Islam: Enemy Within (TROPô plays the victim card Down Under, too)
The Herald Sun [Melbourne AU] ^ | June 18, 2004 | Andrew Bolt

A report into discrimination against Muslims points plenty of fingers, but fails to find the real problem: Muslims who defame their religion.

We pay Bill Jonas at least $200,000 a year to be our conscience, and we sure get enough tears for that money.

This Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commissioner released his report this week into racism against Muslims and broke down when he told the ABC of one of the worst cases.

Jonas: "I actually find it very difficult to say 'cause I get too upset about it, but that seventh generation (Muslim Australian) being told to go back to the country … (stifled sob)"

Reporter: "I'll give you a moment."

Jonas (brokenly): "Every time, it just really upsets me when I read it."

If I may interrupt Jonas's tears, I'd say if a dill telling a Muslim to "go home" is the worst racism he found after grilling 1400 Muslims for horror stories, then we must be angels. And since a guest at his launch was Australia's Mufti, Sheik Taj el-Din el-Hilali, Jonas and his Race Police might now think of far more potent threats to our harmony to probe.

It's Hilali, after all, who said Jews were the "underlying cause of all wars", using "sex and abominable acts of buggery" to "control the world", and that suicide bombers were "heroes".

But, surprise, Jonas ignores the hate speech of Hilali and even more extreme imams. It seems he'd rather repeat wild claims that the real racists are mainstream Australians.

For instance, he's insisted 100,000 Aboriginal children were stolen by whites, a figure even "stolen generations" propagandist Robert Manne admits is "greatly exaggerated".

In this new report, he relies on HREOC's usual technique to disparage Australia, using anonymous, untested accusations of racism coaxed from people prodded to complain.

No claim is too flimsy to be "proof" we hate Muslims.

Even a bag-snatching is proof. So is someone's failure to get the first job she went for. So is an attack by three unleashed dogs in a park. So is a bus that didn't stop. So is road rage. So is the checking of bags at a shop. So is a police description of a wanted "Middle-Eastern man". So is a policeman writing a defect notice on a hotted-up car. So is the mugging of a woman who wasn't even Muslim.

the real problem: Muslims who defame their religion.

Muslim who come to the conclusion that Mohammed is not a prophet of God are the ones who defame their religion and thus are threatened with death by Muslims. The so called radical Muslims are the ones who uphold the teachings of Mohammed and thus are not defaming their religion.
