AUSTRALIA'S Muslim leaders have been "read the riot act" over the need to denounce any links between Islam and terrorism. The Howard Government's multicultural spokesman, Andrew Robb, yesterday told an audience of 100 imams who address Australia's mosques that these were tough times requiring great personal resolve.
Mr Robb also called on them to shun a victim mentality that branded any criticism as discrimination.
"We live in a world of terrorism where evil acts are being regularly perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr Robb said at the Sydney conference.
"And because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem.
"You can't wish it away, or ignore it, just because it has been caused by others.
"Instead, speak up and condemn terrorism, defend your role in the way of life that we all share here in Australia."
I've said for some time that our position should be "clean up your own house or we shall clean it for you." What began as a Muslim problem is now our problem and all of this whining that exudes from "the Arab Street" whenever someone dares question this cult of death, better known as Islam, has become tiresome in the extreme. The current Pope controversy is a perfect example. These people who regularly refer to Jews as "decendants of pigs and monkeys" have the audacity to be outraged when anyone so much as casts a wary eye at the violence and barbarity that is practiced on a daily basis in the name of Islam. Enough already!
We are involved in a war that will determine no less than the survival of our civilization. These are people who do not want peaceful coexistance, they want total dominance over us. Their goal is that all governments be replaced by Islamic law. When will we listen to what they say and take them at their word?
