"SHOULD WE BE FORCED TO FINANCE SYMBOLS OF DOMINANCE OVER US?"

What is a politician? In short, a politician is a boss. A politician is someone who tells us what we can or can’t do. Their orders are known as “laws.” In democracies politicians are usually members of democratic political parties. However, dictators are politicians and so are party members in a communist country.
Of course, lots of people tell us what to do. Parents, bosses and spouses all give us orders. The difference between these orders and the laws which politicians make, is force.
If you don’t clean your room your mum might yell at you. If you don’t show up to work on time your boss might sack you.
But drive your car over the speed limit or fail to pay your taxes and see what happens. Politicians will inflict punishments on you. This could mean taking your property (money) or depriving you of liberty (jail). In some countries, depending on the crime, they might even kill you.
If you try to resist these punishments, the police will use sufficient force (up to and including deadly force) to carry them out.
This is not necessarily a bad thing of course. If we didn’t have laws, society would break down and the result would be a free for all. However, we place an inordinate amount of trust in our politicians because we give them a monopoly on violence.
History is filled with examples of governments abusing this power tyrannically and attacking their own citizens, or those of other nations.
The success of the Anglosphere stemmed mainly from the ability of the people in England to restrict the power of their leaders. The main driver for this was the island geography of the country. This removed the need for a standing army in peace time.
Without a permanent army, it was far more difficult for politicians to impose their will on the people. This restriction of political power has been the secret to human happiness, freedom and progress.
It has driven our technological achievements and helped to eliminate poverty and hunger wherever it has occurred.
Restricting the political power of our leaders was therefore the primary goal of the people who crafted our laws and constitutions.
Religions also wield considerable power, but in a different way to the State. Religions make threats and promises related to what will happen in the afterlife.
Religions (as they are understood in the West) do not make physical threats against unbelievers in order to impose their will.This is their defining characteristic. It is this difference which separates political institutions from religious ones.
There have been instances of course, where Christian institutions (notably the Catholic Church) have acted as a political force in their own right. There is no justification however, in any mainstream interpretation of Christian doctrine, which encourages Christians to spread their religion by violent conquest.
The threats and promises inherent in religious doctrine are less direct than threats of violence in a political system. Despite this, they are in some ways even more powerful.
Religions offer rewards in the afterlife. Consequently, religious leaders can make whatever promises they like. Religious leaders can offer rewards in the next life to compensate for hardships in this one. They can even offer incentives for people to sacrifice their lives. This is something which a political leader cannot do.
When the laws and constitutions of the Anglosphere were being drafted, Christianity was almost universal as the religion of the people. It is probably not a coincidence that this religion places restrictions on all men, including rulers.
These important restrictions include such commandments as “thou shall not kill, steal or covet". They also include the important “Golden Rule” which states that you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Thanks to a belief in a Christian afterlife, kings and rulers were limited by these rules. This belief system not only led to a reduction in tyranny, it acted as the basis of a successful philosophy which created prosperous and successful societies.
The point of a constitution is to restrict the power of governments. Constitutions aim to protect “We the people” from our rulers.
In order to restrict State power, the people who drafted our constitutions created systems in which power was devolved to different institutions. By doing so, they ensured that any branch of government which intended to become tyrannical would be restricted by the other branches.
Thus, while Parliament controlled civic institutions such as the police, the Head of State wielded control over the armed services. The Judiciary was given independence from either of these groups, as was (in theory) the Press.
Not surprisingly, the founders of our constitutions also insisted on the separation of Church and State (note the word “Church” rather than “Temple” or “Mosque”).
The Church was seen as a separate power which, in the event of the government becoming despotic, would provide a rallying point of moral resistance. The wisdom of this approach was demonstrated by the role of the Catholic Church in the fall of Communism.
Thus, the principle of the separation of Church and State was enshrined into our Constitution and our culture.
Section 116 of the Australian Constitution demands that: "The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth."
What our founders never envisioned in their wildest dreams however, was that we would open our borders and welcome a flood of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Muslims and members of other non-Christian religions.
For most other religions, this did not make too much difference. However, Islam is not simply a religion. It is a political ideology with political goals. These goals are clearly stated in Islamic doctrine and include (but are not limited to) the conquest and domination of the entire world, the enslavement of non-Muslims, often in sexual slavery, and the destruction of non-Islamic cultures.
For those not familiar with this aspect of Islam, it is covered extensively in my book “The Story of Mohammed Islam Unveiled.”
When Islam entered Western societies, it recognised the protection that the Christian Church enjoyed from the political powers. It immediately demanded that same status for itself.
The political powers in the West at that time were entirely ignorant of the political objectives of Islamic doctrine. They naively accepted Islam as a religious entity and granted it the same protections from the other branches of government that Christianity enjoyed.
Unfortunately, it is the combination of political and religious power which gives Islam its advantage.The ability to motivate its fighters with promises of a sexual paradise in the afterlife has always given it an advantage in conflicts with other societies.
Even today, it is the power of the suicide bomber, motivated by the promise of heavenly virgins, which terrifies our security personnel. It is also the relentless encroachment of Sharia Law which steadily undermines our defences and our freedoms.
This combination of religious and political power is the secret to Islam’s success. It is also the cornerstone of any strategy for defeating it.
Viruses spread by infecting a host cell, taking control and then using the cell to replicate more of itself.
It has often been noted, that Islam spreads in some ways like a virus, entering a society, taking control and then causing that country to produce more Muslim warriors.
In order to protect themselves, viruses often have a coating which makes them seem benign, thereby rendering the body’s defences powerless.
In a similar way, Islam cloaks itself in the garb of a religion rendering the natural protective systems of our security services impotent.
The best anti-viral medicines are the ones which strip away the outer coatings of the virus, leaving the body’s immune system to deal with the intruder. Likewise, the most effective way to deal with Islam, is to strip away its religious cloak.
Up until now, we in the Counter-Jihad have been effective in educating people about the true nature of Islam. Now the time has come to translate this knowledge into action.
The time has come to campaign for a change in Islam’s classification. It must lose its label as a purely religious institution. Using the definitions above, it must be properly classified as a political institution with religious aspects.
Once we achieve this, our national security agencies can properly deal with it under existing legislation which allows for the elimination of hostile political organisations.
2016 was a year of tremendous political upheaval. 2017 should be the year we leverage our new found power. Rather than trying to kill the wolf, we should simply strip it of its “sheep’s clothing.”
This is my New Years resolution and I hope you can make it yours. I will be writing and lobbying every politician, bureaucrat or media organisation I can think of to achieve this goal by the end of this year.
If you can influence friends, bloggers or followers then I would encourage you to do the same. If we all pull in the same direction, we can pull this off and completely change the whole game.
Can you imagine how easy it would be to fight against a mosque if it was classified as the headquarters of a political organisation whose stated goal is world domination?
Can you imagine how easy it would be to fight against halal certification if it was considered to be a tax levied by a hostile political entity?
How difficult would it be to oppose Islamic immigration if Islam was recognised as a violent political movement?
We are no longer the few. Today we are many and we are growing relentlessly. If each of us makes a small effort, together we will create a tsunami which will put an end to this evil for good.
A petition is now circulating which will be presented to the Parliament in less than four weeks’ time. The petition demands the reclassification of Islam as a political movement with religious aspects. If we can get hundreds of thousands of signatures on that petition, it will make our politicians sit up and take notice. Make sure you sign this petition. You can find it by clicking on the following link:
That link will also give you lots of other options. You can download a pre-written letter to send to your MP and Senators. You can download a leaflet to print out and distribute in your neighbourhood. Don’t just sign the petition, make sure everyone you know signs too. Your details will not be released.
Facebook and other social media are especially powerful. Promote this campaign relentlessly. Our politicians will never do anything if we don’t force them to. It is up to us to hold a blowtorch to their feet until we get results. If we don’t, then nothing will happen and we will have no one to blame but ourselves.
Yesterday I was in London. I took time out to visit Westminster Bridge and put a Union Jack flag there to remember the fallen. There is no other way to defeat this ideology. We have to expose it as a political system and remove its religious classification.
The power is in your hands.
Come on Aussie, what are you waiting for?
