"The chief weapon in the quiver of all Islamist expansionist movements, is the absolute necessity to keep victims largely unaware of the actual theology plotting their demise. To complete this deception, a large body of ‘moderates’ continue to spew such ridiculous claims as “Islam means Peace” thereby keeping non-Muslims from actually reading the Qur’an, the Sira, the Hadith, or actually looking into the past 1400 years of history. Islamists also deny or dismiss the concept of ‘abrogation’, which is the universal intra-Islamic method of replacing slightly more tolerable aspects of the religion in favor of more violent demands for Muslims to slay and subdue infidels"

Rudd $100 Million for Hamas $1.5million for Italian earthquake victims

Rudd promises to match earthquake funds

News.com.au
July 03, 2009 10:10pm

PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd has promised to match funds raised by Australia's Italian community to help victims of the deadly earthquake that devastated central Italy in April.
Mr Rudd addressed the Italian-Australian Fundraising Dinner in Melbourne tonight ahead of a trip overseas next week that will include an economic forum in the devastated Italian Abruzzo region.

The Prime Minister said the Italian community in Australia had already raised substantial funds towards rebuilding, with a radio-a-thon on national Italian radio station Rete Italia attracting $300,000 in one weekend.

"Where you make such an effort, the Government should also pitch in," he said.

"That is why I have decided that we will match the Italian community's fundraising efforts dollar-for-dollar up to a level of $1.5 million."

An earthquake of 6.3 magnitude hit the city of L'Aquila on April 6 this year killing nearly 300 people, injuring 1500 and leaving 40,000 homeless.

Mr Rudd, the patron of the Australia-Abruzzo Earthquake Appeal Fund, heads off overseas on Monday for meetings in Malaysia and Germany before he meets world leaders attending the 17-nation Major Economies Forum in L'Aquila.

He said he would see firsthand the consequences of the devastation.

"I will carry with me, on your behalf, a message of solidarity, support and goodwill to the Abruzzesi and to their future," he said.

Many prominent Italian-Australians attended the dinner, including former Victorian governor and Supreme Court judge James Gobbo, current Supreme Court judges Tony Pagone and Bernard Bongiorno and building magnate Bruno Grollo.

Mr Rudd continued his habit of delivering greetings in foreign languages telling the audience in Italian that "Australia wouldn't be the country it is without Italians".

Before visiting Italy he will meet with Football Federation president Sepp Blatter in Zurich to sell Australia as a World Cup venue.

He also announced Australia and Italy had signed a science research agreement on developing radio telescopes that aim to look deeper into the universe than ever before.

"And during my visit next week we will take the next step in that collaboration when Australia and Italy sign an agreement to provide for cooperation on the international Square Kilometre Array project, a cutting edge global project, to build a group of radio telescopes to help us look into the deepest history of the universe," he said.

"For us, having the home of Galileo Galilei on our side would be very important"


"That is why I have decided that we will match the Italian community's fundraising efforts dollar-for-dollar up to a level of $1.5 million."

If only Kevin 07 had of made the same commitment on behalf of Australian taxpayers that he made to Hamas / "PA" the INNOCENT Italian victims of a natural disaster would be far better off.

Kevin 07 has so far given $100 MILLION to his pals at the United Nations to re arm and re supply Hamas, so as they are able to kill more Jews,in their UN sponsored war on Jews, Christians and Infidels.

So if you are the innocent victim of a natural disaster,in this case an earthquake,and you live in Italy the home of the leader of the Catholic / CHRISTIAN/ NON Muslim world you get $1.5 million from the Kevin Rudd Marxist funded,United Nations subservient,Labor Socialist Government,however if you are committed to the elimination of Israel and ALL non Muslims,aka Infidels, Rudd and his pals will extract over $100 million of Australians taxpayers money and gleefully hand it over to MUSLIM TERRORISTS so as they are enabled to continue on their Godless murderous Satanic inspired rampage throughout the Middle East and eventually the western world.

Kevin Rudd's spin puts spell on Canberra press gallery

Imre Salusinszky
The Australian
July 03, 2009

KEVIN Rudd may have failed to emulate Bob Hawke's "love affair with the Australian people", but his honeymoon with much of the media shows no sign of losing its ardour after 18 months in office.

Rudd's triumph has been to water down a ruthless political will with a warm-and-cuddly persona that has been sold to the public on media platforms that were regarded as beneath his predecessor, John Howard.

Members of Team Howard, including the former prime minister, have been shaking their heads at Rudd's extraordinary exertions of spin and the tolerance of the Canberra press gallery towards the exercise.

Those more sympathetic to Rudd, such as former Labor pollster Rod Cameron, believe the Prime Minister's smooth ride has come courtesy of discipline and good management, plus the disarray among the Coalition.

Cameron sees Rudd's strategy of working the talk shows as a logical extension of Howardism. "Howard broke the mould by ignoring highbrow media and going to commercial talkback, and Rudd has just taken it a step further and gone to somewhat trashier radio and television," Cameron said.

The recent Rudd spin cycle involved the studied alternation between bloodthirsty displays in parliament over the OzCar affair and soft media appearances, such as last Sunday's effort on Rove, which included a photo-shoot with Sacha Baron Cohen's alter ego, Austrian fashionista Bruno.



See Kevin 07 endure the hard hitting and relentless questioning of none other than Rove,caution xxx it's not for the feint hearted.

Senior Liberal frontbencher Tony Abbott said yesterday it was not hard to tell who was the funnier - Rudd or Bruno - but added that it was harder to say who was the more "phoney".

While Rudd was attacking News Limited newspapers yesterday about their coverage of the OzCar affair and wastage in the government's $14.7 billion Building the Education Revolution program, he was following through on his on-air promise to TV host Rove McManus to send a Twitter with the line "It's Twitter time", which prompted McManus to reply: "You rule! (and not just because you are our elected leader)."

None of this seems to have aroused the suspicion, or even the scepticism, of much of the Canberra press gallery.

"He has had a very good run," Howard said yesterday of Rudd's treatment at the hands of the gallery over the past 18 months.

"Most working journalists will cut a centre-left government more slack than a centre-right government - that's the culture of the cohort. I certainly didn't have much of a honeymoon. There is a different culture, and I always knew that to be the case."

In stark contrast to Howard, whose medium of choice was talkback radio, Rudd has made a specialty of forums such as FM radio and Rove. His latest appearance on the Ten Network talk show was no doubt inspired by Barack Obama's Tonight Show appearance with Jay Leno in March.

"The reason I didn't do that kind of media is that I didn't think I would be very good at it," Howard told The Australian.

"But I also thought the prime minister oughtn't to do too much of that stuff. I took the view that my responsibility was to go on serious programs. Although I did do talkback radio, I didn't avoid the serious interviews.

"I had frequent press conferences and I would often go until they were getting agitated and wanted to file."

While there is certainly nothing wrong with a prime minister discussing his use of a hair-dryer with Rove McManus - or engaging him in exchanges via Twitter - that was not the universal judgment on Howard's talkback appearances with Neil Mitchell in Melbourne and Alan Jones in Sydney. In an essay in Stifling Dissent, a 2007 collection edited by Clive Hamilton and Sarah Maddison, Helen Ester argued that the Howard strategy of daily talkback appearances had "diminished other democratic institutions, including the parliament itself".

Based on interviews with a dozen senior Canberra journalists, Ester said: "Their perspectives show that the last decade has seen an increased focus on strategies to block and control access to information flows from the gaze and analysis of the critical expertise of journalists in the parliamentary round."

Howard said: "I used talkback radio, and of course some of the Canberra gallery resented that, because it removed them as gatekeepers. When you do news conferences, you are in the hands of editors and journalists about what is used. If you do talkback radio, at some point your argument cannot be filtered."

One claim frequently advanced against Howard's media strategy was that he avoided "hostile" interviewers such as Kerry O'Brien on the ABC's 7.30 Report.

"That's absolute nonsense," Howard said. "In the last few years I was PM, I can't think of more than a handful of occasions where he'd ask me and I'd say no.

"I don't think anybody would say Kerry O'Brien was a friendly journalist, but it was a serious political program."

Similar criticisms have not been directed at Rudd, despite his blanket ban on appearing with Jones.

"The evidence is he won't go on the program," Howard noted. "I also regularly went on (John) Laws, including in the early years when Laws still carried a torch for (Paul) Keating."

Jones thinks Rudd is running scared. He told The Australian yesterday: "Rudd won't appear on tough forums because he doesn't like criticism and he has no comprehension of detail.

"He's simply not across the detail. It's fine if everything's written down in front of him and he can go unchallenged, which of course happens in the parliament. But on talkback radio, you're not unchallenged.

"Kevin Rudd last week was talking about fakes and frauds. I think many Australians understand to whom those epithets appropriately apply. As for the business of appearing on Rove, no one can be critical of the program but you have to question whether that's the forum in which the Prime Minister is going to be asked to answer important matters of state. It's because he knows he won't be asked, or if he is it will be in a humorous and frivolous way, that he again finds this comfortable, avoiding the detail and the criticism."

Sydney public relations consultant John Wells said Rudd's exploitation of the talk show format showed a different temperament from Howard's, but also a generational shift.

"Rudd is much younger, has grown up in a different technological age, and the people around him are much more savvy at new media and the importance of having younger people vote Labor," Wells said.

"Rudd's performance on Rove was very good. He turned up after a week of absolute mudslinging in the parliament with Turnbull.

"They would have had that programmed in advance of that previous week, and having had the outcome they did and all the shenanigans over 'Utegate', it would have reinforced their thinking that 'We've got to get out of here and soften that harsh, argy-bargy parliamentary persona into a softer positioning'."

Howard's former chief of staff Arthur Sinodinos has been impressed, in a perverse sort of way, with Rudd's forays into that region of the media where presenters go by nicknames and the most profound issues are of the "what gets your goolies" variety.

"Rudd is very good on the spin and has a good machine for doing that," said Sinodinos, who now works in the finance sector and is being touted for a federal parliamentary career.

"He also feels part of his success was picking up that younger constituency, so doing Rove or FM radio or social media stuff is all part of continuing to cultivate that constituency. Rudd is being all things to all people.

"I think there are a lot of them (in the press gallery) who fundamentally are more sympatico with Rudd in terms of his social outlook and policies, but it's not clear they are giving him an easy run. A lot of them are quite sceptical."

Labor PR consultant Bruce Hawker sees a rhetorical gulf between Rudd and Howard driving their media strategies.

"Howard was like your family solicitor - no nonsense, almost taciturn," Hawker told The Australian. "He really wouldn't have been comfortable opening up on a program like Rove. Rudd is still finding his feet."

Wells believes Rudd has received a softer ride than Howard from the media - although he adds this could easily shift with longevity. One point he does make is that if a fake email had surfaced in 1997, suggesting Howard had sought special favours for a mate, the reaction would have been "hysterical" and would have survived the unmasking of the lie.

"If you relate it to children overboard, that was hysterical," Wells said.

But it is likely there are deeper cultural reasons why a lie against Rudd evaporated in nanoseconds, whereas a lie against Howard was guaranteed to linger in the political ether indefinitely.

Journalists, after all, have limited scope to shape the historical narrative, compared with the vast ballast of the intelligentsia in universities, non-government organisations and the arts.

A quick survey by The Australian has revealed nobody in any of these institutions is planning a book called Stifling Dissent or His Master's Voice just because Rudd has doubled the number of spin doctors employed by the government, or branded the work of Australia's most celebrated photographer "disgusting".

"The 1970s saw an almost irreversible penetration of some of those institutions by the Left, and you just have to find other means of turning it around," Howard said. "It creates an automatic scepticism and tension once you have a centre-right government, or a centre-left government that doesn't behave the way it is expected to behave, like Tony Blair."

Australian Prime Minister & Australian Labor Party leader Kevin Rudd, was successful in winning the Australian 2007 Federal Election.
Kevin Rudd and his party's success was due in no small part,to the overwhelming support of the Australian media and their hangers on in the Film,Arts,TV and "beautiful people" industries.

The 2007 Labor Party campaign was assisted by spin doctors and stratigists from American Democrats and approximately 100 foot soldiers from the Chinese Communist Party.

The same bumper sticker slogans and trendy one liners were employed by Labor,Rudd and their media groupies to convince (successfully) the Australian voters, that were later modified and used for the Hussein Obama Campaign in 2008,that there was something wrong with having the most prosperous and fastest growing western economy in the world,that there was something wrong with having pratically no unemployment, that there was something wrong with having NO illegal entrants via the Middle Eastern refugee boat people express, that there was something sinister or indeed "clever" about an Australian PM who dared say to the world and Muslim people smugglers "We will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances under which they come.",that there was something immoral for an Australian Government requiring that immigrants speak English and swear alligience to Australia and that the Australian culture be the paramount culture in Australia,that there was something wrong with the Howard Government having re paid the previous Hawke /Keating Labor Governments $96 billion DEBT and that it was even worse for the Howard Australian Government to have a $28 Billion IN THE BANK.

Some 2 years after Rudd's election the media spin doctors are telling Australians that an extra 100,000 Australians are now unemployed,Australians have lost 35% of their personal wealth since Rudd and his party of ex Union Officials,school teachers,affirmative action appointee's,"carers and sharers" took control of the nations purse strings, Australians are now in $300 billion DEBT and there is NO money in the bank,is, like their immigration policy,is a sign that the Rudd Governments economic policies are working.

Yes!!!! the Rudd Marxist Funded International Socialist Labor Governments policies ARE working, Australia is descending BACK into the economic and social dark ages that the Conservative Liberal Howard Government dragged Australia out of.

The Rudd Governments media cheer squads are reluctant to spruik the following on their tonight shows and ABC Kevin 07 infomercials,aka Hard hitting current affairs and investigative journalism.

Our pork pie PM revels in butchering the truth

Piers Akerman

THE Federal Police are investigating a fake email _ why not also investigate Kevin Rudd’s fake 2007 election policies?

There were the big promises and there were the little promises and all of them were dodgy. Remember that pledge to bring Iran’s rulers before the International Criminal Court at the Hague? That was a biggie. Out of left field but phoney.

Two years later and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is now brazenly facing down an uprising with barely a word from Rudd or Foreign Minister Stephen Smith.
Then there was the promise to save the Murray-Darling River system and the Great Barrier Reef. This was patently false. Nothing the Rudd Government can possibly do will increase rainfall to or alter the Reef’s fate.

Migrating whales off the NSW Coast are a reminder of the fake promise to send the Royal Australian Navy to protect whales from the Japanese whaling fleet.

Then there is the $21 million wasted on the false FuelWatch promise. The last bowser I passed showed unleaded was still close to $1.30 a litre and the last

news item I read indicated that the fuel companies were still intent on squeezing profits no matter what the Government was telling them.

Which brings us to GroceryWatch. Despite spending more than $13 million on a promise that was dead on arrival, the Rudd Government maintained this promise was still viable until it was put down last Friday when media attention was diverted by Michael Jackson’s prescription drug death.

GroceryWatch was an extension of the phoney war Rudd and Treasurer Wayne Swan waged against the former Howard government over inflation while the global economy was melting down.

Treasury’s modelling and Treasury’s experts failed to spot the trend as did Swan and Rudd. They were too focussed on the phantom Inflation Genie to notice what was happening in the real world.

Fortunately they had the Howard-Costello surplus to use as a cushion but that has not prevented them wasting the legacy of future generations on a reckless spending spree.

Remember Rudd’s promise to be a fiscal conservative? False.

Just look at the cost blow-out for his national broadband network _ from $4 billion to $7 billion to $43 billion _ to cover fewer households than the cheaper model promised by the former government.

Then there were the promises to give a boost to the alternative energy industry _ and the slashing of the solar energy rebate scheme before it was due to end, the phasing out of the LPG conversion scheme, the promise of flood relief to the NSW North Coast, the dental scheme that delivers less than the old plan and the cuts to rebates for those needing life-changing cataract surgery.

Still to come are the job losses which will flow from the flawed industrial relations changes and any sign of the government stemming the flow of unlawful arrivals on the north west coast.

Whatever happened to the promised openness and transparency that the Rudd Government promised to deliver? For that matter, whatever happened to Rudd’s oath: The buck stops with me?

If the AFP want to get to the Mr Bigs of fakes and phonies, it should go straight to the top and get a warrant to search the Lodge.

Liberal Party, (Conservative) opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull has recently shot himself in the foot, he fell hook line and sinker for an opportunity he and his dumb arsed advisers thought was too good to miss, the"Rudd / Grant email" was it seems, something Turnbull was prepared to caste aside all his legal brilliance and caution for,in exchange for the opportunity to deal Rudd a death blow, getting Rudd out of the way before the next federal election,as we all now know the email was a fake, yaddah yadda yadda blah blah blah.

If only Australia's media was as vigilant in telling Australian's before the 2007 election of Rudd's BIG LIE concerning the circumstances of the death of his Father and Rudd's slandering of the Docteors and Nurses who attended him in hospital for six weeks before he died,after he filled himself with booze all day,and then attempted to drive his car home,thankfully only wrapping his own car around a telegraph pole and no one else.

Personally I have great sympathy for Rudd's childhood circumstances and admiration for his Fathers attempts to provide for his family,they are similar to my own,what disgusts me is Rudd's manipulation of the facts of same for the benifit of some Labor / Communist Party "Dream Time Mythology"

Rudd's deliberate missrepresentation of the facts concerning his Fathers death,are, like his orchestration of the destruction of evidence concerning the gang rape of an Aboriginal child,what is now known as the "Heiner Affair",are but two of many insights that exposed his smirking creepy dishonest character, hey no wonder Australia's Hollywood Wannabees love him so much.

What of Treasurer Wayne Swan,Rudd's hapless bumbling treasurer ? Turnbull is surely not going to allow Swan off the hook just because he got it wrong on the Rudd / Grant email , even if the Labor media apolgists are prepared to do so, for Swan the email Turnbull was hoping was going to slit Rudd's throat,was indeed a TEMPORARY God send.

I am sure Rudd is more than glad he is not Wayne Swan.... btw. Wayne when does Federal Parliament resume again ?

Australia: Ban unAustralian burka "I abhor the burka, and the niqab. I hate what it does to women" Virginia Haussegger.

Ban unAustralian burka

By Virginia Haussegger
27 June 2009
This article first appeared in The Canberra Times, 27th June 2009

I’ve seen it elsewhere around the world, but I didn’t expect to see it here. Certainly not on a hot summer’s afternoon at the Canberra Centre. But there it was. A ghostly figure walking towards me, clad from head to toe in a heavy black niqab, black gloves and dark shoes. She was trailing along behind her husband and four little children.

The sight of this hideously shrouded figure in an Australian shopping mall is confronting and offensive. And it makes me angry, very angry.

I wanted to stop and ask why she had such disrespect for herself and our culture that she would hide her face and body under all that black cloth, designed to render her shapeless and inhuman. But her husband shot me a glance, and I was silenced. Dumbfounded.

I abhor the burka, and the niqab. I hate what it does to women. I am appalled that women are separated from the world in this way. And I am furious that some women will continue to choose to wear it. But then, throughout history, feeble women who are afraid of modernity, have always been complicit in their own oppression.

The burka, with its tiny window of mesh over the eyes, and the niqab, with its letter-slit opening, is a tool of patriarchy used to subjugate women. This shroud of cloth thrown over women defies freedom. It is a symbol of control. Wearing it signifies an acceptance of segregation of the sexes. The cultures which demand such segregation are societies in which men are considered the natural superiors to women.

The fact that western, democratic governments allow this garb to be worn in secular societies is evidence that ‘gender equality’ and the ‘liberation of women’ are still just vague aspirations, mouthed with weak intent. Unless of course you’re French.

In an historic address on Monday the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, called for an outright ban on this hideous instrument of control. “The burka is not a sign of religion” he said, “It is a sign of enslavement. It is a sign of subservience”.

His rally cry has been brewing for years, as the French parliament has watched with alarm the growing number of burkas and niqab’s appearing in French cities. The Urban Affairs Minister, Fadela Amara, who is also a passionate advocate for Muslim women’s rights, says the ugly shroud is akin to putting a woman in a “tomb”. She’s called on France to “stop burkas from spreading”.

It’s a tough call, given there are around 5 million Muslims in France. The 2004 ban on wearing hijabs at school, or in public offices, was met with furious protests around the country. A ban on the burka has the potential to ignite riots. Sarkozy knows that. And yet he is still determined to push ahead. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd must do the same.

The burka is not yet common here, but it’s only a matter of time. Australia is positioned in a region being transformed by the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. Radical Islam’s plan for domination is utterly incompatible with women’s equality. Put bluntly, Islamic fundamentalists view Australia, and all western democracies, as immoral and decadent - because the women are free.

Australia must not allow that radical and overt tool of fundamentalism, the burka, to be worn here. It defies our cherished values of equality and freedom.

Wearing the burka - or niqab -in Australia is an aggressive way of saying 'I will not integrate into your society, and I care nothing for the cultural mores and social traditions of this country'. Instead, the woman wearing it is demonstrating that she would rather submit to gender apartheid, than embrace the social norms of this place. The burka is an arrogant display of disrespect to Australia and the Australian way of life.

Covering women like this, and rendering them sexless and shapeless, is apparently to stop men looking at them. It is to ensure the sexual urges of men are not stirred or tempted. It is also a fierce display of proving a man’s power over his woman, and ownership of her.

The Koran calls on both men and women to display modesty. Why then don’t men wear burqas? Women too are sexual beings, who may also have their urges stirred and tempted by the sight of a man. But of course that doesn’t register in societies that view females only as sexual objects and temptresses.

By covering herself in a burka, a woman is relinquishing the right to express herself as a female. She is agreeing to suppress her own sexuality.

For a woman to argue she feels more comfortable hidden beneath her burka, away from the gaze of men, is unacceptable in modern society. Such a claim represents total submission to sexual subordination. That sort of thing might have been understandable - perhaps even forgivable - when women were uneducated and utterly dependent on men for food, shelter and protection. But women must no longer agree to such secondary status. And most certainly, not when they are in Australia.

There is no place here for the burka. Australians must rally to have the burka banned.

This Australian woman has balls, she is an employee of the Australian Labor party's information and publicity bureau the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ABC.

I fear she will either be polishing Kevin 07's shoes or will be added to Kevin 07's rapidly growing "stimulus" generated unemployment line.

Burka-Wearing Prompts The Return Of In Rickets In Birmingham

NSS

A new health awareness campaign has been launched among Muslim women by health officials in the Midlands after a rise in the number of cases of rickets.

It is thought that pregnant women who regularly wear a burka are depriving themselves of exposure to sunlight, which results in Vitamin D deficiency.

Sixty-five children in Birmingham have needed hospital treatment in the past three years for rickets, a disease which was thought to have died out in Victorian times. And health bosses fear this may be the tip of the iceberg with more cases of the illness, which affects bone development, not being formally diagnosed. Now they have invested £150,000 to fight the rise of rickets among infants in inner city Birmingham.

The wearing of burkas by Muslim women is thought to have contributed to its recent resurgence. A spokesman for the Heart of Birmingham Primary Care Trust, which is heading the campaign, said: “Anecdotal evidence suggests that mothers and babies from some minority ethnic communities may be more affected. This is because women traditionally do not expose their skin to sunlight. However, Vitamin D deficiency can also be due to confinement in the home, diet, mal-absorption syndromes and liver or kidney disease. Deficiency is easily counteracted with Vitamin D supplements.

Dr Jacky Chambers, director of public health at Heart of Birmingham primary care trust, added: “Women who cover up for cultural reasons may be at higher risk of Vitamin D deficiency. In addition to taking Vitamin D supplements, we are urging mothers to help themselves to get some sunlight. They should make sure they are exposed to the sun, without burning, for a short time each day.”
