Learning from Britain's Islamic migration mistakes

460-muslim-women_802356c.jpgSometimes the small things are the most noticeable.

Last Sunday morning I woke and turned on the ABC radio news. The lead items were the arrest of the ‘third’ man from the Brussels bombings, an extremist group in the Philippines and an update on the kidnap of schoolgirls in Nigeria.

All interesting stories with a common thread linking them together - Islam. However, that thread was never mentioned during the news report, nor was the word Muslim.

It was as if these were unimportant ‘asides’ to the context of what the world is confronting.

This could be termed media bias by omission; an accusation that can be levelled far wider than just the ABC. Any reasonable and diligent observer would notice the same failing in many sections of our media.

Bias by omission appears in many forms but seems particularly apparent when it comes to the ‘religion of peace’- a term applied by those who don’t or won’t understand.

Any analysis that may result in an honest (and hence critical) assessment of the threat of Islam is dismissed as Islamophobia, so too many think it’s better not to mention it at all.

The person credited with popularising this term of oppression is the former head of Britain’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Trevor Phillips.

Phillips commissioned “the Runnymede report” in 1997 which gave rise to the phrase ‘Islamophobia’; a term now synonymous with any criticism – legitimate or not – of Islam or Muslims.

He was reported this week as admitting he ‘got almost everything wrong’ when it came to his assessment of Islamic migration in the 1990s.

He has now conceded that the idealised concept of integration and assimilation suggested by the cultural Marxists has given way to ‘nations within nations’ brought about by the intransigent cultural attitudes of too many Muslims migrating to the West.

Phillips wrote “For a long time, I too thought that Europe’s Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britain’s diverse identity landscape. I should have known better.”

His comments were in light of an ICM poll released to The Times which found:

  • One in five British Muslims never enter a non-Muslim house;
  • 39 per cent of Muslims (male and female) believe a wife should always obey her husband;
  • 31 per cent of Muslims in Britain support the right of a man to have more than one wife;
  • 52 per cent of Muslims weren’t in favour of legalising homosexuality;
  • 23 per cent of Muslims support the introduction of Sharia law rather than British law.


Phillips went on to admit:

“Liberal opinion in Britain has, for more than two decades, maintained that most Muslims are just like everyone else… But thanks to the most detailed and comprehensive survey of British Muslim opinion yet conducted, we now know that just isn’t how it is.”

These concessions come too late for the UK. Already weakened by their slavish adherence to the dictates of the Brussels bureaucrats, the British political establishment have washed their hands of conserving their cultural heritage.

We see the same thing starting to happen here…although it’s not too late to do something about it.

Whilst under serious threat, we still have every opportunity to arrest the decline and undermining of our social mores. The fifth columnists attack from many fronts but the practice of cultural relativism under the guise of ‘multiculturalism’ is perhaps the most insidious.

People come to this country for many reasons but principally for the opportunity of a better life. They seek to escape the injustice, oppression and authoritarianism of former lands for opportunity and the rule of law.

By and large, our community welcomes those migrants who seek to embrace our values and our nation. However, Australians are increasingly intolerant of those who seek to recreate the very conditions from which they fled in their adopted land.

Unless the elected representatives – too many of whom have been living in denial – do the same mea culpa that Trevor Phillips has in England, the public divide and the discontent will grow steadily worse.

We have an extraordinary opportunity to learn from the errors of other nations. It is high time we heeded their expensive cultural lessons borne of bitter experience.

    My fears of islamisation of Australia have suddenly accelerated by a photo of a female muslim recently elected as a member of parliament forthe Labor Party standing next to Bill Shorten smiling like the cat that got the cream and another photo of Malcolm Turnbull hosting a group of muslims at taxpayers expense and appearing quite content to hear imams spew their dislike of our way of living. It is my belief that both these incidences act as encouragement to muslims to continue their quest for change to our laws.

    I used to be a hardcore anarchist, protesting up at Woomera 15 years ago to let all the refugees in. Now, as a result of the European migrant crisis, and constant Islamic terrorist attacks, I have shifted severely to the Right, especially on immigration issues. I’m voting Liberal for the very first time this election, and will be putting you first on the ballot, as I live in SA. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help your campaign.

    Congratulations for your intellectual integrity and honesty. In the past I thought you were too extreme for me. I was wrong. I cannot vote for you as a SA senator. But I can urge you to face off against the intellectually dishonest and politically correct members of your own party and Australia as a whole to protect this great country from the obvious looming harm if we don’t steel up and address our national integrity as something to be prized and treated with care.

    I totally agree with you – I live near Maitland NSW and a DA has been put into Cessnock Council for a mosque in quiet rural area. The indications are that Cessnock Council may approve the DA – this is another example of the “madness” that you have mentioned.

    I’ve always voted for Nick Xenaphon. He’s a great politician and serves the people well. But i have grown increasingly deeply troubled by the continued insanity of the mass immigration, pc police, selling off of our land to non Australians, selling out of our utilities to privatization, banking corporate elite criminals. But most of all the ‘muslim problem’ and the invasion by immigration. The loss of culture and the white guilt blaming and shaming. I’ve had a gut full of this insanity. Look at Europe.

    So in short Mr. Bernardi, i have never taken a lot of notice of you in the past but as of now, you have my vote and you will continue to have it until we get this country safe from this madness destroying the western world.
  • commented 2016-04-16 12:26:16 +0930
    I agree completely with you Elle – my local MP Bob Baldwin and Cory Bernardi are two of the few sane voices in the Government on this matter – the rest are too interested in making sure that Muslims vote for them. Very few Australians realize that Muslims formulated a plan in the 1950s for Australia to be a Muslim Nation by 2050. As you said, it is time for Australians (and the politicians) to wake up.
  • commented 2016-04-16 12:03:17 +0930
    Oh, the reality and common sense. So agree. Before we start to have ugly public confrontations between them and us, something MUST be done. Islam is no religion!!!! It is an ideology only , determined to destroy our Western way of life, our culture, with their sheer numbers and I read recently they could eventually outnumber us at some later date by their birth rate figures.
    No, they will never assimilate, even slowly as other cultures do. We as have other countries made a really awful mistake in thinking they may fit in. Never!!!
    So, England admits their error. We must!!!! We must toughen our laws up urgently. We are too complacent.
    What can be done. ??
    You are a voice of intelligence and sound reason. Thank our God in Heaven for your voice. Bless you. Elle

    The use of force and violence is more commonplace and prevalent in some families, communities, religions, cultural/ethnic groups and societies based on the views and values about adult prerogatives with children espoused. They may also be based upon the sociopathy of the perpetrators." Treatment of Complex Trauma Courtois/Ford 2016

    “Obama has argued that there will be no comprehensive solution to Islamist terrorism until Islam reconciles itself to modernity.."
    Obama: To Stop Terrorism Islam Must Reconcile Itself To Modernity April 4, 2016 by Michael Stone

    “It is very clear what I mean, which is that there is a violent, radical, fanatical, nihilistic interpretation of Islam by a faction … within the Muslim community that is our enemy, and that has to be defeated.” said Obama
    Obama: To Stop Terrorism Islam Must Reconcile Itself To Modernity April 4, 2016 by Michael Stone

    Rationally the last quote by Obama above “our enemy, .. that has to be defeated” cannot be realised without Obama’s first quote “Islam reconciles itself to modernity” being firstly realised , if such an Islamic/Muslim cultural ‘reconciliation with modernity’ is at all even possible, and this is the critical question which must be answered by our intellectual/political elite, even forced to do so if required, for as humanity does not put up with an individual whose behavioural variance includes ‘violent, radical, fanatical, psychotic nihilistic’ behaviour they are and rightly so removed from our streets, neither should humanity have to put up with a culture whose behavioural variance derived from its sacred codex construct of Other constantly, systemically from generation to generation given time and space informs within its behavioural variance ‘violent, radical, fanatical, psychotic nihilistic’ behaviour.

    No culture has a right to inform terror-genocide nor misogynistic behaviour be they are a religious or secular ideology.

    This means urgently developing the political will utilising State institutions and processes (Royal Commission) to analyse scientific research cultural/group psychology, sociology, security,… to determine beyond reasonable doubt whether or not the Islamic/Muslim culture will continue to deliver violence, rising social hostility and misogynistic behaviour to Australian streets and if so have these State institutions and processes (Royal Commission) recommend the steps by which the Islamic/Muslim cultural codex (textual and exemplar (messianic) template) which forms the ethical-moral-value-motivation and methodology of Islamic/Muslim indoctrination/education framework which systemically delivers increasing numbers of the ‘few’ altruistic aligners/enforcers/punishers from the so called ‘many’ non-radicalised, ‘moderate’ law abiding families, communities and institutions as the ‘few’ always have, will be removed from Australian private and public spheres so as to prevent in time such systemic Islamic/Muslim cultural social hostility, ‘violent, radical, fanatical, psychotic nihilistic’ behaviour and misogynistic behaviour from Australian streets.

    To whom it may concern: Time for a Royal Commission to determine if it is possible for the Islamic/Muslim culture to ‘reconcile itself with modernity’ so as to prevent terror-genocide against Other cultures

    Is the loss of just a single child and the unfathomable grief it tragically brings to a mother, to a father, to a sister, to a brother, to a nation, worth continuing to ‘manage’ the Islamic/Muslim cultures systemic terror-genocide and misogyny into our Public Square to enable such insidious Muslim behavior to escalate be it delivered from the ‘few’ ‘true believers’ or by the ‘many’ non radicalised, ‘moderate’ law abiding from whose ranks the ‘few’ are consistently created generation after generation?

    Judging by the responses here we want something done about the Moslem threat but the Government does not want to do anything.

    Why would that be so? Is there some external force at work?

    The Government is supposed to represent the people yet we have many examples where this is not so.

    No attempt to reduce Australian debt. As I understand it the IMF has told Australia to spend more.

    No attempt to control the adverse effect of mass immigration. Get more refugees says the UN.

    Reduce the use of coal (to generate electricity) say the Global Warmists based on the scare put out by the UN.

    There are many more examples of this type that are detrimental to Australians.

    And let us not forget the UN driven Agenda 21 and the very recent 2030 agreement gaily signed by the Australian Government on our behalf. There has been no information from the Australian Government about this and the impact on Australia.

    Again, who is our Government representing. Not us that is certain.

    Governments of both pursuasions will find very quickly that assimilation is not part of the Islamic Ideology, but instead the cultural takeover. I spent many years in the middle east and can confirm that world domination through Sharia is at the forefront of their ideology.
    The only problem is for the moslems who have this inbedded in their own Australian ideology is that they may be too late. The Chinese now own 44% of Australian soil and with the sale of Kidman Station in the Northern Territory being approved by ASIC for a Chinese buyer to stake their claim would in actual fact give them 51% ownership of Australian Soil .. They way I see it is that is a Takeover of Australia, the majority share, and will mean that we will in future work for the Chinese Government.
    I’m damn sure that the Chinese will see off this moslem invasion in Australia very thoroughly and next on the list will be us Australians as we become the subserviants of a Chinese Communist Government.
    Funny thing is we have leadership here in this country of both political pursuasions who are not only pathetic, weak and spineless but with the same breath cow tow to other world leaders and the UN that makes me utterly sick to the stomach to watch.
    It disgusts me that our leaders spew diatribe to Appease these dispicable cretins who take advantage of our shallow weakness. Totally UnAustralian !!
    Having been fortunate enough to be an adventurous soul and travel the world for years I can tell you that Australians are regarded as tough, resil`iant with a take it or leave it attitude born through a never give up history. Australians take offence to shallow, spineless, political pissants that embarrass us on both the National and World stage.
    Governments of both pursuasions have sold Austalians out to the first bidder(Chinese etc) at a rate never seen before. Our once beautiful suburbs are fast becoming battlegrounds for clans of different ethnic groups who have absolutely no intention of assimilating to the Australian way of life which begs the question of why they are here in the first place.
    Our Nation is becoming so divided that Australians are being forced into the notion that WE are the ones who should yield.
    Australians backs are now against the wall and since 1996 their has been over 6.5 million full time careers lost because of government incompetency. This should be called Australia’s greatest shame.
    Politicians are failing us dismally, Australians are being taxed out of existence, Australian Businesses are being forced to shut down and either move overseas as they cannot compete with cheap nasty imported crap for which we are forced to buy. Middle class Australia is dying and Australia itself is being gobbled up by foreign business and governments while we watch our weak spineless bureaucrats do nothing.
    The Chinese invasion is here. Mass immigration of useless third world cretins who cannot support themselves nor the country but instead beg for welfare at the taxpayers expense and all the while our pissant politicians yield to the UN. I’ve just been made redundant because the Chinese have bought the Darwin Port. I’m 55, the likelyhood of me getting any work at my age is around 0% which leaves me with what? I’ve a youngish family and the prospects on the horizon don’t look good.
    This is whats happening to our country, Australians are being taken for fools and our politicians couldn’t give a rats arse just as long as they get their pensions and gold cards. Australians are not represented, just dictated too and if we stand and protest we are called biggots, racists or terrorists.
    I truly hope the day comes when the Australian war cry finally sounds. Then maybe we can get our country back and set Import tarriffs at 80% and rebuild and retool our great nation and prepare ourselves for what ever the future brings and stop pretending to be something that we are not !!

    It’s time for our Australian Government and our Governor-General, to carry out the will of the people they represent.
    Your website has, and still is, bringing the truth to our Australian people. The truth has been said over and over again. We must be given the opportunity (as soon as possible) to have a referendum on this matter. It could be our last opportunity to initiate and DO something, to protect our country and its people from Islamic tyranny.

    Geert Wilders has fought for many long years to persuade is fellow Dutchmen about the sheer folly of allowing Muslim immigration. He has not used anything but the legal representation of a member of Parliament as his platform. I have yet to see a single Australian Parliamentarian (whether Labor, Green, Left-Liberal or Right-Liberal/Coalition) stand up in Parliament and fully denounce Muslim immigration (which they CAN DO under Parliamentary privilege)!
    Until SOMEONE has the bottle to do this (just as that courageous George Christiansen did with the Safe Schools Coalition Programme) things will remain the same. The Muslim population, which mentally and emotionally endorses the idea of a Caliphate,
    (whilst disapproving of the vile methods used by ISIS) will continue to increase; Australian taxpayers will continue to dish out welfare for their very large families (whilst being bastardised for being Islamophobic by the ungrateful recipients); the Foreign Minister will continue to cosy up to the Saudis; the Australian Defence Force will continue to parade Mona Shindy (who adheres to the Koranic values as indicated by her treasonous tweets) as the paragon of diversity success; inflammatory Islamic Speakers will still be
    allowed to come ashore into Australia and carry on their dirty work behind the closed doors of various mosques and the media will continue to publish rubbish stories about someone’s toe being cut off in a sawmill and being sewn back on! Senator Bernardi – the time has come for you and like-minded colleagues to CONFRONT the existing Government (while it still IS in Government) and DEMAND action on these contentious issues. I know 54 to 47 is not a good start, but one has to take courage and start somewhere!
    For the sake of all decent Australians – for the sake of the Anzacs – for the sake of our children and grandchildren – FOR HEAVENS SAKE ACT NOW or regret the rest of our lives!
