It's un-Australian ... rally condemns push to ban burqa
September 20, 2010
Islamic values are superior to ''flawed'' Western secular values and non-Muslims are in no position to lecture Muslims about the oppression of women, a speaker said yesterday at a Sydney rally against proposals to ban the burqa.
Potential Assassin ? seen holding a picture of Christianity’s Virgin Mary,the Mother of Jesus Christ,so as to give her and her fellow cult members their own appalling Neanderthal beliefs some credibility, “Burqa Ban is Un Australian” No,Islam is un Australian, Muslims are un Australian, Muslims tell us so at every opportunity available to them.
"The criminal dregs of white society colonised this country, (Australia) and now, they only
take the select choice of other societies, and the descendants of these criminal
dregs tell us that they are better than us. And because we are not elitists, we
tolerate them.(Muslims TOLERATE Australians) Yet they want us to assimilate, perhaps they will only become
satisfied when we each die our hair red, wear blue/green contact lenses, and
operate a fish and chips shop, otherwise, we would not be truly assimilating,
"As for those whose souls the angels took while still they were wronging
themselves - the angels said, "in what were you engaged?" They said, "We were weak
in the land." They said: "was not Allah's earth spacious, so that you might have
emigrated in it?" So for those, their abode is hell, and it is a bad destination."

''Despite the intense negative propaganda against Islam and in particular the lies about its treatment of women, the number of Western women embracing Islam continues to rise at a rapid rate,'' said Fautmeh Ardati, a member of the Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir. ''By turning their backs on this flawed way of life, it is testament of the superiority of Islamic values over Western values.''
So what does the Proscribed Terrorist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir have to say about Australia and Western Democracy
Women did not wear Islamic dress out of freedom of choice, Ms Ardati told the Lakemba rally.
''Because to use freedom of choice as a justification, then we are also accepting of women who undress out of this same freedom of choice, and we can never do this as Muslim women. We dress like this because it is the command of Allah, not any man.''
Women had two options, she said. ''The Western secular way of life, which robs a woman of her dignity, honour and respect, where she is considered little more than a commodity to be bought and sold, or the option of Islam, where a woman's dignity, respect and honour are priceless.''
Women's rights activist jailed in Iran for 'warring against God' -
September 20, 2010 1:19AM
IRAN sentenced a women's rights activist to six years in jail on charges including "warring against God," an offence that can carry the death penalty, her lawyer said today.
Journalist Shiva Nazar-Ahari, 26, was the latest among the dozens of activists to receive a stiff jail sentence after being picked up amid the mass protests that followed hard-line President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad's controversial re-election in June last year.
At least 10 of those arrested were given death sentences.
Ms Nazar-Ahari "has been sentenced to three and a half years in jail for Moharebeh [warring against God], two years for conspiracy to commit a crime and six months for propaganda against the regime," her
lawyer Mohammad Sharif said.
The court ordered her to serve the jail term in the town of Izeh, 800 kilometres from her home city of Tehran, Sharif said, adding that he would lodge an appeal, the moderate Arman newspaper reported.
Ms Nazar-Ahari was first granted bail three months after her initial arrest amid international concern about the possible death sentence but was re-arrested last December while on her way to the Shiite shrine city
of Qom for the funeral of dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri.
The capital charge was reportedly leveled against her over suspicions she had ties with the regime's most hated foe - the exiled opposition People's Mujahedeen of Iran (PMOI) - an accusation she strongly denied.

Ms Ardati was one of five speakers at the rally, held at Parry Park, in reaction to a recent unsuccessful attempt by the NSW MP Fred Nile to introduce a bill banning the burqa.
The Premier, Kristina Keneally's recent statement re-affirming the right of Muslim women to wear the burqa was welcomed but Ms Ardati said the support of key politicians did not mean Muslims could ''relax''.
''Even if this bill is not passed in NSW now, who knows what will happen in one week, one month or one year?'' Ms Ardati said.
There were about 2000 people at the rally, with men and women segregated by a row of plastic markers. Male speakers spoke to the crowd from a podium at the front. The two female speakers spoke from the women's section, meaning most of the men had their backs turned to them.
Sheikh Shady al-Suleiman said Muslims loved Australia but rejected interference in the practice of their religion. ''Keep away from our affairs,'' he said.
Umm Jamaalud-Din said Mr Nile's ''un-Australian'' bill had ''open[ed] the floor to racist elements that exist within Australian society'' who would now feel they could vilify, abuse and possibly assault Muslim women.
''I feel empowered by the knowledge that I am in control of displaying my beauty to whom I choose,'' she said.
''I can move freely throughout society without being subjected to the eyes of every Tom, Dick and Harry and not be judged on face value but rather for who I am as a person.''
Earlier, organisers had told people not to speak to the media. One woman wearing a burqa said she would have to ask her husband before speaking to the Herald. When asked if she needed her husband's permission to speak, she said: ''We are allowed but we choose not to.''
"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"
