Sharia law – Why are you against Sharia law and the Muslim people?
A: Rise Up Australia Party is totally opposed to the introduction of Sharia law in Australia – it is incompatible with our democracy and in particular curtails the civil rights and freedoms of women. To be clear we love the Muslim people but oppose their texts (Quran) and Islamic doctrine and ideology. We stand robustly on the foundation of our Judeo-Christian heritage, which includes the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, the 1215 Magna Carta and the 1688 Bill of Rights. In addition, we specifically highlight our right to Freedom of Speech, and the right to a democratic and accountable government. Also, we acknowledge the inalienable human right of each individual to pursue prosperity, happiness and freedom within a peaceful, well-ordered and well-governed society. We also acknowledge freedom of religion, provided the religion is tolerant of other religions. Islam is one religion which opposes the right to assemble and worship other god’s and it vigorously fights to destroy or kill such people whom they describe as “infidels”.
Note: CTFM was taken to court when 3 Muslims were sent into a CTFM meeting to spy on the congregation. Under the clause of the religious vilification laws they sued the church. This cost the church $600,000, $1.2 million of pro bono work, and 5 years of court proceedings from 2002 – 2007. The case was quenched in the Supreme Court where Pastor Daniel was found not guilty and freedom of speech had a great victory. Nalliah believes that Australia’s Muslim population pose one of the greatest challenges to the country’s culture, claiming that the Islamic community are often the driving force in supporting multiculturalism in order to impose their own social values and legal standards within Western societies. The party recognises Islam as a grave threat to Freedom of Speech, especially based on the experiences of the party president and others who supported the 5 year court battle. He said: “One of the greatest pushes for multiculturalism comes from Muslim people. David Cameron is the perfect example of someone who has said ‘multiculturalism has failed’. There are Sharia courts starting all over the UK. If multiculturalism has been ineffective in Europe, why implement a failure in Australia?”
Islam is not violent, it’s just a few lone wolves?
A: You declare that Islam is a religion of peace (non violent); therefore I am assuming you would be of the same opinion as other Muslim leaders, that the recent terrorist attack in Sydney was the work of a single, unbalanced madman. And that similar terror attacks on western societies are played out by disturbed human beings who do not reflect the fundamental nature of true Islam. Comprehensive evidence however, gathered worldwide does not support this view. The Sydney Perpetrator Monis, was focused, cold and calculating and knew exactly what he was doing. His intention was to strike fear and terror into his hostages and also the Australian Public while the world looked on, and all in the name of Allah. He was supported by his co murdering de facto wife who was also well aware of what she was doing and why she was doing it. (1) Both of them supported ISIS and were advocating Islam as superior and for world domination through religion, Governmental control and culture.
If Islam is a religion of peace, why is it that currently worldwide, it is only Muslims that consistently engage in terrorist activities against other faiths, hold demonstrations calling for the beheading of those that insult their Prophet and execute violence and murder upon those that offend them? Also, where is the peace between the Sunni and the Shiite people? They passionately hate each other and Iran is even on the verge of civil war.
Recent history points to Islamic groups being responsible for much of the worlds Terror. Remember: 9-11, the Twin Towers in New York where 2,996 people were killed and property loss/damages exceeded $10 billion; the Bali bombings killing 202 and injured 209; the 2005 London underground train and bus suicide bombings; the vicious fatal attack on a British soldier in London last year; the Endeavour Hills stabbing in Melbourne, September last; (2) and last week 12 people are murdered in France as revenge over French satirical magazine cartoonists who ‘blasphemed’ the name of Islam and the Prophet. Incidentally they made fun of everyone including Christianity, the Pope and heads of State, but only Islam reverts to Terrorism, killing innocent people because they think it is their duty to execute Jihad on the infidel. The list goes on and on it’s almost endless. Were the Masterminds behind these attacks and the like all psychotic? I doubt it!! In September 2012 there was an Islamic demonstration (pictured left) in Sydney against Australians who expressed their views (free speech) on the practice of Mohammad taking child brides. Are the parents of this 5 year old boy also unbalanced, for giving him such a violent poster to hold? And what of the others that carried placards that day are they also psychotic? I don’t think so, I think they are fairly average thinking Muslims, in the minority maybe, because they are blatantly unashamed enough to get out there and portray the true thinking behind Islam. Sam, there is nothing peaceful about letting a small boy carry a very explicit poster which states, “Behead all those who insult the Prophet”. It is a basic liberty in Australian culture, to be able to speak out against what you believe is wrong. If Muslims don’t like that, don’t come to Australia, don’t live here and don’t try to change us, it is our right to stay AUSTRALIAN. Above – Sydney Riots September 2012 . Last November a young Melbourne, Turkish Woman sneaks out of Australia without her parent’s knowledge, to marry an Islamic State Jihadi playboy in Syria. “She is one of a string of (Muslim) Australians seduced by the Islamic state Death Cult”, says the Herald Sun newspaper on December 29th 2014. Is she wacky (well some might think so,) or just a young Muslim ideologist who is prepared to support her man in what she believes is for the defence of Allah?
2015 is only 12 days old and daily we hear of some kind of anarchy involving Muslims. We see Islam exercising hatred, violence, and fascism in various places. Terror attacks by Islamic Fundamentalists to further an ostensible Islamic religious or political cause are occurring globally. Terrorists have used such tactics as suicide bombings, spree killings, hijackings, kidnappings and beheadings.

Muslim statistics on Terrorism from WikiIslam, the online resource on Islam. Data was collected on 400 terrorists by this source, showing 90 percent came from caring, intact families; 63 percent had gone to college and were the best and brightest of their societies in many ways. They were engineers, architects, civil engineers, but mostly scientists. Surprisingly very few had any background in religion. Seventy three percent were married and the vast majority had children. Their most important characteristic is normalcy. Terrorist leaders actually tend to come from relatively privileged backgrounds. There was no link between poverty and support for militant groups. These conclusions are firmly supported by ‘empirical analysi’. Comparing the world’s Muslim population as a whole, most global jihadis are not illiterates raised in poor families. Sunni Muslims alone without the Shiites committed more than 70% of terrorist murders in 2011. The Religion Of Peace’s count was very conservative with 90 per cent of those on whom info had been collected described as sociable, with a number of friends. Our data thus tends to contradict commonly held stereotypes of terrorists being “mad”, psychopathic or evil. – Conclusion: fairly normal individuals within the movement of Islam, not psychopaths, commit the atrocities mentioned above.
Some of the above information comes from the 2011 National Counterterrorism Centre (NCTC) Report on Terrorism, and is based on information available as of March 12, 2012.
This paradigm that Islam has portrayed in recent years is not new. History tells us that where ever they have ascendancy they will exercise religious cleansing, oppression and disproportion.
Below is one of the many ethnic/religious cleansings that has taken place over the last one hundred years
The world turned its head while large-scale “religious cleansing” took place by Turkish Muslims. The Armenians of Turkey endured mass slaughter at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. The centuries of Turkish (Muslim) rule reduced Asia Minor, the epicentre of western civilization and Christendom, into a bloody Islamic cesspool which culminated in genocide by Turks against Armenian and Greek Christian populations. The Armenian Genocide, occurred when 2 million Armenians living in Turkey were eliminated from their historic homeland through forced deportation and massacres by the Turks.
As Turkish authorities forced them out of eastern Turkey, Armenians say they lost 1.5 million people in 1915-23, during and after World War I. Turkey said the death count was inflated and that the deaths were a result of civil unrest. To this day Turkey denies the Armenian genocide, but history cannot be hidden or rewritten, nor can the testimonies of those that endured yet survived the ordeal.
Armenia still survives today but with only a population of around 3,000,000

Below – Another example of Islamic philosophy – Not a madman – Again religious cleansing is the objective. TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — Iran’s new president has repeated ……..” insisting that a new series of attacks will destroy the Jewish state, and lashes out at Muslim countries and leaders that acknowledge Israel. The president then said: “And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism,” according to a quote published by IRNA. The remarks by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — reported by Islamic Republic News Agency — coincide with a month-long protest against Israel called “World without Zionism”. – Thursday,October 27, 2005 Posted: 0727 GMT (1527 HKT.

Why is it then that Islam, contrary to the cries, “we are a religion of peace” is actually a regime of Violence? Maybe this research by a Danish psychologist can add some light. I have reduced the study quite significantly for the purpose of this article.
Nicolai Sennels is a Danish psychologist and Author employed by the Copenhagen youth prison SÃ¸nderbro, He addresses, ‘Why Muslims are more violent and criminal than their Danish national counterparts’.
He says, …“the crime rate among Muslims in the West is catastrophically high”. Seven out of 10 inmates in Danish youth prisons have Muslim immigrant backgrounds. The question is of course….. Why are Muslims so much more criminal, violent and seemingly more non-empathetic than non-Muslims?
He says we have to acknowledge the psychological differences between Muslims and Westerners if we want to understand the unsuccessful integration of Muslims in the West and its increasingly problematic consequences.
In Copenhagen’s youth prison, the first seven or eight places on the top-10 list of criminals’ nationality are occupied by immigrants from Muslim countries. This list is published by the Danish state’s Bureau of Statistics. The statistics also show that crime rates among immigrants get worse, not better, in subsequent generations. . Second generation non-Western immigrants are five times more violent than Danes.
A psychological profile of the Muslim culture has become evident. – Honour vs. Insecurity.
In Western societies we see it as a sign of strength, and an honourable attitude if we are able to face criticism with a calm and clear attitude. Being able to take criticism and take it into account when relevant is seen as an important aspect of being a dignified and self-confident. And the ability to think or say, “That is your opinion about me/my values but I have differently views, is necessary in our critical, democratic and transparent culture.
Meeting criticism with hostility and threats, on the other hand, is seen as lack of self-control and is not honourable at all – at least not in Western culture.
As in the case of the Danish, Mohammed cartoons showed more clearly than anything else, the Muslim concept of honour lies on the other end of the scale. What we in the West would categorize as an insecure and childish response to criticism is seen by Muslims as a fair and honourable reaction to unjust insults. What other people think and say about Muslims means a lot to them. The combination of social acceptance of aggressive behaviour and an exceedingly fragile attitude to honour constitutes an explosive cocktail. The simple and natural demand for integration in our western societies is seen by many Muslims as an unwelcome criticism of their own culture, fuelling many resident Muslims’ to be at enmity towards their non-Islamic surroundings.
Victim mentality – ‘locus of control’. Locus of control is a psychological term that describes whether people experience their lives as controlled mainly by inner or by outer factors. In Western societies we are told that we ourselves are the main ones responsible for our lives. The way we think, act, handle our emotions, communicate, react, etc. determines whether we create harmonious and satisfying moments or not. The basic advice in our culture is to look at ourselves if we want to locate the causes of our personal problems. We are raised to think that talking about one’s problems can bring new and better solutions to one’s life (Inner locus of control).This makes sense to us.
Asking a Muslim to take a look at his own inner and outer reactions in order to find the reasons for his problems is simply not a relevant question for them. Muslim clients mainly see the sources for their suffering as outer factors; an unfair society and non-Islamic authorities are the general scapegoats. Westerners tend to ask themselves, “What did I do wrong?” when experiencing problems, where as Muslims tend to ask, “Who did this to me?” Muslim clients did not see it as their responsibility to integrate into our society —most do not see any reason for integrating, are not allowed to by their family and friends, or are simply not able to live up to Western standards even if they wanted to. The same was almost always the case concerning the crimes they had been charged with: It was the victim’s own fault – he or she had “provoked” or tempted them beyond their means. My Muslim clients thus felt “forced” to attack their victim by the victim, or by outer religious or cultural pressure and expectations.
Finally, there is a very important psychological trait that concerns a Muslims’ identity. While equality and tolerance are promoted as some of our basic values, there is a very strong discrimination between Muslims and non-Muslims among Muslims. Although not an expert in Islamic scriptures – I studied them to understand my Muslim clients – and have concluded that this discrimination is probably inspired by the Islamic scriptures, in which the term “infidel” (non-Muslim) appears 347 times. Most Muslims see themselves as Moroccans, Somalis and Pakistanis, etc. living in another country -. Almost all of them feel alienated towards westerners and in opposition to our society. This shocked me, because many of these clients were second or third generation immigrants in our country. This tendency unfortunately fits very well with research in France, Germany and Denmark.
It’s “us” and “them”, (Muslims and non-Muslims) which has very concrete consequences — to non-Muslims. Most Muslim inmates are charged with some kind of violence, robbery and/or attempted murder. Unless it happened in connection with rival Muslim gangs or was honour-related, the victims were always non-Muslims.
It has been proven that racist discrimination is learned, not inherent:
Brain waves connected with feelings of empathy are stronger when seeing suffering among people from one’s own ethnic group. The conclusion is therefore that we are less likely to feel the pain of people from other races. After having studied the Quran and having had more than a hundred Muslim clients, it is clear that the discrimination against non-Muslims that exists in Muslim communities lessens Muslims empathy with non-Muslims, and this makes it more psychologically easy for them to dislike and harm us.
Sennels includes this comment in his article
An important part of leading one’s army to victory is to demonize the enemy through propaganda; thereby diminishing empathy and making the soldiers hate the enemy.
I do not believe that terrorist attacks like the Lint Cafe Siege are carried out by infrequent, psychotic people who do not reflect the true image of Islam. As I have shown there is a distinct agenda behind True Islam, and Islamic Terrorism which has been around for centuries. Now that Islam has infiltrated into the western nations it has shown no regard for the laws and culture of its host countries, and has exercised the freedoms and liberties the host country has given them to turn on the host and insist that they change so as not to offend Islam. As Islam spreads and breeds to become the majority in the host country, they endeavour to take control by various means, subsequently inflicting violence, religious cleansing and oppression on its citizens. There is NO Peace for the westerner on this course – only if they submit by force, (Jihad)
So if the lust for dominance which brings violence and insurgence does not come from the Quaran, Where does it come from? Are the radical and militant Muslims just naturally violent, religious, egotistical people who believe, it’s their way or the highway? I mean where they born that way or did they learn it?
According to these 3 verses in the Quran those that reject the teachings of Allah and do not believe are merely the vilest of animals. ……………… Surah … 8:54: In the manner of the people of Firon and those before them; they rejected the communications of their Lord, therefore We destroyed them on account of their faults and We drowned Firon’s people, and they were all unjust.
8:55: Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe.
98:6: Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men.
(No matter in what context you put these verses above, the message would not change – It is loud and clear. ’Destroy those who do not believe because they are vile and inferior- therefore worthy of death.)
Below, I have text from the Quaran consisting of 14 cosecutive verses written I’m told, by the Prophet Mohammad.
.8:1: They ask you about the windfalls. Say: The windfalls are for Allah and the Apostle. So be careful of (your duty to) Allah and set aright matters of your difference, and obey Allah and His Apostle if you are believers
8:2; Those only are believers whose hearts become full of fear when Allah is mentioned, and when His communications are recited to them they increase them in faith, and in their Lord do they trust.
8:3: Those who keep up prayer and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them.
8:4: These are the believers in truth; they shall have from their Lord exalted grades and forgiveness and an honourable sustenance.
8:5: Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse;
8:6: They disputed with you about the truth after it had become clear, (and they went forth) as if they were being driven to death while they saw (it).
8:7: And when Allah promised you one of the two parties that it shall be yours and you loved that the one not armed should he yours and Allah desired to manifest the truth of what was true by His words and to cut off the root of the unbelievers
8:8: That He may manifest the truth of what was true and show the falsehood of what was false, though the guilty disliked.
8:9: When you sought aid from your Lord, so He answered you: I will assist you with a thousand of the angels following one another.
8:10: And Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.
8:11: When He caused calm to fall on you as a security from Him and sent down upon you water from the cloud that He might thereby purify you, and take away from you the uncleanness of the Shaitan, and that He might fortify your hearts and steady (your) footsteps thereby.
8:12: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
8:13: This is because they acted adversely to Allah and His Apostle; and whoever acts adversely to Allah and His Apostle — then surely Allah is severe in requiting (evil).
8:14: This — taste it, and (know) that for the unbelievers is the chastisement of fire.
Compare the Teachings of Mohammad, above with the Teachings of Jesus, below.
I have read chapters of the Quaran and I find that it is very hard to establish the structure of the text as it jumps from subject to subject making the passages Incoherent.
Mohammad talks of Violence and the script is disjointed, Jesus speaks of moving away from the teachings of men and teaches on love and repaying evil with good. The script is flowing and the theme does not change.
Matthew Chapter 5 – Jesus Teaching.
33 Again, ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34 but I say unto you, swear not at all; neither by the heaven, for it is the throne of God;
35 nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, for thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your speech be, Yea, yea; or Nay, nay: and whatsoever is more than these is of the evil one.
38 Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 but I say unto you, resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man would go to law with thee, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not away.
43 Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy:
44 but I say unto you, love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you;
45 that ye may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.
46 For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the Gentiles the same?
48 Ye therefore be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
In conclusion I would like to point out that there are some very nice peaceful Muslim, people whom I know and like. But these people do not represent true Islam; they do not agree with all the teachings of the Quaran; they do not support Sharia Law and they believe in giving their allegiance to Australia and in keeping Australia Australian. Unfortunately these are not the people that are driving Islam, in this country or any other.

On 23 September 2014 an 18-year-old man, Numan Haider, was shot and killed by police outside EndeavourHills police station. Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius said Haider had been asked to come to the police station to discuss behaviour “which had been causing some concern”. When the man arrived outside the station, he stabbed the two officers as they went to meet him. The two stabbed officers, one from Victoria Police and one from the Australian Federal Police, were working together as part of a joint operation on counter-terrorism between the AFP and Victoria Police. Haider was found to be carrying two knives and an Islamic State flag.
