...it's just another cultural thing
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.
We are repulsed by it, but Muslims have no problem celebrating self harm. A primitive ritual, “Ashura”, is celebrated mostly by Shia Muslims to commemorate the martyrdom of Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in 680 AD.
Martyrdom is extremely significant to Muslims and the killing of Hussein was the catalyst that split the Shia and Sunni sects.
Shia was originally a political faction (the "Party of Ali") that supported Ali, son-in-law of the Prophet Mohammed.
A violent separation of Sunnis and Shias occurred when Imam Ali did not succeed as the leader of Islam after the death of the Prophet.
But Ali's son, Hussein, refused to accept this and it led to Hussein and his followers being massacred by Sunnis. The deaths of both Ali and Hussein gave rise to the cult of “martyrdom”.
In Iraq, today’s minority Shia Government of al-Maliki replaced the Sunni tyrant, Saddam Hussein, courtesy of the US, and is the driving force behind the current slaughter in what may now become the world’s first terrorist State.
Shias comprise only about 15 per cent of all Muslims yet Barack Obama thought a violent 1500 year history of Muslims killing Muslims could be healed with one “democratic” election.
So self-harm events on Christmas Island should be no surprise. It’s a cultural thing linked to this martyrdom stuff that assures heavenly rewards in the afterlife.
In a barbaric ritual where infants are inflicted with head wounds by their parents in celebration of the massacre of Shias that the Sunni-sympathetic ISIS killers are still carrying out right now. Work that one out if you can.
Scott Morrison’s efforts to repair the damage of illegal Islamic immigration is being undermined by the very same people who promoted it.
Muslims who applied for off-shore positions as interpreters are now being paid by the Government to undermine the Government.
They are coaching detainees in self harm and how best it can achieve a chance of being transferred to Australia’s mainland.
But it’s no good harming yourself if it doesn’t reach the media. Enter the ABC and it’s publishing arm ‘The Guardian On-line’ and Fairfax who are in constant contact with interpreters and English speaking detainees.
The trouble is that the self-harm stories are embellished, if not entirely concocted, leaving the Left media with egg on their faces.
It seems incredible that a newly elected government of any colour can be treacherously and proactively subverted in carrying out its election undertakings by a recalcitrant section of the media.
It seems downright appalling that a section of that media is a publicly funded Government broadcaster.
...and it’s inconceivable that this sort of traitorous behaviour would be tolerated in any other modern democracy.
