Mosque to get police guard for bikini rally (Lakemba mosque in Sydney)
Sydney Morning Herald ^ | 12/3/2006 | Taghred Chandab and Matthew Benns

Posted on 12/03/2006 6:02:56 AM PST by Dark Skies

POLICE have been asked to protect Australia's largest mosque next weekend because of concerns that a bikini march staged to coincide with the anniversary of the Cronulla riots may get out of control.

The caretaker of Lakemba Mosque, the Lebanese Muslim Association, says it is taking no risks, requesting at least 32 police officers to protect the place of worship on Saturday and Sunday.

Association president Tom Zreik said he met police on several occasions to ensure there would be adequate numbers of officers present to defuse problems and arrest troublemakers.

"We are treating this as something that is funny and hilarious but also taking precautions," Mr Zreika said of the bikini march. "Some people may see this as provocation and the last thing that we want is to see anyone being attacked."

The organiser, Melbourne grandmother Christine Hawkins, has asked women nationally to dress in bikinis and colourful beachwear and rally outside large mosques to show their disgust at comments by leading Muslim cleric, Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly, who likened women to "uncovered meat".

A white supremacist website has promoted the march. Members of Sydney's Muslim community began raising their concerns last week, with hundreds joining an internet discussion to find a "peaceful avenue" to protect their mosque.

Many Muslim women suggested joining the march in their hijabs and burqas to voice their outrage at comments made by Senator Bronwyn Bishop and Prime Minister John Howard about the way they dress. "We're really asking people not to bother coming to the mosque," Mr Zreika said.

"All this is doing is degrading women and giving men a great excuse to have a perv. There are better ways women can express their concerns."

In Cronulla yesterday members of the Lakembaroos sports club attended a barbecue at North Cronulla Surf Club to mark the progress of more than 20 Muslim lifesavers, who are training for their bronze medallions.

"If we didn't have the events of Cronulla last December in the back of our minds, we wouldn't even be conscious that the people here were of Lebanese background," Community Relations Commission chairman Stepan Kerkyasharian said.

"They look Australian, they are taking part in an Australian activity and you have to ask 'what's the problem?"'

The training is an initiative of Surf Life Saving Australia.

If the bikini-clad gals are carrying pork chops the scene would be complete.

Good thing the police will be there or the Muzzies would make the Rape of Nan-king look like child's play.

Why can't John Howard be our President? I'm sure he was really born in Tawas, MI.

American mosques need the same love and care our Aussie comrades have pioneered. Here in Atlanta,Georgia we have a brand-new huge mosque on 14th Street one block from our beloved Georgia Tech campus. There are plenty of geeks, greeks and co-techs available to wander over in the flesh or in drag TODAY. Chitlins and salted pork rinds are abundant in the quick stops.

The 14th Street mosque is a mission driven congregation of multinational spritually driven gentlemen. You may have recently read of their canadien outreach networking efforts with Georgia Tech students. Their HUGE mosque with vidalia onion shaped domes will be a MECCA in the southeast for recruitment and enrollment of followers for the next great wave of regional islamic enlightenment. It will also attract a wide variety of GS5s-13s in neighboring dwellings to qualify for their next advancement to less threatening posts.

I can think of several high-caliber ways women can express their concerns about muslims. Or should I say large-bore?

It seems (from the tone of the article) that the Muslims are doing this to protect the Bikini people, not necessarily the mosque or Muslims, from attack.

Sorry to keep asking these webpage questions, but there are continuing difficulties with making the page. Can you go, particularly if you use Internet Explorer, to http://www.freerepublic.com/~jedimasterpikachu/ and freepmail whether it looks organized or not to you. The width of the topic tables were set to 100% and the pixels of the non-table pictures were specified some minutes ago.

How is that misguided? You are obviously into illegal immigration (judging from your username). Many (very probably most) people against illegal immigration are not against it for particularly racist reasons. However, you ought to acknowledge that racists (of the European-descended variety) would also be against illegal immigration, along with sane people. Sometimes people who support bad causes can agree with good ideas.

A little bit of googling shows the website as "Patriot Alliance Downunder".

Realistically, if the "mainstream" groups do not speak out against what the Muslim immigrants are doing, other groups will fill the vacuum. If the white citizens of Australia get sufficiently alarmed, then they will support WHOEVER comes forward with a plan to deal with the issues, by any means necessary

From their website:

Kinda sounds like us.

This is how it should be. Muslims need to live just as Dhimmis used to live in Muslim countries...uneasily. Only if they are worried what the majority might do will they stay in line. This is regrettable for a democracy, but Islam is not compatible with our core values, and thus must be kept under greater scrutiny.

Protect the place of worship my foot. Those police are needed to protect the protestors. I hope there's a big turnout and it just blows all those muzzies minds; just melts them right down.

If they want that, they can go back to their own country to do it. Don't go establishing themselves in another country and THEN demand that they can set up their own laws and ignore the laws of the foreign country in which they are residing. That's what they want. They want to set up their own small country within a country until they are powerful enough for a coup.

Right... Just as soon as Muslims throughout the world provide protection for Christians and Jews in their midst.

It's long past due for Muslims to suffer the consequences of their actions and beliefs.

F'em all. The whole world needs to go "postal" on the shiiteheads.

Well, I'd suggest the Ladies of a Certain Age don some nice breezy shorts, a colorful and comfortable summer top. Or maybe one of those t-shirts with a bikini "painted" on the front. Muzzies think all women should wear wool tents in public.

Thank you! The fashion industry and the media is trying to push a male homosexual image of what is attractive. Women should have curves. I also think it also has to do with a warped sense of egalitarianism. If everyone should be "equal," they should look equal, regardless of apparel. That's why, in principle, I support the ideal of identifiably-different clothing between the sexes.

"A white supremacist website has promoted the march."

Ward Connerlly in one of his books mentioned how during the debate about affirmative action in the 90's, the leftists at one of the UC campuses set up a panel with the usual assortment of leftist retreads taking the pro affirmative action side of the aisle. Who did they invite for the con side? David Duke. Its a typical leftist tactic - paint the other side as being one that is populated only by racists and psychos and thus those who agree with the "wrong" side of the argument are akin to such losers.

She could just be naturally that thin. I used to go to church with three sisters who were all thin as could be and not one was anorexic.

That said, I don't find her all that attractive but not because she is thin. She just doesn't strike me as anything special.
