Please pass the bowl, I feel quite ill. I was unable to listen to more than a few minutes of this mis-guided nonsense How in all seriousness, can Adam Goodvach, supposedly who’s a ‘nice Jewish boy’, even consider that any country can co-exist with Islam, and furthermore that Australians have nothing to be worried about? The mind boggles. Two days ago in the Herald Sun, there was an article on this very issue. It received more replies than I have ever seen. 449 published, which means there would have been many more. From the 449 only 3 or 4 people said they had no issue with Islam and integration Has he seen what is happening in Europe and Scandinavia,? It’s only a matter of time before there is wholesale bloodshed there Islam is a totalitarian, religious and misogynist ideology. It cannot co-exist within our democratic system. I won’t post quotes here from the Koran, the Sura or Hadith, where instructions are clearly given what to do with Jews and Christians - and all kaffar for that matter too Islam demands and demands. We already have segregated swimming pools, Muslim only washrooms and toilets, Muslims who won’t work with women, Muslims demanding that this country, which has its roots in Christianity, not display signs of that religion. A few days ago, I heard that a Muslim demanded a Crucifix be removed from the wall in his room, in a Catholic hospital.!! He works as a paid consultant to the Centre for Excellence in Islamic studies. The centre that produced a book, to indoctrinate our children who have been raised according to Judaic/Christian values, into the ways of Islam “Learning from One Another: Bringing Muslim perspectives into Australian schools” This book, I might add has a great deal of misinformation Here’s a good insight into this abominable book http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/bid-for-islamic-teachings/story-e6frf7l6-1225890240936

To Libby Mitchell - are the Sudanese people you know on Facebook so fearful of the extremists that they are too scared to speak out about it?
Because a lot of Non-muslims do speak of their fears, and they"d be re-assured if they also heard practicing Muslims speak out about it.

The Centre for Excellence in Islamic Studies is an oxymoron. Islam is not and has never been "multicultural" and can"t be. Adam has never heard of taqiyya. The Reliance of the Traveller states lying is obligatory to advance Islam.

Can he really have never heard of the phrase “Islam or the sword”? Islam entered SE Asia peacefully but it was brutal in Africa; there were many wars in Arabia, and the Europeans were terrified of them. But hey, I am not a paid academic at a prestigious Uni.

Adam Goodvach is beholden to Muslims as they are supervising his higher degree and paying him for his consultancy etc. He is therefore likely to be rather a"kept" man, and the chances of him learning about or exposing anything nasty is very slim. He is not an impartial expert nor is he able to criticise freely. It would ruin his career. Hence his need to turn a blind eye to the inherent dangers of Islam, especially as the Muslim population grows. As we have seen in Europe and elsewhere,there is a direct correlation between Islam and violence, and it increases in relation to increasing demographics. Rotten ideologies kill, as history has shown, and masking it under the cloak of religion makes it even worse and "untouchable".

I agree with Adam Goodvach. I speak with A number of Muslims, mostly Sudanese, via Facebook. These people have exactly the same concerns and fears that we hold about extremist activities and beliefs. This Anti- Muslims propaganda must be stopped.

He lost me completely when he said in context how hard it is to explain to his muslim friends the difference between blowing up a house in which there is a terrorist (IDF action) and one in which there is no terrorist (Hamas action). Is he for real?Posted by Saruman on 2011-04-05 12:26:07 GMT
