For some time there has been a campaign to implement Sharia law in Australia, led by Muslim convert Ibrahim SIddiq-Conlon. Here are a couple of his rantings:
First on the Aussiemuslims forum:
“Firstly I sincerely apologise and ask Allah, Most High if any of my words in the past has caused any fitna or conflict in this forum. As Muslims we must stick together, be tolerant to our brothers and sisters in Islam (whilst having equal disloyalty to the Non Muslims) and this means from me to you all, and from you all to me. AlhamduLillah.” …On their facebook page in answer to ‘Gina Misdemeanor’ who asks, “so is the push to try and get sharia law? right across the board to the general public regardless of race,religion,sexual preference.? or will it just apply to the islamic community?” he writes:
My push/Our push is FIRSTLY to E.D.U.C.A.T.E the Australian people of their own failing system (in caseit is not obvious & clear enough). The failing system of democracy (Dumb-ocrazy) & the ‘secular’democracy that you so proudly ’love’ and ‘defend’ with your ‘oi oi oi’, your beer-drinking & swearing boozed-up, noisy, homosexual & jew-loving, Muslim-hating ‘culture’ of nothingness. (Sounds like he could fit in well with Fred Nile and the Christian Democrats.)“Today Tonight” reported on the introduction of Sharia by stealth that is going on at present:
Now a case arises where a man’s home was invaded and he was given 40 lashes for consuming alcohol:
A man has been charged over an alleged sharia law punishment where a Sydney man was lashed 40 times in his bed.
Police say the 31-year-old victim woke to find four bearded men in his bedroom at Silverwater, in the city's west, about 1:00am (AEST) on Sunday.
The men allegedly held him down on his bed and lashed him with a cable 40 times during the 30-minute ordeal.
The victim has told police he was being punished under Sharia law for drinking alcohol. Representatives of Sydney's Muslim community have condemned the attack. (This happens when something embarrassing happens.)
Detectives arrested a 20-year-old man at his Auburn home last night. He has been charged with aggravated break and enter and committing a serious indictable offence.The Attorney General Mr. McClelland has rejected such calls and actions, saying. “there was no place for Sharia law in Australian society, and the government strongly rejected any proposal for its introduction.”
