September 2006 Thought for the Week:
"The qualities which
Christ manifested in His life were a sense of freedom, balance, courage, initiative,
simplicity. These qualities were displayed in a man unique in the history of human
Realistic Christianity is not possible unless the dangerous
myth of "Judaeo-Christianity" is rejected. Writing in "The Big
Idea," (C.H.) Douglas said: 'It is necessary to face up to the fact of institutionalised
which is simply Liberal Judaism. I repeat my belief,
not only that Christianity has not failed because it has not been tried, but that
it has not been tried mainly because Judaeo-Christianity has taken care that it
should not be tried.'
The Christian concept of unity through diversity
is reflected in the Doctrine of the Trinity
(neither confounding the Persons
nor dividing the Substance). Christ's revelation paved the way to free the individual
from the domination of the group or the system
(and) Douglas stressed that
a genuinely Christian society is one in which power is effectively in the hands
of the individual members of that society, who are then in a position to make
free choices, accepting of course, personal responsibility for the choices made."

MUSLIM MINDSET IN AUSTRALIA?
When Eric Butler
wrote the above book over twenty five years ago, adherents to the Muslim religion
in Western countries were not as many as today, and we had not experienced the
consequences of the "race-hate" legislation. But thanks to the imposition of multiculturalism,
the 'race-religion-hate' legislation and the dismantling of our national sovereignty
through UN conventions, we are in great danger of losing our freedom to publicly
discuss matters of concern to us. We must come to grips with what has happened
to our freedoms and culture - and come out fighting!
www.saltshakers.org.au had this to say:
The Muslim mindset, exposed in
the Victorian Court of Appeal puts freedom of speech and the Australian culture
under threat: "It is impossible to vilify Islam without also vilifying Muslims,
because the two are indistinguishable. "If one vilifies Islam, one is by necessary
consequence vilifying people who hold that religious belief," Brind Woinarski,
QC, told the court.
If that claim, made in the Victorian Court of Appeal yesterday
by the Barrister for the Islamic Council of Victoria, was found to be true it
would fundamentally change the freedom we have to speak about any religion in
Justice Geoffrey Nettle asked Mr Woinarski: "There must be, intellectually,
a distinction between the ideas and those who hold them?"
the underlying assumption of Islamic Council:
"We don't agree with that,"
Mr Woinarski said. "But in this case it's an irrelevant distinction, because Muslims
and Islam were mishmashed up together." Despite so-called 'exceptions', under
this assumption, any comedian, actor, journalist, and certainly any religious
commentator, would be severely restricted to only saying nice things about any
religion or face possible prosecution under Victorias Religious Tolerance Act.
Any religious debate, no matter where it took place, could be found to contravene
this Act simply because one person could claim they were vilified by criticism
of their religion - despite the word vilify not even appearing in the Victorian
This was clearly the underlying assumption of the Islamic Council
when they instigated this case against Pastors Nalliah and Scot:
first was the encouragement of three individuals to go to a seminar (conducted
by these Christian pastors) to specifically lodge a claim that they were vilified
by their (the Pastors') critique of Islam through to today.
Such an assumption
is totally incomprehensible to a Western culture where free speech is a vital
component of a democracy.
Clearly a wake
up call to all Australians:
The fact that the barrister for the Islamic
Council could make such a claim should be a wake up call to all Australians as
to how easily our freedom of speech could be removed by stealth
IN THE DOCK - AT THE COURT OF APPEALS:
Barney Zwartz of The
Age, Melbourne 23/8/06 reported:
"Christians who were found to have vilified
Muslims should not be banned from making statements that would be lawful by anybody
else, two Court of Appeal judges suggested yesterday.
Discussing orders made
against Christian pastors Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scot, Justice David Ashley
said a judge could not restrain conduct that was lawful, and Justice Geoffrey
Nettle questioned whether too much was expected of Pastor Scot.
Victorian and Civil Administrative Tribunal ruled last year that the pastors and
Catch the Fire Ministries vilified Muslims in a seminar, newsletter and article
in 2002. They have appealed against the ruling and the remedy orders made by Judge
Debbie Mortimer, SC, for the
Islamic Council of Victoria, said the Muslim side had sought a public apology
and undertakings not to repeat the vilification, but the pastors had refused and
said they did not recognise the findings or even the law on which they were based
(the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act).
is now 'not a defence':
She said the tribunal gave the pastors another
chance before ordering them to apologise in newspaper advertisements and granting
the injunctions forbidding them from repeating the statements anywhere in Australia.
She said the ban applied only to the two pastors.
Justice Geoffrey Nettle
said: "Surely that can't justify restraining them from saying something that said
by anyone else would be legal? In the case of the newsletter, for example, Pastor
Nalliah says many churches have closed down. What's wrong with saying that?"
Mortimer replied: "The tribunal has found there is something wrong with saying
it. Truth is not a defence, it's irrelevant to contravention of the act."
Ashley said so many of the statements were entirely innocuous and asked how the
pastors could legitimately be restrained from making them. Ms Mortimer replied:
"Because the tribunal found that when they made them they made them in a way that
contravened the act."
She said the comments had to be seen in the overall
context. Justice Nettle said that if she was right that only some comments from
the seminar were banned, "a layman whose first language is not English (Pastor
Scot, from Pakistan) is supposed to go through 140 pages of judgement and discern
from that things he may not say on pain of contempt". Running seminars on Islam
is Pastor Scot's occupation.
constitutional validity of the Act:
Ms Mortimer said he would have the
same obligation under the vilification act, with no guidance. "There is a lot
more guidance in this kind of order than the act provides."
Macaulay, barrister for the pastors, claimed that Judge Higgins made errors of
law and that his orders were too wide, and questioned the constitutional validity
of the act. Solicitor-General Pamela Tate said the case did not come under the
implied constitutional right to free speech because that right applied only to
political and governmental matters. Justices Nettle, Ashley and Marcia Neave reserved
MATTER OF LAWFUL AND CULTURAL CONCERN
Nick Maine of >firstname.lastname@example.org< has been following up the matter of welfare
payments to some of these people coming to Australia as 'refugees':
been following up the payments made to polygamists who have been allowed into
this country. Maybe someone could enlighten me as to why these people have been
brought here? During my enquiries with politicians and Centrelink I am told that
although these people cannot marry again here, as that is then bigamy, they are
however permitted to bring in all their existing wives and even accumulate more
women and live in a de facto relationship and then claim further pensions.
Mr Nick Maine, 5/40
Duet Drive, Mermaid Waters, Qld. 4218 16 August, 2006
Dear Mr. Maine,
refer to your e-mail dated 22 May 2006 in which you raised further concerns about
As you are aware, under Australian law, a person cannot
be legally married to multiple partners. However, there may be people of many
backgrounds in Australia who may be involved in more than one marriage-like relationship.
I am advised that if Centrelink assesses a customer as being involved in a
marriage-like relationship, each person is paid the relevant income tested payment
at the partnered rate. This ensures that people in more than one marriage-like
relationship do not get a financial benefit above what is available to other customers.
Centrelink only makes payments to people who are entitled according to legislation
and they use a variety of review activities directed towards the prevention, detection
and deterrence of incorrect payments and fraud. The Government is also considering
whether additional action is necessary.
I hope this information is of assistance
to you. Thank you for bringing your views to the attention of the Government,

read the following email report from Germany, take careful note of what is really
happening. Native Germans are losing their commercial properties and homes and
rootless aliens are taking over. In this case it is the international money lenders,
such as George Soros.
Email warning from
August 23, 2006
"If you owe money on your home, beware!
For the past three or four years it has been the policy of German banks to lend
money for private homes but not to lend money to locals for commercial properties.
This policy has not only forced many local commercial property owners into
receivership, but also allowed foreign investors who could borrow money outside
Germany, to come in and snap up German commercial properties at a tenth of their
The US investor George Soros has spent at least 200 billion
buying up German real estate.
Last night on
NDR (Nord Deutsche Rundfunk TV) on a programme called Frontal they highlighted
a new dangerous trend coming from the banks.
Foreign Investment companies
are buying up private debts from local banks, then instead of taking the interest
payments, or honoring the terms of the loans, they are foreclosing and demanding
the full sum of moneys owed.
If the Person cannot pay the debt they owe immediately,
(they don't even allow time for the person to borrow from another bank) they are
treated as defaulters and their homes or property are forcefully auctioned off.
Frontal showed a few examples, one
man who had his family home auctioned off from under him and was forced to move
out, another man had bought a large hall that he had rented out to an ALDI Market.
Even though the rent ALDI was paying to him was much higher than his interest
repayments to the bank, the Investment Firm took over his property and they now
collect the rent from ALDI.
These US/UK Investment
firms have names like TEXAS or in the above cases HUDSON. How German banking laws
allow the banks to sell off private debts was not explained in this programme,
but it looks like the German banks (most foreign owned) use loopholes to transfer
debts and although HUDSON has huge modern offices in Frankfurt they refused to
be interviewed on camera.

WAR AGAINST OUR GUNS
by John Steele:
La Pierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association of America
has published an enormously important book entitled "The Global War on Your Guns:
Inside the UN Plan to Destroy the Bill of Rights," (Nelson Current, Nashville,
The UN held its global gun ban summit on the Fourth of July 2006 in
New York. The idea is simple.
The UN conferences want all private fire arms
banned. Weapons held by "rogue military forces" in the Third World and "genocidal
governments" are fine by them. (p.x)
Howard's Gun Confiscation Architect:
Individuals, you see, don't have a right to use a firearm for self-defence,
even if they face the prospects of rape and/or murder (p.2) This is according
to La Pierre, the view of billionaire George Soros' protégé Rebecca Peters who
runs the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) which co-ordinates
private gun banning across the world. (p.1)
La Pierre notes, Peters was "The "proclaimed architect of the 1996-97 long gun
confiscation in Australia." (p.5) This was the world's biggest forfeiture scheme.
The guns grabbed were, according to Peters, "weapons of war" and "battlefield

will the UN ban private gun ownership? Primarily it will be done as it has been
done with other issues such as multiculturalism and the promotion of homosexuality
- through international treaties. The Ottawa Treaty (1997) banning land minds
is the model.
The Fabian strategy is to - on the surface - control illicit
small arms. To do that requires eliminating legal ownership because legally owned
guns can be stolen.
The United Nations Firearms Protocol will allow signing
nations under external affairs powers to ban private firearms ownership.
Pieree goes on to detail in, with full references, the history of the UN's own
human rights abuses and corruption, especially by UN "peacekeepers".

Sexual abuse of children has been common. (p.111) The UN
"facilitated the genocide against the disarmed people of Rwanda" (p.127); "The
UN is complicit in genocide, and the international gun haters are complicit in
Early in his book La Pierre quotes a passage from Peters where
she responds to the question: "Why do you place such unquestioning trust in governments
and the United Nations, when you clearly do not trust individuals for the best
way to protect themselves and their families?"
Peters said: "It's called civilization.
Individuals come together. They form societies. They form governments
confidence that people coming together into countries are going to operate better
than a whole lot of individuals making their own rules, taking the law into their
own hands." (p.4)
It is an instructive passage
and an entire essay could be written deconstructing its craziness. If individuals
cannot be trusted then why would collective organisations that they create be
trusted? Peters' "confidence" is contrary to historical reality and the empirical
evidence presented by La Pierre.
Further, individuals exercising a right to
self-defence are, and should be, acting within the law. The law should reflect
this. After all, if individuals don't have such a right why should they have the
even more dangerous right - the right to vote?

In the build-up to the next election it is time for
the Australian gun lobby to put pressure upon gun-banner John Howard as never
before. After all, the global war against our guns has already been declared.
AMONG THE BARBARIANS
Paul Sheehan in "Among the Barbarians"
examined the adverse impact the ethnic lobby has had on Australian immigration
policy. In his latest book, "Girls Like You" (Macmillan, Sydney 2006) gives us
a glimpse of the way Australia's legal system allows rapists to often walk free
because of the corruption of lawyers and the legal system.
book focuses upon the trial of the three K brothers, Pakistani-born Australian
rapists of teenage Anglo-Australian girls. Another book should be written about
the Sydney Middle-Eastern gang rapes of Anglo-Australian girls, but their story
- like the story of the French girls raped by the same type of criminals - may
not be told. Anti-White racist crimes are freely permitted by the Establishment
to disappear down the plughole of history, and Sheehan's book is the exception
that proves the rule.
The book shows how the
legal system, now biased against victims, can be manipulated to essentially crush
vulnerable rape victims. Procedural tricks and stunts delay trials. Offenders
lie through their teeth. Lawyers bully victims, rather than merely test evidence,
in a court-sanctioned attempt to break witnesses who are suffering trauma. If
ever there was a feminist case for the corruption of lawyers and the legal system
- this is it.
In an insightful review of this
book Janet Albrechtsen put her finger on the key issue when she said: "the chief
villains in all of this are the lawyers. They have grown to believe they, not
society own the legal system. They know better how justice should be meted out,
invoking jargon, mystique and experience to defend their proprietorship
protect their ownership, their belief systems and their careers against society's
legitimate demand that the law serve the interests of society, not a small cabal
of lawyers. They have elevated the protection of the interests of a minority -
accused people - into a form of oppression of the majority: society at large."
(The Australian 26/7/06 p.12) Lawyers have
helped to create a legal system which treats criminals as victims; "Burdened by
middle-class guilt, they refuse to believe that crime is caused by criminals."
Beyond this though, the legal fraternity champions
the right of illegal alien invaders 'refugees' and much free (pro bono)
work goes to helping these people. Meanwhile little help goes to battling Aussies
facing legal problems: legal aid is essentially for the disadvantaged politically
A balance of checks:
There needs to be a book done exposing in full detail the evils of our
present system of "rule by lawyers", an undemocratic cabal of elites that have
a rule parallel to parliament. Why is it, for example, that the High Court of
Australia has the power to interpret the Constitution? Who says they should have
this power which effectively gives them a greater power than parliament?
"rule of lawyers" issue is one which needs to be addressed and resolved because
it has led to abuses such as those involved in the Middle-Eastern gang rapes.
As a footnote to this article:
Weekend Australian 29-30/7/06 p.3 reports that Middle Eastern gang rapist
Bilal Skaf received a maximum prison term of 38 years (minimum 32 years) for the
2000 gang sex attacks. Mohammed Skaf received a maximum of 15 years gaol with
a minimum of 7½ years.
The brothers were initially convicted in 2002, but
their conviction was overturned on appeal when it was found that two jurors had
conducted their own investigation.
It was only the determination of the teenaged
victim that ultimately allowed the conviction. Otherwise the young Anglo girls
would be part of the untold history of rapes, often by ethnic men but also by
our own kind, that have not been punished by law.
ADAMS' HATRED OF ERIC BUTLER
It is truly amazing how much space Phillip Adams has devoted to
vilifying Eric Butler over the years. Eric was a Nazi, racist, and a traitor to
his country - according to Phillip Adams. Adams' article in The Weekend Australian
5-6/8/06, p.42. continues this rave.
Eric, according to Adams had a "squalid
toxic" life and "was a traitor to his country, to his professed Christian faith
and to human decency". Mr. Adams regards it as "calamitous that he was ever born."
Indeed for "more than 60 years this most repulsive creature spread his poison",
his "pornographic politics".
Even people who have
shared a League of Rights lectern are condemned.
needed is a reality check:
But let us take a reality check. According
to The Australian (5-6/8/06, p.4) radical Islamists are set to target Australia
to die fighting Israel and countries supporting it, such as Australia. Australian-Indonesian
businessmen are allegedly funding the plot "to attack Jewish interests". It is
said that 217 jihadis, including suicide bombers have been sent to countries supporting
Now where is Adams' sense of proportion:
that is clearly a greater threat than any traditional conservative social credit
critic, surely. But to comment on this sort of reality would start to challenge
his own comfortable multiculturalism.
And by the way - why doesn't Adams express
any guilt for accepting Leftism, when communism in its forms has led to the death
of over 100 million people? The smear-by-association game is never played fairly.
Adam's over-reaction - even Jewish critics
of Eric Butler have not been so verbally angry - cannot be explained rationally.
It is not rational.
There are others who supported apartheid in South Africa,
promoted the "Protocols" and accepted racial realism. There are many Left wing
and Islamic critics of the Jews that are far harsher than ever Eric was. Why the
Could it be the manifestation of an enormous inferiority
complex, the realisation, if only at an unconscious level, that Adams is not in
the league of Eric Dudley Butler?

Israel Wants to Sue U.N. for Damages Caused by Hezbollah, 18th August 2006:
"Talk about gall. I just got done eating my supper, and it feels like
it wants to come up. I'm speechless on this one!!! Maybe this is why no country
will ever make peace with Israel because of this road to Jerusalem mentality:
Deuteronomy 20:10-18 states:
"When you draw near a city to fight against it,
offer terms of peace to it. And if its answer to you is peace and it opens to
you, then all the people who are found in it shall do forced labour for you and
shall serve you. But if it makes no peace with you . . . you shall put all its
males to the sword, but the women and the little ones, the cattle, and everything
else in the city, all its spoil, you shall take as booty for yourselves; and you
shall enjoy the spoil of your enemies."
wants U.N. reparations for Israel!
"Pro-Israel advocates launched a petition
calling on the United Nations to provide reparations to Israel for damage caused
by Hezbollah. The petition says the "U.N. Security Council failed to discharge
its obligation. It allowed Hezbollah to entrench itself in southern Lebanon and
to spread its terror to the people of Lebanon."
As of the latest report, the
petition had garnered more than 34,000 signatures. >http://jta.org/page_view_breaking_story.asp?intid=4255<
David Flint's Opinion Column:
"Those who say our Constitution is creaking

for centralism, and in recent years has been extended to a vastly increased political

and the judges kept more to that intention, many if not most of the problems of
overlap, of centralisation and of financial irresponsibility by the States would
have been avoided.
In particular, if the external affairs and spending powers
of the federal government and parliament had been limited to the list of powers
which the people agreed the federal parliament may legislate on, the States would

even more powers to the Commonwealth, or in a vast increase in the power of the
judges to govern us, or in the grafting of some unspecified republic on to our
Constitution, at least unless and until the people approve of any or all of these.
In the meantime, the consequences of the present unsatisfactory situation
will be considerably mitigated by sensible working relationships between Canberra
and the State capitals, such as those that seem to have been reached recently.

of our one indissoluble federal Commonwealth under the Crown; principles to which
the Australian people have given their consent and which they have so recently
