A BRISBANE Islamic school has banned the national anthem at assemblies and sacked the teacher who asked for it to be played, The Courier-Mail can reveal.

Australian International Islamic College teacher Pravin Chand was sacked in November, four months after his proposal for students to sing Advance Australia Fair was ruled to be against the "Islamic view and ethos".

A memo sent to teachers at the Durack school in July and obtained by The Courier-Mail, also said "the singing of the anthem will be put on hold".

How ballsy is that? If you don’t want to hear the Austrialian National Anthem then bo back to the Middle East or whatever part of hell you came from.

Leftists freely admit that assimilation is anti-multicultural and loudly speak out against the concept.

Aussies are good, tough people. Why are they putting up with this? Better yet, what would we do?

Unless they’re part of an embassy representing another country, they should refrain from their public protest of Australia, and maybe they should just fold their tent and go home.

One of the things that you have to remember is that the average Muslim can become a world class terrorist in seconds.

That is a good question. I spent a few months with the Aussies and these guys would not put up with this kind of crap for one second. I can't begin to guess what changed them.

Perhaps this was done because they can't ululate to it?

Muzzies just love to spread goodwill, togetherness, friendliness and respect for others everywhere they go, don't they?

Hopefully I don't need to add a 'sarcasm' tag to that.....

In my angriest moments I sometimes believe that. The truth is that the Muslim world is huge and there are lots of voices. Westerners are very angry now, and scared.

I hope the Australian taxpayer/government will also put on hold any funding from "public" sources for this "school".

Fair enough. Somebody needs to set a powerful PA system up outside this place and blast Jimmy Barnes and Cold Chisel at them 24/7 until they’re BEGGING to hear “Advance Australia Fair.”

Heh, heh... The "Durack School..."

Well, in Russian the word "Durak" (slightly different spelling, I admit) means: a fool. ;-)

Advance Australia Fair was ruled to be against the “Islamic view and ethos”.

And they feel the same way about God Bless America.

Some day, maybe sooner than we think, more nations will awaken to the need to take a very strong stand against this crap.

One flaw. Noöne ever begs to hear “Advance Australia Fair” instead of Barnsey. Worst. National. Athemn. Ever. Me: "How did it win? Noöne I know voted for it."

My ranking

Even so, the madrassa is way out of line.

Virtually all private schools in Australia receive government funding, and I am sure this one is no exception.

The previous Howard government made it a condition of funding that all schools fly the Australian flag, but set no requirement concerning the playing of the National Anthem. I doubt the Rudd government will have the guts to extend the requirement, but I’d be glad to be proven wrong.

The school I teach at plays Advance Australia Fair, God Save the Queen, and the school’s hymn at almost every assembly (Advance Australia Fair is always played, the other two may be omitted for short assemblies).

It does. In Islam the only “REAL” state is the Umma - the community of believers (in Islam). Everything else is false.
