Tolerating the Intolerant Grows Harder

islamic facebookI love Australia. I’ve lived here all my life. But in the past decade a few things have had a negative impact on my enjoyment of this beautiful place. Let me list just a few.


I don’t want to accept these things. I don’t want to accept that a small, noisy, discordant minority is changing the way I live, and changing it for the worse. And I particularly will not accept that a concern for women’s rights and being appalled by clerics who call for the death of homosexuals makes me “intolerant” or consumed by bigotry.

Oh, and one last thing: I loathe being smeared with that ridiculous confection “Islamophobia” when I suggest that, as a secular Western society, we should never, ever tolerate the intolerant.

    I object to being lectured about my lifestyle and valuesand having the understanding of them twisted by Islamic sophists and their stupid fawning supporters in our media.

    Islam is a terrible and totalitarian religion. But most Muslims (ie born to it) in my experience live at their ease in Australia despite that fact.
    There is no push by them or anyone else to clear out of here and go live in Islamic countries, like that basket case called Pakistan.

      There is a fatal flaw in your argument. If they “live at their ease in Australia” (by which I assume you imply they accept many or most of our societal norms) then they are not true Muslims. Once the Caliphate is declared, they shall sing a different song, inshallah. I prefer to see the situation as “the terrorists are the snakes and the Muslim community the grass in which they live.”

    My feelings exactly and so very well expressed.

    I think the numbers here with a similar viewpoint are growing in number and exasperation.

    Small point. Whilst I disagree with the Halal tax, why isn’t it being used to fund deradicalisation? We don’t need Buddhist, Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Taoist programmes. Why is this so?

    Unless Islam is completely eradicated from within the borders of western countries, those countries will be subsumed and subjugated by it within 2 or 3 generations. It is alarmingly astounding that while terrorism by Muslims is a much discussed and debated topic, there is practically no awareness of the existential peril of western countries being taken over by Muslims, making them their own.
