I don’t always agree with the left leaning academics of the Western world.  Fortunately, there are a few areas where we can find some common ground.

One of these points relates to the cause of much of the strife in the Middle East today. When the British and French handed back the Ottoman Empire to its inhabitants, it was broken up into nation states.

Many of these states didn’t represent nations which had ever existed. They were created mostly to suit the colonial powers and their allies in the region. 

In many cases, the countries they created were a hotchpotch of different religious, ethnic and tribal groups. This has contributed to squabbles, disagreements, uprisings, oppression and conflict across the region. 

Of course, it is easy to criticise what others have done. Much harder, is to suggest a better alternative. We should also remember that international statesmen do not operate in a vacuum. 

What pressures they may have faced behind the scenes is something we can never know.

One example is the British Mandate for Palestine. This was originally created in 1920 by the League of Nations (forerunner to the UN). It was to be a homeland for the Jewish people with equal rights for all other groups living there. 

After WW1 however, the British Government was indebted to the Arabs. Under the leadership of T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), they had ousted the Ottoman Turks from Arabia. Ultimately, they had contributed to the downfall of the entire Ottoman Empire and the winning of the war.

In gratitude, the British broke off four fifths of the Mandate of Palestine, called it Trans-Jordan (later Jordan) and gave it to Abdullah bin Al-Hussein (who was the son of the Sherrif of Mecca), to rule over. Whilst this might not have gone down too well with the Jews at the time, it may inadvertently have been the best thing that ever happened to them.

Many of the local Arabs fled Israel in 1948 to avoid the Arab invasion. From this time until 1967, the Jews were left with a nation which was small, but for the most part ethnically and religiously homogenous.

This allowed them to create a stable democratic system and enjoy the benefits and legitimacy which flowed from it.

If the Jews had been given all of historical Israel as the League of Nations had intended then things might have been much different. In that case, Jews would likely have been a small minority in a much larger nation. Any attempt to impose democracy would have resulted in disaster.

In the only elections the Palestinians ever had, Hamas won in a landslide on a platform of wiping the Jews off the face of the earth. 

Democracy would never have been a viable option in an Arab majority Israel. The only alternative would be an unelected authoritarian government which would have been problematic for Jews as well as for Arabs. 

The internal stability and success Israel has enjoyed since that time is due at least partly to the fact that a great majority of Israeli citizens belong to the same religious and ethnic group. 

The other protectorates fared much worse. Jordan, which ended up with many of the Arab refugees from Israel, found itself in low level civil war with them. The Jordanians killed thousands of these refugees (the greatest massacre of Palestinians ever) to sort that one out. 

The Syrians suffered strife between its Alawite and Shiite populations. This has been kept in check so far by brutal Alawite rulers from the Assad family dynasty.

 Any stability Syria enjoyed previously is now unravelling precipitously. Fundamental Salafist group ISIS (formerly Al-Qaeda in Iraq) is busy making sure of that. Other minorities such as Christians or 

Yazidis have long suffered persecution while Syrian Jews were expelled long ago. Iraq wound up as a majority Shiite country ruled by brutal theocratic Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein. 

His legendary oppression and gassing of Kurds and Shiites was a major cause of the Iran Iraq war and ultimately led to the two Gulf wars. 

American attempts to establish democracy in this tribal mishmash have led to more deaths than the actual invasion.

Lebanon was 70% Christian in the 1930’s and proudly multicultural. As the minority Shiites bred their way to 50% of the population and the Sunni PLO fled there from Jordan, a bloody civil war engulfed that country too. 

For all its wealth, Saudi Arabia has barely held things together. They have had problems with a restive Shiite population in the main oil producing area of the country.

These are just a few of the better known problems of the Middle East in the post-colonial world. Not surprisingly, creating nations with a patchwork quilt of ethnic and religious groupings has led to civil unrest, violence and seething resentments.

 I can happily agree with that assessment. What I can’t understand is why the same intellectuals who understand this, believe that multiculturalism is the best concept since someone decided to slice the bread before they sold it.

Western democracies, particularly the UK, have been (for the most part) ethnically and culturally homogenous and internally peaceful for a long time.

Multiculturalism seeks to turn these societies into a patchwork quilt of different cultural, religious and ethnic groups. It encourages these groups to avoid assimilation into the host culture and provides taxpayer funding to achieve this goal. 

According to our intellectuals, this policy will improve and “enrich” Western homogenous cultures and increase “understanding and tolerance” leading to a more peaceful society.

Why would that be so? Why would someone believe that a policy which led to violence and civil war in the Middle East is going to result in a more peaceful society in the West? 

Perhaps we could understand if a welder or a bricklayer believed such a ridiculous notion. Academics however, are supposed to be our smartest thinkers. Why are they not able to figure this one out? 

In 2008, Griffith University was exposed in the Australian newspaper as having “practically begged the Saudi Arabian embassy to bankroll its Islamic campus for $1.3 million." They told the Saudis that this could be kept secret if required. Even moderate Muslims were alarmed by this development.$1.3 million may sound like a lot of money for a university. It is a drop in the ocean however, when compared to the $2.7 billion the Saudi government had earmarked for a scholarship fund for Australian universities. This was designed to facilitate the entry of Saudi students into Australia.

Universities have been saddled with quasi-corporate structures which have left them cash strapped and dependent on foreign fee paying students and donors. It is hardly a stretch to imagine that this hasn’t affected the academic culture of our times.

In my lifetime this culture has changed to become anti-American, anti-Western, anti-Christian, anti-Capitalist, anti-Jewish and pro Islamist jihadist. 

Finally however, it looks like the ridiculous hypocrisy of Western intellectuals is being challenged. 

In Britain Trevor Phillips, the former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, recently warned that “British Muslims are becoming a nation within a nation”. 

He said we are “in danger of sacrificing a generation of young British people to values that are antithetical to the beliefs of most of us, including many Muslims.” 

He also called for a new, tougher approach to integration and the abandonment of “the failed policy of multiculturalism".

Trevor Phillips' opinion is a big deal; it carries considerable weight. Apart from his former position, he is not an indigenous white English person. 

As a non-white from Guyana, his views cannot be dismissed with charges of racism. Mr Phillips change of heart is likely to inspire others in positions of authority to start speaking out. 

The recent behaviour of our leaders has been appalling. They have been selling their citizens interests down the river in exchange, directly or indirectly, for handsome remuneration from overseas interests.

At some point in the future the realisation will start to dawn on people that these actions constitute treason. This is a very serious crime with very serious penalties.

The citizens of the Western world will be looking for revenge while the elites will be desperately looking for scapegoats. 

As this plays out, the trickle of academics and leaders deserting the religion of peace will turn, rather suddenly, into a stampede.

What interesting times we live in.

O/T: Being Irish




Eight-year-old Muhammad entered his classroom on the first day of school.
"What's your name?", asked the teacher.
"Muhammad," he replied.
“You're in Ireland now," replied the teacher. "So from now on
You will be known as Mick."
Muhammad returned home after school.......
"How was your day, Muhammad?", his mother asked.
"My name is not Muhammad........ I'm in Ireland,
And now my name is Mick."
"Are you ashamed of your name?
Are you trying to Dishonour your parents, your heritage, your religion?
Shame on you!" And his mother beat him.
Then she called his father, who beat him again.

The next day Muhammad returned to school. The teacher saw all of his bruises.
"What happened to you, Mick?", she asked.
"Well, shortly after becoming an Irishman, I was attacked by two fucking Muslims."

Ok OT I know, but I hear that if Japan thinks it might not get the submarine gig.....(wait for it......) the Japanese PM might speak to Turnbull about it. Ooooooo!

Mark Twain described Jerusalem under Ottoman Muslim rule:

“Rags, wretchedness, poverty and dirt, those signs and symbols that indicate the presence of Moslem rule.”

Unless we "momentarily forget our principles" (Catholic Archbishop of Iraq) and kick them hard and kick them while they are down .... then we are finished

If you want your "Christian Cornfield" society to live in ... a society that we enjoy .... then the crows attacking our Cornfield must be eliminated .... so that tomorrows generation can still enjoy the Cornfield that we grew up in and love.

So gentle folk ... if you cannot stomach the thought of the fight ahead .. then stand aside and look the other way while those that have a dirty and unpleasant job to do .... saving our society .... get on with it

We must not be weak ... remember at the end of the day it is all an illusion on a stage

Harry, I am sure you are aware, that among the tradies, resides an ocean of common sense and intelligence. The fact that they perform a useful job should be a clue, unlike many academics who hide their incompetence behind a 'degree' and get paid for having an opinion.

“PM denies he's gone soft on republic
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has dismissed suggestions his passion for climate change action, a republic and gay marriage has gone missing.
"I'm not going to run a commentary on myself," Mr Turnbull told 5AA Radio in Adelaide when quizzed about where the "old Malcolm" had gone.
But he confirmed he would be voting `yes' in a flagged plebiscite on legalising same-sex marriage if the coalition won the July 2 election.
Originally published as PM denies he's gone soft on republic”


So which Labor PM do you want? Bill Shorten or Malcolm Turnbull?

Vote Australian Liberty Alliance!!!

BRICS Under Attack: Western Banks, Governments Launch Full-Spectrum Assault On Russia (Part I)

Every time i hear the mention of the British Royal family male members doing their military duty i laugh. Worse part is that there are a large amount of devoted Royalists that believe that the likes of Dirty Harry and Willy actually do their bit in the military. The whole Royal Military charade is one big Photo PR show, neither of them has ever been within 500 miles of any danger or front line action, even then they would have been surrounded by the best of the best REAL Soldiers that the UK has. When both Harry and Willy were asked about Black Hawk Helicopters, they answered, aren't they an American Indian Tribe ?

The owner of a weapons shop in Polykastron, Central Macedonia (near Thessaloniki) has claimed he has seen an increase of 300-400% in their sales, because of the locals' "fear of the people" - of the "refugees" who are scattered throughout their territory.
Given that the government refuses to close Greece's borders but instead is creating more hotspots for "refugees-immigrants" while those hordes are doing whatever they want, without any fear of the police, the Greeks have realized that they can no longer hope that the State will ensure their safety. The situation is out of control! Which is why they have resorted to buying guns for their own safety.
The situation developing is extremely dangerous and if it continues, "heated episodes" cannot be precluded.
In Athens however, they are still competing in sermons about "european values", when Europe has blatantly turned its back on us.
What's next?

No malware problems for me Rudolf. You're not trying to scare people off visiting the site are you?

".......It appears the totalitarian left is so determined to crush the conservative point of view that it had to be suppressed even when a leftist was on the same panel.

My debate opponent, Jeff Cohen, the founder of Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), was taken aback. It was as if the far-left censors on the campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz didn’t think he could hold up his end of the debate.
.
The topic was media coverage of the presidential campaign. Jeff and I have participated in such debates many times in the past, always getting a good reception and generating many questions. The contracts had been signed. New Paltz cancelled the morning of the debate.
.
The student paper said the event was cancelled after a sociology professor who helps teach women’s studies had caused a controversy over my appearance. She apparently had Googled my name, turning up a denunciation of my views from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC reportedly said I had made “controversial statements in the past about Muslims, climate change and homosexuals,” and that I was “an unrepentant propagandist for extremist right-wing causes.”

I was not allowed to respond to the charges before the decision was made to prevent me from appearing.....................
.
............The taxpayers who pay the bill for these Marxist re-education camps we call colleges and universities have to revolt against the socialism that rules higher education in America. Sanders wants to perpetuate that mind-set because he knows that, under the guidance of faculty from sociology, women’s and queer studies, students are being mind-controlled and groomed for jobs that don’t exist. Hence, they become more cannon-fodder for the revolution.
.
Perhaps the taxpayers who help fund New Paltz might want to know how such things happen in an atmosphere that is supposed to assure freedom of speech on campus. I certainly want to know.

And to think they admonished Prince Harry for wearing the Nazi uniform at that nightclub!!! What's Prince Charles' excuse? At least Prince Harry was still just a young guy just having some fun not knowing the implications of wearing a Nazi uniform. Prince Charles, however, knows full well Allah's distaste for infidels as is made clear amongst the Medinan revelations in the Qur'an, which abrogate the earlier Meccan revelations about Jews and Christians.

Charlie ... dressed like an Arab ... waving the sword ... like a kid in fancy dress

Why would a Lizard person waste their time with such things ?

Malware alert for that site. Avoid

Harry have you sent every pollie this article? I'd like to see them all repond with some proven common sense.

I wonder if it would be possible to become a temporary republic, just for the duration of Charles's reign. The lefty-green fool has only held one real job in his life and was a failure. During his active service in the RN he rose to Lieutenant and commanded the minesweeper HMS Bronington for nine months. In that time he managed to lose an anchor - a feat of extraordinarily poor seamanship, and an automatic court martial offence. He resigned from the navy rather quickly to avoid the embarrassment of being the first royal to be court martialled . . . and now he's an Admiral of the Fleet! No more losing anchors for our Chuck . . . moving on to bigger things - losing what's left of a dwindling 'Claytons' empire.

I thought I might attempt to educate you all in terms of what drives 12 year olds to become suicide bombers. Let us imagine the case of a young shepherd boy, let’s call him MoMo, who has just blown himself and a whole lot of other innocent people to buggery. Now, the question is: What about his 72 virgins. Well, we need to do a profiling exercise here to ensure MoMo is not disappointed. So:
Age: No problem – the big man’s preferences are well documented. So, 9 to 11.
Dress : Remember, this is post Burka, so I would suggest something extremely brief from the Armani swimwear catalogue..
Intellect: Well, this is a bit of a vexed question. It’s obviously no good providing graduate physicists for MoMo. He won’t be too happy when his virgins are twittering on about String Theory and E=MC sqrd

Unfortunately, this is where we clash with the 72 virgins allocated to the Iranian professor who was working on their first atom bomb and crossed paths with an Israeli hit squad. Hmmmmm
Sex: Well again, the professor is likely to demand something a lot more knowledgeable (but still a virgin of course) than a shepherd boy from a remote Afghan village where internet porn isn’t exactly freely available. In fact, what with goats having to wear underpants, MoMo is somewhat unlikely to have any idea about what it’s there for..
Hmmm, now that I come to think about it, I’m beginning to feel (and I need to be subtle here for fear of offending) that the whole thing might just be, well, em, a truck load of rampant bollocks…

So, it is proven that the average welder or brickie, or absolutely anyone with an iota of common sense, has clearer vision than than even the least befuddled academic. We had an academic (a female professor) rent our holiday home. She used a pot to boil water because she couldn't figure out how to turn on the new electic kettle.

"Perhaps we could understand if a welder or a bricklayer believed such a ridiculous notion.' Most tradies I know are far too wise to believe such elitist crap.
