March 2006 Thought for the Week:
"I hope my fellow Old Brentwoodian
Jack Straw does introduce legislation to make it a criminal offence subject to
a two-year jail sentence to question the Holocaust. That will bring everything
out into the open.
I shall claim the honour of being the first prosecuted by
repeating the words for which I was fined £13,300 in Munich, banned from
German territory and Second World War archives, namely: 'The gas chamber shown
to the tourists at Auschwitz is a fake built after the war by the Polish communists.
I assume a British court will permit us to call witnesses and evidence which the
German courts denied us."
(The Polish authorities have since admitted
that the structure in question was built in 1948...ed)

STRANGE DOUBLE STANDARD
by Brian Simpson
Media articles by leading journalists across the world seem to be making essentially
the same argument with respect to the "cartoon conflict": that the fundamental
value of free speech is at stake and that this right over-rides a right of someone,
not to be offended. It is strange logic that cartoons deliberately created to
be "in the face" of Islam (whatever merits of that) can be defended by the West
and yet a scholar such as David Irving, whose historical research questioned the
Holocaust, is now to serve three years in prison. Where are the liberals defending
David Irving's free speech right?
have said (Channel 10 TV news, 7/2/06) that cartoons about the Holocaust will
be published. (The Jerusalem Post recently published the cartoons). Iran's
largest selling newspaper Ham Shahri is having a contest for cartoons on the Holocaust.
The graphics editor of that paper said: "The Western papers printed these sacrilegious
cartoons on the pretext of freedom of expression, so let's see if they mean what
they say and also print these Holocaust cartoons." The answer is of course predictable
but who said radical Islamists were without humour? If this is done will liberals
defend the Islamists' free speech right? This is yet another murky and gruesome
debate provoked by our collapsing multicultural society. The right of free speech
has been threatened in recent times like never before.
The great British philosopher
John Stuart Mill wrote in On Liberty: "Strange it is that men should admit the
validity of the arguments for free discussion, but object to their being 'pushed
to an extreme'; not seeing that unless the reasons are good for an extreme case,
they are not good for any case."
a point of logic: if there is a right of freedom of speech regarding cartoons,
then David Irving also has the same right of freedom of speech. If Irving is to
be imprisoned, then imprison all the editors of the newspapers across the world
that published the offending cartons. - Otherwise: let freedom of speech bloom.
Editor's Note: According to The
Australian 21/2/06, Austria actually has on its statute books a "Banning Law"
which forbids public questioning of the Holocaust or the glorification of the
Nazi regime! David Irving is to spend three years in an Austrian prison because
he dares to question the accepted politically correct version of history.
Klacki the prosecutor in Irving's Austrian trial is "prepared - with the help
of advisers - to make a speech affirming the reality of the Holocaust." One would
have thought in a court of law the evidence would have been presented, the facts
established, affirming the reality of the claims of the Holocaust! Instead the
prosecutor is prepared "to make a speech"? What sort of court of law is that?
Sounds to me horribly like those that flourished under the Soviet regime in Communist

FREE SPEECH FOR
GOOSESTEPPERS TOO?by Peter Ewer
Pluss, a US academic, pretended to be a neo-Nazi to do authentic research ("Neo-Nazi
to the Goosestep," The Australian 8/2/06, p.36). He even set himself up
to be sacked from his university, Fairleigh Dickinson, so that he too could suffer
the same type of marginalisation that neo-Nazis face.
To do this he wrote
a pseudonymous letter to the editor of the Fairleigh Dickinson student newspaper
which 'outed' him as a neo-Nazi and faster than you could swallow a bagel, he
was sacked. While much could be said about these research methods, what is of
interest to me is the violation of academic freedom.
If Pluss had expressed
radical left or Islamic views he would not have been touched - even if advocating
violence and revolution. "Extreme right" views - even without the advocation of
violence - are not tolerated even in the land of the so-called free.
Ian Wilson LL.B.
Let us conduct a brief cook's tour of the loss of freedom
in Western countries under the pretence of combating terrorism. First, in the
State of Victoria, Premier Steve Bracks has said that he is likely to water-down
the Victorian anti-terrorism legislation relating to the strip-searching of children
as young as 10 by police officers of the opposite sex and without the knowledge
of their parents. Now such strip searches of children will only be done in "extreme
circumstances" such as when an imminent terrorist attack is happening.
strip-searching a Muslim child - say a 10-year-old girl - by a big burley policeman
will achieve in terror control is anybody's guess, but suppose that a weapon of
mass destruction could be stored in her knickers.
Britain around 36,000 people were stopped and searched in 2005 under the emergency
powers. Section 44 of the Terrorist Act gives police the power to stop and search
people. Of the 35,776 searches only 455 were arrested on any charge. The search
power under the Terrorist Act changes the previous legal situation which required
police to have a suspicion that one had committed a crime. Now no such suspicion
is needed to stop and search. Numerous political
protesters have been stopped and searched, according to The Independent
In the United States President Bush
has defended his decision to allow spying on US citizens without court approval,
saying that the action was both legal and necessary. He claimed that the domestic
spying programme was only aimed at people actively working with al-Qaeda. As a
matter of fact thousands of phone calls and emails by innocent Americans were
scrutinised. Few terrorists are stupid enough to broadcast their intentions on
the phone or computer.
But that is not the
point of the exercise: it is all part of a drive for social control and restraint.
Back to Australia.
The Howard government is gearing up to implement an Australian
identity card and is to use a retired judge or senior public servant to head a
review to be "conducted independently of government". The ID cards with biometric
data would cost over $1.6 billion to produce. But the government cannot even securely
operate the Aviation Security Identity Card system, where 384 cards have gone
missing. One can only guess at the abuses which will occur.
day passes for us and seems a normal enough day. But the enemies of freedom tirelessly
work away, like white ants in a building, munching away at the infrastructure
of freedom. Sometimes we don't even know what we have lost until long after we
have lost it. We awake to find yet another chain around us.
ISLAMIC GLASS JAWS
Through the smoke of burning embassies, torched by Islamists offended
about cartoons with depictions of the Prophet Muhammed and now, the dead - one
must ask why: why do Islamists have glass jaws? "Glass jaw" is a boxing term and
means that the fighter is easily hurt or knocked out. Islamists are the equivalent:
easily hurt by any slight. Who else is like that?
as "blogger" (an awful internet in-term) Tim Blair points out at timblair.net
in publishing the 12 Danish cartoons on 6/2/06, Islamists are free of vilification.
He points out that Sheik Khalid Yasin, a regular preacher in Australia has said
that Christians deliberately infected Africans with AIDS. Tim Blair continues:
"Yasin wouldn't merely draw cartoons of homosexuals - he'd have them put to death
in accordance with Koranic law. One Imam told Australian
students that Jews put poison in bananas. Iraqis voting in their country's elections
were shot at and otherwise intimidated by Islamic extremists whose banners announced:
'You vote, you die'. These friends of free speech were also observed photographing
those who dared vote."
"Sheik Feiz Muhammad told
a supportive Bankstown crowd last year that women deserved to be raped if they
wore "satanical" garments, including anything "strapless, backless, [or] sleeveless"
and also "miniskirts [and] tight jeans."
that's a lot of raping for swarthy "lions" to do. Is more proof required of the
failure of multicultural/multiracial societies? It has taken time but the folly
of the post World War II immigration scam is beginning to unfold. It is a pity
that the West must burn for its foolishness.
R U TIRED OF FEMINISTS?
"Women of the Senate Unite on RU486" said the headline of The
Australian of 10/2/06, p.1. And to leave no doubt there was a coloured picture
of the sisters of the senate, after the bill to end Health Minister Tony Abbot's
veto power over the abortion pill RU486, passed. "Well done girls" was hailed
as 23 of the 26 women voted to support it.
Pro-RU486 supporter Amanda Vanstone
put the issue as all of these women had put it: as a feminist one. Women need
a pill to take to eliminate junior to ensure their freedom. The "foetus" anyway
is not a "person" and thus does not have rights, although Amanda the demander
said of the pro-life lobby that they should get another name as "frankly, that
describes everybody in this place. I do not know anybody who is against life."
Well my dear, you and your feminist colleagues are against life because
RU486 kills foetuses and also has a range of ill-health effects on women users.
And, surprise, surprise - foetuses are alive! Continuing with her femi-logic Vanstone
said: "if you can come to the view that there can be a just war, why can there
never be a just abortion?"
The issue with RU486 is not about whether or not
an abortion is ever justified (say in grave medical emergencies or in the case
of rape) but on demand as a matter of convenience.
is strange that feminists have supported anti-racist "liberation" agendas but
have discriminated in the most brutal way against foetuses, whom they regard as
bio-junk to be disposed of by chemical or blade attacks. Native vegetation gets
treated better than foetuses in the feminist great chain of being.
DANGER SIGNALS FOR US? : UK MIGRATION
by Tom Barnes
Over 4.3 million
people born abroad were living in Britain at the time of the 2001 Census. This
is an increase of one million people compared with 1991. In London one in four
were born abroad ("Britain Now Home to 4.3m Immigrants," Weekly Telegraph
20 September 2005). The Weekly Telegraph breaks down the top places of
birth so that the Republic of Ireland is first at 494,850.
However if we look
at matters from a racial perspective and add up the figures for India, Pakistan,
the Caribbean, Bangladesh and Kenya (ignoring South Africa) we get a grand total
of 1,870,330 largely coloured migrants from these countries alone. Is it any wonder
that sensible thinkers are doubting whether British society can survive.
deliberate act of public policy:
Leo McKinstry, in an article published
in Washington's The Weekly Standard (reprinted "France Right to Insist
on Assimilation," The Australian 29 November 2005, p.12) says that Britain
faces even graver problems than France because of multiculturalism. McKinstry
"In truth, Britain is now a deeply divided land where suspicion, intolerance
and aggression cast their shadow over urban areas. This sorry situation has been
created by a deliberate act of public policy. For the past three decades, in response
to waves of mass immigration, the civic institutions of Britain have eagerly implemented
the ideology of multiculturalism. Instead of promoting a cohesive British identity,
they have encouraged immigrant communities to cling to the traditions and languages
of their countries of origin. The emphasis is on upholding ethnic and cultural
differences rather than achieving assimilation."
The result is, that according
to one survey, 13 per cent of British Muslims (who number 1.6 million) support
home-grown terrorism. McKinstry addressed his criticisms of British multiculturalism
in favour of French assimilation. But the French riots show that assimilation
fails when the numbers of racially distinct and ethnically/religious people get
in large numbers. Eventually it is the majority population who "assimilate" to
the migrant population, being bred out of existence as happened to the Nordic
Greeks and Romans of antiquity.
police no longer control Malmø, Sweden's third largest city, the city being "ruled
by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants" according to: <wwwaftanbladet.se/vss/nyhter/story/0,2789,529910,co.html.>
Ambulance workers are attacked by weapons and no longer work without police escort.
Police only enter parts of the city with several patrols. Native Nordic Swedes
have evacuated the city of Malmø because of the fear of crime. City buses now
avoid the immigrant area. Gang rapes involving Muslim immigrant males and native
Swedish girls - as occurred in Australia and France with their respective White
girls - is commonplace.
Since the beginning of 2003, rapes in Sweden have
increased by 17 per cent, according to this internet source. Stories of gang rapes
are common in Swedish newspapers. Ninety (90) per cent of Muslim immigrants in
Malmø are unemployed and some Muslims who have lived in Sweden for twenty years
have not learnt Swedish.
Växjö University economics professor Jan Ekberg found
that immigration cost Swedish taxpayers DKK 33 billion in 2002, even more than
Denmark at DDK 10 billion. Muslim migrants are actively encouraged to enter Sweden
through family reunion programmes. Demography dictates, with high Muslim birth
rates, and below replacement level birth rates of Europeans, that Eurabia and
the establishment of Sharia (Islamic) law, is only a matter of time.
fundamentalists in Asia hope to create an Islamic state from Thailand to Indonesia,
which will eventually engulf Australia. "Democracy" and Western modernity will
be replaced by Sharia law (The Australian 22 November 2005).
it is all a question of numbers: if the numbers of Muslim fundamentalists in Asia
grows to a majority, or near majority, that will be a reality? I do not condemn
Muslims for their way of life and nor do I cite examples of racial conflict to
encourage an "us-versus-them" situation.
fault for Europe's failure lies in a mindless "anti-racist" immigration policy
which alone is responsible for the present racism in Europe - on both sides. These
immigration policies are not and would never have been practised by Middle Eastern
countries if the roles were reversed. The politicians and the intelligentsia who
loathe European culture and people are responsible for the present suffering of
Europe and it is they, rather than Muslims, who deserve criticism.
It has been well known for some time that the Japanese have been
illegally fishing southern blue-fin tuna from Australian waters. Although there
is an international fishing quota of around 15,000 tonnes, over 50,000 tonnes
of the southern blue-fin tuna lobs on to the Japanese market yearly. (The Australian
A Port Lincoln fisherman, Hagen Stehr, wants Australia to
impose sanctions on Japan. He has said: "It's international fraud. All of the
illegally caught tuna ends up on the Japanese market. The Japanese government
is doing nothing
they totally disregard it."
The illegal tuna is bought by
the Japanese fish market at below international export prices. Australian tuna
farmers then have to accept lower prices to remain in the market. The Australian
government has done nothing even though the Australian tuna industry is at risk.
same type of problem can be seen daily in a wide number of areas. Thus foreign
students are not routinely subjected to police checks in Victoria and are thus
eligible to become security guards. "An internal Victoria Police report warns
that a foreign national could be linked to an extremist group in their homeland
but enter Australia on a student visa and weeks later be employed in Victoria
as a guard." (The Age 11/2/06. p.5).
sitting on the same page is another story that is a "ripper":
Sudanese refugee ("Former" as he is here now) Taban William Gany had a blood alcohol
level of 0.175 (which is more than three times the legal limit) when, in May 19
2005, he crashed into a brick wall of Dandenong West Primary School. He injured
five students, four of them seriously. One little boy had to have his right foot
amputated and another little girl suffered multiple fractures.
was given a three-year suspended sentence! The trial judge took into account the
fact that the Sudanese was a refugee:
"I defy anyone to regard your past without
a twinge of sadness and a regard for the penitential nature of a good part of
your adult existence."
That is cold comfort for the parents of one child who
constantly wakes at night in fear and pain. The drunk driver was able to walk
free because he was a black refugee.
tuna, foreign student and refugee stories are examples of issues seen in the daily
papers that may not at first glance seem connected. However they are. The
common theme is that "foreign is good/ special/ protected, local is inferior/prey."
The Australian government doesn't care about
the welfare of Australians because long ago it sold out to International Finance
and now merely acts as a night watchman of Foreign interests. Consequently it
can give away hard won public assets and allow local industries to be destroyed
as a matter of course. The same theme weaves through the other stories.
yourself: if you or me had injured those children, would we have walked away scot
free? We, rightly, would be in prison.
BEATINGS AND LAW REFORM
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
One of the 93 proposals contained in the Western Australian Law Reform Commission
report into Aboriginal Customary Law, is that Western Australian Courts should
take into account traditional punishments, including spearings and beatings, when
sentencing Aboriginal offenders. This proposal has received a "sympathetic response"
from the WA Attorney-General Jim McGinty who said that Aboriginal offenders have
been punished twice. (The Australian 7/2/06, p.4): once by customary law
and once by Australian law.
Here is news
for Mr. McGinty: there is only one law and that is Australian law.
to keep Aboriginals out of goal by this strategy is sure to backfire in the end.
Although Aborigines made up only 3 per cent of WA's population in 2004, 40 per
cent of the prison population were Aboriginal. Although the Left would like to
pretend that these criminals are the victims of racism, everyone of these persons
is in goal after a trial by law.
Most of these offences are not committed
in a tribal context in Aboriginal communities, but are offences by Blacks against
Whites - which is not covered by traditional law. You see, traditional Aboriginal
law is not politically correct. Tribal law will generate anomalies, as the editorial
of The Australian 7/2/06 p.13, recognised.
Aboriginal elder in the Northern Territory in 2005 received a one-month prison
sentence for the sexual assault of a 14 year old girl promised to him in marriage.
Under indigenous customs, rape of such young girls, was common. In fact, it wasn't
"rape" because women were property. Where were the fat feminist lawyers baying
for this girl's rights? Did the yoke of political correctness make it too difficult
for them to raise their heads from grazing on the morning tea's cream cake array?
to the generosity of a number of contributors the figure has reached $19,700.10.
We are nearly a third of the way there. Let's keep the momentum going. Make your
TO THE EDITOR
Sir: The following letter was
sent to The Hon Mrs Dana Vale, Parliament House, Canberra:
This note is to put a little balance into your remark which voiced
the concerns of the average Australian. Regardless of the pros and cons of the
abortion debate neither I nor anyone to whom I have spoken can understand why
both sides of Parliament, the press, the TV networks and the radio have come down
on you like a ton of bricks for just stating the concerns of the average Australian.
A Muslin representative was given the opportunity to have a go at you but
out of the millions who agree with you, no one was given the opportunity to present
the feelings of the general population of Australia.
Media did take the opportunity to say how wonderfully successful our Multi Cultural
programme has been in the past by citing the assimilation of Greeks, Italians
and Europeans generally, but in each case the fact that these migrants were from
Christian countries and shared a similar standard of ethics and behaviour was
not mentioned. Neither was the FACT that throughout the world's history, when
different races of radically different faiths, beliefs and heritages are thrown
together they do not live in harmony and either one side or the other will eventually
dominate. The Muslin spokesman said that they would not continue to have large
families because they could not afford to do so in Australia; but surely they
could afford large families a lot less in the countries where they came from?
We believe that the present Government policies
of financially helping families to have more children are well worthwhile but
it will also help to breed the Christian Caucasian race out of existence. It is
a serious problem and it is hard to shut the stable door once the horse has bolted,
as all this should have been anticipated and sorted out before the Government
blindly started to favour immigration from Muslim countries over Europeans who
were ready and willing to migrate to Australia.
I know and have known of many
British would-be migrants who have wanted to migrate at their own expense but
have been turned away in favour of Asians, African and North African assisted
It was not my intention to give you all this information of which
I am sure you as a fair dinkum thinking Representative of your constituents, are
well aware, but the main reason for this letter is to encourage your right and
indeed duty to represent the views and feelings of your constituents and the people
of Australia, and also to register alarm that Political Correctness has gone so
far and become so entrenched that not even an MHR can express a view which is
widely the concern of the people of Australia ,without being censured by the Government,
and ridiculed by both sides of the House and the mainstream media.
thing we can expect is to be cracked down upon by the Thought Police.
sincerely, Edward Paterson, Kingscliff NSW.
