Eradicating Hostility to Islam in Australia

In order to help counter negative misperceptions about Islam generated by the beheading of Lee Rigby in Woolwich (and similar incidents), an Australian Muslim named Diaa Mohammed founded an organization called “My Peace”, which is dedicated to educating Australians about the true nature of Islam.

Mr. Mohammed appeared on Australian television recently to discuss his group’s new television commercial and how he hopes it will help ease the anxieties of non-Muslim Australians about Islam. His work may have been neutralized by some extent by the footage of last year’s Muslim riots in Sydney that the TV network chose to insert in the middle of the segment.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

To my mind, it would have been even better to have spliced brief shots of the Sydney riots and similar scenes alongside every assertion that Mr. Mohammed made about “what Islam teaches”. Christians in the audience might be reminded of Jesus’ words:

You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. [Matthew 7:16-18]

  1. 2.) “I have studied him (Muhammad PBUH) – the wonderful man and in my opinion for from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness.”
    George Bernard Shaw, The Genuine Islam

    3.) “I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him – the wonderful man and in my opinion for from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness.” ― George Bernard Shaw, The Genuine Islam

    Yes, George Bernard Shaw spoke glowingly of Muhammad – as well as Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin:

    see newspaper headlines: “Shaw heaps praise upon the dictators”

    ““You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence?
    “If you can’t justify your existence, if you’re not pulling your weight [garbled], if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.”

    I have no argument with the Australian Muslim community equating relating Muhammad with George Bernard Shaw. Muhammad, Shaw, Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin are all in the same league of genocidal thugs. Their choice of infamous man of influence is appropos.

    Then, at

    00:43 Aussie Narrator: “A man of sheer simplicity, and utter devotion to his people, having an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions”
    [image of Mahatma Gandhi]

    “Supremely successful and the most influential men in history..” (and the commercial continues on to mention their website)

    Interesting choice, Gandhi. Contemporary societies may be familiar with his name, but more likely with the Hollywood big screen adaptation of the life of Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi. Few are familiar with the less than attractive characteristics of Gandhi, such as:
    Gandhi used to greet his followers every morning by asking if they’d had a good bowel movement (an obsession of his) and he made a habit of drinking his own urine.

    Ok, Muhammad preferred camel urine, close enough.

    Here are some quotes from this illustrious historic character, Gandhi:

    “I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions…”
    “If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourselves, man, woman and child to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them.”
    “Hitler killed five million [sic] Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs.”
    “But if the Jewish mind could be prepared for voluntary suffering, even the massacre I have imagined could be turned into a day of thanksgiving and joy that Jehovah had wrought deliverance of the race even at the hands of the tyrant. For to the godfearing death has no terror. It is a joyful sleep to be followed by a waking that would be all the more refreshing for the long sleep.”

    Again, I can see why the Muslim community would admire this man. These ideas would certainly be beneficial to serving Islam’s supremacist interests and simplify jihad.

    Ironically, the Australian Muslim community thinks this video will improve the image of their belief system.

    Pass the popcorn.

    • anon —

      I have no problems with your using block quotes, but I need you to make sure you open and close them properly, with a pair of <blockquote>…</blockquote> tags for each.

      I think I’ve fixed the above comment so that it indents as it should.

      • Thank you . . .it was well beyond midnight when I attempted to post that comment and I obviously missed more than closing tags – as noted below @1:22 a.m. where I added the paragraphs my initial attempt to cut/paste the full comment from notepad failed. I apologise for any inconvenience this caused you.

        I remain fascinated with the Australian Muslim use of two historic passive & agressive models of society in a public relations commercial as if these representatives of unconditional surrender &/or genocide could somehow redeem the image of either their belief system or that of their prophet.

  2. I have created a petition to stop the propaganda campaign by MyPeace. Please sign and share. MyPeace is also running an event called “It’s Time” to premiere the ads and they are bringing in guest speakers, one of which is Siraj Wahhaj. He is a jihadist who wants America to become a muslim state under sharia law, he is an alleged co-conspirator of the 1993 WTC bombings and he has publically refused to condemn terrorist groups such as Hamas and al Queda. MyPeace have just posted a photo of two of its members with Wahhaj who has just arrived in the country.

  3. The above was a rather long comment I prepared and thought I cut/paste in it’s entirety . .. but obviously did not. Sigh.

    The commercial prepared by the Australian Muslim community suggests great historical men held great influence over mankind. Specifically, this commercial chose two infamous historic characters to equate relate to Muhammad – The despicable George Bernard Shaw and Gandhi.

    Shaw spoke glowingly of Islam and Muhammad in his day . . .

    1.) If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam.”

    . . .so it’s plain to see why contemporary Muslims would include Shaw as an influential man of history in their attempt to vindicate Islam’s reputation. But there is more that should not be overlooked:

  5. The best bit is the clips they inserted of Muslim psychos rioting and beating policemen were when he was stating “it’s a religion of peace”. Great bit of editing.

  6. The best thing this group could do is to publically announce that we don’t HAVE to like islam. Being allowed to criticise something without violent retribution goes a long way towards proving something/someone is peaceful. Even saying we don’t think muxh of the ideology is enough to get a lawsuit these days.
    We do not need to be ‘educated’, thank you very much, just shut up already.

  7. I suspect ozzies are just not insane enough to fall for this guy’s ‘misconception’ shtick. Apart from that, looking forward to the upcoming elections…

  8. I still don’t understand how a country with some muscle like Australia compared with the wimpish poms ever allowed these people to take up residence there after seeing what had happened in what used to be the mother country as little ago as 2005 and in view of the Bali bombings. It seems suicidal to me. And now New Zealand has opened up her doors to them but then NZ is a bit on the pinko side compared to OZ. But they were warned by one of their mps to look to the mother country and prevent NZ turning into the multicultural hell that is 2013 Britain. That was before the murder of Lee Rigby. I expect that mp, whose name I don’t know, is now saying, “I told you so”. Idiots all.

    • The mass immigration of muslims to Australian began in the 1970’s when our govt decided to allow Lebanese christian refugees into the country but was unable to discriminate against Lebanese muslims claiming asylum also. Since then we have ‘welcomed’ Kosovan refugees, followed by, within this century so far, thousands of Afghanis, Pakistanis, Iraqis etc who come via Indonesian fishing boats to Christmas Island & hence to Aus. Now add Iranians & Sudanese & Somalis among other Africans coming via boat from Indonesia, plus Sri Lankans claiming to be persecuted Tamils. Most are muslims but obviously not all of them are; eg the Tamils, however we Aussies are never told the break up of the asylum seekers religious following. Very few have ever been deported, they get visas & citizenship, welfare & family reunion. Some 20,000 of these boat people alone have arrived in the past year, & this is a country with a population of just over 23million. It is also dominated by a left leaning media, academia & govt, so I think you can get the picture.

  9. Is there some kind of law that prohibits a Muslim who is being interviewed from being asked about all the Jewish tribes that Mohammad had slaughtered?

  10. I do not have a dirty mind…but a woman using the name “my peace” is pretty STUPID!

    giggle giggle!!
