Comrade Prime Minister: John Howard is the socialist alternative

Never mind the ALP, John Howard is the socialist alternative.

The charge sheet is long and compelling:

Paul(ine) Hanson stands by convicted child molestor

The flame-haired fishwife from Ipswich who believes that black people are pox ridden, that Muslim immigration must be halted has no trouble accepting a convicted child molester into her inner circle.

Unsurprisingly she also has some difficulty distinguishing between allegations of and a conviction for a child sex offence.

For Austrolabe, a buffoon like Hanson is a gift that just keeps giving.

The scientific method: Ibn Al Haitham to Karl Popper

1. Ibn Al Haitham created the scientific method. Prior to the Islamic Enlightenment there was no science; it had not been invented.

2. The scientific method is an instrument of logic that is used to test a hypothesis. It is not (as its disciples believe) a explanation of the world.

3. One does not need to attack or undermine science to affirm Tawheed (an Islamic understanding of God). i.e. Harun Yayhaism is an unnecessary bidah. Not only is it intellectually bankrupt, it is fundamentally dishonest and an affront to our own contribution to civilization.

4. Most disciples of scientism, believe it to be an all encompassing explanation for everything without understanding the limitations of the scientific method.

Ed Husain: this week’s Prester John

Ed Hussein Prester John was a fabulous Christian King of the East, famed for his power and wisdom. European Christendom could be saved from the vast ascendant armies of the Islamic world, if only word could be got to him to attack the Islamic empire from behind. Together the eastern Nestorian king John and Western knights would defeat Islam and save Europe. A letter from John, widely circulated in Europe by the clergy, added fuel to the fire. John’s kingdom of 72 states, was a crime free paradise surrounded by the Muslim horde. The small matter of John being an entirely fictitious creation of the fevered imagination of European Christianity prevented this Baldric-esque “cunning plan”.

One thousand years later, little has changed in the dynamic between the Rum and the Muslims. Now however, the western consensus is that it is the Islam at the heart of the Muslim world that is antithetical to “progress”, that Muslims must therefore be separated from a coherent understanding of Islam, and that the only person who can achieve this is someone from within the faith. A theological Saracen version of the Prester John fable.

The western way of war

Jihadists are in for a rude shock when the see the poise, the steadfastness and determination on the faces and in the voices of the young lions of the west. Indeed, the WW2 generation is not dead.

I was reminded of the battle of Salamis, Alexander’s assault on Aoronos. How can anyone stand against such courage?

Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*

Thank God for blacks and Hispanics huh?

Much to celebrate

Despite first appearances there is much to celebrate in the Muslim world. We may not have one scientific journal with an impact factor of greater than one, Al Aqsa may be occupied, but we have something that the hated western imperial jackboot could never imagine; Turkish male belly dancers.

I can smell the body odour from here.

Man or Beast?


Hat tip: Dead Roo

It was refreshing to see the actual face, after viewing the “artist’s” impression for a whole month.

Lessons from the Haneef case

1. It is fortunate that Haneef is in Australia, it is unlikely that this chain of events would occur in India. It is even less likely to occur in a Muslim country, where terrorist suspects are sent to be skinned alive or tortured to death. We would do well to remember that the next time we “demand” that Australia be more welcoming to us.

2. It was specifically a free critical press and an independent judiciary that provided a counterweight to the executive. It is ironic that those wishing a utopian caliphate have never written about these two features of an “ideal” society, in their voluminous hectoring sermons. Whilst Muslims may not always appreciate the reporting of a free press, its value to them outweighs the small harm.

3. Muslims who are caught up in this type of process should give up relying on their “group” to aid them.

4. What is more troubling is that some groups may actually use one’s own plight as a vehicle for their own self promotion.

Australian Muslims: mice, not men

nullThe treatment of Dr Haneef has been deeply troubling for many Australians, of all political stripes. I don’t know if Haneef is guilty as charged (or guilty of more) but I hope he is, because if he is innocent then we have witnessed a high-tech public lynching.

What has equally surprised me has been the near universal silence of the plethora of Muslim organisations and their self-appointed leaders. Australian readers will recall that usually you cannot get these guys to shut up, they are willing to give an Islamic opinion on the opening of a tap. Some have offered “one on one” counselling to Australian models caught using drugs, others will show up to the opening of an envelope. They are the scourge of the public space.
