain’s national interest, the Home Secretary will declare today.

Theresa May will warn the Tory conference that huge pressure is being placed on public services and infrastructure by economic migrants.

This sort of thing gets said all the time by Cameron’s government, but nothing is ever done about it for some mysterious reason.

Our own government has never explained the reason for record immigration intake and the Temporary Foreign Workers program.

But then like the TPP it’s not for our benefit.

Police in Germany are starting to go public

Police in Germany are starting to go public about the restraints authorities are placing on their ability to do their job among the migrant community without being accused of racism or using extensive force.

In addition, they say they are forced to downplay the seriousness of many crimes to create desirable statistics.

“At first, mostly families with children – who looked educated and spoke English – were coming here,” an officer who worked at the Munich train stations, among other “refugee hotspots,” told the newspaper Bild. “Meanwhile, 95 percent of refugees are now single men.”

The federal officer, identified only as Bernd K., continued, “One asylum seeker wanted to cut his fellow’s throat. But the crime scene report included only severe injuries rather than murder attempt. This looks better for the statistics.”

K. said in the last number of months on his beats, he only made one criminal charge against a native German, the rest were against migrants.

K. also works in Passau and Freilassing, located in Bavaria, where he said sexual harassment is rampant. “At the train station, women are sexually harassed and offended on regular basis. When we speak of an entry ban [to the area], they would shout on us: ‘You are not my police. You are a racist’,” he said.

The officer also complained that police, on order from their superiors, are not allowed to arrest these offenders or use any coercive against them.

“Our domestic rule is – better to let him run away,” he said. “Otherwise it will turn into a big bang someday, if it’s not there already,”

5 Shariah police’ free to ‘patrol’ German streets

Published: 12/10/2015 at 11:00 PM

Sharia no go zonesA German court has given the green light to “Shariah police” who “patrol” city streets in search of Islamic-law violators.

A judge ruled Thursday that Salafist men who were arrested in Wuppertal, Germany, in September 2014 did nothing wrong when they harangued passers-by attempting to enter clubs, casinos and bars. Members of the Islamic group wore vests with “Sharia police” printed across the back and carried “Sharia Controlled Zone” signs, BBC reported Thursday.

Migrants sexually harass German School Girls

Mayor dismisses Grandfather: “Don’t provoke them”

Published on 31 Jan 2016

Last Thursday a worried grandfather voiced his concerns about the increasing incidents of sexual harassment of young girls on their way to school by migrants in a meeting in the German town of Bad Schlema. His own granddaughter has been victim of sexual harassment and he fears it will be much worse when girls will wear less clothing in the summer or dress for physical education. The mayor’s reply angered the over 100 citizens who were present: “It’s simple, don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas.”

The crowd went furious, some mocked the absurdity of not being able to walk to school in your own town, some demanded he step down immediately. Later the situation escalated and the Mayor threatened to call the police and clear the room because of incitement of hatred (sources below).

He said it’s “technically not necessary to walk near the refugee shelters, there are alternative routes.”

Later the citizens went on how government actions leave them no other choice than drift off to the Right political spectrum. In many cases the so-called “refugees” receive more benefits, better housing and more legal protection than natives. They also face very little legal consequences for sexual harassment, theft and vandalism. Because of the refugee crisis, Germany’s new Right Wing Party “Alternative for Germany” went from under 4% to 12.5% in latest polls.

In Islam, any woman not wearing a headscarf or not dressing modestly is considered “fair game” and is therefore free to rape. The number of rapes has increased dramatically ever since Germany has opened the flood gates to millions of young Muslim men. Police are instructed to cover up the nationality of rapists – this tower of lies collapsed after the huge scale gang sex attacks in Cologne with over 500 women being attacked simultaneously.

More and more reports emerge of “refugee” gang rapes of children as young as 3. Just a few months ago a 7 year old girl was brutally raped on a playground in Chemnitz in broad daylight by an African “refugee”.

TRANSLATION EDIT: It’s difficult to hear, but he might be saying “in 10th grade” and not “under 10″. It”s difficult to make out. Either way he means his young granddaughter.
