Get out of Australia, 'radical' Muslims told
AFP ^ | 24 August , 2005 | Lawrence Bartlett

Posted on 02/06/2006 6:01:50 PM PST by george76

Muslims who want to live under the Islamic Sharia law were told Wednesday to get out of Australia as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.

Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament.

"If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he said on national television.

Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off".

Muslim schools will have to denounce terrorism as part of an effort to stamp out home-grown extremism under measures announced after Howard's meeting with 14 Islamic leaders Tuesday.

Asked if he was prepared to "get inside" mosques and schools to ensure there was no support for terrorism, Howard said: "Yes, to the extent necessary".

Britain, shaken by the rail and bus bombings which killed 56 people, is debating new powers which could include closing mosques where clerics are suspected of supporting extremists and deporting those who glorify suicide bombers.

Now why is this so hard for so many European (and some American) leaders to say.

Plain, simple to the point, so simple in fact even barbaric Muslim Imams can understand this simply structured sentence. No one is forcing these barbarians to stay in a free western society.

Fantastic! I wish America was as smart.

However, we can't forget that there must be some kind of severe punishment for islamic dissimulation; they will lie and tell you one thing while doing another. Spaniards burned muzzies at the stake when they were caught lying about their intentions to give up islam.

According to their website. Very interesting.

Caribou Coffee became a public company after our initial public offering priced on September 28, 2005 .

Our majority shareholder since 2000 is an affiliate of Arcapita Bank B.S.C.(c), a global investment group founded in 1997 with offices in Atlanta, London and Bahrain, a strong U.S. ally in the Middle East and the headquarters of the U.S. Navy’s 5 th Fleet. Following our initial public offering, Arcapita continues to own approximately 61% of our outstanding common stock.

Arcapita Bank has provided Caribou with the necessary resources for continuing to expand our store base in the U.S. Arcapita has total assets of over $1.2 billion and has executed transactions valued at over $7 billion in three main lines of business – corporate investment (private equity), real estate investment and asset-based investment. Arcapita’s corporate investment line of business has invested over $1 billion in equity across 17 transactions totaling over $2 billion in transaction value. Current and past corporate investments span a broad range of industries, including consumer products, healthcare, specialized manufacturing and technology. Portfolio companies include Cypress Communications (a telecommunications provider), Church’s Chicken (a quick service restaurant chain), Cirrus Industries (a general aviation aircraft manufacturer), Loehmann’s (a specialty retailer) and TLC Health Care Services (a national home nursing provider).

Arcapita, whose investors are located primarily in the Middle East , makes its investments in a manner consistent with the body of Islamic principles known as Shari’ah. Consequently, we operate our business in a manner consistent with Shari’ah principles and will continue to do so as long as Arcapita is a significant shareholder.

In particular, we must comply with Shari’ah principles regarding money that we borrow from other parties. For example, our lease financing arrangement, under which we have obtained financing to fund our operations and expand our business, is structured in a manner that complies with Shari’ah principles. The structure of this lease financing arrangement is described in the prospectus relating to our initial public offering. Also, a Shari’ah-compliant company is prohibited from dealing in the areas of alcohol, gambling, pornography, pork and pork- related products.

"Could you please Are you saying Caribou Coffee is run by Islamic extremists?"

No.
But they are majority owned by an Islamic bank in the Persian Gulf.
The bank did have terrorist connections in the past but apparently has booted the person who is a bad guy.
Caribou is apparently operated under Shari'ah rules. From my limited understanding of the subject, it would be a the Islamic version of Kosher laws.

This is "progress" to the left. If Howard can control speech and teaching of Islam, commies can do that to
Christians to see if anyone bad talks sodomy or socialism. They will do it in the name of "hate" to Christians just as Australia must do this to contain the violence of Islam. Moral relativity...

Thinking about what the left has done here in race hate for power and preferences game; imagine what they will do with the power to directly control and arrest incorrect Christians and the power to create hate doctrines (multiculturalism) and inspire violence against Christians.

In this way, Islam will kill social freedom and Christianity in the West. The Left will leave Islamists alone and they will campaign against Christians. The division in Europe will be Islamic, socialist and commie versus everyone else. The jihadists will be the Left's Nazi brown shirt enforcers.

It all looks to me like what the history books will state as to what happened just before the war between Islam and western society on a massive scale.

We are in a race for time against Iran, nuclear warfare, and radical factions of Islam around the world.

Australia would be wise to expel all Muslims period. When the war starts they will ignore any promises they made and join the battle cry in the name of Allah, sacrificing their lives without regret in a blinding rage in which they will attempt to kill all the infidels for final glory.

Time is almost up, prepare yourselves for what is about to happen. We are being challenged on the field of battle to fight or die. There are no other choices, no negotiations, our enemy has no desire to do so.
