A special investigation by The Daily Telegraph in the wake of the London bombings found extremist literature on shelves near innocuous children's reading such as It's fun to wear a hijab.
One incendiary tome bought for $11, Defence of the Muslim Lands carries an endorsement from Osama bin Laden on its cover.
The book by Sheik Abdullah Azzam, found at The Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba, discusses the effectiveness of suicide bombings.
"The form this usually takes nowadays is to wire up one's body, or a vehicle or a suitcase with explosives, and then to enter amongst a conglomeration of the enemy and to detonate . . ." the writer states.
"There is no other technique which strikes as much terror into their hearts, and which shatters their spirits as much."
Bin Laden wrote that women "have proven themselves incapable" of giving birth to another man like the author, believed killed in a bombing in the 1980s.
Another book by the same author, Join the Caravan, contains similar themes. "For how long will the believing youths be held back and restrained from jihad?" it reads.
The Absent Obligation, by hanged revolutionary Muhammad 'Abdus Salam Faraj, also advocates individuals participating in martyrdom operations.
The black book discusses how self detonation differs from suicide, offering quotes from the Koran to support the claim. "Indeed, there is a vast difference between the one who ends his life due to his inability to bear the difficulties of life and its various tribulations and the one who offers his life for the cause of Allah."
The large Haldon St shop, associated with the Saudi-based Wahabi tradition of Islam, is close to the Lakemba Prayer Hall.
Members of the prayer hall have been interviewed by ASIO in the past. French terrorist Willie Brigitte deported from Australia in 2003 is understood to have worshipped there.
In the same bookshop, a 2002 book by migrant Omar Hassan is loaded with vitriol for his Australian homeland, which he says is a land of discrimination, victimisation, drugs, prostitution and gambling. Hassan describes migrating to Australia as a "life sentence" and claims being Australian is "something to be ashamed of".
Among his claims is a conspiracy between government and police to turn Muslim children into drug addicts "to wipe out the new Muslim generation".
A few kilometres away in Auburn, other distressing texts could be found in the IDCA bookstore on Auburn Rd.
At Mary St, Auburn, other books were found at the Islamic Science, Culture and Art Association. Texts included The Qur'anic Concept of War.
Isn't this written about Australian book stores?
It would be good to know exactly what is available in US book stores. If similar content is available here, this needs to be STOPPED.
I just ran that first "author's" name through Amazon and a book listings database; no hits. Ditto for the book titles. Must be some sort of Islamist samizdat thing.
That said, it's close to impossible to get written content banned in the United States. I wouldn't make any bets about the books' contents being outside the First Amendment.
Quotes like this no doubt: Quran 9:111 Allah has purchased the believers, their lives and their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise). They fight in Allahs Cause, and slay others and are slain, they kill and are killed. It is a promise binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and the Quran. And who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. It is the achievement supreme.
Quran 4:74 Let those who fight in the Cause of Allah sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the Cause of Allah, whether he is slain or gets victorysoon shall We give him a great reward.
There are many more sura's, and numerous hadith as well.
It's a shame to see this. I've had friends in AU as long as I've been active online, and I'm currently in an Aussie guild in EQ so many of my closest friends are there these days. I worry about them a lot bc the more I see, the more it seems it's coming their way.
Note to self, lose that weight and enlist already!
Google the title and you will find Islamic sites that sell this book.
Perhaps it's time for a good ol' fashioned book burning? :D
Though it shouldn't surprise me, a few of the quotes from the book reminded me of Democrat talking points.
The've been having muslimproblems in Au for a long time now. have you heard about the muslim gang rapes that go on north of Sydney?
If you follow the Aussie dailies, you'd hear of that stuff more often, or visit Jihadwatch/ dhimmiwatch.
this is from Australia, Char, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to discover this stuff or analogous trash on the shelves at large chain bookshops and/or at dedicated-mohammedian bookshops
Isn't it already on the internet ..??
We are in a duel to the death with the throat slashing barbarians.
I don't keep up much with their news beyond what I see on FR and what's talking about as casual chitchat in guild. Not enough hours in the day and I usually hear the biggest stuff within a day one way or the other.
That said, I've seen several articles here about those, just didn't expect it had gone from a horribly nasty but "small, local" problem to such a big, widespread one so quickly. As horrific as rape is, it's still orders of magnitude different from terror bombings. I'm not saying that to degrade rape or its victims, more like, I thought it was an isolated problem with a few bad areas where Muslims congregated and things like that happened. It was alarming before, and it's downright disturbing now.
This literature of hatred comes from Saudi, where the wahabbi send it throughout the world FOR FREE!
Here's the rest of the Australian story:
Tim Priest: Dont turn a blind eye to terror in our midst
Publication: The Australian
Date: January 12, 2004
The emergence of Middle Eastern crime groups was first observed in NSW in the mid 1990s. Before then, they had been known largely for individual acts of antisocial behaviour and for loose family structures involved in heroin importation and supply as well as motor vehicle theft and conversion.
The one crime that did appear organised before this period was insurance fraud, usually motor vehicle accidents and arson. Because these crimes were largely victimless, they were dealt with by insurance companies and police involvement was limited.
But from these insurance scams, a generation of young criminals emerged to engage in more sophisticated crimes among them extortion, armed robbery, organised narcotics importation and supply, gun running, organised factory and warehouse break-ins, and car theft and conversion on a vast scale, including the exporting of stolen luxury vehicles to Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries.
It probably took 20 years for the Chinese to become a dominant force in crime in Sydney. But Middle Eastern crime has taken less than 10 years. So pervasive is Middle Eastern influence on organised crime in Sydney that rival ethnic groups, with the exception of the Asian gangs, have been squeezed out or rendered extinct. The only other crime group to have survived intact are the bikies although they have now legitimised many of their operations and now make as much money through legal means as they do illegally.
With no organised-crime experience, no gang unit other than the South-East Asian Strike Force, the NSW Police turned against every convention known to Western policing in dealing with organised crime groups. In effect, the Lebanese crime gangs were handed the keys to the city of Sydney.
The most influential of the Middle Eastern crime groups are the Muslim males of Telopea Street, Bankstown, in southwest Sydney. The Telopea Street Boys and their associates have been involved in numerous murders over the past five years many of them unprovoked attacks on young Australian men for no other reason than the ethnicity of the victims.
They have been involved in all manner of crime on a scale we have never before seen or even contemplated. Ram raids on expensive brand stores in the city are endemic. The theft of expensive motor vehicles known as car-jacking is increasing at an alarming rate. This crime involves gangs of Lebanese or Pacific Islander males finding a luxury motor vehicle parked outside a restaurant or hotel and watching until the occupants return to drive home. The car is followed, the victims assaulted at gunpoint and the vehicle stolen. The vehicles are always worth about $100,000 or more, and it is believed they are taken to warehouses before being shipped interstate or overseas to the Middle East.
The extent to which Middle Eastern crime gangs have moved into the drug market is breathtaking. They are now the main suppliers of cocaine in Sydney and are developing markets in southeastern Queensland and Victoria. They are leading suppliers of heroin in and around the inner city, southwest Sydney and western Sydney.
But what sets the Middle Eastern gangs apart from all other gangs is their propensity to use violence at any time and for any reason. Unlike their Vietnamese counterparts, Middle Eastern crime gangs roam the city and are not confined to Cabramatta or Chinatown. And even more alarming is that the violence is directed mainly against young Australian men and women. It is plain that violent attacks on our young men and women are racial as well as criminal.
Quite often when taking statements from young men attacked by groups of Lebanese males around Darling Harbour, a common theme that emerges is that the violence is racially motivated: the victims are attacked simply because they are Australian.
I wonder whether the inventors of the racial hatred laws introduced during the golden years of multiculturalism ever contemplated the possibility that we, the silent majority, would be the target of racial violence and hatred. I don't remember any race-based charges being laid in conjunction with the gang rapes of southwestern Sydney in 2001, where race was clearly an issue and racial slurs were used to humiliate the victims.
Unbelievably, a publicly funded document produced by the Anti-Discrimination Board, titled The Race for Headlines, was then circulated. It sought to not only cover up race as a motive for the rapes but to criticise any accurate reporting on this matter in the media as racially biased. It worries many operational police that organisations such as the ADB, the Privacy Commission and the Council for Civil Liberties have become unaccountable and push agendas that don't represent the values that this great country was built on.
Many have heard of the horrific problems in France with an unprecedented outbreak of crimes among an estimated 5 million Muslim immigrants. Middle Eastern males now make up 45,000 of the 90,000 inmates in French prisons. There are no-go areas in Paris for police and citizens alike. The rule of law has broken down so badly that when police went to one of these areas recently to round up three Islamic terrorists, they went in armoured vehicles, with heavy weaponry and more than 1,000 armed officers just to arrest a few suspects.
Why did they need such numbers? Because the threat of terrorist reprisal was minimal compared to the anticipated revolt by thousands of Middle Eastern and North African residents, who have no respect for the rule of law in France and consider intrusions by police and other authorities a declaration of war.
The problems in Paris's Muslim communities are being replicated in Sydney at an alarming rate. Paris has seen an explosion of rapes committed by Middle Eastern males against French women in the past 15 years. The rapes are almost identical to those in Sydney. The rapes are committed not only for sexual gratification: there are also deep racial undertones, along with threats of violence and retribution.
What is more alarming is the identical reaction among some sections of the media and criminologists in France: they downplay the race factor and even gang up on those who try to draw attention to the widening gulf between Middle Eastern youths and the rest of French society.
That is what we are seeing in Australia. The usual suspects come out of their institutions and libraries to downplay and even cover up the growing problem of Middle Eastern crime. Why? Because these same social engineers have attempted to redefine our society. They have experimented with all manner of institutions from prisons to mental institutions and, recently, policing.
Some of the problems we now see with policing are the result of former NSW police commissioner Peter Ryan's dream of restructuring and retraining the force. The police academy was changed from a training college into a university teaching social sciences and very little else. Constantly, I'd see young police officers emerge from the academy with a view that as police officers they were counsellors, psychologists, marriage guidance experts, social workers and advocates for social change, but with almost no skills in street policing. Their training endangered not only them but also their workmates and the community.
Never mind that policing is about enforcing the rule of law. It's never been about analysing each offender for the root causes of crime. The police enforce the law and protect the community regardless of race, colour or religion. What we have seen in southwest Sydney is ethnic communities being policed selectively. The implications for this are frightening when you look at Paris. The French practised selective policing of a particular community, which is subsequently now out of control.
In February 2001, when I appeared before an inquiry into Cabramatta's crime problem, I gave evidence which at the time attracted the usual claque of ratbags from the ABC and their associates at The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as Sydney's Radio 2UE broadcaster Mike Carlton. I said that Sydney is going to be torn apart by gang warfare the likes of which we have never seen. Last year I was finally proved right, but I take no comfort from that. However, the criticism I received was unprecedented. I was a nutter, a liar, a racist, a disgruntled detective.
Of course, the critics still refuse to concede that we have a problem. They are still clinging to the multicultural theme. To highlight the problems with Middle Eastern communities in Sydney is to tear down the multicultural facade.
The amount of money spent on the multicultural industry beggars belief. It is a lucrative position for many. Governments pour huge money into anything that includes the word multicultural. Indeed, the police department, like other government departments, spends vast amounts on multicultural issues, jobs, education packages, legal advice, public relations and the rest. Having expended large amounts of money on multiculturalism, they are hardly likely to criticise it. Those that feed off multiculturalism are almost certainly not likely to question it.
That groups of Middle Eastern males can roam a city and assault, rob and intimidate at will can no longer be denied or excused. You need only to look at Paris and other European countries that have had mass immigration from Middle Eastern countries to see the sort of problems we can look forward to in years to come. My prediction is that within 10 years Middle Eastern crime groups will have spread and their influence will extend across Australia as they seek to expand their enterprises. There will be no-go areas in southwest Sydney just like there are in Paris.
Only recently I have seen quotes from senior police and retired police who claim that race is not the issue in organised crime. Those statements are stupid and dangerous. Organised crime groups, with the exception of the bikies, are almost always ethnically based any experienced detective will tell you that. Barring one or two local beach gangs, the days of Anglo-Saxon gangs are all but over.
I also predict that there will be a dramatic rise in gang shootings as rival gangs compete for turf and business. This will be done with almost complete disregard for police attention, as they are aware that the NSW Police Service has to be rebuilt from the ground floor. In the past three years we have seen the phenomenon of drive-by shootings, Los Angeles style. Not only are the increasing incidents a serious cause of concern, but even more so is the use of automatic weapons that spray hundreds of rounds at their targets. This is virtually unprecedented in Australia.
Indeed, the issue has become so serious that some of these Middle Eastern youth who are engaged in organised crime, and who have no regard for our values and way of life, may go a step further and engage in terrorist acts against Australia. The ingredients are there already. It is but a small step from urban terrorism to religious and political terrorism, as we have seen with groups such as the Irish Republican Army, with organised crime often being confused with terrorism.
I don't want to paint a story of doom and gloom. But, as a former policeman, I've seen the destruction that gangs can wreak on innocent citizens who want nothing more than to live in peace. I just hope we can trust the people in government and the police to ensure that we don't lose the values and the rights we have received from past generations.
Tim Priest was a Sydney detective until 2002. A longer version of this article appears in the January-February issue of Quadrant.
Thanks for your involvement.

I wonder how those "moderate Muslims" I keep hearing about in the antique media interpret those passages?
>>In the same bookshop, a 2002 book by migrant Omar Hassan is loaded with vitriol for his Australian homeland, which he says is a land of discrimination, victimisation, drugs, prostitution and gambling.

The nice thing about Australia is that it in many ways is just like United States. There are no prohibitions on leaving if you are not satisfied with the people or type of government.
You are not under a "life sentence". Pack your stuff up and leave as soon as possible.
