Abu Hamza al-Masri, an imam at the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, was convicted on 11 counts of terrorism and taking 16 hostages in Yemen in 1998. He left three Britons and an Australian dead.
So good ol’ Bob Hawke had a predilection for getting his gear off? Hmmm, tell us something we don’t already know. Bob always thought it looked better out after a few beers and the stories are many and quite comical, particularly those emanating from my old drinking hole, the ANU Bar at closing time, which was any time the next day.
With a reputation for atrocities somewhere between Pol Pot and Idi Amin, nonagenarian and self-styled illegitimate Zimbabwean President Mugabe has been slaughtering white farmers in a sanctioned land grab and keeping his 14 million inhabitants starving and diseased while he occupies grandiose palaces... one for each day of the week.
A succession of below par Western leaders has given China an unexpected, and perhaps undeserved, leg-up to geopolitical prominence that threatens a weakened USA. There has never been a more incompetent Administration than that of Barack Obama’s.
One hesitates to call the President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs, a liar but she leaves you little room to call her anything else. Her appalling display when chairing an inquiry into child detention on Christmas Island last Friday left Scott Morrison nonplussed and viewers of A-Pac Channel reaching for bricks.
I haven’t gone near the rape allegations levelled against Bill Shorten. It’s a she-said-he-said charge and had little hope of getting to a court room. One person’s word against another, without a witness, usually has no hope of passing the DPP sniff test. It would have been unfair and a waste of time to put it to trial.
Abbott’s eyes tell the story. It’s bad, it’s evil, it’s vile and abhorrent ... and it’s Islam. World leaders are slowly coming to realise what for so long they have desperately tried to deny. No longer can they refuse to accept the obvious. Islam feeds off weakness and it has grown stronger and bolder on our reluctance to face its pixelised atrocities.
G.P: “Listen Frank, I’m applying to the Vatican for asylum.”
Greg Hunt is fighting a losing battle over global warming and his renewable energy targets. They might be manna from heaven for hyperventilating Green warmists but these expensive targets are bullshit to Abbott and gaining less and less traction with realists. The globe is certainly not warming and, if it was, we should be over the moon about it.
One night in March of 1973, and unbeknown to PM Gough Whitlam, Attorney General, Senator Lionel Murphy QC, with a squad of Federal Police raided the offices of ASIO in Canberra and on St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.
If 120,000 illegal immigrants poured unimpeded through Australia’s airports under Rudd and Gillard, and home-grown Islamic extremists can come and go as they please on each others’ passports, then our current Islamic problem is of our own making.
In a sharp response to the Government’s foreshadowed legislation on home grown terrorism, Australia’s Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohammad, (pictured right) has demanded Muslims be allowed to travel where they wish overseas and be allowed unrestricted re-entry to Australia. He claimed this was a basic right of all Muslims. In an incredible statement he reassured Australians that, if necessary, “We will re-educate them when they return.”
If Obama had nipped it in the bud in January the Islamic State would still be cowering under a rock somewhere in northern Syria. It claims an army of 10,000 (in Arabic that means 5,000) and that would barely make a decent crowd at an ARL match.
