Malcolm's Dinner of Diversity - But No Pork or Chardy On the Menu!
At a Ramadan dinner overnight Malcolm Turnbull praised Islam’s “emphasis on human diversity.” I suppose that’s one way of looking at it, when you consider the diversity in Islamic teachings.
Islam beheads Christians, Islam commands the genocide of Jews, Islam takes non-Muslim women as sex slaves. If they refuse sex with their captors, punishment includes being burned alive. Islam throws gays off buildings head first. If the homosexual survives, he’s stoned to death.
That’s a pretty diverse section of humans, Malcolm.
But let’s be fair. Let’s not accuse Islam of being some barbaric, stone age cult. Recently they’ve modernised from stoning gays to mass murder by assault weapons, again displaying their agility. Malcolm would be pretty impressed with such adeptness.
In the past Malcolm has made his views on Islam known, telling the ABC’s Q&A in 2011:
“It is important to us that we promote and encourage Islamic traditions which are moderate, which support freedom, which support democracy and which support Australian values….not in the sense of (gruff yobbo voice) ‘AUSSIE’ values, but in the sense of democracy, rule of law, tolerance, freedom. That’s what we’re talking about. These are universal values.”
Rule of law? Sharia?
Tolerance? Death to the unbelievers and gays?
Freedom? Convert to Islam or die?
These ‘universal values’ are all taught and commanded in Islamic texts. These are not extremist views, but taught in mosques.
Sitting at the head of Malcolm’s table of agility and diversity were celebrity Muslim couple, Waleed Aly and his converted wife, Susan Carland.
Waleed was seen wagging his finger, lecturing Malcolm most likely on what’s wrong with the West while avoiding the biggest elephant in the room - what’s wrong with Islam. Much the same routine as on The Project.
Waleed believes our unemployment, strip clubs and drugs inspire young Muslims in Australia to join ISIS, but what he hasn’t yet explained is why unemployed Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Rastafarians and atheists who visit strip clubs while high on eckies don’t feel compelled to chop off heads.
What I also don’t understand, and perhaps Waleed could help me out here, why does Allah say it’s okay to chop off heads but it’s not okay to like bacon?
But back to Malcolm’s Kirribilli dinner of diversity. There were no known gays, but there was a known gay hate preacher.
Come on, Malcolm. Where was the diversity?
Sheikh Shady Al-Suleiman, president of the Australian National Imams Council (ANIC), believes AIDS is a ‘divine punishment for gays’.
"Allah will send on them diseases they have never experienced before," he said in an online rant in 2013.
"What's the most common diseases these days, HIV, AIDS, that's so common, and there's no cure to it."
But let’s not get into the trap of being too judgemental. He’s not really homophobic. In fact this morning he denied he held radical anti-gay views. It’s not him. It’s his religion.
"I have previously noted passages in the holy Quran which do not support homosexuality."
Well, that’s alright then, isn’t it?
Maybe Orlando gay club mass murderer Omar Mateen wasn’t a gay hater either. Maybe he was just following the commands of the Quran and Hadith - the Islamic teachings:
Quran 7:80-84 ”…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.... And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)."
Quran 4:16 - "If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both."
Abu Dawud 4462 : The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.".
Abu Dawud 4448: ”If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death."
al-Tirmidhi, Sunan 1:152 - (Muhammad said): "Whoever is found conducting himself in the manner of the people of Lot, kill the doer and the receiver."
Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abbaas (Muhammad’s cousin and early Quranic scholar) : “The highest point in the town should be found and the homosexual should be thrown head first from it, then stones should be thrown at him.”
So Sheikh Shady isn’t homophobic. He’s just being a dutiful and devout Muslim,
Maybe he’s not a misogynist either when he says women will be ‘hung by their breasts in hell’ or that adulterers should be stoned to death. Or pre-marital sex by women should be severely punished.
“Remember that if there is an Islamic state the punishment of zina (sex outside marriage), the punishment of those who commit zina, if they have never been married before, they will be lashed 100 lashes,” he said.
“If they are married while they committed zina, or previously been married and divorced, and they committed zina, then their punishment is stoning to death.”
You can’t say he’s not being diverse?
What you can do, though, is praise Malcolm Turnbull for his own agility and diversity.
The ‘Turnbull Coalition Team’, once known as The Liberal Party has preferenced The Greens above the Australian Liberty Alliance - the new conservative party calling for smaller, smarter government, an end to political correctness, a pause on Islamic immigration and integration not segregation.
Meanwhile, the Turnbull Coalition Team stands for more spending, higher taxes, more political correctness, increased Islamic ‘diversity’ and constitutional change that segregates Australians into tribes.
Putting The Greens above a conservative party suggests either of two things:
- Malcolm identifies more with a loopy left party than a conservative one.
- He’s running scared of the ALA, a party siphoning off true conservatives from the Libs’ base.
