DEAR JIMMY,

... Hi how are you?

Dear Jimmy, Hi how are you? Er, you probably have never heard of me, but of course I’ve heard of you, rock legend and all that. We do have a few things in common mind you. We both came from the UK (other side of the border) and settled in this great country.


HALAL TAX RETURN TIME

Many of us are struggling to complete our tax returns at this time of year. There is one insidious tax which we need to deal with however and this must be submitted by 31st of July. The cut off date for submissions to the Halal investigation is July 30th.


PAYING FOR AN INDULGENT MINORITY

The recent furore over the ABC’s inclusion of a convicted terrorist sympathiser on the guest list of Q&A is starting to die down. It has however raised an important but as yet unanswered question. Why do we need a public broadcaster at all?


REDEFINING RACISM

... it's not what it used to be

Words matter, they matter a lot. Words define our thoughts and our thoughts drive our actions. By the manipulation of language it is possible to effect changes without people even realising what has happened.


CAN YOU GET ANY LOWER Mr PRESIDENT?

Einstein defined Insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If he was right, then Government policies for combating Islamic violence are nothing short of insane.


IT WAS NO PICNIC BACK THEN, EITHER

I hate it when the alarm goes off at stupid o'clock on Anzac morning and I know I have to drag myself out of bed to go to the dawn service. At the same time I love the way that this small deprivation forces me to think of the sacrifices that were given to create this amazing society that we live in.


RECLAIM RALLY A SUCCESS

The hardest thing about being a journalist for a local paper is that not much ever happens in a small town. If a cat gets stuck up a tree, you rush down to get the scoop. School fete? Of course you will be there.


DYING UNDER THE WEIGHT OF FLOWERS

Education has come a long way since I was at school. Now that everyone has a calculator on their smart phone, there is no need for children to spend time learning useless things like times tables. Kids are now free to learn much more useful things instead.


Dear Journalist, vous n'êtes pas Charlie

Dear Journalist, Larry is now Charlie, he is on the hit list of Al-Qaeda. You probably feel a sense of relief that you are not on that list. Unfortunately, I have some rather bad news for you, actually you are.


THEY CAN KILL ME

...but my kid will know I cared

Protesters in Paris hold up the placards in a heart warming act of defiance, but for me, it is personal; I really am Charlie. I wrote a book about Islam and I write articles for Larry Pickering, an Australian cartoonist who makes Charlie Hebdo look like Walt Disney. In my articles and in my book I try to explain Islam.


THAT SINKING FEELING


HISTORY: Learn from it, or repeat it


THE FAKE SHEIK CARRIED A GENUINE FLAG

A follower of the Prophet Mohammed came to Sydney today, but he didn’t come to see the sights or enjoy the famous Australian welcome. No, this man came to deliver a message to the people of Australia; it is a message that most of us probably don’t want to hear.


HOW THE SAUDIS SPEND YOUR GROCERY MONEY

Every time you buy groceries from the supermarket it’s most likely you’re paying an Islamic tax to the government of Saudi Arabia. Today, around 80 per cent of supermarket food produce from Australia’s largest and most iconic brands are Halal Certified. An estimated 500 Australian based food companies pay this Islamic tax which is passed on to you at the checkout.


MULTICULTURALISM?

...first define “culture”

All of today’s Australians (even the Aboriginal people) are either migrants, or descended from people who migrated here from overseas. From the founding of the modern Australian State at Federation, until the early 1970’s, the basis of our immigration policy was more or less the same as that of the United States.


DRAGGING MOHAMMED TO THE MOUNTAIN

... the truth about his death

For thousands of years people have studied the Bible and argued over whether or not it contains the truth. Although parts of it do require a leap of faith, I have to say, it has stood up pretty well and no-one has been able to prove conclusively whether it is true or not. At the end of the day, it comes down to the individual, you either believe it or you don't.


The Burqa: Religious Freedom, or Religious Oppression?

In an article in Queensland’s Courier Mail yesterday (7/10/14), Paul Syvret took Senator Cory Bernardi to task. He implied that Bernardi was being hypocritical for supporting free speech, whilst being against the freedom to wear a religious face covering.


The End Game is Right Here Right Now


Why Oppose the Building of a Mosque?

In local councils across Australia, and indeed most of the Western World, applications are pending for the building of new Mosques. Until recently, these applications would have been approved with little more than a rubber stamp and a few suggestions as to local planning.
