Sharia In Oz? Well I Never!

So a couple of weeks back we have the Australian Defence League's first stand against sharia in Australia.

Next come the news reports that muslims don't think that we should be worried about that sort of thing:
Australian Federation of Islamic Councils president Ikebal Patel said the group was provocative and wrong to believe that most Australian Muslims wanted to bring in sharia law.

"It's of great concern that anyone is out there trying to disrupt the peaceful social fabric of Australia," he said.

And then... we have Ikebal Patel coming out and saying, well, actually, we do want sharia here in Australia. Only a little bit of it, though. Just a smidge of sharia to make us feel more accepted.

In the meantime, we've got our very own version of Andy Choudary, the (not so) photogenic Shannon Conlon aka Ibrahim Siddiq Conlon prating all over the television that islam uber alles is what he's about, and he'll grab all the air time he can get to tell us what's good for us.

Especially if we give him $5000 for the privilege of being hectored by him.

(hint:yeah, he wants sharia)

Unfortunately for Ikebal Patel and Shannon, there was a bit too much scrutiny applied to this idea, and the talkback radio, letters to the editors and blogs showed that your regular aussies, and not a few immigrants themselves, don't want islamic jurispridence in this country.

So the Attorney General, Rob McClelland, had to come out and explain that:
"As our citizenship pledge makes clear, coming to Australia means obeying Australian laws and upholding Australian values," he said.

"Australia's brand of multiculturalism promotes integration. If there is any inconsistency between cultural values and the rule of law then Australian law wins out."

It's good to have public discussion on this, although it appears that Oscar Wilde was incorrect when he said that "the only thing worse than being talked about it not being talked about."

Looks like Ikebal's gone awol and the wagons are circling.

....รค smidge of sharia, to make them feel accepted?" Yeah right.

Of course they are accepted, just ask the Labor Party, there are so many coming into the country, that Labor have totally forgotten the people who are already here and need help.
By the way, give them an inch, and they will want the whole mile, or in this case the country.

The FBI has stated and proven that Sharia Fiance is THE major Islamic method for funding global Islamic jihad. The FBI has stated and proven tha EVERY Islamic group in America, from student groups on campus to major groups like CAIR, are ALL Islamic Jihadist front groups.

nThe licences collected for Halal goods and services is also used for global Islamic jihad.

Australia has all three of these hideous things already. This IS how Sharia Creep is slowly implemented by Sharia Creeps.

No, really. Colonel Neville.
