Good news follows some bad news

Recently some tragic news items have been followed up by good news that strengthens the belief in humanity, justice and peace. During the aftermath of Trump’s Muslim ban, it was Americans of all faiths, colour and ethnicities who came out in large protests against this unjust act. The American judiciary played its role in a brave manner in standing up to the executive power of the American President in putting its foot down against the ad hock executive order signed by Trump.Advertisements The former US Ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich attacked President Trump’s executive order on immigration and a passionate defence of refugees, warning that the “hottest places in hell” are reserved for those who “maintain neutrality” in times of “great moral crisis.” It is the Jews in US who are voicing their strong abhorrence of the Muslim registry, recalling the Nazi era where they were the targets because of their faith. The mainstream community raised $600,000 overnight to rebuild burned a Texas mosque while Jewish people in the town gave Muslims key to their synagogue in order to offer their congregational prayers A crowd-funding project launched by Muslim activists  raised more than $55,000 in one day to repair a vandalised Jewish cemetery in St Louis. Canadians of all shades and colour condemned the attack on Quebec city mosque and came out in large numbers to support and reassure...

Judge blasts AFIC groups

Analysis: “How to save AFIC from self-destruction”. On Wednesday 22 February, Supreme Court Justice Robert McDougall expressed his sympathy towards the Muslim community which was facing attacks from racists and begots and blasted AFIC leadership for their infighting under these circumstances. “It seems to me that there are far more important things that AFIC can be focusing on, one of which is the rise, fuelled by populist politics and government policies, of anti-Muslim sentiment in this country,” he said.Advertisements “It is something that I personally deplore,” He further added. A contesting former group of AFIC executive members have been accused of mafia-like tactics by occupying AFIC Zetland offices overnight, and locking out the current group of the executive members. The matter is now being contested by the two rival groups in court. The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils AFIC also known as Muslims Australia is  considered the umbrella body of Muslims formed in 1963 as AFIS and restructured in 1976 as AFIC, comprising of 9 State Councils and over 100 Islamic Societies....

“One Nation” silly policies

One Nation claims they are not racists, and, in all fairness, in view of the fact that Islam/Muslims are not a race, they are correct in that respect. But, some of One Nation’s policies on Islam appear to be self-defeating. They oppose the introduction of Sharia Law, not realising, it would seem, that it’s part of the Sharia for all Muslims to abide by the laws of the land in which they reside, and, beyond that, it is part of the Sharia for Muslims to pray, fast, and be charitable.Advertisements So Muslims in Australia are already following the Sharia. Does One Nation really want to stop them from doing all of that? Curiously, they also want to stop Muslims politicians from being sworn in to Parliament using the Qur’an but, surely, it’s preferable to have all Members of Parliament sworn in, to uphold the Australian Constitution on something they believe in. Muslims swear on the Qur’an to show their sincerity about what they are swearing to, but, it seems, One Nation’s paranoia has no bounds. The most concerning One Nation policy, relating to Islam, however, is that they want Section 116, of the Australian Constitution, changed. According to Wikipedia, that Section of the Constitution “precludes the Commonwealth of Australia (i.e. the federal parliament) from making laws for establishing any religion, imposing any religious observance, or prohibiting the free exercise...
