Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


In national polling, taken almost four years ago, the ABC reported half of all Australians surveyed held anti-Muslim sentiments. Four years on, it’s safe to assume that the vast majority of Australians now want something substantive done about the Islamic threat.

The time for puerile platitudes, appeasement, inclusiveness and tolerance of terrorism-related crimes is over. Tony Abbott consistently refuses to identify Islam as the root cause of extremism while anti-Muslim European nationals (pictured) take to the streets in their tens of thousands.

Normally only the unions march in anger in our streets, but stand by, Aussies are becoming furious at Government inaction on the threat of Islamic immigration. They are demanding Government defend its people first. 

Unfortunately Abbott is struggling to separate the Islamic State from the “religion” of Islam despite Islam having already declared war on us. 

“ISIS fighters returning home will suffer psychological scars”, said Queensland's Police Commissioner, Ian Stewart, when asked to comment on up to a dozen (he couldn’t say how many) ISIS fighters who were now back residing in Queensland suburbs... “we are monitoring them”, he said... "monitoring them", did he say?

Sorry fellas, but here’s why counselling and an array of other remedial measures won’t work: After the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632, the Muslim world was divided into Sunnis and Shiites. 

Shiites believed that only a divinely inspired Imam could properly interpret the meaning of the Koran and that only certain direct descendants of Muhammad's cousin and son-in-law, Ali, were qualified to assume the role of Imam. 

This Imam should exercise supreme political and spiritual authority over the entire Muslim world. 

Between 1090 and 1273 the original disadvantaged Shia Muslims morphed into the dreaded “Order of Assassins” and they played a singular and sinister role in the formation of Islam. 

This Shiite sect more properly known as the Nizari Ismailis were relatively few, geographically dispersed, and despised as heretics by the Sunni Muslim majority. 

The Assassins had no answer to the military superiority of the Sunnis, so they infiltrated the enemy, using sleeper cells that stayed embedded for years, waiting for a signal from their ruthless leader, Hasan-i Sabbah, who had forged this small, persecuted sect into one of the most lethally effective terrorist groups the world had ever seen. 

Even the most powerful rulers of the age, the Abbasid and Fatimid Caliphs who ruled important cities like Damascus, Homs, and Mosul, lived in fear of the chameleon-like Assassin agents.

The Fatimid Caliphs had conquered Egypt in 969 and had then advanced farther east to occupy Palestine, the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, and parts of Syria and they had dreamt of capturing Baghdad, dethroning the Abbasids, and eventually uniting the entire Muslim world under the one rule. 

Anyway, these agents, known as Fida'i (one who risks his life voluntarily, or the present-day Fedayeen) would spend years infiltrating and gaining the confidence of enemies before killing them in very public places. 

Perhaps most terrifying, the Assassins chose not only a close and personal type of murder but performed it implacably, refusing to flee afterward and appearing to welcome their own swift death. 

Both Shia and Sunni were determined that there be one form of Islam before turning their swords on the Christians.

[Surely you can see historical similarities to today's ISIS now Tony?]

In the mid-11th century, a vigorous band of Sunnis, the Seljuk Turks of central Asia, won control of Persia and Mesopotamia and became the new masters of the Abbasid Caliphs. 

At the same time, the Fatimid caliphate was weakened by internal disunity and by the challenge presented by the European Crusaders who arrived in the Levant and took Jerusalem in 1099. 

The Levant area is exactly what the Islamic State (ISIL) is now determined to establish as a Caliphate which includes Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Turkey, Syria and Iraq, from there it’s on to Europe and Africa... and they will use any means to obtain that aim.

The history of Islam is drenched in generational hatred of other Muslims and any others who would dare oppose their genocidal ambitions. It has been that way for over a 1,000 years and the West is now in their crosshairs.

Islamic extremism is not something we can control or ameliorate, it can only be confronted and dealt with on the battlefield, not on the counsellor’s couch.

You see, Tony, you can call them a death cult or by any name you want, they don't care. You are wrestling with smoke. You can invite senior Muslim clerics to tea and bickies and beg them to control their youth, but they are already in control of their youth, it is they who educate their minds in the same way they did 1,000 years ago.

Why the explosion of mosques and Islamic schools? Could it be to teach Muslims kids all about Australiana? 

"Deradicalisation" is a term we use, they use terms like martyr and honour. Appeasement is just a silly concept they laugh at. They are driven by a blind belief in something more powerful than your Christianity. 

Tony, you’d have a better chance of convincing yourself the Pope isn't Catholic than convincing a Muslim not to follow the true path of Islam.


Islam is full on evil. I didn't think so 5 years ago. What I have discovered since then is horrific. Taquiyya/deception, teachs hate to all non-Muslims. Death for apostasy, blasphemy. It is hard to believe that Muslims really do believe this stuff and act by killing.

Propaganda my ass..Why does it say if you dont believe then i will cut your head off. Iam Church of England..which means no religion but i dont say "have no religion or i will cut your head off for believing". If its not about religion then why have they been fighting over religion for hundreds of years. Islam is like cancer and it should be eradicated. Simple

It is ONLY propaganda that holds the "Islamophobia" line. Once the People see that they have been deceived by propaganda and see that the media have been lying to them, then the tide will turn. We need to press the question - "What RACE is Islam?" The entire "racist" argument revolves around continually plugging this LIE. Once the People see through this monstrosity of a lie - the propaganda, the heads of the treasonous politicians will roll.

Islam..., a cult for murderous psychopath, uneducated, ignorant and brain dead segment of the worldwide population. A more dangerous movement than nazism and communism put together. Islam wants the world to be a caliphate and control the world through terror and mayhem. It has to be stopped. As of this writing, it is winning.....without a fight! Shake your burqua, bow to meccah. Our politicians.... that we elect, are part of the brain dead, they do not see or don't want to see what is happening. By the time they realize it, it'll be too late. The end of freedom as we know it. Christian God help us. Allah is the devil and mohammed its agent.

Well said as usual Larry I'm totally over this ovine excretia, have been for years. The last two generations of Australians have no idea what a joke is. We have totally Lat our unique culture..

Larry, Radical in its true definition is something away from the normal or tradition. To deradicalise a muslim is to take them back to the norm or take them back to tradition, these guys are already there. "Radical Islam" and I use the inverted commas for the fact it is a phrase that has been bandied about because it is seen in the eyes of a westerner as not normal. ISIS is normal and the bloke next door (I live in Guildford) is a radical. He is polite and does not do anything to annoy me, other than stay up till umpteen oclock because he has nothing better to do with his days. He is the radical. If he was a regular everyday follower of Islam and ignored me, cut my head off and raped my wife and children, he would be a normal muslim. Defining a Terrorist as Radical is an oxymoron.

The majority of Australians will NEVER accept Islam. Malcolm or Bill will have to come to terms with this after the election. Simmering hatred is counterproductive...

Muslims are all atheist, that is because Allah, Mohammed, and the Quoran are simply non-existent, dead or fiction. Thus they believe in nothing.?

Interesting that Islam reckons there will be peace when the entire world is converted. IF that is the case then why aren't the 100% Islamic countries the most peaceful places on earth?? All of them a paradise that everyone wants to visit and take up residence? EVERYONE of them is a basket case, violent cesspits of murder and mayhem. Peaceful religion??? Pigs arse.

We must deport all Muslims right now. That the only solution. Just imagine it a 75% reduction in Crime, Massive Government savings as a direct result to the significant reduction in Welfare costing's, 99% reduction in Western Sydney Shootings, No need for a Middle Eastern Crime Squad, No more Mosques, No more Burkas, No more obnoxious, ignorant behaviour by Muslims when attending our Justice systems, No more Walied Alley, No more Imams, 99.9% reduction in Terrorism. Australia the way it was before Labour fucked the country up.

Mohammad's followers don't give a RATS what we Think of them anyhow.
OR What we DO.....Either way they WIN
Either they inherit the WORLD

Islam: What the world thinks of them.
The world is acting on the extreme dangers of the encroaching violent Islam.
• Cuba rejects plans for first mosque.
• The African nation of Angola has officially become the first country to ban Islam.
• Record number of Muslims deported from Norway last year as a way of fighting crime.
• Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
• Austrian police arrested 13 men targeting suspected jihad recruiters.
• A Chinese court sends 22 Muslim Imams to jail for 5 to 16 years for spreading hatred.
• Australia government plans to broaden the listing criteria for terrorist organization. We now have Malcolm Turnbull telling us "We must learn to get on with the Muslims and understand them." Wow.

IF politicians won't do anything to fix this issue, we the people will do something about you - the gutless ones....clean out your offices next election. ALA is coming to take you jobs and defend our nation. Something you never had the gonads for, Bye-bye...don't get comfortable with the blessings of political retirement. They are going to be taken away from you deceitful traitorous clowns...

Patty, have you seen the latest. juLIAR gizzard is taking credit for the tough stance on border control in Australia. I believe that Maxalon or Stemitol (chemist will know how to spell it correctly) are drugs that help with NAUSEA.

Europe with it's thousands of years of culture, music, art, civilisation etc. is at an end, due to unauthorised Muslim immigration, encouraged by nit wits like Merkel. Europe has reached it's zenith, it is downhill from now on, unless something very drastic happens... and I am at a loss to imagine what could reverse this absolute disaster.

Mass immigration is on the verge of DESTROYING Europe, blasts LEO MCKINSTRY

SEVERAL millennia were required to build European civilisation but its impending destruction has been the work of just a few years, carried out by a cadre of irresponsible, unpatriotic and deluded politicians led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

PUBLISHED: 08:25, Thu, Nov 5, 2015 | UPDATED: 09:05, Thu, Nov 5, 2015Dressing up their vandalism as compassion and their cowardice as moral superiority, these leaders have created an immigration crisis so profound that the very existence of our European culture and heritage is under mortal threat.
The tragic paradox of the obsession with free movement and the abolition of national identities is that Europe in any meaningful sense will probably cease t

Well good luck with that Rump. I don't like the bloke at all and I think he may change Australia for the worse. I admire your loyalty though and you should contribute more, not many highlights in the current crop. Long live the King was not a good call of Republican Mal.

How is Malcolm Turnbull fitting into that philosophy Rump?
