...because your enemy has already chosen you

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.


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.

Whether radical, extreme or moderate, it’s still Islam from the same Koran, taught by the same clerics from the same mosques and clerics don’t get to be clerics through moderation. It’s time we rejected the apologists for Islam.

No religion in history has contributed so little and taken so much, and now it’s time to take it back. 

In 2001, there were 280,000 Muslims in Australia (1.5% of the population) 36% of whom were born here. In 2013 there were almost 500,000 with 85% having been born here and an incredible 44% aged 20 or under. 

There are 373 mosques in Australia with many more under construction or awaiting Green infiltrated council approval, while the Left and Islamic leaders object to telcos being asked to hold metadata for a lousy two years. Why would that be? Do they not want to leave tracks? 

Banks are embracing hideous Sharia law because of the billions of dollars pouring from oil-rich Islamic States like Saudi Arabia, but you cannot expect any less from banks. 

Sharia is the pure form of Islam, watered down versions are simply biding their time, they are prepared to wait for the global caliphate they were promised.

Under an Islamic caliphate those Muslims who do not accept the pure form of Islam are slaughtered, as has been the case in Iraq. As with Christianity, competing variations of the same faith are the real enemy, apostasy and atheism are ripe for conversion. 

Catholicism may covet your mind but it won’t slaughter its brothers to achieve it. Christianity will lose to Islam and only determined political will can destroy it. 

Australia, per capita, has the fastest growing Muslim population of all developed nations. Last year, more than 10,000 of NSW students were enrolled in Islamic schools, four times the number enrolled in 1998. 

The number of Muslim children aged between five and 14 in NSW increased by more than 20% in the five years between 2006 and 2011, according to the most recent census data. Suburban Sydney is the political and religious centre of Australian Islam.

While some of Sydney's private schools charge up to $30,000 a year per student, Islamic school fees are between $1000 and $3000 a year with more than a dozen Islamic organisations receiving generous government assistance beyond normal education grants.

Islamic schools will benefit the most from Gillard’s Gonski funding, given they have a higher proportion of students with language backgrounds other than English.

The looming problem is the increasing number of terrorist related crimes which are invariably Islam-based and cannot be dealt with by deportation because they will be committed by home-grown Muslims.

If we were to stop all Islamic immigration right now, the problem will still become exponentially greater each year with the existing population.

What we can and must do is recognise the threat we face from Islam-based organisations and deal with them before they deal with us. 

Islam has proved itself a dangerous cult world-wide. It infiltrates and seeks to destroy our way of life from within and under the guise of multiculturalism. It takes and never gives.

It should be no surprise that the murderer of James Foley has an English accent. Thousands of young Muslims from Europe have gone to join the Islamic State in killing their Shia brothers and Christian enemies. Over 150 from Australia, 900 from France, 200 from Belgium and over 1,000 from the UK have left their Islamic ghettos with the blessing and applause of friends and family.

Thousands more have joined the fight from Scandinavia and other European countries.

To do nothing is to allow a sophisticated Islamic terrorist State dedicated to destroying the West to evolve unimpeded. 

In Islam, jihad is a religious obligation. It forms part of the duties a Muslim must fulfil. This instruction is repeated ad nauseum in the Koran. How much more evidence do we need?

The international solution is simple. A coalition of the willing must destroy the Islamic State immediately, preventing its entrenchment. It can be done quickly with ground troops supported by air strikes. 

Arm the Kurds who, unlike Iraqis, will fight and not run. Drive the Islamic State back into Syria and stop arming them. 

Stop trying to kill Bashar Assad and use him and his ally, Vladimir Putin, to continue to try to rid Syria and the Levant of these Islamic vermin. There is no other way. 

Obama created this mess and now he must have the humility to join Russia and Syria in mending it. 

Back home in Australia, Islam should be declared a dangerous cult, the proliferation of mosques must be stopped. Halal certification of our foods must be outlawed (it’s an illegal protection racket not even the Mafia got away with and it’s financing terrorism) the 87% of Healthy Muslims who are on disability pensions and welfare must be removed from the gravy train and clerics who preach violence (they all do) must be deported or prosecuted and jailed.

No Australian child should be educated in any language other than English. 

No Islamic leader should be expected to, or asked to, “reform” Islam’s youth... it is they who created Islam’s youth. Don’t ask for their assistance, deport them.

There I’ve said again what I’ve been saying for six years and now it may be too late. But there is a belated tsunami of opposition welling up to defeat the Islamic cancer. 

James Foley has become a catalyst and political parties are being formed but they risk charges of extremism from both major Parties who will simply preference them out of existence while encouraging flippant fools like Palmer and Lambie.

But you can smell the anger and when the Australian heartland is awoken from its “she’ll be right” slumber, prepare for a bitter fight to the end... we’ve done it before. 

The Islamic State wants you to see this video because it wants to weaken your resolve. I want you to see it because as an Australian it will make you stronger.


All believers are deluded. How can you make stuff up and blindly believe it? How can religious fanatics kill one another when it states in their religious text Do Not Murder! I don't recall seeing an asterix and footnote saying except non believers. If their gods want others dead well why is a man doing his bidding? Oh because he can't do that because he doesn't exist!!

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Announcement;
New 9/11 Movie for Release Next Month on 9/11 13th. Anniversary.
The effort to expose the truth about 9/11, specifically the destruction of the three WTC skyscrapers, has been building gradually over the past 13 years. Momentum has surged over the past 12 months in particular. Our work at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the efforts of the ReThink911 campaign, and the contributions of many outstanding scholars, researchers, and dedicated activists have combined to make a remarkable impact


From the DT:

The leader of one of Australia’s radical Islamic centres and friend of Islamic State terrorist Khaled Sharrouf has challenged the Abbott government to revoke his citizenship.

Al-Risalah Islamic Centre manager Wissam Haddad and his supporters claim they will “give up their passports” if they can leave without “being ­incriminated”.

Mr Haddad’s offer came in response to Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s $64 million counter-terrorism package and a Daily Telegraph story last week about comments he made to “live and die” for the Islamic flag instead of the ­Australian flag.

Mohammad, an al-Risalah supporter, called Ray Hadley’s 2GB show to ask for his help to have his passport cancelled so he could return to Turkey.

“People like myself are happy to leave this country, leave our passport, leave our citizenship if the government allows us to go,” Mr Haddad told 2GB.

“If the government allows the people that don’t want to be here to sign away to give up their citizenship, to give up their passports, to go without being incriminated in any sort of way and mind you this isn’t to go fight or to take up arms. We don’t sound like we’re welcome in Australia.”

Foreign Minister Julie ­Bishop said people were free to renounce their citizenship but warned the government would continue to cancel the passports of anyone deemed a potential national security threat.

“Australian citizenship is a privilege,” Ms Bishop said.

“ ... Individuals who choose to seek the citizenship of another nation or renounce their Australian citizenship are free to do so as they wish.”

Mr Haddad, born in ­Australia to Lebanese parents, is the leader of the southwest Sydney centre who refuses to be photographed in public or interviewed on camera.

Mohammad, who claims he is a 22-year-old Muslim convert from Sydney’s southwest, said he supported enforcing sharia law across Australia.

His passport has been cancelled by ASIO.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison told The Daily Telegraph last night there would be “no leave passes for terrorists”.

muslim is a religion not a race. once again you lefties cannot understand simple realities

You may be aware that "Dick Smith" chain franchise stores are being pressured by the Islamic Council of Australia to gain 'Halal Certification' otherwise they will be proscribed and banned from Muslim custom. This their response:
"We at Dick Smith's have received a number of letters from people asking if we will be putting the Muslim Halal logo on our food. To acquire Halal certification, payment is required to the endorsing body (the Islamic Council) and involves a number of site inspections of both our growers and processors in order to ensure that our practices comply with the conditions of Halal certification. It is important to note that this does not reflect the quality of the food being processed or sold – it only means that the products are approved as being prepared in accordance with the traditions of the Muslim faith.
We are aware of an increasing number of large companies both in Australia and overseas, such as Kraft and Cadbury, who have obtained accreditation to use the Halal logo. We don’t believe they have done this because of any religious commitment but rather for purely commercial reasons. Perhaps these large organisations can afford to do this.
While we have a choice however, we would prefer to avoid unnecessarily increasing the cost of our products in order to pay for Halal accreditation when this money would be better spent continuing to support important charitable causes where assistance is greatly needed. We point out that we have never been asked to put a Christian symbol (or any other religious symbol) on our food requiring that we send money to a Christian organisation for the right to do so.
Others would add that money paid to ANY Muslim 'organisation' (and you had better believe it: these people ARE 'organised')can easily find its way into the hands of Islamic extremist-fanatics and murderers, irrespective of assurances to the contrary.
What other assurances do we accept from Muslims?
Oh, that's right, 'Islam is a religion of PEACE'!
How less Australian can companies get, than to place money into the hands of those who seek to exploit us?"

Todd Browning's?

Continued from below. We have an election due next year and loads of people say they will vote UKIP, they are mad to vote UKIP, they intend to abolish our workers rights such as sick pay and holiday pay and equal rights for women. The people who say they will vote for them won't accept that UKIP intend to do this even though they have said so clearly. Some people can't be trusted with their vote.

Here in UK we have a party called BNP British National Party. The media and the other parties scream racist at them every time they are mentioned. Why? because they say we should stop immigration because we are full to bursting and because they warn us that Islam is a danger to the country. There are loads of people here who agree with them yet if you suggest they vote BNP they say no , they are racists. They are so brainwashed they can't see that they need to vote for the party that is in tune with their thoughts. I despair of these people. We have a party called UKIP who the people think will save them from everything, they won't listen when you tell them that UKIP only want to stop immigration from Europe, expel east Europeans and bring in more Pakistanis and Africans to replace them.

From the Daily Telegraph:

Before we get to my big apology, let’s review recent events.

Last week’s column about Sydney’s Muslim heartland of Lakemba upset one or two people.

Shouty lawyer Chris Murphy, guest Fairfax columnist Zeynab Gamieldien and the usual online types all decided that the piece was racist.

Apparently these people believe Islam is a race rather than a religion.

Here’s a typically charming note from Twitter identity Melinda: “Tim, you’re a dumb, racist little bitch, you really don’t amount to anything, hope you die.”

Thankfully, for Mel and other fans, there is a quick way to sort this out. First, convert to Islam. All you need to do is recite the Testimony of Faith, which runs something like this: “La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah.”

There you go. Job done.

Now try converting to Asian, or white, or Aboriginal, or some other race that you are not. It’s slightly more difficult.

While you’re struggling with that racial change, consider the reaction to revelations in my column that Lakemba’s Islamic Bookstore is selling books that demonise Jews, praise Hitler and slam women as unintelligent and worthless.

“To try to paint the whole of Lakemba as being typified by the contents of an obscure bookshop really stretches the imagination,” wrote Canterbury mayor Brian Robson.

The shop isn’t obscure. It’s large and it’s in the middle of Haldon St. Moreover, it has been there for 16 years and is clearly profitable, which is more than many other Sydney bookstores can say.

Note to Borders: maybe your chain would still be open if you’d concentrated on selling sexist and anti-Semitic texts in Sydney’s southwest. Seems to be quite a market.

“Last time I checked, nearly every suburb in Sydney has bookstores, yet we don’t define the residents of those suburbs by what the authors of those books say or think,” wrote Labor’s member for Lakemba Robert Furolo.

“That would be just absurd.”

Really, Bob? In almost every other Sydney suburb, a shop selling outright hate literature would face protests and closure.

In Lakemba, however, it’s a successful business model.

At least those two mentioned the shop. A number of other critics couldn’t even bring themselves to acknowledge it.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s John Birmingham offered 341 words on my column last Saturday, all of them avoiding a certain awkward subject. “The truth of Lakemba,” he concluded, “is the greater truth of Sydney.”

Birmingham wrote that from 1000km away in Brisbane.

Lakemba resident Gamieldien, writing for Fairfax’s online ladypages, also sidestepped the book issue, merely noting that I had provided “several quotes from three books he happened to spot among the hundreds on shelves”.

As it happens, one of them — Women Who Deserve To Go To Hell — was in the front window.

On those quotes, it may be instructive to change a key word or two. Imagine the reaction if Sydney stores sold books containing these lines:

“Is it allowed to support and love Muslims? No, it is not allowed.”

“Men’s perfection is because of various reasons: intelligence, religion, etc. At most, four Muslims have this perfection.”

“No one can deny the fact that the Muslims are the worst kind of barbarian killers the world has ever known!!! The decent great Adolf Hitler of Germany never killed in the manner of the Muslims!!! Surely only mad people or those who love killing infants, pregnant women and the infirm will think differently.”

Just a hunch, but that sort of thing might lead to a protest or two. When an Islamic store produces identical slurs against women and Jews, however, the PC crowd is absolutely silent. Their standards are difficult to understand. A few weeks ago, for example, Sydney journalism academic Wendy Bacon led an attempted advertiser boycott of The Daily Telegraph after I ran an online poll making fun of feminist “frightbats”. Apparently it’s just fine, though, to sell books that claim women are worth only half the value of a man. And they are going to hell.

The ABC’s Jonathan Green performed an impressive leftist twostep, first describing my Islamic Bookstore criticism as a case of “book burning” then urging censorship of images showing the imminent Islamic State beheading of US journalist James Foley. Consistency isn’t exactly his strong suit — unless you’re talking about consistent cowardice in the face of Islam.

Anyhow, enough of this evidence-based malarky. Time to get this apology out of the way.

To any readers who actually followed those instructions at the top of the column and converted to Islam, I neglected to include an important warning. Although converting to Islam is extremely easy, converting from Islam — particularly in the Middle East — may cause beatings, head loss and death by stoning.

Looks like you’re stuck with it. Sorry about that.

First Larry, the left will call you a racist (their standard response when they have no argument ). Then they’ll call you an internet nut-job (a title that you should wear with pride after the Gillard affair) and finally they’ll discredit your article by tickling our tummies with the standard bullshit. You know, Islam is a religion of peace and all that. Then one night we’ll be woken by screaming in the streets, as gangs of armed Muslims drag our neighbours from their homes and torture and behead them in the name of Allah. We can then reflect on “peaceful Islam” as we search for our guns……oh wait, we won’t have any. They’ve been taken away…by the left.

From Daily Telegraph:


A member of a self-styled radical Islamic street gang is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed at a Western Sydney birthday party.

The 17-year-old, who labels himself a “soldier of Hezbollah”, was in a serious condition last night while his attacker remains at large.

Friends of the teenager, who also self-identifies as being part of the “Fourtwozero (420)” gang sent messages of support to the injured “shiaa soulija” (sic) on Saturday.

The stabbed teen, who attends a Parramatta high school and had surgery on Friday, has a quote from radical Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah as his Facebook cover photo. “Let us be killed by a bullet to our chest. Not in our back,” it reads.

The Daily Telegraph has been told by a friend of the Coombes family that another teenager, who was pictured being arrested by police after allegedly throwing a bottle at one officer, armed himself with two knives before the stabbing.

A lot of advice here on radical Islam, most of it given with great chutzpah and confidence. Not a lot of it with on-the-ground experience in the middle east. I strongly recommend everyone to listen to a conversation Richard Fidler recently had with Michael Ware. You can get it at

Yes it’s on the (almost) universally hated ABC but I would forever defend Fidler as a damn good interviewer with no discernible political agenda.

Thing is… Michael Ware was actually captured by IS and was moments away from having his head hacked off. Tends to focus the mind, I imagine. Whatever, please listen. I don’t think you will find a more informed gent and one, to my mind at least, really, truly, has his feet on the ground.

I can remember seeing a Channel 9 reporter doing a street interview in Lakemba just after Australia announced it was sending military units to assist in Gulf War 1 in late 1990. The 'Australian' man of Lebanese extraction being interviewed was vehemently against Australia becoming involved in the war. The reporter asked him who he would fight for, Sadaam Hussein or Australia, if he had to make a choice. The Lebanese man had the good grace to look totally discomfited - and did not answer, which was an answer in itself.

Some might ask - what's changed since then? I'd reply that such attitudes have become far, far more deeply entrenched, and far more widespread, among "Australians" of Lebanese and other Muslim extraction since then.


British intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6 have identified the man suspected of the horrific beheading of American journalist James Foley, according to UK media reports.

The hooded man with an English accent is believed to be 23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, known to fellow Islamic State militants as Jihadi John.

The former rapper left his family home in an affluent west London suburb last year to fight in the civil war in Syria.

In early August he tweeted a photo of himself wearing military camouflage and a black hood, while holding a severed head in his left hand.

British SAS forces are hunting Mr Foley's killers, using a range of high-tech equipment to track him down and potentially free other hostages.

The Mail on Sunday is reporting that a "significant force" of SAS personnel has been deployed to northern Iraq over the past two days, joining local units fighting IS. They have fanned out into four-man teams, accompanying Iraqi and Kurdish troops in an effort to find British jihadis.

The Sunday Times reports that Bary is the key focus of the man hunt. He is one of the British jihadists former hostages referred to as the Beatles because of their British accents. The two others were called "George" and "Ringo".

The two other Britons suspected of involvement in the crime are Aine Davis, a former drug dealer who converted to Islam, and Dr Shajul Islam, a disgraced medic with extremist links.

Bary is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trail on terrorism in Manhattan, due to his alleged involvement in the bombing of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.

Before leaving the family home to fight in Syria, Bary was an aspiring rapper known as L Jinny whose music was played on one of the UK's most popular radio stations, BBC Radio 1.

Recordings of his songs will prove vital to the investigating team, with experts using voice recognition technology to match his voice with that of the man who brutally decapitated Mr Foley.

Bary made a number of music videos for his songs, with titles such as Flying High, Dreamer and Overdose.

It is believed he was indoctrinated by an Islamic preacher named Anjem Choudary who persuaded him to join the fight in Syria.

Great to see all the white people here crying how they are being invaded. Have any of you thought of why theyre here ? They are here because we are there you idiots.. We invaded them for wealth and threw their countries into chaos, they fled to here and now we have peas and corn trying to taste the same. Dont blame the muslims, blame the greedy western governments for creating this. We went there first now all you over proud self righteous dicks blame them.. Open your eyes and wake up to the truth.. We are all being played by the elite powers and you peanuts are the biggest muppets doing their propagander for them. *slap, you fools embaress me.

Continued- white girls. he tried to get this investigated but was arrested and put on trial for 'inciting hatred'. He was found not guilty. From the beginning of last year, many gangs of muslims were arrested and tried and jailed for raping these young girls but they won't apologise to Nick for rubbishing him over this. Our useless PM is on youtube saying that the UK has too many white Christian faces and another MP Simon Hughes made a speech to a hall filled with muslims that he can't wait for the day when they take over. A lot of pissed off brits say they want to emigrate to Oz but I can see here that it's just as bad there. Why do these jackass politicians prefer muslim fascists to their own? Disgraceful it is.

Hello from England. I looked at this website after a comment in an English paper recommended it. It's great to see a paper that isn't afraid to tell it like it is, no English paper will do this, they all run articles telling us how wonderful Islam and muslims are. They would never allow such forthright reader comments are. The UK is being completely fucked over by the muslims here and our papers, the BBC and our mainstream political parties look the other way and call any objectors a bunch of racists. Only one party here tells the truth but they have no MPs because the media label them as racists, Nazis and fascists and basically tell the readers what they must think. Ten years ago, their leader Nick Griffin was informed by a concerned parent that a gang of muslims were raping underage
