Living next door to Islam

E-mail Print PDF

This post is to let our readers and supporters know that recently there was a serious Islamist attempt to close our operations.
Do not get me wrong - there are hundreds of daily hacking attempts to close us down permanently but these clumsy attempts are nothing but an inconvenience, a nuisance.

We can deal with it and the most "dramatic" product of such attempts resulted in a 2 day downtime of our site (big deal).

The latest attempt was different. 

The latest attempt to silence us was a direct assault on our democratic freedom of speech and expression.

An Islamist group hidden under a name of an individual (whose name for a legal reasons I do not wish to disclose ) has been trying to force our Internet provider to get us out of cyber-space.

Here is an excerpt of his e-mail:

I cannot believe that SingleHop is supporting websites that are used in defaming, accusing, harassing, invading and threatening Religious groups, Doctrines, Communities, Cultures, Values and Teachings. We were recently informed islam-Watch is conducting in anti Islam propaganda activities and is engaging in hatred speeches especially targeting Prophet Muhammad. Please have a look at the content of the website and articles posted on it and you would notice that the groups operation is to propagate misinformation and hatred.

I am not sure if our readers are aware but Australian Islamist Monitor and Islam-Watch web sites are technically looked after by the same person -yours truly, otherwise known as - Dan Zaremba.

Also both sites are set up on one physical server hosted by SingleHop.

While far from being a top expert on all web-based technologies I provide basic technical support for both sites.

And so although, technically speaking, the attack focuses on Islam Watch and my dear friend M.A.Khan , who is the chief editor of Islam-Watch , shutting down of the server would mean death to us all.

At this stage I have to praise our current host SingleHop, whose representatives behaved in the most professional manner.
After the initial routine check for computer security loopholes our host communicated my message to the Islamist accusers:

The actual complaint is about the CONTENT of one of the sites hosted

The complaint you have received from an individual calling himself YYYYYY is not about any malicious cyber threat but about the content which he doesn't like - I quote:

We were recently informed that islam-watch.org is conducting in anti Islam propaganda activities and is engaging in hatred speeches especially targetting Prophet
Muhammad.

I would like to stress here that our group has never been engaged in any ILLEGAL activity and I strongly believe criticism of any religion and/or political ideology/movement is our right which we are prepared to defend by ANY legal means.

The response of the Islamist was predictable, but NOT very specific:

This email was sent for Single Hop to investigate the matter. My name should] not have been mentioned. My concern should have been investigated and my name should not have been forwarded. This is definitely a site that is promoting hate speech, propoganda, and anti Islam activities based on lies and is promoting for the muslims to be punished, harmed and alienated. Single Hop platform is being used and unfortunately we believe that Single Hop is a contrbutor in this cause. Please note that if this issue is not resolved then our group would sort legal remedy as we believe Single Hop is failing to fulfill its own guidelines as mentioned in the TOS. Please allow me to discuss this matter with your legal team and inform them of potential legal issue in this regard. We have several postings from the website that we believe are considered harrasing, invading and threatening and we are ready to prove them in court of law.

To which (beautifically crafted) statement SingleHop responded:

I'm afraid that what you have here is a case of someone exercising their first amendment right to free speech. This is not an abuse case and not something we in support or abuse can directly act upon. While it would be one thing if the website were blatantly stating advocating violence against a person, race, or creed, then maybe this could be acted upon, but there is no obvious incitement of hatred or violence that I can see from reading a few of the articles. If you want I can forward this to our legal department and they can handle the matter but this is something that is beyond our ability to act upon. This is something you will likely need to discuss with a lawyer in order to proceed further on.

Again, as stated before, if you can provide *direct links* to the content in question that directly advocates violence against Muslims or people of Arabic descent in general, then we can do something about it. Someone simply speaking his/her mind about the topic of religion or politics in general is not something we can deem inappropriate or against our terms of service.

Please let us know how you wish to proceed.

I am not sure this is the end of the Islamist harassment but I'd like to stress here that AIM is not here to promote HATE but simply to stop Islam. We are a group from many ethnic backgrounds and representing many faiths who are deeply concerned with the Ideology of Islam.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

History - Tolerance Myths

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.

A great tragedy of the Islamic control of our universities and political correctness plus the fear of extreme violence if anyone dares question the roots and claims of Islam is ...that nobody dares question the roots and claims of Islam!!!  I want to stimulate interest and offer this summary of information on Mecca from (LINK) which discusses some problems with Muslim claims in a comparison of evidence supporting Islam/Christianity.
