Keep their hate out of our country

Andrew Bolt – Herald Sun – Sept 17, 2012

The problem isn’t us. It isn’t even some YouTube clip posted by a filmmaker no one has heard of.

No, the problem is them.

Islamists. Extremists desperate to take offence. Bigots who use violence to frighten us into giving up our free speech.

I mean not just the people setting the Middle East ablaze, but the hundreds of Muslims who in Sydney on Saturday staged a violent riot, allegedly over a video that insults Islam. Enough.

May I ask: who let in these people who now demand the right to say who may speak and who must tremble?

Who let in those who bashed police, flew the black flag of jihad and Hamas, and had even children hold up signs exhorting, “Behead all those who insult the Prophet”?

Who welcomed these people who chanted praise of Osama bin Laden, whose terrorists killed Australians in Bali, New York and Washington

Reality check. This protest was not caused by a YouTube clip.

If this comes from opening our doors, then shut them. If this comes from multiculturalism, then scrap it.

If this is the fruit of our tolerance, let’s try intolerance.

Let’s debate whether we must restrict Muslim immigration until we better integrate those here already.

But already we hear the same old voices telling us the fault for the riot lies with the rest of us for being racist.

Hear them tell us to understand the anger, and do more to appease it.

They warn us, just for starters, to remove from the internet not the scores of propaganda videos of jihadists beheading Jews, Christians and journalists but one that merely makes Mohammed seem silly.

Reality check. This protest was not caused by a YouTube clip.

If Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and atheists were to attack police and demand beheadings every time we found something horrible on the internet, this country would be a war zone.

No, it’s the wanting to take offence – and to threaten, attack and censor – that is the feature of these latest riots from Tunis to Sydney.

Take the most violent of those alleged “protests” – the attack on September 11 on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed US ambassador Chris Stevens and three staff.

That, too, was sold in the media as rioting over an anti-Islamic film made in the US by an Israeli Jew.

In fact, that “film” was made by a Coptic Christian originally from Egypt, and so far exists only as a YouTube clip of cartoonish quality.

Moreover, the Libyan “protest” has been claimed by al-Qaida as revenge for the killing of the group’s deputy leader, with an al-Qaida-linked militia attacking the consulate with machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars. The video was just an excuse.

The violent demonstrations at the US embassy in Cairo that same day may seem more easily portrayed as a “protest”.

Yet the US Government had no involvement with the video, and even disowned it.

Moreover, the radical Muslim Brotherhood that now forms Egypt’s Government issued tweets and statements whipping up anger against the video and the US, and praising in Arabic the protests.

Since then, other extremists have murdered US soldiers in Afghanistan, burned a German embassy in Khartoum, stormed a US embassy compound in Yemen and torched a KFC outlet in Lebanon.

The targets seem irrelevant, and the YouTube video a pretext.

Some Sydney protesters confessed they hadn’t seen it. So, no. These protests aren’t an understandable reaction to Americans or Jews giving offence.

They are the work of Muslim extremists determined to take it, and to jump at any chance to make us submit to their dictates.

The video is irrelevant. This violence is all.

    I agree completely with all the comments made here. Good on you Andrew Bolt and everyone else here for being so forthright.

    It seems to be that all politicians are seen to be bending over backwards to accommodate these people… and we are going to lose our heritage if it continues unabated.

    Just a thought here. Im a christian… and while i was thinking and praying about this issue the thought came to me. In the old testament ( which is just as relevant today ) whenever outsiders wanted to join the Israelite nation when they were trekking into the Promised Land ( and there were a few of them ) the Lord stipulated that these outsiders, in order to be accepted amongst His people, had to be circumsized and they had to take on EVERY aspect of the life of worship that was laid down for the nation. EVERY aspect. NO bringing in their idols or their practises. I dont read anywhere else where this has changed at all.

    This country was discovered by christians, who called it the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit… and it has been since, even though our early history had a lot of heartache and went through turbulent times.

    Now ?? our christian heritage, and our blessings are being watered down and eventually thrown out as these people flood our borders with their beliefs. I cant believe that the press hasnt been more aggressive against what has happened. Does the press represent the majority of Australians now? i pray it doesnt because we are in deep trouble if it does. The church needs to rise up and be more assertive with this. No more… “political correctness”….a term from the pit of hell in my book.

    I agree with Erik. AUSTRALIA SHOULD NOT TAKE THIS SITTING DOWN. THEY SHOULD GET INTO THE REALITY OF THIS AND DO SOMETHING BEFORE THIS ESCALATES. RESTRICT MUSLIM IMMIGRATION AND PASS A BILL OR ENFOCE A LAW OR SOMETHING. THIS IS DISTURBING THE PEACE OF AUSTRALIA. THEY JUST WANT TO BE OUT THERE SEEN AND HEARD BUT SHOWING THEIR HATE AND RAGE.WE APPLAUDE THE POLICE WHO DID NOT COWER DOWN BUT ENFORCED THE LAW OF JUSTICE UPON THEM. THE PROTESTERS MUST HAVE THOUGHT THE POLICE HERE ARE MEEK AND WEAK BUT POLICE SHOULD BE TOUGHER AND INTOLERANT OF SUCH BEHAVIOURS. GEORGIE

    A few years ago a friend shared this little story with me. Whilst shopping in Shepparton she was surprised to find so many ladies wearing a burka, one of them turned to her and said “don’t worry love you’ll be wearing one of these in a few years” apparently said with great conviction and confidence. Do I need to say more? Seems to me its no secret to the Islamic people what they intend on doing, no matter how long it takes I guess now we’re becoming aware of it! We do well to support Mr Andrew Bolte’s statement, he is doing his share to wake us up from our obvious “easy going nature” before its too late! Let’s not allow their beliefs or culture to determine how we should live or what is the true definition of peace. Lilian

    For once someone in the media is telling it as it is and there should be more of this in the Australian media, as they have to exercise a duty of care to let the population know the truth. Didn’t our parents/soldiers go to war to ensure that we have freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of movement.
    Australia is a peaceful country and people leave their country to come here to live in peace and harmony. All migrants are guests in this country and that included these people. I wonder how many of these people are receiving government benefits and how much of this is being used to fund these criminal activities. Remember the Cronulla riots a few years ago. We, Australians need to rise up together to fight to keep our democracy and our Christian heritage. This has to be nipped in the bud in Australia. Keep Australia Australian. We Australians must unite and stand up against all the injustice that we are going through and we must stop it from getting out of hand as our rights are being taken from us one at a time. Is this a case of being politically correct or reverse discrimination in the name of tolerance? Police should uphold the law and not show restraint when it comes to those lawbreakers. We should deport those Muslims who are law beakers.
    What is our Prime minister doing about this or is it a case of paying lip service to the populous and appeasing them. This is just a foretaste of what is to come if we do not nip this in the bud right now. They are trying to take over our country by stealth. We must close our borders now and get rid of those extremists. This is absolute reality as history has shown that they never give up. These extremists will die for their cause and are taught this from childhood. We have seen how they have used children in this demonstration. The war in several countries have shown that Islamic extremists know no peace and live contrary to their claim that Islam is a peaceful religion. Rise up Australia and let our voices be heard that we will not tolerate this as we want Australia to remain a peaceful country for one and all. Concerned Citizen
