On Target

13 March 2006 Thought for the Week:
"Man, seeing himself as part of a "cosmic spiritual drama," and feeling his power to make history, developed an historical and scientific habit of mind; and the fact of a common culture without political or economic uniformity, produced the unique diversity in unity which has been Europe. The trend now is to political and economic uniformity without cultural and spiritual unity… The differences between Christians and Pagans or Moslems had not been one of race or language, but a gulf between two spiritual worlds. The transition had been a change not only of religious beliefs but of laws, customs, art, even a new script…
The secularist tendency of the last three centuries had detached some Christian principles from their context - the rights of man, liberty, equality (before God), social justice; when the lack of an independent basis for these ideas was realised, men turned to nationalism, class, or race, starting a new world of exclusive antagonistic ideologies which undermine the very existence of Western civilisation."
Sir David Kelly in "The Hungry Sheep," 1955.

THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME

by Brian Simpson

Clash of Civilisations? What clash of civilisations? Not here in Australia, my multicultural mate! That is the thesis of multiculturalist George Megalogenis. ("Comedy of Terrors," The Weekend Australian, 11-12/2/06, p.20). Sure there may be conflict overseas, but Australia has been the real multicultural success story. Wave after wave of migrants has been injected into the Australian population with no problems at all - meaning - that the dominant Anglo-Saxon population has not resorted to violence against them! With such a low standard of success how can one lose? After all, the Anglo Saxons in Australia have accepted the lies about the changing of the White Australia policy. Malcolm Fraser has said that if politicians were open about the abandonment of this policy then we would never have had the Greeks and the Italians here - and where would that have left George?
Megalogenis is not a megagenius to observe that Australia did not experience the riots and murders seen elsewhere in the world. Australia does not have the high concentration of Muslims as France and lacks the hard core extremists that Europe has, or at least in great numbers. Megalogenis claims that the cartoons were published in Australia in Queensland and on Tim Blair's website.
However no Australian newspaper published all the cartoons and Brisbane's Courier- Mail printed only one.
The authorities also kept a tight lid on the situation after the Cronulla race riots. (But as a test case, how about The Australian newspaper publishing all twelve cartoons on its front page? Let's see what happens then. George could even write the cover story.)
Megalogenis does not show that Australia's multiculturalism will continue to be a "success" even by his low re-definition of the term. To date Australian elites have got away with their programme of ethnic warfare and racial dilution of the Anglo population by the Fabian socialist strategy of bringing in relatively small numbers per annum of a diverse number of racial and ethnic groups. A divide and conquer strategy. But this situation has changed.

Howard's 'asianisation' of Australia:

Under Paul Keating in 1996 Arabs accounted for 7.7 per cent of the annual immigration intake. Under John Howard in 2004-2005 the figure rose to 10.5 per cent. The Howard government has run in its term of office a "Yellow-brown Australia policy" with the Asian component (not counting Middle Easterners) exceeding 70 per cent for most years.**
According to Megalogenis the most efficient weapon available to counter the clash of civilisations is "immigration because there will always be more Muslims queuing for a visa than for a vest of dynamite."
That sentiment misses the point: when numbers of an ethnic minority reach a certain poorly defined threshold a quantum change occurs in their group behaviour. This has been seen in Europe where in places like Holland with large Muslim populations there is an emergent demand for Sharia law.
As Wassim Doureihi, the Australian spokesman for the radical Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, has said: "There is no possibility of harmonious co-existence between Islam and the West because there is a fundamental conflict. Ultimately one has to prevail."
Megalogenis' multiculturalism is incapable of dealing with groups who reject multiculturalism, the rule of law and Enlightenment values. His only "solution" is to replicate the conflict witnessed elsewhere by advocating even more immigration.
This is a form of multiculturalism which is truly "fundamentalist" and irrational: cure the disease by administering more poison!

MULTICULTURALISM CONTINUES TO CRACK

by James Reed

The Cronulla race riots and now the "cartoon crisis" - multiculturalism has taken a beating and this is early days yet! What will the world be like when (not if) an Islamist terrorist atomic bomb vapourises New York (said by terrorist experts to be their most likely target)? Will a nuclear armed Iran level Israel and make Europe glow with the fall out? Such questions are no longer the domain of paranoid cranks, but are real and troublesome issues worrying security experts.
Destruction by terrorist weapons of mass destruction is balanced on the scale of terror by weapons of multicultural destruction, which can equally as effectively level a society and civilisation. The elites and new class are starting to get worried about multiculturalism. For example, The Australian 10//2/06, p.6 features two articles from surprising sources which indicate some shift of ground.
Tim Costello, a well known supporter of most things I hate, although arguing that the "cartoonist crisis" is not an argument to show that Muslims aren't ready for democracy, says something very important about freedom of speech:
"Free speech and free press are only free if that freedom includes the freedom to be offensive and irresponsible. Sure they can and should be criticised if they are either or both, but that does not mean they cannot publish what they want."
"That there are limits to this is obvious, but they are extremely narrow. Vilification, even hateful, racist, sexist or religious vilification, should not be an offence in my view. Nor should Holocaust denial."
A brave defence of free speech indeed but not one likely to make the Zionist lobby happy.

Queensland State Labor MPs, Rachel Nolan, Andrew McNamara and Craig Wallace put it bluntly in their article "Foster National Values, Ditch Multiculturalism". They say that the "abuse of bikini-clad women by Muslim men on Sydney beaches has brought the clash of cultures much closer to our suburban homes." Multiculturalism is a policy "that pushes acceptance of difference as an end in itself" and this is "a hopelessly inadequate moral and cultural guide." Further, it "is completely unable to deal with ethnic cultures that won't implicitly accept Australia's core values."
This was essentially the critique of multiculturalism which Professor Blainey and other conservatives made in the 1980s.
Superficially though, these Labor MPs go on to say that the ethnically diverse US "has no real fear of a home-grown terrorist blowing up a train" because of an integration of migrants into core cultural/national values. Now, although this is better than multiculturalism, it is still, in my opinion, no cast iron protection from terrorism.
Have they forgotten that a White man Tim McVeigh (allegedly - there are a lot of conspiracy theories on this) blew up a federal building in Oklahoma City and McVeigh was a brave soldier and patriot? All that said and done, it is an eye-opener to see the conservative critique of multiculturalism now being made by members of the Australian left.


SAYING WHAT WE ALL KNOW

by Brian Simpson

At long last! A Middle Eastern man has been arrested in regard to the stabbings of six White teenagers in the car park behind Bondi Beach. The NSW Opposition Leader Peter Debnam said that "Middle Eastern thugs have been running riot for about 10 years." He also said:
"There's a subculture of increasingly brazen Middle Eastern young men who will have a go at anyone."
Anyone? Does that mean that in the future these young lions will "have a go at the glazed-eyed, left wing, multicultural politically correct, guilt-ridden ideologues that pose as intellectuals in our McUniversities (once known as "ivory towers" but now resembling something out of The Two Towers by Tolkien)?
If this cultural catastrophe happens, will Australian Studies brainwashing books for undergraduates still see the young lions as "victims of racism"? On this hot and steamy Saturday afternoon in Southern Sydney, I ponder these questions and others, my meditations interrupted only by the sounds of screams, gunshots and the arguments of drug dealers.

A DIRTY STORY

by James Reed

"Generation Sex," (The Age Good Weekend 11/2/06) is about female "raunch culture". This grotty article is about the sexual practices of the new generation of females aged 20-plus. Readers of our type of periodicals probably are not in touch with what is happening in the great public toilet of youth culture: designer drugs, lesbianism, oral and anal sex, internet pornography, all wrapped up in consumerism, feminism and every politically correct ideology imaginable.
Any one of these cancers would be a major threat to the future of the race, but we unfortunately have all these diseases at once. This culture of decadence is leading to the breakdown of marriage and the family as well as an enduring drug culture which keeps the coffers of the ethnic warlords ever-over flowing.
This situation of social anomaly and fundamental breakdown in values is seldom even recognised in freedom movement publications and it is already accepted as "normal" in the standard establishment conservative scribble sheets. It strikes me that this problem is in many ways more fundamental than the usual economic issues (e.g. Telstra, AWB, etc., etc.) that concern us. These young people are supposed to carry the flame of civilisation but they are essentially techno-savages.
Fortunately, the decadent youth, although sizeable in number and highly influential, does not constitute the bulk of young people. More than ever there is a need for people from 'our' side of politics to reach out to youth because at present the Socialist left/greens have them all to themselves. The political situation is changing, and now as never before, they need to hear what we have to say.


TERRA NULLIUS, THE HIGH COURT AND HISTORIANS

Taken from an article by David Flint, Australians for Constitutional Monarchy:

"Mabo was an extraordinary case both as to its conclusion, and the process the judges adopted in coming to their decision in a case apparently limited to the rights of certain Torres Straits Islanders, who were not nomads. The judges, or at least a majority of them, did their own research, apparently relying on historical texts which O'Connor says are wrong.
Alone, Sir Daryl Dawson said that Aboriginal land rights were a matter for legislation, not for judicial interpretation.
(Mabo decided that native title survived the British acquisition in relation to land the Crown had not alienated by way of grants. It therefore seemed to affect Crown land only. This was dramatically extended in the Wik Case, where the Court was almost evenly balanced, 4:3. There the Court held that native title existed not only on Crown land, but also co-existed with leasehold title held principally by farmers. This led to hotly debated changes to the native titles' legislation which had been introduced by the Keating Government as a result of Mabo).

Since the case, it has been widely accepted that terra nullius was the defining doctrine used by the British both to justify their acquisition of Australia and the system of land law they introduced. This assumed all land was vested in the Crown, which could then make grants to the settlers. The orthodox view today in the schools and universities is that the High Court has conclusively demonstrated that the British were in error in determining that Australia was terra nullius, and that accordingly the birth of our nation, almost alone in the world, is legally tainted. The High Court did not rule that the acquisition was illegal -it could not. Its own authority ultimately derived from the settlement. But its conclusion that the British were wrong to assume that Australia was terra nullius and that no land rights survived has led establishment historians to come to this conclusion.

Terra Nullius invention
Michael Connor argues that all this is based on a judicial fallacy. In his new book, "The Invention of Terra Nullius," (Macleay Books, 2005), Connor claims that terra nullius was surreptitiously introduced into political and legal debate as recently as the 1970s. Most of the original owners or occupiers of land across the world have been dispossessed by their successors. This is true on all continents. As international law developed, the right of a state to annex territory came to be limited, particularly in the twentieth century.

Mabo 'hangs on' international law at time of settlement
But the Mabo case hangs on the state of international law, not today, but at the time of the settlement. At that time, a state could, under international law, annex territory, occupied or not. The concept of terra nullius, the right of a state to occupy land without a sovereign, peopled or not, arose well after the settlement.

Hence the British made no judgement as to whether or not Australia constituted terra nullius; they had not heard of such a concept because it did not exist. The Australian asked me to write on this, my piece appearing on 10 February, 2006: https://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,18096939%255E7583,00.html
(Note that the internet version contains a minor misprint in transposing the French term territoire sans maître )

Not everyone will agree with Michael Connor, or indeed with my conclusions, which of course are not ACM's. The historical question is whether the British, as the basis of their acquisition, and for the purposes of land law, determined Australia to be terra nullius? After all, that is the 'received truth' which is being taught today.

There is no evidence that they did
This has nothing to do with the compelling argument that Aboriginal Australians are entitled to the same rights and opportunities as all other Australians. Nor is it a critique of the early administrators, who were, by the standards of the time enlightened - and instructed to be enlightened by the Colonial Office - in the treatment of the indigenous people.

This is not just an academic argument
Since Mabo, the suggestion is that the birth of our nation, unlike the acquisition of just about every other square inch of the earth, was somehow tainted under the law of nations, international law then prevailing. This is not so.
Almost alone among the nations, a considerable proportion of the people and especially our youth, have been taught and are being taught to labour under a burden of guilt about the birth of Australia. If this is based on a fallacy, as I think Connor clearly demonstrates, this burden should be lifted. (There may be a legal consequence for those deleteriously affected by Mabo, which I mention in my piece).

At the very least, the schools and universities, and the media are under an ethical obligation to ensure Australians and foreign scholars are at least aware of Connor's thesis.
May we expect scholars such as Michael Connor and Keith Windschuttle to be, say, ABC Boyer lecturers, in the coming years? Will they be offered platforms in our universities and on our public broadcasters. Most importantly, will their works be prescribed as a text or reference by academia?
Rather, I suspect these works will be proscribed both by the media and the academy, with certain honourable exceptions. And I repeat, less there be any misunderstanding, acceptance of Connor's argument does not mean, and should not be taken to mean, that the nation should not continue to address the discrepancy in the living standards of the indigenous people."

GOOD IF YOU CAN GET IT

by Peter Ewer

Former premier Bob Carr still has a full-time police body-guard six months after becoming a private citizen. This is at a cost to tax payers of $150,000 a year, according to The Sunday Telegraph (5/2/06). This is allegedly because of Carr's stand on terrorism, even though senior police cited by The Sunday Telegraph said that there was no evidence of any threat to the former NSW premier.
Carr apparently earns $500,000 a year as a consultant to Macquarie Bank and is entitled to a parliamentary pension of around $130,000 a year. Umm… just put another grape in my mouth Jeeves…

LETTER FROM DAVID IRVING

David Irving: Defiant & Determined, Release Date: 27/02/06:

The following is a letter received by a good supporter of political prisoner David Irving, now languishing under a three year sentence in an Austrian jail. His crime - in 1989, "denying the holocaust" - the new secular religion of much of the West. This letter was written just before Mr. Irving went on trial and explains his intentions to plead guilty, Paul Fromm, Canada:

Dear ___:
I have received around 600 letters, but yours was one that I was looking out for!
In twelve days time, they will hold the trial. (I have been in a 2 X 2.5m metal box for the last 100 days after being forced off the road by several carloads of police and arrested at gunpoint. So much for the land of "The Sound of Music"!)
It will be a difficult trial because the world's press will be there (February 20 and perhaps 21) which adds to the macabre theatre. I have to plea guilty, there is no alternative: if a crazy police-state enacts a law against wearing brown neckties, and an unwitting Englishman came 17 years ago wearing a (gasp!) brown necktie, then of course he is going to find himself arrested at gunpoint (8.9 mm Glock pistols pointed at my head!) when he comes next time 17 years later. There is now no way of pleading innocent to that. I refuse to allow any foreign government to dictate to me what I may think, say, or write. That is what this is all about. To Americans this whole situation must appear totally remote from reality.
I have had to explain to Jessica (12) that I am in prison because of an opinion I expressed 17 years before I ever met her mother.
As for the other details, you will appreciate there is a lot I would like to say in a letter but cannot because all mail to and from me is read by prison censorship.
I suspect I was lured to Austria as a trap, an ambush. There is a lot of evidence pointing in that direction. I have not heard a single word from Olympia, the student body which (seemingly) invited me to come and lecture on November 11; no letter, no visit, nothing! I warned them in e-mails that I would not talk about the "Holocaust" even if their members asked questions.
Anyway, I have so far been able to get a lot of work done, on memoirs, the "Himmler" biography, and "Churchill". This whole situation is a disaster for the reputation of Austria, because many intellectuals around the world, including left-wingers have openly criticised my arrest.
I am in fine spirits, and not about to go down. In the exercise yard the murderers, rapists, cocaine-dealers and robbers ask, "What you in for!' and I feel such a wimp saying it is because of an opinion I expressed on history seventeen years ago. "Oh, right then!" they say, and go shuffling off looking for a real criminal to walk round the yard with.
Wait until you see the outcome of February 20, so you can see what address to reply to. I am hoping it will not be here. The cost to me has already been around $100,000 in lost contracts, and the like. The Austrians are bad folks .... David


COMMONWEALTH GAMES AND THE ROYAL ANTHEM

Mr. Phillip Benwell has written the following letter to:
Mr Ron Walker AC, Chairman, Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Corporation, South Melbourne Vic 3205. 28/2/2006.

Dear Mr Walker,
Reference is made to a statement attributed to a M2006 spokeswoman:
"We are not required to play the English National Anthem at the opening ceremony and we shall not be playing the English National Anthem at the Opening Ceremony"
It is disappointing that the slogan adopted by the Commonwealth Games 2006 "United by the Moment' has been slighted even before the Games have begun by these undiplomatic, incorrect and most offensive comments which surely could have been couched in less aggressive terminology.
In the first instance 'God Save The Queen' is not the English National Anthem but that of the British. It is also the Royal Anthem of Australia.
The statement could perhaps have been better worded by issuing a statement along the lines of: "It has been deemed not to be appropriate to play the Royal Anthem as it is also the National Anthem of Great Britain against whom Australia is competing and Buckingham Palace have concurred that 'Advance Australia Fair' should be played."
Yours sincerely, Philip Benwell National Chairman,
Australian Monarchist League

Note: an 'anthem' is a prayer, a hymn, a song of praise to God, a saint or a nation. The Australian national 'anthem' was originally introduced by Bob Hawke's Fabian socialist government as the National Song, and it does not mention God. Not too many saints that I can see either!.

S.A. STATE ELECTIONS

It is predicted the Rann Labor government will be returned on 18th March. The rumour is widely circulated that the Liberals are 'cash-strapped' and appealing for funds 'no matter how small'.
We know it is a case of 'tweedle dee and/or tweedle dumber', but the Liberals can't say they don't deserve to be out in the political wilderness. Their fall from favour has something to do with the sell-off of South Australia's assets such as ETSA (Electricity Trust of South Australia).
During an extreme heat wave this summer many families experienced power failures to their homes for lengthy periods of time.
In a letter to The Advertiser, 31/1/06 a Mr. Richard Bennett of McLaren Vale said it all:
"In an emergency Premier Mike Rann would, no doubt, recall Parliament. Hot weather in summer and power failures are not, in my opinion, the key issues to recall Parliament. Hot weather in summer and power failures stemming from a privatised public asset maximising its profits should be expected.
What is unexpected is that the former Liberal government gave ETSA a period of two hundred years to take our money overseas while experimenting with efficient power delivery. It would be more to the point to recall John Olsen and ask him why he wanted to give eight generations of South Australians dodgy power delivery."

VALE TONY PITT OF QUEENSLAND

It is with great sadness that we report on the news of Tony Pitt's passing. Our sincerest sympathy to Pat his wife and true helpmate.
Well done Tony. You really did 'fight the good fight'. A true-blue Auusie.
